Player by Sean Ashcroft Review
Player - Sean Ashcroft

Tennis player Isaac Hudson isn’t gay, but when a photograph of him kissing another man makes its way to social media, he doesn’t have the heart to correct the speculation and disappoint all the people it means so much to. Still recovering from a shoulder injury, he decides to play the part and enlists the help of his childhood best friend to be his temporary boyfriend.

Julian has been in love with Isaac since they were kids. Knowing his friend was off-limits helped him keep his feelings hidden, but now that he’s supposed to pretend to date him…

Well, things are getting a little tricky in the feelings department. 

After a few surprisingly intimate dates, it becomes obvious that Isaac is less interested in faking it and more interested in trying it.

Throw in a few steamy moments, and soon enough, Isaac finds himself falling into bed with his best friend.

But can Isaac figure out his feelings in time to see what’s right in front of him? Or will his player past come back to haunt him and take away his best chance at happiness?



As a sucker for both friends to lover and pretend dating, I picked this right up.

And its a nice quick read. Julian is wonderful and Isaac...well he isn't very self reflective. 

He is also a kind of crap friend but he does evolve and come to understandings about himself and what matters.

Julian is too good for him though but Isaac is what he wants so I am happy for him.

Review & Excerpt Tour with Giveaway! Stand & Deliver (Men of Haven #5) Rhenna Morgan!
Stand & Deliver - Rhenna Morgan



About the Book:


Title: Stand & Deliver
Author: Rhenna Morgan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 11th, 2018
Publisher: Carina Press
Series: Men of Haven
Format: Digital eBook / Print
Digital ISBN: B076ZV47MC
Print ISBN: 9781335948304

Live hard, f*ck harder and make their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six Men of Haven bleed by, taking what they want, always watching each other’s backs and loving the women they claim with unyielding tenderness and fierce

Security expert Beckett Tate has met his match in colleague Gia Sinclair. He longs to run his hands over each and every one of her lush curves. She’s wicked smart and wicked hot. He’s given her time to get used to the idea of “them,” but her time is up and he’s ready to go all in on claiming what’s his.


Despite her love of all things girlie, Gia’s no typical Southern belle. She’s built her skills and reputation in a field normally dominated by men, and now she has a kick-ass career she loves. She certainly doesn’t need a man to take care of her—especially not one who’s pure alpha. Still, Beckett’s the one man who can satisfy the desires she’s hidden under her tough exterior, and she’s hooked.


Letting Beckett take the lead in the bedroom comes naturally to Gia—not constantly proving herself to him professionally is more of a struggle. And when someone attacks her character and career, Gia and Beckett will have to find a balance: her willingness to let go just a little, with his trust in her abilities and his deep, primal need to protect his woman.



I just read a thrilling and passionate contemporary romance that had me falling hard and fast for the Men of Haven.


There is no doubt that bad boys are just hot and sexy, and Beckett Tate is definitely both of those, but he also has a vulnerable side that just made me want to snatch him up and cuddle, of course that might have been a bit difficult considering he fell for tough as nails, Gia. Both characters are strong and very compelling and easily connected to and their relationship is one full of emotional turbulence and a kind of “tip toe” through the minefields of their issues. Let me clarify, while the couple had issues, the author did a great job of bringing those issues to my attention and having the couple deal with them without overdoing them and making it seem impossible. The relationship moved at a believable pace and was full of electrifying chemistry and red hot passion.


Stand & Deliver is fast paced and full of thrills and suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat with twists and turns that kept me guessing. The plot had several intriguing conspiracies going on throughout so there was never a dull moment to be found. The story also had lots of intriguing secondary characters that rounded out the story and ensured that I want to get to know them all.


This is the first book that I have read by Rhenna Morgan and I just have to wonder how I managed to do that. Her world and characters are well developed and intriguing and the Men of Haven are just my type of bad boy – ones who play by their own rules. I am definitely going to be reading the previous books while I await the next book in the series.

As light as Gia was, getting her in the house was a breeze, and thanks to Knox, her alarm didn’t pose a problem either. Thank God, he’d actually convinced her to let his company be the one to install the system when she moved in. Otherwise, he’d have had a whole different set of problems to juggle.

Soft lamplight spilled from the corner of the living room, so Beckett aimed that direction and laid Gia out on the couch. Once settled, he crouched beside her and smoothed her hair away from her face.

The impact hit him instantly, the soft and silky strands jolting his amplified need for touch into high gear and tempting him like a junkie on a four-day dry spell. As out as she was, he could toy with the long strands and sample the skin on her face and neck for hours and she’d likely never remember a thing. The thing was, if he ever got the chance to touch her that way, he’d want her to remember. Would want to see the response in her eyes and learn how her body reacted to his touch.

He braced on hand on the couch above her head instead. The fabric was nowhere near as luxurious as her hair, but it was soft like the chairs he kept at his place and kept him from giving into touching where he shouldn’t.

That was the thing about people like him. Touch was everything. The thing he needed to stay in balance and keep his head and impulses in check. While his sensory processing disorder—or SPD—wasn’t as debilitating as it was for some people, he’d sure as hell learned not to underestimate it.

He leaned in and lowered his voice, knowing full well she probably wouldn’t hear or understand a word he said. “How about you chill here for a bit, gorgeous. Let me go get things ready for you upstairs.”

Gia moaned and rolled to one side, tucking her hands beneath her cheek.
He couldn’t help but chuckle. The pose was cute. Totally innocent and sweet. Which meant she’d be mortified if she had any clue he’d seen it. “I’m gonna take that for a yes.”

Release Day Review! Edge of Humanity (Only Human #5 / Kirsten O'Shea Universe) Candace Blevins!
Edge of Humanity - Candace Blevins



Book five of the ONLY HUMAN series...


Abbott agreed to let Kirsten seek revenge on Gavin, and she hopes doing so before she pulls away from the supernatural community will make others hesitant to come after Kirsten or her family.


Before Lauren goes away to college, Kirsten wants to be sure she’s done all she can to prepare her daughter. They take a trip to China, and Kirsten hopes she can get her old teacher to train her daughter. However, when they arrive, things aren’t as they should be.


In China, the Lion Dance and Dragon Dance are ubiquitous, and the Monkey King frequently plays a part in both. Kirsten is friends with the Lion King and Dragon King, and despite the fact this has nothing to do with the legendary Chinese lion or dragon, the implications are far-reaching once she’s back in China.


I went on a wonderfully enlightening and satisfying journey with Kirsten O’Shea and her daughter in Edge of Humanity which is the fifth book in the Only Human series.


I don’t know about everyone else, but I have never been too far from home and Kirsten’s trip to China provided me with lots of picturesque and intriguing views of the fascinating culture and landscape. Kirsten’s journey was one that was quite fast paced with lots of thrilling events and meetings with wonderfully eclectic and fascinating characters and there was a few chuckles to be found as well. But most of all Kirsten discovers more about herself and her abilities which may have far reaching consequences in her life back home.


Kirsten’s return and her trip to bring Lauren to Cambridge is just as exciting but in a more dangerous way as they are situations from the past that need to be made right and of course keeping Lauren safe from Kirsten’s enemies. Edge of Humanity is fast paced and a fascinating and thrilling adventure no matter where the story takes place and I also got to meet more interesting characters and there was an exciting battle where Kirsten’s new abilities become to known and in a spectacular way which of course just makes Kirsten even more intriguing. The story also has quite a bit of erotic lovemaking in it, although not quite as much as usual which is understandable.


Once again, Candace Blevins’ fascinating and well developed supernatural world full of wonderful characters was enthralling and kept me glued to the pages until the very end and as always I can’t wait for the next one, whether it’s from the Only Human, Chattanooga Supernaturals or the Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club, The Dark Underbelly and The Dark(ish) Fairytale series, because they are all thrilling books to read.

Blog Tour w/Review - Reckoning
We're celebrating the release of  RECKONING (Vincent & Eve #2) by Jessica Ruben! One-Click your copy and if you haven't purchased RISING, do it now while it's only $.99! 
Cover by: Okay Creations
NA, Contemporary Romance
Forgetting about Eve was the plan. Finding her at a party on my college campus was the last thing I expected.

But letting her go again isn’t an option—not this time. Juggling the life I want with the one I was born into may be near impossible, but for her, it's a risk I'm willing to take.

My world has turned into a house of cards, where one wrong move can send it all crashing down…and us with it.

Finally at a prestigious university—and on the path to living my dreams—I’ve left the darkness of the Blue Houses behind. Still, a whole new host of problems await me.

Vincent is here.

He's king of the school, complete with a society princess by his side. I thought I wanted to know what he was hiding, but unlocking his biggest secret leads me into entirely new territory laced with danger
and lust...one I’m not sure I’ll survive.

*RISING must be read before reading RECKONING.

Reckoning (Vincent and Eve #2)Reckoning by Jessica Ruben
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Eve was enjoying her time as a Freshman at Columbia University. She earned her scholarship here. The future as a lawyer is her dream, and she is almost there.

Vincent has no idea that Eve is going to turn up where he is finishing school. He is wrapped up in several things at the moment. All things he does not want to taint Eve with. How to have her and not mix those worlds?

Their love is very sexy and highly emotional. This story is high with the heat and very heartfelt. As the sparks fly in many directions, Vincent stresses out trying to keep his worlds apart so they do not collide. I am so excited for the conclusion and hope the author hurries!

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

Hold On
Playing Hurt - Kelly Jamieson

This is book #6, in the Aces Hockey series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and have a better understanding of this amazing series, I recommend reading these books in order.


Chase is definitely off this season.  Then it hits a bright spot when he strikes up a social media conversation with a celebrity.  His life now appeared to be on an upswing.


Jordyn is a busy person in her own right.  Also a hockey fan, she loves the Aces since she grew up near them.  Talking to Chase is a bright spot in her life too.


This was such a sweet and sexy story.  I loved the characters, and honestly did not want to let go of them at the end of this book.  I found this to be a prefect fit for the series, and a great hockey based romance.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!



***This ARC copy was given by Netgalley and its publisher, in return for an honest review.
