BLURB:

My code name is Aries. The stars say I'm aggressive, dominant, first in line to lead.

The stars aren't wrong. 

Zodiac Tactical is my company. It's run by those I've chosen for their skills and ability to outmaneuver adversaries. We guard, protect, rescue...assist on the side of the angels.

We eliminate the threat when nobody else can.

My pastime of putting bad guys out of business has created powerful enemies, but I've always made sure there was nothing in my life I couldn't live without.

Until now. Until her.

She's not a warrior, she's an artist. She sees colors everywhere and greets the world—and me—with a smile. I knew I shouldn't come near her from the beginning, but she's everything I've never been able to be.

And now a monster has taken her, caged her, to get even with me.

My code name is Aries. And I will burn the world to the ground to get her back.

REVIEW:

This is one of my top reads for 2021, Janie Crouch is a fantastic writer for romance and suspense, I was literally squeezing my kindle because the details were so descriptive that I felt I was in these intense situation with these wonderful characters. If you haven't read her Linear Tactical series, I recommend to add it to your must read list. Many of the characters in this series were introduced in the prior, however if you haven't, I promise you wont feel lost.

Code Name: Aries follows Ian DeRose, owner of Zodiac Tactical, a group of individual who protect, rescue and help in dangerous situations where ever they are needed. But Ian is on a mission to take down a group of dangerous people known as the Mosaic, which he has ties to from his past, when his brother controlled the group. Now they are even more dangerous, when one of their own has gone missing and then the one woman who find her way into Ian's heart is now a target. Wavy the sister to two of Linear Tactical workers is an artistic and bold woman. She catches Ian's eye and thrust into a very dangerous world.

As always with Crouch's stories the suspense is so good, intense and hear stopping. Wavy is a female lead that is easy to connect too but put through the ringer. My heart broke for her, I felt out of all the female leads in the prior series, she was put through the most intense storyline. She is my favorite not only for being so down to earth but just so real. Ian is an intense and very dominate needs to be in control person. A workaholic that is so stuck in his determination to stop Mosaic he is missing things around him. He gets a wake up call with Wavy.

Overall this was a fantastic beginning to this new suspense romance series by Crouch, she is my go to for this genre and I absolutely can't wait to see what she has in store for Sarge and they mysterious Bronwyn.

{Release Blitz} Crossing The Line by Jessica Prince

Title: Crossing The Line
Author: Jessica Prince
Series: Whitecap


Contemporary Romance; Small Town Romance; Single Mom Romance





Some lines are meant to be crossed.

Trent Montgomery knew all about loyalty and responsibility. Tracking down his friend’s long-lost sister and making sure she was safe was just another job, a favor from someone he cared about. He wasn’t supposed to get attached. But when he started to fall for the woman who had been hiding from the world, things got a lot more complicated than he ever expected.

Cheyanne Knightly knew all about living in fear. The life she’d made for her and her daughter was as stable as a house of cards. One stiff breeze could send her whole world crumbling. But when a new guy blew into her small town, stirring up Whitecap’s rumor mill, she found herself drawn to him in a way she never expected.

Lies were told. Secrets were uncovered. Lines were crossed. When the truth finally came out, Trent had to find a way to protect the woman who stole his heart while he tried to earn her trust back.

 

**The Whitecap series is a brand new series of interconnected, standalone, small town romances.**

“Monica said the dude was ogling you like you were a three-course meal and he hadn’t eaten in a month.”

“Like I said, she exaggerated.”

Right?

Nope, I silently screamed to myself. I wasn’t going to start questioning it because it didn’t matter. Not at all.

She looked at me, her expression pinched with skepticism. “Was she also exaggerating when she said she thought you’d stroked out for a minute and lost the power of speech when he came up and introduced himself to you?”

I snorted and took a gulp of my margarita, smiling as I admitted, “No, she might have been spot-on with that one.”

Luna’s head fell back on a laugh. “At least you’re willing to own it.”

“It’s not my fault! There isn’t a woman on the planet who could help it,” I exclaimed. “I mean, the dude had dimples, for Christ’s sake. Dimples.”





Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

BLURB: 

“I had to sneeze.”

I should’ve taken her insurance information and driven off like any reasonable CEO with places to be would.

She crashed into my car, for heaven’s sake. Because she had to sneeze.

What did I do? I didn’t get in my car and drive away, if that’s what you’re thinking.

Nope. I stuck around. I could suggest I stayed because she needed help, but the truth? She was really, really hot.

We became fast friends. Then friends with benefits. Before I knew it, we were involved in an illicit office romance that had me fumbling through a drawerful of panties to get a Post-It.

It was supposed to be easy—a fling, if you will. A dashing millionaire hero (*adjusts tie*) and a beautiful (stubborn, frustratingly independent, hell-on-wheels) damsel in distress. (Don’t tell her I said that.)

It wasn’t supposed to be forever, but we did want a happy ending. (Pun intended.) We could’ve made it work, too.

But one of us overcomplicated things with the L-word. And the other? They omitted a truth that changed everything.


REVIEW:

I'm such a fan of Adriana Locke's Landry family series, so I highly recommend her Mason Family series. The great family dynamic and of course drama, sibling humor at its best and of course the romance is off the charts!

Relentless is the 4th book in the Mason family series, following Oliver Mason, the CEO or should I say Co-CEO of Mason Limited. The Mason men are falling left and right for the right woman but Oliver has been hurt in the fast by someone he thought he was going to marry. Then Shaye runs into him, in the literal sense as her car hits his. The sparks fly but Shaye is avoiding any kind of guy at the moment due to her past husbands betrayal and other issues with him. But they two were meant to meet and when Shaye walks into a job interview she is surprised to see the man she turned away from the small car accident, Oliver.

I love office romances and Shaye and Oliver have this instant connection right off. Even though they try and keep it professional, each day is becoming more and more difficult. Along with the fact both have been burned pretty harshly in the past. Oliver is dealing with his dad acting strangely, problems with some of the jobs they have going on in the company, along with his brothers being their normal pain in the butt. While Shaye is trying to keep herself from drowning in debt, working two jobs and avoiding the attraction between her boss and her.

I adored this book, its my favorite in the series so far, I loved the development and drama on the family side. Showing that no family no matter how they look are perfect. That both leads are trying to move on from their scared pasts and just overall the steamy moments that were just fire! Locke knows her readers and knows how much we love this family. I'm really wanting Wade's book like yesterday now, this grump needs someone to add some excitement to his life.

BLURB:

No promises. No expectations. No names. That's what Emmett Stone agreed to with the woman who caught his eye two months ago. After years of drama following the end of the Tin Gypsy Motorcycle Club, a no-strings fling with a mystery woman is exactly what he needs. Except as they find themselves together more and more, it's impossible for him to keep his feelings at bay. She's clever and sassy. She's gracious and kind. She loves riding on the back of his bike every Saturday afternoon and lazing in his bed every Sunday morning. She's the perfect woman.

Except she's Nova Talbot, the daughter of his archenemy--the man who murdered his father.

Her identity will cost her the man who's captured her heart unless she can convince Emmett her feelings are true.

Before he learns the reason she proposed their fling in the first place.

REVIEW:

The last book in the Tin Gypsy goes out with a bang, this is Emmett's story and I knew it was going to have all the feels in it, because well... it's Emmett. There is so much to say about this series, it was a hug suspenseful, emotional roller coaster, but it was masterfully done by Perry, each character had so much depth and such a wonderful crafted story, the readers easily could connect to each couple.

Tin Queen follows Nova Talbot, the daughter of the enemy motorcycle club The Warriors. She is on a mission, she wants revenge for her father and for her brother who was killed by the Tin Gypsy MC. Her family is broken and she wants the Tin Gypsy's to feel the same way, especially Emmett, whose father took her brothers life. But there is a lot of secrets, a lot of misunderstandings and both Emmett and Nova come face to face with that face that sometimes the heart is stronger than revenge.

Nova is one of the most complicated and I'd say meanest females introduced in the series. She is angry and she has reason to be. Her father has told her a lot about the Tin Gypsy's and her devotion to him is heartbreaking. Her family has always hidden who they are, hidden away from the club due to dangers, but is that the truth? Nova goes on a journey and Emmett takes her by surprise, she gets close to him and the secrets that have haunted both of them for so long. Emmett broke my heart, he has been put through the ringer, losing his father effected him deeply, but it has also effected his willingness to open up to people. He loves his mother deeply but see the darkness that his father left behind in her. But with Nova something awakens that gives him a peek into the possibility of happiness.

Overall this was the most emotional of the stories in this series. I really didn't know how to this going to unfold, I held my breathe, not sure if these two could survive or if any of the Tin Gypsy's were going to survive after everything. The romance side is passionate, intense and heartbreaking, both Nova and Emmett didn't understand the part of them they were missing until they met each other and that makes it even harder because of who Nova is. Perry did an excellent job with the suspense and how everything unfolded. What a way to end a fantastic series.

{Release Blitz: Review} There with You by Samantha Young

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
GENRE: Contemporary Romance 
THEME: Boss/Employee
There with You (Adair Family, #2)
There with You (Adair Family, #2)
by Samantha Young

BLURB:

For Regan Penhaligon, there's no better place to run to than the exclusive Ardnoch Estate in the remote Scottish Highlands. Her impulsive behavior has finally caught up with her and Regan's visit with her sister, Robyn, is an opportunity to hide from someone who has grown dangerously obsessed with her.

Determined to make amends for her mistakes, Regan plans to repair her relationship with Robyn by staying close. And when an offer of help comes from Thane Adair, Regan gratefully accepts.

Widower, Thane, needs a new nanny housekeeper for his two young children and when they bond with Regan Penhaligon, he offers her the job. But as the weeks pass and the complex American reveals who she really is, Thane struggles with his growing attraction to her.

Regan never expected to feel so intensely for Thane, but she can't deny her passion for him or her love for his children. When someone from Thane's past threatens his family, Regan wants to be his pillar of support. However, his continued inability to trust her might just destroy their chance at future happiness... and the person who drove Regan to Ardnoch might snuff out her chance for any future at all.


REVIEW:

The second book in the Adair Family series is just as fantastic and them some of the first book. There with You follows Regan, the sister of Robyn from the first book. She has hit a point in her life where she wants to find her place, her purpose, fix what is broken between her and her sister and show people that she isn't what her mother has always made everyone believe.

There with You gutted me in so many ways, Regan broke my heart, I felt for this woman who has been made out to be a wild careless woman. She and her sister Robin make amends, especially after Robyn learns about why her sister wasn't there when she was shot and in the hospital. I loved all the moments with the sisters, they have the unbreakable bond and understanding for each other and it was sad to see their mother just didn't get either of these amazing women.

Regan comes to Scotland to be with her sister and work on their relationship. But she also feels a calling to this small town, there is something special here and even more so when she becomes the nanny for her sisters new brother in law Thane. Thanes children are two adorable and serious wise kids, they lost their mother young and grow this wonderful bond with Regan. They also bring to light Regan's talents, she is a wonderful teacher and care taker. Regan and Thane however cant deny the attraction towards each other and they, but Thane has trust issues and something from his past that wont go away.

Overall this was a suspenseful and passionate story, Regan and Thane have the hottest chemistry. I loved Thanes children, they brought something special to the story and were adorable! Robyn and Lachlan are of course back and the readers will be happy to know we get more on how their relationship is doing. I cant wait to see which Adair is next in this series, I'm really rooting for Arrochar, I want to know more about her and her relationship with her brothers.

BLURB:

Two friends have disappeared playing Starfighter Training Academy. No one cares because it's just a game. Right?

My BFFs went missing after beating the hottest new multi-player game on the planet, Starfighter Training Academy. They won. They celebrated. They vanished. So what's the girl left behind supposed to do? 

Beat the damn game, that's what. Find out the truth, even if that includes being recruited to fight in an alien war, lusting after the hottest alien I've ever seen, and marching into a battle there's little chance of winning.

I will find my friends. I will learn what the heck is going on. And I will kiss the alien hunk I've been staring at for weeks.

REVIEW:

The third book in the Starfighter Training Academy, brings readers to the final trio of friends who are brought into the battle against Queen Raya and the Dark Fleet. Just like the previous, Lily thought she was playing a video game but it was actually a recruiting game to help fight an evil Queen in space.

Lily is a no nonsense woman, when Darius comes for her he is taken back she is already waiting for him. Mia from the previous book sent lily a message so she is ready. In the Academy "game" Lily was a force, she control Titan and as soon and she and Darius get to the home base they are thrown right into action. What was interesting was that Mia and Jamie from the prior books, the woman were very into their mate/partner. Lily is very closed off and a bit cold, it took a bit longer for me to connect with her because of her persona.

Darius is taken back by Lily, she is not what he expected but 100% dedicated to protecting her and being by her side. He also has some secrets which cause Lily and him to have a lot of disagreements. But I adored him, his actions and protectiveness spoke a lot about what he's been through and who he is.

In the end the battle scenes were fantastic, the way this duo was thrown into the thick of things and pretty much put in life or death situations, and kept their cool, spoke volumes on how great of a team they are.

When the series started it introduced the trio of ladies, but there are more people on each that have played this same "game" as these three so I'm hoping for new duos to come and support this kick butt team and finally defeat Queen Raya.
