Alessandra Torre - Filthy Vows review


What I LOVED about this book is that while the book starts in present time, we very quickly go back to how things began and see how this couple started. The chemistry between them is palpable and oh-so-delicious! I liked how Elle and Easton are just as passionate before marriage as they are in their marriage. Sure, circumstances have changed and things aren't how they thought they'd be but I enjoyed how realistic and relate able they are. Easton convinces Elle to share the deep thoughts she was having and now, how will things move forward? I was completely captivated. And while this book does have closure, I was excited to learn that Alessandra is not leaving them hanging! There will be another book about them! WOOT! This book is SUPER sexy, sweet, completely riveting and I couldn't devour it fast enough! Do yourself a favor and don't let this book pass you by!

Synopsis


Would you tell your husband everything?

Every torrid thought?
Every twisted fantasy?
The forbidden images that slink into your mind in your most vulnerable moments?

I shouldn't have. I hesitated to. But I did.

And my husband? He gave them all to me.

UNIVERSAL BUY LINK: mybook.to/THEDUETS

Gripping, heart-stopping, and an incredibly epic journey with a twist you'll never see coming. USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn, brings you a modern take on an old fashion romance that will leave you breathless and wanting more. 

This isn’t a story about a love triangle. There is no triangle involved.
This isn’t a story about an accidental pregnancy. Although having a baby with her . . . I would.
This isn’t a story about lies and deception, even though at times I’ve lied to myself.

No, this is my story.

A story about sacrifice.
A story about a man who fell in love with the wrong girl.
A story I wish I never had to tell.
I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.

One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks. Smart. Charming. Beautiful. Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind, my goals started to bend.

Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single interaction, I flew off course.


BOX SET of FOUR BOOKS
The Upside of Falling
The Downside of Love
The Left Side of Perfect
The Right Side of Forever

EXCERPT from THE UPSIDE OF FALLING

Head turned down, pushing the sleeves of his white Henley up his arms, he swaggers toward me. His jeans hang low on his hips, held up by the same brown belt he wore the other night. His narrow waist directs my eyes to the center of his jeans, and I can’t help wonder what might be behind the crotch of his pants.
 And then there is his chest. Barrel like, broad and prominent. His thick biceps showcase his strength, and the fabric of his shirt stretches over his shoulders and forearms. Having spent a lot of time at the gym, I’ve seen every body type, but Colby’s is different. He’s strong, built, but not like a body builder. His body seems to suggest the only kind of weight he’s been lifting is his own body, pushup after pushup. I can’t imagine there being barbells in his workouts, but I can imagine logs, cadets, and heavy machinery. He has working muscles, the kind you earn from hard, dedicated work on the field. In a word? 
Impressive.
 Walking up to Stryder, he grips his friend’s shoulder and says something into his ear. A smirk crosses Stryder’s face before he moves over to our side of the bowling alley and takes Colby’s place.
 Is he leaving? Already?
 Might as well at this point. It’s not like he’s going to talk to me, not after my pathetic attempt at a bet. I should have known I was going to hang out in the gutter all night. It’s where I usually am when I’m bowling. I blame the ball. The thing has a vendetta against me.
 Sighing, I prop my chin in my hand and watch Stryder expertly toss his ball down the lane, getting a strike . . . once again. And just like every other strike, he pumps his arm up in the air and celebrates. We get it, you’re good, no need to—
 “Hey.”
 That voice . . .
 Stunned, eyes wide, not able to move, not wanting to scare him away, I keep my eyes trained forward, soaking in that beautifully deep voice of his for a brief moment before saying, “Hey.”
 “Can I sit here?”
 Still keeping my eyes trained forward, I say, “Sure.”
 My body tingles with awareness of how close he is to me, that fresh laundry scent invading my senses, prickling the little hairs on my arm. My body leans toward his, wanting a little more, searching for anything else he might give me. I don’t know why he’s choosing to engage me in conversation, but I’m sure as hell not moving while he does.
 “Sorry about tonight,” he says and he actually sounds sincere.
 “Why are you sorry?” I mumble.
 Reaching around, he takes my cheek in his hand. The callouses on his palm rubbing against my skin is a welcome sensation. As I’m turned toward him, I steady my breathing. I’m having a hard time slowing my heart rate because of his close proximity, and the unexpected touch shooting a wave of heat through my veins.
 “I’m sorry you didn’t get to ask me any questions. I didn’t think you were going to suck that bad.” A playful smile tugs at his lips, and my heart sinks to the floor. Oh God, he’s so gorgeous, especially when he smiles.
 Matching his smirk, I say, “I didn’t think I was going to suck that bad either.”
 “I feel bad.”
 “You should.” That garners a laugh, deep and throaty, the sound cloaking me like a shield, protecting me from the outside world, bringing me into a little bubble where we are the only two that exist.
 “Ask me a question.”
 Shocked, I swallow hard and say, “Really?”
 He nods and holds up his fingers. “You get three.”
 “Oh, three? Wow, I feel like you just gave me the key to your soul.”
 Rolling his eyes, he adjusts his stance on the barstool and leans back, giving us some space, our knees still knocking into each other. “Easy killer; it’s just three questions.”
 “Yeah, three questions I didn’t have before.” Tapping my chin, I try to think of good questions, but now that I have him willing and waiting, nothing comes to mind. I wasn’t prepared for this, he caught me off-guard, and now I feel I can’t be strategic about my probing. “Hmm . . . what do you like to do on the weekends?”
 “Jump,” he answers.
 Searching his eyes, lips quirked, I say, “Uh, you’re going to have to be more specific than that. What kind of jumping are we talking here? Like jump roping? Because that seems kind of weird to do on the weekends, and if you tell me you’re in some kind of jump-roping club at the academy, I’m not going to believe you.”
 His lips curve up as he scratches the side of his jaw. “Jump out of airplanes.”
 Oh.
 Oh. 
That’s . . .
 Uh, that’s really hot.
 “So you just casually jump out of airplanes?”
 “I’m part of the Wings of Blue, the academy’s parachute team. We jump every day, at least two to three times a day after class and before dinner, depending on wind and ceiling limits. On the weekends, some of the guys, including Stryder and me, go to Springs East Airport and do civilian jumps. The more jumps we get in, the higher the chance we’ll be considered for big demonstrations, like parachuting into football games and major sporting events for the Rockies and Broncos.” Ummmm. Did anyone else just hear how many words he gifted me? And seriously? Does the man have no clue how incredibly sexy he is when he talks about something he loves? The expression on his face . . .
 “Wow, that’s . . . that’s really hot.” I chuckle. “Sorry, I don’t mean to fangirl over your parachuting, but I guess I wasn’t expecting that answer. You just jump out of planes?”
 He slowly nods. “Every day.”
 “Anything to get you up in the clouds, huh?”
 “Yeah,” he answers shyly, rubbing his jaw. “Okay, next question.”

Molly Fader - The McAvoy Sisters Book of Secrets review

Wow! This book was so completely captivating and very well written, that I didn't want to put this book down. We have the McAvoy women, two sisters, their mother and the next generations. All have lead different lives. Some of them not being what they started out wanting. I enjoyed the way we got each woman’s perspective at various points throughout the journey. The characters take the readers back in time to remember what happened in the past. I enjoyed the flow of this book and the way in which things are revealed to the reader. At times, the characters show just a hint of what’s to come before we’re taken to the next character. We see a teenage daughter growing up, wanting to be seen. We see a mom with two kids, one teenager and one infant, trying to juggle the stress of life. We see a sister/aunt coming back to help out her mother and her sister, and we see the mom, slowly losing to aging. It’s a struggle for each of them for different reasons but I enjoyed how Molly shows the importance of having family and how you can repair what was lost. This is one of those books that will stay with me long after The End. If you enjoy a wonderful read to get lost in, this is your book! Grab your copy today! 








“The talented Molly Fader will keep you turning the pages right down to the oh-so-satisfying final twist.” —Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author

What drove their family apart just might bring them back together…

It’s been seventeen years since the tragic summer the McAvoy sisters fell apart. Lindy, the wild one, left home, carved out a new life in the city and never looked back. Delia, the sister who stayed, became a mother herself, raising her daughters and running the family shop in their small Ohio hometown on the shores of Lake Erie.

But now, with their mother’s ailing health and a rebellious teenager to rein in, Delia has no choice but to welcome Lindy home. As the two sisters try to put their family back in order, they finally have the chance to reclaim what’s been lost over the years: for Delia, professional dreams and a happy marriage, and for Lindy, a sense of home and an old flame—and best of all, each other. But when one turbulent night leads to a shocking revelation, the women must face the past they’ve avoided for a decade. And there’s nothing like an old secret to bring the McAvoy women back together and stronger than ever.

With warm affection and wry wit, Molly Fader’s The McAvoy Sisters Book of Secrets is about the ties that bind family and the power of secrets to hold us back or set us free.

Lexi Blake - Once Upon A Time in Bliss review

Ooh, I was excited to get John Bishop’s story! I enjoyed the aspect that the reader is going back in time. Who is John Bishop and how did he find his way to Bliss and to Nell. Wellll, if you’ve been wondering that, now is the time to learn those answers! Nell is an interesting woman and very quirky. But John sees past what others see and wants to know this woman. Nell has never been drawn to a man like she is Henry. She is a  strong, independent woman and doesn’t like for anyone to tell her how to behave. I liked the element of danger Henry needs to protect Nell from and I liked watching how their relationship evolved. I thought their story was sweet and was perfect for them! Be sure not to miss this addition in the Nights In Bliss series! 







Re-released in a second edition with new content.

Go back in time to Bliss’s first happily ever after…

CIA operative John Bishop arrived in Bliss, Colorado, seeking a respite from the high-stakes game of blood and lies that sent him to the worst corners of the world. A week playing the role of vacationing professor Henry Flanders would recharge his batteries, especially if he found a gorgeous woman to occupy his time. 

Nell Finn has spent her life focused on helping others, but when she meets the tall and mysterious Henry Flanders, she can’t stop imagining what he might do for her. When Nell and her mother are threatened, Henry comes to her, offering his protection and comfort.

But as the threats escalate out of control, Henry discovers that the beautiful and innocent Nell is much more than a plaything. Can he save the woman he loves without exposing the secrets that would drive her away?

Holly Renee - The Wrong Prince Charming review





Release Date: July 15, 2019

Cover Design: Artist Regina Wamba

Photography: Perrywinkle Photography

Synopsis


Every little girl dreams of being swept off her feet by a charming Prince.

But my life was no fairy tale.

And in this kingdom called college, the rules went out the window.

I’d known golden boy, Theo Hunt, was the one for me since we were kids. My heart was his for the taking, but I had become nothing more than the MVP of the campus king’s friend-zone.

Easton Cole was a storm I couldn’t have predicted. He knocked me off my feet and stole my heart. But he was off limits. Not only was he was Theo’s frat brother, but he was the teacher’s assistant in English 101 and I was acing every test.

My heart was torn, my feelings tangled.

Because as soon as I noticed Easton, Theo finally noticed me.

I was in love with two guys, as different as night and day, but I could only have one.

I only hoped I didn’t choose The Wrong Prince Charming.

Hayley Faiman - Discovery cover reveal

Today we have the cover reveal for Discovery by Hayley Faiman! Check it out and be sure to pre-order your copy today!

Title: DiscoveryAuthor: Hayley FaimanGenre: Contemporary RomanceRelease Blitz: July 18th

About Discovery:

Lucas Black, Esquire. The name alone was an enigma. Dressed in a suit that cost more than my rent. Green eyes that danced and a cocky smile firmly planted on kissable lips. The rumors about him were true. I wasn’t ready for all that was Lucas Black. I knew it. I didn’t care. I was willing to take whatever he gave me.

Pre-Order the Duet Today!

Exclusive Excerpt:

“You have a meeting today with Lucas Black, don’t you?” Kay Robinson, the paralegal in my office, asks. She’s older, in her early sixties. She’s let her hair go naturally gray and wears it in a tight bun at the back of her head. She always has on calf-length suit skirts. Her jackets cover a frilly ruffled shirt beneath. I absolutely love her. She also says things that, nine times out of ten, shock the shit out of me. She has the dirtiest mouth and the most prim-and-proper appearance. I hope to be like her one day. Looking up at her from my coffee, I nod. “Yeah, in an hour. I’m trying to prepare a little. Honestly, I probably have this entire file completely memorized,” I admit with a shrug. She grins. “Honey, there is no way in hell you will everbe prepared to meet Lucas Black.” Curiously, I look up at her, waiting for her to continue. When she does, I’m not prepared for her next sentence, let alone the enigma who is Lucas Black, apparently. “Lucas Black is one of the sexiest, nastiest, downright lickablemen I have ever seen before. He’s tall and dark, with green eyes and scruff on his face that makes you want to rub up on it just to feel it against your thighs. The promise of multiple orgasms that man could give, Lord, I need to stop thinking about him,” she whispers. “Kay,” I gasp. “Thanks, now I’m terrified.” Giving her a shaky smile, I decide that he must be way too old for me anyway. I mean, if Kay thinks he’s hot, he’s got to be closer to her age than my own, right? All I can think about is this man, this nasty lickable man.   She nods. “You fucking should be.” She lifts her chin, turns and walks away.

S. Doyle - Mostly My Boss/Mostly My Girlfriend reviews

Today we have 2 books coming atcha from S. Doyle!  First up, Mostly My Boss ...

Whew! Holy sexual tension, Batman! I really enjoyed this very unique read. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of this book. This wasn’t a lighthearted read. Not saying it’s hard to read either, but there was so much more to it than just what’s on the surface. I liked how the reader starts things in present time but then the narrative takes us back in time to how Ethan and Julia’s relationship began. I liked the back and forth and how strong these characters’ emotions were. I was completely captivated and didn’t want to put this book down! I enjoyed the way these two clicked and seemed to quickly be there for each other and even though the chemistry between them was strong, they held strong. (Or did they?!) Neither Ethan or Julia had an easy upbringing and they struggled with their families for completely different reasons. But the always had each other. I’m definitely looking forward to Mostly My Girlfriend to find out where they go from here... I highly recommend this book!  


Mostly My Boss by [Doyle, S.]



A friends to lover, boss/secretary story...from the author of The Bride

Ethan

I did it. I broke us. That night…changed our relationship. I wasn’t her friend anymore. I wasn’t her boss anymore. I didn’t know what we were to each other. 
Twelve years ago, I met Julia at Harvard. I was a cocky genius. A visionary, with plans to change the world. 
And she believed me. Believed in me. I wouldn’t have survived that first year without her. 
Now everyone calls me the boss. Except Jules. She calls me… mostly her boss. 
I thought we had it all together. But I screwed up and now she thinks she can quit. 
The job. Me. 
I can’t let that happen. So I got her to promise me one hour.


Author Note: This is Book 1 in a 2 book series
