Hooker Line #2: ★Out-Hookered by Brooke Blaine★


Did you know that Brooke Blaine is releasing book 2 in her super fabulous L.A. Liaisons series, eloquently titled as HOOKER? So of course it’s only right that us hookers had to get her sassy ass for an interview on our blogs, #HookerLineStyle of course. It’s the only way we know how. We went into this hoping to out-perve Brooke, and she ended up out-hookering us. My mind is still reeling after. We chat all things Hooker, her LA Liaisons series, nude pics, Tom Hardy, Jason Statham, Tom Hardy peen, high school crushes, kinks with suspenders, and much much more. But why tell you about it, when you could read it for yourself. Make sure you scroll all the way down for an exclusive interview AND a super fabulous giveaway for a chance to win a SIGNED PAPERBACK of Licked and an ARC of HOOKER!

No, this wasn’t your typical fucking interview. It was a fucking awesome interview though! So read below and enjoy!

*no real hookers were harmed in the making of this conversation. But our hooker pride may have gotten a bruise or two*

Lana: Hey hookers!

Brooke Blaine: I’m prepared. Lube, check. Condoms, check. Whipped cream, check.

Alleskelle: Hey Hookers! Good, Brooke, we only practice safe sex here.
Though you might need some other kind of toys to please Lana… (The hardcore stuff)

Geri: Yay! I’m ready when you are guys. Hi Brooke!
We haven’t been properly introduced but I’m Geri and I’m the innocent one in the group.
Shut it, Lana and Alex

Alleskelle: RIGHT. You lie whore! “Innocent.” Such a bad word in your mouth
Geri: LMAO! Nuh-uh. I’m a proper lady. ahem. Ladies in the front, party in the back

Brooke Blaine: Oh gawd. Don’t start with the miss innocent schtick, you’re the HOOKER LINE LADIES.
WELL/ maybe not ladies 😉

Alleskelle: Geri, do I need to remind you? YOU started the anal talk last time and blamed it all on Lana (Though I understand the logic in this)

Lana: LMFAO!!!!!!! I leave for two seconds and it’s already “lube” and “Lana is a whore” : I see it’s regularly scheduled programming here.

Alleskelle: We’re perfectly respectable Ladies still, Brooke. Well maybe not Lana.

Brooke Blaine: I know the truth about Lana


Lana : I already warned Brooke I’ll be throwing out random pervy ice cream names for her
Like Cockies and Cream. Make it happen!

Brooke Blaine : Yes! I need some dirty names

Geri : Hmm, love the sound of that.

Brooke Blaine : Oh is that the best you can do? I expected more from you, perv. I told you I brought the lube right?

Lana : I’m just warming up here

Alleskelle : How did you came up with the hilarious names in Licked, Brooke?

Lana : Yes. Do tell. Inquiring hookers want to know!

Brooke Blaine : Quite literally pulled them out of my ass. Like anal beads.

Lana: You dirty bird. No wonder I like you! LOL

Alleskelle: OMG. We’re being Out-Hookered here! She plays hard


Geri : We need to step up our game. I haven’t read it but just so you know I don’t mind spoilers

Brooke Blaine: What? I should go back to my trailer. You didn’t bring me green m&m’s, you didn’t read my book
This is bullshit.

Geri: LMAO! I sorry?

Lana : You’re missing out, woman! I keep telling you

Alleskelle: Geri you have to read it, I mean are you not curious about what a Cookie Dildough is? The Up the Butt-er Pecan is my fave.




As the owner of Licked, an eclectic ice creamery and bar, Ryleigh Phillips doesn’t have time for that love stuff. Serving up Nibble My Nuts sundaes and Drunken Sailor boozy shakes are as close to an orgasmic affair as she’s had in months thanks to her expanding empire—until the night of her ten-year high school reunion.

When Ryleigh’s crush, gorgeous ex-football god Cameron Mathis, comes streaking into her life (literally—streaking), she begins to wonder if she really can have it all.

Wouldn’t it just figure that the moment you think life is perfect is when it falls spectacularly apart?

Enter Hunter Morgan, the contractor in charge of Licked’s renovations. Devastatingly handsome, and a smartass to boot, he’s got his eyes on Ryleigh from the moment he finds her passed out on his couch (yeah, that’s a long story). There’s just one tiny complication—he happens to be Cameron’s best friend.

When the lines between relationships and friendships blur, and it’s impossible to choose between two delicious flavors, what’s a girl to do? Taste a sample of each? Or go out and get LICKED?


Geri : They’re suppose to be convincing me but the blurb sounds like a triangle. For all those pervy readers like me who don’t like Love Triangles, should we be worried?

Alleskelle : I don’t like love triangles either and it worked for me, Geri.

Lana : Me too! And I hate LT with the fire of the worst kind of venereal disease. #TrueStory

Alleskelle : lol Lana. You said you were game for everything, you hardcore perv!
Geri, rest assured, while the heroine does have 2 love interest after her, the set up is pretty clear about who she’s going to end up with

Lana : YES! And she wasn’t the wishy washy whore that led men on because she felt bad

Brooke Blaine : Noooooooo! I promise I just did that to scare you.

I mean we all loved the Dylan-Brenda-Kelly love triangle in 90210, LET’S BE REAL.


Lana Kart : Brooke, for hookers like Geri here that have been living under a rock, can you introduce your L.A. Liaisons series?

Geri : Yes, please. Lol!

Brooke Blaine : Okay, so L.A. Liaisons stars our quirky heroine, Ryleigh, who at the beginning of the story has a nice little run-in *cough cough* with her high school crush.

And yeah, then she meets high school crush’s bff/roommate and all bets are off, BUT I promise Licked is more of a romcom that makes your heart melt. It doesn’t require tums.

Geri : Ah glad to hear that. You said the magic word. Romcom

Alleskelle : Oh yes, it’s a great RomCom and I loved the premise, old school crush finally seeing HER.

Lana : Gotta say, I loved the way they see each other again (uhem) … while NAKED

Brooke Blaine : Right? All about the cock run-ins

Lana : best EVAH

Brooke Blaine : Aw spanks. I mean it’s how I’d love to run into my high school crush

Geri : Plus you said the word naked… Naked romcoms !

Brooke Blaine : Unless he had a teeny weenie, in which case… Maybe not

Geri : LMAO!

Alleskelle : In which case you’d know you would have pinned for him all for nothing… awww

Brooke Blaine : ~fantasies dashed~


Geri : Sadly, my high school crush… Yeah not going there.

Brooke Blaine : Wait, what if we wanna go there?

Lana : Yeah…I kinda do lol

Alleskelle : Oooh, high school crushes… I used to draw a blank about them. But a few weeks ago we were talking with Geri and she mentioned stalking her exes on social media. o.O

Geri : Are we going to talk about high school crushes? hahahaha! Thank God, my husband doesn’t read it.

Brooke Blaine : I’m so curious now

Lana : Mine was a douchebag.End of story. Hmm…I wonder if there’s any correlation to me loving the alphaholes in my books? *scratches chin*

Ha! Is that where the inspiration for Ryleigh came from?

Geri : I’m interested if Brooke has an inspiration for this. Oh yeah. That’s what Im asking Lana. I’m curious!

Brooke Blaine : You know what? I blossomed after high school, so when my crushes saw me years later, they were ALL ABOUT IT. That denied stamp felt good. A bit. I had an awkward high school experience. I was a theater kid and everyone thought I was shy and quiet…”the nice girl.” I went to church a lot.

Lana : From what I recall she didn’t come into her own skin till after high school.

Shy AND quiet? Boy did they get that one wrong, huh?

Brooke Blaine : And, like I said, I didn’t come into my own until college. So like Ryleigh in that way
Dude you’re not kidding, I guess I was kind of that way. I don’t know what happened. Someone must’ve scandalized me.

Geri : I went through this phase too Brooke so I can relate.

Alleskelle : I was part of the quiet solitary ones too. Well I mostly used to hang out with the guys.

Lana: I was the same way. Would you believe I was the quiet girl that everyone thought was a bitch because I rarely talked
then senior year happened and BAM !

Alleskelle : It’s kind of the best reward. Just like what happens to Ryleigh in Licked. Never part of the “cool” kids, (but truly she was) and being brushed off by the guys at school, only to rub it in their faces later.

Brooke Blaine: Hell yes, Alex!
No way, people thought Lana was a bitch? Shocking. Utterly shocking. 😉
Geri, would you say you’re a 180 now of who you were back then?

Geri : Not really. I’d say I was already who I am but I wasn’t as comfortable in my skin back then. So I kept my mouth shut. Didn’t rock the boat much. But in my head…oh boy!

Alleskelle: It is TRUE what they say about the quiet girls. Or at least they are as freaks as the slutty ones lol

Brooke Blaine : ^^NO ONE would guess I write erotica sometimes. I kind of wish I could blast out that info. Maybe I will
Do you guys still find that if you see people from high school that the awkward girl from then comes back?

Lana : Not really. I became an opinionated smart ass. I dunno how to shut that off! LMAO

Alleskelle : Why would you want to shut it off? And yes, the awkward still comes through depending who I’m talking to.

Brooke Blaine : Yeah, don’t shut that off or you can’t sit with us.

Geri: On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Brooke Blaine : LOL! Geri, I’ve seen what you read, so that sounds about right 😉

Geri : Sometimes. Right? hahaha

Lana : And I was always a closet perv… le sigh

Alleskelle : *closet* LMAO!

Geri : No secret there

Brooke Blaine : Your husband must be a happy man, Lana

Lana : He’s worse than me, Brooke…so I dunno. We try to outsmart ass each other, keeps it lively.

tumblr_nynu1gjmcF1s9b724o3_500Lana : Now back to business, let’s talk about your upcoming book, because….HOOKER! DUDE. Can I just say I LOVE that title?

Brooke Blaine : Hell yes! You like the name, no?

Lana : Fitting. I was all, she wrote a book about ME?! LMAO

Geri : We all do!

Alleskelle : The name is PERFECT! Verra fitting

Brooke Blaine : Well, I’ve called my friends that for years, so…
It totally fits. Plus she’s a matchmaker, not a LITERAL hooker, so… there’s that

Geri : Shut it! I love matchmaker stories! It’s my catnip. Well one of…

Brooke Blaine: Oooh maybe Geri will read this one… Someone tie her down and make her

Geri : I already promised these hookers I will read Licked. Or else

Lana : She HAS to read the first one It sets up the second one

Brooke Blaine : So Hooker is a standalone, which means you don’t HAVE to read Licked, but YOU FUCKING SHOULD…

Lana : Totally fucking should

Alleskelle : You definitely should! Hunter was really dreamy. Sexy. Rough… and gah, just read it already!

Brooke Blaine : mmmm I love Hunter…
And it centers on the Aussie transplant in the bunch, the fabulous Shayne Callahan
Whose boss is a psycho from hell. She’s fabulous to write. I kind of want a Val book honestly

She’s so much fun to write. It’s like I can turn off my filter completely and just say the most horrible stuff. It’s fantastic.

Lana : I loved Shayne!

Brooke Blaine : But I’m loving Shayne’s guy now too… You like guys in suspenders, right?

Alleskelle : Only in suspenders?

Geri : Hahahaha! You read my mind Alex! ( I’m going to Amazon, talk amongst yourselves, kids)

Brooke Blaine : Well they have to attach to SOMETHING

Alleskelle : …to socks? ^^

tumblr_lz02m1KZTs1qa9vqgo2_250Alleskelle : I had wished we’ll get more Quinn first but… Shayne will do. lol

Lana : Quinn is the mysterious Ukrainian

Brooke Blaine : Omg you’re on the Quinn train too? You sound like Lana

Alleskelle : I LOVED Quinn. Huge girl crush. And Lana is only projecting because she’s east european too.

Lana : I bet that Hooker is a spy or something

Brooke Blaine : Quinn is coming last out of the foursome because YOU ALL WANT IT AND I’M AN ASSHOLE. You’re welcome.

Lana : You whore! Teasing whore! I knew you’d do that!

Brooke Blaine : Geri went quiet, I think she really did go to Amazon. #peerpressurerocks

Alleskelle : Ok, no Quinn. Who wants that hooker anyway? (I’m trying the reverse psychology method here)

Geri : Ha! Too late Alex

Brooke Blaine : You know what…it’s Ella Frank’s fault.

Lana : WHAT?!!!

Alleskelle : Why? What did she do?

Brooke Blaine : She told me to make the person everyone wanted be last. And I thought it would be Paige that people wanted.
But nope. You guys said Quinn. So I switched it

Alleskelle : Nooooo! I hate Ella Frank all of sudden. Authors are really EVIL

Brooke Blaine : MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA <—evil laugh

Lana: I totally want Paige. I lied! Lied I tells ya! (is it working?)

Alleskelle : (I think not)

Brooke Blaine : Well, I can’t really make you cry with these books, so I have to do SOMETHING to piss you off

Lana: bah. Well back to Hooker, tell us more ! like….is there a meet cute? There has to be a meet cute?

Brooke Blaine : Hmm what can I say… oh i LOVE LOVE LOVE their meet cute

Lana : Is anyone going to be naked during that? (Cause they totally should)

Brooke Blaine : more than Ryleigh and Hunter’s maybe… And um… yes, there is a degree of nakedness.

Lana : How large a degree? : On a scale from one to peen? I like these naked meeting ‘nice to peen you’

Geri : On a scale of one to Tom Hardy, how naked?

Alleskelle : Another naked meeting? Like it’s going to be a regular occurrence for them all? (Please say yes.)

Brooke Blaine : bahahaaa! wait is that implying Tom Hardy is always naked?
I promise not all meet cutes will be naked ones.

Geri : Did you guys see that? Woman, did you not see his latest video?

Lana : There’s Tom Hardy peen? Your hooker ass has been holding out on me!

Alleskelle : Lana wake the fuck up. There IS. It’s all over my FB feed.
I saw the blurry version, Geri. Now, do YOU have a link to the REAL thing? Because that would prove your innocent bullshiting.

Brooke Blaine : Wait, what? Why are you holding out on us??

Geri : LMAO! I plead the fifth

Alleskelle : You should just plead guilty, you perv! She hides behind that sweet librarian look. But we know better.

Brooke Blaine : Okay, Geri is the tease in the group, that much is blatantly obvious. The glasses don’t fool us.

If I google Tom Hardy’s cock, and I get a virus on my computer and it destroys my Hooker manuscript…well, you guys will help me hide Geri’s body, right?

tumblr_nxx3ajC7Ii1s9b724o8_500Lana : What’s a hooker for? Of course! But clearly we got distracted again
What else can you tell us about her love interest? I’m desperate here!

Brooke Blaine : Oh, sorry sorry! Okay, here’s another bit for you: Shayne *may* be rockin’ the cradle in this book
slightly 😉 You don’t mind younger guys, right?

Alleskelle : How much younger? How old is Shayne again?

Brooke Blaine : Not much. Within five years-ish. She’s 28? 29? 28? Shit, don’t ask me hard questions

I don’t mind the age gap. Even if it’s reversed. Like older woman, younger guy

Alleskelle : Meh, that’s nothing

Geri : It’s a math question too. Don’t scare off our guest

Lana : 5 years I can handle. Anything over 15 makes me a tad uncomfortable tho. Don’t ask me why

Alleskelle : Lana the more and more you talk, the more I discover even YOU have hard limits. I is shocked.
So he is 22-ish and he wears suspenders.

Brooke Blaine : Yeah, he has to be above the drinking limit. I couldn’t handle it if he couldn’t go to a bar.

Geri : Yes. What would they do?

Brooke Blaine : Exactly, Geri. What do you do with someone under twenty-one? Go play miniature golf or something?

Geri : So not J-Lo’s Casper Smart level, Right?

Brooke Blaine : Okay stop it. Casper is so not cute. Wtf is going on there. That was my favorite movie growing up. I even had Casper soap.

Lana : How did we get on the subject of Casper here?

Geri : Because that’s how I scale now. Like from 1 to Jlo-Casper Smart

Alleskelle : I think Geri was talking about J-Lo’s boyfriend or something

Brooke Blaine : Well, I turned it to the ghost because he’s way more adorable than Casper Smart
if that’s really his name

Lana : I was thinking of the friendly ghost variety. Clearly I’m not on the up and up with celebrity gossip

Brooke Blaine : Lana – celebrity gossip plays a huge part in Hooker. And that’s all I can tell you about that.


Alleskelle : What else? Come on, spill!

Brooke Blaine : Dimples.

Alleskelle: Tell me he has at least a mild kink. Like nice guy but freak in the bedroom. *Dreamy eyes*

Brooke Blaine : I can’t give you all my secrets, woman!!

Alleskelle : Ooooh, did I put my finger on it??? He’s a freak! Yes!
So her man is a celebrity?

22-ish celebrity wearing suspenders with a bedroom kink

*with dimples

Brooke Blaine : Nope, I didn’t say that

Alleskelle: (I’m drawing my own conclusions) lol
Brooke Blaine : bahahaha! I’ll let you believe what you want 😉 Don’t you love surprises?

Alleskelle : I do love surprises but I’m such a greedy Hooker…

Brooke Blaine: greedy two-dollar hooker shake! I like that one… ~writes it down~

tumblr_m1vduqd0DC1qfntolo1_500Geri : So Hooker will be the second book. Will it then be a four book series?

Brooke Blaine : Yep, there are four fabulously foul-mouthed bff’s and each will get a turn

Geri : I’m imagining Henry Cavill in suspenders

Brooke Blaine : The Henry Cavill lookalike is in my next book 😉

Lana : WHAT?!!!!!!! *dies*

Alleskelle : Shhhhut up!

Geri : Ooohhh!

Alleskelle : Can we have the next one before this one?

Geri : This is bargaining at its finest LOL!

Brooke Blaine : You know what…I was going back and forth about that . I’m hoping to have it out pretty soon after Hooker. With the most GORGEOUS FUCKING MODEL ON THE PLANET on the front. But it’ll be a standalone. if I’m feeling fun and flirty, romantic comedy comes out.

Alleskelle : Now this cover I have to see

Geri : I love rom-coms. They’re my crack. Jennifer Crusie started me on it.

Brooke Blaine : I’m just leaving you breadcrumbs so you keep coming for more

Alleskelle : You’re such a tease

Lana : I gotta admit, I loved your Romantic Suspense too. Reading with a visual of Jason Statham is nothing to complain about

Brooke Blaine : Thank you! You know, I would love to go back and visit Kirkpatrick from Flash Point one of these days, but it only makes sense if there’s a demand for it. But suspense was a lot of fun.

Alleskelle: Jason Statham does nothing for me…

Geri : Same.

Lana : Who ARE YOU?! Leave right now. Get out! Both of you!

Brooke Blaine : Whaaaat. Not even when he’s kicking like twelve guys asses at the same time?

Lana : Want to lick that man, neck to cock. Swear to God

Alleskelle : He looks like an old man already

Lana : No. (la la la la) I can’t hear you

Brooke Blaine : omg. I have to leave this conversation before I cut a bitch. and I’m tall enough to step on you guys, so…

Lana : Right? I’ll hold them down for you, Brooke. Crazy Whores! I may be small, but I’m scrappy. Watch yourself!

Brooke Blaine : Thank you, Lana. Teamwork

Alleskelle : LMAO, pussy you’ll hide behind her that’s what you meant. Geri you stick by me, we’ll stand proud

Geri : Two on two! Hahahaha! I’m dying

Alleskelle : Are we really fighting over Jason fucking Statham?

Geri : LOL! Looks like

Lana : Do NOT insult my husband, you whore!

Alleskelle : Would you rather I say he is mine? Brooke we’re usually fighting over who keeps whom

Brooke Blaine : It’s not about Jason Statham! Okay it is

Lana : It totally is

Brooke Blaine : This is kind of a deal-breaker. The Hooker Line is about to split apart before it even gets started omg

fJNyKQsLana : We digressed….again. Can we get back to business here?

Brooke Blaine : Sorry sorry, it’s Alex’s fault I think. I’m just gonna point fingers over here

Lana : It’s always Alex’s fault

Geri : *glares at Alex

Alleskelle : How is it it’s always the French ‘s fault? Way to turn up your vest Geri. You were on my side 2 seconds ago.

Lana : *add a stink eye to the glare* judging youuuuu

Alleskelle : Geri said she didn’t like your bald man too. Right Geri? I’m just saying.

Lana : You shut your whore mouth, dammit! We’re detouring again! quit that! This is going to be the longest interview ever…
*claps hands* children, children, concentrate !

Brooke Blaine : ohhhh we’re in trouble. She might spank us

Alleskelle : Yes, Mistress Lana. (I think she’s giving me some Domme vibes)

Brooke Blaine : She does seem the type, doesn’t she?

Lana : I will and you will not enjoy it. I’ll dole out the punishment Russian style!

Geri : Okay. Let me just say that I love that your covers have the heroines or the representation of the heroine on them
Usually, it’s always the hero but yours, it stands out. As much as I love the nekkid, seeing a woman in a cover is refreshing and a very welcome change.

Brooke Blaine : I like covers that when you look at them, you can tell what’s on the inside. I love seeing women on covers. I hate that it all has to be naked guy naked guy

Alleskelle : Too much naked guys

Lana : And I hate when the cover model doesn’t match the actual character. pet peeve

Alleskelle : So, we have Shayne’s story coming up March 9th, and then Paige’s story? And Quinn’s last?

Brooke Blaine : Yep, Shayne is up next, then I’ll pop out a standalone, and then it’s Paige’s turn. And omg…hers I can’t WAIT to write. I’m dying.
-I HATE THAT TOO LANA, when it doesn’t match the character inside

Geri : What’s you favorite part about writing this series?

Brooke Blaine : Geri, Omg the girls. I fucking love the girls. So much of them is taken from all the friends I’ve made over the years, and I just love writing them so much.

Alleskelle : I love the banter you have on between the girls in Licked. And the heroine? I swear it was like hearing Lana talking to me! It was really strange

Brooke Blaine : Ahaha I love that you can relate!

Geri : I love books that showcases women relationships

Brooke Blaine : That’s really the heart of the story. Friendships are so important, to me more so than the romance. Honestly, I could write about them without the men and be so happy with it. That’s not done enough, celebrating women

Alleskelle : Hookers first !

Brooke Blaine : holding each other up instead of tearing each other down. Did you guys fall asleep? Do i need to tell a dick joke?

Geri : It’s great to show that especially in romance where there’s this divide between the heroine and the supposed girls who wants to steal her man. I hate that in books now more than ever

Lana : Dick joke? *perks up ears*

Alleskelle : Lol, I’m always up for dick

Brooke Blaine : LOL

Lana: But about the women, it’s so true. You don’t read enough about this. It’s always back stabbing and jealousy. You don’t get true genuine friendships, or it’s VERY rare. So it’s super refreshing

Brooke Blaine : Well, it’s just catty. I want these books to feel like coming back home in a sense. Like the girls are your family

Lana : it totally has that vibe

Geri : I’m a sucker for books like that


Alleskelle : Can you tell us more about your standalone?

Brooke Blaine : What I’ll tell you is that I’m digging a bit deeper for this next one. I love romcom and I loved the suspense, but I sort of back off from being too vulnerable in my books. I’m that way in real life too, and I just feel that need to sort of let things out. Does that make sense? Keep you salivating and all that 😉

Alleskelle : You have me curious now. Stalking mode activated. Might even set up a folder for you on the computer. muahaha

Brooke Blaine : – Oooh I get my own folder? That’s hot… Should I send nekkid pics? Or not that kind of stalking…

tumblr_leqkn9xRcN1qegjjvLana : So what would we like to close with? Before this spans into another hour. LOL

Brooke Blaine : LOL! Thanks for having me, Hookers. Mouthy bitches, but i dig it 😉

Alleskelle : I think we were relatively sweet today. I for one, behaved. (not directing this at anyone in particular)

Brooke Blaine : Why, are you sick? Feeling shy?

Geri : Your nose Alex

Alleskelle : My nose is perfectly sized today Geri, thank you

Lana : What would you like to close with, Brooke? A pervy joke? A little fun fact A little fun pervy fact?

Geri : A knock knock pervy joke

Alleskelle : I really feel you out -Hookered us, we have a lot to learn still. Baby Hookers here.

Brooke Blaine : Aww, that’s a pretty high compliment.
Omg that’s so putting me on the spot. I’m so bad with jokes. Um hmmm
MEME HERE (or break line, whatever you want.)

Lana : Pervy fact about the hero then? pweeease?

Brooke Blaine : Why you gotta make him pervy. Poor guy, he’s getting a complex!

Alleskelle : Because I sense he’s going to be a perv

Brooke Blaine : you’ll see those suspenders back in action I’ll say 😉 But he won’t be wearing them

Alleskelle : Ah, now you’re talking! I knew he would be kinky! Bondage!!!

Geri : Hey, suspenders can be used as cuffs

Lana : *mind spins off into dark places* LOL

Geri : So he’s basically a McGyver in the bedroom then?

Brooke Blaine : Now you’re off to Pinterest hot suspenders guys with Dimples. oh wait, I could show you one. Well this is Nate…real life name, also Nate


Lana: OMG I love him. He’s on my Pinterest. He’s yummy

Brooke Blaine : Lana I think every hot guy in the world is on your Pinterst. I can never spell that word
Can you do mine? Just send hot guys my way and put ’em on the Nate board. k thanks

Alleskelle : Lana has hidden boards. You haven’t seen nothing yet

Lana : Heeee. I’m a Pinterest peen ninja

Brooke Blaine : ooohhhhh let’s talk about THAT next time… Thank you hookers so much for having me!

Alleskelle : Thank you, Master Hooker! (High praise, usually Lana is the Master Hooker)

Brooke Blaine : Oooh, Master Hooker! Love it. Do u guys bow down on your knees?

Alleskelle: lol! depends on the occasion, Brooke

Brooke Blaine : 😉 Well, thank you! Air kisses and all that

Geri : http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/6914125/Tom-Hardy-strips-naked-for-new-role.html

Alleskelle : Love how you finish the convo with dick pics Geri. In style. Classy

Lana : only way we know how. Tom Hardy peen FTW

Geri : Here’s Tom HARD-y. See what i did there?

Brooke Blaine : Always a good convo when it ends with cock!

Want more? Of course you do, you greedy dirty birds! Read on for an exclusive Hooker excerpt!

About The Book


Whoever said singles were missing out by not finding true love and getting married before the age of thirty had never experienced the sheer pleasure of nightly romantic comedy viewings in their underwear while eating one of Licked’s famous Crazy Cat Lady sundaes. Because life just doesn’t get better than that.

At least, it doesn’t for Shayne Callahan. It didn’t take more than a handful of broken hearts after college to solidify that she was better at pairing up those around her than herself. As a matchmaker at the elite HLS—Hook, Line, & Sinker Matchmaking Company—in the City of Angels, she has a knack for finding the other halves of even the most eccentric clients:

Sugar daddy with a foot fetish? Gross, but no problem.
A severe case of nudophobia? Match made before lunch.

But even the most happily independent of women can find their best-laid plans screeching to a halt when they meet that guy. For Shayne, that guy comes in the form of boyishly handsome, suspender-lovin’, dimple-poppin’ Nate Ryan on a pantsless (we’ll get to that later) Metro ride.

Of course, relationships can never be easy. Before the destined lovers can ride off into the sunset, they must overcome a power-hungry and sexual-punning boss, a celebrity scandal and cover-up, and let’s not forget Shayne’s dreadful foot-in-mouth disease—with which there can never be a happily ever after.

Will fate throw Shayne a freakin’ bone? Or will she be destined to live out her life as sexy(ish), single(ish), and L.A.’s finest Hooker (upper)?


Exclusive Excerpt for The Hooker Line
Hooker by Brooke Blaine © 2016LIKE A GOOD bodyguard, Nate hadn’t left my side all night when we’d entered the club. Not when I went to the bar. Not when I’d headed to the bathroom to touch up my lipstick—though he was waiting just outside the door.The butterflies that had started when I’d first noticed him earlier that evening hadn’t dissipated either—they’d gotten worse. That hadn’t happened with someone in so long that the sensation was unfamiliar, though not necessarily unwelcome.With a final look in the mirror, I fluffed my hair out around my shoulders, grabbed my drink, and walked out of the bathroom. Nate was leaning against the opposite wall, arms crossed and his sleeves pushed up his forearms. His gaze traveled down the length of my body.“Did I mention how much I’m enjoying the fact that you forgot your pants again tonight? If I hadn’t seen those sexy pajamas, I’d be a little concerned you didn’t own any.”“As if you would mind that.”“I think you like me looking at you.”I mimicked his pose as I leaned against the wall. “Well, I can’t stop you.”

“No, you can’t.” He cocked his head to the side. “Do you know what I love more than anything?”

“Stalking potential dates in the grocery aisle?”

“Gorgeous women who pretend they’re not interested.”

I rolled my eyes and pushed off the wall. “I’m not pretend—”

“You like the challenge,” he said, stepping in front of me, his eyes flicking to my mouth. “And believe me, so do I.”


“Stubborn and in denial. I can work with that.” He took the glass from my hand and tipped the liquid into his mouth.

“Let me guess. Girly drinks are your favorite too.”

“Nah, just wanted to get a taste of what’s going into that delicious mouth of yours.”

“Jesus.” I shook my head. “You don’t stop, do you?”

His dimple deepened. “You like that too.”

I tried to keep my lips from twitching into a smile, really I did. He was so damn frustrating. But persistent. And persuasive. And so fucking sexy it was hard to remember why I was trying not to show my interest.

My mind blanked. Why is that again…

His stupid smile was winning me over, though. I had to try harder. And maybe not look at him.

★DGR’s Ultimate List of Second-Chance Romance★

DGR-Ultimate list of second-chance romance

Let’s talk second chance love and all the reasons why this particular read loves it…

Angst? Check! a grovel oftentimes being one of the best I’ll read? Double check!

There’s plenty of reasons I love this particular trope, but not all second chance romances are cut from the same cloth. Some are swoony, some are rip your hair out angsty. Luckily, I’ve been able to compile (what I think) is a balanced combination of both! As always, the books on this list are those that I have personally read and loved. If there are any favorites that you see missing, please drop me a rec in comments! I love to hear from you guys and you know I love me my book recs <3

If you’re new to my blog, this a monthly feature I do on the last Saturday of each month! Check out the previous features here:






But now, without further ado, let’s get to my list. These are in no particular order…

WILD CARD by Lora Leigh



It was supposed to be simple. All Navy SEAL Nathan Malone had to do was rescue three young girls from a Colombia drug cartel, then allow himself to be captured just long enough to draw out a government spy. That was before his mission went disastrously wrong…and before his wife, Bella, was told that Nathan was never coming home.

Bella’s mourned her husband’s death for three long years. But she has no idea he’s still alive. Forced to assume a new identity, the man Nathan was is now dead. If he can get back to his wife, can he keep the secret of who he really is…even as desire threatens to consume them? And as danger threatens to tear Bella from Nathan’s arms once more?

What kind of list would it be without my very first erotic romance book? It also just so happens that it had the delicious second chance love romance in the shape of husband coming back form the land of the dead to woo his wife back while pretending to be another man. Is your head spinning yet? Don’t worry, it’s not as complex as I make it sound. But if you like uber alphas and super hot sex with dirty talk galore all wrapped around a second chance romance I’m not sure why you haven’t read this book yet!




“Love doesn’t let you walk away clean. Love is messy. Love takes a fucking piece of you before it’s done.”

Sweet mother of angst! I have no freaking idea how I survived this trilogy with even half my sanity intact…. or did I? *babbles incoherently*

But seriously though, it’s not often that a trilogy manages to suck me in as much as this one had. My book ADD typically kicks in right around book two with a major case of feeling-like-book-filleritis. But something about this one just worked for me. The angst, the hate, the lies, all of it built up into this amazing conclusion of one hell of a second chance romance! If you haven’t met Tristan and Danika yet, you’re in for one hell of a ride!

A HUSBAND’S REGRET by Natasha Anders



Revenge, they said was a dish best served cold. He’d been waiting for two years. And how much sweeter the payback would be no that he had her very firmly within his grasp. 

OK, so this is not your typical second chance romance because the hero isn’t exactly groveling back right away. Let’s just say there are some assumptions and he wants revenge on his wife that he kicked out two years ago. But when he finally understands the enormity of his mistake? Second chance grovel goodness!



BELONG TO ME by Shayla Black



She’d never required someone for her next breath the way she did Logan in that moment. God, she’d been hoping to bring them both closure, but now he felt like a part of her… so necessary to her existence.

Uber and super possessive alphas, BDSM, and a hot lot of smexy? This series has it. Belong To Me was probably my favorite in the series and two words why: Second. Chance.

The main couple were high school sweethearts that were torn apart by a dangerous secret, to be reunited as adults. Yumminess ensues.






“No, Hunt, it’s simple. If right now is all we have, if this is all we get, then I’ll grab it with both hands and take all I can.”

Firstly, if you haven’t met Marc “Hunt” Hunter, you haven’t lived. No really. Trust me on that.

Sophie and Hunt were childhood sweethearts. She was the good girl, he was the elusive bad boy. Now he’s the elusive escaped convicted murderer that’s taken her hostage. Sound delicious? Because it totally is!


NO CHANCE by Christy Reece



“Sometimes she wondered if those who felt too deeply were the ones who, when hurt, shut down their emotions even tighter than others.”

If you’re a fan of steamy romantic suspense, you need to read Christy’s Last Chance Rescue series. No Chance is book 4 in the series, but it’s easily read as a standalone. I highly recommend reading the entire series because I loved it!

Here’s the book blurb to entice you further:


Skylar James told a lie to the man she married, and eight years later she still bitterly regrets the deception. Unknown to Skylar, her husband, Gabe Maddox, now lives in the dangerous shadows of elite operatives who rescue victims. When Skylar tries to save a naïve young beauty, kidnappers come after her. For Gabe, Skylar had been his last shot at trust and love. But news of her disappearance battens down his anger and launches him into action. Saving Skylar is Gabe’s only chance for peace and his last chance for happiness.




“She laid her head against his collarbone, and he kissed her temple. To her shock, she felt a shudder roll through his body about the same time she registered wetness against her skin. Tears. His tears.
She started to turn around, but he tightened his grip.
“Stay,” he said in a choked voice. “Just let me hold you, baby. Just let me hold you.”

A wife he believed is dead for a year is very much alive and ex-Navy SEAL Ethan Kelly will stop at nothing to get her back. But when he does, the battle for her heart and memories might be even harder than the battle to rescue her! What a swoony read this was. Don’t expect Maya’s typical erotic romance with this, because this was more mild on that scale. But boy the feels of it all!

NOW AND THEN by Mira Lyn Kelly



There was something primal about the way he felt with her. It was unreasonable. Irrational. And he didn’t fucking care, because that feeling was so good, the only thing that mattered was making sure he got more.

Does the title not give it away? Because it totally should! If you haven’t read the fun and steamy Dare to Love series by Mira Lyn Kelly, then get yourself some. The book before this one was a great friends-to-lovers! And each book is easily read as a standalone.



There’s one author that’s given me plenty of favorite second chance romances and that’s Kristen Ashley. I should really just dedicate a list just for her…


GOLDEN TRAIL by Kristen Ashley



Tanner Layne and Raquel Merrick fell in love young, hard and fast and both of them knew a beautiful life they thought would be forever.

Until Rocky left Layne, no explanation, no going back.

Layne escapes The ‘Burg only to come back years later because his ex-wife has hooked herself to the town jerk and Layne needs to make sure his sons get raised right. Layne manages to avoid Rocky but when Layne gets three bullets drilled into him while investigating a dirty cop, he can’t do that because Rocky stops avoiding Layne.

And to do it, Layne has to enlist everyone, including his ex-CIA mentor, Rocky’s detective brother, the town’s unpredictable informant and Layne’s two teenage sons all the while stopping Rocky from doing something crazy and keeping their game secret so Layne won’t get himself dead.

PLAY IT SAFE by Kristen Ashley



No connections. Play it safe. These were the rules Ivey lived her life by.

Until she hit Mustang, Colorado, a perfectly imperfect town where the citizens were welcoming and one of them included the tall, beautiful, macho man rancher cowboy, Grayson Cody.

On the run for a decade, Ivey knew she was supposed to play it safe. But she was tired of being on the run. She wanted a normal. She wanted real. She wanted a home.

And she wanted Grayson Cody.

And Grayson Cody wanted Ivey.

No one who looked at them couldn’t see they belonged together. There was one man in this world for Ivey and one woman in this world for Grayson Cody.

So they fell in love.

But just as quickly as they fell together, they were betrayed and torn apart. Separated for years, Ivey was certain her life would not include her rancher cowboy. Until the town of Mustang reached out to her when Gray was in trouble. Even though she thought he broke her heart, she charged in to help. Then Gray and Ivey discovered they were betrayed and, not only that, Gray had an enemy who would stop at nothing to defeat him.

CREED by Kristen Ashley



Way too young, eleven year old Tucker Creed and his six year old neighbor, Sylvie Bissenette, find they have something awful in common. Creed then decides he’s going to do everything in his limited power to shield his Sylvie from her ordeal. So he does and Creed and Sylvie form a bond that grows and blossoms with their ages.

They plot to leave their lives behind, the town they live in that will hold them down and the histories they share that, unless they break free, will bury them. Sylvie goes to their special place, Creed never shows and she doesn’t see him again until it’s too late.

With Creed gone, Sylvie is forced to endure a nightmare and do the unspeakable to end it. To deal, she develops a hard shell with sharp edges that very few can break through. So when Creed again finds his Sylvie, he discovers the girl he loved is locked away and he has to find his way back into her heart without getting shredded in the process.




Stella’s the lead singer and lead guitarist of The Blue Moon Gypsies and Stella used to be Mace’s girl. Mace broke up with her, though, and the loss of him rocked her world. But Stella gets a call, late at night (again) from one of the members of her crazy band. She has to go play clean up (again) and runs into Mace and a shed load of police, and ends up getting shot.

Mace finds he doesn’t like it much that his ex-girlfriend got shot right in front of him but it’s worse. A very bad man has thrown down the gauntlet and all the Rock Chicks are in the firing line. Stella doesn’t want Mace to be the one to keep her alive, but she has no choice. Mainly because Mace isn’t giving her one.


WALK THROUGH FIRE by Kristen Ashley (and holy ugly cry, batman!)



The flame never dies . . .

Millie Cross knows what it’s like to burn for someone. She was young and wild and he was fierce and even wilder-a Chaos biker who made her heart pound. They fell in love at first sight and life was good, until she learned she couldn’t be the woman he needed and made it so he had no choice but to walk away. Twenty years later, Millie’s chance run-in with her old flame sparks a desire she just can’t ignore. And this time, she won’t let him ride off . . .

Bad boy Logan “High” Judd has seen his share of troubles with the law. Yet it was a beautiful woman who broke him. After ending a loveless marriage, High is shocked when his true love walks back into his life. Millie is still gorgeous, but she’s just a ghost of her former self. High’s intrigued at the change, but her betrayal cut him deep-and he doesn’t want to get burned again. As High sinks into meting out vengeance for Millie’s betrayal, he’ll break all over again when he realizes just how Millie walked through fire for her man…

And now back to regularly scheduled programming with the rest of my list!




Nine years on, and nothing had changed. Beck Rivera was still the boy who heated her from the inside out….

Don’t let the slightly cheesy cover fool you, this book is super steamy and super fun! If you follow my reviews, you already know my love for this author. If you’re looking for a taste before you jump into her entire backlist, this novella is the way to go 😉

Did I mention the hero is a smokin’ hot fire fighter? No pun intended. Ha! Who am I kidding? It totally was



FIGHTING TO BREATHE by Aurora Rose Reynolds



I wanted her fifteen years ago, and I still fucking want her now. There isn’t a single part of me that doesn’t know she’s my future…

Aurora Rose Reynolds is a total guilty pleasure read for me. Her uber OTT alphas and swoony and sexy romances seem to hit the spot for me every time. They’re nothing crazy and the stories aren’t exactly something I haven’t read before…and yet? They seem to do it for me every time.



UNTIL LILLY by Aurora Rose Reynolds



“I’m going to make you fall in love with me again.”

This has to be one of my favorite books by this author to date. While it’s book 3 in her Until series, it’s also easily read as a standalone. Nothing like those Mayson brothers and their Boom. If you want a good dose of sexy alpha, this is a go-to.





ONE MORE SHOT by Victoria Denault



Hockey was the only thing in my life that made me feel right. It used to be hockey and Jessie, but then I lost Jessie. It had been hockey and only hockey ever since.

Hot hockey player? Check! Friends to lovers turned second chance romance? Check! Angst? Check and double freaking check!





FISHER’S LIGHT by Tara Sivec




I’m going to fix this. I have to fix this… I hate every moment that I’m away from her, but I will do whatever it takes to find the man she once loved and bring him back to her.

Oh the swoons! Oh the feels! Oh mylanta! Gawd but this book packed a hell of punch…straight to the mother effin feels! I adored every single wonderful page of it. The hero is suffering from crippling PTSD and the crumbling of his marriage to his beloved wife. Now he wants to fight like hell to get his woman back and he’ll stop at nothing for that second chance.

How about some rockstar second chance romances now? You can never go wrong with rockstars!

FOREVER MY GIRL by Heidi McLaughlin



I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after.

I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I’ve poured my soul into my music, but I’ve never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile.

And now I’m going back.

After ten years.

I hope I can explain that after all this time.

I still want her to be my forever girl.

ROCK HARD by Olivia Cunning



An ultimatum can break your heart…

Every night lead singer, Sed Lionheart whips thousands of women into a frenzy with his voice alone. But the stage is the only place Sed feels any passion since he lost Jessica…

If you’re not willing to break all the rules…

It shattered her heart, but law student Jessica broke off her engagement to Sed, determined to be successful on her own terms. But no other man can ever hold a candle to Sed…

Then a chance meeting and tortuously close quarters lead to uncontrollable flares of passion and rediscovery of their unique penchant for public encounters. Now, in addition to the risk of mutual heartbreak every time they get together, they’re in danger of truly scandalous public exposure…

TORN FROM YOU by Nashoda Rose



Love is like an avalanche. It hits hard, fast and without mercy.

At least it did for me when Sculpt, the lead singer of the rock band Tear Asunder knocked me off my feet. Literally, because he’s also a fighter, illegally of course, and he taught me how to fight. He also taught me how to love and I fell hard for him. I mean the guy could do sweet, when he wasn’t doing bossy, and I like sweet.

Then it all shattered.

I was alone and fighting to survive.
When I heard Sculpt’s voice, I thought he was there to save me.

I was wrong.

And now back to regularly standard programming with the rest of my list…




*Sequel to the USA Today Bestseller ONE WEEK GIRLFRIEND*

New Adult Contemporary

Lost. That one single word best describes my life at this very moment. I lost the last games of the season and both my team and my coach blame me. I lost the last two months because I drowned in my own despair like a complete loser. And I lost the only girl who ever mattered because I was afraid being with me would destroy her.

But now I realize how truly lost I am without her. She has become my story…and even though she acts like she’s moved on, I know she still thinks about me just as much as I think about her. She’s beautiful, sweet–and so damn vulnerable, all I want to do is help her. Be there for her.

Love her…

If only I could convince Fable to give me a second chance. Then I wouldn’t feel so lost anymore, and neither would she. We could be found together.


AXEL by Harper Sloan



Fate hasn’t always been friends with Isabelle West. In fact, fate has been a downright bitch.

Isabelle has learned the hard way how hard life can be when fate isn’t by your side. It can hand you dreams on silver platters, but it can snatch them right back and hand you nightmares. One thing Isabelle knew for sure fate was consistent with was taking away everything she ever loved.

For the last two years Isabelle has been slowly clearing the clouds of her past. Happiness is finally on the horizon. She has a thriving business, great friends, and her life back. All she has to do is jump over the last hurdle…her ex-husband.

When problems start causing her to fear her new life, and memories that are better left forgotten start rushing to the surface the last thing she needs is a ghost from her past to come knocking on her door.

Axel never thought he would look into the eyes of Isabelle West again, and he wasn’t sure he wanted to now. He’s carried his anger for so long he isn’t sure he can just turn it off, but when he is faced with protecting her and an unexpected desire to have her again, life gets a little more complicated.

How will Axel and Isabelle deal when all their cards are put on the table and everything they thought was true blows up in their faces?




“Caro… I don’t understand – why do you love me?”
“Just because… because the sky is blue and the sea is green.”

One of the most memorable and emotional second chance romances I’ve read, and it’s not available in one single edition for only $3.99. This is a duet that begins with The Education of Sebastian. The heroine is older, and trapped in a loveless marriage. The hero is just 17 at the time. Their love story truly takes off in the second book which takes place ten years later. This was the book that first made me fall in love with this incredibly talented author.



NO REVERSE and FAST FORWARD by Marion Croslydon



Cassie used to make me feel. She also used to keep me from thinking straight. Some things didn’t change. 

This is a duet about love, second chances and forgiveness. It’s more emotional than steamy with a healthy amount of angst thrown in.

This was my chance- our chance- to make things right. I’d made a promise to Cass and damn it all to hell, I’d never break it. 

Book 3 in the series, You Turn, is another great second chance romance with a different character that was first introduced in the duet. I highly recommend that one as well.

ALL I WANT by J. Daniels



“It’s possible to hate someone, to look at them and wish you weren’t aware of their every move, and to want them more than you’ve ever wanted anything in your life.”

Luke *pervy sigh*

If you follow my reviews you already know I’m obsessed with all things J. Daniels and her Alabama Summer series just so happens to be one of my favorites. While Luke and Reed from When I Fall are my top 2 favorite heroes she’s written, there’s just something about Luke that makes him my number one. Maybe it’s the addition of hate/lust in this book in addition to the second chance romance? Whatever the reason is, this book and this series are an absolute must read!




Every story had an innocent beginning, even theirs, and Tabitha found herself wishing she had a chance to go back and relive it one more time, because she didn’t want to let go any more than Wyatt did.

Speaking of authors I’m obsessed with, Kele Moon is at the tippy top of that particular list. I stalk the loving hell out of the poor woman and she still puts up with me. She’s a saint on top of an incredibly talented author, clearly. But I digress…

Crossing The Line is book 3 in her Battered Hearts series, and while you technically could enjoy it as a standalone, I highly recommend reading this amazing series in order…and quickly following that up with her Untamed Hearts series (anti-heroes FTW). CTL was an incredibly emotional and erotic second chance story and to this day continues to be one of my all time favorites.

LOVE AND LET DIE by Lexi Blake



He was going to kill her. He was going to wrap his hands around her pretty throat and squeeze. Except the minute he had the vision of killing his back-from-the-dead wife, she was suddenly naked and he wasn’t thinking about throttling her anymore. Maybe he could fuck her to death. That would be a better way to go.

Since we’re on the subject of series/authors I’m obsessed with, we need to talk about Lexi Blake and her Masters & Mercenaries series because OMG! I lurve this series so freaking hard, it’s not even funny. Now this is definitely a series I highly recommend reading in order because while each book is a different couple, at times there’s a plot arc that continues through several books. Love and Let Die centers on my favorite Dom and his reunion with the wife he thought was long dead and still mourning. Oh yeah. It IS as good as it sounds!

BLIND FAITH by Rebecca Zanetti



He was an experiment created in a test tube, maybe without a soul, perhaps without any hope. But for a brief time, with this woman, he’d felt whole. Real. Good. Even if they just had the night, he wanted that feeling again.

Blind Faith is book three in Rebecca’s Sin Brothers series and easily my favorite since…second chance and everything. Nate reunites with the one woman he gave his heart too that also happens to be the daughter of his mortal enemy.

Based on a band of brothers who carry unnatural powers genetically engineered into them by a black ops military unit, the series  has a little PNR twist to it, but mainly it’s pulse pounding romantic suspense. I recommend reading these books in order for maximum effect 😉

THIN LOVE by Eden Butler



“You were mine and I never loved anything more. I never wanted anything or anyone like I wanted you. Like I still want you. My always, Keira. You’re still my always.”

Sweet mother of angst! The angst! All of the angst! It hurt so good. If you want a book that will rip the heart out of your chest through your throat and then slowly put it back together, this is the book you NEED to read. Man on man but I loved it. It’s told it two parts; the first being when the H/h meet and fall in love when they’re younger and the story of what leads to the falling apart of their relationship, and the second part is their reunion. Both parts are equally amazing and if you read one book from my list, this should be at the very top!

HARDER by Robin York



“Because I love you. I don’t want to, okay? I think there are some things that are so hard, you shouldn’t have to do them, only no one can take them from you. There are feelings so sick, so obviously unhealthy, you shouldn’t have to feel them. But there they are. I still love you, and I’m not ever going to see you again, not ever. You did that to us. Not your dad or your family. just you. So I could hit you. I could rage at you right now, and call you every ugly name I know, and I know a lot. I could tell you how much I’m hurting, or I could get out of the car, slam the door, hitchhike to the airport because fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, West, how could you do this to me? How?

Speaking of angst….this book got it. In spades! Holy shit but it has it! And it’s utterly delicious. This is book two in a duet and must be read after DEEPER.

POWER PLAY by Mallery Malone



This was much more than she remembered. He was much more than she remembered.

Firstly, if you’re looking for a deliciously smutty and yet well developed series of novellas, you need to check out the entire The Billionaire’s Club.

Power Play is a a super sexy second chance romance about rich MMA playboy and the woman from his past that he never forgot.




THIS HEART OF MINE by Brenda Novak



She’d wanted him so badly seventeen years ago. And now that he wanted her, regardless of what anyone said, she wouldn’t come near him.

I can’t describe to you just how much I loved this crazy emotional romance of redemption and second chances. The heroine has spent years in prison for a crime she didn’t commit and now she’s back in town where everyone hates her and her high school sweetheart and father of her son is at the top of that list.

This book had everything; the feels and the swoons. And one of the most unforgettable stories of redemption I’ve ever read.





“Loving me destroyed you…”
“Loving you brought me back to life.”

A woman trying to move on from a man that shattered her. A man that wakes up from a coma not remembering who he was or how he ended up there. What do they have in common? A turbulent and unforgettable love. This is not the typical second chance romance but man I loved this. August, the hero, has amnesia. And the heroine is engaged to a different man now. But there’s a magnetic force that still draws them together while August struggles to regain his memory.



MY ONE AND ONLY by Kristan Higgins



“COME ON FLOREANCE !” I yelled out of the window. “CAN YOU MOVE IT?”
The driver of the car extended and arm….and a finger.
It was a male arm and a finger.

And then the car door opened,with my ex husband stepping out.

If you want sweet and funny, and I’m talking laugh out loud kind of funny, this book is a must read. Simply a must read for any contemporary romance fans.


TAKING FIRE by Cindy Gerard



And there they stood, locked in an embrace of emotions that bound them together with a common history, a common fear, and a common goal.

Romantic suspense with a sexy hero and an amazing kick-ass heroine? Oh yeah! This book definitely had it! It was also a wonderful second chance romance as well. The hero first meets the heroine on a mission overseas and they share one steamy night between the sheets…only for him to wake up the next day and realize her betrayal. Now six years later, love throws them together again with one hell of an explosion…both literally and physically!

If you haven’t read any books by this author, you’re seriously missing out. Taking Fire is book four in her One Eyed Jacks series, but also easily read as a standalone.

PAPER HEARTS HEARTS by Claire Contreras



“Some say I loved her to the point of madness, bordering on obsession. She said I put her on a pedestal that her real self couldn’t attain. Perhaps they’re all right. Perhaps I am mad. And if that’s the case, to be frank, I don’t give a damn. What I know is that she sets me on fire, and if you were to perform an intradermal test on me, you’d know when she was in it because you’d see the trails of blaze she left behind. Because that’s what I feel at the mere thought of her, and I’d rather live my life in flames than be numb without her.” He paused, and I let out a breath, but then he said one last thing. “Come back to me, my little Road Runner, my world is cold and boring without you.”

Easily one of my favorite second chance romances I’ve read to date. Period.


That’s about it for my list. But I’d like to do something different this time around, and also include some recs from fellow readers in my DGR’s Den of Iniquity group for this trope! Thank you Maria, Emma, Seyna, Carolin, and Jennifer <3

★DGR’s Ultimate List of Hate-To-Love Romance★

DGR-Ultimate list of hate-2-love Let’s talk about hate-to-love for a hot minute here, shall we? It just so happens that this is easily my favorite trope to read…EVAH. No joke. Something about the banter, that repressed sexual tension, the sparks that fly between the H & h when they argue yet you know they’re probably 2 seconds from jumping each other. *shivers* Delicious. So obviously what this means is that I’ve read a lot in this genre…like a lot. So much so, that when I started to put together my list, my brain began to hurt. There are so many books that I wanted to put on this list, but they’ve also been in my previous ones and so I decided not to mix genres. A lot of the hate-love I read in my dark romances, but since that’s not everyone’s cuppa and I already made my ultimate list of Anti-Heroes, I decided not to be redundant and skip this particular genre. If you’re curious about the Anti Hero list, you can read it HERE.

If you’re new to my blog, my Ultimate List is a monthly feature that I do on the last Saturday each month with my favorites in various categories, tropes, and whatever else. If you’ve missed any of my previous ones, you can read them all here:





But let’s get back to hate-to-love. You’ll notice my list is random and features books that were recently published and some from quite a while ago. I’ve read all the books on the list and they’re my go-to recs for this trope. I loved them! Of course there’s probably plenty that I haven’t read yet, so I’d love to hear about any of your favorites that I may have missed in the comments below. Now without further ado, let’s get to the list!

★The Hooker Line★ Most Anticipated Books

Hooker_Line_Episode1_LanaThe Hooker Line?
What is this? A new sex operator service?
Well, not quite. Alleskelle claims that she understands how the words hooker in a line associated with me could make you think that. But I say she’s a dirty whore. So that’s that.

But in all seriousness, The Hooker Line is simply real honest book talk between 3 book addicts. It came about as a joke between the three of us late one night when we were doing what we do best: bitching and gushing about books. And we thought, hey, why not make it a thing? So we did. Welcome to our very first Hooker Line feature between 3 book addicts and bloggers;

This month we had the choice between talking most anticipated books for the new year and new blogging goals…though in our usual fashion that subject veered off course REAL quick like. We can’t just ease you into our debauchery…or can we?prepare_your_anus_moment_6

Geri: … Let’s ease them into it.
Lana: I concur about easing. People will get the wrong idea…or right idea.
Geri: Like virgins don’t do anal on the first date. Sorry but it’s true.
Alex: Oooh so what you say is we need to use a smaller butt plug?
Geri: Yes. Easing. (Seems quite sure of herself) Smaller butt pugs first.
Alex: Then we need to start on this Hooker talk! We posted teasers about it. And after the teasing…
Geri: I’m good now.
Lana: I can do eet now!
Alex: Me too. Seriously?
Geri: How did we get to anal talk?
Alex: Lana started it. As usual.
Geri: No surprises.
Lana: I did NOT. It was that whore Geri!
Alex: You lie whore!
Lana: Quit lying you lie whore! I’m an anal virgin.

Lana: Quit trying to corrupt me with your whoring ways!
Alex: Yeah. Sure. Huh, huh.
Geri: Right.
Lana: So, er, anyway, weren’t we doing new releases or some shit?
Alex: We were about to talk most anticipated releases for 2016.
Lana: How did this turn into gang up on Lana anal talk?
Geri: No we were going to talk blogging goals.
Lana: We have goals? I have no goals so that may be a tough one.
Geri: Sorry the easing part started it all!
Alex: Maybe we’ll start with most anticipated books then goals?

Alex: I just need to be sure you two will behave.
Lana: That word…is foreign to me. Behave.
Geri: I can’t promise!
Lana: Even tastes funny when I say it out loud…
Geri: Right? Not in my vocabulary.
Alex: … So. No fighting about the next Kele Moon book. I call dibs on all her men. ALL of them.
Lana: Look, Alex. Just drop it, mkay? Just like I’ll drop you if you even go near my Nova.
Alex: I am greedy. And needy. And I called dibs. Therefore he is mine.
Lana: Isn’t that a song? LOL
Alex: It’s my song, sure.
Lana: Greedy whore. Has a nice ring to it.
Alex: Do you have to add “whore” at the end of your every sentences?
Geri: (*blows whistle) So, Hookers, reading first.
Alex: Okay, let’s put Nova aside. For now.
Lana: *grumbles* Fine, fine.
Geri: Let’s not discuss Nova yet.
Alex: But we will discuss him. I mean fight for him.
Lana: 51DCo07zQdL._SX309_BO1,204,203,200_Cuff Me by Lauren Layne! Can we talk about for a hot moment? Because I NEED! Alex: I can’t wait for this one! Morettis!!
Geri: Wait. Is that on Netgalley already?
Lana: Wait. What?
Alex: Shhhh! DO NOT mention Netgalley. Please. I’m trying to behave with arcs!
Lana: LMAO. *stays silent*
Geri: (*off to search said book on NetGalley)
Alex: (Is it though?)
Lana: LMAO! No. Geri is a teasing whore. But seriously though.
Alex: I need this Moretti! He is mine as well!
Lana: Me too!
Alex: Too late!
Lana: That hate lust thing is totally doing it for me. Wait. What? Quit taking them all you greedy bitch! Gawd.
Alex: I’m greedy… And needy…
Lana: Huge lust for this book. I’ve needed that book since the first one. He’s all grumpy and moody and yum yum. And she’s a sassy little thing too.
Alex: Yum yum? You lost brain cells already!

Alex: So Geri, which one are you dying to read?
Geri: Umm… aside from Kele’s book, nothing at the moment. I’m waiting on conclusions, those damn cliffies!
Lana: I threaten bodily harm about them on a daily basis. Cliffys that is.
Geri: I’m waiting for Thick Love next book. Sin & Suffer too.

Geri: Yes.
Lana: I still haven’t read anything by Penny Reid.
Alex: SHUT UP Lana. Get out. Now. I can’t even with you!
Geri: Not sure about the actress heroine though. I’m not fan of actors and actresses as main characters.
Alex: But wait Geri, it’s Penny. Maybe it’ll be awesome. She does romance differently.
Geri: That’s what I’m counting on. I’ll read anything by her.
Alex: Yes, me too. Such a singular voice. And plots.
Lana: Can I talk now or I’m still on time out?
Alex: Okay, you may come back. Behave. No anal.
Lana: Just lanA then.

Geri: Me too. Nothing safe with us!

Lana: I’ve come to realize recently I have like no hard limits in books.
Alex: That is… surprising, Lana. NOT.
Lana: You shut your whore mouth! No one asked you anyway!
Geri: I’m so confused.
Lana: Well, except twatty heroines. I can’t do twatty heroines.
