Technically Married_FINAL!

BLURB

Their love always sizzled but after a misunderstanding, it suddenly fizzled. What drove them apart might just be what brings them back together again.

Max is a good guy. He’s rich, handsome, smart and normal. Things are getting pretty serious between us but there’s a problem—technically, I’m already married to a starving artist rock star wannabe.

When my former best friend invited me to her celebrity bridal shower, I went mainly out of curiosity. When she asked me to be her maid of honor though, I wanted to run for the hills. If I didn’t need my estranged husband to sign those divorce papers, I actually would have.

Instead of giving me a divorce, he gave me something else. The truth about the ending of our marriage.

Suddenly, my life with Max doesn’t seem so appealing. The rock star I had run from for all those years is suddenly the man who’s awakened something in me—something I thought had died a long time ago. And damnit, it feels frickin’ amazing!

EXCERPT

“Hi, it’s me, Jay Marrow. You might remember that little dance I did earlier while trying to fish out the rings from my jacket. Well, I’m happy to say that my dancing days are behind me.” Everyone laughed at this. He was a natural on stage. Always had been. “It’s my first time being a best man and I have to be honest, I didn’t realize I had to give a speech.” The crowd laughed again. “I’m serious.” Even more laughter. “I do have a song for the couple, though.”

He strummed a few chords to warm up then began plucking the strings. His voice came out in the most beautifully haunting way. He sang the sweetest, saddest love song I had ever heard about a couple finding their destiny.

A stormy sky and an angry sea

Couldn’t keep you away from me

When all is said and done

You’ll still be the one

There wasn’t a dry eye in the place—including mine—as he sang. He even got a standing ovation.

“Okay, now da matron ov honor,” Greta announced after Jay had left the stage.

Shiiiiit.

I grabbed a bottle of wine as I made my way to the stage. I had no idea what I was going to say but whatever, I can wing it. How hard could it be to give a speech? Pretty hard, because when I took the microphone and looked out into the sea of people, I froze.

N. Franko is a reader of all things funny, romantic, magic, scary, dirty or nerdy-basically anything that’s words on a page.

A huge fan of authors like Chuck Palahniuk and Sophie Kinsella, she spent much of her days daydreaming of being an author while failing hard as a reporter and production artist for a small town newspaper before taking the plunge and writing her first book, Technically Scripted.

When she’s not writing, she’s playing drums in a noisy synth-pop band with her rock star husband, annoyingly taking pictures of everything, drinking coffee or watching an obscene amount of television.

Double Cover Reveal!! The Upside of Falling & The Downside of Love by Meghan Quinn

I absolutely cannot wait for this!!

 

 

 

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.

Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.

My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.

I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.

And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination.

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.

One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful.

Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.

Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single incident, I fly off course.

THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVE – July 5th

 

Blurb to come after the release of THE UPSIDE OF FALLING

 

GOODREADS: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40193307-the-downside-of-love

 

 

 

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Cover Reveal!! So Pretty!! Happy Hour by Piper Rayne

Happy Hour, an all-new hilarious enemies to lovers romance from dynamic duo Piper Rayne will be here July 12th!

PRHappyHourBookCover5x8_BW_300.jpg

Happy Hour by Piper Rayne

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing Date: July 12th, 2018

Cover Designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA Designs

The perfect man for her is the one she hates most. #gofigure

Dating is hard.

Dating in your thirties is even harder.

Dating in Chicago is harder still.

I haven’t given up on finding my happily-ever-after, but in the age of swiping right and Netflix and chill, I’m wondering if everything is as temporary as my marriage turned out to be.

Truth is, there is one guy I can’t get my mind off of.

Roarke Baldwin has salt and pepper hair I’ve dreamed of running my hands through and I’m pretty sure that if I checked he really does have a six pack of abs underneath his suit. And I’ve always wondered what that stubble on his face would feel like between my thighs.

The problem? He’s the one man I hate more than my ex-husband…

His divorce attorney.

Check Out My Review For This Amazing Book Here!!!

PRAfternoonDelightBookCover5x8_MEDIUMAfternoon Delight, the next standalone in the romantic and hilarious Charity Case Series by Piper Rayne is available now!

The perfect man for me is the one who broke my heart.

#thanksbutnothanks

Once bitten.

Twice shy.

Yeah, I wish.

I’m on a mission to find myself a nice, solid, respectable man. The only problem is nice, solid, and respectable comes in a meh package and is B-O-R-I-N-G as hell.

It’s been established. I have one type. Bad Boy. I tried the other flavors, I really did. But there’s nothing like the allure of a man who takes what he wants without apology.

As if my love life isn’t dramatic enough, Dean Bennett walks into my life again thinking he’s going to win me back with his charm and charisma. He might come in a different package, but under that expensive suit he’s still the same cocky, arrogant, pompous prick who only cares about numero uno.

I’m not that naïve young girl anymore so I have to ignore the fact that the way he looks at me practically sets my panties on fire.

Everyone deserves a second chance to right a wrong. The problem? He’s not just an ex-boyfriend…

He’s my ex-husband.

Excerpt

Walking through the revolving door, I’m greeted by a security desk before I can access the elevators. Shit. I should message Glen again to say I’m going to be even later than I expected.

I approach the tall man who looks as annoyed as me for being here on a Friday night. “Hello, I need to head to” —I glance at the envelope— “Heiberman and Lipe Law Firm.”

He taps a few keys. “I think they’re closed already.” His face is void of any emotion.

“Can you tell me if there’s a…” my eyes glance to the folder again. “Mr. Bennett?” The last name causes my stomach to gurgle.

“Let me call up.” He presses some buttons on the phone, listens for a second and then hangs up. “No one is answering.”

I lean over the counter, splashing on my please eat out of my hand smile. “It’s Friday. You want to go home. I want to go home. I promised my boss that I’d get these on the desk of Mr. Bennett.” I cough, bile rising up my throat with the mention of the name. Victoria is really going to have to take care of this in the future. “Can I please just go up to their floor and see if their door is unlocked?”

He shakes his head, giving me a look I’m way too familiar with, silently asking if I’m crazy.

“What can I do?” I ask. “Money? A date?” I look at his left hand. “No. Are you a fan of winter sports?” I’ll totally pull Skylar into this. “My cousin is a Winter Classics skier and her fiancé—” A large palm lands in front of my face.

“Give me your name.” His fingers position on the keyboard.

“Chelsea… Chelsea Walsh.”

He types my name in, and I smile when he pulls a visitor badge out.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you.” I take it from his hand and put it over my head.

“If no one is up there, they have a drop box beside their door. You can leave your package there.”

I thank him again and walk steadily to the elevators, dodging people desperate to start their weekend.

I end up riding the elevator by myself to the thirty-third floor. The elevator doors ding open and I file out, my head swiveling right and then left. Spotting the door with Heiberman and Lipe Law Firm, I head over to it to find a list of the names of all the associates and thankfully there’s Bennett second from the top.

Hold on Glen, I’m almost on my way.

My hand pulls on the frosted glass door and it must be my lucky day because it opens.

I step into the darkened reception area. Looking around, I find no one. Heading down a hallway, my eyes zero in on the names on the doors while peeking my head into vacant offices. Finally, after passing the conference room, I see the last name Bennett and peek my head inside to find it empty with the light on. Hopefully that means he’s in the bathroom or something.

I pull out my cell phone, seeing Glen has messaged me back, but instead of responding to his I shoot one off to my boss Hannah.

Me: Mr. Bennett isn’t here. Can I drop the envelope on his desk?

Hannah as usual, replies instantly.

Hannah: Sure. Just leave it somewhere he’ll see it first thing on Monday.

Me: Got it.

I drop my cell phone back into my purse and slowly walk across the room and place the envelope on the chair. As I straighten up, I notice a baseball sitting next to the keyboard like someone had been playing with it and just set it down.

My jaw drops and my gaze scatters across every surface, spinning around investigating each piece of art, photos, anything I can find to tell me this isn’t…

Then as though I hadn’t breathed the entire time I’ve been in this office, the smell of him hits my nostrils. The once familiar scent of the ocean breeze, his deodorant and fresh linen from his clothes. He never was a cologne guy.

Other than a picture of a dog on the table behind his desk, it’s filled with baseball memorabilia of the Cubs. A die-hard Cub’s fan certificate is framed and on display, so others know he didn’t jump on the bandwagon two years ago when they won the World Series. It’s proof that his family has borne the Cubbie fever for generations.

“Do you make it a habit of sneaking into people’s offices?” His voice is coy and flirtatious.

I squeeze my eyes shut then grip the edge of the desk before my knees give out. Shivers run up and down my spine.

Crazy train. All aboard!

“You can at least show your face,” he says, continuing his usual play. “I promise I don’t bite.”

“Unless I want you to.” I spin around, my knuckles white as they tighten on the edge of the desk.

Now it’s his jaw that slackens as he realizes his ex-wife is standing in the middle of his office.

Happy Release Day & Review – Rescuing Broken by Gina Azzi

See My Review Below!!

Title: Rescuing Broken
Series: The Kane Brothers #1
Author: Gina Azzi
Genre: Contemporary Military Romance

Release Date: June 6, 2018
Blurb
He thought
he protected her future. But she never escaped her past.
I enlisted
so Evie could have the future she deserved. She was smart and sweet and
confident; I knew she would change the world. Until I returned seven years
later to discover she’s never left. And she’s not the same girl I kissed
good-bye.
Heartbroken
over Jax, I went to my last high school party for closure. In one instant, my
dreams evaporated and everything I thought I knew crumbled. Helpless to move
forward, I watched the years pass.
Now he’s
back. But I’m too broken for second chances. I’m too broken for him.

AMAZON US / UK / CA / AU
Excerpt
I can’t believe it’s her. Even with her back to
me, I can tell. I know the outline of her body, the way her dark hair falls
around her shoulders, the delicate curve of her neck. Eons could pass, and
still I would know her.
My eyes narrow at her thin frame, note the way
her shoulders poke through the fabric of her shirt. She turns toward me then
and I realize her skin is two shades too pale and a heavy tiredness hugs are
eyes. She’s my Maywood, but not.
I feel bulldozed. As if the universe is playing
a masterful trick on me. Is it really her? So much time and space are between
us; we’re different people than we once were, and still it’s as if I’m
transported back to high school, walking onto the football field. And instead
of thinking about the next play, I’m trying to figure out how to approach and
impress the beautiful girl that is so far out of my league, a ninety-yard Hail
Mary couldn’t bring her closer.
Her gaze sweeps over me suddenly, her eyes
meeting mine as I stand, my focus zeroed in on her.
She freezes, her shoulders stiffening.
“You sure about this, Jax?”
I take another step, walking toward her. A
flicker of uncertainty in her deep blue eyes has me pausing for just a second.
Her face is impassive as she looks away. If it weren’t for the clenching of her
hands and her tight grip on the underside of the bar, I wouldn’t think I
affected her at all.
But I know I do.
I always have.

My Review…

Wow, I am so glad that I had the opportunity to read this story! This is the first book by Gina Azzi that I have had the pleasure to read.  Also this is the first story in the Kane Brothers series, so I am extra excited about that!

This story is about Evie and Jax and how they navigate their way through the figurative land mines in the years that separated them, the things they experienced while they were apart and the love that is still there.  Even after everything that has happened to the both of them.

Evie has such a bright future ahead of her, she is confident in her future and her love for Jax.  Then things happen, things that change her. Gina reveals it slowly through the story, you think you have it figured out but then there is a twist you won’t see coming and it floors you even more. Bravo for that.

Jaxon has loved Evie since high school, he doesn’t want to hold her back so he makes choices of his own that affect the both of them in the future.  He too has dealt with terrible pain and loss.  Coming home he finds Evie, but not the same Evie that he left.

I really empathized with this story, I am an Army vet, my husband is a combat Army vet and has PTSD so I live with it everyday.  They way that Gina describes it is spot on and until you have lived with it or know someone who has it, you can never truly understand.  So thank you for portraying PTSD honestly.

The secondary characters are phenomenal and I cannot wait to read more about them in future books!

Well done Ms. Azzi!
