The Bad Boy Next Door
Kendrick Place #2
By: Jody Holford
Releasing March 20th, 2017
Entangled Publishing: Bliss
In The Bad Boy Next Door (Kendrick Place #2) by Jody Holford, being the baby of her family hasn't been easy for Shay Matthews, especially considering her three overprotective brothers. Needing her freedom and a chance to see if she can be more independent, instead of relying on her family so much, she moves to Boston. She never expected to meet a man that could convince her to take a chance on love again, but her smoking hot next door neighbor, Wyatt Daniels, manages to get under her skin. Will they both risk their hearts for the chance at happy ever after, or have their past relationships left them too afraid to take a chance on each other?

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Holford, but after finishing this story, no way will it be the last I'll read by this talented author. From the start to finish, this story mesmorized me with its charming characters, well-written dialogue and a fast-paced plot that I couldn't put down because the hero is dreamy, despite his scowling and brooding ways and I couldn't wait to read more about him, especially once he meets Shay.

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories and what happens to Shay that makes Wyatt realize that there's no possible way he can keep his distance from the heroine. Both Wyatt and Shay have every reason to want to avoid relationships with both being betrayed by the ones they cared for. It made me feel sorry for the two of them, but I'm glad that Shay didn't give up on Wyatt, even when he kept pulling back from whatever was happening between them. However, in saying that, I loved every moment that Shay and Wyatt conversed, as they have such strong chemistry that spilled over onto the pages so sweetly and behind closed doors.

Both the main characters were highly entertaining, and I loved both their back stories. It made them the interesting and attention-grabbing characters that they were, because it wasn't easy for either of them to trust again after the disasters made by the last person of the opposite sex that they trusted. Wyatt being a cop is naturally suspicious, but his past makes him more so, because of what happened during his time doing undercover work. Can Shay show him that not everyone is out to deceive him? Moreover, Wyatt is hard-working, very good at his job and I liked how protective he is of Shay, especially because of what happens to her. But what I liked most of all about the hero is how he finds it hard to stay away from Shay.

While Shay, she's strong and brave by finally making the move away from her family. She needs her freedom after feeling smothered for too long, and I liked that she fought for her independence not just with her overprotective family but with Wyatt too. Indeed, she provides a good challenge for the hero by fighting him every step of the way, when he becomes too overbearing in trying to keep her safe. Moreover, she's smart and I liked how determined she was to prove she can make it on her own, and certainly the quick success she has in her event planning business proves her drive to succeed.

Overall, Ms. Holford has penned a fantastic read in this book where the secondary characters entertained me just as much as the main ones. Especially when the secondary characters are offering sound advice or when Wyatt's jealousy shines through because he thinks he's competing for Shay's affections against another man. The way this story ended had me smiling, because of the way Wyatt made things right between him and Shay. Who knew event planning could be used for the greater good in convincing the heroine how right they are for each other and that they shouldn't allow anything to keep them apart. I would highly recommend The Bad Boy Next Door by Jody Holford, especially if you enjoy the sexy protector trope or if you enjoy books by authors Coleen Kwan, Victoria James or Sonya Weiss.


Shay Matthews moved to Boston for a fresh apartment, new job, new routine. After too many years being coddled by her overbearing older brothers, Shay’s ready for some freedom and maybe a nice, easygoing guy. She wasn’t expecting to literally run into the scowling, brooding, (and unfairly smoking hot) guy next door.

Fresh off a haunting undercover assignment, detective Wyatt Daniels is jaded about life, relationships, and especially happily-ever- after. But there’s something about the independent and beautiful Shay that makes him want to dig deeper. Or stay away, which is definitely the smarter option of the two.

But the more Shay tries to convince herself that her sweet building manager, Brady, is the guy for her, the more Mr. Completely Wrong-for- Her Wyatt invades her mind and her heart.

A Better Man, Sunshine Creek Vineyard Book One
Perfect For You
Sunshine Creek Vineyard #2
By: Candis Terry
Releasing February 28, 2017
Avon Books
In Perfect for You (Sunshine Creek Vineyard #2) by Candis Terry, Brooke Hastings wants her boss Declan Kincade in the best of ways, but it seems he'd rather keep their relationship strictly business. However, when he finds himself needing to return home to help his brothers, Brooke decides to invite herself along, if only to shake up her driven, predictable boss's life. But what starts off as a simple road trip turns into so much more. Can Brooke show Declan what he's missing, or will she walk away from the one man that's perfect for her? 

What a wonderfully written, fast-paced, captivating read Ms. Terry has penned in this story, encompassing the forbidden relationship trope, well-written dialogue, a heroine that isn't afraid to go after what she wants and a hero that needs to decide what he wants before he loses the woman he's come to immensely care for. The way this story started introduced me -- as a reader -- to the hero superbly. He's a workaholic that faced a tough challenge growing up, and which made him feel like the odd man out when it came to his brothers, but he's more than proven how he's risen above it all by being so successful. 

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, the twist concerning Declan's family and the growing relationship between this couple. In the beginning, I was a little put off by how forward the heroine was in her pursuit of the hero to get him to loosen up and see her as more than his employee. Yet, the further into this story I got, I really started to enjoy her point-of-view. Her back story is a pretty emotional one, and it was no wonder she went to great lengths to escape her situation after what happened to her sister and it's understandable why she wears a bracelet with the word Fearless on it.  

Both the main characters were highly entertaining because of their growing relationship and the way they interacted with the secondary characters. Declan has always felt apart from his family due to his learning disability, and I liked how determined he was to be close with his family again. The way they tease each other had me laughing, especially with a certain brother's antics in trying to make Declan jealous enough, so he'd realize how silly he was being by not pursuing something with the heroine when it was palpable how much he liked her. 

Furthermore, I liked how Brooke managed to get him to have some fun. She can be quite persuasive, and I enjoyed that she didn't give up on Declan, until the moment when it seemed impossible for her to get him to see that they're perfect for each other. Why did he keep walking away at the moments when everything between them felt so right? While Brooke, she's been through so much in her life and I could understand why she would want to live life to the fullest. The way she goes after what she wants and her determination to conquer the bucket list she's had for years made her admirable. Also, she's kind, caring and I liked how she was willing to help Declan's family with her ideas for the Vineyard. 

Overall, Ms. Terry has penned a delightful read in this book, which had the perfect blend of intense, emotional and teasing dialogue between the hero and heroine, as well as between the main and secondary characters. The growing relationship between Declan and Brooke had me hooked, because he needs her just as much as she needs him. Because although Brooke had a good family in her foster family, she still wants a family of her own. Is Declan the right man to fulfill her number one item on her bucket list? But what I liked most was the ending, although I could sympathize with the entire Kincade family because of a huge family secret. However, in saying that, I liked how Declan made things right between him and Brooke. Certainly, he was determined to make sure she crossed some items of her bucket list. I would recommend Perfect for You by Candis Terry, if you enjoy the forbidden relationship trope or books by authors Erin Nicholas, Samantha Chase, Melanie Shawn or Jennifer Bernard. 


Meet the Kincade brothers: they’ll do what it takes to protect their legacy--but what happens when love gets in the way?
Declan Kincade has spent so much time chasing success he’s almost forgotten how to just live. Lately though, his all-business routine has been thrown into disarray. Brooke Hastings is the best employee Dec’s ever had: polished, capable, and intelligent. After four years, he’s just realized that she’s also smoking hot. But their working relationship is too valuable to stake on a fling, no matter how mind-bendingly pleasurable it promises to be.

What’s worse than never meeting the right man? Finding him, and then working side-by-side every day while he remains absolutely blind to your existence. That is, until one temptation-packed road-trip changes everything. Teaching her gorgeous, driven boss how to cut loose and have fun is the toughest challenge Brooke’s ever faced. But it’s one that could give both of them exactly what they need, if Dec will take a chance on a perfect—and perfectly unexpected—love.

The sunlight caught like spun gold in the wavy strands of her hair. He liked that her face was makeup free, but mostly he liked that she didn’t need a mask to feel confident. Not that he ever planned to date Brooke, but he’d dated a lot of women who’d refused to leave the house until their makeup had been perfectly applied and every hair was in place.
In his mind, all that preparation took away an opportunity for spontaneity. With his busy schedule, sometimes that’s all he could manage—a last minute invite. Brooke had so much sexy going on she didn’t need all that stuff. And today she’d pretty much proved that she was game for the whole spur-of-the-moment thing. Impressive.
“How many business lunches and dinners have I sat through with you, Mr. Kincade?”
He shrugged. “Too many to count.”
“Bingo.” She pointed. “And do you know what you order almost each and every time?”
“Seared ahi.”
“And the problem with that is?”
“I like ahi.”
“Good for you. But why not expand your horizons? Eating the same old same old every day is like having missionary sex every time the mood strikes.”
And why did she need to bring that up? Because his imagination definitely didn’t need a push in that direction.
“Shake things up.” She waved her hands upward like she was about to take flight. “Be daring. Live a little.”
Damn she was animated. How the hell did someone get like that?
“I’m happy with things the way they are.”
“Are you really?” As she leaned into the table, the unyielding fabric of that tight white tank top across her breasts dominated his attention.
He didn’t respond.
He was too . . . distracted.
“You know what they say; all work and no play . . .” she said with a shrug, leaving the remainder of that statement hanging like a noose.
“So you’re saying that eating fish tacos is suddenly going to shake things up in my life?”
“Breaking your same old song and dance routine will. After you’ve opened up the door, anything can happen. Aren’t you the least bit curious?”
The server interrupted them to deliver a large plate of steaming soft tacos, bowls of salsa and sour cream, and two giant froufrou drinks with slices of pineapple and maraschino cherries speared by pink umbrellas.
Oh hell no.
He was not going to drink something that would immediately revoke his man card. But when Brooke plucked the cherry from her glass, dangled it in the air, and captured it with her tongue, he had second thoughts. By the time she settled the bright pink straw between the soft cushion of her lips and sucked the orange frothy drink into her mouth, he figured he’d be game for just about any damn thing. As long as he could watch her do that all day long.

Best-selling and award winning author Candis Terry entertains readers with contemporary romance the Library Journal Reviews calls uniquely satisfying. Both her Sugar Shack and Sweet, Texas series deliver witty and emotional stories about how love, family, and a small town community defines the characters’ lives. Born and raised near the sunny beaches of Southern California, Candis now makes her home on an Idaho farm. She’s experienced life in such diverse ways as working in a Hollywood recording studio to chasing down wayward steers and loves to escape to the breathtaking Idaho forests to energize her imagination.

The All-Star Antes Up
Wager of Hearts #2
By: Nancy Herkness
Released May 31st, 2016
Montlake Romance
In The All-Star Antes Up (Wager of Hearts #2) by Nancy Herkness, it's always been said that opposites attract, and that's certainly the case the moment Luke Archer and Miranda Tate meet. However, Luke is a man that doesn't do commitment, and Miranda doesn't have time for a man in her life. Not when she works as hard as she does to help out her brother. However, the more time Luke and Miranda spend together, the more Luke begins to realize that he doesn't want to keep having meaningless sex with those women that only want him because he's the quarterback for the New York Empire. Can he convince Miranda to give him a chance at forever love? 
Although I haven't read the first book of this series, this story can easily be read as a stand-alone. The prologue opens this story brilliantly with the men Luke makes a wager with. Will he succeed in finding the one woman that will get him to settle down? However, it was from the moment when the hero and heroine met where this story really drew me in. Luke's brother is a jerk and I felt sorry for the hero in having to deal with him and the fact that he put Miranda into a difficult situation with her boss who she clearly doesn't like. It made for interesting reading. Would Luke be able to smooth things over for Miranda?

Both the main characters entertained me from start to finish with their back stories, their growing relationship and the obstacles these two face on their journey to happy ever after, which there are a lot. Such as Miranda misjudging Luke, their fear of relationships, and a spiteful man that loves to throw the weight of his power as boss around. As for the heroine, she's strong, brave, hard-working and I loved that she would do anything for her family. But what I liked most of all about the heroine was how much of a challenge she provided the hero. He's not used to women that don't give him the time of day and I liked that Luke had to work hard to get her attention. Because both deserved to be happy, and there is a lot of chemistry between them that deserves to be explored, and once it is, spills over onto the pages in hot, nicely-detailed sex scenes that do this couple's strong chemistry justice.

While the hero, he has big decisions to make throughout this story concerning his career, Miranda and his brother. How can he stop his brother from making the biggest mistake of his life? What will he do about his brother when it comes to the trouble he causes for Miranda? How can he convince Miranda to give him a chance? And if she does, can he find a way to make her happy or will his career get in the way? Will he help Miranda when it comes to her job? Moreover, Luke is kind and caring and I liked how he helps the heroine through a tough moment in her life and makes it easier for her to deal with what's happening with her family.  

Overall, Ms. Herkness has penned a really good read in this book, which has me looking forward to the next book of this series to discover more about secondary character, Gavin Miller. The way this story ended proved that Luke wouldn't give up on winning Miranda back, even if it meant declaring his love with a huge romantic gesture; a gesture that gridiron fans across the country witness. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up wonderfully, because it shows how far Luke has come and that anything is possible, especially when he was so against relationships. I would recommend The All-Star Antes Up by Nancy Herkness, if you enjoy the opposites attract trope.



“No strings, no rings.” That’s Luke Archer’s motto. As the champion quarterback for the New York Empire—not to mention a self-made billionaire—Luke has given up on serious relationships. Women only want him for one thing: the thrill of being with a superstar. And he likes it that way too. But when his best friend announces he’s retiring from football to spend time with his wife and kids, Luke feels like he’s missing out on something much bigger than his career.
The assistant concierge in Luke’s luxury high-rise, Miranda Tate fled her family’s dairy farm to come to the bright lights of New York City. She works hard to move up and sends her spare earnings home to her brother. When she and Luke meet, there’s an instant sexual attraction which turns steamy quickly, but they’re in completely different leagues. Could Miranda be just the woman Luke needs to win the most important game of his life?

The Game Changer
Knights of Passion #3
By: Megan Ryder
Releasing February 23rd, 2017
Tule Publishing
In The Game Changer (Knights of Passion #3) by Megan Ryder, Dylan Prosser's career as catcher for the Knights baseball team doesn't leave him much time to do anything else. Clearly, he doesn't have time to care for a dog, so how is it that animal lover Savannah Monroe manages to convince him to take the one he was planning to leave at the local animal shelter home with him. Knowing he needs help to take care of his new dog, Savannah agrees to lend him a hand. However, the more time Dylan spends with Savannah, the more he finds himself unable to resist her. The question is -- will Savannah's desire to achieve her dream when it comes to rescuing animals put their growing relationship at risk, or will Dylan realize that Savannah isn't like the other people in his life that like to take advantage of who he is and what he can do for them?
Ms. Ryder has really outdone herself when it comes to this book, and I've got to say that -- in my opinion -- it's the best in the series yet. Right from the beginning, this story was riveting, fast-paced and a story I finished in record time because of its entertaining plot, well-written dialogue and amazing characters that had so much chemistry between them, which eventually spilled over onto the pages in nicely-detailed and completely hot sex scenes that did justice to this couple's intense chemistry.
The way this story started with Dylan dealing with his sister and her excuses had me feeling sorry for him. They were once very close, and now she's out of control in trying to keep her career going. Why does she continue to let their mother control her life? However, it was the moment that the hero and heroine met where things really got interesting. Savannah totally loses it and I could understand why because she's so passionate about saving animals, as animals are easier to deal with than people and can't hurt her.
As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories and their reasons for keeping most people at a distance. Savannah was hurt by her previous relationship and craves stability because of the way she grew up. Can Dylan offer her that when he's constantly travelling to play baseball? Can he prove to her that not all men are like her ex? That there are people that think what she does to rescue animals is admirable, which is proven by all Dylan does for her when it comes to her dream of expanding her rescue operations.  
Both the main characters were compelling, and I couldn't get enough of them, especially Dylan. He doesn't have it easy with his family, just like Savannah doesn't have it easy with hers. Both have sisters that need them, and I liked how the secondary characters helped the main ones realize that they should give the other a chance, no matter what causes the snags in their growing relationship. Because it's palpable to everyone that Savannah is good for Dylan and vice versa.
While Savannah, she's strong, brave, independent and isn't afraid to speak her mind when it comes to something she's passionate about. The way she spoke to Dylan when they first met had me surprised at her outburst, as I wasn't expecting her to lose it the way she did. Also, I liked how kind, caring and passionate she was about rescuing every dog that came her way, even though there were moments that made me tear up, as the heroine knew it was impossible to save them all. 
Overall, Ms Ryder has penned an incredible read in this book, which has me looking forward to more of this series, because of the way things turned out for various secondary characters including a broken relationship and an injury to one of Dylan's teammates. As for the ending, it was perfect, as Dylan proved to Savannah how much he loved her. Certainly, he found a way to win her back by doing what he does in both the last chapter and the epilogue. Especially since he over-reacted to what he thinks she did to cause them to go their separate ways at the critical moment in the story. I would recommend The Game Changer by Megan Ryder, if you enjoy sports romances or books by authors Carly Phillips, Katie Rose or Lisa B. Kamps.
After the ultimate abandonment by her family, Savannah Monroe channels her savior-complex tendencies into helping animals because they can't hurt her like people can. Life at the animal rescue shelter has always provided the security and personal reward that she needs to be happy while protecting her heart.

All-star catcher Dylan Prosser always has his head in the game. Accustomed to keeping opponents from stealing bases, Dylan is completely focused on getting the team to the playoffs no matter what the cost. He definitely doesn’t expect anyone to steal his heart and turn his life upside down–least of all, a stray dog and a beautiful girl.

But as she works with Sadie, Savannah soon realizes that his dog isn’t the only one who needs saving…

Sprinkled with Love
Bachelor Bake-Off #3
By: Jennifer Faye
Releasing February 21, 2017
Tule Publishing
In Sprinkled with Love (Bachelor Bake-Off #3) by Jennifer Faye, after an accident puts Avery Wainwright out of action for four to six weeks, he finds himself back in Marietta and entered in the town's Bachelor Bake-off by his sister. Not knowing a thing about baking, he turns to the one person he knows he can always rely on, Jillian Parker. Will Avery finally realize that Jillian is the one person he can't live without, or will history repeat itself?

This is the second book I've read by Ms. Faye, and just like the first book, I absolutely loved it. The way this story started had me rolling my eyes at Jillian's mom because of how she treats her cat. Seriously, it was like she thought of the pet as a second child and I could understand why the heroine reacts the way she does towards her mother. Not only because of the cat but because of what her mother has to say about her non-existent dating life since calling things off with her boyfriend. However, what I liked most about the beginning was how the hero and heroine came face-to-face for the first time in this story. Let's just say, luckily, Avery is a good driver.

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, the history between these two that left Jillian a bit heart-broken because it seemed Avery didn't return her feelings in the past, and everything these two go through on their journey to happy ever after. Including a mother's disapproval of Jillian getting close with Avery again; whether the hero can come up with the money to buy the ranch he wants; an ex-boyfriend that wants the heroine back for reasons I desperately wanted to know; surviving the wedding where Jillian is likely to be ganged up on by her family; and the decision Avery faces on whether he'll stay in Marietta or return to his rodeo career. However, there were some light-hearted moments that had me smiling, because once Avery commits to the bake-off, he wants to do his best. 

Both the main characters entertained me from start to finish with their back stories and their growing relationship. Jillian is spirited, independent and I could understand why she was so hesitant to give Avery a chance. First, she has an ex-boyfriend she needs to deal with and then because of what happened in the past between her and Avery, she's worried it'll happen all over again. His rejection really hurt her in the past. Moreover, I liked how she was willing to help Avery with learning how to bake. He needs her, as it's palpable he doesn't know the first thing about baking.

While Avery, I felt sorry for him because of the guilt he's felt over what happened to his parents. He needed to realize that what happened wasn't his fault, if he was ever to be truly happy. Then there's the big decisions he has to make. Will he leave Marietta and return to the rodeo circuit? Will he be able to buy the ranch he wants? Will he take a chance with Jillian? His point-of-view really drew me in because of the choices he did end up making.

Overall, Ms. Faye has penned a fantastic read in this book, encompassing two wonderful characters that have an undeniable chemistry, a fast-paced plot that I couldn't get enough of and secondary characters that I enjoyed because of their need to match-make, especially Jillian's best friend. The way this story ended had me cheering for this couple's happy ever after, because of the decision Avery made about whether he'd leave Marietta or stay. Could he give up Jillian just because he was too stubborn to do what his sister wanted him to do? I would recommend Sprinkled with Love by Jennifer Faye, if you enjoy the matchmaker trope or books by authors Shirley Jump, Melissa McClone and Kate Hardy.


What does one do with a matchmaking cat named Romeo?
Spirited and beautiful, Jillian Parker is one of Marietta’s newest business owners. Still, her mother worries about Jillian’s bare ring finger. So in order to give her mother something else to fuss over, Jillian adopts a cat named Romeo. He turns out to be anything but a docile lap cat.
One snowy night, Romeo makes a break for it. With Jillian right on his heels, they have a near miss with a passing pickup driven by Avery Wainwright, one of Jillian’s closest friends. A rodeo accident has the sexy cowboy returning home to recuperate, and he’s not happy about it.
So when Avery finds himself lassoed into the Bachelor Bake-Off, he turns to the one person who has always helped him out—Jillian. But will teaching him to take chances outside of the show ring have them both discovering that their feelings for each other run much deeper than they ever imagined?

They climbed in the sleigh and then Avery covered Jillian with a heavy lap blanket. “Are you ready?”
She nodded, clutching the thermos. “I am now.”
And then they were off, gliding over the snow. The snow muffled the sounds. And though the moon was hidden behind the clouds, it was still bright out. As they made their way through the field, Avery glanced over at Jillian. She was nestled beneath the plaid blanket and still clutching the thermos. She looked stunning. He should have brought her out here a long time ago.
“What are you smiling about?”
Jillian’s voice drew him from his thoughts. “Who’s smiling?”
“You are and you know it. So what’s up?”
“Nothing. I’m just enjoying the evening.” It was so much more than that, but he really didn’t want to risk ruining this moment. He’d worked so hard to pull it together. He wanted to savor their time together.
For a while they glided along in silence. He had a particular destination in mind. It didn’t have a name. It was just a spot where you could see for miles. And at night, it was like visiting a planetarium with all of the stars twinkling overhead.
“Are you warm enough?” he asked.
She nodded from inside her big, fuzzy hood. “I’m perfect. This is amazing. Do you take the sleigh out very often?”
He shook his head. “This is my first time. I usually come out here on horseback.” He slowed the horse to a stop before turning to Jillian. “I wanted to do something special for you. A way to thank you. You’ve always been there for me and my family, whether it was helping me with the Bake-Off or being the best nanny in the whole world.”
“You…you really think that?”
He’d obviously done a lousy job of communicating his thoughts in the past. He would have to do better going forward.
“I’m sorry I didn’t make that clear before.” He stared into her eyes. “I really appreciate everything you’ve done for me and my family.”
His gaze dipped to her lips. They were shiny and full. And he was overwhelmed with the desire to kiss her again. So what was holding him back?
They were all alone on this snowy evening. And as he’d come to discover while he was planning this evening, it was a very romantic setting. If he were ever to have a chance with her, it would start beneath the starlit sky. But should he risk it? Should he put himself out there again?
It wasn’t like he was asking her to marry him. It was a kiss—a simple, no-strings-attached kiss. It was a starting point.
He rested his arm over the back of the sleigh. His heart started to pound hard in his chest. He’d kissed a number of girls over the years on the rodeo circuit and he’d never put this much thought into it. But none of them had meant as much to him as Jillian. He leaned toward her.
Suddenly Jillian raised the thermos between them. “Hot chocolate?”
He settled back in his seat. Had he read the signs wrong? Was he that rusty where women were concerned?
