Willa Doon has always been shy. Her quiet demeanor was something she’s always embraced. That is, until Jackson Page moves to town. The one man she desperately wants to take notice struggles to remember her name.

Year after year, Willa stands by, watching as the bartender slash playboy drowns his demons in beer and sex. Then one night, he shows up at her door, suddenly aware that the girl he’s seen around Lark Cove is now a beautiful woman.

Except what he doesn’t remember is that this visit isn’t his first. They spent a night together once before. A night he’s forgotten, thanks to a bottle of tequila.

Release Blitz: Love Machine by Kendal Ryan





A best-friends-to lovers standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan.

After a rather uncomfortable ladies’ night involving a cucumber-wielding instructor with judgy eyes, I’m forced to admit my weaknesses. Rather than point blame at my lack of a sex life, I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work.

As a junior executive who’s clawed her way up the corporate ladder, failure is not in my vocabulary. Confident and bold in other areas of my life, I have to admit it’s time to up my bedroom game.

Asking my friend Slate Cruz is really the only option. Slate is like a walking billboard for sex. The man gets more ass than a toilet seat. There’s no way I’ll want more from this playboy than a little inspiration to revive my inner sex kitten.

Except, what happens if I do?






4 Stars
Review by Lisa Kane

What if you just wanted to be better at sex? What would you do, who would you do? Who would you ask for help? Keaton Henly, a software saleswoman is smart and beautiful and feels so out of place when it comes to men. She just doesn't have "it" like her friends. She wants to be better. But what's a gal to do?

I met Slate during my freshman year of college through mutual friends, and now it seems like we've known each other forever. 

Keaton's best friend is Slate Cruz, manwhore extraordinaire! Gorgeous, talented and the guy she trusts most in this world. Who better than to teach her how to be better at sex?

One drunken night and a slew of texts later, she's left Slate wondering if she's for real or not.

How about you stop making jokes and help me become a better lover?

Slate thinks maybe she won't remember any of this the next day.

But just in case she does,

If she wants me to be her personal love machine, let's face it, I'll jump at the chance. 

Now before I go on, let me just throw this out there...there's a paragraph where Keaton is thinking how yummy Slate looks. His toned chest...and his "handsome Adam's apple." Now I think almost any part of the human body can be sexy, but never, ever have I thought about a man's Adam's apple. I will have to rethink what I've always thought was sexy on a man, lol.

Let's continue...

Slate agrees to be Keaton's wingman. I think she back peddles a bit but still wants his help. He's very forthcoming with the encouraging words:

"Literally any man in this room would be honored to introduce his dick to you, Keaton." 

Can you imagine a stronger friendship than theirs?

Only it seems maybe Keaton doesn't need too much help after all. Slate might be just a little conflicted about all of this.

"Hey, listen buddy...sorry, but tonight's gonna be a no-go."
Greg blinks like an owl behind those big glasses. "Why?"
"She had wicked diarrhea earlier. If she's been in the bathroom that long, I'm guessing her bowels must be flaring up again."


Yep, he totally threw Keaton under the irritable-bowel bus.

Love Machine is funny and a little angsty and has some really poignant moments. Two friends who love each other like crazy, just might love each other in a crazy way.

"Love is friendship, but it is friendship with fire in its belly."

Review: All My Perfects by Colleen Hoover





Quinn and Graham have a perfect love story, but their unique connection is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart, day by heartbreaking day. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair. So do they risk it? Is their history worth saving?

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple struggling with a relatable issue – infertility – whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. In Colleen Hoover’s inimitable style and brilliant narrative voice, this heartbreaking page-turner asks: Can a resounding love with a fairytale beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?


5 stars 
Review by Trinette Dungee

Are you ready to cry? Are you prepared to have your heart pulled so hard that you’ll want to rip it out? Are you ready to just curl up in a ball and sit in a dark corner for about a day or two? If not then I suggest you set this book aside. 
It’s very hard to write about a Colleen Hoover book because you have so many emotions going through you; you just can’t put them into words. Then you have the task of expressing how you feel without giving away too much because you want everyone to experience everything exactly the way you did. 
What makes Graham and Quinn’s story a little different is that you go through and established relationship, meaning….they are married. You get a picture of their before they were married life and their after they were married life. Their marriage suffers some serious blows and you go through the rough times with them. There’s a point in the book, actually a couple of points, when I had to prepare myself for the possibility that these two might not make….whether they did or not, I won’t say.  As usual, Colleen writes so that you literally feel what her characters feel. When their feelings are hurt you get that tightening in your chest. When sadness takes over them, you have to put the book down and be sad too. 
As for the characters, I have to say I was much more team Graham than I was team Quinn…not that you had to pick a team. I just felt like Quinn kept so much to herself that Graham was damned if he did and damned if he didn’t; however, there times when I wished he showed a little more emotion. Quinn seemed to be so wrapped up in her own head sometimes that she was just too much to take. Graham and Quinn were characters that all of us probably know someone like them, they were so relatable and real and I think that’s the other thing that really made me like this book…the entire situation could have happened to anyone you know, or to you. 
For as heartbreaking as this story was, I really enjoyed it. I have to say the flashback weren’t so enjoyable, only because I felt like the minute you got into the meat of scene, it ended and you were thrown a flashback, but then again…that probably heightened the level of anxiety that made this a good read. If there was one thing this book didn’t have that I would have liked would have been Graham’s POV, this is told strictly from Quinn’s POV. 
In the end Colleen Hoover has given us another book that will have you totally in your feelings by the end. Thank goodness her books are stretched out, there’s no way I could read more than two of her books a year. I’d be on someone’s couch for sure seeking therapy.

4.5 Stars
Review by Jen Skewes

Giovanni was a roller coaster ride filled with angst, drama, suspense, darkness, hurt and so much more.  It was everything that I love and expect from a Natasha Knight novel .   And as always she certainly delivered.  A hero that is so bad you should hate him but love anyway.  A feisty heroine who is strong and knows how to fight back.  And the story between the two of them that is dark and sexy all mixed into one. 

Giovanni is looking for Alessandro Estrella and he goes to the one person who should know where he is, his twin sister Emilia. She has been in hiding for a few years now and swears that she knows nothing about his whereabouts.  Whether Giovanno believes her or not, it does not matter.  He is not letting her go.  Aside from the attraction he feels towards her, he knows that she is hiding something, that she has a story to tell and he wants to know what it is.  He may have went after her because he needs her, but as times goes on things between them take a turn that neither one of them expected.  She needs him in ways she doesn’t want to admit and in a way he needs and wants her just the same.  She may hate him but her body is telling a different story.  Can she truly trust Giovanni, not only with her life but her heart?

I love Ms. Knight’s writing and always love wen she has a new book.  I love the mafia books that are dark and sexy but not too over the top.  There is just the right amount of angst, drama and darkness.  I will admit that there were moments that were a little hard to take in, but Ms. Knight still wrote it in a way where she seems to know where to draw the line, so to speak.

I loved ths book and I loved Goiovannit and Emilia’s story even more.  My God Emilia has been threw so much.  I too knew she had a story to tell and was waiting patiently to find out exactly what it was.  And when her story did come out, you see the unthinkable happen and you want nothing more than to hug her.  What I think also got me the most was Giovanni’s reaction to it all.  He is a bad man who has done many questionable and bad things in his life but to see the protectiveness he has when it comes to Emilia, to see him hurt for her in his own way is one of the many reasons why I loved him.   He is a complete alpha males who likes to dominate and be in control, but you know and see deep down what Emilia means to him and that is what makes him someone that you can love. 

This was another great dark mafia read by Ms. Knight.  I always look forward to her books and the emotions that she brings out, the bumpy ride that she puts me through.  It was the perfect mix of sexy and dark, and wonderfully written.

Cover Reveal: Not So Nice Guy by RS Grey




About NOT SO NICE GUY (available August 9th)

“Oh my god. Who is that?”
I get asked this question a lot.
“Oh him?” I reply. “That’s just Ian.”
Just Ian is the biggest understatement of the century. Just the Mona Lisa. Just the Taj Mahal. Just Ian, with his boring ol’ washboard abs and dime-a-dozen dimpled smile.
Just Ian is…just my best friend.
We’re extremely close, stuck so deep inside a Jim-and-Pam-style friendzone everyone at work assumes we’re a couple—that is until one day, word spreads through the teacher’s lounge that he’s single. Fair game. Suddenly, it’s open season on Ian.
He should be reveling in all the newfound attention, but to our mutual surprise, the only attention he seems to want is mine.
He’s turning our formerly innocent nightly chats into X-rated phone calls. Our playful banter sports a new, dangerous edge.
I want to assume he’s playing a prank on me, just pushing my buttons like always—but when Ian lifts me onto the desk in my classroom and slides his hands up my skirt, he doesn’t leave a lot of room for confusion.
I’m a little scared of things going south, of losing my best friend because I can’t keep my hands to myself. So, I’m just going to back away and not return this earth-shattering kiss—oh who am I kidding?!
Goodbye Ian, ol’ buddy, ol’ pal!
Helloooo mister not so nice guy.

The Other Side of Tomorrow by Micalea Smeltzer







Life can change in an instant…

For Willa Hansen, this statement couldn’t be truer. One minute she was a seemingly normal fourteen-year-old, and the next her life was turned upside down with only a few words. Three years later, she’s receiving a kidney transplant and can start living again, only now she’s not sure she knows how.

Life can end in a moment…

Jasper Werth knows this all too well, seeing as a drunk driver killed his little brother. He’s always been a carefree guy, never taking life too seriously, but losing his brother is a major blow, and he finds himself lost until Willa walks into his life.

Life can mend the most broken parts of our souls…

Willa and Jasper couldn’t be more opposite, but as fate brings them together they’ll learn maybe they’re not so different after all.

Sometimes what you need comes in a package you least expect.






4.5 stars
Review by Jen Skewes

This book was so much more than I expected it to be and that is a really good thing.  I instantly became a huge fan of Micalea's after reading her first book a while back.  I have loved every book since then.  She writes with so much emotion and creates the most amazing characters that will completely capture your heart.  The Other side of Tomorrow did include all of those things but there was something about this book that was just so special.  Maybe it was the strength of the two main characters or how real this story is.  I loved it. 

Willa is a 17 year old girl who is probably stronger than many adults.  At the age of fourteen she learned that her kidneys were failing her.  Going through years of dialysis hoping for the transplant she desperately needs. Throughout that time the amount of strength this young girl showed just blew me away.  From her diagnosis, to the words her doctor told her, to knowing how close she was to death and yet she fought through it and came out the other side feeling more alive. When she finally gets what she needs, she plans to live her life that is exactly what she wants to do.  She wants to feel alive again, live her life like a 17 year old girl should.  When she meets Jasper, together the two of them learn to move forward and live. 

Jasper just lost his younger brother and is in a world of hurt.  Meeting Willa has changed so much for him.  She gets him when he’s with her, he can open up to her in ways he can’t to everyone else around him.  Willa makes him want to live and learn to be happy again. 

The Other Side of Tomorrow is about love, loss and finding strength within ones’s self.  Yes it was a complete roller coaster ride of emotions and every part of this book just felt so real.  I felt their pain, their hurt, their loss. And also felt their happiness.  These two were destined to be together and you could feel it from the moment they met, even if it was only a short encounter.  Fate brought them together and once it did the story and love that blossomed was so beautiful to watch.  

I said this book was special and maybe it’s not just about the characters or the story.  I think it’s because you can feel that Micalea poured her heart and soul into this book. You could feel how much this story meant to her.  It was a beautiful story and will completely touch your heart in so many ways.  And know ng rhere is a piece of Micalea in Willa just made this book even more special.  Thank you for sharing Willa and Jasper’s story. I loved every minute of it.
