Charlie Williams’ view on relationships is simple—one night, no strings, move on.

But when the opportunity to see a girl from his past comes up, Charlie finds himself breaking all his own rules. Ever since the night he’d turned her away, Charlie hasn’t been able to get Charlotte off his mind. A break from his pub for a vacation across the pond should be enough to cure him of his curiosity and get her out of his system. At least, he hopes…

Charlotte Mackay channels love through coffee.

Running her fandom-themed store and specialty coffee bar keeps her nerdy heart busy after one too many relationship disappointments.

Until the man she can’t manage to forget calls.

Charlie’s coming to The Hamptons for a two-week vacation. She’s going to be his host—nothing more. She’d fallen under the spell of his bedroom eyes and roguish charm once before, and it nearly wrecked her. Charlotte can’t risk the same mistake twice.

But love knows no boundaries when two hearts collide.


I generously received this ARC from IndieSagePR in exchange for an honest review…

Although this book is technically the third book in the Game of Hearts series, it can easily be read as a standalone, which is good because I didn’t know that when I signed up for a copy of this book. However, I am super happy that I didn’t know because I probably would have signed up and I would have missed out on an extraordinarily captivating read. While the previous two books may have dealt with characters from the first two in the series, I had not trouble getting into this book whatsoever. This story flowed so well and I could hardly set it down. I literally binge read this book in less than two hours due to the fact that the moment I opened it I needed to finish it.

I adored the undeniable chemistry between Charlotte and Charlie (how awesome are their names btw?). What begins as a ONE NIGHT STAND soon turns into something more when Charlotte tries to convince Charlie that it’s not always the only option. Love can be discovered around any corner and an unexpected love can be thrust upon you when you least expect it. This was a sweet and lovable read that will have you anticipating the end, but at the same time wishing it would never be over…

Lifestyle. Beautiful couple in bedLifestyle. Beautiful couple in bed


What would break me out of the monotony I found myself in? Some days, it felt like there was no difference between home life and pub life. Like a tether between the two, I walked. Only the faces changed sometimes. The selection of people I could align myself with, whether it was friends, or just some pretty face to help me scratch an itch. The latter, being of my own choosing, never once sparked a need for more.

It was a lonely life I led, but it was the only way I’d ever known. The scary part was that I knew I wasn’t getting any younger. The mirror was proof of that. Before I knew it, I’d turn out just like my uncle Dan. Bitter and resentful toward all his youthful misadventures. All the wasted time that floated in the in between of his life and he’d never once stopped to question his choices. His decisions. Yet, on the flip side of that, he loved me. Loved me enough to give me the one thing that mattered most to him. The pub. And I’d give it right back if it meant he lived. But he didn’t, and no matter how much I wanted to, I couldn’t go back in time and make it right. Make him proud. Show him that his belief in me mattered and I’d spent every day since he left me proving I was a better person. A changed man.

Would he be disappointed in my one and only flaw?

Sex was an escape for me. It allowed me to purge myself of the need to step back into the dark world I’d left behind and vowed never to go back to.

The shattering reality of it, though? I couldn’t help but question it all. Couldn’t help but wonder what could be different if I stepped out of what was comfortable and shook off the dregs of the cloying feeling of melancholy that clung to me night and day.

How could I find out what was wrong with me, when I had no idea where to start?

Pre-Order: Links Coming Soon!


10 cities in two weeks. 10 famous rock stars. On my knees. Against the wall. On my tits. I don’t care. As long as I get the evidence to prove it. Why? Because I caught my former prick of a boyfriend from Heavy Metal Enthusiasts doing a groupie doggie style backstage on the night we were supposed to be celebrating our 1 year anniversary.

He told me I was too uptight. Too vanilla. Too boring. So I got drunk with my bestie, Marsha West, the aspiring videographer. I ranted. I raved. I came up with a crazy idea. What I didn’t know was that my best friend recorded me. Marsha put the video up on YouTube. It went viral with 10 million hits. Now I’ve got fans and sponsors offering me big bucks.

Rock stars are volunteering to be my f*ck buddy.

Hollywood is calling.

I get to choose which rock stars I want.

The stakes are high.

This sh*t just got real. 

What could go wrong?

Release Blitz & Review – Sweet Spot by Stella Rhys

Sweet Spot Ebook Cover.jpg

Sweet Spot by Stella Rhys
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: March 30, 2017
Buy Now: Amazon


Our first meeting as neighbors was screwed from the start.
He was hot. I was naked. And we had no chance in hell at ever being platonic. 

I’ll be the first to admit that I live at extremes. After going ten years locked in what felt like a dysfunctional marriage, I’m now decidedly boy-free. In nearly three years I’ve had no boyfriends, no flings, no dates and no sex. For the sake of my dream career, the sacrifice has been easy.

At least it was.

Until he came along.

Lukas Hendricks. He’s rude, gorgeous, arrogant – a stone-carved wall of muscle and distraction. He’s everything I know to avoid but there’s no avoiding your next-door neighbor. Oh yeah. The man now lives three steps from me and to make matters worse, he crashed into my life while I was relaxed in the tub – mortifying to say the least and it went something like this: I was exposed. He looked. He laughed.

And then I locked myself out.

In short, Lukas Hendricks was trouble from the start. And me?

I was – for the first time in years – about to be screwed.


I generously received this ARC from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review…

Sweet Spot was my introduction into the beautifully captivating writing style of Stella Rhys and what an extraordinary introduction it was. So I finished this story very last minute (I know shame on me), but as soon as I started reading I couldn’t put it down. Immediately from page one I was hook, line, and sinker and by the end I was craving more and I didn’t want it to ever end!

Lia and Lukas have the kind of chemistry that is off the charts and I could literally feel their intense attraction radiating off the pages. When I heard what Lia’s character had went through in her past relationship I was rooting for Lukas from the very beginning and he managed to tug on every single one of my heartstrings. Not only do we see romance, but the author throws in a ton of comedy. Up until this past year I never really read ROMCOMs, but now that I’ve discovered them I never want to let them go.

Overall, I really adored this story and as much as I wish I had time to write a long review I am lost for words, so I will leave you with this… If you are looking for a little bit of comedy and a lot of romance, then go and pick up a copy of this Romantic Comedy!

Little did I know that she was going to save me all over again.

I generously received this ARC from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review…

I am so happy that I didn’t have tor wait to read this book, especially after that epic cliffhanger at the end of the first book! When I initially signed up for this ARC I had no clue that this book was part of a series, but luckily I received a copy of both books. Where do I begin? I think the most important part to note about this story is that it is not a standalone series, you need to read the first book in the Beautiful Game series before diving into this one. Trust me when I say if you don’t you will have a difficult understanding certain aspects of the story that were revealed in book 1.

Another thing about this amazing story that I must note is that the author (Karen Frances) know how to develop her characters in a way that they stay with you long after you finish the story. Honestly, there is so much that I want to say about this book and yet I’m lost for words because I don’t believe that they will do this book justice. I have say that I absolutely adored the chemistry that radiating off of the pages between Jess and Fletcher. Oh boy do these two have chemistry. Originally when I started reading this series I planned to read the first book one day and then the second book another day, but as soon as I reached the cliffhanger at the end I couldn’t wait and I immediately dived into the second one. I think that this series took me about four (may five) hours to finish because I literally couldn’t put it down. Nothing was left untouched and the book ended perfectly! I cannot wait to check out what else this author has to offer in the near future!
