#Review #Romance Touching Jace by Mallory Crowe

Title: Touching Jace
Author: Mallory Crowe
Rating: 5 stars

I always know when I pick up a Mallory Crowe book that I'm always going to get a great story.

Touching Jace introduces readers to the Devereaux family and a mystery that surrounds Emma's sister. Emma enlists the help of an ex-SEAL, Jace, in order to find out what led to her sister trying to murder one of the richest women in New York. He's reluctant at first, but it doesn't take long for sparks to fly between these two.

This was a fast paced romance. Everything happen quickly, including the feelings that developed between the two, but it didn't feel unrealistic. They were well matched, even though it didn't seem that way at first. What could an ex-SEAL who works private security and an heiress have in common?

The story had just the right amount of steam and mystery to keep me turning the page. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a sexy romance with a touch of suspense.

#NewRelease #Romance Summer Scandal by Stacey Joy Netzel

Release Date: September 28, 2017

Will a salacious scandal ruin her career – or bring her the love of her life?

Mechanic Clay Westfield thought he was on the flip side of a crazy media storm after his sensationalized divorce from pop superstar, Dianna Skye. Then she gives an emasculating interview that goes viral, and his ego makes him do something stupid enough to throw him right back into the eye of the abhorrent tornado.

Actress Peyton Riley returns home to weather the scandal threatening to torch her career. But less than three hours back in town, Hollywood’s fallen sweetheart finds herself caught up in the arms of a man who’s as infamous as she—and the paparazzi are right there to fan the flames.

Some crafty maneuvering by matchmaker Santa Butch throws the two together at Clay’s mother’s secluded ranch and sparks fly as new rumors are ignited. If their relationship is to have any hope of survival, they’ll have to sort truth from lies as they withstand the scorching heat from a ruthless media spotlight. 


The main room of the barn loft apartment—the only room—was a big square, with a double bed on one side, brown plaid couch on the other, small kitchenette, and a door she assumed was for a tiny bathroom. Everything looked old, and smelled...stale. Her nose wrinkled. Hopefully, at least one of the two windows opened because there was no air conditioner in sight.
There was also no coffee maker on the counter, and no TV on the ugly brown wall opposite the equally hideous couch. She had her laptop with her, but sincerely doubted there would be Wi-Fi.
Peyton faced Clay with a hand on her hip. “I was told your mother is opening a bed and breakfast.”
“She is.”
“Annnnd, guests stay in the barn? How quaint. You going to fix up a few stalls, too?”
“We’re not officially open because the house isn’t finished yet. Won’t be for a while,” he said without apology. “You’ve got two options. In the house, next to my bedroom, sharing a bathroom with me—”
Now why in the world did her mind have to jump straight to the fantasy image of him in nothing but a small towel, his wet, tousled hair dripping water down along his neck, onto his firm, bare chest? She avoided his gaze as heat flushed her body.
“—or, you can stay out here, with your own bathroom, and have complete privacy.”
And no sexy, half-naked man to run into in the hall. Hmmm—
Stop it. That’s a good thing! What is wrong with you?
“Of course, there is a third option,” he added. “If either of the first two aren’t good enough for you, no one’s making you stay.”
No, but she’d bet her entire paycheck from her last movie someone was specifically trying to make her leave. And no way in hell was she going to give him the satisfaction.

#NewRelease #Romance - Daring Wes by Jules Barnard

Release Date: September 26, 2017

A second chance could either save him or destroy him…

I was born with a competitive streak a mile wide. Ever since I could walk, I’ve made it a point to never lose. And I never did, until my girlfriend left me senior year of college and my professional golf career tanked. 

Over the past four years, I’ve fought to regain my winning edge. The last thing I need as I prepare for the pro tour is my ex-girlfriend sauntering into the golf shop on the arm of her new fiancĂ©. Then again, this might be my opportunity to win back what I’ve lost. 

Kaylee doesn't seem the contented fiancĂ©e she should be, or the cold-hearted girl who left me years ago—and she's hiding a secret. One I’m determined to discover. Because if there's a chance I was wrong about Kaylee and she really had loved me, maybe I can break the mental block that’s left me in the rough. 

But the rules of golf don’t always apply to love.


“You’ve been hot and cold since I came into town. What is it you want?”

He grabbed her bottom and pulled her up, searing her lips with a quick, hot kiss. “Let’s try again, Kaylee,” he said low, hovering above her mouth.

Wes lowered her to the dance floor but kept her pressed against his chest and thighs.

Her breaths came out choppy. She tried to respond—to unleash some fury on his ass—but his hands on her bottom were ruining her concentration.
