WHNK Cover.png

I never learn my lesson.
And I always want what I can’t have.
When Sarah Henderson walks into my life, I tell myself she’s off limits. She’s my student, sixteen years younger than me, and my boss’s niece. It doesn’t matter that I see the same pain reflected in her eyes that I have in my own, or that the dead organ better known as my heart kicks to life when she’s around.
I’ve been here before, and I know how this ends.
It’s been two years since I fell for the last woman I knew I couldn’t have, the one with the ring on her finger that I chose to ignore.
Two years of trying to overcome that heartache when Sarah slides into my life.
Another woman I can’t have. Another woman I can’t stop myself from wanting.
I never learn my lesson, but with a constant reminder of how that last forbidden love burned, I think I’ve finally learned this one.
This time, I won’t chase what’s off limits.
This time, I’m staying away.
And I’ll keep telling myself that until I believe it.

About Kandi:

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

I have to protect my heart every time I start a new Kandi Steiner novel. Since I absolutely LOVED the duet before this book, I knew my heart had to be prepared entering this book! 

It's been two years since the love of his life didn't choose him. Now, Reese is just trying to make it day by day. When he takes on a new piano student for the headmaster of his school, he's shocked to find a broken girl that understands exactly the hurt and heartbreak he's dealing with. Sarah was broken to the point of no return, and now she's a shell of who she used to be. Sarah will do anything to be good enough to reach her dreams of playing the piano at Carnegie hall, which means becoming vulnerable and showing the emotions she's kept locked up since she left school is impossible. Reese is slowly unlocking those emotions and learning how to be human again alongside her. 

Wow. The moment this book starts, your heart is going to shatter and slowly put itself together again with each page. Sarah is violated in the worst possible way and we see her at her lowest point, trying to just get through life. Watching Sarah and Reese connect was so emotional and magical and it was amazing how Kandi can create two such broken people and help heal them. While this was an age gap (21 and 37), I never felt like Sarah and Reese weren't capable of being equals. Because of the life experiences they had and the betrayals they had experienced, they were able to connect with each other and fall for each other because of it. 

Not only was the relationship and the romance spot on in this book, the music that Reese and Sarah connected over was breathtaking. I loved how lost in the music the characters would get and how they would communicate with the piano. I could feel how important the piano and music was to both of these characters and how vulnerable they would become while they played. The music gave their romance so much more depth and meaning. 

If you can't tell, I absolutely adored this book. This is definitely a very emotional book that you have to go in ready for characters to be broken. The beauty of this book, though, was watching these characters learn to love and feel again. I loved seeing Reese finally have a chance at becoming whole again and I think everyone needs to pick up this book!

A Standalone Contemporary Romance Novel


RELEASE DATE: February 25, 2019


NY Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Penelope Ward
  
Excerpt

Noah stood up and walked off the porch to put his cigar out on the cement. When he returned, he remained standing across from me. I was reminded of just how tall he was as he towered over me. A breeze blew his scent—a mix of cigar and cologne—in my direction. The same smell saturated the shirt I was wearing. I could’ve breathed it in all night. His nearness was doing things to my body I hadn’t ever felt.
Noah looked around. “You mentioned some stuff around here needs to be repaired. What specifically?”
I blew out a breath. Even thinking about it was exhausting. “So much. I’d have to make a list.”
“Why don’t you do that? Make a list. I’m pretty good with my hands. I’ll see if there’s anything I can help with while I’m here.”
He’d lost me at pretty good with my hands. My imagination was running wild. Shit. I imagined those hands doing a lot of things—mostly to me.
“I can’t let you do that.”
“You’d be stupid not to take me up on it. I came for a change of pace, but the truth is, too much quiet isn’t good. I like to keep busy.”
Biting my bottom lip, I shook my head. “I don’t know…”
“Make the list,” he insisted.
Noah was right. It would be dumb not to take him up on his offer. It wasn’t like there was anyone else knocking down our door to help.
I tilted my head. “What would be in it for you?”
His expression turned dark. “People don’t always have to have ulterior motives.”
Suddenly feeling bold, I said, “I thought maybe you would want me to go out with you in exchange.”
Did you hear that? It was a record screeching.
I admit, that was ballsy, but being around him brought out my flirtatious side. Maybe his cologne and cigar smoke were going to my head.
“You’re joking, right?”
Okay. I shouldn’t have asked.
“Actually, I—”
“I’m practically old enough to be your father.”
Really? That’s how he saw me? I knew he was older than me…but he didn’t seem that old. No way. I’d pegged him as early thirties, though I truly had no idea how old he was.
I shook my head. “No, you’re not. That’s a lie. An older brother, maybe. How old are you?”
Instead of answering, he took two steps forward. “Let me make something clear.”
“Okay…”
“I was not insinuating anything by offering to help. And I will not be asking you out, propositioning you, or going anywhere near you, for that matter. We clear on that?”
Okay, then.
I swallowed. Disappointment washed over me as I cleared my throat. “Yes.”
“Good.” He made his way toward the door, turning around one last time. “You’d better go. It was nice chatting. Get me the list tomorrow.”

He disappeared into the house, leaving me on the porch to wallow in his lingering smell and feeling like a complete and utter idiot.

Synopsis:

What do you do when a sexy, older man moves into your family’s summer rental? Well, apparently, you make a fool of yourself—over and over. Things didn’t exactly get off on the right foot with Noah Cavallari. Our first encounter was embarrassing, to say the least. But despite that, I found myself waking up every day with a newfound ener-gy. Nothing exciting ever happened on the lake—not until Noah moved into the small boathouse on our property. He’d booked it for the entire summer…and I was still trying to figure out why. When my mother became ill, I inherited the responsibility of making sure our guests were well taken care of. I should have been in college. Instead, I was living my best life…as a maid. Dark, handsome, and mysterious, everything about Noah screamed forbid-den. I knew he was just passing through town for the summer. I knew he was probably too old for me. Yet, I was drawn to him. Not to mention, he tried to save my life when he mistakenly thought I was drowning. I wanted him and made no secret of it. His own attempts to warn me away soon gave way to late-night moonlight chats by the lake. We were slowly easing into a friendship that was gearing up to explode into something I might not recover from. Because he’s leaving at the end of the summer. And I have no idea what I’ll do when August ends.

Blog Tour: Kill Switch by Penelope Douglas

BlogTour-SBPRBANNER.jpeg

Kill Switch by Penelope Douglas
Release Date: February 11th

Kill-Switch-EBOOK (1).jpg

Kill Switch, an all-new standalone dark romantic suspense by Penelope Douglas.

WINTER
Sending him to prison was the worst thing I could’ve done. It didn’t matter that he did the crime or that I wished he was dead. Perhaps I thought I’d have time to disappear before he got out or he’d cool off in jail and be anything but the horror he was.
But I was wrong. Three years came and went too fast, and now he’s anything but calm. Prison only gave him time to plan.
And while I anticipated his vengeance, I didn’t expect this.
He doesn’t want to make me hurt. He wants to make everything hurt.

DAMON
First thing’s first. Get rid of her daddy. He told them I forced her. He told them his little girl was a victim, but I was a kid, too, and she wanted it just as much as I did.
Step two… Give her, her sister, and her mother nowhere to run and no fuel to escape. The Ashby women are alone now and desperate for a knight in shining armor.
But that’s not what’s coming.
No, it’s time I listened to my father and took control of my future. It’s time I showed them all—my family, her family, my friends—that I will never change and that I have no other ambition than to be the nightmare of their lives.
Starting with her.
She’ll be so scared, she won’t even be safe in her own head by the time I’m done with her. And the best part is I won’t have to break into her home to do it.
As the new man of the house I have all the keys.
Kill Switch is suitable for readers 18+. While it can be read as a stand-alone, all of the characters are developed throughout the series. The first two books, Corrupt and Hideaway, are now available through Kindle Unlimited!

I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for this book. Damon was such a villain in the first two books of this series and I couldn't wait to see how Penelope would make us actually like him to read a [huge] book of his own!

Three years ago Winter sent him to prison. Now he's back. And this time, he's not letting her get away that easily. 

I will say, I knew this was going to be a super long book and it definitely felt like it while I was reading it. It took more forever to get through this book, but in a good way? I never felt like the story was dragging or like we got too much information. We got a lot of past storyline so we understood exactly what happened between Damon and Winter at various stages of their lives, then the present storyline became more and more prevalent as the story went on. The different timelines were woven together nicely and paralleled perfectly. 

Being inside of Damon's head, I almost forgot how horrible of a person he was in the previous books. Getting to know who he was and the whys behind his decision made him actually likable and I found myself falling for Damon. While I did fall for him, though, there were times where he was evil pertaining to Winter's blindness. There are TERRIFYING scenes in here that gave me sooo much anxiety regarding being in the dark. I don't know how Winter did it, but, like the previous books, our heroines thrive on danger and the thrill of being scared, and I definitely felt that thrill as I was reading. I truly felt like I was in Winter's world of blindness and was terrified yet excited along with her. 

I didn't know that it would be possible, but Penelope sure did blow this book out of the water. She made Damon relatable and lovable and detestable all at once. It was amazing being back in the Corrupt world and now I am dying for Will's book!

Book Review: The Risk by Elle Kennedy

The Risk (Briar U #2)
by Elle Kennedy
Release Date: February 18, 2019
Source: Author
A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy. THE RISK takes you back to the world of hot hockey players, feisty heroines, bro banter, and steamy scenes... 

Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right—I don’t let fear rule me, and I certainly don’t care what people think. But I draw the line at sleeping with the enemy. As the daughter of Briar’s head hockey coach, I’d be vilified if I hooked up with a player from a rival team.

And that’s who Jake Connelly is. Harvard’s star forward is arrogant, annoying, and too attractive for his own good. But fate is cruel—I require his help to secure a much-coveted internship, and the sexy jerk isn’t making it easy for me.

I need Connelly to be my fake boyfriend.

For every fake date…he wants a real one.

Which means this bad girl is in big trouble. Nothing good can come from sneaking around with Jake Connelly. My father would kill me, my friends will revolt, and my post-college career is on the line. But while it’s getting harder and harder to resist Jake’s oozing sex appeal and cocky grin, I refuse to fall for him.

That’s the one risk I’m not willing to take.


Every time a new Elle Kennedy book comes out, I always want to drop everything and devour the book in one sitting. While real life did get in the way of this dream, I was able to devour this book in a couple of days and fall in love with Brenna and Jake's story. 

Brenna is used to disappointing her father, no matter how hard she's tried to make a life for herself by getting into Briar and keeping good grades. When the opportunity of a lifetime comes to interview for a hockey news-casting program, her dream job, Brenna will do anything. Including flirting with the enemy. Jake Connelly knows Brenna only needs him to help land her the job, but he can't help but try to get her to see their chemistry and try for something real, even though they're sworn hockey enemies. 

From the very first page, I was obsessed with the banter between Brenna and Jake. They knew they were on opposite sides of a hockey rivalry, but that didn't stop them from pushing each other's buttons and playing games. I had a huge grin on myself as they flirted and danced around each other. Jake Connelly was soooooo swoon worthy and I definitely fell for him while reading this book. 

While the romance was amazing and I was 100% invested, I loved how there were so many other people who were important in the characters' lives. I loved the conflict Brenna was having with her dad and the crew of characters who were friends with Brenna and Jake. Brenna and Jake not only had to think about themselves and their own relationship, but they also had to think about how their decisions and action would affect their friends and loved ones. I also loved seeing Summer and Fitz again!

Elle Kennedy is the queen of sports romance and she nailed it again with The Risk. With swoon-worthy and infuriatingly lovable hockey players, the romance in this book was just perfect. There was also enough hockey to satisfy my sport cravings. There was just so much to this book and I loved every second if it. If you haven't yet, you need to start this series so you can fall in love with Brenna and Jake too!

Book Review: Lust by Ker Dukey

Lust (The Elite Seven #1)
by Ker Dukey
Release Date: February 11, 2019
Source: Blog Tour
I was born with wealth, athletic ability, and looks that could melt the panties off a nun.
I had a clear path to success. 
Until fate dealt me a cruel blow, leaving me empty and in need of purpose. 
My only focus now is to become part of The Elite—a secret society in one of the most prestigious colleges in the world. 
But everything comes at a price, and with The Elite, you have to earn your place.
Lucky for me, being sinful is in my DNA. 
The only obstacle to full initiation is my task: seduce the un-seducible, the forbidden, and lure her with the sins of the flesh.
Easy for a man like me…in theory. 
She started as my task, but what happens when the lines between lust and love blur, and the need for power rages war with the need for her? 
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak—they’re for The Elite. 
This is my life, my chance, my legacy.
I am Rhett Masters.
I am Lust.


When I saw that there was a series of 7 novellas coming out all in the same world by a few authors that I love, I was definitely intrigued. I was excited to try out some new authors and see how the first book in this series turned out! 

Rhett Masters had it all. The looks, the girls, the athletic ability. But one night and one mistake changed everything and it haunts Rhett day and night. When Rhett's family is falling apart, the only salvation is joining The Elite, a secret society that's only been a whisper in his life. Now, it's time for him to prove his worth. 

When I first started this book, I wasn't all sure how I felt about it. For a good 30% of the book, which is a lot for a novella, Rhett spent the time passed out or partying and waking up not knowing what happened the night before. He didn't even meet the love interest until then (over a quarter the way through), so I felt like there wasn't really a point to that part of the book. Once Rhett actively started to join the society, though, this book really picked up. I wanted to DNF or give this book a one star at the beginning, but the story FINALLY gained some momentum and drama and I finally started enjoying it. 

Once this book finally picked up and actually had a point, I was sucked into this secret society and Rhett's romance. I still didn't enjoy Rhett's character all that much and would have preferred another point of view thrown into the mix, but it did make me much more intrigued about The Elite and the other six recruits. 

Overall, this wasn't the best start to this series, but it did leave me wanting to know more about the other characters and what the authors can do with this world. Hopefully the series picks up after this!

The Elite Seven
7 AUTHORS. 7 STORIES. 7 DEADLY SINS.


 

PURCHASE NOW
 

Since 1942, The Elite Seven Society have created and guided influential leaders, molding the country into something better. This society was birthed by Malcom Benedict, II who wanted more for Americans. More wealth. More influence. More power. Some leaders have the skills, but not the influence, and that simply wasn’t fair according to Mr. Benedict. He invested his own money and time to construct a society that bred the best of the best, year after year.
But to be the best, you must be ruthless.
Good leaders make sacrifices. Sometimes the sacrifices are hard, but the rewards are plentiful. Mr. Benedict made sure to indulge these leaders with their utmost desires. A devout Catholic himself, he designed a society that rewarded his leaders with the sins that were frowned upon. If they were giving up love and happiness and joy for the betterment of the country, they deserved something in its stead.
Pride, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony, and Lust.
Choosing leaders for this society means that it takes intense focus. Only seven are to be selected, and the investments and time are showered upon the new seven chosen every four years. The predecessors of each group of seven choose people who fit the sin that will mold them into who they are needed to be in the future—what America needs them to be. This is after a detailed study of many potential candidates. The university’s acting dean behaves as a liaison for the society bringing the college applicants to the predecessors so that the selection may begin. The society members who are going out will bring forth a candidate that the society votes on and approves.
After they are chosen, the initiates are given a token and an invitation to initiation. The initiation will be a test to their character and ability to do what’s right for the betterment of the society. Once the initiates pass their test, they are discreetly branded with the mark of the society, and are groomed through challenges during the course of their elite education to breed them into the influential people they were meant to be.
Once in The Elite Seven, there is no getting out. The money and power are their reward. Should they choose to stray or break the rules, the society strips them of everything. Anything they once had will be removed. Opportunities will never arise. They will no longer have the support of the society. To this day, there have been no known occurrences of anyone from the society having to be banished. This elite group of people are what every young man and woman aspire to be a part of. While the group is a secret society, they are whispered about amongst the privileged folks in the country. Anyone who is anyone knows of the group and secretly hopes it’s their son or daughter who are selected, for good fortune is showered on the family for decades to come.

Wrath: Releasing March 11th


I’m a motherless son to a father who hates me. Fury has lived and breathed in my black heart for so long, it’s a part of my soul now.

Envy: Releasing March 25th

 

People say I have everything. They’re wrong. I may have looks, money, and privilege, but I don’t have the one thing that really matters, the one thing I crave: a woman with eyes only for me. I’m searching for my woman—one who will fall to her knees because I’m her king. She’ll wear the crown of my tarnished name, and long for me when I’m not near. And when I am close, she’ll be naked across my lap, feeling the sting of my palm across her milky skin. You could say I’m a sinner because I’d do anything to have the perfect woman—compliant to my every need and whim—and I’m envious of every couple who walks around naive to the luxury they have. That’s why I joined The Elite, the most prestigious brotherhood in the south. It’s the one place that will give me what I cannot have. Only…the task assigned to me is too much for my jealous eyes. Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak...they’re for The Elite. Those who envy have no peace. My name is Sabastian Westbrook. I am Envy.

ENVY by M.N Forgy

 
Greed: Releasing April 8th


I was born into a world of darkness—one that never touched me when I was around my brother, Mason Blackwell. Leader of The Elite Seven. The thing about darkness, though, is it’s persistent. Eventually, it pushes itself into my life, penetrating my soul and leaving its stench latched to every vein, rooted inside every bone, and sunken into every pore. I thought I reached rock bottom when I fell in love with my brother’s best friend. My very own brand of drug with no comedown. My own nightmare I never woke from. But I was wrong. So very wrong. When I returned to New Orleans, I arrived as a shell of the girl they once knew. Put on a smile. Be the sweet innocent girl they remember. I’m Evie Blackwell, hostage to my demons. Can the damned be saved? I’ve done some unforgivable acts in my years, but I never asked for forgiveness. Nothing beats the feeling of wrapping my hand around someone’s throat and watching as their life bleeds down their cheeks. She was everything I should have stayed away from. The first night I saw her, I knew I was doomed—a slave to the girl with the pretty eyes and soft smile. The girl who turned out to be my best friend's baby sister. I couldn’t stay away. I had to be near her, even if it meant ruining her in the process. I wanted to wreck her, so I could piece her back together—a puzzle only I knew how to solve. I’m Micah Dixon. Greed. I come for everything and get everything I come for—and I want all of her. But she’s changed, and so have I. I’m much, much worse now…

Gluttony: Releasing April 22nd

 

My life has been served to me on a gold platter to be devoured by my silver spoon. Money, money, and more money. It’s the backbone of the Goddard name. I’m the only son, so it’s all mine for the taking. But sometimes money isn’t enough. I always want more, yet nothing seems to satisfy me. My father has made sure I become a part of The Elite Seven. Where most candidates are chosen, I was given my place. Everything comes at a price, though. Luckily, I can afford any price—no one has more money than God. The Elite Seven have their initiations. My assignment is personal and beneath me: steal a car and send a warning. It’ll hurt my best friend in the process, but we both made a pact going into this. There’s no line we won’t cross. My task makes an ugly turn and I nearly take a life. Such a small, unimportant person—someone no one would even notice was gone. She’s a problem my money and power can easily sweep under the rug. It’s what my father wants. It’s what my brothers want. But when she finally opens those big, innocent brown eyes, I realize I’ve found what I’ve been searching for my entire life. I don’t want my little problem to disappear…I want to keep her. Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak—they’re for The Elite. Money is my legacy, but I want something money can’t buy. I am Baxter Samuel Goddard V. I am Gluttony.

Sloth: Releasing May 13th


I don’t give a fuck. Not about money or fame, beauty or power. I’ve had all those things since birth, and trust me, they’re a fucking snooze. I don’t give a fuck about anyone, not even myself. Until my father proves evil can exist in the most holy of places. For the first time ever, something like interest stirs in my soul. He wants me to enroll at St. Augustine. Join The Elite. Court the virginal daughter of Archbishop Savoie. Prove to him I’m worth the family name. I’ll do it all. And I’ll do it so well, no one will know what’s coming. People are so quick to underestimate the wicked and lazy. They forget idle hands are the best tools for the devil’s work. I am Rush Dempsey. I am Sloth.
