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


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)


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.
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


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 ➠ Puck Shy by Teagan Hunter


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!

RELEASE DATE: September 16, 2021


Not my first time by the ladies and I also have read the other 2 in the series & LOVEDDDD them, this series is a MUST READ as well as this book #3, SWOON SWOON SWOON!

The hero is a single-dad pro baseball player. When he moved cities and his 2 most adorable children, he is in need of a Nanny, in walks our beautiful down to earth heroine. The heroine comes from money but has always been paving her own path, humble, beautiful and sweet. When a chance happens where she steps in to be the temp Nanny for the hero’s kids, she falls in love with the kids more than when she got to see them at school where she has been a substitute. They together, gah the heroine’s big heart is so damn beautiful and the way she is with his kids. I do also love her feisty sexy side, the hero really steps it up with the SWOON SEXY-ness…yes I made that word up and it now exists!

It had some interesting twist and turns not going to lie, I did not see that going the way it did regarding the hero, I may also have been a little mad at him in the end, luckily he redeems himself but I def would have still held a tiny grudge about his behavior. But I really really enjoyed this read and knew it would be amazing as this series is!

R E V I E W ➠ Untamed Devil by Melissa Ivers

(Nashville Devils #2)


I’m not ready to be a single dad…
I had my life all figured out.
Hockey. A revolving door of women. No strings. No worries.
Until my sister runs off with a man she’s just met and leaves my nine-year-old niece in my living room with nothing but a backpack, a stuffed snake named Leo, and a broken heart.
I need help.
Elle Hurst was only supposed to be in my life for one night–a curvy distraction with a big heart and a wicked sense of humor. But she’s volunteered to watch Chloe while she’s in town, and I have no choice but to let her.
It can’t last.
She has an expiration date, a life to get back to in Savannah, and I don’t do relationships. I know people don’t stick around no matter how much you want them to–it’s a lesson I’ve been taught my whole life.
I won’t risk losing my heart…or will I?

RELEASE DATE: August 26, 2021

NEW to me author and books. I’ve had a crazy year this year so I did not remember if I requested this ARC but it showed up either way, so I gave it a try. I am glad I did, I fell in love with both the Hero & Heroine.

Tag is a single-dad but in a little bit of a different way. He is a hockey star and well his life isn’t as easy as one would think. I fell in love with the hero from the start, I can appreciate why he had his walls up because of his past but he stood no chance with Chloe. She was just so adorable, sweet, beautiful and real. Their chemistry was not only physical but just an over all, and I loved watching them dance around one another and when we got to the beautiful moment, I was swooning and blushing in the same.

Very sweet story, love the sport romance vibe & the characters.

R E V I E W ➠ Jett by Sawyer Bennett

(Arizona Vengeance #10)


Jett Olsson isn’t looking for anything serious and she’s not looking for anything at all, so why does it seem so hard to keep it professional?
I love my life—the thrill of being on the ice as part of the Arizona Vengeance, the rush of winning, the adoration of the fans. And if that adoration means I don’t have to spend the night alone, well even better. I’m content being single and always ready to mingle.
But the day Emory Holland walks into a Vengeance team meeting my attention is caught like never before. I can tell right away she’s full of smarts and sass, and the fact that she’s hot as hell sure doesn’t hurt either. She immediately shuts down my advances, so I opt for the road less traveled—straight to the friend zone.
My approach works like a charm, and when she invites me into her bed for a no-strings, friends-with-benefits arrangement, I vow to give her everything I have. She’s been hurt before, and if I’m able to help her heal while giving her a spectacularly satisfying time *pats self on back*, then I’ll be happy.
Or at least that’s the lie I keep telling myself as the time ticks down on the final buzzer of our “relationship”. Now the real question is, can I score the winning goal in a game neither of us realized we were playing?

RELEASE DATE: July 20, 2021

Not my first read by the author, I’ve been a long time fan and have read a lot of the books in the series already!

This was a very sweet one from the start. This book contains a lot of heart, truth, parenting, love and trust. The heroine is a single-mom with a shaky past because of her ex husband. The hero is a single and loving it hockey star, not a playboy per say but also not a choir boy. There is no OW involved which I was happy about. They both meet because of work and when The Hero tries to score a date with the heroine, he gets shot down. But the hero doesn’t give up and I am so glad he didn’t. In this i can definitely say I loved the hero the most and the heroines little daughter, and maybe her sister also. The heroine was a bit here and there, understandably of course, but she was too sweet in all and so strong after what she went through with the ex. When a hockey star who is loving his life being single meets the single-mom who also doesn’t want complicated but then love doesn’t always work in order. Loved watching these two together and the main reason it got a 4.5 stars is the NO EPILOGUE just a personal thing for me.

R E V I E W ➠Fake Start by Jasmin Miller

(Kings of the Water #4)


You know that awkward moment when your agent tells you to fake date your best friend’s sister so you can get the endorsement deal of your dreams? No?
Call me crazy for considering it, but why not? Daisy’s my friend, after all, and I’ve gotten quite close to her and her two awesome boys over the last few years since her douche-nozzle husband divorced her. She loves it when I flirt with her, so we could carry it off, couldn’t we?
An endorsement deal with Lock Performance has been my goal ever since I was little, and it would be one of the biggest accomplishments in my professional swimming career. Something I want desperately.
But what I didn’t expect from this fake start was to want something else—someone—just as desperately. How do I make sure I don’t lose both?

RELEASE DATE: June 25, 2021

Not my first read by the author and I have read all of the previous books in this series. This one was a sweet sweet ending to the series. Everything I expected out of Hunter is what I got.

This is a sweet and beautiful single-mother friends-to romance that will leave you swooned, riled up and going awww! Hunter is the perfect hero, I fell in love with him from the moment we met him. That is to say the same about the heroine Daisy. They were adorable together and I will say that the sexy scenes did not disappoint in one bit either! I loved everything about them together, the story line, the in-betweens and the side characters. It flowed very well, easy and light read with a hint of some tear moments and a lot of fun and spice.

R E V I E W ➠ Mason by Megan O’Brien

A Ride Series Crossover Book


Ellie Mitchell has spent the better part of the last five years trying to move on from her past. As far as she’s concerned, being alone is the best medicine. That is, until a certain football star comes barreling into her life, unexpected and oh so persistent.
Mason Jackson is a man who knows what he wants. And he wants Ellie. Ellie isn’t like any woman he’s met before with her quick wit and complete disinterest in his fame. Now, he’ll need to convince her that taking a chance on him is worth it.
When Ellie’s past resurges with dangerous consequences, Mason will do everything and anything to protect the woman he loves.
This is the story of Ellie and Mason, a Ride Series crossover novel.

RELEASE DATE: May 3, 2021

Not my first read by the author and yes I have read all of her books and re-read them enough times to be able to relive them all without even looking at the book haha so you can say I am a fan. Little nervous to this my review might be the first yet but super excited to share my excitement for this book and series and world. So, I have been waiting on MASON forever it feels like, well since we first got to see him in CAL which he is just a baby, this is his mother’s Jill and his step-father Cal story (absolutely loved loved loved this one) that is Book #5 in the RIDE Series. That said I would highly recommend reading in order, honestly I think you get a lot in this book and if you have at least read any part of CAL or the other books it’ll make more sense, because Mason doesn’t have any blood siblings but lot’s of brothers and sister. His older brother COLE has his own story (Cole is Cal’s biological son) and then there is his older sister Emmie & Max and they both also have their own story. So, do you see now what I mean by reading part of the story before this one?! Yes!

That also said, I was so excited for this one because Mason may not be in the ‘family business’ but he is very much still part of the world. Mason is a successful and well known Football player in Colorado and our heroine is just the sweetest amount of vulnerable, sweet, beautiful and strong. This is exactly how I imagined Mason. Ellie meet’s Mason on accident, and he fabricates the truth a little. After being the strong one and telling him off, she doesn’t expect to see him again…after all she went to the party with her best friend only because of her. Ellie could care less about famous people, money or anything to do with it. Actually she had no idea who Mason was even after seeing him which was a fresh breath of air for him. When Mason shows up at her work, she ends up going to dinner with him. How do I explain this without giving it all away?! Gah! It’s a good doze of MEGAN’S world that’s how I want to put it and if you’ve read her books you’ll know. You have the alpha, sweet, smart, sexy and protective hero and again the heroine was just enough of everything needed for them to fit. Ellie get’s throw into lime light but with her past how can she be safe or keep her loved ones safe?!

You get everything in here: Insta-Love, Alpha Hero, Sweet Heroine, Swooning, Danger, Action, Honesty, Real Connection…Mason really lived up to his name, long time coming and worth the wait!

R E V I E W ➠ Hard to Lose by K. Bromberg

I know finding and signing a military vet to the agency is a long shot–but it’ll be good press just letting him try out. That’s what I tell my family, rather than admit I can’t get the letter he wrote us five years ago out of my head.
But what I tell the bartender in his hometown is a lie. I know veterans protect each other. So I pretend to be a graduate student.
Sparks. Flame. Fire. I accidentally got in too deep.
I didn’t expect to develop feelings for Gunner Camden.
And there’s no way I can admit to my lies now, not without destroying what we share. So I’ll keep faking it.
There are two versions of me: before, and after deployment.
Back then I was a screwup kid. I’d lie, cheat, and steal my way out of everything. My only love was baseball.
After I started fighting, I found out there had been another path for me. One that involved my dream. But by then I had seen too much.
The old me was dead, so I put my dreams to rest, too.
Then Chase Kinkade walks into my bar and reminds me that life is meant to live. No regrets.
Fresh. Happy. Hopeful. I can start to see a new dream, with her.
But sometimes things are too good to be true… and dishonesty is the one thing I can’t forgive.

RELEASE DATE: March 30, 2021

Not my first read by the author, and I have read the previous series books as well.

In this one we get to meet the youngest Kincade sister, Chase Kincade. She is something of a different breed because she is so young but so goal and career driven that anything else for her is just in the way. Her older sister’s may have found love but to her, career comes first. She wants to be someone, prove to herself and everyone that she can do anything her big sisters can and more. Even though her sisters give her a hard time about being too much of a workaholic, it get’s to Chase and the fact that all are so competitive, she can’t loosen anything now.

But what happens when Chase finds a letter that was addressed to their company, but 5 years too late? Well of course she has to go and figure it out, make it happen, win win win. By win I mean she just is competitive in nature and getting down to this would not only help her sister see she is the best but also free publicity for the company. Well, then she meets Gunner and boy did my heart melt. These two will remind you what true young love can be. Gunner is the sweetest, swoon worthy and kindest hero. Their relationship and connection is just so pure.

Very emotional ride on this one, I’d have tissue handy. I really was nervous about a young heroine and so when I knew this sister was coming, I was nervous since I am not a fan of young heroines and have had terrible experiences with them. Luckily this author came through and it was just hard not to love both the hero and heroine.

Even if it’s likely we’ll both be burned.
When everything is on the line, is he worth sacrificing everything I’ve built? Or will he be the one to skate away?

RELEASE DATE: March 11, 2021

NEW to me author, and look at that cover yet alone the blurb that catches you. I am grateful to have a ARC of this!

This was a fun read! I say fun because it’s hockey for one my favorite sports romance and two because it involved the heroine in power so to say. The hero and heroine do have a past/history and after 6 years of being broken up and not really in each other’s anything, they both get a very sweet shock to find out that the heroine Jazz is now the owner of the same hockey team that her old boyfriend Lincoln. The fun part in all this is watching the skirt around each other, knowing very well that Jazz still has strong feelings and always had for the hockey hunk. But now everything is forbidden of course, after all she co-owns the team with her brothers, not to mention she has always dreamed of this, so after their father passed and left the term to them, she was excited well, maybe not fully after realizing that Lincoln old be there but excited to start new for her. Lincoln is a man who is not only under appreciated, under played but is sick of it and wants to change it, or leave. But with Jazz as the new owner he knows that messing anything with her again will not only break her and his heart but also his career., so he keeps his distance and tries his best to just have a professional relationship even if deep down that’s the last thing he wants to do. It was fun and heartbreaking to watch these two come together and I LOVED loved the heroine so much in this, the hero too but she took the cake for me.

R E V I E W ➠ Hard To Score by K. Bromberg

(Play Hard #3)

I’ve signed numerous players to my family’s agency—I assumed winning over my next client would be just as easy.
The last thing I expected was to run into the boy who took my first kiss and broke my heart: only now Drew Bowman is all grown up.
Sexy. Scandal-tainted. Second-string. The crush I never got over.
I tell myself work is the reason I can’t get him out of my head. I tell him his talent far outweighs his position, and I know I can help. I lie and lie, because admitting that I want a second chance at my first love is impossible.
Some lines cannot be crossed, and ours was drawn in the sand years ago
I’m supposed to hate her
I’ve been told so time and again for ten years – her father ruined our family, smeared my name before my career even began
But that’s not what I’m feeling now
Brexton Kincade just strode out of my memories and onto my field
Driven. Determined. Grown up. The Capulet to my Montague
Being with her would be an unforgivable sin against my father, but I can’t resist the pull between us. Even if it means hiding what we have. Even if it means confronting the secrets I’ve always feared were lies.

RELEASE DATE: February 16, 2021

Not my first read by the author and I have read all the books in this series!

I wasn’t sure what to expect in this one but I FELL IN LOVE! This is a second-chance that I was rooting from FROM PAGE ONE! I enjoyed every single page, every turn, every look, touch and even the sad! Drew and Brex share a very long history, but what drove them apart? That’s something you’ll have to dive in to find out but will say that it will keep you on your toes but mostly destroy you emotionally!

Drew was carrying the world on his shoulders, spinning to keep his family afloat but also trying to live his own life. Having to downplay his talent more years….until he runs into Brex. You would think them being in the same work field they’d have done that many years ago but no, he kept his distance. When they see each other again, it’s not a love at first sight look of love. The history they shares is one sided, meaning Drew believes what he has been told and lived with and Brex has no idea what the problem might be. It takes them a little to warm up but something about Drew being vulnerable in ways and Brex loving him…SWOON and all the emotions! Highly recommend but also the whole series!

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

When I inherited the Dallas Oilers from my father , I became one of the youngest owners in hockey history. Even though the team was at the bottom of the hockey standings,
I had big plans to change that and bring the Cup to Dallas.
Falling in love was something I never believed would happen to me.
You’d think I was getting everything I ever wanted with the girl and the winning record, but I still have a promise to fulfill to my childhood best friend.
Never let them see you sweat has been my life motto since I decided to make a name for myself as the most-sought-after sport agent.
I know what it takes to close a deal, and only want one thing—to be the best.
Until I felt his touch one night, and everything I thought I knew was forgotten. Nico is everything I’ve never let myself want.
But all my cards came crashing down the minute I read the headlines.
It takes only one touch to change everything! 

RELEASE DATE: February 9, 2021

Not my first read by the author, I am very well acquainted with her writing and love a lot of her books, I also have read the previous books in this series.

I knew going into this one that I’d be 50/50 because of the heroine. She’s very strong and well a boss of your will which is great but a slight turn off for me. Luckily the hero matches and out-matches her so it balanced but I want fully sold on this heroine for a while. She has a big heart but it’s naked with a lot of proper I’m rich and sexy style of attitude feel that gives me an off vibe. Their relationship feels more like a friend with benefits, dangerous forbidden SEXY AS FUCK vibe. He is very much the alpha sexy in suit man, they both would combine a POWERHOUSE couple of that makes sense. 
That said the story did not disappoint! I was on my toes and even though I kind of guessed maybe not fully, it still took me by surprise. I ended up really loving both of in the end, even though deep down I’d like to have smacked the hero upside the head first…but definitely happy with 2 epilogues and the after feel of the story!

R E V I E W ➠ Not My Match by Ilsa Madden-Mills

(The Game Changers #2)

Homeless and heartbreakingly innocent, Giselle Riley walks into my penthouse and chaos follows.
I shouldn’t have invited the girl genius to live with me, but it’s clear she needs my help—not only for a place to lay her pretty blonde head but in finding real love, which she’s not going to get with the crazy men she picks up online.
Too bad she’s a twenty-four-year-old virgin and I’m a bad boy wide receiver. She’s off limits for a hardcore player like me—and we’re just friends.
Instead, I’m her matchmaking service, no matter how jealous it makes me when I tag along on her dates.
I can keep my self-control. Right? No way will I give in to everything inside me that dreams of a girl like her in my world.
I may be the best wide receiver in the country, but how could I hold on to a girl like her?

RELEASE DATE: January 19, 2021

Not my first read by the author, I read her books before I started my bookstagram and fell in love with this Series from Book 1, am looking forward to diving into this one!

This one was going to be fun I just knew it, because the heroine is very different. Let’s recap, the heroine is the book 1 H’s sister and the hero is the beat friend of Book 1 Hero. That said going in I knew that Giselle was going to be off limits to Devon. Even though they originally met when Giselle was engaged to the ex-asshole…she actually has had a crush on Devon for a very long time. And Devon who was warned by his beat friend to stay away, she’s innocent…wasn’t sure how to keep his own feelings at bay. Both having been burned by an ex, it was fun to watch them skirt around one another. You can’t deny ZING in the words of Giselle. Their road to each other may nor be original or easy, but boy was is sweet and just swoon-y. The heroine is unique, quirky, blunt, funny, nerdy and so beautiful. The hero is also unique, best at what he does, troubled family and a murky past. Them together as friends was so much fun to watch and learn, something about them both being nerd-y in their own way, when they come together it’s just too cute. Really enjoyed the ending because the peek was more of a rush. Highly Recommend this book & series!

Officer Collins Sutton can take care of herself…Returning to Sunnyville was never part of the plan, but after the death of their mother, she’s home to help care for her disabled brother. As she finds her footing being back in her hometown her path crosses with the new guy in town. Sexy, mysterious and not swayed by her usual brush off… Sunnyville might not be big enough for both of them.
Boxer Keegan “The Punisher” Ranger was once the light heavyweight champion of the world but he lost his passion for fighting when his mentor died. Now he’s focusing on building his new gym… and life. After taking verbal blows from Officer Sutton, the sassy redheaded sister of his new gym helper, he realizes something might finally be worth fighting for again.
Collins isn’t convinced that Keegan is the good guy everyone else in town thinks he is and moves in for a better look. As much as his dark eyes and wicked smile are a warning bell she draws closer to him. However, when he betrays the most important person in her life he just might lose his shot at being the only contender for her heart. 

Tiffany Lynn’s Contender  is a sexy, heartfelt, contemporary romance written in K. Bromberg’s Everyday Heroes Worlds project.

New to me author and books. Something about this blurb really drew me in. I’ve read a lot of part of WORLD books and was getting a bit cold on them, then read the blurb and wanted to give it a try.
First expression, I liked it from the beginning, the vibe of it. the hero is a boxing champion and the heroine is actually a Cop, so that was different and got me excited. The only downfall for me was that it took quite some time for hero and heroine to even BE if that makes sense so once we cross over to above 25/35% for me, I get a little bored waiting for it, this one was shorter so it kind of balanced that out. although it did end up feeling like it was thrown together, no work up to it feel. I have to say that I did not like the little nickname he had for her, just didn’t fit for me for their relationship. it was cute though in a sense.
This hero really is swoon worth in all sense. Loved that he had a huge heart, protective, a man’s man, sweet, smart and sexy. The heroine was very strong feminine, being a Cop that made sense, there was some fun side in there if he, I just images he a little thing but very masculine. I think what fully threw me off this story is that while the hero considered her his girlfriend, when shit his the fan, her response was “we weren’t really together, it was just a real quick thing” even though she was at fault fully.  so that turned me off and mostly put me off on the whole story. it got little better in the very end as usual, but I just ended up not being able to vibe with the whole book. (aside from the hero, he was my absolute fav & Sam) I appreciate having the chance to review beforehand.

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

(Only One #3)

As captain of the Dallas Oilers, I was their leader on and off the ice. From the outside, it looked like I had the perfect life.
I didn’t.
I was married to a woman who refused to give me a divorce. All she wanted was the status title, and all I wanted was to be set free.
It was supposed to be just another event, except it took a turn I didn’t see coming.
Attending my best friend’s bachelorette party isn’t something I was looking forward to.
But it’s strange what a couple of glasses of wine will do.
It was one night, and I thought I would never see him again.
Especially not coming face-to-face with him and his wife while picking up my nephew from hockey practice
All it takes is one kiss, one touch, one chance, and only one night.

RELEASE DATE: January 5, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read almost every single book of hers. Love her style and I really love this SERIES! This one was different in the best ways possible.

I don’t want to give too much but I really really enjoyed this one! I was skeptical for a mil-sec because this hero is still married and I wasn’t sure how this was going to go. I was surprised to see that the hero was down-to-earth honest sweet handsome and truly someone I would fall in love with right away! Which I did, heck I fell in love with the heroine too, they fit so well together, when they met it was kind of fate, same place right time, their night spend was sexy and exciting! What came after was a true and true fight but one worth it!

What I loved about this aside that it’s a series so the side characters and previous ones are always fun to read about, but the hero was just honest and upfront, and the heroine was a mix of sweet, strong and vulnerable…she moved back to kind of start over and one night changed everything for her. These two truly go through a fight for their relationship. I loved watching it all unfold, beware of the EVIL B WIFE I mean she was horrible! Highly recommend this series!!
