Blurb
I’m that
guy.
Camilla Landry rustles against me, the silky fabric of her overpriced lingerie
slipping along my bruised rib. The porcelain perfection of her skin is even
more innocent against the colorful ink dotting my own. It’s demure meets damage,
pampered meets punctured.So, yeah, it’s obvious I’m that guy. Dominic Hughes. Her attempt at rebellion.
Her bid to see what the other side of the tracks feel like. I’m okay with being
used because, from where I’m sitting, the other side of the tracks have never
looked so good.

Excerpt
He’s
standing in the doorway, one hand on the sweatpants that hang just below his chiseled
hips and the other leans on the frame. The tattoos that mark his flesh are
vivid against his bare skin, making the blues of his eyes shine.
He flashes
a lopsided smile my way. “Took you long enough.”
“I don’t
drive like a bat out of hell,” I laugh, stepping past him. “Did you shower
already?”
“Yeah. I
smelled like gym floors.”             
“As long as
you don’t smell like gym whores,” I say, setting the bags on the table in the
kitchen.
His laugh
is contagious and I feel myself smiling. A set of arms cage me in from behind,
grasping the table on both sides of me. My skin breaks out in a shiver as his
lips find the sensitive spot behind my ear.
His face
buries in the crook of my neck and he takes a long, leisurely breath. “You
smell so good.”
“Keep doing
that,” I say, relaxing my head onto his chest.
“What?”
“Talking
with your mouth against me.”
“You like
this?” he asks all breathily so that each word whispers across my skin.
My eyes
fall closed as I relish in this moment of nothing but him. “No, I love this.”
“Can I tell
you a little secret?”
“As long as
you keep talking, you can tell me whatever you want.”
He
chuckles, dotting kisses up and down my neck. “I love this too, feeling your
body give up the fight of the day and let me take over.” He turns me in his
arms so I’m facing him. “I love that you trust me enough to let your shoulders
sink out of that perfect posture you walk around with.”
As he
reaches up and undoes the elastic in my hair, I watch his features soften. He
moves carefully, unwrapping the tie from the twisted mess in my locks, careful
not to pull.
“There,” he
says, cupping the back of my head through my long tresses, “that’s better.”
“You don’t
like my hair up?”
“Not like
you had it. You look to lunching-y,” he says, wrinkling his nose.
“Lunching-y?”
“Yes,” he
grins.
“You are
too cute.”
“You are
too fucking sexy.”
Reaching
up, I swipe the pad of my thumb over the cut above his eye. He flinches, but
just for a second. “What happened?”
“Bond’s
right hand.”
“I hate
him.”
“So do I,”
he snickers.
“Let’s get
some ice for it.”
He leans
in, his brows tugging together. “Let’s not.” His eyes hood as he takes me in,
his tongue darting out and wetting his lips. My knees weaken, my body humming
with delight at his reaction.
“I want to
take care of you,” I whisper, although that’s really on the backburner now.
“Let me baby you.”
Instead, he
lifts me up and places me on the table. My stomach clenches as he positions
himself between my thighs, my sundress curling at my waist. I ring my legs
around him, pulling him so close that the soft cotton of his sweatpants rubs
against my opening.
He looks
down. “You aren’t wearing panties.”

Review

How hard it had to be growing up for Camilla and her twin sister with 4 older, VERY PROTECTIVE, older brothers. But this book gets her to be an independent woman and learn to stand up for herself. She has always gone along with what everyone else wanted, never wanting to rock the boat, but along came the bad boy Dominic, and he turned her entire world upside down in a way she never thought he could.

The good girl and the bad boy but yet he makes her want to do what makes her happy, finding charity work or anything that she can really be herself doing. Problem is, Dom never thinks he is good enough for her, he is from the wrong side of town and no way she could stay happy with him and with his past. Camilla is very trusting, understand and downright awesome.

I love the interactions with her family, I just love them and am sad to see this family’s books come to and end. Dom and his brother and nephew also are a great story. Cam and Dom’s brother have a nice dynamic also. While some slight drama outside of him not thinking he was good enough it is a pretty sweet story.

Dominic is a fighter, and eventually Cam realizes she needs to support him instead of trying to get him to quit. The author has really done a great job of showing you how much they really make the other happy, and that at the end of the day, that is all you can ask for. The Landry family has to learn to accept someone that doesn’t typically fit into their mold, and Dominic proves how much he cares for Cam time and time again.

Once you start this book you won’t be able to put it down. You are sucked into this world of Cam and Dom and you just want to see that they get to have their happily ever after.

Single dad and star defenseman Matt LaRue lives for his kids and hockey. He’s had one failed marriage and doesn’t have any interest in going through that hell again. As conservative as they come, he can’t explain his unexplainable attraction to a free spirited female who changes hair color more often than his boys create new excuses not to do their homework.

Violet Strider is fleeing the past. She has a new start, new identity, and is hiding a big secret. Matt and Vi are a classic case of opposites attract, but neither expects the attraction to extend beyond a few hot trysts, especially Vi. Only her heart isn’t listening, and her head is following her heart down a path of no return. As Vi grows closer to Matt and his boys, she fears her secret could rip them apart.

Relationships are built on trust, and Vi’s house of cards is about to take a tumble. Can Vi confront her past and finally put it behind her, while earning Matt’s forgiveness?

WES

I love women and women love me.
It’s not my fault I’m irresistible. Okay, I may be a little cocky too.
All I have to do is post a picture of myself shirtless with my cat, Snickers, and the women flock to me.
It probably helps that I’m good with my bat and balls.

A selfie, a smile, and I have them in bed—but never in a relationship.
Until Carrie entered the game.
She may not know it, but she owns me. And I’m not letting her go.

CARRIE

I’m a professional. No, not THAT kind of professional.
I’m an orthopedic physician for the St. Pete Mantas and my job is everything.
I love the game and I love my players … but I never fall *in* love with any of them.
Especially not players like Wes. Especially Wes.

He thinks life is one big game.
One sexy, romantic, and sometimes sweet, game that’s left me confused and little bit worried…
*I may have actually fallen for the ultimate player.*

I’ll have to beat him at his own game if I have any shot at walking away with my heart intact.

About the Author:

Former archaeologist Alexis Anne (who also writes romantic suspense as Alexis Sykes) has worked as an oral historian, GIS specialist, field archaeologist, college professor, and small business owner, before deciding that working from home and writing books was a lot more satisfying. She writes steamy, sexy romance with one half of her brain and romantic suspense, action adventure, and children’s books with the other half.

Growing up she traipsed through the islands of the Gulf Coast, camped in the Everglades, dove the Keys, and generally felt more at home spending her days outdoors with a good book. She currently lives in a home filled with wild men (otherwise known as her extremely extroverted husband, The Sexy Editor, and their two kids), a husky, and a superhero guinea pig.

REVIEW:

3.5 stars

While I love a good sports romance, in that aspect this book didn’t disappoint but I just couldn’t really connect with Carrie. I loved that she was independent, smart, and sassy but I felt like while she didn’t want to just get a divorce she wasn’t trying either. I understand her issues/past or whatever but she wouldn’t give Wes even an inch, so I felt myself getting frustrated.

Wes on the other hand was great fun. He was not what people imagined and he didn’t even like the rumors and stereotypes about him. He is a guy every woman would want as he shows us so much more then the good looks, etc. He really wanted it to work with Carrie and he was willing to prove it to her.

But I loved the idea of them getting married in Vegas while drunk, it added a nice aspect to the story. And how he was super happy about it.

This was the first book in the series I read, and while it would have been nice to get the background fully of the “couples” I didn’t feel lost while reading so this is easily a stand alone book.

 

 

 

The Catch By K. Bromberg

**Review at the bottom

After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.

Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.

But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.

With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.

He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.

Amazon | iBooks | B&N | Kobo | Paperback

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.

Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.

So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.

And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play.

But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?

AMAZON | iBooks | B&N | Kobo | Paperback

HeadShot ColorNew York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow.

Since publishing her first book in 2013, K. has sold over one million copies of her books and has landed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists over twenty-five times.

In April, she’ll release The Player, the first in a two-book sports romance series (The Catch, book 2, will be released late June), with many more already outlined and ready to be written.

REVIEW:

This book has SO MANY EMOTIONS. I don’t even know where to begin. Secrets come out, lessons are learned and we see Easton and Scout struggle and we see their strength as a couple. It was nice to see that this book had Scout fighting for their relationship. Easton was a jerk at times, but man did he have A LOT going on in this book and I really felt for him.

I loved all the twists and turns that happened throughout this book, most of while I did not see coming. But I loved how Ms. Bromberg dealt with them and brought them to the forefront.

This book is about more then just a love between Scout and Easton, it is about love within a family, team, friends, it is about selfishness, selflessness, following your own dreams, realizing your dreams and so much more. While there are lots of heavy parts this book also has sweet moments in it as well, and by the end I was a crying mess. Ms. Bromberg has a way with writing that really draws you in. And this book is no exception.

Review:

 

3.5 stars

This would be a higher rated read if we didn’t have the Daddy, little girl lines in there during sexual things, that is a major turn off for me in a book. But otherwise I really enjoyed this book.

I love sports books so overall this was no exception. Will had his heart broken 5 years ago, and yet, he had a secret crush on Jordan…Jordan has held feelings for Will since she first met him. One dare later and Jordan and Will admit there is something between them, and sparks fly.

With some sports books we don’t actually get the “sports” but this one we do, we read often about practice or games, and that is always an added bonus to me. But is a playoff beard a real thing? It should be! lol

Overall it was a fun quick read.
