Finlay Thatcher is a lost soul, guilt-ridden after the death of her twin brother. When Alabama's football coach gives her the opportunity to work for him, she knows it's her chance to move on, even if it means living her brother's dream.

Caden Brooks is Alabama's star quarterback. He's got it all. The attention of adoring fans. A girlfriend who'd do anything to hold on to him. And a future in the pros. He's getting along just fine until Finlay steps into his life, despising him at first sight and pushing his buttons like no other.

Unfortunately for Finlay, and her attempt to keep Caden at arm's length, there's nothing Caden loves more than a challenge. The problem with this challenge is she comes with a secret that has the power to destroy everything.

Excerpt

“You’re awfully quiet this morning.”

My eyes cut to Brooks. His ear buds dangled over his shoulders. I tugged mine out. “Huh?”

“Just wondering what pearls of wisdom you’re gonna bestow upon me today.”

“You need to stop hesitating when you drop back,” I told him, much to his obvious surprise. “Either do it or don’t. Did you see how those guys pummeled you?”

“See it? I was under it.”

“Yeah, well, your offensive line sucks. But you can’t give the defense a chance to get to you. Know where you’re throwing and hit the mark. Your receivers are good. They’ll get there.”

He stared at me, his eyes narrowed slits.

I wiped my face with the small towel I’d draped over the treadmill screen. “Don’t worry, you’ve got potential.”

He laughed disbelievingly. “Potential? I’m the starting quarterback for Alabama.”

Those words—especially leaving his mouth—cut deep. The only reason he was playing was because Cole wasn’t.

“I’ve got more than potential,” he assured me.

“Yeah. You’ve got a massive ego ready to destroy small countries,” I said, my words clipped as I remembered why I despised him so much.

“All great athletes have egos. You’ve got to.”

Wow. My hatred toward him was growing by the second. “And you’re humble.”

He laughed. Didn’t he notice I wasn’t laughing? I hoped to God he didn’t think I was flirting. This was as far from flirting as one could get.

We ran in silence, the pounding of our sneakers on the treadmills mirroring the pounding in my head brought on by his arrogance.

“What’s your deal anyway?”
I glanced over at him. “What’s that supposed to mean?”

“Not many girls know so much about football and wake up at four in the morning to run.”

I scoffed. “Hope you’re not implying I thought you’d be here.”

“I didn’t say that.”

“But you were thinking it.”

He smirked. “You’d be amazed at the lengths girls go to get my attention.”

My eyes flared. “I suppose you think I took some crash course in football, too, just to impress you with all my knowledge.”

“Just saying.”

My face scrunched as I pressed the arrow on the screen to quicken my pace. “Keep dreaming, superstar.”

“Girls have done some whacked out shit.”

My eyes jumped between the wall in front of me and Brooks. “First of all, I’m not about to steal your towel because it has your sweat on it, nor will I be swiping your jockstrap to sell online. We, my friend, are victims of bad timing.”

“Bad timing?”

“Yeah. Anytime you’re in my space, it’s bad,” I assured him.

Genre: Contemporary Romance/Sports Romance
Release Date: December 27, 2016



Blurb

When reformed party girl Haven Callahan is given the reins to daddy’s pro hockey team, she discovers veteran player, Jack Nolan, is the one calling the shots...

Thrust into the role of team owner, Haven strikes a hasty but lucrative trade deal, only to find out her new star forward and the sexy groomsman she hooked up with at a friend’s wedding are one and the same man.

At thirty-two, Jack knows if he’s going to have his chance at the Stanley Cup, it’s now or never. But instead of landing a spot on his dream team, he winds up traded to the last-place Milwaukee Renegades, where he soon finds himself playing to a non-existent fan base in a rundown stadium named after crappy pizza. He’s tempted to hang up his skates, except he’s fought for everything he has and he isn’t about to give up without a fight.

In a sport where men coach, play, and call all the shots, Haven struggles to find her footing. Worse yet, she can’t keep her hands off the team merchandise—Jack. With Jack on the team and on her side, the Renegades are soon playing less like middling beer-leaguers and more like a pro-level hockey club.

But Jack and Haven are hiding a dirty little secret, and if the media discovers they’re melting the ice after hours, it’s game over.

Excerpt


An unguarded smile teased its way to Haven’s lips.

“Thank you.” Jack dropped a soft kiss on her forehead. “But next time, we do it for real.”

“Wh-what do you mean?” she sputtered.

“Don’t get me wrong. That was amazing. You are amazing.” He pressed his mouth to her shoulder, over the spot where her clavicle had been broken. “But that wasn’t real sex.”

He rolled off her and pushed up off the bed.

She thrashed to a sitting position. “You thought that wasn’t real sex?”

The long shaft of his manhood still plump, he tugged his boxer briefs over his hips. “That was porn sex. It looked great, it felt fucking fantastic, but it’s not real sex.”

He’d stunned her to speechlessness. She hadn’t been speechless since she was a troubled teenager craving attention.

“I-I-I don’t understand you.” With the plaintive ring in her voice, she even sounded like that troubled teenager.

His gaze clamped on her face, he moved to the edge of the bed and wrapped his hand around her ankle.

“Real sex is out of control.” His thumb traced circles around her anklebone. “It’s losing your mind and forgetting about everything that doesn’t serve the purpose of getting you off. It’s total surrender.” He kissed the bottom of her foot. Then his hand on her knee gently eased her legs apart. “To me. To your body.” He kissed the soft skin on the inside of her thigh. “To us.”

**CAUTION-------PITCH BLACK READ**

My mother was the Madison Ridge Killer … and I helped her. 

At nine, I was given a new start—a new life. My adoptive parents did everything they could to help me forget my past, and for a while, they succeeded. 

But I was never normal. I never truly forgot all I saw or did.

Now, twenty years later, I work in the billing department for a small city newspaper. And like decades before, not that far away, another serial killer is on the loose. I can still see her. I can still hear my mother coaxing me to slide the bright red lipstick over her beautiful victims' lips. 

But this isn’t her and I’m determined to figure out who it is. I may work behind the scenes at the Rockford Times, but I’m about to get thrown right in the middle of the biggest story our city has ever seen. 

My name is Anna Monroe and I’m full of secrets.

They say you’re not your past. I’m not so sure they’re right.

My Review:

Well Hello Darkness!!  

**Just a warning, this book is totally Black and White…  No Grey matters here** 

You will be drawn in with zero questions asked about what is happening!!!  The details are there, bloody and gory with nothing left out.  An absolute page turner that leaves you wanting more when you finish. 

Although this is a standalone, it is part of a series.  You could stop after reading this BUT…why would you want to do that!

Christian life that her adoptive parents required in order to “change” Anna. 

Detective Braden Casey has found his true love.  Someone who doesn’t care about the long hours he works, being late for dinner, missing out on Church service… There is a Serial Killer case he is working on when he meets Anna.  But when he meets Anna, he is more driven after seeing her the first time, to solve this case.

MY REVIEW: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

"The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.
After the first step, you still have to walk the thousand miles."

And that's a perfect way to describe a communion of souls. With a wedding you took the first step and there's a long long way ahead on this beautiful path of discovering each other while unraveling yourself to the other.
Adam and Diana are walking perpendicular to each other .the ultimate cross at the Intersection Of Interests and yet they can't seem to find a parallel or the Congruence. Their struggle...or rather Diana's struggle is very raw here. She's awakened yet unfulfilled

"He’d asked me to love him when what awakened my love was the very thing that killed his love. There was no path to reconciliation.I was nothing. Nowhere, in the middle of a jump from one world to the next, midair, legs pumping at nothing above the chasm of in-between-ness. Neither-nor-ness. A yawning gape of indecision. A life without an identity."

The chasm between them gets deeper and deeper to the point that it swallows them whole, their love, their personalities, their dignity.
Yes , their dignity. Diana is forced to lose her morals and she gains nothing back.

"Success or failure, I had to find out who I was. I still had to understand what my submissiveness meant. How deep it went. How it could complement or destroy my life."

I could write and write about the beautiful spirit that lives in this story, but I'd like you to discover it for yourself.
There's too many things in this story to take home with you. Each will find their closure or perspective, depending upon your life.
Christine should've been a therapist to carefully turn the leaves of their marriage pages., like an old testament. The pages and the book has always been here but Christine shines a new light on them.
Maybe a slim flashlight with loop in the hidden compartment .;) <-- font="" hawt="" scene="" soooooo="" that="" was="">
I love how Reiss writes the words...linking random things to the turmoil or epiphany within

"The cross made the urine holy !! (What an eye opener )
Like a checkerboard that you always assumed was black on white, but once you saw the possibility that it could be white on black, you couldn’t unsee it. The mind goes back and forth with the opposites, melding them into an agreement of inverses."

I fell in love with the characters and their interaction. Beautiful story...like a hot knisch.....I don't like cold potatos either :)

Meeting Rod, the sexiest biker of Ronacks, distracts her in the most delicious way from the heartache she knows is coming. Because eventually, everyone she loves always ends up leaving her.

Only he can keep her alive.

Excerpt

The light in her eyes turned to concern and puckered her brows. "Are you okay?"

His heart drummed inside of him, and he moistened his lips. Taken aback, he'd never had anyone ask him that question and feel like they honestly wanted to know the answer.

He nodded. "I'm good. A little stiff and sore but good."

Heather shook her head and leaned closer to the table, reaching for his hand. He crossed his arms.

"Don't be like that," she whispered. "I care about you."

"Don't."

Her eyes widened. "Don't care?"

"Shit is going on, Heather. You look out for yourself and stay away from me." His rapid heartbeat made his chest hurt, and he forced a deeper breath inside of him. "I shouldn't have played around with you. You're a good woman."

"And, what? You're a bad man?" Heather smirked. "Give that story to someone else. Whatever is going on with you has everything to do with you being attacked. It's not about how I enjoy your company, and you've shown me you're interested."

"Like I said, you're a good—"

"I am." She stood from the table, stepped toward him, and bent down. "You're also good. That doesn't mean I'll let you act like an asshole toward me. Go home, get some rest, and for God's sake, take care of yourself."

She kissed the top of his head, shocking him. All he could do was sit there and watch her walk up to the group of women across the room and join their conversation. She'd spoken words as if ordering him around and yet delivered them softly he could still feel the vibration of warmth she'd left behind in his chest. That feeling had him feeling better than he'd felt since he got his ass handed to him.

Heather leaned forward. Her hard, round ass pressed tight against her jeans. He stretched his leg out, leaned back in the chair, and wondered if Heather was aware of him ogling her. She shifted her hips side to side and then straightened, tilting back her head, and drinking from a bottle of beer.

Not from a glass, which Gia preferred.

Not a mixed drink, which Jana consumed.

No, Heather wrapped her slim fingers around the cold bottle and drank as if she enjoyed simply putting her lips on the glass.

Rod brushed the back of his hand across his lips. He'd taken things slow and gotten to know her without putting any demands on her and had enjoyed every fucking minute of frustration.

He hadn't planned a relationship with Heather. It happened the moment she'd stepped forward without stepping back and decked him in the mouth. Her strength surprised the shit out of him. Most people backed away.

Drawn to that strength, he discovered pure softness. It wasn't easy to get behind the layer of safety she carried herself. Short on sharing and hesitant of his intentions, she'd slowly let down her guard until he was afraid of hurting her. Hurting Swiss. Hurting the club.

If he were a good man, he'd have her in his bed every night and keep her to himself because he hated the thought of one of his MC brothers having her. But even Heather could see he was an asshole at heart.

He had to be.

Because he was one.

He shook his head, looked away from the woman who made him forget and stood. It was time to get out of here and go find the person after him. He never once believed the attack was a random hit.

He wasn't that lucky.
