Louise
The best way to get noticed is to find the hottest guy put him on your arm and get him to teach you everything you need to know to get the guy you have been dreaming about for 4 years. Wingman is a friends-to-lovers romance with of course some drama in between.

Chase was living his dream, part owner in a very successful bar he had a line of women at his disposal when Kelsey comes up with a plan for him to help get the confidence she needs to get her boss to take notice of her.  When all of her plans start falling into place she starts to wonder if this is everything she wanted. The dream guy or the Bartender.

Kelsey had zero confidence and I hated that her mother was the one that did that to her, constantly being put down takes it toll on people but she found her inner confidence started standing up for herself. Kelsey turned into a strong woman who knew what she wanted (in the end!) and went for it, consequences be dammed. Chase had the player swagger down pact, he built protective walls up to ensure his heart was protected, but deep down he showed a caring loveable side just waiting to come to the surface with the right woman.

Chase and Kelsey had a very easy-going friendship which built a strong trust which brought them together and make spark fly. They had chemistry from the beginning and it came through in waves leaving me hanging for “lessons”.

This was my first Katie McCoy book and I will now go back and read book 1 of the series, Rascals. The book was easy to read and the friendship banter between all characters was on point, Katie left me wanting more of these two, counting down until the next book is released. I personally loved reading this book and didn’t want to put it down, if you are looking for a HEA with some swoon worthy moments, Wingman is the book for you.

Eeeek. I really enjoyed this book. Wingman is the second book of the Rascal’s series. Think this was a good second book to follow up one as good as the first. This book has a lot of humor which adds so much to this book. This book also has a bit of romance too. Add in a pinch of drama and this book is borderline perfect.
The plot of this book of this book was much anticipated. We got to see Kelsey and Chase in the first book, which made us want to know more. I liked the idea of this book. What happens when you ask a playboy for help? This book is a good representation of that. I also enjoyed the way the author developed the storyline.
Kelsey was such a clueless character, but also a wonderful one. I love how she knew she needed help so she turned to someone she trusted and asked. That shows her strength. She is a hoot to read about. Chase is an interesting character. I wanted to smack him way too many times. I loved reading his back story though. It explains so much about him.
Oh and the heat. These two characters had chemistry even in the first book. You could tell that if these two ever did come together it was going to be explosive. This section of the book went well above and beyond my expectations. I really loved these two together.
The pace of this book is steady. The storyline development was done very well. I really loved all the characters and think I can see where some of these characters are going. I cannot wait to see where this series goes next.
In conclusion, I really enjoyed this story. Kelsey and Chase are two dynamic characters that really know how to heat it up. I would recommend this book to others and have already gotten a friend to go back and read book one. I cannot wait for the next in the series!

Release Blitz & Review - Going For The Hole - L.P. Dover





Title: Going for the Hole
Standalone
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 25, 2018




Blurb


Grip it softly.

Stroke it smooth.

And you’ll sink right into the hole. That’s my motto both on
and off the golf course. The women come in full supply everywhere I go and
there are no complaints. Maybe it’s the size of my driver that gets them going.

I’m Lucas “Ace” Montgomery, professional golfer and world
record holder for the longest drive in golf history. The PGA Tour has been my
life, but it’s time for a break. A few relaxing weeks of drinking and golf with
friends in Myrtle Beach is what I need. However, when a bright pink ball knocks
me out on the course, and a blonde beauty comes to my aid, I expect to see a
gallery girl, a.k.a a member of the Party Groupie Association. Trust me, those
girls know how to have fun. Although, to my surprise, it’s not what I get at
all.

Dr. Ashley Locke is beautiful and everything I’d want if I
was ever to get serious about someone. Unfortunately, she has no interest in me
whatsoever which only makes me want her more. All she wants is to get through
her friend’s bachelorette weekend and go back to her life, but after injuring
me on the course, I’m not letting her run away so easily. When I want
something, I get it.

I’m not competing for money this time. All I want is to win
her heart.

Excerpt



“When can I see you again?”
I shook my head. “I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
“I took a needle in the ass for you. Surely, that deserves
more of your attention?”
Why did he always have to give me that devilish smile of
his? As much as I wanted to hate it, I couldn’t.“Why are you doing this? Can’t
you find someone else?”
“Of course I can, but I want you. We can have secret
meetings in here if you’re still embarrassed to be seen in public with me.”
I rolled my eyes. “I’m not embarrassed. You’re you, and
I’m a respectable member of society.”
He burst out laughing. “Okay, I see how it is.”
“I just don’t want the publicity,” I added. “You can
understand that, right? You of all people should know what it’s like not to
have privacy.”
His smile faded. “You’re right, I do, but it’s my life. I
can’t change who I am.” My body shivered with the intensity of his stare. “For
once, I thought I’d found someone who wanted me for me and not my money or
fame.”
Guilt racked my body and I sighed. “Okay, I give in. I can
see you tomorrow, after I get out of the spa. Maybe we can order in room
service.”
Eyes twinkling, he went over to the door and opened it. “Now
that’s a plan I can get behind.”
Before I could walk out, he stood in
my way, body close to mine. “I’m going to break through that ice wall of yours,
sunshine. One way or another.”
I batted my eyelashes in an innocent matter. “Good luck with
that.”






OUR REVIEW:

“Finding love while on vacation, 5 stars”


Dover has a way with making her readers fall in love with the characters right off the bat. Every single one brings something new to the table. Lucas and Ashley do just that. I laughed during Going for the Hole and at times cringed. I was engaged the whole time and devoured it in one sitting. If you’re looking for a fun romance with a side of sports look no further. 

Lucas golfs in the PGA and is finally starting to feel the burn, and not the good kind. The kind where you start to feel like the tournaments are work and your not having any fun. That’s why he decided to make a change and go on vacation with his brother and best friend. what he didn’t expect was to find Ashley. Will he get the girl or will something derail his game?

Ashley is all work and no play. But her future sister-in-laws bachelorette party proves to be the perfect kind of play. Especially when she meets Lucas. She only plans on one night, but she gets a whole lot more. Will her best laid plans and reputation come burning down because of Lucas? Or will he prove to be the best thing that ever happened to her?

These two were the best sort of opposites. Lucas reminded Ashley what it was like to have fun and take risks and she proved to him that serious and settled down were in his wheel house of possibilities. Basically, right off the bat after these two met they were serious. It was kind of insta-love but one that they made wait to come to complete fruitation at the end. I loved these two’s journey and hope to get another sneak peek later.

OUR REVIEW:


If you like heat, then this is the book for you. Bride to Keep is a reverse harem story. This book is different than others reverse harem books I have read, which is a good thing. This book has action, but it also has a lot of heat. I enjoyed this book.

I liked the plot of this book. Dangerous men kidnap a woman for their own personal motivations. What I can say is those motivations will surprise you. I wasn’t expecting the reasoning behind their kidnapping of this woman. I can say it set of a chain of events that will bring about some major consequences.

Monet is an interesting main character. She is strong willed, but also smart. She has an excellent sense of self-preservation. I really liked the moves she made within this book. I think Cal was my favorite guy from the four guys, but that is just because I feel like I got to know him best. 

The heat in this book in unrivalled. If you like dirty and kinky sex, then this is the book for you. There is tons of scenes that made me blush. I think the whole idea of reverse harem is hot on its own, but I especially think the authors did a good job taking this book to the next level with the heat. 

So the writing style of this book is ok. I liked the characters well enough. The pace was steady. I understood what was going on. My complaint is that it wasn’t enough. I needed more from the guys to feel more invested in them. I was completely invested in in Monet, but I didn’t feel that same connection with the guys.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. It was a good and sexy read. I really liked the action within the book as well. It was just enough to give me a taste without feeling over powering. This book surprised me. I would recommend this book to others. I would hope that maybe the authors would write a novella or something similar to give us more of the boys

Review Tour - Chased With Strength - Hayley Faiman


Title: Chased With Strength
Series: A Cash Bar Novel
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: June 25, 2018
Cover Design: Cassy Roop at Pink Ink Designs




“Loaded with scorching heat, nail biting suspense, and deeply emotional love, Chased With Strength is a book that completely takes you over the second you start reading.” ~ The Red Hatter Book Blog


Hayden was created by a man named after the devil himself. She is a survivor. A girl who has seen more of hell than any one person ever should.

A new life was handed to her, when the Notorious Devils saved her.

Crooner had a family of blood once. Orphaned, his life seemed to fall apart, until he met the Notorious Devils.

He had all the family he thought he needed. That is, until a teenage single mother in need of protecting is thrown into his path.

He knows he’s no good for her. She’s too tempting to resist. Their road will be rough—their journey is not for the weak.

*Recommended for readers 18+ due to Violence, Language and Sexual Content 








Hayden has a past which is filled with baggage, she never gives up and has the strength of a woman who is determined to give her son a family that both of them deserve. Ward “Crooner” has denied himself for years, growing up with parents that had some belief’s he knows is wrong but can’t seem to shake. Crooner has to make a decision, claim her as his own or set her free. 

This book brings up a lot of dark issues and takes you on a journey that you don’t even know how Hayden is surviving each day. Hayden proves that she is a strong, independent woman who will continue to dust herself off and try again, doing everything to support her son Easton. Crooner is a alpha male who has beliefs that are not ordinary that make him feel not worthy of Hayden that has been through hell at such a young age. He fights his attraction, will he give in and claim the woman he loves? 

Hayden and Crooner has chemistry from the beginning, something that they don’t share for a long time, when they finally come together their slow burn has built up to explosive levels, leaving both of them wondering why they took so long to get there. 

Hayley has done an amazing job with Chased with Strength, she went deep with some dark and serious issues that could for some make them uncomfortable. I personally felt that they enhanced the book and gave you a higher level of understanding of both characters.   

This is the second book in the Cash Bar series and spin off of Hayley’s Notorious Devils books. Having read all the books, it was great to hear from previous characters and understand the storyline. I personally loved this book and cannot wait for the next one in the series.

I was born and raised in California. My husband and I met when I was just 16. We were married a few years later, moving to Oregon while he was in the US Coast Guard.

Texas is now where we call home, where our boots rest, and where we're raising our two little boys and a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.
