#MyReview:

This lady can put a smile on my face just by knowing that a new book is coming my way.
Every single one of them can make me smile, dream and have some pretty hot flashes. Lol
I’ve started loving this author’s writing with her sports series and now… Oh boy now…
Just a look at this new cover… Do it…  Do it now and drool.
S. R. Grey is the author I’m talking about and you need to give her a chance.
Fair Catch is her latest release and it’s the second book from the Men of Fall series.
This new book explores the lives of Caleb and Jodi.
And I need to read book 1.
Caleb is a football player that lives for the game. When he’s signed up for a new team he thought that his career wasn’t over but…
Jodi being a wedding planner should believe in happily ever after but nope. She can make everyone’s dreams come true but for her, she’s a bit reserved. When she’s sent Inna blind date…
OH, my word… What was this?
This book is freaking awesome…
Once I started to read it I simply couldn’t outburst down. It was that addictive.
The chemistry these two shares is so intense that will give you some hot flashes. You’ll see once you start to read it.
This book will give you love, loyalty, dreams, desire as well as lies, deceive and so much more.
Each chapter will hook you up even more than the latest. You’ll see.
So I advise you to clean your schedule because starting this book you will only stop when The End appears.
S. R. Grey… What can I say? You nailed it. This series is getting better and better and I can’t wait to read the next book.

Illusion on Ice (Boys of Winter Book 7) by S.R. Grey

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Illusion on Ice

Sports Romance/Romantic Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Secrets can trap you but they can also free you…

Have a look at the blurb:

Confession time:
My name is Noel Sandlund and I play professional hockey–defense to be exact.
I lead a pretty good life. I’m not hurting for money and the ladies seem to like me.
And now things have gotten even better–I think I may have fallen in love.

See, while I was in Sweden playing in the world hockey championships this off-season, I met Maisie Troy.

And, man, she’s it for me.

Confession time:
I’m Maisie Troy.
This summer I met a man who’s everything I’ve ever wanted and more.
His name is Noel and he’s hot and sweet and plays amazing hockey.
I think he could be the one.

Too bad there’s one huge problem–I’m not who he thinks I am.

No, I’m just an illusion.
An illusion that’s about to shatter . . . like ice.

Illusion on Ice is the seventh novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

#MyReview:

It’s here… It’s here… Another book from this lady… It’s here…
SR Grey has given me one of my favorite series and I couldn’t handle waiting for another book. I was almost insane…
Her writing is sweet, intense, wild and passionate. Each book will hook you up in a sec and you will be left wanting more and more… Just trust me.
Illusion on Ice is her latest release and it’s the seventh  book from the Boys of Winter series.
This new book explores the lifes of Noel and Maisie.
But to be able to understand this series better, I tottaly advise you to read the complete series first. You’ll love them all…
Noel is living his dream. He’s a hockey player that loves the sports and his team. One trip to Sweden…
Maisie was left in a foreign country with no way to get to the States. In that trip she meets Noel and their attraction is instantly but secrets…
I’m so in love right now… So freaking in love.
These two were perfect and I wanted to know more about Noel since he appeared in the previous books from this series.
Sublime plot, very well written, super engaging and intense.
We had lies, drama, selfishness as well as love, desire, friendship and so much more. I’m still stunned and oh so happy.
It was amazing to hear from the rest of the gang and I was so sad when it was over.
But don’t let all this fool you because I was mad as well. There were parts of the book that I wanted to hurt someone… But then there were others that I wanted to hold them and promise better days…
Let’s just say that SR… You nailed it again. What’s next on your agenda?

When you have the love of your life near you, everything is possible…

Aubrey….

I’m so excited for my wedding that I can’t stop humming “Here Comes the Bride.” Hey, you’d be happy too if you were marrying hockey’s most eligible bachelor, Brent Oliver. Only problem is the universe seems to be conspiring against us, trying to thwart our big day. How else would you explain a missing bridal gown, an unexpected injury, and a slew of other mishaps?

Will this wedding ever even happen?

Brent….

You bet your ass this wedding is going to happen! Nothing will keep me from marrying the woman of my dreams, Aubrey Shelburne. Not even strippers, my unruly nephews, or a broken ankle can stop me. I’m taking my girl to the altar, damn it. And afterward, I plan to show her a whole new meaning to that song she keeps humming.

Let’s just say the bride will definitely be coming!

Vows on Ice is a hilarious standalone short novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series, featuring all of the couples and an Area 51 appearance!

#MyReview:

It’s been a while since I had a book from this author and I couldn’t be happier. Jesus it was about time.
S. R. Grey has a sweet writting, full of feelings and emotions that will melt your heart. Just see for yourself.
Vows on Ice is her latest release and it’s the sixth book from the Boys of Winter series.
I’ve been following this series and being a greedy girl I always want more. More.
But I totally advise you to read all books in order. You’ll see why.
This book focus on the stories of Brent and Aubrey. You need to read Destiny on Ice first because you need to know how this story started.
This new book take us to their wedding adventure and I’m not saying a thing. I can’t without spoil so…
OMG. My tummy hurts from laughing so hard. The things these two endured to make their dream come true…
I’ve laughed so hard that I almost wet my panties. These characters are hilarious.
Great plot, super engaging and addictive. It was amazing to have news from the other characters from this series. Amazing really…
SR… What can I say? You are magnificent and this series is becoming one of my favorite. Can’t wait for the next book.

Quit Your Pitchin’ (There’s No Crying in Baseball Book 2) by Lani Lynn Vale

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Quit Your Pitchin’

Sports Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

True love is strong enough to battle any fight and get out of there as the winner…

Have a look at the blurb:

What’s wrong with my butt?

She means those words to be directed toward the woman beside her, not him. But he can’t stop himself from answering. Not when her ass is the most magnificent thing he’s seen in his life.

Apparently, answering her with ‘not a damn thing’ wasn’t what she was expecting.

She likely wasn’t expecting the baseball she took to the face at his next at bat, either.

All it takes is one ill-fated foul ball, and George Hoffman, Lumberjacks center fielder, falls head over heels in love with Wrigley Field—and yes, that is her real name.

From that point forward, George and Wrigley fall into a fast whirlwind love that ends with them eloping to Vegas. And he has his potty mouth, titty bar owning, pain in the ass grandmother to thank for it.

Not that he’s complaining or anything.

Who wouldn’t want to be married to a woman that made his heart race like he was in the final game of the World Series?

The only problem is trying to convince her of that.

#MyReview:

I’ve been wanting to read a book from this author for quite some time but other books were pilling up and I didn’t had time to do so, and now that I have an opening I just want to dig in and fall in love.
Lani Lynn Vale has a simple and steamy writing full of feelings and sassyness into the mix. It’s like a breath of fresh air that I didn’t knew I needed.
Quit Your Pitchin’ is her latest release and tells the stories of George and Wrigley. This book is the second book from the There’s No Crying in Baseball series and I advise you to read book 1 first.
Wrigley was taken to a baseball game, against her will, but for her sister she would do everything, and couldn’t imagine the turn her life was about to get when one ball hit her right in the eye…
George is a baseball player that lives and loves this sports. He really enjoys what he does and he’s very good at that. He’s loved but everyone and he just knows it.
I really loved this book. I’m still smiling.
The plot is amazing, very well written, super engaging and intense. Each chapter made me want to keep reading forever and thinking about stopping was out of the picture.
When I started reading this book I thought that it would be a sweet book, with an instant chemistry without any bumps on the road but I was so wrong…
Why do people get happy when they hurt someone? Why are surrounded by greedy people that only want money or something else?
The chemistry between the characters is beautiful despite all the trouble surrounding them and let me just say that I got really mad while reading a few scenes.
I’ve laughed so hard but I’ve also cursed. Jeez… There were parts of the story that I saw myself wanting to hurt someone really bad…
It was like riding a bumpy rollercoaster that I wanted to get out but didn’t want to at the same time. Confusing right?
I’m sad that I haven’t read the first book from this series but I really need to…
Lani this book amazed me. I was instantly hooked and didn’t wanted it to end.. What’s next?

Player on Ice (Boys of Winter Book 5) by S.R. Grey

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Player on Ice

Sports Romance/Romantic Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

When everyone is against you you can’t give up. Fight for what you believe.

Have a look at the blurb:

Jaxon Holland is more than a top-scoring center for the Las Vegas Wolves—he’s also the biggest “player” on the team. Women love him, flock to him, lust for his sculpted body.

Yeah, life is good for this hockey player.

Or it was until lately.

After blowing a key play in what may have been the biggest game of the season, the fans sour on Jaxon. Good thing memories are short, right? Uh, they’re not when a widely popular sports blogger, known simply as Mr. Hockeypants, calls Jaxon out and places all the blame for the loss on him.

Life goes from bad to worse, and Jaxon wants to get away.

Good thing one of his teammates has a beautiful, secluded beach house he can escape to. Sand, sun, surf, and lots of alone time sound good to this disgruntled centerman.

Only problem is the beach house is already occupied—by beautiful and spunky Cara Milne.

Cara and Jaxon are off to a rocky start after an extremely awkward first meeting. Yeah, these two pretty much hate each other. But Jaxon, forever a “player” at heart, vows to win his housemate over.

What he doesn’t know is Cara is Mr. Hockeypants! His worst enemy, the bane of his existence!

And she’s determined that he never finds out.

Too bad keeping a secret is more slippery than ice, especially when you start falling in love with the guy you almost destroyed.

Player on Ice is the fifth standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

**STANDALONE**

**EACH BOOK IN THE BOYS OF WINTER SERIES FEATURES A DIFFERENT SMOKING-HOT HOCKEY PLAYER’S STORY**

#MyReview:

It’s been a while since I had the chance to read a book from this author and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve really loved her previous works and that left me wanting more and more. And let’s not forget the fact that this new book is the continuation of a series I love.
S. R. Grey knows what she’s doing. This series has knock me out and I was anxiously waiting for this new gift. Her writing is hot and wild, with so much meaning and feelings between each chapter. Once you start it’s can assure you won’t be able to stop.
Player on Ice is her latest release and it’s the fifth book from the Boys of Winter series. Dayum… What a series… What a cover…
This book explores the lifes of Jaxon and Cara.
Jaxon had it all, an amazing career on Ice, fame, ladies and money but one bad play and he’s hated by all fans. All that made him want to get away to a secluded place, more specifically a beach. But once he’s in there he’s not the only one…
Cara is a feisty girl determined to succeed. She doesn’t back out from a challenge. She’s a blogger that can work from home so she takes her friend request to go on a well deserved vacations. But she wasn’t expecting running into Jaxon.
This could be a sweet encounter, wasn’t for the fact that she was the blogger who trashed his name after that bad play… And now…
Oh lord, I couldn’t be happier with this book. These two are one of a kind.
The plot is amazing, very well written, super engaging and powerful. The interaction between the characters started bumpy but it changed with every flip of a page.
It was insane the way these two interact with each other. I laughed so hard but I also wanted to hurt someone… Jesus, these two are super stubborn. And the sexual tension between them… Oh boy…
Can secrets become a problem? Can you forgive and forget and go from there?
Fantastic book.
S. R. I missed your books. I’m so glad for the chance to read this one and I can’t wait for the next one.
Will it take to long? Please say no.

Book Review: Long Shot, Kennedy Ryan

KRLongShotBookCover5x8_MEDIUM

A FORBIDDEN LOVE SET IN THE EXPLOSIVE WORLD OF THE NBA…

Think you know what it’s like being a baller’s girl?

You don’t.

My fairy tale is upside down.

A happily never after.

I kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud.

I was a fool, and his love – fool’s gold.

Now there’s a new player in the game, August West.

One of the NBA’s brightest stars.

Fine. Forbidden.

He wants me. I want him.

But my past, my fraudulent prince, won’t let me go.

if_goodreads_social_media_logo_1407939


29176984_10157304960050884_8629680000313851904_o“She absorbed me,” I say, shaking my head. “I’d never felt that way about anyone else. When she told me she had a boyfriend, I felt like she was reading from the wrong script. Like that’s now how this is supposed to go. How can it possibly go that way when I feel like this already?”

Y’all, I honestly don’t know how to write this review.
How do I put into words all the emotions that filled my body when reading this story?

I read a lot. I appreciate a lot of different genres and viewpoints. I even love a great number of stories and authors. But when an author gives you story after story that doesn’t just tug on your heartstrings, but grabs your whole heart from your body … that author is something special.

So, Iris and August … the moment these two met, even I could feel the pull between them. There was something so different about each of them, that when I found out … well let’s just say I didn’t have high hopes for the future of this story. To be honest, I found the beginning of the story … rough. I could totally feel the connection between these two, but something just didn’t flow for me. Being the reader I am, though, I had to keep going.

The next part is … hard. I felt fear creep through my body for Iris. I had to stop at points to regroup myself before moving on. She, well she suffered. At the hands of a man who claimed “love” was the reason. During this hell, August finds her, but he is oblivious to what’s happening. It’s during this time, though, that August lets her know exactly how he feels “Center,” he says, linking our fingers and toying with the hair hanging on my shoulder. “If you were mine, Iris, there would be no doubt what position you’d hold in my life. You’d be center. I’d play you at the five.” This moment is when I knew, I knew that August had to break through.

Then, finally, FINALLY — “HOPSCOTCH” (You’ll get it if you read, I promise!)

MiMi. She is EVERYTHING. That woman is the epitome of strength, dignity, and heart. Favorite character. Hands down. “Struggle does not make you weak,” she whispers back. “Struggling against those who hold us is what makes us, over time, stronger than they are. Strong enough to fight back. Strong enough to win.” When Iris finally spends time with her, this is when she finds the strength to rebuild herself, and create the life that she had always wanted.

Iris begins the difficult journey to rebuilding her … well, really herself. On this journey, she intersects paths with August. Now, she is a very different woman than she was before, but that pull between the two of them isn’t any weaker, it’s only her trust in men that has her wavering. It’s difficult for her to really trust that August is looking out for her and not controlling her. “When I give you something, it’s yours. You’ll own it, and no one can take it away from you. Not even me.” He bends to whisper in my ear, “The same way you own my heart, Iris. Outright.

This story was a journey. That doesn’t happen for me often that a story genuinely twists and turns me enough to say I journeyed through it. This story was tough. It made me question ideas I’ve carried for a long time, and it made me question how far you go to secure what you want.

Moving. Ugly. Emotional. Beautiful. Heartbreaking.

“I love that you trust me with that, that you’re so unguarded.”

“That’s because when I’m with you, I’m not unguarded.” I kiss the back of his hand, blinking at tears. “You guard me. I know you’ll always protect me.” ❤

Caution on Ice (Boys of Winter Book 4) by S.R. Grey

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Caution on Ice

Sports Romance/Romantic Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

No matter how damaged you think you are, because when you find your true love you will see that there’s always hope for better days…

Have a look at the blurb:

Dylan Culderway is more than hockey’s top defenseman. He’s the kind of guy who’s always there to help a friend. Plus, he’s a true gentleman. More importantly, certainly to the ladies, is that Dylan is hot enough to melt ice.

Dylan’s no womanizer, though. He doesn’t have time for love. Seems he’s too busy running away from his past.

Or is he running to his past?

When Dylan meets Chloe Tettersaw, the pretty new girl in town, everything changes. A relationship and love are no longer off the table. But it’s not all smooth sailing. When a mysterious stalker makes Chloe’s life a living hell the couple find themselves, and their burgeoning love, tested.

Little does Dylan know this may be his chance to rewrite history . . . and maybe this time he can make things right.

The past and present are about to collide for Dylan and Chloe.

Are they ready?

Can it heal their damaged souls?

Or will it tear them apart?

Caution on Ice is the fourth standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

**STANDALONE NOVEL**

**EACH BOOK IN THE BOYS OF WINTER SERIES FEATURES A DIFFERENT SMOKING HOT HOCKEY PLAYER’S STORY**

#MyReview:

Oh my sweet lord… Just look at this cover… Dayum… I wanna do bad thing with this hunk of a man…
I’ve been anxiously waiting for another book from this author and being the fourth book from a series that I adore it was the cherry on top of the cake.
S. R. Grey knows what she’s doing. Every book that I’ve read made me smile and laugh and curse… It was emotion after emotion. Her writing is hot, detailed, engaging and sexy has hell.
Have you meet the Boys of Winter? You haven’t? Dayum girls you don’t know what you’re missing. Every single one of them has a story that will hook you up from the beginning. Trust me…
Caution on Ice is the fourth book from the Boys of Winter series and tells the stories of Dylan and Chloe.
Dylan is a hockey defenseman, and a very good one that love his job. He’s a kind soul, always available to help everyone and a true gentleman. Let’s not forget that he’s sexy as hell and oozes sex appeal. But behind all this hides a guy that has a few secrets! Secrets that make it impossible for him to find love or even to fall in love. He’s not a one night stand type of man. He’s well focused in his career and that’s it.
Well, it was until Chloe crosses his path.
Chloe moves to a new city in order to be closer to her brother but mainly to get away from an abusive relationship. She’s focused on getting back on her feet and live life for herself and be free. She thought that love would be out of the question until Dylan crosses her path.
And to make things worse, her past is back and determined to take her with it!
And now what? Can these two broken souls find comfort in each others arms? Can they forget and overcome their pasts? Can they find happiness?
Oh my dear lord… What a book… What a story… What the hell…
The plot is superb, very well written, super engaging and stunning. The interation between the characters is beautiful, sweet, intense and hot sometimes.
The story progressed in a way that left me scared, nervous, as well as happy and so freaking hot.
It’s amazing that a book can make you feel like you’re inside of the story because you feel their pains.
Oh S. R. You’re amazing. This series is getting better and better and I can’t wait for more.
I love these boys and I want more.

Naughty Wish (Brit Boys Sports Romance Book 5) by J.H. Croix

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Naughty Wish

Sports Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

You can deny all you want but when love knocks at your door you better open it.

Have a look at the blurb:

Jana 
How to catch a cop for Christmas
Flirt shamelessly when said handsome cop pulls you over.
Send naughty texts.
Sweet-talk him into dinner.
Melt…
Wait a sec. This was supposed to be just a little harmless fun.
He’s in way too deep.
So is my heart.

Finn
A fender bender lands Jana Sparks in my police cruiser.
All I’m supposed to do is give her a ride.
Instead, I’d like her to ride me.
She’s bold, brash and beautiful.
I thought I was too cynical to fall for someone again.
Jana makes me so hot, I ache for her.
I can’t keep my hands off of her, and I can’t keep her from stealing my heart.
My heart was hers the first night we spent together.
I just have to make her believe it.

*This is a steamy, full-length standalone romance with a guaranteed happily-ever-after. No cliffhangers. Nothing but steamy romance & HEA!

#MyReview:

How can I stop? Or even slow down? Well when it comes to books I can’t. I can say that I’ll try, that I’ll reduce my reading but… Coulda, shoulda, woulda. I’m not stopping because I really can’t. How can I stop and miss out amazing books like this one?
And guess what? When I have amazing author’s with new books coming out I know only one thing. I want to read them all and fast.
J. H. Croix is guilty as charged. She’s amazing and that can be seen with her writting. Her books wrapped around love, loss,  desire, madness, kinkiness, and so mush more. But behind all that is a love story that needs to be known.
Naughty Wish is her latest release and tells the stories of Jana and Finn. But let me just give you and advice. Since this book is the 5th book from the Brit Boys Sports series I seriously recommend you to read them all. Despite all books are standalones you should read them all in order to understand this series better.
Jana is a paralegal that works with her best friend. She was supposed to become a lawyer but life had other ideas for her. One bad judgement and she it rock bottom. Thank God for her best friend Zoe. But she’s a wild card, lol. Her great idea to seduce a cop when she’s pulled over will bring her more than what she asked for.
Finn is a cop that was called to intervene in a car accident. He thought it would be another day like he’s used to but he was so mistaken. When he offers a ride to the beautiful Jana he can’t imagine the turn his life and his heart are about to get. He was seriously hurt in the past and that made him to not trust woman easily.
Another brilliant book like I knew it would be.
These series is amazing and I couldn’t be more happy for the privilege to read it.
The plot is fantastic, fast paced and intense. The interation between the characters is beautiful and funny. They want each other but they can’t accept it, let’s talk about two stubborn people. Jeez.
The story progressed smoothly and quickly, with lots of juicy stuff into the mix. Oh boy… Can I have a police officer like him? Where do I sign up?
Love, friendship, family, loyalty are very present in this book and that made the book so much more inviting and appealing.
Will we have more books about these guys? Or this was the last one? I really hope not.
Oh J. H. You’re amazing woman. Each book is magnificent and special and I can’t wait for more.

Out Of Bounds (Brit Boys Sports Romance Book 3) by J.H. Croix

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Out of Bounds

Sports Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

No-one is to serious or busy to fall in love. And a player can give is heart away. Don’t doubt love because you will be surprised.

Have a look at the blurb:

Game on.
I’m a player. In more ways than one.
I love women and they love me.
The second I lay eyes on Zoe, I know I want her.
Like mad.
She’s nothing but curves, but she hides them behind her oh-so-proper clothes.
That only makes me want her more—and I’m used to getting what I want.
Problem is…she’s supposed to get me out of a bit of a legal jam.
My attorney is a definite no-no.
Or so Zoe says.
She also says a few other things…
My prim, professional, smoking hot attorney is innocent…in more ways than one.
Game. Set. Match.
I will have her.
Only one thing I didn’t count on.
She might have me too.

*This is a steamy, full-length standalone sports romance with a guaranteed happily-ever-after. No cliffhangers. Nothing but steamy romance & HEA!

#MyReview:

It keeps getting better and better. Have you had a good look at this cover?? Ahem… Can I drool? Jeez..
I know this author for a while now and I can say, without reading her books, that she’s amazing. I can guarantee that due to her previous works. She has a way with words that will knock your socks off in a sec.
J. H. Croix is like a sorcerer. Her words work like magic with the ability to make you want more and more each time. Trust me..
Out of Bounds the 4th book from the Brit Boys Sports and let me tell you that you can’t miss this. First of all you should read the other 3 books because despite they are all standalones you need to know the characters and what better way to do so than reading? Go for it and you will thank me later.
This book tells the stories of Ethan and Zoe.
Ethan is a well succeed soccer player. But he’s also a player outside the field because one night stands are his motto. But one wrong situation got him with problems with the law and now he needs a lawyer. That should be peachy if he hadn’t kissed her a while back.
Zoe is a criminal defense lawyer and takes her career very seriously. She doesn’t have time for relationships because she’s always busy with case after case. When she’s hired to represent Ethan she can’t imagine what’s about come her way.
And it was just another amazing story like I knew it would be.
The plot is beautiful and intense, fast paced and very well written. The interation between the characters is intense, forbidden, raw and sweet. The things we want aren’t always in front of your eyes. First you need to accept that you want more and then you have to look for it.
This book provide us love, passion, desire as well as fear, stubbornness, cruel people and let’s not forget the hot stuff. That’s right, in a book like this is a must.
This series is getting better every time, chapter by chapter.
Oh J. H. What are you doing to me… I’ve read this book in one day, just so you know, I ended it we 2:30am.
Now let’s dig into the next one. But not at this hour because I’m beat. Lol
