#Excerpt “The Chase” by Elle Kennedy

The Chase by Elle Kennedy

Briar U #1

Release Date: August 6, 2018


The Chase (Briar U, #1)Synopsis:

Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.

And that his best friend has a crush on me.

And that I just moved in with them.

Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?

I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?

He knows where to find me.

#CoverReveal “Trailer Park Heart” by Kristen Higginson

Trailer Park Heart by Rachel Higginson

October 23, 2018


Trailer Park Heart by [Higginson, Rachel ]Synopsis:

Trailer park born and raised. It’s my legacy. That’s how my mama lived. And that’s how her mama lived. It’s the life I was born into and it’s the life I swore I would leave the second I was old enough to make it out.

Only legacies have a funny way of sneaking up on you. An innocent decision the night of high school graduation led to a series of complications in my plans to escape.

Seven years later, I’ve resigned myself to this small town and the roots I’m tied to. Nothing could make me leave. And nothing could make me spill the secrets that keep me here.

Until he walks back into town with a chip on his shoulder and a stupid hunch nobody else in town has been smart enough to follow.

Levi Cole is my opposite. Born on the right side of the tracks with family money to spare, he’s the kind of black sheep that can afford to be rebellious—because his family will always pay for his mistakes. He’s also the only living heir to Cole Family Farms, after his brother Logan was killed in duty seven years ago.

He sees something in my life that he thinks he has a right to. But he’s wrong. And obnoxious. And he needs to take his stubborn good looks and that intense way he looks at me and go back to wherever it was he came from.

I know better than to trust men like him. I was born and raised in a trailer park, I know nothing good happens to girls like me—girls with trailer park lives and trailer park hearts. Especially from gorgeous, kind, pigheaded men like him.

#BlogTour “Dominate” by Amy Daws

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Dominate
The Final Harris Brother Duet #2
Series: The Harris Brothers Series #5
Author: Amy Daws
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: July 27, 2018


Musings…

5+ LIVE A LOT CROWNS

HOLY HECK! People this review is going to be a rambling of emotions. I’m all over the place. I couldn’t be happier with the ending of the Harris era that Amy Daws has written, and yet there is a void, a piece of my heart that has been carved into a Harris brother shape that I fear will never ever be repaired. The conclusion to the series is the BEST I have ever read for any series EVER.

Gareth wins the best Harris brother crown (Sorry Booker, Camden, and Tanner). My heart broke for the little boy. I swooned over the man. His love of Sloane and sophie put me under his spell. The devotion we saw throughout the series when transferred to these new characters killed me DEAD. DEAD! His fierce protectiveness is just as sexy as the abs and the V. What really sold me, though, was his evolution as a character. Amy Daws did something masterful with him. His acceptance of the past, his ability to forgive, his devotion to family, and his focus on the important things in life only makes me love this man more than I ever thought I could.

Sloane is still just as lovely as she was in book one. She is fierce and loyal as a mother. Her independence as a female and a mom is inspiring. The way she puts her daughter above herself and at times Gareth speaks to her strength and selflessness. I love her as much as I love him.

This couple is the real deal. Their HEA isn’t easy. It has hardships that many of us in the real world deal with. They do, however, exemplify how real love works. It is about communication and acceptance. It is about being willing to surrender and dominate, to push and pull, support and defend. Their romance is the stuff of real world dreams.

The conclusion to this series is PHENOMENAL. AMAZING. EXQUISITE PERFECTION! Amy Daws gave us everything. She balances giving the final Harris brother the story he deserves with giving fans the ending they needed. We got the crazy family moments with the brothers and Vi, the healing of a family, and the hope of all the good things that will come to the Harris family in the future. As I read the words on the final page, a pang of sadness hit my heart (I’m not going to lie. I’m still feeling it now). I don’t want to leave this family. I want to stay basking in their camaraderie, their love, their family. I want them to be real and adopt me. I just want to stay here in their HEA for all eternity or until I can convince Amy Daws to give us more football players (I smell second generation).

Synopsis:

Spoiled Princess is what he used to call me.

We were an inferno of hate and passion wound up with a dash of chaos.

For four years I watched him mow my lawn.

For four years I watched my friends make fun of him.

For four years I hated myself for wanting him, but even more for the way I treated him.

And then I had him.

For one night, we put all labels away and I spent the best night of my life in his arms.

Then the next day, with my secret night under lock and key, I looked the other way while my friends shamed him.

But now the jokes on me, because the scrawny lawn boy who I secretly loved from afar is now the director of Hollywood’s most exclusive summer camp.

And I’m on his staff.

Now it’s his turn to punish me.

His turn to make me pay.

His turn to take his revenge after years of humiliation.

He’s no longer a boy you can ridicule.

But a college graduate who can have any woman he wants.

I want him to look at me the way he did that one night we had together, but right now

the look in his eyes tells me he’s going to enjoy having me under him for two straight months.

I don’t know where his hatred ends, his passion begins.

All I know is he wants revenge.

And I’m his lucky target.

Closer_Carmen_Jenner_AMAZON.jpg

Synopsis:

Levi Quinn has it all—money, groupies, a panty-melting smile, and a really big d*ck.

At least, he had it all. Until an angry redhead joined the Taint world tour and turned his life upside-down. Levi fell in love with her. His bandmate did too. It did not end well.

Brielle Kagawa doesn’t keep company with rock stars, but when this gifted cellist finds herself kicked out of the Orchestre de Parisan all-expenses-paid gig in the south of France seems too good to be true.

Because it is.

The man footing the bill might be a disorderly drunk, but he has an offer she can’t refuse—stay in his chateau and play for the month. No strings attached.

Yeah right.

The truth about rock stars is that they’re awfully good players, but Levi isn’t the only one who knows how to master a set of strings.

He’s broken-hearted.

She doesn’t have a heart to break.

#BlogTour “The Peer & the Puppet” by B.B. Reid

Mind-blowing. Angst-filled. Drama driven. Riveting. Chatterbooks Book Blog

Angst! Adrenalin! Sexy-times! The Peer and the Puppet had me salivating for MORE! — Tijan NYT Bestselling author

The Peer & The Puppet by B.B. Reid

When Rivals Play (Book One)

Standalone Series


Musings…

5 Need More CROWNS

We might have been waiting for the first book in the When Rivals Play series from B.B. Reid for some time, but it was worth the wait.  Reid delivered filled with some intrigue and mystery and lust filled and I hate you tension that I couldn’t put this down.

Ever is such a jerk, a sexy, delicious, I couldn’t control myself jerk. He is the king of his Prep school and rules over his kingdom. He toys and plays with Four for a good portion of the book, leading her on and pushing her back. He lusts for her but knows he is no good for her at the same time.  Like most teens, he struggles with grabbing what he wants right now with what he knows is good for him or the people he cares about. As the story develops, Reid develops a bit of compassion for Ever as we learn about his past and see him soften towards Four. It will be interesting to see how his story will be threaded with the other three books in the series.

Four is a teen girl who struggles with her attraction to a man who is so vile towards her. There are many times that Ever and his friends cross the line when it comes to Four, but like most girls, she comes back to him when he decides to play nice. Heck, readers can’t blame her because most of them would want to go back to him.  The man oozes power and virility that draws you in. What I did love most about Four, though, is that she doesn’t change who she is or what she is passionate about.  She also has a limit. While Ever does a lot to her, when she has enough, she has no problem coming out swinging and challenging him at every turn.

This story has two plots – a romantic one between Ever and Four that has a ending and suspenseful one that runs over the four books in the series – and B.B. Reid weaves them together seamlessly. The love and hate between Four and Ever and the motivation behind Ever’s actions directly ties to this larger plot. She always begins laying breadcrumbs for readers to see how the overall plot will play out as the series progresses.  What readers are guaranteed to get is tension, chemistry, comedic moments, a fierce heroine, and alpha jerk hero, and host of secondary characters that will keep readers captivated from the first page.

B.B. Reid has delivered one my favorite suspense romances of the year. I was consumed by this world, and when I hit the final page, I was already demanding the next book.  I am not sure that I will never get enough of the When Rivals Play crew.

#CoverReveal “Temptation” by JD Hawkins

Temptation by JD Hawkins

Cover Reveal: August 1st

Release Date: August 29th

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Photographer: Wander Aguiar

Cover Model: Collin


BLURB

What happens when the boy you’re wanted your whole life finally wants you back?

I’m used to taking what I want, being the best at what I do. During the day, I make big bucks as New York’s premiere consultant. At night, I can get any girl I lay my eyes on. I thought this life was what I wanted: working hard and playing harder–with penthouse apartments, luxury cars and bottle service every weekend. After six years in the city, I know I’ve been living like a monster for too long. I need to get my act together. I need to find something real. I need to come home.

LA means family and a fresh start. My parents and my friends who are close enough to be siblings.

And Melina.

Melina is nerdy smart, with a challenging sense of humor and legs for miles. It’s so hard to describe her…enigmatically beautiful. I’m sure there’s a word for it in French. But I know there’s a naughty girl hiding behind that shy smile that I’m dying to drag out.

There was always something between us. I never forgot her laugh, never could get her off my mind. Nobody ever seemed to notice how my body would react when I was near Melina, how much more focused I became—maybe not even Melina herself. But this time it’s different.

The more time we spend together, the more I wonder if there was something there all along. After so long in the fast lane, I don’t know if I can handle settling down. But seeing Melina’s passion, I’m tempted beyond belief.

I have to admit it: temptation is hard to resist.

Release: August 24, 2018


Blurb:

They say one action doesn’t define you.

I killed a man. Stabbed him in the neck and licked the blood off my lips after I did it.

Still, one action doesn’t define you.

I could have called anyone. My father, the Prez of The Fallen MC, our family lawyer, my best friend, Lila, or my brother, King.

I didn’t.

Instead, I called Lionel Danner, the police officer renowned for taking down the Nightstalkers MC. The man who had been my father’s arch nemesis for decades. The man who hated everything I stood for. A man who had disappeared from my life without explanation three years ago.

I called him.

And maybe one action doesn’t define you, but killing a bad man and calling in the good changed my life and it sure as hell changed his.

The third book in the Fallen Men Series. A standalone featuring Harleigh Rose and Officer Lionel Danner.

#BlogTour “Playboy” by Katy Evans

SBPR-BT-BANNER (3).jpg

Playboy by Katy Evans
Publication Date: July 29, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Musings…

4 Silver CROWNS

It felt so good to return to the series that is not only near and dear to my heart but also to the series that made me a fan of Katy Evans.

Cullen is one of the reasons I enjoyed this book so much! He is everything I love in a hero. Sexy and confident, the man doesn’t know how to back down from a challenge whether in the casino or with the woman he wants. He spoils and lavishes Wynn with affection, attempting to meet all her needs. This man loves with reckless abandon and passion. I felt weak in the knees every single time he spoke, and his dirty words made me all toasty warm inside. He gets all the swoons.

Wynn is a great heroine. I enjoyed her character and found her to be relatable. She struggles with a common issue that makes her empathetic, and the way Cullen reacts will only make you love him more. While, I would have liked a little more depth to her character, she is definitely a character you want an HEA for.

This story might be the sexiest of the entire series. Wynn and Cullen waste no time heating up the pages. The sexual tension is unreal, and when they come together the room ignores. Katy Evans makes their relationship much more than physical, and the intimate conversations serves to move them from lust to love. The conflicts and the resolutions aren’t unexpected, yet the story itself and the host of secondary characters make it a steamy and fun read .

I loved coming back to this world and seeing all the characters again. Katy Evans certainly brings the steam and fun with Playboy, and lovers of the series will not be disappointed.

— Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author

BUTTERFACE_RELEASE BLITZ.jpg

Butterface, a hot romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn, is LIVE!


2018-0627 Avery Flynn

Synopsis

Looks aren’t everything.

It’s true. I’m not what most people would call “pretty” and, well, high school was rough. Fast forward ten years and life is good…

Until a bunch of jerks think it’s hilarious to put the “butterface” (AKA me) on a wedding Kiss Cam with the hottest guy ever—and that old humiliation hits hard.

I recognize him immediately. The hottest cop in Waterbury and totally out of my league.

But then he kisses me.

And we totally forget the room, the crowd, everything.

Then he tells everyone we’ve been dating for months.

Soon everything starts to feel too real, from adorable fights over “necessary” tools to fix my broken porch to surviving a free-for-all dinner with his six siblings to picking up where our last kiss left off.

But there’s something he’s not telling me about why he’s really hanging around, and I’m pretty sure it has to do with my mob-connected brothers.

Because this is not a makeover story, and Cinderella is only a fairy tale…

Full Review to come on Tuesday

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

It started as a game.

And my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael.

He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction.

So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep.

My heart, soul, and body weren’t supposed to be part of the deal.

But somewhere between big wins and long nights, my house of cards started to tumble.

I’d given up on love, but the wicked, all-in Cullen Carmichael was upping the ante and wouldn’t stop until he’d won it all.

#BlogTour “Envy” by Rachel Van Dyken

From New York Times Bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken, comes ENVY, a new novella in her Eagle Elite Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!


Musings…

5 Bring Me toLife Crowns

I don’t know what it is about Rachel Van Dyken’s mafia heroes, but I fall desperately in love with every single one of them. The danger, the passion, and the romance just captivates me. I never want their story to end.

Vic, the enforcer and assassin, has a mask of indifference. He has lived a life devoted to the families, but in Envy we see him crack. And like the other couples in the series, particularly the men, when he falls for Renee it is with the passion and heat. He is willing to fight and kill whoever to have her, and that is why I always love her heroes. Because they live a life in danger and hold hands with death, they live and love every single moment with their girl and their family. It is consuming and passionate, and the way we hope to be loved.

Renee, like most of the heroines from this series is strong. Her strength might not be in your face, but her fight for Vic is. She seduces him and goes after what she wants. She stands up to others for him, and she has complete trust and faith in Vic. The way she loves him is her strength, and to see them finally find someone to love them with unyielding devotion is everything a romance should be .

Envy is a novella, so events and love happen rather quickly, and while RVD has the relationship and suspense move at a fast pace, it never felt rushed. There are moments of angst as they can’t be together, there are moments of heat when they do, there is plenty of suspense and mafia violence, and there is a resolution that reminds readers of the family behind the violence. It is novella perfection. Plus, she has piqued my interest in a certain Russian mobster I’m dying for. Give me.

The Eagle Elite series is hands down without a doubt my favorite mafia series. The family she has created is so full of love, each story holds suspense that enthralls me, and the forbidden nature of the couples and the passion that consumes them makes every single one a must read, and this novella isn’t any different.

Can be read as a stand-alone
