The Bromance Zone by Lauren Blakely

Two great friends. One road trip. And eight inches…
…of snow that night at the cabin.
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. Friends don’t bang friends. I want my friends to stay in my life, especially that flirty, clever, outgoing best friend of mine. It’s a damn good thing Owen and I made a pact in college to never ever sleep together, or else I’d be tempted. Trouble is, eight years later I’ve been wondering what his kisses taste like. And I’ve been curious if our chemistry would extend into the bedroom. If he might feel the same risky pull. But I don’t want to lose Owen, and history says there’s no way a tryst between friends can end well. So as long as I avoid the bedroom with him, I won’t break that hard-as-steel rule.
Except the snow has other plans…
The Bromance Zone is a deliciously flirty, red-hot sexy, friends-to-lovers MM romance about the charming guy next door who’s sworn to never date a friend, the flirty hot nerd who’s been secretly crushing on that friend forever, and one night snowed in in a cabin. This book comes fully equipped for your reading pleasure with sexy banter, a super awkward dinner party, and a scene in front of a fireplace that proves just how dangerous the friend zone is.

They say love is blind. But Dane and Cami are the ones with the vision problems, because everyone else can see what’s growing between these two. And it isn’t the friendship they keep claiming.

I just have to figure out why I spend every night dreaming about my best friend, Dane.

These two proclaim they’re just friends loud and proud, despite what everyone around them thinks. Until suddenly, friendship isn’t enough, and Dane and Cami see what’s been right in front of them. But when Cami’s troubles gets out of hand, will her fighting nature and Dane’s protective streak be enough to protect her from Travis.

Author’s note:

While this is a work of fiction, unfortunately, her choices and the motivation behind them are experienced every day by abused women. Please have compassion and empathy when you read instead of judgment and criticism for her choices. But also remember, this is romance. HEA is guaranteed

Hana’s Review

4.25 stars
Rockstar romance
Friends to lovers

When I found “Bed of Nails”, I realized that I hadn’t read the first book in the #sonsofsin series so I started with “Goodbye is a Second Chance” and fell in love with all the Sons of Sin and with Nola Marie’s writing. If you haven’t read that yet, start there but then you’ll definitely need to read Dane and Cami’ story in “Bed of Nails”.

This found family is amazing – the men of the band are incredibly supportive and you can feel that they care and worry about each other. But Dane – Dane is something else. If you’re part of Dane’s circle, consider yourself loved, cared for, worried about and completely accepted. The incredible friendship that we see develop between Dane and Cami, that starts in the first book, is amazing. You can tell that there are sparks and feelings but the genuine nature of their best friendship is really incredible in and of itself. And you cannot imagine that it won’t blossom further. But Cami is in love and in a relationship, so you think maybe they’ll just be amazing friends?

What we come to find is that Cami is struggling in her relationship. She’s in an abusive relationship and we watch her, Dane and their friends and family try to navigate their way through it all and find their way to each other. They start to realize that best friends can become an incredible relationship and that their love was always there.

Cami’s strength and love – for family, for friends, for Dane – is tangible and real. Dane’s protective nature, caring attitude and sexiness leaps from the page. The story is well written and pulls you in.

You become invested not only in them but also in other characters in their world. You also have allusions to previous stories – ones I haven’t read but that I so desperately want to read now! I’m ready to know more, to read them all and can’t wait for the next books in the series.

Revengeful Romeo by Ashley Bostock

Money doesn’t buy happiness.

Trust me, I’ve had it all my life and I have nothing.

No love. No joy. No pizzaz.

To make matters worse, my parents are pushing me to marry someone who doesn’t even give me orgasms.

Yes, it took me awhile to figure out that I needed to stand up for myself.

Which is why I was on my way to NYC—boyfriendless and out on my own for the very first time in my life.

Except when I got there, I ran in to someone I wasn’t expecting.

Holden King aka my new boss. I was hired to work directly beneath him.

Did I mention he was my ex-best friend who left me without a backward glance when I was sixteen?

I never thought I would see him again.

I tried quitting. Oh, God, how I tried. Even though I officially gave him up seven years ago, it was like he was already back in my heart.

Plus, he fueled my desire to live for myself. Hello, bucket list. It was back in business.

Only, Holden King was never crossed off my bucket list. He was still there, written in black ink, enclosed with tiny red hearts.

It was clear he had completed his bucket list.

Own a corporation. Check.
Billionaire. Check
Lamborghini. Check.

Only he added something to that list that I never would have dreamed about in a million years.

Revenge against my dad. Almost check.

Yeah, that was the part I didn’t see coming.

Hook, Line, and Sinker (It Happened One Summer #2) by Tessa Bailey

In the follow-up to It Happened One Summer, Tessa Bailey delivers another deliciously fun rom-com about a former player who accidentally falls for his best friend while trying to help her land a different man…

King crab fisherman Fox Thornton has a reputation as a sexy, carefree flirt. Everyone knows he’s a guaranteed good time—in bed and out—and that’s exactly how he prefers it. Until he meets Hannah Bellinger. She’s immune to his charm and looks, but she seems to enjoy his… personality? And wants to be friends? Bizarre. But he likes her too much to risk a fling, so platonic pals it is.

Now, Hannah’s in town for work, crashing in Fox’s spare bedroom. She knows he’s a notorious ladies’ man, but they’re definitely just friends. In fact, she’s nursing a hopeless crush on a colleague and Fox is just the person to help with her lackluster love life. Armed with a few tips from Westport’s resident Casanova, Hannah sets out to catch her coworker’s eye… yet the more time she spends with Fox, the more she wants him instead. As the line between friendship and flirtation begins to blur, Hannah can’t deny she loves everything about Fox, but she refuses to be another notch on his bedpost.

Living with his best friend should have been easy. Except now she’s walking around in a towel, sleeping right across the hall, and Fox is fantasizing about waking up next to her for the rest of his life and… and… man overboard! He’s fallen for her, hook, line, and sinker. Helping her flirt with another guy is pure torture, but maybe if Fox can tackle his inner demons and show Hannah he’s all in, she’ll choose him instead?

The Virgin Replay (Rules of Love Book 3) by Lauren Blakely

A virgin, an athlete, a fake romance, and only one bed in the hotel room.
Following rules shot me to the top of my game as an all-star baseball player, and the golden rule is this — don’t hookup with your teammate’s sister.
But ask her to be your fake date when you desperately need one for a family wedding? Nothing in the guy code against that. Plus, the flirty, feisty Sierra’s my friend too, so why the hell not pretend we’re madly in lust for two days in Hawaii?
No hardship in a make believe kiss here, a fake smooch there, as long as we don’t cross any dangerous lines.
Then, the hotel books us into the same suite. Which means she’s showering near me, putting on itty bitty bikinis in the same room, sliding into that king-size bed wearing only a black lace cami.
But I resist…until the night she tells me she’s been waiting for me to be her first. And there’s nothing fake about my desire to say yes, even though that’s definitely against the code. But, maybe only if someone catches feelings? And neither one of us will.
Until I do…

Heartless Player (Westfall U Series #1) by R.C. Stephens

A brand new hockey series from best selling author R.C. Stephens
Rebel

Notorious heartbreaker and handsome-as-sin hockey captain, Wolfe Judd is the golden boy on campus. He could have any girl he wants… and he wants me.

He sees beyond my surface. The way his stormy blue eyes watch me… I feel beautiful for the first time since my accident. Little by little, he tears down my walls, exposing a passion that leaves me breathless and a vulnerability that could leave me shattered.

But all my scars aren’t on the outside, and the ones inside whisper that a guy like him will never fall for a damaged girl like me. Turns out Wolfe is just as broken as I am. He might be a heartless player, but that won’t stop me from playing his game.

Wolfe

Rebel thinks she’s invisible, but I see her… even when she doesn’t want me to. Even when I wish I could get her out of my mind, because falling for her is a complication I can’t afford.

My reputation proceeds me, but Rebel is a game-changer. And if I get too close, I’m afraid she’ll see right through me. Behind the person who my family and teammates expect me to be, to the person who’s been keeping secrets.

With every scorching touch, every unapologetic kiss, the rules change, and the truth unravels around us. If only we could go on living this lie, then I wouldn’t risk losing the only girl I’ve ever loved.

Authors Note: A heartfelt college sports romance with an HEA. No Cliffhanger.
For mature readers.

Boys of Summer (Hot Off the Ice Book 6) by A. E. Wasp

Teammates, roommates, friends with benefits. What could go wrong?

Boys of Summer is a book about finding the perfect person to ride shotgun with on the crazy road trip called life. It contains a Dolly Parton lookalike, an unfortunate deer versus car incident, and poorly-timed epiphanies.

Thunder goalie James McVicker learned early on – if you don’t want to hurt, don’t get attached. So obviously when Vicky finds himself possibly, maybe stupidly, falling in love with his best friend, it only makes sense for him to leave first, right? So why does it feel like he’s just made the biggest mistake of his life?

Patrick O’Reilly has the greatest best-friend-slash-teammate-slash-roommate in the world. Hanging out with Vicky is as easy as breathing, and adding some epic benefits of the sexual kind only makes it better. Obviously, Vicky isn’t in love with him. He’s just caught up in the whole wedding thing. If he would just talk to Paddy, they can work all this out and get back to being friends again.

The course of true love never did run smoothly, but maybe with the help of their friends and family and some last-minute divine intervention, what started as a road trip could turn into the adventure of a lifetime.

Make You Stay is a steamy, contemporary romance that is:
Slow Burn
Friends to Lovers
Single Dad
Feisty Heroine

Aidan:

I’m perfectly content with my life, until Chloe walks through the door, upending any semblance of balance.

Chloe is one of those fast-talking New Yorkers with an opinion about everything. Never mind that most of them are correct.

She also has the greatest ass on the planet, along with a sex kitten smile that threatens to undo me every time we meet.

But we want different things from life, and neither of us is willing to compromise.

I have to keep my distance, no matter how much my heart wants to make her stay.

Chloe:

My holiday plans never included a funeral, or the grizzly bear in a suit scowling at me throughout the service, but here I am.

Turns out the grizzly is named Aidan, and he’s actually a big softie beneath his shaggy beard. A big softie with rock hard abs.

He’s fun, flirty, and dangerously attractive, but we’re strictly friends. There’s no crossing that line, although with each passing night, he’s getting harder to resist.

I changed my life for love once before and I won’t do it again, no matter how much my heart wants him to make me stay.

Burn (Fuel Series Book 3) by Ginger Scott

**Burn is the third and final book in the brother’s-best-friend, friends-to-lovers Fuel Series by Ginger Scott. This second-chance romance completes this angsty, steamy, new adult trilogy.

Dustin Bridge’s world is about speed. About the edge. His life has been carved by cutting corners and making moves, following impulsive decisions while weighing the facts at hand.

On the track, that has never steered him wrong.

In life, though? That’s another story.

On the cusp of greatness, the world’s up-and-coming racing star seems to be living the perfect story. A hero to his hometown. A partner to his best friend. A man poised to take the throne, to become the greatest, and to reap the rewards and attention that come along with it.

He’s been branded the track’s most eligible bachelor. And rarely does he cross a finish line without a dozen screaming, adoring women brandishing his name on glitter-covered T-shirts across their chests, just hoping he’ll break his own rules and take one of them to bed.

But he won’t. As loose as Dustin may be on the road, he’s become disciplined in life. He let love in completely—once. For one person. Hannah Judge. And she wrecked him.

And now, she’s back.

It seemed like a good idea at the time…

When Josie Sullivan agrees to marry her friend Tyler, it’s just so he’ll get a promotion at work. That’s what friends do, right? But what should have been a quick, quiet affair starts to look like the real thing when his family shows up in the middle of the “proposal.” Now, it’s no longer a quick stop at the courthouse during a lunch break, but a full-blown wedding and there’s nothing Josie can do to stop it.

There was no way he could hold his peace…

Daniel Alexander hasn’t been home in years. After fifteen years as a Navy SEAL, he’s more than ready to return to civilian life. Being away for so long, he’s missed a lot of his younger brother’s life and it seems like he’s back just in time to stop him from making the biggest mistake of his life. No matter how he breaks it down, something’s just not adding up about this wedding and he’s determined to figure out why. And he’s not just trying to stop it from happening because he’s finding himself wildly attracted to the bride-to-be.

Or because they can’t stop kissing each other.

Josie had given up on finding her own happily ever after and as her attraction to Daniel keeps growing, she’s suddenly regretting her decision to help out a friend. Now she just needs to decide if she wants to kiss the groom…or the groomsman.
