Brayden

I’m a goddamn prodigy. It’s true. Ask anyone.
I threw my first curveball the day I was born.
 
The whole town is waiting on me.
To live up to my father’s famous name. To reach for the stars. 
 
All I want to reach for is her.
 
But Ashley is the sweet addiction I can’t afford. She’s my best friend’s sister. Hell, she’s practically my little sister. For years, I’ve protected her from guys that want one thing. What happens now that I’ve turned into one of them? Who’s gonna shield her from the way I was made, from my little white lies and from what I’m about to become?
 
My game plan sounds simple: Pitch my way into the Major League draft and stay out of Ashley Foster’s pants. That first part may be statistically difficult.
 
The second feels damn near impossible.
 
 
Ashley
From the moment we met, I knew he was trouble.
The kind my mother sent me to find.
The type that ruins you for any other brand.
 
When we were young kids, I didn’t know what to call the frogs and butterflies that danced in my belly whenever Brayden came near. Now I know they have a name.
 
Those three little words that could heal or destroy him.
 
Before Brayden, my life was normal. And then it wasn’t. It couldn’t be. Ever again. How was I to know stealing his seat would change all our lives?
 
Anger and forgiveness share two halves of the same coin.
 
Our story might make you choose sides.

Cover Reveal & Pre-Order: Into Thin Air by Kristina Beck ~ #ContemporarySportsRomance ~ Release Date: September 12, 2019

 

Title: Into Thin Air
Author: Kristina Beck
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance
Release Date: September 12, 2019
Cover Design: Okay Creations
 
Fed up with the endless demands of her job, Ellie seeks solitude from the chaos. As if by magic, she finds herself all alone in an exotic hotel. That is, until she meets the gorgeous guest next door. As time melts away, Ellie falls hard for Sam. Then he vanishes into thin air, taking his love with him. When he suddenly reappears, he isn’t the Sam she once knew, but her aching heart tells her otherwise.
Sam finds himself at a crossroads in his soccer career when a permanent injury forces him to make a difficult decision. He thinks seclusion in a luxury hotel is what he needs, until he sees the fiery redhead, Ellie. She has no idea who he is and becomes the woman of his dreams.
Like any vacation, it must come to an end… just not in such a tragic way. Sam thinks he’s responsible for Ellie’s death, and when he discovers she’s alive, she doesn’t greet him with open arms. The relentless fight for her dignity and career threatens to end their passionate reunion.
They said their love was infinite, but anything can change when reality comes crashing down.

I cross my arms. “Can you change your past? That’s about the only thing that could save us, and we both know that’s impossible.”
“Wow.” He steps away from me, shock and disappointment mixing with the tears on his face. “I can’t believe you said that, that you’d throw my past in my face. Whatever happened to always look forward, never back, Ellie? You’re such a hypocrite,” he snaps.
“I guess I am.” I remove his apartment key from my key ring and place it on the table. “Throw my key out. I don’t need it anymore.”
I walk toward the door, but he steps in front of me. He cups my face gently and kisses me like it’s our first time again. His love transfuses through my veins and gathers in my heart where it’ll always stay. The taste of our tears mix with the fear of letting go.
He leans his forehead against mine. “You’re my first and my last love, Ellie. Our love is infinite. We’ll find our way back to each other. We’ve done the impossible before; we can do it again. Go find your peace. I hope it leads you back to me.”

“Elskede, I just wanted to let you know how much I missed you today. I can’t wait to see you in my jersey sitting in the stands. So sexy. More than that, I can’t wait to see you wearing nothing but my jersey ;)”

What starts as a routine run becomes anything but ordinary for sexy NHL player, Jude Christensen, when he stops to rescue a yowling kitten in distress. He rushes the mauled kitten to Dr. Megan James, the most gorgeous woman he’s ever seen. Even though she seems reluctant to respond to their instant chemistry, Jude is used to working for what he wants.

A new town, a new beginning, and a new life put Megan at a safe distance from the man that nearly killed her. But when her past returns to threaten her once again, the Savannah Heat captain walks a fine line; Megan is suspicious. She is hyper-alert to the dangerous difference between a man’s natural desire to protect his loved ones, and the need to own and dominate. Once fooled is more than enough for Megan. Will Jude be able to make her safe without interfering with Megan’s need to fight her own battles?

Jude’s Sweet Fire is the first book in the Savannah Heat series. Boasting a real hero, a spunky heroine, fun and sassy friends, Southern charm and danger. The passion in this suspenseful romance will leave you breathless with satisfaction.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Jude's Sweet Fire: Savannah Heat Book 1 (Savannah Heat Series)Jude’s Sweet Fire: Savannah Heat Book 1 by Jessica McBrayer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Who doesn’t love Hockey Romance? This trope is my favorite of the sports genres. Jude’s Sweet Fire is the first book in a brand-new series from author Jessica McBrayer. While this book is sweet and has likable characters, there is also a suspense aspect which gives the book the push it needed not to be boring.

Jude is the captain for the Savannah Heat and Megan is currently a veterinarian. Jude is not the alpha you would expect from a hockey player. I would say his persona is more gentlemanly. He is a loyal, considerate and protective man. Jude loves his family and his attraction to Megan brings his protectiveness to the forefront. This book has some dark moments caused by the suspense going on. I don’t want to give anything away so I really can’t say more about that.

Megan is a sweet woman. She truly loves her job and her heart swells with love when it comes to the animals she cares for. This says a lot about her character. Megan has danger following her but luckily for her, she finds herself receiving the attention from a gorgeous, protective hockey player. And while experiences from her past are telling her to keep to herself when it comes to men and relationships, there is something safe when it comes to Jude in addition to making her heart soar. I will say that Megan was very lucky to have Jude come into her life when he did.

This book is written well and flows nicely. Because this is the first in a series, the author introduces us to quite a few characters. These secondary characters gave the book more depth and has definitely piqued my curiosity as to what is coming next in the series. I’ll definitely be looking out for more.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Author: A.S. Kelly
Genre: Contemporary/Sports Romance
Release Date: May 20, 2019

I’ve gone back: back to the place where it all started, where somebody else had the final say.

I did it out of love for my family.
I’m trying to rebuild my life, to stay standing, even though my legs hurt like hell. I’m concentrating on myself, on my career.
 
I’m ready to tear everything apart to try and keep it all together. To hate without feeling guilty for it, because hating others is the only way I know how to keep myself – the person I am – going; and I was doing it. I was strong. I was untouchable. I was invincible.
Actually, I was deluded.
I didn’t consider everything. I didn’t consider her: the only woman I really want to hate, but who gives me hope. A woman who turns your world upside-down, who entwines herself into your life even if she can only stay until tomorrow.
I’m not looking for tomorrow: I want a future. But I don’t believe in that anymore.
And I can’t turn back, not even for her.
My name is Ryan O’Connor, and I’m about to make a huge mistake. I’m about to let her believe in me, to take a chance. But she’d be betting on the wrong man. I’ve never been the right one. And she’ll be left accepting her bitter defeat.
