    New Release Friday – wrapping up June 2022

    New Release Friday

    Time for a wrap up of my author friend’s new releases for June 2022

    It feel like I just did the monthly wrap up but here we go again. Here are some of the books my author friends have released this past month. They’re in varying genres and some are sweet and some have heat, so be sure to check those details for yourself.

    Hitched to the RockstarHitched to the Rockstar: A rockstar secret marriage romance

    Urgently needed! A fast marriage and a reputation overhaul for three gorgeous bachelors out to impress. Happily-ever-afters unintentionally included.

    Tori

    A Vegas pre-wedding celebration with my sister, who I lovingly refer to as Bridezilla, was meant to be a chance for her to be the centre of attention all weekend. I chose dowdy outfits, made sure to focus all my attention on her, and even dragged along the huge wedding planning folder for us to pore over every day. If there’s an award for sister-of-the-year, it’s guaranteed to be mine.

    The holy trinity of one too many critiques of my permanently single status, her need to prove to me that I’m not very lovable, and the arrival of a sexy saviour at the bar one night lead to an unexpected wedding and a promise to spend two weeks in Action Valley, far from Bridezilla and her constant demands.

    Action Valley is possibly the most laid back place on earth but it turns out I’ve married the most uptight rockstar on the planet, with a point to prove to his dad. How will he react when he finds out what I do for a living? Because I know his dad won’t approve, and I’d really like to keep my rockstar.

    Jagger

    Another number one smash hit album release. Another Vegas celebration. What can I say? The band and I are creatures of habit. We party in Sin City regularly, always blasting in and leaving the same way. No commitments. No ties. Not ever.

    Except that this year I’ve arrived in Vegas with an ulterior motive. I need to find me a bride to take home to my parents for two weeks of getting-in-their-good-books, and where else do you woo a woman on short notice? Mom only turns seventy once, and my dad will kick my ass if I don’t make it special for her. I’ve never had his approval before, so I’m not sure why I think I can win it now, but what’s more special than a new sensible bride and the inference that grandchildren could finally be on the way?

    Too bad my new dowdy bride turns out to be a fun-loving, banter-filled vixen, instead of the plain Jane I thought would impress my dad with her sweetness.

    Now I’ve got two goals. Get dad off my back, and get the delectable Tori into my bed.

    Getting hitched at first sight has never been so enticing.

    My former captain’s younger sister-in -law is a trouble-making spit fire with a heart of gold. But as everyone in the Arizona Rattlesnakes knows – she’s part of the family and you don’t mess with family. That’s just one of the rules.

    Unlike me, Sasha Wilcox thinks rules are made to be broken. She cares about school and getting my attention, and she’s doing an excellent job of that. I can’t seem to stay away from her and she can’t seem to stay away from trouble. Which means neither can I.

    As the only Australian player in the NHL, I have a lot at stake. My family back home is relying on me and so is my hockey family. If I give into temptation with Sasha, then we’re both going to be in a world of trouble…but only if anyone finds out.

    The two of us are a bad match, no doubt about it. Yet being with her feels so good. We’re skating on thin ice and I have no idea how we can get through the mess we’ve created and be together.

    Bad Match is the second book in the new Arizona Rattlesnakes series, a spinoff from Pippa Green’s successful Minnesota Raiders series (You’ll see some of your old favorites reappear). It can be enjoyed as a standalone novel.

    New Release Friday

    Time for New Release Friday. Here are some new releases my author friends have put out so far this year. I’ve read some but not others. If you read them let me know your thoughts in the comments.

    I hope you find something to enjoy – if so; I know they’d love a review.

    The Paid Bridesmaid: A Novel

    The Paid Bridesmaid

    From Sariah Wilson, the bestselling author of Roommaid, comes a captivating romantic comedy about what happens when a wedding party mixes business with romance.

    Rachel Vinson is a bridesmaid for hire: part confidante, part wedding planner, and one hundred percent pretend BFF. Discretion guaranteed. Her next gig is a destination wedding—livestreamed and sponsored—for an Instagram influencer. That means a paradise of new contacts, which could be a boon to her already booming business. If Rachel can keep the very handsome and slightly too interested best man at bay, that is.

    High-tech entrepreneur Camden Lewis must know: Who is this gorgeous, intelligent, and mysterious woman? Too good to be real. Convinced she’s a corporate spy out to tank his company, Camden’s not letting her out of his sight. But the constant surveillance is also opening his eyes to things about Rachel that he likes. If she’s a spy, she’s certainly the cutest one he’s ever seen.

    As the week’s worth of wedding events march along, Rachel and Camden are learning almost everything there is to know about each other. Rachel’s made a career out of always a bridesmaid…but perhaps there’s a chance for her own trip down the aisle?

    The Buy-In: A Sweet Small-Town Romantic Comedy (Graham Brothers Sweet Rom Com Series Book 1)

    The Buy In

    “You can’t Schitt’s Creek a town, Tank.”
    “And you can’t 
    verb a noun, son.”

    When a family of former pro football players buy a small Texas town, they didn’t intend to start a war with its residents … or to fall in love.

    Ever since his career-ending injury, Pat has bounced from job to job, idea to idea, short-lived relationship to short-lived relationship. But when his father purchases the town of Sheet Cake, Pat suddenly sees his life with clear purpose: get his brothers on board with his dad’s wild idea and win back the one woman who got away.

    Lindy was supposed to be traveling the world, not stuck in a small town, caring for her niece. But she would do anything to keep custody of Jo–even if that looks like a marriage of convenience with the man who already broke her heart once.

    Now if she can only keep herself from falling back in love with her husband…

    This is a small town, marriage of convenience romantic comedy with plenty of sizzle while keeping the bedroom door closed. It’s the first in a spinoff series following Harper’s brothers (from Falling for Your Best Friend). You don’t need to have read the Love Clichés series first to enjoy this book.

    Falling for The Suitor: A sweet, reality show rom-com (Suitor Science Book 1)

    Falling for the Suitor

    Finding love on a reality show isn’t possible. It can’t be real. Or can it?

    “I DEVOURED it in a single day…deliciously fun read!”

    Bexley:

    It wasn’t my idea to try out for The Suitor, because who really falls in love after twelve weeks with every move televised? I’m not good at love… or being camera-ready 24/7. But now that I’m here, I’m in it to win it. To be the last woman standing. To find…love? At least like, because falling in love is too much to ask for.

    Until I meet The Suitor—Grayson Grant, former player on and off the field, and with the smile that can light up a city—and the spark between us makes me forget all the reasons I didn’t want to come on the show.

    I’m going to win this. I’m going to win him.

    Unfortunately, twenty-five other women think the same thing.

    Grayson:

    Getting your heart broken on a reality show will do great things for your popularity. But what viewers don’t know is that my heart wasn’t really broken. I’m back for a second chance to get back into the game and this time I get to choose. There’s twenty-five gorgeous women up for grabs, and twelve weeks to decide.

    And then I meet Bexley. It’s over for me.

    Except there’s all these other women standing in my way of being with Bexley at the end, and my contract clearly states they need a chance too.

    The course of true love never runs straight, especially not on reality TV.

    Falling for The Suitor is the first in the new Suitor Science Series, a charmingly sweet, dual POV, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy full of sparks and power surges. You’ll be rooting for a happily ever after for your new favourite couple. You’ll fall for The Suitor!

    Snap Shot: A One Night Stand, Enemies to Lovers Romance (A Minnesota Raiders Novel)

    Snap Shot

    There’s nothing wrong with a little sexy foreplay for your Vegas one-night stand, am I right? It only becomes a problem when you get home and realize your hook-up now has naked photos of you in your full glory (and I am glorious, don’t worry about that). Now I have no way to track her down.

    Maybe she won’t sell the pictures to the press, even if I am a NHL hockey player and she stands to make a mint. There might still be good–and really, really smokin’ hot–people out there. I’m staking my career on a stranger’s moral compass.

    That’s what I hope for, at least, until I discover that Smithy aka Morgan Smith is now moonlighting as a paparazzi. She needs the money to help her kid and I can’t tell if she’s playing me or if she’s actually a decent woman who won’t resort to blackmail.

    I don’t want to believe she’ll sell my pictures, but she’s in a very, very tight spot. So am I: those pictures can ruin my career.

    Is it wrong that I’m still madly attracted to the one woman who can destroy me?

    I need a solution to this dilemma so we can both move on with our lives and go our separate ways. Because I am not the kind of guy who falls for anyone, least of all his one night stand. No matter how badly I want her.

    SNAP SHOT is Book 6 in the Minnesota Raiders Series

    New release Friday is back!

    I haven’t done this in a while but I have a lot of friends with new books out this week so I thought why not share the excitement.

    These books range from sweet to steamy, so be sure to read their blurbs before downloading if you’re adverse to anything hot.

    Second Shot Pippa Green

    Second Shot: A Fake Relationship Sports Romance (A Minnesota Raiders Novel)

    I’m Seamus Byrne, professional hockey player. I’ve been called a beast on the ice because I never let anything slow me down. But that was before an unfortunate knee injury takes me out of the game for the rest of the current NHL season. As if that isn’t enough, my wife decides she wants a divorce and drops that bomb on me immediately after my injury.

    Talk about kicking a man while he’s down.

    But what’s that old saying about silver linings? My silver lining through it all is my awesome doctor, Nicole Stewart. She’s stubborn and sweet and has a few secrets of her own. She’s also a fighter, and she won’t stop fighting for me to heal and get my career back. Her genuine concern makes me wonder if she and I could ever…

    But I’m all kinds of wrong for her. I should stay away.

    Then I go and do something so impulsive that it puts her future in jeopardy. Now I’m the one who has to fight for her, and I can’t exactly say it’s a hardship.

    Because I’m starting to see how a great woman like Nicole could give a guy like me a second shot at true love.

     

    Whatever it takes

    Whatever It Takes: A Second-Chance Musical Theater Romantic Comedy (A Center Stage Love Story Book 3)

    Leslie:
    Do your best. Be the best. Whatever it takes.

    It sounds like a line from some superhero movie, not a family motto. Except it is the Moose family creed. We even have it on T-shirts. Snazzy apparel aside, it means I’ve grown up with a lot of pressure to, well, be the best.

    Except I’m not. No matter how hard I’ve worked, it’s time to face the fact that I’m never going to have a career as a professional ballerina. I’ll do the next best thing—I can dance in the theatre. Thanks to that eight-week drama camp when I was a teenager, as well as a stubborn-to-the-point-of-foolish drive, I’m ready to take on this challenge, even if it means moving from New York City to a small Upstate town.

    Especially if it means I get to be reunited with the boy I fell in love with at that camp…

    Josh:
    Oh no. I’m not working with her.

    She broke my heart, ghosting me after the most incredible summer together. But now, here she is, and we need her to make The Edison successful. The stakes are high, and if this show works out, there’s a shot I’ll finally get my chance to bring the production I’ve been writing ever since she left me to the stage.

    The show must go on. Whatever it takes.

    USA Today Bestselling Author, Kathryn R. Biel, takes you back to The Edison Theater for Act Three in this powerful and moving tale of second chance love and finally loving yourself.

    Mistle Text: ‘Twas the Text Before Christmas … (An Accidentally in Love Story Book 5)

    ‘Twas the text before Christmas…

    I’m Holly Snow and I’m in desperate need of a miracle.

    I’ve been raising my five-year-old niece, Faith, since she was a baby. As much as I love her, I was twenty-three when my sister died. There was no way I was ready to be a single mom.

    A few months ago, I managed to get Faith a partial scholarship to a ritzy preschool for gifted children. I’ve been struggling to make my portion of the tuition payments ever since. The bottom line is that I need to make more money. At this point, I’ll take any job that allows me to look after Faith while I work—as it doesn’t involve anything weird or illegal.

    So, when my bestie, Toni, tells me her tall, dark, and Scroogy boss needs a personal shopper to take care of all his Christmas needs, I leap at the opportunity.

    When I say yes, I have no idea Mr. Incredible will also end up needing a fake girlfriend.  Apparently, he’s got to prove to his family that he’s the marrying type or they won’t be turning over the keys to their investment brokerage to him come January.

    I should definitely say no, but I’d be crazy not to take the obscene amount of money he’s throwing my way. (Besides, who wouldn’t want to live in the lap of luxury in a Newport mansion for a few days?)

    As a bonus, Faith and I get completely new wardrobes so we can fit in. Now, I just have to promise myself not to fall in love with him.

    Which is easier said than done.

    New Release Friday – the August 2020 edition

    New Release Friday

    Welcome back to New Release Friday – let’s wrap up August new releases by some of my amazing author friends.

    I used to do this every week but 2020 has been that kind of year – I’m hoping to get back to a weekly New Release post but for now here’s a wrap up of new release books from August by some amazing authors I know – the offerings include the sweet and the short, historical, sexy and paranormal. In short, there is something for everyone I hope. Happy reading!

    No Time for Adventure

    No Time for Adventure (The No Brides Club Book 14)

    When six friends make a pact not to let love get in the way of their careers, the No Brides Club is born. But could meeting the right man at the wrong time cause them to break their vows to each other?

    Victoria Hambersby is a charter member of the “No Brides Club” and that’s given her plenty of time to focus on her career. She’s even on the verge of creating a VA program that will help vets with physical and mental challenges stretch their abilities. But that dream hits a major road bump when she’s informed that she must combine her program with that of Joshua Lewis, the owner of “No Limits” extreme adventure company.

    Since two of his sisters are also members of the No Brides Club, Josh is aware of the no romance before career goals motto. So while he finds Vic attractive, the focus needs to stay on finding a way to blend their proposal ideas. But with baggage from their pasts coloring their viewpoints, that’s not going to be easy.

    To get a better idea of what Josh’s company has to offer, Vic agrees to a weekend adventure, which, despite herself, stirs her inner thrill-seeker. Surprisingly they may have more in common than they believe, but can they overcome their defensive barriers to let go of the past and reach for the future?

    Like a Boss

    Like a Boss – Annabel Costa

    Have you ever met someone and hated them instantly?

    Now it’s sixteen years later.

    He’s just as obnoxious and handsome as he ever was, and ten times as wealthy. But he’s not the same—a rock climbing accident a decade earlier has landed him in a wheelchair for life.

    He’s my new boss.

    It was a miracle. I never won anything. But here I was, boarding a plane for an all-expenses paid trip to Makani Island. Alone. I wasn’t expecting anything more than a soul-soothing vacation.

    Then I met him. A total grouch, or so I thought. A guy I wouldn’t want to see again. Ever. But somehow, he convinced me to take a walk on the beach. The walk turned into an all-night conversation. A once in a lifetime connection. We both knew it, but his mega-wealthy parents had wedding plans set out for him already.

    He said he was his own man, but I refused to be a wedge between them. Could I really give him up? The bigger question was…would he let me?

    Island Dreams is a clean short read, and the first in a vacation romance series.

    A tale as old as time, but not as you remember it.

    Reila Barnes has a habit of losing herself in books, not because she loves to read—although she does love to read—but because she’s searching for a long-lost piece of herself. Things happen around her that no one can explain. People in town look at her strangely, always muttering under their breath when she passes, but no one will tell her why she is shunned. Not even her mother and young brother.

    Rejecting a marriage proposal from a handsome but cold-hearted man presents her with a startling bit of evidence to cling to: Reila is a witch.

    Not only is Reila a witch, but she is the one responsible for putting the curse on Merek, the Prince of Bellmare, condemning him to his current beast form.

    What happens when the beast needs to be saved from the beauty?

    Will Reila find a way to break the curse? Will Prince Merek ever learn to trust Reila again? Or is the old saying “true love can conquer anything” just another fairy tale?

    Fans of P.C. Cast, Bella Forest, and J.R. Ward will find themselves enthralled with this magical paranormal romance full of love and betrayal.
