💗 

She was everything he never knew he needed.

He was everything she avoided.

💗 


It's not the first time I've been called a stalker.

I can’t blame Andrew Christiansen for thinking that since we keep crossing paths, especially when I pop up in the most unexpected of places—his office.

We’re opposites in every way. Not the kind that attract.

I’ve been called a ray of sunshine. He’s been called a grumpy workaholic that needs an attitude adjustment. By me.

Somehow, we become friends, the teasing, flirting, and kissing kind. But this thing blooming between us threatens to turn this relationship from friends-to-lovers into a full-blown office romance.

That's the least of my worries because one or two, little, okay big, secrets I've been keeping may turn him from the one I want into the one I can't have.

Excerpt

I hear a familiar bark and turn back. The woman from the park rushes toward the nearest shop as if I didn’t just bust her for following me. “What are you doing?” I ask. “Are you stalking me?” I might be jumping ahead of myself, but better to settle it now. A lot of weird stuff was happening at the park. Is she to blame?

Despite Rascal’s joy to see me, obstinance stiffens her shoulders, and she scoffs. “You wish.” Her hand flies out. “It just so happens that I’m walking in the same direction. So what?”

“Defensive,” I reply, analyzing her body language. Crossed arms. Straight line across her lips. Half-mast eyelids as she glares at me.

“I’m not defensive. I’m offended. You just called me a stalker.”

“My bad.”

“You’re bad, all right.” She angles her chin up, and adds, “You can go about your day now.”

I’m tempted to chuckle, but I’m thinking it’s wise to restrain myself. “I will. Good day.”

“Good day, sir,” she says to my back as I walk away.

I stop again, but this time, I don’t look back. Forcing myself to walk forward, I continue through the upscale neighborhood to the next block. I busy my attention on the architecture until I hear Rascal bark again.

I knew I shouldn’t have talked to a stranger. She may be hot, but she could also be deranged, using her dog as a ploy to trick her next victim to her lair. What am I even talking about?

When I turn back this time, she sidles quickly up to a coffee shop window, pretending to know the people sitting on the other side.

By how they turn their backs to her, they don’t reciprocate. “Nice try,” I tease.

Glancing at me, she huffs. “I’m walking in the same direction. It’s no big deal, for God’s sake.” She punctuates the words with an epic eye roll as if I’m putting her out. Huffing, she grabs Rascal, clutching him to her side.

“His feet have—”

“Shit.”

“Exactly.”

Anger fills her chest, and she shakes her head, exhaling it loudly with a foot stomp. “Ugh! I’ll go this way.”

As. If. I’m the nuisance.

Me?

Why am I even sticking around to have this conversation? Why am I bothering? Going in different directions—that’s us. She crosses the street, and I turn the corner, both of us heading back to our own lives and hopefully never seeing each other again.

I continue toward the building up ahead alone. I’m good. I’m fine. Alone is how I thrive. I’ll be here a year or two. That’s nothing. I have plenty of work to keep me busy.

Work.

I’m here for work. That’s it. I have a plan in place, and nothing and no one will keep me from achieving my goals.

RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - Lucky (The O'Sullivan Brothers #1) by Rie Warren


Title: Lucky
Series: The O'Sullivan Brothers #1
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: Mafia Romance/Irish/Mafia/Dark Romance
Release Date: May 3, 2021


He’s concerned with one thing only: ruling his mafia empire. She’s sworn off men—especially bad ones—for life. Despite their instant hostility, these two are on a hot collision course, and the collateral damage could be catastrophic.

LUCKY
I know all about being down on my luck but, right now, I’m at the top of the mafia food chain, and I don’t intend to let anything, or any woman, get in my way.

Then this broad appears in my casino. Prudence Knight is a straight-up hustler, a card shark who wins hand over fist, and I refuse to be impressed.

With her smartass attitude combined with the angelic looks, she’s begging to be controlled by a mafia man like me.

I don’t plan on taking it easy on Prue. Sure, she’s been through an ordeal, but now she owes me. I’m gonna find a reason to keep her for as long as she serves my purposes. Because, after years of being under my dad’s despicable rule, the only risks I take are the ones I know will benefit me in the end.

PRUDENCE
I’ve been known to be hardheaded and I’m definitely all about my independence. I bust my butt to earn a living and I have no desire to be any man’s pawn. Not even Lucky O’Sullivan’s.

Oh yeah. I’ve heard of him. Who hasn’t? The rumors, the gossip, the mafia myths. He’s said to be an unrepentant killer, and that might be the least of my worries. I hate him at first sight, and the feeling seems to be mutual until he makes me an offer I really should refuse.

Now I owe him, which makes this arrogant mob boss think he owns me. I’m getting in too deep, but at what cost?

Lucky is book 1 in the O’Sullivan Brothers Irish mafia series. No cliffhangers. No cheating. Includes sizzling hot scenes. Can be read as a standalone.


It's been a hot minute since I read a Rie Warren book and I forgot how fantastic she can weave a story! I loved the push and pull between Prudence and Lucky, because man did she make him work, and work hard, to win her heart. The fact that Lucky isn't used to someone not following his orders and having to put forth real effort had me hook, line, and sinker. And despite her protestations, Prudence felt the same way, even if she didn't want to. The chemistry between these two is absolutely smexiness and fire and all things hot and seeing a man like Lucky fall in love was pure awesomesauce!









Prue doesn’t want to want me?

Tough fucking shit.

Now I had her where I wanted her. Stretched out half on top of my Jeep with her face down. And she wasn’t escaping.

Something deviant compelled me to barge right against her.

Having her suddenly at my mercy again made my cock stiffen so fast blood rushed right to my groin. I jammed my pelvis against her ass so she could feel how she affected me, and she struggled.

I didn’t care.

I dragged my hands from her hips to her stomach and pulled her torso up. I held her tightly against my chest, my palms climbing over her top to hold her tits. I ran my fingers across her nipples that peaked up at my barest touch.

Still the obstinate woman wriggled in frustration.

I let out a husky chuckle then shoved her hair aside. Leaning in, I nipped and licked her neck until she stopped resisting.

Her hot whimper was music to my ears because I knew it wasn’t fear. It was fiery desire she kept trying to contain.

And I was about to break it all free so I could wallow in her untamed need.

Tugging her around, I dug a hand into her hair and claimed her mouth. The inferno combusted. Our tongues circled and twined, my hand controlling just how hard and how long the slippery kiss lasted.

When a groan tumbled from me, I snatched her head back.

“Goddamn it, Prue.” Ragged breaths struck through my chest. “Tell me.”

“What?” She sucked her bottom lip between her teeth.

“You know what I want to hear come out of that pretty mouth of yours.” My tone was clipped and crisp.

“Fine.” With a haughty toss of her magnificent mane and pure fire lighting those crystal green eyes, she admitted, “I want you, you arrogant ass—”

I crashed my mouth over hers again.

RELEASE BLITZ - Promise to Love You (Wild to Love #5) by J. Saman



Promise to Love You by J. Saman is now live!

Henry Gauthier: Bassist. Gorgeous. My brother’s best friend. And my first love.

He's also the man I grew to hate him after a one-night stand went horribly wrong. I've spent the last three years successfully dodging him like a bullet.
Now, fresh out of a bad relationship and living in a new city, I finally feel like I’m starting to get myself together. And when an opportunity to produce Wild Minds’ newest album presents itself, I can’t help but jump at the chance of a lifetime.
Even if it comes with a caveat.
Three weeks in Hawaii, an impossible to meet deadline, and Henry Gauthier.

***

Eden Dawson: Spitfire. Stunning. My best friend’s sister. And the bane of my existence.

I’ll be the first to admit three years ago I messed up. I shouldn’t have touched her.
Sort of like now. Because my best friend, my bandmate, made me promise that when it comes to his baby sister, I keep my hands to myself.
Only a woman like her is impossible to resist. And before I know it, despite my best efforts, we’re doing all manner of dirty things to each other.
We vow this is only a temporary fling. Promising that no matter what, love is off the table.
Now, I have to make sure two things don’t happen. One, I don’t break my promise to her. Two, her brother doesn’t find out I already broke the one I made to him.

RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - Tempted With You (Matchbox #5) by E.H. Lyon


Title: Tempted With You 
Series: The Matchbox Series #5 
Author: E.H. Lyon 
Genre: Sports/Age-Gap Romance 
Release Date: April 29, 2021 



This former hockey player has never been so tempted…

Nate Kade is many things—former sports star, owner of the successful bar Matchbox—and there’s no shortage of women willing to warm his bed for the night either. Everyone around Nate is settling down, but that just isn’t his style. No, he prefers against-the-door activities with a woman he’s just met. But he should probably pay attention to details. Because that one-night-stand beauty?

Turns out she’s his business partner and friend’s newfound sister—oops.

Melanie is ten years younger, just discovered she has an overprotective brother, and is new to town. Nate makes it clear that their one night will not be getting a repeat, but she isn’t entirely on board with his policy. Not only is Melanie his new next-door neighbor, but she seems to be turning up everywhere—including the ice rink where she also skates. Nate is finding it hard to resist a second round. He’s just beginning to realize that he may finally be tempted to have it all with someone.

Tempted with You is the fifth and final sweet and sexy standalone novel from the “Matchbox” series, where you can revisit your favorite characters throughout.


I'm officially sad that this is the last book of the series, but what a finale! I loved the chemistry between Nate and Melanie, even though he has zero clue as to her identity until a few weeks after having a scorching one night stand. Try as he might to keep his distance, he discovers that's not so easy when she's literally everywhere he goes, especially since they end up being next door neighbors. I liked that even though Melanie is on the younger side, she's got a maturity to her that's not often seen, and she knows what she wants, and in this case it's Nate.
