Good With His Hands by Lili Valente and Lauren Blakely
Title: Good With His Hands Author: Lili Valente and Lauren Blakely Genre: Contemporary Romance Release Date: 18 December 2020
A sexy best friend’s brother romance from bestselling authors Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente!
I’m the wrong guy for her.
She’s sunshine and cherry pie. I’m whiskey and fast cars. I’m also keeping one hell of a secret from the woman I’ve wanted for years.
But when I find a list my sister left behind for Ruby, I’ve got no choice but to offer the sexy, big-hearted girl next door both a road trip and a chance.
A chance to discover how big she can dream.
And if some of those dreams play out in the bedroom? Well, there’s nothing wrong with a few — okay, several — hot nights together as we hit the beach, visit old stomping grounds, and test all sorts of limits, in and out of the sheets.
Seven days, then I’m off, moving across the country, far away from her.
No way can things get complicated in a week. Ruby and I aren’t the kind of dream that has a shot of coming true.
Especially once she learns what I’ve done.
GOOD WITH HIS HANDS is a sexy standalone romance in the Good in Bed series!
Title: No Good (Dayton High #2) Author: Stevie J. Cole & LP Lovell Genre: Enemies to Lovers Romance Release Date:15 October 2020
He was the reprobate king of Dayton high. I was the bitter princess cast out of my kingdom. And we were at war.
It started off with a lie, and a one-night stand gone terribly wrong. Although I knew nothing good would come from my encounter with Bellamy West, the small town’s gorgeous bad boy, I didn’t expect him to throw jet fuel onto the already flaming wreckage of my life. Then step back with a sexy smirk on his face to watch me burn.
And burn I did…
He got me fired.
I got him arrested.
We were enemies until we weren’t. Until one touch went too far, and I found myself craving each dirty word. Every filthy promise.
Bellamy West was no good, and I wanted to be bad.
Screw falling for Prince Charming, I wrote my love story with the villain.
Oh, man, I don’t know where to start here. This book’s plot is a solid bully romance, and their chemistry is rather good. However, this story’s beginning is a bit of a duck’s butt of weirdness in how it portrays “push and pull.” As a matter of fact, early Cole Travis comes across as a petty pre-pubescent rather than a sexy rock-god.
Monica has had a crappy experience with a crappy excuse for a human being. She’s scarred but trying to heal, and her new school has her latest crappy experience–a new bully. Just in time for the last crappy-excuse for a human to become a memory, another one is on her radar, but this one is hot, and she’s fascinated. Cole Travis is everywhere, and if she’s not looking at him, he’s looking at her.
Title: Thanks for Last Night (The Guys Who Got Away #3) Author: Lauren Blakely Genre: Romantic Comedy Release Date:16 September 2020
A sexy new friends-to-lovers standalone!
Let me list the reasons why dating a sexy, charming, pro hockey star is a bad idea:
He’s one of my closest friends
All our friends are friends
The wounds I’ve got from past relationships go deep. And so do his.
We’re both devoutly single — it’s just safer for the heart that way. But there’s no reason not to bid on the gorgeous, clever athlete at the charity auction this weekend. If I win, it’ll be a friendsdate.
First of all, let me get this off my chest. After how many titles, how come Amo Jones still can’t get a calendar and timeline down? Hers never make a lick of sense! You can’t tell me that an event happened, the next day someone was acting strange, and then they disappeared and then later tell me sixteen days happened within that one day and expect me to understand the plot. Time doesn’t work like that.
Jade and Royce are inseparable. Royce’s family fostered Jade as a child and adopted her, she and Royce and his friends were tight like Spanx, and everyone could see the writing on the wall that they weren’t sibling-like as they grew older.
If you are adopted, then you are no longer a foster; you are an adopted sibling. It’s semantics, yes, but, still, you aren’t what the author says you are through-out the entire freaking book. Either way, you aren’t blood-related and in the world of one-percenter who really would care, but why in the hell misidentify the situation? I can call my chocolate cake lunch for the entire afternoon because I ate it midday and say it’s an essential point to this review, and it would make as much damn sense as calling her a foster when she’s adopted.
Just when life is all perfect, and nothing could go wrong, Jade experiences Royce’s worst betrayal. And her entire life goes to crap. No spoiler here–this is an Amo Jones book that is just the start of the book.

The eagerly anticipated conclusion of Maddox’s and Lila’s story, I DARE YOU, book 2 of the Truth And Dare Duet.
