Breaking Gravity by Autumn Grey

Breaking Gravity (Fall Back #2) by Autumn Grey
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Sarah Hansen, Okay Creations
Release Date: March 29, 2017
 
Synopsis
I've always followed my dreams with ruthless determination. My life was going well. Success was at my fingertips. Until it wasn't. All it took was three seconds to send my world crashing down around me, ripping my dreams to shreds. Then I meet her, with her large hazel eyes that slay me at first glance. And everything starts to make sense again. I try to keep my distance. To remind myself I am her mentor. That we can't be more, but every time I push away, I'm pulled deeper into her. 
 The line between student and teacher is blurring. 
 One kiss. 
 One taste. 
 They’re all it would take to cross the line.


First I want to make one thing clear. 
I'm claiming Nathaniel Rowe. 
Yes, I'm going to fight Elon 
for him but I don't care. 
He's mine and became that from his first appearance in the prologue and in his classroom towering over a sleeping Elon. 

Nate's presence oozes male and assertiveness. In his class he's in his element and doing what he knows best. 
Dedicated to his craft. 
Teaching about music. 
Out of the classroom he's so much more. 
He's a loving uncle to his niece and nephew, a rock of an older brother to Izzy whom he loves with all his heart. Supportive of his best friend Bennett who's married to Izzy.
Elon is so much more than a quiet mouse. She's an observer and only speaks when she has something to say and believe me she has plenty to say when it matters. 
Her relationship with her two sisters Nor, Elise and her nieces are her everything.
 She loves playing her cello and reading her books.

Nate and Elon are two flawed people who have a lot in common but the most obvious is that they're fighters. 
They fight for the people they love and as the story progresses they start to fight for themselves too and what they want and need in life.
They've both experienced loss and trauma which has caused them both to feel guilt, loose faith in love, themselves and also what they think they deserve 
or are worthy of from life. 
When they cross paths as teacher and student in Nate's classroom suddenly everything changes and yet everything becomes totally clear to both of them. 
Their attraction is undeniable and instantaneous. 
I felt it!! 
Their chemistry and want for each other jumped off the pages. 
I literally got chills and goosebumps at times. I loved how they both flirted and couldn't help themselves when they were around one another. 
I especially loved Elon's brazenness. 
She showed another side. A sexier one. 
She took charge. 
Nate was in another league. 
He's a beast when it comes to his woman. 
He cares, wants and loves his little, but strong wolf. I love how their relationship slowly evolves into more. 
It's a slow burn but a sizzling hot one.

Breaking Gravity is so much more than a teacher/student story. 
It's about two people who's not looking for love but find it in the most unexpected and inconvenient place. 
They're both haunted by theirs pasts and their choices which has led them to believe that there is no such thing as a happy ever after or a second chance. 
It's about growth and redemption. 
But most of all it's about love and how far you will go for it. 
No matter the consequences.

Autumn Grey has created an intoxicating story about forbidden love with so many layers. The story is well developed and every character have their place and importance to the story. 
I love Nate's sister Izzy 
and her husband Bennett. 
They're so much fun.
Autumn Grey delivers in spades when it comes to romance and angst. 
Her prose have never been better. 
Flawless and filled with so much depth and love for this story. 
Breaking Gravity is definitely a must read.

The Brave Line Release Blitz

now live cover pic brave line ebook
Title: The Brave Line
Author: Kate Stewart
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 17
Goodreads
Synopsis
She is a five foot seven long list of things he can’t have.

He is a determined cop, desperate to keep his heart sealed behind his badge.

Michelle is a survivor. With a fresh perspective on life, she trades her tragic past in California for the coastal waters of Charleston. Fueled by a new career as a dispatcher, she’s determined not to let her scars weigh her down. She apologizes for nothing, especially her insatiable need for a certain police officer.

Rowdy is a newly minted sergeant dedicated to his job, but the life of a Charleston police officer has never been more dangerous. With his need to take order of a city spiraling out of control, the last thing he wants is an entanglement with a mouthy dispatcher. But, there’s just one problem. He can’t get enough of her.

As the heat rises between the unlikely pair, so does the tension.

Three months of summer was all it took to shake their foundations, rattle their walls, and bring them crashing down.

It was lust.

It was love.

It was real.

And it would have been perfect . . . if it wasn't already over.

Note to reader: This book has several elements and explores topics that some may consider triggers. For mature audiences only. Explicit sex, violence and language.

  


Holy shit! 
Kate Stewart delivers again and again. 
No matter what she throws at me I always connect with her main characters and her stories hit me right where it hurts and matters the most. 
My heart and soul. 
This time it's more deep and profound. 
The story and its topics are more relevant than ever when you look at society today. The Brave Line is real and authentic. 
Stewart captured perfectly what and how life of a cop works and how it not only affects him/her and their families. 
It's described and depicted perfectly with a rawness and intensity.

The struggles Rowdy and Michelle deal with because of certain trauma in their pasts also makes them more human and relatable. 
I love the direction 
Stewart takes the characters, 
the important topics and the story. 
There isn't a dull moment whatsoever. 
I was invested in Michelle and Rowdy's journey. 
Individually and together.
BL teaser 2 now
Rowdy is the cop who doesn't do relationships because of his job 
self preservation and also 
the protection of others. 
He knows what he wants from a woman when he gets her in bed, 
but outside of that he cares about the people that matter most to him. 
In this case April and soon to be Michelle.
BL teaser 1 now
Michelle is a fun, honest, wild and fearless woman with so many hidden sides. 
She works at the Charleston Police Call center. With what she has experienced in her past and how far she's come it's nothing but admirable. She's definitely fought for her life to get where she is today.
Rowdy and Michelle's chemistry is hot like lava. Literally explosive! Damn! They were phenomenal together. In and out of bed. I especially enjoyed the scenes where they got to know one another on a more personal and deeper level. Yes, it wasn't easy because Rowdy had his guard up but Michelle did her best. They connected through deeper conversations and slowly 
peeled layers off of each other.
The pace of the story flowed effortlessly. The relationship between Rowdy and Michelle was well developed with the perfect amount of depth to both of them. How their relationship evolved was just one of my favorite things about The Brave Line. It wasn't rushed whenever they hit a bump in the road in their relationship. 
The story took its time which was needed because of its serious topics and I appreciated that. 
It made me love Rowdy and Michelle even more. Their friendship with April is another highlight and made me smile. 
Her support of both Rowdy and Michelle proved why they were such a close unit.
BL teaser 4
I'm a very huge fan of Stewart's work and The Brave Line is phenomenal. 
In my opinion her best work yet! 
I love the main characters, Rowdy and Michelle. The topics of the book, especially the police force and how they're viewed in society is important. 
Stewart handles the topic with such care and respect. She has a strong and loud voice and it comes across beautifully in 
The Brave Line. 
Her prose is poignant and stronger than ever. Her mixture of romance, realism and suspense is executed flawlessly
 and to perfection!!! 
I was on the edge of my seat numerous times and my emotions went through the wringer. A powerful story with an important and powerful message. 
I bow down to you, Kate Stewart. 
You deserve the praise!

RELEASE BOOST~The Boxer by Piper Rayne




Title: The Boxer
Series: Modern Love #2
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: March 1, 2017



Blurb

“Who knew a bad boy could mend a broken heart."

What does a girl do after she discovers her fiancé is a cheating bastard?

In my case, I performed the ritual implosion of all scorned women. I drowned my sorrows in cases of white wine, wallowed in gallons of ice cream, and ignited a bonfire to burn away every damn remnant of his existence. Six months later, the only result was a permanent impression of my ass on the couch.

Adventure Dating my friends dared.
A new and exciting opportunity they said.
I thought they were crazy, but I’m not one to back down from a challenge, so I signed up for the entire four-week deal.

That’s where I saw HIM. Lucas Cummings. He isn’t the classic rich boy I usually end up with. The one whose idea of working up a sweat is waiting for his margarita to be served on the beach. Nope. He’s a rough and tough bad boy that all fathers warn their daughters about. You know the type. Cocky swagger, chiseled jaw—the ‘V’.

SOLD, I said to myself, until I discovered he was so much more than just a BOXER.

Left Hook.

Right to the heart.

Excerpt

My mouth waters as the guy who propositioned me a half hour ago strips off his robe, revealing a set of abs I’m quite positive could wash the panties I just soaked. Jesus, he’s hot, with not one ounce of fat on him. His black silk shorts have a white band of fabric around his waist that says Raging Bull.

Lennon grabs my cup out of my hand.

“Hey,” I say, reaching for it.

“No, girl, you’re gonna want to be stone sober for this one. You don’t want to be like Whit the first night she and Cole got together.” She takes a sip, but I grab the cup back, knowing I need it more than I thought.

Especially when he glances down and a perfect set of sparkling teeth emerge, revealing a smile that has me gripping Lennon’s arm for support. Then he bites his bottom lip for a second, and my fingernails dig into Lennon’s bicep.

“Damn, I wish I saw him first.” Lennon’s voice sounds as dreamy as I feel. “You better ride him like you’re a fucking rodeo star, girl.” And there’s the Lennon I know and love.

The vodka man, now known as Lucas Cummings, turns around, continuing to bounce on his toes.

Sammie’s voice rings out once more, and another boxer enters with four bodyguards and a red silk robe. He weaves through the ropes and stares down Lucas. Lucas laughs, egging him on, and my gut twists.

“The undefeated Brock ‘Lights Out’ Hayes,” Sammie announces, and the guy jumps around the ring, waving both fists in the air.

Lucas turns back toward us, but his attention is focused solely on another guy. A small man rushes in the ring, putting Vaseline on his cheeks and forehead.

“This is the real deal.” The excitement in Lennon’s voice increases.

Lucas keeps peeking over at me, an uptick on his lips each time. Eventually, the guy who I assume is his manager glances over our way to see what’s distracting him.

Whit tugs on my arm and leans in close. “Someone has caught the boxer’s attention,” she whispers and I wish my cheeks didn’t heat like they are.

“Because he’s thinking of all the ways he’s going to fuck her later,” Lennon adds, turning her head for only a second.

“What?” Whitney asks, in the dark on the whole situation.

“I met him at the bar. He asked me to meet him after,” I say, and Whitney’s eyes crinkle as if she doesn’t think that’s a good idea. So thinks the girl who resorted to Tinder.

“Like you’d do that,” she says confidently, and I bite my lower lip. The lip that is now a little tingly from what I assume is the Everclear. “Tahlia, don’t you think you should wait for your second one-night stand for someone of his…caliber?”

Cole peeks over her shoulder. “I met him a few weeks ago when I came to watch the fights. Seems like an okay guy.”

Whitney raises her hand, and it smacks Cole in the face. He grabs his nose.

“Oh, I’m sorry.” She glances at him for a second before her eyes set on me again like a mother scolding her teenager.

“No, babe, it’s my fault. I know better than to try to get in the middle of a conversation between you three.” Cole touches his nose a few times and wiggles it around.

“Guess you’re not the kinda guy to jump in that ring then.” Lennon laughs and points at him. Cole raises his eyebrows in her direction.

“Are you challenging me, Lennon?” Cole asks and the three of us laugh.

Whitney waves her hands around. “Forget that. Tahlia, you can’t go have a one-night stand with someone like him.”

I look past Whitney to Cole. “I think you need to go over the one-night stand rules. First one being, you don’t know the person. Second qualification, you pick the hottest guy.”

Cole laughs, but Whitney only becomes more agitated. I’m not sure why she’s giving me trouble. She’s the one who brought me here tonight.

“Tahl,” she sighs.

“Whit,” I mimic her tone. “I’m a grown woman. I’ll be fine.”

Lennon elbows me a few times. “The blood is about to spew,” she says and jumps up, screaming, “Go, black shorts!”

Lucas turns around to Lennon and then cocks an eyebrow in her direction. For a second, jealousy spikes within me, but when his gaze turns to me and he smirks, I melt. Unable to deal with the thought that the guy up in the ring could be inside of me in a few hours, I tip the rest of my Everclear and down it.

SweetVictory500

About Sweet Victory:

Sophie Caldwell might not like asking for help, but help is what she needs if she’s going to save her family business from her uncle. Her grandma left one rule for Sophie if she wants to gain sole ownership before she’s thirty—get married. Yeah, fat chance of that happening since she hasn’t had a boyfriend in years, and now she can’t get her uncle off her ass. British-born MMA fighter Xander James has never lost a fight, and he’s not about to start now. He’s on the brink of a comeback that could make him a UFC champion, but his landlord wants to take away his last chance by shutting down his gym. Hell, no. Fortunately, his landlord’s niece has a problem of her own. 
Time for a proposal she can’t refuse.


I love this series!  
Maxwell made a great 
addition with this story.  
Xander and Sophie are stuck between a rock and a hard place fighting to keep 
what they want the most.  
They were both attractive and drawn to one another but never planned on acting on it.  Xander is definitely a man's man and makes no excuse for behavior. 
He's very upfront and can express what he does and doesn't want,
until of course his heart gets tangled with Sophie's. 
She's a woman living her dream.  
Humble and extremely loving 
and family oriented.  
These two dance an amazing Tango. 
They are committed and driven to complete the task at hand.  
Their friends to lovers romance was written impeccably.  
They both had major investments in their goals and worked hard to achieve them.  They fell in love effortlessly. I was so fascinated from the first word to the last!
Just like real life sometimes people are so focused on their own issues they get in their own way.  That is exactly what happened to both of them, but Sophie suffered this in much more depth.   
 I enjoyed seeing the rest of the characters from the series, it made me more invested in their story and how they fit into the group. 
Never once been disappointed by Maxwell and I have a serious weakness for this series.

Title: Untouchable
Series: Unexpected Love #1
Author: Isabel Love
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs
Release Date: April 6, 2017



Blurb

The first time I see her, I want to touch her. Drawn to the sensual way she moves her body, I have to dance with her. Dancing leads to touching, touching leads to watching her come undone in my arms, but then she runs off without telling me her name—leaves me wondering if she was even real.

The second time I see her, I want to thank my lucky stars our paths have crossed once again—until I realize she’s off limits.

The universe must be playing a joke on me right now, because the sexy goddess that has been starring in my fantasies for the past couple weeks? She’s my new boss.

Translation: untouchable.

Except…

I’ve already touched her. And I want to do it again.

Excerpt

“What’s your name?” he asks me.

“Can we just dance?” I’m not looking to start anything; an anonymous dance is all I want tonight. I’m never going to see this guy again, so exchanging names and getting to know each other is pointless.

He nods, not put off by my refusal to tell him my name. His blue eyes stare into mine, and I am hypnotized. His intense gaze sets my body on fire, and his lips—god, they’re full. As he bites his lower lip, I get the urge to bite it, too. I watch those lips curve into a knowing, sexy grin then my gaze moves from his mouth to his eyes and I feel myself flush. Electricity sparks hot between us, and my body feels like a live wire.

His big hands splay across my back and he leans down to talk directly into my ear. “Can I kiss you?”

I nod and lean up to meet his mouth with mine. Soft—his lips are so soft. His fingers thread into my hair and he pulls me even closer. My eyes flutter shut and I’m lost, my world reduced to the feel of his lips pressing into mine, gently at first, then hungrily.

His tongue licks against my lips and I open my mouth, our tongues tangling. My fingers find their way up his neck and I allow myself to touch his face. Mmmm, his stubble is soft. God, everything about this guy feels good. We kiss and kiss and I feel boneless, breathless. I’m clutching at him and he’s gripping me tight. It’s like his mouth is a magnet pulling me to him.

He makes me forget that we’re in a crowded club. That I’m a respectable physician in charge of a department. That I don’t need a man to be happy. That I usually feel as if I’m juggling a million pieces in the air every day and if I don’t stay on top of everything, all the pieces will come tumbling down. I forget everything; his kiss melts it all away.

Instead, I feel….alive. Surrounded by this strong man, in his arms, practically fused to his mouth, I feel…safe. Electric and desired. Judging by the size of the erection rubbing my stomach from behind his jeans, he is as turned on as I am. We grind into each other, and his heart beats so fast I can feel it thump against my chest.

Soon enough, our bodies start to move in a way that mimics sex. His hands skim down my body, from my hips to my bare legs. His touch is hot, waking up each of the nerve endings in its path. He squeezes my thighs then starts trailing his fingers up again, feeling my bare skin. Up and up, his fingers reach the hem of my dress, and he inches it higher, exposing more skin. Both of his hands end up just under my ass, touching the elastic of my underwear.

Oh god. I’m so wet. Just one inch farther and he’ll be able to feel what he’s doing to me. I feel his groan rather than hear it, the vibration in his throat a pained sound. He rests his forehead against mine and closes his eyes, hands still touching me, toying with the edges of my panties.

“Can I touch you?” he rasps into my ear.

I should push him away. I should be appalled that a total stranger wants to feel me up in the middle of a crowded dance floor. I should disentangle myself from him right now and leave.

But I don’t want to.

Promo Post~Maggie Riley's Reckless Romance




Title: Reckless Romance 
Author: Maggie Riley 
Genre: Romance 










Josh Lawson--he's got the body of an athlete, muscles galore, and thick, tousled bed head hair. He's always Mr. Serious, but when he smiles it transforms his entire face. I'd quietly lose my cool if that smirk were ever directed at me.

But playboys like him don't go for theatre nerds like me. Especially when the playboy in question is a strong silent type who is my opposite in every way.

I definitely am NOT in love with my best friend's brother. So why do I find myself dreaming/lusting over his broad shoulders and incredible arms? And why did we practically hook up on the dance floor at his sister's wedding? I can't get him out of my mind.

***

Reagan Bennett is not my type. She's happy, artistic, and deserves the real deal. I'm moody and only good for a one night stand. But after our impromptu sleepover, I can't get her out of my head.

She's got legs for miles. She's creative in all the right ways: she knows all the best spots in New York City and she's passionate about everything she does. Plus, her chocolate chip pancakes are killer.

She's everything good. I'm not gonna be the one to bring her down.

But the more time we spend together, the harder it is to keep my hands off her. I want her. Hell, I need her. It might be reckless, but it also might be love.
