Weekend Reads 8/31/18
A second-chance romance from the #1 NYT bestseller of The Bet, Matchmaker and Elite series!
Love of his life.
The last person in the world he wanted to see...ever.
And now that he's working beside her every day, he can't escape her. Her scent, glimpses of her smile, even the tension in the air that makes his body hum with the kind of need he'd only experienced with one person-all of it is driving him over the edge.
Brant Wellington was certain of three things:
Alcohol wasn't going to solve this.
He really was losing his F-ing mind.
And his gorgeous ex-wife was going to be the death of him.

Piper James’ first year at Whitney Briggs is starting off great, new friends, a potential sorority, and plenty of guys to choose from. Once she secures a spot in Alpha Chi, she’ll have the greatest freshman year on record. But it just takes one look at the Alpha Chi “hit list” of things she needs to do to get in and she know there’s trouble—and trouble’s name is Owen Vincent.

Wild Kisses (3:AM Kisses 7) Romantic Comedy First base never felt so good!
From the NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestselling author, Addison Moore...Cosmopolitan Magazine calls Addison's books...easy, frothy fun!
***3:AM Kisses - The USA Today Bestseller!***
Taming a player sounds impossible. Owen is the only player she knows and he certainly fits the bill, cocky, too many notches to count on his bedpost, and an aversion to relationships. Making Owen believe she wants him is pretty low, even if this entire fling is just a means to an end. But now she can’t stop thinking about him. Yeah, he thinks he’s God’s gift to women, but now a part of her is kind of starting to agree. Girls are still dripping all over him like honey. Piper thinks there’s no way he’d be interested in a commitment with her. Maybe Alpha Chi isn’t what she wants. Maybe it’s Owen?
It’s a brand new year at Whitney Briggs and things are about to get wild.

Man Crush Monday
It's Monday again and the final week of August! Where in the heck has the summer gone because this morning I woke up feeling the chill in the air and thinking it was more of a fall day rather than late August.
My Cowgirl released last week and I can't thank everyone enough for making it another amazing release! I have ten books out and have so many more to come. Next up, werewolves.
I'm continuing my work on Bottoming Out, Moto X #4 this week and reading some great books. I picked up three awesome reads from Harper Sloan over the weekend and I'm reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to my boys.
School starts for my oldest tomorrow and I'm ready for the break but hard for me to believe how fast he has grown up! Same with my little one. It will be nice though to not have fighting anymore, at least for the most part.
I hope y'all have a great week!
I have two books for you today!
One I shared earlier in the week since it is a new release and the second in the follow up book by another author I love.
I hope you enjoy them like I did.

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken proves that everyone scores to win. But off the field, a fumble can change the entire game.
Pro footballer Miller Quinton would do anything for his best friend and teammate—including “fake dating” his friend’s sister. What no one knows is that seven months ago in Vegas, Miller and Kinsey did a whole lot more than just kiss. Miller knows that this cheerleader is off-limits to him and any guy on the team. Still, he can’t stop himself.
Kinsey’s whole world is on the verge of crumbling. Her dad has cancer. Her overprotective brother is falling apart. Dating Miller may be a fake-out, but he’s the one guy who can make her forget about everything—including all the reasons she stayed away from football players. With each heated moment, Miller feels more like a safe place…even though he’s not safe at all.
Now temptation is testing every rule in the game of love. But how long can they go on playing when winning is a harder goal than either of them imagined?
Infraction by Rachel Van Dyken was a blast of fall football year! Frustration may hit you at times with one being a runner and the other hiding something in her past, but the ending is worth it!

Returning home after her first year away, Aspen Masters is looking forward to helping out on her family’s ranch and being with her family and friends once more. And seeing her best friend, Dylan Foster, gives her butterflies the closer she gets to home.
Everything is about to change for Aspen and she won’t know how to handle it. She has held onto feelings for Dylan for so long she has grown used to keeping them hidden from him to preserve their friendship.
Unknown to Aspen, Dylan gets the wake-up call of a lifetime thanks to her brother, helping him see something he was blind to for so long.
Recently single, Dylan Foster is done with women and their jealousy over his closeness with his best friend. When helping Hunter, Dylan comes to realize that he quite possibly may have feelings for Aspen, but he has no clue how to go about addressing it with her.
Friends since the day Aspen was born, neither of them want to risk what they have together and what their families have established.
But sometimes, friendship isn’t enough.
Romance author Brooke May spends her days writing whatever her overactive imagination has brewed up and her evenings reading while she works alongside her mom. Telling stories is second natural to her, from a young age she has told anyone who would listen what she had thought of. Now a mom of two boys, she splits her time writing, playing with her sons, and of course, hiking, hunting, fishing, and four-wheeling in her beloved Bighorn Mountains.

8.20.18 Man Crush Monday!
It's Monday and that means a new Man Crush for the week!
I am going to be doing something different from now on and see how it goes. With all the changes Facebook is making that will affect authors and our ability to self-promote ourselves and such, I'm going to be turning my focus on my webpage as well as my Instagram and Twitter accounts.
I will be posting on Mondays for what my plans are for the week, Tuesdays for teasers, Fridays with a weekly wrap up and my weekend reads, and cover reveal and release days as well as posts about ARCs I have read for other authors.
So, today is day one of something new. I'm not used to sharing a whole lot about myself because honestly I'm a private person. But here we go!
My weekend was a pretty laid back one which happens often in our house. The rain on Saturday kept my oldest from doing his tackle scrimmage so we took our boys to see Alpha. They loved it and it wasn't half bad for us, just really predictable.
I don't write on the weekends unless I'm home alone which never happens, so last night while the warden caught up on Shameless, I worked on an outline for My Cowboy #5, Hunter's book which will be titled "She's No Cowgirl." So while y'all are getting ready for Aspen and Dylan's story in My Cowgirl coming out this Thursday, I'm working my way toward the next story.
I honestly never thought I would be writing any of the kids' stories but they are steadily coming to me.
BUT that isn't what my writing is consisted of for the week. I am well of a third into the fourth Moto X book which will follow Jax's storyline. There are some similar scenes from Roosted, Cased, and even Pinned in it but none of it is focused on Axle and Paige. Kind of like what I did with My Cowboy and Faith in My Cowboy.
I'm also thinking up something else I may release on this website or in a newsletter, but it is still being developed.
Don't forget that I'm having a release party starting at 5 pm EST on Thursday to celebrate My Cowgirl's release. Book number 10! I can't believe I've reached this milestone!
Those are my plans for the week. I'll see you later with a teaser from My Cowgirl tomorrow.
