Rate a Date (Dating #5) by Monica Murphy Blog Tour with Review & Excerpt

 

The all new standalone in the Dating series by New York Times Bestselling author Monica Murphy is LIVE!

Eleanor Murray is tired.

Tired of going on awkward dates. Tired of meeting men who just aren’t that into her. Tired of being set up on blind dates by her well-meaning friends.

She is a believer of true love, of finding that happily ever after, and she wants it. She deserves it. But at the rate she’s going, she’s pretty sure it’s never going to happen.

Until a friend creates a profile for Eleanor on a new dating app. At first, she’s reluctant. Dating apps aren’t the way to finding true love, are they? But then she makes a connection on Rate a Date, and this gorgeous, confident guy almost seems too good to be true…

Mitch Anderson has a secret. 

He’s just moved to Las Vegas for his high profile job and after years of playing the field, he’s looking for a serious relationship. He wants to find a woman who likes him for who he is, not what he does. Meeting Eleanor on the dating app, he’s intrigued. Meeting her in real life while she’s in town for a bachelorette weekend, he completely falls for her. Now he’s in way over his head.

Their chemistry is combustible. They can’t keep their hands off each other. But will Eleanor forgive him when she finds out who he really is?

 




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

 

What a perfect combination of sweet and sexy!!! I was addicted to Eleanor and Mitch!!!

 

Eleanor is tired of dating men that don’t get her. Her friends try to help with blind dates, but they all end the same. She isn’t happy when her friend, Kelsey, sets up a dating profile on Rate a Date app. However, she reluctantly agrees. She isn’t expecting that this will completely change the course of her life. 

 

Mitch is used to attention. He is a famous defensive lineman for the Raiders. He can have pretty much anything he wants, and what he wants is a real relationship with someone. Eleanor’s profile catches his attention right way. He is smitten, and he wants nothing more than to get to know her, but he keeps one very important thing a secret….who he really is and what he does for a living. Yeah, as you might think, this one is going to come back and bite him!!!

 

Can I just say I adored both Eleanor and Mitch!!! They are so great together. He appreciates who she is and finds her “awkwardness” one of the most adorable qualities she possesses. He sees her beauty both inside and outside. 

 

Mitch is tired of the meaningless relationships. He wants a woman who wants him for who he is, as he said, “good ol’ boring Mitch,” not Mitch the defensive lineman. It is that sweet boring ol’ Mitch that Eleanor falls for. However, the dark shadow of his lie is hovering over them.

 

The chemistry between them is electric. There are some love scenes that made my heart race and made me feel butterflies in my stomach. There are also some really tender moments between them too. Some angst is present yet it doesn’t consume the whole story! 

 

Be prepared to have your heart stolen by this cute, sexy couple. It is always fantastic to catch up with characters from earlier books. If sweet and sexy is what you like, you can’t get better than this book and honestly, the whole series!!!!

Excerpt:

“You’re just saying that.”

“Not really,” I tell her truthfully. “You’re gorgeous.”

“Mitch.” She draws my name out, like she’s all embarrassed. “You really think so?”

“Oh, I know so.” I lean back, taking her in. “I can’t wait to meet you in person this weekend.”

“Wait a minute. You’re not some secret serial killer, are you?” She asks this with such seriousness, I start to laugh all over again.

“Even if I was, do you think I’d tell you?” I grin, unable to contain it. “I’d keep it a secret, right?”

“True.” She smiles. Laughs a little. “It’s just…my friends don’t want me to meet you by myself. They want to come with me.”

“Swear to God, I’m not a serial killer, Eleanor,” I say solemnly, holding my hand up and making the peace sign. “Scout’s honor.”

“That’s not what you do when you say scout’s honor,” she says quickly. Little Miss Smartypants. “You do your fingers like this.” She holds up her hand, the first three fingers up and pressed close together.

“How do you know that? Were you a secret Boy Scout? Have a brother who was one?”

“I, um, dated a guy who was an Eagle Scout.” Her expression turns sheepish. “He was really into the Boy Scouts.”

“Was that in high school?”

“Uh. No. College.”

I’m frowning. “College?”

“Well, he got his Eagle Scout status his senior year, but was still involved with the scouts through college. And—beyond.” She presses her hand against her forehead and briefly closes her eyes. “Fine, I went out with him after he graduated college. I never really went to college. I went to beauty school.” She drops her hand, sending me a meaningful look.

“So you went out with a guy who was still excited about being an Eagle Scout…and he was a grown man.” I start to laugh. “Sounds fun.”

“I’ve not had the greatest luck when it comes to dating guys,” she admits.

“Oh yeah?” I’m rubbing my chin again, contemplating her. Wondering what the hell is wrong with all the men in her life that they don’t know how to treat her.

And then I realize how lucky I am that they all blew it so now I have my chance.

“Yeah. I’m just—I don’t pick well. And I always get really awkward around guys.” She rolls her eyes. “I can say really dumb things. Or I just act all nervous and weird. I start to ramble.”

“Like now?”

“Yes.” She laughs. “Like now. I’m rambling. I’m totally rambling and you don’t look bored, so I take that as a good sign.”

“I think the rambling thing is cute. I like your awkwardness.”

“Wait until you see it in person.”

“I can’t wait to see you in person,” I tell her with a sly smile, making her blush. “I can’t wait to give you a hug. See what you smell like.”

“Mitch.” Her cheeks look on fire.

“What? I’m serious. You wear perfume?”

“Of course.”

“Use scented shampoo?”

“Duh. I’m a hairstylist.”

“Then I can’t wait to see how all those scents mix and create the essence of you.” Oooh, that was a good one. I didn’t even mean to say that. It just spilled out of my mouth.

“Aw, you’re being so sweet.” She sends me a heated glance. “Kind of sexy.”

“You think me talking about how you smell is sexy?”

“Honestly, Mitch? I think everything about you is sexy,” she says with a little sigh, right before she claps her hand over her mouth. “I probably shouldn’t have said that.” Her voice is muffled behind her palm.

“I love that you said that,” I say, warming up to this conversation big time. “I think you’re pretty fucking sexy too, Eleanor.” Hesitating, I wonder if I should tell her what I did in the shower.

Maybe not.

“Have you ever sexted with someone before?” she asks, sounding genuinely curious.

“I guess.” I shrug, not really wanting to answer her. Makes me feel like a slimy shit to admit that yes, I have. Lots of times. “Sort of. I’ve made plenty of  booty call messages. DTF, stuff like that.”

She frowns. “DTF?”

“Down to fuck.”

Oh.” Her eyes are wide. Her mouth is formed in this perfect O. “Oh.”

“Back when I wasn’t big on relationships,” I add. “But I’ve changed.”

“You have?”

“Yeah. I’m looking for a special girl.”

“Really?”

“I want a long-term relationship.”

“It’s too bad you’re moving,” she says, sounding sad.

I don’t want to focus on that right now. I don’t even know if this girl is the one. She has great potential. But we need to meet in person first. Test it out.

“We’ll see each other this weekend,” I remind her.

“I know!” Her face brightens. “And I’m excited.”

“So am I, Eleanor.”

So am I.

New Review: Hard Pass (Trophy Boyfriends #1) by Sara Ney

Release Date: June 16
“Hard Pass.”

That’s what the last girl I slept with said when she got her first sober glimpse of me. She laughed, walked out of my penthouse—and I never saw her again. It doesn’t matter that I’m a rich, professional athlete; what mattered was my face. 

 

 



Beauty might only be skin deep for some—but I know better.

 

 

 

 

“Pay Up.”

 

That’s what the last girl I spoke to said over the phone when I made her an offer she couldn’t refuse. Desperate to sell a set of rare baseball cards, she’s clever and entertaining. I’m instantly smitten, but nowhere ready to reveal myself. Thank god she has no idea who I am—or what I look like.

 

 
I’m a professional athlete–how hard can playing the love game be?



Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Oh my gosh!!!! This book right here is why I ADORE Sara Ney!!!! 

It had all the elements I have come to love about her….great characters, romance to make you swoon, and Ney’s trademark sense of humor.

I LOVED Noah and Miranda. Noah is a professional baseball player. He is young and already a huge success. Unlike his teammates, he is in it strictly for the game…not the money, women, or the attention. In fact, he hates the attention. He also doesn’t have the best self-esteem because of his past with females. Some weren’t very kind to him. It broke my heart sometimes because he didn’t see how really special he was. Fortunately, Miranda does show him how special he is. She is like a breath of fresh air. Like Noah, she is determined to succeed. I loved that she made him smile and forget about his self-confidence issues. This girl had the best sense of humor EVER!!!!!

Ney knows how to write a romance that gives you butterflies and warms your heart. The way that these two first meet was sweet and entertaining. From their first text messages, I could feel the chemistry between them. As they get to know one another, the chemistry just builds. It was the perfect combination of steam and sweetness. 

What makes Ney’s books so good is that her sense of humor comes through in her characters. The banter between Noah and Miranda was hysterical, and Noah’s friend, Wallace, just made the book. The friendship between him and Noah was the icing on the cake!!! I really, really hope he gets a chance to share his story with us. 

If you are looking for a quick read that you will finish in no time, you can’t get any better than this one!!!!

New Review: Sweet Spot by Rebecca Jenshak

Sweet Spot by Rebecca Jenshak is LIVE and FREE in KU!

A hot-headed college golfer falls for her swing coach in this fun and sexy sports romance.

Lincoln Reeves may be a pro golfer and revered swing coach, but when I meet him, he is just one more person telling me I’m not good enough.
So, I do what any girl in my position would do. I tell him to get lost and take his arrogant, annoying smirk with him. I never expect to see him again. I certainly don’t expect to run into him that same night after one too many tequila shots.
Turns out that he’s kind of a big deal. Okay, fine, a really big deal. In fact, he might be the one person who can take my game to the next level.
Convincing him to help will be difficult.
Not throwing my club at his handsome face when he makes me work harder than I thought humanly possible will be excruciating.
But not falling for him will be the hardest thing of all.

What a great slow burn, age-gap sports romance!!!!

I’m a huge fan of sports romance, and I fell in love with this one. It had a great plot, great characters, and the romance struck the perfect combination of sweet and sexy!

Keira is a talented athlete, but her college golf coach doesn’t see it. He just wants results and is only too happy to reap the attention when his athletes are performing well. When Keira doesn’t perform like her coach wants, he ignores her. Enter Lincoln Reeves…a pro golfer and well-respected swing coach. He offers her some advice…only she sees it as criticism. Some misunderstandings ensue, but once those are resolved, Lincoln becomes the one who can take her on to the next level. It is clear from the beginning these two have some intense chemistry. The line between coach and athlete begins to blur…..

I really thought the plot was great and was fast moving even though the romance was a slow burn one. This was one of those books that I was able to finish in one sitting!!! Part of the reason it was such a great read was because of the characters of Keira and Lincoln. I loved the fact that it wasn’t only the male that was the athlete….it was the female. Keira was so relatable. She was incredibly talented, but she dealt with some self-confidence issues, no thanks to her jerk college coach. Lincoln was so supportive of her, and he never cared that she was in the spotlight. His pride leapt off the pages. 

Like I said, this was a slow-burn romance. The chemistry was there, but there were some things working against them….their age gap. However, they were so similar that I forgot about it unless it was referenced in the book. Lincoln was wary of romance because of his work life. He was driven to make his business a success, and I liked that Keira was showing him to have more of a balance. Like I said, these two were perfect together. 

I have read Rebecca Jenshak before, and she just keeps getting better with each book. On a side note, Lincoln’s grandmother could have her own book! What a character!!!!

New Review: Coach Me by Shanora Williams

 

Release Date: May 14
 
When I met Amber Lakes, I had no idea that she’d become a shining star in my dark, miserable life.
 
Her smile was never supposed to warm my heart, and the sight of her tears was never supposed to make me want to hunt down the person who’d caused them.
 
We were never supposed to touch, or kiss, or do so many dirty things on campus that I knew could jeopardize my career…
 
None of it was supposed to happen because she’s the student—my athlete—and I’m her college track coach.
 
I could lose everything by being with her, but I’ve fallen too damn hard, and despite how big the risks are, it’s too late to turn back now. 



 

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Coach Me by Shanora Williams was an emotional and sexy read!!!! It was one of those books that I was able to finish in one sitting. 

Amber and Joaquin were a dynamic couple, although on the surface, I wouldn’t put them together. Two glaring reasons…he is older than her, and he is her track coach. Thank goodness, I was completely wrong. The two of them actually have quite a great deal in common. Amber comes to an Ivy League school on scholarship as the phenom track star, but what she gets is the opposite of star treatment. She gets ignorance, intolerance, and meanness because she is the only black girl on the track team. Joaquin has dealt with the same issues growing up and as an adult as well. This cements the bond they form.

Both of them are determined and strong. In the beginning, Amber is shocked and her spirit is broken down because of the treatment she receives from some of her teammates, but not all of them. She actually meets some pretty amazing girls Joaquin is instrumental in getting her to stay. The way in which this young girl deals with it is mature beyond her years. She is a class act. 

Their love story is full of angst, major steam, but is also really sweet. Joaquin was the best. He always put Amber’s needs first, and he was just so unselfish. Despite their age differences and the forbidden romance, the two worked together perfectly. 

I am a first time reader to Shanora Williams, and I’m IMPRESSED!!! She definitely knows how to write a wonderfully, addictive story. I liked the fact that this wasn’t just a romance. The story of discrimination is as old as time, but it is still relevant today, and she addresses with such wonderful emotion, sensitivity, and class. I can’t wait to read more from this very talented writer!!!!

New Review: Looking to Score by CoraLee June & Carrie Gray

🔥🔥 HOT NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Looking to Score by CoraLee June and Carrie Gray is LIVE and FREE with KU!

Looking to Score is like the book equivalent of comfort food- goes down easy and leaves you feeling full and content. This book is funny, charming, heart-warming, insanely clever, and JUST what we need. I simply LOVED it and could not put it down.” ~The Romantic Rush Blog

He’s like literally the worst.

Oakley Davis is the star running back at our University, and the reason I’ve broken my vow to avoid the college party scene. Thanks to a mixup with my advisor, I’m now serving my Public Relations internship as a glorified babysitter to the party-hard football players.

Specifically, Oakley.

He’s impossible to manage. His Instagram is full of half-naked, drunk photos and he’d rather attend parties than practice. His brand needs some serious work, and when he’s not driving me insane, he’s sleeping his way through the entire female population.

But I’m determined. I have plans to graduate a semester early and nothing or no one will get in my way. I’m a Virgo, after all. Oakley Davis might be a privileged, cocky, football star, but I’m Amanda Matthews; and I’ll do whatever it takes to get my A.

I have to make sure I don’t end up falling in love with the idiot, first.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Oh my gosh…this is an addicting read!!! I spent another late night finishing another great book! Not only was it a fantastic romance full of chemistry and swoonworthy moments, it was also a story about second chances and learning from your mistakes. 

“We can’t give our mistakes all our energy forever.” ~Amanda’s  mother~

Amanda has worked hard the past year to make changes to her life, and she is determined to get her A, her internship, and finish college early. Too bad the internship she was hoping for fell through and now she is stuck with Oakley Davis, the running back for the football team and a local celebrity. He is also trouble with a capital “T.” It  will take everything she has to clean up his image.

Oakley was a man you noticed whenever you walked into the room. He commanded it. 

“It wasn’t his signature dark hair or the way he towered over everyone else that made him stand out–though his classically handsome appearance helped–it was his very essence, his energy. He had this carefree power about him that was intoxicating to watch.” ~Amanda~

Despite the charisma and good looks, he also had a huge ego. The way girls fell all over him just fanned that flame. Amanda is determined not to fall under his spell, despite the butterflies he gives her. She has a job to do, and she plans on doing it! As she gets to know a softer side to him, her job becomes even harder. In addition to his sex appeal and sense of humor, she discovers he is also an expert flower arranger….who in the world could resist that?????

When Oakley first sees Amanda, he isn’t impressed, especially when she takes over all of his social media accounts. He sees her as uptight with no idea of what fun is! The way he pushes her buttons had me laughing hysterically!!! She realizes that there is more to Oakley than meets the eye, and he realizes she does have a heart beating in that uptight body. I enjoyed watching them become friends as they fell in love with each other. 

Both of them have made mistakes in their past, and each is doing what they can to learn from it and move forward. Oakley showed Amanda that she is a worthy person, beautiful both inside and out, and he helped her find self-confidence in herself. He also helped her relax and find the fun in life again. In turn, she showed him that she loved him because of who he was as a person, not the star football player. It was one of those books that just made me sigh in delight when I finished the last page. 

These two writers are new to me, and I am so glad I discovered them. I can’t wait to read more from the both of them.

I have always loved to read. In kindergarten, I was the weird kid sitting in the reading nook by myself instead of trying to get more snacks. I’m excited to be putting my own voice on the page and watching a story I helped create come to life. I still love to read, but I also really like snacks.

I grew up in Chicago but recently moved back to the Dallas area where I live with my husband and son.

I have my Bachelor of Science in Biology. I spent a year researching chimpanzees and gorillas while I was in Chicago and then I spent another two months on a chimpanzee sanctuary trying to convince headstrong chimps to cooperate. Pro tip – grapes are a pretty hot bargaining tool. They work wonders with my toddler too.

Convincing him to help will be difficult.

Not throwing my club at his handsome face when he makes me work harder than I thought humanly possible will be excruciating.

But not falling for him will be the hardest thing of all.

SWEET SPOT IS A STANDALONE SPORTS ROMANCE SET IN THE VALLEY U WORLD.

Hard Pass by Sara Ney Cover Reveal with Pre-Order Links

 
“Hard pass.”




That’s what the last girl I slept with said when she got her first sober glimpse of me. She laughed, walked out of my penthouse—and I never saw her again. It doesn’t matter that I’m a rich, professional athlete; what mattered was my face. 



 

 

Beauty might only be skin deep for some—but I know better.

 

 

 

 

“Pay up.” 

 

 

 

 

That’s what the last girl I spoke to said over the phone when I made her an offer she couldn’t refuse. Desperate to sell a set of rare baseball cards, she’s clever and entertaining. I’m instantly smitten, but nowhere ready to reveal myself. Thank god she has no idea who I am—or what I look like.

 

 
I’m a professional athlete–how hard can playing the love game be?

Wild for You

About the Book

 

He’s growly. Grumpy. Stubborn.

And now, my new roommate.

Walking away from my disastrous last relationship was an easy decision, but moving in with a friend-of-a-friend hockey star who’s rarely home? Not quite as simple, because Grant makes me feel things even I don’t understand.

One thing’s for certain, though. I definitely shouldn’t have crawled into his bed that night.

  • • •

There’s a brightness to her eyes I can’t seem to look away from.

She’s beautiful. Smart. Tempting.

And a little fragile.

I’ve never been anyone’s knight in shining armor, but when Ana needed a place to stay, it was easy to move her in with me.

Not so simple, though, is keeping my hands—or my mouth—to myself. And the night she crawls into my bed and shares her body with me has me conjuring up all kinds of ideas about our future.

Until a big surprise I never saw coming changes everything.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

I’m completely addicted to this series, and this one is my favorite so far….lots of surprises I wasn’t expecting….but good ones!!!!

I love that each one of the guys gets the chance to tell their story, and it’s now Grant’s turn. He is the quieter, older captain. Some would call him distant, stubborn, and grumpy. Boy, those people don’t have a clue what a man he is. He is drop dead gorgeous,and  he is also a giant. Yet underneath all of that is a gentle, loving soul just waiting to find its soulmate. He will find her in the most unexpected way. 

Ana is the girlfriend of one of the newest teammates. Let’s just say he isn’t the nicest person, and Grant witnesses that one night. He rescues her and gives her his number in case she ever needs him. He really doesn’t expect her to use it, but she does. She needs help in the most desperate way, and he comes riding in like a knight in shining armor…even if he isn’t the typical “hero.” 

The two become platonic roommates. He is just giving her a place to stay. I loved watching these two open up to one another, and they become such great friends. Yet, there is that crackle of electricity between them. One night the lines become blurred and nothing will be the same. 

Even though Grant isn’t sure a relationship is for him, I love that he is all in with Ana. She really doesn’t want to go straight into another relationship after her ex. I can’t blame her. Ryan touches on the serious subject of domestic abuse without delving too deeply. She definitely knows the fragile state victims are in. I liked that she gave Ana the time she needed to discover who she was. Yes, Grant was the hero, but so was Ana. She was able to put herself back together again. They were a fantastic couple!!!!

Ryan is an expert at combining sweet and sexy! She can also craft a story that touches on serious subjects yet give you moments that make you laugh! They are always swoonworthy and leave me with such a warm feeling in my heart and butterflies in my stomach!!!! With this one, she has some surprises in store for you too!!! Another winner!!!!!




 

If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series of athlete romances is perfect for you!

(Books can be enjoyed in any order.)
