Review: Oversight by Santino Hassell (The Community #2)

Note: This ARC was provided by Riptide Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Holden closed his eyes for a moment, taking deep breaths and trying to push down the building urge to pull Six close to him. To kiss him. Be one with him. Because there wasn't time for that now. And he couldn't believe everything Six said. Especially when he'd hidden all this since stepping foot inside of Evolution. And Holden still had no idea if this was all a game. Clever words used to convince a mark.
I try to keep my expectations realistic when I read a new book, but let's be honest here. When it comes to go-to authors, expectations are higher. Take Santino Hassell for example. He's consistently left me awed with every novel of his that I've read. With Insight, the first in his The Community paranormal romance series and loosely connected to Stygian, he set the bar impossibly high for the two other novels to follow. Surprise, surprise. Oversight didn't jus…

Rock Star (Bad Boy Homecoming #5) by Stacey Kennedy Release Date: June 27, 2017
About Rock Star A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new erotic romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy. 
Veterinarian Rae Evans expects to attend a dreadful ten-year high school reunion. Instead, she’s confronted by a past she’s never gotten over. The love of her life, Travis Walker, has returned to Catfish Creek, and the now-famous rock star wants only three things: Her. Naked. And screaming his name.
Fresh off his last world tour, Travis has returned to town to get a dose of reality. With fame casting a superficial cloud over Travis’s life, he’s scrambling to stay afloat. He needs an anchor, and Rae is that for him. But as he finds himself, he’s determined to remind Rae of the heat that once burned between them.
Before they know it, their one hot night is three, and soon, just like ten years ago, Travis holds the strings to Rae’s heart…

Review: Rock Star by Stacey Kennedy (Bad Boy Homecoming #5)

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
Author Stacey Kennedy's Rock Star is the fifth and final story in the multi-authored Bad Boy Homecoming series. While all five books can more or less be read as standalones, if you intend to read every single one of the stories, I'm recommending you read them in order--Dropout by Carrie Ann Ryan, Trouble by Avery Flynn, Prom Queen by Katee Robert, Honor by Kennedy Layne, and Rock Star by Stacey Kennedy. There are spoilers here concerning other couples in the series, so consider that fair warning. They're all fairly short reads, so I think one weekend will suffice.

Rock Star is the story of high school sweethearts Travis Walker and Rae Evans, who, at eighteen, went their separate ways in order to pursue their dreams--his to become a famous singer and songwriter and hers to become a veterinarian and open multiple clinics--even though they were both madly in love. At their tenth ye…
