RELEASE WEEK REVIEW – Anarchy Chained by J.A. Huss

Title – Anarchy Chained – Alpha Thomas
Author – J.A. Huss
Publication Date – June 12, 2017
Series – SuperAlpha Series #3

Everyone wants revenge.
That’s what I tell my new would-be partner in crime, Sadie Scott.
“You’re crazy,” she says. “Certifiably insane.”
Just a little. But isn’t everyone a little crazy?
“And I’m gonna get the hell away from you as fast as I can.”
She’s so cute when she’s defiant.
“As soon as I get my memory back and figure out who I am.”
Yeah. That little problem is definitely working in my favor.
“So stay away from me, Thomas Brooks. Or I will…”
She’ll what? We’re perfect for each other and she knows it. But if she needs a little more convincing… Well, there’s a friend of mine she needs to meet.
He’s very convincing.
Yes, Sadie Scott, you’re mine now. We were made to be together.
Body, mind, and soul.
We were made to be together.
Just the three of us.
Together. Forever.

When J.A Huss said that she was writing a series about super villains, I knew that it would be addictive and action packed. What I didn’t expect was to fall as madly in love with the characters and the storyline as I did. Anarchy Chained is the third book in the SuperAlpha series and I can only think of one word to describe it – explosive. Thomas’ story was everything I craved, yet nothing that I knew I needed. I savored each and every word, and while the ending was incredible, I’m already left yearning for more.

“I’m not sane. I will never be sane again. Like it or not, I am chained to the anarchy in my head.”

There were surprises around every turn when it came to the characters in this book. While the first two in the series seemed to intertwine more, Thomas’ book really could have standed on its own in some regards; it truly was about him and Sadie. You’ll want to experience everything this couple has to offer for yourself, but I will say that they’ll leave you guessing and turning the pages in anticipation of what is to come. Thomas is so much more than we have come to realize, while Sadie is a pile of mystery wrapped up in a pretty bow. There are quite complex layers to each of them, and you won’t want to stop reading until you’ve gotten to the gift in the center of it all.

“But if you stick it out with me we can rip the world apart and put it back together. Make it new, Sadie. Make it ours.”

The entire plot of the SuperAlpha series was unique and refreshing, and to be honest, not one I thought I would ever read. However, given how much I have admired the author and always related to her heroines, I knew I’d take the chance and I’m certainly glad that I did. Anarchy Chained contained action, romance, intrigue, and some serious twists that will give readers whiplash. I loved every juicy piece of it and only wish that I could experience it again for the first time. If you’re a reader that’s ready to push his/her buttons and go outside the box, you definitely don’t want to miss this series. It has a little bit of something for everyone, and the writing continues to get better and better. I’m already on pins and needles for the spinoffs that will be coming, and I’m pretty sure every reader who dives in will be, too!

RELEASE DAY BLITZ – Vanishing Act by A.M. Madden

Title: Vanishing Act
Author: A.M. Madden
Release Date: June 20, 2017

After personal heartbreak and professional setbacks, Landon Price is running on empty. If he doesn’t take a break from the public eye soon, he’ll risk becoming another cautionary tale in a town that’s full of them. So in between film projects, Landon asks his agent to clear his schedule and then he simply . . . vanishes. Renting a discreet home on a remote Hawaiian beach for the summer, Landon begins to recharge. And in the process of finding himself, he meets a beautiful, feisty local who challenges everything he thinks he knows.

Zara Jobert has no interest in being a conquest for a cocky playboy from the mainland—even one with undeniable charisma and movie-star good looks. So she’s pleasantly surprised when the handsome newcomer’s persistent advances mellow into cozy banter and a sneakily seductive intimacy. When Landon reveals his true identity, Zara’s hurt that he lied, but she doesn’t care that he’s famous. Unfortunately, not everyone feels the same way. And falling for Landon might come with a heartbreaking choice—between Zara’s old life, and a new love.

A.M. Madden delivers a sweet summer romance with Landon and Zara’s story in Vanishing Act. Set in Hawaii, this novel effortlessly transported me to the small island that Zara called home and had me falling in love with the very swoon-worthy Landon in no time at all. Vanishing Act overflowed with hilarious banter, adorable flirtations and deliciously sexy moments, delivering an interesting twist on the Hollywood love story. Landon and Zara’s chemistry was obvious from the start and I absolutely adored the electric push and pull between them. This couple felt fated in a way that was as beautiful as it was amusing and I found myself smitten by their developing relationship. I especially enjoyed uncovering the deeper connection that seemed to pull at this duo, discovering the ways in which they both complimented and challenged one another. Landon and Zara made for a unique pair and I definitely became invested in their happily ever after.

Landon stole my heart right from the start and I loved unraveling the man behind the award-winning actor. Everything about this character intrigued me and I kept reading in hopes of uncovering more about his history and personal motives. A.M. Madden did a great job developing this character – giving him a back story and personality that made my heart totally melt and left me rooting for him even when things got complicated. Zara was a bit of a puzzle to me at first and I had trouble deciding how I felt about her for a while. Her initial behavior was a little erratic and somewhat immature, leaving me to question what kind of heroine she would become. As the story progressed however, A.M. Madden exposed the pains of Zara’s past and made her easier to relate to. I quickly found common ground with this character and began to understand and appreciate her evolution over the course of the story.

Despite the many challenges A.M. Madden has set out for this couple, Vanishing Act is relatively low on drama. Landon and Zara’s journey isn’t action-packed or fueled by explosive emotions. Their relationship seems to develop more slowly, a smolder that eventually burns bright and hot. The nature of the storyline meant that the pacing was languid and there were definitely times where I wanted a bit more intrigue to move the book forward. However, the leisurely pace also gave Vanishing Act a vacation feel and I appreciated the relaxed tone the author set. Filled with colorful secondary characters, Zara and Landon’s story was never dull and I loved getting to know the vibrant personalities that completed their respective lives. A.M. Madden’s writing continues to sparkle, bringing this novel to life with her brilliant imagery, genuine emotion and unforgettable characters. Vanishing Act is another entertaining and touching read from this incredible author and the perfect summer read!

RELEASE DAY BLITZ & GIVEAWAY – Hyde’s Absolution by Nina Levine

Title: Hyde’s Absolution
Author: Nina Levine
Series: Sydney Storm MC #4
Release Date: June 20, 2017

The Sydney Storm MC are back and war is coming.

Monroe Lee is a handful.
She fights me, challenges me and tries to resist me.

Where I’m jagged, she’s smooth.
Where I’m dark, she’s pure.
Where I’m broken, she’s whole.

I am not a good man.
I’ve hurt everyone I’ve ever loved.
I should walk away before I ruin her too.

But fuck, we are fire together.
And I’ve been out in the cold too long.

At a time when everything is falling down around me, she might just be my saviour.

Nina Levine serves up another fiercely addictive MC romance with Hyde’s Absolution, the newest addition to the Sydney Storm MC series. After what feels like one seriously long wait to hear this mysterious man’s story, this novel did not disappoint. Every bit as intense, sexy and full of feels as I’d imagined, Hyde and Monroe’s journey was utterly captivating. I devoured this book, desperate for more of the Storm MC family I’ve come to love and anxious to unravel Hyde for myself. Hyde and Monroe were absolutely electric, their chemistry off the charts and their emotional connection incredibly heartfelt. Nina Levine not only knows how to write swoon-worthy biker BBFs, but she definitely excels at creating the kind of feisty, strong heroines perfect for her possessive alpha males. Nina’s writing is exquisite, effortlessly demonstrating her growth as an author and making this book one of her most memorable works yet.

“Even though she lived and breathed in my soul, I wasn’t in hers. She didn’t know me, and she had no reason to trust me.”

Hyde was so much more than I ever imagined he’d be. As his past came crashing back into his present, we got to experience an entirely new side to the character. The raw emotion that came with those revelations quickly pulled me under Hyde’s spell and kept me mesmerized for the duration of his journey. I loved how Nina Levine juxtaposed the ferocious and oftentimes vicious side of Hyde with the vulnerable and heartbroken man who was desperate to reclaim and defend his family. Monroe’s complete acceptance of Hyde’s flaws, vices and scars was nothing short of breathtaking and allowed the reader to get an intimate look into this seriously complicated hero. By the time all was said and done I’d definitely fallen head over heels for Hyde. I loved his deliciously dirty and unapologetically alpha side as much as I did his caring and tender one. Nina Levine has truly outdone herself with this badass biker.

“Why God? Why is the only man I want to sleep with a moody asshole?”

Monroe was a woman after my own heart – intelligent, independent and unwilling to settle for anything less than what she deserved. I adored her strength and the fearlessness with which she took on Hyde and his many moods. I enjoyed seeing Monroe with her friends and family. They gave me a glimpse of her insecurities and fears that helped me connect to the otherwise seemingly confident heroine in unexpected ways. Nina Levine certainly knew what she was doing bringing Monroe and Hyde together because the push and pull between them was hot, hilarious and totally unique. I loved their witty banter and the scorching interludes they shared. This couple undeniably sizzled in a way that kept me furiously flipping the pages. I have no doubt that Monroe was the perfect addition to the MC women and I look forward to seeing her really find her place amongst the Storm family in the future.

“At the end, we’d both been like casualties of war who stared at each other through vacant eyes, hurling words intended to hurt the other because that felt like the only way to allow the pain out.”

While Hyde and Monroe’s story absolutely enthralled, it was perhaps the MC storyline that kept me so riveted to this novel. Nina Levine picks the club business right back up and continues it in a way that had me on the edge of my seat, desperate to figure out how it would all shake out. I loved seeing more of Kick, Nitro, Devil and King, as well as the women who drive them crazy. Hyde’s Absolution held the same feeling of family I’ve come to love so much from this series and it took no time at all for me to fall right back into Nina Levine’s fictional world. In true Nina Levine fashion, she left my head reeling and my heart raging for the next book in the series but Hyde and Monroe’s journey was as sexy and satisfying as I could have wished for. Overflowing with vibrant characters, brilliant imagery, genuine emotion and pulse-pounding action, Hyde’s Absolution is Nina Levine at her very best!



I tore my attention from Hyde and gave it back to Tatum when she said, “I’ll call you tomorrow.”

Hyde’s presence had pretty much wiped all coherent thought from my mind, so I simply nodded and murmured, “Okay.”

As she and Nitro walked away from us, Hyde moved closer. His scent almost hypnotised me, if that was even possible. Looking down at me, he said, “What are you drinking?” The husky tone of his voice was like the final nail in my coffin. He could lead me down the path to sin with that voice.

“A Cosmo please.”

He turned to the waiting bartender and ordered drinks before shifting his gaze back to me. His body was so damn close it almost pressed against mine. His eyes dropped to my chest. “You weren’t made to be subtle, were you, sugar?”

“Can’t say that word’s in my vocabulary, no.” The way he was devouring my body told me I’d made the best decision when I bought the black dress I wore tonight. Knee length with a plunging neckline and accentuated with a belt around my waist, it clung to every curve I had. My girls were up and proudly out, just the way I liked them. I mean, if you had it, flaunt it, right? And I’d had the red in my hair touched up that afternoon. It hung in lazy vivid red curls to just below my breasts. I wasn’t sure which part of me he thought wasn’t subtle, but I guessed it had something to do with my dress by the way he seemed unable to draw his gaze from my body.

Finally he found his way back up to my face. The heat flashing in his eyes shot a round of lust through my veins. Good God, this man, though. I wondered if he had any idea of the storm he caused within me. “Don’t ever add it.” If what he said didn’t make my legs sway a little, the forceful, gravelly way he said it did.

The bartender placed our drinks on the counter, distracting us from each other. Hyde dropped some cash on the bar, took a mouthful of his whisky and looked back at me while I got down as much of my drink as I could in one mouthful. God knew, I needed it. I could stand my ground with any man, but Hyde had a way of catching me off guard.

“You calm down after that thing about owing me money this morning?” And there he went, flipping my feelings about him on their head.

I fixed him with a look that let him know I wasn’t impressed. “I didn’t have anything to calm down from.”

“You seemed all worked up about it.”

I threw some more of my cocktail down my throat. “I wasn’t.” But I was getting there now, that was for sure.

He drank some more whisky, keeping his eyes steady on mine. “Okay.”

Okay? Oh no he didn’t. He didn’t get to end a conversation with that bullshit. “Okay? Seriously, you’re going to end with that?”

“It seemed pointless to argue.”

I finished my drink and placed the empty glass down with some force. Sliding off my stool, I said, “We weren’t arguing. I was simply telling you like it was.”

“Yeah, I’ve picked that up about you.”

My eyes practically popped out of their sockets. “Picked up what about me?”

“That you like to tell men like it is.”

“I do not! You just have this way of pushing my buttons. I feel like it’s you, not me.”

His lips twitched. “Sugar, if I knew which buttons I was pushing, I’d push them some more. I never said I didn’t like the way you told me how it was.”

I snatched my bag off the bar. I needed a moment to get my thoughts under control. In the space of seconds I’d switched from wanting him to wanting to smack him to wanting him again. My mind needed a break from the whiplash. I took a step away from the bar and said, “I’ll have another Cosmo.”

Without waiting for his response, I headed in the direction of the ladies room. I’d almost made it there when a hand slid around my waist and I was pushed up against the wall in the dark hallway. A hard body pushed against mine as the hand around my waist slid down to settle on my ass and warm breath whispered across my cheek. “My cock likes that attitude of yours. Surprised the fuck outta me, but I can’t deny I want more of it.”

The proof of his statement ground against me, sparking need all over me. Every inch of my skin blazed with desire. I gripped his shirt with both hands and found his eyes. “You and I weren’t made for each other, Hyde.”

“I’m not saying we were.”

My body went to war with my mind. It fought me kicking and screaming, desperate for what he was offering, but I didn’t want to surrender. “So what’s the point of starting something?”

He pushed his cock harder against me. “I came here against better judgement tonight. Nitro told me you’d be here and I came because I couldn’t, for the fucking life of me, get you out of my head. I want my hands on those curves of yours and my dick as far inside you as you can take it.”

BLOG TOUR – Dangerous Rush by S.C. Stephens

Title – Dangerous Rush
Author – S.C. Stephens
Publication Date – June 13, 2017
Series – Rush #2

Feeling the rush comes with a price…

Mackenzie Cox has lost everything—except Hayden Hayes. With Kenzie’s racing career over, and her family no longer speaking to her, Hayden has been her rock, as she tries to pick up the pieces of what was once her life.

But when Hayden’s racing team hires his beautiful ex-girlfriend, Felicia, to be their new hotshot rider, Kenzie and Hayden’s seemingly solid relationship begins to crack. Kenzie can only watch from the sidelines, as Felicia lives the life she was forced to leave behind, and as tension begins to build between Hayden and Kenzie, she wonders if Hayden isn’t the man she once knew.

I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for more of Kenzie and Hayden and holy cow, did S.C. Stephens deliver. While the first book in the Rush series was driven forward through action and fast-paced romance, Dangerous Rush reminded me a lot more of the classic Stephens I have encountered. The conclusion to their story was filled with angst and emotional components to keep readers turning page after page – reminiscent of her Thoughtless series. I never knew what to expect, but I can definitely say Dangerous Rush was full throttle.

“You act like your life is carved in stone, unchangeable, but it’s not, Hayden. You can change anything about yourself that you want. Anything.”

I will say that it seemed that life was against the couple in this book; Everything that fate could throw at them happened, but never in an exaggerated manner. Though at times it could feel like a lot, everything still felt natural to the storyline, which I appreciated. I also loved how complex the characters grew to be in Dangerous Rush. Even though they wanted nothing more than to race, the crux of the story became about so much more. They were truly tested to figure out their priorities and what mattered most to each of them. It was a journey of emotions that I could not get enough of and wished it could continue forever.

“We were on paths neither one of us could change, and unfortunately, they were heading in opposite directions.”

The transformations from the first book, especially in those initial moments, to the ending of this one, was mind boggling. Both Hayden and Kenzie were forced to confront emotions, people, and inner demons which made for quite a salivating read. They grew before my very eyes and witnessing it certainly felt special. Kenzie went from high to low and how she dealt with it resonated so strongly with me. She was a girl after my own heart and that made me love her even more. I’m not going to lie, I went through very large gaps of time where I was so frustrated with Hayden that I was ready to put my boot upside his head. What’s that saying? The best laid plans? Expect some definite surprises with that one 😉

“There was just something about Kenzie on a bike that got all my juices flowing—I wanted to hold her, kiss her, race her, and undress her, all at the same time.”

Overall, I loved the new scenery combined with the classic, unforgettable Stephens. Her writing in Dangerous Rush felt so much more angsty and left me craving nothing but more. I don’t know if there will be more spinoffs in the series, but I know for certain that if she writes them, I’ll be waiting for that green light to speed through for my own Dangerous Rush!

BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY – Salvaged by Jay Crownover

Title: Salvaged
Author: Jay Crownover
Series: Saints of Denver #4
Release Date: June 20, 2017

Hudson Wheeler is a nice guy. Everyone knows it, including his fiancée who left him with a canceled wedding and a baby on the way. He’s tired of finishing last and is ready to start living in the moment with nights soaked in whiskey, fast cars, and even faster girls. He’s set to start living on the edge, but when he meets Poppy Cruz, her sad eyes in the most gorgeous face he’s ever seen hook him in right away. Wheeler can see Poppy’s pain and all he wants to do is take care of her and make her smile, whatever it takes.

Poppy can’t remember a time when she didn’t see strangers as the enemy. After a lifetime of being hurt from the men who swore to protect her, Poppy’s determined to keep herself safe by keeping everyone else at arm’s length. Wheeler’s sexy grin and rough hands from hours restoring classic cars shouldn’t captivate her, but every time she’s with him, she can’t help being pulled closer to him. Though she’s terrified to trust again, Poppy soon realizes it might hurt even more to shut Wheeler out—and the intense feelings pulsing through her are making it near impossible to resist him.

The only thing Poppy is sure of is that her heart is in need of some serious repair, and the more time she spends with Wheeler, the more she’s convinced he’s the only man with the tools to fix it.

Jay Crownover says goodbye to the Saints of Denver series with Salvaged, Poppy and Wheeler’s breathtaking journey. This novel was bittersweet in so many ways as Jay’s Marked Men universe came full circle in what can only be described as a brilliant celebration of life and love. Poppy and Wheeler’s story was an exercise in resilience and a true testament to the power of family. My heart was so full by the time I’d turned the final page that I couldn’t help but want to go back to the beginning and start reading all over again. Complete with appearances from all of my favorite Marked Men and Saints of Denver couples, this unforgettable story felt like coming home.

“All those things that you think make this something that is impossible to start, I saw them long before you saw me and I still couldn’t look away.”

After meeting Poppy and Wheeler in Riveted, I was thoroughly intrigued. There was something unexpected and utterly undeniable brewing between this couple from the moment they met and I just knew that their connection would prove to be significant. Jay Crownover definitely didn’t disappoint, completely blowing me away with Poppy and Wheeler’s story. With Salvaged, Jay delivered something fierce, surprising and entirely heartfelt and I couldn’t help but lose myself in every passionate encounter, honest exchange and adorable moment of sweetness that colored the pages of this novel.

“I’d always wanted something solid, something sure and steady… who knew my stability would come in the form of a girl that seemed so fragile and breakable?”

Poppy was every bit the heroine I’d hoped she’d be and then some. Beautiful, kind and unbelievably sweet, Poppy radiated strength and goodness in a way that drew me in and demanded I invest myself in her happily ever after. My heart ached for everything she had endured and yet I felt such comfort and courage in watching her heal. Poppy’s growth over the course of the novel was awe-inspiring and I loved how Jay Crownover transformed this character in a way that was careful to maintain the authenticity of Poppy’s emotions and the integrity of her experiences.

“I gotta tell ya, Hudson, a bad day with you is still better than the best day without you.”

Wheeler took me by surprise. He was so unlike Jay Crownover’s past leading men that I wasn’t sure what to expect from him. Needless to say, it didn’t take long for Wheeler to steal my heart and I quickly found myself madly in love with his patience, loyalty and deep devotion to Poppy. I adored the personal journey Jay Crownover had in store for our hero and enjoyed seeing Wheeler broken down and exposed as he learned to navigate his new reality and began to evolve in his own, equally captivating way.

“I wasn’t living my life where the scars and wounds were – no, I was living it where the love and light found me every single day.”

Salvaged absolutely sparkled, serving up all of the heartache, angst and delightfully sexy moments I’ve come to love from Jay Crownover and so much more. This book was the perfect end to what feels like an era of inimitable, inked book boyfriends and I find myself feeling both wholly satisfied and inexplicably sad. The writing was exquisite, the emotions genuine, and the storyline totally enthralling. I fell hard and fast for Poppy and Wheeler, Jay’s most undeniably worthy couple yet. These characters were simply good down to their souls and it made their triumphant happily ever after that much sweeter. Salvaged is hopeful, stunning and full of feels – an absolute must read from Jay Crownover!


I put my hands to my cheeks and held my face. I could feel heat under the surface and I could hear the rush of blood between my ears.

“Are you going to be okay? Do you need me to get you something? Should I grab Dixie?” He sounded genuinely concerned about me and that only made me shake even harder.

“No, I’m fine.” I wasn’t fine and hadn’t been in a very long time. “Dixie is in Mississippi. She took Dolly down because Church moved into the house he rented for them and she wanted the dog to get used to their new home and so she could see what it was like to have a yard.” I was babbling but I couldn’t stop the words from pouring out. “How do you move me without laying a hand on me?”

He looked up from where he was watching the puppy dig into his chow. Those blue eyes were like lasers as they cut into me from across the room. He put his hands on the counter and leaned forward. “What are you talking about?” His voice held that same even tone but there was something in it, some deeper note, that let me know he knew exactly what I was talking about.

I wrapped my arms around myself in a protective hug and met his look with a pointed one of my own. “I get stuck, frozen with fear. I end up caught between memories and reality. Most people grab my arm or touch me somewhere to get me moving again. Either that or they go around me like I’m in the way. You made me move without doing anything.”

His eyebrows shot up and the corners of his mouth pulled down in a frown. “People shouldn’t touch you unless you tell them it’s okay, even if you are in the way.”

His words had me shivering in a completely different way than I had been before and I was the opposite of cold. “I didn’t use to mind it.” The words cracked and sounded almost as broken as I felt on the inside. “I mean being touched. It was until…after.”

He lowered his gaze and I saw his chest rise and fall as he sucked in a deep breath. “The reason doesn’t matter. If you don’t like it, people should respect that. No one has a right to put their hands on you unless you want them there.”

Right there in that moment I thought I wouldn’t mind it too terribly much if he walked across the room and replaced the frail and thin arms that were currently holding me together with his thick, strong, tattooed ones. It was probably the only touch I would ever crave but I would never be brave enough to ask for it, so I cleared my throat and awkwardly made my way closer to where he was standing. I lifted myself up into one of the barstools that was across the counter from him and put my hands on the cool surface separating us and prayed they would stop shaking.

BLOG TOUR – The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Title – The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
Author – Taylor Jenkins Reid
Publication Date – June 13, 2017

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband, David, has left her, and her career has stagnated. Regardless of why Evelyn has chosen her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn’s life unfolds—revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love—Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn’s story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.

Written with Reid’s signature talent for “creating complex, likable characters” (Real Simple), this is a fascinating journey through the splendor of Old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means—and what it takes—to face the truth.

I went back and forth for weeks trying to decide if I would read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. It sounded intriguing and glamorous, but I had a feeling that it could go one of two very different ways which made me apprehensive at the same time. I finally decided that my love of Reid’s writing style was worth the risk and boy, did it pay off in spades. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was a mesmerizing tale of the cut-throat culture that is Hollywood and surprised me time after time. I can guarantee that whatever you think you’re getting with this novel is nothing like what is delivered, but it’s even better!

“I had learned all too well that pain was sometimes stronger than the need to keep up appearances.”

From the very first moment I was introduced to Evelyn Hugo, I was entranced. As the pages turned and the storyline developed, I fell into her vortex much like all the people described in her life. She was a woman who was not afraid of failure, striving to achieve her goals no matter the cost. Evelyn turned out to be complex and had many layers to her personality and motives; I couldn’t help but keep turning the pages to get more and more. There was something incredibly special about watching this woman rise to the top, fall again, and experience all the ups and downs that Hollywood threw her way. Though there are bits and pieces of romance sprinkled throughout, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is most definitely a story about this irresistible woman.

“Me, I’ve always gone after what I wanted with everything in me. Others fall into happiness.”

I’ll admit that I read this because of how the synopsis sounded, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that all of my preconceived notions were proven false. The plot was like nothing I have ever come across and I simply couldn’t put it down. Reid’s writing had almost a lyrical quality to it, allowing the words to flow so smoothly and effortlessly. She is quickly becoming an author that leaves me aching to absorb whatever she gives to readers. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was layered and complex, delivering an unforgettable tale that I won’t soon forget. If you’re a reader who adores classic Hollywood, or a book where the heroine shines, I can’t recommend this one enough. It’s a gem that I’m sure people will fall in love with for years to come!

RELEASE DAY BLITZ – Time to Learn by Karen Ferry

Title: Time to Learn
Author: Karen Ferry
Series: Believe #3
Release Date: June 6, 2017

Love is blind.
Love is false.
Love is deceitful.
Until him.

My fairytale ending turned into a nightmare soon after I gave the man I thought was perfect my vows. Like the coward I was, I remained in my prison for too long. But there was one light amidst all the darkness – my daughter, Ailith.

Now, I’m a 33-year-old woman, living with her mother in a little town in Scotland that’s quiet but safe, trying to keep the family business afloat.

When will I find the courage to live again?

One day, a glance from a stranger brings me a sliver of hope that I haven’t believed in since I was young.

Will it be enough?

Love is a lie.
Love is an illusion.
Love is painful.
Until her.

She made me trip over my own two feet – made me yearn for the very thing I’ve avoided all my life: love. But she didn’t love me back. I had to escape my memories somehow, and I fled to Scotland.

Now, I’m more lost than I’ve ever been, trying to forget the woman who managed to soften my cynical heart.

Will the hole in my chest ever heal?

One day, the sorrow in a woman’s eyes causes me to trip again. My heart beats anew, and when she finally allows me to see her, I’m filled with hope.

Will she give in to me?

For Laura and Kristian, everything changes with just one glance. But can two people who have been burned in the past open their hearts and learn to love again?

Karen Ferry serves up another electric romance with Laura and Kristian’s heartfelt story in Time to Learn. Having both experienced their share of heartache, Laura and Kristian made for a deliciously angsty duo and I thoroughly enjoyed unraveling them over the course of this novel. Karen Ferry crafted a fantastic dynamic with this couple, their age difference and seemingly opposite personalities laying the groundwork for an utterly enthralling push and pull between them. Laura and Kristian’s chemisty was obvious and heady, but it was their undeniably deep connection that kept me riveted to the pages. I loved exploring Laura and Kristian’s world and found myself falling hard and fast for this perfectly matched and beautifully broken pair. My heart shattered and repaired itself several times over as I read this story but in the end Karen Ferry left it absolutely bursting and totally content.

“I was too focused on the game— the chase— that I became blinded by my own arrogance. Such a fool. Pride goes before the fall, as they say. And boy, did I fall.”

I loved Laura and everything that this character represented. Karen Ferry wrote this character to exemplify strength and courage in a way that is rare and decidedly profound. I adored how fiercely Laura loved her daughter and couldn’t help but admire everything that she had endured in life. Her determination and general positivity made it impossible not to love this heroine and I found myself invested in her happily ever after in no time at all. Kristian on the other hand, took a bit more time to understand but I was constantly surprised by his words and actions. As Karen Ferry exposed this man to the reader, I found myself connecting with him in unexpected ways and eventually, falling head over heels for his particular brand of charming. I definitely wanted a little more depth from Kristian, a closer look at his past and the history that shaped him into the man he was, but overall I thought he was pretty swoon-worthy.

“When he’s near, I forget the darkness. I smile more. I laugh again. I feel warm instead of cold; safe instead of scared; full instead of unfulfilled.”

Time to Learn was beautifully written, effortlessly showcasing the author’s incredible growth. Driven more by emotion than action, there was a simplicity to the storyline that really grabbed me. Karen Ferry expertly incorporated the colorful nuances and intriguing legends of the Scottish setting to create a fictional world that was as vibrant as it was addictive. Time to Learn was bursting with brilliant imagery and drenched in raw feeling, ensuring that the reader was wholly captivated by Laura and Kristian’s journey. While this story was a bit slow to start, I found myself enchanted by not only the hero and heroine, but by the lovable secondary characters as well. Ailith was truly one of a kind and helped reveal a lot about Laura as a character. Karen Ferry also had me totally hooked on Trish and Alex and I can’t wait to see them again in the future. Laura and Kristian’s story is sweet, thoughtful and full of feels. A great new addition to the believe series, Time to Learn is another hit from Karen Ferry!


Laura

“I’m sure it’s not difficult to find companions with the way you look.”

As if they have a mind of their own, my eyes trail up his muscular chest. I wonder if he’s got any ink hidden away underneath the black T-shirt, but when my gaze lands on his again, I bite my lip. His eyes cloud over with shadows and I wish I could take the words back.

“Maybe not. But friendships aren’t formed just because you share a bed, or something else, for a night or two. They need time for that, don’t you agree?”

I nod, attempting to hide my wince at the image of Kristian lying with some faceless woman in a bed that pops into my head.

Eeww.

Then I want to slap myself for even thinking like that. It’s not my place. But that doesn’t mean he’s convinced me yet.

“What have you got to lose?” he persists, frowning at me.

“I’ve never known any man who asked me to be friends keep his promise,” I answer quietly. “I don’t have anything to lose, as you put it, but I just want you to know why I’m hesitating.”

He sighs as he shakes his head.

“Stubborn.”

I roll my eyes at him.

“Perhaps, but Scots are known for that.”

“Okay, how does this sound?” He inches forward in his seat. “I know that Lise will be spending a lot of time at your farm, and I’d actually like to come with her from time to time. How about we agree to just try to be friends? And if one of us ends up falling for the other, we promise to say it and not keep it a secret?”

I lean closer so he can hear me better over the sound of the people milling about in the pub.

“Do you keep your promises, Kristian?”

He frowns.

“I try really hard not to break them, Laura.”

He sounds so serious, and that decides it for me. I nod, satisfied with that.

“That’s good. Okay, we have a deal.”

I raise my hand, waiting for him to shake it. When he smiles slowly at me, I suppress a slight shiver. He really is quite beautiful.

“Deal,” he says as he takes my hand.

I shake it once and then release it quickly.

“Good, but I need to make something very clear.”

“What’s that?”

“No more talk about wanting to kiss me. Friends don’t kiss.”

He laughs as he nods. “Okay, you’ll never hear me say those words again.”

Smiling, I toast him with my glass.

“Good. Now, how about I buy you a drink, friend?”

A small glint of appreciation lights up in his eyes, and he nods.

“That would be good. Thanks.”

I nod and stand up to leave him. As I walk to the bar, I wonder if I’ve just made the worst mistake of my life. But then again, what’s the harm?

As long as I keep my libido in check, I’ll be fine.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ & GIVEAWAY – The History in Us by L.B. Dunbar

Title: The History in Us
Author: L.B. Dunbar
Release Date: June 2, 2017

Are you a hero yet?
Her words rang in my head.
I wanted to be.
For you, I want to be, I told her in my dream, the dream where she kissed me again.

A hero-worthy kiss.

Stay safe, she had said. Come back to me.
My lips tingled.
The brush of hers over mine a memory held in the blackest of night,
the hottest of desert days,
and the cold-evil hell of war against hidden enemies.

I wanted another chance to taste those lips,
melt them against mine,
and mold her body to me.
I wanted to live.
For Katie.

L.B. Dunbar delivers a poignant, life-affirming tale with Katie and Levi’s story in The History in Us. From the very first page I was hooked, curious to uncover what the author had in store for these two seemingly opposite characters. I was certainly not disappointed as L.B. Dunbar took readers on a journey that raised as many questions as it answered and forced Katie and Levi to face the power of the past before exploring the possibility of a future. Since this duo shared some very brief history, The History in Us held a certain second-chance tone that kept me riveted to the pages. I needed to know how Katie and Levi’s story would play out and I was anxious to clarify their connection and reconcile their very different worlds. Despite the challenges they faced, this couple shared a heady connection and electric chemistry that made it impossible not to fall in love with them. I was hooked on Katie and Levi’s push and pull and couldn’t help but root for them to redefine their history and secure the future.

“Levi Walker happened to me, and it wasn’t the first time. It wasn’t even the second time.”

Having met Katie as a child in Sound Advice, I was thrilled to hear we’d be seeing her all grown up. I absolutely adored getting to know this character as an adult and experiencing her story in an entirely new way. L.B. Dunbar did a fantastic job allowing Katie’s book to stand on its own, while tying in that comforting familiarity of her family. I also appreciated the way L.B. Dunbar incorporated Katie’s past into her present day insecurities and fears, giving this character an authenticity that is not only rare but also incredibly beautiful. Levi, on the other hand, proved to be the perfect new addition to L.B. Dunbar’s fictional world and I loved the way she tied him back to Katie’s hometown so effortlessly. His own history was heart wrenching and made me feel, giving Levi the kind of depth and intrigue that completely captivates. While I definitely wanted to know more about this enigmatic and charming hero, there were plenty of twists where Levi was concerned to keep me turning the pages.

“But I don’t want only history with you, Katie, intertwined, and crossing over and doubling back.”

The writing was breathtaking and full of emotion, bringing Katie and Levi’s journey to life in a way that felt real and visceral. I experienced their pain as my own and reveled in the moments of joy and hope this couple shared. L.B. Dunbar had me wholly enthralled and undeniably invested in Katie and Levi’s happily ever after. While there were plenty of sweet and sexy moments in this story, The History in Us wasn’t afraid to pull any punches. The storyline definitely dealt with some painful realities and ugly truths, delivering a good dose of angst alongside the romance. Balancing out the whole thing was some much needed laughter and levity in the form of the lovable and fun secondary characters. I can only hope we’ll be seeing more of them in the future. L.B. Dunbar definitely has another hit on her hands with this contemporary romance. Smart, heartfelt, and overflowing with genuine emotion, The History in Us is an utterly unforgettable read.

REVIEW – To Portland, With Love by Cassia Leo

Title: To Portland, With Love
Author: Cassia Leo
Series: The Story of Us, #3.5
Publication Date: April 16, 2017

To Portland, With Love is a short story from the bestselling Story of Us series.

Rory and Houston are living a seemingly perfect life in their picturesque house on the lake, but all is not as rosy as it seems. Rory’s discontent with the new yuppie lifestyle she feels she’s supposed to adopt is bleeding into all aspects of their marriage, and Houston is not at all pleased. Will the stress of Rory’s first book signing bring them to the brink?

Rory and Houston are back in To Portland, With Love! This sexy little short for The Story of Us Series brought back all the feels of this couple’s tumultuous journey. I absolutely adored seeing Rory and Houston settled into their happily ever after. The heat between these two still sizzled off the pages and Cassia Leo once again managed to make me blush with Houston’s deliciously filthy mouth. Scorching encounters aside, life isn’t all sunshine and roses for Rory and Houston. Cassia Leo doesn’t shy away from the stresses of juggling a marriage, two children, and burgeoning careers. The ensuing bickering and misunderstandings, while certainly frustrating, made this couple feel incredibly genuine and further confirmed the depth of their devotion to one another with their willingness to fight for their relationship each and every day.

“Thank you for writing this story and thank you for setting it in Portland. I… felt like I was reading a book about me. No one ever writes books about people like me.”

In addition to seeing the life that Rory and Houston have built together, we get a glimpse into Rory’s writing career as she prepares for her first book signing. Her success, after everything she’d been through, and the subject of her novel, proved to be deeply satisfying for fans of The Story of Us Series. My heart swelled with pride for Rory. Mindy and Mike were a little bit of a surprise and I needed a little more on the relationship Rory and Houston had with their neighbors, especially since they ended up being a point of discomfort for Rory. While To Portland, With Love lacked the emotional intensity I’ve come to love from Cassia Leo, it definitely had its moments of honesty that made my heart ache and flutter. If anything I found myself missing this couple and wishing this story had a few more pages. Fans of Cassia Leo’s unforgettable series will undoubtedly enjoy another dose of Rory, Houston, and a few other familiar faces. To Portland, With Love is a sexy and sweet treat that will have you ready for a reunion with Rory and Houston.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ – Love My Way by Kate Sterritt

Title – Love My Way
Author – Kate Sterritt
Publication Date – May 31, 2017

Her name is Emerson Hart and she is the love of his life.

Unfortunately, he’s not the only love of hers.

And therein lies the problem.

How do I begin to review a book that so profoundly marked my soul? Kate Steritt’s Love My Way is the first book I have read by this author but she has reeled me in – hook, line, and sinker. The story was beautifully poignant with realistic characters and genuine, heartfelt emotions. I quite literally had knots in my stomach throughout the read, yet I was unable to put it down. If you get no farther reading this review, just trust me when I say it’s a game changer.

“Instead of seeing broken pieces, he sees the warrior within.”

The heroine, Emerson, was one that I was instantly drawn to. Whether Sterritt was describing the lonely home life or the difficult situations as she grew older, I could see pieces of myself in her. She was a fighter, and a survivor, no matter what she faced. While there were times I wanted to pity her, her strength and resilience forced me to feel nothing but sympathy for her instead. There’s something about the way Emerson is written that had me falling in love and rooting for her from the very first moment she was introduced. The leading men are also phenomenal, and will undoubtedly make readers swoon, but Emerson stole the show for me. Love My Way was her journey and I felt it down to my very core.

“Running from this is pointless, but so is standing still hoping something is going to change.”

Not only was I impressed with the character development, but Sterritt’s writing also blew me out of the water. So many times, I could feel my breath being stolen away as my heart skipped numerous beats. Even though I had an inkling of where the ending was going, the plot was poignant and beautifully written, which resulted in the journey of a lifetime. Love My Way was a story of love and loss, and how humans can find light even when all hope has disappeared. Simply put, this story is impossible not to love. As I’ve stated, this was my first Sterritt book but with all those feels, I promise it’s not my last. I laughed and cried and felt utterly inspired; I definitely cannot wait for more from this very talented lady!
