On Duty By A.R. Barley 99 cents!
On Duty (Smoke & Bullets) - A.R. Barley

Number one rule for a firefighter: never take your eyes off the flame. Male/male author A.R. Barley is back with a new contemporary romance series.

Former marine and seasoned firefighter Troy Barnes has always kept his sex life on the down low, until he takes back-to-back hits: physically injured in a suspicious warehouse explosion and emotionally blindsided when he’s ditched by his boyfriend. When a flirty young paramedic offers him a place to crash, Troy’s not so willing to give in. He’s never needed help before. But if anyone can break through his tough-guy act, it’s Alex Tate.

Alex has crushed on Troy since the minute he saw him. Now here he is, stripped of his turnout gear and recuperating in Alex’s bed. The tattooed hero may be a fantasy-come-true, but Alex wants more than rebound sex—and he’s not sure Troy’s ex is gone or forgotten.

As each night brings them closer together, Troy realizes there’s more to Alex than he’d ever imagined. And with an arsonist loose in Manhattan, neither he nor Alex realizes just how combustible things are going to get.

Starting now
On Duty (Smoke & Bullets) - A.R. Barley

Troy has one thing happen after another.  When a really bad situation turns good thanks to a new roommate, he tries to settle into a new routine.  If he finds his friend attractive, does that make him a bad person?


Alex was interested in Troy from the moment he saw him.  Getting him moved in was just a bonus.  He is hoping they can both overcome the past, and make a bright future together.


This book was really such a bright spot.  I was pleased the characters had such a banter, that they came across as a couple right away.  The main hero was just fun to read.  I loved the humor and the real pieces to the story that made it fit just right.  This author is always a go to purchase, and this was this author's best work yet!  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Chasing His Cottontail
Chasing His Cottontail - A.R. Barley Chasing His Cottontail - A.R. Barley A cute read. I wish there had been more on shifter dynamics (the bunnies, the wolves, and other creatures). The author made a nice intro to her world of shifters. They were unique and I really was curious about what made each shifter special (i.e. the bunnies reproducing, making them wanted commondities among the wolf shifters). I'm looking forward to reading the next installment and seeing what direction the author takes.

Blog Tour w/Review - Barely Undercover

Barely Undercover (Legal Heat Book 2)

by Sarah Castille



Date of Publication: December 3, 2016




With passion at full throttle, there's no turning back...


Legal Heat Series

When private investigator Lana Parker follows a dangerous biker into an underground sex club, James Hunter is the last man she expects to see. But there he is, all dark looks and chiseled charms, ready to break her heart all over again.
Danger is the name of the game for an undercover cop. And the last thing James wants is for the fiery beauty to come anywhere near the notorious biker gang he's trying to take down. Yet Lana has no intention of giving up her case, which means he'll have to keep her close to keep her safe. A risky proposition--especially when their blazing sexual chemistry reignites an unforgettable passion.

But when a dark terror emerges from the past, Lana goes on the run...and James gives up everything to save her. Backed into a corner, Lana must face her fears, including the one thing that frightens her most...her overwhelming feelings for the man whose searing glance sparks her most hidden desires, the man she should not trust, but cannot resist.

Warning: The book contains violence, heavy swearing, motorcycle sexytimes, bad-ass biker naughtytimes, and an exceptionally hot hero who will get down and dirty anywhere but under the covers.


Available From:



James caught a pair of green lace panties midtoss. “I remember these,” he said, musing. “I thought I tore them off you.”


Heart pounding, pulse racing, body tense, Lana snatched the panties from his hand. What the hell was he doing here? Hadn’t she made it clear last night was the one and only night? Did he not get the message?


I believe I uninvited you from my apartment,” she said, her voice cold. “I don’t see your feet moving.”


Silence. She followed his concerned gaze to her suitcase.


Are you going away?” He tapped the suitcase with his finger, and his voice rose from low to midrange. “Are you leaving because of me?”


Don’t flatter yourself.” She sighed. “I have things to do and places to be. A life that doesn’t involve you. If you recall, you made it very clear you didn’t want to see me around the clubhouse again, which I took to mean around you.”


You’re the one who said it was a mistake.” James paced across the room. Although her bedroom wasn’t small, he managed to take up almost all the space.


And you’re the one who didn’t disagree,” Lana snapped. “So now that we have that sorted, you can be on your way.”


Not until I find out if you’re packing or unpacking. And if you’re packing, where are you going?” He frowned and looked over at the bed. “Jackie?”


Jackie shrugged. “I have half a story and I’m sworn to secrecy. I can say she thought someone might be after her and I recommended she contact a certain police officer we know. However, I have since convinced her she might be delusional.”


Jackie.” Lana gave her friend a warning glare.


All traces of humor disappeared from James’s face. “Who’s after you?”


Lana ignored him and continued to slam panties back into her drawer. Why was he here? They were done. He had made that abundantly clear by his silence after sending Rex out of his room. He had watched her dress, led her outside, warned her away and pecked her on the cheek. No discussion. No talking. No trying to convince her she was wrong. If that wasn’t a brush-off, she didn’t know what was.


Lana, I want an answer. Now.” The tone of his voice—forceful, commanding—touched the last of her raw nerves. She rounded on him, drawing in a deep breath as she prepared to berate him for daring to speak to her like that.


And then he kissed her. His firm mouth closed over hers, taking her so deeply, so swiftly, she melted into his arms.


Sweet. Gentle. Tender… Concerned.


Angry tears welled in her eyes. “I hate it when you do that.”



Barely Undercover (Legal Heat, #2)Barely Undercover by Sarah Castille
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book # 2, in the Legal Heat series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, understand characters, and have more fun with the series, I suggest reading these in order.

Roxie AKA Lana has a checkered past full of pain and secrets. She meets up with James AKA ICE again, and it is like they never parted. The heat and the sparks surrounding them just burn up the pages!

ICE has gained a reputation of not needing anyone. Being undercover long-term meant no one could know where he was or what he was doing. He has secrets from the past as well.

This book is a scorcher! I loved the characters interaction. The supporting best friends were fun and full of humor and were a great add to the story. This series continues to surprise and delight.

New taste
Outside the Lines (The Boundaries Series) - A.R. Barley

This is the 3rd book in the Boundaries series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding of the characters in the series, I recommend reading this series in order.


Mitch meets a sexy drag queen at a club, and then chickens out on meet her later.  Then he sees her again next door..... as his daughters princess.  Can he convince his neighbor that he is the real deal?


Chi-Chi has had enough with the wrong men.  Too many times they want only one thing and Chi-Chi wants more.  With much to offer, he is ready to find the one.  


So sweet and fun.  There was so much in this story for everyone.  I definitely laughed, cried and rooted for these two to get together.  This series just has so much heat and heart.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
