Refrain (Soul Series Book 3) - Kennedy Ryan

This is the 3rd book in the Soul series.  This book is NOT intended to be read alone.  It is written in a trilogy of the Soul series.  Please read this amazing set of books in order, and if you hurry you can get all of them at 99 cents!

 

Kai and Rhys story comes to conclusion with this gripping book just full of surprises.  I was excited to turn each page and eagerly wanted to finish the book!  Theirs is a true love story about a bond felt so deep.....

 

Rhys and Kai have already been through so much.  Can they stand much more?  I liked the flow of the story.  I felt like I was right there.  It is a really great love story where the emotions are right on the surface to be felt.

 

This was such a great read.  The book was very hard to put down.  I loved the characters and hope to see them in future stories.  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Keeping you
Boyfriend Material (Ethan & Wyatt) - K.A. Mitchell

This is the 2nd book in the Ethan & Wyatt series.  This book can be read as a standalone.  It goes better, when paired with the 1st book in the series.  I recommend reading the series in order, for better understanding.

 

Ethan & Wyatt's story continues almost right where we left off.  They are committed to one another at this point and make a great couple.  But can all really be that well for college students who have secrets?

 

Wyatt is insecure as a boyfriend.  Having years of nothing in the way of love, this is all new to him.  Ethan is there to keep his head on straight, well sort of. 

 

Was a fun and short story.  I like these characters and hope we get to see them again.  The journey to love is never smooth, but books like this make you feel it is possible.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Sex. Lies. Greed. Power. Scandal. Politics.
 
Nothing gets by Elizabeth McNeal. As a forty-five year old divorcee and a nationally renowned political strategist, she can claim to have seen it all. Most of her adult life she’s focused on two important things ─ her daughter and her career. Now, challenged by a new campaign and a new candidate, Elizabeth is forced to reevaluate the things she most values and make some major decisions that could impact her future.
 
William Baxter is a thirty-four year old Democratic Congressman for the great state of Texas who’s vying for an empty seat in the U.S. Senate. Accustomed to standing out in a crowd, Liam takes pride in being true to himself and the people he serves. He refuses to fall in line with the stereotypical persona of a politician. Backed by one of the richest men in Texas, Liam is offered the chance to work with D.C.’s most elite political strategist. With the odds already against him because of his party affiliation and age, it’s an offer he can’t refuse.
 
Apprehensive about their age differences and driven by politics, Elizabeth finds herself keeping score of their sensual game for control. For the woman who thought she’d seen it all, the man in the eccentric ties and a dashing smile teaches her a new game to play. Rules are made to be broken. Lines are meant to be crossed. But in the high stakes sport of politics, where one bad decision can destroy a campaign, can they afford to rewrite the rules to meet their desires or will they choose to remain politically incorrect?

ABOUT THE BOOK:

 

People dream of a love that runs deep. So deep it feels like it's always been with you, just waiting for the person who'll own your heart and soul forever. So few ever find it, but for Rhyson Gray and Kai Pearson, happily ever after was only the beginning... One of the biggest rock stars in the world and one of the brightest rising stars make a life together. Sometimes it's glamour-filled days and blissed out nights, but it's mostly staying true in the too-bright glare of the spotlight. It's long stretches where the road is lonely and the work is hard. It's living in a love that's the safest place you know even while danger lurks at your door. Book 3 of The Soul series is an emotionally-charged epic conclusion that had to be told and should not be missed for fans of this series and this couple!

Hard to Hold: A Hard to Play Novel - Katie Rose

Logan hires Isabella to be his no nonsense nanny.  He had an ex drop the baby on him in a bar.  He needs someone to help him learn the ropes of temporary fatherhood.

 

Isabella knows that this arrangement will never be temporary.  She has seen this too often.  She must teach Logan how to care for an infant, so he can enjoy his child.

 

Logan is so grateful to have the amazing Isabella with his child.  He must go out of town a lot for work.  He honestly knows nothing about how to care for an infant.  Now if only he could control the attraction to the nanny.

 

Such a sweet and sexy book.  I loved the banter, the heat, and the angst.  Truly this story has it all - even a baby!  These two are so meant to be together.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Cover Reveal - The Goal

 

 

She’s good at achieving her goals…

 

College senior Sabrina James has her whole future planned out: graduate from college, kick butt in law school, and land a high-paying job at a cutthroat firm. Her path to escaping her shameful past certainly doesn’t include a gorgeous hockey player who believes in love at first sight. One night of sizzling heat and surprising tenderness is all she’s willing to give John Tucker, but sometimes, one night is all it takes for your entire life to change.

 

 

But the game just got a whole lot more complicated

 

Tucker believes being a team player is as important as being the star. On the ice, he’s fine staying out of the spotlight, but when it comes to becoming a daddy at the age of twenty-two, he refuses to be a bench warmer. It doesn’t hurt that the soon-to-be mother of his child is beautiful, whip-smart, and keeps him on his toes. The problem is, Sabrina’s heart is locked up tight, and the fiery brunette is too stubborn to accept his help. If he wants a life with the woman of his dreams, he’ll have to convince her that some goals can only be made with an assist.

Say It Right - A.M. Arthur

This is book # 2 in the All Saints series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  I recommend reading the series in order, for reader enjoyment and understanding.

 

Marc & Anthony have a history that did not end well.  When the two cross paths again, it is because Anthony has a little sister who begs.  After seeing each other again, they both seem to come alive.

 

Anthony suffers from an addiction he needs to kick. Marc deals with runaways and homeless teens at the LGBT shelter he works for.  He knows what Anthony faces if he is really to get clean.

 

These two are so meant to be together!  All through the story you cannot help but want the HEA.  The series is so good!  I was pleased to revisit the amazing characters from the first book, as well.  I cannot wait for the next story in this series.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

My hero
Breaking the Rules (Harlequin Blaze) - Tawny Weber

This is the 14th book in the Uniformly Hot series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  I recommend reading series books in order for better understanding.  

 

Sophia & Max meet under less than typical circumstances.  He promised her brother he would look in on her.  She is sick of being babied by another brother or friend.

 

Max just wants to pay his brother in arms back by doing a simple favor.  How did he know the sister he was to check up on was seriously hot?  His attraction aside, she needs him.

 

This was an amazingly hot and sexy story!  I love the banter.  The pages literally sizzle there is so much chemistry.  Really fun read.  Great addition to the series too.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

How to Catch a (Falling) Star: A story of Secrets, Scandals and Hollywood Cover-Ups (How to Catch a Star Book 2) - Gabrielle Aquilina

This is the 2nd book in the How To Catch A Star series.  This can be read as a standalone novel.  I recommend reading series books in order for reader enjoyment and understanding.

 

Johnny & Darcy have met before.  She had brushed him off, since she had a boyfriend.  This time, at the taping of a talk show, she needs his help.  He is a true hero.

 

Darcy cannot help but feel responsible.  His helping her nearly ruined him.  Can she let him know how grateful she is for his timing?  When everyone else says to stay away, how do you fight your feelings?

 

This is such a sweet and sexy romance.  Perfect for this series.  Such a great book and a nice but almost too small HEA.  I cannot wait to see where the author goes next.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Connection Error (#gaymers) - Annabeth Albert

This is the 3rd book in the Gaymers series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment & understanding, I recommend reading the series in order.

 

Josiah rushes to get on a plane that is taking him to the biggest opportunity of his career so far.  There he meets Ryan, who also loves the game Josiah is making happen.  When Ryan's secrets come out, will they still be friends?  Can they be more?

 

Ryan is afraid to tell Josiah about his injury.  Most times it stirs anger, or too many questions.  His attraction to Josiah is strong, and it seems to be mutual.  Josiah has never been so attracted to someone so fast.  Is there a place to meet in the middle?

 

I absolutely love this series!  I also love this book.  The characters are so real to me.... the story is really so sweet and sexy at the same time.  This author never disappoints!  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
