#NewRelease “Dating the Enemy” by Nicole Williams

Dating the Enemy

by Nicole Williams


Synopsis:

Ms. Romance, Hannah Arden, writes one of the top read relationship advice columns in the nation. Mr. Reality, Brooks North, writes the top read relationship advice column.

Ms. Romance believes in true love and soul mates. Mr. Reality believes love is a term humanity has assigned to the primal instinct to procreate. She believes in fate—he in chance. She knows there’s one right person for everyone—he knows there are multiple ones. The two writers couldn’t be more polarized on relationships. They’re professional rivals, and philosophical antagonists.

For eight years, their battles have been fought with words and ink. That changes when they apply for the same position at the World Times and find themselves face-to-face for the first time. Brooks isn’t the sour-faced, antiquity of a man Hannah pictured. And Hannah isn’t exactly the middle-aged shrew with cat hair on her housedress that Brooks imagined either.

In lieu of competing for the promotion traditional ways, the two writers are presented with playing the leading roles in a social experiment unlike any before. Can a person be tricked into falling in love? Can a relationship be crafted under the right string of circumstances? Hannah knows the answer. So does Brooks.

Agreeing to the terms, the two set out on a three-month dating experiment, live-streamed for the world to watch. All Hannah has to do to win is not fall in love with the narcissistic brute. All Brooks has to do is get the starry-eyed dreamer to fall in love with him. Both are so confident in their philosophies, they expect the challenge to be easy.

With the world watching, Brooks and Hannah will be forced to confront their beliefs and conclude, once and for all, who’s right. The answer is one neither of them saw coming.

LIVE EARLY

Musings… 

Grace and Sol are every single thing. Pure hearts, even purer love for each other, torn between devotion to religion and finding themselves and their hearts. Every moment is temptation and truth. Every touch torture and pleasure. Every act sends them deeper towards an end they know will leave them desolate. But how do you walk away from the one you love??? I don’t know, because I was left broken by these two, and Autumn Grey needs to put Disgraceful in my hands ASAP.

FULL REVIEW COMING TOMORROW

BLURB

There are angels and demons at war inside my head.

I had it all figured out: finish high school, attend seminary and finally answer my calling of becoming a priest. What I hadn’t counted in the equation was her.

Grace Miller.

The girl who was always out of my reach. The girl who still makes me lose my breath with just a look.

Little did I know she would become my temptation and vice, and quite possibly, my ruin.

Now I’m standing at a crossroads, and my head is a battlefield. How do I choose sides when it means losing a part of who I am?

#NewRelease “A Nordic King” by Karina Halle

ANordicKing-SBPRBANNER-RB.jpg

A Nordic King by Karina Halle
Publication Date: September 21, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Musings…

5 Goddess CROWNS

Ahh!! Returning to this world has just been everything. The Swedish Prince, The Wild Heir, and now A Nordic King (all stand-alones), top my list of favorite Karina Halle books. The heart behind these characters to the royal romances that are steamy and heartfelt have made them must reads.

King Aksel has been that secondary character in the previous books who has been stoic, but in his book readers get to see the man behind the crown. We learn about the death of his wife, how it affects him, and what motivates him to be so closed off. My heart broke for him, and, yet, it also understood the actions of someone who had been deeply hurt. This incident explains so much of who he is, and yet the story is more about him coming life, releasing his guilt and starting anew. Like most of Karina’s leading men, King Aksel is indeed a dirty Dane with a romantic soul. I am absolutely romanced by this man.

Aurora was an unexpected character. I didn’t expect her to be so challenging. I was full expecting the prim and proper nanny who resisted the forbidden nature of the relationship. I love that she, though, wasn’t and had a past she ran from just like Aksel. Her love for their family and her ability to call him on his issues, especially where his daughters are involved, makes readers respect her. The heroine only gets better as the novel progresses and readers see her evolve into a queen.

Usually, the romance novels centers on the hero and heroine, but Karina Halle gave us a bit more with two adorable princesses, who not only steal your heart but also serve as a catalyst for the relationship between the King and the nanny. And, of course, Snarf Snarf, the adorable teacup pig! I love the humor and antics he brings to the story.

What usually sells me on a story is when the journey is about more than the romance and the moments in the bedroom, and A Nordic King is about so much more than that. It is about stripping away guilt, owning up mistakes, taking a risk on second chances. The characters journey is one that resonates because all humans are flawed and make errors but that doesn’t mean we are worth less than someone else. We are all worthy family and love and happiness, so seeing these two find that with love is what makes this story a 5 crown read.

This is one of those series that makes me sad when it is all over. These stories have been heart stopping and sexy and entertaining. Every single character, every single moment has been phenomenal, and this will be, without a doubt, a group of novels I will read time and time again

#NewRlease “Booted” by Pam Godwin

Image result for buckled pam godwin live

TRAILS OF SIN Series by Pam Godwin

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Theme: Dark, brooding, kinky, lawless cowboys

Each book is an HEA with no cliffhanger. Must be read in order.


Musings…

5+ Dance With ME CROWNS

I’m an emotional freaking mess right now. Pam Godwin has reduced me to tears. My heart is aching because it’s over, but I have a huge smile on my face for these six characters who deserve the best HEA in all the land. My words will never EVER do this series justice. It is completely and utterly PHENOMENAL.

To say I’ve been waiting for Lorne’s piece of the story is an understatement, and while I do love his character and Raina, I love them together more than anything. Pam Godwin create such emotionally closed off characters (for different reasons) who fight and aggravate each other. In their aggression, respect grows, and from the respect comes understanding. These two couldn’t have been better suited for each other, and just like the previous couple, their love is consuming. With a look across the room and brush across the skin, the readers can feel the tension and emotion permeate the air.

Booted is where Pam Godwin brings this story of vengeance full circle. This series has been riddled with violence, with atrocities so hard I had to put my book down and walk away, but it is also a story of healing, of family, of love. By the end of this book,
I had the biggest smile on my face, and I love that she brings the story full circle. That it ends in the manner it began, a happy family, content and filled with love is pure story-crafting genius.

This series is one for the ages. I love every single bit of it, the examination of greed and how it changes and corrupts people, the love between family, the sense of justice when it is ripped from a person, healing and romantic love, finding peace and joy in life. Gahhh!! I could just go on and on. It is absolutely 1000% a must read. You need it. I need to reread it. It is a top pick of 2018 without a doubt.

#BlogTour “Guilty as Sin” by Meghan March

GUILTY AS SIN 

SIN TRILOGY BOOK 2 & 3

By Meghan March

Release Day: SEPT 18th 


Musings…

3.5 Feuding CROWNS

I am a huge Meghan March fun. He stories always captivate me with the mysteries, the suspense, the hot as sin heroes and feisty heroines. While I am enjoying the trilogy as a whole, the second book in the series fell a bit flat for me.

Lincoln continues to be the hero we expect from March. Seeing him begin to fight for Whitney and ignore the expectations of his family to chase after who he wants is incredible.

Whitney is evolving, as well, as a character. She is beginning to come to terms with how people see her and getting thicker skin so-to-speak. She definitely begins to stand up for herself more, and I am looking forward to her evolving into another beloved heroine as March continues her evolution in book three.

Guilty as Sin is necessary for this trilogy.  With the second book in the series, March fills in a lot of information regarding the feud and the back story between of the characters be alternating between the past and the present with the use of flashbacks and alternating points-of-view.  The relationship also develops, and readers can see March lay the groundwork for developments in book three, although I am sure there will be surprises along the way. In true Meghan March fashion, readers are left with a cliff hanger for the ages with a surprise revelation that will be impacting the lives of everyone involved.

Overall, Guilty as Sin is an enjoyable read. The characters are growing and evolving, and the plot serves to further develop that conflict and relationship between the families.  For me, it just lacked that all consuming feeling that usually comes with a March novel.  It is still well written with interesting characters and smoking chemistry between the Lincoln and Whitney. Even though it didn’t hit the mark for me, I am excited to see where she takes us in book three.

#NewRelease “Keeping Him” by Kennedy Fox

KEEPING HIM

BISHOP BROTHERS Book 4

By Kennedy Fox

Release Day: Sept 20


Musings…

3 Friend to Lovers CROWNS

While I love Keira and Jackson and the whole Bishop clan, this story fell flat for me. There are moments that I love – the epilogue, the letters, the flashbacks. All perfect. Each delicious moment together, the kind of love they foster is special, the kind of real forever love we hope to find in life, but the journey they take to get their didn’t have the magic I was anticipating.

Keria and Jackson are in the whole series, so I personally felt like I knew a lot about them walking into the story. Still, there is a considerable amount of time devoted to the “before” the wedding moments. I felt like I was reading summaries of the other books a bit with some more information being given from Jackson and Keira’s perspectives. I wanted this before to be shorter and to have more after. I wanted the angst of the fallout from the wedding. I wanted to see them fight to be together.  I know they had been separated for 15 years, but the come together happened a bit too seamlessly for me.

Trent’s character is also unexpected. With how often we see him in the previous books, there should have been some kind of ground work laid about his character. There are tons of instances of foreshadowing in Keeping Him, but it seemed so out of character for what he know of him from the previous books. I would have been completely okay with his change in character if there would have been some type of inclination of what was to come in this book.

Although this book didn’t live up to my personal expectations, the Bishop brothers will, without a doubt, be a favorites series. The family feeling, the simplicity of living and loving also makes my heart warm, and I have truly come to love this family through these four books.

Wicked Wedding, an all-new sexy standalone novel,

from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett is LIVE!


WickedWeddingCoverBW.jpg

Synopsis:

It all started with a wedding…

Well, three weddings, to be exact. The one that happened, the one that went up in flames, and the one nobody saw coming.

Andrew Collings has seen a lot of things living in Vegas. Hell, he’s done a lot of things. But one thing he’s never witnessed is a beautiful brunette, hitchhiking her way into the city, wearing a wedding dress. Until now, that is.

Brynne Adams is running away from a broken heart. She expected a lot of things from her wedding day but finding photos of her fiancé and maid of honor and best man in a compromising position wasn’t one of them. She most certainly never imagined that she’d end up marrying the handsome stranger that rescued her from the side of the road that day.

Andrew and Brynne’s quick nuptials may have been the result of a drunken joke, but they soon realize that love can be found in the most unlikely of places if you just stop and take a chance.

* Wicked Wedding is the fourth STANDALONE NOVEL in the LEFT AT THE ALTAR series in a collaboration of six New York Times Bestselling Authors: J. S. Scott, Ruth Cardello, Raine Miller, Sawyer Bennett, Minx Malone, and Melody Anne.

Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric Hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns.

It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybelinger on her face a second too long.

Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly leashed emotions. And neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face.

No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood, at all.

Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist.

The medicine man.

He thought getting a second chance at life was difficult, but resisting the spark he feels with her will test all of his strength.

FULL REVIEW TO COME THIS WEEK

Synopsis:

The night I’m released from prison, she’s in my bed.
It’s been eight years since I touched a woman, and the Native American beauty is half-dressed, beaten, bruised, and devastatingly exquisite.

We’re toxic together, but we want the same things. Blood. Vengeance.
Violent relief in a warm body.

Beneath her touch, I’m alive.
Against her skin, I’m redeemed.
Buried inside her, I forget the past.
Until the past takes her from me.

Prison made me cold, but losing Raina makes me cruel. Ruthless. Unforgiving.
I killed before. For her, I’ll kill again.
I’ll end this once and for all or die in my boots.

#BlogTour “The Truth About Us” by Aly Martinez

The conclusion to the heart-stopping Truth Duet by Aly Martinez just went live!

Today we are celebrating the release of the second book in The Truth Duet by Aly Martinez. The Truth About Us is now available! The first book in the duet, The Truth About Lies, is available too and both titles can be read for FREE as part of KindleUnlimited!


Musings…

5 I’ll Give Her the Moon CROWNS

Aly Martinez delivered an epic ending full of healing and vengeance, but more importantly hope.

The way Aly Martinez crafted these characters is what really drives this story. The heartbreak they endure, the strength to survive, and perseverance to hope for a better future pulls readers into their journey. The family they get at the end not only shows that family is about more than blood relationships but about care and compassion and sympathy. Seeing their HEA is absolutely everything I ever wanted and worth the hardships they endure throughout the two books.

This journey is a bit more low key. It is story of grief and redemption, but most importantly I found this to be a book about strength. These characters endure immense misfortunes. They struggle through violence and crime and do they best they can to help as many people as they can. It is a story of good hearts in a broken and dark world, but they never break or give up. They are the shining light in a depraved world. There are moments of suspense and danger, but at the end of it, all I felt is happiness and satisfaction with the journey.

This has been my favorite duet from Aly Martinez. It has the sex that steams up your kindle, the suspense that has you turning the pages, the characters to love! It is such an epic ride! I can’t wait to return with more of the characters.

Kennedy Ryan continues to astound me with her complex and dynamic characters, her exquisite prose, and plots that continually make me examine my assumptions and preconceived notions on life. Her books appeal to my literary soul and my romantic heart, truly making her books must reads no matter what topic she chooses to tackle.

One of the attributes of Kennedy’s writing is that she writes honest characters, filled with flaws. Are they always likable? I think so. But do you always like everything they do? No. Jared and Banner make a lot of mistakes in this book, but their actions after and their acceptance of responsibility make their transgressions more understandable, more relatable, and on a level more acceptable. There are no justifications made, no excuses thrown out, and, as a result, these two earned my respect as a reader.

Jared, specifically, isn’t your typical hero. He has no honest and honorable goals when it come to Banner. Is he honorable in all other aspects of his life? Yes. But when it comes to Banner, he walk through any wall or person to get to her and have her. This should turn me off. I know this; however, his honesty and tenacity when it comes to her lured me in. He is consumed by her and makes no excuses for it. He has one line of vision and sole focus, and it is HOT! What really solidified the deal for me, though, is his respect for Banner. She is the one person he will even amend his goals for. He loves her and wants to nurture he she is, and Jared sacrifices for her in a way that kills him but preserves who she is at her core. SWOON!! Seriously! A man who puts his woman first, choking down his own issues and pride. It just doesn’t get better than Jared!

Kennedy Ryan knows how to write a heroine, and Banner, I dare say, is my favorite Ryan heroine. She is real in everything she does. From her insecurities to her intelligence, women will resonate with her. She is driven, successful, and a hard worker. She has risen to the top in a male dominated work force through grit and determination and hard work. She is smart and shows it, refusing to hide to placate men who are afraid of her strengths. She has the biggest heart and compassion of any character I can recall. Of course she is gorgeous, but what makes her more beautiful is her flaws. Her insecurities make her relatable and real. Her issues with her own weight I have felt. Her healthy way of dealing with it and the self love she cultivates is a message every woman needs to hear. There will be readers that don’t like her for the mistakes she makes, but her mistakes make her an authentic character, because people make mistakes. It was what happens in the aftermath that shows true character, and Banner’s character is solidified in what follows her indiscretion! She is truly a class act, and I adore her.

With all Kennedy Ryan novels, there is a bit of heavy, and Block Shot has that. It is l, however, no where near what some of her previous books are. This is light in the Kennedy Ryan world. That doesn’t mean there aren’t hot topic issues addressed. I don’t think it would be a Ryan book if readers were seeing the world through shades of gray, and Banner and Jared, once again, make readers see situations are always so black and white. My preconceived ideas on topics addressed aren’t so clear cut anymore. Love can’t always be contained. But this is more than a story about their love. It is an examination of feminism, of equality in the workplace, of compassion, and if staying true to who you are. Trust me, their love is steamy and consuming and inspiring, like all of her couples are, but it is more. With Kennedy, it is always more.

Kennedy Ryan continues to be a one-click author for me because she challenges me as a reader. She makes me examine my ideas about humanity. And let’s be real, she gives me hot heroes and fierce heroines with consuming love stories. Her books leave me feeling like love can conquer all the hate in the world and inspires me to be a better, more understanding person. When I get that and an epic romance, it can never be wrong .

Synopsis:

A brand new sizzling standalone contemporary romance by New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

It was supposed to just be a quick trip to Manhattan.

My best friend was heartbroken. She needed support, and I needed inspiration.

I hoped to love the city. Bustling. Crazy. Inspiring New York.

But I ended up at the airport, heading home in the same condition that I arrived.

In a rut.

Add to all that, missing my flight and losing my laptop—the laptop, where the Best Love Story Ever sat on my hard drive.

Enter Noah Steele. Eerily familiar. Movie star. Heartthrob. Sultry romeo with bedroom eyes.

(But we’re not going there.)

He missed his flight too.

Noah is so smoldering, lip-bitingly hot, he’s not taken seriously as an actor, and is struggling to launch his career in New York.

He’s only ever had superficial girlfriends, so he’s having trouble showing true passion in his acting—the same challenge I’m having with this book.

When we met, we didn’t know that our connection would bring us the change we’d been craving.

That we’d be the very thing the other needed and didn’t know.

Each other’s muse.

*This book is a complete standalone and no previous reading is necessary to enjoy.
