Release Date:    October 11, 2016


From New York Times bestseller, Kendall Ryan, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

My tempting and very alpha friend Sterling Quinn is someone I consider off-limits.

It's not just that we're friends, he's also cocky, confident, and British, which means he's a walking aphrodisiac.

But lately he's been giving me the look. You know the one. When he thinks I'm not paying attention, and his gaze lingers for too long.

When we start working together, that's when the sexual tension between us gets so thick, I want to hack through it with a machete. I want to make all these deep feelings I've harbored for him disappear, because there's no way this can end well.

The lines between business and pleasure become irrevocably blurred, and I'm stuck between a rock, and Sterling's very, very hard place.

Rather than keep a level head about our growing attraction, Sterling wants to go all in, showing me just how explosive we can be together.

But I've been around long enough to know that this British bad boy is more than my heart can handle. I'm not about to be cast aside like yesterday's underwear when he's done having fun.

Sterling’s never been told no, and he's not about to put his ego aside and play by my rules. But I never thought he'd fight so dirty.

*This is a spin-off from the HITCHED series, but can be read as a standalone.

The Fix UpThe Fix Up by Kendall Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Quickly I have become a fan of Kendall Ryan. Her entertaining way of blending cynicism with smart repartee and profound emotion is a breath of fresh air. The Fix Up not only presents a glimpse into Hitched's Noah and Olivia's transition into happily marital bliss, it also presents the chance to see cocky, manwhore Sterling eat crow. Hotshot divorce lawyer Sterling has money, women and notoriety, but one thing he will never have, IS A WIFE. Or will he? Camryn, is about to bring this playboy to his knees, if she doesn't lose her heart along the way. It's easy to fall in love with Ms. Ryan's characters. A short but sweet, sexy treat.

Bound to Submit (Blasphemy, #1)Bound to Submit by Laura Kaye

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Laura Kaye is not afraid to delve inside the human psyche. Some of her best stories tackle tough and controversial subjects. Bound to Submit is her latest. Kenna is a complex character. Having endured the tragedies of war and a career ending injury, she shields her emotional pain. Her broken body and bruised spirit has lead her to seek out a dark avenue of expression. In order to feel alive, she thrives on the physical expression of pain. In that moment she can expose herself without the prying eyes and the heartbreaking looks. Griffin is no white knight. He has his own demons to contend with, but nothing hurts him more than the shell that Kenna has become. The distance between them is like a chasm. Heartache broke them apart, can tragedy heal the rift? There is no black and white with Bound to Submit. The story is designed on feelings and the power they have. Disturbing, sensual, tragic, inspiring -there is no halfway with Kenna and Griffin.

They say that good girls like bad boys, and this was especially true for Pearl Stone. A child born of privilege to a drug baron and reputed killer known in the streets as Big Stone.

Although the flashy, fast-paced nature of the streets calls to Pearl, she’s been brought up to look but not touch. But when a young hustler named Diamonds crawls up from the swamps of Louisiana and sets up shop in New York City, everything Pearl was taught flies out the window.

Raised in the wild and schooled on the mean streets of New Orleans, Diamonds is no stranger to hard times and is willing to do whatever it takes to stay above the poverty line, including kill. When a robbery turned mass murder goes wrong, Diamonds is forced to flee New Orleans and lands in New York where he meets Pearl, and for the first time finds something he craves more than wealth and power…love.

As the stakes get higher, Diamonds has to push away his past if he’s to grab hold of his future—but by doing so, will he show Pearl that all that glitters isn’t gold?

 Diamonds and PearlDiamonds and Pearl by K'wan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Diamonds and Pearl is real. The reality is that regardless of race or social class, circumstances like Diamonds are more prevalent than people choose to except. What's even more upsetting is that these issues are betrayed as black ones, but are statistically universal. Pearl has the life of a princess, but it's built on the backs of murder and tragedy. Diamonds is looking for a way to survive in a world that's closing in on him. What K'wan did was put a face and a voice to situations that are being ignored. How can you not respect that? In order to understand where we're going, we have to explore we've been.
