How To Quit Your Crush by Amy Fellner Dominy Blog Tour with Review

HOW TO QUIT YOUR CRUSH

by Amy Fellner Dominy
Publication Date: May 4, 2020
Genres: Entangled: Crush, Teen Romance, Young Adult, Contemporary, Enemies to Lovers, Opposites Attract, Romance

SYNOPSIS

Mai Senn knows Anthony Adams is no good for her – no matter how hard she might crush on him. She’s valedictorian; he’s a surf bum. She’s got plans, he’s got his art. Complete opposites in every way. Vinegar and baking soda, they once joked. A chemical reaction that bubbled.

Yeah, they bubbled. Maybe still do.

Good thing Anthony’s got the perfect plan: two weeks to prove just how not good they are together. Whoever can come up with the worst date—something the other will seriously hate, proving how incompatible they truly are—wins.

Like taking a snake-phobe to the Reptile House at the zoo (his idea).

Or a cooking class where they don’t even get to eat the food (her idea).

It’s all about the competition, and it’s meant to help them finally crush their crushes. But it wasn’t supposed to be so hot. Or so fun. And when Mai’s future becomes at stake, will she be able to do the right thing and quit Anthony forever?




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Mai and Anthony’s story is an opposites attract romance. On the surface, these two make absolutely no sense, but for some reason they feel a pull toward one another in Amy Fellner Dominy’s teen/coming of age novel!!!

Mai knows Anthony is exactly what she doesn’t need! But, tell that to her traitorous heart!!!! If only she could listen to her mind. She is the valedictorian of her class, and she has plans to go away to college and take the world by storm with her intellect. Anthony doesn’t really have any plans…maybe travel and surf. He doesn’t need academics; he has his art. He certainly doesn’t need an uptight girl like Mai to bring undue stress to his easy-going life. 

Neither one of them can keep their mind off the other, so they brilliantly come up with the idea of terrible dates to get over whatever feelings they have for one another. Both of them are so sure it will work since they are such polar opposites. Instead, the dates aren’t so bad. In fact, they are pretty good. They begin to learn not only more about each other but about themselves. 

This is a really sweet read with some spicy, but not over the top, moments. It reminded me of what it’s like to fall in love for the first time, giving me butterflies in my stomach. Amy Fellner Dominy gave her readers a great coming of age novel that reminds you of what it was like when you were on the verge of becoming an adult and the world was yours for the taking!!!!

BLURB

 

I didn’t know I would fall for him.

He is, after all, my enemy.

I planned to break his heart, not realizing it was already in pieces.

He’s an asshole, you see.

He runs this town.

And he thinks he can run me too.

Well, he can think again.

Most women don’t fall at the feet of a man like him. No, they grovel.

But I hate him too much to ever give him the satisfaction.

Regardless of his too beautiful face and commanding presence, I refuse to let him win.

Because if I lose, I fall.

And I might never get back up.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Kisses and Warfare is a steamy 5-STAR read for me!!! I knew when I finished Kisses and Lies and discovered the next book would be about Rochelle’s sister, Kat, and Marcus’s brother, Blaze, that it was going to be out of this world, T.L. Smith blew my expectations out of the water!

Kat and Blaze are electric together! Kat is the complete opposite of her sister. She is full of fire, and she means to bring Blaze to his knees, but what she didn’t expect was to fall for him. Blaze is the perfect epitome of a strong guy, but Kat seems to bring out his softer side even when he fights it. He definitely has no intention of falling for her, but he has no idea who the woman is he is dealing with. 

While the book has plenty of steam, there are some tender moments as well. Kat is strong and determined, but she has a softer side to her, especially in the relationship she has with her sweet daughter and her sister! She believes in second chances, and I really saw that when her daughter’s father entered the picture again. 

I enjoyed catching up with Rochelle and Marcus again. I liked seeing Blaze’s relationship with Rochelle change…he isn’t one of her biggest fans. The protection he feels for Kat was soooo sexy. Kat and her daughter tend to bring out the teddy bear in him!!!! I loved seeing those two sides to him!!!!

T.L. Smith is a fairly new writer to me. The way she writes MC Romance is incredible. Parts are dark as it is an MC Romance, but she manages to make her stories emotional. Her characters are so complicated, and she slowly reveals layers to them I wasn’t even expecting. I am so fortunate that I discovered this wonderful writer.

New Review: Coach Me by Shanora Williams

 

Release Date: May 14
 
When I met Amber Lakes, I had no idea that she’d become a shining star in my dark, miserable life.
 
Her smile was never supposed to warm my heart, and the sight of her tears was never supposed to make me want to hunt down the person who’d caused them.
 
We were never supposed to touch, or kiss, or do so many dirty things on campus that I knew could jeopardize my career…
 
None of it was supposed to happen because she’s the student—my athlete—and I’m her college track coach.
 
I could lose everything by being with her, but I’ve fallen too damn hard, and despite how big the risks are, it’s too late to turn back now. 



 

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Coach Me by Shanora Williams was an emotional and sexy read!!!! It was one of those books that I was able to finish in one sitting. 

Amber and Joaquin were a dynamic couple, although on the surface, I wouldn’t put them together. Two glaring reasons…he is older than her, and he is her track coach. Thank goodness, I was completely wrong. The two of them actually have quite a great deal in common. Amber comes to an Ivy League school on scholarship as the phenom track star, but what she gets is the opposite of star treatment. She gets ignorance, intolerance, and meanness because she is the only black girl on the track team. Joaquin has dealt with the same issues growing up and as an adult as well. This cements the bond they form.

Both of them are determined and strong. In the beginning, Amber is shocked and her spirit is broken down because of the treatment she receives from some of her teammates, but not all of them. She actually meets some pretty amazing girls Joaquin is instrumental in getting her to stay. The way in which this young girl deals with it is mature beyond her years. She is a class act. 

Their love story is full of angst, major steam, but is also really sweet. Joaquin was the best. He always put Amber’s needs first, and he was just so unselfish. Despite their age differences and the forbidden romance, the two worked together perfectly. 

I am a first time reader to Shanora Williams, and I’m IMPRESSED!!! She definitely knows how to write a wonderfully, addictive story. I liked the fact that this wasn’t just a romance. The story of discrimination is as old as time, but it is still relevant today, and she addresses with such wonderful emotion, sensitivity, and class. I can’t wait to read more from this very talented writer!!!!

Along Came a Soldie

Along Came A Soldier

by Brenda Davies

About the Book:

When murder stalks St. Merryn, no secrets are safe…

A forbidden romance…

Set in 1820 Cornwall, Charity Perrow lives a sheltered life in the village of St. Merryn. When she meets and falls for Jethro Ennor, they soon learn their families are bitter enemies, and Charity finds herself torn between remaining loyal to her family and giving into her growing desire for a man they hate.

A village with hidden secrets…

A battle-scarred redcoat is lurking In Greenoak Woods. Struggling to keep his grip on sanity, he’s come home to settle the score with those responsible for the heavy burden he’s been carrying all these years.

An innocent man accused…

When a villager is murdered, the suspicion falls on Jethro. Now Charity must risk everything, including being disowned by her family, to prove his innocence and save him from the gallows.

But as Charity hunts for the truth, she begins to uncover secrets over a decade old—secrets that will change everything.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

 

Along Came a Soldier by Brenda Davies has all the ingredients that make a book one of my favorites…romance, history, and mystery!!! I was completely enthralled from the very beginning!

Charity and Jethro meet by chance, not knowing their families have been enemies. However, when the heart is involved, things like old grudges don’t matter too much. Charity is a woman caught in a time where women’s opinions didn’t matter, and she was to obey her family. So, she is torn, but when Jethro is accused of murder, the decision is made for her. There is no way she can let him go to prison for a murder he didn’t commit. 

Charity’s brother, Joe, the town bonesetter, Grace, and her friend, William, join together to prove his innocence. They will discover that their small village is full of deadly secrets. This crew of sleuths could have their very own series!!! 

I know when I have discovered a talented writer when she makes me actually have some pity for the person who is supposed to be the evil one. I would never condone what he did, but I could understand what put him in that state of mind. 

The forbidden romance was a part of the novel, but not the entirety of it. However, it is a romance that is both sweet and swoonworthy. Charity shows Jethro that she loves him for the person he is on the inside, not the perception of others. He shows her how to begin living her own life just for her which was not the norm in the 1820s.

If you are looking for a book that crosses several genres with elements of suspense, mystery, and some paranormal aspects, you can’t go wrong with this book. Brenda Davies blends all of them perfectly to make a fantastic read!!!!!

A Secret For a Secret by Helena Hunting Blog Tour with Excerpt

“Helena Hunting delivers a smart, funny, emotional story that grabs you from page one.”

— Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal bestselling author

A Secret for a Secret, an all-new must read forbidden standalone romance that is sure to have you swooning from the start by New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting, is available now!

Hunting-A Secret for a Secret-28672-PB-FT.jpg

From New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting comes a new romance about trading secrets, breaking the rules, and playing for keeps.

My name is Ryan Kingston, and I’m a rule follower. I’ve never been in a fistfight. I always obey the speed limit. I don’t get drunk, and I definitely don’t pick up random women at bars.

Except the night I found out that my whole existence has been a lie.

I got drunk. And picked up a stranger.

Her name was Queenie, and she was everything I’m not: reckless, impulsive, and chaotic. We did shots and traded secrets. And ended up naked at my place.

She left me a thank-you note in the morning and her panties as a parting gift. But no way to contact her.

Six weeks later I’m sitting in the first official team meeting of the season, and there she is. I neglected to mention that I’m the goalie for Seattle’s NHL team.

And Queenie? Turns out she’s the general manager’s daughter.

Excerpt:

“You think our GM got himself an assistant?”

I follow his gaze to the front of the room. Standing at the desk with her back to us, arranging papers, is a woman with wavy chestnut hair that nearly reaches her waist. “Maybe an intern?”

She’s wearing a navy dress that conforms to her very feminine form. I trace the dip of her waist and the curve of her hip, skimming down to where the hem of her dress hits the bend in her knee. Her calves are bare, athletic, and toned, and her heels boast a little bow on the back. Classy, yet sexy. “Possibly.”

“I hope the eye candy is gonna be permanent,” someone at the table behind us says, loud enough for everyone close by to hear.

“I wouldn’t mind if she helped me with my jockstrap,” one of the other guys chimes in, eliciting a loud chuckle from the rest of the table.

I glance over my shoulder and pin them with an unimpressed glare. I recognize Foley from Tampa, and Dickerson is an LA trade. They’re notorious womanizers. “Watch your mouth and have some respect. That’s someone’s daughter.”

“Take it easy, King. It’s not like we’d actually say that to her face,” Foley says.

I don’t have an opportunity to reprimand him further because the GM, Jake Masterson, and our head coach, Alex Waters, enter the room through the side door. The GM crosses over to the woman, whose back is still turned to us, and he gives her a smile that seems . . . overly warm. He leans in and squeezes her shoulder as he says something with his mouth close to her ear.

“Maybe she’s not his assistant. Maybe she’s his new girlfriend, ’cause that looks pretty damn friendly to me.” Bishop jams a sausage link into his mouth.

“Maybe,” I agree.

She turns slightly, giving me a glimpse of her profile. Her cheeks are flushed pink. I blink a couple of times, because she seems incredibly familiar.

“I think I know her,” I mumble, more to myself than to Bishop.

“Not as well as our GM does, by the look of things.”

It hits me like a puck in the chest without pads on. I do know her. Queenie. My one-night stand who bailed the next morning and left a Post-it and panties hanging from my doorknob. Destroyed panties. “Oh God.”

Did I sleep with the GM’s girlfriend? Memories come barreling into my brain, and I want to sink into the floor. My behavior that night was highly atypical. Everything about that night was. I chalked it up to the alcohol, the family drama, and the fact that she seemed to be a very eager and willing participant in our adventures. Do not think about the things you did to her.

I’d be lying if I said I haven’t thought about Queenie and our night together. I’ve even considered driving by the bar where we met, but I don’t know if she’s likely to show up there. And it’s not as if I can ask the bartender about her without looking like a creep. Besides, if she wanted me to have her number, she would’ve left it.

“Are you okay? You look like you’re about to hurl,” Bishop asks.

I cover my mouth with my palm, not because I’m going to be ill but to hide the fact that it’s hanging open and I can’t seem to close it. Although my stomach is starting to do those awful somersaults that will soon turn into full-on nausea. The kind I used to get when I’d first hit the ice for a game.

This is bad. Really bad. I’ve never had a one-night stand before. I’ve always been in committed relationships, and I prefer to get to know my bed partners before they actually get into bed with me. Teen pregnancy was pretty common where I grew up in Tennessee, because there wasn’t much else to do apart from playing sports or getting into trouble with drugs and alcohol—my brother, Gerald, went the latter route. I obviously fit into the sports category. By the time I became a teenager, my parents had finally learned their lesson. It was drilled into me to never become that kind of statistic, or to turn my girlfriend into a mom before she was ready to take on more than senior-level algebra.

Ironic how my actual mother would’ve been one of those girls had my grandparents not made the choices they had.

“King?” Bishop nudges me. “You’re staring, man.”

Jake whistles with his fingers, causing the woman beside him to cringe but then quickly school her expression into an uncertain smile. “Who’s ready for a new season?”

He’s rewarded with a chorus of cheers from the players. Waters stands off to the side, clapping enthusiastically. He generally runs all team meetings, but Jake is a hands-on GM, so he always manages first meeting intros before he hands it over to our coach.

Jake waits for everyone to settle down and take their seats before he continues. “Gentlemen, I’d like to introduce you to my personal assistant, Queenie.” He throws his arm over her shoulder and pulls her into his side.

A hot spike of anger rushes down my spine—it’s a foreign feeling. I’m usually very level headed. But not right now. It’s obvious by the way Jake and Queenie interact that there’s a relationship there. Is she a cheater? Did she make me one? There’s a definite age gap. He’s young for a GM, but he’s in his forties, and I’m pretty sure she’s in her mid twenties.

“She also happens to be my daughter, so don’t get any ideas, boys.” He somehow manages to wink and glare at the same time.

And it just went from bad to worse.

My one-night stand isn’t my GM’s girlfriend; she’s his daughter.

Winning Hollywood’s Goodest Girl by Max Monroe Cover Reveal with Pre-Order Links

WHGG - CR banner

A baby on the way first.
Then love and marriage?
It’s complicated on its best day.

Winning Hollywood’s Goodest Girl, an all-new fun and flirty romantic comedy by New York Times bestselling author Max Monrore is releasing June 11th, and we have the irresistible cover!

WHGG Official cover 6x9

Raquel and Harrison sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.
First comes love.
Then comes marriage.
Then comes a baby in the baby carriage.

That’s how her brother used to sing it when we were kids—a simple ploy to get under my skin and make me stick my fist in his face—but man oh man, did he get the order wrong.

One night of “kissing” in New York catapulted us straight to the pregnancy portion of the song—surprise!—and now I have to figure out how to carry out the whole melody in reverse.

A baby on the way first.
Then love and marriage?
It’s complicated on its best day.

But our situation is far more problematic than just a simple twist of nursery rhyme lyrics. Before our night together, Raquel Weaver was the best-known good girl in Hollywood—a twenty-nine-year-old sexpot virgin whom the world adored and watched like a hawk.

Obviously, the consequences of that kind of reputation don’t just go away. Add in pregnancy hormones, the media, a fake fiancé, and a selfish manager, and you have the short list of my problems.

As a thirty-four-year-old, successful CFO of a multibillion-dollar media conglomerate, I thought I would be able to handle anything show business could throw my way, but I’m starting to think I might be in over my head.

Good thing I’m all in.
Winning Hollywood’s goodest girl is going to take everything I’ve got.

New Review: Like You Care: A Dark High School Bully Romance (Devilbend Dynasty Book 1) by Kaydence Snow

🔥🔥 NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Like You Care by Kaydence Snow is LIVE and FREE in Kindle Unlimited!

“Gripping is an understatement when it comes to this book. From start to finish this book is an emotional roller coaster that keeps you captivated. I ugly cried, I raged, I cheered so freaking hard for both Mena and Turner it’s not even funny.” ~Red Hatter Book Blog

I am nothing.

Nobody.

I’d rather be invisible than deal with what happens on the days my classmates decide to acknowledge my existence.

But then Turner Hall shows up – all cool confidence and witty banter – and all of a sudden I don’t want to be invisible any more. I want to be seen.

I want him to see me.

I’m not who he thinks I am but I’m starting to suspect he’s not all he says he is either.

Just my luck that he starts to make friends with my tormentors. How am I supposed to tell him who I really am? How am I supposed to show him my true face? What if the boy I’m falling in love with decides I’m nothing too?




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Forgive the pun, but this romance packs quite the punch! I finished it in one sitting! Kaydence Snow took my heart and my mind captive!!!!

I have recently begun reading some of the dark/ bully romances, but this one is different from the others I have read. Mena is the victim of bullying that has been ongoing for years. However, her love interest, Turner, is not one of her tormentors. 

Mena was born with a birthmark, and her fellow students just use that as one excuse to torment her. First it began with her being invisible, but it progressed into something more dangerous and sinister. At times, it was so hard to read about Mena’s experiences. I was on the verge of tears; I raged at those who mistreated her so badly! My heart broke for her. However, she did have such a great network of support as well, her cousins, her parents, and her small circle of friends! 

I enjoyed the mystery surrounding the mystery of Turner as well. It added an element of intrigue of mystery and suspense to an already good book! As Mena has secrets, so does Turner, and his secrets connect everything happening within the plot. 

In addition to great characters, I also loved the storyline. Snow really knows how to use emotions to connect her readers to the story and the characters. The beginning of the romance between Mena and Turner was cloaked in intrigue as well! The slow burn romance between them was a winner too!!! 

I have to say that Snow’s choice of a title was a stroke of genius….the meaning of those words can have different connotations. “Like You Care” could mean acting like you have genuine feelings for someone and could also be used in the sarcastic, mean way of saying, “Oh, like you  care!” She did a great job of incorporating both of those meanings seamlessly within the plotline. I just love when everything connects within a book…from the title to the ending!!!!

Kaydence Snow is a new writer to me, and I’m so glad I discovered her. I cannot wait to read more from her in the immediate future…LIKE NOW!!!!

The Memories We Bury 

by H.A. Leuschel

About the Book

An emotionally charged and captivating novel about the complexities of female friendship and motherhood, from the author of Manipulated Lives.

Lizzie Thomson has landed her first job as a music teacher, and after a whirlwind romance with Markus, the newlywed couple move into a beautiful new home in the outskirts of Edinburgh. Lizzie quickly befriends their neighbour Morag, an elderly, resourceful yet lonely widow, who’s own children rarely visit her. Everything seems perfect in Lizzie’s life until she finds out she is pregnant and her relationship with both Morag and Markus change beyond her control.

​Can Lizzie really trust Morag and why is Markus keeping secrets from her?

 




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

The Memories We Bury is the very definition of a nailbiter for me. I was captivated by the story and the characters, rapidly flipping through the pages until I knew what the truth really was. 

Lizzie hasn’t always had a happy life, but she believes her happily ever after is within reach after a whirlwind romance and marriage to Markus. He showers her with attention which she absorbs readily as she never had much of that growing up. Now, they have moved to a new home in Edinburgh, and it’s not long before her life changes when she discovers she is pregnant. Markus becomes distant, and she is very grateful to her new older neighbor, Morag. She likes having a “mother figure” since she never really had that kind of relationship with her own critical mother. She becomes reliant on Morag, and even more so when her sweet baby boy is born. The birth of her son changes her relationship with both Morag and Markus in ways she never imagined. 

The unique way the story is laid out is brilliant, told both in Lizzie and Morag’s voices. It really added to the intrigue of the book. There were some pretty creepy moments that made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. 

The characters were so complex and complicated. With every chapter, the author revealed another layer to their personality I wasn’t expecting. There were some real surprises and twists I didn’t see coming when I first started the book. 

If you are looking for a book with thrills and suspense, you can’t go wrong with this one!!! I highly recommend reading!!!!

Royal Command (Royal Watch Series) by Stacey Marie Release Blitz

Royal Command, the continuation of Stacey Marie
Brown’s sexy and suspenseful Royal Watch series, is NOW LIVE!

 
Everyone thought I was living the
fairytale—marrying a prince and living happily ever after.

That only happens in movies.

 
I was actually living a nightmare. A gilded
cage crushing my soul.
 
After a terrorist attack almost took my life
and my bodyguard, Lennox, trapping us together, we were forced to face things
we tried to deny. Feelings we could no longer ignore.
 
Leave it to me to do the stupidest thing
possible—fall for my bodyguard. But there was no fighting our hunger. Our
overwhelming connection.
 
It made me realize how much my life had been
for others: my family, the royals…Theo. But once you are part of the royal
family, you cannot just walk away. Especially when you find yourself engaged
and being groomed to be the future queen.
 
With a King threatening me, Lord William
blackmailing me, my uncle gambling away what’s left of our fortune, Theo set on
our future no matter what, and vicious social media sniffing around wanting me
to fail, I have to play the game. But secrets always seem to find a way of getting
out, and it’s not just betrayal from those I love the most that shatter my
life. It’s mine.
 
And the world wants to break what’s left of me.
 
*This is the second book in the Royal Watch
Series.

Cover Reveals · Romance

Good Times by Jiffy Kate Cover Reveal

Release Date: May 28

Finley Lawson and Georgette Taylor have been best friends since high school. Even though they’re from opposite sides of the tracks, they found common ground in their mutual love of the arts and the desire to prove themselves.

 

 
They were everything to one other, including being each other’s firsts. 
 

 

Finley assumed they’d be together forever.

 

 

 

Georgette had other plans.

 

 

 

Fast forward five years, Finn and Jette have both moved to New Orleans, unbeknownst to each other, still trying to find their place in the world. They’re going to pick back up right where they left off, right? Well, it’s not that easy.

 

 

 

Finley has questions, as well as, some pent-up anger and resentment from Jette ghosting him five years ago.

 

 

 

And Georgette has a boyfriend.

 

 

 

What hasn’t changed is their deep connection and understanding of each other. Friends are what they agree to be, but some romances deserve a second chance and fate might have other plans.
