Pretty Little Player by J. Kenner is LIVE!!! It’s time to meet Cayden and Gracie! I'm so looking forward to starting this series. Full post → http://bit.ly/2Gp51k4⠀

About the book:⠀
⠀
Bedroom games are fine … but I need a woman who won’t play with my heart.⠀
⠀
After years in the military, I’ve faced down a lot of things, and there’s not much I shy away from. Except relationships. Because when you catch your wife in bed with another man, that tends to sour even the most hardened man against women.⠀
⠀
When I was hired to keep surveillance on a woman with a checkered past, I went into the job anticipating the worst. But what I found was a woman who turned my head. Who made my blood heat and my body burn. A woman who made me feel alive again.⠀
⠀
A woman who was nothing like what I expected, but everything I wanted. A woman who, it turned out, needed my protection. And wanted my touch.⠀
⠀
And as the world fell out from under us, and everything I thought I knew shifted, there was only one reality I could hold onto—that the more I got to know her, the more I wanted her.⠀
⠀
But if I’m going to make her mine, I’ll have to not only keep her safe, I’ll have to prove to her that I’ve conquered my own fears and doubts. That I’m done looking into the past, and that all I want is a future—with her.⠀

About the book: ⠀
⠀
When Scarlet Cooper takes a new job as a nanny, she assumes she’s going to work for the rich couple who hired her. But instead of pulling up to their million-dollar estate, she finds herself on the front porch of a humble farmhouse, looking into the eyes of dark and brooding single dad, Weston Dawson. ⠀
⠀
It’s bad enough that Weston doesn’t have a fortune to charm out of him, but he’s also a cop.  After marrying his high school sweetheart only to have her up and leave weeks after their baby was born, Weston has sworn off women for life. All that matters now is taking care of his son, Jackson.⠀
⠀
If anyone can break down the tough exterior of the former soldier, it’s Scarlet. But just when she’s close to getting exactly what she wants, she’s faced with a whole new challenge, which just might be the biggest con she’s ever pulled: pretending she doesn’t love him. ⠀

Happy Wednesday! I've got a new #bookreview up on the blog for Complicated by Kristen Ashley. I actually bought this book the week of release and then life got in the way and I never got to it. I'm glad I finally took the time to read it, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Find my full review on my blog → http://bit.ly/2AVSpLA (link to blog in bio).⠀
⠀
Anyone else buy books when they're released and then not get to them in a timely manner? I have a few that are years old... it's kind of ridiculous, lol!⠀

How is it December already? Seriously! Now that the tree is up and the house is decorated I need to start my shopping. Today, however, is not that day, lol! Instead, I'm sharing my November Review Recap → http://bit.ly/2QfJUFG (link to blog in bio). I only posted 5 new reviews but that's okay, I was crazy busy so I'm calling it good. As a bonus, they were all great reads, another win!⠀
⠀
Do you read more, less, or the same during the holidays? The past couple of years I've read like any other month but this year I already feel myself slowing down. With people coming to visit and prep to do, I know there's no way I can keep the same pace I have... and I'm cool with that. I plan on going with the flow. What about you?⠀
