SAVING YOU by Alex Taylor


Alex Taylor

Release Date: July 11



He met me on my worst day. He’s the cop that saved my daughter and me.

My daughter somehow managed to pull this magnetic man into our lives. I vowed to stay away from men after the disaster that was my marriage, but every little thing he does wears me down. He’s there for us when things go wrong and then starts promising to always be there. Not just for me, but my daughter, too.


For years, I’ve said I would never be in a relationship. I have too much baggage. Then Bailey and her daughter entered my life and everything changed. They flip my world on its axis, and my protective instincts kick in. It doesn’t take long before I decide that I’m going to make them both mine.

Will Bailey and I be able to get over our hang-ups about relationships? Will her ex push us apart or only cause our relationship to grow?

SAVING YOU (Destined Love #2) by Alex Taylor Review

Saving You (Destined Love #2)Saving You by Alex Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alex Taylor heat things up with SAVING YOU (Destined Love #2). In this story, Officer Caleb Sutton meets single mom Bailey Emerson and her daughter Charlotte (Charlie) after responding to a 911 call. Neither one of them is looking for a relationship, but they keep winding up in each other’s paths.

Alex Taylor does a great job with this story. Both main characters feel they have too much baggage for the other to be interested in them. Bailey had an abusive marriage. Caleb suffers from PTSD from his time in the military. They face compelling situations, especially with Bailey’s ex. They help each other heal. I love Charlie. She is sort of an unintentional match maker, along with Caleb’s friends. Being a hockey fan, I appreciate the detailed recreational hockey scenes.

This is the first book that I have read by Alex Taylor. It was skillfully written. I enjoyed her writing style. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy this book.

Hit 'Em Hard by Kat Mizera

Hit 'Em Hard by Kat Mizera is now available!

Available on All Platforms

The Phantoms are back with a vengeance… and the City of Angels will never be the same.


Chasing my pro hockey dreams in the City of Angels has been a relentless battle. Each season feels like starting over, and being miles away from my family only adds to the struggle. I don’t know what I would do without my online gaming friends. Especially @Empress.

I know nothing about her—not even her real name—but what I do know with certainty is that our chats are my lifeline. I wish she would let me in, but she guards her secrets even more closely than I do.

A chance encounter puts us in the same room together, and the attraction IRL is next level. But before I can make my play, she disappears. I'm desperate to find her again and my meddling, matchmaking mother shows up just in time to help. Can I convince her that I'll be there no matter what she's hiding? Or will we both get hit hard in this real life game of love?

Start the entire standalone hockey series now!

Meet the Bang Brothers—five hot hockey-playing brothers who are allergic to commitment.

The brothers are about to face off against their newly-retired mother…who suddenly has plenty of time to play matchmaker. Add in their baby sister and some secret dating, a single dad, an accidental pregnancy, a marriage of convenience, and a wrong bed—or two—and these siblings are not going to know what hit them!

Hit 'em Hard (Bang Brothers Hockey #3) by Kat Mizera Review

Hit 'em Hard (Bang Brothers Hockey #3)Hit 'em Hard by Kat Mizera
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kat Mizera hits it in the net with HIT 'EM HARD (Bang Brothers Hockey #3). Hockey offensive defenseman Jensen Bang has been frustrated by his losing hockey season. He is thankful for the outlet with his online gaming friends. He built a connection with @Empress. He considers asking to meet her. Then the two unexpectedly end up at the same place. @Empress turns out to be former actress Bailey Walker. They are immediately attracted to each other. However, Bailey had a traumatic past. She is not sure she can put behind her.

I love Bailey and Jensen, the two a perfect for each other. They have a lot in common and similar tastes. Bailey is trying to heal from her past, literally and figuratively. Jensen is patient and thoughtful. I love Mama Bang. The story was heartwarming and entertaining.

Kat Mizera does a fantastic job with this novel. It is skillfully written. It is an excellent addition to both the Bang Brothers Hockey and L.A. Phantoms series. I appreciated that characters from both series made appearances in this book. I am looking forward to Leif’s story next LOCK ‘EM DOWN by Gina Azzi. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy this book.

Frozen Over by Ruth Stilling


𝙵𝚁𝙾𝚉𝙴𝙽 𝙾𝚅𝙴𝚁: A friends to lovers romance (Seattle Scorpions Series Book 2) by Ruth Stilling releases on July 18th! We are thrilled to share this teaser with you!  

PREORDER TODAY! https://geni.us/FrozenOver

ADD TO YOUR GR: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/211142792-frozen-over

What to expect: 

❄️High school friends to lovers

❄️He’s a bit grumpy x she’s utter ☀️

❄️Found family

❄️Huge banter and swoon

❄️She falls first but he falls so much HARDER

❄️Friend’s ex


After the way she broke me, I’ve made one promise to myself: never again will I put my heart out there.

Apparently she loved me, but that still didn’t stop her from doing what she did and frankly, I’m done with relationships, and I’m done with searching for love when it has no interest in finding me.

After the hit I took last season, I plan to focus on rehabilitation and getting my mind back into the game I’ve loved for so many years. I don’t need distractions, and I don’t need another woman in my bed or my head. I’ve got enough complications to last me a lifetime.

But I didn’t expect her sunshine, and I wasn’t prepared for the way Luna Johnson has worked her way into my heart and thawed its frosty state.

I keep trying to resist her, knowing this will only end badly—she’s one of my oldest friends, and I have to keep it that way. But man am I attracted to her, and the more we reconnect, the more I feel the happiness that’s been missing from my life for so long.

Luna wants more, I know she does. And dammit I want to give her everything and not just the broken pieces I have to offer—it’s what she deserves. If only I wasn’t so scared of getting hurt again or, worse still, pulling her down with me. I’ve got baggage and people in my life who want anything but my happy ending, and I know they aren’t afraid to hurt Luna to get to me.

I’d convinced myself the stars will never align, and slowly, I’ve accepted that too.

But perhaps my heart is safe this time, and maybe I can take a chance on love again?

If it’s going to be with anyone, it has to be with Luna Johnson.

Penalty to the Heart (Puckered Hearts #3) by Ivy Fox Review

Penalty to the Heart (Puckered Hearts #3)Penalty to the Heart by Ivy Fox
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ivy Fox gets a hat trick with book three in the Puckered Hearts series, PENALTY TO THE HEART. This is Boston Guardians' goalie Caleb Donovan’s and in-house therapist Dr. Roxanne Seymour’s story. The novel takes place after book two, POWER PLAY RIVALS. At the end of that story, Caleb and his brother/team captain Jack, are in a car accident. Jack is in a coma, and Caleb is struggling with guilt.

Ivy Fox does an amazing job with this story. It is heartfelt and emotional. Roxanne is tasked with helping prevent Caleb from self-sabotaging himself. Caleb is suffering from survivors’ guilt. She had suffered a loss in the past that allowed her to empathize with him. They begin to grow feelings for one another but Roxanne is struggling with the ethics of a relationship due to her job.

PENALTY TO THE HEART is skillfully written and thought-provoking. The characters are dynamic and likeable. It is an excellent addition to the Puckered Hearts series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy this book.
