he bridesmaid, the best man... 
A Christmas wedding they'll never forget!

A year after being jilted, Ava Keller finds herself forced back up the aisle--as bridesmaid at a beautiful Cape Town wedding. Best man--and Ava's first crush--Noah Giles is the perfect distraction from her painful memories. But their flirtation turns serious when Ava's feelings for him resurface! Hurt when Noah left after their kiss years before, will Ava give their chemistry a second chance?


Ava was left at the alter and rather then letting people see how it affected her she kept it to herself. Its been a year and now her bother is getting married so near the date she was to be married and old feelings are leaving her conflicted. If that wasn't enough her brothers friend Noah is back in the picture after not seeing eachother for so long and once having a thing for each other. Both are working on distracting eachother for the wedding they are supposed to be attending and the more they talk the more things are getting complicated when feeling get involved.

If your a seasonal reader and looking for a book that takes place during the winter holiday season then your definitely in the right place. While this is in the holiday season its more subtle with the festive part so if your looking for something that'll give you that holiday spirit then you might want to look else wear but I will say that this book was really book regardless. I liked the characters and getting to know them. Ava had things repressed and it was tough seeing what she had to go though to keep a cheer on at least for others while shes dealing with being jilted at her own wedding a year before. But while that was sad it was nice to see Noah helping her get though it and create a distraction and it was fun seeing that bit of romance between the two. Overall a pretty great book I really enjoyed it.

Blitz : An Autumn in Paris


An Autumn in Paris by Alix Nichols 

Publication date: November 1st 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Because of Audrey Hepburn, I have foolishly…

a) bought into the whole “Paris is always a good idea” thing without any offscreen evidence,
b) uprooted my son and left my bittersweet memories behind,
c) allowed Thomas—the handsome, caring, way-out-of-my-league vet—to disrupt the humdrum life I had self-prescribed for my Broken Heart Syndrome.

Behind his easy smile and swoon-worthy pecs, Thomas conceals an open wound. No matter how hot his kisses or how genuine his affection, he’s still reeling. He can’t move on.

And I can’t risk falling for him. I have a child to raise—a preteen boy who needs his mom to be all there.

But as autumn strips the trees of their leaves, falling for Thomas is exactly what I do. Throwing caution to the wind, I dare to hope for a future with him…

…until the past comes knocking.

Can we handle it or will it break us forever?

Whether you’re a fan of timeless movies like “Sabrina” or prefer steamy contemporary romance novels, “An Autumn in Paris” has something for you to love.

Escape to Paris, and let this sweet, fun and sensual tale give you all the feels!



Baloo clings to me, scrabbling and whining as I try to set him down.
“Do you know the breed?” Dr. Brousse asks, studying Baloo.
I try to peel his paws off me. “Likely a Terrier cross. He’s a rescue dog.”
Losing my patience with the uncooperative Baloo, I force him onto the table without realizing that one of his paws is in my shirt.
The fabric tears, buttons fly off, and the next instant I’m staring at my breasts on full display, nipples prodding my unpadded, wire-free bra. I lift my eyes in horror and catch him staring at my boobs.
He averts his gaze immediately.
I cover my chest with my left hand, the right one gripping Baloo so he wouldn’t fall off the high table.
The vet takes hold of the dog. “I have him.”
Letting go, I yank the lapels of my shirt over my breasts and hold them together, hoping my face isn’t too red.
Except, I know it is. My cheeks and ears feel hot enough to spontaneously combust at any moment.

Review : Erik


Erik by Sawyer Bennett

An Arizona Vengeance Novel 
Release Date: November 5, 2018 
Goodreads Link: Click
The Arizona Vengeance are developing a reputation on the ice as one of hockey’s top teams. But one player’s reputation off the ice might just keep him from scoring. . . .

I’m having the time of my life with my new brothers on the Arizona Vengeance. We may be an expansion team, but after notching some big wins, the entire league knows to watch out for Erik Dahlbeck. That’s me.

The only person who doesn’t seem to think I’m so great? Blue Gardner, the hot-as-f*** flight attendant on our team plane. I sure wouldn’t mind joining the mile-high club with her, but besides bringing me lukewarm coffee, she won’t give me the time of day. Whatever I did to rub Blue the wrong way, my teammates think it’s hilarious. After all, we’re used to women flocking to us. #puckbunnies

When I run into Blue back on land, I’m shocked to learn how she spends her time off: taking care of her handicapped brother. There are layers to this girl I never imagined, layers I can’t wait to peel away. And that’s a new feeling for me.

But first I’ve got to find a way to melt that ice-cold stare. Because as much as I try to pretend I don’t care what Blue thinks of me, how can you not care when you’re falling for someone?
Purchase Bishop:
Another great book by Sawyer Bennett she is one author I can genuinely said has never disappointed me with her great and unique books. This book was no different with a new and different set of characters  Erik and Blue. Both have had a brief encounter that Erik doesnt seem to remember and Blue isn't about to remind him. Shes got her own set of things she got to take over. She was once young and wild and now got things to do and doesn't want anyone one Blue to be a distraction. I loved that even though the past had to shape her Blue was loyal to her bother, he brother needed her and she wanted what was best. I loved that Erik was loving enough to help her out and do what he could. Obviously things can't stay perfect in the little love bubble that Blue and Erik gets but its interesting seeing how they deal with situations that come their way. In usual Sawyer Bennett fashion you can expect a great book with plenty of steamy scenes but a book with an interesting and enjoyable storyline. I really enjoyed reading this book it was pretty great. Highly Recommend.

A LOVE SO SWEET - Now Available
UNRAVELING THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE - Releasing January 23rd
Jade is a veterinarian who is back in her hometown after an issue with her last job. The last thing she ever expected was to run into Rex. Both of their parents have had a fued and because of the feud they've been trying real hard to keep away but now the attraction is undenyable and they can't help themselves no matter how much they try. Now its a matter of keeping a secret relationships and with a small town like theirs and how close everyone is secrets don't stay quiet for long.

I love a good forbidden romance and this book was perfect for that. I also loved that with all the heat that was going around it just toed the line without getting in depth of what goes on when they are intimate. I loved that romance that was brewing and wondering when because we all know secrets don't stay that way for long. I was wondering what the fallout out would be. I couldn't help but root for the two but its hard to go against family so I was curious to see what would become of this cute couple. Overall I really enjoyed this book and getting to know the characters and actually seeing how everything tied up in the end it was a really good book.

Rex watched Jade stomp away, and he let out the breath he hadn’t realized he’d been holding. When she’d bent over the table to sign her name, her shorts had ridden up just enough to expose the tender skin where her thighs ended and her rear end began, and he’d just about lost it. He’d been with plenty of beautiful women, but there was something about Jade that made his heart soar. He’d first noticed it when she was a carefree teenager, vibrant and eager in everything she did, with a ready smile. Even then she had a body that wouldn’t quit, and now she was harder, louder, and her body had matured in ways that set his blood on fire. That strange combination touched him in all the right places.

Why’d she have to come back to town? He’d done so well not thinking about her when she was away at school. And now, every time he saw her, his body reacted with a visceral, carnal need. As she stomped away, he wondered why the one woman who lit his veins on fire had to be the daughter of his father’s only enemy.

Before she can continue on with her self-depreciative speech I gently, but firmly, place my hand over her mouth. “Enough, Ellie,” I tell her, my tone leaving no room for misinterpretation. I mean business.
To my absolute shock, Ellie listens. Her jaw slams shut beneath my hand. I expected her to lick it or try to bite me—it wouldn’t be the first time—but she does nothing. Her eyes lock on mine, uncertainty and confusion shining in their depths.
I drop my hand slowly from her mouth, then slide it around her jaw. “Enough,” I whisper as I move in closer, bringing my chest just an inch from hers. Keeping our eyes locked together I explain my frustration. “You say men don’t want to stay with you because you’re a lot to handle…and Red, you’re right.”
Her entire body solidifies.
Sliding my hand down her throat I feel her pulse race rapidly under my palm. The further my hand travels, the softer her body becomes. It’s just her stubborn resistance keeping her from melting into me the way I know she wants to.
When I reach her hip, I squeeze. A tiny moan escapes her before she can stop it, and I smirk. Not once have I allowed my eyes to roam her incredible body. I read everything she refuses to say aloud in her green depths. She knows I’m different. She knows this thing with us is different.
I know she says she’s ready for sex, but apprehension is clear in her eyes. And I refuse to take her until she is as sure about me as I am about her. Bringing my free hand to her other hip I curl my fingers into her flesh that peeks from her between her T and shorts, then lift and swing her into my lap. The startled look on her face vanishes the instant she feels my erection pushing up into her ass. Her gaze morphs into desire and
lust.
“I want you, Angel. I’ve wanted you from the second I laid eyes on you. You fascinate me. Entertain me. Calm me. Captivate me. Arouse me. And you do it all, without even trying.” I press my forehead against hers as I relish the feel of her rapid breaths against my lips. “Don’t doubt me. Don’t doubt this. Us,” I plead, sick of dictating how she should feel, but desperate for her to understand. “I am not them.”
Finally, after what feels like an eternity, Ellie nods against my forehead. “Okay,” she whispers. I feel the relief that one single word brings, all the way down to my goddamned toes. Her hips rock against me, ever so gently, teasing me. Her soft hand slides around my neck, coming to rest in the hair at my nape. She stokes her long fingers through my hair and I tip my head back, letting her take control, and loving everysecond of it.
She presses an open-mouthed kiss to my throat, scraping her teeth against the sensitive flesh as she moves down to my collar bone. My cock is rigid, straining to be freed. Her ass pushes harder against it, grinding down on my length. My fingers dig further into her lush hips as I take over, shifting her until my cock presses against her centre, then I set the pace.


JB Heller is an average Aussie housewife in her early 30’s with a wicked sexy imagination. JB and her family live in Central Queensland, Australia on a mini farm of sorts, surrounded animals.

She writes both romantic suspense and contemporary romance with a healthy splash of wit. You’ll love her dashingly handsome alpha hero’s and their feisty counterparts. Then swoon over her beautifully damaged, and flawed characters.

Most day’s JB can be found glued to her laptop, taking advantage of school hours now that all three of her kidlets are in school. Or trolling Pinterest for her next potential muse. And when she needs a break from the voices in her head she indulges in one of her favourite past times, reading or binging on netflix.
