Her boyfriend is married (not to her), the restaurant she works for sells out to a chain (she’s unemployed), and her apartment building catches fire (thankfully, she didn’t start it). Faced with a job search and living with her parents, a phone call from her brother changes everything.
“Come out here, Little J. Escape for a while.”
Convinced to do just that, Jen finds herself on her brother’s doorstep in Chicago. Armed with her guitar and a bruised heart, she plans to work on her music and contemplate her future. What she doesn’t expect is to fall for the sexy, tattooed neighbor upstairs. From the moment Latson appears uninvited in her bedroom, the two can’t help but wage a battle of sarcasm and wit.
Until the attraction becomes impossible to ignore.
Hopeful the universe is finally playing fair, Jen gives in to her feelings. She should know, however, that when it rains, it pours. When offered the unexpected chance of a lifetime, she decides to pursue her passion. Unfortunately, her dreams are tied to Latson’s painful past. As time goes on and their distance grows, Jen fears fate conspired to bring them together only to tear them apart.

Cardinal is a standalone, contemporary romance for ages 17+. Cardinal is a spin-off of Sparrow; however, the books do not need to be read in order.

Louisa’s 4 Star review
Her life has just imploded…boyfriend – gone. Job – gone. Apartment – gone. What to do? Jen has always bounced back but this time what can she do? Thankfully her older brother invites her to stay with him for a while and just – find herself.
But she gets way more than she bargains for! Her chance meeting with Latson will be a pivotal moment in her life that she would never have never known would be the moment..that moment in life that changes your path.
Latson – the private neighbor upstairs, Jen’s brother’s boss and the man who every girls wants to be around. Latson is not the quintessential rock star that you may be expecting but oh man…he’s a keeper!
The interaction between Latson, Jen and Oliver will make you smile. This sweet little boy Oliver made this story complete for me. He brought these two broken souls together and helped them heal.
Latson was a rock star until the night that changed him happened. He chose to leave that life and be with Oliver, full time. Be the parent that Oliver needed and deserved. But Latson’s old bandmate offers Jen a chance in a lifetime and she takes it.
Sara Mack has created characters with depth. Yes, Latson was a rock star, but he was a flawed man too. She allows us to see the softer side of Latson which we don’t often get to see. Jen was so strong but needed someone to soften her heart and make her believe that all men weren’t dogs!
I loved this story, it was sweet, loving, heart wrenching at times but just such a nice story of life, love and hope
About the book:
My name is Madame X.
I’m the best at what I do.
And you’d do well to follow my rules…
Hired to transform the uncultured, inept sons of the wealthy and powerful into decisive, confident men, Madame X is a master of the art of control. With a single glance she can cut you down to nothing, or make you feel like a king.
But there is only one man who can claim her body—and her soul.
Undone time and again by his exquisite dominance, X craves and fears his desire in equal measure. And while she longs for a different path, X has never known anything or anyone else—until now…
Abby’s review 5 brilliant amazing stars
Holy all things book hangover. This is one of my favorite reads this year. To say I loved this is an understatement. I am in love with this book! It is complete and utter brilliance, and although I finished minutes ago, my heart is pounding hard still.
I NEED MORE
If I could bleed it out I would
I won’t talk much about the book because I don;t want to give anything real away. Madame X trains men, to be more man, less pussy.
You are like all the rest of you-oh, how I hate the lack of youplural conjugation in the English Language; other languages are so much more…
Wow that quote right there, that was in the first few minutes of the book! Jasinda’s writing is beyond superb. She is at her very best in this novel, and trust me I have loved some Jasinda. Do you guys remember how it felt to fall in love with Jasinda in Falling into You? This is that tenfold.
I don’t want to talk about the love, because I’m frustrated. I want something for her. I want her to want something for her.
Jasinda knows how to write love!
Oh, this kiss. It is all. The whole history and the entire potentiality of the future.
If words like that can’t make you fall in love with a scene, you’re reading the wrong genre. You have no busy loving romance because that is beauty at it’s finest.
I admit, I have only fallen in love with one other book this year so to have one that has floored me, and made me fall in love all over again with the author’s writing.
As there is something in the beauty of art that stirs the soul, so is there something in a profoundly vital silence that moves the heart .
This book is art, thanks for stirring the soul.
Hands blaze over my bared skin and ignite my desire against my will. I know all too well the heat of this touch, the fires of climax, the moments of afterglow when dark eyes drowse and powerful hands are stilled and I am allowed to let my guard down. I stand still, knees shaking, as lips scour and slide over trembling skin. My thighs are nosed open, and lightning strikes with the touch of a tongue to my slick skin.
I gasp, but a single look silences me.
“Don’t breathe, don’t speak, don’t make a sound.” I feel the whisper on my hip, feel the vibrations in my bones, and I nod my assent. “Don’t come until I tell you.”
I have no choice but to stand and accept silently the assault on my senses: down-soft hair against my belly, stubble on my thighs, hands cupping my backside, fury blooming within me. I hold it back, keep it tamped down, bite my tongue to silence the moans, fist my hands at my sides, because I haven’t been given permission to touch.
“Good. Let go now, X. Give me your voice.” A finger pierces me, curls, finds my need and sets it free, and I loose my voice, let moans and whimpers escape. “Good, very good. So beautiful, so sexy. Now show me your room.”
I lead the way to my bedroom, push open the door to reveal the white bedspread, plumped black pillows, all tucked and arranged, as required. I lie down, setting aside pillows, and wait. Eyes rake over my nude form, examine me, assess me.
“I think an extra twenty minutes in the gym would do you well.” This criticism is delivered clinically, meant to remind me of my place. “Trim down, just a touch.”
I hide the clutch in my gut, the ache in my heart, the burn in my eyes. Hide it, bury it, because it is not allowed. I blink, nod. “Of course, Caleb.”
“You are lovely, X. Don’t mistake me.”
“I know. And thank you.”
“It’s just that our clients expect perfection.” A lifted eyebrow indicates that I should finish the statement.
“And so do you.”
“Exactly. And you, X, I know you can deliver. You are perfect, or very nearly, at least.” A smile now, blazing and brilliant and blinding, excruciatingly beautiful, meant to soothe. A finger touches my lips and then traces favorite locations on my anatomy: lips, throat, breasts, hips. “Roll over.”
I move to my stomach.
“On your knees.”
I draw my knees beneath my stomach.
“Give me your hands.”
I reach back with both hands, and my wrists are pinioned in one large, brutally powerful hand. My shoulder blades touch each other as my arms are drawn together, and my face is pressed into the mattress. I swallow hard, brace, breathe.
Oh, the ache, the fierce throb as I’m penetrated. I’m rocked forward and my shoulders twinge and the grip on my wrists holds me in place.
I have no choice but to feel the burgeoning blaze, no choice but let it push through me and make me breathless, and I want to cry, want to cry, want to cry.
But I don’t.
I let myself go when I’m told to do so: “Come for me, X.”
And then it’s over, and I’m turned to lie on my back, gasping, and whispers bathe over me. “So good, X. So beautiful.” A finger to my chin, lifting my gaze. “Did you enjoy that?”
“Yes.” It’s not a lie. Not entirely, at least.
Physically, I am rocked to trembling. Physically, aftershocks still seize me and touch makes me shiver and I am breathless. Physically, yes, I enjoyed it. I cannot help but enjoy it.
Yet . . . there is a space within me, a deep, deep, deep well where truths I do not even dare think live hidden and always buried. Down there, where those truths reside, I know I crave . . . absolution, freedom, a breath taken in privacy, a word spoken without ulterior motive.
But I cannot let those thoughts bubble up. Cannot, and do not. I am a master of self-control, after all. I could hold off orgasm indefinitely. I could go without breathing until told to breathe or pass out. I could remain sitting motionless for hours, until told to move. I know I can do these things, because I have. I learned total control in the harshest of schools.
And so it is child’s play to let my body drape loosely in the guise of intimacy on a hard, taut, muscular body until a chime from discarded slacks demands attention.
“I have to take this.” A pause, a breath, a tap of finger on a cell phone screen. “This is Caleb. Yes. Yes. Sure, give me twenty minutes. Of course. No, don’t let him in until I get there.”
A kiss to my temple, a finger tracing my body from shoulder to hip to foot. “I have to go.”
“All right.” I don’t ask when to expect a return, because I don’t want to know, and because I wouldn’t get an answer.
“Will you miss me?”
“Of course.” This is a lie, and we both know it.
“Good. Your next client is in two hours, so you have time to shower, dress, and prepare. His name is William Colin Drake, and he’s the heir to a technology development company worth fifty billion. Usual terms and conditions apply. The file on William will arrive in the usual manner.”
“Should I expect as much trouble with William as with Jonathan?”
A quirk of a smile, amusement. “No, I should think not. William is a much different animal, from what I’ve observed.” A pause, and a speculative glance at me. “But, X?”
“Watch yourself with William. He’s got a mean streak.”
“Thank you for the warning.”
“He needs to learn to control it, so you’ll have to draw it out of him and make him aware of it. But be careful.”
Draw out his mean streak. Poke a snake, prod a sleeping bear. Risk injury. It won’t be the first time, and it won’t be the last. Hopefully I won’t need medical attention like I did last time. That’s not covered in the contract, of course, but it’s understood: Never, ever harm the property of Caleb Indigo; it’s just not smart business.
When the door closes behind a broad, suit-swathed back, I shower the sex-stink off. I scrub harder and longer than I have to and fight the boil of forbidden emotions. When my skin is rubbed raw, I force myself out of the shower and dress, apply makeup, remake the bed, prepare tea.
And then I seat myself on the couch and breathe, compose myself, push down the vulnerability, put away the fear and the desire. Once again, I am Madame X.

Trihn sighed and sank back into her seat just as the first ballerina floated on stage. As she reveled in the performance, Preston ran his hand up her arm and to her shoulder, sending shivers down her spine. She glanced over and him and he had this dirty smirk on his face. He wasn’t even watching the ballet. His eyes were solely trained on her.
She swallowed and stared back at the ballet in front of her, but her attention was torn. His fingers brushed her long tresses off her neck. The palm of his hand pushed flat against her skin and up into hair. He pulled it gently, and as her head dipped backward, her eyes closed of their own accord.
With his other hand, he laced their fingers together, bringing her hand to his lips. He tenderly kissed each knuckle before drawing her thumb gently between his teeth. She inhaled deeply.
He seemed to be enjoying himself as he kneaded the muscles in her neck. He leaned forward toward her and planted a soft kiss on the sensitive skin.
“Keep your eyes open. You don’t want to miss a second of this,” he breathed softly.
Dear God! He was teasing her. This was sweet blissful torture.
She could hardly concentrate. Keeping up with two things at once, when one was tempting her with everything she wanted, was harder than it seemed. She was glad that as the ballet drew to a close that she had seen it before or else she would have been entirely lost to what was happening much of the performance.
His touch was captivating, and she found she was a lost cause when it came to this man. She hadn’t just forgotten the ballet that was in front of her face; the world had disappeared all around her. In a sea of people, there was just him.
The curtain dropped unexpectedly, bright lights flooded the auditorium, and Trihn jolted upright. Preston sat up straight as if he hadn’t just been working her into a frenzy with the lightest touches imaginable. The smirk on his face was the only indication that anything was amiss.
As the curtain was raised and the dancers began to take their bows, Trihn rose on shaky legs to give the ballet that she couldn’t remember a standing ovation. Preston stood by her side, applauding. They clapped until everyone left the stage and people started filing out.
She exited into the aisle, and Preston grabbed her hand again.
“Hey, we’re not done,” he said. The words were suggestive and were accented by his hand squeezing around her waist.
“Oh?” she managed to get out.
“Come on. I think you’ll like this surprise better.”
“Why is that?” she asked.
“Because I like to finish the things that I start.”

OUR REVIEW OF GOLD
Seven years later, a summer working at Camp Chance is supposed to be my fresh start. Beautiful scenery and the chance to better the lives of foster children–kids like me. But when my eyes land on him across the fire, time stands still and feelings come rushing back to the surface. I thought I’d moved on, tucked him away in my heart. One look into his soulful blue eyes and I know I’m wrong. Blake Weston can heal the broken parts of me. Restore my hope. Love me.
It’s our second chance. A sign we are supposed to be together.
I was twelve when I survived the accident that killed my parents. Fourteen when I survived the devil. And sixteen, when I survived a heartbreak of the worst kind.
But in my twenty-three years, Blake Weston might just be the first thing I won’t survive.
“I, I’m not sure. The tall one, he looked familiar.”
“You mean Blake?”
My heart beat in double time.
And for a moment I was certain it stopped beating.
I couldn’t breathe.
I couldn’t swallow.
I couldn’t get out the words almost choking me.
My eyes snapped up at the sound of Marissa’s voice, and something caught my attention. Through the flames I saw the two guys talking. The one I thought I recognized was listening to the other guy, but he wasn’t looking at his friend. His blue eyes were set firmly on me.
Eyes I’d spent days and nights dreaming of.
Eyes that had kept the nightmares at bay.
Eyes I thought I’d never see again.
“Penny, you’re freaking me out a little over here.”
Marissa’s voice deflected off my impending meltdown. I came to Camp Chance to heal. Not to have every scar I’d ever been inflicted with ripped open again and laid bare.
But my past and present had just collided.
I never thought I’d see Blake Weston again, but he was sitting across the fire from me.
A ghost from my past.
Looking right at me.

An ARC of Suit was provided to Blushing Babes Are Up All Night in exchange for an honest review.
Some of the Aubrey Rules to Live By:
*If I’m going to indulge in French fries, I must add extra time to the treadmill the next day.
*Always keep your work and private life separate.
*Being open to new experiences will never involve eating kale.
*Never, ever date a professional athlete.
For Chicago social media professional Aubrey Paige, the rules are everything. So much so that Aubrey has painstakingly written her rules for living into a polka-dot Kate Spade notebook that she carries with her at all times. It’s her personal guidebook to living her life. These rules are the Holy Grail—ones never to be broken. They guide her actions for everything, from dealing with workplace drama to finding a great guy to date. After all, these are her own rules, built from her life experiences and observations. So they have to be perfect, right?
Or are they?
Because when Aubrey meets a cute Canadian, she suddenly finds her rules being tested and challenged in ways she never dreamed possible. Beckett Riley is the shy, quiet, determined captain of the Chicago Buffaloes, a hockey team on the verge of turning the corner to becoming a winning organization. He’s Aubrey’s opposite, with so many qualities that Aubrey had listed as ones she’d never want in a man.
Yet Aubrey finds herself drawn to Beckett in ways she’s never known. And when she unexpectedly finds herself working with Beckett, she wonders if rules are meant to be broken after all . . .
Nicole’s Review 4.5 stars
I can’t help myself. Really, I can’t. There is something about hockey players that makes my heart go pitter-pat. I mean, truly. I don’t know if it’s my love for the sport or my love for romantic heroes that just happen to be hockey players that gets me all excited. I guess it doesn’t matter when the romantic hero comes from a book that Aven Ellis wrote. She can write both VERY well! The Aubrey Rules is the first book in her new series Chicago on Ice. For those of you who’ve read Ms. Ellis’ books, you will notice that she now has, not one, but 2 HOCKEY SERIES!! (My heart just fluttered a little.) Bless you, Ms. Ellis. Bless you. In the Aubrey Rules, we meet young, smart and slightly naive, Aubrey Paige. She’s sweet, funny and all about playing life by the rules…her rules. Aubrey has a whole notebook chocked full of rules to live by. Things like keep your work and personal lives separate, non-negotiable qualities needed in a boyfriend, and a rule that perhaps all of us should aspire to: if you’re going to eat french fries, you must add time on the treadmill the next day. Aubrey’s rules are quirky and funny, but they are, more than anything, a look into her soul. Little did she know that when she met Beckett Riley, the Captain of the Chicago Buffaloes’ hockey team that her rules would need a serious overhaul! On the ice, Beckett is a beast. He’s big and powerful, and the leader of his team. Off the ice, he’s more like a mouse. Quiet, shy and awkward, Beckett really doesn’t enjoy being the center of attention. His world collides with Aubrey’s when she is hired to manage his social media accounts and help him become more accessible to his fans. Their first encounter has Aubrey breaking rules left and right, while Beckett watches amused. From the get-go, their chemistry is powerful. Not just the sexual tension that at times is palpable, but their banter and compatibility, as well. Theirs is a love story that gives you the giggles, the butterflies and the “oh my’s!” Once again, Aven Ellis tells a love story that leaves the reader satisfied and happy. Who doesn’t like a sweet love story that ends with a happy ending?
Name Your Link
Coffee with cream? Check. Soundtrack for work in progress pulled up on Spotify? Done. Ready to write another romantic comedy with a swoonworthy good guy hero, a heroine you cheer for, and a guaranteed happily ever after? You bet.
Hello, I’m Aven Ellis. I work in sports television production during the day and write romantic comedies at night. In addition to writing, I’m passionate about reality cooking shows, Project Runway, the latest scent from Jo Malone (whatever it is, doesn’t matter, I want it) and hockey. Or is that hockey players? Because they’re hot.
But I digress.
*Clears throat for reset after thinking of hockey players* But I truly find joy in writing romantic comedy. I love crafting characters, their words, their heartbreak and triumph, with laughs along the way. There is no bigger compliment to me than having someone tell me they laughed when reading one of my books. I want my books to be easy reading, a beach read, an escape when you need one. Writing them is my escape, so I hope reading them provides you with one, too.
A man walks into a bar…
That’s how all jokes start, but this isn’t a joke.
This is their story.
And all because, a man walked into bar.

Louisa 4 star review
I have been wanting to read a book by Ms. Paul, she’s practically a neighbor…I always want to support my local authors!
So – I really enjoyed reading about this couples life…Danny and Julie have experienced it all in 30+ years together. Their beginning, their love, their heartbreaks. I love a book that spans the lifetime of love. There are so many books that are so quick to fall in love, you wonder what their lives will bring once they are together and this book gave it all to me.
To be there when they have their highest high’s and lowest lows made my heart rate speed up and drop to all new lows. The tears were flowing…happy and sad tear both.
The devotion in which they had for each other is just palpable. The intimacy and love they share continues to grown through the years, through their happy and devastating times of their lives. They were always there for each other to lean on and to help survive the every day. Just a beautiful story of love, intimacy and devotion.
My only problem? I fell in love with these characters, their “children” they gain while owning their bar is Charistown. What’s wrong with that you say? This was my first book in the Charistown series. I was given a taste of the children in this unconventional family and I need to know their complete stories!
Now my TBR list have just grown by 4…I can’t keep up with all the amazing book out there! Damn you Lisa N. Paul!!
Lisa N. Paul is a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, reader, writer, blogger, and self-proclaimed comedian—just not always in that order. Ever since she was a little girl, she has devoured books. Falling in love with the Sweet Valley High series at a young age drew Lisa to series books and inspired her to write her own. Thursday Nights is the first book in her Charistown series.
When not writing, Lisa can be found eating french fries and Godiva raspberry truffles, or hanging out with her husband and two sons.
I believe in love at first sight.
Now I know soulmates exist.
Nothing has ever been easy for us.
Every fight, every struggle, has been worth it.
I’m stubborn, but what woman isn’t?
She’s hard work and I love the overtime.
He’s frustrating and unpredictable. I hope he never changes.
I love driving her crazy. That’s half the fun.
Lou’s sexy curls.
Honeybee’s pink nose.
He still looks at me like I’m precious and unflawed.
She treats me like I’m the center of her world.
Our future will be full of happiness.
Despite everything, we’re two of the lucky ones.
I took the bait.
She was a lucky catch.
He is the wind in my sail.
She’s the anchor that grounds me.
The wake our love made is beautiful.
Every day I thank God for her.
No matter the hurdles, we’ve jumped them side-by-side.
No matter the obstacles, we’ve made it through together.
For better or for worse, I’d do it again.
I’ll love and protect her all the days of my life.
We made it.
We always will.
LOUISA’S 5 ++++ STAR REVIEW
That sums up my feeling for this book. I have so thoroughly enjoyed this series. Wake and Bait may have been full of angst and uncertainty but his book…
It was 2 1/2 hours of beautiful love story. M. Mabie has given us such an amazing conclusion to the love story of Honeybee and Lou aka Casey and Blake.
Through all of it, the ups and down. The happy the sad…The tears and joy – this couple has just made me believe that there is true love out there in the book world. True – realistic unrelenting love!
I am alway such a fan of laughing while reading book and M. Mabie thrown in quite a bit of funny and absolutely there is some sexy, swooning parts too!
“…I’m sure your wife will have sex with you.
She better. I mean, it would be a shame to turn in a smoking hot girlfriend for a wife who doesn’t want to play with my wiener once in a while.”
“It’s lucky for you that I know you soon-to-be-wife, and she’s really looking forward to your…um wiener.”
If you want/need to read a book (or series) that leaves you happy and complete – this series is for you!
Just a beautiful beautiful ending to a beautiful love story!
KRISTINE’S 5 ++++ (INFINITY) STAR REVIEW
From the moment Casey Moore locked eyes with Blake Warren life as they knew it would never be the same, nor would my reading life. Sailing through their journey in the last two books have been one of my favorites. So when I saw the cover of Anchor, the third book, all the goose bumps rouse…it was beautiful!
“For star-crossed lovers under cloudy skies who never give up on love.”
M.Mabie could have not started this book with more perfect words. These two characters have found a place in my heart that will never be replaced. I do know they are not real but I don’t care, they are real to me because I know there has to be couples out there just like them. Ones that will fight the world to be with the one they love no matter the time and struggles they have to overcome. They can’t fathom a life without the one that they are supposed to be with.
I remember while I was reading Bait, I heard the song Kiss Me by Ed Sheeran and all I could think of was Casey and Blake. Lou and Betty….my favorite part in the café. If you have read Bait you know what I mean and what great memories to look back on. These memories that remind you of what these two had to fight for….sooo much. Sooo much we would all fight for. If you find your Lou then keep a hold on him, if you let him go, plan on living a life with a broken heart.
In Sail we see a whole lot of fight. We cry, we yell…frustration hits us to see their pain. Until it hits a point that we see that all of this was worth it…
Anchor pulls these two books together and we see our Betty and Lou the way they are supposed to be. Anchor has meaning to these too…..this is where they were always meant to be and forever will be.
“My heart, and everything else, belongs to him. I had already been his for such a long time. I refused to wait any longer.” ~ Blake
These two are stronger than ever.
“We’d trained ourselves to starve when everyone around us feasted on love. It was our time to binge.” ~ Casey
“I love you, honeybee. So much. And there were times I thought I’d love you alone for the rest of my life. Loving you forever would have happened whether I got to keep you or not.” ~ Casey
I never read a book more perfect to fit the characters as this one. Every scene was set up in a way that blew me away….oh I want to talk so bad about these scenes in this review but don’t want to give anything away. I want all you readers to experience these perfect words as I did. I think I’m going to type the word perfect till I can’t type no more. I think I highlighted every word in this book…..every part made me melt in a puddle of awe! I wanted to jump into this book and be Blake for just a moment to experience the touch and look from Casey. Did I mention I want to be a honeybee, how Casey was my book lover boy now to my book hubby! So by now I think you get that I loved this book. I don’t think there is a number invented on how many stars I would give this, infinity I’ll use then! If you read Bait and Sail then you need to read this ASAP! If you haven’t experienced these yet….you have to TAKE THE BAIT, RIGHT NOW.
“Because once upon a time a curly headed boy named Casey walked into a bar and found his whole world sitting on a stool and he didn’t quite know how to handle it. And once upon a time a smoking-hot young lady named Blake offered him some trouble, not knowing what she was getting into.~ Casey

Sail… Wake, #2

M. Mabie lives in Illinois with her husband. She writes unconventional love stories and tries to embody “real-life romance.”
She cares about politics, but will not discuss them in public. She uses the same fork at every meal, watches Wayne’s World while cleaning, and lets her dog sleep on her head. She has always been a writer. In fact, she was born with a pen in her hand, which almost never happens. Almost.
M. Mabie usually doesn’t speak in third-person. She promises.
