Blurb:

They say it happens when you least expect it.

It did for me.

It started the moment I saw the simple message pop up on my computer screen:

Cameron’s Mac: Hi.

And when I met the eyes of the gorgeous man messaging me from across the coffee shop, I never thought my reply would lead to the most intense, sexual, and passionate relationship of my life.

We both agreed to check our bags at the door and put our future hopes and aspirations on the table.

It worked.

I fell in love with his no holds barred attitude, sexy smirk, and undeniably good heart . . . and for a while we forgot about our baggage. We happily tripped over it to get to the other, neither of us willing to show the contents of our pasts in the off chance it could ruin us.

We built our love on a foundation of gray.

It was life in black and white that threatened to tear us apart.

EXCERPT:

Cameron’s Mac: Hi.

I looked above my laptop and took a deep breath before I accepted his invitation.

Abbie’s Mac: Hi.

Abbie, he’s going to wear your skin! I tried to ignore my inner voice.

Cameron’s Mac: I saw you with the homeless guy.

Abbie’s Mac: Ok?

He took a sip out of his Real Men Love Pomeranians mug and shrugged before he typed.

Cameron’s Mac: So, that was nice of you. Most people in the city just walk on by.

Abbie’s Mac: Oh. Most people do walk past Bennie. But he’s different and I’m not most people.

He lifted a brow and bit his lip.

Cameron’s Mac: I see that. 

Cameron’s Mac: Want to have your next cup with me?

Say yes, say yes! It’s only coffee!

Abbie’s Mac: No, thank you.

You idiot.

His brows drew tight with his frown.

Cameron’s Mac: Sure? How about some breakfast?

My pulse raced with the memory of my last reaction to that type of attention and the consequences, and I answered without another thought.

Abbie’s Mac: No, thanks.

His chuckle was deep and covered me, even across the space between us. He bit his full bottom lip as he typed, his smirk still intact.

Fuck. Me. Damn it, Abbie!

Cameron’s Mac: Well, I guess today is not my day.

Abbie’s Mac: That’s all you’ve got?

I had no clue why I sent that message . . . why I was bothered that he didn’t try harder. Just that fucking smirk. It was sexy as hell.

He read my message and shrugged as he typed.

Cameron’s Mac: You seem to enjoy coffee. I don’t have an agenda. You’re beautiful, I noticed. I wanted to drink coffee with you. You said no. I’m going to scrape up the rest of my pride now and head out.

He closed his laptop and stood while I deflated. Damn it. He was being nice. Since when are guys just . . . nice?

Am I a man hater? Have I become that woman?

I spoke up as he slipped his computer into a worn leather bag.

“I’m sorry,” I offered in quick apology. “I was expecting some horrible line or screwed up proposition. The web, messaging, anything that has to do with technology has been hazardous for me. I’ve seen enough unsolicited dick pics for a lifetime. I was just being cautious.” And that was the truth. But I’d said it aloud in verbal vomit. Did I really say “dick pics” out loud?

He chuckled again as he looked down at me from where he stood, then grinned.

“Today isn’t the right day.” The husky baritone of his voice matched the silky hue of his eyes, which seemed to darken as he looked me over.

“No?” I asked in a whisper as I sized up his six-foot-plus frame and imagined the possibilities.

“No,” he said. “Maybe we can not have coffee again sometime?”

He’d tapped out with a simple ‘no’ from me. He couldn’t have been that interested in the first place.

I couldn’t deny the disappointment welling up in my ovaries.

Okay.” I lifted the last syllable when he didn’t press further.

Cameron pulled out his wallet and set some money on his table then walked over to mine and did the same.

“At least let me buy your next cup.”

After setting the bills down, he stood over me briefly and I caught his scent—purely masculine. I inhaled as much as I could without being obvious. He didn’t smell like a psycho.

Cameron picked up his man–bag while I pictured running my fingers through his messy, inches thick, dark-brown hair.

Don’t let him leave. Tell him you aren’t that big of a bitch. But that would seem desperate. You aren’t desperate. But you are horny. Omg, are you horny??

As if reading my thoughts, I caught another flash of his teeth and had to bite my cheek to keep my reaction in check.

“I’ll see you.”

“Yeah, see you. And thanks,” I said to his retreating back, an octave louder than necessary. “For the coffee,” I added. Outside the window, Cameron bent and exchanged words with Bennie before sticking some cash in his hand.

Well, Abbie. Guess you’ll just have to wait until the next time you roll out of bed and a beautiful man hits on you. Should happen again, you IDIOT!

Once again, my hesitance had cost me. And I couldn’t help but feel like this time it cost me big.

Sagging into my seat, I continued to stare in his direction, watching those broad shoulders walk out of my life.

#TheSecretThief #NinaLane #NewRelease #soHot #review

Natasha’s Review

Ladies Nina Lane has gone and given us another Master Piece. 6 Stars…

She has given two characters that you wanna hug. You wanna just tell them to trust but you understand from their pasts why they struggle.

What a beautiful ride these characters have take us on.

Words will not do this book justice but I will try…. Just know if you are a Nina Lane Fan you will definitely not be disappointed.

Flynn and Eve are such beautiful characters. Their lives have brought them pain and heartache.

They both have made mistakes some I really didn’t like but what’s important they knew it was wrong and didn’t go one forever with them.

These were strong they just didn’t know it until they found their Better half.

Eve’s Mother is like Cruella DeVill but I’m so glad Eve moved past her. And didn’t let her mother ruin her. She fought and stayed Fighting, in the end she got the Guy, and her Fairytale Ending

These Characters have Amazing chemistry and when they come together it’s like more Heat and Magic.

Enjoy this beautiful emotional read.

Behind his beautiful eyes
Lay a thousand secrets and lies.
But my own secrets are all laid bare
The twisted reality of a disgraceful affair.
I once deciphered the mysteries hidden in art
Then mistakes and desire tore me apart.
Now I’m shipwrecked at the end of the earth
Desperate again to prove my worth.
The lighthouse keeper is a stranger to me
Yet one night with him sets me free.
We find ourselves united by the stars above
Both of us needing the salvation of love.
Until our secrets and shame continue to build
And what was flourishing will soon be killed.

TST teaser4.png

EXCERPT
The minute Flynn opens the workroom door, my whole body zings with excitement and anticipation.
Even with his dark frown, the remoteness surrounding him like an aura, the clipped tone of his voice, I
react to him as if he were stroking my hair and whispering sweet nothings in my ear.
Jeremy hadn’t come close to eliciting anything even close to this…which is exactly the reason I’ll
go out with him again, if he asks me. Jeremy is solid, grounded, honest. Everything about Flynn is a
mystery and a fantasy. I’d gotten caught up in a fantasy with David—whose “mystery” had been a
lie—and I’d paid the price.
Never again.
“How was your weekend?” I set my satchel and lunch bag on the desk.
“Fine. Yours?”
“Great.” I give him a once-over, looking for evidence of an encounter with a chick, but while he
looks edible in his worn jeans and T-shirt, like a warm, rumpled bed I could nestle right into, his
demeanor is as impassive as ever.
Does he ever smile? Every now and then I’ve caught a glimpse of amusement, a twitch of his
mouth, but I’ve yet to see him fully smile.
“Any special instructions for today?” I turn on the laptop computer and open my notebook.
“Stay away from Jeremy King.”

Shock bolts down my spine. I jerk my head up to stare at him. He’s watching me with a
narrowed gaze, his mouth set in a stern line.
“Um…what?” I can’t get another word out.
“Stay away from him,” Flynn repeats. “He’s not good for you.”
Irritation breaks past my shock. “How would you know who is or isn’t good for me? You’ve
barely said twenty words to me the whole week I’ve been working here.”
“I don’t need to say anything to know the facts.” His tone hardens. “I don’t want you around
him.”
“Well, you have no right to tell me that,” I retort. “How did you know I went on a date with him
anyway?”
His jaw tightens. “You think people around here don’t take notice when their favorite son is out
having dinner with the new girl in town?”
Christ. I experience a sudden longing for the cold anonymity of a big city.
“I know people are talking about me,” I snap. “But I refuse to let gossip dictate what I can and
can’t do. And for your information, Jeremy knows about what happened to me, and it didn’t seem to
bother him.”
“That’s not the point. You can’t work for me and see him.”
My shoulders tense. I focus on the computer, hitting the key to bring up the database software.
“My date with Jeremy has nothing to do with my work here,” I reply stiffly. “I didn’t, and won’t,
tell him anything about the job or the fact that you’re my employer. You don’t need to worry about
breach of contract.”
“This isn’t about the damned contract.” His voice is suddenly sharp.
He steps closer to me, his soapy, warm scent filling my nose. I hold my ground, not wanting him
to see me weaken even though I’m melting inside at his nearness. Impassive though he is on the
exterior, I can almost feel the energy coursing through him, his heavy strong heartbeat, the rush of his
blood.

“I don’t want you around King,” he repeats.
“Does your animosity have something to do with him wanting to sell the lighthouse?”
“I’m not answering questions.” His gray eyes turn the color of metal. “I’m telling you to stay
away from him.”
My pulse races. “You don’t have that right.”
“I’m your boss.”
“That doesn’t mean you can make that demand.” The words snap out of my mouth without
thought. “And if you think you can threaten to fire me over this, then step back, mister, because I’ve
been through the worst wrongful termination I can imagine. And even though my employer fucking won
that battle, I still have plenty of fight left in me. I’ll put on my gloves and go another round with you, if I
have to.”
Wow. Go, Eve.
I’m breathing fast, and my knees are quaking with sudden fear that he’ll make me prove my
bold statement. I dig my fingernails into my palms. The air between us sparks with electricity. I force
myself to hold my ground, to look directly at him and—
Admiration flashes in his eyes, like a silver comet streaking across the sky. His stern expression
doesn’t change, but that brief glimpse of warmth eases the tension knotting my shoulders.
“I’m not going to fire you.” His voice is measured and controlled. “But I will not have you seeing
King.”
“You don’t like him, so that means I have to stay away from him?” I ask. “Sorry, no. He’s one of
the few people in this town who has been nice to me, and I enjoyed our date. I refuse to discount the
possibility of Jeremy being my first real friend here.”
Flynn’s jaw clenches. “He wants to be more than your friend.”
“I know.” I put my hands on my hips and look him in the eye. “He even kissed me.”
Anger crashes over his features, and a vein throbs in his forehead. If I didn’t know better, I’d
think he was jealous.

But I do know better. He’s mad because I’m refusing to do something he wants me to do.
Despite, or maybe because of, his isolated lifestyle, Flynn is clearly a man accustomed to getting what he
wants.
“He kissed you.” The word grind out of his mouth like broken glass.
“Yes. And I kissed him back. Like our date, it was nice. Nice hasn’t been the norm in my life
lately.”
“I could kiss you,” Flynn retorts, his hands fisting. “But it wouldn’t nice.”
“Oh yeah?” My heart kicks into gear, blood rushing through my veins. “What would it be, then?”
He pulls in a breath, his gaze settling on my mouth. “Hot.”
“Prove it.” Borne of my endless nighttime fantasies, the dare flies out of me without thought of
the potential repercussions.
Before I can take another breath, he grabs my shoulders and pulls me against him. I freeze,
stunned by the reality of a moment I’d imagined more times than I can count—the sensation of his body
against mine. And God, he feels exactly the way I’d imagined, a solid wall of heat and muscle pulsing
with life. Rock-hard arms that could wrap around me so tightly nothing would get past them.
He stares down at me, his steel-like gaze sparking with intent like iron striking stone. I can’t
move, can’t breathe, can’t think.
Then his mouth crashes down on mine, an onslaught, a possession, a claiming. Hunger bursts
through me, a desire so sharp and intense it destroys all my defenses in one fell swoop. I moan,
everything inside me weakening and aching for more. He slides a hand to my lower back, fitting our
bodies together. I yield everywhere, my curves softening against him, any thought of resistance
dissolving in a haze of disbelief and craving.
I part my lips tentatively, let him inside. My head spins with the taste of him—something
decadent and forbidden. Our tongues touch, breath mingling. Arousal floods me, swift and hard, as if all
the fantasies in which I’ve indulged have primed me for this moment. I bring my hands up to his face, his
stubble coarse against my palms, slide them down to the sides of his neck where his pulse throbs
heavily. He’s like the sea—mysterious, unpredictable, powerful. I could get lost in him, drown, let him
sweep me away to a distant land where no one knows who I am and what I’ve done.

He lifts his head, breaking our kiss and stepping away from me at the same time. Heavy breaths
saw from his chest, and his eyes are darkened to black. I bring a shaking hand to my mouth, suddenly
unsure if the kiss just happened or if I’m like Alice in Wonderland, spinning downward, lost in my
intricate imagination.

#NewRelease Matters of the Hart (A Hart Series Standalone) by M.E. Carter @AuthorMECarter #5Stars #Standalone #MustRead

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Matters of the Hart
A Hart Series Standalone
Author: M.E. Carter
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: March 22, 2018

OUR REVIEW:

Matters of the Hart is the third book in the Hart series. Where in books 1 and 2 we read about Jason and Addison, this book gives us son Jaxon Hart’s story. This book can be read as a standalone, but the books are all so good and none should be missed!

“Gently, I talk to her again. “It’s okay. You’re safe now. I won’t let him hurt you anymore.”

Even though Jaxon is dealing with some baggage, he is protective, heroic, strong and just an amazing person. He meets Annika on the worst day of her life. Annika has so much that she she has to go through and works hard to be strong, but definitely needs someone to lean on.

“I realize my new reality is the two separate parts of my life…before last night and after last night. I’m only five minutes in, and the after is already proving to be harder than I expected.”

This story just pulled me in from the start. There are some extremely difficult to read parts, but all so worth it! Such a romantic, beautiful story and so emotional. I was definitely brought to tears, but the story is an uplifting Must Read!

BLURB

In an instant he became her hero. Then he became her lover and her friend.

My name is Jaxon Hart.

You watched me grow up. You watched me fight for my life. Now, I’m fighting for hers.

From the second I laid eyes on Annika Leander, I wanted to help her. Protect her. Vindicate her. But she’s got baggage to get through. Hell, we both do.

A funny thing happens, though, when you finally connect with someone in a different way than you ever have before. The baggage doesn’t seem so heavy.

I suppose that’s really the only thing that matters when the heart gets involved.

AUTHOR BIO

Mother, reader, storytellerME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.

#NewRelease Dating in the Dark by Alexandria Bishop @AllieEBishop @inkslingerpr #BuyNow #ContemporaryRomance

Title: DATING IN THE DARK (The Dating Trilogy #1)
Author: Alexandria Bishop
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release: March 19th

Our Review:

I really enjoyed this story. It had a fun and unique premise that involves “blind” speed-dating.

Tinley is hearing her biological clock ticking down as she approaches thirty. She has just about given up on finding a good and honest man. Her sister and her best friend rope her into attending a dating in the dark event that causes big shake-ups in her life.

“Are you trying to make me fall in love with you?”

“Is it working?”

“Possibly. The jury is still out on that one.”

He leans over and pulls her in for a kiss. She one hundred percent lied because she knows with all her heart she has already fallen head over heels in love with this man.”

I was pulled right into this cute story. I loved the characters and loved all the little hints of what is to come without giving too much away. The author drops teasers throughout the story like breadcrumbs that I couldn’t help but follow around and now I just can’t wait for more! Hurry up with book two PLEASE!!

-4 Stars-

DATING IN THE DARK Synopsis:
Speed dating. With a stranger. In the dark. As if dating isn’t hard enough already, why not add in a whole new challenge.

According to Tinley’s very pregnant sister, and best friend, binging on Netflix, wine, and cupcakes won’t lead to her happily ever after. What do they know?

Four courses. Four dates. Four very unwelcome, and unwanted courses. An appetizer, salad, dinner, and dessert. Every last one ends in disaster.

Except date number four. Dessert has always been Tinley’s favorite.

He’s a complete mystery, and she can’t seem to stop thinking about him. Whoever he is.

Falling in love wasn’t on her radar but that might be what’s happening between her and mystery date number four.

EXCERPT

Tinley’s ears perk up at the sound of his voice; it’s super low and incredibly sexy. She feels along the table for her glass of wine and takes a large gulp of liquid courage before responding. “That’s okay, I’ve always been a fan of rule-breakers. Some rules were just meant to be broken. For now, I’ll just call you Mystery Date Number Four.”

A husky chuckle floats across the table, and she can’t help but be instantly attracted. She can’t see his face, but with a voice like that, it doesn’t even matter what he looks like. “Is that because I’m your fourth date or are you ranking us? What’s my competition look like?”

All thoughts of being ladylike go out the window as Tinley lets out a full-blown belly laugh. If this guy only knew. “If by ranking, you mean which date was the worst, it’s hard to tell at this point.”

“Is that so? I had some pretty bad ones myself.”

She laughs internally at the disastrous dates she’s had so far. There’s no way he can compete. “I don’t know, my dates were pretty awful. I don’t think you can top them.”

“You want to bet?”

“Oh, we’re making bets now? I guess our relationship just cranked up a notch. Instead of it just being a blind date, we’re now at the blind acquaintance level.”

She’s not sure where this level of confidence came from, but she’s liking how easily the conversation is flowing with this guy. It’s completely effortless and she’s just comfortable. It’s never been this way with anyone before.

#NowAvailable Then There Was You by Claire Contreras @Claricon #NewRelease #Duet #OneClick

Then There Was You, an all-new second chance romance from New York Times bestselling author Claire Contreras is LIVE!

Love and the right timing were two things I didn’t believe in.

Love is about walking to the edge of the cliff and taking the leap together.
Timing was never on our side.
My first mistake was hooking up with my best friend.
My second came years later, when we met again, and I fell for her.
My third was letting her go, because I had to. Because a love like this wasn’t built to withstand the winds coming in our direction.

Love and timing.
I didn’t believe in either.

Then there was you . . .

Excerpt from Then There Was You:

“There’s no one at my parent’s house except for me.” He raised an eyebrow. “My brother is moving from his apartment to a bigger house, so he’s been going by there to pick up the last of his things, but that’s about it. I’ve barely seen him.”

I frowned. “So why are you staying there?” And where were his parents living? I didn’t want to ask this, of course, but I was dying to know.

“I’m waiting for construction on my apartment building to be complete. It should be move-in ready by October.”

“Hm.”

All sorts of questions popped into my head, but I pushed them aside. They’d go unasked because I didn’t want to answer any more of his. Thankfully, he clicked for the iron gates that guarded his house to open and drove in, not pushing for an answer. My eyes stayed glued on those gates as we drove past them. They were like something out of a Richie-Rich movie, those gates, black with a gold emblem in the center. I’d seen them countless times, pushed them open in the middle of the night more times than I could count. I tore my eyes away and looked up at the house. I hadn’t expected to feel such gripping emotion over a damn gate, but I guess some things never stop piercing your heart, no matter how much time passed.

“I’ll be right out.”

I nodded once and leaned against the seat before he jogged inside. I closed my eyes, trying to figure out how my trip had gone from closing a chapter in my life to being stuck in the middle of my epilogue. When Grandma Joan called me with a guilt trip, telling me to come spend a couple of weeks with her, I’d taken her up on the offer for two reasons: I was the only one left who hadn’t packed her room and taken the boxes to the storage unit, and I missed her and this place. I missed the days I used to come here and feel like I was home. I missed the slow pace that came with a life here in Ithaca, nestled inside the city, but surrounded by nature and the water.

Thinking about those days also brought memories of Rowan. Kissing Rowan, holding hands with him, laughing with him in our canoes, but with the positive came the negative. He and I were never meant to be more than friends, and even friends was questionable. Friends didn’t lie or omit important things. My eyes popped open when I heard the front door shut. I watched him take the steps two at a time and stride toward me.

He slid into the driver’s seat, dropped one of the two bottles of water he’d been carrying into my lap, and shot me a wink. I scowled, clutching the water and facing forward. Just because I’d taken him up on the ride didn’t mean we were suddenly going to be chums again. Far from it. I wouldn’t fall for those mischievous eyes. I wouldn’t fall for the panty-dropping grin either. I wouldn’t fall. Not again.

#NewRelease Come Again by Poppy Dunne @PoppyDWrites #RomCom #MustRead

Come Again by Poppy Dunne

Release Date: February 28th

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Designer: Shanoff Design

OUR REVIEW:

It is truth universally acknowledged, that I can’t get enough of Poppy Dunne’s RomComs! They keep me off balance with her unique humor.

Emma is a off-beat, funny and quirky heroine who’s thoughts constantly go off on hilarious tangents.

“It’s like I finally found the clumsy, studly, perfect man to dance the naked mambo with. And the naked mambo is my favorite dance.”…

“He doesn’t see me as just a funny, dorky, kind of ridiculous person.”

Fraser Drake is the friend of Emma’s brother Justin. He is a bit of a stiff and staid, proper British gentlemen, the complete opposite in personality to Emma.

“Oh hoooo,” I say, articulate as always. “Come again?” he asks. I’ll never tire of how sexy he looks when he’s utterly confused by me.”

I just loved every character in this story. They all had so much personality and came to life right off the page. And all the Pride and Prejudice parallels were like treasures to discover as I read along!

BLURB

It is truth universally acknowledged, that a single woman in possession of a dead-end job, shoebox studio apartment, and zany, intensely loyal friends, must be in want of a man.

But in my wildest dreams, I never expected that man to remember me selling overpriced KoolAid in my Rainbow Brite underpants when I was six years old. Life is unpredictable.

Fraser Drake was the least sexy boy when we were growing up: all elbows and knees and khaki pleats and debate club. But right now, in my mother’s kitchen, he’s never looked hotter, more irresistible. Granted, he’s looking down on me as I expertly dance the sock hop scene from Grease. But behind those layers of haughty indifference, I detect the hint of lust.

He is everything I never knew I wanted. Since I met him, my feet haven’t touched the ground and my smile hasn’t left my face. His laugh is like a well-aged scotch, and I have a feeling I could get drunk on it.

If a Pride and Prejudice/Bridget Jones’s Diary mash-up but with more sex, sexual tension, and sexy sex, sounds good to you, you’ve come to the right place.

EXCERPT

Fraser was looking like a granite block of control before; at my words, he’s still got that chiseled expression, but it’s wonderful to see the light come back into his eyes. The hot, sexy light smoldering in those (warm, brown) eyes that are set in that (handsome, sculpted, take-me-now) face is enough to melt any woman’s heart. And panties.

“Thank you.” He gathers me against him, and kisses me. The first brush of lips is a quick reassurance, almost sweet. Then, the second time, it becomes deeper and slower. The heat turns up as he gathers a fistful of my hair, pulling my head back. I gasp, grazing his lower lip with my teeth. His whole body vibrates with that. We kiss again, falling deeper and deeper into each other. I start pulling at his tie, and have it off in seconds. He slides out of his jacket, which falls to the floor. Don’t worry, all my sweatpants and discarded bras will keep it company.

I really should clean up more. But not right now. Right now, sex is all I can think about, and clothes just get in the way of sex. It’s math.

Fraser stills as I unbutton his shirt, giving myself a glimpse of that rock hard, sculpted physique that I find I happily can’t get enough of. I’m like Pavlov’s dog now: whenever someone takes a shirt off, I start drooling.

I had to try to curb that last time Fraser and I had sex. It almost got awkward.

With my help, Fraser strips off his dastardly shirt in a matter of seconds. I shiver as my fingers play up the contours of his abs, his chest. I trail my touch down the steel and silk muscles of his arms. Holy shit, this man must work out a ton.

And to that I say: huzzah.

“I’m feeling a bit more exposed than you,” Fraser whispers in my ear, kissing down my neck. In a flash, he helps pull my shirt over my head, and a second later, I slide out of my work skirt. Now in only bra and panties, I gasp as Fraser picks me up. My legs straddle his waist as he carries me to the bed, and lays me down…on top of more crinkling cellophane.

“How many Doritos do you consume in a week?” His eyes stay molten as he says it, the desire in his voice never losing its edge. Apparently snacking is the most erotic thing on the planet. Lucky, lucky me.

“Some of these are Fritos,” I whisper back.

#SurpriseRelease #Free Scenes From The Hallway by Penny Reid @ReidRomance #Novella #ValentinesDay

Scenes from the Hallway, an all new novella from USA Today bestselling author Penny Reid, is LIVE and as a special Valentine’s Day gift from Penny it’s FREE!

Synopsis

From the USA TODAY Bestselling romantic comedy series, ‘Scenes from the Hallway,’ Knitting in the City #6.5

You know who I am.

I swear too much, I crack too many jokes, and I got a thing for Kat Tanner; a messy thing, a distracting thing, a getting-in-the-way-of-everything thing; a thing that makes being in the same room with the woman torture. Sometimes it’s the good kind. Mostly, it’s not.

What you don’t know is how it all started. You don’t know how we met, you might not know what happened in Vegas (or the morning after), and you definitely don’t know what happened after that.

You want to know the story before the story? Well . . . here you go.

But be careful what you ask for. As I’ve discovered the hard way, you might not like it.

‘Scenes from the Hallway’ is a companion short prequel/short story (11k words) for the upcoming book, ‘Marriage of Inconvenience,’ and includes the first 3 chapters of the soon to be released novel! (‘Marriage of Inconvenience’ releases March 6, 2018.)

WARNING This short story contains a lot of cussing. Do not download or read if you dislike curse words in novels. WARNING

NewRelease Kneel (God of Rock #1) by Eden Butler @Eden_Butler is #Live #oneClick #RockStar #KindleUnlimited

Title: Kneel

Series: God of Rock #1

Author: Eden Butler

Genre: Erotic Rockstar Romance

Release: November 28, 2017

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/36246129-kneel

OUR REVIEW:

Surprises, angst, and HOT!

I went into Kneel blindly without reading the blurb or description and it took me on a wild ride, with surprises at all turns. It was one of those stories that kept me off balance. It started in the middle and as the story progressed gave me pieces of the past that fit like a puzzle and shaped the present.

“Everyone has a Know. It’s a fingerprint of the heart, something made for you alone. Something you search for without ever knowing why.”

In Kneel, there is a beautiful story of first love, all sweet and swoony and perfect. Iris and Jamie discover love and life and music together.

“They are the one; the person in all of space and time, the whole of every particle, that you simply cannot do without.”

But life is not all swoony and perfect. In the present, Iris is a tough journalist trying to get the story that will restore her name and further her career. And Jamie is no longer Jamie Vega. He is Dash Justice, a jaded rock idol, intent on leaving any memory of his past in the dust.

“he was remarkable, an astounding mix of poet and musician.”

Just a little warning…this book is super panty-melting hot, too! I absolutely loved Kneel and can’t wait to read more of Iris and Jamie’s story.

“It’s a risk…”

“Chica,” he said, grin sexy, tempting. “Life isn’t worth the ride if there aren’t risks.”

5STARS!!

-Diane-

Blurb:

Dash Justice wrote the songs everyone sings.

His face hangs on every girl’s wall. But Dash wasn’t always a rock God.

Once, he was just Jamie, the boy I loved.

But when my name, sung from his lips promises I was good for only one thing, all sweet thoughts of him die.

Now his excuses mean nothing. His promises are weak and I’m about to show the world that even rock Gods can be brought to their knees.

#NewRelease Clean Break (A Little Like Destiny #3) by Lisa Suzanne @LisaSuzanne24 #RockStar #VailTailFanGirl 


RELEASE BLITZ

Title: Clean Break

Series: A Little Like Destiny #3

Author: Lisa Suzanne

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: October 26, 2017

 

Our Review: 

Clean Break is Book #3 in the A Little Like Destiny series. It gives us a conclusion to this amazing, angsty story. I will admit that I wasn’t the biggest fan of Reese in book 1 but there was something about her that kept me rooting for her to find her way. Throughout this series she really had to grow and learn how to be strong. 

“This is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do,” he whispers. I look up at him through watery eyes. 

“Then why are you doing it?” I ask. I want to know why our love isn’t enough—why I’m not enough.”

This is a very emotional series with forbidden aspects, a bit of a twisted love triangle. It didn’t take long for me to become addicted to this story. Clean Break reveals secrets and gives us answers, but left me wanting so much more from this author and these characters!! 

“I didn’t know I’d spent my life broken until I met you. I didn’t know I needed fixing until I had to live without you.” 

This is not a standalone, so start from the beginning and get your angst fix with this series!

-Diane- 

5 Stars!!
