Series: Rock Star Hearts #1
Author: Amity Cross
Genre: Rock Star Romance
Release Date: August 29, 2018

 

Blurb
Sebastian Hale is missing in action.
As lead singer of the hot as sin rock band, Beneath, he’s got the world at his feet but he wants out. He’s done with the empty relationships, the one-night stands, and the consequences of his wild celebrity lifestyle. Unable to break free of the darkness taking over his soul, he disappears, sending the media, his record label and the world into a frenzy.

When small town girl, Juniper Rowe, meets a sexy, brooding guy on an isolated beach in the middle of nowhere, she’s shocked to learn he’s missing bad boy rock star Sebastian Hale.

Drawn together by fate, they find solace in their shared darkness, unable to resist the passion their tortured souls ignite in one another.
But when the reality of Sebastian’s life is revealed, Juniper learns a hard lesson.
Rock ’n’ roll will save your life…but the fame will kill you.



Christie’s Review 
5 STARS

I have to say Amity Cross had me hook, line, and sinker in the beginning pages of this book. She has a way of writing a setting that puts you right there, and I felt like I was someone on that lonely beach watching the first meeting between Sebastian and Juniper!
Juniper has lived her entire life in her small town. She is stuck. She is trying to save her struggling book store. It is one of the last things she has of her mother’s. She is determined to make it work. She never really thought about leaving until Sebastian.
Sebastian is running from the life he has as a rock star. As he says, “Rock ‘n’ roll will save your life….but fame will kill you.” He has had just about as much as he can handle of the fame. He doesn’t know who to trust anymore, and he needed a safe place to regroup and consider what his future is.
I liked Juniper’s character. Yeah, she could be cynical at times, but she was also very down to earth. She didn’t even know who Sebastian was until her best friend told her. That doesn’t really change anything. She just sees him as an interesting, sexy guy. She knows their relationship probably will end when he leaves, because everybody leaves. See….her cynicism!
Sebastian is a bit cynical as well but that is because of his fame and all it brought with it…some good and some really bad. Juniper is a breath of fresh air for him. She doesn’t care about the fame. In fact, it’s his fame that may very well derail their relationship before it gets off the ground.
I love a good rock star romance, and this was a good one. The characters were well fleshed out, and I’m still learning more about them. The writing itself was fantastic, and oh my I loved the setting. As I wrote earlier, Cross put me right there with the characters. I could vividly see the places in my mind. Thankfully, this is only the beginning for Sebastian and Juniper, so I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.

Evie’s Little Black Book

Hannah Pearl 

Evies Little Black Book

 

Synopsis

Is hunting down every man you’ve kissed the answer to finding Mr Right?


When Evie is invited to the wedding of the guy she’d fancied throughout her teens, it’s the final straw. What’s wrong with her and why can’t she keep a man? 

In between consoling herself with ice cream and chocolate, and sobbing her heart out to her cousin Chamaine, Evie has a brainwave – and it all centres around her ‘little black book’ (well, more floral patterned notebook really) – which contains the details of every man she’s ever kissed or dated. Perhaps the cure for her disastrous love life has been nestled within its pages all along … 


Does Evie’s little black book really hold the answers, or will she learn that exes are exes for a reason? 

 



Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

What a clever and charming story! I loved the concept. Evie has had enough after being invited to the wedding of a crush she had in her teens. On top of that, she has broken up with an ex not too terribly long ago. She can’t understand what she keeps doing wrong, and why she can’t find lasting happiness. So, she decides to go to her little black book which is really a floral notebook that is filled with every crush and kiss she had since she was fifteen. Oh my, what a journey that was!!!

Her quest will lead her to find happiness in a place she was never expecting it. Who knew her little black book would lead her to Jake, who is a swoon worthy hero. He is loyal to those he loves. Evie is funny, intelligent, and caring. Readers will see how much she cares about each others as the book progresses.

I loved the romance and the characters. I loved the passages that she and Charmaine shared in from her book. They were quite funny! As much as I loved all these things, my favorite part was watching Evie discover who she really was! Great, heartwarming book!!!

About TEN REASONS TO STAY

One day a week—Thursdays—my husband and I could do whatever or whomever we pleased.

Protection was non-negotiable.

And no matter what, we had to be home by midnight.

Jack was the one who wanted an open marriage, but we were supposed to keep things simple. No strings. No commitments. It seemed so easy…until it wasn’t.

Devilishly handsome Cole Blackwater was only supposed to be a fling, but everything about him made me feel alive. Wanted. Seen. When I realized he was my husband’s boss, I should have broken things off right then…but I didn’t.

One day a week, I could pretend that I was his and he was mine…until Cole wanted more.

But how could I decide between the man I’d promised to love, honor, and cherish, and the man who tempted me to break every single vow I’d made?

Dating Down

Dating Down

by Diane Louise 

 

Synopsis

Suddenly single and unexpectedly poor, it’s definitely safe to say that Alexis Harland is not living the life of her dreams.

Although she’s determined that nothing, not one little thing, will stop her return from poverty. Well, almost nothing. Her pride might get in the way a little. And possibly her family. And maybe the fact that she hasn’t got a clue where to start.

Many years ago, Alexis was swept away from life on a caravan park and introduced to a world of riches and glamour. All thanks to a wealthy man who married her, reinvented her… and then dumped her for a younger model at the first sign of cellulite.

Now Alexis is stranded, struggling to keep her head above water and her history a secret from her highbrow friends.

As if that isn’t enough for a woman to deal with, one night she comes home to find a sexy man has landed, quite literally, on her doorstep. A man hell-bent on testing everything Alexis thinks she knows about true happiness.

Caught between the life she knows and her blossoming love, can Alexis afford to let go of her unwavering pride, kiss her social status goodbye and accept that stepping back to square one is sometimes a huge leap forward?



Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Dating Down by Diane Louise is not only a great romantic comedy, but it is about second chances and finding happiness where you least expected it.

Alexis has found herself not only single but poor when her rich husband leaves her for a younger woman. She isn’t sure how she is supposed to start over after being the dutiful wife who rubbed elbows with the higher classes of society. I have to be honest and say I really was not a fan of her in the beginning. She came across as snobby, thinking she was better than others who had less money than she did. Apparently, she made her mind up when she was younger that she wasn’t going to live in poverty like her parents did. She has worked hard to keep that part of her life secret, but that gets harder when her younger, wilder sister, Candy, shows up drunk on her front porch, along with the taxi driver that wanted to make sure she was safe. From that moment on, her life changes drastically, and she will learn who really loves her. She will also learn a lesson in what really matters in life, and she will have to decide which is more important: the things you have or the way you choose to live your life.

Man, oh man, how I loved Bob, the sweet taxi driver who showed up on her doorstep with her sister. He is all that is good in the world, and I kept praying Alexis would realize it! He definitely has patience with her. He was a driving force in changing how I felt about Alexis. I saw a different side to her, and I liked the person she became by the end of the book.

I can’t leave this review without talking about Candy, Alexis’s sister. It is very rare that a secondary character is full of so much color! I just loved her!!! She owned every scene she was in, and I’m so glad she will be getting her own book.

This is the very first book I have read by Diane Louise, but it definitely won’t be my last!!!!

Diane Louise is a dairy farmer’s wife from the UK who doesn’t know a Holstein from a Hereford.

But what she does know is how to write a funny story. Three years ago she tried to write steamy romance and sucked at it. Honestly, her stiff upper lip made her heroes more wet blankets than wet dreams. With a steely determination to avoid milking the cows, she turned her hand to Romantic Comedy and a star was born. Well, in her mind at least.

Fancy getting to know the woman behind the words?

She hangs around Facebook daily, desperately avoiding housework, and loves nothing more than chatting to fellow lovers of Romantic Comedy over at Di’s Romantic Comedy Club. Or, if you don’t do Facebook, that’s cool, because she also sends a monthly email to her readers, making sure they never miss a new release and sharing behind the scene info about her books.

I look up at Cam and meet his eyes, brimming with secrets. I need answers, and I need them now.

 

No more secrets, Cam.

 

“What’s going on?”

 

The man in my arms doesn’t answer with his words. Instead, he takes hold of the edge of my towel and pulls it from my body. I gasp at the sensation of our skin pressing intimately together. I brace myself against his chiseled arms, digging my fingers into his biceps for purchase.

 

He isn’t done. He lifts his hands, one to my hip, one to my cheek. His thumb draws a small circle on my exposed hip bone. With the side of his knuckle, he traces the outline of my lower lip. I stay very, very still so he won’t notice the slight shudder racing down my spine.

 

“I can’t tell you,” he says so softly that it breaks my heart.

 

“Yes, you can.” I barely recognize my own voice. Cam’s eyes, dark and hurting, are locked on my lips. I want to ease that pain.

 

And I think I know how.

 

I lean in closer, pulling myself up to his level with my hands on his chest. Our breaths mingle and everything is warm, the air between us aflame.

 

“You’re killing me.” These are the words that fall from Cam’s lips before they meet mine.

 

God.

 

My lips are locked against his in the softest of kisses. I catch his lower lip with my own, pressing every ounce of my feelings into him. Every thank you for being there for me. Every you’re perfect for being exactly what I need.

 

Can he feel how much I care for him?

 

He’s still for a whole Mississippi second—a second too long for me to bear.

 

Oh God. What have I done?

 

But the moment I pull away, Cam leans in. His hands are on my face, holding my lips against his. He tilts my head, digs his fingers into my hair, and opens his mouth to mine.

 

“Natalie . . .”

 

The sound of my name slipping so lustfully from the back of his throat sends a jolt all the way down. All the way down.

 

I pull myself even higher on my toes, clinging to him with my arms around his neck. He returns the favor, wrapping his arms around my waist and pulling me tight against him. Our mouths are magnetic, unable to separate, unwilling to stop.

 

My God. I’m kissing Cam.

 

I’m kissing my best friend.

 

I’m kissing him and I can’t stop.

 

I dart my tongue between his lips, caressing the underside of his upper lip. He growls, maddened by my bold move. His fingers blaze fiery trails down my neck and shoulders. His hands explore me, memorizing the slope of my back and the curve of my hips. Each touch is so soft, yet so electric.

 

Soon it’s all frantic kisses and eager moans that I’m pretty sure are coming from me. I press into his shoulders, leaving handprints on his chest. My fingers draw lines down his abdomen, then finally trace along the bulge beneath his towel.

 

Cam jerks back, his eyes full of questions.

 

But there’s no more time for questions. We’ve wasted far too much of it.
