Review by Jen Skewes

This is Dominic Mancini’s story, the one that I have been waiting for. We have met Dom in the prior installments.  He’s the brooding, workaholic brother who is also a bit of a mystery when it comes to his love life.  Work has always been his number one priority and for that reason he has never really been in a relationship.  But that doesn’t mean he’s never been in love, even if he has yet to admit it.  

Dom and Valentina have a history that goes as far back as their teenage years.  You can say that these two were always meant to be together, but just when things seem to be going in the right direction, a decision is made, causing their life to take unexpected turns that changes what they have.  They have been on and off for years, with Dom stepping aside when it was necessary.  But their relationship was never serious, regardless of their feelings for each other.  But with their recent break up, they haven’t seen each other in months.  When they both happen to be in Vegas at the same time, Dom and Val do what they do best together.  They spend the night together, dancing around their feelings.  Everyone knows that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.  But what happens when you wake up and part of the night is a blur?  Only to remember that the woman in your bed is no longer your ex or your friend, but she is now your wife?  Oh, and the “what happens in Vegas” rule, is not happening when your brother who can’t keep a secret to save his life finds out who the mystery wife really is!!  But no big deal right?  They will just get an annulment, and all will be in the past. Wrong!!!  Add in two meddling Italian mothers and these two find themselves in a marriage that they now need to work on.  Will they both realize that they were meant to end up here, or will they continue to deny their feelings?

There is no denying the intense chemistry between Val and Dom.  But there is also no denying that these two love each other, no matter how hard they try to keep their feelings hidden.  Dom knows deep down how he feels about Val, but he doesn’t ever want to hurt her and still feels after all these years that he cannot give her what he wants. Work is and has always been his priority.  And this is where he became so frustrating.  Don’t get me wrong, Val was frustrating as well for her own reasons.  So together they had a tendency to make my head spin.  But Dom was stubborn and loved his job, but I also think he was scared, of getting hurt and hurting Val.  Their ability to hide their feelings, sweep them under the rug like they don’t exist, the back and forth, just drove me crazy.  But in a good way.  

Val on the other hand could never say no when it comes to Dom and there were times where I wanted her to say no.  I wanted her to not give in so easily.  I loved Dom but at times I wanted to smack some sense in him, I wanted him to see that while he tried so hard not to hurt Val, he was.  I liked him but it wasn’t until about 70% where I truly started to love him, because while he wore his heart on his sleeve he also guarded it. And for once you see the side of Dom that you have been waiting for.  You know that he is an amazing man and truly loves Val, but seeing it is what made all the difference.

This book was an emotional roller coaster and honestly draining…lol. The back and forth between Val and Dom, learning of their past and what happened between them, and the ups and downs just tore at your heart.  Everyone knew that they were meant to be together. You felt the love and passion between the two of them, but waiting for them to see it, well that was the emotional part of this book.  It was sweet, sexy, had the right amount of drama and angst.  A second chance romance that I absolutely loved!!!  And a writing duo who know how to suck you in.  Another fantastic read from Piper Rayne.

Cover Reveal: Beaten Paths by Stephie Walls

Release Date: September 16, 2019

Cover Design: Vanilla Lily


One stone creates a ripple with the power to change destiny.

One horrific mistake…

After a near-fatal accident, Sarah Adams was left hospitalized and faced months of grueling surgery and rehab—alone.

One chance encounter…

Charlie Burin walked in when the rest of the world walked out. He refused to let her quit, vowing to hold her up until she could stand on her own.

One unexpected twist…

When a new obstacle arises, can two people who have been through hell keep fighting for love when the odds are stacked against them?



Charlie had remained relatively quiet for the last two days. We both knew nothing would ever be the same, yet we weren’t talking about it. Neither of us admitted it out loud. Now, walking into Dr. Nesbit’s surgery center, the wound had festered until puss poured from it. It was infected, and it had the power to kill us. I kept trying to tell myself that this would all start to go away once we got through today, but it was a lie. Nothing would ever right this decision. The wrong could never be undone.
He had held my hand as we made through the parking lot. It was still dark out, and dew glistened on the flowers near the door. I’d managed to get the first appointment of the day, and while this wasn’t an abortion clinic, I was worried that everyone would know why we were here. My shame was amplified by the cover of night, and the drops of water on the grass only reminded me of things that were made anew…every day. If only I had faith the size of a mustard seed… I sighed and cast my gaze toward the ground, unable to take in any of the beauty God put before me. It was a painful reminder that I didn’t trust Him. That I believed he’d made a mistake, and that I, as a human, had the power to undo what He set forth. And since I was too weak to acknowledge His power, I refused to acknowledge His grace or His mercy.
Each step Charlie and I took forward was another in the path of selfishness. This was more than just guilt. There was conviction, and I was forcing it out. I’d been chosen as these children’s mother, and yet, here I stood, telling the Almighty He’d made a mistake.
My heart pounded beneath my sternum as we stepped up to the desk. I couldn’t hear anything Charlie said to the girl I’d never met. Megan wasn’t on this side of the facility, although I was grateful she wasn’t here to witness my weakness despite the fact that I barely knew the girl.
He took the clipboard and pen while still holding my hand. Then he took me to a seat in the waiting room to complete the liability and financial forms. Mindlessly, I’d signed my name to the first, and I nearly gagged at the last. I really should have dealt with the insurance issue before we’d come here, but I couldn’t bring myself to handle any more reality than I currently had on my plate.
My hands shook as did Charlie’s when I handed him the forms to sign after me. He could pretend all he wanted that he was strong, but the quiver in his signature said otherwise. The question became, were either of us strong enough to turn around and not do this. Could I face the possibility of losing it all to protect my children?
“Mrs. Burin?” A woman in scrubs stood at the open door to what I assumed was the surgical area.
Charlie stood and took the clipboard to the desk. He reappeared in front of me—where I still sat rooted in my chair—and held out his hand. I glanced at the lady who waited and then up at my husband whose eyes were the darked brown I’d ever seen them. They were laced with sorrow and remorse—and the deepest pain I’d ever seen in another person’s eyes.
I couldn’t do this.
I had to do this.
I took his hand and closed my eyes. And there in the waiting room, I prayed that God would give me the strength to pull off what I was about to do. I had to cleanse the wound that had grown between us, and it wasn’t going to be easy.
They weren’t born, but they were mine. And if I went through with this, I’d be no better than my own mother who’d left us for her own selfish reasons without ever looking back. But I’d be damned if I could live with that decision. I doubted I would make it through this pregnancy unscathed and maybe not even alive. But at the end of the day, regardless of what happened, I wanted my husband to be able to look our children in the eyes and tell them I had loved them enough to die for them. Because that’s what mothers do—they chose their children over themselves.

A Standalone Contemporary Romance

New York Times Bestselling Authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland


It started out like any normal day.

Then the fender bender happened.

The guy I collided with drove an expensive car and was drop-dead gorgeous. Too bad he was also a total jerk. We argued over whose fault it was and any other thing that came out of his condescending mouth.
Eventually, the police came and we went our separate ways. The insurance companies would have to figure things out. I had a job interview to get to anyway—one I was excited about.

Though that excitement changed to disappointment the moment the person interviewing me walked in. The guy from the accident.


Yeah, so I didn’t get the position.

The problem was, I really wanted it. No, I needed it. Anything to get me out of my current career and back into working with kids.

So, even though Hollis LaCroix was as intimidating as he was devastatingly handsome, I went back to see him and begged for a chance.

To my surprise, he gave me a shot taking care of his troubled niece.

At least my attraction to him wouldn’t be able to go anywhere. I wasn’t about to jeopardize my job or the strong bond Hailey and I formed.

But resisting the magnetic pull between us wasn’t that simple. (Then there was our little underwear game—don’t ask.)

We continued to flirt without crossing the line—until it finally happened.

This is the part of the story where we fall in love and live happily ever after, right?

Well, life has a way of throwing some major curveballs.

Ours was one I didn’t see coming.
