Like You Sales Blitz

Today we have the sales blitz for Jillian Liota’s LIKE YOU series! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy of this sexy duet today!

Title: Like You Mean It

Author: Jillian Liota

About Like You Mean It:

“I want to make you smile like you mean it.”

 

The day Cole Lannington says those words to me, I already know I’m falling. Hard. For a man I can never have. Because there’s no way in hell I’ll ever deserve a man like him.

 

Annie

All I need to do is keep my head above water. Push a little harder. Keep that smile plastered on my face for my son as we try to wade through the new life that’s threatening to drown us both.

 

But on the first day I can’t seem to hold it all together, I meet him. And for some reason, he comes to my aid. Before I know it, Cole steps in and becomes an important part of my life. Our lives. Fills a void left vacant by a man who never wanted to fill it in the first place.

 

Too bad he can never be more than a friend.

 

Cole

All I need to do is be a nice guy to my new neighbor. Make her smile a little bit. Find space in my tidy, structured life to ease the burden she carries so she and her son can enjoy life without the bastard who treated them like they were insignificant.

 

I don’t expect to talk and laugh and feel a warmth in my chest I didn’t know was missing until she showed up at my door. Somehow I end up caring about her more deeply than I should. But my friendship with Annie opens my eyes to what it could be like to have something deeper. To feel something stronger.

 

To fall in love like I mean it.

 

Like You Mean It is the first book in the Like You Series and is a standalone novel.

Title: Like You Want It

Author: Jillian Liota

About Like You Want It:

“Sometimes, wanting someone just isn’t enough.”

I don’t want to believe those words. Because I’ve never fallen for someone like Fin Callaghan. And I can’t imagine that this feeling isn’t enough.

 

CARLY.”

To say my first interaction with Fin leaves much to be desired is an understatement. He infuriates me, barely speaks, and glares at me all the time. Not to mention he thinks I’m a mess.

 

It isn’t in my plans to start to like him. To fall for him. To want something more. But Fin’s past is filled with a pain that makes any kind of us impossible. He can’t seem to figure out what he wants, and truthfully, neither can I.

 

All I know is that I want more than what he’s willing to give.

 

FIN.”

All I should be focusing on is my family as we try to sort through the wounds left by our past mistakes. I have more than enough on my plate, have sacrificed too much to fracture my focus. I shouldn’t allow a woman to get in the way. Especially one like Carly Palmer.

 

She’s different. Wild. A bright burst of color in my world of black and white. Before I know it, she’s all that I want. All I can think about. But it doesn’t matter. I’ve been through betrayal that still singes my skin, eats at my soul.

 

I won’t allow it to happen again.

 

Like You Want It is the second book in the Like You Series and is a standalone novel.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Well, thanks for placating Jones with the motorcycle,” I say. “I appreciate how nice you are to him. But I should probably get back inside. We have to head out soon.”

Cole looks back at me, his eyebrows furrowing for a second, and Jess’ smile grows just slightly.

“See you guys later,” I say.

Then I turn and waddle my fat pregnant butt back to my house. I have places to be, and it doesn’t include whatever is going on between Jess and Cole.

But the minute I enter my house, I realize all of the windows in the front are open, and after standing in the entry for just a second, it’s more than easy to hear them talking.

“What was that?” Cole hisses.

There’s silence for a second, and I step closer to a window and glance outside. Jess is just standing there, looking at him.

“What do you mean?”

Even from here, I can hear the absolutely faux innocence in her voice. I roll my eyes, then realize Cole has done the same thing.

“Don’t pull that. I thought if you met Annie, you’d see that you have nothing to be worried about.”

Ouch. I wince at his comment. He wanted me to meet his girlfriend so she’d realize I’m not competition? Well, first of all, obviously I’m not competition. I’m a fat fatty pregnant lady that’s bloated and gassy and crying all the time. And two, Cole is way, way out of my league. Like years out of my league. Literally. He’s at least ten years older than me, seems to be leading a successful life, and as time passes, I’m becoming even more aware of how handsome he is. Like, really handsome.

Yeah, in the pool of life, he’s swimming in the Olympic-sized one next to Michael Phelps, while I’m over in the kiddie pool testing out floaties.

But still. No one wants their mediocrity shoved in their face.

Maybe I shouldn’t listen to them anymore. Eavesdropping never did anyone any good. I’m sure of it.

But before I can get far enough away from the window, I hear him continue.

“She’s my pregnant fucking neighbor who is all alone and has no friends. Have a little pity, Jess. Jesus.”

The blood drains from my face.

Have a little pity, Jess.

Great. Exactly what I fucking want. Someone who feels obligated to be nice to me because I’m such an unfortunate mess of desperation and failure.

I glance back out the window and see Cole sitting on his bike. And when his eyes track over to my house for a second, somehow, they land on mine.

I step quickly away and rush towards the back of the house.

“Jones!” I call to him.

His smiling face pops out of his bedroom just before I get there.

“You ready?”

When he nods, I give him a high five. Then I wait like a coward to hear Cole’s motorcycle rev up and head down the road before walking out to my car.

I don’t want his pity, and if he’s realized that I overheard what he said to Jess, I definitely don’t want his remorse either.

My name is Zayn Bronsyn,

and I think I screwed up.

 

I wasn’t supposed to fall,

especially not for her.

She’s in a league of her own,

and I’m just her brother’s scumbag friend.

 

The last time I saw her,

she was thirteen with braces.

Now, she’s back from boarding school,

with an hourglass body that’ll bring me to my knees.

 

If Easton finds out I hooked up with his sister,

he might actually kill me.

She’s too innocent, too perfect for a guy like me,

but I can’t resist dragging her into my messed up world.

 

Amelia Donovan might be the one to revive my blackened heart.

Release Blitz of GRIP by Lacey Black

 

Lacey Black’s Grip is a second-chance, surprise-baby contemporary romance written in K. Bromberg’s Driven World project!

 

 

Mack
I live to race. It’s in my blood–the smell of dirt and gasoline, the fast cars, the screaming fans. I was the king of a small track in Missouri with the world at my fingertips. I even had the girl, until a call came from the infamous Colton Donavan. I had a choice to make: my dream or the woman I loved. I couldn’t have both.

When an unexpected surprise shows up on my doorstep in the form of a baby, there’s only one woman I trust enough to help me. Lena Stanley, the one I left behind. But being in close proximity to her reminds me of what we used to have, and what I still want. Her.

Lena
The day he walked away to chase his dream was the hardest day of my life, but I powered through. I could never ask Mack to choose between me and the opportunity of a lifetime. That’s why I pushed him toward the latter, despite the heartache it caused.

Now, he needs my help. The problem is it’s hard to keep old feelings buried. Despite my best efforts, our connection is too powerful to deny. However, as our short time together draws to a close, I have another difficult choice to make. Only this time, I’m not just walking away from him, but his son too.

~~Melena’s Review~~

wpid-recommendation-logo-4-preview-e1439256027664

Grip is part of K. Bromberg’s Driver World kindle series and this new one by Lacey Black has all the feels of a great standalone in a way that makes you want to be more into this world. We have Lena and Mack, two people who thought their love would overcome anything but sometimes dreams are so much bigger. Seeing Mack after all this time just proves that maybe love is stronger than ever with years apart. I loved seeing Mack not in his element when it comes to baby Oliver and this little cutie just steals the show. The chemistry is still there between them but knowing what is at stake this time is hard to just sweep away. Lacey Black in the Driven World is a great addition but seeing everybody like Colton, Fish and Beth was a treat. This has all the great feels of a beautiful book and adding Oliver to make Mack see that sometimes life brings surprises but in good ways. Loved it.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive…

Pretty, pretentious little liars.

I’m surrounded by them everywhere I turn.

The ones who I thought were my enemies have become my greatest allies. And the ones who I severely underestimated turned out to be much eviler than I could’ve ever imagined.

They say money can’t buy happiness. Well…I’m here to tell you, it can certainly broker a deal with a devil.

And the funny thing about dealing with devils? They always come to collect. Too bad for them, I’m going to put up one helluva fight.

I’m stronger.

I’m ready.

And I’m going to love watching them fall.

Hot dang Laura Lee this series is like Mean Girls and Cruel Intentions all in one making it a superbook favorite for me. I loved seeing how far Jazz has come but most importantly Kingston, Bentley and Reed. Don’t get me wrong Kingston is perfect for Jazz but seeing Bent open up a little was an eye opener between these two. Now to the nitty gritty this is one explosion I didn’t see coming and man Laura Lee sure knows how to light the fuse and seeing it explode in the finale was like fireworks over New York, hot. We finally see who is behind all the lies, hate, betrayal and oh my God Jazz’s mom all the front and wowza. Not only do we see everything Kingston has worked for we see Reed getting his woman and the real reason why Bentley hides his feelings between well girls. Laura Lee definitely is not your typical romance author full of roses, happily ever afters but she gets down and dirty making you see her characters are fighters all the way. One thing for sure I loved the most was seeing all the key players pay for what they did and readers will love Kingston in how far he has come with a woman like Jazz by his side. This is one series that is worth getting and a glimpse of what Laura Lee writes pulling you in every direction making you wonder who will be standing alive. Loved it.

Release Blitz ot THE BOYFRIEND EFFECT by Kendall Ryan

The Boyfriend Effect By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: October 13, 2020

About the Book

I’m not boyfriend material.

If a trail of broken hearts, and a piss-poor record of failed relationships have taught me anything, it’s this.

My buddies are happy to give me shit about my latest breakup from here to next Sunday. Thanks, but I’d rather have a root canal.

And a vasectomy.

At the same time.

But my relief comes in an unlikely package—the gorgeous and feisty Maren. She just so happens to be my friend’s sister, so that’s not awkward at all.

But I’m a man on a mission, and Maren is down to teach me all the ways I’ve been failing as a boyfriend. Apparently, there are many. And it’s all very informative—until I start to catch feels.

Now it’s not just my reputation on the line, but my heart too.

💋Melena’s Reviews💋 wpid-recommendation-logo-4-preview-e1439256027664 Kendall Ryan sure knows how to get your attention and Hayes is one guy you don’t want to miss. This is the first of Frisky Business, a new series that involves on four men running an Adult Toy Store that has all the friendship, sex and tons of hillarious scenes that only Kendall Ryan can come up. I loved Maren and her attitude in this book from being shy to well frisky in every funny way. Now Hayes was loveable but have to say we see a softer side of him when it comes to his Grandmother Rosie who as an old grandma sure was hillarious as well and feisty. The friendship between Hayes and Maren was fun to read and boy seeing them circle around each other was like come on move it. Boy when they do makes you wonder why Kendall Ryan took this long it is explosive between them and can see why they are perfect for each other. Seeing Hayes think he doesn’t have it in him to be a boyfriend was funny because it’s obvious he is so boyfriend material but with the right person, Maren. This is a series that I cannot wait to see what Kendall Ryan will do next because there are still three more men in Frisky Business and if they’re anything like Hayes they will steal your heart as well. Loved it. “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.”

Release and Blog tour of THE GRITTY TRUTH by Melissa Foster

Today we have the release week blitz of Melissa Foster’s The Gritty Truth! Check out this gorgeous new romance and be sure to get your copy today!

Title: The Gritty Truth

Author: Melissa Foster

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About The Gritty Truth:

A fun, sexy, and emotionally riveting new standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. THE GRITTY TRUTH is the perfect love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, strong family bonds, bikers, babies, and more!

Recovering drug addict Quincy Gritt has fought his demons. He’s confessed to his crimes and conquered his addictions. He’s finally ready to go after sweet, sexy Roni, the gorgeous brunette who won a date with him in a charity auction five months ago and has been putting him off, and driving him wild, ever since.

Dancer Veronica “Roni” Wescott worked hard to escape the seedy area where she was raised and followed her dreams to Julliard, only to have them shattered in the blink of an eye. She fought hard and regained her footing, but then the rug was pulled out from under her again when the grandmother who raised her passed away, leaving Roni feeling adrift in a world she knows very little about outside of dance. And then there’s Charlie Hunnam–lookalike Quincy Gritt—the man whose late-night texts pulled her through her grief and have been setting her heart aflutter for months.

Quincy pulls out all the stops, determined to prove that their friendship is only the beginning of what’s destined to be so much more. Romantic nights lead to smoldering passion and a deep connection too strong to be denied. But when Quincy’s past comes back to haunt him, can he and Roni accept their new gritty truth, or will Quincy spiral back into the darkness and lose the future he fought so hard to have?

~~Melena’s Reviews~~

Love coming to this family and once again Melissa Foster shows us that family is not necessarily blood related but it those that count and stand by you that is family. For years Quincy has felt like he doesn’t deserve to be loved seeing how he hasn’t really known love at all. Only one who has been there was his brother, Tru and even then he tried to push him away. Guilt and memories can make a man turn hard but knowing that love can happen especially for Tru he wants it all now. Roni is perfect for him for in a way she completes him in a way no one has done. Seeing them together you can see how free Quincy is away from all the bad stuff that has happened and Roni coming alive with him. Melissa Foster shows us that love can bloom between two friends and grow into a once in a lifetime love that doesn’t have words but action. Loved see Grit and the whole gang even Dixie, Jace and the little children will just melt your heart. Cannot wait to see who is next in this serie.

REVIEW..The Game You Play by L.A Cotton

The Game You Play: A Hate-to-Love Story (Rixon Raiders Book 2) by L.A. Cotton
Ebook
wpid-recommendation-logo-4-preview-e1439256027664

She didn’t mean for it to happen but somehow it did. In many ways she blames the list. The list that has all the things she wants to accomplish this Senior Year. Her friend Hailey calls it crazy and now she is well in a way disappointed that it was Jason, her stepbrother that made her into a woman. He is Rixon High’s top Quarterback, the one man who can finally take them to State and the one man to continuously break her heart. Felicity doesn’t know why she keeps going to him but it is like he is a Siren just saying her name and she is well bespelled by him. It is crazy but she knows somewhere inside him is the Jason worth loving and she is determined to find him. She knows Prince Charmings and Knight in Shining Armors exist but somehow Jason is making her see that maybe what she needs is a bad boy. Can she be the girl that actually tames Rixon Highs sexy, arrogant and macho Quarterback Jason Ford?

He is crazy at least that what he thinks for even thinking of something happening with Felicity Giles his evil stepsister’s best friend. The thing is that even though she is always with Hailey somehow she has gotten under his skin. Problem is he cannot afford any distractions and boy one night in New York is all it takes for him to be more than distracted he is smitten. He is Jason Ford, sexy, skilled in and out of the bed, can have any girl he wants and the one he actually wants is one he cannot afford to have right now. This is his Senior Year, last time to take Rixon High to State and last time to finally set the record straight that Rixon East are not the best. Playing for State means the pressure is on and every Scout out there is all eyes on him. He never imagined though that he will be fighting for what he loves, the game, but that Felicity will knock him out of his breath. First time ever he is wanting more than football and it kills him that he has to choose between them. Can he play his final game and have the girl that makes him want to be better and more than just a player?

Oh my God I thought Cameron was my favorite but dang move over the Quartback is in the field. Have to say Felicity is more than I expected but boy is she a firecracker when it comes to Jason. The chemistry they have is more than what they thought was possible and L.A Cotton didn’t stop with just their chemistry but the sparring between them was hot as hell. Here is a girl who may seem kind of shy and well nerdy but watch out with this one. Poor Jason has no idea what is in store with him and laughed when she puts it all on the table for him. What I loved the most was that we saw more than a football player we saw the real Jason that nobody has seen before. We see a young man who has known only one love, football and boy when Felicity comes in it was fun to see him struggling in a way he doesn’t know how to handle. L.A Cotton once again doesn’t disappoint and this is one series that I am wanting more and cannot wait to see what she does with Asher. This is one game that Jason has to decide which way he wants the touchdown to go on the field or in his heart. AWESOME!!

REVIEW..The Duplicate Bride by Ginny Baird

The Duplicate Bride by Ginny Baird
Ebook
4 moons

Family is important to Hope and when her sister needs her she goes in. The thing is this is more than just a small favor and it scares her. Jackie is getting married and not just married but to Ben Albright. When she was little she had a small crush on him and seeing him after all these years it has gotten stronger. Jackie has always had high ending goals and marrying an Albright is at the top of her list. What she didn’t expect was well to take her place in all the planning. She knows Jackie has things going on right now planning other people’s wedding is her career but now that she is marrying herself this is the time to focus. Problem is that they don’t see her as Hope but as Jackie the actual bride. Of all the things she has done this one well takes the cake. It was supposed to be just a couple of days nothing more not to lose her heart. Yet Ben is not just any groom he is THE ONE well for herself. Can she continue on the charade knowing her heart is at stake right now?

Marriage of convenience it has worked for many couples and it was all in the plan. Jackie Webb is perfect, headstrong, beautiful and eye on the prize, career. He thought he knew Jackie but seeing her again he is well really seeing her. Ben always though she was into her wedding planning career and nothing else. Probably why his Grandmother is well not set into this marriage between them. He loves his family and yet somewhere along the way he has guarded his heart from ever falling in love again. Somehow though Jackie is getting under his skin and he is seeing how right they feel towards each other. His family is important to him and seeing Jackie easily loveable with his parents and even Grandmother makes him wonder if a marriage of convenience is still on the table. Can he have it all the bride of his dreams, love with his fiancee but most of all love at last?

Oh boy talk about twins being mischevious yet in a funny and romantic way. We have Hope Webb, average and beautiful teacher on a break from her school kids. All she wanted was to spend her summer relaxing then comes in a hurricane her twin sister, Jackie. Boy these two and Ben was a hoot to read seeing Hope with all her lies and stopping her heart from falling for Ben was wow. Ginny Baird not only shows us two twins that are alike but man so different in every way from their personalities to well even their careers. I loved seeing how Ginny not only shows us Hope find love but also afraid because of what she has done so far. We see Hope’s artistic and crazy mother to Ben’s somewhat rich family felt like a modern day Sweet Home Alabama family wedding complete with craziness and love. Jackie, however seemed too into her business it was easy to see why she was perfect for Ben’s plans. This was a great treat to read and even though it was more of Hope we see Ben feelings things he has closed for a while now. Loved it and beautifully written by Ginny.
