COVER REVEAL: The Last Guy

Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise have a new book coming out soon, and it sounds scrumptious!


The Last Guy, by Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise
Publish Date:
June 12, 2017
Publisher: ILM Productions
Genre: adult contemporary romance

(Synopsis) From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and international bestselling author Tia Louise…


The first rule of office romance is don’t do it—especially if your dream is to hold the anchor spot on the nightly news and your boss is trying to get you fired.


But one look at Cade Hill, the sexy new sports director, and uptight reporter Rebecca Fieldstone is daydreaming about other things.


Sex in his office…


Sex in the on-set kitchen…


Sex in the supply closet…


She can’t stop thinking about the former NFL quarterback and how perfect he’d look between her sheets—except he’s an arrogant jerk with a huge…ego.


He’s the last guy she’d ever have a one-night stand with.


Cade Hill draws a thick professional line on office romance—until it comes to the hyper-focused Rebecca. He wants her, and he gets his wish when a chance encounter has them having the hottest sex of their lives.


It’s just a hook-up, she says.


When can we do it again? he says.


With Rebecca determined to keep Cade in the friend zone, it’s going to be an uphill battle for Cade to convince her he’s the last guy she’ll ever want.

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and the “Queen of Hot Romance” Tia Louise are not a secret duo, but simply themselves.

Great friends, former English teachers, and southern gals in real life, they’ve teamed up to bring you laugh-out-loud naughty romances with strong leading ladies and sexy alpha males who know how to please their women—and who sometimes you just want to slap.

BLOG TOUR REVIEW: Sexy Stranger


I love me some Kendall Ryan. And I LOVED me some Sexy Stranger.

Sexy Stranger, by Kendall Ryan
Publish Date:
May 23, 2017
Publisher: self-published
Format: e-ARC, provided by the author and Inkslinger PR
Genre: adult contemporary romance
To Buy: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Rating: 4.5 STARS


(Synopsis) He's rude. Arrogant. And too hot to handle.

And she's stranded with him for an entire week.

He knows the sexy stranger doesn't belong in his small town, but he's determined to keep her there. The second she opens her smart mouth, he wants to swap a whole lot more than insults with her.

She’s got a secret. But he’s got his own agenda.

Buckle up.

These fish-out-of-water books are so much freaking fun. Take a metropolitan city girl and drop her in the middle of nowhere without the comforts of home, and she's forced to focus on her surroundings in a way she wouldn't have otherwise. And it also results in tons of super awkward moments. #bonus

In Sexy Stranger, Charlotte is road tripping from NYC to Los Angeles when her $120K car breaks down in a tiny Texas town with spotty cell service, no Uber and nosey townspeople. She's forced to wait a week for her car to get fixed, which gives her lots of time to observe the wildlife - namely local  boy Luke and his twin brother Duke (cue the Dukes of Hazard fantasies). Too bad, she pissed him off and insulted his brother in their first meeting. 

Luke and his family have been struggling to make a go of his family's whiskey business since his parents died. He's a family man - would love to settle down and have some kids, and even though Charlotte is beautiful and smart and interesting, she's not sticking around, so she's not part of his master plan. But, he decides she could be a fun distraction. 

If I only had Charlotte until her car was fixed, I was going to make the most of it.

I gotta admit - I wasn't a big Charlotte fan at all. She blew into town with her judgy attitude and inappropriate attire and I just couldn't wait for someone to put her in her place. I didn't even feel bad that she was obviously running from a situation at home. 

But, I also gotta admit that Charlotte grew on me very quickly. Once she was forced to accept her situation and make the most of it, she did just that. She used her marketing skills to help out Luke's business. She got to know some of the townspeople and realized she liked them. And she started to realize that there are wonderful things about small towns. 

I wasn't used to a man who had nothing to offer but himself and yet gave it so freely - letting his interest be known, to hell with the consequences.

There's hurt in both Luke's past and in Charlotte's and in both cases, that hurt gets in the way of their happiness. But, I was so pleased to see how even just one week of small town living affected Charlotte and her perspective on both hers and Luke's situations. It showed so much growth on her part in just a short time. I loved that about her. 

I know Sexy Stranger is just a standalone, but I would LOVE to see more stories from this town. Duke needs to stop his manwhoring ways and settle down - preferably with Charlotte's bestie Valentina. And their little sister Molly needs to find a good man. If their stories all end up as wonderful as Luke's, then they can't lose. 

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of more than two dozen titles, Kendall Ryan has sold over 1.5 million books and her books have been translated into several languages in countries around the world.

WAITING ON WEDNESDAY


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we get to flail about books we're dying to get our grabby hands on.


Tycoon, by Katy Evans
Publish Date:
June 20, 2017
Publisher: self-published
Genre: adult contemporary romance
To Buy: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

(Synopsis) He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.

Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.

That man is gone.

In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.

He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.

The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.

It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.

I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.

And he doesn’t.

Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.

Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.

He's assessing every piece of me, to the point I've never felt so bare.

I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.

Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.

Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.
I am a super big fan of Katy Evans, so I always eagerly await her new releases, and Tycoon is no different. It sounds sexy and broody and completely awesome. I can't wait.
