SYNOPSIS

Hannah Bloom arrives on campus for her senior year of college a new woman. No more mortifying acne—though she still bears the scars—and no more trying to be invisible. She has two goals: get into med school and have sex before graduation. But getting into med school may prove easier than having sex, because Hannah has a secret—she’s never even been kissed.

What she needs is a tutor who’ll give her lessons in all the things she’s missed out on, and Casey Grant is the perfect candidate. Her dorm’s resident player, he’s not only the hottest guy she’s ever seen, he already knows her secret.

The only trouble is, nothing goes according to plan. Their lessons don’t feel like lessons, they feel like the real thing. She tries to date other guys, but nothing can compare with what she has with Casey. If she’s not careful she’ll fall for him just like every other girl on campus—and have her heart broken like them, too.

REVIEW

4 Stars!!

  • Amazon-https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R1ENMYEM010AHP

Hannah Bloom is starting her senior year of college, ready to have a year of firsts. For the past three years, she has stayed away from everyone due to terrible cystic acne. Thankfully, her doctor put her on some medication and except for some slight scars, her skin looks great. I felt for Hannah because you could tell she had scars on the inside which hadn’t been healed by medication.

Wanting to put herself out there, but maybe not all the way, she asks Casey Grant who she’s sure she won’t fall for. For one, he’s a huge player and second, her friend dated him and still likes him. Of course, she didn’t count on the fact feelings begin to develop for both of them. She wanted Casey, yet didn’t want to be one of many and Casey wanted Hannah, but was confused by his feelings for her.

I enjoyed reading A First Time For Everything because it was pretty realistic, especially Hannah’s ordeal with acne and her feelings of insecurity. Ms. Morin is a new-to-me author and I look forward to reading more of her work. I give A First Time For Everything four stars and recommend it to those who love New Adult or college romance.

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.

Throughout my entire life I’ve made choice after choice to land me where I am today. Nothing is perfect, and the same views can be said about life.

We all struggle and wish things could be different but it simply isn’t the case. If you want anything, whether it be as simple as happiness, you must work for it.

At the end of the day, that’s what landed me in this job, doing the things I do, one day hopeful it will bring me a better life.

I can only hope that day comes soon.

Davide

I’m the type of man who adores women. Any chance I get, I choose to revel in their flesh against mine. Although, I’m not the type of man to ever settle down – even if the Clan demands it of me.

Never have I envisioned life with a woman by my side and a baby on her hip. It’s simply never been in the cards. I prefer to go to the brothels around Europe, enjoying the company of the most exquisite, prestigious women. They may not be from prominent families, but these aren’t whores you find on the street. They’re smart, witty and gorgeous.

I’d been seeing another woman at this Venice brothel, however, she went and got pregnant . . . so I’m about to meet a new woman. One of the Madame’s favorite girls, one who she tells me will change my life.

I suppose we’ll see if she does.

Forbidden on Ice (Boys of Winter, #8) by SR Grey

Title: Forbidden on Ice
Series: A Boys of Winter Novel
Author: S.R. Grey
Genre: Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: March 3, 2020

“Hilarious and perfectly ‘played’ sports romance that I devoured in one sitting! I can’t wait to read more.” – #1 NYT Bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken

“The usual Grey crisp writing, lovable heroes that you kinda want to slap, and a heroine that doesn’t back down,” Resistance on Ice is another fun standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.” – Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills

Review
4 stars!!
Forbidden on Ice is Blake Cavaletti and Noelle Sandlund’s story. Blake has just been traded to the Las Vegas Wolves and is new to the area. He meets Noelle in a bar, having no idea she is the sister of his teammate, Noel. Combine amazing chemistry with a secret relationship along with hot hockey players and you have an amazing book. I enjoyed reading this installment of the Boys of Winter series. Can’t wait for Landen’s story.

They say that which is forbidden tastes the sweetest. And you know what?

It is abso-effin-lutely true.
My name is Blake Cavaletti, and I was recently traded to the Las Vegas Wolves hockey team. But before the season even started, I met the coolest girl. Her name is Noelle, and she’s hot as sin.
Too bad it may now end before it even begins. See, I just found out the girl I like so much is my teammate Noel Sandlund’s twin sister.
Talk about messed up!
He’s a friend of mine and uber-protective of his sister.
Man, how did I not see the resemblance? Must’ve been Noelle’s amazing boobs and fabulous ass that threw me off. Or maybe it’s because she’s so perfect for me.
Somehow, though, I don’t think that’ll fly with Noel. No, he’s probably going to kill me when he finds out.
That’s why he can never learn the truth.
Not until I prove myself—to the team, to Noelle, and to her protective brother.
Before it all blows up.
Forbidden on Ice is the eighth novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

S.R. Grey is an Amazon Top 30 Bestselling Author and a #1 Barnes & Noble Bestselling Author. Check out her newest bestselling Boys of Winter hockey rom-com series. Each is a complete standalone novel, but the characters are interconnected and may pop up anywhere.
Ms. Grey’s novels have appeared on multiple Amazon Bestseller Lists, including the Top 100 several times. She is also a Top 100 Bestselling Author on iTunes.
Residing in Pennsylvania, when not writing Ms. Grey can be found reading, traveling, running, and cheering for her hometown sports teams. Sometimes all at the same time!

Box set of the first three books in the Bestselling Lawson Brothers series – ]Love So Hot, Love So True, and Love So Irresistible.

#Blurb
Love So Hot
Bank Teller and all around good girl, Sydney McKnight, is tired of being the girl all the guys want to have as a friend. Who better to help unleash her inner vixen than her best friend and secret crush, Brody Lawson? Only, Sydney has no idea how to ask him, without their friendship going up in flames, until that is, the town of Jessamine’s annual Firemen’s Auction gives her the perfect excuse to set her plan into motion.

Fire Captain Brody Lawson has been in love with his best friend, Sydney, for years, but he would never risk their friendship by confessing his feelings to her. So, when Sydney beats out the competition to buy his time at the annual Firemen’s Auction, Brody can hardly believe his luck until she asks him to teach her how to seduce a fellow fireman.

Now, it’s up to Brody to show Sydney how perfect she already is and convince her that the only man for her is him, because if Sydney is going to seduce any man, it’s going to be him. And once he has her in his bed, he’s not letting her go.

Love So True
Single mom, Bailey Yates, has had enough of bad boys to last her the next eighteen years. She’s always been a sucker for them, and Jessamine’s ultimate bad boy, Lucas Lawson, is no exception for her. So, when he returns to town, naturally she’s drawn to him. And naturally, she must avoid him at all costs—no matter how attracted she is to him. She’ll give him a job, and keep her distance…until Lucas saves her son from a hit and run.

Finally, Lucas Lawson is a free man. After serving five years in prison for embezzlement, he’s come home to Jessamine to right the wrongs he committed against his friends and family. But, it won’t be easy. For starters, the brother he’s looked up to his entire life wants nothing to do with him, and no one in town trusts Lucas enough to give him a chance to make amends. Until, Bailey Yates gives him a job at her family’s diner.

Love So Irresistible
All former Navy SEAL Mason Lawson craves is solitude. Unfortunately, his new neighbor won’t allow him the peace he so desperately needs. Between the traffic and the music, Mason is constantly on edge—not exactly what the doctor ordered for someone recovering from a bullet to the leg. However, when he finally has enough and confronts his neighbor, nothing can prepare him for how hot he’d get for the teacher next door.

Piano teacher Skylar Jernigan loves everything about the town of Jessamine—from the quaint Main Street shops to the people who own them. Unfortunately, once she’s chewed up and spit out by her sexy neighbor, Skylar begins to question her decision to move to a new town. Until, that is, she learns he’s suffering from a war wound and refuses to have anything to do with his family.

Now, Skylar is determined to help Mason recover—mentally, physically and socially—until he turns the tables and sets out to seduce Skylar right out of her meddling ways. Only seduction turns into something more and soon, Mason can’t stop looking for excuses to be with her. But when the Navy wants Mason to reenlist for a dangerous mission, will Skylar be too irresistible for him to leave?
