“Kenner may very well have cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.”

—RT Book Reviews

Wrecked With You, an all-new steamy and swoon-worthy standalone romance in the Stark Security Series by New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner is available now!

WWY_ebook_1707x2500

He never wanted a partner. And then she came along.

After more than a decade chasing shadows, Antonio Santos finally has a lead on the hiding place of The Serpent, the elusive villain who kidnapped him as a child and murdered his mother and uncle. But in order for Tony to get close, he’ll need access to an exclusive private island—where he can only enter with a woman on his arm.

Antonio goes to Stark Security to call in a debt … then walks out with Emma Tucker on his arm. A loner, Antonio isn’t interested in having a partner. He just needs a female. But the striking redhead’s skills soon impress him. More than that, her lush body and beguiling self-assurance tease his senses in unanticipated ways.

A longtime operative with deadly skills, Emma resents being arm candy for someone else’s agenda. But the more she works with Antonio, the more she admires his razor sharp intelligence and formidable prowess. And when the island’s games push them over a sensual cliff, she can’t deny his talents in the bedroom, too.

As passion rises on this island playground full of lust and danger, they both fight the growing attraction between them. But with danger racing toward them from both on and off the island, they soon realize that more than their hearts are at stake. Because unless they can trust and rely on each other, they also risk losing their lives.

Prologue

The world is a fucked up place.

That was probably the first lesson I learned in life. A hard-taught lesson when he’d yell at me or slap me. Or worse.

He was supposed to love us. To protect us.

But “supposed to” is only the truth in a fairy tale world. We lived in the real world, my sister and me. And when it got to be too much—when there was nothing and no one we could turn to except each other—that’s when we ran.

I’ve done things I’m ashamed of. Things I had to in order to survive. To keep us safe.

And I learned a long time ago not to trust anyone but myself and my sister. Because the people who are supposed to protect you will fail you. And the people who are supposed to love you can just as easily be monsters.

But lately, things have started to shift. My world is opening, and people are surprising me. I’m letting down my guard; I’m letting people in.

It’s a mistake, and I know it. Because now he’s come into my life.

And though I know I need to keep my distance—though I know damn well that he’s going to hurt my heart—I can’t help but slide down that hill toward him, terrified all the while that he won’t be strong enough to catch me.

And even more scared that he will.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

All-Time Favorite Read

Top Read of 2020

 

Oh my stars….WHAT A BOOK!!!! Hands down, this is my favorite read so far of 2020!!!!

“Xan and I will never change. I’ll always be his Green, and he’ll always be my knight.”

I love a book that can make me laugh, cry, and want to throw my Ipad across the room!!!! This one did all of that and more! The synopsis doesn’t even scratch the surface of how fantastic it is!!!

Kimberly aka Green to Xander is just waiting to get her senior year over with. She wants away from her mother and the bullies at school, especially Xander. He once was her best friend whom she adored. Now, he is her enemy and there is no adoration left for him. He made sure of that throughout the years as he stomped her heart into tiny little pieces. 

Xander worshiped the ground Green walked on and would have done anything for her. They were the best of friends, and they commiserated about the “stellar mothers” they had. Yes, I’m being sarcastic. There was not one motherly bone in either one of their bodies. He can’t ever let Kimberly in his heart, so he is cruel, doing whatever he can do push her away…even while breaking her heart even more. This was a huge twist. I thought I knew why he treated her so badly, but I didn’t even come close!!!! Rina Kent rocked my world with that one! 

As you can imagine, there is a lot of angst, but there has to be in Xan’s and Green’s story. I found the flashbacks of them as children so endearing. These two were meant to be together; they were soulmates from the very beginning. Life and uncaring people came between them. Xan is no longer her knight but her nightmare. I’m so glad Kent gave us both of their POVs because I would have a hard time finding any warmth for Xander. He could be so cruel to her. So, getting inside his head, helped me understand him so much better. 

Rina Kent warned her readers in the beginning that she writes darker romances, and they aren’t for the faint of heart. She was also very accurate in warning us that this book was different, and she really dug in deep emotionally. She dealt with issues of bullying, cutting, an eating disorder, depression, and addiction issues. She broke my heart before putting it back together again. There is one scene in particular with Kimberly that tears were pouring out of my eyes. I wanted to be there holding her and reassuring her that I “saw her.” As heavy as the book could be, it is amazing to me that Kent makes something so incredibly beautiful from it too!!!! That takes real talent, and Rina Kent has tons of that!!!!

I literally stayed up all night long to finish this book, not going to bed until 4:30 AM. It was worth every single minute of sleep I lost! If you want a book to keep your attention and leave you completely at a loss of words and your heart beating wildly, this is the PERFECT READ for you!!!!

The feud between Weston Lockwood and me started at the altar.
Only neither of us attended the wedding, and the nuptials happened decades before either of us was born.
Our grandfathers had been best friends and business partners, at least up until my grandfather’s wedding day—when his bride-to-be blurted out she couldn’t marry him because she was also in love with Weston‘s grandfather.
The two men spent years fighting over Grace Copeland, who also happened to be their third business partner.  But in the end, neither man could steal half of her heart away from the other.
Eventually, they all went their separate ways.  Our grandfathers married other women, and the two men became one of the biggest business rivals in history.
Our fathers continued the family tradition of feuding.  And then Weston and I did, too.
For the most part, we kept as much distance as possible.
Until the day the woman who started the feud died—and unexpectedly left one of the most valuable hotels in the world to our grandfathers to share.
Now I’m stuck in a hotel with the man I was born to hate, trying to unravel the mess our families inherited.
As usual, it didn’t take long for us to be at each other’s throats.
Weston Lockwood was everything I hated: tall, smart, cocky, and too gorgeous for his own good.  We were fire and ice.
But that shouldn’t be an issue. Our families were used to being at war. There was just one minor problem, though.   Every time Weston and I fought, we somehow wound up in bed.

QUEEN MOVE CHAIR AN TEASER

Excerpt:

“You’re fucking brilliant.”

“Huh?” Ezra asks absentmindedly, paying more attention to the flame under his pan than to my compliment. “What’d you say?”

“I said you’re brilliant.” I hold up the iPad I’m using to read his manuscript. “Your book, the YLA story, is incredible, Ez.”

“Oh. Thanks.” He flashes me a smile and then goes back to his French toast. “The key to getting this right is the milk-to-bread ratio.”

I hop off the counter and walk over to stand beside him at the stove. “Would you forget about your French toast for a minute and listen to me?”

“But it’s stuffed French toast.” He takes the pan off the burner and pulls me into his arms. “And I could listen to you all day. What were you saying? Something about me being a handsome, sexy genius?”

“Um…those weren’t my exact words.” I laugh up at him.

“I could have sworn that’s what you said, and I’m never wrong.” He slides his hands over my ass in a pair of his boxer shorts. “Some even say I’m fucking brilliant.”

“They probably just like your big dick,” I whisper and blink up at him as innocently as I can manage.

“I get that a lot.” He drops a kiss on my head and turns back to his French toast. I lean down to rest an elbow on the counter and watch him work.

“A lot?” I ask teasingly. “Have there been a lot?”

He pauses mid-toast-flip and slants me a glance. “Are you asking how many people I’ve had sex with?”

“I mean, it’s none of my business. If you don’t want to—”

“Eight.”

Eight?

Lord above, only eight?!

“Oh.” I straighten and rest my hip against the counter. “What a, um, single-digit number that is.”

“What about you?”

What about me? I’m tabulating years of hook-ups, one-night stands, fuck bois and carrying the one.

“If you don’t want to,” he says, cracking an egg into a bowl, “it’s fine. I don’t care how many people—”

“I don’t know.”

He glances up from whisking eggs, a small frown puckering his dark brows. “You don’t know what?”

“My number. I don’t know how many people I’ve been with.”

He resumes whisking, his frown clearing. “Oh.”

The whisking eggs and whirring refrigerator are the only sounds in the kitchen. I’ve never been embarrassed by my choices. I enjoy sex. I’ve had it with a lot of people. People I really liked…or tolerated…but didn’t want to commit to. I’ve always been safe and never mean about it. I was upfront, and when someone wanted more, I let them know “more” wasn’t an option.

“I just never…” I cross my arms over my stomach, fold one bare foot over the other. “I haven’t been interested in committed relationships. There hasn’t been anyone I wanted that with.”

“Tru.” He stops whisking and gives me the full impact of his undivided attention. His eyes are placid blue. No shadows or undercurrents. “I don’t care.” Ezra pushes the bowl aside and faces me. “But there is something I feel like we should be clear on regarding how you’ve handled sex in the past.”

Here we go.

“You’ve never wanted to commit before,” he says.

“Right. I’ve never wanted any strings attached.”

“I know I said we could be just sex, no emotional attachments.” He shoves his hands in his pockets. “But I feel like I have to be honest with you. Having you back in my life has been…it’s been exactly what I need, and what I felt last night… I’ve never felt that way before.”

I’m not even sure my heart is beating, but it also feels like there’s a tumult in my chest. “What are you saying, Ez?”

His mouth flattens into a hard line and his jaw hardens to stone. “I want strings.”

“Y-you do?”

“I want strings.” He links our fingers, strokes his thumb across my palm. “Ropes, if necessary. I want anything that keeps you with me and me with you and tells everyone else don’t even think about it.”

I’m stunned and incredibly turned on, but that doesn’t take much where Ezra’s concerned.

“You…you do?” I ask faintly…again.

“I wouldn’t do well sharing you.”

JoJo’s French Escape (A French Escape, Book 3) by Lorraine Wilson Publication Day Push with Review

JoJos French Escape

JoJo’s French Escape

by Lorraine Wilson

About the Book:

‘She had me at Bonjour! Warm, funny, deliciously French…this lovely story filled my heart with sunshine’ Jane Linfoot

Imagine yourself in beautiful France with the sun warm on your face and a glass of wine in your hand…Jojo’s French Escape is the perfect summer read!

Trapped in paradise…

For twelve months JoJo Grant has been hiding from a secret too shameful to share.  And whilst her sanctuary might be the beautiful French countryside, JoJo has a horrible feeling that her peace is about to be shattered…because bursting into her life is the hottest celebrity chef around – Callum O’Connor.

Callum knows all about JoJo’s past, her time as a reality star, the scandal that has dogged her, but he isn’t sure why she’s still hiding?  After spending time with Jojo, it’s obvious to him that she has nothing to be ashamed of – she just needs to be a little braver…
But as much as JoJo likes Callum, he thrives on the glare of the outside world.  Can JoJo let go of her past…with Callum by her side?

 




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

JoJo’s French Escape is a charming, romantic book just in time for summer reading!

JoJo has spent the last year hiding out in France. She could be in worse places than in the French countryside. Her job as working in a bed and breakfast has been a place of safety and solitude. She never dreamed she would be where she is now. She has been burned badly by social media and her ex-boyfriend. 

She had a wonderful cafe back in England when she was approached to star in a reality show. She was just expecting it to help her business, not ruin her life. Her ex, Aiden, who is a reality star, filmed a sex video of the two of them, and then he proceeded to completely annihilate her life by cheating with her best friend. This poor woman was humiliated just by him, but she was also a victim of bullying on social media blaming her. So, she had no choice but to leave her home, business, family, and friends. She now has some peace with her friend, Poppy, but she may now be in danger of losing her privacy yet again when she discovers guests in the B & B recognize her. Now, a celebrity chef, Callum, is coming to town to help Poppy and her fiance, Leo, get their new barn restaurant started.

JoJo isn’t sure about Cal. He represents everything she is trying to get away from. He isn’t so sure about her. He doesn’t really want to be around her because he thinks she represents everything he doesn’t like…being a person seeking fame. Boy, these two have it completely wrong. Thankfully, they begin to see past their preconceptions about one another, and a sweet love story begins. 

While this is a romance, it is also a book perfect for this day and age of social media. It touches on the dark side of reality television and social media platforms. It is mind-boggling that people will insult and hurt others behind a keyboard and do things they would never do in person. 

This is a wonderful book about starting over, second chances, and love. If you enjoy a lovely setting, heart-warming romance, and fans of some great canines, then you should definitely give this book a try.

New Review: The Beast of Boston by JL Mac

Title: The Beast of Boston
Author: JL Mac
Genre: Mob Romance (Dark)
Release Date: May 19, 2020
Cover Design: Robin Harper, Wicked by Design

“This is Beast. Beast is the size of a Volkswagen and has an impossible amount of buds and blooms. Beast also has thorns. But if you can sneak close enough to catch a whiff, and avoid the gnarly thorns, you’ll be ruined for all the other roses for the rest of your life. The sweetest, most addictive scent amongst the thorns.” 
 
That’s what mom told my little sister and I once. She led us close enough to look but no further as she spoke of her favorite rosebush that she had affectionately named Beast.
 
That was a long time ago. 
 
These days I know another Beast. A different kind of wild, untamed thing. He too is dangerous to get too close to. It’s unfortunate that I can’t afford to care, not when he’s the key to finding my sister. 
 
They called him The Beast of Boston when he was a professional boxer. Now he rules over a bunch of criminals—the same criminals I hope will lead to my sister. I won’t stop until she’s found. I’ll get as close to Beast as it takes, gnarly thorns and all. 
 
The problem is I’m so busy worrying for my own physical safety that I never considered how my heart would behave. Mom was right about one thing: I am ruined for all the roses for the rest of my life and it’s much too late to change it now.

A Top Read of 2020

OMG!!! LOVED this book! It is one of my top 10 reads of 2020. JL Mac completely pulled me into The Beast’s dark underworld. I was mesmerized!!!!

 

As you might imagine, there are elements of the fairytale, Beauty and the Beast, but this is nothing like the Disney movie. The beast in this version is much scarier. He is ruthless and intimidating. Beauty isn’t the shy little bookworm either. She is strong and can be pretty intimidating herself and has a taste for vengeance. 

 

Ena’s sister, Lan, has gone missing. She has every intention of bringing her home no matter the personal cost to herself. That is how she finds herself lying to her mother and applying for a job as an exotic dancer at the club, Eden, which is run by The Beast of Boston. He is second in command to Orin McCrae, one of the most notorious crime bosses in the country. She is sure there is a connection.

 

Can I just say that Ena is my hero? This woman is incredible. At her first meeting with him, she is mentally shaking in her boots. However, she never gives anything away. She learned to do this the hard way. Her childhood was tragic until she became part of a wonderful family who showed her what love was, yet she couldn’t completely shed all that trauma she experienced. That comes in handy when dealing with Beast. She has prepared for every instance except the attraction she has for him. As time passes, she will have to face the battle between her mind and her heart because they are telling her two very different things. 

 

Oh, Beast, who knew a monster could so sexy and appealing? 

 

“How funny that this monster–this Beast of Boston–is also gargantuan and happens to sport one lifelike red rose of his one. He too has thorns, just not the type you can see. His are hidden, and they’re that much more dangerous for it. He’s a pretty monster. That’s not quite accurate though. He’s not pretty. He’s beautiful.”

 

He is such a complex and tormented human. Mac did such a magnificent job of peeling back his layers. She does this through the chapters that are told from his point of view. I saw the ruthlessness and the need to punish those that wronged him. However, I also saw glimpses of tenderness and loyalty. He had very few people he was really close to and trusted, but if you were lucky enough to have him in your corner, you had nothing to fear from him, except his overprotectiveness. That was kind of endearing!

 

The chemistry between these two both inside and outside of the bedroom was INTENSE!!!! Both were so stubborn and neither would give in easily. Two people were never better matched!!

 

The romance and suspense were blended together flawlessly. I’m not sure what kept me flying through the pages more…would these two finally give into their desire, or what other twist and secret did Mac have in store for me. 

 

I cannot leave this review without expressing how much I LOVE Mac’s writing. Yes, this is a dark read, but her writing is beautiful, I would almost say magical. It really connected me on an emotional level. 

 

“Ignoring her disappearance, not bringing up her existence? Are we both too cowardice to stir the sediment of the shipwreck, knowing the murk would blind both of us from finding our way back to the surface?”

 

In this passage, it clearly illustrates the devastating pain Ena and her mother feel about Lan’s disappearance. It was just beautiful!!!! I also loved Mac’s story of how she came up with the idea of this book. It began with a rosebush, and she turned it into such a beautiful and emotional read!!!!

A Good Demon Is Hard to Find

by Kate Moseman

 

About the Book: 

Sometimes, a date from hell is just what you need…

When Erin thoughtlessly lays a curse on Mark, her cheating ex-husband, she doesn’t expect a well-dressed Great Earl of Hell to show up in her kitchen to fulfill the curse (and make damn good coffee while he’s at it).

Andromalius specializes in wickedness and revenge. He’s ready, willing, and able to rain down hell on Erin’s ex—but when Mark announces a hasty new marriage, Erin needs more than just revenge.

She needs a date to the wedding.

Fans of Good Omens, Lucifer, and The Good Place will love this wickedly funny paranormal romantic comedy!




Christie’s Review

4 .5 STARS

A Good Demon is Hard to Find by Kate Moseman is a cute, sweet, and funny paranormal romantic comedy!!!!

Erin has had a rough go of it lately. She is newly divorced. Her ex cheated with no other than her now ex-best friend. What’s a betrayed woman to do…in Erin’s case she puts a curse on him. She certainly isn’t expecting a demon to show up in her kitchen to help her. Andromalius, Andy, is there in her time of need. His specialty is revenge. 

Erin and Andy are so cute together. Not only do they discover things about each other, but they discover things about themselves. Andy is irresistible. He is a demon, but there is also a lot of good in him too…hence the title. 

Erin put aside some of her own desires and beliefs to make her ex happy, and through Andy she learns she never has to do that again. She can be true to herself and still love someone and be loved like she deserves. 

The synopsis only scratches the surface of the book. There is a wedding, and Andy is her date. Through their time together, this unlikely match develops real feelings for one another. When her friend, Raya, and another demon, Phoenix, get involved, hilarity and chaos ensue.

Moseman took the genres of romance, paranormal, comedy, and chick lit and wrapped them up flawlessly to create a heck of an enjoyable read! Can’t wait to read Raya and Phoenix’s book when it releases!

New Review: Southern Storm (Southern Series #3) by Natasha Madison

Release Date: May 19
Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.

Savannah
I’m the one who broke up the golden couple. The woman people still whisper about, point at, and give dirty looks to.

 

 



Did I sleep with the prom king? No. Did I sleep with the town’s golden boy on vacation from college? Yes.

 

 

 

 

Did I believe that he was going to marry me? Wholeheartedly.

 

 

 

 

Did he? Not even close. He got engaged right in front of me and then his father threw two hundred dollars at me and told me to take the trash out.

 

 

 

 

So, I raised my son in a town where people love him because they think that his father is the sheriff.

 

 

 

 

It was going great, everything was working out till my lie got out.

 

 

 

 

Beau

 

 

I was getting ready to take over the mayoral office from my father, who was my hero.

 

 

 

 

Until I heard the secret he hoped would stay buried forever.

 

 

 

 

My brother has a son, not just any son but a son with the woman who was my best friend.

 

 

 

 

The woman I secretly have loved from the moment she stood up to me and broke my nose in kindergarten.

 

 

 

 

I need to protect her and in order to do that, we need to get married.
 
Too bad her nightmare is my dream come true.



Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Well, the action in this book just took off right out of the gate!!!! Holy smokes, I spent a late night finishing this one!!!!

Never have I seen such a stubborn couple in my life. Everybody knew these two were so in love with each other, but Savannah nor Beau wanted to admit it to each other. Savannah has adored him since she was just a child, and he felt the same about her. However, circumstances continued to keep them apart romantically. They are still the best of friends. 

Savannah is one determined, strong woman. No matter what people think of her or the insults that are hurled at her, all of them unwarranted…by the way, she has worked her tail off to realize her dreams and be a good mother, and she has done both fantastically! When the secret of her son’s paternity comes out, she finds her life in danger. Thank goodness for her friends and Beau. 

Beau has stuck by Savannah’s side through everything, even standing up to his arrogant family who look down their noses at her. With her life now in danger, he will do whatever it takes to make sure she and her son are safe. He has the perfect solution…get married to her. Bring on the romance and steam!!!!!

With their marriage, comes even more danger and family secrets meant to be hidden will finally see the light!!! Southern Storm is exactly what a good romantic suspense should be!!! LOVED IT!!!!
