Review & Excerpt Tour – Wish You Were Here, Renee Carlino

August 18, 2017 By

 

You know when you’re looking at someone and you can’t help but smile at how oblivious they are to their own charm? That’s what was happening to me, and it was making me feel…happy. Euphoric. Something indescribable. It was like we already knew each other, like we had met in a previous life. Memories that didn’t exist began exploding in my mind like fireworks.

Charlotte has spent her twenties adrift, searching for a spark to jump-start her life and give her a sense of purpose. She’s had as many jobs as she’s had bad relationships, and now she’s feeling especially lost in her less-than-glamorous gig at a pie-and-fry joint in Los Angeles, where the uniforms are bad and the tips are even worse.

Then she collides—literally—with Adam, an intriguing, handsome, and mysterious painter. Their serendipitous meeting on the street turns into a whirlwind one-night stand that has Charlotte feeling enchanted by Adam’s spontaneity and joy for life. There’s promise in both his words and actions, but in the harsh light of morning, Adam’s tune changes, leaving Charlotte to wonder if her notorious bad luck with men is really just her own bad judgment.

Months later, a new relationship with Seth, a charming baseball player, is turning into something more meaningful, but Charlotte’s still having trouble moving past her one enthralling night with Adam. Why? When she searches for answers, she finds the situation with Adam is far more complicated than she ever imagined. Faced with the decision to write a new story with Seth or finish the one started with Adam, Charlotte embarks on a life-altering journey, one that takes her across the world and back again, bringing a lifetime’s worth of pain, joy, and wisdom.

Kara's Review

Wish You Were Here is Renee Carlino’s newest masterpiece. The story is emotional, the writing fantastic and the characters real and well developed. I didn’t know what to expect when I picked up this book, but I was a sobbing, snotty mess when it was over. It was beautiful, funny, sad, and intense. But it was so much more. It’s a story of fate and destiny. Soul mates and love that changes you. It’s a lesson in living in the moment and striving to be the best you. The people you meet along the way shape who you are. You can either ignore the signs or embrace them. Charlotte never thought a random meeting with a stranger on the street would change her life forever. Adam was living each day to the fullest. His outlook on life was contagious and I fell in love with him immediately. Charlotte’s life had no direction. She was just sort of existing until Adam showed her how to live. Charlotte’s brother and parents were perfect. Just the comic relief I needed. This is a story about love. Loving yourself, loving your soul mate. Loving your friends and family. It’s not a story I can retell in a review, you just need to read it. It will speak to your heart, I promise you. The laughter and the tears were worth every second. It made me look around at my own life and see what’s important. Who is important. I can always count on Renee to change my life and once again she delivers the goods!

 

“Don’t smirk at me. We’re supposed to be talking. Quit trying to distract me with your baseball body and your hand on my knee.”

 

“You guys are seriously everywhere. Have I no privacy?”

“Now you know what it’s like to have kids.”

 

It doesn’t always feel like this, it doesn’t always feel this way, you have to seize it. Love is a wordless secret. Only the two of you have to understand.

 

“Nothing, just thinking about my future.”

“How’s it looking?”

“Brighter.”

“Maybe you need some shades.”

 

Sandra's Review

Wish You Were Here is a standalone novel by the amazingly talented Renee Carlino. I don’t want to spoil this beautiful story so I am going to make this short and to the point.
I went in totally blind. I did not read the synopsis. I had no idea what this book was about going in. I have my list of authors I do this with and Renee is on there. I just know that I will want and need to read their words. And wow. This one blew me away! It’s one of the most beautiful stories that I have ever read. If I didn’t have kids, I wouldn’t have stopped reading at any point yesterday. I was fully invested and felt like I was in the book. I felt it all. I usually review a book within an hour of finishing it but I couldn’t do it. For one, it was late. And two, it would have been a mess. Speaking of mess. Make sure to have tissues. You will need them.
I absolutely loved everything about this book. The characters. The story. The emotions it brought out. Even now, I am about to lose it. I highly recommend reading this book. It’s one of my favorites for the year! I wish I could explain more but I just can’t. I won’t. You just need to read it. There are parts that are slower but needed. Just go with it. Trust that Renee knows what she is doing.
Overall…Thank you, Renee for such a beautiful story that will stay with me for a long time.
Quotes:
“There’s nothing geeky about that body.”
“Feel me, Charlotte.”
It’s terrifying what your imagination will make you see.

Excerpt

“You’re making love sound tragic,” I said.

“No”—he shook his head—“I wouldn’t want it any other way. Tell me about us. What do we like to do?”

“Paint and sail and eat and drink. Just simple things.” “Don’t forget about sex,” he said.
“Yeah, lots of sex. Before the children were born we

“We were practically naked every second of the day.”

“I like that.”

“When they got older, we’d sneak away for weekends and leave them at my mom’s.”

“What are they like? Our children.”

“Happy. That’s all we wished for. We put our love first and it just spilled over into them and now they’re happy.”

Tears sprang from my eyes and ran down my cheeks. Isn’t that what we all hope for when it comes to our children?

His tone suddenly changed. “That’s beautiful, Char- lotte.” It was like he was waking up from the dream. I didn’t want to go back to reality yet, but I knew these fantasies were just to help Adam get his mind off things.

“I can imagine a long life with you,” he said. “I can imagine what a great wife you’d be.”

I pulled my hand out of his. “The story is about you and me.” He didn’t say anything; he just nodded and then continued to stare out the window. I bent and kissed the top of his head again, and whispered, “It’s about us. Don’t take that away from me.”

Cover Reveal – Cuffed, K. Bromberg

August 17, 2017 By

 

WE ARE EXCITED TO BRING YOU THE COVER FOR CUFFED BY NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR K.BROMBERG RELEASING ON OCTOBER 23!

 

 

 

 

Design: Helen Williams
Photographer: Wander Aguiar

 

 

 

From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them.

“I hate you. I never want to see you again.”

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again.

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past.

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.
What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?
***

I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves.

That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up.

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story.

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

Sneak Peek – Drunk Dial, Penelope Ward

August 16, 2017 By

 

 

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

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

After that evening, I hadn’t heard back from him for a few days.

Then, one night, a text came in from the same phone number I recognized as Landon’s. It was the first time he’d texted me.

I looked down to find he’d sent a photo.

I gasped.

It was a heavily tatted man set against the backdrop of the ocean at sunset. Oh, my. It was him—a selfie.

Fuck. Me. He was beautiful.

I wouldn’t have even known it was Landon were it not for the blue eyes I recognized instantly. The shaggy, caramel hair I remembered from the past was now a darker shade of brown and shorter, cropped closer to his head. His arms and his chest were inked, his body so perfect that if I squinted, it almost resembled carved stone.

I couldn’t stop looking at him. My eyes wanted nothing more than to explore the ridges and valleys of his stunning body.

Was this a cruel joke?

This was not Landon!

But, it was.

With my thumb and middle finger, I kept zooming in and out, examining the details of the ink across his chest and on his arms. There was really nothing sexier than a guy with perfect arms and a full sleeve tattoo.

Even though his lips seemed fuller than I recalled, they still curved into a familiar grin that oozed confidence. The eyes and that smile were the only traces of the boy I remembered. I wished I could’ve leapt through the screen to smell him, touch him.

“Hi, Landon,” I whispered, for a brief moment talking to the boy inside, not the man in front of me.

This Landon was the polar opposite of the Ivy League yuppie image previously in my head. The only thing the man pictured might have majored in was badassery. He looked like a rockstar, a rule breaker, displaying a sense of arousing danger—someone who must have had women from all walks of life drooling over him for the sheer fact that either they couldn’t have him or shouldn’t have him. It suddenly became clear why, as he’d alluded to, a woman might have been begging him for sex. That made me wonder if he had any secret tattoos in spots I wasn’t allowed to see.

God.

A fire was burning inside of me, and I knew it was my crush exploding into a full-blown obsession.

A self-conscious feeling came over me. If I was scared to show him a picture of myself before, now I was really hesitant.

The message that went along with the photo simply read:

Now show me you.

Review Blitz – The Soul Mate, Kendall Ryan

August 15, 2017 By

 


From New York Times Bestseller Kendall Ryan comes a sexy new stand-alone novel in her Roommates series.

The smoking-hot one-night stand I was never supposed to see again?

Yeah, well, I might be pregnant, and he’s my OB-GYN.

Get ready to fall head over heels madly in love with the hottest OBGYN doctor you have ever met! This full-length standalone contains the most hilariously awkward lady-doctor visit, lots of playful banter and some good ol’ fashioned baby-makin’!

 

Amazon | iBooks | Nook | Kobo

4.5 Stars
The Soul Mate is the fourth standalone in the Roommates series. I have loved each one of these books for different reasons. The storylines. The humor. The feels they give me. They have all been fast reads with the perfect amount of it all. The Soul Mate is Mason and Bren’s story…
It was only supposed to be one night. One night of multiple, explosive orgasms. What Bren didn’t expect was that she felt more for him. And that was exactly why she ghosted him. She could see herself fall for him. One night then she would forget. That was the plan until she thought she was pregnant and shows up to Dr. Bentley’s. Well…at least now she knows what her one night stand’s last name is.
Mason wanted more than one night. He had that feeling the moment he saw her. It was confirmed the night he had her in his bed. The passion and laughs did it for him. He was going to let her know just that when he woke up but she was gone. He looked for her but never expected that she would be a new patient. A new patient that needed to confirm a pregnancy. But, maybe just maybe this was another sign that they should be together. He wasn’t going to give up. He needed to know. Which leads to a proposal. No, not that kind…
Mason and Bren both feel it. Feel the connection between them. Too bad one of them wants to run from it and the other wants to run towards it. Will they ever be on the same page?
I loved Mason. He is swoon-worthy. He is sweet, sexy, and can cook! A romantic on top of that. He also plays rugby. Yumminess all around. Bren sees all this and it scares the fuck out of her. She is an independent woman that doesn’t want the heartbreak. She sees it enough with the animals she works with at the zoo. She also saw it growing up. Together, they have some big decisions to make. Feelings to discover. And do it knowing there could be a baby on the way.
Overall…it’s a fast read with a unique storyline. It made me swoon. Laugh. Feel hot and bothered. And smile.
Quotes:
“You nerds all know how to pick each other.”
“You’re a nerd, too, dude” I pointed out.
“That doesn’t mean I like my women brainy.”
“That was nothing. He moved way too fast. Buying me a new computer for my birthday? Who did he think he was, fucking Christian Grey, for crying out loud? Take it easy, am I right?”
“If that’s the way you react to a blow job, you must not have had very many in your life,” she joked, but her hand fluttered to her throat and her eyes gleamed.
4.5 Stars

The Soul Mate is the fourth book in the Roommates series by the talented, Kendall Ryan. It is a series of standalones, so no need to read them all, but you’ll want to because they are great! The Soul Mate is about a one night stand that was off the charts and might possibly have resulted in a pregnancy! And not only that, he’s your obgyn! Mason shared a spectacular night with a stranger and ever since she vanished without a trace, he’s been looking for her. Only to see her again in his office. To say it’s a shock is putting it mildly. Bren isn’t a one night stand kind of girl and now she’s looking at the sexy doctor who might have knocked her up. What happens now? Can one sexy night be your soul  mate? I really enjoyed this story. It was as funny as the other in the series, but The Soul Mate has more heart. Mason is definitely sexy and smart and funny. But he’s also romantic, sweet and vulnerable. Bren is beautiful, funny and scare of love. Mason is the doctor that has the cure for her. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself!!)

She as like no woman I’d ever known and if it wasn’t love yet, I was well on my way. She could say what she wanted but her body didn’t lie. She was just as into me as I was into her.

Review Blitz & Excerpt – Royally Endowed, Emma Chase

August 15, 2017 By

 

 

 

 

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??

Sexy. As. Hell.

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go.
***
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.

Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.

But there’s only one woman he wants.

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

Sandra's Review

5 Stars

Royally Endowed is the third book in the Royally series by the amazing Emma Chase. It can be read as a standalone but if you haven’t read the previous books…you will want to! If you did read the previous books then you should remember Logan as the sexy bodyguard to Prince Nicholas. And who could forget Ellie, Olivia’s younger wilder sister. Well, this is their story…
It’s one of those tales. She wants him. He wants her. She feels he doesn’t see her. He only sees her. They both feel the attraction. She is off limits. He is stubborn. Until one day everything changes.
Yeah. I can’t tell you much. I wouldn’t want to ruin it for you. I will say that the way Emma writes their story is brilliant, addicting, and beautiful. It was amazing to watch how their relationship grew through the years and how much they truly do care for one another. They want the other to be happy. To hear their laughs. To see their smiles. And the way Logan makes her feel protected is the greatest form of love.
I ❤️ Logan & Ellie. Logan is a sexy badass. Ellie is a strong and free-spirited woman. Together, they gave me all the feels. Every last one. Yes. They are sexy and flirty but they are so much. Deeper. Their lives are not easy but they knew it wouldn’t be.
Overall…I loved it so hard! It was great catching up with Nicholas and Olivia. So much fun to catch up with Henry and Sarah! I am not sure if this is going to be the last of the series but I am hoping for a certain bodyguard to get his own story. And I even have the perfect woman in mind for him.
Quotes:
“I don’t give a fuck what’s rude; you need to listen to me. Do what I say from this point on, understand?”
It’s on the tip of my tongue to ask what he’ll do if I don’t. Spank me? Tie me up? Handcuff me to his side? If those are the consequences for disobeying Special Agent Sexy-Face, I’m about to become a very naughty girl.
“Yeah, what is this, Seven?” Ellie whispers. “Come on, Morgan Freeman—what’s in the box?”
“I’m going to hell for this,” I mutter.
Ellie grins. “Then you should make the most of it before you burn.” Good advice.
5 Stars

Royally Endowed is the third book in the Royally series by the talented Emma Chase. I’ve been a fan of Emma’s for a long time! I know when I read one of her books I’m going to be thoroughly entertained to the point of crying from laughing, fanning myself from the sexiness and crying from the emotions! Royally Endowed is my favorite from the series! Emma brought out her A Game with this one! Logan and Ellie are perfection together. Logan with his handsomeness and sexy accent and Ellie with her quirkiness and hilarity. I didn’t want to stop reading. I was obsessed with seeing how their story played out. Could the bodyguard and the princess’s sister fall in love? What happens when he can’t always be there to protect her? I loved this story! The slow burn of this romance was just what I needed! I loved the dual point of view and knowing the history and how it all started for them. I can’t even express how funny they are! I was dying from laughing! I wanted to be Ellie! Logan may be one of my favorite Emma heroes!

 

This bodyguard may have a service revolver in his pocket, but he’s got a magnum in his pants. Yum.

 

“Have you missed me?”

“I burn for you, sweet girl. I dream of you, even when I’m awake.”

 

He laughs

And it’s beautiful.

It’s a crime he doesn’t do it more often. Or maybe it’s a blessing. Because Logan St. James is a sexy, stunning man on any given day. But when he laughs?

He’s heart-stopping.

 

Ellie

But then the mood shifts, as if the air becomes thicker, weighted, more . . . sultry.

Because slowly, Logan sinks down to one knee in front of me—looking in my eyes the whole time. In this position, I could touch his shoulders, comb my fingers through his thick, dark hair. He’s the perfect height for me to bend down and kiss his mouth—the perfect height for him to kiss me back . . . in a lot of places.

My breath hitches. And I wonder he feels it too.

There’s a sound of tearing Velcro, and Logan takes something off his ankle—a holster, with a small silver knife, about three inches long.

“Keep this on you all the time,” he says seriously. “Just in case. If you wear a skirt, the strap will fit around your thigh.”

And I almost laugh. Most girls get a ring from a guy on his knees. I get a murder weapon. But still, it makes me feel safe . . . watched over. Like I’m something precious that deserves to be protected.

I take the knife from him, testing the surprisingly solid, heavy weight of it in my hand. I press my index finger to the tip.

Logan grabs my wrist tightly. “Careful. It’s sharp.”

There’s a small, painless nick, a tiny bead of blood, so I put my finger in my mouth, sucking.

And Logan’s watching me again.

Watching my mouth.

His chest seems to rise just a little faster, and his throat ripples when he swallows. He bends his head, curves his strong back, and then I feel his hands on my ankle, securing the strap. His touch is warm and self-assured. It’s the way he always moves—confident and experienced. Logan knows his body and he knows how to use it, in every way possible.

I almost moan. The sound is in the back of my throat, but I keep it trapped. I never knew the ankle was an erogenous zone, but it sure as hell is now. A hot pulse of pleasure streaks from Logan’s fingers on my bare skin, up my thigh, between my legs.

And I throb there, growing swollen and heavy as he keeps his hands on me.

Can he tell? Does he know? He’s so aware of everything, always so attuned, I wonder if he can sense my arousal . . . feel it in the air that clings between us.

Release Day Blitz, 6 Heart Reviews & Excerpt – Wish You Were Here, Renee Carlino

August 15, 2017 By

 

You know when you’re looking at someone and you can’t help but smile at how oblivious they are to their own charm? That’s what was happening to me, and it was making me feel…happy. Euphoric. Something indescribable. It was like we already knew each other, like we had met in a previous life. Memories that didn’t exist began exploding in my mind like fireworks.

Charlotte has spent her twenties adrift, searching for a spark to jump-start her life and give her a sense of purpose. She’s had as many jobs as she’s had bad relationships, and now she’s feeling especially lost in her less-than-glamorous gig at a pie-and-fry joint in Los Angeles, where the uniforms are bad and the tips are even worse.

Then she collides—literally—with Adam, an intriguing, handsome, and mysterious painter. Their serendipitous meeting on the street turns into a whirlwind one-night stand that has Charlotte feeling enchanted by Adam’s spontaneity and joy for life. There’s promise in both his words and actions, but in the harsh light of morning, Adam’s tune changes, leaving Charlotte to wonder if her notorious bad luck with men is really just her own bad judgment.

Months later, a new relationship with Seth, a charming baseball player, is turning into something more meaningful, but Charlotte’s still having trouble moving past her one enthralling night with Adam. Why? When she searches for answers, she finds the situation with Adam is far more complicated than she ever imagined. Faced with the decision to write a new story with Seth or finish the one started with Adam, Charlotte embarks on a life-altering journey, one that takes her across the world and back again, bringing a lifetime’s worth of pain, joy, and wisdom.

Kara's Review

Wish You Were Here is Renee Carlino’s newest masterpiece. The story is emotional, the writing fantastic and the characters real and well developed. I didn’t know what to expect when I picked up this book, but I was a sobbing, snotty mess when it was over. It was beautiful, funny, sad, and intense. But it was so much more. It’s a story of fate and destiny. Soul mates and love that changes you. It’s a lesson in living in the moment and striving to be the best you. The people you meet along the way shape who you are. You can either ignore the signs or embrace them. Charlotte never thought a random meeting with a stranger on the street would change her life forever. Adam was living each day to the fullest. His outlook on life was contagious and I fell in love with him immediately. Charlotte’s life had no direction. She was just sort of existing until Adam showed her how to live. Charlotte’s brother and parents were perfect. Just the comic relief I needed. This is a story about love. Loving yourself, loving your soul mate. Loving your friends and family. It’s not a story I can retell in a review, you just need to read it. It will speak to your heart, I promise you. The laughter and the tears were worth every second. It made me look around at my own life and see what’s important. Who is important. I can always count on Renee to change my life and once again she delivers the goods!

 

“Don’t smirk at me. We’re supposed to be talking. Quit trying to distract me with your baseball body and your hand on my knee.”

 

“You guys are seriously everywhere. Have I no privacy?”

“Now you know what it’s like to have kids.”

 

It doesn’t always feel like this, it doesn’t always feel this way, you have to seize it. Love is a wordless secret. Only the two of you have to understand.

 

“Nothing, just thinking about my future.”

“How’s it looking?”

“Brighter.”

“Maybe you need some shades.”

 

Sandra's Review

Wish You Were Here is a standalone novel by the amazingly talented Renee Carlino. I don’t want to spoil this beautiful story so I am going to make this short and to the point.
I went in totally blind. I did not read the synopsis. I had no idea what this book was about going in. I have my list of authors I do this with and Renee is on there. I just know that I will want and need to read their words. And wow. This one blew me away! It’s one of the most beautiful stories that I have ever read. If I didn’t have kids, I wouldn’t have stopped reading at any point yesterday. I was fully invested and felt like I was in the book. I felt it all. I usually review a book within an hour of finishing it but I couldn’t do it. For one, it was late. And two, it would have been a mess. Speaking of mess. Make sure to have tissues. You will need them.
I absolutely loved everything about this book. The characters. The story. The emotions it brought out. Even now, I am about to lose it. I highly recommend reading this book. It’s one of my favorites for the year! I wish I could explain more but I just can’t. I won’t. You just need to read it. There are parts that are slower but needed. Just go with it. Trust that Renee knows what she is doing.
Overall…Thank you, Renee for such a beautiful story that will stay with me for a long time.
Quotes:
“There’s nothing geeky about that body.”
“Feel me, Charlotte.”
It’s terrifying what your imagination will make you see.

Excerpt

“You’re making love sound tragic,” I said.

“No”—he shook his head—“I wouldn’t want it any other way. Tell me about us. What do we like to do?”

“Paint and sail and eat and drink. Just simple things.” “Don’t forget about sex,” he said.
“Yeah, lots of sex. Before the children were born we

“We were practically naked every second of the day.”

“I like that.”

“When they got older, we’d sneak away for weekends and leave them at my mom’s.”

“What are they like? Our children.”

“Happy. That’s all we wished for. We put our love first and it just spilled over into them and now they’re happy.”

Tears sprang from my eyes and ran down my cheeks. Isn’t that what we all hope for when it comes to our children?

His tone suddenly changed. “That’s beautiful, Char- lotte.” It was like he was waking up from the dream. I didn’t want to go back to reality yet, but I knew these fantasies were just to help Adam get his mind off things.

“I can imagine a long life with you,” he said. “I can imagine what a great wife you’d be.”

I pulled my hand out of his. “The story is about you and me.” He didn’t say anything; he just nodded and then continued to stare out the window. I bent and kissed the top of his head again, and whispered, “It’s about us. Don’t take that away from me.”

Release Day Blitz & Reviews – The Soul Mate, Kendall Ryan

August 14, 2017 By

 


From New York Times Bestseller Kendall Ryan comes a sexy new stand-alone novel in her Roommates series.

The smoking-hot one-night stand I was never supposed to see again?

Yeah, well, I might be pregnant, and he’s my OB-GYN.

Get ready to fall head over heels madly in love with the hottest OBGYN doctor you have ever met! This full-length standalone contains the most hilariously awkward lady-doctor visit, lots of playful banter and some good ol’ fashioned baby-makin’!

 

 

Amazon | iBooks | Nook | Kobo

4.5 Stars
The Soul Mate is the fourth standalone in the Roommates series. I have loved each one of these books for different reasons. The storylines. The humor. The feels they give me. They have all been fast reads with the perfect amount of it all. The Soul Mate is Mason and Bren’s story…
It was only supposed to be one night. One night of multiple, explosive orgasms. What Bren didn’t expect was that she felt more for him. And that was exactly why she ghosted him. She could see herself fall for him. One night then she would forget. That was the plan until she thought she was pregnant and shows up to Dr. Bentley’s. Well…at least now she knows what her one night stand’s last name is.
Mason wanted more than one night. He had that feeling the moment he saw her. It was confirmed the night he had her in his bed. The passion and laughs did it for him. He was going to let her know just that when he woke up but she was gone. He looked for her but never expected that she would be a new patient. A new patient that needed to confirm a pregnancy. But, maybe just maybe this was another sign that they should be together. He wasn’t going to give up. He needed to know. Which leads to a proposal. No, not that kind…
Mason and Bren both feel it. Feel the connection between them. Too bad one of them wants to run from it and the other wants to run towards it. Will they ever be on the same page?
I loved Mason. He is swoon-worthy. He is sweet, sexy, and can cook! A romantic on top of that. He also plays rugby. Yumminess all around. Bren sees all this and it scares the fuck out of her. She is an independent woman that doesn’t want the heartbreak. She sees it enough with the animals she works with at the zoo. She also saw it growing up. Together, they have some big decisions to make. Feelings to discover. And do it knowing there could be a baby on the way.
Overall…it’s a fast read with a unique storyline. It made me swoon. Laugh. Feel hot and bothered. And smile.
Quotes:
“You nerds all know how to pick each other.”
“You’re a nerd, too, dude” I pointed out.
“That doesn’t mean I like my women brainy.”
“That was nothing. He moved way too fast. Buying me a new computer for my birthday? Who did he think he was, fucking Christian Grey, for crying out loud? Take it easy, am I right?”
“If that’s the way you react to a blow job, you must not have had very many in your life,” she joked, but her hand fluttered to her throat and her eyes gleamed.
4.5 Stars

The Soul Mate is the fourth book in the Roommates series by the talented, Kendall Ryan. It is a series of standalones, so no need to read them all, but you’ll want to because they are great! The Soul Mate is about a one night stand that was off the charts and might possibly have resulted in a pregnancy! And not only that, he’s your obgyn! Mason shared a spectacular night with a stranger and ever since she vanished without a trace, he’s been looking for her. Only to see her again in his office. To say it’s a shock is putting it mildly. Bren isn’t a one night stand kind of girl and now she’s looking at the sexy doctor who might have knocked her up. What happens now? Can one sexy night be your soul  mate? I really enjoyed this story. It was as funny as the other in the series, but The Soul Mate has more heart. Mason is definitely sexy and smart and funny. But he’s also romantic, sweet and vulnerable. Bren is beautiful, funny and scare of love. Mason is the doctor that has the cure for her. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself!!)

She as like no woman I’d ever known and if it wasn’t love yet, I was well on my way. She could say what she wanted but her body didn’t lie. She was just as into me as I was into her.

Review Tour & Excerpt – Wicked Wish, Sawyer Bennett

August 11, 2017 By

 

Jorinda Pearce thought she did everything right – graduated from college, married her long-time sweetheart, established a career. But what does she have to show for it now? A degree she doesn’t use, a job she hates, and an ex-husband that broke her heart.

Looking for a long overdue adventure, Jorie takes a walk on the wild side and attends a masquerade event at The Wicked Horse Vegas. It’s exactly the escape she’s looking for, and even better, she can explore anonymously. Drawn to the man masked in black leather with the body of a god, Jorie finds the greatest pleasures of her life at the hands of a stranger.

Walsh Brooks is the most sought after man in The Wicked Horse. Sex is nothing but a game to him and he’s the type that will always leave at the end of the night without looking back. Unfortunately for Walsh, there’s no way he can walk away from the mysterious green-eyed beauty behind the mask of sapphire feathers, because he knows exactly who she is.

Jorie is his best friend’s little sister and there’s not another woman in the world that’s more off limits.

Sandra's Review

5 Stars

Wicked Wish is the second book in the Wicked Horse Vegas series. It can totally be read as a standalone. These are two new characters that we haven’t met in any way before. But, I can guarantee you that Walsh was in the background of some steamy scenes in Wicked Favor even if he wasn’t named. The man is a sex god.
It all started with a masquerade party at a sex club. Walsh was there to have his fun for the night as usual. Jorie was there to prove to herself that she could be sexy and adventurous. What is more adventurous than having sex with a complete stranger in a club like Wicked Horse? Not much. And the minute she saw him, she knew he was the one she wanted. Mysterious, rock hard, and sinful. Walsh was all in when he saw her. There was something about her that was different. She was turned on by what she was seeing but not fighting for it. He knew then, he had to have her. Now. And when they come together it’s the best sex of his life. Then it’s hell. He just fucked his best friend’s little sister and didn’t know it until he saw the proof. He felt instantly guilty. Not only because it was her but because he wants to do it again.
Jorie had no idea it was Walsh. The man who grew up in the house next to hers. The man that was her hero as a child and the man she thought about in bed as a teenager. She thought that crush was long forgotten when she got married but now, being with him. It was just the beginning. She has to discover what they could have even if just sex. He makes her feel sexy, wanted, and dirty. Makes her feel alive. She just has to show him that what they are doing isn’t wrong. They are both adults. Adults that not only feel the need but the want for each other. But what would happen when her brother finds out?
Walsh and Jorie’s relationship is a complicated one. He wants what is best for her but he also wants to be selfish and have filthy, mind-blowing sex with her in all of the ways possible. He can’t give her marriage, family, and a house with a white picket fence but he can give her orgasms, his brand of romance, and adoration. Will that be enough? Will he push her away so she could be with a man that deserves her kind of love? Will she figure out what she truly wants before it’s too late? Will Walsh?
Overall…I loved this story! It’s a great addition to the wicked series. Yes. It’s fucking hot. But it’s more. The connection between Walsh and Jorie is off the charts inside and outside of the bedroom. The writing is magnificent as always. Sawyer has a way of sucking me in. Every. Single. Time. The story. The heat. The wickedness. The love. I don’t know who is getting the next story but I know who I want to have a story. Yum!! 💋
Quotes:
“You dressed the part to seduce me tonight, Jor. Own it.”
“I’ve created a monster.”
“You didn’t create it,” she says with a wink. “You just released it.”
“Jesus, Jorie,” I mutter. “You’re a fucking dirty girl.”
“I’ve been reading,” she says, and I can hear the satisfied smirk in her tone.
“You deserve another orgasm for that,” I tell her as I pull her back down onto my face, and she sighs with contentment.
4.5 Stars

Wicked Wish is the second book in the Wicked Horse Vegas series by the incredibly talented Sawyer Bennett. I’ve read all of her books and they are all fantastic. She can write sweet, sexy, funny, sports and erotic romance. This is very telling for an author and I’m never disappointed in her words or her characters. She always sucks you in with the story and keeps you entertained with her characters. Wicked Wish is second chance romance of sorts. Jorie is Walsh’s best friend’s little sister. He’s known her for years and even when she was a teenager he was wildly attracted to her. They have a history that goes beyond kid sister of your best friend. But, they haven’t seen each other in years. When heartbreak brings Jorie home, she’s determined to find more about herself sexually. And where better than the Wicked Horse. During a masquerade. She’s instantly attracted a stranger and when she lets herself go, it’s fantastic. But, it turns out he’s not a stranger after all. Walsh has never wanted a woman as much as he wants this gorgeous stranger. But when he finds out who she is, he can’t be with her again. He doesn’t want to lose his best friend. Jorie isn’t going to let Walsh get away. She wants to continue to be with him even if it’s only sex and temporary. But what happens when their feelings change? Can they keep their relationship from her brother? I loved the connection between Walsh and Jorie. He’s sexy and sweet. Jorie is tough and goes after what she wants! I’m looking forward to the next one!

 

“You are the sexiest thing I’ve ever laid my eyes on…”

 

“I’m offering you the same thing and frankly, our babies would be prettier.”

 

Squaring my shoulders, I march into The Royale and head straight for the concierge desk. I haven’t been in this casino before. Hell, I haven’t been in hardly any of them. Sure, I’d only grown up about forty-five minutes away, but gambling and all-you-can-eat buffets held no interest to me.

From Micah bragging about his best friend over the years, I knew Walsh orchestrated the purchase of the land, then pulled together financing with two other partners to build this casino. It’s one of the most popular on the strip, boasting five-star dining, old-world elegance, and superior customer service. Again, all this from Micah, but honestly… I’m so proud of Walsh, too. We may have lost touch over the years, but I’ll never forget all the ways in which he acted as a big brother to me.

Ick.

Okay… that’s gross. Thinking of Walsh like a brother.

I scrub my mind clean of that thought and demand myself never to do that again.

Rather, I’ll never forget all the ways in which Walsh provided me friendship and support in my formative years.

Yes… much better.

“Can I help you?” a man behind the concierge desk asks with a genuine and friendly smile. Not snooty as I would expect in a fancy hotel, and I guess that goes to the superior customer service The Royale strives for.

“Yes… hi,” I say as I nervously tuck my hair behind my ears on both sides. “I need to see Mr. Brooks. How do I go about getting access to his apartment?”

Micah told me some time ago that Walsh lives here.

The concierge never loses his friendly smile, but a single eyebrow arches high at my temerity.

“Oh, gosh,” I stammer. “That came out stalkerish. Mr. Brooks… I mean, Walsh… and I are longtime friends. He used to babysit me.”

“Your name?” the man asks as he pulls up something on his computer.

“Jorie Pearce.”

After a moment of scanning, he looks up at me. “Your name isn’t on the approved list.”

“Well, he’s not exactly expecting me.”

“I’m sorry, Miss Pearce,” he says with true regret in his voice. “But our policy is strict. No one gets up to the private penthouse without their name on the list.”

I lean on the desk with one elbow and lower my voice. “Just out of curiosity… are there any women on that list?”

The eyebrow shoots up again.

“No, wait,” I say hastily as I hold my palms toward him in a silent plea to not process my last request either mentally or on the computer. “That’s totally stalkerish, and I didn’t mean that.”

“Miss Pearce,” the concierge says, now with a hint of annoyance. “Perhaps you’d like to leave a message? I can get it up to Mr. Brooks today and he can call you.”

“No, I need to see him now,” I tell him firmly. “And I swear it’s not to cook a rabbit in a pot on his stove. Can you please just call up to his apartment?”

“That’s not our policy—”

“Look,” I snap as I lean across the desk slightly. “I’m a lifelong friend of Walsh’s. My brother is his best friend. We lost touch for a few years, but we ran into each other last night. I really need to talk to him about something that happened last night, and I’m not leaving this hotel until you call up to his apartment.”

The eyebrow doesn’t arch but it does draw inward to meet its match on the other side as he considers what I just said.

“I swear to you,” and here I pause to look at his name tag, “Bentley. Please just call him. He won’t be mad.”

With a sigh, he relents and picks up the phone receiver, punching in a five-digit number. After a pause, he says, “Mr. Brooks… I’m very sorry to disturb you, sir, but there’s a Miss Jorie Pearce here to see you. She says she’s a longtime friend.”

I watch as Bentley listens, but I can’t gauge what’s being said as his face remains blank. Finally, he says, “Very good, sir.”

I take this to mean I’ll be getting an escort to the penthouse suite, but Bentley replaces the receiver and says, “I’m sorry, Miss Pearce. But Mr. Walsh told me to tell you he’s busy and can’t receive you right now.”

My eyes narrow at Bentley. “I don’t believe you. Call back and let me talk to him.”

“I assure you, I just talked to him and that’s what he said.”

“Call him back,” I order as I point to the phone.

“I can’t,” he says almost with a wail. “If I do, he’ll fire me.”

Okay, that hits home. I don’t want to get anyone in trouble, so I say, “Fine. Give me just a moment.”

I take a few steps away from the concierge desk and pull my iPhone out. I shoot off a quick text to Micah. What’s Walsh’s phone number?

I wait a few moments, but I know Micah is awake in San Francisco at this hour. His phone is always on, and he never ignores a text from me.

He responds with the number before I can even start to tap my foot with impatience, adding on, Why?

I hate the lie, but I write back, Came to Vegas for the day. Thought I’d see if he could meet up for lunch. Haven’t seen him in years.

Cool, he writes back. Tell him I said, “what’s up, douche?”

I roll my eyes as I text back, Real mature. Love ya. Later.

After I save the number to my contacts, I open a new text to Walsh. Let me up to see you or I’m going straight back to The Wicked Horse to satisfy some further curiosities I have.

I hit send and then walk back to the concierge desk. I merely lean one elbow on it and watch Bentley with a silent smile. The phone rings about ten seconds after that.

Bentley’s eyes fly to mine as he listens, and then says, “Yes, sir. Right away.”

When he replaces the receiver, he says, “I’m to show you to the penthouse elevator.”

“Thank you, Bentley,” I say brightly.
