Blog Tour & Review – Tagging Up, Carrie Aarons

September 28, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

 

All Anna Callahan wants is her independence.

Being the youngest member of her immediate family, and massive network of cousins, she’s always been sheltered. That ends now. After graduating with her masters in nursing, she’s ready to move out of her parents’ house, whether they support that decision or not. While wallowing in the guilt of that choice at the local bar, she bumps into the one guy she shouldn’t go near.

A player for her family’s team and her cousin’s best friend, Clark should come with a warning label. Not only because he’s the league’s number one playboy, but because he’s significantly older than her.

Unfortunately, they can’t seem to keep their hands off of each other. That initial night together leads to scorching glances across public parties, secret hookups in hidden places, and way more than either of their hearts bargained for.

But being with Clark means lying to those closest to them. When their secret is finally discovered, it sends the already skittish bad boy running for the hills. And although she claimed to want freedom with no strings, Anna can’t help but feel the sharp pull to be with him forever.

Clark Nyle swore a long time ago he’d never be committed to anyone.

After watching his mother ruin his father through adultery and abandonment, he knows that love is for masochists and he certainly isn’t one. Baseball and living life like every day’s a party are his only two passions.

Then his father dies, and he’s forced to question everything. It leads to a barstool, too many drinks, and into the backseat of his car with the one woman he should never have touched.

Now that he’s gotten a taste of Anna, he can’t stay away. Even if their secret affair comes with way too many consequences. Her family owns the team he plays for, not to mention his best friend would cut off his balls if he knew what they were up to. Plus, he doesn’t want anything long-term, and eventually he’s going to break her heart.

But the more time he spends with her, the more he seems to want a different future than the one he always planned on. Until they’re found out, and he’s forced to choose between his demons and the disapproval of his closest friends … or her.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Tagging Up is the fifth book in the Callahan Family series by Carrie Aarons. I do believe this is the last book in the series but there is potential for more so here’s hoping! Each book can be read as standalone but I recommend reading the series since they are all unique in their own ways. 
Clark was there drowning his sorrows. Anna was there after losing a patient. Two single friends. A little bit too much drinking. Some pent up lust. This book starts out with a bang and I am here for it. 
Clark knew it shouldn’t have happened. Anna is his best friend’s little sister. She was off-limits and he was so not a relationship guy. He never went back twice. And he has known Anna since she was only sixteen. She was too young for him even if she was twenty-three now and he was thirty. She deserves someone who could give her more than one night. She was beautiful, sweet, witty, and didn’t let anyone especially him bullshit her. She told it how it was. And now, Anna was telling him that she is a woman who knows what she wants and it’s more sex with him. Without strings. Without telling her cousin, Walker. It’s none of anyone else’s business.
Anna was tired of everyone treating her like a child. A fragile child who can’t make her own decisions. She was a nurse for f*ck’s sake. She might be the baby of the family but she wasn’t some kind of princess. She was a badass who has wanted Clark since she was seventeen years old and if sex was all he was willing to give, she will take it. In the bathroom. In bed. In a plane. Up against the wall. You get my point. But she also wants to show him that he is good enough. He deserves more. But what will happen when feelings latch on? 
I have been slowly falling for Clark throughout the series and his story was so worth the wait! This man has layers. He isn’t just the team playboy and fun guy. He is so much more. And Anna, I love her too. Together, they are fire and complications. It’s one hell of a ride! 
Quotes: 
I will never, not until the day I die, forget the look on his face when he stepped into me and grabbed the back of my neck. It was possessive, so fucking hot, and like he knew exactly how I wanted to be kissed.
My soul must be floating somewhere up above my body, because I swear I just died. Fucking died and went to lust heaven, because holy Christ, Clark Nyle is dirty talking to me.
“You have no idea how good you can be.”

Sandra's Review

[user=5]

The Virgin Replay is the third book in the Rules of Love series by the ever-talented, Lauren Blakely. I am loving this series full of ballplayers and badass babes. You can read each one as standalone but I recommend reading the series since it’s fantastic! And Grant and Declan’s story (Men of Summer series) is also connected. If you have read any other books then you have met Sierra (Grant’s sister) and Chance (Grant’s teammate). I have been waiting for this story and it’s so worth the wait x10. 
The bro code. You know, aka the guy code. Don’t touch a friend’s or teammate’s sister, daughter, mom. Hell, even cousin. You don’t want to mess with friendships or chemistry on the field. 
Chance never had an issue with this code. He was married to his college love for ten years so he was never tempted to break the code. Any code. But over the last year after a very public divorce, he has been thinking about it. Sierra Blackwood was a temptation. A beautiful, smart, baseball-loving bar owner who make him weak in the knees. The problem? She was his long-time friend and teammate’s little sister. That didn’t mean he couldn’t ask her to be his fake date to a wedding they are both attending anyway, right? That’s not breaking any rules, right? Not like anything is going to happen. 
Sierra was married to her bar. It was her baby. She worked hard to get where she was today. She didn’t need a man to keep her happy but that didn’t mean she didn’t have secret crushes or wicked desires. With him. So, when he asked her to be his fake date for a Hawaiian wedding? She couldn’t say no. And she hoped he wouldn’t say no to her question. She knew he was the one she had been waiting for but would he bend the rules for one night? It’s not like they would be a thing. It would be a fling. That’s all. No-strings attached. It’s a win-win really. But, what will happen when they have to go back to reality? 
So delicious!! Sexy, passionate, sweet, and filthy. I just love these two. Sierra knows exactly what she wants and Chance is a fabulous listener. I loved their friendship over the series. It was build-up to this. Everything. They are fun, hot, spontaneous, and beautiful. They just did it for me. I can’t wait for the next book!! 🍒
Quotes: 
We won’t rock the boat either. 
We’ll rock the bed instead. 
“You like it a little hard? A little dirty?” 
Her breath comes in a harsh pant. “I do. I don’t want to be treated like a flower. I want to be treated like a woman. Like a woman who’s not breakable.” 
“Kiss me hard. Kiss me ruthless.” 
5 out of 5 stars

The Virgin Replay is the third book in the Rules of Love series by Lauren Blakely. This series is so freaking good! We have already fallen in love with Chance and Sierra throughout the series, and now we get to watch them fall for each other! Ever since Chance became single, there has been a sizzling attraction between them. He goes to her bar with his teammates, but sits at the bar and chats with her. But she’s totally off limits because she’s his teammate’s sister and he’s not willing to risk ruining his relationship with Grant, Sierra’s brother. Chance is a good guy and he likes to follow the rules and do the right thing. Sierra is a temptation he’s willing to bend the rules for. He needs a date to his cousin’s wedding, a fake date of course. And it turns out Sierra also has something she wants Chance for. She doesn’t have time for relationships, she’s too busy making her business the best it can be. Sometime in the Hawaiian sun, things stop being fake but are still only going to be temporary. Even though they both want more, neither one is going to admit it. And then it’s time to put all feelings on the table and take a gamble on love. Oh man! I love this forbidden, friend’s sister love story! It’s sexy, sweet, fun and addicting! We get to see all our faves and I love every minute I get to spend with Chance and his friends and teammates!

 

Blurb:

A virgin, an athlete, a fake romance, and only one bed in the hotel room.

Following rules shot me to the top of my game as an all-star baseball player, and the golden rule is this — don’t hookup with your teammate’s sister.

But ask her to be your fake date when you desperately need one for a family wedding? Nothing in the guy code against that. Plus, the flirty, feisty Sierra’s my friend too, so why the hell not pretend we’re madly in lust for two days in Hawaii?

No hardship in a make believe kiss here, a fake smooch there, as long as we don’t cross any dangerous lines.

Then, the hotel books us into the same suite. Which means she’s showering near me, putting on itty bitty bikinis in the same room, sliding into that king-size bed wearing only a black lace cami.

But I resist…until the night she tells me she’s been waiting for me to be her first. And there’s nothing fake about my desire to say yes, even though that’s definitely against the code. But, maybe only if someone catches feelings? And neither one of us will.

Until I do…

Release Blitz & Review – The Lies We Steal, Monty Jay

September 23, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

 

 

Release Date: September 23

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s been months since the day we stood above that empty grave that stunk of burnt flesh and secrets. All of us were dressed to the nines, one of us wearing a wedding dress, a day that was supposed to mark the beginning of a new adventure.

It marked the bitter end of our vengeance.

We have done things that have marked our souls for eternity.

But before we get there, we have to go back.

Back to where it all started. 

The place I could find in my sleep.

Hollow Heights University in the macabre, somber seaside town of Ponderosa Springs.

A college for prestigious, wealthy children to receive the highest education. A town drowning in treachery and secrets that became our damnation.

But it wasn’t the forest surrounding the grounds or even the mysterious hidden mausoleum that haunted me.

It was them.

The ones that lurked in the night, things so wicked, so twisted, so evil, they would become the rulers of my nightmares.

The Hollow Boys.

One wrong move and I landed myself directly in their line of fire.

This is not a story about love, it is not a story of happy endings.

Love just happened to blossom in our sorrows, in our pain, our fear, our blood.

Every terrible thing they ever did, we watched, we helped, we loved them anyway.

Some run from their monsters, we fell in love with ours.

5 out of 5 stars
The Lies we Steal is the first book in the Hollow Boys series by Monty Jay. I have read all of Monty’s books and I fell in love with this enemies-to-lovers story, hard. I was warned it was going to be dark and that just made me want it more. I crave darkness and this book delivered.
Briar grew up a thief. She was trained to pickpocket, break into safes and do anything she had to to survive. And now she was in a different world. Hollow Heights U in Ponderosa Springs on the seaside of Oregon. She went from a girl living in a trailer park in Texas to a girl living in a dorm room in one of the most elite colleges in the country in one of the richest cities. She just wanted to be invisible and have a fresh start where nobody knew her name. It didn’t take long for that to go to s*it. The moment he locked eyes with hers, she knew he was trouble. And when they spoke, she knew she was f*cked. He was the exact kind of boy she needed to stay away from. He would bring her into the dark…
Alistair only cared about three people. Silas, Thatcher, and Rook. Three of the most loyal friends anyone could ask for. If you saw one one campus, there was another one next to them. Usually all four. Everyone is town knew The Hollow Boys, and everyone knew to stay out of their way. That was until her. Briar didn’t cower, she thrived in Alistair’s stare. From the moment she didn’t walk away from him, he knew she was different. He hated her for it. And after one night that changes everything, he was going to ruin her. The Hollow Boys were out for revenge and she wasn’t going to f*ck that up.
OMFG! This story is total badassery. From the boys to the girls involves. Four psychos, all with different personalities with one goal. I love Alistair and his intensity and loyalty. He may seem like he has a black soul but I guarantee you will fall. And Briar, she is a true badass boss. Together, these two are explosive! I also started to fall for the other boys. I have my favorite already. It was love at first read. Haha. I am excited about the next book after a little sneak peek. I have a feeling this is going to be one of my favorite series’.
Quotes:
He sheds his suit jacket, tossing it onto the desk, while he takes his time rolling his sleeves up to the elbows. All of this a part of the mental game he plays.
We were a good contrast, he and I. He was cold and calculated. I was instinctive and hot-blooded cruelty.
The perfect pair of sociopaths.
There was just something about Alistair Caldwell that made me panic. Something inside of him was so dark, so damned, that it called to the deepest parts of my soul.
“Can’t have you forgetting who you belong to. I told you Briar,” He breathes, “you’re mine.” 
“I’m gonna rip that silver fucking spoon right out of your mouth just to feed you back all your territorial bullshit.” 
“Little Thief, there is no spoon. I learned to lick wealth from knives.”

Release Day & Review – Inmate of the Month, Lani Lynn Vale

Inmate of the Month

Souls Chapel Revenants MC Book 7

Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: September 21, 2021

About the Book

A porn video changed his life.

 

One second, he has an ex with an ax to grind, and the next, he’s internet famous—and definitely not in a good way. In an, it’ll ruin your career, kind of way.

 

Only, Laric didn’t know that he was internet famous.

 

Not until a black-haired beauty walks into his life, and stumbles over every word that she says because all she can picture is him doing the unthinkable for the world to see.

 

Sadly, that’s not the only thing wrong in his life. His world is messed up, and he likes it that way.

 

There’s no room for a woman that wants to fix him.

 

Because fixing requires intimacy, and intimacy isn’t something that Laric does. Not after the life that he’s lived, and the things he’s done to survive. Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that he’s a felon, and he has no regrets about how he got that title.

 

The last thing he needs in his life is a woman that has her head in the clouds and thinks this world is made of butterflies and confetti.

 

However, Catori isn’t who she seems.

 

The day she meets tall, dark, and handsome, he saves her life. And then never leaves—though not for his lack of trying.

Not that she’s complaining about the way they’re thrown together, time after time. She’s more than willing to have a man like Laric around. Mostly because she’s already seen the good in him that he refuses to admit that’s there.

 

He may be a biker that does questionable things, but in her heart, she knows that he does those bad things for good reasons. And she’s not about to throw away the chance at happiness just because he thinks he knows what’s best for her.

Plot twist: she knows what’s best for her. And that’s him.

God help her.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Inmate of the Month is seventh book in the Souls Chapel Revenants MC series by Lani Lynn Vale. I am loving this series and we are finally getting Laric’s story! He’s been a mystery for a few books now. Recently finding out he’s Lynn’s son and not knowing how to handle that situation. He’s gotten to be good friends with the guys and when he saves Catori’s life the first time he sees her. But it’s not the first time she’s seen him. Oh boy. He’s the man she saw in that ahem, video where she couldn’t stop watching. Now he’s going to protect her and soon he never wants to let her go. Catori never expected her stalker to take things this far, but now she’s shacked up with Laric, so it’s not all bad. After a few days with him, she doesn’t ever want to leave. She really likes his friends, who are more like family and he fits in with her family perfectly. Is it too soon for declaration of love and forever? Heck no! I loved Laric and Catori. I laughed out loud, loved the tension and am looking forward to the next one!

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Rebound is the fourth book in the Looking to Score series by Kendall Ryan. You can read each book as standalone but I recommend you read the series since they are all so much fun. Saint has been no saint during the series and that is probably why I like him so much!
Saint needs to get his s*it together off the ice or he wouldn’t be on it much longer. The tabloids love him and it affects the team. It’s now the off-season and he needs to stay low. He thought he would be miserable but then he saw her. His hot new single and very pregnant neighbor. At first, he just wanted to help her. She was new to town and moving into his building. From the moment they spoke he knew they would be friends. She had a quick wit and just got him. One day turned into a few weeks of hanging out. Then he walks in…
Kinley didn’t expect Saint to end up being her only friend in Boston. He was hot and single and could be going out every night and bringing women back to his place. Instead, he wanted to hang out with her. She was enjoying their time together until her brother,  Reeves walks in and makes everything awkward. Now, she had to make a choice for her and her baby boy. Apparently, Reeves and Saint are not friends. At all. Does she friend-zone Saint or tell her brother to mind his business after all the help he has given?
This story might just be my favorite in the series. Saint is so unexpected. Yes, flirty but so much more. I just loved them together and felt so invested in their relationship. It’s a fun, sexy, and sweet ride.
Quotes:
“You coming?” Goddamn. This woman knows exactly what she’s doing. I slide a couple of dollars onto the stand and follow her lead. I can’t wait to see what she’ll do with a cucumber.
“We had dinner plans.” Kinley gives me an unimpressed look.
“I don’t remember making plans.”
I feign confusion. “I distinctly remember you saying that I could eat you out any night of the week.” Kinley flushes a bright shade of pink, holding the door open wider.
“Oh my God, Saint. Shut up and get in here before he hears something.”
“Yes, ma’am.”
“When I’m ready, you’ll be the first to know.”
“You know where to find me.”

New Release & Review – Jerk It, Lani Lynn Vale

September 11, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Jerk It

Madd Crossfit Series 2

September 7, 2021

 

About the Book 

 

Mavis always assumed that she would be in a hospital with the good drugs when her time came. Not in the middle of the road, with no one around but the damn town mechanic that hated her.

 

But there she was, having a rock star’s baby, with no one to rely on but the one that let it be known around every turn that she was a horrible person.

 

From the time that she met Murphy and became best friends with him at the age of eight, she knew he was destined for greatness.

 

But then her grandmother fired Murphy’s mom, forcing them to live on the streets, and making Murphy to realize that maybe they weren’t best friends after all.

 

Murphy loved Mavis.

 

At least, he had when he was younger, before she betrayed him.

 

From that moment forward, Murphy goes out of his way to stay the hell away from her, and always makes sure to never get too close. Even though everything inside of him screams to make contact.

 

When he moves back to town after being gone for five years, he tries his best to stay away.

 

But there she is at his CrossFit gym. Then having a baby on the side of the road. Oh, and breaking him a little more with each step she takes away.

 

Eventually, they find their way back to each other. The only problem is, by the time that Mavis makes her way back into his heart, it breaks. And not in a rhetorical way. In the ‘he only has days to live’ kind of way.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Jerk It is the second book in the Madd CrossFit series by Lani Lynn Vale. I’m loving this series so far! We met Murphy and Mavis in No Rep and I loved their hate for each other! Now we get to see where it all comes from. They were friends when they were younger and Murphy felt betrayed by her. He moved away and now he’s back but he wants nothing to do with her. But that’s not exactly true. There’s a reason he wants her to stay away from him. But their attraction is too much. The more time they spend together the more the hate turns into red hot chemistry! It’s all foreplay and banter and barbs. When Mavis finally finds out why he tried to push her away, she vows to be there for him every minute after that. I’m not going to lie, I didn’t think it was going to end ok. I cried big fat tears. So much so that I had to stop reading because I couldn’t see. It broke my heart, then healed me then broke it again. I’ve never cried this much during a Lani book. It was SO freaking good!! Murphy is so imperfect he’s perfect. He’s not super muscular or ripped, but he’s so handsome and nice and funny. Mavis has flaws and I loved everyone of them. I love reading about characters who don’t look like models, but the love they have for each other is fierce. Already looking forward to the next one!

Release Day & Review – Hard to Love, K. Bromberg

September 7, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Hard to Love by K. Bromberg is now live!

New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, is back with a heartfelt, enemies to lovers romance and a hero who redeems himself to steal your heart . . .

He was the one-night stand that didn’t exactly go as planned. Now he’s standing before me as if he’s never seen me naked, telling my manager he’ll take the job. Reluctantly. Finn Sanderson. Sports agent extraordinaire. Handsome as hell. The man who just signed on to control my every move. Sure, I’m to blame for my recent bad press, but when your whole life has been so regimented, isn’t it normal to want to live it up a little? But when the partying stops and the grief I’m running from has nowhere else to hide, reality sets in. Turns out, Finn’s the only person I have left to help pick up the pieces. The only person to call. Staying with him is a temporary thing. But when our fighting turns into laughter and our friendship turns into something more, will I fight for a man who swears he’s hard to love? Or is it wiser to walk away? To follow the plan? * * * Offering to help with a client is a way to repay a long overdue IOU to my mentor. Little did I know she was the woman who left my hotel room at four in the morning. Stevie Lancaster. Top-seeded US tennis player. Good girl gone bad. The woman currently about to throw her career away. And now my problem. The compensation to “babysit” her is great, but she isn’t worth my trouble. But when her world falls apart and she has no one else to turn to, I try to be a good guy by gathering her up and hiding her from the media’s eye. Now she’s in my house, in my space, and even though I’m enjoying the side benefits of this unexpected arrangement, surely she’s better to leave when the time comes and follow her destiny. Because I’m not the man she needs. Not the man she could love. Right?

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Hard To Love is the fifth book in the Play Hard series by K. Bromberg. I love nothing more than a good enemies to lovers story, but one where the hero has totally redeemed himself and stolen my heart? Yes, please! Finn. My Lord. I loved not liking you. And now I love freaking loving you. You stole the series and you delivered on every one of my expectations. You have a smart mouth and you were kind of a jerk, but you are so sweet and caring on the inside. And you had your reasons. Then here comes Stevie with her sexiness and her equally smart mouth. You know what they way about love and hate. Stevie just doesn’t need someone, she needs Finn. And he shows up. Helps her. Keeps her safe. While they get to know each other in and out of bed, Finn’s heart begins to thaw and he thinks maybe what he thought about women and love his entire life is wrong. Stevie didn’t mean to fall for Finn, but she did. It was inevitable. But what happens when she has to leave his safe space? Will Finn follow her or let her go? This is more than a love hate story. It’s about letting your guard down and trusting someone. It’s about letting yourself feel the pain and move on. It’s about embracing the hurt and making new memories. Finn is just delicious. I didn’t think I would fall so hard and fast for him, but I did and I’m not even a little sorry. Stevie is the perfect heroine. She’s strong, smart, talented and vulnerable. She didn’t need Finn to solve all her problems, she just needed time to figure out what she wanted to do with her life and Finn gave her the space to do it. Overall, I loved it! I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered and didn’t want it to end. It’s my favorite of the series and one of my favorites of Kristy’s and I’m not sorry about that either!

Release Blitz – The Aristocrat, Penelope Ward

August 30, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz | By

 

Title: The Aristocrat
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 30, 2021
BLURB

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

 

The one that got away. Every girl has one, right?
Mine was a charming, British aristocrat who turned my world upside down one summer.
From the moment I first spotted Leo in the distance through my binoculars, I’d been captivated. I certainly never expected to find a man showering outside of the property across the bay in his birthday suit.
Then I noticed his housemate staring back at me with binoculars of his own—watching me watching Leo.
That made for an interesting conversation starter when I inevitably ran into them.
Turned out, the handsome Brits were only renting that house for the summer in my seaside town.
Leo and I formed an instant connection, even though we were technically opposites by all appearances. I taught him how to dig for clams, and he taught me that not all wealthy and powerful guys are pretentious.
Despite knowing he was totally wrong for me, I couldn’t seem to stay away.
It was a wild and crazy few months. And before I knew it, we’d fallen in love.
We both had one wish: more time together.
But Leo had obligations back home. He lived a life I’d never fit into. And I was going to law school. So, we decided to end it and never look back.
A part of me always felt like I’d let my soulmate walk away.
I believed our story was over.
Until five years later when he sent me a letter that shook me to my core.
I’d thought my world was turned upside down that first summer?
Well, I knew nothing yet.

Synopsis

From NYT and USA Today bestselling author A.L. Jackson comes a single-dad, enemies-to-lovers stand-alone romance about a jaded club owner and his son’s teacher…

Eden Murphy came into my club looking to make some extra cash.

A girl like her didn’t belong in a place like this.

She’d get ripped to shreds.

Most likely by me.

There’s nothing but sweetness dripping from her sexy little body, and I’m the monster who’s salivating to get a taste.

Trent Lawson is the last man I should want.

Dark.

Dangerous.

So wickedly gorgeous he makes my knees weak.

He’s also an arrogant jerk who happens to be my new boss.

When I discover his adorable son is also in my kindergarten class, I know I have to keep my distance.

 

But neither of us can ignore the attraction that flames.

One glance, and our hearts race.

One touch, and we’re aching for what we can’t have.

One night, and we’re falling fast.

 

Dragging her into my sordid world is wrong. 

It doesn’t matter.

Eden Murphy is mine.
