REVIEW TOUR ~ TRYING TO SCORE by Kendall Ryan

Today we are thrilled to be sharing  Tracey Lou’s review of New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan’s all-new second chance stand-alone novel in the Hot Jocks series, TRYING TO SCORE


Teddy King excels at many things. Playing hockey. Check. Scoring on and off the ice. Check. Being stupidly attractive … Double check.

Despite his demanding schedule, he still finds time to annoy me. I knew him way back when. Before he was the guy everyone wanted a piece of, he was just a rebellious college co-ed and one of my more energetic study partners.

But secrets have a way of getting out, and a steamy encounter from our college days (that we probably shouldn’t have filmed) is about to cause a major scandal. Unless we can work together to stop it.

Teddy’s no stranger to hard work … but the thing he wants most?

Is me.

Note: This high-heat standalone is chock-full of scorching banter and steamy good times. He’s a testosterone-dripping hockey player who wants a second chance. She’s a tough as nails attorney intent on making partner. Frienemies to lovers. No cliffhanger. Enjoy!

Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all-new stand-alone novel. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series is perfect for you!

Hot Jocks #3 introduces us to another player from the Hawks. It’s like the trials and tribulations of this ice hockey team.

The characters are so easy going, that you will be enthralled by Teddy King or TK as I was. He’s ripped, handsome and too gorgeous for his own good. He loves the ladies and the ladies love him. Being a professional ice hockey player came with its perks.

Sara was a friend of TKs from college. Beautiful and sassy, she’s now a lawyer, her days hectic and never-ending. I’d say friends, but it was more friends with benefits if you catch my drift *wink* And the benefit was about to catapult them both into a situation that neither of them saw coming.

Unbeknownst to Sara, a certain person (TK) kept a copy of a sex tape that had been made back in college. Well, you can guess what’s coming next! Or maybe not, lol. So some bright spark came up with a plan. A PR plan. Will it work?

Sara’s afraid if this got out, it could ruin her career in law. And TK’s worried that he could lose his place on the team. So this plan has to work. I’m not telling you what it is though! Spending time together brought forth all the feelings they’d thought were long forgotten. TK always wanted more from Sara, but he just never found the right moment to tell her.

The physical attraction between this couple was scorching. Will they give in to temptation or will they just carry on being friends with a plan? I highly recommend this next instalment. It’s very well-written and the story flowed like a dream.

REVIEW ~ THE ITALIAN by T L Swan

Now a #1 Amazon bestseller in Billionaire Romance, we are delighted to be sharing Tracey Lou’s review of  THE ITALIAN,
a contemporary romance by T L Swan


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 available in Kindle Unlimited

Just wow! Where do I start with this book? I know, let’s start with the cover. Bellissimo!! (I bet you didn’t know I could speak Italian) I can’t, haha. But he just takes my breath away and I couldn’t wait to delve into this book.

Enrico Ferrara. The Italian. Tall, dark, mysterious and drop-dead, panty-melting gorgeous. Be still my heart.

Olivia Reynolds had left Australia for a trip overseas. Craving excitement, she came to Italy. Little did she know that meeting the gorgeous Enrico would change her life forever. The physical attraction was instant. This Italian hunk with the gorgeous smile and an accent to die for left her craving his presence constantly. The perfect excuse for her to play the tourist and be her tour guide. Zipping around on the back of his bike made her realise she wanted more. A simply holiday affair? Or something more?

Flying off for a few days to meet up with her friend Natalie, Olivia promises to return to Enrico before she finally heads home back to Australia. Unbeknownst to Olivia, as she boards her flight, Enrico receives a telephone call that will change the path of his life forever. Secrets come to light and the horrors of life come forward. This is not the end of their love story. It’s just the beginning!

Time has passed, eighteen months to be exact and yet again Olivia finds herself on a plane bound for Italy. This time to embark on a new life and start her dream job. Coincidence? I think not! Italy is a big country, but wouldn’t you know it. Olivia and Enrico cross paths again. Only this time Enrico is different. There was a hardness about him and a look in his eyes that wasn’t there before.

Enrico had ever forgotten Olivia. She was constantly in his mind and if he was being completely honest with himself, she was constantly in his heart. Only this time Enrico was torn between his love for Olivia, his family and wary of his enemies that were always present.

There is so much more to Olivia’s and Enrico’s story, but I can’t give it all away in this review. So what I’ve done is just lay down the foundation for you because this is a story you do not want to miss. We’ve got love, passion, betrayal and suspense. What more could you ask for?

I’m so in love with this author. There’s not one book of hers that I haven’t liked. She delivers everything I want and need in a book without me even having to tell her! She keeps me enthralled with every page that I turn. This is not a straight forward love story and it’s certainly not boring! Obviously, this book is set in Italy. And with hand on heart, I can honestly say my understanding of the Italian language is a big zero. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t try and read the parts of the book that was written in this language. I have it on good authority (by my Italian colleague) that my accent is appalling! So thank you to the author for including the translations.

On that note, congratulations T.L. Swan on another masterpiece. I look forward to the next one!

RELEASE BOOST ~ COLLATERAL DAMAGE by Natasha Knight

Today we are delighted to be on tour with COLLATERAL DAMAGE: an Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance Duet by USA Today bestselling author Natasha Knight


DAMAGE: Collateral Damage Duet #2

We’re a match made in hell, Stefan and I.

He took me to exact his revenge. I went from being a pawn to my father to being a pawn to Stefan. The only difference is I have a ring the size of a boulder on my finger and a husband I don’t want.

And the hardest part is I thought he was different. I thought I was falling in love.

I guess my father was right. I’m not a very smart girl.

Stefan is a powerful man. He doesn’t play nice, not if you’re his enemy. But I’ve learned one thing about my husband.

He takes care of what’s his.

And I am his.

His enemies have become my enemies, but he’ll never let anyone hurt me. He’s fiercely protective. It’s the predator inside that scares me.

This is the continuation of Gabriela and Stefan’s story and starts where Collateral ended.

Stefan is still domineering, commands attention and sexy as hell. Gabriela is still determined and defiant. Wow, what an impact that the first chapter was. Again I’m hooked on this marvellous story by Natasha Knight.

Gabriela plans to escape, take an unexpected turn. Awash with fear and in pain, she finds herself in darkness, scared at what is to become of her. Stefan is out of his mind. Someone has taken what is his and they will not be getting away with it. The rage inside him is burning fierce. The hatred he feels for her and her father is slowly changing. He still hates her father, but the feelings he has for Gabriela are leaving him confused.

Scared is not the word, Gabriela is petrified. She’s going to die. How will she survive this? Is this Stefan’s doing or her father’s? So many questions and no answers. Stefan is powerful and the head of the family. He has many enemies and any one of them could be behind this.

The dynamics between this couple was explosive. They fed off each other. She gave as good as she got and he gave it right back. Neither one was backing down and this is what made this book an exciting read.

This book packed a punch. It’s the perfect conclusion to this enemies-to-lovers dark intense Mafia story, but will your questions eventually be answered? And the twist comes as a surprise, or does it? I always knew there was something shady with about character. Have I piqued your interest yet?

I’m not giving too much away because I want you to read it. You need to read it! The author included so much in this story of love, suspense and betrayal. It’s well written and the story flowed throughout.

It will be interesting to see if any other characters from this book get their own story. Congratulations to the author. You’ve become one of my favs. Five well-deserved stars.

It’s midnight when we’re back at the house and I carry her to my room. She doesn’t resist when I strip off her clothes, her underthings still damp, and put her in the shower under a flow of hot water. I strip too and step in beside her and there’s no resistance when I kiss her. When I take her in my arms and kiss her as the water washes sea salt from us.She opens to me and I cup the back of her head. I don’t ever want to stop kissing her. Don’t ever want to stop holding her like this.When the water begins to cool, I switch off the shower and dry her then myself before lifting her up and carrying her to my bed. I lay her down and lie down beside her, shifting so I’m on top of her but keeping most of my weight on my forearms so I don’t crush her.I slide one hand down and cup the mound of her breast. I run my fingernail over her nipple, and she moans into my mouth. When I pull away, it’s to look at her.She licks her lips, reaches up to touch my cheek, slides her hand down to my chest and sets it against my heart.We don’t talk. We don’t say a single word. Not for a long while. We just kiss and kiss and look at each other. And I can’t get enough of touching her. Tasting her. Can’t get close enough to her.“Christ, Gabriela,” I start. “I want you.” I roll off her and onto my side to slide my hand down over her belly.

She cups my cheek, touches her mouth to mine. “Kiss me again.”

I do.

Gabriela

Stefan Sabbioni showed up uninvited in my bedroom on my sixteenth birthday. He stood in the shadows smelling of whiskey and death and wrapped a broken, blood-crusted necklace around my neck. I thought he’d strangle me with it.

That night, he left a message for my father. He said he’d be back to take something precious.

I never delivered that message, though. I wonder if things would be different if I had because now, two years later, he’s back. And he’s not hiding in any shadows.

He’s come to make good on his promise.

He’s back to take that something precious.

Me.

Stefan

Marchese is the manipulator of my family’s tragedy. I won’t just bring him to his knees. I’ll bury him for what he did.

Taking his daughter is only the beginning. I’ll do it knowing I’m starting a war. I’ll do it knowing my enemies will become his allies. They’ll stop at nothing to destroy me and he’ll stop at nothing to get her back.

I’ve never shied away from war, though. I’m not one to play nice and I don’t share my toys. I’ll demolish you if you touch what’s mine.

And she is most definitely mine.

THE STOPOVER by T L Swan is LIVE!

Today we are delighted to be sharing T L Swan’s all-new contemporary romance, THE STOPOVER

A memorable night of passion refuses to stay just a memory in this sizzling and scandalous romance from bestselling author T L Swan.


 

I was upgraded to first class on a flight from London to New York.

The food, champagne, and service were impeccable.

The blue-eyed man sitting next to me, even better.

He was suave and intelligent.

We talked and laughed, and something clicked.

Fate took over and the plane was grounded, and we had an unexpected stopover for the night.

With no plans, we made our own.

We danced and laughed our way around Boston and had a night of crazy passion that no woman would ever forget.

That was twelve months ago, and I haven’t heard from him—until today.

I started a new job and met the CEO. You can imagine my surprise to see those naughty blue eyes dance with delight when he saw me across the mahogany desk.

But I’m not that carefree girl anymore. My life has changed, I have responsibilities.

I just got an email.

He wants to see me in his office for a private meeting at 8:00 a.m.

Naughty blue eyes have no place in the workplace.

What kind of private meeting does he have in mind?

Ooh, my days! I’m speechless. What else can I say except I’m totally in love with this author!

Having read her books before and totally fallen for her characters, I knew this book would be no different. I’ll be totally honest with you, I picked up this book and couldn’t put it down. You know, one of those books you just never want to end.

Emily Foster was on a flight to New York City and when you unexpectedly get bumped up to first-class you don’t expect to be sitting next to the most handsome and irritating man you have ever met. Even I’m never that lucky…haha! This was going to be interesting ride.

Jay, Jim Jameson Miles was the CEO of a billion-dollar media empire. He was handsome, charismatic and commanded attention wherever he went. Sitting next to a beautiful woman on the flight home was the icing on the cake.

The conversation between them was light, flirty and humorous. Even I had to smile at the dialogue between these two characters. Due to extreme weather conditions, their plane was diverted to Boston where the flirty took on a whole new meaning. One night. It was supposed to be just one night of fun, lust and passion, and one night was all it was.

Twelve months later and Emily has a new job… Guess where? And guess who is her new boss? Yup, you’ve guessed right. It’s Jameson Miles of Miles Media. I may have forgotten to mention that during the stopover they were only on a first-name basis.

Twelve months had not extinguished the lust they felt as soon as they clapped eyes on each other again. You could feel the heat steaming straight off the pages. Only now it was going to get complicated, he was her boss. They both agreed to be casual FB and no it doesn’t stand for Facebook!

Would they be able to keep it simple? She’s feisty and he’s stubborn, and that makes for a volatile relationship. That’s if you can call it a relationship. What was supposed to be casual was turning into so much more for both of them.

A major catastrophe at work gave this book an interesting turn, a turn that even I wasn’t expecting. There are misunderstandings, hurt feelings and plenty of tears. Will they be able to salvage what they have or will it be destroyed forever.

Another handsome alpha male brought to you by T.L Swan. Yet again I fell in lust with Jay. I’m going to call him Jay now because I feel like we’re best friends.

This book laid down the foundations for another great series and I for one, cannot wait to catch up with Jameson’s brothers. Oh, did I forget to mention he had brothers? Oops! Congratulations T.L Swan. Five stars are really not enough.

ALL THE WAY by Kendall Ryan is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan’s brand new romantic stand-alone novel in the
Hot Jocks series, ALL THE WAY


I know it’s time to move on from my rocky past and get back out there and start dating again.

It’s just that every time I think about it, I get all nervous and sweaty.

Good thing I have a secret weapon to help me—my best friend, professional hockey stud Owen Parrish.

He’s the king of hookups, and promises he’ll be my guide through the world of online dating. With his help, I know this won’t be as hard.

• • •

I’ve never been this hard in my entire life.

My friend Becca wants my help hooking her up with some douchey guy from a dating app.

I said I’d help her—but now I’m noticing all kinds of things I can’t ignore, like how pretty she is behind those baggy clothes and messy buns.

I want to be the one to help her, to show her the ropes in the bedroom, and it turns out, Becca’s game to let me take a more hands-on approach.

But what happens when she’s ready to take her newfound confidence and move on? I’ve never been boyfriend material, but for her, I want to try.

Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all-new stand-alone novel. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series is for you!

We were first introduced to these two characters in book one of the Hot Jocks series which laid the foundations for this story.

Owen Parrish was the goalie for the ice hockey team The Hawks. He played on and off the ice and made no apologies for it. He was focused on the game and his career yet always found time for the puck bunnies that came with the job.

Becca was friends with Owen’s sister, Elise. Elise was dating Justin who was also a member of the team and Owens roommate. Still with me?

Seeing how happy her friend was, made her realize that there was something missing from her life, intimacy with a partner. She craved it.

Traumatized by an event that happened whilst she was still in college meant that it was something she avoided. Although when she did have a boyfriend, she would get to a certain point in the relationship and freeze. She needed help, and she needed to keep it simple.

After copious amounts of tequila, Becca lost her inhibitions and approached Owen for help and boy, was he in for a surprise!

Owen couldn’t believe it when Becca asked him for help but after seriously thinking about it he said yes. He wanted to help her in any way that he could. But would they be able to keep it simple? And would their friendship withstand the change in dynamics? Only time would tell.

I really enjoyed this story. It handled a sensitive subject that was incorporated into this book with ease and understanding. Who knew that Owen Parrish had a sensitive nature and would take it nice and slow with Becca and more importantly, make her feel comfortable with herself. This was definitely going to be an interesting read.

Another great book from the author Kendall Ryan. I’m beginning to become quite a fan of the Hawks. Haha!

All the Way is well-written and flowed throughout.  It’s one of those books that once you start, you can’t put down. I look forward to the next offering in the series and highly recommend to readers to start reading it now.

What can I say! As soon as I read the blurb I was hooked. Waiting with great anticipation for it to land on my kindle, I couldn’t contain my excitement when it finally arrived. One of my favourite genres.

This story starts by delving into the past to give us a glimpse of what happened and where the story is going to take us and the reasons why. It’s not going to be pretty, but you’re going to love it as much as I.

Stefan Sabbioni. Tall, dark and handsome with a commanding presence. I guess being a member of the Sicilian mob will do that to you. Wealthy and powerful and hell-bent on revenge. The reason? This is the part where I urge you to read the book, so you can find that out for yourself. Sorry lol

Gabriela Marchese. Beautiful, wilful, scared and sometimes terrified, she’s the daughter of a powerful man who practically held her prisoner. Educated at home, she has no friends and lives her life in a gilded cage. Physically and mentally abused by the one person who should have been there to support her, guide her, love and look after her. Her father.

Her mother died in an accident and her brother’s in a care facility. She’s all alone apart from the one friend she has.

When these two characters first met, only one of them knew what’s going to happen. The future is planned, and it isn’t going to be all sunshine and roses. Revenge, not a pretty word. Both come with emotional baggage, something they have in common.

Using Gabriela meant that she left one prison for another. The only difference was geography. Packed off to a palatial property in Palermo Italy, awaiting the arrival of her fiancé soon to be husband, she swapped one monster for another. But is he? Being in close proximity to each other means that they both spend more time in each others company. Are you wondering what is coming next? Where this story is going?

Even I can’t tell you. All I know is I see past the hard and evil facade Stefan presents to the world. Especially when it comes to Gabriela. She may say she hates him, but as a woman, I know different. Haha! Their story continues in the next book by this author which will be coming to you soon. All I will say is… Wow! I for one, cannot wait.

A note for the author. I can honestly say it’s been a while since I’ve read a book that hooked me, reeled me in and held me captivated from start to end and then left me wanting more. Congratulations to you. A well-deserved 5 stars.

“Turn around, Gabriela.”She turns.I look at her, at the exposed expanse of flawless skin. Flawless but for those marks I know are hidden by the silky material of the dress.The straps of the dress are thin, spaghetti straps. The patterned deep blue falls to just above her knees.When I look up, I meet her gaze in the mirror. She’s unblinking. On alert.I’m not an inexperienced man, but there’s something about this petulant, defiant girl, my unwilling bride-to-be because when I shift my gaze down again, down to the naked skin of her back, to the curve of her spine and swell of her hips, my cock stirs.I reach out, touch the silk, push it wider so I see more of her.“What—”“Don’t move.”

I run my knuckles softly over her warm skin, feel the goosebumps rise as I trail my hand down, then up again, fingertips light along each vertebra. When I reach her hair, I lift the mass of it, feel the weight as I set it over her shoulder. It’s not long, it was once, but it’s not anymore. Just a little past her shoulders. But still, to see it like this, the dark, sleek mass soft over one shoulder, her back more fully exposed, it awakens something inside me. A thing that wants to claim. To mark as my own.

I lean down, bring my mouth to the curve of her neck and meet her eyes as I kiss it.

Her breathing is shallow, and she watches me as I run the scruff of my jaw along the line of her shoulder then back. She shudders and I inhale her scent, kiss the curve again, opening my mouth this time to taste her, to bite, just a little. To hear her breath catch as she gasps and to watch her eyes darken as the pupils dilate.

I run my fingers down the length of her arms, lightly circle her wrists because she’s going to fight me in a minute.

“You said something the other night, Gabriela. Something about putting my mark on you.”

I was right. She tries to pull free but I tighten my hold on her.

“Let me go, Stefan.”

“No.”

“Please, just—”

“You were right. Your body is mine. But thing is, I want the rest too. Your mind. Your past. Your secrets. Your soul. I’ll take it all.
 

 


DAMAGE: Collateral Damage Duet #2, releasing 15th October

We’re a match made in hell, Stefan and I.

He took me to exact his revenge. I went from being a pawn to my father to being a pawn to Stefan. The only difference is I have a ring the size of a boulder on my finger and a husband I don’t want.

And the hardest part is I thought he was different. I thought I was falling in love.

I guess my father was right. I’m not a very smart girl.

Stefan is a powerful man. He doesn’t play nice, not if you’re his enemy. But I’ve learned one thing about my husband.

He takes care of what’s his.

And I am his.

His enemies have become my enemies, but he’ll never let anyone hurt me. He’s fiercely protective. It’s the predator inside that scares me.
