Release Blitz: Almost Perfect by Jessica Prince

Title: Almost Perfect
Series: The Locklaine Boys (Book 3)
Author: Jessica Prince
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy


He has a hero complex. She’s an independent woman.
When they come together, it’s going to be epic.


Devon McMillon wasn’t looking for a knight in shining armor. She didn’t need a man to rescue her or take care of her. She just wanted someone who would treat her as an equal and love her for who she was. Unfortunately, even in a city as big as Manhattan, finding a guy who wasn’t intimidated by a strong-minded, slightly outspoken woman was proving harder than expected.
Having fallen in love at the age of fifteen Collin Locklaine was convinced he’d already found the woman he was destined to spend the rest of his life with. That was, until she pulled the rug out from under him and ended their relationship. He’d taken care of her, been her protector. And now he was forced to start over again.
A man with a hero complex and a woman with a fierce independent streak should never work. However, fate has other ideas. Besides, sex that good can’t be a fluke, right? With an attraction like theirs, Devon and Collin have no other choice but to dive in and see where it leads them. Only one thing is certain. When they finally come together, it’s going to be epic.
***This is Book 3 in the Locklaine Boys series, a spin-off of Love Hate relationship. They are interconnected standalones.***

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.

HIT THE SPOT

Publisher: Forever
Trade Paperback: $14.99 USD
eBook: $3.99 USD

Blurb:
Is this love or just a game?

Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and worst of all . . . the sexiest man she's ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he's around, she's determined not to be another meaningless hookup.

Jamie McCade always gets what he wants. The sickest wave. The hottest women. And Tori, with her long legs and smart mouth, is definitely the hottest one. He knows Tori wants him—hell, most women do—but she won't admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it's time for Jamie to raise the stakes.

Jamie promises that soon Tori won't just want him in her bed, she'll be begging for it-and he might be right. Somehow he's found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before. But with all she knows about his past, can she really trust what's happening between them? Is Jamie playing for keeps or just playing to win?

My review: 5 Stars!
I *never* highlight on my kindle, but I posted on Instagram the other day that Jamie McCade changed that. SO MANY HIGHLIGHTS! A favorite: 

"He tasted like watermelon gum and regretful decisions. And I loved it." 


Jamie McCade is a stubborn rascal with a filthy mouth, and he's pretty much amazing. And Tori's having the WORST time convincing herself she's not into him. I loved their back and forth argue-flirting, and enjoyed that fact that he was so into her that he waited so long for her to realized it too. Enemies-to-lovers is such a fun trope! Wild and Trouble from Four Letter Word were featured quite a bit in Hit the Spot, and I enjoyed getting to keep with them. I tore through this one night and stayed up way too late to be productive the next day, so I gave it another slower read this week and savored it a bit more. J. Daniels is a pro at fun, sexy reads and Hit the Spot did not disappoint.

New Release Review: On the Line by Victoria Denault

Hometown Players Series
by Victoria Denault

He had total control of his game--until she changed all the rules . . .
As one of the best players in the NHL and the "golden boy" of the league, Avery Westwood knows he has to keep his cool--on and off the ice. His whole life is a carefully constructed image of perfection for the media and his brand sponsors. Of course, that means he can never let his true feelings show. But when it comes to the sexy sister of his former teammate, Avery might be willing to make an exception . . . even if it means breaking all his own rules.

As far as Stephanie Deveau is concerned, having a thing for Avery is the equivalent of psychological napalm. Très bad idea. Then he moves in next door, all sexy smiles and a deliciously hot body that she can't resist. Something's happening between them--it's intense, a little (a lot) out of control, and real. Only Avery doesn't know everything about Stephanie's past. And the one exception to his rule might just be the one girl who could destroy his career.


MORE IN THE HOMETOWN PLAYERS SERIES:
One More Shot
Making a Play
The Final Move
Winning It All

My review: 5 Stars!
We met Avery in the prior book in this series, Winning It All, and I did not think very highly of him- he only thought of himself and his career and didn't seem like a guy who could love anyone as much as he loved himself. We also met Stephanie, since she was the main character's sister in that book. I loved how spunky she was and was excited to read her story and see if Avery could redeem himself.

And he totally did! Turns out, he is amazingly sweet and devoted and ready to settle down in a relationship with the right girl. I enjoyed reading from both Stephanie and Avery's perspectives, and watching them cultivate a friendship that grew into something more. Hockey romances have become some of my favorites, and now that I have read two books in the series, I know I must go back and read the first three. I adore Denault's writing style!

Teaser: Dear Life by Meghan Quinn

Check out the first teaser for DEAR LIFE by Meghan Quinn! I can't wait for this release!


DEAR LIFE
NA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 5th
Goodreads



Four lives. Four stories. Four sets of letters. Four brave souls in need of guidance while facing life's greatest challenges.

The anonymously published Dear Life program is designed to help them step outside of their comfort zones, face their obstacles, and relinquish their demons...and prove their existence.

With their lives teetering between wanting more and losing it all, all four souls dive into the program as a New Year’s resolution, sending them on a crazy, life-altering journey. 

Dear Life, 

Please be kind. 

Yours truly, Hollyn, Jace, Daisy, and Carter. 


About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if "It's Raining Men" starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing... enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Review: Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan

Miracle on 5th Avenue

3rd book in the From Manhattan With Love Series

It will take a Christmas miracle for two very different souls to find each other in this perfectly festive fairy tale of New York! 
Hopeless romantic Eva Jordan loves everything about Christmas. She might be spending the holidays alone this year, but when she's given an opportunity to house-sit a spectacular penthouse on Fifth Avenue, she leaps at the chance. What better place to celebrate than in snow-kissed Manhattan? What she didn't expect was to find the penthouse still occupied by its gorgeous—and mysterious—owner. 
Bestselling crime writer Lucas Blade is having the nightmare before Christmas. With a deadline and the anniversary of his wife's death looming, he's isolated himself in his penthouse with only his grief for company. He wants no interruptions, no decorations and he certainly doesn't appreciate being distracted by his beautiful, bubbly new housekeeper. But when the blizzard of the century leaves Eva snowbound in his apartment, Lucas starts to open up to the magic she brings…This Christmas, is Lucas finally ready to trust that happily-ever-afters do exist?

My review: 4 Holiday Stars
I think the quote on the book cover is perfect- "A little sweet and a lot sexy." I do adore a slow burn, enemies to lovers story, so this fit the bill nicely. Eva was at times a bit too perfect for me- she's honesty SO perfect! Her only flaw seems to be she speaks before she thinks. I always enjoy a grumpy hero, and Lucas was that word personified. I enjoyed their witty banter immensely. Although this reads as a standalone, I found at times that I wished I knew more about the secondary characters that I knew were featured in the first two books in the series. I also felt that the ending wrapped up a bit too quickly, but was happy with the result.

Lucas Taggart is the best con man in the business, so to speak.

A former-geek-turned-hottie, Luke is now an image consultant and life coach to the rich and privileged in New York City. His eight-week program is designed to transform ugly ducklings into swans by instilling some much-needed confidence, and hey, a makeover never hurts.
But when Ainsley Carrington signs up as a client, Luke's world is thrown into a tailspin. Ainsley doesn't need an image consultant; her image is already perfect just the way it is. Luke immediately finds himself grappling with his attraction to the introverted beauty as all his old insecurities come bubbling back to the surface.

The thing is, Luke doesn't date his clients. Ever. But fighting his desire for Ainsley is proving more difficult than he ever imagined. Especially since the cocky and arrogant "confidence man" has just completely lost his cool.

***CON MAN is a romantic comedy novel intended for ages 18+ due to some offensive language and graphic sex/sexual situations.***

EXCERPT
“You must be the famous Libitz,” he’d opened, taking his assigned seat beside her, and flashing his sexiest grin. 

After all, if she was his chosen conquest for the weekend, there was no time like the present to work his wiles. Wearing a simple black sheath dress with aqua circles, 70s-style mod make-up and oversized silver and crystal chandelier earrings that almost brushed her thin shoulders, she’d turned to him and blinked those wide, all-seeing eyes. 

“And you…must be kidding.” 

Taken aback, he’d stared at her for a second before chuckling. “Wha—I mean, how’s that?” 

“Let’s start over,” she said, cocking her head to the side. “Here’s your line, Romeo: “Hi, I’m Étienne’s brother, Jean-Christian. It’s nice to meet you.” Want to give it a try?” 

He cleared his throat, his smile fading. “Hi, I’m Étienne’s brother, Jean-Christian. It’s nice to meet you.” 

She locked eyes with his, her lips neutral, neither tilted up nor down. “Hi. I’m Libitz Feingold, Kate’s best friend…and it’s not cold enough.” 

“What?” asked J.C., feeling completely turned around. 

"It’s not cold enough in hell for me to fall for someone like you,” she said, then shifted back around to talk to the person on her other side. 

Well, f*** me, thought J.C., taking another gulp of beer as he tried to figure out if he was insulted or impressed. After a moment, he nudged her in the side with his elbow and she looked at him over her shoulder, her expression annoyed. 

“Yes?” 

“I hear the temperature’s dropping there,” he said casually, then added, “because they’re expecting a visit from you.” 

"Ha!” she chortled, a genuine grin brightening her eyes for a moment before she quickly reigned it back in to practiced ennui. “Is that right?” 

He shrugged, tipping his bottle of beer back as he held her eyes, challenging her to come back at him with something clever. “So I heard.” 

“From all the friends you’ve got there?” 

He almost spit his beer out. Damn, but she was quick. 

"Truce?’ he asked, placing his beer on the table and holding out his hand. 

She stared at his hand for a moment, then looked away, leaning forward to pick up her champagne glass and bringing it slowly to her lips. “No, thanks. Mama didn’t raise no fool.” 

“You’re unreal.” She shook her head, that bored look still in place. 

"Nope. I’m real. I’m just not a good target for charming scamps looking for trouble.” 

"A target? Shit. Who got to you?” he asked, feeling a little abused by her insta-judgement of him without actually getting a chance to know him in person. Not that she was wrong exactly. But getting into trouble with the right person could be a hell of a lot of fun. 

“The list is long and distinguished,” she shot back. 

His eyes widened and his lips wobbled. 

“Oh, God,” she said, shaking her head as her cheeks bloomed an appealing pink under her make-up. “I walked right into that one didn’t I?” 

“Yes, you did,” said J.C. with what he hoped was a disarming grin. “All together, now…” 

“So’s my Johnson,” they said at the same time, quoting the rebuttal line from Top Gun. 

“Hey, look at that,” he said, still smiling at her. “You do know how to have fun. I was beginning to worry.” 

Her smile instantly faded. “You’re not as cute as you think you are.” 


"Yeah,” he said, nodding as he finished the last of his beer. “I am.”

When fitness empire CEO David Strong agrees to help teach a yoga class for couples based on poses in The Kama Sutra, he’s put in one compromising position after another. Especially since the instructor is his best friend’s little sister-in-law, doesn’t have a lot of experience with men, and is totally off-limits. She’s everything David’s never wanted. So he can’t understand why he suddenly needs her so much.
Sophie DelFino has fantasized about David for over a decade, but he has a type, and she’s far from it. He’s also got all sorts of rules and reasons why they shouldn’t be together. Good thing Sophie is all about bending the rules.

My review: 4 Stars!
This was my first book by Bayley-Burke, and I enjoyed this full-length, easy read. Sophie is a feisty, strong-willed heroine, and David is a charming, but somewhat damaged hero, and together, set against the backdrop of a very sexy yoga class, opposites definitely attract. I enjoyed their witty banter so much! These two were great together!

My review: 5 Out of the Park Stars!
I loved the first book in the series, Anything but Minor, and I was so excited to read the second book. And guys, I LOVED IT EVEN MORE! I don't know how that is possible, but April and Andy's story is magical and such an enjoyable read! These two are so great together and Stewart's writing is hilarious. I even learned a new meaning for SWAG! Both characters are so well developed and their backstories are an important part of the story.

Both April and Andy were hesitant to jump into a serious relationship after their pasts, but it was hard to deny the chemistry between them. I enjoyed the somewhat slow burn into a night of passion, and the subsequent time they spent figuring things out. Stewart wrote a more emotional book here, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, and didn't mind the tears I found myself shedding. Love love love this book! It can be read as a standalone, but is also a great partner to book 1.
