Cover Reveal: DEREK by Dawn Martens


Rylie Sullivan hasn’t had an easy life. She is broken, so broken she doesn’t think she will ever be fixed. When she meets Derek, he barges into her life and tries to break down the walls she has so carefully construed to keep what’s left of her safe. When Rylie’s past mixes with her present, will Derek stand by her and help her survive? Or will he bail for the next pretty thing?

Derek Tremaine has had it easy. Coming from a wealthy family and blessed with good looks, Derek has breezed through life. After years of one night stands, and a few half ass attempts at relationships, Derek has almost given up on ever finding the woman for him. When he sees Rylie however, he can’t help but be drawn to her. Rylie is different, more so than any other person Derek has met. Rylie’s beauty- her tattoos, piercings and beautiful blonde dreads drew him in, but it’s her sweet, kind nature that makes him want to stay around and protect her. Winning Rylie’s heart will be his greatest challenge yet, but Derek knows the reward will be more than worth it.
Which is why Derek has no intentions of letting her go.

The Arrangement 9 by H.M. Ward




When Avery finds out that the cowboy who requested her services for the night is Marty, things take an unexpected turn. If Avery declines her friend, she'll be in trouble with Miss Black, but if she accepts-this could mean a new, normal relationship and saying farewell to Sean forever.


When reading each installment of this series, I always wonder how H.M. Ward is going to keep me going and give me that "shock" value.  She does not disappoint!  Sean and Avery are separated at the end of the last book and Cassidy shows up to a hotel room only to find her best friend, and wannabe love interest Marty, as her "date" for the night.

Avery  realizes that her heart belongs to Sean and she knows that she can't live without him.  Can she work up enough nerve to approach him and ask him to marry her, knowing that he doesn't believe in the sanctity of marriage? Can she convince him that marriage is worth the sacrifice?  "Its woven together, string by string, just like life.  Sometimes it seems like those little threads snap and we're left hanging.  Marriage weaves them together, so even if one string breaks, there are others to hold us up."

Before she can leave to confront Sean about her feelings, Miss Black sends Avery on a mandatory date.  Little does she know that this will not be a conventional evening.  How will her actions during the ensuing date impact not only her job with Miss Black, but her future with Sean?

I just can't get enough of these books!  I am addicted!!  When I found an opportunity to receive an ARC, I literally jumped at the chance and squealed with joy!  I read the entire installment in one sitting without taking my eyes off of my kindle.  I am dying for the next book to be released so I can see where H. M. Ward takes Sean and Avery's steamy relationship.  Bring it on....I'm ready!!! - Kelly

Driven by K. Bromberg

Driven (The Driven Trilogy, #1)


Rylee Thomas is used to being in control. But she’s about to meet the one man that just might make her enjoy losing it…

I am the exception to the rule. 

In a world full of willing women, I’m a challenge to the roguish and achingly handsome Colton Donavan. A man used to getting exactly what he wants in all aspects of life. He’s the reckless bad boy constantly skating that razor thin edge toward out of control, on and off of the track. 

Colton crashes into my life like a tornado: sapping my control, testing my vulnerabilities beyond their limits, and unintentionally penetrating the protective wall around my healing heart. Tearing apart the world I rebuilt so carefully with structure, predictability, and discipline.

I can’t give him what he wants and he can’t give me what I need. But after a glimpse beneath his refined exterior into the dark secrets of his damaged soul, can I bring myself to walk away?

Our sexual chemistry is undeniable. Our individual need for complete control is irrefutable. But when our worlds collide, is the chemistry enough to bring us together or will our untold secrets and battle of wills force us apart?


What a RIDE!!!  I just loved this book!

Rylee reluctantly agrees to a dating auction to support a good cause.  Something that is completely not in her comfort zone, but for the kids she loves, she’ll do anything.  Colton,  a playboy with a reputation for love them and leave them, buys her date.  Despite the instant attraction, she is determined to not let him get to her.

The ride from there is full of bumps and sharp turns, and your emotions are all over the place.  One minute you love Colton, and the next,  you hate him.  But you cannot deny their chemistry.   Rylee is still dealing with guilt from a tragic end to her engagement.  She isn’t a casual relationship type and Colton is definitely NOT the relationship type.  But there is much more to Colton than meets the eye.  His kindness towards the kids Rylee works with is unexpected and she slowly starts to let down her guard.  As Rylee begins to uncover more of the softness under that cocky attitude, she falls fast.  But Colton has a story in his past that he isn’t willing to share, but it keeps him from being able to trust enough to commitment to anyone.  Is she getting to close for comfort to the real Colton?  Will he let her in or push her away?  

K. Bromberg unraveled their tale perfectly and left you hanging with desire for book 2.  Fueled is scheduled for release in August and I can’t wait!  -Tynna

Damaged 2 by H.M. Ward

Damaged 2 (Damaged, #2)


Home isn't supposed to be dangerous, but for Sidney it is. Returning home means that she has to face her past. It's not just the man who hurt Sidney that makes it horrible, but the family that didn't believe her. They were dead to her, but now that her mom is really dying things seem different. It's a chance to set things right.

What Sidney doesn't realize is that she's dragging Peter into a collision course with his past. Peter must deal with the demons haunting him if he wants to move forward with Sidney. He's willing to give up everything for her, even wade deeper into his past life to help her move forward. But, Peter isn't sure if he can get over what happened to him in New York.

From the first page of Damaged, I was captivated in the story of Peter and Sidney.  At the end of the book, I was depressed because I wanted more!  H.M. Ward did not disappoint in Damaged 2!  The transition from the end of the first book was seamless and I was immediately captivated. Peter has resigned his position as a professor at the college that Sidney attends because he cannot deny his feelings for her any longer. One would think that happily ever after would be right around the corner. Think again!

Peter's past is revealed to Sidney while she is dealing with her own personal struggles, and they both now must deal with the repercussions. They must each face their own demons before their relationship can move forward.

 I read this book in one sitting. The storyline is so riveting that I just couldn't put it down!  Revealing Peter's past has opened up new storylines for characters in H.M.Ward's The Arrangement series which will be my next read!  -Kelly

Tangled by Emma Chase

Tangled (Tangled, #1) 

Drew Evans is a winner. Handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. He has loyal friends and an indulgent family. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed?

He’ll tell you he has the flu.

But we all know that’s not really true.

Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. She refuses to let anything - or anyone - derail her path to success. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin. The professional competition she brings is unnerving, his attraction to her is distracting, his failure to entice her into his bed is exasperating. 

Then, just when Drew is on the cusp of having everything he wants, his overblown confidence threatens to ruin it all. Will he be able untangle his feelings of lust and tenderness, frustration and fulfillment? Will he rise to the most important challenge of his life? 

Can Drew Evans win at love? 

Tangled is not your mother’s romance novel. It is an outrageous, passionate, witty narrative about a man who knows a lot about women…just not as much as he thinks he knows. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing he never wanted in life, is the only thing he can’t live without


Hands down the funniest and fun-est book I've read lately.  A story told completely from the man's POV turned out to be insightful and hysterical!  Who would've thought???

I have no idea how Ms. Chase had such insight into a man's mind, but I, for one, could completely believe all of his thought processes throughout the book.  

It was so great to see the progression of Drew from a Man-whore to becoming a completely whipped, in love, can't live without her, would die for her , settle down with one woman type of man. I laughed out loud at his antics and applauded Kate for her strength, and sense of humor through it all.  

" Women fall in love quicker than men. Easier and more often. But when guys fall? We go down harder.  And when things go bad? When it's not us who ends it?  We don't get to walk away.  We crawl. "

Drew could be so sweet, and then make you just want to scream at him in a matter of seconds. The over the top gestures were laugh out loud funny and the mistakes he made, only made you love him more.  You just knew deep down, he would do whatever it took to win Kate's trust and heart.  

Can't wait for more books in this series!  -Tynna
