#NewRelease “Make You Mine” by Tia Louise

Make You Mine by Tia Louise
Release Date: December 4th


Sarah’s Musings…

4.5 Keep Your Promises CROWNS

Tia Louise never fails to give me the best heroes. They are always these alpha, possessive me who have insecurities underneath that also make me want to snuggle up with them and tell them it will be okay. Gray is this man. I couldn’t have loved his character more. His trials and tribulations from youth to adulthood make him endearing, and his passion and devout love of Drew is what romances are made of. Perfect.

Drew is nothing but compassionate. It radiate from who she is. Her kindness is part of her makeup. Underneath this heart of gold, though, is a sultry temptress. She yields her sexuality against Gray when needed, and I kind of love that about her.

There are many obstacles in the way of these two, from best friends little sister to wrong side of the track status, but these two fight through it all to be together. Their love is pure and true, and their HEA is worth the ride.

Tia Louise always delivers super steamy romances with heart. The characters are endearing, their love hard fought, and the reward is that ever sought after HEA. Basically, the epitome of romance.

#NewReleases “Mister Bodyguard” by Lauren Rowe

Mister Bodyguard, an all-new emotional and sexy friends to lovers romance

by Lauren Rowe is NOW LIVE!


Sarah’s Musings…

5 Primordial Goo Crowns

This novel. I don’t even know where to begin with how much I loved this book. Everything from the Zander and Aloha to the romance to the Morgan family just had me cheesing from the opening chapter.

Zander, the honorary Morgan brother, couldn’t have been more perfect. He is so layered – crazy funny man with Keane, protective bodyguard with Aloha Carmichael, man in love with Alohaha, wonderful son and brother to mama Shaw and his sister. Zander’s heart, like most of the Morgans, LARGE (like ALL parts of him). He wants love, actively seeks it out, and the way he pursues it and Aloha has me swooning. His ideas of love, as the evolve over the course of the novel, are the epitome of romance. He supports the whole and the broken parts of our heroine, wants to protect her as she chases her dreams, lies in the muck with her when she needs to, and revels in her successes. His pride in her, in their love, in themselves radiates from him. Everyone should be loved the way Zander loves. Everyone needs a #ZandyMan.

Aloha is comedic perfection. Being described as the female Keane is such an apt description. She provides the perfect, outlandish comedy over the course of the novel. As with any great character, though, she is more than this one role in the book. She exemplifies the struggle of growing up in the limelight, the feeling of being used by those who are supposed to love you, leaving her jaded. She doesn’t understand or believe in love, which makes her an unlikely, her perfect, companion for Zander, the man who falls quickly in love. Readers also get to see a woman who is a bit broken. We see her fall apart, but we also see how love holds her together, heals her, makes her stronger, more able to grasp the future she wants. Her evolution, with the support of Zander’s love exemplifies the power of true love, real romance.

These two are just hilarious, romantic, sexy. You get it all with them. I was laughing from the moment they start texting and I never stopped. Zander pursuing Aloha is sweet and sexy. Watching them fall in in love is pure joy. Seeing Aloha find a family with the crazy and lovable Morgan clan is fun and entertaining, and the homage to The Bodyguard is utter perfection. There isn’t one thing about this book I didn’t love. From the characters to the plot and pacing, I was captivated.

Books should make you happy. Romance books should make your swoon. Characters should make you want to be a part of their world. Mister Bodyguard and the entire Morgan Brother series (STANDALONES) hits every single one of these criteria. I never ever want this series to end!

#NewRelease “All of Me” by A.L. Jackson

A forbidden stand-alone romance in A.L. Jackson’s Confessions of the Heart Series.

TITLE: ALL OF ME
SERIES: A Confessions of the Heart Stand-Alone Novel

RELEASE DATE: December 3rd, 2018


Sarah’s Musings…

4 KISSES ARE FOREVER CROWNS

A.L. Jackson delivers the most beautiful prose, poetic and descriptive, and a host of characters to fall in love with in All of Me.

Ian is a broken boy who develops into a broken man. His brokenness creates sympathy among readers, and like the heroine, we see his goodness below the cracks. The flashbacks to his youth only serves to develop the sympathy for him. Additionally, we see his cracks mend, we see him gain honor for his atonement, we see him finally find peace and an HEA.

Grace is such a relatable heroine. The way she loves and protects her children, and the desperation she feels to do so resonates. Her family is what Ian needs. She saves him. Makes him better. Allows him to see worth. They save each other.

The pacing of the novel is a bit where things fell apart for me as a reader. The first 50% of the novel was slow for me. I felt like I should love the story. The overall plot is one of my favorite storylines, and I love the primary and secondary characters, but ultimately, this part of the story dragged a bit for me. However, after 50% mark, the story took off. I couldn’t turn pages fast enough. This was the story I wanted, and AL Jackson absolutely delivers.

All of Me is filled with characters you will love, a hero and heroine who love fiercely, and a story that will ultimately be a page turner.

Tori Grayson had it all. Money. Fame. And an adoring husband to share the spotlight. But tragedy struck and took it all away. Six years later and she’s reinvented herself, founding a record label to keep the memory of those she lost alive.

Neither of them was looking for love.

But sometimes fate has other plans.

Every story deserves a soundtrack. And theirs is epic.

#CoverReveal “River Wild” by Samantha Towle

Did you see the cover and blurb for Samantha Towle’s upcoming release RIVER WILD?!

Coming January 14th, 2019!

Photo Credit: Wander Aguiar Photography ♦ Model: Andrew Biernat ♦ Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs


SYNOPSIS:

A new town. A new identity. Pregnant and alone.

And far away from a past that can never find me.

River Wild.

Moody. Sullen. Asshole.

And my new neighbor.

I have no interest in befriending River. And he definitely doesn’t want to be befriended by me.

Then, he helps me rescue an abandoned dog. And, that day, I see something in his eyes that reflects back in my own. Sadness. Pain. Loneliness.

I know all of those things well.

An unwanted and unexpected friendship that somehow works. Then, without warning, it turns into something more.

River and I both have our secrets, and that’s okay. Because I understand him. And he understands me.

For the first time in my life, I have something I never thought I would have—happiness.

But happiness isn’t forever. Not for people like me.

Especially not when my past is waiting just around the corner, ready to come and take it all away.

What happens when the cute mountain man you made out with in an ice fishing shack turns out to be your brother’s best friend?

A whole lot of awkward, that’s what.

Maggie’s mind is reeling when she discovers the guy she became tangled up with at Marv’s Bait & Tackle isn’t a stranger like she thought.

The big snag: Sam and Maggie’s chemistry is hot enough to melt ice, which makes keeping their secret far more difficult than either expected.

Especially when one of them decides they want this arrangement to be more than just a catch and release.

#CoverReveal “The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend’s Sister” by Meghan Quinn

The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend’s Sister

by Meghan Quinn


Synopsis:

How do you date your best friend’s sister? Easy.

Step one: Pretend you want her to set you up with someone else. That will bring the two of you closer.

Step two: Go on date with lots of random women, proceed to get stupid drunk and talk about your best friend’s sister, thus gaining the courage to finally make a move.

Step three: Randomly show up at her apartment and confess your love. Women love that, right?

It all seemed so simple. A fool-proof three step process that will guarantee the love of you life to fall madly in love with you.

At least–that’s what I thought was going to happen. But my attempts to win over Julia Westin backfired in more ways than I can count. The thing about Julia? She’s smart–really smart–and her wicked gaze cuts through all the charm I’ve tried slinging her way. She’s not interested in games, my gifts, or my stories. She might want me too; but she’s not giving in that easy…

#CoverReveal “Best Laid Plans” by Lauren Blakely

They say the grass is greener on the other side…

As a good girl, I have to wonder if it’s better on the naughty side of the fence.

Photography by Rafa G. Catala ♦ Cover Design by Helen Williams


About BEST LAID PLANS (Coming 3/1/2019):

That time I had the brilliant idea to ask my good friend for lessons in sex-ploration…

Awkward? Maybe. But how else is a good girl going to find out if she likes being naughty? I might be sweet as cherry pie, but I’m also bold and damn curious. And Gabe is charming, trustworthy, aces at seduction (or so I hear) and—bonus!— willing to give me lessons. But to guarantee it won’t ruin our friendship, I have some specific requirements for his instruction. I want these classes to be hypothetical more than hands-on. So what if he’s hella sexy? I can handle that, no problem.

***

I have it bad for Arden. She’s bright, brilliant, insanely fun, and I want to take her home and spend all night together—and then spend the day with her, too. When she asks for my help, I see my chance to win her sweet heart by showing her how much fun we can have getting spicy. Trouble is, she has a different idea of what “sex-ploration” should mean. Now I’m going to have to get really clever to win her over.

Good thing I know exactly how to upend her best laid plans.

#NewRelease “Only Love” by Melanie Harlow

Heartfelt, beautiful and sexy!”

Lauren Blakely, #1 New York Times bestselling author

ONLY LOVE RB BANNER.jpg

Only Love, an all-new sexy standalone romance

from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is available now!


Sarah’s Musings…

Only Love epitomizes everything I love about a Melanie Harlow novel. She gives a sweet romance with fantastic chemistry and physical intimacy to heat up the sheets, and Ryan and Stella exhibit this flawlessly.

Ryan is a veteran, one who is a bit damaged from his service. Through his relationship, we see him begin to deal with his emotions and begin to heal a bit. There are obvious setbacks, but overall Only Love is about his growth as a person. What Melanie Harlow does with his character is use it as a platform to discuss the many struggles and emotions that plague soldiers who are returning to civilian life – the guilt, the depression, and absolution. Reader hearts will ache for him, but also find joy in his evolution.

Stella is an interesting heroine. At the beginning of the novel, she is self conscious, not about her intelligence or worth but her body and sexual prowess. It has led her to make some safe choices when dealing with love. There will be, I’m sure, readers who don’t love the somewhat antiquated notions that are perpetuated by Grams, but I love the simplicity of the ideas behind it. I love that Stella just wants someone to support and love, someone who she can be herself with and vice versa. I found it to be a search of love in its simplest form.

This is a bit insta-love, but unlike most insta romances, Melanie Harlow is able to establish a real and genuine connection. These two share and connect emotionally and intellectually as well as physically. It allows readers to believe in the authenticity of their relationship, even though it is quick. The plot itself holds little to no surprises, and readers will be able to figure out the general plot earlier on. This doesn’t decrease the enjoyment of the journey, but I do wish their would have been a bit more of the unexpected.

Only Love is a great conclusion to this series of standalones. I love that Melanie Harlow brought a secondary subplot, exposing issues facing veterans. It brought a bit something to the romance, giving depth to the characters and their story.

Ansgty romance is what I love about a Melanie Harlow book. I always get swept away by her characters and their journey, and, seriously, check out this cover. I DIE. SWOON.

Tricia’s Musings…

After some dark reads recently, I’m in need of something a little lighter. Although I’m getting the impression there’s some angst here, from reading the blurb I’m hoping we get some laughs too, courtesy of ‘Grams’

FULL REVIEW TO COME TOMORROW

Synopsis:

A gorgeous former Marine with a tortured soul.

The beautiful, compassionate therapist living next door.

A meddlesome grandma determined to get them together.

I was expecting a proposal on my birthday, and I got dumped instead.

How could I have been so clueless?

Grams knew exactly how to distract me.

The “cute boy next door” who’s been helping her with yard work clearly needs a little therapy. Who better to call than her newly single therapist granddaughter?

She even fakes dementia to get me to visit, and now that I’m here she’s doing everything in her power to throw us together.

Not that I’m complaining. Ryan is the sexiest man I’ve ever met–I mean the full package, from the chiseled jaw to the massive shoulders to the rippling abs. (And yes, his package is full, and he knows exactly how to deliver it.) He makes me want to get out of my head and follow my heart. He makes me want to take chances I never thought I’d take.

He also makes me want to take my clothes off. A lot.

But he’s moody and challenging–one minute he’s an open book, and the next he’s completely closed off. He holds me like he’ll never let go, but insists he wants to be alone.

Some wounds are so deep, only love can heal them.

How can I convince him to let me try?

#NewRelease “Good Gone Bad” by Giana Darling

Title: Good Gone Bad
Series: The Fallen Men Series #3
Author: Giana Darling
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: November 23, 2018


Sarah’s Musings…
5+ Thorny Rose CROWNS

You know when you finish a book and you just have all these emotions swirling around inside. You can’t seem to grasp any single one because you were just on the ride of your life. You are sad it is over, elated with the ending, stressed from the tension and unknown throughout the story. That is how I feel. Giana Darling put me through the wringer with Harleigh and Danner, but, oh, their love is worth the ride.

Danner is, like the other men in the series, a mix of good and bad. He is on the side of good, wearing a badge and promising to protect his city, but he also isn’t afraid to keep them safe by acting criminally if needed. He earns his nickname of Lion for the honor and courage and pride he has. This man is ferocious in the way he loves and protects, and none more so than Rosie. The way he loves her, breaks her, lets her be wild and tames her all at the same time is beautiful. It is them. It is him. It is perfect.

Harleigh Rose is just EVERYTHING. She is a rebel, comfortable in her own skin, proud of her name and her MC. She is her father’s daughter. Like Danner, though, there is a dichotomy to her character. There is a desire to be loved, a need, at times, to be reckless, and a compulsion to rebel. As her name implies, there are thorns and petals to this multi-layered complex heroine, but at her heart, she is a girl who just wants to save the world and her family, to grab her HEA and live it with those she loves in her own way. Damn what anyone else says, and I wholeheartedly love her for it.

The chemistry between these two is electric. It permeates the air, electrifying it, and then combusts in the bedroom. Not only do readers get the hot, dominating intimacy, but we also get the forbidden aspect of their relationship as she is the princess of The Fallen MC and he is a cop. Add to that the danger and drama from the secondary plot of taking down the Beserker MC, and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Giana’s beautifully written prose ensnared me and I didn’t want to break free. Even when it was all over, I wanted more pages to magically appear. I wanted more Lion and Rosie, more family moments with the Fallen, more of the good as Giana worked them over hard in this one. But it is worth it. Every moment, every fight, every victory, hard fought, is worth it.

I would be remiss not to mention Giana’s writing. There are just some authors who are artists, and she is one. The way she composes her stories, her use of syntax and diction, forces me to live these stories. When her characters hurt, I hurt, when they have success, I feel overwhelmed with joy, when they get down and dirty…well, you get what I’m saying. You LIVE her stories. Her writing alone will always make me one-click, but I hope we stay in this world for a very long time.

Good Gone Bad is not just a super steamy romance, it is not just a suspenseful story about taking down a corrupt MC, it is a reflection of how humans aren’t just good or bad. It is a look at how we are both, how we can find our match in another, someone who just inherently gets you. It is about living wild and free while still having limits and being able to surrender and submit for those you love. It is an epic ride I implore you to take. Giana and Danner and Rosie won’t let you down.

Tricia’s Musings…
5 CROWNS
From first to last, this book doesn’t pull its punches. Ms Darling has created such wonderfully complex characters, some of whom are savage and sadistic, others who are deep thinkers, loyal and loving, in their own rough and ready, foul mouthed way, and I absolutely loved it. I had so many conflicting emotions and heart stopping moments as the shocks and surprises just kept coming.

Harleigh Rose, MC princess, is all grown up. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about her based on her previous behaviour, but I shouldn’t have worried. Beneath the tough biker babe exterior there’s a certain vulnerability which, together with her fighting spirit, her loyalty and love for her family, totally endeared her to me. She’s got real grit and determination and I loved her for it.

Lionel Danner is the good guy but, as the title suggests, he knows how to cross that line into bad boy territory when necessary. His relationship with HR is a long and complicated one. It’s intense and passionate and forbidden. This author does a fantastic job of prolonging the sexual tension and the tease between these two. You can feel the agony of not being able to act on their desires, the strain of trying to hide their feelings. The need, the wanting, the longing is agonising and when it all becomes too much to resist any longer, Rosie and her Lion light the world, and the pages, on fire. They, like the gripping plot, will leave you breathless and panting for more.

Action packed and heartbreaking at times, Good Gone Bad is going to smack you right between the eyes and you won’t know what’s hit you!

#BlogTour “Control” by K. Bromberg

“Sometimes love happens unexpectedly…”

From New York Times Bestselling Author K Bromberg, comes CONTROL, a new novella in her Everyday Heroes Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!


Sarah’s Musings…

3 CROWNS

There wasn’t a single thing that I disliked about this novel. So why the rating? I needed more, just more of everything – depth of characters, more layered plot, and more chemistry.

Rez and Desi are good characters, likable and fun. I never really felt, though, that I got to really understand their motivations and desires. They feel very two dimensional. The chemistry in the bedroom is perfect, but their lack of real conversation outside of the bedroom left the chemistry fizzle out. I would have liked to see it transfer between those two domains.

The plot is predictable, which is necessarily bad, but it left me feeling like I could put the book down and walk away. I didn’t feel compelled to ignore the world for this story. I was hoping the story was going to go a certain but alas I was left disappointed. This alternate avenue would have definitely changed me rating.

This is a case of expectations may have been a bit too high. K. Bromberg and this series has been a fave, but this one just fell flat for me.

Cold Cole Heart by K. Webster

Publication Date: November 14, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark Romance


Tricia’s Musings…

5 CROWNS
A dark, clever plot, with triggers galore, Cold Cole Heart had me gripped from the beginning. I was disgusted, bewildered and fascinated in equal measure and I couldn’t put it down! My review will be vague as to events, so as not to spoil the story.

The prologue has you diving straight into Cole’s story, his background, his past, and it’s heartbreaking. His is a tale of revenge, seeking to rid the world of the evil he believes lives amongst us by becoming judge, jury and executioner. It’s a brutal, extremely graphic, story but it’s the psychological elements which had me eagerly turning the pages. There were moments when Cole’s inconsistent behaviour had me quite perplexed. I couldn’t figure out what was going on and it drove me slightly mad. I love stories that do that. To be honest, I didn’t really connect with his character, or fall in love with him, but I can say this did not affect my enjoyment of the story at all.

Natalie has been living a hellish life for some time and she’s a real survivor. I loved her character, vulnerable, but tenacious and actually far stronger than she realises. She’s quick witted and resourceful and, as we come to discover, is the perfect victim for Cole!

This is a fantastic psychological suspense, with a brilliantly inventive storyline. It will have your anxiety levels at an all time high, but maybe not for the reasons you think. You need to strap yourself in and hold on tight for one heck of a rollercoaster ride. Not to mention that conclusion, which will knock your socks off!

#NewRelease “Do You Feel It Too?” by Nicola Rendell

Do You Feel It Too? By Nicola Rendell
Release Date: November 20th


BLURB

A hot summer night is perfect for feeling your way in the dark…

For urban-legend hunter and television host Gabe Powers, it’s business—investigate the most notorious haunted places in Savannah. Then he meets his new sound engineer, a dewy Georgia peach who may just turn this gig into (im)pure pleasure. All it takes is one night for them to conjure floor-rattling, wall-banging moans…but they’re not from the ghosts.

Blame the rippling abs, the cocky swagger, the granite jawline, the whole muscle-bulging package, but Gabe is bringing out good-girl Lily Jameson’s dirty side. Damn her code-of-conduct contract—this isn’t just a molten-hot fling.

There’s just one kink in the relationship they’ve been avoiding: soon they’ll be going their separate ways. Lily’s home is in Savannah, and Gabe is a globe-trotter at heart. For them to be together, they’ll both have to upend their so-very-different worlds and face their fears in the process. And suddenly things don’t feel so Georgia peachy keen at all.

#NewRelease “Misadventures on the Rebound” by Lauren Rowe

Misadventures on the Rebound, a sexy standalone romance by Lauren Rowe is NOW LIVE!


Synopsis:

After getting canned from her dream job this morning and played in spectacular fashion by her boyfriend this afternoon, Savannah “Savvy” Valentine is having a truly awful day. Which is why she’s currently drowning her sorrows in whiskey and self-pity in a shabby bar along the route to Las Vegas.

In light of today’s double whammy, Savvy isn’t sure why she’s still heading in the direction of her five-year high school reunion. The only reason she’d wanted to attend the reunion in Vegas in the first place was to show the captain of the football team, the guy who took her virginity and then promptly rejected her, that the captain of the math team grew up to have all enviable hot things: hot body, hot boyfriend, and hot career. Now, the only “hot” thing about Savvy Valentine is her mess.

But when a gorgeous stranger with sandy hair, a leather jacket, and motorcycle helmet walks into the bar, Savvy’s awful day suddenly looks a whole lot brighter. The man is perfection. Sexy and mysterious. And he’s heading to Las Vegas, too.

Can one wild night with a sexy stranger in the middle of nowhere lead a girl to fall desperately and deeply in love in Las Vegas? Savvy Valentine is about to find out.
