A Gentleman for Christmas by Prescott Lane

Release Date: November 26th

AGFC_ebook_amazon_kobo_ibooks.jpg

A Gentleman for Christmas, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Prescott Lane.

Some say “chivalry is dead.”

I don’t think so. Most women I know like a gentleman.

Protective, opens doors, treats women with respect, typically follows the rules.

But a gentleman doesn’t fall for his best friend’s woman. Current or ex.

And that’s what I’ve done.

During the Christmas season of all times — that magical time for decorations, gifts, family . . .

Yes, the girl who was off-limits for so long, who I’ve loved all my life, has come back in town and possibly back to me.

I can’t follow the gentleman rules this time. There’s too much at stake. I let her go once. I won’t let her go again.

What happens under the mistletoe, stays under the mistletoe.

Or does it?

Danielle’s Review

5 STARS

Another must read from Prescott Lane! 

Jax had a pact with his best guy friends, the main part of the pact was that they would never let a girl come between them so if one liked a girl, she was off limits to the other friends. This rule meant that when his best friend said he was in love with Skylar, a female friend of theirs, Jax had to back off even though he was in love with her, too. Now, as an adult, Jax has written “The Gentleman’s Handbook” full of gentleman rules to follow.

Skylar thought Luke was The One and has been with him for 10 years. But when there is still no proposal after all this time, she figures it is time to cut her losses and move on. She goes home to visit and lick her wounds and reconnects with Jax, her longtime childhood friend. Skylar had a crush on Jax years ago but figured he never felt the same. She is shocked to learn that he has always loved her.

Can these two break the rules and find happiness together?

I loved Jax and Skylar’s story! They had such great chemistry and I loved getting both of their POV. This story was a perfect holiday romance – lots of sweetness without a lot of angst. Prescott Lane always pulls me right into each story and this one is no different. Highly recommended to put you right in the holiday spirit!

Excerpt:

“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife.”

Otherwise known as the original bros before hoes commandment.

I’m not advocating calling women hoes. It’s an expression, so put away your Encyclopedia of Political Correctness.

There are rules in life. The Ten Commandments were just the beginning. We have rules for everything. How to drive. How to dress. How to walk across the damn street. So why not rules for love? That’s how all this started — a set of rules between my buddies and me.

The Bro Code.

Obviously, bros before hoes is rule one. We vowed never to let a girl come between us, which meant if one of us liked a girl, she was forever off limits.

Little did I know our teenage pact would launch my multi-million dollar career. A little tweaking here and some socially acceptable rewording there and The Gentleman’s Handbook was born.

I’ve written books and given seminars on everything from how to find love, to how to propose, to how to have a successful long-distance relationship. You name it, and I’ve got rules for it. Personally, I’ve never been much of a rule follower, but that’s my little secret.

The funny thing is I’ve never been in love. Well, there is this one girl, but we won’t talk about her. It does no good to think about someone you can’t have and never will.

My lack of emotional commitment hasn’t slowed down my career one bit. Currently, I have two books on the New York Times Best Sellers List. My seminars sell out like a Drake concert.

I always find it interesting that the rules started between a group of male friends, but it’s mostly women that come to hear me speak. Occasionally, you see the poor sap boyfriend who was dragged along to listen, but for the most part it’s all women.

This time of the year is no exception. December first until January first is important for guys. Holidays are big for a lot of couples. If you don’t know what you’re doing for your lady, you better figure it out and fast. In fact, my rule is that you should be paying attention all year long.

Trust me on this. If you remember something she mentioned she liked three months ago and surprise her with it at Christmas, she’ll spread her legs before Santa even has time to slide down the chimney. Let’s be honest, that is always at least part of the goal for guys.

So my current work in progress tackles Christmas. A how-to guide for the holidays.

The Gentleman’s Rules for Christmas.

Danielle’s Review

4 STARS
Max and Harlow meet at a mutual friend’s wedding and the sparks fly instantly. They have a one-night stand never expecting to see each other again. Fast forward a year and these two are suddenly back in each other’s lives. The connection is still the same but Harlow is scared to open herself up to Max and possible heartbreak. Harlow can’t ignore the chemistry between her and Max but is it just sex or is there something deeper between them? Can Max convince Harlow to give him a chance?

This story had it all – sweet, heartwarming moments and swoony, hot and sexy times between Max and Harlow. Max is the perfect alpha male and I loved that Harlow was a strong female character. I loved how this book is set in a small town in Alaska and all the small town feels of the community. This is not the first book in this series, but can be read as a standalone.  I really enjoyed the author’s writing style and will continue to check out other books by her.

New Release & Review: Preach by Stylo Fantome

9 Nov

 

Title: Preach.

Series: Church Duet #2

Author: Stylo Fantôme
Genre: Dark Romance

 

 

Release Date: November 9, 2018
Blurb
A shattered woman.

A changed man.

Church Logan wanted to kill someone, and Emma Hartley wanted to die – they were a match made in hell.

But one little cut, a pint or two of blood, and suddenly everything between them is different.

Are they still destined for greatness? Or has the darkness finally eclipsed them and torn them apart?

Looks like it’s time for Church to practice what he preaches.

Ignition, meet explosion.

Warning: if you have triggers – this story will touch on a lot of them. This book is a dark romance, 65,000+ words.




Danielle’s Review

4 Stars

Preach is the second half of the Church duet. It cannot be read as a standalone.

Emma Hartley has nearly died as a result of the years of torment she has been through. She is getting help and trying to become “normal” but she still can’t quiet the voices in her head telling her how to act and what to think. Church has abandoned her and now she must figure out her future for herself and come up with a way to finally be free of her psycho mother.

Church has let Emma believe she is alone and in control of her own destiny. But she is the first person he has ever loved and he is her protector so  when the time comes, Church is prepared to be her savior once again. Emma isn’t sure if she can trust Church anymore but he is more than ready to show her how great they are together.

“You be the thunder, and I’ll be the lightning.
You be the cloud, and I’ll be the rain.”
“Forces of nature.”
“Of destruction.”
  

This is more than just a dark read, it’s a psychological thriller full of twists and turns. This book is told in dual POV which is my favorite to read and was especially great with this story to be in the head of both of these f’ed up people. I wish that there could have been a little more of an ending but I did really enjoy this story. Stylo Fantome is a talented author and I will definitely check out other stories by her.

Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since … forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

Release Date: November 7, 2018

For Cooper, being a single dad was never part of the plan…
After the devastating loss of his wife, Cooper Matthews has
to carry on for the one person who is counting on him to come out the other
side—his young daughter. She’s all he needs, or so he thinks, until a chance
encounter brings Lexi Beaumont into his life.
Escaping a toxic relationship, Lexi returns to the town
where she grew up, eager to start over. Meeting Cooper exposes an undeniable
chemistry between the two of them. But his conflicted feelings and the love he
still carries for his wife, forces him to push Lexi away, keeping her at arm’s
length.
Can two fractured hearts come together as one? Or will the
past be too much for either of them to overcome?



Danielle’s Review

4 stars

Sweet story! Really like single dad stories and this one didn’t disappoint!

Cooper is deployed when he gets word of the sudden passing of his wife. He heads home to meet and care for his daughter he hadn’t gotten the chance to meet yet. Fast forward a few years and he has gotten the hang of the single parent role just fine but needs a new nanny to help out.
Lexi has just went through a horrible break-up and her childhood friend offers her a couch to crash on. She needs to find a job so she can get her own place and when the chance to be a nanny/housekeeper for her friend’s brother’s daughter, it seems like the perfect opportunity for her to get her life back on track.
Caring for Cooper’s daughter puts Lexi in close proximity to Cooper and it isn’t long before they feel a connection to each other blooming. Are they willing to take another chance on love or is the past too painful to overcome?
I loved the main characters in this book. Bella, Cooper’s daughter, is absolutely adorable and the relationship she has with Lexi and Cooper is heart-melting. I really enjoyed getting both Cooper and Lexi’s POV in the story. The story flowed very well without a lot of angst. My first read by this author and I will definitely check her out in the future.

My life consisted of perfect structure.

Friends who tried to get me to take a walk on the wild side-Triple Check.

When my best friend announced her destination bachelorette party, I knew I was in trouble. I could handle just about anything she threw my way, but Vegas. I knew there was no way I could handle the city that never slept.

And boy was I right.

One night of planned fun turned into the night that would upend the perfectly structured life I’d built.
What could possibly go wrong when you mix gambling, shots of whiskey, and giving your engaged friend an example of how a wedding should go?

Everything.

What happened in Vegas didn’t stay there. It came home right along with me.

5 STARS

Fantastic insta-love story!! 
Avery is in Vegas for her best friend’s bachelorette party. As a dare, she kisses a stranger at a bar, never expecting the powerful connection she would feel towards him and vice versa. When circumstances bring Avery to spend more time with the handsome stranger, Gage, it becomes harder for the two to deny the chemistry between them and walk away once the getaway is over in Vegas. Can something that began on a dare build to something that will last forever?
This is my second book by this author and I loved it as much as the first!! The characters in this story are wonderful and real and I loved most of the secondary characters as well. The story flowed very well and reminded me why sometimes insta-love just works! Sometimes it feels good to read a sweet story with very little drama and one smoking hot alpha male. I am definitely a fan and will continue to read this author!!

All My Life by Prescott Lane Blog Tour with Review & Excerpt

All My Life by Prescott Lane
Release Date: October 10, 2018

All My Life_Amazon_KOBO_iBooks

All My Life, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Prescott Lane.

The beginning of any love story starts with the meet.

I’ve known Garrett Hollis since before I can remember, and I’ve loved him just as long. I loved him while he loved someone else. I loved him when he had a baby with her. I loved him when she left him.

The greatest of love stories is that between a dad and his daughter. I should know. I’ve had a front row seat. First steps, first words, all the big moments.

Garrett was just a teenager when Mia was born. I’ve watched him braid his daughter’s hair, hold her hand crossing the street, seen her asleep on his chest. I’m the best friend, the one they can count on for everything from dance lessons to motherly advice, anything they need. I’m their go-to girl.

The best part of any love story is the happily ever after.

But what if the happily ever after doesn’t include you?

All my life, that’s how long I’ve loved him.

Of course, he’s clueless.

Another hit from Prescott Lane!! 
Devlyn has been in love with Garrett since she was a kid. She has been his best friend forever and has been by his side through everything, including when he had a baby with someone else. Devlyn stood by him and was the “motherly” figure his daughter needed when he had to raise that baby on his own. She is aware that her position in the friend-zone isn’t likely to change but she loves Garrett and his daughter, Mia, wholeheartedly.
Garrett became a single father at 17 and has totally devoted himself to his daugther, Mia. Concerned that her dad will be lonely, Mia makes her graduation speech about finding someone for her dad. When the speech goes viral, Garrett finds himself with all kinds of women suitors to choose from. As he opens up to possibilities, he’s stunned by his sudden attraction to his best friend, Devlyn. But when their first kiss is off the charts hot, there’s no way these two can go back to just being friends.
Will Devlyn finally get her HEA that she has envisioned all her life? Read this friends to lovers story to find out!
I loved Garrett and Devlyn!! This story is so much more than just a friends to lovers romance. Garrett’s relationship with his daughter is so sweet and heartwarming. I loved that this book was set in a small town and most of the characters are so likable that it made me wish I were living there with them. Ms. Lane never fails to make me fall in love with her stories and be sad when they are over. I highly recommend this beautiful story and every other book by Prescott Lane.

Excerpt:

As far as dates go, this one has been good. I like her. She’s attractive, funny, smart, seems to have her head on straight. All the boxes are checked. This should be the point where I kiss her, ask her out again. I should be devising ways to get in this woman’s panties, but instead I’m thinking more about yanking down the tutu of one very sexy Biscuit Girl. I should be thinking about how to get this woman to fall for me, but it’s me that’s fallen. I should have one thing on my mind, and I do — Devlyn.

There’s just one big ass problem. She’s my friend. I can’t go there. There are so many reasons why I can’t go there. The town would have a field day. We’d have no privacy. Everyone would have an opinion. If we broke up, where would I get a decent cup of coffee? How would Mia react to this? Then there’s Scott, who’s actually the least of my concerns. Devlyn seemed pretty sure it was over, and if it’s not, I plan on convincing her.

I don’t want to lose Devlyn.

Staying friends guarantees her in my life. Dating her doesn’t.

Love doesn’t come with a guarantee.

Love is a risk. I used to be a risk taker, but teenage fatherhood buried that part of me. Stability became the name of the game. It had to. I look towards her diner, wondering if she’s back.

New Review: Tall, Dark, & Irresistible by Erika Wilde with Excerpt

20 Sep

 

TALL, DARK & IRRESISTIBLE, an all-new fun, flirty, standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Erika Wilde is available NOW!

EWTallDarkIrresistibleCover5x8_MEDIUM

When it comes to love and happily ever after, Leo Stone is a disbeliever. Having been left at the altar by the one woman he thought he’d spend the rest of his life with, he’s vowed to keep his heart to himself and enjoy the one thing he knows won’t affect his emotions . . . hot, dirty sex. Except, what’s a guy to do when a gorgeous woman asks him to be her stand-in boyfriend for two weeks—with benefits? Sign him up, please!

A drunken night one year ago, Peyton Bishop used Leo Stone’s name and photograph to convince her overprotective parents that she was safe living in New York City—in part thanks to a boyfriend she adored. Except Leo, the hot guy she’s had a secret crush on since college, has no idea he’s been cast in the role of her lover. With her cousin’s wedding coming up, and her parent’s expecting to meet this mysterious boyfriend, Peyton is forced to come clean and ask Leo a huge favor.

Leo agrees to be her stand-in boyfriend, but what’s a pretend couple to do when their fake feelings start to become oh-so-real?



 

Danielle’s Review

4 Stars
This is the 2nd book in the Tall, Dark and Sexy series but can be read as a standalone. This was a fantastic read, just like the first book in this series. I love the fake relationship trope and this book didn’t disappoint.
It’s been 4 years since Peyton and Leo have seen each other, but Peyton never forgot him or her unrequited crush on him. In fact, when she needed to make up a fake boyfriend to get her overprotective parents off her back, he’s the first person that came to mind. Now she has to return to her hometown for a wedding and is expected to bring said boyfriend as her plus one. When Peyton reconnects with Leo through his work, she tells him the truth and luckily, Leo agrees to help her out.
Leo figures what could it hurt to help out an old friend, one he might have made a play for if he hadn’t been in a relationship at the time he met her. He is still attracted to Peyton and would enjoy getting to know her on a more intimate level and since he has sworn off women after being dumped at the altar, a short-term fling is just what he needs.
But what happens when fake feelings become real?
I really enjoyed this story!! It had all the right elements – humor, hot alpha male, smoking chemistry between Peyton and Leo and just a little angst. I really like Erika Wilde’s writing style and the story flows very well. I was thrilled to revisit the characters from the first book and got a taste of what the next in this series will be about. I can’t wait to read the next one!

Excerpt:

The two of them reached Leo’s vehicle, and the doors unlocked with a chirp as he pressed the key fob in his free hand. But instead of opening the passenger side for Peyton, he instead turned her around to face him . . . trapping her between the unyielding metal surface of the car behind her and the tall, muscular man standing less than two feet away.

He casually placed a hand on the door beside her and leaned a few inches closer. “Before we go, I have one more question for you,” he said, his tone serious.

She inhaled the warm, masculine scent of his cologne mingling with leather from his jacket and tried not to let that intoxicating fragrance distract her. “Okay.” She figured it couldn’t get any worse than everything she’d already admitted.

“So, usually, when a person gets propositioned, they get something out of the deal,” he said, his heavy-lidded gaze dropping to her mouth. “You’d be getting a devoted boyfriend out of the arrangement. What would I get?”

She didn’t miss the suggestion in his eyes or the playful curve of his smile. “What do you want?” she asked, unable to hide the breathless quality of her voice.

“Well, for starters, how about a show of good faith, like a kiss?” His free hand came up and gently cupped the side of her face, while his thumb skimmed along her damp bottom lip. “I think it’s important to know what I might be getting myself into and if we’re compatible enough to pull off this whole pretend boyfriend/girlfriend thing. I mean, what if we kiss and we realize that there’s just no spark there? Then this whole farce is doomed for failure.”

He was teasing her. She could see the mischievous glimmer in his eyes, and it provoked a smile from her, even as her breathing escalated with every second that passed with the temptation of finally having Leo’s lips pressed against hers dangling like a carrot in front of her.

“Then kiss me so we can find out,” she whispered.

His thumb dipped down beneath her chin to tip her head back as he lowered his mouth to hers. His lips were surprisingly soft as they found hers for the first time, his teeth gentle as they nibbled at her bottom lip. She couldn’t hold back the needy moan that escaped her throat, or the way her hands instinctively lifted and settled against his solid chest even as he pressed closer to her, his hard thighs and hips pinning her against the car.

“Jesus,” he breathed against her lips in shock, clearly feeling the heat between them that was a spark on the verge of becoming an undeniable blaze.

Sliding both of his hands into her hair, he held her head steady as he came back for another taste, and this time, there wasn’t an ounce of gentleness in the way he swept his tongue inside and plundered her mouth—boldly, deeply, greedily. She made a wild, desperate sound as she fisted her hands in his cotton T-shirt and matched him kiss for kiss, turning that blaze into an inferno that was so hot it threatened to singe them both. And in the moment, neither one of them seemed to care.

She felt the unmistakable ridge of his erection nudging against her belly, and a new hunger spiraled tighter inside her. Desire made her knees weak, her nipples excruciatingly hard, and her panties wet. Everything about Leo Stone was sensation overload to every part of her body, and if there was any worry in either of their minds about pulling off a believable attraction, this kiss eliminated any and all concerns.

By the time Leo finally lifted his mouth from hers, they were both breathing hard from all the heightened sexual tension between them. His dark eyes glittered with lust as he gazed down at her, looking as dazed as she felt.

Somehow, someway, she found her voice. “Was that convincing enough for you?” she asked huskily.

His low, sexy chuckle made her shiver. “Oh, yeah . . . it was definitely a good start.”
