There is no rule in the Man Code as unbreakable as this: no matter how beautiful, smart, clever, and witty she is, do not—under any circumstances—fall in love with your best friend’s woman. Yeah. So there’s that. Look, it’s not like I didn’t know I screwed up by falling for her. Also, for the record, unrequited love sucks big time. And, I might have cut myself some slack by now, given everything that went down in the last few years, but Lulu just walked back into my life in a big way. ***

There are three things I've never been able to resist—my friends, my family, and chocolate. Leo Hennessy? He was nowhere on that list. He's been a true friend—a friend who walked through hell and back with me. Now, I'm stepping into my new future. I didn't expect it to include a riddle-filled, race-against-the-clock scavenger hunt across New York City. With Leo. Suddenly, I'm looking at this man with new eyes... But my life spun out because of a man once before, and I can’t risk my fresh start, no matter what the temptation. And Leo is most definitely a temptation of the sexiest, sweetest, and most dangerous variety. More irresistibly delicious than chocolate...

Corruption
(Blood Trails #4)
by Jennifer Blackstream

Blurb:

An exorcism went horribly, horribly wrong.

Did the ritual fail?

Or was it sabotaged...

Shade is a witch, not an exorcist. But when two priests are killed during an exorcism, the surviving witness begs Shade to find out who-or what-is responsible.

And what good is a private investigator who's afraid of the tough cases?

Danger mounts as Shade plunges into a world of hedonism to wade through the muddy waters of good vs evil. If she's going to survive against the army of enemies piling up, she's going to need help. But who can she trust when the demon who survived the exorcism creates chaos among allies and suspects alike?

After all, with the proper temptation, anyone can be corrupted...

Someone Like Youby Alexandra Silva

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date:January 31st

Blurb:


Dorian Anson is my friend. She's the only person who's ever questioned my smiles. My jokes. The one liners that have our friends shaking their heads at me.
I've lived my life on those smiles. They never failed me, until her.

I wasn't counting on her when I designed my front. I never imagined the possibility of someone like her coming into my life.

The wild hair, the kind smile and those eyes that see everything.

She was the girl with the beautiful soul, pretty face and whole heart. But hearts aren't made to stay whole.

I watched hers break. I watched her tears fall. I watched as her world tilted on its axis and shattered at her feet.

This girl.

She sees me, all parts of me—the truths I try to hide, the secrets I bury. What's mine and what's not.

She sees it all, and I can only hope the truth isn't too much. That she won't walk away.

That she won't leave me...alone.

We both have a past. We have ghosts. We have fears.

I'm hoping that somehow in the end, we'll have each other too.

I've never needed anyone before her, and I know I'll never want anyone else after her.

There is no one like her.

My pretty girl.

Dorian.

Release Day Blitz: Notes of the Heart by Charli B. Rose



Notes of the Heart
(Lyrical Odyssey #2)
by Charli B. Rose



Their hearts were in harmony… until the music faded away.
Izzy ~
Since childhood, our relationship grew from a single note to a full symphony. Two years ago, when I needed him most, he went radio silent. Starting over and rearranging the lyrics with someone new just hasn’t been the same. Beckett has my trust and friendship, but not what he wants the most: my heart. I have a second chance at love, if only my heart can change its tune. But before it can, that old song resurfaces…

Dawson ~
Falling in love with my best friend was wonderful. Until I lost her as I chased my dreams. My dreams have become my reality, and I have it all, except the one thing I want: Izzy. Every song I perform is a reminder of what she inspired. Without her, the music that used to flow freely has died. If I can convince her to be my song, my heaven, my everything once more, then maybe I won’t feel so lost. But her heart is singing a new tune, and I may be too late.

Can Dawson make Izzy see the classic anthem was better than a one hit wonder? 
NOTE: This is part TWO of Dawson and Izzy’s story. Part ONE of their story can be read in Beats of the Heart.

Cover Reveal: Hidden Powers By Tara Lain


HIDDEN POWERS 
(Superordinary Society Series, Bk 1)
By Tara Lain 


Blurb
Jazz Vanessen is weird—and not just because he’s a werewolf. For most of his life, he’s felt different from his alpha male brothers and friends. Since he’s adopted, he can’t even blame it on family.
Now eighteen, Jazz meets his idol, the social activist Lysandra Mason, and her breathtaking nephew, Dash Mercury. When Dash is around, even stranger things start to happen, including Jazz falling hopelessly in lust. Not only is Jazz having visions, making people disappear, and somehow turning invisible, but somebody’s following him and threatening to reveal his pack’s secrets to the world.

Together with Dash and Jazz’s equally amazing friends—Carla, BeBop, Khadija, and Fatima—they discover the danger is even more lethal than they thought, and Jazz’s weirdness may save all their lives.

Excerpt
 
Lysandra’s nephew escorted her to a seat at the governor’s table, then sat beside her. After he pushed her chair back in, he suddenly raised his head like a deer scenting the air and glanced around the crowd. It was kind of like when Jazz smelled danger or someone he knew, but this guy was no werewolf. He might look supernatural, but to Jazz’s nose, he came across as human.
Carla gave Jazz a rough elbow to the ribs. “Close your mouth, or better yet, stuff it with some of that outrageous pile of protein. His name’s Dashiell”—she said it like Dasheel—“as in dash-ing, but she calls him Dash. You’ll get to meet him.”
“I will? Why?” Weirdly, his heart slammed against his ribs.
“Because they’re sitting at our table, and so are you. Come on.” She grabbed his arm.
He pulled it back. Okay, too much. “Uh, I’m not so sure.”
“Why? You’re not shy.”
“She’s just my idol, you know. Sometimes idols are best seen from afar. You don’t notice the cracks.”
She smiled wryly. “You sure it’s not fear of getting a mighty erection in public over Mr. Dashing Pretty Puss?”
He lightly punched her shoulder. Of course, she was close to the truth.
“Dad says Lysandra Mason’s a love.” She hauled on his arm again.
“My food—”
“Bring it.”
He left it on the table and wiped his hands on his jeans.
She laughed.
He let himself be dragged over to where the governor and his wife were sitting with some members of his staff that Jazz mostly recognized from photos. And sure enough, the great lady herself was there, sitting beside—what had Carla called him?—Mr. Dashing Pretty Puss. The closer Jazz got, the prettier he looked. Her too. Strange. Usually humans looked more—human up close. You saw the freckles and blemishes. It made them real and charming. These two just stayed beautiful. Flawless skin, glowing hair, and luminous eyes. Lysandra’s nephew turned to look at Jazz, and Jazz saw that his eyes were some shining shade of pale green. Lysandra’s hair was brown mixed with blond, or vice versa, while the guy’s hair was actually very dark brown with deep shades of red, like fire. Jazz wanted to be invisible so he could sit down and stare at the two of them until his eyes bled.
His hands started to tingle and a quiver vibrated up his spine. Totally cray.
Carla grabbed his arm. “Hey. You okay? You got kind of pale.”
He forced a smile. “Just too much hero worship.”
She marched up to the table like the daughter of a governor—one who knew no fear—and stuck out her hand to Lysandra Mason. “Hi. I’m Carla Mendes, and I’m thrilled to meet you.”
“Delighted, Carla.” The smile Lysandra gave her was warm and genuine.
Carla reached back to Jazz. “This is my best friend, Jazz Vanessen. He’s one of your biggest fans.”
Lysandra turned her gaze to Jazz. Whoa. Where her eyes had appeared hazel at a distance, he now saw that they were gold—a pale yellow-gold like some kind of bizarre cat—but beautiful. Those eyes widened a little, probably at his adoring expression. “Hello, Jazz. How lovely to meet you.”
They weren’t words. They were music that filled his head like sweet smoke. He took her offered hand, almost scared he’d get a shock. Instead, her touch might have been more of a mist that slipped into his veins and made his blood dance like champagne.
Her eyes never left his as she shook his hand, then held it a few seconds longer. She finally blinked. “Carla and Jazz, may I present my nephew, Dashiell Mercury. We call him Dash.”
Jazz was scared to look. He might turn to stone. But when he shifted his glance, Dash was staring at him, his gaze focused.
Carla made a slight snorting sound. “Dash Mercury? Planning on giving FedEx some competition?”
Mrs. Mendes said, “Carla, enough of your smart mouth.”
Dash Mercury dragged his eyes from Jazz to look at Carla. And then he did it. He smiled. The seemingly immoveable, perfect face broke out into dimples and smile lines and crinkles.
Jazz’s mouth dropped open again, and he couldn’t get it closed.
“But I only bring the very best stuff to your door.” Dash laughed. If Jazz had expected a silky, even oily, voice, he was surprised to find Dash sounded pretty much like a regular guy. Friendly, casual, teenage. But Jazz’s wolf senses said that this dude was… something else. Human, yes, but unknown. Unexplored. Maybe dangerous.

Introduced in Heaven and Hell, listeners learned, after a heartbreaking journey through grief, Luci was ready to take another chance at love. But Hap was adhering to "the code" between brothers, unwilling to betray his dead friend Travis by falling for Travis's widow.

Can Maddox and Molly lead Diesel fully into their lives and give him more than everything?

"Rock Chick Renewal", a short story - Tod has been planning Rock Chick weddings for years. He's got a new one on his hands. And it's not what he expected.

Viviana's Review:

"No Clue": Okay so I haven't read/listened to the "At Peace" of The 'Burg series. However, "No Clue" was a perfect little sample that made me want more! So I ran and looked the book up and added it to my library to listen to it. It was a cute short story and for readers/fan of the series, I'm sure it gave them a nice glimpse of what the couple has being up to and for them to reconnect with them.


"The Stars Aligned": is one of the two novellas included in LOOSE ENDS. I really enjoyed it! This could totally also be read as a standalone. You got a little bit of hints of what must have happened to them within a book in the series, but the information was sprinkled here and there so you were not lost what so ever. Apparently, Hap and Luci were introduced in "Heaven and Hell" and are fan favorites! I can see why! This story had a little bit of everything and was just long enough to get everything you wanted from it! There was one character that now I'm hoping Kristen will give him his HEA!! Fingers crossed!!


"The Favor": really cute!! This was definitely an opportunity to get a glimpse at Deacon and Cassidy. Needless to say... all is going pretty good!!! I do enjoy it when we get to revisit a couple and "check in" on them so to speak.


"More Than Everything": The other novella included is about Diesel, Maddox, and Molly who were introduced in Kristen's "The Greatest Risk" of the Honey series. If you haven't read the "The Greatest Risk", no worries! Kristen did a great job in giving the readers enough information to know what's going on and this is truly a story about how Diesel needs to come to terms about certain things and accepting that he is worth it. I enjoyed it but did think that it was going on a little longer than necessary. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of sexy time (LOL) just thought that there was a bit too much internal struggle going on which became a bit repetitive so when the sexy time pops up, some felt a wee bit of a filler. I guess I wanted to see how things would end and of course the HEA. I will say that Kristen does a great job of writing the sexy time scenes. This is MM & MF & MFM and MMF and BDSM is included so while it may not be for everyone, anyone diving into the series for the first time will see how Kristen writes and will be wanting to read the HONEY SERIES!


"Rock Chick Renewal" was a really short story and cute and very sweet!!


"Fairy story"... this was a brand new story and I'm hoping an introduction to a new series Kristen is writing! It was cute and you were totally rooting for the fairy and her cause. Can't say more as it would be considered a spoiler and we wouldn't want that!!


NARRATORS REVIEW:
This was a great cast of narrators!! Will say that I wish that a male narrator was selected to do the "Rock Chick Renewal" as it was a male POV and while the narrator is awesome, I think it would have benefited from a male narrator because of the POV. I LOVED the female narrator for "The Stars Aligned" as her Italian accent was perfect! The narrators all did a great job in their performance which adds to making it an even better story.

Overall, this is a fan's dream come true!! When we as readers/listeners fall for characters, we want to see what has become of them after we get their HEA! Sometimes, a secondary character makes a bigger mark than the author originally intended! "Loose Ends" provides us with a glimpse to some of our favorites!



Rating: 4.Stars - I LOVED IT
