~~~

It started with a kiss.

Admittedly, it was a moment of weakness on my part. But even the strong-willed have been known to fall for a hard body underneath a tailored suit and a five o’clock shadow coating a sharp jawline.

It didn’t matter that Jackson St. James was nothing but trouble. Trouble was just my type.

Been there.

Done him.

Not making that mistake again.

We were friends, a low-key affair we designed ourselves—over before we began. After all, together we made no sense.

Jackson is into sports. I prefer the arts.

He gulps beer. I sip champagne.

While I might not be described as humble, his arrogance is through the roof.

But when he asks if we can talk, my traitorous Louboutins come to a full stop. Although I’ve seen enough movies to know how these conversations go, maybe, just maybe, he’ll surprise me.

He has before . . .

We may have started with a kiss, but how will we end?

What happens when you break the cardinal rule?

I’m good at following rules.

Like, don’t sleep with your hot employees. That’s a good rule.

At least I was until that night. I blame the champagne and the tuxedo he wore.

There are several reasons why I shouldn’t be attracted to Elliot McPhee.

  1. He’s emotionally unavailable.
  2. He’s in his mid-forties—too old for me.
  3. He’s my employee.
  4. He’s jaded after a disastrous divorce.
  5. He’s leaving soon.

But he has gray eyes, and a deep velvety voice…did I mention he looks like Joshua Jackson?

I can’t resist.

It’s just a one-night stand before he leaves.

Except, things get complicated.

We’re talking two bright pink lines complicated.

Did I mention he has no desire to commit?

So, we agree not to try.

Except, we can’t keep our hands off each other.

Then I find out he’s not who I thought.

He’s so wrong for me. So why do I still want to create a family with him?

Along Came You is a forbidden age gap romance involving a secret billionaire and an accidental baby. Get ready to laugh, swoon, and be seduced by sexy billionaires willing to please their women!

Review: Antichrist by Amo Jones

Posted on

Meraki Mallory lived two lives. The one that everyone thought she did, and the one she worked hard to hide. She burned with her demons instead of running from them, but when Niko Davis rode back into town with a bag full of secrets, she knew she would need to start hiding them instead. Niko knew her inside and out, and if he saw even a smidge of her soul, he would see that she was no longer the girl he left behind…

When the president of the New York chapter of the Seven Knights MC dies, he passes the gavel down to Niko… but unknown to anyone else, that’s not the only thing he left him.

Niko fights for what’s his, and he’s only ever claimed one person in his life—Meraki. So when he rips away the walls she built around herself with his bare teeth, the secrets that she has so fiercely hidden away all of these years suddenly bleed onto the four unmarked graves laid out in front of his steel-cap boots…

It started with a bond that destroyed everyone around them…

…it ends with blood.

*this is a DARK ROMANCE. Please check triggers if think you may need to.

**Antichrist is not a retelling of Hunchback of Notre Dame, there are slight nods here and there toward the original tale.

MY REVIEW

“This kind of love doesn’t die out, it burns.”

“He and I are dangerous because we will always choose each other. No matter what.”

“Baby, I may be the Antichrist, but you’re definitely my holy grail.”

As one of my most anticipated reads of 2022, Antichrist delivers a sinfully dark tale that kept me on the edge of my seat and wondering what the heck did I just read?

Antichrist is a well-crafted and intriguing story that will captivate you from the very first page. From the moment you start reading this story, you are given tiny little pieces of the bigger picture. A story filled with darkness, intrigue, betrayal, secrets, lies, and oh, so much hate. A story that will have you questioning so many things. A story filled with twists and turns that you’ll never see coming, but will leave you with bated breath, wondering what will happen next. Your boundaries will be tested in so many ways. Dark romance lovers, you have been warned. Meraki and Niko’s story is not for the faint of heart.

Antichrist took my expectations and threw them out of the window. I just experienced one heck of a dark and delicious journey. When it comes to this book, all I can say is to go into it with an open mind. This book is anything but your typical dark read. Expect the unexpected and just let yourself experience the crazy ride this author is about to take you on. Amo Jones does not disappoint and I can’t wait to get my hands on whatever she decides to write next!

Release Blitz with Review: The Secret by Kristen Proby

Posted on

The Secret by Kristen Proby is now live! 

From NYT and USA Today Bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a forbidden romance. The Secret is the first in the Single in Seattle series!

Vaughn is everything I’m supposed to stay away from. Sexy. Cocky. And famous.

Ultra-famous.

I grew up in a family full of wealthy celebrities. My father, Luke Williams, is the celebrity of them all. A superstar actor and producer, my father knows the downside of living in the spotlight. And because of that, he sheltered my siblings and me from everything Hollywood entailed. We didn’t attend premieres. We weren’t photographed. There were no friendships with other celebrities’ children.

The limelight couldn’t touch us.

But now, at twenty-five, I’m ready to start my life, working for my father’s production company in downtown Seattle—until Vaughn Barrymore walks through the door.

He can’t keep his hands off me. He’s completely forbidden, but I can’t help falling for the sweet, complicated man.
When—and it’s when not if—my family finds out that I’ve been keeping this secret, will I have to choose between the man I love and those who mean the most to me? Or, by some miracle, can I have both?

MY REVIEW

The Secret is the first book in the exciting new, Single in Seattle Series. This book is filled with delicious romance, swoon-worthy moments, and just enough drama for any romance lover.

When we first meet up with Vaughn and Olivia things couldn’t have gone worse. To say they got off on the wrong foot would be a complete understatement. But, the one thing they had going for them was some insane chemistry. What started off as an enemies to lovers vibe quickly transformed into an undeniable romance that will leave readers rooting for their happily ever after.

The Secret had its fair share of drama and frustrations, but I loved every moment of it. I loved watching Vaughn and Olivia navigate their way through all the obstacles thrown their way. They had to learn to communicate with one another, no overreact and decide for themselves if their romance was worth fighting for.

Now, if you’ve read Kristen Proby’s With Me In Seattle Series, you will see quite a few familiar faces. I loved reconnecting with all of them and seeing all of the cousins interact with one another. Olivia’s family is amazing and I loved how they looked out for her and always had her back.

In the end, The Secret was just like coming home. I enjoyed everything about this book from beginning to end. Olivia and Vaughn were a force to be reckoned with. They more than delivered on the enemies to lovers/forbidden romance vibe. I couldn’t help but fall head over heels for this story and am really excited to see where this series is going to take us next. Kristen Proby fans, you won’t want to miss The Secret.

Review: The War of Two Queens by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Posted on

War is only the beginning…

From the desperation of golden crowns…

Casteel Da’Neer knows all too well that very few are as cunning or vicious as the Blood Queen, but no one, not even him, could’ve prepared for the staggering revelations. The magnitude of what the Blood Queen has done is almost unthinkable.

And born of mortal flesh…

Nothing will stop Poppy from freeing her King and destroying everything the Blood Crown stands for. With the strength of the Primal of Life’s guards behind her, and the support of the wolven, Poppy must convince the Atlantian generals to make war her way—because there can be no retreat this time. Not if she has any hope of building a future where both kingdoms can reside in peace.

A great primal power rises…

Together, Poppy and Casteel must embrace traditions old and new to safeguard those they hold dear—to protect those who cannot defend themselves. But war is only the beginning. Ancient primal powers have already stirred, revealing the horror of what began eons ago. To end what the Blood Queen has begun, Poppy might have to become what she has been prophesied to be—what she fears the most.

As the Harbinger of Death and Destruction.

MY REVIEW

The War of Two Queens is the highly and much anticipated fourth book in the Blood and Ash series by Jennifer Armentrout. War is coming and the stakes for Casteel and Poppy have never been higher. All I can say is get ready. Casteel and Poppy’s story is about to take you on a fantastical journey that will leave no stone unturned and is certain to put your emotions through the wringer.

There is so much I wish I could say about this book, but I’m keeping this review 100% spoiler-free. The War of Two Queens is best enjoyed if you dive into it blind and experience the wild ride for yourself.

This book was everything I had hoped it would be and then some. The War of Two Queens picks up right where The Crown of Guilded Bones left off and sucked me in from the very first page. Wild horses couldn’t stop me from reading this book. I devoured it in just two short days and with a book that sits at 626 pages, you know that is no easy task. I was utterly consumed by this story.

From completely unexpected twists and turns to shocking revelations, an unforgettable love, and ride-or-die friendships, this book had it all. I had no clue what direction this story was going to take and it was definitely fun trying to figure it all out. The complex world this author has created kept me on my toes and just keeps getting better and better. It is so unique and intriguing. I love all the fantasy elements and the amazing characters that fill the pages.

The War of Two Queens has left me completely and utterly spent. My emotions are all over the place in the best possible way and all I can think of is what an incredible ride this story has just taken me on. With each book, I fall deeper and deeper in love with Casteel and Poppy. Their story continues to leave me breathless with anticipation and feeling so much love. And while The War of Two Queens answered so many of my questions, in true fashion, it left me with a whole lot more.

The War of Two Queens is a heart-pounding and epic thrill ride that will leave readers glued to the pages and desperate for more. I can’t wait to see what this author has in store next for Poppy, Casteel, and friends.

Review: Decisions We Make After Midnight by Rachel Higginson

Lola Ellis has a picture-perfect life. Until she doesn’t.

Successful, engaged to the man of her dreams, and focused. Until suddenly she’s questioning her position in the family company, her fiancé’s fidelity, and everything she thought she knew about life.

On her way to Florida to open a new branch of the family business and meet her fiancé Owen, she unexpectedly detours to visit her best friend in Durham, North Carolina. What was meant to be a week of rest and relaxation as she gets her mind right stretches into a permanent TBD. She can’t face the future waiting for her in Destin, Florida. And the longer she stays in Durham, the less she wants to.

Will English is an uptight, arrogant bartender who keeps scaring away waitresses. Too busy micromanaging his co-owning siblings, his patience is thin when it comes to the rest of the business. When Lola takes a job at his bar to fill her time while she decides what to do about the mess her life has suddenly become, he decides not to engage with the clearly underqualified new waitress. She’s clumsy, clueless, and costing him too much money every time she gives away another round of drinks because she’s messed up again. And yet… there’s something about her that keeps him from dismissing her.

Together, after the bar closes every night, they forge a friendship that doesn’t fit into either of their lives. Lola’s stay in Durham is only temporary. And Will’s roots in the city are deeply established. A relationship doesn’t make sense. But sometime after midnight one night… they decide they don’t care.

MY REVIEW

“All I wanted to do was hold his again. And again. And maybe keep holding it until my world was right side up again. Because somehow, I knew, I just knew, that he would be the one to help me get everything in order again if I let him.”

“It was like I’d been frolicking along this sidewalk of easy and fun, totally carefree. And then this black hole had just opened in front of me, and I’d fallen in without missing a step. Suddenly I was swallowed whole by emotions that were so much bigger. So much grater than I was ready for.”

Decisions We Make After Midnight is the exciting new release from author Rachel Higginson. I don’t know about you guys, but I have been anxiously waiting for something new from this author, and she does not disappoint!

Set in Durham, North Carolina, Decisions We Make After Midnight follows the story of Lola and Will. Lola lived the picture perfect life until one day it all came crashing down. Now she finds herself questioning her family’s motives and her life decisions. Unsure of her next move, Lola seeks refuge with her bestie in North Carolina. Lola had hoped that her last minute detour would provide her with some much needed clarity and a handle on her future. But what Lola hadn’t planned on was Will….

Decisions We Make After Midnight pulled me in from the very first page. I felt an instant connection with Lola and was excited to see where her story would go. You see, when we first meet up with Lola, she’s in a bit of a personal crisis. Her life has been turned upside down and the only thing she knows is that she needs time before making any big decisions. Her trip to North Carolina ended up being more than just a soul searching journey for her and I enjoyed every moment of it. Lola grew a lot as a character and learned to stand up for herself, but to live the life she wants to live. I enjoyed her banter with Will and how she didn’t put up with his broodiness. Speaking of Will, I knew he was going to be amazing right from the get go. He was broody and seemed like one mean dude. But there was so much more to him than meets the eye. Will has a heart of gold, he just need the right person to bring it out.

The tension and banter between Will and Lola was off the charts. I loved how they took things slow and really got to know one another. I appreciated how Will didn’t try to rush Lola into anything or make any life altering decisions. They met at the absolute wrong time in Lola’s life, but I loved how Will opened her eyes to a world of possibilities and made her see didn’t need perfect to live a happily life. Will and Lola were an undeniable force and I was definitely rooting for them to get their happily ever after.

The Decisions We Make After Midnight is an enjoyable read from beginning to end. Will and Lola captivated my heart from page one and I couldn’t help but devour their story. The Decisions We Make After Midnight is well written and entertaining. It’s filled with love and second chances. It’s got a sweet, slow burning romance. It’s got just the right amount of drama. And is a story of finding oneself, learning to stand up for yourself, and recognizing real love when you find it. I fell in love with every aspect of this story and am so excited to dive further into this series. This book checked off all of my boxes and all I can say is “Give Me More!!”.

Charlotte aka Charlie

For years, my acting career consisted of bit parts in forgettable Hallmark movies along with a few embarrassing commercials for feminine hygiene products. But then the fates finally aligned, and I’d been given my big-budget break: the lead in an Edwardian era social drama set on a sprawling estate in Sussex. Everything was going great until I discovered my costar and current flame was banging his way through the upstairs and downstairs of the cast. That’s when this Southern girl channeled her inner Scarlet O’Hara by hurling a vase at him. Turns out the owner of said vase, the infuriating Earl Whittingham, did give a damn about the priceless heirloom. Just as I was imagining a life of servitude to pay him back, he gave me an unorthodox proposal.

Randall “Rand” Halsey, Earl Whittingham

Being a member of the British aristocracy isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. As a matter of fact, it can be a royal pain in the ass, especially when it comes to the required social season. The only thing worse than having to attend all the myriad of events from horse races to garden shows is attending them single. Throw in the likelihood of running into my ex-wife with her new boy-toy and it’s bloody insufferable.  I’d resigned myself to keeping a stiff upper lip while drowning my sorrows in Laguvulin for the month when an opportunity fell into my lap. Actually, it crashed into the wall of my drawing room. As an actress, Charlie is used to playing a part, but she’ll need to turn an Oscar-worthy one to prove she’s in love with me.

Excerpt 

Copyright 2021 @Julier Archer 

Luke and Tasha’s suggestion ate at me all day. I had plenty of time to think on the journey for a client meeting, then on the way back. At the same time, I’d browsed the local Ealynn Sands estate agent sites for rental properties. There wasn’t much around unless I wanted a one-roomed studio near the marina for an extortionate price or to spend all my salary on a massive property I’d only use about three rooms in, which I wouldn’t be able to afford either. I would have to bite the bullet and call Sara.

But how would Ems react to me moving in? We hadn’t been in touch since I went to New York. But needs must. I waited until I got back to the station before calling Sara; signal on the last part of the journey was dodgy at the best of times and I didn’t need it cutting out when I was in the middle of this conversation.

Standing by the bus stop, I dialled and waited.

“Hello?” A female voice I thought I recognised answered.

“Hey, is that Sara?”

“Yes…” A note of suspicion crept into her voice, no doubt assuming I was a cold caller about to offer her compensation after an accident.

“It’s Mason. Mason Miles.”

A shriek down the line had me holding the phone away from my ear. “Oh. My. God. Mason!”

“Tasha gave me your number. She’s moving in with Luke and there’s a spare room at yours.” There seemed little point in beating around the bush.

“I never expected you to call me though. What will Ems say?” Sara laughed.

“No idea, haven’t spoken to her in a while.”

“Huh. And don’t I know it.” Sara paused. “It was a bit of a shitty thing to do, Mason.”

“What? Tell her my plans to go on a secondment to further my career, offer her the opportunity to come with me and have her walk out on me? It wasn’t all one-sided, you know.” I don’t know why I felt the need to defend myself, given that all of this had happened eons ago. But I needed a place to live and without Sara’s support, I wouldn’t get a roof over my head.

Sara let out a sigh. “Yeah, you’re right. Anyway, that’s all water under the bridge and I expect you’ve got some hot chick in New York, so there’s no need for Ems to stress.”

I didn’t answer and let her think that was the truth. “About this room?”

“Oh, yes. Look, Ems is working late tonight, why don’t you come around about six and see what you think.”

Suddenly, I had a vision of the future where Ems and I would be taking turns in working late in order to avoid each other. But I needed a place to stay and if that was how it would be, I’d have to deal with it.

It was rude to stare. I knew this.

I knew this, and I didn’t care.

Want to know why?

The hottest man I’d ever seen in my entire life just walked into The Splinter.

It felt cliche to say that it was like that slow-mo entrance you see in the movies, but it really was like that.

A group of guys came in before him and he trailed them. It was like God smiled down on me when he did, too.

It was raining, so his hair was wet. Once inside, he reached up to run his hands through his hair, shaking the water out of it.

And his hair was gorgeous. This thick, lush brown color that was begging me to go over and help him shake the rest of that water out.

I didn’t because that would be weird. Much weirder than me being a creep from across the bar as I watched him join his friends at the table they’d claimed near the pool tables.

Those same pool tables I was sitting at with my friend and her friends. Though I wasn’t sure how good of a friend she was with them because there was something off about some of them.

They were nice, but catty. I’d never had many female friends growing up because I was a little awkward and lived in my head. So I also wasn’t the best at reading people.

Maybe my read was wrong.

But I didn’t think so.

They smiled when Cass introduced me, and they tried to include me in conversation initially. But then I was quickly forgotten by everyone except for Cass.

I was okay with that. I liked people watching.

Hence me noticing Mr. Good Looks when he walked in.

And I wasn’t the only one to notice him, either. The Cat Pack had as well.

“Did you see who just walked in?” one girl, a redhead, breathed.

“I did. I’ve never known him to come out before,” a brunette responded.

Cass sent me a look, nibbling her bottom lip, before looking back at her friends.

What was that about?

I sucked on my straw, it making the awfully slurping sound to tell me my drink was empty. That was my cue.

While the women were caught up in discussing Mr. Good Looking and his hot friends, I slipped away. Instead of going right for the bar, I veered toward the jukebox. I wasn’t too interested in picking a song to play, but I wanted some time away from Cass’s friends.

I flicked through the selections before digging a dollar from my pocket and feeding it to the machine and picking my songs.

Knowing I’d have to wait awhile, I turned toward the bar.

As I wound through the thickening crowd, I couldn’t help looking toward Mr. Good Looking to get another fix.

I caught sight of him and did a quick scan before forcing myself to look in front of me and not at him.

He would star in my fantasies later tonight

When Kasey Ruggieri returns to her hometown after her fashion design business implodes, she barely recognizes the handsome guy with a smokin’ body who comes to fix the HVAC as her brother’s best friend. The skinny teenager she once knew is gone, and when Asher strips off his shirt to work in the boiling heat, Kasey can’t take her eyes off his glistening, muscular chest. Now she needs more than air conditioning to cool her desires.

Asher Wallace has had a crush on Kasey ever since he realized girls don’t have cooties. She’s beautiful, talented, and fun. But as his best friend’s older sister, she’s completely out of his league. Once Kasey left Oak Bend to pursue a fashion career in New York City, Asher shelved his boyhood crush and moved on from his college hockey days and into the family’s heating and cooling business.

When Kasey and Asher finally connect, there’s enough heat to melt a Michigan winter. But when Kasey stumbles onto a new, profitable fashion venture, will she leave Asher behind for the bright lights of the big city once more? Or can Asher prove to Kasey that love and success can be found close to home?

Welcome to Oak Bend, where blue-collar hotties work hard and love even harder, especially when it comes to landing their happily ever after.

About Jaymee Jacobs 

Jaymee Jacobs is a USA Today best-selling author and author of the Dallas Comets series. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh with a BA in English literature and a psychology minor.

Her books have the same two themes: hockey and the “millennial” experience. The first is because she’s a die-hard fan (particularly of the Pittsburgh Penguins). The second is because she felt that there weren’t any books to which she could personally relate. So she began to write the stories she wanted to read. Her books spotlight those in the up-and-coming generation as they navigate this new era of ubiquitous technology, online dating etiquette, and what it means to “adult.”

When she’s not writing, you’ll find Jaymee curating her cats’ Instagram account, listening to true crime podcasts, scrolling through Pinterest for fructose-free recipes, or yelling at the TV during Penguins games.
