Title: Craft

Series: The Gibson Boys #2

Author: Adriana Locke

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 14, 2018
They’re not quite enemies. Not really friends.
More like frustrated balls of sexual tension and neither will give in.
Lance Gibson drives Mariah Malarkey absolutely
crazy. He uses her office like a phone booth, takes cupcakes from the corner of
her desk like she baked them just for him. She didn’t. Maybe she knew the
history teacher happened to love peanut butter icing, but that was purely a
coincidence. All sixteen times.
Mariah has a way of getting under Lance’s skin
too. She calls him out on his crap, spoils him even if inadvertently, and
seeing the librarian in skirts drives him wild. She won’t give in. It’s for the
best, really, considering there’s no way he could lie to a woman like that and
he’s not about to tell her the truth about himself. Not in a million years.
These two don’t hate each other. They don’t
really like each other. But for this to be a friends-to-lovers story, they have
to start somewhere, right?
Note: This can be read as a standalone novel.

Lance and Mariah are so much fun to read about.  His love of driving her crazy is a win for us as readers.  Hilarious at time and yet moving and sweet…all of this even before we get a romantic connection.  Lance is very open about his sexual exploits and Mariah isn’t too happy about it all, and yet you can’t help your attraction to someone.  Lance, even if he won’t admit it out loud, has a thing for the fiery librarian.
Dynamite is a good way to describe this book.  You see the lit match and you are waiting for the explosion.  And it is definitely worth the wait.  I love some good banter and the author delivers that in spades here.  This book is just so much fun to read that if you are in a reading rut, this will get you out of it, I promise.
This is told in dual POV and it is so great to get inside the heads of both Landon and Mariah.  I love also his family, they are the best and this is an absolute standalone, but I do recommend reading, either before or after Crank cause you will love the Gibson boys.

Possessive by Willow Winters

**Review at the bottom

Title: Possessive
Author: Willow Winters

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: March 13, 2018

From USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters, comes a provocative, standalone, contemporary romance.
Some men are born with a black heart and a tainted soul. 
I never liked to admit it back then; I thought I could outrun who I am and lie
to myself.
But I accept the truth now.
It’s in my blood and in my bones. In every impure thought and desire.
I tried to leave. To do the right thing and walk away from my past.
But then she came back into my life.
Stumbling towards me and looking up at me as if I’m the one she’s been looking
for all this time.
As if I could be her savior and take her pain away.


If only she knew. 
She turns me into what I hate most about myself.
Selfish, ruthless, possessive.
I tried to be a good man. To be cold and distant and warn her away.
She should have taken the hint and run.
She didn’t…
And now she’s mine.

Author Bio

Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Bestselling Romance Author. She likes her action hot and her bad boys hotter. She certainly doesn’t hold back on either one in her writing!Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two.

In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!

Daniel and Addison have a past and not a romantic one and yet they have been drawn to each other from the beginning….tragedy strikes and time passes.  Running into each other in a bar will change their future.
Addison’s past made it hard to trust and really made it hard for her to feel worthy, and we see that really throughout the story.  I love that it isn’t a trait that just changed quickly because that isn’t realistic, views of yourself are hard to change, even if you are in a happy relationship.  Daniel while an alpha is aggressive yet doesn’t push Addison much and sometimes I wish he would have actually gone after her, etc….
This is a dark book in some ways but sweet and loving in others.  It is told in dual POV and you really get into each of their heads.  The author does a great job of sucking you in and keeping you there until the very end.  Some suspense keeps you on your toes and once you start you won’t be able to put it down.

All they want is everything they can’t have.


Yes, yes, I’ve heard the rumors.
The prince is royal, and cocky and has a—well never mind about all that.
The problem is, he’s also my job.

When the King called on me to retrieve the wayward prince, I was ready to walk away.

Then I caught my boyfriend cheating—and suddenly leaving never felt like a better idea.


I never wanted the throne.

When I left behind my gilded cage of a palace, it all sounded so simple: find my long-lost brother & make him the prince so I don’t have to rule the kingdom like my father expects.

Then I meet my new neighbor, and quickly realize I’ve found the queen of my heart—and bed.

Just one problem, I can’t let her find out who I really am.

What good is a King without his Queen?


I never wanted the crown, but now it’s mine.
Instead of my freedom–instead of her.
But even though she’s not mine to keep, I can’t seem to stay away.


The moment he became king, I knew we were over.

Now I’ve returned home some kind of conquering hero.
If only they all knew that we’d both lost our hearts.
If only I could stay out of the royal bed.

What good is being cocky if you can’t get what you want?

Paradise Found by Sarah O’Rourke

Paradise Found by Sarah O’Rourke – Review



Samantha “The Body” Dixon had once been a famous runway model who’d walked every catwalk from Paris to Milan and back again. When her career abruptly comes to a screeching halt, this leggy blonde sets out to prove she’s got a whole lot more to offer than just a pretty face and killer rack – especially when fate lands her back on her former fiancé’s radar.

Benjamin Atkins might have once been the most in demand photographer in the fashion industry, but times have changed, and he’d learned the hard way to value substance over style. Now, he’s built a new life doing what he loves in the beautiful town of Paradise, Tennessee. That is, until the woman he could never forget struts back into his life.

When these two ex-lovers reconnect after a bitter break-up, can they overcome their heartbreak and find a way back to their own personal paradise found?

Paradise Found Teaser She Wanted Him


Ben shrugged negligently. “Can’t help it. It’s a really great ass. Always has been,” he complimented her easily as he eyed her body appreciatively.

It ought to be, Sami thought wryly as her body heated under the weight of his stare. She’d certainly worked hard enough to maintain it over the years. For all the good it had done her, she thought bitterly. Even after all the dieting and exercising, she’d still lost her modeling contract to a younger, shinier version of herself. Of course, that wasn’t Ben’s fault and being a bitch to him now wouldn’t get her job back. “Thanks,” she muttered, “It’s not quite as perky as it once was, but I try to keep it in shape.

“Trust me, babe, your ass is as gorgeous as it ever was,” Ben assured her with a playful wink.

God, was she imagining things or was he actually flirting with her? Mentally giving herself a sound slap on the back of her head, Sami knew she couldn’t let her thoughts wander in that direction. She needed to cut this painfully familiar banter off now. “That doesn’t answer my other question, Ben . Why are you following me?” she questioned impatiently as she stopped in the middle of the sidewalk and turned to face him.

“I’m following you because I think you and I have some things to discuss,” he answered evenly. “In fact, we’re long overdue on having a chat, don’t you? It’s time we hash some things out between us.”

Automatically shaking her head, Sami backed up a step, wholly unprepared to go down that road with Ben. “Uh, I don’t think that’s a good idea, Ben. I think we said everything we had to say to each other three years ago, didn’t we?” she asked before turning and resuming her walk down the street.


Paradise Found TEaser Vixen

Second chances do exist even if it is several years later.  Sami is SO SO stubborn and I just love her so.  She did what she thought was right to let Ben be happy.  Ben is VERY alpha male and you can’t help but love him also.  I don’t necessarily love how he got her to talk to him but at the same time her stubbornness was not going to let things happen easily.
This is told in dual POV and yet most of it is really just the two of them talking, etc…  In a way I wish we had more interactions with others…but this really is a book about forgiveness, second chances, true love and fighting for what you want.  Second chances don’t come around every day and neither Ben nor Sami would have guessed it was possible either and yet their love never faded even when apart.


Sarah O’Rourke is actually TWO besties who live three states apart and write at all hours of the day and night! Born and raised in the Southern United States, they are overly attached to their one-click accounts, can’t make it through the day without copious doses of caffeine, and spend way too much time on the phone with each other.

Between them, they have four children and twenty-five-plus years of marriage. They hate empty chocolate wrappers and writer’s block, love to talk to readers . . . and oh, by the way, they write about strong, kick-ass women and hot alpha heroes!

Tap That by Jennifer Blackwood and RC Boldt

**Review at the bottom

Title: Tap That
Authors: Jennifer Blackwood & RC Boldt

Genre: Romantic Comedy

 Release Date: March 6, 2018

The beer’s not the only thing getting tapped.
I have a secret. It’ll get me fired if my boss ever finds out…which shouldn’t be a problem except for one thing: my coworker, Reid Morgan.
He’s cocky, aggravating, and that hot-as-sin mouth simultaneously makes me want to slap him and melt into the mattress.
Now that he’s discovered my secret, he’s doing everything in his power to take my job.
I have a problem: my pint-size spitfire of a coworker who’s primed to take my promotion.
She’s infuriating, sexy as hell, and I just can’t seem to keep my hands off her.
Now we’re both vying for the same position…and only one of us can come out on top.

Jennifer Blackwood
Jennifer is a USA Today bestselling author of contemporary
romance. She lives in Oregon with her husband, son, and poorly behaved black
lab puppy. When not chasing after her kiddo, you can find her binging on
episodes of Gilmore Girls and Supernatural, and locking herself in her office
to write.
RC Boldt is the wife of Mr. Boldt, a retired
Navy Chief, mother of Little Miss Boldt, and former teacher of many
students. She currently lives on the southeastern coast of North Carolina,
enjoys long walks on the beach, running, reading, people watching, and singing
karaoke. If you’re in the mood for some killer homemade mojitos, can’t recall
the lyrics to a particular 80’s song, or just need to hang around a
nonconformist who will do almost anything for a laugh, she’s your girl.








You know it is a good comedy when you are laughing on the very first page.  I love Callie so much and Reid I can love at times and others I want to punch him.  He becomes a jerk too often for me though, but I am glad that it wasn’t as easy to get Callie to forgive him.  This book was so easy to read, it was fun and light and kept you laughing and yet still had some good drama to keep you invested and interested.
This book is told in dual POV and it is so much fun.  I love their thoughts and their interactions with others.  Although I do think we get more with Reid and his friend then we do with Callie in that regard.  Overall, a very enjoyable book.

Break the Ice by Piper Rayne Blog Tour

**Review at the bottom

Break the Ice, an all-new standalone and the conclusion to the hilarious Bedroom Games series from bestselling authors Piper Rayne is LIVE!


The Winter Games are over, but the bedroom games are just beginning…

This is about the time I normally hang up my snowboard and chill for a while. Except this year. This year, I’m dealing with what fate dealt me at the Winter Games—nope, not gold. A broken leg.

Since I’m not close to my family, I head to my best friend, Skylar’s pad to recoup. Turns out having your gorgeous, single, sexy friend wait on you hand and foot can blur the lines between friendship and romance.

Which is exactly why I’ve decided to help her find a boyfriend.

Yeah, you heard me right. I’m going to help her comb through every dating app available until she finds the perfect man. What else could remind me of my place in her life more than watching her fall for someone else?

I can deal. I’m used to pushing through pain. I’m an Olympian after all.


“Sky.” I follow her down the hall and up the stairs. “You need…” I swallow down the bile burning my throat.

She turns around when she reaches her childhood bedroom door. The same room that has pictures of Ben on her corkboard from some dance way back when. The room that holds all her memories of a happy childhood filled with fun, laughter and love. Doesn’t she realize, she has so much?


“You need a date.”

Did that really just come out of my mouth?

“A date?”

I grab her hand and take her into my room, which is really her brother’s childhood room, and sit her down on the bed.

“Yeah, give me your phone.”

She digs it out of her pocket and places it in my palm.

I search the app store and select a dating app.



“What about the more traditional ones?” she asks, leaning over to look at my phone. Her hair tickles my neck, and the scent of her perfume makes my dick twitch in my pants.

“You need a beta, remember?”


I go through her selfies and select one that doesn’t show how truly gorgeous she is. It’s hard to find one though because Skylar doesn’t have any bad pictures.

“I’m not sure about this, Beck.”

I fill out her form for her while she remains silent. Once I’m done, I hand it back over to her and she stares at the screen for a long time.

Our thighs are pressed against one another and I’m fairly sure the electricity running through my body is buzzing through hers, but her gaze is still glued to her phone.

“Okay,” she says, still sounding reluctant.

“Perfect. Now, Terminator.”

She smiles and her lips brush my cheek. “Sorry, for being so needy.”

“It’s the hazard of having girl friends, I suppose.”


“Friend,” I clarify, standing up before my hands and lips listen to the instructions from my dick.

“You’ll help me pick someone out?” she asks.

“Of course.”

She walks out of my room, her gaze glued to her phone. I follow with my gaze glued to her ass.

About Piper

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?

We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon-holed into a specific type of story. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it!

All that, AND we thought it’d be a helluva lot more fun if we did this writing thing together!

What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes, quirky heroines that make us laugh, and lots of sexy times. Here’s hoping you do, too!

You can never go wrong with a Piper Rayne book and this one is no exception. An exceptional best friends to lovers romance. I felt like with the previous two books in the series you always knew there were feelings between Beckett and Skylar but you never really understood. (and while I said that I do feel this book can be a complete stand-alone).

Being on the same page is really Beckett and Skylar’s biggest issue and with the background/history you really do understand them both and why it has taken so long. But honestly it happened when it was meant to.

It is an overall quick read and while we get some heavier topics overall this is a fun read that will leave you with a huge smile on your face. Told in dual POV you really understand both of them and even get to know them through the interactions in the opposite POV. Amazing job getting into these characters heads and making us really feel and understand them.
