RELEASE BLITZ ~ Clinched: A Single Dad Romance ~ Author: Nikki Ash ~ Genre: Contemporary/Single Dad Romance, Release Date: April 28, 2018

Title: Clinched: A Single Dad Romance
Author: Nikki Ash
Genre: Contemporary/Single Dad Romance
Release Date: April 28, 2018

Charlie is everything I want and didn’t realize I need. It’s clear to me now that the woman I met at the club is only one layer of the woman I’m falling for. I’m a fixer by nature but for the first time I wouldn’t fix a thing. I want her just the way she is. Broken pieces and all. Who needs the fairy tale when we can have the reality. 

Tristan is everything I want, yet don’t deserve. He’s loving, protective, smart, an amazing father, and he’s on to me. That’s why I need to speed this story up and tell him everything, so we can flip to the end of the book, and him and his daughter can move on to the next story. One where they get a happily ever after. Because there’s no story I’m a part of that ends in any way but tragedy. 


“Holy Hell! Oh. My. God!
I don’t even know where to begin with this book!
To say I loved it is a HUGE understatement.” – blog


“I could not put this book down!! I read every chance I got.” – Shannon

“Oh my gosh what a story I simply fell in love with Tristan and Charlie …..” – Heather Dee
5 Fantastic Stars!

Holy Hell! Oh. My. God!
I don’t even know where to begin with this book!
To say I loved it is a HUGE understatement.

I’m determined to write this review without spoiling anything for you. There was so much going on here and this book was overloaded with feels. There is tragedy but there is also so much laughter. I cried both happy and gut wrenching tears. From page one I was engaged. And the only reason it became necessary to put my Kindle down was because I needed to take care of my family. The nerve of them taking me from my reading, lol. 🙂 I will add this book has one of the very best endings I have ever read!

I have only read a few books by this author and I have loved every single one. Nikki Ash has an amazing talent for storytelling. She is not afraid to cross some boundaries or break your heart to pieces. I promise you though, she will do an absolutely amazing and satisfying job of piecing your heart back together.

Tristan and Charlie were two of my favorite characters of the year. Hands down, I mean that. I can’t say too much without giving you spoilers but I can say there are a few other characters in this book that you will love. There is no way you couldn’t.

Tristan is a single father. He is a great dad, a great friend. Tristan is at the top of my book boyfriend list. He has a protective and loyal side. He is kind, friendly, and so so sexy. There is no way you can’t love him.

Charlie has been through unimaginable trauma. She is guarded and wary of everyone and everything around her. All with good reason. Her circumstances gutted me. Completely. Charlie never saw Tristan coming. Or his adorable daughter. They both helped to heal her. They showed her unconditional love and support. I loved Charlie!

This is one of the best books I’ve read this year. While Charlie and Tristan’s relationship grew slowly, I never felt frustrated by the pace. In fact, this book would not have been believable otherwise. While I can’t say this book was relatable (for obvious reasons), it was everything I look for in the perfect read.

If you haven’t read this author yet, I recommend her highly. That said, I have read a few of her books and look forward to reading more. I only wish there was more reading time available in my days. Tristan’s best friend Mason has a book coming soon. I plan to grab that one as soon as it releases!

This is my unbiased and honest review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Her would-be savior arrives in the middle of a Minnesota blizzard and she’s determined to prove to her reluctant, and trapped, financier the lodge is a sound investment. But Harper isn’t completely honest with him. And she has no idea the lake is hiding secrets of its own.

Excerpt, Lies and Solace:
As she stared into his dark eyes she realized how much she trusted him, and relied on him. That was something rare for her. The only people she trusted as much were her sisters.
I’m in love with him.
The thought blasted through her brain with the force of a tsunami. The tension of the last few weeks, the insecurity, the mistrust, the fear, slipped easily from her shoulders. For the first time, her mind was clear. She was in love with Ethan and she didn’t want to wait anymore. She wanted him. She wanted him to be her first, her last.
Finding courage she didn’t know she possessed, Harper slid off the stool and walked around the island. She plucked the wine glass from his hand and set it on the counter, then placed his hand on her breast. “Make love with me, Ethan.”
A fire lit in his eyes, telling her he wanted her, too. But there was a question there, a hesitation. “Are you sure?”
She’d never been more sure of anything in her life. “Yes.”
“Shhh. Let’s not talk anymore.” She placed one finger over his lips, then stood on her tiptoes and kissed him.
Ethan’s reaction was lightning swift. He wrapped his arms around her and brought her close, his mouth descending on hers in a wild, warm kiss. Their tongues tangled, slid over each other. She’d missed his touch, his taste. She moaned, and in the sound she heard thirty-two years of longing.
For this. For him.

About Jana Richards: 

When Jana Richards read her first romance novel, she immediately knew two things: she had to commit the stories running through her head to paper, and they had to end with a happily ever after. She also knew she’d found what she was meant to do. Since then she’s never met a romance genre she didn’t like. She writes contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and historical romance set in World War Two, in lengths ranging from short story to full length novel. Just for fun, she throws in generous helpings of humor, and the occasional dash of the paranormal. Her paranormal romantic suspense “Seeing Things” was a 2008 EPPIE finalist.
In her life away from writing, Jana is an accountant/admin assistant, a mother to two grown daughters, and a wife to her husband Warren. She enjoys golf, yoga, movies, concerts, travel and reading, not necessarily in that order. She and her husband live in Winnipeg, Canada with their Pug/Terrier cross Lou and several unnamed goldfish. She loves to hear from readers and can be reached through her website at

The McKinney Brothers, Book 1

They meet on a beach. . . . Abby Davis isn’t wearing a skimpy bikini or sipping umbrella drinks, not when she’s busy chasing around four little ones. And Matt McKinney isn’t looking for fun—he’s a Navy SEAL, a grown man with a long list of missions . . . and fallen brothers.
They only have a week. . . . Abby has brought her children to this beach to start over, to give them the enjoyable memories they deserve. Matt’s been sidelined by a combat injury, and haunted by the best friend he lost and the promise he made: to remain a SEAL—focused and dedicated. This leaves no time for what he’s always wanted: a family.
But a week is all it takes. . . . Matt opens her heart while Abby soothes his soul. And though they plan to say good-bye when the week is over, something magical happens on that beach, something neither can forget. Something utterly, completely worth falling for.

Worth the Fall (The McKinney Brothers, #1)Worth the Fall by Claudia Connor

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars!

This is one of those rare times where 5 stars is not enough. As a blogger/reviewer/beta reader, many amazing (and not so amazing) books come my way. The truth is that sometimes I’m reading so much for authors that I am slow to pick off of my Goodreads TBR. Well, I recently found myself with a small window where I could pick off my TBR. I purposely scrolled down with the intention of selecting a book that I shelved a while back. Additionally, I wanted to find an author that I haven’t read yet.

Lucky me! I picked a winner! I could kick my own butt for having this treasure under my nose for so long. And what makes me even happier is that this is a series. Yeah! 🙂

Claudia Connor has quickly moved up my list of favorite reads of 2018. Worth The Fall is easily in my top five favorites. Just wow! This book had everything I love in a perfect read. The way this author weaved this story, I can say with certainty that it is a one of a kind. I’ve read similar tropes of single parent and military many times before. But never this way. This story was magnificent. I want to recommend this book to all of my friends. And I plan to do just that. No one who loves intense romance with all the feels should miss out on this book. Another aspect I love with this author’s storytelling talents is that way she builds to the climax. You just know something is coming. And while this book is angsty, the author gives us enough throughout without spoiling the end. I never guessed. I just happily went along for the ride. And holy, holy, holy…..Matt McKinney is my favorite book boyfriend at the moment. That may change but let me tell you, it will not be easy to knock him of that pedestal.

Now I will try my best here not to spoil anything.

Matt is an active Navy SEAL on leave. He finds himself spending a week at a beach resort. While he started off with his cousin for company, Matt finds himself enjoying the solitude when Rob goes home early. While taking a walk on the beach, Matt meets Abby and her very young four children. Abby is also pregnant with number five. She is there alone. A widow. Abby is guarded and extremely protective of her heart. She will never give anyone the power to break it again. I completely adored this woman.

The relationship build between Abby and Matt is slow and careful. Matt knows he is dealing with a skittish young woman. That said, I never felt frustrated with the pace. As a matter of fact, I wouldn’t have believed their story otherwise. The author has an incredible talent for building tension so high. When Abby and Matt’s moment finally came, I believed every second of it. I was right there with them. The whole dynamic created by this author with Matt, Abby and her children was beautiful.

Their story was perfect. I cried, I laughed and at one time I was angry and heartbroken. Claudia Connor did a remarkable job of putting my shattered heart back together and calming my fears.

The McKinney family was perfectly imperfect. There are more brothers to get books. As a matter of fact I’ve already started reading Stephen’s book. Only 21% in and I know I’m in for another emotional ride.

I absolutely recommend this as a must read! I promise you will not come away from this book unchanged. This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Release Blitz: The Healer
by H.L. Girton
Genre: YA Paranormal Fantasy
Series: An Accalia Series Novella


I was nothing, a washed up, useless nobody to them. The angered look that permanently etched my face wasn’t new for any of them. The resting bitch face was something that defined me, Davina, the spoiled, unhappy, selfish brat. I suppose they were right about that. I really wasn’t a happy go lucky girl. I didn’t carry around a cheery disposition. I didn’t grow up showered with love and affection or dolls and ponies. I wasn’t a pampered princess like that.
No. I was raised with wolves.


His voice rose from the crystal but I could not see who was speaking. It was comforting and familiar. A sound I hadn’t heard in a very long time. 
“Father?” I whispered.
His ghostly figure appeared before me, standing in the center of the floating petals. His form was barely visible. His presence was only allowed because of the magic that the ritual possessed. He stood tall and proud. His jaw was firm and his eyes were set, the face of a warrior, but he had the tender smile of a father and sparkling eyes full of pride.
I found myself leery, gawking at the figure that stood before me, I wasn’t sure how to react to seeing my dead father materializing in front of me. I hardly remembered him or knew him, but deep down the girl I once was still longed for my father. Mark had been the only father I truly knew, but there was my very own, full of pride for his only daughter. I didn’t know what to say or how to react. Was it meant to be a happy reunion or was I dreaming?
“Father … I … “
“You have accepted your fate. Your destiny has just begun,” he said, not moving towards me or stretching his arms our for a long awaited embrace.

RELEASE BLITZ ~ Manic Monday, an all-new hilarious and romantic standalone from Piper Rayne, is LIVE!


PRManicMondayBookCover5x8_MEDIUMManic Monday, an all-new hilarious and romantic standalone from Piper Rayne, is LIVE!

The perfect man for me is a blood-sucking lawyer. #pfftwhatever

Been there.

Done that.

Burned the T-shirt.

I didn’t swear off all men after my divorce, but I sure as hell swore off anyone remotely like my ex. On the top of that list? Attorneys. Everyone knows they can’t be trusted.

Now that I’m back in Chicago, my focus is my daughter, my mom and me. I haven’t given up on finding my happily-ever-after, it’s just on hold—indefinitely.

Then I see Reed Warner again, and he weasels his way into every part of my life, not willing to take no for an answer.

In spite of my better judgment I can’t stop thinking about the way his designer suits fit his muscular frame, or the way his blue eyes seem to eat me up with every glance.

You know when you’re on a diet and even hummus seems irresistible? Reed is like the equivalent of chocolate éclair and my willpower is fading fast.

The problem? Not only is he a lawyer…

He was the best man at my wedding.

 Manic Monday (Charity Case Book 1)Manic Monday by Piper Rayne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars!

Gosh I just love Piper Rayne books. I also love how they are all interconnected in some way but complete standalones. For me this makes a character connection stronger.

Manic Monday was so good. If you’ve read Piper Rayne’s Dirty Truth Series, then you already know Victoria. I adored her from the start and was thrilled to learn she was getting her own story. Victoria is a strong, independent heroine. She is not a push over and isn’t afraid to speak her mind. This is trait of hers that she unfortunately learned the hard way.

All thanks to an a**hole of an ex-husband.

Reed was so perfect. I loved him from the very minute he appeared. He was so smooth and sexy. As well as attentive and romantic. When he sees Victoria, all bets are off. Reed will do anything to make her his. Of course there are some obstacles that get in his way, the biggest being Victoria herself.

I really enjoyed how their relationship played out. I felt their connection. It was strong and believable. This book also has a good amount of secondary characters that added more depth and entertainment to this story.

I don’t want to say too much more because this book is not too long and the pace is nice and steady. You can probably read it in a few hours without interruptions. I read it in one sitting while my kids were in school, so happy to not have to deal with interruptions.

I absolutely recommend this book. You should check out all Piper Rayne books. They are some of my favorites. This author duo has never let me down.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
