Author: Kendall Ryan

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: October 11th, 2016

blurb

My tempting, and very alpha friend Sterling Quinn is someone I consider off-limits.

It’s not just that we’re friends, he’s also cocky, confident, and British, which means he’s a walking aphrodisiac.

But lately he’s been giving me the look. You know the one. When he thinks I’m not paying attention, and his gaze lingers for too long.

And then we start working together, and that’s when the sexual tension between us gets so thick, I want to hack through it with a machete. I want to make all these deep feelings I’ve harbored for him disappear, because there’s no way this can end well.

The lines between business and pleasure become irrevocably blurred, and I’m stuck between a rock, and Sterling’s very, very hard place.

Rather than keep a level head about our growing attraction, Sterling wants to go all in, showing me just how explosive we can be together.

But I’ve been around long enough to know that this British bad boy is more than my heart can handle. I’m not about to be cast aside like yesterday’s underwear when he’s done having fun.

Sterling’s never been told no, and he’s not about to put his ego aside and play by my rules. But I never thought he’d fight so dirty.

excerpt

I twist the doorknob, and finding it unlocked, let myself inside.

Sterling’s place is compact, but modern and classy. It suits him. After a quick glance around the living space, I spot him on the balcony outside, just beyond the glass doors at the far end of the living room. He’s facing away from me, his hands gripping the railing, his head bowed.

My smile from moments ago is gone. Seeing him like this—looking distraught—brings the reality of our situation crashing back.

Sterling suddenly turns and we lock eyes. A thousand emotions are revealed in his eyes, but mostly there’s anger. There’s also a sadness in his gaze that I’ve never seen. It’s haunting.

I swallow a lump in my throat, wondering what’s going on.

“Sterling?” I ask, slowly approaching the balcony.

It’s beautiful—plush pillows and twinkling lights, and a chilled bottle of white wine all nestled together in a romantic picnic for two.

He lets out a heavy sigh and runs one hand through his hair.

“This is beautiful,” I say since he hasn’t spoken, hasn’t even moved from the spot where he’s rooted, and his stony silence is killing me. “Are you okay?”

“Just fine,” he says curtly, his gaze looking past me.

He doesn’t seem fine. He seems off. Why go through all the effort if he’s just going to act sullen and withdrawn?

And what could have possibly changed in the twenty-four hours since we last spoke on the phone? He seemed so excited—like he hadn’t a care in the world. Now it seems he doesn’t want me here.

“If this is a bad time, if tonight doesn’t work . . .” I trail off, my voice suddenly shaky.

“The meal’s already prepared.” He brushes past me, headed toward the kitchen.

Unsure what to do, I follow behind him.

He’s acting like an asshole, and I suddenly feel so stupid for getting all done up tonight. I’m not going to stand around and embarrass myself by begging for his attention.

“You know what? Never mind. This was a bad idea, anyway. I’ll see myself out.” I turn and head for the front door, anger and rejection dueling inside me.

It takes all of three seconds before Sterling’s long strides catch him up to me by the door. His grip around my wrist stops me. “Wait.”

I turn and face him. I’m halfway between wanting to flee and staying to hear his explanation.

He releases a heavy exhale. “I received a phone call just before you arrived.”

With him so near, the combination of his clean soap and his spicy cologne intoxicates me. Memories of our intimate dinner rush back. But apparently tonight is not meant to be a repeat. Waiting to see what he’ll say next, I inhale and hold my breath.

When he doesn’t continue, I ask, “Is everything okay?”

Release Date: September 26th, 2016

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

 

blurb

12 steps to finding Mr. Right, composed by dating coach extraordinaire Savannah Gamble:

1: Admit to being powerless over your attraction to the wrong type of guy. (Like Lincoln Wells, who broke your heart after an unforgettable one-night stand.)
2: Believe Mr. Right is out there.
3: Take inventory of past mistakes. (See step #1.)
4: Make a list of qualities you want in a man. (Avoid charming baseball players/reason you made these rules in the first place)
5: Take charge of your own life.
6: Learn to love yourself.
7: Sort the hookup guys from the relationship guys. (Avoid a painful brushoff after an amazing night together.)
8: Never, ever settle. (Even if the chemistry is off-the-charts.)
9: Don’t believe you can change a guy. (Once a commitment-phobe, always a commitment-phobe)
10: Communicate your needs.
11: Open your heart & love fully. (Still working on this one…)
12: Don’t ever, ever stray from the steps.

excerpt

“Savannah? Savannah Gamble?” a different, deeper voice said from behind me. Scooping up my coffee, I spun around.

And squeezed my cup so hard the lid popped off. Scalding liquid sloshed over my hand and onto the floor, barely missing my shoes. Hot, hot, hot.

    Linc grabbed napkins and started patting my fingers, at which point I became fairly certain he wasn’t, in fact, a mirage or figment of my imagination. I set my coffee cup and bag aside so I could help clean myself up.

Only I got caught up staring into familiar blue eyes instead. Hot.

    That was the problem with Lincoln Wells. Between the light brown hair he usually kept on the buzzed too short side and those striking blue eyes, he was the kind of hot that’d scrambled my brain for an entire year in college.

“Sorry,” he said, wadding the napkins into a ball and making a perfect toss into the nearby trash can. “Didn’t mean to startle you.”

One corner of his mouth curved up—oh the hours I’d spent daydreaming about that sexy crooked smile—and then he pulled me in for a hug. “I can’t believe it’s really you.”

On autopilot—or maybe force of habit—I hugged him back. Like in college, he was all lean muscle, although he’d filled out a bit, broader in the shoulders and chest. My heart skipped a few beats, and I told myself to stop those rising tendrils of attraction right in their tracks. No thinking about how solid or warm he was, or how long it’d been since I’d been this close to a guy in general, much less a good-looking one.

I pulled back and grabbed my coffee and muffin so I wouldn’t be tempted to reach for him again. “Wow, it’s been a long time. Are you in town for a visit or—”

“Ivy didn’t tell you? I moved back. Last weekend, actually.”

Admittedly she and I had been missing each other lately, playing phone tag due to crazy schedules, but news like this? It deserved a meet-up involving alcohol at the very least.

Which is probably why she’s been so persistent in trying to get me to go to Azure. But if he moved back to town last week… Ivy had probably put off telling me, afraid of how I’d react.

Linc ran his gaze down me, and the only reason I straightened, patted my bun, and wished I’d showered and worn something besides yoga pants was because I wanted him to see what he’d missed out on. Not because I wanted to impress him or anything. I didn’t want him to look at me as more than a friendly acquaintance. The cool girl he used to hang with in college.

Who he’d had drunken sex with one night.

 

review

This book had my attention since I first read the blurb- it’s hilarious! I knew the book wouldn’t disappoint, because Cindi Madsen always delivers. This book was fun, sweet and laugh out loud funny. While slightly predictable, it was the type of read that leaves a smile on your face the entire time.

Savannah Gamble is a dating couch who is down on her luck with love. After a bad break up, she comes up with a list of steps you should take in order to avoid unnecessary heartbreak and find Mr. Right. A list equally for her and her clients. Things are going to plan until she runs into Lincoln Wells, who is newly back in town. He is the cousin of her best friend, and the guy that broke her heart in college. Unfortunately for her, he looks just as good as she remembers.

While Savannah is determined to not get close to Lincoln again, he seems just as determined to be her friend again. Wanting to hang out, offering to help her with work, even flirting with her- Lincoln makes it very hard for her to ignore. The more time Savannah spends with him, the more she remembers the way he used to make her feel… which is strangely close to how he is currently making her feel. But he already hurt her once, and we know what the rules say about that…

I thought this was a cute concept and enjoyed this sorta second chance at love story. Savannah and Lincoln have undeniable chemistry right from the start. They slowly start to rebuild their friendship, but you can tell that each of them really want more. I also loved the secondary characters.

Cindi Madsen always writes with natural wit, charm and sass. Even with a plot that you know where it’s going, it’s fresh and fun. A light rom-com that will deliver all the feels.

Title: Falling Slowly

Series: Book 1 in the Falling Novella Series

Release Date: October 6, 2016

blurb

Plain. Scattered. Klutzy. Naïve.

These are just a few ways people describe pretty but ordinary Rosie Fisher, and she’s okay with that. With her dull, mundane—sometimes messy—life.
It suits her.

Or so she thought…

Laid-back. Playboy. Charming.

These are just a few ways people describe handsome and charismatic Drew Nallen; he thrives on attention—especially from women—but likes his orderly, controlled life.
It suits him just fine.

Rosie. Drew. One accidental encounter and these two opposites are sharing more than a new friendship. They strike a life-changing deal, and what happens next?

It surprises them both.

excerpt

A silence lingers between us. He studies me, his eyes never leaving my face.

“Are you sure? No strings. No commitment,” he states. The tone of his voice is telling me he wants to be firm in the stipulations of this arrangement I’m asking him to enter into with me.

Nodding, I repeat his words, “No strings. No commitments.”

Drew gives me a slight nod and abruptly stands, holding his hand out to me.

As I take it, he jerks me up and into his embrace. I want to look around to see if anyone is watching us, but I can’t take my eyes from his, and for one brief second, his gaze searches mine. Before I know what is happening, his lips are firmly against mine, coaxing my tight mouth to soften, and they do so without much effort. Drew Nallen is kissing me in the middle of the bar, and I’m kissing him back. I can feel his warmth. His control. I can feel my surrender, and it feels better than I could’ve imagined. Although intense, the kiss is short.

Drew pulls back, and when I open my eyes, he’s staring at me with a surprised haze clouding his regard, then, as usual, his dimple appears on one side, and my insides melt.

“I’m sorry, but I think the pleasure of this situation is going to be all mine,” I apologize.

His happy expression leaves his face. Shaking his head, Drew quietly scolds, “Lesson number one: never apologize or criticize yourself. It’s the first rule of being more confident.” Drew lifts one hand from my waist and places it lightly under my chin, shifting my gaze up to his. “Also, I fear your view on your capabilities is utterly skewed. I might be the one who will need to work harder on my pleasure skills.”

 

review

Romantic. Charming. Adorably awkward. Those are a few reasons why you will quickly fall for Falling Slowly. It’s laugh out loud funny, has a swoon worthy hero, and leaves you wanting more. Literally.

Rosie Fisher isn’t the first person you’d notice in a crowded room. But she’s okay with that. She has a job she loves, great family and friends, and a favorite coffee shop that fuels her addiction. Hey, we all need some liquid life from time to time, right? Then one day she happens to run into Drew Nallen- he’s charismatic, outgoing, and has a smile that can make the most sturdy knees wobbly.

An unexpected friendship blossoms between the two, and the more Rosie is around Drew, and the more she gets to know him, she suddenly finds herself wishing she could be a bit more like him. More confident, more magnetic. The type of girl that can get a guy and keep him. Then just like that, she finds herself with a brilliant idea. If only she can get Drew to agree.

Drew doesn’t do relationships anymore. Instead, he settles for flings. Nice and simple. No complications. And what Rosie is asking him to do, well, it’s differently considered complicated.

I have to get this out of the way- if you think you know exactly how this story is going to play out, think again. Shirl Rickman has a way of throwing in some twists and turns.

Okay, now that we have that out of the way, I love the relationship between Drew and Rosie. The friendship that slowly forms between the two of them feels genuine. There is no insta-love, it definitely starts off a slow burner. That said, there is some undeniable chemistry between the two, and some pretty steamy scenes.

I really like how much I was able to relate to Rosie. She’s quirky and fun. At times a little hard on herself. While I really like Drew, it was a tad easier to bond with Rosie since it is in her POV.

The writing is great, the flow perfect. There is a very lovable cast of secondary characters. It’s fresh, fun, and flirty. Well, awkwardly flirty. 😛  Since it’s a novella, it’s a fast read, but doesn’t feel rushed at all.

However, I do have a bone to pick with Shirl- while there is no huge cliffhanger, you do have to wait until the next book in the series to find out what happens with Drew and Rosie. That’s right- we don’t get all the answers in Falling Slowly.

I’ve been a fan of Shirl’s since I read her debut novel, and I have to say she never disappoints. I love how much heart and soul her books have. So wither you have read her books before or she is a new author to you- one click this baby!

blurb

Fate. Hate. Love. Lies.  Which four letter word will change their lives forever?

Sydney Paige was never so mortified to hear the words “wrong number” in her life. She meant to tell off the guy who broke her best friend’s heart, but unleashed her anger on a perfect stranger instead. And now her world is turned upside down by the captivating man who wants to keep her on the line.

Brian Savage is living a life he’s quickly come to hate—until Sydney’s wild rant has him hooked and hungry for more. Soon the sexy woman on the phone becomes the lover in his bed. But Brian has secrets, and the closer he lets Syd get, the harder it is to shield her from the devastating mistakes of his past . . .

 

divide

Emotional. Steamy. Hilarious. Bittersweet. Okay, those words might not only be four letters, but they are four words that describe Four Letter Word. I can honestly say when I started this book, I had an idea of where it might lead and what might happen. While I was mostly right, there was so much more to it that I never saw coming.

Sydney Paige is going through a rough time. I don’t want to give away too much, but things aren’t going too smoothly for her. So when her best friend’s love life takes a tumble, Sydney, wants nothing more than to tell off the guy that broke her friends heart. After convincing Tori to give her the jerk’s number, Sydney gives him a call to give him a piece of her mind.

Brian Savage has also hit a rough patch in his life. Then he receives a phone call, and even though it’s a wrong number, his life is never the same. The woman on the phone is beyond pissed, and the things coming out of her mouth would make a sailor blush, yet Brian couldn’t remember the last time he laughed so hard. Finding himself intrigued by this wild woman, he can’t get his mind off her, long after the phone call has ended.

When Brian reaches out and texts her, an unlikely friendship starts between the two of them. Talking only via texts and on phone calls, the two start to bond. Listening to each other, offering advice and even confiding in one another, feelings start to grow into more. But Sydney’s been hurt. And Brian has a few secrets that would only cause her more pain. But sometimes you can’t help what the heart wants.

One of my favorite things about this book was the way Brian and Sydney “meet”. Their first phone call had me laughing out loud. I love the progress of their friendship, eventually leading to a relationship- it didn’t feel rushed and felt completely natural. The chemistry between them was obvious from the start, even if they didn’t realize it themselves.

In addition to all the laughs and sexy scenes, there were several deep sub-plots going on. They tugged on the heart strings and made you sympathize with the characters, especially Brian. It added layers to the plot, which made it a great read. I love how even though this plot of “wrong number” has been done before, this felt fresh and original to me.

Brian and Sydney both had strong voices and were characters you couldn’t help but like. There was also a great cast of secondary characters- I’m looking forward to hearing more of their stories. Since this is the first in the series, it looks like that is going to happen. I partially loved Brian’s sister and niece and nephew. They should a super soft side to Brian, and the interactions between Brian and the kids were super cute.

The only slightly down side was at times it felt like a long read. It didn’t ever bore me, but I just felt the length of it.

excerpt

I’d been in Dogwood a month and had been down to the ocean only once. Insane, right? I lived at the beach and I wasn’t experiencing it.

It hadn’t been a priority, and honestly, I didn’t have a lot of free time on my hands.

When I wasn’t picking up shifts at Whitecaps, I was talking on the phone to Brian, shut up in my room or doing it lying on the couch if Tori wasn’t home.

Now I wasn’t shut up in my room or lying on the couch, quilt-covered and heart-shattered. I was no longer talking on the phone to Brian and I wanted to see the ocean. I wanted to feel the sand beneath my feet and skim the waves with my hand.

I had tons of free time tonight while Tori got laid. Might as well make the most of it.

I took the stairs down a level and stepped out beneath the deck.

A couple was sitting on a hammock going at it like their boat was sinking, sloppy-suctioning kisses and need-filled moans spilling into the air.

There had to be a handful of empty rooms in that house. They couldn’t pick one and save me the surround sound?

Gross.

I followed the sand-covered path down the beach, taking small sips of my daiquiri as I went. Deep voices grew louder the closer I got to the water. I wasn’t paying much attention to them. I was looking ahead and forward to feeling the temperature of the ocean and maybe even finding a couple of pretty shells when the voices grew loud enough to hear clearly.

Very clearly.

That’s when it happened.

I stopped, feet frozen and ears alert when one of the voices not only grew loud enough to focus on but also registered in my mind as a voice I’d possibly heard before.

“Don’t know why I gotta keep repeating myself. It wasn’t like that,” the man said, sounding irritated. “She was sweet and good to talk to. Funny and cute about shit. Real cute. The fact that she was also a stunner didn’t surprise me. I heard it in her voice. But for the last fuckin’ time, and I mean this, I’m not saying it again, that’s not what got me. I was fucked before I even saw her picture.”

“You saying you were gone for a girl you never fucking met, Brian? Not possible,” the other guy replied.

I sucked in a breath.

Brian.

A phantom heartbeat fluttered in my chest.

No way…

With gentle steps, I moved closer to the voices, reached the end of the path, and peeked around an overgrown bush, spotting the two men standing on the beach.

I watched the one guy, taller than the other, who had his back to me, cross his arms over his chest and say to his friend, “Yeah, that’s what I’m saying. You talk to Sydney one fuckin’ time and you’ll know where I’m coming from. It was that fuckin’ good.”

I squeaked then. Not a gasp but a squeak I tried to conceal with a quick hand to my mouth, cup hitting the sand, but it was too late.

They both heard it.

Two pairs of eyes sliced in my direction. I stared back at the one pair coming from the one voice I knew, in my blood and my bones and the breath filling me, I knew that voice and the man it belonged to.

He stared back, eyes narrowing to focus better, focusing enough to make me out where I stood then going round and filling with surprise.

Pain lanced through me.

I wanted to run. To him or away, I didn’t know which urge was stronger, and it felt like I was being pulled in both directions by forces I couldn’t fight so I stood there, staring back as my hand uncovered my mouth and skimmed my throat.

“Brian?”

He was moving before I spoke, long legs closing in fast, and before I could blink, he was right in front of me, close enough to smell and feel if my eyes were closed but I definitely couldn’t test that theory right now.

I stared unconsciously into his face, tilting my head back to do so and taking in every inch of him.

Dark hair buzzed close to his scalp, thick eyebrows and deep green eyes, several days’ worth of stubble coating his jaw, which appeared sharp beneath it and full, perfect lips, parted as he breathed slow and heavily.

Beautiful.

I knew he was.

“Oh, my God,” I whispered. “It’s you.”

He blinked, breath shuddering.

“You recognize me?” he asked.

I bit my lip to suppress a moan because, God, that voice. It melted my insides when it sweetly assaulted my ears and turned my bones to jelly. It always had but now, seeing the man behind it and the mouth responsible for it, watching it shape and twist those words so perfectly, I was done.

Done.

Toast.

A goner.

I blinked when he stepped closer.

“Syd,” he pressed, eyes desperate as they searched mine.

“Holy shit. Are you the girl?”

The other man moved beside us and slapped his hand against Brian’s back, who was keeping his eyes focused on me.

I looked to the friend and recognized Exhibit A from Whitecaps, who I now knew went by Cole.

“Uh,” I answered.

I was in shock. Was he expecting me to speak?

Cole grinned. “Small world,” he chuckled, looking between us. “Small fucking world. I’ll leave you two alone since you probably have a lot to talk about.”

He gave me a wink then shuffled past me and disappeared down the path, doing just that. Leaving us alone.

I was alone…with Brian.

Oh, God.

Oh…God. Now what?

I looked up and met pleading greens, filled with desperation I could feel against my skin.

Questions and confusion swirled in my brain. My stomach was doing nothing but flips and excited little twists.

It was Brian. My body knew Brian and it was acting up impulsively, reacting to that smooth familiar voice and more, and when he reached out and held my face, thumb sweeping over my cheek as his lips whispered, “Wild,” soft and ache-filled, I stopped thinking and feeling altogether and sprang, launching myself at him and into his arms, which curled instantly around me, drawing me nearer and higher until our mouths met in a kiss that hurt and healed so deeply my soul cried out.

Beautiful.

Knew it would be.

Top 5 favorite four letter words by J. Daniels:

Cake– Thought I was going to start with the f-bomb, right? Nah. Who doesn’t love cake? It’s not just for birthdays, people! I created an entire series around a baker. My top favorites are red velvet and German chocolate. I love a good pound cake, too. And anything with bacon. I’m sure someone out there has created a cake with bacon on it. That would probably rank way up there with me.

NSFW– Does this count? I’m counting it. NSFW posts are my favorite. Why? Um, because they’re not suitable for work, meaning they are most likely dirty or completely inappropriate in some way or another.  And I live for inappropriateness.

Babe– This reminds me of Trouble. I love when he first calls Sydney ‘babe’, back at the beginning of their relationship when they only spoke on the phone. He just throws it out there, maybe not thinking anything of it, but she totally gets butterflies and that roller-coaster ride feeling you get in the pit of your stomach. I love this term of endearment. And I especially love it when Sydney uses it on Brian.

Wild– My crazy girl! Sydney was such a blast to write. Her dialogue killed me. Her attitude toward life and love was inspiring. She never kept a thought in her head. If she was thinking it, she shared it, and I loved that about her. She lived wild. No one else could pull off that phone call the way she did.

Love– We want it. We need it. Songs are written about it. Books are written about it. Oxygen, water, food, shelter, and sleep are basic survival needs of human beings. I like to think love is also something essential. Who doesn’t love love?

When her mother’s incessant matchmaking hits an all-time high, Georgie Archibald
does what any sensible woman would do: she flees the country.

Seeking refuge in the picturesque seaside village of Vernazza, Italy, Georgie’s only

looking man she’s ever seen.

Gianluca.

After going out of his way to rescue her, the former London financier turned
mysterious recluse makes it clear that despite acting as her white knight, he has no
