New Release Review: Long Live the Beautiful Hearts by Emma Scott


Beautiful Hearts Duet Book 2
By Emma Scott


Never again would I allow my heart to become the plaything of someone else.
Never again would I let a man (or men) come between me and my goals.
Never again would I love without feeling the fullness of that love in return.
Not until I knew it was real. And if that took me a lifetime to find, so be it.


Those were my vows, and after all that had happened with Connor and Weston, I was determined to keep them. To protect my heart.
And then he came home, and my vows became his promises.

He held my heart in his hands with reverence and care.
He helped me find my soul’s greatest purpose in life.
He loved me with a love so pure and vibrant, I knew I’d never feel anything like it in a hundred lifetimes.
It was real.

Until it wasn’t.
Until it all came crashing down when I discovered the deep love I thought I’d found was nestled in a web of lies—so soft and silken I hadn’t noticed it was there.
Until it was too late.

**********
Long Live the Beautiful Hearts is the emotional, heart-wrenching conclusion to the Beautiful Hearts Duet by bestselling author, Emma Scott, and is inspired by the classic tale, Cyrano de Bergerac. (Roxanne) THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL LOVE TRIANGLE #confusedhearts #notamenage THIS BOOK IS NOT A STANDALONE. It should not be read without first reading Bring Down the Stars.
 

My review: 5+ Poetic Stars
What a gift we have been given with this book! You do need to know that it *must* be read after Bring Down the Stars, and is what I believe to be the perfect conclusion to The Beautiful Hearts Duet. It took me less than 24 hours to absolutely devour Long Live the Beautiful Hearts, and it was all I hoped it would be- as always, Emma Scott's books are in a class of their own for me. Yes, she's on my one-click list, but her stories surpass most everything else I read. Back in elementary school, we had DEAR time (Drop Everything and Read) and that's precisely what I do when Emma has a new book out. I'm off for a second read, because I'm sure that in my haste to finish the journey she took the characters on, I'm sure I missed some details that are worth spending more time on. I know this review is deliberately vague, but it's important that the story is read without spoilers- it makes it what it was meant to be. A must read!

  
Emma Scott is a bestselling author of emotional, character-driven romances in which art and love intertwine to heal, and in which love always wins. If you enjoy thoughtful, realistic stories with diverse characters and kind-hearted heroes, you will enjoy my novels.

In Her Space
by Amie Knight
Release Date: November 15th

I was reunited with Livingston Montgomery in the broad sunshine of a Carolina morning, right where she belonged, in the light.
It’s been too long since I’d seen her face.
She had changed, but so had I.
I was Adam Nova, reformed bad boy.
Now, successful businessman.
I had it all, except for the one person I’d always wanted,
and now I was back to claim her.
She was living in the shadows,
just a shell of the former girl I knew.
But it didn’t matter that she tried to hide from me in the dark.
I’d follow her into the deepest depths of hell.
I just wanted to be IN HER SPACE.

New Release Review: Love Sincerely Yours by Sara Ney and Meghan Quinn

 
Love Sincerely Yours
By Sara Ney & Meghan Quinn

Release Day Oct 9th

Dear Mister...**strike out** no, too formal.

Hey there sweet cheeks *strike out* no, too forward.

To whom it may concern,

Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.

I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?

So here I am, being honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.

I like you so much it’s clouding my judgment and making me do things I never would sober. Like write this letter.

I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. Your bark is worse then your bite, and you don’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.

For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.

And as long as we're being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you who’s boss.

Love,
Sincerely,
Yours.

My review: 4 stars
This was so fun but took a little bit to get in to. I wasn't sold on Rome until the second half of the book. Once I was as into him as Peyton was, I really liked him. I love how Peyton was sassy and determined and independent. I knew the dialog would be good from these two authors- they are two of my favorites!

New Release Review: Crave (Gibson Boys #3) by Adriana Locke



Title: Crave
Series: The Gibson Boys #3
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Contemporary Romance

BLURB

Hadley Jacobs is over Machlan Gibson.

Sure, she’ll always be a little weak to the dimple in his right cheek and the way his five o’clock shadow makes him ruggedly handsome. But that’s not enough to cover every other thing about him because they all drive her nuts. Like how he’s won’t admit he’s wrong even when he knows it and how he drives his stupid car a million miles an hour on wet asphalt. As she rolls back into town and takes a seat at Crave, she won’t take the bait. She’s over him. Mostly.

Machlan isn’t over her.

It’s not because he hasn’t tried. He reminds himself over and over that she’s not the girl for him. After all, she drives him insane with her sassy attitude and the way she calls him out on everything. She beats him at poker, even though she doesn’t know the difference between a straight and a flush, and when she looks at him with her bright, blue eyes, it’s unnerving. When she climbs onto that bar stool and orders a drink, he puts it in front of her and ignores the sparkle in her eyes.  He’s not over her, but she won’t know that.

But she does know that. And he knows she’s not as over him as she’s pretending to be. When life forces their hand this time, there’s more on the line than a pile of poker chips. It’s their forever.

Crave is a standalone romance in a new small town, blue-collar series from USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke. Join readers everywhere as they fall in love with the delicious Gibson Boys.

My review: 5 stars!

Oh those Gibson boys! Second chance love stories are my jam, and Crave is just that, filled with Locke's trademark humor and angst. Although it's part of a fabulous series, and would read just find as a standalone, I do think you'll rush to read the others after meeting the family. Fan favorites Nana and cousin Peck are of course there, the former holding the family together with weekly dinners and fried chicken, and the latter for comic relief (and oh is there comedy!). I was blown away by Machlan and Hadley's story- when a certain event from their past was revealed, I gasped because I absolutely didn't see it coming. Both a sweet and a heart-wrenching story, Crave is a must-read! And it gets us one step closer to Peck's book!

New Release Review: Southern Charmer by Jessica Peterson




Title: Southern Charmer
Series: Charleston Heat #1
Author: Jessica Peterson
Genre: Friends-to-Lovers Romance
Release Date: October 4, 2018

Blurb

He’s sexy. He’s southern. And he’s a superstar chef. Meet Elijah Jackson, my hot new neighbor...

From the outside looking in? I’ve got it all. Prestigious job. Pretty house. And a perfect boyfriend who proposed with the perfect ring.

But as beautiful as my life looks on the outside, I feel like something’s missing. So I hop in my car and head south. I’m hoping the thousand mile distance will clear my mind--and give me time to work on the romance novel I secretly want to write.

Charleston, South Carolina: home to stunning architecture, sultry accents, and--oh yeah--my new neighbor, Elijah Jackson. A chef at one of the city’s most renowned restaurants, he’s simultaneously intimidating and inviting. Especially when he shows up at my door, shirtless, offering me homemade biscuits.

As if his abs for days and inked up deliciousness aren’t enticing enough, he also encourages me to chase down my dreams, one chapter at a time. And the chemistry between us? Hotter than the kitchen at Eli’s restaurant.

But I still have a life a thousand miles away. One I’ve worked really hard to build. And I don’t know if I can just leave it all behind.

Romance novels always end in happily ever after. But is one possible for a southern charmer and this yankee girl?

SOUTHERN CHARMER is a slow burn, standalone romance. It’s the first book in the CHARLESTON HEAT series, set in Charleston, South Carolina.

My review: 5+ stars!
Southern Charmer was absolute perfection and had the BEST characters- a swoony romance-reading chef hero, and a strong smart female professor/writer needing to escape her life for a bit. I just can't gush enough about the dialog and chemistry between Eli and Olivia- I always enjoy a slow burn, and this one certainly paid off. One of my favorite parts of the book (it was so meta!) was seeing the journey Olivia took as she wrote her first romance novel, My Enemy the Earl. Historical romance is not my usual genre- but I would love to read Olivia's book about Gunnar and Cate! Southern Charmer was a fabulous start to the Charleston Heat series and I am looking forward to reading Luke's story!

New Release Review: If the Shoe Fits by Rachel Lacey

Almost Royal #1
by Rachel Lacey
Release Date: October 2, 2018

NOT ALL FAIRYTALES END AT MIDNIGHT

Elle Davenport is no princess—she just dresses up as one for her job at a local theme park. But when she gets the call that she’s won a contest to live and work at a real-life castle in Virginia, she finally feels like she’s found her calling. If she’s successful, her venture could become permanent, and that sounds like Elle’s idea of the perfect modern-day fairytale. There’s only one problem: the castle’s grumpy—and sexy—new owner wants her gone as soon as possible.

Theo Langdon never imagined he’d inherit the title of Earl of Highcastle so young. With his grandfather’s recent death, he needs to sell Rosemont Castle so he can return to London. If only he wasn’t butting heads with the vivacious new property manager at every corner. Although he’s got a life waiting for him in London, Rosemont Castle suddenly feels a lot like home, thanks to Elle. As the clock winds down on her time at the castle, he’ll have to reconcile his obligations in London with the American woman who’s stolen his heart.


My review: 4.5 stars!
I discovered Rachel Lacey last year and loved her Risking It All series, so I absolutely looked forward to the first book in her new Almost Royal series, If the Shoe Fits. Take a royal romance, add in animal rescue and a spin on the Cinderella story, and I was hooked. Theo and Elle had fantastic chemistry and fun banter. Elle's friends were great characters too and I am looking forward to their stories. Fun fun fun!

New Release: Not Until You by Corinne Michaels

NUY-SBPRBanner-RB.jpg
Not Until You by Corinne Michaels 
Publication Date: October 1st, 2018 
Genre: Contemporary Romance

NotUntilYou_FrontCover

I have two rules in life:
1. No relationships, falling in love or attachments.
2. No sleeping with clients of my interior design firm.

Since the last guy turned out to be married, they’ve been easy to follow.

Until him.

Callum Huxley is a ridiculously sexy Brit, and the connection we have the moment our eyes lock scares the ever-loving hell out of me. Thank God I came to my senses before going back to his hotel where I would’ve ended up naked, panting, and unable to forget him.

Thinking I walked away from that night unscathed was stupid. Sure enough, at the biggest meeting of my career waits the CEO of Dovetail Enterprises—him. It might be the most embarrassing moment of my professional life. And breaking my no-client rule might just be the hottest moment of my personal life.

Learning to trust has never felt so good, but falling has never hurt so bad.

New Release Review: Lies by T.M. Logan

by T.M. Logan
Release Date: September 11, 2018

“Assured, compelling, and hypnotically readable—with a twist at the end I guarantee you won’t see coming” (New York Times bestselling author Lee Child), T. M. Logan’s debut psychological thriller dissects a troubled marriage straight to the marrow as one man separates the truth from the Lies
Six days ago, Joe Lynch was a happily married man, a devoted father, and a respected teacher living in a well-to-do London suburb. But that was before he spotted his wife’s car entering a hotel parking garage. Before he saw her in a heated argument with her best friend’s husband. Before Joe confronted the other man in an altercation where he left him for dead, bleeding and unconscious.
Now, Joe’s life is unraveling. His wife has lied to him. Her deception has put their entire family in jeopardy. The man she met at the hotel has vanished. And as the police investigate his disappearance, suspicion falls on Joe.
Unable to trust the woman he loves, Joe finds himself at the mercy of her revelations and deceits, unsure of who or what to believe. All he knows is that her actions have brought someone dangerous into their lives—someone obsessed with her and determined to tear Joe’s world apart.
What if your whole life was based on LIES?

My review: 4 stars
Full of twists and turns, and an extremely likable main character. Poor Joe! Things started to unravel so fast- and the lies he starts to uncover just keep coming. Every time I though it couldn't get worse- it absolutely did. I will say I did NOT see the ending coming. I really enjoyed it and look forward to more from T.M. Logan.
