Kelly Brothers #6
Crista McHugh
Released March 25th, 2015

All-Star linebacker Frank Kelly is as well-known for his off-the-field hits as he is for his on-field ones. When a dance club brawl ends with him in handcuffs again, he’s rescued by a well-connected woman who can get the charges dropped in exchange for a small favor. If he’ll agree to play the part of a doting boyfriend for two months, she’ll keep him out of the slammer and help restore his reputation.

Kiana Dyer may be the daughter of a Hall of Fame football player, but the charity organization she set up in his honor isn’t getting the media attention she’d hoped for. A staged romance with Frank Kelly is just the ticket she needs to get it in the spotlight. As the lines between fake and real start to blur, she begins to wonder if bailing him out was the best call she’s ever made. Just when everything seems to be falling perfectly in place, scandal surrounds her charity, and she’s the one left scrambling to clear her name.


As with all of Crista McHugh's Kelly Brother's Romances, we get a heartwarming story with a bit of drama, with a ton of humor and emotion to keep you wanting to keep on reading until the last page!

Frank has been our "Romeo" from the beginning of the series, charming and funny, but we never really get to see the 'Real" Frank and McHugh does a wonderful job at letting us see Frank without all the flash and cash, just Frank being a good man who might just happen to be a HUGH football star!  

Kiana was a little guarded but she learned to put down the walls for a bit and let Frank be someone she could count on, not the guy she thought was only a "player"!

Another wonderful romance in the Kelly Brothers Series and I can't wait for long awaited number seven!  If you haven't yet started the Kelly Brothers... I suggest you give it a try!  Fans of Belle Andre's SULLIVANS will be addicted to the Kellys'!

An Evil Dead MC Story (Book Four)
Nicole James
Releasing April 28th, 2015

The Evil Dead Motorcycle Club gave Wolf his nickname. They said it was because women stood about as much chance with him as Little Red Riding Hood stood against The Big Bad Wolf. And maybe that was true.

For Wolf, when it comes to his club, he’s all about loyalty. He loves his brothers, he loves the freedom of the road, and he loves his independence. When it comes to women, Wolf is all about the chase. He likes the hunt, he likes the challenge, and he loves women. And for the hot-as-hell badass biker, they’ve always come too easily. But they never fully satisfy him.

That is, until he met Crystal.

Buried under that hard-edged sexy-as-sin tomboy with the smartass mouth that can put any brother in the MC in his place, is a feminine side she only reveals when pushed. And Wolf is just the man to push. Problem is she’s the only woman to ever push back. Which only makes him more determined to have her.

Life in the Evil Dead MC isn’t easy, and neither is loving one of them. It’s a life that can leave a man scarred and bloody. And sometimes the fallout is far reaching and takes more than a man is willing to give.

It can be just as risky for any woman brave enough to love one of them.

The scars of life run deep, for both of them.

Sometimes life doesn’t give you a fairytale, sometimes you have to make your own.

And sometimes it takes a spitfire to tame a hell-raiser.

To Do:
Swim naked in the moonlight
Play in a high stakes card game
Ride an elephant
Be painted sans clothing.
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…


New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander was an award-winning television reporter until she discovered fiction was much more fun than real life. She turned to writing full time and has never looked back. Victoria grew up traveling the country as an Air Force brat and is now settled in a very old house in Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two allegedly grown children and two bearded collies. She firmly believes housework is a four-letter word, there are no calories in anything eaten standing up, procrastination is an art form, and it's never too soon to panic.

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 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.

Cover Reveal: REAPER'S FALL by Joanna Wylde (Reaper's MC #5) #PreOrder #MCRomance #Reapers @JoannaWylde

Reaper's MC#5
Joanna Wylde
Releasing November 10th, 2015

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 Valley #1

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!)

OBSESSED by Beth Ciotta (Starstruck #1) #Review #Giveaway @Tastybooktours @BethCiotta

Enter to Win 
an Upcycled Champagne Cork 
Bezel Necklace- shooting star - w/24 "chain

A showplace for talent. A playground for love. STARSTRUCK. A new contemporary continuity series by Beth Ciotta, Cynthia Valero, and Elle J Rossi. Three authors. One world. Launching with Ciotta’s sexy novella—Obsessed.

A Fallen Star…

A hot-mess of controversy and scandal, Dakota Breeze—tarnished pop star of fading fame and fortune—accepts a friend’s offer, taking refuge in a small Midwestern town in order to rehearse her comeback concert in secret. 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.

Obsessed with conflicting needs and united passion, Dakota and Wyatt spin out of control, indulging in a whirlwind affair and tempting an avenger’s wrath.


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!

Storytelling comes naturally to award-winning author Beth Ciotta. Dubbed "fun and sexy" by Publisher's Weekly, Beth specializes in contemporary, historical, steampunk, and paranormal romantic fiction.

Beth lives in NJ with her husband, two zany dogs, and a crazy cat. A retired professional performer, Beth now pours her artistic passion into her writing. To learn more about her colorful life, visit her website at www.bethciotta.com
