Captain Carter and Kendall’s highly anticipated romance is finally here in Playboy Pilot by

New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

(A Standalone Novel)



*~ *~ *~ *~ *~ *~ *~ *~ *




From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Money or love? Which would you choose? 

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it’s an easy decision.

For me, it’s not. Did I mention it’s a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Then, he left.

I thought I’d never see him again.

But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter’s reputation were never far behind.

I didn’t know what to believe.

But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.

At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

KINDLE FRIENDS FOREVER: Reviewed by Rachel & Sharon Thérèse

Contemporary romance is simply these two authors’ thing! Hot alpha males you swoon over; heroines you’d gladly strangle or fall hard for and strong storylines with touches of humour in just the right places. After co-writing two books together, they became a partnership to be reckoned with. The title and gorgeous cover of their third book provoked a million and one dirty thoughts in us. . . oops, we’re a tad dirty-minded! And our excitement to read this new offering had us diving in as soon as Playboy Pilot landed on our Kindles. So why were we taken aback by this story? Well, investing in the heroine wasn’t going to be easy-peasy. Actually, she managed to throw us out of orbit.

“What’s this pin? Were you a good little boy on your flight or something?”

There is so much more behind the scenes and so much more behind Carter and Kendall. Getting to know how both of them ticked was an unexpected challenge. They have their hang-ups, have history and aren’t willing to give all and tell all at the drop of a hat. It takes a long while after a crazy pick up to even begin to fathom what they both want. And believe us, they do crazy to perfection. In fact, we found some of the scenarios verging on the absurd! The lack of prologue has to be mentioned at this point. One of us wasn’t keen on how the authors chose not to include one. The other didn’t have any problems since to her, it was clear from the very beginning of chapter one that the game was on. You’ll have to make your own minds up as to whether or not the book was missing one.

“You’re a sideliner.”


“You sit on the sidelines and watch your life happen. If you don’t play in the game, you can’t get hurt. Spectators are safe.”

Carter considers himself to be a lucky man. He loves his job, he’s drop-dead gorgeous, wears a uniform like it’s his second skin and charms the pants off his female colleagues without ado. Indeed, the girls virtually raffle for his affections causing much discussion and quite a bit of bitchiness. We couldn’t help not connect to Carter for one or three reasons! His way of looking at lifea lovely habit while lifting off makes his passengers smile but has an unknown and profound meaning behind it, his professionalism, and then discovering just how caring he is towards folk dear to him.

“Come fly with me beautiful.”

Kendall’s problem is an unusual one to say the least and time’s running out. She thinks she has it all under control and despite noticing a hesitancy on her part, she still managed to rub us up the wrong way. Since birth, the world had been at her feet. She’s never wanted for anything and did tend to come across to us as the spoilt heiress with a silver lining at her fingertips. So what the heck is she doing gallivanting around the world on spur of the moment? Besides needing a distraction from her what could be a life-changing decision, Carter’s proposition tickled her fancy. Even though she has a damn good idea he lives up to his reputation as a ladies’ man; yeah, he made it quite clear that in this department he’s more than served, his charming behaviour is convincing. So off she trots!

“Can I see the cockpit?”

“There’s nothing more that I would rather do than show you my cockpit. I thought you’d never ask.”

Their relationship is by no means insta-love which we’re eternally grateful to the authors for. The protagonists’ cautiousness when complications set-in was a very welcome and realistic factor, the steaminess sizzling of the pages from word go, off the charts. Plain sailing for Carter and Kendall, it is not. Humph. . . Kendall’s mother is a real stick in the mud, not a good influence and such a selfish and obnoxious person that we were glad how things eventually worked out as they did for her.

“Kendall, will you look at yourself for a moment? Think about how crazy this sounds from the outside looking in.”   

We take our hats off to Penelope and Vi for doing an about-turn in the plot regarding trust issues. How they were dealt was what we liked more in the story. That being said, how it ended seemed a little peculiar considering what Carter and Kendall had been through. The writing is as per usual; excellent, the editing impeccable and laugh out loud moments abound. The reason we awarded three stars is because some of the scenarios we simply couldn’t get our heads around. However, this doesn’t mean that the reader will have the same problem.  

“Oh my God. I thought I was dreaming.”
“You’re not.”

                            RELEASE DAY BLITZ                    SPIRALLING SKYWARDS by LESLEY JONES



Title: Falling

Author: Lesley Jones

Series: Spiralling Skywards #1 (Contradictions Series 1)

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: 20th September, 2016


GRs label



It only takes one defining moment.

One look.
One dance.
One conversation.
Sarah knows from the second she meets Liam that their connection is more than just instant attraction. It’s deep, it’s consuming, and has the potential to be the real thing. But true love comes at a price.
Fuelled by Liam’s past, Sarah’s issues, and a messy web of family ties, business partnerships, and exes, the combined forces threaten to snuff out their new found relationship. Will that spark be smothered by outside forces? Or will they be carried like smoke from the ashes and sent spiralling skywards?

Written in Lesley Jones’ usual heartfelt, witty, and emotional voice, this dual point of view story is just the beginning of her Spiralling series. Look for book two, late 2016.




Kindle Friends Forever: 5 Spiralling Stars ~ Reviewed by Donna

I love Lesley’s writing and couldn’t have been happier when the beautiful cover stared back at me on my Kindle. I’ve read all this author’s books as she’s an expert at pulling on my heartstrings, touching my inner feelings and getting me invested in all her characters in an instant. If that’s not enough, putting her books down is an impossibility and this is exactly the case with Spiralling Skywards. Told from both protagonists’ points of view which I also love, I started reading Lesley’s new offering with great expectations and wasn’t let down in the slightest.

Figuratively speaking, the attraction between Sarah Carter and Liam Delaney is so passionate that it nearly burnt a hole in the pages! But their new relationship’s going to be tested by outside influences. There are a lot of negative goings on and far too many complications for their new relationship to grow at a pace they would have liked. Liam is Sarah’s brother’s business partner, Luke. He is older than his sister, highly protective of her, and this is one of the reasons for them keeping their affair quiet. I truly understood why they’d decided to not to let on and you’ll only find out by reading the book.   

So the two get to know each other in secret. What I thought at first is how Sarah came across strong in one way but beneath the surface, she was like a broken little girl and extremely naïve. Liam is a hot, sexy man and is a lot more experienced, and a bit of a baggage made me wonder how it was going to unravel.

There are some extremely sizzling moments between the two that will make the reader’s toes curl. Lesley certainly knows how to write a steamy scene. I didn’t warm to Sarah straight off but as the story unfolded, I understood her more and began to warm to her. Liam. Well. . .  I was instantly attracted to him myself! The side characters Sasha, Luke and Will, even Sarah and Luke’s grandparents are fabulous folk and I’m hoping there will be more of them in the next instalment.

Sarah and Luke Carter hadn’t had an easy childhood. Discovering what they’d been through gave me an indication as to why were like they were and I couldn’t have sympathised with them more. I loved the banter which had me smiling and the closeness between them, too.

I have to mention the music. One track that Sarah and Liam called their own has become very special to me. There’s a Spotify playlist to complement the book that is absolutely marvellous. Despite thinking throughout how different this read is to what Lesley normally writes, it’s still a rollercoaster of happenings and emotion that we get in all her books.

Five spiralling stars are awarded although I was bordering on four. After letting the story sink in and listening to the playlist, it left me thinking and desperate for the second part in the series. When a story makes me feel like that, it’s worthy of this rating. I realise now that it’s going to get people thinking and desperate to get their hands on the follow-up. Cleverly written and full of twists and turns, I don’t doubt a couple of surprises are on the cards for us.

                              RELEASE DAY BLITZ                                 NITRO’S TORMENT by NINA LEVINE




Tatum Lee is a pain in my ass.
She’s stubborn, full of attitude, and she doesn’t like to do what she’s told.
And yet, at a time when I should be focusing on the war my club is at, she consumes my mind because she’s also fearless and fierce, and I’ve never met a woman like her.

The thing about war, though, is the minute you let your focus drop, your enemy rises up and attacks. And sometimes they bring you to your knees in ways you never imagined.

The other thing about war? You learn just what you’re capable of doing to protect those you love.

I sat next to him. I wasn’t sure why except that for the first time since I’d met him, he seemed like he needed someone. Even if it was just to sit with him. I stole a glance at his face. It was hard to find skin under all the dried blood. “I take it the other guy lost.”

He held my gaze for a long time before answering me. God, how I wondered what thoughts ran through Nitro’s mind. It felt like he either ran from them or got lost in them, but I wasn’t convinced he was often comfortable with them. Something we had in common. “That depends on your definition of winning.”

I didn’t need him to spell it out for me. And I didn’t push him for more. Instead, I walked into the bathroom. Locating a clean washer in the drawer, I wet it and walked back out to him. Standing in between his legs, I began the task of cleaning up his face.

This was something I knew well. My brother had often turned up on my doorstep in this state. Caring for him had always been my responsibility. How could it not be when his journey in life had been dictated by my own?

Nitro hissed when I accidentally pressed too hard on his cheek. His hand landed on mine and he halted my progress. “I can do this myself.”

I pulled my hand away from his face. “Yeah, you can, but I’m doing it, so just let me.”

“Always arguing with me,” he murmured, allowing me to go on.

I worked in silence and when I’d cleaned the blood from his face, I said, “I’m going to get some ice for your face. Wait here.”

I hurried down to the bar because I figured he had work to get back to and no time to waste. Kree loaded me up with ice and a towel to wrap it in. When I arrived back in his room, he was in the shower. He didn’t take longer than a few minutes and when he exited the bathroom wearing only a towel around his waist, I sucked in a breath at the magnificence of his body.

Nitro was a powerhouse of hard muscle that went hand-in-hand with his fearless warrior instincts. Standing before me, almost naked, his masculinity caught me off guard and a rush of desire hit me. My thoughts stalled and I momentarily forgot what I was doing. All I could focus on was the throbbing need deep in my core. A new hum filled my entire being, unlike anything I’d ever felt before.




“You got ice?” His deep voice snapped me from my hypnosis.

“Ah… yeah,” I mumbled, shoving the towel with the ice in it at him, almost dropping it as I did so.

He frowned, his eyes searching mine. “You good, Vegas?”

Fuck, no, I wasn’t.

I was fucked.


I nodded, swallowing hard. “I’m good.”

I was so far from good.

I wanted something I didn’t want to want.

I wanted him.

How the hell did my world turn in such a short space of time? What the fuck triggered that? Because whatever it was, I needed to un-trigger it.

He took the ice from me and turned to head back into the bathroom, grabbing clothes on the way. I was helpless to do anything but watch him walk away. My eyes stayed glued to the powerful muscles that built his back. And that ass. God, that ass. Even covered in a towel it was hard not to stare at.

I was so engrossed in his back and ass that he caught me off guard again when he dropped the towel and dressed without closing the bathroom door.

Fuck it, I was out. I yanked the bedroom door open and left as fast as I could. I needed to find a quiet corner and gather my thoughts. I needed to wipe everything that had just happened from my memory. Somehow, though, I suspected Nitro was not a man to ever be wiped from a woman’s memory.
