Release Blitz - Penalty Play

Opposites attract...are you ready for the heat? Penalty Play by Jami Davenport IS NOW AVAILABLE!Amazon → http://amzn.to/2jqVLRgB&N (Nook) → http://bit.ly/2ueZ5DhiBooks → http://apple.co/2u5uSq9Kobo → http://bit.ly/2v9mYc5Single dad and star defenseman Matt LaRue lives for his kids and hockey. He's had one failed marriage and doesn't have any interest in going through that hell again. As conservative as they come, he can't comprehend his unexplainable attraction to a free-spirited female who changes hair color more often than his boys create new excuses to avoid doing their homework.Violet Strider is fleeing the past. She has a new start, new identity, and is hiding a big secret. Matt and Vi are a classic case of opposites attract, but neither expects the attraction to extend beyond a few hot trysts, especially Vi. Only her heart isn't listening, and her head is following her heart down a path of no return. As Vi grows closer to Matt and his boys, she fears her secr…

This book is #6, in the Shots On Goal series.  It is intended to be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and to avoid spoilers, I would read this series in order.
Sean has a rough job.  Good thing he has amazing friends.  When he gets a new partner, the last thing he expects to be is attracted and have feelings for her.  He knows if he acts on those feelings, they will be separated.
Jessica is excited to have such a great partner.  He respects her, and even invited her to meet his friends.  Only one problem - she is attracted to him.  She can never act on it unless she wants to get a new partner.
This book moves at such a fast pace!  I found myself confused as to the arrangement of it at some times.  I think the series as a whole will put more perspective on what I felt I missed.  There is lots of good humor, friendship, and even sexy times.  I look forward to finishing the rest of the series to come.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This book is #9 in the Game On In Seattle series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.
Matt has so much on his plate right now.  He is trying to get into the playoffs with his team, he has an ex trying to con him for money, he has no nanny for his boys, and the boys themselves are a handful.  All he needs is to be attracted to the woman who is wrong for him.  
Violet has a past full of secrets.  She is not real good around kids.  Matt puts her body on fire, so she wants a chance at a non-relationship with him.  If he can stop fighting and just give in.....
This story was a good read.  It has characters we love making cameo appearances too.  While it did feel like it was a bit rushed to me, I loved that the characters had excellent banter.  The overall pace was good, and there is such sexy humor you cannot help but love this series.  I give this story 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Release Day Blitz - Freeing Jasper

Image
Freeing Jasper - A Black Ops Romance * The 707 Freedom Series Book Two * Now Live on all major retailers books2read.com/freeingjasper The moment Jasper heard Emily Jenkins' sultry voice he was transfixed. 
An instant and heated reaction that wound its way through his soul and warmed his skin. The inexplicable connection was broken as fast as it began. Emily has a son. Jasper doesn't "do" kids. 

When her life spirals out of control, will Jasper be able to let go of his tragic past and save Emily and her son? Or has the Special Forces Soldier found his weakness - a history he cannot let go of?

Leo is best friends with Kevin, Leah's brother.  While he has had a pretty rough existence, he has always had his friends' family to rely on.  Now he is coming to stay with them while he fixes his home up enough to move in.
Leah has been kind of stalker-like throughout their childhood.  She has always been attracted to his dimples from a distance.  Now he will be living in her home - meaning up close and personal.  Is this a sign, or a sentence?
While this feels to some extent like a coming of age novel, there is a true element within of real love and how it stands the test of time.  I had moments where I wanted to scream, but each page definitely gave me feels - one way, or another.  These characters were a good example of why I read romance.  Love exists, and comes to those who wait.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This is book #2, in the Black Ops/707 Freedom Series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers - I recommend reading this series in order.
Emily has been through so much in the past.  She is actually surprised to find herself attracted to Jasper in the first place.  With her future looking uncertain, she is cautious in her reaction to him.
Jasper is made of protective alpha male.  Even if he didn't work in a dangerous field, he would always want to serve and protect.  Now that he needs to protect Emily, his chance with her has arrived.  Now, if only he can convince her.
This book was kind of a slow burn.  Even with the fast pace of the story, the romantic and sexy side was kind of like sweet chocolate melting on the tongue.  With a sexy weave throughout, the characters really show us how even while life throws you a curve, that love can heal.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Blurb: Football is everything, but love is the only game that matters.

Tate Durham, the newest Philadelphia football hottie, has been in love with Gia Capri since the moment he laid eyes on her back in college. Unfortunately, that happened the same night her destructive and doomed relationship with the troubled Matt Lampert began. Tate didn’t stand a chance. 

In the year since Matt took his own life, Gia’s been sleep-walking through her days and just barely surviving her nights. She’s not sure that she’s capable of anything else . . . until Tate finds her sitting on the floor of a grocery store, crying over potato chips.

Tate’s patience and honesty begins to heal what’s broken in Gia’s soul. Still, no matter how hard he tries—or how much he loves her—making her whole again might take more than he can give.

But love never gives up. And neither will Tate.

This is book #2, in the Chicago Rebels series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Vadim has not realized that he was missing Isobel until he saw her again.  Now he realizes just what he needs.  He just has to come up with a plan.  If the secrets of their pasts come to light - can they still have a future?
Such an incredible series!  I love that each and every character is so different.  These are really complex and interesting MC's that take us through it all.  I could not put this book down.  Engaging in many forms and filled with surprises, this was a great read.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This is book #10, and the final story in the THIRDS series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel, but why miss all the action and fun?  There is another series soon on the horizon.... you won't want to miss that one either!
Sloane & Dex are finally tying the knot.  Not before taking care of yet another terrorist problem.  While their team steps up for one more time together of getting the bad guy, the future Daley's have a lot coming at them.  Wedding plans, family, work, secrets, and so much more.

Brynn is given a bet by her besties to choose the next man she sees as a potential hook up.  She has her ex in the same room, so she gives in.  Little does she know, that he turns out to be the hottest item in man candy.  Worse, he knows her friends too.

Tom is not going to turn down a hottie who is all over him.  He hasn't felt good about himself in a while.  This run in only saddens him when he cannot find her the next day.  Fate has more in store, however, and soon the details get him revving.
This is such an amazing story!  I laughed, I cried, and devoured the pages.  So excited to read the next installment of what we are told will be the Man Hands series.  I am sure it will be a winner and hope it gets released quickly!  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This is book #4, in the Game On series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.
Finn is stunned to meet Chess.  First by her name, then by her talent, and later just by her fabulous self.  They are both attracted to one another immediately, but have busy lives and demanding careers.
Chess is stunned to find herself interested in the most popular football player in her hometown.  She further surprises herself with becoming his friend.  Is it actually possible to find something in common with a jock?
While this series often has me on my knees, this story had yanked at my heart.  Mostly as a simultaneous story to The Game Plan - it makes for an interesting way to read the interacting story lines.  I love the characters.  I found the real heart wrenching struggle, and the honest way these main love birds treat and talk to each other refreshing.  Another one well done, by an author whose books are a joy…

This is book #9.5, in the THIRDS series.  This book should be read in the order of series planned, as it will give serious spoilers.  This still can be read as a standalone, but not recommended.
This book jumps in as Dex & Sloan are planning to get married soon.  With all the planning going on, how do you get things done when urban terrorists are trying to interfere in the job?
On the brighter side, a crazy planned bachelor party is about to happen.  Will everyone show?  What surprises will there be?  
This is such a great series!  I was excited to read about more adventures with my favorite THIRDS!  These characters are so great with the humor, loyalty, and most of all conviction.  So exciting to see what it coming next for them.  This was a fast paced installment but worth every page.  I give this story 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This is book #9, in the Cold Fury Hockey series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this great series in order.  Authors note: This book has simultaneous timing with LUCAS, book #8.
Simone forces herself on her brother and his helpless roommate.  She moves in and turns Van's life upside down.  She is immediately attracted to him.  This helps distract Simone from all the serious issues she needs to ponder while living with the guys.
Van is so fed up.  With everything Simone has to offer.  She is pushing him almost to his limits.  Good thing he can resist her.  Or can he?  If only his past was not full of secrets.....
Such a great storyline!  There is such depth to the characters.  I loved the sexy times, the banter, the struggle, it just all paced out so well.  I found myself eagerly turning the pages.  I truly love this series and this story was a great addition.  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws U…

This is book #2, in the Wherever You Go series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Harper and Levi have both sweet and hot history.  All she knows now, is she cannot stop thinking about him.  How he sets her on fire.  The chemistry between them is unreal.

Levi wants another chance with Harper and she seems wary of that.  He is consumed with thoughts about her and their time together.  Thanks to mutual friends, they see one another often.

This is such a fun series!  These characters have remarkable heat.  The banter is fun, the pace solid and consistent.  Was an easy and delightful read.
