ARC Review: Dirty Thoughts by Megan Erickson

Dirty Thoughts is the first book in Megan Erickson’s new Mechanics of Love series, which is a spin-off of her Bowler University series. Though the Bowler University books are NA, the Mechanics of Love series is a Contemporary series with each book being a standalone. You do not need to have read those books first in order to understand this series, but that is where the Payton brothers are first introduced. Cal Payton and Jenna Macmillan love each other through high school and had their lives planned together, until one incident ruined everything for them. But when Jenna walks in to Cal’s garage years later looking better than ever, Cal and Jenna are suddenly forced to face everything that they left behind. Though Cal and Jenna still feel the pull to one another and are more attracted to each other than ever, the differences that once separated them are still…

Some things are sexier the second time around. Cal Payton has gruff and grumbly down to an art…all the better for keeping people away. And it usually works. Until Jenna MacMillan–his biggest mistake–walks into Payton and Sons mechanic shop all grown up, looking like sunshine, and inspiring more than a few dirty thoughts. Jenna was sure she was long over the boy she’d once loved with reckless abandon, but one look at the steel-eyed Cal Payton has her falling apart all over again. Ten years may have passed, but the pull is stronger than ever… and this Cal is all man.

ARC Review: Hard To Let Go by Laura Kaye

  Hard To Let Go is the fourth book in Laura Kaye’s Hard Ink series of standalones. This one centers on Beckett Murda and Katherine Rixey. While this one can be read as a standalone, I would highly recommend reading these in order as the story continues from one book to the next. It isn’t necessary to read the previous books to understand this one, but it does increase the reader’s enjoyment and this book builds upon what has previously happened.  As Beckett Murda and the rest of his time start to get to the bottom of who their enemies are that took out half their team and ended their time in the Army, things begin to heat up when Nick’s sister Katherine Rixey shows up. Beckett and Kat don’t seem to be able to have a conversation without sparks flying, and yet they also find themselves drawn to one…

Avon Contemporaries on Sale!

At Wolf Ranch RECOMMENDED: At Wolf Ranch  by Jennifer Ryan is $2.99! This is technically more of a romantic suspense than a contemporary, but I’d say the suspense portion is pretty light. The book also features an awesome beta rancher hero who knows how to cook. Elyse and I did a joint review of the book and gave it a B: Elyse: This book was trope heaven for me. It’s got Country Boy vs City Girl, Unexpected Rescuer, Snowed In… It was like trope confetti. Amanda: Yes! Plus I’ve been on a cowboy kick lately and c’mon, did you see the size of that man’s Stetson on the cover? Admittedly, it was a slow start for me with the phone call and the info dumpage of character details. However once Ella and Gabe were in the same vicinity, the book really took off. Their interactions together were sincere, sweet, and addicting….

Sinful Rewards 12 – Hawke’s New Tattoo

Here’s a snippet from Sinful Rewards 12 *** Ed takes a step away from us. “What do you think?” Hawke bends over the small table. “That’s fine work.” “It’s one of my best.” The artist beams. “Let me see.” I wiggle in Hawke’s lap. He turns my palm upward and places his hand in mine. My breath catches. It can’t be. I close my eyes, count to five, open them. It is. Belinda is inked on the ring finger of his left hand, a band of letters declaring to the world that he belongs to me. “Hawke.” My eyes prick with unshed tears. “She doesn’t hate it,” Ed observes. “Hate it?” I carefully touch my military man’s fingertips, staring at my very visual claim on him. “I love it.” I love him. “You did this for me?” Hawke nods. Of course he did this for me. That’s my name on…

Review & Excerpt Tour: Hard To Let Go by Laura Kaye

Five dishonored soldiers. Former Special Forces. One last mission. These are the men of Hard Ink. Beckett Murda hates to dwell on the past. But his investigation into the ambush that killed half his Special Forces team and ended his Army career gives him little choice. Just when his team learns how powerful their enemies are, hard-ass Beckett encounters the biggest complication yet—seductive, feisty Katherine Rixey. A tough, stubborn prosecutor, Kat visits her brothers’ Hard Ink Tattoo following a bad break-up—and finds herself staring down the barrel of a stranger’s gun. Beckett is hard-bodied and sexy as hell, but he’s also the most infuriating man ever. Worse, Kat’s brothers are at war with criminals her office is investigating. When Kat joins the fight, she lands straight in Beckett’s sights—and his arms. Not to mention their enemies’ crosshairs. Now Beckett and Kat must set aside their differences to work together, because…
