The Revenge Pact (Kings of Football #1) by Ilsa Madden-Mills Release Date: December 3, 2020 About The Revenge Pact River Tate is a god on campus.  The king of football. A tattooed bad boy with gunmetal eyes that see right through you.  The only chink in his armor is her , the girl he pretends doesn’t exist, the forbidden one with the shy smile and lavender hair.    Anastasia Bailey is a nobody.  The queen of nothing. An outsider with the face of an angel and a body made for sin.  The only chink in her armor is him , her boyfriend’s frat brother, the football player who hates her.    But when Anastasia’s life crashes down, River’s the one who sweeps in and picks up the pieces. Torn between loyalty, lies, and secrets, he battles the temptation to take everything from her when they make their revenge pact.   He can’t tell her no. Because revenge (or love) is sweet, and once you get a taste, the craving never ends. Read my five-plus-starred review of The Reven

Review: The Revenge Pact by Ilsa Madden-Miles (Kings of Football #1)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author. "River. Wait."   A sound comes from his throat, part frustration, part longing. "I'm always waiting." He shuts his eyes. "He's my friend and a brother, Ana. I can't be your revenge."   The he's gone before I can tell him that this, this was never about revenge...   Oh no. It's something else entirely. This book! Gah! There were tears, people! That's how much The Revenge Pact , the first novel in the multi-authored Kings of Football series, got to me, and Ilsa Madden-Mills has set the bar astronomically high for the next two books. The series is about three best friends who are seniors and belong to the same college football team, the Braxton Badgers: River Tate, the wide receiver, Crew Smith, the quarterback, and Hollis Hudson, the tight end. Madden-Mills's book introduces readers to all three, but its spotlight is on twenty-one-year-old River, who also happen

View with Your Heart (Heart #5) by L.B. Dunbar Re-Release Date: December 3, 2020 About View with Your Heart When a prodigal son returns to his small town, secrets could prevent a second chance at romance. At eighteen, I fell in love with a girl for a summer. At twenty-five, I spent a lust-filled weekend with her. At thirty-eight, I hadn’t planned to give her my heart. But you know what they say about third times... Gavin Scott left home long ago. On his way as a promising professional baseball player, he missed nothing from his small-town other than one woman and a few wild nights one summer. Not prone to sentimentality, he hasn’t looked back until life threw him a curveball and an invitation for his new venture returns him to his roots, where he learns the woman he’s never been able to forget is still there. Britton McKay didn’t expect to stay. Elk Lake City was only her summer town until life changed course more times than she could keep track. As the owner of the local

Review: View with Your Heart by L.B. Dunbar (Heart #5)

Image
Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Wildfire Marketing Solutions. "I'm sorry I haven't been better." A better son. A better brother. A better person to Britton.   I wish I'd known I was going to need tissues while reading this book because I had to put my tablet down once the tears came and search for the nearest box of tissues in my room. View with Your Heart  is the fifth novel in L.B. Dunbar's Heart series, and this second-chance romance tugged at my heartstrings while also making me feel like I was on an emotional roller coaster. A quick note: Originally released a few years ago under the title Touch Screen and as part of the Senses series, this title has been revamped and includes new content, so if you read its original incarnation, you may want to read this newer one. They met when he was eighteen and she was sixteen, and over one summer, Gavin Scott and Britton McKay fell in love. The two teenagers had no choice but
