Being labelled a player never stopped me from being successful with women. Until I met Truly Harbury.

Truly was the first girl who ever turned me down.

The first female friend I ever had.

And she might jyst be the first woman I ever fall in love with.

When an emergency means she needs my help running her family’s charity, I’m happy to introduce her to the glitz and glamour of the London business world—taking her to dinners, coaching her through speeches, zipping up the sexy evening gown I helped her pick out.

The more time we spend together, the more I want to convince her I’m not a man to avoid, that we’re not as unsuited as she believes.

She sees herself as the book-reading, science-loving introvert while I’m the dangerous, outgoing, charmer.

She thinks I love parties and people whereas she prefers pajamas and a takeaway.

What she doesn’t realize is that I like everything about her–the way her smile lights up a room, how her curves light up my imagination, and especially the way her lips taste when coated with tequila.

She’s the first woman I ever fell in love with. I just need to know if she could ever love me too.

I held out his glass, and he took it with one hand, loosening his tie with the other. I pulled my eyes away from his long fingers and the way he always seemed so confident everywhere he went.

“How was your day?” he asked as he sat on the other end of the sofa, one long arm stretched across the back of the cushions, almost touching me like he’d done the night we’d kissed at the tequila bar.

“Good,” I said, nodding furiously.

He chuckled. “What’s going on, Truly? Do you have bad news you need me to help you deliver to Abigail? An issue with the foundation?”

“Not exactly,” I replied, tipping back some more wine. “Not at all, in fact.” I had to tell him what I was thinking, but it seemed so stupid now that he was here, all perfect and gorgeous. Why on earth would he want me?

“I just thought we could have some wine and talk. You know.”

His smile faltered. “Okay.” He took a sip of wine. “You said you had a proposition.”

“Yeah, but I’m not drunk enough yet,” I replied. I wasn’t sure I would ever be drunk enough. “And neither are you.”

“I have to be drunk to hear whatever you have to say?” He glanced around my book-lined room. “Are you going to tell me you’re MI6 and that you want to recruit me? Because I’m in. I always thought I’d enjoy a life as a spy. It just doesn’t pay enough. But I could do it part-time.”

I fixed him with a glare. “I’m not trying to recruit you into MI6, Noah.” I rolled my eyes. Men. Why did they always think they were a step away from being the next James freaking Bond?

He grinned. “Yeah, I didn’t think so. You’d make a terrible spy.”

I leaned back into the sofa. “There’s no way I could do that job.”

“For one thing, they look for people who don’t stand out—you’re way too beautiful for people not to notice you.” He twisted my hair in his fingers, and I closed my eyes, forgetting for a few seconds how that wasn’t normal behavior between us.

My eyes flew open. “That’s a perfect example.” I shifted to look at him properly. “Things like that. The fingers. The telling me I’m beautiful. I need you out of my system. And Jesus God and a banana, I need some sex.”

He chuckled and grabbed the bottle, topping himself up. “I’m cutting you off until you tell me what this is all about,” he said.

“I just told you. I need to get laid, and you, with all your tequila kisses and unzipping dresses and that thing you do with my neck—you’re the man for the job.”

“The job?” he asked, his eyebrows retreating into his hairline. “The job of getting you laid?”

Dangerous Magic, an all-new cozy mystery from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart writing as Evie Hart, is coming May 16th!

PAPERBACKCOVER-1.jpg

It’s not every day you have to return to your hometown to bind your borderline-poltergeist grandmother to the family property.

Unfortunately, today is that day for Avery Thorn.

All Avery wants is to report the binding to the Witch Council so she can fulfill her obligation, but finding a dead body and the Head of the Council on the brink of death isn’t in her plan.

Especially when she’s pegged as the number one suspect.

Now, it’s down to Avery and her cousins—and her sassy feline familiar—to figure out who tried to murder the Head of the Council. Magically bound to find the culprit, the last thing she needs is the new detective getting under her toes.

Unfortunately for her, she finds herself colliding with the hot cop more than she wants. And since her familiar hates him, it’s not always pleasant.

New magic and a devastating tragedy threaten to derail their investigations—but not quite as much as the person who isn’t happy they’re involved…

Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

A book I anticipated for as long as the wait to receive it, once it hit my kindle I dived in and was reaching the finishing line quicker than I would have liked. These authors don’t create short reads but they have the ability to spin a brutally emotional and raw tale that ensnares the reader and makes time fly faster than normal.

We don’t pick up at the end of the last book. Nope, not in this one and it does make a lot of sense to have a time lapse.  As the authors themselves state, this is a book about both Jimmy and Lilah and she was a messed up basket case in the last book. Lost in substance abuse, wallowing in it like a pig rolls around in mud. She needed time to remake her little world and discover who she is standing on her own two feet.

When Jimmy and Lilah come face-to-face again, it could have been so much better if Jimmy hadn’t found out what he did the way he did. You see, Lilah had a secret and it kept me guessing on whether Jimmy would ever be able to move past it. Hate comes from love. Hate fuels passion and these two had it in spades. With a single word or look they could injure or even maim.

‘The pressure inside me releases, and I finally admit to myself that my concern isn’t just because she’s–,

It’s because she’s Lilah.

My Lilah.

No matter the time and distance and circumstances that kept us apart, some things never change. And what we mean to one another is one of those things.’

With the time between books, t meant that the story between them progressed at a very slow pace. Almost insurmountable odds were stacked so high even Superman would have struggled to leap them in a single bound.

Lilah oftentimes wasn’t a good person in the first book. Whereas here she’s relatable, I lost count of the number of times my heart bled for her and the predicaments she had put herself in. Good or bad, her decisions (off drugs) were always made carefully and with thought and planning. Well, for the most part, she knows where she wants to be and who she wants to be and when she jumps in she does it with both feet.

“I wish there was another word for love because sometimes I feel like it doesn’t sum up what we have.”

There is no risk of boredom or monotony when reading a book penned by these two lovely ladies. Jimmy and Lilah have earned their spot on my top three much-loved couples.

‘My reaction is fierce and immediate. I growl into her mouth and slide my tongue along the seam of her lips. She parts them for me, and the taste of her rushes in on an ocean of conflicting emotions. Ever so slowly, we find that rhythm and the sting of betrayal fades and all I taste is her want and need that matches my own.’

We make of life what we will and even fictional characters have been known to throw a wrench into their own machinery. All We Are is the kind of book I wish I truly could read again for the first time. Thank you, ladies, for completing this duet the way you did. I loved the epilogue that was so brilliantly done.

Start the EX-FACTOR DUET today!

Will I ever stop hurting the one person who’s never hurt me?

I’ve done things I can never undo.

No matter how much I wish I could, sometimes the wounds I inflict are too deep, too catastrophic, too septic to heal.

As I look into the eyes of the only man I’ve ever loved I know I’ve gone too far. I’ve finally crossed the line.

Even if he knew my reason for doing this, he’d never forgive me.

He always puts my needs before his own.

Now it’s my turn to protect him.

None of that matters though because the betrayal and disgust in his eyes comes from deep within his soul. There’s no coming back from this.

He will forever be tormented by what he’s seen, and he will never forgive me.

The last fragment of my heart to hold out hope that we’d share a future, withers and dies.

Edward Fasbender is a devil.

He’s my father’s business rival, a powerful, vicious man who takes what he wants and bows to no one. I only took the meeting because I was curious. I thought he was going to offer me a job.

But that’s not what he’s after at all. His proposal is much more intriguing, and I see an opportunity. An opportunity to turn the tables and bring down the devil.

I’ve gotten in trouble playing these games before. I know when the risk is too great, when the stakes are too high. I know how to be cold and strong-willed and destructive. I know how to withstand dominant men with arrogant charm and rugged features.

Yet I can’t resist taking on Edward.

And I can’t resist the pull he has on me.

Soon I’m not so sure which side of the battle I’m standing on–if I’m the warrior meant to slay,

Or the one who will be slain.

TWO REVIEWS ~ TOUCH MY SOUL by Stuart Reardon & Jane Harvey-Berrick

Today we are thrilled to be sharing two reviews of Stuart Reardon and Jane Harvey-Berrick’s heart-breaking love story, TOUCH MY SOUL

“Oh, you little heartbreaker!”

Ben Richards is a professional rugby player, successful and single. He has everything he wants in life, except for the health of his younger brother who suffers from a life-limiting illness.

When fun and feisty physiotherapist Brunina comes into both their lives, he realizes that love is a precious gift—and that a little love can last a lifetime.

Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse at KFF

Jane Harvey-Berrick and Stuart Reardon seem to me to be having a wordy-wise book love affair going on! In a nutshell; they cracked it in this novella, making me sob ‘till the cows came home! The flawless first-person perspective in past tense shares thoughts, fears and future doubts. Okay…I am a crybaby per se, but that doesn’t mean that their latest offering didn’t touch my brainstem in every possible way. A duo to be reckoned with regarding sports romance if you like the thrill of going in blind; delving into the unknown and yearn for surprises, Touch My Soul has it all. It’s not a long read; however, the authors have covered a heart-wrenching subject with the utmost compassion, finesse, and sensitivity.

The opportunity to learn more about the stress behind professional rugby was far too enticing to be ignored since this genre apart from contemporary romance is at the top of my list. And to top the lot, a solid storyline about how two brothers felt in a dire situation was in my book, beyond special. Why you may ask! It was a question of tackling head on one’s acceptance of what’s on the cards. How Ben Richards come to terms with his younger brother, Paul’s illness. How they both cope with it. Regarding everyday tasks, Paul’s self-respect is in question since simple things in life aren’t easy and ooh boy, did I feel for him.

Here steps in a no-nonsense physiotherapist not to be messed with. Brunina aka Ru has a new job to do as best as she can in front of some very attractive and burly rugby players. Their flirtations could easily overstep the mark; nonetheless, someone reminds them about the art of courtesy. She’ll cannily take what she gets with abounding Brit humour and sass and I fell hard for her. A relief to laugh out loud when the story is so heartbreaking. Work ethics she has, but she catches the eye of Ben. He likes what he sees and sparks fly, romance is in the air and I clapped my hands with glee.

Ben is adorable. Chivalrous, attentive…hmm, my new book boyfriend if he’s not already been taken! Opening his heart, observing his thoughts and watching how the story evolved kept me attentive at all times. Ladies, he and Ru’s chemistry cannot be denied. For me, their story is so much more than the steaminess, which I might add, is scorching hot.

The beginning of the story is harsh stuff, and as it rolled on, I was left with a lump in my throat. The twist floored me to the point of tears, the ending…I have no words to describe how I felt. I honestly don’t know how these authors have managed to pull off such a beautifully written novella, seeing as the content is so dense. This little-big gem of a read is not too long or too short and most certainly a must-read. Bravo Harvey-Berrick and Reardon!

Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KFF

A collaboration of two authors, their novella is packed with an emotional punch. A short story that made my heart shatter into pieces but made whole again by the inspiring message and hope.

Ben Richards is a winger for the Finchley Phoenexis, a top league Rugby Union Club.  He is wholly dedicated to his sport, a responsible young man and a skilled athlete at the top of his game.  Paul, his younger brother, is the one who keeps him grounded and makes him reflect on life and the choices given to him.

Bruninha or Ru, is the new physiotherapist of the team. A little spitfire who won’t be messed around in the locker room by a bunch of jocks, she is quick-witted and can give as good as she gets. Ru is a young woman who’s full of life and loves her job.

This tale narrated from Ben’s point of view may be short but is full of angst. When I was warned that I might need tissues, I knew that somewhere along the storyline this will end in tears and although I didn’t bawl my eyes out (I managed to hold it in), the grief and heartbreak I felt for the characters was totally consuming. This book is not only about romance but also tells us about the two brothers’ relationship. Eighteen-year-old Paul is a charming character, he may be physically weak but his zest for life is contagious. The interaction between Ru and her family, with Ben and his own parents, is significant.

The authors successfully combine the entertaining world of rugby and the fascinating family dynamics of Ben and Ru’s families. My only gripe is that because this is a novella, I felt short-changed, I wanted so much more. I hope the authors will give us more of Ben’s story. I highly recommend this.

“What’s the matter with you?” Paul asked the next evening. “You’re being weird.”“What are you talking about, you little squirt? Weird how?”“Smiling and shit. It’s creepy.”Without looking, I threw a cushion at his head and flipped channels on the TV. Mum and Dad were having a rare night out for just the two of them, so Paul was staying with me. We didn’t call it babysitting, but that’s kind of what it was. It took quite a lot of planning for him to spend the night away from home: there were all his meds to pack up; his high-calorie drinks, some strange banana-flavoured stuff called Fortisip which was like a thick milkshake and a feeding supplement. I kept a bunch of his stuff at my place anyway, and I knew he liked getting away from Mum and Dad—they could be pretty stifling, especially now he was 18. He should be leaving home and taking the place he’d been offered at Cambridge to study Chemistry or going backpacking around the world or getting his first job. Instead, he was stuck being a kid while his health became more and more fragile. He threw the cushion back and grabbed the remote control, flipping back to the DVD channel. I groaned. Game of Thrones again. I’d never got into it, even though I thought that Queen of Dragons chick was hot, but Paul loved it.
“So, are you going to tell me what’s up?”

“Nope.”

“You’re being a dickhead, Ben,” he grumbled.

“Not true! I’ve ordered pizza and I’m letting you watch Dungeons and Dragons.”

He gripped the remote control and glared at me.

“It’s Game of Thrones, knob head.”

“Cheese dick,” and I grabbed the remote, holding it over my head.

“Wanker.”

“Tosser.”

“That’s weapons-grade tosser to you.”

I was distracted when my phone beeped with a message and Paul yanked the remote control out of my hands.

Have fun with Paul.

Excited about our date! You’d better impress me.

Ru x

“What’s that stupid smile on your face?” Paul asked suspiciously.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“It’s that girl, isn’t it? The hot one at the hospital.”

My denial was a second too slow.

“Holy shit, are you shagging her?”

I slapped him around the head, not very gently.

“Don’t talk about her like that.”

He rubbed his head, surprise written on his face.

“Sorry, bruv. I didn’t realise that you liked her that way.” He paused. “She seemed really nice.”

“She is,” I said shortly.

 

QUICK QUOTES

Life would never be the same again. Sometimes that’s not necessarily a good thing.

Guys, if you’re reading this, here’s a tip from the top: women love cake. Doesn’t matter what kind because they love all types of cake.

If you were twice as smart as you are, you’d be half as smart as you think you are.

Her mittens pressed against the back of my neck, drawing me closer, and we kissed, on the top of a London double-decker bus as snowflakes started to drift down around us, catching in Ru’s dark hair, sparkling like diamonds before they melted. Could anything ever be this perfect again?

Ru was the storm that I didn’t see coming. No clouds on the horizon, just the heat on my skin as I felt the electricity between us.

JUNK MAIL by Kendall Ryan is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing Kendall Ryan’s brand new romantic comedy, JUNK MAIL

A confident, sexy hero with ALL the moves.
 A smart, speaks-her-mind heroine. 😍
 Humor, sexy times & so many inappropriate texts. 🍆
 A dreadful incident involving gluten.

 

It all started with a sexy selfie.

Texted to the wrong number.

Oops.

Not my finest moment—but I have nothing to be ashamed of.

She thought I was no better, and I quote, than the knuckle-dragging douche-bags she was never dating again.

It was a stupid dare from a girl I’d met online, but since she’d given me a fake number, I didn’t feel bad that my interests were suddenly focused elsewhere—on the fiery and sharp-tongued, Peyton that I found myself sparring with over text for the rest of the evening.

The following day, my case of mistaken identity came back to bite me in the banana.

When I strolled into the office, I was introduced to Peyton as the new client I needed to win over. The Peyton, in case you’re not tracking.

And let’s just say she had my full attention.

Brains? Check.

Beauty? Oh yeah.

And the best part? She hated me on sight.

Dear God, do I love a challenge.

Let the games begin.

When your phone pings you expect a message from a friend, or at least someone you know. This was not the case for Peyton. When she looked down to see who the message was from and what she saw literally took her breath away in shock and in wonder.

Josh Hanson was single, handsome, drop-dead gorgeous and loved beautiful women. He works hard and plays hard, and he wanted some play time. He loves talking to beautiful women whether it be face to face or online. For the last three nights he’d been conversing and flirting online with one particular woman. She asked him something and he so graciously delivered. Only she wasn’t completely honest with him, which set the scene and outline for this book.

Peyton Richards was beautiful, smart and chasing her dreams of starting her own business. She lived with her gram who was spritely and kept her on her toes. Peyton was about to sign a business contract with a company that would sell her products in their stores in the hope that this would catapult her business to new heights.

Josh was in business with his best friend. When he agreed to take a meeting for him he never expected to come face to face with Peyton. The same Peyton who received a text message that wasn’t meant for her.

There was an instant attraction between them. Every time she looked at him, she was reminded of the text message she’d received. And if she’s being honest with herself, she wasn’t put off by what she saw. But business was business and neither one of them wanted to overstep that mark. Will they be able to keep it strictly business or will their mutual attraction get the better of them both? You’ll have to read the book if you want that question answered.

As a reader, I really enjoyed the interaction between these two characters. There was humour, flirty banter which made this story interesting and captivating. I couldn’t wait to see where Josh and Peyton were going to go next. The attraction between these two characters was blatantly obvious and I was rooting for them both in a big way. I’m a huge fan of the writings of Kendall Ryan. Congratulations on a well-written book. I look forward to reading more of your work.

EXCERPT

“Let’s get down to the nuts and bolts of this, shall we?”

Nuts?

Seriously, Hanson? Of all the words in the English language, you choose nuts?

But hey, on the plus side, she hasn’t seen the boys, just their leader.

Even so, I need to keep this meeting above the belt, including my own damn thoughts. I offer Peyton another apologetic smile. Time to get this deal back on track.

“Want to tell me more about your company?”

“I do. I really do.”

Her tone shifts instantly when she mentions her business, making me even more keen to hear her pitch.

I smile. A perfect, professional smile, as I cross my legs and fold my hands in my lap. I’m a motherfucking gentleman, not a junk-shot-sending caveman. “I want to hear all about it, Peyton.”

The only way to get past this mixup is to focus on business.

Not on her pretty face.

Not on those gorgeous eyes.

And definitely not on that dark hair I want to wrap around my fist and yank on it hard.

Four fucking months . . . that’s what’s wrong with my libido. It’s not operating in its normal overdrive. No, today, it’s at fucking warp speed. This is what happens when your own hand becomes your closest companion.
