"Still is a masterpiece of love, lust and human feeling.  Poetic and sexy beyond compare, Still will have you turning everything you know upside down and laughing, crying and panting through Grip and Bristol's journey.  Five 'bruising' stars!"

-- Sierra Simone, USA Today Bestselling author

Enter the $50 Gift Card Release Giveaway!


I'll be there.

Through thick and thin.

Ride or die.

You can count on me.

The promises people make. The vows we take.

Assumptions of the heart.

Emotion tells us how we feel, but has a way of plunging us in boiling water, burning away our illusions, testing our faith, trying our convictions.

Love floating is a butterfly, but love tested is an anchor.

For Grip and Bristol,

Love started at the top of the world

On a Ferris wheel under the stars

But when that love is tested, will they fly or fall?

Sara Ney's How To Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours Review

He's not a douchebag; but that doesn't stop his friends from turning him into one.


So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus, in bold printed letters:

Are you the lucky lady who's going to break our roommate's cherry?
Him: socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: must have a pulse. He will reciprakate with oral. Text him at: 555-254-5551

The morons can't even spell. And the texts I've been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I'm not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one.


One text stands out from hundreds. One number I can't bring myself to block. She seems different. Hotter, even in black and white.

However, after seeing her in person, I know she's not the girl for me. But my friends won't let up--they just don't get it. Douchebags or not, there's one thing they'll never understand: GIRLS DON'T WANT ME. 

Especially her.

Are you ready for a 6 star read?!

Holy smokes people Sara New is a writer after my own heart! I thought I loved the first 2 books in this series....BUT SHE BLEW MY MIND WITH THIS BOOK!! Hands down this will be my favorite book of 2017. No competition. My emotions while reading this book still has me reeling. I can't wait to get caught up on ARC's so I can go back and read it again! 

Okay so let me start off by stating this review is going to be a little different from my usual reviews because the author wants the identities of the characters to be a surprise to her readers. So I really can't talk about much without giving away spoilers. So I'm going to share my status updates from goodreads while reading.

Number 1. The first chapter had me scratching my head with who the POV was from. I was a little surprised.

We are introduced to our Him and Her(my names for them ha) and I'm a little unsure about both of them. Until this happens....

Are you the lucky lady who's going to break our roommate's cherry?
Him: socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: must have a pulse. He will reciprakate with oral. Text him at: 555-254-5551

And oh my goodness the text messages that start appearing on His phone! These girls are WOW with their texts to Him. And then She starts texting Him and I was giddy!! My status update at 19% said "These text messages are making me giddy!!

Everything is going smoothly until....all of a sudden I'm crying for HIM!!!! Tears are running down my face. I am hurting for this boy who doesn't deserve what is happening to him.

Then things start to look up for Him and Her and he was seriously making me melt.  There is one scene where I was freaking HOT!!

I DID NOT WANT THIS BOOK TO END! I need more Douchebags in my life!!!! Sara New is an automatic 1-click author for me now.  If you haven't had the pleasure of reading  this series go grab them now! And they are on audio now too for the audiobook lovers!

Releasing September 26th, and available for Pre-Order.

LUCAS by Sawyer Bennett is LIVE!

Lucas (Cold Fury, Book #8)

Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: September 19, 2017

The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is stacked with hotshots. But when a new player joins their ranks, he learns that even superstars can’t go it alone when it comes to love.

Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league’s fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury—and to play alongside his big brother, Max—is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most . . . er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder.

Museum curator Stephanie Frazier has always put business before pleasure, which just about explains her nonexistent sex life. But when Stephanie meets Luc at a champagne-fueled gala, she finds herself flirting like crazy—and going home with the uninhibited athlete. For one night, she learns what passion is all about. She just never counted on the little surprise Luc leaves behind. And that’s when things really start to get . . . interesting.

Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

I love hockey books, and Sawyer Bennett’s Cold Fury series has really hit the spot for me. These books are steamy, sweet, and entertaining. I get excited whenever I see a new one is coming out. I was especially excited to read Lucas’s book after meeting him in Max’s.

Lucas is not on the same path as his brother. Marriage and kids are not in his near future. He’s perfectly content playing hockey and playing the field. When he meets Stephanie Frazier, a stunning woman who is on the same page as him, it’s a match. They are a match in a lot of ways, but Stephanie grew up in a way much different than Luc and it’s shaped the way she sees things…

It’s a gamble whether we can truly maintain this, but I suspect both of us are enjoying each other so much that we are refusing to consider this is probably the dumbest idea two people could ever come up with.

Lucas is such a great guy. Seriously, he was near perfect. I say ‘near’ because there was one part I wanted to throw something at him, but overall I adored him. Stephanie was frustrating at times, but I always feel like if I can understand WHY characters are frustrating, I can deal with it easier. And I can definitely understand the ‘why’ of Steph’s behavior.

What I didn't love... I really wanted the epilogue to be from Steph or Luc’s pov. I needed more of them! I’m sure I’ll get it in future Cold Fury books though, but I still wanted to see in this book. But OMG after finishing I am dying for Van’s book! I hope it’s next because I can’t wait!!!

As always, it’s great to catch up with some of the other Cold Fury players and their families. We got a lot of Max and Jules which was awesome! If you are a fan of sports romance, this is one you want to pick up!

About the Author:

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.

Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.
