#NewRelease “The Wrong Gentleman” by Louise Bay

THE WRONG GENTLEMAN by Louise Bay
Release Date: February 19th


Tricia’s Musings…

3.5 CROWNS

With the Wrong Gentleman, Ms Bay gives us a sweet, gentle, slow burn of a romance. However, I’m sad to say this was a little too much of a slow burn for my personal taste. It’s beautifully written as always, and the main characters were appealing but I would have liked to have seen more depth and a little more passion from them on an emotional level, in order to feel that their connection was anything other than a physical one.

There was a suspenseful element to the story but again, but there were no real surprises and Landon’s involvement was very minimal. The undercover aspect of the plot had good potential but that side of the storyline wasn’t fleshed out enough for me. I needed Landon to take a more active role and I would’ve preferred more show than tell, in order to get a sense of danger that I felt was missing.

Whilst I didn’t dislike the story, I didn’t love it either. I just needed more. More twists and turns, more action and more surprises.

Although this was not one of my favourites from this author, I will continue to look forward to reading her books in the future. Continue Reading

#NewRelease “The Half Truth” by Leddy Harper

The (Half) Truth, an all-new standalone emotional romance by Leddy Harper is NOW LIVE!


Synopsis:

From bestselling author Leddy Harper comes a sizzling romance about an aspiring young chef who may discover that the perfect recipe for love involves all accidental ingredients…

Tatum Alexander is so close to realizing her dream of becoming a sous chef she can taste it, but working at her ex-fiancé’s restaurant with his new girlfriend was never in her career plan. To save face and prove she’s moved on, Tatum cooks up a lie that she’s in a relationship with her best friend’s superhot cousin. There’s just one problem: Jason only recently moved to town, and he has no idea they’re already “dating.”

Jason’s a recovering ladies’ man who shouldn’t be on the menu, but that doesn’t mean he’s immune to Tatum’s quirky charm. Giving her lie a kernel of truth, they decide some no-strings-attached fun between the sheets can’t hurt. But as Tatum’s forced to keep making up stories to cover her original fib, she has a hard time separating what’s real and what’s fake—including her feelings for Jason.

With too many tales spun, Tatum can only watch in horror as her collection of yarns begins to unravel, leaving everyone she cares about feeling betrayed. After so many lies, will it be too late to set the record straight? And more importantly, will she be able to convince Jason there’s truth in their love?

#Review “Roma Queen” by Callie Hart

 

Roma Queen by Callie Hart
Series: Roma Royals Duet #2
Genres: Contemporary RomanceRomantic Suspense


Tricia’s Musings…

5 CROWNS

The opening to Roma Queen stole my breath. It’s shocking, it’s tragic and it’s just heartbreaking. I wanted to step inside the pages, take away the hurt and make everything all right. Similar scenes throughout the book are equally, if not more, disturbing and difficult to read. Those scenarios are decidedly challenging, the depravity difficult to comprehend, but for someone who likes the darkness, I found them fascinating and certainly fundamental to the story.

Our couple are on a mission, but along the way we get to meet some fascinating characters, explore another culture, and see lives lived differently. There’s a real contrast between the moments of brutality and the growing love between Pasha and Zara. Zara calls Pasha “A physical need that flows in my blood” and you can see that love develop and grow, becoming all encompassing as the story progresses.

“He is a burning ache that thrums in my chest. He is a warning, and a plea, and a gunshot in the dark, and I have only one way of responding to him: desperately, fiercely, and with every part of my soul”.

Ms Hart has created a wonderfully complex world that drew me in and kept me glued to the pages. It’s a very clever, intricate, plot and it was tough to contain my excitement at times. Even when it became clear that certain people had no moral compass and their betrayal ran deep, I was fascinated to see what would happen next. I received answers to questions I didn’t even know I had. I got a kick out of several ‘aha!’ moments during the course of the story, especially when things began to come together towards the end. With my imagination creating a mind map, I wanted to go off in different directions to satisfy my curiosity. I’m being deliberately cryptic when I say I really hope we get to discover the outcome of one particular newsworthy headline. If you’re familiar with this author you’ll understand when I say the perpetrators are going to be very sorry, very quickly!

I highly recommend Roma Queen. A fantastic and unique conclusion to this duet, it’s gripping, well written, sexy, and intriguing and I loved it. Continue Reading

#CoverReveal “Make Me Bad” by R.S. Grey

R.S. Grey’s next romantic comedy, MAKE ME BAD, releases March 7th! Check out the cover and find out more about MAKE ME BAD below!


About MAKE ME BAD (available March 7th)

I was issued a warning: stay away from Ben Rosenberg.

As Clifton Cove’s resident “king”, he thinks he’s entitled to anyone and anything.

The trouble is, I’ve spent my whole life following the rules and playing it safe. I know what it feels like to be the good girl. I’m the police chief’s daughter and a librarian—for adorable children, no less. My wardrobe consists of colorful sundresses and baggy jeans. I might as well have a Post-it stuck to my forehead that reads: Yup, she’s a virgin.

An all-nighter with a fictional hunk is about as exciting as my life gets, until one day, fate decides to take pity on me and shove me straight into the path of Mr. Off-Limits himself.

Oof.

Just as I suspected, every inch of him promises to be my demise. Up close, he’s tall, menacing, dangerously handsome—the type of man who’s never spent a single moment worrying about the opinions of others. A well-behaved girl would do as she’s told and avoid him at all costs, but I’m overdue for a little rebellion.

No more Friday nights sprawled out on the couch in my comfiest pajamas. No more wishing I had the courage to misbehave.

Everyone thinks Ben is going to ruin me.

They think he’ll chew me up and spit me out.

Well, Ben…go ahead.

Tempt me. Taunt me.

Make me bad.

Raven,
Where the hell did you go? It’s been hours and we’re losing our damn minds over here. I’m fully aware act first, think later is your MO, but you pulled away from us, AGAIN, and I’m about fucking tired of it.
Now you’ve got me sitting here writing this dumb-ass letter you’ll never see all so I can make sense of my own frustration.
See, we’ve never known anyone like you. You’re every bit a pain in our ass as you are the force behind our new found fire.

We just never expected you to fit the way you do. I’d have never believed you existed if I didn’t fall at your feet myself.
Basically what I’m saying is don’t fuck this up, for us or for you. We all need you in our own way, so get your ass back home, and lets fix whatever’s wrong as a team.

#BlogTour “Motion” by Penny Reid

BANNER_BT.jpg

Motion, the first in the all-new Laws of Physics Trilogy from Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid, is available now!


Sarah’s Musings…

4.5 Furhorngry CROWNS

GAH! This is why I love Penny Reid! Her unique voice, original and intelligent characters, and chemistry that is built in more than the physical intimacy makes her an ALWAYS MUST READ AUTHOR!

I’m utterly in love with these two. Mona and Abram are just fantastic. Mona is the child science prodigy. Her intelligence is her signature mark, and she sees all parts of the world through those eyes. Seeing her personality grow and take shape with abram is fun and entertaining. While Abram’s growth isn’t as large as Mona’s there is still a change in his character. Their connection is built on their banter, their conversation which evolves into something physical.

This story is part one of three, so it is very much the exposition and introduction to the conflict. Even though it is the beginning of the story, it is still engaging and entertaining. There is a cliffhanger, but honestly it isn’t that bad and I knew it was coming. Once readers get Mona’s internal conflict in regards to Abram, it is pretty clear how the story will end. I’ll be interested to see how the story shakes out, though, once the all is revealed. I’m not sure I know these two well enough to know just yet.

Penny Reid has crafted another unique and engaging story. It is one of the reasons she is always on my SMART ROMANCE LIST.

#NewRelease “Luck of the Devil” by Meghan March

Luck of the Devil Release Day Blitz/Blog Tour Collateral

Release Date: February 12, 2019


Sarah’s Musings…

5 Meghan is the Meanest but I Love Her CROWNS

OMG!! Oh. My. God. This is why Meghan March is the Queen of suspense!! She kills me, slays me with her characters who burn up the sheets and plots that entice me from page one!

Jericho Forge. Oh my, oh my. I thought I was in love before, but this version, this man, who loves Indy and is determined to show her, sets me in fire! He is what a man should be – dominate, confident, caring, and loving. He goes above and beyond to show his woman how much he adores her.

Indy doesn’t go through much of an evolution in this one, but with the ending of Luck of the Devil, I’m so excited to see how she tackles the conflict that has been laid down in front of her. If I know Meghan March, she is going to develop into one of my favorite type of heroines, one who kicks butt and takes names.

Luck of the Devil is a journey of love and mystery. Readers get the romance and heat of Jericho and Indy as we see them really fall in love, and the cliff hanger that will have them (and me) dying for the conclusion of their story! I’m going to need that now.

#Review “Down Under” by Donna Alam

Dear birthday gods,
I’d like my very own Australian experience, if you know what I mean.
One with a sinful accent and a very wicked grin . . .


Tricia’s Musings…

5 CROWNS

A first read for me by this author and what a little gem to start with. Down Under is such a well written, fun story, and just my cup of tea. This book is without a doubt a great pick me up. I loved each and every character for different reasons and it brightened my day no end.

Amber is taking some time away from her job and life in the US and is currently backpacking around Australia, working odd jobs in order to fund her travels. I love this woman. She’s smart, confident, quirky and hugely endearing. After treating herself to a hot stranger and a night in a fancy hotel for her 30th birthday, she teams up with Rose and a motley crew of fellow backpackers and heads off to wine country in search of a job. Having arrived at a winery, Amber gladly accepts a job as nanny to four year old twins Matty and Edie. These kids are adorable, their characters are brilliantly written and their innocent remarks had me in fits. Not merely side characters, the twins play an important, almost scene stealing, role in the story. Their Nana, Sally, is a hoot and the sort of grandma I would’ve loved growing up. She’s a no nonsense kind of woman with a kind heart, a twinkle in her eye and a spring in her step.

Despite being a drop dead gorgeous Chris Hemsworth look-alike, second impressions of Byron (the first impressions were that he was the best birthday present ever, in case you were wondering), are that he’s irritable and standoffish, and quiet frankly a bit of a grumpy git. As the story progresses, we get to know him and before long, his real personality shines through. He’s a lovely man underneath all the abrasiveness and cynicism. He oozes sexual chemistry and this author does a fantastic job of letting us “hear” his swoony Australian accent. Whilst I wouldn’t say the story is overly angsty, not everything in the garden, or should I say vineyard, is rosy and Amber and Byron have some challenges to overcome before they can find their happy ever after.

A hugely enjoyable story, Down Under is fun, flirty, and naughty, with lots of cheeky humour and sexy shenanigans. It had me laughing my head off and I absolutely loved it. Continue Reading

#CoverReveal “The Feel Good Factor” by Lauren Blakely

That inked bad boy who’s been striking sparks with me since he rode into town? Turns out he’s my new housemate, which adds up to a super-complicated living situation and chemistry so hot it should be illegal.

THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR, a sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lauren Blakely, will be releasing on March 25, 2019 on all retailers! A roommates-to-lovers romantic comedy, don’t miss the stunning cover below, and pre-order your copy today!

Photography by Wong Sim ♦ Model is Sahib Faber ♦ Cover Design by Helen Williams.


About THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR (Coming 3/25/2019):

I have a fantastic family, great best friends, a job I love…and now I’m up for a promotion to police sergeant. I need total focus—not a flirty, dirty, irresistible, tattooed hottie riding into my town on his motorcycle. Can I arrest him for being too good-looking? When he kisses me senseless in the back of a waffle truck, it’s criminal, the things he makes me think about hot syrup and melted butter. One order of hot, fluffy hookup to go, please.

But the next time I see him, it’s not for our date with benefits. He’s the guy who just rented the room above my garage.

I need the rent to pay my bills, not a man like Derek, who I soon discover to be strong, caring, generous, good with kids, and kind to puppies… If I’m not careful, he’ll be moving into my heart as well as my house.

***

A no-strings-attached fling with the fiery redhead who revs my engine? Why, yes, that does sound like a delicious perk of my new job in this new town, thank you very much. I’m coming off a bad relationship, and I have zero interest in anything serious. I’ve got all the serious I need helping my sister take care of her three little kids while her husband is deployed.

Except, surprise! Perri isn’t just my future fling. Turns out she’s my sexy, sassy landlord.

A lease definitely counts as “strings attached,” and as much as I’d like to get tangled in her sheets, I can’t let myself get tangled up in a relationship.

But as soon as we put the cuffs on our escapades, I learn over late-night conversations in the kitchen, that my landlord is so much more than the sexiest woman I’ve ever met– she has a quick mind and the biggest heart.

Once I’m in, I’m all in. And to convince her that we should see where this goes, I plan on turning up the heat—and not just in the kitchen.

Who is this girl, and why can I see her so vividly?

#NewRelease “Stoned” by Layla Frost

Stoned by Layla Frost

Released: February 12th 2019

Series: The Four #2


Tricia’s Musings…

5 CROWNS

I was taken completely by surprise when I started reading this series. I’m not a huge reader of PNR and so didn’t know what to expect. I enjoyed book one, Styx, but I absolutely loved Stoned. I will admit to being a little confused at the beginning and had to refer back to book one to get my bearings. I appreciate that Stoned picks up where Styx left off, but a little catch up at the beginning I think would have helped. In keeping with the overall theme of the book, in my head I was imagining this in a sort of tv voice-over “Previously on …” kind of way! The whole storyline is so fabulously unique in its retelling of a certain ancient tale, that once I got into the swing of things again, I couldn’t put it down.

Oh Juno, how I loved her. Her strength of character, her quirkinesses, her foul mouth and witty one liners had me in stitches. I wish her “nerdtastic” stores existed on my local high street. With books and comics (sometimes of the special variety – I’ll leave you to discover those for yourself!), coffee and board games, not to mention cotton candy served by the hysterically self titled “prematurely expired”, I’d never want to leave. I also really enjoyed the insight into Juno’s history, told in such a way that enhanced, rather than interrupted, the flow of the story and made her even more endearing, if that were possible. Fantastically steamy moments and alpha growliness are provided courtesy of the wonderfully named detective Stellan Reddick, from whom Juno is keeping one heck of a big secret (or two).

As well as all the fun and magicks, there’s some mystery and suspense going on, together with a smidge of danger, and an important quest, which is really the whole premise of the series. Although each book concentrates on a different couple/character, they are interconnected and the story arc continues from the previous book. Because of this, I would recommend you read them in order.

This series is my first read of anything by this author and I love her writing style, her inventive storyline and her humour. My advice would be to throw all your preconceived and stereotypical ideas of witches, and of angels and devils out of the window, suspend your disbelief and dive right in. I did and I loved it.

#NewRelease “Kill Switch” by Penelope Douglas

“I’ve done far worse than what I went to prison for.

She has no idea how bad this can get.”

release blitz SBPRBANNER.jpg

Kill Switch, an all-new standalone dark romantic suspense by Penelope Douglas is live!


Sarah’s Musings…

5 Red’s My favorite Color CROWNS

I feel like I should start this review by saying this isn’t your typical romance. This isn’t boy meets girl, they fall in love, some conflict occurs that separates them for a short time, and then some grand gesture brings them back together.

This is a romance based on secrets and half truths. It’s a romance that centers on revenge and hate. As we all know love and hate are such closely related and passionate emotions, and Penelope Douglas blues these lines with Damon and Winter till they swirl around into a murky mess, where logic doesn’t make sense and your emotions rule.

My heart broke for Damon Torrance, and I knew that it would. Each scene from him in previous books showed glimpses of how lonely he was, how damaged he became from how life roughed him up. He is a character who on the surface seems to have it all – good looks, money, status, and yet he has spent his life denied the one thing he wanted. The times he thought he had it had been ripped away from him, and we really get to see what makes Damon tick, what has made him so angry. With each chapter and through the use of flashbacks we see all the mistakes and the misunderstanding and mistreatment, and our hearts shatter for this broken boy who became a cold-hearted man. Seeing him evolve, to let go of his anger and revenge and embrace love (in a very much Damon way) really showcases how forgiveness and acceptance are needed.

Winter is a wonderful heroine. There are times that I was angry with her while understanding the choices she made and the actions she took. There is a fight to her, with her pursuit of dance and her resistance to Damon. She isn’t idle. She does what she can to get her own happiness, but what I loved is that while she was able to bring love to Damon’s life, he brought her strength. He showed her how to grab what she wants and be fierce. Seeing her embrace these new parts of her character was just was rewarding .

From the very beginning we move back and forth between the past and the present. With each flashback, the author peels back the layers of Winter and Damon, and we get to see the missing pieces of their story. We get to see them fall in love, be torn apart, and attempt to deal with the anger, hurt, and revenge that follows. With any Devil’s Night book, there are surprises and revelations we weren’t expecting and some things that we were, but what I really loved most of all is the many topics and themes addressed in the novel and the evolution of Damon’s character. This is more than romance, it’s a character study on how a person’s past affects their psyche, how the desire for companionship can force humans to act out, and how love is acceptance of who someone is. This isn’t a swoon worthy romance, but it is a romance that has many more real-life lessons about love and life.

What I love most about this series is that it is a romance in the sense that these couples embrace the light and dark inside each other. None of them are fully good or fully bad, but they are still worthy of love. Their partners don’t try to change or suppress their urges or desires but they embrace them and let these darker parts out to play. For this alone, the Devil’s Night series will forever be one of my favorites.

#NewRelease “Lust” by Ker Dukey

NOW’S YOUR CHANCE TO DELVE INTO THE SECRET SOCIETY

THE ELITE SEVEN

LUST an Elite Seven novel by Ker Dukey is LIVE!!

Keep reading to grab your copy & to enter to win a $20 gift card!!!


Sarah’s Musings…

4 Elite CROWNS

Lust is the beginning of The Elite Seven world, and Ker Dukey introduces to a world of sin and debauchery that is sure to be pushed through the next 6 books.

Rhett from the beginning has your sympathy. You understand why he has lost himself to drugs and alcohol and sins of the flush. You understand his need for the secret society and what they have to offer him. You revel in his healing and happiness. He is really just an all around lovable hero who happens to ooze sexuality and charm.

Chastity is the complete opposite of our hero, restricted by her father, a lot less sexually experienced, but she has a fire to her that matches Rhett.

I enjoyed the story and the writing, but I did feel like the relationship between the two professed too quickly, the conflict introduced and resolved with little angst or real trouble for the main characters. I did love the seeds that are planted for the rest of the series, and I did enjoy the story. I just felt bereft at the end of it, like I needed more of Rhett and Chastity and their struggle with this society and his sin.

I’m excited for this world. It is sexy, secretive, and sure to seduce me. Lust is just the tip of the iceberg.

#NewRelease “Motion” by Penny Reid

RB_BANNER.jpg

Motion, the first in the all-new Laws of Physics Trilogy from Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid, is available now!


LOP_MOTION.jpg

Synopsis:

One week.

Home alone.

Girl genius.

Unrepentant slacker.

What’s the worst that could happen?

Mona is a smart girl and had everything figured out a long time ago. She had to. She didn’t have a choice. When your parents are uber-celebrities and you graduate from high school at thirteen, finish college at seventeen, and start your PhD program at eighteen, you don’t have time for distractions outside of your foci. Even fun is scheduled.

Which is why Abram, her brother’s best friend, is such an irritant.

Abram is a talented guy, a supremely gifted musician, and has absolutely nothing figured out, nor does he seem to care. He does what he feels, when he feels, and—in Mona’s opinion—he makes her feel entirely too much.

Laws of Physics is the second trilogy in the Hypothesis series; Laws of Physics parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.
