New Release Review: Bad For You by J. Daniels

          

 
A Dirty Deeds Novel
BY J.Daniels
Release Day: January 23, 2018

"If you're a fan of Kristen Ashley, then you will love this book." -Aestas Book Blog on Four Letter Word

He didn't want to be bad. He just didn't have a choice...
Shayla Perkins isn't the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean "Stitch" Molina. So when he gives her the world's biggest rejection, that's it--she's done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn't mean he's interested in her. Or does it?

Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he's paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected--especially from a man like Sean. He's tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.

Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give each other what they want most...is to let each other go?

"The perfect mix of funny, hot and heartwarming. I enjoyed it immensely!" --Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author, on Four Letter Word

My review: 5 stars!
This one grabbed me and I could not put it down! Sean "Stitch" Molina was such a mystery when I read the first two Dirty Deeds novels, I didn't dream his story would affect me so much, but it absolutely did. He was so damaged, but yet still such an amazing man, and it was absolutely heartbreaking to get to know him and what he'd been through. Shayla was such a bright light- just an amazing girl with an big heart and just what he didn't realize he needed in his life. I so enjoyed seeing their friendship develop and turn into more. Although it would certainly read fine as a standalone, the supporting characters from the first two books are definitely worth your time as well.

Cover Reveal: In Harmony by Emma Scott


In Harmony by Emma Scott

Release Date: Tuesday, February 13, 2018
Preorder Links
Amazon Universal: myBook.to/InHarmony

Blurb: 

The root of all madness is an unbearable truth…

At seventeen, Willow Holloway’s life was torn apart. The happy, driven girl is gone, and she is left wracked by post-traumatic stress her body remembers even if she does not. When her father suddenly uproots the family from their posh penthouse in New York City to the tiny town of Harmony, Indiana, Willow becomes more untethered and lost under the weight of her secret. On a whim, she auditions for a part in the community theater’s production of Hamlet and unexpectedly wins the role of Ophelia—the girl who is undone by madness, and her love of Hamlet… 

Isaac Pierce is from the ‘wrong side of the tracks.’ The town bad boy. Girls pine for his attention and guys are in awe of him. That he’s an acting prodigy only adds to his charisma. Isaac utterly disappears into his characters; the stage is the only place he feels safe from his own traumatic home life. He wants nothing more than to escape to Broadway or Hollywood, and leave Harmony behind for good. 

No one can play Hamlet but Isaac, and when the director pairs him with Willow in acting class, they clash again and again—neither willing to open their hearts to anyone. But clashing leads to breaking, breaking leads to the spilling of terrible secrets, and soon Isaac and Willow find Shakespeare’s words mirroring their lives. When they are cruelly torn apart, neither know how this play will end—with madness and heartache? Or healing, love, and the discovery of who they are truly meant to be. 

In Harmony is a standalone NEW ADULT love story, and is intended for readers 18 and up. PLEASE NOTE, this book contains sensitive material such as physical abuse, and the aftermath of sexual assault (off the page). Reader discretion is advised.

Movie Review: Forever My Girl



I was lucky enough to receive an advance screening ticket from Gofobo to see Forever My Girl last night and it was so good! I do have to say- Abby Ryder Fortson absolutely stole the show as the little girl- she was precious and such a great actress. I also really enjoyed the country music and swooned so hard at the song sung by Liam and Billy!

I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after. 

I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I’ve poured my soul into my music, but I’ve never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile. 

And now I’m going back. After ten years. I hope I can explain that after all this time. I still want her to be my forever girl.

Cover Reveal: Gentlemen Nine by Penelope Ward


     
Gentlemen Nine
by Penelope Ward
Release Date: February 19, 2018

Cover designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA designs
Cover Model: Lucas Garcez
Cover Photography: Sven Jacobsen
       From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

Growing up, the three of us were friends.
He was the nerd.
I was the playboy.
She was the beauty.

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.
He lied.

I went off to college, and he got the girl.
Amber never knew how I felt.
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.
When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.
One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.
Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.
Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.
She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel. 
When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

A billion-dollar fashion empire, and it’s about to be mine…

Release Day Review: Royal Ruin by Jessica Prince


Book #1 of the Flings With Kings Series
Royal. Ridiculously hot. Totally off limits.
By Jessica Peterson
Release Date: January 18, 2018

I loved Royal Ruin by Jessica Peterson, one of my favorite authors. It's the first in a three book series and I can't wait to read the next one!


Blurb


To: Emily@EPDesigns.com
From: HRHKit@PrimrosePalace.org.uk
SUBJECT: ENGAGEMENT CONTRACT (Marked Confidential)
FROM THE DESK OF HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS PRINCE CHRISTOPHER
Emily—Thank you for joining me for dinner tonight. And for agreeing to my proposal, as ludicrous as it is. Desperate times call for fake engagements. At least in my family.
I am attaching the contract we discussed. Our lawyers asked that I highlight the following clauses:
·      The engagement shall last ninety days
·      Both parties are to appear genuinely in love at all royal appearances
·      Beyond required public displays of affection, there shall be no contact of any kind between the parties
The first half of your payment will be deposited into your account upon the signing of this contract. Be sure to note your ring size. We would like to make prompt delivery of the family emerald. The Queen and I thank you in advance for your discretion.
Cheers,
Kit
P.S.—Sorry to hear about your divorce. Your ex sounds like a proper knob head.
P.P.S—You looked stunning tonight.

My review: 4.5 stars!
This book has it all- a fake relationship and engagement, second chance, royals, and fun side characters- the brothers are a hoot. Kit was dreamy (that cover!) and so swoony- such a great lead. I loved that Emily was quite the spitfire and didn't let Kit's status affect her behavior around him- she was herself with him and he loved that. They had amazing chemistry (fans self!). I'm so excited about this series and can't wait to read the next book.

Blog Tour: Enticing Daphne by Jessica Prince

Title: Enticing Daphne
Author: Jessica Prince
Genre: Sassy Romantic Comedy



It’s easy to stop believing in happily ever afters when the man you thought you’d spend the rest of your life with abandons you right before your wedding day. After that disastrous event I decided that commitment was for suckers. I was young, successful, and in the prime of my life.
I didn’t need a man to make me happy.
Then an unexpected blast from the past came waltzing into my studio and decided I was a challenge he was more than willing to accept. The only problem is that he doesn’t remember he’s met me before.
He’s the ultimate playboy, determined to stop at nothing until he entices the hell out of me. But if Caleb McMannus thinks he can lure me in with his sinful looks and silver tongue, then he’s…probably right.

My review: 5 stars!
You know I have recently realized is my favorite genre? SASSY ROMANTIC COMEDY! I love it! Enticing Daphne was absolute perfection- filled with humor, chemistry, and friendship, with some family drama angst thrown in for good measure. Although it absolutely can read as a standalone, the story runs concurrently with Seducing Lola and Tempting Sophia and it was so fun to fill in the blanks on some of the events in this series. I think that Caleb and Daphne are my favorites of the group, but I really do love the whole gang. Love love love!

Google was quickly becoming the bane of my existence.
What had started as curiosity about Caleb McMannus had blossomed into a full-blown obsession. Once you Googled, there was no going back. I was disgusted with myself.
Each gossip column of his sexcapades, each picture of him in a compromising position—and there were many, all of them with a different woman—was cringe-worthy. But I couldn’t stop myself from searching them out.
What was worse, I couldn’t stop thinking about our night together. It had been the most intense, toe-curling experience of my life. And even though I pretty much hated him for forgetting about me, I wanted it again.
Damn my needy, traitorous vagina!



Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.
Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.
In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.
Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

New Release Review: The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

 
by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
Release Date: January 9, 2018

When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife.
You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement – a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love.
You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle.
Assume nothing.
Twisted and deliciously chilling, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen's The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage - and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.
Read between the lies.
My review: 5 stars!
Wow! So many twists and turns! It was so cleverly done, it brought me back to the "What??" feeling I had when I first read Gone Girl. I found it spellbinding and so addictive- I absolutely did not want to put it down. A must read if you enjoy psychological thrillers.

New Release Review: Man Card by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby

by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby
Genre: Rom/Com
Release Day: January 15, 2018



A sexy new stand-alone comedy.

Ash:
I still don't know how it happened. One minute I was arguing with my arrogant competitor--our usual trash-talk over who deserves the larger commission. But somehow I went from throwing down to kneeling down...
It can never happen again. I don't even like Braht. He's too slick. He's a manipulating mansplaining party boy in preppy clothes.
So why can't I get him out of my head?

Braht:
There are two things I know without question. One: Ash and I are destined for each other. Two: never trust a man with a unibrow.
Ash is my missing my piece. She's the sweet cream to my gourmet espresso. And nothing gets me going faster than her contempt for me. They don't call her the Ashkicker for nothing.
Eventually I'll win her over...if my past doesn't ruin everything first.

My review: 5 Stars!
After reading the first book in this series, Man Hands, I wasn't sure how Bowen and Eby could possibly add Braht to my list of favorite book boyfriends. I'm not typically into men that spend more time pampering themselves than I do- but somehow the authors made Braht a metrosexual I could totally get on board with. Such a surprise! The juxtaposition of his grooming habits and his alpha take-charge tendencies was such a great mix. Ash was his perfect match and the only woman with a sassy enough personality to challenge him and entice him all at once. Man Card is exactly what I love in my romantic comedy- witty dialog, chemistry, heat and humor. Man Card can totally standalone, but is best read after Man Hands. It's an absolute delight.
