What Lovers Do Release Blitz & Review

What Lovers Do by Jewel E. Ann is now live!

From bestselling author, Jewel E. Ann, comes a hilarious secret lovers story that redefines the meaning of friendship. 

Shep’s found the female version of himself … and he thinks she’s perfect—perfectly unavailable.

Everyone loves Shep, the charismatic employee at Scottsdale’s newest pet store. He has shared custody of his two dogs with his annoying ex-wife and a smile that can disarm most women.

Except … Dr. Sophie Ryan. 

What starts out as a disastrous first meeting, involving a coffee catastrophe and mistaken flirting, turns into an unconventional friendship.

Fake phone sex. 

Dog park dates. 

And eighteen holes of golf. 

The problem? Sophie’s taken herself out of the dating pool for a mysterious reason, imprisoning Shep in the friend zone for eternity.

As their competitive personalities hit a boiling point, the gloves come off and so do their clothes. When Sophie’s “real” life threatens their relationship, can Shep let go of his past to chase the one that might get away?

My Review

What Lovers Do is an amazingly charming and hilariously adorable and sexy, friends to lovers romance between two individuals who are getting a second chance at love. So while it’s not their second chance with each other, it’s definitely a second chance for sure.

Jewel E. Ann is a one-click author for me and once again she proves why that is in this refreshingly unexpected and unforgettable story.

Sophie is such an amazing character. She’s unselfish and caring and when it comes to relationships maybe a bit gullible. She’s so in love with the thought of being in love it has gotten her into quite the pickle many times. It’s why she finds herself currently stuck in this horrible situation she’s in when she meets Shep at the pet store where he works. He’s gorgeous, charming and loves animals. She sure doesn’t need another complication but… he’s just so perfectly cute and the more time she spends with Shep the more she realizes just how much they have in common. How wonderful he is… for a friend that is, obviously. 🙄 

Shep is competitive, sexy, funny, loves animals and is super attracted to the adorable and quirky Sophie. He loves to go out, play golf and hang with friends. He really wants to explore this new found friendship with Sophie and spend as much time getting to know her as possible. But the more time he spends the more it seems like she’s hiding something.

This book will have you rolling in laughter. The banter can’t be beat. It will melt your heart as well as your kindle. The combination of all the emotions as well as the humor is a gift of which is so unique to a Jewel E. Ann book. She has worked so hard to finely tune her craft in these ways to capture every emotion under the sun and have us hanging on every word from start to finish. What Lovers Do is fun, flirty, engaging, sensual and swoony. It’s.Everything!! You DO NOT want to miss out. 🤩🥰🔥🥵🥰🤩

Say It’s Forever Excerpt Reveal

A Close Proximity, Single Parent Romance from A.L. Jackson

Coming March 28th

“You matter, Salem. You matter. Look at you, darlin’.”

There was the charm all mixed up with the disorder that was at the heart of this man. 

My chest squeezed and the blood thundered through my veins. 

“Beauty. The meaning of it.” The words fell on a harsh exhale from his lips, and the air that was barely skating up my throat died right there when he slowly toed off the dress shoes he wore. 

Obsidian eyes flashed like a rush of the darkest night, rough as they devoured me from across the space.

Without looking away, he leaned down and peeled the socks from his feet.

I gulped, then I was nearly passing out when he ticked through the buttons on his shirt and peeled that off, too. 

The man was nothing but wide, wide shoulders. Muscle everywhere, bulky on his arms and chest, his abdomen packed, tapering down and narrow at the waist. 

Most all of his skin was covered in ink that seemed to scream the same as the walls, though it remained indistinct in the minimal light cast down from the rafters. 

But I could make out enough to get the intonation.

The pure intimidation. 

Menace and peril and life. 

The mountain of a man stood there for a moment, then he took a step forward. 

Energy rushed across the floor.

He approached like a phantom. Like a painting that had come to life. 

It covered me whole and caressed me in shadows. 

I was right. This man was definitely, definitely dangerous.

There was no question about it then.

And still, I remained there, held in his gaze, feeling the safest I’d ever felt. 

I thought he was coming for me, only he slipped by on his bare feet. 

Desire rippled through on his wake. 

God, that was sexy, too. 

Jud Lawson was an anomaly.

Conflict and peace.

Harmony and dissention. 

A blinding light in the longest night. 

Stealer of heart and sanity and good sense.

Because remaining there on the ground like an offering? 

Posing for him? 

There was no question I’d lost my mind.

His aura rippled through the room as he moved over to the wall that I faced. He pulled an easel closer, and the canvas he set on it looked like it’d been painted over a thousand times. He knelt to open a few jars of paint. 

He picked up a brush and studied me.

I trembled beneath his watch.

“Beauty,” he rumbled. “Second I saw you out in the rain. Thought I had to be imagining things. Hallucinating.” 

“I was terrified,” I admitted, our voices dancing through the condensed air. 

Louder than they should be. 

The thrumming of our hearts was palpable.

Frantic beats that echoed against the other. 

A smirk ticked at the corner of his sexy mouth, then it slipped when he glanced at me then to the canvas. He began to paint. Quick, sweeping strokes, as if the images fell from him without thought. “I felt your fear, Salem. I felt your desperation. Wonder if I felt it then, that we were bound to be more than strangers. Wonder if I knew you were supposed to be on the back of my bike that night. Wonder if I knew you were going to become something that mattered in my life.”

A Million Kisses In Your Lifetime Release Blitz & Review

A Million Kisses in Your Lifetime by Monica Murphy is now live!

Wren Beaumont is many things.

Beautiful.
Smart.
Sweet.
Innocent.

At Lancaster Prep, the girls love her. They all want to be her friend. Only I see Wren for who she really is.

A repressed little virgin who keeps her feelings locked up so tight she’s probably close to bursting. She thinks she’s above us all.

Even me.

I shouldn’t be drawn to her. She’s not my type.

Until we’re forced to work together in class and realize we might have more things in common than we originally thought. Soon enough I find myself completely obsessed. I will do anything for this girl to make her fall in love with me.

Anything.

My Review

Monica Murphy perfectly captures everything and so much more that I love about the NA, the High School Seniors, Virgin Heroine, Enemies-to-lovers genre. The love story between Wren Beaumont and Crew Lancaster is the perfect blend of a little angst, a little bully, a lot unexpected. With plenty of sweet, swoony and sexy with a beautiful poignance and magical wonder.

Like that of first love and self discovery but also with a fun, flirty and almost dare I say…slightly fairytale-like (at times) feel to it because of the elite world our characters are brought up in and the surprisingly sweet and thoughtful ways in which we see our young Crew trying to romance Wren. It makes him seem older, yet still appearing the young and playful highschool senior he is. 

This is such a sweet love story and a great story of character growth. Wren has such a sense of self worth and high expectations for herself. I love that even when she grows closer to Crew he does not change those things about her but is a source of encouragement for her. While she feels the pressures from society, her family, from friends, she has a very strong sense of self awareness and will do what SHE feels is best for her in the end. 

With Crew we see her bring the more serious side out of this campus king, the playboy. When that happens he is truly dream  book boyfriend goals for sure. He was the perfect pairing for Wren as he brings out some sass and feistiness in her where she never used to have any bite and would just take everything others would say to her. I absolutely loved their banter back and forth. 

Crew at first comes across as arrogant and seems as though he can have anyone he wants and maybe Wren would be just a challenge for him but it is super clear from early on that it’s so much more for him. The little things he does for his “Birdy”, the ways he goes about getting to know her, and finding out what is important to her. It legit melted this gals heart. SWOON Y’all!! 🥰

So this might have been a relatively slow burn but it had some excellent dirty talkin’!!

Loved,Loved,and Devoured every second of this book from the start to the end. A Million Kisses In Your Lifetime is not to be missed. Would read this A Million Times in MY Lifetime!! I need A Million Stars!

The Temptation of Dirty Secrets Review

Captivating. Vulnerable. Agonizing. Seductive. Frankie Clermont was supposed to be like a sister to me for as long as I’d known her.

But no one knew the depths of our lies.

I had been in love with her before… before everything changed what we could be.

Undeniably connected and effortlessly infatuated, the two of us had remained each other’s weaknesses through everything.

I couldn’t afford to allow her to be my weakness anymore. I was in love with someone else. I was engaged.

But it didn’t matter how much time had passed, the moment I saw her again, I knew I would never escape her.

I never should have touched her again. Whispering her name in the dark was a mistake.

She was still everything I wanted and nothing I should have had.

We became a secret that neither of us could keep.
A devastating secret that would destroy everything.

Frustratingly Fantastic, Tantalizingly Torturous, and Heartbreaking as much as was heart-healing, this conclusion to Olly and Frankie’s story was unputdownable, and unforgettable. An unbelievable mix of angst and agony to my heart, but one that I would willingly subject myself to over and over again. The story that started unfolding by dropping little hints from the very beginning of The Boys of Clermont Bay series, showed us that something was always there between Olly and Frankie. Those little nuggets Holly Renee had been planting had me jonesing (and not always so patiently) for their time to tell their story and let me tell y’all. It.Was.So.Worth.The.Wait. 

I spent a big portion of this book torn between wanting to climb inside my kindle and smack Olly and Frankie upside the heads and knocking some sense into them-and then the other parts enabling every ounce of restraint I possessed to ensure I didn’t chuck my kindle at the wall out of frustration, because they spent so much time apart.Time that maybe they shouldn’t have had to. If only…

But truly in their times apart they both grew and learned things in their own way. They had different views on what they were and what they could become. They both grew and matured on their own, but in totally different ways. Frankie had realized what she truly deserves in her life and that was the only thing she was going to settle for going forward in her life. Olly finally realized what he needed to do to be the man Frankie deserves and prioritized his life accordingly.

While it was gut wrenching for these two characters as well as it was for me being so invested in their journey, I knew it was essential that they traveled those bumps and turns along the way to get to the place where they were truly meant to be. And that place was PERFECT!! 

I can’t say enough about not only this duet but this entire series. If you haven’t started it, there is no better day that TODAY!! If you have been following all along then grab this phenomenal conclusion that was years in the making. Pour you some wine, 🍷 grab a bar of dark chocolate, 🍫 and a box tissues and get ready for an emotionally beautiful read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Grudge, the highly anticipated conclusion to the Malice Mafia Trilogy is AVAILABLE NOW!!

About the book:

Malice was a broken man. A leader with a cracked crown.

Guilt was eroding his throne.

William was an opportunist. A man with a grudge.

Ambition dressed in an iron suit.

Anthony was a survivor. A lover with hope.

Healing wrapped in good intentions.

I’m a pawn, and it’s up to me to remind these men that they’re stronger together.

I just pray that this fight for power won’t tear us all apart

HOLY SWEET HELL!! 😱 Could this book be anymore perfect?! CoraLee has masterfully wrapped up the Malice Mafia trilogy in a way that will gut you, consume you, devastate you, frustrate you, but one hundred percent leave you feeling utterly fulfilled. This final installment will get you so far up in your feelings, y’all get ready. 😭🥺😭 The devastation this book delivers dang near killed me. Prepare yourself to see these characters undergo so much growth. We legit see completely different and better ( who would have thought they could get more awesome??) sides to them. Such darkness we saw from them in the past two books gives way to some light and softer sides we hadn’t seen from them before. 🥰

Nick “Malice” Civella is unexpectedly willing to give up everything for his Juliet. Pride and competitive drive to beat his big brother just might cost William everything, and Anthony the unpredictable psychopath who has completely stolen our hearts will be the glue that holds everyone together with his loyalty and comedic relief. But the biggest transformation is from Juliet. This gal will show you just how strong she truly is and will put those Civella boys in their place. 💪🏻They will learn to put up or shut up when she lays down what she will take and what she will not. I loved to see this side of her. She is most def the queen boss now. 👑

This entire book had me hooked. I was already addicted to the guys, Juliet and Grams before but now it’s on a whole other level. I laughed and I cried. I got angry at times and the angst about did me in. But this book hurt my heart as much as it healed it. I got the exact closure I needed. If I could have special ordered exactly what I wanted in the wrap up for this series it would be exactly what CoraLee delivered. Actually that’s not true. CoraLee gave me things I didn’t even know I needed and more. There was absolutely some super devastation in this story as well, but I’m not mad. I think for these characters to end up where they were destined to go we had to endure the heartbreaking parts of their journey too. 

Full of suspense, surprises, fighting and gore, sinful deliciousness, and unpredicted softer and sweeter moments out of our irredeemably redeemed Civella men. Grudge will close this series in the most extraordinary of ways. The engaging and phenomenally gifted writing by CoraLee June will keep you entranced from beginning to the very end, where you will sigh, cry and reluctantly let these characters go. Then you will be left feening for the next book by CoraLee, which can’t come soon enough for me.  All the stars in the galaxy for Grudge.  ⭐️✨💫⭐️✨💫⭐️✨💫⭐️✨💫⭐️✨💫⭐️✨💫

The Devil and The Deep Blue Sea Release Blitz & Review

 

You don’t really know a guy until you’ve vacationed with him…

When Drew Wilson’s ex-boyfriend Joel “Six” Bailey asks her to go on his family trip to Hawaii with him just as her life is falling apart, she decides it’s the perfect time to give him another chance.

The hitch? The Bailey family includes Six’s rude older brother, Joshua–a hot-nerd doctor who has hated Drew since the moment they met and once suggested she’d steal the family silver.

Drew is determined to win the Baileys over and give this thing with Six a fair shot…but Joshua is making that difficult. Not simply because he is in her way at every turn, but because–as one tropical adventure leads to the next–she’s beginning to wonder if obnoxious, odious Joshua might be the brother she actually belongs with.

My Review

I am obsessed with anything that Elizabeth O’Roark writes. Devil and the Deep Blue Sea was just what I needed in my life right now. It was the most delicious secret, forbidden, hooking up with your ex boyfriend’s brother while on vacation, romance. The journey to love between this gorgeous rockstar -who’s not got her stuff together and hot doctor,  who happens to be the perfect humanitarian and son, is an unforgettably exciting and engaging story. 

I loved the entire dynamic between Drew and Joshua and how they were stuck around each other on the trip. Them being forced to be around each other added many layers to the tension brewing between. It gave this gloriously fantastic tale the absolute best banter ever! These characters are so well written. They are beautifully complex and phenomenally intriguing. I love how they are able to balance each other. Drew is broken in so many ways and even though she couldn’t stand judgemental Dr. Joshua at first, it’s apparent that this man is the one who can fix her broken picked apart pieces and build her back up to everything she’s capable of being and more. Joshua is the most loving and caring son. He’s so annoyed by his brother and determined to be the opposite of his father. He doesn’t like what Drew and his brother stand for, although the more time he spends with her he realizes she’s nothing like he thought. 

I couldn’t get enough of their bickering and banter back and forth. It makes the story flow absolutely flawlessly. The characters are full of heart, depth and emotions. There is just enough humor, steam, banter, and frustration to keep you obsessed from the second you crack the book until the last word is read, and then I promise you still won’t want to let these characters go. I loved getting some more little nuggets of Tali and Hayes.🥰🥰  I’m totally devoted to any “Devil’s” of Elizabeth O’Roark’s. Five ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Flipping Fantastic Stars!!

My Review

Oh my goodness!! Talk about mafia magnificence. Alessandro and Serena’s story is like no other in the mafia romance genre. This story is heartbreaking but also healing to its core. This world in which Siobhan Davis has created is unforgettable, the stories unputdownable. 

Serena’s character is rebuilding a life for herself after years of abuse. Her journey is one of self discovery, healing, and so much strength. It’s about realizing your strength that lies within, while dealing with the struggles that go along with trauma. I loved her character and I wanted all that’s good in life to find her and her children. I wanted her to find a partner who would treat her like the treasure she is, and I think Alesso is most definitely the man for the job. 

Alesso was such a fantastic hero in this book. Total slow burn book boyfriend goals. He was so kind, loving and patient. He was a delicious alpha and protector. He was longing for everything only she could give him, and in return he wanted to be there for her and her adorable kids. He gladly fulfilled a missing chunk in their lives. 

Of course… Since this was a Siobhan Davis novel it was jam packed with heart dropping moments, moving fast paced ensuring you didn’t want to stop reading once you had started. I just loved this world and all the H & h’s. This is the perfect time to dive right into the Mazzone Mafia series. Each book focuses on a different couple and gives you a perfect HEA. 🥰

Excerpt

 

ALESSO

She slams to a halt, turning to face me. “I would never deliberately deceive you. That’s not who I am.” Fire underscores her tone, and I like hearing it. 

“I didn’t mean it that way. I know who you are.” 

The saddest expression washes over her features. “If that was true, you wouldn’t be standing here with me now. You wouldn’t be spending time with me each day. You would run a mile if you realized exactly who I am.” 

I risk stepping a little closer. “I have known you long enough to know the kind of woman you are, Serena. I’d like to think you’ve known me long enough to know you could tell me anything, and it wouldn’t scare me away.” Reaching out slowly, I take her gloved hands in my bare ones. “I spend time with you because I enjoy it. I want to get to know you better. I want to support you as you deal with the things you need to deal with.” 

“Why me? I’m too old. Too broken. I have kids. I come with so much baggage I’m completely weighted down with it. I—” 

I can’t listen to her beat herself up any longer, so I place two fingers over her mouth, quietly shushing her as I prepare to negate each of her concerns. “One. You’re not too old, and I’m not too young. Age is just a number, and I refuse to allow stupid societal norms to dictate who I spend my time with or categorize the nature of that relationship. Two. Broken is subjective, and we all have our broken parts, but guess what?” I move my fingers from her lips to her cheeks, silently rejoicing when she doesn’t flinch or shy away. “Broken parts can be glued back together. Three, I adore your kids, and they are the cherry on top. And four, every single person in the world has some kind of baggage. It’s called life.” 

Tears glisten in her eyes, spilling onto her cheeks. “You’re not real,” she whispers. “You can’t be.” 

My heart aches for her because I see the mistrust and disbelief in her eyes. “I’m real, Rena.” Taking her hand, I slip it under my coat and over my shirt-covered chest, where my heart is currently jumping cartwheels in honor of her presence. “I’m as real as it gets.”

BLURB:

Clark Griswold was onto something, at least with his annual holiday meltdown. And since the last three weeks of my life have been riddled with humbug—another breakup, a broken toe, an office promotion I deserved and didn’t get—I’m not at all in the mood to celebrate nor have the happ, happ, happiest Christmas EVER. 

When Mom insisted that we all gather at my Grandparent’s ancient cabin for an old school family Christmas, I fully intended to get into the holiday spirit with the help of the three wise men, Johnnie Walker, Jack Daniels, and Jim Beam. But those boys did absolutely nothing to offset the shock or temper the sting of seeing my EX on our doorstep the first day of our holiday soiree. 

Apparently, Santa missed the memo, and this elf is pissed.

Stuck for a week with the man who obliterated my heart nearly two decades ago, I did the only thing I could do and put on my game face, thankful for the home advantage.

I knew better than to drink that last cup of eggnog.

I knew better than to get tongue tangled beneath the mistletoe with the only man to ever break my heart.

I knew better than to sleep with Satan’s wingman on the eve of the Lord’s birthday.

I could blame the nog. I could blame the deceitful light blue eyes, thick, angelic hair, and panty evaporating smirk…but mostly, I blame Eli because he always knew exactly which of my buttons to push.

I foolishly thought a family Christmas filled with nostalgia was going to turn my inner Scrooge around, but this year’s festivities went up in flames. Leave it to the ghost of my Christmas past to be the one to light the match. 

Fa la la la la, la FML.

These Thorn Kisses Release Blitz & Review

 
 
 

Release Date: December 7


Eighteen-year-old, Bronwyn Littleton is in love with a stranger she met on a summer night a year ago.

A stranger who was tall and broad in a way that made her feel safe. He had dark blue eyes that she can’t stop drawing in her sketch book. And he had a deep, soothing voice that she can’t stop hearing in her dreams.

That’s all she knows about him though.

Until she runs into him again. At St. Mary’s School for Troubled Teenagers – an all girls reform school – where she’s trapped because of a little crime she committed in the name of her art.

Now she knows that her dream man has a name: Conrad Thorne.

She knows that his eyes are way bluer and way more beautiful than she thought. And that his face is an artist’s wonderland.

But she also knows that Conrad is her best friend’s older brother. Which means he’s completely off-limits. Not to mention, he’s the new soccer coach, which makes him off-limits times two.

What makes him off-limits times three however, and this whole scenario an epic tragedy, is that, Conrad, Wyn’s dream man, has a dream girl of his own.

And he’s as much in love with his dream girl as Wyn is in love with him…

NOTE: This is a STANDALONE set in the world of St. Mary’s.

My Review

MY FAVORITE St. Mary’s Rebels book so far! WYN and Conrad are legit EVERYTHING! Their story is forbidden, swoony, sexy, frustrating, and emotional. Both of these characters are complex and imperfectly perfect in their own ways. From their first meet cute to the complicated dynamics of their attraction eighteen months later they have a journey that is kismet and uniquely theirs.

I love how all encompassing this story is. From every character to every scene I was addicted to this angsty and unputdownable tale of forbidden love. This was forbidden gold, it had age-gap, best friend’s brother,  and also coach/student all combined to make the perfect smorgasbord of everything I love in the romance genre. Like a delicious blend of trope tea I couldn’t wait to drink down. It’s definitely a book I want to already go back and reread just to make sure I didn’t miss anything at all the first go. It’s a standalone and the third book in the St. Mary’s Rebels series but I would recommend reading the first two books as you meet these characters and they are big parts in the first two books. Plus they are just really fantastic. Grab this phenomenal book today!! Five forbidden first love stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My Review

This was the perfect conclusion to the duet! Like break me absolutely in half and put me back together again. Keeping me completely on edge the entire way through Calder and Sutton’s continuing storyline. Blood, sweat and tears were shed by all. This story, as gritty and devastating as it was gripping and perfect. Everything that happened, had to happen the way it did for it to go the way it did. Trilina artfully plotted and planned down to the finest of details. My senses were in overdrive. I felt like I was there. Felt the fear, heartbreak, love, loss, excitement, all alongside the characters. That’s the mark of a truly great book. You get so enraptured by the story you forget you are not actually in that moment. Guys I’m telling you. Grab this duet! It is magical. It is the kind of kismet love story you will never forget and never fully recover from. All the stars in the galaxy for Calder and Sutton! ⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨

Trilina is a former professional dancer (you may have even seen her on the MTV Music Awards) and a USA Today Bestselling author who loves cupcakes and bourbon.When she isn’t writing steamy love stories, she can be found devouring Netflix with her husband, Anthony, and their three kiddos. Pucci’s journey into writing started impulsively. She wanted to check off a box on her bucket list, but what began as wish-fulfillment has become incredibly fulfilling. Now she can’t see her life without her characters, her readers, and this community.She’s known for being a trope defier, writing outside of the box and creating fictional worlds her readers never want to leave.AUTHOR LINKSNewsletter | Website | Amazon Author | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Goodreads | BookBub | FB Readers Group | Pinterest | TikTok
