RATING: 4 Stars!

Raised on the streets, Shay Morgan yearns for a real family, where love is unconditionally offered—even when trust doesn’t come easy. Before that day arrives, she trespasses and steals in order to provide for the few people who’ve gone out of their way to protect her.

Born to privilege, Ben Bishop loathes his family for the despicable things they’ve done, and not done. He vows to be different, play by the rules, do the right thing. Building a thriving nightclub with those who share his values dominates his world.

One explosive night at his bar, Loading Zone, changes everything. For both of them. Forever.

A dance of opponents commences as they thwart with suspicion, start to trust, then sidestep to protect themselves from a fatal blow. Until they soon wonder if they’ve been fighting for the same side all along.

As they begin to open their hearts, they up the stakes with a one-week pact. She shows him the power in breaking the law. He demonstrates the virtue of following it.

Then a far-reaching crime is suddenly exposed—that his family committed. And for one chance moment, Shay and Ben hold the key to right the wrong, correct the injustice. But at what cost?

Will they be able to return from the other side together? Or will their differences tear them apart?

Flirting with danger...has never been so tempting.

***LAWBREAKER is a standalone, full-length new adult romance told in dual POV. Due to mature themes and adult language, this book is for those 18 and older.***

REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

4 Stars!

The Review: 
I love these authors and their novels! I’ve been a fan for a long time. Kat & Stone Bastion know how to write a believable, mesmerizing story that makes you think, and fall in love with wonderful, captivating characters who might start out going in one direction but ultimately win you over as they journey through to the end. That’s what happened here. I loved Shay from the beginning. I even loved Ben from the beginning, too, but he was rough around the edges with a chip on his shoulder. However, I was soon won over and couldn’t help but love this read. From beginning to end, it was filled with beauty, amazing dialogue, and some pretty intense situations that kept me interested and glued to the pages.

Phenomenal, exciting and fun!

Shay is a street kid and she knows the hardships of life. But she’s also relentlessly unselfish as she cares for her friends and works hard to help those who are like her. She’s sweet, kind and full of stubbornness that has served her well. And, she’s sassy and smart. She’s had to be with the way she grew up.

Deciding to try legit work, she takes a job as a bartender where she collides with Ben, who is broody, moody and full of conflict. He’s swamped with his own problems and when he handles a situation badly between the two of them, he has to put his pride away as Shay puts him through his paces while he tries to make things right.

These two together... wow! I loved them. Their meet/greet was page turning! Their story was unique, intense and these authors give you a well written slow build/slow burn with a firey tension that made my heart speed up and my tummy flutter. Once they got past the initial conflict, they were accepting of one another, caring and the authors quickly shed light on Ben’s hardness to the tender man under all the gruff. He was swoon-worthy!

Shay and Ben’s banter was lighthearted one moment and powerful the next. Like I said, this book had some amazing dialogue. It also had some truly well-written introspection as Shay detailed her life and her struggles. I will say some of the inner monologing got a little overwhelming on occasion and a bit repetitive a time or two, but overall, that was a small detour on an otherwise enjoyable read where I got to know Shay and Ben so personally. Both were easy to connect with and I just couldn’t put this book down!

This is the third novel in the Unbreakable series and I loved seeing characters from previous books make appearances. I loved seeing their lives continue. Make no mistake though - you don’t need to read the previous books to read this one as it can be read as a standalone - however, you should because they are just as incredible as Lawbreaker.

Experience what early reviewers are raving about...

Book Excerpt for LAWBREAKER ...

From Ben's point of view...

The rumble of the idling V8 engine vibrated through the truck.

Faint gasoline fumes wafted in through the cranked-down windows, then blew out just as fast on the crosswind.

But none of those distractions fazed Shay.

Her attention had fixed solely on me. “Why do you like me?”

More than like you.”

She didn’t say anything to my clarification. Instead, those expressive green eyes searched mine. Her chest rose with a measured inhale, fell on a slower exhale.

Her slender brows twitched down for a split second. “But why?”

A million reasons came to mind.

But in that moment, one echoed with more force than the rest.

“You live loud...without saying a word. When you’re around, you drown out all the noise. When I’m with you, there is nothing else.”

Silence filled the cab.

We sat on opposite sides. Lap belts held us securely down.

But she flattened her small hand over the worn leather of the bench seat, into the space between us.

I bridged the remaining gap, spread my fingers wide, until my larger pinky touched hers, knuckle to tip.

Long seconds drifted by.

The engine rumbled.

The crosswind blew.

But we didn’t move away from our fragile connection.

We stared at each other...and saw through every defense we’d built. As we inhaled and exhaled, breaths coming faster, shallower, I got the sense that we breathed common air for the very first time.

We’d come from different worlds, but we occupied the same space in that moment. In spite of our differences. Maybe because of them.

But on her next quick breath, her brow furrowed. Her hand twitched away.
Whatever she struggled with had broken through. That spiky armor clamped back around her.

Moment over.

And yet, she still stared at me. Gaze fierce. Jaw set. “When I’m with you, I become someone else. I forget who I am. And I can’t let that happen. You make me believe I can trust again. And that terrifies me.”

I stared back at her, undaunted. “I will never let you forget who you are. Become someone else with me, someone better. Get terrified; we’ll only grow stronger.”

After a long beat, she sucked in a deep breath. Then she pursed her lips and blew it out, nice and slow.

She remained silent. Committed to nothing.

But then I felt her pinky press against mine. Tentative, at first. Then firmer, solid.

She’d spoken, in her own way. And I’d heard loud and clear: I’ll become someone better, I’ll get terrified...just as long as you don’t let me down.

I gusted out a relieved sigh. “Well, hell. No pressure there.”

She didn’t laugh. Her eyes narrowed.

I reached farther and slid my hand over hers. “I won’t let you down.”

Nothing in the world could make me blow this...even though the weight of our world rested on my shoulders.

Including lightening the mood. Now. Before she changes her mind and bolts from your truck.

"This whole book was one rock star moment after another... Simply put ... A MUST READ!" - Craves the Angst

Dirty Headlines, an all-new sexy, enemies-to-lovers romance from bestselling author L.J. Shen is available NOW!

TITLE: Dirty Headlines
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
RELEASE DATE: September 4, 2018
Social Butterfly PR

RATING: 5 Stars!

Célian Laurent.
Manhattan royalty.
Notorious playboy.
Heir to a media empire.
…And my new boss.

I could have impressed him, if not for last month’s unforgettable one-night stand.

I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory—namely, his wallet.

Now he’s staring me down like I’m the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I’m supposed to take it.

But the thing about being Judith “Jude” Humphry is I have nothing to lose.

Brooklyn girl.

Infamously quirky.

Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.

When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals.

He knows it.

So do I. 

Every day in the newsroom is a battle.

Every night in his bed, war.

But it’s my heart at stake, and I fear I’ll be raising the white flag.

"Dirty Headlines is a fantastic enemies to lovers office romance with a perfect filthy asshole hero that I wish I'd written myself." - Laurelin Paige, New York Times bestselling author

REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

5 stars!
"This whole book was one rock star moment after another... Simply put ... A MUST READ!" 

The Review: 
This author can write THE BEST arrogant, domineering, alpha JERKS! And you can’t help but love them. From the moment this book opens up, I was H.O.O.K.E.D! With fun, witty writing, sexy-as-hell bedroom scenes, intelligent and belligerent characters I absolutely fell in love with, fantastic and mesmerizing dialogue all wrapped around an amazing, phenomenal story, Dirty Headlines is THE must-read of 2018!!

This book gets all the stars!

Jude Humphry is smart, savvy, and a truly good person. But she’s also down on her luck. After bombing another job interview, the bills piling higher and higher, finding her boyfriend of five years bumping uglies with his boss and helping her father deal with his sickness, she takes her sorrows to a bar and tries to drown them in alcohol she can’t afford. She isn’t a one night stand kind of girl. Or at least she wasn’t ... until she accepted the invite from the hot dirty talker that just plopped down beside her. She isn’t a thief. Or at least she wasn’t ... until she stole all the money from his wallet while he slept.

She thought she’d never see him again. Too bad he just became her new boss!

Célian Laurent rules his broadcast company and his life with an iron fist. He’s irritable, moody, broody, and he’s an angry man, who has every right to be. He’s got a mad hate for his father, for the lack of true parenting by his mother and he’s mad at himself and the world around him. He’s been hardened by life and the choices others made for him. He’s rude, cynical and unapologetic. Most tremble in his wake, including his employees, as he wields belittling words and deific like power. But as they fear him, they also recognize his tenaciousness, his passion, and his vigorous inner alpha. And let’s not forget that dirty mouth. In the boardroom, the man is a titan. In the bedroom, the man exudes sex!

He also has a burdened heart filled with guilt and pain.

So of course, Jude Humphry couldn’t help but fall victim to his prowess, albeit reluctantly and fighting it tooth and nail the entire way.

I LOVED the chemistry between Jude and Célian. It was HOT HOT HOT! FIERY, MOLTEN LAVA HOT! Those bedroom scenes? Insanely hot. Did I mention hot?

This whole book was one rock star moment after another. The story was engaging and had me quickly devouring the pages to see what would happen next. The plot was twisty with a smarmy bad guy who wanted to destroy his son. Two outstanding main characters who filled the pages with some of the best banter I’ve ever read! The author had me rooting for them from the moment they meet, all the way to the delightful end. Every time Célian let his inner beast growl, I swooned a little more. Jude is unique, and a force of nature. And she totally held her own against the tyrant.

There was never a dull moment. And that ending? Amazing and perfect!

Book Excerpt for DIRTY HEADLINES...

He had an American accent. Not French. American. Smooth. Familiar. Ordinary. He fired out sentences at the speed of light. I heard him, but I couldn’t listen. Shock gripped my body as the pieces of the puzzle fell into place. My dirty one-night stand was my boss. My lying, American boss. And now I had to deal with that—hopefully for a very long time, because I desperately needed this job.

Someone snapped their fingers, and my gaze shot from Célian’s face to Grayson. 

His forehead had crumpled into a frown. “You look like you’re trying hard not to cry or having a really intense orgasm. I’m hoping for you that it’s the latter and some kind of a weird-slash-awesome condition. You okay?”

I nodded, scraping up a smile. “Sorry. Zero orgasms happening under this dress. I just zoned out for a second.” Lies. I was about to orgasm just remembering how good Célian had felt parting my thighs with his big, callused hands and dipping his tongue into my slit.

Then words stopped streaming down on everyone’s heads like a scalding shower, and I realized that indeed there was something worse than hearing Célian speak in his perfect American English. And that was not hearing him speak at all. Because now the icicles were pointed at me like a cocked gun.

I glanced up to meet his gaze. He stared at me for exactly one second before his focus snapped to Grayson. “Am I understood, Gregory?” he asked.


“Crystal clear, sir,” Grayson bowed, his voice trembling at the edges.

Célian jerked his chin toward me. “Your cover girl material is going downhill.”

God. Damn. Bastard.

He recognized me, and I knew it. His eyes had kindled, melting the ice and growing darker the minute our gazes mingled. He remembered, and maybe it killed him that I was here in the same way it buried me.

I want my iPod back, my gaze told him. I had over three thousand songs on that thing, and they were all too good to be wasted on that jerk.

“Jude Humphry. Junior reporter. It’s her first day,” Grayson highlighted, almost pleadingly. He shifted in my direction, as if he might need to physically protect me from the sharp-tongued, suited monster.

I suppressed a smile when I realized I’d told Célian my last name was Spears. Well, he certainly wasn’t a Timberlake. He was a Laurent. An American monarch through and through. A billionaire, a powerful force, and judging by our one and only encounter—a raging playboy. 

This man was inside you, I internally shrieked. And not just once. His cock was buried so deep in you, you screamed. You can still taste the salty, earthy flavor of his cum. You know he has a freckle on his lower back. You know what sound he makes when he empties inside a woman.

I internally thanked my mind for ruining my panties in public, and nodded. “Pleasure to meet you, sir.” I offered him my hand, my face flushing with embarrassment at my choice of words.

Everyone was looking at us, and there were at least fifty people in the room. Célian—if that was even his name—ignored my outreached hand. Instead, he turned his face to the man beside him. “Mathias, any other words of wisdom?”

Mathias? Wasn’t that his father? Just how cold was the man with the icy blue eyes?

“I think you touched everything,” said the big boss—and he did have a heavy French accent, so at least the lie had a seed. Mathias stared at me placidly, like he could read the secret his son and I shared on my face. 

Célian spun toward me, uncuffing his cufflinks and rolling his sleeves up his veiny forearms. “Accounting can go back to their unfortunate line of work. Couture is excused from this meeting—though not forgiven for their horrid blog. Miss Humphry?” He snapped his fingers impatiently. 

He was already waltzing down the narrow hallway, knowing I’d chase him like a puppy, and no doubt taking pleasure in that fact. 

“I have a bone to pick with you.” 

Bone, boner—same difference, right?

I shot Grayson a please-save-my-butt look. His eyes said, I would but I still have a life to live. 

I followed Célian down the hall, my Chucks slapping the floor in a hurry. He sliced through the throng of accountants, then stopped at a corner office, opened the door, barked “Out!” to the man inside, and tilted his head for me to go in. I did. He closed the door, and it was just the two of us.

Two feet of empty space between us.

COVER REVEAL! HATE NOTES by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward is COMING SOON!


A standalone romance novel published by Montlake Romance

By: New York Times Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Release Date: Tuesday, November 6, 2018
Photo/Cover Details: Photo Credit: Tijana Vukovic Model: Dusan Susnjar

It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress.

Something blue.

I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.”

Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true.

The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there. Because I’ve since found out something else about Mr. Starry-Eyed.

He’s arrogant, cynical, and demanding. I should know. Thanks to a twist of fate, he’s my new boss. But that’s not going to stop me from discovering the story behind his last love letter. A love letter that did not result in a happily ever after. 

But that story is nothing compared to the one unfolding between us. It’s getting hotter, sweeter, and more surprising than anything I could have imagined.

Something new.

But I have no idea how this one is going to end . . .

NEW RELEASE with BOOK EXCERPT and GIVEAWAY! SCANDALOUS (Alpha Bodyguard #1) by Sybil Bartel is NOW LIVE!

TITLE: Scandalous
SERIES: Alpha Bodyguard #1

AUTHOR: Sybil Bartel
RELEASE DATE: September 10, 2018
GENRE: Contemporary, Romance


Not what the hell I thought I’d be doing with my life.

Especially not for a spoiled Hollywood actress on location in Miami Beach. But triple pay and carrying a gun had its advantages. I’d shove away paparazzi and screaming fans for a lot less. The Marines trained me to be Force Recon—intimidation and crowd control was child’s play compared to four tours. This assignment should’ve been easy money.

But the doe-eyed starlet with the perfect ass dragged me down her rabbit hole. Living for the spotlight, she leaked the perfect scandal. I warned her making headlines wasn’t in my job description, but she kept smiling for the cameras.

Now she was going to find out just how scandalous a bodyguard could be.

*SCANDALOUS is a sexy standalone book in the new Alpha Bodyguard Series!

The Alpha Bodyguard Series
SCANDALOUS – Tank’s story
MERCILESS – Collins’s story
RECKLESS – Tyler’s story
RUTHLESS – Sawyer’s story

Book Excerpt for SCANDALOUS...

“Do you like me?”

A bite halfway to my mouth, I froze for a fraction of a second. Then I chewed slowly and kept my eyes off her, because it was all part of the game. “You don’t strike me as the insecure type.” I took another bite, not knowing if I should be disappointed in her lack of confidence, or watching her for whatever game she was trying to play me with.

“This isn’t about insecurity,” she countered.

Bullshit. She was wondering why I’d said what I’d said. Horny as fuck, bored with talking, I dropped my fork and grasped her nape. Then I put my eyes on her.

She drank me up like she was starving.

Deliberately, I picked her fork up, stabbed some food and brought it to her lips. Lowering my voice, I tested her. “Open your mouth.”

For two heartbeats she stared at me.

Anticipation surged, wondering if she’d comply, but ultimately hoping she wouldn’t. I bent women. I made them cave to my commands, then I gave them the mind-blowing orgasms they wanted. But it was never a challenge. It hadn’t been for years. In fact, I couldn’t remember the last time a woman had been a challenge.

That alone should’ve been a warning. But add in the fact that I wanted this young-as-fuck, spoiled, hot mess of a woman to be my own personal fuck toy, and I should’ve been calling Luna to tell him to pull my ass off this assignment.

The only smart move was to disengage.

But I didn’t fucking do it.

I increased the pressure on the back of her neck, I touched the food to her lips, and I actually put fucking effort into my command. Stroking her neck, taking the threat out of my tone, I dropped my disinterested expression and let her see how goddamn much I wanted her. “Eat the food, Audrina.”


Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

To find out more about Sybil Bartel, be sure to follow her on Twitter (she loves to hear about your favorite book boyfriend!), visit her website, like her on Facebook or join her Facebook group Book Boyfriend Heroes for exclusive excerpts and giveaways.
