Risking Everything Release & Walk the Line Review

BLURB


 
Discover ten spicy stories about brave first responder men and women from some of your favorite romance authors. All proceeds go to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
 
Romance on the Rig by Kara Liane: Finding love on and off the ambulance proves difficult for Air Force veteran Murf—until he meets Lana, a game-changer. Murf may be an EMT hero, but he’s only human. Mistakes happen in love, and a misunderstanding keeps them apart. It’s time to make things right and answer the call from the heart.
 
Reconstructed Heart by K.L. Montgomery: Trey Prince never expected to make a gruesome discovery at an accident scene only a few months into his new job with the Collision Reconstruction Unit, and he never expected Trooper Jenna Labato to be the one who helped him pick up the pieces. No matter how badly Jenna wants to help him heal, Trey isn’t sure his heart or faith can ever be restored—not without something close to a miracle.
 
Walk the Line by Harlow Layne: Gage Walker never thought a call to a scene would change his life forever until he met Claire Blake. Sparks fly, but when his fellow Brothers in Blue’s girlfriends are targeted, Gage wants nothing more than to protect her—even if that means he has to give her up.
 
Always Kind of Love by Amanda Siegrist: The last thing Ethan McCord wants to deal with is his old high school flame, even though his desire for her hasn’t diminished. Battling the burning blazes and an arsonist bent on destruction is nothing compared to fighting the temptation to rekindle the love he always wanted.
 
Beautiful Persuasion by A.K. MacBride: Raelyn wasn’t supposed to fall for the rebound guy, but the moment Griffin opened his mouth, he drew her in with his sexy Irish accent and dark gaze. As one night of sizzling passion develops into something more, she’s forced to choose between the man who sets her heart ablaze and the only family she has left.
 
Going Down by Jody Kaye: Devastated by her parents’ divorce, Kat’s looking to regain the stability she took for granted. Dash Newhouse is a drifter, paying his bills by skiing at a new mountain each season. Paired together on ski patrol, Dash reminds Kat that she can’t live life to the fullest while playing it safe. But when the snow melts, will he ride off with her heart?
 
Rescuing Ryan by Syd Ryan: Ryan is out of the frying pan and into the fire, working the oldest profession of all time to finish her last year of nursing school. On the first day, she meets Chris, the sexy firefighter, as he is licking his wounds of rejection. For Chris, rescuing Ryan will be the hardest rescue of his life.
 
Perfect For Me by Alyne Hart: Firefighter Luke O’Conner and ex-model Grace Adams shared all their firsts in a tiny cabin just outside Sugar Creek. Nine years later, Grace is back in town, and they find themselves waiting out a storm in that very same cabin. Fire burns between them as neither seems able to keep their lips or their hands to themselves.
 
Call of Fate by Kelsey Cheyenne: After surviving a school shooting, Aubrey Winters became a dispatcher, dedicating her life to helping people. One fateful call and a meet-cute at a coffee shop leads Aubrey into the arms of English teacher Noah Burgess. Can their trauma be overcome when true love calls?
 
Loving Lindsey by Larissa Gail: Firefighter Gavin Thomas has no desire to settle down anytime soon. He’s having too much fun playing the field. That is until he meets Officer Lindsey Allen, who’s moved to Oaktown to start over after a devastating loss. Can the blue-eyed beauty convince him to change his ways?

My Review

WALK THE LINE By Harlow Layne

Oh my goodness,Y’ALL! I’m DONE!! Like put a fork in me. Done! Harlow never fails to deliver these perfectly delicious heroes and sassy yet sweet heroines. Every.Single.Time. 

I’m talking, they capture my heart if not on the first page, within the first few. This time was no different. Gage Walker and Claire Blake took hold of me page one and didn’t let go. 

Hot Cop, Gage Walker can arrest me any day of the week and twice on Sunday. I will resist, but only to make it more fun and so he feels he needs to use force. Lol 

Seriously though, he’s awesome. From the moment he met Claire our red headed bombshell damsel in distress, he was hooked. He was drawn to this woman in ways he had never been before and he had no clue why.

There were things going on in his town of Oasis and he felt they threatened her safety, so he would do WHATEVER it took to keep her safe. Will Gage throw away the best thing to ever happen to him if he feels it’s in her best interest? Will Claire forgive him when she finds out what he’s been hiding from her? 

Claire Blake first meets her angel in blue when he arrives at the scene of her horrible traffic accident. While she is waiting for crews to get her out of her car he’s on “panic duty” and in charge of keeping her talking, alert and calm. She instantly notices how gorgeous this cop is and doesn’t want him to leave her side. Even for a moment. He promises he won’t.

When she gets out of the hospital two days later and he gives her a ride home, he notices two things right off the bat. Her place is a dangerous crap hole, and it’s going to be too hard for her at this point to go home alone, so he offers up his place. There is super intense Insta-lust/ attraction between Gage and Claire. Being a cop he probably knows some firefighters and that’s good because they are hot enough to ignite any surface that they touch together. Yup, they are that. Freakin.Hot!!  

I really love the mystery/suspense/crime storyline Harlow has going on in here and I love even more that it’s going to carry over into Tate’s book. This storyline of Gage and Claire by itself was really good but the mystery/suspense addition made this even better. This was a short book and a quick read, but had plenty of goodness packed in it. The timeline of the when and why’s of how everything went down was perfection!  

I can’t wait for Tate’s book and the continuation of Gage and Claire. I can already tell Tate’s character will be so different from his brother and I need more Claire!!

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐️-GAGE+CLAIRE=PERFECTION!!This book is just everything I love about Insta-lust/love  amazingness. Plus add in hot cops and a heroine that’s a bit sassy and a bombshell redhead! Yes please! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- They can’t even be around each other without practically combusting. Totally smokin’ hot. GAH! Holy Hot Hades! Fire Extinguisher needed! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No Cliffy per se. You get a HFN ending. No glimpses into the future or anything, but promises of much more of them in Tate’s book which is fine by me. I was happy with the way it ended, but hope for full HEA at the end of Tate’s book!

My Review

Holy Hot Muffins straight out the oven! So… not gonna lie, so many times during this book while totally lol’ing,  I was also hearing Carrie Underwood in the background of my head singing the chorus to “Before He Cheats.” Tempest Cassidy is my spirit animal, Y’all!! She hand delivers revenge on a platter, while the rest of us ladies in the world sit back and cheer HELLS YASSS! There are consequences for her actions and she owns that shit!  And sweet baby Desus in a manger, then she manages to become BFF’s/workout buddies/friends to lovers with Cage “The Fighting Viking” Erickson. LUCKY! I’ve never rooted and carried on so for a book chick so hard in my life. 

Tempest and Cage’s story is like nothing I’ve read before combining all the hilariously lol moments you could ever want plus just the right amount of devastatingly gut-wrenching moments to pack perfectly timed punches. You’re left knowing you’ve been served an emotional beat-down delivered by none other than the amazing Jiffy Kate duo going all out in this Five Star TKO! 

In this story, told in dual POV (which I adore) we read about Tempest “Em” Cassidy, err formerly Williams  and the hell and chaos she encounters after eight years of marriage, a heartbreaking event and then the pinnacle when she walks in on her husband after the unthinkable. But not only does she walk in on him after the unthinkable, but is literally with her arch nemesis, Mindy Mitchell. I mean couldn’t get any worse than that l. Am I right? Tempest immediately finds herself victim/ powerless to the curse of the “ fiery red hair haired temper” and loses her shit, which in turn leads her to finding herself in the slammer. MORE THAN ONCE! 

Next thing you know it’s a feisty free for all. One anger “episode” after another. I’m talking hilariously unique kinds of a misadventures/quests for revenge for Tempest against her ex-husband Asher and his mistress, Mindy. Tempest is dealing with a lot and her life is definitely not where she thought it would be at all and it’s beyond a lot to take in. Lord knows she didn’t handle it well and living in a small town, everywhere she turns they’re in her freaking face or the entire debacle is being thrown in her face. My heart broke so many times throughout this book for Tempest. 

Enter Cage Erickson “ The Fighting Viking”. He’s beyond hot, he’s huge and just enough of a mystery, if being from out of town wasn’t enough, throw in working for his old Harvard buddy Hank at the Pink Pony (yes, it’s a booty club lol) immediately Cage and Tempest form a friendship. There definitely some Insta-lust on both parties ends. She’s attracted to him but also knows it’s way too soon for any kind of relationship so friendship it is. He agrees to help her channel her anger better by working out with her and teaching her some UFC tricks, while hiding his growing more than friendship feelings for her.

As their friendship grows closer she finds herself having feelings she never expected. But with friends and family offering up unsolicited advice about the gorgeous blonde hair blue-eyed out of towner will she put a stop to something good before it ever really gets started?

And what will happen when she finally gets her anger under control and discovers the deception went much further than she could have ever anticipated, will Cage be able to pull this pint sized punch packin’ pixie back out of her angry tirades and help her come up with better ways to sweat out that anger? Will he be stuck having to admire her from a far while she stays in the clink or can he finally help her get it together so he can just hangout with her and enjoy her goodies? 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐- OBSESSION!! This book y’all. Holy shit on a stick it’s freakin everything! I’m so in love with the characters in this story. This is unique, hilarious, a tearjerker and gives you ooey gooey feels by the end! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Not gonna Lie, I would gladly go rounds with Cage. Rounds in the bedroom, the shower, the ring, the gym… you get me?!?  Yup that how freakin hot this book is. Now it’s slow burn, but it packs suck a punch when it gets there you are a-okay with the build up! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- NO CLIFFY!! #YOUGETHAPPYENDING

Serenading Heartbreak Cover Reveal

   

SERENADING HEARTBREAK by Ella Fields Release Date: September 27th

   

Add to Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/43019444-serenading-heartbreak

         

     

Blurb:

My first love was my brother’s best friend.

A lead singer in their band.

A picture of rugged perfection.

And a drunk soul mate who couldn’t commit.

My second love was an arrogant baseball player.

A player in every sense of the word.

A smooth-talking, reliable best friend.

And a chance at something beautiful and true.

The problem with having a first and second love?

That would be loving them at the same time.

My story isn’t some sexy triangle.

It’s exquisite agony.

Fate gave me two men to love,

but none of us knew which one I could keep.
