Christie’s Review

5 STARS

This was the perfect ending to one of my favorite series!!!! I’m sorry to say good-bye to the characters that I have come to love. 

I thought Kent did a great job in how she laid the book out which couldn’t have been an easy feat since she had so many characters. For example, the plot moved seamlessly. She began when they were still young and dating. Then, she gave her readers the romantic weddings and honeymoons I had been dying to see.  Of course, she also introduced us to the sweet babies that come from such love!!!! 

I enjoyed catching up with each couple and seeing where life took them. As anyone who has read the books know there was darkness, but each couple ended up with light and joy in the end. Their friendship has endured and grown closer since they have grown into adults. 

The Royal Elite Series has been one of my very favorite series to read…with great characters and great storylines. If you haven’t given this one a try, you really should!!!!

Lovebug (The Natural History Series #2) by Erin Mallon Cover Reveal

My name is Mabel, the girl who “wouldn’t hurt a fly.”

Lovebug, an all-new rom com standalone and second book in The Natural History Series from bestselling author Erin Mallon is coming February 24th and we have the incredible cover!

Of course I wouldn’t. 

I’m an entomologist for goodness’ sake. 

I work in a nature center.

Bugs are my jam. 

It’s the humans in my life who are starting to get me down. I’m used to them calling me sweet and innocent. I can even handle them calling me naive. But when they lie and keep secrets from me? That’s when my proverbial pincers want to come out. 

Trouble is, I’m not the girl who fights back.

Not until a handsome groundskeeper with a dirty mouth and secrets of his own shows up and lights all sorts of fires in me.

In the bug world, the female is always the fiercest. The praying mantis doesn’t worry about being a “good girl.” Nope, she follows her instincts no matter how crass or crude they may seem to others. 

Turns out I could learn a thing or two from her.

I’m not necessarily looking to tear anyone’s head off, but after decades of being nice, it’s high time for me to return to nature and unleash my wild side.

Fate Actually (Moonstone Cove Series #2) by Elizabeth Hunter Release Blitz

Fate Actually, a murder mystery shrouded in the supernatural and the second book in the Moonstone Cove Series and from USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Hunter is available now!

Toni Dusi grew up knowing everyone’s business and everyone knowing hers, because in Moonstone Cove, you can’t pass a restaurant, farm, or winery that doesn’t have at least one Dusi involved. Despite that, Toni has managed to carve out a private niche for herself. She has a car shop she loves, a country cottage all to herself, and has carefully avoided any long-term romantic commitments. 

Then fate handed Toni a shot of supernatural empathy that threw all that out the window of her prized vintage Ford.

Now she’s feeling the mood swings of everyone from her parts guy to her reluctant crush to her second cousin going through a messy divorce. She’s losing her temper; she’s crying a river; and she’s definitely giving in to temptation. 

For a woman who prides herself on always being prepared, Toni has no idea how to handle a supernatural storm of emotion.

Which is not to say empathy doesn’t have its advantages. When the body of a long-time family rival turns up on a back acre of her cousin’s winery, Toni realizes that her inconvenient feelings magic has turned her into one heck of a lie detector. Along with her new friends, Katherine and Megan, she might be the only one who can clear her cousin’s name.

When fate throws a final curveball in Toni’s direction, will she drop everything with disastrous consequences? Or can a forty-one-year-old empath learn enough new tricks to keep the life she’s built without sacrificing her happiness?

—Carly Phillips, New York Times bestselling author 

You Had Me at Hockey, an all-new opposites attract sexy sports romance standalone from USA Today bestselling author Kelly Jamieson is available now!

Can a spirited, down-to-earth influencer get an uptight hockey player out of his shell?

Josh

I am a warrior. That’s been my motto since I recovered from a near-death accident when I was younger. Now I enjoy my nice, settled life in Dallas playing pro hockey—a boring life is better than being dead. I’m not a party guy or an adventurer; I like my routine and peace and quiet. So being traded to New York is the worst possible change that could happen. And meeting unfiltered and fascinating Sara Carrington throws my life into even more chaos.

Sara

I’ve been considered weird my whole life, which is why I’m still a virgin, but I’ve turned it into a career with my YouTube videos. Who knew people would love watching me talk about my zits, taste-test meatless burgers, and try to learn TikTok dances! Now I’m launching a podcast. Getting hockey star Josh Heller as a guest will help gain listeners for sure. I expect a bearded jock with no teeth and nothing to say, but I get a hot as H-E-double-hockey-sticks grouch with a surprisingly dirty mind. My mission to make him laugh is successful, but I want to know why he’s so uptight underneath that panty-dropping smile. Maybe I can teach Josh to have some fun . . . and maybe he can teach me a thing or two along the way. . .

Excerpt

I ask the driver to wait while I go inside to get her. I texted her to let her know I’m here and she said she’s on her way down. I enter the red brick building through brass doors beneath a small canopy and wait in the lobby. I study the marble tiles and woodwork and the art on the walls under the watchful eye of the doorman.

She emerges from the elevator and I watch her walk toward me, her faux fur coat hanging open. My gaze wanders from a chunky gold necklace shining at her throat, down over the short black dress to her excellent legs, and then lower to sexy black shoes with impossibly skinny heels.

Whoa.

What a contrast from the girl I hung out with the other day. But when I meet her eyes, it’s the same person, those sea green eyes dancing with life and humor. “Hi.”

“Hi. You look gorgeous.”

“Thanks. You look gorgeous too.” She touches the lapel of my black wool coat.

“The taxi’s waiting for us.” I set my hand on her low back and usher her out as the doorman opens the door for us. We slide into the back of the bright yellow car and I give the driver the restaurant address.

Sara shifts so she can face me. “I’ve heard of this place but never been there. This’ll be fun!”

We make small talk on the way there. I discover she watched the game last night, which startles me. Although . . . I like it.

“I have questions,” she announces. “So many questions.”

“About?”

“Hockey. I mean, I didn’t understand much. You guys move so fast out there! They drop the puck and wham, everyone’s skating all over the place.”

“Uh, yeah.” I’m amused by her description.

“They were talking about you.”

“Who was?” Clearly, her mind zips all over the place.

“The TV guys. They seem to think it was a good deal to get you from Dallas. They said . . . hell, I don’t remember what they said, but they were complimenting you.”

My mouth twitches into a near-smile. “Oh yeah? Were they talking about my passing and shooting skills? My controlled entries?”

She frowns. “Why does that sound dirty? How do you make hockey sound dirty all the time?”

“It’s one of my hidden skills. They probably didn’t talk about that.”

She snorts. “No! They didn’t.”

“It must have been my amazing skating. My hockey sense? My high compete level?”

“Well, they weren’t talking about your modesty.”

Goddamn, she makes me laugh.

“They probably said all those things,” she admits. “It sounded really good anyway. I thought how cool it was that I know you.”

I like that she’s maybe a little impressed with me since I’m kind of intimidated by her.

Traffic is nuts. We’re barely moving. The driver keeps honking, but there’s nowhere for the cars in front of us to go, so I don’t get the point of it.

We keep talking, but after a while I pull out my phone to check the time. It feels like we’ve only traveled two blocks. “Shit,” I mutter.

“What’s wrong?”

“Our reservation is for seven. This traffic is nuts.”

“Of course. It’s Saturday night in Manhattan.”

I hate being late. I hate rushing. I hate not being in control. “We could get out and walk there faster.”

She laughs softly and pats my leg. Well, that’s distracting. “Not in these heels, dude.

Mistletoe Wishes by JJ Carlson Blog Tour with Excerpt

Mistletoe Wishes, an all-new steamy holiday read from JJ Carlson, is available now! 

The last thing Keaton wants is to be stuck in the small town his father owns for the holidays. The only thing he detests more than Christmas is small towns that make a big deal over the holiday. Especially a holiday Keaton associates with his mother’s death. Keaton plans to get rid of his father’s investment as quickly as possible, but what he doesn’t expect is to get tangled in tinsel with the beautiful Harper—a feisty little baker who is determined to push his limits.

Harper wants nothing more than to make her bakery, Mistletoe Wishes, a successful franchise. She’s worked hard to get to where she is today and isn’t about to let anything—or anyone—stand in her way. With relationships and romance being at the bottom of her list, Harper finds herself in unfamiliar territory when she meets the sexy Keaton Snow. His aversion and distaste for Christmas and her home town are the only things she doesn’t find attractive about him. 

Will Keaton open his heart up to Harper and let the joy of the season, and a promise of a future, deter his plans to sell the town he grew up resenting?

EXCERPT

My eyes move down to her pouty pink lips, where it lingers for a bit longer than it should. I’m glad when a knock on the door breaks the spell this woman has me under. I don’t know what it is about her, but there is something.

“Just in time,” she says happily, handing me her decoration. She opens the door, and a staff member pushes in a tray. She thanks the woman at the door, and wheels the tray inside, before shutting the door behind her.

“What is all this?” I ask in wonderment.

“Cookies, because we didn’t have any this morning, eggnog and some warm apple cider—extra kick. I wasn’t sure which you would prefer.”

“Both.” I grin and swipe a cookie off the tray. I groan in delight as it melts in my mouth. “Now, this here is a mouth-watering cookie,” I say looking her up and down in the process. And the cookies were mouth-watering, but so was Harper. I notice the scarlet flush creeping across her cheeks.

“Get your mind out of the gutter, Harper.” I tease.

“What?” She giggles, and I swear it’s my new favorite sound. She lifts her mug of eggnog, so I do the same. I clink my glass to hers, taking a sip of the best eggnog I have ever tasted.

After I’ve eaten too many cookies, she gives me the rundown of how and where to place the decorations after I string up the lights. She warns me that she is the creative genius behind this process, and any urge to change things will not be tolerated. I have never laughed so hard in my life. When we’re intoxicated from the cider, I wrap some tinsel around her neck and playfully pull her closer. There’s a flash of alarm, followed by a twinkle of lust in her eyes, and I feel my throat constrict. I should kiss her, and finally taste those luscious lips of hers that I’ve craved since that first night stranded in the snow.

“I’m dizzy.” She giggles,suddenly pulling away from me. Her absence leaves me longing with an impulse to pull her close to me again. To smell the vanilla scent of her hair.

We sit at the foot of my bed and stare up at what I concede to be the most beautiful tree I have ever laid eyes on. I may be sitting on the floor of a lodge in an ugly sweater, but I have never had this much fun. I glance her way and decide that Harper Clifford is the most beautiful woman I have ever laid eyes upon. Ever.

“This is the best part,” she says, her eyes twinkling when she looks at the lights. “Sitting down after a job well done and being able to appreciate your creation and handiwork.”

“We make a pretty good team.” I lean slightly and nudge her shoulder.

“That we do.” She looks up at me with a smile so bright it makes me feel warm inside. I can’t remember the last time I felt this way, not with my family, nor with Ana. Being here in this small town in the middle of nowhere with a woman who is as gorgeous as she is smart, I realize I have never truly felt at peace until this moment. I also know that I have to be honest with her about everything.

“What would you do if you weren’t a hotshot businessman?” she asks casually.

I look away from her, then back. “I’d write books.”

“Yeah?” She turns a little toward me. “What kind of books?”

“Tragic love stories.” I smile at her. Maybe, I’d write stories about women like her and men like me who meet at the wrong time in their lives.

“Why not the smutty kind?” She bites down on the corner of her lip. Holy fuck! Maybe I’d write about what I’d like to do to that pretty little mouth. I have to look away.

“Harper, I should tell you—” She looks up at me, and for a second, I believe in miracles. She closes the distance, her lips brushing against mine. There is an undercurrent of pure unbridled desire, but it’s mixed with something else. She lowers onto her knees beside me, her eyes holding mine hostage. Small hands cradle my face, and the sweet scent of her is intoxicating. I want to lean in closer, watch her unravel beneath me, explore every curve of her body in front of the fireplace. She is perfect, everything I want but I don’t deserve. Her eyes flutter closed. The urge to kiss her is so strong. I pull her closer to me, but instead of kissing her, I hold her to my chest. I can feel her breathing quicken, as she tenses in my arms.

“I’m sorry,” she says, pulling away from me. She stands, and I lean my hands on my knees, watching her walk away. I should go after her and explain, but I find myself looking up at the tree, getting lost in all the reasons I shouldn’t. Maybe I’m a coward. Perhaps I’m a fool. One thing I am not is the man who deserves a woman like Harper.

New Review: The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix

The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires

by Grady Hendrix

About the Book:

The New York Times Best Seller
#1 April LibraryReads Pick
April Indie Next Pick

Goodreads Big Book of Spring

Steel Magnolias 
meets Dracula in this ’90s-set horror novel about a women’s book club that must do battle with a mysterious newcomer to their small Southern town, perfect for murderinos and fans of Stephen King.


Patricia Campbell’s life has never felt smaller. Her husband is a workaholic, her teenage kids have their own lives, her senile mother-in-law needs constant care, and she’s always a step behind on her endless to-do list. The only thing keeping her sane is her book club, a close-knit group of Charleston women united by their love of true crime. At these meetings they’re as likely to talk about the Manson family as they are about their own families.

One evening after book club, Patricia is viciously attacked by an elderly neighbor, bringing the neighbor’s handsome nephew, James Harris, into her life. James is well traveled and well read, and he makes Patricia feel things she hasn’t felt in years. But when children on the other side of town go missing, their deaths written off by local police, Patricia has reason to believe James Harris is more of a Bundy than a Brad Pitt. The real problem? James is a monster of a different kind—and Patricia has already invited him in. 

Little by little, James will insinuate himself into Patricia’s life and try to take everything she took for granted—including the book club—but she won’t surrender without a fight in this blood-soaked tale of neighborly kindness gone wrong.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

What a fantastic book…unlike anything I have read in a while!!!!

The synopsis sums the book up, “Steel Magnolias meets Dracula.” It was the selection for my book club’s October read, and it couldn’t have been more perfect for Halloween. 

Our main character, Patricia, has her plate full. Her husband’s work seems to be more important than his family life. Her children are now teenagers, and she is the full-time caretaker of her mother-in-law who is suffering from some type of dementia. The one thing she looks forward to is her book club. 

Her life completely changes when she is attacked one night by her neighbor, and her nephew becomes embroiled in her life, more and more every day. She feels a pull toward him but soon begins to realize he may not be who he claims to be…he may be something much more dangerous. She will have to rely on her friends in the book club to save herself and those she loves. 

There were so many things I loved about this book! First, I’m a Charleston girl myself so I love reading anything that takes place in Charleston. The author really captured what old Mt. Pleasant was like in the 90s, changing yet charming. 

Second, I liked the little twist on the vampire genre. James is definitely not your typical vampire. Third, the bond these women share highlights everything that is so special in female relationships. Hendrix amazed me with his insight into what makes female relationships so incredibly special. 

In addition, I loved the characters. Patricia is the main character, but her fellow book club women are complex characters in their own right. They each add their own strengths to the story! When these ladies join forces, they are formidable opponents. 

Most importantly, the author touches on the important issue of race and socio-economic differences. Even though the story takes place in the 90s, these are still relevant today. 

Don’t make the mistake of thinking there aren’t some really creepy parts to this book….there are!!!! It is a book about a vampire, and James might be charming, but he is a monster! 

Grady Hendrix gave his readers a fantastic read. He combined so many elements, such as horror and yes, even humor. There were some parts that were quite funny. He also added in important social issues. Each element was blended flawlessly together without overpowering each other. He has a new fan in me. In fact, I have downloaded several of his other books as well!

Layla by Colleen Hoover Release Blitz

“Surprising and emotionally tense, this paranormal romance is sure to entertain.” —Publishers Weekly

Layla, an all-new thrilling and “unputdownable” novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, is available now!

When Leeds meets Layla, he’s convinced he’ll spend the rest of his life with her—until an unexpected attack leaves Layla fighting for her life. After weeks in the hospital, Layla recovers physically, but the emotional and mental scarring has altered the woman Leeds fell in love with. In order to put their relationship back on track, Leeds whisks Layla away to the bed-and-breakfast where they first met. Once they arrive, Layla’s behavior takes a bizarre turn. And that’s just one of many inexplicable occurrences.

Feeling distant from Layla, Leeds soon finds solace in Willow—another guest of the B&B with whom he forms a connection through their shared concerns. As his curiosity for Willow grows, his decision to help her find answers puts him in direct conflict with Layla’s well-being. Leeds soon realizes he has to make a choice because he can’t help both of them. But if he makes the wrong choice, it could be detrimental for all of them.

Holiday Romance · New Release · Release Blitz · Romance

Mistletoe Wishes by JJ Carlson Release Blitz

Mistletoe Wishes, an all-new small-town holiday romance from JJ Carlson, is available now! 

The last thing Keaton wants is to be stuck in the small town his father owns for the holidays. The only thing he detests more than Christmas is small towns that make a big deal over the holiday. Especially a holiday Keaton associates with his mother’s death. Keaton plans to get rid of his father’s investment as quickly as possible, but what he doesn’t expect is to get tangled in tinsel with the beautiful Harper—a feisty little baker who is determined to push his limits.

Harper wants nothing more than to make her bakery, Mistletoe Wishes, a successful franchise. She’s worked hard to get to where she is today and isn’t about to let anything—or anyone—stand in her way. With relationships and romance being at the bottom of her list, Harper finds herself in unfamiliar territory when she meets the sexy Keaton Snow. His aversion and distaste for Christmas and her home town are the only things she doesn’t find attractive about him. 

Will Keaton open his heart up to Harper and let the joy of the season, and a promise of a future, deter his plans to sell the town he grew up resenting?
