#BlogTour “Only Him” by Melanie Harlow


Only Him, an all-new sexy and emotional second chance romance

from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is available NOW!


4 Dreaming CROWNS

Melanie Harlow’s books are the epitome of what a classic romance is – the belief of soulmates, fated couples, and the idea of if it is meant to be it will be. It is often nice to got lost in these romanticized worlds, to escape real life and believe in romance, the ones we dreamed of as little girls and even as adult women.

Dallas and Maren are high school sweethearts that fell apart at the hands of young and reckless choices. Readers will feel bad for the way Dallas is treated by his family, it will allow them to forgive his choices, but outside of this and his love for Maren, I didn’t really feel like I knew much about him. What I did know, I enjoyed. I also like Maren’s character. I love that she forgives. She tries to live a pure and simplistic life, really only wanting a life with the man who broke her heart. Again, though, I’m not sure that I knew much about her except her enjoyment of yoga and wholistic life style and her love of Dallas.

I did enjoy these two together. I got swept away in the quick rekindling of their love, and I was sad and angry when it inevitably fell apart. While I did enjoy the plot, it is predictable. I knew what the story would be from very early on, and it did not deviate. That doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it. I did. Like I said, it is nice to lose yourself in a story that has idealistic romantic beliefs, and Only Him is pure romance.

Readers will be swept away in the fast paced romance, and they will enjoy the characters and the journey. More than that, though, readers are going to be caught up in the idea of living all the moments of your life with all the people you love because their is no other way.

#NewRelease “On the Edge” by CD Reiss


On the Edge, the next intense installment in The Edge Series

from New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss, is available now!



“In Iraq, I promised you a bed of rose petals.” He grabbed my hand under the table, tightening his grip as if he were falling from a precipice and our connection was the only thing saving him from certain death.

“They were beautiful.”

“You smell like apples. Roses were wrong.” There was nothing soft about his tone, but his quiet words were for me alone. “I want everything to be right for you.”

“Caden, look at me.”

I caught his gaze and held it. He was confident. Arrogant. Sure he had a place in the world. And under that was the man who needed me to be that place.

“If I could…” He smiled and shook his head at a silly thought he wanted to dismiss but couldn’t—a contradiction in keeping with the whole man I married. “If I could write my love in the sky, it wouldn’t be big enough. I’d run out of room. I’d fall out of the air trying to say it all.”

He was saying it all.

Every day.

And he was falling out of the sky to do it.

By New York Times Bestselling Author Jen Frederick

Image result for want you jen frederickSynopsis:


I might be only nineteen, but I know what I want. It’s Leka Moore. I don’t care that he took me in when he was barely more than a kid himself. I don’t care that he raised me. I don’t care everyone thinks being with him is wrong. I know we belong together, and the only person I need to convince is him.


I found her in the corner of a dark alley. If I hadn’t taken her with me, she would’ve died that night—or maybe worse. Before I knew it, she became the light in my dark life, the haven from the madness. I watched her grow up. I tried to teach her right from wrong. Now that she’s an adult, I’m feeling things that no good man should ever feel. But then…I’ve never been a good man. I have a chance at redemption by saving her from the greatest danger of all—me.

Tillie Cole


From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.
A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.

Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.

Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.

When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.

Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.

Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.

But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.

A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.

He kept his salacious secret for years. But soon, everyone is going to be reading about it in their morning paper…


William Moore is a long way from home. A farm boy from Oklahoma, he’s now the most well-respected member of the Irish rugby team. But appearances are often deceptive, and Will isn’t the clean-cut, all-American good-guy everyone imagines him to be. He’s got a secret, one that will tarnish his reputation forever.


Joesy Kavanagh is a self-proclaimed mess, but she’s finally get her shi…uh, act together. She’s set her sights on becoming a veterinarian, but there’s one teeny tiny road bump. Her living arrangements are coming to an abrupt end, leaving Joesy homeless and in need of a job to pay her way through college.


What he needs is a companion to keep him on the right path.

What she needs is an apartment with free rent.

Will is convinced Joesy will make the perfect companion, since she’s brutally honest and basically ‘just one of the guys.’ Joesy is convinced she can ensure Will doesn’t succumb to his voyeuristic proclivities by keeping a scrupulous eye on him.

Except, what happens when the varlet is tempted by the voyeur, and vice-versa?!

Perchance something very, very volatile. And vexing.

#NewRelease “Explicit” by Ava Harrison

Title: Explicit
Author: Ava Harrison
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 8, 2018
Release Day Special $2.99

5 Everyone Needs Love CROWNS
I’ve been waiting for Pierce’s book since the Lancaster brothers have been introduced. Ava Harrison delivered a story that is angsty and sexy, completely meeting every expectation I had.

Pierce has been the outcast, the black sheep for the entire series, and so I already had a soft spot for his character. Seeing his journey and finding his HEA, makes his story my favorite of the whole series.m

Lindsey is my favorite type of heroine because she is a fighter. No matter what happens to her she doesn’t let it keep her down, and women like this earn my respect. It also made me feel like she was worthy of my favorite Lancaster brother, an absolute perfect fit.

Ava Harrison took absolutely everything that I love about romances and put it into one story. We have broken and flawed characters and insane chemistry. We connect to them because they want what we all want, to be loved and accepted. Their journey is angsty and emotional and at times gut wrenching, but I couldn’t put it down.

Ava Harrison has delivered her best work to date with a captivating story, a swoon worthy black sheep hero, and and heroine I adore. It is a must read.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

Thea Landry has always known her place in modern-day society. It’s somewhere just above the trash can her mother dumped her in as a newborn but below the class where much comes easy. With her tattered shoes and bargain-bin clothes, her life has never been full of glamour.

So when a rich and charismatic man takes interest, she doesn’t fool herself into thinking their encounter is anything more than a one-night stand. Months later, she’s kicking herself for not getting his phone number. Or his last name. She’s given up hope of seeing him ever again.

Until one day, years later, Logan Kendrick waltzes into her life once more and turns everything she’s built upside down. This time around, she won’t make the same mistake. She’s going to fight to keep him in her life—not for herself.

But for their daughter.

#CoverReveal “The Accidentals” by Sarina Bowen

Accidentals by Sarina Bowen

Coming July 10th


A YA novel from USA Today bestselling author Sarina Bowen.

Never ask a question unless you’re sure you want the truth.

I’ve been listening to my father sing for my whole life. I carry him in my pocket on my mp3 player. It’s just that we’ve never met face to face.

My mother would never tell me how I came to be, or why my rock star father and I have never met. I thought it was her only secret. I was wrong.

When she dies, he finally appears. Suddenly I have a first class ticket into my father’s exclusive world. A world I don’t want any part of – not at this cost. 

Only three things keep me going: my a cappella singing group, a swoony blue-eyed boy named Jake, and the burning questions in my soul.
There’s a secret shame that comes from being an unwanted child. It drags me down, and puts distance between me and the boy I love.

My father is the only one alive who knows my history. I need the truth, even if it scares me.

#CoverReveal “Rush” by Samantha Towle

Release Date: August 7, 2018

Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs


“With the first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the New York Giants select…”

It’s been three years since quarterback Ares Kincaid’s NFL dream came true, and he’s living the high life. The days of cleaning up after his drunk of a father are long gone, and he has no intention of going back.

A car crash and DUI charge meant a lengthy stint in rehab for Arianna Petrelli, and her dream of being a professional artist slips further away when she’s sacked from her position at a gallery. Her need for a job stronger even than her dislike of football, Ari goes to work for her father, the head coach of the New York Giants.

Ares hates alcoholics, which is fine with Ari because she thinks he’s a brainless jock. Yet when Ares rescues Ari from a situation with her ex-boyfriend, an unlikely friendship begins – one that quickly becomes more.

But messing around with the coach’s daughter can only lead to one thing…trouble.

#BlogTour “The Right Stud” by Ilsa Madden-Mills & Tia Louise

Image result for the right stud ilsa madden mills


Title: The Right Stud

Authors: Ilsa Madden-Mills & Tia Louise

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: June 4, 2018

Cover Design: Shanoff Formats

Photo: Wander Aguiar


4 Goat Worthy Crowns

The Right Stud is a sexy and laugh-out-loud romantic comedy. I had a smile on my face the entire time. Everything from the characters to the stories is nothing but pure sexy entertaining goodness.

These characters are pure enjoyment, and their chemistry and banter is top notch.  Not only are their interactions enjoyable outside of the bedroom but it sizzles in the bedroom.  I found myself enamored with these two as a couple.

What ups the ante, though, is that the entire cast of characters is phenomenal.  The comedic timing, the insane hilarity that had me laughing out loud is just pure enjoyment.

The plot of this story is pretty clear from the opening chapters, and it doesn’t deviate from the scripted trope story-line.  The conflict is expected and the resolution is quick.  Even with the evident plot structure, I still thoroughly enjoyed The Right Stud. The cast of characters and dialogue are enough to keep readers entertained.

If you are looking for a light, quick, fun and steamy read, then The Right Stud is the book you should be reading.  It is laugh out loud romantic goodness.

Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.

My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.

I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.

And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination.

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.

One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful.

Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.

Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single incident, I fly off course.

#CoverReveal “Shameless King” by Maya Hughes

Title: Shameless King

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: New Adult Romance

Cover Design: Letitia Hasser, RBA Designs

Release Date: June 28, 2018


A deliciously steamy enemies with benefits romance.

Declan McAvoy. Voted Biggest Flirt. Highest goal scorer in Kings of Rittenhouse Prep history.

Everyone’s impressed, well except one person…

After a blow out in high school, Makenna Halstead and I were happy to never have to cross paths again. Except life has a way of knocking you straight in the teeth with a puck when you least expect it. She hasn’t just returned to my life, she crashed into it like a wrecking ball…into my college kingdom, into my class, and smack dab into the seat next to mine. My new lab partner to be exact.

For years we hated each other… I may be King on the ice, but she is the Ice Queen. She has no problem calling me out, doesn’t back down, and her piercing blue eyes have me picturing more than than just my arms wrapped around her.

Now we’re stuck with each other and there’s no getting around that fact that we have to work together. My hockey career hangs in the balance. Problem? Oh, yeah.

I can’t deny it. I want her. More than I ever thought I could want a woman. I’ve got one semester–only four months–to convince her everything she thought about me was wrong.

Will my queen let me prove to her I’m the King she can’t live without?

Only one way to find out…

#BlogTour “Envy” by Dylan Allen


Envy, an all-new emotional and romantic standalone from Dylan Allen is available NOW!



ENVY by Dylan Allen is raw, real, unfiltered look at life and love. This isn’t an idealistic, romanticized notion of a couple destined for each other. It is a chronicling of what can happen when the world, which is often filled with malignant and malicious people, get their hands on something pure and good. And although this is anguish and despair, Dylan Allen also shows what real and honest love looks like with its acceptance and devotion, showcasing that love really can beat what seems like insurmountable odds.

Could my heart break any more for Graham? How many times can a human be broken, taken advantage of, and beaten down emotionally and physically? I know there will be readers that said he had a choice in what happened to him, and to an extent that is true. Desperation, however, makes people do foolish things, and once you begin down a path it is hard to turn around. Dylan Allen does a phenomenal job making us understand why he does it even though we hate it. Part of the reason it also hurts so much is because readers, like Apollo, know how good Graham is and we know what he could be. His value is so much more than what is on the surface, and we want him to recognize that. His evolution and his release of his envy for others brings him to complete happiness at the end of this book, and I felt elated seeing him finally get the life he deserves.

Apollo, similar to Graham, will have mixed reactions. Some will see her as weak for possibly forgiving Graham time and again, but there is also strength in forgiveness. It takes fortitude to love someone unconditionally and with complete acceptance, and Apollo does this without question. Even when they are apart, her love for him and her desire for his happiness does not fade. She is love incarnate, and she is the reason readers get to see Graham develop into the man he is.

Envy at the beginning is a slow start. But I implore you to push through because it is necessary to understand Apollo and Graham and what motivates their choices throughout the story. Without it, this epic love story loses it steam, and their choices seems foolish and frivolous. And when you get to see them reconnect, it is explosive. The anguish and heartbreak begins, and you will find yourself consumed with Graham and Apollo’s romance, one where fate seems to keep stepping in the way of their destined love.

Dylan Allen’s words will consume you with her beautifully written prose. Her words make you love this story and feel every single moment with Graham and Apollo. It is gut-wrenching, poignant journey of love finding a way in a world filled with vices.

Dirty Exes by Rachel Van Dyken
Publication Date: June 5th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

VanDyken-DirtyExes-24778-CV-FT-V5 (1).jpg

Blaire has never quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to divorce him less than a year later?

Now Blaire is getting even by becoming one half of Dirty Exes, a PI firm fully committed to humiliating cheating jerks. If only the new jerk she’s been hired to uncover wasn’t Jessie Beckett himself.

Exposing Jessie isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy smile. Further complicating matters is Colin, Jessie’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop on Jessie—for a price.

Now caught between two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing to risk it for.

#NewRelease “#1 Lie” by T. Gephart

Today we are celebrating the release of #1 LIE by T. Gephart! This is a contemporary romance, standalone title that you won’t want to miss! You can purchase it on all platforms now. This novel is part of T. Gephart’s #1 Series. Check out some teasers and the book trailer below!


Working in Hollywood meant Jessica Dawson was used to lying. As an assistant to one of the biggest agents in town, biting her tongue and spewing out sugarcoated untruths were an almost daily occurrence. But fabricating alternate realities never spilled into her personal life, until three months ago when she told the biggest lie of all.

While her dear gran lay on her deathbed, Jessica mentioned she’d met her soul mate. It had been Gran’s last wish to see all her grandkids settled down before she went to see Jesus. And as the only one still single, Jessica didn’t have the heart to disappoint her.

No one expected Gran to make a miraculous recovery.

Now, Gran was expecting to meet Jessica’s perfect man at her cousin’s wedding, which meant she needed to find a perfect man fast. Hiring a professional was the only solution.

Enter Dave Larsson, younger brother to one of Hollywood’s elite.

Sexy, funny and just as smoldering hot as his super-famous sibling—he had talent and charm to spare. But most importantly, he was affordable and available.

All she needed to do was haul Dave home, have him meet Gran and the family, then shortly after the wedding, “break up” with him.

It was either that, or admit to her #1 Lie.

Only thing she didn’t plan on was the bigger lie she would need to tell herself when it was time to let him go.

Cry Baby by Ginger Scott

A Contemporary Young Adult Romance

Release day: June 22, 2018


Tristan Lopez is loyal to his brothers. He doesn’t really have a choice, born into a gang that has a chokehold on every kid that roams its streets. He gave his life to them willingly, knowing if he did then one day this kingdom, led by boys drunk with power and ruled by fear, would all be his.

He was loyal through it all. Loyal when prison took his dad away. Loyal when his face was touched by the cold metal of the rival gang’s gun. Loyal even though his mom begged him to run the moment she returned home from rehab.

He thought about becoming someone else. It was hard not to crave the life of a regular 17-year-old. It’s the only reason he stayed in school—to pretend. But he always fell back in line.


Riley Rojas didn’t belong in Tristan’s real world. She should have only been part of the fantasy, one of the many faces he got to pretend with amidst rows of metal chairs and desks and whiteboards with assignments. But there she was, moving boxes from the back of an old pick-up into a house Tristan had shot up on a dare with his friends only a few months before.

Tall enough to look him in the eyes and strong enough to fill his shadow, Riley took up space on his streets, her loud mouth fearless in the face of the gang leaders who terrified everyone else. She pushed Tristan around on the hard court, and she balled better than his friends—better than him

sometimes. She challenged him. She needed him. He liked it. And when her pale blue eyes stared into his, he quit wanting to pretend.

He couldn’t ask her to leave because she’d only dig her heels in deeper. He couldn’t ask because he didn’t want her to go. She was blurring his lines. She was testing his loyalty.

He was falling in love.

And it was going to tear him apart.

#BlogTour “I Flipping Love You” by Helena Hunting

I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting



Helena Hunting is almost always a 5 crown read for me. I just genuinely enjoy her humor, her characters, and the story-lines she creates. Her stories romance me, entertain me, and always make me a bit happier for reading them, and I Flipping Love You did every single one of these things.

Pierce, like most Helena Hunting heroes, is completely delectable. He has just enough confidence to be charming, but I mostly enjoy the way her pursues Rian. He is transparent with her, finds her quirks endearing, and accepts her for who she is. Plus, he helps her achieve her dreams, and not in “I am the man and will make this happen for you” type of way but a “I’ll support you” way. There is not aspect of this man that didn’t draw me in and make me swoon.

I adore Rian. She is fiercely protective of her sister and their goals. She carries unwarranted guilt, but the fact that she does just exemplifies how big her heart is and how much of a good person she is. This guilt and her past end up getting in the way of her happiness with Pierce, but she snaps out of it pretty quickly because Rian is very logical and intelligent, which is my favorite attribute.

Helena Hunting’s romantic comedies are some of my absolute favorites among all the books I read every year. There is just a certain charm to them that doesn’t exist in other books. The chemistry between her characters is authentic and unique to each story and each couple. Her humor is always different for her heroines, and, yet, a reader can tell it is her signature style. The stories are always fun and sexy. In true romantic comedy fashion, the conflict is expected and resolved relatively easy, but Helena Hunting doesn’t necessarily resolve it quickly, which I enjoyed, because I like when the build up of the conflict isn’t over in a split second. I want to see the couples work for their HEA and these two did, only making their resolution that much sweeter.

I Flipping Love You is another must read from Helena Hunting. I love this entire Shacking Up world she has created (can be read as a standalone), and I hope we get to stay in it for a bit longer.

#NewRelease “The Girl & Her Ren” by Pepper Winters


The Girl and Her Ren by Pepper Winters
The Ribbon Duet Book 2
Publication Date: June 5th, 2018
Genre: Coming of Age Romance

ebook (1)


“What do you do when you write down all your secrets? No…that’s not enough. What do you do when you write down all your secrets and the one person who should never read them does?

I’ll tell you what you do.

You hope.”


Ren didn’t know the meaning of love until he took Della for his own.

To begin with he hated her, but as the months bled into years, he learned the opposite of hate, dedicating his life to giving her everything.

Every sacrifice, every gift, he gave wholeheartedly.

But then love turned to lust and ruined everything.


I was stupid to write my secrets down, but I’d been stupid before so it was nothing new.

I couldn’t blame him, hate him, fix him.

I tried to move on without him.

But no matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to delete the secrets I’d written.

Until something happened.

Until he came back and read my stupid secrets.

And nothing was the same after that.
