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!)

4 Apr

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.

Mister Bodyguard by Lauren Rowe Release Blitz

3 Dec

 

Mister Bodyguard, an all-new emotional and sexy friends to lovers romance by Lauren Rowe is NOW LIVE!

 

 

A bodyguard, a beauty, and a bet.

“I’m hiring you to do more than guard her, Zander,” my new boss explained. “You’re gonna be her rock. Her human Valium. Her trusted friend. And she’s gonna be your mission from God.”
“So I’m her babysitter?”
“Her babysitter, her bodyguard, her f*cking service doggie. Whatever she needs or wants, that’s what you’ll be. Anything except her booty call.” The vein in my new boss’s neck bulged. “Touch her and I’ll do more than fire your ass, Zander. I’ll rip off your balls.”
My buddies laughed when I told them about my ridiculous new job. They said, “Three months on a tour with a world famous beauty, glued to her hip, catering to her every whim? A hundred bucks says you’re gonna break down and bang her within the first month.”
But I said nope. No way. Never. “I’m a professional,” I said. “Plus, she’s not even my type. And I’m just getting over a broken heart. It’s never gonna happen.”
So I put my money where my mouth was, figuring I’d laugh all the way to the bank. I never thought I’d actually fall in love with the girl.Or that she’d become my reason for breathing.

The job, the bet, the girl. It was nothing but fun and games . . . until it became dead serious.

MISTER BODYGUARD is a standalone, friends to lovers contemporary romance in the MORGAN BROTHERS SERIES from USA Today Bestselling Author Lauren Rowe. The story of Zander Shaw—Keane Morgan’s devoted best friend who is an honorary Morgan Brother—and the pop star who brings him to his knees.

New Review: When Forever Changes by Siobhan Davis with Excerpt

6 Oct

 

When Forever Changes, an all-new emotional, angsty, new adult romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available NOW!

WhenForeverChanges_ecover

Gabby



Looking back, I should have seen the signs. Perhaps I did, but I subconsciously chose to ignore them.

From the time I was ten, when I first met Dylan, I knew he was my forever guy. Back then, I couldn’t put words to what I was feeling, but, as the years progressed, I came to recognize it for what it was—soul-deep love. The kind only very few people ever get to experience. Dylan was more than just my best friend, my childhood sweetheart, my lover.

He was my soulmate.

We were carved from the same whole—destined to be together forever.

Until he changed.

And I believed I was no longer good enough.

Until he shattered me so completely, it felt like I ceased to exist.

And I’d never experienced such heart-crushing pain.

Until he leveled me a second time, and I truly wanted to die.

But I had to stay strong because I wasn’t alone in this cruel twist of fate.

I look to the sky, pleading with the stars, begging someone to tell me what I should do because I don’t know how to deal with this. I don’t know how to cope when my forever has changed, and I can’t help wondering if I had seen the signs earlier, if I’d pushed him, would it have been enough to save us?

Or had fate already decided to alter our forever?



Christie’s Review

5 +++++ STARS

All-Time Favorite Read

A Top Read of 2018, A Top Read in Friends to Lovers, A Top Read in Second Chance Romance

Oh my goodness!!! Siobhan Davis has given her readers an emotional and unforgettable read! It’s a beautiful friends to lovers and second chance romance, which just happen to be two of my favorite sub-genres in romance!

I knew this was going to be an angsty and emotional read, but I certainly wasn’t prepared for the journey Davis had in store for me.

The story centers around Gabby, Dylan, and Slater. From reading the synopsis, I knew there was a possibility of a love triangle, but it wasn’t anything like I thought it was going to be. Several external factors played into it. All I can say is Davis turned this romance upside down with the twists she included. Those were what made this such an extraordinary book.

While creating a wonderful story, she created outstanding characters that breathed life into it. Gabby was a young woman I would want as my friend, caring and kind. At times, I thought she gave Dylan way too many chances, but because of who she was, I understood why. As the story progressed, she really tried not to give Dylan or Slater false hope.

Unlike most romances, this book had two heroes in my opinion, both Dylan and Slater. Each of them loved Gabby. Yes, Dylan was a flawed hero, but his love for her never waned as you will find out throughout the book. I knew Slater was Prince Charming from the very beginning. He is my current reigning king of book boyfriends. I’m not sure any other man will dethrone him in my eyes. He embodies what it means to love someone unconditionally.

This is a book to be read slowly, and I say this because I want others to savor every word like I did. Davis will break your heart several times, but trust me when I way she will lovingly put it back together again. This is a wonderful, wonderful book about real and lasting love!!!!!

Excerpt:

A shrill whistle pierces my eardrums, and I look up as my name is called. My brother, Ryan, waves from across the street. He’s in his running gear, and, judging by the hair plastered to his forehead, I’m guessing he’s on the return route of his daily jog. He sprints across the road with a certain look on his face. One I’ve seen way too many times to count.

“Good evening, ladies,” he says, all but ignoring me as he grins seductively at my friend. Very slowly, he peruses the length of her body, licking his lips and folding his muscular arms across his torso. Myndi’s chest visibly heaves as she returns the eye-fuck, and I know it’s time to stop this train wreck from happening.

I punch Ryan in the arm.

Hard.

“Ow!” Rubbing his arm, he scowls at me.“What the fuck was that for?”

“Quit with the sleazy‘comefuck me’ looks. Myndi is my best friend so that means she’s off limits to the likes of you.” I prod my finger in his solid chest to drill my point home. And it’s not the first time I’ve had to issue a warning. He’s been after her since last year. Although he’d never make a move on any girl in a relationship, now that Myndi and Travis are no more, he seems to have made it a mission to get her underneath him.

As much as I love my brother, and I truly adore him, he’s a complete manwhore, leaving a trail of broken hearts all over campus. If I thought his intentions were serious, and that Myndi was into it, I wouldn’t stand in their way, but I don’t want to see her hurt. And I don’t want things to become awkward. Even though Ryan, Slater, and their crew are seniors, we still hang with them a lot, and if Ryan treated Myndi like one of his “girls,” things would definitely get messy.

“You’re lucky you’re my favorite sister,” he grumbles, shoving my finger away.

I purse my lips and narrow my eyes.“I’m your only sister.”

“Exactly.” He smirks, and I roll my eyes.

“Myndi has just had a bad breakup and the last thing she needs is Mr. One-night Stand hitting on her.”

He slams a hand over his chest, feigning upset.“You slay me, little sis. Such cruel words.”

“Don’t even try to deny it. There’s a running roll call of your conquests on the wall in the girls’ restroom.” A sour taste fills my mouth.“And that is not something I should ever have to see.” I’m not confirming it’s a list of the hottest guys on campus with each girl rating their skills on a scale of one to ten. Or the fact he and Slater are more than holding their own at the top of the list. Ugh. A sister does not need to know this stuff.

He puffs out his chest, and his lips curl up at the corners.“Can’t help it if the ladies love what I’m offering.” He shoots us a smug grin.“It’s all in the James’ genes. You’d know it if you hadn’t attached yourself to Woods when you were still in diapers.”

I smack his chest this time.“I was fifteen when Dylan and I first started going out. Asshat.”

“Does Woods know you get off on beating up defenseless men?” He grabs his chin between his thumb and forefinger.“Oris that the standard he’s used to?”

I fist my hands into knots, working hard to quell the urge to thump him again.“Ugh.You are so freaking annoying. Thank God, it’s your last year here.”

Quick as a flash, he grabs me into a headlock, messing up my hair.“Don’t be mean, Tornado. You know you’ll miss your favorite brother.”

Flirting With Forever by Kendall Ryan Review Tour

4 Sep

 

 

I’ve waited years for the perfect girl, yet she was right in front of me all along.

My best friend, Natalie, has been by my side through everything. Leaning on my shoulder, borrowing my sweatshirts…and making my pants too tight when she flashes me that sassy smile that drives me crazy.

But she has no idea about that last part. She doesn’t have a clue I’ve felt this way about her for years.

Until one night after too many cocktails, we fall into bed together.

I’m flirting with my forever…she just doesn’t know it yet.

This book is a sexy, slow-burning best-friends-to-lovers romance with a guaranteed HEA and no cheating. Dive in, and get ready to melt for Cam!

 



Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Top Read in Friends to Lovers Romance

All-Time Favorite Read

 

How did I miss this entire chapter of my life, waiting so patiently for me to turn the page?

 

I’m a sucker for a good friends to lovers romance, and this one was FANTASTIC!!! It was sexy, sweet, and just made my heart pitter patter.

Jack, Natalie, and Cam have been friends forever, but lately Cam is seeing Natalie in a much different light. From the moment he first saw her, she intrigued him. However, he and Jack agreed to just be friends with her. That worked for a long time, but Cam can think of nothing else but her. He knows he can’t act on it. He would never do anything to destroy his friendship with either one of them, but his heart is making it difficult.

Natalie is noticing Cam acting differently, and she doesn’t understand what is going on with him. He has always been her rock, and he has never expected her to change. He has always accepted her for who she is. Yet, she is questioning if she has done something to cause the difference.

There was a lot of laughter in this book. I loved the relationship between the three friends, especially the flashbacks of their younger days. They really are like a family. Cam would make any woman fall for him, and Natalie is a strong, independent woman, never letting the way she grew up determine the adult she would become.

The chemistry between Natalie and Cam was evident, even if it was a slow burn, but oh it was so good! Ryan knows how to give her readers just enough to keep us wanting more. Yet, she makes the relationship realistic by exploring their feelings of confusion and their fear of losing their friendship not with just each other but with Jack as well.

If you are in the mood for a feel good romance with the perfect combination of sexiness and sweetness, grab this one and fall in love with Natalie and Cam!

INFINITE

by Cecy Robson
A Carolina Beach Novel, #3
Publication Date: August 15, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Standalone

NEW RELEASE!

SYNOPSIS

Hale Wilder, aka the Anaconda of Wall Street, spent his childhood fighting to be the best to win his father’s love. He was the best student and the best athlete, who grew into a successful businessman and took the finance world by storm. Want to retire before you’re forty-five? He’s got you. Need your millions to be billions? He’s your man.

Young, rich, and powerful, Hale was unstoppable, until a company scandal destroys his reputation and threatens to bring down everything he’s bled for.

Becca Shields is the kickass public relations goddess spinning scandals to gold and launching has-beens into superstardom. She never expected to see Hale again—not following the humiliating night when her family caught them on the beach, barely clothed.

When Becca discovers Hale is in trouble, she can’t turn her back on the boy who was once her world and the man she never forgot.

Hale never thought he’d have another shot at greatness or with Becca. Now that he has both, he won’t let either go without a fight.

*NOTE* Although a part of a series, INFINITE can be read as a complete STANDALONE and features a new couple!

 



Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Somehow Cecy Robson weaved together a second chance/friends to lovers romance to give her readers a beautiful book full of emotion!!!

From the very beginning, I knew this one would capture my heart, and it did. My heart broke for Becca and Hale within the first few pages of this book. The two had been friends almost their entire lives. Hale knew what Becca had to endure at home, and he tried his best to be her friend and protector. On the eve of them starting their lives as adults, Becca finally got her nerve up to show Hale that she loved him much more than a friend, but tragically that was yanked away from them. Becca had to choose which path her life would take, and unfortunately, it would be a life without Hale.

Fast forward years later, and both of them have successful lives…he is dubbed the “Anaconda of Wall Street,” and she is a PR queen who can turn anyone’s reputation around. The two have seen each other since that painful night, but misunderstandings and misconceptions have continued to keep them apart. Now, with Hale in big legal trouble, Becca will do whatever she has to do to help him. This could be the chance they have been waiting for.

Hale and Becca grabbed ahold of my heartstrings from the beginning of this book. Both are such good people who definitely deserve one another. I was devastated when they were torn apart. But, fate had other plans for them then. That night so long ago, Becca didn’t choose her family or Hale, she chose herself. That takes AMAZING courage! Every success she has ever obtained was from her own hard work. She epitomizes independence and tenacity!

Honestly, Hale is a lot like Becca. He worked hard for his success as well. He will have to depend on that strength to get him through this hard time, along with Becca and their friends.

As in all of Robson’s books, she creates a great cast of secondary characters who play an important role in the story. She gives her readers just enough about them to pique our interest, and thankfully includes some of them in future books of the series.

I have long been a fan of Cecy Robson. Her romances are always so much more than just romances. They are full of emotion…she can break my heart and make me cry tears of sadness, and then she miraculously pieces my heart back together, making me cry tears of joy! I always know that no matter what she writes she will have my heart and soul, and this book was no exception! As always, I’m eagerly anticipating what book will be next!
