From New York Times bestselling author Emily Goodwin comes a sexy standalone romance about a single dad who has sworn off women and the nanny who is faced with the biggest con she has ever pulled, not falling in love.
Side Hustle by Emily Goodwin is live!
Side Hustle ebook cover.jpg
When Scarlet Cooper takes a new job as a nanny, she assumes she’s going to work for the rich couple who hired her. But instead of pulling up to their million-dollar estate, she finds herself on the front porch of a humble farmhouse, looking into the eyes of dark and brooding single dad, Weston Dawson.
It’s bad enough that Weston doesn’t have a fortune to charm out of him, but he’s also a cop. After marrying his high school sweetheart only to have her up and leave weeks after their baby was born, Weston has sworn off women for life. All that matters now is taking care of his son, Jackson.
If anyone can break down the tough exterior of the former soldier, it’s Scarlet. But just when she’s close to getting exactly what she wants, she’s faced with a whole new challenge, which just might be the biggest con she’s ever pulled: pretending she doesn’t love him.

My Review
5 Stars
Side Hustle by Emily Goodwin is book Three in the Dawson Family series. This is the story of Scarlet Cooper and Weston Dawson. I haven't yet read the previous books, so for me this was a standalone book. Scarlet has to walk on the wrong side and do some hustling to get money to take care of her dad. Thinking her next job will be for a rich family she ends up with the totally opposite of that. Weston is a single father who wife up and left him and his son. Now working towards running for sheriffs and trying to make a better life for his family. Scarlet is finding that she is the one getting taken but having her heart given two Weston and Jackson.
Really enjoyed their story!

My Review:
5 Stars
Heavy Equipment by Skye Warren is book 2.5 in the Trust Fund Duet.  This is the story of Asher Cook and June Li.  Asher Cook, the construction foreman from Survival of the Richest but this can be a standalone book if you wish to do so. 
Asher has a way about him that makes you weak even when he is being heavy handed which happens a lot with June.  June is the innocent sacrifice that goes toward paying off her father's debts.  Asher takes what he wants and he goes to get it...leads him to June.
This was another hot quick read by Ms. Warren.  Ms. Warren knows how to burn up your books and kindles!

Release Blitz - Block Shot

BlockShotRBBanner.jpg

 

“Kennedy Ryan’s writing continues to amaze and inspire. She is a genius wordsmith and a prose poet. And in Banner Morales, she has created the perfect heroine for this day and age. Don’t miss this read. It’s everything.” — Emma Scott, Bestselling Author

KRBlockShotBookCover5x8_MEDIUM.jpg

 

JARED

 

If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat...

 

The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.

 

Her anger is...arousing.

 

Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth,

gets me...well, you know.

 

If I had a dollar for every time she's put me in my place, I'd be an even richer man.

I'm a successful sports agent because I assume "no" means you'll think about it.

 

I'm sure what you meant to say is "Coming right up.”

 

They say even rich men don't always get what they want,

but those men don't know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.

 

Take Banner. She assumes she's winning, but this game?

 

 

She doesn't even know how to play.

 

 

BANNER

 

If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.

 

One night. One epic fail. One dollar...and I'm out.

 

I've moved on.

 

I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.

 

 

Anything they can do, I have done better.

 

They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.

 

And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?

 

Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.

 

I'll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.

 

Oh, I didn't say the struggle wasn't real.

 

But I've got that one dollar, and Jared won't have me.

Blog Tour w/Review - Julien

SBPRBANNER-Julien-bT.jpg

 

Confessions: Julien, book two in the steamy contemporary MMM Confessions Series from Ella Frank, is available NOW!

 

 

Confessions JULIEN AMAZON copy.jpeg

 

 

Synopsis:

 

People are complex.

Love a double-edged sword.

And when it comes to a broken heart, there are no rules, only time…

 

For the past eight years, Julien Thornton has been living with a secret. One that only a handful of people know about.

 

To the outside world, he has it all.

A thriving career. A loving husband. And a face that the American public fell for by the millions, on a reality show that inadvertently saved his life.

 

But behind the shine of celebrity, behind the easygoing nature, a crippling truth fills Julien with pain and self-loathing. It’s a truth that he fights to overcome daily with the help of his husband, Joel Priestley, and now their boyfriend, Robbie Bianchi.

 

But unlike Priest, Robbie doesn’t know what he’s helping Julien to fight. He doesn’t know what Julien did all those years ago. And with the anniversary of his sister’s death fast approaching, the time for explanations is running out.

 

And thus the question: will the princess be able to forgive the prick as the priest once did?

 

Only time will tell.

 

 

 

Excerpt:

 

Chapter One

 

CONFESSION

 

 

Those who are meant to be yours will always find you. “WE MEET again, Mr. Thornton.” A shiver of awareness raced up Julien Thornton’s spine as he stood in the jail cell of a downtown L.A. police station where he’d been thrown around an hour ago for public intoxication. He didn’t need to turn to know who was on the opposite side of those steel bars. That voice was the one he’d been hoping to hear when he’d made his “one call” and left a message after a generic voicemail. That voice? It had been on his mind since the last time he’d heard it, nearly two weeks earlier when he’d met—and attempted to steal the car of—a man who called himself Priest.

 

Julien pivoted on his heels, and when he did, he realized that he’d grossly underestimated the impact that Joel Priestley had had on him the first time around. Oui, he hadn’t been able to stop thinking about him, that was true, and oui, he might’ve purposely provoked the police officer tonight hoping he’d end up needing a lawyer. But Dieu, he’d forgotten the way Priest made his body respond. Like an inferno was licking through his veins. With auburn hair, stormy eyes, and a presence that Julien gravitated toward like a magnetic force, he didn’t think anything could prepare a person for the powerful energy Priest exuded. Not to mention that cool, judgmental stare of his. But Julien had no one to blame for that judgment but himself. Maybe if they didn’t always meet at the end of one of his week-long benders, he could have the upper hand with this man for once. And wouldn’t that be délicieux, he thought, as he looked at the lawyer who’d dropped him home two weeks before, instead of at the police station like he’d originally threatened. Priest was as put together now, at three in the morning, as he had been that afternoon in the alley. Suited up in a tailored navy number that framed his broad shoulders and emphasized the rich color of his hair, he looked sharp, controlled, and dangerous to Julien’s already unstable state of mind as he stood there sizing him up with an unreadable expression.

 

“I’m curious,” Priest finally said, as he clasped his hands behind his back and took a step closer to the cell where Julien had spent most of the night sobering up. “Did you not understand me the last time we spoke?”

 

Julien clenched his jaw and wondered if Priest realized how condescending he sounded when he spoke—or just how much it turned Julien on. “Non. I understood just fine.”

 

“Then what part of ‘I won’t be so lenient next time’ made you think that calling me to bail you out of here was a good idea?” Julien was still trying to work that out himself, but thought it might have something to do with the fact that he was drawn to this man. There was something about Priest that made him feel alive, when all he’d felt for months now was dead inside.

 

When Julien didn’t respond, Priest cocked his head, studying him closely, the disapproval rolling off him in waves. “Are you that hard up for a date that this was the only way you could think to get one?”

 

Putain, the man was arrogant. But for reasons Julien couldn’t explain, that seemed to make him all the more appealing. “You’re the one who gave me your card the last time we met. Perhaps it’s you who are hard up for a date, monsieur. Giving your number out to—”

 

“Criminals?” Priest frowned. “No. That’s called smart business acumen, considering I’m a criminal attorney.”

 

Julien scoffed. “I’m hardly a criminal.”

 

“Really?” Priest said, and took his time examining the six-by-eight space Julien currently stood in. He then leaned forward and said in a lowered voice, “Your current situation tells a different kind of story.”

 

Despite his “current situation,” and the reason he’d gotten himself into it, Julien felt his lips curve, and he realized exactly why he was drawn to Priest. He possessed the one thing that Julien had been looking for—the ability to take his mind off the black hole his life had become. “Maybe it’s le destin.”

 

“And what does that mean? Destiny?” Priest straightened and brought his arm around to check the time. “I doubt destiny has anything to do with it. A more likely scenario is that I was your only option.”

 

“Even if that’s true,” Julien said as he wrapped his fingers around the bars, “you came anyway.”

 

“As I said before, it’s my job.”

 

“At three in the morning?”

 

“At any hour of the morning,” Priest said, and then looked down the hallway that was devoid of anything other than dreary off-white tiles and horribly bright fluorescent lighting. “I’m going to go and see if I can get you out, and then you and I are going to have a talk.”

 

Something about the way Priest said you and I made Julien’s pulse race, and as Priest went to walk away, Julien whispered, “J’ai vraiment hâte,” and the ever-so-serious lawyer stopped in his tracks and looked back. This time when those eyes roamed over Julien, his breath caught. There was nothing cool about that stare now. There was heat, interest, and an intensity that made Julien’s fingers tighten around the bars before Priest cut the connection and walked away.

 

Julien watched him go until he disappeared around the end of the hall, and then he released his breath on a rush. Merde. He’d never been so attracted to someone in all his life, and as he stood there waiting for Priest to save him yet again, Julien knew he needed to stop what he was thinking. There was no way in hell he deserved someone like that. Non, no way at all. That didn’t, however, stop him from counting down the minutes until Priest returned to him…

Julien (Confessions #2)Julien by Ella Frank
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the Confessions series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and have a better understanding of the series, I recommend reading this series in order.

Julien has past that still haunts him. The family parts, the career decisions, and more. Now, with his relationships with Priest & Robbie this year may have a silver lining in it. Now, if only he can find it before he loses all that he has gained.

This book moves quickly. The story is so compelling, both with the relationships and the pain from before that must be overcome. I love watching these characters come together and learn to be in sync. I cannot wait to see the next installment about Priest!
