OVERRULED : THE LEGAL BRIEFS SERIES BOOK ONE by EMMA CHASE

Overruled by Emma Chase

SYNOPSIS

Emma Chase, New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled Series, returns with the first installment of the Legal Briefs Series. 

As a DC defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don’t call him the Jury Charmer for nothing – with his southern drawl, disarming smile and captivating green eyes – he’s a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him and women want to be thoroughly cross examined by him.

Stanton’s a man with a plan. And for a while, life was going according to that plan.

Until the day he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart and mother of his beloved ten-year old daughter. Jenny is getting married — to someone who isn’t him.

That’s definitely not part of the plan.
***

Sofia Santos is a city raised, no-nonsense litigator who plans to become the most revered criminal defense attorney in the country. She doesn’t have time for relationships or distractions.

But when Stanton, her “friend with mind-blowing benefits” begs for help, she finds herself out of her element, out of her depth, and obviously out of her mind. Because she agrees to go with him – to The-Middle-Of-Nowhere, Mississippi – to do all she can to help Stanton win back the woman he loves. 

Her head tells her she’s crazy…and her heart says something else entirely.
*** 

What happens when you mix a one stop-light town, two professional arguers, a homecoming queen, four big brothers, some Jimmy Dean sausage and a gun-toting Nana? 

The Bourbon flows, passions rise and even the best laid plans get overruled by the desires of the heart.

‘Sex with Stanton is exhilarating; working beside him is a privilege. But loving him…that just hurts.”

It goes without saying; we didn’t need to be asked twice if we wanted to review Overruled! Emma Chase is so proficient in writing from a male point of view, we knew we were in for some fun and once again she nailed it.  She had us believing we were listening to the inner workings of the male psyche as though it really WAS Stanton regaling us with HIS words.

‘She’s frank, direct, but also fun. A woman I consider a friend – someone I enjoy going out with as much as I enjoy going down on.”

Stanton Shaw……wow! What a man! A clever, cocky, confident git who could charm the knickers off a Nun.  A smooth as silk lawyer with a dirty mouth and a Southern drawl that left us swooning and melting at every ‘darlin’ he uttered.

“You are beautiful.”  He says in a low, awed voice, with just a touch of southern.
Three words
.

There was more to Stanton than met the eye, he was also a loving and devoted father to his gorgeous little girl Presley and fiercely dedicated to his friends and family. The scenes with Presley stole our breaths and had us melting in a puddle. Our hearts were in danger of overflowing with love and cuteness between these two. Warning: Guard those ovaries ladies because Daddy Stanton is a sight to behold!

We will admit we were a tad concerned at the beginning that the story was going to head down a certain road and both voiced concerns about it in one of our progressive phone catch- ups but there was NO WAY we couldn’t continue with the story.

“You’re so stuck on what you think is supposed to be, that you’re missin’ what’s right in front of you.”

We adored Sofia. Sofia and Stanton were perfect together. They kicked arse in the courtroom and burned with passion in the bedroom. Sofia was also the perfect foil for Stanton’s acerbic wit, giving as good as she got. Sofia was a rational, intelligent woman who was able to control everything except her heart. The occasional POV’s from Sofia were heartbreaking as we saw behind the ‘friends’ façade she displayed to those around her where Stanton was concerned.

This book ticked the boxes! It was passionate, funny, heart-warming, frustrating and different to what we expected, in a good way. By frustrating we mean there were times we wanted to slap Stanton upside the head over his cluelessness at recognising what was in front of him, but his boyish charm, dirty mouth and humorous wit won us over every damn time!

“Change your mind?” she teases. “Want to dance after all.”
“I want to fuck,”
I breathe against her ear, making her shiver. “You. In case there was any doubt. Now.”

There were some things we felt unnecessary to provide the ‘ahaaa’ moments and we found we didn’t learn enough about Jenny to begin with to connect with, and solidify hers and Stanton’s relationship;  to understand Stanton’s reasoning and desperation where Jenny was concerned.

“I look at you and I see a thousand summer days. The best moments of my life.”

The banter between the characters was done with effortless, precision timing and don’t even get us started on those courtroom scenes!! They were as hot as the sex itself!!!! Oh and a special mention has to go to Nana. What a HOOT she was! We loved Overruled and we’re dying to see what await us in Brent and Jake’s books later this year. We’re already hooked on this series!

THE MISTAKE – OFF CAMPUS BOOK TWO by ELLE KENNEDY

He’s a player in more ways than one…
Now he’s going to need to up his game.

The Mistake

SYNOPSIS

He’s a player in more ways than one…

College junior John Logan can get any girl he wants. For this hockey star, life is a parade of parties and hook-ups, but behind his killer grins and easygoing charm, he hides growing despair about the dead-end road he’ll be forced to walk after graduation. A sexy encounter with freshman Grace Ivers is just the distraction he needs, but when a thoughtless mistake pushes her away, Logan plans to spend his final year proving to her that he’s worth a second chance.

Now he’s going to need to up his game…

After a less than stellar freshman year, Grace is back at Briar University, older, wiser, and so over the arrogant hockey player she nearly handed her V-card to. She’s not a charity case, and she’s not the quiet butterfly she was when they first hooked up. If Logan expects her to roll over and beg like all his other puck bunnies, he can think again. He wants her back? He’ll have to work for it. This time around, she’ll be the one in the driver’s seat…and she plans on driving him wild.

Rating: ✯✯✯✯1/2

 We seriously love this Author; her writing is brilliant and addictive.  Also, her characters are lovable and have a realness to them that makes us feel everything they do without unnecessary drama and angst. Some Authors just have this flawless and effortless style of writing and Elle Kennedy is one of them.

We absolutely love this series and whilst discussing it we think the main reason is the attention to the hockey aspect of the theme. This series doesn’t just claim to be about hockey. It is all about the hockey. The camaraderie and banter between the lads is infectious and had us in stitches. We came over all unnecessary whenever they were all together taking the piss out of each other or on the ice. Loved that – it felt authentic as did the whole college experience, the emotional obstacles and the issues that emerge in friendships and romance.

‘He’s John fucking Logan, one of the most popular guys at this college. And I’m Grace fucking Ivers, one of the thousands of girls who are crushing on him.’

Logan….what can we say; we fell in love with this confused and sexy young man who had heart-breaking family burdens and an uncertain future over which he has no control. His story really broke our hearts but the level of responsibility and maturity he showed was amazing and made us love him even more.

“I treat him the way I’d want to be treated if I was ever in his position. With patience and support, even when he doesn’t deserve it.”

Logan needs someone to show him his worth and grab him off that self-destructive path he’s hiding from everyone and himself even.

Enter Grace. Ahhh what a fabulous heroine. Sweet, innocent, fun and kind of geeky. We loved her and despite feeling tired of that same old same old naïve and inexperienced girl we fell in love. Grace had back bone.

‘I ache for this guy. All the fucking time.’

The mistake has everything; friendships, love, loyalty, humour and passion. Whilst we didn’t love it as much as The Deal it was close. We highly recommend this series, especially if you’re after a hockey book that has the spirit of the game.

“Go away, G. I’m wooing.”

Pucked by Helena Hunting 3rd May

 

SYNOPSIS

With a famous NHL player for a step-brother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation many hockey stars come with. She’s smart enough to steer clear of those hot, well-built boys with unparalleled stamina. That is until she meets the legendary team captain—Alex Waters.

Violet isn’t interested in his pretty, beat-up face, or his rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s previous misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes more than just a hot body with a face to match.

In what can only be considered a complete lapse in judgment, Violet finds out just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. But what starts out as a one-night stand, quickly turns into something more. Post-night of orgasmic magic, Alex starts to call, and text, and e-mail and send extravagant—and quirky—gifts, making him difficult to ignore, and even more difficult not to like.

The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn’t want to be part of the game.

Our 5 Star Review here

SYNOPSIS

Reece Hatfield has just one rule when it comes to falling in love: don’t fucking do it. There’s no room in his life for another person. He can barely keep a handle on things as it is. A shadow of the man he used to be, Reece spends his days tattooing, the artist inside of him longing for the chance to do something different. 
Avery Moore is all dance, all the time. Ballet is all she’s ever known, and she’s damn good at it. Her body is her art, a living canvas that captivates Reece the first time he lays his eyes on her. 
He yearns to leave his mark on her body… in more ways than one. 
The tattooed degenerate with a shady past. The beautiful ballerina with a bright future. They live in different worlds, yet somehow, they fit. But just because they fit doesn’t mean they belong together. Cracks sometimes form. Two pieces don’t always make a whole. The course of love never did run smoothly. Things get messy. 
And Reece doesn’t do messy. 
Not anymore.

TB Says:  We ADORED this book! It had it all. Humour, emotion and heat. It pulled at our heartstrings and we never wanted it to end! Love, love, loved it! A Definite 5 Stars from us!

SYNOPSIS

My name is Milo Caro and I have a confession to make.

I’ve been in love with Colton Mathews since I was five. He should have known that sharing a cookie with a sugar obsessed little monster would do the trick–it sealed his fate. So really, the fact that he’s sporting a black eye, a limp, almost got ran over by a car, and was nearly responsible for another person’s death? Right. HIs fault. Not mine. 

I made a pact with myself–this weekend would be different. I’d come home for my brothers wedding, smile, and Colton would naturally melt into my arms, we’d get married have five kids, live in a house by the river, and get a dog named scratch (clearly I’ve thought this through).

What really happened? I punched my brother in the face, Colton kissed me and apologized, I lied about having a boyfriend, oh and everyone wants to meet the mystery man. 

They say laughter always comes before insanity–ha, ha. All I wanted was my brother’s best friend…instead I’m sitting in prison. 

Let this be a lesson to you all…life rarely happens the way you want it to. 

Damn cookie.

SYNOPSIS

Sam Morneau is Melissa Parker’s best friend. He’s also a member of The Kind of September, basically the hottest boy band on the planet. 


After two and a half years, Mel is all too familiar with the day-to-day occurrences that come with being a member of the band’s inner circle, including hectic schedules, passionate fans, and gossip-mongering celebrity girlfriends. 

Now, with the release of the group’s third album just weeks away, their lives have never been crazier and Mel is doing everything she can to keep up, all the while trying to cope with the ridiculous rumors that follow the band everywhere they go and pretending that she isn’t harboring a secret and hopeless crush on Sam. 

It’s weird enough being in love with your best friend. It’s even weirder when the rest of the world is in love with him, too.

Sometimes the best things in life come from the unexpected. So if you lower your expectations, then you’ll never be disappointed. Sound cheesy? It is, but it’s also true.

We all know how that goes, right? Best laid plans and all that. 
Life just threw me a couple curveballs, so I’ve set out to take things into my own hands. By throwing caution to the wind and getting out of my A-type personality bubble, I’m learning more about myself than I have in my twenty-seven years.

SYNOPSIS

“Don’t Look Back in Anger”
In one night, I lost five years of my life. Here’s what I know …
I was homeless. 
I’m a recovering drug addict.
My inked skin crawls from lustful eyes. 
I have a serious aversion to women. 
My gay partner is a home wrecker. 
I own a gun and I’m a damn good shot. 
I’m a makeup artist, but it’s an insult to my talent. 
I’ve never wanted to possess anything except my Ducati … until I met Darby. 
Now here’s what I know since that day in the ER when she pieced me back together … nothing—but a few random thoughts.
My new “friend” is distracting, clingy, and obsessed with acronyms, emojis, and phrases like “breakfast soul mates.” 
I didn’t want to like her, but she crawled under my skin and swallowed me whole. Now we’re best friends and she’s my new addiction. I’d drink her from a shot glass, snort her up my nose, or inject her into my veins if I could. What I won’t do … is ever tell her that. 
She doesn’t know me … I don’t know me. When those missing years come back, I think she will hate me … I think I will hate me. 
My parents named me Patrick Roth, and this is my story.

SYNOPSIS

When I was twenty-eight years old, I wrote my own winning lottery ticket. A simple idea thrust me onto the fast track to wealth, and into a world I had only ever dreamt about. I submerged myself in the unfamiliar, a life that seemed all too alluring … until it lost its appeal.
I made my fortune, built my castle, and then exiled myself within its comforts once reality set in.
Far too late, I discovered I was drowning in a sea of hungry sharks. Given the choice to sink or swim, I chose the latter … and it cost me everything.
Devin McIntyre, the most dangerous shark of them all, was the last nail in my naïve coffin. His beautiful smile and amazing cock tainted me in ways I could have never imagined. 
I craved him. I needed him. I loved him.
Miserable with the outcome of my prosperity, I set out to change what disgusted me most—the first decision being to rid myself of Devin. Little did I know that taking that first step would make me a slave to a man far more tempting … or that my addiction to Devin would threaten to ruin it all.

If you are not a fan of cursing, erotic and extremely explicit sex, cheating, immoral behavior, dysfunction or sexual scenarios that may make you feel uncomfortable this is not the series for you. FILTHY EROTIC ROMANCE

SYNOPSIS

~A lot can change in the space between devising a plan and carrying it out. That space is called the INTERIM.~

High school seniors Jeremy Stahl and Regan Walters aren’t friends. Not even close. He’s a picked-on, picked-apart loser outcast. She’s a cool kid running with the popular crowd. It’s unlikely they’d ever speak to one another. Too bad he’s madly in love with her. But what does it matter anyway? He’s got no time for love. Only revenge.
Meticulously detailed in the pages of his battered red notebook is his master plan: April 14, 9:30 A.M., two guns, eighty rounds of ammo, backup knives, eleven victims. He’s finally ready to answer every single taunt, jeer, and flying fist—unwarranted abuse that’s spanned six years of his lonely life. He’s justified. He’s ready. But he never readied himself for her.
Regan finds his journal. She reads it, and when he discovers her intrusion, he has to switch tactics. She’s a liability now.
Better fix that.
Interim is a New Adult Standalone. It contains explicit language and disturbing images of violence, including gun violence. If school shootings are an especially sensitive subject for you, I encourage you to refrain from reading this book. - S. Walden
 

TB Says: This book won’t be one for the feint hearted but it’s one we certainly can’t wait to check out. The synopsis is so intriguing!

Her mind is her worst enemy, and simply waking up in the morning is risky. For a kid like her, staying in bed is easier, especially when the day has come to start school in a new town with new kids who don’t understand that the clouds are not the only reason everything is so gloomy.

Dillon Decker is a typical boy from a typical small town who radiates light and happiness. Under the hovering glare from her father, Dillon leads Penelope around on his bicycle’s handlebars, hoping he is the cure to her madness.

But when friend turns to lover, and lover turns to caretaker, how much can either of them tolerate before they’re swallowed whole?

A story about moving trucks and rollerblades, candy for smiles, and notes across lawns.

First loves and the struggle to keep it sane.

The true love way. 

TB Says:  We’ve been wanting to read more from Mary Elizabeth and this book sounds delightful. Another one we had to 1click!

SYNOPSIS

I had always been the invisible art student in high school. 
Passed by. Glossed over. Unnoticed. 
Now I was Aria Watson… that girl.

After one bad decision, and being labeled a slut, I was no longer unseen. I was the whore. The ignoramus. The tramp.
I would never be invisible again.

Particularly to Levi Myers. He was the odd boy with the beautiful soul who accepted and understood the broken girl inside me.

Falling in love wasn’t the plan. But how could I resist his promises of hope? Of forgiveness? Of a future I had stopped dreaming of?
We were shattered. We were scarred. We were something strange and beautiful.

We were two lost souls holding on to the only thing that could keep us together.

Each other. 

TB Says: We’ve had some fabulous feedback about YA Story. We’re told we will fall in love with the beautiful writing and the moving story will grip our hearts. 1Click!

SYNOPSIS

I’m failing. 
My younger brother is getting worse, and my job – my duty – is to help him at all costs. We’ve tried everything modern medicine has to offer and nothing works. 
Nothing. 
Deciding to turn to unconventional treatments, we end up at Fire-on-the-Mountain, a holistic resort deep in the Rockies. 
In our search for medical marijuana, I find beautiful, free-spirited Hudson Shavell – a girl who may not only hold the key to heal my brother, but to fix me as well. Even though I can’t afford distractions right now, she’s all I can think about. All that I want. 

It’s funny how everything can change with one little SPARK.

TB Says: This book sounds different and intriguing. We’ve had some good feedback and will be checking it out at some point.

COVER REVEAL – THE RECKONING (Hard to Resist #2) by S L SCOTT

This time last year we read a rock star book that swept us off our feet! The Resistance had us experiencing every emotion with Dalton; we understood his pain, his struggle and his desire for normalcy; his want of pure untainted love. Dalton and Holliday’s romance was a love that came in the form of a girl who believed in herself and demanded to be heard, respected and loved. A girl who saw past a façade, past the imperfect to see the -truth- the perfection and the love and we LOVED every minute of this wonderfully written story!

Now, our wish has been granted because Dalton and Holliday’s story continues…..

We’re thrilled to bring you the smokin’ hot

SYNOPSIS

Jack Dalton was charismatic.

 Johnny Outlaw was irresistible.

 Two sides of the same man, passionate about two things—music and Holliday Hughes. With her intoxicating mix of strength and vulnerability, confidence and sex appeal, he couldn’t get enough of her.

 Together, love was a storm of chaos and calm. When fame became a force to be reckoned with, could their love hold them together or would their notoriety tear them apart?

“This isn’t how our melody goes. This isn’t how we were supposed to play out.”

THE RESISTANCE – BOOK ONE

the resistance

SYNOPSIS

You don’t choose when.

You don’t choose where.

And you don’t get to choose who you fall in love with.

The minute he opened his sexy mouth, Holliday Hughes should have known Jack Dalton was trouble. His smooth pickup lines, broad shoulders, and ridiculously handsome face charmed her right out of her clothes. She gave into her desires, the instant attraction blinding her to the obvious.

One night. That was all it took for Holliday’s world to be flipped on its axis. Jack Dalton was cocky. Smug. Volatile. Demanding. He ignited something deep inside her like no other, but there was something more to this brooding bad boy. There was a dark side to him she couldn’t help but be drawn to.

Torn between what she knew about him and a mysterious side he tried to hide, could she walk away or was he simply too hard to resist?

“You see my flaws and my good side. You see who I am, not just what others want me to be.” – Dalton

About the Author 

s l scott

New York Times and USA Bestselling Author, S. L. Scott, was always interested in the arts. She grew up painting, writing poetry and short stories, and wiling her days away lost in a good book and the movies.

 With a degree in Journalism, she continued her love of the written word by reading American authors like Salinger and Fitzgerald. She was intrigued by their flawed characters living in picture perfect worlds, but could still debate that the worlds those characters lived in were actually the flawed ones. This dynamic of leaving the reader invested in the words, inspired Scott to start writing with emotion while interjecting an underlying passion into her own stories.

 Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She’s obsessed with epic romances and loves a good plot twist. She dreams of seeing one of her own books made into a movie one day as well as returning to Europe. Her favorite color is blue, but she likens it more toward the sky than the emotion. Her home is filled with the welcoming symbol of the pineapple and finds surfing a challenge though she likes to think she’s a pro.
