Blurb:

Briggs,



Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart. What you didn't know was that I was breaking mine too.



I thought they’d be enough–my husband and my son. That I’d get home and everything would go back to the way it was . . .



Before the war.

Before the ambush.

Before you.



But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.



The truth is I’m lost without you.



I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground, but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.

I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .



All my love,

Scottie

Review by Jen Skewes


I have read all of Kate Stewart's book and loved them. With each new book I find my new favorite of hers.  But this book, wow!!  She completely blew me away.  This is by far her best book.  I have never rad Heather M. Orgeron's work before but that is going to change.  This author duet completely broke me over and over again.  With each page, a little piece of my heart broke off, leaving it completely decimated.  I swear I had a lump in my throat the entire time.  It wasn't until the end , when they managed to piece my heart back together did that I was able to breathe again.

I guess you can say that this book is love triangle, and many who have read it will agree.  But for me it was so much more.  The triangle part of this book honestly came second to what these characters experience, the pain they endure, the struggles that they must overcome and the heartbreaking decisions that must be made.  As the book opens up Scottie is saying goodbye to her husband and son as she is being deployed.  It is there that she meets Sergeant Briggs, who is a little cocky, a lot sexy, but someone that you can count on when necessary. The two of them go through something that is unimaginable, horrific, and fearful.  But it forms this bond between the two of them, one that no one may even understand, but it is there.

Scottie loves her husband and son with all that she has.  And they have always been enough for her.  But now she must face so many obstacles.  She is a broken woman, a shell of the woman who left ll those months ago.  she needs to fight the demons, not just for herself but for her family.  But despite living her family, Briggs is never far from her mind.  Will her family be enough to get her through this?   

I cannot begin to express how much I loved this book and what it did to me.  Yes there were times where I smiled and laughed, but those moments were few compared to the moments that broke me.  This book didn't just tug on my heartstrings, it yanked on them.  And please do not let that scare you.  Every ounce of pain and sadness that I felt was 100% worth it.  The writing is flawless, the story itself brilliant, and these two authors made me feel it ALL.  The prologue alone sucked me in.  I never wanted to put this book down. I was submerged in Scottie, Briggs and Gavin's world and didn't want to leave.  With every word and every page this book has my emotions all over the place.  The heartbreak alone was enough, but add to that the fact that I wondered where this book would go, how it would all end and you have an amazing story.  It is a beautiful love story but also one about love, friendship, pain and strength.  It's about losing yourself and being able to find yourself again.  It deals with very heavy topic and was dealt with in a very special and delicate way.  I didn't give too much info on the plot or the characters, because this book you just need to experience on your own.  Go in blind.  Once you start you will not want to let go.  With that being said I will say that I loved both Gavin and Briggs.  But one of those men had my heart from the very beginning and he never let it go!! 

Kate Stewart and Heather M Orgeron, I applaud you for writing this book and I thank you.  It is one of my top reads this year.  It is that book that will stay with you always.  Amazing, amazing job!!!

Review by Jen Skewes

I could not wait to read the conclusion to Taken.  Especially after the way we were left hanging.  I was not sure what would happen, but after reading Torn I can say that it was nothing that I expected.  This book went in a direction that I never saw coming.  But I loved it. 

When Taken ended, we see that Lucinda had taken Helena.  Torn starts off exactly where we left off.  Helena realizes that Lucinda lied to her and now she is at her and Ethan's mercy.  She has not idea where she is, or if Sebastian is even looking for her.  And what is done to her while she is being held captive is beyond words.  My God the ,aunt of pain and suffering and hurt that this girl endured, not just at the hands of Lucinda but in general.  Sebastian dos save her and from that moment you are not sure how this story will end.  There are rules that are not meant to be broken.   Helena is falling for the man that she should hate but Sebastian seems to be falling as well.  He has no intention of going her up after year, especially to his brothers.  He has a plan and as long as he sticks to it, all will be fine.  Right?  That plan will end up hurting someone and there may be no fixing what has been broken.  What will happen?  You will have to read the book to find out.  

I really loved this series.  I loved Sebastian even when I should have hated him.  But I saw that deep down he felt something for Helena.  He wan't the bad guy and what they shared as something that was deep and felt by the both of them.  Helena is one tough chick.  I would never have survived, but she took it all and swore she would never let them break her.  

Gregory plays a significant role in this book and I am not sure if I love him or hate him.   Oh who am I kidding, there is something about him that makes you love him.  And I really hope we get to see more of him.  Torn was filled with angst, suspense, and it was hot.  Ms. Knight definitely turned the heat up a notch in this one.   A perfect conclusion to this duet.  I hope that this is not the last act we see of these characters.

Release Blitz: Sin Bin by Mandi Beck

Title: Sin Bin
Author: Mandi Beck
Genre: Romance
Release Date: November 11, 2018


**Previously included in the Team Player Anthology, released now with added content and an extended epilogue!

They say age doesn’t matter. I could argue that it does. The ten years separating Stella Cruz and I matter a whole hell of a lot.

She has a year of college left—two entire semesters to enjoy being the star pitcher of Fulton University—and I have another Cup to win. Hockey leaves no room for anything else, not even someone as incredible as Stella. So, I left her in my bed. Out of sight, out of … sight. Because I damn sure can’t get her out of my mind. 

Everyone says time heals all wounds. That’s a lie. Six months ago, Jason Dagger left me in Boston after one of the best weekends of my life. Shut me down when I tried to reach out. He didn’t call, didn’t text, didn’t even wave at the camera when it panned over to him during one of his hockey games. Nothing … until he shows up at my job one night demanding and sexy.

Jason’s back and he’s not making anything easy for me. I don’t know if I’m happy or mad about it.

Review by Jen Skewes

I have read and love every one of Mandi Beck's books.  Sop I wan ex iced to read Sin Bin, especially tally because it about a hockey player, my favorite sports romance.  Sin bin is a quick, hot and sexy read that put a smile on my face.  

Jason is a hockey player in the NHL.  He panda a weekend at his old college to help mento their next up and. coming hockey star.  When he sees Stella Cruz for the first time he wants her.  He knows she is still in college and 10 years younger than her, but one night won't hurt.  

Stella is a young softball star who has worked hard to get where she is.  She has not let love or sex get in the way of her dreams and what she has been working so hard for.  When she sees Jason Dagger, she has no idea who he is and she doesn't honestly care.  He is hot and sexy and when he approaches her she knows that her night will be spent with him.  They spend a passionate weekend again and when it is all over Jason goes back to Chicago without a word.  When he is back his his home town six months later, he hopes to see Stella again but knows that she probably hates him.  When he sees her though he gets more than just an attitude from her.  

I loved the two of the together.  Jason is a a but of a player but he's also an NHL star who doesn't really want to settle down.  He is cocky, arrogant and sexy but he also has a sweet side and loves his family.  You can see how important family is to him.  I really loved Stella, and ho independent he was.  She definitely didn't take to Jason Dagger like all the other girls do.  I rally enjoyed this book.  It was a little short and I knew going in that it was novella, but loving this story and the characters I would love more.  I cannot wait for Levi's book.  










Kim (Goodreads Review): “Once again, Mandi Beck brought her A Game.”

Diary of a Book Fiend: “Cute Novella that packs a lot of steam. The chemistry is off the charts between Stella and Jason.”


Words We Love By Blog: “The attraction between Jason and Stella was palpable and felt immediately!”




Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.

A wife, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met even though her favorite hockey player calls her…mom.

Cover Reveal: Across the Horizon b Aly Martinez












“Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair.

I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouth-watering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike.

Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine—or six.

Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it...

So does heartbreak.

Relese Blitz: Hope About No by Lani Lynn Vale


Wade had everything he could ever want in life...then he lost it.

Now, his life—his forever girl—is living in a house he built for her while he’s struggling to move on and find meaning where there isn’t any to be found.

Landry Hill was his girl. his everything. His high school sweetheart. His first kiss. His first and only love. His old lady and wife

Then one day he does something monumentally stupid. And she walks away knowing she’ll never come back.

Fast forward five years, and he’s still just as in love with her now as he was when she left. The only problem is that she’s moved on with her life, found a new man, and seemingly forgotten him. Then there’s Wade—stuck in the same awful place where she abandoned him. The only thing he has left is his job as a police office and the Bear Bottom MC.

Just when they both think things can’t get any worse, life kicks them both in the teeth, and Landry finds out really quick that the only person she can depend on is the one that let her walk away.

With understanding comes a deal. One that Landry has no hope of ever breaking free from, and one Wade will do everything in his power to make a reality.

But one thing is still certain. The force that split them apart is still out there. And there’s no hope of escaping fate.

Review by Lisa Kane

Wade Johnson has the Bear Bottom Guardians MC and his job as a cop. What he doesn't have? His wife, not ex-wife, Landry Marine. It's been two years since he messed up and Landry divorced him. Two years of regret and living his life alone. Meanwhile, Landry seems to have moved on and has a new man in her life.

Landry's life isn't exactly what Wade seems to think it is, but she's not about to set him straight. She had a brutal childhood and while she thought she had found someone who loved her for herself she found out that he too would put someone else before her wishes. She spent her whole life yearning for the time when she could live the life she wanted, making her own choices for that life. Then the love of her life, Wade, made her feel insignificant again.

I'd been two years since our divorce had been finalized, and each month-hell, each day-had been an exercise in control. 
I missed my best friend. 

When Wade is shot and hurt, Landry doesn't hesitate to reach his side. He may be her ex, but he's still her love.

I was not living my life for anyone else anymore. 
At least, that'd been what I thought up until I'd heard that Wade was shot. 

Wade would do anything to get Landry back and although he's heard some things he believed were wrong, he still has no idea how to get back the life they once had. Seeing Landry at his side when he wakes up in the hospital, makes him realize a few things.

A person who's moved on doesn't get that upset over her ex-husband being hurt. 
It just didn't happen. 

Wade isn't about to look this gift horse in the mouth.

Landry finds herself getting sucked in more and more into a relationship with Wade once again. He's hurt and she wants to help him. He wants her back and makes no secret about it.

What I wanted was for her to be back in my bed. What I wanted was for my life to be what it was before she'd left. 
What I got wasn't that. 
But I was working on it.

Both Wade and Landry are in for a little (maybe big!) surprise. Is Wade about to get what he most wants? Is Landry ready to forgive him?

Wade's actions in the past cut Landry to her knees. She spent a lifetime of neglect and being used and he brought her right back to that place. But how much responsibility does Landry bear for their divorce?

"I think you wait for me to treat you like your parents treat you," he rumbled quietly. "And honey, I'm not your parents." 

When two people love each other as much as Wade and Landry do, that leaves them both wide open to expose themselves to hurt. Can they learn from their mistakes and find their way back to each other?

"I was always going to fight for you. I was always going to make sure that you had what you wanted. What you needed. And baby, what you need is me."

“No, Wade,” I snarled. “It’s not just that easy.”
He frowned. “What are you talking about? I realize that it’s tough, and it’s going to hurt, but baby, this is your sister! Your sister is your family. Your blood. You can’t just leave her in need.”
That was when I felt everything inside of me still.
“The first time I donated bone marrow to my sister, I was a toddler. Barely the age of two and a half,” I said, almost in a whisper. “The second time, I was four. The third? Seven. Do you see a pattern, Sergeant?
Wade frowned and tilted his head to the side, confusion spreading over his face.
“My parents had me to be their donor baby,” I whispered. “They never wanted me. I was never allowed to be a child. I was a useful object to them.”
Wade looked startled. “What do you mean by not being able to be a child?”
I laughed maniacally.
“I’m saying that I was bred to be their baby’s saving grace,” I hissed. “And I’m not doing it anymore. My sister is an asshole. My father’s a conniving bastard, and my mother is the biggest bitch known to man. Don’t you think that there’s a reason that I’ve never spoken of them?”
He looked at me like I was crazy. “Honey, you told me that you had a falling out. But this is your sister.”
I looked over at where my sister was sitting out on the front porch, silently crying her big, fat crocodile tears.
She’d always been good at them.
There was a time when I was younger that all she had to do was get that look on her face, and I’d be scared shitless.
Because if Lina wasn’t happy, nobody was happy, least of all me.
There was always going to be hell to pay if a single tear fell down Lina’s perfect cheek.
Lina also looked like a little China doll. She had perfect blonde curls, soft, milky white skin, blue eyes the color of a crayon, and she was tiny.
I, on the other hand, was none of those things but short.
I had brown hair to her blonde, brown eyes to her blue, freckled skin to her perfect complexion, and when I tried hard, I was also skinny.
Except, lately, I had been drinking beer and having the time of my life—living it like I’d always wanted to live it.
“I won’t do it,” I refused again, sounding petulant now.
I knew he didn’t understand.
Deep down, Wade was a really good man.
He’d experienced a lot in his life. He was a cop and had seen some very bad things.
But, what he did not have, was a bad family.
His family was awesome. His mom was the best mother in the whole world, and his dad was the kind of father I’d only ever dreamed of having when I was younger.
God, even his brother was the best.
He had no clue what it was like to hate your family like I did.
Hell, the only reason he hadn’t heard of them sooner was because my sister hadn’t gotten sick enough to need me.
Had she, Wade would’ve learned the truth about who my family was a hell of a lot quicker.
“I’m going to tell her that you’re thinking about it, and we can discuss it more later, okay?” Wade offered. “I don’t want you to make any hasty decisions because you’re overreacting.”
