freed (1)
Fall for the missing Ward sister…
Juliette Collins is privileged and isolated from the world by her over-protective father. She thinks she knows the truth about her history until a file in her father’s safe reveals she has sisters she never knew about. A family she’s never met. Betrayed, she realizes there’s a life waiting for her outside the walls of her daddy’s New York City penthouse and Juliet is determined to live it. Against her father’s wishes, she heads to a small beach community to meet her siblings… and finds herself way out of her depth instead.
In the personal protection business, Braden Clark thinks nothing of taking on a job to watch over a city girl in town for the summer. If her father wants to know his daughter is safe, it’s no problem and an easy way of earning a paycheck. Except Braden doesn’t count on falling for the sheltered Juliette. Watching her experience her firsts, getting an apartment, finding a job, meeting up with her lost sisters, soon Braden’s brand of protection becomes a little too personal. He’s mixing business with pleasure and lying to a woman he’s coming to care deeply about.
Sexual attraction burns bright between them and Braden is by her side as she finds herself, her family, and what it means to love... but what happens when she discovers his secret? That he’s been paid to watch over her all along?

“You have a customer. First booth.” Grace tipped her head toward the front of the restaurant. ““And he’s a cute one. Single, too,” Grace said with a wink.
“So this is what small-town living is like? You know everyone?”
She nodded. “And everyone gets to know you. Now shoo.” She waggled her fingers, indicating Juliette should head up front and serve her customer.
She put a smile on her face and strode toward the first table, stopping short when she came upon him.
He had thick, brown wavy hair, with a strong jaw and hazel eyes, and Grace hadn’t done him justice calling him cute. He was downright gorgeous. A navy tee shirt accented his muscular frame. He had to work out, given the flex and pull of his biceps as he picked up a glass of water and took a long sip.
The men she knew in New York were flimsy compared to this hunky specimen. They wore suits their bodies didn’t fill out and had weak facial profiles. This guy was everything she didn’t know to want, but she was certain he’d be in her dreams from now on.
She swallowed hard and approached, gripping the coffeepot in her hand. “Good morning.”
He looked up and his eyes locked on hers. His mossy-green-brown gaze bored into hers and held on so long the stare felt like a warm caress.
“Good morning to you, pretty lady.”
At his gruff words, a warm flush rose to her cheeks. “Coffee?” she asked, lifting the carafe, her hand suddenly trembling.
“Sure. Thank you.”
She somehow managed to pour the liquid without spilling, but she filled the coffee too high and it seeped over the top, leaking first on the table and then onto his lap.
He jerked as the hot liquid hit his pants.
“Oh my God, I’m so sorry.” She put the carafe down with a clatter, picked up the nearest napkin, and began blotting his shirt and his lap, pressing down to soak up the liquid, only to come into contact with his hard, thick– “Oh!” She yanked her hand back, further mortified.
“You could keep going,” he said, eyes twinkling with laughter.
She wanted to crawl beneath the nearest table and stay there. “I’m so sorry. Did it burn you?” she asked, her cheeks flaming.
“No. It must have been cooler than you realized. I’m fine. Really.”
“Is everything okay over here?” Grace asked, walking over, obviously concerned.
Juliette stepped up, taking responsibility. “I–“
“Just a little accident,” the man said. “It’s no big deal.”
A customer called Grace’s name and she walked away, the incident forgotten. Juliette wished she could put it behind her as easily.
“How about we introduce ourselves, considering you had your hand on my–“
“Juliette,” she said quickly, before he could finish his sentence. “Juliette Collins.”
“Braden Clark,” he said with a knowing grin that made her weak in the knees.
The man’s impact was potent.
“Nice to meet you, Juliette.”
“Same,” she murmured. “Now can I get you a fresh cup of coffee?”
“That would be great.”
She gently picked up the overflowed cup and headed for the kitchen, returning to him with an empty mug and a towel to clean the table. A few careful minutes of serving later, he had his coffee and she was back to her duties, feeling his gaze on her as she worked. His name is Braden Clark and he’s a regular.”
Juliette picked up the coffee carafe. “I’ve got it.”

Book three in what has become one of my favourite series. I thoroughly enjoy Ms. Phillips  writing style and Freed is no exception. Her characters are strong and easy to relate too and I particularly liked how she built the story up.

For years Juliette Collins has been isolated from the world, not knowing that she has sisters who have been searching for her. That is until she discovers a file on her father’s computer and she learns the shocking truth.Her father is dead set against her seeking out her sisters but Juliette has had enough, she wants, no needs, to know her siblings.

Braden Clark, a private investigator, has been employed to watch over Juliette by her over protective father. What he doesn’t count on is being attracted to his charge. The attraction growing between Juliette and Braden is strong and hard to ignore. Life is about to get complicated for these two.

What will happen when Juliette finds out the truth about who he really is? Will she be able to forgive his deception?

It was so nice to catch up on the previous two couples and see what is happening in their lives and it was heart warming to watch the love and relationship develop between Juliette and her sisters,Phoebe and Halley.     

I truly felt for Braden and the struggle he has with a father suffering from Alzheimer's and the difficulties he has in trying to keep his business afloat and care for his father.

The chemistry between Juliette and Braden, their story romantic. I really liked both the main characters and found myself totally engrossed in their story.

Although a stand alone I do think you would enjoy reading book 1 Fearless as well. This series gets better and better and I cannot wait for the next book in the Rosewood Bay series.

Freed is book 3 in the Rosewood Bay Series and this is Juliette the sister Phoebe and Halley Ward have been searching for’s story. Phoebe and Halley know they had a younger sister but Juliette only found out by accident that she had 2 older half sisters living in Rosewood Bay. Juliette determined to get to meet her extended family makes the decision to move to the Bay for the summer and although her father can’t stop her he can at least put a PI on her case to watch and report back to him. Braden is a local PI  and when he is approached by Mr Collins to watch his daughter he sees it as just another job that will help when he finally has to pay for his father who has Alzheimer’s to go into a nursing home what he didn’t expect was to fall hook line and sinker for the naive city girl. But what will happen when Juliette finds out someone else she has trusted has lied to her.......
This is a great story revolving around a family finally getting to know each other, it’s about love and trust but it’s also a story that touches on the hard subject of caring and watching someone you live with suffer from the terrible Alzheimer’s disease and I have to say this author covered that subject with compassion. This is a beautifully written love story that touched my heart, the characters are easy to like and the chemistry and banter is perfect. Looking forward to the next visit to the inhabitants of Rosewood Bay.

BLIND LOVE by Kelly Elliott - Excerpt Reveal

Harley and I had our whole lives planned out, until her plans changed, and those plans didn't include me. After years spent trying to get the love of my life out of my head and repair my too-damaged heart, I thought I was finally moving on…but life sure has a funny way of letting you know when those best-laid plans are about to be turned upside down. My entire world was rocked when Harley unexpectedly moved back to Oak Springs. Every miserable moment I'd spent trying to get over her and every hour I'd wasted trying to erase her from my life came back to haunt me the minute she walked into my office, fear in her eyes, and asked me for help. Would I…or better yet, could I walk away from her this time after all that she had put me through? What I really needed to know is would I be able to forge ahead with the future I had so meticulously planned—one that didn't include Harley—or will her return finally open my eyes to a future full of endless possibilities?   Blind Love is book five in the Cowboys and Angels series.

    Once I turned the corner I ran into something solid and knew I had spoken too soon. “Harley? Darling, what are you doing?” Taking a step back, I looked up into the deepest of blue eyes. They almost left me breathless. John Parker. The man was the older image of all of his five sons. Handsome. Built. And a smile that made your knees week. “Oh shit,” I mumbled. “Hell, shit, fuck,” Chloe whispered next to me. “Chloe Lynn!” John said. “Hey, what’s going on?” My eyes darted to Tripp. Great. Just great. “Oh hey. I was, um, just showing Chloe your new puppy.” Tripp’s eyes about popped out of his head. Of course, the little rascal who had started all of this was standing next to me giggling. “Ah. Come again?” Tripp asked. “You got a dog, Tripp? That’s amazing,” John said as he turned and smiled big. “I’ve been telling him for years he needed a dog.” I let out a nervous laugh. “Well, he’s got a cute one!” “Wait. What?” Tripp said as he shot daggers at me. “Who’s got a cute what?” Trevor asked, walking in behind Tripp and his father. Of course, the whole damn family would be walking through the very door I was trying to escape out of. We would have been better off going out the front door. “Tripp’s got a new puppy!” Chloe called out as I hit her on the arm as a warning. “Wait!” Tripp cried. I panicked and did the only thing I could think of. I unwrapped the puppy and shoved it in Trevor’s face. When he was little he was a sucker for a cute puppy; I was hoping things hadn’t changed. “Oh, my gosh! Look at this little guy,” Trevor said in a baby voice as he took the puppy from my hands. “Great, you want him? He’s yours,” Tripp said. “It’s a girl!” Chloe said with a clap of her hands. I hit her a few times to get her to take it back a few. We weren’t out of the woods yet. “Aww, he’s so cute. Don’t worry, Tripp. I won’t steal your girl.” Trevor looked at me when he said that and winked, causing my cheeks to heat up. “Now wait a second here,” Tripp started. I knew I had to cut him off. “Tripp mentioned he wanted a hound dog, and when I saw this little girl in town, well, I had to get her.” I could feel angry eyes on me, but I kept going. “I mean, she was the last puppy and I felt so bad, I had to take her.” Looking at Tripp, I motioned with my head to Chloe, hoping he would catch on. “He was afraid y’all might be mad if she was in the house so I was fixin’ to take her to the barn.” “What? Nonsense. Tripp, we don’t mind your puppy being in the house,” John stated. “Hell, Patches is always in the house,” Trevor said with a deep rumbling laugh. John sighed and lifted his cowboy hat to run his hand through his dark hair. A sigh of resignation escaped his lips. “What’s her name, Tripp?” Trevor asked. Chloe grabbed onto my hand and squeezed it hard as I held my breath. It felt like forever before Tripp finally spoke. “Hemingway’s Whiskey. Hemi, for short.” I pinched my brows together as I tried to figure out how in the hell he came up with that name off the top of his head. I knew it was a Kenny Chesney song, and Tripp liked his Kenny Chesney. But Hemi? “What the hell kind of name is that for a girl?” Trevor asked. Tripp forced a smile. “The moment I found out the dog was mine, I wanted to drink a fifth of whiskey.”

Release Blitz: SIREN BELOVED by Lexi Blake


Aidan O’Malley walked away from his fiancĂ©e, Lexi, and their best friend, Lucas, after a night of passion left him shaken to his core. Years later, Aidan returns home from Iraq haunted by all he has lost. The enemy broke his body, destroying his dreams of a career in music. Worse still, he lost Lexi and Lucas. That damage he’d done all by himself. While he can’t restore what combat took from him, he’s determined to reclaim the two loves of his life. Lucas Cameron is a changed man. After connecting with his brother, he found the discipline to get his life on track. His legal career is flourishing, but his love life is a train wreck. The woman he loves is spiraling out of control. After Aidan abandoned them, Lucas and Lexi clung together but no matter how hard he tries, Lucas can’t find a way to heal the wounds that Lexi carries. Lexi Moore feels like a jigsaw puzzle with too many missing pieces. Losing Aidan was hard, but the true reason for her shattered spirit is a secret she only shares with her beloved Lucas. She knows she is drowning and the time has come to heal, but the holes in her heart hold her back from moving on. Shedding the burden she carries is her only hope for a happy future, but she fears she will never have the strength to reveal her secret. When Aidan walks back into their lives, Lucas and Lexi know everything is about to change. But as they fight to reconcile their past and reclaim what they lost, a vicious predator stalks Lexi. In order to stop the killer, all three must confront the secrets they’ve carried…before they’re buried by them.

      Lexi realized she was in serious trouble the minute the words left Lucas’s mouth. Hell, she’d realized she was in trouble the minute she opened her mouth. What was she thinking? She knew damn well how to behave in a dungeon, but something about this Master made her want to push him. Damn it. She’d been this way all of her life. She had to push. She thought about taking a step back, but before she could make her feet move, Master A had her in a fireman’s hold. “Hey!” She shouted as her world upended. She turned her head up to throw a desperate look Lucas’s way. Lucas stood there, a stony cold look on his face. In that moment, he was all Dom, and she’d never seen him look hotter. There was a confidence about him she had rarely seen when he was around her. Lucas was utterly in command at work, but his surety faltered when she walked into the room. Even when he performed a scene with her, she knew he worried about her comfort. He didn’t look worried now. He looked ready. Her heart started to pound as Master A turned, and she lost sight of Lucas. “I need a chair, Lucas.” The words came out of the Master’s mouth like a judge delivering a sentence. “Yes, Sir.” Lucas’s words were silky smooth. There was not a hint of hesitation now. She could hear him moving to do Master A’s bidding. “What do you think you’re doing?” she asked, though she was a bit less hostile now. She’d fucked up. She was glad Julian wasn’t around to witness it, though Leo would probably tell him. Tears pricked her eyes. Damn, she was proving to Leo she couldn’t handle the lifestyle. “Look, Sir, I’m sorry. It was wrong of me to be rude to you, but I was merely pointing out that Lucas and I had a plan for tonight.” Reason. She could reason with him, surely. It worked on all the men in her life. Of course, usually she was looking at them instead of trying to plead her case to a group of back muscles. The muscles were unbelievably tight, but his skin—oh, his skin had been decimated in his lower back. It was a mess of white, puckered flesh, and she could see both neat, surgical lines, and jagged edges. She reached out to touch the mass of scars, but she was jerked back over his shoulder and set on her feet before she could make it. She wobbled on her heels, but Master A’s big hands held her shoulders. “I don’t think you understand how this is going to go, sub. I am the Master, and you are the one being punished. I won’t put up with a spoiled princess telling me how her punishment will go. It will go the way I say it will go. First, you will pay for the insult to me, and then we’ll proceed to the sawhorse.” “I don’t like the sawhorse.” The words came out breathy and small, because she was beginning to understand that this was serious. Master A didn’t look like he was planning on giving in. And she hated being called a spoiled princess, but a part of her worried that he was right. The last few years, she’d allowed herself to become spoiled and dependent. She’d fled from everything that hurt her. She’d hidden. She’d let her stepfathers and Lucas coddle and provide for her so she didn’t have to face the truth. Master A didn’t flinch. “I don’t care. Lucas has done the best he can, but the truth is he wasn’t trained to be a Dom. He might enjoy it from time to time, but he prefers bottoming. You require a firm hand. If you don’t want it, then you’re free to leave. No one is holding you against your will. This is all about consensual play, so you have to make the choice. Do you want the session to continue?” She hated this part. This was the part that she’d never understood. She had to make the choice, and she couldn’t put it off on anyone else. She wanted for him to simply do it. Then she could blame him later, but that wasn’t what The Club was about. She’d been coming here for over a year, and she finally had to decide to make the choice—stay and put herself in the hands of a stranger, or go and never know what it was like. And then there was the fact that Master A was right. Lucas needed something she couldn’t give him. She cast her eyes down submissively. How bad could it be? “Yes, Sir.” “Then strip.”    

Firstly this is a M/M/F story so be prepared and possibly my favourite to date in the Texas Sirens series. I really enjoy Ms.Oak (Lexi Blake’s) style of writing and Siren Beloved was one of those reads I could not put down.  
We have met Lucas Cameron and Lexi Moore in previous books in the series and I knew that when they got their story it was going to be something special.  Little did I realise how the pairing of Lexi and Lucas with  Aidan O’Malley would come together in such an explosive and riveting story.
“What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive”. Aidan made the biggest mistake of his life leaving the only people he has ever truly loved. Uncertain and tormented by his night of passion with Lucas and Lexi, he did the only thing he could think of, he ran, joining the services.
Home and recovering from serious injuries, he now knows what he wants from life and that is both Lucas and Lexi; of course knowing that and being given a chance to re join their lives is not going to be easy. They say women are matchmakers, but Lexi’s step father Jack, Julian and Leo all come together to help Aidan in his quest to seek forgiveness and in turn bring all three of them back to life.
Not knowing what has happened since he has been gone, will Aidan be able to convince Lucas and Lexi to give him another chance? Can Lexi come to terms with all she has loved and lost and finally open up to those who love her about the tragic secret she holds so tight? Will the danger that Aidan, Lucas and Lexi find themselves in end with their love being destroyed before it gains ground? One click now and find out.
Although Siren Beloved  is not a particularly long read, I found myself reading well into the night; a story of acceptance, passion, strength and determination. There was romance and suspense woven into the story and the scenes were smoking hot; it was also an extremal emotional read which totally got to me.

Siren Beloved is the fourth book in the Texas Sirens series and if you have had the chance to read the previous books you will be familiar with Lucas and Lexi. If not, read this book and fall in love with them. We now get their back story when Aidan comes back into their lives and fills in the hole that has been there since he left. 
Lexi Blake has done another great job in this small town romance bringing us memorable characters(old and new), sexy moments, secrets and a bit of angst to keep the pages turning! 

NY Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Blake lives in North Texas with her husband, three kids, and the laziest rescue dog in the world. She began writing at a young age, concentrating on plays and journalism. It wasn’t until she started writing romance and urban fantasy that she found the stories of her heart. She likes to find humor in the strangest places and believes in happy endings no matter how odd the couple, threesome, or foursome may seem.


LOVE MACHINE by Kendall Ryan - Review Blitz

A best-friends-to lovers standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan. After a rather uncomfortable ladies’ night involving a cucumber-wielding instructor with judgy eyes, I’m forced to admit my weaknesses. Rather than point blame at my lack of a sex life, I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work. As a junior executive who’s clawed her way up the corporate ladder, failure is not in my vocabulary. Confident and bold in other areas of my life, I have to admit it’s time to up my bedroom game. Asking my friend Slate Cruz is really the only option. Slate is like a walking billboard for sex. The man gets more ass than a toilet seat. There’s no way I’ll want more from this playboy than a little inspiration to revive my inner sex kitten. Except, what happens if I do?      


Amazon US | Amazon UK | iBooks | Kobo | Nook | Google


This book about best friends was such an easy wonderful read that I must admit tugged at my heart so very much.
Best friends for ten years, Keaton and Slate have such a beautiful friendship!The banter was hilarious, especially when getting together with Karina and Gabby! The innuendo’s, the flirtatious moments and the whole premise of this story captured me!
I think what I came to realize is that a truly great friendship is hard to come by and if you have that hold onto it tight!
When Keaton asks Slate to be her “love coach”, needless to say what happens once they begin this journey is eye opening as well as incredibly steamy!
Can a true bond between friends stay the same or will feelings get in the way!!
I laughed, I cried, I swooned and sighed....
This book was truly beautiful!

Yet another 5 Star read from the very talented Kendall Ryan and in Love Machine we get to know Keaton and Slade who happen to be best friends. 
Keaton spent a disastrous night at her friends bachelorette party and has now convinced herself she needs help between the sheets and she can’t think of anyone better that her wingman Slade for the job. Slade is happy to point her in the right direction because after all Keaton is a woman who is easy  on the eyes and she also happens to be  his best friend but rules need to be made and the number one rule is they will still remain best friends after the lessons have finished...........
This is a brilliant stand-alone and if you love friends to lovers with a lot of hot funny banter this is a must read. I fell for Slade hook line and sinker and Keaton was the perfect partner for him, the characters have sizzling chemistry but they also have a charisma that draws you in. I couldn’t put this book down and once again I find myself saying this is the best I have read from this author well until the next book because Kendall Ryan become  one of my go to authors.

I haven’t read much by this author and after reading DILF Diaries I’m beginning  to wonder why because this is enemies to lovers and romantic comedy at its best.
Jack Decker is the fireman every girl in town wants, woman do all sorts of outrageous things to get his attention and on the face of it he accepts every challenge they throw at him but is he a playboy or has he built a life around himself to protect his feelings. Juliet is his neighbor and as a nurse working shifts the last thing she needs night after night are parties and woman parading around when she is trying to sleep so needless to say Jack and Juliet don’t get on but could this be about to change with the arrival of a baby on Jack’s doorstep.........
A new baby brings all sorts of different challenges for Jack but if truth be known it’s just what he wants a family of his own. Baby Ramsey fast becomes the star of this book and you really can’t help laughing out loud when Jack is learning the things you can do and the things you can’t do with a baby like changing their formula by mistake. This was a adorable funny read and I can’t wait for more in this series.

This was a new author to me and can I just say, what a way to start my reading experience off.  There were so many snort out loud moments that my husband thought I was crazy and I ended up in tears.  
What happens when a smoking hot fireman and his uptight neighbour come together? Women are clamouring for Jack Decker’s attention, even going as far as manufacturing situations to get his attention and staking out positions in the park to watch him run. Jack knows that everyone thinks he is a playboy, but underneath the surface lurks the heart of a man who has never really gotten over having his heart broken.
Juliet, a nurse,  is Jack’s next door neighbour and not a particularly friendly one at that. Constantly complaining that Jack is too noisy she really isn’t someone that Jack wants to get to know.
When she hears a baby crying continuously she finds a tiny bundle wrapped up on Jack’s doorstep. Jack has not a clue about babies but thankfully is “family” step in to help. Jules begins to see that there is way more to Jack than meets the eye and slowly opens herself to him.
This was not a straight forward story as there were a few twists and turns that kept me guessing which I loved.
The chemistry between Jack and Jules is off the charts and there were certainly many swoon worthy moments throughout this book.
This is book one ion a new series from Stephanie St Klair and be assured I will be waiting with anticipation for the next release.
One click this little gem, I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Title: Peony Red

Author: J. Lynn Bailey

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Day: August 14th

About Peony Red:

Alex Fisher hasn’t been able to find her stride since the death of her husband three years ago. She’s out of a job, out of time, and running on fumes. So, when she receives two postcards from Granite Harbor, Maine, inviting her for a visit, she takes it as a sign for a start fresh. For game warden Eli Young, life is simpler when he’s exploring the back roads of Maine. In the north woods, he doesn’t have to deal with town politics or his soon-to-be ex-wife. When Alex makes Eli an offer he can’t refuse, he should say no. He should walk away. Except he can’t. Something about her leaves him tangled. A dark storm is brewing in the small coastal town, and everyone is on edge when word spreads quickly about a young woman who has gone missing. When a picture of Alex shows up at a gruesome scene, no one is prepared for what will happen next. Eli wants to save Alex, but she has to save herself. The question isn’t, Can she? It’s, Will she?

Exclusive Excerpt:

Alex looks ahead, and I watch her. The snowflakes dance and stick to her face; some attach themselves to her eyelashes. Alex holds her hands out and tries to catch a few. We walk to her side of the truck, only because she has the coffees. She’s gotten more adjusted to the door thing. She said I’d probably tire out soon from opening the door all the time, but I told her it’d take a lifetime. Before I let her in, I hesitate. Not sure if I should do this in town with people watching. But I do it anyway. I lean down, and I kiss her in the softest way possible on her cheek. I linger there for a moment and then pull away, looking down into her caramel-colored eyes. She stares back, and all is quiet as the snow falls around us. “What was that for?” she whispers. “For all the times Kyle can’t.”
