Synopsis:

Camilla Collins hasn’t gone home in thirteen years. As much as she loves her family, their tiny hometown in the folds of the Colorado mountains holds too many memories. Memories of a life barely lived and a love barely realized. No matter how she thrives, AJ Jenkins is the man she compares all others too. He just so happens to be the one that broke her heart. Seeing him, seeing the life she might have had with him, has been a very convincing reason to celebrate the holidays in the Pacific Northwest, happy in the rain instead of the snow.

AJ Jenkins isn’t exactly bitter and frigid. It’s the below freezing temperatures, the knee deep snow, and the death of his chronically ill father dragging him down. That is until Cam Collins finally comes home for Christmas. After thirteen years, he’d almost given up on seeing her. And was incredibly happy about it. But thirteen is unlucky for a reason, and apparently that reason is still a klutzy, gorgeous, living memory determined to poke holes in his barely hanging on heart with death defying stilettos.

#BlogTour “No Reservations” by Kristen Proby

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby, comes a sexy, new contemporary romance novella in her Fusion Series, NO RESERVATIONS, brought to you by 1001 Dark Nights! Grab your copy of this amazing novella today!


My musings…

4 HOT Crowns

Focusing on two secondary characters, from the series Kristen Proby gives readers a quick a dirty peek into the Fusion series world.

While Kristen Proby eventually develops the hero and heroine of No Reservations, for a good portion of the novel Chase and Maura are very two dimensional characters. When readers first meet them, there is a previously established antagonistic relationship, and both are emotionally closed off from relationships. Most of their relationship is based on the physical interactions between them. There is the eventual progression and openness required not only to allow readers to get to know the characters but also to establish that there is more to them as a couple than their chemistry in the bedroom.

As with most novellas, the plot and pacing is quick. Kristen Proby does a good job with establishing their relationship with a legitimate conflict and resolution. Their hang-ups are believable, the effect on their relationship authentic, an the reconciliation is rewarding. If the characters would have been developed at a faster rate, readers would connect with them faster, making the whole story that much better.

Fans of the Fusion series will enjoy this quick and steamy novella. They get to see one of their favorite couples from the series, and they get to witness a much steamier side to the series. It definitely left me excited to return to this world again with the final book in series to come.

#BlogTour “The One Night Stand” by Elizabeth Hayley

TONS availnow

THE ONE NIGHT STAND

By Elizabeth Hayley

Standalone

Release Day – Dec 12. 2017


Synposis:

Gabriel Torres thought his life after Major League Baseball would be simple and quiet, or at least quieter. However, as he takes over running the exclusive Players Club, he finds himself continually embroiled in scandal and drama. Surely nothing, and no one could make his life any crazier…Right?

Rachel Adler is a blast from Gabe’s past who crashed back into his life with the finesse of a freight train. But she’s a welcome distraction. At least for a night.

Rachel has been working hard to become one of the top sports journalists in the country. She doesn’t have time for a long-term romance or irresistibly charming baseball players. A one-night-stand with the man who she knew would hit it out of the park was all she wanted.

But when she gets a tip that Gabe could have ties to one of the biggest sports stories in history, a story that could make her career, Rachel decides that maybe she has a little time for the sexy baseball player after all. As she gets in deeper with both her story and Gabe, Rachel begins to question who she is, what she wants, and what exactly she’s willing to sacrifice for her career.

Will the potential grand-slam romance be stopped short or will Rachel and Gabe be able to go the distance?

#ReleaseBlitz “Thresholds” by Kate Canterbary

Snowy days, steamy nights.
The Walshes are home for the holidays.

Thresholds Banner_RDB

Title: Thresholds
Series: The Walsh Series #8

Author: Kate Canterbary
Release Date: December 14, 2017


Thresolds

Blurb

‘Twas the weekend before Christmas, when all through the North End
Not a Walsh had his life together, not even his friends;

The parties were planned by the foodies with care,
In hopes that Wes and Erin would soon find their way there;

The men were stressing over last minute shopping lists and plans,
While the ladies were busy with work and nesting and finding the right paella pans;

When out in the dining room there arose such a clatter,
The Halsted dogs sprang from their beds to see what was the matter;

They whistled and shouted and called each other names,
While the secrets and announcements and surprises quickly came;

So onto another adventure they flew
With the sleigh full of Walshes, and the Commodore too—

As they continued arguing and clamoring around,
Down the road an unexpected visitor came with a bound;

But it wasn’t long until couples were all nestled snug in their beds,
With new memories of steamy holiday nights dancing in their heads.

#ReleaseBlitz “Of Smoke & Cinnamon” by Ace Gray

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Of Smoke & Cinnamon: A Christmas Story
Author: Ace Gray
Genre: Holiday Second Chance Romance
Release Date: December 13, 2017


My musings…

5 Penguin CROWNS

Of Smoke and Cinnamon has been my introduction to the world of Ace Gray, and if any of her other books are even remotely as good as this second chance, Christmas romance then this author has a new insta-fan.  Each page is filled with angsty goodness that tore at my heart.

Camilla and AJ are fantastic characters. The author does a fantastic job establishing them as characters, delicately balancing memories of the past with the present. The reason for the breakup and the broken hearts they endured and continue to harbor all cause the reader to feel incredibly sympathetic for these characters.  I felt my heart break right along with them.  Plus, the author made the demise of their past relationship believable and gut-wrenching, while also not laying blame at any one character’s feet, keeping in tact are loyalty to both the hero and the heroine.

Of Smoke and Cinnamon is an beautifully developed second chance romance.  From the very beginning, readers connect with the heroine who is returning  to her hometown, and we connect with the hero who remained behind, attempting to make a life for himself.  As the story progresses, the revelation of what ended them not only serves as an impetus for these two to reconnect but also works to set up the conflict of the story.  The inevitable conflict weaves each present moment together with dashes of sadness. Ace Gray’s writing and development of these characters and plot makes readers feel it all, and even though we know what is coming it doesn’t stop us from wishing for their moments together.  The inevitable hope that seeps into our minds that this time they can get it right and heartbreak the occurs when it all falls apart just shows how wonderful this writer is at putting us in the moment with Camilla and AJ. Ace Gray ends the story with perfect Christmas surprise, so romance readers be prepared for a resolution that will have you smiling as it is the perfect moment for the clumsy Camilla and the man who always seems to save her from harm.

I love second chance romances, Christmas stories, and angst, and Ace Gray has combined three attributes of romance that I love into one phenomenal story. It is the perfect book to curl up by the tree or in front of the fire and make you believe in fated love all over again.

#ReleaseBlitz “The V Card” by Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente

Now available on all retailers! Get your copy delivered now!


 My musings…

5 Whoopie Pie CROWNS

Lauren Blakely never EVER disappoints me. Her stories are always sexy, fun, and so swoonworthy, and the addition of Lili Valente only upped the ante.  The V Card is literally everything I love and want from a romantic comedy.

As always, the men in their romantic comedies are to die for, and Graham is another hero in a long line of men I wish would come out of the pages and into my bedroom. He is the protective best friend, the sexy business man, and the man who teaches and romances the heroine.  With every chapter in his point-of-view, with every word he said, and every action he took, I found myself falling more in love with this man. Readers are romanced right along with CJ, and they, along with her, will be unable to resist his charm. I know I couldn’t.

CJ is one of my favorite heroines from these authors, and not because she is this fierce, take control type of female. I love her because I saw myself in her. I saw the bookworm, the shy woman who craves something more but who isn’t afraid to ask for it, and the woman who just wants to find love and happiness.  I would suspect that many readers will see themselves in her, which is rare in the romance world.  This woman came into her own through her interactions with Graham, and she, by the end of the story, is willing to put herself on the line for her heart, which only serves to make me more infatuated with her as a character.

The V Card is absolutely perfect with its pacing and development of characters. These authors allow the readers to know these two as a couple while CJ learns her lessons from Graham.  We get all the sexy times we could want with the different lessons planned between the two, but the authors also give readers so many moments where they connect emotionally, allowing us to invest in them as a real couple versus two people involved in a sexual deal that lasts for seven days. Because they are able to authentically develop their relationship, the inevitable conflict is heartbreaking.  I wanted to console CJ and hug Graham, as their emotions are palpable. The falling action and resulting resolution, as with any romantic comedies from these two ladies, had me smiling from ear to ear.

Sexy. Sweet. Hilarious. The V Card is total romantic comedy perfection. This new powerhouse duo absolutely delivers, and it is the perfect way to end 2017!

Love So Wild by Marquita Valentine
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publishing Date: December 13th, 2017


LoveSoWild_Cover (1)

Synopsis:

Pilot Elijah Lawson always knew he’d return to Jessamine, marry a hometown girl and settle into very predictable life. After all, he made promises to his parents that once he’d gotten his fill of adventure that he would do exactly that… and Eli was a man of his word. Only he’s never been able to get the bewitching redhead he’d fallen hard for two years earlier out of his head and he’s afraid that no woman in Jessamine will ever measure up.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop his family from trying to set him up with every single woman in town… until Skye Holland shows up on his doorstep.

The only reason Skye Holland moved back to North Carolina was so she could do the right thing for her one year old son. A boy, after all, needed his father, while she… she simply needed a fresh start. But first, she has to let Eli know that their red-hot affair had consequences. Consequences she has no intentions of repeating, no matter how many old feelings come rushing to the surface when they’re together.

Too bad for Skye that Elijah has other ideas and he’s not going to let this second chance at love get away again.

Synopsis:

What if Alice didn’t fall down the rabbit hole, but instead, traveled through
Lincoln Tunnel into another kind of Wonderland:

She’s New York City’s latest addition and she’s going to work her ass off proving she earned her spot in the country’s top grad program.
Never again will she let some jerk derail her future and break her heart. Oh, and no more players. She’s D.O.N.E with the ‘cool guys’.
Getting caught up in Dare Grangeworth, the art world’s resident bad boy, was not part of her Alice 2.0 plan, even if he is just her type, with his beard, tats sleeves and intense green eyes. When he’s not dodging the press or his cultish fan base, Dare’s making art that makes a statement. Women seem to lose their heads around him – all the more reason why he finds Alice’s candor refreshing. He’s used to women giving in – not giving attitude.
He has to get to know this girl, even if it means allowing himself to be the subject of her research. Before too long, he becomes more than a simple outlier she can explain away. And for him everything starts to feel larger than life and upside down, like a heady rush, all while desperately trying not to lose his heart.
Become lost and found in this re-imagined story of Alice and her cast of characters, in a world where Wonderland meets Sex-and-the-City.

#ReleaseBlitz “Miss Mechanic” by Emma Hart

MISS MECHANIC

By Emma Hart

Release Day: Dec 12, 2017


My musings…

4 TACO CROWNS

Miss Mechanic is full of all the hate/love shenanigans one could want. From the very beginning, their dislike for one another creates the chemistry between Jamie and Dex until it evolves into much more, making their journey entertaining and fun.

Dex is a chauvinist, a complete pig when it comes to female mechanics. Surprisngly, though, I still really like him. His banter with Jamie and seeing him interact with his family makes him much more enjoyable. He also changes and evolves as he gets to know Jamie better and work with her in the garage. His ability to change and grow throughout the story makes his initial behavior forgivable and makes him a hero to swoon over.

Jamie is a spitfire. From the very moment readers meet her, she verbally spars with everyone, particularly Dex. She is the epitome of an independent and strong woman, and I enjoyed seeing her character interact with the other characters. Even though she is her own woman, readers also get to see this vulnerable and awkward side to her character, making her relatable. Unlike Dex, though, she doesn’t go through a significant change over the course of the novel.

This story centers around the antagonism and hatred between the hero and heroine. It is what gets them to interact in a daily basis, it becomes the foundation for their chemistry, and it is the impetus that pushes them into more than disdain for one another. And while the chemistry between them is AMAZING and hate banter is entertaining, there is a lack of significant conflict. While this didn’t necessarily detract from the enjoyment of the story, there was no obstacle or significant issue to overcome.

If you are looking for a light and fun romantics hate to love comedy, Miss Mechanic is perfect for you. It is low angst and high entertainment.

#MBreview “Sleighed It” by Max Monroe

Sleighed It: A Billionaire Bad Boys Holiday Novella

Series: Billionaire Bad Boys #3.7

Author: Max Monroe


My musings…

5 NEUROTIC CROWNS

Sleighed It is exactly what a Christmas novella should be with the signature Max Monroe humor. It had me laughing at Georgia’s craziness and swooning over the perfection that is Kline while also leaving me with that warm holiday feeling. It is Christmas perfection.

Who doesn’t want to have the perfect Christmas? As parents, we want to get the best presents, to create memories that will turn into traditions, and to share it with the people we love. So while, Georgie’s quest to achieve the picturesque Christmas is insane at times, as a mom, I got it. What I love, though, and what the authors remind readers of through this character is what really matters when it comes to the holidays, and that the craziness and insanity of the holidays, perfect or imperfect, is what makes the memories and traditions that the kids will recall for years to come, and I absolutely relish the theme.

Kline is still freaking perfect. Max Monroe broke the mold with this man. Everything from the way he loves his daughters and his wife to the way he supports her is everything women want in a husband. His role in this novel, as a voice of reason, will absolutely make readers love him more. He is the clarity Georgia needs with a large dose of sexy. After this book, I may be revising my list to have Kline under my tree (sorry Thatch!).

This novella is like the perfect Christmas drink (white peppermint hot chocolate for me). It filled me with cheer, warmed my heart, and reminded me what really matters when it comes to Christmas, all the crazy people who drive you crazy but you love anyway. This is what matters!

#ReleaseBlitz “Torrid Little Affair” by Kendall Ryan

TORRID LITTLE AFFAIR

Forbidden Desires Book 3

Standalone

By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: December 11


My musings…

4.5 Little Dove CROWNS

Is it possible to love three brothers? Heck yes! Kendall Ryan has already made me fall head over heels with the domineering and often abrasive Gavin during the previous Forbidden Desire duet, and with Torrid Little Affair, my heart was been seduced by the charm and heart of Cooper.

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Cooper’s story, as my heart absolutely broke for him and the outcome of his part in the previous two books in the series. He was so sweet and supportive that I wanted, no needed, to see this man find someone who loves him, who makes him feel like he matters, and who chooses him over all others. His charm and supportive persona only continues in Torrid Little Affair, and unlike his brother who seduces with his dominate personality, Cooper woos readers and the heroine with his compassion and selflessness. I absolutely love every single aspect of his character, which had me empathizing with him the whole way through the book, making me heart feel the full gamut of emotions.

Corinne is hesitant and unsure of many things in her life, and the reader is left wondering why this woman is shy in the bedroom, while really desiring the ability to embrace her sexuality. There is a secret behind her behavior, her shame, and her hesitancy when it comes to Cooper, which isn’t revealed until much later in the book. Her secret is one that slowly becomes clear, but the author keeps the secret, only revealing it closer to the very end. The revelation is painful, her behavior is understandable, and the readers are left reeling just like the characters. At the end, Corinne becomes a heroine who readers can respect, even if they are frustrated with her choices.

This story, while in the Forbidden Desire series, has a very different tone than the first two books, which focuses on Gavin and Emma. It starts out HOT, but Kendall Ryan quickly slows down the insta-lust to focus on developing Cooper and Corinne as a couple. Watching these two get to know one another, fall for each other, and tackle the ups and downs of life allows readers to be swept up in the romance, making their downs hurt and their ups rewarding.

For very different reasons, I love these brothers, and I have no doubt that Kendall Ryan will be successful in making me fall in love with the oldest brother Gavin when his book releases in the new year. I certainly am looking forward to it.

#NewRelease “Man Hands” by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby

Man Hands by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

Series: Man Hands Book 1

Release Date: December 11, 2017


Man Hands by [Bowen, Sarina, Eby, Tanya] Synopsis:

He puts the “screw” in screwball comedy…

BRYNN
At thirty-four, I’m reeling from a divorce. I don’t want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn’s Dips and Balls.
But my friends aren’t having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I’m still taking a hard pass.
Free designer cocktails, they say. And that’s a game-changer.
Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That’s when I lose my mind. But when my besties dare me to leap on the first single man I see, they don’t expect me to actually go through with it.

TOM
All I need right now is some peace and quiet while my home renovation TV show is on hiatus. But when a curvy woman in a red wrap dress charges me like she’s a gymnast about to mount my high bar, all I can do is brace myself and catch her. What follows is the hottest experience of my adult life.
I want a repeat, but my flying Cinderella disappears immediately afterward. She doesn’t leave a glass slipper, either—just a pair of panties with chocolate bunnies printed on them.
But I will find her.

My musings…

I absolutely loved the first two books in the series, and by the end of the book two, I felt absolutely awful for Cooper. He was so sweet and amazing in the first set of books, and, although I didn’t want the heroine with him, I absolutely want him to have his HEA. I can’t to see him get it as well as see the journey Kendall Ryan takes him on to get there.

Full review to come tomorrow!

Synopsis:

The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.
