Caged by Bella Matthews

 

I know I can trust him with my life, but can I trust him with my heart?

Caged, an all-new heat-filled, friends-to-lovers, forced proximity, MMA romance from USA Today bestselling author Bella Matthews is live now!

Why are the cocky ones always the hardest to resist?

Because this man . . . this man is temptation personified.
He’s six feet, four inches of rock-solid, golden muscles that are inked to perfection and proudly displayed every time he steps into the cage. And I’m the idiot who agreed to stay with him for the next few days.

Hudson “The King” Kingston knew he had a fight coming up when he risked himself to save me. How could I say no when he needed a friend to help him out?
Because that’s exactly what we’ve always been—friends.

Friends who flirt.
Friends who tease.
Friends who never cross that line.
Ever.

The problem is the more time we spend together, the more things shift between us.
But no matter how much I wish he could be my first, he’s never been a relationship guy,
and I refuse to settle for anything less.

I know I can trust him with my life, but can I trust him with my heart?

AUTHOR BIO


Elle Nicoll is a British, ex long-haul flight attendant and mum of two.

She writes sweet, but dirty, contemporary romance novels, all based around love.

Not all the men she writes will be rich alphas. Not all the women will be sassy. Just like we are all different, they will be too.

But she hopes they will feel real. Flawed, insecure, broken maybe. But also warm, considerate and loyal. Any elements that you think of when you consider the people you know.

Because no one is perfect.

When Elle isn't writing or falling for another new book boyfriend she is trying to look like a parent who knows what they're actually doing. That, or staring at the sky day-dreaming and running another book idea by her husband, who has perfected his 'listening with interest' face.

It means the world to Elle that you're considering reading her stories, and she loves to hear from readers.

As Hadley and Bennett close in on their enemy, they fight hard against their overwhelming attraction. She’s been burned before but the hot billionaire is getting under her skin.

The Wicked Truth by Melissa Foster

 


The Wicked Truth by Melissa Foster is now live!



What happens when you’re not looking for love, but it walks in the door?


Madigan Wicked’s heart is not up for grabs. She’s been there, done that, and she’s not going back for seconds. She pours her heart and soul into her family, her greeting card line, puppetry, and storytelling performances. But she’s not opposed to having a night of fun, and the gruff, sinfully hot, definitely-not-looking-for-love mysterious stranger she runs into at a bar might be just the right man to enjoy it with.


Ex-con Tobias Riggs has lost enough for one lifetime. The only family member in his corner doesn’t remember him, and the people who he thought would always be in his life, walked away. He’s just trying to make it through each day, and the last thing he’s looking for is any sort of connection. When chemistry ignites with the snarky, sexy storyteller, with lips he can’t stop thinking about, he gives in to a night of passion.


Though neither is open to love, it’s been known to bully its way into even the most resisting hearts. But can it survive the wicked truth of Tobias’s dark past?

Pop Smoke by Giulia Lagomarsino

 

Title: Pop Smoke: An OPS Protector Romance Novel
Series: Owens Protective Services Book 4
Author: Giulia Lagomarsino
Genre: Protector/Alpha Romance
Release Date: November 28, 2022
Cover Design: T.E. Black Designs
Model: Guy Higgins




⁠"This is one of those amazing books to read but a test to review without spoilers. There are so many secrets revealed, characters questioned, danger, action, and plenty of steam." ~ Goodreads Reviewer⁠
“OMG!!!! The twist in the story. Really blew my mind!! Absolutely loved this story!! The things I found out in pop smoke really was amazing and answered so many questions.” ~ Goodreads Reviewer


I am the shadow that moves in the night, the one that has you constantly looking over your shoulder.
I work within the bounds of the law when it suits me, but make one wrong move and I’ll throw the rule book out the window to end you.
My job requires a certain level of deception, an ability to put aside feelings and relationships to get the job done.
I can honestly say there’s not a single person alive I wouldn’t betray for the right reasons.
It’s who I am and I can’t change.
I won’t.
But there’s one woman that threatens to break me.
I knew it the moment I met her four years ago. So young and naive, it’s easy to see how a woman like her could fall for a man like me.
She doesn’t see through the lies and manipulations.
She thinks she knows the man I am, but she only sees what I allow.
I’ve done everything in my power to keep her safe from me, but now I have to do something that could nearly gut me.
I have to betray her.
I know she’ll never forgive me, but this isn’t just about the job.
Someone’s life is at stake, and unfortunately for her, his life is one I can’t allow to slip away.
She’ll never forgive me—that’s if she lives.
And I’ll never forgive myself.
But these defining moments in life are what make us who we are.
I know I’ll always be the man that will get the job done.
No matter the cost.

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
My review:
Pop Smoke is the third book in the Owens Protective Services (OPS). I absolutely love this series! I love how the author inserts humor right in the middle of an intense action scene. One minute I was sitting on the edge of my chair then the next I was laughing so hard. The characters are hilarious, unpredictable, and swoon-worthy.

This was not my favorite book in the series, and I think it was due to the characters lacking growth. Rafe was such an enigma in the previous books and only looked out for himself. He was an enemy one minute and a friend the next. His relationship with Cash is finally revealed in this book and it added a twist to the story. I still enjoyed the book but not as much as the previous ones.

Each book in the series picks up where the previous book ends so they must be read in order to make sense. After starting the first book, I spent my entire weekend binge-reading the whole series. I highly recommend this series if you like intense action scenes, humor, romance, and off-the-wall characters.

I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.




“Thumper, down!” I shouted, just as I fired a round into his bionic foot, forcing him to his knees as he narrowly avoided a bullet to the head.

“What the fuck? Did you just shoot me, boss?”

“It was your foot or your head,” I retorted, returning my gaze to the tangos still in the building.

“You’re paying for my new foot,” he grumbled, hobbling over to join the rest of his team.

“Send me the bill,” I muttered, already focusing on the remaining tangos.

“Eli, how many more kids need evac?”

The Ditty Boppers had been tasked with slipping in through the basement window and freeing the kids inside. We didn’t have an exact number when we started this mission, so we couldn’t be certain we had all the manpower or transportation needed.

“Boss, we’ve got a problem,” his voice rang through comms. “We’ve got about twenty that require medevac ASAP.”

“Negative. There aren’t enough birds in the sky.” I switched targets, firing again as I laid out the next part of the plan. “Fox, you copy?”

“You got someone for me to kill, boss?” he said cheerily.

“Move to extraction point B. Kid gloves, Fox.”

“Boss,” he groaned.

“Dash, take control. Rae, make sure Fox doesn’t fuck this up.”

She sighed heavily as I heard her on the move. “When is that not my job?”

I grinned and moved to the next target. I couldn’t see Jack anymore, or the rest of his team. With any luck, they made it out of the building and were aiding in the rescue of the kids.

“Boss, we’ve got movement to the south headed your way.”

“How far out?”

“Two minutes. Coming in hot, boss.”

“Do you have the shot?”

“Negative. Too much tree cover.”

I shifted to my next target and took aim. “And you didn’t see them? Were you too busy vomiting?”

“I told you I don’t like flying,” he snapped. “I would move if I were you.”

“One more minute,” I said, scoping out my next target. 

“Boss, you really need to—”

But I tuned him out and returned my attention to the remaining tangos still threatening to destroy our operation. One by one, I picked them off, missing one by just an inch and alerting him to my location. He quickly ducked and ran for cover, hiding just a few feet from the entrance to the basement. If he made it down there, my men might be injured, along with those kids. Men did stupid shit when they were cornered.

“Boss!” Scottie was yelling in my ear, but I ignored him and kept my focus. 

“Come on, you fucker,” I whispered, eyeing the man in my scope. I needed him to move just a little to the right. 

“Thirty seconds!” Scottie warned.

The man moved and I took the shot, sending the bullet right through his skull. I watched as his head snapped back and he crumpled to the ground. Removing Sally 2 from my stand, I shoved my rifle in my bag and tossed it over my shoulder, abandoning the stand to whoever came through here. Taking off through the trees, I hauled ass toward the extraction point, but quickly realized I was already too late. 

The tangos on my ass were closing in quick, and heading to the extraction point would only put more lives in danger. I made a snap decision and bolted to the left, making sure to leave an obvious path in my wake. Making enough noise to raise the dead, I grinned when I heard them following.

“Lock, I’ve got tangos on my ass. I’m leading them away. It should buy you enough time to get out.”

“Negative, boss. We’ve got too many injured.”

“How much time do you need?”

“Boss, I don’t like where you’re going with this.”

As I ran through the trees, I knew it didn’t really matter if he liked it or not. I had boxed myself in, and there was no way I was getting out of this on my own. But I could lay down fire and draw their attention from what was going on at the warehouse.

“I’ll distract them. When you’re out, I’ll haul ass to the third extraction point.”

“You’ll never make it there,” he warned.

I grinned, even though he couldn’t see. “Watch me.”









I'm a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, "No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book." I didn't think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn't already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven't been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
