#ReleaseBlitz: Fool for Him by @AuthorRCMartin ~ 4 stars



Fool for Him
R.C. Martin
(Foolish at Heart, #1)
Publication date: June 17th 2020
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Haunted by a history she can’t rewrite, her heart is cracked and fragile—wrapped in the lies she’s certain are true.

Teddy has played it safe for the last four years, avoiding romantic entanglements altogether. She spends her days working with her best friend at Mountain Time Art and hides behind her camera in her spare time. She’s convinced the boundaries around her heart are necessary, and her life is fulfilling enough.

The day Judah St. Michaels enters the gallery, she’s reminded her life could be more. Though, as gorgeous as the tall, handsome man in a suit may be, she’s sure he’s far from safe.

When the pull of the seductive man becomes all consuming, Teddy finds herself falling into temptation. But the deeper she gets, the louder her past demons become.

She’s irreparable, and no good man deserves that.

Goodreads / Amazon

Review

Teddy is convinced she cannot be enough for any man, but Judah’s attention makes her have second thoughts. Still, with his commitment-shy past and her insecurities, the way forward in terms of a relationship seems uncertain. Just when Teddy thinks she and Judah have found their stride, however, her past strikes with a vengeance.

Very early, the reader understands Teddy’s reticence towards the opposite sex, and her fascination with Judah, in spite of his arrogance. The push and pull between them, mainly engineered by Teddy, showed that she had backbone, and at times, revealed a strength she was hesitant to acknowledge she possessed. I understood Judah’s initial position, and to an extent admired him for it; he was who he was. I liked watching his character evolution as he developed feelings for a woman he thought would only be a passing fancy.

I wasn’t expecting a cliffhanger, so that threw me off. Up to that point, the book had my attention. The way the dual POV was written was different, but good. I enjoyed the secondary characters, too. This emotional read will suck you in so deep before you know it.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

EXCERPT:

Geoffrey was always telling me I possessed enough talent to earn a living photographing people. While art was my life, my photography was just a hobby. The pieces that surrounded me at the gallery—that was real art. Working for him and Andrew at Mountain Time Art was my dream come true. Any images I might have been able to capture through my lens was just good for the soul.

It wasn’t unusual for me to lose time in my work. Without even realizing it, I whiled away the entirety of the afternoon editing photos. My apartment was quiet, save the click of my mouse as I sharpened and cleaned up images. It was peaceful. A loud knock on my door jarred me from my solitude, and it was then that I became cognizant of the time.

I eyed the small plate beside me, sprinkled with the crumbs of a muffin long forgotten, and a pang of hunger hit me. It was like the world stood still for a while, and a single knock brought me back to reality. I was pushing myself up onto my feet when another round of rapping sounded against my door. This time, the announcement was followed by his voice.

“Freckles, it’s me.”

The sound of him made me quicken my pace. I twisted my locks free and swung open the door without hesitation. “Hey, you.” I gave him a quick once over in an effort to get a sense of his state of being.

It was unlike Geoffrey to look anything other than stylishly disheveled. He was quite handsome, in a very aryan manner. He had a head full of blond hair, which he wore in such a way that was messy but sexy at the same time. He also took exceptionally good care of his body. I called him my Viking, because he was built like one. Except, in that moment, he just looked broken, dressed in a pair of old sweats—his blue eyes sad and red-rimmed.

“What are you doing here?” I asked him, not unkindly.

“Last night, he was a fuck face,” Geoffrey mumbled. “Today—well, he’s still a prick, but he’s my prick. And he’s gone. But—I can still smell him in the bed, and see him in the shower, and hear him in the kitchen and I just…”

His words trailed off, but I didn’t need him to say any more. I reached for the paper sack in his grasp, then took his hand in mine as I pulled him inside.

“What’d you bring me?”

“A pint of coffee ice cream. The vanilla’s for me.”

As I shut and locked us in, he made his way to the couch. I trailed after him and peeked into the bag. A quiet chuckle tickled my throat when I spotted The Notebook, Crazy, Stupid Love, and Blue Valentine keeping company with our ice cream.

“Babe, you know you don’t like these movies, right? Are we just ogling Ryan Gosling tonight?”

He shrugged when I looked over at him, and that was all the answer I needed.

“Okay. Well, we should probably order in,” I informed him as I headed for the kitchen. “We’ll get sick if all we eat tonight is ice cream.”

“Pizza’s on its way. Double pepperoni.”

I stopped and peered back at him from over my shoulder. He wasn’t looking at me, his attention zeroed in on his lap, but I didn’t need to see into the windows of his soul to know how badly he was hurting. And yet, in spite of his pain, he had brought my favorite ice cream and ordered my favorite pizza.

He was right. Reeve was a fuck face, with no idea who he’d thrown away.

Author Bio:

There’s a place where your mind can escape, your body can find rest, and your heart can soar – and R.C. Martin wants to take you there.

R.C.’s journey into the world of indie-publishing began like so many of her peers – with a big dream and a basket full of rejection. Confident that she’d one day pen a book someone would say yes to, she spent years crafting stories which became the foundation of her craft. When she’d finally written “the one,” she just knew – and there was no rejection strong enough to stop her from sharing her novel with the world. In 2015 she published her debut, and the rest, as they say, is history – only far more romantic.

In a voice all her own, she strives to capture the magic of a kiss, the passion in a lovers’ embrace, and even sometimes the breathtaking ache of a broken heart. A true believer in the power of love and the grace found in redemption, you can trust this hopeless romantic to take you on an emotional ride that leaves you forever changed.

TEASERS

Review

All too often, the traumas of our childhood follow us longer than we’d like.

“Sometimes, what you want is the one thing you can’t get.”

Xander & Kimberly both come from dysfunctional homes. Broken and flawed, they somehow match: emotions, personalities & souls. When they finally clear the obstacles between them, it’s pure magic. Their love and relationship is incredible.

This story resonated with me because of the way the author made me feel about Kimberly. I felt so much of her pain, her depression & desperation through Rina Kent’s words. I actually cried while reading most of her early POV. I was so moved by what she endured and then eventually overcame, though I haven’t ever experienced anything she went through. She channeled her insecurities into engineering her transformation and her strength is a thing to be admired.

Xander was more than an @$$hole when this story started. Then, as the story continued, I couldn’t help but sympathise with him. His indifference and cruelty masked a deep pain that he didn’t know how to deal with. Yet, when it counted, he stepped up for Kimberly, and blew me away when he showed his caring side.

Before I was even 10% through with this book, I knew I wouldn’t rest til I finished it. I especially enjoyed the plot twists. This book is a heavy hitter that I recommend while echoing the author’s disclaimer.

I haven’t read the other books in the series, but I had very little trouble following the plot. I look forward to reading the other stories in the series.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

She was a laughingstock.

A hippie. A tree-hugger. A granola, crunchy, millennial who worried about how her food was grown and what she put into her body and GMOs and . . .

Had a secret chocolate addiction.

Because even though she cared about all of those things, a girl had to live too. And Rebecca couldn’t live her life without 90% Cacao Super Dark Chocolate.

Addictions aside, it was her job to help keep the players on the San Francisco Gold healthy and she was damned good at it, so her hippie, granola background (and maybe also her PhD in Nutritional Sciences) had come in handy, at least to some degree.

Especially since the team had taken home the league’s top prize last season.

Unfortunately, not everyone thought her contributions were important.

In fact, some people—cough one Dr. Gabe Carter—thought her position with the team was unnecessary. He thought her diet was too restrictive, her meal plan too out there. He’d actually told Rebecca that her program hadn’t been an important factor in the Gold’s successful season.

But dammit, she knew she’d made a difference with the team, knew her work was important, and it didn’t matter that Gabe was gorgeous and a talented doctor, he still didn’t have any right to—

Kiss her.

No.

Kiss her or make her feel small.

Yes, that. The second one. He was a jerk. She didn’t like him or care about his opinions and she definitely wasn’t in love with him. Definitely hadn’t been in love with him the moment she’d laid eyes on him—

Sigh.

She definitely was.
And to make matters worse? Gabe knew.

Review
Not only is this a great, angst-y introduction to a series, but it is a pretty good read.

Sage Miller has lost the only living relative she has – or so she believes until her aunt invites her to live with her. Life has taught her not to trust anyone easily. Thrust into a new, unfamiliar world where wealth & influence are rulers, she quickly realises that she has to rely on her street smarts more than ever to survive.

Brighton Academy’s walls aren’t meant to house the frail or weak-spirited. Sage learns this, up close & personal. She’s no shrinking violet, though, and her spirit not only catches people’s attention, but it acts as an unlikely source of inspiration for many.

Reed Yates is the king of the Brighton Academy. A bully of sorts, he quickly realises that Sage will not be controlled. The wealth of his family – nor hers – can bribe her. How far will he go to prove he can win in their back-and-forth games?

I enjoyed this book. I couldn’t help but admire Sage. She understands her situation, and for a young adult, is at peace with so much. When she realises that her new family really does accept her for who she is, she blossoms, even without realising it.

The author did good with character development, and I really look forward to reading the rest of this gang’s future exploits.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Excerpt
“Reed,” I warn.
“Yes?” His voice is
tinged with humor.
“I think your
pancakes are burning.” 
“That’s okay. I made
plenty, and I quite like where I am.” He laughs while moving a tiny bit closer,
his chest flush with my back as he trails his hands softly down my sides.
“Are you excited to
see me, Reed?” I tease while trying to cover up how turned on I am.
“It’s those
thigh-high socks. Who knew they could be so sexy?” he teases right back.
“Reed? We’re not
doing this,” I warn.
“We will, just not
today. But you better get used to the idea of us, Sage, because we’re going to
happen,” he states before kissing my neck. He pushes off me and goes back to
the pancakes.

Blurb:
I was only trying to help a friend. I swear. I was legit asking for a friend who was finally ready to date again.

I knew what she wanted in a man — smart, funny, ambitious, well-read (no, the sports section doesn’t count), and plays a wicked game of badminton.

So I did what any good friend would do. Posted it for her. It seemed like a good idea at the time — I’d weed through the candidates, and bring her my top picks.

But then he responded.

Is it wrong to date the guy I screened for my bestie? Not asking for a friend.

Excerpt:
Betty Boop: I’m not offended. I feel like if you were trying to pick up a woman for BDSM play, you’d be on a different app.

Dax Powers: Whew. Thank you. Which also reminds me that I need to switch over to my Paddle Me Please app and keep up the convo there with Ms. Bend Me Over the Chair.

Betty Boop: No worries. I’ll be on Spank Me Tonight, so I guess we’ll miss each other.

Dax Powers: Good luck. I hear all the pongers hang out on Spank Me Tonight.

Betty Boop: Oh damn, you are good!

Dax Powers: Thank you. I am indeed quite good. *inserts devil emoticon*

Betty Boop: And a little cocky too?

Dax Powers: Just a little. But you know what it’s like when you’re champion of a nerd sport, Miss Badminton Champion.

Betty Boop: Hey, you’re assuming I’m a nerd.

Dax Powers: Am I wrong, Miss Badminton Champion? *smirks*

I gulp, nearly dropping my phone in the drain as I cross the street. Shitballs on fire. How do I reply to this? I glance around as if I can locate the answer on the sidewalk.

Am I Peyton? Or me? Do I remind him I’m asking for a friend? It was in the profile though. The description closed with “asking for a friend,” for Pete’s sake.

It must be obvious.

Okay, fine, maybe he thinks I meant it to be tongue-in-cheek.

Someone could certainly read it as tongue-in-cheek.

Because the entire saying is tongue-in-cheek, and no one is ever asking for a friend—they’re asking for themselves.

Ugh.

So I was only honest on a technicality.

My stomach swoops, and a teeny bit of guilt weaves through me.

Who am I kidding? This is a massive, crushing tsunami of guilt.

Ping-Pong Lover Mad Flosser Dax Powers is a darling. Chatting with him is better than drinking a vanilla latte.

And I can’t lie. I won’t lie to this potential suitor.

As I walk along the park, making my way toward Little Friends, I return to the chat, drawing a deep breath.

Second chances burn hotter

The assignment should be a fashion stylist’s dream. Dane Scotland—brilliant programmer, millionaire, partner in my brother’s company—is going to a big-money meeting, and he needs to look the part.

The problem? Dane doesn’t want a makeover. He’s grumpy and reclusive, and his wardrobe consists of two pairs of old jeans. He doesn’t want me anywhere near him.

Did I mention that he’s my brother’s best friend? And that no one knows exactly what Dane and I got up to ten years ago?

The nerd I knew is gone—Dane ditched his glasses and bulked up. Now he’s six-foot-plus of hot genius, but I can be professional. I can definitely keep my hands off him. Again.

But when he looks at me like he used to, like no one else ever has, the only thing I want is to lose control.

Dane and I gave each other our first taste of heartbreak. Are we destined for another round?

Blurb
Holly Vanderbilt is running.
From her past, her present, her future – everything.
Baking is her only solace. Cookies, cakes, ingredients coming together, they make sense.
A professional fighter walking into her kitchen? Not so much.
Vince Steele is focused on his future.
The next fight.
The next win.
Nothing else matters except feeling the weight of the Light Heavyweight belt around this waist.
Until Holly.
He has what it takes to win the belt.
But will Holly’s past prove to be an opponent he can’t beat?
He’s never backed down from a fight.
He wasn’t going to start now, not when winning Holly’s heart could be the sweetest victory of all.
The Coven is back and about to recruit a new member. SWEET VICTORY is the third book in the BTU Alumni series and can be read as a stand-alone. This book features a Christmas-loving hot mess of a baker, an alpha-dirty-talking MMA fighter, and the best group of friends ever (even if they don’t know how to mind their own business). HEA guaranteed—being on Santa’s Nice List…not so much.

Review
Whew! I can’t recommend this book enough!

A baker on the run from her past, a dirty-talking MMA fighter who would do anything to make her stay put & the Coven??? I was ready!! I was excited to see how the couples I’d met so far were doing, plus catch up on the latest family additions.

Vince isn’t in a rush to settle down, despite his mother’s goading. When he sees Holly for the first time, though, he immediately knows she’s THE ONE. A bit love-and-relationship-shy, Holly puts up all the walls to avoid falling for Vince, but Vince always wins, and he wants to win Holly so bad.

I liked that he was willing to be patient, and put in the effort despite her many misgivings. He charmed me completely almost from the beginning of the novel, and I couldn’t wait for Holly to swoon with me.

In terms of entertainment, Alley Ciz does not disappoint. I couldn’t decide whether I preferred the banter or the at times hilarious trash talk the characters dished out. I also liked the way that the author shows how important friends can be in repairing and creating self confidence. An underlying theme in this series is that friends can become family.

I am really invested in this series now. It keeps getting better and better.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Author Bio
Alley Ciz is an indie author of Contemporary/New Adult, Rom-Com, Sports Romances.
She’s a stay at home mom to 3 amazing and crazy mini royals, a 95lb lab, and let’s face it on some days her hubby is her 4th kid… But to be fair she totally loves him a lot.
When she’s not corralling her crazy mini royals she can be found writing the stories the voices in her head tell her. Caffeine is a staple in her daily diet since she does most of her writing late at night when the rest of her house is asleep, usually with her trusty dog Buke (short for Beukeboom reluctantly named after a NY Ranger even though she’s a NJ Devils fan all the way.) Is it any surprise she writes sports romances?
Pizza and mac-n-cheese are major food groups and she is a proud Potterhead and superhero buff.
She is a complete romance junkie and can always be found reading or listening to a book.
