Bad At Love Cover

Blurb

Bad at making decisions or bad at love? Either way, Kendall Blakemore doesn’t trust his judgment. He falls too hard, too fast, and always for the wrong guy. Needing a major shakeup, Kendall moves into his own place for the first time and seizes a new career opportunity. But everything he thought he wanted turns out to be the last thing he needs. When loneliness threatens to derail Kendall’s good behavior, he decides to rent out his spare bedroom. What could go wrong? Try a tenant who’s temptation incarnate.

Bad at commitment or born to roam? Either way, US Deputy Marshal Kurt Dandridge feels trapped. Maybe staying in one place for too long is the source of his unhappiness, or maybe it’s because he’s engaged to the wrong person. Finding his fiancé in bed with another man takes care of one problem but creates another. Ridge needs a place to live. He’d leave Savannah altogether if not for his vow to apprehend an elusive fugitive. Renting a room from Kendall Blakemore seems like the perfect solution until Ridge finds himself falling for the alluring man. Would one kiss derail his course? And could he stop at just one?

Hurts so good. Chemistry burns between them—hot, consuming, and impossible to ignore. And why should they? Kendall and Ridge are consenting adults who know the score. Being bad has never felt so good, but it’s a slippery slope to navigate. One misstep could have disastrous consequences for both men.

Bad at Love is a standalone novel within the Sinister in Savannah universe where both characters first appeared. It is not necessary to read that series first. Bad at Love is a romantic suspense that’s heavier on the romance than the suspense.

Best one yet and a truly beautiful romance

58943601._SY475_Wheels Down by Beth Bolden

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As ever, I beta read this for Beth but this is probably the entry that I had the smallest amount of commentary on because this is, hands down, my favourite in all the Food Truck Warriors series (so far! Ren is up next so who knows 😁 )

Most of that is down to both Shaw and Ross being so utterly perfect for each other.

Shaw is everything you’d ever want to have not only in a book boyfriend, but as a friend too. He’s kindness personified, he listens without judgement, and he’s sexy as Hell!

Ross though, my poor broken Ross.

Oh he needed someone to see him, to really see him, and then to hold a mirror in front of him which showed what a wonderful person he truly is, not the shattered soul he’s been left after so much betrayal.

I LOVE these two individually but as a pair they own my heart. Their friendship is wonderful, but when things move between the sheets, well they light up like a bonfire on July 4th!

It’s wonderful to see how Ross’ begins to get his confidence and his confusion over his feelings for Shaw are so sweet, it’s clear Ross knows what he feels is more than friendship, but he’s not had the experience to be able to put a name to what it is.

Until the moment he realises it’s love and then I just got all swoony 😁😍

It was also lovely to see the rest of the Food Truck gang go out of their way to try and include Ross more, even Tony, as they realised he’d been as much a victim of his insane former partner’s actions as Ash was – (see Full Speed Ahead for details of that!

Also Ren in this book is fabulous and I can not wait now for his book which will, if all goes as expected, finally wrap up this brilliant series from Beth.

What a high note to end this fabulous sports romance series on

Puck Drills FINALPuck Drills & Quick Thrills by Eden Finley & Saxon James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Best everything!

***

I am bereft. I seriously did not want this series to end, but end it has and what a book to close out on.

Westly and Jasper are everything! They start off as sort of enemies, but they’re not really, both simply misunderstand the other and when both become privy to the traumas the other has had to live with, things rapidly change.

It’s obvious from the start they’re mutually attracted to each other, sparks fly each time they’re in the same room. We’ve also had brief peeks into their character via the other books in the series but you soon find out, that’s only scratched the surface.

West, oh West. He’s struggling so badly with looking after his orphaned siblings and trying to keep a stable home for them and he’s still not fully come to terms with everything he had to give up. We’ve seen West through Asher’s eyes Line Mates & Study Dates but that isn’t the real West.

When he and Jasper finally get it together, OMG the sexual chemistry blows your head off. All West wants to do is give up control and Jasper, because of his background, well he’s 100% on board with taking it.

I felt so much for both of them, the emotions really do get put through the ringer in this book but it’s never gratuitous, there’s also always the hallmark humour that these two authors have brought throughout the CU Universe and it was wonderful to catch up with some of those other characters.

There’s so much goes on that the book flies by and I was in two minds because I needed to find out where they would end up and whether things would work out with the team in the Frozen Four too, but I also didn’t want to turn the last page.

Honestly, I don’t want to say goodbye to CU Hockey, or the wider world of the NHL pro-leagues because it’s been so much fun.
