Jock Rule by Sara Ney

         



Kip Carmichael is no pretty boy.

He's a rough. Dirty. Giant. Hair so unruly, and a beard so thick, his friends on the team call him Sasquatch.

The first time Sasquatch lays eyes on Theodora "Teddy" Johnson across the keg at a party one night on Jock Row, she'd been relegated to the sidelines by her jock hungry "friends."

Week-after-week, he watches beautiful but bashful Teddy getting overshadowed, and overlooked. Sasquatch finally broad shoulders his way through the crowd, offering to to be her hairy godmother. But the minute their eyes meet? He's a goner.

Teaching her the RULES for winning a jock will be the easy part. Not falling in love with her is going to be a losing game.

 



 

When I read the blurb for Jock Rule I was instantly intrigued. Who doesn't love a good sports romance with a hot athlete? I soon realized that while this book is a stand alone, it's book two in the Jock Hard series. I immediately scooped up the first book and dived in. I loved it and couldn't wait to start Jock Rule. 

Jock Rule is the story of Kip "Sasquatch" Carmichael and Teddy Johnson. Kip is on the rugby team and has a secret that he wants to make sure no one knows. He has taken a lot of measures to make sure it stays a secret. I liked Kip, he was witty and sweet.  Teddy Johnson has had to work for everything she has. She's quiet and timid. I liked Teddy but at times I wanted to shake her and make her wake up and see what was happening around her. She let everyone just walk all over her. 

Kip sees Teddy getting taken advantage of week after week and being the gentleman that he is decides he needs to help her out. The banter and back and forth between these two was quite comical. I laughed so many times. 

I really, really wanted to love this book. I just didn't. It seemed forced and rushed a lot of times and certain issues that were mentioned multiple times seemed to be wrapped up with no real explanation. I just wanted more. I enjoy Sara's writing but this one just didn't win me over like I thought it would.

Tripping on a Halo by Alessandra Torre

Tripping on a Halo
by Alessandra Torre
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cover Designer: Perfect Pear Creative Covers
Release Date: December 7, 2018
 

It’s really hard to save a guy’s life when he keeps running from you.
You might be asking yourself why I’m waving an inflatable penis in the air and screaming at the top of my lungs. If I took time to explain, Declan Moss would get hit by a bus.
Let me back up. I didn’t ask for this. I was perfectly happy—and perfectly sane—before I was tasked with keeping Declan Moss alive. It was a thankless job until the moment that my panties dropped and his delicious smirk found his way in between my thighs.
Hello, toe-curling ecstasy. Goodbye, professional boundaries. And suddenly, there’s a new danger to avoid: the falling of my heart.

Goodreads

 

 
I am always excited when Alessandra Torre is putting out a new book. I'm even more excited when I find out it's a romantic comedy. Tripping on a Halo is a sweet, laugh out loud, swoon worthy book. Tripping on a Halo tells the story of "Gaurdian Angel" Autumn and Declan Moss. 
Declan Moss is living his life. He's an architect that recently opened his own firm with his best friend. He's about to land a major contract that will propel his company. He just has one problem, a stalker. He can't shake this blonde that seems absolutely off her rocker.
Autumn is not off of her rocker. She's just trying to do her job, keep Declan alive. Everyone else might think she's crazy but she knows she's not. So what if she swings an over sized penis around and knows Declan's every move. That does not make her crazy, it makes her good at her job. 
I adored the quirkiness of Autumn. There were many, many times that I was laughing out loud at her words and stunts. The cover of this book is 100% how I picture Autumn after finishing this book. It's SO fitting. 
Delcan Moss is sweet and sexy and man did I swoon. I swooned, HARD. 
I loved the banter between Declan and Autumn. I loved watching their relationship blossom. Tripping on a Halo also has a twist that I never saw coming. I knew there would be a twist, there always is in an Alessandra Torre book, but I didn't expect the twist to be it what it was. My jaw dropped open and I had to reread the page to make sure I was reading it right.
We can't forget a very special side character in this story. Mr. Oinks is EVERYTHING. I now want a micro pig. Everyone should have a micro pig like Mr. Oinks. We also get glimpses of previous characters from Alessandra's books. If you're an avid reader of hers you'll instantly spot the Easter eggs she drops.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. If you're looking for a fun, quirky read make sure you pick this one up.

Unleashed was such a great read. I loved Rutledge and Peyton. They were so complimentary to each other. With a dash of mystery, a whole lot of sexy, a few laughs and ALL THE FEELS, I didn't want to put Unleashed down. The authors did a fantastic job of capturing small town living, making you feel like you were in Ogg's with Rut and Peyton. 



L.A. Fiore

LA Fiore is a hybrid author of thirteen novels. She believes in a happily ever after, but she likes to make her readers work for it.

Anthony Dwayne

Anthony started writing years ago as a hobby, but it quickly turned into a passion. He first began publishing under the name, Kane Caldwell, but has since changed the name he will continue publishing under. He is the epitome of a country boy with jeans, t-shirt, hat (No, not a cowboy hat. Lol), scruffy face, work boots on, driving his truck and definitely not a guy you'd picture writing romance. Anthony works in the construction business where he runs his own crew. He has two awesome boys, and an amazing woman that keeps him on the edge. He drinks way too much coffee and probably curses in one day what others curse in their lifetime. Lol! Anthony resides in the south where the weather is warm but most times sweltering hot. During down time, he loves to be surrounded by family, friends, great food, or engrossed in a good book. And of course, putting his imagination to work, where reality and fantasy collide.

Cover Reveal : Catastrophe Queen by Emma Hart

CQ-BANNERTWO.jpg

One hot mess. One hot boss. One too many hot encounters...

Catastrophe Queen, an all-new hilarious office romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is coming January 29th!

CQ-cover3.3.jpg
It’s not you. It’s me.
No, seriously. It is me. Not only does my name literally mean “unfortunate,” but that’s the story of my life.
Everything I touch turns to cr*p. An apartment fire—that I swear I was not responsible for—means I’m living back at home with my s*x-mad parents. Yay, me!
Which is why I need my new job as personal assistant to Cameron Reid to get back on my feet. Three months in this job and I can move back out and, hopefully, remember to turn off my flat iron once in a while.
Ahem.
On paper, my job is easy. Make coffee. Book appointments. Keep everything in order.
Until I walk in on my boss, half-naked, wearing nothing but the kind of tiny white towel that dreams are made of.
Now, nothing is easy—except our mutual attraction. But he’s my boss, and you know what they say about mixing work and pleasure: unless you do p*rn, it’s just not worth it.
Or is it?
