The Whole Package

by

unnamed
Bailey Webb has stressed and worried about her special needs sister Hazel ever since their mom took off. She’s struggling to keep both their heads above water until a chance meeting changes her life forever.

From the moment Shawn Reed meets Bailey, all he wants to do is protect her. Not only does she need help but so does her sister, and he’s ready to step up to the plate.

Warning: This overly sweet and precious story is filled with so much love. It’s got surprise presents, baby farm animals, and a hero who loves to spoil. It’s all you could ask for, plus a mountain of sugar on top. Call your dentist and schedule an appointment. This book is guaranteed to give you cavities.

Omg…. the feels I had with this book!!! I loved it! This book was sooooo different from all the other books! It was super sweet!

Bailey stepped up when her mother took off with out a glance back. She left Bailey with the responsibility of taking care of her younger sister Hazel. She has special needs. Which Bailey doesn’t care. But it does put a great stress on her financially. She’s constantly stressing about money. And how she’s going to pay for her sisters medication. But she never shows Hazel that stress. She does anything and everything to make her sister happy.

“She lifts her hand and holds her pinky out. I lock it with my pinky and we both kiss our hands, which we always do when we’re on the same page.”

They are really best friends. They do everything together. I loved that! But it really leaves Bailey with a social life.

“Who has time for boys when you have a cow, two goats, and too many other animals to remember them all?”

Shawn wasn’t looking for anyone. It wasn’t even on his radar. But one look at Bailey and that changed quick! He knew being with Bailey she was a package deal. And he accepted Hazel and all her little quirks! He not only took care of Bailey but he took care of Hazel too. He wanted to make both of them happy.

Hazel was a strong young lady. She had her disabilities. But she never let them slow her down. She liked Shawn right from the beginning. She knew he was a good guy. So once Hazel felt things were getting serious. She wanted to know if he would stay forever.

“No, Shawn won’t ever leave like Mom did. He’s our knight in shining armor,”.

This was such a cute read! The ending was absolutely my favorite! I can’t wait for the next book to come out!

No Tomorrow by Carian Cole RELEASE BLITZ

 

Title: No Tomorrow
Author: Carian Cole
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone
 Release Date: September 13, 2018
Blurb

The people we love are thieves.

They steal our hearts. They steal our breath.

They steal our sanity.

And we let them.

Over and over and over again.

They say you never forget your first time.

Mine was with a homeless musician who effed my brains out under a
bridge.

He was my first love. And fourteen years later, I still can’t get him out of my
head.

He broke all my rules.

He also broke my heart.

I watched him climb to stardom, cheering him on from afar.

But I was never a fan; just a girl in love.

Like a tornado, he spiraled, leaving a path of destruction in his wake.

But love conquers all, right? It has to. Because here I stand, ravaged and
ruined, needing it to be true.

You can’t go back, but I want to. Back to the bridge. Back to when he sang only
for me. Before he was famous. Before he shattered my heart.

I thought I knew everything about him.

But I could not have been more wrong.

He promised me every tomorrow. And here I am, waiting.

And hoping.

Again.

Sweet Home Series By Tillie Cole Sale Blitz

 

 

Sweet Home Series

 

 

 

 

 

The Sweet Home series is on sale for only 99c right now and the whole series is moving to Kindle Unlimited.

Sweet Home #1

At age twenty, Molly Shakespeare knows a lot.

She knows Descartes and Kant.

She knows academia and Oxford.

She knows that the people who love you leave you.

She knows how to be alone.

But when Molly leaves England’s grey skies behind to start a new life at the University of Alabama, she finds that she has a lot to learn — she didn’t know a summer could be so hot, she didn’t know students could be so intimidating, and she certainly didn’t know just how much the folks of Alabama love their football.

When a chance encounter with notorious star quarterback, Romeo Prince, leaves her unable to think of anything but his chocolate-brown eyes, dirty-blond hair and perfect physique, Molly soon realises that her quiet, solitary life is about to dramatically change forever…

Mature New Adult novel — contains adult content, highly sexual situations and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up*

Sweet Rome #1.5

 

You met Romeo Prince in the Amazon & USA Today bestselling novel, Sweet Home. Now hear the story from his lips: unbarred, uncensored, and raw to the bone.

It makes me laugh when I hear folks think Molly and I rushed into things too fast, spouting that we couldn’t possibly have felt what we did for each other in such a short space of time. I say, how the hell would they know? We made it, didn’t we? She became my whole life, didn’t she? And as for my folks not being real, being true? Tell that to me aged ten, eleven, twelve—damn, all my bastard life—when I was never enough, when I was beaten until I bled for being too good at football and not being everything they’d dreamed: the perfectly dutiful son. Tell that to thousands of kids around the world getting wailed on by asshole parents for whatever stupid reason; tell them evil don’t exist in their eyes.

Fuck Romeo and Juliet. This is the story of me and my girl, from my lips. No mushy sentiment, no cheese, just the plain, hard truth, and, because I’m feeling generous, I’m going to let you in on more of our story too.

Sweet Rome is a New Adult Companion Novel to Sweet Home—contains adult content, sexual situations, and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up.

Until we find the one soul who makes the burden of such secrets just that little bit easier to bear.

Lexington “Lexi” Hart is a senior at the University of Alabama. Surrounded by her best friends, her loving family and having fulfilled her life-long dream of making the Crimson Tide cheer squad, everything is going exactly as she always dreamed it would. But beneath her happy exterior, demons lurk, threatening to jeopardize everything Lexi has worked to achieve. When events in her life become too much to cope with, Lexi finds herself spiraling down into the realm of her biggest fear. Lexi falls hard, victim once again to the only thing that can destroy her and, on the way, finds herself falling straight into the dangerous tattooed arms of a guy from the wrong side of the tracks.

Austin Carillo, starting Wide Receiver for the Alabama Crimson Tide, must get picked in this year’s NFL draft. He needs it. His brothers need it. Most importantly, his mother desperately needs it. Brought up in a world where the poor are forgotten, the sick are left to fend for themselves and no hero miraculously appears to pull you out of hell, Austin had no other choice but to make a living on the wrong side of the law—until football offered Austin the break to get his life back on track. But when a family tragedy drags him back into the clutches of the gang he believed he had left far behind, Austin finds himself falling. Falling back into criminal ways and falling deep into a suffocating darkness. Until a troubled yet kindred spirit stumbles across his path, where Austin quickly finds he is falling for a young woman, a young woman who might just have the power to save him from his worst enemy: himself.

Can two troubled souls find a lasting peace together? Or will they finally succumb to the demons threatening to destroy them?

Sweet Hope #3

From the USA Today Bestselling Sweet Home Series, comes Sweet Hope.

My name is Ally Prince and I’ve always been unlucky in love. I don’t know why, I just always… have.

When all of my best friends were falling for their soul mates in College, I was left behind. I was Ally, the pretty cousin of superstar quarterback, Romeo Prince. I was Ally, the best friend to the most amazing group of girls I’ve ever known—a title I loved, but one I became tired of ‘just’ being. And I was Ally, the one on which they could all rely.

But to me, I was Ally, the girl with the heart no one had claimed… And I was, Ally, the girl, who underneath it all, was heart-breakingly lonely.

I LOVE love; the thought of it, the nervous excitement of falling for Mr. Right, the desire of someone becoming my entire world… of me becoming theirs. I’ve always wanted passion, heart-stopping, epic, life-changing romance… I’ve always wanted the fairytale… I’ve always wanted it all.

It just never seemed like I would get it.

For the past few years I’ve thrown myself into my career as a museum curator. I’m the best of the best, the person every museum wants to hire, so when an opportunity came up to move to Seattle, I jumped at the chance. My cousin and my best friend lived in Seattle and I needed a change.

I needed a new beginning.

I wasn’t expecting to meet anyone in the Emerald City. I wasn’t expecting to work closely with the reclusive new sculptor my all-important gallery design was centered around. And I certainly wasn’t expecting to fall for him… heart-stopping, epic, life-changing love…
My real life fairytale come true.

But, like in every fairytale, there’s a villain, a dark and tortured soul… I just didn’t know that the villain and the hero in my story would end up being one and the same.

New Adult Romance Novel—contains adult content, sexual situations and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up.

Life has never been easy for twenty-year-old Levi Carillo. The youngest of the Carillo boys, Levi is nothing like his older brothers. He isn’t dark in looks or intimidating to everyone he meets. In fact, he’s quite the opposite. Haunted by a crippling shyness and the tragic events of his past, Levi spends his days with his head buried in his books or training hard for his college football team. Too timid to talk to girls, Levi stays as far away as possible and completely on his own… until he saves the life of a troubled pretty blonde, a troubled pretty blonde that might just be the exception to his rule.

Elsie Hall is homeless. Or at least that’s all anyone ever sees. Every day is a fight for survival on the cold streets of Seattle, every day a struggle to find food and keep warm. Alone in life—a life that’s dangerous and cruel—her will to keep going is an ever-losing battle. In her world of silence, Elsie has given up hope that her life will contain anything but constant struggle and pain… until the beautiful boy she has severely wronged comes to her rescue at precisely the right time.

🎸SYNOPSIS 🎸

The One didn’t exist.

Then I met Meadow.

The band’s honorary little sister was off-limits. Too late for that. She says we’re “nothing serious,” but she’s gotten under my skin and I can’t stop thinking about her. And when I touch her, I know we’re meant to be.

Happy Endings don’t exist.

Not even with Ridge.

My big plans never included falling for a rock star. Too soon for that. He wants to make us a “thing,” and I can’t deny our chemistry is combustible. His persistence is wearing me down, making his proposition hard to resist.

If true love only exists in fairy tales, why am I beginning to believe that Ridge just might be my happily ever after?

Flirting With Forever by Kendall Ryan Review Blitz

 

 

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!

IMG_5985

I’m really enjoyed his book!! I love a good friends to lovers story! The surprise of feeling something more for the friend you never saw that way. The realization that your friend has been in front of you this whole time. And all you had to do was look up. I love it.

I really liked how this book was a slow burn. We got to see how Cam was struggling in the beginning with his feeling for Natalie. It was like someone flipped the switch and he was really seeing Natalie in a different light.

And I think too Natalie was just as confused with her feelings as well. She was getting those little Butterfly feelings in her stomach.
I loved how when they finally got together it was so explosive! They both felt everything on a whole different level!

I wish we had a little more at the end. If them just being a couple. But overall enjoyed it.
This was a good read! And I can’t wait for the next book to come out!!

The Glue by K. Webster Book Blitz

The Glue

by K Webster
Publication Date: September 5, 2018
Genres: Taboo Treat

Purchase: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA

I’m a fixer. A lover. Always searching for the right fit.
And I come up empty every time.
My desires are unusual.
I don’t feel whole until I’m in the middle, holding it all together.
Which makes having a romantic relationship really difficult.

Until them.
Two people. An unraveling marriage. Love on the rocks.
And they want me.
To put them back together again.

Problem is, once they’re fixed, where does that leave me?
I sure as hell hope I stick like glue.

***This story is MMF.***

IMG_5961

This was a good book. I’m glad I read it. I have to be honest here. I don’t read a lot of MMF books anymore. I’ve moved on to straight MM books or MMM books. I wasn’t liking the balance between the couples in MMF books.

And once again I felt that in this book. The balance wasn’t 100% even in my book. Vale was the main focus of the relationship. It got to me at times. I wanted more times with just Vaughn and Aiden. I think I needed that.

Aiden unknowingly met two people that were a couple. They both were on the brink of splitting up. He didn’t know that in the beginning. He just thought both these people were unhappy. He flirted and pushed both of them. Making the couple really see that things between them are really so far gone with them!

Vaughn and Val tried. I think Vaughn tried more than Vale. He really wanted his marriage to work with Vale. Vale on the other hand blamed Vaughn for something that was out of his control. Which was so wrong of her to do. She was the one to put the cracks in the marriage. And it just steamed rolled from there.

“We’re breaking. Little by little at first, but now it’s happening all too quickly. Too many little holes in our boat. We’re sinking. It’ll be over in a flash. I’m devastated.” -Vaughn

Vale knew what she was doing. She was just so overtaken with her want and need to have a family. She couldn’t see past it all.

“We’re broken,” -Vale

“We’re not broken,”
“We’re just cracked. All we need is a little glue. We’ll be good as new.” – Vaughn

Aiden was a breath of fresh air for both Vaughn and Vale. In the beginning he was their escape from their problems of their marriage. He brought a whole new freshness that neither had, had in a long time. He was their bright light. They both couldn’t stay away from him.

Aiden was very vulnerable when he met both Vale and Vaughn. He was still trying to figure himself out. He knew he like both men and women. He just kept putting a lot of pressure on himself on what sex he liked more.

He was very attracted to Vaughn right from the beginning. He was alpha all the time and that really got Aiden going.

“Something tells me you can’t dip your toes in with a man like Vaughn Young. You’ll drown. He’s deep.” -Aiden

And Vale I felt was in need of some emotional support when Aiden walked into her life.

“I’m going to save the day,”
“If you’ll let me.”
“We’re not simply talking about a job here. We’re talking about everything.” -Aiden

Aiden was what they both needed. He brought two people that couldn’t see past it all back into the light. He brought them back to how they were in the beginning. And at the same time Vale and Vaughn gave Aiden what he needed. Both of them. He didn’t have to choose.

Overall this was a good read. We get to see how some of the other characters from past books are in this book. We see love and acceptance from everyone. I loved the ending. It was prefect!
