Supermodel, Liv Summers, better known as Phaedra Winters to her hometown, is esteemed by the industry and her fans for her flawless beauty and matchless runway and shoot presence. Ten years in the limelight and hiding her true identity has kept her from getting close to anyone other than her assistant. Landing gigs, ripping runways, and nailing ads is never a problem for her, but keeping her identity intact and ignoring her growing attraction for a certain photographer is turning out to be the hardest parts of her career to date.


World-renowned photographer, Parker Anderson, has his annual shoot and exhibit coming up during New York’s fashion week. While he’s known to make any subject or setting he captures come alive, no ordinary model will do for him. There’s just one hiccup to making the concept for his annual spread transition from a dream to reality; Liv Summers won’t agree to do it. Not only is he pressed to get Liv to do the shoot, but in spite of vowing never to date another model, the pull towards her is too strong to deny. Will he find the right angle to win her over for the shoot and capture her heart?

“I would never seek to embarrass you.” His Words and the sincerity in his voice touched her.

Hues is the type of story that all of us are all too familiar with whether we admit it or not. We might not be “supermodel, drop dead gorgeous,” but we have all seeked someone that would look past our exterior and really see us. Anita Davis puts a fresh spin on an old narrative.

Davis’ writing style makes the story seem believable and extremely relatable. Hues is a great illustration on facing your insecurities and finding someone that truly loves you flaws and all. And, more importantly, it is about being your true self and accepting it. This is the second book I’ve read by Davis and it definitely won’t be my last!

Known for her romance novels, Dangerous Destiny is Sean’s first venture into the romantic suspense genre. Domestic violence is a serious topic and while it was respectfully discussed the writer could’ve delved a little deeper describing the backstory and the lasting effects on the main character’s life. This book was quite touching when you think about the lengths that someone will go to keep them and their loved ones safe and to know that there are some good people that will help along the way.
Dangerous Destiny was a little far-fetched but it was still entertaining. It’s always neat to see authors push themselves and try something outside of their comfort zone. Young is an excellent romance novelist and it is my hope that she will continue writing in this new genre!

The Playmaker Series by K.L. Brady

Playmakers seriesIt’s almost fall which means football and I couldn’t think of a better want to prepare than with The Playmaker Series by K.L. Brady. Read below to learn more about the three books in this very fun series!

Her Perfect Catch

img_3371.jpgMelanie is a struggling, nerdy sports writer with the power to change Jet’s image.

Jet is a bad-boy NFL star receiver with the power to change Melanie’s career.

Dylan, Melanie’s sexy best friend, has the power to throw a monkey wrench in everybody’s plans.

When the three connect in a chance meeting at the Super Bowl, none of their lives will ever be the same.

img_3372.jpgHow could I not adore a book centered around a woman who loves football??? In typical Brady fashion, there were plenty of chuckles along the way. This is a novella so there is no need for a long drawn own review because it will tell all of the details. So, I will simply say that “Her Perfect Catch” is a quick and entertaining read that left me looking forward to the forthcoming books in the series.

The Player's Option

img_3371.jpg

C.J. is a sports agent on the rise on the heels of saving his brother’s football career, but to stay business, he needs more star clients—and he’s got his eye on the perfect pick. With his love life in a major slump, he’s got all the time in the world to entice the candidate to his side.

That is until he meets Ty Baker.

Also a sports agent, Ty reluctantly assumed leadership of her father’s sports management agency, taking over the reigns after he died to run it. But little did she know, she’d have to save it. Her father’s secret financial struggles landed her in a losing game and in desperate need of signing a superstar football player to help turn it all around.

When Ty and C.J. meet at a pro-football conference, sparks fly, and they can both see love in the end zone…until disaster strikes.

When each learns the other is trying to steal their biggest client, chaos ensues, and cut-throat competition threatens to tear them apart.

In the game of professional football, only one side can win.

Will love survive?

img_3372.jpgK.L. has done it again. I don’t know if there’s another author out there that writes as realistic dialogue as her and that’s why she is one of my favorites. I wanted so much more, but then I remembered this was a novella and promptly moved on to the last book in the series!

The Eligible Receiver

img_3371.jpg

Now that star wide receiver Jet Jamison has overcome his personal and professional struggles, he’s ready for love—but he can’t find it.

Anywhere.

Although he’s hot, successful, wealthy, and can have any woman he wants, the one he truly needs still eludes him, that is, until Veda enters his life.

She’s a school teacher, leading a small, safe life, wishing for a love that does not come with the kind of heartbreak her son’s father delivered—and yet scared to death she’s going to find it.

A chance meeting with Jet begins with a sparring match and ends with love at second sight. Jet changes her perspective and her world. But she’s got a secret that threatens to tear them apart, one that will force Jet to choose between his honor and his heart.
Which will it be? And can they live with his choice?

In the game of love, sometimes giving in is better than giving up…

img_3372.jpg“I know the feeling. At the end of the day, we all crave to be understood, right? We want someone to think enough of us to learn every mundane detail, yet still love us as we are. I’ve never had that.”

OMG, isn’t this what we all want? Someone who desires to see what lies beneath the surface and know the “real” us. I absolutely adored Jet and Veda’s story. I read two books by K.L. this weekend and I want more. I love, love, love her writing style. Romance is K.L.’s bread and butter and she is definitely better than most that write in this genre. If you’re looking for realistic situations and dialogue, then check out any of K.L.’s books. You won’t be disappointed!
