GRIP COVER SALE

Resisting an irresistible force wears you down and turns you out. I know. I’ve been doing it for years.

I may not have a musical gift of my own, but I’ve got a nose for talent and an eye for the extraordinary. And Marlon James – Grip to his fans – is nothing short of extraordinary.

Years ago, we strung together a few magical nights, but I keep those memories in a locked drawer and I’ve thrown away the key. All that’s left is friendship and work.

He’s on the verge of unimaginable fame, all his dreams poised to come true. I manage his career, but I can’t seem to manage my heart.

It’s wild, reckless, disobedient. And it remembers all the things I want to forget.

FLOW REVIEW:

I’m so glad I re-read this because I really enjoyed it even more this time. I’m surprised that I forgot so much of what happened in this novella, even about 6 months later! I originally started Flow with the intentions of immediately starting Grip and clearly that didn’t happen the first go around. But this time I’m ready to read Grip and I’m so excited!

GRIP REVIEW:

Man. Where do I even begin with this book?! One of my best book friends has been raving about this book for months and has been PUSHING me to read it. I’m surprised she didn’t drive to my house when I originally read Flow to force me to read Grip. ;)
Seriously. I’m already mad at myself for having waited this long to read it. This book was so much more than Grip and Bristol’s story. Something I’m now understanding especially after hearing my friend talk about this book and how much she absolutely adores it.
Seriously guys, if you haven’t read Flow/Grip yet, what are you doing with your life?!
Honestly, I think this is my first time reading an interracial love story. I don’t know why this was my first, but seriously. I can’t gush about this book enough. I’m dying to start Still and see what happens next with them! I’m glad this doesn’t end in a cliffhanger!

Excerpt

“Neither of us has been in a serious relationship in years.”

“That doesn’t mean anything.” I stand and slide my feet into the Jimmy Choos. “You haven’t exactly been waiting around, have you?”

“Damn right I haven’t been waiting around.” He doesn’t get up, but his firm hold on my wrist stops me from walking away. “I’m not Rhyson.”

I look down at him, frowning my confusion.

“What do you mean?”

“Remember when Kai put Rhyson in the friend zone?”

Of course I do. For a long time, my sister-in-law Kai denied the attraction between her and Rhyson.

“Yeah, so?”

“When Kai wasn’t checking for Rhys, I assumed he had to be sleeping with other girls.” Grip shrugs. “I mean, he and Kai were just friends. But, nope. He said he only wanted Kai and didn’t sleep with anyone else.”

“Then you’re right.” I tug at my wrist, but he holds on tight. “You’re definitely not Rhyson.”

“It was months, Bristol. She shut him out for months. Not years.”

“I’m not shutting you out.” I release a tired breath. “I’m living my life, and you’re living yours.”

“Right.” He nods and turns his mouth down at the corners. “So, if you won’t be with me, then I’ll fuck whoever the hell I want. If you have a problem with that, you know what to do about it.”

For a moment, our eyes tangle in the dimness. His words sink into my flesh like briars. Every word out of his mouth only proves that I’m right to get out of here. That I’m right not to give in. If I ever gave him a chance and he fucked around on me . . . I’ve seen what that looks like. It looks like a woman as strong as my mother reduced to pathetic, teary drunkenness.

“It’s none of my business.” I shift my eyes away from him and to the glittering city skyline just beyond the rooftop.

“It’s none of your business until you say it is.”

I force myself to look back.

“Don’t hold your breath, Grip.” I say my next words with deliberation. “I mean, it’s not like I’m sitting around saving it, either.”

He pulls me forward, and I press my hand to the hardness of his chest so I don’t fall into him. My knee supports me, pressed against his on the couch.

“Are you poking me?” One strong hand wraps around the back of my thigh, anger marking his expression. “Do you want to know if it bothers me when you fuck other guys?”

I just stare at him unblinkingly. He presses my leg, urging me forward until I’m fully on the couch, fully on him, one knee on either side of his legs, facing him. Straddling him.

“It makes me want to set the world on fire.” His words come softly, but the truth roars in his eyes. “To think of you with them.”

Blog Tour: Love Profound by Kelly Elliott

 

 

 

I write about love, but I’ve never experienced it. Sure, I’ve been with guys that I cared about. Even thought I found ‘the one’. He turned out to be the frog and not the prince.

A few Frank Sinatra songs and a wildly handsome cowboy who calls me Darlin’, will have me second guessing everything I ever thought I knew about love.

Does happily ever after really exist…or is it only something I write about in books?

Love Profound is book two in the Cowboys and Angels series.

MY REVIEW:

Seriously, Kelly has done it yet again. I flew through this book like a crazy person which happened for Lost Love as well. I don’t know what it is about this series, but I can’t stop reading. Seriously, though. Cowboys and the whole “darlin'” thing?! GETS. ME. EVERY. TIME. I’m a puddle. I just can’t with southern guys, I become a puddle of emotions.
Seriously, I know I keep saying “seriously” but I can’t even form coherent sentences when it comes to writing a review for Kelly’s books; every book I’ve read, I’ve swooned hard core. There’s not one book yet that I haven’t absolutely adored.
I can’t get over how much I love her stories and her southern men!!! I’m so excited to see the rest of the gang’s stories and how each of them will get their HEA. There is one character who, I won’t mention for spoiler reasons, but is in the beginning, who I’m very curious now for. Will they get an HEA? Will we see the character again? What was the significance in the character?! This character was so interesting and I love the part was played. I will forever be curious what happens!

Blog Tour: Until it Fades by K.A. Tucker

ABOUT UNTIL IT FADES:

Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania (population three thousand outside of tourist season).

And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed date, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has rescued: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.

Catherine has already had her fifteen minutes of fame and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works. For a time.

But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. There’s an immediate connection, and it’s more electric than the bond of two people who endured a traumatic event. It’s something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle; something she is afraid to trust.

Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine…before the spark fades?

My Review:

This is my first time reading a romance book by KA Tucker. The only other book I’ve read by her was He Will Be My Ruin (which I loved!). So I knew going in that I’d probably enjoy this book as well, and I did. I couldn’t put the book down! I had to keep going!!

What immediately caught my attention about this book was a single mom. Now, I’m a sucker for these kinds of books so I was excited to see what this on was about! It’s not a heavy book, it’s pretty light and fun to read.

Now, this can definitely be classified as slow burn for sure. I just wanted to push Catherine and Brett together and just say “okay, now KISS!”.

Now I’m even more pushing myself to read her other books because I know for sure I’ll love those too. I absolutely love KA Tucker’s writing and I’ve heard so many rave that her writing is amazing as well in her others.

I adored this book! I’m gonna be thinking about this book for weeks to come because this is one that won’t leave my mind for a while.

Blog Tour: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

the-seven-husbands-of-evelyn-hugo-9781501139239_hr

ABOUT THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO:

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband, David, has left her, and her career has stagnated. Regardless of why Evelyn has chosen her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn’s life unfolds—revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love—Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn’s story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.

Written with Reid’s signature talent for “creating complex, likable characters” (Real Simple), this is a fascinating journey through the splendor of Old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means—and what it takes—to face the truth.

MY REVIEW: 

Thank you to Simon and Schuster/Atria and NetGalley for providing an ARC for an honest review.

FAVORITE BOOK OF THE YEAR. This book is everything. I sobbed for a good 30 minutes for the last 10-15% of the book. This book was nothing like I expected it to be and it was everything I expected in a TJR book. This book was so much more than the seven husbands in her life and the romance, it was about her life and the struggles she went through. And let me tell you, it wasn’t an easy life for her.

You never know what route TJR will take with her stories. She always takes you by surprise and usually always leaves you hanging and wondering what is going to happen next.

I would classify this more as woman’s lit and not romance. I’m not one to read that genre, but since last night I have been SWEARING up and down by this book trying to get other friends to read it. (and failing miserably). I just want to tell them what happens so they will understand how much I loved this book. But I don’t want to spoil anything for them because it’ll just ruin the entire story. But how exactly do you push people to read this amazing book!? That is the question because I know a lot of people will adore this book like I did. Some may not like it and there’s nothing wrong with that! It’s still an amazing story from a VERY talented writer!

This is now my 3rd time reading one of her books and I’m still swearing by her books. Though, now this one takes the cake of the other 2 and is now one of my favorite books probably of all time. The other 2 books I’m referencing to is Maybe in Another Life and One True Loves. This book is so beautiful, so real, and very emotional. I cannot stress how much I need people to read this because this is just one of those everyone needs to read and you will see after reading. Promise.

Blog Tour: Shacking Up by Helena Hunting

shacking-up-helena-hunting-709x1024

I’ve read a couple of Helena’s books in the past and have loved them! This being no different. I love that there was still that humor that Helena is known for in this book because I was worried going in, the humor wouldn’t be there. I was wrong; because there were so many times I couldn’t help but burst out laughing. Or.. wanting to throw my Kindle and burn it because Bancroft has a FREAKING TARANTULA as a PET. Nope. Just nope. I praise Ruby because if it were me, the mention of even the tiniest spider has me running in the opposite direction for my life.

I also love the male characters Helena brings to life; they are always panty dropping material and Bancroft is definitely no exception to that.

This was definitely a slow burn type of book; but I promise it was worth it in the end. Just wait for Bancroft… I mean, that’s all you need right?! No further explanation!? LOOK AT THAT COVER!!!

I was also excited to see that this will not be the only book in this world; there will be a sequel that will follow (not sure on characters yet). I cannot wait to read the sequel whenever it releases!

Review Release Blitz: Sweet Cheeks by K. Bromberg

sweetcheeks

sweetcheeks_frontcoverAn all new second chance love story by the New York Times Bestselling author of the beloved Driven series.

It all started with the invitation. To my ex-fiance’s new wedding.

I should have ignored it. Thrown it away. Set it afire. But I didn’t. I replied.

With a plus one.

And then my assistant accidentally mailed it.

Enter Hayes Whitley. Mega-movie star. The man who has captured the hearts of millions. But I gave him mine years ago. He was my first love. He was my everything. Right until he up and left to chase his dreams without so much as a simple goodbye.

When he showed up out of the blue ten years later, I should have known to steer clear of him. I should have rejected his offer to take me to my ex’s wedding. I should have never let him kiss me.

But I didn’t.

And now we’re left wondering if the pieces of the life we once shared still fit together somehow. First loves are hard to forget. The question is, do we want to forget? Or do we risk the chance and see what happens next?

ADD TO GOODREADS

what i thought

I really enjoyed this book. Second chance romances are some of my favorite reads and this wasn’t an exception. I have been so excited to dive into more of K. Bromberg’s books after devouring the first 3 Driven books plus the novella companion to those 3 books.

I think fans of J. Daniel’s Sweet Addiction will enjoy this. It’s similar in that both of our female leads own a bakery and love to bake. I like trying to draw similarities so hopefully that convinces at least one person; worth a try right? :)

You can’t help but love Hayes; I adored the flashback and the last 15% of the book. It’s what completely won me over for him. Once you finish the book, hopefully you’ll understand why I loved him so much by the end of the book.

I’ve always been intrigued by actress/actor books; Hayes being the actor in the book. I always like to see how someone from Hollywood falls in love (or back in love) with someone who has absolutely no connection to that world. Leads me to believe that one day Nick Jonas or Channing Tatum or Liam Hemsworth will come find me one day. ;) — A girl can dream right? :)

I’m trying to stay away from my giddy and gushing in my reviews and hopefully I’ve done just that. I loved this book – that’s all I can say without just gushing. :)

dsc_0087New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.

On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift), and a novella (UnRaveled). She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out November 14th.

Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (2 books: The Player, The Catch) and the Everyday Heroes series (3 books: Cuffed, Combust, and Cockpit). She’s also writing a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series that will be out in February 2017.

Blog Tour & Review: Swear on This Life by Renee Carlino

swear on this life

Swear on This Life by Renee Carlino
on August 9th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Pages: 320
Source: ARC copy from publisher
Buy on Amazon
Goodreads

When a bestselling debut novel from mysterious author J.Colby becomes the literary event of the year, Emiline reads it reluctantly. As an adjunct writing instructor at UC San Diego with her own stalled literary career and a bumpy long-term relationship, Emiline isn’t thrilled to celebrate the accomplishments of a young and gifted writer.

Yet from the very first page, Emiline is entranced by the story of Emerson and Jackson, two childhood best friends who fall in love and dream of a better life beyond the long dirt road that winds through their impoverished town in rural Ohio.

That’s because the novel is patterned on Emiline’s own dark and desperate childhood, which means that “J. Colby” must be Jase: the best friend and first love she hasn’t seen in over a decade. Far from being flattered that he wrote the novel from her perspective, Emiline is furious that he co-opted her painful past and took some dramatic creative liberties with the ending.

The only way she can put her mind at ease is to find and confront “J. Colby,” but is she prepared to learn the truth behind the fiction?

what i thought

This was my second book I’ve read by Renee Carlino and so far this is my favorite. This quickly became an all time favorite book for me and will most likely make it onto my top reads of this year. This is so different from typical NA romance books. Renee Carlino is a fantastic writer if you are not familiar with her books…

I love the whole story behind this. It’s a book within a book. How the story unfolds and how our main character, Emiline finds herself as well as learning about her past in one of the most COOLEST ways!

Who doesn’t love second chance romances?! I EAT THOSE UP! Second chances make some of the sweetest stories ever because of the relationship in the beginning – I just find them the best. I love that the characters have known each other pretty much their entire lives, became best friends, hung out with each other, grew up together, E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.

I always find writing reviews for books that I absolutely adore are the hardest to write. There’s nothing to pick at because it was all done PERFECTLY. All I want to do is just gush about this book. It’s very difficult to find the right words to fully describe my love for this book!

Renee has such a unique writing style – it’s just so pretty!
Have I convinced you to buy a copy yet? Seriously… This book is just gush-worthy. Everything about this is just gorgeous!!!!!
