Audiobook Review: Play Me By Jennifer Probst

Play Me
Series: The Steele Brothers, Book 2
By: Jennifer Probst
Narrated by: Matthew Williamson
Length: 1 hr and 54 mins






Professional gambler Sloane Keller is tired of dating weak-willed men and longs to meet a man who challenges her dominant personality and forces her to submit. As the Queen of Cards, she’s used to making her own rules and craves the excitement of Vegas. But her inner heart cries out for someone who can be her match, both inside the casino and in the bedroom.

As the new dealer in town, Roman Steele is burnt out on women looking for a quick penny and a man to follow. He craves a woman with fire in her soul and a keen intellect who can challenge him. When his brother recommends the exclusive agency FANTA-C to give him one perfect night, Rome is amazed at the complicated woman who challenges both his body and soul. But when the evening is over, will she be gutsy enough to offer him forever?

What’s your secret desire for one perfect night?

Welcome to the mysterious FANTA-C agency, where everything and anything goes....

"Jennifer Probst builds believably kinky characters and puts them into a situation so hot and fraught with sexual tension I had to cross my legs. Rome is a Dominant God and Sloane is a feisty yet submissive match for him." (Christine D Reiss, USA Today best-selling author of the Submission Series)



This is the second book in The Steel Brothers Series. This is a short, fun, fast-paced, and steamy novella. Sloane and Roman are fantastic characters, and they share an immediate attraction, and an explosive chemistry. Matthew Williamson did a good job with the narration. #valentinePR

Blurb:
I met Alessandra at a party. Tried to impress her. Was almost positive I was going to fail. I think I said something along the lines of, “I’m a Goat called Fish who’s hung like a bull—but not really. I’m actually pretty average.” Smooth. I know. Try not to be jealous. When she laughed—and I mean, really laughed—I knew she wasn’t like the other girls I’d been meeting on tour. Hell, she wasn’t even in the same stratosphere as those fangirls and gold-diggers. At one point during the party, Alessandra said, “There’s nothing like a girl’s first love.” I knew she was talking about the first smash hit by my band, 22 Goats. Alessandra said it was the first song she’d heard by us and it “hit her like a ton of bricks.” Ironic, seeing as how I was having the same reaction from being in her presence. I made it my mission to impress her. Give her the kiss of a lifetime that night. But since I’ve always been the dude with zero game, nothing went according to plan. I’m not giving up, though. I’m going to win this girl over. I’m done sitting on the sidelines, watching the bad boy getting the girl. This time, the nice guy will finish first. Even if it’s the last thing he’ll do. Smitten is an all-new standalone friends to lovers romance!

Blog Tour: Hard to Handle By K. Bromberg


Hard to Handle, book one in the Play Hard series, an all new series of standalone books by New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, is LIVE!

At first, the request seemed simple—sign a new athlete to the agency. Then I found out the new athlete was none other than the most wanted man in hockey today: Hunter Maddox

Gifted. Sexy. At the top of his game. And the only man who has ever broken my heart. If signing him will help save our family business, I’ll swallow my pride and do what’s asked.

But when it becomes clear his uncharacteristic antics off the ice are a hint of something deeper, keeping things strictly professional between us becomes more than complicated.

But I know better than to cross that line.

I’ll never date a client. Not even for him.

*** Win the Stanley Cup and do it before time runs out.

Not a small feat, but it’s what’s motivated me since the start of my career.

And time is running out.

Enter Dekker Kincade.

Feisty. Dogged. Damn gorgeous. The one I let get away.

I have no idea why she’s traveling with the team, but hell if resisting her is going to be easy.

But I have a job to do, and I refuse to lose sight of that end game. Even if she confuses me. Even if she sees parts of me I’ve hidden from the world.

I can’t lose focus. Not even for her.

Excerpt:

I stare at Hunter. At his shirt plastered with sweat and how it clings to his body, despite the chill of the ice his skates are standing on. He has his warm-up pants on and is without a helmet, his hair curling at the ends from the sweat. And all I see in his eyes is anger I didn’t put there. Or maybe I did. Rejection can do that to a man . . . but there’s something more here. Something I walked in on that doesn’t make sense. “Don’t give me that look, Kincade,” Hunter mutters as he skates over to the penalty box where his electrolyte drink sits. “What look?” I ask. He half laughs, half snorts and meets my gaze across the distance. “Disappointment. Disproval. Disdain. I’m the king of all of them, so save your breath—or in this case—your glare, because it’s not going to work with me.” “Are we working on emotions that start with the letter D today?” I ask. A hint of my embarrassment and anger over how I acted last night creeps into my voice, but I mask it with sarcasm. “If that’s the case, I’m more than impressed with your answers thus far.” He clenches his jaw in response and then skates back over to line up more pucks so he can shoot them. And he does, one after another, each shot taken with laser precision and a healthy dose of fury behind it. He goes through the first ten lined up and then stops to catch his breath. His talent and skill are undeniable, but so is the beer bottle in my hand. “Just because you’re the captain and star of this team, doesn’t mean management won’t frown upon this,” I say, unable to let this go. “Screw the management.” “No one likes a player who’s hard to handle and honestly, Hunter, you’re becoming hard to handle.” “No one likes unsolicited advice from someone who has no bearing on his career, either,” he counters, the rebuke stinging but deserved. The problem is, I do care about him. Doesn’t he get that’s where my hostility stems from? And only a crazy person would say that, Dekker. I put my hands up in surrender to both him and my own thoughts. “You know I only want the best for you.” I take a few steps in his direction in the first row of the stands. I’m close enough to catch the hitch of his movement and to see uncertainty flicker in his eyes. It’s almost as if he needs to talk but doesn’t see me as someone he can trust. I hate that. “What is it, Hunter?” “Nothing. It’s . . . never mind.” But I see it, and he knows I see it. The question is what do I see, though?

Meet K. Bromberg:

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary romance novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines and damaged heroes who we love to hate but can’t help to love.

A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow and her mind scattered in too many different directions.

My Review:

This is the first book in The Play Hard Series, a Sports Romance. I love the cover! Hard to Handle was effectively Hard to Handle without crying! OMG! I wasn't prepared for this story. Hunter and Dekker's story is emotionally intense, heartbreaking, and beautiful. The characters are wonderful. Hunter wasn't my favorite hero at first... but OMG! I was wrong! He is a wonderful broken soul. Dekker is beautiful, strong, independent, caring and supportive. They are perfect together. They share a strong and beautiful chemistry. The storyline is slow paced, and captivating. The back and forth, past to present, is emotionally heartbreaking, at least to me. By the end, while listening to the first epilogue, I was a crying mess. What a beautiful and emotional story! I started by reading it, and I Immediately decided to switch to the audiobook version. I didn't regret it, not a minute. Jacob Morgan and Emma Wilder did an outstanding job with the narration. They were perfect as Hunter and Dekker. This is a great author/narrators team! I LOVED it, and I HIGHLY recommend it! Looking forward to listen to the next installment in the Series.

Release Blitz: Secrets By L.A. Fiore and Anthony Dwayne

Title: Secrets
Author: L.A. Fiore & Anthony Dwayne
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 3, 2020
Welcome to Summerville…
Arissa Haywood, editor of the popular Southern Charm magazine, is looking to get out of the rat race of Charleston so moves to the quirky town of Summerville. When a move-in disaster brings the sexy sheriff Hank Weathers to her door, she knows she’s made the right move. 
Hank Weathers can’t deny the attraction to the beauty who just moved into his quiet town, but he’s been there before…a city girl trying to live in the country. He’s not going down that road again, but the attraction is too hard for them to ignore.
They jump feet first into a whirlwind romance. As the intensity of their relationship grows, Arissa begins to find discrepancies about Hank. Without his knowledge, she starts digging deeper into his past, aided by the Summerville Bells, the rowdy and provocative southern ladies who know everything about everyone in town.
When Arissa uncovers a shocking skeleton in the Weathers’ closet, she quickly learns that some secrets are best left hidden.
LA Fiore is a hybrid author who believes in a happily ever after, but she likes to make her readers work for it. When she's not writing she can usually be found in the garden or hanging on the deck with her family and friends. She lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with her husband and two kids and their four fur babies.
Anthony started writing years ago as a hobby, but it quickly turned into a passion. He first began publishing under the name, Kane Caldwell, but has since changed the name he will continue publishing under. He is the epitome of a country boy with jeans, t-shirt, hat (No, not a cowboy hat. Lol), scruffy face, and work boots on, driving his truck and definitely not a guy you'd picture writing romance. Anthony works in the construction business where he runs his own crew. He has two awesome boys, and an amazing woman that keeps him on the edge. Anthony resides in the south where the weather is warm but most times sweltering hot. During down time, he loves to be surrounded by family, friends, great food, or engrossed in a good book. And of course, putting his imagination to work, where reality and fantasy collide.

Audiobook Review Tour: My Life as A Rock Album By LJ Evans

🎧🎧Audiobook Review Tour!! 🎧🎧

My Life as A Rock Album 
My Life As An Album, Book 3
By LJ Evans
Narrated by: Sarah Puckett & Neill Thorne
Audio Production by Pink Flamingo Productions


 
 
Review Tour Hosted by Audiobook Obsession PR


My Review:
This is the third book in the My Life as an Album Series written by LJ Evans. This story can be listened as a standalone, but you don't want to miss one book in the Series. I like how each chapter is themed with a lyric from Bon Jovi's songs. Seth and PJ's story is heartwrenching, emotional, intense, and beautiful, filled with misunderstandings, a lack of communication, and a little suspense. The story is slow paced, and the back and forth, past to present, is well done. Seth's letters are beautiful. The ending is heartwarming. I love to have both POV. The supporting characters are great, and they have an important part in this story. Sarah Puckett and Neill Thorne did an amazing job with the narration. Sarah Puckett is already one of my favorite narrators. I like her reading as PJ. Neill Thorne is a new narrator to me. He has a great voice, really pleasant to listen to. He is perfect as Seth. I enjoyed it. I love this Series. Looking forward to listen to My Life as a Mixtape, the last book in the Series.

Review Blitz: Absolute Power by Jeana E. Mann

πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ NEW RELEASE πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

Absolute Power is LIVE! USA Today bestselling author Jeana E. Mann brings the heat in this dark and suspenseful romance.

The devil in my nightmares is the man of my dreams.

For the past three years, I’ve been running from a man I’ve never met. A man who carries a grudge. A man who specializes in revenge. I thought I had it all—a career and a new home in a sleepy small town. My world comes crashing down when a sexy gang member from the city arrives at my job, wrapped in tattoos and sinful smiles. Beneath his flirtatious facade beats the heart of an angry man. I’ve committed the one sin he can never forgive. I stole from him, and he won’t be satisfied until he’s repaid with the money or my life.

They say there are two kinds of power: power derived from fear and power obtained by acts of love. Cash Delacorte holds them both over my head. He’s everything I never wanted: dark, deceptive, and dedicated to a life of crime. He’s determined to pull me into the darkness with him, and the thing is—I want to go. Every kiss, every lie, every punishment propels me into a future I never dreamed possible.

My Review

This is the first installment in the Absolute Duet, an amazing dark romantic suspense, sets in Baxter Corner, a small town. Cash is powerful, controlling, ruthless, dominant, angry, and dangerous. He is seeking for revenge. His entire demeanor exudes danger, power, and sins. Jagger, Calliope's sister from the Ruthless Knight, is sweet, independent, and a strong warrior and survivor. I love her name. They share an instant attraction, and an explosive chemistry. The storyline is fast-paced, and captivating. Impossible to put it down. The secondary characters are great, and intriguing. I love Emery and Gage. The world building is well done, and intriguing, filled with twists and turns. The story ends with an unpredictable cliffhanger. I enjoyed it, and I HIGHLY recommend it. Looking forward to read the last installment in this duet. 

You can read this story as a standalone, but I if you have time, I highly recommend you to read the Ruthless Knight before. This duet is a spin-off of the amazingly dark Ruthless Knight (Calliope's story). The Exiled Prince Trilogy and The Rebel Queen Duet are also part of this amazing world. You should also consider to read these Series. You won't regret it. I love these interconnected Series, with intertwined characters.  Jeana E. Mann never disappoints.  

Reading order suggested:
1) The Exiled Prince Trilogy (Henry and Everly)
2) The Rebel Queen Duet (Roman and Rourke)
3) Ruthless Knight (Calliope and Nicky)
4) and then, Absolute Power Duet (Cash and Jagger)
