Release Blitz/Review – I Wanna Text You Up by Teagan Hunter

See My Review Below!

Title: I Wanna Text You Up
Author: Teagan Hunter
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: February 1, 2018 
When I put up a ROOMMATE WANTED poster, he was the last person on earth I thought would respond.
He was also the last person on earth I’d agree to let live with me…on purpose.
But, here we are—roommates. I’m certain we can coexist without it being awkward, and I’m determined to make it work. There will be no sexual tension building with each accidental touch, no flutters when he wears that stupid backward baseball cap, and definitely no flirting when we text back and forth.
Caleb Mills can’t be the guy for me. He’s my best friend’s ex-boyfriend.
And that would be wrong…right?

 

 

“I Wanna Text You Up was an incredibly sweet, sexy, hilarious, and highly entertaining standalone romantic comedy, and I absolutely loved it!” – Julia – *The Romance Bibliophile*

“I Wanna Text You Up was a sweet, sexy and hilariously laughable romantic comedy.” – Aurora *Whoo Gives A Hoot*

“Ms. Hunter definitely has a way with words and has easily become one of my favorite authors!” – Amanda Mann *Rabid Readers Book Blog*


 

By day I’m a freelance cover designer. By every other free moment, a writer. I’m a Missouri raised gal, but I currently live in North Carolina with my US Marine husband where I spend my days begging him for a cat. I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I’m not writing, you can find me binge-watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural and One Tree Hill. I like cold weather, buy more paperbacks than I’ll ever read, and I never say no to brownies.

My Review……

This is the first book I have read by Teagan Hunter, but it won’t be my last!

This book is a perfect example of what a romantic comedy should be! I love any book that makes me laugh out loud and then add romance and BAM! I am hooked!

This story of Zoe and Caleb is such a fun journey!  Their texting is hilarious and their in person interactions are even better!

Zoe is my kind of gal! She is her own person with her own needs and wants and isn’t afraid to tell it like it is! I love the fact that she is a well adjusted adopted gal and you are swamped with a sad backstory about it! She loves her family and they love her! I like the fact that she sticks with the “Girl Code” until she can talk to her best friend and get the closure she needs to move on with her relationship with Caleb.

Oh my me, Caleb…Such a charmer! It really moved me how he tried to keep bring his family into a better place and they just used and abused him.  He and Zoe had the perfect relationship.

This story is fast paced, romantic and a bit steamy but it doesn’t go overboard, I like how it focused on the getting to know each other and taking their time until they moved to the physical! Sometimes you need that slow build up, or anticipation as Caleb said.

Thank you for your words! I can’t wait to go back and read about Delia and Zach!

Title: Awkward.
Author: Lily Kate
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 30, 2018
Blurb
Ladies,
I know how things
look from the outside. I’m rich. I’m a successful surgeon. I’m handsome. I
should have women lining up from here to New Jersey clawing for space in my
bed, but there’s one huge catch.
I’m f*cking
awkward.
Every time I get a
date, I spoil it. Asked if she’s pregnant? Check. Forgot her name? Check.
Bought a meat lover’s pizza for my vegan girlfriend? Check, check, check.
This is why my best
friend, romance fanatic Allie Jenkins, has declared that she’s swooping in to
save the day. She’s prepared a list of required reading straight from The
Ripped Bodice, and I’m supposed to take notes, learn from the best, and put
that shit into action. After all, practice makes perfect, right? 
Wrong.

My Review…

This is the first story I have read by Lily Kate, however it won’t be my last!

Awkward was a fantastic story!

This story of Jack Darcy (as a huge Jane Austen fan, I loved this!) and Allie Jenkins is the perfect friends to lovers story!

Allie is a phenomenal heroine! She is quirky, she is unapologetic (unless she needs to be) and she loves her best friend! She is so funny “I just learned that my best friend, my oldest friend, my Chinese-food-eating-partner-in-crime might be moving to the penis of America. I am allowed a few tears.” She is everything!

Jack is perfection! He is so adorably awkward. He loves his best friend and doesn’t know how to move forward with it! His inner dialogue is funny and sarcastic “Or a thump. You know, something manlier than a flutter. Or maybe it’s heartburn.”

I loved the alternate POV’s and Lily really nails both parts with excellence. This struggle for both Jack and Allie was real, it was honest and it ended beautifully.

I can’t wait to see what Ms. Kate has next for her readers! Thank you for this story! I will be re-reading this one, again and again in the future!

Excerpt

 

He’s becoming really obvious.
 
The mystery man is here again, hidden in the shadows and out of clear sight, but I’m catching onto him.
 
After noticing him standing behind me the other day, the dark stranger has been appearing everywhere lately. I’m pretty sure this guy wants to get caught. Perhaps he’s been hanging nearby a lot longer and I’m just realizing it. My pulse beats wildly, the whooshing pounding in my ears as I continue watching him. This reaction isn’t from fear but rather a startling awareness of his recurring presence. I’m not scared of him, though most might be, and the need to know why snakes through my system.
 
We’ve been playing an intense game of hide-and-seek since that afternoon outside Aire Gardens almost a week ago. I’ll go somewhere—my studio, Brewed Awakenings, around campus, my apartment—and after settling in, begin searching for him. He’s always there, waiting to be spotted. Each time I find him, my belly tightens as a smile lights up my face. Discovering him out there, lingering in the background, has become something I really look forward to.
 
How didn’t I notice sooner?
 
Perhaps it’s my total inexperience with dating, and the opposite sex in general, that has me getting far too attached to these moments. I’m getting wrapped up in the fantasy of him, of what he represents. This stranger—Seek is what I’ve started calling him—is the closest thing to a boyfriend I’ve ever had. I find myself daydreaming about him, wondering who he really is, when did he find me, and most importantly—why me?
 
I press my palm flat against the cool glass and stare at him leaning against the large oak tree outside the Student Center. My thoughts are becoming more and more consumed with a guy I don’t even know—at least not really. Yet it seems like I do.

My Review…

Watch me follow…..

Well I found another author I will be stalking shortly!

This story of Ryker and Lennon is not your typical romance. It’s a bit dark and a bit twisty, but for people like me, it’s perfection!

Lennon is trying to be independent, trying to fit in, but she knows she’s a bit of an oddball and she learns to embrace it.

Ryker, oh my me, I wish I had a Ryker! From his horrible upbringing, he still became a brilliant man. A vulnerable, fragile but amazing man. And his love for Lennon is extraordinary!

Their love story is not normal, it’s crazy, it’s obsessive and it’s magnificent. Like one of my favorite movie quotes “Normal is setting on a dryer” this love story is different, its a bit odd and that makes it even more special! Who wants to be normal if it means never experiencing a love like Lennon and Ryker.

I can’t wait to read more! Thank you for your words and thank you for bringing us into your characters world!

Hostage by Skye Warren & Annika Martin
Publication Date: January 30th, 2018
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Hostage-hires.jpg

I never knew when he’d come to me. Only that he would.

I’d never even kissed a boy the night I met Stone. The night I saw him kill. The night he spared my life. That was only the beginning.

He turns up in my car again and again, dangerous and full of raw power. “Drive,” he tells me, and I have no choice. He’s a criminal with burning green eyes, invading my life and my dreams.

The police say he’s dangerously obsessed with me, but I’m the one who can’t stop thinking about him. Maybe it’s wrong to let him touch me. Maybe it’s wrong to touch him back. Maybe these twisted dates need to stop. Except he feels like the only real thing in my world of designer labels and mansions.

So I drive us under threat, until it’s hard to remember I don’t want to be there.

Until it’s too late to turn back.

HOSTAGE is a dangerous standalone romance by New York Times bestselling authors Skye Warren and Annika Martin. It’s set in the same world as PRISONER, but can read separately!

My Review…..

Oh wowza! What a story! I will never look at a rivet the same way again! (Read the story, you will understand!) I want to be a rivet!

This is the story of Stone and Brooke. Their story has so much, and it’s amazing how they come together!

Brooke is like a beautiful bird in a gilded cage.  A cage she so wants to escape from.  She tries so hard to be perfect that she becomes damaged in the most epic way.  She is fierce when she needs to be and loyal to a fault, what a true heroine should be!

Stone is so jaded and yet so innocent at the same time.  His childhood is beyond tragic and made him the person he had become, but with the love of Brooke he became more.  His vulnerabilities made me want to hug him all the more.  Such a beautiful damaged soul. The secondary characters are fantastic and are begging for their own stories! (Hint, hint…Annika? Skye? Bueller…..)

I have read books by both Annika Martin and Skye Warren, and love their work individually.  But them writing together is even better! I can’t wait to read more, I hope  to see more for the other characters and I am getting ready to dive into Abigail and Grayson’s story Prisoner

EXCERPT

Preoccupied with a text on my phone from my agent, I walk into the kitchen and suck in a breath when I come face to back with Grady. He’s standing with his hand on the refrigerator door, head leaned inside, and his back fully exposed to me. It’s broad and strong and scarred immeasurably.

I stare.

I can’t help it. The marks are a dizzying array of dark and light and ridged and smooth. And they’re undeniably burns. Goosebumps chase over my skin as I imagine the pain he must have endured when he got those. I think of his habit of wearing unbuttoned shirts but never going shirtless and the hint of scars just visible above his collar that I never could have imagined led to this roadmap to hell on his back.

A part of me instinctively wants to reach out to touch them, bring some kind of comfort. It sounds ridiculous, even to me, but that doesn’t abate the urge.

“Not pretty, huh? Get a good look while you can.” His voice is gruff as his spine stiffens and body stills, emotion woven through the words.

“Thank God not all of you is pretty. I was beginning to feel majorly insecure having to live with perfection like you,” I say off the cuff, trying to make this situation less awkward. My attempt to settle the sudden tension sparking in the air around us.

“Perfection?” he asks as he turns to face me with a smile that masks the emotion swirling in his eyes.

“Yeah. You have scars. I have mermaid thighs.”

“Mermaid thighs?” He laughs. “What in the world are you talking about?”

“Thighs that touch from the top all the way to my knees.” I shrug as if it doesn’t bug me, as if I’m not highlighting one of the insults Tara threw at me. It’s a whole lot easier to make fun of myself so long as it puts him at ease.

“Do you ever give yourself a break?”

Do you?” I ask the question, sparking a silent battle of wills as we stare at each other and wonder what to say next about the other’s insecurities. Coming up empty, I shift gears. “I think there is some type of rule about how many abs are fair for a guy to have when the rest of us are just struggling to find one of them.”

His smile rings more genuine as he steps toward me, and I step back, my hips leaning against the counter now.

“Is that so?” His voice lowers as his eyes flick to my lips and then back up. “I’m sure you have some under your shirt there.”

Why does the simple action make it seem so hard to swallow?

He takes another step.

“What are you building outside?”

“A playroom.”

A nervous chuckle falls from my lips as I think of all of the versions of playrooms I’ve read about in my romance books. My cheeks stain red as I imagine Grady with a flogger in one hand standing beside a St. Andrew’s Cross.

“A playroom?”

“Yeah.” He takes a step closer so we’re breathing the same air, his voice husky enough to cause every part of my body to grow alert. “A playroom. You know . . . a pool table. Foosball. A real man cave.”

I exhale a shaky sigh, suddenly more than aware that he’s so close, shirtless, sweaty, and smelling like sun and soap mixed together. But it’s his eyes that make my thoughts falter. There’s an intensity to them I don’t expect from the perpetually cheerful Grady Malone.

“Ah, that kind of playroom . . .” But my words trail off as he steps even closer and braces his hands on the counter on either side of me. I can hear his intake of breath. The music floating in from outside. The pound of my pulse in my ears.

“Hey, Dyl?”

“Yes?” Our eyes hold, my lips fall lax.

“I need you to open up.”

What?” I question as his hand brushes against my hip and his fingers pull on the drawer handle I’m standing in front of.

“I need the bottle opener. You’re standing in front of the drawer it’s in.” His lips spread into a full-fledged grin as I scramble away from the counter and, of course, run smack dab into the hardness, all six foot plus of him.

And then I rebound off him again in a flustered state that has him laughing and me stuttering. “Sorry. I wasn’t—I didn’t . . .” His arms hold on to my biceps to steady me, which prompts me to look up and meet his eyes.

“We need to stop meeting like this,” he murmurs, the heat of his breath hitting my lips.

“We do.” Brilliant, Dylan. Freaking brilliant response. “I’ve gotta . . . I’ve gotta get back to . . . to writing.”

My Review…..

 

FEAR – Face Everything And Rise…..

Wow, that quote totally sums up this brilliant story from K. Bromberg!

This story of Dylan and Grady is just wow, just everything!

Dylan is my spirit animal, I swear! She has such issues, and it takes someone like Grady to see past them to the beautiful person she is.  I love how she was described in the book, no petite gal here! One of my fave quotes from the book “I have mermaid thighs! Thighs that touch from the top all the way to my knees!” Gotta give some love to us curvy girls!

Grady, oh swoon! Grady carries his own scars and issues and you can feel his guilt and shame and you just want to love on him all the harder for it!

There is laughter in this story, I mean come on Petunia!! (You’ll figure this out when you read it!) There are tears, there is a firetruck worth of steaminess and there is love, such beautiful love!

K. Bromberg is a fantastic author and I remember correctly, (I double checked on Passionflix) she has some books that are going to made into movies! Thank you for your wonderful stories!

Happy Release Day/Review – Inferno Part 2 by T.K. Leigh

See My Review Below!

 

 

Part two in the Sexy and Suspenseful Inferno series by T.K. Leigh is NOW LIVE!!

 

 

Synopsis

A stolen glance across a darkened restaurant. A kiss under the Italian moon. A proposition I never would have made in my former life. Our story began just like all fairy tales do…once upon a time.

Once upon a time, a mysterious, passionate man opened my eyes to things I’d been blind to, my heart to feelings I never thought imaginable, my mind to endless possibilities.

Once upon a time, I experienced something I didn’t think existed in real life.

Once upon a time, I learned how to fly.

Little did I know it was with broken wings. Ones that were irreparable after a lifetime of being caged.

How can I love a man who would lie to me so recklessly?
How can I give him my heart when experience tells me to keep it guarded?
How can we have a future when he’s still tormented by his past?

The Bible teaches us that “Love is patient. Love is kind.”

Now I know that love is a farce, a sham, the two of us merely players in its cruel pantomime. For ours isn’t a love story with a happy ending. Ours is a tragic love. The kind of love that leaves a permanent scar on your heart. The kind of love you never get over.

The kind of love that defies all logic.

Inferno: Part 2 is the second installment in T.K. Leigh’s spellbinding Inferno Series. Recommended for mature readers due to strong language and explicit sexual situations.

My Review!

Gaaahhh! This second installment of this series is fantastic!

It’s starts right where part one ends and boy does it start with a showdown!

This story is more moving, we get more emotion with both Dante and Eleanor as they explore their feelings for one another.  Their are twists and turns and we get to find out more about how fate plays a part in their love story!

And of course we are left with another cliffhanger, just as a good series should! We readers are left wanting more, more, more!

This series is so good! I can’t wait to see what is coming next for this couple!

Release Day/Review – Living Out Loud by Staci Hart

See My Review Below!

LIVING OUT LOUD, the next in Staci Hart’s Austen Series, is LIVE! I adored this modern love story inspired by Jane Austen’s Sense & Sensibility. Everything about this book had me smiling and swooning! Hart takes us back to the world of Wasted Words and gives us a love story you will not soon forget!

 

Living Out Loud
Staci Hart
Publication Date: February 1, 2018
Cover Photo: Perrywinkle Photography
Cover Design: QuirkyBird Designs

When Annie Daschle arrives in New York City, the only thing she can control is her list.

Not her father’s death or the loss of her home. Not the hole in her heart or the defective valve that’s dictated so much of her life. But she can put pen to paper to make a list of all the ways she can live out loud, just like her dad would have wanted.

See the city from the top of the Empire State Building: Check.
Eat hot dogs on the steps of The Met: Check.
Stand in the middle of Times Square: Check.
Get a job at Wasted Words: Check.

Two things not on her list: Greg Brandon and Will Bailey. And just like that, she finds herself caught in the middle of something she can’t find her way out of, with no clear answers and no rules.

List or no list, she realizes she can’t control anything at all, not even her heart.
Not the decisions it makes, and not the moment it stops.

*Standalone contemporary romance Inspired by Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility.*

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

My Review…

Inspired by Jane Austen’s Sense & Sensibility…..

I first fell in love with Staci Hart’s work when I read With a Twist. And I have been loving her stories ever since.

Can I say, without getting yelled at, that I loved Living Out Loud just as much as I love Jane Austen’s work? Because I do! This adaptation is fabulous!

This story of Annie and Greg is so lovely.  I like how Staci went with the impulsive middle sister, and waiting to give Elle her story! I really enjoyed Annie’s wide eyed innocence and Greg being with her through it all.  Annie was funny, she was sweet and yet she was oh so naive.  I think the best line was “But a girl like you needs no wishes, for she eats wishes for breakfast and dreams for lunch”  whew, loved that line!

Greg was perfect, he was willing to give up his happiness to support Annie’s. He was swoony, he was sweet and that touch of alpha was spot on.  His inner turmoil about his feelings towards Annie was moving and his self-sacrifice was admirable.  He is a true friend in the best sense.

I also enjoyed seeing past characters from her stories, I have missed them and it was good reading about them, even it’s just a small bit!

I cannot wait for Elle story! Thank you for your words and stories Staci! The world you create in your books is amazing!
