See My Review Below!!!



I am celebrating the release of Tanner: A Sexton Brothers Novel by Jeannine Colette and Lauren Runow! One-Click Tanner today and binge on the Sexton Brothers all weekend!

Title: Tanner: A Sexton Brothers Novel
Age Group: Adult

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 7, 2019

Book Description

“A kiss was all I needed.”

“Looks like you got what you wished for.”

“Yes. About that…”I was supposed to find a finely dressed businessman, have a one-night stand and forget about my failed relationship. Instead, I meet Tanner Sexton—a gorgeous man in street clothes, messy hair and the sexiest smile I’ve ever seen.

When my ex shows up at the bar, Tanner notices my panic and kisses me just so the prick can see. Then he takes off, leaving me breathless.

So, I do what any rational person would. I chase after him onto the subway, and embark on a wild night in New York City with a complete stranger.

No matter how much I fight it, this mysterious artist painted his soul onto my skin, and I haven’t been able to forget him. Our romance is one for the ages, but age isn’t the only thing standing in our way.

My Review…

A Sexton Brothers Novel

First, I have to say that all of these books can be read as a stand alone!

I have been waiting, rather impatiently, for Tanner’s book and what a moving story it was!

This is Tanner & Harper’s story.  There are so many reasons why I absolutely loved this story.  First is the age twist, I admired this, I embraced it!

Second, Tanner….oh my me, this man has a way with words.  He is an artist with an old soul. The things he says to Harper will make you melt into a swoon puddle and will need a ice cold blast of his father and stepmother to make you whole. The way he thinks, the way he moves, hell the way he just IS…it’s art personified and that is a true testament to the writing skills of Ms. Colette and Ms. Runow.

Harper is a down to earth, rule follower.  She is nursing some serious hurt and needs to escape reality.  She finds her escape in Tanner.  Even when she has doubts, worries and just is plain old scared, Tanner makes magic and makes her believe in herself again.

Last but certainly not least was the lovely view at past characters, not so much to override the main story, but just enough to see what has become of them.

This was an amazing story, Tanner’s words will stay with me for a long, long time!!

Cover Reveal! Maybe Later by Claudia Burgoa

 

Title: Maybe Later
Author: Claudia Burgoa
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: Hang Le

Release Date: March 7, 2019

 

Blurb
My personal assistant—a.k.a. half my brain—has abandoned me to have a baby. Alright, alright, I’m not a total jerk, but the temporary virtual assistant Carla left in her place is driving me crazy.
I’ve repeatedly refused to fill out Amy Walker’s way-too-friendly questionnaire. But somehow, she ninjas me into giving up details about my private life—all while suffering her oh-so-subtle jabs at my likes, dislikes, even my system for running my business.
I don’t care what she heard, I am not a problem child.
I just know what’s tried and true.
At first, her feel-good P.S. quotes sounded more like B.S. Yet our emails and texts gradually take on a new dimension, and I find myself thinking of her as something I haven’t cultivated in a long time. A friend.
Maybe she’s right. It’s time I get a life. Starting with stepping out from behind the screen and putting my feelings on the line. I’ll never know unless I try.
Note: Contains a grumpy, workaholic tech CEO with a guarded heart, and a virtual assistant whose skills border on diabolical. Also, two cats named Ramen and Sushi.

New Release & Review!! in-ten-tion by Ava Harrison

See My Review Below!!!

Title: in·ten·tion: a novel

Author: Ava Harrison

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 6, 2019

 

I had it all.
Dream job, fancy apartment, great family.
But there was one thing I didn’t have.
Would never have.
Then he showed up.
Rich.
Arrogant.
Condescending.
He came to me with an ultimatum, and I had no choice but to agree. I needed to convince the world that I was Nathaniel Harrington’s girlfriend so his legacy would stay intact.
Spending time with him would be difficult.
And fooling the world would be even harder.
But persuading my heart into thinking that his kisses meant nothing and that his gentle touches were all in my head, would be impossible.
I was falling for him.
But fate had other plans.
Our time was limited.
Because I knew the truth.
A truth that would end us.

My Review…

Wow, just wow… Another new to me author and I am slapping myself for not jumping on her stories before now!  Another author for me to stalk! (But in a professional, respectable way of course!) Ha!!

in-ten-tion is the story of Nathaniel and Madeline.

This story is gonna run your heart through the blender. This story is full of feels, all the feels! From laughter to sorrow and swooniness. The “Peter Pan” element of the story was magical and I loved the nicknames that Nathaniel and Madeline had for each other.

The slow burn of their relationship kept me turning the pages until the very end and I was sad that it was over.

I could really empathize with the struggles that Madeline is going through.  A huge bonus for me is being able to really delve into a character like that is a testament to great writing.

Nathaniel is the epitome of the alphahole playboy.  He hasn’t needed to face his responsibilities until it’s almost too late.

You can bet that I will be going back and adding all of Ms. Harrison’s books to my TBR list! I loved getting a glimpse at secondary characters that I am sure have their own stories.  She teased enough about them to really grab my attention and made me want to know more!

You have a new fan in me Ava Harrison! Well done and I can’t wait to see what comes out next!

STALK HER

A DUKEY’S DARK DELIGHTS TITLE.

A collection of Dinky (small) Dark reads.

by KER DUKEY

Ever get that feeling you’re being watched?

You probably are.

Her sad eyes.

Her thick lips.

Her long dark hair.

Her quickening of breath.

Her hurried footsteps.

Her undiluted fear.

The anxiety a woman has when she knows she’s being followed does something to the sadistic animal inside me.

We all have issues, mine just run a little deeper than most.

My sister and I had a childhood tarnished by an abusive parent.

We grew up two very different breeds of our mothers’ creation.

Then I discover the beautiful, yet broken, Alice Young.

She’s seeking advice, a place to unburden her thoughts.

What she gets is a dangerous, callous predator who wants to quench his thirst with her tears.

My precious, Alice, feels so alone, but she’s not alone.

I’m watching her.

Erik Ross feeds on the fear of others.

Alice Young may prove to be too damaged, for even his appetite.

Meet Author Ker Dukey

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bedtime stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script. I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so I thought it best that I tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made of light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

Blurb:
I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention.

First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost.

But women never keep my attention for more than a night.

Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast.

When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.

Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer.

Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night.

And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of.

I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her.

I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble.

Happy Release Day & Review!! Luck of the Devil by Meghan March

See My Review Below!!!

New York Times bestselling author Meghan March continues the story of ruthless, calculating billionaire Jericho Forge in Luck of the Devil. 

MMLuckoftheDevilBookCover5x8_MEDIUM

My poker face has always been one of my greatest assets, along with my grit and determination. I was beholden to no one. Asked permission for nothing.

Then Jericho Forge took my life by storm.

I traded my freedom for something infinitely more precious, but I didn’t realize he was holding an unbeatable hand.

Now, all I have to do is survive the high-stakes game that is my life—with my heart intact.

But not falling in love with Forge? That will take the luck of the devil. 

Luck of the Devil is the second book of the Forge Trilogy, and should be read following Deal with the Devil. The Forge Trilogy concludes in Heart of the Devil.

My Review…

Book 2 of the Forge Trilogy….

Gaaahhhh! Ms. March just upped the excitement level to unmeasurable levels in this next installment of the Forge Trilogy…

Luck of the Devil picks up right where Deal with the Devil left off! (See my review here!!)

I have to say that the visuals that Ms. March paints with her words are amazing! I have had to stop a few times while reading this and just stare at a wall and I could just “see” the beautiful places and beautiful ships.

India is coming to grips with her relationship with Jericho.  She is in a struggle between her heart and her brain.  She is still on the fence with her trust in Jericho.

Jericho is struggling too.  With the help of some sage advice from a friend he decides to give it his all.  He is still harboring secrets, and we don’t know the full extent of them yet, but it was swoony to read about the lengths he will go through to get into the good graces of India.

Full of excitement, danger, romance and overall smexiness this book is fantastic! Ms. March is a professional tease in all the good ways and I can’t wait for the final installment of this trilogy!
