🌟BOOK BLITZ:🌟 Tasting Her Christmas Cookies by Alina Jacobs {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}

Tasting Her Christmas Cookies by Alina Jacobs

Release Date: November 19th 2019
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

Winter is coming—and unfortunately it's bringing Christmas with it.
I loathe the holiday. I hate holiday parties, fragrant decorations, and hokey movies. If I had my way it would be winter all year round and never Christmas.
Nothing burns like the cold—except a hot oven.
That's right; against my better judgment I agreed to let The Great Christmas Bake-Off film in my tower.
And St. Nick help me but I even agreed to be a judge.
Christmas is like the perfect sugar cookie—it slowly melts in your mouth, sweetening every taste bud, making you wish it could last forever.
I love Christmas. I love the cheerful music, the fun sweaters, and the holiday lights. Most of all I love Christmas Cookies.
A begrudging bake-off judge, I refuse to let grouchy billionaire Owen Frost hate Christmas. The man is overworked, his employees are uninspired, and his life is seriously lacking in Yuletide cheer. I want to stuff his stocking with sugary goodness to put him in a very festive mood.
So I dressed up as a sexy elf and gave Owen a taste of something extra special. You should have seen his eyes roll back in his head when he bit into the perfect sugar cookie!
I can't let Owen Frost be a distraction. Things are insane enough without a sexy billionaire.
My baking subscription service is in the death throes.
My Christmas-ruining step sister is trying to sabotage me in the bake-off.
I'm being stalked by elves on the shelf come to life.
Ok that last one is a little weird, but welcome to my disaster of a life.
I need to win The Great Christmas Bake-Off to pay of my debts and launch my baking career. Sleeping with one of the judges is going to ruin my chance for a merry Christmas. Owen with his washboard abs and big Christmas package is a bad idea. It's best to keep that all wrapped under the tree.
But when he said in that deep, sexy voice, "Can I have another taste of your Christmas cookies?" Well, let's just say I'm unwrapping one particular Christmas present early!
Tasting Her Christmas Cookies is a standalone holiday romantic comedy. If you love Christmas desserts, like to laugh out loud at holiday innuendoes, and want Santa to put a tall, good-looking guy under your tree, then pick up this full-length, steamy romance novel! There are no cliffhangers but there is a very happy (Christmas!) ever after!


“We are having a Christmas bath scene in the near future,” I said to the camera, “with holiday bath bombs and themed cocktails. But unfortunately, it won't be tonight. The bake-off starts tomorrow, baking fans!”

I looked longingly at the bathtub. Then, making sure the phone was definitely not recording, because I did not need to be that kind of Instagrammer, I took a quick shower. I seriously could not get over how huge the bathroom was. I could live in it. With a toaster and a mini fridge, I would totally be good.

After wrapping myself in the robe, I tied a T-shirt around my hair. I had frizzy hair on a good day; keeping my curls manageable was a perpetual struggle. I applied a gingerbread-cookie-scented moisturizer while my videos uploaded. Because I was busy scrolling through my phone and answering comments as I came out of the bathroom, I didn't notice the half-naked man until he swore.

I looked up and screamed.

“Help! Help! Stalker!” I shrieked and ineffectively pointed at the stranger. Between the rippling muscles, the washboard abs, and an ass I could bounce a quarter on, I hoped he wasn't actually here to hurt me, because he could do some damage. Pointing and shrieking wasn't going to stop him. Fortunately, he looked more shocked and horrified than angry and violent.

“Stop screaming!” he bellowed. A freezing breeze blew into the room. It was as if the man had brought the rage of winter into the master suite with him. He looked like it, too, with his ice-blue eyes and silver-white hair. “This is my penthouse. You are not authorized to be here. That makes you the stalker!”

I stopped screaming. It clearly wasn't helping anything. I also couldn’t help but notice that the bathroom wasn't the only thing that was huge in the room. With him wearing nothing but boxer briefs, I could tell Santa had brought the handsome man a very large Christmas package indeed. The breeze blew in from the balcony, swirling the strange man's clean and masculine scent around the room. I forced myself to ignore it.

“Get out of my house,” Big Christmas Package said flatly.

“You get out!” I shrieked. “I'm a bake-off contestant. This isn't your room!”

“What the—” he grabbed his clothes, tugging on his pants. “The Great Christmas Bake-Off? I cannot have Christmas invading every element of my life. This is ridiculous. Christmas is ridiculous. It's such a stupid, childish holiday.” He punctuated his words by snatching up articles of clothing.

“Hey now!” I said, hands on my hips, fear subsiding. “Christmas is never ridiculous. It's the best holiday ever. And if you can't see that, well then, you’re just a grinch, aren’t you?”

He advanced on me. I was suddenly very aware of how large he was. Christmas package notwithstanding, this dude was tall, broad shouldered, with rippling muscles. He could probably split me in two.

Yes, please.

“You're some stupid little baker who never outgrew the childish fantasy of Christmas,” he sneered.

My nose was inches away from his chest. He glowered down at me. I was too angry to be aware of his half-naked body. Okay, maybe I was like fifteen percent aware. But the majority of my energy was focused on being offended on behalf of Christmas.

“Don't insult baking,” I said, giving him my best “I want to speak to the manager vibe,” though it was ruined by the fact that I had to crane my neck up to see him and that I was completely naked under the robe. “And never insult Christmas!”

His nostrils flared slightly.

“Men like you constantly belittle the work that women do to keep cultural traditions like Christmas alive,” I continued, poking him in the chest.

“We decorate homes to make them cozy.”


“We cook holiday dinners and bake festive desserts.”


“We host parties that bring families and friends together.”

Before I could poke him again, he grabbed my hand in his much-larger one. Then, realizing what he’d done, he quickly released it.

“I will not stand for your bad attitude!” I declared.

He glared down at me, strong jaw clenched, eyes cold as a frozen lake. “I can't even believe this,” he finally snarled. He grabbed his briefcase and stormed out, still shirtless.

“Oh my God!” Fiona exclaimed, wide-eyed, as she ran into the room. She hugged me then pushed me to sit on the bed. “Are you okay? Who was that? Why was he in here? Someone call the police!”

“I knew it! You're trying to steal my boyfriend,” Amber yelled at me, rushing into the room. 

“That’s Owen Frost, and he's mine!”

“You had a plan when you walked into my office five minutes ago. What was it?” He gripped the edge of the armrest with both hands, crossing his legs at his ankles. The tiny flame in my chest grew bigger and spread down to my core.

“I had no plan.” I admitted because the extent of my thoughts when he texted was to come in here and have sex. All I could think of was touching him and feeling his weight on me again. But now I was a little pissed. He could’ve been more explicit. Like, hey, I’m just here to work, bring me the report. No sex. Get your mind out of the gutter. He could also wipe that knowing smile off his face. “What makes you think I had a plan?” I crossed my arms over my chest to cover my hardened nipples.

He rubbed the side of his face. “The thigh-high stockings. You know how they drive me wild. Even if I can’t see them, I know that’s the only kind you own.”

If that was true, why was he still five feet away from me? Why had he not ripped my clothes off already and had his way with me on the couch?

“I have a meeting to go to.” I bolted to the door. Before I could open it, his large hand pressed against it, effectively blocking me from leaving.

“I don’t think so.” His voice was deep and so full of meaning. He walked me back to the living area until my butt hit the back of the sofa. “You had a plan. Show me.” He gripped my waist and shifted so he was the one caged in.

I could go, or I could stay and get what I came here for. I slipped my hands inside his suit jacket and pushed it off his shoulders. His dark gaze stayed on me as I removed his dress shirt. A low moan like a hiss escaped his lips when I ran my hands down his muscled chest. His pecs were harder than I remembered. It seemed Derek’s hard body was directly proportional to the amount of stress he had at work. The more they pinned on him, the more time he spent in his boxing ring. These past three weeks must have been hell for him.

“Now you.” His voice sounded strained.

Self-control was Derek’s superpower. I gave up all pretenses and removed my blazer and silky top quickly. My skin felt hot from needing him so much. His lips parted when I finally let my skirt pool at my feet.

He cradled my face and kissed me hard. “Fuck. Valentina. You came to work wearing that underneath?” His mouth was warm, and he tasted of cinnamon gum. I melted into him, fumbling with his belt.

“The door.” I panted in between kisses.

“I locked it.” He gripped my ass and wrapped my legs around his waist as he strode around the sofa and sat with me straddling him. “Valentina. How do you do it? How do you make me forget about everything?” He freed me from my bra and sucked on my aching nipples, switching back and forth until I couldn’t wait anymore.

“I need you now,” I whispered in his ear.

I didn’t care that my voice was laced with desperate desire. He cupped my butt cheeks and lifted me enough to give him room to lie flat on the cushions with his head on the decorative pillow. My thighs rubbed his sides as I rested on top of him, topless and without a clue what to do next.

My confusion must have registered on my face because he placed both hands behind his head and grinned at me. His biceps bulged on either side of him.

“Your show.”


He bucked under me to get comfortable, as if he were getting ready to watch a movie or something. The grin that twitched his lip was both infuriating and such a turn-on.

“You want me inside you. Do it.”

🌟BOOK BLITZ:🌟 Twisted Surprise by Emery Jacobs {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}

Twisted Surprise by Emery Jacobs

Release Date: November 15th 2019
Series: A Twisted Fate Christmas Novella
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Or at least it’s supposed to be. With the holidays quickly approaching, Jovie is looking forward to spending some quality time with her boyfriend Jack.

First a family Thanksgiving in Brownsboro, Georgia with her parents, followed by a magical Christmas with their friends back in Houston.

But Jack’s disappearing act leaves Jovie wondering if their relationship will even survive the holidays.

Ready for a Twisted Surprise? Unwrap this romantic Christmas tale to find out what Jack’s been hiding!


“Merry Christmas, baby,” Jack whispers, his warm breath dancing across the skin below my ear.

I rub my eyes, turn my head to face him, and smile. “Merry Christmas.”

His fingers skim across my bare arm then slide in between mine, squeezing my hand gently.

“Did you sleep good?”

I nod. “Yeah, actually I did.” I don’t remember much after drifting off to sleep last night, which I usually equate to a good night’s sleep.

“How about you? Was the couch good to you?” I motion toward the small sofa beside the bed and cringe. There is no way anyone could sleep well on that tiny thing, but knowing Jack, he’ll lie and say he did just so I won’t feel bad that he stayed the night.

He barks out a laugh before rubbing his neck. “I slept better than I have in years.”

“I doubt that.” I hesitate for a second. “But thank you… for staying.”

“You couldn’t have made me leave even if you wanted to.”


Emery grew up in Southern Arkansas and has lived most of her adult life in Northern Louisiana.

She spends her days working as a Nurse Practitioner in rural health and her nights reading, writing, and occasionally sleeping.

She loves real life romance…lots of angst and heartbreak, but always a happy ending.

🔖 REVIEW 🔖 The Exiled Prince by Jeana E. Mann

The Exiled Prince by Jeana E. Mann

Release Date: June 18th 2018 by Ishkadiddle Publishing, LLC
Pages: 258
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

A secret masquerade hookup leads to complications with Rourke’s new boss. 

Rourke: As a celebrity personal assistant, I pride myself on professionalism. When a mysterious stranger offers to show me the wonders of a clandestine club at the masked ball, I jump at the chance. Because no one will know me, right? One night. No names. No faces. It should have ended there. I had no idea that the handsome, enigmatic man would turn out to be my new employer. 

Roman: After the masquerade, I searched for the girl who’d crashed my party, only to find her in my office a few months later. I can’t fire her because she’s the best assistant I’ve ever had, but I can’t stop wanting her in my bed either. 

***This book was formerly released as part of the Bad Boy Billionaire Bachelors Boxset and can be read as a standalone.

The Exiled Prince
The Dirty Princess
The War King

My Review:

Having read and enjoyed The Rebel Queen Duet, I just knew that I had to read Rourke’s story after and it didn’t disappoint at all. The Exiled Prince is the perfect steamy and swoon worthy romance that will hook you from beginning to end.

At the beginning we are introduce to Rourke Donahue, a twenty-six year old personal assistant to her best friend, Every. Having known each other for so long, she is sad to part ways so that her friend can move to the other side of the world with her new husband. This leaves Rourke with a lot of uncertainty as she will have to move out on her own and start a new life. On their last night together, Everly invites her to a masquerade ball, but without an invitation Rourke is ready to crash the exclusive event.

The ball is supposed to be a way for people to be themselves and the use of their real names is again the rules. With one night to herself, she decides to let go of any insecurities and be herself. She dances the night away and she attracts the attention of a mysterious men. She hard heard of Prince Menshikov and has been wanting to see him in person, and her mysterious guy might just be the exiled prince. Yet, without names it is hard to tell who he is, but she is ready to just be and they end up hooking up. Rourke decides to leave that night in the past and when she goes home. With absolutely no luck when it comes to finding a job, she gets referred to the Blue Sapphire Group who happen to need an assistant for the head of the company. Little did she know that her boss would turn out to be her mysterious man. Now Rourke has to decide if she wants to leave their night in the past or fight for a future with him.

Roman Menshikov has the money and the status to get him any woman he could possibly want. Yet, after the masquerade ball he couldn’t stop thinking about his mysterious stranger and has since then searched for her without any luck. No one has ever gone against his word like her and he wants to make her his no matter what. But he has been kept busy with his work and ex that has made him frustrated. His assistants have all quit and he can’t keep going through them all the time. So he is surprised to see a new assistant at his beck and call. Though he is too busy ordering her around, he comes to an abrupt awakening when he figures out that his mysterious girl has been working for him all along. Roman knows that he has pissed her off and wants to make things right with her. But she is his employee and there are too many secrets that could threaten a future with her if he doesn’t do anything about them.

I absolutely loved reading The Exiled Prince! Jeana E. Mann did a great job creating a story full of lust and passion between the characters. It was truly electrifying! I found myself loving Roman, he is a truly a guy any girl would want to be with. He is protective, yet caring at the same time. On the other hand, Rourke is feisty and courageous. She is not afraid to speak her mind and I loved that about her. They are opposites who attract and their chemistry is sizzling. There are a lot of things that the characters go through in the book and they grew as the story progressed. They had to trust and rely on each other in order to have a future together. Rourke sees what kind of man Roman is and she has truly met her match. The ending was sweet, though there are things that could have been explained a little bit more. I’m happy to see that there is a new book in the trilogy. I would highly recommend checking out this book and any other by the author, you will not regret it! :)

🌟 RELEASE BLITZ 🌟 Trying to Score by Kendall Ryan {REVIEW}

Trying to Score by Kendall Ryan

Release Date: November 12th 2019 by Amazon Digital Services
Series: Hot Jocks #3
Pages: 284
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

Teddy King excels at many things. Playing hockey. Check. Scoring on and off the ice. Check. Being stupidly attractive ... Double check. 

I knew him way back when. Before he was the guy everyone wanted a piece of, he was just a rebellious college co-ed and one of my more energetic study partners. 

But secrets have a way of getting out, and a steamy encounter from our college days (that we probably shouldn't have filmed) is about to cause a major scandal. Unless we can work together to stop it. 

Teddy’s no stranger to hard work … but the thing he wants most?

Is me. 

Note: This high-heat standalone is chock-full of scorching banter and steamy good times. He's a testosterone-dripping hockey player who wants a second chance. She's a tough as nails attorney intent on making partner. Loads of hot banter. No cliffhanger. Enjoy! 

Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all new stand-alone novel. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series of athlete romances is perfect for you!

(Books can be enjoyed in any order.)

My Review:

Having read and enjoyed the previous book in the Hot Jocks series, I couldn’t wait to read Teddy’s story and it did not disappoint. This second chance sports romance story will have you swooning and rooting for the characters until the very end.

At the beginning of the story we get to meet Sara Dawson, an attorney who has worked so hard to get to where she is in life. She has put her career first for so long and she is getting close to making partner at Carroll and Associates. But on her day off she attends a charity function put on by the nonprofit her friend Aubree works for. The charity will auction off some of the Ice Hawks players for the evening and she is ready to have company for the night. Yet, she wasn’t expecting to bid on possibly one of the hottest hockey players, Teddy King, after he asks for her help before it’s too late. Turns out that their steamy encounter back in college that they once filmed is about to come out and possible destroy their careers if they don’t work together to stop it from getting released. Little did she know that the encounter would bring them back together again and the more time she spend with him, the more she wants to keep him forever.

Teddy King has it all, the career and looks to him any woman he could possibly have. But he can’t stop thinking about Sara and what they used to have back in college. Now he is a famous hockey player and she is a kick-ass attorney that always has something to say about him. They choose to leave their past behind, until he gets an email that would change their lives forever. It’s now more than ever that they have to work together in oder to stop their video from getting out and he will not stop until he makes her his.

I absolutely loved reading this book! Ryan did a great job with the characters and the story as a whole. Sara is a tough attorney who wants to move up in her career and has left her without a partner like her friends have. She sees how happy they are and wonders if she can have that too, but her career will always come first. On the other hand, Teddy may be womanizer but he has kind heart. He has looked after his grandfather for a while and he will have to decide if being apart from him is worth it just so that he is closer to Sara. It’s evident that they both want a future together, now they’ll have to figure out how to get one before it’s too late. Loved their chemistry and the ending was great too. I cannot wait to read what’s next in the series! Highly recommend checking it out. :)

🔖 RELEASE BLAST! 🔖 Love You Now by M. Robinson {REVIEW}

Love You Now by M. Robinson

Release Date: November 12th 2019
Pages: 235
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

I should have told her everything.

How much I loved her.
How much I’ve always loved her.
But I didn’t.
I couldn’t.
I just wasn’t made that way.

Instead... I claimed her.
Teased her.
Taunted her.
Worshipped her.
Until... I broke her.

My best friend.
My savior.
My girl.

From my mind to my heart, to every single bone in my body.
She owned me.
I was hers.

Every look.
Every kiss.
Every touch.
Every tear.

It was always her.

The only thing I feared more than losing her was forgetting her.
I hated how much I needed her.

She was mine.
Always and forever.

I hated her then.

But Harley Jameson was about to find out how much…

I LOVED her now.

My Review:

Love You Now is the second book in the Love Hurts Duet by M. Robinson. It follows Jackson and Harley’s journey right where we left off in Hated You Then. We met them as kids, who go through ups and downs. Now we get to see them grow as they go through a journey of discovery and love. Their lives are not easy, but if there is anything that remains constant is the banter between them. They have fought and teased to no end, and yet there are so many lies between them keeping them from having a future together. Neither one saw the events that transpired to happen, but it would lead to them finding their way to each other.

Told in dual POV, Love You Now had me at the edge of my seat from beginning to end. It was such a rollercoaster of emotions that I did not see the twist coming at all. It completely changed the lives of the characters and the direction of the story itself. They both have to face the past and forgive each other in order to move on. Now I did find myself getting a bit frustrated with the characters at the beginning, but the story got so much better. I do wish the author could have ended the story without having the twist at the end (which I’m sure we’ll learn more about it in the next book or series). It was still a sweet ending, one not to be missed! I would highly recommend checking out the duet and I cannot wait to read more from the author in the future. ;)

**I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review**

My Rating: 4.5/5
