Release Blitz: Tempt by Melanie Harlow

You’ve heard the story about the wedding planner who falls for the groom?
Well, this is the one where she falls for his father.
And that groom? He’s my ex.

TEMPT, an all-new scorching hot age gap, forbidden, small town romance, featuring a plus-sized heroine and her ex’s irresistible dad from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is now available!

I didn’t realize who the gruff, gorgeous older man was the night he rescued me from a creep in a Manhattan hotel bar. All I knew was that a hot, bearded stranger with a protective streak showed up right when I needed a reminder that real gentlemen still exist.

(Although he left his manners behind after asking me up to his room.)

It was the hottest night of my life, but I never thought I’d see the former Navy SEAL again.

Imagine my surprise at the rehearsal dinner one week later, when my sexy one-night stand is introduced as the father of the groom. Even more surprising? That temptation we felt in New York was no fluke.

In public, we pretend there’s nothing between us.

In private, we can’t keep our hands off each other.

The situation is beyond complicated. Zach never even knew he’d fathered a child until recently, and he wants to earn his son’s trust and respect. As for me, I’m looking for a man who wants to start a family, and Zach has made it clear he’s not that man. He’s fifteen years older, newly divorced, and he lives across the country.

But no matter how many times we draw the line, we keep crossing it.

Nothing so wrong should ever feel so right.

RELEASE BLITZ of The Perfects by Rachel Van Dyken

Everything was perfect.
Until it wasn’t.

The Perfects by Rachel Van Dyken is now live!

Find out what happens when their perfect image breaks in #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken’s steamy new adult romance.

Everything was perfect.
Until it wasn’t.

Until my family took on a foster girl and placed her across the hall from me. A charity case to look good and a person who should have never existed in my world.
I kissed her to get her to stop talking, and then I kissed her again because I liked the taste of her words–I liked her.
It was our secret until we got caught–that night changed everything.

We became strangers living in the same house, seeing the same ghosts of our past mistakes, but I can’t stop thinking about us, about those forbidden moments.
I pretend to hate her, I tell her I’ll never forgive her, and then Quinn, my ex-best friend, steps into the picture. I can’t tell if he actually likes her or if he has a death wish and just likes pissing me off, but what do I say? Stay away from my foster sister?
She’s mine?
I’ve already had her?
Saying that to him would expose what we were and ruin everything.
We’re all three of us living multiple lies, and eventually, I know our ivory tower of perfection is going to come crashing down.

He knows my secrets.
I know his.
And now she knows both.

She wants.
He wants.
But I always—always get what I want.

And what I want is the girl, no matter what it may cost me.

REVIEW..Promise We Meant to Keep by Monica Murphy

Promises We Meant to Keep: A Lancaster Novel by Monica Murphy
452 pages

For years I have been her champion, her best friend and her lover. Yet all it took was one night of her give all herself to me to know Sylvie will always have me wrapped around her finger. She is unlike any woman I have known and trust me I have tried to get her out of my life. The thing is Sylvie Lancaster is not just any woman because once you get a kiss from her or even a glimpse of her love you are hers forever. Her brother is my best friend but even friendship with Whit couldn’t keep me away from her. One minute she can be all fun, warmth and loving then the next she will spite me with her anger and her mood swings. Everybody knows she can be crazy but there is a reason for that, her mother. I have heard man things of her mother but knowing that my woman is in danger because of her doesn’t sit well. I finally have Sylvie where she belong and no one will stop me from having her as my wife not even a maniac like her mother. Can I convince my Sylvie that our love has never flamed out only gotten stronger?

I love my family but there are certain people who just well love me a little too much. For years something was wrong with me and now I know what it is. I always knew she was behind everything but a mother should love right not plot to kill you. At least my should be like that but we don’t all get mothers like my Spencer that is loving and cooks family dinners. No instead my mother has tried to kill me and tried to take my place. Knowing that a man like Spencer actually believes me gives me hope that we can have what was lost all those years ago because of her. I know have done and said mean things to Spencer but he has always been mine. It is because of my mother Sylvia that I don’t know what real love is and yet Spencer still wants me. Just when I think I can be free of her and really live fate has a way keeping me on the edge of my seat. Everybody around me including my brother has found happiness yet I still remain the same, broken and unloved. Can Spence be the hero I have been waiting all these years? Can he rescue me from this prison my mother won’t let me escape from?

Finally Monica Murphy has given us Sylvie and oh my god there were times where I was scared and excited. I mean imagine Fatal Attraction and Rapunzel all rolled into one and then you have Prince Charming nearby waiting to rescue you. One thing for sure is Sylvia Lancaster aka evil mother definitely is a lunatic in every sense of the word. My heart broke for Sylvie seeing her in pain not just from this sickness her mother put upon her but also heartache for what she will never have, real love. Then we have Spencer the only one who really gets to know her and show her all of the possibilities she can have in her life. Monica Murphy sure blew me away with this tale there were lies, secrets, tons of twists when it comes to her relationship with the mom I was literally cheering for Spencer to rescue her from this hold the mom has on her. All in all this book went beyond what I expected concerning Sylvie and what she endured not being with Spencer it just teared me apart. If you want just romance skip this book but if you want suspense, action and a romance that just grows stronger with each obstacle in your way then get this book right now. All I have to say for Sylvie and Spencer is WAY TO GO.

REVIEW..Irish Charmer by L.K.Shaw

Irish Charmer: A Secret Baby Mafia Romance (The Donnellys) (Brooklyn Kings) by L.K. Shaw
252 pages
4 moons

Six years it has been since I seen her and still my heart beats fast only for her. Seeing Lucia again I expected a lot of things but knowing she has kept a son from me never entered my mind. He is everything that is me and yet a stranger as well. I know Lucia has her reasons but this whole age thing is getting quite tiring. There is just something about her that makes me want her more and love that she is ambitious in her career. I know my life is not something ideal for a woman like her but when it comes those I love they come first in my life. Someone out there wants Lucia as well and is determined to get her at any cost. She says she is not afraid but I know in her eyes there is fear and hate to see doubt towards me of protecting her. I never expected to find love in a woman like Lucia but I am determined to show her we belong to one another even if it means following her to a city away from my family.

A man like Nathan will never be in my league for many reasons. All those years ago and the one garage stand I had with him shows we are only sexually attracted. He is a man who is barely beginning to sow his wild oats so to speak and I am ready for more in my life besides just being the grieving fiancee. Yet for a brief moment he showed me a time of impulse, delight and desire and now a reminder of him every time. Enzo is my everything and truly just like his father it pains me every day of what I lost. Love with him is uncalled for considering he’s only his 20’s and well I am seasoned compared to him. I might not have the sexual exploits like him but I know I want more than just passion and sex. It has been six years since the first letter came to me and six years since I have felt well safe in my life. Someone out there wants me and have no idea what to do. Only time I do feel safe is with Nathan but can he be the man and father I need him to be. Or will the organization take another man I love?

Finally we have the youngest Irish son in the Brooklyn King series aka Donnelly family and oh wow is Nathan so much more than I thought he would be. We have seen this young man circling around Lucia and from previous books but man L.K. Shaw showed us a side of him not even his brothers know. We see a man struggling first time ever being on his own while his brothers have found happiness and love. Then we see a young woman fighting an attraction she never expected yet craving the love and new life Nathan brings her. These two have been playing a cat and mouse for a while it was fun to see them in a place where well they cannot ignore no more, love. Little Enzo was cute and boy is he just like Nathan all young and mischevious yet also wanting love just like them. All in all it was wonderful seeing L.K. Shaw showing us Rory, Paddy, Jack even Emilio himself with a glimpse of the scary Pierce lol. Cannot wait to see what she does with Caitlin in her book and see what Nathan and Lucia will be up to by then.

REVIEW..The Watcher by Melanie Moreland

The Watcher: An Angsty, Bodyguard Standalone Romance (Men of Hidden Justice Book 4) by Melanie Moreland
360 pages

In one word for the next Men of Hidden Justice is Mindblowing. Melanie Moreland totally blew me away not just Damien and Raven but the whole bad guy in this book. We have Raven Jade, average working teacher, just wanting some friendship and maybe someday love. The thing is like all women she goes online dating and by experience myself this goes either way bad or good. I felt for Raven in this book thinking she found someone but then again the internet can be tricky and scary at times. Then we have Damien De Salvo aka The Watcher, super sexy boss man and yet the only man she feels safe right now. He is a stranger to her but the only man that is protecting her in a way she never saw coming. Melanie Moreland pulls us every way and not only is the villain very tricky but oh my god you think it’s someone and then bam there’s no trace of him making you wonder who is he really. This is one bad guy that is not only tricky, clever but one you never know who he really is which just made this book awesome. Seeing Damien fighting so many feelings for Raven was like seeing his old friends going the same way and boy I applaud Melanie Moreland bringing the old gang back. One thing for sure is love can come in many ways but like his friend said to Damien, when you know you know and boy is Raven just perfect for him. Once again Melanie Moreland and her Men of Hidden Justice is a series you have to get not just for it’s suspense, action but hello her hot security men is one to really get into *wink*.

REVIEW..Dirty Crazy Bad by Siobhan Davis

Dirty Crazy Bad: A Reverse Harem Romance (Dirty Crazy Bad Duet Book 1) by Siobhan Davis
518 pages
4 moon

There is a new story you have to read by Siobhan Davis but before you do get ready for a new girl you going to love. We have Ashley Shaw, who in many ways has a life you will envy but there is also a price she has to pay. Not only does she come from a family with so many secrets, lies and betrayal it’s easy to see why she has three hot men after her. We have Jase, Chad and stepbrother Ares wanting one thing, her. The thing is each man have something they’re hiding from her and their own secrets yet when it comes down to it they will always protect her even if it means going against The Luminaries. A society that has been around for years based on the Seven Deadly Sins one that will kill at all costs and one that has set their eyes on Ashley right now. Of all the seven sins the one that keeps getting through the book is Lust and Envy and boy does Siobhan Davis pack it all in with these four people. This is one book that will trap you in from Ashley to the men all wanting her not sure how Siobhan Davis kept track on everything but dang it was hot. This is the first part of the duet and cannot wait to see what Jase and Ares will do mostly because everyone else has something in stake in this book. Totally get prepared to be blown away from this book you won’t know who you rooting for because all of them are great.

REVIEW..Nuclear Option Book 2 by Giulia Lagomarsino

Nuclear Option: An OPS Protector Romance Novel (Owens Protective Services Book 2) by Giulia Lagomarsino
362 pages
4 moons

Eva has been on the run for years and just when she thinks things can be normal they find her. Of all people to help her she knows Cash Owens will protect her with his life. The thing is they have gotten closer and knowing that Cash will put his own life for her is not something she’s comfortable with right now. Seeing how he operates sometimes scares but what I loved about Eva is she moves forward still loving him in her own way. Everybody means well and they are closer to ever getting the news out of the corrupt that is happening. Being with Cash is making her see she is a fighter and not the little kitten everybody in the team thinks of her. Cash makes her see she can be stronger than ever even though there are times she just wants to cave. I loved seeing this big, sexy sniper see that there is more to killing people and boy are they perfect for each other. Giulia Lagomarsino brings these two in a way they never expected but they actually bring out the good in each other. Seeing Cash thinking of more than just killing the people after Eva and wanting to protect her more is just blowing me away. Not only are they so right but seeing Fox, Rafe, Rae were hillarious in this book and cannot wait to see what she does well with the New Guy lol. Loved it.

REVIEW..Once Forbidden, Twice Shy by Carrie Aarons

Once Forbidden, Twice Shy by Carrie Aarons
268 pages
4 moons

I’m not running away so to speak I am exploring. That is something I keep saying to myself. I know this new job is what I needed right now but my new boss is so not what I expected. He is the one man who can break me again and after years of getting over him all the heartache comes back again. For years Jack Merrick was my everything and the one night I finally know how he feels he left. Seeing him again and as my boss is so not what I imagined out reunion to be like but boy is he persistent. He says he has his reasons for leaving me but the childhood crush I had for him has well stayed and I must be strong to move on even thought fate wants us together. Coding has always been my thing but when it comes to real life like the chemistry I have with Jack again it is not that simple to compute we still belong together. Can I ignore him at the work office or will he be my downfall again at this new job?

For years I remained in control with my feelings for Taylor for good reasons. She is my best friends little sister and it may sound cliche but the bro code is stronger and yet I am weak when it comes to her. Her family is everything my family is not like and I envy what she has. I knew one night will not be enough but if she knew my real reason why I stayed away she would hate me. Of all places I have been landing this new job in London seemed like a good place until I saw her again. Once again I am in a place where I don’t want to be and yet having her close with me everyday is true torture because I want her more than ever. The love I had for her is stronger and yet fighting my attraction towards her in the work office is getting hard in every way. She is still beautiful, sexy and knowing there is a fear in her eyes makes me want to be there for her even if she denies she’s running away from something. Can I be there for her when our careers are in jeopardy? Can I show her that my love for her is still there and want more if she’ll have me again?

Once again Carrie Aarons packs in a story that will just make you want more of them. I fell for Taylor for her wanting to start a new life and still struggle with her fear. Here is a woman who went throught something no woman should go through yet in some way it made her see that she can do so much more. Then we have Jack who like Taylor has his own secrets that in some way he thinks it might tear them apart. These two have so much past and chemistry it’s hard to wonder why they have not been together this whole time yet Carrie Aarons is very clever the way they come together. I loved how they kept denying they’re still in love but you can tell right from their reunion meet they’re all about each other it was just well aww. All in all this was a book about friendship, old lovers and most of all the second chance they have been dreaming off all these years. Loved it.

REVIEW..White Collar Brothers Book Set by Piper Rayne

White Collar Brother’s Book Set by Piper Rayne
922 pages

Sexy Filthy Boss (White Collar Brothers #1)
Of all the people to get stuck working with Enzo Mancini is not one to go to. The thing is she has no choice because well her job depends on it. Working in the Marketing Department she has tried to advance but always feels left out until one campaign where Enzo needs her. Everybody knows her is the golden boy at the firm and her well she is a woman trying to survive in the mans world. She knows Enzo is different but when their relationship goes from the bedroom to the office she has no idea what to do now. Can she just go back to being his temporary assistant after knowing his kisses and loving?

Dirty Flirty Enemy (White Collar Brothers #2)
Of all the women in the world to turn his life upside down it is the she-devil Bella. He is known in the realty busines of getting the job done but she is also a realtor taking his clients. She says its not on purpose but then again she is tricky and clever in her own right. Something about her is making think of well the four letter word and it scares him. His brother, Enzo found it with Annie and though it looks good on him it is not for him. The thing is a man like him, Carmelo Mancini doesn’t fall easily even if it is for sexy, beautiful and smart woman like Bella. Can he put their business feud aside and see what all this love is really about for the first time?

Wild Steamy Hook-Up (White Collar Brothers #3)
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas? At least that is their motto but when it comes to the Mancini nothing stays quiet. Of all people to wake up, Dominic Mancini should never have been one of those people. He is her first love and the only man to really make her feel loved and wanted. The thing is that is so much worse than the casual hookups they have had since last year, Married. Of all things to happen to them she never imagined being married again and now on the brink of another divorce. As an Italian divorce is uncalled for but a second one is just well the end of her life so to speak. Can she really just give up Dominic again even if her heart wants this Las Vegas marriage to work?

One word to describe this whole book set by Piper Rayne, AWESOME. We have three hot, sexy Italian men and readers beware they are so different from one another yet all want one thing but deny it, love. First of is Enzo and boy this is so far from the cliche falling for the boss. He is so set against feeling thngs that he keeps his heart guarded yet when it comes to Annie he has no control of what his heart really wants. Then we have the easy-going, funny and crazy second brother, Carmelo. Now here is a young man who is not ready for love yet he is secretly envious of what his brother has. Now he is so a mama’s boy and when his Mama wants him to find love he’ll do anything yet at what cost. Bella is perfect for him bringing out a side of him that not even his brothers have seen. Finally we have Dominic, the oldest of the Mancini brothers and boy all the sexy brooding he does grab and ice bucket. We see him dealing with his feelings toward his childhood crush Valentina. Now these two are like soulmates reuniting yet life has a way of pulling them apart. Loved seeing Dominic fighting his love and wanting to do the right thing. Pretending can sometimes be good yet when it comes to Valentine he wants all in even if it means disappointment again.
