Review Blast! Fries Before Guys By Lani Lynn Vale


Sometimes people come into a person’s life and make their heart skip a beat.

Those people are called cops.


Well, one cop in particular.


A SWAT officer for the Kilgore Police Department, to be specific.

The first time Avery Flynn saw Derek Roberts, she was photographing him for the first annual Kilgore Police Department SWAT calendar. He was leaned back in his squad car, shirtless, and giving her a smile that was completely between them. A smile that hinted at what he wanted to do to her later.

When she scrounges up the courage to ask him out after the photoshoot, he laughs in her face.

Well, screw you, too, Mr. February.

***

Derek Roberts never really paid attention to the photographer.

She was a mousy girl who dressed like a twelve-year-old girl. Her tight leggings, extra baggy Star Trek t-shirt denoting her a Klingon captain, and her surprisingly clean Chucks didn’t leave much of an impression.

Now, the outfit that she was in weeks after he rebuffed her? Yeah, now that caught his attention.

Too bad that happens when he’s trying to save her from what’s sure to be death thanks to an unhinged native Texan who’s convinced she was the reason he lost his last chance at a million dollars.

When he tries to save her, she tells him she’d rather take a cattle prod to the forehead than go anywhere with him.

Challenge. Accepted


Fries Before Guys is the second book in the KPD Swat Generation 2.0 series and I loved it even more than the last book! The depth that Ms. Vale puts into her characters never ceases to amaze me. I loved Derek and Avery, and of course I loved seeing some of our favorite characters from previous books. Avery had to perfect amount of sass, determination and heart that you couldn’t help but love her and Derek, well this sexy man could arrest and frisk me any day of the week and twice on Sundays, he is not only hot and sexy, he is sweet, caring and the perfect match to Avery.

The drama was well balanced and the laugh out loud moments are perfectly timed. The emotions and heartbreak it had was just right. I didn’t want to put Fries Before Guys down for even a moment, I devoured this book in one setting ignoring my family and dogs in the process. I swear this new generation are even hotter than their fathers were and that’s saying a lot because they were hot in their own books.


Fries Before Guys is a book I can easily recommend and hope that you all will love Avery and Derek as much as I did.

Release Blitz! King Of Kings By Betty Shreffler




I told myself I didn’t want her.
Didn’t need her.
But it was all lies.
I craved her touch.
Craved the way her sweet red lips took away the pain.
Yet I knew I couldn’t have her.
Not when my enemies are determined to put a bullet in my back.
They believe the way to get to me is through her.
Coming for her will be their downfall.
As the President of the Kings MC, there’s one thing I’m known for—doing whatever it takes to protect the ones I love.
I’ll fight until I have nothing left to give.
Until she and my family are safe.
I’m not preparing for battle.
I’m preparing to end the war.
My choices might be the death of me.
But if the scars on my body and heart have taught me anything, it’s that love is worth the sacrifice.

I have sat here wondering what to write for this review of King Of Kings, I’m struggling because going in I wanted to really like it but in the end was let down. Was it a bad book? No far from it but at times I felt it dragged on and some of the chapters felt like it was rinse and repeat with what was going on. I am not going to go into some long drawn out review stating every thing I didn’t like, because while at the end of the day I just wasn’t liking the book, I did feel emotional over what Nix had been through and the losses he had. As always form your own opinion because you may enjoy it more than I did.

“What do you want, Nix? To spend the rest of your life wanting, needing but never having happiness?”
Chugging my beer, I stare up at her beautiful hazel-green eyes. Expression bold and challenging, she fuels my desire for her. In the tight, dark red skirt, her creamy thighs taunt me, antagonizing me even more than her words.
“Happiness is a luxury I can’t have. Because of who I am, anyone I care for gets hurt.”
Straddling my legs, she sits on my lap. My hand goes to her @ss, cupping her against me.
“I’m not asking you to love me. I’m offering to satisfy our needs. I’m a big girl. I don’t need you to protect my heart.”
Gaze matching hers, my wall breaks down, diminishing into a pile of rubbish. I want this woman—want to feel her clench around me as I f--k her hard and hear her beg for me to make her come—but I know if I do, I’d be setting myself up for disaster.
“Don’t think, Nix. Just live.”
Soft lips demand me to give in. Tongue slipping between my lips, I taste her, and at that moment, I lose all self-control. A thud sounds as my beer drops to the floor. I don’t care if it’s pouring all over the place, I need her lips on mine. Fingers tucked under her skirt, I raise the fabric, revealing the part of her my c*ck aches to be inside of. Rising to my feet, I drop her legs and spin her. Hand on her back, I bend her over and tug her lacy thong down her thighs.

Release Blitz! Intercepted Hearts By Mika Jolie



The NFL’s hottest quarterback sets his sights on me, he’s the one guy I can’t have.

Hudson Baldwin is a player—in every sense of the term.
The god of the gridiron has no lack of women throwing themselves at him.
Football players have always been on my no-go list.
Just because I have to cheer for him doesn’t mean I want anything to do with his advances.
Yet, here he is...telling me he wants me.
He wants us.
I’m not here to score with the NFL star player.
But the more time I spend with the king of the turf, the more hits my defenses take.
Can the connection between us be real?
Or is believing love can exist in this brutal sport nothing more than a Hail Mary?


Intercepted Hearts was a quick, sexy ad sweet football romance that I really enjoyed. I was quickly drawn into Hudson and Natalie’s story. I loved how Hudson wasn’t your typical 23 year old football star, it was a refreshing change of pace from the usual manwhore ways in a lot of sports romances. Natalie is a temporary cheerleader who does not date football players, but there is a reason why for that.

Fear. That one word can bring so many emotions and feelings. It can cause you to not live life to the fullest, it can cause you to miss out on something or someone who will end up being worth moving past your fears. In Intercepted Hearts, fear plays a part in the story and for a bit I was worried that it would cause Natalie to miss out on what she could have with Hudson.


I am already looking forward to River’s book, and who is River you might ask? Well it is Hudson’s twin brother. Intercepted Hearts is one I can easily say needs to be on your TBR list!

Release Blitz! Power Play By Kennedy L. Mitchell



There’s no turning back. I can’t go home a failure—again. Everyone wants to use me, make me their pawn, but I have other plans. I will win this election or die trying. 

Randi Sawyer
It started with a shady business proposal I should’ve turned down. Now here I am pretending to be someone I’m not, and bonus, I’m at the mercy of a man whose joy comes from my failures. The deeper I sink into DC’s seedy political scene the more I realize I can’t trust anyone if I’m going to make it out alive. Until him. Secret Service agent Trey Benson is bitter, jaded, and oh so hot with his mischievous smirk and cocky attitude. He hates me, just like everyone else, but he might just be who I need to survive this mess I’ve landed myself in.

Trey Benson
Forced onto her protection detail, I’m certain she’s just another Political Barbie in this city. I should know—I’ve dated most of them. Except she’s not. Funny, foulmouthed and crazy as hell, not to mention drop-dead gorgeous, Randi Sawyer just might be the one person who can make a difference in DC—and in me. Too bad the boss says she’s off-limits, that it’s too risky for her career and mine. Good thing I’ve never been great at sticking to orders.

Power Play is the first book in the five book Power Play series. These cannot be read as standalones. All five books follow one main couple’s relationship as it grows through a five year time period. It’s suspenseful, steamy, and oh so unputdownable. If you’re a fan of Tiffany Snow, Brittany Sahin, and Skye Warren then this series is for YOU!

Release Blitz! Chandelier By Annie Dyer



Lovers. Liars. Traitors. Thieves.

We would become all of these.

The first time I meet Isaac, I’m on my knees in front of another man.
The second time, I discover I’m a pawn in our countries’ wager for peace.
A promised princess.
The sister to the heir to a tarnished crown.
A pretty chandelier, born to sparkle, distract.
My country is at war, just like my heart.

Two men. Three sides.

No happy endings.. 



I was surprised how much I was pulled into Chandelier and so quickly. I took time off from reading because of a family emergency so when I came back to reading it was books like Chandelier that I hoped to find. It pulled me into the story and kept me there from beginning to the end. I can’t wait for the next book, I am sitting here almost going though withdrawals because I need more and I need it now. I am purposely not going into a lot of details because I don’t want to spoil anything for you. Just believe me when I say read the book!
