Cover Reveal!! Someday, Somehow by Claudia Burgoa

Someday, Somehow

By Claudia Burgoa

Cover Design: By Hang Le

Release Date: October 3, 2019

 

Blurb

Men and women can be friends.
At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself since George walked into my life.
We bicker as much as we have each other’s backs.
We’re inseparable.
So, she left to find herself and I feel like I can’t breathe without her.
It’s okay, it’s only temporary.
But when she walks back into my life, it’s on the arm of a stranger.
Her fiancé.
Seriously, I just realized I’m in love with her and she’s engaged?

I have six weeks to convince George we’re meant to be together—not only in the kitchen or be forced to watch her marry another man.
Time is running out, and soon, she’ll be gone from my life.
I’m risking everything, will that be enough?

Someday, Somehow is a sexy romantic comedy that’s equal parts funny and flirty. Made of Honor clashes with When Harry Met Sally in a sweet and seductive love story of hopeful hearts and second chances. Bring the laughs and the tissues!

Happy Release Day & Review!!! I Hate You by Ilsa Madden-Mills

See My Review Below!!!

 

I want you . . . even when I hate you.

I Hate You, an all-new enemies to lovers sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills, is available now!

IMMIHateYouBookCover55x85_HIGH.jpg

Blaze Townsend: I hate you.

Charisma Rossi: I hate you more.

She’s been expecting this ever since their latest showdown. She had good reason.

Hottest guy she’s ever seen.

Former fling.

Dumped her in front of her friends.

At her own party.

So no, she’s not about to forgive and forget just because he sits next to her in class.

He thinks all he has to do is turn on those baby blues, and she’ll melt right back into his arms. Please.She’d be crazy to let this cocky player affect her again. (Tell that to her body.)

Charisma Rossi.

Nerd girl with a dash of bad.

The one who got under his skin.

The one he cut loose.

Blaze knows she’s the riskiest prospect at Waylon University, but none of the interchangeable girls he hooks up with have ever made him feel the way she did. There’s absolutely no way he can have the girl and the game.

So why can’t he stop trying to win her back?

Can this wide receiver score the girl or will he make the biggest fumble of his life

My Review..

Now I’ll be the first to admit that I am no spring chicken, I am a vintage gal with a mind of a much younger gal.  And I will also admit that YA/NA trope usually isn’t my go to for my swooning needs.

But when Ms. Madden-Mills writes a story, I am the first one to push the “One Click” button or grab it from my bookstore.  Her stories are amazing no matter what your age may be.

This is Blaze and Charisma’s story, a true tale of the saying “A Thin Line Between Love and Hate” Two very powerful emotions.

I could empathize with Charisma’s self-esteem issues, we all have them at one point in our lives.  Charisma’s past has unfortunately molded her future in a way that built walls around her so thick that nobody could see what a fantastic heart beat inside her.

Blaze, oh this hero.  I could totally relate to him.  I have a child with ADD and to see this fella’s plight really pulled at my heartstrings.  He too has a past that has molded his future and even with his handsomeness and popularity at college, he has his own insecurities and vulnerability that makes you want to squeeze him tight.

Seeing past characters make appearances was lovely and it was like having a mini reunion and catching up with what everyone was doing.  It just brought more to the story!

Ms. Madden-Mills has yet to write a story that I haven’t devoured and loved immensely!  I Hate You is no exception! Well done!

Blurb:
The first time I saw Alessandro, two things came to mind.
Sexy and naked.
You get the idea.

Thanks to him, my flight from hell became the best one I’d ever been on.
Turned out, the engaging, gorgeous passenger, was my new professor…and the ultimate jerk.

Rude, prick, cocksucker, were a few choice names I’d love to call him.
How was this offensive man the same human I’d met on the plane?

His soul must’ve been invaded by demons after leaving the airport.
To think I’d almost joined the mile high club with him. Almost.
Everywhere I went he was there raining more insults on me.

Until I saw him with his adorable mini look-alike.
That charming little boy melted my heart.
Before I knew it, I’d accepted his son’s invitation to play soccer.

What the hell was I thinking?
I hated that man.

But naked and sexy had gotten me into this mess.
And not even hate could get me out.

Blurb:
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been the dark to my sister’s light—the awkward loner to her social butterfly. Growing up, she had it all: our parent’s unyielding approval, perfect grades, a permanent spot at the popular table, and the attention of the hottest guy ever—Duke Kincaid.

After eighteen years of living in her shadow, I couldn’t wait to escape—to finally be my own person. Yet here I am, I’m back in my hometown, once again in Valorie’s shadow. Only now, it’s eternal.

I had life all planned out: join the force, marry Valorie Parsons, and start a family of our own. I have the job, but the girl and all my dreams died before my very eyes.

Finally ready to move on, I agree to a blind date. Imagine my shock when I arrive and find, Valorie’s twin sister, waiting across the table from me. Mallory should be a reminder of all that I’ve lost, but instead she feels like my redemption . . . like maybe life’s giving me a second chance.

But, how can I be enough for her when I’ve already given her sister the best of me?

Excerpt
I pulled away with a soft laugh. “We better get to the bed before I lose the ability to use my knees.”
“Lead the way.”
I rolled my eyes, grabbed his hand, and pulled him toward the bed.
Turning, I sat on the edge of the bed and eyed Ryan expectantly. How did I do this again?
Ryan chuckled as he toed off his work boots. They fell to the floor with a thump. “You should see your face right now.”
“Do I look freaked? Because I feel kinda freaked. I don’t know how to do this. I mean, I’ve done this before—just not this this, ya know?”
“Hey, hey.” Ryan sat next to me on the edge of the bed. “There’s no right way or wrong way to do this. There’s no game plan or checklist or whatever. We just do whatever feels right, whatever you want.”
“Okay.” I gave a shuddering sigh as I looked into his gorgeous eyes.
“Then I want you to kiss me.”
“Maybe we should—”
“No. You said whatever feels right. And it always feels right when you kiss me.” I leaned into him and his arm came around my shoulders and settled in a way that just…felt right. “Please.”
Ryan groaned. “Christ. You have no idea what it does to me when you bring out the eyes. You could ask me anything, and I’d probably do it.”
“Then kiss me already.”
He leaned toward me, his lips hovering over mine, and then he whispered, “As long as you promise to only use your powers for good.”
“No promises,” I whispered back.
Ryan’s eyes flared and he groaned. “Fuck me.”
Then his lips covered mine, and I lost the ability to think. All I could do was feel. His amazing lips. The way his hair felt in my hands because I had to hold him somewhere. The way my heart raced when he suckled on my tongue.
Minutes later I was the one tugging frantically at his clothing because I had to feel him. Everywhere.
Ryan’s laugh was husky in my ear and made me want to moan. “I think the only thing hotter than your gorgeous eyes is how eager you are right now.”
I swung my leg over his hips so I could straddle him. Looking into his eyes, I smiled wickedly.
Ryan cleared his throat unevenly. “Uh, I stand corrected. Apparently you can get way hotter.”
The power I felt in that moment… The fact that I had this man, this crazy hot guy, so worked up and just willing to do anything that I wanted? I think I could’ve come from that thought alone.
Then I pulled his shirt up and over his head.
Or maybe the view of his hard, tattooed body would send me over the edge.
I ran an appreciative hand over the art covering his chest and arms. The heart on his left pec with “family” written in script. The flamed motorcycle racing down his arm. And the muscles. Sweet baby Jesus, the muscles! He had so many muscles I couldn’t even…
He took advantage of my temporary paralysis and tugged my shirt up and over my head. A reverent expression stole across his face. “Ah, Hope. You’re just…”
He trailed off in a groan before he took my lips again in a harsh, hungry kiss.
I ached to feel those lips on my nipples. Unconsciously arching toward him, I moaned into his mouth. Finally I couldn’t take it anymore. I reached behind me to unclasp my bra but my fingers were swiftly batted away by Ryan’s.
He made quick work of the clasp and then my bra was falling down my arms, baring me to Ryan’s hungry eyes.
“Christ, they’re even more gorgeous than I imagined.” He lifted a hand and cupped the underside of my left breast.
My cheeks heated with his compliment. Or the contact. I didn’t know which. I bit my lip and looked down at where his tanned, calloused fingers held my pale breast. “You’ve been thinking about my boobs for a while?”
Ryan groaned and brushed his stubbled cheek against my nipple. “All night. And occasionally when I was alone the last few months. I couldn’t get you out of my head after that first night. How you looked. That scent. The way your voice sounded.”
“And my boobs?” I teased. But still, I was caught by the way he remembered me. I’d had such an impact on him that he thought about me, too?
“There’s no way to get these babies out of my mind.” Ryan murmured as he rasped his cheek against my hard nipple again. Then he finally stopped teasing me and gave what I craved. He captured the tip of my breast in his mouth and suckled hard.
And I melted. I think I groaned or something. I know I burrowed a hand into his hair and held him against me. Like I was afraid he’d try to get away.
Ryan pulled back—as much as my greedy hands would let him—and blew gently on my wet nipple before turning his head and laving attention on my other, poor, neglected tip.
I closed my eyes and let my head fall back as the sensations shrouded me.
I wanted more. I wanted deeper. I wanted him all. My thighs clenched and I was seconds away from my second orgasm of the night when Ryan pulled away with a
groan.
“Shit, beautiful.” His breath was warm against my shoulder. “You keep grinding on me like that and this show is gonna be over before I even get out of my pants.”

My Review…

Burns Brothers Book 2

Oh I was so looking forward to the next book in this series!  I fell in love with the whole Burns crew in Build.

This is Ryan and Hope story.  And what a fast story it is!! I couldn’t put it down once I started it! There is a bit of mystery and intrigue when it comes to the patriarch of the Burns family and I can’t wait to see how that plays out in future stories.

Ryan is the “middle” child, the wild one.  He is trying hard to overcome his anger issues and become a better man for his family.  A chance meeting to deliver a custom motorcycle changes Ryan’s way of life.  Underneath the tough exterior beats the heart of a good man, a warrior.  His loyalty to his family is second to none.

Hope is trying to find her way in the world in which she finds herself.  She always felt like she was a burden to her family.  When she is introduced to the world in which her father lives, well the only good thing is meeting Ryan.

The chemistry between Ryan and Hope is swoony and oh so hot! Their relationship is anything but ordinary.

You see the whole Burns clan in this story, their loyalty to each other is sometimes harsh and ugly towards outsiders but it comes from the heart.

I cannot wait to see who’s story is next!! Is it Dylan? Sabrina? Nathan? Gahhh the wait is gonna kill me! Well done Ms. Archer!

Something Like Hate

By Claudia Burgoa

Release Date: August 15, 2019

 

 

Blurb

Between a troublesome client and my fake-girlfriend-for-my-sister’s-Cancun-wedding canceling at the last minute.
I’m having the day from hell.
Then I spot Claire. Sexy. Smart. Sassy. 
So one of my superstar employees is boarding the same plane. 
With her help, I could kill two problems with one tequila shot.
That thing about never mixing business with pleasure? 
I should’ve remembered.
Now the hottest one-night stand I’ve ever had is my biggest business rival.
We’re after the same client.
I’m after her heart.
The trick is how to win one without losing the other.
Because when love has you by the balls, it’s time to play dirty.

USA Today bestselling author Claudia Burgoa spins a new romantic comedy. This hot office rivalry romance will have you swooning and laughing your panties off!

Something Like Hate is a full-length novel based on Miller and Claire’s short story, “The Accidental Hookup,” which was previously released in Spring Fling: A Romance Anthology

My Review…

Oooooo this story is vengeance at it’s finest!

A thin line between love and hate indeed!

Something Like Hate is the story of Miller and Claire.  

A chance circumstance brings these coworkers together and it also tears them apart. The angst is off the charts! I kept turning pages wanting to see what happens.

Claire is a fantastic heroine.  She is fierce, she is independent, and she is also fantastic in her career.  I loved her strength after everything that had happened to her and what she accomplished.  Her need for vengeance is strong, but also tempered with the fact of her feelings for Miller.

Oh Miller, what a hero.  He is so wrapped up in his career and nothing will distract from that.  Until the chemistry between Miller and Claire heat up the pages! He realizes the colossal mistake he made and bides his time until he can make things right again. I loved the secondary characters, both Claire and Miller’s families bring so much more to the story!

I am so glad I was introduced and have the chance to read Ms. Burgoa’s stories!! You can’t go wrong!  Get your hands on this standalone book!
