synopsis

Gabriella Alvarez is the youngest of the Alvarez family. She’s watched her best friend marry her brother and another brother find love. Deep down, she’s looking for love, but she can’t quite shake the college sweetheart that broke her heart.

Dr. Ashton Holder works for the famous Alvarez practice. He and Gabriella have always clashed—she continues to see him only has the rough-edged doctor with no bedside manner, but he’s really made strides to put this image behind him.

When Gabriella discovers a secret from Ashton’s past, though, she does her best to help him uncover something that will change his life forever, but a misunderstanding between them rocks him to the core. When he finally uncovers the secret, he must learn to put his past aside and try and move on with a future willed with hope and dreams.

Life’s Turned Upside Down is the third book in Anne Stone’s Show Me series.

29 Apr

midnight target

 

synopsis

 

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Score and Midnight Revenge…

Four years ago, Cate’s entire life changed when she discovered she was the daughter of a supersoldier. But Jim Morgan’s overprotectiveness has pushed her away. These days, she’s working as a freelance photographer and living the dangerous life Jim never wanted for her.
 
When Cate snaps a photo linking a corrupt South American politician with the leader of a notorious drug cartel, her mercenary father leads a team to rescue her—only to get shot and critically wounded in the process.
 
As Morgan’s operatives rally together on a revenge mission, they’re faced with new alliances and old heartaches. Cate is forced to work with David “Ash” Ashton, the man who broke her heart two years ago, while Liam Macgregor and Sullivan Port resurface after years apart to finally try to deal with everything they’d left unsaid.
 
Soon it’s all-out war between the cartel and the mercenaries—with two couples caught in the middle of the blood feud. Love and redemption are within their reach…but first, they have to make it home alive.

From the Paperback edition.

5-star-a

If you are looking for a sexy, thrilling, romantic suspense novel, look no further than this one by Elle Kennedy. Readers actually get two couples in this book, Cate and Ash, and Liam and Sully. Once the book begins, it starts out quickly, and the action doesn’t stop until close to the end of the book.

Cate is the daughter of Jim Morgan, the leader of an elite group of mercenaries. Once he discovered he had a daughter, he did everything possible to protect her. Instead, he pushed her away, and the two haven’t really seen eye to eye in several years. She’s now a freelance photographer who finds herself in danger after she takes a picture of a dangerous drug lord. He’s determined to end her life. She’s desperate and calls her father. Of course, he comes with his team to rescue her, but he gets shot, and is critically wounded. Now, his team is out for blood. Cate wants a part in this. If she does this, it will put her back together with the man, Ash, who broke her heart years ago. As the team reunites, so do Liam and Sully who parted ways with many things left up in the air between them. As you might have guessed, this is one roller coaster of a ride.

Not many writers could write about two couples in addition to the overall story of the group trying to bring the end to an evil man’s reign. However, Elle Kennedy not only succeeds, but she does it flawlessly. To make it even better, her writing is outstanding. Yes, she writes with a lot of description and some of the scenes are extremely graphic. Reading about the pictures that Cate took put me there in that horrible place with her. It broke my heart. But, those graphic scenes are what drew me into the story.

I loved the dual POVs of Ash, Cate, Liam, and Sully. It allowed me to see what they were thinking and feeling. The chapters of flashbacks of all four people also gave me insight into each one as well. Fantastic book!

Wow!!!! What a heart pounding, emotional romance! This opens with the aftermath of Cole’s stalker’s violent action at the end of Book 2. It’s left Rose in a coma, and Cole having to go on tour. When he returns, Rose isn’t sure where he fits into her life, especially with her meddling mother’s involvement. Cole has to work hard to make her remember their love for one another. As they are trying to find their way back to each other again, the crazed stalker is still on the loose. As you can imagine, this is one wild, emotional read that won’t let you go until you have finished the last page.

I loved the unlikely romance between the sexy rock star and the sassy publicist in the previous book. I loved them even more in this one, especially Cole. He has grown so much from what he was. His love for Rose is completely unconditional. He never gave up the fight for Rose, despite all the outside influences, especially Rose’s mother. He even tried to be nice to her because of Rose’s love for her. He is so patient with Rose, and he never pushes her. I thought Rose had matured in Book 1, but boy, she amazed me in this one. It takes a special kind of person to not only fight to gain her physical strength but her mental strength as well. I can’t imagine how hard it is for her, knowing she feels a connection with Cole, but doesn’t know if she will be safe with him. Thankfully, she realizes pretty soon that Cole is important to her. I fell in love with them all over again.

Not only was this a romance, but it was a thriller as well. I never knew what his stalker was going to do next which also kept the me flying through the novel. I love the way Rivers writes. She has a way of immersing her readers in the book! If you are looking for a great romantic thriller, try this series today! Can’t wait for the next one which will be Wills and Emilie’s story!

About Arell Rivers

For as long as I can remember, I have been lost in a book. During my senior year in college, I picked up a Danielle Steel novel … and instantly was hooked on romance.

I started writing my first novel, No One to Hold, because the characters were screaming at me to do so. The story started coming out in my dreams and attacking me in the shower, so I took to the computer to shut them up. But they kept talking.

Born and raised in New Jersey, I have what some may call a “checkered past.” Prior to discovering my passion for writing romance, I practiced law, was a wedding and event planner and even dabbled in marketing. I live with a very supportive husband and two mischievous cats. When not in my writing cave, I can be found making dinner in the crock pot, working out with Shaun T or hitting the beach.

I hope you enjoy my stories about driven men, strong women and the passions that ignite!

All About the D by Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam Cover Reveal + Giveaway

Title: All About the D
Authors: Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam

Genre: Standalone Romantic Comedy

Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

Model: Mitchell Wick

Photographer: Wong Sim

Release Date: May 2, 2017

 

A sexy new romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin and bestselling author Leslie McAdam…

 

ALL ABOUT THE D

 

I’m known for being formal. Meticulous. Professional.

 

So you’d never suspect I spend my nights photographing my impressive junk for a NSFW blog. Don’t roll your eyes. I’m not bragging. I have millions of followers who’ll tell you they live for my posts.

 

I’m like a superhero, saving humanity one dick pic at a time.

 

Except leading a double life means I need someone to help me protect my anonymity, so that no one, especially my family, ever discovers my online celebrity.

 

When I call one of the most respected law firms in town, I expect quality legal advice and confidentiality. Not a sinfully sexy attorney whose dangerous curves and soul-piercing gray eyes make me want to personally demonstrate my particular skill set.

 

I shouldn’t be tempted.

 

Especially when she knows all of my best-kept secrets. But everyone has a breaking point. And I’ve met mine.

Say You’ll Be Mine (A Nola Heart Novel) by Maria Luis A Nola Heart Novel Release Blitz + Giveaway

27 Apr

Say You’ll Be Mine

by Maria Luis
A Nola Heart Novel
Publication Date: April 27, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Read for FREE in Kindle Unlimited: Amazon

Falling in love with your ex should never feel this good …

Twelve years, three cities, and too many pairs of stilettos later, Shaelyn Lawrence is back in the one place she vowed never to return: New Orleans.

Thankfully, her hometown stint is temporary. Better yet, she has a plan guaranteed to get her out ASAP:

  • Return her aging-but-still-crazy grandmother back to health;
  • Help her cousin with her boutique;
  • Evade Brady Taylor, her high school sweetheart, a.k.a the reason she fled Louisiana in the first place.

Brady isn’t even a footnote … until one unexpected run-in with him changes everything. She shouldn’t be tempted by his drawl, she shouldn’t be tempted by the promise of his kiss, she shouldn’t want him.

But she does.

Oh, boy, this was so not the plan.

– –

Twelve years, one city, and too many issued traffic tickets later, Homicide Detective Brady Taylor is all geared up for being promoted to sergeant within the New Orleans Police Department. Or, he would be — if he wasn’t sitting in third place.

Thankfully, he’s cut out every possible distraction:

  • Hanging out with his buddies;
  • Women;
  • And, God help him, football.

His life should be distraction-free . . . but then Shaelyn Lawrence waltzes back into it, with her sexy red lips, curvy body, and her f***-me heels. Brady should run in the opposite direction. He definitely shouldn’t spend time pursuing her, kissing her, or landing her in his bed.

But he does.

Shaelyn may have left once, but Brady is determined to prove that Shaelyn belongs in New Orleans. She belongs with him.


For fans of Jill Shalvis and Lauren Layne, Maria Luis’ new sexy contemporary romance will leave you laughing and desperate for more! SAY YOU’LL BE MINE is the first full-length novel in the NOLA Heart series, but can be read as a standalone.

serenity - about the book

SerenityEbook-B&N 

Matthew Bennett has suffered the worst sort of betrayal a man can ever know, and he’s trying to put his life back together after years of unhappiness and emotional neglect. He desperately needs the care and devotion of a good woman, someone who will not only erase the hurt he’s experienced, but help him cope with the tremendous stress and responsibility he endures daily as the CEO of a multibillion dollar corporation.

Through the yoga classes that she teaches, and her successful massage practice, Sasha Fonseca spends her days helping others improve their health and wellbeing, and also learning to combat stress. She leads a simple but serene life, content with the little she has, but shies away from any sort of long term commitments or serious relationships. Her unconventional upbringing has also made her fiercely independent, and she won’t let anyone try to mold her into something she’s not ever again.

Sasha is enlisted to help Matthew in a professional capacity, but it isn’t long before she finds herself drawn to him on an emotional and physical level as well. With a woman like Sasha in his life, Matthew finally believes he’s found the happiness that’s eluded him all these years. But will his scheming, soon-to-be ex find a way to destroy him once again, or will he get the happy ending that he deserves?
