Releasing June 21

When I was sixteen a gypsy fortune teller told me my future held darkness and death.
She was right.
But what she didn’t tell me was the devil himself would rise from hell in the form of Lucca Dyshekov and take everything from me with a gun held to my head.

He’s the Bratva assassin they all call Merciless.
On our wedding day, he taught me real monsters aren’t the ones who hide in the dark.
They’re the ones who stare you in the face and steal your soul.

On a quest for revenge, he takes me and unearths secrets from the past that will cause a war.
When death lies on the horizon the enemy of my enemy becomes my friend.
In this instance he’s my husband.
The real question is when he finishes uncovering the truth, will he keep me or kill me.

Releasing July 12

Everything changed overnight.
Truth became my enemy, and the sting of betrayal dragged me into a web of lies.
I’m damned if I fight to live and damned if I die.
Both will be dangerous for the child growing inside me.
I can’t trust Lucca to save us.
Love is a myth we shouldn’t have explored.
He was always my enemy.
Love just made me forget and blinded me to the truth.
The cruel hand of death is the only answer when doom takes over.
I don’t know if I’ll survive, or if death will bury me along with the sins of the past.

Showcase by P. Roper

Title: Showcase

Author: P. Roper
Release: June 17, 2021
Genre: Dark Romance
Cover Design: Dalia Hernandez



My life was anything but ordinary. Being wrapped in taboo secrecy meant being lonely, even in a crowded room.

That was my world. Until I met him. He swooped in, knocking everything I knew off its axis and rearranging things in the most charmed fashion.

But I’ve come to realize that even a dramatic shift in scenery doesn’t change the people around me. It only alters their methods of scrutiny and has the power to open me up to bigger, more startling realities.

However, I guess it’s a good thing that my knight in shining armor plucked me from my tower. Had he not, I may not have known the ugliness of his world. But I also would never have learned what it felt like when my soul caught fire.

** This book contains mature content, not suitable for young readers, included but not limited to strong language, dark themes, and sexual scenes that may be triggers to some readers.**






P. Roper is a word junkie & caffeine enthusiast, born and raised in Western Canada.

She has been half of the book review team Just Living a Thousand Lives since 2019, focused on NA romance; but don’t ask because there is no way she could actually choose a favourite trope.

The Rebel Brother (Cole Brothers, #4) by Alex Jade




Title: The Rebel Brother
Series: Cole Brothers #4
Author: Alex Jade
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 17, 2021


BLURB

I’m the Rebel of the Cole Brothers.

Mostly because, I’m always getting my nose in things I shouldn’t be. It’s not my fault, I’ve been that way since birth.

So, it’s no surprise, when one of my best friends, Garrett Tatum, told me he was moving back to our small town of Wishing Falls and his younger sister, Emma, was joining him that trouble was coming. I got that feeling in my gut—the one that said don’t do it.

I tried to tell myself to steer clear, that’s she’s off-limits, forbidden. But playing it safe has never been my thing so why start now.

Things have always had a way of working out for me. So, I hit the gas to see how far I get. Hopefully, I don’t crash and burn, and lose a lifelong friend because I can’t keep my hands off his sister.

That Day by Karen Deen




Title: That Day
Author: Karen Deen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 16, 2021


BLURB

THAT DAY

A day, like no other.
They happen once in a lifetime, they say.
So why am I ‘lucky’ enough to have more than one?

Here I am living life, minding my own business.
Until the man I’d been fantasizing over for a year.
Ends up in my bed.

The sensual words he whispers late at night.
His touch on my skin, ignites my inner vixen.
Making me want things I’ve only ever written in words.
And when our bodies unite,
the electricity is more powerful than lightning.

Kurt Dolan is fast becoming the calm of my storms.
The man who will be my forever
Well so I stupidly thought …

EXCERPT

“Coco, shush, you are making a spectacle of yourself. No guy likes a girl who is loud and never shuts up.” She finally stops barking and looks up at me like she understands what I just said.
“Oh, now you want to listen?” I pat her head as she starts wagging her tail at me.
“One day we will work out this me-the-master, you-the-dog, relationship. In the meantime, can you just stop making me run? Otherwise, you’ll be on your own, because I’ll be the dead lady, face first in the sand after my heart attack.” She looks up at me and gives me one bark and then starts calmly walking towards home like I’m the one making a fuss.
“You think I’m the diva? Well, I’ve got news for you. If there was a prize for the sassiest dog in North Carolina, you would take the gold medal.” I laugh to myself because this is my day beginning like normal. Me talking to a dog and actually thinking I’m having a conversation with her.
Yep, I’m officially a nut case!
Looking out to sea again, I catch sight of the guy in the surf that Coco seems to have a thing for. He hasn’t moved. He’s just bobbing up and down on the waves and staring straight at me.
Fuck.
I don’t want to draw attention to myself, but I can’t look away. I know who he is. Well, I don’t know know who he is, but I know who he is on sight. It may or may not have something to do with me spying on him every morning and afternoon from my porch as he strips off beside his truck, getting in and out of his wetsuit.
I’m not purposefully looking… well, sort of. I mean, if some hot guy happens to park at the end of the parking lot closest to your house and is facing you every time he lifts his shirt, what’s the point in missing the show? Or the hot ass that bends over with his towel wrapped around his waist as he pulls his wetsuit up underneath it. I pray every day that it will accidently slip undone. I still don’t know… does he wear anything under that towel and wetsuit, or is it a commando thing?
“Shit!”
Stumbling forward, I nearly fall flat on my face as Coco decides she is going to run again. Except this time, she’s attached to me.
Bitch of a dog, I’m sure she does it on purpose. Probably because she saw me eyeing her surfer boy. I swear this dog is human, or at least wants to be.
“Coco, if you don’t slow down you are not getting any breakfast!” My squeaky voice rings out as I try to keep up with her.
“Yeah, that’s right,” I say as she slows to a walk again. “I’m the boss, remember.” I’m trying to catch my breath again, and I let out a giggle. You would think walking every afternoon and morning—with this crazy dog that has me running half the time—would make me fit.
God, what must that guy on the board think of me? I’m probably his morning comedy relief. I’m the story he tells his work buddies when he gets to work.
‘Oh, you should have seen the crazy dog lady this morning, almost face planting in the sand when the dog took off on her.’
Hmm, what would his voice sound like?
I’m sure it would be deep and a little raspy, like the real rugged guy that he looks like. Trying to imagine him talking about me is a bad idea. My mind starts wandering to what he would sound like but not talking to his buddies. That voice I can hear, but then it changes to his dirty talk. Fuck, I have been on my own too long.
That’s what they call desperation, when you are imagining a guy you have never met talking dirty to you while he fucks you.
“I’m a lost cause,” I mumble to myself as I walk along the beach towards home. Coco just looks back at me with those sad eyes, then turns forward again and keeps walking.
“Great, now even my dog thinks I’m a sad case. My life is a mess.”
