Title:
 Face Offs & Cheap Shots (CU Hockey #2)
Author: Eden Finley, Saxon James
Expected Publication: October 5th 2020
Genres: M M Romance

JACOBS

For the last three years, I’ve lived and breathed hockey with one goal: team captain.
There’s only one thing standing in my way. TJ Beckett.
Beck is irresponsible and immature, and I’ve hated him since the moment we met freshman year.
Yet, the coaches see something in him I obviously can’t, and they refuse to choose between us. The captain spot is going to a team vote, and the team thinks that what we need are a bunch of challenges to prove our worth. Challenges that have nothing to do with hockey. Challenges that are throwing me and Beck together.
And he’s still as infuriating as ever.


BECK

I have no idea why Christopher Jacobs hates me, and I can’t say I care. I like pushing his buttons, but the guy needs to loosen up. I’m going to win these stupid challenges easily and spend my senior year as hockey king on this campus. Tormenting Jacobs at the same time will just be a bonus.
Even if I’m getting confusing feelings toward him, I won’t let it hold me back.
When it comes to competing, I’m all in, and nothing will get between me and the W.

Title:
 The Sex Coach
Author: Garrett Leigh
Expected Publication: October 1st 2020
Genres: M M Romance

The teacher and the student. The stable hand and the single dad. First times and friendship turn to love.

Toby
There’s nothing attractive about a twenty-four year old virgin, especially not one who blushes every time a hot dude looks his way. But I can’t help the heat that ripples through me every time I see Cole Maguire. And the clench of my heart when I realise how unhappy he is. He’s a city boy with a baby on his hip—we have nothing in common—but if he can teach me how to own my sexuality, perhaps I can teach him he’s worth loving.

Cole
I don’t like horses. But I love my daughter, and there’s nothing I won’t do for her, including leaving the city for life on a farm. I’m ready for that, but I’m not ready for blushing stable hands who make my heart race and my blood run hot. Toby has no idea how beautiful he is. I can teach him that, if he can handle the heat, but after one night with him…damn.

Maybe it’s me that has a lot to learn.

Getting even wasn’t supposed to mean falling in love.

Nothing has gone right for Arnie since he was seventeen when he and Tobias Barrington had an encounter of the physical kind. Tobias, wealthy, handsome, and unobtainable, hasn’t spoken to Arnie since.

That’s all changing and when the dust has settled Arnie’s life will take a turn for the better, right?

Even the best laid plans have a way of going awry; Arnie’s in for the surprise of his life.

Shon's September2020 TBR


Hello friends and fellow book lovers!  Can you believe it's September already?  We only have FOUR more months left in 2020!  This month I'm going to try something different.  Eighteen out of the twenty books I read last month where romance.  I'm going to push the pause on romance this month.  So with that said I'm going to try to read some Fantasy.  Wish me luck!  I’m sure I’m stray from this list because I always do but I love making TBR’s all the same.  Here is what I’d like to read:

Traitor's Blade (Greatcoats #1) by Sebastien de Castell

Skyward (Skyward #1) by Brandon Sanderson
The Black Prism (Lightbringer #1) by Brent Weeks

So in case you didn't notice, I have a pretty massive TBR this month.  I have no idea if I will be able to keep up or not.  I am going to try to get in as many as I can!

Do you guys have any of these on your September TBR?  If you have read any of these what did you think? Are you participating in any challenges this month?  Let me know what your TBR looks like for this month.

xoxo,
Shon
