Kendall Moore has given up hope. 

As a labor and delivery nurse, she covets the joy and love she sees every day in expectant couples. When she met the owner of the local race shop, Kendall finally felt that spark. She thought he did, too.

But he never called. 

Logan Townsend is a man whose skills are unparalleled. With so many people vying for the racing guru’s attention, Logan doesn’t have much free time to himself. But he knows he needs to find some. Because he can’t stop thinking about the woman who gave him the best night of his life. 

Just as Kendall decides to move on, Logan reappears. 

Try as she might to resist the temptation, Kendall fails. Because with a man like Logan, it’s hard to control the burn.

So this is an ARC that is actually going to be released tomorrow (3/12) and I have just started it and I’m really excited to read it!

Troy Alexander is sex on a stick and every girl’s dream at John Rushmore University. He’s also the bane of my existence.

Our meet-cute wasn’t exactly cute. He called me a nerd, and I accused him of slacking off on the field. Now, we have to live together. 

I’m supposed to try to play nice to keep a roof over my head. Not in my nature. Our arrangement could be a living hell, but slowly, I realize the worst thing he ever did wasn’t calling me names. It was making me see there’s more to him under the surface. And now, I’m screwed.

*Heart Stopper is an enemies-to-lovers college sports romance filled with banter, pranks, and off the charts chemistry that will make you swoon. 

This is a standalone novel.
 

This again was an ARC that is also being released tomorrow I really enjoyed this and there will be a review posted soon! I am a little conflicted about one thing but overall I really enjoyed this book!

Reading next?:

When Beth gets dumped by text, she’s more irritated about being left without a ride, than losing her boyfriend of six years. With not feeling the heartbreak you are suppose to feel after a breakup, it tells her all she needs to know about that relationship.

When her best friend and roommate Charlie, returns from Paris, after filming his debut movie, having also been screwed over. Then its time to get the drinks out.

One drunken night, a scorching kiss later and the Celibet is made. 

Can they stay single for twelve weeks? 

Will their attraction to each other break their pact, or can they resist temptation?

When fate intervenes and friendship turns into more, who will win the bet? 

This is also you guessed it an ARC. I believe this releases tomorrow but my blog post review isn’t due until Saturday so I have a little time to read it!

So those are my Three Ws. If you’ve done this link your post below and I’ll be sure to check yours out!

Mafia Princess by Lucia Black

54783249. sy475

Alessandro Moretti.
My enemy. My tormentor.
My first love.

We were fire and gasoline; destined for nothing but ashes from the very beginning.

But once upon a time, in a summer long since gone, we were good together.
We were perfect.

And then I ruined us.

My name is Lorna Bianchi…
And this is how it started.


Warning: This story ends in a cliffhanger. Mafia Princess is a prequel novella in the Moretti Mafia series. It can be read before Mafia Prince but does not need to be. 

I really liked this book it set up for the first book perfectly and I can’t wait to actually read the first book!

Reading Next?:

I have no idea because I’m feeling kind of slummpish so I think a reread of something may be on the cards.

Reckless by Tia Louise

54661158
I love you too much to hate you… 

Angelica Treviño was the most beautiful girl I’d ever seen. 
I wanted to make her smile, but I had no idea when she did, she’d steal my heart.
Sunset eyes, waves of golden-brown hair, cute little butt…
I’m ready to meet the family and put a ring on it. 
Instead, I’m on the wrong end of a gun, her older brother threatening to kill me. 

It all started with a kiss… 

Deacon Dring is a cocky rich boy with ocean-blue eyes, sexy brown hair, and a chiseled body. 
Soft lips that melt my knees, that melt everything.
As a child, my family said he was bad. 
They made me promise never to see him again. 
But one touch of his hand, one reckless kiss, and I broke that vow… 
Many times.
Now we’re adults, and the price of lying is more than I’m willing to pay.
They say we can’t be together. I say try and stop us. 

(RECKLESS KISS is a stand-alone, forbidden, billionaire romance about two families who hate each other and the boy + girl who choose to love in spite of their violent past. No cheating. No cliffhanger.) 

So quite honestly I was disappointed with this, from the description I thought this was just going to hit the spot and be what I needed and it be amazing. It fell kinda flat for me. Like their relationship was cute but about half way through I just found myself not really caring for it. So I didn’t really like this. I haven’t written my review for it, but I rated it 3 stars.

New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels brings a new endearing friends-to-lovers story to life in the third STANDALONE in the Arrowood Brothers series.⁣

Devney Maxwell has been my best friend since we were six years old, but she has no idea I’m in love with her.⁣

Even when I’m on the road playing professional baseball, she’s my home—the only one I’ve ever known. But when I return to Sugarloaf to care for the family farm, I discover she’s trying to talk herself into a life with the wrong man … and I become desperate.⁣

It only takes a single, perfect kiss to change everything.⁣

I have six months to get it right with Devney—to convince her to leave this town and turn that kiss into forever.⁣

I aim to do just that as I spend my days coaching her nephew’s baseball team, fixing up the farm, and loving her with all I have. Finally, it seems like our relationship is secure and we’ll find a way to make it work.⁣

Then tragedy strikes … changing her life forever. She’s needed here more than ever, but as for me—there’s no way I can stay.⁣

I know she’s the one for me, but I might have to let her go …⁣

So this is an e-arc and I have to have a review posted on the 18th and I’m trying really hard to keep up with my reviews and not get behind so I need to read this! I love Corinne Michaels though so I don’t think it should be a problem.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently Reading:

I am currently reading nothing because I just finished reading an ARC yesterday and haven’t started anything since.

54561405. sy475

Don’t mess with the Kings of Vengeance…I may not have been raised on the right side of the tracks, but there are two things in life you never mess with: women and children.With the world of the Kings going crazy, the overwhelming urge to keep Queenie safe is just as strong as the need to find Gunner.Anyone who threatens the Kings or what I’ve claimed as my own better pray I never find them.Vengeance is coming.

I really loved this book it is book 4 in the Kings of Vengeance series and I absolutely loved it! I just need the next book!

Reading Next?:

So being that I’m participating in Avid August in the goodreads group Devour Your TBR which is focusing on reading late arcs or just getting through your arcs. And we all know I am behind with netgalley arcs so I’m going to start getting through them. So I am in between two choices which is:

The House Swap – Rebecca Fleet

39774688. sy475

‘No one lives this way unless they want to hide something.’

When Caroline and Francis receive an offer to house swap, they jump at the chance for a week away from home. After the difficulties of the past few years, they’ve worked hard to rebuild their marriage for their son’s sake; now they want to reconnect as a couple.

On arrival, they find a house that is stark and sinister in its emptiness – it’s hard to imagine what kind of person lives here. Then, gradually, Caroline begins to uncover some signs of life – signs of her life. The flowers in the bathroom or the music in the CD player might seem innocent to her husband but to her they are anything but. It seems the person they have swapped with is someone she used to know; someone she’s desperate to leave in her past.

But that person is now in her home – and they want to make sure she’ll never forget . . .

Or another option is:

Dark Room – Heidi McLaughlin & L.P Dover

35963519. sy475

The rules of Society X are simple… break them and you’re out.
Rule #1 – No names
It doesn’t matter if you want to know, it’s forbidden.
Rule #2 – No exchanging numbers
It doesn’t matter if you want to call, it’s forbidden.
Rule #3 – Everything is to remain strictly anonymous.
It doesn’t matter if you want to tell, it’s forbidden.
The Dark Room is the only place you can live out your fantasies and no one will ever know it’s you.
For Parker, what started out as a business transaction has turned into an addiction.
For Mia, it’s been a chance to discover who she truly is.
What happens in the dark will have you begging for more…

Two very different books but I still don’t know which one I am going to be reading!
