Fighting For What's His

FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS—the second standalone title in New York Times bestselling author Laura Kaye’s Warrior Fight Club series! FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS is now available! Grab your copy and join the Warrior Fight Club world today!

 

About FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS (Warrior Fight Club #2, 9/7/18):

This fight club has one rule: you must be a veteran…

Resisting her only makes him want her more...

Private investigator Billy Parrish is good at three things—fighting, investigating, and sex. MMA training with the other vets in the Warrior Fight Club keeps his war-borne demons at bay—mostly, and one night stands ensure no one gets too close. But then his best friend from the Army Rangers calls in a favor.

Shayna Curtis is new to town, fresh out of grad school, and full of hope for the future. With a new job starting in a month, she’s grateful when her brother arranges a place for her to stay while she apartment hunts. But she never expected her roommate to be so brooding. Or so sexy.

Billy can’t wait for Shay to leave—because the longer she’s there, the more he wants her in his bed. To stay. He can’t have her—that much he knows. But when fight club stops taking off the edge, Billy lets down his guard…and starts fighting for what’s his.

My review: Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Billy definitely had some issues, but not nearly as bad as Noah, who we met in the first book of this series. Billy had his stuff together pretty well considering all he went through. There were a couple of times that I wanted to yell at him for being a jerk, but the frustration with him didn't last long. Shayna was a fun counterpart for him. She was outgoing, brave, and new to town. Shayna's crush from the few times she met Billy definitely expanded into love. They both had survivors guilt from situations they couldn't control and they were able to help the other one heal. This book was a great read and one I highly recommend. I will definitely continue to read this series and anything I can find from Laura Kayne.

“The always amazing Kaye is kicking off a terrific new contemporary romance series that centers around a wounded warrior’s fight club. Kaye does a beautiful job exploring the fallout from war and PTSD as various characters struggle to cope in their own ways. The love story between Noah Cortez and his childhood friend Kristina Moore is both compelling and touching, for the obstacles in their way loom large. A truly memorable read!” ~ RT Book Reviews

Synopsis:

Love at first sight may not survive a second glance… Love at first sight is a silly myth in the opinion of Lady Hazel Darling. Yet when she meets Garrett, Earl of Bainbridge, he’s so unlike any other gentleman she’s ever known, she can’t deny her curiosity. There is more to him than his reserved exterior, and she wants to be the one to discover what lies beneath his cool facade. Garrett enjoys Society from a distance, but when introduced to Lady Hazel, he develops a taste for conversation and dancing. As long as he’s dancing only with her. An orphan raised by his only aunt, Garrett struggles to relate to his peers. Hazel is the first woman he’s felt a connection to deeper than mere attraction. His lonely heart calls for her like no other. Against his aunt’s wishes, he proposes to Hazel. But once Hazel arrives at Bainbridge Estate, trouble begins. Despite his enormous responsibilities around the estate, Garrett shirks his duties to spend more time with her. But the closer she and Garrett become, the more his aunt seeks to sabotage them. Their marriage seems doomed before it even truly begins. Hazel and Garrett must fight to turn their spark of attraction into an inferno of love…or else abandon the fantasy of happiness they once both shared.

Add JUST ONE KISS to Goodreads

My review: This book was different from the previous two in this series. Instead of the courtship then wedding happening, this book had a wedding almost immediately and followed Hazel and Garrett as they adjusted to martial life with Garrett's overbearing aunt. I felt for Hazel as she dealt with the despicable woman and had to fight for her place. When she finally had enough, I completely understood the steps she took. Garrett was portrayed in a very realistic way and handled the two feuding woman as I'd imagine many would, asking his wife to give it more time. When he finally was able to see the light, he got one heck of a wake up call. I devoured this book in one sitting and definitely enjoyed it. Just like the other books in this series, I highly recommend this story.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

  Dayna Quince was only fourteen when she developed a serious addiction to romance novels. What began as an innocent desire to read became an all-out obsession with the romance genre. She gave book reports on romance novels, got in trouble for reading during lectures, and would rather spend her time reading than attending high school parties. After all, high school boys could not compete with the likes of Stephanie Laurens Devil Cynster. After getting her first job, her addiction only got worse. She now had her own money to spend and a car to get to Barnes and Noble as frequently as she wanted. She managed to maintain a somewhat normal life, marrying her high school boyfriend who was aware he was competing with fictional men for her attention. Dayna soon began writing her own romance novels, inspired by her love for all things romance. Dayna and her husband live in Southern California with their two children and three fur babies. Dayna is happiest at home where she can be with her family and write to her heart’s content.

Synopsis:

The viscount’s plan to kiss and tell may spell his ruin… From the moment Lady Anabelle Darling meets Viscount Draven, she knows there’s something dangerous about him. Cold, arrogant and callous, he enjoys playing the villain with a touch of cutting wit. But when she finds herself unexpectedly alone with him, the danger only grows. He says things that make her heart skip and her breathing hitch. Determined to keep her distance, she plans to find a respectable husband. Draven offers nothing but sinful dalliance and forbidden pleasure. Draven relishes the role of scoundrel. This is never more apparent than when he spreads a rumor that he and Lady Anabelle shared a kiss—or at least that’s what he tells her. She’s lovely when she’s furious, and he can’t resist the temptation of luring her into his game--consequences be damned. Yet a single kiss wields the power to change everything between them and turn Draven’s carefully crafted plan inside out.  

Add BELLE OF THE BALL to Goodreads

My review: I think this book was better than the first. Annabelle and Draven had quite the love/hate relationship. Their chemistry was off the charts, but they were looking for different things from life. Annabelle was determined to find a love match and Draven did not want to be tied down at all. I found it amusing how Annabelle went about finding her match, while still being drawn to Draven. Once Draven realized what he could lose if Annabelle fell for someone else, his determination to win her affections was admirable. He really ended up being a great guy for her. This story was a very good one and I highly recommend it.

That smoking hot one-night stand with a former rock star?

Turns out he's my son's new music teacher. Oops.

But I didn't know that the night I met Campbell. All I knew was he played my body the same way he played a guitar — like he owned it.

My libido is still high-fiving me after being self-served for too many years, and we’re both ready for another night or two of fun, especially since we don’t just have chemistry in bed — we connect over everything.

That is, until I learn he’s the man who’ll be coming to my house twice a week to teach my son — the best music lessons money can buy.

Time to turn down the volume on our shenanigans. Only that’s easier said than done.

***

I can rock a guitar solo in front of thousands, I can write chart-topping tunes, and I can absolutely stop thinking about my student’s mother naked.

After all, I’m a single parent too, and I know what it’s like to put your kid first. That’s what I do every damn day.

Trouble is, now that I’ve had Mackenzie, it’s hard — and I do mean hard — to stop wanting her. Harder too when I get to know her, and learn she’s an awesome mom, a great friend, and, oh yeah, she happens to get along perfectly with my daughter.

All we have to do is set some rules. No dating, no nookie when the kids are around, and no one gets hurt.

It’s all working out beautifully. Until we start breaking the rules, one by one.

Making music with her in the bedroom is easy. But will we be more than just a real good time when the music stops?

Excerpt: Campbell
She nibbles on the corner of her lips. “My friend Roxy thinks I should—”
“—let yourself have a good time for one more night?”
“How did you know?”
“She seemed like a good wingwoman.” I reach for a strand of her hair, running my finger across the soft locks, cataloging her reaction. “Want to know what I’m thinking?”
She nods.
I flash her a wicked grin. “I’m wondering if you want to be kissed by someone who’s been wanting to kiss you all night long.”
A flash of hesitation crosses her face, then she raises her eyes as if she’s thinking.
“I do,” she whispers, and the few seconds of reticence make her answer even sweeter.
I thread a hand through her hair. I’m going to take my time working up to a kiss, to make sure she wants it desperately. “I’ve been thinking about running my hands through this hair.”
“You have nice fingers…”
“Were you watching my hands when I was on stage?”
Her voice is soft and feathery, a quiet little confession. “Yes. I like the way you play.”
“What did you like about it?” I curl my hand tighter around her head. I swear, heat is radiating off her body, and it’s so damn enticing. “Did it make you think of anything?”
She nibbles on the corner of her lips. “Made me thing about how you might play…me.”
A groan works its way up my chest. She is an alluring mix of daring lioness and clumsy puppy. I yank her flush to me, bringing her mouth mere inches away from mine. “I’d like to play your body like a guitar. I’d like to make you sing, make you cry out in pleasure.” I run both hands through her soft hair, tugging her head back.
She gasps, and that’s my cue to lick a path up her neck, where I nibble on her jaw till she’s squirming against me. “Did you think about how I might kiss you when you watched me play?”
A sexy little sigh seems to escape her lips, followed by a yes.
“I noticed you the other week. At your booth, doing your quiz. Couldn’t stop looking at you. You were so sexy and adorable, and now you’re so damn close to me all I want is to turn you on.”
She parts her lips, and there’s no more need to tell her what I want to do. It’s time to show her.

About WHISKEY SECRETS (Whiskey and Lies #1)

Sparks fly between a former cop-turned-bartender and his new innkeeper in the first installment of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.
Dare Collins is a man who knows his whiskey and women—or at least that’s what he tells himself. When his family decides to hire on a new innkeeper for the inn above his bar and restaurant, he’s more than reluctant. Especially when he meets the new hire. But he’ll soon find that he has no choice but to work with this city girl and accept her new ideas and the burning attraction between them.
Kenzie Owens left her old life and an abusive relationship behind her—or so she thought. She figures she’ll be safe in Whiskey, Pennsylvania but after one look at her new boss, Dare Collins, she might still be in danger, or at least her heart. And when her past catches up with her despite her attempts to avoid it, it’s more than her heart on the line. This time, it might mean her life.

Get a sneak peek of WHISKEY SECRETS:

Once again, Kenzie had no idea if she was making the smartest of moves, but she wasn’t about to back down now. Though it was September, the weather fluctuated between stifling humid and hot to downright chilly. Right now, it was a pleasant day where she didn’t feel like she was walking through a wall of humidity, nor did she need a jacket. Between that and the bright sun and tiny dots of clouds above her, it was a pretty nice afternoon. “This is the main drag for the town.” Dare gestured at the street. “It’s pretty much a straight line except for one part where it curves over the bridge. The creek below that only starts pumping real good after a storm or right when the run-off from the mountains begins to melt. Other than that, it’s a decent trickle that tourists like for selfies.” As Kenzie herself had taken a selfie in front of the creek for her personal album of memories, she ignored the humor in his voice at the comment. She’d told herself she would start taking more photos and enjoy where she was and who she was now that she was free of everything that had held her back for so long. “It’s a beautiful town,” she said simply, and she was being honest about that. Everyone took great care of their buildings and businesses. There were coffee shops, teahouses, bakeries, restaurants, antique shops, clothing stores, and a couple dozen other shops that catered to practically every need. Everything was unique and could only be found in Whiskey. And now, she was part of it. “It’s home.” Apparently, Dare wasn’t a man of many words today. They walked another block in easy silence, and Kenzie sighed. She hated feeling awkward. “So, have you always lived here?” He looked down at her and studied her face as they waited at the crosswalk. “No. I lived in Philly for a few years.” “Big city,” she said dryly then immediately regretted it. Weren’t they supposed to be friends now? Or at least friendly? He snorted before stuffing his hands into his pockets. She couldn’t help but notice the way his forearms tightened at the movement. She shouldn’t be noticing the man’s arms, damn it. Nor should she think forearms were sexy. She’d come to Whiskey for herself, and had sworn off men and relationships. That meant no more looking at Dare Collins’ arms and the way he filled out his jeans. “Sorry about that. Like I said, I had a rough night and took it out on you.” “You already apologized. Let’s get back to the bar. I know you have to work, and I have paperwork to go over.” His jaw tightened as he studied her. “Starting already?” She raised her chin and then cursed herself for doing so yet again in front of this man. He set her on edge, and she wasn’t sure if it was because they kept bumping heads or because she found him attractive when she didn’t want to. “I’m here to help your parents, Dare, and to do a job.” “I know you are.” He turned away from her, giving her his profile. “And I’m glad my parents are taking a step back to actually try and relax. I’m just not a fan of change. Hell, I hate it, and I hate surprises even more.” That, she could totally understand. “I hate surprises, too. As for change? Well, sometimes, change is good.” She was living proof of that, wasn’t she? “That’s true enough, but it doesn’t mean I’m quick to like it.” He stared at her, and she blinked at the intensity. There was something there, she thought, some heat she couldn’t quite name, and it worried her. Was he attracted to her? Or was that flare because she represented that change he wasn’t ready for? Either way, it didn’t matter; thinking too hard along those lines when it came to Dare wasn’t something she could do. “But I guess it doesn’t matter, does it?” Dare continued. “As for your new job? I’ll be around if you need help. I don’t know everything about the inn since I have my own two business to handle, but I can probably at least point you in the right direction. And if you’re looking for upgrades like you mentioned? Talk to Loch. I know he’s family, but he’s damn good at handyman work and carpentry when he puts his mind to it. He hasn’t done much on the inn since our parents weren’t ready to update yet, but Loch’s good at what he does.” Surprised, she found herself nodding. She’d already heard from her new employers about Loch and how he could help, and she was glad to know that the family stood together no matter what. “I’ll keep that in mind.” “You do that, Red.” She rolled her eyes. “My name’s Kenzie.” “I know. I like Red too, though. Plus, it’s fun to see you get all rattled when I call you that.” And she found this man attractive? She was seriously losing it. It must just be the nonexistent heat talking. Once she was fully immersed in her new job and life, she wouldn’t be thinking about Dare and those sexy forearms of his again. At least, she hoped.

I began this book feeling like it was in the middle of another one. I’m not sure if reading the previous books in this series would have helped. Once I got a little ways into the book I was able to piece things together. This couple didn’t have anything spectacular about them, even if the premise of their jobs was interesting. I found the heroine emasculating at times and the hero came off a bit weak. This story was okay, but I could take it or leave it. I’d give it 3.25 Stars. Not sure if I’ll be reading any more from this series.
