***A Standalone novel in The Pucked Series***

I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance.”

I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.

Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.

I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.

At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.

I shouldn’t want her.

But I do.

I should leave her alone.

But I won’t.

Excerpt:

Armed with my clipboard, I walk down the hall to the waiting room. Lance is impossible to miss. Despite the fact that he’s wearing a sweatshirt and the hood is covering half of his face, he’s more than six feet of broad, hockey-playing man.

He’s so wide his shoulders encroach on the chairs on either side, which would explain why no one is sitting next to him. He’s slouched down so his head rests on the back of the chair, and his hands are clasped in his lap, a baseball cap hanging off one knee. His lips, plush and soft—I know since I’ve had them on mine; it might have been a decade ago, but I remember it clearly—are parted. He looks like he’s asleep.

I clear my throat. “Lance Romero?”

He doesn’t move.

Bernadette, the receptionist, gives me a meaningful look.

I clear my throat again and call his name a second time. He jolts awake and the hood falls back, exposing his face. It’s not in good shape. He has a black eye and bruises on his left cheek. There’s a fly bandage across one eyebrow.

Sadly, he’s still hot.

He blinks a few times, yawns, and smacks his lips, his tongue touching the split in the bottom one. His gaze sweeps the room and finally lands on me. Heat explodes in my cheeks and courses through my limbs, warming me from the inside out as he starts at my sneaker-clad feet and roams up over my yoga pants to my company-issued T-shirt before stopping at my face. I can’t look directly at him for more than a couple of seconds. I sincerely hope he doesn’t remember me. I cannot go there and also be professional.

I’m sure the smile he gives me has melted many a panty off a slutty bunny. Mine stay right where they’re supposed to, wedged up my ass.

I force a polite, professional veneer. “I’m ready for you now.”

New Release & Review: Lost In Between by KL Kreig

 

 

Title: Lost in Between
Series: Finding Me #1
Author: K.L. Kreig
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 20, 2017

 

Blurb

We all have one.A price.

That magic number that will get us to agree to do anything, be anything.

Don’t sit on your gold-plated high horse and say you don’t because you do. Everyone does. Each of us has something we covet enough that we’d sell ourselves to have it.

What’s my tipping point, you ask? Apparently a cool quarter mil will do the trick.

What does one do for 250 large, you wonder? Anything the infamous, gorgeous playboy of Seattle wants. For the next four months I’ll be Shaw Mercer’s arm candy, his beck and call girl, his faux girlfriend. I’ll be his to command, mold, push and pull in any direction he sees fit.

I’ll fight falling into bed with him. I’ll fight falling in love with him even harder. I’ll fail at both. And when my past and present collide in the most unexpected of ways, I’ll learn that while one man’s love for me has never died, the only man’s love I really want will never be mine.

Lost in Between by KL Kreig was a 4 star read for me. It was a well paced story with 2 very likeable characters. Willow is working for money to help her sick mother. Shaw needs a girlfriend for the next few months so he hires Willow. The 2 have chemistry instantly. But neither is willing to give in to those feelings. Shaw doesn’t do commitment and Willow is working to help her mother. When feelings start to mix with business neither knows what to do or how to handle it.

This book is 1 of 2 so I am impatiently waiting for book 2 to see how it ends for Willow and Shaw. I hope they have their HEA!

Author Bio
As a USA Today Bestselling author, I write stories that are deeply emotional with flawed characters, because humans ARE flawed and if we read about perfect characters living in their perfect world, first of all, snoozer, but secondly, we never experience the gratification of redemption.

Outside of writing, I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).

New Release & Review: Silenced by Leddy Harper

 

 

Title: Silenced
Author: Leddy Harper
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2017
Blurb

Haunted by a photographic memory, I couldn’t escape the worst night of my life.
The blood they shed.
The pain they endured.
The evil that still walked free.
It was all I saw. Those memories, my childhood—the images.
Silenced and scarred.

But nothing lasts forever.
Torment turned to blinding rage. Hate sought revenge, which pursued death.
Then there was life.
The moon.
Rylee Anderson.

I had to choose…

Silenced really got me in the feels. From the very first page of this book, I felt drawn to Killian. I could never imagine living in his world. Just dreaming up a character like Killian would pull me under.

Killian is only a child when he suffers an unimaginable horror after witnessing a double murder. Despite the darkness he saw, there was a light inside of him. Trying to cope with what happened to him, Killian has an outlet in his sketches. He is bounced around to a few homes before he settles with his aunt and this is where he meets Rylee. Rylee sees something in the quiet and mysterious young man. She sees his light despite all the darkness and an unbreakable bond is formed. However, Killian has a restlessness that even Rylee cannot quiet completely. Seeking the answers that he needs, Killian chooses a road that tears them apart just when they need each other the most. Revenge, fate, and that bond may be what saves Killian in the end.

I loved both of these characters. Killian was a great alpha. Strong, silent, brooding, and sexy. He had morals and a devotion that took him to another level. Rylee was sweet and caring and a balm to Killian. Everything about this book hit just the right note for me. I loved every minute of it.

Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped.


She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.
She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.

The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.

4-star
Healing the Broken by K. Street is a debut book by this author and you wouldn’t know it by her writing style. It was smooth and transitioned nicely throughout. She had 2 main characters that were loveable and strong.
Ryann is a woman who has seen things most people never do and she is still having the nightmares to prove it. Cashel is a man that has been burned in the past but when he runs into his old childhood friend Ryann he wants to help fix her. With memories at the forefront for both, a love grows between the two and when Ryann’s past comes back to haunt her, Cashel is there to protect her.
This is an emotional story that will have you laughing one minute and in tears the next. There is so much strength and honesty in this book that I couldn’t put it down until I was done.

Excerpt

 

Cash’s POV“Stay.”

It’s uttered so quietly, I assume she’s dreaming. Without turning to look at her, I take another step out of the room.

“Please.”

There is a desperate sound in her tone that seizes my heart and traps the air in my lungs. Turning back, I go to the side of the bed and crouch down, so I’m eye-level with her. Softly, I push the hair off her forehead and hold her gaze. All her defenses are down. If a person’s eyes are windows to their soul, I feel like I’m seeing into the depths of her. Seeing all the broken pieces.

“All right, baby girl, I’ll stay.”
