Benson Bayou Beauregard is the president of the Bear Bottom Guardians MC, and the grandson of the Sergeant at Arms for the Dixie Wardens MC. He’s a mountain of a man and the warden of a prison, and there’s only one thing that can scare him—being told that he’s the father of a three-year-old little girl. A three-year-old little girl that has no clue who he is. Hell, he only finds out about the little cherub when a woman from child protective services comes by and rocks his world before leaving the girl in his shocked arms. Every single thing he thinks he knows goes up in a cloud of smoke. To make matters worse, the woman that he’s been trying to convince to give him a chance takes one look at the little girl and tells him that he’s just not in the right place to handle both of them. But Bayou was never one to back down from a challenge. He can handle a three-year-old girl that acts exactly like him, and he can more than take on the fiery red-head that sets flame to his blood while he’s at it.
ADD TO GOODREADS
At first, I didn't think I'd like this book as much as the other books but then I really got into it because it struck me as little different and it took me back to the Freebirds books. The other books I've been reading from LLV have all been rather predictable and that's not always a bad thing, but it's getting to where I can read them pretty quickly. I liked that the heroine is a strong role model and she takes no crap. She more often than not tries to save everyone else. Of course, this book has the LLV suspense and Beau always saves the day but that's okay because he's a beloved character. His daughter is adorable!! This again was an out-of-the-park book for me.

Bulldozer by P. Dangelico
Release Date: November 12th
Bulldozer, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by P. Dangelico.
Amanda Shaw has pulled it together. It’s taken a couple of years, a boatload of hard work, and a ton of self-discipline, but she finally has her problems in a headlock. Her yoga studio in the city has become so successful she’s opening one near the beach, and her relationship with her ten-year-old son is improving every day. The last thing she needs is a monkey wrench thrown into her smoothly running life.
Grant Hendricks is one big monkey wrench. The four time Defensive Player of the Year, three time NFL sack leader, and all-around football god has officially hit rock bottom. A devastating back injury means he may have to retire and that scares him more than doctors telling him that the next hit could leave him paralyzed. All he needs is a quiet place to think and his teammate’s beach house sounds like just the place. Problem is, the woman already living there.

For a beat we stare at each other, neither of us voicing the undeniable truth that
something is happening between us. Something deep and real and scary.
He pins me to the side of the pool, his arms framing mine, and leans closer. I can’t
pry my eyes away from his lips, full and slick with water.
“You make me want to try,” he quietly confesses.
I’ve told myself a thousand times to stop thinking about the way he looks at me. Or
that he’s so sweet with Sam it brings tears to my eyes every time I watch those two
interact. Or that Roxy fell hard and fast in love with him from the outset and everyone
knows dogs are the best judges of character.
I’ve told myself to stop staying awake at night wanting him but he makes it nearly
impossible. His eyes fall to my lips and I swallow, goose bumps breaking out from my
hairline to my toes.
“Try what?” I ask in an equally quiet voice. Reaching out, I dare to run my
fingertips over the short beard from the side of his face to his chin. His thick lashes
beaded with water flutter shut.
“Be a better man for you.”
“You’re the best man I know already…nothing to try for.”
“You keep at it like that and I’m going to kiss you,” those perfectly shaped lips
murmur. It sounds like a threat and a promise and part of me hopes it’s both.
About P. Dangelico
Dangelico loves romance in all forms, cuddly creatures (four legged and two), really bloody sexy pulp, the NY Jets (although she’s reconsidering after this season), and to while away the day at the barn (apparently she does her best thinking shoveling horse crap). What she’s not enamored with is referring to herself in the third person and social media so don’t expect her to get on Twitter anytime soon. Oh, and although she was born in Italy, she’s been Jersey Strong since she turned six.

Wade had everything he could ever want in life...then he lost it. Now, his life—his forever girl—is living in a house he built for her while he’s struggling to move on and find meaning where there isn’t any to be found. Landry Hill was his girl. his everything. His high school sweetheart. His first kiss. His first and only love. His old lady and wife Then one day he does something monumentally stupid. And she walks away knowing she’ll never come back. Fast forward five years, and he’s still just as in love with her now as he was when she left. The only problem is that she’s moved on with her life, found a new man, and seemingly forgotten him. Then there’s Wade—stuck in the same awful place where she abandoned him. The only thing he has left is his job as a police office and the Bear Bottom MC. Just when they both think things can’t get any worse, life kicks them both in the teeth, and Landry finds out really quick that the only person she can depend on is the one that let her walk away. With understanding comes a deal. One that Landry has no hope of ever breaking free from, and one Wade will do everything in his power to make a reality. But one thing is still certain. The force that split them apart is still out there. And there’s no hope of escaping fate.
“No, Wade,” I snarled. “It’s not just that easy.”
He frowned. “What are you talking about? I realize that it’s tough, and it’s going to hurt, but baby, this is your sister! Your sister is your family. Your blood. You can’t just leave her in need.”
That was when I felt everything inside of me still.
“The first time I donated bone marrow to my sister, I was a toddler. Barely the age of two and a half,” I said, almost in a whisper. “The second time, I was four. The third? Seven. Do you see a pattern, Sergeant?”
Wade frowned and tilted his head to the side, confusion spreading over his face.
“My parents had me to be their donor baby,” I whispered. “They never wanted me. I was never allowed to be a child. I was a useful object to them.”
Wade looked startled. “What do you mean by not being able to be a child?”
I laughed maniacally.
“I’m saying that I was bred to be their baby’s saving grace,” I hissed. “And I’m not doing it anymore. My sister is an asshole. My father’s a conniving bastard, and my mother is the biggest bitch known to man. Don’t you think that there’s a reason that I’ve never spoken of them?”
He looked at me like I was crazy. “Honey, you told me that you had a falling out. But this is your sister.”
I looked over at where my sister was sitting out on the front porch, silently crying her big, fat crocodile tears.
She’d always been good at them.
There was a time when I was younger that all she had to do was get that look on her face, and I’d be scared shitless.
Because if Lina wasn’t happy, nobody was happy, least of all me.
There was always going to be hell to pay if a single tear fell down Lina’s perfect cheek.
Lina also looked like a little China doll. She had perfect blonde curls, soft, milky white skin, blue eyes the color of a crayon, and she was tiny.
I, on the other hand, was none of those things but short.
I had brown hair to her blonde, brown eyes to her blue, freckled skin to her perfect complexion, and when I tried hard, I was also skinny.
Except, lately, I had been drinking beer and having the time of my life—living it like I’d always wanted to live it.
“I won’t do it,” I refused again, sounding petulant now.
I knew he didn’t understand.
Deep down, Wade was a really good man.
He’d experienced a lot in his life. He was a cop and had seen some very bad things.
But, what he did not have, was a bad family.
His family was awesome. His mom was the best mother in the whole world, and his dad was the kind of father I’d only ever dreamed of having when I was younger.
God, even his brother was the best.
He had no clue what it was like to hate your family like I did.
Hell, the only reason he hadn’t heard of them sooner was because my sister hadn’t gotten sick enough to need me.
Had she, Wade would’ve learned the truth about who my family was a hell of a lot quicker.
“I’m going to tell her that you’re thinking about it, and we can discuss it more later, okay?” Wade offered. “I don’t want you to make any hasty decisions because you’re overreacting.”
A lot of this book had me going back and forth…Okay, so first of all – if my house burned down and it was some nutjob…I would lose my crap. Landry just batts an eyelash. Her daycare place is burned down and she just stays strong. Now, I don’t know about you but I would be losing my everloving mind. I loved the book, don’t get me wrong. I love almost everything LLV writes but you have to suspend belief on some of the things that go on. I do that and I enjoy it most of the time. I just had a hard time believing that a grandmother went over the rails that quickly for her daughter with no thought to her grandchildren and I work in the field of crazy. It was an enjoyable read though!!

Genre: New Adult Romance (Standalone)
Release Date: October 29, 2018
Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills returns with an all-new swoon-fest of a novel about what happens when you look beyond labels and take a chance on love.
Sexy Athlete: I bet you…
Penelope Graham: Burn in hell, quarterback.
The late night text is random but Penelope knows exactly who “Sexy Athlete” is. And why she shouldn't take his wager.
Walks on water and God's gift to women.
Just ask him.
His bet? He promises Penelope he’ll win her the heart of the nerdy guy she’s been crushing on. His plan—good old-fashioned jealousy. Once her crush sees her kissing Ryker, he'll realize what he's missing. Sounds legit, right? The only question is…why is Ryker being so nice to her?
Lover of sparkly vampires and calculus.
His mortal enemy.
Penelope knows she shouldn’t trust a jock, but what’s a girl to do when she needs a date to Homecoming? And Ryker’s keeping a secret, another bet, one that could destroy Penelope’s heart forever.
Will the quarterback score the good girl or will his secret mean everyone loses at this game of love?
Find out in this all-new standalone novel…
"I Bet You is a charming, sexy, funny and downright swoony romance set amongst all of the delicious fun of college football in the South. It's damn good." Mary at USA Today HEA
"You find me someone better that writes football players... I'll be waiting because you'll never find better than Ilsa." We Like Them Dark, Goodreads
"I Bet You is enemies-to-lovers GOLD. I devoured this funny, feel-good perfection in ONE DAY!" Dylan Allen, Bestselling Author
I don't remember Ryker from Book 1 but I loved him in this book!! I loved Ryker and Penelope together. I thought that it was going to be another football book that left the hero a reformed playboy, however, this one was a little different because he was already a really sweet guy from the beginning of the book. Now, he might have been a jerk in the first book but in this book - he was pretty spectacular. I loved reading about his inner thoughts and the things going on in his head. What I didn't like was that little prig Archer. Was I the only one hoping he'd hit a tree while drunk? No? Well I did...So, that must make me a horrible person. I would give this series 5-stars so far.
Wall Street Journal best-selling author Ilsa Madden-Mills writes about strong heroines and sexy alpha males that sometimes you just want to slap. She's best known for her angsty and funny New Adult college romances.
A former high school English teacher, she adores all things Pride and Prejudice; Mr. Darcy is her ultimate hero.
She's also addicted to frothy coffee beverages, Vampire Dairies, and any book featuring unicorns and sword-wielding females.

“Smart, sassy, and utterly delightful! Get ready to fall head-over-heels in love with Lucy, one of the wittiest and most inspiring heroines I’ve ever met!” - Annika Martin New York Times bestselling author
Muffin Top, a hot romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn is available now!
The only thing about me that’s a size zero is the filter on my mouth. I’ve got a big personality, a big rack, and a big number on the scale. And I’m perfectly fine with that.
But when some random guy suggests I might not be eating alone if I’d ordered a salad instead of a hamburger I’m shocked silent, which is a feat, trust me.
That brings us to one sexy fireman named Frankie Hartigan. He’s hot. He’s funny… And he’s just apologized for being late for our “date” then glared at the fat-shaming jerk. Next thing I know, he’s sitting down and ordering himself dinner.
I have no problem telling him I don’t need a pity date . . . unless of course it’s to my high school reunion next week. Oops where did that last bit come from? And what do I do now that he’s said yes?!
Because this is no make-over story, and I think Frankie is using me for something. I just have to figure out what…

USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip. She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name. Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Series: Breakaway Novel
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 16, 2018 Cover Designer: RBA Designs Cover Model: Jack Storer Photographer: FuriousFotog
“PHENOMENAL!! LOVED LOVED LOVED!!!! This is an awesome sports romance! A very happy lifting story!” ~ Amazon Review
“Full of both heartwarming sweetness and the perfect amount of steam Off The Ice is an addictive read that will steal your heart!” ~ The Red Hatter Book Blog
“I loved this book! I really feel like it was the best one of the series. L.P. Dover has never disappointed me with any of her stories and with each book I see her grow as a writer.” ~ Amazon Review
He’s always made the scoring plays, both on and off the ice, but this time he has a new goal … the one for Meghan’s heart.
I’m Justin Davis, all-star center for the Charlotte Strikers. For years, I chased the spotlight, not only with hockey, but through television as well. That’s why I decided to play the bachelor on Rich and Single. Unfortunately, I was stuck with a fake fiancée from hell who I couldn’t stand to be around. Now that our contract is up, I’m allowed to do whatever I want, with whoever I want. I plan to take full advantage of my newfound freedom.
After being on the show, people don’t recognize me for hockey anymore, even with just winning the Stanley Cup for my team. That’s why I’m spending the off season in a remote cabin in Wyoming where the chances of people knowing me are slim. Space is what I need, but when a down to earth beauty needs help on her ranch, I can’t resist. Meghan Taylor is exactly what I’ve been looking for, even though I’m not the kind of man she wants.
Getting her to see the real me has its challenges, but the more time I spend with her, the easier it is for her to see that I’m not the same guy she knows from TV. Being away from the media is one thing, but as soon as I’m back in the spotlight, I’m afraid it’ll change what we have. I don’t want to lose her, but I also can’t hide away in Wyoming forever. It’s a choice I’m not ready to make.

Title: Listen Pitch
Series: There's No Crying in Baseball
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: October 16, 2018 Cover Model: Jacob Wilson Photographer: FuriousFotog
Rhys Rivera is the star short-stop for the Longview Lumberjacks. Many know him, even more love him. He has a pretty face, a quick smile, and an air of danger about him that everyone seems to adore.
He’s not known as the bad boy of baseball for nothing.
It all started with his father, who decided to be a criminal mob boss, then die.
Fortunately for his uncle, Rhys wants absolutely nothing to do with the family business and runs before anyone can figure out which way is up.
By the time his uncle, the successor to his father’s criminal empire, thinks to look for him, Rhys has made too big of a name for himself to be taken out quietly, and he wants to keep it that way.
Fast forward eight years, and Rhys is living life one breath at a time, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. That shoe coming in the form of a nosy neighbor who has no idea just how hot she is in her mail carrier uniform.
Her sweet little body and positive outlook on life make him want to laugh at how naïve she is when it comes to the way of the world.
The harder he tries to stay away, the weaker he seems to get, until one day he decides to put his morals on hold long enough to satisfy his cravings.
One time is all he needs—or so he tells himself.
But then two pink lines change everything, and all of a sudden, he doesn’t have just himself to worry about anymore.
I love most of LLV's books but this one missed the mark for me I'm sad to say. Just the whole story about the mob and Rhys being a baseball player was farfetched with the whole "his uncle but not his uncle trying to kill him" just didn't do it for me. I had to suspend a lot of belief with this story. I really miss the old day of Freebirds and The Dixie Wardens. I loved the heroine but the instalove was really out there for me also. This is my first negative review I've ever written in all the books she written and overall I'm sure that someone is going to love it but it just wasn't me this time, unfortunately. I think everyone should not go by my word alone as I was in the middle of a hurricane and downright miserable with no electricity and hating the world so that could have also colored my view....take this in the spirit that it was read and written.

Title: Kaznachei's Pain
Series: Bratva & Cosa Notra Series Book 5
Author: V.F. Mason
Genre: Dark Mafia Romance
~ can be read as standalone ~
Release Date: October 5, 2018
A long time ago, life was nothing but never-ending suffering.
The brotherhood welcomed me with open arms, giving me a chance even though I hated everything about it.
For years I lived on the edge of desperation, seeking solace in things that never gave me peace.
Until she showed up, changing everything…and demanding it all.
A beautiful yet stubborn FBI agent who made me crazy with every breath she took.
Unfortunately, her presence awakened the evils of my past that would not rest until they destroyed what I held dear to my heart.
VF Mason is a must-read for me ever since Psychopath's Prey and this book didn't disappoint. There were some parts that are really hard to read just based on the fact that they're kind of gory, but if you love a good romantic thriller - this is the book for you. The characters are reoccurring and you don't have to read all the other books in the series but it does help if you have read them. I actually recommend that you read them in order to get the most out of the series and because I don't want to give any of the plot away or tell you anything about what happens - I'm not telling you anything about what happens. Just know if you've read the series, it's totally worth it and if you haven't- you really should.
V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her momma over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied filmmaking and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn't happen.
Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it.When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favorite authors.
