Blitz: The Science of Attraction (A Mackenzie Country Story #3) by Jay Hogan with an excerpt

The Science of Attraction

Series: A Mackenzie Country Story, #3

by Jay Hogan

Release date: February 22nd, 2024

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, LGBTQ+, Romance


I am Mackenzie Country born and bred. Farming the high country runs in my blood, like my father, and his father, and my great grandfather before him. My future has been mapped out for me since the day I was born. Or at least it was, until Liam Skelton walks onto Lane Station, lights a fire in my heart, and turns my whole world upside down.

Bossy, tatted, and out and proud, Liam is everything my father abhors.
And I want him.

But having a chance with Liam means risking everything. My family. My future. And my life in these mountains that I love.
Still, the heart wants what it wants, and mine wants Liam.

With so many things against us, maybe we don’t have a chance.
Maybe we’ll crash and burn.
Or maybe we’ll find a way to have it all.



When we arrived back at the cottage, Jules looked pretty much like I figured I did—grilled to within an inch of his life. I’d barely stepped in the door when he grabbed my hand and pulled me back out onto the veranda and proceeded to kiss me like he hadn’t seen me for months. I loved it, along with far too much of the man actually doing it considering I’d only known him a month.

“I’m so sorry,” he apologised, brushing my hair out of my eyes. “How bad were they?”

“It was fine,” I reassured him. “I just have to be nice to you if I don’t want my balls fed to Holden’s stud Angus bull while they’re still attached. A terrifying thought if I let myself dwell on it too much.”

“Oh god,” he moaned. “I’m gonna kill him.”

I laughed and grabbed his arm before he could follow through. “Forget it. Besides—” I lifted up on my toes and pressed our lips together. “—I have zero intention of being anything other than very, very nice to you.” I palmed his dick through his jeans and squeezed. “So, I figure I’m safe.”

His eyes rolled back in his head and he thrust into my hand, adding in a strangled voice, “The kennel shed out back should be friend-free if we hurry.”

“No time for that.” Zach waggled his brows at us through the window.

“Fuck me,” Jules groaned under his breath.

“I heard that.” Zach smirked. “But Gil needs a hand on the barbecue and your name was volunteered.”

“Go on.” I gave Jules a shove toward the front door and then slapped his butt on the way. “We have all night.”

He grumbled over his shoulder, “If there’s anything left of my nerves after the Gordon Ramsey of the Mackenzie is done using me as his bitch.”

I laughed and gave him another shove.

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Claudia Burgoa once again hits readers with an inspiring and gut-wrenching love story duet. 

Lightning can strike the same place more than once. 

The first time, it robbed me of my high school sweetheart.

Shattering our forever into a million pieces. 

I was just sixteen.

Too young to understand the medical terms, that meant she was gone. 

Too na├»ve to see that forever was nothing but a lie. 

Now, years later, I met Ameline.

I tried not to fall in love, but it was impossible.

She gathered all my broken pieces and put me back together.

I had promised myself never to love again.

To avoid this agony. 

And I fell for the illusion of forever once more. 

At least until I lost her. 

Now I'm left questioning everything.

What does forever mean when it's built on a foundation of pain and loss? 

How do you move on when lightning keeps targeting your heart?

Why do people believe in forever when it’s just a lie?

The Lies About Forever is book one of the Impossibly Possible duet that ends on a jarring cliffhanger that will break you into a million pieces.

Release: Infinitely Mine (Holiday Royal Bastards MC, Tonopah, NV #17) by Nikki Landis with my review

Infinitely Mine

Series: Holiday RBMC Tonopah, NV

by Nikki Landis

Release Date: February 23, 2024

Genres/Tropes: MC Romance, Paranormal Romance, Romantic Suspense, Vigilante Justice, Organized Crime, Single Mom, Holiday Romance, Touch Her & Die




As the V.P. for the Tonopah RBMC, I make it my job to protect the club, its secrets, and my pres, Grim.
I'm his right-hand man and the one he trusts above all others.
I take pride in my organizational skills and ability to wrangle my brothers, keeping things uncomplicated for Grim.
Everything is just how I want it.
Until I find a single mom and her young son broken down on the side of the road.
Rowen Casey and little Jacob are in trouble and need a protector.
I'm the best man for the job. I just have to convince Rowen.
But taking on this role and getting close to the single mom and her sweet son awakens a deep, primitive need inside me.
I don't just want to keep Rowen and Jacob safe. I have to make them mine.
And if I need to slash through every obstacle and threat, including the vicious threads of her past, I will.
The Reaper has claimed Rowen and no one is standing in our way.

Infinitely Mine can be read as a standalone, but the series is best enjoyed when read in order since ongoing storylines and characters appear throughout and overlap. There are steamy scenes, biker slang, violence, dark content, a paranormal REAPER twist, and, of course, an HEA. You'll find a single, determined mom and a possessive, alpha, six-foot-seven protector who finally meets his match.

My Review - 5 of 5 stars - 

Hard to put down. The tempo never really slowed down. The danger and tragedy surrounding Rowen kept her driven to protect her son. Fate or something more brought them into Mammoth's world. The chemistry, support, and love were strong from the start. With a little push, trust came as well. I loved Rowen's maternal instincts, how they gave her strength to accept all around her. She was kind, loving, and willing to let her walls down. I am glad that Mammoth found his strong woman and a family in one. He so spoiled both like he couldn't help himself. The pull of the steamy scenes as well as the darker ones kept my emotions on edge. Loved it.

Release Boost: Power Play (L.A. Phantoms #1) by Kat Mizera

Power Play 

by Kat Mizera 

Available now!

Available on All Platforms

The Phantoms are back with a vengeance… and the City of Angels will never be the same.

I never asked for the spotlight, but inheriting a pro hockey team pulls me into a world of chaos.

All eyes are on me now.

I’m no stranger to the world of hockey but watching from the sidelines and calling the shots are two very different things. Especially when you’re not wanted.

It’s time for me to take charge and clean house.

When I need people I can trust, one man comes to mind… my ex. He’s one of the best goalies in the league, and despite what went down between us, he’s still in my corner.

It’s our little arrangement off the ice that complicates things.

If I’m going to make my power play, I need him by my side, but that means keeping our heads in the game, and our hearts out of the equation.

About the Author:

USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she's called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She's never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she'd probably choose the west coast.

A typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max), Kat can usually be found scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) - traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible.

Kat's been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article--a review of a rock concert--for $10 in 1985. Since then she's been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

As you can guess from her Las Vegas Sidewinders series, Kat loves hockey and occasionally writes articles about her favorite team, the Florida Panthers. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There's something enticing about hockey players and romance...

Klay “Reaper” Ulrich regrets hurting Jinx and abandoning her the way he did. After turning his back on his career, he chases after the woman he loves. Reaper reenters her life without warning, determined to win her back. He’ll make her understand he had no other option. Both their lives depended on the choice he made the fateful day he lost her.

Then an enemy from Reaper’s past surfaces in Alaska. All of the secrets and lies Reaper has told come back to haunt him. When Jinx is taken, Reaper will kill to get her back. But with time running out and Jinx left in the Wilds of Alaska, she’ll have to learn it’s not just physical strength but heart that she needs to save herself.

My Review - 4 1/2 of 5 stars - 

4 1/2 stars for me. This was the reunion of Jinx and Reaper. There were plenty of ups and downs, challenges, and dangerous situations. The attraction between Jinx and Reaper was strong enough to survive all of this despite distrust and misunderstandings. I loved them as a couple, but I also enjoyed the love and support of the Devil's Handmaidens MC. Family was a strong pull. I recommend this story.
