Blurb

Dear Diary,

I might have gotten myself into a wee bit of trouble – and I’m not talking about the “court mandated community service”, or “therapy sessions from bashing a bloke in the head” kind of trouble.

I wish it were that simple.

Nope. I’m talking about the “falling in love with one of my client’s daughters”, kind of trouble…The kind of problem I can’t talk my way out of when the truth gets out.

How I ended up with her phone is a long story – and when she called to get it back, I took things a bit too far. One innocent exchange wound up leading to so much more.

Fun, new, and totally immune to my charm, Sutton is different. And I had no idea she was the daughter of Foster Green.

Blame it on the dark colored stout running through my veins, pushing me toward one bad decision after another. Pushing me toward her even though I know right from wrong; even though she’s my client’s daughter.

Dating her might be the best or worst decision I’ve ever made. Only time, whiskey, and one more roll around the mattress with her will tell.

My Review

Lies destroy lives. They break trust. They paint a picture that isn’t reality.

And, unknowingly, this is Betty Dawsey’s life in Kylie Scott’s newest release, LIES, and while after hearing the truth of who her fiancé truly is, she might reconsider wanting the truth because her life literally explodes and she’s left figuring out how to stay alive while also dealing with all the lies that are revealed about the man she thought she knew.

The fact that Betty’s once boring and average Thom turns out to be someone else entirely does a number on her head and her heart is completely understandable, and the maelstrom of feelings that she has to sort through when everything is revealed can’t be an easy feat, especially when her life continues to be threatened and the one person she’s supposed to trust has just been found to be a liar. I would be just as upset with not only the lies but also with the reason Thom chose her as part of his cover story. I credit her for wanting to change the dynamics of her life at the beginning of the story because she doesn’t seem to be a priority to Thom, and I also like the fact that she was strong and came through when it mattered most.

I have to be honest…I couldn’t get a read on Thom for most of the story. I understand the need to live a double life, but I didn’t like how he made Betty feel like she didn’t matter. It’s clear that he has a certain skillset that makes him an excellent covert operative, but it’s his personal life that needs some work, but if Thom can keep himself and Betty alive, they just might stand a chance because as the saying goes, there is always some truth in lies, and when it comes to how he sees Betty and wants to protect her just might win her back.

Amidst trying to work through Betty’s feelings of betrayal as well as her truly learning who her fiancé is and why he’s been living a lie, professionally, Thom is in even more danger than his fiancee’s wrath because there’s a double-agent among his team and if he can’t stop this person from picking off his team one by one, he may not have a chance to make amends.

There is  suspense and action involved in every part of the story line, which keeps the plot moving forward as a steady pace. Betty and Thom’s relationship is quite a slow burn, but it makes sense given the circumstances and what he’s willing to do to keep his fiancee safe.

I enjoyed Kylie Scott’s romantic suspense; it’s not the author’s typical type of story, but I love authors who step outside their usual writing bubble and show just how multifaceted they are as writers.

4 Poison Apples

Excerpt

“You’re going to break his heart.”

“No, I’m not,” I say. “That’s sort of the whole point. If I really thought leaving him would break his heart, then I probably wouldn’t be leaving him in the first place.”

My best friend, Jen, does not look convinced.

Boxes fill a good half of the room. What a mess. Who knew you could accumulate so much junk in only twelve months? At least we weren’t together so long that I can’t remember who owns what. One year is about the sweet spot for this issue in relationships, apparently.

“The fact of the matter is, we’re not in love. We have no business being engaged, let alone getting married.” I sigh. “Have you seen the packing tape?”

“No. He’s just such a nice guy.”

“I’m not debating that.” I climb to my feet, then head up the stairs to the second bedroom. Thom’s unofficial workout room/home office. Not a room I normally go into. But it only takes a bit of rummaging to find what I’m looking for. Whatever else might be said about them, insurance assessors are organized. The bottom drawer of Thom’s desk has a neat stash of stationery. I grab a couple rolls of thick tape.

“And leaving him this way…” Jen continues as I head back down.

“How many times have I told him we need to talk? He’s always putting it off, saying it’s not a good time. And now he’s away again. I’ve been messaging him for the last week and he barely replies.”

“You know he has to drop everything once a job comes up. I realize he’s not the most exciting guy, Betty, but—”

“I know.” I smack down a line of tape with extra zest, sealing the lid of the last box. In this Operation Abandon Ship Posthaste, I know I’m definitely slightly the bad guy. But not totally. Say sixty/forty. Or maybe seventy/thirty. It’s hard to tell to what degree. “I do know all of that. But he’s always busy with work or away on some business trip. What am I supposed to do?”

A sigh from Jen.

“When you realize you’ve made such a monumental mistake, it’s hard to sit and wait to fix things. Nor is it fair on either of us to keep up the pretense.”

“Guess so.”

“And the fact that he’s yet again made no effort to prioritize our relationship and make a little time for me in his busy schedule is just further proof that I’ve made the right choice in ending this now before it gets any more complicated. End of rant.”

Nothing from her.

“Anyway, you’re supposed to be on my side. Stop questioning me.”

“You wanted to get married and have children so badly.”

“Yeah.” I sit back on my heels. “I blame it all on playing with Ken and Barbie’s dreamhouse when I was little. But it turns out that being in a relationship with the wrong person can be even lonelier than being alone.”

Jen and I have been friends since sharing a room in college. We’ve witnessed the bulk of each other’s dating ups and downs. For some reason, I’m the type of girl who guys will go out with, but don’t tend to stick with. Apparently, I’m fuckable—just not girlfriend material. Maybe it’s my smart mouth. Maybe it’s the whole not fitting current societal expectations of beauty i.e. I’m fat. Maybe I was born under an unlucky star. I don’t know; it’s their loss. Like anyone, I have my faults, but all in all, I’m awesome. And I have a lot to give. Too often in the past few months, I’ve had to keep reminding myself of this fact.

“There are just so many jerks out there,” Jen says. “I was happy that you’d found a good one.”

“I think I’d prefer a jerk who was genuinely into me than a nice guy phoning it in.

Honestly, I’d rather go adopt a dozen cats and settle into old age and isolation than be with someone who treats me as if I’m an afterthought.”

She looks at me for a long moment, then nods slowly. “I’m sorry it didn’t work out.”

“Me too.”

“Time to start filling up the cars. Boy, do you owe me.”

I smile. “That I do.”

Jen stands and stretches before picking up one of the boxes labeled kitchen. “I just didn’t want you to do something you’d regret, you know?”

“I know. Thank you.”

Alone in the two-bedroom condo, everything is silent. My parting letter sits waiting on the coffee table with his name written on the front. A slight bulge in the envelope betrays the shape of my engagement ring. It’s a sweet, simple ring. One small diamond perched on a band of yellow gold. My hand feels wrong without it. Naked. They say there are different love languages and you have to take the time to learn your partner’s needs. It’s like he and I never quite got there. Or maybe I’m just crappy at relationships.

The bridal magazines I’d collected are in the trash. Perhaps I should have taken them into the florist shop where I work so someone could get some use out of them. But this feels more symbolic, more definite. My family are a couple of states away, and I have only a few of what I’d classify as good friends. Being an introvert makes it hard to meet people. A boyfriend, a husband, would mean I’m no longer alone. Someone cares about me and puts me first. At least part of the time. Only Thom doesn’t any of the time, so here we are.

I tighten my ponytail of long dark hair. Then, in a rare display of dexterity that my yoga instructor would be proud of, I stack three boxes in my arms and head outside into the hot afternoon sun. Jen’s Honda Civic is parked at the curb, the trunk standing open as she moves things about inside. My old Subaru sits in the driveway waiting to be filled. Birds are singing and insects chirping. It’s your typical mild autumn day in California.

That’s when the condo blows up behind me.

AUDIO REVIEW: DAX by Sawyer Bennett

Dax (Arizona Vengeance, Book #4)

Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: July 9, 2019

The Arizona Vengeance is killing it on the ice. But one player can’t seem to keep his eye on the puck—all thanks to the woman he just married to save her life.

My name is Dax Monahan and hockey is my passion. And if you want to succeed in this sport you have to bust your ass 24/7. I’ve never had a hard time focusing on my career, but when my past comes knocking, no amount of training can prepare me for what lies on the other side of the door.

Regan Miles was always like a sister to me. When a shared tragedy brings us face to face after several years, I’m shocked to see just how much she’s changed. Gone is the shy, awkward little girl that always used to chase me and her brother around. Instead, I’m faced with a gorgeous woman who makes it damn hard to concentrate on anything but her.

Turns out, she’s in trouble, and the only way out is to get married.

I surprise myself when I tell her to marry me. Order her, actually. And most shocking of all, she doesn’t even hesitate before saying yes.

So it’s settled. We’re getting hitched and she’s moving to Arizona with me. All platonic, of course.

The catch?

I never knew I’d fall so hard for my best friend’s little sister.

My Review

Readers familiar with Sawyer Bennett’s Arizona Vengeance, who have been with the the players and the author since Bishop was released know quite a bit about Bennett’s newest leading man, Dax Monahan. In fact, because Dax and Regan’s story occurs pretty much concurrently with Legend and Pepper’s book, some of the groundwork has already been laid when it comes to how Dax finds himself a married man and what his future could potentially look like if he has anything to say about it.

Despite Dax’s player status, once he committed himself to helping Regan and then started to understand that she was no longer a little girl or Vance’s younger sister, but a beautiful woman who has had more heartache than a woman her age should have to deal with, so if he can make things easier on her, support her in the ways that she needs, he can honor Regan’s brother while perhaps realizing he is, in fact, husband material.

Regan’s a fighter; she’s had to be since her teens when she lost both of her parents, but now she’s truly fighting for her life, and while she’s used to doing things on her own and feeling the loneliness that comes along with not being surrounded by family who love her, but that’s no longer the case, and while Dax may be a bit too alpha and domineering at times, it’s clear that she’ll never have to worry with him by her side.

The progression of Dax and Regan’s relationship – from family friends to husband and wife to lovers to something both exhilarating and confusing – at times, seems seamless, even though the marriage is supposed to be fake because it’s clear that deep feelings exist between these two; they just need the courage to see where their new feelings will take them.

Dax and Regan’s book not only focuses on witnessing these two acclimate to their new normal, to their new feelings for each other, to their way of coping with the changes as Dax works to understand what he wants and needs as a man and as a husband, but readers also gain a deeper understanding of just how much Tacker continues to struggle with grief and guilt and what hitting rock bottom means for the captain of the Vengeance.

I appreciate the fact that Sawyer Bennett didn’t add anymore unnecessary drama to what is already an overwhelming situation for both Regan and Dax as well as the Arizona Vengeance, and while I was frustrated and disheartened at times, I knew that even though everything didn’t follow a linear path and there were far reaching obstacles, Dax and Regan knew that the struggle was worth it if it meant that they could be the couple they were meant to be.

Aiden Snow and Virginia Rose were fantastic narrators; they voiced Dax and Regan’s perspectives with passion, conveying the emotions of the hero and heroine and providing a voice to everything the characters were thinking throughout the course of the story.

TEASER REVEAL: FEAST OF SPARKS by Sierra Simone

FEAST OF SPARKS (Thorchapel #2) by Sierra Simone

Release Date: August 1st

Cover Designer: Hang Le

Photographer: Regina Wamba

Add to Goodreads:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/44434266-feast-of-sparks

Blurb

I’m an outcast and a loner, named for death itself. Fate wasn’t supposed to have plans for me.

But then she came back—the girl I once kissed in a thorn-covered chapel in the woods. She came back, and I could no more resist her than I could pry out my own heart. And by some trick of fate, she wants me as much as I want her. The only problem? She also wants the man who owns Thornchapel, Auden Guest.

And so do I.

Eight years ago, I did something to Auden, something terrible. He hurt me back the only way he knew how, and so here we are: our hatred seasoned with pain and my loneliness seasoned with longing. The only thing we can agree on is Proserpina Markham, and she wants us to find a way to be together—all three of us.

If Auden wants to earn her as his submissive, then he has to earn me as well.

But with the discovery of bones behind the altar and the carnal revel of Beltane fast approaching, it’s becoming clear that Thornchapel’s secrets are much deeper and older than any of us could have ever guessed. And no matter how bright and merry a feast of sparks may be, it’s always followed by ashes.

And darkness.

RELEASE REVIEW: FILTHY LIES by Alessandra Torre

Synopsis

Would you tell your husband everything?

Every torrid thought? Every twisted fantasy? The forbidden images that slink into your mind in your most vulnerable moments?

I shouldn’t have. I hesitated to. But I did.

And my husband? He gave them all to me.

Amazon Purchase Link: https://smarturl.it/FilthyVows

My Review

I don’t think I’ve ever read a love story about a married couple quite like the one that Alessandra Torre just released. In some ways, it feels like a marriage case study, analyzing and illustrating the evolvement of Easton and Elle’s relationship, taking readers back to the couples’ beginning and then focusing on their present struggles as well as delving into Elle’s sexual desires and what they meant for their marriage and their future.

I will admit that it took me a bit to get into the story, partly because I couldn’t see the connection of the title to the content presented early on but also because even though I understood why the flashbacks needed to occur, it slowed the plot line now a bit, leaving me impatient to get to the heart of the story’s conflict.

Every time I read an Alessandra Torre romance, I’m never quite sure the path the story will take or the dynamics that she’ll put into play when it comes the main characters’ journey. And while there were typical marital issues that Easton and Elle needed to contend with, especially their individual insecurities, it was beyond clear that love and passion were not concerns for these two, but that didn’t mean they had the perfect marriage; it just meant that they were willing to work, willing to communicate, willing to compromise in order to stay together.

By the time I reached the end of Easton and Elle’s story, I felt like there was more to tell about these two and where their lives together were headed, so I’m hoping that the whispers of a follow-up are true and that Torre plans to continue examining their marriage and perhaps even give the supporting characters their own story, offering further details about who they are and how their relationships work.   

Filthy Vows is an intriguing and sexy story that allows readers an intimate look into the ups and downs and highs and lows of a marriage, illustrating that even a solid marriage can have its issues, but as long as honesty takes precedence and they’re both willing to give and take and give their partner their heart’s desire, any obstacle can be overcome and even the deepest desires can be told and maybe even explored.

REVIEW: Cupids Anonymous by Lila Monroe

Blurb

“Rule #1: Don’t get hit by your own arrow…”

Readers around the world are raving over USA Today bestselling author Lila Monroe’s hilarious romantic comedies. Now fall in love with her brand new sizzling standalone – perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Christina Lauren!

Poppy Hathaway is a professional Cyrano – minus the honking great nose. Need a love note, raunchy sext, or apology letter so epic that your other half will forget you hesitated a beat too long when you asked, ‘does this make me look fat?’? She’s got you covered. But when her most frequent client, the annoyingly charming (or is that charmingly annoying?) Dylan Griffin comes to her with an unconventional new job, Poppy discovers that three little words can add up to one big complication.

Because Dylan doesn’t want help seducing another swimsuit model (for once in his life). He wants Poppy’s help winning over her his high-school crush (aka, his one true love) – and he’s prepared to make it worth her while. Throw in a summer Catskills trip that’s equal parts ‘Dirty Dancing’ and dirty-talking, and this Cupid is soon out of her depth – and head over heels with the last man she expected. But can she find the right words when it comes to her own heart? Or will this happily ever end in disaster?

Find out in the sparkling new romantic comedy from Lila Monroe!

My Review

I’m a high school English teacher, so I’m definitely familiar with Cyrano De Bergerac, but in Lila Monroe’s newest release, she modernizes the behind-the-scenes romance whisperer, broadening the different ways that heroine, Poppy Hatahway, can assist her clients in making amends for wrongdoings against those they love or find a way to say the right words that just might give them a second chance with someone they like and perhaps could possibly love.

But with Dylan Griffin’s new request, Poppy’s role changes and she finds herself in quite the non-Cyrano situation, because the more time these two spend together, the more involved their connection becomes, evolving from a professional one to one of friendship to one with a whole lot of sexual tension and a surfacing of feelings that won’t only complicate Poppy’s task, but just might send her spiraling in a way that she never thought she’d find herself in, at least when it came to what she always thought she wanted when it came to a significant other. 

It’s difficult to see what’s truly in front of someone when that person is playing a role to help reunite you with another woman, and that’s exactly what happens to Dylan. Despite his growing connection to Poppy, she still is acting on his behalf for someone else to fall in love with him, so that poses a bit of a problem. But the way Lila Monroe helps Dylan to see just how lovable his quirky and full of life Cyrano truly is forces them both to make a decision about what happens next, which is about so much more than knowing what to say when it comes to love.

Cupids Anonymous is a sweet and funny romcom that makes for a perfect summer read. I definitely had a bit of a girl crush on Poppy and once readers were privy to who Dylan is at his core, I wanted him for Poppy; I just didn’t know how that would happen given what her professional objective was at the beginning of the story, but I sure did enjoy watching it all unfold.
