Well Played by J.S. Scott and Ruth Cardello

**Review at the bottom

 


Lauren:Graham is my brother’s best friend. He’s always been my
protector and my confidant because he accepts me the way I am—and not
many do. I can’t imagine not having him in my life.Our weekend
together was supposed to be a celebration. I graduated from college,
Graham got engaged and signed with a pro football team, and my brother
landed his dream job. It should have been the best time of our lives.

Except that the weekend started with me walking in on Graham’s fiancée going down on my brother.

I
complicated the situation by having sex with Graham after that, but I
wanted to comfort him and, damn, when I saw desire in his eyes—for me—I
couldn’t say no. I’ve wanted him for so long.

Now he doesn’t want to see me. He says he has a darker side he needs to protect me from.

Where do we go from here? Do I try to pretend to be his friend again or push him to open up to me and possibly lose him forever?

Graham

Sleeping
with one of my best friends was not exactly a brilliant idea. It made
things complicated, and I didn’t do anything that threw my life into
chaos. The fiancée her brother Jack, had stolen had been part of my
life plan, one more step I was taking to be somebody. Granted, I hadn’t
been in love with my intended bride, but I didn’t really know how to
love anybody.

I survived.

I pushed to achieve more.

I battled my way to the top of the heap in my pro football career..

I’m a total dick, and I don’t want Lauren to see the side of me that would trample over anybody to work my way up in the world.

Lauren
sees me as a hero, a title I’d never gain with anybody else in my life,
so I wanted to keep her sheltered from the hard realities of my life. I
wanted her to continue to think I was a nice guy when I was really just
the opposite.

We never should have crossed the line of going from friends to lovers.

There’s
too much Lauren doesn’t know about me, and I care enough about her that
I don’t want her to share my pain and the darkness that never sees
daylight inside me.

I want her, but she’s a woman I can never have. She’s too smart, too sweet, and way too good for a guy like me.

Unfortunately, pushing her away becomes much more difficult than I’d planned…

Coming Soon from Author Ruth Cardello – Insatiable Bachelor Available February 22nd 2018

A brand new series set in a whole new world. 

Dalton:
Women are a perk of my lifestyle. I work hard. I deserve to play
harder. But I didn’t get on the Forbes List of Rising Entrepreneurs by
getting lost in the baggage and disruption that comes with dating. I’ve
seen dozens of men fail when they fall in love. Pathetic.


That’s
why I chose the Bachelor Tower. It was designed by a genius, my hero:
the late, Garry F. Sinclair. He created an all-male haven for ambitious
men who want to live like kings and play by their own rules. Casino
nights, a fully equipped gym and lap pool, cigar and Scotch bar, and a
media room with screens the size of the average movie theater. The list
is endless. I easily network with men trying to launch their careers or
those at the top who want to stay hungry. The best part: the tower
attracts women, beautiful women who hang out in the lobby bar and vie
for an invite upstairs. Easy, like fishing in a barrel.


Until Sinclair dies and Penny Fuller moves into the apartment next to me because the new owner doesn’t share his vision.

Everyone
agrees Penny can’t stay. I don’t want to get involved, but she doesn’t
understand the lengths my fellow building mates will go to to get her
out. She’s not only irresistibly sexy and painfully optimistic, she’s
also in real danger.


Siding with her would be career suicide.

Betraying her was never my intention.

Review:

 

A sports romance, a best friend’s little sister and a friends to lover book all in one, yes please. And this did not disappoint.

Graham has had a hard life and just when everything was going perfectly, his fiancée cheats on him with his best friend. Of course Lauren is around and fills him in when he questions things and she is left to pick up the pieces. Betrayal is hard to deal with and to cope and I like that things were awkward with them and yet we see that the feelings were always hidden in the background. Lauren is stuck in the middle. And my only thing is that I wish Graham and Jack could have had more of a resolution as from the beginning of this book we see that Jack wasn’t really in love with Hope…he seemed to love what their relationship represented.

There is plenty of angst and just overall drama that honestly is very expected with the idea of this book and with both Lauren and Graham. We also get some funny things to lighten the mood and that doesn’t take away from the story at all. We also get to watch as these two friends slowly come to terms with their feelings and decide to move forward. Graham often drove me crazy but then you realize his past and him trying to shield Lauren from his darker side and you can understand him a little bit better. But honestly, I didn’t need as much of the background from his childhood, but that was probably just me.

This is told in dual POV and it moved seamlessly between chapters and the overall story had a nice flow. You can enjoy both characters, separately and together and you also get to watch as these two work their way to so much more.

Infraction by Rachel Van Dyken
Release Date: January 9th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

VanDyken-Infraction-23433-CV-FT-v5

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken proves that everyone scores to win. But off the field, a fumble can change the entire game.

Pro footballer Miller Quinton would do anything for his best friend and teammate—including “fake dating” his friend’s sister. What no one knows is that seven months ago in Vegas, Miller and Kinsey did a whole lot more than just kiss. Miller knows that this cheerleader is off-limits to him and any guy on the team. Still, he can’t stop himself.

Kinsey’s whole world is on the verge of crumbling. Her dad has cancer. Her overprotective brother is falling apart. Dating Miller may be a fake-out, but he’s the one guy who can make her forget about everything—including all the reasons she stayed away from football players. With each heated moment, Miller feels more like a safe place…even though he’s not safe at all.

Now temptation is testing every rule in the game of love. But how long can they go on playing when winning is a harder goal than either of them imagined?

Lucky Number Eleven by Adriana Locke

Title: Lucky Number Eleven

Author: Adriana Locke

Genre: Romantic Comedy/Sports Romance
Release Date: September 7, 2017

People say not to believe the things you read
in magazines, but you know what? Most things you’ve heard about me are probably
true.
I totally banged the reporter in the locker
room after the championship game last year.
Those pictures in Expose from last summer?
Those were not modified.
I’m also not really six-foot tall. (But let’s
keep that between us.)
Now, I know you’re wondering about that last
Expose headline—the one about me and my teammate (and ex-best friend) Finn
Miller’s sister, Layla James. That one is a little more complicated.
Here’s the thing: I’ve played football my
whole life. If there’s one thing I know, it’s how to adjust when the game
changes. And if there’s one thing I always do, it’s find a way to win.
Granted, the stakes are higher. The playbook
has changed. There’s more on the line than (another) MVP title. But guess what
hasn’t changed? Me. I’m still Branch “Lucky” Best and I’m not about to fumble
this one.
Grab a seat and a subscription to Expose. I’m
about to make some headlines. (Again.)
A sexy, swoon-filled standalone novel.

Excerpt
“One
question,” Poppy interjects, looking at Branch. “What position are you?”
“I
typically like the bottom so I can watch—oomph,” he says, getting another elbow
from Finn. “Wide receiver. Why?”
Looking at
Poppy, I can’t help but laugh as her eyes light up.
“You got a
problem with wide receivers?” Branch asks.
“You do,”
Finn interjects, giving me a narrowed glare. “They aren’t any better than
quarterbacks.”
Branch
looks from me, to Finn, and back to me. “Why do we not like quarterbacks?”
“My sister
was dating Callum Worthington.”
“No shit?”
His face puckers like he just bit into a lemon. “How in the hell did that
cocksucker end up with you?”
“He didn’t.
We’re not together anymore.”
Branch’s
eyes heat, the look causing my pulse to quicken. “I’m not a bit sorry to hear
that.”
“You better
forget you heard any of that,” Finn warns. “This is my sister, Branch. Not a
cheerleader or reporter or some chick from a dating app. Got it?”
“Finn,
relax,” I say, shoving a swallow past the lump in my throat. “I appreciate the
big brother spiel, but I can handle myself.”
“I know you
can,” he says, pulling his gaze away from Branch. “But you can’t handle him.”

Review

A best friend’s little sister book – CHECK
A sports romance – CHECK
A Cocky Hero – CHECK

This book has some of everything that I love in a book. Branch is a hot, cocky ball player and Layla is a feisty heroine. You can’t help but love the two of them as individuals. But what else this book has going for it is the side characters. The author is so good at making you want more of them as well and you can’t help but be drawn into every aspect of this book. Watching these characters grow throughout the book is one of the best things about it honestly. You love them both and just want them to be the best version of themselves, whether that means together or apart.

The writing flows nicely and really engages you from the very first page. There are no skipped details and you can really see yourself emerged into this world that the author has created and you want to know these characters.

Nothing makes me happier though in a book when the guy messes up and it isn’t an easy fix. Especially when that guy is super cocky and confident. And Branch messes up, and yet it fits the character and I love the fall out from it, and then watching him pick up the pieces and try to fix things. I love that Layla didn’t give him an easy way out.

I loved Branch and Layla from their first meeting, and despite Finn’s warnings, you can’t help who you are drawn to. You can feel their chemistry, as well as the hesitation (rightfully so), but sometimes things are just meant to be. I do wish Layla wouldn’t have been so quick to draw conclusions, but yet, isn’t that what we as humans do at times, draw our own ideas without finding out the truth first.

Poppy is that best friend we all wish we had. And I can’t help but love her and Finn and their interactions with both Branch and Layla. Again, you can’t help but love all of the supporting characters in this book.

Wicked Wish by Sawyer Bennett

**Review at the bottom

 

Jorinda Pearce thought she did everything right – graduated from college, married her long-time sweetheart, established a career. But what does she have to show for it now? A degree she doesn’t use, a job she hates, and an ex-husband that broke her heart.

Looking for a long overdue adventure, Jorie takes a walk on the wild side and attends a masquerade event at The Wicked Horse Vegas. It’s exactly the escape she’s looking for, and even better, she can explore anonymously. Drawn to the man masked in black leather with the body of a god, Jorie finds the greatest pleasures of her life at the hands of a stranger.

Walsh Brooks is the most sought after man in The Wicked Horse. Sex is nothing but a game to him and he’s the type that will always leave at the end of the night without looking back. Unfortunately for Walsh, there’s no way he can walk away from the mysterious green-eyed beauty behind the mask of sapphire feathers, because he knows exactly who she is.

Jorie is his best friend’s little sister and there’s not another woman in the world that’s more off limits.

Squaring my shoulders, I march into The Royale and head straight for the concierge desk. I haven’t been in this casino before. Hell, I haven’t been in hardly any of them. Sure, I’d only grown up about forty-five minutes away, but gambling and all-you-can-eat buffets held no interest to me.

From Micah bragging about his best friend over the years, I knew Walsh orchestrated the purchase of the land, then pulled together financing with two other partners to build this casino. It’s one of the most popular on the strip, boasting five-star dining, old-world elegance, and superior customer service. Again, all this from Micah, but honestly… I’m so proud of Walsh, too. We may have lost touch over the years, but I’ll never forget all the ways in which he acted as a big brother to me.

Ick.

Okay… that’s gross. Thinking of Walsh like a brother.

I scrub my mind clean of that thought and demand myself never to do that again.

Rather, I’ll never forget all the ways in which Walsh provided me friendship and support in my formative years.

Yes… much better.

“Can I help you?” a man behind the concierge desk asks with a genuine and friendly smile. Not snooty as I would expect in a fancy hotel, and I guess that goes to the superior customer service The Royale strives for.

“Yes… hi,” I say as I nervously tuck my hair behind my ears on both sides. “I need to see Mr. Brooks. How do I go about getting access to his apartment?”

Micah told me some time ago that Walsh lives here.

The concierge never loses his friendly smile, but a single eyebrow arches high at my temerity.

“Oh, gosh,” I stammer. “That came out stalkerish. Mr. Brooks… I mean, Walsh… and I are longtime friends. He used to babysit me.”

“Your name?” the man asks as he pulls up something on his computer.

“Jorie Pearce.”

After a moment of scanning, he looks up at me. “Your name isn’t on the approved list.”

“Well, he’s not exactly expecting me.”

“I’m sorry, Miss Pearce,” he says with true regret in his voice. “But our policy is strict. No one gets up to the private penthouse without their name on the list.”

I lean on the desk with one elbow and lower my voice. “Just out of curiosity… are there any women on that list?”

The eyebrow shoots up again.

“No, wait,” I say hastily as I hold my palms toward him in a silent plea to not process my last request either mentally or on the computer. “That’s totally stalkerish, and I didn’t mean that.”

“Miss Pearce,” the concierge says, now with a hint of annoyance. “Perhaps you’d like to leave a message? I can get it up to Mr. Brooks today and he can call you.”

“No, I need to see him now,” I tell him firmly. “And I swear it’s not to cook a rabbit in a pot on his stove. Can you please just call up to his apartment?”

“That’s not our policy—”

“Look,” I snap as I lean across the desk slightly. “I’m a lifelong friend of Walsh’s. My brother is his best friend. We lost touch for a few years, but we ran into each other last night. I really need to talk to him about something that happened last night, and I’m not leaving this hotel until you call up to his apartment.”

The eyebrow doesn’t arch but it does draw inward to meet its match on the other side as he considers what I just said.

“I swear to you,” and here I pause to look at his name tag, “Bentley. Please just call him. He won’t be mad.”

With a sigh, he relents and picks up the phone receiver, punching in a five-digit number. After a pause, he says, “Mr. Brooks… I’m very sorry to disturb you, sir, but there’s a Miss Jorie Pearce here to see you. She says she’s a longtime friend.”

I watch as Bentley listens, but I can’t gauge what’s being said as his face remains blank. Finally, he says, “Very good, sir.”

I take this to mean I’ll be getting an escort to the penthouse suite, but Bentley replaces the receiver and says, “I’m sorry, Miss Pearce. But Mr. Walsh told me to tell you he’s busy and can’t receive you right now.”

My eyes narrow at Bentley. “I don’t believe you. Call back and let me talk to him.”

“I assure you, I just talked to him and that’s what he said.”

“Call him back,” I order as I point to the phone.

“I can’t,” he says almost with a wail. “If I do, he’ll fire me.”

Okay, that hits home. I don’t want to get anyone in trouble, so I say, “Fine. Give me just a moment.”

I take a few steps away from the concierge desk and pull my iPhone out. I shoot off a quick text to Micah. What’s Walsh’s phone number?

I wait a few moments, but I know Micah is awake in San Francisco at this hour. His phone is always on, and he never ignores a text from me.

He responds with the number before I can even start to tap my foot with impatience, adding on, Why?

I hate the lie, but I write back, Came to Vegas for the day. Thought I’d see if he could meet up for lunch. Haven’t seen him in years.

Cool, he writes back. Tell him I said, “what’s up, douche?”

I roll my eyes as I text back, Real mature. Love ya. Later.

After I save the number to my contacts, I open a new text to Walsh. Let me up to see you or I’m going straight back to The Wicked Horse to satisfy some further curiosities I have.

I hit send and then walk back to the concierge desk. I merely lean one elbow on it and watch Bentley with a silent smile. The phone rings about ten seconds after that.

Bentley’s eyes fly to mine as he listens, and then says, “Yes, sir. Right away.”

When he replaces the receiver, he says, “I’m to show you to the penthouse elevator.”

“Thank you, Bentley,” I say brightly.

Review

I love a good best friend’s little sister book and this one did not disappoint. Jorie moves to Nevada to live with her best friend Elena after her husband kicked her out and told her she was terrible in bed. She ends up at a masquerade party at the Wicked Horse where she ends up with none other then her brother’s best friend Walsh. Of course when things started neither had any idea who the other was.

The author does a great job with this backstory of these two, no detail is left out. You can see their connection in present day as well as what really bonded them in the past. You can’t help but root for these two. And of course her brother Micah had what I would find a normal reaction to everything and I was waiting to get to that and see how that all played out.

This author really delivers with every single book she writes, I can not wait to see what comes next. Her books just draw you in and you feel like you know these characters and can feel exactly how they are feeling. Jorie and Walsh are no exception, and yet, at times you want to punch one of them. I also understand why it took Walsh longer the Jorie to get places, that seems very true to their characters, so I also loved that.

But if you like best friend’s little sister books with some erotica in them, this is definitely a must read.

It’s time.
Time to get a life.
Time to start over.
Time to move beyond the past.

The guys in the Single Dads Club would tell you it was time years ago, but until recently, the risk of hurting my little girl outweighed the benefit of getting a piece of ass.

Now that I have a tween daughter on my hands? It’s becoming more apparent with every poster hung on the wall, every fight over wearing make-up and every uncomfortable conversation about puberty, that at least one of us needs a female touch in our lives.

Jesus. I can’t even think the words ‘female touch’ without thinking of her.

Charlotte Rose. Charlie.

She’s everything I shouldn’t want, but someone needs to tell that to my damn libido because every time she’s around I have a constant case of blue balls.

There’s a list of reasons why I shouldn’t give into what I feel—she’s my best friend’s little sister, she’s seen me at my most vulnerable, and the biggest one—she’s the first person in eleven years who has the potential to break me.

Excerpt:

Snap a picture and caption it ‘Teenage boy in front of his first Playboy’ because that’s exactly how I feel right now and I’d bet that’s how I look.

Charlie stands in the doorway wearing a white bikini, her nipples hard and erect, begging to be touched. The first thing I notice is the way she doesn’t cover up, but opens the door wider, ushering me in with her free hand.

“I expected the pool guy.” Her voice changes pitch and I gather she’s as affected by this situation as I am. The only difference is, my arousal can’t be hidden.

“He’s out of town, so you got me.”

“And you can fix it?”

I stop and tilt my head her way. “Is that even a question?”

“Well,” she walks faster to catch up to me as I use a key to open up the one door that’s locked from guests. “Oh, I always wonder what’s behind these doors when I rent other people’s vacation homes.” She peeks her head over my shoulder and the scent of her perfume makes a beeline for my dick, making it twitch.

As he’s begging for an introduction, I squat to get away, but she doesn’t relent. Her tits are practically resting on my shoulder.

“Ever heard of personal space?” I remark, grabbing my tool set.

“This isn’t half as exciting as I thought it would be.” She finally moves back and I stand with the toolbox in my hands.

“Did you think there would be a dead body?”

She shrugs. “Porn maybe?”

“Why would there be porn?”

She purses her lips and looks up at the ceiling. It’s innocent and cute and I’m not sure I ever remember seeing her doing it before. “You know, the owner can’t keep it in their own house because they have a preteen daughter, so they keep their stash in the closet and watch it when there are no guests here.”

“Let me guess? I’m the guy with the preteen daughter.”

“You’re so smart. I see where Sydney gets it from.” She smiles, a mouthful of straight white teeth.

I nod and walk away. She follows.

“Do you need help?”

“Since I really have no idea what I’m fixing, I don’t know yet.” I open the screen door to the hot tub.

“It wouldn’t turn on.”

“That’s not a good sign.”

I open up the back and start working on it. The little I know about hot tubs might not be enough.

Charlie sits on the edge of the hot tub and puts her feet in, her purple polished toenails dipping in and out of the water.

“I think I deserve a discount if I can’t use the hot tub.”

I look up at her and she’s smirking.

“Funny.”

She’s quiet for a few minutes while I fiddle around trying to figure out the source of the problem.

“I’m curious, Garrett…” she pauses and I glance up at her. “How do my tits look in this bikini?”

Author Bio

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 outline. We wanted to give readers a story without them assuming how the story will flow. 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.

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 and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.

SB Review Graphic.jpg

How do I describe this awesome book.

Garrett, a single dad for the past 12 years…his wife had passed away. He is afraid to open his heart again so he never did. Charlie has had a thing for Garrett since she was younger. Garrett and her brother Vance were best friends growing up. Garrett did notice that Charlie has grown up though, but he is still afraid.

I love that this book includes some characters from their other series, primarily Lennon and Jasper, as well as the usual gang from the other two books in this series, but I do believe this can easily be read as a standalone.

This is a best friends little sister, single dad book, how can you possibly go wrong. This was by far my favorite of the single dad series, I love getting to see more about Garrett, who was always so quiet and we never really knew in the other books. His daughter Sydney is now 12, and I love their relationship and I feel that Piper and Rayne really captured the tween girl aspect and even the dad/daughter relationship. You can’t help but laugh out loud at parts and also really feel for these characters throughout this book.
