THIS IS FOREVER by Natasha Madison is LIVE!

Today we are delighted to be sharing USA Today bestselling author Natasha Madison’s fourth book in the This Is Series, THIS IS FOREVER


Caroline
Becoming a teen mom at eighteen was not what I expected, but then again, neither was being a single parent. Still, I wouldn’t change my past because that boy is my world.

Hockey is the only thing my son seems to care about, so I work two jobs to make sure he can play. I’d do anything to make sure he doesn’t suffer because of the bad decisions his father made.

When he won a whole summer of hockey training, I knew in my heart he was going to have an amazing time.

What I wasn’t prepared for was meeting his new summer coach.

He was magnetic, powerful, and a player—in all forms of the word.

If my life had taught me anything up to this point, it was how to avoid making bad decisions, and Justin Stone was the definition of a bad decision.

I could never be a woman his family approved of. Even if I wished I could be.

Justin
Growing up as the son of a hockey God is one thing. Growing up as the brother of a second hockey God is another. I had big skates to fill, so it was a good thing I loved every second of it.

Summer was my off time, my time to let loose, but when they ask me to coach a hockey camp for underprivileged kids, I couldn’t say no.

But when she walked in holding a little boy’s hand, my heart stopped beating. Or maybe it started for the first time.

They were a package deal, and I knew this—wanted it more than I’ve ever wanted anything. It didn’t take long to realize that no matter what happened,

I would do anything to protect them.

She is the only one I want to be with.

When push comes to shove, I have to prove to everyone that this is my choice, and This is Forever.

Zara Stone

All my life, I’ve said I will never date a hockey player. I know better because I’ve seen and lived it all. My father is a hockey god, my brother is the captain of the most successful NHL team in the world, and my brother-in-law also plays in the league. Their lives are complicated, so I went in the opposite direction.
I fell in love with a scholar. But instead of proposing marriage, he broke up with me.
Three months later, I saw his engagement picture on Instagram. I couldn’t let him get away with that. No, it didn’t matter what, I was going to make that man see that I did not need him.

Evan Richards
I was in the running to pass my point record from last year, ready to claim the number one spot in the league. On top of my game, I was riding my career high wave.
Then, Hockey’s Princess, Zara Stone tweeted me. She wanted me to crash her ex’s wedding.
The worst that could happen? A PR nightmare. The best? A fun night with a beautiful woman.
It started out as a game—something I’m good at. Her crazy idea twisted into something I wasn’t looking for, something neither of us wanted.

When push comes to shove, one thing runs through my mind:
This is Crazy. Also, this is crazy right.

Come Back for Me, an all-new emotional and riveting standalone from New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels, is LIVE!

One night, eight years ago, she gave me peace.

No names.

No promises.

Just two broken people, desperate to quiet their pain and grief.

In the morning, she was gone and had taken my solace with her. I left for the military that day, vowing never to return to Pennsylvania.

When my father dies, I’m forced to go home to bury him. At least I’ll finally be rid of his farm, which is grown over and tangled with memories I’ve fought to forget.

And that’s when I find her. She’s even more beautiful than I remember and has the most adorable kid I’ve ever seen.

Years have passed, but my feelings are the same, and this time I refuse to let her go. They say you can’t bury the past, and they’re right. Because when long-ago secrets are exposed, rocking us both to the core, I have no choice but to watch her walk away again . . .

The first of a new series by this author featuring the Arrowood brothers, this is Connor’s story. A contemporary second chance romance, this book looks like the start of a very promising series; it can be read as a stand-alone and doesn’t end in a cliff-hanger.

Connor is the youngest of the Arrowood brothers. A Navy seal who just finished his last deployment, he vowed never to return to his hometown. He and his brothers Declan, Jacob and Sean were victims of domestic abuse and survived their father’s wrath. Each one of them carved his own path and career. Connor who was forced to return to his hometown has a lot of emotional baggage to deal with and it looks like his life gets more complicated when he meets Ellie. One thing I guarantee, you will fall head over heels in love with this man, a stand-up kind of guy, protective and loyal to his brothers.

“He’s the man to slay dragons and has the fortitude to do it. I don’t fear telling him things. He is the calm in the storm that rages around me.”

Ellie is the brow-beaten wife of Kevin and mother of seven-year-old Hadley. When things at home get worse, she has nowhere to go and no one to turn to until Connor moves in at the farm next door. Could he save her from her husband? Some questions arise and secrets come out when they finally got to know each other.

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from this story but I loved how it developed. Narrated in dual points of view, Ellie’s character as an abused wife will draw out a lot of sympathy from the readers I am sure, but I wished that she developed a backbone sooner rather than later. Her character becoming an independent woman and standing up for herself was a slow process but she gets there in the end. Meanwhile, Connor is your almost perfect hero. He is the one who was strong enough to get out of an abusive home and managed to become a Navy seal who saved lives. His love for Ellie and Hadley outshines his darkest moments.

The antagonist in this book was too conveniently dealt with and I hoped that there was more nail-biting drama, but I guess the domestic violence in Ellie’s home is more than enough for us to cope with. The relationship that develops between Ellie and Connor is the perfect second-chance romance that will truly captivate your heart.

The secondary characters provide an interesting backdrop to Ellie and Connor’s relationship and show how important it is to have the support of family and friends. We are given a glimpse of the other brothers and the build-up to the next book is more obvious at the end when we get to have a quick look at Declan’s story. I am so looking forward to his story and I can hardly wait! I highly recommend this book.

Growing up, Ramsey Stewart branded my soul in ways time could never heal.

At twelve, he asked me to be his girlfriend.

At thirteen, he gave me my first kiss.

By sixteen, we’d fallen in love, planned a future together, and had our eyes set on the horizon.

Love never fails, right?

But for Ramsey, it did.

Love failed him.

I failed him.

The entire world failed him.

At seventeen, Ramsey was convicted of killing the boy who assaulted me.

Move on,he wrote in his first and only letter from prison.

Start a new life, he urged.

I don’t love you anymore, he lied.

There was no such thing as giving up on Ramsey. Love may have been our curse, but he was mine—then, now, and forever.

So here I am, twelve long years later, waiting for a man I don’t even know to emerge from between the chain link gates.

This is the first book by this author that I have read since her On the Ropes series. And oh my word, can I not explain why it took me so long to return. She holds the magic to create a story so tragically bleak, the reader cannot see how the story will turn out happily. Then, out of nowhere, something happens. The sluggish black mash that is on the page morphs into a bright light full of happiness.

Ramsey and Thea have been friends since they were little, outcasts bonded by tragedy and strife.
Release tells the tale from both past and present. Glimpses of who they were as children, teenagers all the way up to the worst night of their young lives.

Thea lives for the moment of getting him back; only when she does, it isn’t quite what she expected. She doesn’t fully comprehend what it was that Ramsey had to give up and do in order to survive his own private version of Hell. The boy he once was has been dead and buried, not laid to rest but buried alive. So many times I felt my heart weep at what I experienced.

For two people who so clearly loved one another, how could they not make it work?
Why were so many obstacles in their way? What was it that kept him hanging on to his temper by the skin of his teeth?

I found that I went into the first part of this book believing one thing and by the end of the second half my belief system had been tipped on its head.

So many things I want to talk about, but I won’t. The description and wording of this book is breathtaking. I hurt, I cried, I screamed and I laughed. What more can a good book do to you?

We finally get the last instalment of Beth and Carter’s epic love story and I was not disappointed, in fact, it went beyond my expectations! And I am definitely sure you will be blown away with the ending. Book two finished with Beth agreeing to marry Duke. And this book starts on the day of Beth’s wedding. The events that followed after changed the course of her life; one can only hope it’s for the better.

Carter all throughout the first quarter of the book wallowed in his pain trying to forget Beth but it drove him deeper into depression. Well, it doesn’t really help when he skulks at the back of the church waiting to see the woman he loves get married to someone else. Although he eventually finds his way back into her arms there are still problems that need to be dealt with.

Written in dual points of view, this book is more about Beth’s emotional maturity. It highlights her character growing a spine and a pair of balls that she ultimately becomes the woman she always wanted to be: free and independent! And what a stunning transformation it is seeing her drive and her passion develops into something that inspires people. Her work reflects her beautiful soul. I love it when the heroine grows into a formidable character without the help of a man; she does it her own way.

“Failure isn’t a terminal condition. If you want something badly enough, you’ll keep going until you have it or until you learn it’s not for you. But if you’re not willing to risk the climb, you can’t complain when you never reach the summit.”

The stumbling block between Carter and Beth’s happy ending gave me heart palpitations and I wondered how the author will address the issue because it was borderline taboo. But fear not, Ms. Allen found a loophole and I was chuffed to bits with how she circumvented the elephant in the room, yay!

The pacing of the story, especially in the last half, is full of suspense that will leave you breathless. So many secrets were uncovered it’s like an archaeologist’s dream and the hodgepodge of antagonists that caused all their problems is dealt with. Beth and Carter’s story is full of heartbreak and hope, of treachery and vengeance, of justice and forgiveness. They have come full circle and it is a strong and binding one.

“The strongest armor any of us have is the love we give ourselves. Nothing can defeat you once you have that in place.”

I am sad that this is the final instalment of the trilogy but also delighted that I get to share their remarkable journey into happy ever after. I highly recommend this book!

CONFESSIONS OF A NAUGHTY NANNY by Piper Rayne is LIVE!

The Baileys are back with Phoenix and Griffin!

Today we are delighted to be sharing Piper Rayne’s 6th book in the stand-alone contemporary romance The Baileys series,
CONFESSIONS OF A NAUGHTY NANNY

When a famous music producer moves to Lake Starlight it can’t just be a coincidence. It’s the universe helping to move things along in the right direction so that Griffin Thorne can discover me.

I have to confess—I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Confession #1: I may have overhead that he was in search of a nanny. What can I say? My brother has a big mouth.

Confession #2: It’s possible I helped along the assumption that I had nanny experience. Hey, babysitting my nieces and nephew counts, right?

Confession #3: There’s a good chance I oversold my qualifications. But my Grandma Dori backed me up, so it’s not completely my fault.

And it worked. He hired me. Only for me to find out that he left the business. 

I guess it’s on to Plan B.

When he accidentally overhears me singing, I expect nothing from him. Then he asks to work with me on a song for our town’s Founder’s Day Parade and it feels like a dream come true. Until…

Confession #4: I’ve fallen for him.

One of the fun things about this series has been the titles. Now this one brings a lot of thoughts to mind. It can come across to begin with as being a fun title. Salacious even. This is a Bailey book and if you’ve read them all we have all come to love the family and the uniqueness.

Phoenix has been front and centre since the first book with Austin and Holly. Back then she was a bratty senior who wanted nothing more than to get out of Lake Starlight and pursue her singing career in LA. We all know that the city of angels has the ability to chew and spit out hundreds of hopefuls every day.

Griffin became one of those side characters I needed to discover how he ticked. The how’s and whys of how he came to be Lake Starlight. His constant battle with the kitchen sink. I had to have answers.

A romance which took a long time to boil over. But when it did, oh boy did it create a mushroom cloud. As is always the way ups and downs happen apace and this couple doesn’t always deal with them in the correct manner. But then in real life who ever really does?

After six books this family have become very dear to me. I feel their pain; I feel their joy. Experiencing the continuing lives of past couples brings the reader much closer to them all. I cannot wait until Kingston gets his story. There are so many unsaid things hiding underneath the calm exterior of this firefighter.

Thank you again, ladies. I cannot wait for the next instalment.

IF I NEVER MET YOU by Mhairi McFarlane is LIVE!

IF I NEVER MET YOU: A deliciously romantic and utterly hilarious romcom by Mhairi McFarlane is now available in Europe!


If faking love is this easy… how do you know when it’s real?

When her partner of over a decade suddenly ends things, Laurie is left reeling—not only because they work at the same law firm and she has to see him every day. Her once perfect life is in shambles and the thought of dating again in the age of Tinder is nothing short of horrifying. When news of her ex’s pregnant girlfriend hits the office grapevine, taking the humiliation lying down is not an option. Then a chance encounter in a broken-down elevator with the office playboy opens up a new possibility.

Jamie Carter doesn’t believe in love, but he needs a respectable, steady girlfriend to impress their bosses. Laurie wants a hot new man to give the rumor mill something else to talk about. It’s the perfect proposition: a fauxmance played out on social media, with strategically staged photographs and a specific end date in mind. With the plan hatched, Laurie and Jamie begin to flaunt their new couple status, to the astonishment—and jealousy—of their friends and colleagues. But there’s a fine line between pretending to be in love and actually falling for your charming, handsome fake boyfriend…

Sometimes a book comes along that you know you are going to love because the author has never let you down! Ms MacFarlane is that author for me. She writes such witty, articulate and fantastic character-driven stories. This book may fall under the genre of “Chick Lit” but it’s so much more than that. I spied this book months ago and loved the synopsis but January seemed such a long way off but fear not, NetGalley came and granted me my Christmas wish! This book is set in Manchester which is not too far away from me so it felt more special knowing the streets and areas mentioned. For me, it brought the book to life. It’s so refreshing to read books not set in London which in my experience are much too frequent.

“What a bleak cow. Last I heard she was hopping on Marcus from KPMG and he has community d**k, so no one’s taking her advice”

“A what?”

“You know, used freely by everyone. Open access. A civic resource.”

The focus of the story centres on Laurie who is a bright, thirty-something career-minded woman who thinks she has got everything she ever dreamed of (or so she thinks) but then the rug is well and truly pulled from under her when her long term boyfriend up sticks and moves out to “find himself”. Laurie is absolutely devastated but fear not Jamie, a fellow lawyer who also happens to be the office Lothario, devises a plan to get them both what they want. Jamie is desperate to climb the corporate ladder but needs Laurie to help convince his employers he’s the responsible type. What could possibly go wrong when all 3 parties work in the same office … Cue the comedy!

“I don’t owe you a snog, Jamie Carter!”

“No, you don’t.”

“But that doesn’t mean I want to kiss you any less.”

What then transpires is full-on belly laughs and giggles which I have come to expect and adore from this author. On paper, these two characters should not even attempt to try and convince people they are now a genuine couple. She is a well-respected lawyer who has a fantastic reputation and he is a lawyer with shall we say, a dubious past. To be fair they have both been utterly honest in what they both want but let’s face it when they both start feeling things they didn’t bank on that’s when the plan goes a tad awry. I have to say this book is so much more than comedy. It’s a touching story too full of beautiful heart-warming moments that you couldn’t help feel the warm and fuzzies.

“If you’re a mistake you’re the greatest one I ever made…”

MacFarlane never falls to write real characters. Her plots are never complex but focus on real stories I’m sure all readers can relate to. Laurie and Jamie were a total delight to read. She didn’t make them perfect or farfetched in how they behaved oh no, these two people could be people we work with. What I loved was how a simple story was written with great attention to detail. I honestly did not want this book to end! From the razor-sharp banter to brilliant characters, I loved it. So often secondary characters are forgotten and fade into the background but in this book, they were given all the attention they deserved. Laurie’s bestie, Emily, had some of the best lines. This girl really did come into her own with such great one-liners; hilarious! Every work colleague, friend and foe were key to the story as much as Laurie and Jamie. If you love romantic comedy with a well-developed plot, take a leap of faith and read the book. You won’t be disappointed!

Second chance romances have and always will be my favourites. There’s no need for getting to know one another, there’s always chemistry from the outset. Always chock full of enough fuel to start a five-alarm fire. I live for the crash and burn of a second chance. I thrive on the insurmountable odds being concurred. The past being burned down around the couple and the phoenix that will soar above, emerging from the ashes of its smouldering carcass.

Nothing could have prepared me for the impact of Rick and Candace. Avoidance and repression had been Rick’s drug of choice. He became a professor in the art of staying the heck away from his past.
That is until he’s forced back to where it all began. Knowing that he has no other choice than to face the only woman who had ever slain the savage beast thriving and devouring his soul.

Candace can handle herself, most assuredly knows her way around a gun, blame that on her upbringing if you will. She can kick butt and take names, she made one hell of an impact on me in the first few pages. She impressed me more than I can articulate. I love a woman who can be tough and then soft. She switches from one to the other like I flick through pages of a book. I could quite easily become her number one cheerleader.

Suspense, action and romance; what more could a gal ask for? As is typical for this author, the story hits the ground running. No build-up, just typical wham bang thank you, ma’am.

Questions, half-truths, and huge abandonment issues are only a few of the issues Candace and Rick have to rebuild from. Candace takes no prisoners, forcing Rick to answer for his past mistakes. He owns them all, open and vulnerable. Body as hard as granite with a heart as soft as cotton wool. She owns him lock, stock and barrel and all she has to do is open her heart and turn the key. Heat and passion surround them. It’s almost as if they’re bathing in the flames of intensity.

But hold the phone; could this book get any better? Oh baby, I’m only teasing. I cannot wait to get the sequel in my greedy little hands. But wait! Be prepared. This five-alarm inferno ends on a cliff hanger. Be prepared to want to throw your Kindle around, instead take a moment and breathe. To do this would mean one sadly upsetting thing. How would you read the sequel?

Thank you, Ms. Jones, for once again reminding me why I relish reading.

“Why are you here alone, Rick Savage?”

He fixes me in a deep blue stare, and I swear I’m drifting in a sea of this man’s making. “To meet you. I just didn’t know it yet.”

The rain explodes around us again, an eternal roughening of the windows that only Texas does with such force. Thunder erupts with it, lightning in the distance, and I don’t know who moves first. Him or me. Suddenly though we’re in the middle of the seat and his fingers are tangling all rough and wonderfully in my hair, his mouth lowering to mine. “I’m going to kiss you now unless you object,” he says.

“Kiss me already, Savage.”

“Rick. Call me Rick.” And then his lips collide with my lips, his tongue a deep stroke of pure heat that has me moaning with the rush of sensation that assaults my body in the best of ways.

My arms slide around his muscular back, body pressing against his body, the hard lines of this incredible man absorbing more than the softer part of me. That need to be touched explodes inside me, demanding satisfaction. He pulls back and stares down at me. “Do you want to get out of here? Together.”

I tell myself this is crazy, insane, wildly out of my character. “I don’t do things like this. Ever.”

He kisses me again and leaves me breathless. “Make me the first.”
