synopsis

The whole world might be in love with him. But all he’s ever loved is her.

Grant Turner’s name is synonymous with football. The fans and media can’t get enough of the player known as The Invincible Man, a nickname he earned while growing up in one of the toughest neighborhoods in the country and the nickname he’s kept by being one of the best players in professional football today. No one can take him down. He’s unstoppable.

But even a suit of armor has its weak point, and Grant’s has always been Ryan Hale.
They were a couple of kids when they fell in love, and just when it looked like the happy ending neither expected was within reach, Ryan disappeared. No explanations. No good-byes.

Grant coped by throwing himself into the game for seven years, and he’s finally moved on. Or so he thinks.

When she walks back into his life, all of those feelings come crashing back, despite the warnings in his head that tell him she’ll leave him again. Grant can withstand the league’s toughest defensive line, but he’s always been weak where she’s concerned.

No man can take Grant Turner down.

But one woman certainly can.

One woman will.

SYNOPSIS

Camila was seventeen when Van Quiso kidnapped her. Ten years after her escape, the shackles refuse to release her. Not while there are still slave traders preying on her city.
She will stop at nothing to end them.
Even if that means becoming a slave again.

Returning to chains is her worst fear—and only option. They won’t know who she is or what she intends to do. She’s prepared for every complication.
Except him.
The one who decimated her sixteen-year-old heart.

Matias is charming, gorgeous, and dangerously seductive. He’s also untrustworthy and enshrouded in secrets. After years of no contact, he finds her—on her knees, wrists bound, in the clutches of her enemy.
Will he sabotage her mission by needlessly saving her?
Or will he keep her in chains and never let her go?

DISCLAIM is book #3 in the DELIVER series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but if you intend to read the preceding books, do not read DISCLAIM first.

 

Kindle Friends Forever 4.5 ★ Review by Rachel & Sharon Thérèse

Disclaim can be read as a standalone; however, if you haven’t read book one and two and want to, we recommend that you don’t read Disclaim first. After reading the synopsis which titillated our curiosity no-end, we decided to give it a chance without having any idea about how we were going to cope with past events, names, dates and places. Our concern was most certainly unfounded since the author went to great lengths to make sure the new reader understood the storyline. Reading in third person was also quite a challenge for us. We have to confess that this narrative technique which gives an omniscient point of view isn’t one of our favourites. We find it so much easier to relate to first person from a personal perspective. Again, we shouldn’t have been concerned. After reading the first few chapters, to say we’d become totally invested in the characters would be putting it lightly. Another important factor is the dialogue. Flowing constantly, it helped us immerse into their quest.

As far as reviewing goes together, we’re a classic case of Yin and Yang. Our tastes in genre are very similar; however, one of us isn’t overly enthusiastic regarding this type of read. Me, Sharon; asked Rach to hold my hand. Rach well knows how I feel about dark-subject-matter. Me, Rach; told her to put her big girlie pants on and knuckle down. The advice was taken and there was no looking over our shoulders. Goodness, there’s some really nail-biting moments. Gritty, no doubt about it… an eye-opener into shady organisations’ modus operandi, most definitely. Neither of us expected Camila, Nico and Matias’ story to pan out as it did.

“I won’t tell you to trust me. You’re not there yet. But I want you to listen.”

Two of the protagonists had had a history long way back. And although it’s beautifully depicted, the truth as to why their lives were turned upside down and inside out gets lost in a grove of circumstances. Entwined in deception, many questions we had at the beginning slowly come to a head and literally knocked our socks off. Ooh boy, we felt Camila’s ire simmer off the pages! Driven by a past experience, she courageously walks into the unknown putting her life on the line causing us an infinitive amount of stress. Whether her crusade was going to have positive results or not added one hell of a lot of angst to the story.

“If you get yourself killed, I’m going to hunt you in hell and blister your fucking ass. Here me?”

“Noted.”

Like the person he is, even Nico’s surname is a mystery. Gorgeous, in control and feared, when he did have something to say, we hung on to his every word. It was clear to see the camaraderie between Nico and Matias had routes. Just a look at each other is enough for them to know what the other is thinking. In fact, in some scenes we were shocked to see how they didn’t bat an eyelid. Trying to fathom out the reasons behind their seemly tight relationship wasn’t an easy feat for us; until of course, the truth is revealed. We can assure you that we weren’t the only ones to be left with our mouths wide open!

“If Nico tells you to do something and you ignore him, he cannot let that slide.”

Did we doubt Matias and his ways of submerging the love of his life into his world? Hmm. . . we had no option but to put our faith in him. Holy moly! How he goes about reconquering the woman who’s been kept in the dark for so long was abso-freakin’-lutely fantastic! This guy is not only lethal, he’s also a walking-time-bombshell of the first degree. He’ll go to any lengths to eradicate anyone who messes with his people. And you’ll see his principles aren’t at all what they seem. Get ready for some huge twists in this story! They are of such importance that to mention them would be a crying shame. So mum’s the word!

“You’re not going to make this easy on me, are you?”

“The best rewards are the hardest to earn.”

We would have loved a playlist. No amount of good songs came to mind. One of them being Police’s song, Every Breath You Take. We loved the secondary characters who back Matias and Camila up throughout the story, and despite the plot being a tad farfetched, it’s really well-developed. This we easily excused since it had us sitting on the edge of our seat from the first page until the very last. Hence, if you like non-stop action thickly coated in emotions, explicitly described scorching hot scenes, one-click! Bravo Ms. Godwin for this marvellous offering.

BOOTY CAMP COVER

 

BOOTY CAMP SUMMARY

 

Booty Camp Dating Service is a wildly successful matchmaking company. The twist? Well, Wolf (who inherited his gift for seeing potential love) is NEVER wrong when he matches people.

He’s sexy but stays behind the scenes, letting his buddy, Chance do all the talking while he matches the clients at parties and events. Booty Camp Dating Service travels the country, and nine months after they leave the city there’s always a flurry of weddings and an accompanying baby boom. Booty Camp claims that clients will be 110% satisfied and they deliver on that promise every single time.

Except Wolf refuses to deliver on that guarantee for himself. He doesn’t find love until Hazel’s best friend pushes her through his front door. Now all he wants to do is make sure Hazel is 110% satisfied…in his bed. Which, ironically, would break the very rules Wolf demands of his employees–no dating clients, ever. So instead, Wolf and Hazel fight. And kiss. And fight some more.

Will Wolf’s own rules make him the very first Booty Camp Happily Never After? (Book Camp Dating Service is a STAND ALONE!)

 

BOOTY CAMP EXCERPT

 

Wolf pulled her close so her chest was pressed into his and used his other hand to throw everything off his desk, including the light. It tossed interesting shadows around the room, but her magnificent face was highlighted, and that was exactly what he needed. He kissed her while laying her gently back on the desk.

“Hey.” Hazel stopped him, and he waited to see what she needed while panting a bit. “Don’t be gentle, for fuck’s sake.”

He stood up and looked at the wall for a second, running his hands down his face.

“Am I too much for you?” she asked.

He heard the hint of self-conscious seeping in. And that was criminal.

He crawled on top of the desk, caging her between his hands and knees.

“No. My problem is that I want a bed. And maybe some rope and lots of lube and good music and a few things that vibrate in a drawer close by. I want to make you come on my face so hard you think you’re dying and this”—he looked around his office—“is none of that.”

Hazel’s returning bravado made her eyes sparkle. “Surely a man that runs a dating service can be creative when he needs to be?”

His only reply to her dare was to put her nipple in his mouth while massaging between her legs with one hand. With the other he balanced above her perilously on the narrow desk. His knees were close to the edge, hemming her in.

She bucked against his hand and hissed at him. “Get to work, then.” She grabbed his face and pulled it back up to her mouth.

Kindle Friends Forever: Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse

Four  Stars

I can’t ever recall reading a book with such an original plot. The author’s work held my attention from the beginning to end and is indisputably descriptive. Her humorous and at times, absurd prose had me gulping for air after laughing my head off. Her character development is also second to none. The different situations her protagonists find themselves is in all honestly, scarcely credible. However, one never knows if in the future, a dating service on this line becomes a reality. I most certainly felt like I was participating in the events and thoroughly enjoyed myself!

“Actually, those guys aren’t your match. Um… your match wasn’t able to make it tonight.”

Wolf Saber is a scrupulous man and practices what he preaches. I couldn’t help but respect him for his non-fraternizing policy between employees and clients. Although I did got a tad mad with him for bending those very rules that held him back, I eventually forgave him because someone very dear found their better half in an instant. Yes, there’s an overdose of insta-love in this story and you’ll see why his generosity and matchmaking skills abound in mysterious ways. Okay, signing up on the bottom line guarantees one hundred and ten percent satisfaction. Lol, loved the ten percent extra which will be the cause for hilarious discussion. Wolf never fails. Or does he?

“You’re a tough lady to satisfy. We might need a car battery and jackhammer, so I hear.”

This drop-dead gorgeous savvy businessman is so damn dateable it’s flipping ridiculous. I’d be his first candidate, but it was a hard case of looky-looky, no touchy-touchy! Horrendously grumpy, he doesn’t consider himself worthy of a solid relationship for various reasons to be divulged. One of them I can tell you about since it won’t spoil the story for you. It’s all work and no play making Wolf an extremely dull boy! By now, all the chips were down in by book. So why did my heart flutter, or why did I even bother to worry about his well-being? Despite him being pig-headed and a one-eyed fool when it boils down to his own personal life, I truly thought he’s destiny was just around the corner. And blind men walk in regardless of what is facing them. Deep down, he knew this. Denying the ways of the heart would be deceiving everything he’d been brought up to believe in.

“Of course this stealer, stealer, pumpkin peeler will pay the fare.”

Hazel Lavender has been cajoled by her bestie and she’s not a happy bunny. Ooh boy, her angsty vibes simmered off the pages. She puts up a front and tries to please. She goes with the flow and pays a small fortune hoping just maybe, her broken heart will be repaired. Hazel is so lovely, so cool-headed and so sceptical that I couldn’t help but to connect with her. Who wouldn’t after what she’s been through! By the way, I hated her ex so much I wanted to bash him on the head! So she’s swayed into this proposition which sounds dodgy to her ears but as she’s a nice person, she wants to give her friend the benefit of the doubt. Find the love of her life and thanks very much to yours truly wasn’t exactly how it worked out though. Ouch! Kick ass or what, isn’t in it! She demands, no… stamps her feet at what she thinks is a con and gets herself into situations you would never be able to conjure up in a million years. I loved this gal to smithereens and cheered her on no-end. But, and the huge but here is there’s a stubborn man who leads her on without even trying. His eventually throws down a gauntlet of sorts causing both of them unimaginable and conflicting thoughts.

“Well, Miss Lavender, you certainly know how to get your money’s worth.”

Aha, all is not what it seems in this story. The first kiss is indescribable! Lol, Ms Anastasia made sure I felt it though! The bedroom scenes for a better word, are off the charts. It’s a hot and sticky steaminess that’s been offered, so get your biggest fan out or put the aircon on high while reading. The secondary characters play a huge part, not all of them were to my liking which is what one expects in any read.

“Tell me why you kissed me?”
“I didn’t like the way you looked at your feet when they came into the lobby.”
“A pity kiss? How much is does the cost me?”

So where’s that missing star to make up a five star rating? I had a small problem with the usage of personal pronouns; however, sometimes this is unavoidable when stories are narrated in third person. This writing technique certainly helps the reader identify who is saying or doing whatever. That being said, I have to give a huge bravo to the author for entertaining me big time.

LONG LIVE THE KING INTERVIEW BANNER 1

FOREWORD

We hope you’ll enjoy reading our interview with someone who has become very special to us. Author WS Greer’s An Italian Mafia Duet series has conveyed Dominic Collazo in such a light that our opinion of him in the second book to be published soon has changed a tad, too. Itching to publish our review of the follow up to Kingpin would be putting it mildly. However, we don’t want to jump the gun! Excuse the pun but just for the sake of a good fight Dominic is going to put up, we’re going to find out what makes the man behind Dominic’s story tick.

1) Kingpins are the bad boys in Mafia novels Dominic. But your stance is slightly different to what we’re used to. Why is that? 

I don’t think my stance on it is different.  I understand this lifestyle because I’ve been a part of it since I was a little kid.  When I got beef with a Russian, they can be killed indiscriminately because they’re outsiders.  When it’s somebody in Our Thing, there’s rules.  But when it comes to Alannah, fuck the rules.

2) You’re considered the Boy Wonder and earned a very responsible position at such a young age. Don’t you think this is unusual in the Mafia hierarchy?

It is unusual, but that’s because I’m one of a kind.  There will never be another boss my age.  After everything the Family went through after my father died, I was the best choice to bring us back to life in the mid-west. 

3) Your mob bosses weren’t happy with your relationship with Alannah. Was it because she wasn’t family?

I guess, but I don’t fucking care, so it don’t really matter. Frankie saw her as a distraction, and I saw Frankie as annoying, so it is what it is. In the end, it doesn’t matter.  Alannah is everything.

4) You had to make some difficult decisions and you’re a very proud man, so how did you feel about being betrayed?

Disrespected in the worst way. It’s common in Our Thing, so I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised. But everybody involved in my betrayal will feel my vengeance.

5) Fate plays a huge hand in yours and Alannah’s future happiness. It appeared to us that you had no compunction about bringing her into your life. Were you never conscience-stricken?

When Alannah’s life is in danger, I feel upset with myself for involving her in all my shit. But then that feeling turns to anger towards the person who tries to hurt me by hurting her.  

6) How did the constant tension affect your relationship with Alannah and the mob?

My relationship with Alannah has never wavered. My relationship with La Cosa Nostra may become difficult, but I can handle that.  In the end, I’m gonna do what I want, and everybody else will just have to deal with it.  

7) Were you not the least bit aware of who was behind certain goings on?

I had my suspicions, but in Our Thing, proof is everything.  The Commission doesn’t take unsanctioned murders lightly. It wasn’t until Alannah was in jeopardy that the rules to Our Thing went out the window.

8) Would you have done anything differently if you’d known?

Yeah, I would’ve killed everybody the second I became suspicious of them, rules be damned.

9) You made a life-changing decision at the end of LLtK. Could there have been another way out?

Nah. The circumstances being what they are, there was no other way out for me and Alannah. We needed this.

10) Are you happy?

Yeah. My life has changed a lot, and I get this gut feeling that I have eyes on me, but I’m happy. Some things just take some getting used to.

 

LONG LIVE THE KING BANNER 3

 

Thank you WS Greer for giving us this opportunity to interview you.

You’re more than welcome and the pleasure is mine.

KFF: This is a difficult question to answer for us bloggers because we’re sure that more than one of us are considered to be frustrated writers. Why did you decide to start writing?

Well, I was always into writing, it just wasn’t books.  Growing up, I was always writing songs and poems.  When I became an adult, I was still into music, but it costs way more than it pays, so I needed a change. Once I got big into reading, I had a desire to try writing my own book. 30 days later, I had Frozen Secrets finished! 3 years later, here I am with 8 books on the shelf!

 KFF: Are there any outside influences as to why you’ve chosen to write about the mob?

I have a weird infatuation with the Italian mafia. I think I may have been in the mob in a past life, seriously. I love mob movies, and to me, mobsters make the best bad-asses. 

KFF: It is more than obvious that you have done your homework regarding the Mafia. How did you go about it?

A whole lot of reading and watching movies. I’ve watched tons of documentaries about the mafia, particularly the 80’s and 90’s mob, which is why my mafia’s lingo sounds like theirs (fuhgeddaboutit).

KFF: Lol, Dominic’s expression is timeless. Back to books. Which one has influenced you most in your life?

When it comes to reading, I’m really not sure.  I’ve read so many, it’s tough to say at this point. But when it comes to writing them, nothing has changed me the way writing Kingpin did. Dominic was the first character that came to me before the rest of the story did, and people’s response to Kingpin was beyond anything I ever dreamed, so I know the way I went about creating Dominic and Kingpin is the way I need to do it from now on. So get ready for some seriously villainous characters going forward.

KFF: We’d love to know what’s on your TBR list!

Oooh, there’s a bunch. Let’s go with my most recent three: Fellside, by M.R. Carey, The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena, and King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard.

KFF: How often to you write and what time of the day are you most inspired?

I try to write every day, at least two hours a day. I prefer to write in the morning, but since I have a full-time job in the US Air Force, I write at night during the week, and in the morning on the weekends. Hopefully I can write full-time one of these days, then I can write in the mornings every day!

KFF: Do you brainstorm your ideas, let them stew for ages or go with the flow?

I brainstorm like there’s no tomorrow! I write everything down, and I have pages and pages of notes on my phone and my computer.

KFF: You must read a lot. What would you recommend to your readers?

The most recent books that blew me away are Red Queen and Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard.  Phenomenal books, and I can’t wait for book 3.

KFF: Are your book covers your ideas?

The photos for the covers are always 100% my idea, but the fonts and positions of the titles are all my outstanding cover designer’s idea. Love ya, Robin Harper!

KFF: Are you happy with the reviews you’ve had up to date?

Absolutely! There are always reviews that hit me like, “What the fuck?!?!  That makes no sense!” which is why I tend to stay away from reading them.  But my books are rated well, even the ones I’m not the proudest of. I’m very lucky to have the love I have, I’m just trying to get more!

KFF: Constructive criticism. How much importance do you give to this?

I need it even though I hate it. Long Live the King had a lot of revisions thanks to my awesome beta readers, and if they hadn’t told me there were things I needed to change, this book wouldn’t be what it is. So, it’s hard to take, but I always manage to get over myself and listen. Sometimes it takes a while, but I always get there eventually and do what’s best for the book.

KFF: Would you dare wipe out a whole chapter because your beta readers didn’t feel it went with the flow of the book?

For sure!  I did it in Long Live the King! Chapter 11 is not in the original manuscript for the book.  It literally changed 100%, and I switched POV’s multiple times in LLTK after listening to my betas.

KFF: Would you make major changes regarding the development of your characters’ personalities because your beta readers weren’t happy about it?

Yep, did it! Like I said before, I had a lot of critique about Dominic from my betas in LLTK.  I changed about 95% of Dominic’s chapters in LLTK.

KFF: Editing process. Is it perfect?

Nope, and never will be. I’ve paid for editors and they’ve still missed stuff.  My wife and I are both authors so we tag-team editing now, and we’re doing a pretty decent job I think. Plus we’re free, so it’s perfect!

KFF: Proofreading is considered to be an art. How much importance to you give it?

A ton. I’m proofreading nonstop, really.  Somehow, things always get missed, but we try to give it our full attention.

KFF: What do you think about the rating scale on Amazon and Goodreads and if you could, would you change it?

Umm, I’m not sure about this one. Some of the comments on the ratings are outright rude and strange. There have been times when I was sure the reviewer hadn’t even read the book. But it is what it is. If there was some way to prove you’ve read the book, that’d be nice.

KFF: What would you do to better your writing?

All you can do is keep writing. I try to get better with each book, and I have a newly developed process when it comes to building my characters now, so I think things are looking bright for the future!

KFF: Formatting. Who said that! How do you go about it?

Well my formatter, Christine Borgford, handles that.  She’s a beast, so I don’t have to give my two cents in that regard. She has that all figured out and I love every interior she’s ever done for me.

KFF: Would you consider doing trailers for any of your books?

Well, I’m working on making my teasers more like trailers. I like being different and unique. I’m not really interested in actual trailers with moving people and such, because I tend to skip over those when they’re in my timeline, so I assume most people do too.  But, if I can take a teaser and make it awesome and interesting, it’ll give me an edge and help my stuff stand out.  I’m working on that every day, and I’m actually about to post some new ones this week for LLTK.

KFF: Erotica, contemporary romance or suspense. Which genre would you choose first?

Suspense, without even thinking about it. I can’t read erotica, and I’ve tried writing it. Bad idea. So, for me, suspense is everything. I need suspense and psychotic characters, so that’s what the world can expect from me going forward. Suspense and villains! Stay tuned!  

KFF: Thank you WS Greer for being so candid with us and your readers, too! Looking forward to future reads from you.

longlivetheking SYNOPSIS

 

ALL IT TAKES IS A YEAR TO BUILD AN EMPIRE…

Dominic Collazo has taken the infamous Giordano crime family to even greater heights in the year since he became the boss. The Family is making more money than ever, and they’re doing it quietly. Things couldn’t be better for the young kingpin.

ALL IT TAKES IS LOVE TO FEEL LIKE YOU’RE ON TOP OF THE WORLD…

Alannah Sullivan may not have many friends, but when you’re lucky enough to spend your life with your soulmate, you feel untouchable. When the love of your life is the most powerful man in the city, you roll with the punches and proudly stand by his side.

ALL IT TAKES IS BETRAYAL FOR IT ALL TO COME CRASHING DOWN AROUND YOU…

There’s a traitor in The Family. Someone who knows everything. Someone who’s sabotaging business and bringing heat to Dominic that can only end in his fall from power. And everyone knows there’s only one way for a mob boss’ reign to end.

ALL IT TAKES IS A MOB KING WHO’S WILLING TO DIE TO PROTECT HIS QUEEN…

Dominic would never let anything happen to Alannah, no matter how dangerous things become, or how guilty everyone around him looks. Even if everyone he ever trusted turns against him and he has to burn it all down to save her. He’ll let it burn, even if saving her means he’ll be consumed by the blaze.

longlivetheking review

 

It’s not often that KFF review a book which hasn’t been offered to us as an ARC and we’re not exactly proud to admit it, either. There’s always one in hand and more often than not, with a deadline. Saying that, we couldn’t be more grateful to those who choose us to give our honest opinion. Seeing that there are so many authors’ works to discover and since one of our fave genres is Mafia romance, we one-clicked the first book, Kingpin. We went in blind, we were enthralled, we loved it! WS’s storytelling modus operandi, his writing talent to construe characters that toyed with our emotions made us sit back and think. WOW, this guy knows what he’s doing! And now we have the finale of an epic romance.

Firstly, I have to say how much I appreciated the author mentioning all the characters in the first chapter. Trying to remember who is who in a sequel can at times be a tad arduous. And then I was thrown into the thick of Alannah Sullivan’s problems. Defending the love of her life causes quite a dispute; her way of dealing with it certainly earned my respect. This sassy opinionated gal is not alone regarding her man’s charms. You can imagine who else is!

“Fuhgeddaboutit. Unfortunately, I know exactly what you mean.”

My first thought was would Dominic Collazo be able to live up to his reputation. Kings come and go, don’t they? I thought that maybe he’d gone a bit soft on me; however, I couldn’t have been more mistaken. He’s not the exactly same person I got to know, though. And seeing this slight change in him is quite understandable as he’s got other things on his mind. We were given a hint of things to come in the cliffy in Kingpin which figuratively speaking, made me throw a few choice words at the author! Still, in LLtK this snippet tangled and an event that follows slowly build up and is by no means in his favour. I certainly got the impression that strict rules within such an organised and tight-knit clan as is the Mafia weren’t going to be respected.

“The only reason you’re alive right now, is because I have all these fucking rules to follow.”

It becomes a make it or break it situation for Dominic with so much in play. Street-wise beyond his years, he prepares himself for the worst after Alannah voices her doubts about allegedly trustworthy people. Getting ready to take on the whole ‘system’, hands full juggling his legit businesses, his foremost worry is protecting the woman he loves. But would trying his hardest be enough? When the tough gets going, would she keep her thoughts to herself?

“Mercy? What are you, crazy? This is the Cosa Nostra, there is no mercy!”

Nevertheless, Dominic’s uncanny ability to sense imminent threats and where they lie will above all, help him to unravel a complex plot with all the odds against him. My, ooh my, in consideration of the foregoing, perhaps his negotiating skills were a tad, humph… unethical. I questioned his stance, but it didn’t take me long to realise that he had no option if he was going to survive the storm. A hell of a lot of the angst in his story; there is, and you definitely have to read LLtK to make up your own mind as to whether or not methods were correct.

“No matter what happens, we’ll figure it out together. We’ll beat all of this. Because we have to. Because this isn’t just you and me…”

I was left aghast towards the end of this read that has plenty of vividly described scenes. Surprises abound—good and not-so-good. The cause of such devious goings on and so close to home has its aftermath, too, and simply knocked me backwards. Now to sum up this sequel. Theirs is a beautiful thing. I adored how honest both of them were with their feelings. How Alannah accepts her man for what he is with his traits included was for me, of utmost importance. His dedication to her, their utter devotion to each other, sold me. How they strived to reach their goal showed me love conquers all. The supporting characters’ personality development cannot be ignored and to say I could’ve gladly strangled some of them would be putting it mildly. The lingo used is appropriate, the banter really good and the storyline flows at a pace that I found very much to my liking. Sadly, this is arrivederci Dominic and Alannah. Bravo WS!

KFF’s 5  Review HERE!

 

What a beautiful message from WS Greer. KFF would like to take this opportunity to wish him the very best for his new release!

“Well, I can’t believe we’re already doing the cover reveal for this book. Kingpin (An Italian Mafia Romance Duet #1) was such a success, I’m so excited for the sequel/completion. This book took me to places I’ve never been before in the writing process, and I can’t wait to see how people respond to it. I had success with doing exactly what I wanted with Kingpin, so I felt so comfortable doing it again with Long Live the King. It was like being on another planet when I was writing this one. I felt great, and I know it’s going to be a big one.

I’m releasing Long Live the King on September 5th, which is my 32nd birthday. Here’s hoping it’s a great day!! Get ready to be blown away. No, seriously. This book is going to blow you away! I’m living up to my logo!!”

It’s all fun and games until egos get hurt.

After a year of a seemingly happily-ever-after, Troy Babilonia throws a curve ball that smacks Larson Blackburn right in the head. When Troy’s debut novel, “Bridge to Lonely,” threatens to overshadow Larson’s own success, inviting a past shadow into the light of their present, the two alphas must learn to adjust.

“Bridge to Lonely” has garnered an unexpected success both in the literary world and in the film industry, forcing Larson to accept that he is not the only successful author in the building. But as Troy’s old flame decides to make an appearance, the two alphas are forced to test the strength of their love.

Let the battle of the egos recommence; where sarcasm is the preferred weapon, and the testosterone levels go beyond the boiling point.

Because Black Balled just wasn’t enough…Smith & LeNoir bring you Hard Edit.
