About THE LAST LETTER (Coming 2/26/2019):

Beckett,

If you’re reading this, well, you know the “last-letter” drill. You made it. I didn’t. Get off the guilt train, because I know if there were any chance you could have saved me, you would have.

I need one thing from you: Get out of the army and get to Telluride.

My little sister Ella’s raising the twins alone. She’s too independent and won’t accept help easily, but she has lost our grandmother, our parents, and now me. It’s too much for anyone to endure. It’s not fair.

And here’s the kicker: there’s something else you don’t know that’s tearing her family apart. She’s going to need help.

So if I’m gone, that means I can’t be there for Ella. I can’t help them through this. But you can. So I’m begging you, as my best friend, go take care of my sister, my family.

Please don’t make her go through it alone.

Ryan

Reese
I made a mistake that might have ruined someone’s life. I’ve moved to Sydney to avoid the glares and the questions from
the people back home, but there’s one thing I can’t run from—the guilt and pain that follows me relentlessly. All I can do is dull it with alcohol and casual sex. But then my new boss, Mr Dark and Delicious, deserted me, mid kiss, with my skirt hiked up and my shirt discarded on the alley floor. I should hate him―him and the secrets he’s keeping. But I can’t stay away. Because the pain and guilt he’s hiding mirror my own.
Low
All she wanted was one night. That, I could do. I’m the king of casual. Love them and leave them, before they leave me.
With chemistry off the scale, we couldn’t even make it home, both of us too impatient, ripping each other’s clothes off in the alleyway outside the bar. Then my phone buzzed, and one text message stopped everything. I couldn’t think. Couldn’t breathe. All I could do was run. I’m toxic, but I can’t tell her why. I can’t bear the look of horror I know would cross her face. But I
also don’t know how to keep something so life altering from the woman I’m falling for. Not when I need her just to survive it.

Unbreak this Heart by Betty Shrefler

Title: Unbreak This Heart
Author: Betty Shreffler
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone
Release Date: August 31, 2018
Blurb

Ever since that horrific night, I’d shut men completely out of my life. I’d gone from the spunky, fun, Alex DeMarco to a broken woman terrified of intimacy. Easing me back into dating, my best friend sets me up with kickboxing lessons from my charming and perfectly sculpted instructor—Carter Maxwell.   

Carter’s goal is to break through my emotional barrier and mold my heart just like he molds my body, but trusting men is a battle I’m not ready for. What’s worse is my ex fiancé, Todd Livingston—the man who tore my heart in two—wants me back, and as much as I’d like to deny it, the feelings are still there.
Both men want what I can’t give—my body and my love—and neither are willing to give up the fight. But only one of them can unbreak this heart of mine.

Blurb
“Your mother’s opiates are coming from Jose Herrera’s distribution network.” My pulse races as my stepfather speaks these words. Because taking on the Herreras also means taking on Diego.
Reckless, and hardened by a volatile past, Victoria does not see a future with Diego Herrera as a realistic option. As their childhood friendship ignites, they find themselves on opposite sides of a bloody feud between the two most powerful families in Mexico City. And she’s a Moreno now—brought up to be the secret weapon nobody suspected.
But Victoria can’t deny the attraction. Diego’s commanding muscles, the coarse, dark hair of his solid chest, that rugged scar above his sensuous lips…
Loyalty is in the eye of the beholder.

Trailer
Excerpt
My body is spent.
I want to feel him release inside of me. I want to collapse on top of him. I
want to keep fucking like two animals trying to survive a wilderness that is
both beautiful and vicious. Our chests heave in a unison that signals it’s not
over, and he starts pumping into me…
Except I’m
not just an animal. I turn my head towards the end table, lean over, and grab
his cell phone.
“Call them
off.” I shove the phone into his palms. “All of them. Tell them I’m not here.
That they made a mistake.”
Still
pumping into me, he stares at me with widened eyes. “Don’t be fucking crazy.
Let me walk you out of here and make everyone believe you’ve disappeared. At
least for a little while.”
He’s
hitting that spot. That warm and sensitive spot that makes me second-guess every
decision and every goal I’ve ever made or had. That makes me want to curl up
and be swept away and taken care of, even though I’ve never wanted that to be
any part of my long-term plan—because I’ve seen everything my mother has gained
and lost by being…taken care of.
Diego
searches my face for a place to reason. “What I’m offering…they’re going to
catch up to you eventually. And before you catch up to my uncle again. He’s the
second-in-line to a multinational business. You killed one of his men last night.
You almost killed him. You think no
one noticed? This would give us…a chance,” he pleads.
Although he
doesn’t say it, it’s the same proposal he made on our trip, except without the
ring.
I freeze.
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted. I’ve always been tempted. He’ll never
know how many times I ran my finger around the circumference of that diamond
band on the nightstand before I drove off, deciding on a different destiny. I
knew the moment I stepped in the old Peugeot that Diego’s ring would forever be
imprinted on my finger.
But…
“I can’t.”
My response
makes him choke on whatever he was about to say and roar in frustration. He’s
not the type of man to accept defeat.
His fingers
fumble on the phone screen. Awkwardly he holds it against his ear, spitting in
Spanish as he does what I’ve asked him to do.
He throws
the phone and then locks his forearms around my neck, pulling me closer to him.
His cock is still stiff, and it throbs inside of me, reminding me of why we’re
even in this position.
Cursing,
his lips find mine, biting, absorbing, demanding. And I reciprocate. I have
never been unwilling. Our tongues tangle as our bodies rock in unison again.

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.

  MONTANA HEAT

 

 

Montana Heat by Vanessa Vale is available now for only 99c!
This is a Small Town Romance 11k novella! Short and not so sweet!

BLURB

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.

Title: Bucking Bronco
Series: Sugar County Boys #1
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 6, 2018
Blurb
Big hat, big gun. Long, thick…rope. The biggest stud on the stallion ranch has his eyes on one lucky lady,
And if she wants to save a horse? Well, he’s got more “cowboy” than she’s ever ridden before. Rough, wild, and ready to buck all night.
I never needed much after I left my rodeo circuit days behind. Just me, my land, my horses, and my peace and fucking quiet.
But that’s before she comes crashing into my world like a wild filly.
Prettier than a country rose and fiercer than Kentucky moonshine. I’ve got her tied up good and tight after I mistake her for a horse thief. But one look at those big dark eyes, those legs that won’t quit, and those soft curves that beg to be held, and I’m not sure I’ll ever let her go.
I know I should stay away from a tempting, teasing little city girl like Tara Stokes. I know she works for the family on the other side of a blood feud from mine. But I also know one taste of those pouty lips and all I want to do is make her mine.
This little spitfire needs taming. Lucky for her, she’s shacked up with the biggest cowboy in Sugar County.
Cause country boys do it better. Country boys do it harder. And country boys can go all night log.
Tara might not know that yet.
…Oh, but she’s gonna.
REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So I am a little on the 4 and 5-star fence here. I enjoyed the story and I enjoyed the characters BUT I feel like everything was rushed. I feel like there could have been so much more to this story if there was more to it. So that is why I am having a problem with this story.

Tara and Colton don’t have the best of meetings at the beginning. Tara is trapped by one of Colton’s traps and is caught by Colton. So when he takes her to his home- by force, things don’t go well. But when Colton finds out who she is working for things go downhill even faster.

Tara just wants to do her job and get off Colton’s land. She had no idea that he would have traps on his property. She also didn’t know he would pull on a gun on her. But when he finds out what she is doing on his property he doesn’t take to kindly of her being there.

The chemistry is wonderful between these two. The story is a mystery that keeps you guessing. And I enjoy Colton’s mysterious family members. But again everything ended very quickly and that kind of sucked for me.

REVIEW
  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
⭐️

In this second book of the Sugar County Boys series, we meet Tucker and Walker. And man do we fall in love with them. These guys are long haulers for the bad guy Lawson in Sugar County. They do have morals though and won’t do the horrible hauls like women and hardcore drugs. But guns and weed they are all for. Go figure. So when they stop to get some food and see a woman that is about to get hurt by other men they step in. Little did they know they are asking for trouble by another rival crew.

Poor Sierra is in a crappy way. She really needs new friends. So when she is stranded with no one to help her, she doesn’t expect two really hot truckers to show up and beat the crap out of some men trying to hurt her.

When these three get together it is a wonderful story. I enjoyed this one very much and we get some great action in the end also. I am excited to see where the next one takes us
