February Reviews

The Kiss by M. Robinson: Released February 16th

Available in Kindle Unlimited on Amazon

What happens when you make a pact with your boys to stay single and never fall in love?

Well, you get the Playboy Pact.

We were friends, she and I.
Best friends.
It was easy.
Simple.
Comfortable.
That was our dynamic.
We had a system.
An understanding.
An unspoken arrangement.

We were there for each other through thick and thin. We had an unbreakable bond. Nobody understood our friendship. Because a guy and a girl couldn’t just be best friends without emotions getting involved, right?

Without noticing, everything shifted, and I was experiencing all these new feelings…

Jealousy.
Possessiveness.
She’s mine.

Yeah…

For the first time in my life, Mila wasn’t merely a girl I trusted and hung out with on a regular basis.

She had become…
…the woman I was in love with.

The Cask by Danielle Allen: Released February 19th

Available in Kindle Unlimited on Amazon

I endured the thousand injuries of Omari Fortune as best I could. But when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge.

The good-looking businessman knew exactly what he did. And if he thought those broad shoulders and sexy lips were going to smooth things over, he was mistaken. If he thought flirting was going to change things, he was incorrect. If he thought asking me on a date was going to make things right, he was dead wrong.

But his advances gave me an idea.

They say keep your friends close and your enemies closer. And when you want revenge, it’s best that your enemy doesn’t know he’s your enemy. But how close is too close?

If they’re not careful, this marriage could turn into a love story.

Twist of Fate by Tia Louise: Releasing February 22nd

Available in Kindle Unlimited on Amazon

To be “just friends” with a guy, you’ve got to follow The Rules:
Don’t touch him unnecessarily.
Don’t share your intimate dreams with him (even if he asks).
Don’t kiss him, and definitely don’t sleep with him.

Scout Dunne and I have been “just friends” since childhood.
He’s everything you could want—sexy, charming, confident—every girl’s wet dream.
Until we broke The Rules.

We broke them in the ocean, in my aunt’s bathroom, in my bed…
It was the hottest week of my life.
I’m one of the few people who knows the first-round NFL draft pick wants more than a life of sports.
Because we’re friends, right?
Not anymore.

Now he’s gone, and I’m trying to get my career back on track.
Mamma said a guy would never put your dreams ahead of his.
But the twist of fate?
It’s something you never see coming.

Cupid’s Truce by Britni Hill: Released February 12th

Available on Amazon B&N Kobo iBooks

Hannah Simone was happy running her little slice of heaven, otherwise known as a bookstore. Lost Between the Pages was starting the year off right with a new venture, a cozy little cocoa cart that would set them apart from all the other book retailers around. She’s determined to ignore all the pity her friends and family are throwing her way. Why? Because her ex got engaged. Big deal. She’s over him.

When the town plans a food truck festival on the same day as the cocoa cart launch, she lets it go. It’s only one day, after all. Until it’s not.

It’s every day.

Who better to take out her frustration on than him?

Jayden Crawford is only trying to help his family while his Uncle recovers from surgery. Running D’s Foodie Affair, their food truck, for a short time seems easy enough. He loves to cook, and the laid-back feel of the food truck suits him better than the five-star kitchen he came from.

He didn’t anticipate the beautiful spitfire with gunmetal gray hair who runs the bookstore he parks in front of. She’s full of attitude and it’s directed right at him. He can’t help but be amused. Which seems to set her off even more.

When a freak February ice storm hits their small town, they’re stuck together. Can Cupid call a truce between them?

Love at First Fight by Carrie Aarons: Released September 16, 2020

Available in Kindle Unlimited on Amazon

This summer was supposed to be spent lounging on the beach, madly in love with my boyfriend.
Until he decided to move to Singapore, and break up with me an hour before his plane left.
Now I’m stuck in a Hamptons house share with six of his closest pals, including his best friend … who despises me.

Since the moment Smith Redfield laid eyes on me, he’s hated my guts. I’m serious, I think the raven-haired restaurateur gets physically sick just being in my presence. And he’s never been shy about hiding that fact.

There was the time he cackled when I landed face first in a pile of Manhattan trash bags. Or the night I tried to throw my ex-boyfriend a surprise party, and Smith had strippers crash the bash. Or maybe it was New Year’s Eve, when he got in my face and called me a sheltered goody two-shoes who wouldn’t know passion if it smacked me in the lips.

He’s rooming right next door for the summer months, and I don’t think more animosity could exist than in the hallway of our vacation rental. As if I wasn’t already sporting a bruised ego and broken heart from the way his best friend left me.

But the more midnight run-ins we have, the more I can’t help but think about the way his mouth would feel against mine. With each heavy-eyed glance over the dinner table, I’m starting to wonder if the damaged alpha male doesn’t harbor more than just loathing towards me.

After all, they say hate is the closest emotion to love.
And with the way we’re skating that thin line, it’s bound to burn this whole house down.

Love or Lust by Jeannette Winters: Released February 5th

Available in Kindle Unlimited on Amazon

Dear Love Vixen:
I’m frustrated, both mentally and physically. I’ve been crushing on this guy since I was a teenager. Back then we had a major roadblock, namely my father, who was also his coach. How Jack filled out that Speedo distracted me but back then dating was a no-no because his focus needed to be on winning the gold. But the Olympics are over and guess who show’s back in town looking for a job?
Of course I hire him. What was I thinking? I’m not sadist, but this is pure torture. To make it even worse, Jack knows damn well the effect he has on me. Again, the rules are clear, no fraternization between employees. I followed them once, and I lost him. If I break them now, I could lose my job. Of course spending hours daydreaming about running my hands over every inch of his gorgeous Olympic Gold body isn’t doing much for the quality of my work either.
Do I fire him or act on every one of the fantasies I’ve ever had about him? I’ve got to know, is this lust or love?
Risky business

Dear Risky,
Oh sweetie, you had me at Speedo.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but work place romances rarely work. Those rules are there for a reason. Maybe you need to tighten up that resume. It sounds to me like you’ve been training for this chance for years. I’d say go for the gold.
Good luck, hon!
The Love Vixen

Dashing by Kylie Gilmore: Released February 9th

Available on Amazon Google iBooks Kobo B&N

Adam
True or false? Men and women can’t be friends. I used to say true, until I met Kayla.

Yes, she’s a goddess, but it’s completely platonic. So when she asks me to pose as her fiancé at a party, I’m all in. Especially since her sleazeball ex will be there. Can you believe this weasel dumped her at the altar? I’ve got your back, Kayla. What are friends for?

But now I’m worried I played the part too well because we’re heading home, and she makes a confession: she’s tired of saving herself for marriage and wants me to be her first. Her first!

I can’t go there. The woman has committed relationship written all over her, something I’m never doing again for good reason.

Except when I tell her no, she starts considering other candidates. I can’t let her be with some random guy! I can’t cross the line either. She doesn’t know what she’s asking! She doesn’t know what she’s doing! Someone has to stop her.

Kayla
Only Adam will do.

This romantic comedy stands alone with a swoonworthy happy-ever-after! No cliffhangers.
