’s dead wrong.
Misadventures on the Night Shift was one hot, erotic romance with a bit of healing and heart thrown in. This book had a high steam factor, but it was so much more than just the steamy scenes. There was hopefulness, healing, and finding strength.
Night Shift hotel clerk Abby finally came face to face with her long time celebrity crush. But an indecent proposal he made to her threatened to bring back a past that she worked hard to put behind her.
Rock star Lucas F*ing Ford needed some inspiration. When a spitfire night shift hotel clerk was not afraid to tell him like it is, he found his muse.
I love that this book was about more than just the heat. There was a level of intimacy that I definitely didn’t see coming from the way these two started out. I loved that Lucas became so much more than the wild rock star he started out to be.
Misadventures on the Night Shift was a fun, steamy read. It was the second book I’ve read in the Misadventures series, and the first book I’ve read from Lauren Rowe. I will definitely be looking for more books from this new-to-me author, and from the Misadventures series.
USA Today and internationally bestselling author Lauren Rowe lives in San Diego, California, where, in addition to writing books, she performs with her dance/party band at events all over Southern California, writes songs, takes embarrassing snapshots of her ever-patient Boston terrier, Buster, spends time with her wonderful family, and narrates audiobooks. Much to Lauren’s thrill, her books have been translated all over the world in multiple languages and hit multiple domestic and international bestseller lists. With enticing characters, enthralling situations and a general love of romantic fiction, Lauren has created a world of her own, full of wit and sensual desire.

“I was sure my heart had withered away years ago, but then you smiled at me and I felt it beat again.” ~Gage
Years ago, I fell in love with my best friend’s little brother. Then, he took his own life, leaving me shattered and unable to piece my heart back together. I’ve been a zombie for nine long years. Until a crazy, gorgeous man walked into Heathens Ink and injected color back into my world of gray. No matter how hard I try to resist Beck he just won’t give up on me. I would need steel willpower to withstand his gorgeous long legs in his high heels, and his drawer full of lacy lingerie. But is this just a kinky hook up or does it have the possibility for more?
“We’re both broken, but our jagged edges fit together well” ~ Beck
When you’re half of a whole you never contemplate what life would be like without your matching piece. Since my twin sister, Brianna, died last year, nothing I do seems to quiet my soul. I know there has to be some way for me to feel happy and whole again. And, when I look into the pained eyes of the tattoo artist at Heathens Ink I feel like I have a purpose. I can’t explain it, but I feel like I have to find a way to put him back together.
Shattered Pieces is book 4 in The Heathens Ink Series and can be read as a standalone.
“Dance with me.” Beck holds his hand out to me. His eyes spark with amusement at what I’m sure is the obvious horror in my expression.
“I don’t dance.”
“Come on, you’re supposed to be trying fun, new things. I’m not expecting Fred Astaire, just stand in my general vicinity and nod your head to the beat.”
I sigh in resignation and take Beck’s hand, refusing to notice how soft his skin is or how good it feels to touch someone, however casually.
Still clutching my hand, Beck starts to dance. He starts out tame, simply swaying to the music. But, before long he’s spinning and shimmying like a ballerina on crack. Even being goofy and over the top he’s utterly graceful. And the joy in his expression is heartbreaking in its beauty.
When he spins out and then into my arms like a tango dancer, a laugh escapes from my chest, too full of a warmth to contain it.
“You have a really nice laugh,” Beck says, smiling up at me.
My heart thuds violently against my ribcage. Some long-forgotten place in my brain wakes up from its long slumber and starts to make irrational demands like kiss him and make Beck mine.
I pull my arms back, forcing a smile as blood rushes in my ears. Beck isn’t mine. He can never be mine. I had someone who was mine and I broke him beyond repair.
“I’m afraid I’m a bit rusty,” I admit with chagrin.
“Never too late to pick it back up again,” Beck reasons, stepping close again but not so close to warrant another retreat on my part.
His lips are rosy pink and so soft, slightly parted and unbelievably tempting. I can’t remember if we were discussing laughing or kissing and I don’t really care.
“For the first time in a long time I’m starting to wonder if that’s true.” The hope my statement sparks in Beck’s eyes forces me to backpedal as guilt washes over me. “It feels wrong to imagine happiness is possible, even in some vague, future way.”
“I’m not going to give you any trite bullshit like saying Johnny would’ve wanted you to be happy. I didn’t know Johnny and even if I had there’s no way to know what he would’ve wanted because he’s gone. But you’re still here. You still have a life, a heart, and the right to be happy whether now or in a vague future.” The way Beck holds my gaze is like a cobra ensnaring a mouse. “You don’t need Johnny’s permission to move on and be happy. You only need to give yourself permission.”
I’m an author of m/m and new adult romance. I have a strong passion for writing characters with a lot of heart and soul, and a bit of humor as well.

Rules have never been more fun to break…
I’m going to die an old maid with ten cats… Oh wait, I already have two…
I’m never going to feel the arms of a man around my waist again… Well, that’s what I thought until a pair caught me from face planting on the floor of my OB/GYN’s office. I didn’t even notice that my paper gown was open, showing off my double lattes to the man I was least expecting… Greyson Davis is the reason I need to set boundaries and rules—rules that I can’t break.
The first thing you’re taught in ethics class is not to fall for a patient. They don’t teach you how to not fall for one, just said that you shouldn’t. Everything changed the second I walked in to see my sixth patient of the day. That’s when I set eyes on the sexy blonde bombshell who would cause me to break every rule ever written.

I am so hooked on this Notorious Devils series. Hayley manages to create new and different characters who’s stories are completely their own. Soar and Ginny’s story had so many twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. There was angst, sexy times, suspense and action. This was one hard-fought HEA that these two truly deserved!
Imogene Caroline Stewart-Huntington and Sloane McKinley Huntington seemed to have it all growing up. Wealth, luxury, and the spoils that money can buy. But they chose to walk away and live a life that was completely different.
Ginny was so much stronger than I expected her to be from the glimpses we got of her in earlier books. She often came off as cold, bi***y, and detached. That is far from the case. Her seemingly perfect family was not so perfect. Everyone in her life hurt her in some way, but she stayed strong and fought for the life she truly wanted and deserved.
I never thought I’d like Soar. His character in earlier books was kind of selfish, and a bit sleazy! He was only looking for a good time and didn’t care who it was with and what the consequences were. But he finally was forced to sober up, grow up, and face his demons and mistakes. Once he finally was thinking clearly, he fought to make things better. To heal the hurt he caused the one person who truly loved him for him.
This series is quickly coming to an end and I will be so sad to see these rough, sexy, tough, and sometimes sweet Notorious Devils go.
Kimberly’s Hot Reads – “OMG y’all this is the best book in the series yet.”
Bookalicious Babes Blog – “Addictive, compelling, raw, intense, captivating…”

OMG!! What just happened? This book completely took over my life for 2 days. I could not get enough of Juliet and Tack, and how this story was going to unfold.
I just finished reading this book, and my head is swimming. There were times when I had to ask myself, What did I just read? Now don’t get me wrong, it was not a bad thing at all. Just the opposite.
This book had me questioning my feelings, questioning how I would react if I were Juliet, or even Tack. My feelings were all jumbled while reading, but I absolutely could not put it down. I was pulled in and hooked from the very beginning.
There were twists and turns, a constant push and pull that at times seemed so wrong, and then seemed so right. There were times where I actually felt a bit uncomfortable about how much I wanted them to get together. But then Ms. Dunbar turned it around and made what they had seem perfect. There was so much symbolism, and at one point at the end, I actually doubted that any of it happened.
This book took me on a deserted island adventure. I could not put it down.

Fresh off a divorce from a Hollywood hotshot, Madison Atwood needs an escape. With the paparazzi fresh on her heels and her love life splashed on every tabloid, she runs away to a swanky retreat in Northern California. Avalon Springs is the mountainside haven she needs to find herself again.
Luke Dawson lives off the grid, preferring solitude to society. When he finds a beautiful woman soaking in the hot springs on his property, he can’t stop himself from watching her. She captures his attention, but she’s just a city girl—a beautiful distraction disturbing the peace he’s settled here to find.
When Madison discovers Luke’s secluded cabin, he can’t turn her away again. They make no promises. Madison needs to feel wanted again, and Luke misses the touch of a woman. But when mother nature has other plans, they’re forced to spend more than a night of passion together. Can Luke say goodbye to the only woman who’s made him feel anything in years, and can Madison leave behind the man who brought her back to life?
This was a fun lighthearted read. I loved that it was not filled with a lot of angst, just two broken souls finding each other and their place.
I loved Madison’s spunk. She could have just wallowed in her heartbreak after what her ex did to her. But instead she opened herself up to the possibility of finding what she needed, in a rugged mountain man with a big heart.
Luke is hiding from a world he no longer feels he belongs. He was satisfied to stay hidden in his mountain hideaway, that is until Madison changed his mind and introduced him to the middle ground.
The chemistry between Madison and Luke heated up my kindle. I love their spark, and their unwillingness to give up on each other.

RC Martin really turned up the heat this time. Leo and Jill’s attraction was a force to be reckoned with, but there was so much more than just the physical attraction. There was a depth to their relationship that could not be denied, no matter how hard they tried.
I loved the push and pull of these two. There was just the right amount of angst to keep you wondering if Jill and Leo will get their HEA.
I love the relationship that Jill has with her cousin and best friend Corrie. They are fun and easygoing, but will protect the other to the end.
Leo is the ultimate alpha male. He is sexy, brooding, and a bit damaged. It takes Jill, with her strength and loyalty to bring him around and show him what true love really is.
This is one of my favorite books by RC Martin. It will definitely go on my list of re-reads!
If there’s one thing Mika Rybin knows, it’s loss. While he was raised to be an ambitious Bratva man, the mob that preserved him has also robbed him more than once. When the tables of life start to turn in his favor, and the beautiful Pakhan’s daughter chooses him for eternity, he’ll be damned if he allows the rules of the organization he serves faithfully to rob him, once again.
If there’s one thing Oksana Vetrova is sure of, it is that she will play the role of a pawn no longer. The death of her mother is a loss the entire Bratva grieves, but it pushes her father to the brink of insanity. When his careless and rash decisions threaten to rob her of the man that she loves, he puts into motion a chain of deathly events that are certain to change everything.
Secrets, lies, and betrayal are what Oksana and her badman are up against—but they made a vow of forever—and neither of them is letting go without a fight.
Recommended for readers 18+ due to Sexual content, Language, and Violence.
Oksana always had everything handed to her. But when the reality of her life finally came to light, she realized that all was not what it seemed. Throughout this story, she found her inner strength, along with the love of her life. Mika didn’t grow up with a lot, but he learned to protect those he cared about.
The chemistry between Sana and Mika was amazing. They had to fight for their love and it made what they had all the more special.
Hayley pulled in more of the underlying plot in the Russian Bratva series, there were so many unexpected twists, and “shut the front door” moments in this volume. I can’t wait to see where this Bratva family will take us.
I was born and raised in California. My husband and I met when I was just 16. We were married a few years later, moving to Oregon while he was in the US Coast Guard.
Texas is now where we call home, where our boots rest, and where we’re raising our two little boys and a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.
