“I don’t know how she does it, but this series gets better and better with each book.” ~ Latifa M


“No Control by T.C. Matson a five-star read that will fight for control of your heart.” ~ Sara O.


“TC Matson has written another incomparable book in the Fighter Series. Who would have thought that these tough Alpha males she writes about could have a soft marshmallow interior for their women!”~Maura P


“T.C. Matson once again delivers a book that will keep you glued to its pages.” ~Michaela Z


“A hero in more ways than one Carter totally stole the show for me in this book.” ~ Britt Franks Red Hatter Book Blog

“Dreaming in Reality…You dream in reality when you pick up a book and get lost in it. In my writing, I strive to take you to a place where reality and fantasy become a blurry line. Everything should be relatable. It could happen…couldn’t it?” ~ TC Matson

TC Matson loves to let her character’s voices be heard. With a head full of stories, she puts her keyboard through a beating daily. With an understanding that love isn’t always instant and full of flowers—her writing mirrors it.

She’s a romance junkie at heart and an avid reader. Add those two together and she will devour books within hours, getting lost in the world the author creates.

Matson resides in the peaceful Piedmont area of NC with her husband and three boys, where staying hopped up on caffeine is the key to her sanity. Chaos is indefinite and a sense of humor is an absolute must.


HOSTED BY:

Carter is a MMA fighter that has lost his dream. Kinley is a strong woman that has been through a lot in her life. The two are attracted to each other from the start of their meeting. A story of finding strength and facing your past with courage. A great read and I will be looking into reading this author again.

EXCERPT:

I shook my head. I didn’t want to stay here, in some place where they spun tales tall enough to make your best friend sleep with a gun under her pillow.

I didn’t want to be that person, not for anything. And something told me that if I stayed here long enough, I wouldn’t be able to help it.
No, I would go to sleep, wake up, collect the supplies I needed from town, and fix the stupid fence. Then I would get a job, save up like crazy, and make a break for it. Maybe I could call my (former) agent and beg him to take me back.

Hell, the Sears Catalog always needs models.

I punched my pillow, trying not to think about this ridiculous place, about all it had seen me lose.

“Idiots,” I muttered, climbing into bed. “They turn their town into a pressure cooker and then they make monsters out of thin—”

A sudden howling cut off my words.

Tensing, I threw off my covers and lurched for the window.

The sound was nothing. A dog, or something. I would prove that to myself.

I glared out into those goddamn woods. See, nothing. Absolutely—

A shadow moved between the trees, hulking and burly, but also tall. Too tall to be an animal.

I blinked hard, once, and then again. When I looked back, there was nothing there.

Stop it, Char.

This place would drive me crazy if I let it. It was nothing. An animal.

I got back in bed, trying to feel more New York and less New Haven.

But somewhere in the back of my mind, I couldn’t let go of the howl…or the markings…or the dead girl who looked just like me.

Review

Dare is a hot rock star and Weatherly is a smart, good girl looking for a one night stand. Trouble is Dare wants more than one night. The two go through many problems to come out on the other side. I love reading about characters from two different worlds. An awesome read.

Some fantasies are better left unsaid.

Besides, I don’t need to act on my dirty dreams, not when my fiancé and I have the kind of after dark adventures others dream of — wild, daring and oh so frequent.

I can’t risk losing him by voicing my deepest, dirtiest desire. But the hotter our role playing gets, the closer I come to telling him what I want most — him and his best friend at the same time.

Until the night I do…

The Engagement Gift is a standalone 20,000 word MFM novella with an HEA and NO cheating! Be prepared for a red-hot story that’ll make you toss off your panties!

 

 

Excerpt:
“You have the right to tell me all your fantasies while I f*&k you hard,” I informed her, then kissed her shoulder blade, eliciting a shudder.

“Anything you say can and will be used by me to turn you all the way on. You have the right to multiple Os.” She rocked her hips back against me.

“If you cannot have multiple Os, I will work harder all night long to give them to you. Do you understand? You’re going to divulge every filthy dream you have…”

“I have never been left so affected by a book. This story totally wrecked me, I can’t complain because the author did warn the reader. ” – Anne M. Goodreads Reviewer


“The depth of angst in this book was beyond anything I could have imagined.” – A.BookNerd.Bookseller&Bibliophile.Blog

“I do.”

Two words woven in love.
In sickness and in health.
For better or for worse.
Til death do us part.
And death dragged us apart.
We both said these vows.
But neither of us kept them.
This is not one of those happy stories.
Life isn’t made of simple choices and happily ever afters.
It’s a dark place.
It’s not easy.
It’s full of mistakes and lessons.
It hurts.
And in the end, those two words said in love, are the same ones said in hate.
“You want a divorce?”
“I do.”





C.L. Matthews resides in Utah, the state with the best snow on earth. She is not a fan of the snow but loves her state just the same. She is known for her swag business and creative pieces. C.L.

Blurb:

He hates the corporate world.

She’s all business.

Now they have to work together

on the one job that could

make or break them both…

Connor became a flight medic

for one reason, and

one reason only.

To help people.

If he can keep his head down

and his past in the past while he’s at it?

Even better.

Until Harlow appears to upend his world

with an offer he can’t refuse.

She’s calculating. Composed.

Scalpel-sharp.

And she’ll stop at nothing to make

her father’s business successful.

Even if that means teaming up with Connor

to turn around a failing clinic.

He shouldn’t like her.

He definitely shouldn’t want her.

But the more they work together

the less he’s able to resist.

But Connor’s secrets run deep.

Will Harlow’s ambition ruin him,

or will she be his salvation?

From USA Today best-seller Kimberly Kincaid comes an enemies-to-lovers story full of emotion and heat. This full-length romance features a muscle-bound veteran flight medic and a smart, tart female CEO finding happily ever after…the hard way.

BETTER THAN ME (then here!) https://kimberlykincaid.com/better-than-me/

Excerpt ( PG-13):

Christ, her need was pouring off her in waves, each one of them slamming into his chest. Without breaking the connection of their mouths, Harlow reached down, yanking his shirt up just far enough to close her fingers around the waistband of his scrubs.

It took everything he had—and he really meant everything—to capture her fingers with his own and bring them to stillness. “Wait,” he said against her lips.

“No.” She grasped the hem of her sweater, yanking the heavy material up and over her head. The move made her hair wild around her face, but not enough to cover the emotion there.

“Yes.”

Harlow froze, her eyes glinting in the low light. “Connor, I want—”

“I know what you want, sweetheart. But I want something, too.”

Her brows gathered in question, and he cupped her face to answer.

“Let me in, Harlow.” He tipped her chin back, kissing the juncture where her jaw came together by her ear. “If all you want to do tonight is feel, then let me make you feel perfect. Slow down and let me make you feel everything.”

About Kimberly:

Kimberly Kincaid writes contemporary romance that splits the difference between sexy and sweet and hot and edgy romantic suspense. When she’s not sitting cross-legged in an ancient desk chair known as “The Pleather Bomber”, she can be found practicing obscene amounts of yoga, whipping up anything from enchiladas to éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. Kimberly is a USA Today best-selling author and a 2016 and 2015 RWA RITA® finalist and 2014 Bookseller’s Best nominee who lives (and writes!) by the mantra that food is love. Kimberly resides in Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters.

Review

Connor is the ex military now ER nurse with tattoos and plenty of dirty talk. He loved helping his community. Harlow is all business and determined to make her father proud. The two clash at first as their personalities are different. The attraction is simmering beneath the surface as the couple realize they need to compromise to get what they both want for the hospital. I enjoyed this sexy, steamy read and recommend it along with the other books in this series.

4 Stars
