RELEASE BLITZ & BOOK REVIEW: Royally Endowed by Emma Chase

 

 

 

 

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??

Sexy. As. Hell.

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go.
***
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.

Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.

But there’s only one woman he wants.

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

Melanie’s 5-Star Review:

A delightfully sweet romance, Royally Endowed made my heart skip a beat from one page to the next. I absolutely adore this entire series and this latest is the perfect addition. 

Ellie Hammond is Olivia’s younger sister. As Olivia is thrown into the spotlight– becoming a royal Duchess and wife to abdicated Prince Nicholas, Ellie also becomes thwarted into fame. And with voracious fans hungry for any bit of the royal family, Ellie is assigned her own security detail to protect her. This is where Logan St. James enters the story. At first, he’s hesitant to take on the job, feeling slightly insulted to be given an assignment to help guard Ellie– a young, free spirited American girl. What starts off as something of a nuisance to Logan ultimately becomes the best blessing both of them could have ever asked for. 

I loved the progression of their story. It never felt rushed even with all the years and the milestones that it covered. Instead, it helped create a foundation for their growing relationship. It was that much sweeter that in a way, Logan was there to see Ellie mature and Ellie was able to see Logan soften. I loved that they became a part of each other’s lives in such a unique way. With Logan’s natural need to protect Ellie and Ellie’s charming need to make Logan feel loved had me melting in a puddle of goo. There were so, so many swoon worthy and hot moments in this book. I thought that they made the perfect match. 

Royally Endowed is a 5-star read that  I guarantee it will set both your lady parts and your hearts on fire. Emma chase, you’ve totally done it again!

Ellie

But then the mood shifts, as if the air becomes thicker, weighted, more . . . sultry.

Because slowly, Logan sinks down to one knee in front of me—looking in my eyes the whole time. In this position, I could touch his shoulders, comb my fingers through his thick, dark hair. He’s the perfect height for me to bend down and kiss his mouth—the perfect height for him to kiss me back . . . in a lot of places.

My breath hitches. And I wonder he feels it too.

There’s a sound of tearing Velcro, and Logan takes something off his ankle—a holster, with a small silver knife, about three inches long.

“Keep this on you all the time,” he says seriously. “Just in case. If you wear a skirt, the strap will fit around your thigh.”

And I almost laugh. Most girls get a ring from a guy on his knees. I get a murder weapon. But still, it makes me feel safe . . . watched over. Like I’m something precious that deserves to be protected.

I take the knife from him, testing the surprisingly solid, heavy weight of it in my hand. I press my index finger to the tip.

Logan grabs my wrist tightly. “Careful. It’s sharp.”

There’s a small, painless nick, a tiny bead of blood, so I put my finger in my mouth, sucking.

And Logan’s watching me again.

Watching my mouth.

His chest seems to rise just a little faster, and his throat ripples when he swallows. He bends his head, curves his strong back, and then I feel his hands on my ankle, securing the strap. His touch is warm and self-assured. It’s the way he always moves—confident and experienced. Logan knows his body and he knows how to use it, in every way possible.

I almost moan. The sound is in the back of my throat, but I keep it trapped. I never knew the ankle was an erogenous zone, but it sure as hell is now. A hot pulse of pleasure streaks from Logan’s fingers on my bare skin, up my thigh, between my legs.

And I throb there, growing swollen and heavy as he keeps his hands on me.

Can he tell? Does he know? He’s so aware of everything, always so attuned, I wonder if he can sense my arousal . . . feel it in the air that clings between us.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ & BOOK REVIEW: The Difference Between Us by Rachel Higginson

RevisedDBU1I’m cursed.

At least when it comes to finding Mr. Right.

I’m tired of men that only want one night stands or blind dates that are nothing but awkward and uncomfortable. I’m tired of avoiding inappropriate text messages and the constant disappointment of always meeting Mr. Wrong.

After all these years of dates that lead nowhere, I can admit that it’s me. I’m the problem. I’m shy and picky and cursed. Definitely cursed.

So I’ve decided two things.

The first? I’m giving up dating and relationships and men in general. Maybe, possibly, forever.

The second? I’m going to have to try harder to avoid Ezra Baptiste.

If I couldn’t hack it in the kiddy pool of dating, I certainly can’t swim in his deep end. He’s too successful. Too intense. He’s all man when I’m used to nothing but boys pretending to be grownups. He’s everything I’m afraid to want and so far out of my league we might as well be different species entirely.

So he’ll need to find a different artist to paint his mural. And a different graphic designer to help him with his website. He’ll need to find someone else to glare at and flirt with and kiss.

It can’t be me.

We’re too different.

Melanie’s 4.5 Star Review:

image1 (2)I have always enjoyed Rachel Higginson’s writing. Whether she was making me ugly cry or swooning like a mad woman. I’ll basically read anything she churns out because I know that I’m in for a good time. In her latest release, The Difference Between Us, Ms. Higginson brings us something light and sweet but without a doubt, one full of heart.

The protagonists in this book are ones we are quite familiar with (if you’ve read the first book in this standalone series). Ezra who is Killian Quinn’s best bud and Molly who is Vera Delane’s BFF are front and center in this book. From the very moment that these two met one another in The Opposite of You I just knew that there was a really good story brewing. My assumptions were proved right.

I loved, loved the mystery and intrigue behind Ezra. A tall, dark, handsome man who has made a success of himself after crawling out of a not so easy childhood. Intimidating yet unbelievably warm and caring, you can’t help but fall head over heels in love with him.  I mean when he says things like, “You should have always been Jasmine” after Molly confesses her and Vera’s obsession with Aladdin as young kids—fighting to be Jasmine each time they saw the film… C’mon, how would that not melt your heart?! And Molly, God did I love her character too. I loved how protective and grateful she was of her friendship with Vera. I can always judge a person’s character by how they value their family and friends and Molly Maverick was one of the good ones. The interaction and the progression of Ezra and Molly’s relationship was sweet as candy. It drew many sighs and my awes out of me. The back and forth emails between them were so fun to read as well.

You can’t help but get lost in the pages of this book. The Difference Between Us will leave a huge perma-smile on your face. A feel good love story about two unlikely people who at the end you can’t ever imagine being without one another. I enjoyed this book a lot and I swear it ya’ll, this is the perfect end of summer read.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ: Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

 

 

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.

He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend–smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he’d done.

Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.

Only it turned out, the man I’d just told off wasn’t the right guy.

Oops. My mistake.

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.

I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?

That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.

Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.

I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.

This was going to be interesting…

RELEASE DAY BLITZ: The Catch by K. Bromberg

 

 

 

After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.

Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.

But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.

With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.

He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.

Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.

So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.

And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play.

But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?

Tycoon by Katy Evans
Publication Date: June 20th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Tycoon, an all-new standalone from Katy Evans is LIVE!!!

Tycoon Amazon

He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.

Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.

That man is gone.

In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.

He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.

The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.

It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.

I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.

And he doesn’t.

Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.

Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.

He’s assessing every piece of me, to the point I’ve never felt so bare.

I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.

Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.

Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ & BOOK REVIEW: Love Me In The Dark by Mia Asher

18274894_829755177181300_5655510760069979899_n

 

 

Two strangers in Paris …
One passionate, earth-shattering kiss.

He was the artist upstairs
with the tantalizing smile and laughing eyes.

He was the devil inviting me to sin,
seducing me to dance in the bright moonlight.

He was desire and need.

When he touched me, my body sang.
My soul came alive.

But I belonged to another man,
and he didn’t want to let me go.

 

 

 

Melanie’s 5 Star Review:

Mia Asher is the queen of love triangles. She has made this her own brand, one that cannot be replicated or compared. Love Me In The Dark is her latest release and once again she has drowned us with crippling angst and tempted us with a most sinfully sensual love story, enough to make anyone self-combust. I read this in one sitting, my heart beating wildly making it feel like it would jump straight out of my damn chest. It’s utterly addictive; a guaranteed roller coaster ride which you’ll never want to get off of. All hail the queen bee of love triangles, she has done it again with what I personally feel as her best work yet.

The level of anxiety that this book caused me was straight up, unhealthy. Though this love triangle made it easy for me to choose who our heroine would end up with, I loved that Mia threw in a healthy dose of scandal; a forbidden twist that I didn’t see coming. This to me is the ultimate prize for a masochistic reader like myself. I was both turned on and appalled. A confounding feeling much like what Valentina must have felt throughout this book. Our heroine, once a naïve, happy-go-lucky girl now looks at the mirror and doesn’t recognize herself other than being William’s trophy wife. Dressed always to impress with a list of charity galas to plan, Valentina suddenly begins to realize that the life she’d always imagined isn’t quite what she had hoped for. Working through their marital woes, she and William make plans to spend some time together in Paris. What isn’t surprising is William’s sudden change of plans when he’s needed to stay in the states for work matters. But what is surprising and as luck would have it, Valentina doesn’t go running back home instead she decides to stay in Paris to think things through and to find herself. It’s not so much what she finds in Paris but rather who.

Sebastien has felt immense loss, the kind where you’re  surviving  through life but without real purpose. The pain he feels is thunderous and worth a sheet of tears to rain down on him. Valentina and Sebastien are both stifled by the dark and it isn’t until they lay eyes on one another that the light begins to seep through the cracks. There was an inexplicable connection between them that draws them together and once they give in to this force, the light that shines on them become so blinding it set the pages on fire.

You will not be able to help but sympathize and at times empathize with the characters. You’ll fall in love with Sebastien as heart achingly easy as Valentina did. You’ll revel in the beauty behind the love and the connection that they share with one another, trusting in the promises of second chances. If I could close my eyes and wish on a falling star, I’d have wished for a bit more. Even a couple more chapters or an epilogue perhaps. I was left still hungry for more of Sebastien and Valentina. So, Ms. Asher if you are reading this I am on bended knees (Boyz II Men style) asking you to make this wish come true. Guess this is the problem all authors runs into when they’ve drugged up their readers, they’re always going to want just a bit more. Love Me In The Dark was written to evoke a myriad of emotions out of its readers and let me tell you, Mia Asher superbly delivered.

We Like It Big Tunes:

La Vie en Rose

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose

When you kiss me, Heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose

When you press me to your heart
And in a world apart
A world where roses bloom

And when you speak
Angels sing from above
Every day words
Seems to turn into love songs

Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose

About the Author:

 I’m a writer, a hopeless romantic, a wanderer, a dreamer, a cynic, and a believer. And, I might be a bit crazy – but who isn’t?

I believe in happy endings however I know that not everyone is lucky enough to get one, but such is life. I think fine lines exist to be pushed and possibly crossed.

Love,
M.
