An irresistibly steamy college sports romance.
I’m Heath Taylor. Laid back. Easy going. Fastest guy on two skates and chill to a fault. Until Kara.
Three nights together and I’m done for. Her laugh, her smile, the way my hand curves around her waist. She’s the one. Not a doubt in my mind…until I walk into my last class of the semester.
Kara, the woman of my dreams, is my new instructor. My hockey season and her career prospects are on the line. One false move–if anyone finds out–we’re both sunk.
On the ice I’m a beast that can’t be stopped, but thoughts of her are throwing me off my game. My fingers itch to feel her in my arms again. But risking everything could ruin what we’ve worked so hard for.
Sometimes life has a way of changing the best laid plans. And sometimes you can’t stay away no matter the promises you make.
Life doesn’t play fair, but neither do I…

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love Maya and her stories. I have yet to find one that has not touched me in some way. Shameless King is an interesting read. This one is a slower read for me. This story starts in high school and then heads to the end of college.

Declan and Mak are not friends in any sense of the word in high school. But they want each other, they just can’t have each other. There is just too much keeping them apart. Social pressure, their own issues, and friends.

So we jump three years to the last year of college. Mak is back in town and is finishing school and runs into Declan. When they are made to work together it takes everything she has not to freak out. Declan is not someone that she thinks is trustworthy when it comes to school work.

Declan needs to ace this class or he will be kicked off the hockey team. And he will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen. But when it comes to working with Mak he doesn’t know if he can do it. She is to stress, doesn’t like to have fun and takes everything too seriously.

But sparks start flying when these two finally start showing their feelings. But will they both let their past and future get in the way of their feelings for each other?

So I want to say that I enjoyed this story, I really did. But it gave me different feelings. I liked both characters but at the same time, I wanted to slap them. But I guess it is their age. I am hoping that Maya gives us more of these characters and that Mak and Declan are there also.

At forty, Lan Davis is looking for his damned picket fence
and 2.5 kids. What he doesn’t expect is instead of a wife in the picture, his mind keeps conjuring up images of two men. One, his partner in the force, who is as straight as they came, the other an ex, who he’d hurt but never forgot.
After an incident leaves Lan injured, the two men rally around him… only maybe they shouldn’t have. It seems a medicated Lan is a truthful one.
Parker Wilding is pissed at the world. His anger builds when
his partner refuses medical care after an attack. Instead, Lan entrusts his neighbour to take care of him—a guy Parker doesn’t trust. While he’s aware they share a history, 
when the past is revealed, the truth shocks the hell out of him.
Being emotionally crushed ten years ago, Easton Ravel hoped
he would never have to see the man who broke him again. Hope is a fickle b*itch. And now he’s not sure how to handle being face-to-face with the man he once loved. Add in the mix the annoying, testy Parker, and Easton finds his limits are pushed.
Just not in the way he thought they would be.
What happens next sure does come out of the blue.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is my first Vanessa Vale so I have nothing to go by when it comes to her other stories. But I have to say I did enjoy this story. It has a nice build to it. There is a mystery to it. And a hot fireman too. I love the family and Jane works at a wonderful store. HAHA, that caught me at first.

Jane is not someone that has had a lot of men in her life, period. She is a mother of two wonderful little boys and is doing the single mother thing. She has a great support system and enjoys her life. But when Ty shows up at the store she works at to do a fire safety lookup. The sparks fly. But Ty is not looking for anything and Jane is not someone you just have sex with. She is a complication.

But when someone starts coming around her house, and then things are blown up and a murder happens all around Jane, Ty has no chose but to hang around.

I have enjoyed this story and am excited to see where the rest go.

BLURB

Jane West’s life is perfectly average.

Perfectly boring.

Until Ty Strickland—Grade-A, smoking hot firefighter—moves in down the street. Then things get a little exciting, and not in the good, panty-melting sort of way. Not only does someone want her dead (seriously), she has to wrangle her out-of-control desires where the new neighbor is concerned, and convince her boss at the small town’s only adult toy store—who meddles in Jane’s love life—to leave the new hose-wielding hottie off her matchmaking radar.

But it’s not all chaos and pancakes. There’s Ty. And his smoking hot body. Smoking hot kisses. He’s burning the walls around her heart to nothing but ash. And she just might be falling in love…if she can stay alive long enough.

This is the first book in Vanessa Vale’s new Small Town Romance series, where the men in Montana aren’t just hot, they set things on fire.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I LOVED this story. I am not big into second chance stories, but this one really isn’t one. Yes, Veronica and Jack have a past but not in a real romantic way. They were high school friends that both wanted more but never had it because of reasons beyond their control.

But when forces bring them together again 10 years later they have to face what happened back then and a little mystery that is surrounding Veronica. Will Jack be able to help her or make it worse? Will Veronica and Jack be able to get over their past and make a future together? Or will they forever be enemies?

BLURB

Veronica Miller is a plumber on a mission—buy out her dad and the family business is finally hers. One big, handsome problem stands in her way. And it’s not a clogged toilet.

Jack Reid is the boy she crushed on in high school. Ten years ago, he broke her heart and skipped town. But now he’s back, and he’s definitely no longer a boy. He’s all man—and he’d really like for Veronica to check out his pipe.

Forced to being roommates, Jack and Veronica have to work through a decade of baggage, disappointment, wanting and unrequited lust.

Even though Veronica’s heart hasn’t yet forgiven Jack, they’ll need more than a pillow berm down the middle of the bed to keep them apart.

In Montana Ice, the second book in the Small Town Romance series, it might be below zero, but Jack and Veronica heat things up.

Emma Hardy has wondered why Sam Carter rocked her world (and her libido) with an incredible kiss then calmly walked away, quit his job, and disappeared for two months. Not exactly the hot kiss follow-up she’d been hoping for.

But Sam was busy making plans.

Plans that include the two of them and picking up where they left off.

This time, nothing will stop them.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is a sweet and sassy story. It is short but the author is very upfront with it. You get a cute little Christmas story in the middle of summer with a white elephant party in it.

Enjoyed Sam and Emma’s story. 🙂

Series: The Fraternity Brothers by Emerson Rose Includes: Hot and Dangerous 📕Reviewed📕

Amazon

 

 

He needs a roommate, she needs a place to live.

Correction.

She needs a place to hide …

When charming firefighter Hunter meets a beautiful woman at the DMV, he wastes no time making her acquaintance. When she mentions she’s new in town and looking for a fresh start, he does not hesitate in offering to rent the extra bedroom in his house. After all, he’s never been able to resist a damsel-in-distress and helping those in need is what he does best.

What begins as an innocent, well intentioned arrangement, blossoms into a passionate entanglement neither one of them saw coming.

It all feels right. His tight-knit group of friends think the world of her. And he can’t imagine going the rest of his life without Edie by his side.

But when her past comes to call and their love is on the line, Hunter’s save-the-world complex faces the ultimate test. Is love enough to save them both?


**Hot and Dangerous Book One in The Fraternity Brothers Series, is the first of seven stories. The series is about a group of fraternity brothers who continue to be best friends long after graduation, and the women they fall in love with. Each book is a full length stand-alone romance with a happily ever after and no cliffhanger**

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have to say this book surprised me. I was a little apprehensive about this book, but I wanted to give it a try and I am so happy I did.

I loved this group of friends and Hunter. He is looking for a roommate since he has been cut off from his family because he is following his dreams. He is destined to become a firefighter and will do anything to do it. So when he meets Edie at the DMV he finds himself offering his home to her as a roommate.

Edie is hiding, and when she finds herself talking to Hunter she takes his offer and help. She is not looking for anything romantic, in fact, she wants NOTHING to do with romance. She wants a new life and maybe some friends.

Hunter finds he really enjoys Edie and her company. His friends like and respect her and it shows. But when her past comes back to hunt her will everyone stick by her? Or will they turn their back on her?

I went down to a 4 star due to how quick the ending ended. It was like bam. However, I did enjoy the story and will read the others.

Hunter

“Hunter, you’re fired.”
I look up from my bunk that I’ve just made with military precision after my last twenty-four-hour shift for the week. “Uh, sir?”
Chief Sullivan stands tall and irritated on the threshold of the room with his hands behind his back. “You have failed to show proof of a Class A license, so I have to fire you. I’ve been telling you for weeks to get this done by today. Time’s up.”
Shit. I was planning on taking care of that three days ago, but I was busy hiding the fact that I’m going to the academy to become a full-time firefighter from my family. “I was going to take care of that today, sir.”
His brows shoot up, and his expression is doubtful. “You have until five o’clock tonight. Have fun at the DMV on a Saturday, son. I don’t envy you.”
I don’t envy me either. “Thank you, sir. I’ll make sure you have it before five.”
“You do that, or you really will be fired.”
I’m a volunteer firefighter. Technically, he can’t fire me, but hopefully, that will soon change—being a full-time firefighter, not being fired.
He turns to leave and pauses on his way out. “Everything all right with your family?” he asks.
No, everything is not all right with my family. They’re pissed they spent thousands of dollars sending me to Westview University for four years only to watch me throw it all away to play hero, as they say. Chief knows my family is less than thrilled about my career choice, and he’s always been supportive.
“They still feel the same way. Nothing’s going to make them budge, though. I’m not going to worry about it.”
He grunts in agreement and leaves me alone. There’s not much else to say.
I hadn’t planned on spending the day at the DMV. I was going to take a run on the beach, work out, and place an ad for a roommate. Dad refuses to help with the rent now that I’m not going on to law school as planned.
As he planned, not me. I never wanted to go to college in the first place. I’ve wanted to be a firefighter since I was ten years old when I rescued a kitten from a burning garage five houses down from ours on Grand Avenue.
I saw smoke coming from the Grady’s garage and heard Cleo’s meows. Like an idiot, I went inside and crawled around on my hands and knees to find her. Mrs. Grady was a nice lady, and I knew how much she loved that cat. I couldn’t let it die.
When I emerged from the garage, Cleo under my arm coughing and sputtering, gasping for air, I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Even after spending the night in the hospital for smoke inhalation, I wouldn’t shut up about being a firefighter.
My dad finally put his foot down a year later and told me under no circumstances was a Forrest man going to work a blue-collar job. I didn’t know what that meant other than I wasn’t allowed to talk about being a fireman anymore. Dad said I was going to be a lawyer like the rest of the family. Being a lawyer looked boring dressing in a suit, carrying a briefcase, working behind a desk on the computer, and spending time in stuffy old courthouses. No, that isn’t what I wanted to do—never was, never will be.
I step outside into the sunlight and shield my eyes. Another perfect day in California. Too bad I have to spend it inside waiting for a special license that says I can keep driving the huge rigs I’ve been driving for almost four years already. What a waste of time.

 

I love summer, the smell of clean babies, lilacs and swimming. I’m a Midwestern mother of five, Mimi of two and owner of three fur babies.

I spend my weekdays writing full time and raising my family.

I write about intelligent women and the stubborn men who love them.
I write about turmoil and conflict. I write about the most complex, convoluted emotion we as humans experience.

I write about love.
