TO HOLD AND TO LOVE and TO HOLD AND TO HEAL by Naomi Lecroy

  Description: TO HOLD AND TO HEAL: Nice is at her wit’s end, struggling to keep her alcoholic father’s bar and grill open after the death of her brother, dealing with flaky employees, and just about working herself to death. She more than needs some sexual diversion, so when a sexy vet with a limp offers her a one night stand, she takes him up on it–only to have him walk through the bar’s door the next day. As it turns out, he was one of her dead brother’s best friend’s. He promised her brother he’d take care of her, and he’s not going home until he does. TO HOLD AND TO LOVE: When Alyssa starts writing a Navy Seal in a pen pal program, she has no idea that their letters back and forth will eventually ignite sparks...

BEAST by Pepper Pace

BEAST by Pepper Pace

Description: When plus-size beauty, Ashleigh, meets Chris, a “beast” of a marine with a face disfigured from a cleft palate at the gym, sparks fly. But can she overcome her baggage and make an HEA happen with the best man she’s ever had the honor of dating? BEAST quite deservedly made it to the semi-final rounds of this year’s Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. The Good: I’m so late on this, that I doubt anyone who reads this review hasn’t actually already read the book yet. But I’m going to just go ahead and add to the gush fest. This book is sooooooo good. I love that the heroine is plus-sized and struggles with both self-esteem issues and Type 2 diabetes. Ashleigh is incredibly relatable and I could not recommend...

HIS ONE AND ONLY is here!

HIS ONE AND ONLY is here!

If you haven’t already picked up my latest book HIS ONE AND ONLY, please do me the favor of doing so. Here’s the description: The sixth smoking hot interracial romance in the 50 Loving States series! Fifteen years ago, Josie Witherspoon vowed to leave Alabama and never, ever think of Beau Prescott, the rich high school quarterback who broke her heart, again. Well… Life didn’t quite work out that way. One terrible failed marriage later, and she’s right back in Alabama, now working as a housekeeper for Beau Prescott after the pro quarterback is injured in a life-altering accident. The plan is to keep her head down, do her job, and collect her paycheck. But then Beau has to go and make her a rather indecent proposal… Two damaged...

SPECIAL KIND OF WOMAN by Jamallah Bergman

Note of apology: I haven’t not been posting as much for happy reasons. Life has been a little too bountiful as of late, and I’ve been struggling to keep up. I’m hoping to have a handle on all my blessings soon–especially since they’re keeping me from reading as much as I’d like. Boo-hoo-hoo! Description: Collin Noonan is handsome, rich, and the youngest executive at his company. He’s also an asshole, and is only flirting with plain jane mailroom clerk, Regina Talbot, in order to win a game — basically which executive can bring the ugliest date to their annual “pig party.” But then he unexpectedly starts developing feelings for Regina. Will their romance be ruined when she finds out about the real impetus...

CARNAL KNOWLEDGE by Celeste Anwar

CARNAL KNOWLEDGE by Celeste Anwar

Description: When sassy Kaeli collides with Cajun Lycan, Navarre Lyssandro, it’s chemistry at first sight. If they can survive the vampires who are out to get Navarre, they just might make it work. The Good: Really good action scenes. Kaeli was very sassy and Navarre was very sexy with clever claws that extended (kind of like Wolverine’s). Also, gotta love a Cajun accent. The Bad: Though I liked the characters, there was no time to get to know or care about them. And though the story has really good bones, it was clumsily executed. It felt like getting an outline as opposed to a fully fleshed out short. Also, see the Editing section. The Naughty: Steamy. Explicit language. Editing issues: Weird indents in places. Incorrect capitalization in places....
