Review of On the Rocks by Kandi Steiner

On the Rocks
By Kandi Steiner

“Everything was perfect, and if you asked any of my friends, they’d say I was the luckiest girl in Tennessee. So then why did it feel like I was drowning?”

Kandi is one of my go-to, one-click authors, and when she gave us a little sneak peak of her latest project I was SO excited for the words she was about to grace us with. We call her the queen of angst because she can build an emotional plot so intricately that you feel like you’re stuck in that delicious web right along with her characters. When I found out that the upcoming project was a whiskey-loving, southern romance I was chomping at the bit to get my hands on it.

“God help and man or woman who ever tried to break down a Becker.”

Noah Becker. He deserves his own standalone sentence as an intro, because that man stands tall, proud, and alone. Sure, he’s not a stranger to having a woman in his bed, but nothing has caught his attention past that.

Until Ruby Grace comes strolling back into town in her stilettos.

Review of The Marriage Effect by Karla Sorensen

The Marriage Effect
By Karla Sorensen

Ooooh, baby! I have been waiting for the Logan and Paige book for what feels like forever, and gotdamn Karla didn’t let me down! The Washington Wolves series has been my first deep dive into the Sorensen world, and she was also my first go at sports-romance. The reason being: I played collegiate sports, and I was always worries that the books would reveal a lack of knowledge about the sport that was contained inside it’s pages. Well, Karla, you absolutely did your homework.

You know what you’re talking about, and it doesn’t go unnoticed by the reader. It amplifies your book and gives it that next level feel, and it so damn good that your readers are buying Washington Wolves jerseys! That’s incredible.

So, to get to the actual book:

Paige has intrigued me since the moment we met her in The Bombshell Effect. The long-legged, redheaded, beauty with a spitfire mouth to boot. I immediately wanted more. I needed to know why she quit modeling, and I needed to know who was going to “tie her down” so to speak (because let’s be honest, no one can tie her down).

“Do you critique every man who approaches you?” he asked.
“No,” I said easily. I shrugged one shoulder. “But the things is, most women feel like they can't be honest when a man comes up to us in a social setting and says something stupid or annoying or cheesy. And my thing is, how will they ever learn? We’re taught to smile and be nice and be charming because that’s what a good girl does. But if a guy comes up to me and smacks me on the ass and hands me a drink that he so graciously bout, shouldn’t I be allowed to tell him that I don’t particularly appreciate the gesture?”
