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!!

Mischief Night Release Blast & Review

Release Date: January 20 


When it came to Romeo and Juliet, a kiss was never just a kiss.

The Brotherhood. 

There was only one way in and one way out: death.

Power.

That was the code we lived by. It was like a religion in our world. Men would fight for it. Die for it. Kill for it.

Sacrifice.

It was a way of life. Family. Freedom. Our very souls. Everything we had came at a price.

Love.

That was the biggest illusion of all.

I f*cked up and fell in love with the enemy. She’s too good for me, too good for this world I’ve been bred to conquer. But I couldn’t stay away. When I was near her, the monster beneath the surface begged to be set free.

She was untainted. I wanted to desecrate her.
She was flawless. I wanted to ruin her.
She was light. I wanted to drag her into the darkness.
She was forbidden. I took her anyway.
I crossed a line and started a war. Both of our families were out for blood.
The only question is, who will bleed first?

*This is book one in a series but may be read as a standalone. No cliffhanger. Please read content warning.*

My Review

Holy Secrets and Deception Y’all!! This story is deliciously dark and dirty. There are so many unexpected things going on in this book from the very beginning. I love the entire premise of Mischief Night. It’s got this whole secret society feel. But with no rules or supervision, there’s no telling what these rich kids will get up to or what the consequences are for the things they get up to. 

The history of the protective nature of Caspian towards Tatums drew me right into this book. The dirty talking and forbidden aspects to Tatum and Caspian is everything I love and look for in a book like this. The dynamics of this world, the elite social standings, the corruption… gah!! I’m obsessed with storylines like this. The rebelliousness of these characters had me quickly addicted to this series and I can’t wait for more. 

This story is full of secrets, lies, action, steamy scenes, and mystery. You will have plenty of “make you want to throw your kindle” moments of frustration. It’s so exciting to know we will get more from this series, but Caspian and Tatum’s story may be read as a complete standalone. This was my first book by this author but I can’t wait to start devouring her back log. I really like her style!

Blurb:

“You got married on your divorce-cation?”

That would unfortunately be correct.

I was hanging with the girls, celebrating my divorce when I saw him, my crush, sitting in the corner of the bar all alone. Being single and looking for a wild night, I asked him if he wanted to join me. To my delight, he said yes.

Drinks were consumed, fun was had and then . . . one drunken conversation with a cranky gondolier in Las Vegas led to an Uber lift through a drive-thru wedding chapel with the incredibly hot, British bad boy, Pike Greyson.

On paper, it seemed like I hit the jackpot. And if I wasn’t fresh from a toxic marriage, I would have absolutely noticed the finer things about him.

But I wanted nothing to do with being married, so when I arrived back home from my eventful weekend in Vegas, the last thing I expected to see was a new doting husband already moved in.

I asked for an annulment, he pulled a Ross Geller and said no.

That’s right, he said NO! Instead, he asked for three months to prove we could be good together.

Insanity clearly knocked him in the head and the only way I could convince him to give up on our sham of a marriage was to show him just how wrong we were for each other. Only problem with that was, he saw right through my every prank, every trick, and every yearning emotion I attempted to mask.

 

 

Oh.  What a fun read this was. Meghan’s stories never fail to captivate me with a perfect concoction of wit, steam, banter, great characters and a fantastic storyline to suck you in. Pike and Cora’s story is all of that and more. Heart warmingly hilarious , and just enough of a mix of sweet and dirty, this different take on the “ waking up in Vegas married” trope will keep you both entertained and entranced. 

After a divorce that leaves her with some emotional scars, Cora and her BFF’s head to Vegas to celebrate her “divorce-cation.” She wants to put that whole “ to get over someone, get under someone else” thing to use with some no strings attached fun. Too much fireball and a fun night out ends up with her married to a sexy Brit, who just so happens to be a new teacher at her brother’s school, she’s been crushing on. Waking up the next morning, Cora finds herself in quite the pickle. How will she get herself out of this situation before it becomes public knowledge?  

Pike Greyson has got himself in a doozie of a mess. He’s accidentally married the hot sister of his coworker who hates him. But getting out of this is not going to be so easy. Due to certain circumstances he now has to stay married to Cora and she’s definitely not excited about that option. He manages to talk her into giving him three months to convince her. She’s throwing out quite the antics to push him away, but Pike isn’t easily discouraged. He can spar with the best of them.  He’s ready to fight back with kindness and using any “assets” he has in his arsenal.  If revenge is a dish best served cold” he will happily lap up every icy morsel just to break down her walls. 

This book had lots of lol, funny moments, tons of steam, hilarious antics back and forth, and fabulous secondary characters. It gave you all the feels and a perfectly wrapped up HEA. You will love all the characters and obsess over the fantastically flawed friendships between Pike, Cora and Keiko. 

This book was captivating from the beginning to the end and gave us just enough angsty moments to have us wondering if this couple can get it together or not? I fell in love with the sweet yet incredibly sassy Cora and Pike was book boyfriend perfection. This is a dual POV novel and is the third standalone book with this group of interconnected characters. 

As much as it was heartfelt and steamy and it was also sweet and funny, I will definitely pick this story up again to visit this couple because I still want more from this great group of characters and the fun, laughter and feelings they bring.

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.”

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. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

In Silence She Screams Cover Reveal

In Silence She Screams, an all-new dark mafia romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Amo Jones is coming November 4th, and we have the incredible cover!

Love will never die if it exists on the lips of death. I often thought about this while I was locked inside my Doll House in Patience. Groomed every second of every day, they made sure to cover all of the darkness lurking in my soul with the false guise of perfection. The soul is fickle. Naked to the public eye and only visible to the owner, a soul bleeds every time it’s put through pain. But when that’s hidden, it spreads. The trick is to protect it from reaching your brain.
It was too late for me.
Until I met them.
One was an Elite King.
One was a Brother of Kiznitch.
Both were liars.
I’m Lilith Patience, The Sorcerer of Death and daughter of one of the most feared organizations known to man. After being thrust into the notorious world of Midnight Mayhem, I found myself coiled around a past that I want to forget and a future that could destroy me. I love two men, and they love me as much as they love each other, but when the demons of my past tighten their grip around my throat, will I finally let them strip away the layers of perfection to get to my rotten, withered soul? Maybe.
Or maybe they’ll die trying.

Puck Shy Release Blitz & Review

Puck Shy by Teagan Hunter is now live!

I’m having the definition of a bad year.

Game Six loss costing my team the Cup? Check.
Getting arrested and ruining my image? Check.
Almost getting run over after my car breaks down? Oh, look–a hat trick.

My contract is up with the Carolina Comets this year, and I need to get it together if I want to stay with the team.

I need relaxation, not a relationship.

But when I’m scrolling on a dating app and stumble across the pretty girl who almost ran me over, I know I can’t let her walk away this time.

Harper is funny, smart, and doesn’t care about hockey.

I’m not supposed to be focusing on anything other than my career, yet I can’t get Harper off my mind.

I know I shouldn’t fall for her…but I think I already have.

Reckless Player Cover Reveal

R.C. Stephens has revealed the cover for Ruthless Player!

Releasing November 30, 2021

Holland
Hockey winger and campus hottie, Cole Davis, might be an MVP with the ladies, but I’m not falling for a player…not with medical school on the line.

With our best friends dating, our forced proximity is inevitable.
 
That doesn’t mean I have to like it—or the way he makes me feel. Like I’m missing out and there’s more to life than sitting on the sidelines.
 
It only takes one moment of weakness to remind myself why I should have stayed away from Cole.
 
He might be a ruthless player, but nothing about this is a game.
 
Cole
Holland Donovan knows exactly what she wants out of life—and it isn’t me.
 
She’s not looking for any distractions, and I’m a one-night kind of guy, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting her.
 
From the first electric kiss—I know one night will never be enough.

I just need to convince her that I’m in it for the long haul—this isn’t just about scoring.
 
On the ice I’m a pro at blocking shots and stealing passes, but when it comes to Holland the rules change.
 
I won’t stop fighting for her, for us, until I make her mine.

Presley

Harper picked up the notebook that contained my to-do list from the table and opened to a fresh page. Clicking the pen open, she scribbled across the top.

To do with Levi

I chuckled. “Are we making a dirty to-do list?”
She wiggled her eyebrows and put the pen to the paper. “We certainly are.” “Tell me one thing you fantasize about doing with him.”
Yep, I was definitely drunk, because sober me wouldn’t have participated in this. Though, even in this state, I felt my cheeks blush. “Well, every day he goes out back and does pull-ups in that big oak tree. Sometimes I imagine he’s naked while doing them, and then I walk out naked, too. I wrap myself around him like a koala and he’s a tree, and he keeps doing the pull-ups. Hoisting us both up and down.”
Harper smirked. “Nice start.” She then jotted down koala pull-ups. “What else you got?”
“Well, I also have this running fantasy that I’m watching him do the pull-ups from my bedroom window with binoculars, and then I lie down on the bed and…you know…go to town on myself. And when I’m just about to orgasm, I look up at the window and see Levi with the binoculars. He’s watching me masturbate from outside.”
“Oooh… I like that one.” Harper wrote down voyeur masturbation.
For the next half hour, we polished off our spiked lemonades, laughed a lot, and added more than a dozen sexual to-do tasks to my list. It was the most fun I’d had in ages. But Harper had to fly home in the morning, and I didn’t want her to have a raging hangover. So rather than make another pitcher of spiked lemonade, I grabbed her a water bottle and some Motrin and told her to drink up before going to bed.
But as I walked around and shut off the lights, another fantasy hit me. “That peach cobbler we had for dessert at the restaurant was orgasmic, wasn’t it?”
“It sure was.”
I pointed to the notepad. “Sit on Levi’s face while eating that pie.”
Harper had been drinking water and spit it out all over the place. “Oh my God. That is most definitely going on the list!” She picked up the pen and spoke while jotting something down. “Double orgasmic peach cobbler.”
We started to crack up, but a knock interrupted our laughter. At least it interrupted mine. I looked up to find Levi standing in the doorway to the living room.
My eyes widened. “Levi… What are you doing here?”
His brows lifted. “I own half the place.”
“No, I meant I didn’t know you were back.”
He looked between Harper and me and seemed to smirk. “Oh, I’m back.”
My palms started to sweat. “I didn’t hear you come in. How long have you been…standing there?”
Levi tilted his head, and his smirk elevated to a cocky smile. “Not too long.”
Oh my God. I wanted to crawl into a hole and never come out. What if he heard? I suddenly felt pretty damn sober. “Umm…well, this is my friend Harper. She’s leaving early tomorrow, so we were just going to bed.”
He nodded. “Nice to meet you, Harper.”
Harper stood and hiccupped. She covered her grinning mouth. “Nice to meet you, too. Your family’s inn is beautiful.”
“Thank you.”
Her eyes shifted to me. “Although there’s a lot to do around here. Presley and I made a list. You might want to take a look at it and get going on some of the new to-do tasks we added.”
My eyes nearly bulged out of my head, and I lunged for the notebook on the table.
Levi squinted at me. “Everything okay, Presley? You seem stressed.”
“I’m fine!”
He nodded slowly. “Right.”
“Alright….” I grabbed Harper’s arm and tugged. “We’re going to bed. Welcome home.”
Levi never moved from the living room doorway as he watched me drag my friend out of the room.
Harper waved over her shoulder. “’Night, Levi. Enjoy your to-do list!”
Somehow I managed to get Harper to her room without her yelling anything too obscene. But for the next half hour, I lay in my bed with my heart pounding. What if he’d heard us? What if he’d been standing there listening the entire time? Oh my God. I covered my face with my hands. The things I said I wanted to do to him. My head began to ache, and tomorrow’s hangover hadn’t even started yet.
After another twenty minutes of lying there freaking out in the dark, my mouth was so parched that I needed a bottle of water. But there was no way I wanted to run into Levi again. So I cracked open my bedroom door and listened for any sounds of someone moving out in the common area. Finding it quiet, I snuck down the hall and peered around the corner to see if any lights were still on. They weren’t, so I breathed a sigh of relief and went to the kitchen for a drink.
I guzzled half a bottle of water before turning to slink back to my bedroom. But I froze at the sight of Levi standing in the kitchen doorway. My hand flew up to cover my racing heart. “Oh my God. You scared me.”
“Sorry. I was just going to head out to grab a bite to eat.”
“Oh…there are leftovers from lunch in the fridge, if you want. I made chicken pot pies this morning.”
Levi held my eyes for a moment. “Thanks, but I think I’m going to go out.” He walked over and leaned down to whisper in my ear. “I have a real hankering for peach cobbler.”

Oh.
My.
God.

My jaw dropped to the ground. I had no idea what to do or say.
Levi winked as he walked to the door. “Get some sleep. I wouldn’t want you to be too tired to work on that to-do list.”
