Release Blitz: My Fair Puck Bunny by Xavier Neal

My Fair Puck Bunny, an all-new sports romantic comedy by Xavier Neal is NOW LIVE!

From bestselling romance author Xavier Neal comes a sizzling new standalone in the series that's being called a MUST READ for any sports romance fans!

Once upon a time, the Vlasta Vipers hockey team was so incredible — on and off the ice — they were almost mythical.

Unfortunately, seasons passed, and things changed for the worst, like a curse the team didn't know how to break.

The champions became chumps.
The envied became envious.

And the playboys...well, they continued to play, because puck bunnies are always willing to hop into the bed of a guy who knows how to handle his stick.

Several years and one new head coach later, the legendary reputation that was previously lost has finally been restored
Every other university wants to beat them.
Every chick who crosses their paths wants to claim them.

Adrian Stratton, the team's left winger, is ready to enjoy another flawless year on campus, when his ex-girlfriend unexpectedly transfers to his beloved school, threatening to ruin his highly respected reputation. Easiest way to prove he's moved on is to show off his new girlfriend.

The fake one he immediately pretends to have.
The fake one he convinces his sister's best friend to become.
The fake one he accidentally starts to fall head over blades for.

Will this left-wing Casanova score one for true love, or will he hesitate to make the most important shot of his life?

My Fair Puck Bunny is book two in Xavier Neal's Hockey God's series and delivers a story of  the bad boy turned good with a fake relationship. Tatum and Adrian deliver a funny but heartfelt story. 

I really loved the interactions between Adrian and Tatum and watching them fall for each other.  I really felt like I got to see the real Adrian in this book, which admittedly made the story all the much better because there were so many layers there I hadn't expected.  Tatum was another fun character to get to know and love. 

One of my favorite things that Neal brings to each of her novels, is realism, there's always something that hits home, some little connection I can make and share with the characters - even if I wouldn't fit into their world in real life.  She's does a great job of making characters seem like they could be your good friend or neighbor.

As usual, we got to see characters from book one in pieces of this story which only built up my love for it, because I love when books bring a whole cast together and seeing how things have worked and changed. This is especially important in books like these where a sports team is involved.

Courtney Baker is ready to put small town life—and the man she can’t have—behind her. Years of secretly crushing on her best friend’s older brother have led nowhere and she’s finally ready to move on.

It takes a lot to surprise Dean Jones, but a kiss from the girl he’s been secretly attracted to for years does just that. All it takes it one kiss for him to realize he doesn’t want to let her go. But she’s his sister’s best friend and that’s a line he knows he should never cross. Never mind that she seems determined to leave their small town—and him—behind.
When a storm and a broken car stop Courtney from leaving town, Dean sees perfect opportunity to get her out of his system. But can one night ever be enough?

Cover Reveal: Unbreakable by Melanie Harlow


Unbreakable, an all new sexy and swoon-worthy friends to lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is coming February 10th, and we have the gorgeous cover!

Unbreakable AMAZON
In hindsight, I should not have had that fifth mimosa at Breakfast with Santa.
Or the sixth, seventh, and eighth.
But my shame over the public meltdown that resulted was nothing compared to being abandoned by my husband of fifteen years for a much younger woman—and did I mention she’s pregnant?
For the sake of my children and my pride, I pack up and head for my childhood home and the small town where I grew up. Cloverleigh Farms would be the perfect place for a fresh start.
Falling for Henry DeSantis wasn’t part of the plan.
Sure, he’s easy on the eyes and hard in the bedroom (also the hallway, the bathtub, and on top of his desk), but he’s newly divorced too, and things between us are moving so fast I’m afraid neither one of us has had enough time to heal. Not to mention the fact that I’m a single mom now—my kids have to come first.
But Henry makes me feel beautiful and sexy and wanted and strong—things I haven't felt in years. We understand each other, and when I’m in his arms, I’m tempted to trust again. To love again. To let myself be loved without fear.
But deep down, I’m terrified.
Is this all too much, too soon? Or am I a fool to let a second chance at happily ever after pass me by?

"Wickedly brilliant, dark and addictive!" - Jodi Ellen Malpas, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Sinfully sexy and darkly beautiful, The Pawn will play games with your heart and leave you craving more!” – Laura Kaye, New York Times bestselling author
“Smart, dark, deeply sensual read with characters I fell in love with from the minute they walked onto the page!” – Carly Phillips, New York Times bestselling author


The Bishop is the perfect story to dive in to the Tanglewood world. A quick but mysterious read, I found myself rooting for our characters to discover more than vengeance together. Anders and Natalie share parts of a painful past though they don't know it.

We start off our story with the theft of a "priceless heirloom" chess piece, only the priceless notion isn't solely based on value. Anders has an ulterior motive for listing the item for auction, one that has nothing to do with financial gain. So when the piece ends up stolen, Anders wants nothing more than to know who took it and why. But what he discovers in his theif is greater than he expects.

Natalie has struggled for years, the daughter of a once single mom, she's endured a lot through the years and is seeking freedom from her past. But to gain her freedom, she has to do one more thing: Steal a chess piece. Only things aren't quite what they seem and when Natalie's caught - she's got more to handle than her plans for freedom.

I enjoyed watching Anders and Natalie come together. They both carry scars and they'd both suffered at the hands of the same man. Though unexpected, their connection is strong and palpable. As they wind through all of the details, one things comes out - some things are more important than revenge - sometimes Love can conquer all.

Blog Tour: Inappropriate by Vi Keeland

A Standalone Contemporary Romance
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland

Terminated for inappropriate behavior.
I couldn’t believe the letter in my hands.
Nine years.  Nine damn years I’d worked my butt off for one of the largest companies in America, and I was fired with a form letter when I returned home from a week in Aruba. 
All because of a video taken when I was on vacation with my friends—a private video made on my private time. Or so I thought…
Pissed off, I cracked open a bottle of wine and wrote my own letter to the gazillionaire CEO telling him what I thought of his company and its practices.
I didn’t think he’d actually respond.
I certainly never thought I’d suddenly become pen pals with the rich jerk.
Eventually, he realized I’d been wronged and made sure I got my job back.
Only…it wasn’t the only thing Grant Lexington wanted to do for me. 
But there was no way I was getting involved with my boss’s boss’s boss. Even if he was ridiculously gorgeous, confident, and charming.
It would be completely wrong, inappropriate even.
Sort of like the video that got me into trouble to begin with.
Two wrongs don’t make a right.
But sometimes it’s twice as fun.

Apple Books ➜


Like most of Keeland's books, Inappropriate drew me in from the first page, dying to see what would transpire between these two characters.

Ireland Saint James never expected what happened on her private vacation to cost her her job, she also never expected anything good to come from her drunken email to the CEO, Grant Lexington. And this starts off the story of two people who find themselves drawn together by circumstance and find so much more between them.

I really enjoyed Ireland's sass and feistyness. She didn't really take anything lying down and was willing to give when she had to - but not to the point of going against herself. I loved how she held her own in many situations others would break in and how she worked with Grant in many ways.

Grant was a man who'd been through a lot, a painful history, regrets, guilt, and a gnawing in his gut to not relive that past as long as he could avoid it. But there was so much love and feeling left in him, even when he thought he didn't need or deserve it.

The instances with Grant's grandfather added so much extra humor and kept things interesting. I also really enjoyed the dynamics between Grant and his family in general.

Keeland did a great job of showing us how these two grew closer and bonded but also showed us how important communication was. Things were not smooth or easy, but these two overcame a lot before they found each other and with the help of one another, they worked through a lot more

Release Blitz: Making you Mine by Melissa Foster

Making You Mine
The Bradens and Montgomerys 
Melissa Foster
Releasing Jan 22, 2020
World Literary Press

Knox Bentley never liked the pomp and circumstance that came with being wealthy. He’d distanced himself from his pretentious family and their fortune as a young adult and found his own path to success. But even with the world at his fingertips, he realizes something is missing, and after a long stay overseas, he finally knows exactly what it is. His no-strings-attached hookups with Aubrey Stewart, an exquisite and stubbornly independent blonde, are no longer enough for him. They connect on every level, but Aubrey is a fierce businesswoman with a new movie channel on the horizon and no time for much else. She is the deal he can’t close, the precious jewel even his billions can’t buy. Now that he’s back in the States, he’s determined to show her that what they have goes beyond the bedroom and finally make her his.

You may have met LWW Enterprises billionaire Aubrey Stewart in ANYTHING FOR LOVE, and her friends-with-benefits lover (Graham Braden’s business partner), Knox Bentley, in TRAILS OF LOVE. If not, don’t worry! Like all of my books, their story may be enjoyed as a standalone! Buckle up and enjoy the wildly romantic, fantastically fun, ride!

Making You Mine was a sweet, fun and emotional read.  I finished this book in one sitting, because I couldn't wait to see how things worked out.  Knox and Aubrey's story will give you feels and leave you momentarily breathless. 

I loved that Aubrey was the one who didn't want a relationship and Knox was pushing for more than a no-strings-fling.  It was a fun role reversal which made the story that much more entertaining.   They've been hooking up for two years when they can, but Knox knows that they can truly have something more, if only Aubrey could see how right they are for each other.  

I really enjoyed watching Knox try to prove himself to Aubrey as someone she could count on in many aspects: both as a friend and lover.  I loved Aubrey's independent streak too, acknowledging to herself that she was crumbling to her feelings for Knox but scared to really put voice to those feelings.   I really enjoyed watching these two get to know each other and found the emotional aspects fit appropriately as the story flowed - there were very sweet moments, and of course some steam too.  

I really enjoyed how real this story felt, both with the characters feelings and their story. Nothing felt rushed or out of place.
