Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

Stella Donovan’s biological clock is a ticking time bomb.
The successful financial manager has spent her adult life building a career and neglecting her personal life. Problem is, she doesn’t believe in marriage. Not after watching her mother be treated like garbage by her father. Nope, marriage is not for her. All she wants is a baby. All she needs is a man to agree to her terms.

Dane Wylder, recently retired NFL tight end and future Hall of Famer, wants a baby.
Naturally, marriage is off the table. He’s not the marrying type. Women are great––as long as they’re trying to get into his bed and not his heart. But after years of living only for himself, he’s ready to be a father.

Sparks fly when a successful financial manager and a legendary football player enter into a legal agreement to have a kid together. They planned on everything––they just didn’t plan on each other.

Review by Barbara


I now understand what reviewers mean when they say a book is a slow burner. At least I feel like I do. Baby Maker is what I would call a perfect example and the author did an amazing job in writing this one. It’s funny, exciting and thoroughly enjoyable watching Stella and Dana’s friendship evolve. 

Stella’s biological clock is ticking and she wants to have a baby, no a spouse, just a baby. She is introduced to a southern, smooth talking ex-football player Dane. Dane is in the same boat, well sorta. He has a Firm Lovem and Leavem Rule, nothing permanent. But he wants to be a father. Dane and Stella couldn’t be more opposite if they tried. The author has written wonderful lines and banter between these two that is just perfect. Sparks fly between these two (and not always in a good way - but funny as heck - at least to me). These two  work out an arrangement on paper that will get them both what they want - a child with no romance or attachments. But Can they stick to it?  Can you seriously co-parent a baby and not get attached?  This is one wild ride. LOVED IT!!!! 

I highly recommend this funny, witty storyline that will leave you happy and smiling. This reader truly enjoyed the authors writing style and look forward to reading more in the future. 2 Thumbs Up to ms. Dangelico for a job well done.


Excerpt


Grabbing the pot of freshly brewed coffee from the coffee maker, he stares into the pot then drinks from it. I don’t bother to tell him it’s decaf. Throat working as he swallows, he holds up his index finger.
I’ve got a finger for him, the middle one.
“I don’t know what’s gotten into you but I’ve had enough.” He continues drinking. “And word of caution, if you come back to New York and continue to treat me like I’m cattle, a possession, you will damage this friendship beyond repair.”
He places the pot down, his eyes downcast as he leans on the counter for support. “I’m sorry…I was a real asshole last night and––”
“Last night?!” I shout. “How about for the past week.”
“Well you’re not helpin’ the situation!” he shouts back, his eyes sparking, then winces again.
My jaw hangs in disbelief. He can’t be serious. Is he really blaming me?
“The hell are you talking about? You’re blaming me? Me?! You’ve been unbearable––when you’ve been around, that is. Usually you’re running in the opposite direction. But somehow in your twisted little male peanut sized brain, it’s my fault?!”
“Yes, goddamit! Dancin’––smilin’ at that fucking cowboy!” His hand slashes through the air as if he’s indicating to someone in the corner. The veins near his temple pop up. Eyes impossibly wide, he advances on me, stopping a mere foot away. “You never smile at me like that!”
Huh? “What does that have to do with anything?!”
“Because I’m jealous! Okay! And you’ve made it very clear you’re not attracted to me but all I can think about is this!”
He’s on me before I can blink, arms crushing me to him, kissing me like I hold the last breath of air on the planet and he means to steal it.
A beat later he stops. His lips against mine he murmurs, “Kiss me back…please kiss me back.”

Meet P. Dangelico

Dangelico loves romance in all forms, cuddly creatures (four legged and two), really bloody sexy pulp, the NY Jets (although she’s reconsidering after this season), and to while away the day at the barn (apparently she does her best thinking shoveling horse crap). What she’s not enamored with is referring to herself in the third person and social media so don’t expect her to get on Twitter anytime soon. Oh, and although she was born in Italy, she’s been Jersey Strong since she turned six.

Release Blitz - Break Down with Review





Title: Break Down (Dublin Rugby #4)
Author: Rebecca Norinne
Cover Designer: Rebecca Norinne
Release Date: February 21, 2018


Blurb

He knows his place on the pitch, but life is a whole other game.

All his life, Liam Donnelly looked and wondered. Could he? Would he? And then, finally, he did. But when he sampled a taste of that forbidden fruit, his whole world came crashing down, his position with Dublin Rugby right along with it. When the chance to ply his trade in Edinburgh comes along, Liam jumps at the offer, knowing it could be his best opportunity to start fresh and get back to the man he once was. But one look at Chef Lachlan MacLeod-his knowing, whisky-colored eyes, the abrasive scruff dotting his jaw, and the colorful ink lining his forearms-and Liam's wondering all over again. Can he? Will he? His heart says no, but his body says yes. 


He's conquered his own demons; can he help another man do the same?

Out and proud Chef Lachlan MacLeod has no problem with who he is, except he has a history of hooking up with bi-curious straight men. He's vowed never to go down that path again, but when Liam Donnelly shows up in his restaurant, his eyes filled with heat and secret longing, Lachlan can't help himself. He knows the closeted rugby player is a terrible idea, but the man calls to him in a way no one ever has before. What started as a safe way for Liam to explore his sexuality quickly morphs into something much deeper, and now Lachlan wants more. But can his heart reconcile what his head already knows-that loving the gorgeous, broken athlete might actually mean letting him go?

Review by Barbara


A very heartfelt touching storyline with a splash of humor and of course romance. The author has written a wonderful book with character that will charm the pants off anyone (especially each other).

Liam is a Dublin Rugby player that is getting older and coming off an injury season and his contract is due. His agent gets him a better deal with the Edinburgh team in Scotland. Liam is torn, he really doesn’t want to leave his home and his buddies he’s played with for year but…. 

You see, while Liam loves women, he has struggled for years with his hidden attraction to men. He’s always suppressed those feelings until one drunken night. A night that was wonderful but turned into a nightmare for Liam the next day. So Liam grabs the chance to leave town, play rugby for Edinburgh and put that night behind him. One in Edinburgh, Liam is convinced that night was a one time weakness, that is until he meets Lachlan, the very successful, sexy, openly gay chef at CAMP Restaurant. Lachlan is instantly attracted to Liam and the two hit it off, becoming friends. The story takes off from here. Liam struggles with his attraction to Lachlan and he tries to fight it for fear of what his rugby teammates would say. As for Lachlan he has made a promise to himself to not be in a closeted gay relationship again for anyone. He has lived that life and it’s not for him. Lachlan is looking for an open honest relationship, something Liam can’t give him. 

This is an amazing story of a man coming to grips with himself as well as those around him. Learning to trust, to accept and live his own life as he sees fit. The trouble is, as Lachlan knows first hand, to accept oneself and to become accepted as an open gay man, takes time. Often years. If Liam decides to take that leap, can Lachlan live in a closeted relationship, which is all Liam can give him? 

2 Thumbs up for a wonderful book that I highly recommend. It’s a great addition to the series as well as a phenomenal story about learning to love, accept oneself and trust those closest to you. Kudos to Ms. Norinne  for a job very well done. I can happily give Break Down a Very Hearty 5 Stars!

Cover Reveal & Excerpt - Tic Tac Love by A.M. Willard


Release Date: March 14, 2018
Cover Design: MadHat Books
 

Synopsis
 
For as long as I can remember, I've been in love with Paxton West. I've planned our wedding in my head a million times. What our babies would look like. How we would grow old together and still play our favorite game— Tic-Tac-Toe.

However, we have one problem. Paxton doesn't believe in true love, soul mates, or happily ever after. Oh, did I also tell you he doesn't want kids? It also means I can't explain to him that he's the only guy for me, or about my—our—current situation. The past started with a game of X's and O's. Then came the miles and miles that kept us apart. Next came tequila shots... They're never a great idea. Now, more than ever, the future scares the crap out of me. If my plan backfires, I could not only lose my best friend but the love of my life. Dang those tequila shots.

Excerpt

Stepping out into the hallway, I head toward my door with my shoes and keys in my hand. All I can think of at this moment is stripping down out of these clothes and face-planting into my pillow where I can sleep the many drinks off. Right as I open the door, I hear the faint ding echoing down from the elevators. Shrugging it off, I enter my apartment and lock up behind me. I guess I find it odd that someone else would be wandering the halls this late or early. I’m never out at this time and have no idea what the neighbors do after I fall asleep. A new male neighbor moved in a few weeks ago. I already had the pleasure of bumping into him while trying to not spill my coffee one morning. I still deny that it was his looks that threw me off.
I drop my keys into the bowl next to the door before heading straight to my room where I lose my heels and strip out of my shirt and bra. Right as I unbuckle my jeans, I hear a faint knock, so low that I’m not sure if it’s my door or a bump against the wall from next door. Knock… knock… echoes again. I grab my shirt from the floor, slide it over my head, and go to investigate the sound that’s causing the hairs on my neck to stand. Rounding the kitchen island, my feet dig into the ceramic tile as the lock on my door twists. I’m frozen in place… Unable to move anything on my body as I hold my breath waiting to see what’s happening. It’s now that my mind races with all the horror movies I’ve screamed at over the years. The ones where the girl is either running up the stairs to hide from the intruder instead of outside to safety. Or where they just stand there as if a target is placed on their chest. Just pick one, because I’m that girl at this moment. My face is frozen, ice coursing through my veins. The hairs on the back of my neck are at full attention as if we are standing to pledge to the flag. My eyes stare straight ahead as the door opens in slow motion. Saying a little prayer, I close my eyes and wait for what’s going to happen next. Fear overtakes me, consuming my body, mind—everything.
“Belle, what are you doing?” I hear his voice, but then I’m afraid to open my eyes. Could it be possible that two people in this world have the same husky voice that makes me weak in the knees?
With my eyes still squeezed shut, my other senses go on high alert. The drop of a bag, the tap-taps of a set of shoes against the tile grow louder and louder as the person gets closer to me. “Belle, open your eyes and breathe before you pass out.”
Slowly, I do as he instructed. That’s the moment that I lean against the counter for support as I thank God that it wasn’t a killer that had a key to my place. Paxton’s face scrunches up as he reaches over for me.
“What were you doing?”
“I thought you were here to kill me; I was bracing myself for the worst.”
“What have I told you about watching those horror movies, huh? You let them get to you, and why would a killer use a key?”
“I don’t know; they could’ve made a copy when I wasn’t paying attention, or it could’ve been the security guard—who knows… What are you doing here?”
“Not the welcome I thought I’d receive, but my plans changed. You were more important to come see.”
I let Paxton’s statement set in before I smile up at him. Stepping closer, I wrap my arms around his neck and breathe him in. The faint hint of the stale airport, his earthy spice, and lemon soothes my nerves.
“Are you just getting home?” he inquires, and I notice his voice hints to a bit of jealousy. That confuses me as he’s never been the jealous type. One to worry about my well-being—yes, but not curious about where I’ve been or with whom.
“I am,” I answer as I pull away from him and step over to the fridge. Opening it up, I grab a bottle of water before glancing back over to Paxton. His hands are gripping the edge of the countertop, face blank not revealing any indication of what he’s thinking. “Want something to drink or eat?” is the only thing that I can think to ask.
“No, I’m good. I think I’m just going to head to bed.”
“Paxton,” I let his name slip from my mouth to stop him. He slows his stride over to his bags, turns to look at me and, before I can say anything else, wanders over to me.
“Belle, get some sleep, and we’ll chat in the morning,” is all he says before placing a kiss on top of my head. I stand here in the middle of my kitchen with a bottle of water in my hand, watching his back retreat from me to the spare bedroom. I’m not sure how long I stand here, confused and unable to move. It’s the sound of the shower turning on that breaks me from my thoughts. Causing me to realize that this isn’t a dream. Instead of sulking from the blow off that I just received from Paxton, I force myself to go to my room. Closing the door behind me, I pad over to my dresser, pulling out a pair of boxers and a top to change into. The sound of the water still running through the pipes on the other side of my bedroom causes my heart to beat faster. I can’t explain the way I feel right now. How I’m confused about what I should be feeling. I’m blaming the amount of alcohol that’s in my system. It’s not like he’s never showered here before. It’s more the fact that he blew off an assignment to come see me. That’s something Paxton’s never done. Work has always come first for him. No matter what, he’s never turned down a job; well, for as long as I known him. My head hits the pillow, but my eyes refuse to close. The wheel’s spinning a million times faster than it ever does. With the water off, the apartment is quiet, and I can hear his footsteps down the hall and how they stop outside my door before going to his. The door clicks shut, finalizing that there won’t be a conversation tonight. Unless I pull a trick out of the old handbook.
I roll over, grab my phone from the nightstand, and power it up for the first time since I shut it off in the elevator. It’s then that I notice the messages from Paxton. I listen to his voicemail and read through his text. I can’t scroll up to where I left the short, clipped response to him canceling this weekend.
Me: Are you okay? I know you’re tired, but something seems off.
I could crawl into bed and lie next to him, but taking the chicken way out of this is better tonight. I don’t trust my mouth, and I’m pretty sure that I’d slip up and say something that I’d regret tomorrow. I’m sobering up, but the way he made my heart restrict tonight from the pain that was washed over his face out of concern for me is causing me to expect the worse. Did he come here to tell me something’s wrong? Was that why he canceled his trip?

Buy The Book





Synopsis



He’s bred to protect.

Tobias Creed likes things done his way, and he likes his women ready to submit. No strings attached. Until the night he meets the one woman who challenges him, practically begging to be taken over his knee.

As a single mom to a child with special needs, Diana McAdams does things her way. She’s in control and doesn't have time for love. Happily-ever-afters aren’t for her.

Then she meets the man who demands her submission...




Review by Barbara


OH MY GOODNESS…. What a wonderful start to a series. The author has given us a wonderful adventure to follow. Her writing style is fabulous, it flows easily an the characters are well defined and soooooo loveable (well the good guys are). As for the storyline, it’s exciting, erotica at it finest but it doesn’t total define the book which is so awesome. 

The read gets to go behind the scenes of a private BDSM club and trust me that part is hot and possibly eye-opening to the true workings of the lifestyle. But again this doesn’t define the book. We meet a strong woman, Diana, who is divorce with a special child, Chad. Her life is dedicated to her work and her child. She has given up on having anyone to help her other than her best friend, Bea. 

The fun starts when Diana and Bea have a girls night out. While a little drunk she spots her ex’s car, a silver Maserati, and decides to key it, VERY BADLY. The trouble is, it’s the wrong car and the owner is the “Caveman” or “Big Bad Dom” that has caught her in the act. Tobias just happens to be the owner of Verge, the very exclusive BDSM club in NYC. So punishing Diana for her actions (both for his car and her verbal comments) is pushing all his buttons. But to top his night off, He has to deal with Diana, His Car and now the police are at his club telling him there is someone out there sexually assaulting women and all signs are pointing to it originating from Verge. 

2 Thumbs Up for an exciting, suspenseful erotic romance that you don’t want to miss out on. It’s the start of what I feel is going to be a great series and I can’t wait to see what happens next with the DOMS of NYC series.

Review by Barbara


What a great read! The author has written a storyline that is both funny yet in-depth, light hearted yet touching and totally hot! After all, it does feature a rock star. But the characters are what drew me in.

Arlo Jone is a sexy rock star that basically has is all, fame, money and women (lots of women). He is also Cocky as all get out and used to getting his way. That is until he meets London. He can feel their chemistry but she wants nothing to do with him.

London is a strong willed woman who was involved in a bad car accident that resulted in the death of her fiancée as well as ended her dancing career. Now she is working working two jobs to save enough money to set up her own photography studio. She meets Arlo under very embarrassing circumstances (LOL) yet she has no clue who he is and wants nothing to do with him. But when she’s offered a large sum of money to be the housekeeper for Arlo and his twin brother, she can’t refuse; she needs the money too badly. 

The banter between these two is great. The situations poor London gets in are hilarious. She challenges Arlo to be a better person but can she trust that he’s trying or is he just pushing so that she’ll be another notch on Arlo’s bedpost? Can London trust that Arlo wants something with just her? Could he be what London needs to move on from losing her fiancée? Loved this story and it’s one I recommend reading. 2 Thumbs Up!
