Pretending had always been so easy for Shane…until
Janelle moved in next door.

Janelle was excited to be starting a brand new chapter in
her life. But her eagerness quickly plummeted when her new neighbor stormed
over with his arrogance and attitude. And now, just the sight of him made her
blood boil.

Just as she thought she knew exactly what kind of man
Shane Anderson was, he blindsided her and left her speechless.

Turns out, she didn’t know him at all…

She quickly realized that the man he pretended to be was
nothing more than a Paradox.

Excerpt
“Shh.” I look up at Slate with an arched brow, about to ask him what the
hell he was shushing me for, and found him looking off toward my neighbor’s
yard. “Don’t want to wake the devil.” The words were in a hushed tone, but with
the openness of the yards, and the silence of the night, it did nothing to hide
the conversation taking place next door.

I see Slate lift his hand to cover his mouth just before his shoulders
begin to shake with the laughter he’s attempting to hide.

The voices belong to two females, and I’m surprised by my feeling of
relief knowing that she doesn’t have some guy over sharing an intimate night.

“That man is hellishly evil.” I lean in closer, doing my best to hear as
the humor of the situation seeps in and I too feel a smile tugging at my lips.

“Be quiet.” I recognize the voice immediately as the sassy girl I’ve had
a standoff with a time or two—my neighbor. “Don’t move, laugh, or even breathe.
Otherwise the dragon will come flying out shooting fire from his nose.”

“I swear he has a two by four stuck up his ass.” They break out into a
fit of giggles, and if I’m not mistaken, it appears as though they may be a
little tipsy.

Slate lowers his hand, showing off the grin still on his lips. “You made
a couple enemies, it seems.”

Lifting my hand, I flip him off and instantly think of the blonde with
gorgeous eyes using that same gesture toward me only days ago.

“Do you think he’s gay?”
My smile falters.


“Who knows?” It is hard to distinguish between the two voices. “What I do know is no matter if he prefers the bratwurst or
the bun, he needs to get laid.”
Leaning over, I place my beer on the ground next to my chair and attempt
to stand when Slate stops me. “Dude, please don’t break this up. It’s too
funny.”

“For you maybe.” The woman thought I was gay. I definitely prefer the bun
over the brat.
Even if it has been a long-ass time since I’ve gotten any.

alfal - RB banner

“A sexy, heartwarming read!” —Elle Kennedy, New York Times bestselling author

A Lie for a Lie, an all-new sexy second chance romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is available now!

Hunting-A Lie for a Lie-28155-CV-FT

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series comes a romantic comedy about instant attraction, second chances, and not-so-little white lies.

Sometimes I need an escape from the demands, the puck bunnies, and the notoriety that come with being an NHL team captain. I just want to be a normal guy for a few weeks. So when I leave Chicago for some peace and quiet, the last thing I expect is for a gorgeous woman to literally fall into my lap on a flight to Alaska. Even better, she has absolutely no idea who I am.

Lainey is the perfect escape from my life. My plan for seclusion becomes a monthlong sex fest punctuated with domestic bliss. But it ends just as abruptly as it began. When I’m called away on a family emergency, I realize too late that I have no way to contact Lainey.

A year later, a chance encounter throws Lainey and me together again. But I still have a lie hanging over my head, and Lainey’s keeping secrets of her own. With more than lust at stake, the truth may be our game changer.

5 stars

Wow. You’ll need to have the tissues ready for this book, because it is very heavy and packs all the feels.

Dawn Miller and Mark Adams are best friends – with benefits – who happen to be in love with one another. Neither one of them have told the other how they feel – and Dawn is about to – until tragedy strikes, and she’s no longer able to (at that point).

I won’t go into the tragedy, because it’s a spoiler, but I will say it’s very well written. You felt for the characters so much through every aspect of this book.

I can’t gush enough praise on the hero, Mark. Oh. My. God. He deserves it all. What an amazing character. He stuck through everything with Dawn (and there was A LOT to stick with her through). Such an alpha, but at the same time very loving and kind. I haven’t read a hero like Mark before. Just did the right thing all the time, no matter what. You couldn’t help but love the guy.

Dawn. Dawn was a great character as well. She took what was thrown at her in stride, knowing that Mark was by her side. Watching their journey from friends to lovers was really sweet. And Mark’s parents and family were amazing as well.

All of our friends from book 1 and 2 of the series make an appearance in this book, and they were all there for Dawn during her times of need, proving that the family isn’t always the one you’re born into.

I really love this series and hope that there are many more books to come, because I will read them all!!! I very highly recommend this book.

Blog Tour ~Baking Me Crazy by Karla Sorensen

DB01-BANNER-BT-SBPR

“Friends to lovers at its best– a sweet indulgence I couldn’t put down!” – R.S. Grey, USA Today Bestselling Author

Baking Me Crazy, the first in the romantic comedy Donner Bakery Series of standalones, from Karla Sorensen is available now!

20190718_DB01_Baking Me Crazy_Sorensen_KDP_FINAL

I’m Levi Buchanan, and until five years ago, I thought the legend of my family’s curse was a load of crazy, Southern nonsense.

No curse can make you fall in love at first sight. No curse can force a true, deep, passionate, all-consuming love that will haunt you all the days of your life.

Then I met Jocelyn Abernathy and I realized how completely wrong I was.

The problem is, Jocelyn guards her feelings like well-armed soldier. She’s the most beautiful, stubborn, infuriating woman I’ve ever met. Every time she talks, I want to kiss the living daylights out of her. But I can’t.

Because when we met, she didn’t need true love. She needed a best friend. And that’s what I’ve been to her… for five years.

But when Jocelyn meets a handsome stranger her first day working at Donner Bakery and she lets him buy her a dill pickle cupcake, I realize with ominous regret that I may have missed my window with my best friend.

If I can’t get her to see past our friendship, my new curse may be to watch the love of my life move on with someone else.

‘Baking Me Crazy’ is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, can be read as a standalone, and is book#1 in the Donner Bakery series, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Excerpt:

“Besides, this is my best friend perk. Shouldn’t I get perks in baked goods?”

She cut me a look. “You’ve been getting those perks for two years, Buchanan. Don’t even pretend you didn’t put on a solid ten pounds that first year I started baking.” Quite pointedly, she looked at my stomach, which we both knew was covered in muscle.

“That’s rude,” I mumbled under my breath. I flexed my bicep. Nero licked my elbow since it was right in front of him. “Yeah, ten pounds in my left arm maybe.”

The noise she made roughly translated to you are ridiculous. She made that sound at me a lot. Of course, the sad truth of the matter was that I was ridiculous.

Not once in the past five years had my feelings lessened for her. I had just learned to live with them. In my junior year of undergrad, I was taking a class on brain pathology in injuries, and a man came to talk to us about how he learned to live without his right arm after it was amputated.

He told us about how, even years after he lost his arm, his brain still triggered sensations to the limb that was no longer there. The adult brain, in particular, struggled to reorganize after the loss of a limb, and given that four out of five amputees suffer from phantom pain symptoms, some of which were incredibly debilitating, it was a lesson that stuck with me.

I wasn’t fool enough to think that me loving Jocelyn was on par with a man who’d lost his arm, but something about the way he talked plucked at a chord inside me. Sometimes my brain struggled to remember that we were just friends.

She’d never dated, never even hinted that she wanted to. She’d never given me a longing glance. Never stared at my mouth like she wondered what it tasted like.

But my hands never, not once, stopped wanting to reach for hers. My fingers always, always itched to dig into her crazy hair and see what the curve of her scalp felt like.

My brain knew what this relationship was, but sometimes, the signals it sent to the rest of my body didn’t always match up with the truth of our situation. We worked out together a lot, Joss and I, and when she got frustrated with the limitations of her body, I always wanted to wrap my arms around her.

I wanted to pull her into the curve of my body, absorb her dissatisfaction into my skin, and carry it for her. That was the irony when she made noises like that.

She had absolutely no clue how ridiculous I really was.

About Karla Sorensen

Karla Sorensen has been an avid reader her entire life, preferring stories with a happily-ever-after over just about any other kind. And considering she has an entire line item in her budget for books, she realized it might just be cheaper to write her own stories. It doesn’t take much to keep her happy…a book, a really big glass of wine, and at least thirty minutes of complete silence every day. She still keeps her toes in the world of health care marketing, where she made her living pre-babies. Now she stays home, writing and mommy-ing full time (this translates to almost every day being a ‘pajama day’ at the Sorensen household…don’t judge). She lives in West Michigan with her husband, two exceptionally adorable sons and big, shaggy rescue dog.
