Think you know what it's like being a baller's girl? 
You don't. 
My fairy tale is upside down. 
A happily never after. 
I kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud. 
I was a fool, and his love - fool's gold. 
Now there's a new player in the game, August West. 
One of the NBA's brightest stars. 
Fine. Forbidden. 
He wants me. I want him. 
But my past, my fraudulent prince, just won't let me go.

“Iris?” August’s frown, the concern on his face, in his voice, remind me where I am. 

“Baby, you okay?” 

I blink down at him dumbly, swallowing my tears, eating my memories whole and digesting a nightmare from long ago. I nod, my lips a cold, wobbly curve. 

“Kiss me,” he whispers, his eyes so tender, so intent. I remember a magical night under the stars, under a streetlight on the eve of greatness. A night filled with laughter and confidences, pregnant with promise. And I see him so clearly, my prince, asking for a kiss. 

And I do. 

I kiss him like the world might end tonight because I’ll never take this for granted. Not his kindness, when I’ve known cruelty all too well. Not his tenderness, when I’ve been handled roughly in the past. Not his love, when I’ve been possessed and owned and mistreated. 

He thaws me with his kiss, my prince, and I melt into him. We’re chest to chest, with August’s number crushed between us. I take his cock in my hand, aligning our bodies, and two become one in a carnal slide of flesh. I anchor myself by my elbows hooked around his neck, and we kiss until I’m dizzy and our breaths tangle in a cloud of bliss. Under the jersey, his palm spans my back, digging into the naked flesh as our hips lock and roll and grind. My body clenches around him, and we pray, we curse, we moan, we mate like our bodies were made for this moment. 

Ours is a love that reimagines—that peels back the sky at high noon searching for the stars, collecting them like shells in a bucket. We bathe in stardust, drink from the Milky Way, and dance on the moon. We pierce the firmament, peer into infinity, and tread on time and space. There is no before. There is no after. Now gives birth to forever. This moment may die, but this love never will. Time is not a line. It’s a circle, and we, August and Iris, we stand at the center.


Praise for Long Shot: 
 "This story was brutal truth wrapped in hope, courage and unflinching love. It's a must read. It's a STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND READ THIS NOW kind of book. Don't hold your breath, this story will steal it from you." - J. Sterling, NYT Bestselling Author

Whenever I read a book written by Kennedy Ryan, I know without a doubt that it will make me feel all kinds of emotions. Her writing style is sublime and her characters are unforgettable! Long Shot is a standalone Basketball Romance from the Hoops Series. In this book, we meet August West and Iris DuPree. Believe me when I say that these two characters will own a piece of your heart from the moment you meet them!

The blurb says pretty much everything you need to know about this book. Irish DuPree's journey is one she never expected. Her world turned upside down from one day to the next. People are not always what they seem and Iris is learning this in the most heartbreaking way possible. August West is like a breath of fresh air in her life and a soothing balm to her soul. August knows that he should stay away from Iris. She's forbidden, but that won't stop him when it comes to the girl that owns his heart. He will always be waiting for Iris. No matter how long it takes.

This was such an unforgettable love story. From the moment Iris and August were introduced in the story, I was cheering for them to find the HEA that they both deserved. Life has thrown obstacles their way non-stop and to see their love bloom in the middle of a storm was both mesmerizing and heart-breaking. They felt a connection on that first night that they met and it never stopped growing. I love how much they complete each other and lift each other up in the most beautiful way. Iris is a warrior that will leave you cheering for her from beginning to end and August is a protective hero that will melt your heart!

Prepare a box of tissues because this story will bring you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. You will cry and cheer for Iris and August. Their love story will linger with you for days. I loved all the supporting cast of characters in this story. I'm really excited that there will be another addition to this series following a completely different couple. That also means that we get to reunite with Iris and August again. Woohoo!!! If you have not read a book by Kennedy Ryan, you're seriously mission out! I highly recommend Long Shot.


I give, Long Shot, by Kennedy Ryan, 4.5 emotional, poignant, passionate, page-turning, never stop fighting for what you want stars!

I’m not a good man, and I’ve never pretended to be. I don’t believe in goodness or God or any happy ending that isn’t paid for in advance. 

What do I believe in? Money. Sex. Macallan 18. 

They have words for men like me—playboy. Womanizer. Skirt chaser. 

My brother used to be a priest, and he only has one word for me.

Excerpt 18+:

“Zenny,” I mumble against her lips, some valiant part of me recognizing that this is far, far beyond the kiss she asked for, and also recognizing that I’m going to come all over the inside of my Hugo Boss suit pants if she keeps it up. Even through the clothes, I can feel her heat, her shameless rolls hinting at where she goes soft and wet between her legs. 

Fuck, I want to see it. I want to see her pussy. It’s suddenly all I can think about, all I can want or crave, just one glimpse, just a peek. 

“I want to see your cunt,” I say hoarsely, lifting my head. 

“My…cunt?” She says the word like she’s never said it out loud before. 

“Yeah.” My voice is so ragged right now, so desperate, and fuck, I’ve never felt this frantic before. Like I’ll actually combust if I don’t get this one thing, this one small sight of her secret place. 

She lets out a shaky breath, her hand dropping from my lapel to her skirt, which she slowly rucks up to her waist as I devour her lips once more, as I bury my face in her neck and kiss every sliver of skin exposed above her collar. I bite at her ear, at her jaw, my hand finding hers as it pulls her skirt up, so that I’m helping her do it, that we’re doing it together, this forbidden act, this forbidden revelation. 

Her forbidden body. 

That word, forbidden, spikes through my mind, bringing with it equal spikes of lust and fear. Because yes, it’s fucking hot that I shouldn’t be kissing her, I shouldn’t be begging to see her most secret place, my hand shouldn’t be covering hers as it slides up her thigh—but it’s also bad. Bad even for Sean Bell. 

Bad, bad, bad.


Holy smokes!!! Sinner was an intense, deliciously sexy and a provocative reading journey!  If you are new to this series, you don't need to start with Priest to follow Sean and Zenny's story. I highly recommend the first two books in this series, but you won't feel lost if you start with Sinner. It will make you want to read them even more!

Sean Bell is a sinner with a dimpled smile and perfect hair. He's not afraid to get what he wants and that means even what is forbidden. Zenny Iverson knows that asking her brother's best friend for one night of passion is dangerous. He's older, more experienced and a temptation that makes her crave more. Zenny's proposition takes Sean by surprise and the lines between them begging to blur. She takes his breath away. Sean's world is about to be turned upside down by the only person who can take his control away.

I don't want to spoil anything by saying more about the story. Every reader needs to discover Zenny and Sean just like I did. The connection between Zenny and Sean was insanely hot! Your clothes will melt off your body during this reading journey!!! Sean Bell is one dirty talker you do not want to miss! *Fans Face* This author wrote some pretty steamy scenes, but emotional ones as well. You could feel the walls around Sean's heart break one by one from the moment he reconnected with Zenny. She made him want more of life. Zenny was an intriguing heroine from the moment she was introduced in the story. I loved how she pushed all of Sean's buttons and how she decided which path her life would take.

If you have not read this author's work, you're seriously missing out! Sierra Simone's writing style will captivate you from beginning to end! Her characters will have you cheering for them and their story will linger with you for days. Sinner was a passionate, emotional and page-turning reading journey!


I give, Sinner, by Sierra Simone, 4 captivating, taboo, deliciously erotic, intense stars!

Blackest Gold Series on Goodreads:


Oh my world!!!!

This was my first time reading a book by author R. Scarlett and it won't be my last! Lex and Beau's intense and passionate love story gave me all the feels! I have been looking for a new paranormal series to read and I’m so happy that this author was recommended to me. I’m jumping of joy knowing that I have more books to read from her. I will without a doubt read the four books from the Blackest Gold Series. When Sinners Kneel is a spin-off from that series and I fell in love with those characters so I will visit them very soon to know where everything started for them. Even if the characters from the previous series were involved in this story, I did not feel lost at all. 

The Blackest Gold World series starts off with a bang! A soul eater falls for a heartless demon? Sold!!!! Lex Harvey and Beau Knight’s worlds collide when she goes to look for her missing friend at The Pit. Falling for his brother’s friend was not part of the plan. Keeping her safe was. Will Beau be able to keep his distance from her or will he fall into temptation again? 

I read WSK in one sitting! I simply could not put it down! From the moment Lex and Beau came face-to-face, I was on the edge of my seat and I was fanning my face because HOLY CRAPOLA these two!!!! The sexual tension was setting my world on fire and I was hanging on R. Scarlett's every word. Beau is one dirty talker that you do not want to miss! *Fans face again* 

These two characters are perfectly imperfect for each other. Beau might be a heartless demon, but the way he loves Lex?? Gah!!!! *Swoon* He fell so hard for her and she made him want to feel again. Lex could taste every emotion that Beau was feeling. She’s a soul eater and she completely indulge herself when it came to Beau. She found the connection to his broken soul and she wanted more than anything to set him free. She’s a fierce and strong heroine and one I loved to cheer for! When Sinners Kneel is a new adult paranormal romance and it can be read as a standalone. I highly recommend it!


I give, When Sinners Kneel, by R. Scarlett, 4.5 intense, sexy, heart-pounding, page-turning stars!

About the Author:

R. Scarlett lives in a small quaint town in Southern Ontario, Canada and has an unhealthy obsession with mythology and romance. From studying English literature and minoring in History, she loves losing herself in a good book and snuggling up to her Brittany Spaniel. 

When she's not writing or plotting a delicious novel, she can be found hanging out with friends and family, going on long car rides, exploring small towns, or watching reruns of Sex and the City.

I knew something was wrong the second she walked in the door tonight; I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was.   

Same hair color. 
Same legs. 
Same face.   

Except…I look harder. 
At the small dimple beneath her lip that wasn’t there the last time we went out. And her laugh—that laugh isn’t as loud.   

This isn’t the girl I’ve gone out with the past few weeks. 
It’s her twin sister, and they’ve switched places on me.   

Only I’m not quite ready to let them switch back.

Switch Hitter is the perfect novella if you want to discover Sara Ney’s writing style. She is in my top five favorite author list and I devour every single book she writes. She always delivers all the feels when it comes to an unforgettable reading escape. 

Switch Hitter was first featured in the Team Player Anthology. This novella is a great introduction to Sara Ney's Jock Hard Series. We get a little sneak peek into that world and OMG!!! I am so excited to read the first full-length novel of that series. Even if I read Switch Hitter in a couple of hours, It felt like I was reading one of her full-length novels because I really got to connect with the characters. Amelia and Dante will have you cheering for them in no time! 

Switch Hitter is a fun, fast-paced and swoony novella about twins switching places and a hero who plays along in this little switcheroo game. Lucy's dating life is super busy so she asks her twin sister, Amelia, to go on a date with Dante. Amelia is not too happy about accepting this request, but she does it anyway. She gets in all kinds of delicious trouble when she starts connecting with Dante. Amelia is the quiet and shy twin. Will Dante fall for her? 

This was such a fun novella! Amelia and Dante’s chemistry was AMAZING!! Sara Ney’s characters are always unforgettable and her stories always leave me with a smile on my face. Be prepared to swoon big time when Dante talks Spanish to Amelia. *Ovaries dancing the conga* The Jock Hard Series is off to a phenomenal stars! I can’t wait for more!!!
