For as long as he can remember, Nate’s dreamed of being an MMA fighter. Nothing is going to stand in his way, and no one is going to distract him. Everything is going according to plan when Natalie comes along. Even though he wasn’t looking for love, Nate can’t help falling fast and hard. Smart, sweet and supportive, she seems too good to be true, but it’s actually the other way around. Nate isn’t good enough for her, and he’s keeping a secret that will change everything between them. One day, she’ll see the truth inside of him. Until then, Nate’s determined to keep Natalie in his life for as long as he can.
This book is an 86K word novel with no cliffhanger and a guaranteed HEA. Although it’s the first in a series, each book can be read as a stand-alone.

Samantha Blundell
Loved this story!
Going into this story after reading the blurb I went into the story expecting one thing, but what I got was completely different! This story was wonderfully written and touched on a subject that is not talked about very often. It was like a breath of fresh air, and I absolutely loved it! There was a twist I just didn’t see coming!
The characters within the story were all great. I loved how they were not perfect, And that they all seemed to have a little secret, I really want to find out what each of their secrets are! Nate and Natalie were a great couple. I really liked how Natalie was so supportive of Nate. The book had many laugh out loud moments for me which was great! I love a book that can make me laugh. It was also quite emotional, made me tear up a couple of times. I could feel Nate’s anxiety through the book, I just wanted to reach inside and tell him that everything was going to be ok!
The book had a very in-depth look into the MMA world. I could see that the author really researched this subject, I may have learned a thing or two myself about the industry. I also really loved that the cover model has a story of his own to tell! I really loved that he is on the cover of this fantastic book.
You shouldn’t feel a need to hide who you are and this story gives hope to others who may find themselves in similar situations. This is a beautiful story of finding your way and finding that person who will be with you through thick and thin, they are always by your side and loving you unconditionally. I can’t wait to read the stories that will come next in this series.

After being released as Martin’s submissive, Kaia discovers Bobby felt the same as she did but can love alone keep them together?

I loved everything about this one, and I want more! There’s a huge surprise in here that I WON’T spoil but it shocked everything in me to read it. I had no clue this book was going there. Kaia and Martin and Bobby are the perfect triangle. That Martin needed. His ass whipped for his mess! Bobby was on my bad list for a minute, but he pulled it in. The part where she confesses something to Bobby had me confused, but soon I realized that she did do something horrible to him first. It took me a second because I can be thick at times but yeah, I saw her wrongdoings too. This is a great read, and I really have no clue why Ryanne Anthony isn’t more famous. Can’t wait for her next book!!!!!!!!

Jenn Z @ That’s What She’s Reading
Delightful introduction to a new series!
I’m a huge fan of cozy mysteries featuring libraries and librarians, so when I saw this new series pop up, I was so excited to get started. Pat is a law librarian, a specialty within the library sciences that provides a perfect background for introducing an amateur sleuth for cozy mysteries, which I’m surprised hasn’t been featured more!
Despite losing her dream job, Pat is resourceful and quickly lands as a private investigator for the defense attorney representing the accused. It was incredibly entertaining to watch Pat use her skills and resources from her previous job to navigate her way through the investigation. While her attitude and interactions with others could use some fine-tuning, her amateur sleuthing was entirely believable and ultimately quite charming!
The mystery is riddled with various motives and entertaining suspects just quirky enough to create a well-plotted mystery anchored in doubt that has to be read to the end in order to find out who the culprit really is. The end was surprising, yet strangely satisfying given the circumstances of this mystery and one that I haven’t come across before.
This was a delightfully fast-paced and well written cozy mystery that I look forward to continuing on with and highly recommended if you’re a fan of bookish cozies!

newmagicofmurder teaserWhen his partner is discovered in a frozen alley with eight bullets in his chest, Niagara Falls Police Detective Roger Frey swears vengeance. But Detective Chief Woodward has forbidden him or anyone else on the detective squad to work the case. Emlyn Goode knows Roger will disobey his boss, which will cost him his job and his freedom. Because she cares for him more than she’ll admit, she needs to stop him. Desperate, she can think of but one way.
Emlyn recently learned she’s a direct descendant of a woman hanged as a witch in 1692. She has a book filled with arcane recipes and chants passed down through her family. Possessed of, or perhaps by a vivid imagination, she intends to use these to solve Jimmy’s murder before Roger takes revenge on the killer. But she’s new to this “witch thing,” and needs help from her friend Rebecca Nurse, whose ancestor also took a short drop from a Salem tree. Rebecca’s not much better at deciphering the ancient directions, and while the women stumble over spell after spell, the number possible killers grows. When Chief Woodward’s wife is shot and a bottle bomb bursts through Emlyn’s window, it becomes clear she’s next on the killer’s list.
