SOUTHERN SUNSHINE by Natasha Madison

Release Date: September 7

Reed 

I never wanted to be a cowboy, living in a small town was suffocating.

The military was my out.

I saw every place I ever wanted and everything that nightmares are made of.

Until I almost lost my life and then I ended up back home.

 

Hazel 

Finding out that I was pregnant the night before I left for college changed everything. I left that small town and vowed to never return.

When my grandfather died, I had no choice but to go back home. 

The plan was just for two weeks. 

I thought it would be quick and easy, until he was standing at the back door asking questions. 

 

Secrets never stay secrets for long in this town.

Combustible
Al Riske
Publication date: May 16th 2021
Genres: Coming of Age

Its that summer between the end of high school and the start of something else. Dean Stockton and Curt Hutton are best friends, and more often than not you can find them rowing on the Rogue River at dawn.

Together they experience something they will never be able to describe adequately. But then they wont really need to. Not to each other. Its that moment of swing when rowers find the rhythm and everything falls into place. The shell seems to lift right out of the water.

Enter Isabelle Smiley. Shes beautiful yet insecure, knowing yet innocent, and crazy about Curt in a way that no girl has ever been crazy about Dean. She wants Curt to choose a college closer to home than the one he and Dean have selected—and she can be persuasive.

Id never be able to hold out against a girl like Smiley,” Dean admits.

Dont say that,” Curt replies. I told her shed have to convince you, too.”

Everyone is conflicted in this story of friendship, lust, and life-changing choices. Only one thing seems certain to all of them: If Smiley strikes a match, Dean will catch fire.

EXCERPT:

All the Way to France

The Sandpiper Bar & Grill overlooks the mouth of the Rogue River, and right now the parking lot is jammed with cars. A red Mustang convertible—the top down, for this is a starlit night in June—circles slowly to the back door.

In the kitchen, the scene is a whirl of cooks, busers, and dish washers.

Wearing an apron and a floppy chefs hat, Dean cuts into a fresh cheesecake and passes a slice to the server waiting in the pantry window.

Above the din, a line cook hollers—

Stockton, youve got visitors out back.”

Fellow pantry cook Victor Lee is shucking littleneck clams next to Dean, who says—

Cover for me, will you?”

Backed into a loading zone behind the restaurant, Curts freshly waxed convertible couldnt be shinier. The girl from Brookings is still seated on the passenger side; Curt opens the door for her.

Dean takes off his hat as he pushes through the screen door. He runs one hand through his hair, sweaty from the heat of the kitchen, while his eyes stay glued to the girls legs as she climbs out of the low-slung car. Her dress—white with tiny black polka dots—rides up and he can see all the way to France. She blushes but theres reason to believe she is more pleased than embarrassed.

Dean, Id like you to meet Isabelle—oof!”

Curts date removes her elbow from his rib cage.

You know I dont like that name,” she says.

Well, how am I supposed to introduce you?”

She turns to Dean—

Just call me Smiley,” she says. Thats my last name but its what everybody uses.”

They shake hands. Hers are soft and smooth—so much so that its unsettling.

Whats wrong with…?”

Smiley cringes, so he doesnt say her first name.

It reminds me of my grandmother,” she says. I was named after her, actually, but I cant stand her. The feelings mutual, Im sure.”

You dont look like an Isabelle anyway.”

Thank you.”

Only two words, but they say Dean is exactly right—and Curt is just … mean.

Busy tonight?” Curt asks.

A madhouse. But I think weve got it under control now. How was the show?”

Curt holds his hand out flat, palm down, and tips it from side to side. Smiley looks appalled at his lack of enthusiasm.

She cried the whole time,” Curt says.

Well, it was sad … but I liked it,” Smiley replies. You should see it, Dean.”

Since Dean doesnt have a girlfriend and has never been to a movie alone, hes not sure what to say.

EXCERPT:

Piercing blue eyes glanced down over the curves Id inherited from Mother at too young of an age, but rather than feeling weirded out by Gideons good long look at me, warmth tingled into the tips of my breasts. Heat flooded his eyes when they met mine—but blinked out like a flashlight, his face becoming cold and hard.

And leaving me breathless. Shaky and unsettled in a way I didnt know how to deal with.

Sis,” he said, his tone as mocking as his slow smirk that fluttered my belly.

Proper poise, I could hear Mothers echoing hiss from many times before between my ears.

I lifted my chin to do the same as hed done to me, my narrowed gaze sliding down over his suit as though I found him lacking in every way—which I totally didnt. Broad shoulders for seventeen, he could have been out felling trees. And that hair…those bedroom eyes, my best friend Jenny would say, could talk a girl into giving up her first kiss.

He stirred things inside me I didnt understand, and I hated him for the curiosity tingling through my limbs and whispering in my mind.

Im not your sis,” I shot back with a huff and flounce of my hair.

Series: Blood Fury MC #9
Author: Jeanne St. James
Genre: Contemporary/MC Romance
Release Date: September 4, 2021






‘𝙊𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙖𝙜𝙖𝙞𝙣, 𝙅𝙚𝙖𝙣𝙣𝙚 𝙎𝙩. 𝙅𝙖𝙢𝙚𝙨 𝙗𝙧𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙨 𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙚𝙙𝙜𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙞𝙧 𝙨𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙨 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙖𝙣𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙮 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙤𝙣𝙡𝙮 𝙩𝙪𝙜𝙨 𝙤𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙝𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙨𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙨 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢 𝙤𝙣 𝙖 𝙟𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙣𝙚𝙮 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙩𝙬𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙣𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙣 𝙖 𝙧𝙤𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙧 𝙘𝙤𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙧.’ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Review from The Overflowing Bookcase


They call him The Great Oz, but for Ozzy, sometimes life isn’t so great…

Over twenty years ago, at seventeen, the Blood Fury’s colors were inked onto Ozzy’s back.
But when the club imploded, he was one of the few who survived.
Throughout his life, the Original has made mistakes.
Too many to count.
Most didn’t matter.
Until the last one.
The one he regrets.
The one that left a mark.
Once he realized he screwed up, it was too late.
Now his urge to hit the road is strong, to go back to being a nomad tempting.
Recent events proved he never should’ve come back since being a rolling stone’s in his blood.
Because back then, he’d only joined the Blood Fury for one reason and one reason only…
Revenge.
Now, once again, nothing’s holding him in Manning Grove any longer.
Until someone tied to his past appears.
She makes him reevaluate his life choices, in both the past and for the future.
However, will he learn from his latest mistake, or is he destined to make the same one all over again?
Or will his choice be made for him once the truth is revealed?

Note: Blood & Bones: Ozzy is the ninth book in the Blood Fury MC series. As always, this book has no cheating, no cliffhanger, and has an HEA. It’s best to read this series in order. It’s also highly recommended to read Crash: A Dirty Angels MC/Blood Fury MC Crossover before Ozzy’s story.

Vows of a Mobster by Eva Winners

Title: Vows of a Mobster
Author: Eva Winners
Genre: Mafia Age Gap Romance Standalone
Release Date: September 7, 2021





⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “This book knocked me off my feet! It’s flipping brilliant!” Goodreads Reviewer


The truth is never what it seems. Neither are the people, regardless of who they are.

✅ Mafia romance
✅ Age Gap
✅ Murder mystery
✅ Steamy sex
✅ Violence

I knew the past would come back to haunt me. It was only a matter of time before my world came crashing down.

The only thing I didn’t expect was Mateo. The head of the Italian mafia. We were never meant to cross paths; our worlds vastly different.

His green gaze captured me, his touch burning through my defenses. The words he whispered melted away all the years of loneliness. But the secret I kept could get me killed. If he spared me, his rivals wouldn’t. As my secrets unravel, it could cost me everything and everyone I loved.




“Marissa, Daphne,” I called out to both of them. 


“We are here,” I heard Daphne’s voice and I followed it into the kitchen. She had a wet cloth on her forehead and Marissa was rubbing ice all over her face. 


“Shit, how much did we drink last night?” Marissa asked.


“Too much apparently,” I answered them. “Or not enough. Because somehow Mateo and I ended up having phone sex.”


“What?” Both of them screeched at me and I winced, a sharp pain shooting through my brain. They must have felt the same because they groaned, painful expressions on their faces. 


“He told me I have to be in his office first thing this morning and demanded I spend the night with him tomorrow. Well, that would be today.”


They both stared at me dumbfounded. “Well, what am I to do?” I asked cranky. 


Those two shared a look. “You have to pack an overnight bag,” Marissa started moving immediately. “We’ll take Emma to daycare. Don’t be late to his office. Did he specify time?”


I shook my head. “I don’t think so.”


“That means, you have to be in his office at eight a.m.”


I glanced at the clock. It was seven already. “That’s right,” Marissa announced. “You don’t have time. You make him focus on you and your pussy.”


“Marissa!”


“What?” She shrugged her shoulders. “I was thinking about a plan. Make him pussy whipped.”


“When did you have time to think of a plan? While we were drunk?” I asked her suspiciously. “That was so stupid,” I muttured under my breath. “My first phone sex and I go and do it with the mob boss.” 


“Honestly, I can’t believe he had phone sex.” Marissa admitted. “Did he come?”


I put my hand on my forehead. “Oh my God, I can’t believe this circus!”


“Did you come?” Daphne asked. “Did you both come?”


“Someone please kill me,” I raised my eyes to the ceiling, then realizing what I said, quickly corrected myself. “Nobody better kill me. And yes, we both came.” 


“Wow!” Marissa watched me with awe although I had a feeling it was for all the wrong reasons. “Yes, make him pussy whipped,” she added, a firm decision in her voice.


They both started pushing me back up the stairs and dug out a bag, then started to shove stuff into it. 


“Marissa,” I complained. “You are packing like I’m going away for a week.”


She shook her head and then mumbled, “Pussy whipped.”


“Would you please stop saying that?” I ordered her. “You are freaking me out.”


“I’m freaked out,” Daphne chimed in stiffly, her eyes twinkling. “I can’t quite look in the direction of the bed, because you and Mateo having phone sex keeps coming to mind.”


I rolled my eyes. “You two are asses.”


Marissa stood up. “He will probably want to buy you stuff, like freaky sexy stuff.” She took my face between her hands. “Let him.” I went to open my mouth and she quickly continued talking. “You let him buy you stuff, Brianna! You hear me.”


I took a heavy sigh. “This is getting out of hand.”


“Brianna, he is pussy whipped,” Marissa emphasized each word. 


“Well, technically he can’t possibly be since he hasn’t seen my pussy nor touched me. I did all the work.”
