#ReleaseBlitz “Hard Love” by Joanne Schwehm

 
Title: Hard Love
Author: Joanne Schwehm
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone

Release Date: July 18, 2017


My musings…

4 Romantic CROWNS

Hard Love by Joanne Schwehm is my first introduction to this author, and I have to say I adored the old-school romance feel of the whole story.

Noah Winston is really the perfect hero.  Even though he comes from troubled parents, he is incredibly well adjusted. He takes care of the heroine, but not in a controlling way.  He is a gentleman to the core, and he uses his immense wealth to make her happy. Noah also has lines for days, and they read authentically.  I swear this man made me swoon a million times over the course of this book.

Margo, who also comes from wealth, is venturing out from under the safety net of her parents’s fortune to make a name for herself by doing something she is passionate about. She is fiercely protective over those she loves, and seeing her come to the defense of her favorite people only wins major points for this heroine in the eyes of readers. She is more guarded with Noah over a specific interaction that occurred between them  in the past, and while some readers may find her inability to move on from it frustrating, others will be okay with it because it is human nature to hold onto things that have hurt us or embarrassed us.  This attribute made her relatable and likable.

There are not a lot of bumps in the road of love for Noah and Margo, but there are two aspects of their story that I really love. The first is the chemistry the author creates between them.  This is not an overly steamy novel, a lot of fade to black or just hints as to what happens, but I didn’t need it. Their love and their relationship is enough. The romance and the connection kept me reading because I got enough intimacy outside of the bedroom that I didn’t need more in it.  The other part of their story that I love is the idea of compromising. The idea that when you love someone, you are willing to change and evolve together to create a future that fits you both. It really spoke to real-world romance versus the often-romanticized version we read.

I really enjoyed this novel from Ms. Schwehm, and I am looking forward to her next book. I am kind of hoping some of Noah’s friends will make an appearance again.

Down in Whynot, NC, there are three things that hold true: 1) life moves just a little bit slower, 2) family means everything, and 3) you don’t mess with history.

When his family decides to sell a home that’s been part of their history for over a century, Lowe Mancinkus is madder than a hornet. To add insult to injury, the woman who purchased it is some fancy pants, city girl looking to fix it up and sell it off.

Well that just won’t do, now will it?

From the moment that she laid eyes on the historical home in rural North Carolina, Melinda Rothschild knew Mainer House was something special. The perfect escape from life in New York City, Melinda signed the papers and set to work restoring the house to its natural beauty. That is until an angry Lowe showed up on her doorstep one day.

After that fantastic night with Mia Summers, I’m ready to give her many more. But there’s a hitch in my plans — she just hired my company. If there’s one thing I’m committed to, it’s running a squeaky clean adventure tour business. One of the iron-clad rules?

#ReleaseBlitz & #MBreview “Fractured Love” by Ella James

EJFracturedLoveLIVE
Welcome to the Release of


 My musings…

4 FRACTURED CROWNS

Fractured Love is another romantic tale of two people who have limits placed on their relationship, preventing them from being together during the time period they originally meet.  It is filled with love, heartbreak, and reconciliation, all the makings of a good romance.

Landon is such a broken young man when readers meet him, and yet he has this strength beneath the surface to help him endure. As a young man, we see how being abandoned has changed him, and we get to see how being with Evie brings him a calm and a sense of home.  Ella James also rewards readers as we get to see what has become of him as an adut, and he really does become a good man.

Evie is a little naive and innocent when we meet her.  Meeting Landon is what makes her, for the first time, choose to “break the rules,” so to speak. She is then placed in an incredible predicament, and she tries to make the best choice for herself and all those involved.  Only later, will she have to pay the price for what occurred in her past. Readers, though, will forgive her for what she has done because of her age and the situation she was thrust into.

My absolute favorite part of this story is when they are younger.  Ella James begins their story in the present and then flashbacks back to their youth.  Here is where we really get to see and learn about Landon and Evie.  We get to see how they struggle to repress their feelings, and how, at the end of the day, they are just too drawn to each other.  We get to see the pain and the struggle they endure after their discovery, and it is heartbreaking because their love seems so pure and real during these years. When the author brings us back to the present, Evie and Landon are rekindling their relationship, and while I enjoyed them as adults, for me, they lost some of the magic that existed when they were younger.  They finally have to deal with their past and how it will affect their future, but I just wanted more of that magic I felt for the first half of the book.  I did, however, enjoy the pacing of the story and the development of the conflict. They are adults when dealing with the fallout, and I appreciate that. I also enjoy that she gives them peace, not just in their relationship but in all aspects of their lives by the end of the novel.

The Off-Limits series is such a unique idea. I love how all of these stories deal with characters who shouldn’t, in society’s eyes, be together, and that they are kept apart by these proclamations.  Yet, Ella James finds a way to make them work, for these characters to find a way, even if it is years later, to make it together, which really is the essence of true romance.

#BlogTour “The Darkest Sunrise” by Aly Martinez

Welcome to our blog tour stop for The Darkest Sunrise by Aly Martinez. It is the first book in a contemporary romance duet, and is it available to read for FREE on KindleUnlimited.

 

Be sure to follow Aly’s newsletter for exclusive news about the duet.


 My musings…

5+ Words Hurt CROWNS

Aly Martinez completely blew me away with the first book in The Darkest Sunrise Duet. The pain and heartbreak of the characters is raw and painful to witness, but she found a way to infuse beauty into the darkest aspects of their story, throwing glimpses of light and hope for a better future.

Charlie and Porter have a past filled with cataclysmic events, and while neither is the same, they have both suffered immensely as a result.  As expected, these tragedies have affected who they are and how they live.  But when they encounter each other, they recognize the darkness within each other. This recognition of the sameness within themselves serves as the catalyst for their relationship, and the way the author depicts their sadness and loss is poignant and real.  The readers can feel their pain and empathize with them.

The chemistry and the connection between these two characters is potent. They are drawn to each other and find peace and comfort in each others arms, and this is more than they ever could have hoped for. While there are some steamy scenes between these two, it is not at the forefront of this story.  Living in the dark while trying to find the light is what drives this prose, and it is absolutely enough the sustain the romance.

The pacing of this story is brilliant. Because it is a duet, readers should already be aware the author is going to leave the them with a cliff hanger, but the break in the story is at a natural pause and will only serve to leave readers dying to get their hands on the next one. The author uses book one to flush out the characters, showing the depth of their sadness and despair. She also uses book one to highlight how these characters are attempting to heal and move forward. Through her words, readers to get to witness true and unselfish love, and while it is tragic at times, there is beauty in it as well.

Aly Martinez has created something beautiful with The Darkest Sunrise. It is brilliant, filled with emotions that many experience but are unable to express, and she has given a voice not only to those who have similar experiences to the characters, but has also given them a sliver of light in the darkness.

#BlogTour “Beautiful Mistake” by Vi Keeland

Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

AVAILABLE NOW!


 My musings…

4.5 Musical Crowns

Beautiful Mistake has a different tone than most of Vi Keeland’s novels, and yet it is still just as riveting, conveying another fantastic romantic encounter between two complex and engaging characters.

Caine West has had a hard past, leaving him with a guilt that was weighed heavily on him. This obviously affects his perception of himself and how he interacts with others. It is clear, quickly, through his dealings with others and, more specifically, Rachel, that he isn’t as selfish as he thinks. Watching him come to terms with his past and how it affects his future is a heavier aspect of the story, but I enjoyed this change of pace.

Rachel also has a difficult past, and yet she has chosen to move on to a brighter future, taking that one moment and turning into a positive. She does hide aspects of her past in order to progress forward, and she has many emotional moments as a result of her temper, but she recognizes it and embraces that part of who she is.  Her understanding of who she is as well as her ability to accept and move on from her tragic past makes her an incredibly strong heroine.

The tone and topics addressed in Beautiful Mistake are of a more serious nature, but Vi Keeland doesn’t just toss readers into it. She entices readers with some comedic moments and the sexual tension between Cain and Rachel. When the more serious aspects of the story begin to be intertwined with the romance, it is done in a way that only enhances the connection between the two characters. The resolution to the story does happen quickly, and, although it didn’t need to be a long drawn out apology, the quick jump from apology to lust is abrupt. This, however, doesn’t detract from the story, and the resolution is absolute perfection, a blending of the past and future.

With Beautiful Mistake, Vi Keeland exemplifies her ability to write more than just rom-com, light-hearted stories. She can tackle and angst and serious issues that are just as entertaining and endearing.

#NewReleasae “The Unrequited” by Saffron A. Kent

Title: The Unrequited

Author: Saffron A. Kent

Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance

Release Date: July 13, 2017


Synopsis:

Layla Robinson is not crazy. She is suffering from unrequited love. But it’s time to move on. No more stalking, no more obsessive calling.

What she needs is a distraction. The blue-eyed guy she keeps seeing around campus could be a great one—only he is the new poetry professor—the married poetry professor.

Thomas Abrams is a stereotypical artist—rude, arrogant, and broody—but his glares and taunts don’t scare Layla. She might be bad at poetry, but she is good at reading between the lines. Beneath his prickly façade, Thomas is lonely, and Layla wants to know why. Obsessively.

Sometimes you do get what you want. Sometimes you end up in the storage room of a bar with your professor and you kiss him. Sometimes he kisses you back like the world is ending and he will never get to kiss you again. He kisses you until you forget the years of unrequited love; you forget all the rules, and you dare to reach for something that is not yours.

NOTE: Please be aware that this book deals with sensitive topics like cheating and death. 18+ Only.

#ReleaseBlitz & #MBreview “Sin” by Emma Hart

SIN (A Vegas Nights Novel Book 1)

By Emma Hart

Standalone

Release Day – July 18


 My musings…

4 Sinful Crowns

Emma Hart has returned to Vegas to deliver a sinfully sensuous enemies to lovers romance that is enticing from the very first page.

The chemistry between Damien and Dahlia is immediate, even though the underlying emotions evolve as the story progresses. Although the sexual tension is potent from the very beginning, it is clear that their is disdain for the other. This hatred stems from not really knowing or understanding each other, and as they meet and uncover each other’s secrets, the hatred transforms into much more. As with any Emma Hart book, the intimate moments between these two is smoking hot and only serves to push their relationship forward.

Fair warning, though, Damien is the hero you love to hate in the beginning. He has the arrogant nature and an abrasive personality that makes Dahlia hate him, but readers, especially those who love a cocky hero, will adore him. What I liked most is that Emma Hart actually gives a legitimate reason for his demeanor, and he evolves as the story goes on. We get to see what makes him this way, and we get to see him change into something so much better.

Dahlia is a pretty awesome heroine from the get go. She is a ball-buster and incredibly fierce. She doesn’t back down to this dominant hero, and she makes the choice to take things to a physical level. She also has suffered tragedies that she has risen from, making her stronger in the end. I love who she is and what she does for Damien.

The story and relationship will keep readers intrigued. Watching them move from hate to like to love is fantastic. Seeing them work through their pasts and open their hearts is rewarding and helps develop the characters. And while I wish the conflict between the two would have been more significant, the ending is perfect. The troubled man readers love finds peace, and together they find happiness. Plus, we get a great lead-in to the next standalone in the series.

Emma Hart is one of my go-to writers for romances that will fog up my kindle. She creates a captivating world inside the Vegas limits, and I’m glad we will be staying here for some time.

#Teaser “So Good” by Nicola Rendell

So Good by Nicola Rendell

Coming August 7th


IMG_3322.PNGSynopsis:

On the roof of a house outside Truelove, Maine, master carpenter Max Doyle looks down through a skylight and sees the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on. She’s naked, she’s gorgeous, and everything about her is perfect, down to the ball-busting tattoo of a rose that wraps around her hip. But it isn’t just any woman making his knees buckle. It’s his best friend, Rosie Madden. And as he stands there, mesmerized and precariously close to toppling off the roof, he knows he’ll never, ever be able to look at her the same way again.

Rosie can’t help but notice that Max is suddenly acting very strange—lots of long stares, totally tongue-tied, and not at all like the slightly cocky hunk she’s proud to call her best friend. She can’t figure it out, until later that night when Max rescues her from the world’s worst date, challenges her to a game of pool, and shows her just exactly what she’s got him thinking about. Repeatedly.

But life is complicated. Rosie’s cat, Julia Caesar, wants to eat Max’s dog Cupcake for an afternoon snack. A dream job threatens to pull them apart. And another glance through the skylight changes everything, one more time. Yet try as they might, they can’t go back to being just friends, because falling in love with the one you’ve always adored?

It feels so good.

#Teaser “Twisted Twowsome” by Meghan Quinn

TWISTED TWOSOME

by Meghan Quinn

NA Romantic Comedy


Synopsis:

Racer McKay is a broody bastard.

From the moment I met him, he’s been rude, irritable, and unbearable.

A contractor working to remodel my parents pool house for extra cash, he stomps around in those clunky construction boots with his tool belt wrapped around his narrow waist, and a chip on his shoulder.

Racer McKay is also infuriatingly . . . sexy as hell. I want to take that pencil tucked behind his ear, and draw lazy lines slowly up and down his body all the while wanting to strangle him at the same time.

We try to stay out of each other’s way . . . that is until I have no other option but to ask for his help.

But what I don’t realize is he needs me just as much as I need him. I have money he’s desperate for, and he holds the key to making my dreams come true.

Our pranks turn from sarcastic banter, to sexual tension and lust-filled glances. Bickering matches quickly morph into slow burn moments. We’re hot, we’re cold. We push and pull. I need him, I don’t want him. We’re on the verge of combusting with an agreement dangling dangerously between us. Neither one of us can afford to lose one another and yet, we’re finding it quite hard to decipher the line that rests between love and hate.

#MBreview “Hello Forever” by Sarina Bowen

Hello Forever by Sarina Bowen

Genre: MM Romance

AVAILABLE NOW!


 My musings…

4 Coming Home CROWNS

Sarina Bowen is solely responsible for opening the world of MM romance to me, and since that day, I have never looked book. Just like all of her other books, this story is filled with such amazing characters, sweet romance, and intimate moments that are heat-inducing and sweet.

Part of what makes this story so enjoyable is Axel and Cax. Axel has that natural charm, that something that is indescribable and just draws you in. Although he yearns to reconnect with Cax, he is incredibly respectful of the limitations Cax operates under, because he truly loves this man. Cax is a much more complicated character, and not because he is denying his sexual orientation, is a manwhore, or any of the other reasons that heroes sometimes causes problems for themselves. Cax knows who he is and who he wants, but there is so much weighing him down that he can’t seem to see the light. His reasons for denial only serve to make his character endearing and sympathetic.

Watching these two together is sweet but also hard. They face what, at times, seems to be insurmountable odds to be together. Their intense feelings for each other only serve to make their anguish palpable and heartbreaking. They way they choose to sacrifice for each other and delay gratification makes their relationship real and true love.

Sarina Bowen has created another heartwarming, soul-stirring novel that highlights that love is really love, and the introduction of new character makes me hope we will see more of this world.

Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

AVAILABLE NOW!


Synopsis:

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.

He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend–smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he’d done.

Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.

Only it turned out, the man I’d just told off wasn’t the right guy.

Oops. My mistake.

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.

I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?

That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.

Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.

I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.

#ReleaseBoost “Dating the Billionaire” by Poppy Dunne

Title: Dating the Billionaire

Author: Poppy Dunne

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: July 12, 2017


My musings…

4 Follow the Rules CROWNS

Dating the Billionaire by Poppy Dunne is a fun and quick romance. The characters are entertaining and their quick romance is fun and steamy.

Jack is an interesting billionaire. While he is good looking and incredibly wealthy tech. genius, he lacks that controlling and domineering quality readers have come to expect from this character archetype. He is funny and charming, and there is an immature side of him. He doesn’t often think of consequences of his actions because he is looking for have fun, not just for himself but for others, too.

Dahlia lives a life of rules. It is how she has learned to function in her life, and she rarely, if ever, deviates from the rules. Jack, though, challenges hers, and while she rises to the challenge, she also knows enough about herself to know when she needs to walk.

Dating the Billionaire is a story that is not only focused on romance but also showcases the evolution of two characters. It shows how two people in a relationship change and become something better when they find that person who they have that spark with.
