**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** Something Like Hate by Piper Rayne


Something like Hate by Piper Rayne is now live! 

I love him.

I loathe him.

It’s like plucking daisy petals in my head, but he’ll never know.

When Miles Cavanaugh, the best safety in the league, was traded to the Chicago Grizzlies football team last year, I could finally breathe. Temptation was miles away.

How naïve to think it would end there because when the opportunity to write for a national magazine based in Chicago lands in my lap months later, I can’t turn it down. Sure, it’s a big city, but the sexual energy feels like a beacon between us the minute my plane lands. 

To make matters worse, I end up having to take over the job of reporting exclusively on the Chicago Grizzlies. Which means traveling with the team, interviewing players, and pretty much having an all-access pass to their lives during the season. 

Miles and I put up a great front, quickly hating on one another, but we both know it’s a lie. We also know the rules are simple. For me, don’t sleep with the subject of your articles. For him, don’t sleep with the journalist who can make or break your career.

I thought straight-laced Miles Cavanaugh followed all the rules… oh how wrong I was.

Tonya's Review

5 Stars

This is the first book in the Chicago Grizzlies series.  But these aren't new characters.

We met Miles and Bryce in the previous series.  And boy is there something with these two.

There really is a thin line between love and hate.

Miles was traded to Chicago.

Bryce got a job offer in Chicago that she couldn't turn down.

It's a big city.  They won't see each other right? Right?  


I knew that there was something more with these two.  I was so happy that they ended up together!

I really love how it all played out.

This is a great read.

**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** The Unperfects by Rachel Van Dyken


Rachel Van Dyken

Release Date: September 22


Find out just how unperfect life can be in #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken’s steamy new adult romance, The Unperfects. I saw her. Liked her instantly. May have slept with her twice only to… well, never mind. It gets confusing after that point. You see, there are two of them. Identical twins. All I wanted was a vacation from the bullshit but what I got was evil twin number one and innocent twin number two. They say things come in threes, so help me God, if there’s another. I’m healing from past trauma but may have created more for my future. Anyone got any sage? A candle? At this point, I’d take Barney. Send help. Love, Quinn

5 Stars

This is a MUST READ!
It will have you nervous, pissed, and laughing out loud a lot.
This is Quinn and Chloe's book.
We do get some surprise characters from other books too!  Rachel put it best in the epilogue, "The Mafia. Football. Rockstars. Vodka. The floor is lava."
Quinn went to Seaside to get away from his loneliness and he ends up with chaos, Chloe, and Sophie.
This is a good twin/evil twin situation.  Not a cheating read.
There is a lot that happens in this book.
I absolutely love Quinn.  Especially when he gets nervous and talks so much he gets awkward.
Chloe is great too.  She just keeps some secrets that she shouldn't have.
I'm thinking Sophie will get a book and be redeemed.

P.S. I love this book!

**REVIEW TOUR** I Could Never by Penelope Ward

Title: I Could Never
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Tropes: Forbidden Romance/Enemies to Lovers
Release Date: August 21, 2023


From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward comes a new forbidden, enemies-to-lovers story…

It all started with an unexpected phone call.
Two years after my fiancé passed away in an accident, his father died suddenly, leaving Brad’s adult, special-needs brother with no one to care for him.
The next thing I knew, I was on a cross-country drive to New Hampshire where I’d be moving in to look after Scottie until I could get him into a group home.
The last thing I ever expected?
I wouldn’t be taking care of him alone.
Josh Mathers, my fiance’s best friend—who also happened to be my sworn enemy—insisted he was the better person for the job. He told me to go back to California, and I told him where he could stick that demand.
Our disdain for each other wasn’t anything new. It dated back to a text I’d accidentally read years ago.
We hated each other. But we both loved Scottie, so neither of us budged.
Now we were living together in a tiny house—with one available bedroom. Thank goodness it was only temporary.
Over time, I realized the broody jerk I thought I knew was different than I’d imagined.
I found myself slowly growing attached to someone I once considered the enemy…and growing attracted to him.
Sure, both of us were guilt-ridden over Brad. We were also two grown people with pent-up frustration toward one another—stuck in a cabin in the woods.
But this was Josh.
I could never.



Tonya's Review
4 Stars

This is yet another great stand alone from Penelope Ward. This is a hate to love story. 

Knowing someone like Scottie, made it hit close to home for me.  My guy is a little verbal though.

Carly and Josh didn't like each other.  They both loved the same guy? Differently, but it was still love.  One as a best friend and the other as a fiancee.  

They are both still feeling that loss.  And the guilt.

This is a slow burn read.  

I loved how it worked out.  I didn't like finding Scottie a group home, but sometimes it is needed. 


Penelope Ward is a New York Times, USA Today and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author of contemporary romance.

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


Marie James

Release Date: August 17


   I never expected to see her again. The connection we shared through her brother was severed when he died in combat. Their parents were adamant that I never reach out to them again. I forgot about the pact I made, my promise to make her mine if I wasn’t married by thirty. The only answer I had for her when she showed up with that handwritten note was no. Only Devyn Malloy isn’t the type to take no for an answer. Cerberus welcomed her with open arms, but as that became enough for her, I realized it might not be enough for me… Grab Your Copy!   https://amzn.to/3KhH0dl  
Tonya's Review
5 Stars

This is book 28 in the Cerberus MC series.  They are stand alones, but this book does set up the next one.  And boy, I can't wait for it!

This is an age gap (18 and 30) and best friend's younger sister read.  Don't worry, Legacy hasn't seen Devyn since she was six.  The feelings are all new.

Legacy has a lot of guilt because of what happened to Devyn's brother.

Devyn's been basically ignore by her parents since his death.  They blame Legacy for it.

I was expecting drama from her parents, not the drama towards the club though.  

I love how this story worked out.  It's a great read.

**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** The Proposal by Adriana Locke

 An unexpected proposal occurs when a Vegas oops marriage turns into a marriage of convenience between a rugby player and his best friend's little sister.

The Proposal by Adriana Locke is now live! 

Breaking News: Rugby’s bad boy marries his best friend’s little sister

If Renn Brewer would’ve asked me to marry him, I would’ve said no.


One, his reputation precedes him. His name is in the headlines at least once a month. Two, he’s not just my brother’s best friend. They’re teammates. And three, I’m in my self-care era. 

Unfortunately, a version of me equates self-care with bad choices.

The cocktail in my hand—similar to the one that got me into this situation—is the prettiest shade of pink. It’s almost the same color as the giant rock on my left hand. And instead of discussing an annulment, I’m considering a 90-day marriage of convenience to the man I accidentally married in Las Vegas.

Renn didn’t propose marriage. But he does deliver a proposal I might be unable to turn down.

5 Stars

This is a standalone.  It's a Vegas marriage, brother's best friend/little sister, and bad boy athlete read.  So much goodness packed into one book!

Renn is the bad boy rugby player.  But he truly isn't a bad guy.  He's actually a great guy.

Blakely is in Vegas to have some fun for her 30th birthday.  Just her and her bestie, Ella.  

Her brother and Renn weren't suppose to show up.  

The chemistry is hot, fun and flirty with these two right from the start.

I love how the "fake" marriage worked out and evolved into more.  

I wanted to beat Renn's dad.

We do see a character from another series.  That had me super excited because he's been a mystery

Now I do hope that we get books on the rest of the Brewer siblings!

This si the second book in the Star Falls series. They are stand alones.
Gracie is the only girl in the Bianchi clan. She's a tattoo artist and comes across as a badd ass. But she can be a total softy as well.
Ryder is new to town. He needs a fresh start for he and his kids. He's a widow, so he is a single dad. A single, amazing, dad.
Both have some baggage.
I loved how this was a slow burn and both put the kids first.
I wish we would have seen some more details at the end. But the last few chapters jumped ahead months at a time.
