RELEASE BLITZ: Beyond the Bases by Kaylee Ryan

Title: Beyond the Bases
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: New Adult

Release Date: July 31, 2018


What happens when you want more in life than just running
the bases? 
You hang out at home plate and stop playing the field.

He's sexy and irresistible. I've done my best to ignore the
magnetism that flows between us. I don't need complications in my life. I can't get wrapped up in his world, the last thing I need is to get attached to a professional athlete. I don’t have time for heartbreak.

Something about her pulls me in. I want to get to know her. I want a chance to show her I'm more than just my career, my paycheck. I'm the man for her. I know I am. No matter how much she resists this connection between us. It doesn't change the fact that she’s my grand slam.

Sport romances aren’t typically my thing… however; Ms. Kaylee Ryan’s swoonable characters are my thing! She always creates the best male characters that I’ll continue to follow her work. I think what I just really love is the solid family foundation here… the friends and family. The tight group of people that try and lift each other up in life, not down. It’s refreshing to me. I really could not get enough of Easton. I love when a man knows what he wants and goes for it and that’s just what he did. I also kind of have a thing for insta-love… I mean, who doesn’t want to be swept off their feet?

Ha! Of course, Easton finds the one lady that doesn’t want to be swept up into his charm… Larissa. He’s up for the challenge though and pursues her with a vengeance that I totally fell for! He was a sweet guy! Seriously, he was kind and didn’t mind putting his feelings and heart out there! Once Easton and Paisley hit if off…  I was done for. My heart could NOT take this love! I was a pile on the floor! This was seriously one of the most amazing and sweetest single parent stories I have read… and I’ve been ALL over them lately… it’s been my thing lately!

So this was good and I love the way Kaylee Ryan tells a story. It’s written in such a way that you can tell Ms. Ryan’s heart and soul is in the story. I think my main issue was I wanted a bit more angst… a bit more of conflict. I like the sweetness, please don’t get me wrong but I wanted a bit more pushback… just something more.

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

Sometimes you need to let yourself fall…
Recently divorced Sienna Porter has the life she’s supposed to. A house, career, even a hot young contractor working upstairs to distract her. At thirty-eight, she’s entitled to a little fun (according to her best friend, anyway).

Pain, though— it’s so clever in the way it infects hope and poisons happiness.

Jace Beckett should be flying high. Talented, driven, and disciplined, he’s far beyond his twenty-three years. He’s used to the game, the attention his looks and highly-trained body get from women. Doesn’t mean he likes to play.

Doesn’t mean his own secrets aren’t intent on tearing him down.

It’s just a fling. Sexy. Temporary. It’s not supposed to last. It’s not supposed to transform into love. It’s certainly not supposed to become the air you breathe and everything worth fighting for.

About the Author:
I’m a writer, musician, and cat lover. I also have an alternative music obsession. Seriously, it’s a real problem.
I write what needs to come out, whether it’s pain, tears, or laughter. I write people and relationships, about the beauty and horror of what we do to ourselves and each other. I write Love. Vengeance. Compassion. Cruelty. Trust. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Darkness, and the incredible way humans destroy and heal each other.
I like to eradicate barriers, refusing to be confined by the laws of physics or limitations of reality. I will befriend a vast population of possibilities and introduce them in ways that might surprise you.

“Revenge Love is the perfect mix of imperfection, friendship, love, revenge, and angst. A flawless book mastered by Kata Cuic that I loved completely. Emma and Jason’s revenge is your 2018 necessity!” - Len Webster, bestselling author of Sometimes Moments.

Revenge is sweet.

Emma Hastings has tried all her life to fit in. Throwing off her awkward high school years to become a member of a prestigious sorority at Wellbridge University, she has her sisters at her side, and the future spread out before her for the taking. Her senior year of college should be filled with parties, studying, and sweating between the sheets before she goes to medical school.

One night at a party changes everything. Dominoes collapse as quickly as they’re erected. Suddenly, everyone has something to gain and everything to lose.

Love is sweeter.

Jason Gould will never fit in so he doesn’t even try. Content to stay on the periphery of society, he works hard, plans for his future, and keeps to himself. His senior year should be filled with early morning shifts, gym sessions to keep his pent-up anger under control, and readying himself to face the rest of his life alone.

One ray of sunshine refuses to let him fall into darkness. Emma refuses to leave his side no matter what is thrown at them.

When a woman who is dying to fit in joins forces with a man who never will, they just may find they fit together in ways neither could have ever imagined, and they’ll discover a life well-loved is the sweetest revenge of all.

The crowd parts as a lone figure stalks out from one of the side rooms. A nondescript gray hoodie covers his face, but from the few gasps of those closest to the action, they know who he is. When he makes it to the center of the ring to stand by Kieran, Rosie and I use each other as leverage to perch on our toes for a better view.

Slowly, almost as if he both dreads and relishes this part, Jason lowers the hood, exposing his face to the crowd. Just as jeers break out, he continues to disrobe until he's wearing nothing but a pair of faded, ripped jeans.

Silence descends on the basement.

"Oh my God," Rosie breathes. "I don't even like dick, but my panties are absolutely drenched right now."

I can't get my lungs working enough to respond, but I concur. All his time in the gym has paid off in dividends. Every inch of Jason's torso is corded with thick muscle. He could give any of the football team, wrestling team, basketball team...hell, any team a run for their money.

About the Author:
Kata lives in the suburbs of Pittsburgh with her husband and three children.
When she isn't in the writing cave, she's cheering on her favorite sports teams:
the Pitt Panthers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Pittsburgh Pirates. It's good to be a Steel City girl.

RELEASE DAY: The Peer and the Puppet by B.B. Reid

 The Peer and the Puppet 
by B.B. Reid is LIVE! 

Mind-blowing. Angst-filled. Drama driven. Riveting. -- Chatterbooks Book Blog

Angst! Adrenalin! Sexy-times! The Peer and the Puppet had me salivating for MORE! -- Tijan NYT Bestselling author



Borrow the bike. Win the race. Collect the cash. It should've been an easy job. Ran out of town with a broken leg and a lawsuit, my mother's latest flame swoops in like a knight in gilded armor. Blackwood Keep is a place I don't belong, and I'm not the only one who knows. To the boy across the hall, my savior's only son, I'm a stray looking for a bone.

He's lord of the manor.
King of the academy.
And number one on my shit list.


I have no intentions of becoming a happy family with the social climber and her wild daughter. A bottle of Jameson and a cracked skull gets my problem shipped to reform school, but I didn't bank on her returning.

Four's out to get even, and she almost had the perfect plan: expose the privileged kid moonlighting as a gangbanger. She's smart, but she'll have to be smarter. Sending her away won't be good enough this time. I'm going to have to tame the little troublemaker. To the girl across the hall, the one without a name, I'm nothing without my silver spoon.

She's lady of the trailer park.
Queen of the swamps.
And my new favorite pastime.

The romance can be read as a standalone, however, the series is one story. The plot introduced in The Peer and the Puppet will continue in the following novels. Content suitable for 18+.

Throw every pre-conceived notion or judgmental thoughts about stereotypes out the window. This book is oh so different, oh so special. We get people in The Peer and the Puppet. Real people with unique and personal opinions... and I love it! It pulled me if from that first chapter!! I do wish the characters had been in their early 20s instead of teens. So many situations seemed a bit off for teenagers to go through and I always have an issue with the lack of parental involvement.

There is quite a bit of teenage angst and rebellion in Four. I had to remind myself several times that she was only 16. At other times it was extremely obvious that she was a teenager and not the 20 year old she acted like some times. Maybe I’m too far removed from my teenage years now to remember the ups and downs of the maturity level. Ever seemed to mostly act like those alpha jerks a lot of romance readers love.

I can feel myself getting whiplash with all the mood swings in this book! I didn’t even recognize who Ever was during Four’s Birthday. He was almost a sweet teenage boyfriend. Ever is the most confusing guy I’ve ever read about. I know we get his viewpoints but I’m dying to know what’s really going on in his mind... perhaps I’m just dying for the entire story and not these tasty little nuggets!

I was worried this set up was going to be similar to Keiran from Fear Me. He was so hard to like... so hard and I’m not sure I ever succeeded in liking him or even rooting for him. He did not have many redeeming qualities. But Ever is not like him. Yes, he can be hard. Yes, he’s a jerk. But there’s more to Ever. And we see him do things for Four that would make any teenager girl fall. I’m so thankful that there’s a softness to him... I need that in my male characters. I love to swoon!

Ok, I talked a lot about the characters... sorry, they were deep and I felt like a teenager when writing my review... I was so up and so down! B.B. Reid really created a coming of age story that’s gripping and captivating. Reid’s writing is so descriptive. While The Peer and the Puppet has a conclusion, a satisfiable ending, there are still many unanswered questions especially about Ever’s side work. I’m invested in these people now, and while I might have wanted Four and Ever’s besties story next, I’m hopeful that more of Exiled’s story will unfold.

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.





I was having a dream. A very good dream. A dream I’d never in a million years admit to having under any circumstances. Not even torture.
Sadly, my dream ended, and I was jarred awake drenched in sweat. The T-shirt I’d worn to bed was bunched around my waist, showing off my cotton panties. I blushed when I recalled in vivid detail what caused such disarray.
And then I froze when I realized I wasn’t alone.
A quick glance at the foot of my bed showed a figure in dark clothing leaning forward with his forearms casually resting on his knees. The scream that tore from my lips was silenced when the figure leaned over and calmly rested his palm over my mouth.
“My father is a light sleeper,” Ever calmly warned. “And I’m sure you don’t want to explain to your mom why I’m in your bedroom at three in the morning.” My heart continued to race even after he lifted his hand, but I didn’t scream. “Good girl.”
“Why are you here?” I hissed while scrambling to pull down the T-shirt still bunched around my waist. I lifted the comforter I must have kicked away in my sleep and covered my lower half.
Oh, God, he’d seen everything. I felt like I had been caught red-handed considering he’d been the one I’d—
Fuck my life.
“You told my father I went to the store for deodorant.”
“And?” I sounded as exasperated as I felt.
“He didn’t buy your story.”
I could imagine considering he was sitting in my room fully dressed at three in the morning. It didn’t take seven hours to buy deodorant.
“Not. My. Problem.”
“But it is. We made this deal together, and we’ll honor it…together.”
I sighed. “So, what did he do to your highness? Take a spoon?” I mocked.
“Grounded,” he grunted.
“Poor you.”
I didn’t expect his smile. It was soft. Indulging. My overly large T-shirt had slipped from my shoulder, so he trailed his finger over my skin. “I’ll have to punish you, Four.”
“Punish me?” That was laughable. “I’m not your child.”
“No, swamp girl. You’re a puppet. My puppet.” He stood from my bed and headed for the door. “If I’m grounded, so are you.”
I told myself I was still dreaming and that he wasn’t actually saying these words. “What does that even mean?”
“It means I’ll have fun anyway.”
Too exhausted to argue, I sighed and met his gaze. “Get out of my room, McNamara.” I thought there was nothing else he could say or do until his parting words.
“You sound lovely when you come, Archer.”
