✸ Synopsis ✸

Brock Blackthorne is the keeper of the family brand and he takes that role seriously. His job is to protect the Blackthorne image, to keep the company’s reputation as clean as possible, and ensure that skeletons stay well-hidden at the family compound in King Harbor, Maine. So when an ambitious and inquisitive biographer is tasked to pen an “authorized” profile of the Blackthornes, Brock is forced to personally guide the beautiful writer far away from any family landmines. But the more time he spends sharing the history and heart of his unusual clan, the more he realizes how much he wants this captivating woman in his arms…and in his life. The daughter of renowned investigative reporters, Jenna Gillespie has a lot to prove when she takes on the task of writing the first in-depth biography of one of America’s wealthiest families. Raised to question every source and burned by the last one she trusted, Jenna seethes with resentment toward the maddeningly sexy Brock Blackthorne. Not only does he detour her every time she attempts to discover the real story about the family’s multi-million dollar whisky making recipe, he also has her feeling things that threaten the walls she’s built to protect a few secrets of her own. 

 As Jenna gets closer to what she believes is a shocking truth, she has to trust the one person whose job it is to see her fail. And if Brock allows her into the inner-workings of the business and family, he has to believe she won’t betray him. There is much more than pride at stake when these two give up the control they cherish…there is a chance for a lifetime of love.

Review by Barbara

Loved this storyline from start to finish. The author’s wonderful writing style had me laughing, smiling and feeling all the emotions the characters were going through as I flipped through the pages.

Brock is in charge of keeping his family’s reputation in tack, a job he takes very seriously. Jenna is a reporter whose career is on the line pending the current assignment she has been given: a tell all book on the Blackthornes. She has been given the hint of a scoop but needs confirmation. A scoop that Brock infactitly denies but decides to work with her in order to keep an eye on her as well as help finally put old rumors to rest. But being together day and night brings out sparks neither one of them expects. 

This is a very well written heartwarming story that will take you on a fun and exciting journey to find the truth both in the Blackthornes Whisky family and in Brock and Jenna themselves. I highly recommend Brock and all the books thus far in the Blackthornes series. 2 Thumbs Up and 5 Stars.

Review by Kathy

Oh my goodness... I loved Brock's story! Captivating and funny from the very start, we finally get a look at the live of the keeper of the brand, the one who is always looking out for the family's name as well as it's reputation and lineage. Wealthy and powerful yet down to earth and family orientated, the handsome businessman is sought after by many women, but until he meets the beauty that shares a cab with him in the middle of a thunderstorm, he has never met a woman who captured more than just his attention. Both drenched and having to abandon their cab ride because of their driver, they race through the pouring rain to a nearby pub. It isn't until Jenna is in the restroom that she finds out that the man she is to be meeting in the morning is in the pub she and "David" just arrived at. She needs to get out of there before he sees her. Confused, David figures that she found out that an ex was inside. It isn't until the morning that they both find out who the other is. Brock is surprised to say the least that Jenna is the appointment that was set up for him and that she is there to write a book about his family. Jenna is really surprised to learn that her David is none other than Brock Blackthorne, the man she left the pub for, the one she was nervous and anxious to meet to discuss writing her book. The man she knew and spent the night with as David. Oh this story just keeps getting better and better. He can't get enough of her and she...well she's going to be writing a book about his family so what happened between them the night before, cannot happen again. Or can it? 

Wonderfully written story line with characters that you cannot help but fall in love with. I am thoroughly enjoying this series and cannot wait for the next book and to find out what secret Claire has been keeping!!

I highly recommend this book, this series.

Book Trailer

Review by Kathy

The wisecracking, in your face guys and gals of Reed Security are back and are rebuilding their business. Gone are the major threats, but now no one has a home and the women have lost their jobs so everyone is starting back at square one. The teams are having to rebuild, new people are needing to be brought in, which has the current guys worried that they will be put behind a desk because of age and slow recuperation from the injuries some of them sustained during the huge attack on the facility. Chance is the worst of them all. His flashbacks are getting worse, his nightmares are still going strong and now his relationship with Morgan is on the line as everything he is going through is changing him. He is not getting better. Time is not helping him and until he realizes and accepts professional help, no one is safe. At some point, Cap knows he will have to step in and lay down the law, hopefully before it's too late. 

The ladies have decided to start their own business...online sex toy sales. But the name that they come up with has placed them in a major situation with their very lives on the line. Welcome into the fold a new member (maybe). Also possibly joining the crew is Tony Taco (yea, got his name because he was working at Taco Bell). He's former military and having a hard time adjusting to civilian live. After helping Maggie with some men that were after her, she offers him a place on the team...after Sebastian meets him and checks him out of course...Surprise Sebastian!!!

This is a wonderfully written story line with characters that you love from the first time you meet them. You care about all of them and with Chance, it is hard watching him spiral downwards. I love this series and I am sure you will too. I highly recommend this book, this series!

Read an Excerpt

“Alexa, play Sam Tinnesz.”
I waited as it was searching and cringed when Mmm Bop by Hanson came on.
“What the f*@k? Alexa, play Legends Are Made by Sam Tinnesz.”
Alexa searched again, this time playing John Legend.
“You’ve got to be f*@king kidding me. I just want something good to listen to. Alexa, play Hold On For Your Life by Sam Tinnesz,” I said slowly, accentuating every word.
And then the opening strands of Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On started to play.
“F*@k it.” I sloshed back down in the water, trying to ignore the girly song that was playing while I was trying to relax. I actually found that it was working. The soothing melody had me sinking into such a relaxed state that I didn’t even notice the door opening.
“What the hell are you listening to?” My eyes flew open in surprise. Chris was standing in the doorway with a smirk on his face. “Want me to get you a cocktail?”
“Actually, I’d love one,” I retorted. “I tried to get the f*@king thing to play something else, but like any woman, she just did whatever the f*@k she wanted.”
“Alright, let’s see what we got here.” He walked over to a mini fridge in the corner. I had expected to find water, but instead saw some kind of girly cooler. 
“Toss me one.” 
Chris popped the top and handed one to me and then got one for himself. After draining half of it, he got undressed and got in with me. “Is this weird?” he asked as he settled in.
“Sitting in the hot tub together?”
“Yeah. You know, it’s kind of like bathing together. You’re sweaty. I’m sweaty….”
I nodded. “I gotcha.” I reached over to the ledge and grabbed a bottle of body wash, pouring in a generous amount. Bubbles filled the tub and I grinned, pleased with myself.
“Yeah, that’s not at all weird,” Chris muttered. “Now we’re taking a bubble bath together.”
“But we’ll be clean,” I pointed out. “What’s worse? Sitting around in each other’s filth or sitting in soap together?”
“Soap is only clean as long as it’s in the bottle. Once it’s in the water, it’s just dirty soap.”
“It’s self-cleaning.”
“Oh, God.” Chris and I turned to see Jules standing in the doorway with Alec and Rocco. “Are you two taking a bubble bath?”
“It’s a hot tub,” I corrected. “The bubbles are just to get us clean.”
“That’s what a shower is for,” Jules pointed out.
“Hot tubs are very good for the muscles,” Rocco said as he yanked off his shirt. “I’m in.”
“Grab me another cooler before you get in,” I said. 
Rocco stripped down to his shorts and climbed in with a cooler for each of us. “Ah, this is great. My body is killing me today.” He closed his eyes and then opened them, narrowing in on me. “Are you f*@king listening to Celine Dion?”
I shrugged. “You get the b*%ch to play something else.”

Meet the Author

I'm a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, "No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book." I didn't think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn't already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven't been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

Checked by Jacob Chance is Available Now

Title: Checked 
Series: Boston Terriers Hockey
Author: Jacob Chance
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: August 23, 2019

✦ ✦ Synopsis ✦ ✦

They call him ‘Wilde Man’. Rumor has it he’s an animal on the ice and between the sheets.

Like the rest of the female population, I’ve been crushing on Clancy Wilde, the captain of Boston University’s hockey team, since the first time I saw him. Big, blond, and charming, he ticks all the boxes. 

When we find ourselves at a wedding, drunk and flirting, I know I can finally check this tattooed, bad boy, hockey player off my wish list.

One night is all it was meant to be, until I see two pink lines on the pregnancy test.

How did the notch on my belt turn into a ball and chain?

“Oh my gosh! This book was amazing!” - Christine~justlovemybooks.com blog

“No one writes a confirmed bachelor turned swoony, love-of-your-life like Jacob. Get ready ladies, Clancy is going to steal your heart!” - Keri Loves Books

“Anytime Jacob Chance releases a novel I spare as much time as necessary to devour his words!” - Words We Love by Blog

Review by Barbara

I love Mr. Chance’s writing style. His series just seem to get better with each and every book. This is especially true with the Boston Terriers athletes. I simply adore young adults. They have captured my heart as they conquer opposing teams on the turf/rink and fall face first into unexpected relationships. I find this series to be fun, flirty, sexy, heartfelt and a pleasure to read.

Clancy Wilde has worked hard for years with one goal in mind, make it to the majors and get a contract with the NHL. His time is spent on school, on the ice, training or with his mom. He doesn’t have time for relationship. For Clancy it’s one and done, earning him the reputation of being “the Wilde Man” (both on and off the ice).

Tenley has lusted after Clancy, her best friend’s cousin, since she was in high school. He checks off all her boxes but she knows him to be a player and she just isn’t into one nighters. But when she bumps into him at her friend's wedding, sparks fly and she gives into his offer for one night. After all, they live 7 states away from each other and why not make a least one of her dreams come true.  But when one magical night turns into a baby on the way, both their lives are forever changed.  

Checked will have you laughing, smiling and rooting for a happy ending. Kudos to the author for a wonderfully written storyline with outstanding down to earth characters. 2 Thumbs Up and 5 stars for an amazing book that I highly recommend grabbing up. You won’t be sorry you did.
