Since my divorce, women have served a solitary purpose for me. The last thing I needed in my life was the headache of a relationship. I had no time or energy for anyone other than my son and my club.
But when a chance encounter with my son’s teacher turned into something I didn’t expect, I tossed aside all my reservations and took a chance.
I should’ve kept my distance.
I should’ve listened when she told me she had doubts about us, suspicions which she was yet to find out were justified, and let her walk away.
When our situation with the club heated up, posing a threat to everyone I knew, I could’ve convinced myself being without her was the best choice.
But I was selfish and refused to picture my life without her.
Will my decision to keep her close put her further in danger, exposing her to a life she never asked for?
And would she be able to find it in her heart to forgive me if my fear ever came true?

Title: Payoff Pitch

Series: Venom Baseball Series Book 1
Author: Kaylee Rose
Release: March 25, 2023
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance/Second Chance Romance
Publisher: Red’s Bookshelf Publishing
Cover Model: Marcel Pospiech

Whoever said out of sight, out of mind must be crazy.
There wasn’t a day since I left that I didn’t think about her.
As much as I wanted to stay with her in Boulder City, it was never an option.
Caroline had big dreams of becoming a chef, and I’d just signed my rookie contract.
It was the chance of a lifetime for both of us.
After years of no contact, I’d assumed I’d lost her for good, but when I injured my pitching arm, I was given a second chance to right the wrongs from the past.
This is my last chance and the biggest payoff pitch of my life.

How quickly we’ve fallen back into old ways surprises me. Maybe I’ll be able to pull off being just friends after all.

“Now, go take a shower while I make lunch.” I clap my hands and rub them together like a mad scientist. “Where do I begin?” Kathy did a fantastic job stocking this refrigerator with all sorts of gourmet foods. I run through a recipe in my head that I think Micha will like and will work with the ingredients on hand.

“Caroline.” Micha’s deep voice close to my ear makes me jump.

“Damn it.” Lost in my thoughts, I hadn’t heard him approach. I clutch my chest. “You scared the crap out of me.”

“Sorry.” His brow furrows like he’s struggling with something.

“What’s wrong?”

“Nothing’s wrong…” He pauses like he’s carefully considering his words, then leans closer and whispers, “…I’m glad you’re here.”

And just like that, the friendly back and forth we had a few seconds ago is obliterated. I’m pulled back to when kissing and exploring each other’s bodies were a regular part of our lives.

The air is thick with sexual tension and no matter how hard I try, I can’t find the energy to look away.

His gaze lands on my lips.

I resist the urge to lick them and draw in a staggered breath. My hands find their way to rest on his hips while my legs turn to jelly.

His blue eyes look deep into mine.

Is he going to kiss me? Do I want him to kiss me? Should I kiss him?

Title: Embrace the Suck

Embrace The Suck is book 8 in the OPS Protector Romance series and should be read in order.

I should have just stayed home.

I thought I could get away and relax.
But that was scrapped the first day when Dash and FNG followed me on vacation.
It was supposed to be a trip to reset my brain.
To get away from all the women flooding work, desperate to be involved and blow stuff up, throw knives, and eat shawarma with the resident psychopath.

But they weren’t the worst part of the trip.

No, that would be the woman that shouldn’t have ever stepped foot in a desert.
Whining and complaining were not supposed to happen on this trip.
But it did.
I should not have had to fight off a rabbit in a yurt.
But I did.
And that bighorn sheep…

But that was only the beginning of the worst vacation known to man.
Then there were bullets, enemies coming from all directions, and the sexiest, most annoying woman directly in the center of it.
And I had to protect her.

They say vacation is fun.
They’ve never been on one with her.
I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.


Title: The Devil’s Hand: Monk (High Stakes, #2)
Author: Shilo West
Genre: Billionaire Romance
Publisher: Crave Publishing, LLC
Publication Date: Mar. 27th, 2023
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR


Something is wrong…


It’s not like I didn’t see it coming. From the moment I saw Juno, I knew. There was no loving her without loving danger.


Sal told me not to let her out of my sight, but I did. I told myself it would be okay. Even as I watched her wave to me from the ferry the last time I saw her. I could feel it, I could feel it in my chest, something was coming for us.


By the time Juno’s texts stopped, I had already called Sal and he told me what I needed to do. I knew he was right, but it didn’t make it any easier.


If I really wanted to find Juno, I needed to reach into my past.


The past was hell to me, and hell is a place I don’t like to revisit. But without those connections, finding Juno would be nearly impossible.


Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and I was well aware I was about to walk straight into the flames.


I prepared myself to do something I never thought I would do. To make a call I never imagined I’d be making. I searched carefully for the words I’d need to say.

I stand back watching the way his muscles flex, moving with the weight of the bags, and I can’t help but be affected by how fucking good he looks. The guy is a walking libido kick. His brown hair is spiked up roughly, his luminous green eyes, with those alluring flecks of gold draw me in. His boyishly handsome face is still somehow rugged with his five o’clock shadow. And don’t even get me started on how fucking sexy his nose ring and his sleeve of tattoos make him. It gives him that bad boy edge that screams at me to stay away, but it’s also the very thing that is drawing me to him. He’s sex personified as I stand here staring at him.
Placing the final bag into the trunk, he turns and lifts up his shirt, wiping a bead of sweat from his brow. My eyes instinctively duck down to catch a glimpse of the sculptured abs beneath his shirt, and I clench my thighs together at the Adonis standing before me.
Sweet baby Jesus.

Title: Bleeding Chaos
Series: Love & Lyrics
Author: Nikki Ash
Release: March 23, 2023
Genre: Friends to Lovers, Rock Star Romance

I lost my first love. This time, I’m going to win the second girl who owns my heart—no matter the stakes.
Being the drummer for Raging Chaos is the only thing that’s kept me going for the past six years. Even the music isn’t enough to drown out the guilt that’s been suffocating me since what happened to Tori.
When Sadie storms into my life, ripping through my trepidations, sorrows, and bitterness, I can’t help but wonder if she could be my second chance.
I could love her, but in order to do that, I have to stop hating myself first.
Easier said than done. Before I have the chance to mend this broken heart, I push Sadie away and hit rock bottom.
The next time I see her, she has a baby. And if that’s not hurtful enough, it’s not just any baby.
It’s my baby.
Bleeding hearts can still beat. I’m living proof of that.
At first, Gage was just someone to take away the pain—until I realized he was battling demons of his own.
I never meant to get too close to the devil with the drumsticks, but once I did, he shoved me out of his life with a force.
My heart might be cracked, but his is completely broken. And trying to save him would destroy us both.
So, I do the right thing and I walk away—not only to protect me but also our unborn baby.
I had no idea who Gage was to the world when I slipped into his bed. Now that I’m out of it, it’s clear he’ll have to clean up his act before he’s father material.
But then we meet again, and I’m reminded of the man he could be.
The man he was born to be, before tragedy struck and the chaos left his heart barely beating.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: Like real life, the characters are far from perfect, make morally gray decisions, and deal with subjects that may be sensitive for some readers. If you are looking for a safe romance, this series is not for you. Trigger warnings (which contain spoilers) can be found on my website.
★★★★★ Controlled Chaos Review – “Do not start this series if you plan to go to bed anytime soon . You fall in love with the characters and you can’t stop turning pages, one of the best series I’ve ever read.”
★★★★★ Silent Chaos Review – “This book broke my heart and mended it at the same time.”
★★★★★ Total Chaos Review – “Wow! This book was so much more than what I was expecting. I am loving the Love & Lyrics series….”
★★★★★ Bleeding Chaos Review – “By far the most emotively consuming, and thus perhaps most the rewarding, of the Love and Lyrics world. Bleeding Chaos will break your heart- but it will also heal it too.”
