Release Blitz - No Vacancy by Stephanie Rose

Can a summer fling become the love of a lifetime?

Title: No Vacancy
Author: Stephanie Rose
Release Date: October 28, 2019

Can a summer fling become the love of a lifetime?

Perpetual good girl Caterina Longo is dependable to a fault. At 33, she’s never called in sick. Never had a one-night stand. Never taken a chance in her entire life. When she walks in on a cheating ex and sees everything wrong with her life, she takes off on a solo vacation, busting out of her comfort zone and into the arms of a guy she never saw coming.

Joe Hunter has no room for distractions. Making his restaurant a success and proving his worth to his family—and himself—is his sole focus. At least it is until a beautiful stranger, in search of fried food and a shoulder, wanders in one night.

Is two weeks of unexpected, life-altering passion all they’re meant to share? What happens when vacation ends and real life takes over?

Oh my lord!!!! No Vacancy is such a heartwarming and gorgeous romance that made me feel so good and full of warmth and love for these characters. It’s low on angst and so goddamn romantic. I couldn’t ask for more. The steam is off the charts thanks to Joe and his filthy mouth. He’s such a good man and it was amazing to see him with his parents, Samantha and Lucas who has their own book Always You, and with his brother in law Owen, from Finding Me. No Vacancy can easily be read as a standalone but for me who’s read the other books it was a special treat. 
The Second Chances series is all about the family bond and friendships and here it was good to see the Hunter family supporting Joe when his relationship with Catarina got rocky.

Catarina and Joe hook up on the same night they first met. I was a little nervous about this premise. My first thought was they moved too fast and it’s too insta lust. Thankfully the author lets these two characters flourish. Their friendship evolve organically and grow into something deeper and stronger. Their courtship is a wonderful dance filled with conversations and romantic dates. They share an incredible and delicious chemistry wishing I could take Catarina’s place instead ;)
The relationship has profound effect on both of them resulting in them reevaluating their life and what they want for the future. Both Catarina and Joe have some great friends especially Joe’s colleague Dominic gives him a nudge when it’s needed. I’m so excited to know that he will get a book. 
No Vacancy is all romance and no drama. My needs and wishes was definitely fulfilled.

Power. Passion. Betrayal.
Kennedy Ryan delivers the epic first installment of the All the King's Men Duet.
Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition.
In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.
My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I'm determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and will do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.
And neither will I.

The Kingmaker is an epic love story that spans over a decade. When a story spans over such a long time I need a foundation for the two main characters to hold my attention. That foundation is laid in the author’s notes and when Lennix meets Maxim when she’s 17. An encounter that leaves an everlasting impression on both of them. A match has been struck and the flame keeps simmering until they meet again years later.
Their connection is immediate and so on point from their first meeting and even more palpable the second time. There’s no doubt about their chemistry. They’re fascinated and intrigued by one another. How they slowly get to know one another through words and intimacy is written flawlessly. A beautiful and sensual exploration between two souls who are destined for each other but the timing isn’t right.

Lennix is a member of the Yavapai-Apache Nation, an American Indian tribe. Her cultural background and heritage is a huge part of her and her identity. It shaped her to be that strong and powerful woman she grows up to be. She’s a formidable heroine. To complement her she needed a just as strong and determined opposite. A man who knows what he wants and takes it.
Maxim Cade is Lennix’s match. A man who grows up in wealth and destined to take over his father’s empire but Maxim has other ideas. He doesn’t share and agrees with his father’s  visions and beliefs. Maxim cuts himself off from his father and ventures out on his own. 

Lennix and Maxim. This couple. They complement each other beautifully. Their connection and love is so strong despite them being apart for years! That’s a testament to the author and her exquisite writing. She’s done her research. Not only in her characters but to the overall story. There’s a red thread from start to finish. 

The Kingmaker is so much than romance. It’s a powerful love story. A love story between a man and woman. It’s a story about a love between a woman and her heritage. Lennix’s cultural background is such a huge part of who she is. Kennedy Ryan has left no stones unturned when it comes to telling and exploring Lennix past. I was fully immersed in her story and that’s all because of Ryan’s dedication to her story and her attention to details. She takes on not only crucial historical moments but also important society topics such as climate change. It’s a tour de force in flawless storytelling. 
The Kingmaker is a powerful tale of two people who goes after what they want. It’s sensual, thrilling and suspenseful. I stated at the beginning of this review that it’s epic but epic is not a big enough word for The Kingmaker. Just read it and be blown away. I certainly was and still am. Brava!!

DO YOU DARE? (Truth and Dare Duet #1) by Lylah James




What happens when a dare goes too far?
Maddox Coulter. Reckless bad boy. Infamous playboy. My nemesis. And now my best friend.

Until it is.
For one of us, anyway.
I've always known he would be my downfall. But I trusted him to catch me.
He proved me wrong.
Maddox has gone too far, and I don’t know if I want to rein him in or push us further into dangerous territory.

I dare you.
Except this time, it's no simple dare. This could burn us to the ground.
"I dare you to fuck him."

Release Blast - Down Too Deep by J. Daniels

Two single parents and three adorable kids are 
about to have a summer they'll never forget in this sexy, heartwarming new novel of the New York Times bestselling series.

Following the sudden death of his wife, Nathan Bell spent nearly two years burying himself in work and neglecting his biggest responsibility: his daughter. Overcome with guilt, he wants to connect with little Marley, but he doesn't know how to do it alone. And then Jenna Savage throws him a lifeline.

A single mom of twins, Jenna is more than capable of taking care of Nathan's adorable two-year-old and wants to help Nathan however she can. As the days go by and her attraction to Nathan grows, she can't help wondering what might happen if they became a family for real. And the closer everyone becomes, the more right it feels.

Falling in love forces Nathan to face his biggest fear, and when hearts -- both big and little -- are on the line, the only thing scarier than needing Jenna and her kids so much is losing them all.

I have been waiting for Nathan and Jenna. For so long. Nathan is a widower, alone with  his two old daughter Marley, and Jenna is a single mother to her eight year old twins Olivia and Oliver. 
Jenna is a wonderful mother who enjoys being just that. A dedicated and loving mother whereas Nathan has other priorities. Work and keeping himself busy so he can’t think about his own failures and guilt especially when it comes to him bonding with his daughter and his deceased wife. 
Jenna and Nathan had lovely chemistry and they bonded over their children. I enjoyed how Jenna made Nathan fall in love again with being a father . Also how Jenna grew closer to his daughter and Nathan to hers. They became a family and they fell in love.
The other characters from the series made appearances too. Jenna’s brother Brian and his girl Syd along with her bestie Tori which was great.

The reason for my rating all comes down to me and my expectations. I felt the focus was centered too much around the children and they took too much attention away from Nathan and Jenna as a couple. 65% revolved around Nathan and Jenna being with the children and it just became too repetitive and not much happened. I’m a huge fan of the single parent trope but here I felt the kids overshadowed their parents story wise. I would’ve liked more of their courtship. Of them exploring one another. 
Down Too Deep is the final book of the Dirty Deed series and despite my issues with it and it not being my favorite of the four books it still had great closure to all the characters. I’m still a huge fan of the author and I will continue to read her books. This just didn’t live up to my own expectations.

Sneak Peek - The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan


“A dazzling, thought-provoking, layered romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat. A round of applause for one of the best books of 2019."

-- L.J. Shen, USA Today bestselling author

All The King’s Men Duet, an all-new powerful and emotional duet from RITA ® Award winning author Kennedy Ryan, is coming October 28th, and we have the first sneak peek!

Power. Passion. Betrayal.
RITA® Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the epic first installment of the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition. In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.
My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and would do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.
And neither will I.

Sneak Peek from The Kingmaker
A fat raindrop plops on my nose, sliding down the bridge, followed by another and then a wet succession. “Aw, hell.” I pull my jacket up on my elbows to provide some shelter for the two of us, but the rain trebles, more coming down and faster. “We still have four blocks before my place,” I say. “Sorry, but the weather is unpredictable this time of year.” Rain has already started molding the thin dress to her body, faithfully hugging every swell and curve. A hard shiver runs through her and her teeth chatter. “Come on.” I grab her hand and duck into an alleyway. An overhang provides a tiny patch of dry ground and shelter. “We may be able to wait it out. These showers sprout up and pass over like they never happened.” We’re sandwiched between two buildings and there is barely any light, but the moonlight finds her, sculpting shadows beneath her cheekbones and etching dark crescents of her lowered lashes. The rain has smeared her mascara, and water-slicked hair flattens to her head. She should look bedraggled, but she manages to be the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen. I bend, tentative at first, even after last night. Even after making love to her again this morning when I chased her up the stairs. I approach slowly, giving her the chance to refuse, but she doesn’t. She meets me, eyes open, lips eager, hands bunched in my wet hair. It’s a freshwater kiss, made of rain and passion. WANT MORE?

Cover Reveal - Fallen Prince by Mia Asher

Fallen Prince - CR banner.jpg
Fallen Prince, Book One in the Fallen Kingdom Duet, an enemies-to-lovers forbidden romance of epic proportions by Mia Asher is coming October 24, 2019
Fallen Prince AMAZON.jpg
Two brothers. One girl. A tragic love story.
Twelve years ago I met them—the Van Buren Princes.
One was dazzlingly handsome.
Radiant like the sun.
The perfect knight in shining armor.
It was so easy to be blinded by him.
Blinded by his warm touch and kisses that tasted like summer.
It should’ve been so easy to fall in love with him …
The other was mercilessly vicious.
The most beautiful fallen angel.
Born with a bulletproof heart.
It was so easy to hate him.
Hate the captivating smiles hiding a broken soul and his cruelly stolen kisses.
He broke my heart in two.
But I should’ve known my place.
Girls like me don’t get to love the Van Burens without paying a price—‘an eye for an eye, a heart for a heart,’ he said.
Now I know better.
I’ve come back to where it all started that summer.
Back to that gilded hell.
The only difference is …
This time I am just like them.

SDSD FINAL Paperback 6x9_BW_350 copy (1).png
Max Kaufman was kicked out of his home as a teen and his life has been an uphill battle ever since. From addiction and living on the streets, to recovery and putting himself through nursing school, he’s spent the last ten years rebuilding his shattered sense of self. Now he’s taken a job as a private caretaker to Edward Marsh III, the president and CEO of one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world.

Silas Marsh is set to inherit the family fortune, but his father is determined his heir be the “perfect” son. Before Silas can take over the company and end its shady business practices, he must prove himself worthy…and deny his true nature. Silas must choose: stand up to his father by being true to himself and his undeniable feelings for Max. Or pretend to be someone he is not in order to inherit everything.
