Rock Star (Bad Boy Homecoming, #5) by Stacey Kennedy Review

Rock Star (Bad Boy Homecoming, #5)Rock Star by Stacey Kennedy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stacey Kennedy’s ROCK STAR is an entertaining second chance romance. The last person Veterinarian, Rae Evans, expects to bump into at her ten-year high school reunion is her now-famous rock star ex-boyfriend, Travis Walker. This contemporary romance is suitable for adult audiences.

Stacey Kennedy does a wonderful job with her character development. Travis and Rae are both likeable characters. They are both driven. Travis thinks with his heart, whereas Rae, is more practical. The couple never stopped loving each other, despite the years apart. They are both likeable and believable individuals. They are stronger when they are together.

ROCK STAR was skillfully written. I like how the story started out with the prologue. Travis and Rae parted on good terms, having dreams that took them into different directions. I love that Travis returns to Catfish Creek to seek Rae out. ROCK STAR is a thought-provoking and enjoyable read. There were some interesting obstacles and situation the couple faced. I love the ending. It felt well concluded. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Playing For Keeps by Lisa B. Kamps: Giveaway


Will the couple find the strength and courage to put it all on the line 
when love means playing for keeps?


PLAYING FOR KEEPS
York Bombers #3
Lisa B. Kamps
Releasing June 28th, 2017

Tyler Bowie is the serious and focused goalie for the York Bombers. He has his mind on the game and his eye on the future. And he always plays by the rules--until he meets Jennifer Emory, his teammate's sister. What is it about the troubled woman that tempts him to break the biggest rule of all?

Jennifer Emory is looking to start a new life and finds the distraction she needs in Tyler Bowie, her brother's intensely sexy teammate. But the distraction quickly turns to something else. She knows all about the bro code, but there's just something about Tyler that makes her want to take a chance and risk so much more than her brother's ire.

Will the couple find the strength and courage to put it all on the line when love means playing for keeps?








Lisa B. Kamps is the author of the best-selling series The Baltimore Banners, featuring "hard-hitting, heart-melting hockey players" [USA Today], on and off the ice. Her Firehouse Fourteen series features hot and heroic firefighters who put more than their lives on the line. She's introduced a whole new team of hot hockey players who play hard and love even harder in her newest series, The York Bombers.

In a previous life, she worked as a firefighter with the Baltimore County Fire Department then did a very brief (and not very successful) stint at bartending in east Baltimore, and finally served as the Director of Retail Operations for a busy Civil War non-profit.

Lisa currently lives in Maryland with her husband and two sons (who are mostly sorta-kinda out of the house), one very spoiled Border Collie, two cats with major attitude, several head of cattle, and entirely too many chickens to count. When she's not busy writing or chasing animals, she's cheering loudly for her favorite hockey team, the Washington Capitals--or going through withdrawal and waiting for October to roll back around!

Playing For Keeps (York Bombers #3) by Lisa B. Kamps Review

Playing For Keeps (York Bombers, #3)Playing For Keeps by Lisa B. Kamps
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lisa B. Kamps scores a hat trick with the third book in the York Bombers series, PLAYING FOR KEEPS. AHL Goalie, Tyler Bowie, is off his game. On top of that, he is interested in his team mates little sister, Jennifer Emory. A relationship that is off limits due to the bro code. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for new adult and adult audiences.

Lisa B. Kamps continues to do a great job with this series. The story is new and original but has consistent elements with the previous books.

I felt bad for what Jennifer went through with her previous boyfriend, Viktor. He is a complete slime. I appreciated the hockey scene where the boys got into it with him. There is a difference between liking hockey players and being a puck bunny. Jenny is no puck bunny.

Tyler is a likeable character. I could understand why his concentration and game were affected. It would be hard to not be jealous in his situation. He is a good guy who is protective and fair.

I like that the story takes place during the same timeline as the previous book. It is interesting hearing different perspectives of situations from the characters, especially with Jason.

I like that Jenny and Magan became friends. I loved the ending of the book. I’m looking forward to Zach Mummert’s story in book four, PLAYING IT UP. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Half Fae. Half Demon. 100% Badass Bitch.

My sisters and I weren’t born with magic. No, we were forced into it. Betrayed into it by the one person who was supposed to protect us. Now we’re living in a shithole desert town at the mercy of a sexy-as-hell Fae named Bastian.

So far, I’ve been able to buy Violet and Jade time to live freely, without being held to Bastian’s constant call. I’ve been doing his dirty work for five long years, but my sisters’ freedom is wearing thin. Soon he’ll summon them, just as he did me—and I can’t let that happen.

Bastian’s latest assignment offers an escape for my sisters, and I’d be a fool not to take it. But my target is more powerful than any man I’ve faced before, and doubly seductive. He draws out my inner demons—literally—and evading this attraction might prove more difficult than finishing what I started.
