Meet the Wynns—a hockey dynasty built on family, money, and drama. From USA Today bestselling author Kelly Jamieson, the first novel in a new series is a total win-win.“Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—Carly Phillips

After an injury forced Théo Wynn to give up professional hockey, he turned to his second love: numbers. Now, as the general manager of his grandfather’s NHL team, the Los Angeles Condors, Théo is dying to prove to the rest of his family—especially the brother who betrayed him—that he’s just as successful as the rest of them. If only Théo had a gorgeous woman on his arm to complete the picture. . . .

Lacey Olson needs to get out of Las Vegas right now, thanks to her no-good, crooked brother. When a handsome stranger who’s out partying with friends comes to her rescue in the cocktail lounge where she works, they strike up a conversation that leads to a crazy plan: her leaving with Théo for L.A. tomorrow. A few drinks later, the idea gets even crazier: a quickie marriage that works for both of them.

But back in California, Lacey immediately turns Théo’s precise, well-ordered life into one big beach party. And before long, she’s tempting him with her smart mouth, sexy body, and sunny charm. The last thing Théo needs is a real relationship to distract him. Because he only plays to win. . . .

Release Blitz & Review ~ Advice from a Jilted Bride by Piper Rayne

 

 

What’s a girl to do after being ditched at the altar by text message? That’s right. Text. Message.

How does she pick up the pieces and move on? I’m no Dear Abby but here’s a little free advice…

Advice #1 – First, purge your apartment of all things him—by tossing his belongings off the balcony.

Advice #2 – Do not, I repeat do not, throw anything out into the hallway because you’ll injure your hot new neighbor.

Advice #3 – When said neighbor brings over Chinese Food do not let him stay and keep you company. It’s awkward when you realize he’s your boss.

Advice #4 – Accept his offer to help you with your side business but think twice before using a date to his sister’s wedding as collateral.

Advice #5 – Investigate who your mystery neighbor really is. Don’t trust his word even if he’s the world’s best kisser.

If you listen to nothing else, pay attention to that last one. It’s the most important and will save you a lot of heartache.

I LOVE, and I mean LOVE, series about families. They are my jam, so when I saw this book was about a family of NINE!!!, I was super excited. And while I liked Advice from a Jilted Bride, I didn’t love it, and it’s because of how long it was.

Brooklyn Bailey gets left at the altar by her douchebag fiance, and goes home to throw all his clothes and possessions out the window. While flinging possessions, she accidentally hits her new hot neighbor, Wyatt.

Wyatt just moved to Alaska to take over a hotel his father owns, and only plans to stay for a year. He slowly becomes friends with Brooklyn, then realizes that he is her boss. Despite their feelings for one another, they decide to be just friends, since Brooklyn is still recovering from her broken engagement.

On the side, Brooklyn makes essential oils, and Wyatt agrees to help her with her business. In return, she agrees to go to New York to his sisters wedding. At that point, they can no longer hide their feelings.

I very much liked the Bailey clan.  They are all named after the places they were conceived. They were very loyal to each other and very protective. I liked Wyatt as well, but his relationship with his dad was a little strange and didn’t have “closure”, in my opinion.

I’m excited for the next book, I will be reading for sure.

I would recommend this book.

I love hockey series and I love books about families, so when I saw this new series was coming out, I was excited. While I did like this book, I felt overwhelmed at times by the sheer number of characters we were introduced to.

Theo Wynn was a hockey player before his career was cut short by injury. While in Las Vegas, Theo rescues a waitress named Lacey. She ends up losing her job in the melee, but Theo comes to the rescue again by offering a proposal to get her out of Vegas to California.

Some of the story felt a little forced, which I didn’t love, but that will happen when virtual strangers end up together.

This is fun story about two very different people thrown together under special circumstances. I wish it would have been more “on the ice” than off, but I did like Theo and Lacey together.

I look forward to getting to know the rest of the Wynn clan in the next several books.

He wants out of the friend zone…she doesn’t believe in happily ever after.

Relationships are not in Lauren Gentry’s playbook. The only kind she’s willing to consider are friends-with-benefits and even a red-hot and sexy hockey player like Dave Martin isn’t going to change that. Right?

When those chocolate brown eyes threaten to melt her defenses she has to remind herself that demons from her past could rise up at any moment. Which is going to be pretty hard to do, since she loses herself every time they touch.

Dave used to love the benefits that came easily to professional athletes; especially when they were in the form of puck bunnies who only wanted one night. But when he meets the pint-sized girl with bewitching green eyes and sun-streaked auburn hair his outlook suddenly changes.

He wants forever with Lauren. Now he just has to convince her.

Can Lauren risk everything for the man she’s secretly been falling for? Or will her past stop her from taking a chance on love?

Book Blurb:

Presley McDaniel lives her life from moment to moment.

Making permanent decisions means obligation, and that would force her to stop being the family disappointment. Waitress, fitness instructor, dog walker … you name the hourly job and she’s probably held the position.

But when her grandmother can no longer run her book shop in Fawn Hill, a town so small it barely has its own zip code, Presley steps up to help.

The move from bustling city to green pastures may be exactly what she needs to sort out her life. But she didn’t ask for that happy ending to include a gorgeous veterinarian with an all-American smile and a penchant for snuggling puppies. The good doctor is reliable, responsible, and just the kind of man Presley has always avoided.

Love and commitment are predictable.

So why, the moment she lays eyes on him, are they all she wants?

Keaton Nash has never questioned his steady path.

His brothers may tease him about settling into his father’s passed-down role of small town veterinarian, but Keaton has never minded his rural roots. And after tragedy struck two years ago, he has a duty as the eldest Nash man to look after his family.

What he doesn’t need is the sexy, flighty stranger who shows up in town and gets his broken heart beating again. Presley McDaniel is a distraction, a red-headed temptation that is the definition of a bad idea.

He’s barely recovered from the love who left him to chase bigger dreams, and this woman is bound to do the same.

Except for the first time ever, he wants to abandon stability.

She makes him want to be reckless.

I’m a sucker for “returns to small town” books.  I see that and generally I’m hooked. And while I liked this book, I didn’t love it.

Presley McDaniel has moved to Fawn Hill, PA to help her grandmother with her bookstore/UPS store (ok, not really, but they do have a post office type feel). Presley takes her grandmother’s dog, Chance, to the vet when he heats her underwear, and there she meets the hunky town vet, Keaton Nash.

Keaton is the oldest of 4 brothers, and hasn’t fully recovered from his father’s death three years earlier. He feels that he needs to be on top of his brothers (one of whom is pretty dramatic) and doesn’t make much time for himself. Until he meets Presley.

Presley had some drama that was kind of ridiculous and not really well explained. She felt under appreciated her whole life, and that her brother and sister were better than her. Didn’t love this aspect of the story – made her weak and quick to run when the going got tough.

Keaton’s need to take care of his family above himself was also a little over the top. Both Keaton and Presley acted like children at the end, and I didn’t love it. The epilogue somewhat made up for it, but the ending was not great.

I am excited, however, to read brother Bowen’s book, which is next. Very intrigued by his story.

Overall, this was a pretty decent story. Would recommend.

Cocky and
self-assured, I’m confident when it comes to my skills both on stage and in the
bedroom. Everything in my life is perfect, even if I am the last single man
standing in our famed rock band.

But it wasn’t always
this way.

Jayla knew me before
I hit it big. Back when I was a skinny teen, chasing dreams without a penny to
my name. Now she’s back in my life and so much more than the girl I remember.
Fiercely loyal, beautiful and badass. She walked out of my life before, and I
won’t let that happen again.

They say some songs
are better on the second take, and if there’s one thing I know for sure, this
is our time for a replay.

Replay is the fourth

standalone.

Excerpt

I tip my chin up, letting my head fall back against his
stomach. I catch his grin and let my own lips curve up playfully. Or at least,
it starts that way. Under the heat of his stare and with his hands still moving
across my shoulders in deep, sure circles, my body tenses for an entirely
different reason.

His touch feels intimate.

The way he’s studying me from beneath those dark lashes is
intense. He doesn’t look away, and I couldn’t if I tried. “Honestly, Jay, what
can I do? You shouldn’t carry all this stress.”

“I—” want you to touch me. The words catch in my
throat and hammer in my chest. My pulse gallops and I press my legs together as
the need between them—the need for him—obliterates any rational thought.

I almost say those words aloud.

By the heat in his stare, I wonder if he feels it too.

“Jay,” he whispers. My name on his lips is full of the same
tortured longing I feel down to my core. We barely scratched the surface of
this sexual tension when we were teens, both too young and too naïve to fully
understand the power of it.

Now. Right here. I swear those same feelings have multiplied
and grown. It’s overwhelming. Terrifying as hell. And yet . . . I can’t help
but arch my back even more. I delight in the way his gaze drops to the neckline
of my shirt.

His eyes zero in on my chest and his touch becomes feather
light as his stare takes in the hard peaks of my nipples straining against the
soft cotton fabric. I want him to touch me there. To haul me off this chair and
into his arms. I need to taste his lips as they press against mine. Crave it.

“I have an idea,” he whispers so softly that if I weren’t
watching his lips I would have missed the words.

“Yeah?”

His hands brush along my arms, down to my elbows and then
back up, his fingers so close but not touching the swell of my breasts. “It’s
selfless on my part, because you know how giving I am.” He’s teasing. Joking.
But it doesn’t kill the chemistry that swirls between us. If anything, it only
adds charge to an already building momentum.

His hands feel good, but they’re not enough.

“Your idea?” My gaze waits for his.

“I want you, Jayla.”

“Oh.” Heat pools in my belly. My skin feels flush. And my
body, my body wants this and everything he wants to give.

His hands slide up the length of my neck, then still as they
cup my face. “I’ll make you feel better. I swear.” He tilts my chin up and my
back arches in response. His body leans down over mine, slowly closing the
space between our mouths.

“I don’t think that’s a good idea,” I murmur, completely
fascinated by the heat in his stare, and the way his tongue swipes across his
lips.

“Let me kiss you at least?” He lowers his mouth, his intent
as clear as his words. “I’ve been dying to taste those lips. To see if they’re
still the same.”

“Um . . .” I should feel caged in. Between the chair and the
table, his hands near my throat and his body behind mine, I expect my anxiety
to ruin this moment. Only it never comes. Instead, desire and attraction so
powerful flood my veins. I almost reach up and grab for him.

“One kiss?” He bends, closing the remaining space until
there isn’t more than shared breath between us. All I need to do is close the
space, to nod my consent, and his lips will crash on mine.

3 1/2 stars

Austin is a rocker in a very popular band called Three Ugly Guys (hate the name). He is reunited with Jayla, a friend from his childhood, and the girl he let get away, and decides this time, he’s not letting her go.

Turns out that Jayla does professional security, and due to a threat to Austin from a former band mate, he hires Jayla to work for him. We got a first hand account of what it’s like to be on tour with a band, on a tour bus, and it felt like we were there.

I felt that Austin was pretty immature in the beginning of the book. I didn’t love him as much as I’ve loved other heroes. I liked Jayla, but didn’t feel a really strong connection to her.

Overall, this was a cute read and I would recommend it.
