SLOW RIDE (SOUTH FLORIDA RIDERS #2)

A sexy running back who needs a nanny for his little boy. A waitress trying to hide from her past. Could she be the one to trust with his most precious possession? Could he be the man who makes her believe in love again? Only if they can take down their walls with the same ease that they take off their clothes. But when this single dad finds out the truth about his charming nanny, their sexy slow ride might come to a crashing halt.

Elliot:

My priorities are pretty clear. Take care of my five-year-old son and run that damn ball. But I can't find a nice, qualified nanny to look after him during the season. So when I help out a dazzling blond with her flat tire and she connects with my kid, hiring her to watch Asher seems like a brilliant move.

It's purely coincidental that Jessica Randall happens to be smoking hot, tons of fun, and every time she puts Asher to bed, I want her to get in mine. But that's off the table, because Asher adores her, and she's the first person to bring my boy out of his shell.

Sleeping with Jessica would be a huge mistake, and falling in love is an even bigger risk. But that just might be a risk worth taking.

Jessica:

Elliot Danes is an NFL star dripping with all the wealth and flash I ran away from when I was a teenager. Since then, I've lived a simple life, as far away from that world as possible. But a simple life means money problems, and a job as a rich guy's nanny would solve all of mine.

His kid's a doll, the job's a breeze, and the income is going to help the only person I love. But the sweet and sexy single dad is one big temptation that I can't resist. So when steamy sex turns into something serious, I've got real problems...

I'm falling in love with Elliot, and I'm crazy about his son, but the truth about my past could break both their hearts.

Liza's Review:

Slow Ride is the second book in the South Florida Riders series from Breezie Bennett, and I have to say I loved it even more than the first book. Seriously, sexy single dad football player who will do anything for his son?!?! I'm all in!!!

I wanted Elliot's story from the moment we met him in Wild Ride. I love he always puts his son Asher at the top of his priority list. Elliot is super protective of his son and needs just the right person to be a live in nanny after his former one moves away to be closer to her own grandchildren. As Asher is super shy and doesn't warm up to strangers very quickly, Elliot was shocked at how fast he connected with Jessica Randall when they pull over to help her with a flat tire, and offers her a job as his son's nanny on the spot.

Jessica is such a strong, independent, and loving woman. She has been on her own since she was 16, with the exception of Maria, who took her in, and is the only person who knows about Jessica's past. Jessica and Maria have become their own little family, and Jessica will do anything to help take care of Maria, even become a nanny so she can afford all the medical bills.

I had mad love for Jessica and how she seemed to just get Asher pretty much from the moment they met. Yes there was major chemistry between Jessica and Elliot, but as she was hired to take care of Asher, their time together was so sweet. Asher was such an important part of this story, and I absolutely fell in love with this little boy right along with Jessica. 

Elliot and Jessica had a mutual attraction from the very beginning, and I loved they took their time before acting on their attraction. I won't lie, I had to laugh out loud at a couple of the times they were interrupted along the way, as it is was so spot on with a young child and just life in general. I love them together so very much. Their chemistry was off the charts hot and yet there were so many tender moments along the way as well. All the happy sighs from me.

Slow Ride was a fun, sexy, and emotional read. I highly recommend Slow Ride to everyone! While this is only the second book from Breezie Bennett, she is the read deal and absolutely is one of my auto-buy authors.

RELEASE BLITZ: TRYING TO SCORE

TRYING TO SCORE
By Kendall Ryan
Release Day: November 12, 2019


About the Book

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

Despite his demanding schedule, he still finds time to annoy me. 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. Frienemies to lovers. 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 is perfect for you!

Liza's Review:

A Very Dare Christmas brings readers back to Ian and Riley Dare, the couple from the very first book in the Dare series, Dare to Love. Fans of the Dare series will absolutely love this visit with Ian and Riley, and new readers to the series will enjoy the sexy novella/short story. Ian is as Alpha as ever, and I love that Riley loves and gets him so well. Ian knows Riley best and knows she needs a break from the crazy family life with 2 small children. I loved this super sexy story with Ian and Riley so very much. A Very Dare Christmas was such a super sexy, fun, and fast-paced story.

Revisiting with Ian and Riley only made me fall in love with this couple all over again, and made me want to re-read the entire Dare series of books. I highly recommend this story to fans of the series as well as new readers of the series.

A Very Dare Christmas was originally sent out in Carly's newsletter, and is now available for digital purchase.

THREE DOG NIGHT (THE DOGMOTHERS #2)

Alex Santorini puts his family first and foremost, and that's going to keep him behind the grill at the family restaurant for the rest of his life, especially if his Greek grandmother has anything to say about it. But when a local winery needs a chef to step in to cook for a celebrity wedding, Alex jumps at the opportunity to showcase his culinary skills...and a chance to get closer to the winery owner who has captivated - and refused - his attention.

Grace Donovan is in a bind and knows that the answer to all her problems is one sexy Greek chef who has everything she needs...and everything that scares the hell out of her. Raised in a series of ever-changing foster homes, Grace has spent her life using science and logic to surround herself with protective walls. With all his passion and intensity, Alex could burn those walls down and, like everyone else in her life, leave her broken and alone.

As Alex and Grace join forces to land the wedding of the year, they also launch a search for the mother of a three puppies abandoned at the winery...only to discover a shocking connection to Grace's own mother and her shadowy past. When the truth comes out, their romance faces its greatest test. Will Grace choose the family she's wanted her whole life...or the love she may never find again?

The Dogmothers #2
South Street Publishing
Contemporary Romance
Review copy provided by publisher

Liza's Review:

Three Dog Night is the second book in the Dogmothers series from Roxanne St. Claire and it hooked me from the very first page. 

Alex Santorini continues to work in his family’s Greek restaurant to honor his father. His dream is to cook more than the family recipes, as he is a professionally trained chef. Grace Donovan bought her vineyard 3 years ago, and is working hard to make it both a successful vineyard and a destination-wedding venue. Just as she is given the opportunity to compete with other vineyards in the area, her chef quits without notice leaving her in a bind. After tasting Alex’s food, she knows working together will help her meet her goal...as long as they can keep things business only.

I loved Alex and Grace so very much!  They each seemed to bring out the best in each other. I absolutely fell in love with them from the beginning and loved their journey. Add in three of the cutest puppies on the face of the planet, and this story hit all my favorite things.

As with any book from Ms. St. Claire, readers will be delighted with family, laughter, love, a few tears, and lots of precious dogs. The romance between Alex and Grace gave me all the happy feels, even as my heart absolutely broke as Grace shared her past. I seriously just wanted to hug Grace as the truth of her family was revealed. 

As with the first book in this series, and the Dogfather series before it, we have matchmaking planned by Gramma Finnie and Yiayia...however they originally had picked Alex’s twin John for Grace. I laughed so hard at Alex stepping up each time John was mentioned. This was such a sweet, funny, and super emotional book. Those Dogmothers are every bit as wonderful at finding mates for their grandchildren as the Dogfather was with finding mates for his kids…even if they stumbled a bit on the path to happily ever after this time. 


Three Dog Night was like book crack for me. I couldn’t put it down and stayed up way later than normal to finish reading it. I felt every emotion right along with the characters and loved all the surprises along the way. I’ve loved all the books in both the Dogfather and Dogmothers series of books, but I seriously think this book is my new favorite book.

Fall in love with Leo and Frankie as their romance slides from fake to forever.

Contemporary/Football Romance

Liza's Review:

Wild Ride is the first book in the South Florida Riders series of books by debut author Breezie Bennett. I absolutely fell in love with Frankie's and Leo's story from page one. The fake fiancé troupe is such a fun troupe when done well, and Ms. Bennett knocked one out of the ballpark with her very first book (totally mixing up my sports metaphors here).

Frankie and Leo are both such fun characters, even if Leo is known as a bit of a bad boy when we first meet him. Because of that situation, his agent decides he needs a fake fiancé and as Frankie works for his agent's company, she is the perfect person for the job. Let me just tell you Frankie is absolutely my favorite character in this book. She is a tomboy who loves sports and can walk the walk and talk the talk. I'm a huge sports fan, and it was fun to read about another woman being so into sports. She is such a smart and laugh out loud funny character. She even invents a drinking game that I know my friends and I would have been all over when we were in college.

Leo is super yummy and all about his football career...until Frankie arrives. I liked their friendship moved naturally to a physical relationship based on mutual attraction. Seriously you could feel their connection from the very beginning, and it only grew stronger with each day they spent together. The sexy times are super sexy in Wild Ride! So much mad love for this story! I literally couldn't put the book down until I was finished reading and stayed up way too late to read it in one night.

Breezie Bennett is a fresh new voice in sports romance, perfectly blending steamy romance and heartfelt humor. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the South Florida Riders series of books!
