Genre: Contemporary Romance

Series: Dangerous Love

Release Date: June 19, 2018

Format: Digital eBook

ISBN: TBD

Synopsis:

Jake McGinnis has the life he has dreamed of since childhood: a professional football career with adoring fans, financial security, and the unwavering support of his family. From the outside looking in, he has everything. But nothing could be further from the truth. Because there isn’t a day that goes by that Jake doesn’t think about his first love… and what his world would look like if she was still by his side. When he hears that she is relocating to start a new job less than a mile from him, the pain of their breakup feels fresher than ever. For eight years, he has wondered why their relationship ended and now she’s settling in his city. A city that isn’t big enough for the two of them.

For Morgan Kelley, moving to Philadelphia means living closer to her family and practicing veterinary medicine with two of her closest friends. It’s also her chance to start over and move on from her failed marriage. There’s only one con: the close proximity to Jake McGinnis. Once upon a time being near him was all she wanted, but now he is practically a stranger… and it’s all her fault. Faced with awful memories and the possibility of bumping into him at her favorite coffee shop, Morgan is haunted by the real reason she once broke both of their hearts. Deep down, she knows she won’t be able to embrace this new chapter of her life without finally telling Jake the whole truth.

But how will he react when she shares her secret? Their love story once felt inevitable, unshakable. Is this where it ends for good, or is it the beginning of a second chance?

Review

What a beautiful story!

Jake and Morgan have always had a connection from the day they met as children. As they grew, Morgan fell in love with Jake, knowing he was “it” for her. Jake took a while to figure things out, but soon, he, too, knew that they were soulmates. So when Morgan ended things, it hurt Jake a lot. The pain is even sharper now that Morgan has moved back to their hometown for good, and Jake realises that he never really got over her. Morgan has a secret, but is unsure whether revealing it will sever the new bond she and Jake have formed.

This story is raw, and filled with a sort of sweet sorrow. Jake & Morgan suffered so much apart from each other, but there’s no doubt that Morgan made the choices she did out of anything less than pure love for Jake. I loved that the author did flashbacks to their past, so you felt the connection, and understood how important each was to the other.

This book is a standalone, but I look forward to reading about the characters I met in this book.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book. The author did a wonderful job, making us fall in love with these characters and their long, arduous road to happiness.

Excerpt

“You said you wanted to be friends.” His tone wasn’t sarcastic or cruel, but gruff and needy. “Now tell me what you need.”

Jake’s words melted her, and she felt the last of her resistance drain from her body. “You,” Morgan whispered. She watched her admission take hold of him. His jaw clenched and his breathing became labored. The intensity of his gaze made her wet with desire and she silently begged him to take what had always been his.

“Be certain, Morgan. Because I won’t be able to stop once I taste you again.”

She bit her lip at the desperation in his voice. He needed assurance and she was more than willing to give it to him. Morgan slipped off her sneakers and socks. Her Eagles hoodie and the white t-shirt beneath were next. His eyes didn’t drift to her breasts but remained on her eyes. The lust she saw there, that restless need, was her undoing. She had just undone the  button on her jeans when Jake closed the distance between them. He took her face in his hands  and smashed his lips against hers. She was struggling for breath when he gave her his.

He tasted exactly like she remembered. But his body, everything from his ripped abs to his muscular torso, had changed. The last time they were together he had been on the cusp of being the man she knew he would become, the man who was claiming her right now. Needing to feel him against her heated skin, she removed his shirt and pressed her taut nipples against his rock-hard chest as he continued to devour her mouth. Unlike their first time, there was nothing gentle about this encounter. He wasn’t concerned that he would hurt her…he just took. And that was exactly what Morgan needed.

Review

This is a raw, messy, uncomfortable-at-times read that pulls at your heartstrings.

Iz & Liz met and fell in love at college. However, behind-the-scenes machinations by her father prevented their relationship from going further than it could have. Sixteen years later, it appears as though fate has conspired to give them a chance to rework their history into an amazing future, but the pain of the past is like a dark cloud, threatening their second chance before it even begins.

I liked the way the story unfolded, with flashbacks to the past, which allowed the reader to view the beginning of Liz & Iz’s relationship, as well as understand Liz’s frame of mind and the context in which her choices were made. The difficult topics broached within the pages were handled well by the author. Though it was a hard read at times, I just couldn’t put it down.

This is a good second chance/interracial romance – I highly recommend it.

Release Blitz: Crazy Stupid Love (A Dirty Dicks Novel) by K.L. Grayson ~ 5 stars

Title: Crazy Stupid Love
A Dirty Dicks Standalone Novel
Author: K.L. Grayson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 20, 2018
Blurb
There’s a special place in hell for a man like me—a man who shamelessly sleeps with his best friend’s little sister, knowing he’ll never be what she needs. A man who takes because the only thing he has to offer in return is a broken past that’s destined to destroy his future.
I was the kid who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks with shit parents and clothes that had been handed down one too many times. I stole to feed my sister, fought to protect her, and I’ll always be the guy your parents don’t want you to bring home.
So yeah, that’s me. Lincoln Bennett. Adley Allen’s walk on the wild side. Her dirty little secret. And I’m okay with that—ninety-nine percent of the time. Unfortunately today is in that one percent when it doesn’t sit well with me. For some strange reason, I want to be around to celebrate all of Adley’s successes. I want to be here when she gets her first job and take her out to dinner after her first shift. I want to be
the one she depends on, the person she calls when she has a bad day. Or a great
day. Or any kind of day.
I want more than her body. I want her heart. But men like me don’t get women like her.
At least not to keep.

Review

This installment in the Dirty Dicks series is filled with the sort of love, contentment and heat that – for me – makes the perfect combination to a really good romance.

Adley & Lincoln have been messing around for 5 months. Scared that they’re not good enough for each other, they pretend that their physical relationship is all that they need, until feelings rear their silly, little heads. But will Lincoln have the courage to be the man Adley believes him to be, or will his past be the one wall they can’t tear down?

I loved that Adley accepted Lincoln as he was. She was willing to give him the space to work through his issues with the caveat that he not continue to shut her out. Lincoln’s character growth directly feeds into the growth of their relationship. Lincoln’s relationship with his sister will give you the fuzzies, while the way he looks out for Adley and the different ways he shows his love for her will make you swoon.

This is a fun, sexy read that I wholeheartedly recommend. There are vague, roundabout hints as to which Allen sibling or family friend K.L. Grayson will write about next, but one thing is for certain: I can’t wait for the next one!

Review

This conclusion to the Sin Duet answered many questions that I had about Matthias & Noah since I first read about Blake Security in Shameless. It’s probably the best story so far, really.

Picking up from where Sin left off, Sinful plunged straight into a quest for answers and peace for the quiet, yet deadly former ORUS operative that I always held a soft spot in my heart for – Matthias. Finally, a man who’s only had snatches of love finally recognises the importance of family and what a real family does for its members.

This story was worth the wait for me (almost a year!). I can’t wait to see whose story is next. I eat up anything Malone Squared writes, especially their romantic suspense novels, and I know the next character’s story is gonna kick butt.

I highly recommend this duet, as well as the other books in the Blake Security series so far.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

 

I’m a bodyguard. I walk softly and carry a big…stick.

Too bad I have no idea how to use it.

I know what you’re thinking. How the hell do you end up a virgin when you live in a city known for easy access?

But my focus is protecting the women of New York…not fulfilling my every desire.

Then I meet her.

Yeah, for everyone but me.

It sounds crazy, I know. Breaking News: badass bodyguard for the nation’s top security firm doesn’t know how to talk to women.

That’s it, folks. I have no game. Luckily my newfound family at Blake Security accepts me exactly as I am.

But there are things in my past, secrets, that I’d do anything to protect them from.

Release Blitz: Cross Drop (On the Edge #2) by Elizabeth Hartey ~ 4.5 stars

Title: Cross Drop
Series: On the Edge
Author: Elizabeth Hartey
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 19, 2018
Publisher: Limitless Publishing

 

Nikki
I’m not a saint. Never claimed to be. I’ve played the game and scored my fair share—both on and off the field. This is why I should have known better than to fall for a hockey player. But I did. I fell fast and hard. 

Now I’m left with the painful consequences, reminded every day of how reckless I had been by giving him my heart so easily—so willingly. Dalt broke me in the cruelest of ways, and because of him, I’ll never be able to love again.

Dalt
Nikki changed me. She made me want to be a better man. My days playing off the ice were over because she owned every little piece of my heart…until she left, leaving behind a gnawing ache where my heart used to be.

Now she’s back, and it’s painfully clear she hates me, ignoring me, pretending like I’m nobody to her. But that’s just too damn bad. I want answers. I want a goddamn explanation.

And most of all…I want her.

Review Graphic
I really enjoyed this book.

Nikki & Dalt are so in love with each other – until Nikki disappears. When she comes back to school, there’s suddenly a chasm between them that is so wide, leaving Dalt confused. As Dalt refuses to give up on the love of his life, he finds out secrets and things he never imagined. Can he and Nikki move past everything and give their love another chance?

I loved that Dalt never gave up on Nikki. Sure, he did dumb stuff, but his heart was in the right place more often than not. In no way do you ever doubt that they belong together. Nikki was scared and distrustful because of her past, leading her to make snap, life-altering decisions. And Dalt is right there to love her through it all. While the book is emotional, it is very sexy, too. Dalt & Nikki have crazy, hot chemistry that burns.

I loved this cast of characters, and enjoyed their varied interactions. I highly recommend it. I definitely look forward to more.

As a lover of the northeast US, Elizabeth moved with her husband to the Poconos several years ago to open a Chiropractic Clinic. Four children and a menagerie of animals later, she has finally found time to fulfill her lifelong dream of writing novels. The wild ride of writing books is one of the most difficult things she’s ever done in her life. But the opportunity to get her stories out of her head and down on paper and send them out into the world is also one of the most wonderful things she’s ever done. A dreamer at heart, romance is the genre she spends most of her time writing and reading into the wee hours of the morning. And having readers fall in love with her characters as much as she does is almost as exciting as giving birth (just not as painful!) When not juggling work responsibilities and writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking the beautiful hills and woods around her home, swimming, knitting, watching old classic movies and traveling.

Blog Tour: The Bombshell Effect by Karla Sorensen ~ 4.5 stars

 
Title: The Bombshell Effect
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Sports Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 14, 2018
Cover Designer: Najla Qamber

Allie Sutton just got a new job. 

Not one she wants, and definitely not one she’s prepared for. She hadn’t seen her dad in years, so the last thing she expects upon his sudden death is to inherit the thing he loved more than anything (or anyone) … the professional football team he owned for the last twenty years. 

Luke Pierson does not want a new boss. 

What he wants is to be a good father to his daughter, the best quarterback possible for his teammates. What he doesn’t need is a blonde bombshell ruining the team’s chances at another championship. Especially when that bombshell turns out to be his new neighbor. The neighbor he was a complete jerk to the first time they met. 

For the sake of the team, they treat each other like complete professionals. In public, at least. Behind closed doors, it’s a different story. And the fallout of giving in to that heat is something neither one of them can see coming.
Review Graphic
I chose to read this book because I read & loved ‘Tristan’ by Karla Sorensen. I was glad that I made a good choice.

The Bombshell Effect is about two people who suddenly realise that, in spite of everything bad that has happened in their pasts, there exists someone who could love them and build them up to be the best versions of themselves. Though the fiery chemistry between Luke & Allie doesn’t explode immediately, the steamy ride before & after that the author takes us on provides a riveting, fun, and almost inspirational read. I was actually disappointed when the book was over. Karla Sorensen created two main characters that I wanted more of, even after the story ended.

I highly recommend this book. There’s a lot to enjoy and love in it. Ms. Sorensen does an awesome job, drawing the reader into Luke & Allie’s world, as well as the world of the Washington Wolves. I hope we see one or more of these guys soon.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone’s face, then I’ve done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.

Thirty Day Boyfriend

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | iBooks | Audible | iTunes

I should’ve never agreed to this arrangement…

Thirty days ago, my boss–Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn’t refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a “very generous” severance package.

The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I’ve secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met.

I definitely didn’t need to think twice about this. I signed my name and started counting down the seconds to when I would never have to deal with his special brand of ass-holery again.

I only made it to one minute…

We argued the entire four-hour flight to his hometown, failed to make a convincing impression with the welcoming press, and right when I was about to knock that arrogant look off his face in real life? He purposely dropped his bath towel in front of me, distracting me with his nine-inch cock to “show me who the bigger person was” in our relationship. Then he gave me his trademark smirk once again and asked if I wanted to consummate our marriage.

Tragically, this is only day one.
We still have 29 more days to go…

Review

This story was very funny and sexy. I liked the way the story was relatively drama-free, focused more on Nicholas & Emily’s relationship. Emily is a strong, sassy heroine that was easy to like. Nicholas wasn’t as alpha-hole- ish as I expected. You could tell he was soft on Emily pretty early on.

I preferred the female’s voice, though, as she seemed to do better voice intonation. Her imitations of the voices of the opposite sex were also better.

All in all, I enjoyed my first Audible experience!

I received an ARC of the audible version of this book.

About 13:

“Fake it till you make it.”

A notion I once considered utterly ridiculous. Until one crazy night with a mysterious man resulted in a social media frenzy that had the entire entertainment industry talking.

Seems a fake marriage was just what my career needed to make Hollywood come knocking.

Convincing him to continue the charade was almost too easy. The chemistry between us made it impossible to keep my hands to myself. But it was all just pretend, right? Love was never in the script.

That is, until he re-wrote it.

13 Reasons You Should Stay:

REVIEW

I truly enjoyed this book!

Sophie & Hawk’s romance stirred something inside me. I loved the way Hawk took care of Sophie – it was beautiful & swoon-worthy. She was hurting and needing someone, and he became that and more. I loved Sophie, too. A woman mature enough to admit she’d made mistakes, and strong enough to want and work towards more and better for herself.

This is my first book by Rhonda James, and I am definitely looking forward to reading more from her!

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Exclusive Excerpt:

The first thing I noticed were his eyes. Bottle green with the tiniest flecks of copper scattered throughout, and when the light hit them just right, those flecks sparkled in the most intriguing way. His shaggy caramel-blond hair stuck up in all directions, as if he’d been running his fingers through it all day, and the longer I stared, the more I found myself wanting to do the same thing. Tattoos circled both of his wrists, and his ears were pierced and adorned in black onyx. He had a smile that could simultaneously melt your heart and panties. Everything about him screamed male model, and if he wasn’t, then he sure as hell should be. He was that gorgeous. The bar was packed, and he was seated close. So close his muscular thigh pressed tightly against mine, making it impossible to ignore his presence. Not that I wanted to or anything.

By the time I finished examining him, I looked up and found his pouty lips were puckered as if he was deep in thought. Either that or he was thinking about kissing me. Yeah, I knew we hadn’t been formally introduced, but I’d definitely consider kissing those lips. His gaze was intense, and it roamed my entire body, slowly, as if he were cataloging every detail for later when he was alone and naked in the shower. The thought of him naked, alone or otherwise, excited me.

“No one special.” I fidgeted in my seat. “Old boyfriend.”

“If you ask me, he’s a dumbass for letting you get away. You’re much prettier than candy.”

Another blush heated my cheeks as I shook my head and responded, if only to keep him talking, “Ahh, but you haven’t seen this particular piece of candy.”

“Don’t need to. He gave you up. In my book, that’s reason enough to achieve asshole status.” He winked and tipped his glass to mine. “But, thanks to his assholery, you’re here with me. So… to assholes.”

Okay. He was definitely flirting.

Every girl has a breaking point…
Mine came the moment I found my boyfriend in bed with another woman. Turns out she wasn’t the first, either. Nope. Seems my guy had been screwing every available girl on campus and I’d been oblivious to all of it.
Running away with a rock band may not be the best way to handle things, but that’s exactly what I do. Two days into the adventure, I’m slapped in the face with how boring and predictable my life has been up to this point.
With my birthday fast approaching, I finally give in to my best friend’s advice and make a list. You know the kind. Every single thing I’ve been too chicken to do–until now, anyway.
The catch? Accomplishing all 21 before my birthday. Should make for an interesting month.

2) Be more adventurous
3) Kiss a random guy
4) Proposition a hot guy
5) Achieve the BIG ‘O’

Blog Tour – Excerpt Reveal & ARC Review: BANE (Sinners of Saint #5) by L.J. Shen ~ 5 stars

SBPR-BT-BANNER-2

Bane-Cover-Facebook

Bane, the highly-anticipated next standalone in the Sinners of Saint Series by L.J. Shen is LIVE

Bane

Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.

Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.

Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.

Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.

Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

Jesse Carter

Hot as hell, cold as ice.

I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.

She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time.

She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.

More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.

Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.

 

REVIEW

Umm… Wow! This book has me scrambling for words to describe it. Stunning. Painful. Angst-filled. Crazy. Enlightening. Inspirational.

My whole life has been pledged to this meeting with you.”

Bane is not a guy you’d be scrambling to have your parents meet, but he’s perfect in every way for Jesse. With their lives intertwined before they ever met, their unexpected relationship blooms and flourishes, forcing both Jesse and Bane out of their comfort zones and into a world of feelings. I couldn’t help but root for them.

Bane is the resident whore, pothead and con artist – titles he owns without remorse. Not inherently bad, he accepts a job, only to realise too late that the job would become his life, his very reason for living.

Though a bit defeated after life has dealt her blow after blow, you can’t help but admire Jesse. She’s fragile, yet strong. Distrustful, yet hopeful that she’d get her silver lining. Meeting Bane opens her eyes and her heart, helping her realise her potential and purpose.

You don’t need a prince, princess. You need a sword.”

And wield it she does. After her disappointments, she comes back stronger than ever. Both of them change and grow with the other’s help. Finally realising a fundamental truth about self worth:

Life is about meeting your eyes in the mirror without flinching.”

This is the first book in the Sinners of Saint series I’ve read. I wanted to see for myself what all the fuss was about. This book is one that I couldn’t put down. Its characters and situations are vivid, profound and entertaining – some are quite funny. I wholeheartedly, unreservedly recommend this book as one of the better books I’ve read for the year.

EXCERPT

Bane

Then.

A liar.

A con.

A godless thief.

My reputation was a big wave that I rode, one that swallowed everyone around me, drowning every attempt to fuck with what’s mine.

I’d been known as a stoner, but power was my real drug of choice. Money meant nothing. It was tangible, and therefore easy to lose. See, to me, people were a game. One I’d always known how to win.

Move the rooks around.

Change the queen when necessary.

Guard the king at all fucking times.

I was never distracted, never deterred, and never jealous.

So, imagine my surprise when I found myself being all three at once.

It was a siren with coal black hair who robbed me of riding the biggest wave I’d seen that summer. Of my precious attention. Of my goddamn breath.

She glided from the ocean to the beach like nightfall.

I crouched down, straddling my surfboard, gawking.

Edie and Beck stopped beside me, floating on their boards in my periphery.

“This one’s taken by Emery Wallace,” Edie had warned. Thief.

“This one’s the hottest masterpiece in town.” Beck had chuckled. Con.

“More importantly, she only dates rich bastards.” Liar.

I had all the ingredients to pull her in.

Her body was a patch of fresh snow. White, fair, like the sun shone through her, never quite soaking in. Her skin defied nature, her ass defied my sanity, but it was the words on her back that made my logic rebel.

It wasn’t her curves or the way she swayed her hips like a dangling, poisonous apple that warranted my reaction to her.

It was that tattoo I had noticed when she swam close to me earlier, the words trickling down the nape of her neck and back in a straight arrow.

My Whole Life Has Been Pledged to This Meeting with You

Pushkin.

I only knew one person who went gaga over the Russian poet, and, like the famous Alexander, he was currently six feet under.

My friends began to paddle back to shore. I couldn’t move. It felt like my balls were ten tons heavy. I didn’t believe in love at first sight. Lust, maybe, but even that wasn’t the word I was looking for. No. This girl fucking intrigued me.

“What’s her name?” I snatched Beck’s ankle, yanking him back to me. Edie stopped pedaling and looked back, her gaze ping-ponging between us.

“Doesn’t matter, bro.”

“What’s. Her. Name?” I repeated through a locked jaw.

“Dude, she’s, like, way young.”

“I will not repeat myself a third time.”

Beck’s throat bobbed with a swallow. He knew damn well that I didn’t mess around. If she was legal—it was on.

“Jesse Carter.”

Jesse Carter was going to be mine before she even knew me.

Before I even knew her.

Before her life turned upside down and her fate rewrote itself with her blood.

So here was the truth that even my lying ass wouldn’t admit later on in our story—I wanted her before.

Before she became business.

Before the truth caged her in.

Before the secrets gushed out.

I never did get to surf that day.

My surfboard broke.

Should have known it was an omen.

My heart was going to be next in line.

And for a small chick, she did one hell of a fucking job obliterating it.

MY REVIEW

This book was a real treat from beginning to end. Though fast-paced, it manages to impact you with all the feelings the main characters experience as they face their feelings for each other while dealing with the possible fallout from others around them.

I liked that the author didn’t try to complicate things more than necessary, and the emotions in the novel were realistically portrayed by the different characters. This is a fun, sexy romance that I definitely recommend!

Blog Tour, ARC Review & Giveaway: Promise Me Always ~ 4 stars


Promise Me Always
Rhonda Shaw
Publication date: February 26th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Gabrielle Wells was everything Danny Anderson shouldn’t want. She was his opposite in every way, but he couldn’t keep his distance, and fate seemed to push them together at every turn. She consumed him, and the more he learned about her, the more he realized she was exactly what he didn’t know he needed. But then past mistakes forced him to walk away and never look back, breaking Gabrielle’s heart in the process.

Fast forward six years, and it seems as if fate is intervening again. Danny, now a best-selling rap artist, returns to his hometown, and is reunited with the only girl he’s ever loved.

Gabrielle isn’t the girl he left behind, though, and Danny realizes life has thrown her quite a few curves. But he will stop at nothing to get her back, refusing to let his true desires—love and family—continue to elude him. However, when Danny’s past crashes into his present, threatening everyone he loves and everything he’s fought for, he must decide if his promise to Gabrielle of “always” is worth the risk.

Goodreads / Amazon / Kobo

MY REVIEW

Danny has big dreams of being a famous rapper. The new girl at school – no matter how intriguingly beautiful – shouldn’t be on his radar, except she is. Now, Danny wants both the girl and the dream, but his past keeps interfering. Can he really have the best of both worlds?

This is a sweet second chance romance. Danny & Gabrielle’s story is an emotional ride, though you’ll find yourself hoping throughout that they sort out their issues and get back together in spite of every obstacle thrown in their path.

I was looking forward to all the loose ends being tied up. I still have questions! But this sweet story with its dramatic subplots will certainly thrill you.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Author Bio:

Rhonda owes her love of reading to her mother who would read to her each night before bed and sometimes give into pleads for more than one chapter. These days, if Rhonda doesn’t have a book in her hands, it feels like something is missing. While romance is her true passion, Rhonda enjoys reading multiple genres.

Born in California, but transplanted to the Midwest, Rhonda is warm weather girl to the bone (even years later, winter and her are not on speaking terms) and loves nothing more than a balmy, summer evening. She also loves all animals–especially her silly French Bulldog, Keno.

Nowadays, she has so many characters and story ideas running around in her head that she can’t keep up with them. But one day, she’ll tell each one.

Blog Tour|ARC Review|Excerpt Review|#TeaserShare|Giveaway: Indecent Exposure (The Academy #2) by Tessa Bailey ~ 5 stars

Is there a problem, Officer?

Jack Garrett isn’t a police officer yet, but there’s already an emergency. His new firearms instructor—the one who just dropped every jaw in the academy gym—is the same sexy Irish stranger Jack locked lips with last night. The Olympic gold medalist and expert markswoman is now officially off-limits, but Jack’s never cared much for rules . . .

Katie McCoy’s been cooped up in a shooting range for too long. A wild love affair is just what she needs to let loose, though she never imagined it would be with her smokin’ hot trainee. She cannot get involved with Jack—but a quick fling? Perfect. Falling hard for a charismatic recruit with an equal amount of sex appeal and secrets? Bloody stupid.

Jack’s charmed the pants off plenty of women (literally), yet few have ever looked beyond his perfect surface. Until Katie. He’ll do anything to keep her in his life . . . except tell her about his past. But a tiny lie of omission never hurt anyone, right?

MY REVIEW

I didn’t read Book 1 in this series (which I will remedy), and I’m already excited to read Book 3!

Jack Garrett is a hero that you love immediately from the first page. His cocky sexiness draws you in, and his self deprecating humour makes you stay. His concern for Katie melts you even further. Add in his dirty talk, and I tell you – you’ll be wishing he was real & all yours.

Katie’s shyness & special sort of awkward are what makes her such a sweet character and perfect fit for Jack. How could you not love Katie’s quirky obsession? The way she truly saw Jack’s potential and pushed him towards it, despite him not believing in himself initially?

This is truly a great read. The author made it so we didn’t have a choice but to root for Katie & Jack as a couple. She touched on some heavy issues in the book with a different perspective that made the book unique and insightful.

I still can’t begin to describe how much I loved this book. I recommend it wholeheartedly, especially to those who love quirky romances, with cocky, dirty-talking heroes who know just how to love their women right.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book, which I received via Edelweiss.

EXCERPT:

“One kiss.”

He takes a step forward, his big chest rising and falling. “I know I’m pushing it, Snaps. But I’m dying over here.”

I’m dying, too. No denying it. This attraction is very bad for my mental and physical health. He probably won’t even show up tomorrow night. His romantic comedy costar will distract him with an invitation to eat grapes on a sun- drenched rooftop somewhere and I . . . I could never get another chance to kiss this outrageously beautiful man. This trip to New York isn’t only a career opportunity, it’s a chance to shake off my comfort zone.

Do it, Katie. Don’t regret it. Don’t be a coward. What’s the worst that could happen?

“Just one, then,” I whisper.

His green eyes go molten as he takes two big strides and swoops in. I hear my backpack hit the ground and then nothing, nothing, but Jack’s mouth has any part of my focus.

What’s the worst that could happen?

About Tessa Bailey

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention. She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

Genres: New Adult, Romance, Suspense

He died that night, alone, in the rain, in the dark, the boy that called me baby girl.

I was only seventeen; we were going to be together forever.

On his way to pick me up for prom, he swerved. I’ll never know what made him do it, what killed the boy I’d loved my whole life. With roses clutched in his hand, he bled out in icy wetness all alone.

His best friend is here though, and I’m pretty sure he loves me.

But after the accident, I left for a year and didn’t look back.

Now I’m back in town and my heart is like shattered glass.

Do I pick up the pieces and risk getting cut? And do I let another boy call me baby girl?

MY REVIEW

This is an emotional story of how love changes and grows, even from the deepest pain.

After her fiancé dies, Embry is convinced she will never be normal, never be whole again. Pushing away her family and closest friend, she runs away from it all to college. An emergency visit home reopens all the wounds she’s kept hidden, but many surprises await her as she, reluctantly, begins letting in that close friend she ran away from 416 days before.

The author handled the issues of grief, young love, soulmates & hope in a way that was not only comforting, but made for good reading, as well.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.


EXCERPT:

“Almost there in your terms or almost there in mine?” I ask and he chuckles again, the warm, low sound sliding across my skin like hot fingertips.

“Forty-five minutes thereabouts,” he says, and I breathe a sigh of relief.  “But we’ll have to venture off the road and into the water again.”  I groan but Phoenix bumps me playfully with his shoulder, scalding me with heat.  “It’s safe out dere, not like at the shop.”  His eyes darken and I can tell he thinks he made a mistake by letting me stay there.  “I’m sorry, Embry—”

I cut him off before he can keep going.

“Please don’t apologize.  The reason I stayed at the shop was to protect you.”

“You protect me?” he grumbles and then he’s licking his lips and glancing away sharply, curling his hands into fists.  “I’m such a fuckin’ idiot, getting you dragged into this shit.  I shouldn’t have let you stay there.  It occurred to me, yeah, that they might come looking for me, but not like that.  And I didn’t think they’d recognize you none or even care.  Girls don’t have to show back up as long as they keep dere mouths shut.”

He rubs a hand over his face.

“Do we have a plan for after we get to the cabin?” I ask and Phoenix gives me this … look that I don’t know how to interpret.  My breath catches and I glance away sharply.

“What kinda plan you thinkin’ about?” he asks me, and his voice is so rumbly and low that I feel this tightening in my lower belly, this primal pull that I could almost swear Phoenix is in control of.  He gives a metaphorical tug and my body responds like it’s on a string.

“Not that sort of plan,” I whisper back, touching my fingers absently to my lips.  Phoenix notices and laughs again, that warm easy chuckle that cuts through the night and swirls around me.  “I’m not having sex with you.”

“We’re both naked and wet and aroused and you don’t know think we gonna fuck?” he asks, stopping in the middle of the road and just staring at me with that heavy-lidded gaze of his.  Phoenix’s eyes are the color of starlight through clouds, a soft, muted gray that draws me in even when I don’t want it to.

“I chose him, not you, Phoenix,” I say, and then I hate myself as soon as the words leave my mouth.  My stomach clenches tight, and with the extensive bruises, it hurts.

“I know dat,” he tells me, voice husky and thick.  “But I don’t care.”

✮✮✮ MOST LIKELY TO SCORE is here! Grab your copy today! ✮✮✮

A sexy new forbidden romance from #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely…

It should have been a simple play…

She needed a football player to step up and be the star for a charity calendar. I needed a sharp and savvy publicist to manage a brand-new sponsorship deal. I scratched her back. She scratched mine. And oh hell, did Jillian ever drag her nails down my back on one hell of a hot night. Okay fine, it was several hot nights on the road.

Now we’re back in town and it’s time to set the play clock back to when we were simply player and publicist. Given the way the last few years have gone, I can’t risk this deal, so it’s hands off for us once again. Trouble is, I want more than than just another night with her.

What’s a guy to do when he’s always been most likely to score, but the woman he’s falling for is just out of bounds?

I don’t date players.
And I definitely don’t sleep with players.
And I absolutely don’t fall for a certain player when I get to know him and learn he’s more than just sexy — he’s clever, funny and has a heart as big as his . .. well, you get my drift.

But my job is at stake, and I can’t afford to lose that as well as my heart. The problem is, I think I’ve already lost that game.

What’s a girl to do when the clock is running out, but the man she’s falling for is off limits?

MOST LIKELY TO SCORE is a brand new standalone sports romance written in dual POV!

“Most Likely to Score is another flawlessly executed story that’ll have readers laughing, sighing, blushing, and swooning as a publicist and an athlete get their shot at a Happily Ever After.” –Yvette-Nose Stuck in a Book

MY REVIEW

This book blew me away. I could tell it was going to be pretty good from the first page. Jones’ internal banter was hilarious!! I totally fell for him even before he started putting the moves on Jillian. His ability to find the lighter side of things never made him seem immature – just a guy who knew how to have fun.

Jones stole my heart further & then completely with how considerate he was of Jillian. Her reputation, success & happiness meant a lot to him, so watching him struggle to hide his feelings for her definitely increased his appeal for me.

I enjoyed the way the story flowed, even from Jillian’s POV. The author took a forbidden romance trope and made it into a story that I truly, truly enjoyed. I wholeheartedly recommend this title.

EXCERPT

~Jillian~

He runs his hand through his hair, flashing a lopsided grin then a wink. “Sorry. I meant are you my personal PR person now?”

That word zips through me like an electric charge. A light gust of wind blows my hair across my cheeks, and I tuck the strands behind my ear, grateful for the temporary distraction courtesy of San Francisco’s windy morning. I shiver lightly from the chill. “Yes, that seems to be the case, and I’m happy to do it.”

He cocks his head to the side. “Are you like my babysitter?”

My jaw drops. “What? No. No. No. That’s ridiculous. I’m not a babysitter.”

He arches a brow. “A nanny?”

I smirk. “Jones, I would hope you’ve outgrown the need for a nanny.”

“That’s up for debate, it seems. But maybe you’re my governess?”

I roll my eyes and gesture to the car at the curb. “I’m not your nanny, I’m not your babysitter, and I’m definitely not your governess. I’m here to help you create the best image possible. I can market, publicize, and help you manage putting the best foot forward,” I say, my tone earnest, my meaning important. “I believe in what I do. I know you’re a great guy, and I want the world to see what I’ve seen in the last couple days.”

“Yeah?”

“That’s why I said yes when Ford asked for my help. I’m not interested in being anyone’s au pair. I am very interested, though, in showing this city what good things our team does on and off the field. Including you.” I take a breath and try to read him. To understand what’s beneath the teasing. I think I know what it is. He wants a choice. “But if you don’t want me to help out, I’ll step back and we can stick to just the calendar. I told Ford I’d do this for your new deal, because I want to be the one to help you if you need it, and it’s the kind of help I can give. Since you signed the contract yesterday, and the folks at Paleo Pet are local, they want to stop by the shoot later today. Take some pictures, chat, and so on. I’m happy to be there by your side the whole time, making sure you’re comfortable with everything, and you’re represented in the best way possible. But if those aren’t your wishes, and if it isn’t what you need, then I’ll be hands-off. I hold up my palms as if I’m backing away.

In a heartbeat, he grabs my wrists. Possessively. A thrill rushes through me, like a drumbeat pulsing in my veins. I look away from him briefly. I can’t make eye contact when he does this, when he touches me. If I do, he’ll know. He’ll realize I’m just like all the other women who fling panties at him, who chase him down in bars, who line up at the players’ entrance to become his football floozy for the night. I won’t ever be someone’s football floozy, and I can’t let him see for a second that I want some of the same things those other women want from him. Him.

“Don’t be hands-off,” he says, his voice soft.

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don’t let the fact that I’m the leading pick in the MOST LIKELY TO SCORE charity auction fool you. These days, I’m only a player on the field. I’ve kept my pants zipped all season long — and it has been long — because nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the team owner’s recently-widowed and handsy-as-hell sister who’s dead set on winning more than a date with me.

Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.

She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me we have to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract.
Violet takes one for the team and pretends to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport, and I want it to go into overtime. The problem is — I’ve been riding the bench for years.

How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?

Author: Cindi Madsen

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: June 25th

About Counterfeit Boyfriend:

My twin brother’s talked me into a lot of crazy things, but taking his place on a road trip with his girlfriend so he can party with his friends is a whole new level of insanity. What’s even more insane is I somehow find myself agreeing to it—thanks, alcohol, guilt, and bribery. I’m determined to undo the arrangement, but then I meet Gwen, this sexy redheaded hurricane of energy and brains.

And then she kisses me. Just like that, I’m driving her up the coast, on our way to a wedding with a mess of complications. With each hour and each stop, I’m falling harder and harder for a woman who doesn’t know my actual name.

I’m trying to do the right thing. Or the lesser of the wrong things. All my life I’ve had to clean up my brother’s messes, but for the first time ever, I’ve landed the upper hand in one of our switcheroo schemes. Now I’ve just got to come clean and convince Gwen that I’m the brother she should be with.

Cover Reveal: Reckless Attraction, Vol. 1 by J.J. Knight



Reckless Attraction
J.J. Knight
Publication date: July 9th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

I wish this were the usual love story.

Boy meets girl.

Boy falls in love.

They live happily ever after.

But it’s not.

In this one, I find the most awesome girl. Chloe. Smart. Funny. Sexy as sin. With convictions. She takes risks for what she believes in.

We connect. Completely. Awesomely. It’s literally the best feeling.

But then she screws me over in the worst possible way.

__

Hudson, shut up.

You’re the one who calls yourself “Reckless.”

You’re the one who pummels people’s faces just to get your rocks off.

It’s not my fault that your ambition in MMA runs up against my need for action. I protect the innocent. You fight them.

And I can’t help that we had this instant chemistry, a powerful explosive connection I didn’t even know could exist.

But you are who you are.

And I am who I am.

I just wish you weren’t the perfect man for me.

Review

Monday Night Guy is a short, relatively low-angst read, with drama that dissipates almost as soon as it rears its head. We’re treated to the full college experience as Addison navigates this part of her life with her three closest girlfriends. Tired of being treated like dirt, Addison dumps her boyfriend and decides to take on life more proactively. Will Parker be a big part of her new life, or will he always be the jerk she knows him to be?

I really wanted to love this book, but I couldn’t. I never really felt there was any real romantic connection between the main characters. They were great people on their own, but lacked any palpable chemistry together, in my opinion. Also, I felt the plot was a bit disjointed. I wanted to stop several times, but then a new scene would develop and I’d keep reading.

While this one wasn’t to my liking, fans of YA romance will definitely enjoy it.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Release Day Blitz: The Upside of Falling (Blue Line Duet #1) by Meghan Quinn

 

 

 

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.

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.

THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVE – July 5th

This isn’t a story about a love triangle. There is no triangle involved.

This isn’t a story about an accidental pregnancy. Although having a baby with her . . . I would.

This isn’t a story about lies and deception, even though at times I’ve lied to myself.

No, this is my story.

A story about sacrifice.

A story about a man who fell in love with the wrong girl.

A story I wish I never had to tell.

This is a story about the true meaning of the downside of love.

 

 

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Excerpt Reveal: The Solution to Unrequited (The Science of Unrequited #2) by Len Webster

It’s time for a sneak peek at the solution…
The Solution to Unrequited by Len Webster is coming July 11th!

ADD TO YOUR TBR → http://bit.ly/2GVRdZB

BLURB:

Atomic number: 33
Name of chemical element: Arsenic
Symbol: As

Every solution has a poisonous flaw … even between best friends.

The agreement: Fall break together.
The struggle: A road trip from North Carolina to Massachusetts.
The reason: To find a way back into each other’s lives.
The issue: AJ’s not ready to let Evan reclaim the parts of her he made his.
The hindrance: Connecticut.

ENJOY THIS EXCERPT:

“I’ll go back home with you, Evan,” AJ said as tears formed, knowing that this was right. In order to live an honest life, she had to face her past.

She needed to free Evan and forgive him.

“You will?”

She nodded. “I realize I haven’t been fair to you. I haven’t been fair to you for a long time. What you did to me hurt, but I shouldn’t have let you go to Vegas and Stanford thinking I’d join you. I shouldn’t have kept Duke a secret.” Tears skimmed her skin. “I have missed you, and I thought I was doing the right thing. I thought you were more than capable of living a life without me. After prom, I didn’t think you’d need me in your life anymore.”

Evan shook his head. “Are you kidding?”

AJ brushed her stupid tears away.

He closed the distance in a matter of breaths, wrapping an arm around her back and digging his fingers into her hair, holding her tight. Protectively. As if he was afraid that if he let her go, it would be the end of them. Just like all the times he held her, AJ’s arms looped around his waist as her tears continued to fall onto his shirt.

She inhaled a deep breath.

The smell of him.

The feel of him.

This was home.

This was right.

“I’ll always need you,” he whispered into her ear. “Always, Alexandra. Even if you don’t need me, I’ll always need you.”

“I need you,” she confessed in a tiny, vulnerable voice. “I’ve tried not to need you, but I do.”

Evan nodded. The side of his face brushing against hers. Then, after a long moment, he pulled back. His hands settled on the sides of her neck as they had done so many times before.

This felt natural.

This felt so familiar.

No one else could hold her like this and make their marks their own on her skin.

His smile was slow to curve. It wasn’t quite full, but it was honest. It was a glimpse of the version of him she loved.

“Are you willing to trust me again?”

Unlike before, AJ nodded. “Yes, if you’re willing to trust me again.”

He let out a relieved sigh. “AJ, I trust you. While I was at Stanford, I trusted that when I finally found you, you’d let me back into your life and we’d get this all worked out.” The sound of a key being inserted into the door had Evan’s hands falling away from her face. And just as the door opened, he whispered, “No matter what happens to us, I’ll always want and need you, Alexandra.” His smile was honest, and she nodded, believing him.

About Len

THE DISTILLER’S DARLING by Rebecca Norinne & Jamaila Brinkley

Blurb:


Irish whiskey royalty has no place in Northern California, but that isn’t going to stop Iain Brennan, the black sheep of Brennan Family Distillers, from giving it a shot. Wine Country is an unlikely place to launch a whiskey empire, but Iain’s just reckless enough to make it work. And being out from under the watchful eye of his disapproving father back home in Dublin? Even better.

Naomi Klein has spent the last ten years ignoring her society family as much as possible while building a career as a renowned sculptor. She’s found a home in River Hill, but has no interest in dipping her toes into the commitment pool. Just the idea of forever gives her hives. Which makes a rootless Irish wanderer the perfect fling. And shocking her mother? Just a bonus.

But as cozy autumn nights turn into lazy winter mornings, Naomi and Iain realize that they’re getting close to something neither of them wants: love. When Naomi discovers Iain’s not quite as rootless as he seems, she’ll have to make some tough decisions. And when the Brennans and the Kleins descend en masse to collect their prodigal children, River Hill may never be the same.

EXCERPT:

Naomi slowly opened one eye and examined the ceiling until she remembered where she was. Ah, yes. The gala. The hotel. The Irishman. Yum. She yawned and stretched, feeling the burn of muscles well-used. Iain’s elevator antics had been just the start of their fun last night.

Fortunately, his room was only on the fifth floor. The elevator’s security cameras might have burst into flames if they’d traveled any higher. They’d stumbled out of the compartment and down the hall in a haze of lust, and her dress and his pants had dropped on top of each other right inside the door to his room. And then … well.

Naomi pointed her toes and smiled, feeling satisfaction spread like warmth through her body as the muscles in her legs stretched and loosened. They’d had a very good night. Iain had made good—very good—on his dirty promises of a feast. Her body had been his appetizer, entrée, and dessert … and then she’d returned the favor happily. They’d spent a great deal of time gasping, panting for breath, and moaning—and quite a bit of time laughing as well.

On the whole, she thought, definitely a night to remember.

And now it was time for the part that sometimes turned awkward: leaving.

She turned in the bed, and found him watching her through lowered lashes. “Hello,” she said.

“Good morning.” Iain reached out a lazy arm and wrapped it around her waist, tugging her body flush against his. She relaxed against his warmth for a moment, then stretched up for a quick kiss.

“Can I use your shower?”

“Be my guest,” he said with a yawn.

She slid out of the bed with a final pat on his extremely well-muscled thigh. “Thanks.”

Knowing Iain was watching her walk naked through the room, she put a bit of flair into her bend as she snagged her dress from the floor on the way into the bathroom. She heard a quick intake of breath behind her and grinned. It was nice to leave a lasting impression.

BLURB:

Allegiance, faithfulness, honor…
Loyalty goes by many names.

Emmie Landon is off-limits. She has a young son, works with my brother Jake, and lugs around enough baggage to fill an entire football stadium. But I can’t resist her long, shapely legs and thick, soft curls, begging to be wrapped around my hands.

Mark Harrington is too-everything. Too good looking, too funny, too charming, too brutally honest, too impulsive. He’s accustomed to getting his way, and never afraid to throw down the gauntlet. So what if I can’t stop thinking about his devilish blue eyes and his lip-smacking happy trail?

He needs someone to love.
She needs someone to love her.

Two seemingly incompatible lives…
Two hearts capable of total devotion.

**Despite being volume five in The New American Royals Series, Loyal Subjects may be read and enjoyed as a standalone contemporary romance.**

About Eva

After being a confirmed city-girl for more than thirty-five years, Eva moved to beautiful Western Massachusetts in 2014. There, she found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she’d been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into romantic tales.

When she’s not writing, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.
