Synopsis

Sean Willis knows the difference between right and wrong. Sure, the bass player of Three Ugly Guys has made his share of mistakes, but when push comes to shove, Sean always chooses the high road. Now, even when things are unraveling with the band, he’s the voice of reason.

Until Jess.

She’s the only thing he’s ever wanted and couldn’t have. Not only is she his new roommate, but her boyfriend is the newest addition to 3UG. She’s more than off limits, she’s a temptress with her unaltered beauty and gentle spirit.

Jessica Moore has never been the center of anyone’s world. In fact, she’s familiar with being forgotten. Not too tall, not too pretty, not too smart; she’s just Jess. No stranger to scraping by for survival, she finds shelter in Coy Wright, a musician with dreams bigger than life. But when Coy skyrockets to stardom, Jess is thrust into a world in which she doesn’t belong.

That is, until she discovers an unexpected friendship. Sean treats Jess as someone special, important, and worthy of love. The feelings and desires he stirs within are dangerous, because despite Sean’s kindness and affection, she’s forever loyal to Coy.

What happens when doing the wrong thing feels right?

Jess and Sean’s friendship is put to the test, along with alliances in the band. Is love enough to derail their best laid plans, or will selfishness throw everyone’s success off track?

Review

Oh my goodness after devouring Detour back in May I just knew that I needed to get my hands on Sean’s story right away because I absolutely loved his character in the first book in the Off Track Records series! Of course the wait was certainly well worth it and I couldn’t put the book down until I finished it because I found myself falling more and more in love with these characters.

Derailed by Kacey Shea will take readers on an emotional journey and will leave them on the edge of their seats in anticipation from start to finish. This story gives readers all the feels with that heart wrenching feeling in the pit of your stomach until the very end! My head is still reeling hours after devouring this beautifully captivating read and there are so many deep layers to this story that will warm a readers heart inside and out.

While I have so many thoughts and emotions running through my head about this book, I just don’t feel that I fully express them without giving away some essential aspects of the storyline. That is something I definitely wouldn’t want to do because this book needs to be experienced firsthand!

Seriously I am so honored to have been given the chance to read this story and I cannot help but recommend this 5+ star read! Kacey Shea you have outdone yourself this time and I am so excited to see what the next in the series has to hold!

AURORA

I was so excited for Derailed and this story did not disappoint.

Kacey Shea does an amazing job with those hot rockers and the women that love them 😉

Derailed  will take you on an emotional rollercoaster, one you won’t want to get off of.

My heart ached so many times for Jessica and I wanted to throttle her boyfriend more than once. I loved the friendship that blossomed with Sean and well, the rest you’re just going to have to read for yourself. This book is not one to be missed!

Review – On Thin Ice (Bedroom Games #2) by Piper Rayne

On Thin Ice by Piper Rayne
Series: Bedroom Games #2
Genres: Romance, Sports
Release Date: February 12, 2018
Buy Now: Amazon | B&N | Kobo | iBooks

Synopsis

The Winter Games have begun…

I’m the life of the party. A little loud and some buzz kills might say obnoxious, but if you’re around me I guarantee you’ll have a good time.

Unless your name is Demi Harrison.

If that’s the case, you’d act like I’m the devil incarnate and go out of your way to avoid me. Which makes zero sense because at the last Olympic Games I rocked her world.

Whatever though. I need to concentrate on winning gold anyway. I was at the top of the standings coming into the games, but since arriving in Korea I’ve lost my edge.

I was never one for superstitions, but I can’t deny that there’s only one difference between my previous medal winning games, and these ones—her.

I’ve pulled off amazing feats in the past, but getting Demi to agree to sleep with me throughout the games might require divine intervention.

Review

Ahhhh! Piper Rayne you ladies capture my heart every single time and your characters ALWAYS find their own special place in my heart. This story went above and beyond my wildest dreams and I was on the edge of my seat from start to finish.

After learning briefly about Dax and Demi’s past in the first book in the Bedroom Games I knew that this story was going to be one of those one sitter reads so I cleared a couple hours this morning to sit down and focus all my time on these two. Let me just say that I am so freaking glad that I did because there was no way in hell that I was putting this book down. I was hooked right from the beginning and my attention was held until the very end, which isn’t surprising because this dynamic duo knows how to capture their readers hearts!

On Thin Ice was AMAZING and I cannot wait for Break the Ice! Luckily I won’t have to wait much longer…come on February 26, 2018 hurry up and get here like NOW!

About Piper Rayne

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter.

We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon-holed into a specific type of story. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it!

All that, AND we thought it’d be a helluva lot more fun if we did this writing thing together!

What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes, quirky heroines that make us laugh, and lots of sexy times. Here’s hoping you do, too!

No Tomorrow by Carian Cole
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 8, 2018
Pre-Order: iBooks

Synopsis

The people we love are thieves.
They steal our hearts. They steal our breath.
They steal our sanity.
And we let them.
Over and over and over again.

*********************************************

They say you never forget your first time.
Mine was with a homeless musician who effed my brains out under a bridge.

He was my first love. And sixteen years later, I still can’t get him out of my head.

He broke all my rules.
He also broke my heart.

I watched him climb to stardom, cheering him on from afar.
But I was never a fan; just a girl in love.

Like a tornado, he spiraled, leaving a path of destruction in his wake.

But love conquers all, right? It has to. Because here I stand, ravaged and ruined, needing it to be true.

You can’t go back, but I want to. Back to the bridge. Back to when he sang only for me. Before he was famous. Before he shattered my heart.

I thought I knew everything about him.
But I could not have been more wrong.

He promised me every tomorrow. And here I am, waiting.
And hoping.
Again.

Synopsis

1.Hate-screw my high school nemesis.
2.Remember to hate him.
3.Prove my brother wrong.

It should be easy.
It isn’t.

As the owner of Pick-A-D*ck, New Orleans’ premier hook-up website, my job is simple. Connect two people for a no-strings, no-expectations hook-up. The plus for my clients is that I’m the one who gets to sift through the d*ck pics—except this time, they’re required.

My problem? My brother, co-owner of Pick-A-D*ck’s sister dating site, doesn’t believe it’s possible to hook up with someone three times and not fall in love.

I disagree. I know it’s possible.

And my disagreement is exactly how I end up reconnected with my high school nemesis, Elliott Sloane. The guy who asked me to junior prom and then stood me up. Who egged my car when I rejected him, and convinced my senior homecoming date to ghost me.

It should be easy to hate-screw him. If only he was still that person, instead of a hot-as-hell single dad, working as a builder to make ends’ meet, fighting for custody of his daughter.

Three hook-ups.
One outcome.
Right?

About Lindsey Iler

Lindsey Iler is the author of the Our Worlds series. She’s had her feet planted in the state of Michigan since she was born and she still lives there with her husband and three kids.

When she’s not writing (which should be all the time, so if she’s not you have permission to yell at her), she’s spending time with family and friends, listening to music, reading (obviously!), and hopefully just enjoying every moment in life. She has a twisted sense of humor, tends to speak honestly, and her mind tends to feel most comfortable in the gutter.

Lindsey writes mature young adult/new adult contemporary romance. She falls in love with every character that pops into her head and is notorious for writing long chapters in her notes on her iPhone (It is sort embarrassing how many started/unfinished projects are on that thing). She finds inspiration from music and the people around her.

Review – Forget Me Not by Willow Winters

Forget Me Not by Willow Winters
Genres: Dark Romance
Release Date: September 12, 2017
Buy Now: AmazonB&NKoboiBooks

Synopsis

I fell in love with a boy a long time ago.

I was only a small girl. Scared and frightened, I was taken from my home and held against my will. His father hurt me, but he protected me and kept me safe as best he could.

Until I left him.

I ran the first chance I got and even though I knew he wasn’t behind me, I didn’t stop. The branches lashed out at me, punishing me for leaving him in the hands of a monster.

I’ve never felt such guilt in my life.

Although I survived, the boy was never found. I prayed for him to be safe. I dreamed he’d be alright and come back to me. Even as a young girl I knew I loved him, but I betrayed him.

Twenty years later, all my wishes came true.

But the boy came back a man. With a grip strong enough to keep me close and a look in his eyes that warned me to never dare leave him again. I was his to keep after all.

Twenty years after leaving one hell, I entered another. Our tale was only just getting started.

It’s dark and twisted.

But that doesn’t make it any less of what it is.

A love story. Our love story.

Review

OMG! Have you ever experienced that incredible feeling of discovering a new (to you) author and instantly find yourself addictive to their beautifully captivating words. That is exactly what happened to me a few weeks ago when I picked up my very first Willow Winters read. All I can think is what the heck took me so long? For years I’ve been hearing nothing but phenomenal things about this author and yet it took me forever to pick one up and give it a shot. Within hours I was turning to the last page and wasn’t sure what to do with myself. Of course I knew the only solution was to dive right into another one of her stories….Forget Me Not.

This story had me hooked right from the very beginning and I was on the edge of my seat in anticipation until the very end. There were so many twists and turns…I was captured whole body and soul…I was bent and broken…and my heart was torn to shreds with an abundance of emotions. Gosh I had no clue that this book was going to be like this, but it was EVERYTHING and I don’t regret a moment of time I spent devouring this story. Willow Winters you better prepare yourself because you have a new stalker…I mean NUMBER ONE fan!

Synopsis

The final book in the Something in the Way series, a love saga.

Manning and I have what happily-ever-after is made of . . .
A home he built us on the unshakeable foundation we fought for.
A life of laughter carved out of heartache and betrayal.
A love story to stand the test of time.

But between a trust that can’t be broken, joy that can’t be bridled, and passion that would scorch the sun, the empty spaces are becoming more and more difficult to ignore . . .

Fears that keep Manning up at night as he slips from our bed.

Our complicated relationship with a man he respects and one I don’t know how to forgive.

And a sprawling, beautiful home with one small room I’m afraid I’ll never be able to fill.

Manning and I have what happily-ever-after is made of . . .
But I’ll beg the heavens for just one thing more.

Review

After finishing Move the Stars back in October I never expected to get more of Lake and Manning’s story so imagine my surprise when Jessica Hawkins announced that she was giving her readers what they wanted…MORE! I wasn’t sure what to expect with this story, but I feel as if I got everything I needed and everything I never expected with the final story in the Something in the Way saga. This is the kind of story that gives readers ALL THE FEELS and will leave their hearts reeling right until the very end (and long after).

Lake + Manning is a beautifully captivating story with a that gut-wrenching emotion in the pit of your stomach. My heart wept for these two because although they moved the stars, neither one of them expected their life to turn out the way it did. Love will conquer all, but that doesn’t mean the heartache is over for these two. This was an extraordinary story and I can’t believe that it is officially over, but I am so fortunate that Jessica Hawkins gave us more because we needed to see more of their happily ever after.
