Release Day Blitz & Review – Hallows End, Kristen Proby

October 4, 2022 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Hallows End by Kristen Proby is now live!

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby returns to tales beyond the natural and normal with her brand-new, captivating paranormal romance series that is sure to capture your heart and make you believe in magic.

Returning to her beloved home of Salem after a trip away, Lucy Finch can’t shake the feeling of anxiety that suddenly plagues her. Nor can she shrug off her third eye’s urging that she has a mission she must undertake—a secret she must uncover. As a green witch, Lucy has always felt strongest and the most at home in the forest, surrounded by nature. But when a disturbing dream wakes her and sends her fleeing into the woods, she isn’t prepared for what she finds. She expected her element. Perhaps a message from spirit. She didn’t expect to cross paths with a sexy-as-sin man, straight out of a movie scene. Jonas Morley isn’t like the other residents of Hallows End. He knows the town’s secrets, as well as Salem’s, and it has been his honor and duty to protect them for as long as he can remember. But the gorgeous witch who graces the town’s hidden border shakes him and makes him second-guess his directive. She calls to him like no other. But can he save his home and those under his care and still make her his? Or will their union mean danger and destruction for not only them but also those who live within the town’s borders? Curses don’t discriminate, and the curse of the blood moon is the most determined and dangerous of all. Hallows End is the first book in the Curse of the Blood Moon Series.

Hallows End is the first book in the The Curse of the Blood Moon by Kristen Proby. I loved her Bayou Magic series so I was so excited when she announced that she was writing another paranormal series.  If you read Serendipity then you have met Lucy, our first witch in the series to fall…
Lucy is a green witch, no she isn’t green, her magic is with plants and flowers. She has strong magic on top of that. She also owns an apothecary in Salem. Her aunts and cousins have a long history in the town and all have magical powers. The month of October is crazy busy with Samhain fast approaching. It’s a celebrating and a curse at the same time. It’s expected to have some unusual things happen around this time but what Lucy didn’t expect was him. A man walking in the woods behind her home. A man who shows up later in her shop. A man who has a pull of her like no other. 
Jonas has never felt anything like it. The connection to Lucy is undeniable. A connection that blew his mind. She was beautiful, sweet, smart, and witty. She was also in danger. They both were. They just didn’t know from who or what yet. Jonas needed to save a town and Lucy needed to save her family. It wasn’t the best timing for love but when is it ever? 
I really can’t get into the story but I can say I loved it! It’s a magical beginning to a new series that I am sure to totally fall in love with. These characters are badass, fun, beautiful and I can’t wait for the next book!! This couple is going to be explosive. 
“You have an open invitation to touch me whenever you’d like, Luciana.”
“You’re kidding.” 
You’re everything I’ve ever wanted and didn’t know I needed, Luciana.a

Release Day Blitz & Reviews – Tell Me A Story, Lacey Black & Kaylee Ryan

Title: Tell Me A Story
Authors: Kaylee Ryan & Lacey Black
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 4, 2022






I don’t want to be someone’s dirty little secret. I know all too well what that feels like.
Guarding my heart means staying out of pro football player Brock Williams’s bed and out of the spotlight. But after all these years, he’s exactly like I remember, charming, determined, and used to getting what he wants. And what he wants now is me.
The chemistry between us is undeniable. And the guy I always saw as a player is now the one who makes my heart beat fast—the one who leaves dirty love notes on my pillow.
Oh, yeah… he also happens to be my brother’s best friend.




Hooking up with Joey is a bad idea, but that’s not going to stop me.
I remember the first time we met. Joey showed up at campus to visit her brother, and when she came walking out in that little yellow bikini, I stopped seeing her as my best friend’s little sister and saw her as someone I desired but could never have. It turns out I was wrong.
For now, it’s stolen moments and promises on paper… of all the things I’m going to do once I make her mine. Her brother might not forgive me, but she’s worth the risk. I can’t deny myself any longer.
I’m tired of sitting on the sidelines. It’s time to execute the play and show Joey how our story ends.

Tell Me a Story is Lacey Black and Kaylee Ryan’s newest standalone novel. It’s a best friend’s sister sports romance and I am here for it. I love everything this duo writes and this is another book added to the list.
Brock has be traded to his best friend’s football team, the Kansas City Ramblers. Caleb is not only his best friend and teammate, his roommate. He is excited to be back on the same team and seeing Caleb every day. They have each other’s wingman back.  Except, a few days before their first preseason game, Joey shows up turns Brock’s world upside down. Sure, he remembers Caleb’s little sister, she was cute at eighteen but at twenty-five, she took his breath away. He knew he needed to stay away but the pull was too much. He wanted her. He wanted more than his next carb and that says a lot for an athlete (lol)…
Joey needed to get away so she decided to go stay with her brother. She thought it would just be the two of them but no, Caleb’s hot football playing best friend will be staying right across the hall. He had always been charming and crush-worthy but according to good Ol’ Google, he was also a player off the field. With the way she grew up she didn’t need that in her life but the chemistry between them was too strong. She didn’t understand it, why her? She didn’t think she was anything special but he treated her like she was his light in the dark.
Aw! I love these two. They are adorable, funny, sweet, and sexy. Their connection is beautiful, really. I don’t want to get into it any more but I will say that I am begging Lacey and Kaylee for a second book. 🏈
…When I take you to my bed, I’ll need time to savor you, because when we’re finally together, you’ll be screaming my name all night long, Sunshine. All. Fucking. Night. Long.”
“God, I’ve been waiting to kiss these lips for what feels like forever,” he whispers, sliding his mouth so easily against mine.
“You make me fall harder every moment we’re together.”

Tell Me A Story is Lacey Black and Kaylee Ryan’s newest best friend’s sister romance. I love their co-written books and this one is fun and sexy. Brock has had a thing for Joey, his best friend, Caleb’s little sister for a while and now they are living in the same house. Sneaking around is fun, but it’s not what they want. Will Caleb be supportive of their relationship? I loved, loved Brock! He’s funny, sexy and yummy! Joey is independent and gorgeous. Together they are perfect. I would love to see Caleb get his story! Wink, wink!
