My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have enjoyed the prior books in this series and always find myself easily drawn into the stories Melanie Moreland creates.

There wasn’t a major surprise in this book, but it took absolutely nothing away from the story for me. I think most of the surprises that really made this book came from Reid. I could not help but fall in love with this character.

Reid and Becca are an unlikely pairing and I thoroughly enjoyed the push and pull between them. This story had a great balance between humor, emotions and chemistry and pulled me in from the first page with great character connection. Their complex, complicated personalities perfectly complete each other’s.  It just took the right woman to help him see he was much more than an ex-con with no family.

This is a story about self-worth, friendship and family. You’ll meet a lot of characters, known from the other books in the Vested Interest series. Bentley, Maddox and Aiden gave Reid’s life meaning by giving him a chance to prove himself. He values their trust, their faith in him.

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

Excerpt:

We spent the entire day together. I worked on the system, with Becca acting as my assistant. More than once, she rose up on her toes for a kiss. More than once, I had her pressed to the wall, devouring her mouth. It was the best install I had ever done.

“You are such a good kisser,” she murmured against my mouth. “How can a virgin be so good at kissing?”

Pleased she was enjoying my caresses, I grinned. “I have kissed girls and women, but, as I said, I haven’t gone beyond that.” I cupped her face, dragging my lips across her cheek to her sensitive earlobe. “I was waiting for the right person.”

“And I’m that person?”

“Yes,” I stated with conviction, dropping another kiss to her mouth. “You are.” I ran my fingers over my lips, then grabbed my drill.

“Why do you do that?”

“Do what?”

“You press your fingers on your mouth every time we kiss.”

“Oh, ah…” I stalled, looking over her shoulder. I felt heat prickle my neck.

“Tell me,” she insisted. “I want to know.”

“I like how it feels when you kiss me. I guess I’m sort of sealing you into me. Keeping your taste locked into my mouth.”

She stared at me, blinking and silent.

“Is that weird? It’s weird. I’m sorry.”

I wasn’t prepared when she launched herself at me. The drill flew one way; we hit the wall behind me, a mass of entangled arms and legs, her mouth on mine, hard and passionate. I slid down the wall to the floor, taking her with me. She was ferocious in her intensity, her kisses deep and possessive.

“You say the most erotic words,” she groaned. “Sealing my taste into you?”

“So, not weird?” I moaned as she kissed her way down my neck.

“No, not weird.” She hovered over me, her dark hair falling like a waterfall around us. “You turn me on like no man has ever done, Reid. Ever.” She kissed me again.

I was good with that.

Muse (Manhattan #3) by Katy Evans : Release Blitz

MUSE-SBPRBANNER-RB.jpg

Muse by Katy Evans


Publication Date: September 14, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Muse_Amazon.jpg

Synopsis:

A brand new sizzling standalone contemporary romance by New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

It was supposed to just be a quick trip to Manhattan.

My best friend was heartbroken. She needed support, and I needed inspiration.

I hoped to love the city. Bustling. Crazy. Inspiring New York.

But I ended up at the airport, heading home in the same condition that I arrived.

In a rut.

Add to all that, missing my flight and losing my laptop—the laptop, where the Best Love Story Ever sat on my hard drive.

Enter Noah Steele. Eerily familiar. Movie star. Heartthrob. Sultry romeo with bedroom eyes.

(But we’re not going there.)

He missed his flight too.

Noah is so smoldering, lip-bitingly hot, he’s not taken seriously as an actor, and is struggling to launch his career in New York.

He’s only ever had superficial girlfriends, so he’s having trouble showing true passion in his acting—the same challenge I’m having with this book.

When we met, we didn’t know that our connection would bring us the change we’d been craving.

That we’d be the very thing the other needed and didn’t know.

Each other’s muse.

*This book is a complete standalone and no previous reading is necessary to enjoy.

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a sweet story and a quick read. Katy Evans is one of my favorite authors and she surprised me with this cute and funny contemporary romance. I loved the witty, sexy and flirty banter, the emotional pull of two strangers afraid to put their hearts on the line. I loved the characters, their quirks and insecurities, their honesty. They really connect on an emotional level, not just physical. Their romance could be fleeting because it’s instant. Even though I’m not a huge fan of insta-love, I found that it was done well in this story. And I love when two very different characters, who are destined to be together, but don’t realize it yet, meet in an unusual setting, like being stuck at an airport.

The heroine, Becka, is a writer. She hoped that visiting New York would cure her from her writer’s block, but it didn’t work.  She is an adorable character, with deep insecurities and suffering from panic attacks. There’s something entirely sweet and innocent about her. She is on her way back home when she misses her flight and, to make matters worse, her laptop is stolen.

Noah Steele is an A-list movie star, trying to stay incognito. He is genuine and gentle. And of course, he is hot. He has spent a few days in New York, hoping his career would get a boost. He likes that Becka doesn’t recognize him, he can be himself with her.

Becka makes up romances, she doesn’t live them. Their supposedly short-lived relationship is an escape from the real world, they live in their own happy bubble.  I enjoyed their time together and was really rooting for them. They have an undeniable connection, they are both incredibly endearing and just so darn likable.

While neither of these two are looking for a relationship, they can’t deny the strong attraction between them and what starts eventually as a fling quickly becomes so much more for both of them.

Overall, Muse is a delightful read, ideal for all those days you need just a little emotional boost to carry on with your normal routine. Books in the Manhattan series are intertwined, but Muse can be read as a standalone.

Many thanks to the author and Social Butterfly PR for my copy of this book

“I ABSOLUTELY LOVED Jace and Faith’s story. Seriously, the BEST story! 5++++ Stars!”

~Lys, I Love Story Time

ALJMoreofYou525x8_MEDIUM

TITLE: MORE OF YOU

Audible: http://smarturl.it/MOYAudio2

A message from A.L. Jackson :

“The first stand-alone novel in my new CONFESSIONS OF THE HEART series. Oh my gosh, I have to confess, MORE OF YOU absolutely stole my heart.

Writing Jace and Faith’s story was one of my best experiences as an author. Their story poured out of me, their chemistry so intense and palpable that the words burned inside and came to life in a way I’d never imagined!

It’s intense.

It’s sexy.

It’s suspenseful.

It’s packed with all the feels.

It’s everything and more that I’d hoped it be.

I fell so hard for MORE OF YOU, and I know you will, too.

Are you ready for my newest romance?”

Insta Story 2

My daddy warned me never to fall for a boy like Jace Jacobs . . .

The second I saw him walk through the door, I knew he was trouble.

A gorgeous rebel with a bad attitude and a huge chip on his shoulder.

My heart warned me. I didn’t listen. I saw something protective and good beneath the fierce, tough exterior.

I fell hard and fast.

He promised we’d be together forever, and then left me with a broken heart.

Now, ten years later, Jace Jacobs is standing at my door.

Sexier than he’s ever been.

Provocative and commanding.

Successful and powerful.

The man I always knew he would become.

But I promised myself I’d never lose my heart to him again.

Even time couldn’t dim our chemistry. One glance of his intense eyes, and I become weak. One brush of his hand, and he brings me to my knees.

Little do I know, Jace holds the key to everything I’ve lost and everything that threatens my future.

Now he will either save me, or he will break me all over again . . .

More of You – a Confessions of the Heart second-chance, stand-alone romance

My Review

Rating : 4.5 Stars

This story is told in dual point of view, with timeline jumps to the past and then back into present day. Each segment of this emotionally gripping story was a buildup. The way the author worked in the angst was brilliant. Nothing is told or forced, everything is felt. I loved that this story just flowed so perfectly. It is not a dark read, but don’t mistake that for lack of emotion or tension. This story definitely brought out the emotions in me. This book was long, but it didn’t feel long, the story hooked me in pretty quickly.

Jace Jacobs was a troubled and mysterious boy, the town outcast and Faith’s first love until he walked out of her life. Fast forward 10 years, Jace is very different from the boy he was, he is polished and has built a business empire from the ground up. He has dealt with the circumstances he was placed in as best he could. Faith made him strive to be better and change his life. She used to always see the good in him, but now she doesn’t trust him anymore. Faith is Jace’s only weakness, he can’t stay away from her. As she is threatened and trying to get through tough times in her life, he is willing to make sacrifices to protect her and her daughter.

These characters are easy to love and attach yourself to. You want Jace and Faith to find happiness. When their journey finally unfolds, you feel immensely satisfied as a reader to have reached their happy ending. It takes a while, a past full of tears and regret, deception and many mistakes to get there, but in the end it seems everything is just how it should be.

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

The Perfect Duet by Meghan Quinn : Release Blitz

The Left Side Of Perfect – Release Day – August 30

For better or for worse,’til death do us part . . .

The better captured me; she’s who stole my heart.

And made me realize I couldn’t live without this woman.

The worse of her took my breath away–kicked me when I was down and twisted me into a million knots.

When I first met her, I thought she was someone I would never see again.

The second time I ran into her, it was a random coincidence.

The third?

I didn’t know it at the time, but she was the girl I was going to marry.

But life isn’t always perfect. You have to take the better and the worse–even if it means giving her up, having her slip between your fingers, and letting her walk away.

I’m getting married.

This is forever, ’til death do us part.

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love angst, reads that make you feel, a story where you get so involved you can’t help but be affected and consumed by what you are reading and that was certainly the case with this first part of the duet. There’s something tremendous to be said for a book that pulls those emotions out of you without ever making you feel like you’re being manipulated.

I adored and swooned over Colby.  He just has this effortless, magnetic charm that made him impossible not to love. He is thoughtful, confident, caring. His story with Ryan has the perfect balance of friendship, laughter and sexual tension. Their chemistry is really a thing of beauty. The pacing and development of their relationship was perfect! The buildup, the tension!  It was real. It was natural. It was perfect. It teased me. It hooked me.

And … true to Meghan Quinn’s previous books, her work could never be predictable.  This book is an emotionally dangerous rollercoaster ride! Colby and Ryan are two people who are meant to be, but Colby doesn’t seem to see it. I have to admit I did get a little frustrated with him and it was hard because he had such a rough past and was such a wonderful, dreamy hero.

I’m not sure what will be the focus of the second part of the duet, but I have my hopes and I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I’m right. I definitely want a happy ending for Colby and Ryan.

The Right Side Of Forever – Release Day August 31

In sickness and in health, to love and to cherish . . .

It sounds so simple, to love someone unconditionally.

To give them your heart.

So why is she slowly eating away at my soul with every unanswered phone call, every unread text, and every door left unopened?

She said yes, and yet, in order for her to be with me . . . I need to let her go.

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This duet completely sucked me in and riveted me to the pages, the angst was superb. It was emotionally draining, but that was not a bad thing. Quite the contrary in fact.

I don’t want to give away too much of the plot, except that I was thoroughly engaged in the last part of the story, was dying for Ryan to get all that she longed for and was hoping for Colby to finally see her as his soulmate. It seemed to me that it took him forever to see it. These two were so good together. I felt like they each ‘got’ the other one, they completed each other.

This book made me smile, it made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me sigh. It brought out all the emotions. And when a book can do that for me, it’s a winner. What a wonderful job Meghan Quinn did, I did not want this story to end! The writing is smart and witty and every single character in the story is refreshing and incredibly unique. They felt so real to me, so fully developed into real people. And how beautiful it was, when Colby and Ryan finally found their way to their happy ending!

There isn’t a doubt in my mind that I will be reading whatever Meghan Quinn writes next!

Many thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for my copy of this duet!

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Synopsis

Love left me off its to-do list.

I date. I’m all for giving guys a chance. I’ve just never met the one.

Until on a spring morning in the English countryside, a tall, dark stranger emerges from the mist.

Logan Steele is all tousled hair, hard chest and lips so perfect I want to reach out and touch them just to check they’re real. I’m sure that’s a thunderclap of chemistry I feel between us.

Did I mention he’s an Earl with a self-made fortune?

A billionaire who works tirelessly for charity?

And he’s so hot, watching him is like staring at the sun.

But like I said, love isn’t rooting for me.

When I find out Logan Steele is out to destroy everything I’ve dedicated my life to protect, the chemistry disappears and the hope that had blossomed my chest turns to rage.

It no longer matters that he quickens my pulse just saying my name, weakens my knees with a single touch and that he might just be the greatest kisser that ever lived.

I might believe in love but Logan Steele is definitely not the one.

A standalone romance.

My Review

Rating : 4 out of 5 Stars

A delightful, funny and sexy tale of true love and old English estates.

Louise Bay writes with such vitality that all the characters are instantly brought to life. This story focuses on the characters feelings and it gave me a warm feeling from the first word. The hero, Logan Steele has built a business empire. And yet buying his grandmother’s childhood home back has been his lifetime’s ambition. His new property borders on Darcy Westbury’s family estate. The land has been in her family for generations and she feels it’s her responsibility to maintain it for future Westbury generations. She is afraid her charming new neighbor is a weekender with more money than sense, who has no intention to take part in village life.

The character development is terrific in this book. I very much enjoyed reading about the irresistible attraction between these two seemingly opposite characters. I absolutely loved the sexual tension between them throughout.

Darcy fully intends to defeat Logan’s plans, to make the village into a tourist destination. She enjoys her life in the peaceful and picturesque village where she grew up and wants to preserve it from the likes of Logan Steele who see its beauty as a business opportunity.

As the story unfolds and the reader gets to know both Darcy and Logan, my initial impressions of them changed. Logan starts out as something of a cold and enigmatic character, often appearing arrogant. Darcy has an air of mystery to her, she is strong willed and yet at times appears quite vulnerable.

Darcy isn’t impressed with Logan’s money or status and yet he turns out to be a very different man than she expected. He has a terrific sense of humor, he is willing to listen to other points of view, he is honest and considerate. Logan loves that she challenges him at every turn, it makes for a refreshing change. Their banter was hilarious at times.

The Earl of London was a sexy enemies-to-lovers story with a few twists and turns, a mysterious, charming and misunderstood hero and a delightful heroine who deserves to find happiness. This story is set in the world of “Duke of Manhattan” but can be read as a standalone.

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