About Layback:

Not too long ago, I had one goal: Win an Olympic Gold Medal but an injury took me out of the running for the Ladies Figure Skating competition at the last Olympic Games. Nancy Kerrigan was grandfathered in. I was not. Translation: I was disqualified. DQ’d. I was out in the cold on my keister. But when an offer to fill a spot on a pairs team lands in my lap, I take it. It seems like an answered prayer—that is until a competitor is found brutally murdered in her room at the competitor’s village and my partner is the number one suspect. I’m going to have to take matters into my own hands. Again. Sweet Kristi Yamaguchi, save me from overly cocky men. My name is Sophia Eleonore Dubois and holy mother of Dorothy Hamill my life is still complicated . . .

One of my favorite events of the Olympics has always been ice skating. Singles, doubles. Men's. Women's. It didn't matter, I was hooked to the screen watching the competition, much as I was hooked to this story. 

I did not read book one, so I have to admit I felt a bit lost at first, but I still enjoyed the turns we take in this book. 

I really enjoyed Sophia's character, she was someone who I think I'd be friends in real life with. Though sometimes I didn't quite understand how she handled things, I was still intrigued by her and what was in store for her.  Kane also intrigued me, I wanted to know more of what made him tick so to speak.  He was definitely alpha and though sometimes I wasn't sure I agreed with his behavior, he still won me over. 

Jennifer Rebecca definitely delivers on the chemistry, the suspense and characters you just can't help but need more of.

   Exclusive Excerpt: I killed him. After my thirteenth birthday, I murdered my best friend—my only friend—Ethan. We should have stayed in Gibeah, but I insisted we return to Milweekee Middle School, a prison whose inmates dressed in Keds tennis shoes and OshKosh jeans. Armed with acne, attitude, and squeaky prepubescent voices, my classmates lived to torture Ethan—the one-legged cripple— and me, his nosebleeding friend with the bushy hair. “By helping him die, you saved Ethan,” my parents told me. Don’t worry. Mr. and Mrs. Cavanaugh of 7112 S.E. 221st Avenue are not sociopaths; they are as normal as parents are allowed to be. Their sympathetic words soothed me, stopping their only child—me—from killing herself too.

Blog Tour: F-Bomb by Lani Lynn Vale

You murder a man, and all of a sudden people are scared of you.

Slate Solis went from being a guy that people went to in times of need to an ex-con that people crossed the street to avoid being too close to.

He knows he’s done wrong, but out of all of his sins, only one really bothers him—coveting thy neighbor’s wife.

Harleigh Belle—the cute little lady that never gives him a second glance.

After seeing her for the first time while he was in prison, she’s stayed on his mind for three long years. Each time she comes in to visit with her friend on family day, he can’t help but stare.

Then the day comes that he’s set free, and he’s almost disappointed that he’ll never see her again.
Except fate has different plans.

He hasn’t been back in his house for more than three hours when he sees her.

Harleigh Belle in all her glory…oh, and her husband that is everything Slate isn’t.

He tells himself that her being fifty feet away from him, all day every day, is a complete coincidence. 
One that he shouldn’t take advantage of. The more time passes, the harder it gets to stay away. Until one day, and one very ill-timed thunderstorm, ruin everything.

Who knew that baby-making-weather was a real thing?




I've been waiting for Slate's story since we were introduced to him in a previous book.  Harleigh couldn't have been a more perfect match for him. 

I absolutely loved the banter between these two from the start, Slate made a few misconceptions and Harleigh did her best to drive him crazy but it just flat out worked. I really loved watching as Slate adjusted to being on the outside, to being a part of something again and to finding love when and where he least expected it.  

Slate was a good guy, a good guy who'd been through a lot and felt himself lacking in some ways.  I really enjoyed watching Slate with not only Harleigh but the rest of the characters, the men of Free, his sister and Rome, the MC members. It was like watching a man get a second chance at life. 

Harleigh was also a fun character, I loved her little quirks and how she just did what she did and though it wasn't meant to be an "in your face" thing, it kind of was. She, of course, had her reasons for certain quirks and I really enjoyed getting to know more about her there. 

Things weren't as simple or easy for Harleigh and Slate - which gave us the suspense angle of the story and delivered just the right amount of drama for these two.  As always, Vale was able to intricately align every piece of this puzzle together and deliver it in a compelling way.  

Lani Lynn Vale is a USA Today Bestselling Author of over thirty titles. She is married with three children, two dogs, two cats, a donkey, and a couple (a couple also meaning over twenty) chickens.
When she’s not writing, you can find her curled up in her favorite chair reading.
Lani is married with three children and lives in the Great State of Texas.

Cover Reveal: This is Crazy by Natasha Madison

From the best selling series, Something So comes the spin-off This is...

Zara Stone

All my life, I’ve said I will never date a hockey player. I know better because I’ve seen and lived it all. My father is a hockey god, my brother is the captain of the most successful NHL team in the world, and my brother-in-law also plays in the league. Their lives are complicated, so I went in the opposite direction.

I fell in love with a scholar. But instead of proposing marriage, he broke up with me.

Three months later, I saw his engagement picture on Instagram. I couldn’t let him get away with that. No, it didn’t matter what, I was going to make that man see that I did not need him.

Evan Richards

I was in the running to pass my point record from last year, ready to claim the number one spot in the league. On top of my game, I was riding my career high wave.

Then, Hockey’s Princess, Zara Stone tweeted me. She wanted me to crash her ex’s wedding.

The worst that could happen? A PR nightmare. The best? A fun night with a beautiful woman.

It started out as a game—something I’m good at. Her crazy idea twisted into something I wasn’t looking for, something neither of us wanted.

When push comes to shove, one thing runs through my mind:

This is Crazy. Also, this is crazy right.

You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...

About Into Temptation:

Twenty-eight-year-old Lilly Rains would settle for - no, embrace - the idea of Purgatory as atonement for her sins.

He has been sent to retrieve Lilly’s wavering soul, preying on a faith that has been rattled by her past. But where there is darkness, there must also be light and God has decided it is time to intervene. A Guardian has been assigned to protect Lilly from the evil surrounding her.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Please let me walk you home.” “It’s just two blocks,” she said. His hand fell away from the small of her back. “Humor me?” he asked. Lilly rolled her eyes and smiled, “Fine.” They started to walk toward her home when he again wondered who this Ray was. Why it had looked as if Lilly had wanted to knee Ray in the groin at the pub. They were a half block in when his curiosity got the better of him. “Is Ray your ex-boyfriend?” “Absolutely not. Obnoxious men who can’t take no for an answer have never been a turn-on. Ray is not my type.” “What is your type?” he asked. She pursed her lips and hesitated. Me. I’m what you want. “You know, I’m not sure. I guess I haven’t found it yet. But that’s my fault. I probably should start dating.” “Start dating?” he asked. Her choice of words captivated him. They crossed the street, bringing them to her block. He didn’t want this conversation to end. “Um… yeah,” she said, sheepishly. She looked away and focused on the gravel beneath her feet. A thousand questions swirled through his head. “You must miss the companionship, the intimacy a relationship can bring.” “Well, it helps when you don’t know what you’re missing.” Stunned, he peered over at her. She did the same thing she had done in the bar when she realized that she had misspoken. She closed her eyes and shook her head. “I can’t believe I just said that.” “Are you telling me that you’ve never been…” She stopped abruptly and turned toward him. “Yes.” Her fists were clenched at her sides. She looked mortified and pissed off at the same time. “This has been an enlightening night for you. In just under an hour, you have learned that your principal doesn’t attend Mass, which according to my contract is grounds for dismissal. And now, you’ve had the unfortunate experience of witnessing a twenty-eight-year-old admit she’s still a virgin.” Something primal within awakened. Her subtle mannerisms, the way she bit her lip and twirled her hair around her fingers were enough to make his cock twitch. But now, knowing that she had never been with a man was enough to make him want to claim her right there on the sidewalk. “I believe I never was given the opportunity to answer your question.” She crossed her arms over her breasts and started walking toward her house. “What question?” she asked. “You asked me if I thought the priesthood was what I had expected,” he said. “William, don’t do this.” “Do what?” “Attempt to diffuse an embarrassing situation. I’d much rather go home and forget the past hour has ever happened. You know, before I told you that your principal is not a practicing Catholic and has a nonexistent sex life.” She wasn’t trying to be humorous, but he couldn’t help but smile at her. They were nearing her house when he said, “I’m going to answer your question anyway.” He touched her arm and she stopped her brisk pace. “No, the priesthood is not what I had expected. I had anticipated that there would be moments when I would experience loneliness and long for companionship. But I underestimated that all-too-human need for intimacy.” “But… but you’re happy? With the life you’ve chosen?” she asked. Her eyes bore into his and he could feel her searching for something. “Yes. But each day is a struggle.” Her lips parted as if she was going to say something, and then they sealed shut. He wondered what was going through her mind. She no longer appeared embarrassed but intrigued. William was pleased that his admission, though in his mind he had swapped out ‘priesthood’ for the living hell that he was in, had stopped her from wanting to melt into the cracks of the sidewalk. Without thinking, he reached out and tucked a lock of hair behind her ear. Her breathing hitched and her lips again parted. God, he wanted to taste her. “And some days are more challenging than others.”

Exclusive Excerpt:

Maggie stared out the window as Shane took streets through the city to get her to her mom’s house. Asking him to pick her up had been a good choice. She could’ve asked Moira, but her sister would try to talk her out of her plan. Shane was the best listener she’d ever known. He’d proven it again today. The guy even remembered the name of her therapist. Who did that? Shane. Always Shane. He’d been there for her through the good and the really, really bad. Even when it was hard, and she’d tried to push him away because she didn’t think she could be around any guy after being raped, he stayed. Not in an obnoxious I know what’s best for you way, but in an I care about you way. Without him, she probably never would have had the guts to travel. After he pulled up in front of her mom’s house, he put the truck in park but didn’t turn off the ignition. “Coming in?” He let out a small chuckle. “You decided to come home without telling your family. Then you had me pick you up from the airport. They’re going to have plenty to say, and I don’t want to be caught in the crossfire. I think I’ll head home.” “Chicken.” “Smart.” “Whatever.” She yanked on the handle and jumped from the cab. Shane met her and grabbed her suitcase. After setting it on the curb at her feet, he held her hand. “I’m glad you’re finally home.” “You’re gonna get sick of me.” “Never.” He slammed the door. “Give me a call if you want to get together later.” “My family will probably fill my night. And then some. I’ll call when I need to escape.” She hefted the bag and stared at the front door. Although she knew Shane had gotten back behind the wheel, the truck didn’t move. Of course he’d wait for her to go inside. She waved at Shane and walked up the steps. The last time she’d made this trip, she entered a living room filled with her siblings all crying. Their mother had had a heart attack and was in the hospital. The whole episode made Maggie realize how much she was missing. Not just for herself, but with her family. As the youngest, she’d always been able to count on having her family there. It had never occurred to her that at some point they might not be. She turned the knob on the door and found resistance. She fished out her keys and let herself in. With the door closed at her back she paused and took a slow inhale. No dinner smells. And quiet. She couldn’t remember a time when home was quiet. “Mom?” she called, hoping her mom was there. “What? Who is it?” A relieved sigh joined the smile on her face. “It’s me, Maggie.” She turned the corner and walked through the living room and dining room. Her mother stood at the door to the kitchen. The teacup in her hand shook. Maybe a surprise homecoming wasn’t the best idea. “What’s wrong?” Eileen asked. “Nothing. I’m home. For good.” Her mom set her tea on the table. “When did this come about? And without so much as a phone call.” Maggie hugged her mom and breathed in the scents of Jean Naté cologne and Estée Lauder makeup. Mom gave her a quick pat on the back. “How do you feel?” she asked Eileen. “Fine. Same as I have been every time you’ve asked. I’ve had enough of the coddling.” She took up her cup again and sipped before sitting at the dining room table.
