All The Truths (Lies and Truth Duet #2) by Rina Kent Release and Review Tour with Giveaway ($25 Amazon Gift Card)

🔥🔥 HOT NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

The highly anticipated conclusion to the Lies & Truths Duet is here! All The Truths by Rina Kent is LIVE!! #OneClick today!

Blurb

 

The truth doesn’t set you free.

Revenge shouldn’t be rushed. It needs to be savored.

Reina ruined my life and it’s only fair I ruin hers back.

Or that was the plan.

That was before she got under my skin and flowed into my blood.

Life as we know it crashes and burns.

All we have left is revenge.

Or is it?

All The Truths is a dark new adult book that contains dubious situations some readers might find offensive and/or triggering. If you’re looking for a hero, you won’t find him in Asher Carson. Please don’t read if any of that bothers you.

All The Truths is the second part of a duet and is NOT standalone.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

An All-Time Favorite Read 

A Top Read of 2020

 

Absolutely riveting, AMAZING read!!!! I spent a late, late night finishing this one up! How could I not???? It was addictive!!!!

I knew this one was going to be good after finishing the first book, and Rina Kent blew all of my expectations out of the water!!!!! The title of the book, “All the Truths,” was a perfect choice because all the secrets and truths will be revealed!

Asher has been determined to make Reina pay for crushing him and ruining his life. Yet, he can’t reconcile the new Reina from the old Reina. She isn’t perfect, but she is real. He actually sees the smiles that weren’t there before and could that actually be real desire he sees in her eyes when he is around?

Reina now has several mysteries about herself she needs to discover before it’s too late? I liked the soul-searching journey she went on. I, like Asher and other characters, made an unfair judgement about her. She had very good reasons for acting the way she did. I really came to like her….she was one bad@## heroine!!!!

The chemistry is just as sizzling in this book as it was in the first book. Yet, there are also some real, genuine feelings mixed in with all the other complicated feelings they have for one another. Kent gives us an in-depth look into both characters. She slowly peels back the layers of these two complicated people. I never would have guessed who these two were at their core! They actually have more in common than either of them guessed! 

Not only were Asher and Reina mysteries themselves, but the twists and turns Kent included blew my mind! I really thought I was a genius and had all of this figured out in the first book, well, Rina Kent is the genius! I never expected the twists she had in store!!!! This duet are the first books I have read from this author, but she has definitely made me a fan!!!!!

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.

You’ve Got My Number by Angela Barton Blog Tour with Review

You’ve Got My Number

By Angela Barton

 

Synopsis

Three isn’t always a magic number … 
There are three reasons Tess Fenton should be happy. One, her job at the Blue Olive deli may be dull, but at least she gets to work with her best friend. Two, she lives in a cosy cottage in the pretty village of Halston. Three, she’s in love with her boyfriend, Blake.

Isn’t she?

Because, despite their history, Blake continues to be the puzzle piece in Tess’s life that doesn’t quite fit. And when she meets intriguing local artist Daniel Cavanagh, it soon becomes apparent that, for Tess, love isn’t as easy as one, two, three …




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

 

What a charming little novel from Angela Barton! It really is an uplifting, romantic novel with two wonderful lead characters, Tess and Daniel!

I love the reference to the number three throughout the novel. Tess has three reasons to be happy. She has a good job and gets to work with her best friend. She has a great place to live, and she has a long-time boyfriend. Those are great reasons to be happy, right? However, it’s her boyfriend, Blake, who is the biggest reason for her unhappiness. They haven’t been happy for a long time. When she meets Daniel, things get even more complicated because she is developing feelings for him.

The number three has meaning for Daniel too, but for very different reasons. A decision he made many years ago continues to affect him in the present. Meeting Tess brings him a kind of hope he hasn’t felt in many years. Too bad, she has a boyfriend…

The book is told from several POVs. Sometimes when authors include too many of those, it can be confusing and become bogged down. However, that isn’t the case with this book. It works very well. Despite the different narrators, the two main characters are Tess and Daniel. What sweet characters they are. Tess is so loyal and sweet, too much for her jerk boyfriend, Blake. UGH…he is terrible!!!!! Daniel is still trying to make up for what happened in his past, and he is totally devoted to his twin sister!

For those of you who don’t like a love triangle, don’t worry there really isn’t one. The author really does take her time in developing the relationship between Tess and Daniel, giving us a sweet friendship, but there are undercurrents of their deep feelings for one another.

I love finding new authors, and Angela Barton is a new one for me. I loved her style of writing. She wrote in a way that made me feel like I was a part of the story myself. I’m looking forward to reading more from her.

The Sinner (Haven Grace Prep) by Kelsey Clayton Release Blitz with Review & Giveaway (A Chance to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card)

🔥🔥 NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

The Sinner by Kelsey Clayton is LIVE and FREE in KU!

“This DEVASTATINGLY BEAUTIFUL book was a storm that I never saw coming, but one that wrecked my heart and soul in the most wonderful of ways.” ~Karen, Bookalicious Babes Blog

When I was a kid, my best friend betrayed me in the worst way possible, ripping my family to shreds in the aftermath. She ruined my life in one fell swoop, and didn’t even have the heart to warn me.

Now, nearly a decade later, I’m back in the town I grew up in, determined to make her pay.

They say revenge is a dangerous game, but I’ve never been one to play it safe. There is nothing I’ll love more than to find her weakness and use it to destroy her. The lie she told all those years ago will be her undoing.

Savannah Montgomery may be queen of the rich and entitled, but she’s about to meet her match.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Wow!!! What a read! My advice: be prepared to do nothing else until you have finished the last page! I literally finished the book within hours!

This is a friends to enemies to lovers tale! Savannah and Grayson were as close as two kids could be just realizing there may be something more when life tore them apart. As they were children who had adults in their lives that were in control, they weren’t sure what happened. Grayson felt like Savannah betrayed him in the worst way possible. She believes he abandoned her. Each endured pain that would break most people, but not these two!!!!

Years later, Grayson returns, and he is bent on revenge, making Savannah pay for what he thinks she did. Both have changed…yes, there is still a bit of the children they once were, but that is buried so deep inside of who they are now. 

I liked both characters, although Grayson made it a bit harder to like him at first. He is cold and downright mean to Savannah. On the surface, she could appear to those that didn’t know her as cold and unfeeling. However, she is trying to survive. Every decision she makes and every secret she keeps is for that very survival. Grayson upends all of that. He runs hot and cold…he isn’t sure if he hates Savannah or loves her. At times, he is really cruel to her, and I hated him for it. I got angry at her for putting up with it. But, Grayson is so determined on revenge that he can’t see anything but that. These two are so evenly matched that one of them is going to break, and it was something else to see which one would do it first. 

One thing I thought was unique about the book and characters was that most of them were not the stereotypical “mean” jocks and rich kids, with the exception of one character. You will know who she is not too far into the book! Most of them are supportive of Savannah, even though they aren’t quite sure how well they really know her. 

There was mystery and suspense woven throughout the book which kept me interested. Clayton really did a great job of balancing the romance, the angst, and the mystery. Granted this was a somewhat dark read, but there were also glimmers of light throughout. It is a coming of age book not for the faint of heart, but I enjoyed every single moment of it.

“You know, you might be lacking in male genitalia, but the guys’ bathroom is across the hall.”

He narrows his eyes on me, and I think I even see the corner of his mouth twitch—but that could be my mind playing tricks on me. “Funny, because the Savi I knew would turn bright red at the slightest mention of a dick.”

I cross my arms and lean back against the cool ceramic. “That girl is long gone.”

“So I’ve noticed.” He crosses the distance between us and reaches his hand out to brush the hair out of my face. “It’s a shame. She was my favorite.”

He’s so close that his scent overtakes my senses. The smell of smoke masked over by cologne, yet still him. I don’t dare to move as he brings his hand to the back of my neck and presses his forehead against mine. Even after all these years, he’s makes my whole body come alive. Every nerve ending concentrates on his touch. He remains still, his lips only millimeters from mine.

“Gray.” I whisper, but regret the nickname as soon as it comes out of my mouth.

He tenses instantly, and the energy in the room changes. His grip tightens as he pulls back, and the fire in his dark blue eyes sends fear straight through me.

“Don’t call me that,” he growls. “You don’t get to fucking call me that.”

My brows furrow. “What happened to you?”

The dark chuckle that comes from his mouth echoes around the small room. “Isn’t it obvious, Savannah?” My name is like poison on his tongue. “You happened to me. There isn’t a single thing in my life that you haven’t ruined. Broken everything that ever meant anything to me. Now, I won’t stop until I break you.”

New Review: The Life You Stole by Jewel E. Ann with Excerpt

New Review (1)

“Hold on with both hands because you’re about to experience the ride of a lifetime. All the stars for this masterpiece.”

-Marni Mann, USA Today Bestselling Author

The Life You Stole, the compelling and stunning conclusion to the binge-worthy Life Duet from Jewel E. Ann, is available now!

LifeYouStole-01b

Sex.

Lies.

Revenge.

On the heels of a devastating loss, Evelyn fights to put her life back together.

Only … part of her husband belongs to another woman, and the devil owns her soul.

“If you tell her the lie, I will tell her the truth.”

When her best friend goes to great lengths to protect Evelyn from destruction and devastation, mistakes are made, lines are crossed, and all trust is shattered.

“We weren’t unbreakable.

I just needed to believe we weren’t unrepairable.”

LYS - AN




Danielle’s Review

5 STARS

This duet is by far a top read for me – not only of 2020 but among my top favorites ever! Not only because the writing is impeccable but also because I love books that I can’t stop thinking about for days/weeks after.

 

In the first book, I thought I knew these 4 friends pretty well but now I know that I was wrong. The twists and turns that the first book took were nothing but a drop in the bucket compared to TLYS. This book picks up where The Life That Mattered left off and the suspense picks right back up as well. This book utterly broke me, to the point that I had to put my kindle down, try to contain my tears and take some deep breaths before I could continue. I was almost too afraid to keep reading because I didn’t know how much my poor heart could take but I am thankful that I kept going. This was a beautifully unique and complex story and I love that one of my favorite authors of all time wrote it! Highly recommended!!

Excerpt

 

I jumped, shutting my computer, and glanced up at Graham paused at the threshold to my room, loosening his red tie. He always looked handsome in a suit and that red tie I gave him for his birthday. I didn’t expect to see him. My assistant said he was at the Governor’s Mansion. I rarely stayed there, but he used it as an occasional “getaway.” Probably from me. So when she told me he was there, I made the assumption (actually hoped) he’d decided to stay the night and get some work done.

“It’s not even seven.” I tucked my bare feet beneath me, still wearing my navy skirt suit and silk scarf—my long hair in loose curls down my back and around my shoulders just like Graham liked it.

He took calculated steps toward me, completely untying his tie, letting it drop to the floor before working the buttons to his starchy white shirt. I tried to forget my internet search, not that it mattered because I couldn’t hide anything from my husband. He elicited a warring of emotions from me. An icy tingle slithered along my spine, making every muscle rigid, while the warmth in my heart fed on the way my pulse reacted to his proximity, the way it always had done. That never changed. It was how I knew we weren’t broken.

“Did you miss me?” He smirked, shrugging off his shirt, revealing his defined torso—abs for days beneath a thin smattering of dark hair on his chest.

I was the envy of so many women. Every day I reminded myself of that.

“Nice scarf.” He knelt in front of the chair.

I returned a nervous smile, hoping the man before me was the man I loved. Graham untied the scarf, sliding it from my neck as slowly as he’d slid off his tie just seconds earlier. The scarf floated to the floor. Gentle fingers swept my hair off my shoulders, exposing my neck.

With the same feather’s touch, he traced the bruises. “It’s nothing …” His lips replaced his fingers, kissing my neck. “You’re fine. Right?”

I wanted to believe him. Could denial become truth if we just believed hard enough?

“I’m fine,” I murmured, closing my eyes.

“Want me to show you how much I missed you?” he whispered next to my ear.

Was he asking me for permission? Governor Graham demanded me. Pre-marriage, pre-Governor Graham asked … begged me to surrender to him.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Wow!!! Rina Kent blew my mind with All The Lies! She completely left me speechless!!! I was hooked from the very first page!

Reina Ellis is involved in an incident in the beginning of the book that leaves her with memory loss. She isn’t sure who she is. The more she finds out about herself before the accident, the less she likes that person. She was beautiful and popular, but she was also full of darkness and evil. Not someone whom people liked or respected. People reacted to her out of fear and hate. One person who falls into the category of “hating Reina” was her fiance, Asher. 

Asher is also full of darkness,and I couldn’t tell whether he had feelings for her or hated her. One thing is certain, and it doesn’t take it long to see that she has done something to make him want payback. As the story progresses, hints are dropped that show the readers what it is. 

Speaking of the story, it moves quite rapidly, so you should buckle up because it is a wild ride full of twists. The chemistry between Reina and Asher is sizzling. As much as the book is about their relationship, it’s also about mystery, darkness, and redemption. Reina isn’t quite sure who she is. Those around her aren’t quite sure who she is because of the positive changes she is making in her life. I am still not quite sure who Reina really is. That is the beauty of the book. What are the lies and what is the truth? The cliffhanger was unlike anything I have ever read before. It didn’t make me angry…it just left me wanting more!!!! Book 2 can’t release soon enough!!!!!

EXCERPT

 

“Why do you hate me so much?” If you do, why the hell are you engaged to me?

“Might have to do with how much of a bitch you are.”

“Oh, I’m sorry.” I smile. “Did I steal your title, asshole?”

He pauses, head tilting to the side. “What did you just call me?”

“A-S-S-H-O-L-E.” I continue smiling, taunting him. “Do you want me to spell it for you again—”

My words cut off when he’s at my face, kneeling on the bed in front of me. His hand wraps around my throat like a shackle. He’s not squeezing, but the firm grip is enough to restrict my air supply and my thoughts.

A frightening chill forms goose bumps along my skin as I stare at his darkened, merciless eyes.

The sense of bravery I gained a few seconds ago evaporates into thin air. My shoulder blades snap together as if telling me I should be scared.

This is a scary person.

He’s fucking terrifying.

The need to run away from him hits me again, clawing under my skin and pumping in my blood.

“You seem to be taking your amnesia game way too seriously, so let me remind you of how it goes.” His thumb rubs my jaw like a lover’s caress when in fact it’s a Grim Reaper’s kiss.

It’s cold.

Everything about him is freezing.

My pulse roars in my ears like a distant thunderstorm.

He’s invading my space like a natural disaster, impossible to stop or prevent.

Still, I manage to choke words out. “You think this is a game? What type of person pretends to have lost their memories?”

“The type who doesn’t want people to know what they’ve done.”

“What I’ve done?”

“Shhh. Don’t talk.” He presses his thumb to my lips, and I can’t help the pulses taking flight under my skin. “When I speak, you listen.”

I met Marcus at a crematorium.

That should have been my first clue to keep away.

He was nothing I wanted. Yet, everything I needed.

He was dark, dangerous.

And I couldn’t stay away.

Even when I wanted to.

We made a deal—just our bodies.

But lines got blurred.

I asked for more than one night – I ended up asking for forever.

What a mistake that was.

What a mistake he was.

Sometimes love burns.

And sometimes kisses and lies is all you get.

Wow!!! What a dark, addictive read! I started reading this book on a trip. Before I knew it, we had arrived at our destination, and I had finished the book!!!! 

I was intrigued from the very beginning. I thought the way Smith began the book was a stroke of genius. I knew it was going to be different from anything I had read, and she certainly didn’t disappoint me. She far exceeded my expectations!!!! 

Everything about the book was unexpected…the storyline, the romance, and the characters. Rochelle and Marcus meet, of all places, at a crematorium. She feels this pull toward him that she can’t explain. He certainly isn’t the type of guy she is normally attracted to. To say opposites attract would be an understatement. She is from a very different world than he is, yet they feel this attraction they can’t explain. Neither of them is expecting a HEA. She is using him to numb the pain of loss she feels. She is his new addiction–she actually stirs something in his cold, unfeeling heart. Somehow, something temporary is moving might just be moving toward something more lasting and real. 

The romance is pretty steamy! The chemistry is explosive…like TNT getting ready to explode! Anyone in their path should take caution!!! Even though the relationship starts as something full of lust, feelings start creeping in! Something neither expected or even knew they wanted!

The characters…WOW! Rochelle’s heart is breaking. She has lost several people she loves, but she is a tough cookie. However, those losses have affected her deeply. A little part of her has dying day by day.

“I was breaking when I met him, and I broke even more each day thereafter. Marcus didn’t get the best part of me, and I did nothing to repair that.”  

Both characters were complex, but Marcus…there aren’t any words to adequately describe him. He is consumed by darkness, and in any other book and any other author’s hands, he would have just creeped me out. However, in Smith’s hands, she made me fall head over heels with him. In that darkness, Rochelle gives him a little light that just might help him come out of the dark cave he has been in most of his life. 

I enjoy a book in which characters grow and change, and these two did grow and change somewhat. I loved the ending of this book…it was the right ending for them. They grew and matured, yet they didn’t change the core of the person they were created to be. These two are the type of characters I want to come back and see. I’m not a huge, huge fan of dark romance, but Smith, who is a new author to me, may just coax me deeper into the dark, anti-hero romance!!!!!
