Title: Forward Progress
Series: Men of Fall #1
Author: S.R. Grey
Genre: Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 7, 2019
Meet Graham Tettersaw, former star quarterback. He blew his first shot at success, but now he has a second chance at playing football . . . and at having a life.Graham’s not about to squander this new opportunity with a rising team. No way. They’re about to make his dreams come true, even If they did just add a weird clause that he’s supposed to pretend some random chick is his girlfriend.

Whatever.

Teams can be weird about stuff. But Graham can play along. After all, it’s all about forward progress.

In football, getting the ball down the field and scoring is goal number one. Life isn’t all that much different. That’s why Graham is hoping to do some scoring of his own off the field. Especially when he finds out the pretend girlfriend the team has picked out for him, Eden Vetterly, is beyond hot.

But it’s not all about sex.

Graham really likes Eden.

And she likes him too—a lot.

Too bad the team just changed all the rules.

Forward Progress is the first book in the new Men of Fall series, where football meets romance.

 

“I’ve read a lot of fake girlfriend/boyfriend romances, but Forward Progress stood out amongst them all to me.” – Cranky – The Book Curmudgeon

“This was a great start to the series and I cannot wait to see what S.R.Grey has in store for the Men of Fall.” – Erin Lewis

“Sweetness overload with some wonderful swoon and drama to keep you on your toes come together in this sexy football romance!” – Red Hatter Book Blog

 

“You want me to do what?Irritated, I grab a water from the mini-fridge, take a swig, and slam the bottle down on the table in the middle of the living room of the hotel suite I’m in.

“You’re fucking crazy, Jock,” I sneer.

“It wasn’t my idea, Graham,” he replies, unfazed by my outburst as he sits quietly on the sofa. “I told you the added stipulation in the new contract the Comets are offering was completely new to me too.”

“It’s fucking loco is what it is,” I grumble.

It’s true. This latest development in contract negotiations is truly nuts. They want me to pretend to have a fake girlfriend.

Are they off their rockers? 
“How’s this even supposed to work?” I ask.

“We’re hammering out the details.”

“Great. Do I at least get to meet this mystery woman before I sign?”

“No. There’s no time for that. You will meet her, though, before the season begins.”

“Whatever,” I huff. “I can’t believe I’m supposed to pretend to be dating a girl I’ve never even seen. To top it off, I get to meet her just once, then I’m expected to act as if we’re in a serious relationship.”

“Pretty much,” Jock confirms.

This is bad, but there’s something more I’m struggling with—I’m supposed to also fucking move in with this pretend girlfriend.

Could it get any worse?

Title: Pieces of Me
Author: Nicky Shanks
Genre: Romance Suspense
Release Date: January 8, 2019
Publisher: Limitless Publishing

 

I am Olivia White. At least that’s who everyone says I am.

 

 

 

But it doesn’t feel like me. 

 

I can’t explain it. I just…feel it.
All I have left of a past I can’t remember are headaches and dreams of someone else’s life.
Everything they tell me makes no sense. It’s all lies. It has to be. Why else does it feel like there’s this hole inside me, like I’m missing pieces of myself? Like I’m broken?
But then there’s him. The man with the tattoos—the only person who doesn’t think I’m crazy.
For some reason I’m drawn to him. I have this profound need to be close to him, like he has all the answers. And maybe he does. Maybe all the missing pieces I’m searching for are right there inked on his skin. Maybe my story is there, hidden behind the black ink engraved into his flesh.
But then again…maybe I’m crazy.

 

I live in Kansas City with my husband and our son, Ryker. I have been writing for over a decade, I started out writing songs and music and then realized that those stories were too short for the tales I wanted to tell, so I switched to writing books and articles, which then blossomed into writing contemporary romance and fantasy novels. I am in indecisive person at heart, I love coffee more than a Gilmore girl and my most favorite time to write and create is during a rainstorm (with coffee!).
 
I love hearing from those who read my stories, I love to hear how much people relate to each character and how they are rooting for their favorites to succeed! I don’t only create stories, I create entirely new worlds and people that come to life!

Title: Burning For Autumn (On Call Series #1)
Author: Freya Barker
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: January 8, 2019
Cover Designer: Freya Barker
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

When Autumn McCoy accepted a temporary work contract in Durango, she thought it would be a safe way to add some spark to her existence. She may be getting more than she bargained for when she finds herself the target of impending danger.The outspoken forty-two-year-old isn’t prepared for that spark to ignite flames threatening to engulf every aspect of her life.

Buried under the weight of responsibilities, all interim Chief of Police, Keith Blackfoot, wants is to get back to good old-fashioned detecting. He gets his chance when an encounter with a feisty redhead

seems to incite a wave of arson cases. Although a visit from friend and firefighter, Roman “Chief” Proudfit, provides some direction, he’s left to battle an invisible menace fueling fires that could leave his town—and his heart—in ashes.

And … she does it again! Burning for Autumn is another gem from the mistress of romance and suspense, Freya Barker.

Let start by saying that I REALLY love Keith Blackfoot in this story. He’s one hot, sexy alpha cop who definitely meets his match with Autumn, a snarky, sassy researcher from Mercy Hospital’s burn unit, who happens to be new in town as well.

The attitude and banter that plays between Keith and Autumn is quite amusing. She’s fiercely independent, but Blackfoot isn’t dissuaded by her in the least. Once they find themselves on the same page, the two actually are a great couple. I also really enjoyed all the other characters in this book, whether they’re new or some we recognize from Freya’s other books.

While someone has been sending notes to Autumn, fires have been deliberately set around town and it has everything to do with her. As Keith tries to keep her safe, he and other law enforcement pull together to try and figure out who the arsonist could be. There’s sure plenty of twists and turns, and I was left on the edge of my seat wondering who was guilty.

As with all of Freya Barker’s stories, her attention to detail and description makes it so easy to lose yourself in the world she creates. Her mature characters are real people with flaws and all, which makes any one of them completely relatable. This is definitely a great start to a new series, and I love how it intertwines with Susan Stoker’s Badge of Honor series. I say the same thing about every one of Freya’s books, but she is the BEST STORYTELLER of our time! I highly recommend this one and can’t wait for more. Five stars for me!
I was given this ARC for an honest review, and honest it certainly is.
