WHNK Cover.png
I never learn my lesson.
And I always want what I can’t have.
When Sarah Henderson walks into my life, I tell myself she’s off limits. She’s my student, sixteen years younger than me, and my boss’s niece. It doesn’t matter that I see the same pain reflected in her eyes that I have in my own, or that the dead organ better known as my heart kicks to life when she’s around.
I’ve been here before, and I know how this ends.
It’s been two years since I fell for the last woman I knew I couldn’t have, the one with the ring on her finger that I chose to ignore.
Two years of trying to overcome that heartache when Sarah slides into my life.
Another woman I can’t have. Another woman I can’t stop myself from wanting.
I never learn my lesson, but with a constant reminder of how that last forbidden love burned, I think I’ve finally learned this one.
This time, I won’t chase what’s off limits.
This time, I’m staying away.
And I’ll keep telling myself that until I believe it.

About Kandi:
Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

What He Never Knew is set two years on from the events of the previous two books in this series and although it’s not necessary to read those first i highly recommend you do as I think it will help understand Reese and his past a little more. 

Piano teacher Reese is finally in a place where he thinks he’s kind of doing ok. He’s got his job teaching and he plays piano in a bar but honestly this guy is such a loner. He’s lost everyone he loves and he deals with it as best as he can but there’s something missing in his life. He’s just going through the motions. That changes when he’s asked to tutor his boss’s niece. Sarah is nothing like he was expecting. She’s super talented for one thing but she’s broken. Possibly more than Reese is. 

Sarah’s life was ruined one night, leaving her broken and damaged, with no choice but to walk away from everything she’s ever wanted. My heart broke for Sarah. She may be broken but she won’t be beaten and I loved her determination to achieve her goals no matter what has happened. When her uncle mentions he’s friends with Reese Walker, Sarah hopes he can help her overcome her injury so she has a chance of achieving her dream. She wasn’t expecting him to be just as broken as she is. Nor was she expecting him to see her, to see what she’s trying to hide from everyone else and she definitely wasn’t expecting the sparks that fly between them. 

This book was exactly what I’ve come to expect from Kandi Steiner. It’s emotional, the characters aren’t perfect, they have strengths and weaknesses like everyone else, they have their flaws and their scars but they’re still standing. After reading the previous books in this series I was so conflicted and torn about how I felt about Reese but this book let me see a different side to him and I admit he definitely won me over. This is a beautifully written story and if you’ve read the previous books you’re going to want to read this. 

Cover Reveal...Diary Of A Bad Boy by Meghan Quinn

     Dear Diary, I might have gotten myself into a wee bit of trouble—and I'm not talking about the "court mandated community service," or “therapy sessions from bashing a bloke in the head" kind of trouble. I wish it were that simple. Nope. I’m talking about the "falling in love with one of my client's daughters,” kind of trouble . . . The kind of problem I can’t talk my way out of when the truth gets out. How I ended up with her phone is a long story—and when she called to get it back, I took things a bit too far. One innocent exchange wound up leading to so much more. Fun, new, and totally immune to my charm, Sutton is different. And I had no idea she was the daughter of Foster Green. Blame it on the dark colored stout running through my veins, pushing me toward one bad decision after another. Pushing me toward her even though I know right from wrong; even though she's my client's daughter. Dating her might be the best or worst decision I've ever made. Only time, whiskey, and one more roll around the mattress with her will tell.             USA Today Bestselling Author, wife, adoptive mother, and peanut butter lover. Author of romantic comedies and contemporary romance, Meghan Quinn brings readers the perfect combination of heart, humor, and heat in every book.

4.5 stars 

This is my first book by this author. I really need to check out her other books soon.

I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next one, I really liked the characters I really like J D so dominate. Gabrielle, I think she is such a good character too. 

Really enjoyed the story and the plot and it is very well written.

Author Bio

A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories. 

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.

When she's not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you've ever seen, Eva's creating chapters in her own love story.

Release Blitz & Review...Anguished by T.L. Smith

Title: Anguished
Series: Crimson Elite #2
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: Romance (standalone)
Release Date: February 19, 2019
It wasn’t meant to be this way—she shouldn’t have fallen for my brother and left me for him. But she did. And now I’m left to pick up the pieces of my shattered, broken heart. And to top it off, they want me to come to their wedding. Do they think I’m a pushover? Do they think of me as a joke? The old saying stands true, ‘why have enemies when you can have family.’
I understand it now, better than I ever have in my life.
There’s one unexpected surprise though, Storm. She blew in just like one and makes the pain diminish. She’s exactly as her name describes her—she is a storm. A beautiful and powerful one.
But not all things are meant to last. Like a storm that wreaks havoc, some things cause anguish, and in my life she may very well be one of them.


Anguished is the second book in the Crimson Elite series and focuses on Echo and his story. 

What can I say about Echo? He’s my ten! He’s very enticing, there’s something about him. He gives off this alpha, dominant vibe but there’s a vulnerability to him that had me tumbling head over heels for him. He’s been hurt badly in the past and he’s constantly having that wound prodded and poked so it’s never really healed. When he meets Storm the attraction between them is instant and they’re both after the same thing. One night, no strings, hot sex. Everything is going to plan until Storm realises Echo has something that belongs to her so she’s going to have to see him again...and so the cat and mouse games begin. 

I loved Echo and Storm. The chemistry between them is perfect and both characters are extremely easy to like. The other Crimson Elite guys pop up in Anguished and I think TL Smith has made me fall in love with all of them (even though we haven’t got to meet Darby and Falcon yet). The friendship between these guys is everything! They may bicker but they’ve got each other’s backs. 

I loved this book and I can’t wait for more from this series.
