Blurb

A second chance could either save him or destroy him…

Wes Cade was born with a competitive streak a mile wide. Ever since he could walk, he’s made it a point to never lose. And he never did, until his girlfriend left him senior year of college and his professional golf career tanked.

Over the past four years, Wes has fought to regain his winning edge. The last thing he needs as he prepares for the pro tour again is his ex-girlfriend sauntering into the golf shop on the arm of her new fiancé. But this might be his opportunity to win back what he’s lost.

Kaylee doesn't seem the contented fiancée she should be, or the cold-hearted girl who left him years ago—and she's hiding a secret. One Wes is determined to discover. Because if there's a chance he was wrong about Kaylee and she really had loved him, maybe he can break the mental block that’s left him in the rough.

Jules Barnard is fast becoming one of my go to authors and this series featuring  the Cade Brothers is a series I have fallen in love with, after reading book one I was really looking forward to the next brothers  story and it did not disappoint, I was up most of night because there was no way I was putting it down till I had read the final line.
Wes Cade is the pro golfer at the family luxury resort, he had always hoped to make it on the professional golf tour and had often put golf before everything else including the love  of his life Kylee, when she walks into the pro shop with her fiancé he suddenly realises what he had lost when he let her walk away from him back in their college days but is it too late.
This story is an emotional roller coaster, I laughed at the banter between the adults and one liners that an amazing little girl called Bella had but I also shed a tear as the story unfolded and we found out why Kylee walked out of Wes's life without an explanation. If anyone deserved second chance love it's Wes and Kylee but will the past be too much to overcome and will golf get in the way once again....
A brilliant read with plenty of humour, love and passion but this is also a book about families and loyalties, its a book I would recommend to anyone who loves second chance romance stories.
Looking forward to the next Cade brothers book.

SBPRBanner-KoC-BT

King of Code, an all-new intriguing and sexy standalone from CD Reiss is available NOW!

king-of-Code-v4-full

King of Code by CD Reiss Publication Date: September 18th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance

From New York Times Bestselling author, CD Reiss, comes a sexy tale of secrets, intrigue, betrayal, and a love worth crossing a continent for.
Taylor Harden is a man on the edge.
The edge of fame. The edge of untold wealth.
The edge of utter humiliation.
He built an unhackable system, and in front of everyone, it’s hacked.
His reputation goes from king to goat in a split second. Boom. Like that.
Some dude in Barrington, USA (AKA Nowhere) has locked down Taylor’s code, and if he doesn’t get it back, he’s going to be wearing a monkey suit for the rest of his life.
Except, this guy? This hacker from Nowhere? He’s not a guy.
Harper Watson’s all woman. And she has a plan for Taylor, his code, and his body.

Excerpt:

“About time!” the older lady shouted. “Is Harper back?” I asked, handing the bags to the blushing redhead. As if summoned, Harper came through the swinging door, keeping it open so everyone could get past. She looked at me through the screen. “You coming in?” she asked. “We need to talk.” “Did the decryption key work?” The door slapped closed behind her as she came out, and we were alone. The way the setting sun hit her cheeks made her glow, and the strands of gold hair at the edges looked translucent. She belonged on a postcard. I kept forgetting she was holding me hostage. I kept forgetting I needed to think strategically. I had more at stake with this girl than I’d ever had with another. “Did you doubt it would work?” “Not really. I’m just making conversation.” “What are the thorns about?” I pointed at the thorn bed that had eaten my phone and went down the stairs to the yard. She came after me. “Don’t you have these where you’re from?” She snapped a dry twig off the end. “Roses? Yes. Impenetrable, groomed thorn bushes in our yards? No.” “It’s not normal to give the gardeners in town something to do?” We walked around the perimeter. “You are not normal.” “It still blooms in spring. It’s really nice. You should see it.” We were at the back end of the yard, where the very top of the factory’s roof cut the horizon. I took her hand, pulling her to a stop. “Harper.” “Taylor?” Her hair flew in her mouth when she turned, and she drew her finger across her cheek to get it out. What was I supposed to tell her again? That I knew we’d interviewed her. That I didn’t give her the job despite her having a leg up on everyone else we saw. But was I contrite? Accusatory? Was I just going to relay information? What did I want out of her after I told her I knew? “Thank you for helping today,” she said. “If you’d asked me when we met, ‘Would Taylor Harden help clean the factory?’ I would have said, ‘No, not for any reason.’ But there you were. Pushing a broom. Scooping up shit. Not being an asshole.” “My watch was at stake.” “Yeah. Whatever. You can say what you want to keep your reputation as a shithead intact.” “I have a reputation as a shithead?” “You know you do.” I did know it, and I reveled in it. She faced me and put her other hand out. I took it, holding both hands between us. I couldn’t help it. “Well, you guys are such a bunch of sad sacks I had to help. And let me tell you, every guy in Barrington has a little asshole in him. Trust me. I’ve played pool with them.” “I want to say…” She stopped herself as if she really didn’t want to say. “Let’s get together tonight and get you another decryption code. But… saying this is stupid.” She bit her lip. “Say it anyway.” “The sooner you get four codes, the sooner you leave.” I looked at our hands so I wouldn’t have to look at her. “I’m not sure if I want that,” she said.

This was the first book that I’ve read by CD Reiss and wow! King of Code had me hooked from the very beginning.

King of Code is so unique from every other book I’ve ever read. I knew just from the blurb that I would be intrigued.

The story is about Taylor Harden the creator of QI4, a supposedly unhackable system. When Taylor is close to launching it, he invites the tech magazine Wired in to see his centre of operations. What he doesn’t expect is for his system to be hacked in front of everyone, making his new system completely useless.

He soon discovers that the hack originated from Barrington in the middle of nowhere, USA. He goes to find the culprit only to discover that it wasn’t a guy who hacked him but Harper Barrington.

The relationship that builds between Taylor and Harper is brilliant. It starts with Harper holding QI4 hostage until Taylor provides her with certain things. The relationship starts off as them hating each other but over time evolves into something that blows your mind. I loved how both characters developed throughout the story and the end result is truly amazing.

I highly recommend reading this book!!


About the Author

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine. _21A6258_pp-fb

Title: Birthday Girl

Author: Lily Kate

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Birthday Girl:

Good things come in extra-large, smoking hot birthday suits. Bad boy Cohen James has screwed up yet again. Star forward of Minnesota’s pro hockey team, Cohen’s made a name for himself—and not in a good way. So, at the insistence of his agent, he’s stuck volunteering at the local YMCA teaching introductory adult swim lessons for ten weeks. Ten weeks of torture. What he doesn’t expect is her. Annie Plymouth, star pupil. Her ruffled green bathing suit might be the most ridiculous thing he’s ever seen, but after a few heated breaststroke lessons and some intense mouth to mouth, Cohen’s ready to get her out of the water and into her birthday suit… except she has a different game plan. Is the pair destined to sink… or can they swim?

Exclusive Excerpt:

I hate water. Now, this hate is not a casual dislike of lakes, or even a modest mistrust of the ocean. It’s not even a slight hesitation to go swimming without a life jacket. No, my fear is all consuming. I am utterly, undeniably terrified of large bodies of water. I’ve managed to get by so far in life without learning the art of the front crawl—it’s always “that time of the month” during pool parties. My gym teacher probably thought I had a chronic case of the flu thanks to my spectacular acting performances to avoid swim class. At home, I generally avoid taking baths because I’m terrified of falling asleep and drowning in my own tub, but showers work just fine. My mother once tried to enroll me in swim lessons through the local community center, but I cried so hard that my teacher begged my mother to reconsider. Now that I’m twenty-two, she thinks enough time has passed to try again. I’m as equally unenthusiastic as I was the first time around. The only difference is that this time, I can’t sob my way out of it. “Dear, you need to face your fears,” my mother says again as I drag my feet into the locker room, dreading whatever the next hour will bring. “It’s for your safety.” “Yeah, right.” “What do you mean by that?” she snaps. “It is! I don’t want you to fall overboard after you’ve had one too many margaritas and die, Annie. Not on my wedding cruise. You’re the maid of honor for crying out loud.” “Right, and it’d be really inconvenient to plan a funeral from your honeymoon.” “We love you,” she says. “Claude and I care for your safety.” “Claude calls me Amanda. He doesn’t care about my survival.” She huffs, but doesn’t reply. She’s run out of arguments, I guess, which is just fine with me since I don’t want to discuss this any longer. I’m angry enough standing here at eight a.m. on a Saturday morning, in the middle of a late February snowstorm, freezing my ass off in a lime-green bathing suit.

Title: Whiskey Burning
Series: Iron Fury MC
Author: Bella Jewel
Genre: Romance
Release Date: September 25, 2017



Blurb

In the darkness is where I first met him.
Alone at a water fountain, tears rolling down my cheeks.
Ready to give up.
From the shadows, his voice came to me.
Soothing. Comforting. Rough as the blackest night.
I didn’t see him.
I didn’t even know his name.
All I knew was he saved me that night.
He put my back on my feet.
And he kept me on them.
Every single time I needed him, he found a way to come to me.
My stranger of the night.
My dark warrior.
My name is Scarlett. You probably know me.
I’m America’s number one country music star.
I’m also the loneliest girl you’ll ever meet.
He’s as free as a bird. A nomad. Travelling alone.
Nobody to hold him back.
He holds the freedom I pray for every single day.
He shows me that life can be so much more than what I’m living.
When danger comes knocking, he’ll also show me a different world.
A world I never knew existed.
A world that both terrifies and fascinates me.
A world that goes against everything I’ve ever known.
A world of Iron Fury.
