#MBreview “Kingdom” by A.M. Johnson

Kingdom (Avenues Ink Series #2) by A.M. Johnson

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: Mary Ruth – The Reading Ruth

Cover Model: Steve Gehrke

Release Date: May 25, 2017


 My musings…

4 Fairy-tale CROWNS

As with all of A.M. Johnson’s novels. Kingdom is beautifully written story that intertwines the past, the present, and a fairy-tale that connects Liam and Kelly from the time they are young.  The artistry behind this story, and all of her stories, is what keeps me coming back as a reader.

Liam is a very serious man, forced into growing up much sooner than he should have in order to take care of his family.  As a result, he is forced to put his dreams on hold, and he loses at least a part of his happily-ever-after.  This loss has left him emotionally detached from any romantic relationship, only pursuing physical gratification.  Once he comes back into contact with Kelly, readers get to see a different side to this emotionally closed off man. They get to see the fire burning inside of him, and he really develops as a character once he gets his Princess back.  Kelly, like Liam, has also come from a bad home, and from the time she was little, she longed to flee her cage.  Even when she is given her freedom, she isn’t really and slowly begins to wither in a different cage.  In order to save herself, she runs from the only man she has loved, and while she has found success, her life is shallow, all glitter on the outside and devoid of anything real on the inside.  Also like Liam, when she returns to her home, the two of them find everything they were looking for, and the King and Queen take their place within their Kingdom, finding a world filled with happiness, love, and fulfillment, finally beating their demons.

This story is told through three different avenues.  There are chapters written in the past, written in the present, and written in relation to the fairy tale.  Each part of the story fills in the holes of the story, giving the reader a complete tale of loss and love.  Like most A.M. Johnson stories, though, this is more than a romantic love story.  It is one that focuses on finding happiness and fulfillment for yourself, about losing people who you love, and about family support and belief.  Only once these characters have found all three do they get their fairy-tale ending.

A.M. Johnson continues to write fantastic stories. As always, I am blown away at her talent, the way she develops complex and broken characters, and intricate plot lines, and I have no idea the final brother’s book will be just as phenomenal.

#BlogTour “Stand” by A.L. Jackson

STAND is now live!

A Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel

Don’t miss out on the unforgettable romance readers are raving about!


 My musings…

5 Starshine Crowns

A.L. Jackson has one again delivered a story that hits all the emotions. It is heart-wrenching and suspenseful, and yet it is also a story of the healing powers of real and familial love, creating the perfect conclusion for my favorite rock-star romance series to date.

Zee has been the quiet drummer of Sunder for the majority of series. Always content to be in the background , he has been the silent supporter of all of the men. In Stand, though, readers get to see what truly motivates him, what weighs him down, and what he pays penance for, and it will break readers’ hearts. It is the perfect example of how one mistake can send a person’s life off-track, but what readers will also see is that this man has paid his dues and he needs to start living his life for him because he deserves so much goodness in his life, which he finds in Alexis. Alexis is currently in a similar situation to Zee. While she struggles to save her sister, she yearns for safety and love, to take an adventure and a chance with the man who rescued her. Readers will love her heart and her unwillingness to give up on her sister, and it is her dedication to those she loves that makes her perfect for Zee. These two both bring each other peace and love within a world of turmoil and pain, and readers love them both so they feel it all, every beautiful and heart-breaking moment.

This story will suck readers from the very first word. A.L. Jackson has this way of leaving enough breadcrumbs to the Zee’s secret to keep readers engaged and guessing about the reveal without making the plot stagnant. On top of the perfectly paced suspense, she really brings the series full circle with the connection and explanation of Mark and his involvement with the band. As if it couldn’t get better, the chemistry and romance between Zee and Alexis is expertly intertwined with the past and the suspense of the present to create a novel readers won’t be able to put down. What will make lovers of the series so happy is the way she leaves the band. The men of Sunder and their ladies are special and their stories are brilliant, and A.L. Jackson gives them all the ending that is so worthy of the series, the beloved characters, and the many Sunder fans.

Stand by A.L. Jackson is complete perfection from cover to cover. It is everything readers could have ever asked for as the conclusion of this phenomenal series, and, although it is always so sad to say goodbye to well loved characters, this send off is everything they deserved!

No fear. Just life.

The boy next door. That’s what he was. Dash Frasier–my hero from the day we met, when I was six and he was nine. His sister was my best friend, the three of us one happy crew. Then one sweaty summer night changed everything.

No one understood me like Dash. No one made me feel so loved. That’s why, when he skipped town, it wrecked me.

Now I’m older. Wiser. I’ve just snagged my dream job, writing at a film studio. The lead animator on my project? You guessed it.

#ReleaseBlitz & #MBreview “Grandslam” by Heidi McLaughlin

Add to Goodreads


 My musings…

4 Crowns

Of all the Boys of Summers series, Grand Slam by Heidi McLaughlin is by far my favorite. The drama and angst combined with the likable characters made this one a delightful read.

Travis Kidd, the starting left fielder for the Renegades, has always desired Saylor, but she has kept him at a distance.  Always the jokester and woman-loving player, he wasn’t someone she could risk her future on, but throughout the story, readers get to see the softer more lovable man who really only wants a family and people to love. Saylor is a single mom with a lot on her plate. Readers are going to absolutely respect her desire to provide for her child and sacrifice for her happiness.  Whenever these two are together, they cannot resist their attraction for each other, and readers won’t want them to resist it either.

There is so much going on in this plot. There is the obvious forbidden nature of their relationship with her being a manager and him being a baseball player.  On top of that, they both have legal issues that are plaguing them, setting up yet another obstacle to prevent these two from being together.  Even with the many obstacles between them, these two fight to overcome them.  With the amount of pressure they are under, the conflict explodes in an expected manner, and readers will love Travis’s solution to the issues.

If you are looking for an angsty, drama filled romance, than Grand Slam is what you are looking for.  The plot and characters will keep you hooked through the whole book! Continue Reading

Disgrace: the condition of one fallen from grace.

I rescued her from an attack in the seedy underground of New York City.
The second night…
She told me the first of many lies.

She thinks she can keep me out of her world, but she’s in over her head. Watching her, being near her, it gives breath to something dark inside me. Something primal and forbidden. Forbidden to me.

Because in six months, I’ll be an ordained priest.

And she complicates things.

#BlogTour “Cheater’s Regret” by Rachel Van Dyken

Cheater’s Regret, an all-new sexy standalone from #1 New York Times Bestseller Rachel Van Dyken is available now on Amazon & Free in Kindle Unlimited!!

SBPRBanner-CheatersRegret-BT

Cheater’s Regret by Rachel Van Dyken

Release Date: May 23rd

Genre: Contemporary Romance


My musings…

5 Moon Pie CROWNS

I absolutely adored the second standalone in the Curious Liaisons series. It is light and fun, hilarious and romantic. I devoured every minute of Thatch and Austin’s story.

Thatch and Austin both come from troubled families, which ultimately affects their opinions on themselves as well as love. Thatch, a plastic surgeon, thinks cheating is in his DNA. He is hiding secrets and hurts Austin all to protect her from the secrets that could damage her emotionally. Austin, a grad student and glorified sugar addict, has spent her life as an object to be shown off for the political aspirations of her father, ultimately affecting her self-esteem. Both of these characters long for real love and a real family, and readers get to witness the journey these two take to get there with each other.

Rachel Van Dyken begins Cheater’s Regret with a tumultuous encounter between Thatch and Austin, which makes readers sympathetic to Austin and angry with Thatch.  Through the course of the story, Thatch earns his redemption with the way he loves Austin, and of course, when the big secret is revealed. Readers will love watching these two come back together, because from the beginning it is about love from them. It is about wanting more than lust and physical gratification. These two just enjoy time together, laughing, being together, and having steamy times (of course). The ending, just the like the rest of the book, will have readers laughing with warming hearts.

I adore this series. The humor. The heart. The love. All of it is entertaining and fun. The whole concept of centering it on cheaters is unique, and I love the redemptive side of the whole series. It is a definite must read.

#NewRelease “Sexy Jerk” by Kim Karr

Sexy Jerk - Release


SEXY JERK_AmazonSexy Jerk - about book(1)

My best friend is married.

Everyone I know is married. It doesn’t bother me. I like my life the way it is.

Since I’m single though, when my best friend and her husband finally decide to go on their dream honeymoon, she asks me to watch their three-year-old son.

Of course I say yes.

What my best friend neglects to tell me is that I won’t be babysitting alone.

Feeling Max might be too much for me to handle, her husband asks his only single friend to help.

Nick Carrington and I have met a couple of dozen times. I’ve never really given him a second thought—other than to say he’s kind of a jerk. Out loud. So he can hear. Sure, he’s tall, dark, and handsome. And yes, he has the best ass I’ve ever seen, and I mean ever seen quite literally. You see he mooned me at last year’s Fourth of July barbecue because, like I said, he’s a jerk.

He always has to be the life of the party.

He’s also arrogant.

Imposing.

Rich.

And a playboy.

I’d even go as far as to say he’s a manwhore.

Yet somehow before I know it, this manwhore and I are co-parenting. Living under the same roof. Eating meals together and yes, talking.

Don’t look at me like that—it’s not like I had a choice. Even though I knew every minute would be hell, I had to say yes.

But after two weeks what I didn’t expect is that I’d been wrong about him.

That under his smart-ass exterior, he’s quite charming.

That his arrogance is actually confidence.

And that the sight of his naked body would do really bad things to me.

So yes, I’ve misjudged him. And yes, I like him. Really like him. Although there are times I still think he’s a jerk…I now think he’s a sexy jerk.

And I want more of him.

The question is—does he want more of me?

#CoverReveal “Take Your Time” by Julie Johnson

× SERIESTHE BOSTON LOVE STORIES

× RELEASE DATEJULY 11, 2017

× GENREROMANTIC COMEDY


IMG_0144× BLURB ×

Delilah Sinclair has a certain reputation.

Maybe it’s the way she walks (in skyscraper designer heels) or the way she talks (in total absence of a filter) or simply the shade of her hair (strawberry blonde). Maybe it’s the string of broken hearts she’s left across the city of Boston. (Sorry, boys.)

For Lila, catching a man’s attention is never a struggle. It’s the part that comes later – the happily-ever-after part – that always seems to trip her up. All her friends may be settling down, but this fiery redhead has no intentions of ever being tamed…

Until she meets a man just as wild.

Luca “Blaze” Buchanan is the best fighter to come out of Boston in years. Men want to be him, women want to be with him, and no one smart ever bets against him. He’s more savage than knight-in-shining-armor, but that suits him just fine: he has no plans to ever allow a woman to domesticate him.

That is, until a certain sultry redhead finds herself in need of salvation. In the midst of sudden danger, their slow-burning attraction sparks into something far hotter… an inferno neither of them knows how to put out.

One thing is indisputable: no one is walking away without getting singed…

** TAKE YOUR TIME is a full-length contemporary romance about a girl determined not to settle… and the alpha who tears her careful plans into pieces. It is the fourth installment of the internationally bestselling BOSTON LOVE STORY series and can be read as a complete standalone. Due to sexy scenes, a sassy, red-headed heroine, and a bossy, unbearably sexy hero, it is recommended for readers ages 17 and up. **

#MBreview “Rocked Up” by Karina Halle & Scott Mackenzie

Rocked Up

by Karina Halle & Scott Mackenzie

Cover Designer: By Hang Le

Release Date: April 12th, 2017


My musings…

4 Rocking Crowns

Rocked Up is the first book co-authored for Karina Halle and Scott Mackenzie.  For lovers of the music scene and rock-star world, this book will be enjoyable.

Brad is lead singer of the band And Then and the hero of the book.  Like all musicians, he is excellent at his craft and is courageous, especially when it comes to protecting Lael.  Even with a rough background, Brad has turned into a really honorable and respectable hero.

Lael, the heroine, has always been on the outside of the music industry looking in as a result of her protective father, a music industry mogul. She, however, gets the opportunity of a life-time when she goes on tour  with her favorite musician, Brad. While she has this overprotective father, she doesn’t let him slow her down.  She chases her goals, and she spends a great deal of time earning her spot.

The story starts out with components of insta-love, but she is also a teenager, so who hasn’t had inst-crushes?  When they meet again many years later, the connection is still there for her, and he quickly  follows suit. The authors, however, use a bit of delayed gratification by making them friends before lovers, allowing readers to see them as a couple versus two people chasing physical gratification. The conflict is something readers will see coming, but it is resolved well, leaving the readers with an entertaining experience.

Rocked Up is a fun, light, and generally quick read. The mix of romance and comedic moments makes this one a worthwhile read.

#BlogTour “Nudes” by Sarah Robinson

NUDES: A Hollywood romance standalone from

bestselling author Sarah Robinson!

ONLY $0.99! **limited time**


My musings…

3.5 Scandals Crowns

Sarah Robinson’s novel, while a romance, really hits on some serious issues plaguing women today. While the story is intriguing on its own, the themes that run through the book are worth every single minute spent reading it.

Both of the characters, Ben and Aria are very likable characters. Ben is the perfect gentleman and showers Aria with the love and affection she deserves, and Aria is an independent and talented heroine. While their chemistry is believable and enjoyable to watch, it lacked a certain spark. There is nothing wrong with their character development or choices nor their intimate moments, but it just didn’t connect for me.

The development of this story is filled with insta-lust and well-paced plot. Sarah Robinson places the reader right at the beginning of the scandal, and then jumps back to the exposition of the novel. What is clear pretty quickly is who will be responsible for the released photos, but not a certain characters involvement. Even though the plot development is clear early, what makes this a worthwhile read is the theme she creates. The stand Aria makes against slut-shaming, against verbally attacking each other, and against body shaming is phenomenal. The moment she refuses to succumb to these comments and the pressures of Hollywood is such an inspirational experience, and I love how her friends rallied behind her. This really makes it a worthwhile read.

Nudes is the first book in a new series by Sarah Robinson. It is plotted well with likable characters, and while this one didn’t personally connect with me as a reader, it still is valuable in this social media, comment crazy world we live in, and as she says in the novel, we need to do better!

#ComingSoon “Bitch Slap” by J. Kenner

Title: Bitch Slap

Release Day: June 2

By New York Times Bestselling author J. Kenner


Synopsis:

The first time I met her I wanted to slap her.

The second time, I knew I had to have her.

As for the third time, a gentleman doesn’t tell.

So I guess it’s a good thing I’m no gentleman … right?

Let’s get this out of the way, right off the bat: I love women.

I love the way they look. The way they smell. The way they feel. Especially the way they feel. And I’ve pretty much made it my mission to give each and every woman who shares my bed the ride of her life.

Then I met her. Bitchy as hell and completely uninterested in me. And damned if I didn’t want her. Crave her. I told myself I only wanted to tame her. That it was all about the challenge.

I never expected to break through that ice queen exterior and find the softness underneath. Never expected how wild she’d be between the sheets or the way she’d cry my name with such sincere intensity when I totally rocked her world.

Most of all, I never expected to fall for her.

But I did.

And the question is, now that I know I want her, how the hell do I go about keeping her?

#ExcerptReveal “Salvaged” by Jay Crownover

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover continues her delightfully sexy Saints of Denver series with the next thrilling standalone, SALVAGED! Don’t miss the amazing excerpt below and pre-order your copy today!


Synopsis:

Hudson Wheeler is a nice guy. Everyone knows it, including his fiancée who left him with a canceled wedding and a baby on the way. He’s tired of finishing last and is ready to start living in the moment with nights soaked in whiskey, fast cars, and even faster girls. He’s set to start living on the edge, but when he meets Poppy Cruz, her sad eyes in the most gorgeous face he’s ever seen hook him in right away. Wheeler can see Poppy’s pain and all he wants to do is take care of her and make her smile, whatever it takes.

Poppy can’t remember a time when she didn’t see strangers as the enemy. After a lifetime of being hurt from the men who swore to protect her, Poppy’s determined to keep herself safe by keeping everyone else at arm’s length. Wheeler’s sexy grin and rough hands from hours restoring classic cars shouldn’t captivate her, but every time she’s with him, she can’t help being pulled closer to him. Though she’s terrified to trust again, Poppy soon realizes it might hurt even more to shut Wheeler out—and the intense feelings pulsing through her are making it near impossible to resist him.

The only thing Poppy is sure of is that her heart is in need of some serious repair, and the more time she spends with Wheeler, the more she’s convinced he’s the only man with the tools to fix it.

#ChapterReveal “Roommates with Benefits” by Nicole Williams

Rommates with Benefits

by Nicole Williams

Coming June 5


Soren Decker. He’s the epitome of the “bad boy, good man” persona. The best of both worlds. The worst of them too. He’s the type of guy most girls would not mind sharing a confined space with, except my new roommate isn’t all swagger and chiseled abs.

He’s bossy. Messy. Cocky. Infuriating. Doesn’t believe in personal space. Has no qualms about roaming the apartment with a loincloth-sized towel cinched around his waist. Seems under the delusion he’s my personal protector (refer back to infuriating). He plays college baseball and holds down a part-time job—I don’t know where he finds the time to get on my nerves.

We’re got nothing in common . . . except for one thing. Our attraction to one another. And in six hundred square feet of shared space, the tension only has so much room to grow before one of us gives in to temptation. But really, what chance do a couple of young kids chasing their dreams in the big city have of making it?

Since Soren claims I know squat about sports (he might have a semi-point), here’s a stat for him—one in a million. That’s our odds.

#ReleaseBoost “The Rebellion” by S.L. Scott

Title: The Rebellion

Series: Hard to Resist #5

Author: S.L. Scott

Genre: STANDALONE Contemporary Romance

Release Date: May 11, 2017 


Synopsis:

I met my muse at fifteen. I’d just gotten busted for smoking behind the school gymnasium. She inspired me with her laugh and nonjudgmental attitude and, before I knew it, we were inseparable. Then I left to pursue my rock star dreams—dreams she encouraged.

I got over Jaymes Grenier no problem. I never think about that little bow at the top of her pink lips, or the way her green eyes admired mine. Nope, I barely recall the way she fit so perfectly in my arms when I held her at night. The sweet way she would whisper she loved me has long faded from memory.

These are the lies I regularly tell myself in hopes of believing them one day. Yeah, I was told I’d get over my first love.

I didn’t. 

Derrick Masters marked me the moment we met back in ninth grade. He called me over—all bravado and bad boy mystery wrapped in a James Dean-esque package. Dark hair and blue eyes with a rebel without a cause charisma. He was everything I was warned about, but I couldn’t resist. I was his from that moment on.

His career took off almost as soon as he did. I knew it would. I just thought I would be beside him as his partner in crime, best friend, and lover. That’s what we had always been … before he left me behind to fend for myself.

Fend? Fight is more like it.

I’ve been fighting ever since.

Fighting for survival.

Fighting for a better life in a world determined to keep me down.

I don’t have the luxury of letting my head live in the lure of La La Land. His dreams may have come true, but mine were extinguished. These days I fight for something bigger than me, bigger than we were ever meant to be.

When his dreams come crashing back into my reality, is this a second chance at that fairy tale ending or another heartbreak in the making?
