I’m a man without a conscience.

I’m the best at what I do.

Frankie Helburn is supposed to be an easy job.

A means to flush her father out of hiding.


Except there isn’t anything simple about Frankie or the secrets she’s keeping.

She’s stubborn as hell and the sexiest god damn thing I have ever seen, sending dark, dirty animalistic desire coursing through my veins.

She’s cocaine with legs. A f*cking addiction that makes me question things I’ve never questioned before. Want things I’ve never wanted before.

I might have her, but she isn’t mine to keep.

If her father doesn’t show his face, she will be mine.

An emotional and unforgettable new romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr. The Thing About Love releases on JANUARY 3rd!


ADD to your TBR 

The whole stethoscope-and-white coat thing isn’t my cup of tea.

I prefer a man with an artistic vein in his body. 9 – 5 hours. And I can definitely do without the half-lidded, sleepy bedroom eyes. (Okay, so those are kind of sexy.)

Tall, dark, and handsome doesn’t change the fact that he’s arrogant, cocky, and rude.

Not that I care, but he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with a quirky girl like me, which is why he said no.

Turns out no isn’t an option.

I have a quickie wedding to plan, and Dr. Jake Kissinger doesn’t have a choice. He looks at our situation like he’s stuck with me, but in reality I’m stuck with him. Stuck with his pouty mouth. His long, lean body. And stuck with those loose, low riding scrub pants. (Okay, so the doctor thing is growing on me.)

When spending time together turns into more than it should, I know I’m in trouble.

He isn’t supposed to make my heart pound.

I’m not supposed to make him look twice.

And we aren’t supposed to spend the night together. (Okay, so he has more than one artistic vein in his body, and other places.)

Falling for him is definitely a mistake.

Here’s the thing…

Jake is unavailable, and I know it.
Just not in the way you might think.

I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too.


Meet Kim:

Kim Karr is a New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author.

She grew up in Rochester, NY and now lives in Florida with her husband and four kids. She’s always had a love for reading books and writing. Being an English major in college, she wanted to teach at the college level but that was not to be. She went on to receive an MBA and became a project manager until quitting to raise her family. Kim currently works part-time with her husband and recently decided to embrace one of her biggest passions–writing.

Kim wears a lot of hats! Writer, book-lover, wife, soccer-mom, taxi driver, and the all around go-to person of her family. However, she always finds time to read. One of her favorite family outings was taking her kids when they were little to the bookstore or the library. Today, Kim’s oldest child is seventeen and no longer goes with her on these, now rare and infrequent, outings. She finds that she doesn’t need to go on them anymore because she has the greatest device ever invented–a Kindle.

Kim likes to believe in soul mates, kindred spirits, true friends, and Happily-Ever-Afters. She loves to drink champagne, listen to music, and hopes to always stay young at heart.

I write romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models.

I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.

Meghan Quinn:


Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

​Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Carter Murphy a 26-year-old has moved back to her parents after getting betrayed in the worst way possible. Dependable and moulded into the perfect wife for Joseph who was heading into a career in politics, only to be dumped spectacularly as he slept with her so called best friend and subsequently made her pregnant. Carter has always played it safe with her life being what she thought others wanted her to be, until she sees the hot guy at her sister’s engagement party after drinking copious amounts of champagne. Carter does something out of character and drags the stranger to the hallway where she goes in for a steamy kiss. Carter tells him she doesn’t want to know his name and she won’t give hers leaving him somewhat dumbfounded at this whirlwind.

Nick O’Shea. The college football star who also has his sights set on MMA fighting is a smooth talking, cocky guy who is used to getting his own way. A few months later after the kiss with the pretty girl in pink, he discovers Carter is the sister of his buddy Noah’s girlfriend Reagan. Nick has a reputation for being the life and soul of the party and an all-round fun guy but underneath it all, he wants to find that special girl. He is attracted to Carter and sets about breaking down the walls she has built up. To say he is relentless is an understatement. The two become firm friends but the passion and attraction between the two was palpable. I wasn’t fooled by Nicks persona; underneath it all there is a sweet, caring swoon worthy guy.

This romcom friends to lovers romance had some laugh out moments and a real feel good aura to it. Beautifully written with plenty of content to keep the reader entertained. This was reading escapism at its best. There are food references and  a song that stayed stuck in my head long after reading Drive. The fun-loving dialogue and banter between the two was well put together making me smile on more than one occasion. Drive also features some favourite characters from Punched and Penalty and it was lovely catching up with them. The attraction between the two was a slow burn, emphasising on getting to know each other and building a friendship mixed with sexual tension. The steamy moments happened; however it was great to have more of a story and character development because the chemistry just oozed from the pages.

I finished reading Drive with a huge smile and a fluttering heart. Its refreshing to have a real feel good read once in a while and this certainly hit the spot. The author did a fantastic job at capturing my attention from the first page right to the end. I couldn’t stop thinking about the book long after and it will be worth rereading just to have those funny moments all over again. Mr Chance tells the story in dual point of view and he certainly has a talent of putting together a great story. I don’t know how he comes up with all these ideas, but he is a storytelling genius and he deserves the five stars awarded for getting this book stuck in my head. I guess that’s his work done when that happens to a reader. Anyone that reads this is in for a real treat and all I can say is pick it up and get #Nickstracted like I did.

The British Knight, an all-new contemporary romance by Louise Bay is LIVE!!!


The British Knight by Louise Bay
Release Date: December 5th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

When I’m offered the chance to leave New York to live in London for three months, I can’t pack my suitcase fast enough.

As soon as I touch down I’m obsessing over red telephone boxes, palaces and all the black cabs.

But my favorite place is the tube. It’s wall-to-wall hot British men in suits.

When I’m offered a temporary job working for a barrister, I say, sign me up.

On my first commute into work, it’s a total accident when I lose my balance and fall against the most handsome Brit alive. He’s as charming as James Bond and as suave as Mr. Darcy. I want to lick tea from his hard abs and listen to his accent all night long.

Turns out Mr. Handsome is my new boss. And his attitude isn’t as hot as his gorgeous face, broad shoulders and tight ass. He’s brooding, short-tempered and the most arrogant man I’ve ever met.

As we’re fighting, out of nowhere he kisses me. And I’m pretty sure I see fireworks over Big Ben and hear God Save the Queen.

I wasn’t looking for the fairytale but I might have found my knight in shining armor. The problem is he lives an ocean away.

As always, Bay is true to her writing modus operandi. All her contemporary romances are standalones, but I can’t put into words how much I loved the reappearance of other characters from previous releases giving me that déjà vu experience. She does it in such a canny way that for those of you who haven’t read King of Wall Street, Park Avenue Prince or Duke of Manhattan will want to! And the book cover is no less titillating than the others!

Overall, The British Knight is a superb read; however, a third of the way in and I was itching for something I couldn’t quite put my finger on. At this point, I’d found the story’s pacing a tad slow, but it could well have been my impatience to ascertain how Alexander Knightly and Violet King’s story was going to pan out. I shouldn’t have been so concerned though. Halfway in and it had me engrossed! Regardless of the sizzling attraction written ‘à la Bay’ which I have to say, is brought out in full force, there’s a hell of a lot of ruminating going on; adding, of course, to the intrigue! Hence, the author’s narrative par excellence in past from both protagonists perspectives certainly gave me every opportunity to delve into her characters’ verbal stream of consciousness. Believe you me, it’s totally worth listening to their plans for the future! Do they coincide? Hmm…that’s for you to fathom out in a story that’s not new but most certainly has its hook effect.   

Alexander’s negative traits. It’d be easy to make a list as long as my arm; nonetheless, I’d much rather you meet this drop-dead gorgeous barrister and fathom them out for yourselves. I couldn’t help but like the man. Even though him being a workaholic and work ethics worried me to the point of frustration, his ideals were replaced with an infinite number of truly positive intentions. His controlling attitude at work contradicted his true personal feelings. It’s difficult to dispute someone so head-strong, who has to live up to personal expectations for one reason or another. Always partial to a suit, white shirt and tie, Alex wears them to fit like a second skin. Was his attire a false pretense? Did he know any better?

Violet. My-oh-my! Love at first sight would be putting it mildly. My kind of American heroine who has her head on her shoulders, who is all for the London experience. The first thing that came to mind is once bitten with a huge bite and try to forget about the past! So how did this gal verging on insolent grab me? Her backbone! Her being true to her beliefs and never wavering. An opportunity given with a bit of cajoling and she steps into an unknown ambience with her head high literally bowled me over. Intelligent and unpretentiously beautiful, she grasps the job offered with a no nonsense approach. Quite honestly, it was a joy to see her in action. Especially how she dealt sassy sarcasm out to Alexander who couldn’t have made her life more difficult. She’s a winner in my book, but…there is so much more than meets the eye in a love story of two totally contrasting people.   

Bay seduces the reader with her thrilling storytelling. She makes you sit back and think; she makes you pay attention, want to know more about the whys than the wherefores. Four strong stars for this sizzling romance which I highly recommend one-clicking! Bravo Ms Bay!
