Blurb

It's been nine years since I last saw Dante Santiago. I always had the biggest crush on Dante. That wasn't easy either. He was always around, being that our families were so close. Dante was always the sweetest, most handsome guy I've ever seen. I was hoping to outgrow this childhood crush, but I've never stopped thinking about him. I'd hope that when I came home and saw him for the first time, those feelings would be done, or at least diminished, but no such luck. He is even more handsome than I remember. He was a fifteen year old boy when I left. Now he's a man, and hot as hell!

Demi Mitchell is, my best friend, Madoc's little cousin. Her father is Digger, the President of the motorcycle club we belong to, so I've known Demi her whole life, and I've always considered her family. I've missed her so much since she left for school. Now she stands before me, all grown up ... gorgeous.  And God help me , the last thing I want to think of her as is family. If Digger even suspected the thoughts I am having about his little girl, he would kill me, along with her brother, Drew, another one of the clubs senior officers. Not to mention her Uncle Frank, the Vice President, and of course Madoc. Hell, my own father wouldn't be too happy with me, either. But I can't stop thinking about her.

Can Demi and Dante fight the feelings they have for each other? Or will they defy their families and the MC to be together?

About the Author

I have always wanted to entertain people. To be a part of something that made people laugh or cry or just escape for a while, whether it was through television, film, or books. Three years ago I started writing a story during NANOWRIMO to get out of my own head. I feel in love with the characters and decided to turn that story into a novel for some friends who enjoyed my fan fiction in the past. Then one day I was friended by an editor who encouraged me to share my novel with others.

Release Blitz: One Contract by LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole







ONE CONTRACT LIVE!

Book 1 in The Game Series

99c!!



 BLURB

One contract.
Two guys.
Three Players.
Four strikes.
Five rules.
Six figures.
Seven days.
No safe words.
Are you game?



Review

One Contract starts off the Game Series, which reads like a serial to me.  Book one will continue into book two, and so forth.  

In book one, One Contract, we are introduced to the players, Tobias, Preston, and Ella and get a few glimpses into what to expect in coming books, though I already know that I'm nowhere close to fully guessing it all. 

Ella's down on her luck, she lost her man and her job withing quick succession. So when she finds herself mysteriously contacted for a job interview, quickly followed by a proposition from the CEO, she isn't sure what to expect, but the Dollar signs are flashing in her eyes.  The proposition appears simple - One week - a few rules, and she'll walk away with more money than she's dreamed of. 

Simple, however, it is not, because Ella doesn't know at all what to expect and as soon as she signs on the dotted line, she's not allowed to ask questions, but rather play the game as it rolls out or give up on the money. 

One Contract digs us right into the world of Preston and Tobias - two men who obviously know what they are doing, and have done it all before, but there's something about Ella and maybe just maybe the game is going to be different this time.  

The chemistry between these three is hot, and I enjoy the aspect of the unknown. After witnessing the first round of the game, I'm looking forward to what comes next and how much deeper these two men are going to drag sweet Ella.  I'm also curious to see where this game leads and what it all means.

Release Blast: Sprinkled with Love by


What does one do with a matchmaking cat named Romeo?


SPRINKLED WITH LOVE
Bachelor Bake-Off #3
Jennifer Faye
Released Feb 21, 2017
Tule Publishing


What does one do with a matchmaking cat named Romeo?

Spirited and beautiful, Jillian Parker is one of Marietta’s newest business owners. Still, her mother worries about Jillian’s bare ring finger. So in order to give her mother something else to fuss over, Jillian adopts a cat named Romeo. He turns out to be anything but a docile lap cat.

One snowy night, Romeo makes a break for it. With Jillian right on his heels, they have a near miss with a passing pickup driven by Avery Wainwright, one of Jillian’s closest friends. A rodeo accident has the sexy cowboy returning home to recuperate, and he’s not happy about it.

So when Avery finds himself lassoed into the Bachelor Bake-Off, he turns to the one person who has always helped him out—Jillian. But will teaching him to take chances outside of the show ring have them both discovering that their feelings for each other run much deeper than they ever imagined?










They climbed in the sleigh and then Avery covered Jillian with a heavy lap blanket. “Are you ready?”

She nodded, clutching the thermos. “I am now.”

And then they were off, gliding over the snow. The snow muffled the sounds. And though the moon was hidden behind the clouds, it was still bright out. As they made their way through the field, Avery glanced over at Jillian. She was nestled beneath the plaid blanket and still clutching the thermos. She looked stunning. He should have brought her out here a long time ago.

“What are you smiling about?”

Jillian’s voice drew him from his thoughts. “Who’s smiling?”

“You are and you know it. So what’s up?”

“Nothing. I’m just enjoying the evening.” It was so much more than that, but he really didn’t want to risk ruining this moment. He’d worked so hard to pull it together. He wanted to savor their time together.

For a while they glided along in silence. He had a particular destination in mind. It didn’t have a name. It was just a spot where you could see for miles. And at night, it was like visiting a planetarium with all of the stars twinkling overhead.

“Are you warm enough?” he asked.

She nodded from inside her big, fuzzy hood. “I’m perfect. This is amazing. Do you take the sleigh out very often?”

He shook his head. “This is my first time. I usually come out here on horseback.” He slowed the horse to a stop before turning to Jillian. “I wanted to do something special for you. A way to thank you. You’ve always been there for me and my family, whether it was helping me with the Bake-Off or being the best nanny in the whole world.”

“You…you really think that?”

He’d obviously done a lousy job of communicating his thoughts in the past. He would have to do better going forward.

“I’m sorry I didn’t make that clear before.” He stared into her eyes. “I really appreciate everything you’ve done for me and my family.”

His gaze dipped to her lips. They were shiny and full. And he was overwhelmed with the desire to kiss her again. So what was holding him back?

They were all alone on this snowy evening. And as he’d come to discover while he was planning this evening, it was a very romantic setting. If he were ever to have a chance with her, it would start beneath the starlit sky. But should he risk it? Should he put himself out there again?

It wasn’t like he was asking her to marry him. It was a kiss—a simple, no-strings-attached kiss. It was a starting point.

He rested his arm over the back of the sleigh. His heart started to pound hard in his chest. He’d kissed a number of girls over the years on the rodeo circuit and he’d never put this much thought into it. But none of them had meant as much to him as Jillian. He leaned toward her.

Suddenly Jillian raised the thermos between them. “Hot chocolate?”

He settled back in his seat. Had he read the signs wrong? Was he that rusty where women were concerned?

Review Tour: Out of Love by RC Boldt

 
Synopsis
Foster Kavanaugh, former Navy SEAL, knows what it’s like to be the top dog, the man in charge, the one calling the shots. Now that he’s running his own security consulting firm, not much has changed.
   Except the curvy blonde he hired as his office manager.
 Noelle Davis has been through the damn ringer. Swearing off men after escaping a toxic relationship, she’s grateful for a fresh start—new job included. Except her job isn’t tranquil and calm. In fact, it’s quite the opposite because her boss is the most infuriating man on the planet.
  And, not to mention, sexy as hell.
 Foster has limits. Rules. No attachments allowed because he doesn’t do love—and Noelle Davis foiled that plan and took a red pen to his list of rules. With her smart mouth and quick witted banter, he found the woman beginning to creep past his defenses. When circumstances put Noelle in a perilous position, the first person to come to her rescue is none other than Foster Kavanaugh. She gets to see the man in action—not as her aggravating boss, but the man who will stop at nothing to keep her safe. The same man who makes her want to reconsider her self-imposed embargo of men. The man she wants to get to know now that she’s seen another side of him. The man who makes her want…more. But is more possible when you're OUT OF LOVE?

I've read a few RC Boldt books before, and what I love about them is that they always suck me in because the characters are compelling and give me a story that I can fall into quickly and stay hooked on. 

When Noelle took her job with Foster - she wasn't exactly honest with him - she didn't fudge about her qualifications, but rather about her past and the little fact that she was running from something in it. The same thing from her past that's caused her to be off men for the foreseable future.  Unfortunately for Noelle, the past she wants so badly to forget and move past - isn't so easily forgotton or giving up on her.  

When Foster hired Noelle, he did so because she was qualified for the job, but also because there was something about her.  Something he knew he couldn't ever explore, something he knew made her a woman who was so much better than himself and what he could offer.  But when he starts noticing something off about her behavior, and then discovers the danger she's in from the past - Foster can do nothing but step in to help. 

I loved the banter and connection between Foster and Noelle - even from the start, you could tell they had quite a friendship and deeper connection.  Though they were both fighting it, the truth was clear as day.  That type of connection and friendship really makes a wonderful foundation for an amazing relationship so it was no surprise to me that it grew into something more.  

The side characters throughout the book, most notably Foster's sister just added an extra something to the story.  They added humor, they added emotion, and more they just made the book more relatable.  
I reallly enjoyed the journey we took with Noelle and Foster within the pages of Out of Love, it wasn't your typical easy story, no clear road to romance, but rather one that took work, and patience, and a whole lot more.  Once they finally give in a bit, not fully mind you, to the tempation of the other, they find that it's more than they ever expected, but yet they both are still holding back one important thing.  Once they let it all on they line, can they continue on as they have been, can their connection withstand the knowledge they've been hiding from each other?

Blurb:
One accident - a freaking car crash. That’s all it took to send my life into a tailspin. Little did I know that out of the wreckage, everything would fall into place. I would get everything I had ever worked for.
Little did I know that I would find the woman who would cross check my life, flipping everything upside down.
Even though she's melting the ice that surrounds my heart, I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop. Will I ever be able to find my footing or am I destined to stay pinned against the boards?
Note: Cross Checked is the second book in the Shots On Goal Series. It can be read as a standalone, has a happily ever after, and does not have a cliffhanger. There are character crossovers from Hat Trick (book one in the series) which is also a standalone with a HEA and no cliffhanger.

Review

Cross Checked was a great addition to this series, delivering us the story of Karla and Brayden.  Though we got a small peak that something was brewing between these two in Hat Trick, Cross checked brings us their whole story.

You know how they say everyone comes into our lives for a reason, that some moments define out lives more than others, well that's true in this love story.  Karla and Brayden met in a random series of events, but something stood out between enough to remember each other when they bump into one another later and decide to set up another meeting.  The connection between them is palpable from their second meeting onward.

I really enjoyed how Mazzola used the intersecting moments in their lives to bring these two together, how it proved that a true connection will find a way - almost as if fate steps in.  Brayden suffered a lot in his life, and at the time he met Karla for the first time, she was a beacon at that moment, someone who gave him exactly what he needed in that moment, and as such though she wasn't forefront in his mind, he never forgot her or what she'd done for him (and his sister).   It really clicked for Brayden how much she'd done for him at that time when he ran into her again and realized he'd never really thanked her.

Karla hasn't had it easy in relationships either, in fact the brief period of time when she'd met Brayden, as she took care of his sister in the hospital, was not a good time in her personal life. When she meets him again, and he asks for a chance to take her out, she's all in.

Their relationship moved at a steady pace for the most part, with a few moments feeling a little rushed, but their connection was there, as was the chemistry.  The story was a quick read, but it flowed well and their connection was strong. I would have liked to see a little more time to the story, to watch things develop more, but overall I enjoyed their story.  Karla and Brayden found something in each other but there were things that they needed to work through to make a real go of a relationship. Can they work it out? Read Cross- checked to find out if the hockey player can fit this unexpected woman into his life on and off the ice.

Cover Reveal: All the Frogs in Manhattan By Carrie Aarons




Title: All the Frogs in Manhattan
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 5, 2017



Blurb

You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?

Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and a Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.


In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.

The meathead player.
The mommy's boy.
The namedropper.
The cheapskate.

If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.

But what happens when the frog, who was never supposed to turn into a prince, kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.





Author Bio

Author of romance novels such as Red Card and the Captive Heart Duet, Carrie Aarons writes sexy, swoony and sarcastic characters who won't get out of her head until she puts them down on a page.

Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book. She loves spinning tales that include dapper men, women with attitude, and the occasional hunky athlete.

When she isn't in what her husband calls a "writing coma", Carrie is freeing up her jam-packed DVR, starting her latest DIY project, or planning her next travel adventure. She lives in New Jersey with her husband, who is more than happy to watch sports while his wife plots love stories.

Genre: Romantic Comedy/Suspense Date of release: Mar 27, 2017 Cover by Makeready Designs

Add the book to Goodreads

Synopsis:

Everybody dreams of a Hawaiian Vacation… They sell you on the drinks with little umbrella’s, dolphin watching, and long walks on the beach. Which probably happens, if you’re that lucky schmuck living out your dream with your destination wedding, but if you’re a fish out of water PI like me, there’s no time for relaxing because trouble is never far behind. Instead of cocktails, I ended up dealing with the seedy underbelly of The Big Island. And, I didn’t see one damn dolphin while undercover on a boat which was spilling over with drug dealers, Kingpins, and Pedophiles. Elin and Elena think Cade's family are the coolest people outside of Snapchat, but it’s hard to meet the parents when your boyfriend is in his late thirties and has never had a serious relationship. I’d never missed my girls so much in my life, but Amy May, Bea, and Carmen are all dealing with issues of their own, and can’t come to my rescue. The only thing that may help me with this “vacation” is if I could get Lei’d with Cupcakes. WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS FOUL LANGUAGE, SEX, SOME VIOLENCE, AND SHENANIGANS. IF NONE OF THAT BOTHERS YOU, GRAB A CUPCAKE AND READ ON!

  EXCERPT: When it was our turn to disembark, Cade pulled out suitcases down from the overhead compartment, and we started off the plane. First Cade, with his well-worn leather backpack slung over one shoulder and a ratty Army green duffel in his hand. Then Elin and Elena, with their Harry Potter and Star Wars rolling bags, and finally, me, trailing behind with my new hard case roller, wondering why I’d been in such a hurry to land when all I wanted to do in that moment was run back to the plane. With every step closer to the arrival area, my stomach grew tight and my buzz started to fade. By the time we stepped out of the corridor into the open space, filled with happy sounds and tons of people, I was ready to upchuck the six tiny bottles of vodka that had seemed like such a good idea in flight. I looked up in time to see a tall woman hugging Cade tightly, while a handsome, older version of Cade was placing lei’s around the twins’ necks. I plastered a smile on my face and as I joined the group, all eyes turned to me. Cade’s mother’s face lit up, as she looked to him and said, “Nice job, Hiapo, she’s got great hips.”
