R E V I E W ➠ The Nanny and the Beefcake by Krista Sandor


(Nanny Love Match #3)


BLURB

The world knows Erasmus Cress as a British boxing champion and a single dad, but what they don’t know is that he’s also an O thief. Yep, that O. The OMG, don’t stop, please, don’t stop, O.
The infuriating beefcake rendered yoga instructor Libby Lamb an off-balance O-deprived mess with one arrogant glance, which turns out to be an occupational hazard when her job is to remain calm, cool, and collected.
She never expected to become the boxer’s nanny, but she’s got bills to pay and brothers to support. Not to mention, the beefcake’s ripped physique might be the key to reclaiming her O and restoring her inner peace.
Here’s the deal. She’s out of options, and so is he.
He’s training for the fight of his life, and he needs someone to care for his son.
He says he doesn’t do relationships. But when their eyes meet, and the gloves come off, there’s no denying his yang is hot for her yin.
They clash at every turn, but Erasmus soon learns that the fight that matters the most might not be the one in the boxing ring. When it’s all on the line, the true battle will be the fight for Libby’s heart.

RELEASE DATE: FEBRUARY 24, 2022



Not my first read by the author and I have read the previous books in the series. This one I was excited about and it’s a big boy! In all honestly I don’t think it needed a couple of scenes in the book, they were slow for me so it dragged a bit. Other than that there is a lot of action and scenes happening here, lot’s of side characters and life happening. It’s part for me where the ‘romance’ got lost and I was clinging to that little bit when it was between the H&H. It was still enjoyable to read, took me a couple of full days to read & am looking forward to the next one.

This is a heavy rom-com mixed with enemy-to, friends-to, single dad, alpha hero and very expressive out there heroine. I enjoyed the hero & heroine, each in it’s own. I had a few dislikes to the heroine only because she was heavy on the chi and the yoga, it went a little too much into detail for me on that. Laughed out loud many times in the book. The hero is a boxer who is in need of a nanny, has a chip on his shoulder and is a big man with an even bigger heart. They are paired very well, also the hero’s little son is the sweetest and just everything flowed so well. Even if the romance was missing the sizzle was there and worth the wait! I can’t wait for more in this series and hope to go din my next lifetime I get to have this Hero in real life please. Krista make it happen please & thank you!

R E V I E W ➠ A Chance for Us by Corinne Michaels


(Willow Creek Valley #4)


BLURB

New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels returns to the Willow Creek Valley Series in this stunning small town/fake relationship romance.

Oliver Parkerson has sworn off love. Not because he doesn’t believe in it, but because he loved a girl once who broke his heart when he was ready to propose. After failing miserably, he is ready to focus on his work. As part-owner of the Firefly Resort, he’s in charge of large events. His college friend, Maren, needs a place for her destination wedding and Oliver offers the resort. When Maren’s fiancé jilts her, will Oliver have a chance to save the day or will everything fall apart?

RELEASE DATE: February 8, 2022



Not my first read by Corinne and not my last. I have also read all the other books in this series and am sad that this one is the last one.

First of i want to get a couple things off my chest first. 1. don’t let Corinne fool you, this is a still very emotional book, i baked my eyes out 2. there was a slight huge dislike to me in the book, only because it just felt really awkward. i don’t like the being friends with the ex’s especially when it was not a bad parting. that’s all I’m saying. okay, now to move on to my review.

I honestly predicted a lot of it but it was still fun to watch it all unfold. Fake-Marriage tropes are a fav of mine so I was excited. The H&H actually know each other and are friends. When the heroine is in a bind, the Hero truly steps up…after he says No. What seems like a good idea and a good cause, really just complicates everything. What do you do when you start falling for your fake spouse? Run with it, and not did they. I really liked when they both let go and just be, because their chemistry is beautiful. I fell head off heels in love with both of them once they let each other in a little. They may have been doing things back-ass-wards but it was the best backwards that could have ended. You will cry in this, this hit home for me a little more & it was hard not to ball my eyes out. It’s funny, sweet, romantic and heartfelt! A true Corinne book!

R E V I E W ➠ Tripped by Love by LJ Evans




BLURB

He’s a broody bodyguard with secrets he can’t share.
She’s a busy single mom with a restaurant to run.
They’re just friends until a little white lie changes everything.

Marco Hernandez is the somber trainer here only to bend my body into shape, but when the perfectly sculpted man holds my son in his arms and smiles, I’m a goner. Weak legs. Pounding veins. Too bad as my brother’s bodyguard, he’ll never look at me the way I crave. Too bad I don’t have the time between the café and my baby boy to persuade him otherwise.
Cassidy O’Neil has looked like an angel from the moment I met her…an angel I can’t touch. Not only because she’s my boss’s sister but because I’m still trying to redeem myself for the sins of my past. The tantalizing mirage of “family” she represents will remain just that―a dream-like apparition.
Until her ex returns trying to claim the son he never wanted, and I’m the one who shows him the door. The lie that falls from my lips while trying to protect her threatens the tenacious balance we’ve established.
Once it’s Cassidy’s heart on the line, how will I defend her? Especially if I’m the one putting it at risk.

Inspired by Ingrid Andress’s “We’re Not Friends,” this achingly tender, slow-burn, small-town romance from award-winning author LJ Evans has loveable characters, deep emotions, and a windy path to creating a family.

RELEASE DATE: JANUARY 12, 2022



Not new to me author. I have read a few other books by her and enjoyed them. I was excited to get this one, wanted to see how this relationship would play out them being more of friends than.

Hero is broken. He is the kindest man, protecting everyone and helping when he can. The heroine is the sweetest and well has wanted the hero for a very long time but never thought the same feelings would be coming from him. This is a very slow burn just to warn you, it’s sweet, homey feel, fun, laughter, broken souls and amazing side characters that really bring in the story. AAAAAND the hero calls the heroine Angel (yes i know a lot of hero’s do) but this is too sweet and you’ll see why. This is a longer read and I am not going to be giving out a lot because I could go on and go for pages about this. Imagine wanting someone but only to sabotage yourself when getting close to what you want. It’s a complicated story and I’d say that you can totally read this as a standalone. Be ware you’ll get hooked and then want to go back and read all of the author’s other books! There is a lot of feelings and heart in this story not just between H&H, but just a feeling of being part of a world. The author does a great job bringing you in and describing the scenes so they are playing like a movie in your head. Thank you to the author for providing me with a ARC and as always I keep my review’s honest. I look forward to reading more by you!

R E V I E W ➠ Beyond the Play by Kaylee Ryan


(Out of Reach #3)


BLURB

Parker
Of all the hot guys in the club, of course I find myself tangled up with a baseball player. Our chemistry is out of the park, igniting as his athletic body moves next to mine.
I know exactly who he is, but the infamous Holden Bailey has no idea who I am, or my connection to the team. I prefer it that way. I give in to one dance with Holden and send him home alone.
He can have any woman he wants, but for some reason, he wants me. His pursuit is relentless. He wrote the playbook on being a player, though. Giving in could cost me my heart.
Holden
I thought getting traded to the Blaze was life changing, but it’s nothing compared to meeting Parker Monroe. From the moment she bumps into me on the crowded dance floor, I can’t tear my eyes away.
She’s gorgeous, intelligent, and definitely not interested. At least not in the player the media portrays me to be. I need to convince her that with her, I’m authentic, and what we have is the real thing. Game on.
When the truth gets twisted, it looks like I’m playing her. But she has it all wrong. The way I feel about Parker is beyond the play. She’s my end game. 

RELEASE DATE: January 4, 2022



Not a new author to me. In fact she is a one-click author for me. I have been waiting like everyone else hoping she’d give us more since Book #1 in this series when it wasn’t a series yet. To say this one was sweet GAH so so sweet, you can say it was a SWEET CHASE!

Holden Bailey has just been traded. Not that he was complaining too much but he was leaving behind what he knew. He then goes out and sees the most sexiest woman that does something to him which hasn’t happened in a very long time. Only that woman, she knows exactly who Holden Bailey is, the only problem is he has no idea who she is. He finds out in the best ways possible and now it becomes an issue. Maybe not one where the league would mind due to all the circumstances but definitely the outlook Parker has on Holden really messes with his need to have her. And not just for one night.

This is such a fun and sweet but VERY SLOW BURN story that will have you SWOON at the end.

R E V I E W ➠ Hold Me Forever by Layla Hagen




BLURB

As the hockey league’s star goalie, I live by three simple principles:
1. Keep a pristine image.
2. Work hard on the ice.
3. Don’t piss off the bosses…too much.

I was killing it until a mishap tarnished my image. Now, management has me cleaning up my reputation and coaching a bunch of kids. And damn, those little punks are growing on me, and so is the program coordinator, Kendra.
I’m hellbent on proving myself, but my attraction to Kendra takes me by complete surprise. Her defenses are up, but I like a good challenge.
Management’s directives are clear: “Kendra is off-limits.”
But there’s a reason I’m the best. I won’t let anyone stand in the way of what I want.

RELEASE DATE: Jan 18, 2022



Not new to me author but one where I have given it many tries and I just could not get into the writing style. I really love sports romances and wanted to give this a try as well. I am still the same on not being able to connect with the writing style but that’s just my personal preference. I did enjoy the cute story and their connection.

The hero is a hockey player nursing an injury. A passionate one at that, he loves to help and one of his things is volunteering with children. That is where he meets the heroine, she is a volunteer coordinator and they pretty much hit it off from the beginning. Their chemistry was there and at times it was fun and at times it was very hot and heavy. Both of them complimented each other and I also enjoyed the side characters and family dynamic.

R E V I E W ➠ Only One Mistake by Natasha Madison


(Only One #6)


BLURB

From the Something So Series comes
Michael Horton
Being traded after fighting with your coach on air isn’t exactly a good look.
With one mistake under my belt, I knew I needed to focus on the game, and nothing else.
But everything changed when I went to pick up my nieces and came face to face with my very pregnant one-night stand from six months ago.
Jillian
Two pink lines changed all my plans.
So did the guy I had a one-night stand with, a man who made me laugh and smile, a guy who I called to share my unexpected news with only to find out his number was no longer in service.
Once more let down by the opposite sex I figured I was doing this on my own.
Then one day I was staring into the eyes of the man I hated, the father of my baby.
All it took is only one mistake to change everything

RELEASE DATE: JANUARY 4, 2022



Just when I can say that the last one was my favorite in this series Natasha gives us this and now THIS is my favorite. Both the hero and heroine were out of the norm for me to love but because of their big hearts, I fell in love with both of them individually and together.
When Hero finds himself traded, moved to a new city & with no food in fridge in his new condo…he goes out to seek at least one thing he can control food. The heroine finally said yes to a blind date, after a very long time and in the end found herself dreaming of the man that recently walked in who is hotter than sin but NOT her blind date. The gods were in both their favor that day and night, after they spend the best and sexiest night of each of their lives together, fast forward to a few months. That’s where I am leaving the review because, the actions of one night will give you one of the sweetest with a lot of fun and most romantic story.

R E V I E W ➠ Shelter by Kristen Proby




BLURB

Remi Carter has survived her fifteen minutes of fame and is putting LA in her rearview mirror. As a former reality show contestant, she’s trading staged expeditions and faked wilderness tours for real adventures. Only one fluke storm in Glacier National Park has her stranded with a handsome man, and adventure takes on a whole new meaning.
Seth King is as rugged and sexy as he is annoyed to be trapped with Remi. Probably because she ghosted him at the local bar not three days ago. But she’s got her reasons for ditching him, and twenty-four hours in an abandoned Montana cabin with the wildlife biologist isn’t nearly enough time to explain.
As tempting as he is by firelight, she’s been burned too many times.
Except one day together and suddenly her travel van doesn’t hold as much appeal. The open road feels lonely. Remi’s about to learn that shelter is more than a safe place to weather a storm.
Shelter might just be the man himself. If he can give her a reason to stay.

RELEASE DATE: December 14, 2021



Not my first read by the author and I have read Book 1 as well as all the interconnected books in this! I was sooooo excited for this one! *happy sigh* The King Family oh how I’ve missed them!

Seth King has a past that no child should ever go through. Coming from that and then coming out at the end, he has a great life now. A career, the farm, his family and friends…then in comes Remi at the local bar. Seth is so drawn to her, but she ends up ditching him. But for good reason. Forward a few days and he finds himself trapped with the heroine in a cabin, all due to her NOT listening to him in the first place. Their one day there is where you fall in love with them together! I think I just loved their hearts, together and alone, they both have over come so much and still they are willing to at least try and put themselves out there. Granted the heroine was a little harder because she is still living her trauma.

The hero and heroine both bring the best out of each other, and together SO SWEET! *SWOON SWOON SWOON SWOON* on the hero too! This is so real, romantic, adventurous, fun and sexy! A MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Mine to Keep by Kennedy L. Mitchell


(Protection #4)


BLURB

An unlikely friendship, a stalking ex, and a serial killer on the loose.
FBI profiler Charlie Bekham prides himself on three unique talents: hacking any database, making women swoon with a cocky smirk, and letting no one see the desperate man buried deep. When a string of murders in Louisville, KY, requires extra help, he’s forced to partner with the brilliant yet shy Special Agent Rhyan Riggs to hunt the killer. Long nights of working the case fan the growing attraction between them, making Charlie question if “just friends” is enough.
Special Agent Rhyan Riggs is running from her past—a narcissistic ex, to be exact. Determined to move on from the terrible breakup, she focuses solely on her career… until him. Special Agent Charlie Bekham. Covered in tattoos, cocky as hell, and bad-boy hot, he’s exactly the type she should avoid at all costs but can’t seem to stay away from.
With more victims and at a dead end, Rhyan does the unthinkable—she puts herself in the killer’s sights. When the killer takes the bait and disappears with the woman Charlie’s fallen for, can he piece together the remaining clues before Rhyan becomes the next body found?

Mine to Keep is the fourth book in the interconnected standalone Protection Series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but because of character crossover, reading from book 1, Mine to Protect, is suggested. Due to foul language, discussion of emotional abuse, mention of suicide, and detailed intimate scenes, this book is recommended for readers 18+.

RELEASE DATE: December 13, 2021



Not my first read by the author, and I have read the previous books in this series.

Special Agent Rhyan Riggs is a very strong heroine that looks at herself a lot harder than needed to. She is definitely learning on how to forgive herself and love herself more. That’s my favorite part about all this, aside form the fact that the hero is SWOONY over the top in the best way and is a patient man when it comes to our heroine. They really seem different but are very much alike and fit so well together! I think what I loved is how the hero loved the heroine for all her quirks.

I am not a fan of work-romance anymore, I think a heavy doze of it it gets a little too much for me. This is a heavy doze of action and suspense, and as much as I love it from this author, it’s been a personal struggle to keep up with that trope type. This has nothing to do with the writing because the author is AMAZING at suspense. That said, I enjoyed the connection these two characters made, the road to it, and all the in between like the banter and funny you get. I won’t get too much into it because it involved the side characters (which by the way I also enjoyed very much).

R E V I E W ➠ Same Ol’ Situation by Lacey Balck


(Burgers and Brew Crue #3)


BLURB

Isaac
 I’m about as straight-laced and by the book as they come. They call me Numbers, the man in the office of Burgers and Brew, the restaurant and bar I co-own with my friends. Routine and spreadsheets, that’s how I spend my day. I’m a creature of habit, from the designer clothes to the same girlfriend, I crave the pattern I’ve become dependent on.
 Until said girlfriend breaks up with me for the umpteenth time, and I find refuge in a woman who is my exact opposite.
 I’m intrigued and completely out of my element, yet that doesn’t stop me from spending time with her. Even if I consider her off-limits, something about her calls to me.
 The problem is I just might lose a friend because of it.
 BJ
 Most of the time, I would never look twice at Isaac Thompson. He’s all suits, ties, and expensive dress shoes, and I’m…well, not. My time is spent at the tattoo studio I work at, day and night, designing badass ink for clients who want the best. I have no room in my life for a relationship, nor do I care for the messes they always create.
 Until Isaac finds me stranded on the road, and I end up inviting him inside.
 Now, I can’t stop thinking about him. He’s so different from any man I’ve ever known, which is why we decide to keep it casual and fun.
 Let’s just hope I can keep feelings out of the arrangement, so I don’t get burned.

RELEASE DATE: December 7, 2021



Not my first read by the author, she is part of my one-click author and I sadly have to say that this is maybe the 2nd ever book I’ve read by her that I did not connect with and extremely like. I think it had a lot to do with the fact that the hero just had come off a on-off relationship and the heroine’s boss was her ex and they were still so very close. So I was not able to connect to the connection between them. It was hot for sure and some parts I loved and swooned but it just did not cut it for me. And that’s okay we all have our own likes, so this is my personal preference, I would still recommend it for sure, I love this series!

These two couldn’t be more opposite. We have the hero who is straight laced and proper, the heroine who is wild and free, that’s the best way I can describe her. She is full of life and tattoos. She works at the tattoo parlor and the hero is part owner of her brother’s bar/brewery they all own. Their chemistry was very much there but their actions made me lose their connection while reading. That said, these two have a fling and keep it that way until one or the other gets too serious. The ex-gf of hero plays a part in this, as well as the heroine’s boss who’s her ex-bf. Very fun, wild and exciting, lot’s pf steamy scenes and sweet moments.

R E V I E W ➠ She’s The One by Kelly Elliott




BLURB

The day I first laid eyes on Abby Boyer, I knew she was the one. The girl I would marry and spend the rest of my life with, and I vowed to do everything I could to make her happy.
There was just one problem, I couldn’t make her happy during one of the darkest moments of our marriage. No matter how hard I tried, my love for her wasn’t enough to make her stay.
I’ve spent the last two years of my life trying to forget how much I still loved her.
Wouldn’t you know it, now that I finally managed to move on, Abby shows back up in Boggy Creek. Out of the blue. Here to stay.
They say time heals all wounds—well, two years wasn’t enough time to cover up the scars of our broken past because I still feel the pain like it was yesterday. My wounds are still healing, and not even my love for Abby can fix us…but will that love allow me to forgive her and finally move on?

RELEASE DATE: November 30, 2021



Not my first read by the author and I have read the previous series books too! This one I was thankfully pre-warned by Kelly because she knows me too well and knows my dislikes so I VERY MUCH appreciated that. That said I did truly wanted to straggle BISHOP.

This one took me by surprise to be honest, and in a good way that is. This second-chance romance really is truly about the Hero and Heroine and even thought I was expecting something at the turns, it was mainly a calmer story if you will. Still packed with action and the banter and chemistry, sneaky chemistry…but more calmer. What’s heartbreaking is the heroine, she puts herself back out there and wants to get back what she lost, she is older now, more smart and more in control….but yet she still can’t control one thing: fate. Once I got past when I wanted to kill Bishop that one time, I cried, laughed and swooned! I can truly say that this is one of my favorites in the series. Expect to have all your emotions brought out, the chemistry, the feel between H&H is unreal I don’t even know how to put it into words, but for all the heart break and hurt the after the storm was beautiful!

R E V I E W ➠ Ignite by Melanie Harlow


(Cloverleigh Farms #6)


BLURB

My new neighbor is a firefighter—and a scorching hot single dad—but I swear I didn’t set off that smoke alarm on purpose.
(And I was beyond mortified when he rushed in and saw me naked.)
Nothing happened, of course—because I, Winnie MacAllister, romance junkie and owner of a constantly broken heart, have sworn off men for one solid year.
Even protective men with chiseled jaws, bulging biceps, and deep brown eyes that make my breath come faster. Even former SEALs with broad chests and strong hands that make my skin sizzle. Even gorgeous, grumpy guys who have their hands full raising two adorable little girls and claim they don’t believe in love.
Until Dex kisses me one night, and I drop all my defenses.
(Also my underwear.)
He says he’s not gentle, and he’s right. He says I should take the dream job I’m offered in another state, and he’s right. He says he’s too old for me and could never be the man I deserve.
He’s wrong.
Dex and I might be twelve years apart, but the fire between us is the kind that will never burn out.
How can I convince him to give happily-ever-after with me a chance?

RELEASE DATE: November 22, 2021


Damn, he was handsome. My heart was still fluttering.
“It’s fine,” I told myself.
“It’s find that my new next door neighbor is a hot firefighter and single dad with muscles for days and dark, broody eyes. It’s fine, because I am the boss of my feelings.



Not a new to me author, I also have read all the books in this series. Two things first off: my idiot self did not realize this will be Book #1’s daughter (the hero’s) and when I figured it back out again I about screamed of excitement. And the second thing to get out of the way is that even though I absolutely loved this book I really really really think that the hero did not GROVEL enough. I said what I said!

Lets start with the heroine Winnie like the Poo 😉 she is a sweetheart! Her personality is addictive and her smile and laugh will make you want to too. She is someone who is in love with love. Hopeless romantic through and through, until enough is enough and she makes a bet with her sister for a good reason. She is rehabilitating herself from love. Then Dex the single-dad firefighter ex-marine moves in next door and not only is he hot in a tight shirt but his two daughters are what dream kids are made of. The way he is with them will have you melt your heart even in his grumpy grumpy self! This is YES a age-gap duhh I wouldn’t expect anything else but the second gen to have at least a repeat. In this case if you are starting with this book in the series DON’T! Stop and go back to book #1 because every single one of these books is CAPTIVATING! That said back to the story, so Dex moves in next door and what does a firefighter do when an alarm goes off? Come to the rescue…in this case right time wrong place because Winnie is just getting out of the steamy hot shower and ends up well the neighbors end up seeing a little more than any of them wanted, and one of them didn’t mind of course. This story has so much fun, laughter, heart, romance and action. It’s almost a history repeats itself that means you get a glimpse of Frannie and Mack. I will say that this could have been a 5 plus read for me but I just couldn’t let go that the hero really didn’t grovel enough, in my head that is but over-all the story was sweet and fun!

RELEASE DATE: NOVEMBER 16, 2021


NEW to me authors. I got to be honest as always and say that I do not remember why I requested for this ARC, I must have been in the mood but I am glad because I really enjoyed these two sweet short stories. The other things that I kind of messed up on is the fact that I did not read any of these author’s original books I THINK I am not sure though if these are on it’s own stories or from previous characters, so I was wondering the whole time about that.

4 STARS -> WEDDING WONDERLAND by Samantha Chase: This one was a very themed and super cute story about the Hero & Heroine and the time of the wedding. The groom has some strong words on waiting and the bride wants to make her groom happy but also is stressed about planning a wedding so soon. What follows is a fun adventure on two souls that are meant to be and all the obstacles they have to overcome to get their official happily every after.

5 STARS -> DESTINED FOR FOREVER by Stefanie London now this one took my attention from the start, I liked the author’s writing style and everything. The characters were fun to read and complex enough to keep my attention. The story line is a common one because the heroine just got broken up with and is going to her cousins wedding and the hero is her long time from childhood crush attending the same wedding, they make a pack during the flight and what follows is a sweet, snowy, Christmas feel romance filled with cute scenes, romance, laughter, heartache, realness and THE FIRST KISS *swoon*

His demons are taunting him.
Mason has done his best to bury the past by achieving more than he ever thought possible. But even with all of his success, his life feels empty.
When tragedy strikes, Anna is left fighting to protect the only family she has left. And Mason will do anything to keep her and her loved ones safe—even if that means the ring of wedding bells.
But as a new spark ignites between them, someone is watching.
And they’ll do whatever it takes to snuff out that light for good.

Not my first read by the author and I have read some of the other books in this series. This one I was nervous for because I kind of hand an idea what was coming. It was very intense and action packed with scenes, I think I was missing the romance + heat a little in this one. Under the circumstances of the story I do understand it but that’s just my personal thought on it.

The hero here is the sweetest man alive, he is generous, smart, sexy, handsome and just all around the best guy can be. The heroine is a woman that comes with a past that’s tainted and complicated. These two have actually known each other for a couple years before anything proceeded. The heroine is the ‘big boss’ at the safe house in town and the hero happens to volunteer there on top of his actual job. When a situation occurs, the hero does not hesitate to be there for the heroine. Now this is where it gets complicated I think, because the heroine past is really a rather dark one (not that the hero’s isn’t. they are equally both tainted in their own color) but hers happens to come up from the dark and try to not only ruin the life she has build but also take away people who mean the world to her. A offer happens to slightly save the situation until everything and I mean everything goes against them, will they be able to stick it through or will their own personal darkness ruin it all?

I really think that this was something I was not expecting, the feelings it brought out in me, the story over all. As much as I was fascinated, I also wanted to throw things, be angry with them, smile and feel the first real kiss…I was all over with my emotions in the best way of course. I will be going back to see which ones I have not read in the series and definitely read them.

R E V I E W ➠Maybe We Should by Melissa Foster




BLURB

After spending years wondering who she was, tattoo artist Cait Weatherby finally found her answers on the sandy shores of Silver Island. With two half sisters she never knew existed, a group of friends she adores, and a devastatingly charming admirer who flirts with her at every turn, she’s ready to figure out her next steps. The trouble is, Cait lives in the shadows of a dark past, and she can’t afford complications that might cause her to lose the family she’s only just found—complications like blue-eyed boatbuilder Brant Remington, who is as open as she is guarded. If only the sexy charmer would take the hint…
Brant is Cait’s opposite in every way, but he’s drawn to everything about the sexy newcomer—from the quiet strength that rivals the caution in her mossy-green eyes to her tough facade that he can’t wait to strip away.
As Brant works his magic, Cait’s walls come down. But as sweet as that feels, Cait knows how quickly good things can turn bad. It’s going to take more than a little trust to beat the ghosts of her past and claim the future they both deserve.

Not my first read by the author and I am a huge fan of hers have read almost every single book. This series has been a trouble-some for me because I was just not able to connect with the first book so I wanted to give it a good try on book 2 and same. I think the length to me this time contributed a lot to everything. I usually do like longer books and have read plenty by this author, this series just might not be for me.

Cait was a heroine we all could relate to, vulnerability, strong, sweet and a little of lost. In comes the hero Brant who truly is the heroine’s ‘person’ if you will. I did loved them together and the obstacles they had to endure and go through individually and together were heartbreaking but yet so beautiful. What happened was the more I was with the heroine the more I felt a disconnect and distance between them two. Maybe it was her unwillingness to let go a little or not sure but I lost the ‘together’ of the hero and heroine. This is a lengthy one and there were a lot happening and maybe I also got lost there a little, it started off and I was with it then just as the story went on I think I myself just got lost. I did as always love the style of writing by the author and can appreciate her beautiful style and words. I really wanted to get in touch more when it came to this series but again not every book/series will be for everyone.

R E V I E W ➠ Puck Shy by Teagan Hunter




BLURB

I’m having the definition of a bad year.
Game Six loss costing my team the Cup? Check.
Getting arrested and ruining my image? Check.
Almost getting run over after my car breaks down? Oh, look—a hat trick.
My contract is up with the Carolina Comets this year, and I need to get it together if I want to stay with the team.
I need relaxation, not a relationship.
But when I’m scrolling on a dating app and stumble across the pretty girl who almost ran me over, I know I can’t let her walk away this time.
Harper is funny, smart, and doesn’t care about hockey.
I’m not supposed to be focusing on anything other than my career, yet I can’t get Harper off my mind.
I know I shouldn’t fall for her…but I think I already have.

PUCK SHY is a standalone hockey romantic comedy. It’s good, low angst fun with some hot hockey players. 

RELEASE DATE: October 28, 2021


“I’m sorry I didn’t tell you who I am,”
I say quietly, leaning closer.
“But if you’ll let me, I’ll show you instead.”

Not my first read by Teagan and not my last, I have loved her rom-com and about jumped off my seat when I heard she was writing a sports romance because this was everything-teagan-style but MORE! Also, sports romances happen to be my favorite especially hockey!

Hero and heroine meet when she almost run’s him over. YEP! In the middle of no where of all places, and that’s where the fun begins. The hero thought it would be a good idea to drive the piece of junk across states back, and the heroine was in a rush and thought he was a mirage while she was driving down the stretch of road. After almost running him over, what does she do? Gives the handsome sexy stranger a ride, and of course he insists on driving (man much?) so why not, what can happen? Luckily nothing too bad a lot of banter, laughter and refresh for the hero because the heroine HAS NO IDEA WHO HE IS. And he happens to be a big deal in the NHL as well as the news. After spending some time in the car, being on first name bases, when they parted the heroine didn’t know how much she really wanted him to kiss her. But he does. Their next meet is not conventional either, rather more funny, a dating app of all things…both parties been hoaxed by their friends to join.

The hero is truly a sports romance hero, tough, troubled, handsome, sexy as sin and smart…well most the time. The heroine is a sweet woman who’s been burned by the one person you never should, your own father. She’s wicked smart, is a scary movie fanatic (it’s part of her job also, that one is an interesting one) Their romance may not have been from the romance section of the library more of the horror but it was a sweet and passionate one. Their chemistry is crazy off the charts and the events that happens the side characters all fell into place and fit perfectly with the story. I can not wait to read more in this series!
