InkSlinger PR Hosted Cover Reveal for DOWN TOO DEEP by J. Daniels !




Following the sudden death of his wife, Nathan Bell has 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 Nate’s adorable two-year-old, and wants to help Nathan however she can. Soon, attachments are made, forcing Jenna and her kids into new territory. 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 someone is losing them all.

Review: Once Upon A [Fallen] Time

Once Upon A [Fallen] Time Once Upon A [Fallen] Time by Samreen Ahsan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Final Score - 5 Oh Em Gee, This is NOT Happening! Stars!!!

Let's recap ... Myra isn't your average 22-year-old - she's a bit obsessed with everything medieval (princess, kings, castles, etc.). Her family, trying to steer Myra away from this obsession, arranges for her to meet Steve so a marriage can take place between them. They hit it off, but also broker a deal. He'll use her as his main character in his video game to be based on Hue Castle - which happens to be the source of Myra's long standing obsession. But along with her obsession with the castle is her connection to Edward, the last Hue heir.

Once again, Ms. Ahsan has crafted a spell-binding story that I had a hard time putting down, as I need answers! Now that Myra has been brought through the mirror's portal to Edward's time of 1415, what if anything can she change? And what will the repercussions be in her time(2015)? I had a hard time putting this one down and was more than ready to read it when the author reached out to me to notify me that she had finished the story. I was eagerly ready for this and was not once disappointed during the read. I still however have burning questions and I need to know all and everything there is to know - ever more so now than before - about the circumstances of Myra's existence and just how it ties to Hue Castle. Is she a descendant? Or is there something more to her than meets the eye?

Edward grew on me more in this book - I got to see thing from his prospective more and I have to say I feel for him so much more. His father ... well, no one should have a father like him. King Stefan is the worst of the worst a parent can ever be. The fact the Myra now knows his end is satisfying but the fact that it's tied to her leave me in agony. They have to find a way around that!

I wish I could say that Steven grew on me, as he presented a challenge to me as a character in the last book, but my analysis of him is spot on and I still don't trust him. There's just something about him that rubs me wrong. He's intentions go beyond self fulfilling desires for his game to succeed. Maybe it's that fact that his name is Steven ... and I'm not like King Stefan. I'm having a hard time separating the two of them. They both give me the run for the hill vibes.

This book again ended with a cliffhanger and what an emotional one at that - you cannot leave me hanging!!! OMG ... I need to know that she's alright. I need to know that Edward found out the truth about what King Stefan has done. I cannot wait for the next book cause I need like yesterday!

InkSlinger PR Hosted Cover Reveal for JUNK MAIL by Kendall Ryan !




It all started with a sexy selfie.

Texted to the wrong number.

Oops.

Not my finest moment—but I have nothing to be ashamed of.

She thought I was no better, and I quote, than the knuckle-dragging douche-bags she was never dating again.

It was a stupid dare from a girl I’d met online, but since she’d given me a fake number, I didn’t feel bad that my interests were suddenly focused elsewhere—on the fiery and sharp-tongued, Peyton that I found myself sparring with over text for the rest of the evening.

The following day, my case of mistaken identity came back to bite me in the banana.

When I strolled into the office, I was introduced to Peyton as the new client I needed to win over. The Peyton, in case you're not tracking.

And let’s just say she had my full attention.

Brains? Check.

Beauty? Oh yeah.

And the best part? She hated me on sight.

Dear God, do I love a challenge.

Let the games begin.

IndigeSage PR Hosted Blog Tour w/Review for ENZO by K. Webster !

Enzo

by K Webster
Publication Date: January 28, 2019
Genres: Taboo Treat



Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU


Jenna’s grown up in the system.
Forced to be tough, wary, and hard.

She’s only been able to count on herself.
Until Enzo.
He’s much older and responsible for looking after her.
What should be a job to him, evolves into much more.

Late night phone calls.
Lingering touches.
A forbidden fire that burns brighter each day.

Everything about him exudes strength.
His will to protect her is more than she could ever ask for.
Sadly, though, even heroes have their limitations.

But she doesn’t need a hero.
She just needs him.










Final Score - 4.5 Stars!

Would you trust an adult after every other has let you down your entire life?  Especially when this one has the power to control your life?

Jenna is unhappy, bouncing from bad home to worse home.   Jenna is a foster child, but she won't let it define her.  Forming her own family with another abandoned child, she decides that when she ages out, she's not leaving alone.

Enter Enzo, he's her new caseworker and he goes above and beyond for his charges - especially Jenna. He knows he shouldn't feel the way he does about her, but she's special. He sees in her what he himself was at one time - a lonely foster child looking for a family of their own.

This story was chalk full of romance, but had a healthy dose of compassion as well.  Jenna and Enzo's journey at times was rough, and they had a lot of hardships to work through, but the author definitely gave them their well deserved happy ending.

Review: Sexy Little Sinner

Sexy Little Sinner Sexy Little Sinner by J. Kenner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Final Score - 4 Stars

I am a great fan of age-gap romances and if written well, well then - then it's a no brainier. However this one feels a bit short of epic greatness for me, especially with Conner's on going attitude about the hows/whys of "his" feelings.  I felt like it overshadowed everything and I just couldn't get on board with him and Kerrie ending up together.

Now, don't get me wrong - this couple has amazing chemistry as they are The Couple.  They simply DO belong together.  It's just that, overall, Conner and his damn feelings/attitude ruin that and just put me off ever wanting them to have that HEA that everyone else in this series has had thus far.  He's know it all, I'm making the right choice for us attitude - grated on my last nerve!  Even his own brother couldn't sit by and let him make such an idiotic decision.

I love J. Kenner and her writing but this one was just bleh/alright for me. I felt no connection to either character - emotional or otherwise.  Let's hope that I feel that spark come back to life with her next book in the series.

Social Butterfly PR Hosted Blog Tour w/Review for WORK IN PROGRESS by Staci Hart !

WIP - BT banner.jpg


Her fake husband is a Work In Progress…





Work in Progress, an all-new romantic comedy from Staci Hart, is available now!



wip-cover-sm.jpg




I never thought my first kiss would be on my wedding day.


But here I stand, clutching a bouquet of pale pink roses behind the doors of a Las Vegas chapel, and at the end of the aisle is the
absolute last man I imagined would be waiting for me.


Thomas Bane.

Bestselling author. Notorious bad boy. Savagely handsome, dark as sin, chiseled as stone. And somehow, my soon-to-be husband.


Marry him, and I’ll land my dream job. Save him, and I’ll walk away with everything I’ve ever wanted. All I have to do is remember
it’s all for show. None of it is real, no matter how real it feels.


But first, I have to survive the kiss.

And with lips like his, my heart doesn’t stand a chance.

Excerpt:




The hall bathroom door opened, consequently stopping the earth’s orbit and flinging me into space for lack of gravity.


Thomas Bane stepped out of the doorway in slow motion, propelled by a cloud of steam that licked at his glistening body like it
wanted to taste him. His hair was black, wet, curling and dripping in rivulets down the planes and valleys of his expansive chest
and abs and narrow hips. He had that thing, the trough of muscle bracketing his hips that caught sluicing water and carried it in
an angle that would eventually reach that unknown terrain beneath his towel. I saw the ghost of that terrain, the long, cylindrical
bulge that was substantial enough to clearly state its presence, even through the thick towel.


He smirked, dragging his hand through his wet hair. I salivated, watching droplets of water roll down his forearm and collect on the
tip of his erotic elbow.


“You’re up,” he said.


I blinked, not knowing when I’d set my coffee down or how many minutes—hours? years?—had passed in the time I spent ogling his
body.


He sauntered into the room like he wasn’t basically naked. I tried unsuccessfully not to stare at his knees, the place where his ropy thigh
connected, the angular muscles of his calves, the curve of his ankle, the broad pad of his foot.


He was perfectly proportioned. Michelangelo would have carved him twenty feet tall, and women would have worshipped at his perfect feet.


Gus bounced when he saw Tommy, his toys forgotten. And when Gus took off running, Tommy stopped, eyes widening and hands splayed in
front of him.


“Gus, no,” he commanded.


To no one’s surprise, Gus did not listen. He barked once, snagged the hem of Tommy’s towel, and whipped it off him in a single tug that exposed
every inch of skin on Thomas Bane’s ridiculous body.


Thank God my coffee was already on the counter. I’d have gotten third-degree burns.


For a split second, Tommy was frozen there in all his natural glory, poised to run after his dog, his face drawn and eyes locked on the sweet, disobedient
dog. He wasn’t paying any attention to me.


I, however, gave him my full and undivided consideration.


His thighs were a mass of muscle so hard and defined, the tops were planes that came to a notch at his knee and a point where it met his hip. My eyes
caught that trough that had before disappeared and followed it where it pointed—straight to the thatch of dark hair and the member nestled there.


The very thick, very long, mostly limp member.


If I stared at it a second longer, I was going to faint—my vision was already dim, my pulse pumping so hard, I could feel it in my neck, at the back of which
a cold sweat had broken.


But he shifted to run after Gus, who was galloping away, trailing the towel behind him.


“Dammit, Gus! Gimme that!”


Then it was the back of him I saw, his hair, the streaming water rolling down all the curves of his shoulders, his back, the valley of his spine, and down to
the most perfect ass I’d ever seen in real life.


Well, the only ass I’d ever seen in real life that wasn’t my own, and even that I couldn’t get a good look at without a mirror.


Seriously, that ass. That perfectly sculpted ass, round and tight and curved in the sides, shifting from one side to the other as he ran after the damn dog.
My gaze caught a tattoo on one ass cheek, and I squinted at it, trying to make it out.


Tommy bent to snag the end of the towel—I caught sight of his sack and almost dissolved through the floor in an acidic puddle of embarrassment—but
when he pulled, Gus spun around, ass in the air and tail wagging as he growled, pulling back.


A string of obscenities left Tommy’s mouth, but I was still gaping and staring at his ass. I realized that I was laughing. It sounded like someone else in a
different room.


I wondered absently if this was how it felt to have a stroke.







Final Score - 5 Stars!

How has it happened that I've started with the third book in this series?! GAH! What an introduction though. I've definitely got to get caught up with the first two books now for sure.

This book has the makings of rom-com masterpiece: a fake marriage, a never been kissed virgin, a bad boy with a bad rep, an image make over, and sizzling chemistry. Mixed together and you have a gem of a story that only Staci Hart can bake and serve up on a silver platter. I ate up word, every emotion and just wanted more! 

This book has so many amazing layers and the characters just add to the dynamic of the story - you don't want to miss out on this one. Work in Progress is only the book to read but it must be owned.




About the Author


Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress.
Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly
not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey.


From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver.
They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
