Take a lover…


Lucy Merryweather has inherited a fortune—and her great-aunt’s list of unfulfilled wishes. What better way to honor her memory than by accomplishing as many of them as possible? And with Lucy’s family an ocean away in New York, nothing stands in her way—if one ignores the private investigator hired to spy on her.

Yet Cameron Effington is infuriatingly difficult to ignore…

As a reporter, Cameron is always looking for a good story. An American heiress running rampant between Millworth Manor and Mayfair is the perfect subject. Not to mention captivating. And extremely kissable. And if Lucy believes he’s a detective? Well, the truth should never get in the way of a good story—or hinder delicious, impetuous passion…

About the Book

What’s your lucky number?

Lyla Wilder is done being the shy, chemistry nerd extraordinaire. While every other college student is out having fun, Lyla is studying. With her cat. Well, she’s played it “safe” quite enough, thank you. So she creates a “College Bucket List”―with item #7 being a night of uninhibited, mind-blowing sex…

But she needs some help from her man-whore best friend.


Hockey player Beck Davenport thought Lyla’s transformation would be subtle. Man, was he wrong. With every item she ticks off, Beck finds himself growing seriously hot for his sweet, brainiac best friend. And if he’s not careful, he’ll end up risking their friendship in order to convince Lyla that he might just be her lucky #7…



Lately I have been getting tired of the same old, overly angsty New Adult Romances...so GETTING LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN was just what I needed to get me out of my funk!  With a geek to chic heroine, Lyla and a total book boyfriend in the making, Beck...you will find yourself dazzled by this sweet, emotional New Adult Romance!

Lyla was a heroine who never changed herself for the hero, but for herself and cause she felt like college was passing her by, and she was missing all the fun!  Enter Beck, the hockey playing ladies man who Lyla became close with after being partnered in chemistry.  As Beck agrees to help Lyla check off her College Bucket List...sparks begin to fly!  And I enjoyed every second of it!  

Cindi Madsen writes characters with personality and spark, keeping you turning page after page until...omg...I got to the last page and yes...was left with a huge smile and a HUGE crush on Beck...boy the man can kill it at Karaoke!




Cindi Madsen is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.

REAPER'S FALL
Reaper's MC#5
Joanna Wylde
Releasing November 10th, 2015
Berkley


He never meant to hurt her.

Levi “Painter” Brooks was nothing before he joined the Reapers motorcycle club. The day he patched in, they became his brothers and his life. All they asked in return was a strong arm and unconditional loyalty—a loyalty that’s tested when he’s caught and sentenced to prison for a crime committed on their behalf.

Melanie Tucker may have had a rough start, but along the way she’s learned to fight for her future. She’s escaped from hell and started a new life, yet every night she dreams of a biker whose touch she can’t forget. It all started out so innocently—just a series of letters to a lonely man in prison. Friendly. Harmless. Safe.

Now Painter Brooks is coming home… and Melanie’s about to learn that there’s no room for innocence in the Reapers MC.

SILVER BASTARD
Silver Valley #1
Joanna Wylde
Contemporary MC Romance
Released April 7th, 2015


First in the new Silver Valley series from the New York Timesbestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club Novels 

Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward—full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That’s when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he’d violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.

Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She’s been terrified of him ever since, but she’s even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from... But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She’s living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can't ignore. She has to go back, and there’s only one man she can trust to go with her—the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.

Puck will help her again, but this time it’ll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants...

Ignoring him, I settled back on my stool and surveyed the room. We sat in Becca’s section, and what I saw wasn’t making me happy. I knew she was a good waitress, but she’d just started here and it showed. Not only had she fucked up several orders, she didn’t quite seem to get the rhythm of the bar. That wasn’t my problem, though. My problem was that despite these fuckups, nobody seemed to mind. I had a nasty suspicion this was due to her perky tits, friendly smile, and tight little ass that seriously just needed a bite taken right out of it.
She really, really needed to get a new job—every man in the place wanted her. Including me. Especially me. I hated them. All of them. I shifted uncomfortably, because just like every time I shared a room with her, my pants had gotten tight. Torture. Becca was just so fucking fine on every level, and not just her looks. There was something about the way she carried herself . . . I couldn’t put my finger on it. Like she was dancing through life to some song nobody else could hear. Never met another woman like her—she wasn’t just sexy, she was a survivor and I admired that.
She’d grown up so much since the first time I’d met her. Bigger boobs, a nice fullness to her ass that was nowhere close to fat but would be perfect to hold tight while I fucked her. Her lips had plumped, too, and over the years she’d gained a sparkle in her eyes that turned her from pretty to 100 percent spectacular. Not to mention how she’d tasted. Nearly blew in my pants when I’d taken that mouth. Just the memory got me hard. Make that harder. Fucking basket case. When I’d pulled up to find her sitting outside with Collins, a thousand murder scenarios ran through my mind. And yeah, I know I covered that already, but if anything ever deserved empha- sis, this was it. Collins needed to die. I didn’t care how nice he was.
After that I’d throw Becca on the back of my bike and make a run for the hills . . . Okay, so there were a few problems with the plan, the top one being she hated me. Or she should—I’d certainly given her cause. Boonie nudged me. “Did I mention you’re pathetic? You want her, take her. Other- wise let it go because you’re an embarrassment to all men in general and to the Silver Bastards in particular.”


A little different from the Reapers MC Romances that I have come to love, SILVER BASTARD, as the author mentioned is more about the town as opposed to just the MC life, which I for one thought was awesome!  I enjoyed the interactions with the town's people and getting to know the hero and heroine outside of the MC lifestyle.  

Puck was...well...alpha at best...and a total bastard at worst...but I guess the title is fitting. He is definitely rough around the edges and doesn't know how to communicate with Becca about how he feels about her, so bossing her around seems fitting, but Becca is not about to become the woman her mother is, which is someone who lives for her man.  These two definitely butt heads but the making up, or the crazy hot sex everywhere and anywhere definitely makes up for the fights.  (or in Pucks head, him telling and expecting her to listen..haha)

I actually purchased the Audio Book of SILVER BASTARD and I listened to it and read some parts and I had so much fun with this new crew.  It only got me more excited for Painter's Book, can't wait to see what happens with him and Mel.

Joanna Wylde is quite the story teller and if you have yet to read any of her wild and crazy Reapers MC Romances...I suggest you get started NOW!! (Horse is still my favorite!)

Starstruck is the perfect venue however rehearsals are marred by Dakota’s reluctance to resurrect her former bad-girl persona and complicated by an anonymous death threat.

A Haunted Bodyguard…

Enlisted by a mutual friend, Wyatt MacDermott—a seasoned protection specialist—agrees to act as Dakota’s temporary bodyguard. Forced to set aside a personal grudge in order to fulfill his duties, Mac’s stunned by his fierce and instant attraction to the reckless celebrity he’s long associated with his greatest regret.

I for one am so excited that Beth Ciotta is venturing out with her wonderful story telling and giving her readers a different side of her with first the Impossible Dreams Series and now OBSESSED, the first in the Starstruck Novella Series with Ellie J Rossi and Cynthia Valero.  

OBSESSED was a quick read that introduces us to a sexy Bodyguard for hire and a washed up pop princess that is more than meets the eye.  I often feel bad for pop singers gone wrong, and Ciotta really was able to get into the mind and body of what these young ladies might be feeling, thinking and going through when trying to make a comeback.  So kudos to you Beth.....I was totally in the story like I was experiencing it all myself!

The romance between Wyatt and Dakota/Lucy was lightening fast, but nonetheless romantic, and explosive, like that first kiss you experienced with the guy you have been crushing on...yeah...that kind of explosive!  I enjoyed the little bit of mystery and the side story with Wyatt's sister was very realistic!

OBSESSED makes for a Fun afternoon read!

Fortune, Colorado #1

Welcome to Fortune, Colorado—where the air is clean, the men are rugged, and the all the good ones… are bachelors.

Born into the infamous Charlemagne equestrian empire, Shannon has been raised to do whatever it takes for the family business. Even if it means going undercover and digging up dirt on a competitor. It's easy enough when she believes he's a bad guy whose success seems too good to be true. In fact, Shannon's excited to put the aggravatingly sexy Irishman in his place and get back in her father's good graces. All she needs is to stay focused on the goal … and out of Sean Muldoon's arms.

From stealing a thoroughbred racehorse from the Irish mob to striking gold in the mountains of Colorado, there's little Sean hasn't experienced. But when it comes to resisting his hot new stable manager, he's out of luck. With the mob hot on his heels, keeping Shannon off their radar is all but impossible, and he's not about to put her in danger too. Sean wants Shannon, but how can he offer her a future … when he can't even guarantee tomorrow?

I'm sorry...was there more to this book than just the Sexy as Sin, Black Irish Sean Muldoon? Really?  I must have not been able to see past the page where Shannon meets Sean for the first time.....ohhhh mama!!  Did I ever tell you I have a thing for guys with accents? Yea...Sean Muldoon definitely does it for me...Very Tom Hardy-esque!  

(In my mind...This is Sean...I know Tom is English...but oh well)


So sorry...moving on...the book...GETTING LUCKY...quite the fun start to a new series from Jennifer Seasons, an Avon Romance author that came onto the scene with her Diamonds and Dugouts series and then took some time off, and is BACK with the Fortune, Colorado series, beginning with Sean Muldoon, who we met in THROWING HEAT as Peter Kowalskin's half brother.  (BTW....Peter Kowalskin...OMG...can you say MUST READ!)

The Fortune, Colorado series definitely has the Fools Gold (Susan Mallery) feel to it, with a town and secondary characters that feel as big as the main characters, but don't overtake the love story, which I have to say, was on quite the sizzle from the first time Shannon and Sean meet!  It is always hard to try and balance the first in a series with trying to make it only about the main characters and their love story and also, trying to get in information to build the next few books, or about the town/back story/etc, but Jennifer did a great job at giving a nice balance, and still keeping me hooked on Sean and Shannon and what might happen to them if the "secrets" come out!

With a steady balance of romance and mystery, GETTING LUCKY is a satisfying start to the Fortune, Colorado series from Season!  

I look forward to the next in the series and recommend giving GETTING LUCKY a try!

For the first time in her life, Hedley Sinclair holds the keys to her own future. She’s inherited the crumbling Greyson Park, but the disrepair does nothing to dissuade her.

Rafe has every intention of ridding Greyson Park of the conniving Sinclairs, once and for all. The last thing he expects is to find the beguiling Hedley Sinclair—the younger sister of his former fiancĂ©e—standing in his way. With drastic measures called for, he plans to marry her off in order to regain control of the estate. The only trouble is, he can’t seem to stop seducing her.
