Second chances never felt so good! Mason Stone can do more than pound a nail in a floorboard.
He’s ready to put his hammer to good use! This one is dirty and delicious and exactly what you deserve! Enjoy!
Xo, Frankie & ChantelHammers and Veils is a series of short and flirty stories sure to make you melt!

Mason

It’s a white-picket fence kind of day on Maple Lane with all the typical clichés you find in every uppity-up subdivision in America. Including some khakis-wearing dad-type watering his yard across the street who raises a brow at me when I pull my twenty-year-old Chevy pickup to a stop in front of my next job.

On the passenger seat is a clipboard with the project details, and I give a harsh grunt when I scan the contact info.

Lola Barrington. Even the name sounds pretentious. Just like this damn neighborhood.

I wasn’t welcome in these parts as a teenager, even now I’m aware of wary glances directed at me, or rather Big Bertha.

My partners at Nailed It Construction have been bugging me for years to trade my baby in for a newer model, but she’s the first thing that was ever truly mine. Sure, she’s got more rust on her back end than paint, but I’ve got no plans of giving her up. Even if it means spending more cash keeping her running than buying a new truck would.

I open the door and grab what I need from the back, which isn’t much since I’m just here to appraise the job. Usually I’m more of the hands-on-guy of the business, but since Eli is off on his honeymoon in Tahiti, I’m going to have to pull a fake smile out of my ass and act like I care if the woman chooses Calacatta or Emperador marble countertops.

“It pays the bills,” I mutter, feeling more comfortable with a hammer in my hand than a damn notepad. “Shit.” I jump back when something hisses at my feet. An orange and white ball of fur races through my legs, darting into one of the nearest bushes.

“No, no, no.” Another blur of color pushes past me, but this one smells a hell of a lot better, like peaches and cream. I’m entranced as the curvy little blonde gets down on her hands in knees searching frantically in the bushes. “Missy, come here, now.”

The cat hisses from somewhere deep in the foliage, even though I know helping would be the gentlemanly thing to do, my cock has grown uncomfortably hard at the sight in front of me.

The woman is crouched over, her perfect ass on full display. The way the faded denim hugs her hips and rides low enough that I catch a small glimpse of pink lace, I know I’m in trouble. One thing I have a weakness for is a nice ass.

Not that I’ve had much action lately. The way the company has taken off recently hasn’t left me with a lot of spare time on my hands. And in all honesty, I’ve started to get tired of the whole meaningless sex thing.

That said, I wouldn’t mind nailing down the sweet little thing who continues to wiggle her ass at me.

“Damn it, Missy, come here.”

“Need some help?” I ask. “I’m here from Nailed It, but maybe you need more than an estimate on the place?”

“Stupid cat got out of the house again.” She starts to stand, brushing off her jeans. I still haven’t seen her face, but I have a feeling I’m going to like it. “This is the third time since—” Her mouth gapes open when she meets my gaze, honey brown eyes widening, and I swear for a second she forgets to breathe.

Not that I’m much better. I’m just as affected by her. The woman is breath-taking. Dark blonde hair, almost the same color as her eyes frame a pixie-like face. With the morning sunlight shining down on her, I can see the soft smear of freckles across the bridge of her nose. She’s wearing hardly any makeup, just a touch of lip gloss on those plump lips that are still parted in a delicious little O.

Lips that I instantly want to devour.

There’s something really familiar about her. And the way she’s looking at me, I have no doubt she feels it too.

“Your pussy seems to need a little TLC,” I say with a smirk, breaking the tension. “What?” Her expression alters between shock and mortification then anger. “How-how dare you.”

“Relax, sweetheart,” I say, crouching down, setting my clipboard aside. “I was talking about your tabby cat.”

Kind of.

“You…you’re…” she stammers over her words as I reach far back into the shrubbery until I feel soft fur. “What are you doing here?”

“Praying your cat doesn’t claw my arm off,” I mutter as I get a good grip on the still hissing creature. Thankfully, its hiss is worse than its bite. I retrieve the cat and stand, surprised when it starts to purr in my arms. “See, she needed to be stroked gently-a little tender loving care. Seems like your pussy likes me.”

“Are you always such a… an ass?”

“An ass who just saved your—”

She holds up her hand. “If you say that word one more time, I’m going to—”

“What word?” I ask, stepping closer, still smirking. I’m starting to enjoy watching her cheeks turn red-she’d probably say it was with indignation, but I think the truth is she’s all hot and bothered. “Pussy?” I wink. “I’ve just always enjoyed the way the word…tastes on my tongue.”

She rolls her eyes. “Can I have my cat back?”

I hand her the tabby and she spins on her heels and starts to walk away. “What? Not even a thank you?”

“Thank you,” she mumbles.

“So did you want to show me the work you need done?” I ask, grabbing my clipboard from the green grass.

“I suppose,” she says, lips pursed.

“Do I know you from somewhere?” I ask, following her up the front steps. “You seem really familiar.”

She pulls open the front door of the large home and narrows her eyes at me, but that flush in her cheeks is still there.

I grin down at her and wink. “Or maybe I just want to know you better.”

She rolls her eyes and lets out a little huff. “God, you’re just like every other guy.”

I watch her cute ass walk inside, knowing she’s wrong about me.

I’m not like most men.

And I’ll prove it to her by the time I finish this appraisal.

3 stars

Like this book, this review won’t be very long.

Mason Stone is in construction, and goes to the home of Lola Barringer to look into a remodel. He recognizes her, but can’t put it together where it is he knows her from. Lola knows Mason anywhere. He was the boy she crushed on in high school, and the boy who broke his heart.

So about 75% of this story takes place IN ONE DAY. And it’s a novella. I had a hard time with the emotion that came out in one day. I wish the authors would have spread the story out a little bit.

As for the characters, I liked them both, especially Mason. He seemed very distraught over the fact that he hurt Lola and vowed to make amends. Lola seemed to forgive and forget quickly, which is commendable, but I don’t know that I would have.

Overall a cute story that was just way too rushed.

Cover Reveal ~ The Red Zone by Amie Knight

TRZ - CR banner.jpg

The Red Zone, an all-new sexy, second chance romance from Amie Knight, is coming May 30th and we have the steamy cover!

The Red Zone FOR WEB.jpg

They say the red zone is the hardest place to score.

But for me, those last twenty yards were my sweet spot.

They didn’t call me Lukas “Last Minute Lucy” Callihan for nothing.

I was at the top of my game…until life sacked me harder than any linebacker ever could.

Losing my mom was devastating and left me as the sole person responsible for my little sister.

Taking care of Ella and juggling my career was like playing the hardest game of my life.

My only saving grace was Scarlett Knox, Ella’s sexy, red-headed, no-nonsense teacher.

She loved Ella. She hated me.

She thought I sucked at this parenting thing, and she wasn’t wrong.

But whenever she was around I got the same earth-shattering, heart-stopping feeling I did when I was only twenty yards from the goal line.

She made me feel like I was back in the red zone, a place I’d never fumbled.

Until now.

Cover Reveal ~ The Trouble with Love by Claire Contreras

TTWL - CR banner.jpg

The Trouble With Love, an all new, contemporary romance by New York Times Bestselling Author Claire Contreras, is coming May 15 and we have the stunning cover!

TTWL-PRINT-FOR-WEB.jpg

Things on my wishlist:

1. Start a new, awesome job
2. Create the perfect dating app
3. Stop dating douchebags

Things that actually happen:

1. Got a job in my dream tech company
2. Created a workplace dating app for said company
3. Was matched Bennett, who happens to own the company and is also my brother’s best friend

They say when it rains, it pours, but this is some serious BS. It doesn’t help that Bennett was the man I had my one last night stand with. It definitely doesn’t help that he seems to want me just as much as I want him. The issue is, he won’t do anything about it, but then we’re forced to attend a tech conference in Vegas and I think it may just be what I need to turn this thing around.

New goal: get my brother’s best friend out of my system by all means necessary.

The Trouble With Love is a standalone contemporary romance.

Release Blitz & Review ~ Dance with Me by Kristen Proby

release blitz banner.jpg

Dance With Me, an all-new novel in her beloved With Me In Seattle Series by New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby, is Live!

Dance With Me AMAZON.jpg

Starla. Just Starla.

She doesn’t have a last name, and she doesn’t need one. Not with that many Grammys on her mantel. Everyone knows her kick-ass, no-holds-barred style of singing, dancing, and living.

No one knows that America’s Sweetheart is still living with the wreckage of four years ago, when her world was torn apart. Losing her fiancé was devastating, but she’s channeled all of that into her music. Closing off her heart opened a hundred new doors.

Officer Levi Crawford, Seattle PD.

For almost twenty years, Levi has been consumed by the law. He eats, sleeps, and breathes work. Not just because he’s a workaholic, but because he loves it. Sure, he doesn’t have time for a woman and barely sees the rest of his family, but it’s a trade he’s always been happy to make.

Until Starla.

Two lonely hearts could learn to beat again, if they’re willing to dance together.

About Kristen:

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

4 stars

MATT MONTGOMERY WAS IN THIS BOOK!!!! Oh my god, I can’t tell you how excited I was to see Matt Montgomery show up in this story!!! He is one of my all time favorite characters and by far, my favorite Montgomery!

Anyway, this story centers on Levi Crawford, a Seattle PD Detective who meets Starla (just Starla), one of the biggest pop singers in the world. They have a one night stand, and end up meeting back up a while later in Seattle, where Levi lives, and where Starla’s best friends live.

In typical KP fashion, Levi is pretty alpha. Which is fine with me, because I love her heroes (see the first paragraph).  Starla has to take a few months off due to exhaustion, and ends up becoming quickly reacquainted with Levi. They have amazing chemistry.

Seeing some of my old friends from earlier in the series was a real treat. The gals, that is. We saw Natalie, Jules and many of the other Montgomery faces, and I LOVED it. More Matt would have been appreciated, but any Matt will do (ok, I promise, I’m done:)

The story has a little drama, with an online stalker, and frankly, I didn’t see the twist in this one coming at all. I thought I figured it out, but no. Nice job, KP.

The story is good,  moves at a good pace, and is full of characters we know and love. Makes a for a fun read in my eyes. I would recommend this one.

Cover Reveal ~ Parental Guidance by Avery Flynn

Parental Guidance, an all-new, sexy and LOL romantic comedy from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Avery Flynn, is coming June 17th and we have the adorable new cover!

ParentalGuidance_1600.jpg

All I want is to play hockey on the Ice Knights, instead, I’m in a viral video for all the wrong reasons and my mom—yes, my mom—has taken over my dating apps. Then, when I think it can’t get any worse, the fates deliver Zara Ambrose, a five-feet-nothing redhead with more freckles than inches and who’d rather be anywhere other than on a date with me.

Now a bet with her friends and my PR nightmare have us both stuck in this go-on-five-dates-with-the-same-person hell situation. But if we band together, we can get the whole thing over with and go on with our lives. It’s perfect! No feelings. No future. No fuc— *ahem* fun. No naked fun.

What could go wrong? Nothing—as long as I remember the rules. Don’t notice the way she looks in a dress. Don’t react when she does that little shivery sigh thing whenever we touch. Don’t think about the fact that she’s never had a toe-curling orgasm that wasn’t self-delivered and just how badly I want to change that.

Five dates—that’s it—and then we go our separate ways. At least, that was the plan.

About Avery

USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staff knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Rule number one for a professional matchmaker?

Don’t fall in love with your client.

I screwed that up when I fell for my best friend, Reid Fortino. He’s gorgeous, successful, and sexy as hell. I figured it would be easy to find him a match—and save the family business at the same time.

But the more time I spend attempting to find the perfect girl, the more I realize how much I want him for my own. What’s the harm if we give in for just one night?

I should have known that would never be enough.

Excerpt
“Grandpa said you wanted to talk to me, so why aren’t you
talking?” Her eyes stay fixed on the floor. He gives her a minute, but she
never replies. “Well, if you don’t really want to talk, then I’ll go, but I
just wanted to tell you to rise up.” She looks at him confused. “It’s our
saying. When things are hard, we rise up. We overcome them. It’s how we got
past you leaving us.” He stands. “You can rise up too, Mom.” My heart breaks
watching the interaction between my son and his mother.
