This Frenemies to Lovers story is written by the iconical BJ Wane. Unlike the stupendous Virginia Bluebloods series {Luckily now available in one terrific book, (Which I just bought to have all of my favorites under one roof so-to speak.) And also unlike the Miami Masters series(again, so much yumminess) Mia is a standalone. For now I hope.

Mia runs a nursery/flower service, and she’s been rather irked to see sherriff Nolan MacGregor and having to send flowers to his flavors of the week, so she gets into a confrontation with him whenever she sees him. But after two run-ins out on the town, Nolan decides to act on the passion he’s had with the crazy woman he’s had feelings for, for the last 10  years and shows her a little of what it means to be his.

But his job will come back to haunt them both and they will need to rely on their training and wits to get her through what’s next.Will Love Lost survive?

I think you want the answer to that as much as I did. BJ strikes another homerun out of the park with this standalone!

5 Stars!

Blurb for Claiming Mia
Newly divorced Mia Reynolds doesn’t like Chief Nolan MacGregor. His arrogance gets under her skin, but it’s her body’s instant reaction every time he levels that cobalt gaze upon her or hints at giving her what he keeps insisting she wants that really gets to her. After her husband’s betrayal, she’s sworn off getting involved with anyone, and certainly isn’t
going to trust her fragile heart with the town’s reformed bad boy.

Nolan wants Mia and refuses to let her prickly stubbornness stand in his way. Once he entices her into an affair and shows her the benefits of submitting to him, her off-the-charts responses prove he was right all along – she is the one for him. When his investigation into an illegal drug ring implicates Mia’s business, he never stops believing in her innocence.

When the Feds go around him, Mia refuses to believe he hadn’t been with her just to keep an eye on her and her nursery for proof the drugs were coming in on the trucks carrying her landscaping orders.

Mia’s reluctance to trust Nolan completely lands her in trouble with a drug trafficker and it isn’t until she is kidnapped that she realizes what her insecurities and refusal to let go of the past might have cost her…

Publisher’s Note: This steamy contemporary romance contains elements of power exchange.

An excerpt taken from
Claiming Mia
Thirty minutes later, she stood reaching for a potted vase sitting on the top shelf in the showroom when the bell over the door pealed.  Before she could climb off the short stool, hard hands clasped her waist and lifted her down as if she weighed nothing.  Flustered, she looked up, gritted her teeth and shifted in uncomfortable awareness when her eyes met Chief Nolan MacGregor’s amused gaze.  Okay, she admitted it wasn’t the man’s physical appearance she objected to.  What woman wouldn’t look twice at a six foot two, broad shouldered, slim hipped man who wore a Stetson tipped low enough to draw the eyes to the slit of his cobalt blue gaze?  No, it was the arrogant dominance he wore like a comfortable coat that put her on edge whenever he entered her place, more so now he was crowding her against the shelves and making her even more aware of that ripped body.  She much preferred easy-going, polite men.

Wishing it was anyone but him, she stated with a huff, “You’re crowding me, Chief.”

Those sensuous lips curved in a slow smile as he stepped back.  “I wouldn’t make you so uncomfortable if you’d let yourself cut loose with me.”

Damn.  There went that warm flush spreading through her body when he thumbed back his hat far enough for those enigmatic, blue eyes to zero in on her with a long perusal.  He made no effort to hide the appreciative trail he took from her braided, dark brown hair to her sneaker-clad feet.  How one look from him could make her dormant body sit up and take notice when she didn’t even like the man was beyond her.  She sure as heck didn’t like it.  She’d never been one to be ruled by baser urges, instead preferring a positive connection with a man or woman before embarking on a friendship, something that was definitely lacking between her and the chief.

Shuffling behind the counter, Mia breathed a sigh of relief once she put the wide, butcher block space between them.  She glanced up, way up at the only man who’d been able to get under her skin.  There wasn’t one thing she could pinpoint that rubbed her the wrong way; instead, it seemed to be the uneasy combination of arrogance, dominance and male magnetism she objected to, and her betraying body’s response to those undesirable traits.  There was no use denying the way her pulse spiked under the slow stroke of his ice-blue eyes that was as potent as a caress, a reaction she should be used to by now since it had been occurring from the moment she first set eyes on him kissing that woman all those years ago.

“Thanks, Chief, but I have enough on my plate right now to keep me from even thinking about being added to your long list of conquests,” she returned primly, ignoring his taunting smirk.  “Thank you for your order.  Trish has it ready for you.”
She pulled the vase forward.

“I didn’t peg you as the type to listen to small town rumors, Ms. Reynolds.”  He nodded at the colorful arrangement.  “Nice, thank you.  I’m glad I caught you in.”  The way he drew out Ms. Reynolds in a slow drawl hinted he knew about the finalization of her divorce.  He and every other citizen in Whitetail.

Reaching into his breast pocket, Chief McGregor pulled out two tickets and slid them across the counter toward her.  Tilting his hat back even further, he offered her a better view of his rugged face bronzed by sun and wind and capped with coal black hair tinted grey around his forehead.  “You haven’t paid these.”

“I’m sorry, I’ve been so busy, I forgot.”  Picking up the parking tickets, she winced at the fines.  Her habit of pulling over and parking wherever it was convenient to expedite her errands resulted in a parking fine more often than not.  That was just one of Pete’s constant complaints that went along with her always being in a hurry.  “I can come in later this afternoon and take care of them.”

Leaning on the counter, he replied in that deep voice that never failed to curl her toes.  “See that you do.  Or, better yet, don’t.  Now that you’re officially free, it’ll give me a good excuse to offer you a choice of consequences.”

The corners of his mouth kicked up in another smile, but she couldn’t miss the hint of a threat behind his words that set her heart to hammering with uncertainty.  That didn’t concern her near as much as the sudden warm gush between her legs.

She didn’t even like the man, for pity’s sake, and she really didn’t care for his forward insinuations.

More News:

before. And now, he’s her only chance for survival.
When former Special Forces soldier Finn Bollinger is asked to help with

But the Army damn well didn’t teach Finn how
to handle Charlotte Devereux. She’s back and she’s all sorts of bad
news. 
Charlotte can’t change the past. Can’t change the choices she made or
the fact that they cost her everything. All she can do is endure the fallout.
Even if that means putting her future in the hands of Finn, the man who has
every right to want to destroy her.
And can in so many more ways than he thinks.
When Finn’s undercover mission goes impossibly wrong, he’ll have to
depend on Charlotte’s strength in order to survive. But everyone has a
breaking point.
He’s fighting

The second book in Janie Crouch’s Linear Tactical series is all about second chances. Charlotte “Charlie” Devereaux is back in town, and Finn Ballinger wants to know why. She’s come to tutor his son, but she has a master’s  degree in education.
Things have gone very wrong for Charlie, and all she wants is to get her life back as a teacher, and maybe for Finn to believe in her again. But someone wants her finished, and it’s up to Finn and linear Tactical to find out.
This was a fun read, even though there were a few times I wanted to throttle Finn.

I have to say, I have always been a huge fan of Red Phoenix’s, and her series about Brie’s Submission is one of my absolute favorite. Now, we get to see a whole new perspective! We go back in time a bit to when Sir Thane Davis was just college kid Thane Davis.

We see from his view how he meets his college roommate, his vodka swilling lab partner and more! It was a blast getting to see back to the early days back before Sir and Brie.

I totally LOVED this series and I cannot WAIT to see what comes next in this trilogy.

Excerpt
From the 1st Chapter: Surprise
Encounter
(The
Library Scene)
I watch
with interest as she gives me a flirtatious grin, adjusting her glasses before
getting up and heading to the reference section of the library. She’s wearing a
midline skirt that is conservative but still sways enticingly as she walks away
from me.
Taking her
cue, I set down my pen and leave my calculations on the table a few minutes
later. I survey the other students here, noting that they all seem preoccupied
and are not interested in what I am doing.
The
librarian, however, stares me intently as I walk past her. I give her a slight
nod, acknowledging her station, and watch with a sense of satisfaction as she
blushes.
Heading
deep into the reference section, I find my chestnut beauty hidden in the back.
A smile spreads across her face as I approach.
As she
opens her mouth to speak, I put my finger on those red lips and shake my head.
There will be no words between us.
I replace
my finger with my lips, pressing my mouth against hers.
Kissing her
gently at first, I feel her body respond to mine, and I slip my tongue into her
mouth.
She moans
softly, so I pull away shaking my head. The only way this continues is if she
stays totally silent.
Looking at
me with those sultry eyes, she tilts her chin up, begging for another kiss.
I claim
those sensual lips again while my hand begins exploring her curves. As my hand
moves downward, I grasp her waist, pulling her against me so she can feel my
growing excitement.
It has been
a while since I’ve felt the thrill of penetration, and my cock aches in
anticipation of it.
Hiking up
her skirt, I push her back against the shelves, the scent of old books
surrounding us as I feel between her legs. Her panties are already wet, letting
me know she’d been fantasizing about this encounter ever since she sat down
next to me.
Naughty girl…
I slip my
hand under the thin material and struggle not to groan when I feel the slick
warmth of her pussy. My body burns with desire.
Knowing
time is of the essence, I slip her panties down to her knees and unzip my
jeans.  I pull a condom from my wallet
and watch her eyes widen as I roll it down over my hard shaft.
Sliding the
head of my cock against her tight opening, I take a few moments to build up the
sexual tension. The sound of a low cough echoing from somewhere in the library
only adds to the excitement of what we are about to do.
Looking
deep into her eyes, I lift her leg to open her pussy to me and slowly push my
cock into her.
She makes
the barest of sounds and I immediately pull out, raising my eyebrow. Looking at
me desperately, she bites her lip to show she’s serious about keeping silent.
I kiss
those red lips again as I slide my shaft back into her, pushing even deeper.
She trembles with need when I begin thrusting. The excitement of having sex in
the college library has both our hearts racing.
The small
beads of perspiration on her skin cause those sexy glasses to slip down the
bridge of her nose. I take them off and carefully set them on a shelf before
gripping her buttocks tight. I begin stroking her deeper while keeping eye
contact as I climb toward climax.
I want her
to join me and pull out slightly so I can reach down between her legs and play
with her swollen clit while I continue to thrust into her with my hard cock.
Unfortunately,
the cougher seems to be on the move and, by the sound of it, he’s headed
straight toward us.
It seems
the idea of being caught turns my chestnut beauty on, because her pupils grow
wider just before I feel her pussy squeeze my shaft with her orgasm. My body
instinctually responds, thrusting deeper as I follow with my own climax.
I quickly
pull out, slipping my cock back into my pants, condom and all. She barely has
time to pull up her panties and fix her skirt before he walks by our section.
I lean into
her, kissing her passionately to hide the reason for her panting breath, then
turn to give the guy a hard stare, letting him know he’s interrupted us.
He shrugs,
giving me an apologetic grin before covering his mouth and wandering off amid
another bout of coughing.
I look down
at her and smile as I gently place the glasses back on her face. Giving her one
last kiss, I signal that she should leave first. She glances back at me with
that coy grin just before disappearing around the corner.

Cover Reveal:Black Light: Fearless by Maren Smith💕

Knotty Girl Reviews is squirming in our seats for this hot new release in the Black Light Series!

Black Light: Fearless by Maren Smith

Coming November 16

He was the last thing she thought she needed, but she was everything he wanted.

Abused and alone, Kitty had no idea how far she’d have to flee after she finally got the courage to run. She never would have guessed she’d end up halfway around the world, or in the home — much less the arms — of dominant Australian whip-master, Noah Carver.

He knows she’s damaged, that she needs safety and time to heal, but the way her submission calls to him has Noah thinking more about what could be between them than her history.

The only question now is what she fears more: standing up to her abusive ex-dom, or staying with a man she’s afraid to love?
