✪ On The Line (Hometown Players #5) ✪ Victoria Denault ✪ Release Tour ✪

Publication Date: December 6th, 2016
Publisher: Forever Yours
Genre: Contemporary Romance

He had total control of his game--until she changed all the rules . . .

As one of the best players in the NHL and the "golden boy" of the league, Avery Westwood knows he has to keep his cool--on and off the ice. His whole life is a carefully constructed image of perfection for the media and his brand sponsors. Of course, that means he can never let his true feelings show. But when it comes to the sexy sister of his former teammate, Avery might be willing to make an exception . . . even if it means breaking all his own rules.

As far as Stephanie Deveau is concerned, having a thing for Avery is the equivalent of psychological napalm. Tr
ès bad idea. Then he moves in next door, all sexy smiles and a deliciously hot body that she can't resist. Something's happening between them--it's intense, a little (a lot) out of control, and real. Only Avery doesn't know everything about Stephanie's past. And the one exception to his rule might just be the one girl who could destroy his career.

I am not going to lie, even though Avery Westwood was kind of mostly in the background of the previous books in this series, I didn't like the man. He was self serving, worried about himself and his image, and willing to do whatever it means to keep that image - no matter who he hurt to do it.

I was concerned that that was what we were going to get more of in On The Line, but I should never have feared, as Ms Denault has completely swung my opinion, and I am now completely on #TeamAvery.

I loved how he is with the girl he has been admiring for a while, Stephanie. I can understand why he has kept his distance - she's his teammate/friends sister after all. But

I adored Avery and Stephanie together. A big plus for me was that they didn't immediately fall into bed with each other, their relationship was kind of a slow burn (with lots of UST in the mix). But when they finally get their act together and get to the sexy times.. phew, it is hot hot hot.

I loved getting more of the guys and gals from the earlier books. I adore Seb (Stephanie's brother) and his overprotective streak. I love the banter with Alex (please, he needs to find his one!) and can't wait to see where this series goes next.

I am a huge fan of hockey romance, so I will keep reading this series as long as Ms Denault writes them.

✪ Road To Nowhere ✪ M. Robinson ✪ Release Blitz ✪

From USA Today Bestselling Author M. Robinson

I once read that every warrior hoped an honorable death would find him. I always went looking for mine, but not even the Reaper wanted me.

I was trained to kill. I was trained to not ask why. To take orders and just march in line. Hooah motherfucker.

Life or death.

Ride or die.

And Im not only talking about the military. Im talking about the life that led me on the road to nowhere.

My life.

I fought for my brothers.
I fought for my family.
I fought for my country.
And I fought for her

Never realizing I might die for them too.

Holy Sh!tballs!

I have read M. Robinson's books from the very first one, and each and every time I pick up a new book I think to myself "Self:  I know what to expect this time!"

And each and every time, Ms Robinson blows me away.  I know this is her at home as we read her books.  And as expected, this is what she has done to me... again

I was only a few chapters into Road To Nowhere before  she made me USC (ugly snot cry).  I knew she would do it to me.  I had the tissues ready for it.  But man I really did not see that coming at all!

I adored Mia and Creed.  From the sassy-mouthed 9 year old that first meets Creed to the young woman we watch blossom and grow, there was nothing I didn't love about her.

Creed - omg the feels.  I never knew if I was up or down with him *shakes fist at Ms Robinson*

I don't want to give anything away with this book, except to say please remain seated, fasten seatbelts, keep arms and legs within the carriage as you are about to go on an

What can I say but do yourself a favour and read this book.  Right now.  This instant!  Shoo!

Thank you Ms Robinson for another fantastic, brilliant read - now hurry up with the next one!



Mia Ryder.

Mia fuckin Ryder.

I sat at the train tracks. Desperately trying not to think about her, but it was easier said than done. She came into my life like a fucking hurricane, destroying everything in her path. A girl from the right side of the tracks, which for some reason I couldnt ever fucking fathom.

Falling for a man like me.

I had made mistakes, too many to fucking count, but life didnt give you a do-over.

All that was left for me to do was to accept them, even fucking embrace them. They became a part of me, as much as every tattoo that covered my body. Every one of them meant something to me. They were my battle scars. Far worse than the ones I got in war. In the eyes of others, they were just colorful, intricate art.

But to me...

They were my solace and my pain.

Nothing had changed since the last time I fucking lived in this godforsaken town. No welcome home party from family or friends, no thanks or parades from the town residents for serving our country.


Not one fucking thing.

Everything I had done, I had done for my family, for the MC, for her

I fought for my fucking brothers.

I fought for my goddamn country.

I fought for my girl.

Never realizing

I might fucking die for them too.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, and all that fucking shit. I once read that every warrior hoped a good death would find him. I always went looking for mine, but not even the Reaper wanted me. I thought fighting for something I believed in would make me a good man.

In the end, it never mattered. I would always be on the wrong side of the tracks, and they would always lead me to the wrong station. Changing my people, places, and things throughout the years didnt help change the outcome of the choices Id made.

Of the things Id done.

At the end of the day

I was already nailed to the cross.

I was fucking born on it.
