When Colorado Penn finds an unexpected package on his front step, his life will be changed forever.

Colorado Penn is living the dream. Starting goalie for the Arizona Raptors when in season, lead singer for a hard rock band when summer rolls around. He’s the quintessential free spirit who’s making sure he enjoys all the carnal blessings of his athleticism, and gritty singing voice. Now the Raptors are moving into their first playoff appearance in years, but the arrival of an unexpected package means that hockey may have to take a backseat to something way more important. Instead of the usual undergarments from adoring fans, he finds a newborn baby with a small note tucked under her carrier, naming him as the father. He refuses to give up his daughter and is determined to be the kind of father he’d dreamed of having. But to keep Madeline, he’ll need help, and he’ll need it fast. Enter handsome emergency manny, Joseph. They may be opposites, but Colorado starts to see that Joseph’s stable, calm influence makes his chaotic lifestyle choices seem less appealing. There’s something about the man that soothes not only his infant daughter but also the wild child inside Colorado.

Joseph is one year away from getting his degree in planetary science, working cover shifts at the planetarium, and pulling in income with short term manny gigs. Stars collide as he provides emergency childcare for the wild man of hockey, a man who moves so fast through life that he doesn’t know how to stop. Homeless, and caring for his niece, Emma, fate brings Joseph into Colorado and baby Madeline’s life. Madeline is a sweetheart, and Colorado is trying his hardest to make the best decision for his baby girl. He offers his home and an indecent salary, to keep Joseph in his life until summer’s end. Colorado brings mysticism and metal to Joseph’s sanctuary of science, but somehow Joseph needs to tame this shooting star and create a family. Nothing in the contract said Joseph had to fall in love to make that happen, but when it’s time for him to leave, will the void in his heart ever heal, or will it remain as cold as space itself?

REVIEW

Review by: Jennifer

(5 Stars)

This is the fifth story in the Arizona Raptors series, and I do suggest you read the previous stories, this way you are not wondering who all these crazy characters are and where they fit in. Now, since we first met Colorado in the first story we have seen all his crazy antics. On the morning of one of his legendary parties, he gets a surprise left on his door step. Now Colorado is scrambling to get his party life behind and make a stable life for the baby girl he never knew he had or even wanted. With this change comes of course the need for a nanny, in comes Joseph a manny that was hired to help out. Now all Colorado has to do is not mess this situation up, easy peasy; that is until Colorado realizes that he wants Joseph to be a part of this situation. Will Colorado be able to make the transition from party animal to stand-up father figure? Will he scare Joseph off?

 

Given just how chaotic Colorado has been, it didn't surprise me when his story was just as chaotic to match. This was the story I have been looking forward to the most, I wasn't sure how his story would swing (both ways maybe?) but this did not disappoint! I give this 5 stars.

Blog Tour & REVIEW ***The Sex Coach by Garrett Leigh***

 

 




Cover Design: Black Jazz Design

Length: 61,000 words approx.

The teacher and the student. The stable hand and the single dad. First times and friendship turn to love.

Toby
There’s nothing attractive about a twenty-four year old virgin, especially not one who blushes every time a hot dude looks his way. But I can’t help the heat that ripples through me every time I see Cole Maguire. And the clench of my heart when I realise how unhappy he is. He’s a city boy with a baby on his hip—we have nothing in common—but if he can teach me how to own my sexuality, perhaps I can teach him he’s worth loving.

Cole
I don’t like horses. But I love my daughter, and there’s nothing I won’t do for her, including leaving the city for life on a farm. I’m ready for that, but I’m not ready for blushing stable hands who make my heart race and my blood run hot. Toby has no idea how beautiful he is. I can teach him that, if he can handle the heat, but after one night with him…damn.

Maybe it’s me that has a lot to learn.

The Sex Coach is an MM summer romance with first times, a virgin stable hand, a single dad pilates teacher, and guaranteed happy ending.

REVIEW

Review by: Jennifer

(4 Stars)

Wow, talk about a hot read! Toby pulled me in from the very start, so shy and innocent. When Cole comes along and a spark strikes but the two end up just playing it cool. As the two dance around their attraction they learn more about each other, and one of those things is that Toby really is as innocent as he seems. Well Cole is just the person to teach him the things he wants/needs to know. The two end up with a friends with benefits type of thing, slowly that arrangement turns into something more.  In a story of laughs, sweetness, a tiny bit of drama (nothing major) we watch as Toby and Cole become more than just friends with benefits and it the process gives us all the feels. I do wish I had read the previous stories with the other characters .. just to get a leg up. I give this 4 stars.

Genre: Romance Suspense
Release Date: September 26, 2020
Cover Design: BookSmith Design


Can they stay alive long enough to explore the spark?

A steadfast believer in "never again," the only relationship parole officer Alayna Baron wants is with her job. When her roommate surprises her with a long weekend in the mountains, she reluctantly agrees—completely unaware it’s a singles matchmaking event. 

Widowed at a young age, Detective Evan Marshall thought he'd had his one chance at love. When his brothers send him away for the weekend, the thought of romance never crosses his mind. At least, not until he finds the intriguing Alayna stranded on the side of the road.

When an intense snowstorm closes the roads and bodies start piling up at the inn where they are staying, Evan and Alayna join forces in an attempt to keep the other guests safe. But even with a murderer hidden amongst them, Evan and Alayna find a spark neither are looking for. If only they can stay alive long enough to explore it.

Release Blitz & REVIEW ***Hollow by Laramie Briscoe***

 




Title: Hollow
Series: Heaven Hill Generations #4
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Genre: Small-Town MC Romance
Release Date: September 25, 2020


BLURB

Dalton Barnett

Heaven Hill is my home. They took me in when no one else would, introduced me to my family, and have always been here for me. But now I'm on the outside, not able to help the woman who has my heart.

I'm stuck, unsure of what to do, and struggling badly. 

If anyone should be able to make their wife happy, it's their husband right?


Amanda Barnett

Born a bastard, raised a Walker, and now a Barnett, I've never quite known who I am. Not until someone called me Mom.

In the aftermath of the biggest deception our club has ever faced, Dalton and I are trying to cope with the miscarriage of our child. The piece of light and hope we had at the end of the darkest times Heaven Hill has ever seen was snatched from us, and even though I'm trying to cope. It's not going well. 

Gone are my feelings of belonging.
Gone is my excitement to face another day.

In its place, I'm hollow.

Review
Review by: Jennifer

(4 Stars)

A little PSA for you: this is part of a series. This series rolls right into the next book, so there are things that have happened in the previous book that lead up to what is going on in this story. For this to make any impact at all and to not feel like you were dropped in the middle of chaos, you should read the previous stories. In the last story Mandy and Dalton lost their baby, and we started to see the breakdown of their relationship. After Mandy tried to end everything, she is now getting the help that she needs, while Dalton is now staying with Walker at the clubhouse, and working on being a man of many hats. The two have a long road ahead, do they have what it takes to come back together or is this truly the end of their relationship?

 

What an emotional roller coaster ride this story was! Watching Mandy and Dalton's relationship crumble the way it did was hard, but we do get a reward in watching them both work to make themselves whole again. I do believe this was the most emotional story in the series, it deals more with the feelings and not so much with the MC side of things. I give this 4 stars.
