Synopsis:

The battle was SAVAGE. The king got his queen, but where is my SAVIOR?

When I thought there was no hope, that suffering this lonely life was my destiny, I saw her. The bubblegum pink skirt caught my attention, but her doe eyes captured my heart. That’s the way the world works, right? Beat you down and then give you a glimmer of something else, something that might be real.

With her, I don’t have to hide the demons that haunt me, or to relive my darkest days alone.

With me, she’s free to be whoever she wants to be. She’s amazing.

Together, we’re two people clinging to a ray of sunshine that only the other can see.

I let my guard down. I got too comfortable. I thought the war had been won when, in reality, it had just begun. When old debts accrue, past demons return to collect their dues.

To find the SOLACE these young lovers crave, will they have to sacrifice the one thing they hold most SACRED?

From New York Times bestselling author, S.L. SCOTT, comes a new, emotionally driven, romantic suspense standalone.

My musings…

K. Bromberg has recently become a one-click author for me.  The very first novel I ever read by her was a second chance romance just over a year ago, so I am excited to revisit this trope with three new brothers.  It sounds absolutely amazing.

Full review to come on Wednesday.

Synopsis:

From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them.

“I hate you. I never want to see you again.”

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again.

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past.

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.
What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?
***

I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves.

That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up.

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story.

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

#BlogTour “Drive” by Kate Stewart

We’re celebrating the release of DRIVE by Kate Stewart!

Contemporary Romance
Stand Alone
Designer: Q Designs
Scheduled to release: October 17, 2017

 My musings…

5 11:11 CROWNS

Kate Stewart takes readers on a journey with Drive that will have their emotions swirling, living not only each moment with the characters but also amplifying these feelings with her carefully selected playlist causing readers to connect with this story as their own memories attached to those songs are relived.

Reid is an incredibly complex, broken, and beaten down man. The world has kicked him down at every turn, resulting in a pessimistic attitude, one for which readers cannot blame him for having. Underneath the scowl and the scathing remarks, readers will see a man who wants to believe in something better and clings to this with Stella. He doesn’t shed the hate and the anger, but we see a happier side of him. Seeing these glimpses, only leads to a heart-crushing scene that I knew would come but didn’t know how bad it would hurt. The pain readers feel doesn’t necessarily come from the hurt between the characters but from in the internal struggle from Reid. Like Stella, readers see something in this man and we want for him to see his worth, to see his talent, and to see that he can stand on his own and not get knocked down time and time again.

Nate is another hero who is so honorable and so worthy of love, and everything about him serves as juxtaposition for Reid. Throughout the story, readers get to see his feelings for Stella grow, and they see him and Stella evolve from co-workers, to friends, and then to more. Readers will become enamored with this man who helps Stella through some of her darkest times, heals her, and gets her dreams in motion. They are so incredibly good together, and the love between them, while not as tumultuous as Reid and Stella, is the romance people yearn and hope for in their future.

Stella is fire from the beginning. Passionate about music and what it provides her, she feels and emotes clearly, often stepping over boundaries and crossing into other people’s emotional barriers. She craves chasing down acts and events that scare her, she wants to live life following her dreams, and she yearns to live with passion and love. Although, she is incredibly emotionally, I found myself drawn to her because of her love of music, her unwillingness to give up on the people who she loves, and her dedication to herself and her dreams.

Be prepared for the emotional ride that is Drive. This plot line is not one that generally works for me (personal taste), but Kate Stewart did  it so well that I was enthralled with these characters from the very beginning. She authentically exhibits how someone can love two people, how someone could be happy with two very different people, and how there aren’t always clear cut choices when it comes to the heart. In the romance world, readers often reject this idea and yearn for the soulmate, the clear-cut, no choice who the heroine she be with, but Kate Stewart has spoken to my heart and reached into my mind with this idea of loving two people. She does all of the characters justice, making the decision and the resulting falling action truly  heart-breaking. It is painful and it hurts, but the resolution couldn’t have been more perfect, and it couldn’t have made me love the characters any more than I already did.

Is there a genre of romance that Kate Stewart can’t write? I don’t think so, because I have yet to be find a book that hasn’t wowed me. The comedies, the drama, the angst – she delivers with every single story, and Drive perfectly exemplifies everything I love about reading romance, a blending of life truths and passion (and ,of course, super steamy scenes).

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

Dirty Rich One Night Stand: a sexy standalone novel by [Jones, Lisa Renee]

 Synopsis:

DIRTY, RICH ONE NIGHT STAND.

That’s all it was supposed to be. Her. Him. Pleasure. And then a fast goodbye. He’s a stranger. And yet, he’s not. She knows him even though he doesn’t know her.

He’s the powerful attorney, now world-renowned after coming off the trial of a century which was publicized across the country. And I’m one of the reporters that sat in his courtroom.

I watched him, studied him, got to know him from afar which isn’t hard since I know his exact brand of confidence, arrogance, and wealth.

I know his type. I’ve dated his type. Which is why when I happen to come face to face with him, when sparks fly and heat simmers between us, I know what happens if I say “yes” to Reese Summer.

I know he’ll taste like sin and sex, even before he kisses me.

I know he’ll feel like pleasure and passion, even before he touches me.

I know he’ll demand more than I wants to give, and yet, because I dare to give myself to him, the result will be deliciously hot.

I know that I will not leave his bed without being utterly, completely sated.

And I know that I will leave the next morning anyway.

And so, I do.

And so, he follows.

And as chase begins my question becomes: Is Reese Summer THE one or is he really just a dirty, arrogant lie that should have stayed a one night stand?

#BlogTour “Maverick” by Karina Halle

Maverick, an all-new contemporary STANDALONE

by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is LIVE!!!

SBPRBanner-Maverick-BT.jpgMaverick by Karina Halle
Release Date: October 17th
Genre: Contemporary Romance


My musings…

5 Icy CROWNS

This Nelson brother has completely won over my heart, and the brothers, it is sad to say, have moved the McGregor clan out of my top spot.

Maverick, so far, is my favorite Nelson brother.  I love his charm, his laid-back nature, and his protective instinct. His job at SAR only serves to highlight his best features.  His sense of honor and loyalty, coupled with his need to be a good leader for his team makes him so swoonworthy.  Add to that his dirty mouth and impeccable skills in the bedroom, and I am sold.  Maverick has earned his title of favorite Karina Halle hero.  I adore him.

Riley is another heroine I didn’t really expect.  The opening scene led me to believe that we should get a more broken character, but Karina Halle makes her bold.  Her confidence, her sex appeal, her mouth, and zeal for life are contagious, and I completely enjoyed reading about her.

The chemistry between these two from the very beginning is off the charts, and out of all of her books, their connection, emotionally and physically, is searing.  Every scene is HOOOTTT, so freaking hot. It is probably one of the steamiest books I have read from her, and this is in large part due to the sexual freedom of both Riley and Maverick.

Not only does Karina Halle deliver a super steamy romance with characters to love, but she also delivers a romance that has elements of danger with the occupations of both of the main characters.  The inherent dangers of the job bring a level of fear for the couple as well as puts the reader in heightened state of suspense because we know the dangers of the job will come into play. When it does, the heightened emotions of Riley and Maverick are intense, and the author does a great job making the readers feel the grief and heartbreak of each character.  There might be some who don’t like how the secondary conflict is resolved, but I liked how it exemplified the solidarity of the team, especially after what they all endured together.

Maverick brings it all to the table: super steamy sex, romance, lovable characters, and story filled with anticipation.  I didn’t want the story to end.  I just love them and their story that much. It is definitely another one-click book for this author.

#NewRelease “Bountiful” by Sarina Bowen

Bountiful by Sarina Bowen

True North Series (Book 4)

Coming October 20, 2017


 Synopsis:

No last names. No life stories. Those were the rules.

Once upon a time a cocky, copper-haired tourist sauntered into Zara’s bar. And even though she knew better, Zara indulged in a cure for the small-town blues. It was supposed to be an uncomplicated fling—a few sizzling weeks before he went back to his life, and she moved on.

Until an accidental pregnancy changed her life.

Two years later, she’s made peace with the notion that Dave No-Last-Name will never be found. Until one summer day when he walks into her coffee shop, leveling her with the same hot smile that always renders her defenseless.

Dave Beringer has never forgotten the intense month he spent with prickly Zara. Their nights together were the first true intimacy he’d ever experienced. But the discovery of his child is the shock of a lifetime, and his ugly past puts relationships and family out of reach.

Or does it? Vermont’s countryside has a way of nurturing even tortured souls. The fields and the orchards—and hard won love—are Bountiful.

#CoverReveal “Ripples” by Aleatha Romig

ARE YOU READY FOR MORE TONY RAWLINGS?

RIPPLES IS COMING ON OCTOBER 31!

RIPPLES – A Consequences Novel

By Aleatha Romig

Release Day – Oct 31, 2017

Standalone


Synopsis:

You don’t have to read the Consequences series to enjoy this stand-alone novel, but if you know Tony Rawlings, you know that disappointing him isn’t an option. Imagine being his youngest daughter…imagine telling him the unimaginable…

“Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.”

Sometimes ideas find you, and dreams begin as nightmares. Sometimes the truth that has been kept hidden is the key to opening a door you never knew existed.

“You might not know me. I’m the baby of the Rawlings family, the princess, the daughter who came along later. I’m not like my older siblings, successful at everything they touch. My mother and father have provided me with every luxury as well as their unyielding love and support, but I’m not spoiled. I’m also not content. By example, my parents have shown me how love should be. I don’t know their past, and that doesn’t matter. I know what I’ve seen—two people devoted to one another.

I don’t believe that I’ll ever find that kind of love, the kind that forgives and accepts all. And as my life falls to pieces and I travel to visit my family to face their disappointment, I’m not even looking for it.

I’m looking for an escape…from my life as a Rawlings…from the pressure to achieve and not let others down. I dream of the time I can live for my own desires without the expectations that come with my name.

I don’t find what I’m seeking…it finds me. Or should I say…he finds me.

This time is different. I have a family who will search for me and find the answers. Little do we know—any of us—that my father set my journey into motion long before I was born.”

“Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.” ~Dalai Lama

Ripples (Unabridged Version) is Natalie’s story, the youngest of Tony and Claire’s children—their baby. This story first appeared in shorter form in Glamour: Contemporary Fairytale Retellings. Due to the length restriction of each novella in that anthology, many scenes in Ripples were shortened or omitted for that anthology. This unabridged edition is the entire story—double in length and—a full-length novel.

Please enjoy this Consequences novel along with special appearances from your favorite Consequences characters.

#BlogTour “Ruthless King” by Meghan March

Get ready for the darker and dirtier side of New Orleans with a brand new alpha romance from USA Today bestselling author Meghan March.


My musings…

5 OH MY GOD CROWNS

WHAT THE HECK DID I JUST READ???? Meghan March has seriously upped her alpha romance, sassy heroine, unexpected plot twist game. The end of this story had me staring at my ereader with my mouth gaping, thinking, “wait! What?? What does that mean??” and dying to get my hands on book two, Defiant Queen, in the Mount Trilogy.

Mount, the man no one talks about, the man no one one wants to meet is the anti-hero of my dreams!! The more depraved, the more dangerous the better for me, and Mount fits this to a tee!! It is what makes him alluring and irresistible. This man commands power with no words, his presence alone emits danger, and others sense it and fold to his desires and wishes. How HOT is that?? On top of all of that, this man exudes sex, and there is no question as to what he could do to your body if you let him command it. Of course, we get to see a slightly different version to him when he is alone with Keira, but it is a small change in his behavior. He doesn’t want to force her, he wants her to submit freely and willingly. Yes, he plays with her, arouses her, demands things of her, but he never forces her, and this taps into female desire to be seduced and owned sexually. The moments with Keira and the moments with his minions also serves to show how severe he is in business and how much softer he is with Keria, both sides making him completely and totally captivating . You feel like he is a lion drawing you into his den, and you don’t care that he will devour you because it will be that good.

As alpha as Mount is, Meghan March delivers are heroine to rival him with Keria Kilgore. This woman has balls of steel, I tell you. First, she is carrying the business on her back through pure grit and determination. She is slowly making her way back from a horrible past relationship, for which she is still suffering the consequences of having. And although she submits to Mount time and again (and I can’t fault her for that EVER) sexually, she never does so without a fight. The fight in her is what I love most, and I honestly cannot wait to see how she evolves as a character throughout this entire trilogy. I think she is going to be my favorite Meghan March heroine.

On a completely different note, I think I’m in love with Magnolia. Her candor, her empowered views on sex, and her obvious love of Keria makes her prime BFF material, and I want her to be mine.

This story is one heck of a ride! From the first chapter, readers will be pulled in by the background and the unfortunate issues that are plaguing the heroine. The appearance of Mount and the subsequent days add to the suspense of the story, because, just like Keria, we have no idea what he wants for payment, we see the conflict of the heroine, and we see the allure of Mount. We just know that this ride is just getting started, as it is book one in the trilogy, and we know the plot twists are coming. And, boy, oh, boy did Meghan March deliver a plot twist I never saw coming, and there is nothing better than when an author can surprise me. Fair warning, though, you will be dying for book two the minute you end this book. So many questions, so many uncertainties, so many what the heck happens now. I cannot wait!!

Meghan March has again delivered a book I couldn’t put down, like, give my kids endless snacks, watch your iPad because Mommy needs to read kind of can’t put down. This trilogy is guaranteed to be a fan favorite of her loyal readers, but it will also earn her a hoard of new followers who will not be able to resist the seduction of New Orleans and its infamous crime boss.

#BlogTour “From this Moment” by Melanie Harlow

From This Moment by Melanie Harlow

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing Date: October 10th, 2017


 My musings…

5 Love Wins CROWNS

Based on this synopsis, I fully expected Melanie Harlow to bring the angst and to bring me to tears, and while there are many sad moments, I found From this Moment to be a story of love and healing and hope for the future versus one of sadness and despair.

The heroine and widow of the story, Hannah has suffered a loss that unfortunately many woman deal with and one no one wants to imagine. From this loss, she has shielded her heart from any form of love and any type of relationship with the exception of her daughter. Her emotional state in the beginning of the novel, while it is one I have never personally experienced, is one that connected me to her as a character. I can sympathize with her emotional state. I can understand how she feels about the world, her husband, and her future. Her desire to get up and “live” for her daughter and the well-being of her daughter is one most parents will understand. Her emotional struggle upon seeing Wes and spending more time with him is also a delicate situation, and I thought Melanie Harlow did a fantastic job with honoring the budding relationship between Wes and Hannah and not demeaning or downplaying the marriage of Hannah and Drew, which sometimes happens in these types of tropes. I loved that Hannah, once she decides on how she feels, never waivers on her feelings. Now, that doesn’t mean her decisions and course of action doesn’t change, but her feelings, what she admits to herself, don’t, and I found that to be incredibly likable.

Wes is truly the perfect hero to come and begin the healing process with Hannah. Not only does he heal her but he also heals the daughter as well as the entire family. He is sweet, compassionate, and understanding nature makes him the perfect man to give Hannah and Abby the future they and he deserves. Underneath that sweet man, though, is a kinkier side I never expected based on how we see him publicly and with Abby. When these two are alone, readers really get to see a much more domineering and adventurous side to his character. Although, there are times that his compassion and understanding mucks everything up, his torment over it is felt, and readers root for him to resolve the issues because they love him.

From This Moment has a hard story-line to sell. Like Lenore, society tends to judge, verbally and non-verbally. We don’t understand how someone falls in love with a brother of a deceased husband, but Melanie Harlow takes a step further by making them identical twins. It added a whole new layer of controversy and issues for the couple. This author, however, does an amazing job and showcasing that love can’t be contained or controlled. She gives each relationship its just dues, and she never discredits one brother or relationship for the other. And although readers may walk into the story with preconceived notions about what is proper, they will leave the story fully believing that love wins, that these two deserve each other and the happiness they provide one another. It is truly a touching and tender story, one of my favorites.

Melanie Harlow continues to be one of my one-click authors. This particularly series of angsty, inter-connected standalones has shown me another side of her writing, where she tackles loss and heartache, exemplifying how love heals and makes a person whole again. Each book personifies the essence of love and exhibits how we can get through anything if we open our hearts.

I know he’ll feel like pleasure and passion, even before he touches me.

I know he’ll demand more than I wants to give, and yet, because I dare to give myself to him, the result will be deliciously hot.

I know that I will not leave his bed without being utterly, completely sated. 

And I know that I will leave the next morning anyway.

And so, I do. 

And so, he follows.

And as chase begins my question becomes: Is Reese Summer THE one or is he really just a dirty, arrogant lie that should have stayed a one night stand?

THE OTHER BROTHER

NA Romantic Comedy

Model: David Harris


Synopsis:

I got the call. The dreaded call every child fears. My dad wasn’t well, and the man who had always been my everything needed me.

There was only one thing to do; pack up and head back to my hometown. I had finally made my dream life in the city with the great job and loving boyfriend. But was there really a choice not to go?

I found a wonderful job, a quaint house to rent, my boyfriend was working on joining me in Binghamton, and my favorite pizza place was only miles away. Life was good.

Until I met my neighbor.

It’s been three years since I’d seen Aaron Walters, and my God is he all kinds of sexy gorgeous. Figures. He was supposed to be my forever, the man I grew old with, but he had different plans. How can a man who ripped my heart apart still trip me up? How can he make me still want him now more than ever?

I’m tempted, I’m drawn toward him, I’m completely and utterly unaware that I’m dating his biological brother.

Now two men own my heart. The question is, which brother will I choose?

#ReleaseBlitz & #MBreview “Dignity” by Jay Crownover

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jay Crownover returns with the second title in her romantic suspense series, The Breaking Point, DIGNITY. Check out the excerpt below and grab your copy today!


My musings…

5 Tin Man Crowns

Let me introduce you to my new favorite couple and story about the Point. Noe and Stark are just a fantastic complex couple who find solace in their world together, and every minute of their journey is completely amazing.

Stark is the figurative Tin Man with a heart that has been on lock down since he suffered some serious losses in his life. The one girl to bring him back does so quickly and heats up all of his gears. From the minute they truly meet and engage in conversation, we get to see a different side to the boy genius – what plagues him, what he desires, and what drives him now and in the future. The man we get to meet is this complex man who balances between the world of good and evil, but make no mistake that this man is all good. His honor, his intelligence, and his appearance are the trifecta of everything I love in a hero.

Noe is a heroine I respect. Even when she has nothing, she chooses to help those who need it. She chooses to live her life in the shadows to protect herself, and while I extol her sense of duty to others and he choices she has made, I love that Jay Crownover gets her to take her life back. I also love that the author made Noe an equal to Stark. They are together, making choices and decisions for each other and what they become as the novel progresses. She is a true independent heroine and my favorite Crownover lady.

With the corruption and danger evident from chapter one, readers will be pulled into the plot of the story. The immediate danger for Noe, the corruption of the Point, and blurred lines of good and bad in this world make for an enticing story. Jay Crownover balances this world with the evolution and healing of two broken and damaged characters. Through the conflict and resolution of the story, we get to see them take ownership of their lives, we get to see passion erupt between the two, and we get to see a couple who truly has each other’s back in all situations.

I love this dark and dirty world Jay Crownover has created with this series. This one in particular and the questions posed about good and evil and the way she blurs the lines between the two makes Dignity a must read.

#ReleaseBlitz “Maverick” by Karina Halle

Maverick, an all-new contemporary STANDALONE

by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is LIVE!!!

SBPRBanner-Maverick-RB.jpg

Maverick by Karina Halle
Release Date: October 17th
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Synopsis:

Maverick is a complete standalone novel and the second book about the rough and rugged Nelson brothers. Get ready for one wild alpha mountain man – Canada’s never felt so hot!

Forget playing it safe.

John “Maverick” Nelson likes to live his life on the edge – literally. A crucial member of the search and rescue team in the mountainous British Columbian town of North Ridge, Maverick’s brash and bold attitude means he’s the first one to ascend into danger, no matter the risk.

When it comes to women, though, Maverick errs on the side of caution. For all his cocky charm, rugged good looks and sexual swagger, he remains as unreachable as the surrounding peaks. Hot, wild sex? He’ll tell you there’s no better way to spend a cold, wintry night. Relationships? He’d rather freeze.

That is until he lays his eyes on American Riley Clarke. Trading in the crippling expenses of Aspen for BC, Riley is North Ridge’s newest member of their search and rescue team and the only woman on the job, which means spending a lot of time with Mav in adrenaline-pumping situations.

With the chemistry between them hot enough to melt snow, keeping their hands off each other is detriment to the success of their team. Besides, Maverick’s her boss and she didn’t work her ass off in Colorado just to throw it all away for some mind-blowing sex.

But when the worst winter in years sweeps in, Riley and Maverick will have to battle the elements along with their attraction for each other. And if either of them slip up, both of them will be in for a deep freeze.
