REVIEW:
Back in the Game, Meghan Quinn:

You got your single dad romance right here!! Calder was so dreamy, seriously. He was the total freaking package. It was impossible not love him, Rachel is testament to that!

I loved their ease with each other, their cute, fun and sometimes sexy banter. The way they just fell into a effortless relationship *heart eyes*. They were truly destined to be together. I loved this one. Definitely sweet, definitely steamy, definitely funny. 

“And that right there.” She pokes my cheek. “The way you blush, it’s hot. You’re this confident, attractive man, but you can blush as red as a tomato in seconds. Some women like a cocky son of a bitch, not me, I like my men sensitive, sweet, and animals in bed. I know the first two are true, waiting to find out about the third.” She wiggles her eyebrows. This woman, she has me by the fucking balls, and quickly. It’s scary how much I like her, and it’s not just because she’s smart, funny, and keeps me on my toes. It’s the way she can easily pick out my best qualities, the qualities I take great pride in.


And I can't wait to go read Three Blind Dates now, and get Hayden 's story!


Yard Sale, Charleigh Rose:

I about died when I started reading this and my babies were mentioned, I missed them so much. So we were off to a fantastic start.


This one is a one night stand to baby momma and it was so fun and steamy. And then it was a little angst-y and super sweet. You'll love Cam and Mollie, and all the Asher and Briar glimpses!! I loved it. 


I can't freaking wait to read everything Charleigh will give us involving this group of characters, I just seriously loved them all so much and I want so much more of them. Give me everything Charleigh!


“You looked sad.” I shrugged. “I guess I wanted to fix it. Also, your ass looks fucking phenomenal, and I wouldn’t mind spending time with it again. I mean you. You again. And also your ass.”


“The point is, we had chemistry right off the bat. You’re the one girl I didn’t want to leave the next morning. And when I saw you in the lobby, my gut reaction was to be glad that you were back. And the more time I spend with you, the more I fucking want you.” 


Oh Cam, you are seriously great! Isn't he?


Sin Bin, Mandi Beck:


Another one night stand to baby mamma and boy this one was extra steamy, uh uh! You'll absolutely fan yourself at Jason Dagger! 


I fuck women and then they leave. That’s how I like it. But somehow, in a matter of seconds, Stella got under my skin. Maybe it’s because she doesn’t give a shit about who I am. Even after she found out I was a pro athlete. I’m not sure when that started to matter but her not caring and treating me any differently made me want to reward her. With my cock.


Boy is he sexy, and kind of an asshole at face value but then he turns out to be actually sweet. It was super cute.


My eyes fall to her full lips then up to her eyes, nearly black in the dark interior of the truck. Without saying a word, I tug again until we’re meeting over the center console, mouths a breadth away, our eyes touching over every inch of the others face before locking. “I’m going to kiss you right now Stella. Here, when it’s just you and I, because I want to. Not because you’re pregnant with my kid, but because you’re fucking beautiful and I want you more than I’ve ever wanted another woman and I gotta tell you, that scares me. The way you fit so well in my life, with my family, scares me. But it also feeds this need for you.” I admit.


One Good Man, Emma Scott:


Janey dropped her hand from her dry chin, fuming. I expected her to flounce away. But she snatched the napkin out of my hand, dropped it into her bag, and coolly walked away. I wasn’t in love with her, but in that moment, I knew someday I would be.


“Relax, will you? She’s just a girl, not the black plague.” He regarded me for a moment more and then nodded. “Just a girl. Okay, good.” Just a girl, but the first girl I’d ever wanted to know for more than a night.


I think this one could fall in the historical romance genre. Just a little bit.

And I don't read historical romances, they bore me so much but I seriously enjoyed this and I would totally read more of these two. 
I really adored Adrian and Janey. Their story was super sweet and I would love to have more of these two! 

Seriously though, I really wouldn't mind reading more of these two, for real they were just so sweet and good. I loved them. Wholeheartedly. 


Our breaths came hard in between kisses because we weren’t done kissing. In that moment, I didn’t think I would ever be done kissing Adrian. I didn’t want to kiss anyone else ever again. It was too soon to be thinking thoughts like that, but the way Adrian looked at me when we finally came up for air let me think I wasn’t alone. 


Switch Hitter, Sara Ney:


Another I would love to have more of, like for real, please make this a full novel, please! I really freaking enjoyed this!! It was so much fun, and cute and damn that last chapter.. I wanted more of everything with these two.


This was actually the first time I read anything by Sara Ney, but I am planning on reading at least the first book in the How To Date a Douchebag series this month. But knowing how much everyone loves this series, and how funny they say they are, and also taking into account how much I enjoyed this novella, I KNOW I'm gonna love Sara Ney's books and I probably will end up reading the whole series. I can't wait to start! I'm even more excited now than I was before, and it was already a lot ahah.


“Hey Lucy?” “Hmm?” “Know what I’m going to do?” “What?” “I’m going to date the shit out of you.”


Okay, so I know there's one novella missing. Apparently, Adriana Locke's novella wasn't part of the arc so I haven't read it yet. So if you want to know about that one, I guess you're just gonna have to get this anthology, I know that's what I'm gonna do. And believe me, it's 100% worth it!

Emma Scott:
I write romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models. I love to write book lovers; those who have found refuge, companionship, and escape in books, much as we do in real life. I like realism, honesty, authenticity in storytelling. I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.

Meghan Quinn:
A BLONDE AT HEART

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
