After being dumped two weeks before his wedding, civil engineer Ryan Wright’s not interested in love. Been there, done that, had the wedding deposits to prove it. Still, he can’t help lusting after the fiery redheaded executive assistant who’s stirring up feelings that aren’t exactly appropriate for the office.

Sarah Leonard is determined to make the CEO fall in love with her. To execute her plan, she’s going to need a little help in the form of her lunch buddy, the 6’2” office hottie who just so happens to be their boss’s best friend. Who better to tell Sarah everything she needs to know to win the other man’s heart?

Ryan agrees to help Sarah put her plan in motion, but he has no intention of helping her win anything. In fact, it’s time to show his office crush that he’s the guy she should be falling for…



Falling for Mr. Wright was a cute, fun and sexy friends-to-lovers read!

Sarah has had a long-time crush on Logan, the CEO of the company she works at. When she asks her friend/co-worker Ryan to help her get her man (who happens to be Ryan's best friend), he reluctantly agrees. She doesn't know Ryan has feelings for her. But when the two share an unexpected kiss one evening, things start to change for Sarah. Now she can't stop thinking about Ryan. Ryan isn't looking for a relationship, but he can't stop thinking about Sarah either and after that kiss, he definitely wants more.

It's a bit of a bumpy ride for these two to their HEA, but the journey was worth it! I really enjoyed this fun, holiday read!

Early Review: A Duke in Shining Armor by Loretta Chase

Not all dukes are created equal. Most are upstanding members of Society. And then there’s the trio known as Their Dis-Graces.

Hugh Philemon Ancaster, seventh Duke of Ripley, will never win prizes for virtue. But even he draws the line at running off with his best friend’s bride. All he’s trying to do is recapture the slightly inebriated Lady Olympia Hightower and return her to her intended bridegroom.

For reasons that elude her, bookish, bespectacled Olympia is supposed to marry a gorgeous rake of a duke. The ton is flabbergasted. Her family’s ecstatic. And Olympia? She’s climbing out of a window, bent on a getaway. But tall, dark, and exasperating Ripley is hot on her trail, determined to bring her back to his friend. For once, the world-famous hellion is trying to do the honorable thing.

So why does Olympia have to make it so deliciously difficult for him . . . ?


A thrilling start to the new trilogy by Chase! Olympia is the shining star in this endearing historical romance. Ripley is delightful as he chases after Olympia trying to make her see reason and keep her en-devours hidden from society. Which will be a bit difficult with her running through the streets in a wedding dress. I wish Ripley had come to grips with his feelings sooner in the story. Nonetheless it made for an amusing tale.   I thought this was a terrific novel. I'm excited to learn more and hope Ashmont finds his true love in the up coming novel. A must read!

Early Review: RUGGED TEXAS COWBOY by Lora Leigh

Melina is one of two gorgeous twin daughters, the clever and considerate one who always spared her parents the humiliation of what her sister Maria had wrought. But now, Melina is finally ready to stand up for herself and seize control of her life—until she is kidnapped by a cowboy, named Jardin, who is dead-set on settling the score with her family. There’s only one catch: In capturing Melina, this tough, rough, hunk of a man has actually found a way to unleash her greatest fantasies, body and soul. . .

Beautiful, spirited Angel Manning has always longed to experience the power of her ancestors’ most precious heirloom. Her mother once told her that the legendary Irish torque would lead Angel to the one man worthy of possessing her heart. But when Angel learns that her father, now a widower, has sold the torque to the notorious two-timer Jack Riley, she is furious. Of course she plans to take back what is rightfully hers, by whatever means necessary. But the fate of the ancient Druids works in mysterious ways. . .Could it be that this slick, smooth-talking cowboy was destined to satisfy Angel’s deepest desires all along?



Rugged Texas Cowboy is not at all what I had hoped for.  Cowboy and the Captive were by far my favorite couple.  I loved the intensity and the angst.  I didn't really connect with the Cowboy and the Thief.  I think I would have enjoyed them more had they been full length novels instead of short stories.  The types of relationships Leigh writes about are very intense and built on trust.  That being said there are a slew of short stories by Leigh that I love.  I am a fan of her Breed series and dying for one particular story that is soon to come out next September, Cross Bread.  If you haven't read Leigh's work, you MUST.

Frank Griffin, an outlaw terrorizing the 1880s American West, hunts down Roy Goode, his partner turned enemy. Roy hides out at a ranch as Frank's chase leads him to La Belle, New Mexico - a town mysteriously made up almost entirely of women.


Loved Godless! Another win for Netflix.  La Belle is a town made up of only women, who happen to run the entire town.  Who wouldn't love that.  The women are kick-ass, not to be underestimated.  I don't want to give anything away because you need to watch this.  Jack O'Connell (Roy Goode)  is just splendid in all his glory.  I have the biggest crush on Michelle Dockery (Alice Fletcher) as well.  Complex relationships in a cruel world where those who surround you are what make you stronger, resilient in the face of adversity.  A must see for lovers of a good western set in New Mexico.  

Take a look!

Early Review: Head Coach (Hellions Angels #2) by Lia Riley

Posted on Nov 17, 2017 with No comments

Neve Angel’s life is all work and no play, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. One of Denver’s top sports reporters, she's fought hard to make it in a male-dominated world, and she won’t back down from a fight with anyone–not even the Hellions’ gruff head coach, Tor Gunnar. Her hostile relationship with the icy Scandinavian is the stuff of local legend.

Tor Gunnar hates dealing with the media; at best, they are a nuisance and at worst, a distraction. And no one distracts him more than the scrappy, sexy reporter who gets him hot under the collar. When he wins a not-so-friendly bet with Neve, he decides it’s high time they either kiss or kill each other, and invites her as a date to an out-of-town wedding.

But what happens when enemies become lovers? Will they be able to smother their sizzling attraction, or is it time to start playing for keeps?



This was a fun and sexy enemies-to-lovers read! I was so looking forward to Neve and Tor’s story and it did not disappoint!

Neve Angel, a sports journalist who covers Hockey and Tor Gunnar, the head coach of the Denver Hellions have been enemies for years. Tor hates the press, but Neve really gets under his skin. He also can’t get her out of his mind. And Neve is having a hard time doing the same. But these two definitely don’t want to admit that to each other…

But when Neve loses a bet with Tor, he asks her to attend a wedding with him out of town for the weekend. Neve and Tor end up having to share a room and that’s when the sparks really fly! Talk about some hot chemistry between these two! But Neve’s job may get in the way of their happiness. Will Neve do what’s needed to be done to keep her job and threaten their happiness or will she take the leap for something real with Tor?

I love Lia Riley’s writing. I’m always into the story right from the beginning with her books and I liked this one a lot! Great chemistry between the characters, fun, sexy and sweet moments made Head Coach a very enjoyable read!

Even though this is the second book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. I do highly recommend the first book in the Hellions Angels series, Mister Hockey as well I’m so looking forward to the next book, Virgin Territory!
