HOTD_ blog tour square

Release Date: March 12, 2019

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes the stunning conclusion to the Forge Trilogy. In this final volume, ruthless billionaire Jericho Forge faces his toughest challenge. To emerge victorious, he’ll have to give up the one thing he’s never offered a woman—his heart.

MMHeartoftheDevilBookCover5x8_MEDIUMIt started as a game. She was nothing but my pawn.

But I was quick to see the error in my ways, and now she is everything I never knew I needed.

The value of a woman like India Baptiste is beyond measure.

But the problem with being a man like me? I’ve already screwed this up, and there’s no guarantee India will take me on for one last bet.

I’ll do whatever I have to do. Drop to my knees and offer her the only thing I have left. The one thing that’s only ever been hers—the heart of the devil.

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

With all the drama at the end of the last book, I couldn’t wait to see how Meghan March would work everything out and I was not disappointed! I was once again captivated from page one. The conclusion of India and Forge’s story was compelling and had me on the edge of my seat most of the time. In the end, things played out exactly the way they needed to, taking into account that friends can become enemies, and enemies can become friends.

India’s world is tipped upside down, but she is ready to fight for the person who has become the center of her world. She is loyal and relentless, no matter what life throws at her she stays strong for those she loves. Forge’s determination is his salvation, but he is full of guilt about the past. Together these two have great chemistry and the desire to finally do the right thing. Their mutual love gives them the power to heal and reach for the life they both deserve. They really bring out the best in each other.

The conclusion of the Forge trilogy was intense, fast paced and utterly satisfying!

Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!

My honest review is based on an advanced reader copy of Heart of the Devil.

Eighty-One Nights by Georgia Cates #covereveal

Eighty-One Nights (Beautiful Illusions Duet #1) by Georgia Cates
Release Date: April 9th

Add to Goodreads:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/44284142-eighty-one-nights

Blurb:

Beautiful, penniless American girl meets handsome, wealthy Scotsman.

Sounds like the beginning of a fairy-tale romance?

It’s not.

This story begins with a contract.

And an exchange of money.

A lot of money.

An angel perches nervously on one shoulder.

A devil lounges smugly on my other.

And even that dark little bastard is leery of what I’m doing.

Maxwell Hutcheson wants the girlfriend experience.

All of it.

And I’m going to give it to him.

I’m not supposed to enjoy being his whore.

I’m also not supposed to fall in love with him.

But I do. Both.

When our contract expires, I will walk away.

Because I have to.

But he’ll always have a piece of me.

I’ll mask my sorrow with a smile.

I’ll hide my love with indifference

… all while it’s killing me softly.

A fairy-tale romance.

It isn’t mine to have.

And this man I’ve come to love so dearly isn’t my happily ever after.

About Eighty-One Nights:

While the characters from Eighty-One Nights are entirely new, their storyline is a combination of fresh material and carefully selected themes, scenes, and settings from The Beauty Series, The Sin Trilogy, Dear Agony, and Indulge. This is intentional. I chose some of my favorite elements from previous releases and interjected them into Hutch and Lou’s story. Let’s call it a “story fusion” between our old favorites and new material. This work was briefly released under a pen name and was titled The Girlfriend Experience.

 

 

About the Author:
Georgia resides in rural Mississippi with her wonderful husband, Jeff, and their two beautiful daughters. She spent fourteen years as a labor and delivery nurse before she decided to pursue her dream of becoming an author and hasn’t looked back yet.

When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing. When she’s being domestic, she’s listening to her music and visualizing scenes for her current work in progress. Every story coming from her always has a song to inspire it.

Lady Derring Takes a Lover by Julie Anne Long #newrelease #excerpt @avonbooks

A mistress. A mountain of debt. A mysterious wreck of a building.

Delilah Swanpoole, Countess of Derring, learns the hard way that her husband, “Dear Dull Derring,” is a lot more interesting—and perfidious—dead than alive. It’s a devil of an inheritance, but in the grand ruins of the one building Derring left her, are the seeds of her liberation. And she vows never again to place herself at the mercy of a man.

But battle-hardened Captain Tristan Hardy is nothing if not merciless. When the charismatic naval hero tracks a notorious smuggler to a London boarding house known as the Rogue’s Palace, seducing the beautiful, blue-blooded proprietress to get his man seems like a small sacrifice.

They both believe love is a myth. But a desire beyond reason threatens to destroy the armor around their hearts. Now a shattering decision looms: Will Tristan betray his own code of honor…or choose a love that might be the truest thing he’s ever known?

Excerpt

She’d taken two steps when he said, his voice raised only a little, “Lady Derring . . . something puzzles me.”

She halted. Closed her eyes.

Took a shuddering breath for courage.

Turned back to him. From the relatively safe distance of three feet, she said, “Surely not. We’ve established you know everything.”

His smile was small and patient. “You seem to excel at so very much here at The Grand Palace on the Thames. Yet you can’t seem to disguise how much you want me.”

Divorced. Single dad. Traded to a losing squad.

Cheated on, betrayed, exposed.

My perfect life blew up in my face and I’m still picking up the pieces.

The last thing I need is her.

A wildflower. A storm. A woman I can’t resist.

Lotus DuPree is a kick to my gut and a wrench in my plans

from the moment our eyes meet.

I promised myself I wouldn’t trust a woman again,

A warrior. A baller. The one they call Gladiator.

Kenan Ross charged into my life smelling all good, looking even better and snatching my breath from the moment we met.

The last thing I need is him.

I’m working on me. Facing my pain and conquering my demons.

I’ve seen what trusting a man gets you.

But he just keeps coming for me.

Keeps knocking down my defenses and stealing my excuses

one by one.

He never gives up, and now…I’m not sure I want him to.

 My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

For the most part, I enjoyed this story, it was one of those books that once you start reading you don’t want to put down. It started great, I loved the way this story jumps right into the action while also building the intense chemistry and connection between Luca and Gretchen. Both of them were likable characters. While I enjoyed most of their story, I did feel that some threads were resolved too easily. I would have expected more angst. In addition, I’m not a huge fan of OW drama.

Two words can define Luca King : intense and broken.  He is married, but his baby girl Ella is his only reason for happiness. He allowed himself to be vulnerable and his wife hurt him deeply. He feels undone and trust is hard for him. Gretchen gives him a reason to believe again. From a romance perspective, Luca and Gretchen are well matched. I was a bit disappointed with Luca in how he handled matters with his wife, though.

I liked Gretchen. She is conflicted. She is attracted to Luca but she doesn’t like that he makes her into a person she doesn’t want to be. Gretchen and Luca have an intense relationship with great chemistry and some incredibly sexy scenes. I was captivated and intrigued by them. Luca’s world is dangerous, he seems to have lost his resolve to turn his back on the mafia world he was born into. I loved seeing the two of them together and could tell that their feelings for one another were genuine.

Many thanks to the author and Give Me Books Promotions for my copy of this book.

Excerpt

Luca’s hand pulls away from my chin, and he takes my glass, putting it on the table.

“How I see it is you need to stop assuming the worst and trust me to care for you, and the only way for us to do that is to make sure you get what you need, over and over, until you take it for granted.”

He’s talking about more than just sex, even though I love the “over and over” part. I didn’t trust him; I prolonged this moment as much as his stubbornness did. But I did it by way of mistrust, assuming he wouldn’t do what we both needed.

“So, you want to teach me a lesson in trust?”

The desire in my voice gives away my readiness.

He nods.

“I paid a helluva price almost losing you. What price should you pay for not trusting me? Huh?”

The tumbler he’s holding runs up my leg, and I can feel the coolness through my jeans. Luca leans close to my cheek and whispers, “Choose your fate. Do you want to be fucked or loved, Angel?”

I close my eyes, knowing they aren’t mutually exclusive, but for us, they have very specific meanings. He knows I need the connection between us, the aggression and anger we’ve both felt to play about in the sheets.

His breath is warm against my skin as he keeps whispering.

“Maybe we play your favorite game, Angel. I’ll hunt you…here.”

He brings the glass between my legs and runs it up, rolling it over where my clit is throbbing. My breath hitches.

“Do you trust me?” he asks seductively.

He sets his drink down and begins to gather my T-shirt, tugging it up.

I look around, worried about being caught.

“Luca, someone could catch us. The wall is all glass.”

The minute I say it, I know I failed my lesson. Luca doesn’t stop or change expression as he pulls my shirt up and over my head, leaving me exposed in just my bra.

“Take them off, or I will,” he directs in his deep gravel, indicating my jeans.

I’m not a submissive girl. But when he does this, gets sexually dominant, I feel understood. I’m a powerful woman, and I need a man who can handle me, break me, and make me feel devoured. Luca was made for me. He crosses his arms over his chest.

“The longer I wait, the longer you wait to come. Get ’em off,” he growls. Holy hell, I’m wet. Rough Luca is my favorite Luca.

I reach slowly for my button and pull it open, challenging his patience by lowering the zipper only a fraction.

“You know, I’m not wearing underwear,” I lie.

The thought of being fucked out here where someone could catch us makes me nervous, even if I’m supposed to trust him.

“When I pull off these jeans, everyone will see what’s yours…you sure you want to share?” My voice is a purr, and he bites his lip, gripping his bulge.

I know I’ve won. No fucking way is he willing to share me with prying eyes.

Right as I feel victorious, Luca shakes his head and says, “So fucking stubborn,” then grabs me by the waistband of my jeans and jerks me forward.

“Luca!” I yelp and laugh.

He pushes his hand down the front of my jeans, and I gasp, silenced. Grabbing my tiny lace G-string, along with the few hairs I have down below, he tugs me closer, and the sensation makes my pussy slick with need.

My back arches from being pulled forward.

“Little liar,” he whispers knowingly, and I whimper.

Pleasure grips my body as his hold tightens.

“You definitely need a lesson in trust. Maybe I’ll take it out on your ass or maybe in your ass. Here’s the game, baby: I catch you, I pick.”

His hand retreats as he takes a step away from me.

I’m breathless. My entire body is on fire. This man speaks to every filthy fucking piece of me.

“What’s the second choice? What if you don’t catch me?” I ask hungrily.

A slow smile grows on his gorgeous face. Luca takes out his phone from his pocket and presses a button, laughing to himself.

The light that glowed from inside the house begins to fade as heavy black shades roll down, and I hear a click as the door locks. He was never going to let me be seen. But now, I’m on my own.

Diary of a Bad Boy by Meghan Quinn #newrelease #bookreview

diary MQ

From USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn comes a forbidden romance about an Irish rebel who falls in love with the wrong girl.

Dear Diary,

I might have gotten myself into a wee bit of trouble—and I’m not talking about the “court mandated community service,” or “therapy sessions from bashing a bloke in the head” kind of trouble.

I wish it were that simple.

Nope. I’m talking about the “falling in love with one of my client’s daughters,” kind of trouble . . . The kind of problem I can’t talk my way out of when the truth gets out.

How I ended up with her phone is a long story—and when she called to get it back, I took things a bit too far. One innocent exchange wound up leading to so much more.

Fun, new, and totally immune to my charm, Sutton is different. And I had no idea she was the daughter of Foster Green.

Blame it on the dark colored stout running through my veins, pushing me toward one bad decision after another. Pushing me toward her even though I know right from wrong; even though she’s my client’s daughter.

Dating her might be the best or worst decision I’ve ever made. Only time, whiskey, and one more roll around the mattress with her will tell.

Roark

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This story was really cute and characterized by Meghan Quinn’s irresistible and unique brand of humor. In a lot of ways this is a conventional romantic comedy, but it is the refreshing approach that got me more invested with each chapter.

The characters are believable and relatable, they are perfectly written. They mature and grow a lot as the story unfolds. The book focuses on their development.
Meghan Quinn skillfully makes you fall in love with them. I think both are truly good people who, like any of us, have their own insecurities and fears. Their relationship is filled with humor, funny moments, teasing, bickering, great chemistry, with natural easiness, trust and without any stupid misunderstanding.

Roark is rough around the edges. His reckless, bad boy behavior was not so flattering at first. He struggles with feelings of inner rage and frustration. I loved the way he was able to heal through expressing his emotions and allowing himself to truly feel. His protectiveness and his sweet gestures won me over.

Sutton was innocent, bubbly and thoughtful, and while love did change her, it only made her into a better, stronger version of someone that was already pretty awesome and adorable.

Over texts and chance encounters, Roark and Sutton start developing feelings for one another. I enjoyed the witty conversations and exchanges between the two of them, their playfulness. Their story had the perfect balance of humor, emotions and chemistry. I really enjoyed reading it! I hope you will too.

Many thanks to the author for my copy of this book!
