Game Changer (AJ Williams Series #1) by Lasairiona E. McMaster Blog Tour with Review

 

Game Changer

Game Changer

by Lasairiona E. McMaster

Synopsis: 

AJ Williams wasn’t supposed to fall in love with a girl on the internet. But he did.

Other than living over five thousand miles away in Northern Ireland, Lisa Millar is seemingly his perfect match. AJ can’t quite believe his luck, not only is she beautiful, but she has an appreciation for both music and hockey – two of his favorite things.

Surprised by Lisa turning up unannounced in Alabama, AJ is under pressure to deal with the issue at hand. Should he risk losing her, come clean and tell her the truth? Or should he try to keep his secret under wraps?

Will true love win out? Or will AJ’s secret be too much for Lisa to bear?




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

I just finished the Lisa Millar series last year, and I was a huge fan. Now, we have in our hands the story told from AJ’s POV. I knew their love story and the twists and turns involved. It was nice to experience it from AJ’s perspective. 

AJ and Lisa are a perfect match even if she lives across the ocean. However, AJ is hiding a secret, and it’s a big one! If you read the first series, you already know what the secret is. I like seeing it from his POV. I was quite mad at him in the Lisa Millar series, but seeing him in this book makes me have some sympathy for him. There is no doubt in my mind that he loves Lisa, but the timing of their relationship didn’t exactly happen at the right time. Again, that factor made me really feel for him and his predicament. 

I also got to see a more in-depth look into his personality and what made him tick. Yes, he made mistakes, but I definitely wasn’t as mad at him for those in this book as I was in the previous series. I’m really looking forward to reading more in the series and getting both sides of their story!

Lasairiona McMaster grew up dreaming of an exciting life abroad, and, after graduating from Queens University, Belfast, that is exactly what she did – with her then-boyfriend, now husband of almost ten years. Having recently repatriated to Northern Ireland after a decade abroad spanned over two countries (seven and a half years in America and eighteen months in India), she now finds herself ‘home’, with itchy feet and dreams of her next expatriation. With a penchant for both travelling, and writing, she started a blog during her first relocation to Houston, Texas and, since repatriating to Northern Ireland, has decided to do as everyone has been telling her to do for years, and finally pen a book (or two) and get published while she tries to adjust to the people and place she left ten years ago, where nothing looks the same as it did when she left.

Agricolas Bane

Agricola’s Bane

By Nancy Jardine

About the Book

A.D. 84 Northern Roman Britain
Nith of Tarras helps Enya of Garrigill in the search for her kin, missing after the disastrous battle at Beinn na Ciche fought between the Caledonian warriors and the mighty Ancient Roman legions. Enya soon has a heartrending choice to make. Should she tread Vacomagi territory that’s swarming with Roman auxiliaries to find her brother? Or, should she head south in search of her cousin who has probably been enslaved by the Romans?
The Commander of the Britannic Legions and Governor of Britannia – General Gnaeus Iulius Agricola – is determined to claim more barbarian territory for the Roman Empire, indeed plans to invade the whole island, but finds not all decisions are his to make. It increasingly seems that the goddess, Fortuna, does not favour him.
The adventures of the Garrigill clan continue…




Christie’s Review

4 Stars

Agricola’s Bane is the next installment in the Celtic Fervour Series, and it is just as exciting as the other in the series. Readers could probably read this as a standalone, but I wouldn’t recommend it. All the background information and characters from previous novels are present in this book even though this is about the next generation in a sense. 

Enya is in search for her brother and her cousin who are missing, and she can’t decide which direction she should go. I felt so sorry for her because her heart is torn. However, she is just as fierce as her fellow male warriors. She also has her own potential love story brewing, but this isn’t a romance book, it’s an adventure filled with danger at every turn. 

Not only is it told from Enya’s POV. There are several characters that have a story to tell, especially her cousin and her brother. In addition, the horrible villain, Agricola, is telling his own tale. As I have written before about this particular writer, she is very talented in juggling her characters. 

As with all the other books, this one is just as well-written. Jardine will transport you back in time, and readers will feel like they are right there alongside the characters.

Rebel Soul by LK Farlow Release Blitz with Review & Excerpt

Title: Rebel Soul
Author: LK Farlow
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Dramatic Comedy
Release Date: January 23, 2020
Blurb
West Larson comes from old money—the kind of wealth that comes with expectations steeped in archaic traditions. So, it’s not surprising when he learns the conditions of his trust fund: produce an heir before he turns twenty-five.

Enter Stacia Kellan. Her lowkey personality makes her the perfect baby mama…without the drama. And thanks to her wild-ass hair, colorful tattoos, and smart mouth, she’s exactly the kind of girl his parents would never approve of. Add in the fact that she’s a total smokeshow…knocking her up certainly wouldn’t be a hardship.

Stacia lives her life fast and loud. The idea of settling down isn’t on her radar. So, when her long-time friend asks her to have his baby, her immediate answer is a big, fat hell-to-the-no. Seriously, is he crazy?

West pulls out all the stops in wooing her and with every heated encounter, Stacia finds herself falling a little more for his charm and wit. Oh, and his forearms…yum.

Obligations. Lust. Friendship. Love.

The lines begin to blur as emotions enter the equation and besides, everyone knows you can’t deny your rebel soul.

Danielle’s Review

4 STARS

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Really liked this story!! Although this trope has been done many times before, the story didn’t feel stale or boring. This story gave me so many feels and made for a quick, easy read.
West has just learned that his a$$hole of a grandfather has put a clause in his will that in order for West to inherit the property his grandmother left behind for him, he must have a child before he turns 25. Although he isn’t required to also marry, he doesn’t have much time to find a suitable woman to agree to have his child that he doesn’t mind interacting with for the next 18 years. His best friend/attorney has agreed to help him with the process.
Stacia’s father has been arrested for a crime she knows he didn’t commit and her mom is nearing a nervous breakdown, leaving Stacia to figure out how to raise the money for her father’s bail and defense. Stacia needs a cheap place to stay so she can focus on saving money for her father and West offers her a place to live, after all they are friends and that’s what friends do.
After living together for a bit, West soon realizes that Stacia is the perfect woman for the role of baby mama. All he has to do is convince her of that as well. Will Stacia be able to refuse West when he is determined to get her to say yes?
I loved Stacia and West!! West is rich and sexy and has the sweetest side that will make any woman swoon. Stacia is a beautiful spitfire who’s not about to let anyone take advantage of her. The banter and chemistry between these two make this story great! If you like this kind of story, I would definitely recommend this one!

Excerpt
“Can I drive?” I ask, rubbing my hands together like an evil genius who just hatched a plan.

West appraises me for a moment before laughing. “That’d be a hell no.”

“Why?”

“This car’s got a lot of power.” He leans back against the passenger door smirking.

“Yup, sure does.”

“And you think you can handle it?”

Scoffing, I say, “I know I can.” One of the many things AJ and I bonded over when we became friends was our love of cars; while she prefers old, American muscle, I lust over supercars. Either way, she and I both like to go fast—really fucking fast. “Don’t tell me you’re one of those misogynistic assholes that think women can’t drive?”

“Not at all. I’m just territorial about my car.” A calculating glint shines in his blue eyes. “Give me one good reason I should let you behind the wheel of my baby.”

“I’ve wanted to drive one of these ever since it completed a lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife track in just over seven minutes. You do realize you own the seventh fastest street legal vehicle, right?” I step into him, pressing my front to his, my hands roaming over the hard planes of his chest. “No lie, the thought of handling it gets my panties…”

I trail off and West gulps, sliding his arms around me, tugging me impossibly closer. “Gets your panties what?” His voice is rough and gritty, rubbing over my libido the same way a stubbled jaw would my skin.

Bring my ears to his lips, I whisper, “Wet. It gets them wet.”

“Fuck,” he groans, every bit of his longing plain for me to hear—and feel, judging by the bulge pressing into my belly. “She’s all yours.”

I step back from him, a smug, victorious smile plastered to my face. “I knew you’d come around.”

The Cornish Secret of Summers Promise

The Cornish Secret of Summer’s Promise

by Laura Briggs

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

About the book

As spring slips away from the hotel Penmarrow, excitement builds for an exclusive auction hosted at the hotel, featuring priceless possessions from a Hollywood actress turned lady of the manor, including her famous diamonds. Celebrities and collectors form a crowd that is keeping Maisie and the rest of staff busy, even as Maisie faces a crossroads for her manuscript.

But when the diamonds are stolen and Sidney is accused by the authorities, Maisie’s dilemma as a writer is pushed aside out of fear that his future in Port Hewer is in jeopardy. Desperation to prove that someone else is behind the theft will lead Maisie to uncover a very different secret outside of jewel thieves and village rumors … one that could change her life and her future forever.

Can Maisie deal with the latest secrets exposed — including those that paint Sidney’s past in a questionable light? And as summer’s dawn alters her idyllic life in Cornwall, will Maisie’s feelings for Sidney change as well?




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

We return to the Hotel Penmarrow, and it is buzzing with excitement. An auction is being held there with things from a Hollywood actress…many of them are valuable and priceless. The staff can barely keep up with the number of guests that are arriving.

Excitement soon turns to crime. Some valuable diamonds have been stolen, and Sidney has been accused of the crime. Maisie has her hands full trying to prove his innocence. Maisie definitely wasn’t expecting the surprise that she will discover during her quest. She will have a big decision to make by the end of the book. 

I have always enjoyed this little series. The books are pretty short, but Briggs never leaves anything out. She takes her time in developing her story as well as her characters. I like that she has continued to build Maisie and Sidney’s relationship slowly. It allows her readers to see just how special it really is. 

I certainly wasn’t expecting the direction the book is now taking, but it makes sense. And, I for one, am really looking forward to this next chapter in Maisie’s life.

Avoiding Temptation (Bro Code Series #3) by Rachel Van Dyken Release Blitz with Review

AT - RB banner.jpg

Avoiding Temptation, an all-new contemporary romance in the Bro Code series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken, is LIVE!

Copy of AvoidTempation_ebook_HighRes.jpg

I hit on her first.

Realized she was my best friend Finn’s little sister second.

And got a bloody nose third — compliments of Finn after he watched me nearly score with the new underclassman.

After all I did have a reputation on campus, word on the street was that a girl could orgasm within one minute just watching me eat Lucky Charms.

You can’t make this stuff up — even though it was at least four minutes and included outside circumstances. Ahem, I digress.

Point is, not only did I earn the attention of the worst sort of girl for me — my best friend’s only sibling — but now she’s out to seduce me.

Me! One of the most famous Pleasure Ponies of them all!

I can’t shower — she follows me to the bathroom. Literally.

I can’t sleep — Lucky me, she lives in the same dorm.

And I can’t focus on anything except for her taunting eyes every single time something goes her way.

I want her, but I don’t want her to know I want her, and I definitely don’t want to die before graduation, which is looking more and more likely considering we can’t keep our hands off each other.

Something’s gotta give, and I have an inkling I should probably start writing my eulogy now because that something is probably going to be me.

Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Avoiding Temptation is book 3 in the addictive Bro Code Series! It’s sweet, steamy, and pretty funny too!!!!

This book details Slater’s journey to his HEA! I have been waiting for this one. I would have never guessed it would be with Finn’s sister, Tatum. The first time these two meet sparks fly and some fists, namely Finn hitting Slater for hitting on Tatum. Nevermind, that Slater had no idea, but Finn makes it abundantly clear Tatum is OFF LIMITS!!!! Slater tries…hence the perfect title, “Avoiding Temptation.”

Poor Slater is trying, but Tatum is everywhere, especially since she lives in the same dorm room with them, and he most definitely can’t get her out of his mind. These two are perfect for one another. Can they convince Finn of this without wrecking their relationship with him?

There was nothing I didn’t love about Slater and Tatum. Slater is sexy, but his heart is what endeared him to me. He is loyal to those he loves which is why he is worried about betraying Finn’s trust. Tatum is independent and spunky, yet she has a vulnerable side, especially when it comes to her selfish parents. She and Slater are both survivors but in different ways. They challenge one another. That is evident in the banter between these two. I LOVED IT!!!!

One thing I have loved this series is Van Dyken introduced us to the Pleasure Ponies and then continued to build them, letting us get to know them throughout each book. I felt like I knew Slater before this book. She also threw in some sweet little twists I totally didn’t see coming. Can’t wait to get Finn’s story next!

The Good in Goodbye (The Lisa Millar Series Book 2) by Lasairiona McMaster Blog Tour with Review

The Good in Goodbye

The Good in Goodbye

By Lasairiona McMaster

 

Synopsis

Relationships are complicated. Long distance ones, even more so.

When Lisa Millar met AJ Williams online through mutual friends, she wasn’t prepared to fall in love with the man of her dreams. She was even less prepared to discover that he already had a wife. In a heart-wrenching story of love attempting to transcend miles, Lisa finds herself pregnant and on the wrong side of the Atlantic from the man she loves.

Will their love conquer all? Or will the intricacies of a relationship woven across the Atlantic be too much to take and tear them apart once and for all?

(Warning: This book ends on a cliff hanger)




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

When the synopsis read: “Relationships are complicated. Long-distance ones, even more so,” this is no exaggeration. I have always thought Lisa and A.J.’s relationship was complicated and complex…well, it’s about to get even more so. This book is full of angst and emotion. My emotions ranged from joy, anger, and sadness. 

I thought their relationship would have somewhat settled into a routine, not always an easy one, but would still have settled somewhat. I was proven wrong. New secrets emerge from both Lisa and A.J. That is where a great deal of the angst originates from. However, Lisa undergoes some really life-changing and hard times. I always felt like Lisa put her own desires and wants below those of A.J. I mean seriously, this woman has great patience when it comes to A.J.’s situation. She undergoes a transformation, and she finally really starts questioning the state of her relationship with A.J. They are a couple I want to make it, but A.J. needs to do some compromising of his own if he wants to keep her. 

The book is a fairly quick read. As I said, there is a lot of angst within the pages, and it packs a huge emotional punch! Be aware: it does contain a cliffhanger. I am one of those weird people who loves a good cliffhanger, so I liked it! I’m looking forward to the next installment in the series!

Death Makes No Distinction

Death Makes No Distinction: A Dan Foster Mystery

by Lucienne Boyce

 

About the Book: 

Two women at opposite ends of the social scale, both brutally murdered.

Principal Officer Dan Foster of the Bow Street Runners is surprised when his old rival John Townsend requests his help to investigate the murder of Louise Parmeter, a beautiful writer who once shared the bed of the Prince of Wales. Her jewellery is missing, savagely torn from her body. Her memoirs, which threaten to expose the indiscretions of the great and the good, are also missing.

Frustrated by the chief magistrate’s demand that he drop the investigation into the death of the unknown beggar woman, found savagely raped and beaten and left to die in the outhouse of a Holborn tavern, Dan is determined to get to the bottom of both murders. But as his enquiries take him into both the richest and the foulest places in London, and Townsend’s real reason for requesting his help gradually becomes clear, Dan is forced to face a shocking new reality when the people he loves are targeted by a shadowy and merciless adversary.

The investigation has suddenly got personal.




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Death Makes No Distinction is a clever, well-written mystery!

The book begins with the murder of a young girl who was violently raped before she was killed. Dan Foster is determined to punish the perpetrator who ended her life…even if she was in the wrong part of town. As he is investigating this crime, he is summoned to investigate the murder of another woman who was of the opposite class…the rich class, who was once involved with King George. 

Dan is extremely upset that he has been told to concentrate all his focus on wealthy Louise, not the young beggar woman. He is determined to solve both. If he doesn’t have enough on his plate already, a danger lurks even closer to his family than he possibly imagined.
