Lady Boss (Itty-Bitty Delights, Book 7) by Alex Grayson: Release Blitz + Review

Title: Lady Boss
Series: Itty-Bitty Delights, Book 7
Author: Alex Grayson
Genre: Small Town Boss/Employee Romance
Release Date: June 30, 2022
Review Source: Give Me Books Promotions

Second to my family, my career comes first. My job is my life, and that’s the way I like it.

But then I took on an intern.

A sexy intern who screws with my carefully structured life.

At every turn, he’s there, making his presence known. Not that he needs to. Since the moment he walked into my office, my thoughts have been consumed by him.

I’m tempted to take him up on his many offers of pleasure, but then I remember I’m twelve years older than him.

Oh, and he was also the boy I used to babysit when I was a teen.

The most I can ever be to him is his lady boss.

Or is it?

Lady Boss is a novella and can be read in 2 or 3 hours.

Lady Boss was one for the record books. As per usual, I was hooked because the writing was done so well. A May-December romance that is always an excellent sub-genre. Alex Grayson has the uncanny ability to turn any situation into one that you want to learn more about. You just have to know what happens in the end and why. In this particular instance, I needed to know what would prompt Kai to do what he did to Penelope. The betrayal and sheer nerve to act as though what he did was remotely okay had me yelling at my kindle and my husband looking at me as if I were crazy.

It all worked out in the end, but I’ll tell you what…I would have had Kai’s throat in my hands. I don’t know that there would be the ability of forgiveness from me.

I’m excited for the next installment in the Itty Bitty Delights series which is Lady Balls, coming July 21st!

First Comes Love by Nicole French: Release Blitz + Review

Release Date: June 23, 2022

Xavier Parker gets what he wants.

Richer than God. Hotter than fire. Colder than ice.
Father of my child.
And he has no idea.

As London’s top restauranteur, he has the golden touch, but he rules his world with an iron fist.
Now he’s back in New York with two objectives:
Open the newest hotspot in the city.
And win back my heart, five years after he broke it.

I’d run in the opposite direction, but it’s been so long...
And Xavier knows my recipe.
Passion. Pleasure. Just the right kind of pain.

Imagine his surprise when a little girl opens my door instead of me.
A stubborn, button-nosed four-year-old whose shiny black hair and bright blue eyes look just like his.
There’s a secret in this house, and he won’t stop until he figures it out.

Because Xavier Parker gets what he wants.

And now that includes his daughter.

Ummmmmm first of all no one told me this book ended on a cliff hanger….

Anyway- we meet Ces and Xavi. Two people from two totally different worlds. Almost literally.
He’s from across the pond and she’s so New York!! The Bronx to be exact.

Ces, she’s a Puerto Rican Italian woman with lots of fiery relatives, but she’s gentle and kind.
She met Xavi while he was on holiday here “looking for work”. They had a steamy torrid affair that left her with more responsibility and it ended with her broken heart.

Xavi knows loss like an old friend. He’s lost so much that he doesn’t believe in love or happily ever after. Until he meets Ces. He’s a half Japanese and English man, who is a world-renowned chef and business owner.

After reconnecting and sharing a bond that changes both of their lives he realizes that he not only believes in love but wants happily ever with her and his future.

This is a good book, an excellent storyline and the characters were enjoyable. I love the fact that there were lots of strong heritages and ethnicities mentioned in the book. That made it more enjoyable.

The only thing that bothered me in this book is how a woman from the Bronx living in a storage space of her brother's house can be upset that the man she loves is rich. I have never understood when the women get upset at that. I understand feeling like you don’t belong in their world, but being upset about it?? Feeling like they lied to you?? That’s a little too much for me. Luckily it doesn’t drag on, so it was pretty easy to roll my eyes and move on.

I also wish there were more smexy times in the book. We hear him being touted up as this long-dong King Kong- but we don’t get to experience it much.

Other than that it was great.

Jock Wanted: A Fake Relationship Hockey Romance (Rookie Rebels, Book 7) by Kate Meader: Release Blitz + Review

Title: Jock Wanted:
A Fake Relationship Hockey Romance
Series: Rookie Rebels, Book 7
Author: Kate Meader
Genre: Adult Sports Romance
Release Date: June 14, 2022

She has her heart set on a hockey player. Any hockey player.

When the new general manager of the Chicago Rebels tasks Tara Becker with faking it with one of his players to help clean up the naughty jock's act, she's all over it. She'll make that misbehaving hunk of muscle look good and get her dream guy into the bargain.

Only the path from fake to real is riddled with thorns . . .

New Rebels GM Hale Fitzpatrick thinks ditzy blonde and wannabe WAG Tara is the perfect solution to his PR problem - until she isn't. Soon Fitz realizes that maybe he doesn't have control of the strings after all . . . especially when he starts to fall for his pretty little puppet.

A fake relationship hockey romance - with a twist!

Jock Wanted is the seventh installment in the Rookie Rebels series, but it can be read as a stand-alone. I have not read any of the other books in the series and it wasn’t hard to get to know the characters. I’m just mad I didn’t discover this series sooner!!

Tara Becker is hired to keep a troublemaker hockey jock in line and out of the tabloids. Everyone thinks she is a gold digger, but she has her reasons for needing money. Her sister is in a long-term care facility and those places aren’t cheap! She just doesn’t tell anyone her reasons and keeps a private life until Hale Fitzpatrick hits her like a brick wall.

Hale is the General Manager of the Chicago Rebels and is the one that initially hires Tara and has his own opinions about the girl, but there’s a fire behind his eyes that only flares when Tara is around.

This book was great! I couldn’t put it down. The chemistry between Hale and Tara is all you could ever ask for, but will they ever realize how much they need each other?

Mine to Love (Protection Series, Book 6) by Kennedy L. Mitchell: Release Blitz + Double Review

Title: Mine to Love
Series: Protection Series, Book 6
Genre: Dark Romantic Thriller
Release Date: June 27, 2022

When a decade-old one-night stand converges with a current high-profile case, can the three of them work through their differences to stop her from being the serial killer’s next victim?

Running from a secret past and now a deranged killer, Remington Dotson, and her nine-year-old son need protection to survive. Except the two men who want to keep her safe are the same ones who gave her a single night of pleasure and then disappeared. Heartbroken by them before, can Remington trust Tallon and Jameson with her life while protecting her heart and keeping the biggest secret of all—that Tallon’s the father?

Chasing a killer leads FBI Agent Tallon Harper straight to the woman who, despite all the time that’s passed, he’s never forgotten. Now she needs his protection but fights him at every turn, keeping secrets that he’s determined to uncover. Good thing he remembers exactly how to entice Remington to obey his commands.

After several attempts by the killer to take who he sees as his, Tallon struggles with his growing need for Remington and keeping her safe. Tight quarters, late nights, and smoldering memories of their time together become too much to stop the inevitable. But when secrets are revealed and trust is broken, can Tallon forgive Remington, or will that broken trust make them all susceptible to the serial killer’s lethal plans?

I love books I just can't put down! This story is intense and totally sucked me in. In the best possible way.

The tension in the story is off the charts. Loved the story, the writing, and the characters! Don't get me started on their chemistry. SO HOT!!!

Tallon was amazingly written. A broken alpha, and vulnerable male. Weird I know, but somehow he was very dominant but also in need of a hug! It's very easy to love him.

Remy is amazing. She's driven and strong. She loves and protects with everything she has.

Jameson is awesome and adds such a dynamic to Tallon and Remy. He is easy-going, approachable, and very loyal.

Definitely a must-read!

Mine to Love is the sixth book in the Protection Series and is a stand-alone, but I am seeing that you should read each in order. However, I am a rebel and this is my very first book by Ms. Mitchell.

This book had it ALL!! WOW! From suspense to a serial killer and sexy cops…who could go wrong!? Remy has a past that kind of bites her in the rear, but it turns out to be hot so don’t worry.

Tallon only knew Remy for a smidge of a night but never could get her out of his mind and then she literally fell in his lap again but she bears secrets….beware.

Together they must work closely to find a smart, cunning serial killer that is on the hunt for Remy.

The title says it all when it comes to Tallon and Remy. This book was to die for. I was on the edge of my seat and fanning myself the next minute. I am trying my best from spending money and buying the rest of the series!!! ENJOY!

A bookworm at heart, Kennedy loves to snuggle up in bed or by the campfire with an unputdownable book.

She began writing two years ago with Falling for the Chance and has no plans of stopping. Her novels are witty, action-packed, and offer enough steam for a great facial.

If you like strong heroines and sexy, tattooed men who can’t keep their hands off them, then this author is the one for you.

Moments in Time by K.K. Allen: Release Blitz + Review

Title: Moments in Time
Author: K.K. Allen
Genre: Adult Sports Romance
Release Date: June 24, 2022
Review Source: Wildfire Marketing Solutions

Jamison Bexley was the one who got away.

If only I hadn’t pushed him.

Seven years ago, he was my everything.
My confidant.
My safe haven.
My best friend.
However, dating was never an option.
Not when his eyes gravitated toward every girl in town but me.

That is, until the curse of bad timing found us both… and struck.

All it took was one night.
One big mistake.
Altering everything we could ever be.

I’m still paying for my sins all these years later.
Life has been downright cruel.
I’m working countless hours trying to hold onto the pieces of my shattered dreams.
Determined that nothing will keep me from my end goal.

Until Jamison struts back into our small town and gets a first-hand glimpse of my life.
Suddenly, he wants to be my knight in shining armor.
But I don’t need a savior.
Those moments in time are long gone.
And he’s about to realize why.

Amazing childhood friends-to-lovers romance that is a sweet, sexy & amazing second-chance love story that brings out all the feels!!!

Jamison and Violet were childhood best friends, but as relationships sometimes do they fell apart in their early 20s. After seven years of not speaking, they unexpectedly run into each other again. It’s like no time has changed. They’re not shy around each other, they KNOW each other.

Jami was so hurt when Violet walked away from their friendship and married somebody else. She feels guilty and is determined to move on and get back to the life she always wanted. When they finally have the talk and everything pours out of them both…..WOW!

I loved the 2nd chance aspect. The fact that they knew each other but had their own lives and fate brought them back to their friendship was amazing. The chemistry is fantastic, the sex off the charts & smoking hot!!!

K.K. Allen’s writing was spot-on!!! I was invested in these characters and their story, and their romance is completely amazing! 

Must read!!

Highly Recommended!!!!
