Photographer: Brian Jamie
Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs

And the new heavyweight champion of the world is...

Those are the words that Zeus Kincaid has been waiting to hear since he first put on a pair of boxing gloves. He just didn't think it would come with a tragedy that would change how he viewed the boxing world forever.

After staying out of the spotlight for a year, it's now time for Zeus to make his return to the ring.

Cameron Reed was in her second year at Juilliard when her childhood sweetheart, Zeus Kincaid, walked away from her without a backward glance. Then, a few short months later, Cam realized that she would never fulfill her dream of dancing for the New York City Ballet.

Now working as a go-go dancer in an upscale club in Manhattan, Cam is unexpectedly brought face-to-face with the man she once loved.

And it's now her turn to walk away from him.

After five long years of missing Cam, letting her go again isn't something Zeus is prepared to do.

That's why he finds himself standing on her doorstep the next morning.

Only things don't go quite as Zeus expected.

Hidden Seams

   

A billion-dollar fashion empire, and it’s about to be mine...

I've worked a decade for this. I've sold my soul and my reputation. I've lived a lie, smiled for the cameras, and hated myself, all for this inheritance. And then ... she pops up. A mysterious heir with a rap sheet, combat boots, and a mouth that I want to pin shut with my— It doesn’t matter. I’ve played this game for a decade. I can continue the charade a little longer, keep my hands to myself and her body out of my mind. I can keep my secret until the ink dries and everything is mine. Or not.

GOODREADS



Hidden Seams was a brilliant story with many different sides to it. The main focus was, of course, the romance between Marco and Avery but then there was also the part of Avery trying to find out who she was, and Marco's struggle to keep his best friends secret. it all came together really well and that was my best part of the story for me.

It's sounds crazy to say but these characters were better together because it was like they came alive with all of the chemistry between them. Separately they were great to get to know and they both had a lot going on in their personal lives, but when they were together it was like they had so much more energy and it made me like them a lot more. 

The story was unique, I thought, since it's not everyday you read a straight man playing a gay man. Though I liked that the book wasn't full of drama because of that situation and instead it was all pretty light. I felt like that worked better with the characters and gave more space to see how they reacted to the connection they shared.

Lost For You is only my second book by this author but I'm really enjoying her writing style. She was able to get me very invested into these characters, and not once did I get bored with them. I could feel the connection between Chase and and Taryn easily and it had me rooting for them to get together for more than just a night. 

I can't say that their relationship was easy, because it certainly had some low points, but those high ones came and made it all better. I just loved that they had so much pushing them apart, yet they were able to fight through those issues. Both characters had some big turning points in their personal life and I really liked that we got to see how they grew from those moments and I thought their character development was very well done. 

Really the only thing that, for me, was a negative part of this book was Chase's drug addiction. I don't like reading about characters that do drugs so that was kind of hard for me to get past. The ending of the book though gave me some closure on that issue. Overall, definitely a book I would recommend to my fellow readers. It can certainly be read as a standalone, unless you're someone that gets too curious about secondary characters that have already had their story being mentioned.

Ace




Title: Ace
A Moonshine Task Force Series Novel
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 12, 2018

Blurb

Ace is saving lives and mending hearts.......

Anthony “Ace” Bailey

I’m not a rules kinda guy

Department Policy? Kinda sucks, but I do what I have to for the job that I love.
Playing it safe? Not my thing.
Married? No big deal when I know she’s unhappy and scared.

I’m one of those guys – a sniper in the military, a little bit of an adrenaline junkie, and a member of the Moonshine Task Force. I’ve lived through some shit.

My gut has never failed me. It’s my sixth-sense. Warning me of a gunshot coming my way, of a traffic stop being potentially deadly, or the tingling in the back of my neck when I go to sleep telling me I’ll be woken up by a call in the middle of the night. My gut has always kept me honest.

Like the day I walked into The CafĂ© and saw the new waitress. There was a ring on her left hand, but I didn’t care. One look in her eyes told me everything I needed to know. Her marriage wasn’t one made of love and respect. It was one made of fear and doubt.

It’s why I ignored that ring, why I arrested her husband, and the reason I’m willing to take my time. Patience is a virtue, and with this woman, I have it in spades.


Violet Miller

Meeting Anthony Bailey changed my life. He did things that no one else has ever done for me.

Feeling safe? Never happened before.
Feeling wanted? It’s been years.
Being independent? I’m learning.

It’s foreign, not having someone question my every move, being able to eat what I want for dinner, and sitting out on my front porch talking to Anthony every night while we share a couple beers.

I try to tell myself he’s just being nice; that he’s doing his job and working within the community. The problem? The night he takes the kiss we both want, everything changes, and I can no longer deny what I feel. But it doesn’t stop me from trying – and I learn quickly that Ace knows me better than anyone else ever has – including myself.

All I can do is hang on, as he takes me on the scariest journey of my life. The one that bends us until we almost break, and ends with a happily ever after I never thought I would get.

ACE includes the wedding of a beloved couple, an appearance by Reaper, and the continuation of EVERYONE falling in love with Caleb!

I've been waiting for this book since the beginning of the series and Laramie Briscoe did not disappoint. Ace and Violet captured my heart with this story and I loved getting to see them heal together. 

After her husband attacked her, Violet never thought she'd trust someone again. But from the second she was released from the hospital Ace was right there to hold her hand and help her get by. Their relationship was slow, but full of love, which was the best thing for them. 

I don't typically like when there are time jumps in stories but for this book it worked perfectly with the story. We got to see Ace and Violet throughout the many hurdles they had to go over and seeing how they handled those together was what made this book brilliant. It was more about healing than about discovering their love for one another since there was no question that they were perfect for each other.

I definitely recommend this book, and series. This one can't really be read as a standalone since it opens up where the last one left off.

The Wright Secret


THE WRIGHT SECRET 
K.A Linde 
January 9, 2018

I was just his best friend’s little sister.
But he was always more than that to me.

After twelve years of pining over Patrick’s easy smile, baby blues, and captivating charm, I decide to take matters into my own hands—and completely blow my chance.

Who knew a self-proclaimed manwhore would decide to be a gentleman the first time I’m naked in his bed? Definitely, not me. But when I land there again, neither of us has any intention of stopping.
There’s only one problem: nobody can know. Especially not my three older brothers. If they found out, all hell would break loose.
So I’m willing to keep our secret. Because I want him Wright here, right now.

✦ Amazon US → http://amzn.to/2uH9xme
✦ Google Play → smarturl.it/GoogleTWSecret



The Wright Secret is hands down my favorite in this series that isn't a series. It follows Morgan Wright, new CEO of Wright Construction, and her brothers best friend, Patrick. That's right, this is a brothers-best-friend trope. *cue fangirling*

It doesn't happen often that I like the heroine of a novel more than I like the hero, but Morgan stole my heart in this book. I loved how she took her work so seriously and wouldn't let anyone keep her down or make her think she's not being good enough. As much as it sucks, being a woman in such a high position comes with people wanting to make your life ten times harder, but Morgan stood up to all of that and I really admired her. 

And Patrick was right there to support her the entire time. Even though he comes second for me I still adored him and thought he and Morgan were perfect together. The forbidden aspect of their relationship in the beginning was my favorite part but I also loved them when they weren't sneaking around. They had an amazing connection that was prevalent from the very beginning and it was great to see how drawn to each other they were. It took Patrick a little longer to realize he didn't look at Morgan like just another sister, but when he did oh man was it hot. 

Overall, this book is definitely a recommend. It can be read as a standalone, clearly since the Wright books aren't actually a series, but I think you'll find yourself curious about the other Wright's and the previous books are a big recommendation from me too.
