Dax (Bad Boys of Willow Valley) - Shannyn Leah - Blog Tour and Review







Title: Dax (Bad Boys of Willow Valley)
Author: Shannyn Leah
Genre: Contemporary Small Town Romance




Dax is the first book in Willow Valley’s Bad Boy stand-alone series. These hot contemporary romance books feature alpha males heroes and strong, independent women.

Fall in love with Dax Coyln, a volunteer firefighter and hard ass mechanic for his restoration business. He’s strong, solid, independent, until tragedy strikes that could tear him to the ground.

It’s hard to resist a Good Man who’s a Bad Boy

Dax Colyn is one of the bad boys of Willow Valley. A fearless volunteer firefighter and hard ass mechanic, he makes all the woman swoon and he likes it that way. He keeps people at a distance since his mother died. He doesn’t want to let anyone in, much less a woman he knows he could fall in love with
Ava Anderson keeps people away, too. Haunted by her tortured past and constantly fearful of the future, it’s only her daughter Olivia and Dax’s dad Rowdy that she’s let in.
But when tragedy strikes, it pushes Dax and Ava together, forcing them both to let go of their fears. They soon learn how hard it is to keep pretending and how easy it is to let others in. Especially when those people are family.

“Dax?” She’d moved directly beside him and he felt her warmth radiate near his arm. “Rowdy says you haven’t gone back to the hospital for a follow up on your shoulder.”
She set the princess-patterned bag on his desk before he could reply, not that he needed to answer her. They both knew he hadn’t gone back to see the doctor. He hated hospitals.
A couple weeks back on their way back to the station after dousing a farm fire, the new guy had driven off the road and flipped the fire truck on its side, sending all five of the men to the hospital. Had the ambulance driver not given him a choice, he wouldn’t have gone in the first place.
Big deal. Firefighters got muscle sprains all the time. Although his shoulder was being a pain and not healing. He should have gone for the follow up, but he could scrounge up a thousand excuses to hold it off, too.
Ava unzipped Olivia’s knapsack and pulled out a container of gel. “Let me see your shoulder.” Her teacher’s tone again. Damn woman.
“Ava—”
“I didn’t ask. Take off your shirt, Dax.”
He leaned back in his chair to get a better look at her. He put on his famously seductive grin and tapered his eyes. “I’ve been trying to get you out of your shirt for years and you think you can come into my office and, after one demand, think I’m going to just strip for you? Do you think I’m that easy?”
Her lips curved upwards. “You are that easy.”
“Take yours off,” he retorted.
Her jaw tightened, as did the grip on the jar in her hands. Humor swept away, her eyes didn’t waver from his, and he watched desire heat up in them. The attraction between them resonated around the four walls of his office and he knew sex with her would be mind-blowing. Except, he’d never sleep with her. He couldn’t. As much as he teased and flirted, at the end of the day, they didn’t mix. Hot and cold. Water and fire. Besides, his dad would whoop him good and serve him up for dinner if it ever went that far.
Ava’s fingers grasped the edge of her blue and white plaid blouse and hiked the material high enough to see her naval.
Goddamit. They were in his office and the wall overlooking the shop was encased with windows.
He caught her wrist, conflicted with wanting more, all of her and not wanting any of her at all.
“Alright,” he growled, pulling her shirt back down over her denim shorts.
He stood up, ignoring what looked a hell of a lot like hurt in her eyes and yanked his own black T-shirt over his head. He balled it up, frustration invading his hands and tossed it onto his desk.
“If I’d known it was that easy to get your shirt off, I would have flashed my sprained shoulder a helluva long time ago.”
One thing was for certain, the teasing had to end. She’d never given an inch and today she’d have given a whole damn foot.







4 Stars

Dax is the first title in the Bad Boys of Willow Valley, and my first time reading anything written by Shannyn Leah. 

Shannyn Leah has created characters that are complex, and flawed.  Dax is a grouchy, brooding, alpha bad-boy.  He's a womanizer who enjoys life, but doesn't commit to anyone, due to a fear of losing someone he loves.  Underneath the external bravado is a good guy, with a heart of gold. 

Ava is a strong, independant single parent to her young daughter Olivia.   She puts her daughters needs before her own, going so far as only dating reliable, dependable and boring men, in an attempt to atone for her choices in the past and to protect her daughter from harm. 

Dax and Ava are friends, connected by their mutual love and respect of Rowdy, Dax's father who became a surrogate father and grandfather to Ava and Olivia upon the death of her family.  They share a mutual attraction, and when tragedy strikes the pair become closer than ever.   

Dax is a story at times that is quite heartbreaking, and it's packed full of emotion.  It's a story of loss, love, healing, and new beginnings.  I will look forward to more of Shannyn Leah's work in the future.

Lakeshore Lyrics (Avery)


Contemporary romance author Shannyn Leah loves olives, lip gloss and reading (and writing) romance novels. Her love of words started at an early age and soon grew until, during her teenage years, she’d started writing her own novels. When her mom pushed to finally publish some of the stories, she quickly amassed two complete romance series (By The Lake and Caliendo Resort series) and, in 2016, released her first Fantasy Romance entitled The Gatekeepers (Part One of the Winters Rising series).
When she's not writing contemporary romance books into the early hours of the morning, Shannyn can be found antiquing with her two favorite people, her momma and sister, in their picturesque London, Ontario hometown.

Shannyn would love to get to know her readers as you get to know her (just don’t send her any carrots!)

This tight end is at the top of his game.
He’s good with his hands, even better with his sexy mouth, and the best at making me forget my own name. His—ahem—stats are perfect.

But I can’t fall for him.

He might be everything I want, all rolled into a glorious package of gridiron god, but there’s one teeny-tiny problem. The vile, loathsome team I’ve spent my entire life hating—my beloved school’s arch-rival?

This guy is their star player.

4.5 Stars 

The Rivlary is a fun, sexy, passionate, and above all engaging sports romance with a unique and original plot. 

From the moment I picked up this title, I didn't want to put it down.  I was captivated by Kayla's opinionated, sassy, stubborn, borderline obsessive and kinda crazy personality.  Whilst on the other hand I found Jay to be incredibly sweet, charming, determined and persistent in going after his goals. 

The chemistry between Kayla and Jay is intense and undeniable, and the sexual tension just oozes off the page.  Their banter is fun, witty, flirtatious, and argumentative with moments that are full of heat, heart and humor.  Their interactions had a natural and believable quality and I loved that their story was told in a dual point of view. 

Although The Rivalry does have an angsty plot, its well balanced with light hearted moments full of humor that had me laughing out loud. 

I adored this title and cannot recommend it enough to anyone who enjoys a sports romance, or young adult collage romance.

Skylar - Addison Jane - Release Blitz & Review






Title: Skylar
Series: The Club Girl Diaries #7
Author: Addison Jane
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: November 21, 2017




Skylar thought she’d outrun her past six years ago.

Growing up, her life was dictated for her and reinforced with a heavy fist. The people who were meant to love and protect her were those that caused her the most pain. So she risked everything and ran.

It was the Brothers by Blood MC that gave Skylar the chance to explore her own mind and body, and work toward a future that she had control over.

She swore she’d never fall for a brother, not willing to lose the life she’d built. When she’s paired with Eagle during a club run, Skylar’s determined to pull a smile from the dark and moody brother.

What started out as a playful game, soon ignited into something much deeper than she’d anticipated.

Was she ready to risk everything all over again if he didn’t feel the same?


Eagle didn’t like to stay still for long.


After many years in the army, his luck finally ran out, and he had to watch helplessly while his team was killed. People he’d laughed with, and shared his life with, suddenly gone.
There were moments when the memories became too much, and he was trapped in his own personal hell, but it had become a part of who he was, something he felt was his burden to bear.
He never expected to break down in front of Skylar, to have her see him at his worst.
She didn’t try to fix him. She threw sass, she was sarcastic, and she made those moments when he could breathe again worth fighting through hell for.
But how did you claim a woman who refused to belong to anyone but herself?

Neither of them knew how to tell the other how they felt, but when the past returns with a vengeance, they might just run out of time to find out.

4.5 Stars 

Skylar is the seventh title in the Club Girl Diaries, although it can be read as a standalone. 

Addison Jane has created a pair of characters that are complex, endearing, and well developed.  Both Skylar and Eagle are survivors, who find peace in each other's presence. 

For those familiar with the series, you will recall that Skylar appeared in Wrench.  Skylar embodies the traits that I love to see in a strong female lead character. She's independent, compassionate, kind, caring, thoughtful, sassy and loyal.  I loved that she can still see the humor in life, despite the past she survived and has done her best to escape. 

Eagle is a veteran and an alpha who struggles with his own past, he's a nomad, a loner, private and controlled.  

I loved the fun, flirtatious, witty and snarky banter that this pair shared.  Their connection and chemistry was intense and undeniable and the love scenes full of passion and heat.  

A well written, entertaining and engaging romantic suspense full of intrigue, heat, emotion, drama and action.  I will be eagerly anticipating further titles in this series.





Addison Jane is a born and bred kiwi girl with a passion for romance and writing.

When she gets the chance she enjoys the little things in life such as reading, dancing, music, and Facebook, but her world really revolves around the little girl who calls her Mum. It's an awkward balance between alpha males and Disney princesses but it works.

Growing up on a small farm next to the beach will always make her a country girl at heart. But since moving away to a small town close to the city she's discovered a dangerous love for shopping.

Writing stories has been something that's come naturally since she was young, and with the massive support of her friends and family, she finally decided to step out of her comfort zone and share them with the world. 

She enjoys bringing her books to life with strong female leads, sexy passionate men and a rollercoaster of twists and turns that lead to the happily ever after that her readers desire.
