New Release Review: Someone Else's Ocean by Kate Stewart



Someone Else's Ocean
by Kate Stewart
Contemporary Romance
Stand Alone
July 31, 2018
Cover Designed by: Amy Queau- Q Design Cover and Premades
Blurb:
The first time I met Ian Kemp in the sparkling blue waters of St. Thomas, I was six years old and we shared a summer beneath the stars.

The second time I met Ian Kemp, he was a shell of the boy I once knew. Turbulent and infuriating, he refused my friendship at every turn. Like me, he was a casualty of life’s cruelty, but we were planets apart. 

We’d both sought refuge on the island, hoping to find our anchor. Instead, we found each other and managed to reclaim our stars...until we both got swept away.


My review 5 stars!
Epic- this story is absolutely an epic tale- full of romance, angst, complication, and beauty. I loved Koti from the start- I related to her anxiety- in fact, I found it hit very close to home at times. Although Ian is dealing with a life-changing event when we meet him and he's reluctant to rekindle his friendship with Koti, I patiently waited for it to happen, and was so pleased with the reward. I adored the humorous banter between the two, and enjoyed seeing cautious friendship turn into more. 
Koti's friendship with Jasmine was fun and refreshing, and fans of Kate Stewart will be gifted with a fun Easter egg in the form of some island guests. Someone Else's Ocean is a must read!
"The point is-- I don't believe in miracles, but I'm falling for mine."

Blurb

To dominate one’s heart is to truly be free.

The anticipated conclusion to The Final Harris Brother Duet.

After the harrowing attack against Gareth and Sloan, there are more than just physical wounds that must be healed.

Recovering and moving on from their dark pasts is the only way they can truly find their bright futures.

Who will surrender? And who will dominate?


ADD TO GOODREADS

My review: 5+ stars!
Wow! What an ending to such a fantastic series. It was everything I hoped it would be. Thank goodness the cliffhanger from Surrender was resolved at the beginning of Dominate. I could finally breathe! This book was all about family, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I couldn't think of a better ending and the epilogue was just a cherry on top- my heart got all warm and squishy from all the happiness! Gareth's duet is a must read, and both Surrender and Dominate have earned a place on my Best of 2018 list!

I LOVED Book 1 of the duet- Surrender! Here's my 5 star review!
Amy Daws is a one-click author for me- I have loved her Harris Brothers series and have been looking forward to reading Gareth's story- which is so important and big that it took 2 books (a duet) to tell the story! I knew that Gareth was quite a serious guy, and assumed his story would be serious and deep as well, but I was unprepared for the journey that Daws took me on. What an emotional roller coaster! Gareth made me swoon, Sloan's story made me ache, and they were so good together! Absolutely just what each other needed. Be warned that this book, book 1 of the duet, ends on a major cliff hanger, but I think in the end it will all be worth the angst and waiting. Cannot wait to read Dominate!

Cover Reveal: Love Online by Penelope Ward

fullsizeoutput_68

A Standalone Contemporary Romance Novel

By NY Times, USA To-day, and #1 Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author Penelope Ward

RELEASE DATE: Monday, August 27, 2018

Love Online Ebook

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.

Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary.

Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.

From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.

She was an addiction.

At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.

Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman.

But I couldn’t really have her.
I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.

So I took a chance.


And that was when our love story really began.

Excerpt 
Thwack.
Thwack.
Thwack.


“Fack!” It was another one of the hundreds of curses that erupted from the Kemp kitchen.

With wide eyes, I watched the wood fly across the porch and onto the sand and heard another loud crash as I stalked the house next door with my phone pressed to my ear.

“So how is my son?” His mother asked as I saw more of Rowan Kemp’s kitchen fly over the railing, off the porch, and into the sand. “Is he adjusting well?”

“Damnit! Oh, fack your motha,” Ian’s voice rang out in frustration. Giggling, I covered the mouthpiece of the phone as another cabinet door hit the sand. He’d been at it for a few hours. It started with an explosive phone call that I managed to avoid mostly due to my taking cover in the shower and ended with a bang.

“He... is. It looks like he’s remodeling the kitchen.”

In a flash, Ian stood on the porch only in shorts, his chest heaving, a bottle of the red in his hand. He studied the wood in the sand before he glanced at my house. I ducked out of his line of sight and answered her before more banging started. “He’s fine.”

“Oh, that’s wonderful news. Maybe you could put him on the phone?”

More growling ensued and then a clear, “Damn you! EISH!”

“Well, at the moment, I think it would be impossible, he’s in the midst of demolition.”

I cringed at the ripping sound and poked my head out of my screen door just as he hurled more wood over the railing.

“You know he’s always been so good at things like that. He built his father a beautiful bookshelf for his study.”

“That’s wonderful,” I said, as Ian unloaded an entire can of lighter fluid on the discarded wood. I raced around the bottom floor of my house and collected every fire extinguisher I had before I sat them next to my front door. Seconds later I heard the whoosh of the wood go up in flames. The rising inferno seemed to fuel him as he added more of his mother’s kitchen to it piece by piece.

Rowan went on, speaking of her pride and joy. “From boy scouts all the way through college, my boy excelled at everything he did. Honor student, swimming, tennis. I had to beat the women away with a stick.”

Ian chose that moment to snap another cabinet door in half over his knee and used his empty wine bottle to bat it into the burning pile.

“You don’t say.”

“Oh, yes, he was such a ladies’ man before he met Tara, his ex-wife.”

Only mildly prepared, I walked out onto my porch at the same time Ian returned to it. He had several photo books in his hand. Rowan whispered in my ear as if he could hear her. “I was never really that fond of her, she seemed a little cold compared to his warmth.”

Ian pulled pictures from the books and began to burn them one by one. Something in my chest split as he walked around Rowan Kemp’s burning kitchen cabinets, tossing away what I was sure were irreplaceable pictures.

He had lost his shit. It was, without a doubt, Ian’s doomsday.

“Don’t!” I screamed from where I stood.

Ian ignored me as he tossed an entire book into the fire before shaking another so that the pictures fed the flames.

“Koti? What is it?” Rowan said anxiously on the phone.

“Oh nothing, I was just...”

“Is everything okay?”

“Oh, fine,” I said, as I paced the porch watching her son destroy his mother’s memories. He must have found the pictures in the linen closet. The Kemps had very few of their own things in the house.

“Rowan, I’m going to ask him if he needs any help.”

“Okay,” she said hesitantly. “But please ask him to ring me.”

“Will do.” I was already running toward the small bonfire just as Ian tossed another picture into it.

“What are you doing!?”

“Privacy,” he said through thick lips. “That’s all I asked for.”

“Kind of hard to ignore you, Ian. Since you’ve gone all Tom Hanks Castaway—me man, me make fire!” I reached for the picture in his hand as he tossed it in. I watched it burn. It was a shot of a woman in her wedding dress who I assumed was Tara. She looked beautiful as she smiled at her groom. I was only able to admire Ian in a well-fitted tux for seconds before the fire engulfed the photo.

Jesus, what could have happened?

“Ian, if you want to talk about it…”

He picked up another book and took a few pictures out shoving them into his pocket before he tossed it into the pile.

“Leave.”

“Please stop. You don’t understand what you’re doing.”

Blazing eyes scoured me before he looked back at the fire. “I know exactly what the fuck I’m doing.”

Sweat pooled on his forehead. He was covered in splintered wood. Ian Kemp had cracked, and he wasn’t coming back until he was ready.

Way too far into his headspace, he ignored me standing next to him.

I walked back to my house and watched him dismantle years of memories as he stared at the fire until it went out.

And then the house next to mine went completely quiet.

New Release: The Naked Truth by Vi Keeland

TNT_Title_Black
The Naked Truth
A Standalone Second Chance Romance Novel
By #1 NY Times Best Selling Author Vi Keeland

TNT_FrontCover with black edge
RELEASE DATE: Monday, July 23, 2018

It was just a typical Monday.

Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client.

After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed.

Or so I thought…

Until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch.

My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance.

And that was the good part of my day.

Because the gorgeous man crouched down and looking at me like he wanted to eat me alive, was none other than my ex, Gray Westbrook,

A man who I’d only just begun to move on from.

A man who my heart despised—yet my body obviously still had other ideas about.

A man who was as charismatic and confident as he was sexy.

Somehow, I managed to make it through my presentation ignoring his intense stare.

Although it was impossible to ignore all the dirty things he whispered into my ear right after I was done.

But there was no way I was giving him another chance, especially now that he was a client…was there?

New Release Review: I Fall Apart by Kenzie Hart

by Kenzie Hart
Release Date: July 17, 2018

“It was just a kiss.” 
That’s what my friends told me. 
But they couldn’t really understand. 
It was a kiss. 
A kiss that made me feel like I could fly and crash all at once.
A kiss that set my body aflame. 
A kiss that eventually tore me apart. 
A kiss that wrecked my whole world. 
It was a kiss alright. 
One that changed everything


My review 4.5 stars!
I  have to admit I'm not a big poetry reader, so I was a bit worried that a book written in verse style wouldn't be my cup of tea. I am happy to report that I loved it! Once I got into the flow and into the rhythm, it was such an enjoyable read. It was romantic, passionate, and so emotional. I read it during a very busy few days, and one thing I really liked was that it was easy to pick up and put down as I found myself with pockets of time. I'm excited to see what Kenzie Hart has planned for her next book.

New Release Review: Surrender by Amy Daws



Title: Surrender
The Final Harris Brother Duet #1
Series: The Harris Brothers #4
Author: Amy Daws
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: July 19, 2018

Blurb

One night of complete surrender is all it takes.

Gareth Harris is Manchester United’s reclusive star defender. He has control over all aspects of his life. But a lifetime of supporting his siblings and filling in for an emotionally absent father has taken its toll.

Sloan Montgomery is a clothing stylist whose world was turned upside down when she found herself pregnant and moving to Manchester with a man who was never supposed to be her forever. Now recently divorced and struggling with shared custody of her daughter, control is a fleeting concept for this American living in England.

Both Gareth and Sloan are in need of a release.

A moment in time where they can forget about their pasts and family pressures...and just...

…surrender.

No one could predict what happens when both of their defences are down.

Surrender is part one of The Final Harris Brother Duet and concludes with Dominate. The Final Harris Brother Duet reads great as a duo, but to maximize enjoyment, check out the first three brothers’ books in Challenge, Endurance, and Keeper.
