Recommendation: Distraction by Emily Snow

Recommendation: Distraction by Emily Snow

I have eagerly awaited Emily Snow’s Distraction since I read Friction and met the mysterious and sexy Mateo. The sexual tension between he and Jamie exploded during their brief two scenes they Friction, and I knew their story was going to be amazing. Well, it is amazing. (FYI: you do not have to read Friction beforehand, but you should read it sometime because it is AMAZING.) Jamie and Mateo are at different stages in their lives. She wants […]

Recommendation: Baby, Come Back by M. O’Keefe

Recommendation: Baby, Come Back by M. O’Keefe

I think M. O’Keefe has voodoo writing skills that give her the ability to hypnotize readers and transform reading into a virtual reality experience. I feel like I lived Baby, Come Back, and I had to remind myself after I finished that it didn’t really happen – comparable to when waking from a dream and being momentarily confused as to what was real and what was not. I was enthralled from the beginning to the […]

Excerpt: A Reader’s POV & Must-Reads @ USA Today’s Ha..

See article @ USA Today’s Happy Ever After. Witty, sarcastic and button-pushing banter is my catnip. There’s nothing quite like two people engaging in verbal flirtation through rapid-fire exchanges of humorous and snarky comments designed to provoke and entice. It’s sexy, smart and the best literary foreplay.* I imagine it’s difficult to write this intricate dialogue dance, which is why I do a silent cheer and unreciprocated fist bump when I discover a book with […]

Recommendation: Royal Player by Katie McCoy

Recommendation: Royal Player by Katie McCoy

Royal Player is sassy romantic comedy with two of my favorite things—royalty and sports. Emmy is in London for the summer and working part-time at Wimbledon when she accidentally walks in on a very naked and gorgeous Charlie Davenport. He’s a prince and a competitive tennis player—much to the chagrin of his royal family—and he nabs a kiss from the intriguing Emmy during their run-in. He ends up winning his match and can’t get her or her kiss out of his mind.   When […]

Recommendation: The Hot Shot by Kristen Callihan

The Hot Shot by Kristen Callihan: It feels like hockey has dominated sports romances lately, and this Texas girl has missed football, which is why I am thrilled Kristen Callihan is back on the field with the fourth book in her Game On series – The Hot Shot.

Recommendation: Walk of Shame by Lauren Layne

Recommendation: Walk of Shame by Lauren Layne

I have three words to describe Walk of Shame: fun, fun, fun! (I know that isn’t very creative, but it really does describe the reading experience.) It has everything I love and expect from a Lauren Layne book – witty banter, endearing characters, and…  

Recommendation: The Player by K. Bromberg

Recommendation: The Player by K. Bromberg

K. Bromberg is one of my favorite authors, and The Player reminds me why. Her writing is powerful and vibrates with emotion, and I frequently highlight passages in awe of her talent. The Player is a sexy sports romance with a captivating and heartfelt story that delves into the complexities of the relationships between fathers and daughters and sons. The …

Excerpt: A Reader’s POV & Must-Reads

See full post @ USA Today’s Happy Ever After. My teenage son was recently horrified to discover a pair of my Spanx underwear mixed in with his clean laundry. Although he’s claiming permanent psychological damage from seeing my “girdle” stuck to his joggers, I’m glad I exposed him to the realities of women’s less-than-sexy underwear in an innocuous way. Perhaps he’ll recognize that not every woman wears La Perla lingerie every day or has a […]
