Playing Hurt by Gerald Nardella #review#
The fear and insecurity in growing up in a small town that offers little opportunity and few role models, exacerbated by an uncertain future and pressure by emotions difficult to control, inspired Gerald L. Nardella to write this novel. Life’s struggle can be lonely and painful. Gerald grew up in a small town, experiencing firsthand the insecurities from living in a broken home. Those insecurities still haunt him to this day.
When a blast from Deanie’s past shows up the troubles multiply.
This is a really good look back into the past, the characters are well written and the story keeps you interested from start to finish. I really enjoyed it and would recommend this book to anyone 13 plus. This book is an OnlineBookClub.org Book of the Day.
Check Mate by Sheri Lyn #review
Tucker “Rook” Jameson is having an interesting week. First, he finds a body, then he finds his mate… the new Sheriff. Someone has decided to make the pack of Blue Creek pay, but for what is the question.
Sheriff West Graelin moved to Blue Creek for a change of pace. Instead in his first week, he meets a naked man over a dead body who tempts him beyond his ability to think straight. Now the bodies are piling up and their killer is taunting them.
It’s time to team up in more than one way. Love, lust, laughter, friendship and murder…It’s just another day in this small town.
“Hello?” A strong masculine voice called out, “I was told someone was here waiting.”
“I’m here.” Rook responded as he buttoned his jeans and stepped out of the shadows of the overhanging tree.
“And you are?” The voice asked with authority ringing in every word.
Rook smiled softly. “The guy you’re looking for.”
“I’m the new Sheriff. Are you the one who found the body?”
“You smell amazing and yes I did.”
The sheriff cocked one eyebrow and smirked slightly. “Excuse me? Did you just say I smelled good?”
“Amazing, but yeah.”
“No, I haven’t.” The sheriff shrugged.

Collared by the Cowboy by Susan Arden
Collared by the Cowboy
by Susan Arden
GENRE: Erotic Romance (Western)
Bound and determined to break free of a small town, Mia isn’t about to let a little thing like a bondage club or a cocky cowboy stand in her way. Not when it means unearthing the truth. Undercover, she enters an elite world defined by sex, subs, and power. What can happen? It’s just for a night…
Out of necessity, Brandon guards his privacy. Tall, dark, and frowning–he gives Mia a run for her money when she almost blows her cover. He’s one hot piece with a very dominating streak. Think hair pulling, panty-dropping! He’s gorgeous, built, and makes her want things. Dirty, dark, and not part of Mia’s plan.
Brandon is down for the chase, and catches the dark-eyed beauty in a lie. The little researcher needs to be taught a lesson. Pretty with curves galore, yet it’s her smart-mouth that forces his hand. If Mia wants to learn about his club, he’ll teach her every dirty detail of what it means to surrender. To him.
Their raw chemistry is undeniable. Mia is more than a tantalizing and temporary diversion. She becomes the woman he can’t let go.
As Brandon and Mia explore falling in love, they reveal their darkest secrets. From the shadows, a stalker with a taste for revenge is just waiting for an opportunity to strike.
EXCERPTS (Please choose only ONE to use with your post):
Little Red Dress
Dani called from down the hall. “Did you find a pair?”
“Operation stiletto was a six-inch success.” Rolling onto her elbow, Mia snagged the bag and pulled out the shoebox. In a few hours, she’d hit the doors of the S & L in these unless she took a spill—
“Here. Knock ‘em dead.” Dani commanded her attention with an outstretched hand. Over her roommate’s finger hung a hanger, and she waved a tiny scrap of red leather in Mia’s direction.
“Interesting. But no.” Her brow knitted as she stared at the crisscrossing laces of the tiny corset. “When I said outfit, I was thinking something larger than a rubber band.”
“This dress will help you fit in.” Tutting, her roommate thrust the fetish dress into her hands. “Thank me later when you land your first job.”
“By chance does that job involve a street corner?”
“Funny,” Dani replied. “You’re stalling.”
“You do realize that I’m the one who’s gotta fit into this little number. Operative word: little.” Mia rose and held up the dress probably two sizes too small. “Just where am I supposed to fit my boobs?”
“Okay, I can see you’re going to overanalyze this into the ground.” Dani snapped her fingers. “Let’s go. Time to change. Stat.”
Rather than waste time arguing, she’d just try on the dress and make her point when a body part or two sprang loose.

Love and Famiglia by Lyssa Layne #Review
lifetime! Do you know how many aspiring fashion designers have the chance to
build their own line of clothing at only twenty-four?”
Yes, there’s definitely desperation in my voice, but there’s nothing left. I’ve
begged, I’ve pleaded, I’ve cried, but nothing has broken my father’s old-school
Italian demeanor. This is a last ditch effort to convince him to sign off on
the trust my Noni DiDominzio left for me so I can fulfill my career aspiration
of my own women’s fashion wear. My boss is moving to France and has offered me
to take over his line, giving me free reign on designs. All I have to do is
come up with three months rent and it’s mine.

look at how your siblings used their inheritance. Their money was used to buy a
house, a car, even start a business which is how Noni intended for you children
to use it.”
head and let out an exasperated sigh. Lifting my head up to look at my father,
I take a deep breath, knowing that I’m walking on thin ice. My father, Andrea
DiDominzio, is Italian through and through. He’s got the full head of dark
hair, the olive skin tone, brown eyes, and the man sticks strongly to his
Italian beliefs despite the change in times. My siblings and I look exactly
like our father, except for Antonia, my middle sister, who has blue eyes.
However, we all share the loud, feisty attitudes which we’ve inherited from our
father, his father, and his father’s father. Being the baby of the bunch, I
have to fight louder than the others to be heard, but it still doesn’t mean I
get my way.
I nod, “I would be doing the exact same as Carmine. He used his money to buy
the nightclub. I’ll be starting my career with Noni’s money. Papa, this is just
the beginning of what I can do with my skills.”
in his plush leather chair on the other side of his desk, his fingers steepled
together. He’s not smiling with his lips but I can see it in his eyes.
“Francesca, you know I don’t agree with your choice of profession and I can
assure you Noni wouldn’t either. When you turn twenty-five, the money is yours
so you can do as you please then.”

like a child not getting their way.

place for you to meet a good Italian man to settle down with.”
The man is seriously smirking at me while he stomps all over my dreams. I’m not
even going to entertain his suggestion. Turning my back, I grab my jacket off
the chair and mutter under my breath in Italian.
“Francesca, ladies don’t speak that way. I’ll see you in a few days at our
Christmas celebration weekend.
let out a scream. My father is infuriating but I’m not giving up on my dream.
One way or another, I will have my clothes in a show in New York Fashion Week.
Just wait, Papa, I’ll make you proud despite not having your blessing.
I must warn you, though. These novellas deal with some difficult themes such as domestic abuse, violence and self-doubt, among other things. I must confess I did shout at some characters for withstanding so many hardships on their own. Nevertheless, the book has some very romantic, sweet and swoon worthy scenes that you don’t really want to miss. Now, regarding the last sister, well, she will be loved by all those that like the friends/acquaintances to lovers trope.
Another character worthy to be mentioned is the heir of the DiDominzio family, Carmine. I loved he cares so much about his family. He exudes this protective alpha male aura that will grab the female attention. Honestly, it is quite surprising that the author added the brother’s story. It is quite popular to focus in the story of the sister’s. Nonetheless, it is quite refreshing to hear the make point of view of the life in the DiDomizio family and all the expectations and responsibilities it entails. After all, who said that fairy tales, even sexy and dangerous ones, don’t always need to focus or start with a damsel in distress.

CASE Revelations by Savannah Verte
Lessons from The Great Depression make an encore performance at the Hamilton property as they try to stay alive…and sane. Where were you when the world went dark and everything stopped?
Awesome story telling by this author. College students dropped into a post-apocalyptic style situation. She gets you involved immediately and keeps you turning the page with action and a connection to the characters. Realistic scenarios and responses make you feel like you are right there with them from page one.
The ending was interesting. It could easily be an opening for a series, but at the same time, it is definitely a stand alone story. As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock, I gave it a full five hearts. Good for any age, I think some of the younger teens would not only enjoy this but maybe it would open their eyes to how good we have things and how easily it could all go away.
