I wasn’t a rookie, but I made a mistake because I was selfish, impulsive, and headstrong.


I was also in love.

My desire for her overwhelmed me. Consumed me. Distracted me.

To protect her, I stood motionless as my partner pried her from the security of my arms. I watched as she fought his hold. I even listened when she screamed that she hated me.

For years I’ve been patient, I’ve been smart, and I’ve gone by the book. But now… it’s finally over.

It’s time to get my girl back.

When I show up to reclaim what’s mine, I discover she’s not ready to forgive me quite yet… but that’s okay, because I have no problem reminding her just how good it used to be, even if I have to show her over and over again.

What I do have a problem with is the guy who’s been trying to take my place. Because here’s the thing, I’ve waited too long to have her in my arms again to have anybody stand in my way… and I’m done following the rules.

Release Blitz: Constant by Rachel Higginson




Fifteen years ago I met Sayer Wesley. I fell in love with him. I promised I would never leave him. I swore nothing could break us apart.

Five years ago I broke my promise. I ran away. I took the one secret that could destroy us both and disappeared. 

Five days ago I thought I saw him. 

I knew it was impossible. Sayer was locked away, serving a deserved sentence in federal prison. He couldn’t find me. 

He wouldn’t find me. I was too good at hiding. Too good at surviving. 

Because if Sayer ever found me, there would be hell to pay for a plethora of sins. The worst of which, he didn’t even know about. 

Five hours ago, I told myself I was crazy. 

Five minutes ago, I saw him again. 

Five seconds ago, I was too late. 




Teaser
There were times in my life that I thought I wouldn’t survive. I stood at the precipice of death and peered over the edge. One misstep or ill-timed gust of wind and I would have tipped over, fallen down the black abyss and never resurfaced.
Sometimes when I looked back at those moments, those infinitely dark and twisted times, I couldn’t breathe. I would feel my heart shatter all over. I would experience the tearing, crushing, ripping apart of my limbs and muscles, my tendons and veins, my heart and my mind. I would forget how to breathe.
I would forget how to be.
Until I remembered him.
He was the one constant in my life that had pushed me through the darkness. He was the one constant in my life that loved me beyond everything else, beyond what I was or had been or could ever be. He wanted me to be better. He wanted to be better for me.
And yet he was as tangled in the madness as I was.
I didn’t have that life anymore. I had broken free and found something safe to build a foundation on. But I couldn’t remember the past without imagining his smile or his eyes, his touch. I couldn’t think about where I had been without thinking of where we were supposed to go.
Where he was supposed to take me.
Sometimes life doesn’t work out the way you plan. Sometimes circumstances change and sometimes they’re for the better.
But he was my constant then and he is the constant ghost that haunts me now.
I might not be with him.
But he will always be with me.




Cover Reveal: Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland

We are thrilled to bring you the next standalone novel from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Vi Keeland. SEX, NOT LOVE will release on January 15th, 2018








Model: Fabian Castro
Photographer: Rafael Catala
Cover designer: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative




My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.

It’s just sex, not love.

But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

Review by Jen Skewes

I loved this book.  But honestly I don’t think that there is a book by Leddy Harper that I did not love, and I have read them all.  I love her writing, the characters she creates and the emotions that she makes me feel.  Over the last few years since I started reading her books, she has made me laugh out loud, ugly cry like I have never ugly cried before, broke my heart a few times, caused my heart to jump out of my chest and left me completely happy with a huge smile on my face and a book hangover for days.  I don’t even bother reading the blurbs because I will read anything that she writes.  And trust me when I say she did not disappoint with this book.  It was the unique storyline, the amazing characters and the chemistry between them, and the way she made feel it all with them, that had me devouring this book in one sitting.  It was beautiful and perfect.

Cash is a divorced man who works a lot.  So much so that he is only home on weekends, but when he is home he is lonely.  He doesn’t want a girlfriend, and is not looking for love but he is looking for a companionship.  He puts an ad in the paper looking for a female roommate for companionship only, nothing more.

Jade is a single mom who is in desperate need of a job and a place to stay.  She has been staying with her best friend but things are a little too crowded. Four people in a one-bedroom apartment with one bathroom is a little too much.   She sees Cash’s ad and thinks it’s a little odd for a man to be looking specifically for a female roommate.  She decides to answer the ad even though she has no intention of being this man’s roommate.  When he gets in touch with her she is a little shocked and not really sure what to do.  They begin to communicate, and she finds herself actually liking him and despite her trust issues, Cash seems different.

Jade is looking for a fresh start for her and her daughter and while trusting Cash and actually taking him up on his offer sounds all wrong, for her it just feels right.  She may not be able to explain it but it just does.  So they get together and draw up their Roommate “dis” agreement.   They both knew the rules and they also thought they knew what to expect.  Oh they were so wrong, because this “dis” agreement completely turned their world upside down, making them feel things they did not want to feel. Will they both fight their feelings or accept the fact that they belong together and are so much more than just roommates?

I cannot say enough about Cash.  This man was everything!!  He was kind, sweet, a bit of an alpha, sexy, and had just a big heart, especially where Jade and her daughter Aria were concerned.  I loved how he took to Aria right away and the moments with her just melted my heart.  You cold see how much Jade was making him feel, and I loved it.  He needed them in a way that I think he never expected to.  I loved their connection and the chemistry between them was off the charts.  I think the moment they first spoke to each other you just knew that they were meant to be.  He was just perfect in so many ways. 

Jade is one of those heroines that you just love and admire.  I admired her for her strength and her perseverance to move on and do what was best for her and her daughter.  Her life was so far from perfect.  As a matter of fact the truth behind her past just broke me.  I felt so much sadness for her.  But Cash brought something out in her,  he gave her life, made her feel.  And she did the same for him.  She had a lot of trust issues and you see that as their relationship grows.  And over time that trust and their relationship is tested and you really wonder if they can survive it.

Leddy Harper has done a fantastic job with this story.  It is unique in its own way.  I loved the characters and the connection that you felt between them.  Aria will melt your heart.  That little girl had me from the start and I can say the same for Cash as well.  I loved the banter between them.   I loved everything about this book but I think it was the pace of the story, the issues they faced (even the small ones), the moments where trust was an issue, all those things made this book just feel so real.  Nothing ever seemed rush, or too over the top.  It was all real and you felt every bit of emotion that these characters felt.  A beautifully written story that left me thinking about it for days after.

4 stars
Review by Lisa Kane 

Who doesn’t love a second shot at romance story? Emma Jane Haywood was set to marry the love of her life-Knox Montgomery. They had been together since they were locker buddies in the tenth grade. So on her wedding day, right before she is about to walk down the aisle, something happens that affects her so badly she flees. She becomes the ugly crying runaway bride and ends up in a gay bar. She’s ready to drink herself into a stupor. But she’s not alone-oh no- NFL hottie Becket Jones, knows a damsel in distress when he sees one. Why is he in a gay bar? His brother is there with some of his friends and Becket fits right in to any situation. 

Becket gets to the bottom of Emma Jane’s debacle, and thus starts a beautiful friendship. She needs a good friend, since her father texted her letting her know she was fired from the magazine he control who employed her. And by the way…don’t bother coming home either.  

And it dawns on my why he’s calling me Blue.
In yet another act against my father’s dominating ways, I dyed a streak of my hair for my “something blue.”

Fast forward eight years later, and Emma Jane has a successful career at a magazine in Florida and she’s still best friends with Becket. Although according to the press, they are more than friends. When rumors fly that the magazine is in financial trouble and has been bought by a new owner, Emma Jane digs in her heels ready to prove to the new management that she not only is great at the job she has, but she deserves a promotion. Imagine her surprise when the new owner is none other than Knox Montgomery. 

“Are you suggesting you represent the company in the best light possible? By being the girlfriend of an NFL quarterback?”

Hmmm…seems Knox is more than a little bitter about Emma Jane literally leaving him at the altar. 

Of course, there’s the mystery of why Emma Jane fled her wedding to solve, and there might just be a few other shockers along the way. When two people loved each other as hard as these two did, does that love ever really go away? Time may have marched on, but both Knox and Emma Jane’s hearts were spoken for a long time ago. 
He Loves Me Knot is a sweet and sassy romance between two characters who are a little bit flawed, but a whole like likeable. They are framed by great secondary players-Becket is drool worthy and deserves his own HEA, Madison, Emma Jane’s bestie and Wells, Knox’s wise cracking loyal sidekick need their own stories too! There’s some easy readin’ with this Southern charmer! 

“Emma Jane Haywood, I’ve loved you from the moment our lockers were side by side in the tenth grade. And I never,” his throat works as he goes on, “gave my heart to anyone else.”

4 Stars
Review by Jen Skewes

I really enjoyed this book.  After reading the other books in this series I could not wait for Lilly’s story.  Hers is definitely a heart breaking one but also a beautiful love story about love, loss and second chances.

Lilly and Tyler were high school sweethearts who had their whole life planned out together.  They were married and Tyler was living his dream of being a pilot in the Air Force.   They were happy and in love until that moment that Lilly dreaded became her worst nightmare.  Tyler was killed in action, leaving Lilly completely shattered.  It has been 18 months since she lost the love of her life and has deciedd to move back home into her family’s cottage.  She knows that she needs to move on at some point in her life, but she is still not ready.  Tyler’s parents finally feel like the time is right to give Lilly the letters that her husband had written for her.  Reading those letters brings out so much heartache but at the same time leaves her even more confused and conflicted about moving on.  It’s when she reads the second letter that she is truly shocked by her husband’s words and is honestly not sure what to do with this news. 

In the meantime she meets Easton, a man with eyes that remind her of her deceased husband’s eyes.  She is attracted to Easton in a way that she does not expect.  A part of her wants to move on and get to know this man but the past, the guilt and the pain of losing her husband is holding her back.  But Easton is a very patient man and thank God for that.  He wants to know all of her, even if they start out as just friends.  He knows she is still grieving but he won’t give up.  He knows and feels that there is something between them and he will wait for her.  But will Lilly truly ever be able to move on and be with another man.  She has been given a second chance at love, will she take it?

Easton was the perfect man.  He was so patient and kind where Lilly was concerned.  He knew to take things slow and at her pace.  While he may not have experienced a loss like she has he understand her reasons for needing to take things slow.  He was so patient with her and at the same time had this sexy way about him.  The man liked to talk dirty and boy did he.  But when he wasn’t being sexy,  he had his corny moments that would just make you laugh.  He was the total package.

Lilly had my heart.  I can’t imagine ever going through what she has been through.  My heart broke for her many times.  She was trying so hard to move on.  She felt something for Easton and really wanted to be with him. But there are moments that just hit her like a ton of bricks, moments where she could not control her sadness or her emotions.  And those moments would make her second guess her decisions. 

I loved watching Lilly and Easton’s relationship grow.  I loved seeing the moments when they both felt what was really gong on between them.  Easton kew she was special but it’s the moments they spent together and when he realized his love for her.  They just had this special relstionship that I loved.  It was filled with love and understanding and passion. 

There is a moment in the book where Lilly has a secret that she needs to share with Easton.  She knows that when you finally does it can completely push him away.  I was waiting for that moment, hoping and praying that it would work out the way that it should.  From the moment she told him what she needed to say I swear I was holding my breath, not letting it go until the end.  It was from that moment where I really felt the emotions of this book and what was between Lily and Easton.  When I got to the epilogue I felt like I could breathe again. 


This is a beautifully written story of loss and love.  It is about finding love again, and even though you choose to move on, that one person who you loved and loss will always be a part of your life and heart.  It is ok to love someone else and find happiness.  I loved this story but just had one issue with it.   Easton was patient and he never pressured Lilly into anything or never tied to move too fast but at times I felt like it did, especially where the intimacy was concerned.  Now my issue is not that she moved on too quickly, because I do not think there is a timeline on grieving and moving on.  I just felt like at times they moved a little too quickly when it seemed that Lilly wanted the opposite.  This is probably just the way I saw things, and it was just a minor issue.  I really loved this story and how well it was written.  I loved the emotions that it brought out in me.  And the characters just captured me from the beginning.  I hope to see more of this series in the future.
