REVIEW: Connell By Samantha Whiskey


I’m famous for two things—being one of the best defensemen in the NHL and my classic pranks.
My teammates always said one of my jokes would bite me in my Scottish arse one day, and they were right.
After a prank goes wrong, I’m sentenced to six weeks community service under none other than the sexy, rule-abiding, smart-mouthed city clerk of Sweet Water—Annabelle Clarke.

Lucky for me it’s offseason.
Unlucky for me?
I want Annabelle like I want my next breath.
She’s smart, luscious, and wound-tighter than a Scottish drum.
Och, I’d love to be the one to help loosen her strings.

She’s made it clear that while I’m under her employment, she won’t be under me.
The white-hot chemistry we can’t deny must be ignored at all costs.
But bantering with her is soon my favorite pastime
And she’s the sweetest forbidden fruit I’ve ever tasted

As we grow closer, one thing is absolutely clear
A summer with Annabelle Clarke can only end one of two ways:
Satisfaction or surrender.
And I can only hope we can weather the storm when the sky inevitably crashes down on us. 



This series has been full of swoon worthy men who want nothing more to make their special ladies makes me love hockey more and the men on the Reapers.

Connell has had my interest peaked for since Axel, mainly because personally how many people from Scotland come over to play hockey and get in the NHL. Don’t jump all over me, I may have this love of hockey and a few teams but it is not my obsessive love, I know my teams and my player, that’s about it. ( Woot Got Oilers! ) I also love his joking nature, that to me shows he has a kind, playful heart which is shown here and his relationship with Annabelle, prior to it becoming a romantic relationship.

I love Annabelle because she is real on many levels, she is a fuller woman, and to me as bigger fuller woman, that is great to see in a book, and get the hot hockey player! She is also so confident, even though she shows some small bouts of self doubt. That shows she is normal and a great and relatable character.

Connell and Annabelle are sweet and honestly a dream couple, he is the best for her, the soft and funny to her hard and serious.

This whole series so far have the best Book Boyfriends that I am ready to steal.

RELEASE BLITZ: Demise Of A Self- Centered Playboy By Piper Rayne

By Piper Rayne
Release Day: November 19

You might be wondering how you’ll know when your playboy ways are coming to an end. For some it might be an unexpected pregnancy (ahem… you know who), for others it might be finally landing the one woman you’ve always wanted (cough… I won’t mention any names). For me, it was the death of my mentor and the subsequent reading of their will.

The signs were there, they always are. But I didn’t notice them until it was too late, and my demise was complete.

Demise Sign #1 – You find yourself thrust into the land of responsibility and you don’t immediately hightail it out of town.

Demise Sign #2 – Despite being stuck with the world’s biggest Jekyll & Hyde, some sadistic part of you actually enjoys spending time with her.

Demise Sign #3 – Your family suddenly stops wanting to weigh in on every decision in your life.

Demise Sign #4 – Somehow you end up being the voice of reason in your tumultuous partnership.

Demise Sign #5 – You start thinking of other people before yourself.

Demise Sign #6 – You agree to put yourself in the middle of an Alaskan reality TV show that has both of you sleeping in the same tent.

Demise Complete.
