The Darkest Sunrise (The Darkest Sunrise Duet, #1)
Coming July 13
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.  

Whoever coined that phrase is a bald-faced liar. Words are often the sharpest weapon of all, triggering some of the most powerful emotions a human can experience. 

“You’re pregnant.”  

“It’s a boy.”  

“Your son needs a heart transplant.”  

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.  

Lies.  

Syllables and letters may not be tangible, but they can still destroy your entire life faster than a bullet from a gun.  

Two words—that was all it took to extinguish the sun from my sky. 

“He’s gone.”  

For ten years, the darkness consumed me.  

In the end, it was four deep, gravelly words that gave me hope of another sunrise.  

“Hi. I’m Porter Reese.”

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.  

Bullshit.  

Words destroyed me.  

“I’m sorry. She didn’t make it.”  

“Daddy, he can’t breathe!”  

“There’s nothing more we can do for your son.”  

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.  

Lies.  

Those syllables and letters became my executioner. I told myself that, if I didn’t acknowledge the pain and the fear, they would have no power over me. But, as the years passed, the hate and the anger left behind began to control me.  

Two words—that was all it took to plunge my life into darkness.  

“He’s gone.”  

In the end, it was four soft, silky words that gave me hope of another sunrise. 

“Hi. I’m Charlotte Mills.”

Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania (population three thousand outside of tourist season). 

And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed date, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has rescued: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.

Catherine has already had her fifteen minutes of fame and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works. For a time.

But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. There’s an immediate connection, and it’s more electric than the bond of two people who endured a traumatic event. It’s something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle; something she is afraid to trust.

Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine...before the spark fades?
Catherine Wright has lived a not-so-charmed life in her twenty four years. A scandal when she was a teenager ruined her reputation and not long after she became a single mother with no support system. But she is a strong, determined woman and with a little help she has managed to survive and somewhat thrive as a single mom working at a diner. She tries to avoid complications, attention, and guards her privacy. She has lost the confidence she had as a youth, and is stuck in a rut.

One night changes everything. She acts as a good samaritan and saves a man's life. She tries to avoid any media attention over the incident. But saving a famous hockey players makes for good press. The mystery and speculation is nerve wracking and people won't rest til the savior is outed. And that brings her right into the path of hockey star Brett Madden and in the spotlight that she just wants to avoid.

Brett is appreciative, concerned, and caring. But he is also suffering pain, loss, and fear of losing his career. But he knows he is lucky and got a second chance to live. He is drawn to Cath and wants to help her, but she is stubborn and resistant. But there is an underlying chemistry there that both are scared to admit.

This is a slow build of two people tied together by tragedy but then forging a friendship and developing feelings. It is the handsome, charming, talented, famous, wealthy "Prince" and the poor, struggling, small town, young mom. The girl who just wants to avoid attention finds herself in the center of a media frenzy, while he was born famous and grew up to gain his own public attention. She is guarded, untrusting, scared, and trying to be smart and not make more poor choices. He is a man with good intentions just fighting for a chance.

But this all shakes up her life in ways she never expected...some good and some bad. It disrupts her normal, controlled life. It pushes her out of her comfort zone. It forces her to face her past. It brings some closure and understanding. Brett is a man who is now struggling, but also wants to make her life better and feels drawn to her. It makes them both realize that life it too short not to go after what they want. But their lives have some challenges. Their futures are uncertain. She can continue to resist. Or she can take what she can get as long as it lasts, but it runs the risk of more heartbreak.

The characters were really likable. I adored Brett, and even though Cath could be bit strong-willed, she had her reasons for her current decisions. Her past was not easy and it really damaged her, so it was understandable. But she also showed growth and acceptance. The side characters really added depth to the story. Her daughter, Brenna was darling. Her friends Keith, Lou, Leroy, and Misty made the town feel real. Her family had some dynamics that added to the drama, and his family was interesting.

This was sweet, flirty, and funny. It was a really slow build, and it was a longer book and with all the details it sometimes it felt slow paced. But it did really show Catherine's struggles and life in depth' and it made sense due to her issues. It was not a steamy or sexy book, but it had some swoon and a couple of surprises. It had some good messages about being brave, taking risks, and living a full life. And also about judgment, tolerance, acceptance, and generosity. It was really Catherine's life journey as she was a woman used to being let down, and then she gets an unexpected chance for love and a life change. But only if she is strong enough and brave enough to take it. Will she get the fairytale or will it fade?

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review. 
Catherine had a moment of notoriety in high school and still lives with the scars. She strives to keep her head down, raise her daughter, and work hard. On her way home from yet another lackluster attempt at dating, Catherine finds herself acting the good samaritan, saving a man’s life. She doesn’t know who the man is at the time, and she couldn’t predict the ways her actions will change her life.

Brett Madden, a famous hockey star, was lucky to survive the accident. He struggles with the recovery process and just wants to thank the woman who saved him, if he can track her down. She doesn’t want to be found, but he needs to meet her to continue on his road to health.

I loved Catherine’s whole take on learning Brett’s identity. She was so scarred from her previous media attention that she doesn’t want anything to do with the reporters, cameras, and attention that will swarm if her identity is revealed. As readers learn more about her past experience in the media spotlight, her reticence and standing in the community make more sense.

Brett is an interesting mix of confident, caring athlete and wounded, scared victim. He is used to being in control and getting what he wants. He is also one of those guys who is a genuine caretaker. He struggled with the changes and uncertainty he faced due to the accident and I loved watching him find comfort with Catherine and her daughter.

There were times this story felt a little on the long side. But once the two characters had their fateful meeting and Brett’s recovery began, I was hooked on the story. Even once they met, things didn’t move quickly between them. Catherine is much too set in her individual ways to fall for a man, even one with as many resources as Brett. I loved watching as they learned to lean on one another and even turn to the other in crisis situations.

I both loved and loathed certain of the side characters. Each person in Catherine’s life has their own agendas for the way they interact with her, and I couldn’t help but be surprised by some of the things we learn about the surrounding situations and characters. As the story continues to unfold and past scenes paint a better picture of what happened and why, I found myself fully engrossed in Catherine and Brett’s present.

This was a long, slow burn of a book. It pulled me in and kept me chasing after those missing pieces I knew had to be just out of reach. It felt a bit lighter than some of the author’s other works, but part of that was the additional of Brenna to many of the scenes. This was a great piece about moving beyond the past, facing challenges, and learning to trust.

The second book in a laugh-out-loud new contemporary romance series from Alison Bliss!

Big girls don't cry. They go after what they want.

Thanks to her bangin' curves, Valerie Carmichael has always turned heads-with the exception of seriously sexy Logan Mathis. Just Valerie's luck that the object of her lust-filled affection is also best friends with her overprotective brother. But Valerie's determined to get Logan's attention . . . even if it means telling a teeny little lie to get a job at his new bar. 

Logan can't remember a time when Valerie didn't secretly fuel all his hottest fantasies. Now the curvaceous she-devil is working behind his bar, tempting him every damn night. It's only when he finds Valerie's naughty things-to-do list that Logan decides to break every rule in the book-by making each red-hot deed a reality. 

No one warned them that they were going to fall this hard. And no one warned them that sometimes the smallest secrets can have the biggest consequences. 


Valerie Carmichael is a vivacious, confident, party girl with curves. She never has a problem getting male attention. But the one man she never could have, just returned to town. Logan Mathis is her older brother's best friend and her long time crush. And he is back in Granite, Texas after an eight year absence. Logan is the one man that drives her crazy by making her react, frustrating her, or hurting her feelings. He jumps to conclusions, riles her up, and then avoids her.

But she has no idea that Logan suffers from the same affliction she does...wanting the one you can't have. He is loyal to her brother and understands that Valerie always has been and will be off limits to him. He does not want to risk his friendship, and he also does not feel worthy of her. He also has some other things going on in his life like starting up his new bar and trying to help his mother. He really does not have time to be distracted by the girl that drives him nuts. But when he needs help at the bar and she won't take no for an answer, he will have no choice but to co-exist with her.

Logan tries all the tricks for denial, resistance, and avoidance, but his jealousy, possessiveness, and need for control is going to be tested to the breaking point. The teasing, taunting, and push and pull adds to the sexual tension.  And once they finally break, it is all the way. Their forbidden flirting and attraction flames into a hot secret affair. Their teenage crushes have continued into adulthood with lust and unresolved feelings. But they not only have to keep it a secret from her brother, but now they are also in a boss and employee situation.

It is refreshing that Valerie is a curvy girl but never focuses on her weight. She wears tight, sexy clothes and heels and is comfortable in her own skin. She is a great combo of sassy, smart, and sweet. And Logan is so enamored of her that he sees her as too good for him. Usually it is the overweight girl with the insecurities and not the tall, sexy man. He is always trying to make up for past mistakes, but he is caring and protective of those in his life. But he is a bit overwhelmed and in over his head at times. 

They are living in a lie, but they are also not telling each other everything either. And little white lies can blow up in big ways.  Fear of discovery, guilt, and insecurities impact them. And when it is all out in the open, they are going to have to decide to either to fight for their chance or just give up. 

This is a forbidden-best-friend's-little-sister-second-chance-romance with humor, heart and passion. There were a few things near the end that bugged me a bit, but overall it was a sweet, fun, and engaging read.  It can be read as a stand-alone, but I enjoyed getting more with Leah and Sam (Size Matters) and seeing a bit more progression in their relationship. Sam's friend, Max is also back in this book, and Valerie's brother, Brett is featured. I am interested to see if either Max or Brett will be the hero in More to Love.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review. 

This is another book where the ending killed it for me. 

On the Plus Side was a cute read, quick and fluffy. 

I really liked Val and Logan, but there were moments the two of them annoyed the ever living daylights out of me. I hate, hate, hate when characters don't communicate, bringing a whole lot of contrived drama to the story. I also strongly dislike when a character can't admit to being wrong and continuously blame it on the other person. 

Outside of these two issues, this was entertaining. Logan, when he wasn't being a douche bag and running over her each time she tried to talk, was a complete sweetheart. A contradiction to those moments that made me want to slap him-HARD-upside the head. When he wasn't being so damn pig headed, I loved him. Even in the end when most would have thought he over reacted. 

Val was fun. A vivacious, spitfire who went after what she wanted, which was Logan. Our girl was so full of life and her loyalty knew no bounds. There was so much to like about her strong character; however, there was also some very major characteristics that made me not so keen on her. She took things a bit to far at the end. And I felt, she totally deserved Logan's anger. 

Anyway, if you are looking for a cute read, with light angst, than this is the book for you. Despite the few struggles I had, I finished this book in one sitting. So that is an added plus! I don't do that much lately. 

P.s. Val's brother tends to be a bit overbearing. A tad bit over done.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review. 
Valerie Carmichael needed a drink. A strong one. Because it was the only way she envisioned herself getting through the night.
An elbow nudged into her side, bringing her thoughts back to the crowded bar. “I can’t see anything through all of these people,” Brett said, scanning the room with his eyes. “Come on, let’s go to the other side so I can get a better view.”
Sighing, Valerie trudged behind him without a word.
When Brett had asked her to attend the grand opening of Bottoms Up, a new bar in their hometown of Granite, Texas, she’d hesitated to say yes. Sure, she was curious what the inside of the recently remodeled bar looked like and had no doubt the place would be jam-packed with handsome, available men. But it was still the last place on earth she wanted to be.
She knew better than to hang out in bars with her older and only—thank God—brother. Every time she’d done so in the past, the nights had always ended the same way. Brett would spend the entire evening hovering over her like a rabid pit bull, daring any single guy with a glint in his eye to look her way. Because Valerie turned heads. She always had.
Oh, she wasn’t silly enough to believe she looked like some gorgeous supermodel with a lean, trim figure or anything. She definitely didn’t. But she had a pretty face, banging plus-size curves, and a lively personality. And that was good enough for her. Valerie was just…Valerie. And damn proud of it.
Across the room, Sam and Leah emerged from the dense crowd, with a beer bottle for him and a glass of water for her. Apparently, Leah was still on that damn diet and counting calories so she would fit into her wedding dress. Though why she didn’t just buy the dress in a larger size was beyond Valerie.
Leah blinked at the sight of her. “Val? What are you doing here? You said you weren’t coming.”
Valerie shrugged. “I changed my mind.”
“Are you feeling okay?”
“Yeah, sure. Why?”
“When you said you didn’t want to go out, I assumed you were sick. You never turn down a night out.” Leah placed her palm lightly against Valerie’s forehead. “You sure you don’t have the flu or something?”
Valerie laughed and pushed her friend’s hand away. “Oh, stop it. I just didn’t feel like getting dressed up. I’m getting tired of the whole bar scene.”
Then Valerie’s heart stopped, along with her lips. Oh God.
Brett stood there talking to a tall, dark-haired man who had one thumb hooked in the front pocket of his jeans while he leaned comfortably against the wall with his right shoulder. She couldn’t see the other guy’s face, but she didn’t need to. Valerie recognized all six feet, two inches of him. Logan Mathis.  

The rules of (fake) engagement . . .

Leah Martin has spent her life trying to avoid temptation. But she's sick of low-fat snacks, counting calories, and her hyper-critical mom. Fortunately, her popular new bakery keeps her good and distracted. But there aren't enough ├ęclairs in the world to distract Leah from the hotness that is Sam Cooper - or the fact that he just told her mother that they're engaged . . . which is a big, fat lie.

Sam sometime speaks before he thinks. So what started out as defending Leah's date-ability to her judgmental mother soon turned into having a fiancee! Now the plan is to keep up the fake engagement, stay "just friends," and make Leah's family loathe him enough to just call the whole thing off . But Sam has an insatiable sweet tooth, not only for Leah's decadent desserts but her decadent curves. Her full lips. Her bright green eyes. Yep, things aren't going quite according to plan. Now Sam has to convince Leah that he's for real . . . before their little lie turns into one big, sweet disaster.

Zane Larson has done everything he set out to do: conquered past demons, saved lives through his music, and toured the world as the frontman for one of the most popular rock bands in the world. This life—and an escape through music—was supposed to be everything he’s ever wanted, but after meeting Rowan, Zane’s no longer sure…

Soon after her husband’s death, Rowan Dugas learned she was pregnant. With grief and uncertainty her only companions, Rowan was only able to find an escape through music; specifically Zane Larson’s hypnotic voice. But after meeting the sexy lead singer of her favorite band, Rowan can hardly believe he’s interested in her. But Zane also has a painful connection to her unborn child - Zane's brother is responsible for her husband's death.

Torn between the only family she has left, and a life with Zane unlike anything she’s dared to dream about, Rowan’s decision will change her fate forever.


SMP Swerve

ISBN: 9781250126375; Price: $3.99
We met Rowan Dugas and Zane Larson in Raw Deal. Rowan is a young, pregnant widow and Zane is lead singer of her favorite band who also happens to be the younger brother of the man that accidentally killed her husband during a MMA fight. They were introduced at a concert in an attempt to do something nice for Rowan as she struggled to cope, but Rowan and Zane made their own connection. Zane is charismatic, sexy, talented, and was her fantasy crush. And something about Rowan calls to him.

They start as long distance friends, but it soon grows to like and more attraction. But it is really bad timing and Rowan is not exactly in a good place for any relationship, much less one with a rock star. But they have a hard time getting the other off their minds. They are both guarded due to the tragic circumstances they have lived through. But they keep cracking the others' veneer and building their connection.

Zane keeps getting deeper and deeper, but says he is willing to wait. He is patient, protective, generous, and actually listens to her. Rowan has fears, insecurities, and guilt. She is not really living for herself and needs to find her own purpose and anchor.  He's an active rock star traveling around and his base is in Houston. She is pregnant and still reeling from loss and lives in New Orleans near her deceased husband's family. They live complicated lives from two different worlds. There is also external resistance from various sources putting pressure on them and causing issues.

Rowan needs to reclaim herself before she can give enough to someone else. But she has been stuck in limbo, hurt, angry, and frustrated. Zane makes her happy and gives her hope, but also scares her and makes her worry. Everyone wants to make decisions for her and her life is out of control. Zane knows he cannot save her until she is ready to make a stand and save herself. But he has such a big heart and is affected by her choices. There is quite a bit of push and pull, fear, guilt, and angst. I totally loved Zane. I got a bit frustrated with Rowan, but given the situation, it was understandable. It all happened pretty fast considering she was a new widow and dealing with pregnancy alone.

This had a unique premise and it was sweet, sexy, and emotional. A rock star with a heart of gold who has had his own share of struggles and a woman whose life was ripped away from her and left her facing an uncertain future with a big responsibility. It is about compromise, priorities, hope, healing, new beginnings, and shifting futures. It is told in dual points of view. It brings back his brothers Mike and Damien, her sister-in-law Savannah and her family, and Zane's bodyguard Jase. Savannah and her family made me want to pull my hair out at times during this one. But the characters are well developed and they have complex histories and motivations. I am looking forward to Damien's book, Raw Heat.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review. 
Rowan Dugas imagined she would be married to Tommy forever, but now he is gone and she has to figure out how to continue on for the baby she is carrying. Her sister-in-law introduced her to Zane Larson, her favorite front man, as a way to cheer her up. Unexpectedly, Rowan and Zane strike up a long distance friendship as Zane tours with his band and Rowan continues to deal with Tommy’s death.

Zane Larson has everything he thought he wanted: his career is booming, he is traveling constantly, and has fame and fortune. But as he builds a friendship with Rowan, he begins to wonder if there is something he didn’t know was missing.

These two strike up an unlikely friendship that builds into something deeper though neither intends it.

Zane is such a gentleman. He has his own baggage, but has done most of the unpacking already. Addiction and his past have taught him many lessons already. He is drawn to Rowan, but willing to move at her pace as she deals with her own troubles. He knows he cannot solve her problems for her, but is willing to wait until she finds her own way through them.

Rowan has a lot to deal with on her own and a lot of learning about herself to do after Tommy’s death. She has help and suggestions from everyone around her and at times has a hard time making herself heard over the opinions and demands of everyone else in her life. I loved that Zane quickly became a judgement free zone for Rowan to vent and just be herself.

His fame is a lot to deal with though, and even seeing a tour first hand doesn’t take away the fear of the unknown. And is tour life really the place to raise her future child?

I wasn’t a fan of Rowan or her mother-in-law in Raw Deal. I have a hard time with the family dynamics in this series. It felt like Rowan and Savannah switched places between these two books and everything Rowan said or did regarding Savannah and Mike, was said by Savannah here. I know they are all dealing with a lot of high emotions, but some of the family interactions frustrated me to no end.

This was a sweet, emotional read as Rowan deals with her grief, her pregnancy, and her unexpected feelings for Zane. I loved getting both points of view, and felt like the balance kept the story moving along nicely.

Zane took her hand and helped her from the car after opening her door. He’d done that all night, and while she hadn’t needed it, she found she loved it. He didn’t let her go even as they strolled up the walkway to her front door, pausing on her front porch. She missed the warmth of his hand immediately when she had to dig her keys from her purse.
Except for hugs from family and friends, it had been a while since anyone touched her. Until tonight.
It had been much longer since anyone had awoken the kind of feelings she was experiencing right now, the zinging along her nerve endings, the weakness in the fronts of her thighs that she suspected had nothing to do with emotion and everything to do with him.
It’s okay, she thought, desperate to keep her eyes down on her task of digging in her purse though her keys were right there in sight, glinting under her porch light. He’s my fucking celebrity crush, of course I’m going to respond. It doesn’t mean anything.
“I want to kiss you,” he said, and she sucked in a breath and looked up at him in astonishment, keys forgotten. He was so close, so beautiful, something that could have formed from the surrounding shadows to steal her heart away. “But I won’t.” Even as reason coupled with disappointment flooded her, her involuntary reaction was to wet her lips. She could swear he noticed the response; his eyes darkened. “Unless you want me to.”
She did. God help her, she did. But . . . “It can’t mean anything,” she whispered.
“It doesn’t have to.”
She could do that, right? Just a kiss. A onetime, once-in-a-lifetime kiss. Maybe she was wrong and the chemistry wouldn’t be there. She would know it once and for all, no wondering “what if” after he went back home, no staying up nights imagining what he tasted like, knowing she’d had her chance to find out and refused it. “Okay,” she said, but since she figured he could barely hear her trembling voice, she nodded as well.
He stepped in. Rowan nearly jumped when the tips of his fingers tilted her chin up to receive him; he touched her nowhere else. At least not until he leaned forward, nestling his nose next to hers as his lips caught hers gently, sweetly. A shiver worked along her spine, raising the hair at her nape.
So much for no chemistry.
She wanted to open, to invite him deeper, but even as his fingertips slid toward her ear until he cupped her jaw in his palm, he only teased at her lips with his own. A touch, a brush. The sweetness of their shared dessert a ghost on his breath, he didn’t quest for any sort of entry, so careful not to do so that something broke in her weakly thudding heart, flooding her with heat.
Oh, fuck.
“His other hand grasped the doorframe beside her head; his beard tickled her delicate skin. Rowan’s hands ached to crawl up his body, but she clenched them tightly at her sides against the need, her nails biting crescent moons into her palms. This, just this. It was all she had to give right now.
Zane pulled away only slightly, his warm breath soft against her tingling lips. He’d barely touched her, barely even given her that taste of him. She wanted more, longed to drag him to her and take it, but when he stepped back, she had to let him. The tip of his thumb traced the line of her jaw all the way to her chin as he drew his hand away.
