Happy Release Day & Review – Family Ties by Stephie Walls

See My Review Below!!

Release Date: June 21, 2018

Cover Design: Wicked by Design

 

Synopsis

 

With a history like ours, the meaning of the word family tended to tangle into something unrecognizable. DNA and bloodlines didn’t tie us together, and neither did our last names. Various shades of grey blurred the branches of our twisted family tree.

I wasn’t her brother.
They weren’t my parents.
Not that it mattered…

She was off limits.

Portia was my friend.
Then my foster sister.
And she’d always be the love of my life.

About the Author

 

Bestselling author, Stephie Walls is a lover of words—the more poetic the better. She lives on the outskirts of Greenville, South Carolina in her own veritable zoo with two dogs, three cats, the Mister, and Magoo (in no preferential order). She would thrive on coffee, books, and Charlie Hunnam if it were possible, but since it’s not, add in some Chinese food or sushi and she’s one happy girl.

My Review…

You’re my lemon pie… 

I love the catchphrases in Stephie’s books.  They are amazing!

I have admired Stephie’s words since I read Label Me Proud. She knows how to write a story full of love, angst and odds that seem insurmountable.  She does it with poise and class and doesn’t have to dumb it down to make people understand.

Yes there is a bit of taboo in the subject of the story, but it’s slight and it actually brings more to the story of Jude and Portia.  They are foster siblings and grew up together, in a unconventional way. They were drawn together by personal tragedies. But that was also what seemed to have separated them too…

This story of Jude and Portia was original, fresh and it was a page turner.  Yes they were young, but their world experiences had aged them beyond their years.  And I truly believe that Jude was an old soul.

The two of them had depended on each other for such a long time that it was almost written in the stars that they should be together.

The words flowed from the page and I could really feel the emotions from both Jude and Portia.

I am in awe at how Stephie handled the subject of this book and made me admire her all the more.  This is definitely a must read book!  I am so glad I have been introduced to her work.  Well done Stephie! I cannot wait to see what you come out with next! Don’t ever stop writing.

Sunshine and the Stalker

by K Webster and Dani René
Publication Date: June 11, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Sweet & Sexy Stalker Romance

Available in KindleUnlimited: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

Dating is difficult for someone like me.
I’m obsessive, arrogant, and rude.
This means I must be creative when bedding a woman.
I learn what I can about her through whatever means necessary.
Some call it stalking. I call it clever research.
It gets me what I want and when I want it.
When I get bored, I move on.
My system works like a charm…
Until a little ray of SUNSHINE shows up.

***

Dating is nonexistent for me.
I’m quirky, silly, and inexperienced.
This means my romantic life is certainly lacking.
I don’t date because no one’s interested.
Some say I’m an independent woman who doesn’t need a man.
But I know I’m on the fast track to becoming a lonely cat lady.
How many cats are too many cats anyway?
My boring world stays that way…
Until my future stepmother’s STALKER shows up.

Happy Release Day & Review – Craving Mr. Kinky by A.M. Madden & Joanne Schwehm

See My Review Below!!

Craving Mr. Kinky by A.M. Madden and Joanne Schwehm

Publication Date: June 20th, 2018
Series: Mr. Wrong #4
Genre: Contemporary Romance

CMK_FrontCover_Lo_Res_Final

Here’s a tip: When you least expect it, expect it.

I’d been known to have my share of beautiful women. Usually, I met them in a bar, through a mutual acquaintance, or even when photographing them.

Imagine my surprise when a gorgeous blonde drove her car into mine on the way to a party.

No more than a minute after our run-in, a string of colorful words flew from her mouth in rapid fire.

Unexplainably, the angrier she became the harder I got. All sorts of scenarios played in my head of how I could get her to shut up. I was all for feisty women, but I preferred leaving that for the bedroom—not on the streets of New York.

When I learned she was a school teacher, that worsened my disposition. What man didn’t have a dirty teacher fantasy at one point in his life? I decided it was my turn to teach her a thing or two… or so I thought. Little did I know, Miss Prim-and-Proper would turn the tables on me.

She called me Mr. Kinky, and that was fine with me.

Lesson learned: Desire always trumps logic.

My Review…

I love these two together! They write the swooniest dang books ever!!

Craving Mr. Kinky is the story of Cassie and Dante.  And what a story it was!

Cassie is perfection! She has successfully broken from her upbringing to do what she wants to do! She has the insecurities and vulnerabilities that a lot of women have.  Cassie was a character that I could really relate to!

Dante….oh my me, Dante is just wowza! The way that A.M and Joanne can describe his stare is just a small testament to their writing.  He is a photographer, so he sees “beauty” everyday.  But when he meets Cassie, well then he sees what true beauty really is.  And how he talks to Cassie. Just swoon.

It was lovely to see past characters make an appearance in Cassie and Dante’s story! It was like a reunion of friends! It was fantastic to see how they were doing!

Sit when you read this for safety reasons! This is definite MUST READ! (That’s right, I said it in all caps!) Get your hands on this and on all their books!

I can’t wait to see what they come out with next!!

From Wall Street
Journal and USA Today Bestseller Vivian Wood

Cynic. F*ck up.
Outsider.
That’s Jameson in a nutshell – not to mention drool-worthy, dreamy, and perfect fantasy object.
He’s also my older brother’s best friend and business partner.
I’ve had a thing for Jameson ever since I was old enough to have dirty dreams. My brother has made it crystal clear that if he catches rough, wrong-side-of-the-tracks Jameson even looking at me, someone will get hurt.
That doesn’t deter me, though. I want Jameson to be my first.
And that’s why my brother can never find out what happened.
Because Jameson kissed me.
No — not kissed — he shoved me up against a wall, possessed me, and took my breath away. Then he promptly passed out in my bed, wasted.
Now I know that Jameson wants me. I may be off limits because of my brother, but that kiss is branded in my mind.
I need another taste of Jameson.
I crave his brutal touch. Pinned against the wall, gasping at the feel of his body pressed against mine, crying out in pleasure and pain while he gives me everything I’ve dreamed about.
As long as my brother doesn’t catch on, Jameson might just give me exactly what I want… and a whole hell of a lot more.

 

Author Bio
Vivian likes to write about troubled, deeply flawed alpha males and the fiery, kick-ass women who bring them to their knees.
Vivian’s lasting motto in romance is a quote from a favorite song: “Soulmates never die.”

Everyone should have a chance at forever . . .

Twenty-Five Years. That’s how long Odette Peterson called Austin Andrews her best friend. Until he let his mouth ruin it—in more ways than one.

Five Minutes. That’s all it took for their friendship to fall apart, leaving her heart a little broken and her life a little emptier.

One Hour. That’s the amount of time she agrees to give him to try and find his way back into her good graces. Not that she thinks for even one minute that it might work.

It won’t, because . . .

Forever. That’s what Odette’s looking for. Someone to spend her life with; someone who’ll see her as more than just one of the guys. And there’s not a thing Austin can do to stop her.

Except maybe tell her that he loves her . . .

Cover Reveal!! HANDLE WITH CARE by Nina Croft

“Heat, heart and plenty of happy sighs.”

— Avery Flynn, USA Today bestselling author

Handle with Care, an all-new romantic standalone from Nina Croft is coming July 30th, and we have the gorgeous new cover!

2018-0682 Nina Croft b01

Synopsis

What if all you want is the one thing you can’t have?

First grade teacher Emily Towson always does the right thing. The sensible thing. But in her dreams, she does bad, bad things with the town’s baddest boy: Tanner O’Connor. But when he sells her grandmother a Harley, fantasy is about to meet a dose of reality.

And then he goes and calls her “sensible”…

Tanner can’t believe sweet Emily is standing in his shop. Yelling and waving her hands and looking so god damn sexy he’s having trouble focusing. He’d spent two hard years in prison, with only the thought of this “good girl” to keep him sane.

He really should send her away…

Before either one thinks though, they’re naked and making memories on his tool bench with apparently the oldest condom in history. Now Tanner’s managed to knock-up the town’s “good girl” and she’s going to lose her job over some stupid “morality clause” if he doesn’t step up.

But can this bad boy teach his good girl they’re perfect for each other in time?

About Nina:

Growing up in the cold, wet, north of England, Nina Croft spent a lot of time huddled under the blankets dreaming of faraway sunnier places and ponies. When she discovered both could be found between the covers of a book, her life changed forever.

At the age of eighteen, in an attempt to turn dreams into reality, she headed south in search of the sun. She quickly picked up the perfect husband along the way, and developed a taste for red wine and holidays in warm places.

Soon holidays weren’t enough, and together they volunteered to work in Africa where they both discovered a love of traveling and a dislike of 9-5 work. Afterward they spent a number of years travelling (whenever possible) intermingled with working (whenever the money ran out.) Eventually they stumbled upon a remote area in the mountains of southern Spain where they bought the small almond farm they now call home.

No electricity, no neighbors, no chocolate shops, but on the plus side, stunning scenery, a vineyard to make her own red wine, and far enough away from anywhere to satisfy Nina’s hermit tendencies. She shares the farm with her husband, and an ever increasing number of animals, including Piggles, a three-legged Vietnamese pot-bellied pig.

Nina now spends her days riding her mare Gencianna under the blue Spanish skies—sunshine and ponies. She reckons this is proof that dreams really can come true if you want them enough.

She still travels, but usually only in her imagination, and can often be found lying under a fig tree, wine in hand, plotting stories of love in faraway places.

Nina believes love can come to anyone, anytime, anywhere and her books reflect this.
