OH. MY. GOSH.  SERIOUSLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. Ya'll!  This book!  Laurelin KILLED it! She brought the heat, the heart, and all the alphaness! OH MY. *fans self* Holt Sebastian knows where he stands in life and isn't afraid to get what he wants. The tension between Holt and Brystin is something else! You see, Brystin is an ambitious, highly motivated newscaster and strives for more. Her husband is a means to that. But she's never encountered anyone like Holt Sebastian. I hung on to every word, every action of this book. I was completely enthralled and I couldn't put this book down. Holt is not like other men Laurelin has written and I was HERE FOR IT! I dont want to ruin this read for you, as I think you should go in blind, but just know if you like an alphahole, you'll LOVE Holt. Grab your copy now!




He’ll get what he wants—even if I’m already taken.

Holt Sebastian is royalty in our world.

As CEO of the Sebastian News Corp, he’s the man with all the power. The man who decides if I’ll always just be a local television anchor or if I’ll be the rising star of my own show.

I make it my mission to be noticed. Make him see my potential. But soon, it's clear he's the one in charge.

His possessiveness is brutal.

His eyes own everything they touch. I feel his gaze on me when he's in the room. The heat of them as they rake down my body, taking me in, marking me as his. He doesn’t just want me on the screen—he wants me in his bed.

And Holt Sebastian gets what he wants.

No one will stop him, no one will get in his way.

No one can protect me from his desire.

Not even the man who promised nothing would come between us and his ambition—my husband.

Laurelin Paige delivers a twist on Indecent Proposal in this billionaire workplace standalone romance featuring elements of fake relationship, marriage of convenience, enemies to lovers, and a new alphahole readers will love to hate.

Kelly Elliott - Fearless Enough review

Oooh boy! I was so excited to get little boy Blayze's story! I loved him as a kid and couldn't wait to see how life had been to him. This book did not disappoint! Blayze is all grown up and while life wasn't all bad, he had his fair share of bad handed to him. But he was stronger than that but it was still part of his past. It made him the man he was. Georgie had never forgotten about Blayze, but she was focused on becoming a journalist and wanted to do right by the the Shaw family. When her chance arises to tell their story, she is there for it. However, things don't go as planned and there are some choices to be made. But the chemistry and heat between Georgie and Blayze is intense and palpable through the pages! I loved these two together! Yes there's a past between them, but they also realize they are adults and they know what what they want. I couldn't read this book fast enough and I highly recommend this book!





Fearless Enough is a spin-off novel from New York Times bestselling author Kelly Elliott’s Meet Me in Montana series. Readers will head back to Hamilton, Montana, for a family reunion like no other!

Blayze Shaw could sum up his life in one word, fulfilling. He grew up in the shadow of his famous father, Brock Shaw, a multi-year PBR champion, but chose not to follow in his dad's footsteps. Instead, choosing to work on the family’s cattle ranch in Hamilton, Montana. Everything in his life was exactly how he wanted it, and he was the happiest he'd ever been.

When a woman from his past resurfaces and is given the task of diving deep into his world for the answers he isn’t willing to share, Blayze’s perfect world is thrown into a tailspin. He wants to dislike her, but the more time they spend together bickering back and forth, the harder it is to fight his feelings.

Georgiana Crenshaw is chasing a career as a sports reporter and has something to prove to the top dogs at the network where she works. She hasn’t made it this far simply because of who her father is. Georgiana has succeeded solely due to hard work and determination. She dives in when given a chance to show she has what it takes to get the promotion she desperately wants. Told it will be the interview of a lifetime, Georgiana shows up at the airport with a go-get-'em attitude. Only when her father tells her who she'll be interviewing does she have a moment of doubt.

But honestly, how hard could it be to interview an arrogant, self-centered, obnoxious, too handsome for his own good flirt, who gave Georgiana her first kiss behind the barn on his father's ranch?

Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde - Just A little Hookup review

 

Release Date: March 21

Being a bachelor has its perks. It also has its downside. Just ask Derek Bettencourt. 

Standing on stage and being auctioned off in the name of charity is awkward AF… until Derek's business partner’s younger sister wins him for the weekend. He’s all hers to do with as she pleases and he can’t say he’s unhappy with the prospect. Especially since she saved him from an ex-fiancĂ©e determined to get her claws into him again.

Jessica Cavanaugh never intended to bid on her lifetime crush. But her spur-of-the-moment decision gives her a chance to exact a bit of playful payback, for old time’s sake. And Derek is all too happy to indulge Jessica's whims.

What starts as a fun, flirty, game, with Derek acting as her personal handyman, quickly turns into a steamy, forbidden weekend. Lines are crossed that they never intended and emotions unravel their playful facades. Afterward, he can’t get the gorgeous, full-figured woman out of his head and he’s determined to make her his.

But how can they concentrate on a future when someone is threatened by their relationship and will do anything to come between them?

* A Dare Crossover novel featuring Derek Bettencourt from Carly Phillips’ novel, Just One Taste.

My Review

I was here for this friends to lovers read! I really enjoyed this book and found myself quickly lost in Derek and Jessica's story! Jessica wasn't planning on bidding on Derek at auction, but circumstances changed and soon she found herself the highest bidder. She knew what she needed and that was help with things around her home. Not to mention, a little payback. I liked the push/pull between these characters and they felt realistic! Jessica was a confident woman and she knew what she wanted. Derek didn't need his family weighing in on his love life and wanted to get to know Jessica better, but didn't want anything to come between him and Jessica's brother. I liked the honesty in this book and the openness between them. I couldn't read this book fast enough and I definitely recommend!

Stacy Travis - He’s A Charmer review

 

He's a Charmer by Stacy Travis is now live! 

Snowed in for days with a gorgeous soccer star? Maybe that's someone's else's dream vacation, but not mine.

I'm a small town girl with big-city dreams of seeing San Francisco-cable cars and wine bars and the Golden Gate Bridge-not getting stranded during a blizzard in a tiny mountain cabin. 

And definitely not fixing leaks and playing endless board games with my brother's grumpy best friend, who has zero construction skills and even less charm.

Did I mention there's only one bed?

I'm on a self-imposed man ban, so I try to ignore his sculpted abs and gorgeous dark eyes. He tests my resolve with his gourmet cooking and perfect campfires, but even those can't make up for his prickly personality. 

Problem is, once Danny Weston starts to drop his guard, I begin to understand him. His painful secrets rival my own, and his beautiful, tender heart begins to melt mine. 

Which leads to one unforgettable night when our resistance wears so paper thin, it rips to shreds.

I shouldn't want him at all. And I shouldn't think about what would happen if this vacation fling becomes permanent.

Weston is known for breaking records on the field. But what happens if he breaks my heart?

He's a Charmer is a brother's best friend sports romance and a full-length standalone novel. It is Book 3 in the San Francisco Strikers series.

My Review

Do you ever need a light-hearted, easy to get lost in, read? Then look no further! This book was fast paced and easy to read! I didn't want it to be over. I love a good forced proximity story and this one involves a snowstorm. *Rubs hands together* Oh yeah! I was here for it! Linnie is trying to start a better habit and is detoxing from boys. Weston isn’t having a great day and there’s a problem at his cabin. Neither he or Linnie expect a snowstorm but they’re making the most of it. I loved the banter between them, the inner struggle they found and just passing the time. Do yourself a favor and grab this book right now! 



Meet Stacy

Stacy Travis writes spicy small-town romance about bookish, sassy women and the hot heroes who fall for them. 

Writing makes her infinitely happy, but that might be the coffee talking.  

She's worked as a journalist, camp counselor, TV writer, SAT tutor, corporate finance researcher, education technology editor, and non-fiction author. When she's not on a deadline, she's in running shoes complaining that all roads seem to go uphill. Or on the couch with a margarita. Or fangirling at a soccer game. 

She's never met a dog she didn't want to hug. And if you have no plans for Thanksgiving, she'll probably invite you to dinner. 

Stacy lives in Los Angeles with her two sons and a poorly-trained rescue dog who hoards socks. And she's serious about the Thanksgiving thing.
