A brand new contemporary romance from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

It started as a game.

We flirted. We played. Most importantly—we won.

Then I discovered who he was: Gambler. Famous playboy. Silver-eyed player who never plays to lose...

And my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael.

He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction.

So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep.

My heart, soul, and body weren't supposed to be part of the deal.

But somewhere between big wins and long nights, my house of cards started to tumble.

What was this devil with those piercing eyes doing to me?

I’d given up on love, but the wicked, all-in Cullen Carmichael was upping the ante and wouldn’t stop until he’d won it all.

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.

Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary. 

Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.

From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed. 

She was an addiction. 

At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise. 

Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman. 

But I couldn’t really have her.
I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.

So I took a chance.

And that was when our love story really began.

Review: The Duke Buys a Bride by Sophie Jordan (The Rogue Files, #3)

Here's a little bit about The Duke Buys a Bride
Add on [goodreads]
Book 3 in the The Rogue Files

A bride wasn’t in his plans . . .

The last thing Marcus, the Duke of Autenberry, expects to see after sleeping off a night’s drunken shenanigans is a woman being auctioned in the village square. Before he can think about the ramifications, he buys her, thinking he’s winning the girl her freedom. Instead, he discovers he’s bought a wife.

A duke wasn’t in hers . . .

Alyse Bell is almost rid of the shackles that bound her in a name-only marriage, but the day her friend promised to purchase her in a wife auction, he vanishes, leaving her to face a mob of unsavory bachelors intent on owning her body and soul. But the appearance of a wicked, wealthy stranger changes her path forever.

The road to ruin . . .

Marcus doesn’t know what to do with the impertinent chit who clearly isn’t duchess material! Insisting their marriage isn’t legitimate, they leave for his estate in Scotland, hoping to devise a plan to get rid of each other. However, on a journey fraught with misadventure, their attraction grows and Marcus realizes he’ll do anything to keep this fiery woman for his own.

Read from: June 29 to July 4th, 2018
Read on: eARC


All the books in the Rogue Files are standalone, but really, it helps to have read the first two books in the series to get a bit of background.

That said, let's start with the review.

I was quite happy that Marcus was getting his book because if someone needed a good kick in the butt to finally gain more maturity and understanding it was him and nothing does it better than finding love.

Marcus is still trying to get away from his family, trying to cope with what he believes to be a betrayal from his best friend and stepmother. This journey leads him to Collie-Ben, a small village, where he witnesses something he didn't expect, a wife auction. He is disgust by this practice that seems to be more entertainment for the villagers.

Without thinking, he ends up buying the lass hoping to end this horrible wife auction.

Alyse thought she had all of her future planned out. Her best friend would come for her and then would leave this village and go to London like they both talked when they were younger, but when the young man doesn’t show as promise, her world crumbles and she has no idea who will end up purchasing her. But she refuses to show it and she’s ready to bind her time until she can finally leave the village and go fetch that dream of hers.

As they both leave the village to head to one of Marcus’ mansions, the chemistry between them is slowly increasing as events bring them closer together. Both of them refuse to admit it even if they both have weak moments where they let themselves slowly appreciate each other’s company.

Marcus can’t help but admire how resilient Alyse is and she is learning that Marcus has a lot more to show to the world than he lets on. As they both try to keep their distances, they will both learn that sometimes, what you always thought you wanted, might not have been what they actually needed.

What I liked most about Alyse was that she wasn’t afraid to speak her mind most of the time and she wasn’t one to simply lay down and cry when things didn’t go as planned. She has a strong personality and she was ready to rethink of new ways to get where she wanted to.

Marcus is far from being a typical gentleman, but he has a sense of loyalty that you can’t fault him. Even when he could have left her to her demise like she often offered him, he was set onto making sure she would be protected at all cost. He saw her as his responsibility but you could tell that he saw more into her than he wanted to admit.

I really enjoyed this book. I wouldn’t say it was my favourite of the series, but it was still a good read and I enjoyed getting back into this series.

I’m looking forward to the next book because you know that Sophie Jordan will give us another story that will keep us on our toes. 

I was given an advanced copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Out on August 7, 2018

Cary “Vamp” Sullivan earned his Riot MC patch and shoved Lorraine Francis Ingram out of his life six years ago by cheating on her. He’s regretted it ever since because he knew she was a top-notch woman. After mentioning his regrets to his brother, Cal, Vamp suddenly finds himself faced with an opportunity to win Lorraine back. When he runs into her unexpectedly and finds out she has been beaten at the hands of a man, Vamp and his Riot MC Brothers are determined to protect her.

She’s determined there will be no second chances, but her resolve is weakened because Vamp isn’t playing fair, he’s fighting…fighting to win her over.

Once she and Vamp are reunited again, they realize there is a very real threat to them both. Lorraine and Vamp are put to the test to rekindle their long lost love and stay alive.

I started to speak, but Vamp got there before me. “There is no ‘someone else’ to follow you to your office. I’m takin’ care of this shit.”

That statement threw me off my impending rant. “Excuse me?” I asked reflexively.

“Ain’t speakin’ Swahili, baby. I’m taking care of this shit. All of it. You may not have kissed me back like you used to do, but I could feel you holdin’ back on me. You want this. You think about me. I fucked up. I’m sorry about that. I need to earn your respect again. I’m gonna do everything I fuckin’ can to get that respect back. Once that’s done, I’m gonna convince you to give us a second chance. We owe that to each other. I fucked up, but don’t add to my fuck-up by turnin’ a cold shoulder on all that we once were, and all that we could have in the future.”

I closed my eyes in a long blink. It was an attempt at stalling and keeping my cool. Opening my eyes, I said, “One kiss does not mean anything. How about I take care of my own shit?”

Vamp moved closer to me, so there were only four inches separating us. “I am taking care of it. It’s not your shit to take care of any more, baby. This asshole is gonna learn not to fuck with you or any other woman. Your hot water heater is going to get upgraded and upgraded today. Now, you gonna be stuck in that stuffy-ass headquarters building all day or what?”

I wanted to argue with him. I wanted to throw down my best attitude and put him in his place, but I knew that would only result in him taking my mouth again. I may not have kissed him back, but he was right. I was holding back, and my hold was no more than a thin thread. He wants a second chance! That silly wayward thought made a spark of hope flare inside me. I couldn’t let that spark catch fire, though. I knew about him and I had to protect myself from his brand of heartbreak.

Release Day: The Naked Truth by Vi Keeland

Here is a little bit about The Naked Truth
Add on [goodreads]

From #1 New York Times Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It was just a typical Monday.

Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client.

After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed. 

Or so I thought…

Until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch.

My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance.

And that was the good part of my day.

Because the gorgeous man crouched down and looking at me like he wanted to eat me alive, was none other than my ex, Gray Westbrook.

A man who I’d only just begun to move on from.

A man who my heart despised—yet my body obviously still had other ideas about.

A man who was as charismatic and confident as he was sexy.

Somehow, I managed to make it through my presentation ignoring his intense stare. 

Although it was impossible to ignore all the dirty things he whispered into my ear right after I was done.

But there was no way I was giving him another chance, especially now that he was a client
…was there?
