The Naked Fisherman (Fisherman #1) by Jewel E. Ann

USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, Jewel E. Ann returns with an addictive new adult romance about a young woman who discovers years of Sunday sermons didn’t prepare her for the many lessons of the crude and sexy man who is now her boss.

It’s official.

I’m eighteen and a young woman with endless possibilities on my way to reunite with my mom in Colorado after five years apart—she had a little weed incident in Nebraska.

At the airport, she springs the news on me … she’s leaving for a month of job training. And me? I’m left on my own in the basement she’s renting from the fisherman, aka her landlord who lives upstairs.

He’s ten years older than me. Never wears a shirt. And makes it hard to remember all the things I learned at Christian Academy.

Did I mention he’s also my new boss?

Tagging Up (Callahan Family Book 5) by Carrie Aarons

All Anna Callahan wants is her independence.

Being the youngest member of her immediate family, and massive network of cousins, she’s always been sheltered. That ends now. After graduating with her masters in nursing, she’s ready to move out of her parents’ house, whether they support that decision or not. While wallowing in the guilt of that choice at the local bar, she bumps into the one guy she shouldn’t go near.

A player for her family’s team and her cousin’s best friend, Clark should come with a warning label. Not only because he’s the league’s number one playboy, but because he’s significantly older than her.

Unfortunately, they can’t seem to keep their hands off of each other. That initial night together leads to scorching glances across public parties, secret hookups in hidden places, and way more than either of their hearts bargained for.

But being with Clark means lying to those closest to them. When their secret is finally discovered, it sends the already skittish bad boy running for the hills. And although she claimed to want freedom with no strings, Anna can’t help but feel the sharp pull to be with him forever.

Clark Nyle swore a long time ago he’d never be committed to anyone.

After watching his mother ruin his father through adultery and abandonment, he knows that love is for masochists and he certainly isn’t one. Baseball and living life like every day’s a party are his only two passions.

Then his father dies, and he’s forced to question everything. It leads to a barstool, too many drinks, and into the backseat of his car with the one woman he should never have touched.

Now that he’s gotten a taste of Anna, he can’t stay away. Even if their secret affair comes with way too many consequences. Her family owns the team he plays for, not to mention his best friend would cut off his balls if he knew what they were up to. Plus, he doesn’t want anything long-term, and eventually he’s going to break her heart.

But the more time he spends with her, the more he seems to want a different future than the one he always planned on. Until they’re found out, and he’s forced to choose between his demons and the disapproval of his closest friends … or her.

Books & Bullets (Watchdog Protection, Inc. Book 3) by Cameron Hart

The strong silent type might just be what she needs.

Raven: As one of the librarians at the Chicago public library, I’m used to the quiet. I’ve always loved books. The smell of them, the million different places they can transport you to, and the way they always seem to have the right words.

The man of few words falls for the girl who loves to get lost in them.

Slater: I’ve searched for redemption every day of the last three years. Visions of the roadside bomb that jacked me up and killed everyone else in the vehicle haunt me in my sleep. Why did I live when so many others died?

All I’ve ever wanted is to be someone’s knight in shining armor. That’s I joined the military and why I eventually agreed to start Watchdog Security, Inc with my ex-military buddies.

When I’m assigned to guard the library, I expect it to be the most boring job of my life. Until I spot Raven.

Can Slater protect his woman and finally find the words to tell her how he feels?

What to expect from a Cameron Hart book: Lots of heat, plenty of sweet, and just enough drama to keep things interesting. No cheating, safe, guaranteed HEA!

Property Of The Mountain Man (Montana Mountain Men #1) by Gemma Weir

Tall, dark and muscled like a god, Beau Barnett is great with an axe. Every woman in Rockhead Point wants a taste of the mountain man. Including me. Except he doesn’t even know my name. I’m just the girl behind the counter filling his coffee, while he grunts and grumbles, barely making eye contact. Then a newcomer with a charming smile and a fancy suit shows up in Rockhead Point, and refuses to take no for an answer when he asks me to dinner. That’s when I find out Mr. Mountain Man not only knows my name… he thinks I’m his property.

This book has been chosen for our August BABE 2023 book club. If by chance you want to attend or read along with us, here the link to our group. Each month we do a live chat discussing the selected books.

I am really conflicted about how to review this book. Since I know this is fiction, I loved and had fun reading this one. Real life scenario involved? Wow.. Caveman at it’s best. You think Edward Cullen was a stalkish guy? Wait until you meet Beau.

Bonnie is 21 and has been crushing hard on Beau Barnett since she was a kid. The fact that he’s twice his age didn’t help much. He’s always at her workplace having coffee early on in the morning and waiting for her closing hours. One year of him doing this, but never chatting, has made Bonnie consider him untouchable.

Everything changes when she flirts with a stranger. That’s when Beau sees he needs Bonnie to be his. She’s too young but he needs to lay claim on her because she is what he wants.

But holy bananas, Bonnie is fighting his dominance because she wants her independence and isn’t welcoming his caveman ways.

So yeah… fun read but disregard real life.. the title says it all.. Property of the mountain man. You get exactly what you signed up for.

Finn Sanderson.

Sports agent extraordinaire. Handsome as hell. The man who just signed on to control my every move.

Sure, I’m to blame for my recent bad press, but when your whole life has been so regimented, isn’t it normal to want to live it up a little?

But when the partying stops and the grief I’m running from has nowhere else to hide, reality sets in. Turns out, Finn’s the only person I have left to help pick up the pieces. The only person to call.

Staying with him is a temporary thing. But when our fighting turns into laughter and our friendship turns into something more, will I fight for a man who swears he’s hard to love? Or is it wiser to walk away? To follow the plan?

* * *
Offering to help with a client is a way to repay a long overdue IOU to my mentor. Little did I know she was the woman who left my hotel room at four in the morning.

Stevie Lancaster.

Top-seeded US tennis player. Good girl gone bad. The woman currently about to throw her career away. And now my problem.

The compensation to “babysit” her is great, but she isn’t worth my trouble.

But when her world falls apart and she has no one else to turn to, I try to be a good guy by gathering her up and hiding her from the media’s eye.

Now she’s in my house, in my space, and even though I’m enjoying the side benefits of this unexpected arrangement, surely she’s better to leave when the time comes and follow her destiny. Because I’m not the man she needs. Not the man she could love. Right?

Are you ready to fall for the Kincade sisters and then men who love them in K. Bromberg’s sexy, contemporary, sports romance series? These books can all be read as standalones, but you’ll enjoy reading them as a series!

Aleatory by Xavier Neal

Aleatory.

As in ey-lee-uh-tawr-ee.

As in an adjective.

As in a synonym for unpredictable.

As in the only word to describe making the mistake of falling for someone who is not only ten years younger than you, but your best friend’s son…

Hana’s Review

5 stars
Reverse Age Gap
Best Friend’s Son

Xavier Neal is quickly becoming one of those one-click/auto-read authors for me. Everything I’ve read, I’ve loved. And Aleatory is no exception.

Aleatory is a steamy reverse age-gap/best friend’s son romance. It is so well-written – the heroine’s banter is so witty and funny! The secondary characters and their relationships create a fully realized world you feel immersed in.

Sloan is a very successful writer and businesswoman who needs a break from life for a moment. She reaches out to her best friend, Cora and escapes to an adorable small town in Michigan. There she meets Nix, Cora’s son, and sparks fly.

Nix, at 26, is ten years younger than Sloan and though Sloan knows that’s a problem – as is the fact that he’s her best friend’s son! – chemistry can’t be helped. It did take me a minute to like Nix, I won’t lie. There were moments that he was so young, immature and I just wanted to smack him around. But Sloan set him straight and took no shit.

I loved the relationship between Sloan and Cora, and I adored Cora and her husband, Carl. Honestly, these secondary characters really helped build the story and the feel of the book. Also, I felt like I could really relate, on some level, to all the characters. The way they speak, their reactions – they felt real and honest.

I enjoyed the steaminess of this book and loved the plot and writing. I adore Neal’s stories and will continue to read them as fast as she can publish them.

The IT Guy (Chesapeake Shores Book 1) by Andi Burns

Elaine

I love my job, I love my house, and I love my cat. What else do I need out of life? Hmmm…maybe the hot new IT guy from work. Those dimples…And don’t get me started on his forearms.
But he’s way too young. Plus, office romance is never a good idea. Besides, my relationship track record is pitiful and the last thing I need is to get my heart broken again. So Simon Walker can take his charm, his Star Wars sheets, and his genius IQ and sweet talk some sweet young thing.

Simon

Elaine Madigan is easily the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met. Hilarious. Sexy. Smart. And unfortunately, she’s also convinced herself that I’m way too young for, so she’s friend-zoned me.

Somehow I need to show her how grown up I really am. I need her to see that I’m ready to settle down–with her. It’s no easy task, but that doesn’t scare me. After all, I’m a techie, and cracking codes is what I do. No matter what it takes, I’ll hack the code to her heart.

The IT Guy by Andi Burns is a dual POV standalone work romance with a younger hero, office hijinks, lots of laughs, and plenty of steam.

Reckless Recluse (Cocky Hero Club) by Lia Fairchild

Mia

An island fling was the last thing I expected when I agreed to spend a month on a tropical island with Graham and Soraya as nanny to their sweet little boy. I was planning to relax with the family, enjoy the sun, and get a break from law school…

Then a shirtless, tanned Adonis runs onto our beach and into my life.

JT is mysterious, rugged, and his gruff exterior should have sent me running in the opposite direction. But something about the man excites me, challenges me to push past my insecurities. And though I don’t see myself as a “fling” kind of girl, maybe it’s just what I need to move on from my painful past. The trouble is JT has quickly imprinted himself on my soul, and saying goodbye to him is going to break me.

JT

Going back to the island, the only place I felt like myself, was a no-brainer. Not just somewhere to seek refuge from business, family, and especially women. It’s a place of serenity…to clear my head and get rid of the anger of betrayal and figure out what I want to do with my life.

Then Mia happens, forcing her way into my heart. Like a violent storm that rushes in, wreaking havoc but ultimately ushering in a new dawn. She sees things in me I never knew existed. But our worlds are spinning in different directions, and no matter how badly I want to hang on, the force pulling us apart might just be too strong for both of us.

Out of Bounds (Atlanta Rising Football Club #1) by Claire Hastings

Welcome to the Atlanta Rising Football Club, where the temperature isn’t the only thing turning up the heat…

Felicity Sutherland knows what people think of her. She just doesn’t care. Her attitude is her armor, and it hasn’t failed her yet. Thick skin and working hard in the male-dominated sports industry placed her dream job within reach. And as she vies to become president of the Atlanta Rising Football Club, there isn’t a competitor, or a distractingly handsome co-worker, that can get in her way.

The only games Gunnar Gracin has time for are the ones he coaches on the pitch. But life just keeps bending the ball, especially where the women in his life are concerned. The death of his wife over a decade ago was a devastating loss. Discovering an adult daughter from an encounter he doesn’t remember changed all the rules. And working for the frosty, sharp-tongued Felicity is downright infuriating.

But as Gunnar and Felicity spend more time together, the tension between them sizzles like a hot summer night. And the moment Gunnar gets a taste of Felicity’s smart mouth, he decides to throw the playbook out the window. If no one knows what they’re up to, giving in to temptation doesn’t feel so out of bounds. That is, until life gets in the way and the whistle is blown. Will it be a red card for Gunnar and Felicity’s secret romance?

Out of Bounds is a standalone enemies-to-lovers, age gap contemporary romance. Enjoy it on its own, or as part of the series, with no cheating and a guaranteed HEA!
