What would you do if you had a one-night stand which resulted in the most amazing sex of your life? You’d want more, right? That’s what Angela wants, too, but unfortunately, the next morning she must return to University in Australia. So, she leaves Brad a note, hoping he’d contact her. But he never does. What a jerk.


Five years later, having finished her degree, Angela plans to celebrate with her friends at their favourite drinking spot. However, when she enters, she’s shocked to see Brad sitting at the bar. Summoning all of her courage, she says hello, and, in an instant, the spark between them rekindles. Problem is, this time, Brad’s only in Australia one more day. Spending what little time remains together, Angela can’t deny that he’s the only one for her. And with time running out, she realizes she must tell him the truth of her heart.


Will fate let them find a way to be together forever, or are they always destined to part ways?

Book Tour - Unlucky in Love

Unlucky in Love
A.J. Renee

Publication date: January 30th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


Lucky in Love.


That’s the name of the dating app I picked, hoping to find Mr. Better Than Average so I can hold off planning my future as a cat lady.


I’ve been distracted eyeballing a tall, dark, and handsome Latin hottie who works in the library with me. He is way out of my league, and a woman has needs if you know what I mean.

Finding a man shouldn’t be hard when all I have to do is swipe left or right. It’ll weed out the slimy men who have Bad Date written all over them.

Yeah, I’m learning quickly that I’m rather unlucky in love after all. The men I pick need warning labels, kissing lessons, and a good talking-to about manners.


Should I throw in the towel, or will this series of bad dates be exactly what I need to win Mr. Right?

Author Interview with Author, A.J. Renee




  1. What was your favorite book in your youth?

I loved reading the Babysitter’s Club.


  1. Do you write to music or make music playlists for your works?

It depends on my mood. I created my first playlist for Unlucky in Love.


  1. Your degrees and education are quite impressive. What started the urge to write?

Thanks. I’ve always had a creative streak but never imagined I’d be a writer. My best friend passed suddenly, and a story popped in my head that wouldn’t shut up until I wrote it. Widower’s Aura was the product of my grief and it set me on my current path.


  1. What are you hoping your writing/this book will impress upon your readers?

Unlucky in Love is about hope. Izzy left the dating game and decides to give things a try again. The outcome isn’t what she expects and just as she considers giving up she’s surprised. Life is full of surprises. You don’t always find love where you expect it or when you want it. Don’t lose hope.


  1. Will you share something with our readers that you have never shared with anyone else?

I’m a pretty open person so this is hard! Not a clever fact but no one knows… Izzy’s boss in Unlucky in Love was inspired by my old boss doing that same job.


  1. Do you have another genre you want to write but have not tried yet?

I love reading romance novels, so I don’t see myself leaving the genre as a writer. Maybe one day an idea will form for a novel in Horror?


  1. What most influences your books?

Life. People I meet or see spurn the ideas. Sometimes out on a run something will come out of nowhere and I’m forced to stop and jot it down in my phone.


  1. Where is a fan best to find you online?

I’m on a variety of social media, but I’m the most active on Facebook or my reader group, St. Fleur Belles.

Listen to an Excerpt & Purchase at Audible





Derek Vaughn is a little too serious. He’s a type A control personality with a penchant for order and a love of water polo. But he’s determined to enjoy his last year of college. The real world with a serious job and big expectations can wait for a few months. He’s going soak up every minute on campus with his friends and teammates before he moves on. The only possible kink in his plan is the new guy on the team… also known as his nemesis.

Gabe Chadwick has big Olympic dreams. His transfer between Southern California universities has nothing to do with scholastics. The degree is his backup plan. He’s not there to party or make friends. And he certainly isn’t going to announce his sexuality. But he can’t deny there’s something special about the uptight team captain. However, when an unwitting friendship and mutual attraction collide, both will have to decide if this is the real thing or if they’re about to lose it all in the deep.



Out in the Deep (Out in College, #1)Out in the Deep by Lane Hayes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gabe has changed schools for the benefit of getting ready for the Olympics. With finishing his last year of college, he knows it is time to get ready to move on and make his life happen. Being attracted to the team captain was not in his plan.

Derek wants his last year of college to be full of great memories. He plans to do his best, to be the best, and a new teammate that he does not get a long with was not in his plan. Gabe changes things for Derek. Almost right away he is not the same.

Being explosive right from the start, these two men are in each others pockets almost right away. No wanting to get along, and not wanting to be attracted to one another, they cannot find chemistry that is nearly electrocuting themselves. With decisions to make, and places to be they finally give in to their feelings and must decide how to tackle the future if they are to be together.

Narrated by Michael Pauley, I love the voice inflections and changes that tell you that there are new voices talking. I really loved listening to the book even more than reading it. It made me feel like I was right there in the room with the characters. This is the beginning of a great series, and I am excited to listen to the rest of the books that are coming.

***This early copy has been given in exchange for an honest review.

Title: Out in the End Zone, Out in College #2
Author: Lane Hayes  
Publisher: Lane Hayes  
Narrated by: Michael Pauley
Release Date: January 23rd, 2019
Heat Level: 4 - Lots of Sex  
Pairing: Male/Male  
Length: 4 hrs and 58 mins  
Genre: Romance, New Adult, Bisexual, College romance, Football, Coming out






Evan di Angelo is an upbeat, good-natured goofball who loves his friends and family… and football. A traumatic accident may have ended his hopes of playing professionally, but he’s made the most of his four years on the field at a small Southern California college. He’s learned the hard way to embrace change, take chances and try things outside of his comfort zone...like agreeing to play fake boyfriends for someone else’s senior project.

Mitch Peterson knows that being his authentic self is the path to true happiness. He’s grown from a shy, quiet kid from a broken home to an out and proud budding internet sensation bound for grad school. An awesome senior project is the key. It’s unlikely anyone will believe the hunky, straight athlete is Mitch’s new lover, but it’s worth a shot. However, as their tentative friendship blossoms into unexpected attraction, the lines between reality and fiction blur for both men. Evan is forced to face old demons and decide if he has the courage to take the next step and come out in the end zone.





Out in the End Zone (Out in College #2)Out in the End Zone

by Lane Hayes

This is book #2 in the Out In College series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding of the series, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Evan and Mitch have mutual friends. They are often at parties and places together with their friends in common. When Mitch's project gives them reason to be together more often, Evan jumps at the chance.

Mitch is not sure what to think. He is grateful he has found someone open enough to the possibilities that he can finally get the test results for his project to be done. At the same time, he is incredibly attracted to Evan.

This to me, is a wonderful add to the series, as well as this author's finest book yet. I found the characters charming. Their story felt very real. I sure hope this is made into a movie. Would love to see this on the big screen. Narrated by Michael Pauley, it is a joy to listen to. He changes the sounds of the voices and makes it easy to tell whom is speaking. I found this to be a great addition to the Out In College series.

Book Blitz - Kissing Princeton Charming

Kissing Princeton Charming
C.M. Seabrook & Frankie Love

Publication date: January 17th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


We have reputations for a reason.





Spencer Beckett:


Princeton Charming.



Ivy League Playboy.


Rich AF.





Charlotte Hayes:


Campus sweetheart.





Working her booty off to get through this last semester.


When a bet pushes these two together it’s fire and ice … and Charlotte is melting.




But Charlotte has a chip on her shoulder. She doesn’t believe that fairy tales exists in the real world.


One kiss tells her this is a bad idea.


Two kisses tells her he’s too good to be true.


Three kisses and she’s royally screwed.


Spencer Beckett might be everyone else’s Prince Charming but can he sweep this princess off her feet.

Goodreads / Amazon









His eyes are bright, like he sees something he likes, something he wants. It takes me a moment to realize that thing is me.


His hand cups my cheek. “You are an enigma, Charlie Hayes.”


I draw in a tight breath. “And you are very smooth.”


Wait, how does he know my last name? Or for that matter where I live. This whole thing is unnerving.


“You like smooth?” His mouth is so close. His lips practically on mine.


God, I want him. But warning bells blare in my head. I should tell him to leave. Instead, I stutter over words, “I’ve never had smooth.” It’s the truth. I’ve had boys kiss me who didn’t know what they were doing, sloppy and unremarkable. I’ve had guys kiss me who were desperate and trying way too hard.


But Spencer Beckett is neither a high school boy nor a clingy college guy. He is something else entirely. He knows what to do as he lifts my chin ever so slightly. As he licks his lips, tempting me to lick my own. His eyes search mine and for a moment I feel found — or at least seen.


“You said yes before,” he rasps, blue eyes searching mine.


I whimper, “I…”


“I’m going to kiss you now, Charlie.” His head lowers, and his lips brush against mine before I have a chance to change my mind.


One kiss and I know I’m in trouble.


One taste and I know my resolve is gone.

Blog Tour w/Review - Wrong Bed Right Roommate

Wrong Bed, Right Roommate
Rebecca Brooks

Published by: Entangled: Brazen
Publication date: January 14th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

It’s not every day you wake up to a stranger getting into your bed.

Only, he isn’t a stranger at all, he’s my best friend’s hot older brother…and apparently my new roommate.

Having him in my space, driving me crazy, isn’t a problem at all. Nope.
All I need to do is keep control of the situation…


But that’s easier said than done.

Shawn Lassiter is the kind of distraction I don’t need.

First he accidentally gets into my bed, half-naked, the night before my first day at my new job.

Hello, muscles and tattoos!

Then he’s there, in nothing but a towel, making me coffee in the morning.
It’s more than any girl can resist. Right?

But Shawn is off-limits, even if his eyes are saying differently.


Years ago, back when I still had my crush, he destroyed friendships with his reckless playboy antics.

There’s no way I’m touching those perfectly formed abs now. I don’t care how nice and responsible he’s acting.

I don’t want a boyfriend anyway. That’s what my trusty vibrator is for.

I’m the smart girl—the glasses-wearing, book-reading workaholic. I can totally do this.

After all, it’s only for two and a half months.

I’ll be on my best behavior…even if Shawn isn’t.


Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / Kobo / iBooks




Don’t look at him. Don’t think about him. Don’t even make eye contact.


Jessie gave herself the best pep talk she could before she opened her bedroom door the next morning.


So she’d had an explosive orgasm fantasizing about her roommate, who she’d known for years and who was completely off-limits. She could be totally normal running into him again.


Normal, non-sexual, focused, friendly, and roommate-like. Not at all as though she’d imagined lifting her legs in the air as he drilled into her, grabbing his tight ass to make him fuck her harder while she screamed his name in his ear.


Nope, none of that had ever occurred to her. She might as well be a nun for how chaste she was. She went to work, came home, did more work at home, and went to bed. If Shawn asked her what she did last night, obviously that was all she’d say. Without blushing. Or stammering. Or fainting at his feet.


If she even saw him—which she was seriously hoping she wouldn’t. She hadn’t heard him come in last night, which meant it must have been late. There was no way he’d be up this early, anyway.


She grabbed a clean towel from her closet. She’d shower, get dressed, and then make coffee once she was totally put together. Even though their little breakfast date wasn’t going to happen again, she didn’t want to risk hanging around in her pajamas.


Don’t worry, you’re not going to see him, she reminded herself. But just as she swung open her door, there he was, opening his door at the exact same time.


She jumped in surprise.


“Sorry,” he said with a sleepy smile. “Didn’t mean to startle you.”


“I wasn’t—” she started, fumbling over her words.


It didn’t help that he was wearing nothing but a towel wrapped low around his waist, exposing the full glory of his chest, his pecs, that wild tattoo across his shoulder, and the line of hair below his navel that she hadn’t been able to stop thinking about last night.


Put on some goddamn clothes! she wanted to scream.


Instead, she cleared her throat and tried again.


“I didn’t think you’d be up,” she said as smoothly as possible, even though her heart was fluttering like it had wings.


“Did you sleep well?” he asked.


She could have sworn his eyes crinkled and looked away, just past her shoulder instead of at her.


Or maybe that was how she was looking at him, peeking through the doorway behind him since she was afraid that if she made eye contact, she’d go up in flames.


I slept great after fantasizing about you fucking me hard while I came on my vibrator, a teasing voice sang in her head.







Wrong Bed, Right RoommateWrong Bed, Right Roommate by Rebecca Brooks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jessie and Shawn have known one another for a long time, since he is her best friend's older brother. She has tried hard to not be attracted to the player. She even promised her friend she was not interested.

Shawn does not even remember the little friend his sister has had for so long. He just needs a place to crash, since he starts a new job in such a foreign place as New York. The lust he feels for her suddenly is not welcome.

This book is what one would call a slow burn. I love that they can find common ground. I found the characters to be full of heart, heat, and a fun joy to read. I am excited to see more of what will come in this series.

Author Bio:


Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx.


Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind to try something new–and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn’t know they’d been missing.
