The Dirty Bits from Carina Press give you what you want, when you want it. Designed to be read in an hour or two, these sex-filled microromances are guaranteed to pack a punch and deliver a happily-ever-after.

A new supersexy insta-love novella from USA TODAY bestselling author Jenika Snow that has a gruff lumberjack yelling T-I-M-B-E-R for the woman he’s been waiting for.

The Ash Brothers—they know how to handle their wood.

I’m a hard man. A loner. Or so town gossip says. After having my heart sent through the chipper, I’ve kept to myself. I prefer the quiet of the woods to the ramblings of clingy women who think they can tame a wild mountain man.

Until Mia. Now she’s all I think about.

I should have stayed away. She’s too sweet for a brute like me, but I can’t stop wanting her, picturing her sated in my sheets.

Mia knows just what kind of wood I’m working with. She’s the soft to my hard, the sugar to my bitter bark.

And I love seeing her walk on the wild side.

This book is approximately 15,000 words

For those times when size does matter. The Dirty Bits from Carina Press: Quick and dirty, just the way we like it.
Lets start of saying that this story started off with a bang and a sizzle.This was one of those instant attraction instant love stories.Noah and Mia are instantly attracted to one another and the sexual fantasies they are having with one another are super super hot!
Noah has been hurt by a lover in the past an has been withdrawn and keeps to himself but, spotting Mia something has awaken in him after a very long time when things have pretty much been dormant.Mia on the other hand has been struggling of late with her own unhappiness and she is hoping this move is going to improve things for her. Spotting Noah across the room at a diner definitely puts a smile on her face and some pink in her cheeks! Instant attraction and heated looks hell yeah!
This stories plot was interesting.This couple had more fantasies with each other and more sex in they heads prior to actually meeting one another and I have to say their sexual fantasies were smokin!
For me I enjoyed the characters they were very like-able but the story itself didn't really give you a chance to love them.I enjoyed this short story as the story started out as super hot.I am okay with the instant love story but, a writer for me anyway is suppose to carry that attraction and intenseness and that possessiveness they feel for each other and somewhere along the middle of the story I felt that all flame die out after their first sexual encounter.
For me the sexual fantasies each had with one another was hotter than the deed itself.Then after the deed its two weeks later.Something happened in the middle here and they lost me.I guess for me I missed the couple getting to know each other on paper all the things your are learning about your sexual partner .The fun the playfulness the heated looks etc.I think the author should have added something  to that effect in the middle of the story.Two weeks later you understood they are getting to know one another but, we are not seeing it on paper.For me the story would have been more enjoyable had the author carried through with the spark,sizzle, and fireworks as the say  to the very end.
3 stars from us
Personal note: Even though this story was not a top favorite I have enjoyed many other of this author stories that she has co written with other authors.I would like to read more about these Ash brothers so were are looking forward to that.

Hard Road by J.B. Turner
Hard Road - J.B. Turner

*** copy provided by publisher through NetGalley ***

I'm quite a fan of suspense/thriller novels (even without the romance aspect) if they're written well. Unfortunately this one wasn't.

The premise was good and at first it did look promising, but the overly descriptive narrative style ruined it. It was all about what the characters wore, what they ate, what roads they took...On and on and on it went until it got so bothersome it overshadowed the story.

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Hard to Let Go (Haven's Cove #1) by Jaclyn Quinn
Hard to Let Go: A Haven's Cove Novel - Jaclyn Quinn
Owen Richards lives a quiet life in his small hometown of Haven’s Cove. He has a rewarding life consisting of three very supportive—not to mention feisty—women, and a successful bakery that he owns and absolutely loves. Yet, Owen can't seem to shake this emptiness inside or the intense feeling that something is missing. A sudden encounter with a man from his past, one he despises, turns his entire world upside down. When Owen finds himself attracted to that sexy man, he questions everything, including his sanity. After all, only an incredibly disturbed person would find that he can’t stop thinking about his high school bully.
Brody Walker never expected to return to Haven’s Cove. He’s made a life for himself in Boston where he can truly be the person he was always meant to be. But an unexpected call has Brody facing all the demons he’d left behind so long ago. Now, he’s faced with not only a difficult goodbye, but one long overdue apology to a man who is no longer that lanky kid from high school. The challenge is to convince the guy he’s changed—and also prove he’s worth taking a chance on.

When passions ignite, truths are exposed, changing beliefs these men have held on to for years. Faced with the knowledge that things aren’t always what they seem, will they choose to hold on to the incredible thing they’ve found…or is it easier to give in to the fear and let go?

Release Day Review! Hard Pursuit (Delta Force Brotherhood # 3) Sheryl Nantus
Hard Pursuit (Delta Force Brotherhood) - Sheryl Nantus



Trey Pierce has spent years helping the Brotherhood, using his computer skills to dig out secrets and help deliver justice. But there's one mission he's yet to finish–– finding out who killed his best friend. A chance meeting with Ally Sheldon gives him a new lead, one that comes with some baggage. 

Executive Ally Sheldon has to find her wayward brother if she wants to save her company. Pretending like nothing is wrong is getting to her. But when the sexy Trey is assigned to her to help her case, focusing on what's most important is difficult. 

Never in his life has Trey been more attracted to a woman, but she’s hiding something. And that something may just destroy them.




This is the first book that I have read in the Delta Force Brotherhood series so let first let me tell you that it can be read as a standalone and the author does a great job of arousing reader’s curiosity about all the characters in the Brotherhood and the previous books, so be prepared to want to read them all.  The plot is set at a steady pace with lots of suspenseful events that keep readers glued to the pages and caught up in the events as there are a few twists and turns and Trey’s mission to deliver justice complicates things which adds suspense and emotional drama to the story.


The characters are strong and compelling easily drawing readers in and refusing to let go. The attraction between Trey and Ally sizzles with heat and passion but their romance is an emotionally turbulent one as both characters’ lives are complicated and pull them in different directions and there are quite a few emotional and sensitive choices that add to the suspense of whether this couple will have a happily ever after or not.


I have read other books by Sheryl Nantus but they were of the paranormal variety, so when I saw this one I decided to give it a shot and I was not disappointed. The author brings her world to life with well written words that paints vivid images of her world and characters which it makes it easy for the reader to become caught up in their lives and the plot. I have added the first two books in the series to my TBR and I am looking forward to reading more in this series.



Hard Pursuit is the 3rd book in the Delta Force Brotherhood series.



Hard Pursuit is available in ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   Kobo   iBooks   GPlay   eBooks

Hard To Let Go
Hard to Let Go: A Haven's Cove Novel - Jaclyn Quinn


Impressive. Honestly, if I had been handed this book and known nothing about this author (which I honestly know very little) I would never have guessed that this was her first book.  This was so fantastic.


A childhood bully/bullied, enemies to lovers story, this one had all the buildup I look for.  The kissing was scorching hot and honestly the entire relationship developed amazingly well.


While I started out feeling this had similarities to another recent book I have read, this steered quickly into new territory and the story grew quite beautifully.  Brody’s childhood and his relationship with his mother was just heartbreaking. But the love and devotion that transpired tapped into the feels something hard.  Phew.  I was a mess.


For the first time in Owen’s memory, the long table his grandfather built over 40 years ago, was filled with family-blood and chosen.


Family indeed.  This had such a strong sense of family. Of love.  Of commitment. And of support. These moments were simply beautiful.


I have heard more is to come from this author and eagerly await more on Jonah.  He was a quiet force but so compassionate and strong.  And Gabe…wow!  Look out.  I am so in love with this character.  His style, his wit and his love for Brody was written perfectly.  In addition, the banter with Leslie was just so well done and genuine.  Every scene felt real. 


I adored the aunts, the mothers and even sweet and confused Nate.  Cannot wait to see more from this guy as well.


Overall, I adored every moment of this book and cannot find one thing to complain about. LOL


** Highly Recommended**
