BE MINE by Jen Frederick is live!

Free with your KU subscription or 99c for a limited time. 


Synopsis:

At twenty years old, Lainey Wilson has made enough mistakes for a lifetime. She’s gotten herself knocked up by a cruel, uncaring man, lost her home, and found herself outside of a ramshackle bar with a crying baby and a broken purse.

When Nick Jackson, the Mustangs’ new rookie quarterback, swoops in like her savior, all she wants to do is fall into his arms. There’s just one problem… she’s sworn off football players and men for good.

He’s charming, eager, and sexy as hell, but Nick’s not the man for her. No matter what her body says.

Besides, she’s got bigger problems to fix such as how she’s going to feed her child, where she’s going to lay her head, and how to stay hidden from her ex. There’s no room for flirtation, a hand on the small of her back, or even the way he makes her daughter smile.

Nick Jackson isn’t in her plan now or ever.

Right?

#NewRelease “Gravel Road” by Stephie Walls

Title: Gravel Road

Author: Stephie Walls

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: September 28, 2018


Musings from Tricia…

Four CROWNS

As soon as I started reading Randi and Austin’s story, I knew I was going to thoroughly enjoy it. There was something about this author’s writing style, her descriptive language and her humour that drew me in and gave me such a good feeling. It made me happy and I was hooked. I was so pleased it was written in dual point of view too, as it’s my favourite. Call me nosy, but I find it much more interesting getting into the heads of both characters, rather than everything being one sided.

Ms Walls’ writing was flawless and chapters slipped easily between the past and present, from their carefree childhood and teenage years, hanging out with friends, to their adulthood and all the hard work and responsibility that brings. Inseparable since they were children, Randi and Austin believe their future is mapped out for them. Their love for each other shines bright throughout this book. However, it’s all fun and games until one innocent act of rebellion and a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, brings their world crashing down around them. It’s unclear through most of the story what brought about this turn of events, although we get close to a reveal on a number of occasions. This author’s storytelling ensured that I felt sympathy towards Randi, without actually knowing the full facts. What was clear was that something dramatic had to have occurred to make her change her life so completely. However, when the truth did finally come out, I was shocked at the circumstances and the vitriol thrown her way. It didn’t seem to make much sense and it didn’t sit well with me. If I could have changed anything, it would have been this. I was disappointed that we didn’t get to see the perpetrator make amends and weren’t privy to any acts of contrition on their part. This was just a slight grumble in what otherwise really was an excellent read for me. An emotional storyline with well written, well rounded supporting characters, I would certainly recommend Gravel Road for those lovers of second chance romance.

#NewRelease “Not Until You” by Corinne Michaels

NUY-SBPRBanner-RB.jpg

Not Until You by Corinne Michaels
Publication Date: October 1st, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Sarah’s Musings…

Corinne Michaels has penned my favorite novel from the this series of standalones, and it is solely because of Nicole. There are few times when a heroine makes me fall in love with a book, but this one did.

Nicole is the best friend I want to have. She is crazy and has zero filter, but, oh, how she made me laugh. I never knew what she would say or do, but that is the fun part. That is what kept me on my toes. She also has the honest when it comes to sex, and I love how she embraces her desires and ignores society’s attempts to make women feel like that can’t or shouldn’t talk about sex. As the novel progresses, though, we see the layers beneath the loud and often brash candor of Nicole. Readers get to see a woman who has been betrayed and so doesn’t trust love easily. We see a woman who protects those who have been lucky enough to earn her love fiercely. We see a woman who at the end of the day just wants to be loved unconditionally and for who she is.

Callum is just…HOT. Seriously! I don’t think I can resist a British hero. What makes me all swoony, though, is the way he loves my new fictional best friend. He never tries to change her or tame her. He loves the craziness that spews from her mouth. He also courts her with everything he has. He knows what he wants and attacks it with vigor. I absolutely adore him in every way.

The one thing that I have loved most about this series is the friendship among the four woman. I love seeing how they support each, call each other on their crap, and love each other as sisters. Everyone woman needs a group in their corner like that, and I have come to love their relationship as much as the romances between the hero and heroine.

I LOVE this story. The pacing, the chemistry, the revelations for the next book are all spot on. I read this book with a huge smile on my face, laughing and having my heart flutter. It was just pure romance perfection.

#BlogTour “Perversion” by T.M. Frazier

T.M. Frazier sucked me in from the very first page and then slayed me with the end of Perversion. This trilogy is EPIC!

— Meghan March, New York Times bestselling author

PERVERSION, book one in the Perversion Trilogy from USA Todaybestselling author T.M. Frazier is live!


Musings…

5 BROTHERHOOD CROWNS

TM FRAZIER has crafted a world that rivals her King series. Filled with host of criminals readers will love and a plot that will have them flipping the pages as fast as they can, Perversion will entrap readers in the sexy and dangerous journey of Tricks and Grim.

Grim is just the hero I love from Frazier. A criminal to his core, a ruthless killer, Grim feels nothing. Not a thing. Except he does. The boy we meet and the man he becomes feels, and with each glimpse into his mind we fall for this man, this criminal. Because, as with most of Frazier’s heroes, there is a sense of honor and integrity to his characterization. He is lethal in every single way: to your mind, to your heart, and to your body. Readers won’t be able to resist him.

My heart broke for Tricks. However, she isn’t weak. Tricks’s endurance and ability to pick herself up off of the floor left me in awe of this heroine. Her constant concern for others, often putting herself in harms way to protect others, is one of her defining attributes and one of the characteristics readers will love most about her. Her road isn’t easy, and readers hearts will break mor just for her but with her.

Like her other series, TM Frazier gives readers a whole cast of characters to love. The gangs, the Bedlam Brotherhood, and Grim’s family are just everything. I enjoyed my time with them as much as I enjoyed my time with the main characters.

This story will grip you from the opening pages. With the prologue, Frazier pulls readers in with the status of Lacking, FL and the impending eruption of violence. Then she throws readers back into the past and begins the development of Tricks and Grim. From this point on, readers see the evolution from kid to adult (in experience and not so much age). This is book one of a trilogy, so a good portion of Perversion sets up the world, the characters and the conflict of the series. Normally, this would bore me, but this world consumed me and left me dying for more with ending I didn’t see coming and questions I need answers to RIGHT NOW.

Frazier continues to be one of my automatic one-click dark romance writers. Her antiheroes are deplorable and lovable in equal parts, and her stories are the perfect mix of suspense, danger, and romance. She never disappoints, and Perversion surpass my expectations! A must read!

Not Until You by Corinne Michaels
Publication Date: October 1st, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance


NotUntilYou_FrontCover

Synopsis:

I have two rules in life:
1. No relationships, falling in love or attachments.
2. No sleeping with clients of my interior design firm.

Since the last guy turned out to be married, they’ve been easy to follow.

Until him.

Callum Huxley is a ridiculously sexy Brit, and the connection we have the moment our eyes lock scares the ever-loving hell out of me. Thank God I came to my senses before going back to his hotel where I would’ve ended up naked, panting, and unable to forget him.

Thinking I walked away from that night unscathed was stupid. Sure enough, at the biggest meeting of my career waits the CEO of Dovetail Enterprises—him. It might be the most embarrassing moment of my professional life. And breaking my no-client rule might just be the hottest moment of my personal life.

Learning to trust has never felt so good, but falling has never hurt so bad.

#NewRelease “Manik” by Amo Jones

‘Manik, an all-new standalone Dark Romance from Amo Jones is Available Now!


Synopsis:

I’m Beatrice Kennedy, but everyone calls me Beat. I live a low-key life, fresh out of college and drifting from town to town until I find my home.

I love music, and how it stirs even the deepest and untouched parts of your soul. Depending on what you choose to listen to, would depend on what it touches. It’s the drug we all damper in, only different strains. My strain is Jazz. The smooth instrumental strums that take over me. The sound of cigar smoke, bourbon and an old dusty fedora hat. My strain wasn’t rap, and it sure wasn’t laced with some A-class shit like murky blue eyes casted down from the Lord and the Devil’s handcrafted smile. I knew who he was—the whole world did. One fateful night set off a chain of events, events that no one was coming back from. You can’t save people who don’t want to be saved. You can’t pull them up from the ocean when they’ve latched themselves to an anchor. Love was my anchor, destruction was the water that was drowning me, and the rope that was so tightly clamped around my ankles, was woven with the lyrics of Aeron Romanov-Reed, also known as, ‘Manik. He steals hearts from all around the world, but one night, he stole something that wasn’t his to steal.

Me.

#BlogTour “Strong” by Kylie Scott

Strong (A Stage Dive Novella)

Kylie Scott


Musings…

4 Coming Home CROWNS

The Stage Dive series is my favorite Kylie Scott series. I loved every single story and every single character, so this book very much felt like a coming home.

I loved the dynamics and interactions of all the characters. The snippets with the girls and the men are just perfect. It reminded me of all the reasons I love this series.

Sam and Martha are a fun couple. I love how he pushed past her sarcastic and biting exterior to get below the offers belligerent nature. It was amazing to see this villainous character get some redemption and her HEA.

I do wish that there would have been a bit more conflict.  There didn’t seem to be any fight to the attraction or obstacle to overcome for this couple. Overall though,  I loved the idea and topic of family and that Martha finally came home and found her happy ending with the purple she loved.

This was such a joy to read. It reacquainted me with a cast of characters and I adore, and solidified why I love this series so much.

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.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Photographer: Periwinkle Photographer


Synopsis:

He’s a player.

He plays the bass with expert fingers. He plays women with intoxicating charm. And he’ll play me with the ease of a virtuoso.

Who better to teach me to play than the master himself?

I’m his model student, front row, pencil sharp. Pick up lines? I’ve got them. Free drinks? By the dozen. Kissing? Let me grab my chapstick.

But the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that there’s so much I don’t know. Like why his touch sets off a chain reaction straight to my nethers. Or how I’m certain each kiss is the best I’ll ever have, until the moment his lips take mine again.

There’s so much I don’t know.

Like the fact that I’m only a bet.

But we are what we are. He’s a player, through and through.

And I’m the fool who fell in love with him.
