Checkmate: This is War (Travis & Viola, #1)
(Checkmate Duet #1)
by Kennedy Fox




*An enemies to lovers romance*


Travis King is the worst kind of asshole.
He taunts me for being a good girl and mocks my high standards. 
He’s cruel, crass, and has enough confidence to last two lifetimes. 
And I hate him.



It wouldn’t matter so much if he were avoidable. 


But considering he’s my older brother’s best friend and roommate, I see him more than I’d ever want to.


His sculpted abs and gorgeous eyes are a waste on such an egotistical man, which makes me hate him even more.


Even though I’ve had a crush on him since I was ten, the feelings weren’t mutual and he’s always made that very clear.


He’s always loved getting under my skin and one night against my better judgment, I let him in my bed. 


I’ve succumbed to his manwhore ways, but that doesn’t change a thing.


Because the King is about to get played at his own game—and lose.


Checkmate.




I started this series at the recommendation of a friend but little did I know I would be hooked instantly! I also didn't think that I would binge read every single book in the series, but I did, I totally did! I always love a good enemies to lovers story because I love all of the torment and angst that consumes the characters. So I was only too happy to have that angst come my way with Viola and Travis!

Viola and Travis are both completely misjudged by one another. Viola thinks Travis is the disgusting player who can't keep it in his pants, and he sort of is but he's also so much more than that! He's hard working, and thoughtful, and can be a real sweetheart when he cares for someone. Travis thinks Viola is a frigid book nerd, which she sort of is, at least the booknerd part. Yes she loves Harry Potter and studies her butt off, she also cares about those around her. 

From the beginning it was torture because I wanted them together but I also wanted them at war because it was so fun to read! I loved seeing Travis breaking down Viola's walls that have been in place for so long. And those walls needed to come down because the chemistry between them is so real! I felt it down to my toes, guys! I can definitely say there were times when I wanted to scream at Viola and tell her to just listen, but I couldn't fault her because she's a fellow book nerd and I related to her so much. 

Through all of the angst and arguments, this couple had me feeling all tingly inside too! The hate sex they had was...AWESOME! And the love sex they had...sublime. And lets just say the ending killed me, but luckily I had already purchased the second book and you should do the same, trust me.

Wicked Dance by Olivia Boothe


Live October 27, 2017!

Goodreads link to come...


She never imagined her heart could ever dance again...

Former dance student Sara Hart had aspired to grace the stage on Broadway, but a reckless decision forced her to renounce that dream. Years later, while struggling with an ungratifying job and an even more unsatisfying love life, she literally stumbles upon a dangerously sexy stranger who sends her heart—and her body—into hyperdrive. His touch makes her feel alive again and sparks a desire to rebuild her dance career. But Sara is still haunted by the demons of her past. One dark lie could cost her everything.

Real estate mogul Tom Wright caters to the rich and famous. He lives the life of the perfect bachelor, partying hard and dating the most beautiful women in Manhattan. But he has one golden rule—no commitments. Ever. Then he meets sexy Sara Hart, and something about her makes him want to throw the damn rule book out the window. Every time she’s near, the blood in his veins pulses with a raging fire he can’t contain. But Tom’s shadowed history is resurfacing, unearthing ghosts he’d rather remain buried.

Will this wicked dance be their last?


She never imagined her heart
could ever dance again...


“This night is so beautiful, Tom.”
“Yes, it is, but it doesn’t compare to you.” He 
nuzzled my ear as he spoke, his breath raising the hairs on the back of my neck.
Come on. Does he really have to say things like 
that? He must know it sounds so cheesy.
“You must say that to all the girls,” I teased.
“All the time,” he said, taking a tiny nip of my 
lobe.
Shivers ran down my spine, making me tremble. 
Looking at me with his playful eyes, he took off his 
blazer and draped it over my shoulders. I smiled. 
Shamefully and against my better judgment, I’d fallen for his cheesiness.
“This is the second time you’ve given me one of 
your jackets,” I said.
“I guess I like the way you look in my things.”
“Is that so?”
“Yes.”
His strong fingers grabbed me by the lapels of his 
blazer, bringing me closer. I gazed up only to find 
myself bound by his olive eyes. My arms were trapped under his jacket, rendering me motionless. He’d snared me. “What would you do if I kissed you?” he asked in a whisper.
“Why don’t you find out?”

DUKE OF DESIRE by Elizabeth Hoyt





DUKE OF DESIRE by Elizabeth Hoyt 
(October 17, 2017; Grand Central Publishing Mass Market; The Maiden Lane Series #12)




A LADY OF LIGHT

Refined, kind, and intelligent, Lady Iris Jordan finds herself the unlikely target of a diabolical kidnapping.  Her captors are the notoriously evil Lords of Chaos.  When one of the masked-and-nude!-Lords spirits her away to his carriage, she shoots him…only to find she may have been a trifle hasty. 

A DUKE IN DEEPEST DARKNESS

Cynical, scarred, and brooding, Raphael de Chartres, the Duke of Dyemore, has made it his personal mission to infiltrate the Lords of Chaos and destroy them.  Rescuing Lady Jordan was never in his plans.  But now with the Lords out to kill them both, he has but one choice: marry the lady in order to keep her safe.

CAUGHT IN A WEB OF DANGER…AND DESIRE

Much to Raphael’s irritation, Iris insists on being the sort of duchess who involes herself in his life—and bed.  Soon he’s drawn to both to her quick wit and her fiery passion.  But when Iris discovers that Raphael’s past may be even more dangerous than the present, she falters.  Is their love strong enough to withstand not only the Lords of Chaos but also Raphael’s own demons?





Iris tasted of red wine—the red wine she must have drunk at dinner—and all the reasons he shouldn’t do this fled his mind. A vital chain broke in his psyche and everything he’d held back, everything he’d restrained with all his might, was suddenly set free. He surged into her mouth, desperate for the feel, for the taste of her, his wife, his duchess, his Iris. She was soft and sweet and warm and he wanted to devour her. To seize her and hold her and never let her go. The deep unfathomable well of his urges toward her frightened him, and he knew that if she became aware of them, they would frighten her as well.

But that was the thing—she wasn’t aware of them. She thought she was simply consummating their marriage or some such rot, God help them both.

She gripped his naked arms and the beast within him shuddered and stretched, claws scraping against the ground.

Dear God, he wanted this woman.

But he had to remember—to keep that human part of his mind awake and alive—that he mustn’t seed her.

Must never do as his cursed father had done.

He broke from her mouth, feeling the pulse of his cock against his breeches, and trailed his lips across her cheek to her ear. “Come with me, sweet girl.”

She blinked up at him, wide blue-gray eyes a little dazed.

He covered her mouth again before she could speak—either to consent or decline—and drew her slowly backward, step by step, toward the bed, until he hit it with the backs of his legs. He broke the kiss, looking down at her, her wet ruby lips parted, her cheeks flushed pink.

She looked edible.

“Raphael,” she whispered, his name on her lips like a plea, and something within him broke.
This wasn’t what he wanted. This wasn’t right. But it was the only thing possible and it would have to suffice because it was all he could do.

And trying to resist was killing him.

He traced a hand up her arm, over her shoulder, to her neck, and from there touched her bound golden hair. “Will you take down your hair for me?”

She gasped—a small, quick inhalation—and nodded.

He watched as she raised her arms, her stormy eyes locked on his, and withdrew the pins from her hair one by one until the heavy mass fell like a curtain around her shoulders. He bent then and gathered the locks in his hands, burying his face in her neck, inhaling her.

His woman.

He felt her tremble against him and then her fingers speared through his hair. “Raphael.”

He lifted his head.

Her hands fell away and she began undressing, her head bent down as she unhooked her bodice. He saw that her fingers fumbled and he knew that a better man would turn aside. Would give her privacy to collect herself and disrobe with modesty.

But he wasn’t such a man. He wanted all of her—her mistakes and her private moments, her shame and her worries—everything she held back from the rest of the world. As he wanted this. This moment of fumbling.

This moment of intimacy.

She pulled the bodice from her arms. Untied her skirts and let them pool around her feet before kicking them aside. Glanced up at him and then worked at the laces to her stays.

Her unbound hair fell over her shoulders, nearly to her waist, thick and swaying gently as she moved.
Beautiful.

She was beautiful.

She pulled her loosened stays off over her head and stood in chemise, stockings, and shoes. The tips of her breasts peeked out from beneath the thin cloth.

She began to bend for her shoes, but he stopped her. “No. Let me.”

He grasped her by the waist and lifted her to the bed.

Carefully he drew off her slippers, letting them drop to the hardwood floor before running his hand up her left calf. The room was so quiet he could hear each breath she drew. She watched him as he reached under her chemise, into that warm spot behind her knee, tugging at the ribbon of her garter.
Her breath hitched.

He glanced up at her as he found bare skin. Hot, so hot under her skirt. He could almost imagine he smelled her, standing between her bent legs. He pulled the first stocking off and moved to her other foot, smoothing his thumb over her arch, over that high instep, that sweet, delicate ankle. The curve of her calf—one of the loveliest curves in nature—elegant and perfect. Someday he’d like to draw her nude.

The faint, almost inaudible whisper as he pulled the ribbon off raised the hairs on the back of his neck. His nostrils flared and he couldn’t wait any longer. He lifted her bodily, moving her farther up on the bed, placing her head and shoulders against the pillows, and then pushed up her chemise, crawling between her spread thighs and settling to enjoy what he’d found.

There. There she was, her pretty, pretty pink cunny, all coral lips and wispy dark-blond curls. He hiked her trembling legs over his arms, ignoring her gasp of shocked surprise. He glanced up once and saw wide, wondering eyes gazing back at him. Her gentlemanly first husband had evidently never done this to her.

More fool he.

A Poison Dark and Drowning (Kingdom on Fire #2)
by Jessica Cluess


Hardcover432 pages
Expected publication: September 19th 2017 by Random House Books for Young Readers
ISBN: 0553535943




The magicians want her to lead.
The sorcerers want her to lie.
The demons want her blood.
Henrietta wants to save the one she loves.
But will his dark magic be her undoing?

In this seductive and explosive second book in the Kingdom on Fire series, Jessica Cluess delivers her signature mix of magic, passion, and teen warriors fighting for survival. Hand to fans of Victoria Aveyard, Sarah J. Maas, and Kiersten White.

Henrietta doesn't need a prophecy to know that she's in danger. She came to London to be named the chosen one, the first female sorcerer in centuries, the one who would defeat the Ancients. Instead, she discovered a city ruled by secrets. And the biggest secret of all: Henrietta is not the chosen one.

Still, she must play the role in order to keep herself and Rook, her best friend and childhood love, safe. But can she truly save him? The poison in Rook's system is transforming him into something monstrous as he begins to master dark powers of his own. So when Henrietta finds a clue to the Ancients past that could turn the tide of the war, she persuades Blackwood, the mysterious Earl of Sorrow-Fell, to travel up the coast to seek out strange new weapons. And Magnus, the brave, reckless flirt who wants to win back her favor, is assigned to their mission. Together, they will face monsters, meet powerful new allies, and uncover the most devastating weapon of all: the truth.






Okay, I will admit that I was a little nervous to start this book. I was nervous because I had a lot of feelings from the last book, mainly regarding Blackwood, and I was not sure how it was going to play out in this book. However, as soon as I started this book, I knew this was going to be a good one. The author did a great job at keeping my attention throughout the entire book. I thought the plot was really addictive and interesting. I couldn't stop reading it! There were some predictable storylines, but I thought it was great overall. THIS WAS SUCH A PLEASANT SURPRISE FOR ME. I REALLY FREAKING ENJOYED THIS BOOK.

One thing I felt like I was missing from the first book was action and tons of magic. I felt like the first book focused a lot on practicing magic, which was really interesting, but I was dying for more. This book DELIVERED on that aspect. I loved how the magic element was still present and important, but there was more action to keep the book moving. The author really increased the stakes in this book and I felt a sense of dread for the characters. I WAS ALWAYS SO WORRIED ABOUT THEM. I FELT LIKE THEY COULD HAVE DIED AT ANY MOMENT AND I WAS NOT EMOTIONALLY PREPARED FOR THAT.




Henrietta was a badass in this book, which made my heart so happy. I was so proud of her whenever she used her powers and kicked the butts of the villains. I loved her curiosity and her desire to protect those around her. She has a huge heart and it really tugged at my heartstrings when she was worried about the people she cared about. I will say that I thought she made a few dumb decisions and was a little slow to catch onto some obvious things. Actually, a lot of the characters were kind of dumb in this book. I felt like some of the answers to the mysteries in this book were so obvious, and it pained me that the characters couldn't see the obvious answers. However, I still really love the characters. Especially my baby, Blackwood. BLACKWOOD IS LIKE MR. DARCY SO YOU CAN'T EXPECT ME NOT TO LOVE HIM. IT IS SERIOUSLY IMPOSSIBLE. I WILL MARRY BLACKWOOD ANYTIME, ANY DAY. 




The romance in this book got me HEATED. There were multiple love interests in this book for Henrietta in this book, and I was not for two of them. I have had my ship since book one AND I AM GOING DOWN WITH THIS SHIP. Magnus was a funny and charming character, but I never felt the romantic connection between him and Henrietta. I was glad that Henrietta addressed their romance early in the book. The romance between Rook and Henrietta annoyed me. I am a huge supporter of friends to lovers tropes, but Rook just never pulled me in as a character. I just really don't want them together because I feel like they are better off as just friends. I guess that makes it obvious that I ship Henrietta and Blackwood, AND I DO NOT REGRET IT. THEY ARE MEANT TO BE TOGETHER. THE OTHER MEN NEED TO LEAVE THE PICTURE BECAUSE MY SHIP IS ENDGAME.

Overall, this was a really fun and mesmerizing book! I CANNOT wait to see what happens in book three. BRING IT ON!!!

The Victoria in My Head
by Janelle Milanes


Hardcover400 pages
Expected publication: September 19th 2017 by Simon Pulse
ISBN: 1481480898




Victoria Cruz inhabits two worlds: In one, she is a rock star, thrashing the stage with her husky voice and purple-streaked hair. In the other, currently serving as her reality, Victoria is a shy teenager with overprotective Cuban parents, who sleepwalks through her life at the prestigious Evanston Academy. Unable to overcome the whole paralyzing-stage-fright thing, Victoria settles for living inside her fantasies, where nothing can go wrong and everything is set to her expertly crafted music playlists.

But after a chance encounter with an unattainably gorgeous boy named Strand, whose band seeks a lead singer, Victoria is tempted to turn her fevered daydreams into reality. To do that, she must confront her insecurities and break away from the treadmill that is her life. Suddenly, Victoria is faced with the choice of staying on the path she’s always known and straying off-course to find love, adventure, and danger.

From debut author Janelle Milanes comes a hilarious and heartfelt tale of the spectacular things that can happen when you go after what you really want.







The Victoria in My Head was a relatable, funny, and heartwarming story about discovering yourself. I liked how this book felt authentic and so incredibly real. It took me back to my high school days and how it felt to go through all the big "firsts" in my life. The teenage angst involving boys, family, and self-worth all reminded me of what it was like to be a teenager. 

The main character, Victoria, was such a realistic character. She wanted more with her life and wanted to discover herself. Victoria was getting bored and knew there was more out there for her. She has was getting pressure from her parents to get into a good college, which I am sure a lot of teenagers can relate to. There were times when Victoria seemed a little immature and too dramatic, but it felt accurate for her age and what she was going through. 

The music element of this book was SO MUCH FUN. I loved the scenes when the band was rocking out and having fun. Watching Victoria become more confident and sure of herself through music really warmed my heart. I also enjoyed all the scenes when Victoria interacted with all the band members. They had such great banter and chemistry that made me laugh out loud. I liked how the author made sure to include how important friendships are. 

Overall, The Victoria in My Head was a charming and fun book that took me back to my teenage years. I am so excited to see what this author comes out with next!

Breaching the Contract (Conflict of Interest #1)
by Chantal Fernando




Katerina Dawson knows exactly what she wants from life. And as the new associate at the top law firm in the city, she’s ready to live out her dreams of becoming a criminal lawyer. But going on coffee runs and babysitting kids during the day was definitely not what she had in mind. She knows that anyone else would kill to be in her shoes, but she has to draw the line somewhere. That’s easier said than done, though, when Kat has to confront her handsome boss…


Tristan Channing and Jaxon Bentley run a successful law firm together and the two partners couldn’t be busier right now. When Jaxon suddenly takes a leave of absence, Tristan begrudgingly assumes responsibility of the new associate, the hot new associate, who has curves for days. Needing to keep his distance from her, Tristan sends Kat on needless errands and has her doing work even an intern wouldn’t touch, like picking up his kids. But his plan backfires when he sees his children grow attached to Kat and sees her getting comfortable in his home. It triggers something deep within him, and it feels right to have her there. Will Tristan be able to keep his work and personal lives separate, or will he find that his heart holds the final verdict?





Yes to everything about this story! It is short and sweet, which I find that I really enjoyed for it being the first book in a new series. 

Kat is the newbie right out of law school working for Tristan's law firm. At first she doesn't work directly under him until Jaxon is suddenly gone, and what was a job she loves turns into one she's becoming to hate. Kat is a go-getter though, she won't give up even though she's doing things she didn't sign up for and I love that about her. She's sweet to the kids even though she doesn't necessarily want to be their nanny, and is so nice to Tristan even when he acts like a jerk for no reason. But of course there are reasons and Kat uses her all of her great skills to uncover what's behind his hard exterior. Tristan turns into such a perfect gentleman too, and I love how he warms up to Kat!

I loved the way the story quickly progressed, it's filled with the perfect amount of tension and so much chemistry! Fernando was able to make me fall in love with every single character in the span of 110 pages, and I'm going crazy for more. Jaxon of course has piqued my curiosity and I'm so glad his book is next! Fernando has started The Conflict of Interest Series with a bang!

Dirty Boxing by Harper St. George and Tara Wyatt


Title: Dirty Boxing
Author: Harper St. George and Tara Wyatt
Series: Blood and Glory #1
Publisher: Pocket Star
Release Date: September 18, 2017
ISBN 9781501170195
$1.99





Perfect for fans of emotionally charged, sexy reads, Dirty Boxing, the first installment in the Blood and Glory series, reveals that the mixed martial arts battles waged inside the octagon are second only to the battles fought in the name of love.

After an unstable childhood, Jules Darcy is very familiar with the risks of falling in love. And as an adult, she’s never let herself forget just how high those stakes can be. That’s why she ran away a year ago after her fling with MMA fighter Nick Giannakis quickly got serious. But when she jumps at the opportunity to reconnect with her dad by accepting a job with his growing fight league, she’s stunned to learn the abs, the chiseled arms, and the rock-solid punches she has to market belong to none other than her former fling. Unable to run away from the sexy middleweight this time, Jules vows to keep things strictly professional. But one look at Nick, and her resolve starts to crumble….

The last thing Nick expects when he signs with the prestigious World Fighting Championship is that he’ll have to work with the only woman who ever broke his heart. Desperate to hide the pain she caused him, Nick vows to keep his distance from his gorgeous ex. But when he realizes their intense chemistry hasn’t faded after a year apart, he wonders if they could have a future together, even if dating the boss’s daughter could complicate his bid for the championship belt.

Under the bright lights of Las Vegas, in the world of high-stakes prize fighting, they’ll have to take a risk and decide if their love is worth fighting for.






Wow! Dirty Boxing is sexy!

One of my favorite types of romances is the second chance category. The idea of two people getting a second chance to make it right appeals to my romantic heart. 

Jules Darcy accepts a job with her father's organization the World Fighting Championship. Jules has had a rocky relationship with her dad. She remembers the fights with her mother and his disappearing act later on. When he offers her a job, she sees it as a means to mend their broken relationship. She also knows she can help with his PR campaign and make it a successful one. What she was not expecting was to see Nick Giannakis again. She left him a year ago after breaking his heart and walking away from their strong connection just a few weeks after they meet. Jules doesn't think she can have a successful relationship after her upbringing but Nick is determined to show her. 

Nick Giannakis joins the World Fighting Championship in search for the middleweight MMA championship belt. He knows he can work hard to succeed except his concentration keeps of being a problem when he can only think about Jules. At first, he is angry at her but once she explains her reasons for leaving him, he's determined to convince her they can make it work. But can he get the girl and the belt at the same time?

I love Nick. Gorgeous, sweet and sexy all in one package!. He fought for their second chance without playing any games. Even though I usually don't like a heroine who keeps on pushing the guy away, I completely understood where Jules was coming from. My heart was beating for these two! They had great chemistry and they deserved a happy ending. 

Of course, after a finish Dirty Boxing, I couldn't keep myself from reading the beginning of book two and I'm already pumped for it. 

Cliffhanger: No

Jules tugged Nick into a dark, semisecluded corner, as far away from Mia and Lana as possible. A large palm mostly sheltered them from view, but they were far from alone. “You’re already on thin ice here, Giannakis. My father has it out for you. He signed you because of your fan base and your marketability, but he doesn’t like you. You need to behave.” She leaned toward him, practically hissing out the last few words. Damn, that closeness felt good. 
He crossed his arms, snorting out a chuckle. “You dragged me away from those women because you’re worried about what your father thinks?” Before she could respond, he backed her up against the wall, caging her body with his. “I think you didn’t like watching me flirt.” 
Her jaw clenched and her eyes flashed—lust and anger and need all shining out at him. “I went over there to save you from yourself, but it’s clear you don’t want my help.” 
“You’re right. Help isn’t even close to what I want from you.” 
Her body flared—her eyes, her nostrils, her chest—and her lips parted. “I refuse to do this with you right now, Nick. I’m working.” 
“That’s pretty goddamn ridiculous, seeing as you’re the one who hauled me into this corner because you couldn’t stand watching me have a good time with someone else.” 
“You have an ego the size of Texas,” she ground out, and he inched closer. 
His eyes closed for a second as he inhaled. Lavender. “But I’m right. Go ahead. Tell me I’m wrong.” 
She planted her hands on his chest, and he could tell she’d meant to push him away, but at the contact she’d stilled, leaving her palms flat against his pecs. His skin warmed at her touch. “Move.” 
“No.” 
“You’re a man-child.” 
He dipped his head and nipped at her earlobe. She let out a surprised gasp and shuddered. “And you’re the most frustrating, infuriating, gorgeously sexy woman I’ve ever laid eyes on.” 
Someone stumbled into Nick as they passed, and he pressed into Jules, taking the impact and sheltering her, but erasing all distance between them. Their eyes locked, and he knew she could feel how hard he was, his cock straining against his zipper as it pressed against her hip. 
He eased back just a little, and her brow furrowed, as though she didn’t want him to move away. Electricity charged through him, and before he could talk himself out of it, he covered her hand with his, slowly dragging it down his chest. Her breath caught, the black of her pupils almost completely eclipsing the blue of her eyes. His heart galloped in his chest as he waited for her to tug her hand away, but she didn’t. He slid her hand over his stomach, lower, lower, and stopped when it rested over the bulge in his pants. 
“I may have been talking to other women, but none of them do this to me.” He moved her hand over him, a tiny stroke. “That’s all because of you.” 
He braced his hands on the wall on either side of her, not to cage her in, but to keep himself upright. She didn’t take her hand away, and he smiled, a victorious thrill rushing through him. Dropping his head, he kissed her neck. For a year he’d thought he’d never feel her skin under his mouth again, and he closed his eyes against the sudden onslaught of emotion churning through him. She moved her hand over him in another little stroke, and he flexed his hips into her touch. 
He managed to pull his head up, away from her. “Admit it, Jules. You want this.” 
She rubbed her palm over him. “I think you’re the one who wants this.” 
Their gazes locked again and the party swirled around them, music throbbing, voices shouting. Her fingers went to his zipper, and as she pulled it down with agonizing slowness, his balls tightened in anticipation.
