Playboy by Logan Chance



They call me a playboy. 

Sure, I like to have fun with the opposite sex, but hey, in my line of work, who wouldn't? 
My name's Jonah and I work for Bunny Hunnies, a swimsuit magazine. Calling the shots, and taking pictures of gorgeous women is every man's fantasy, including mine. 

That is, until Chelsea Sincock walks onto the set of one of my shoots. 

I've known Chelsea since before she was this hot as hell vixen wearing nothing but a bikini. 

What is she doing here? 
Does her brother, Declan, know? 
Did I mention he's my best friend? 

This is going to be hard, I mean difficult, to work with her. And the more I gaze at her from behind the lens, the more I realize I'm in way over my head.


I would like to thank Logan Chase for writing another great steamy book.

What do you do when your best friend's sister comes to work for you? How do you feel when those feelings come back for your brother's best friend? 1 kiss was all it took to save a damsel in distress, will it lead to anything else or will it crush 1 of them? All will be revealed in this hot and steamy Playboy book.

Apple Pie to Die For by Sharon Kleve



Marjorie’s apple pie is award winning, but is it worth dying for?

All Marjorie Vanhorn desires is to make people happy with her award-winning pies—and to be kissed by the delectable county medical examiner, Anderson Swift.
Marjorie’s nemesis is Eloise, the newly appointed county fair organizer, she is blackmailing contestants to get their award-winning recipes. She really wants Marjorie’s apple pie recipe, and if she doesn’t get it, she is willing do whatever it takes to stop Marjorie from winning more blue ribbons.
After being released, jailbird Vega disappears. Kelli and her son Joey are finally free of her physically abusive husband. Nobody misses him, not even his parents.
When Vance, Vega’s twin brother is released from prison, he heads for Marjorie's house where he suspects he might find his brother...and a little fun. Marjorie has no desire to be Vance’s fun.
 


I was given this book by the author to review as I like romance books.
This was a quick and fast read. I loved the characters and the way that Marjorie makes Apple Pies and wants to fall in love with the Medical Examiner but she is hiding a secret. What that secret is, you will have to read Apple Pie to Die For.
Definitely will be reading more from this author as I love her style of writing.

Xavier

Some things never change.

Rhiannon is still as fiery and beautiful as the day I walked away. Now I'm back, ready to seek vengeance against the one man who wronged me. My rival. Her father.

If her father wants war, he'll get a war.

Kidnapping his daughter is the key to my ultimate revenge.

Standalone Mafia Romance
 


I received this through Kindle Unlimited and would like to thank the author for writing such a great book. 
What do you do when the man/boy who was your best friend all of a sudden wants to kill your father? What do you do when the girl/woman who your in love with, her father has hurt you so bad you want revenge? You take what’s his - HIS DAUGHTER. Find out in this exciting Mafia style book what 1 man will do for REVENGE.
Loved this book as the characters remind me of so much of other stories I’ve read. The sex is OMG = steaming. The main characters Rhiannon and Xavier are drop dead gorgeous but have so much passion for each other it’s unreal. If you love Tracie Podger’s books, then you have to read TAKEN by Logan Chance.

Dark Game (DI Kelly Porter #1) by Rachel Lynch



Kelly’s gut turned over as she realised the danger she was in. She heard no sirens. She knew that she was simply collateral. To these men who made a lot of money from the suffering of others, they’d have no problem snuffing her out.

After a scandal forces D. I. Kelly Porter out of the Met, she returns to her home turf in the Lake District. Crimes in the Cumbrian constabulary tend to be of the minor sort, but Kelly begins work on a cold case that shocked the local community – the abduction and brutal murder of ten-year-old Lottie Davies.

Meanwhile, Kelly is also investigating two seemingly straightforward crimes: a case involving an illegal immigrant, and a robbery following the death of local businessman Colin Day. But evidence comes to light that reveals a web of criminal activity beyond anything Kelly imagined. Behind the veneer of sleepy, touristy towns lies a dark and dangerous underworld. As Kelly threatens to expose those with much to lose, she risks paying the ultimate price to get to the truth….


I would like to thank the author Rachel Lynch, Netgalley and Canelo.

DI Kelly Porter has come home from London to the Lake District. She takes on a cold case and then she gets another case to do with people trafficking, illegal immigrants and a prominent local businessman who died? What are they all hiding and who is behind this terrible murder of a 10 year old little girl. You have GOT to read this author's 1st book in a series that looks to be really good.

I read this within 24 hours. I couldn't put it down. It had me engrossed from beginning to end.

Once Upon a Lie (Maeve Conlon #1) by Maggie Barbieri



Maeve Conlon's life is coming apart at the seams. Her bakery is barely making ends meet, and one of her daughters spends as much time grounded as the other does studying. Her ex-husband has a new wife, a new baby, and a look of pity for Maeve that's absolutely infuriating. Her father insists he's still independent, but he's slowly and obviously succumbing to Alzheimer's. And now, her cousin Sean Donovan has been found dead, sitting in his car in a public park, shot through the head.

There was never much love lost between Maeve and Sean and she's not exactly devastated by his death, but suddenly the police are poking around asking the family questions. It's just one more hassle Maeve doesn't have time for, until she realizes that her father, whose memory and judgment are unreliable at best, is a suspect in the murder. Maeve is determined to clear his name, but is she prepared to cope with the dark memories and long-hidden secrets that doing so might dredge up?

Maggie Barbieri will mesmerize readers with Once Upon a Lie, a gripping novel about family, justice, and the choices we make that define who we are.


I would like to Maggie Barbieri for writing this story. It was absolutely mesmerizing and made me listen/read to the end. 

I've been mesmerized in reading about the way a woman who's got a lot on her plate (her dad has dementia, 1 of her daughter's is going off the rails, her ex husband isn't listening to her and her bakery is looking like it's going down hill). Her cousin has been shot in the head in a public car park. Who shot him, why are the police blaming Maeve's dad? Did he kill his own nephew or is he is being framed for a murder he didn't do?

You need to read this compelling and psychological murder story and see what happened to Sean Donovan.

Jackson by Tracie Podger


Jackson
“It’s time to get my shit together. Time to tell her that I love her. Time to right wrongs and put the past behind me. But I have an addiction, one that haunts me, that takes over my body and mind. One that leaves scars.”
Summer
“It’s time to get my shit together. Time to tell him that I love him. Time to move on from my past. But he has an addiction, one that scares me, one that I don’t feel capable of dealing with.”

Jackson - Son of a wealthy, abusive man finds peace in art. Whether that art be on his body or walls, it gives him an outlet.
Summer – A woman in mourning, finds peace in the arms of her friend.
Together they can fight their demons, they can put the past behind them – or can they? 
Can two broken people have the love they both desire? Or will dangerous, harmful outlets and loss forever consume them?

Jackson is a standalone with The Passion Series. 

Angsty romance for over 18’s. This novel contains scenes that could be a trigger for some. Please feel free to contact the author or refer to the Trigger Warning section on the author’s website – www.TraciePodger.com


I would like to thank Tracie Podger & TBC for allowing me to read this new book of hers. 

When I started to read this, I wasn't sure what the storyline was about. But as I carried on reading, it became obvious of Jackson's character and how much pain he was in. Summer is in pain for a different reason but what they both need is each other. Read if Summer and Jackson can overcome their problems and if they can co-exist with each other or are they forever doomed to never be together.

Can't wait to see if Tracie Podger will write the Passion series and if she'll do other books from the other characters in this series.
