Doppelbanger by Heather M. Orgeron Release Blitz with Review

Title: Doppelbanger

Standalone

Author: Heather M. Orgeron
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 3, 2018
Blurb
Doppelbanger; A person who bangs someone solely because they
look similar to another person they want to bang.
At thirty-five, Gina Bourque is still playing the field. If
he’s single, in his early twenties with dark hair and brooding eyes, there’s a
damn good chance you’ll find him in her little black book.
Jeffrey Ryan never imagined that at nearly forty he’d find
himself widowed and a single dad. But here he is—stumbling through this thing
called life with two impressionable daughters watching his every move.
When Gina and Jeffrey meet while cruising the Caribbean,
sparks fly and not in a good way. He’s too old. Too blond. Too stiff. Yet she’s
still drawn to him like a moth to a flame. She’s too vulgar. Too sassy. Too
wild. But she ignites something inside of him he can’t ignore.

We all know what happens when you play with fire. . .
someone’s bound to get burned.

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

5 STARS

Doppelbanger is one of the funniest romantic comedies I have read in a while. Heather M. Orgeron had me in stitches the entire time I was reading the book!

Let me begin with Gina…this woman owns the room when she walks in it! She is tiny, hence the nickname, Tink, Jeffrey gives her. Her personality IS GIANT!!!! She is in her mid-thirties, and she is still enjoying the single life. She has a type, usually 20-something and most definitely not into commitment! When she meets Jeffrey on a cruise she is taking with her godsons, he is the complete opposite of who she is normally attracted to. He is a CEO of a successful company, has two daughters, and is way too serious for her. Yet, the sparks fly between them.

Jeffrey is successful and a wonderful father. His daughters are his world. When he finds his older daughter kissing one of Gina’s godsons, he is appalled. He is even more appalled when he finds Gina and tells her what he saw. Instead of being upset, she is congratulating him on his first kiss. He finds her crass and over-the-top. Yet, he has never met a woman like her, and he is desperately attracted to her. As they spend more time together, the chemistry and lust grow. The two agree on a no-strings fling while on vacation. Those agreements work so well, don’t they? As you might guess, this couple can’t forget one another, but can they take a leap of faith and find their HEA? It is quite a journey they took me on, but I relished every single moment of it!

If you are a reader who enjoys slapstick comedy but also enjoy some steam and a really SWEET romance, you will not be disappointed in this book! I LOVED the epilogues…yes, you get two! Orgeron knows how to expertly combine romance, sex, comedy, and fantastic characters that make this one of my favorite romantic reads of the year!!!

SAVE ME

by Cecy Robson
O’Brien Family, #5
Publication Date: April 25, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Standalone

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS:

RT Book Reviews proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson “has the hottest brothers ever!” And in SAVE ME, it’s time for Seamus, the family’s most notorious bachelor, to find true love.

Three weddings. No date. What’s a hot stud to do when all the women on his speed dial are either serving dinner to their families or serving time?

Out of all the O’Briens, Seamus is the best-looking, most creative, and, did I mention, best-looking? Single at almost forty wasn’t a big deal until every sibling in his large and loud Irish family found “the one.” Now, he’s desperate for a wedding date, one he doesn’t have to worry will make out with the limo driver or rob the bride and groom blind.

Allie Mendes is the good daughter, who’s spent her life living in her perfect sister’s shadow. But when her sister steals the man Allie was supposed to marry, that shadow she’s lived in threatens to swallow her whole. Allie wants to believe a bright future awaits. But when she begs God to save her from this disastrous twist of fate, the last person she expects Him to send her is Seamus O’Brien.

Allie needs a stand-in boyfriend to avoid appearing as lonely as she feels. Seamus needs a decent woman without an ankle bracelet or a rap sheet as long as his muscular arms. The two make a deal to pose as each other’s perfect date. But weddings mean romance and a chance at forever neither had planned.

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

5 STARS

I have long been a fan of Cecy Robson, and this book is a perfect example of why! I love this series, and this was a perfect farewell to them!

I was finally happy to get Seamus’s story. I love the fact that he is older, 37. He proves that older men are just as sexy as younger men which is ironic because he needs a date to take to his siblings’ weddings. He has found himself wanting to settle down, but he hasn’t dated or hooked up with the best girls around. Some even have rap sheets. He tells his family he has a “nice” girl he has been seeing, but he didn’t want to tell them right away. He needs to find “his girlfiend” quickly. Fate steps in when he meets Allie Mendes in a bakery.

Allie is a real estate agent, and she is good at it. She doesn’t keep promises she can’t keep to her clients, an overwhelming amount of senior citizens. She feels like she will never measure to her sister who has beauty and brains, and now she is marrying the man who Allie was supposed to marry before they betrayed her years before. She doesn’t necessarily get along with her mother. Seriously, this woman doesn’t think there is anything wrong with this!!!

OMG! I loved their meeting in the bakery. It was hysterical. When Allie tries to tell him who she is, he thinks she is someone he slept with…that was priceless. He also stuck his foot so far in his throat, he may need a surgeon to remove it!!!! However, they enjoy themselves catching up, and when her sister appears with her fiancé, Seamus steps up as her boyfriend after she pleads with him under her breath to “save me.” This is the beginning of a wonderful friendship and an even more special relationship. There is plenty of chemistry, but there is a deep respect for one another as well!

What is wonderful about this book is their friendship despite them having feelings for one another. He helps Allie see her own beauty despite how much her mother and sister have put her down. He also gave her hope which she didn’t have before. She is a woman he can depend on. The title of the book says it all…they were saving each other at a time when they needed someone, not knowing it was going to lead to something extraordinary.

I loved catching up with others in the family, and their small mother steals the scene every time she appears. She might be little, but she can put the fear in God in her SEVEN children.
My only regret is saying good-bye to this most wonderful family! I felt like I became a part of their clan! Thank you, Cecy Robson, for making me feel that way. I have shed tears, I have been overjoyed, and I have fallen in love with the O’Brien’s!!! Thanks for the memories!!!

New Review: Fortuity (Fortuity Duet Book 1) by Rochelle Paige (5 ++ STARS) & Top Read of 2018!!!!

 

Fortuity, the first in the all-new, emotional and romantic Fortuity Duet by Rochelle Paige, is available NOW!

Fortuity paperback

The only kinds of luck I knew were bad and worse…until my life hung in the balance. I finally caught a break in the form of a second chance.

I vowed not to let it go to waste.

To make a difference.

But I didn’t start really living until I met him.

Dillon Montgomery.

My complete opposite—except for our matching tortured souls.

I couldn’t resist him for long.

How could I when his smallest touch made my heart race?

When it felt like we were destined to be together.

But sometimes luck and sorrow are intertwined…

Excerpt:

Dillon twisted his neck and flashed me an apologetic grin over his shoulder. Unwanted butterflies swirled in my belly, and I quickly yanked my hands away from his shoulders and took a step backwards. His eyes flashed with male satisfaction and his grin grew wider. Determined to ignore the impact he had on me, I shifted my focus to the students. “Your test date is coming fast, so you’ll need to squeeze in as much extra study time as you can without neglecting your regular coursework. Maybe set aside some time during Thanksgiving break when you don’t have as much homework.”
“Ugh. Studying over break sucks,” one of the girls complained.
“Yeah, but you guys are in the homestretch. This test score is one of the last things you need to get into college. Trust me, it’ll be worth the extra effort.”
“I guess if you could get into college while recovering from a transplant, then the least I can do is a little bit of studying over a holiday break that isn’t even that big of a deal since I don’t have a family to celebrate it with anyway.”
The other kids nodded in agreement, and I snuck a peek at Dillon while everyone finished packing up. His brown eyes were wide with shock. I quickly looked away before he could ask me anything, and focused on saying my goodbyes as the kids all headed out. We both kept quiet—for which I was incredibly grateful—as Dillon helped me clean up the room. When we were back on the road, I turned to him and asked, “Were you really teaching my kids how to count cards?”
His lips tilted up at the edges. “Maybe just a little.”
“It’s a good thing none of them have any money to gamble or else they might learn to enjoy blackjack as much as you do.” His lip tilt turned into a full-fledged grin, and I glared at him. “I don’t know why you’re grinning at me! Look at what your affinity for gambling got you.”
“What?” He pointed at his face. “The black eye?”
“Yeah, for starters.”
His grin grew into a blinding smile. “It was worth it.”
“What? Why?”
“Because it’s the reason I met you.”
Shit. Those damn butterflies took flight in my stomach again

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

5 ++ STARS

~5 ++ STARS~

Fortuity by Rochelle Paige is an absolutely stunning, beautiful, and emotional read. It is a top read of 2018 for me!

Take my advice, grab the tissues early, like the very first chapter. Faith is one of those rare, special characters that I will never forget. She really shouldn’t be here, but she is a survivor. She grew up with a drug addicted mother, finding her overdosed at the age of 12. This is where Rochelle Paige shines. Faith was much better off without her mother, but Paige helped me understand why Faith missed her. She was used to what she was living in, and she was scared and unsure of what life would hold for her now. As it turns out, she will be in danger again. Her foster mother didn’t much care for her and allowed a simple, curable illness almost take Faith’s life. Faith is looking death right in the face when she gets a miracle…the kidney she needs to live. Instead of becoming bitter or descending into a dark hole of depression, she works hard, gets good grades, and makes it into college. She doesn’t stop there. She works tirelessly helping other foster kids go to college as well. This is when she meets Elaine Montgomery, a woman that will completely change the course of Faith’s life.

Elaine is Dillion’s mother. Dillion is dealing with loss and pain too, but he deals with it by gambling. Some of the book is told from his POV, but most of it is from Faith’s perspective. Dillion really is a good guy, and it doesn’t take him long to appreciate and fall for Faith. Faith falls pretty quickly for Dillion as well.

There are so many emotions that Paige will draw out of you…sadness, fear, joy, and she will also shock you. There is a twist, and Faith will be challenged yet again. I can’t say enough about how wonderful this book is. It involves real life issues, and it is also a love story written in the stars!

Synopsis:

Working in Hollywood meant Jessica Dawson was used to lying. As an assistant to one of the biggest agents in town, biting her tongue and spewing out sugarcoated untruths were an almost daily occurrence. But fabricating alternate realities never spilled into her personal life, until three months ago when she told the biggest lie of all.

While her dear gran lay on her deathbed, Jessica mentioned she’d met her soul mate. It had been Gran’s last wish to see all her grandkids settled down before she went to see Jesus. And as the only one still single, Jessica didn’t have the heart to disappoint her.

No one expected Gran to make a miraculous recovery.

Now, Gran was expecting to meet Jessica’s perfect man at her cousin’s wedding, which meant she needed to find a perfect man fast. Hiring a professional was the only solution.

Enter Dave Larsson, younger brother to one of Hollywood’s elite.

Sexy, funny and just as smoldering hot as his super-famous sibling—he had talent and charm to spare. But most importantly, he was affordable and available.

All she needed to do was haul Dave home, have him meet Gran and the family, then shortly after the wedding, “break up” with him.

It was either that, or admit to her #1 Lie.

Only thing she didn’t plan on was the bigger lie she would need to tell herself when it was time to let him go.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

 

T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia.

With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap. Her lack of “plan” has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history. She’d tell you all about it, but the statute of limitations hasn’t expired yet. But all those crazy twists and turns have led her to a career she loves—writing romantic comedy.

When she isn’t filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she’s living her own reality show in the ‘burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child—Woodley.

She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.

MHOnlyHimBookWrapFB

Sometimes your first love deserves a second chance…

He was my first crush, my first kiss, my first everything.

But I’m not a lovesick teenager anymore, and I’d never let that cocky troublemaker break my heart again.

So when he shows up out of the blue asking me to have dinner with him “for old time’s sake,” I say I will. After all, it’s been twelve years, and I’m stronger and smarter than I was back then.

Except…he still does something to me. He’s got those eyes that make me weak, those hands that drive me wild, and a body I can’t resist—especially once I see the tattoos. It doesn’t take long for our trip down memory lane to go from sweet to sizzling.

We’re just as good together as we were back then—better, even—and I’m willing to give the only man I’ve ever loved another chance.

But he’s got to tell me the truth.

* * *

All I wanted was to see her again. Tell her I’m sorry. Make her smile.

Okay, that’s a lie. I wanted to do more than that—a lot more. But I know she’s better off without me, and I promised myself I’d behave.

Except I’ve never been much good at keeping promises…or my hands to myself when I’m around her.

I can make her laugh, I can make her cry, I can make her body surrender to mine in ways that neither of us could have imagined back then. I can—and I do—love her more than she’ll ever know.

But I can’t tell her the real reason why I’m here.

And I can’t stay.

Jock Row by Sara Ney Release Blitz

 

 

 

Scarlett is always the sensible one: The sober driver. The planner. The one holding your hair back while you’re worshiping the porcelain gods.

Week-after-week, she visits Jock Row with her friends—the universities hottest party scene and breeding ground for student athletes. And if keeping her friends out of trouble, and guys out of their pants, was a sport, she’d be the star athlete.

Being a well known jock-blocker gets her noticed for all the wrong reasons; just like that, she’s banned from Jock Row. NO GUY WANTS A GIRL AROUND WHO KEEPS THEIR JOCK FRIENDS FROM GETTING LAID.

“Rowdy” Wade is the hot shot short-stop for the university’s baseball team—and the unlucky bastard who drew the short straw: keep little Miss Goody Two-Shoes out of the Baseball House.

But week-after-week Scarlett returns, determined to get inside.

ADD TO GOODREADS

 

 

Jesus Christ, she has a dimple in her damn cheek.

I’m a sucker for those.

She shoots me a tentative smile, ass parked on the stoop, back propped against the wooden siding of the house.

It’s obvious that she’s blushing by the way she ducks her head, glancing down at the floor, the soft glow from the two busted lamps illuminate the crown of her head.

The porch lights are busted and rusty, needing their bulbs changed, one flickering—the other just about to burn out. It makes the entire place look like a goddamn Halloween fun-house, casting a weird glow on the girl’s smooth, pale skin.

And her pretty dimple.

Stop staring at it, dipshit.

I cast my glance at her outfit, doing my best to analyze her under the dim lights; she must have been sweaty inside the house; I got a good look at her before convincing her to follow me, but still study her as if seeing her for the first time.

Both of her boots are tucked under her legs, and she sits, cross-legged on the ground. Blows out a frustrated puff of air that translates into a billowing stream of steam.

“So.” She wraps her puffed sleeved arms around her knees, hugging them tight. Shivers. “Now what?”

Her prim ponytail is jaunty, bobbing when she tilts her head to gaze over at me.

“Now I babysit you.”

“Lovely. We can bond.”

I position my large body against the railing, giving it a gentle shake to make sure it’s sturdy before supporting all my weight on it. It’s solid and secure and is going to get real uncomfortable real fucking fast if I have to stand here all night.

The girl raises her brows at me. They appear black in this light; full and arched expertly. “Have you babysat anyone before?”

“No one I managed to keep alive,” I joke. “A few cousins my parents forced me to watch a few times; never would feed them but would occasionally throw out a dog bone so they wouldn’t get hungry.”

She smiles, dimple denting the smooth right side of her face. “Is that what you have planned for me?”

I raise my empty hands. “I’m fresh out of Scooby snacks. Guess we’ll both have to starve.”

“Sorry you have to sit out here.”

“Really?” I sound hopeful. “No one is forcing you to sit out here.”

Her light laugh is quiet. “Fine. I guess I’m not that sorry.” She bites down on her lower lip. “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t enjoying your discomfort—just a little bit.”

“Gee, thanks.”

Because she’s always had his heart—but if he loses her, his world will come apart.
