BLURB

L.P. Dover, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who brought you the tantalizing Gloves Off series, presents Gloves Off – Next Generation. This brand-new saga of interconnected standalones unites new characters with beloved originals in dark, and sexy stories laced with suspense!
    
Fame. Money. Status. An infinite number of women standing ringside in hopes of one night with him. These are all the things Carter Reynolds loves about being MMA royalty. As a UFC Heavyweight champion, and the son of the illustrious Matt Reynolds, Carter thinks he has everything he could ever want.

Until he comes face to face with Emma Jameson—the one who got away. The pair are bonded by a secret from their past, one that none in their inner circle can ever know about…

Thanks to her father, Emma is no stranger to the MMA world. UFC Middleweight champion, Ryley Jameson, is known far and wide for his scandalous antics in and out of the ring. His fame put her in the spotlight at a very early age. It even led to her lucrative modeling career and the opportunity for her to travel the world. Now Emma is back with the family of fighters she left behind and quickly discovers a darkness that has wriggled its way into the MMA fold.

Someone demands retribution for the sins of the past, and they’ve chosen to make Emma their first target. Determined to keep her safe, Carter will do whatever it takes to protect her, even if that means putting his life on the line.

As hidden truths are revealed, Carter and Emma find that no one in their circle is safe… and this is only the beginning.

4 Stars

This is the first book in Gloves Off-The Next Generation series.  Now I have to re-read the original series, because it's been awhile.
I wish I would have done a re-read before reading this.  
An old enemy pops up in this book and starts everything off.
This is Carter and Emma's story.  They were a lot of firsts for each other.  But neither fought for the other when life and dreams pulled them to opposite coasts.
But now they're both back.
These two would do anything for each other.  And Carter proves it.
This whole group has a lot to go through.  Luckily now they will have help from an unlikely source.
I am surprised the parents didn't figure something was going on because of the tats though.
Can't wait to see how it all plays out in the end.

COMING SOON

**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** Harley by Marie James

 Release Date: May 5


They say misery loves company, but after losing the love of my life all I wanted was to be completely alone.
Having a young daughter made that impossible.
I couldn’t curl into myself.
I couldn’t spend hours in the dark living in regret.
I couldn’t end it all no matter how many times that thought crossed my mind.
Regretfully, I couldn’t go through life on my own.
I needed help, and although my teammates were there to lend a helping hand, I still needed more than they could offer.
Alyssa Dansby suffered more than any woman ever should.
She came to the Cerberus clubhouse to heal, working in the clubhouse’s nursery.
She was a godsend for my daughter Aria.
She was trouble for me.
I shouldn’t be thinking about the woman caring for my child so soon after my wife’s death.
We were both looking for our new normal.
I never imagined mine would include her.

This is the 21st book in the Cerberus MC series.  They are stand alones for the most part.
In a previous book, we see when Harley and Lana first came to Cerberus and when Harley was notified of her death.  Harley's reaction is devasting and heartbreaking.
He has his grief and guilt to deal with in this book.  While dealing with that, he also has to learn to be a single dad to an infant daughter.  
His future he had planned out, it's gone and he's lost.
Or so he thinks. 
Ali was rescued after being kidnapped.  She goes to Cerberus to try and heal and to move past it.  She wants her life back.
These two have a lot of bumps in the road.  It's not easy.  It's a struggle.
I did wish Ali would have stood up to Harley some though.
This is a great read.

Let's see...where to begin...

I'm inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we're doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master's degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there's usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I'm not writing; I'm reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I'm reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it's gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.

**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** Second Shot With #76 by Piper Rayne


Second Shot with #76 by Piper Rayne is now live!

My mom always said you don't get a second shot at making a first impression. I've remembered that my entire career. Especially since I'm one of the few black men who play professional hockey.

I'm calculated and respectful in the way I speak to my coaches, the owners, and the media. I've never taken a risk... until her.

I could blame it on the fact that for once I pushed away the pressure of my career for the ocean waves, the sand, and good times with my new teammates. But those are excuses because the minute I saw her at the airport, something lit up inside me and the best week of my life was spent with her in my bed.

After our week in paradise, we said goodbye, exchanged phone numbers and both assumed that unless one of us was flying through the other's city on the opposite side of the country, our vacation fling was over.

Then one night after practice I see her. She's here. In my city. Telling me she moved here for a job. If that's not fate tell me what is.

I've never wanted a second shot more than I do this time, but she's determined to leave what we were on the island we left behind.

5 Stars

This is the fifth book in the Hockey Hotties series.  They are stand alones, but you'll see all the previous couples in this story.
This is Cory's book.
Cory is one of the few black men that play hockey.  He's the second line, so not a starter...yet.  He has a lot of pressure on him for being a role model for kids that look like him.
He has kind of ruined his reputation some by being with puck bunnies.  
He's a great guy though.
Ande is awesome also.  She is very na├»ve when it comes to her sister though.
And let me tell you I absolutely hate her sister.

Want a woman to make you look good in front of your boss? Let me find my heels. Would you love for someone to be obsessed with you in front of your ex? I’m applying my red lipstick now.

5 Stars

This is a great start to a brand new series.  I absolutely loved this story and the characters.
Moss is such an amazing guy.  His whole family is great.
Brooke is awesome.  She's the exact opposite of her family.  The only non-toxic person in her family is Honey.
My heart broke for what her mom did to her and how she treats her.
My heart broke for Moss also.
This book had me laughing a lot also.
I want to know who is texting about penguins!

**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** Cease Fire by Marie James

 Release Date: April 7


Making something off-limits will always make that thing more appealing. 

Jules Warren, my sister’s best friend, was no different. 

She has been the leading lady in every fantasy I’ve had since I was a teenager. 

There was no way I was turning her down when she invited me to her room. 

Those fantasies? They had nothing on the real thing. 

I was given the weekend to make my dreams come true. 

The ramifications, however, will last a lifetime. 

Keeping a secret is one thing. 

Living with the lies is impossible.

3.5 Stars

This is the ninth book in the Blackbridge Security series.  While I have loved all the others, this one is an okay read.
I really disliked Jules for the entire books.  She is selfish.  
I won't go into detail about everything she did, but she didn't really redeem herself enough for me to start liking her.  
I felt she only told the truth because Kit finally forced her to.  I don't think she ever would have had he not given her an ultimatum.
I did like Kit in the previous books.  I still liked him in this, but he gave in too easy with everything Jules asked of him.  he was her doormat.
I still enjoyed the story.  I just didn't love it.

**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** Claiming The Cowboy by Kennedy Fox

Claiming the Cowboy

Circle B Ranch, #7

                                          
   

Claiming the Cowboy is now available on all retailers!

Early morning feedings, barn clean up, and chasing goats are Knox Bishop’s everyday routine. That changes when a bachelor auction brings him face to face with the world’s most forbidden fruit—his twin brother’s crush.

He shouldn’t tempt her, but the way her body reacts to his makes it too damn easy. Hadleigh has known the Bishop twins all her life and they’ve never crossed the lines. That is until she fools around with Knox and learns he has a piercing south of the border. A piercing she very much enjoys licking. She knows his main hobby consists of random weekend hookups, but she can’t get the taste of him off her mind. Admitting what she feels wouldn’t be so difficult if Kane Bishop hadn’t just confessed his feelings for her too. Now she finds herself wedged between two brothers—one she could break and one who could break her. **Claiming the Cowboy is a complete stand-alone and can be read without reading any of the other books or spin-off series, but if you prefer to read in order, start with Hitching the Cowboy as the characters and families do interconnect.**

This is the seventh book in the Circle B Ranch series.  They are stand alones and this is the 2nd generation.
Now I will give a warning because I know some won't want to read this.  There is a love triangle.  It's with twin brothers wanting the same girl.  There is a threesome and some kinks thrown in also.  
This is Knox and Hadleigh's story.  With Kane thrown in there also.  
Kane and Hads have been best friends forever.  But he's in love with her.  
The bachelor auction changes everything when Hadleigh wins Knox.  
I don't want to give anything away and say too much though.
I do really like how this story worked itself out though.
It's a good read.
