The Prospect and the
President’s daughter finally get their HEA…..
Remington “Remy” Sawyer

For most of my life I’ve been the person who lived with the hand he was dealt.
Not much in my life have I had a say in. Birthed by parents I don’t talk to, I
was raised by the only person who ever cared for me – my brother, Cash. Under
his guidance, I’ve become the person I am today.

Productive member of society, and patched brother in the Heaven Hill MC.

I don’t want for anything, other than Tatum Walker.

We had a shot, and we both screwed it up……massively.

Tatum “Tate” Walker

Being the daughter of the President of the Heaven Hill MC is a burden, but one
I’ll face every day with pride. It’s hard for me to know what people like me
for. Is it my personality, my looks, or are they trying to get close to the
Club? There’s one person I’ve never doubted.

Remington Sawyer.

A year ago we had one night of almost passion – that ended with me walking away
in tears – and him walking away in anger.


Some time away from each other has given us perspective.
Now, instead of the storm of chaos that was our one attempt at a relationship,
we’re both ready for calm.

And nothing, they say, is as calm – as the eye of a Hurricane.

Review

The second Heaven Hills MC generation starts with this book where Tatum and Remy try to sort out their friendship and whether or not their relationship goes deeper.

This is a moderately paced book with a light, easy to read feel about it. The old characters are still in this story, however, the younger generation is the focus, not just for Remington and Tatum.

Tatum is a feisty, sassy young woman who is starting to mature. Remy is in his late twenties and is still struggling with some past demons, he is also a quiet achiever. Both characters are likeable and entertaining. Abbie, as a secondary character, holds promise for a future book…I hope. She balances Tatum in their friendship and is an honest, down to earth person with a secret she’s keeping mum about!

There are a little intrigue and suspense, especially towards the end, however, a bit more would have made the storyline meatier, something to really get involved in other than the lead characters unsettled relationship.

A sweet love story that leaves you feeling good.

Donna’s Review of The Manny by Piper Rayne

by Piper Rayne
Genres: Romantic Comedy
Title: The Manny
Series: Dirty Truth #1
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: October 19, 2017

 

Secrets and lies are a killer way to start any partnership—especially a horizontal one.

 


 

Now, I’m a glass half full kinda of guy, so, after the ‘you’re fired’ speech was directed at me, I figure now’s the time to be the screenwriter I came to sunny California to be. Unfortunately, there are about as many people trying to sell a script in L.A. as there are vegans in the pacific northwest. 

 


 

But lucky for me, a few weeks ago my agent found an investor for my script. Hooray, all my problems are solved! NOT.

Because the investor will only agree to fund my film if I use one specific actress. And that one specific actress? Well of course, it just has to be the same actress I screwed over only months before. But she doesn’t need to know about that one tiny detail, does she? All that matters is getting her to agree to do the film and I’ll do whatever it takes. We can leave the past, in the past, right?

I thought my charm would win her over. Never would I have been prepared for the terms she laid out on the table.

She needed a nanny.
I needed a lead actress.
Somehow I became The Manny.

I absolutely loved this story and I am loving the writing style of Piper Rayne and just the way they make you feel the story like it’s believable and real. I haven’t read a bad story by this duo yet. And I have read almost all they have to offer.

This story is brilliant and you just know that with secrets there will inevitably be trouble. But sometimes you just can’t win when it comes to keeping your feelings guarded. Vance is amazing in this book and the friendship he has with Leo and Jagger is true a bromance if ever I read one. But the way he is with Layla and especially her children Payne and Via was just amazing and made you swoon. That is what won my heart with this book.

Layla is brilliant a no-nonsense taking single parent, that knows how to looks after herself and her own. Until Payne scares all the help away. Vance needed an actress and Layla needed help. The Manny was born from this and it’s was fantastic.

This book is a huge recommendation from me and so is all other works by Piper Rayne.

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two established authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?

We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon holed into a specific outline. We wanted to give readers a story without them assuming how the story will flow. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it.
What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.

Review

Lachlan Mount is one sexy, dark badass kingpin of the underworld… he’s a man you don’t want on your radar; feisty family business owner Keira Kilgore found that out the hard way!! Their chemistry is red hot, albeit very dangerous for Keira as he gets into her head and manipulates her body and mind far beyond her control… this book was as intriguing as it was funny; the inner monologue of Keira as she navigated her life with the ruthless Lachlan Mount in it kept me highly entertained from the first page until the surprising ending! I cannot wait to see how this saga continues; I’m looking forward to seeing how far Meghan will push this fabulous storyline.

Review

I absolutely loved this great, sexy and extremely funny read. That had me turning pages and laughing out loud one quick-witted come back after the other. This book is a story that runs a long the side of Tempt the Boss and reading the scenarios from a different point was great.

The characters are brilliant and they fall for each other hard and fast. Noah was you typical man whore and there was no stopping him until he met, smooth and zen as hell woman whore, Kayleigh. She plays Noah at his own game and “Breaks his penis”. But they definitely play the game that they both win. It’s a great cat and mouse story.

This book is a huge recommendation from me, giving you a light read that will leave you smiling from ear to ear.

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Leo

I visit Jennifer every evening at the diner; she seems to like the attention, and I could use the distraction. I make sure to turn up just before her shift ends, and she gives me a ride home every night. The first night she came over we ended up talking for hours. My mouth hurt by the end, every sense on high alert. I was a gentleman. I didn’t lay a hand on her again, not after she started to talk. She’s in trouble. A lot of trouble. I think it eased her mind to be able to confess to somebody who pretty much wrote the book on trouble in this town.
I mean, there’s not a thing I can do to help the girl. Not unless she tells me who got her into this mess in the first place. “That’s the problem with men,” she said to me when I urged her to give me the name of the guy blackmailing her. “They always jump straight to problem-solving. Men always want to fix everybody.”
“You don’t want to be fixed?” I’d asked her.
“I can fix myself,” she’d replied. “I just need somebody to understand.”
I don’t understand. Her predicament is something I’ve never experienced. But I can listen. I listen to her talk as she drives me home in her shiny new car every night, and it makes me feel less of a fuck-up. I mean, she hasn’t killed anyone. But she’s planning to. And that’s why we’ve found each other. I am a killer and she is ready to spill blood. She is a welcome distraction from my sins, and I am a makeshift altar for her to lay her own sins upon. Because when I’m with Jennifer, I don’t think about Cassie Carlino. I don’t think of Karen Brainard. And, most especially, I don’t think of Teresa King and the way she burned beside me in that car.
* * *
The night Jennifer Thomas disappears is like all the rest. I go to the diner. Order nachos and a Coke. I’m surprised Jennifer is working. It’s Thanksgiving, and the place is deserted. Even Amanda is nowhere to be seen.
“Working on Thanksgiving?” I ask Jennifer, as she slides my food in front of me. She shrugs, that glitter lipgloss catching the light as she moves. “It’s just another day, isn’t it?”
I nod.
“Besides,” she says, “It pisses my dad off. I asked for this shift.”
At ten, I help her to turn out all the lights. I wait beside her as she locks the front doors of the diner, feeling vaguely worried about the fact that somebody left a sixteen year old cheerleader alone to lock up this late at night. I note the lack of video surveillance, the remote location, the fact that everyone is tucked safely inside their houses while Jennifer is alone with a convicted criminal in the dead of night.
Jennifer offers me a ride home, which I accept. Except, instead of driving me straight home like she has done for the past six nights in a row, Jennifer pulls her Range Rover off the road into an uncleared section of pine trees that tower over us. The track is narrow and winding and she doesn’t answer me when I ask her where she’s taking us.
She stops in a small clearing and cuts the lights. The engine is still running. Bits of snow fall outside, slow and bloated in their trajectory toward the ground. Jennifer’s hands are small as they grip the steering wheel; her eyes lit up by the red illumination of the dashboard, making her look almost demonic.
“What are we doing here?” I ask her again.
“I don’t want to go home,” she says staring straight ahead.
“Fair enough,” I reply. I watch her as she struggles to find words. She squirms in her heated leather seat, her nails shiny and perfect, her shoulders sagging under the weight of something I cannot see.
“Do you think I’m pretty?” she asks me in a tiny voice, and she sounds so mouse-like and weak that I almost laugh.
“Do I think you’re pretty?” I echo, feeling a smirk cut its way across my face. “Jennifer, you’re so pretty I could die just from looking at you.”
She rolls her eyes. “You think I’m stupid. You’re just here because you feel sorry for me, Leo.”
I shake my head. “I don’t think you’re stupid. And I’m not here because I feel sorry for you.”
She swallows thickly; I can see the pulse beat nervously in her throat. “Then why are you here?”
“Well, I guess I’m here right now because you just drove us off the road and into the woods.”
“You know what I mean.”
Do, I, though? I sigh. “Because you’re the only person in this town worth talking to who will even look at me.”
She bites her lip and I have the sudden, piercing urge inside my skull to wrap my hands around her throat and drag her onto my lap. That’s some messed up shit. She’s sixteen. Six. TEEN. I’m repeating the number in my head over and over, willing my dick to settle down. I can feel the throb of wanting her in my cock, in the thunderous rush of blood that makes my heart hit my ribcage like the firing of a gun, bang, bang, bang. My need eclipses my rationality. So what if she’s sixteen? She drove into this fucking clearing and licked her lips and asked me if I thought she was pretty.
“Why have you been back to the diner every single night, just as I’m about to get off shift?”
“Umm,” I try. “It’s the only decent place in town?”
She narrows her eyes at me and there’s a fire inside her pupils; it might be below freezing outside, but it’s a billion degrees in here. We’re already fogging up the windows with our breath, and I haven’t even laid a finger on her.
“Liar,” she says. “I want the real reason.”
You’re about to get the real reason, sweetheart. I grip the armrest. I grip it so hard my fingernails ache.
“I’m here because I’m a bad guy, Jennifer.”
“And?”
“Because you’re so pretty I can’t think about anybody else. Because I want to do things to you… that would probably frighten you. Things that might hurt you.”
Her cheeks are flush; her breathing quickens. I haven’t even touched her, and she’s already excited. Or scared. Or both. I want to reach between her thighs and see if it’s lust I’m reading on her face.
“What kinds of things?” she asks.
I cover my face with my hands.  
“What kinds of things?” she repeats, a hand on my shoulder. I let my hands fall into my lap and fix my stare on this girl who should be home with her family, not out here in the dark in the woods and snow with a criminal. I watch in awe as she slides her seat back and reaches her hands up underneath her skirt, tugging a pair of panties down her legs and unhooking them from her heels. She can’t look at me as she hands me a pair of baby blue silk panties with a bow on the front. I grip the underwear in my fist so tight I could tear it to shreds with a single pull, but I don’t rip it. I find the damp spot of arousal in the center of the material and bring it up to my face. I close my eyes. I breathe Jennifer in.
I shouldn’t be here. Not with her. Not like this. I will get out of the car, I decide. I will walk home. I will not touch this girl.
But then, “I promise I won’t tell anyone,” she whispers.
Fuck.
I grab her. I drown her shock out with my mouth. I squeeze her slender neck with my prison-rough palms. I keep my promise and I hurt Jennifer Thomas until I’m sated.
It’s only after when I’m looking at the blank expression on her face, the odd tilt of her neck, the bruises blossoming on her spread thighs, that I understand what I have done.
By then, it’s too late.
The night Jennifer Thomas disappears is like all the rest.
Apart from the way it ends.

The pain I want to save her from.
Somehow, I will find a way to get through to her.
 
Come hell or high water, she will be mine.

 

 

 



 

My love of MC is coming back… this book was everything I love in an MC read, it was dark, gritty with fiercely loyal MC members who protect their club with everything they have and are! Nothing comes between a member and the club and that was true for Ratchet until Ricca came along! A broken young lady with a tragic past, Ratchet, also had a tough and tragic upbringing, but he was her saviour the one person who could get close enough to be the light in her darkness; together they could conquer anything.. that is if they could trust in each other and their love! Highly recommend this series to all lovers of darker MC books; I look forward to reading what Avelyn comes up with next for the Heaven’s Rejects MC… I’m sure it’s going to be a doozy!!
Reviewed by Nat

Hearing Ricca’s perspective of events, as well as parts of her life, answers many questions from the previous books in this series. This new life pathway for Ricca is full of potholes but also real moments of joy.

Ricca discovers she has a responsibility she relishes in accepting if she is allowed. By running back to her hometown many past concepts and ideas about her are still felt deeply. Ratchet is not happy to learn Ricca has done a runner with no forwarding address or reason for her actions. Luckily for Ricca, Ratchet never gives up easily!

The story has a bit of everything in it from romance and hot intimacy to suspense and action. The humour running throughout the story is upbeat and really enjoyable. The last ten percent of the book is even more exciting and enlightening!

One of my favourite lines from the story belongs to Ratchet when he thinks…
‘All I wanted was a chance to prove to her that even though my monsters still lingered, that they would play nice with hers.’

Ricca describing Ratchet…
‘Much like a priceless gemstone, he is multi-faceted.’
This is spot on and descriptions like these make it easier for the reader to understand each character more fully.

This fast-paced story is super easy to read but I do advise you read the other three books first.

“You’re
okay. They’re dead and can’t hurt you anymore,” I mumble and repeat in some
stupid fucking mantra to keep the memories at bay. Every morning starts like
this. Sure, maybe I did need go back to my victim group counseling sessions,
but I knew the
Kumbaya mentality they used couldn’t help me. The demons in my head
were of my own creation, and they were never just going to go away by telling
others who thought they were like me about them. I couldn’t forgive the men for
the things that they did to my body and even with their deaths, my mind would
never be able to see the world the same way. They took the last shred of my innocence
out in that desert, and it was something that I was never going to be able to
get back, even if I had ruby red slippers, clicked my heels, and said it three
times.

 

 


Life isn’t a fucking fairy tale. And
no matter how hard I hoped he would be, Ratchet was definitely not Prince
Charming. The knight in shining armor isn’t real, and
he was never going to ride a horse to my tower of terror.

Connor

I owe everything to Levi. Everything. So when I fell for his girl, I did the only thing a good mate would do. I left. Ran. Six years in that hell hole trying to forget, trying to let them live and love each other. But I couldn’t stay away any longer.

And now I’m realising it wasn’t just her I’d fallen for.

Levi

He left us—spent years defending our country. He’s far more honourable than me. While I was living in paradise, happy, and in love with my gorgeous girl, he’s been facing horrors I can’t even imagine. It nearly broke me knowing he was there, and Katy and I were here.

Twenty years we’ve known each other. I’ve grown a lot in those years. But one thing hasn’t changed from the first day we met: we’re still inseparable.

Now I’m beginning to understand how, in another life, we could have been so much more.

Katy

Levi’s the love of my life, my soulmate. And life is good. We’re so damn lucky… blessed to have found each other. But there’s a “but”. There always is.

We’ve spent six years waiting, in limbo. Connor was fighting to make the world a better place, and we were incomplete without him. When he left, he took a piece of my heart.

Now he’s back.

Two’s company but three is even hotter!! Friends since they were kids, Connor and Levi were in love with the same girl… Connor left to join the army and returned years later to find that home is definitely where the heart is; and his heart was with his two best friends Levi and Katy. The chemistry between all three is electric; there’s is a slow burn that builds and builds… the angst and anguish is felt by all three of them at different times, all wanting the same thing but no-one is brave enough to make the first move!! Damn this story was hot, hot, hot… with tear jerking moments and a whole lot of love and laughter in the mix! A must read for all readers of ménage, love, angst and acceptance!! Ann you have done it again, this was a beautiful book and the start of a fabulous series I have no doubt xx

Reviewed by Nat

This author just keeps producing quality writing and blowing reader’s minds!

Connor left Katy and Levi, his best friends, due to being in love with Katy even knowing that Levi and Katy were a solid couple. Feeling despondent, he enlisted and spent most of his six years away fighting overseas. After being medically discharged he returns home, to his best friends but things are different and difficult for them all.

The overwhelming love these three characters have for each other is truly beautiful. The fears they face are very real and faced by many people today. Each character is described so well you actually feel like you know them, I especially felt I needed a trip to Katy’s bakery!

There are a variety of emotions experienced throughout the story, as you can imagine not all are positive. The confusion, heart brake and fear grip you however the joy and excitement in the story lifts you up incredibly. I have to admit that there is one part later in the story where I felt like smacking a couple of particularly narrow minded characters!

Above all else this is a love story, pure and..well maybe not so simple but guaranteed to leave you feeling fantastic!

Where do I begin to describe this book and just I feel about it? I really don’t know and I was a little unsure about some of the content as I read it but I read it none the less and I am glad that I did. The creative mind of Tillie Cole is one that will have you completely baffled and wondering what, when and how the hell she comes up with these stories. I can truly say that I am glad that she writes these thoughts and limit provoking books as I am sure the world would be a little duller without her kind of dark.

This book as I said will provoke you, make you feel things that you have never felt before and caused a deep rage that you find hard to control.  I was angry at the world as I read this book. I was angry for the people in this story but also because I know that the world hides this stuff on a daily basis in plain sight but we just don’t see it for looking.

This story is Amazing, twisted and messed up but it’s a book that will stay with me for a long time to come and one that will see me looking at the world a little differently. After reading this book I will be a little less likely to turn a blind eye to a lot more.

This is a huge recommendation from me but be warned it not for the faint of heart or for those that have triggers. Go read this and enjoy……. Tick Tock!

Oh my this title is so apt! This author always stuns and amazes me with how she can create such dark stories where you feel every emotion deep inside!

Ellis lives at her family estate with her father and six uncles, her mother having passed away, a Mrs Jenkins was in charge of her day to day care. The groundskeeper’s young son, Heathan, came to live with him there and became firm friends with young Ellis. This is their story!

Tillie Cole does warn that there are possible triggers and that it’s a dark story…and it is! This is not a story that accepts the inappropriate behaviour, rather it highlights the disgust for it.

Very clever use of names from Heathan and the prisoner’s nicknames to the ‘Uncles’ personas given by Dolly and Rabbit. The whole correlation is genius!

The lead characters are so very different yet so easy to feel empathy for and compassion. There are some parts that are quite humorous like this thought of Heathan’s….
‘Dolly turned, and I saw the cashier try to make sense of what Dolly had said. Non-killers, I thought. So f***ing boring, living their mundane little lives.’
As well as some great vocabulary that is used expertly, like ‘bonkers’.

A few mysteries are wound through the story where, like a jigsaw puzzle, bit by bit is pieced together. The pictures are not pretty, they are devastating but answer many questions.

This is a very fast paced story and one that will blow your mind! Tick Tock! Tick Tock! Take the time to read this incredible tale.

Another fabulously dark psychological thrill ride by the wonderfully talented Tillie Cole!! I can’t begin to explain how this book made me feel… a story in which two characters had their souls completely destroyed and found in each other a f*&ked up bond that only the two of them could comprehend. Two unlikely friends… Dolly and Rabbit who were so cruelly ripped apart by a tragic twist of fate as children, only to be reunited 11 years later all grown up with hearts so black and vengeance on their minds. This was a book that will have you rethink all the fairy tales you were read as a child… down the rabbit hole we go!!

Rabbit turned off the country road we were on and pulled onto a dirt path. Bushy tree branches curled above us to create a tunnel. I leaned my head back and caught the last rays of sun slicing through the leaves. When I lifted my head I saw a building up ahead. A house made from wood stood before us.
Rabbit pulled the car to a halt. There were no sounds coming from this house. No screams or crying. Everything was just . . . silent.
Rabbit’s hands slid from the wheel, and without looking at me, he said, “This is where we’ll be staying for the next several days.”
I leaned forward and looked out of the window. “Your home?”
He shook his head. “The first stop on our adventure.” I looked at him and found his silver eyes were already on me. “We have many stops to go.”
My heart fluttered in nervous excitement. “And this is number one . . .” I whispered, more to myself than Rabbit.
Rabbit opened his door. I was still staring at the woods surrounding this place when my car door opened too. Rabbit stood, rabbit-headed cane in hand, waiting for me to leave the car. I swallowed back the nerves that were creeping up my throat and stepped out. The ground crunched beneath my shoes.
“This way.” Rabbit held his arm out toward the house. I fell into step beside him. I glanced all around us, searching for any sign of people. As if reading my mind, Rabbit said, “There is just you and I here for now. We will meet more people when our journey truly begins.”
“It has not begun?”
Rabbit led us to a wooden door and paused. Gripping the head of his cane tighter, he faced me and said, “Soon, darlin’. Before we go, we must prepare.” He opened the door. “But first . . . tea.”
My breath caught in my throat. Beyond the threshold lay the most perfect tea-party spread one ever did see. “Rabbit!” I gasped. My hands flew to my mouth. I took a step forward into the house and onward into the magical room just beyond. As I passed Rabbit I looked up to see him watching me. I moved swiftly to the long table in the center of the wooden-paneled room, and my eyes widened as I beheld the spread. A white tablecloth lay over the table. Tall seats were positioned around it—eight to be exact—and at each seat was set a plate, a teacup and a saucer. I ran my hand over the cloth and smiled at the silver-domed dishes in the center of the table. I looked behind me to find Rabbit, but he was nowhere in sight. Turning back to the table, I lifted the first silver dome to peek at what was underneath. My mouth watered when I saw strawberry tarts. Smiling in excitement, I skipped to the next. Victoria sponge. Desperate to see them all, I removed each cover—cucumber sandwiches, Bakewell tarts, Battenberg cake, carrot cake . . . so much cake! All of England’s finest delicacies.
My favorites.
A floorboard creaked behind me, and I turned to see Rabbit walking back into the room. I opened my mouth to ask him where everything came from, but then I spotted what he held in his hands.
“Tea?” I asked as Rabbit placed the silver tray, which held a teapot, a jug of milk and a bowl of sugar, on the table. I walked closer and closed my eyes as I inhaled deeply. “Earl Grey,” I whispered, smelling my absolute favorite tea in the entire world.
“Only ever Earl Grey for my little Dolly,” Rabbit confirmed and pulled out a chair for me. I sat down, and Rabbit tucked me in. He took the seat a few places down and gestured to the food. “Help yourself. After all, this tea party is in your honor.”
A giddy laugh escaped my throat as I reached forward and carefully selected a variety of cakes and sandwiches. When I had filled my plate, I took the teapot and poured myself a cup. Rabbit watched me with a peculiar look on his face. His lip was hooked at the corner, and his eyes were . . . soft. His eyes were never soft, always hard and focused, but as he looked at me now, they were almost gentle.
I swallowed, unsure what this strange feeling in my stomach was. I pressed my free hand to my stomach as a comfort against the strange tingling sensations inside. “Tea?” I offered, my voice barely above a whisper.
Rabbit nodded; not a word escaped his mouth. His gaze became more intense as I moved beside him and poured the steaming liquid into his cup. As my arm neared him, I felt him stiffen in his seat. Only a sliver of air prevented our limbs touching. His breathing grew labored as he watched me pour.
But we didn’t touch.
Clearing my throat, I placed the teapot back on the tray and moved to take my seat once again. Just as I took a step, an image floated into my head. Of me and Rabbit. Lips touching. My entire body tensed.
I heard Rabbit’s ragged breathing behind me. Goosebumps broke out along my body, chasing one another up my arms and up to the back of my neck. Shaking my head clear of the image, I sat back down.
I raised my eyes and found Rabbit watching me intensely. I lifted my teacup toward my lips. Rabbit did the same, but just as the lip of the teacup almost reached his mouth, I shouted, “Rabbit!” He froze. “Your little finger!” I scolded. I lowered my cup and shook my head. “You cannot drink tea without raising your little finger, silly!”
Rabbit exhaled, then bowed his head. “You’re right, darlin’. How could I forget?”

Robyn’s Review of Black Belt in Love by Winter Travers

by Winter Travers
Genres: Sports Romance
Title: Black Belt in Love
Series: Powerhouse M.A. Series Book Three
Author: Winter Travers
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance
Release Date: September 29, 2017 

Kennedy

Kennedy Kramer has lived the dream. It just wasn’t her dream. Yearning to build a life of her own, free of her overbearing parents, she opens Zen yoga studio.
To appease her distressed parents and get them off her back, she needs to convince them she’s living the life they want for her.
She somehow finds herself entangled with Dante Craig and Operation: Decoy.
Dante

Dante Craig doesn’t want for much. As long as he has his friends and can do karate whenever he wants, he’s good to go.
With nothing holding him back or tying him down, Dante latches onto Karlton’s harebrained scheme to be Kennedy’s Decoy. But it turns into something neither of them saw coming. Her ass in those yoga pants only helps cement the concept of making the temporary decoy position a permanent one.
Kennedy might have a decoy, but Dante is the one with the secret. When light is shined onto the truth, will they earn a black belt in love or end up with broken hearts?


Winter Travers always entertains her readers with quality stories and this is indeed a very entertaining and enjoyable story.

Dante is a thirty-nine year old single male who lives and breathes karate, while co-owning a martial arts business.. Kennedy is a twenty-five year old woman who owns and runs a yoga business. They have both seen each other around but it isn’t until Kennedy feels pressured to pretend she has a boyfriend when seeing her parents for dinner that they come together.

This story is a light, easy to read, feel good story that really does lift you up. The banter between the characters is fun, I especially like the way they poke fun at each other in a friendly manner. There are some hilarious moments that cause you to chuckle out loud.

Each character is described so clearly you can visualise them easily as well as each scene throughout the book. I personally think this story would make a good movie!

I can’t wait until the next book!

Nannette Mertz – “Once again Winter Travers hit it out of the park with Blackbelt in Love.”


Lisa Venn Sims – “I love this series the powerhouse boys are totally swoon worthy with a bit of humour thrown in.”


Kennedy stood there like a deer in the headlights. Her face had paled, and she looked like she was going to puke all over the floor. She still looked pretty, just a little queasy.

 


 

“Kennedy,” I repeated.

 

 

An odd, low grunt came from her lips.

 

 

“You okay?” My feet had moved on their own accord toward her, and they didn’t stop ‘til my toes were inches away from the tips of her running shoes.

 

 

“Err, I’m good,” she uttered.

 

 

“You think maybe you could help me out? I’m a bit lost here.”

 

 

She looked around, her eyes scanning the shelves. “In the baking aisle?”

Review
Omg! Where do I begin with this review. I am still a muddled mess of emotions and it’s been hours since I finished reading this amazing second chance love story. When I first started this book I thought it would be the typical stripper book, like a Magic Mike-esk story but what I got was so much more and believe me when I say you won’t be disappointed when you start this great book.

The characters are both broken in their own way and when they find each other again the story just takes off. The surprises, twists and turns with the characters and the story are just mind-blowing. Ryan isn’t what I expected him to be like and the way he loves is just beautiful. He has strong feelings for Alana and the feeling is very mutual. But enough about all that, the story will unfold for you and will have to get all the surprises I got. It’s what made this book so great.

This book is a huge recommend from me and I definitely recommend all that this author has to offer. She has become one of my favourite authors and I would have no problem one clicking without even thinking about it.
