synopsis

One bad hit has left the career of young NHL Center Luke Hudson in question. When he arrives for rehab with a minor league team, his injury has robbed him of the edge that made him great.

Team trainer Adella Price’s job is to help Luke get back in peak condition. But their one on one sessions shake her resolve to remain unattached. Dell is hands-off to all hockey players, even one as charming and successful as Luke.

As Luke starts to get ahold of his game again, he loses his grip on his heart. Helping Luke get his edge back brings to light what Dell is missing from her life. But those who want them apart are relentless, and with their careers on the line, Luke and Dell must decide if their love is worth risking it all.

BOOK SYNOPSIS

It all started with a song.

Roxana Nights was late to another gig, thanks to her first love, and drummer. It’s been years since she left Jordan, but he won’t let her go. Then she hears a voice that pulls her under a spell and changes her whole world.

Trevor Malone just moved to Seattle with his band. Music is his only passion, until he lays eyes on Roxana. He’s never felt anything as strong as the pull to her. Now he needs to find a way to introduce her to his world.

There’s only one problem. A rival clan won’t rest until they’ve taken Trevor’s down. Unwilling to let old grudges die, they target Roxy. Trevor will do anything to keep her safe.

Roxy will find that the world she writes is closer to reality than she ever imagined. She’ll also learn that not all monsters are evil, though some are ruthless.

Will love stay strong when the past comes out? Can they survive the centuries old vendetta?

TOUR-EXCERPT

 

She slipped past him, and onto the wings of the stage. Her gaze fell on Mr. Voice who was tall, dark and smokin’ hot.
Holy shit, I want to lick him.
Scuffed combat boots were laced up over black leather pants that clung to muscular thighs, and his black shirt molded to the most impressive set of abs she had ever seen. Roxy wanted to trace the ridges with her fingertips.
He turned, his voice dropping low as his eyes locked on hers. His words enveloped her. “… you’re the only one.”
Her heart paused a beat before slamming into her chest at a rapid pace. His full mouth lifted into a grin that spoke of confidence as he held her full attention. Entranced, she fell deep into his eyes and the world stopped.
Until a drumstick hit him in the head. He looked over his shoulder and shrugged sheepishly at his drummer before turning back to launch into the next verse.
Mikey gently shook her shoulder. “Hey, Rox, come on. We have to warm up.”
Her head bobbed in a nod at her brother, but she didn’t look over. She muttered, “Yeah, give me a minute,” or longer.
As if he heard, Mr. Voice glanced over and winked at her before the next song started. “Blinded by beauty, falling at first sight, head over heels…” There was raw passion in his voice, and she couldn’t help wishing he was singing about her.

 3.5 Rose of Writing Rave

I have read all of the Others of Edenton novels thus far. The others I could not put down. They held my attention and  I could not wait to see what would happen next. This one it took longer to get into. Was still a good story, just did not hold my rapt attention as it seemed to take longer to get to any romance or thrilling danger.

Once the romance started  it did not stop. Even though it took a while in the novel for romance to happen, then it happened FAST!!! And was so sexy and smokin’ HOT!!! Readers you will SWOON over Trevor. He is HOT, sweet, thoughtful, and knows exactly what he is doing when it comes to romance.

But then one month before his planned wedding to Riley, Cameron looks outside and sees Hope in the pouring rain, watching him. Now, three years later, Cam has one day – a sick day on this last Friday of summer – to convince the one woman whose very existence breaths life into his lungs, that sometimes love like theirs actually does exist, and it’s that kind of love that lives forever, no matter how hard you fight to forget about it and move on. From the author of non friction and Hope, Sick Day follows one man’s day-long attempt to persuade the love of his life that sometimes it’s okay to break promises if it means keeping the ones that count.

5 – Roses – Romantic Love Story – Creative Unique Writing

I’m sure we have all had days where we want to play hooky, our physical beings are unable to go on, or maybe our emotional psyche is just in ruins.  In this creative story we find sometimes love is the common denominator that filters into a blood stream and takes control of emotional and physical functions.  Sometimes one cannot sleep, the mind continues to dredge up memories of past encounters.  One cannot eat for our bodies are full of emotional turmoil and yet somewhat empty for want of more… what could have been… what could be…

5 – Hearts – Devoted Couples – Love

Cameron is engaged to married, he has a unfulfilling job, he is lost, confused and desperate to fill a void he is missing in life.  Years ago he chose to walk away from a promise he once gave to his college love, his one true love, the one that got away, the woman he chose to let go and walk away from.  Desperate to find this missing piece of his life he decides to take drastic measures and take a Sick Day from work to conquer a heart worth living for.

~Cameron:  “I can’t have two halves of one life.  One that belongs exclusively to you, and the other that belongs to the hope of replacing you.  I can’t… exist without you.”

Hope McManus thinks she is stable enough in life where she came move on and settle down with someone she might be able to settle for.  She finds she must have Closure from her past with the only man she ever loved in order to end this unsettled feeling.

~Hope:  “I came here to find you, Cameron, but if you don’t tell me why you disappeared, you’ll never see me again.  I can’t keep beating myself up over this.”

3 Tears – Emotional Drama

The emotional drama the author weaves in this romantic tale of woe and passion is enough to have hearts pumping and nerves are forever frayed.  The author writes in detail about how the thoughts and feelings of each character are portrayed, the scenery around them is described almost as if you were there… in the park, at a candlelight dinner, on a beautiful yacht and falling in love all over again.

3 – Lips –  Hungry Love-Making

The spice we find in between the sheets in this romantic love story is exactly what we would want to explore when two people come together and share their souls.  The turmoil was evident when their touches consumed them, their past collided when their lips savored each others and their bodies connected when their desires took control.

My middle finger massaged her clit before reaching even farther south and dipping into her, just a shallow taste on my fingertip.

We kissed hard, lost in the thrusts, my hands gripping hers so fiercely that my fingers went numb.

Watching her, feeling her come against me.. it spelled my end as well.

Will this long ago promise survive the test of time.  Will these long ago lovers reconnect.  Will love last.  Let’s find out in this drama filled romantic tale of passion, woe and LOVE reunited.

Thank you Morgan Parker!

4 – romance + HEA

Over the years Kendal has blossomed into a beautiful, confidant woman, she oozes sex appeal and now that she has had a Rock Star’s baby, she has grown into a nurturing and protective mother.  Only one thing is missing, the baby daddy, her light, her love, her dream and her family.  They finally connect again and the visions she has of a complete family are coming to fruition. 

“Could everyone really just forgive me like they are?  I don’t forgive myself.” ~Kendal

The tenacity Jax continued to strive for has finally paid off in his success of building a famous rock band, DECOY.   His dream has finally became a reality and now that his long lost love had finally reconnected with him, he finds even more than he thought possible.  He has a son, a little rock-star mini-me, he struggles to overcome the pain and betrayal he feels for Kendal for keeping this secret and joy from his life for years.

“I’m so happy to find you Kendal.  You gave me the best present a man could get.  You and Finley are my life now.”  ~Jax

4 hearts – lovers + friends = family

These two fight hard for their relationship and you clearly see the pain, confusion, and anxiety they each feel when thoughts of the past interrupt their family future.  Kendal continues to feel guilty about her decision of keeping little Finley a secret from Jax.  They took things slowly this time as they build a solid relationship.

Reading how Finley and Jax’s relationship grew, watching Finley wanting to emulate his dad, and watching Jax realizing that his dream of having his own little family becoming a reality is very emotional and touching.

“The way Finley looks at me makes me feel like I’m the best man in the world.” ~Jax

4 scorching lips – spicy reads

Oh yes, this little Yum-o-licious story has hit on all the hot spots in a fantastic erotic touch me, feel me, and love me read.  The steamy little scenes were implemented in exactly the right places.  The buildup the author gave them had me re-reading over and over.

“Yes, I can feel him alright.  He’s making my whole body quiver as he plays me like his guitar.”

With every pump, slam and growl Jax brings my body closer to the edge.

We have spent every night together, we have enjoyed the bed, floor, wall and my shower very, very much.

2

In the end I found the Decoy Series a very satisfying read.  This is the kind of Rocker – Romance I find I must need to add to my collection of an HEA erotic romance list.

Thank you T.K. Fisher!  Can’t wait for Rockstar’s Angel and to see what’s happening in Tanya’s and Leo’s love affair.

2 Roses – Romance

Honestly this book is not one for the romance shelf, instead it’s a warming tale that consisted of building friendships and coming to terms with one’s decisions in life.

Kendal made a haunting decision 4 years ago that will eventually impact not only her life but the lives of her son and her baby daddy’s to.  The consequences of this decision later leaves her feeling guilty and unable to move forward.   She still loves him, her first.. her only true love.

Jax is left devastated at Kendal’s decision to end their passionate love affair of nearly 2 years and the closure that he needs to move on never came to pass.  Although he made it big and is riding high on his Rock Star status he is left unfulfilled and empty inside.  He misses her, his one and only love, the one that got away.

374a03f20b1f085b0768843e518b29af[1]

3 – Hearts for Friends

Friendships are depicted in detail and their loyalty to each other is very touching.  Kendal’s friends literally have her back as they travel with her through her journey of grief and pain.  It’s very refreshing to find her ‘boyfriends’ portrayed more as her ‘brothers’ instead of lusting after her,  they continue to protect her and I admire that old school charm the author gives them.

5bebe77ba5120f3ff6165075f81ff7d7[1]

Finley was very sweet in this story and I can’t wait to read more about him.  His innocence is enough to tug at my heartstrings and I cannot wait to see if and when he meets his Rock-Star Daddy.  I have mixed emotions about how Kendal handled this defining moment in her life, although I see her point in the decision, I also see how this affects Jax’s life.  She later sees the error of her ways now that Finley is growing up without his father in his young life.

Will Kendal and Jax find their HEA?  Will they ever come together as a family?  I can’t wait to find out in Rockstar’s Girl!

Review – Rockstar’s Valentine by K.T. Fisher

A Rockstar’s Valentine

(Decoy Prequel)

by K.T. Fisher

20616657[2]

Synopsis

Before we had Rockstar Daddy, there was A Rockstar’s Valentine…….

As soon as I set eyes on the gorgeous guy who saves me from having to dance with yet another jerk, I thought he would be just like the rest. His bad boy rocker image definitely screamed heart breaker, but I was wrong. Boy was I wrong! Yes, Jax can sometimes act like a caveman but he’s different than the rest and I can’t seem to forget about him. Not that he will give me the chance to forget about him! But why would someone like Jax, who has more than enough experience be interested in a little virgin like me? I thought for sure he was a heartless player when I first met him but I quickly figured out that wasn’t the case at all.

As soon as I spot the sexy little red head walk in, I’ve already laid her down and claimed her. Now it’s just getting her to realize that, along with all the fuckers who seem to be eye balling her. I soon find out that Kendal is addictive and I need to have my fill of her regularly. How a man before me has never gone that far and claimed Kendal for himself before is beyond me but thank fuck they haven’t because Kendal will be completely mine.

Review – Back Up by A. M. Madden

Back Up

by A. M. Madden

18809474[1]

Synopsis

Leila Marino’s biggest dream is to become a rock star. A lucky opportunity has her auditioning with an up & coming rock band named Devil’s Lair. The band hires Leila as their back-up singer, signing her up for months in the studio and touring on the road with the sexy bunch.

Jack is the quintessential rock star…gorgeous…sexy…a walking orgasm. Jack Lair is the lead singer of Devil’s Lair and his dreams are becoming reality as his band climbs the ladder of success. He’s living the perfect life, and enjoying every minute of it. With a steady stream of sexual conquests that satisfies his raging libido, he thinks he has all he needs in life…until Leila enters it.

Jack is not prepared for the sudden pull he feels towards Leila, and struggles daily to deny his attraction is anything more. Leila finds falling for her new boss is constant torment. Both convince themselves friendship is their only option.

An intimate moment causes their willpower to collapse, and their erotic love affair to begin. Finding love was a bonus that neither Jack nor Leila anticipated. As they begin their tour together professionally and personally, life couldn’t be any better for the couple. Until a mistake from Jack’s past threatens their new relationship, and their perfect future together.

5 Rock-Star Roses – Romance

Starting this story I was immediately skeptical, I thought what am I doing reading another Rock-Star romance.  Thank goodness I kept reading, this is not a typical run of the mill, trending Rock Star Love Story.  This was an intense emotional build-up of friends becoming lovers.  The commentary from the band members and friends were hilarious, sweet and charming enough to keep me burning through the chapters.

5d054720cc41220be9d0fa21f58eff57[1]

5 hearts – Friends becoming Lovers

The sexual angst between these two kept me enthralled, I desperately wanted these two to connect at once.  I’m pleased that they did not immediately fall into bed with one another at first glance.  Instead it was a slow build up of friendship and respect between one another, the ‘getting to know each other’, phase was smart, clever and witty.

Who would have thought Jack Lair a totally hawt hunk-a-rock-star would have smarts, I mean, a man-whore with a brain?   Loved it! This talented and sexy artist thinks he has it all, groupies, parties, success… until he meets a little spitfire of a back-up singer that rocks him off his game.

Then we have sexy career minded Leila Marino, extremely talented in her vocal abilities and driven to succeed.  Her one shot at stardom appears in the up and coming rock band, Devil’s Lair.  She’s always had a little thing and a big old crush on his holy hawtness and prepares to defend her feelings while holding back her sex starved cravings.

This book had me licking my lips until they were chapped with all its sexual tension and the steamy, erotic love scenes had me squirming around in my seat.  The emotional feelings this couple showed in every touch and kiss they shared was enough to have me dreaming of my own Mr. Sandman.

All in all this was a fantastic read and I found the friendship to lovers buildup was very gratifying.  In the end I found getting to know one another and building a solid foundation of respect is the only way to grow together and learn to love one another.  Insta-Love in the real world might be possible but is just not realistic and frankly does not last.  Instead we read about a kinship of friends building a refreshing tale of a love that last till the end of time.

Thank you A. M. Madden.

3.5 Rosebuds of Writing Raves

This reviewer gives the author a thumbs up for coming right out letting the reader know that the ending will be a cliff hanger. The story itself is incredible! I would have rated it a 4.0 if not for some of the grammar. For example, Rocky Road ice cream was spelled, Rocky Rode several times. Though I did enjoy that Webb wrote using Kentucky dialect, dropping the g on words like, mornin’, and ya for you.  It really places the reader directly in the novel, in Kentucky, right in the middle of the action. This reviewer also is happy to see a new romance theme from all the rock stars, billionaires, and MC romance reads. The descriptions in the scenes show realism in how a coal mine runs, and how dangerous, dirty, and physical the job is. In reading, I began to wonder what a ‘Pinner’ was? So I even took time from reading the novel to do a little research.

Here is an article from a coal mining blog that provides a good understanding of what the Pinner’s job is underground in the mine. There are pictures on the Mantrip, and a couple of miners pinning and bolting . Showing just how physical, dangerous, and what space they have to move and work in.

3.0 Teardrops

From the first of the book to middle ways in the novel  this reviewer had to have the tissue handy. The heroine, Carly Jo just does not have the best luck in life. At least at the part where we meet her, not long after high school graduation. Until then life had its ups and downs, but were more manageable. But readers you will see that Carly Jo is a strong independent woman who can look after herself, even if her temper sometimes gets the better of her. With that same temper leading her decisions, whether for good or bad…

The characters have a lot of innuendo between and about one another, especially between Colton  and Carly Jo.

Both Luke and Colton are Hot Hunks!!!  It would be hard to choose between them…

Colton is very ALPHA, DOMINANT, and CONTROLLING!

The HEAT between Colton an Carly Jo will steam up your Kindle…

Review – Crashed by K. Bromberg

The Driven Trilogy

by K. Bromberg

17880714[2]

Synopsis

When life crashes down around us, how hard are we willing to fight for the one thing we can’t live without, each other?

Life is full of moments.
Big moments.
Little moments.
And none of them are inconsequential.
Every single moment prepares you for that one instance that defines your life. You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything.

Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete. Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. Hell yes, she’s worth the fight…but how do you fight for someone you know you don’t deserve?

Love is full of ups and downs.
Heart stopping highs.
Soul shattering lows.
And none of them are insignificant.
Love is a racecourse of unexpected twists and turns that must be negotiated. You have to break down walls, learn to trust, and heal from your past in order to win. But sometimes it’s the expected that’s the hardest to hold on to.

Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love’s not predictable nor perfect—it’s bent. And bent’s okay. But when outside factors put our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he’s worth the fight?

Whoever said love is patient and love is kind, never met the two of us. We know our love is worth it—have acknowledged that we were meant to be—but when our pasts crash into our future, will the repercussions make us stronger or break us apart?

4 roses emotional romance + overall versatile writing

This is the third and final installment to the driven series and what an intense emotional roller-coaster of a ride.  This book leaves off right where the second one ended with a WOW of a Son of a – Cliffhanger doozy.  I felt everything very intensely, all the emotion, all the drama, all the angst, and all the love in every word written.  This couple shows how the healing power of love stands the test of all times.

“Relationships aren’t easy.  They’re hard and can be brutal at times… but those are the times you learn the most about yourself.  And when they’re right, they can be like coming home… finding the rest of your soul…”

4 heart-throbbing forever hearts couples in love.

Colton Donavan wakes up in the hospital after his near fatal crash in crippling pain and despair, his body isn’t functioning properly and his memories are few and far between, causing confusion in the edges of his subconscious and disjointed memories flicker through his mind.

Rylee is in near hysteria and numb from the soul from watching the horrific crash nearly take her lover, she is blaming herself for fighting and staying up late with him the night before the race.  She is having flashbacks about her own near fatal accident that took her ex-fiancée, Max and her babyher joy, and her hope.

Rylee nurses Colton back to life but it was not easy, she had the strength to fight, for him, for a relationship, for hope, for a future, for their love.  Colton struggled to heal himself, he fought for her love, and in the end he healed her to.

4 emotional teardrops.

Throughout the emotional turmoil and gut-wrenching drama their family and friends were there for them and their support brought unbridled tears to my eyes.  Beckett was a solid rock and the foundation of support for them throughout the story, always cheering them on, always pushing Colton to see more, feel more and be more for Rylee.  Colton’s father Andy had me in tears with his paternal love and his words will be forever etched in my mind:

“The first time I saw him, he broke my heart and stole it all with one, single look.”

“Hurting is feeling and feeling is living, and isn’t it good to be alive?” 

Colton finally opens up his vaulted secrets and lets all his nightmares come to fruition in his one chance at claiming and loving Rylee for his own.  We finally see what kind of emotional scars impact his soul and creates such heavy baggage he must carry throughout his life.  As he shares his past of atrocious acts with Rylee you can clearly see how amazing this heroine truly is.  Smart, strong, perceptive, and very understanding to Colton’s every need.  Sure they stumbled a bit or quite a lot, they were beaten down, built themselves back up and always, always fought for their love.

This is love.  Me and him, making it work.  One being strong when the other is weak.  Thinking of the other first when they know their partner is going to feel pain.

Colton: “You are most definitely the fucking saint I don’t deserve.”

Rylee:  “Every sinner needs a saint to balance them out.”

5 wham-bam, thank you, may I have another! scorching hot kisses Hot-deleicious sex scenes.

Wow this book did not scrimp on the scorching hot love scenes, they were emotional, sexy, mind-blowing, lip biting, and panty dropping Yum-O-scrumpcious!  This author knows how to write a sex scene.  They clearly connect the two characters with emotion in vivid detail.  It was also a very integral part of the storyline and used to enhance the chemistry between them and show the healing power of love they portray to one another and it only made them better, stronger and united them in a long lasting love.

Quotes:

The only reason to kick a man like him out of bed would be to fuck him on the floor.

Never look down on a man unless he’s between your legs.

Never disturb a man when he’s eating at the Y.

In closing this was a fantastic finale full of angst, hope, healing, tears, laughter, friendship, family, and most of all LOVE.  Colton and Rylee deserve their HEA and a love of all time.  This series will go down in history as a romance hall of famer.

Review – Fueled by K. Bromberg

The Driven Trilogy

by K. Bromberg

17880708[1]

Synopsis

What happens when the one person you never expected suddenly happens to be the one you’ll fight the hardest to keep?

Colton stole my heart. He wasn’t supposed to, and I sure as hell didn’t want him to, but he crashed into my life, ignited feelings within me that I thought had died forever, and fueled a passion that I never knew could exist.

Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet and into my life. Now I don’t think I’ll ever be the same. She’s seen glimpses of the darkness within me, and yet she’s still here. Still fighting for me. She is without a doubt the saint, and I am most definitely the sinner.

How is it the one thing neither of us wanted—neither of us anticipated that fateful night—has us fighting so hard to keep?

He steals my breath, stops my heart, and brings me back to life again all in a split second of time. But how can I love a man who won’t let me in? Who continually pushes me away to prevent me from seeing the damaged secrets in his past? My heart has fallen, but patience and forgiveness can only go so far.

How can I desire a woman who unnerves me, defies me, and forces me to see that in the deep, black abyss of my soul there’s someone worthy of her love? A place and person I swore I’d never be again. Her selfless heart and sexy body deserve so much more than I’ll ever be capable of giving her. I know I can’t be what she needs, so why can’t I just let her go?

We are driven by need and fueled with desire, but is that enough for us to crash into love?

5 romance roses!

This is the second book in the Driven Series and in this one we read more about the dark, heavy baggage Colton Donavan carries with him about his secretive tortured past.  We see the lines of communication between Colton and Rylee open up in small increments even as their love and lust grows by leaps and bounds.

“She pushes me, unmans me, consumes me, scares the ever-loving shit out of me.

You clearly see the push and pull feelings Colton continues to carry for Rylee as he struggles to fight against his dark memories and hold on to the one thing that keeps him sane and hopeful of a future with her.  To him the definition of the word Love means something totally different to him and the way he was raised to believe.

5  hearts – couples falling hard

Rylee is still the wonderful, selfless, giving, strong and tenacious beautiful woman she was in Driven.  You have to admire the way she never gives up in her fight for Colton’s love and the future she sees with him.  The way she gives herself whole heartedly to those in need and to those she believes in and loves, this is what makes me want to be a better person.

“Fight Colton!  For you.  For us.  For me.  You don’t get to pull away from me.  You don’t get to walk away without a second thought.  I matter, Colton.  I deserve the same more than you do.  What we have is not inconsequential.

5 hot-o-licious steamy sex scene lips.

And OMG!  Let me just say the Lust Scenes in this sexy sizzling romance were of the charts panty melting, drool dripping, heart thumping, lip smacking, scorching hot.  Honestly, I licked my lips so raw I had to find my extra stash of carmex just to get through them.  Colton is so very charming and dirty.  Ha!

12ccd369b14ef1045c8810eb398556a0[1]

5 tear-em-up tears.

The most favorite and memorable parts in this story were the little boys living in the group home Rylee create for them.   You get a glimpse into their lives and pasts and really start feeling the heartache a pain each one of them lived through.  You see how Colton relates to them and soothes their suffering with words of encouragement and shows them how to handle vivid memories and horrid dreams by sharing his own way of handling these atrocious acts.

Spiderman, Bateman, Superman, Ironman.

In the end you get an overall understanding to what drives us all to succeed in our lives.  The continued fight for what is right, to stand up for others and yourself, to believe in Love, to strive to be a better person, to open up communication lines, and the tenacity to achieve your goals.

Thank you K. Bromberg, by far my most favorite of the series!
