        Blurb:   Looking for a Fake Fiancé Have you ever wanted to prove someone wrong so badly that you could taste it? It doesn’t matter if they’re right. The fact that they had the audacity to say it is what counts. Hi. It’s me. I’m that person. The man I’ve been casually seeing told me I’m not “wife material” and should “lower my expectations”. Didn’t he realize I lowered them the moment I met him for dinner? Obviously not. Am I petty? Maybe. Annoyed? Of course. Determined? Definitely. I need someone to help me flaunt my new engagement—my fiancé couldn’t wait to pop the question because I’m that amazing—in his face. The problem? I don’t have a boyfriend, let alone a husband-to-be. Which brings us to you. Are you handsome? Successful? A smooth talker extraordinaire? Are you willing to do all the things that someone madly in love would do? Putting your hand on the small of my back. Forehead kissing. Acting like I’m a treasure you can’t live without. I need you to be prepared to do all those things … and maybe more. What do you get out of this? I’m willing to negotiate terms—especially if they include a job and a place to stay. It’s a long story. One night. One event. Let’s put on one heck of a show. From USA Today and Amazon Charts Bestselling author comes a “hot and hilarious!” fake-dating tale between two frenemies that turn into roommates, coworkers, and, ultimately, lovers. Fans of close proximity, one-bed trope, and blue-collar, small-town heroes will fall madly in love with this story.           About the Author: USA Today Bestselling author, Adriana Locke, writes contemporary romances about the two things she knows best—big families and small towns.

My Review
5 Stars
Flaunt by Adriana Locke is the fourth book in the Carmichael Family Series.  This is the story of Sara and Banks. This is a interconnecting series but it can be a standalone book.  Sara hasn't had it easy and that has made her doubt that someone would love her forever. In addition she tries to follow the rules/plans she has. Banks is the brother in law of one of her friends. Banks is totally opposite of her which of course causes friction between them at first.  The sparks start to fly.  Enjoyed their story.

Corrupting the Innocent by P. Rayne


Corrupting the Innocent by P. Rayne is now live!

Sofia Moretti

For years, I’ve harbored a secret love for my best friend’s older brother. Yet, he’s never shown any sign of sharing my feelings.

My fantasies will remain just that though—fantasies. For two reasons. The first being he’s arranged to marry the cunning and cold-hearted, Aurora Salucci. The second being that Antonio always does what his duty demands, and if his father wants him married to Aurora, he’ll marry her.

Now, I’m forced to watch her parade him all over the Sicuro Academy, our private college for mafia children, as my feelings of loneliness grow.

I do my best to push Antonio from my mind and when another man shows me interest, I hope he’ll help me move on from the man that will never be mine.

Turns out it doesn’t quite work that way though.

Antonio La Rosa

My life has been a series of duties—to the mafia, to my father, but never to myself.

That’s why my father arranged my engagement to Aurora Salucci. We’re a good match as far as mafia politics go but it leaves a lot to be desired for me. She’s nothing I’ve ever wanted in a wife with her hard edges and being about as malleable as granite.

Then there’s Sofia Moretti, my little sister’s best friend. I never looked at her with anything other than sisterly affection, until recently.

Now, she consumes my every thought. My every desire.

Her innocence beckons me, and I yearn to be the one who taints it.

But I have a duty. And that duty means prioritizing my family’s needs above my own.

And right now, the family needs me to uncover the traitor plotting against us. Little do I know, the enemy is closer than I ever imagined.

Corrupting the Innocent by P. Rayne is book Two in the Mafia Academy Series.  This is the story of Sofia Moretti and Antonio La Rosa. Sofia is best friends with Mira and Antonio is Maria brother. Sofia has always had a crush on Antonio since she was little but Antonio only sees her as a little friend of his sister.  In their present day Antonio is engaged to marry Aurora (Not a nice person) who he doesn't love but is doing a marriage to build family ties.  Sofia knows this and with it that her love will go no where.  But, Antonio is starting to see Sofia in a different light which is showing him the women she has become.  Loving this series and I highly recommend Ms. Payne's writing.

My Review
5 Stars
Fallen Knight by T.K. Leigh is book Two in the Broken Crown Trilogy. This continues the story of Esme and Creed. So, you will need to read book 1 'Royal Creed' before reading this one. This book picks up several years after the first book with Esme having a new life after the fall out from Creed but then they are having to face each other again. This book does end with a cliffhanger setting us up for more in their story.

Rigger's Mistake by Misty Walker


Title: Rigger's Mistake
A Dark Stepbrother Romance
Series: Sons of Erebus: Reno, NV #1
Author: Misty Walker
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Tropes: Forbidden/Stepbrother/MC Romance
Release Date: June 5, 2023


From USA Today bestselling author Misty Walker comes a dark stepbrother MC romance.

I spent the first sixteen years of my life being told I was nothing, and I would’ve kept believing it if she hadn’t come around.

We were a family, and for two whole years, it was us against the world. I kept her safe from the devil, and she kept a hold on my will to live.

Then the day came when I had to leave her behind. It nearly killed me, and I’m sure she still hates me for it, but I had no choice. The devil demanded it.

Armed with the confidence she gave me, I started a new life. Thirteen years later, I’m the VP of the Sons of Erebus, launching a luxury brothel that’ll make my club some serious coin and give us the future we deserve.

I never forgot her, but I didn’t go looking either.

And I sure as hell never expected to see her walking through the doors at The Honey Pot Ranch looking for a job. But when our eyes meet, I know.

It’s her.

The little girl from my past is all grown up. Her mile-long legs, blonde hair, and skimpy outfit clinging to her tight body have me feeling things I shouldn’t.

When I realize why she’s here, fury burns through me.

My stepsister will not be spreading her legs for anyone but me.

And most importantly, my son’s father. Except, he wasn’t aware of that little fact. To the media, Byron Ashford is a Billionaire King. To me, he’s a reminder of the hottest, most forbidden, night of my life. And my biggest mistake. I hadn’t seen him in years and hoped we’d never cross paths again. But then, my best-laid plans always seem to go astray. Now, I need his help to bail me out of trouble. He’s a billionaire and I’m just a broke, debt-riddled surgeon. Against my better judgment, I sought him out. It should have been easy, in and out. Except, nothing with Byron Ashford was ever easy. He refuses to hand out free favors. And the price for his help? My freedom. Literally. He wants to shackle me to him with a marriage I don’t want then throw away the key. His demands are scandalous. His rules are dangerous for my heart. It was supposed to be a mutually beneficial deal, but nothing about Byron is ever that simple. Once he slips the ring onto my finger, the rules change. His demands grow. He no longer just wants to own my body. He also wants my heart and soul. But I’m not that young, naive woman anymore. Too bad this billionaire forgot one thing.

Title: The Time is Now
Series: Beautifully Brutal Series
Author: Emma Luna
Genre: Dark Contemporary Romance/Mafia Romance
Tropes: Best Friends to Enemies to Lovers/Forbidden Romance
Release Date: June 1, 2023 

★★★★★ Review from Anna’s Bookshelf - “The Time Is Now is another spectacular novel from one of my all time favorite dark romance authors. Her exceptional storytelling with interesting characters, a unique plot, and fast-paced action & suspense ensnared my attention and kept me on tenterhooks under the very end!”

★★★★★ Goodreads Review - “This was action packed, suspenseful, dramatic, and chemistry filled. A thrilling read with all the right elements. I love this series.”

Growing up as the youngest Doughty meant missing out on a normal life.

I didn’t want the life I was dealt, but I also felt I had no choice except to embrace my legacy. My family had targets placed on their backs, simply because of our name and the power we held, so I knew I had to be ready for anything that came my way.

Being sent to boarding school was a way to protect me—and get me away from the very life I didn’t want—but it also brought me something else.


My brothers took him in, and I chased away the nightmares that came with his tortured past, ignoring the burning desire I knew was there, because I didn’t want to ruin our fast-found friendship.

Now though? He’s severed the very bond I tried so hard to protect in the most brutal betrayal.

He went from being my best friend to my enemy, and now I want answers.

My Review
5 Stars
The Time is Now by Emma Luna is book 4 in the Beautifully Brutal Series.  This is the story of Shane and Ryleigh.  I do think it helps to read the previous books which are interconnecting to fully enjoy this one but you could make it a standalone book.  Shane and Ryleigh had a friendship since they were younger but things happened that pulled them apart.  But, now they are getting their chance at happiness in this book.  Enjoyed.
