See My Review Below!!

 

Title: Distorted Love
Duet: Dark Intentions #1
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: Romance Suspense
Release Date: March 20, 2018
I loved him from the age of sixteen.

Hated him from the age of eighteen.

He disappeared at the age of nineteen.

We started off as enemies, then fast became lovers.

But our story isn’t a happily ever after.

It was a story of a king and a peasant. Can you guess which I was?

I knew we weren’t meant to be.

You see, he fell in love with her first. He loved me last.

I’m not someone’s second choice.

Not even for the boy who stole my heart.

I’m someone’s first.

Now, I just have to remember that.

My Review…

Wow….I am still digesting this story….

Distorted Love is the story of Saskia (Barbie) and Ryken, and what a twisted story it is!

I really am a closet dark romance fan and this story checks all the right boxes!

Saskia is the quintessential hardscrabble girl. She has had a craptacular life but she has a quiet strength to her.  She tries to be in a happier place, tries to find a “normal” love but she is always drawn to Ryken.

Oh Ryken, he tries so hard to rise above his legacy, he has the heart his father doesn’t.  He is pulled in so many different directions and he tries to make the right choices, even when they hurt the ones he loves most.

I liked the style and speed of the story, the “confessionals” really made me think! I liked the bit of mystery.  And finally, what a helluva cliffhanger, absolutely loved it! I cannot wait to get my hands on the conclusion!!

This is the first story I have read by this author, but it won’t be my last! Well done!

Title: Breakaway
Author: A.M. Johnson
Genre: Sports Romance
 Release Date: March 15, 2018
Blurb
As Tampa Bay’s star center, Mark Carmelo’s life was hockey, and after a
bitter and public break up, all he wanted to do was focus on the game.  
Until he saw her.
The one that got away.
The one he thought he’d never see again.
For thirteen years, Stevie West drowned in her lackluster life.
Recently divorced from her “roommate” with passionless benefits, she was ready
to start over. On her own.
Until she ran into him.  
The same man she’d met one year ago.
The temptation that had finally given her the courage to find herself
again.  
When lightning strikes twice, there’s no way to deny the chemistry it
creates.
But with both of them still nursing old wounds, Mark and Stevie will
have to find a way around the other’s defenses, a way to breakaway and score
the one thing they never expected… love.

This book! Amazing! Proud to be a part of this blog tour!! Marriage Of Inconvenience by Penny Reid

See my review here!!

Marriage of Inconvenience, an all new romantic comedy standalone in the USA Today bestselling, Knitting in the City Series by Penny Reid, is available NOW!

MOI copy

There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson. . . and yes, she is *that* Kathleen Tyson): 1) She’s determined to make good decisions, 2) She must get married ASAP, and 3) She knows how to knit.

Being a billionaire heiress isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family’s legacy. But now, Kat’s silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy.

Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O’Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity—and heart—all in one piece.

Except, what happens when Dan O’Malley isn’t as indifferent—or as trustworthy—as she thought?

Excerpt:

Staring at his chin, because I couldn’t quite lift my eyes any higher, I cleared my throat. “Should we get ready for bed?”

“Sure,” he said, his voice a rumble. Dan’s eyes were on me, I felt the weight of them.

My hands came to the hem of my skirt and I hesitated, feeling winded for some reason. Sneaking a glance at him, I immediately wished I hadn’t. His gaze was watchful, but it was also unmistakably hot in a way that seemed at once both avaricious and accusatory. The vice tightened around my lungs.

Kiss him! Just freaking kiss him! You want numbered steps? Fine. You kiss him- check. He kisses you back- check. Then you make out- check. Check the boxes.

I licked my lips, balling my hands into fists at my sides again, preparing to follow my hasty list.

But then he said, “Undress me.”

My breath caught. On instinct, my eyes lifted and collided with his in much the same way our bodies had collided at the top of the stairs just moments ago. Jarring. Startling. Thrilling. This time I couldn’t look away because this time I was falling. He made no move to catch me.

“What? What did you say?”

His eyes narrowed, which served only to increase the intensity of his gaze from smolder to inferno. “Take my clothes off.”

I stared at him, licking my lips again, and shaking my head. That wasn’t one of my steps.

Lifting my chin, I moved to kiss him. He leaned to the side, evading me even as his eyes dropped to my mouth.

“Take off my shirt and I’ll give you a kiss.” He’d used his naughty-secret voice.

An explosion of heat erupted in my belly, and now I was hot all over. I couldn’t figure out if the heat was embarrassment or arousal or both.

He didn’t give me a chance to figure it out. His hands lifted and he undid his cuffs; then they moved to the top button of his shirt.

“You better take over,” he said darkly, “or else you’re not getting that kiss.”

I’m not a good man, and I’ve never pretended to be. I don’t believe in goodness or God or any happy ending that isn’t paid for in advance.

What do I believe in? Money. Sex. Macallan 18.

They have words for men like me—playboy. Womanizer. Skirt chaser.

My brother used to be a priest, and he only has one word for me.

Sinner.

 

***Sinner is a standalone companion to Priest about Father Bell’s brother Sean. You do not have to read Priest or Midnight Mass to read Sinner.***

 

EXCERPT

“Zenny,” I mumble against her lips, some valiant part of me recognizing that this is far, far beyond the kiss she asked for, and also recognizing that I’m going to come all over the inside of my Hugo Boss suit pants if she keeps it up. Even through the clothes, I can feel her heat, her shameless rolls hinting at where she goes soft and wet between her legs.

Fuck, I want to see it. I want to see her pussy. It’s suddenly all I can think about, all I can want or crave, just one glimpse, just a peek.

“I want to see your cunt,” I say hoarsely, lifting my head.

“My…cunt?” She says the word like she’s never said it out loud before.

“Yeah.” My voice is so ragged right now, so desperate, and fuck, I’ve never felt this frantic before. Like I’ll actually combust if I don’t get this one thing, this one small sight of her secret place.

She lets out a shaky breath, her hand dropping from my lapel to her skirt, which she slowly rucks up to her waist as I devour her lips once more, as I bury my face in her neck and kiss every sliver of skin exposed above her collar. I bite at her ear, at her jaw, my hand finding hers as it pulls her skirt up, so that I’m helping her do it, that we’re doing it together, this forbidden act, this forbidden revelation.

Her forbidden body.

That word, forbidden, spikes through my mind, bringing with it equal spikes of lust and fear. Because yes, it’s fucking hot that I shouldn’t be kissing her, I shouldn’t be begging to see her most secret place, my hand shouldn’t be covering hers as it slides up her thigh—but it’s also bad. Bad even for Sean Bell.

Bad, bad, bad.

My Review…

Gahhh! I have to be honest with you all, I have heard such great things about Sierra and I even have American Queen on my Kindle, waiting to be read, and I have not yet!! This is the first book I have read by this fabulous author and I will definitely be going back for more!

I haven’t read Priest or Midnight Mass, but it’s OK! She says it’s a stand alone and going in fresh I can say it totally is!

This story of Sean & Zenobia (Zenny & for a hot minute, Mary) is magnificent.

The magical way that Sierra weaves theology, love & sex is so fresh and just wow! You can feel the guilt and the passion in the way that Sean deals with his beliefs. You embrace Zenny’s innocence and applaud her faith, her maturity and her strength.  The trust that she has in Sean is beautiful.

I laughed at some parts and ugly cried at others! You get all the feels from this story.  All. The. Feels! I love how this story made me take a look at my own beliefs and truths and see that it’s OK to feel that way! Like Sean, you can struggle and rage and also love and feel comfort.

Finally, I really liked the POV of this story, it made it more realistic for me.  Thank you for your words Sierra! You have a new fan (stalker… 🙂 it’s relative). For the readers of this, get this book, get ALL of her books, I have a feeling they are just a phenomenal as Sinner!

So Excited for This!! The End Zone by LJ Shen

Release Date: April 1st

Designer: Letitia Hasser at RBA Designs

Photographer: Rafael Catala

Model: Jorge Del Rio

Synopsis

Jolie Louis is a smart girl.

She knows that her best friend, Sage Poirier, is a bad idea.

He’s a walking, talking cliché. The Adonis quarterback with the bulging biceps and harem of fangirls trailing behind him on campus like a stench you can’t get rid of.

Sadly, it is also the very reason she can’t seem to stay away from him.

No, wait. That’s not fair. They’re also roommates, at least until May, when they graduate from college.

Jolie is already straddling the line between friendship and more when Sage comes to her with an offer she cannot refuse: be his fake girlfriend and live for free for the rest of the semester.

She tells herself that she can handle it.

He’s just the boy she saved ten years ago, right?

Wrong. So very wrong.

He is a man now, and she is his captive

Heart, body, and soul…

Just Because this book is WOW! Possessive by Willow Winters

See My Review here!

Title: Possessive
Author: Willow Winters
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: March 13, 2018

Blurb

 

From USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters, comes a provocative, standalone, contemporary romance.

 

 
Some men are born with a black heart and a tainted soul. 

 

I never liked to admit it back then; I thought I could outrun who I am and lie
to myself.
But I accept the truth now.
It’s in my blood and in my bones. In every impure thought and desire.
I tried to leave. To do the right thing and walk away from my past.
But then she came back into my life.
Stumbling towards me and looking up at me as if I’m the one she’s been looking
for all this time.
As if I could be her savior and take her pain away.

 

If only she knew. 

 

 

She turns me into what I hate most about myself.
Selfish, ruthless, possessive.
I tried to be a good man. To be cold and distant and warn her away.
She should have taken the hint and run.
She didn’t…
And now she’s mine.
