Bishop: An Arizona Vengeance Novel 

Sawyer Bennett 

Release Date: August 14, 2018

Synopsis:

Meet the Arizona Vengeance, hockey’s hottest new team. They’re burning up the ice—until a one-night-stand with the coach’s daughter freezes one player in his skates. Bishop Scott, co-captain. Not too shabby, huh? It’s all part of my fresh start with the NHL’s latest expansion team, and that means new teammates, a new coach, a new city, and a big new contract. Basically, I cannot f***ing wait to show my old squad what they’re missing. But first, I decide to check out the town before the grind begins. Turns out Arizona chicks are totally smokin’, and I’m fortunate enough to meet one who’s looking for the same thing I am: a night of anonymous, unforgettable, no-strings-attached sex. Fast forward to the Vengeance arena. It’s the last place I expect to see her again—let alone in her own office. Then bells go off and I finally realize who this girl is: Brooke Perron. My new coach’s daughter. All of a sudden, we’re picking up right where we left off, which means our hands are all over each other. That’s when her dad—my boss—walks in. And before I can get a word out, Brooke’s introducing me as her fiancĂ©. Sure, she just saved my ass. So why do I get the feeling Brooke’s going to turn my world upside down? Maybe it’s because this fake relationship feels way too real. . . .

Review by: Erin 

This story was incredible! I could not put it down. Bishop and Brooke kept me addicted from the start. They are extremely engaging characters. The storyline was phenomenal. I rolled with laughter at several points. I was full of emotion at others. This story is full of all the feels. I loved all the supporting characters as well. They have me excited for what is to come!

Review by: Gina 

This story will melt the ice in the hockey arena!!!! 

Sawyer Bennett delivered another hot and steamy hockey romance! Giving us not only a little bit of sweet but also some very alpha male! I thought the storytelling was great! The author always delivers a great story. I enjoyed the characters. I thought they were fun and entertaining. I did find some parts to be predictable but that didn't deter me from the story. If you like sport romances this is a great story to read!

Review by: Flavia 

Bishop Scott wasn't too thrilled to be picked up by the Arizona Vengeance, but what can you do. So the night before training camp starts he goes out for some fun and has an amazing one night stand. The next day who should he run into, but the coach's daughter who also happens to be the women he spent the night with. And then to make it even worse she tells her dad they are engaged... WTH...

Brooke just moved to Arizona to be closer to her dad after they lost her mother. And now he is very protective of her and his struggling to cope with her death, so in order to not antagonize him with his new player she tells him she's engaged to Bishop Scott who happens to be her one night stand. So they decide to pretend to be engaged until she can break it to her father that nothing was happening between them.
But is it really pretend when they are both attracted to each other and both of them are enjoying the sex way too much...

This was an easy fast-paced fun read for me. Definitely not a fan of sports reads but I enjoyed this one. And I can't wait to read the player, Erik's book next.

Boy Toy by Sarina Bowen • RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW





Boy Toy
By
Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby


Summary

A new romantic comedy from your favorite snort-laughing duo!


Liam
The moment Sadie Matthews walks through the daycare center door, I feel my world tilt in her direction. Again. I fell for her when I was fourteen, and I’m still not over her. Problem: she still thinks of me as a teen she used to babysit. But I’ve learned a few things about pleasing a woman in the last fifteen years. I can’t wait to show her how good it could be. I need to move quickly before I lose her again. This is more than a game to me, but I still plan to win.

Sadie
I’ve just survived the worst year of my life. As a single mom of twin toddlers, I don’t have time for a man. I barely have time to finish a thought. Who knew that Liam McAllister would grow up to be so devastating? He’s everything my husband was not: tall, built, and willing to have a tea party with my girls. 

I can’t possibly get involved with him. He’s too young for me. Too handsome. But he’s so persuasive...

Review by: Flavia

Now that Sadie is single and in need of a new nanny, as the previous ones has not worked out so well for her, she decided to put her twin girls in daycare. So when she drops them off on their first day she is freaking knocked on her ass when she meets their daycare sitter. None other than Liam McAllister who she use to babysat. 

Liam use to have a crush on Sadie when he was a teenager and once he sees her again its still this crush never ended. Since Sadie's divorce and even before that she has had a dry spell and who better to cure her from that than Liam McAllister who happens to be all grown up into a hot 'dish' of a man.

Liam can't believe that all his teenage fantasies are coming true. But even though he feels so much more for Sadie than just a teenage crush, all she sees is boy toy and she is just in this for the sex. How will he convince her that he wants to be so much more than her boy toy??



Sarina Bowen writes amazing romance stories. And this one was no better. I loved this series. It was funny, emotional, dramatic and the chemistry between Sadie and Liam was so HOT!!! I definitely enjoyed every minute of this book. I'm hoping there will be another book that will let us see what happens next with all these couples!!! :-)

EXCERPT: 


I messed up. Big time.
These are my thoughts as I rush into the bathroom for the world’s fastest shower. The hot spray of water judges me as I hastily wash Liam off my thighs.
A better mother wouldn’t let this happen. I shouldn’t have a younger lover. If I didn’t, he wouldn’t be so deliciously appealing. I couldn’t lose my mind, wake him up out of a sound sleep to ride him like a pony. And then collapse beside him in peaceful, sated slumber.
Seriously, how did I let that happen?
You know how, my hormones scold me. Because he’s the hottest thing you’ve ever tasted.
Oh yeah. That.
After showering I get dressed at top speed. Poor Liam is currently shouldering all my parental responsibilities. Throwing on yesterday’s sundress, I pause for a moment to pop a birth control pill, because that’s one thing I won’t goof up.
Then I hurry downstairs.
The sight in the kitchen gives me heart palpitations. But not because there’s flour dusting much of the countertop. Rather, it’s the hot, shirtless guy holding my toddler and making a dump truck sound as Amy tips the measuring spoon over a bowl.
“Yes! Well done, little miss,” he says, relieving her of the spoon. “Batter up!” he says, easing her to the floor and catching Kate, who’s trying to climb him like a tree.
Aren’t we all.
Liam easily rests Kate on one of his perfect arms, measures a half teaspoon of baking powder one-handed and then hands the spoon to Kate. “Beep beep beep,” he says, making the sound of a truck backing up. “Look out below!”
Kate dumps the spoonful into the bowl and giggles.
“Awesome. Who wants to add the milk?”
“My do it!” Amy yells.
Boy, I need another minute of alone time to compose myself. Because I love this picture a little too much. I love Liam’s ease with my girls. I love how calm he is at the center of toddler-induced mayhem.
It causes a little pain in my heart as I allow myself one more comparison to my former life. The truth is I never once saw Decker elbows-deep in kitchen chaos with a kid on one arm. Starting breakfast with twins in tow? He was more likely to captain a NASA expedition to Mars than he was to do this simple Saturday morning thing.
I feel like crying for no reason at all. Clearly I’m on some kind of emotional overload. Maybe coffee will help.
Sliding into the kitchen, I go right for the coffee grounds.
“Mama!” Amy says. “Wiam making pancakes.”
“That is amazing,” I say in a wobbly voice. “What a lucky girl you are.”
“Sorry about the mess,” he says, casting a glance in my direction. And I know he doesn’t just mean the flour on the counter, but the bigger mess of waking up naked in my bed.
“You know,” I say with a small sigh. “Messes shouldn’t scare me so much. It’s going to be fine.”
Liam’s smile is so filled with relief, that I now feel like an ogre. This man wants to make pancakes with us on Saturday morning, and I said no to that before? I’m clearly insane.
“Which frying pan should I use?” he asks, casting an eye on the cookware hanging from the rack over the sink.
“Oh, no. You want this.” I pull a double-burner griddle out of a lower cabinet.
“Oooh,” he says. “Mommy has the fancy pancake griddle.”
Kate giggles. She’s gazing at Liam as if he invented fun.
And in my life, I guess he did.
Here’s the tricky thing about being a shrink—sometimes you notice that you’re doing something that’s exactly contrary to the advice you’d give your patients.
I’m having one of those moments right now.
If I had a single mom in my office telling me there was a lovely guy in her life who was kind to her kids—and yet she was giving him the stiff arm? I’d tell her: “Be kind to yourself. Don’t push away the good people in your life, especially if you think you don’t deserve them. Let people surprise you.”
I’m such a hypocrite.
Also, I need caffeine.
Ten minutes later I’m sipping from a mug of coffee, but Liam’s is cooling on the countertop. The man has his hands full right now as he puts pancakes on the griddle with “help” from my daughters.
“How about a few of these?” he asks, holding up a bag of chocolate chips. Meanwhile, Kate waves the spatula around like a ninja. “A guy needs to make smiley faces in his pancakes sometimes.”
Good. Lord. It’s a miracle I’m not just a puddle of my former self right now. This is some serious mommy porn I’m watching. Shirtless guy feeds toddlers before eight a.m. I walk over to the high cabinet where I keep the ramekins. “We could make smiley faces with dried organic currants,” I say, just to be a pain in the ass.
Liam makes a face of disgust as I take the chocolate chips from his hand and pour some into a ramekin. “Joking! Here.”
He gives me a big, hot smile. Okay, it probably wasn’t meant to be hot, but I feel flutters down below.
“Choc-it!” Kate yells, grabbing for the ramekin.
“Easy,” Liam says with a laugh. “That’s for my artwork. Come here and I’ll show you.”
I set the table and pour the sippy cups of milk. And Liam manages to serve up two smiley pancakes—one for each girl—at exactly the same moment, in exactly the same size. This is a man who knows his way around toddlers.
“Not cut it!” Amy yells when I approach her plate with a knife. She picks up the pancake in two hands and takes a bite right out of the side of its face.
“Okay, right.” I back away. Forks are optional today, then. No big deal.
Liam takes advantage of this moment of quiet to quickly pour six more pancakes onto the griddle. He leans over his work, dotting them with chocolate chips.
I step closer to him and put a hand on his lower back. “Thank you,” I whisper.
“For trashing your kitchen?”
“No.” He glances at me and I give him a shy smile. “For being so amazing all the time.”
His eyes get very warm, and I just want to stay right here in that blue-eyed gaze as long as I can. “This might be a good time to confess that I didn’t make smiley faces on my own pancakes.”
“No?” I look down at the griddle. Side by side, two of them have a different design—little bullseyes in their centers. “Those are…?”
“Boobs,” he whispers. “My inner fourteen-year-old has a dirty mind. He can’t shut it off sometimes.”
“Drink your coffee,” I whisper, handing him the mug. “Sit down. Let me finish these for you. Or go put on a shirt because my inner fourteen-year-old has her tongue hanging out all the time, too.”
He gives me a wicked, wicked smile and then runs upstairs to find his shirt.

Review by: Leeann 

Well…. I didn’t think she could pull it off yet again, but she did!
When I read the synopsis for this book/series I really thought “Oh yeah here we again with this storyline”… Boy was I surprised.. Really really surprised..

Meghan March has taken this plot and twisted it on its head.. She has created characters that should be hated and made them lovable and easy to relate to. It is hard not to feel empathy towards them.
This story is all about old traditions and how they affect future generations and how the oldies manipulate situations & people to do their bidding for them.

Some of the support characters are as funny as they are frustrating and provide a whole side of entertainment that complement the main storyline. I absolutely loved this first installment and cannot wait for the 2nd one to be released!


5+++++++++ stars



Review by: Stacey

I love second chance romance stories and Lincoln and Whitney’s was such a page turner! Lincoln comes from money and Whitney’s family lost everything because of Lincoln’s family! It’s your typical we can’t be together love story but they have an undeniable connection and chemistry that is off the charts! But Lincoln’s mom and family all want him to steer clear of Whitney and Whitney’s family feels the same way about Lincoln. But life has so much more in store for them...and they both have a hard time fighting what’s they feel! How could something so wrong feel so right? Is love enough? Or will their families make it impossible to be together? 


4 Stars 




     
     
      


Guilty as Sin  

Guilty until proven innocent.

That’s the way the world works, right?

I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable.

The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.

If only I could forget just how easily Lincoln Riscoff can drag me under his spell.

Whitney Gable is the kind of woman you fight to the death to protect.

To keep.

To cherish.

I’ve finally learned my lesson, and it’s time to prove I’m the man who’s worthy of her.

I don’t care what it takes, because failure is not an option.

No matter who or what stands in our way—this time, she’ll be mine forever

Review by: Gina

This story was a lot of fun to read! I loved the story on how these two characters meet and how the story developed. It made for a great read. I loved the humor in the book. I found myself laughing through out the book but I also loved the little bit of mystery and suspense that was added to the story. One thing I did notice was that the story toed the line with the humor. Yes, it had funny parts but it never went to the next level. Same with the suspense. It toed the line with suspense but never fully crossed. That is one thing I wish I could change with the story. Otherwise, it was a very enjoyable read. I loved the characters and how they developed. The drama that was thrown in the story worked. And I thought it was all really well written and I can't wait for the next book!
