Release​ ​Day​ ​–​ ​JUNE​ ​29​th​,​ ​2017 
After​ ​an​ ​unexpected​ ​twist​ ​of​ ​fate,​ ​All-Star​ ​catcher​ ​Easton​ ​Wylder​ ​is​ ​left​ ​questioning​ ​the​ ​loyalty​ ​of everyone​ ​around​ ​him.  
Even​ ​the​ ​woman​ ​who​ ​shares​ ​his​ ​bed,​ ​Scout​ ​Dalton.  
But​ ​if​ ​Easton​ ​thought​ ​being​ ​uprooted​ ​to​ ​the​ ​last​ ​place​ ​he​ ​expected​ ​was​ ​the​ ​only​ ​challenge​ ​life​ ​had​ ​to throw​ ​at​ ​him,​ ​he​ ​was​ ​​dead​​ ​wrong.  
With​ ​an​ ​ailing​ ​shoulder​ ​and​ ​his​ ​career​ ​in​ ​limbo,​ ​his​ ​decision​ ​to​ ​make​ ​an​ ​unexpected​ ​change​ ​leads​ ​him​ ​to question​ ​everything​ ​–​ ​Scout’s​ ​love,​ ​family​ ​loyalties,​ ​and​ ​whether​ ​he​ ​can​ ​conquer​ ​the​ ​one​ ​obstacle​ ​he’s never​ ​been​ ​able​ ​to​ ​overcome.​ ​The​ ​secret​ ​he’s​ ​never​ ​shared​ ​with​ ​anyone. 
He​ ​may​ ​be​ ​a​ ​man​ ​pushed​ ​to​ ​his​ ​limits,​ ​but​ ​he’s​ ​hell-bent​ ​on​ ​proving​ ​his​ ​worth​ ​no​ ​matter​ ​the​ ​cost.

Wow. Just wow. If I didn’t already love K. Bromberg, this duet would have pushed me to the dark side. This author deserves a standing ovation for the conclusion of Easton and Scout’s love story.
“The Player” ,which is book one, left readers hanging by a thread and “The Catch” does not disappoint. Scout and Easton are pushed to the brink over and over. One of my favorite aspects of this love story is that Scout and Easton really do go through hell. The different situations they end up in are insanity, but through it all, they have each other.
The synopsis hints at Easton’s secret. I won’t get into it further than this: I did NOT expect it at all. And I can’t say how much I appreciated that the author took it where she did. My mind was leading me in several different direction, based on the synopsis, and I couldn’t have been more wrong. I usually can guess and I love when an author forces me to be wrong (keeps me on my toes!)
One of my favorite parts of this story is the baseball itself. Easton and Scout both understand “the magic”. As someone who loves baseball, I also get “the magic” and I loved the author conveyed the experience that one gets on a baseball field. There is a certain magic that engulfs you when you enter the gates. The smells, the players, the sun, the sounds. It’s just an experience that is unforgettable.
This review will be short, only because I refuse to ruin this story for another reader. But trust me that you need to see what happens to Easton and Scout. The emotion and angst in this book filled my heart as I read and I found myself laughing to nearly sobbing at points. An incredible finale for an incredible couple.

They live to protect. They live to fight for honor and justice. They live to love the women who have captured their souls. These are the Sons of Texas, from New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.

In The Legend, Callie Reed doesn’t need a man to protect her. An expert sharpshooter and renegade hacker, this Texas-born spitfire’s got the skills and the courage to stand up to any danger―no matter how deadly. But when she becomes the target of a shadowy organization known as the Saints, Callie is forced to team up with the one man she can’t outshoot: the gorgeous, and infuriating, Lone Star legend named Wyatt Loughman…

A Delta Force Colonel with a rock-hard body and stone-cold heart, Wyatt has been teasing and tormenting Callie since they were playmates on his family’s ranch. Of course, he’s wildly attracted to the fiery, strong-willed Callie. But he’s always hidden his feelings behind a wall of Texas tough and military cool, even as he’s burning up with desire. Can Wyatt save Callie’s life―without putting her love in the line of fire?

So this book is considered an inter-connected standalone. Yes, you could read this book by itself, but I would read the first two books (The Hero and The Protector) first. I was able to follow this story but some things were just a bit confusing for me, because I didn’t know the history with the family. Also, it was a lot of characters swirling around and I think it would have made more sense to me had I experienced the first two books.

Generally, I enjoyed the story. Callie, in particular, was really likable and I enjoyed her fighting spirit. She has never had an easy go of things in life, but she always keeps trying and learning from her experiences. I also enjoyed that we see Callie’s character working on coding and other factors that would require her to be intelligent and able to think on her feet. I personally love seeing a heroine who is able to knock the socks off the guys and Callie is definitely that.

Wyatt’s character is the epitome of broody, alpha male. However, even though he was that, he was also sensitive and his softer side did come through during certain parts of the story. Another facet of Wyatt that I loved is that the reader gets to go back in time with he and Callie. We see their past, and we also see Wyatt learning from the past. Callie is trying to protect her heart, but Wyatt seemed to learn his heart.

One thing I really struggled with in this book was some of the things the characters did just didn’t make much sense to me. One scene that stood out was Wyatt carrying Callie to a location. They had a car and could have driven in, but Wyatt feels that’s too risky, so he decided to carry her. To me, this seemed to make them even more vulnerable. There were other times where this happened in the book. I didn’t necessarily mind the character doing one thing vs another, it was just hard for me to see the character actually doing that.

Overall, I enjoyed this story. The story is full of non-stop action. I could honestly seeing this series being made into a movie, or t.v. series because the action is always going. There are no dull moments and I enjoyed that a lot.

Cade by Michelle Smith


Amazon US:

Amazon UK:

Amazon CA:


Cade Wesley has everything he could ever want.

His own thriving bar.

A house on the beach.

Money in his bank account.

His pick of women whenever he wants.

But he’s been so busy lately that he hasn’t had a warm body in his bed in far too long. All that is about to change.

When Nora Jensen walks into Cade’s Tavern, it’s lust at first sight.

In town on business with the freedom to cut loose, why shouldn’t she take a chance on the handsome bartender and indulge in her first ever one-night stand?

Of course, things are never quite that easy…


Are you looking for a good, juicy summer read? Then this is definitely the book you want to take to the beach with you (or the lake, couch, bed, etc). I enjoyed this book a lot and I think one of the main reasons was the fast pace.

Our story starts with Nora, a legal assistant, taking an impromptu trip to Miami for work. There, she meets Cade, and from there, business and pleasure mix immediately.

I liked Nora’s character a lot. I related to Nora and I think a lot of other women would too. She’s working hard, she’s trying to date, she’s responsible. But inside, there is passion. A fire, if you will. Nora hasn’t really found anyone that sort of pulls her out of her shell. But Cade does, almost seamlessly.

Cade’s character is a bit of a workaholic combined with a surfer boy. One aspect I really loved about him was how he was so relaxed about certain things. Nora, at one point, is nervous because when they first meet, they don’t realize that they’ll end up working together in some capacity. But Cade doesn’t see the big deal and he doesn’t let Nora go crazy with her panic. I think for any couple, regardless of what level they’re at, needs that balance. So I appreciated seeing that with these two.

The sex scenes in this book are some of the best I’ve read, to be totally honest. One factor I enjoyed was how even though the scenes were really sexy, they also stayed sweet and sincere. I feel like that can be a hard balance sometimes and this author nailed it.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I’m excited to see what happens with Cade’s brothers in the future books, and to hopefully see more of Nora and Cade too.

Every Last Lie by Mary Kubica


Every Last Lie by Mary Kubica

New York Times bestselling author of THE GOOD GIRL Mary Kubica is back with another exhilarating thriller as a widow’s pursuit of the truth leads her to the darkest corners of the psyche. 

Clara Solberg’s world shatters when her husband and their four-year-old daughter are in a car crash, killing Nick while Maisie is remarkably unharmed. The crash is ruled an accident…until the coming days, when Maisie starts having night terrors that make Clara question what really happened on that fateful afternoon.

Tormented by grief and her obsession that Nick’s death was far more than just an accident, Clara is plunged into a desperate hunt for the truth. Who would have wanted Nick dead? And, more important, why? Clara will stop at nothing to find out—and the truth is only the beginning of this twisted tale of secrets and deceit.

Told in the alternating perspectives of Clara’s investigation and Nick’s last months leading up to the crash, master of suspense Mary Kubica weaves her most chilling thriller to date—one that explores the dark recesses of a mind plagued by grief and shows that some secrets might be better left buried.

I’ve been on a bit of a psychological thriller kick lately. It’s the genre I naturally gravitate towards and this book honestly reminded me why I love the genre so much. This is a book that, although I’ve received an advanced copy, I will be buying a copy for my shelf. This is a book that every one who aspires to write should read.

Mary Kubica pulled me in immediately. Not with the mystery (which is what usually plagues me for hours on end), but with the emotion in this story. The way that I could physically see Clara and Nick, the stress, the pain, the heartbreak. Everything was so vivid; the home, the heat, the stress, the terror. You could physically feel it along with the characters. You could read, and then close your eyes for a moment and see these characters and just want to help them.

One aspect that stood out to me was the insomnia. Nick experiences it in his final months and Clara experiences it after his death. This author shows this to reader so incredibly well. Insomnia for days on end can make you feel like you’re losing your mind. Everything becomes fuzzy and enhanced at the same time. You lose track of things because you’re trying to catch a minute of rest and it just never comes.

Nick was a character that I thought I would hate. But as you see him throughout the story and his love for Clara was so unending, it felt like my heart was ripping apart. Sometimes, you can love someone too much. So much that you never want them to be unhappy or stressed for even a moment.

Clara is someone you want to run and help. I knew she wasn’t real, but in my heart, I kept wanting to find her and help her. The frustration and shame she felt was something I could relate to. You’re in a mess, you don’t really know the magnitude of the mess, and you’re just wading through the muck, trying to deal with it. But you can’t because you don’t know how to, and you don’t even know what exactly is happening.

This book is a masterpiece from beginning to end. I truly can’t recommend it enough.

Love Sex Music by Michelle A. Valentine


Love Sex Music by Michelle A. Valentine

Fame can disappear in an instant…

Fortune is a fleeting fantasy…

Laz Rawlings had them both, until he lost it all…

Laz, a former world-famous music producer screwed up everything thanks to his rock-n-roll lifestyle, but he’s been given an opportunity to prove his genius in the music industry wasn’t a fluke, and he’s hell-bent on not letting history repeat itself. But that’s proving difficult when the young singer he’s tasked with grooming has become the object of his every desire.

Life has been an uphill battle for Aundrea Newton, so when a sexy, tattooed stranger hand delivers her dream of a music career, she’s skeptical. Nothing ever comes easy, and she knows Laz has the power to crush both her career and her heart with his undeniable sex appeal and charismatic swagger.

When the line between mentor and student blurs, both begin to question what’s more important: Love, sex or the music.

**STANDALONE. No Cliffhanger**


If you wanted to call Laz sex on a stick, that would be putting it lightly. From the moment we meet him, the reader already knows that Laz could probably get whatever he wanted, whenever he wants it. Knowing he’s struggling only makes him more appealing. Laz was on top of the worlds, but his addictions derailed him. Now, he’s trying to make his comeback.

Drea, on the other hand, has a little bit of all of us inside her. She doesn’t really see herself as others do, and because of that, she shies away from attention. Not wanting to be in the limelight like her sister, Candace. But when Laz spots Candace and Drea at a nightclub, everything changes.

There are a few things I really loved about this story. Laz and Drea are truly two characters that have had highs and lows in life. And not just on a superficial level, but like major life events. I, personally, enjoyed seeing them overcome those problems and work through it. Another factor that I appreciated was how Laz and Drea opened up to each other. I hope this isn’t construed as a spoiler but I  dislike books where the characters are keeping secrets and then a huge blowup happens. Laz and Drea are open with each other for the entire book. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed that.

I do wish this book had been a little longer. In the back half, there is a lot of action, which I loved. I appreciated all the places that the author took this story, I only wish it had a little more time to develop. I say this because in some parts, things felt a little rushed. It certainly wouldn’t be enough to deter me from recommending this book, I just wanted to know more.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. My favorite parts were honestly the more tender moments between Drea and Laz. I thought the author did a great job showing the reader why this couple was so attracted to each other and why they worked. It was a fantastic, quick read that should definitely be on your summer TBR list.


The Surgeon’s Cinderella by Susan Carlisle

The Surgeon's Cinderella

The Surgeon’s Cinderella by Susan Carlisle

From matchmaker…to perfect match?

Whitney Thomason prides herself on being able to find the perfect partner for anyone, but heart surgeon Tanner Locke is a real challenge! He wants to settle down, but he’s adamant there’ll be no falling in love…

When Whitney’s candidate falls through, it’s up to her to be the girlfriend Tanner needs for his weekend business getaway, but two days in close proximity proves torturous. They know giving in to temptation is a bad idea, but desire is more powerful than reason…

This is my first book from Susan Carlisle, but it won’t be my last. I really loved the story of Tanner and Whitney. I say the story of them, and not their story because while this is a love story, this book also encompasses a lot of the challenges that both characters have to face themselves.

Whitney runs a matchmaking business and Tanner becomes a client. Whitney knew who Tanner was in college, but he had no idea who she was. Now, in college, Whitney was heavier and has since lost weight. However, she still carries insecurities with her. For me, this was actually one of my favorite parts of Whitney’s character. I enjoyed seeing a real character. Whitney doesn’t dress that well, partly because I felt she was still hiding herself. Then we see that she’s very aware of what she eats and how the world saw her when she was heavier. I think we can all say we’re against body shaming and whatnot, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t still happen or that you don’t feel still feel the sting of people’s words. So to see a character dealing with that was an aspect that I appreciated.

Tanner was harder for me to like. He was actually somewhat harsh to Whitney on a few occasions. But I almost enjoyed that because as he gets to know Whitney more, you can see how he becomes more comfortable with himself in Whitney’s presence.

I hinted at this earlier but one thing that really stood out to me is that even while Whitney and Tanner are exploring their relationship, both have insecurities and issues they need to deal with on their own. Finding love can’t magically fix your problems and I appreciated that a book touched on that. Until Tanner and Whitney address their issues, they really can’t move forward. It’s sort of like that saying of you can’t love someone else until you love yourself.

I would definitely recommend this book. It was an easy read and the story flowed really well. I enjoyed that I got the goodness of a love story but that the author included issues that people do face everyday. It was an all-around great reading experience.

Don’t You Cry by Mary Kubica

Don't You Cry

Don’t You Cry by Mary Kubica

From the author of the New York Times bestseller everyone is talking about THE GOOD GIRL, Mary Kubica returns an electrifying and addictive tale of deceit and obsession.

In downtown Chicago, a young woman named Esther Vaughan disappears from her apartment without a trace. A haunting letter addressed to My Dearest is found among her possessions, leaving her friend and roommate Quinn Collins to wonder where Esther is and whether or not she’s the person Quinn thought she knew.

Meanwhile, in a small Michigan harbor town an hour outside Chicago, a mysterious woman appears in the quiet coffee shop where eighteen-year-old Alex Gallo works as a dishwasher. He is immediately drawn to her charm and beauty, but what starts as an innocent crush quickly spirals into something far more dark and sinister than he ever expected.

As Quinn searches for answers about Esther, and Alex is drawn further under the stranger’s spell, master of suspense Mary Kubica takes readers on a taut and twisted thrill ride that builds to a stunning conclusion and shows that no matter how fast and far we run, the past always catches up with us in the end.

I finished this book a week or so ago. I was needing a day to let this book settle in my system, but I still am just blown away by it and I really struggle to find the words for this story.

This book was an absolute mind-fuck. I was so completely twisted and turned around, trying to understand what was happening, what was real. I kept coming back to this book over and over. I’d read for a bit, put it down so I could get something done, and then I’d have my nose right back in it because even when I wasn’t reading, it consumed my thoughts.

Quinn and Esther are roommates and when Esther goes missing, it causes Quinn to question everything in her life. Quinn is described as being a bit of a slow learner, but I personally didn’t see that in her character at all. I felt more like she was a young girl just trying to find her way, and constantly being compared to her over-achiever sister. Which is how she stumbles on Esther, who happens to be looking for a roommate. The two have a great friendship and Esther sounds like the person you’d love to have as your roommate. But are things always what they seem?

When Esther goes missing, Quinn starts finding out more and more about Esther. About her last roommate, secret letters, shredded pictures and documents. Who is Esther Vaughan?

Meanwhile, in a small Michigan town, Alex stops a bewitching girl sitting in the diner he works at. A strange friendship is born between the two. Alex is incredibly smart, but taking care of his alcoholic father consumes his time and money. So while Alex did have a scholarship to a great college, he couldn’t take it because of his father. As a reader, your heart breaks for Alex. From the moment I read his character, I felt he deserved so much better than what he had.

Overall, I loved this story. It hooked me in from the first page. That said, I did feel like the ending was somewhat anti-climactic. I’m unsure if I like that or not, simply because the ending is such a shock to begin with. I’m torn on if I feel like I wanted more from the ending or if I’m happy the way things were. Either way, this story will leave your jaw hanging open at the end because the end is more insane than anything your mind could ever conjure up on it’s own.
