🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

BLURB:

He’s a warrior, yes, but Trip has always considered himself more of a tactician. He can see what’s coming and plan for it. Until his kif’s ship is suddenly taken by space pirates, and he discovers his mate is one of the most confounding creatures he has ever met.

Luk’s people live by one rule: might is right. They see what they want, and take it. When Luk’s ship comes across an alien craft, nothing is standing in their way, except a ragtag pack of warrior aliens. One of which Luk feels indescribably drawn to. But it isn’t as easy as wanting and taking. Luk has always worked hard to be as ruthless as his brother, the captain. But Trip makes him want to be gentle.

As long as he stood with his brother, he was invincible. But now he has a mate, and when he discover’s he’s pregnant, the vicious men of his ship scent weakness, something that the captain cannot accept.

To protect their child, Luk will have to rely on Trip’s brains and the strength of his kif. It undermines everything Luk has ever stood for… and if Trip can’t stay one step ahead of the pirates, they’re all doomed.

Trip is the third book in The Kif Warriors, an alien mpreg series. This series is the first co-write between Crista and Kiki. They’ve joined forces to bring you all the humor, magic, steam and action that you enjoy!

*************************************************************************************

My Review:

STARS: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

this is the 3rd book in The Kif Warriors series. If you are looking for a twist sci fi and magic then you will love this book and series. You will fall in love with the members of the Kif. Trip has a way to get things done or solve them. That changes when their ship becomes dead in space and the Kif are taken by pirates. I love the twist in the story when we find out about Trip fated mate. They balance each other out. would recommend that you read the book in order so that you have understand of the Kif members. Highly recommend this book today if you like space pirates.

BRVL REVIEW of Onyx (Jewels Cafe #10) by Melissa Adams

======= ❤️ ❤️Review ❤️ ❤️=======

Title: Onyx

Author: Melissa Adams

Series: Jewel Cafe

GENRE: Holiday Romance


Print Length: 128 pages

Publication Date: December 16, 2019

KindleUnlimited: YES

Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07YFWH4PW/

🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

BLURB:

Onyx makes a wish in the Silver Springs magic spring: she wants more love in her life.
Stone Hill High this year will offer a modern rendition of a timeless classic: A Christmas Carol.
She is cast for the main role of a female Scrooge.
Title of the play: Her Bah Humbug, which is very fitting since our Onyx despises Christmas with all her heart.
What happens when three sexy high school senio… ehm ghosts will try to show her the error of her ways?
Will the magic pumpkin spice latte drank by the three hotties set to co-star in the high school Christmas play make them fall for her?
Is love caused by the wish at the magic spring?
Did Julian (the Jewels Cafe owner) lend a helping hand?
It certainly seems suspicious that the three hot guys are suddenly all over Onyx when they’ve never really noticed her before.
Come to the play on Christmas Eve and see what happens.

Onyx is a contemporary reverse harem story. It’s part of the Jewels Cafe shared universe.

Scroll up to read this steamy, fun romance today.

*************************************************************************************

My Review:

STARS: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was a wonderful twist to a old Christmas story. Who wouldn’t be grumpy during the holidays if all bad things happen to you. the twist is that Dylan, Allan and Robyn where not going to let Onyx be a humbug again. this was wonderful read with characters that you will make you feel for them. recommend this story

Cover Reveal

Bad Boyfriend by Elise Faber

The Billionaire’s Club Series is back!
Bad Boyfriend by Elise Faber releases on January 19th!

Amazon — https://amzn.to/2PEFwxM Universal — getbook.at/BadBoyfriend Apple — https://apple.co/36S9PqC Nook — http://bit.ly/35HJcVl Kobo — http://bit.ly/2PGx2Gl Google — http://bit.ly/2ScElaLKelsey Scott has never wanted anything more serious than a hookup. Work triumphs all, men are simply trainable orgasm machines, and her friends and family are everything.

But with her brother’s wedding rapidly approaching and matchmaking rapidly ensuing from all angles, she decides she needs a buffer from all the “perfect Mr. Rights,” the white tulle and frumpy bridesmaid dresses, and—ick—the heart-warming vows.

What she doesn’t need is Tanner.

Her ex.

The only man who ever managed to weasel his way into her heart.

And by typical male progression, the only man to break it.

She’s done with the gorgeous, chocolate-eyed man who chased her down, got her to open up, and then promptly tossed her aside. She’s done with letting anyone past the barbed wire protecting her heart. Because if Kelsey has learned anything, it’s that she loves fiercely . . . and stupidly.

So no. No men, no matter how gorgeous. Definitely no emotional connections with those of the XY variety. And certainly no boyfriends. Not now. Not again. Not ever.

But when she and Tanner get paired up as a bridesmaid and groomsman at her brother’s wedding, Kelsey finds it hard to remember all her steadfast rules.

Especially when it turns out that Tanner wants to get past all her defenses all over again.

Avoiding Temptation by Rachel Van Dyken

AT - RB banner.jpg

Avoiding Temptation, an all new contemporary romance in the Bro Code series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken, is LIVE!

Copy of AvoidTempation_ebook_HighRes.jpg

I hit on her first.

Realized she was my best friend Finn’s little sister second.

And got a bloody nose third — compliments of Finn after he watched me nearly score with the new underclassman.

After all I did have a reputation on campus, word on the street was that a girl could orgasm within one minute just watching me eat Lucky Charms.

You can’t make this stuff up — even though it was at least four minutes and included outside circumstances. Ahem, I digress.

Point is, not only did I earn the attention of the worst sort of girl for me — my best friend’s only sibling — but now she’s out to seduce me.

Me! One of the most famous Pleasure Ponies of them all!

I can’t shower — she follows me to the bathroom. Literally.

I can’t sleep — Lucky me, she lives in the same dorm.

And I can’t focus on anything except for her taunting eyes every single time something goes her way.

I want her, but I don’t want her to know I want her, and I definitely don’t want to die before graduation, which is looking more and more likely considering we can’t keep our hands off each other.

Something’s gotta give, and I have an inkling I should probably start writing my eulogy now because that something is probably going to be me.

The Hunted

THE HUNTED, a dark fairy tale retelling

by Bethany-Kris Publication Date: January 6, 2020 Genres: Adult, Dark Fantasy, Romance, Paranormal Elements, Fairy Tale, The Little Mermaid

Cover Reveal Credits: London Miller

SYNOPSIS

Let the hunt begin …

After witnessing the murder of his mother by a mermaid, Prince Eryx Bloodhurst of Atlas makes a deal to sedate his need for vengeance: they’ll catch the mermaid who did the deed, but he’ll pay for it with his crown.

Arelle, third princess of the Blu Sea, has never known the true cruelty of the forbidden lands firsthand, but she will soon. The halfling prince with murder in his eyes and the sea’s songs in his blood will make sure of that.

He should kill her. Perhaps, keeping her might be worse.

Two kingdoms are falling. One king is losing it all and another threatens to ruin everything. The rules of the land and sea are changing. Secrets of the past are spilling.

And all because of a prince and his little mermaid—whether they live or die—nothing in the realm will ever be the same.

*

In The Hunted, Bethany-Kris opens a new world—the 9INE REALMS—for readers with a dark fairy tale retelling, and pulls inspiration from the cult classic favorite and the Hans Christian Andersen original to redefine what it means to be The Little Mermaid.

EXCLUSIVE REVEAL EXCERPT

He found she was still standing at the far end of the room and Gods … what a sight she was. Wrapped in silk, with fire-red curls that sprung out in every direction, and something haunted in her beautiful face.

A treat, really.

It took every ounce of willpower he had to stay right where he was and not cross the room to go to her. Despite how the last while had been meant to force her into coming to him, it hadn’t been particularly easy or kind for him, either. Not that he’d expected it to be, but he certainly hadn’t thought it would be this hard. For one, because he suspected none of this would end the way he wanted it to. And for two, because he was determined to get his answers tonight.

He couldn’t do that if he were fucking her.

However, it simply confirmed things he believed.

Something was different with them.

She would tell him what it was.

“What would happen,” he started, tilting his head toward the doors that led to the stairs currently kissing the sea with every wave that rushed up to touch the marble. “If I opened those doors?”

Arelle’s gaze darted from his to the rain-drenched glass. “The rain and wind would get in, wouldn’t it?”

“And make a mess.” He chuckled. “But that isn’t what I mean. What would you do?”

“I …” Her pretty bow-shaped lips turned down at the edges. “I don’t understand.”

“If I opened these doors, stepped back, and said go … what would happen?”

Her sharp inhale rattled through the room.

The following silence echoed.

At her sides, the shaking hands she balled into small fists hid the truth of her nerves. Not that it mattered because he had already seen them. He wondered if she might lie again … would she make him chase circles that answered nothing and leave him with more questions?

She surprised him.

Shocking.

She was always doing that.

More so than she should.

“I would go home because it’s the only place I know.”

“And?” he pressed.

Her audible swallow had him taking three steps closer to her. He still had quite a way to go to reach her spot, but this gave him room to still breathe.

“And what?”

The sting in her tone had him grinning. A defense of hers, he’d noticed, just happened to be that she got a little nasty. It meant he was hitting a raw nerve and she wanted him to stop. Except he couldn’t—not on this.

“And what would happen after you went home?” he asked.

Arelle’s jaw worked with the words she tried to hold back, but she still spit them out at him, anyway. Like they were dirt she wanted out of her mouth. A truth she wished she could hide. He saw and heard it all.

“I would be forced into a mating with a man who isn’t mine, and who I cannot be mated to. And when the bond didn’t take like they all know it should—”

“They’ll know the truth,” he interrupted, his tone saying calm.

Although how, he didn’t know.

Her chin quivered. “They’ll know it’s already been done. I’ve already mated.”

“When?”

“Eryx—”

When?”
