Caulk Tease by Megan Green & Alexandria Bishop Release Blitz with Review

14 Jun

 

Title: Caulk Tease
Series: BrookStone Partners #1
Authors: Megan Green & Alexandria Bishop
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 14, 2019
Blurb
Caulk Tease /ˈkäkˌtēz/: A woman who knows her way around a power tool, and isn’t afraid to use it.
Six weeks ago I was broke, alone, and about to be homeless.

Six weeks ago I had zero intention of moving back to Winchester, Colorado—aka Mayberry on crack.

Six weeks ago a one-night stand had never crossed my mind.

Now?

I threw that all out the window for him. He’s tall, dark, and handsome—with a body made for sin. Hard, fast, and dirty bar bathroom sex has to be experienced at least once, right?

It’s only my luck he’s also my boss and best friend’s older brother.

Barrett Brooks doesn’t believe a woman belongs on a construction site, especially with his company on the line. I’ll prove him wrong—let’s just hope I don’t fall back into bed with him in the process.

Francesca M. Healy

Loved this story!!

Monroe has had a hard life. Almost everyone she has ever been close to has left her or passed away. When she falls on hard times, she has nowhere to turn except an old high school friend. Now, she has a job as a foreman on a construction site and a place to sleep, it might be a shady motel, but it will do until she is back on her feet.

Barrett has had a pretty easy life but he is determined to make a name for himself as one of the owners of a construction company. Things aren’t going according to plan on a major project and when his brother says he has someone that can help them out, Barrett trusts that he’s right. Barrett doesn’t know what to think of a female being a foreman on a construction job and figures this project is doomed.

Monroe is prepared to do battle with Barrett if necessary to prove herself worthy of this job. But it’s a thin line between love and hate and there is plenty of sparks between Monroe and Barrett to keep things hot! Will these two be able to work together to get the job done and come out on the other side as more than enemies?

I loved this book so much! This book has it all – fantastic main characters, lots of humor, witty banter, tons of chemistry and an all-around phenomenal story. I loved the other characters as well and can’t wait to read the next book by these 2 authors in this series!

Highly recommend!

This is Crazy (This Is Series #1) by Natasha Madison Release Blast with Review

11 Jun

 

 

From the best selling series, Something So comes the spin-off This
is…
 
Zara Stone
 
All my life, I’ve said I will never date a hockey player. I know
better because I’ve seen and lived it all. My father is a hockey god, my
brother is the captain of the most successful NHL team in the world, and my
brother-in-law also plays in the league. Their lives are complicated, so I went
in the opposite direction.
 
I fell in love with a scholar. But instead of proposing marriage,
he broke up with me.
 
Three months later, I saw his engagement picture on Instagram. I
couldn’t let him get away with that. No, it didn’t matter what, I was going to
make that man see that I did not need him.
Evan Richards
 
I was in the running to pass my point record from last year, ready
to claim the number one spot in the league. On top of my game, I was riding my
career high wave.
 
Then, Hockey’s Princess, Zara Stone tweeted me. She wanted me to
crash her ex’s wedding.
 
The worst that could happen? A PR nightmare. The best? A fun night
with a beautiful woman.
 
It started out as a game—something I’m good at. Her crazy idea
twisted into something I wasn’t looking for, something neither of us wanted.
When push comes to shove, one thing runs through my mind:

 

This is Crazy. Also, this is crazy right.
Add a heading (1)

 

Can I just say how much I adore Natasha Madison??? She continues to blow me away with her storytelling talent!!!! This is Crazy was one of those rare books that kept me up way past my bedtime to finish!

I fell in love immediately with Zara and Evan. The book opens with Zara expecting an engagement, but what she got was dumped!!! Of course, no other woman was involved, right? That doesn’t ring quite true when she sees her ex’s engagement picture on Instagram. With a couple of drinks in her system, she decides to show him she is completely over him. So, she tweets his hero, hockey phenom, Evan Richards, and asks him to help her crash “said ex’s wedding.” He’s intrigued and accepts. What starts as something casual turns into something more…maybe even a little crazy!!!!

For a book to be really fabulous to me, it has to have a great storyline and great characters. Madison exceeded my expectations in both areas!!!! I felt like I knew both Zara and Evan! Zara is beautiful and sassy, yet she has a heart of gold. Evan is an alpha male, yet he respects Zara! He protects her, but he doesn’t try to control her. They were perfect for one another.

In addition, Madison also created a great cast of secondary characters!!! I loved both Zara and Evan’s families!!!! Can I just mention that two of my favorite characters were Evan’s labs, Lilo and Stitch. I have two labs myself, and Madison really captures their fun and loving nature.

The storyline was paced perfectly. Yes, these two fall pretty quickly for each other, but I felt like Madison realistically captured their connection, and the title accurately describes how the two feel about each other.

There are challenges to their relationship. Her brothers are on opposing hockey teams and are pretty protective of their sister. She lives in New York, and he lives in Dallas, TX. His sister is pretty protective of him as well! Yet, I loved watching this couple fall madly and crazy in love with one another.

The icing on the cake was that we didn’t just get one epilogue but two. Madison sets us up quite nicely for the next book in the series. I can’t wait to get Zoe’s story!!!! If you love a great hockey romance with some steam and sweetness, you can’t go wrong with this one!!!!

In the power struggle between two elite groups, one feisty girl will bring them to their knees…

Cruel Intentions, an all-new dark, high school bully romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available now!

CruelIntentions_ecover Final Final.jpg

Life is a cruel game where only the most ruthless survive. It’s a truth my mother rebelled against, and she paid for it with her life. Now, I play their game. Publicly accepting the destiny that lies in wait for me when I turn eighteen.

But, behind closed doors, I plot my escape.

Trent, Charlie, and my twin, Drew, rule the hallways of Rydeville High with arrogance and an iron fist. I execute my role perfectly, hating every second, but they never let me forget my place in this world.

Everyone obeys the rules. They have for generations. Because our families have always been in control.

Until Cam, Sawyer, and Jackson show up. Throwing their new money around. Challenging the status quo. Setting hearts racing with their gorgeous faces, hot bodies, and bad boy attitudes.

Battle lines are drawn. Sides are taken. And I’m trapped in the middle, because I made a mistake one fateful night when I gave my V-card to a stranger in a blatant F you to my fiancé.

I thought it was the one thing I owned. A precious memory to carry me through each dark day.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Because the stranger was Camden Marshall, leader of the new elite and my perpetual tormenter. He hates me with a passion unrivalled, and he won’t be the only one. Fire will rain down if the truth is revealed, threatening alliances, and the power struggle will turn vicious.

My life will hang in the balance.

But I’ll be ready, and I’m not going down without a fight.

The Confession (The Promise Series #7) by Kate Benson Blog Tour with Review

8 Jun
Title: The Confession
Author: Kate Benson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Sean Benson at NativeSon Designs
Publication Date: May 27th, 2019
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s Reviews & PR

Blurb:

Drake
They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
What they don’t tell you is that it’s also drenched in regret.
The moment she walked away, a piece of my soul went with her.
My heart hasn’t beat the same since.
I know it won’t until I find her.
I brought her back from the dead once.
Now I need her to return the favor.
Analise
Being broken is never easy.
It’s even harder when it comes at the hands of the one you love.
The weight took my breath, the need to flee became instinctual.
How do you stay when paradise is lost?
How do you breathe when your heart stops beating?
Karma doesn’t come quietly.
Let’s hope absolution is a different story.
The confession is long overdue.
Add a heading (1)

Top Read of 2019 and All-Time Favorite Read 

 

“Sometimes you have to lose yourself to find your way back home.”

I only have one word to describe The Confession by Kate Benson…”INCREDIBLE.”  Benson’s talent truly shines in every page throughout the book!
The Confession picks up right where the previous book, The Sacrifice, ended. Drake and Analise are broken, and it will take everything they have within themselves to find their way back to one another. Along the way, we discover what is going on in the lives of those that love Ana and Drake. Because what has occurred between Ana and Drake affects Chase, Sophie, Jack, and Jenna.
I can always count on Benson to evoke emotions from me, but she truly outdid herself in this one. My heart was broken because her characters have become like family to me. I have been invested in them since I read The Promise years ago. The journey each of them has taken hasn’t always been an easy one, but I have certainly enjoyed taking the ride with them.
The book is told from several POVs with each character having their own story to tell. I find it amazing that each one involves a confession of sorts. While we get a look into each of their lives, it never takes away from the fact that this is Drake and Analise’s story. What they are enduring truly impacts the others and the decisions and views they have on life.
Benson’s writing is so unique in that she is a wonderful storyteller and gives you an incredible book, but her writing is like poetry in the way she writes. She utilizes all sorts of imagery that connects me with the storyline and the characters. The characters do endure obstacles and hurt at times, yet she somehow turns it into such a beautiful story. If you haven’t discovered the gem that is Kate Benson, you really need to read her novels. She never disappoints, and I can’t wait to see what is in store for the Ana, Drake, Sophie, Chase, Jack, Jenna, and even Matt because there were surprises along the way!!!!




 

Kate Benson was raised in Texas and currently resides in central Florida with her husband and their growing army of fur minions.

She learned to read at the age of four and has been hooked ever since. She credits her passion for literature to her mother, her love of story-telling to her father and her unwavering faith in happily-ever-after’s to her husband, Sean.
Some of her favorite things include rainy days, loud music, superhero movies, hot tea and of course, lazy afternoons with a great book.
To find out more about Kate, her work or to just say hello, she loves hearing from her readers and can be found on social media.

The Second Coming by Carrie Aarons

Available Now | Rogue Academy, #1

Read it for FREE in KindleUnlimited: mybook.to/TheSecondComingAMZ

 

Book Blurb:

They call him the second coming.
Of honor for British football.
Of God in an athlete’s body.
Of every English woman’s fantasy.

Jude Davies is my country’s prodigy on the pitch. More famous than the nobility in Buckingham Palace, he and his merry band of scoundrels rule the Rogue Football Academy and the London nightlife scene alike.

And now, he’s aiming his well-honed set of skills directly at me. His devilish charm is lethal, but with the tragic hand life has dealt me, distractions like him aren’t an option.

Plus, we’re only playing a game. One of convenience, where he needs me to save his reputation, and I need his money to save the one person I love.

Until he wraps me around that immoral finger.
Until I crave that reckless, wild high he provides.
Until I hope for a future that will never happen.

That’s the thing about going toe-to-toe with the next football legend. He’s faster, stronger, and will destroy me every time.

 

Add a heading (1)

The Second Coming by Carrie Aarons is the first book in her Rogue Academy series, and if this book is any indication, she has a hit series on her hands!!!!

Jude is considered the second coming for British football. He is only 20, but he has spent the majority of his life at the Rogue Football Academy. Now, he is on the cusp of becoming a legend, yet he can’t seem to keep his personal life on track. There are lots of women and partying which keeps him in the tabloids. Aria works on the school grounds sewing the uniforms and as a janitor at night. These two should never have even entered the same atmosphere, but they do and something magical happens that will forever change their lives.

Jude is one of those characters that I love to hate, in the beginning. He is arrogant and a loose cannon. Women do whatever he asks of them, except Aria. She is the complete opposite of Jude. It appears that he loves the attention he gets, Aria avoids attention at all costs.

In the beginning, Jude is pursuing Aria to get her in his bed and out of his mind. She puts the brakes on that very quickly. He comes to admire her for that. She keeps him on his toes, and as she gets to know him better, she discovers there is a lot more to Jude than the public knows. Underneath that arrogant, cocky mask is loyalty and love.

While the romantic part of the book gave me butterflies, it was the underlying story that got to my heart. Carrie Aarons always has a deeper meaning in her books, and this one is no exception. This one shows her readers a darker side to fame. Jude had something devastating happen to him, but he had two brothers to take care of. The media molded him into the arrogant athlete he became. The pressure of taking care of his family and being in the spotlight took its toll on him, but Aria made him a believer in love again. His cold heart started melting when he met her. In turn, he helped her with her trust issues. If you love a book about hope, family, friendship, and love with a bit of spice thrown in, give this book a try! I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Edie Browne’s Cottage by the Sea by Jane Linfoot Blog Tour with Review

Edie Brownes Cottage By The Sea

Edie Browne’s Cottage by the Sea

by Jane Linfoot 

Synopsis:

Those who don’t jump will never fly…

Hurtling through the sky was supposed to be Edie Browne’s flight of independence. But when she falls head over champagne bucket while celebrating her successful landing, her life is changed in an instant. 
 
But starting over has its benefits, and as Edie relearns the basics under the watchful eye of her Aunty Josie and an entire Cornish village of new friends and neighbours, she finds love and joy she never could have imagined in the unlikeliest of places… 

Come home to St Aidan and Periwinkle Cottage for a romance full of love, laughter and friends for life!

 

Add a heading (5)

 

I knew I was going to enjoy this book and love the main character from the very first pages of the book. Edie had just gotten out of a relationship and was beginning a new job and a new flat. To cap this off, she decided to skydive. The skydive was her epic achievement. However, her life is changed in an instant, and she is on a journey that she never anticipated.

 

Edie returns to her Cornish village determined to get her life back. She thinks this will help her begin her life anew again. Little did she realize it, but it would be the start of a whole new life, one far better than she ever imagined.  She might finally find the happiness she has been looking for, and she might possibly find true love in the process!

 

I loved the characters as well as the writing. I could tell Edie was a fighter from the beginning. Come on…this is a woman who displayed her independence by jumping out of an airplane. I’m certainly not that brave. When she had her stroke, she worked hard and diligently to reclaim her life. If that isn’t some kind of heroine, I don’t know what is. If ever an individual deserved a HEA, it was her. So, seeing her fall in love and find someone worthy of her was just icing on the cake.

 

In addition, I loved the other characters as well. They have their own stories to tell, and the author accomplishes that through Edie’s voice. By the way, I thought that was brilliant.

 

It is very well-written book, and I love the author’s style of writing. It really pulled me into the story through her descriptions. I felt like I was everywhere Edie was, from the skydiving to the beautiful Cornish village!!!! I also liked the way she began each chapter with the date, and the number of days since her accident and her epic achievement which meant so much in her recovery. Jane Linfoot tied that up quite nicely in the very beginning of the book with her definitions of epic and achievements. That really is the crux of the book…epic achievements and their place in our lives.

 

If you like your romance with laughter and friendship mixed in, not to mention an absolutely beautiful setting, you don’t want to miss reading Edie Browne’s Cottage by the Sea!!! It’s a perfect summer read!!!!!

Author Bio 

Edie Browne - Author Photo (1)

Jane Linfoot is a best selling author, who lives in a muddy cottage, up a steep hill in Derbyshire, with her family, their pets, and an astonishing number of spiders. Although she loves seeing cow noses over the garden wall, she’s happy she can walk to a supermarket.

Jane grew up in North Yorkshire where she spent a lot of her childhood avoiding horizontal gales blowing off the sea, and wrote her first book by accident, while working as an architect, and renovating country houses. While she loves to write feelgood books that let readers escape, she’s always surprised to hear her stories make people laugh, admits to (occasionally) crying as she writes, and credits her characters for creating their own storylines.

Jane’s garden would be less brambly if she wasn’t on Facebook and Twitter so often. On days when she wants to be really scared, she rides a tandem.

Her latest books include a series of stand-alone novels, based around a seaside wedding shop in Cornwall. Cupcakes and Confetti – The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea, Sequins and Snowflakes – Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop, and Bunting and Bouquets – Summer at the Little Wedding Shop, and most recently, The Little Cornish Kitchen. These are all published by Harper Impulse, an imprint of Harper Collins.
