Synopsis

Let me ask you a question:

If someone is vying for your spot on a team and just so happens to injure you during practice, would you believe it was on purpose?

Word around campus is . . . it was no accident.

That injury has cost me everything; my starting position, my junior year—and the draft. Now, I’m a senior fresh off recovery, struggling to find my groove, until the day I run into a nervous, fidgety, girl with freckles, in the dining hall.

They call Milly Potter The Baseball Whisperer, The Diamond Wizard, and The Epitome of All Knowledge. She believes in baseball. She breathes it. She’s the queen of an infamous dynasty, but no one actually knows who she really is, and she plans to keep it that way.

One mishap in the panini line, one miscommunication in the weight room, and many failed attempts at an apology equal up to one solid truth — Milly Potter never wants to speak to me again — no matter how good my forearms look.

Little do we both know, she’s about to become more than just my fairy ballmother.

Review

Meghan Quinn brings on ALL THE FEELS with this hilarious slow burn romantic comedy! This story was sexy and sweet with just the perfect amount of emotions. The Dugout had my heart, body, mind and soul wholeheartedly swooning right from the very first interaction between Carson Stone and Milly Potter! These two definitely had me on the hook from the beginning. They were absolutely EVERYTHING and I devoured their story as quickly as I possibly could (unfortunately work got in the way and I had to put it down before I could read it in one sitting)!

The Dugout was the PERFECT college sports romance. This story took me on a rollercoaster ride full of twists and turns, leaving me completely satisfied. Meghan Quinn hit a home run with this story and I can’t wait to hear what readers think about this couple. Seriously Carson and Milly captivated my heart and I loved every moment between them!

Review – Truth by S.J. Sylvis

Truth by S.J. Sylvis
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 19, 2019
Buy Now: Amazon

Synopsis

There’s only one thing that stands in the way of having my name stamped on a big, fat check trailing with several zeros.

And it goes by the name of Reid King.

What is a totally average elementary school music teacher doing standing in a tour bus with the King of Music? I have no idea, but for some reason, the stars have aligned and the universe thinks I’m the one who can to help him. That, somehow, Reid King and I can collaborate on an album together and make him the authentic, raw, soul-crushing singer that he once was.

Reid King thinks I’m in over my head.
Heck, even I think I’m in over my head.

But that check will solve all my problems, and nothing will stand in my way of getting it. Not Reid King, or his devilish smirk, or his soul-gripping voice, or his talented fingers that roam effortlessly over a guitar. Not even the steely glances he throws my way every three seconds.

I’ll get that money and save my family from years of heartache. And maybe… just maybe… I’ll save Reid from his heartache, too.

Review

Oh my goodness, Truth by S.J. Sylvis gave me all the feels and I am still trying to sort them all out, even hours after reaching the end. This story wholeheartedly managed to captivated me and I quickly found myself devouring every phenomenal word within a few hours. This happens to be the first story I have read from this author and now all I can think about is redeeming that fact because if the writing in those stories is ANYTHING like this one, I know I will absolutely love them!

Reid and Brooklyn’s story will have you completely overwhelmed with emotions, in the best possible way of course! Their emotional rollercoaster will leave you crying your eyes out one moment, laughing your ass of in the next, and of course at times wanting to throw your reading device across the room. The chemistry between these two beautiful souls had my heart swooning from the very beginning. Their banter was on point and I found myself falling even more in love with them throughout ever step of their journey. It’s definitely not an easy one and that’s the TRUTH, but then again, things would get boring without some complications.

There are still butterflies fluttering all throughout my body and I cannot help but recommend this extraordinary tale! If you haven’t read S.J. Sylvis yet, don’t wait any longer because you need to read this story!

Review – Another by Fiona Cole

Another by Fiona Cole
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 12, 2019
Buy Now: Amazon

Synopsis

The first time I saw him, he entranced me and offered to help me forget my broken engagement.

The second time was on a blind date with no last names and undeniable passion.

The third time, I was eight months pregnant with his baby he knew nothing about.

This time he’s not letting me walk away so easily.

Review

Another is a sexy, sassy, swoony, and emotional story that was beyond perfection! Fiona Cole always manages to wholeheartedly consume every piece of my heart and soul with her unique storytelling ability and holds on tight to it the entire time I am inhaling her words. She just writes in a way that leave you fully satisfied and yet at the same time craving more because you don’t ever want to say goodbye to these characters. This incredible lady became one of my favorite authors the moment I read my first book from her back in 2018 and she continues to make me fall in love all over again with each new release!

Ian and Carina’s story was EVERYTHING and I am so glad that Fiona Cole decided to give Carina her own story, especially after the drama that took place in The Lovers (although I am totally glad that Jake and Jackson ended up together because I freaking loved those two)! Sure there might have been some bumps in the road, I mean…SURPRISE PREGNANCY anyone? Their story is the perfect mix of heart, humor and heat that will have you swooning every step of their journey!

Now that I’ve finished this incredibly captivating story, I don’t know how I can possibly wait for the next book in this series world! I just know that it will certainly be worth the wait because Fiona Cole’s stories ALWAYS are! Fans of her will fall even more in love with her writing, but if you haven’t read one of her books yet, I think you might just find a new favorite author! TRUST ME when I say you need to read Ian and Carina’s story RIGHT NOW!

Synopsis

I knew within moments of meeting Mason Holt that he would change my life forever.

I just didn’t realize how much.

As my world spirals out of control, he continues to stay by my side, protecting and taking care of me. Being just friends is all he’s been able to offer, that is until both of our lives are threatened. Now that our relationship is blossoming into something more, I can’t be what he needs even if I wished I could.

Bad timing strikes again.

When I think we can finally be together, someone threatens to tear us apart. I’m not the same girl Mason met three years ago, but I’m determined to fight for what I’ve always wanted—him.

Review

Readers you best prepare yourself for the highly anticipated conclusion of Mason and Sophie’s duet! If you thought their first book was full of twists and turns, then you ain’t seen nothing yet. This dynamic duo continues to surprise me with each new release and I had no idea what to expect after that EPIC cliffhanger ending in Truly Mine!

Truly Yours managed to wholeheartedly captivated my body, mind, and soul with this friends-to-lovers roommate romance that was full of drama, suspense and a lot of angsty slow burning moments between our two leads! This story broke shattered my heart into a million pieces and I found myself swooning over every beautiful and heartbreaking moment that Kennedy Fox threw at us. Their storytelling ability was absolutely brilliant and it was impossible to stop reading, so thank goodness I didn’t have to! My mind was completely blown from this emotionally captivating love story and thank goodness these two got their happily ever after…even if their were a few (okay more than a few) bumps in the road!

While Mason and Sophie’s story has finally reached their end, this series has so much more in store for us, I can just feel it! I cannot freaking wait to get my hands on Liam and Madelyn’s duet (Always Mine & Always Yours)!

Best of Me by LK Farlow
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 5, 2019
Buy Now: Amazon

Synopsis

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been the dark to my sister’s light—the awkward loner to her social butterfly. Growing up, she had it all: our parent’s unyielding approval, perfect grades, a permanent spot at the popular table, and the attention of the hottest guy ever—Duke Kincaid.

After eighteen years of living in her shadow, I couldn’t wait to escape—to finally be my own person. Yet here I am, I’m back in my hometown, once again in Valorie’s shadow. Only now, it’s eternal.

I had life all planned out: join the force, marry Valorie Parsons, and start a family of our own. I have the job, but the girl and all my dreams died before my very eyes.

Finally ready to move on, I agree to a blind date. Imagine my shock when I arrive and find, Valorie’s twin sister, waiting across the table from me. Mallory should be a reminder of all that I’ve lost, but instead, she feels like my redemption . . . like maybe life’s giving me a second chance.

But, how can I be enough for her when I’ve already given her sister the best of me?

Review

Best of Me is the kind of story that will take readers on an emotionally captivating rollercoaster ride full of unexpected twists and turns. LK Farlow has been one of my favorite authors ever since she released her debut back in 2017 and she never seizes to surprise me with each new release. This story is hands down on of my top reads of 2019 and I absolutely adored every single thing about this story from the slightly forbidden storyline to the unique character development!

Duke and Mallory’s story stole my heart and consumed every inch of my soul. Their beautiful connection wholeheartedly captivated me and there were moments throughout their story when they took my breath away. The raw emotions between these two lost souls were intense and had me experiencing all the feels! Their journey is not any easy one full of sunshine and rainbows, but rather a bumpy ride full of grief, pain and loss. Together they find a way to heal each other, as if they were always destined to be.

This story proves that sometimes life gives you a second chance at love, even if you don’t think you are deserving of it. Duke and Mallory both deserve a happily ever after moment, and I have to say that LK Farlow delivers that with the Best of Me!

Jock Road by Sara Ney
Series: Jock Hard #3
Genres: Sports Romance
Release Date: September 5, 2019
Buy Now: Amazon

Synopsis

EAT. SLEEP. FOOTBALL.

Those are Jackson Jennings, Jr’s three mantras . His entire life, he’s been a trained athlete with only one end-game: the Pro’s. No girls. No parties. No alcohol.

EAT. SLEEP. FOOTBALL.

Repeat.

Every Friday night, Triple J cruises the strip on campus, bored, lonely and conditioned not to party. But the night he meets Charlotte Edmonds on the side of the road, he wonders if his three mantras will ever be enough.

BIG. DUMB. JOCK.

Charlie has no time for Jackson’s antics. Not when he’s stealing her food or teases her to no end, making her tingle in all the right places. But if she’s ever going to have a boyfriend, she’d choose one who isn’t a Neanderthal. One with manners and actual time to spend with her. Not a hulking man-child who cruises the strip at night, in his Big. Dumb. Truck.

Review

Jock Road is a sweet, hilarious, and heartwarming sports romance that gave me all the warm and fuzzies deep inside! Sara Ney is the QUEEN of witty romances and over the years she has quickly become one of my favorite authors. If she announces a new release I don’t even think twice…I instantly one-click as fast as my little finger will allow me to.

Jackson Jennings Junior (aka Triple J) and Charlotte “Charlie” Edmonds are an unlikely pair that met in an unlikely way and in many ways I think that is what works for them. The moment these two met sparks were flying…in annoyance that is! Their chemistry set my heart on fire and that slow burn kind of feeling left me inhaling this story as quickly as I freaking could! The level of angst mixed with witty banter between these two was true perfection.

This story was the PERFECT addition to the Jock Hard series and readers won’t be able to resist Jackson and Charlie! I loved every single moment and I can’t wait to see what the next book has to hold, but knowing Sara Ney, it’s going to be AH-FREAKING-MAZING!

Synopsis

Kip Carmichael is no pretty boy.

He’s a rough. Dirty. Giant. Hair so unruly, and a beard so thick, his friends on the team call him Sasquatch.

The first time Sasquatch lays eyes on Theodora “Teddy” Johnson across the keg at a party one night on Jock Row, she’d been relegated to the sidelines by her jock hungry “friends.”

Week-after-week, he watches beautiful but bashful Teddy getting overshadowed, and overlooked. Sasquatch finally broad shoulders his way through the crowd, offering to to be her hairy godmother. But the minute their eyes meet? He’s a goner.

Teaching her the RULES for winning a jock will be the easy part. Not falling in love with her is going to be a losing game.

Review

It’s official…THAT’S RIGHT, I AM OFFICIALLY CALLING IT! This story is hands down the BEST book in the Jock Hard series, and my favorite story of all-time. Sara Ney’s uniquely captivating storytelling ability had me hooked right from the very beginning and wholeheartedly engulfed every part of my heart! Rugby players are my new addiction…and I am totally okay with that!

Kipling “Kip” Carmichael and Theodora “Teddy” Johnson are EVERYTHING you want in a book couple and I couldn’t think of a more perfectly match pair than these two. Although I’m not sure if everyone would agree with me, but come on…a hot and sexy bearded man bun wearing rugby player falling for the sweet and quite girl…YES PLEASE! Their story is what I like to call a twist on a modern day beauty and the beast…although this is the kind of beast or should I say Sasquatch, that I can DEFINITELY get behind! Just thinking about the chemistry between these two leaves a deep ache in my chest!

Jock Rule is a sweet and lovable slow burning romance that will set your heart of fire as you find yourself falling head over heels in love with Kip and Teddy! This opposites attract sports romance is unlike anything I have ever read and I cannot wait to see what Sara Ney comes up with next!
