About The Hookup Handbook:

My love wand is on a strike. As bad as that blows, pun unintended, it’s ten times worse for me. I’m a male escort, but not just any escort, I’m the escort. The one with a mile-long waiting list and a pristine reputation that’s very well-deserved. Only now, I’m on hiatus. Because after years of pleasing women all over the city, my man missile decides to get finicky. And the only woman he wants? Someone I can never have—my best friend’s younger sister, the nerdy and awkwardly adorable Sienna. She’s working at the agency this summer, keeping me organized, handling paperwork, and most importantly, keeping me on track to finish writing my book about sex and intimacy, which is due to my publisher in thirty days. She thinks I hate her, that I don’t want her here. The truth is much more twisted. I get hard every time she walks into my office. Her wide blue eyes and pouty mouth drive me wild with desire, and if she stays, I’m not sure how much longer I can stay away from her. Little Miss Overachiever says she’s here to help? Fine. I’m going to put her nerdy, curvy tush to work.

Cover Reveal & Pre-Order- Savior by Fiona Cole



Release Date: March 28, 2019
Cover Design: Najla Qambar, Najla Qambar Designs
Model: David Wills
Photographer: Eric D. Battershell

Synopsis: 

He bought me, but not to touch or taste. He bought me to save me, and to atone for past sins.
Handsome and mysterious, he swoops in to offer me a new life, but this is no knight in shining armor. He’s cold, hardened by his past. But there’s an inferno underneath the ice, I can feel the heat each time he looks at me—each time he gives in to the desire between us. No matter how much I push to unleash the fire in his eyes, he shoves back harder each time. He’s merciless with his cruel words, telling me how naïve I am, how little I know of the world. But I’m stronger than he thinks. When we face down our demons from the past, I’ll prove which one of us was in need of saving, and which one of us is the savior.

 Excerpt:
 
“Can I ask you a question?”
Her head tipped back on the couch and turned to look at me with one brow arched. “You can. I may not answer though,” she repeated my same words back to me.
“How are you nineteen and still a virgin?”
“It’s not like I’m forty,” she scoffed.
“I know, but it’s uncommon in this day and age.”
“I don’t know. There wasn’t anyone really great around where I was. No one that I felt safe enough with to even consider feeling attraction.” She shrugged before shifting to face me. “Plus my sister didn’t make it seem all that appealing.”
“You ever have a boyfriend?”
Nope.
“Kissed?” The question slipped out, lower and more intimate than I’d planned.
A slow smile curled her lips. “Well, yeah. I kissed you.”
“Was I your only kiss?” I asked, shocked.
Her eyes dropped a bit before looking back up, a blush staining her cheeks. “Among other first experiences.”
Her soft moans as her hips moved faster over my lap flashed in my mind, instantly bringing my dick to life.
“Actually,” she began, “I don’t think you get credit for my first orgasm. I kind of did that myself against you and I could have accomplished the same thing against a pillow. So maybe you’re not that great.”
No inner voice giving me warnings about giving her space and to keep this neutral could stop my male pride from rearing its head. I narrowed my eyes and shifted to face her, leaning an arm on the back of the couch to crowd her. “Not that great?” I growled.
The smile she’d been trying to hold back broke free even as the slight blush became a rosy red that spread down her neck. “Nah. I’m still waiting for someone to give me my first real orgasm.”
A roaring sound filled my ears, like a wave washing away all common sense. In its place was me beating my chest demanding she acknowledge that she came against my crotch because I made her. I leaned in closer. “I gave you your first orgasm.”
She shrugged casually, but I saw the pulse thudding against her neck. I watched the way her tongue slicked out to coat her lips. “Sorry to crush your spirits, but I did all the work. You just sat there. Kind of like a pillow would.”
“I was.”
Weren’t.”
Was.
Weren’t.”
Was,” I growled, reaching the end of my patience.
She giggled. “Were—”
My lips crashed down on hers, stopping the childish argument. A small part of me knew how fucking stupid this all was. I’d pushed her away, made decisions, gone on dates I didn’t want to, all to make sure she stayed away. And here we were, kissing because I had to make a point that I was some caveman.
I was an idiot.

Book Review- Hometown Troublemaker (Havenbrook #2) by Brighton Walsh

Blurb:
Aurora "Rory" Haven's life is in shambles. Her ex-husband's living with the woman he cheated with, her oldest daughter blames her for the divorce, and she's broke. To make ends meet, she partners with the too-young, way too hot local contractor she has absolutely no business fantasizing about.
Nash King is working overtime so he can take over the family business. He doesn't need the distraction of his best friend's sister, but the hot-as-hell, pearl-clutching divorcée barrels her way into his everyday life. He's managed to ignore his attraction to her for a decade. What's another couple months?
The summer heat and forced proximity has tempers flaring…and their chemistry sizzling. But Havenbrook's gossip mill is churning full-force, and the last thing Rory needs is everyone finding out she's crushing on a man eight years her junior. Except crushing doesn't have anything on what's really going on...

What would happen if the townspeople found out paint wasn't the only thing being stripped?

My Review
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Rory Haven is facing life in Havenbrook as newly divorced. Raising her two daughters, and trying to make a new life for herself and her girls, all on her own. Her time is spent fixing up her home. Working for her daddy at town hall, at a job she hates. And splitting her time with her girls, with her cheating ex. Rory doesn't have the time or energy for the whispers and gossip, that passes through the lips of everyone in her small town. 

And she definitely doesn't have time for the irritating and sexy Nash King. With his muscles, sweetness, and dirty mouth. Nash King is the last thing Rory can think about. But think about him she does. With them working together, everyday gets harder to stay away from this man. A man who awakens parts of Rory she never knew existed. Who encourages her, and cheers her on, and helps her discover just how strong and amazing she is.  

Since he was a teenager, Nash King has worked toward one goal. To buy King Construction from his father. Working with his hands, building things,  turning something ugly and run down into something beautiful is his passion. His dream is right in front of him and he wont let anything get in the way. He can't risk it. 

But Nash finds his attention slowly starting to drift to more than just work. Rory Haven is a women he has always wanted from a far. She's older, his best friends older sister. She was married, with kids. But now, the more time they spend together the more Nash craves to show Rory how amazing she is. Nash knows how he feels and what he wants, and he wont let his best friend, the town or their age difference stand in his way. 

Rory and Nash are AMAZING! I am in love with these two. Brighton Walsh writes some of the best small town romance. Hometown Troublemaker has become a favorite, and I already want to jump right back in and read it all over again. It was beautiful, sweet, so damn sexy and filled with such great characters. 

Nash is a dream. So swoon-worthy. A charming, tattooed, hard working, sweetheart. A dirty talker, take charge, protective man. I'm IN LOVE. Rory was a favorite. She was so strong, I loved how she really found herself in this book, she grew and fought and became the best version of herself. She was so sweet, and sassy and I loved seeing this side of her. Together these two were explosive, passionate and I never wanted to stop reading their story! I can't wait to read more by this author, and I hope for more stories set in Havenbrook!

About The Author:

Brighton Walsh spent nearly a decade as a professional photographer before taking her storytelling in a different direction and reconnecting with her first love—writing. When she’s not lost in her own made up worlds, she’s probably either reading or shopping—maybe even both at once. She lives in the Midwest with her real life hero of a husband, her two kids—one taller than her, one not quite yet—and her dog who thinks she’s a queen. Her boy-filled house is the setting for dirty socks galore, frequent dance parties (okay, so it’s mostly her, by herself, while her children look on in horror), and more laughter than she thought possible.

New Release & Book Review- Heat Stroke (Beach Kingdom #2) by Tessa Bailey


Blurb:

Marcus “Diesel” O’Shaughnessy is a brash, oversized CrossFit enthusiast with a naked lady tattooed on his rippling forearm. Jamie Prince is a private school teacher with an extremely low tolerance for bullshit. The two men have zero in common. Well, except for three things. 



They’re both moonlighting as lifeguards for the summer. 

No matter how hard they try, they cannot stay away from each other. 
And both of them have secrets they’re determined to keep. 

But what happens in the shadows of the Long Beach boardwalk can only remain hidden for so long, before the July sunshine reveals the hot, unrelenting connection they never expected, forcing Marcus and Jamie to decide if they’re simply caught up in a temporary heat stroke or if they’ve found something worth rescuing...





My Review
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Jamie Prince and Marcus O’Shaughnessy are EVERYTHING! I am so in LOVE with them. The connection these two share is out of this world and will make you swoon HARD.

Jamie and Marcus have a strange friendship, a bond neither one understands. They don't seem to get along most of the time, but don't like to be apart. Jamie is reluctant to let Marcus in, past experiences keep Jamie from letting Marcus get too close. Jamie is sure in who he is, what he wants. He wont hide who he is or who he loves. Marcus is still trying to wrap his head around what her wants, who he is. And he has to decide if he is ready to admit to himself if the way he feels for Jamie is more than friendship.

Jamie and Marcus know how they feel for one another, but there is so much surrounding them, that a relationship seems impossible. Jamie will have to decide is he if willing to wait for Marcus, while he sorts out all these news feeling and facts about himself and his life. And Marcus will have to make a decision, to let everyone around, know the real him, or risk losing the man he loves.

Heat Stroke is a must read book. Jamie and Marcus are such great characters to get lost in. I never wanted their story to end. The ups and downs they face, the struggles and all the emotions these two men go through, left me flipping through the pages as fast as I could. Tessa Bailey brings their emotions to life so well, you feel everything they do. I rooted for these two from the beginning, and I loved reading the journey they went on. Marcus and Jamie have stolen my heart.

Heat Stroke was full of family, laughs, great banter, angst and SO much HEAT! These two men are so damn passionate, every encounter they shared was sexy. I could not get enough. The Beach Kingdom series is so much fun to dive into, these Prince brothers are so great, and I am oh so ready for even more. Tessa Bailey has quickly become a favorite author of mine and I will read any and every thing she writes.

Genre: Romantic Comedy/Adult Contemporary
Release Date: March 12, 2019

Blurb:

There’s a fine line between lust and hate.

I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem.

His mouth is.

And the stupid things that come out of it.

But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me… 

Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on.

And it doesn’t involve talking.

I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend can’t change us that much, can it?

Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.

Except he left me a little keepsake.

And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most notorious player.

Leslie McAdam

Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves - even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it's Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She's unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement.

Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she's not in the writing cave you'll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
