Release Boost~ My Anti-Hero by Tijan

 



Synopsis: 

I shouldn't have agreed to this. What was I thinking?
Appearing on a local news show? Just because something happened to me?
I live mostly in isolation on purpose.

But here I am.
I was so nervous that I needed the make-up chair, twice.
And then I walked past his room.

He's a giant—no softness, all muscle.
And a rich beard that made me want to rub myself all over it.
He made me see stars, literally because the second time I saw him, I tripped.
Or I would've, but he caught me, and the cameras were rolling.
Soon, that clip will be trending because he wasn't just another guest on the show.

He's Brett Broudou, the Kings' newest football star.
We couldn't be more opposite.
The only special thing about me is the reason I was on the show.
Brett, the Super Bowl champion, and me, the survivor who helped bring down the infamous Midwest Butcher.

Brett might not think he's anyone's hero, but he's about to become mine.

A/N: This is a 140k standalone.

4 Star Review ~ Notorious by KE Osborn




Title: Notorious
Series: LA Defiance MC #1
Author: K E Osborn
Genre: MC Romance
Tropes: Age Gap/Secret Identity
Found Family/Single Dad
Release Date: February 12, 2024


BLURB

Nothing but death surrounds me.
For years, I’ve lived with the ghosts of the people who have died because of me.
I hear their screams, I see their bodies.
Like a never-ending circle, the vision replays in my mind.

Hiding, locking myself away when the voices in my head get too loud, is my only saving grace. That is until one wild night, I meet Haven at a bar. She’s crazy, uninhibited, a little unhinged. Everything I didn’t know I needed.

By chance, she shows up at the clubhouse a week later—our connection instant. But war is brewing between the club and the Rojas Cartel. We’re on shaky ground, and tensions are high.

While Haven is staying at the LA Defiance clubhouse, I notice her inquisitiveness. It seems innocent at the time, but when everything comes to light, the betrayal is brutal, and nothing is as it seems. There’s so much more going on than I could have possibly imagined.

Secrets are revealed, enemies are closer than I could have predicted, and the war I am fighting in my head, is about to consume my entire world.

From USA Today Bestselling Author K E Osborn comes the highly desired first book in the LA Defiance MC Series.

This is a secret identity, age gap, suspense romance book, and can be read as a standalone.

REVIEW

Alpha and Haven's story was so good from the first sentence.  Alpha has been through so much in his life when meeting Haven a light definitely shined on them but there was a secret she held onto that could break them.  Alpha has lost a lot in his life and he is finally at the place that can make him who he was.

Haven is in the MC for a reason.  She has her orders and intends to follow through but there is something about Alpha that pulls her to him.  Haven's life was not sunshine and roses but she also knows there no way she can go through with the task.

Can they make it through what has been thrown at them? I enjoyed this story and can't wait for what's next in this series!

Release Blitz~ Surrender by Sam Mariano

 


Surrender (Coastal Elite, #4) by Sam Mariano and Laura Lovett is now live!



SOPHIE 
 
I knew better than to go to that party. 
I would have been much happier curled up at home eating Halloween candy by myself, but I had Mom's voice in my head telling me to make an effort now that I was in college, to put myself out there and socialize.
If I'd stayed home, I wouldn't have met him.
 
SILVAN 
Men have always committed atrocities chasing after their desires.
The men in my family have it down to an art form.
Personally, I've never experienced a desire that ran so deep it poisoned my soul.
Until the night I laid eyes on her.

It's really too bad she didn't feel the same way. It could have been a fairy tale.
I guess our story was meant to be something a little more twisted.
Oh well.
I desire Sophie Bradwell, and I don't care how many terrible things I have to do to get her... and keep her.


Surrender was previously released as Sophie's Surrender by the same authors.
Warning: This is a dark romance intended for a mature adult audience. If you have sensitivities to certain themes commonly found in dark romance, please make sure you read the author's note at the beginning of the book.

Review:

Tijan is a master of pulling you into her story and making your heart string pull at the right time!

Billie was the definition of a true baddie in the right way.  After a traumatic life, she just didn't want what happened to her to put her in the spotlight.  She wanted to just live but Brett pulled her out of herself.  

Brett is in the limelight because of his football status and he is a family man.  His life is family and football and he wouldn't want it any other way. When he meets Billie it was lust at first sight but it was definitely meant to be.  Brett has a lot on his plate but when his family is put in danger he will stop at nothing to make sure they are protected.

Billie and Brett has to find the way into each others heart while battles everything under the sun.  The push and pull in their relationship continues to draw you into their story.  Will everything being thrown at them stop what is meant to be?

Release Blitz & Review//Against All Odds by C.W. Farnsworth

image10.png

image3.jpg


He's the one guy she thought she'd never see again...


Against All Odds by C.W. Farnsworth is now live! 


Rylan Keller is dreading the start of spring semester. After choosing a college across the country and spending the past fall abroad, she’ll be a Holt University student. Worse than starting over at a new school? Starting over at a new school where your dad is the head coach of the men’s hockey team. And reluctantly agreeing to tutor a player, then coming face-to-face with the guy you thought you’d never see again.


Aidan Phillips has a reputation on campus. One he’s carefully curated to include limited reliability or responsibility. Outside of hockey, he spends his free time drinking, partying, and flirting. Often all three.


He’s a player off the ice as well as on it. Gorgeous, carefree, reckless. His one goal is to finally win Holt a championship, which he can only do if he keeps up his end of the tutoring arrangement. Hooking up with his tutor would be stupider than failing in the first place, even if the tutor in question wasn’t his coach’s daughter.


Rylan is determined to excel at Holt and make her fresh start a success. To finally have some fun, and not with a hockey player. Except, the more time they spend together, the harder it is to hold back.


But no matter how tempting giving in might be…the odds are stacked against them.

4 Star Review//

I have been on a kick with these hockey romances! This book gave me everything I wanted in a hockey romances and more. Coach's daughter, check. Forbidden relationship, check. Steam, sass, and sweetness, check. 

Rylan was a fun character. I thoroughly enjoyed her and Aiden was sexy and strong. They had sparks from the beginning right, right in that hot tub! I loved the dynamic between these two. If there is anyone you should avoid when playing a sport, it's the coach's daughter. But for Aiden that's a problem he can't stay away from.

If you love hockey romances, you should definitely check out this series by CW Farnsworth. With just the right amount of sass and sweetness, you're sure to fall completely in love! image7.png

5 Star Audio Review ~ Dangerous Minds (Takeback #5) by Riley Edwards

Synopsis:

Once upon a time there was young, na├»ve girl who fell madly in love with her brother’s Navy SEAL friend. It was one glorious, unforgettable summer. A magical whirlwind of new and exciting emotions. But this girl knew she wasn’t ready for Cole Keniston, not at 23. So, she did the only thing she could do, and left him.

It's me, I’m the girl who’d found her forever love and still walked away. I’ve waited years—more than 20 of them—to find my way back to Cole. I’ve come prepared for battle, and I’m armed with information Cole and his team needs to take down a human-trafficking ring. I am no longer the unsure, sheltered girl I once was. I’m wiser, stronger, and ready to take on any obstacle that stands in my way of claiming my future.

The former SEAL is about to be outplayed by the very ethos he’s lived his life by: I will never quit. I persevere and thrive on adversity. If knocked down, I will get back up, every time. I will not fail. That's if I don't die at the hands of the enemy before Cole and my brother can find me.

Review:
I don't know how I felt in the beginning about Mia and Cole.  The love/hate relationship was strong between the two of them.  Cole loved Mia when they were young but her walking away from him, and not understanding why, made his heart turn cold.  
Cole really loved Mia and seeing her again, only because her brother needed Cole to keep her safe, made him think about the past.  He wondered why and what could have been.  Mia is still very in love with Cole and has been for over 20 years but little does she know those feelings are definitely shared.
Cole and Mia finding each other again on top of finding trafficked women makes their life somewhat different.  Can Cole deal with the life Mia now has? Is Mia prepared to leave what she knows and loves?
This audio was great and a different type of read from RIley Edwards.  Aaron Shedlock and Emma Wilder did a fantastic job narrating this story!
