This is a meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers showcase a book that they are eagerly waiting for!

Mister Tonight
by Kendall Ryan
Publication Date: June 18, 2018

36151788From New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a standalone romance about a swoony single dad and the new neighbor he falls for.

Last night was the most embarrassing night of my life.

I was THAT girl.

You know, the highly intoxicated chick celebrating her thirtieth with her two best friends—the ones who are happily married. And the more I drank, the more I wanted to do something reckless to celebrate.

By reckless, I meant the sexy and alluring man dressed in a business suit standing near the bar. You know his type—tall, dark, and handsome. I was sure he was out of my league, but I’d had just enough alcohol that things like that no longer seemed to matter. I’m not fat, mind you, but you can tell I like French fries, so there’s that.

He took me home and I enjoyed the hottest birthday sex of my life, well until it came to a screeching, and rather unwelcome halt.

There’s nothing quite like being interrupted mid-ride with a little voice asking:

“What are you doing to my daddy?”

Just kill me now…… or so I thought.

Come to find out the man I rode like a bull at the rodeo is my new landlord.


The minute I read the synopsis of this book, I NEEDED it in my hands. Waiting for has been unbelievably hard especially when that cover is HOT. AS. HELL. There is still about a month left until I can read this and all I can say is that I. WANT. IT. NOW.

Hot Winter Nights (Heartbreaker Bay #6)
by Jill Shalvis
Publication Date: September 25, 2018

36220363Who needs mistletoe?

Most people wouldn’t think of a bad Santa case as the perfect Christmas gift. Then again, Molly Malone, office manager at Hunt Investigations, isn’t most people, and she could really use a distraction from the fantasies she’s been having since spending the night with her very secret crush, Lucas Knight. Nothing happened, not that Lucas knows that–but Molly just wants to enjoy being a little naughty for once . . .

Whiskey and pain meds for almost-healed bullet wounds don’t mix. Lucas needs to remember that next time he’s shot on the job, which may be sooner rather than later if Molly’s brother, Joe, finds out about them. Lucas can’t believe he’s drawing a blank on his (supposedly) passionate tryst with Molly, who’s the hottest, smartest, strongest woman he’s ever known. Strong enough to kick his butt if she discovers he’s been assigned to babysit her on her first case. And hot enough to melt his cold heart this Christmas.


To say that I need this book ASAP is a huge understatement. The fact that I have to wait until SEPTEMBER to read it still hasn’t fully registered in my mind. This series is one of my favorite series of all time and I can’t wait to get my hands on this book. I will say though that serious distraction tactics will be needed so I am not constantly thinking about how long I have to wait for it because that is going to happen.

Then There Was You
by Miranda Liasson
Publication Date: May 29, 2018

36204794Fresh from her residency, Serafina Langdon returns to her hometown to join her father’s general medical practice a year after her fiancé jilted her. More than anything, Sara just wants to move on, but that becomes impossible once she discovers that the man who was responsible for her broken engagement, and who is also her ex-fiance’s best friend, is now the Angel Falls chief of police.

As police chief, Colton Walker is devoted to his small town, and he’s equally determined to avoid its newest resident. He and Sara have always gotten along like oil and water, and since the bachelor party incident, he’s her Enemy #1. But after sharing an unexpected–and unexpectedly hot–kiss, avoiding Sara becomes the last thing he wants to do. She’s not the woman he used to know, and he’s falling for her. But when her ex-fiancé returns to Angel Falls, Colton will have to decide if the woman he’s always fighting with is also worth fighting for.


I read Heart and Sole about 3 years ago and really enjoyed it! When I saw this gorgeous cover and read the synopsis, I knew I had to add this to my TBR pile. Also, I love the heroine and hero’s names. Am I the only one where the hero and heroine’s names can influence whether or not I am interested in reading the book in question? I feel like that is such a trivial detail but when I’m feeling the names of the characters I like the book so much more.

Down With Love (Love Wars #1)
by Kate Meader
Publication Date: August 7th, 2018

UnknownSparks fly when the hot-shot divorce lawyer meets the high-powered wedding planner. The only question is, what kind?

If you ever get married, remember my name: Max Henderson. In my line of work, you acquire a certain perspective on supposedly everlasting unions. . . .

1. Pre-nups are your friend.
2. The person you married is not the person you’re divorcing.
3. And I hope you didn’t spend much on the wedding because that was one helluva waste of hard-earned cash, wasn’t it?

But some guys are willing to take a chance. Like my brother, who thinks he’s going to ride off into the sunset with the woman of his dreams in a haze of glitter on unicorns. And the wedding planner—the green-eyed beauty who makes a living convincing suckers to shell out thousands of dollars on centerpieces—is raking it in on this matrimonial monstrosity.

The thing is, Charlie Love is not unlike me. We’re both cogs in the wedding-industrial complex. As the best man, I know her game—and I can play it better than her. But after one scorching, unexpected kiss, I’m thinking I might just want to get played.


How did I not know that Kate Meader was coming out with another book this year besides the ones in her Chicago Rebels series!?!!? AND, it is the first book in a new series involving cynical divorce lawyers. UMMM, YES PLEASE!! 2018 just keeps getting better and better lol.

Brooklynaire
by Sarina Bowen
Publication Date: February 12, 2018

unnamedA sexy new stand-alone from USA Today bestseller Sarina Bowen

You’d think a billion dollars, a professional hockey team and a six-bedroom mansion on the Promenade would satisfy a guy. You’d be wrong.

For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don’t know when I started waking in the night, craving her. All I know is that one whiff of her perfume ruins my concentration. And her laugh makes me hard.

When Rebecca gets hurt, I step in to help. It’s what friends do. But what friends don’t do is rip off each others’ clothes for a single, wild night together.

Now she’s avoiding me. She says we’re too different, and it can never happen again. So why can’t we keep our hands off each other?


Ummm, I don’t know about you but that cover is GORGEOUS!!! I mean, try looking at that cover and to not have the urge to get your hands on it ASAP because that is literally what happened to me. Now, I haven’t read any of the other books in the Brooklyn Bruisers series (I do own the first one though) but that issue will be resolved as soon as possible because this book will be read by the end of this year.

In Harmony
by Emma Scott
Publication Date: February 13, 2018

UnknownThe root of all madness is an unbearable truth…

At seventeen, Willow Holloway’s life was torn apart. The happy, driven girl is gone, and she is left wracked by post-traumatic stress her body remembers even if she does not. When her father suddenly uproots the family from their posh penthouse in New York City to the tiny town of Harmony, Indiana, Willow becomes more untethered and lost under the weight of her secret. On a whim, she auditions for a part in the community theater’s production of Hamlet and unexpectedly wins the role of Ophelia—the girl who is undone by madness, and her love of Hamlet…

Isaac Pierce is from the ‘wrong side of the tracks.’ The town bad boy. Girls pine for his attention and guys are in awe of him. That he’s an acting prodigy only adds to his charisma. Isaac utterly disappears into his characters; the stage is the only place he feels safe from his own traumatic home life. He wants nothing more than to escape to Broadway or Hollywood, and leave Harmony behind for good.

No one can play Hamlet but Isaac, and when the director pairs him with Willow in acting class, they clash again and again—neither willing to open their hearts to anyone. But clashing leads to breaking, breaking leads to the spilling of terrible secrets, and soon Isaac and Willow find Shakespeare’s words mirroring their lives. When they are cruelly torn apart, neither know how this play will end—with madness and heartache? Or healing, love, and the discovery of who they are truly meant to be.

In Harmony is a standalone NEW ADULT love story, and is intended for readers 18 and up. PLEASE NOTE, this book contains sensitive material such as physical abuse, and the aftermath of sexual assault (off the page). Reader discretion is advised.


Once again, Book Twins Reviews is responsible for putting yet another amazing book on my radar as something to look forward to this year. I have heard absolutely nothing but AMAZING things about Emma Scott and the worse part is that I own more than one of her books and have yet to read one. I know, what a travesty! BUT, I am hoping to change that this year and In Harmony is definitely one I want to get to. Plus, look at that gorgeous cover 😍😍.

Hooked on You (Chicago Rebels #4)
by Kate Meader
Publication Date: May 7th, 2018

The steamy Chicago Rebels series returns with this racy and sassy tale of embittered hearts, second chances, and going for the goal—on and off the ice.

UnknownViolet Vasquez never met her biological father, so learning he left his beloved hockey franchise—the Chicago Rebels—to her is, well, unexpected. Flat broke and close to homeless, Violet is determined to make the most of this sudden opportunity. Except dear old dad set conditions that require she takes part in actually running the team with the half-sisters she barely knows. Working with these two strangers and overseeing a band of hockey-playing lugs is not on her agenda…until she lays eyes on the Rebels captain and knows she has to have him.

Bren St. James has been labeled a lot of things: the Puck Prince, Lord of the Ice, Hell’s Highlander…but it’s the latest tag that’s making headlines: washed-up alcoholic has-been. This season, getting his life back on track and winning the Cup are his only goals. With no time for relationships—except the fractured ones he needs to rebuild with his beautiful daughters—he’s finding it increasingly hard to ignore sexy, all-up-in-his-beard Violet Vasquez. And when he finds himself in need of a nanny just as the playoffs are starting, he’s faced with a temptation he could so easily get hooked on.

For two lost souls, there’s more on the line than just making the best of a bad situation… there might also be a shot at the biggest prize of all: love.


This book currently fills the spot as my most anticipated book of 2018 and I don’t think another book will replace it. Kate Meader was one of my favorite authors that I discovered in 2017 and because of it I have read every book in this series so far. Hockey romances are near and dear to my heart because my brother played hockey most of his life so I basically I grew up in a rink as a result. This series has been so freaking AMAZING and it is this fourth book that I have wanted so badly since first being introduced to these characters. The fact that I have to wait until MAY to get my hands on this book seems cruel at this point but I will be waiting as patiently as I can. Maybe I will read her firefighter romance series to pass the time….
