Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.

That’s why I’m quite a catch— good, hard, loaded, and wait for it…I’m ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with is precisely the one I need to stay far away from.

After that fantastic night with Mia Summers, I’m ready to give her many more. But there’s a hitch in my plans — she just hired my company. If there’s one thing I’m committed to, it’s running a squeaky clean adventure tour business. One of the iron-clad rules?

Don’t screw your customers.

I can follow my own guidelines. After all, it’s only a week-long trip with Mia and her employees over the trails and down the hills I guide them on. I can obey the rules—even if it’s hard in the woods.

I’m about to give myself a badge of honor when the storm of the century hits, sending everyone else running for cover, but us—my biggest temptation and me, alone for a long weekend. You don’t screw the client, especially when you’re already in love with her . . .

But what’s a guy to do when she’s so hard to resist?

Review Blitz - SIN by Emma Hart


A Vegas Nights Novel Book 1

By Emma Hart


Release Day – July 18

Damien Fox lived up to his name. Cunning, sly, and dangerous, fifty percent of Vegas’ strip clubs were his.
Whatever he wanted, money, attention, women, he got.
And now he wanted to buy my bar, no matter the cost.
I wanted him to go to hell on a first-class ticket.
He played a dirty game, and I followed his rules. I let him think he would win.
Despite our differences, it was clear to see that we were no more than two broken hearts colliding in the darkness.
Closed off, sexy, and holding a pain that would crush a lesser man, he was the ultimate sin.
One I couldn’t deny myself, even though I knew better than to trust a fox...

(SIN is book one of the Vegas Nights series. Each book in this series is a standalone novel.)


I loved how Damien and Dahlia played off of each other. They had great chemistry and made you love them both individually and as a couple. Dahlia was feisty and stubborn and Damien was pure alpha male with a ton of business sense. I also liked how we learned about each character as the other learned about them. This helped to keep the story interesting.  I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series and would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a love story with some fun in it.

Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.
She likes to be busy—unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.

REVIEW ~ LEGALLY MINE by Nicole French

What's the point of falling in love if it only breaks your heart?

Skylar Crosby should be on top of the world. She's just graduated from the best law school in the country and is supposed to kick-start a successful career. But with her father still recovering from his gambling addiction, her absentee mother suddenly reappearing in her life, and the stresses of studying for the bar exam, Skylar is feeling more like she's holding the world up rather than standing on top of it. And then, of course, there's the matter of her utterly smashed heart. 

In just a few short months, brilliant attorney and all-around tycoon Brandon Sterling quickly became the sun to Skylar's universe only to twist it upside down and inside out with his secrets, leaving her with a decision to make that will change both of their lives forever. And although Brandon can't forget the girl who gave him back his heart, sudden changes in his own complicated life will make getting her back that much more difficult. Luckily, Brandon Sterling has never been one to walk away from a challenge. 

Even when the whole world seems united against them, it's possible that they are their own worst enemies. Legally Mine, the second book in the explosive Spitfire series, continues the saga of Skylar and Brandon as two stubborn, intelligent, damaged people trying to learn how to let themselves love and be loved return.


This is the second installment of this trilogy series and let me tell you… she gets you again. I mean, yes I know this is a trilogy but gosh darn it, Nicole loves to leave you hanging. Right when it was getting good. Just saying.

My heart broke for Skylar in this book. She is left without Brandon and is left to deal with her situation alone. While trying to move on without him, she has to make the biggest decision of her life. It’s like Nicole just wanted to crush you. I felt right with Skylar and damn did I want to just give her one big hug and tell her it would be okay. No one should have to go through life alone like that.

When she finally comes back to it, she puts her feelings and her happiness aside so that her family will be well taken care of. Skylar needs to make sure her Bubbe keeps the house and that her father gets better. It can’t happen if she says in New York. The past will not always be the past. It has a way to wiggle its way back in if you are not prepared. That’s what I have found out with this book. All around.

Brandon has had a hard time moving on from Skylar, but he needs to after all the radio silence. But when she makes an appearance back to town his mind goes back to fixing things. Back together, they are still combustible when together. It’s like no time has gone between them. I really do love them together. It’s like they bring out the best in one another. I saw a different side of Brandon. A softer side, one who wanted to try and change for Skylar. There was though a lot of push and pulling between Skylar and Brandon. Honestly, more than necessary. Some parts just had me wishing they got their act together so we can skip all this back and forth. And the fact that Brandon still had not taken care of his business, I felt as if he was just stringing her along. He needs to hurry that up.

Let’s talk about Skylar’s family coming back into the picture. I never liked her mom and had a bad feeling about her. I feel bad for her siblings though, to have to go through life with those parents. I wanted to go and bitch slap her mom and her husband. I was furious for Skylar. Why would anyone do that to their own flesh and blood!? But I’m hoping karma will come around quick. Here Skylar will learn who her true friends and who is only there to watch her fall.

Brandon’s life is about to change and if Skylar is involved his life will change completely as well. It doesn’t seem like the life Skylar has always envisioned for herself. But for Brandon, will she give up who she truly is?

Everyone seems to want Brandon and Skylar together again. That or they want something from them. Will they be able to beat the odds and let love win? Or will everyone prevail in this situation?

Her dad, when Brandon got involved I knew that would be the downfall of it all. But how could you do that to me with the ending!! I’m going to need the final book ASAP!! I truly hope he (her father) can figure his shit out and get better to finally be the father that Skylar needs. She needs to start being taken care of not always sacrificing herself for everyone. Every girl needs that.

Can we please have a Jane and Eric book, like soon? Their “hatred” for one another is soo cute. They need their story to be told.

There is just too much to this book, you have to read it for yourself in order to love it. One little thing will just create a domino effect and give the book away. 

This review was done by Jenn. I was given an advanced copy for my honest review. 

We stared at each other, bristling and irritated. Finally, eager to break the stare-off, I pushed off the wall with my feet to float on my back. I stretched toward the opposite end of the pool, arching in a way that made my breasts peak toward the ceiling, then flipped backward until I popped up again through the water. When I surfaced, Brandon was watching intently, a different kind of fire in his ice-blue eyes. Did he wanted to strangle me or eat me alive? It was hard to tell the difference.
"I know what you're doing," he said finally, low and almost menacing.
I continued to tread water, then flipped over again, slowing my movements even more. "Do you?"
"Get out of there, will you?" Brandon reached a hand out, beckoning me to swim back.
I just stared at it. "No," I said. "I'm not done with my workout."
I rolled backward through the water once more, then resurfaced to find Brandon standing up. His face looked like murder, but the tenting in his pants spoke of something else.
"Get out of the pool, Red," Brandon said, barely concealing his frustration.
"Stop telling me what to do."
"I'm not joking. Get out."
"Get out of the fuckin' pool, Skylar!" Brandon shouted, his South Boston accent out in full force. He thrust both hands into his hair and yanked. "Fuck!"
I just kept treading while sounds of the water lapping on the sides of the pool filled the space between us. Brandon stared at me, then dropped his hands.
"Fine," he said as he started to remove his vest. "Have it your way." He unbuttoned his shirt and tossed them both on the lounge chair next to him.
"What are you doing?" I asked as he started pulling off his shoes and socks, which then joined the clothes.
"What do you think?" Brandon snapped as he unbuckled his belt. "You won't come out, so I'm coming in."
"In your underwear?"
He pulled off his pants and threw them on top of his other things. He now stood in front of me in nothing but his boxer briefs, his perfectly sculpted body, including his sizable erection, on display for anyone to see. The reflected light glimmered over the broad lines of his shoulders and pectorals, the v-shaped muscles of his abdomen, the lean, long shapes of his thighs. Now he was the one who looked like a Greek statue.
I bit my lip, willing the heat building in my core to calm down. 
"Well, it's either that or nothing at all," Brandon said just before he jumped in with a splash.
Tall as he was, he didn't need to tread water, but he still dipped underwater and surfaced like some kind of mythical sea god. The water glistened on his muscles as he tracked me like a shark.
My legs somehow kept circling, but the rest of me stilled. I wasn't in the mood to be pounced on, as Brandon sometimes did. He often used sex as a Band-Aid, and right now, I wasn't okay with that, even if the water droplets sliding over his pecs were getting me pretty hot and bothered.
My instincts took over: fight or flight. I dove underneath the blue lane barrier and swam to the corner of the pool. Before I could climb up the ladder, though, I found myself caged by two tanned, rock-hard arms.
"I don't think so."
Brandon's voice vibrated in my ear, and I froze. I turned slowly, and he released his grip on the ladder, backing off just enough so that I could turn around. His gaze bored into me like a drill. But it wasn't just the intensity in his eyes that pinned me to the ledge; it was the hurt there as well.
"You can't keep doing this," Brandon said in a low, taut voice.
Around me, his body was pulled tight as a drum. The evening had taken a toll on him too.
"You can't keep running away every time I do something you don't like."
"I don't––"
"You do," he cut me off gently.
We were close enough that he didn't need to raise his voice. Around me, his muscles flexed even more.
"Every time. My office. The airport. After you found out about Miranda, about Messina's payoff. That night at the club. And now tonight. If I railroad, Red, you run."
I heard my grandmother's words to me in Brooklyn after I had escaped there in April. She had compared me to my mother, who couldn't even stand beside me for the length of a party. And now I was becoming just like her.
"My life is complicated," Brandon continued. "I know that. I know it's not easy for you. But I am yours, Skylar, body and soul. But I can't be yours if you're not mine too."

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar. He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out. When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass. You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend--smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married. He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done. Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant. Only it turned out, the man I'd just told off wasn't the right guy. Oops. My mistake. Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology. I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right? That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning. Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant. I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking. Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West. This was going to be interesting… ADD TO GOODREADS

My, my Professor West! I should not be surprised when this book got into my hands. Vi Keeland always finds a way to make her characters come to life and make you love them. Vi has not disappointed with this book. 

When Rachel and Caine first met, it was in a bar and she told him off. From that first meeting, you can feel the sexual tension sizzling between the two of them. Like off the charts hot. Thinking that was their one and only encounter, they are proven wrong when Rachel ends up being Caine's TA. 

I loved who Rachel was from the beginning. Her personality just drew me to her. She sticks up for her friends, is very independent, does not want help from anyone and is a very strong person. She cares for those close to her but still keeps them at arms length. Her strength is what amazes me so much. Rachel keeps the past hidden so far deep, that when the past finally decides to make an appearance it could be a breaking point for her. Her story just crushes you. But yet, how she overcame her past is what made me love her. 

Professor West is that one professor I wished I had while attending school. Why can't they make them all like him? He loves his job and his music. It is definitely shown when he is teaching. Caine may seem so put together, but that is definitely far from it. He does a great job with him image that's for sure. His family background is one that I would have not pegged him for. He has a past that he keeps so tight lipped. He is still suffering from the repercussions of it. Hearing Caine's past makes my heart break. He should not have that much guilt on his shoulders. But what draws me to him is how he has pushed forward and made himself as successful as he can be. 

Caine has been trying to curb his attraction to Rachel. It would definitely put his career off since she is his TA and all. They try so hard to avoid it. It's even comical watching sometimes. It's like their doing a dance of some sort. But you really can't deny what is truly meant to be. And when it finally happens. Prepare yourself for Professor West. 

But when that turning point arrives and the shoe drops. Oh my word! I literally gasped out loud when it happened. And I bet you will too. I did not peg it to ever go down like that but it sure did. It really did though bring this story full circle. 

It really is how they make it work when both their pasts come back front and center. Can Caine and Rachel get past it? Or will the past always be in the way? 

I hope you will take a chance at this book and love it too. I mean it's Vi Keeland so how can you not.
