Insatiable by Melanie Harlow Cover Reveal with Pre-Order Links

Insatiable - CR banner

After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we’re insatiable.

Insatiable, an all-new irresistible friends to lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is coming November 11th and we have the gorgeous cover!

Insatiable AMAZON

I didn’t mean to see him naked–it was an accident.

It had to be, right?

Because Noah McCormick and I have never been anything more than friends. In all the years I’ve known him, he’s never once laid a finger on me. And even though he was a cute lifeguard at 16 and a hotter-than-hell sheriff’s deputy at 34, he’s always been that protective guy I could trust to keep his hands to himself. I never wanted to mess with that.

Until I walked in on him getting out of the shower and saw his hard, muscular body totally bare and dripping wet. At that moment I never wanted to mess with anything so badly in my entire life.

I should have covered my eyes. Said I was sorry. At the very least, I could have handed him a towel.

After all, I was only in town for a few days, and he was just doing me a favor by escorting me to my sister’s wedding. It wasn’t a real date.

But I didn’t apologize. And he didn’t cover up.

(Talk about a hot mess.)

After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we’re insatiable.

He’s made it clear he’s not interested in romance. Which is fine with me because

I’ve got a plane ticket back to my real life at the end of the week.

It’s all in fun…or is it?

Grit (7th and Main Series) by Elizabeth Hunter Release Blitz

GRIT, an all-new standalone, friends-to-lovers
romance in the 7th and Main series by 
Elizabeth
Hunter is
NOW LIVE!

 

 

 

He’s been patient;
she’s been busy.

Patience is running out.

Melissa Oxford is a
widow with a ranch, an orange grove, a goat-obsessed ten-year-old, and not
enough time. She doesn’t have time to make friends. She doesn’t have time to
stop and chat, and she definitely does not have time for a boyfriend.

Which is fine, because Cary Nakamura is far from being a boy. Cary’s the man
who helped Melissa plant her trees. The friend who keeps offering advice, even
when she’s is too stubborn to take it.

He’s also the man
who kissed Melissa in broad daylight on a sidewalk in Metlin, California, smack
in the face of God and everyone.
But while Melissa
may spend a little too long dreaming about Cary from a distance, she knows the
kind of passion he promises is more than she can handle.
She just doesn’t
have the time.
But sometimes, no
matter how busy you are, life makes you stop. It pulls you up short and makes
you see things a little more clearly. Things like…
The people you can
count on.

The dreams you keep pushing away.

And the passion that can’t be denied.

GRIT is a stand-alone,
friends-to-lovers romance in the Love Stories on 7th and Main series by
Elizabeth Hunter, author of INK.

Choose Me, an all-new standalone coming-of-age romance

by RC Boldt is LIVE!

Choose Me, RC Boldt cover 1.jpg

Wearing the nicest suit I own, I stand in the very back with a flask full of whiskey in my inner pocket. I put on a brave face as I watch her walk down the aisle.

Because it’s too late.

I refuse to be the bastard who makes her cry on her wedding day, but I’m dying to tell her what I’ve always known. She’s my best friend, but she doesn’t realize she owns my f*cking heart and soul, too.

Each step down that aisle takes her farther away from me and brings her closer to him, forcing me to face the truth: I’ve fallen in love with someone who can’t be mine. If she’d just turn around, maybe she’d realize I love her more than he ever could.

I won’t ruin her perfect day, but my broken heart begs me to try and convince her.

Choose me.

Danielle's Review

 

L-O-V-E-D this book!! If you love friends to lovers romance, this is a definite must read!!
Magnolia and Hollis meet as young children when Hollis and his parents move into the home behind Magnolia’s. Hollis and his father are building a treehouse when Magnolia comes over offering refreshments and asking to help. From there, the two become friends that will grow through the years. The story offers enough backstory of Hollis and Magnolia to get the full picture of their friendship over the years and the reasons why things have never progressed from friendship to more until now. Once Hollis makes his feelings known, what choice will Magnolia make for her future?
I loved these two and my heart broke for the things they both endured during their childhood and early adulthood. I don’t think I have ever cheered more for a couple to get their HEA as this one. I loved the roller coaster of emotions I experienced during this story and was sad when the story ended. This is definitely one I can picture as a movie on the big screen. Fantastic read that I highly recommend!

Excerpt:

“Hollis?”

I startle at the male voice calling my name. When I turn, I find a guy about my height wearing a button-down shirt beneath a sport coat and a pair of pressed slacks. He regards me with a mixture of surprise and recognition while I have no idea who the hell he is. He steps closer with a smile.

“Sorry to catch you off guard,” he apologizes and holds out his hand to me. “Grant Stevenson.”

I shake his hand warily. “Hollis Barnes.” I pause before adding, “But somehow, you already knew that.”

He grins, and if I’m being completely honest, I don’t detect any douchebag vibes. “I recognized you from one of the photos Magnolia has in her room of the two of you.”

It takes all my control to suppress the jolt that zigzags through me at his words. She still keeps a photo of us?

His eyes crinkle at the corners, and he lifts his chin to gesture to me. “Although I have to be honest, the ink and beard initially threw me off.”

A surprised laugh escapes me, and I slide my hands into my pockets.

Grant steps closer and glances around before lowering his voice. “I’m actually glad you’re here. I know you and Magnolia haven’t seen one another in a while, but you’re her oldest friend…”

Oldest friend. Not best friend. I don’t miss the phrasing. Although I don’t feel it’s intentional, it cuts deep just the same.

“I’m nervous as hell, and I’m hopin’ you can tell me if she’d like this.”

It takes me a moment to realize what he’s pulled out of his pocket.

A velvet ring box and a packet of Pop Rocks.

Fuck, fuck, fuck.

I resist the urge to rub at the center of my chest, where searing pain radiates.

He flicks open the box to reveal a ring with a large diamond that’s fancy as hell. Something Mrs. Barton would love and deem appropriate. But Magnolia? Hell no.

“Her mom helped me pick it out.”

Exactly.

“And I know she loves Pop Rocks since she always has a pack.”

Not the strawberry flavor.

But he’s trying. I can see the nervousness in his expression. The hope. The excitement.

I can’t crush this guy. He’s exactly what her parents have always wanted for her. The kind of guy who doesn’t get his hands dirty. The one with money and connections.

The one who can give her the future her parents expect her to have. The one who won’t come home with rough hands, callused to hell and back from working on a project that’s for a high-end client or due to be auctioned off to a car collector with more money than they know what to do with.

The man who wears button-downs like they’re second skin. Designer clothes.

So caught up in my thoughts, I don’t immediately realize that he’s pocketed the items and is gazing in another direction. When I turn and follow his focus, catching sight of her weaving through the crowd, I take advantage of the moment and let my eyes drink her in. She’s…so goddamn beautiful.

Her long blond hair spills down her back, and even beneath the shapeless graduation gown, her sleek, tanned legs peek out from the bottom hem, her heels accentuating her toned calf muscles.

When she catches sight of Grant, her entire face lights up, and…goddammit.

I can’t do this. This was a fucking mistake. It’s like someone’s performing open heart surgery and just cracked my chest open without anesthesia.

The Perfect First by Maya Hughes Cover Reveal & Giveaway (Two $25 Amazon GCs for you and a friend!)

Title: The Perfect First

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: New Adult Romance

Cover Design: Najla Qamber, Qamber Designs

Release Date: April 25, 2019

 

BLURB

“How long do you last in bed?” Those were her first words to me, swiftly followed up with, “And how big would you say you are?”

Cue the record scratching, what?!

Persephone Alexander. Math genius. Lover of blazers. The only girl I know who can make Heidi braids look sexy as hell. And she’s on a mission. Lose her virginity by the end of the semester.

I walked in on her interview session for potential candidates (who even does that?) and saw straight through her brave front. She’s got a list of Firsts to accomplish like she’s only got months to live. I’ve decided to be her guide for all her firsts except one. Someone’s got to keep her out of trouble. I have one rule, no sex. We even shook on it.

I’ll help her find the right guy for the job. Someone like her doesn’t need someone like me and my massive…baggage for her first time.

Drinking at a bar. Check.

Partying all night. Double check.

Skinny dipping. Triple check.

She’s unlike anyone I’ve ever met. The walls I’d put up around my heart are slowly crumbling with each touch that sets fire to my soul.

I’m the first to bend the rules. One electrifying kiss changes everything and suddenly I don’t want to be her first, I want to be her only. But her plan was written before I came onto the scene and now I’m determined to get her to re-write her future with me.

Synopsis:

Kitty was not only beautiful but also incredibly intelligent—except when it came to relationships. It seemed if a guy was a loser, corrupt, deadbeat or unavailable, she was completely and utterly attracted to him. She definitely had a “type,” and all of them had been one bad decision after another.

Dallas had trouble of his own. Finding women wasn’t a problem—he could charm the pants off almost anyone—but most of those “pantless” women ended up being a few bananas short of a fruit basket. Not always the best candidates for his sex-without-strings philosophy. He was one date away from ending up a 60 Minutes special.

While both of them were at the top of their game professionally—she a high-powered executive assistant, and he one of the best tattooists in the city—their personal lives had become a dumpster fire.

No one in their right mind would have suggested they join forces to help each other wade through the crazy. Surely that was a recipe for disaster? But without reason, logic or even sanity on their side, they decided to do it anyway.

It was a hot mess primed for a head-on collision.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

A Top Romantic Comedy of 2019

I can always count on T. Gephart to give me a book that I fall in love with. Car Crash is no different. It has everything I love in a T. Gephart novel…great characters, a great storyline, packed full of romance, spice, and humor!!!

Kitty and Dallas are those special characters full of color and life that just jump off the pages of the book. Kitty is beautiful, sassy, and intelligent. Despite those qualities, her dating life is a disaster. If a loser is anywhere in the vicinity of Kitty, she will find him. Needless to say, she has axed the idea of ever having a serious relationship.

Dallas is sexy, extremely artistic, and much more intelligent than her gives himself credit for. He loves women…all kinds of them…but with no commitment. As much as he thinks he knows  women, he really is clueless.

Dallas and Kitty did have one-night together, and it was spectacular. Somehow, they have remained friends. They come up with the bright idea to help each other out. She will help him decipher women, helping him avoid the crazies. In return, he will help her avoid the losers. What could possibly go wrong with this fail-proof plan, especially when they find it harder and harder to resist each other?

I haven’t had this much fun watching two people fall for one another in a LONG time. There are some really steamy moments as well as some very tender ones as well. They are great as friends which makes them even better as more!!!! Both of them have HUGE personalities. I loved seeing the deeper parts of their personalities which were revealed the more time they spent together.

I was in need of a book that would leave me with a big smile on my face, and T. Gephart definitely did that. I’m not surprised though. She is an incredibly talented writer who gives me an original story with characters I never forget!!!!

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

 

T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia.

With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap. Her lack of “plan” has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history. She’d tell you all about it, but the statute of limitations hasn’t expired yet. But all those crazy twists and turns have led her to a career she loves—writing romantic comedy.

When she isn’t filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she’s living her own reality show in the ‘burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child—Woodley.

She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.
