Review: Breakaway by Charlie Novak (Off the Pitch #1)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via LesCourt ARC Team.
Breakaway is the first book in the Off the Pitch series and it's the debut release from Charlie Novak. Twenty-three-year-old Christian King isn't a rising star in the world of English football; he's a bona fide star in the sport, taking his team Champions League and seen as the best qualified to become captain when England makes a run for the World Cup. Football is his life and being the best on the pitch has been his goal from the moment he fell in love with the sport at age four. He has no time for much of anything else, but when his twin sister reconnects with David Cade--the same David Cade who was once Christian's closest friend and supporter...and his first love. It's been six years since Christian ended their relationship to focus solely on football, and now finds his ex-boyfriend is no longer the boy whose heart he broke. David is twenty-five and finishing up his PhD while …

Release Blitz: It's Not Over by Kaylee Ryan & Lacey Black

It's Not Over by Kaylee Ryan & Lacey Black Release Date: July 23, 2019
About It's Not Over Gwen Lately, life definitely isn’t how I envisioned it. I had it all. The house, the job, the husband. Until one day, I didn’t. I don’t know when exactly things started to change between us, only that it did, and in a big way. So much so, I found myself standing before a judge and signing off on the end of my marriage. To the only man, I’ve ever loved. 
Now, he’s back, fighting, and ready to prove to me that we made a mistake, that our love is worth giving this another chance. I’m not sure if he’s right, but I know what my heart wants, and it wants him. My ex-husband.

Harrison Why is it that you don’t know the depths of your mistakes until you’ve already made them? I knew signing those papers was a bad idea, but I thought that’s what she wanted. The minute we stepped foot out of that courtroom, it hit me. She’s no longer mine.
That’s when I also realized, that I would do anything to chang…

Review: Operation Bailey Wedding by Piper Rayne (The Baileys #3.5)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the authors via Wildfire Marketing Solutions.
Before the writing duo of Piper Rayne rolls out the next three full-length novels in their much adored TheBaileys series, they give fans and readers a novella to whet everyone's appetite for this close-knit family. Operation Bailey Wedding is told from several different perspectives, namely, Austin Bailey, Savannah Bailey, Brooklyn Bailey, Rome Bailey, Denver Bailey, Holly Radcliffe, Liam Kelly, Wyatt Whitmore, Harley Miller, and Grandma Dori Bailey. There may even be a couple more, but I'll leave these two cuties as surprises for you to discover when you read the book.

It's just a few days before Austin Bailey and Holly Radcliffe tie the knot, which is the perfect next step in their love story which started with a one-night stand. But issues pop up, one after the other, leaving both Austin and Holly stressed out. Could there be a very real possibility that the wedding that al…

Review: Rules to Follow by Susan Hawke (Davey's Rules #1)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.
I may have become a wee bit addicted to Susan Hawke's Lovestrong series, so when she announced that she was going to start a new series, I was both anxious and antsy. The former had to do with this new setting and cast of characters and the latter with just the overall excitement to get my greedy hands on Hawke's newest release. The new series is entitled Davey's Rules and it's all about boys and their Daddies and how not all relationships that may share one kink are the same. Oh, and the titular Davey? He's a brat who's outspoken and may be a stickler for his own set of rules, but is wonderfully loyal and loving to those who mean the most to him. Sounds interesting, right? Just a quick trigger warning for book one: domestic abuse does take place off-page between one of the main characters and his then-boyfriend, so consider yourself forewarned if that's a sensitive subject or hot button topic.
