CHASING HIM by Kennedy Fox – Release Day

 

John Bishop isn’t your typical single dad.

Reserved, impatient, and utterly clueless.

Running the family’s bed and breakfast has many perks. Working long hours, picking up after the guests, and hearing couples going at it all night long aren’t any of them. Hooking up with girls who come to the ranch for horseback riding lessons? Best perk of them all.

That is until a baby shows up at his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. Growing up on a ranch was anything but easy, but raising a newborn is proving to be the hardest task he’ll ever tackle. Leaving the bachelor life behind, his only priority is to hire a nanny who can teach him a thing or two about parenting—except he doesn’t anticipate her being gorgeous and quirky with an unhealthy football obsession.

Mila Carmichael has many talents—making balloon animals, creating origami art, and remaining in the friend zone. Often seen as one of the guys, she’s struck out more times than a rookie baseball player.

Seeking a new adventure, she flies to Texas to visit family and is offered a position she can’t refuse. Helping out a new dad should come easy to her, considering her past experience, but what she doesn’t anticipate is him being an attractive Southern temptation.

But that’s only the beginning.

While growing close to his family and falling madly in love with the baby girl who’s stealing their hearts, things are bound to get complicated. Everyone knows not to mix business with pleasure. That means no late movie nights, no stolen glances, and definitely no kissing behind closed doors. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll threaten taking away the main thing that binds them together.

John’s POV

 

As soon as I walk into the living room, I see Mila in tight blue jeans and a low cut shirt that shows way too much cleavage.

“Nope.” Resting my hands on my hips, I look at her, trying not to stare at her chest. It doesn’t help that her nipples are hard as a damn rock either. Fuck. Eyes up.

“Nope, what?” she asks, furrowing her brows in confusion as she grabs Maize out of the swing.

“You can’t wear that shirt. Actually, we should probably set some ground rules since you’ll be staying here around the clock.”

Mila rolls her eyes and kneels down in front of the carseat. She’s dressed Maize in an outfit that says something about Grandma being her favorite, and I know Mama is going to love it. “Is that what you do ‘round here? Make rules for everyone?” She arches an eyebrow with a cocky smirk on her face.

Tilting my head, I narrow my eyes and study her. “What’s that supposed to mean?”

“Ask Jackson.” She carefully places Maize in the car seat and straps her in. I suck in a deep breath remembering the nanny rules I’d given Jackson, the ones she wasn’t supposed to hear.

“Jackson needs rules. He has zero boundaries. And it’s not like he listens to anyone anyway. Trust me. It’s an open invitation to flirting and ridiculous comments from him. So you can’t be wearing shirts like that around him.”

“…or I can’t be wearing shirts like this around you?” she quips, not paying any attention to how frustrated I’m becoming. “I think I can handle Jackson, so stop worrying yourself.”

“Whatever, Mila.”

She straightens up and looks me dead in the eyes. “You’re my boss and you can make any crazy rules you want when it comes to your baby, but you don’t get to tell me what I can and can’t wear, unless you’re instating a dress code for me and if that’s the case, I want a raise and a clothes allowance then.”

I scoff, crossing my arms over my chest that’s rising and falling rapidly. “How much for you to wear baggy overalls and turtlenecks every day?”

“You’ve got jokes, do you?” she mutters, not amused. “Why not just put a chastity belt on me too while you’re at it?”

I grunt, thinking that’s not a bad idea actually.

RELEASE BLITZ – Nerdgasm by Kimberly Reese

 

 

Title: Nerdgasm

Series: Naughty Nerds #0.5

Author: Kimberly Reese
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 28, 2018

 

Blurb

 

nerdgasm (noun):
an emotional climax at the peak of intense (sometimes sexual) excitement,
characterized by a deep attraction to nerdy things and/or people.
My stutter makes it easy to become the center of attention for all the wrong
reasons, so I try hard to stay out of the spotlight.

But when Addison Mitchell breezes into the class I TA for, she turns my world
upside down, shaking me out of my comfort zone.

Confident and bold, her wandering hands set my body on fire.

She sees the real me, and she’s still interested.

I’m completely out of my element, yet I’ve never felt more alive.

Fingers crossed we’re not a one-off fling.

I have a lot to learn, but I’m willing to make this work.

I’m going to give her more than a nerdgasm.

I’m going to give her my heart.

RELEASE BLITZ- Love Redefined by Delancey Stewart

 

 

Title: Love Redefined

Series: Kings Grove #3

Author: Delancey Stewart
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Women’s Fiction
Release Date: June 26, 2018
Blurb

Chance Palmer is the hottest bachelor in Kings Grove, and even his
younger brother Sam sees him as a playboy and a charmer. It’s nice to be
admired, but Chance is ready for something serious–something like the love he
had once before. The love he refuses to talk about.
Michaela “Mike” Grayson fell in love once. And though that
relationship gave her the son she’d never trade for anything, it came with a
darker side she’s still trying to escape.

When Michaela’s job requires her to scout a tiny town called Kings Grove as a
potential resort destination for her company, she’s not prepared for what
awaits her there:  a charming playboy with a knack for making her feel
like everything in her world just might work out fine. And Chance is unprepared
for the feelings he finds inside himself for Michaela, and for her son, Finn.

Can Mike overcome the darkness in her past enough to trust that Chance might be
more than just a fantasy? Can Chance Palmer move past the pain of his first
love and fall again?

This is Book 3 in the Kings Grove Series. Each book can be read as a
standalone. Perfect for fans of Melody Grace, Bella Andre, Jill Shalvis and
Susan Mallery.

RELEASE BLITZ- Going for the Hole by L.P. Dover

 

Title: Going for the Hole
Standalone
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 25, 2018

 

Blurb

Grip it softly.

Stroke it smooth.
And you’ll sink right into the hole. That’s my motto both on
and off the golf course. The women come in full supply everywhere I go and
there are no complaints. Maybe it’s the size of my driver that gets them going.
I’m Lucas “Ace” Montgomery, professional golfer and world
record holder for the longest drive in golf history. The PGA Tour has been my
life, but it’s time for a break. A few relaxing weeks of drinking and golf with
friends in Myrtle Beach is what I need. However, when a bright pink ball knocks
me out on the course, and a blonde beauty comes to my aid, I expect to see a
gallery girl, a.k.a a member of the Party Groupie Association. Trust me, those
girls know how to have fun. Although, to my surprise, it’s not what I get at
all.
Dr. Ashley Locke is beautiful and everything I’d want if I
was ever to get serious about someone. Unfortunately, she has no interest in me
whatsoever which only makes me want her more. All she wants is to get through
her friend’s bachelorette weekend and go back to her life, but after injuring
me on the course, I’m not letting her run away so easily. When I want
something, I get it.
I’m not competing for money this time. All I want is to win
her heart.

Excerpt

“When can I see you again?”
I shook my head. “I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
“I took a needle in the ass for you. Surely, that deserves
more of your attention?”
Why did he always have to give me that devilish smile of
his? As much as I wanted to hate it, I couldn’t.“Why are you doing this? Can’t
you find someone else?”
“Of course I can, but I want you. We can have secret
meetings in here if you’re still embarrassed to be seen in public with me.”
I rolled my eyes. “I’m not embarrassed. You’re you, and
I’m a respectable member of society.”
He burst out laughing. “Okay, I see how it is.”
“I just don’t want the publicity,” I added. “You can
understand that, right? You of all people should know what it’s like not to
have privacy.”
His smile faded. “You’re right, I do, but it’s my life. I
can’t change who I am.” My body shivered with the intensity of his stare. “For
once, I thought I’d found someone who wanted me for me and not my money or
fame.”
Guilt racked my body and I sighed. “Okay, I give in. I can
see you tomorrow, after I get out of the spa. Maybe we can order in room
service.”
Eyes twinkling, he went over to the door and opened it. “Now
that’s a plan I can get behind.”
Before I could walk out, he stood in
my way, body close to mine. “I’m going to break through that ice wall of yours,
sunshine. One way or another.”
I batted my eyelashes in an innocent matter. “Good luck with
that.”

RELEASE BLITZ – Save the Date by Carrie Aarons

 

Title: Save the Date
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 24, 2018
Blurb
You know that pact you make with your childhood best
friend of the opposite sex? The one where, if you’re both still single, lonely
and hopeless at thirty, you’ll marry each other?
This is the story about what happens when you hit the big three-oh and have to
make good on that pinky promise.

Personally, I think love, romance and all of that nonsense is a crock of, well,
you know. And Reese Collins, the boy who used to put worms in my hair at
backyard barbecues, knows that better than anyone.

But when he moves to the same city I’ve happily, and singly, inhabited for
years, memories of oaths past resurface. Reese is like a dog with a bone; a
really hot dog and that bone just happens to be me.

He won’t stop hounding me, and the crazy thing is, my frigid, traitorous heart
is starting to cave. For my best friend.

It seems so far off, when you’re a kid playing Monopoly in your treehouse. But
when that clock strikes midnight on your thirtieth birthday, and you’re
standing alone in front of a grocery store-bought cupcake, a childhood deal to
walk down the aisle doesn’t seem so silly anymore.

Blurb:


Irish whiskey royalty has no place in Northern California, but that isn’t going to stop Iain Brennan, the black sheep of Brennan Family Distillers, from giving it a shot. Wine Country is an unlikely place to launch a whiskey empire, but Iain’s just reckless enough to make it work. And being out from under the watchful eye of his disapproving father back home in Dublin? Even better.

Naomi Klein has spent the last ten years ignoring her society family as much as possible while building a career as a renowned sculptor. She’s found a home in River Hill, but has no interest in dipping her toes into the commitment pool. Just the idea of forever gives her hives. Which makes a rootless Irish wanderer the perfect fling. And shocking her mother? Just a bonus.

But as cozy autumn nights turn into lazy winter mornings, Naomi and Iain realize that they’re getting close to something neither of them wants: love. When Naomi discovers Iain’s not quite as rootless as he seems, she’ll have to make some tough decisions. And when the Brennans and the Kleins descend en masse to collect their prodigal children, River Hill may never be the same.

👄Melena’s Review👄
The next one in the River Hill series by Rebecca Norinne is filled with much comedy, confusion, friendship and a woman seeing that maybe committment is not so bad. Naomi and Iain are great for each other yet afraid to be impulsive and just be themselves. The attraction is there and the sex hot in a way that it seems almost normal for them. Cannot wait to see who is next in this little town where anything is possible.

“I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own.”

EXCERPT:

“Thank you for doing this,” Iain said, the pad of his index finger tracing over the design Naomi had created for Whitman’s Revival. “To be honest, I wasn’t sure I’d hear from you again. You kind of ghosted me.”

He glanced up in time to catch her looking away guiltily. “Yeah, about that—”

“I’m not asking you to explain yourself. I get it. We had some fun, and now it’s time to move on.”

Naomi’s eyes came back around, the guilt replaced with what Iain thought looked a whole lot like contemplation. “Funny you should mention that.”

“Funny how?”

“I was thinking,” she said, her finger swirling a pattern on the table that separated them. “You’re leaving in two months, and it would be a shame if we didn’t spend that time … hanging out.” Her eyes bored into his, as if daring him to misunderstand.

His lips quirked up into a smirk. “Why, Miss Klein, are you asking me to fuck you senseless until I board a plane back to Ireland?”

She tossed him a wicked smile full of promise. “You have to admit; we’re pretty damn good at it.”

“The best,” he agreed.

He felt his chest sawing in and out as his breathing became deeper and more labored. Iain couldn’t remember the last time he’d felt such heady anticipation. Oh, wait, yes, he could. It was that night in San Francisco when he and Naomi had practically run from that dive bar to his hotel. He’d been so ready for her that he’d ripped her dress off before the door to his room had locked behind them.

“So, what do you say, Brennan? You want to spend the next sixty days seeing how many orgasms we can give each other?”

That was all the invitation Iain needed. Abruptly, he stood, his chair scraping over the black-and-white-checked linoleum and then crashing to the floor. He stalked around the fifties-style diner table and fisted his hands in Naomi’s hair. He bent at the waist and let his lips hover scant centimeters from her parted ones. He could feel the warmth of her breath mingling with his own. “What do you say we get started on that now?”

She licked her lips. “Yes, let’s.”
