New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jennifer Probst sparks a blissful mind-body connection as her “sexy, satisfying” (Kirkus Reviews) new series continues! She’s an expert in helping others de-stress, but Arilyn Meadows is running on fumes. Along with her job counseling singles seeking soul mates at the Kinnections agency in Verily, New York, she’s a yoga teacher, animal shelter volunteer, anger management therapist, and helping hand to her beloved grandfather. No time to find Mr. Right—but after discovering her yogi boyfriend in a compromising asana, Arilyn would rather dog-sit for her honeymooning friend Kate than risk her heart on another downward dog. And when police officer Stone Petty—radiating masculinity and bad-boy attitude—is sent to her for mandatory lessons in cooling off when the job gets too hot, Arilyn vows to ignore his seductive glances and sexy grin. But there’s no halting their sizzling flirtation—a red-hot, high-speed chase that’s breaking all the limits.

A Lush Reunion

A Lush Reunion by Selena Laurence is an example of how first person present should work. Normally I am not a fan of first person, and hate first person present, but I enjoyed this book. I was able to predict this story line pretty easily, however it was still a good book. Colin and Marsha had a complicated past and with Colin's fame, it comes out in their tiny Texas town. They have a lot of hurt to work through, but they do eventually get their HEA. I am curious about the rest of Colin's band members, so I may have to look into Selena Laurence's other books. I give this book 4 stars and will probably read it again.


Ten years ago Lush bassist Colin Douglas met the love of his life. Then she broke his heart. Now, in a small Texas town, in the midst of the breakup of his band, Colin has found Marsha, and he has no idea what to do with her.

Marsha O’Neill hasn’t had it easy. Since losing Colin nothing's gone right for this east Texas waitress—except for Sean, her six-year-old son. She’s worked hard to give Sean what he needs—the best of her. Then a hot bass player walks into her bar and she knows the world isn’t done screwing with her yet.

What happens when life gives you a second chance? Can you learn to trust again, live again, love again? Colin and Marsha are about to find out that second chances don’t come easy.

Fall for Me

Fall for me is the first book in J.C. Emery's new Ladder Company series and I have to say I loved it. The story line was complex and real. Melanie and Jameson had a ton of obstacles in their way including Jameson's girlfriend. This book takes place over a large amount of time (think over a year) and I felt that helped make it seem more real. While the struggle was real I also wanted to scream at the characters when they were being stupid. I found myself becoming emotionally invested in this book. While the characters finally got their HEA, there is a secondary story line that is going to carry into the next book in this series. I give this book 4.5 stars and a must read.

Melanie Kincaid is a trust-fund baby with a knack for sassy comebacks and unnecessarily complicating her privileged life. So, of course she would have to fall in love with a man she can't have.
Jameson Hayes is a NYC firefighter for Manhattan’s oldest ladder company with big shoes to fill and a city to protect. He’s strong, sexy, and not looking for the complications Melanie brings. But he can't stay away from her either. The attraction between them is immediate and the pull between them is crazy powerful. But she's only home for the summer and long-distance relationships never work.
Unfortunately, Melanie’s beauty and smart mouth are a lethal combination and Jameson isn't the only Hayes who's interested. As if his brother isn't enough to compete with, now the city's most famous arsonist wants to claim her as his next prize. Jameson can't stand to watch Melanie get hurt and she can't seem to keep herself out of trouble.

Fall for Me is the first Ladder Company novel, a stand-alone companion series about New York's most elite firefighting family with hot alpha heroes, snarky heroines, and an arsonist hell-bent on destruction.

About the author:
As a child, JC was fascinated by things that went bump in the night. As they say, some things never change. Now, as an adult, she divides her time between the sexy law men, mythical creatures, and kick-ass heroines that live inside her head and pursuing her bachelor's degree in English. JC is a San Francisco Bay Area native, but has also called both Texas and Louisiana home. These days she rocks her flip flops year round in Northern California and can't imagine a climate more beautiful.

JC writes adult, new adult, and young adult fiction. She dabbles in many different genres including science fiction, horror, chick lit, and murder mysteries, yet she is most enthralled by supernatural stories-- and everything has at least a splash of romance.

Dare to Love Series: An Inconvenient Dare

I have to say, I picked up my ARC of An Inconvenient Dare with the intent of reading a chapter or two before going to bed. Well, a couple of hours later I'd finished the book and knew I'd be sleep deprived in the morning. The story between Vanessa and Enrique was fast paced and well written. I felt their chemistry come off the page. Bethany Lopez is an author I will be reading again and I recommend you read too. This book gets 4.5 stars from me.

Vanessa has been so busy working her way up the corporate ladder that she's forgotten all about sex over the past two years. When her best friend dares her to pick up a sexy stranger with panty-dropping dimples, she takes the dare and approaches Enrique. Sensing Vanessa's uncertainty, Enrique gives her full control in the bedroom…until he doesn't.

What started as an inconvenient dare turns into more than Vanessa ever expected, but when she learns the secret Enrique's been keeping, will she be able to forgive him, or will she forgo her chance at happiness?

Daring Ink

Avery Flynn has another hit on her hands. I love Carly Phillips Dare world and Avery has more than 1 book written as part of her Kindle Worlds series. Avery is a talented writer and this book is an excellent show case for those talents. Penny and Sawyer make a great couple and I love Penny's nickname for him. I found myself laughing out loud at times and I couldn't put this book down easily. I can't say enough good things about this book. It is one that I'll be reading again. It gets 5 stars from me along with a must read.

All tattoo shop owner Penny Dare wants is a good night sleep, but the activities of her oversexed neighbor can’t be blocked by even the best earphones. When her plans for creative revenge go fabulously right, the cops show up at her door…or at least one very hot, half-naked cop who just happens to be her ridiculously endowed neighbor—if the women’s panting praises are to be believed…

Former Miami Thunder running back Sawyer Dixon may have switched careers, but he’d always had a weakness for redheads. Despite all she’s heard through the shared wall between their bedrooms, he bets a former teammate that he can land a date with with his sexy neighbor. Helping her discover who is stealing her tattoo designs is the perfect way to get on her good side. However, as Sawyer gets to know Penny for more than just her jaw dropping curves, he realizes a single date may not be all he wants. But if she finds out the real reason he agreed to help her, all bets will be off…

Breathless in Love

Breathless in Love is the first book in the Maverick Billionaire series by Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully. Bella Andre is an auto buy for me, but I hadn't read anything by Jennifer Skully before. While I enjoyed this book, it didn't read quite as addicting as Bella Andre books have been for me in the past. Don't get me wrong, I still really liked this book, but some of the usual magic wasn't there. Will was the perfect guy, pushing Harper when she needed it, but also realizing when he screwed up and doing what he needed to make amends. Harper was overly cautious, but blossomed while with Will. Her life was focused solely on caring for her brother and Will helped her see that it was okay to do things for herself. This book gets 4 stars from me, and I'm looking forward to reading more from this writing duo.

Will Franconi has a dark past that he’s kept a closely guarded secret―very few people have ever heard his real story and he plans to keep it that way. After surviving a hellish childhood, he’s now living the dream life where everything he touches turns to gold. But something’s missing. He doesn’t quite know what until a simple letter from a teenage boy brings Harper Newman into his life. A woman who just might fill up the empty places inside him…if only he could ever be worthy of her love.

When a man has more money than he could possibly spend in five lifetimes, Harper has to ask herself what Will Franconi could possibly want from a woman like her? She’s learned the hard way that rich men always get what they want no matter the cost. If it was just herself she had to worry about, Harper would manage, but she’s guardian to her younger brother who depends on her for everything. After nearly losing his life in a car crash, she’s vowed never to let anyone hurt him ever again.

Still, sometimes Harper can’t help but long to change her story from one of an always-cautious woman to an adventurous tale of a heroine who’s wild and free…especially when Will’s kisses and caresses make her utterly breathless. And as he begins to reveal his story to her, she discovers that he’s so much more than just another wealthy, privileged man. He’s kind and giving, and he fills up all the spaces inside of her heart that have been empty for so long. Together, can they rewrite their stories into a happily-ever-after that neither of them had previously thought was possible?

Two Nights with His Bride

I've said it once and I'll say it again, I absolutely LOVE Kat Latham. Two nights with his bride was well written and engaging. I started it before bed with the intention of reading a couple of chapters before bed. Next thing I know a few hours have passed and I'm finishing the book. I admit, going into this story I had a very low opinion of Nancy Parsons because of the previous books in this series, but shortly into the book I understood her better and actually liked her. Wyatt was her match in every way and I enjoyed reading about them falling for each other. He was strong, sexy, and smart. I found myself falling for him right along with Nancy. I give this book 5 stars and recommend reading it, along with all of the other books by Kat Latham.


Wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta...

Soap opera star Nancy Parsons is madly in love with Hollywood’s favorite leading man, and they’re getting married on her parents’ stunning horse ranch just outside Marietta, Montana. Actors, athletes, and politicians will be there to watch Hollywood’s most extravagant couple say I do.

There’s just one problem. The bride’s childhood friend Wyatt Wilder knows Nancy’s making the biggest mistake of her life. Sure, Jared’s got looks, money, fame, and—it seems—Nancy’s heart. But when her bridesmaids hire him to lead them on a girls’-only adventure, Wyatt has two nights in the wilderness along the Yellowstone River to show her what a real man looks and acts like. A rugged, tough, loving man.

But will he be able to do it before she says “I do” to the wrong man?
