Book Spotlight: Caulky by K.M. Neuhold

Caulky (Four Bears Construction #1) by K.M. Neuhold Date Released: February 7, 2020
About Caulky Ren is in desperate need of a rebound fling. Lucky for him the smoking hot contractor he hired has just the tool for the job.
The last thing I want is another relationship, or another broken heart.
All I need are my bees and the occasional hookup to scratch the itch.
Okay, maybe meeting up with my hot contractor weekly is a little more than occasional. And maybe the way I'm starting to feel about the guy I've been anonymously chatting with online should concern me.
But CaulkyAF doesn't want to meet, and Cole doesn't want anything serious, so what's the worst that could happen?

Caulky is book 1 in the Four Bears Construction series and can be read as a stand-alone. This is a funny, steamy MM story guaranteed to make you laugh and swoon. Absolutely NO cheating and NO love triangle.

Review: Caulky by K.M. Neuhold (Four Bears Construction #1)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Vibrant Promotions.
This book was exactly what I needed to kick off my weekend! K.M. Neuhold launches her new Four Bears Construction series with Caulky, a read which was both sweet and steamy. Forty-two-year-old Cole Williams is one of the four owners of Four Bears Construction, and he's never been one to commit to any sort of personal relationship. He's more than happy keeping things casual with hook-ups and one-night stands, although he's done the whole fuck buddies scenario in the past. Then thirty-five-year-old bee hobbyist and technical writer Ren (whose last name I can't recall seeing, but if you know what it is, feel free to let me know via the comments section!) comes along. It was supposed to be a one-time thing...that turned into a second encounter...and then a third. Ren know all too well what it's like to be the one left behind in a relationship, so hooking up with Cole was meant to be …

Book Spotlight: Zombie Playlist by Kirsty Dallas

Zombie Playlist by Kirsty Dallas Date Released: February 18, 2020
About Zombie Playlist Reader Warning: If you're sensitive to the occasional horror theme, smoking weed and nicotine, drinking vodka straight from the bottle, and a shit load of cursing, this epic fictional adventure may not be for you.
Some people are life-sucking, soul-destroying, end-of-the-world assholes…then there are zombies. Actually, they’re not really zombies, they’re infected, but you know, tomayto tomahto.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got my faults, too. My attitude downright sucks. I’m untrusting. I smoke and curse too much, and I’m somewhat of a kleptomaniac. In a normal world, those faults help keep my rock queen facade intact. But in this new world, one raging with illness and torn apart by the desperate and stupid, I’m what you would call a survivor.
My plan was simple, stay alive and protect my teenage sister. When a silent man with a steely gaze shot his way into my existence, I knew that more than my life …

Review: Zombie Playlist by Kirsty Dallas

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Enticing Journey Book Promotions.
Zombie Playlist marks my first read from Kirsty Dallas, although I do have one or two of her earlier titles somewhere on my Kindle app, and it turned out to be a wholly entertaining and refreshingly creative read from this new-to-me author. This book isn't your typical romance, and yep, there's more to it than "just" romance. It's a hybrid of a slew of sub-genres, and somehow, Dallas makes it all work, thanks in large part to the fact that she gives readers an honest-to-goodness enticing story about a rock goddess, her awesome sister, and a no-nonsense former soldier merely trying to survive to get to their destination. I'm not going to give any other details, though. Sorry, no spoilers. You'll just have to do yourselves a favor and start reading the book as soon as you possibly can.

This isn't a mere mashing together of a variety of elements, tossed to…

An Excerpt from Slow Dancing This was it. Their one-night-stand was about to officially become an affair. Was Logan really ready for this? There would be no going back. It was all casual to him, but she knew from experience that when all was said and done,…

Review: Slow Dancing by Stylo Fantôme

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions.
“You feel 'incomplete' because you've been running away from the one thing that made you whole. We're good without each other, Logan. Maybe even great. I kept dancing, and you kept singing. But we're best when we're together. You body and your heart already know this – that's why we always danced so well together. That's why you wrote a song about us and put it out there for me to find. But now it's time for your brain to catch up with the rest of you.”
Stylo Fantôme does it again! This author knows just how to get to me, and her latest standalone release is yet another example of how well she grabs my attention and holds on to it till we get to that happily-ever-after. Slow Dancing is the story of Logan Cassidy, a singer whose star is on the rise, and a dancer named Woods Donahue who's about to make the move on her and changes her world forever. She'…

Release Blitz: Slow Dances Under an Orange Moon by V.L. Locey

Slow Dances Under an Orange Moon (Colors of Love #4) by V.L. Locey Date Released: February 19, 2020
About Slow Dances Under an Orange Moon Can the love they once shared be saved or has the pain of the past eclipsed it?
It’s been twenty years since Kye McLeod left the quaint little mountain town of Spruce Lake, Maine to play professional hockey. He’s had his share of ups and downs, but his choice to hit the big city and not look back has paid off handsomely. The future hall-of-famer is now ready to retire and come out of that dark closet he’s been sequestered in since his first secretive kiss with Davy Aguirre in high school. Now that he’s heading home to keep an eye on his feisty grandfather, there might be the chance to rekindle the flame between him and Davy.
Kye quickly learns that the boy he left behind isn’t the man he’s now knocking heads with. He always imagined grown-up Davy—who now insists on being called David—would be beyond the pain that Kye’s youthful blunder caused him, but n…
