Wishing for some Starless Nights!

Kathryn Andrews writes the kind of books that I read and then immediately reread because there is so much of the story that I was afraid I missed and so much that I just want to experience again.  Starless Nights left me with so many moments that I want, no I need, to experience just one more time.  Check out the blurb!


Beau Hale She said that she was my best friend and then one day she wasn’t. Every day I live with the visible scars, but it’s the invisible ones that hurt the most. They are a constant reminder of everything I’ve lost as well as all the things that I’ll never have. I should be over this by now, it’s been years, but I can’t escape the memories that haunt me.Everyone around me is moving on with their life, so now I need to do the same. Tennis brought me to Columbia University, and I am quickly proving that I will not let anyone defeat me, past or present. I am in control now. Life has taught me the hard way to remember that. But after all this time, I’m still searching for…

Joey, Cole, Haden and Braxton have been a constant in my life since I was five, and I have loved being one of the guys.
I’ve been cheerleader.
I’ve been study partner.
I’ve been listener.
When we’re young, we don’t realize the profound impact certain people will have on our lives. I had no idea twelve years ago I’d meet four boys who would turn out to be my best friends, my soul mates - my barmy.
Now school is almost done, our last summer together is drawing closer, and I’m trying to hold on to what we have while I still can. After this we’ll have to say goodbye to each other, as our choices will take our lives in different directions. But I don't know if our friendship can survive once secrets and surprises begin revealing themselves to us at every turn.
When it’s all said and done, will our friendships remain unbreakable? Or will our once strong bond prove to be weaker than we anticipated?
Letting go is …

In the Zone

If you've read my blog for very long you would know I am a huge fan of author Catherine Gayle. Her Portland Storm Hockey series is one of my favorite sport romances and on my auto-buy list.  Her newest release, In the Zone, is another great addition to this series.  Check out the blurb:

It was supposed to be a single night of fake names, half-truths, and anonymous sex. Neither of them was prepared for it to become more. Keith Burns, star defenseman for the NHL’s Portland Storm, was just looking for a way to pass the time and ease the loneliness of his lavish lifestyle. Brianna Hayden wanted to find herself—and maybe learn to love herself again—after health issues changed everything. Anonymity is the name of their game; the rules were laid down at the outset. But when a chance encounter brings them back together long after the game should have ended, all their initial rules get thrown out the window.

It isn’t long before partial truths and dancing around the pain of the past gets co…

Worth the Fall

If you've read my blog from the beginning you would know I am a huge Caitie Quinn/Bria Quinlan fan.  She knows how to write stories that not only make me laugh, but they touch the heart.  I have reread all of her books many times and they are perfect when I need that little boost to remind me that love and life, while not always perfect, is still sweet.  Check out the blurb of Caitie's newest release, Worth the Fall.

Kasey Lane is having a bad week.
Understatement.
Her idea of success never involved losing her job, man, and apartment in 24-hours. Now, with nowhere to go and no way to pay for it anyway, Kasey decides it’s time for a fresh start, which means a new apartment, a new career, and…no men.

But as a magnet for ridiculousness and absurd brushes with the law, her start goes from fresh to stale in record time. It doesn’t help that Mr. Wrong keeps showing up during her adventures gone awry and taking over. Now, as Kasey plans her way to independence she has to decide if the o…

Nine years ago, things were perfect. Lacey and Karson had found their happily ever after in each other…or so they thought. How do two people who were meant to be move on from that once-in-a-lifetime love?

Lacey has a strength inside her that comes alive with the things she’s most passionate about. She’s a fighter, a survivor, and has everything she’s ever wanted but the one thing that matters most—love.

Nine years later, and neither has been able to succeed in moving on from what was, what could have been, and who each of their hearts still beats for. When a chance encounter during a fateful night has their paths crossing again, will t…

For the Win

I have read many books by author Amber Garza.  She always writes age appropriate YA/NA's that are great, clean reads.  Her story lines are realistic and emotional, yet not too heavy.  Check out the blurb on her newest release, For the Win.

London Miller has one best friend.
Words. 
She lives in the pages of the books she reads, preferring the safety of fictional worlds over the dark and scary reality of her own life. Books aren't her escape...they're her salvation. 
Cooper Montgomery has one true love.  Baseball. 
When he's on the mound, throwing a pitch, the darkness of his world fades away. The game is something he can control, something he can count on. 
A twist of fate brings London and Cooper together, a curve ball that forces them both outside of their comfort zones. As they spend time together, a relationship begins to blossom and both of them start to believe that there just might be something bright and beautiful in their lives.

However, the game changes when your hea…

Assumptions by Melanie Codina

What happens when a girl set on playing by the rules …
Leeann Bradley is a college graduate who has achieved many of her personal goals, all because she follows the rules she’s set for herself. It’s simple. You work hard, enjoy life, surround yourself with friends and family, avoid jumping to conclusions … and oh yeah, don’t date jocks. These rules have worked well and have taken her down the path she wants in life. So what’s a girl to do when temptation, in the form of a sexy college soccer player, is placed right in the middle of that path? Deciding when to break the rules has never been easier for Leeann. But when assumptions are made, and more than just the rules are broken … will she be able to find her way down that path again? And what happens when it’s no longer the path she’s meant to take?
Finds a guy worth breaking them for …
Until now, Jonathan Baxter had one primary focus in his life, soccer. All decisions made, have been based on how it could affect his abilit…

It's Game ON!!

I have had the opportunity to read and review Collette West's past releases, Night Games and Game Changer, so I jumped at the chance to read her newest release, Game On.  Check out the blurb:

Pitching phenom Bruce "Jilly" Gillette has a hard time talking to women. His hulking presence of tattoos and muscles is what makes him an intimidating closer on the mound, yet off the field, he's painfully shy, uncomfortable in his own skin. Desperate to revamp his loner image, the New York Kings hold a dream date contest, granting the lucky winner a night on the town with their surly reliever, doing whatever it takes to force Jilly out of his comfort zone. Hailey Halpert enters the contest on a whim, looking for answers as to why her high school relationship with Jilly hit the skids. Now she’s a popular romance author writing under a pen name, and her reappearance in Jilly's life is no accident. It turns out that her novels are all about the sexy players on t…

I'm a huge fan of author Jennifer Miller and she always has the most beautiful book covers.  Her soon to be released, Perfect Little Plan, has a gorgeous new cover, check it out!!

Some girls like to throw caution into the wind, let fate take them where she wants them to be. But not Pyper Lexington. She’s all about the plan. Graduate college and own a successful business have been marked off the list. All that's left of her perfect little plan is marrying a man equal to her father in success and wealth. And of course, adding to that the 2.5 children and picket fence, every girl wants that—right? But fate has other ideas and like the old saying goes, ‘the best-laid plans often go awry.’ In walks Rixton Andrews, a cocky bartender with a sexy, southern drawl. He makes his intentions clear after a night they both can’t forget. He wants Pyper – and he’s determined to make her want him too. But can a man of Rixton’s status convince a princess like Pyper that he’s the man she’s been wai…

Not Quite Forever

Catherine Bybee has been, and will always be, on my auto-buy list.  I have read almost all of her contemporary romance books, I'm on her street-team, and I had the pleasure of meeting her at RWA last summer.  Her books are always a sexy fun read and Not Quite Forever has quickly become one of my favorites, check out the blurb:

The touching and heartwarming fourth novel in the wildly popular Not Quite series from New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee.
Romance author Dakota Laurens believes that happily-ever-afters exist only between the covers of her sexy novels. But to her surprise, she finds a real-life hero when she meets a handsome emergency room doctor. The outspoken author feels an instant and intense attraction to Dr. Walt Eddy, and the feeling is mutual. When the globetrotting doctor pulls a disappearing act on Dakota, she’s prepared to write him off…until fate brings a blindsiding twist to her story.

Still scarred from a past tragedy, Walt may have disappeared on …
