About THE REAL DEAL:

Sophie Kinsella meets Jennifer Crusie in your next favorite romantic comedy, THE REAL DEAL!

April Hamilton wants you to know she hasn’t been on Craigslist since that time she sold her futon after college. She doesn’t even spend that much time online. And even if she did, she would not be looking up personal ads. But going home alone for her family's summer reunion is an invitation for every single relative to butt into her personal life. She simply can’t handle another blind date with the butcher, the baker or the candlestick maker from her hometown. So when she finds the Craigslist ad for a boyfriend-for-hire, she’s ready to pay to play.

Heading Home and Need a Buffer? I’m the REAL DEAL.

Theo Banks has been running from the past for years. He’s this close to finally settling all his debts, and one more job as a boyfriend-for-hire will do the trick. He’s no gigolo. Please. He’s something of an actor, and he knows how to slip into any role, including pretending to be April’s new beau -- the bad boy with the heart of gold.

Even if it means sleeping in close quarters in that tiny little bed in her parents’ inn. Even if it means spinning tales of a romance that starts to feel all too true. What neither one of them counts on is that amid the egg toss, the arm wrestling, and a fierce game of Lawn Twister that has them tangled up together, they might be feeling the real deal.

She only wanted to show her family once and for all that she had no need to settle down.

He didn’t expect to have the time of his life at her parent’s home.

They didn’t plan on loving every single second of the game.

But can a masterful game of pretend result in true love?

cover-wrap-sm


Bestselling author Staci Hart brings you an addictive romantic mythology series where love is the ultimate game, and Aphrodite always wins.

From Darkness by Staci Hart

Publishing Date: September 28th, 2017


I never wanted to leave her. But I had no choice.
I’ve spent the last three years raising my daughter and wishing for things I couldn’t have. When I came back to New York, I thought I could find my way back to her. But that path was lost, grown over and hidden from everyone, especially me.
Her obsession over her best friend’s death is dangerous, and the man she’s after could put her life at stake. She’ll never let it go, not until he’s behind bars or dead.
She just doesn’t realize it might not be him who pays in the end.
If only she’d let me help her. If only she’d let me in. When she sets her mind to something, that’s it. But there’s an exception to every rule, and I plan to be the exception to this one.
And I’ll protect her until my very last breath, whether she wants me or not.


Excerpt:

Josie could feel Jon's eyes on her, and her brow furrowed with discomfort as she put Chester in her back seat. She climbed in and turned the key, and Jon slipped in next to her, smelling like rain and leather and man. She swallowed hard. Should have made him sit in the back. He grabbed her auxiliary cable and held up the end. “You mind?” “Rude. But fine, go ahead and hijack my radio.” He plugged his phone in, and trumpets blared in the speakers as “Ring of Fire” began. She backed out of the parking spot and took off toward the police station. “You are such a southern boy.” He looked at her like she had nine heads. “Southern or not, who doesn’t like Johnny Cash?” Chester drunkenly sang along from the back seat. Jon hitched his thumb at Chester, and a smile crept across his lips. “See?” Josie’s eyes were on the road, but she found herself smiling despite herself. She snuck a glance over at him just as he looked away. The windows were cracked, and the wind whipped his hair out from behind his ear and across his face. His hand moved to tuck it back in place, and his fingers grazed the bridge of his nose. She snapped her eyes forward and took a breath that was achingly full of Jon as Johnny sang about the fire that consumes hearts when they are stupid enough to fall in love. Josie cleared her throat and turned the radio down, though Chester kept singing. They were otherwise silent through the short distance to the station, the quiet accompanied by the occasional glance from Jon, who was clearly entertained by Chester's enthusiasm. After they turned the flasher in, they made their way out of the station, neither knowing what to say as they descended the cement stairs. They stopped for a moment when they reached the sidewalk. Josie stuck her hands in her jacket pockets, suddenly feeling guilty for her refusal to take him back to his car and for being an ass to him. It wasn’t like he’d planned on crashing her job. She didn’t think at least. “Listen,” she started, “I can take you back to your car if you want.” Jon waved her off. “Don’t worry about it, Jo. Really.” He walked backwards with a smile on his face. “I’ll see you around, okay?” he said with a wink before he turned and walked away, whistling his beloved Johnny Cash all the way. She watched Jon for a little too long before finding her senses and turning for her car, trying to talk herself down like she did every time she saw him. He hurt you, she told herself. He left you, she pleaded with her heart. He chose her, was the only thought that made a dent, and she found her resolve as she drove away.

From Darkness (Hearts & Arrows #3) by Staci Hart
Stars: 5

Second Chances... times two?

Dita, Ares, Perry, Heff, Artemis, and Appollo are all back!  I'm sure I've missed a few gods, but those are my favorite ones ;) Note: spoilers below from books 1-2, but NO spoilters for book 3.  After the way book 2 ended things are in flux - the anger, sadness, hatred and fear are high and it comes out in the games.  But can the goddess of love conquer all?  And now a bit about the story...

This competition is between Artemis, goddess of the hunt, and Aphrodite, goddess of love.  They both have different powers, but both are suffering.  Will they let their humans suffer too?  Josie has already lost so much.  Now Jon is back and wants her back - but will he get the second chance he wants?  Can Josie survive his return and solve her case -- it seems one (or both) could destroy her...

Favorite passages:
 - “it couldn’t hurt to be a little more lip gloss and a little less gunmetal.”
 - “All right. Don’t forget to put on pants and a bra before you go chasing the potential kidnapper.” Josie motioned to Anne’s naked legs.
 - “It won’t be for much longer if I keep picking up jobs and you keep busting your ass at lawyer waitressing.”
 - He also knew there was an exception to every rule, and he planned to be the exception to this one.

Paper Fools (Hearts & Arrows #1) by Staci Hart
Stars: 5

Oh Gods! I loved it <3

I'm not sure I've ever read a story like this. It was like two stories for the price of one! Instead of the narrator just pulling the strings there was a story going on in the narrator's world too. You'll laugh, get chills, hot flashes, be frustrated, and hopeful! And now a bit about the story...

Dita, short for Aphrodite, and Apollo are competing. Dita to get Dean and Lex together and Apollo to keep them apart. While the story of Dean and Lex unfolds, there are several stories taking place in Olympus. Then there is the secret between Kara and Roe. Band, drama, gods, what's not to love!!

Favorite passages:
- “His goodness was always there, even when I didn’t want to see it,”
- It was like caging a panther, beautiful and dangerous — if she kept him fed, she could tame him. And if she couldn’t, he would devour her until there was nothing left but bones. 
- Every scenario that crossed her mind did not end well. And by not ending well, she meant ending up lip-locked against a wall.

Shift (Hearts & Arrows #2) by Staci Hart
Stars: 5

Subtle, Satisfying, and Setbacks

It's time for the next game in Olympus! The series focuses around the gods and goddesses, not the characters of New York they seem to enjoy swinging and shaping to their own ends. Though we did get an update on the couple from book 1 ;) Olympus has been updated - the names, the technology, the food - or lack of, etc! Be sure to start with Paper Fools, to see why Dita is so frustrated with the men in her life. And when the goddess of love is frustrated all should look out! And now a bit about the story...

Dillon and Kat have both spent their entire lives protecting their younger brother and sister, respectively. Dillon protects Owen from his "father" and Kat protects Kiki from everyone! A fighter and a race car driver - both have to shift in their sport, whether it is their thinking, their feet, the gears, etc. But can these two shift when they are not competing? Can they shift towards selfishness versus constant protector, towards love and responsibility - not not responsibility?

Favorite passages:
- "What the fuck is your problem? Don't roll in here and insult me just because you're some 'roided out motherfucker with anger issues and tiny balls."
- "Saying you have a terrible track record is like saying Hannibal Lecter just hosted bad dinner parties."
- "Kiki's been through more boys than the Cub Scouts."
- She was infuriating and intriguing. She was maddening and mysterious. He wanted to know her, and he wanted nothing to do with her.
- "Sometimes gambles pay off in unforeseen ways."
- "Safe is an illusion, a lie we tell ourselves. The only way to gain is to risk."

Title: Daring Wes
Series: Cade Brothers #2
Author: Jules Barnard
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 26, 2017




Blurb

A second chance could either save him or destroy him...

I was born with a competitive streak a mile wide. Ever since I could walk, I've made it a point to never lose. And I never did, until my girlfriend left me senior year of college and my professional golf career tanked.

Over the past four years, I've fought to regain my winning edge. The last thing I need as I prepare for the pro tour is my ex-girlfriend sauntering into the golf shop on the arm of her new fiancé. Then again, this might be my opportunity to win back what I've lost.

Kaylee doesn't seem the contented fiancée she should be, or the cold-hearted girl who left me years ago--and she's hiding a secret. One I'm determined to discover. Because if there's a chance I was wrong about Kaylee and she really had loved me, maybe I can break the mental block that's left me in the rough.

But the rules of golf don't always apply to love.


*NOTE: This is not a cheating story. Each book in the Cade Brothers series is a standalone that can be read in any order.*

Daring Wes (Cade Brothers #2) by Jules Barnard
Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5

Temptation will overcome!!His biggest challenge...

Another Lake Tahoe hit!! The Cade brothers are back again and another is likely to fall. But will he fall for real or head first into the water hazard?? Funny, frustrating, hot -- I mean there is a Magic Mike style dance for Pete's sake -- and another adventure at the resort. And now a bit about the story...

Wes and Kaylee were in love one upon a time, back in college, but then she left him, his golf game went to crap, he didn't make the pro tour and he was stuck working as the golf pro at Daddy's resort. Now he has accepted his new normal, that is until Kaylee walks into his pro shop announcing she is there to marry someone else. The sparks are flying, but she isn't single and there is lots of pain on both sides. I'm betting him may go for a swim in a water hazard for sure!!

Favorite passages:
- Wes gave her a blank stare. “Emily, don’t use convoluted female logic on me right now.”
- Not that he’d admit that to a single living soul, but he wasn’t such a caveman that he couldn’t admit it to himself. Okay, it had taken him years to admit it, but he’d gotten there eventually. Cavemen could evolve.
- And that was a big if. But none of that mattered at the moment. Suddenly his lower half seemed the smarter of the two brains, and it was in full control.

Tempting Levi (Cade Brothers #1) by Jules Barnard
Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5

Temptation will overcome!!

Spin off from the Men of Lake Tahoe series! In the last Tahoe book we met Adam Cade. Now we are about to meet the remaining four hot brothers to come in this series with love, passion, suspense, frustration, and happiness!! And now a bit about the story...

Levi has been put in a tough spot. A blow to the head took his dream job away. Now he's lost his absent father only to be asked to fill his shoes. What does he know about running a resort? Luckily his father planned ahead for that. He hired a Harvard grad to assist Levi. Problem after problem those two can't seem to stay apart... but dating the boss isn't all bad, right?

Favorite passages:
- Though he had touched her bared skin—purely to get her attention. Had nothing to do with being drawn to her beauty like a bug to the neon light that would be its death.
- Yeah, that wasn’t gonna work. He couldn’t date Emily. She was Lisa’s sister, for God’s sake. 
And his assistant. And he needed her at the club more than he needed her in his bed. He wanted her in his bed, but he wasn’t impulsive like his younger brothers.
