*Release Blitz* Second Shot With #76 by Piper Rayne

Second Shot with #76 by Piper Rayne is now live!

My mom always said you don’t get a second shot at making a first impression. I’ve remembered that my entire career. Especially since I’m one of the few black men who play professional hockey.

I’m calculated and respectful in the way I speak to my coaches, the owners, and the media. I’ve never taken a risk… until her.

I could blame it on the fact that for once I pushed away the pressure of my career for the ocean waves, the sand, and good times with my new teammates. But those are excuses because the minute I saw her at the airport, something lit up inside me and the best week of my life was spent with her in my bed.

After our week in paradise, we said goodbye, exchanged phone numbers and both assumed that unless one of us was flying through the other’s city on the opposite side of the country, our vacation fling was over.

Then one night after practice I see her. She’s here. In my city. Telling me she moved here for a job. If that’s not fate tell me what is.

I’ve never wanted a second shot more than I do this time, but she’s determined to leave what we were on the island we left behind.

Dream Maker by Stacey Lynn is now live!

Hooking up with my best friend’s little sister is one thing, getting drunk and marrying her in Vegas is another…

My team just won the Stanley Cup. I should be out on the town celebrating. Instead, I’m nursing a broken heart, courtesy of my ex-wife.

*Release Blitz/Review* Sneaking Around With #34 (Hockey Hotties #4) by Piper Rayne

Sneaking Around With #34 by Piper Rayne is now live!

I have a reputation for being tight-lipped. You learn quick when you become a professional hockey player to be guarded with the media, so I’ve worked hard to cover up the mistakes of my youth.

But when I’m traded to the Florida Fury, where my ex-best friend is the starting right wing, I’m forced to confront my past. Ford and I have a lot of history, especially when it comes to his little sister, Imogen.

My heart still lurches in my chest when I see her. My hands want to reach out and touch her. My mouth wants to keep apologizing.

She’s the only woman who ever made me want more. But she’s also the one who fell victim to my most regrettable decision.

I’m not a believer in fate, but I must be back in her world for a reason. I’ve fought for everything I’ve gotten and I’m not backing down from what I know will be the best thing in my life.

*Blog Tour/Review* The Assignment by Penelope Ward

 

Title: The Assignment
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 28, 2022
BLURB

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

 

Reasons why I should not be drawn to Troy Serrano.
Number one: He’s obnoxious.
Number two: He and I were enemies over a decade ago in high school.
Number three: He’s my friend’s ex-boyfriend.
I could go on and on, really.
When my boss gives me an unwanted assignment and tells me it involves spending time with the grandson of one of our residents—the grandson turns out to be Troy. He’s now as successful as he is undeniably handsome.
Lucky me. Four hours a week of having to deal with his insufferable personality and unsolicited advice.
The only consolation is getting to stare at his annoyingly gorgeous face in between our many arguments.
Eventually, though, we slowly warm to each other and our outings become something I actually look forward to.

 

What’s happening to me?

 

Apparently, I misunderstood the assignment, because it certainly didn’t include thinking about Troy when I close my eyes at night, imagining what it would be like with him—just once. All the while hating myself for fantasizing about a guy who’s all wrong for me. A guy whose car I keyed back in the day. (Long story, but he deserved it.)
That’s all this is—a fantasy.
Well, until that one night at the bar.
The night Troy and I run into each other, and all of our pent-up frustration comes barreling out.
Still, I refuse to accept that it means anything.
There’s no way the guy I’m supposed to hate is also the one I can’t live without.

This book was a cute and fun read.  It was light and easy to get through.     I did enjoy this enemies to lovers romance and the way it all came together in the end with Aspen and Troy.   I loved all the little “sprinkles” along the way reading as well.   I found myself giggling especially with Nonno and really loved Troy’s character but found myself having a hard time really connecting with Aspyn for some odd reason.    I keep trying to put my finger on it but I think it was because of her simply just taking forever to realize things you do as a teen, MOST don’t do as an adult.   Once she finally came to this realization and let go a bit, I found myself liking her more as the book went on.   Oh and let’s not forget about Kiki an Menses the Unicorn, I damn near spit out my drink at that one!   Such an adorable little girl, clever and so oh witty!   I love how Troy connected with her, it really melted my ice cold heart!

Nonno 1000% stole the show in this book for me!  While this one wasn’t one of my favorites from one of my go to authors, I still enjoyed it none the less.  It was well written, with a good story line.  It had all the feels and certainly packed full of cute moments and laughter.   As always I can’t wait to see what Ms. Ward brings us next!

But the truth was…

I was never letting them go.

Blog Tour/Review – The Summer Proposal by Vi Keeland

 

Title: The Summer Proposal

Author: Vi Keeland

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: January 10, 2022

 

The first time I met Max Yearwood was on a blind date.

 

Max was insanely gorgeous, funny, and our chemistry was off the charts. He also had the biggest dimples I’d ever laid eyes on.
Exactly what I needed after my breakup.

 

Or so I thought…

 

Until my real date arrived.
Turned out, Max wasn’t who I was there to meet. He only pretended to be until my real date showed up.
To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.
Before he left, he slipped me a ticket to a hockey game a few blocks away, in case things didn’t work out on my actual date.
I tossed the ticket into my purse and went about trying to enjoy the man I was supposed to meet.
But my real blind date and I had no connection.
So on my way home, I decided to take a chance and stop by the game.
When I arrived, the seat next to me was empty.
Disappointed again, I decided to leave at the end of the period.
Just before the buzzer, one of the teams scored, and the entire arena went crazy.
A player’s face flashed up on the Jumbotron. He was wearing a helmet, but I froze when he smiled.
You guessed it: Dimples.
Apparently, my fake blind date hadn’t invited me to watch hockey with him, he’d invited me to watch him play.
And so began my adventure with Max Yearwood.
He was everything I needed at the time—fun, sexy, up for anything, and only around for a few months since he’d signed with a new team three-thousand miles away.
Max proposed we spend the summer helping me forget my ex. It sounded like a good plan. Things couldn’t get too serious when we had an expiration date. Right?
Though, you know what they say about the best-laid plans.

 

Who knew a Blind Date would turn into one hell of a whirlwind gorgeous romance!  Well, a blind date that really wasn’t your blind date.  Max can’t resist when he sees a gorgeous woman sitting alone at the restaurant and went walking her way, but when Georgia asked if he was Adam, Max being Max said “sure”.   All was well till Adam walked up.  I knew from that point that I was going to love his character.   Needless to say Georgia wasn’t too happy because this gorgeous killer smile stranger just lied to her face.  But Max wasn’t giving up, he leaves her to her real date but not without leaving an invitation to meet him at a Hockey Game, and it wasn’t just any Hockey Game.  It was HIS game!

This book was full of a sprinkle of everything.   It was funny, emotional, angsty, sweet and sexy.   I really enjoyed every single moment of this story.  Max is a swoon-worthy Hockey player and has mad skills on and off the ice, that is for sure.   Georgia is sweet, smart, successful and strong.   I really enjoyed all the characters and the direction of the story.   In true Vi fashion she wrapped it up and finished it off with a nice pretty book bow!
