How do you send a fake relationship into overdrive?
Turn it into something real.
With your best friend’s ex.
Who hates you.

My life is about risk – racing cars for a living. So, a fake girlfriend should have been no more dangerous than anything else.

It was supposed to be temporary, just a few fake meet-ups, nothing too serious.
A small white lie to help fix my so-called “bad” reputation.

Who would have thought I’d want more than a few dates?
Not me.

Or that the girl who was supposed to be my fake something would turn into my very real everything?
Also not me.

The question is, do I let her believe it’s all still pretend?

Or tell her how I feel and wait to see what happens?

Review

Jace has racked up many indiscretions lately, and needs a quick, believable image rehab. The idea to choose his PR agent as his fake girlfriend seems excellent, but their fake show soon has real feelings. Can he trust these new, unfamiliar feelings?

Charlie is suckered into being Jace’s fake girlfriend. Disbelieving of his ability to keep up the ruse, she is pleasantly surprised when the Jace she gets seems completely different from the man she thought she always knew. Can this bad boy leopard change his spots?

I really, really liked Jace & Charlie – Jace especially. The book was funny and sweet, with just a bit of drama. I would have liked for some resolution for Charlie career-wise, but otherwise, it was a great read that I absolutely recommend.

About the Author

Denise has been reading since before she could talk. And to this day, escaping into a book is her go-to activity before anything else.

She likes to write about sassy women and semi-flawed alpha-esque men (hard on the outside and just a little soft on the inside.) Denise’s female characters always have strong friendships, potty mouths, and like to drink—a lot.

Denise is loyal to a fault, a bit too sarcastic, blindingly optimistic, and pretty freakin’ happy with life overall. If she couldn’t be a writer, she’d be a singer in a classic rock band. Right after she learned to carry a tune. She has more purses than days in the month, an obsession with colored ink pens, and a slightly unhealthy bracelet habit.

Home is in the Pacific Northwest where she lives with five Siberian Huskies and a husband (BW) who has the patience and tolerance of a saint. And, lest she forget, Denise also lives with too many to count characters inside her head, who will eventually have their stories told.

Review Blitz: The Rocker by Harlow Layne ~ 4 stars

 Release Date: February 17

The moment I saw her, I knew she’d be mine.

 

The only problem is she’s my band’s manager, and if we get caught, she loses her job.

 

I only wanted one night with her. One night to fuck her out of my system and be done with her.

 

The only problem is after one taste of Pen, I’m addicted. I can’t get enough of her, and she’s pushing me away.

 

She says what we had is a lapse in judgement, but I have to disagree. It’s the most sane thing I’ve ever done, and I’ll do anything to get her back underneath me, beside me, and to make her mine even if that means ruining what I’ve worked so hard to build up.

Review
From the moment they meet, Pen & Walker are drawn to each other, but contract clauses and insecurities have them – especially Pen – wary. But as their feelings deepen and it becomes harder to hide how happy they make each other, will their love story have a happy ending?

This had a pretty good angst-y vibe to it, with lots of off-stage drama that kept me hooked on the story. I really liked Walker, and he and Pen were really great together, with great chemistry between them.

I recommend this read. Pen & Walker’s story isn’t all sweetness and smooth sailing, but it sure is one that was good to read.

Release Blitz: Sex and the Stage by Ida Brady ~ 4 stars

Title: Sex and the Stage
Series: Sweet, Sexy, Scandalous Series #2
Author: Ida Brady
Genre: Short Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 15, 2021
 
After years of training, Alejandro is finally competing in the World Tango Championship. The only problem is, he’s distracted by his dance partner’s…ahem. Taking her hard and fast and up against the wall is the perfect way to settle their performance nerves. Who could blame him when Mathilda’s see-through dress leaves nothing to the imagination?
 
That face. Those thighs. That ass.
 
The blonde bombshell gets his Argentinian blood pumping. Tonight is no exception. Mathilda makes him feel like he’s king of the dance floor. So when a blast from the past attempts to cause trouble, Alé steps in, ready to protect his queen.
 
Little does he realize, his queen has already made her move.
 
 

Review Graphic
We are reintroduced to Alé & Tilda once more. Now married, they are competing for the title in the World Tango competition. Still as attracted to his wife as he was the day he first saw her, his confidence is riding an all-time high. However, his past isn’t quite as willing to let him be at peace.

Tilda’s emotional growth is showcased in this little bite, as is Alé’s understanding that she can stand up for herself. I liked the forward glimpse we get of Alé & Tilda’s life. Less dramatic, but still as intriguing as well as steamy, it was like an epilogue.

Review

Mma is just beginning her first job. Despite her family’s problems, she is determined to be her own woman, and live her own life. A night out with her sisters sees her meeting Fuad and she ends up giving him her virginity. After an unforgettable night, she decides to leave it in the past, but then she finds out she is pregnant, and Fuad demands her hand in marriage so their baby can have a good home. She is hesitant, as she wants her marriage to be a love match.

Fuad hasn’t been able to forget the night he and Mma had. Shocked at her pregnancy, he does what he thinks is right, but warns her that she can never expect love. He is a player and believes that he will always be one. But as they plan the wedding and he gets to know his unwilling wife a little better, his mind just might change.

I enjoyed this romance. It has humor, heart and a bit of steam. It’s the first time that I am reading one like it, and I truly liked the way that the author incorporated a different culture into the story line. I had a fun time Googling the different African words as I read.

I recommend this book wholeheartedly.

Review

Evelyn Sola is good!

The book begins with all the excitement promised in the blurb: Mellie wakes up married in Vegas, but flees as she believes it to be a giant mistake. However, her new husband, Adam, isn’t about to let her go that easily; after all, he’s been pursing her for two years. As they struggle to figure out love and married life, Mellie’s less than amicable relationship with her mother and Adam’s own complicated issues with his family manage to interfere.

I enjoyed this romance. I was on the fence about liking Mellie initially, but before I even passed 10% of the book, she’d claimed a spot in my heart. Her character is relatable. Her reticence towards Adam stems from her family issues, but it is admirable that she worked hard at attempting to stand up for herself.

Adam was on my “YES!” list from the beginning – I liked his alpha possessive yet sweet and tender attitude toward Mellie. There is no way a woman who has a man like him in her life doesn’t know she is loved.

The book reminds us that most issues are solvable once all parties involved are reasonable, as well as willing to work through them, and prepared to take responsibility where necessary. It also shows that some hurts never fully heal once inflicted because words are powerful.

I recommend this read wholeheartedly and unreservedly. Adam & Mellie will certainly thrill you with their chemistry and relationship origin story. The cast of secondary characters – and a few familiar faces – will also leave you highly entertained.

Excerpt

Copyright 2021 Evelyn Sola

“Okay.” She takes several deep breaths before coming to stand in front of me. “I’m going to need a little time to find my own place, but in the meantime, I need a small favor from you.” I arch my eyebrows at her declaration. “I need you to let me stay here. At least until Alex has that baby.” I sit on the couch and put my hands behind my head. I school my features so she won’t see how happy I am by her announcement.

“Is that right?” I ask.

“Yes. Do you know why, Adam? Because it’s the least you can do after what you did to me in Vegas. Besides, Jason always folds where our mother is concerned. She drops this bombshell, and he’s too much of a nice guy to tell her to GTFO. So”, she says, sighing deeply, “I guess I can sleep on the couch, but it would be nice if you would let me have the bed.”

“The bed is yours.” I quickly agree to her demand. She stops her pacing, turns to me and narrows her eyes. “But let’s get one thing straight. I didn’t do anything to you in Vegas, so you can stop that lie right the hell now.”

“I’ll pay rent of course,” she says, ignoring my last comment. “Name your price.” I stand up and go stand directly in front of her. She backs away and ends up stuck between my body and the wall. “I’d go stay with Ananda, but she just got married and I don’t want to be a nuisance to her right now, and a hotel would cost too much money and would set me back. Dammit.”

“And you hate being alone, so I’m your next best choice.”

“How do you know I hate being alone?” She crosses her arms and stares.

“You live with your brother and his family. You hardly ever go anywhere by yourself. I bet you never had any intentions of moving out. You only offered to move out knowing they would ask you to stay.” She scoffs and moves away from me. I watch her tight ass pace across my living room, and I will my body not to have its natural reaction.

I reach out, touch her arm, and she stops walking away. When she looks at me again, I see the uncertainty in her eyes. The fire from minutes ago is gone, and the only things left are the vulnerability and unease oozing out of her. It’s the same look she had on New Year’s Eve. I’ve noticed it before, and I’ve always wondered why. Why someone so beautiful, smart and loved by so many people would always have this air of loneliness, but I think I finally got my answer tonight.

#ReleaseBlitz #ReviewBlitz: At First Sight by @sdmichalove ~ #3stars

At First Sight by Sharon Michalove is now live!

She wants a partner she can trust but he can’t stop hiding his past

Oxford, England 1993. An awkward American grad student runs into a gorgeous English undergrad with her bicycle. She’s embarrassed. He’s intrigued. They go their separate ways, but neither forgets.

Chicago, Illinois 2013. When Cress Taylor starts receiving anonymous threats, the successful novelist feels her world crashing down. Max Grant turns up at a book signing and wants to renew their fleeting acquaintance. Is the timing coincidental or suspicious? Should she fall into his arms or run like hell? Then the plagiarism accusations start.

A former spy now working for a global security company, Max Grant has always steered clear of relationships—until now. When he sees Cress in a TV interview, his curiosity ignites. Will the spark he felt twenty years ago burst into flame? Cress is a magnet he can’t resist. As threats escalate to physical danger, Max feels driven to protect Cress. They must learn to work together if they want to stop her nemesis and find their happy ending.

Review

Max Grant is finally brave enough to pursue his attraction to Cress Taylor 20 years after a fleeting moment at University. But her wariness and distrust, and his own troubled past as an MI6 operative aren’t his only obstacles. Someone is willing to go to great lengths to ensure that Cress’ reputation dies a fiery death. Max has to hope the fire doesn’t expunge their fledgling relationship – and Cress – too.

If you are looking for action-packed, danger-filled suspense, this book is not it. The villain was obvious from the beginning. The author’s use of descriptive prose is great, but it sort of worked against the development of the romance itself. Cress & Max sort of just seem to fall together against the backdrop of threats, rather than fall in love in spite of the threats.

I liked Max. He was upfront with his feelings towards Cress, and did his best to be what he felt she needed. I just wish there was more time devoted to their actual romance. I especially liked that the couple was older. And I liked their meet-cute and the fact that neither had forgotten the other even after so many years.

Looking for a clean/fade-to-black slow burner romance? At First Sight will definitely please you.

#ReleaseBlitz #ReviewBlitz: Just One Chance by @carlyphillips ~ 4.5 stars

Release Date: October 12

He thought she was the one . . . until she walked away.  Now she’s back and he wants her more than ever.

 

As a former Marine, Xander Kingston’s writing keeps him sane.  Bonus? His thrillers made him one of Hollywood’s most desired screenwriters – and also introduced him to a fledgling starlet who broke his heart. With his close-knit family in New York, Xander returned home and found peace. Until Sasha Keaton shows up at his Hamptons retreat. Now an A-Lister, she’s as beautiful as he remembers. And just as dangerous to his heart.

 

Sasha learned from watching her mother to never sacrifice her dreams for anyone—only to discover how empty life could be without the man she loved. Now cast in Xander’s latest movie, she needs his insight to play the part, but secretly hopes for a second chance.

 

Xander has built emotional walls to keep Sasha at a distance, but their physical attraction can’t be denied. When a stalker’s threats intensify, Xander moves Sasha into his house to keep her safe. Before long she’s back in his bed and making inroads in his life. 

 

But when the danger passes and the movie wraps, Sasha and Xander face a familiar choice—put career first or give love a fighting chance.

Review

Xander & Sasha are given a second chance after their first chance at a relationship crashed and burned around the same time that Sasha’s career as an actress took off four years ago. She signs on to be the lead actress in Xander’s thriller book-to-movie adaptation series, forcing a confrontation.

At the end of Just One Scandal, we were given a peek into what this book would entail. I honestly expected an angst-ridden romance, but I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t. This second time around proved that the two had indeed matured during their time apart. Theirs is a touching, soothing romance. Yes, there was some angst, as well as a bit of tension, but they both put aside their egos and tried to work things out. The suspense was a nice touch, too.

I really enjoyed this read, and I recommend it. I can’t wait for Dash & Cassidy’s story.

Review

Veritas is a complex, deep read that will make you think.

Maria Tavares is 34 and one of the best attorneys at her firm, yet her contributions are overlooked and she is passed over for partner repeatedly. Determined to try to figure out if she truly is the obstacle to her life moving forward, she decides to go to therapy. The decision has a domino effect, bringing her past, present and future together in a way she never planned.

“Sometimes the things we thought we wanted the most aren’t the things that are right for us.”

Jordan Kovacs can’t get the beautiful woman with whom he spent one glorious night with last October, but she’s made it clear that she wants to forget him and pretend their night together never happened. Known to not back down from a challenge, Jordan has tried every trick in his arsenal to have Maria in his arms again. Victory comes when he accepts an invitation from the woman herself to a wedding as her plus one. Knowing he has but a short time, Jordan tries not to spook Maria with how quickly his feelings for her have grown, but secrets on both their parts could threaten what shaky foundation they already have.

“I wanted Maria Tavares – breakfast, lunch and dinner, and any other way I could have her… I wanted to be the source of her happiness and her scorn.”

With lots of characters, emotions and a quick pace, Veritas is a read that makes sure you have to pay attention in order for the pieces of the puzzle to fit and fall into place. You will run the gamut of emotions for each of the characters as you read, especially Maria, as she she struggles with her identity and tries to sort out her feelings. Relinquishing control has never been her forte, and she struggles throughout the book. By the end of the book, though, I had a healthier respect for her, as she grew and matured.

I recommend this steamy, off-the-charts-chemistry, complicated read. You’ll be glued to its pages, and thinking about it days afterward.

#ReleaseBlitz #ReviewBlitz: A Moment for Us by @AuthorCMichaels ~ #4stars

A Moment For Us by Corinne Michaels is now live!

New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels returns to Willow Creek Valley in this stunning surprise baby/unrequited love romance.

I was totally over Joshua Parkerson.

Sure, I had a teenage crush on him way back when–and everyone knew it–but he never saw me as anything but his little brother’s friend, the girl who got tongue-tied any time he walked into a room.

I had long ago accepted the fact that his strong arms would never hold me, his lush lips would never claim mine, and his blue eyes would never see me as anything more than who I used to be.

But now he’s back in Willow Creek Valley, and there’s a brand-new spark between us–even he can’t fight it. Our chemistry is explosive, and every time we’re together, I swear I can feel the earth shake.

It doesn’t mean anything… how could it? I’m over him.

Until I see that little pink plus sign, and the earth stops turning completely.

Now I want it all again, a life with him. But Joshua built walls around his heart for a reason, and his secrets haunt him.

How can I show him that the ghosts of his past don’t have to define our new family’s future?

Review

Corinne Michaels hurts your heart before putting it back together, and A Moment for Us takes you through all the feels.

Delia is a heroine that is very relatable since we’ve all been in her position at one time or another: hopelessly in love with someone who doesn’t seem to love us back, much less know we exist. While we knew she was setting herself up for pain, we still rooted for her and Josh to find a way to each other.

Josh was a bit… difficult. I understand why he was hesitant about babies, but I found that he treated Delia unfairly, initially, before realising that he had strong feelings for her.

I haven’t read any of the other books in the series, so I had a little trouble keeping all the names straight. I wasn’t expecting the book to be so sad, but I couldn’t stop reading it. With lots of emotions and a teaser of an ending, A Moment for Us will break your heart, but will restore you by its end.

#ReleaseBlitz #ReviewBlitz: Doctor Scandalous by @jasamanbooks ~ #5stars

From USA Today bestselling author J. Saman comes a brand new Kindle-melting romance about one of Boston’s most notorious billionaire bachelors and the woman who flips his entire world upside down.

I’ve been dreading this for a year.
Okay, that’s a lie. I’ve been dreading this reunion since we graduated high school ten years ago.
So why am I here, standing outside the door like the eternal wallflower I am?
I’d say it’s because my younger sister browbeat me into it, but the truth is, I’m tired of being a nobody. Of never taking a risk with myself and my life.
And…well…maybe I’m also hoping to see him.
The tall, insanely gorgeous man walking my way now. Oliver Fritz is regarded as one Boston’s sexiest doctors. I know him as the former god of our school. The one every girl wanted, and every guy wanted to be.
The one as loathsome to be here as I am.
That’s when he makes the proposal I’ve always dreamed of. Only, this one is fake. On bended knee, he places a ring on my finger and proposes we brave this reunion together, with me as his fake fiancée. But when our wild and steamy night ends in scandal, we’re forced to make a deal.
He gives me what I need, and in return I stay his fake fiancée, so he doesn’t lose face with the media who love him or his sick mother. Should be easy, right? Just a few months pretending to be engaged to one of Boston’s most notorious billionaire bachelors. What could go wrong?
Turns out everything.

Review

If you’re a fan of J. Saman’s work (I recently discovered her), then some of the characters in this book will be familiar to you. Oliver Fritz is the charming, sexy playboy we met in the Edge of Temptation, and I fell for him then, even though he wasn’t the hero of that novel. In this book, we meet a more vulnerable, but no less lovable version of the good doctor.

Still smarting due to a heartbreak from 10 years prior, Oliver is dreading going to his high school reunion. When he rescues Amelia, his childhood crush from embarrassment, he sees a way to make their already uncomfortable night into one they’ll enjoy and never forget. Only, as their fake relationship story gains traction, so do their very real feelings.

“I’m home with her. And no matter what comes our way, I’m not letting her go.”

Amelia is accustomed to being a wallflower, so Oliver’s proposition terrifies her as much as it excites her. As they “date”, she realises Oliver seems to bring out the best parts in her, but she’s worried that, as the spotlight on them begins to burn brighter and brighter, it would all fade away, and she’ll be left all alone, as usual.

“When it comes to Oliver Fritz, I have no idea how I’ll make it through these few months with my heart intact.”

This romance is sweet, sexy and altogether lovely. I really loved Oliver & Amelia’s story. Oliver is swoon-worthy – a total sweetheart. He’s so good to Amelia, and I loved how he included her sister. Amelia is a great heroine. She’s been pushed down and around a lot, but she keeps getting up, even when it hurts. I liked her determination and strength, and the bit of fire she had in her.

I recommend this romance unreservedly & wholeheartedly. J. Saman takes you deep into these pages as she crafts a romance within a romance. A do-over with the sweetest of twists. She also ensured that I would be looking forward to more of these Fritz men and their journeys to love.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.
