I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention.

First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost.

But women never keep my attention for more than a night.

Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast.

When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.

Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer.

Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night.

And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of.

I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her.

I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble.

This is a stand-alone novel.

My Review

Louise Bay offers her readers another sexy British alpha male with Landon Wolf’s story, and taking after his predecessors, he is hot as hell, a dirty talker, and used to getting what he wants. The reasons behind Landon’s placement on the yacht adds to the intrigue of the story line and as this aspect of the story unfolds and the clues start to reveal themselves, it becomes all about protecting the innocent and taking down the threat before things get out of hand.

Skylar Anderson is the perfect woman for Landon because she’s just as stubborn as he is and not afraid to go head to head with him when it’s something she truly believes in. At times, I did feel like Skylar was a bit too much to take due to her high expectations and certain actions that didn’t quite fit with all that Landon did to make things work between them. But I did understand her hesitancy and fears, I just wanted her to realize that Landon was worth the risk sooner than she did.

Landon and Skylar definitely have sexual chemistry and their attraction to each other and their need to have one another in every way possible resonates from the pages of their story and makes for some super steamy scenes, which is never a bad thing because the intimate times they’re together, they don’t just burn up the sheets, but they feel just how compatible they are, which proves that they could mean everything to each other as long as they’re willing to try as well as get through the outside forces hindering their progress. 

Suspense and steam are woven together in quite the satisfying way in The Wrong Gentleman, but I do wish certain parts of the story were fleshed out more, offering a closer look at things that I just couldn’t concretely envision as they were written. But I definitely enjoyed the banter between the hero and heroine and the fact that Landon’s focus remained on his job while also bringing Skylar into his life in ways that he thought he would never want to have.

4 Poison Apples


“Did I tell you how beautiful you look tonight?”

For some reason, Landon’s compliment didn’t make me wince the way some men’s comments did. Everything about him was different and it had thrown me off kilter. His warm breath on my neck shouldn’t have made me shiver. He shouldn’t ease the ever-present knot in my stomach or have me wanting to slide my hand into his as we walked. He shouldn’t make me feel safe. “You didn’t.”

“Well, you do. Not that it’s any surprise.”

“Because you’re a gentleman who prefers blondes,” I said, nudging him gently with my elbow, trying to lighten the mood.

He pulled in a breath and scraped his hand through his hair. “I’m beginning to think I’m a man who just prefers you.”

I focused on the cobbled street in front of us. “Me?” Had I been mistaken about the ex-girlfriend in town or the girl on Tinder? I tried to hold my breath to ensure I heard his reply.

“Yeah, you. I like you. More and more.”

My stomach swooped, and I tried to think of a response. My head was telling me to run. Far away. I didn’t want to fall for anyone. I’d worked hard to stay single all these years—to keep away from temptation. But now, temptation right in front of me, I found myself rooted to the spot, wanting to know what was next. “Okay.”

“Okay?” he asked.

I nodded, unsure of what to say. Unsure of how I felt. I knew I found Landon attractive.

I knew I liked him too. But I also knew that I’d been single all these years for a reason.

He wrapped his large hand around my upper arm to steady me when I stumbled over a loose cobblestone. We stopped, and I looked up at him as he swept his thumb across my cheekbone. “I’m only going to ask you this once, and you don’t have to decide now, but stay with me tonight?”

“Landon . . .” Somehow, I couldn’t say no to him, even though I knew I shouldn’t say yes.

“Think about it.”

I was issued a warning: stay away from Ben Rosenberg.

As Clifton Cove’s resident “king”, he thinks he’s entitled to anyone and anything.

The trouble is, I’ve spent my whole life following the rules and playing it safe. I know what it feels like to be the good girl. I’m the police chief’s daughter and a librarian—for adorable children, no less. My wardrobe consists of colorful sundresses and baggy jeans. I might as well have a Post-it stuck to my forehead that reads: Yup, she’s a virgin.

An all-nighter with a fictional hunk is about as exciting as my life gets, until one day, fate decides to take pity on me and shove me straight into the path of Mr. Off-Limits himself.


Just as I suspected, every inch of him promises to be my demise. Up close, he’s tall, menacing, dangerously handsome—the type of man who’s never spent a single moment worrying about the opinions of others. A well-behaved girl would do as she’s told and avoid him at all costs, but I’m overdue for a little rebellion.

No more Friday nights sprawled out on the couch in my comfiest pajamas. No more wishing I had the courage to misbehave.

Everyone thinks Ben is going to ruin me.

They think he’ll chew me up and spit me out.

Well, Ben…go ahead.

Tempt me. Taunt me.

Make me bad.

BLOG TOUR REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY: Luck of the Devil by Meghan March


New York Times bestselling author Meghan March continues the story of ruthless, calculating billionaire Jericho Forge in Luck of the Devil. 

My poker face has always been one of my greatest assets, along with my grit and determination. I was beholden to no one. Asked permission for nothing.

Then Jericho Forge took my life by storm.

I traded my freedom for something infinitely more precious, but I didn’t realize he was holding an unbeatable hand.

Now, all I have to do is survive the high-stakes game that is my life—with my heart intact.

But not falling in love with Forge? That will take the luck of the devil.

Luck of the Devil is the second book of the Forge Trilogy, and should be read following Deal with the Devil. The Forge Trilogy concludes in Heart of the Devil.

My Review

After reading Luck of the Devil, I can wholeheartedly say that I am just as ‘dick-struck’ by Jericho Forge as India is, but my obsession with Jericho has more to do with the man he is becoming due to India’s influence and the connection they share than what he and his Kraken can accomplish between the sheets;)

Book 1, in my opinion, focused on India’s willingness to do whatever it took to save her sister, even if that meant making a deal with the devil, but Book 2 is all about Jericho Forge, and Meghan March does a great job of detailing all the ways that his past has shaped his present and making it clear why his life is as regimented and driven by wealth and power as much as it is. Forge is a self-made man – someone who has fought for everything that he has obtained, but somewhere along the way, he forgot his mentor’s most important lesson, so it’s a good thing that India is now by his side to show him what he’s missing out on and remind him that there are some things that money can’t buy.

Even though India makes Jericho feel off-kilter, what she also does is open his eyes to things that he never considered as a part of his life, and while she has every right to distrust him and to question his newfound demeanor, given his reasons for marrying her in the first place, through his first person perspective, readers are aware of everything that Jericho truly feels for his wife and how much of a game changer she is.

I love that March brings a few of her worlds together when Creighton and Holly spend time with India and Jericho, and I absolutely adored the honest and open advice that Creighton gives to Jericho when he needs it the most. Creighton’s insights provide him with a clear perspective on what should matter and in what order, and without that knowledge, I feel like India and Jericho’s relationship would have been over before it ever really started to be real.

March leaves readers with quite the suspenseful ending to book two, and while I’m eager to get my hands on Heart of the Devil, the build-up to the finale is everything it needs to be due to March’s ability to shake things up and craft unexpected plot twists that will surely shake up characters’ lives as well as readers’ expectations.

BLOG TOUR REVIEW AND EXCERPT: The Son and His Hope by Pepper Winters

The Son and His Hope, a sweeping standalone from New York Times Bestselling author Pepper Winters is live!


“Things you should know about me from the very beginning:

I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son.

I am happy being alone.

And that is all I ever want to be.”


The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson.

It wasn’t a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow.

That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man.

And nothing and no one could change his mind.


I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent’s life.

He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive.

I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of sorrow that made me want to hug and heal him.

I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father.

We shared similarities.

I recognised parts of him because they were parts of me.

But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried.

He stayed true to his vow to never fall.

My Review

I don’t think I’ve ever cried while reading a book like I did during my time spent with Ren and Della. And, if there ever was a story out there that epitomized just how powerful an author’s words and storytelling are it’s Pepper Winters’ Ribbon Duet. I can’t even begin to describe the feelings that surfaced as I read about Ren and Della’s journey, and even though I knew what was coming when I reached the end of The Girl & Her Ren, fracturing my heart even more than it already was, I wouldn’t have changed a single part of my reading experience, even if it left me emotionally drained and more than a little broken.

I can wholeheartedly say that I’m still not over the world and characters that Pepper Winters created and I know that there are many readers who feel the exact same way, so when I learned that Winters was writing Jacob’s story – Ren & Della’s son – I knew I needed to steel myself, once again, for a tale rich in heartbreak, in overwhelming emotions, in the idea of love and loss and of life and death because if I did, despite the amount of tears I shed, I knew that the lessons taught through the characters’ experiences would, once again, stay with me, changing my perception of what it means to fully live and the reasons why some people choose the more difficult path because it’s during that time that they truly find out who they are and what they need, despite feelings to the contrary.

Like father, like son – that was my first thought as I witnessed Jacob Wild’s stubbornness and his inability to see beyond what happened to his mother and father and the love they shared. Because of his past, Jacob lives a solitary life, unwilling to allow anyone to penetrate his highly guarded walls, not allowing his heart to be tattered and scarred anymore then it already has been. And while it’s easy to understand why he chooses to live the way he does, which will, no doubt, have readers empathizing with everything he’s had to face, it also will leave readers beyond frustrated, pleading with Jacob to recognize what he’s going to lose if he doesn’t find the strength to move forward…find the hope he needs to give his heart to the one person who will handle it with the delicate care that he needs and deserves.

As soon as Pepper Winters introduced readers to Hope Murphy, I knew that she would be a game changer for Jacob – the one who would make him want to change…make him want to give his heart to…make him want to go against everything he had cemented in his mind when it came to loving another person. But things are never that simple, especially for someone who has dealt with what Jacob has, so I knew that it wouldn’t be easy for Hope to truly penetrate Jacob’s heart…that he would still be held back by his fear, forcing them both to endure excruciating heartache and the exact pain that Jacob had fought so hard to never feel again.

I’m so thankful that Pepper Winters gave readers Jacob’s story; I can’t begin to imagine how emotionally draining this entire series was for her to write, but I’m so damn glad she did. I’ve always enjoyed Winters’ storytelling and the ease with which she crafts her multifaceted characters, but there’s something in The Ribbon Duet series that sets it apart even from her other amazing books, and while I can’t quite put into words everything that makes Ren, Della, and Jacob’s stories stand out among the rest, the fact that they are three characters who will stay with me long after their stories have been told says everything that readers need to know in order to one-click these emotionally dense books.

5 Poison Apples

Release Blitz.jpg


It’d been a long time since I’d seen her, and this new woman in front of me didn’t compute with the waifish girl I’d done my best to scare off.

“I couldn’t sleep.” She blinked with eyes too hooded to be innocent. She spoke with a voice too rich and feminine to belong to the annoying Hope Jacinta Murphy.

My hands curled, fighting away sick appreciation. For years, I hadn’t bothered mingling with anyone other than family. Back when I’d attended school, the girls showed off their newly formed bodies and flaunted their sexual preference. Their obvious flirting turned me off rather than on. They all seemed so desperate to impress, so eager for a connection that would end up destroying them.

Hope, meanwhile, was none of those things.

She was shy beneath strength. Quiet beneath conversation. And when she’d hugged me?

God, she’d shown me pain had multiple levels.

A hug from family could sear and sting.

But a hug from her?

It drew blood.

“It isn’t safe to wander around this late on your own.” My hands balled, my voice thickened, and I did my best to keep my eyes on her face because there was no way I could look at her body. No way I could permit myself to see the change in her, the growth, the knowledge that she might drive me to rage and disturb my carefully perfected world, but she was the most beautiful creature I’d ever seen.

Soft but sharp. Trusting but careful. Fragile but brave.

All the things that drew out the best and worst in me. I wanted to be kind, so she was happy. I wanted to be cruel, so she’d leave.

I didn’t have the strength to fight both instincts or convince myself I was content with being alone. My phobia of getting close to anyone ordered me to back up and point at Mom’s house. “Go back, Hope.”

She bit her lower lip, looking at where I pointed before capturing my stare again.

I didn’t stand a chance with the way she studied me. The same way she’d watched me as a child with a certainty and calmness that made me fidget and bristle. Only now, a deeper element was there too. A terrifying welcome. A petrifying invitation that had nothing to do with the years we’d danced around each other and everything to do with this new torturous existence.

“I don’t want to go back yet.” Her voice whispered through the grass, sounding part breeze, part shadow.

“What do you want?” My jaw clenched.

What the hell sort of question is that, and why did I ask it?

She cocked her head, hair tumbling, eyes searching. “To walk.” Taking a hesitant step toward me, she smiled softly. “Want to walk with me?”

“What I want is for you to get off my property.”

Her smile warmed instead of cooled. “Can I walk on it first? Then I’ll get off it.”

I couldn’t understand her. Was she joking with me? Teasing? Being plain exasperating? Crossing my arms, I raised my chin. “Walking it would take hours. It’s big.”

The new PR girl whom they’ve hired to change his image, she’s the star of all his dreams, but there’s one tiny little problem … she can’t stand him and all of his player ways.

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. 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…
