Blurb
As a former Army Ranger who works for a high intelligence, private security company, I’ve seen my fair share of death, betrayal, and pain. I’ve lived them. 
I trust no one,only my brothers, and my best friend.
I wasn’t always like that. Everything changed the day my parents died and my nation was attacked. 
Since then, family comes first. Work is my mistress. 
Nothing else matters. 
That is, until she walked into my life.
Short dress, long, tanned legs, and honey eyes that make me weak. 
She’s chaos. She’s sunshine and daffodils.
She’s loud.
She’s a fighter.
She’s a dreamer.
She’s everything I hate.
Why is it so hard to walk away from her?

Excerpt
Stretched t-shirt, dry blood and badass attitude looked good on him. That’s nothing
compared to Harrison Everhart wearing a suit. His tall, broad, body wrapped in a dark gray is a site I want to photograph, frame and stare at it forever. He’s the type of man who behaves differently depending on the place and time. For the past five hours, we chatted pleasantly about our families. Nothing too superficial but nothing too intimate, either. If I had time to date, he’d be the kind of man I’d choose. Easy to talk to, funny, and a gentleman.
A refreshing touch from the guys who I hook up with when I have time to go out with my friends. Which lately it’s been never. Maybe I have time, but I don’t want to waste it by doing the same thing over and over again. Meeting a guy who has little social skills, only talks about himself, and by the end of the date is the only one who is satisfied isn’t great. I have my little friendly toys that to do a better job and I don’t have to listen to nonsense.
This would be a great subject for a sociology class; the interactions between humans, and how out of touch they are with one another that dating has become a joke. What happened to love letters? The chase is so much different now than it was back when my parents dated. I should quit the Bureau and go back to school. Finish
my psychology degree, go into anthropology or sociology. I would enjoy doing that more than having to jump through hoops to show that I’m capable of more things than my superiors like to acknowledge. If anything, I can write a book with Mom’s letters and notes.
A manual on how it’s done.
“Everything okay?” Harrison asks when the service car stops, and the driver opens my door. “You’ve been quiet since we left the party.”
Define okay? My skin tingles every time you touch me. Your deep voice makes me shiver, and dancing in your arms was a bit torturous because everything inside me wanted you to touch more than my bare shoulders and my waist. But yeah, I’m cool.
“Your brother and Hazel never arrived at the party,” I comment, not disclosing that
I’d like to find out how my fake future boyfriend kisses. “Gia wasn’t there either.”
 “I’m sorry about that. If you want, I can try to find out her whereabouts. My people can hack her phone and track her daily activities. He smirks and winks. “We can start stalking her.”
“Stalking?”
I boom, laughing and covering my mouth when a couple walking close to us turns
to glare at me.
“Yeah, that’s the word and you know what they say, ‘couples that stalk together stay
together.’” He grins, his blue-crystal eyes shining with the post light.
That grin is addictive. I shouldn’t mind pretending to be with him while I’m working. A
little fun on the side, some sexy times. Sex. I haven’t had that in a long time. So long that I can only remember what my toys can do for me. But I care. He’s a distraction. Each time he smirks, touches me or talks with the low-bedroom voice I want to jump him. That’s not only unprofessional but also illogical.
“Anything for the sake of the case, right?” My voice comes out a little throaty, needy.
He clears his throat, looking around and poking the elevator. “We should do this again,” he says, leaning closer to me.
“Technically, we have to do it again.”
Have I mentioned this is the best case I’ve ever worked on in my entire life.” He leans forward, kissing my cheek. His lips lingering close to my ear for one too many seconds. His musk-wood scent making my stomach flutter. “Thank you,” I swallow hard, turning around and stepping into the elevator. “We can discuss our next move tomorrow.” I poke the elevator, looking at the doors that start closing his gaze locks with mine.  His eyes darken, the intensity of that gaze makes me feel vulnerable, bare. I imagine my skin searing with the touch of his big hands. As the doors close, my phone rings. An incoming message. Unknown number reads the screen.
Unknown: This was the best first date I’ve had in a long time. Thank you.

Colton and Gia are from Until June

Colton Allyster is relieved to be back home. After a year of rehabilitation, losing his career as a Marine along with his fiancé, he’s had to learn quickly what’s really important. Colton grew up wanting to serve his country. Managing his parents’ biker bar was never part of his plan, but after meeting Gia Caro, he’s beginning to think that’s exactly where he’s meant to be.

Ever since Gia Caro arrived in the small, sleepy town of Ruby Falls, Tennessee, her life has spiraled out of control. Between losing her grandmother a little more each day to dementia, and her hot boss’s constant attention, her once quiet existence isn’t so quiet anymore.

After weeks of sidestepping Colton, things get out of hand, and before Gia knows what’s happening, she’s spending her nights in his bed and her mornings in his kitchen. And as he cleans out drawers and makes room in his closet, she starts to wonder if she’s falling too fast.

Review – Ryder by Barbara Freethy

Review:

I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this book by Ms. Freethy.  Very different from the hardcore, open bedroom scenes that are the norm for me, I can’t believe not only how much I liked the quiet sweetness of Ryder, but how much I’m looking forward to the next books in this series. Ryder is our hero and he has returned home to start his new business, never anticipating that his business would require he talk to the youngest Tucker, Bailey.  I really like Ryder.  He had a good heart and was a gentleman…both sweet and sexy.  I liked that he didn’t anticipate his attraction towards Bailey and the thrill of watching him discover that everything he never knew he wanted has always been right under his nose.  Bailey is our heroine and she is licking her wounds in her hometown…the one place she thought she would never return to.  Bailey is sassy and smart but a little beaten down after a rather nasty experience in her personal and professional life.  The last thing she ever expected was to find safety in the arms of her families longstanding enemy….a Westbrook.  But these two find there may be many reasons for them to take the lead to show their families that burying the hatchet may be a good thing…the chief being that they didn’t expect to find the other half of heart lying with one another.  Their banter and easy camaraderie was cute and funny and was an aphrodisiac of it’s own kind.  Them falling in love was like watching a romantic comedy…you knew they were going to and you couldn’t wait to see the happy ending but you enjoyed every minute of the journey getting there.  This book was sexy but tasteful…with chaste kisses and closed door sex scenes.  I won’t lie, it is predictable (really, I saw this ending coming a mile away) but still delivers a wonderfully sweet story of love and forgiveness and making things right for the future.  Most of all, this book made me feel extremely good and slightly love-buzzed when I finished it.  It also had me anticipating the next story in this series.  Ms. Freethy did not disappoint and I can’t wait to see what the next book brings.  4 stars.

RYDER – Book One

When Navy pilot Ryder Westbrook is shot down, his only thought is making it home—to the place he left behind a long time ago. But dreaming about the small town of Eagle’s Ridge and going back are two very different things, and upon arrival Ryder finds himself in the middle of another battlefield—an old family feud between the Westbrooks and the Tuckers. To complicate matters, he needs disputed land to start his second career at the local airfield. He decides to enlist the help of beautiful Bailey Tucker, but the chef soon has his senses spinning in another direction…

The last person Bailey is interested in helping is golden boy Ryder Westbrook. After a painful personal betrayal, irresistible attraction to another man, who is probably too good to be true, seems like a terrible idea. But she also needs something from the Westbrooks, a chance to start over and build the restaurant of her dreams.

Ryder and Bailey make a simple plan—work together to get what they both want, but what happens when they find out what they really want is each other?

Don’t miss any of the sexy soldiers!

EXCERPT

Prologue

“We’re hit! We’re hit!”

Navy pilot Ryder Westbrook heard the panicked words of his copilot, Michael Valdez, but he was too busy trying to regain control of the SH-60 Seahawk helicopter to reply. They were coming back from a humanitarian mission—having dropped food, water and medical supplies into the rugged and remote villages of Afghanistan—when they’d taken enemy fire.

They weren’t going to make it back to the carrier in the Persian Gulf. They were going to have to set down somewhere, hopefully far from the rebel forces that had just shot at them.

His heart pounded against his chest, but he remained calm, his training playing through his head as he went through every option to retain control of the twin-engine helicopter.

Flying was in his blood. The helo had always felt like an extension of his own power, but now that power was crumbling, and he was being forcibly reminded of just how fragile life could be.

But he couldn’t quit. There had to be a way out.

Unfortunately, his optimism was dampened by the fact that the ground was getting closer by the second, and his crew was depending on him to get them down safely.

His copilot had a wife and a baby back in the States. Colin Forbes, the sensor operator, was getting married in a month. And he…well, he still had things he wanted to do.

He had to keep them all alive.

Searching the ground for a viable landing site, he spotted what appeared to be a flat, open rural area. Not only did he want to protect his crew, he didn’t want to hurt anyone on the ground.

Glancing over at Michael, he saw his friend making the sign of the cross.

“We’re not going to die,” he said emphatically, drawing Michael’s gaze to his. “Not today. Not this time.”

He could see the hope in Michael’s eyes. His friend wanted to believe him.

Hell, he wanted to believe himself.

He’d been in tight spots before, and he’d always come out on top. It had been that way his entire life. Growing up in Eagle’s Ridge, he’d been the golden boy—the one who set new records, who made things happen, who achieved whatever he went after.

But this was real life. This was happening now, and he was the only one who could save all their lives.

In ten years of naval service, he’d never encountered a situation exactly like this. He’d never felt so worried that his number might really be up.

He shook the negative thought out of his head, squaring his jaw, tightening his hand on the controls, as he rode the bird down to the ground.

The impact was harder than he’d expected, the helicopter shattering into pieces of fiery metal. And when everything went black, he fought against the idea that this might be it.

He had more he wanted to do, people he should have made peace with a long time ago, a home that beckoned to him—the Blue Mountains, the Snake River, the people of Eagle’s Ridge—a life still to be lived.

He needed more time… He just didn’t know if he was going to get it.

Review – Cuffed by K. Bromberg

 REVIEW:

I was completely FLOORED when I read this book!  My head is still spinning…first because it has sensitive subject matter in which I normally shy away from and secondly, it has an undertone that is darker than I usually prefer in my books.  However, the voice of Ms. Bromberg is so compelling and her storytelling is so dynamic, I was sucked in and I could not put Cuffed down!  Grant, our hero, is so amazing…I was just overwhelmed with how much this man loved Emmy.  Having been witness to the darkest days of Emmy’s life, Grant thought the little girl who was his best friend was gone form his life forever….until she returns to town and he vows to be a part of her life, no matter what it takes.  He is fierce in his need for Emmy, pulling out all stops to get  her to face him and their past while moving onto a future in which they live happily-ever-after.  He doesn’t count on Emmy being so stubborn and fierce.  Emmy, well, everything about her broke my heart and reshaped it…more than once.  She was strong and proud and just keeps moving forward, which is difficult given the past she has endured.  She is Grant’s equal in every way but it determined to hold a grudge against Grant for actions that changed her life for the best and the worse.  These two have so much passion it practically leaps off the page and saturates your reading device.  It’s that chemically combustive!  I about fell over with the raw sensuality of their passion and the eroticism put forth.  I still can’t catch my breath over a week later.  I see this cover and I swoon all over again.  Now, don’t be fooled…the path to happily-ever-after is not easy for Grant and Emmy. It is very emotional and intense and I can guarantee you that you will need a box of Kleenex and maybe a counselor on standby (ok…fine, not the counselor, but definitely a good hug after).  I simultaneously wanted to beat the crap out of both of them and wanted to cuddle them better.  This book evokes so many emotions I was literally spent at the end….and then I wanted to read it again!  We have the angst of their relationship coupled with the charming antics of Grants brothers and his beloved parents.  Their scenes were refreshing and added extra charm to this book….not to mention make you anxious to have his brother’s stories told.  We even have a sleezy-slimeball of a character who holds Emmy’s future in his hands and is a complete and utter A**hole in the process.  Emmy has some great friends she works with that liven up this book, not to mention her pistol of a best friend…all of who teach Emmy about family and love.  Overall, I couldn’t put Cuffed down…it was full of everything in a book I never knew I wanted and I’m excited to see what Ms. Bromberg has in store for the next book in this series!  Again, I will state that subject matter in this book features a storyline that may be difficult for some readers to embrace but if you can, I suggest you try this book as you venture into darker waters than you are used to.  It’s worth the fear.   5 stars. 

 

From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them. 

 “I hate you. I never want to see you again.” 

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again. 

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past. 

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.

What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?

*** 

 I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves. 

That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up. 

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story. 

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

Review – Southern Attraction by Kaylee Ryan

Review:

Southern Attraction was a seriously sweet romance which I found I enjoyed very much.  Normally I like my books with more spice and sin but the easy comfort I felt reading Southern Attraction was like welcoming a long-time friend home from a very long trip.  I enjoyed the heady anticipation and deliciousness of the tease I found reading this book.  Our hero, Mike, is a true gentleman, having met our heroine while she was already in a relationship.  He can’t deny he is attracted but he doesn’t poach.  He is so swoony and romantic, it was very easy to fall in love with him.  Jamie, our heroine first met Mike when she comes to visit her best friend and knows immediately that a relationship with him would never work but that the relationship she is already in is no longer working either.  She leaves town, and Mike, and determined to settle for nothing less that what Mike makes her feel.  But upon her return to help her friend plan her wedding, she is shocked by how much she feels still for Mike and these feelings they both feel can’t be denied.  I really liked Jamie and  her open, friendly nature and her drive to succeed.  You never doubt the love she feels for her friend and you know that if she can feel that type of loyalty and love for a friend then the person she chooses to share her life with will be loved completely and unconditionally.  She was a delightful character, fresh and vivacious and full of positive energy.  There are so many romantic moments between Jamie and Mike that don’t include sex that I forgot how wonderful the anticipation of a romance can be when it’s not “wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am” and I’m grateful to Ms. Ryan for reminding me.  Mike and Jamie have obstacles to over come…she’s a city girl with big career dreams and he’s a country boy running his family bar, there is no way they can make it work…or can they?  Southern Attraction made me laugh and cry but mostly it made me sigh in utter satisfaction.  I was enchanted from the first word until the very last and I’m definitely going back to get the other books in this series so I don’t miss out on one minute of what seems to be a great series!  4.5 stars!

Blurb
I had everything I ever wanted, living the dream, at least that’s what I always thought. The night we met, we had an instant attraction, but she was with someone else. When we reunited a few months later, that pull was still there, stronger than ever. So strong, that even though she was hundreds of miles away, I pursued her. I told myself that I just wanted to get to know her. Deep down I knew it was more.

 

I never understood the draw of living in the middle of nowhere. Born and raised a city girl, I never had the desire to leave. Who would have thought a weekend trip to the country would have me questioning myself? It was more than just the country; it’s him. The way he looks at me, treats me, that smooth southern
drawl.

Am I willing to give up my legacy for her?

Am I willing to give up my dream for him?

Can two souls come together by the force of Southern Attraction?

Review – Bad Reputation by Callie Blake

Review:

OK, I can be totally honest, this book shocked me, but in a good way.  At first, I couldn’t get into the book.  It was slow to take off and the cousin of our heroine completely repulsed me with her whiny and childish behavior.  But, I committed myself to sticking it out and I was glad I did.  I really like the love story of Connor and Peyton.  Connor, while he comes off as a complete manwhore in the beginning, surprised me once he became interestedin Peyton.  He was charming and arrogant, sure, but he had a very sweet side and was fiercely protective of Peyton from the beginning.  I loved how he rescued her one evening…good thing because I pretty much thought he was a lost cause for awhile.  Peyton is sweet and kind but is a doormat for her cousin and uncle.  It broke my heart!  She had sass and fire and I really enjoyed her spirited banter with Connor.  These two, together, have some pretty amazing chemistry and once they finally stopped fighting it, I was blown away!  I LOVED everything about their relationship, once they decided they couldn’t fight what was happening between them.  I adored how Connor stopped at nothing to make Peyton’s world brighter, and how desperately he wanted to bring calm to the chaos that sometimes surrounded her.   Truly, the ending was made of the best of all things!!!!  There is plenty of angst in the form of an over-the-top needy cousin (who finally mans up at the end) and an snotty friend who just can’t handle her friends good fortune.  There is a bit of a family issue that made me want to knock the crap out of Peyton’ s uncle on more than one occasion.  Overall, I did finally enjoy Bad Reputation and I think you will too.  Don’t get discouraged if you feel it starts off a little slow…it picks up in pace and leaves you wanting more at the end!  I look forward to trying more books by Ms. Harper.  4 stars!

He’s everything a good girl knows to avoid…So why is it that she can’t resist?
Hollywood has never interested Peyton Greene.
As her socialite cousin’s unofficial caretaker, she’s seen the ins and outs of the industry. The sleaziness, the backstabbing – the constant parade of womanizing assholes who break her cousin’s heart every week.
They’re all bad news, and as far as she can tell, Connor Schaffer is no different.
He’s six feet and two inches of cocky, smirking asshole – the panty-dropping king of one-night stands, and everything Peyton hates. But when Connor signs a unique contract with her uncle, Peyton finds their lives suddenly entwined on a daily basis. 
And despite their nonstop, claws out fighting, she finds herself suddenly tangled in his sheets.
Their spark was unpredictable, the sex unbelievable, and just like that, Peyton’s world is turned upside down. For the first time in her life, she’s discovering hot lust,
real pleasure and everything she swore was strictly not for her.
Long story short, Hollywood’s got this good girl screwed.

Taken By the SEAL

By Callie Harper

Release Date: October 20, 2017 

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

Now that I’ve taken her, I’m never letting her go. 

Taking Olivia hadn’t been my plan. I’d been prepping my cabin in the woods for my own getaway.

I’m an ex-SEAL, but my instincts are still strong. One glimpse of her innocent, terrified eyes and I know I need to save her. I’d been working with the bad buys, but all it takes is one look at Olivia and I’m back playing the hero, rescuing the damsel in distress.

Now we’re in my remote cabin, hidden away from the world. My little curvy virgin is looking up at me with a mix of innocence, fear, and desire.

The need to possess is burning through my veins. She thinks she needs to escape.

She’s not going to escape.

She’s going to be mine.

Born on the East Coast where she learned the joys of fast-paced sarcastic banter, she and her family are now kickin’ it in the West Coast sunshine. On any given day there’s a good chance you’ll find Callie outdoors enjoying the gorgeous Bay Area, but if she’s indoors, she’ll likely be reading, writing or eating, preferably all at once.
