Title: Playing His Way

Author: Erika Wilde
Series: The Player Club #4
Release Date: March 13, 2018

As the new owner of The Players Club, Brent "Mac" MacMillan is all about dirty sex, wicked sin and carnal pleasure . . . served up his way. After being burned in the past, he's always been careful to choose experienced females who enjoy submitting to his dark desires, and are willing to play by his demanding rules without expecting any emotional attachments in return. 

Hiring beautiful interior designer Stephanie Randall to create fantasy bedrooms within his club is his first mistake. She's curious, flirtatious, and makes his blood run hotter than it ever has before. Innocent when it comes to all the debauchery his sinful world has to offer, she wants to take a walk on the wild side . . . with him. 

His second mistake? Saying yes. And his third? Falling for the one woman he knows he can never have.
Stephanie strolled toward Mac, a mischievous glimmer suddenly brightening her gorgeous blue eyes, putting him on alert. "I'd like to attend the Masquerade party at The Players Club on Saturday, to get a better feel for the club and what other fantasy elements might work for your members." 

He stiffened at her unexpected request. The temptation of having her in this domain—wanting her but refusing to touch her—wasn't something he wanted to endure. And watching her possibly hook up with someone else, like Rick? Complete fucking agony. 

He shook his head. "I don't think attending the Masquerade party is necessary. I'm sure you can come up with a few other ideas without being here when everything is in full swing, which is probably going to be more distracting, than helpful." 

"What if I want to be here?" the little vixen proposed, her voice holding a hint of a challenge. "You know, to mix a little business with pleasure?" 

His expression remained composed, his resolve, firm. "I'm going to have to say no." 

She tipped her head to the side, studying him much too astutely. "I can always get an invitation from Jillian, you know," she said as she came closer and closer. 

"No, you can't," he countered. "I put a freeze on any new invitations until I'm done going through the current membership." 

She laughed softly, huskily, the sound like a stroke along his cock. Much like her hand was suddenly stroking down the length of his tie before giving it a playful tug. "Do I make you nervous, Mac?" 

His hands curled into fists in his pockets, because it was taking extreme effort not to grasp her face in his palms and kiss that soft, plush, impudent mouth of hers—hot and hard and deep. "Do I look like a man who'd be intimidated by any woman?" he asked, his voice surprisingly steady. 

She thought about that for a brief moment before giving her hair a subtle toss and replying. "Intimidated, no." Then a sexy, knowing smile curved her lips. "Nervous, definitely, because if you weren't a little uneasy about whatever this thing is between us, you wouldn't have an issue with me coming to the Masquerade party and being at the club." 

"The last thing you make me feel is uneasy." Instead, her presence had lust pumping through him like a heady surge of adrenaline. She was certainly testing his control. 

Her free hand came back up and splayed on his chest, the heat of her touch searing him through his dress shirt. "If I don't make you nervous, then prove it," she cajoled. "Let me come to the party on Saturday. I promise not to be too shocked by what I see." 

His jaw clenched as she met his gaze and held it, so bold and brazen when she really had no idea what she was messing with, or what he was capable of. This woman was no shrinking violet, and she was the furthest thing from the kind of submissive, obedient female he preferred—and Jesus, Christ, his dick was hard as stone for her. This was a woman who liked having the advantage, who enjoyed a little power play, and fuck if that didn't make him want to pin her against the wall behind her and make it very clear who really had the upper hand between them. "So, what will it be, Mr. MacMillan?" she murmured huskily. "Inviting me to the club on Saturday, or are you going to chicken out?"
Oh, Stephanie and Brent... these two are a sexed-up hot mess of a couple, and I couldn't have enjoyed them any other way. They are both headstrong and stubborn, yet they bring out vulnerabilities in each other, and that's why they work so well together once Brent gives in. He was the holdout to Stephanie's seduction, but when this sexy alpha man gives in, he gives his all.

These two are an explosion personified. They take every advantage of Brent's sex club, coupled with their own inhibitions that won't be tamped down. To say they're off the charts sexy would be a gross understatement. Their palpable connection just burst off the pages, but the reasons for Brent's holdout continued to whisper doubts his his mind until they were too loud to ignore.

This book is intense and insanely sexy and I more than highly recommend it! It is a standalone in the Players Club series, but I would highly suggest reading the previous books prior to reading this book, or ever after to learn more about the other characters' stories. It was so much fun for me to see those characters again!

Happy Reading!

Title: Something So Unscripted
Author: Natasha Madison
Series: Something So #4
Release Date: April 2, 2018

Finding my teammate in bed with my wife made the decision I had been fighting with for years easier.

It’s time to move on. 

A fresh start and a new NHL team in a big city. Most importantly, it’s my son Jack’s best shot. 

It would be both of our best shots. 


After a bad childhood, I made sure I would succeed, so I lived for my job. 

The problem is I die a little with each patient I lose. It’s part of my career at Hudson Children’s Oncology Hospital, but it doesn’t make the sting of loss any easier. 

Seeking anything other than a life saved isn’t on my agenda until a NHL player walks into my hospital with his son. 

We’re officially off script the moment we meet. 

If this love is anything, it’s unscripted.

When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her…


Title: My Way Back To You
Author: Claire Contreras
Series: Second Chances Duet #2
Release Date: March 15, 2018
The anticipated conclusion in Claire Contreras' Second Chances Duet . . . 

Love isn't always about timing.

Sometimes you have to throw caution to the wind and roll with it. 
I admit I wasn't ready. 
I know you don't want to look at me, let alone talk to me, but please, let me explain.
Let me tell you all the ways my heart broke when you walked away.
Let me show you what our years apart have done to me. 

Give me a chance to find my way back to you . . .
THIS. BOOK. My Way Back to You left me speechless. Rowan and Tessa's story just about broke my heart in the first installment, but coming back to their story and time jumping (ingeniously, might I add) to where we eventually pick up, slowly mended every crushed part of me. I mended WITH Tessa and Rowan. There are three sides of every story, and this is the book that shows that sentiment so clearly. What Tessa experienced and went through during her and Rowan's story, is massively different than what he went through, and how they both perceived the other's journey as well. And somewhere in the middle of everything is the truth, the compromise, the understanding. Everything that Tessa and Rowan weren't brought up to give into, and weren't ready accept in the first book. It all comes crashing into them. Not around them. Into their very beings comes this reality that they can make their own future and destiny that they always believed was dictated for them.

This book will give you every ounce of heartwarming goodness, and intensifying emotions readers crave. My Way Back to You rounds of this duet in an absolutely sublime manner. A wonderfully created book, with characters you'll fall in love with!

Happy Reading!

Title: Then There Was You
Author: Claire Contreras
Series: Second Chances Duet #1
Release Date: March 1, 2018
Love and the right timing were two things I didn't believe in. 

Love is about walking to the edge of the cliff and taking the leap together.
Timing was never on our side.
My first mistake was hooking up with my best friend.
My second came years later, when we met again, and I fell for her. 
My third was letting her go, because I had to. Because a love like this wasn't built to withstand the winds coming in our direction.

Love and timing.
I didn't believe in either. 

Then there was you . . .

Title: What He Doesn't Know
Author: Kandi Steiner
Series: What He Doesn't Know Duet #1
Release Date: March 13, 2018
On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

The house was once magical, filled with love and joy and plans for the future.

Inside its walls are many things that belong to me — my books, the china from my mother on my wedding day, the beautiful cage once home to two birds, now empty, just like me.

And a man.

A man who also belongs to me.

A man I no longer wish to keep.

A man who, no doubt, has not slept, though the sun is rising. Because the house where he waits is where I laid my head to rest every night for eight years. Until last night.

No one who knows me would believe Charlie Pierce, the quiet, bookish girl who never made waves is pulling out of the driveway of a man who isn’t her husband.

But they don’t know me at all.

I don’t even know me.

Not anymore.

They say there are two sides to every story, and I suppose in most cases, that’s true. But the one I live inside of? It has three.

On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

But there is no longer a home.
