New Review: Looking to Score by CoraLee June & Carrie Gray


Looking to Score by CoraLee June and Carrie Gray is LIVE and FREE with KU!

Looking to Score is like the book equivalent of comfort food- goes down easy and leaves you feeling full and content. This book is funny, charming, heart-warming, insanely clever, and JUST what we need. I simply LOVED it and could not put it down.” ~The Romantic Rush Blog

He’s like literally the worst.

Oakley Davis is the star running back at our University, and the reason I’ve broken my vow to avoid the college party scene. Thanks to a mixup with my advisor, I’m now serving my Public Relations internship as a glorified babysitter to the party-hard football players.

Specifically, Oakley.

He’s impossible to manage. His Instagram is full of half-naked, drunk photos and he’d rather attend parties than practice. His brand needs some serious work, and when he’s not driving me insane, he’s sleeping his way through the entire female population.

But I’m determined. I have plans to graduate a semester early and nothing or no one will get in my way. I’m a Virgo, after all. Oakley Davis might be a privileged, cocky, football star, but I’m Amanda Matthews; and I’ll do whatever it takes to get my A.

I have to make sure I don’t end up falling in love with the idiot, first.

Christie’s Review


Oh my gosh…this is an addicting read!!! I spent another late night finishing another great book! Not only was it a fantastic romance full of chemistry and swoonworthy moments, it was also a story about second chances and learning from your mistakes. 

“We can’t give our mistakes all our energy forever.” ~Amanda’s  mother~

Amanda has worked hard the past year to make changes to her life, and she is determined to get her A, her internship, and finish college early. Too bad the internship she was hoping for fell through and now she is stuck with Oakley Davis, the running back for the football team and a local celebrity. He is also trouble with a capital “T.” It  will take everything she has to clean up his image.

Oakley was a man you noticed whenever you walked into the room. He commanded it. 

“It wasn’t his signature dark hair or the way he towered over everyone else that made him stand out–though his classically handsome appearance helped–it was his very essence, his energy. He had this carefree power about him that was intoxicating to watch.” ~Amanda~

Despite the charisma and good looks, he also had a huge ego. The way girls fell all over him just fanned that flame. Amanda is determined not to fall under his spell, despite the butterflies he gives her. She has a job to do, and she plans on doing it! As she gets to know a softer side to him, her job becomes even harder. In addition to his sex appeal and sense of humor, she discovers he is also an expert flower arranger….who in the world could resist that?????

When Oakley first sees Amanda, he isn’t impressed, especially when she takes over all of his social media accounts. He sees her as uptight with no idea of what fun is! The way he pushes her buttons had me laughing hysterically!!! She realizes that there is more to Oakley than meets the eye, and he realizes she does have a heart beating in that uptight body. I enjoyed watching them become friends as they fell in love with each other. 

Both of them have made mistakes in their past, and each is doing what they can to learn from it and move forward. Oakley showed Amanda that she is a worthy person, beautiful both inside and out, and he helped her find self-confidence in herself. He also helped her relax and find the fun in life again. In turn, she showed him that she loved him because of who he was as a person, not the star football player. It was one of those books that just made me sigh in delight when I finished the last page. 

These two writers are new to me, and I am so glad I discovered them. I can’t wait to read more from the both of them.

I have always loved to read. In kindergarten, I was the weird kid sitting in the reading nook by myself instead of trying to get more snacks. I’m excited to be putting my own voice on the page and watching a story I helped create come to life. I still love to read, but I also really like snacks.

I grew up in Chicago but recently moved back to the Dallas area where I live with my husband and son.

I have my Bachelor of Science in Biology. I spent a year researching chimpanzees and gorillas while I was in Chicago and then I spent another two months on a chimpanzee sanctuary trying to convince headstrong chimps to cooperate. Pro tip – grapes are a pretty hot bargaining tool. They work wonders with my toddler too.

What the Elf? (Cringle Cove Christmas Chronicles)

by Kate Benson


About the Book 


After my sister and I lost our parents, life has been up in the air.
The only thing we’ve been able to hold onto is our pact to spend every Christmas together, avoiding it like the plague.
That’s exactly what I’m doing when a deliciously dimpled man introduces himself the first day I arrive in Cringle Cove.
There’s nothing wrong with making a friend, right?
Until our easy friendship turns into a hellacious crush and a favor bred from nightmares.
For the first time ever, I’d kill for a Christmas miracle.

For someone who loves everything about the holidays, mine are sure getting off to a terrible start.
The worst part?
I promised my ex I wouldn’t tell a soul we’d ended things until we’re far away from Cringle Cove.
At least I’m in the most festive town in the country.
If everything else goes to hell this week, I’ve got that.
I’m hiding out in a coffee shop when I see Abby.
She’s awkward, sarcastic, and obviously miserable here.
I’ve never wanted anyone more.
Keep a promise to your ex in exchange for a happy holiday?
What the elf was I thinking?

What the Elf? is a multi-POV standalone with content intended for mature readers.

Christie’s Review


Super sweet Christmas read that can be read/listened to at any time of the year!!!!

Yes, I know it’s May, but this was the perfect, uplifting read/listen during this strange time we are in now! Abby and her sister are twins and have been even more inseparable since losing their parents years ago. They go to Cringle Cove (LOVE the name of the little town) every year, even though Abby hates Christmas. Every year is the same, binge-watching slasher movies instead of Christmas ones. This year will be different for her even if she doesn’t know it when a handsome stranger introduces himself in a cafe. 

Dex is the complete opposite of Abby. He loves the holidays, but this year it is hard for him to muster his usual jolly self. He has just promised his ex he will not reveal to her parents that the two are not in fact together. Every second he spends with her and them, it gets harder. He finds refuge in a cafe where a beautiful but strange girl captures his attention. He finds that the two share a similar taste in writers. Thus, begins a morning ritual that turns to friendship to a pretty serious crush!!!

The story itself is sweet with some sexy moments hidden in there. I ADORED both Abby and Dex. They really complemented each other. She would come to see Christmas through Dex’s eyes, although it might not completely make her fall in love with the holiday. The relationship between Abby and her sister was so special. Despite the story being short, Kate Benson left nothing out. 

I loved the narrator, Jillian Yetter. She is a new narrator to me, and I thought she did an excellent job. When a book is told in dual POVs, with male and female characters, I usually prefer both a male and female narrator. However, Yetter was perfect. She did an excellent job of capturing the essence of the book and the characters. 

Like I said, this is a book listened to at any time of the year. It is short and sweet, with great characters, and is an excellent pick-me-up!!!!

 Christie’s Review


What a fantastic read! Once I started, I couldn’t put the book down…LITERALLY!!!!

It is full of all the things I love…angst, drama, romance, and lots of chemistry!!!! Tyler and Annie are also characters that I could connect with. Their romance tugged at my heartstrings!!! It was a slow-burn yet full of heat!

Tyler lives with Annie and her family. Her father is a legendary rockstar who saw talent in Tyler, and he wants to help him have a career in the industry. He only has one request…don’t entertain any romantic thoughts about his daughter. It shouldn’t be too hard since it appears that they can’t stand one another. But, appearances can be deceiving. 

Annie and Tyler used to be friends until he broke her heart by turning his back on her. Despite the fact of who her father is, many of her classmates don’t like her, especially one girl in particular. Now, Annie hates Tyler yet she also longs for him at times. It especially gets harder when he begins doing nice things for her. 

It also seems like Tyler doesn’t harbor any feelings, negative or positive for Annie. However, he is a complicated character who hides a lot, and he is very good at it. He does see Annie as so much more than a friend, and it is getting harder to hide that fact!

This is a book that illustrates that opposites do attract! Annie is rich, and Tyler came from nothing. He wants to hide from the limelight, despite the fact that he can’t with his talent. Annie longs to be seen. She is pretty much an open book and that is the thing I liked most about her. Tyler is a master at hiding secrets and feelings! Even though they don’t have much in common, they share distrust and abandonment issues which impacts how they function both individually and as a new couple. This could be the one thing that will end up tearing them apart. 

These two just got started when the book ended, and oh my, what an ending! I can hardly stand waiting for the next book in the series. I’m looking forward to seeing what direction these two are going to take, both as individuals and a couple. I know one thing for sure, the author will make it interesting!!!!

New Release & Review: Falling North (Turner Artist Rocker, #2) by Alyson Santos & Giveaway ($25 Amazon Gift Card)


Falling North by Alyson Santos is LIVE and FREE with KU! Who says you can’t fly through the fall?

Alyson Santos has the way of writing about music that makes you feel the words you’re reading. No one writes rock star romance like she does. No one.” Author M.E. Carter

Turner Artist Management Urgent Action Item:

✔ Save Falling Back North from implosion.

When your agency’s newest artist shows signs of collapse, you jump on the problem. When it involves a potential rift between the brothers who form the band’s soul, you throw your Hail Mary.

So I did—by hiring a respected marketing goddess to save them. But when demons run deep and the stakes are extreme, it might prove too much for the band’s drummer and leader who’s been carrying them all since childhood. Enormous pressure compounded by impending heartbreak, what’s an agency to do?

See, I’m just the manager. The story that follows actually belongs to my client Xander Silva and the innocent marketing siren about to blow him to shreds.

Because now that both brothers have their hearts set on the same woman, everyone’s desperate to know:


Christie’s Review


Alyson Santos has done it again. Just when I think she can’t get any better, she proves me wrong! 

Falling North is about another client of Turner Artist Management. This band centers around two brothers, Xander and Matty. They are a unique sound, modern, alternative with a Latin twist. They are on the cusp of success but also on the cusp of imploding. The solution: hiring a marketing firm in the form of Lydia Carmichael to save them. Things get even more complicated as both brothers have feelings for the lovely Lydia. Yeah, things are about to get really interesting. 

Matty is the front man with loads of charisma, but the soul of the group is Xander. He not only carries the load of the band but also that of his brother. He has been Matty’s protector during their nightmare of a childhood. Xander has always put his little brother first and his scars are obvious, especially to Lydia.

Lydia has had issues with her parents but nothing close to what Xander and Matty have had to deal with. Her father is successful and powerful and has a business connection with the band. She doesn’t want to be given anything because of who her father is. She wants to earn everything on her own. She is fiercely independent and driven. Seeing her vulnerable side with Xander was beautiful. 

I could feel the pull between Xander and Lydia during their first meeting, even before they knew they would be involved in a professional sense. Lydia doesn’t want to wreck her career, and Xander knows Matty has feelings for Lydia. But we all know the old saying, “The heart what it wants.” 

It was breathtaking to see Lydia be that rock for Xander. I could almost visibly see him being able to take a breath and relax with her. He could be himself, not Matty’s protector, not the boy who wonders where his next meal was coming from, or if he would have a place to sleep that night. 

I cannot leave this review without mentioning the relationship between Xander and Matty. It was both endearing and heartbreaking. These two loved one another, but their relationship wasn’t equal. Xander was more a father than brother at times, and sometimes missed out on the joy of just being brothers. Matty adored his big brother, but he also yearned for Xander to let him just love him that way. Not only was this a love story between a man and woman but a love story between two brothers.

Santos creates one sexy yet sweet romance, but she adds so much more. Every synopsis of her books in this series just scratches the surface. She knows how to make me swoon, yet she tugs at my heartstrings as well. Her books are so much more than just rock stars and romance. Each word she writes is emotional, and she does a perfect job of combining both romance and emotion while shedding some light on serious issues!!!! I have only just discovered her, and I’m so glad I found out what a writing gem she is!!!!!

The Saint (Haven Grace Prep Book 2) by Kelsey Clayton New Release & Review with Giveaway ($25 Amazon Gift Card and a signed set of books 1 and 2)


The Saint by Kelsey Clayton is LIVE and FREE with KU!

This stunning story stunning and emotionally-moving masterpiece dances between dark and light, teetering between storms and rainbows, as its underlying message of not judging others and seeing more than what’s on the surface touches the heart in every way. The Saint owned every ounce of me.” ~Karen, Bookalicious Babes




A mistake waiting to happen.

Knox Vaughn is the epitome of a bad boy.

He’s trouble in a sexy-as-sin package.

I know it.

They know it.

Even he knows it.

But, it’s like a moth to the flame.

I can’t stay away—even though I’m going to get burned.

You know what they say,

The sinners are much more fun.

And this saint is changing the game.





Delaney Callahan is perfect,

Too perfect for me.

Hell, she’s too perfect for anyone.

She’s an angel,

But with me, she’s playing with the devil.

I’m the last thing a woman like her needs.

And yet, I can’t keep my hands—and mouth off of her.

We’re from two different worlds,

Worlds that can’t possibly work.

I’d do anything for her,

But I can’t be the SAINT she deserves.

OH MY GOODNESS…I have fallen in LOVE with this series. I was hooked on the first book, but this one was even better! I loved Delaney and Knox. This book is a testament that opposites really do attract!!!!

Delaney and Knox are worlds apart…literally. They come from two different backgrounds. Knox has to fight just to survive, and Delaney has been given pretty much anything she wants, but she isn’t your typical spoiled, rich girl. Knox has been hardened by life and doesn’t look much into the future, and Delaney has big plans when she graduates. The two shouldn’t even be in the same orbit, yet the two share people in their lives. Her twin sister is dating his friend, and her best friend’s boyfriend’s fate is intertwined with his. When the two meet, the fireworks explode, and not in a really good way. 

“Go to h*ll,” she spits, hatred burning in her eyes. I smirk, “Oh, Bambi, where do you think I came from?”

Yet, both of them feel something despite the fact that she finds him rude and arrogant. She thinks there is something more underneath that rough exterior. She wants to figure him out, much like a puzzle. She just needs to get past the steel walls he has surrounded himself with.

“He’s beautiful in the way that makes you stop and think. The way that demands your attention and doesn’t let you look away.” 

He knows she can see past his flaws and attitude, and he will do anything possible to keep her from seeing that. The best way he can do that is by pushing her away, but he can’t really seem to do that in a consistent way. As much as he insults her, she can’t stay away from him either. Each knows they pose a huge danger to one another…they could obliterate each other emotionally, but I so wanted them to take that chance on one another. 

OMG!!! The author, Kelsey Clayton, can build on sexual tension, and these two people have that. What started as lust turns into something really beautiful…these two bring out things in each other no one else could. He shows her how to live a little, and she shows him he is worth something. His darkness and her light are a perfect combination. 

As with the first book, it is HUGELY romantic! Yet, there are some surprises and suspense that makes an already great book pretty much perfect!!!!

Let me give you a warning, don’t plan on doing a thing until you finish the book! I started last night and didn’t come up for air until the last page was done! I can’t wait to see where the series is heading next.

Wild For You (Hot Jocks #6) by Kendall Ryan Release Blitz & Review



Wild for You

By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: April 20, 2020


About the Book


He’s growly. Grumpy. Stubborn.

And now, my new roommate.

Walking away from my disastrous last relationship was an easy decision, but moving in with a friend-of-a-friend hockey star who’s rarely home? Not quite as simple, because Grant makes me feel things even I don’t understand.

One thing’s for certain, though. I definitely shouldn’t have crawled into his bed that night.

  • • •

There’s a brightness to her eyes I can’t seem to look away from.

She’s beautiful. Smart. Tempting.

And a little fragile.

I’ve never been anyone’s knight in shining armor, but when Ana needed a place to stay, it was easy to move her in with me.

Not so simple, though, is keeping my hands—or my mouth—to myself. And the night she crawls into my bed and shares her body with me has me conjuring up all kinds of ideas about our future.

Until a big surprise I never saw coming changes everything.


Christie’s Review


I’m completely addicted to this series, and this one is my favorite so far….lots of surprises I wasn’t expecting….but good ones!!!!

I love that each one of the guys gets the chance to tell their story, and it’s now Grant’s turn. He is the quieter, older captain. Some would call him distant, stubborn, and grumpy. Boy, those people don’t have a clue what a man he is. He is drop dead gorgeous,and  he is also a giant. Yet underneath all of that is a gentle, loving soul just waiting to find its soulmate. He will find her in the most unexpected way. 

Ana is the girlfriend of one of the newest teammates. Let’s just say he isn’t the nicest person, and Grant witnesses that one night. He rescues her and gives her his number in case she ever needs him. He really doesn’t expect her to use it, but she does. She needs help in the most desperate way, and he comes riding in like a knight in shining armor…even if he isn’t the typical “hero.” 

The two become platonic roommates. He is just giving her a place to stay. I loved watching these two open up to one another, and they become such great friends. Yet, there is that crackle of electricity between them. One night the lines become blurred and nothing will be the same. 

Even though Grant isn’t sure a relationship is for him, I love that he is all in with Ana. She really doesn’t want to go straight into another relationship after her ex. I can’t blame her. Ryan touches on the serious subject of domestic abuse without delving too deeply. She definitely knows the fragile state victims are in. I liked that she gave Ana the time she needed to discover who she was. Yes, Grant was the hero, but so was Ana. She was able to put herself back together again. They were a fantastic couple!!!!

Ryan is an expert at combining sweet and sexy! She can also craft a story that touches on serious subjects yet give you moments that make you laugh! They are always swoonworthy and leave me with such a warm feeling in my heart and butterflies in my stomach!!!! With this one, she has some surprises in store for you too!!! Another winner!!!!!


If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series of athlete romances is perfect for you!

Beyond the Yew Tree by Rachel Walkley Blog Tour with Review


Beyond the Yew Tree

by Rachel Walkley



Whispers in the courtroom.

Only one juror hears them.

Can Laura unravel the truth by the end of the trial?

In an old courtroom, a hissing voice distracts shy juror, Laura, and at night recurring nightmares transport her to a Victorian gaol and the company of a wretched woman.

Although burdened by her own secret guilt, and struggling to form meaningful relationships, Laura isn’t one to give up easily when faced with an extraordinary situation.

The child-like whispers lead Laura to an old prison graveyard, where she teams up with enthusiastic museum curator, Sean. He believes a missing manuscript is the key to understanding her haunting dreams. But nobody knows if it actually exists.

Laura is confronted with the fate of two people – the man in the dock accused of defrauding a charity for the blind, and the restless spirit of a woman hanged over a century ago for murder. If Sean is the companion she needs in her life, will he believe her when she realises that the two mysteries are converging around a long-forgotten child who only Laura can hear?

Ordinary women.

Extraordinary experiences.

Christie’s Review


An All-Time Favorite Read

A Top Read of 2020

Beyond the Yew Tree is an absolutely stunning, all-encompassing read!

I never knew I could read close to 400 pages in a 24-hour period, but I did. I couldn’t swipe the pages fast enough. It had all the ingredients I love in a really good book…a good story, likeable characters, and a plot that really moves the book along. This one hit on all three for me. 

The synopsis itself caught my attention…a good ghost story. How could I resist? I was right. The story was incredible. It had romance, a ghost or two, mystery, and really two storylines told many, many, many years apart. Every single element in the story connected seamlessly!

Laura was a great character, very complex and complicated. As I continued, the author revealed another layer to her. She evoked such emotion in me. An incident in her past was threatening to determine the rest of her life. She was honest and could be blunt, yet she has serious self-confidence issues. She wanted to love someone and be loved but was afraid to open that part of herself up. It was lovely watching her change. 

Sean, her love interest, was such an amazing guy. He had the ability to get her to open herself in ways no one else had. He believed her story of her dreams and visions, and he genuinely wanted to help her solve the mystery. 

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the two ghosts of the book. I won’t give you their names as that is part of the mystery. They had their own story to tell just like Laura did. Like Laura, I completely connected with them. 

There really was never a dull moment in the book. The dreams and visions, and the ingenious part was including the ghosts’ stories. Rachel Walkley included their story right alongside Laura’s which just made the book even better. 

Authors come in all shapes, sizes, genres, etc. and many can write a good book. However, it takes a talented writer to tell his or her readers a good story which, of course, makes a great book! Rachel Walkley is an incredibly talented storyteller!!!! Beyond the Yew Tree is a book not to be missed!!!!!
