InkSlinger PR Hosted Release Blitz for DEAR JANE by Kendall Ryan !








I broke her heart ten years ago and left town.

She hates me, and rightly so. It doesn’t matter that the rest of the country loves me, that I’m a starting quarterback with a multimillion-dollar contract. Because when I look in the mirror, all I see is a failure who was too young—and too afraid—to fight for what I wanted.

But I’m not that guy anymore, and all I need is one shot to convince her.

***
He has no idea what happened after he left. And now I’m supposed to work alongside him like we don’t have this huge, messy history?

But I’m older now, wiser, and I won’t let anything stand in my way of doing a good job for this league. Not even one overpaid, arrogant player who thinks we’re going to kiss and make up.

News flash, buddy: I am over you.

All My Life by Prescott Lane
Release Date: October 10, 2018



All My Life, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Prescott Lane.
The beginning of any love story starts with the meet.
I’ve known Garrett Hollis since before I can remember, and I’ve loved him just as long. I loved him while he loved someone else. I loved him when he had a baby with her. I loved him when she left him.
The greatest of love stories is that between a dad and his daughter. I should know. I’ve had a front row seat. First steps, first words, all the big moments.
Garrett was just a teenager when Mia was born. I’ve watched him braid his daughter’s hair, hold her hand crossing the street, seen her asleep on his chest. I’m the best friend, the one they can count on for everything from dance lessons to motherly advice, anything they need. I’m their go-to girl.
The best part of any love story is the happily ever after.
But what if the happily ever after doesn’t include you?
All my life, that’s how long I’ve loved him.
Of course, he’s clueless.

Excerpt:

As far as dates go, this one has been good. I like her. She’s attractive, funny, smart, seems to have her head on straight. All the boxes are checked. This should be the point where I kiss her, ask her out again. I should be devising ways to get in this woman’s panties, but instead I’m thinking more about yanking down the tutu of one very sexy Biscuit Girl. I should be thinking about how to get this woman to fall for me, but it’s me that’s fallen. I should have one thing on my mind, and I do — Devlyn.
There’s just one big ass problem. She’s my friend. I can’t go there. There are so many reasons why I can’t go there. The town would have a field day. We’d have no privacy. Everyone would have an opinion. If we broke up, where would I get a decent cup of coffee? How would Mia react to this? Then there’s Scott, who’s actually the least of my concerns. Devlyn seemed pretty sure it was over, and if it’s not, I plan on convincing her.
I don’t want to lose Devlyn.
Staying friends guarantees her in my life. Dating her doesn’t.
Love doesn’t come with a guarantee.
Love is a risk. I used to be a risk taker, but teenage fatherhood buried that part of me. Stability became the name of the game. It had to. I look towards her diner, wondering if she’s back.






Final Score - 5 My Heart is Bursting Stars!

This is my first book by author Prescott Lane and what an introduction!

This book is chalk full of sweet moments - there are flashbacks of the H/h childhood and that of their teen years when he became a teen parent raising his daughter without her mother; there were also flashbacks of the daughter's childhood and how the heroine helped to raise/guide her, all while secretly loving the Hero (the man is completely oblivious to this). Then you have the father/daughter relationship dynamic which is cute and endearing.

One often doesn't find a book about a young, single teenage father - they are so rare - so this one a bit of a challenge to read as I did't know the circumstances that lead to this momentous event. It was written realistically and well - which drew me immediately in.

There were situations that happened that left me seriously frustrated with this book at times, but overall I loved the message of the book. It's a story about finding love, even when you've given up all hope of it becoming a reality. It's also about parental love and making the tough decisions to make sure that your child is taken care of emotionally.

Social Butterfly PR Hosted Cover Reveal for TEQUILA TEQUILA by Emma Hart !

TEQUILATEQUILA-BANNER1.jpg


Tequila + you best friend + your bedroom = um, whoopsie?


Tequila Tequila, an all-new hilarious standalone romantic comedy from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Emma Hart is coming November 13th and we have the brand new cover.


TT-FULL.jpg


Synopsis

Don’t sleep with your best friend.
Take it from me. I did it. And it was awful.
I-wish-the-tequila-made-me-forget kind of bad.
The problem is, Luke has forgotten. He swears that he can’t remember a thing about that night beyond the trays of tequila shots being set on the tables.
Except I can’t forget. I can’t forget how good his hands felt until I fell over and hit my hip on the dresser, and I sure as hell can’t forget the entire two minutes of tap-tap-squirt.
Awkward. Embarrassing. And the new subject of a couple of dirty lucid dreams.
But I have no intention of telling him what we did. Nothing good comes from telling your best friend he’s the worst guy you’ve ever slept with.
Which makes the tequila on my birthday a very, very bad idea…

Candi Kane PR Hosted Blog Tour w/Promo for MEDICINE MAN by Saffron A. Kent !







Medicine Man by Saffron A. Kent
Release Date: September 27th
Genre: Contemporary Romance



Add To Goodreads:














NOW AVAILABLE!
Amazon Universal: https://amzn.to/2I6Ax3A












BLURB


Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns.
It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybe linger on her face a second too long.
Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly leashed emotions. And neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face.
No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood, at all.
Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist.
The medicine man.
WARNING: This book discusses sensitive issues including but not limited to, depression and suicide.












EXCERPT


“Do you have someone special, Dr. Blackwood?”
Someone you kiss? Someone you grab and pull into a dark alley and press against
walls?
I don’t say that but I’m definitely asking that.
It’s like he hears the unspoken questions because the heat of his body seems to have
doubled. Like his blood is rushing in his veins with an uncanny speed.
With flaring nostrils and a hard jaw, he answers, “No.”
“Why not?”
“Because I’m busy.”
I want to smile. Actually, I’ve never wanted to smile this hard. Ever. His answer calms
me but it also makes me restless to move closer to him. I want to trace my palm over the arch
of his chest and see if I got it right in my dreams.
But I don’t do any of those things. I don’t want him to take away this small concession
he’s given me.
Why is he even giving it to me? I’m not complaining. But still.
“Busy with patients?”
“Busy with my job. Yes,” he says, all professional-like.
That’s what he is. Professional and distant. Dedicated to his job and fixing people. If
Mass General let him go, then they are idiots.
I’m an idiot, too, in this moment.
Instead of backing off, I want to do something. Something that might crack his cool
fa├žade. Maybe reaching up and messing up his no-nonsense hair.
What would he do? If I did that? If I grabbed his collar and pushed him against the wall?
And kissed him?
My eyes drop to his lips, his soft, soft lips. There’s a cleft in the middle of his lower lip. I
want to taste that cleft, dig my tongue in it, wet it, suck on it, bite it.
“So you don’t have fun at all?”
“No. I’m not a fun guy.”
I watch his lips form the words, and every syllable that comes out of his mouth makes
my need to shake him, kiss him, mess him up, stronger. Stronger and stronger.
The need is so consuming that I hardly notice when he puts his hand on my palm and
takes it off his body. It’s final and smooth, his action. Effortless. As though my touch barely
registered to him.
“But I think you have a point. It’s after hours and I should go… have fun rather than
spending my time with a patient.” He steps back then. “I’ll see you next week. Same time.”











Final Score - 5 Warrior Woman Stars!


Willow Taylor is a young girl who has lost her desire to fight ... to live. Her endless sea of depression has dragged her down a rabbit hole and refuses to relinquish it's hold on her. It all comes to a head one fateful day and in the aftermath, she is placed in a psychiatric hospital. It is here where she meets new people who eventually become her greatest friendships. It is also where she meets new resident psychiatrist, Simon Blackwood. 

From the moment they meet, they are drawn together, but both are suffering untold demons. Not to mention, he's her doctor and there are some lines that can't be crossed. But in each other they find a puzzle piece of themselves - that make it impossible for them to ever be whole without the other. However, again I reiterate - HE IS HER DOCTOR; SHE IS HIS PATIENT. 

I loved EVERYTHING about this novel. The taboo nature was SO appealing for me, it drew me to want to read this and I can't say I'm sorry. First off, he's her doctor & she's the patient. Second, is when you realize that Simon is in in his mid-30's & while Willow has just turned 18. This forbidden aspect of their relationship made my heart palpitate & choke with fear. There is NO privacy at a psychiatric hospital - anyone at anytime could have found them out! They are in a HOSPITAL for goodness sake!! Hair pulling aside, there were times I wanted them to be found out just to see how Simon would react - he was a tough character to relate to at times. 

I adored all of the side characters in the story - most especially Willow's new friends she made at the hospital. These friendships - something that Willow had never experienced - were invaluable to her growth and rehabilitation. Some of greatest laugh out loud moments in the book were compliments of these ladies and their antics/out looks. I can't even express how much I'm excited that Renn & Vi will be getting their own books. I SERIOUSLY can't wait to read them!

And while the author express that certain liberties were taken with book, I can't help but feel that she brought a more impassioned aspect regarding the subject of depression. Her sensitivity and creativity in weaving together this story has brought a new view of what mental health means. Having suffered from depression in one way or another for years, I was delighted to read how careful attention was put into not only the story but of the subject at hand. 

There are some books that you pick up and absorb while there are others you abandon after just a chapter or two. This is NOT that book! This story will stay with you for days, weeks. I still have yet to get it out of my head. This book came along at the right time and was just what I needed. Saffron A. Kent has done it again and I for one am not shocked or surprised - although that just means she's raised the bar.

Ardent Prose PR Hosted Release Blitz for SAY YOU WANT IT by Jenika Snow !






























Piper

It was supposed to be a summer job, something to help me transition from graduating high school to starting college. But to me, this wasn’t just some office cleaning position.
I’d be working for Zane, the one man I’d loved for longer than I even wanted to admit.
The one person who could make me weak in the knees with just a glance.
My father’s friend who was far too old for me, but sexier than sin.

Zane

I hired Piper to keep her close, to help appease my need for her. But I played it off like I was helping her earn some money before starting college.
I was too old for her.
She was too innocent for me.
She was my friend’s daughter.
Off limits.
But I’d wanted her since she turned legal last summer. I saw the way she watched me, the way she bit her lip, the fact that her pulse jumped at the base of her throat when I was near. Did she know how obsessed I was with her, how I’d go to any means to keep other men away from her?
I could see how much she wanted me and that was dangerous.
Because her need for me made me territorial, desperate.
Everything I was, everything I had, belonged to Piper.
All she had to do was ask and it was hers.


Warning: If you like possessive, territorial, and obsessed men in your short stories, this insta-love one is just for you. With an older celibate hero, an innocent virgin heroine, and all the gooey juiciness you love in romance, make sure you have something cold to drink as you read this one.




As he stared at me, I wondered what could’ve been so important that he had to stop the car. But as I looked into his face, I could see what he was about to say was serious. That had me nervous. Was everything okay?
Was this about my father?
Was he about to tell me that he knew how I felt, could sense it, feel it?
Or maybe he was about to tell me how things couldn’t happen between us.
Every “what if” passed through my head and my entire body tightened. I tried to act calm, appear like I had my shit together. The truth was I didn’t. So, all I did was brace myself for the impact.
“I didn’t know how to say this, how to go about even bringing this up,” he finally said, his voice deep with emotion.
He was looking past me as he spoke, as if maybe he couldn’t look me in the eye when he said the words. With every passing second I grew even more convinced he was about to draw the line between us.
“But I can’t stand idly back anymore, Piper. I can’t keep how I feel inside a minute longer. Having you so close, working right beside me, knowing that all I have to do is reach out and touch you, pull you in close, has my self-control on a tightrope.” He looked at me then. “It’s snapped, Piper, and if I don’t tell you how I feel, what I want, I’m going to lose my fucking mind.”
I felt my eyes widen, knew they were probably massive saucers on my face. What Zane had just said was certainly not what I expected to hear. I’d assumed he’d keep us at a distance, break my heart even if he didn’t realize.
But no, what he just told me was my fantasy come to life. The look he gave me, the way I felt when he touched me … all of that had meant more than what was in my head.
It was real.
“Zane…” That was the only word that come out of my mouth that moment. I was so shocked, not even able to think clearly.
“Let me finish, and then you can turn me down.”
My heart stuttered at that confession. Me, turn him down? Was he insane?
“I’ve wanted you since you were eighteen, Piper. It’s wrong, I know. Not just because you’re so much younger than I am, but because you’re Liam’s daughter. This could cause issues between him and me, but I can’t stop myself from wanting you. I can’t hold back my emotions anymore.”
He lifted his hand and rubbed his eyes, as if the conversation drained him. I knew exactly how he felt. My emotions were exhausting, hiding them, trying to fight them. It was to the point where I didn’t even try anymore.
“Maybe if it was just a passing desire, I could control how I felt for you.” He shook his head slowly as he stared into my eyes. “But this isn’t a passing emotion. I love you, Piper. I’m in love with you, and there’s nothing and no one that can—will—ever change that fact.”
We were silent, the air so thick it was like swimming through pudding. I couldn’t breathe, could barely even look at him for how intense this whole situation was.
Zane loved me.
He. Loved. Me.

Review: Say You Want it

Say You Want it Say You Want it by Jenika Snow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Final Score - 4 Stars!

Say You Want It is another fast pace love story - no long drawn out will they/won't they. The alpha - Zane - knows what he wants and isn't afraid of going after his lady. Piper is only hesitant in that he's older, her father's best friend, and is unclear if he feels the same. Once all cards are on the table, this duo quickly move from soloists to forbidden partners.

This story is very easy to read. And while it may seem taboo for some, it checked all my boxes in regards to enjoyment. This love story is as sweet as it is erotic, however I would have really loved if there was a bit more to the storyline. I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't more sustenance.

Review: Fight or Flight

Fight or Flight Fight or Flight by Samantha Young
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Final Score - 4.5 Stars!

The book starts off with an assumption from an otherwise ass (and I say that because that's how he comes across) of a man.  Caleb is judgmental, blunt and insensitive - otherwise an ass.  That's not to say that Ava is/was always in the right - she did poke the bear so to speak.  However, first impressions are a big deal to me and well, I identified with Ava more so than Caleb.  My feelings for Caleb were a slow burn - he didn't completely win me over enough, but the overall ending was plausible for me and enjoyable to read.

What can I say about Samantha Young's books that hasn't already been said by me and countless others?  Everyone I've talked to has not only read her On Dublin Series (and LOVED it as much as I do).  Her style of writing about funny, witty, and sarcastic characters - you can't help but be blown away with each and every new book she releases.  They're just that good!  And with FIGHT OR FLIGHT, she's added an element of heartbreak I'm sure every woman - especially nowadays - can relate to.  The story was engaging - I could not put it down - and chemistry between Caleb and Ava was strong.  I will be buying the paperback/hardcover to add to my ever growing collection of Samantha Young books.

I definitely recommend this one.
