Happy Release Day & Review – Only You by Melanie Harlow

See My Review Below…

 

Only You, an all-new sexy and emotional standalone from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is LIVE!

MHOnlyYouBookCover5x8_BW_300.jpg

Nate Pearson is ridiculously handsome and wears the hell out of a suit and tie, but I’ve seen the parade of beautiful women leaving his apartment across the hall—a different one every time—and I want no part of it. When it comes to romance, I’m looking for something real, something that will last: the happily ever after.

As a divorce attorney, he loves to tell me there’s no such thing.

As a wedding planner, I choose to disagree.

We disagree on almost everything, in fact. Everything except James Bond. The only time we really get along is when we’re watching 007 flicks together, and I’ll admit—he has rescued me from a disaster or five. So when one of the baton twirlers from his parade leaves a baby girl at his door with a note that says “I’ll come back for her” and he begs me for help, I can’t turn him down.

But it’s a mistake.

Because watching him with his daughter, I start to see another side of Nate, a side that has my breath coming faster, my body craving his, my heart longing for him to change his mind about love and tell me there’s a chance for us.

I don’t want to be just another girl leaving his apartment in the morning.

I want to be the one he asks to stay.

About Melanie:

 

Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her heels high, and her history with the naughty bits left in. When she’s not writing or reading, she gets her kicks from TV series like VEEP, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, and Homeland. She occasionally runs three miles, but only so she can have more gin and steak.

Melanie is the author of the AFTER WE FALL series, the HAPPY CRAZY LOVE series, the FRENCHED series, and the sexy historical SPEAK EASY duet, set in the 1920s. She lifts her glass to romance readers and writers from her home near Detroit, MI, where she lives with her husband, two daughters, and pet rabbit.

My Review!

“Only you. Always you.”

That quote right there is epic and everything!

I fell in love with Melaine’s work when I stumbled across Some Sort of Happy and it was the best stumble EVER!

Only You is the story of Emme and Nate, neighbors and fabulous friends, at first and then so much more!

Emme is the epitome of what every girl wants to be! She is independent, she is fierce in her beliefs and wants what she wants and doesn’t apologize for it! She is also whimsical and fun.  She has had a string of bad luck in relationships but is holding out for her true love and when she finds it, she is patient, forgiving and strong when she needs to be!

Nate, oh Nate… Because of his past, he is fierce in his beliefs too and all comes crashing down when he finds out he is a father!  Melanie really nails his parenting trials and tribulations with humor and reality! One of my favorite quotes is “…Yes, I’d like a case of Red Bull, 6 lines of cocaine, and a Pixie Stick.” It’s hysterical and if you are a parent, you know you have said some sort of version of this! It is spot on!

I enjoyed seeing past characters from Melanie’s books having a part in Emme & Nates story too.  It was like a bit of a reunion with friends and it was good to see what everybody has been up to!

This book is another stellar addition to Melanie’s work!  Do yourself a favor and read this and all of her past work! Thank you for your words and stories Melanie! Please don’t ever stop writing!

Happy Release Day! The Scars I Bare by J.L. Berg

Be sure to watch out for my blog tour and review of this fantastic novel!  This is the first book I have read by this author, but it surely won’t be my last!! 


The Scars I Bare by J.L. Berg
Publication Date: March 12th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

tSIB Amazon

Every scar tells a story…
Some are etched on the skin, for the whole world to see.
Others are buried deep, so deep, only the heart can truly find them.

Dean Sutherland was the quintessential guy next door. Strong and dependable, with a heart of gold, he knew exactly where his life was headed. Until one fateful night at sea ripped away everything. Now he’s adrift, a man without a purpose.

Cora Carpenter thought she had the perfect life. A successful career, an affectionate husband and a daughter who adores her. But soon that perfect world is crashing down around her, and she’s in need of a fresh start. Moving to a remote town on the coast of North Carolina seems like the perfect plan. That is until she finds herself face to face with a kindred soul from her past.

Dean and Cora have more in common than either are willing to admit. Both deeply rooted in their pain, they can’t help but find hope in each other’s eyes and passion entwined with every touch. But can two broken hearts make a whole?

Will the scars they’ve bared to one another poison their happily ever after, or can love truly heal all?

I’m a California native, who lives in the South – Virginia to be exact. I still prefer sushi to fried chicken, avocados to okra, and I absolutely loathe humidity. I do love watching the seasons change though. My husband and I have been here for over a decade, and I still get giddy like a school girl every time it snows. It’s magical!

I’m married to my high school sweetheart, and we’ve been blessed with two beautiful daughters and two rescue pups I like to call my “coworkers”. I’m obsessed with chocolate, minions, anything Harry Potter and I love to watch re-runs of Friends and Gilmore Girls!

Blog Tour & Review – Two Wedding Crashers by Meghan Quinn

See My Review Below!!

 

BUY NOW

AMAZON US | AMAZON UK | AMAZON CA | AMAZON AU

 

 

I don’t know what love is anymore.

Well, that’s not entirely true, but I’m going to tell you a little secret: I’ve lost the spark.

You know the kind of spark I’m talking about?

Where butterflies take flight in your stomach from two hands innocently colliding. Or catching your breath when you first meet someone attractive. Yeah, that spark.

Except I haven’t felt that feeling in forever; there is nothing left inside of me.

Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem–but I’m a writer on a serious deadline, and my editor is breathing down my neck for a romantic, Nicholas Sparks type love story. No pressure, right?

That’s how I find myself flying across the country to crash a wedding in the name of research, dress and heels stuffed into my small suitcase.

It should be the easiest book research ever. Drinking some free champagne, basking in the love of two strangers, and tapping into my romantic side. That will be a breeze. I’m a pro. I can handle this.

Until I mistakenly end up in the wrong hotel room, naked as the day I was born, with the sexiest human I have ever met staring me down, wondering what I’m doing taking a shower in his bathroom. I don’t think calling it research will get me out of this pickle.

 

 

 

 

 

Chills scream their way down my arms and legs, my nipples pucker, and just like that, with one word, all humor vanishes from our little conversation and awareness of this all-consuming man wrapped around me hits me hard.

Gathering myself, I say, “Tell me something Chris and Justine know about you.”

“Hmm.” His thumbs hook under the waistband of my shorts, playing with the lower part of my hipbones. His touch spurs on my pelvis, needing to rock, begging for him to go lower. My toes curl in my sandals and my back slightly arches, reaching for more. “Something they know about me.”

His mouth doesn’t stray from its position against my ear, and his hips start to slowly move underneath me, his legs tangling with mine. Involuntarily, one of my hands hooks the back of his neck as I hold on tightly to him, feeling like I need support from the onslaught of sensation I’m feeling.

I hear him say something, but it doesn’t register in my brain, which has turned to mush as his thumbs stray from my hipbones to right above my pubic bone.

There is no denying how turned on I am, how wet I am from his mere touch, how much—despite my reservations—I want this man.

With each stroke, my head turns farther and farther to the side until our noses are touching, Beck’s head bends forward to meet me halfway. My eyes flutter shut for a brief moment before I open them and am captured by those flecks of green and gold.

The air stills around us, our breath mixing, swirling between us, our lips so close.

One swipe of this thumb.

Another one.

I can’t breathe.

I can’t focus.

Another swipe, my head leans even closer, my tongue wetting my lips.

One more swipe . . .

My heart hammers in my chest, my skin prickling with awareness.

Beck brings his mouth even closer, only a whisper away now, and he waits.

Holding still.

His breathing feeling erratic beneath me.

One.

More.

Swipe.

And I’m gone.

I bring my mouth to his, slowly parting my lips ever so slightly, just enough to maneuver my mouth across his.

A low, provocative moan escapes Beck as one of his hands snags the back of my head and holds me in place, almost as if he lets go, I’ll disappear.

Needing more, I shift on his lap so I’m straddling him once again, my hands on his bare chest, feeling the powerful sinew that holds him together.

Our lips press and mold, mingling, taking, begging . . .

Desperate.

Beck’s tongue runs against my bottom lip, eliciting a moan from deep within me, lighting a fire so hot, so wild, my hands start to travel up his neck to his cheeks where I grip him, positioning his head so when I open my mouth, I can expertly dive my tongue onto his.

He groans, his lap shifting against mine now, his hard-on pressing against my wet and throbbing center. I match his rocking, using my position on his lap to take advantage of his length I can feel through his board shorts.

This is exactly what I didn’t want to happen, but God, am I happy it has. Maybe I really should live in the moment, maybe I should take advantage of the opportunity, maybe I should…

 

 

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!

My Review!

I was so excited to finally get Beck’s story! (I have been a HUGE fan of Beck since Three Blind Dates!)

Meghan did not fail to come through once again with the romance, the steaminess, the comedy and yes a bit of tears (at least on my part) with this story of Beck and Rylee. I also want to say that even though this book is a part of series, it can totally be read as a standalone, easily!

Beck was introduced to us briefly in Three Blind Dates, he was a rebel with a cause. But there was some things he kept close to the chest and didn’t want to reveal quite yet. It made me beg for more about him and we finally get just that with Two Wedding Crashers. We get to know Beck and love him all the harder for it. We see his striving to be a better person and trying hard to love life but with a personal cross that he bears that is hard for him to put down until he meets Rylee. And I love his nickname for her! It’s spot on!

Oh Rylee, how I love this girl! She is so epically funny! She is smart, she is fierce and she has been through so much. I love how Meghan would tease us a bit through out the book at what she was hiding from Beck. Rylee finally comes clean with a powerful scene that will hit you in the gut and make you want to hug her close and tell her that is still whole and she is still worthy!

Oh and let me tell you! As always with Meghan’s stories, the secondary characters are phenomenal! Beck and Rylee’s friends and family rally around these two with humor, love and sassiness!

I love Meghan’s world of characters so hard! It doesn’t matter if it’s a standalone or a series, every book she writes completely takes you into her world and makes you a part of the community of her mind! Thank you so much for your words and stories Meghan! Don’t ever stop writing!

HERO
A standalone contemporary romance in the MORGAN BROTHERS SERIES from USA Today Bestselling Author Lauren Rowe. The story of firefighter Colby Morgan that proves heroes come in many forms . . .
The first time I laid eyes on Lydia Decker, I couldn’t speak. Or breathe. Or string two coherent thoughts together.
And I don’t mean any of that figuratively.
I’m not talking about a guy being floored by the sight of a gorgeous woman—although, of course, Lydia is gorgeous beyond words.
No, when I first laid eyes on Lydia Decker—my physical therapist—I was lying flat on my back in the ICU, high as a kite on painkillers, breathing on a ventilator, my bones as broken and splintered as my spirit.
When I first laid eyes on Lydia Decker, she was a ray of light in the dark. Hope for the hopeless. A salve for my singed and battered soul.
She said she’d been assigned to fix me. That she was there to bring me back to life. She said helping me was her calling.
And then she touched me. Physically, emotionally, spiritually. She healed me.
And I fell in love.
But what I didn’t know . . . what I couldn’t possibly know . . . was that Lydia Decker needed fixing far more than I ever did.

 

My Review!!

Oh Lauren, how I love thee! This book is absolute platinum! (Which is better than gold!)

Hero, the story of Colby and Lydia is what a true romance should be.

The first three chapters absolutely gutted me, I cannot image a pain like that. So I cried, because it made my heart hurt.

Then you get the interaction of the Morgan siblings and you crack up.  How Lauren comes up with the zingers that fly between the siblings is amazeballs! “…can you guess why I happen to be here at chicken-thirty on a Saturday morning?” So I laughed out loud, and got crazy looks from my family, because it made my heart laugh.

Finally you get the chemistry of Colby and Lydia and it makes you believe in love, lust and destiny.  So I fell in love with these two because it made my heart burn with passion.

From blowing raspberries, to the story of the pearl, this book is aces!  I am so glad that Lauren was able to write Colby’s story with mercy and Lydia’s story with grace.  I am in awe of your words and your world of characters!  To catch a glimpse of past characters was the cherry on top of an already perfect dessert!

You have a fan for life Lauren! Brava for your words!

Happy Release Day/Review – Marriage of Inconvenience by Penny Reid

See my review below….

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

MOI copy.jpg

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?

My Review!

The end is always the beginning…

How I love Penny Reid! I first read her Winston Brothers series, I knew this an author I would follow (or stalk, it’s all semantics 🙂 but in a healthy way I swear!!) So when I was lucky enough to read this book in her Knitting in the City series, I knew I had to jump on the chance.

Now, I have to beg forgiveness here, because sadly I had only read 3 of her Knitting books. (Neanderthal Seeks Human, Neanderthal Marries Human and Beauty and the Mustache) So sorry about this and it’s an issue I will remedy in the future!

But the fantastic thing about this book and her other’s is that even though it’s a series, each one can be read as a stand alone!  For this I am so grateful for because I didn’t want to feel like I was missing anything when I started reading this book. And I surely did not.

This book is about Kat and Dan (The security man).  What a lovely story.  Penny writes romantic comedy at it’s finest and she does it with such class and style!

Kat has a past, a craptacular past and she beats herself up about it constantly.  She has a great weight on her shoulders and a glorious infatuation with Dan, which because of an unfortunate misunderstanding, believes is one sided.  But as I read, I found out, it is not!

Oh Dan, how I wish you were real! What the perfect example of a hero.  Yes he was born on the wrong side of the tracks, but thats what makes him all the more enduring!

I floved the humor in this book! I mean the first interaction between Dan and Caleb is fantastically funny. A great sense of humor in a man is a very sexy quality and Dan has it in spades!

Dan and Kat are so swoony together, their interactions are so real, steamy and just wow.

I loved this book, just like I have loved everything else I have read by Penny Reid and I know I will love whatever she writes next!  Thank you for your words, your stories and your world Penny!
