The Love of My Next Life Release Blast & Review

 Release Date: September 8

I calmed his demons.
 

He created mine.


Macon Davis.

My best friend’s brother.


My tormentor.

My least favorite person.

Pothead. Delinquent.

A careless, directionless loser.


That’s what I used to believe,

but I didn’t really know him.

And when I finally saw him,

it was the best and worst thing to ever happen to me.


We burned hot and fast.

Passion. Anger. Love. Pain.

We were reckless. Naive.

We were doomed from the start.


When I finally saw Macon Davis for who he was,

We both went down in the flames.


***



The Love of My Next Life is part one of a duet.

It is just as much a love story as it is a tale of ruin.

While the duet will end with an HEA, book one does not.

Book two is set to release in October 2022.

I am absolutely destroyed at the moment. This book gutted me. I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to get when I started. As this is A- my first read by this author so I’m unfamiliar with her style, which I am discovering is a tragedy in itself because OMG where has Author Brit Benson been in my life the last few years?! And B- because other than the blurb that TBH I read a while back when I signed up to read this, I went in blind not really knowing too much of what to expect. Which turned out to be the way to go anyway.

Blind is best y’all. My recommended way to go, always. Now, I had my assumptions based upon said blurb, but… You know what they say about assumptions and all!  Blurb had me thinking “ okay, this is going to be the whole “good girl falls for an anti-hero that’s going to grow on us.” and I can totally get on board with a good ‘ol enemies to lovers any day of the week and twice on Sunday’s. I mean it was an enemies to lovers, and this book does take place in high school, but these were anything but your typical high school sweethearts. This book was unlike ANYTHING I have ever read. Original storyline with phenomenally written, flawed characters gave us an engaging and gripping story. A  gritty and realness that is sure to leave you emotionally raw long after the cliffy at the end leaves you breathless. I know it did me. 

From the very beginning I fell for Macon hook, line, and sinker. He’s so tantalizingly toxic, and I should be ashamed that I’m so twisted because I die harder for the toxic ones. But I’m not even a little ashamed.  Yes, he was definitely cruel at times, he was messed up, he was for sure trouble with a capital T. But he was also misunderstood, he was damaged, he was broken, self destructive,  hurt, and he was so much more than what people saw him for. It wasn’t just the way people saw him, it was the way he saw himself.

He just made me feel everything. I wanted to simultaneously hit him upside his head to knock some sense into him and pull him to me and just hug him and heal all his hurts. He broke my heart, he melted my heart, he made me hot. Holy Hot Hell 🔥🌶🔥🌶 did he ever make me hot. The ones with  the bad egg rep y’all, I’m telling you. They just do it for me. What is wrong with me? In real life my hubby is as straight-laced as they come.  Lol That’s probably why I like my fictional fellas fully fubar’d! (Not completely. I do want him redeemable)  

Lennon is amazing. She’s got a heart of gold, she is who she is and she’s comfortable with herself. She is creative, a rule follower, and selfless friend. Honestly she gets the short end of the stick sometimes because with most of the people in her life she doesn’t stand up for herself…except with Macon. He seems to be the person in the world who can get her the most fired up. The way they verbally spar. He brings out this lively feisty spirited side to her that no one else sees. I can feel  how she finds herself struggling with her feelings for him, it practically jumps off the pages. She is at war with everything. The things he does, the way he treats her, the things others have to say about the kind of person he is. It all weighs heavily on her mind.

But things start to happen and she finds herself around him more and more and she sees glimpses that there is so much more to him. All of these discoveries are breaking down her walls. However the more walls they tear down, the more life seems to throw back up in their way. I just connected with her character so deeply. The writer did such an amazing job I was so invested and emotional I had to take moments and remind myself that I wasn’t actually there. I didn’t need to throw down with anyone in real life to stand up for some injustice that was being done to my girl. I mean I could chuck my kindle, and almost did several times. I could cry, which I absolutely did. A lot. I could cuss, did that as well. But at the end of that chapter I pressed on. Until press on I could no more…and now we wait.  

My angsty frustration level is at an all time high. The tension between them is palpable.  I live for the kind of rush this book was giving me. This book is a catastrophic collision of every emotion under the sun. Past trauma, damaged hearts, addiction, forbidden love, secrets, mistakes, lies and betrayal rips through their lives. Told in dual alternating POV, book one in the Next Live Duet will leave you grasping the edge of your seat, tears in your eyes, wanting to IM the author immediately to demand book two, before I die of impatience. Can one actually die of impatience? I feel like I just might. But in all actuality this book is fantastic. While it is full of sensitive content. It is beautifully written, the parallels to real life make it tragically devastating especially given where it has left us at this point. I am also filled with a smidge of hope. Deep in my core I believe in true love and I believe these two are inevitable soul mates. But I think they ( and us readers) will be put through a gut-wrenching journey, the likes of one which we won’t recover from immediately( because these characters have already captured our hearts.)   

My Cr8zysockbookblock Wrap Up

⭐️Star Rating~⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨~Six, I will probably never emotionally recover from this duet if book one is anything to go by, STARS!!

💭Overall Thoughts~ I am so happy I took a chance on this book and this new to me author as it will most definitely go down as one of my TOP READS of 2022! My only regret is that I am just now discovering this author’s work. I plan to quickly devour as much of her back list ASAP. I will be counting down the days until book two. I’m probably not ready for what Ms. Benson is going to do to my poor heart. But I can’t survive without knowing where we are going from here. I highly recommend EVERYONE take a chance on this author and The Love Of My Next Life. As for me… I will never be the same. 

⚠️TRIGGERS~This book has some content that could be disturbing to some readers. Elements of child abuse, unaliving oneself, Death, addiction, mental illness. If you would like more specific information feel free to PM me for more specific details.    

🌶 HEAT~ 🌶🌶🌶 Definitely Hot. Had tension and lots of great “Banter O’Hate.” The buildup was worth the wait. I can’t wait to see the spice level in book 2 since I imagine the them to be older in that book.  

🥰 HEA/CLIFFY🧗‍♀️~ HUGE CLIFFHANGER– This book is book ONE of TWO. You will not get a resolution to this couple’s story in this book. You will get a shocker and then an abrupt ending to keep you hanging! Thankfully book two is set to release in October 2022. Until then Happy Reading My Friends!

Garnet Flats Release Blitz & Review

 

Talia Eden loved Foster Madden for one year, two months and eleven days. It was on day 438 that her love died. The day he chose to marry her best friend. The day she vowed never to think of Foster again.

Until years later when he has the audacity to show up in her small hometown of Quincy, begging for her help.

The ink on his divorce papers is barely dry, yet he comes armed with apologies and promises. She knows it’s all a ploy. Foster is the king of games and secrets. But he’s got delusions the size of Montana if he thinks she’ll help him train for a world championship fight.

Except Talia has forgotten exactly what made Foster famous. The man has dedicated his life to victory. He’s steadfast. He’s determined. And he won’t stop fighting until he’s won her heart.

My Review

Is there anything better than a yummy second chance romance?! How about a delicious slow burn with a side of groveling hero and several good ‘ol helpings of hate to love/angst.  ALL.OF.THAT and more is what you are in for with Garnet Flats. So good y’all. I have loved every single book so far in the Eden’s series and frankly couldn’t wait for Talia’s turn after the glimpses we’ve had of her in the previous books. Author Devney Perry did not disappoint with Talia and Foster’s heart wrenching journey back together after seven years apart and a lot of bitterness, hurt, lies, and misunderstandings.

Garnet Flats is an emotionally gripping tale about a young woman finding her forever person only to have him marry her closest friend instead. That life changing, unforgettable kind of love that when lost you never fully recover from. Oh the devastation your first true broken heart leaves you with, I’m sure most of us remember it well. I know I do. I dove right into this unique twist on the, left me for my best friend trope, and devoured every word of this within a day, as it brought me right back into my feels of first loves, first heartbreaks, and lessons in forgiveness in relationships.

Talia Eden loved her college sweetheart Foster more than anything. She saw her entire future with him. Then in a devastating blow he shocked her by marrying her best friend and roommate. Seven years later he shows up freshly divorced and ready to make amends and win her back. But if he thinks finally telling her why he did what he did will just easily wipe the slate clean, he is in for a rude awakening. Talia is still hurt, and quite frankly straddling that thin line between love and hate.  

When Foster, a UFC fighter ( um holy hotness people 🔥🤤) shows back up in Quincey determined to finally tell the only woman who’s ever truly held his heart why he really broke hers all those years ago he knows it’s not going to be easy peasy. Getting Talia back may be the hardest fight he’s ever taken on. But he’s ready, heart in hand, to jump into the ring and fight it out until he emerges the victor. He’s not looking for a belt, nor a title. He only wants her. He knew whatever anger she threw his way was absolutely his fault and he was ready to own it. He wanted to lay it all out there on the line, while also helping her to remember just how good it used to be between them. He knows he still loves her, and he’s sure hoping she feels the same. Well anger isn’t the only thing causing the heat to rise between these two. 

Everything about Talia and Foster had me hooked from the very beginning. From being back in Quincey, to scenes with Eden’s from the past books in the series. Which is awesome because I am never going to want to part with this series. I will go back for a total series reread at some point for sure. This book broke my heart just as much as it healed it. This standalone with interconnecting characters told in alternating dual POV’s is a great addition to the series. You can start with Garnet Flats or start at the beginning with Juniper Hill today. I already can’t wait for the next book, Jasper Vale.

Never With Me Release Blitz & Review




Title: Never With Me
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 26, 2022

BLURB
Ramsey


I’m out of my depth participating in a blind-date photo shoot. Not only am I meant to act like I’m open for dating, but I’m meant to be sexy and get up close and personal with a complete stranger.

None of the above is me. But I’m a sucker, and my best friend can talk me into anything.

Deacon is the kind of guy my heart could be safe with. But I’ve been taking care of myself for a long time, and I’m not sure I’m ready to rely on anyone else. Not even the handsome, successful older brother of my best friend.


Deacon

I never saw her coming. One date with a beautiful stranger and I’m hooked.

Technically, Ramsey isn’t a stranger. She’s my little sister’s best friend, the same sister who volunteered me because she claims “I’m a workaholic in desperate need of love.”

All I know is I can’t stop thinking about Ramsey and the way her lips felt against mine. I have to see her again. Good thing I’m an attorney, because convincing her to take a chance on me is going to be the hardest case I’ve ever pleaded. She’s worried about the past repeating itself. What she’s yet to figure out is that her fear is unnecessary… never with me.

My Review

Kaylee Ryan has done it again my book lovin’ friends. Dropped right in with another one of her perfectly delicious, sweet, and fantastically swoony stories that make you feel all ooey gooey and fluttery inside. Never With Me is Ramsey and Deacon’s remarkably heartfelt journey that will have you feeling good, maybe a little frustrated a couple of times, and a whole lotta love for ALL the characters in this book. From the very first time they saw each other they had undeniable instant chemistry and an instant connection, making this a super flirty, fun, and definitely a fan yourself because it’s so freaking hot, tale of love.  It just further cemented to me why this author IS and WILL REMAIN one of my one-click favorites for steamy, dreamy, feel-good romances.

One of my favorite things about this author’s works is how big family plays a part in her books/series. You can’t help but to want to be a part of these stories. To be friends or a cousin or someone because I want to be at a family cookout or something hanging out with all these awesome people. One thing is for certain,  I am always up for being swept away into the magical book worlds that author Kaylee Ryan has created. 

Ramsey Rammed Her Way right into my heart from page one with her emotional backstory. From the first paragraph of the prologue I knew this woman deserved so much more than she had ever been given before. She needed to be loved wholly, completely, unequivocally. I love how coming to Willow River was her new start and she was ultimately able to find everything she needed to heal the parts of her that had been cracked and broken by the ones who were supposed to take care of her when she was younger. She found her people. She finally had a true loving support system.

When a favor to her introduces her to, Deacon the drop dead gorgeous older brother of her best friend, Palmer. Instantly attracted but hesitant for several reasons Deacon seriously has his work cut out for him if he wants to wear her down and get her to give him a chance. Not only is he older but also the workaholic brother of her BFF, but he has to penetrate walls of protection put up to protect the heart of a woman that has been hurt and does not trust or intend to ever depend on a man again.

My heart just bled for them both. I love the personal growth her character went through in this book. The way she grew more confident in voicing what fears she had, the things she had been through. The way she opened up. She was already strong but with his backing she was even more so. GAH!! She did good Y’all!

I am definitely Devoted to Deacon. While he may be a workaholic because he has goals that include taking over the law firm where he works when the partners retire. Up to this point he really hasn’t had any drive to find a girlfriend because that would just occupy time he could devote to working instead. But holy moly ladies, he’s a total sweetheart.

He’s sexy and everything about him is the stuff book boyfriend dreams are made of. A successful lawyer who loves his family, is patient, supportive and kind, plus knows how to throw down in pound town. Can I get a HELL Yeah?! Y’all, I would beg this man to allow me the pleasure of hand washing his skivvies after cutting the grass at 3:00 pm on the hottest day in July. Lol Okay so maybe not really dirty laundry because TBH I have seven kids and do enough laundry, but I’m sure there are other ways I could lend a helping hand. 😏

Pretty Please with a Cherry on Top, any wish would be my command. Deacon just did it for me guys. 

This author writes the swooniest of heroes. So henceforth I shall refer to him as  “Deacon the Delicious.”  When you read this you will completely understand why. 

Never With Me is a stand-alone story told in alternating POV with elements of many different tropes. Fans of my best friend’s brother, age-gap, and small town. There is an instant connection and chemistry but we get to see the relationship build and grow as well. This book,   the setting, all the secondary characters kept me engaged and loving every minute.

I am really pumped because this book introduced us to Ramsey’s cousins,  the Kincaid brothers whose stories we will be getting in a new Kincaid Brothers Series, which will feature each of the nine brother’s in his own book. I AM SO EXCITED! Make sure you grab your copy of Never With Me today and fall in love with Ramsey, and Deacon. Get ready for a little kickstart introduction to the hotness that is the Kincaid boys. HAWT DAMN **fans self**

Fame Release Blast & Review

FAME

The final, breathtaking stand-alone in the Secrets in L.A. Series

I guess it’s naïve to say I thought I would be an actress.

But isn’t that why everyone comes to Los Angeles? Fame?

Then again, I’m from here.

And after years of paying my dues, all that fame and fortune was shoved at me with the promise of care for my family.

I’d grabbed for it without truly seeing what I was reaching for. Now I’m trapped in a role that owns my body and slowly steals pieces of my soul.

I wanted to be on camera . . . I never wanted this.

But when an intriguing stranger steps into my life, everything changes.

For the first time in so long, I feel alive—cherished and adored.

But as our stolen glances and secret smiles turn into shared nights and hidden passion, I know it’s only a matter of time before we fall apart.

Because he has no idea what I do for a living, and he works with my boss . . .

Now all my secrets are threatening to expose my deepest shame and ruin so much more than the façade I’ve fought to maintain.

My Review

My friends, FAME is FANTASTICALLY FABULOUS!! It’s MAGICALLY MARVELOUS!! I’m gonna calm down and stop yelling at you in shouty CAPS

But in all seriousness this book y’all. Molly McAdams once again proves why she is one of my absolute favorite authors. She is a must read everything she writes, plus owns every ebook, and signed paperbacks too. It doesn’t matter the genre or trope I know going in that with this author’s work I’m in for a story that will be profound and positively unforgettable. A story that is sure to weave itself through my mind, heart and soul and leave a little piece of itself behind. A story I felt so deeply that I will think back on it for years to come. As I still do with pretty much all of her books I have read thus far. (I will go to my death bed still feeling Taking Chances)

Trust me when I tell you Fame is a story like no other. Jensen and Mia are two imperfect humans who just happen to be perfect for each other. Bringing you the best by giving you a little taste of everything, this sinful and sexy romance is slap full of secrets, lies and mystery. Not skimping on the angst, steam, banter, tension, and a good ‘ol swoony and southern, Georgia bred country boy to come in and make everything all better  (this Georgia girl might be biased but there’s nothing hotter than a GA boy) I promise this book has something for every reader. It will captivate you from paragraph one until the very last sentence. Not just a book but an unputdownable journey to unite two amazingly unique and inspiring characters who against any obstacles that may come between them truly belong together. But what to do when love is inevitable between two people and one is dang near ready to sprint in the opposite direction away from it?  Will love bring them together or will Fame tear them apart? 

Mia is really a special character. She is one of the most unselfish of heroines I have ever had the pleasure of reading, yet her circumstances broke my heart over and over again. Her strength and dedication to her family was commendable. How could you not fall in love with her story? This amazing woman who sacrificially suffered for those she loved most in the world. It was devastating and inspiring at the same time. The internal conflicts are gut-wrenching. But I was so immersed in this story I really felt her struggle and found myself battling the what would I do in real life?

I think her battles with the life she was forced into and its impact on her character as a person just made me love her more. She was a deeply loving character but as much love as she had for others she didn’t have it for herself. I wanted to be able to jump into the book and just hug her and tell her I see you. You are beautiful and I see you for who you are. I see you for why and not what you have to do. She was existing, getting by and surviving. But she wasn’t living. She wasn’t enjoying her life. Until she met Jensen. He brought life back into her. He made her feel things no one ever had. It put the carefully crafted walls she’d put up to hide her secrets behind at risk of crumbling down around her. But for the first time she began to think she finally found someone who might be worth the risk. But there is still so much he doesn’t know about her. What will happen when the truth comes to light?

“You don’t know what my greatest joy is or the worst moments of my life. You don’t know what I’ve done to survive.”

Jensen is deliciously swoony and without a doubt book HUSBAND material. I say husband because this man is better than a book boyfriend. Boy oh boy was he ever hot and so dreamy too y’all. 

He had been burned in the past and that had an impact on him. He certainly wasn’t looking for a relationship, but he was instantly drawn to the beautiful yet emotionally barricaded girl from the third floor of his new office building. Quickly he finds himself unable to resist the need to get to know and win this woman over. He knows it will be no easy feat but not one to give up; he sets out to win her over. He’s just so stinking sweet. He is caring and thoughtful. Successful but humble. Supportive and protective. Loving and kind. Gah! The way he was with her melted me into a puddle of goo y’all! I was a pile of jelly for Jensen. I could go on about him FOREVER

None of that matters because I hear you in songs. I see you when I close my eyes. I feel you in my veins.”

In closing let me just say this book will tug on your heart strings. It will move you. You will laugh, and cry. You will fan yourself, get frustrated, cry again, and swoon so hard. You will fall so hard for all these characters (old and new). The writing is so engaging you feel like one of the gang, a part of the story.  So vividly you feel like you share in the outrage, the excitement, the urge to smack a fool upside the back of his head and tell him to get it together.  Mostly I just wanna see everyone get all the goodness life has to offer.  But alas, I cannot actually be a part of the story and that is just the mark of a truly talented author, the fact that they make you forget that you aren’t. This author does this to me. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME! 

Jensen and Mia’s breathtakingly remarkable journey is not one to be missed. It is the final standalone (with crossover characters) in the Secrets in L.A. series and told in dual POV. You can read the entire series for FREE in Kindle Unlimited. Go grab you some snacks, a drink and hold onto your taters because Fame is gonna take your heart on one heck of a rollercoaster of feelsEnjoy!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A Kingdom of Stars and Shadows Release Blitz & Review

AVAILABLE NOW

FREE in Kindle Unlimited: https://geni.us/StarsandShadows

My Review

Hot Diggity Damn Y’all! There is not a genre or trope Author Holly Renee writes that I do not absolutely obsess over. No lie. I am convinced that she could write the ingredients on a menu advertising a double decker sardine and spam sandwich and I would be the first in line to devour that delicious delicacy. 

This may be this author’s first jump into the fantasy romance pool but she takes it on like Michael Phelps because that’s the kind of word wizard she is, and that is how much she pours herself into each and every project she takes on. BRILLIANT!!

The Kingdom of Stars and Shadows brings us the story of Adara and Evren. Adara, known as the Starblessed and Prince Evren, the non-crowned Prince. Adara has been betrothed since childhood to Prince Gavril, who also happens to be Evren’s brother. She is not happy about this arrangement and decides to do everything in her power to try to escape that fate. Her rebellious and fiery spirit is addictive and you can help but to fall for her. You root for her and your heart bleeds for her. You totally get the draw she has to Evren. This heroine is my kinda gal. Rebellious yet torn. An ass kicker with a heart of gold. Terrified of what’s to come but still so brave and bold. 

Evren is gorgeous and protective. He takes care of Adara in a way that only he can. He is the perfect mix of swoony and alpha. Protective and possessive. Bound by duty and loyalty to his father and brother, a force to be reckoned with. It is a deep struggle for him to watch his brother get closer to taking what he wants so badly. You will fall for him, be frustrated for him and most definitely be fanning yourself over him. He is all kinds of dirty talking, and sexy mysterious power and he will surprise you over and over again. He seems like such a loyal and faithful servant… But to whom is he most loyal?! 

Majestically magical and fabulously forbidden, this story is unique, unforgettably engaging and will have you hanging on every single second from the start until the suckerpunching cliffy at the end. I was left with questions lurking behind everything surrounding Evren. I always felt like I didn’t know everything going on. Like maybe as soon as I thought I had a handle on it I’d get another twist or curve thrown my way to kick things into another gear and I freaking love that feeling.

This is the kind of fantastical fantasy book I live to devour. It’s fascinating and exciting and leaves me giddy with anticipation for the next book, knowing I will get the answers I seek. I’m eager for more Evren, and oh so anxious for all the Adara. Make sure you dive into the dirty deliciousness that is this forbidden, and angsty story full of steam, action, twists, and loads of anger filled banter.  Remember…forbidden fruit always tastes the sweetest. 

I am going to darn near die of anticipation waiting for A Kingdom of Blood and Betrayal. Can one truly die of anticipation? I guess we shall see.  But either way it’s coming this fall y’all. So make sure you add it to your TBR and pre-order it today. FIVE FATED STARS   ⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨

The Boss Project Release Blitz

Title: The Boss Project
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 11, 2022

BLURB

The first time I met Merrick Crawford was during my job interview.

Well, technically, I’d met him twenty minutes earlier when he’d barged into a fitting room a few doors down from my appointment.
I yelled. He yelled. After an argument while standing in my bra, I proceeded to smash the door into the gorgeous jerk, trying to yank it shut.
As you might imagine, I was freaked out when I discovered that the rude guy was my potential new boss.
Yet he didn’t seem to recognize me. Or so I thought… Until we wound up bickering again during my interview and he told me to go sniff my armpit.
Okay, so maybe I hadn’t exactly been changing when he walked in on me. In my defense, I’d been stuck on a hot train for two hours and wanted to make sure I didn’t smell.
I obviously didn’t expect to get the job. But somehow an invitation to a second interview arrived in my inbox.
Before I left, I asked to see Merrick. I needed to know why I was even in consideration after our disastrous start.
Turned out, Merrick only wanted to hire me because I was the least competent candidate. It seemed his board was making him fill the position, against his wishes.
I didn’t really want to work in a place where my boss expected me to fail. But I figured maybe I’d enjoy proving him wrong. It was a little thing I dubbed the boss project.
What I wasn’t prepared for was that there would be other things I’d enjoy doing to Merrick Crawford.
Getting involved with the boss wasn’t the smartest choice.
But you know what they say about choices: Some we regret, some we are proud of. I just had no idea where this one was going to land.

Blind Side Release Blitz & Review

 

Blind Side by Kandi Steiner is now live!

 

Blind Side is a fake dating sports romance that early readers are calling Kandi’s spiciest book yet! Add in that the heroine is a virgin and takes “lessons” from our star athlete Hero on how to please herself, and this is one hot summer release you won’t want to miss!⁣

𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐨𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐠𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐛𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐬𝐚𝐟𝐞𝐭𝐲 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐬𝐤𝐞𝐝 𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞 𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐟𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐠𝐢𝐫𝐥𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐝.⁣

𝐀𝐧𝐝 𝐈 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐬𝐤𝐞𝐝 𝐡𝐢𝐦 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐦𝐲 𝐯𝐢𝐫𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐲.⁣

Clay Johnson has the abs of Adonis and the deadly smirk of the devil, himself. There’s hardly a day he’s not headline material during football season, and never a day he isn’t a bullseye target for every girl on campus.⁣

He used to be the easiest of all the players for me to wrangle as the Public Relations Coordinator, but after a nasty breakup with his high school sweetheart, he’s a mess.⁣

And a complete pain in my ass.⁣

We meet to discuss his behavior and review media relations standards. But when he witnesses how I fall to pieces in front of my guitar-toting crush, his wheels start turning. And he cooks up this absurd plan.⁣

He helps me get noticed. ⁣
I help him make his ex jealous. ⁣
All by pretending to be in a relationship.⁣

What he doesn’t realize is that this bookworm is a virgin, and far from versed in seducing a musician. So, to sweeten the deal, I convince him to help me — not just to get my crush’s attention, but to knock his socks off once I have it.⁣

But the more I come unraveled at the hands of Clay Johnson, the more trouble I have discerning what’s fake and what’s undoubtedly real — particularly, the way my heart flutters every time that breathtaking man touches me.⁣

We set the rules. We put the safeguards in place.⁣

But they say rules are meant to be broken.⁣
They probably should have added that hearts are, too.⁣

My Review


My friends. I am absolutely cuckoo for Clay and Giana!🥰 I happen to love this take on a new adult/sports romance, which is a pretty common trope right now. Author Kandi Steiner attacks Clay and Giana’s story with gusto, giving us two extremely loveable characters that instantly captured my heart. With an attention grabbing storyline from the get go you will be instantly addicted to all things Giana and Clay. Y’all ready for this? Because this is a little bit sweet, a little bit swoony, and whole lotta sexy. Pearl Clutchers get ta clutchin’ because this is the 🔥HOTTEST 🔥virgin heroine romance this girl has ever read!🥵

Clay is still reeling from a shocking and unexpected dumping courtesy of his highschool sweetheart when he happens to notice the awkwardly adorable yet kind of hot Public Relations Coordinator for his team is losing it a bit over the musician at the place where they are having a business meeting. He immediately comes up with an idea. He can help Giana get the musician’s attention and she can help him make his ex jealous. Win Win.They form a plan. They make rules. They begin their lessons Then O-M-G! The lessons, I couldn’t get enough of the lessons. (Fanning myself just think about them) Giana has a special request of her own. These two are fun, flirty, so freaking hot together. The lines quickly start to blur. Is it possible this fake relationship is becoming real?  But the times when they talked and learned about each others growing up. It was just sweet and vulnerable and in those moments you just knew they were meant to be together.

Here are just a few things you can expect from Blind Side. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A Fantastically Phenomenal Five Star Read

🏈 A gorgeous Hero who will frustrate you as well as make your heart flutter

👓A Fake/Opposites Attract Relationship

🏈 A beautiful, sweet, and sassy heroine

💋Ex/Other people causing drama

🏈Scorching Hot Scenes

👓Complete Standalone but will be more in this world

The Ruthless Groom Release Blast & Review

 

The Ruthless Groom by Monica Murphy is now live!

 

I didn’t plan to marry a reclusive heiress. Lucky for me, I find myself attracted to my beautiful new bride. Our arranged marriage connects two powerful companies. That we’re compatible between the sheets is a bonus, but I didn’t bargain on her ex showing up at the wedding reception uninvited.

That pushed me right over the edge.

I protect what’s mine, and Charlotte is now mine, whether she likes it or not. Our honeymoon is a disaster in paradise. I’m angry. She’s resentful. All those swirling emotions explode in the most physical ways.

But even as I’m drawn closer to my new wife, there’s still a threat looming out there. Seamus McTiernan is determined to destroy what we’ve created.

I won’t let anything tear us apart.

He has no idea who he’s dealing with. I will end him.

Watch me.

My Review

Oh hot dog!! I am so digging Perry and Charlotte and couldn’t wait to get more of their story after we left off at the end of The Reluctant Bride. Luckily The Ruthless Groom, book 2 in the Arranged Marriage trilogy, picks right up where it left off. I was just as drawn into this second installment of Perry and Charlotte’s trilogy as I was the first. I will say this story is packed full of delectably dirty scenes, engaging storyline and fantastic characters

This book finds Perry and Charlotte reaping the benefits of their arrangement and giving into their explosive chemistry. But a blast from Charlotte’s past brings out a more jealous, possessive, and distrustful side of Perry we hadn’t seen before. I would say we’re for sure seeing Winston Constantine’s brother and the son of Caroline Constantine. He may have some struggles but he’s super protective and territorial over what is his, and his new wife is his in every way

How will Charlotte and Perry navigate their growing feelings while also battling distrust towards each other? I loved seeing deeper into these characters.  As the layers are being peeled back, and as they are beginning to question if their arranged marriage could have the potential to be more than either of them could have ever imagined. 

Y’all! Protective Perry is Positively Perfect! Even when he is frustrating me, I’m obsessed with him. These two are like the seventh circle of hell hot. They go at each other when they are mad and each can give as good as they get. They are angry at their situation at the lack of control they have over their own lives. But either way they are fantastically explosive together. I find myself wondering when I turn to the next page will there be fighting or you know… 😏

This book has tons going for it but it ends on a jaw dropping cliffhanger. You MUST read The Reluctant Bride before reading this book. Neither is super long but they are addictive so trust me when I say you will plow right through them. Here are just a few things you can expect from The Ruthless Groom. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A Phenomenal Five Star Read

🖤 A Billionaire Alpha Hero who will frustrate you

💍 Arranged Marriage

💕 A beautiful and sweet heroine

🖤 The unforgettable Midnight Dynasty world.

🔥Scorching Hot Scenes 

🌪 Surprising Twists

Misconception Release Blitz & Review




Title: Misconception
A Coming Home Series Standalone
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 7, 2022

BLURB
Hudson


I didn’t plan on kissing my best friend’s twin sister… or falling for her. But it happened all the same. It’s always been Riley, but after I finally get the chance to taste her lips, she ghosts me.

Not exactly the response I was hoping for. Getting out of town for a while, and giving her space, seemed like the best thing for us both. Until the night before my year overseas, and she ended up in my bed.

I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’ve ever experienced, but returning home to find her with a newborn and knowing she’s moved on is a sucker punch to the gut. She can push me away all she wants, but the sexy single mom better get used to me being around, because I’m home to stay.


Riley

I’ve had a thing for Hudson Fleming for as long as I can remember. But I couldn’t get past his friendship with my sister. When I hear that he’s planning on leaving town, I know it’s now or never. Spending the night with him changes my life¾in more ways than one.

Now he’s halfway around the world, and I’m pregnant. Having this baby alone doesn’t scare me half as much as my feelings for Hudson.

When he returns to town, I’m torn between loving and hating him. How can I not since he gave me the greatest gift, then walked away from us both? And now he wants to be a family… like he didn’t break my heart into a million pieces.

My Review

OMG!! Y’all this book was SO GOOD. I mean a twin sister’s BFF/friends-to-lovers/secret baby romance. Heck yeah.🤩  I was all about this book. It was just what I needed in my life right now. I get in kicks where I read a LOT of dark romance and I have been in one lately, but I absolutely need to break up the dark at times and Kaylee Ryan is one of my go to favorites. You just can’t help but to fall head over heels for this author’s characters. Her heroes are the trifecta. Swoony, sweet and oh so smexy. 🔥 Her heroines are fun and flirty and I would most definitely be friends with them all IRL. 

Misconception is Hudson and Riley’s story and part of the Coming Home Series. Which is a fabulous series, so if you haven’t checked it out yet I highly recommend doing so. Each story is a standalone. Anywho…

For years Hudson and Riley have secretly harbored feelings for each other. They run in the same circle of friends and are always around each other. Though assumptions about how the other feels and maybe their biggest hurdle of all is Riley’s twin sister and Hudson’s long term BFF, Raven. The thought of her being upset  has caused neither to make a move…up until now. An unexpected kiss, rash decisions and alcohol lead to an unforgettable journey that will melt your heart, break your heart, and then heal your heart. 🥺

Fall in love with Hudson, Riley and their entire crew in this phenomenally fantastic story that will have you all up in your feels. 🥰 Are you ready to be left feeling all warm and fuzzy with the best kinds of book hangover? Then do yourself a favor and grab Misconception today. It’s sweet, full of heat, and pretty quick to read. Perfect for a hot summer night. Five My Heart’s all a Flutterin’ Stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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. 🤩🥰🔥🥵🥰🤩
