Take Me to Church by Janice Whiteaker is now live!
One year ago I walked away from everything I knew and all the lies I'd been told.
For the first time in my life I was free from the constraints put on me by power hungry men who twist faith and devotion into fear and control.
All to feed their own egos.
Now my sister's ready to leave too, but the only one who can help me save her is a ghost from my past. One who's haunted my thoughts more than I'd like to admit.
Christian was my older brother's best friend. He saved me countless times when I was a little girl, protecting me from the wrath of my unpredictable father when everyone else in the house turned a blind eye.
Except Christian's no longer the lanky teenage boy from my memories.
He's older. Darker. Deadlier.
He's changed in ways I'm only beginning to understand. Ways that make me desperate for his touch. Ways that make me worry he still sees me as that little girl instead of the grown woman I've become.
But one thing hasn't changed.
Christian is still willing to do whatever it takes to keep me safe...
and he's more than ready to prove it.

Mr. Big Shot by R.S. Grey is now live!
Biting banter, fake relationships, and illicit workplace rendezvous--anything goes in this romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author R.S. Grey.
While most little girls grow up idolizing Ariel or Belle, I was banging a plastic gavel and pretending to be Judge Judy. I spent my summers divorcing Barbie and Ken and splitting their Dreamhouse assets. Now, my goal to become the very best acquisitions lawyer at the top firm in Chicago is within reach.
I'm one month into my big-girl job at Elwood Hoyt, venti Starbucks in hand, ready to take on the day. The sleek elevator doors are about to close...then he steps in after me. Hudson Rhodes—the one senior partner I was told to avoid at all costs—just so happens to be the heartless villain I'm assigned to work under.
Ever since he found out who I am—the Scarlett Elwood—we've been enemies, the sort who constantly bicker and bark, take jabs in the boardroom, and occasionally pop up shirtless in each other's steamy dreams. Y'know, that kind. He has to know I could run to my dad at any time and demand his firing, but his confident smirk says he knows I'd never give him the satisfaction.
The elevator chimes as we reach our floor, and I feel his broad shoulders pull even with mine. Fury mixes with fear, hatred with lust. He turns to briefly hold my gaze before confidently stepping out in front. His message is clear:
If I want to reach my goal, I'm going to have to go through him first.

Audiobook Review for Wild Island Love by Melissa Foster
By: Melissa Foster
Length: 10 hrs and 34 mins
Leni Steele might be looking for love, but she’s definitely not looking to be someone’s fake date. Especially not one of the most infuriatingly handsome and annoyingly cocky actors on the planet, Duncan Raz. But when the owner of the PR firm for which she works forces her to walk the red carpet on his arm, she has no choice. Neither wants to be there, much less with each other. They’re like oil and water, and he gets on her last nerve. But after a few tequila shots, that’s not all he gets on. What was supposed to be one date turns into a media frenzy they can’t afford to ignore, and Leni has no other option than to continue the ruse. All the fake kisses furtive glances, and seductive touches eventually start to feel very real. But Raz didn’t earn his A-list-actor status for nothing. Is he just doing what he does best? Playing a role? Or is Leni the leading lady in Raz’s real-life love story?
Audiobook Review: Wild Island Love has two of the best narrators I have ever heard. The dual narration of Jacob Morgan and Savannah Peachwood makes Wild Island Love a must-listen to audiobook. The characters of Leni Steele and Duncan Raz are brought to life with the narrator’s voices. I felt like I was on Silver Island with them, living beside them, watching their relationship grow, and feeling the heat between them.
eBook Review: I have missed Silver Island and all my friends from there. I felt like I was coming home. Leni and Duncan are so freaking fun! They are sexy, I mean there was steam coming off the page as I read some of their scenes. Yet, sexy scenes or not, there was no doubt that they belonged together.
I had some scares while reading that the story would not go the way I wanted it to, but the story went exactly how it was supposed to go. The characters followed their hearts although sometimes it took them a little bit to figure out what their heart was telling them and ended up having the perfect relationship for them.
There were so many characters that I wanted to catch up with and Melissa Foster included them all. I loved that as each character came back into the story, it was told on how they were related to the other characters. Everyone is connected in the Love in Bloom series, but each book is its own complete story.
Go get this book. I could not put it down.
Wild Island Love
2 Roommates. 2 Fairy tale retellings, including Beauty and the Beast and Red Riding Hood. = One epic new series!
Each heroine must choose her own path of love, loss, and betrayal as they fight through angels, werewolves, vampires, fae, witches, and more.
Will they get their happily ever afters without ending their friendship or embrace their destinies and destroy each other and the world?
The Wake-Up Call by Beth O'Leary
Publication September 26, 2023
It's the busiest season of the year, and Forest Manor Hotel is quite literally falling apart. So when Izzy and Lucas are given the same shift on the hotel's front desk, they have no choice but to put their differences aside and see it through.
The hotel won't stay afloat beyond Christmas without some sort of miracle. But when Izzy returns a guest's lost wedding ring, the reward convinces management that this might be the way to fix everything. With four rings still sitting in the lost & found, the race is on for Izzy and Lucas to save their beloved hotel--and their jobs.
As their bitter rivalry turns into something much more complicated, Izzy and Lucas begin to wonder if there's more at stake here than the hotel's future. Can the two of them make it through the season with their hearts intact?
My Thoughts: Talk about mixed signals…Izzy and Lucas have that and so much more. The dynamic between these two had me laughing and loving the sizzle between them. Even through all the bickering, there was no doubt that there were feelings between them. But could they figure out what feelings they have before the hotel closed?
The Wake-Up Call is fun rom-com that had me wanting to read just a little more or a lot more. I could not wait to get home from work and have “me time” to read. The story moved quickly with good detail to the surroundings and characters. I love the Forest Manor Hotel and the history that comes with the old place. The people who stay in that hotel have become friends of the hotel. The employees who worked in the hotel were invested in making it a successful business again.
I recommend The Wake-Up Call to anyone who is looking for a fun rom-com that is easy to read.
Thank you Berkley for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
