I didn’t mean to see him naked–it was an accident.

It had to be, right?

Because Noah McCormick and I have never been anything more than friends. In all the years I’ve known him, he’s never once laid a finger on me. And even though he was a cute lifeguard at 16 and a hotter-than-hell sheriff’s deputy at 34, he’s always been that protective guy I could trust to keep his hands to himself. I never wanted to mess with that.

Until I walked in on him getting out of the shower and saw his hard, muscular body totally bare and dripping wet. At that moment I never wanted to mess with anything so badly in my entire life.

I should have covered my eyes. Said I was sorry. At the very least, I could have handed him a towel.

After all, I was only in town for a few days, and he was just doing me a favor by escorting me to my sister’s wedding. It wasn’t a real date.

But I didn’t apologize. And he didn’t cover up.

(Talk about a hot mess.)

After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we’re insatiable.

He’s made it clear he’s not interested in romance. Which is fine with me because

I’ve got a plane ticket back to my real life at the end of the week.

It’s all in fun…or is it?

TOO GOOD AT GOODBYES by RC Boldt is LIVE!

Too Good at Goodbyes, an all-new standalone from RC Boldt takes us inside the life of Simone King, the “Ice Princess of Pop” and her new bodyguard, Kane Windham, who may be the only person to have the power to melt the ice around her heart.


First Top 40 hit at age seventeen? My first tabloid breakup scandal quickly followed.
Earned my first Grammy? Discovered Mommy Dearest was embezzling my money.
Landed a leading role in a movie? My fiancé called off our engagement the next day.

I might have a multi-million-dollar recording contract, a sold-out world tour, and more money in the bank than I ever imagined, but every time I hit a milestone in my career, my personal life suffers.

Then in steps my new bodyguard, rugged and with a past I connect with. The closer we get, the more powerful my feelings grow, complicating our professional relationship.

I thought Kane would be different. I hoped he’d be the one man to stand by my side, undaunted by the fame and attention that trails me.

The press calls me the “Ice Princess of Pop” because of my unyielding façade throughout heartbreak and betrayal. Perhaps it’s time to show them the real me.

With every syllable, I pour out my emotions and allow them to puddle, forming lyrics from my soul’s breath. And with each word, my broken heart cries out for Kane, begging him to help me break this pattern.

To help me stop being so damn good at goodbyes.

Once again this author manages to break my heart and feels into tiny splinters. As I’ve read several other books previously published I should by now be well acquainted with emotional earthquakes and heartbreaking tsunamis. Guess what? I wasn’t expecting to hurt as much as I did, not by a long shot.

Simone was a complex character, one who had risen to fame at a young age and had learnt to keep herself isolated. Safe, protected…until the chessboard alters and a new piece enters the game.

With any good book, emotions transfer from the characters to the reader. My breath was stolen over and over again. Raw, bloody, real. Too Good at Goodbyes had everything I have come to associate with this talented writer.

Realistic, life-like characters; thrown into the deep end of the pool and told to escape the man-eating sharks bearing down on their location. There is so much more I could say about Too Good at Goodbyes most of it would ruin this beautiful piece of work. I should really learn to not underestimate this author, congratulations and well done.

SIMONE

Present Day

The Super Bowl Halftime Performance
Hard Rock Stadium
Miami Gardens, Florida

Facing what’s estimated to be over sixty-seven thousand people with my favorite guitar strapped snug against me, I prepare to sing my final song.

Standing up here in front of thousands of fans is second nature. I performed in countless dive bars before breaking onto the scene and securing my first record deal, then moving on to sold-out world tours. Which means I shouldn’t have sweaty palms like a preteen working up the nerve to talk to her crush.

My heart shouldn’t be racing like a horse competing in the Kentucky Derby.

My stomach shouldn’t churn as though I’ve eaten ceviche from a questionable food truck.

Tremors shouldn’t affect my hands like a virgin embarking on their deflowering.

None of this should be afflicting me. But it is.

Because of him.

Because of the current state of my heart.

But this is how I deal with heartache. With tragedy. With…life.

“This is a little different, and I hope you like it,” I rasp into the mic. Noise from the cheering fans is deafening, and like every time I perform, the surreal quality never quite fades.

Tonight marks the first time I’ll share a song I wrote about someone who eviscerated my heart entirely. My other relationships—and subsequent failures—pale in comparison.

It’s no secret that love and broken hearts inspire great songwriting. With regard to the latter, it’s never hard to find someone mourning an unrequited love, suffering heartache, or wishing they’d find their own glorified everlasting love.

But have you noticed when male musicians write about it, they’re never on the receiving end of the snide, sarcastic comments of, “Oh, poor thing. He’s rich and famous and can’t find love. Boo-freaking-hoo.”?

Yet when I write lyrics that are the closest thing to ripping out my heart and putting it on display for the world, I receive the “She’s probably selfish and put her career first” or “She probably cheated, and now she’s regretting it” or “Mm. So sad. The Ice Princess of Pop is heartbroken.”

My response? Fuck that noise. I’m writing from my heart and soul, regardless of how damaged they might be at any given time. And as long as my fans continue to support me, I’m going to keep on keepin’ on.

“I’d like to dedicate this song to a special person.” I duck my chin, willing myself to maintain composure. “It’s called ‘Embers.’”

Once I strum the first note on my guitar, everything around me fades. My voice emerges from the shards scattered within my chest where my working heart once was.

When I play that final chord, I see tears streaming down the faces of the fans in the front rows. And yet again, I’m reminded of something all too easily forgotten. That there are others who can relate to lyrics written from my soul’s breath.

Because in heartache, we’re never truly alone.

THE ITALIAN by TL Swan is LIVE!

Today we are so excited to be sharing the release of T L Swan’s brand new contemporary romance, THE ITALIAN


They say there are three things you should do at least once in your life:

Dance like nobody’s watching.
Travel the world.
And fall hopelessly in love.

I aimed to do all three.

I went to Italy to find myself.
But he found me.

It was like a story book, our eyes met across a crowded room.
He asked me if I needed help reading the menu.
We ate, we laughed, we danced, and I fell.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go to plan, and we parted ways.

Two years later, our eyes meet across a room again.
Only this time I was on a date with another man.
He went crazy in a jealous fit.

But the man I met then is different now.
He’s colder, harder, and officially one of the most powerful men in Italy.
Dare I say it, even more enticing.

But if you dance with the devil, you get burnt.

And the fires in Italy are scalding hot.

THE ITALIAN is live and available in Kindle Unlimited

COVER REVEAL ~ NO SAINT by Jo Raven

Today we are delighted to be sharing the cover for New York Times bestselling author Jo Raven’s all-new contemporary romance,
NO SAINT, releasing 26th November

Cover Designed by Letitia Hasser at RBA Designs


Why are bad boys so good?

Meet the infamous Ross, black sheep of the family and bully extraordinaire.
I drink too much, smoke too much, screw around. I’ve hurt people, been in and out of prison. I’m a bastard, a beast.
I’m a goddamn bundle of joy.
I mean, my own dad tried to kill me, what does that tell you?
Then again, my dad did kill my mom, so maybe it isn’t just me. Who the hell knows.
The world sucks and I’m giving it the finger in every damn way, except…
Except there’s a girl. Pretty. Hot. Clever. She didn’t get the memo – that she should hate me, shun me, kick me when I’m down. That the world screwed us all over. She believes in the future – and sometimes she seems to even believe in me.
Big mistake. I’m bad news. I made her suffer in the past, and nothing has changed. I’m not an angel, not a saint. No good.
But for some reason I don’t get, I can’t let her go down with me. I find myself trying to be better for her, pretending to be someone I’m not.
And if that doesn’t ring some damn big alarm bells regarding my sanity, well… then I’m done already.

* This is the story of Ross, half-brother to Octavia, Gigi and Merc, set in the Wild Men series coming soon*

Real life outside school is different. It has to be. I have to believe it. Luna the frightened unpopular girl is gone, too. Now I am the new Luna, and like the new moon I am in darkness until I reveal myself, reborn.

Hey, it sounds good in theory, all right? It gives me a plan, a purpose. I can do this. Be the new me who isn’t so shy and insecure, who doesn’t go red when someone laughs or points at her. I am good enough. I need to believe it.

Who cares if I’m not all that pretty? I’ve brains, and smarts, and I will make something of my life.

Once I get through this Summer, that is. And save some money. And decide what I do next.

My cousin says I should get a degree, maybe in web design and graphics. Move to a city, get a good job in a company. That I can do it.

My thoughts return to Ross and what my dad and Josh said about him.

That he’s still here. Hanging around. That his dad attacked him.

That’s so screwed up.

Worse still, why can’t I get him out of my mind? It’s hard to stop thinking about him. Not only because he taunted me and tormented me—but also because he was the sexiest, hottest guy in school.

And the world, probably.

What a pity he’s such an asshole.

HOLD ON TO HOPE

Evan Bryant wasn’t your typical hero.
But he was mine.
Broken by the worlds’ standards, he was still the strongest boy I would ever know.
My best friend. The boy I’d given everything to. My heart, my body, and the promise of forever.
The day I’d needed him most, he walked away.
He left me shattered and questioning the love I’d thought we’d shared.

Three years later, I wasn’t prepared for him to return to Gingham Lakes.
It wouldn’t have mattered if he wasn’t the most beautiful man I’d ever seen.
My fingers still would have ached to caress his skin.
My body still would have begged to get lost in his touch.
And my heart . . . it would have always sung his name.
But time changes things. With it, secrets that could ruin everything.
Can we find a way to love again, or have the fears of our past stolen the hope of our forever . . .

Just when I thought Gingham Lakes couldn’t break me anymore, along came the biggest emotional tornado of them all. Enter Frankie Leigh and Evan. Oh my golly Miss Molly, what has this wonderful author done to me with this one. The last we saw these two they still weren’t talking like grown-ups.

This story was one heartache after another. How could two people handle the burden and strain of so much agony? Two people so close they didn’t know where they began or ended.

So much has happened. So much endurance and tears. From best friends to more with some of the best flashbacks I’ve ever read. This story had it all. You can always return home but that doesn’t mean it’s easy or emotionless.

Frankie Leigh and Evan stole my heart from the very beginning. The wild child and her heartbroken friend. They placed so many hardships in the way. Made so many mistakes. So realistic yet so very…magical.

I’ve always loved this series and Gingham Lakes. Where the men are tough but gentle. Manly yet emotional. This author does it all so flipping well. Thank you for bringing their story to life. For giving us addicted readers more of Evan, his mum and Kale. Hold on to Hope almost brought me to my knees.

REVIEW ~ CHECKED by Jacob Chance

Today we are thrilled to be sharing KFF’s review of CHECKED, the first sports romance stand-alone in the Boston Terrier Hockey Series
by Jacob Chance


They call him ‘Wilde Man’. Rumor has it he’s an animal on the ice and between the sheets.

Like the rest of the female population, I’ve been crushing on Clancy Wilde, the captain of Boston University’s hockey team, since the first time I saw him. Big, blond, and charming, he ticks all the boxes.

When we find ourselves at a wedding, drunk and flirting, I know I can finally check this tattooed, bad boy, hockey player off my wish list.

One night is all it was meant to be, until I see two pink lines on the pregnancy test.

How did the notch on my belt turn into a ball and chain?

Clancy Wilde is the captain of Boston University’s hockey team and there’s a rumour he’s known as “Wilde Man” as he’s an animal on the ice and between the sheets! Tenley Davenport has had a huge crush on him from the moment she saw him. They both attend a wedding where the alcohol flows and flirting takes place. She finally gets her wish; however, it has its repercussions.

It makes for interesting reading when their future life plans are thrown off course. Both live in completely different states and somehow have to deal with the unplanned surprise. Clancy is an up and coming hockey player and he loves his sport so much. Tenley is studying education so she can become a teacher. The two college students thought they were having one night of passion, not a lifetime commitment.

This is a well-written story about a swoon-worthy hero and a gutsy well-put-together heroine. I found them both intriguing and somewhat perplexing as I wanted to know how they were going to work out the set of circumstances they found themselves in. They’re crossover characters from previous workings of the author and I was excited to learn more about them. Clancy has this exterior of a cheeky up and coming sports star who just wants to play around. But deep down, he is sweet, caring, loyal and protective. The maturity they both showed towards their situation was well-executed throughout the book. There are plenty of obstacles for the protagonists and there are appearances from some of my favourite characters.

Mr Chance has delved into a subgenre that was out of his comfort zone. If you’ve read the blurb, you’ll know what I mean but I do recommend going into the book blind! The writing’s fluidity kept me invested and hanging onto every word and although I’m not into the sports genre, his impeccable penmanship captivated me. I really enjoyed the fun, angsty Boston Terriers series with its lovable characters. There’s always a bit of steam but that never overshadows the story. A very well-deserved 5-stars and I am looking forward to the next book in this hockey series.

Perry has veered away from contemporary romance and given us the first book in her all-new suspense duet, Tin Gypsy. I certainly wanted to know what the real reason behind the head of the motorcycle club shutting down such a lucrative albeit illegal business years back was. Saying that, I found the story a tad slow to begin with and that gritty bite I look for in this kind of read felt absent. Nonetheless, I gave the story a chance and it paid off.

An unknown enemy goes out of their way to make it look like an ex-member of the club committed a crime and Bryce, the new small town’s ambitious journalist wants to get to the bottom of it. I love a spine-tingling thriller with a good dash of romance, so when the intrigue and steaminess picked up, I was in my element. There’s plenty of twists and turns and untold truths to keep the reader aroused, too. Especially the outcome of a past happening which won’t go down at all well with Dash, surprises the socks off his father and complicates matters no end.

It took me a while to connect to Bryce. She gave me the impression that reporting the scoop for her dad’s newspaper and making a name for herself was more important than people’s feelings. Her not being intimidated by Dash’s threats earned my respect though and later on, them coming to an agreement of sorts seemed to me to be the most sensible they could have done. Had to smile. Neither of them is quite sure how to handle their instant attraction. In fact, he quite likes the fact that this spunky woman stands up for herself.

For me, Dash was lacking what Bryce had. In its day, the club was well-known for its shady goings-on, the members to be reckoned with. I think age had mellowed then somewhat and it’s clear to see their all happy in the workshop renovating Harleys. Their bad biker image does kick in when things heat up and Dash responded exactly how I’d hoped he would.

The back and forth of Dash and Bryce’s sexual innuendos and banter added a playful touch and was really well conveyed. I liked that they were on the same page and even though a couple of big-little bombshells were dropped, there are still a lot of unanswered questions waiting to be answered. Parts of the story I found a little drawn out, but that didn’t stop me enjoying Gypsy King and looking forward to the conclusion in Raven Knight coming soon.
