Renegade by Chantal Fernando


New York Times bestselling author of the Knights of Fury MC series Chantal Fernando is back with trouble in the form of a renegade.

Good girl Isabella wouldn’t miss the birth of her sister’s baby for the world. So when her car breaks down and one of the bikers next door offers her a ride to Vegas, it’s too tempting to pass up. Besides, she can think of worse travel conditions than wrapping her arms around Renny, otherwise known as Renegade.

Tall, dark and handsome, the man is pure sex on a Harley.

Between wild parties and rumbling motorcycles, living next to the Knights of Fury MC has always left Isabella curious, but after a night in Vegas, she gets a firsthand taste. Drinks in the club surrounded by burly bikers soon turns into a series of daring decisions, which don’t seem so bad until she wakes up the next morning. Married. To Renny.

Could she be more of a cliché?

Nothing complicates an annulment like lingering temptation, especially when Isabella and Renny give in to their need, putting their marriage where their mouths are. But as Isabella learns what outlaw life is really like, she’ll have to decide if she’s in love with a biker—or in over her head.

Please note: This book is part of the Knights of Fury MC series but can be read as a stand-alone.

While Izzy is trying to get to her sister before she has her baby, her car breaks down before she even leaves town. She doesn't have time for this; does she call a mechanic or her dad? When she hears a bike coming closer, she gets a little nervous. Not bad nervous but excited nervous. She lives close to the MC and has for a little over a year. Hasn't had any problem. When Renny offers a ride to Vegas, she cannot refuse; after all, it will get her to her sister sooner.

Renny is part of the Knights of Fury MC. He has been watching Izzy for a while and can't believe he is about to take her to Vegas on the back of his bike. He wants to get to know her better, wants more with her. The trip to Vegas is uneventful and Renny offers to pick her up when she is ready to go back home.

Can Izzy accept the MC life if she gets involved with Renny? Will she end things with him when she learns the truth about how they met? Can she help them get one of their brothers out of trouble? Will her estranged father ever redeem himself? Will Izzy and Renny get their happily ever after?

I love Chantal Fernando and her MC stories. She has a way of bringing the story together with fun, flirty, sexy couples and a storyline with just enough suspense to keep you on your toes. Although I really liked this story, I think the first book with Saint and Skylar is my favorite couple so far. I cannot wait for the next book in this series.

3.5 stars

This is the second book in the series, and I would definitely recommend that you read Saint first, so that you are up-to-date with the current state of the MC.

I really enjoyed this biker romance, and felt that the relationship between Izzy and Renny developed well, with a great twist in their first visit to Vegas. As well as a cute new baby niece for Izzy, there was Shadow, the dog they re-homed, who was the star in a few important scenes. However, there were bits which it seemed to me were skated over – indeed, I didn't get why they were there when they could have been used to good effect. For example, the shooting at the mall. I waited and waited for it to come up (surely it was a huge event in her day!) – to be fair, eventually it did, but so much in passing that it seemed pointless to have included at all. There were a few other passages which I found didn't help the story's progress. They didn't spoil the story, but they did deflect from the flow.

That said, I found that there was good chemistry, definitely plenty of excitement, and enough mystery and intrigue that I am looking forward to reading the next book.

A New Empire by Layla Reyne Instagram Tour


Legacies were made to be rewritten.

Assassin Hawes Madigan wants to do right—by his family, his organization, his city, and the man he’s falling for, ATF agent Christopher Perri. But Hawes’s rules are being challenged by someone willing to kill for the old ways. To save his soul and his empire, Hawes must make an impossible decision: fight from the outside or bend the knee to win back his throne from within.

Chris is used to being the inside man, the one undercover. Now, he’s on the outside marshaling forces in support of the man and the ring of assassins he was supposed to take down. His mission shifted when he found something that’s been missing for ten long years—a home, with Hawes.

As Hawes and Chris make a dangerous play for control, the lines between allies and traitors blur. Trusting the wrong person could destroy the legacy Hawes envisions for the Madigans. But not trusting anyone, or each other, could mean lights out on their love and lives forever.

The King and King Slayer fight together in this thrilling conclusion to the Fog City Trilogy!

A New Empire is action packed and full of tension. I kept having to remind myself to breathe because I was holding my breath all the time. I raced through the story, desperate to find out what was going to happen and how Hawes and Chris were going to get their happily ever after.

This is one of those book series that would make a great movie or TV show. I know rather than re-reading the books in this series, I’ll buy the audiobooks and listen to them over and over again.

The final instalment in the Fog City trilogy was exciting, exhilarating, incredibly sexy, and over far too quickly. Thankfully there will be spins-offs, which I hope means we will get stories for both Holt and Amelia. A New Empire is another outstanding book from Reyne.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the concluding book of the trilogy. And my advice... read them all in one go! I say this because these are so full of twists and turns, and dramatic cliffhangers, that unless it is all fresh in your mind, it is quite a challenge to remember all the loyalties or betrayals. That said, this book manages to throw a lot of other spanners into the works – to say the least. Nothing is as it seems, and yet everything is obvious!

At the heart of these books is the romance between Hawes (the King of the empire) and Chris aka Dante (undercover agent). From the beginning, their attraction to each other has been the most dangerous thing, but also gave them both a reason to carry on. Even when their secrets come out, their love for each other is enough to offer trust and a second chance. But the journey is certainly not an easy one!

This is a complex mafia-type story, with more baddies, more hacking, more eavesdropping, and more violence than you would expect. But the interactions between law & order and absolute evil are many; complicated by mixed intentions, divided loyalties, and inevitably power through arms and money. Be ready for the ride of your life.

As I said at the beginning, you will find it easier to keep up with the action if you read all three in one go. They are definitely worth the time, and I loved how everything worked out across the many strands. As you peel away the layers of deceit, it seems like they grow back, but in the end, we are left with a full and satisfying story. Thank you, Layla Reyne.

Beneath the Ashes by Dea Poirier


A troubled detective learns that the fires of the past are still burning in this haunting, emotional thriller.

When detective Claire Calderwood is called to a grisly murder scene, she’s haunted by memories of her murdered sister. The victim is tied to a motel bed, her head covered in plastic and her body sprinkled with ashes. Claire’s dealt with vile crime scenes before, but this one strikes close to home.

Claire’s boyfriend, reporter Noah Washington, once helped find her sister’s killer, but now he’s a distraction to this new investigation. She wants to help him resolve the mysteries of his past, but Noah has been distant, and Claire knows he’s keeping something from her.

When another girl is murdered like the first, Claire suspects the work of a serial killer. As the case heats up and evidence mounts, she finds herself in profound danger. Claire’s been burned before; now she must decide if she can trust Noah to help her solve the case and uncover the truth that lies beneath the ashes.

Claire is recovering from solving her sister’s murder when she's asked to help in a nearby community that isn't used to dealing with murder. What Claire finds when she arrives is a grisly scene. Woman murdered, tied to a bed and covered in ashes. Is this a forensic countermeasure? Someone treating this woman as trash? The questions continue to pile up, without many answers.

When it becomes clear that there is a serial killer among this small community, it will take all of Claire's investigatory skills, as well as a little help from Noah, to figure out how to keep the young women of the community safe.

Noah is still part of this story, but more in a peripheral setting. He is off working on his own case while Claire is working on hers. While they aren't together a whole lot, their paths intertwine and they have some issues to work out.

The story is full of suspects. Claire is trying to piece it all together, while racing against the murderer. Just when you think she's figured part of the story out, a twist is thrown in and you have to start all over again.

Win Big by Kelly Jamieson


When your name is Wynn, victory’s the only option...

Everly Wynn: As the only daughter in the Wynn family of hockey heroes, I never shared the ice with my brothers—or the approval they got from my father.
And that was before the scandal that ruined my life at sixteen.
Now that I’ve put all that behind me and built a successful career, the last thing I need is another hockey player in my life.
Especially one like Wyatt Bell.
He’s an arrogant, fast-living party boy. I hate how he gets by on his good looks and charm.
So why can’t I get him out of my mind?

Wyatt Bell: Life is short, and you’ve got to live it to the fullest. I learned that the hard way.
So on the ice, I always play to win, and on the town, fun and flirting are my game.
Because it’s better to laugh your way through the pain than to let them see you’re hurting—but I’ll never stop wishing I could find someone to share the real me with.
Something about Everly Wynn makes me think she could be the one.
But all she sees is a hockey jock hooked on good times.
If she didn’t take herself so seriously, maybe she would take a chance on being happy.

Everly Wynn is the only daughter in the hockey dynasty. With a family feud brewing, family health concerns, and a reputation to uphold, Everly is the perfect daughter. Everly has a past secret that she has tried to put behind her, but it's always lingering in her mind.

Wyatt needs someone to ground him. He's constantly surrounded by beautiful women, but those women want things from him. When he pursues Everly, he knows that she doesn't want anything from him. Wyatt also carries immense guilt from his past. He is trying to do the right thing and also warring with his feelings for Everly.

These two are a sweet couple that are just trying to figure out their lives. They want someone to love them and someone to love back, but with their pasts always creeping in to their psyche, they'll have to fight hard for what they want.

I can't wait for more in this series because each couple is so sweet. Jamieson has a way of writing that allows the reader to really connect with the characters.

4.5 stars

Everly Wynn is the only daughter of the Wynn family. And she has some issues that stem from when she was a teenager. Since then, she has tried to be perfect but the anxiety from it all seems to be too much at times.

Wyatt Bell is a player for the Condors and he likes the ladies too. When he is near Everly, they seem to spar. Their sparring matches are almost as hot as the heat sizzling between them. But Wyatt isn't the relationship type of guy.

With a potential PR nightmare coming for the foundation that Everly is the chairman of, she and Wyatt pretend to date. But with all the dating, their feelings begin to grow for real.

Can they make a real relationship work? Will Everly be able to tell Wyatt about her past? Can Wyatt tell Everly about who the little boy is and how he is related to him? Can they move pass the pain of the past and make a future together?

I am loving this series and I think Everly and Wyatt are my favorite couple so far. Author Kelly Jamieson has a perfect way of telling a story that will draw you in until the end. I recommend this whole series and can't wait for more.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the third book in the series, and whilst each deals with a new pairing, they are all interlinked and you definitely will understand the family dynamics and current issues best if you have read them all. If you like hockey romances, then there is NO reason why you would not want to be devouring them anyway!

This time it is the girl of the family, Everly, who gets her chance at love... although she really would not have chosen to fall for a hockey player in her father's own team! Mind you, when you work as much as she does for the team's charitable foundation, then it was probably inevitable. As we get to learn more about her as a person, and how much she has felt like a second-class member of the family because she is not a hockey player, it is rather sad. Her mental health issues really aren't a surprise given the stresses that she places on herself.

Wyatt has a very different approach to life. And for some reason, the serious, considered Everly sees behind the playboy façade and recognises that there is a connection between them, regardless of the problems which may arise.

I won't reveal more, as you should discover the goodness yourself! But rest assured, it is a really good read!

One Christmas Eve by Shannon Stacey


They couldn’t be more different. Or more perfect for each other.

New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey returns with a warm and cozy opposites-attract Christmas story.


Zoe Randall is busy living her life as she damn well pleases. She’s back in her favorite town, her divorce in her rearview mirror, and living out her childhood dream of running a bookstore with her cousin. She has no interest in the uptight nerd who opened his boring-ass business next to her shop… until he complains about one of her sexy window displays.

Then it’s game on.

Preston Wheeler knows he takes life a little too seriously. But when the saucy bookseller next door starts pushing his buttons, he can feel that changing. Beautiful, vivacious Zoe challenges him in all the best ways, and soon he’s pushing her buttons right back: teasing and flirting all the way through the holiday season.

As Preston loosens up and Zoe is treated to the man behind the suit (particularly his forearms), she realizes she’s more interested than she cares to admit. And Preston comes to see the beauty—the absolute delight—in adding Zoe’s bright splashes of color to his once very black-and-white existence.

This is the second in the series, and I would say that you could read it as a standalone, although Noah and Carly from book one are important side characters here too.

Zoe has opened a bookstore with her cousin Carly, and she has a lot of fun doing cheeky window displays which have caused a little trouble with the local council! But she is standing firm, refusing to be cowed or made to feel small by anyone, ever again. Newly divorced, we learn just what a douche she was married to... and we get to understand why her reaction to new neighbour Preston is so snarky.

Even at that first snarky stage, their conversations are full of chemistry, which gives the reader a sure sense of a fun twist to ensure that they end up with a happily ever after. That it should rely in no small part to post-it notes in raunchy reads is a wonderful touch.

I really enjoyed the mixture of book shop, holiday season, family issues, interesting ties, and a man very willing to satisfy a woman. A very enjoyable read, thank you, Shannon Stacey.


Avid Reader☆☆☆
M/F Romance

This is the second book in the series, but the main characters from book one are prominent in this one too. While you don't necessarily have to read book one, it's a cute story.

Zoe owns a bookstore with her cousin, Carly. While Zoe gets her kicks by making up fun, sometimes racy window displays, she knows that it sometimes causes a stir among the town’s people. Zoe doesn't really believe in love, but she wants to believe. Zoe wants to live her own life, on her own terms. What she doesn't need is a prickly, stuck-up neighbor.

Preston is wanting to head out on his own. He's sick of the grind in the city. So when he finds the perfect location in a quaint little town, he can't wait to set up shop. What he isn't expecting is a racy window display, right next door. His clients will run away if this keeps up. And while he is trying to fit in, he makes a terrible first impression on his neighbor.

While the two of them get to know each other, Zoe's meddling friends give helping shoves and both Zoe and Preston realize how much they have in common. This is a sweet story, but while I liked the premise, I just didn't think they had great chemistry. It seemed incredibly forced at times for me. But it was still a cute story.

More Than Pleasure You by Shayla Black


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black comes a new story in her More Than Words series…

Can I convince her our hot but temporary engagement should last forever?

I’m Stephen Lund, confirmed bachelor… and son of a successful billionaire whose sins I can’t forget—or forgive. After he delivered an ultimatum to either get over his transgressions or get out of the family business, I put space between us with a temporary getaway to Maui. My rental’s sexy caretaker, Skye Ingram, is a beautiful distraction. Yeah, it’s a terrible time to start a fling, but I can’t help wanting to give her every bit of pleasure she’s willing to take.

When Skye needs a date to her ex-boyfriend’s wedding, I’m game to play her pretend fiancé. The jerk should see what he passed up… and that I’m holding her now. But our pretend engagement begins to feel real. Our passion certainly is. So are the consequences. When I’m confronted with the reality that our lives are now irrevocably entwined, I have to choose between leaving Skye to return to the life—and wealth—I’ve always known or abandoning everything familiar to start over with the woman who awakened my heart.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

What do you do when you need a fake fiancé for your ex-boyfriend's wedding coming up soon? You let the hunk staying in the house you are the caretaker for, be that fake fiancé. But what starts out as a way to get through the wedding because of the ex-boyfriend's mother, turns out to be so much more.

Skye doesn't want to go to the wedding on her own because Finn's mother thinks that they belong together. What his mother doesn't realize, is that they were only friends and can never be anything more. So why not take Stephen up on his offer for him to be her fake fiancé.

Stephen Lund came to Hawaii to figure out his life and a few other things. But when he sees Skye, he wants to help her out. He is attracted to her from the start. And as they get to know each other better, he begins to want more, so much more. So being her fake fiancé isn't going to be a hardship for him.

Can they convince those at the wedding that their relationship is real? What happens when Skye finds out one of the reasons Stephen came to Hawaii? Will they have a chance at a real relationship?

I love Skye and Stephen; they might be my favorite couple in this series so far. If you haven't read this series yet, you need to because it is worth it. Shayla Black has a way of drawing you into a story and making you feel like you are part of it until the very end. So sit back and enjoy it.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆☆
This is a super-hot novella which fits perfectly in the 1001 Dark Nights collection and also in the More Than Words series. It fits in just before book five, but it won't matter whether you have read book five yet or not. I definitely think that you can read this as a standalone, but really you will want to go back to the beginning and enjoy them all if you have the time!

Stephen Lund is all about business, and even his time on Maui is supposedly to try and purchase the property he is staying in for a client. When he meets his housekeeper, Skye, he finds himself suggesting that he be her fake fiancé to help her out at a wedding. Truly, Finn's mother is the worst nightmare one could ever imagine – and really should be taken to task for her terrible attitude... but I digress!

Obviously, the chemistry between the two of them causes them to throw caution to the wind, and give into the feelings and the lust that they need to explore. Somehow though, Stephen needs to be honest about why he is there, as well as work out how on earth his work life and his love life could ever balance. Thankfully when it all gets rather messy, the Reeds and their other halves are there to help get them the happily ever after they want and deserve.

Super sexy, lots of fun, and the sunshine of Maui warms the pages along with the passion!


Avid Reader☆☆☆☆☆
M/F Romance

This is part of a series that you definitely need to read in order to understand all of the complexities.

Stephen is on his first semi-vacation in a while. He's always been busy preparing to take over his dad's firm. But while on vacation in Hawaii, he overhears the caretaker's problems and can't help but want to do something to help.

Skye is looking for a date to her ex-boyfriend's wedding. And while she loves her ex-boyfriend, Finn, as a friend, she knows that without a date, his mother will never give up hope that these two will wind up together. Skye loves who Finn is marrying and just wants to let them be happy. So, when presented with the issue and a solution, she allows Stephen to step in.

With a few days to get their story straight, can Stephen and Skye really make everyone believe that they are in love? Can they convince themselves that there really are no feelings involved? And when the true reason that Stephen is in Hawaii comes out, can either of them really continue with the charade?

This couple is engaging, funny, loving, and full of chemistry. They banter with the best and I really enjoyed watching them figure out what was important to them in life.
