Not A Player by R.C. Stephens–New Releas

Not A Player by R.C. Stephens is now live!


Hooking up with an annoyingly handsome stranger on vacation isn’t the best idea, but I could use a little bit of careless fun before my fresh start.

We said no last names, no strings. With law school on the line, it’s all I can offer. I just don’t expect everything to feel so easy— or so right. Too bad I’ll never see him again.

Little did I know that hockey star Logan Russo is also attending Westfall U. Now I can’t escape him… or his sexy silver eyes.

He may not be a player… but he’s still off-limits.


My entire life has been focused on my hockey career. All work— no play. Zero distractions, with no exceptions. Until I sit next to Liliana on a flight to paradise.

Her walls are up, and I can respect that, relate even. But I’ll tear them down, one by one, if that’s what it takes for her to let me in.

Our tropical fling only left me wanting more. I can’t stop myself from fantasizing about the guarded beauty falling apart in my arms. Now I’m breaking the rules to play by hers.

Because Liliana Ramirez isn’t just my team’s PR person, she’s my coach’s daughter.

Heart Sick by Monica James (Heart Memory Transfer, book one)–Review

Monica (middle name) James, what have you done to me? Silly me, thinking this was just about an organ transplant. It is, but it is so much more than that. Heart Sick is the first book in the Heart Memory Transfer Duet. In this book, we are introduced to Dutch and Luna but be advised this one does end on a cliffy.

Monica is just one of those authors for me that I can’t wait to scarf up every little word that she writes. Heart Sick was no exclusion to this, except for having to finish another ARC first. Dutch and Luna have claimed my heart like no other. From the first sentence, I was sucked in and completely invested in Luna’s pain. I felt like I had to read faster, so I could finally take a breath after realizing I was holding my breath.

Dutch is another beast and the emotions that were written for him were also all-encompassing. As a fellow music lover/music major/performer, I can completely relate to the music is his life and in his soul concept. He is a complex character with many different facets, which make him the perfect Hero.

Heart Sick is over the top, dark, unethical, insidious, and psychologically twisted. The twists and turns, the storyline, and the need for these two to catch a break are overwhelming. I cannot wait for book two to come. There are so many questions I have that need to be answered. I NEED to find out how Dutch and Luna’s story is resolved. Full disclosure: I’m giving this book 4.5 stars. I loved it, but the ending was a little rushed/off, thus, preventing me from giving 5 stars.

Defensive Hearts by Alley Ciz–Review

Alley Ciz is back with yet another smashing sports romance. Defensive Hearts is all about Gemma and Chance and these two have been bitter enemies since the very beginning. You will experience a story full of grumpy/sunshine interactions, hilarious sarcastic banter, quality naked time😉, friendship/support group that is a ‘gold standard’, baggage (a lot of baggage), and enemies to lovers at its finest.

Gemma has been introduced to us in previous books. She is dubbed the ‘Protein Princess’ and lovingly takes care of those who mean something to her as the cook in the group. This also includes two Great Danes, Pebbles and Bam Bam, who belong to Mr. Grumpy, but leave it to our girl, Gemma has banned Chase from her cooking.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I laughed, loved the Covenette convos, and wanted to shake Chase and Gemma at times. It was incredible to read about ‘the coven’ and their mates and what is presently happening to them. I adore this friendship group and can’t wait for any little nugget I can gobble up. I love the BTU Alumni series and Defensive Hearts is another fantastic read to the series.

PS…for those that know me, they know I’m a huge dog person. It may sound weird, but, Pebbles and Bam Bam were accurately written. These two were complete scene-stealers!
