Living life at my finest!

New! Kai by Cory Cyr

Title: Kai
Series: War & Piece Chronicles #1
Author: Cory Cyr
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: March 1, 2019
Welcome to VIP Fitness…
Tegan Scott’s porn career ended years ago, but the infamy of Tawny Temp clings to her like a shadow. Planning to take her multimillion-dollar sex toy company public, Tegan has to transform herself into something a little more Tawny and a little less full-figured. No one wants a frumpy size fourteen when they still fantasize about the stunning size four.
When her personal assistant books her a three-month stay at the prestigious Virgin Islands Personal Fitness, Tegan comes face to face with Satan’s own personal trainer,
the most arrogant and infuriating man in existence.


Ninety days of sweat and starvation with not a cupcake in sight…
Has she finally entered the gates of hell?
Kai Addison, the creator of VIP Fitness, is a renowned personal trainer, womanizer, and rule maker. Attractive, athletic, and wealthy, he has the envy of every man and the desire of every woman, but no one can carve their initials into his heart of stone.
Then she shows up…
The porn star that kept Kai’s frigid Alaskan nights steaming hot.
Right away, Kai finds his bedroom fantasy is actually the most bitter, man-hating, vexing woman in existence.
Then one drunken night leads to a mistake that could cost Kai his club and his reputation.

That she was the porn star and not him caught my attention and interest in reading this romance. Tegan is 37, overweight, a former porn star, and a successful business owner. She is “forced” to get in shape because her company is going public, and she will need to come out of hiding to face the public. I could relate to her and her insecurities as she lands at VIP Fitness and faces a hot trainer who is 11 years younger and surrounded by young, fit women.

Kai was a bit into himself and not interested in Tegan’s current look as he was stuck on her porn star image. At first, I was not a fan of his, but I could understand how his experience limited to a specific type of females would keep him from being able to appreciate who Tegan was today. His colleagues, Reece and Jasper, were just as hot and sexually active as he was. They were promiscuous, but would not sleep with clients..

Tegan rocked Kai’s world as he got to know her beyond her Tawny Temp image. Tegan had to face her insecurities and the fact that she hadbeen hiding. This endeared her to me. Kai had to face his demons and not backslide to bad habits as falling for Tegan put him into a tailspin.

I liked Kai, though not as much as I had liked Shea from Bite and Release. I liked Tegan’s business and Ronnie her assistant. I would have liked a bit more of Ronnie and her love, Nadia. I hope that this series will include Reece’s, Jasper’s, and Harriet’s romances too.

I enjoyed the pace of the story and how Kai had to grow up enough to let go of his lifestyle that he had outgrown. Tegan and her cupcakes! Reading this got me craving cupcakes. I enjoyed this romance with humor and drama that kept me reading to the epilogue.




About Love On High Steel Bridge

Author: Rebecca Rohman
Release Date: February 26, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense
Approximate Number of Pages/Words: 500/146,000
Format: Ebook & Paperback


Captain Dorian Rae is a wounded soul who gets his greatest pleasures from being in the great outdoors and soaring the skies. When he has a life-changing encounter with a beauty on Washington State’s High Steel Bridge, he never anticipates that one meeting would have an enduring effect on him and change their worlds forever.


But fate seems determined to throw them together when she repeatedly shows up not only in his dreams but also in reality, and in his past when he finds out that she played a role in the death of his best friend.

When a seemingly impossible friendship develops between the two, the lines between friendship and romantic relationship become blurred and Dorian’s efforts to stay out of a relationship—especially with a woman with such a tattered past―comes into question.

While her past catches up with their present, and disapproving family and friends enter the mix, the already deep-seated conflict that at first kept these two people apart, now threatens to break them up forever.

Love On High Steel Bridge will take you through high altitudes and to some devastating lows. If you like suspense, steamy love scenes and unexpected plot twists, come with Captain Rae as he flies the skies on this riveting journey.



A romance between an ex-convict and her rescuer who was friends with one of the victims that she was in part convicted for made a very interesting story. The complications in reintegrating into society is made easier for her because she manages to get a job and an apartment. She can no longer work as a doctor, but she is rebuilding her life weighed down with guilt because of her part in several deaths.

Initially it was a bit hard to root for Robin because I was not sure how complicit she was in the deaths. I found his acceptance and caring for her fairly quickly after finding out that she had something to do with his friend’s death a bit hard to understand. As the story continues, Dorian reveals his own secret guilt from his past which makes it easier to understand his viewpoint.

There is also the woman she is becoming as she helps a homeless family and decides to be helpful and not bitter and angry. There are family and friends who react with anger, disappointment, and hostility towards her. There is a lot of drama and some angst that adds depth and some introspection as I process how my feelings about her change as the story continues.

There was also a terrific suspenseful storyline as someone was stalking and sabotaging her. There were multiple potential culprits as many people still felt that she had not paid sufficiently for her crime. I was guessing incorrectly until the final reveal. Wow!

And at the core of it was the romance and sexy scenes. Steamy, redeeming, full of love and understanding. And a heartstopping scene near the end.

I had a lot of feels while reading this. I felt sure, unsure, self-righteous, disappointed, angry, sad, hopeful, and happy. I was not thrilled with how he dealt with the threat of his violent ex-girlfriend and his friend’s twin. That seemed dangerous and made me very uncomfortable.

Overall I really enjoyed this story. There were highs and lows as she dealt with her past choices. I am glad that I read it. I believe that she became a better person which is the redeeming part of the story. So good to challenge my beliefs about ex-cons and people.

Note: I received an advance reader copy. This is my honest review. I have read and own many ebooks by this author.


Excerpt – Their First Encounter…

“Don’t jump,” I plead with the woman teetering on the edge of the rail of High Steel Bridge, Washington. She’s close to falling three hundred plus feet to her death.

She swiftly turns to me, a blackened stream of tears leaks from her beautiful, emerald eyes.

An explosion erupts in my chest as I get near her. “Whatever it is, you’ll get through it, but it’s not worth your life.”

I take a step closer, hoping to get nearer in case she ignores my appeal.

“I have nothing left,” she cries. “I’ve hurt and lost my family and everyone I care about. My kids hate me. All I’ve done is cause everyone heartache and pain. I have nothing to live for…I have nothing to offer them…they’d all be better off without me.”

“I doubt that’s true.”

She looks down and for a second, I think she’s going to jump.

“Please don’t!” I step closer to her and stretch out my hand. “Please. My name is Dorian—Dorian Rae. Please, let me help you.”

“You don’t know me…you don’t want to know me,” she sobs. “I’m a horrible person. I’ve done horrendous things and I’ve hurt innocent people, and no matter what I do, I could never, ever fix it. I could never give back what I took from them. No matter what I do, I will never make it right. Everyone would be better off if I weren’t here.”

Sweat trickles down my brow as I try to figure out what to say to this woman to stop her from taking her life.

I make another attempt. “I’m here. And if you’d like someone to talk to, I’d be willing to listen.” I slowly step closer to her. If I lunged forward, I could probably grab her wrist, but I don’t want to startle her with sudden movements and cause her to fall over.

I stretch my palm toward her. “Take my hand. Let’s give this another try. I’ll listen. I’m here to help you. Or maybe there’s someone else you’d prefer I call?”

“No. I’d be doing them all a favor if I were out of their lives. Thanks for trying to help…but this would be best for everyone. If I’m gone, I can’t hurt anyone—I can’t cause any more pain.”

“Look, I understand things are rough but please…”

She looks me in the eye. “I’m sorry.”

The gushing waterfall below fills the air accompanied by her sobs. She slightly lifts one of her feet as if to step to her death when I leap toward her, grab her wrist and pull her off the railing and into my arms where we both crash onto the road.


I breathe.

I sit with this woman in my arms where for minutes her sobs echo through the clean air as she clutches onto me tightly and bawls. My shoulders relax as I hold her.

It then occurs to me that I’ve never seen someone in such intense pain although I can relate to it.

My chest clenches as I hold her in my arms and in some way, though I know nothing of her troubles, I feel this inexplicable connection to her and find myself relating to her pain.

“It’s going to be okay,” I whisper, gently stroking her long, jet-black hair. “You’ll make it through this. I’ve been there. I know it’s hard but give it some time.”

As I comfort her, a black and pink backpack catches my attention on the sidewalk. It matches her shoes so it must be hers. It looks like she’d been hiking. However, would she be hiking alone in such a secluded area? If she came up here for the sole purpose of killing herself, why bring camping gear?

“I’m sorry.” She backs away from my hold. “Thanks for your help.”

She rises to her feet, picks up her bag and walks toward the other side of the bridge where cars are parked.

“Wait.” I run to catch up with her. “Let me get you some help or take you to a hospital.”

“I’ll be fine. Thanks,” she responds still in tears.

My fear that she’ll try this again prompts me to hold her wrist. “You shouldn’t be alone. Let me help you. If you like, I’ll stay with you while you call a friend or a family member, or I can take you to the nearest hospital myself.”

“I don’t know you—”

“My name is Dorian Rae.” I slip my hands into my pocket, pull out my wallet, retrieve my driver’s license and my airline ID and show it to her.

Through her tears, she looks at it, then me in silence but does not respond.

“Look, I will not leave you here alone. Either we call someone you’re close to or you let me take you to the hospital. Otherwise, I’ll call the police. And I doubt I’ll get a signal up here so that leaves you with only one option. Come on, you shouldn’t be alone.”

I take her backpack from her hand and extend my open palm toward her. “Let me help you. Please.”

Hesitantly, she stretches out her hand to meet mine while soft sobs leave her lips.

“Did you drive up here?”

She nods.

“Well, I’ll take you to the hospital and we’ll worry about getting your car after.”

She murmurs a soft okay when we arrive at the parking area.

“May I ask your name? If you’re uncomfortable, you don’t have to tell me.”

She looks down and shakes her head as silent tears continue down her cheeks.

There are three vehicles here including mine. I open the door on the passenger side to allow her into my car, slip our backpacks into the backseats and take pictures of the remaining two vehicles before I get into the seat beside her. If she’s not comfortable telling me her name, I doubt she would want to tell me which of the two vehicles she owns.

I start the ignition and turn to her. “It’s okay. I’m going to take you to the nearest hospital. If there is anything else I can do for you, let me know, okay?”

Looking down, she nods in acknowledgment.

We drive along the wooded and sometimes barren road mostly in silence. The occasional sniffling from her tears are the only sounds invading the quiet air.

The late afternoon sun is leaving for the day. Fifteen minutes later, when I get to US Highway 101, a signal comes through on my cell phone and I find out the nearest hospital is fifteen minutes away.

She stays in the car when I pull up to the emergency room.

Is she scared?

After the last hour, I could only imagine that she might be. I tell the first nurse I see why she’s here. However, when I explain that I don’t know her, not even her name, they tell me they’ll take it from there.

The nurse walks out with a wheelchair to my vehicle and helps her out.

“Would you like me to stay with you?” I ask.

“No, thank you,” she whispers. “You’ve done enough.”

“We’ll handle it,” the nurse says to me.

I grab her bag from the back seat and hand it to her along with my business card. “If you ever need anyone to talk to, please call me.”

She whispers a soft, “Thank you.”

I watch the nurse wheel her away until she disappears from my view.

Dating Games, an all-new standalone Romantic Comedy by T.K. Leigh is AVAILABLE NOW!!


Note to self: When your boyfriend dumps you on your thirtieth birthday, it’s probably not the smartest idea to drink so much that you wake up in the same bed as the mysterious hottie wearing the gorgeous suit who you noticed sitting across the bar.

The only silver lining of this obvious lack of judgment is the promise of never seeing Mr. Suit again, not in a city the size of New York.

Or so I thought, until a story I’m working on about the country’s most sought-after and elusive escort lands me in the same café as Mr. Suit. So I do what any self-respecting woman of my age would do in my shoes… Try to ignore him.

But he won’t let me.

Instead he makes a proposition that leaves me questioning whether I need to have my ears checked. Be his fake girlfriend for a summer of wealth and excess in the Hamptons. In return, he’ll help me win back my boyfriend’s heart.

Juvenile? You bet.
Effective? Could be.
Bad idea? Most likely.

But what do I have to lose?

Apparently, a lot more than I originally bargained for.
Let the games begin…

Guinevere (Evie) gets dumped on her 30th birthday by her boyfriend of 12 years. This premise is familiar, but Evie’s drunken monologue on the bartop was hilarious and set the tone for the book. When Julian was introduced as the hot guy in the suit who took her home, but did not have sex with her after she vomited on him, I knew I was in for a romcom treat. While Evie is sarcastic, her friends, Chloe and Nora, are scene stealers. I hope that they both get their own romance stories.

This was a mix of Cinderella, Pretty Woman, and Breakfast At Tiffany’s; all of which were mentioned several times throughout the story. He was the billionaire through an unexpected way. He plied her with designer clothes, shoes, and accessories along with attending exclusive parties. I really liked that her career of writing for the magazine did not disappear nor was it diminished. The sexy scenes popped and were smoking hot. There was plenty of chemistry between Guinevere and Julian.

This is the fake girlfriend/ boyfriend trope done with a twist of her writing an expose on August Laurent. That interview was not the best or strongest part for me. It seemed to be a side story that worked as plot driver later on in the story. However, the storyline about domestic violence was strong and added some depth to this romance. There is a tragic turn, but I appreciate how the author handled this sensitive and important issue.

Overall this was a satisfying romantic comedy with a serious message that worked on many levels, though one twist really did not work for me, and I wish it had gone in a different direction. I enjoyed this mainly because Evie discovered that her planning and willingness to settle for less with Trevor caused her to almost miss out on Julian. Also Julian’s backstory was compelling. Romance and comedy blended together so well.

Note: I received an advance reader copy. This is my honest opinion.

Cover Designer: CT Cover Creations

Amazon CA:
Amazon AU:
For one magical night…
I was Cinderella at the ball, sipping champagne and dancing under the stars with the most gorgeous man I’d ever laid eyes on.
For one magical night…
I was the sparkle in his eyes and in the heat of passion…the name on his lips.
For one magical night…
I lived my fairytale and the man before me was my dream come to life…my very own Prince Charming.
But, my magical night disappeared with the light of day…
As did my handsome prince.
So, just like Cinderella…I ran.
All the way home to New York City…
To lick my wounds and nurse my broken heart.
Now 3,459 miles away from that magical night… my prince’s face was smiling back at me…from the magazine rack at the grocery store.
It wasn’t pretend.
He really is a prince.
And he’s searching for me.
Now, I need to do everything in my power to not be found…
Read the entire prologue at:
I enjoyed this royal romp that became quite a satisfying sexy romance with a mature heroine and hero. Claire is 40, American, and working at a top fashion magazine. She is in the UK because of her best friend. When she helps out with a photoshoot of the royal wedding pretending to be someone named Candace, she meets “Captain”. He turns out to be Prince Randolph. Their romantic night leads Randy to look for Candy. Thankfully this is a short scene and not the main focus of the book.
There are several sexy and romantic scenes with Randy and Claire. They do get to know each other, so it was not just an insta-love. As she goes back and forth between UK and USA for her friend, her encounters with Randy are sexually satisfying, but not so good for her heart as she is falling for him and he for her. The way that they met is full of complications and can cost them their relationship.
The conflict worked for me and kept me wondering how they would work it out. I fell for many of the side characters too.
This was my first novel that I have read by this author. It won’t be my last. I was pleasantly surprised that she offered nuances and moments that showed how good both Claire and Randy were.
Note: I received an advance reader copy. This is my honest review.
Taryn Bradley makes her home on a small citrus ranch in the rolling hills of California. When she’s not tending to her many animals, or reading, she is barefoot in her writing cave, spinning tales and drinking whiskey from a tea cup. Randy’s Candy is her third novel.

New! Hwy 550 by Freya Barker

Title: HWY 550
Author: Freya Barker
Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: February 17th, 2019
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Special Agent Luna Roosberg lives and breathes her job. Who needs a personal life when work is so rewarding?
When a new case sends her to investigate a local motorcycle club, covering as the president’s new flavor of the week, the lines between professional and personal quickly start to blur.
Although the Arrow’s Edge MC stays mostly on the right side of the law since Ouray took the gavel, the appearance of the feds at their gate can still rattle his cage.
When a string of robberies points squarely in Ouray’s direction, he’s forced to cooperate and put the blonde, prim and proper half-pint on the back of his bike.
With pressure mounting both in—and outside—the club, Ouray no longer knows who he can trust, except the woman who is shaking up his life—and stirring his blood.

Luna (41) is a kickass, independent, FBI agent who can box. She has to go undercover as an the “old lady” to an MC president. Ouray is the MC president who turned the club from criminal activity to legit businesses. They met prior to her assignment, so he knows what she really does. I liked that she did not have to lie to him. And there was a deaf child being offered shelter by the MC club. This added to the challenge of helping along with the abuse he had received while in foster care.

The characters were compelling, the suspense kept me guessing, and the sexy scenes were scorching hot! Luna’s ability to help Cody overcome his mistrust of the club and Ouray was heartwarming. There were many suspicious side characters so this was a page turner for me. I needed to know who was behind the robberies that were being staged to look as if the Arrow’s Edge MC had done them. When it was revealed, I was surprised and satisfied.

Luna had to transform from completely independent to allowing room for Ouray and a relationship. They butted heads and brought out the best in each other. Nosh, Grandma, and Rowtag left the biggest impression.

I have read and enjoyed the first two books in this series. This is the one I was waiting forever since Luna’s character was introduced in a previous story. I liked that she was the female FBI agent, whereas the other stories had men as the cops and agents.

Note: I received an advance reader copy. I have purchased and read many books by this author.

Presents : New Release
The Light at Dawn
by K.L. Montgomery
Genre: Contemporary Romance
No matter how dark the night, hope is reborn at dawn.
It wasn’t just her marriage that crumbled in the wake of unspeakable tragedy, it was her entire life. Even though five years had passed since she lost Evan, Angelia White was still picking up the pieces. Getting involved in a cause she could pour her broken heart into was just another part of the healing process
The wounds were too fresh for Mark Lyon to keep his grip on reality. Everything he thought he knew and believed was obliterated when he lost Ashleigh, along with his heart. The only way he could pick up the pieces was to fight for a way to prevent any other parent from ever suffering such merciless pain.
Two heartbroken parents enduring the darkest of nights.
Two wounded souls waiting for the light at dawn.
Authors Note: Contains sensitive subject matter that may be upsetting to some readers.



I loved that a romance novel took on a controversial topic in school shootings and used it as the conflict between the heroine (age 42) and hero (48) effectively. It also showed both sides of the debate respectfully and humanized both. It handled grieving parents and a second chance at love. I really was not sure that these heavy topics would work in a romance, but with this author’s deft wording, it worked beautifully.

Title: Burning For Autumn (On Call Series #1)
Author: Freya Barker
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: January 8, 2019
Cover Designer: Freya Barker
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

When Autumn McCoy accepted a temporary work contract in Durango, she thought it would be a safe way to add some spark to her existence. She may be getting more than she bargained for when she finds herself the target of impending danger.The outspoken forty-two-year-old isn’t prepared for that spark to ignite flames threatening to engulf every aspect of her life.

Buried under the weight of responsibilities, all interim Chief of Police, Keith Blackfoot, wants is to get back to good old-fashioned detecting. He gets his chance when an encounter with a feisty redhead

seems to incite a wave of arson cases. Although a visit from friend and firefighter, Roman “Chief” Proudfit, provides some direction, he’s left to battle an invisible menace fueling fires that could leave his town—and his heart—in ashes.

Kindle Unlimited



I enjoyed reading a new series that included characters from a previous series. Autumn is 42, and Keith is 44. She is on a temporary contract from another state and starts to get cryptic, handwritten notes. At first, they seemed harmless, but as fires are being started frequently since she arrived in town, they start to feel ominous.

I liked Autumn or Red as Keith calls her. She is independent and a cat lady. I wish there was more revealed about her own incident, which was mentioned but not elaborated on. Keith was such an alpha male, but not in a totally obnoxious way. This is more of a suspense story with a romance than vice versa. Figuring out who is the arsonist and where they would strike next kept me invested in the story.

Keith’s reactions to other men in her life could be a bit over-the-top, but ultimately he is a good man. There are some very sexy, erotic scenes that are also romantic. A couple of scenes were similar to other stories in the previous series, but there were a couple of unexpected twists that kept this feeling fresh.

I liked the side characters who were their friends or who just helped out. I am also even more excited by the excerpt for Hwy 550 because I really like Luna and have been waiting for her story. And that teaser really whet my appetite!
