With only the wedding dress on her back and her honeymoon luggage in the car, Kari Worthington is running away. Determined to put her controlling father, her rigidly structured life, and the uptight groom she left at the altar in her rearview mirror, she escapes to the Texas Hill country . . . and lands on a tall, dark, and gorgeous winery owner's doorstep. All she needs is a job and a place to live until she can get back on her feet. So why is she fantasizing about losing herself in his powerful arms?

For Marc Cordero, freedom is so close he can taste it. He's devoted his life to managing the family business and being a single dad. Now with his daughter away at college and his brother taking over the winery, Marc is ready to hop on his Harley for parts unknown-until a runaway bride bursts onto the scene. Free-spirited and tantalizingly sexy, Kari excites him like no other woman has before. But when irresistible passion turns into something more, will Marc give up his future to take a chance on love?





"BABY IT'S YOU should be called BABY IT'S A WINNER!"- A Tasty Read

Firstly, I must say, if you haven't read a Jane Graves Romance...You are SOOO missing out!  The first book in the Rainbow Valley Series, COWBOY TAKE ME AWAY, drew me into a small Texan town where the gossip is hot and the men are hotter.  The series has a heartwarming story about the town of Rainbow Valley, (Read More Here) and Jane creates an ambivalence that draws you into the lives of the people of Rainbow Valley.

From the moment we meet Marc Cordero in COWBOY TAKE ME AWAY, I wanted him to have a HEA. A Single father at seventeen, he raised a wonderful daughter, and his two siblings, kept the family Winery going all these years, and it's time for him to hit the open road.  He wants nothing more than to jump on his motorcycle and leave Rainbow Valley behind.  BUT...in walks Kari Worthington, soaking wet, broke and in a wedding dress...yes...I know...and it ONLY gets better!!

BABY IT'S YOU was FABULOUS!!  Graves is a True Storyteller!  She writes a romance that has me laughing one moment and bawling my eyes out the next...that for me is a true test of what a romance is all about.  Marc and Kari will steal your heart and make you believe in true love!

Don't hate the player...

Bainbridge University sophomore, Emma Rae, embraces her title of perpetually single. All the guys at BU are total players, and if there's one thing Emma hates more than anything, it's a player.

Learn to play the game...

Ryan is tired of being the embarrassment of his frat house. Being a Delta means he should be playing the field, a different girl every night, just like the rest of his frat brothers. But he's the king of nerds, as they constantly remind him, and has never even had a real girlfriend. Hell, he isn't even allowed to live in the Delta house, instead living in a mod behind it.

He begs Emma to turn him into a player. In return he'll bring her to the Delta DASH--the party of the year. As an underclassman, Emma isn't allowed to the DASH without a Delta escort. She quickly agrees, knowing she can turn him into anything, as she's done with so many of the ghosts of boyfriends past.

She updates his image, teaches him how to flirt, how to kiss, and even how to drive a girl wild with his heated touch. She's groomed Ryan into the ultimate player, which is exactly what he wants.

The problem is she turns him into exactly what she wants too and must now decide whether this Project Em's Way is her greatest creation... Or her ultimate downfall.

When life gets you down...


Kayla Riggs is three weeks from graduation and has yet to have one college experience worthy of a memory, let alone a story to tell people later. Her BFFs make a deal with the player next door—show Kayla how to have a little fun before she settles into a life of mediocrity.

Hire a player to pick you up...
Jake Swanson only has a few weeks left as a cadet for the Bainbridge Island Fire Department before he can take his practical exams and be hired on permanently. The last thing he needs is a group of crazy women insisting he grant his cute-yet-boring neighbor three insane wishes—one for each week left of school. The only kicker is that she can’t know about the wishes or the deal is off.

When they offer him a deal he can’t refuse, he agrees to show Kayla how to have a little fun, and in turn has a lot more fun with her than he expected, or wanted. Now he must choose between keeping his word, or losing his heart.





Today I will be sharing my review for HIRING THE PLAYER, Book Two in the Campus Players Series by Allie K. Adams.  

HIRING THE PLAYER was definitely a fun New Adult read, which features Jake (Player) and Kayla (The List Maker)...You can already see where this is going.  

Kayla likes her structure and lists, keep things in her life easy, and Jake has a new woman every night...keeps things in his life "light and easy".  Neither are looking for a deep connection, but a sexual connection...they can certainly make that happen. 

I liked the character of Jake, knowing that there had to be more to him than just the "player" role he played so well.  Kayla was pretty cool, in a sense that she was insecure, but she stood up for herself and gained confidence throughout the book.  

A few little holes in the plot, here and there, got me a bit off track, but other than that, I thought the second book in the Campus Players Series was Sweet, Fun with a Dash of Sexy (that is for Jake)!

Cover Reveal: ALEX: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel by Sawyer Bennett @loveswept #reveal




ALEX (A Cold Fury Hockey Novel)

Loveswept Contemporary Romance

By: Sawyer Bennett

On sale: October 14, 2014


Hockey star Alexander Crossman has a reputation as a cold-hearted player on and off the rink. Pushed into the sport by an alcoholic father, Alex isn’t afraid to give fans the proverbial middle finger, relishing his role as the MVP they love to hate. Management, however, isn’t so amused. Now Alex has a choice: fix his public image through community service or ride the bench. But Alex refuses to be molded into the Carolina Cold Fury poster boy… not even by a tempting redhead with killer curves.

As a social worker, Sutton Price is accustomed to difficult people—like Alex, who’s been assigned to help her create a drug-abuse awareness program for at-risk youth as part of the team’s effort to clean up his image. What she doesn’t expect is the arrogant smirk from his perfect lips to stir her most heated fantasies. But Sutton isn’t one to cross professional boundaries—and besides, Alex doesn’t do relationships… or does he? The more she sees behind Alex’s bad-boy fa├žade, the more Sutton craves the man she uncovers.







USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett is a snarky Southern woman and reformed trial lawyer who decided to finally start putting on paper all of the stories that were floating in her head. Her husband works for a Fortune 100 company which lets him fly all over the world while she stays at home with their daughter and three big, furry dogs who hog the bed. Sawyer would like to report she doesn’t have many weaknesses but can be bribed with a nominal amount of milk chocolate.

Today I will be sharing my review for GROOMING THE PLAYER, and stop back over on Wednesday for my review of HIRING THE PLAYER.

As a fan of CAN'T BUY ME LOVE (Yes, Patrick Dempsey Throwback), I simply loved GROOMING THE PLAYER, book one in the Campus Players, a New Adult Series by Allie K. Adams.  For all of you Susan Mallery fans out there, if you remember the Bakery Sisters Series, and you loved SWEET TROUBLE (Book Three) as much as I did, you will fall for Emma and Ryan in GROOMING THE PLAYER.

Emma meets Ryan, a semi-nerdy frat boy, who is only in the frat because he has to keep up family tradition.  Emma agree's to help Ryan become "Hot" in exchange for being invited to one of the "exclusive" parties thrown by Ryan's frat.  Except these two might have just bitten off more than they can chew.

Emma felt a strange attraction to Ryan even before the make-over, and now that he is lookin F.I.N.E., she is thinking he might need some lessons in the bedroom as well.  Emma and Ryan fit together like PB & J, but neither can admit the feelings they have for the other are the REAL DEAL...and things head south after some villainous bitch causes some problems between the young couple.

I won't give away what happens, but just know that I finished this book in a few hours, it was that much fun, and I turned the last page of my kindle with a warm, giddy heart and a huge smile on my face.  Allie K. Adams reminded me of all the things I love about the New Adult genre, and I am so so glad that I gave GROOMING THE PLAYER a chance!
