There are so many fantastic releases being published this week, but, alas, I had to whittle my list down from my initial list of ten books to five books.
This week I am excited to read these books and/or share my reviews for these books with you. Check back throughout the week in order to see my reviews and other book news, and make sure you head over to my Facebook page for your chance to win an e-book copy of one of the many new releases being published this week!
The boys of the Wicked Horse are deliciously dirty, but none have been as mysterious and intriguing as Bridger, the owner and operator of the Silo. He is man with little emotion and takes no enjoyment in sex, yet the reader sees that he has feelings when he takes care of his employees and friends. I couldn’t wait to see his layers stripped away and to meet the real Bridger, and let me tell you, Sawyer Bennett delivers with this character and his story. It is the best one of the series!
Bridger Payne is an enigma that no one can figure out. Wise beyond his years, eerily intuitive and sexy as hell, every woman in The Silo wants him.
None can have him.
Not the real man, anyway.
He might wield the lash for you if you ask prettily, but he’ll get no gratification from it. He’ll definitely make you scream, but he won’t think twice about you when he walks away.
Bridger carries the darkest of secrets. He’s filled with too much pain.
He’s utterly untouchable.
Until she came along.
**Warning: this book has sex in it. Lots of sex. Dirty sex. The Wicked Horse Series is a bit different than what Sawyer Bennett normally writes. While you’ll still enjoy fabulous characters, a suspenseful story, some witty banter and an epic romance, there’s just… a lot of sex. You’ve been warned.

This will be my first book by Kelly Elliot, but the synopsis alone intrigued me. I love a sports trope, especially football, but most of them focus on athletes, and Kelly Elliot’s hero is a dirty talking coach. This difference alone makes the book much more interesting to me as a reader.
I am excited to see a sports romance from this angle. I know I will be reading this one the minute it hits my Kindle, so look for my review for this book on Friday.
My life revolved around two things. Football and my cock. And not necessarily in that order.
Being the head football coach for a top university in Texas had its ups and its downs.
The ups? Endless women to f*ck.
The downs? The politics that came with the job.
From the moment Aubrey Cain walked into my office, she turned my world upside down. Being forced to have her follow me around for a month was going to be a pain in the ass. Especially since I couldn’t keep my eyes off of her.
The best I’d hoped to come out of this was a few nights with her in my bed. I never imagined she’d be the game changer.
Brett Owens was my assignment.
Head football coach for a top college, bad boy reputation, short temper, and handsome good looks should have scared me off. But I was tougher than that.
From the first words out of his obnoxious, dirty-talking mouth, I knew it was going to be a long month. It wasn’t five minutes after meeting him, he hit on me. If only I had known his blue eyes would haunt my dreams and awaken a desire inside of me I never knew existed.
This was business. There was no way I would be tempted by him no matter how good looking he was or how many things he whispered in my ear.
He was only supposed to be my assignment. Not the man who threatened to destroy both my heart and my career. I would follow along with his playbook for now. But who would end up winning was anyone’s guess.
The Playbook is a stand-alone novel.

Well Hung is ridiculously romantic, hilarious & HOT!
Lauren Blakely is one of my favorite writers. She transitions between mystery-romance and romantic comedy so well, and it keeps her writing fresh for me as a reader. No matter what sub-genre of romance she is writing in, I can always count on a few things:
•The writing will be wonderful, and it is. Well Hung is a great story with crazy & ridiculous antics from Wyatt and Natalie. I love every minute of their story, even when they frustrate me with their resistance.
• I will laugh. Her romantic comedies, particularly this series, are hilarious. I laughed so many times while visiting the mind of Wyatt, and his antics just upped his likability as a character.
• The sex will knock your socks off. Lauren Blakely can write a sex scene that will melt your Kindle, but what I liked most in this story is how they couldn’t seem to keep their hands off of each other because their chemistry was just that hard to resist. This may seem over the top, but it wasn’t at all. It added to the believability of their relationship. You will see what I mean when you pick this one up.
This sweetly endearing romantic comedy is just fabulous. It is a definite must read, and I can’t wait to see the rest of the crew fall in love.
From the NYT bestselling author of Mister O, comes a hot and hilarious new standalone.
Here’s what you need to know about me – I’m well-off, well-hung, and quick with a joke. Women like a guy who makes them laugh – and I don’t mean at the size of his you-know-what. No, they want their funny with a side of huge, not to mention loyal. I’ve got all that plus a big bank account, thanks to my booming construction business. Yup. I know how to use all my tools.
Enter Natalie. Hot, sexy, smart, and my new assistant. Which makes her totally off limits…Hey, I’m a good guy. Really. I do my best to stay far away from the kind of temptation she brings to work. Until one night in Vegas…Yeah, you’ve heard this one before. Bad news on the business front, drowning our sorrows in a few too many Harvey Wallbangers, and then I’m banging her. In my hotel room. In her hotel room. Behind the Titanic slot machine at the Flamingo (don’t ask). And before I can make her say “Oh God, right there, YES!” one more time, we’re both saying yes – the big yes – at a roadside chapel in front of a guy in press-on sideburns and a shiny gold leisure suit.
But it turns out what happened in Vegas didn’t stay in Vegas. And now my dick doesn’t stay in my pants when she’s around. But the more we try to keep our hands to ourselves, the more we end up naked again, and the more time I want to spend with her fully clothed, too. The question is…do I take this woman to be my ex-wife?

A delicious, sexy, laugh-out-loud modern romance about a newly single woman and her journey to find love again, from New York Times bestselling author Alice Clayton and debut author Nina Bocci.
Avery Bardot steps off the plane in Rome, looking for a fresh start. She’s left behind a soon-to-be ex-husband in Boston and plans to spend the summer with her best friend Daisy, licking her wounds—and perhaps a gelato or two. But when her American-expat friend throws her a welcome party on her first night, Avery’s thrown for a loop when she sees a man she never thought she’d see again: Italian architect Marcello Bianchi.
Marcello was the man—the one who got away. And now her past is colliding with her present, a present where she should be mourning the loss of her marriage and—hey, that fettuccine is delicious! And so is Marcello…
Slipping easily into the good life of summertime in Rome, Avery spends her days exploring a city that makes art historians swoon, and her nights swooning over her unexpected what was old is new againromance. It’s heady, it’s fevered, it’s wanton, and it’s crazy. But could this really be her new life? Or is it just a temporary reprieve before returning to the land of twin-set cardigans and crustless sandwiches?
A celebration of great friendship, passionate romance, and wonderful food, Roman Crazy is a lighthearted story of second chances and living life to the fullest.

Monica Murphy is another one of my favorite authors. I have two of her series, and I adore each of them. This book is YA, but it is still getting rave reviews, and from what I can deduce, there is a lot of drama in their lives. So, bring on the drama, because I love a friends to lover trope
With friends like these…
It’s the end of summer. Just before I start senior year with my two best friends in the whole world. Dustin and Emily are everything to me. We’ve been inseparable since middle school, and when we’re together, nothing can go wrong.
But things aren’t always what they seem. Em’s turned into a drunken mess who parties too much. Dustin and I have hooked up a few times–and now he’s ready to take our relationship to the next level. Yet I’m not sure I want things to change. I’m scared if I take it any further with Dustin, our friendship will be ruined forever. Then there’s Ryan. The new guy. He’s hot. He flirts way too much. And Em has totally set her sights on him.
So when my best friend betrays me in the worst possible way, guess who’s there to help me pick up the pieces of my broken heart? Ryan. But he’s so confusing. Annoying. Sweet. Sexy. I want to trust him, yet he makes it so hard. What I really want is for everything to go back to the way it was before.
Before I found out that best friends make the worst kind of enemies.
