Faking It by K. Bromberg

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing Date: January 8th, 2019

Cover Designer: Helen Williams

Photographer: Alexis Salgues

Model: Jeremy Baudoin

Zane Phillips mistook me for his dog walker. It shouldn’t surprise me that the man with a suit more expensive than my rent would assume that I was there to serve him. The positive? I put him in his place. The negative? I missed my job interview because of it. Now I find out he’s a rich Australian entrepreneur, and he wants to make up for tanking my interview.

Yes, he’s impossibly hot – but he’s also an arrogant jackass – so…no thanks.

But after a little white lie I tell spirals out of control, I’m somehow offered the chance to play Zane’s girlfriend to help promote his new dating website – and the best part? He can’t say no because he’ll get caught in his lie, too.

Little did I know this would entail sharing a tour bus with him for the next few months. The fact that the bus has just one bed isn’t the most ideal of circumstances, but this spokesperson gig might be the kick in the pants my career needs, so why not take a chance?

Famous last words.

Now I’m crisscrossing the country – and sharing that bed – with the one guy I can’t stand. And even worse, my traitorous body is wondering at every turn what it’s like to be down under the gorgeous Australian. But as the miles unfurl, so does our passion…and if I’m not careful, I might end up believing that fairy tales really do come true.

About K. Bromberg

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow.

Since publishing her first book in 2013, Kristy has sold over one million copies of her books across sixteen different countries and has landed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists over twenty-five times. Her Driven trilogy (Driven, Fueled, and Crashed) is currently being adapted for film by Passionflix with the first movie slated to release in the summer of 2018.

She is currently working on her Everyday Heroes trilogy. This series consists of three complete standalone novels—Cuffed, Combust, and Cockpit (late spring 2018)—and is about three brothers who are emergency responders, the jobs that call to them, and the women who challenge them.

Sleeping Through War by Jackie Carreira Blog Tour with Review

9 Sep

Sleeping Through War

Sleeping Through War

by Jackie Carreira

Synopsis

It is May 1968. Students are rioting, civil rights are being fought and died for, nuclear bombs are being tested, and war is raging in Vietnam. For three ordinary women in Lisbon, London and Washington life must go on as usual. For them, just to survive is an act of courage. How much has really changed in 50 years?

 



Christie’s Review

 4.5 STARS

Sleeping Through War is one of those books that I can’t just run to my computer and write a review for. It’s a book I have to ponder because it’s very thought provoking, and it’s really makes you think.

It’s set in May of 1968. It’s a very volatile time around the world, and the author includes chapters of real-life events that are happening in the world while the story revolves around three very different women. Each woman deals with social issues at the time: women’s issues, racial issues, and the war in Vietnam.

Readers first meet Amalia who lives in Portugal. She is a widow as well as a single mother, and sewing doesn’t pay the bills. She had to make choices that sadly many women have had to make throughout history to provide a better home for her child. She epitomizes what true love is for a child…giving up parts of herself to provide him with a safe environment. Many would view her as weak, but I didn’t. She was a strong woman who was doing the best she could do with the choices she was given.

Rose lives in London. She moved from St. Lucia to be a nurse in a nursing home, caring for older, white patients. She is faced with prejudice every day based on her skin color. She always manages to rise above it, showing kindness to those around her. Some others in her situation may not have the patience or kindness in their hearts like she did. Again, some would see that as a weakness. Like with Amalia, I saw it as strength. Instead of bitterness, she chose to find her own happiness, not dependent on others.

Mrs. Johnson is a mother who has a son serving in Vietnam. Unlike with Amalie and Rose, much of what we learn of her life is in the form of letters written to her son. She tells him about life at home, but she also voices her uncertainty of why her son and so many other young men were in that war. She was married, but she showed a strength her husband didn’t have.

The book was emotional, and at times, it was very sad. I thought it was well-written and written with a lot of detail. I felt like I was in Portugal with Amalie, in London with Rose in her small apartment, and with Mrs. Johnson in Washington. Each woman was from a very different background, yet they each illustrated a strength in situations they found themselves in and the way each of them chose to face them.

“Beware the sign of the vampire blood,” said the fortune teller. “It brings madness and turmoil.”

Lily Gayle knows what that means, but, for the life of her, can’t figure out how the fortune teller does. A quick road trip with Dixie. An unplanned stop at a roadside park. And, an hour later a dead body. Lily Gayle, Dixie and Miss Edna find themselves knee deep in another homicide investigation when the local vet assistant turns up dead behind an outbuilding at the farmers market.

Lily Gayle believes the words of the fortune teller will have a major impact on the investigation but can’t bring herself to tell the other ladies. To reveal what she believes the words mean might bring trouble to another old friend. And would betray a trust. Only Ben knows and he, as usual, advises Lily Gayle to stay out of his investigation – which she isn’t about to do.

When the secret is revealed, the townspeople go mad and the fortune tellers words come true. Can Lily Gayle, Dixie and Miss Edna solve the murder before more people are harmed?


Character Guest Post: 

Hello, everyone. Thanks for stopping by. Dr. Vlad Templeton here. I spent several years of my childhood here in Mercy, Mississippi before I moved away. Back then, Lily Gayle Lambert, Dixie Newsom and Ben Carter were my only friends. I didn’t get out much back then.

I came back here because I was looking for a small town where several generations of people still lived and the population hadn’t changed much since the early days of the county to conduct a state funded sleep study.

I’m looking for a genetic connection to sleep apnea. It could be groundbreaking in the scientific community.

Right before I could get my study up and running, the bank president turned up dead on my doorstep. Well – actually my front porch. What a way to start a business? Right?

My old friends Lily Gayle, Dixie and Ben solved that mystery before it could completely upset my study. I think Ben would have preferred to solve it without the help of the ladies. He’s the county sheriff after all. But Lily Gayle is his cousin and she always was pretty headstrong. What’s a guy to do?

So, now, I’ve got my study up and running and I’m getting some very interesting results when I find out another one of the men in town who’d signed up for the study has been found dead at the farmers market down the road.

And, of course, Lily Gayle and Dixie are the ones who were on the scene of the discovery. Along with Miss Edna. Then, Lily Gayle comes up to the house and tells me she’s met a fortune-teller on the road in the middle of nowhere who told her to beware the vampire blood.

That give me pause. The only people around here who know what that means besides me are Lily Gayle and Ben. Who is the fortune-teller and what’s she up to?

Y’all check out Death said the Gypsy Queen to find out.
