“...And watching as we lost six of the seven preseason games gave me a bit of heartburn, as well, but I’m holding out hope for this year. We’re skating well, have solid puck handling, the team looks strong. Much stronger than last year, but we’ve still got a long way to go.

Admittedly, I couldn’t let go of some of my key players, no matter how much of a disgrace they’ve been to the team. But I’ve got my eye on one of them in particular right now. Kingston Rush, a.k.a. Mount Rushmore.

Here’s a guy who was the league’s top goalie two years ago, with three Vezina Trophies under his belt. Quite frankly, he’s a beast and a huge asset to this team—when he’s on his game, that is—so I’m hoping a little extra attention might go a long way.

I have an idea of what got his jock strap in a twist; I simply need to dig deeper to get to the root of it. Something, or rather someone, turned him from the easygoing, mysterious badass to an instigator who started picking fights with everyone.” - Phoenix Pierce, Owner - Austin Arrows

RUSH
The SEASON

​Coming August 16, 2016
Kingston Rush

Becoming a goaltender in the NHL is the only thing I ever wanted for myself.

Goal accomplished.

Two years ago, I was the best goalie in the league, for the third time. With our Stanley Cup win, the Austin Arrows were on top of the world. Nothing could possibly bring us down.


Wrong.

Turns out, even when you’re at the top, you can find yourself back at rock bottom.

But it gets worse.

Not only did the team fall from grace, then I did too. I was accused of something I didn’t do. And now I’m being forced to repair my tarnished reputation.

Only I don’t know how to do that.

When the suggestion is made for me to pull off this ruse for the media, I know what I’m getting into. I also know there’s only one right answer.

But it’s complicated, and I’m not the only one who could get hurt.

There’s only one major problem.

I can’t say no.

REVIEW 

Wow, Nicole Edwards has done it once again. I could not get enough of Kingston and Ellie. I fell in love with both characters right from the beginning and couldn't wait for them to get their HEA.  They were truly perfect for each other in each and every way. 
 
Kingston is recovering from some bad PR and the team thinks the best option for him is to show the fans he is in a steady and committed relationship.  He is not initially sold on the idea until the team owners decide his best friend's sister is the perfect "fake" girlfriend.  What no one realizes is that Kingston has had feelings for Ellie for a long time, but didn't want to act on this feelings out of respect for his best friend.  Now all bets are off and it is time to show Ellie he is the only man she will ever need.
 
Ellie is a single mom who has no intentions of dating anyone right now.  However, when she is approached to become Kingston's girlfriend, she can't help but be intrigued.  She has lusted over Kingston for more years than she wants to count and now she may get the change to act out some of her fantasies.  She just has to remember that the relationship is not real so she doesn't risk her heart.  That proves to be easier said than done.
 
I absolutely can't recommend this book enough.  I loved the journey Kingston and Ellie went on in order to find out what really matters in life.  I loved their easy relationship and how well they fit together.  Nicole did a wonderful job of writing a story that just sucks you in and keeps you there until the end.  I can't wait for the next book in the series, hopefully it is about Ellie's brother Spencer as I would love to get inside his head!

Review of SEDUCING THE BOSS by Mari Carr and Giveaway!

Seducing the Boss Tour Banner

Seducing the Boss

by Mari Carr 
Publication Date: August 1, 2016 
Genres: Adult, Entangled Pulse, Contemporary Romance

Seducing the Boss Cover

BUY:

Synopsis: Kellan James is unwinding at Score when he spots the last person he’d ever expect to find in his favorite bar. Sara Connelly—ER nurse, do-gooder, charitable crusader, and frequent pain in his ass. Both grew up privileged in swanky Southampton, but that’s where the similarities end. Kellan’s made it his mission to seek out life’s pleasures; Sara gains pleasure from lecturing him on his lifestyle. Kellan would never date someone like her. Ever. But when Kellan discovers Sara’s been stood-up by an online date, something fierce and protective awakens inside of him. Typically, Kellan would enjoy teasing the jilted Sara, but something in her face sends him over to her table with a plan. He encourages her to take a walk on the wild side, one weekend of sin, no holds barred. She accepts, but it quickly becomes apparent that one night isn’t enough. As the pull between them grows stronger, Kellan discovers it’s a very dangerous thing to say never.

goodreads-badge-add-38px

If you are in the mood for a friends to lovers book, this is the story for you. Sara and Kellan have known each other their entire lifes. As a matter of fact, they were neighbors growing up. So if it is one thing they know, it is each other. 

Sara has always felt something more than just friendship for Kellan. However, she also knows his reputation and has no desire to be another notch on his belt. She knows she needs to keep her distance, but she can't help give him a piece of her heart. 

Kellan has always considered Sara to be someone he can count on no matter what. He knows her inside and out; however, he can't help but feel like he is really seeing her for the first time the night  she is stood up on her date. 

When they finally give in to the attraction between them, they experience a weekend neither of them will ever forget. They both begin to realize that things will never be the same. So where do they go from there? Is there a future for them? Has Kellan finally found the one person to spend the rest of his life with? Will he let the mistake of his father overshadow his chance of forever? 

I loved this book right from the start. Kellan was so confident and cocky that I couldn't wait for Sara to knock him on his butt. She is the one person he could truly be his self around and he would not have to worry about any judgment in her eyes. Sara needed someone who she could let go of and be free with, someone who would help her to experience things she was missing out on. They were truly a perfect fit for each other and I enjoyed their journey to find their HEA. 

Great job Mari! I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve next!

AP new - synopsis.jpg


 USA TODAY bestselling author Alexa Riley's first full-length novel shows just what happens when a strong, possessive man finds the woman of his dreams.

I'll never forget the way she looked, so confident and sure of herself. I watched her from a distance. She wasn't ready for me yet. I didn't approach her and I didn't disturb her, but I never once took my eyes off her.  
Mallory Sullivan is ready to start her new life. After graduating at the top of her class, she's landed one of the most coveted internships in the United States. Hard work and determination have gotten her to this moment of living the life she only dreamed of while growing up in foster care.
From the start, I knew that she would be my greatest achievement, so the day I let her go, I set down a path for her. A path to me.  
She never expected Oz to be the greatest culmination of those dreams. But sometimes fate determines who you fall in love with. Who makes you lose control. Who owns your soul.
And then you realize it wasn't fate at all…
I've wanted to care for and protect her since the first moment I saw her. I've constructed everything in our lives so that at the perfect moment, I could have her, could give her the life she deserves.

Review and Excerpt of EIGHT SECOND RIDE by Anne Jolin

EIGHT SECOND RIDE by Anne Jolin
Series: Willow Bay Stables #2
Genres: Contemporary Romance
— SYNOPSIS —

Owen Daniels lives his life eight seconds at a time. The thrill of anticipation that comes with sitting on twelve hundred pounds of untamed power is unparalleled. The adrenaline rush that floods his system when the chute opens is one of life’s most unique and natural highs.

Ride eight seconds bareback on a bucking bronco—that’s his life.

When Owen’s stock horse, Remington’s Lady, is injured midway through the rodeo circuit, he trailers her back home to Willow Bay, Alberta, to remain in the care of the local vet, Ray Brookes.

Months later, with a truck bed full of buckles, Owen comes home to collect his Lady from the man he trusted to help her recover. Only Ray happens to be short for Rayne, and Rayne happens to be a woman.

And this woman wants nothing to do with a cowboy fresh off the circuit. As far as she’s concerned, he can take his buckles, boots, and spurs right back on out of her life.

Will Rayne keep them from holding on to their eight-second ride? Or will love buck out of the chute in time for a perfect score?


— PURCHASE —

-REVIEW-

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, Owen is one fine specimen! He has all the atrabutes you want in a man, but know there is no way in hell you will find it. He loves his family fiercely, lives for the rodeo, wears jeans that make you ovulate just by looking at him, will do anything for those he loves and did I mention hot as f*ck? Yeah, that about sums him up. I honestly could not get enough of him. He was such a well written character and I fell in love with him.

Rayne is a single mom who is just trying to raise her daughter right. She moves to town to take over her father's veterinary practice and make a life for them. The last thing she wants is a cowboy in her life to throw off her well made plans. Cowboys have given her more heartache then she wants to talk about and has no plans to go down that road again. However, each day Owen widdles away a little more of the ice around her heart and she is helpless to stop it. 

I loved these two together. They both made each other realize what they were missing in life and how good they could be together. The story sucked me in and I could not get enough. I absolutely loved each and every word. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book with the youngest sister, I know it will be just as great as the first two in this series. Great job Anne! I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next!

— HELL ON HEELS 



— EXCERPT 
Shoving the last (a bit too large) bite of bran muffin into my mouth, I push out the doors that led to the clinic’s driveway.

There was a dusty red pickup truck with a horse trailer hitched to the back blocking my view of the barn. Sidestepping around it, I opened the file in my hand to refresh my memory. We’d had Lady here for a little over four months, but I liked to cover all the bases with an owner before we discharged an animal from our care.

“Oh, here she is!” I heard Nora boom over the flat land.

Next was a deep and gravelly voice. “She?”

Lifting up my head, I choked on my muffin.

His butt.

That was literally all I could see. A ten-gallon, tan cowboy hat and a Wrangler-clad ass. Somewhere in between, I was pretty sure I’d skimmed over some pretty impressive muscles, but that butt…

My coughing (from my choking) must have encouraged him to turn.

I declared the front wasn’t so bad either.

He stood at what I had to guess was at least six foot four and stretched across the broad expanse of his chest was a faded black T-shirt. The man looked rough, not in a bad way, but in the kind of way that made you wish you could spend a lifetime curled up in his lap. A five o’clock shadow darkened his hard jaw, and eyes as green as the summer grass watched me as I stopped a few feet from him.

“I’ll be on my way,” Nora muttered and disappeared across the parking lot.

The silence left in her wake made me uncomfortable so, after swallowing, I decided to fill it.

“Ray Brookes.” I held out my hand to him, and he studied it.

Eventually, he slid a much larger, calloused hand into mine and squeezed. “Darlin’, I’ve met Ray Brookes, and you sure as hell ain’t him.”

“Oh.” I tugged at my hand a little as a result of the odd backhanded compliment, but it didn’t budge. “I’m sorry.”

“Nothin’ you need to be apologizin’ for.”

He was rough around the edges but charming in a way that cowboys so often were. They were a legend after all, weren’t they?




— ABOUT THE AUTHOR: ANNE JOLIN —
Hey y’all, 
I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns, and driving in trucks. 

I never expected to be an author. A massage therapist? Yes. Take over the family construction company? Yes. But an author? No. Writing was something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful to discover that love, and I’m truly grateful to say I’ve found my passion. 

Since I’ve always been a creative person, it feels amazing to harness all of that energy and use it to tell a story I love. I enjoy incorporating bits of my real life into the stories I write. What parts are true? Hah. I’ll never tell—what would be the fun in that? 

If I could leave y’all with one thing, it’s that life’s far too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions, hold on tight to the things that inspire you, and chase your dreams relentlessly. I can promise you without a doubt that you won’t regret it. I know I don’t. 

Mad love, 
Anne Jolin

If she is captured, his rivals will deliver a deadly ultimatum—his life in exchange for hers. The price for Carter’s freedom is Vladimir’s blood.

Vladimir holds ultimate power as godfather of the Ivanov Bratva…

He spent five years in a Siberian prison camp and has earned every tattoo inked into his skin. He is a powerful man who rules his crew with an iron fist.

But his enemies have discovered his only weakness—Carter. Vladimir knows if she stays in his world, he is handing her a death sentence, so he vows to get her home and never interfere in her life again. Giving up the woman he loves is the only way to protect her from the bad guys—including himself.

Vladimir’s rivals have a different plan for the ill-fated couple…
Some punishments are worse than death, and the head of the Ovechkin Bratva will go to any length to seek vengeance and inflict maximum suffering on Vladimir.

Carter may be Vladimir’s weakness, but she is also his only hope for survival. When the boss of the Ovechkin family threatens the man she loves, she must fight for Vladimir’s freedom before their rivals can deliver the fatal blow.

Love is blind—but it could also be deadly.
