• Change Up by Sloan Johnson

    A book by Sloan Johnson always leaves me with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes.  Communication in a relationship is a must as we saw with Clint and Kevin.  It helps to communicate with yourself as well.  We tend to lie to ourselves, which in turn, lie to other people.  Once you are truthful to yourself, you can communicate real truth with everyone else.

    I loved that Clint’s father called him on his shit.  That Kevin got the parental back up he never got.  That got me choked up.  

    Thoughtful, heart-warming and a book that you will read in one sitting.

    WildPitchKevin Green has always been the life of the party. He’s the one everyone turns to for a bit of comic relief. With so many of his teammates coming out of the closet and living healthy lives, it’s getting harder for him to keep the secret only one other person knows: that he’s not as straight as everyone assumes when they see him out with his hot girlfriend. Now, the façade is cracking as Amber decides it’s time to follow her dreams, but she doesn’t want to leave until she knows Kevin will embrace the side of him he’s hidden from everyone but her.

    Clint Davies isn’t sure what to think of his new road roommate assignment. Kevin runs hot and cold toward him and has zero sense of boundaries. He doesn’t think before he speaks, and worse, before he acts. What starts as one night of throwing caution to the wind is instantly complicated in ways Clint isn’t prepared to deal with. He’s never seriously considered a relationship at all, much less an open arrangement with a teammate.

    Having a little fun is one thing, but will Kevin and Clint strike out when things start getting serious?

  • Rush by CA Harms

    Just finished this book.  The first thing you need to know is DO NOT READ THIS AT WORK.  I did and I had to hide the tears and my eyeliner teardrops.  The beginning reminded me of a certain movie I saw once, but not even that movie had me crying the way this book did.  Kinsley is a woman broken by the man she trusted, but it also gave her a strength she couldn’t see.  I love the fact that Ashton was able to see that strength though.  He is definitely book boyfriend material, as are his brothers, Knox and Beck.  They are the knights in shining armor I know I always dreamed of, only these knights ride in black cars driven by Murray. 

    A fantastic read, and I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.



    I was running from my husband, a man I thought I’d known. Running from the hell he had put me through.  He’d nearly destroyed the woman I had once been and I would do whatever it took to regain my freedom. 
    I would lie, and cheat.  I would steal if it meant that I never had to go back there.  I’d run and keep running… 
    But there was one problem. I hadn’t planned for Ashton Montgomery.  He was a distraction I couldn’t allow. Not if I wanted to stay safe. I had to remain distant, but he was relentless and had other ideas. 
    I caved because I hadn’t thought it all through, not in detail.  If I had I would’ve realized that you can only live in a fantasy world for so long before everything came crashing in around you. 
    And those lives you’ve destroyed along the way, make you no better than the monster you were trying to break free from.  How could I have been so careless?  It wasn’t meant to turn out this way.
    But the Rush of my freedom took control and I forgot how important it was to keep the secret of who I had once been.  And now I had nothing.  Only the fear that the man I’d run from would find me again, and finish what he started. 



    C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn’t always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.

    She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.

  • THE SEASON: Kingston

    This is Nicole’s first foray into the world of sports romance.  All i have to say is to keep writing them.

    This book was phenomenal.  Loved it.  I really loved that we not only had Kingston and Ellie’s point of views, but also Bianca’s as well.  I mean in a relationship between two people and one has a kid, that person is in a relationship with that kid too.  I loved seeing how everything affected Bianca.  

    I think Rush needs to bring Ellie to Club Destiny, you know, to aid him in getting her kinkier!

    Becoming a goaltender in the NHL is the only thing I ever wanted for myself.
    Goal accomplished.
    Two years ago, I was the best goalie in the league, for the third time. With our Stanley Cup win, the Austin Arrows were on top of the world. Nothing could possibly bring us down.
    Turns out, even when you’re at the top, you can find yourself back at rock bottom. But it gets worse.
    Not only did the team fall from grace, then I did too. I was accused of something I didn’t do. And now I’m being forced to repair my tarnished reputation.
    Only I don’t know how to do that.
    When the suggestion is made for me to pull off this ruse for the media, I know what I’m getting into. I also know there’s only one right answer.
    But it’s complicated, and I’m not the only one who could get hurt.
    There’s only one major problem….I can’t say no.

    “…And watching as we lost six of the seven preseason games gave me a bit of heartburn, as well, but I’m holding out hope for this year. We’re skating well, have solid puck handling, the team looks strong. Much stronger than last year, but we’ve still got a long way to go.

    Admittedly, I couldn’t let go of some of my key players, no matter how much of a disgrace they’ve been to the team. But I’ve got my eye on one of them in particular right now. Kingston Rush, a.k.a. Mount Rushmore.

    Here’s a guy who was the league’s top goalie two years ago, with three Vezina Trophies under his belt. Quite frankly, he’s a beast and a huge asset to this team—when he’s on his game, that is—so I’m hoping a little extra attention might go a long way.

    I have an idea of what got his jock strap in a twist; I simply need to dig deeper to get to the root of it. Something, or rather someone, turned him from the easygoing, mysterious badass to an instigator who started picking fights with everyone.” – Phoenix Pierce, Owner – Austin Arrows
