#CoverReveal “The Long Way Home” by Jasinda Wilder

The Long Way Home - CR

Cover Reveal TLWH

⛵⛵⛵

Title: The Long Way Home

Series: The One Series

Author: Jasinda Wilder

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: June 30, 2017

Cover Artist: Okay Creations


TheLongWayHomeSynopsis:

I need you, Ava.

I am desperate. For you. For touch. For a kiss. For the scrape of your hand down my stomach. For the slide of your lips across my hipbone. The sweep of your thigh against mine in the dulcet, drowning darkness. For the warm huff of your breath on my skin and the wet suck of your mouth around me and the building pressure of need reaching release…I am mad with need.

Wild with it.

I cannot have you. I have lost you, as I have lost myself.

And so I go in search. Of myself, and thus the man who might return to you, and take you in his arms.

I loathe each of the thousands of miles between us, but I cannot wish them away, for I hope at the end of my journey I shall find you. Or rather, find myself, and thus…you. Myself, and thus us.

I am taking the long way home, Ava.

***

Christian,

I’m losing my mind, and I don’t know how to stop it. I shouldn’t be writing to you, but I am. I’m friendless, loveless, and lifeless. You’re out there somewhere, and still you’re all I really have. I hate my reliance and dependence on you, emotionally and otherwise, and that reliance is something I’m coming to recognize. I hate that I can’t hate you as much as I want to. I hate that I still love you so much.

I hate that there’s no clear solution to our conundrum. Even if we could forgive each other, what then?

I hate you, Christian. I really do.

But most of all, I don’t.

It’s complicated.

Complicatedly (still) yours,

Ava

My musings…

Strong Enough couldn’t have been any more perfect. Melanie Harlow and David Romanov not only showed how brave and strong people must be to be embrace who they are but also to show the world who they love. Maxim and Derek’s story is inspirational and filled to the brim with love, of others and of self, and I couldn’t put it down!

Full review on Tuesday.

Synopsis:

I wasn’t looking for Derek Wolfe.

I wasn’t looking for anybody. All I wanted was to start a new life in America. But when I found myself stranded here with no place to go, he came to my rescue, offering me a place to stay.

He’s smart, successful, and sexy as hell—I can barely sleep knowing he’s right down the hall. And when the chemistry between us explodes one night with fierce, fiery passion, it’s hard to deny there’s something real between us.

But he does.

He says he was drunk. He says it was a one-time thing. He says he’s not into guys and what we did meant nothing.

He’s lying. Because it happened again, and again, and again. And it’s better every time.

I know we could be good together, and I want the chance to try, but I’m done hiding. If he’s not strong enough to admit the truth, I’ll have to be strong enough to walk away.

#ReleaseBlitz & #MBReview “All I Am” by Jodi Ellen Mapas

ALL I AM: DREW’S STORY (A THIS MAN NOVELLA) by Jodi Ellen Malpas

(June 18, 2017; Forever Yours ebook; $2.99)


 My musings…

4 Chain my Heart CROWNS

Jodi Ellen Mapas has delivered a novella that follows a man balancing two separate worlds, sex club and home life and bachelor and daddy. When his worlds collide, he struggles to find a new balance, but his struggle is one filled with emotion and a ton of self-realization.

Drew is a man who showcases no emotion. He likes to have sex, and sex alone, which is what draws him to Hux. Although he is devoid of emotion with what should be an intimate act, readers will love him because of who he is outside of the club. When they get to see him with his friends and Georgia, they get to see a real man. Plus, when he finally gets hit with feelings, readers get to see him fall, and does Raya make his trip a swirl of emotions. She is worth it, though, and she encapsulates all the attributes he needs in a woman to fill what he needs in all avenues of his life, helping him to find that balance, proving that, yet again, finding that one person out there who gets you and your desires is possible and makes life that much better.

I love these secondary characters. Not having read any books in the series before this one, I can say that the author still gives readers enough glimpses of them to understand their stories and see the friendship between the three men. Plus, Georgia is the cutest, and her desire for adventure at the end of the novel is too sweet.

This novella is well paced for a believable romance. The meet is set up that immediately places them in each other’s path, making their instant connection believable, and they way in which she continues to throw them together matches with their characterization. The fight between them to resist each other brings tension to the story, and it seems like everything possible in Drew’s life is attempting to get in their way of happiness, only elevating the will they won’t they get together tension. The anticipation doesn’t let up until the end, where balance is finally found.

As I said before, I haven’t read any of the books before this novella, and I didn’t need to do so. Jodi Ellen Malpas does an amazing job giving readers the background they need without summarizing the past novels. Readers will still be able to invest in Drew’s story and enjoy the journey. My only warning is that it will make you want to go back and read the previous stories because I know that I am intrigued by the previous couples. Continue Reading

#BlogTour “Hot Cop” by Laurelin Paige and Sierra Simone

“Filthy, fun, and filled with heart. Hot Cop is going on my re-read shelf.”

–Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Hot Cop, an all-new sexy, standalone from New York Times Bestseller Laurelin Paige and USA Today Bestseller Sierra Simone is now LIVE!!!

Hot Cop by Laurelin Paige & Sierra Simone
Genre: Contemporary Romance


 My musings…

5 HOT CROWNS

Hot Cop by Laurelin Paige and Sierra Simone is fantastic from the very first chapter.  I love the characters and their journey to their happily-ever-after.  Plus, it has that signature steam that readers would expect from the writing duo that published P*rn Star.

Readers will really enjoy both of the characters.  Livia is a heroine who is pursuing the future she wants without a man.  She doesn’t need one and is confident enough in herself to know she can pursue her future on her own.  She also has some real gumption to ask Chase for what she wants from him.  Just as enjoyable as Livia is Chase.  He encapsulates the perfect hero who has just enough confidence and cockiness to be attractive.  Of course, he has serious skills in the bedroom and a mouth that spews sin, but it is so good. The two of them ignite from the very first time they are together, and it is HOT.

Just like their previous novel, these authors take a lust filled, steamy romance and make it more.  With each passing chapter, the reader sees the inevitable happening.  They see the emotions begin to infiltrate their contractual relationship, as the dual point-of-view allows for the reader to see inside the minds of both Chase and Livia.  The development from lust to love is developed at a pace that makes it believable, and it will have readers falling in love with these two characters and their relationship.  The conflict and resulting reconciliation is authentic and keeps the love of the characters in tact, and readers will absolutely love the resolution of the story.  It is perfect.

I love these two writers.  The heat and love the create in each romance, whether it is a hot cop or an adult entertainer, is so entertaining to watch, and I hope they continue to create these steamy romances together.

#ExcerptReveal “My Best Friend’s Ex” by Meghan Quinn

MY BEST FRIEND’S EX by Meghan Quinn is live! ONE-CLICK now!


Synopsis:

When I found an eviction notice taped on my apartment door, I had two options: find a comfortable cardboard box to call home, or move in with Tucker Jameson.

Seeing that cardboard makes me feel itchy, I chose the latter. Which shouldn’t be that big of a deal Tucker is one of my good friends. And because he’s still pining after his ex-girlfriend and I’m trying to finish my nursing degree, there is nothing to worry about in the romance department, making my last semester an easy one to conquer.

Boy, was I wrong.

Rules are set, dinners are made, conversations are had, and a shirtless, swoony roommate walks around in nothing but a pair of black briefs, ruining me for every other man.

Before I know it, I turn into a panting, lust-filled woman begging for Tucker to kiss me, touch me, and show me exactly what is hiding under those briefs.

But with great orgasms, comes great consequences.

Tucker might be my friend and roommate but he’s also my best friend’s ex-boyfriend, making him completely off-limits. At least that’s what my brain is telling me, my heart is speaking an entirely different language.

#ReleaseBlitz “Bad Penny” by Staci Hart

“Witty, sexy as all hell, and addictive like no other, Staci Hart BRINGS IT with Bad Penny.”

-T.M. Frazier, USA Today Bestselling Author

SBPRBanner-BADPENNY-RB.jpg

Bad Penny, an all-new romantic comedy standalone from Staci Hart is now LIVE!


 My musings…

5 Bad CROWNS

Bad Penny might be my absolute favorite Staci Hart novel I’ve read.  Not only does it comprise great writing and pacing, but it also has my favorite type of heroine.  Her entire persona made the novel that much better.

Penny is fiercely independent, even if it comes from a place of insecurity.  I love her dedication to who she is with little to no apology.  I love that she has no shame in her behavior, in her desires, and in her opinions.  Her insecurities and her unwillingness to put herself, emotionally, on the line is at times frustrating, making the reader sympathetic to Bodie, but part of Penny’s charm is that she isn’t that perfect heroine readers often encounter in romance novels.  She is crazy, messed up, and flawed, and this makes her one of the best heroine’s encountered in a long time.

Bodie really is the best hero for Penny.  He is compassionate and easy going, the perfect heart ninja.  He knows and understands Penny.  He works his way into her heart without scaring her.  Although some may perceive him as being weaker for conforming to what she wants, he does stand his ground with her when she pushes him too far.  This makes Bodie that perfect blend of understanding and dominant.

The chemistry between these two is electric, first physically then emotionally. The conversations between the two is easy, and it really leads to showcasing how these two are more than the lust filled encounters they are at the beginning.

The pacing of the plot in this story is perfect.  Staci Hart begins the relationship with these two following the rules Penny sets up.  It is steamy and lust filled hook-ups, but it quickly becomes mores.  These casual conversations with each other in the moments after being intimate are what really solidify their relationship as something more, something real. The conflict of the story is one that readers would expect based on the characterization developed by the author, but the falling action was brutal and a little unexpected in regards to the character reaction.  The resolution, however, is perfect.

Staci Hart continues to be a one-click author.  I love how her stories are all different and unique.  I never get the canned trope or same story-line from her, and I absolutely cannot wait for more. Continue Reading

Preservation (The Walshes #7)

By: Kate Canterbary

Releasing June 13, 2017

Vesper Press


Synopsis:

Two lonely hearts.

Just once, she’d like to be someone’s first choice.

She’s strong-willed and spunky, but she’s left picking up the pieces from her ex’s lies and manipulations, and daydreaming about taking a scalpel to his scrotum.

Flying under the radar is what he does best.

He’s laid-back and loyal, but he wants the most off-limits woman in his world, and nothing will ever make that a reality.

An arrangement of mutual benefit.

Two months, four dates.

Five, if things go well.

Five at the most.

But possibly six.

Definitely no more than six dates.

Only the appearance of a romantic relationship is required, and they expect nothing more from their time together. There will be none of those benefits involved.

One wild weekend.

After waking up in bed together—very naked and even more hungover—the terms and conditions of their arrangement no longer apply. Now they’re faced with something riskier than exposing their fake relationship: letting go of the past and zipping up the future.

Some things have to fall apart before they can be put back together.

#ReleaseBlitz “The Last Guy” by Tia Louise and Ilsa Madden-Mills

“The best and only way to kick off summer, devouring The Last Guy and then doing it all over again because it’s just that good.”

— #1New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken

SBPRBanner-TLG-ReleaseBlitz

THE LAST GUY By Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise

Publication Date: June 12th

Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy


 My musings…

5 Be My Last CROWNS

The Last Guy by Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise is exactly what I needed to get out my reading slump.  This office romance is fun, romantic, and so steamy.  It really is the perfect romantic comedy.

Rebecca and Cade are so incredibly good together.  From the moment readers meet them, the chemistry between them is palpable.  As the novel progresses, the two quickly move from lust driven contact to real feelings.  As they grow as a couple, readers to get to witness who they are as individuals. Rebecca or Stone, as Cade affectionately calls her, is the epitome of a heroine I love.  She likes to eat, isn’t rail thin, and is driven to succeed at work. When she hits speed bumps, she drives right over them and keeps her head high, and I love every attribute of this heroine.  Cade earns the devotion of the readers through his care of Rebecca.  He is so much more than the retired NFL star.  His acceptance and compassion for his brother, his obvious love for his mother, and his endless support of Stone will have readers swooning. It is these two together that make this story so fantastic.

The secondary characters, particularly Trent and Chas are amazing.  They provide great comedic relief, and I love who they are as characters.  They embrace who they are and support the people they love, and their characters just brought so much life and vibrancy to the story.

The Last Guy moves quickly from lust to love; the authors, however, make this transition believable.  They show glimpses of Cade and Stone sharing themselves with each other.  Through these conversations it is clear that their relationship is becoming so much more than physical fulfillment.  It quickly becomes apparent what the conflict of the story is going to be, but the motivation behind this conflict is unexpected.  When it is exposed, I was shocked and laughed over the events that occurr.  The story really comes together at the end when the authors bring together the HEA that is the stuff of dreams.  It is not only the ending readers will want, but it is an ending that is so fitting for all of the characters involved.

Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise have created something special here.  The Last Guy will have readers laughing and swooning, never wanting Stone and Cade’s story to end.  Hopefully, this won’t be the last we see from these two writers.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

#ReleaseBlitz & #MBreview “Dirty Talker” by Piper Rayne

Title: DIRTY TALKER
Series: Single Dads Club #2
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: Romantic Comedy 18+
Release Date: June 12, 2017


 My musings…

4 Cupcake Crack CROWNS

Dane from Dirty Talker by Piper Rayne is probably as delicious as a cupcake from the Mad Batter.  Even from book one, this man intrigued me with his cocky swagger and boyish behavior, and he did not disappoint in this book.

Dane is so much more than the immature, sometimes arrogant behavior he presents.  This story shows readers the heart behind the man, and his revelations and growth about himself throughout the novel really turn him into a hero readers can love.  The fact that he goes through great lengths to win his lady over just about had me swooning.  They weren’t just grand gestures, but they really show how much he cares, how much attention he pays to those he loves, and how sweet he is underneath the swagger.  The reason for this change is one Ava Pearson.  She is the one that shows him that he can have the variety with the monogamy, that he can be happy with one person, and that there is more to this life than just sleeping around.  She is basically the quintessential heroine to turn the requisite playboy around.

The pacing of this novel moves pretty quickly from enemies to lust-filled partners.  There is the standard agreement that occurs and the inevitable emotions that see to get tangled up, and although the plot follows the typical trope for this type of romance, the characters, particularly Dane are what make this story so much fun to read. The ending is also pretty epic in terms of groveling and reconciliation.

Piper Rayne has created yet another romantic comedy that is filled with heart and humor, but what I love about this series and the one before it, is that they also create a community with their characters, making me always excited for the next book in the series of standalones. Continue Reading

Synopsis:

I washed ashore in a little lake town.
A place where everyone knows everyone, yet…
No one knows me.
I don’t know me.
If a woman doesn’t know her own name, does she really exist?
I don’t know my natural hair color, my birthdate, or where I live.
I am invisible.
To everyone, to everything, even to myself.
Except to him.
I see the recognition deep in his stare, the way it lingers on my face as if I’m a puzzle he’s desperate to put together.
I just want answers, the truth… knowledge.
His lips are sealed. Still, his eyes beguile me.
I can’t trust anyone, not even myself. Someone wants me dead, the same someone who tried to bury me in a watery grave.
They’ll come for me again… I won’t know their face.
I don’t even know mine.
I am amnesia.
