Blaire has never
quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough
to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was
left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to
divorce him less than a year later?
Now Blaire is

isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy

gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop
on Jessie—for a price.
Now caught between
two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire
will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing
to risk it for.

“What’s with you and nakedness?”
“It’s how we’re born.” I smirked. “Easy.”
“I was also born with crooked teeth and no hair, so I should
revert back to that?”
“Actually,” I licked my lips, “You were born without teeth,
unless God made you extra special…” I pushed away from the counter. “Did he?”
She plastered her ass against the door and looked up at me.
“Did he what?”
“Make you extra special?”
“Why are we in the bathroom?”
“It think it was a power move on your part, lock me in here,
tell me how things are going to be, maybe add in a spanking and teach me my
“—why do I even talk to you?” Blaire wondered out
“Because I’m not boring. Like some football players…”
“You never played football.”
“Guilty. I was more of a rugby sort of guy, what prick wears
She eyed me skeptically, “No offense but don’t Rugby players
have a bit more…” She gulped and looked down past my waist, “Okay this is
coming out wrong but… thicker—“
The more she talked the redder she got like she couldn’t
bring her eyes up any higher without doing permanent damage to her
I grinned so hard my face hurt. “Thicker?”
“Um,” She pressed a hand to her forehead. “Legs, damn it,
“Totally thought you were going somewhere else with that,
spy girl.”
She made a face and crossed her arms. “Stop calling me that,
it makes me feel young, stupid, and inexperienced.”
“Like a virgin?” I said helpfully. “Touched for the very
first time?” She muttered
out a dear God what did I do in a past life to deserve him.
I took it as a compliment and pressed my hands against the
door on either side of her head. “I think you’re asking yourself the wrong
She frowned, “I didn’t say anything.”
“No, but you’re thinking it.” I whispered. “You’re wondering
what the hell you’re doing in here instead of out there.”
She swallowed and looked away. 
I tilted her face back towards mine, my finger and thumb
cradling her chin. “The past always looks better through I got fucked over
glasses.” I got a bit closer, so close I could taste the mint from her gum.
“You think you still want him. You’re wrong.”
She inhaled sharply. “You don’t know me.”
“I know you blush from here,” I tapped her chin then ran my
hand down the slim column of her neck until it pressed against her chest. “To
here, when you get embarrassed,” I leaned in and whispered in her ear. “Or
turned on.”
She blushed immediately. 
I kissed her neck and said. “Told you so.”
She shoved me away so fast I almost got whiplash. “This,”
She took another deep breath. “This is business.”
“This?” I pointed between her and me. “Is more than
business, but whatever helps you sleep at night spy girl… just be sure to let
me know when you want it to get more personal because I’d love to see every
inch of blush infused skin, and I’d love to eat my way—“
“—No.” Shed jammed her finger at me. “When I called you, you
literally had to kick a woman out of bed.”
“Two, actually.” I shrugged, “Not that it matters.”
“So? I like women.”
“I’m not them.”
“No,” I said seriously. “You’re not. If you were, this would
already be finished.”
“There is no… this, or us, beyond you helping me get info on
Jessie and Vanessa.”
“Sure.” I nodded. “Fine.”
“Why don’t I believe you?”
“Because I just lied.” I admitted with a grin, “But at least
you know where I stand.”
“Oh yeah? Where’s that?”
“In front of you.” I smirked. “Obviously.” I walked towards
her again and reached for the door knob, “Look I’m just a guy standing in front
of a girl asking her to—“
“—finish that sentence and I’m going to show you my kung fu

LIVE- CO-ED by Rachel Van Dyken


Co-Ed by Rachel Van Dyken
Publication Date: April 24th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Four guys.

Constant moaning.

And a revolving door across the college suite I somehow ended up in because my first name is Shawn.

They don’t discriminate. Girls. Guys. Grandmas. Plants (okay maybe not plants) all walks of life stroll in stressed to the brim, and leave so satisfied I’m wondering what sort of talents lie behind that door.

My roommate calls them the pleasure ponies.

But the rest of the college campus?

They just call them the new face of Wingmen Inc. A paid for relationship service that makes big promises.

Breakup? They’ll glue you back together again.

Depressed? They have the magic pill.

Lonely? Just spend a few minutes while they rub you down and you’ll forget all about it.

And broken hearts? Well, that’s their specialty. They’ll fix you

For a price…

I swore I wouldn’t get involved.

But apparently they like a challenge, and a girl who doesn’t put up with their BS is basically like waving a red flag in front of a bull.

They. All. Charged.

But one holds my attention above the rest.

Knox Turner looks like a Viking — and getting pillaged is starting to look more appealing by the day. Though he’s hiding something — all of them are. And the closer I get. The more I realize that some things are left better in the past.

You’ve read reverse harem books before — but you’ve never read one like this. It’s not what you think, or is it? Dive in and find out…

Knox, Leo, Finn, and Slater are waiting, and they aren’t patient men.

Welcome to the new face of Wingmen Inc — You’re welcome.

REVIEW – FRATERNIZE (Player’s Game #1) by Rachel Van Dyken


Emerson just made her dream come true as a professional cheerleader for her favorite pro football team. But even though the plus-size athlete is breaking down boundaries, she still has to contend with the massive rulebook. Carbs? Nope. Chocolate? Definitely not. Still, Emerson loves her curves, and she’ll rock the hell out of this job even if it kills her. Except for one mandate that is easier read than done…

No fraternizing with the players.

Problem one is Miller Quinton: Emerson’s first love, first sex, and the guy who still ignites her daydreams and R-rated fantasies. Thrown back together, Miller and Emerson feel the undeniable pull of passion again, even if the conflict that tore them apart seems insurmountable. Then there’s way-too-sexy Grant Sanchez. He has a serious reputation with the ladies, and when it comes to winning someone he wants, he doesn’t let anyone stand in his way.

Now Emerson is breaking every rule in the manual. But what she doesn’t know is that she’s part of a wicked little game—one that could steal both her dream and her heart.



*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FOUR STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

Body trembling, I tried to tell my heart to stop beating so loud. But it was too excited. Racing towards him. Toward someone who I’d always seen as the wrong guy. Who quite possibly could end up being the right one. Because no matter how damaged your heart may be, it never loses its ability to choose again, to try again, to want love even after loss.



FRATERNIZE is the story of Emerson Rodner, a young woman who time and again has suffered great loss, but she’s had the tenacity to move on with her life and go after her dreams. She’s always dreamed of being a cheerleader for the NFL team the Bellevue Bucks and finally, after being rejected the past few years, she has won a spot on the cheer squad. Emerson is a woman with curves and she’s dealt with judgment and criticism almost her entire life but she refused to starve herself to get down to a size zero to fit the stereotype of the ”perfect” cheerleader’s body. But she still battles with insecurity over her appearance.

Emerson’s life hasn’t been easy the past several years. Her best friend who promised to never leave her ended up taking her virginity and then breaking her heart when he moved away during their senior year of high school. Soon after Miller moved, he broke his promise to Em and within a few short months, they lost touch completely. While reeling from a broken heart, she suffered another devastating blow when her father was diagnosed with advanced alzheimers. They were forced to sell their home when the medical bills started piling up and now live in a tiny apartment in a low-income neighborhood. Finally making it on the cheerleading team for the Bellevue Bucks has been the first positive thing to happen to her in over eight years.

On her first day of practice, she runs into one of the hottest and biggest flirts on the football team, Grant Sanchez. He’s known for being the team’s biggest manwhore but for some reason, his cocky attitude and charm seems to put a smile on Em’s face. Her life is about to get extremely complicated when the boy who shattered her heart comes back into her life. Miller has just been traded to the Bellevue Bucks and he is completely stunned when he sees Em out on the field with Sanchez. Just like Em, he hasn’t forgotten about their past and he’s been holding on to feelings of hurt and betrayal all these years later. Em and Miller have very different views as to what caused their relationship to end.

Once the truth is revealed it also becomes apparent that old feelings still exist but now things are complicated because there’s another man who sees how special Em is and he’s made it clear that he intends to win her heart. Emerson has found herself in quite the predicament because Grant has managed to charm his way into her heart but she also hasn’t been able to let Miller go. Not only is she torn between two men but she’s putting her dream of being a Bellevue Bucks cheerleader in jeopardy if she is caught breaking the ”no fraternization” rule.

This story was very slow to take off for me. It took me a while to warm up to it. While I really liked the Heroine, I had a hard time liking Grant and Miller in the beginning. It wasn’t until I was more than halfway through the book that there was any character development with one of the Heroes, but once that happened I was falling for him and knew this was the guy who had to get the girl when all was said and done.

I loved how the three were able to build a friendship between them and that it was clear who the better man was, even to the guy who gets placed in the ”friend zone”. The epilogue will prove to be promising for that guy as we get a teaser as to who his future love interest will be. It looks like Rachel Van Dyken has the makings of another hit series on her hands with ”Player’s Game”!

LIVE – STEAL by Rachel Van Dyken


Steal, an all-new sexy standalone from #1 New York Times Bestseller Rachel Van Dyken is LIVE!!


Steal by Rachel Van Dyken
Release Date: July 3rd

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Steal, the follow-up standalone rockstar romance to the #1 NYT Bestseller Keep…

It’s easy to lose yourself in someone you love.

Easier to lose yourself in someone you hate…

I didn’t think it could get any worse than having to babysit a bunch of spoiled musicians on set — keeping them out of trouble is a cakewalk compared to seeing my ex every day.

Seaside, Oregon isn’t big enough for the both of us.

She hates me.

I loathe her.

The plan was simple — stay the hell away and make sure she gets to set on time.

What I didn’t expect was to be faced with our past in front of an audience — and be forced to face it again.

It’s torture.

The way she looks at me.

The way I try to look through her.

Words left unsaid.

The lingering aftermath still as powerful as ever.

I feed the chasm between us, for fear that she’ll make me feel again — and steal the last shred of heart I have left.

We have everything but each other.

It’s not enough.

Not when you’ve lost love.

And replaced it with the only thing left — hate.

“Bentley!” Brock barked and shook his head.

“What?” Bentley shrugged then smoothly walked over to Jane and pulled out a box of black high-heeled pumps in a size eight and a half. “Your foot, milady?”

Brock rolled his eyes. “Give it a rest, Bentley. She can put on her own damn shoes.”

Bentley completely ignored him. “I love a woman’s foot.” He grabbed Jane’s broken shoe and tossed it to the side while his hands danced along the arch of her foot. His fingertips danced along her skin. Seduction by foot rub? That was new.

“It’s sexy, the arch.” He leaned over her, his lips parting just enough to give her the impression he was thinking about kissing her. “The curve of a woman’s foot reminds me of her body…see? Sexy.” He slid the shoe on a very terrified looking Jane and stood. “Perfect fit.”

Jane’s mouth opened then closed as a rosy flush crept over her face. “Th-thank you.”

“I bought you my favorite brand.”

Her eyebrows arched. How did he know about Manolo Blahnik? “Oh.” And then she nodded and said loudly, “Ohhhh! That makes sense!”

Bentley’s eyes narrowed. “Me buying women’s shoes?”

“You wearing them,” she explained. “That’s great. I mean, good for you. I’m sorry I’m so awkward at things like this, but it’s good you’re…you know…” She bobbed her head and sputtered. “Out and…comfortable with it.”

“Out?” Bentley repeated. “I’m confused.”

“Of the closet,” she said slowly then saw the scowl on Bentley’s face. “Or maybe you just like to dress like a woman?” She straightened her shoulders and tried again. “In either case, congratulations on your choice to wear women’s clothing!”

Brock about died laughing as Bentley’s horrified expression went from stunned to genuine confusion.

“You heard her.” Brock held his laughter in check. “Congratulations, brother. I’ll take care of the press release: Bachelor Playboy Bentley Wellington and his private women’s shoe collection.”

Bentley let out a strangled laugh. “Yes, and while we’re at it why don’t we remind the press that the clock is ticking on that auction of yours? Hmm?”

“Auction?” Jane asked.

“Don’t.” Brock shook his head. “You don’t want to know.”

“But she probably already does.” Bentley pointed out. “Unless she doesn’t read the news…?”

They both stared at her, waiting for an answer.

“I, uh…” She ducked her head, blushing again. “I read books.”

“How pure.” Bentley smiled and sat down next to her. “And just so we’re clear.” He leaned in as though he was going to kiss her. “My bat only swings one way…and I can assure you, every time I get thrown a pitch, I hit it out of the park.”

Jane isn’t entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn’t she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes—or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire—maybe do exist.

Except Brock Wellington isn’t anyone’s dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk—even if it was just a façade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it’s karmic retribution that he’s tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can’t have. But while they can’t have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy.
