“Are you looking for the cheerleading tryouts, sweetheart?”

Zeke Kingston is the arrogant, tattooed, and sinful coach of Boston University’s women’s football team. And I’m their new quarterback.

From the moment the dark and broody hunk mistook me for a cheerleader we’ve clashed. His smirking lips make my blood boil and his god-like muscles turn my knees weak.

Everything about us is off limits, but lines are blurring and temptations have become too hard to resist.

Being together breaks all the rules, but what happens when the rules no longer matter?

This is a standalone with crossover characters from PENALTY and DRIVE.

Reviewed by Donna on behalf of KFF

Zeke Kingston is the newly appointed coach for the Boston Terriers women’s football team. He is a hot alpha who is sinful and broody. The first words he ever speaks to Amelia has her back up straight away with the arrogance he portrays. His full-time job is a financial advisor. Zeke is a very busy guy indeed.

Amelia is the new quarterback for the Boston Terriers. Already Zeke has rubbed her up the wrong way, but there’s something about him that on the one hand has her seething; on the other, just one look from him makes her frustratingly weak at the knees. As her coach, he is off limits although the temptation is all too hard to resist. Amelia just wants to focus on her scholarship with no distractions.

It’s like a cat and mouse kind of situation with Zeke and Amelia with the strong attraction. However, the forbidden element of this couple somehow seems hopeless, making one think there can’t be anymore. Zeke tries his hardest to stick being the professional coach, keeping his pent-up attraction to Amelia to himself.

Feisty Amelia wants to play football and get through college, but seeing Zeke every day just sends her into a spin. The struggle is real between the two. The characters make an appearance from the previous BT books and it was a real pleasure to have them supporting the story. We also got a couple of new characters in the mix.

Coach is the third installment of the Boston Terriers series but can be read as a standalone. To get the full effect, I would advise reading all three if you’re a fan of sports romances. Zeke and Amelia’s story has everything from banter, passion, and romance. I was hooked on the story from the prologue to the end. I was convinced that it was a forbidden love but was absolutely flawed by the surprise twist during this rollercoaster of a story because let’s face it, two passionate people forbidden from each other is always a page-turner. I could never have predicted the spin on things.

The author has a fluidity to his writing that grabs you from the off start. The descriptiveness and cleverly planned out plot had me captivated and spellbound by the intensity. Mr chance seems to be able to turn his hand at sports or suspense and I follow with great interest as to what will be created next. What I love about his penmanship is the unpredictability. You never know what you are going to get but I promise it is always thrilling regardless of the genre. Five stars is a mild rating in comparison to the wonderful enthralling story of Zeke and Amelia.

JARED

If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat…

The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.

Her anger is…arousing.

Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth,

gets me…well, you know.

If I had a dollar for every time she’s put me in my place, I’d be an even richer man.

I’m a successful sports agent because I assume “no” means you’ll think about it.

I’m sure what you meant to say is “Coming right up.”

They say even rich men don’t always get what they want,

but those men don’t know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.

Take Banner. She assumes she’s winning, but this game?

She doesn’t even know how to play.

BANNER

If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.

One night. One epic fail. One dollar…and I’m out.

I’ve moved on.

I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.

Anything they can do, I have done better.

They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.

And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?

Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.

I’ll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.

Oh, I didn’t say the struggle wasn’t real.

But I’ve got that one dollar, and Jared won’t have me.

BRING DOWN THE STARS by Emma Scott is LIVE!

 

I fell for Connor Drake. I didn’t want to; I fought against it, but I fell in love with him anyway. With his words. With his poetry. With him. The gentleness and beauty of his soul that speaks directly to mine. He writes as if he can feel my heart, hear its cadence and compose the exact right lyrics to accompany every beat and flow.

I’m in love with Connor…so why do I feel an inexplicable pull to his best friend, Weston? Grouchy, sullen, brooding Weston Turner, who could cut you down with a look. Fiercely intelligent with a razor sharp wit and acid tongue, he’s the exact opposite of Connor in every way, and yet there’s electricity in the air between us. The thorny barbs Weston wraps around himself can’t keep me away.

But the more time I spend with these men, the more tangled and confused my emotions become. When they both sign up for the Army Reserves during a time of increasing strife in the Middle East, I fear I’ll never unravel my own heart that sometimes feels as if it will tear straight down the middle…for both of them.

**********
Bring Down the Stars is an emotional, angst-filled novel of unrequited love by bestselling author, Emma Scott, and is inspired by the classic tale, Cyrano de Bergerac. (Roxanne) It is Book I in the Beautiful Hearts Duet, coming this summer. Book II, Long Live the Beautiful Hearts, to be released a few weeks later. #lovetriangle #confusedhearts #notamenage

Sharon Thérèse’s 5 Star Review

My first thoughts after turning the last page; what  a simply magnificent read. My dilemma. How on earth was I going to write a review worthy of such a heart wrenching and beautiful book? I do hope I am able to give it the justice deserved, resonated in my head. Even though I haven’t read all of this author’s works, the ones I had were more than enjoyable. But Bring Down The Stars; ooh my, what an emotional roller-coaster ride in the first instalment of the Beautiful Hearts Duet! I really have strong feelings about this love story. Scott’s delved deeply into her soul to develop a relationship between her two male characters who are like chalk and cheese. But their friendship works so damn well together, they literally took my breath away. Now then, I’m a sucker for a good cry, so if you’re like me and prone to getting teary-eyed, I’d recommend not one man-sized hanky but three!

The prologue. It instantly grabbed my attention because what Weston Turner experienced was the cause of so much anguish and distress. It is the force behind his attitude, the root of his bitterness. Also, being at an age of awareness showed me that the result of this happening was sufficient motivation for him to want to move on. And although at times this was a matter of personal consternation, he tried hard to make things better, if only for his family’s sake. Thinking he was in control of his emotions is quite a different story altogether; nonetheless, a new beginning presented itself; an unknown journey overflowing with heartache and happiness.

Wes and Connor Drake met under not such brilliant circumstances but would learn to love each other like brothers, for what they are, faults and all…the whole shebang. This made me think of my son; the steadfast friends he has cherished over the years, their tolerance and forgiveness, how my heart sings when I listen to their banter, observe their jovial man hugs. Wes and Connor have exactly that except in their case, it’s far from plain sailing.

Connor is a good-looking happy-go-lucky kinda guy, doesn’t have a malicious bone in his body, but came across to me as a tad self-centered where the opposite sex is concerned. I mean, even when you’re out to prove yourself, nobody’s perfect, eh? Whether you think he unwillingly complicates Wes’s life or not is for you to judge, I personally couldn’t lay all the blame on him. What I will say is I would have gladly jumped into my Kindle and knocked their heads together!

Wes is as drop-dead gorgeous and ripped as he is stubborn. To the point of being rude, he has little time or patience for conversation or socializing. Apart from being intelligent and having a hidden talent, he has an unbeatable track record in running, which wasn’t a surprise seeing that the reasons for him competing in this sport is made clear early on in the story. A book nerd too, his most important gift I’m not going to say a word about. Ladies, you will swoon, want to pull your hair out, scream at the top of your voice…this guy’s gonna put you through the wringer and you won’t come out unscathed. Just a warning!

Autumn. What a lovely name for an even lovelier gal. In fact, her unassuming beauty draws everyone’s attention, the lads included. Whilst a romantic at heart, she has grounds for not wanting to get involved or time for distractions. Nothing is that simple, lines become blurred and here folks is where I’m going to stop because I have absolutely no wish to let on.

If I had to give one of them center stage, it would be Wes. I didn’t read the blurb until after finishing Bring Down The Stars and beg you to do the same. Now I’ve said that I can’t tell you why I feel this way. Just trust me on this please, ladies. Connor was as important to me as was Wes and Autumn. The latter two narrate from a dual point of view; however, plenty of dialogue and thoughts abound, so I had no trouble bonding with Connor. They all have a unique story that needs to be heard, understood and more importantly, a love which will break even the hardest reader’s heart.

What can I say to you Emma that I’m sure many readers have said already? Your writing is exquisite, your storyline original, moving and flows like a dream. The book’s structure is different, not in the least bit confusing and never once did I encounter mundane details. The cliffy…goodness me, there are no less than two of them! Read the sneak peek right at the very end of the book, it’ll floor you! Hmm…my reaction was a choice of expletives which I’d rather not repeat and the cause of inconsolable sorrow. I can’t wait to get my hands on Long Live The Beautiful Hearts and from the bottom of my mine, I pray there will be light at the end of the tunnel. Five Beautiful Stars ~ Bravo Scott!

EXCERPT

Later that night, Connor lay sprawled on the couch with SportsCenter blaring, scrolling his phone. I sat at the kitchen table, tapping my pen against an empty page in my notebook and contemplating running as my Object of Devotion. I couldn’t muster the blood and guts to put it to paper. I liked running. It served a purpose, but did I want to make it my life?

“Oh shit,” Connor cried from behind me.

“What is it?”

“I accidentally texted her.”

“Who?” I said, knowing damn well who.

“Autumn. I was fucking messing around and I hit that stupid predictive text thing, then panicked and hit send.”

“So what?”

“I don’t text or call a girl until at least three days have passed.”

I set down my pen and turned around. “Are you serious?”

“Of course I’m serious. It looks desperate to text her the same day.”

I hid a smile. “What did you text?”

“Just ‘yes’.” His eyes widened. “Shit. She’s texting me back.”

Connor jumped up from the couch and came to where I sat, standing next to my chair as we both watched his phone.

Yes…? J

Connor typed, Hey.

I smirked. “Really?”

“Yeah, so?”

A pause, then a new text bubbled up. What’s up?

“Now she’s annoyed,” I said. “Or impatient.”

Connor looked to me. “What do I say?”

“Why are you asking me?”

“You’re good at this shit. How many papers did you write for me at Sinclair?”

“This is not the same thing.”

“Ballpark.” Connor made a face. “Dude, she’s waiting.”

I frowned, thought for a moment. “Tell her the truth.”

“Hell no—”

“Tell her the truth but make it better. Tell her you were messing with your phone while thinking about her. Tell her that you wanted to talk to her so badly, your subconscious made it happen.”

“Oh, that’s good.”

Connor’s fingers flew, and then he hit send.

There was a pause and no answer.

Connor frowned. “What’s this mean?”

“It’s good. I mean she’s thinking about what you said.”

The rolling dots of Autumn’s reply came in.

The old ‘accidental text’ move? I feel like I’ve seen that before…;-)

“She’s not letting you off the hook so easily,” I said, smiling despite myself. “Don’t deny. Tell her she’s one hundred percent right. You’ll make any excuse to talk to her.”

“That’s perfect, man.”

Connor typed and hit send.

I like your honesty, came the reply.

“Hey, it’s working.” Connor beamed. “Now what?”

It was working, and I didn’t like what it was.

“I don’t know, man,” I said, waving a hand. “Type something. Whatever you’re thinking.”

“I want her to go out with me.”

“Then ask.”

With a horrible fascination, I watched Connor type, So, dinner?

“Jesus, dude,” I said.

“What? That’s exactly what you told me to do.”

“Not like that,” I said. “I told you she needs romance.”

I don’t know, she wrote. I have so much work to do already.

“Fuck,” Connor said. He nudged me with his phone. “Wes, man, you do it.”

I blinked. “Do what now?”

“Ask her out for me. The right way.”

I stared.

“Look, this girl is special. I’m not too proud to admit I need back-up getting things rolling with her.” He grinned that winning smile. “C’mon. Just this once.”

“But…”

Connor shoved his phone into my hand. “Come on, man. Do what you do. Write something witty and poetic. Something that’ll impress her enough to get me another text. Another…anything.” He clapped me on the shoulder. “Write something that knocks her on her ass and gets me in the door. That’s all I ask.”

I looked at Connor’s phone in my hand and Autumn Caldwell’s text, waiting for an answer. I felt my best friend’s expectations literally breathing down my neck as he leaned over me.

Ignoring the small ache in my heart, I thought about what I would’ve said to Autumn had it been my phone in my hand, and began to type.

REVIEW ~ RICHER THAN SIN by Meghan March

 

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.

A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.

Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.

I didn’t know or care what her name was.

Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.

She hates me, and she should.

I objected on her wedding day.

Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.

They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.

I’ll never be done with her.

Richer Than Sin was still sitting on my Kindle three days after release unread. And believe you me, for this diehard fan of March’s, the temptation to pick the first book in the Sin Series was excruciatingly hard, but sometimes life gets in the way, doesn’t it? When one of my book buddies wished me good luck with the cliffy, her comment built up my anticipation up even more. Lol, she knows who she is and had no shame goading me! I dived in with an open mind, something all of us bibliophiles do and just plain wow! There’s no beating around the bush with this author’s modus operandi! The beginning of the book was like being thrown in at the deep end and my biggest mistake was starting it a daft o’clock. Did I get any shut-eye? No! One tease after the other presented itself, each page so titillatingly engaging, it was like a race to get to the end. Was the sleep deficit worth it? Absolutely!

Now, if you’re familiar with my reviews, you’ll know they’re never short. But this time I’d rather get to the point and not enter into too much detail regarding her two protagonists’ story. Let’s see if this is possible because I do tend to get carried away with myself when I’m enthusiastic about a read! March never fails. In awe of her writing, every new publication gets better and better, her plot and character development, stronger and stronger. Don’t doubt her mastery penmanship for one single minute. In this book, she’ll awake your every emotion, give you all the feels only to put you through the wringer, leaving you breathless or worse, wanting to give your Kindle a good bashing!

Lincoln Riscoff and Whitney Gable’s devastating journey begins as youngish adults. What I really, really liked was the structural writing technique. Even though their story flips back and forth in time, the past lays down the foundation for what could or could not happen, is evenly paced, and is ridiculously gripping. One thing is for sure, these guys detonate explosive steaminess. However, dramatic heart-wrenching scenarios abound, making me feel as if what they’d got would never have a chance to grow.

A family feud goes back many generations. And it’s sad that they had to suffer the repercussions of their elders’ actions. A real individual and a half, Lincoln’s grandfather pulls the strings, constantly reminds his grandson of the rules and is a totally unlikable character. This man drove me up the wall as did Lincoln’s brother. Hmm… a nasty piece of work, there’s no love lost between the two of them, either.

From the wrong side of the track, Whitney is easy to fall for. She’d made a bad decision, eats humble pie and goes back to her roots, well-knowing the person she doesn’t want to lay eyes on could be there. She has every reason to be wary but after a gap too long, needs to connect with family members who cherish her, who she loves. I had moments of profound sadness when reading her thoughts, how she felt about herself and how the entire catch 22 situation she was in affected her. Despite wanting a semblance of normalcy in her life, I felt that whichever way she turned the cards were stacked against her.

Right, ladies! Prepare yourselves for Lincoln. Don’t you always find a well-dressed man more attractive? Well, since you’ve all probably battered your eyelashes at the guy on the cover, coming to the conclusion that he doesn’t need a suit is indeed, a certainty. He’s always known what he wants. Trouble is, neither his wealth nor a steadfast determination is on his side. The twists went beyond my expectations, the turns left me floored and it’s not over!

I can’t recommend one-clicking enough. March has woven a nail-biting affaire de cœur, a romance which might or might not see the light of day. She’s given her readers the rough with the smooth, smiles and tears entwined with trust issues in an exceedingly well-thought-out-story. By the way, Whitney’s cousin sold me! A saga which has much more than even the best dramatic TV series, I am so looking forward to the 18th of September, the release of Guilty As Sin. Bravo March!

 

GUILTY AS SIN coming 18th September

That’s the way the world works, right?

I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable.

The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.

If only I could forget just how easily Lincoln Riscoff can drag me under his spell.

I can’t tell you how nervous I was when I picked up this book. I had no idea what to expect since in Reiss fashion, leaving her readers hanging on a precipice in all of her series is what she does, and exceedingly well I might add. Bloody hell, this is serious business. Did Grayson’s actions have an impact on her or Caden? Well, you’ll only find out what happens by reading this thrilling four-book series plus Cutting Edge: The Edge – Prequel. I never wanted it to end. Every installment is unputdownable and if it were ever possible, this one is even grittier and more mind-blowing.

What Grayson had done was out of love without any thought for her well-being, only for her husband’s. I shouldn’t have been surprised since this woman has proved herself to me time and time again that boundaries of any kind don’t exist as far as Caden is concerned. On rare occasions have I come across a heroine so selfless, determined and unwavering. She’ll do anything in her power to save him; however, her spontaneity had an unforeseen backlash. With the tables turned, she’s up against the biggest challenge of her life; their survival as a couple and much more besides. Although now, so to speak, it’s out of her hands.

“I knew it the first time I saw your face. You were a promise kept. I knew that if I let you go, I’d be breaking.” 

Caden and Grayson breathe the same air and are in perfect sync with each other. If this book had been written with their unspoken words, I would have easily been able to decipher them. Having said that, the clock is ticking and becomes their worst enemy, a nightmare they have to face head-on. Being between a rock and a hard place, Caden is forced to grab the bull by the horns only making himself vulnerable to his superiors. Nor he or I ever doubted his wife’s needs come first. They are above and beyond any kind of technical inference, she is his to defend and protect.

‘Shirking duty went against every fiber of my being—except the ones that prioritized Greyson.’ 

It figured in Broken Edge that trust issues with a certain person abounded. In this read, an unexpected twist presented itself, leaving me aghast to a point where I wanted to throttle this individual. Yep, Kindle bashing thoughts ran deep!

“I’m just a doctor. But I promise you… if you separate us, I will find a way to destroy you.” 

Reiss has developed multiple levels of tension that build up at such a speed, I felt as if I were on a helter-skelter spiraling out of control. I had loss of breath, had to reread passages stunningly beautiful, others provokingly heartbreaking. Sitting back, I thought about the consequences, highlighted, jotted down notes and put my hands together not in applause which will come later, but in sheer fear. Every chapter was like… what the heck is coming next, when will it end? The setting is harsh, the rules even harsher. Everything is balanced on scales which could sway either way.

‘My fears had no boundaries. Fears with shape and weight were the demons of a sound mind.’ 

Putting into words how much I adored this book was really difficult. After revising my review, I still felt I hadn’t done it justice; that that key element was somehow missing. No less…my feelings. So here goes. Although this series became my spring/summer reading obsession, Over The Edge wowed the pants off me. My husband even asked me why I was talking to myself and I had no trouble explaining why. Reiss’ doesn’t just write a book, she puts her heart and soul into it. Her phrases are prose in motion, purposeful poetry only she can pull off to a tee, leaving this reader in awe of her penmanship.

‘All I could do was give her the one thing she needed, the only thing I had. Me. My time. My body. My love.’ 

As you may have noticed, at no point have I mentioned the ending. Not one to let on, what I can guarantee is it will bring out all the feels and emotions you never thought you had in you. My biggest wish is you’ll give the entire series a chance. I also have to add that I’m not into dark genre but this book isn’t dark, it is splendid! Erotica at its best, gripping, antsy…gosh, I’m running out of adjectives! You’ll find you won’t be able to turn the pages quick enough to keep up with Caden and Grayson’s love story, and I sincerely hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did. Do I love these two people made for each other more than I already had? Gosh, yes! Bravo Reiss, simply bravo!

Synopsis

From NYT Bestseller Corinne Michaels & USA Today Bestseller Melanie Harlow, comes a second chance standalone romance.

Ian Chase broke my heart at seventeen, and I’ve spent the last eighteen years hating him for it.

He makes it easy, with his smart mouth and playboy lifestyle—which I unfortunately have to observe since he lives behind me. Every time I see him climbing out of his pool, practically naked and unreasonably sexy, my blood boils.

I’ve always loved to loathe him.

I never planned to need him.

***

London Parish is my little sister’s best friend, not that it stopped me from falling for her.

Our history is complicated. The only thing we have in common is being godparents to my sister’s three adorable kids—until our lives are changed in one tragic moment.

Now we’re trying to raise the children we love, mourn an unthinkable loss, and fight an undeniable attraction.

My life is already upside-down, and the last thing I need is for old feelings to resurface.

Because I’ll never be able to keep her, no matter how hard I try to hold her close.

He lives next door to London and the only thing they have in common is their love for Sabrina (London’s best friend and Ian’s sister) and her family. Ian can’t stand London’s judgmental and snarky attitude and steers clear of her as much as he could.

One might think that London and Ian’s story is your stereotypical second chance romantic tale and in a way it is, some scenes are almost predictable but there is a twist to this one. Ian’s character as a teenager was a douche, he was more antagonist than protagonist and it’s only in the latter part of the book that he redeems himself. London’s bitter and disparaging attitude towards Ian I can understand, especially with what happened in the past although bearing a grudge for almost twenty years seems petty and I felt like telling her to move on already. Their dislike towards each other ends abruptly when something happens. What I also loved about this funny and touching romance are the secondary characters because they added more weight to the story and gave the couple some home truths and the necessary kick up their backsides.

“You were always so angry, but Dad used to say that when you’re mad at someone, it’s because you care so much you can’t explain it, so you become angry”. 

This collaboration ticks out all the boxes: romance, tragic event, children and dramatic showdown. However, even if you have all the necessary “ingredients” in plotting an epic love story, it is how these authors tell the tale and they did a fantastic job. Ian and London’s love and hate relationship gives you so many highs and some lows, one minute you think your heart is just coasting along and in the next, you’re bawling your eyes out. Angry, sad and gloriously happy you get all these in this book, I highly recommend it.

Looking back, I should have seen the signs. Perhaps I did, but I subconsciously chose to ignore them.

From the time I was ten, when I first met Dylan, I knew he was my forever guy. Back then, I couldn’t put words to what I was feeling, but, as the years progressed, I came to recognize it for what it was—soul-deep love. The kind only very few people ever get to experience. Dylan was more than just my best friend, my childhood sweetheart, my lover.

He was my soulmate.

We were carved from the same whole—destined to be together forever.

Until he changed.

And I believed I was no longer good enough.

Until he shattered me so completely, it felt like I ceased to exist.

And I’d never experienced such heart-crushing pain.

Until he leveled me a second time, and I truly wanted to die.

But I had to stay strong because I wasn’t alone in this cruel twist of fate.

I look to the sky, pleading with the stars, begging someone to tell me what I should do because I don’t know how to deal with this. I don’t know how to cope when my forever has changed, and I can’t help wondering if I had seen the signs earlier, if I’d pushed him, would it have been enough to save us?

Or had fate already decided to alter our forever?
