Wicked Secret

(Wicked Horse Vegas, Book #8)

Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: May 26, 2020

 

 

 

Synopsis:

 

Those that truly know August Greenfi eld, will tell you that I live my life to the fullest. Work hard as part of the team at Jameson Force Security but play just as hard at The Wicked Horse Vegas. I have no regrets about my life. Well, maybe just one. Leighton Hale was my first love and the woman I wanted to spend my life with, but one day she was just gone. Vanished without a trace. Even my extensive contacts as part of the team at Jameson left me empty – handed in my search for answers. My single remorse is never being able to find out what happened to her, because no matter how difficult the truth may be, it can’t be as bad as never knowing at all. Ten years later, a knock on my front door brings me face – to – face with the woman I thought I’d never see again and nothing in my life could have prepared me for the secrets she holds.

Wicked Secret (Wicked Horse Vegas, #7)Wicked Secret by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is #8, in the Wicked Horse Vegas series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

August is happy being a hedonist. He enjoys women, and sex and is not ashamed of his hobbies. Then a surprise blast from the past blows him away with a visit.

Leighton is someone who knew August in his past. They were supposed to have a future that was ripped away. Can he and Jameson Force Security help when it is lives on the line?

This story had so much to it. It was nice to connect the series that I love to read. I was happy with the references to the other books. The characters felt disconnected to me somehow. I had a hard time placing the story with the people I was reading about. It is still a good read, but not the kind I am used to from this author.

Title: Trouble

Author: Gabrielle G

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

About Trouble:

 

 

There are three things I have to protect: My heart, my scars and my life. Even from my best friend.

 

Some secrets have the power to change lives.

Or ruin them.

What I didn’t expect was for my best friend to walk away when I needed him most.

I made the only decision I could.

And I have no regrets–even if Lars Trouble can’t handle that.

Now I just have to convince my broken heart it’s better off without him.

 

 

 

***

 

 

I don’t do secrets, I hate deceivers and I’m not in love with my best friend.

 

Or so I thought.

As the man in the shadows, the drummer of the Darling Devils, the person I rely on most is my best friend.

That is until I discover Naomi is a liar.

If walking away from her was hard, learning she isn’t mine to love feels impossible.

And just when I think it’s all finally coming back together, fate steps in and proves me wrong.

But when you love someone, you do the only thing you can. You fight for your love story to begin.

 

A friends-to-lovers romance to the beat of the Darling Devils – the legends of music.

 

This novel contains chapters with difficult scenes that might trigger some readers. Please reach out to me for specific details.

Trouble (Darling Devils, #2)Trouble by Gabrielle G.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to fully understand the series, I recommend reading the series in order.

Naomi and Lars have history. Serious chemistry of heat and sexy history. Only the choice for her was about friendship. Since she could have gotten serious about a man who uses her looks as a type. She instead, chose to be his friend, the best of friends.

Lars is all in with his best friend. Until the worst happens. Then they split apart, and that is it. Being in the limelight, having someone to care about who he really is was a real treat. Now, she looks at him with such shame and disgust. Can this be fixed?

I love the friends to lovers trope, I have been pretty vocal about that. I just really did not feel the connection with this story and its MC’s. I tried at separate times. I found the story solid, the pace nice and fast, and the chemistry just was not working for me. All around it is still worth the read. Lots of our favorites make an appearance, and I am still eager to read the next installment in the series. The book is still a good read.

Synopsis

 

Jake Michelson plays it safe. All he wants to do is keep a roof over his head and graduate from NYU in a few months. He can count on three things in life: his job at Dinkin’s Donuts, his best friend Marri, and school.
 
Archer Ferraro plays by his own rules. The one thing he can’t stand is when bad people get away with doing bad things. He’s dedicated his life to righting the wrongs the police can’t or won’t handle.
 
When Archer accidentally upsets Jake’s life, he vows to make it right and hires him.
Together, Jake and Archer must work on a new case involving stolen jewelry and a womanizer, deal with a lawyer brother and a jailbird father, and stay out of the cops’ way.
 
Should be easy…right?

Excerpt

 

“Hey!” Everyone stopped to gawk at the smallish, drunk man with his glasses askew. Jake struggled from my hold and staggered off his stool. “What the hell do you think you’re doing?” He took a few steps toward the asshole cowboy. “We’re having a good time. You can’t ruin our fun with your <em>stooopid</em> face.” Jake hauled back and punched him.
 
“Shit!” I lunged and grabbed Jake around the middle, pulling him away before the cowboy retaliated.
 
The cowboys surged forward, but a piercing whistle ripped through the air and everyone froze. Titus crooked a finger at one of his friends, a guy as big as himself, and pointed at Jake who was once again asleep in my arms.
 
The biker smiled, revealing a gold tooth. I returned it with an aborted one of my own. He slid his arm under Jake’s knees, then wiggled his other arm between us. I held his head as the guy lifted Jake like a child. I grabbed Marri’s hand before she could attack, and I hurried after the dude. He entered a door behind the bar and deposited Jake on a sofa.
 
“Thanks, man,” I said.
 
“No problem.” He slapped my shoulders and my knees almost buckled.
 
Breaking glass and shouts came from the bar, and I winced.
 
A chuckle rumbled in his chest like one their motorcycles kicking on. “Don’t worry. This happens at least once a month.”
 
“Seriously?”
 
“Titus doesn’t like homophobes, racists, or conservatives.” He grinned and headed out the door.
 
Marri and I exchanged glances.
 
“Are your friends okay?”
 
“They left. That’s what I was coming to tell you guys.” Marri peeked out at the bar and shut the door fast as glass shattered.
 
“Shit. Does it lock?”
 
She pushed the little button in the knob, and I laughed.

Karma's a Bit*hKarma’s a Bit*h by Este Holland
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Jake has stayed the course and will soon graduate. He is trying to stay on track, and is looking at the goal on the horizon. Then he meets someone who turns his world sideways and upside down.

Archer first comes into Jake’s place of business and begs him to sell something unsellable. There are real consequences to this action, for both of them. Then realizing they can help one another, they make a new plan that takes them one step closer to the rest of their lives.

This book is fast paced and literally can go whizzing by. I found I liked the characters lack of steady under their feet as it made for a fun read. Poor guys never know what hit them. From attraction, to change of jobs, to learning to navigate friendships this story has the reader on thier toes just wishing to be in on the action.

New Release – Wylde

 

Wylde

(Arizona Vengeance, Book #7)

Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: May 12, 2020

 

Synopsis:

 

There’s a reason they call me Wylde and it’s not just because it’s my last name.

 

I might be one of the newest players on the Arizona Vengeance team, but I’m no stranger to the celebrity that goes along with being a professional hockey player. Whether it’s a fan seeking an autograph or a puck bunny loo king for more, I’ve grown used to the attention. I not only thrive on it; I use it to my advantage. Let’s just say my bed is rarely empty.

 

When a quirky redhead at the local bookstore stops me dead in my tracks, I decide to pop in and turn on the trusty W ylde magic. As smart and strong – willed as she is beautiful, Clarke Webber isn’t swayed by my witty banter or charming good looks. And when she realizes who I am and the fame that comes along with it, she likes me even less. Thankfully, I’m always up for a challenge. The more I get to know about her, the more I know my playboy days are behind me.

 

If I’m going to capture Clarke’s heart, it’s time to be a lot less Wylde, and a lot more Aaron.

Wylde (Arizona Vengeance #7)Wylde by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is #7 in the Arizona Vengeance series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to fully appreciate this incredibly hot series, I recommend reading in order.

Aaron runs around his neighborhood until he sees the most striking woman he has ever seen. What is a hot hockey player to do when he sees a good looking woman? He stops to talk to her. Then as he gets to know her, he realizes he wants more.

Clarke cannot believe she has met a man who excites her in more ways than one. She is shocked to find that behind the excellent banter is a well read man. Its the fame that surrounds him that makes it a hard decision.

The banter just sucked me in right from the get go. This book has it all and I loved it. I was excited to read about this great series! Some of our favorites form previous stories make an appearance in this one. The characters were a joy to read and I was eagerly turning the pages. This read has a fast pace, lots of action, and some surprises for the reader.

Contemporary Romance
Stand Alone
Designed by Letitia Hasser of RBA Designs

Purchase Here–> smarturl.it/jys4js

Take a card.
Owe him a favor.
I promise, you’ll regret it.
 
IOU, a sexy, new adult standalone from Kristy Marie is out now! 
 
 
Blurb:
 
It’s official.
 
I, Ainsley James, am crazy.
 
Desperate and crazy.
 
It’s the only explanation as to why I’m nauseous, standing outside Maverick Lexington’s door.
 
I mean, it’s possible the stories about his deck of playing cards—with the words IOU scrawled across the back—are just rumors of the ruthless quid pro quo deals he barters.
But the flutters in my stomach know better.
 
Maverick is as cold as they come.
 
But, I need one of those cards.
 
I NEED to owe Maverick Lexington a favor…
 
Whatever the terms, I’m willing to pay.
 
Because, at this point, I have nothing left to lose.
 
 
EXCERPT:
 

I step back just as the door swings open with force, and a rock hard body fills up the empty space. My gaze starts at the top, noting the firm grip he has on the molding. The muscles strain against his taut skin, flexing as he leans forward, cocking his head to the side. His face—

Oh shit.

This is bad—really, really bad.

“Oh no.”

His scowl curves up into a lazy grin.

“Waitress,” he purrs. His voice has this melody of a luring song— one meant to pull you in and destroy your heart in a matter of seconds.

It doesn’t affect me, though.

“Dick at table forty-three, the princess who needed his steak warmed.”

Slap me with a stupid sticker because I have lost my damn mind. Why in the hell did I just say that? Yes, he was the rude-ass who insisted I warm up his food, and yes, he’s the one I dumped said food on, but that was yesterday, and I have moved on. Hopefully, so has he.

“Dick, huh?” He drops one of his massive arms and rubs a spot just above—ah damn, his nipple is pierced. Not to mention the whole right side of his ribs are covered in a massive tribal tattoo. Even on his left, a smaller tattoo wraps from his back and ends on his stomach, teasing me to gaze longingly at the ridiculous set of six-pack abs between them.

Why is life not fair?

I drag in a deep breath and try to let any animosity of yesterday go. “Can we start over?”

That lazy grin of his falls in an instant. “No.”

No. Okay. Well, that’s not good.

Sighing, I watch as his body goes rigid, and his arm goes back to the top of the door frame, blocking any view behind him. His icy blue eyes stare back at me unyielding and hard, not the same guy that grinned when he first saw me. “I’m sorry about last night.” Hopefully, my sincerity will soften him.

“What can I do for you?”

Okay, so we’re going with a hard no on being softened.

With no hint of emotion, other than the apparent tone of boredom, one can surmise that Maverick will not be bought with sweetness and apologies. I’m going with plan B, which I’m making up as I go.

“Are you Maverick?” I could have said that a little stronger and without the slight tremor.

He drops his hands and reaches into his back pocket, producing a handful of playing cards. Oh no. I’m not prepared for it to get real this fast. What if those two idiots in class were right? What if I’m never the same after this?

“How much is it worth to you?” He drawls, producing a marker.

 
 
 

IOUIOU by Kristy Marie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ainsley has had a tramatic experience. With it she meets the local Fire Department Captain, and the local College Mafia. In her grief she is learning people can surprise you.

Maverick is used to having people fear him. One woman is ripping all of his careful and staged world apart. All because he cannot resist helping her.

This book was the true meaning of a slow burn. While I was not sure whether I liked the premise, I kept reading since the banter was witty and sharp. I fell in love with the characters before they even met. Now this author is one of my fave’s and being added to my 1-click list.

About the Author:
 

A self-proclaimed reader enthusiast, Kristy started her writing journey back in 2009, reading and writing when her daughter was napping. Establishing her place in Corporate America (because something had to pay the bills), writing became her dirty, late-night secret.

After eight long years, she released her debut novel, Commander in Briefs. It was a long road, but she can honestly say, the road less traveled had the most beautiful sights.
The only thing Kristy Marie loves as much as reading and writing is sports! Especially those that require muscles and a nice ass. Her favorite is, and always will be, baseball. She’s such a fan, that she even married her small town’s high school’s centerfielder where they still live with their three badass kids.

About RAFE:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett comes a new story in her Arizona Vengeance series…

I was living my dream until one phone call changed everything.

As the second line center for the Arizona Vengeance, my mind has been on one thing—helping my team bring home a championship. But that all changed when I found out my dad had cancer and only months to live. In that moment, nothing mattered more than getting home to North Carolina to be by his side. That meant asking for the unthinkable—a trade to the Carolina Cold Fury.

Now I’m home and when I’m not on the ice with my new team, I’m helping care for my dad. And in the midst of my grief, I find comfort from the one person I never expected.

Calliope Ramirez stole my heart at a very young age. The beautiful, smart, headstrong girl next door, she was my first… everything. She has never forgiven me for leaving her, believing that I chose hockey over a future together. What she doesn’t understand is that every decision I made was for her, and I’ve never given up hope that one day we’d be together again.

Watching my dad slip away is a harsh reminder of how short life can be, and having Calliope by my side makes me realize I was a damn fool before. That changes starting right now. Calliope Ramirez is mine and I’m not going to waste the second chance that I’ve been given.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Rafe (Arizona Vengeance, #6.5)Rafe by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #6.5 in the Arizona Vengeance series. This book should be read in conjunction with the authors Cold Fury series to fully enjoy. It is not required, obviously, but will make the understanding easier. It will also stop any spoilers that could occur.

Rafe comes home to Raleigh under the most dire of circumstances. His father is dying and there is nothing he can do about it except be there. He chooses to move himself to be with family. While there he meets back up with the love of his life, Calliope.

Calliope has not been waiting for Rafe. He hurt her so badly the last time they were together that she believes there is no going back. While watching his family slowly fall apart while holding it all together simultaneously, she realizes she did miss him.

Not as long a story as we may be used to. However, this book packs a mighty punch. Both emotionally, and characteristically. These are solid MC’s with a clear history who love one another. I enjoyed reading this. Even with the dark story theme, it was still one of the best this author has to offer. She shines when the subjects are those that seem difficult.

***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review made up solely of my opinion.

Behind the Count (Cessna U Wildcats #2)Behind the Count by Kimberly Readnour
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2 in the Cessna U Wildcats series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to understand the series, I recommend reading this great series in order.

Shannon is trying to live her best life. She has overcome weakness, health issues, and has learned to stand on her feet. Now she is trying to survive college with her overprotective brother hovering nearby.

Noah has been in love with Shannon for a while now. She seems attracted to him as well. If only he wasn’t best friends with her brother. That is a bond he cannot risk.

This was such an emotional roller coster ride. I was glad I was on it, however. I had been excited to read this story and it did not disappoint. This couple has eyes for each other and truly excels when they are together. If only they could learn to jump in. I loved that is was fast paced, had lots of heat, and was sincerely a longtime coming.

Blog Tour w/Review – Lessons In Lemonade

 
 
Title: Lessons in Lemonade
Series: Starving for Southern Series
Author: Kathryn Andrews
Genre: Contemporary/Sports Romance
Release Date: April 28, 2020
 
 
 
Meg Dukette
When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.
 
I believe in living my best life, and if surviving cancer taught me anything, it’s exactly that. I wake every day in the most beautiful city in the South, I’m a chef at my own restaurant, and everything is just the way I want it: easy, calm, and in perfect harmony—that is, until my best friend shows up with his wounded heart, smoldering gaze, and adorable dimples. Now, things are changing—we are changing—but with the promises I’ve made to myself, I don’t want them to. After everything I’ve been through, breaking them now seems unthinkable, but the alternative might be a lesson my heart’s not prepared to learn.
 
Jack Willett
Just when you think life is the best it’s ever been, fate has a way of intercepting. 
 
I’ve spent ten years playing in the NFL, and with one wrong hit, my world comes crashing down. Now, I’m at the crossroads of what might become my past and a very different future. What I need is time and my best friend. Her gorgeous smiles, sexy legs, and optimistic outlook on life make the world brighter, better, and I’ve quickly found myself craving her more and more. She says we’re just friends, says that’s all we’ll ever be, but actions speak louder than words. It’s time to change the game, and I’m ready to pass the ball. I just hope she’ll be on the other end to catch it.
 
He’s her best friend. 
She’s quickly turned into something more. 
 
Will making a play for her heart be more bitter than sweet? Or will it add just the right amount of zest to make the most delicious ending of all . . .

Jack has been in the NFL the last 10 years. He has had an incredible team and made good friends. When the worst happens, he turns to whom he needs the most. His best friend, Meg.

Meg has never wanted forever. She makes it clear to all who know her that its just easier to be the person living her best life. She has great talent, good friends, and is doing what she can to just be healthy and live everyday.

This was such a great and heartwarming story. Right from the first page I felt totally sucked into the story and could not put it down! I loved these characters already from the series, and this was an installment that felt like icing on the cake. (Or pie.) Being able to read about their journey was totally a gift.

SYNOPSIS

Dating my brother’s best friend? Yeah, that’s forbidden…

Noah Geren.
Cessna University’s starting catcher.
Sensible.
My life-long crush.
And totally off-limits.

I only want a few things in life.
Graduate with a fashion degree.
To be taken seriously.
And Noah Geren.

After my first year of college, I let the idea of him go.
And it almost worked

Until that late summer night.

Shannon Smith.
My best friend’s sister.
The secret star of my late-night fantasies.
Hotter than sin.
Unattainable

There’s a code among best friends and teammates—no dating their sisters.
Too bad I didn’t listen.

One weak moment changed everything.
And nothing at all.

I’m not good for her.

They call me the sensible one,
But the more Shannon and I are forced to be together,
Staying away makes less sense,
And the reasons become hard to remember.
But I need to stay strong.
For reasons she’ll never understand.

Behind the Count (Cessna U Wildcats #2)Behind the Count by Kimberly Readnour
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2 in the Cessna U Wildcats series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to understand the series, I recommend reading this great series in order.

Shannon is trying to live her best life. She has overcome weakness, health issues, and has learned to stand on her feet. Now she is trying to survive college with her overprotective brother hovering nearby.

Noah has been in love with Shannon for a while now. She seems attracted to him as well. If only he wasn’t best friends with her brother. That is a bond he cannot risk.

This was such an emotional roller coster ride. I was glad I was on it, however. I had been excited to read this story and it did not disappoint. This couple has eyes for each other and truly excels when they are together. If only they could learn to jump in. I loved that is was fast paced, had lots of heat, and was sincerely a longtime coming.

Blocked (Scoring #2)Blocked by Jami Davenport
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is book #2 in the Scoring series. This book can be read as a stand alone novel. For reader enjoyment, or to avoid spoilers, i recommend reading this series in order.

Axel gets called up to the Sockeyes, Nothing could prepare him for what happend next. The only good thing that goes along with it, is how Geneva. Too bad she’s off limits.

Geneva is wildly attracted to Axel from the first moment their eyes met. She can not act on this as it would hurt her brother. The same brother who is currently her lifeline.

This title starts off with fireworks. More than meets the eye, these characters have a hold on one another and cannot express their feelings. The story is fast paced and has a lot of tension between the MC’s. Get ready for a wild ride.
