Up in Smoke, an all-new gritty standalone romance by T.M. Frazier is coming February 19th, 2018!

Synopsis

I’m a man without a conscience.

I deal in murder and mayhem.

I’m the best at what I do.

Frankie Helburn is supposed to be an easy job.

A means to flush her father out of hiding.

Simple.

Except there isn’t anything simple about Frankie or the secrets she’s keeping.

She’s stubborn as hell and the sexiest god damn thing I have ever seen, sending dark, dirty animalistic desire coursing through my veins.

She’s cocaine with legs. A f*cking addiction that makes me question things I’ve never questioned before. Want things I’ve never wanted before.

I might have her, but she isn’t mine to keep.

If her father doesn’t show his face, she will be mine.

To KILL.

Happy Release Day and Review! The Schemer by Avery Flynn

Winning is Everything…..

This is the second book I have read by Avery and the latest installment in her series with The Negotiator and The Charmer (which I was lucky to read!)

This book was fantastic! It was everything a romantic comedy should be!

Everly, oh Everly! If I ever decide to grow up, I want to be just like her! She is independent, she is fierce (Could give Sasha a run for her money!) she takes no prisoners and yet she wears her heart on her sleeve. Because of some bad history has some vulnerability which is totally understandable! She is so strong when she has to be, but needs a soft place to fall.

Tyler is the schemer, he tries so hard to rise above his upbringing that he fails to see what is right in front of him. He has been burned bad in his past and unfortunately it dictates his future dealings. He need someone like Everly to keep him guessing and see that your past doesn’t have to control your future.

The chemistry between Everly and Tyler is amazing and so, so hot! Even when Tyler puts his foot in his mouth (which he does repeatedly) Everly calls him on his crap every time and that what is needed!

I am so glad I was able to read another fantastic story by Avery! Thank you for your words and cannot wait to read more from you!

 Icing on the Cake

by Ann Marie Walker
Publication Date: January 30, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | iBooks

Notting Hill meets The Prince & Me in Icing on the Cake, the second standalone laugh-out-loud romance in Ann Marie Walker’s Wild Wedding series

Cassandra Miller doesn’t have time for men. She’s far too busy trying to open a cupcake shop with her silent partner and best friend, not to mention catering her brother’s wedding. And let’s face it, it’s not like Prince Charming is going to stroll into the bakery and sweep her off her feet.

Henry has been a prince his entire life but for one wild wedding he wants to be nothing more than an “Average Joe”, or in this instance, “Average Hank”. However, when a case of mistaken identity and a batch of burned cupcakes ends in a night of passion, Cassie and Hank must decide if theirs is a recipe for disaster or the makings of true romance.

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!

Release Boost/Review – Awkward by Lily Kate

See My Review Below!

 

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!

Creep. Freak. Crazy
Eyes.
I’ve heard it all.
Over the years,
they’ve slammed me with every demeaning name in the book. 
Their taunts warped
me like a steady stream of poison.
Anger replaced
anxiety as I started believing the cruelty spat my way. 
Until she showed up
and changed everything. 
Lennon Bennett is
pure innocence—warm sunshine breaking apart my stormy existence. 
She’s everything
good and maybe I can be too. 
For her. With her.
Because of her.
Lennon doesn’t know
I’m beckoned closer with each breath. She isn’t aware that I’m completely
consumed with her. 
It’s become my sole
purpose to protect her, by any means necessary. 
But if she
discovers the depth of my obsession, it will be the end of me.
So, I remain in the
shadows.
Waiting. Watching.
Wanting. 
She’ll be my first.
My last. My only.
Watch Me Follow is
a TOTAL standalone.

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!
