The Realtor and the Rock Star by J.L. Berg: Finally making it big in the music industry means only one thing for Kennedy Kade — a coastal dream come true. Hell bent on finding the Malibu home of her dreams, she hired top realtor to the stars, Ryan Rhodes. He’s arrogant, hot as sin and has Kennedy wondering just what she’s gotten herself into. A rockstar and a realtor? Crazier things have happened!

The Right Direction by Kathy Coopmans: “Our someday will come soon, Joslyn.” Those words were the last words I heard from Roman Nixon before I walked away. After years apart, our opposite worlds collide. This time, we may get our someday. But first, we have to find a way to steer us in the right direction.

Rebel by Molly McAdams: The rock star who frequented my dreams and haunted my sheets.
The boy who vowed to be my forever.
The man who shattered my world.
I hated him.

Rocking the Racer by Erin Noelle: A second chance encounter between rock star Ashlynn Templeton and F1 driver Milan Barcelo leads to sparks flying even hotter than their first rendezvous, this time racing the clock and the chance of getting caught.

Play Me by Jessica Prince: I was the responsible one, the care taker, the girl who made all the right decisions. Until I met Maddox Sheppard. Now he’s turned my world upside down, and I’m loving every minute of it.

What About Us? By Yessi Smith: We were a fleeting moment that passed too quickly.
A spark, a sizzle that faded with her.
When chance brings us back together, I’m set on showing her sometimes life does give us a fairy tale.

The Song by Rachel Van Dyken: Even rockstars have tender hearts–especially when it comes to building a family.

To Feel Loved by Jennifer Van Wyk: One look at her and I knew one night wouldn’t be enough.
One look at him and I desperately wanted something I lost long ago… to feel loved.

Cardinal Sins by Kristin Vayden: Cardinal has many sins.
Wrath: Because she stole what belonged to him.
Envy: For every other man that’s known her touch.
Greed: For wanting her back—against his better judgment.
But even the wicked can find redemption—and sometimes it starts with revenge.

I loved this anthology. It was full of amazing stories that were sweet, fun and fast. Some made me want to read more and to demand of authors to write the next part but that's what reading is about, isn't it? That feeling of wanting more and when you just can't wait to get that next segment of the book.

This was a perfect holiday anthology and you all need to check it out to get into the holiday spirit. It sure worked with me because I love Christmas more than anything else.

Celebrate the holidays with awesome books like this box set. Enjoy!

Can I just say, " Wow", and be done? That's what this book made me think. I was just not expecting the storyline from the synopsis.  It was so much more than a guy looking for a roommate, nothing romantic, just someone to come home to after a long work week and the gal that answers his ad.  I was expecting more of a romantic comedy type of book that was going to be guy and girl are roommates and one thing lead to another and then they become roommates with benefits, but I was happily way off.  I love how the author was able to pull me in and keep me hooked until the very last word.   This is the first book I have read by this author, but I guarantee it will not be my last.  You have all these great intentions when going to a book signing that you are going to read books of the attending authors before and after, but life happens and you can’t always do that and that's what happened with this author and this book. I not only did this after one signing, but two.  So when I saw that she had another book coming out, I made it a point to make sure to read it. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to finally read something she wrote. 
Cash and Jade are so not what I expected and there are plenty of laughs along their journey, but it is so much more and things are not always happy times or fun.  Cash has a very dangerous job and the things he sees and does keeps him from seeing the bright side of things.  Jade has had a traumatic youth with baggage and is now a single mom.  The author has a wonderful way of writing which develops the characters while each sides of the story is told by Cash's and Jade's points of view. You really get an understanding of what is happening, yet at the same time, being taken on a curvy road of unexpected twists.   
All is not what you are thinking and time isn’t rush in moving the story along, it goes at just the right speed.  I love their roommate agreement and how many time it was modified during the story, it just worked and it is so much better than Sheldon’s on The Big Bang Theory.  Stevie is great as a secondary character, too. I just have one issue in that I feel like she was forgotten near the end the book for the role that she played.  All the secondary characters were great and added to either the laughs or suspense in this story.  I can’t wait to read more from this author as I will be finding the time and be watching for her next release. She has gained a fan that recommends you read this great book.

Author Bio

She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.

She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.

The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.

The muscles in Kieran’s jaw ticked, and the anger rolling off his body suddenly felt like a living thing. But his stare never wavered from mine as I soundlessly opened the knife at my side.
“Or did I hit a little too close for comfort last night?” I asked, my voice both seductive and mocking as I took another step closer to him and then another. “Could you just not satisfy her?”
My brows rose at the growl behind his demand. “Is that right?”
His eyes held so much warning as I took the last step to press my body against his.
My body trembled and begged to get closer still, but I forced myself not to move.
I hated him for the way he felt. 
I hated him for the way my body craved more and betrayed me.
I hated him for everything he was and for making me want him in a way I’d never wanted a man.
I hated him.
“Who knew the mob’s feared assassin was lacking.”
One second I was in front of him, staring into those wild eyes, the next I was pressed face-first to the wall with Kieran’s hard body caging me against it. His strong hands were pinning mine to the wall. My knife was gone.
His chest moved roughly against my back, his breath made my hair dance along my cheek and lips, and I ached to push against where I could feel his hardened length in his jeans.
Oh God.
What is wrong with me?
I tried to force a wild laugh from my lungs.
I tried to taunt him.
But there was nothing.
“How long?” he demanded, his voice hoarse.
I curled my hands against the wall and shivered beneath him when his body moved closer and he pressed our hands harder to the wall.
“What?” I asked breathlessly.
“How long have you been watching us?”
“Wouldn’t you like to know?”
A huff tumbled from my lips when his mouth met my ear. The sound ended on a whimper when the movement forced my butt against his erection.
I needed the heavy, sickening feeling weighing my body down. I needed the disgust and hatred at having a man so close. I needed the reminder of who I was and why I did what I did.
But all I could smell was the subtle hint of his soap.
All I could see was his tattooed arms twisting over mine.
All I could feel was his lean muscles crowding around me in a way that felt so foreign and good.
And I wanted more . . .
Weak. So weak.
“How long?”
My body tensed.
If he had yelled the question, it might have been easier. But there was something truly terrifying in the soft tenor of his voice. And for the first time, I was afraid to be in the same room as him.
But I wasn’t scared for my life.
I was scared for my soul.
I slowly looked over my shoulder and forced myself to hold his disturbing stare. “Nearly half my life.”

A powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.

A captivating romantic suspense that will keep you breathless until the last sentence.

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and fur babies. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm … or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.
