Dreams Collide by Kristina Beck

Title: Dreams Collide
Series: Collide Series #2
Author: Kristina Beck
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Standalone)
Release Date: December 5, 2017
Tina craves adventure, food, and her new client, restaurant owner Gerry. At sixteen, Tina was full of energy, fearless, and desperate to get out of New Jersey. But her dreams shattered when her mother died tragically. She was thrust into the role of mothering her family while hiding the horrible truth of that day.
Now that Tina feels she’s paid her penance, she wants to rediscover the ambitious girl she used to be. With her new dream job and a move to Hoboken, it’s her time to spread her wings. Tina’s first client is a restaurant owner who tempts her—not only with food but with himself. She’d felt this kind of attraction only once before in college and is flooded with memories of an unforgettable kiss. One of her biggest regrets.
Gerry desires anonymity, a new life, and the beautiful website designer Tina. 
Gerry fled Germany to escape the destruction of his reputation. After months of staying under the radar, he opens a restaurant in New York City. When he hires a website design firm, Gerry finds himself working closely with Tina—whom he had a taste of years ago and now finds a sweet indulgence.
Even as they admit their attraction to each other, an unexpected circumstance threatens to separate them again. Will their love be strong enough to give up their dreams? Or will someone be left behind?
     “No complaints from me. You look good, but I don’t know how you stay fit when you’re surrounded by food all day.” I gesture with my hand toward his body.

     “You love food and have a great body.”
     “Excuse me.” I point my finger back and forth between us. “Just friends, remember?”
     “What? You just said the same to me. Friends can’t say that?”
     A boat passes us a little too closely, and I say to the couple, “We’re just friends.”
     “It doesn’t look like it to me,” the woman says. She winks at Gerry.
     He stops rowing. “Oh. I’m sorry. Should I have said you’re as hot as the chili in the ├ęclair you ate? Or as hot as the Sahara Desert? Or so hot that I’m counting the days on the calendar until my hands and lips can burn on your bare skin.” He clenches his jaw.
     I can’t see his eyes through his sunglasses, but I can feel them.
     Holy shit. He’s serious. My hormones are screaming let him.
     “You’re thinking about it too. Admit it.”
     I remain silent and look out at the water. No way am I admitting that. Hide your emotions.
     “I guess it’s going to be a long night. I’m not moving this boat until you admit it.” He lets go of the oars.
     I jump up and step closer to him to grab them.
     “Don’t jump up like that. The oars are attached. We’re fine,” he says as he tries to stabilize the boat.
     It wobbles enough that I lose my balance, falling face first into his lap. Your face is in his lap. Get up! But what if I like it? Get up!
     I push off him to escape the awkwardness. His arms wrap around my waist, preventing me from moving away. We’re face to face as I rest on my knees. I take his sunglasses off to reveal his heated eyes.
     “Why couldn’t you just admit it?” he says with a low voice, his eyes glancing at my lips. “Now look what happened. Not that I mind.”
     I whisper, “I think about it all the time. You all the time.”

Bring the Heat by L. Wilder

Title: Bring the Heat
Author: L. Wilder
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 19, 2017
Cover Models: Darren Birks and Rachel Morris

Photographer: Darren Birks Photography Cover Designer: Wicked Design

Southpaw, Tucker Michaels, was a player on and off the field, and he was looking for his next big score.


Tucker Michaels could bring the heat, striking out anyone who stepped up to the plate, and he was burning up the big leagues.

At least, that’s what I was told.
I had no idea who Tucker Michaels was, and I honestly didn’t care. From the moment I met him, I thought he was an arrogant, foul-mouthed jerk.
I’ll admit he was hot—if you’re into the gorgeous, athletic type, but there was no mistaking the way he looked at me, like I was about to be his next grand slam.
Unfortunately for him, he was about to be the one to strike out. I had no interest in playing games, especially when he was helping my little brother’s baseball team.
But after a week from hell and one too many drinks, I was starting to see another side of the sexy, charismatic player.
Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.
