SYNOPSIS:
After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.
Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.
But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.
With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.
He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.

What did I just do? 

My hands tremble. 

Not just to Easton, but to me too. 

I clasp them to hide it from the men before me. 

To the promise I made my dad. 

Chills tighten my scalp. Pull on my hair. Twist my heart. My stomach churns and bile claws its way up my throat. 

The clock. The hand keeps moving. Minutes pass by. But I feel like time stopped with my heart when I spoke those words. Easton isn’t one hundred percent ready to return and be reinstated to the lineup. He’s not going to meet your deadline. 

The shocked expressions. The wide eyes. The sudden scooting out of Cory’s chair as he left the room, fingers dialing his cell, leaving me with nothing but hope that I just did the right thing when every part within me riled against it. Told me I was wrong. That I misinterpreted what I saw. 

And yet I knew what I saw. 

Then the questions began. 

Each minute that passes causing more doubt to break through and crack my certainty. 

The damn unending questions. 

The list of people I’m letting down growing with each passing moment. 

Having to talk about Easton when all I wanted to do was get to him. See him. Explain to him. Touch him so I could soothe the discord. 

Having to explain why I failed. Why Doc Dalton’s team failed. 

The hands on the clock continue to tick. Seconds turns to minutes. Minutes I want to take back. 

Minutes I can’t get back. 

Cory, back in the room now, whispers with the man next to him while the others around the table stare at me. Waiting. Gauging. Wondering. 

The door shoves open. The sound of it banging against the wall ricochets around the room but has nothing on the slamming of my heart against my rib cage. 

He already knows. 

For a split second our eyes meet. I see the hurt. The anger. The questions. 

And he doesn’t even know that I’m the one who caused this to happen. 

“Easton.” His name is a shocked plea asking for forgiveness when my guilty conscience screams at him that it’s my fault, but just as soon as our eyes meet, he just shakes his head. 

“Don’t.” It’s all he says, the warning is as clear as the disgust in his expression.

I’m shell-shocked. From the events. From seeing him. From having to face what I just did. And before I can process what to say to him in front of these men, he speaks. 

“A trade? A fucking trade?” His voice reverberates in the small space and commands the attention of the men sitting at the table. He’s standing there, his practice gear still on, and his expression a mask of disbelief. “I gave my career to this organization. I’ve turned down bigger deals, flashier contracts to go to other teams, and this is how you repay my loyalty?” His laugh holds anything but amusement. “Well, fuck you, Cory. Fuck you and whatever you’re trying to do here.” 

“I’m just trying to run a team, Mr. Wylder.” Cory’s voice is calm and even but the hint of condescension in it scrapes over my skin. 

“Run a team . . . or ruin a team?” Easton takes a step closer, shoulders square, posture threatening. His finger pounds on the desk with each word he speaks. “You think this is how you treat players and then expect them to win a pennant so you can collect your nice little bonus once the World Series is won? Think again.” 

“Good luck with your future team.” Cory gives him a dismissing nod. 

Easton seethes. Understandably. His anger so palpable it suffocates the room. 

I wait with blood on my hands and guilt in my heart. 

“You’re a heartless son of a bitch, you know that?” Easton sneers as his hands fist at his sides.

SYNOPSIS:
Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.
Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.
So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.
Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.
And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play.

PURCHASE HERE:
Holy hell, Skye Warren... what have you done to me now?

I can't get enough. I can't. Skye Warren's writing is my drug. Her books offer euphoria, an addiction that, even in its darkness, its ugliness, its ability to pull you into the deep recesses of despair, it feels so lush going down. Warren's writing is nothing short of stunning in The King, her storytelling grows darker, smarter, more beautiful, the crafting more meticulous with each new storyline. Skye Warren demonstrates her genius in the first half of this duet, weaving a complex story of terror and treachery and unrequited longing,a story with a jaw-dropping ending that has left me starved for more, desperate for another hit.

I've decided that what I love most about Skye Warren's books, what I find so addictive about them, is the dynamic she creates with her characters, the juxtaposition of a vulnerable, broken female desperate for warmth with an impenetrable, hardened man who rarely shows softness toward her. It's an addiction, this need to see him brought down, to find the cracks in his armor, to see him show kindness and affection when it's so clearly against his nature to do so. Her stories often involve a remote, emotionally unattainable man whose only soft spot is a woman, but where the evidence of that truth we're so rarely allowed to see. That is true for Damon and Penny, and my need to see him succumb, to allow himself to be what she wants when it seems so impossible, that, along with this captivating, horrifying storyline, had me turning these pages hungrily.

Damon's world is one of darkness and sin, a war to survive amidst the most undesirable dregs of society. Somewhere along the way he met Penny and found in her something that he had to protect. Despite the fact that she's so young, despite the fact that he never showed her that he had any solid plans to be with her, never showed her any affection, there's no denying something was there. And that something drives this plot, holding me ensnared in a storyline that never felt good to read, as Warren's stories often don't, but that I couldn't look away from.

Children paying for the sins of the fathers with skin and sex and soul has been a recurring theme through many of Skye Warren's last few books. I was first introduced to Damon Scott in The Pawn, a story where a naive but privileged girl loses everything due to her father's reckless greed, so she reluctantly auctions off her virginity in order to save the only thing she has left. In The King, an equally naive but destitute girl finds herself in the harrowing position of being forced to pay her father's debts with the only thing she has to her name... her soul. I thought the dynamic between Gabriel Miller and Avery James (The Endgame Series) was a complicated one. The circumstances surrounding Damon Scott and Penny might be even more so. Their situation is just as complicated, woven together by a similar pain, by a war with a common villain, but in many ways it's even more insane. This story is so dark, so twisted, so gripping, I couldn't get enough. I'm DYING for The Queen, for some hope, for a chance at a happy ending in a world where they don't exist.

Jessica's Rating:
Skye Warren is the New York Times bestselling author of contemporary romance such as the Chicago Underground series. Her books have been featured in Jezebel, Buzzfeed, USA Today Happily Ever After, Glamour, and Elle Magazine. She makes her home in Texas with her loving family, two sweet dogs, and one evil cat.

REVIEW: RAW NEED BY CHERRIE LYNN!!!

Title: Raw Need
Series: Larson Brother's Bk #2
Author: Cherrie Lynn
Release Date: June 27, 2017
PURCHASE HERE:

SYNOPSIS:
Zane Larson has done everything he set out to do: conquered past demons, saved lives through his music, and toured the world as the frontman for one of the most popular rock bands in the world. This life—and an escape through music—was supposed to be everything he’s ever wanted, but after meeting Rowan, Zane’s no longer sure…
Soon after her husband’s death, Rowan Dugas learned she was pregnant. With grief and uncertainty her only companions, Rowan was only able to find an escape through music; specifically Zane Larson’s hypnotic voice. But after meeting the sexy lead singer of her favorite band, Rowan can hardly believe he’s interested in her. But Zane also has a painful connection to her unborn child - Zane's brother is responsible for her husband's death.
Torn between the only family she has left, and a life with Zane unlike anything she’s dared to dream about, Rowan’s decision will change her fate forever. Raw Need from New York Times bestselling author Cherrie Lynn is a heart wrenching, emotionally intense story that will leave readers breathless.
PURCHASE HERE:
"He made her feel like everything was fine when nothing was fine. Calm in the middle of crazy. Right in the middle of so much wrong."

Raw Need is the highly anticipated second installment in Cherrie Lynn's Larson Brothers series. In Raw Deal, we were briefly introduced to Rowan Dugas, the heartbroken widow of MMA fighter, Tommy Dugas, and Zane Larson, the rock star brother of the fighter who blamed himself for the crushing blow that killed his opponent. After Zane is commissioned with cheering up Rowan in the wake of her husband's death, the two forge an unlikely friendship born from a horrific tragedy and a messy but perfectly heart wrenching romance evolves.

Rowan's grief and her inner turmoil is a palpable entity in this story. I felt her conflict, her loss, her need to hold on to what was warring with her guilt over moving on to what could be. I felt her frustration, her longing, her sadness, her obligation, her guilt. I just GOT her. Connecting with a character in that way thoroughly invested me in this story. I was frustrated for her, angry for her, heartbroken for her, for how trapped she felt in this impossible situation, stuck between the memory of her dead husband and the new feelings she's discovering for a rock star that could set her free.

I was worried I might not love this book as much as I loved Savannah and Mike's story in Raw Deal. But I did. I so so so did. I may even go so far as to say that I loved it even more. With that said, I did feel that the second half of this book didn't feel as seamless as the first. I couldn't quite keep up with what was going wrong between these characters toward the end and I felt the story lost a bit of its momentum. But I loved this book as a whole. Raw Need is full of emotion and intense, complicated drama. This widowed expectant mother trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life with the help of a superstar musician is full of angst and turmoil all by itself. The rock star element, the sensual, thrilling layer of fame and celebrity adds intoxicating depth to an already addictive storyline. There's so much happening in this book... Familial drama, heartache, steamy sex, the angsty kind of conflict that comes along with any good rock star romance, and a pregnancy that makes a tenuous situation feel painfully impossible. As far as Cherrie Lynn novels go, this will certainly go down as one of the most emotional and one of the most unforgettable. Despite the minor flaws toward the end, I loved this book hard and I'm so looking forward to whatever Cherrie Lynn has in store for the next Larson brother

Jessica's Rating:

 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author CHERRIE LYNN has been a CPS caseworker and a juvenile probation officer, but now she writes contemporary and paranormal romance on the steamy side. She's also an unabashed rock music enthusiast, and she is fond of hitting the road with her husband to catch their favorite bands live. Cherrie lives in East Texas.
