From the USA Today bestselling author of the Unbreakable series, comes a sexy, heart-wrenching novel…Betrayed by Lies.

As an ATF agent, bringing down the Estrada cartel has been my sole mission. I’m a skilled agent, determined and fearless, but a relentless pursuit and a willingness to risk everything almost killed me.

A year later, when an opportunity in Los Angeles presents itself, I jump at the chance to start over and rebuild the career and life I almost lost.

Kate Stevens was not part of my new plan. I never expected she would be the one to save me from my past. She was exactly what I needed—smart, beautiful and independent. I finally have a future I look forward to.

Only nothing in my life ever goes according to plan. Losing Kate is not an option, but fate seems poised to ruin me, and there isn’t a damn thing I can do about it.

Tracey’s Review

A big fan of the Bound and Broken series by author Rebecca Shea, I was thrilled to get my hands on BETRAYED BY LIES, because, ATF Agent Sam Cortez.

Rough doesn’t begin to cover what Sam has been through in the last few months. After betrayal and chaos ensued in his hometown of Phoenix, AZ, Sam has moved on to Los Angeles, eager to begin the next chapter in his career and his life. Having suffered some heartbreak in Phoenix, Sam isn’t really looking for love, but, as is often the case, love so often finds us when we’re not expecting it. When Sam meets Kate Stevens’, his boss’s sister, things just click. I really enjoyed seeing Sam happy, and involved in a loving, passionate, sexy relationship with someone that wanted him for him.

Although BETRAYED BY LIES is billed as a companion book to the Bound and Broken series, and can be read as a standalone, I absolutely recommend reading the first two books in order to have a better understanding of Sam’s background, the reason that he does the things that he does, and, just generally, what makes him tick. Besides the fact that both BROKEN BY LIES (Book 1) and BOUND BY LIES (Book 2) are riveting, action-paced, edge of your seat romantic suspense that should not be missed, they give great insight into Sam, and really provide a great jumping off point in getting his back story. 5 super swoony sexy suspenseful stars for Rebecca, and for Sam and Kate. Do yourself a favor and read this series. You’ll love it.

And don’t miss the first two books in the Bound & Broken Series!

BROKEN BY LIES is just $.99 for a limited time only!

Blog Tour + 5-Star Review: Provocative by Lisa Renee Jones

SBPRBanner-PROVOCATIVE-BT

Provocative (White Lies Book One) by Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: April 18th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Provocative Final Border 4.07.17 PM

Book one in the sexy and intense new White Lies duet by Lisa Renee Jones!

There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.

The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for her.

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

Tracey’s Review

 Finding herself running the family winery is not exactly how Faith Winters envisioned her life looking, and having to deal with the very real possibility of losing her inheritance just makes the load heavier. Enter Nick ‘Tiger’ Rogers, a man used to getting what he wants. With a reputation for always winning, there aren’t many people that would go up against him. As their relationship progresses, Nick and Faith will find that things are never quite as they seem, with things behind the scenes conspiring to muddy the waters.

I absolutely love author Lisa Renee Jones. She just has a knack for writing stories that are at once dark, angsty, and passionate, yet, at their heart, harboring secrets that, when unraveled, are uplifting, freeing, and utterly wonderful. I haven’t read one of her books, in any of her series, that didn’t draw me in immediately and keep me riveted as each layer was peeled back to reveal the pearl at the center. PROVOCATIVE is more of the same, and I was hooked from the very beginning.

One of the things that I love most about Lisa’s writing is the intrigue, the secrets, the way that she surprises the reader time and again, as each little thing is revealed. As the first book in a duet, PROVOCATIVE does a fantastic job of laying the groundwork for the unfolding of the story between Nick and Faith. After the way that things end in PROVOCATIVE, I can’t wait to see what Lisa has in store for these two when SHAMELESS (Book 2) releases in July. 5 stars, and highly recommended that you add this one to your TBR.

Release Blitz + Excerpt: Revelry by Kandi Steiner

Title: Revelry

Author: Kandi Steiner

Release Date: April 20, 2017

Add to TBRbit.ly/RevelryGR

Synopsis:

From the bestselling author of Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey 

Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.

She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t. 

Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her. 

Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost. 

He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.

Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.

Excerpt:

I had just grabbed my oversized hat and slipped my sunglasses on when I spotted Anderson walking up the drive with a large trash bag slung over his shoulder. He wore a simple, black V-neck and distressed jeans, an outfit way too dark and hot for the heat. A light sheen of sweat gathered on his neck as he made his way toward my cabin, his eyes hidden behind all-black sunglasses.

“Change your mind?” I asked, not even fighting the grin on my face as I walked outside and leaned against the banister.

Anderson squinted up at me, his boots heavy as they hit each stair. “About?”

“Tubing?” I asked. That was why he was here, right?

“Oh.” He shook his head as he hit the top stair, shrugging the bag off his shoulders to hold it by the neck in one fist. “No, I have somewhere to be…” His voice trailed off, and even through the tinted shades of his glasses I felt his eyes on my chest. I’d strapped on my favorite boho print bathing suit and paired it with a dainty gold chain that wrapped around my neck once before dipping between my chest and crossing over my ribs.

He sniffed, holding the bag out toward me. “I just came to drop these off. My clothes. Well, the ones that could probably use a little TLC.”

My eyes lit up and I reached for the bag, but Anderson snatched it back, brows shooting up into his forehead.

“No frills, Wren.”

I threw my hands up in surrender. “I promise.”

He smirked, just slightly, and handed the bag over, tucking his hands in his front pockets.

“Are you sure you don’t want to come?” I asked, peering into the bag at my project before setting it just inside the cabin and locking the door behind me.

“I can’t,” he said, lips pressed together. He was tense, the muscles on his forearms tight as he glanced around at pretty much everything but me.

I opened my mouth to ask why but was cut off by the sound of a truck flying into my drive, tires sliding against the gravel.

Tucker was in the driver’s seat with Davie in the passenger. Sarah and Yvette sat in the back, laughing with their hands up as the truck skidded to a stop. They were both sprawled out on a pile of tubes, wearing bathing suit tops and tiny shorts.

All of their faces froze when they saw Anderson.

“Hey, you ready, Wren?” Tucker asked warily, his eyes moving from where Anderson stood in front of me, to me, and back again.

“Yeah, one sec!” I called back.

I turned to Anderson, but his eyes were hard on Tucker, jaw ticking under his skin. When he faced me once more, an anchor fell from my throat into the pit of my stomach, immobilizing me completely. Because even though I ‘d tried to convince myself I was wrong, I recognized the look in his eyes.

Possession.

And when his nose flared and he took one big step toward me, our chests brushing, his hand reaching out to rest almost imperceptibly on my hip, the anchor in my stomach exploded into flames, burning a desire so fierce I inhaled a toxic breath and didn’t let it go.

“Be careful, okay?” His eyes locked on mine just before he leaned in and swiftly kissed my cheek.

He turned on his heel and jogged down the stairs and past the truck. Sarah called his name, but he didn’t acknowledge her, just kept his gaze forward until he’d disappeared from view.

And then everyone looked at me.

No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies.

Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

Blog Tour and Review: Faking It by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

FAKINGITBT

Faking It, an all-new sexy and romantic standalone by Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde is available now!!

CPEWFakingItCover5x8_BW_HIGH

Faking It
by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde
Publication Date: April 11th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Confirmed bachelor Max Sterling isn’t into rescuing damsels in distress, but when the very tempting Hailey Ellison needs his help, there’s only one thing for him to do. Step in and pose as her loving fiancé. Except there is nothing fake about his attraction to her, or how much he wants her beneath him in his bed, moaning his name. But what starts as a sexy, flirty, temporary engagement, quickly becomes something more serious that neither one ever anticipated.

Excerpt:

Max was going straight to hell for lusting after another man’s fiancée. He was absolutely sure of it.

As he followed Hailey out of the three story building she was about to purchase, he berated himself for allowing his attraction to this engaged woman to obliterate any self-control he’d had over his physical response to her. Just because he’d had her soft, curvy body pressed intimately against his a few minutes ago—okay, plastered against him would be a more apt description—it was no excuse for his unruly dick to leap to immediate attention.

Yeah, bad choice of words, but leap it did, without his goddamn permission and before he could fully process what was happening—beyond the instantaneous knowledge that Hailey Ellison fit against his body as if she’d been created specifically for him to fuck. In a matter of seconds, the surge of heat and awareness brought on by having her full, lush breasts crushing against his chest, and her hips aligned so perfectly to his, had his cock perking up and responding to all that physical stimulation.

God, he was such an asshole. It wasn’t enough that he’d gotten a boner, but in that brief moment he’d imagined what it would be like to take the embrace one or two steps further. To back her up against the nearest wall and slide one hand beneath the hem of her very prim and proper black skirt that hugged her hips and flared out around her knees. To wrap that thick, silky looking hair of hers around his other fist to pull her head back so his mouth would have unobstructed access to the creamy expanse of her throat, while his fingers slipped beneath the edge of her panties and touched her intimately, deeply.

See? He was totally going to hell.

Regretfully, and out of respect, he’d pushed her away. Because it was the right thing to do and the last thing he wanted was for her to realize his dick was hard. But mostly, he’d ended the embrace—no matter how innocent she’d believed the gesture was—because he had absolutely no business coveting another man’s fiancée.

Yet, as she walked a few steps ahead of him, his disobedient gaze strayed from all that luxurious hair tumbling down her back and traced along the indentation of her waist. He shamelessly watched the mesmerizing sway of her hips, the perfect curve of her ass that made his palms itch to grab, caress, and smack just hard enough to make her gasp, then moan . . .

Jesus, Christ, he thought with a firm shake of his head. What was he? A goddamn hormonal teenager who had no discipline when it came to a girl he was attracted to? It certainly felt that way, and he needed to get his shit together, like now.

Tracey’s Review

Okay, I’m pretty sure that Carly Phillps and Erika Wilde are going to have to work really hard to write another guy that I adore as much as Max Sterling. This man. This hot, sexy, pretty near perfect man, is the kind of man that we all wish we could find. He’s the reason that we read romance novels. Because, not only is he successful and good looking. Those things are a bonus, but they’re not the things. No, the thing about Max is how freaking perfect he is with Hailey, how careful he is to make sure that she knows that she is perfect, just the way she is.

One of the things that makes a book a winner for me is a storyline that resonates with me, and FAKING IT hit it out of the park in that regard. There are more than a few of us out there that can relate to Hailey and the relationship trials that she’s encountered. She’s worked hard not to be defined by the things that have held her back in the past, but there’s that one area, that one thing, that keeps Hailey from feeling completely free. Enter Max, with his big heart, his understanding ways, and his passion. And, oh, my goodness, this man is not taking no for an answer. Once he’s set his mind to something, it’s all systems go, and Max’s mind is set on Hailey.

Carly and Erika are extremely gifted at crafting stories that make us feel good, and they’ve brought their A-game with FAKING IT. I loved every minute, every encounter, every sizzling interaction, between Max and Hailey. I enjoyed it because they were having such a great time. Throw in the lovable family and friends, folks that we know from previous books, and it makes for just the sort of read that guarantees that I’ll finish up and put it down with a smile on my face. An easy 4.5 stars, FAKING IT is a book that I happily recommend. If you’re looking for a contemporary romance that you’ll enjoy the heck out of, grab it and add it to your TBR.

Lei’d with Cupcakes by Bethany Lopez
(The Cupcakes Series, book 3)

Genre: Romantic Comedy/Suspense
NOW LIVE!


Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Smashwords

Synopsis:

Everybody dreams of a Hawaiian Vacation…

They sell you on the drinks with little umbrella’s, dolphin watching, and long walks on the beach. Which probably happens, if you’re that lucky schmuck living out your dream with your destination wedding, but if you’re a fish out of water PI like me, there’s no time for relaxing because trouble is never far behind.

Instead of cocktails, I ended up dealing with the seedy underbelly of The Big Island.
And, I didn’t see one damn dolphin while undercover on a boat which was spilling over with drug dealers, Kingpins, and Pedophiles.

Elin and Elena think Cade’s family are the coolest people outside of Snapchat, but it’s hard to meet the parents when your boyfriend is in his late thirties and has never had a serious relationship.

I’d never missed my girls so much in my life, but Amy May, Bea, and Carmen are all dealing with issues of their own, and can’t come to my rescue.

The only thing that may help me with this “vacation” is if I could get Lei’d with Cupcakes.

WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS FOUL LANGUAGE, SEX, SOME VIOLENCE, AND SHENANIGANS. IF NONE OF THAT BOTHERS YOU, GRAB A CUPCAKE AND READ ON!

 

Tracey’s Review

Who wouldn’t love a vacation in Hawaii? I mean, sun, sand, surf, how much more relaxing and attractive could a destination be? Add in meeting the family of the man of your dreams, and it should be nothing but smooth sailing. Unless your Lila Compton, because, even when she wants to take it easy, chances are good that things will not go as planned.

Author Bethany Lopez has brought her ‘A’ game again with LEI’D WITH CUPCAKES, the third book in her Cupcakes series. Besides the sun and fun, this is a read chock-full of all of the things that make these books so enjoyable.

Lila’s her same snarky, sassy, jump-right-in self, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. She doesn’t even have to look for trouble in Paradise, because it finds her anyway, and she more than rises to the occasion. Aided by Cade and his family and friends, Lila never stops kicking butt and taking names.

We finally get to see a different side of Cade here, and, if possible, I love him even more. He’s still the big, strong, take-charge alpha guy that we know and love, but being home with his family shows his softer, more relaxed side. There’s a moment (and you’ll know it when you see it) that was so seriously swoony that I could just see it, that endeared him to me forever.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the previous books in this series, because the characters are engaging, there is such a strong emphasis on friends and family, and they constantly make me laugh out loud. LEI’D WITH CUPCAKES has all of this and more, and leaves me hoping for more shenanigans with the whole crazy crew. 4.5 sweet, sexy, action-packed stars for this treat of a read.

Release Blitz and 5-Star Review: Mixed Up by Emma Hart

 

MIXEDUP-availnow2

 

 

 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00022]Hiring my brother’s best friend was not on my to-do list.

Neither was he.

 

Expanding my dirty cocktail bar into food was supposed to be easy, except finding a chef in my little town of Whiskey Key is anything but.

Until Parker Hamilton comes home—bringing his Michelin starred chef’s hat with him.

He has no work. I need someone like him in my new kitchen.

There’s just one problem: I hate his cocky, filthy-mouthed, sexy-as-hell guts.

Even if I might want him. Just a little…

Working for my best friend’s sister? Not on my to-do list.

She’s another story.

Whiskey Key was supposed to be a relaxing vacation, except I haven’t reached the heights I have by lying in a hammock drinking cocktails. So when Raven Archer is desperate for a chef, I offer up my skills.

I’m bored. She needs what I can give her.

Except there’s a problem: I’ve always hated her.

Her and her big, blue eyes, sassy mouth, and killer curves.

If only I didn’t want her.

MIXEDUP-sq9

 

 

The sound of my phone buzzing on the nightstand was loud, jarring, and very, very annoying.
It wasn’t the most pleasant sound in the world to wake up to.
Groaning, I rolled over and batted my hand around on the top of the nightstand. Then, I realized the bed was vibrating. It was a mammoth effort to open my eyes, but somehow I managed it so I could look down the gap between the cupboard and my bed. Just like I assumed it was, my phone was wedged between the leg of the bed and the wooden side of my nightstand.
I fished it out with my finger. The moment it was free, it stopped ringing.
Of course it did.
I picked it up and looked at the screen. Ryan. I frowned—it was early for him to be calling…wait, no it wasn’t. It was seven-thirty. I’d overslept.
No sooner had I finished the thought than my phone buzzed again. It was Ryan.
“What do you want?” I demanded, answering the phone.
“Did you oversleep?” came his response.
“Maybe. I was tired. What do you want?”
He laughed. “Have you seen Parker?”
“You just woke me up. Do you think I’ve seen Parker?”
“Shall I call back when you’ve had coffee?”
“Can you get to the point of this irritating conversation?” I shoved the covers to the side and swung my legs out of the bed. I hadn’t bothered to throw any clothes on before I’d fallen asleep last night.
Ryan sighed. “Ilsa said Parker didn’t go home last night. She came over this morning when his car wasn’t in the drive and asked me if I knew where he was. I don’t, and you’re the last person I know who would’ve seen him, so I’m calling you.”
I jerked around and looked at the other side of the bed. Messy and unkept, but no Parker.
“No idea.” I swallowed and glanced at the floor. His clothes were gone, too. Only mine remained. “Hold on.” I put my phone down and checked the notification bar. There were no messages from him, so if he wasn’t here and hadn’t gone home, maybe he was downstairs?
I threw an oversized shirt on over my head and quickly pulled some panties up my legs before grabbing my phone again.
“I don’t have any messages from him,” I said, opening my bedroom door. “I can’t hel—” I finished on a scream, because the missing man was standing shirtless in my kitchen.
“Raven?” Ryan said into my ear right as Parker glanced over his shoulder at me. “Are you all right?”
“Ssshhh—shit!” I held my finger in front of my mouth. “Spider!” I said to Ryan. “I walked into the bathroom and there’s a big spider in my tub.”
Parker rubbed his hand down his face and shook his head.
“You’re screaming at a spider?” Ryan’s amusement was evident in his restrained tone.
“It’s a big one. It scared me.” I slammed my bedroom door behind me. “I just locked it in there.”
“It’s a spider.”
“You’re not helping.” This was the worst lie ever. “I need to get rid of it, so I have to go. If I haven’t heard from you by the time Parker starts work, I’ll tell him to call his mom. Bye!” I hung up and threw my phone on the sofa like it was on fire.
“What the hell was that about?” Parker asked, spatula-flipper thingy in hand.
“You’re still here!” It came out as more of a squeak than anything.
He stared at me for a moment. “Yeah, but I’m kind of stuck on the fact I’ve been both a stubbed toe and a spider this week.”
I sunk my fingers into my hair. It was messy, and my fingers got caught on some small knots as they threaded through the locks. “Ryan called and woke me up.” I summarized the phone call. “And I panicked when I saw you, because I didn’t know you were still here.”
“Why wouldn’t I be here?”
“I fell asleep and thought you left!”
He shook his head, turning back to my cooker. “I fell asleep, too. I didn’t wake up until your alarm went off this morning.”
“Why didn’t you wake me up? I’m late and I have to put orders through today.”
“You didn’t move,” he said. “So I shut it off, took a shower, and came to make breakfast.”
Now that he’d mentioned it, I could see his dark hair was wet. “Okay, well, you need to call your mom and tell her you aren’t dead or anything.”
“I’ll text her soon. I can’t do it right after Ryan’s called you, can I? That won’t look suspicious at all.”
“Half an hour. Say I left you a voicemail to see if you were coming into work because you were MIA and you realized you forgot to tell her you weren’t coming home.”
“The fact I have to tell her I’m not coming home is, in itself, ridiculous.”
“And that’s why I live alone.” I smiled and pulled a bottle of water out of the fridge. “What are you making?”
“Omelets. Yia-Yia left me omelet seasoning so I thought I’d try it.”
I peered over his arm at the pan. “Where did you get the the ingredients?” I knew for a fact I didn’t have eggs in my fridge.
“Downstairs.” He glanced at me as if the answer was obvious. Which it was, honestly. “Your fridge is both impressively empty and sadly understocked.”
I shrugged and leaned against the counter. “I don’t eat breakfast unless I’m forced to.”
Parker slid the omelet out of the pan and onto a plate in one smooth movement. Then, he picked up the plate, and held it out to me. “Well, I’m forcing you to eat.”
I might not have been a big breakfast eater, but I wasn’t going to turn down food.
“I can deal with that.” I smiled and reached for the plate, but before I could take it, he swung his arm out wide where I couldn’t reach it. “Hey!”
He grabbed the front of my shirt, yanking me toward him. I’d barely righted my footing when he dropped his mouth to mine and planted a slow, easy kiss on my lips. Releasing me like he’d done nothing out of the ordinary, he put the plate back between us and also handed me a knife and fork. “Morning.”
I snatched the plate and cutlery before he could take it away again. “Thanks. I think?”
He laughed as I sat at the table. “Your good morning was screaming at me. The least you could do was kiss me.”
I rolled my eyes and stabbed my fork into the cheesy, melty, eggy goodness. “You should have announced yourself. Left your pants on the floor or something.”
“I’ll remember that for next time.”
“Next time? This is going to happen again?” I was teasing him, because let’s be honest. There were worse things in life than having sex with a hot guy, then waking up to find said hot guy making you breakfast while half-naked.
“Yep. I’ll just remember to call my mom first.”
I laughed, then moaned as I finally put the first forkful of breakfast into my mouth.
Parker side-eyed me. “If you want to finish your breakfast in peace, don’t do that again.”

Tracey’s Review

Parker Hamilton is the thorn in Raven Archer’s side, the pain in her backside, the fly in her ointment, the, well, you get it. Suffice to say that he doesn’t float her boat. And, as far as Parker is concerned, Raven is his best friend’s pain in the neck sister, a necessary evil in his relationship with Raven’s brother, Ryan. But when Raven’s big crazy Greek family descends upon her bar for an extended family reunion, Parker may be the only answer to her making it through without losing it.

Emma Hart has got the romantic comedy trope down like a pro. Snark, sass, witty repartée, I know that I am going to get a healthy and entertaining serving of all of these things every time I open one of her books, and it’s exactly what keeps me coming back, time and time again.

Raven made an appearance in CASANOVA, the first of Emma’s books set in Whiskey Key, FL. I knew from that first glimpse that she was going to be a firecracker, and couldn’t wait to see what Emma had in store for us with MIXED UP, Raven’s very own story. To say that Raven is a strong woman is an understatement. She can more than hold her own, and takes no prisoners, whether it’s running her bar, Dirty, dealing with her large and hilarious Greek family, or exchanging zingers with Parker.

I liked Parker from the minute that he showed up in the story. He can more than handle Raven, and reading their interactions is a little bit like watching a tennis match. The back and forth is non-stop, and left me laughing out loud on more than one occasion. And, then, there’s his pure sexiness, PLUS, the dude can cook. Like, 3 Michelin stars cook. Raven is nobody’s fool, and knows a good thing when she sees it. When she ends up needing a culinary whiz to run the kitchen at Dirty, she only has to think about it for a minute to see that, no matter how much Parker infuriates her, she’s not about to let him leave and take his chefly abilities with him. And, you know what you get when you put two fiery people in the same kitchen, right? Sparks are flying before the dust settles, and soon the two of them are lighting fires of their own.

MIXED UP is a fun, sassy, and satisfying read. It’s an easy 5 stars for me, and one that all Emma fans must read. And, although there are characters from CASANOVA here, MIXED UP is a standalone, and doesn’t depend on the earlier book to entertain the heck out of you. But wait, there’s more! Emma has included recipes for the awesomely named drinks that Raven serves at Dirty, so, not only do you get a must-read story, you get to drink some scrumptious concoctions while you read. This one’s a no-brainer; add MIXED UP to your TBR and get the good times rolling.
