Book Review: Block's Road (Riot MC Biloxi #6) by Karen Renee



A night with a vigilante biker wasn’t my wisest choice.
I can’t resist the cocky motorcycle man, even though Block is old enough to be my father. He said he didn’t do commitments, which made it the perfect night of fun.
Except afterward, nobody else appeals to me.

Block shows up weeks later, and I break my one-time-only rule. I won’t fall for his arrogant smile and burly, tattooed build. It’s one last night to get him out of my system. Neither of us wants a relationship. Every wicked thing he does to me feels different - like it could be the real thing.

When a threat lands on my doorstep, one final night with Block becomes a three-day-weekend. He insists on helping me resolve my problems which only brings us closer together.
The day after our weekend together, I find out he’s my new boss.

Life always shoots me down and being with Block is no different.

Problem is, Block thinks we can be an exception.
I don’t want to be an exception. We should quit while we can.

If you love a sassy heroine, one-night-to-forever romance, and an alpha hero who sees what he wants and won’t let go, then you’ll love Block’s Road.

My Review - 5 of 5 stars - 

I did not want to put this book down. I loved the connection and interactions between Heidi and Block. Block was so protective of Heidi and patient with her resistance to sharing her history. She battled her past to try and become a better person. With the danger coming at them on top of it all, their journey was quite a roller coaster. I really enjoyed this story and have enjoyed the series, and I recommend both.

Book Review: Bad Romance (Billionaire's Club #16) by Elise Faber



She’d been broken.
He was determined to help her put the pieces back together.

Looking after the woman he’d claimed as his was in Asher’s blood.
It was what a Hutchins man did.
Except…he hadn’t.
He hadn’t been there for Melody when she had needed him the most.
And now she was…
But he couldn’t go back, couldn’t change the past.
So, he was going to do the only thing he could.
He was going to gather up every single piece of her.
And he was going to make her whole.

My Review - 4 of 5 stars - 

This was an interesting story with some gritty moments, steamy moments, and more. Mel had a rough past, which snuck up on her again, which she tried to get over. Ash had his own issues and tried to keep some distance from Mel. Together, they were one hot couple and helped each other heal. I enjoyed this story.

Book Review: Valentine's Eve (Royal Bastards MC: Nashville, TN #7) by Morgan Jane Mitchell



From USA Today Bestselling Author Morgan Jane Mitchell comes the next installment in her Royal Bastards MC: Nashville, TN Chapter, Valentine's Eve.

Kingpin warned her it'd be better to lie. When she didn't take his advice, Eve's life went spiraling out of control. Although, that's partly his fault. It does take two to tango, after all. But now Eve can have all she ever wanted, Hallow and a baby. All she has to do is lie. All Kingpin has to do is keep quiet. And ignore Eve being happy with another man. Besides, he already has a loving wife and twins on the way.

What could go wrong?

My Review - 4 of 5 stars - 

I enjoyed this story, though I had a tough time following Eve's feelings between the two men. She had been hurt by Hallow, who continued to hurt her, and she did not want to let him go. Her soul was drawn to Kingpin, which led to a web of lies. Their connection seemed so much hotter and stronger, and I was very happy things worked out the way they did.

Book Review: A Texan's Touch (Whispering Springs, Texas #10) by Cynthia D'Alba



What happens when fate blows your life to hell? An ugly duckling meets the beast story.

Army Major Dax Cooper’s life blew up with the IED that took his leg and most of his Delta Forces team. Medically retired, nightly dreams torture him, not only forcing him to relive the explosion time after time, but also the loss of the future he desired and is now denied. Unfocused and adrift, he follows his brother to Whispering Springs, Texas to lie low and think.

Psychologist Cora Belle Lambert understands what it’s like to be an outsider. Sandwiched between two gorgeous and successful sisters, one a former Miss Texas and the other the current high school homecoming queen, and blessed a stunningly beautiful mother, she considers herself to be the ugly duckling in her family. Determined to prove her worth, she takes on broken kids who need an avenging angel on their side. Kids. Never adults and definitely not an ex-military alpha male with sexy hard edges and mesmerizing azure-blue eyes.

Forced together on a mercy date set up by their mothers, each recognizes untapped promise in the other. Can these two broken people overcome the cruel hand of fate or will they allow their demons within to gleefully dance on their dreams?

My Review - 4 of 5 stars - 

I enjoyed this story. Cori and Dax had their issues from their pasts that have held them back from finding a forever love. Pushed together, they found a way to heal each other. I loved how Cori was determined to see beyond Dax's injuries and help him move forward. There were moments between these two that I felt in my heart.

Michael Boone has just one goal: to get traded to his hometown team so he can be closer to his family. But when a runaway bride who happens to be his coach’s daughter jumps into his car to escape Mr. Wrong, the heat is on ... in more ways than one.


I’m supposed to be a guest at my coach’s daughter’s wedding to a player from another team, but instead I find myself helping her escape it. The timing couldn’t be worse—I have to stay in Coach’s good graces to secure the trade I need. But when the sexy, newly single redhead with legs for days shows up in my life again, I can’t say no.


After escaping marriage to a man who made me feel like I was never enough, I plan to focus entirely on completing my dissertation. Science has never let me down—I can avoid emotional entanglements by focusing on cold, hard data. But when I’m powerfully drawn to a man who is warm and, okay, I’ll admit it—also hard—all bets are off. Mr. Right Now is exactly what I need, until both of us find ourselves wanting the one thing we can’t have—more.

She loved being a doctor.
She didn’t love Connor Jackson.

Picking. Poking. Prodding. The man had never met a button he didn’t like to push. And since Raven had never met a fight that she didn’t see through to the end, when she and Connor were together…


Then she got hurt—really hurt—and Connor decided that she needed looking after.

And that was when she discovered that maybe what she felt for Connor wasn’t hate at all.

Everything changed one night in Lake Bittersweet…

Successful model Bliss Gault is known for her smile and her sunshiny attitude. The youngest child of rock legend Steven Gault, everyone sees her as the flaky, flighty member of the family. And why wouldn’t they, when she has a habit of getting in and out of messes by the skin of her teeth? But when she returns to Lake Bittersweet for her sister’s wedding with an international mess in tow…this time, she might be in over her head.

FBI Agent Earl Granger is in Minnesota to help an old Army buddy, using “head of security” for Bliss Gault as his cover. Within seconds of meeting her, the stunning blond is making him crazy with her whimsy and her sage-burning. He’s a gruff, fact-focused professional. There’s no way he’s letting her distract him from his real purpose—discovering the identity of his father. She can save the smiles and seduction act for someone else.

But fate has something very different in store for these two total opposites. From international mayhem to a passion they never saw coming…some seductions are impossible to resist.

When I moved from Italy to play for the Vegas Venom, it was a dream come true. My parents died when I was young, and I thought that being part of the team would be like being a part of a family.

I was wrong.

It turns out that I’m on thin ice. With everyone, really, but especially with Madison McKay.

Madison has lived rent free in my head since I met her at a photo shoot and I accidentally insulted her. She’s a curvy goddess, but when I fumbled over my words she didn’t let me dig myself out of the hole I created.

It doesn’t help that my so-called friends like to tease me, purposely leading me down the wrong road. Or that my roommate is a grumpy veteran player who only speaks in three word sentences.

Now that Madison is in Las Vegas full time, I figure it’s my second chance.

When I look at her, I already see our future together. She’s mine. I just have to convince her that I’m worth another look.

But I’m about to have to convince her of a whole lot more.

When the Venom release me from the team I’m faced with a decision. I either have to return to Italy or figure out a way to stay in the states…legally.

Will Madison take a chance on forever with me or will I be heading back to my homeland alone?
