INTERFERENCE Coming July 18th

 

BRAYDEN

 

I’m a goddamn prodigy. It’s true. Ask anyone. I threw my first curveball the day I was born.

 

The whole damn town is waiting on me. To live up to my father’s famous name. To reach for the stars.

 

All I want to reach for is her.

 

But Ashley is the sweet addiction I can’t afford. She’s my best friend’s sister. Hell, she’s practically my little sister. For years, I’ve protected her from guys that want one thing. What happens now that I’ve turned into one of them? Who’s gonna shield her from the way I was made, from my little white lies and from what I’m about to become?

 

My game plan sounds simple: Pitch my way into the Major League draft and stay out of Ashley Foster’s pants. That first part may be statistically difficult.

 

The second feels damn near impossible.

 

ASHLEY

 

From the moment we met, I knew he was trouble. The kind my mother sent me to find. The type that ruins you for any other brand.

 

When we were young kids, Didn’t know what to call the frogs and butterflies that danced

in my belly whenever Brayden came near. Now I know they have a name.

 

Those three little words that could heal or destroy him.

 

Before Brayden, my life was normal. And then it wasn’t. It couldn’t be. Ever again. How was I to know that stealing his seat would change all our lives?

 

Anger and forgiveness share two halves of the same coin. Our story might make you choose sides.

STEALING HOME COMING AUGUST 1ST

 

ASHLEY

 

I’ve given up. On my childish dreams. On getting out of this town. On love. On him. On everything.

 

I’m barely treading water.

 

BRAYDEN

 

I’m the man with it all.

 

The pinstriped jersey covering my back garners easy cash, flashy cars and fast women. My gilded name drapes over the city in neon. I have everything. Everything, except the thing I crave most. Ashley Foster.

 

There’s one addiction I never tried to beat.

 

They say you can never go home again. I’m out to prove them wrong. But what if returning requires facing all the things you destroyed? To what lengths would you go to earn forgiveness?

 

Would you beg? Would you borrow? Would you steal?

 

Stealing home is the riskiest move in baseball. But the reward... If it works? Winning her back is a chance I’m finally ready to take.

My pockets are filled with stars. It’s time to follow them home.

 

This time, I don’t want to steal her firsts, I want to lay claim on all her lasts.

About Accidentally in Love:



Arya 

 

I know I can make you blush. 
 
It’s a weird claim to fame, but a perk of my dream job: being the voice of your favorite romance audio books. Laughter, hijinks, adventure. Passion. Sweet heaven, the passion. It’s everything I could ever want. Except… 
The problem with this fabulous life? 
 
It’s all just fantasy. 

 

Picking between Chinese and Thai delivery doesn’t count as adventure. 
The bestie who always makes me laugh is thousands of miles away. 
As for the hunky hero? It’s not like he’s just going to come crashing into my apartment. 

 

Until the night a bearded stranger does exactly that… 

 

 
Gavin 
 
Do the job. Get the bad guy. Go home. 
 
Most importantly, don’t get involved. 
 
Those are the rules. The agency’s and mine. And they work. Even better, they give me the perfect excuse to keep my distance. 
The perfect escape from getting burned again. Except… 

 

Why can’t I stop watching her? 
I shouldn’t care more about what she’s doing than my target. 
I shouldn’t let her distract me from the job. 
And I sure as hell shouldn’t fantasize about a woman I’ll never meet. 

 

That is, until the night I surprise us both by kicking down her apartment door. Rules or no rules, it's true that... 

 

After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.


Excerpt
Copyright @ 2019 Katy Ames

 

“Number one rule of tailing someone: don’t breathe so loud they can hear you five flights away.”
 
“Hey!” I say, thwacking his chest. “Don’t be a jerk. Besides, I don’t think you’re in the position to give spy tips right now.”
 
One bold eyebrow lifts in question.
 
Pushing out of his grasp, I whip the hat off my head, breathing in relief as cool air hits my skull. “Isn’t the number one rule of spying not to pick up a tail in the first place?”
 
The first eyebrow drops, followed by the other. Green eyes turn sharp, primitive, before brightening. A roar of laughter erupts from his chest. We stand there for who knows how long, me huffing and puffing, and Gavin laughing like I’ve just delivered the funniest one-liner he’s ever heard. When he stops, his chest is heaving as hard as mine. One last chuckle escapes when he clocks my annoyed expression.
 
“Oh, come on. You should be proud. It’s been forever since I laughed that hard. That alone should make up for giving yourself away. Besides, it was a good effort. For a first timer.”
 
“Ugh,” is the only answer that seems fitting. “When did you realize I was there?”
 
“Hmm,” he says, stroking his beard, his lips still twisted in a smirk. “Down in the alley. When you scraped that thing against the wall.” He points at the metal tip on the large umbrella.
 
“You heard that?”
 
“Hmm,” he repeats, head bobbing. “That and a lot more.” Gavin sweeps his eyes down my body, lingering on my boots before pivoting and heading down the hall.
 
“Wait, what else?” Keeping up is impossible, what with my thigh muscles screaming and pain scorching my foot. He slows his pace without glancing back, his strides shortening until I catch up.
Another step and another wince, and Gavin mutters something under his breath before lifting me off my feet. My own smirk turns to a shriek when he throws me over his shoulder and swats my butt before continuing down the hall.
 
“That was completely unnecessary.” My complaint lacks edge, which I blame on the view of his very fine ass.
 
“Quite the opposite, Ms. Winters. Consider it punishment for ignoring my warnings about staying away.”


 

 

About Katy Ames:


 
Katy Ames has spent most of her life on the East Coast and hopes to spend more of it in the UK, primarily so she can indulge in her serious plaid obsession. There isn’t a teenage drama or a period British TV show she hasn’t binge-watched at least twice. And she can be persuaded to do almost anything with the promise of bourbon, chocolate, or a nap (not necessarily in that order).

 

Katy is mom to a small human who has an obscene amount of energy and a blissful ability to ignore swear words, and wife to a man whose reading habits are far too serious. Katy and her family reside in Washington, D.C., a city she where never intended to live and loves so much she’d be happy to talk about it for hours. Just ask.

Excerpt:

 

“Maybe it’s just too different,” Wills says, and this terrifies him. Tell me no, tell me I’m wrong. He feels like he’s falling and Crispin’s supposed to catch him, but instead there’s only empty air. 

 

But Crispin doesn’t say anything. He just looks at Wills with wide, hurt eyes.  

 

“It’s not that I don’t love you. It’s just this isn’t working, Crispin, you know it’s not working, we’re both unhappy and nothing matches up. It’s like real life doesn’t work for us.” Wills feels like crying and starts reciting times tables in his head: an old trick he learned when they were small that still works, sometimes. He’s getting more and more frantic. Crispin’s silence means he agrees. 

 

Crispin just blinks at him with those big sad eyes. Oh god. Wills can’t believe he’s even saying any of this out loud and he can’t believe he’s subjecting Crispin to this, dear god, he can’t believe he’s the one making Crispin look like that. Crispin is so good. Crispin is too good to be with someone like him, someone who can’t even manage to say thank you when his boyfriend hands him a cup of fucking coffee. 

 

“You don’t deserve this,” Wills manages. He can keep everything out of his voice, can sound reasonable, but not for much longer. He means, I don’t deserve you. Wills needs Crispin to hear that and tell him Wills, no, I love you. 

 

“Okay,” Crispin says quietly. 

 

“You don’t deserve to live like this,” Wills says. He’s getting desperate. Say no, Crispin. Say that you don’t know what I’m talking about. Fight with me. Yell at me. Tell me I’m fucking wrong. 

 

“I get it,” Crispin tells him. “I get it, Wills.” 

 

Wills feels like all the air has been replaced with something else, something unbreathable and thick. 

 

“This was always just — you never —” Crispin’s shaking his head. “It never meant as much to you, did it? It never meant the same. Ever. I was a fucking idiot.” 

 

Wills realizes with a hard shock what Crispin means. “No!” he says. “No, Crispin, no, it’s not like that, it’s  —” 

 

Crispin just looks at him. He leans down and starts to unlace his boots. “Then fight for it,” he says quietly. “If you care about me, fight for it.” He walks off.

This marriage of convenience is about to teach him a big life lesson...

 

Ben Leach, a defenseman for the York Bombers, has everything in life he could want—except happiness. Terminally miserable, he's settled into his rut with the acceptance of someone who knows he doesn't deserve any better—until he runs into an old acquaintance during a quick trip to Las Vegas...a trip that changes everything.

 

Natalie Kenney is on the run thanks to a stalker ex who thinks she belongs to him. Running into her old friend's brother couldn't have come at a better time and, in an impulsive move that surprises her, she accepts his half-hearted attempt to rescue her.

But the rescue comes with consequences.
 
The new couple suddenly finds themselves in positions neither one expected, faced with challenges—and threats—that push them both out of their comfort zones. Will their new relationship lead to something more, or is it merely a marriage in name only? Ben expects it to crash-and-burn like the happiness that always seems to be just out of his reach and when the final buzzer sounds, he needs to decide if he's simply playing a part or if life—and love—is a lot more than a spectator sport.

Playing His Part: A York Bombers Hockey Romance (The York Bombers Book 7)Playing His Part: A York Bombers Hockey Romance by Lisa B. Kamps
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #7, in The York Bombers series. This can be read as a standalone novel. For readers understanding of the series, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading them in order.

Natalie has had a few problems. Recently an ex-boyfriend who scares her to death. He and all the other problems become one big issue when she runs into the older brother of a an old friend in Las Vegas.

Ben does not even know what comes over him. He is married before he even knows what to do about it. His friends cannot believe it - and truthfully, neither can he. Natalie stirs in him things he does not ever remember feeling.

This book moves at a pace faster than I can even tell you. The characters are so thrilling and compelling it is literally like I should have brought popcorn! I could not put this book down. Like the others in this great series, this one brought the house down.

Passion on Park Avenue (Central Park Pact #1) - Lauren Layne

Naomi has always wanted one thing: an address in the Upper East Side.  Only it takes more than address to have the New York Elite accept her.  She is already a strong and powerful woman in her own right, owning a jewelry empire as she does.  What more can she do to get where she wants to be?

 

Oliver has always had a thing for Naomi.  They grew up together of a sort, as her mother worked for his family.  She does not want an association with him at this point, though.  She wants to be accepted on her own merits.  Can he convince her to try a little with him?

 

This story felt kind of off to me for some reason.  I liked the characters and the story just fine.  It just seemed to start off slower than the pace is usually from this author.  Overall I liked the struggle and story and would give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

100% Unofficial Fortnite Pro Guide - Becker&Mayer! Books

I have read many users guide's in my time, but this one was special to me - and I will tell you why.  This guide is for Fortnite, an online game every one is playing, including myself.  I play with my kids when I have the time and this book is a big help!

 

There are suggestions in here that help you play the game and be able to respond faster.  It has play ideas for multiple platforms since the game can be played across so many.  I really loved the full color and "learn to be a pro" attitude.  

 

Like any other player, I want to be the best at what I do, when I do it.  I love being able to see the "Epic" changes that every season on Fortnite seems to bring.  I also like being able to collect the "Skins" that make me as a player - look even more intimidating.  Since that is the fun of the game.

 

This guide was a great help full of many good ideas and suggestions.  I recommend you read it before your next Battle Royale.  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Book Spot!

Exclusive Excerpt:

 

 

Chancing a quick glance over my shoulder, I hear the squeaky hinges of a door opening just as I run square into the person exiting. I startle and try to step back as I begin apologizing profusely, but firm hands grip my shoulders, not allowing me to move.

 

“I’m so sorry,” I gasp. The keycard falls from my hand and lands at the feet of the man I nearly ran over. Looking down, my eyes take in his expensive black shoes, the keycard resting on the ground just in front of him.

 

His hands release my shoulders, and I lunge for the keycard, but he’s too quick, reaching down and picking it up before I can get to it. His tan fingers wrap around the cheap plastic as he stands up. In shock for a moment, I finally pull myself up and meet his amber eyes.

 

“Are you okay?” He narrows his honey-colored eyes on me, and I take in his gray dress pants, black shirt, no tie. His hair is short, but slightly wispy on top—a little messy, not perfectly in place. His skin is golden brown, as if he’s been on a tropical vacation. His tan skin makes those amber eyes pop against his dark eyelashes. His square jaw is sprinkled with just enough hair to show he hasn’t shaved today, but it’s his dimples that take my breath away. He’s so well put together I’d guess he was in his thirties. He may be the most beautiful man I’ve ever laid eyes on, but he screams money, power—danger.

 

“Are you okay?” he asks again, tilting his head at me as I drink him in.

 

“Oh, um…yes, sorry…just nervous.” I look away from him and down to my fidgeting hands.

 

He glances behind me at the men on the sidewalk and then back to me as if piecing things together. “Are they harassing you?” He gestures with his head.

 

“No.” I shake my head. “I’m just tired. It’s been a really long day. I’m sorry I bumped into you,” I say timidly. I extend my hand, palm up in an unspoken gesture for him to return my keycard. My hand shakes as he looks between the card in his hand and me. His thumb flicks at the little yellow sticky note before he turns around and walks toward the door marked one hundred forty-three. He inserts the keycard and pushes the door open, holding it for me.

 

 

My heart stammers in my chest as I approach cautiously. I notice the expensive watch on his wrist, which peeks out from his dress shirt, and the light, luxurious smell of what can only be designer cologne. The scent paralyzes me—so intoxicating that I want to press my face to his neck and breathe him in.

 

 

Everything inside me—my good sense, my gut—screams at me not to walk toward that door, but I go against my better judgment. In three quick strides, I’m standing at the open door to my motel room as his amber eyes follow me. Brushing against him, I slide by and reach for the lights on the wall just inside the door. Only a small bedside lamp illuminates the room. I notice the musty smell as I glance around at the old furniture.

 

 

“Close this door and lock it,” he says, pulling the keycard from the door. He steps just over the threshold and into the room, reaching out to me with the keycard. “Don’t open this door for anybody. Understand?”

 

I swallow hard and nod. His fingers are warm against my palm as he places the keycard in my hand. My fingers instinctively close and trap his hand in mine. Rooted in place, he scans the room as if searching for something or someone. With no other words of warning or even a goodbye, he pulls his hand free and steps back through the door, closing it behind him with a loud bang.

About the Author:

 

 

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.

 

Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.

 

Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

 

As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

Release Blitz - Benched

 
This single dad hockey player plays to win... Benched by Elise Faber is available now!
 
 
 
 
Max Montgomery was at the height of his career, playing the best hockey of his life, and lucky enough to have a starting spot on a team that was actually a contender for the Cup.
 
And one by one his friends were falling in love.
 
Love. Now that was a dirty four-letter word if he’d ever heard one.
 
Max had experienced love and all of its aftereffects and where had that gotten him?
 
Lonely, living in an apartment, and paying alimony to a woman who’d left him at the merest sign of a hiccup in their marriage.
 
His only bright spot was his son. Brayden had moved back in with him a few months ago, after his mother had taken off to God knew where. Max loved having him home, but with his son only seven and him on the road for forty-two games a year, they’d struggled. Still, they’d found a way to make it work.
 
But then Brayden threw Max a completely new curve ball.
 
He wanted Max to find a wife.
 
Max had been there, done that, got the crappy T-shirt as a souvenir. No way would he make himself vulnerable like that again, no matter how much his son wanted it.
 
A puppy was a perfectly viable alternative, right?
 
At least that was what he’d been thinking until he met Angelica Shallows, sister to the team’s Physical Therapist guru, Mandy, and a brilliant engineer in her own right. She was gorgeous, smart, but had shadows in her eyes.
 
Max knew all about shadows, knew they were meant as a sign for him to stay away.
 
What was that about the best intentions paving the road to hell? Max may have wanted to stay away, may have wanted to abide the warning signs in Angie’s eyes, but—
 
The real trouble began when found that he couldn’t do either of those things.
 
 
 
 
About the Author:
 
Aside from writing romance, Elise's passions are chocolate, Star Wars, and hockey (the order depending on the day and how well her team -- the Sharks! -- are playing). She and her husband also play as much hockey as they can squeeze into their schedules, so much so that their typical date night is spent on the ice. Elise is the mom to two exuberant boys and is thoroughly addicted to Dancing With the Stars.

Kurt
 
She’s smart, hot, and funny. My dream girl.

I don’t know if I can hide my feelings any longer.

He’s still tall, dark, and handsome, and I can’t deny the pull.  
 
Working together only complicates things. Long days and nights in the office can be dangerous.  
When we’re not at the office, he’s always hanging around my apartment. To see my brother. Yeah, right.

 

All I know is, summer in the city is about to get a lot hotter.

Excerpt
Copyright @ 2019 Sylvia Kane

 

“I’m here for Corina Davies in 1205,” I respond, my nerves rattling even louder than five minutes ago when I was seized with the instinct to see her.
 
“Is she expecting you?” he asks, resting his hand on the phone.
 
I shake my head. The guy must think I’m a weirdo for just showing up like this. He’s going to call her for sure. Sure enough, he picks up the phone. “Ms. Davies, you have a visitor,” he says, and then looks back at me. “Your name?”
 
I almost turn around to walk back out into the night, but I stay rooted to the spot. “Kurt. Kurt Owens.”
“Kurt Owens. Thanks.”
 
He turns to me again and nods. “Go ahead. Have a good evening.”
 
I head for the elevator, and my heart rate rises with each step. She’s gonna think I’m fucking nuts for showing up like this at midnight. And why am I doing this again? What do I hope to achieve by interrupting whatever relaxing activity she’s enjoying at this time of night? I don’t know, but the thought of seeing her makes my palms sweat. I remember that skirt she wore, and how soft her legs looked. My cock twitches at the memory of her silky-smooth legs. Fuck. Down, boy. We’re not here for that.
 
I step into the elevator and before I know it, I’m standing in front of her door, my hand in the air. What am I going to tell her? What’s my excuse for showing up here so late? At the very least, I have to admit it to myself—I just want to see her. I have to see her. There’s no denying the spark that flew between us the other night. All those years hadn’t done a damn thing to kill our chemistry.
 
It sure is ballsy to just show up here. Maybe I’ve had a bit much to drink, but I’m not drunk. I’m not slurring or falling over myself. She won’t notice.
 
Finally, I knock. She’s expecting me, because she opens up right away. Seeing her knocks the wind out of me. Her hair rests over her shoulders in this sexy, yet natural way; she has a hint of makeup, but not much. She doesn’t need any. She’s still a natural beauty, just like she was all those years ago.
 
A light pink, silk robe clings to her body and ends just above the knees. She ties up the belt, very tight, as if afraid it might slip off any minute. Or that I might see what’s underneath. I try to push the thought from my head.
 
“Hi,” I say, hoping I don’t look as awkward as I feel. I’m standing in her doorway, without any good reason whatsoever, like a doofus. She’d be perfectly justified in turning me away with some excuse about going to sleep or whatever. But, she doesn’t.
 
She stands back to let me in.
 
“Hi, Kurt.”
 
I love the way my name sounds on her lips. Her lush, rosy lips. So smooth and kissable.

Hurts
The Friend Zone: the most hilarious and heartbreaking romantic comedy of 2019 - Abby Jimenez

I was given the option to have a 'FREE PREVIEW' of this new book.  I loved it so much and could not put it down, so I ran to the library as soon as I finished my preview, so I could finish the story.  So worth it.  God Bless my local county library!

 

Josh meets Kristen in a less than stellar way.  Then when they meet officially later, they already have to work harder to impress one another.  They are mutual friends of a couple who is getting married so there is a lot going on.

 

Kristen is involved with someone else when she meets Josh, so they are just friends.  For now.  If ever a chance arises to to take it to another level?  Well lets just say there are enough sparks between them to light up Las Vegas.

 

This was such a witty and fun story.  I really could not put it down.  I found the characters to be deliciously complex.  The heat and heart in the book made it a great read.  The pace was steady, and there was plenty of humor too.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

 

***Thanks to Netgalley, and the publisher for the free preview.

Crazy
Superfan - Sarina Bowen

This is book #3, in the Brooklyn Bruisers series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading the series in order.

 

Silas left the only woman who truly interests him behind.  To chase a dream that has become more than a reality.  Now he must find out if there is still a spark.  He has to see her.

 

Delilah has always wished she had that night with Silas AKA "Ralph" years ago.  Is it tempting fate to try now?  The heat between them is obvious, but can they get beyond the past and create what could be a future?

 

This was such an amazing story.  From start to finish I could not put this book down.  Very hot and really good, the characters keep you mesmerized until all of a sudden your at the last page.  Well worth the wait.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This early copy was given to me in exchange for an honest review only.
