Lisa Brown Roberts

Release date: September 14th 2015

Genre: Young Adult Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Entangled Teen

✾ Synopsis ✾

The Good Girl Vs. The Player

Round one begins...

Trina Clemons needed the money. Why else would she - the most organized, prepared student in school - spend the summer as a nanny and partner with the biggest slacker ever? Now she's ready to tackle nannyhood with her big binder of research and schedules. Just don't ask her about the secret job of "fixing" the bad habits of a certain high school player...

Slade Edmunds prefers easy hook-ups, and Trina is definitely not his type. She's all structure and rules, while Slade wants to just have fun. Fortunately, Trina has no idea about the bet Slade made with his best friend that he can totally get her to unwind by the end of summer...

Then the weirdest thing happens. There's chemistry. A lot of it.

But nothing gets between a boy and a girl like a big, fat secret...

✿ My Review ✿

Trina Clemons and Slade Edmunds couldn't be more different: she follows all the rules, is extremely organized and loves schedules; he is a slacker, a player and loves to go with the flow. But now they are going to spend the summer together as the nannies of two 5 year-olds.
Although at first their partnership seems to be difficult, as the time passes they get to know each other and a relationship starts to blossom.
But they are keeping secrets from each other, both from their pasts and how they got the nanny job.
How will they react when they find out the truth?

Playing the Player is an awesome YA book. The story is very captivating and I couldn't stop reading it. It has everything a good YA book must have: drama, angst and lots of funny and awkward moments.

Trina and Slade are total opposites, but they really complement each other. I loved the chemistry between them.
A tragic event in Trina's past made her a very cautious person that likes to have a plan to the unexpected. She loves her mother and to fight for the underdogs. I loved how she started to let loose and have more confidence in herself after spending time with Slade and the kids.
Slade is a bad boy slacker and a player. He had his heart broken by a girl before and now he doesn't believe in falling in love, but he has a big heart. He becomes more responsible after spending time with Trina and the kids and I loved to see how much he changed.
Max and Gillian are awesome! I loved them! Like Trina and Slade, they're total opposites but they're best friends.

Overall, Playing the Player is an awesome YA book. Lisa Brown Roberts wrote a fantastic story that keeps the reader wanting more and created great characters that make the reader connect with them.
Can't wait read more of her work!

✿ The Author ✿

Lisa Brown Roberts still hasn't recovered from the teenage trauma of nearly tweezing off her eyebrows and penciling them in for an entire school year. This and other painful memories inspire her to write books in which girls big on wit and heart earn happy endings with swoony guys... eventually.

Her almost forever home is Colorado, though she occasionally pines for the days when she lived within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean. Her house is full of books, boys, four-­legged prima donnas, and lots of laughter.

Fourth Debt

Pepper Winters

Genre: Dark Erotic Romance

Release Date: August 11, 2015

✾ Synopsis ✾

Fifth Book in the New York Times Bestselling Series.

"We'd won. We'd cut through the lies and treachery and promised an alliance that would free us both. But even as we won, we lost. We didn't see what was coming. We didn't know we had to plan a resurrection."

Nila Weaver fell in love. She gifted her entire soul to a man she believed was worthy. And in the process, she destroyed herself. Three debts paid, the fourth only days away. The Debt Inheritance has almost claimed another victim.

Jethro Hawk fell in love. He let down his walls to a woman he believed was his cure. For a moment, he was free. But then he paid the ultimate price.

There is no more love. Only war. Hope is dead. Now, there is only death all around them.

✿ Excerpt ✿

Cut shook his head, looking at his mother. "They never fucking learn."

Bonnie laughed. "Neither did you, dear. Not for a long time."

He wrapped an arm around her brittle shoulders. "I can't imagine ever being so terrible."

My fingernails dug into my palm as I witnessed a seemingly normal bond. How could evil have so many layers? How could it be so obvious one moment, then hidden by family ties and hierarchy the next?

Bonnie tapped her cane against Cut's foot. "You're not forgetting what you did, are you? Because I have news for you — you were worse. A lot worse." Moving forward, she dislodged his hold. "But I straightened out the mess you made. I put things right. I have every faith you will, too."

Cut nodded. "Damn right, I will." His eyes strained but apart from a few cracks in his smooth veneer, I would never have guessed he'd pulled the trigger on two of his children.

He's dead.

He's dead.

All because of me.

Inching closer to Jasmine, I whispered so only she would hear. "He tried to shoot you, but Jethro saved you. Do you have no shame?"

Her eyes zeroed in on mine. Thoughts and emotions flickered over her face but she didn't reply.

Her betrayal hurt. Jethro and Kes had loved her. They'd died for her. Who could claim to love them in return yet continue to be in the same house as the man who'd shot them?

My stomach twisted. "You make me sick."

Her hands tightened around the rims of her wheels. Shutters slammed over her eyes, but still no response.

Tears stung but I had nothing else to say. Only one promise that she might as well hear, so she'd know who truly loved her brother. "I'll kill you for this. Just like I'll kill them."

Welcome to the Point #3
Jay Crownover

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Release Date: August 11th 2015

✾ Synopsis ✾

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover's third novel in her sexy, thrilling Welcome to the Point series, a woman's search for repentance leads her to the one man from her past she can't forget as they join forces to save their city — and the explosive love neither can live without.

Titus King sees the world in black and white. Right and wrong. Which is why as a teenager he left behind the only family he'd ever known to make a better life for himself. Now a police detective in one of the worst cities in the country, he can't deny his life has turned into a million different shades of gray.

The new criminal element in The Point has brought vengeance and destruction right to Titus's front door, and the difference between right and wrong is nothing compared to keeping those he loves alive. To add to his already strained moral compass, the beautiful and mysterious Reeve Black has made her way back to town, and she might be as dangerous to Titus as the guy trying to destroy the Point because he needs her — in more ways than one.

Reeve knows all about how ruthless this new threat to destroy The Point can be... and instead of running away, she wants to help. She has a lot to repent for and saving the city, plus the hot cop that she hasn't been able to forget might just be the only way she can finally find some inner peace.

With an entire city poised on the brink of war, Titus and Reeve stand in the crossfire — and it will take two brave souls to fight for the ultimate love.

✿ Excerpt ✿

It hit me like a ton of bricks. So heavy and hard it almost took me to my knees. Roark had been going after the thing that mattered most to me from the very beginning. I cared about the people that still had a shot to make it out of the Point. I fought for the innocent and the young because I often felt like no one else was going to. Every person that Roark had hurt, had twisted, had infected in his quest to exact his revenge had been someone I'd sworn I would protect and keep safe.

It started with the kid whose neck he snapped and ditched outside of the Pit. Just some dumb jock barely in his twenties that liked to gamble, but he was just a kid and deserved a better end. Then it was the club. Before it burned to the ground, Nassir had been deliberately lured away and all the victims were just kids out looking for some trouble and fun. They lost their lives doing what kids all across the country did every single day. After that it was the girl on the dock and the armed stripper at Spanky's. Two girls too young to be caught up in that kind of life and too young to be dead. Two girls I should've been able to keep safe. And lastly there was my brother. Sure, Bax was far from innocent, far from having a shot at a good and law-abiding life, but he was still my only family, my blood, and even if I had let him down in the past, I took my duty to keep him safe and keep him out of trouble to heart now. Killing Bax would have served the dual purpose of exacting revenge on the man who Roark thought was responsible for his father's death and rubbing salt into the wound I would suffer for being unable to protect him.

The realization of how insidious and malicious as well as how fucking brilliant in his evil machinations Roark was had me shaking so hard I almost missed Brysen's words as she whispered "Someone needs to stop him; he can't be allowed to go after anyone anymore."

I blew out a breath and tried to steady myself. "I'm trying."

She narrowed her very blue eyes. "Try harder."

No wonder Race was sprung on her. She looked like a doll but had the bite of a barracuda. She was his perfect match in that way — all golden and glossy on the outside but made of stronger, more resilient stuff on the inside. If Roark did have Karsen, I sure hoped the younger Carter was as tough as Brysen.

Just as the big, black utility vehicles with SWAT team members and the bomb technicians rolled up to the scene, the metal front doors at the front of the school clanked open and Booker came striding through with his arm wrapped around an obviously shaken and upset Karsen. The teen looked so tiny and fragile next to the giant man that it had murderous rage toward Roark thumping heavy not just through my heart but the heart of the beast that was wide awake in my chest and hungry for retribution.

Brysen let out a squeal and took off running toward the duo. I should've stopped her considering the building still wasn't secure and I still had no idea where Roark was lurking, but I didn't have the heart to keep her away from her sister. The two blondes hugged and then they were both crying as Booker was ripped away from the teen and slapped into cuffs by the same cop he has shoved over only moments before.

Karsen started yelling when the cop started to haul Booker away, but Brysen shushed her and guided her over to where I was still standing. I watched curiously as the guys dressed in black tactical gear unloaded a robot that looked like something from Star Wars and used a computer to guide it toward the front of the school. I was dying to know if they were going to find anything or if this had all been some elaborate ruse Roark had staged only to show me he had me right where he wanted me.

"Are you okay?" The teenager was crying big, fat, silent tears but she looked unharmed. She nodded and looked in the direction where the cops had taken Booker.

"Why is he getting arrested? He was the only one that came and looked for me." Ouch. That accusation burned hot across my skin.

"He pushed a cop. They tend to take offense at that. Why were you still inside the building, Karsen? What happened?" I didn't want to press her too hard because she was obviously pretty shaken up but I didn't have any time to waste either.

✿ Excerpt ✿

"You kiss my wife and enjoy it, I remove your balls in your sleep." Jaymeson said in a chipper voice as he slapped me on the back.

"Always great working with a real professional, Jaymeson, always great," I muttered.

"Here's a tip," Jaymeson whispered in a low voice so Pris couldn’t hear us. "Get it done on the first take so I don't have to cause an on-set accident where I set your trailer on fire and blame it on God smiting you for being a Hollywood heathen."

"Heathen?" I repeated with a smirk. "Isn't that the part I'm playing? I thought Demetri was hot for Nat, so doesn't that mean I need to be hot for your wife? Your very..." I glanced at Pris. "...lovely wife?"

"Bastard. I should never have cast you!"

I burst out laughing. "Jay, you know I'm messing with you. I'm professional. That's why you cast me, because in a sea of Hollywood heathens, I'm the only one who wouldn't make a pass at your wife."

He shrugged. "True. Also you may be passable in the whole looks department, or so I've been told by numerous people on set."


"Hardly." He rolled his eyes. "I'm Jamie Jaymeson. Women tattoo my name on their asses and ask me to sign their boobs."

"You signed whose boobs?" Pris asked, sneaking up on our conversation.

"My grandma's," I blurted. "She's such—" I wrapped an arm around Jaymeson and squeezed. "— a huge fan."

"Right." Jaymeson coughed. "It's always such a thrill, signing elderly ladies tits. Hey, you think I should do a nursing home tour?"

"Yeah, man." I nodded. "Dream big."
