✍🏻 Happy Release Day, Katana Collins. Wingwoman is LIVE! ✍🏻

Every hit song starts with one thing… heartbreak.

Wingwoman, an all-new steamy, country rockstar romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Katana Collins is available now!

As a country rockstar, I know one thing for sure: Every hit song starts with one thing… heartbreak.

She had two weeks to find my next muse…

…or she, herself, had to become it.

As a country rockstar, I know one thing for sure: Every hit song starts with one thing: heartbreak.

I’ve got six weeks to write my next hit album or else I’ll lose everything: My label. My ranch. My horse rescue.

In order to save everything else, I have to lose the most important thing of all: My heart.

Which means that to write this album, I need a muse.

This is where hiring Hope Evans comes in. Professional Wingwoman and matchmaker extraordinaire.

There’s one problem – my muse has decided it wants Hope.

Another problem? Hope refuses to be The One.

So I made her a bet. She has two weeks to find me a muse… or she herself has to become it.

If she loses our bet, she’ll be losing her heart.

Because hearts like mine don’t love…

They shatter.

In fact, I’m counting on it.

✍🏻 Professor Romance’s 4.5 ⭐️ Review: J. Saman’s Irresistibly Perfect ✍🏻

Overall Grade: 4.5 ⭐️

Tropes:  friends to lovers; forbidden romance; opposites attract; forced proximity; band of brothers; found family; rockstar romance

I’m in love. I’m in love with J. Saman’s Greyson from her newest book, Irresistibly Perfect. If you had told me that I would not be able to put down a friends to lovers romance, I would have laughed at you. It isn’t my favorite trope, but I’m a fan of J. Saman’s stories. And Greyson and Fallon don’t disappoint. This is delicious friends-to-lovers romance. Greyson is swoony in that he adores Fallon even after years of estrangement. When Fallon decides to break her engagement and end her engagement, Greyson becomes her “ride-or-die” and the deliciousness of their attraction takes center stage in this book. 

What did I adore about this story?

*Once Fallon knows she’s not marrying her fiance, Greyson is intent on wooing Fallon. I was drawn into their relationship even as Fallon was denying her feelings for Greyson. His ability to win her over through spice and care is pure swoon!

*I love Fallon’s journey because I relate to her need to do what others expect. She’s the good girl, doing everything her parents want for her even if it’s at the expense of her happiness. As the details of her life unfold, J. Saman invests us in Fallon’s resolve to live her life on her terms. This quickly evolves into Greyson and Fallon acknowledging their feelings. This happens about 70 to 80% into the story, and they become a power couple through the book’s end. 

*I will always love the found family/band of brothers trope. In Saman’s series, she’s writing the camaraderie of Greyson’s former boy band members and brother in a way that begs for more stories. Their ability to be real with each other, while advising and protecting each other is a huge draw in Irresistibly Perfect. 

If you haven’t read J. Saman yet, grab this book. Even better, start with book 1, Irresistibly Broken. I dare you not to fall in love with the guys of Central Square. I can’t wait for future stories in the Irresistibly Yours series.

In love and romance,

Professor A

When I was fourteen, I fell in love with the girl next door.

My best friend’s sister was off-limits to me in every way.

I was the bad boy, and she was the good girl. I was the kid with big rock star dreams, and she was the princess with her entire life planned out for her.

We were impossible from the start. Even when she’d randomly show up at my concerts and we’d spend a night or two lost in each other it would always end in goodbye.

Years later she’s back in our city.

Only now, she’s engaged to the last guy I’d ever want to see her with. So I do something crazy.

I never expect to hear from her again until one night she takes me by surprise. 

A drunken phone call and suddenly I’m racing through the airport to catch her plane before she takes off for Europe.

Now I’ve got one week to change both our lives.

My plan? Make her fall in love with me as we get lost in Italy and France. Her plan? Discover the woman she wants to be instead of the perfect one she’s always had to be.

I’d love to tell you that from here on out it’s all love and sex, but nothing has ever been easy for us, and this is no exception.

Fallon Lark has always been mine. Now I just have to prove it to her.

✍🏻 Professor Romance’s 4 1/2 ⭐️ Review: A.L. Jackson’s Kiss The Stars ✍🏻

Overall Grade: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

If you fell in love with the rock stars of Sunder in A.L. Jackson’s Bleeding Stars series, then you WANT to read Kiss The Stars, Jackson’s newest offering. A standalone in her newest series, the Falling Stars series, Kiss The Stars marries the rockstars of Jackson’s group, Carolina George, with the rock stars of Sunder. It’s a story about brokenness and finding a completion in another person when you believe your penance for past sins shouldn’t allow it. As we found with the men of Sunder, Leif, the hero of Kiss The Stars, is more of the fraught heroic type, something we adore about Jackson’s stories. He’s a compilation of pieces broken by devastating events while seeking retribution for his losses. Jackson’s heroine, Mia, has also been fractured by the death of her best friend. Grieving and feeling lost, while needing to be stalwart for her children, she’s searching. One night, these two damaged souls meet, and their chemistry is electric. It is here where Jackson does her best work. It would be easy to simply love this story, but, to be honest, Kiss The Stars has the same sensibility as her Bleeding Stars: a hero or heroine finding redemption in the love of their soulmate. This reads as an extension of that series, offering us more connection to their world. It reminds us why we loved their stories as the heroes and heroines fight to overcome life’s challenges to find their happy ending. Kiss The Stars offers all of the best parts of Jackson. So…why should you read it?

  1. There is a lyricism to this book. When I first read the books from the Bleeding Stars, each book read, to a certain degree, like a songbook of sorts. Her prose reads like song lyrics. Jackson is the queen of well-placed fragments that create a cadence to her words that feel like the poetry of a song. If it isn’t intentional that her stories for rock stars would offer this lyricism, then she easily intuits the presence of these characters through her words. 
  2. The characters of Mia and Leif are crafted in a way that creates an emotional connection from its start. These two are different sides of the same coin of tragedy. While their tragedies are very different, they are both struggling with living an abundant life. In meeting each other, they find life again. Jackson builds their relationship beautifully on the page, capturing them between equal parts of deflection, connection, and attraction. From one moment to the next, Jackson holds her readers captive to an emotional spectrum of frustration, tears, and happiness. Everything is here in this story, meaning this story is for everyone. 

As she has shown us in the past, A.L. Jackson is a consummate storyteller. She stamps her books with her own style, punctuated with well-placed fragments and metaphors. In Kiss The Stars, readers will find the tale of Mia and Leif, two people destined for each other yet with the potential temporality of a falling star. Thankfully, the endearing love of these two is a reminder that love will always conquer the sins of our past, even when we believe ourselves unworthy of that love. If you missed those broken heroes from Sunder, then Kiss The Stars should be at the top of your Kindle library or e-book. 

In love and romance, 

Professor A
