BLOG TOUR & BOOK REVIEW: Midnight Valentine by J.T. Geissinger

About MIDNIGHT VALENTINE

True love never dies.

Megan and Cassidy were childhood sweethearts who thought they would be together forever. Fate had other plans. Soon after they were married, Cass’s life was tragically cut short. Still grieving her soul mate five years later, Megan moves to the small town of Seaside, Oregon, hoping to rebuild her life.

Her first night there, she meets the town recluse, Theo. Withdrawn, guarded, and mysteriously silent since a terrible accident left him scarred, Theo takes an instant and inexplicable dislike to Megan. But as their paths cross again and again, Megan becomes convinced there’s more to Theo than meets the eye.

When she discovers the reason for his silence, his nightmares, and especially his pointed dislike, Megan becomes convinced of something far more astonishing.

Is a second chance at a once-in-a-lifetime love possible, or is a broken heart the cruelest kind of liar?

 

Melanie’s 5+ Star Review:

You know you’ve read one heck of a book when you can’t stop thinking about it long after you’ve turned the last page. J.T. Geissinger is a new author for me and her newest release, Midnight Valentine just absolutely blew me away. Now I can’t wait to search for her other works because if they are anything like this one, then you’ll find me binge reading her stories all day long. This story continues to linger in my mind and my heart. Everything… I mean every single thing about this book was magnificent. It’s been a LONG time since a book has left me feeling this way. Midnight Valentine is wonderfully unique and it aroused feelings that I haven’t really ever felt before. It’s like taking your first yoga class and feeling soreness in muscles you never knew you had before the very next day.

It really is best to go into this book blind. I know that sounds cliché but this is one of those story lines that cannot be spoiled—not even a tiny bit. The blurb should be enough to lure you in and trust me when I say that once you’re into those pages you will never want to leave. As I’d mentioned before, J.T. Geissinger is a brand new author for me so I feel this sense of unbelievable gratification that I decided to give Midnight Valentine a go. I fell in love with her writing. It’s inviting and exceptionally captivating. The dialogue between the characters are both smart and witty. I am obsessed. Her words are prolific and it seriously made me want to do some soul searching. You become invested in the characters and hope for nothing less than a happy ending. Theo and Megan—uggghhh these two owned me! The character development, one of the very best I’ve ever read. You’re all in with them, no whats or ifs or buts about it. They’re relatable, lovable, and stammeringly impossible to forget.

Midnight Valentine is currently standing strong on my BEST reads of the year and one that’s a definite, definite top ever read. With its mysterious plot line, addictive prose, and memorable characters, this book  is one that will leave a lasting impression. It has my book shelf worthy stamp of approval and one that I know I’ll find myself aching to re-read. If you read one part of this review it’s this—THIS IS A MUST READ, ONE THAT CANNOT BE MISSED!!!

No Tomorrow by Carian Cole COVER REVEAL

 

Title: No Tomorrow
Author: Carian Cole
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone
Cover Photo: Regina Wamba
Models: Brandon Katz & Cherry Albrecht
 Release Date: March 8, 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 sixteen 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.

I Can Explain by Missy Johnson RELEASE BLITZ

 

Title: I Can Explain
Series: Awkward Love #2
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance
Release Date: February 15, 2018
Blurb
Standing on the balcony, outside my boss’s apartment,
wearing only my underwear?
Not how I expected to start my Saturday morning.I guess I should’ve thought harder about going home with my sexy new gym
instructor, especially since I had no idea the guy was married. When he pushed
me out onto the balcony, five seconds before his wife walked through the door,
I jumped one apartment over because I thought it would be less embarrassing for
a stranger to find me than his wife.

That was a smart move.

So here I am, wearing next to nothing and freezing my ass off, standing outside
the living room window of my young, sexy, and very intimidating boss, Chase
Winston.

I have two choices: I sit here and try to think of another way out of this and
risk dying of hypothermia. Or I can suck it up and knock on that window. After
a long, internal argument with myself, I choose

option two.

Here goes nothing…
**Awkward Love is a series of short, sexy, fun novels that can be read in ANY
order. Each book is COMPLETELY separate from the next, so you can read one, or
you can read them all!**

Excerpt
“Seriously, did you see the way she looked at me when she
told me not to stuff it up?” I huff, stalking back over to Peyton. “Like, God forbid
I put two sugars in his damn coffee instead of one. Hey, maybe I should slip
some laxatives in there?” I say with an evil grin. “I mean, he walks around
like he’s got something lodged up his ass, maybe all he needs is a good,
old-fashioned cleanout.”
 
“Lanna—”
 
“No. I don’t care how ridiculously sexy he is or how dreamy those blue eyes are
to stare into,” I say, cutting her off.
 
I was on a roll, and Peyton wasn’t going to stop me. I have two years’ worth of
frustration to vent, and it’s all coming out now, one way or another.
 
“He’s an asshole to everyone here but Jade, and I bet that’s only because she’s
sucking his cock. Not that I wouldn’t go there if he asked me to—”
 
“Lanna,” Peyton hisses, her eyes wide.
 
“Oh, come on, like you wouldn’t suck his cock too,” I retort, nodding knowingly
at her. “Hey, maybe we could tag team him.”
 
We’d had a lengthy discussion about this a few weeks ago over a bottle of
tequila, so I knew exactly what she wanted to do with that ten inches of pure
stiff muscle. And I thought I was the dirty one. I
chuckle to myself and turn around. My heart skips a beat when I spot Chase
leaning against Jade’s desk. He smirks at me and casually lifts one eyebrow.
 
Oh, god no.
 
My heart pounds as I wait for him to react. This can’t be happening. I cannot
believe I just said that. Well, I can believe it, because I say shit like that
every day, but not when he’s standing right behind me. I glare at Peyton, who
releases a snort and then flushes, bowing her head. Chase’s eyes don’t leave me
as I glance around the room, praying for an escape, but there isn’t one.
 
It’s like a scene from a really bad movie. With any luck, he’ll drag me outside
and throw me on the back of his bike and take me somewhere to have his way with
me. Or his office will do just fine.
 
“Is Jade here?” he asks, directing his question at me, his smooth, deep voice
making me shiver.
 
I shake my head, incapable of speaking. I think it’s worse that he’s ignoring
the obvious issue of my outburst. I’d almost prefer for him to say something
about it. Anything. Almost… He nods, and then walks over to the door,
stopping just as he reaches it. I brace myself as he turns his attention back
to me.
 
“Alana?” he asks.
 
I force myself to meet his steel blue eyes, wishing he didn’t find this so damn
amusing.
 
“Yes?” I whisper, feeling sick. God, I am so embarrassed.
 
 “While I appreciate your attentiveness to my health, I can assure you that
everything is functioning just as it should. Maybe you should focus more on
your job and less on things that don’t concern you?” he asks lightly. “Like who
is and isn’t sucking my cock.”
 
He walks out, briskly closing the door behind him.
 
I stumble over to my desk and slump down onto my chair, my eyes wide. I breathe
out, feeling dazed. My heart’s racing and I’m feeling a mixture of extreme
nausea and embarrassment over the whole situation. Every time I think about
what I just said, more or less to his face, I
want to throw up.
 
Peyton rushes over to me, both panicked and trying not to laugh, which under
any other circumstance would be a funny combination. I glare at her, which sets
her off.
 
“I’m so sorry,” she giggles, shaking her head. “I swear I’m not laughing at
you, but that just made my fucking day.”
 
“I’m glad I can be a source of amusement for you,” I grumble, my tone sour.
 
“At least he knows your name now.” she offers, her eyes twinkling.
 
I scowl at her. I think I preferred it when he didn’t.

Be Mine… Or Else by Alexa Riley Review

Be Mine… Or Else

38355125
Dove Rosetta is crushing hard on the hot guy she ran in to at the coffee shop. His big build, sharp suits and dark eyes have her flustered, and as luck would have it, they meet by chance every day. She might be innocent, but her thoughts aren’t, and she’s ready for him to make a move.

Beau Heart has been watching her for weeks. It’s no accident that he sees Dove every day and he’s tired of playing it cool. He’s done with gentle and patient. He’s grumpy, and now it’s time for dirty and fast.

Warning: This Valentine’s story is filled with alpha possessiveness and rough need. Good things come to those who wait, but great things come to those who claim. Get ready!

IMG_2586

This was a cute read! Just in time for Valentine’s Day!
Beau’s possessiveness was off the charts in this book! Man! He was crazy!

“When we get close we get lost in each other. I don’t want others seeing you like that. You belong to me.”

He was absolutely crazy for Dove. Everyday he went out of his way to spend just a little time with her. Just getting to know her. But his patience finally snapped when she wouldn’t call him! lol
He had been leaving his phone number on the coffee cups he was buying for her. And of course… Dove never paid any attention to the coffee cups.
So when Beau finally had enough and made his move… Dove was kinda surprised but excited too! She had been wanting Beau for a while now!

“I knew the moment I saw you that you’d belong to me in every way.”

This was a cute read! This was a classic Alexa Riley book that I love so much!! Beau went after what he wanted and he took Dove. And Dove tamed the beast in Beau.

“I love that you always know what I need.”
“I love that you always give me what I need.”

When Autumn Ends by Beth Rinyu PreOrder Blitz

Title: When Autumn Ends
Author: Beth Rinyu
Genre: Romance/Mystery
Release Date: February 19, 2018

I was at the top of my game until reality hit in a way I had never imagined, forcing me to face the living hell that had become my life. The ghosts and demons that once filled the pages of my bestselling novels now flooded my mind, consuming my thoughts both day and night. 

She was hauntingly beautiful, and I was drawn to her in the most unimaginable way. 
She was my breath when I had stopped breathing. 
She was my hope when I was drowning in despair. 
She was my muse when I had lost all motivation. 

But nothing good lasted—not in my world anyway.
Like the last days of autumn when the beautiful leaves are stripped away by the long winter days, lurking in the distance; her caring ways and gentle soul were only temporary. Soon it would be taken from me, leaving my heart as barren as those once majestic trees. But unlike those autumn days, she remained, giving me the courage to face the cold, dark winter of my past while uncovering secrets and lies that could be the premise of a bestseller. Only, this wasn’t fiction, this was my reality—a reality I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen – or in today’s world a touch of the keyboard. I am the author of The Exception To The Rule, An Unplanned series, Drowning In Love, A Cry for Hope, A Will To Change, Blind Side of Love, Three of a Kind series, Easy Silence, and A Right To Remain.

Synopsis

One break is all The Crow Brothers need and we’re about to get it.

Johnny Outlaw, rock legend and lead singer of The Resistance, is here to watch us play. But he’s not the only familiar face in the crowd—killer little body, heart-shaped face, and drop-dead gorgeous.

Hannah Nichols sitting at the bar makes it hard to concentrate, sparks already reigniting. The beauty was never a groupie and tonight she’s not here to catch our show. She came to drop a bomb. “You have a son.”

She underestimated me. I’ll prove to my son, and her, that I can be the dad he needs.

What is it about musicians? Why are they so damn sexy?

My heart was Jet Crow’s the moment he opened his sexy mouth and sang that first song. One stolen night with that man would never be enough, but I’m not here to fall into his bed. Again. I’m here to fight for custody of a son he’s never known.

There’s just one problem. Those sparks between us have become flames. If we’re not careful we’re both going to get burned.

BLOG TOUR & BOOK REVIEW: Wildcat by Max Monroe

Wildcat_FINAL

Blurb:

Wildcat: a football formation in which the ball is snapped, not to the quarterback, but to another player lined up in the quarterback position.

Wild, Cat: a beautiful woman from the sky, who hooked me against the rails, and has me on the ropes. Sweet like honey, with a hint of sass burning behind her pretty brown eyes, she took over my heart without warning.

 I’m Quinn Bailey, quarterback for the New York Mavericks.

Sports analysts predicted I’d break records and take my team all the way.

 But no one predicted this.

 And just like the other team, I never saw it coming.

Disclaimer: 
Unfortunately, you many not MARRY this book without proper consent from the authors.

Though the idea of a spouse who does nothing but provide you endless laughs for hours at a time, turn you on, make your heart swell, and require nothing but your undivided attention for several hours in return sounds nearly orgasmic, there are laws. And the Fictional Municipality only allows twenty book wives at a time.

Due to high demand for a significant other that encourages you to leave the dishes in the sink, the laundry in the washer, and the vacuum in the closet unattended, we’ve implemented a shift schedule of marital proprietorship. You will be rotated accordingly.

Melanie’s 4 Star Review:

Holy swoon alert! Honestly, I didn’t expect anything less from Max Monroe but I swear these two gave us something so insanely sweet, I felt like I had a cavity on every tooth once I was done. Quinn Bailey scored touchdowns not only in the field but all over my hopeless romantic heart. For me, Wildcat was all about the Mavericks quarterback. He won me over times a million.

While the start of the book was a little slow for my taste, once it started to pick up it really picked up. The means in which Quinn wooed the beautiful Catharine Wild drove me quite wild as well. The chemistry they had was explosive. There was so much sweet and also so much heat. I was burning up during certain moments between Quinn and Cat. Gosh, these two were so hot for each other.

In typical Max Monroe fashion, there’s also quite a bit of humor sprinkled all over the pages. The inhaler moment?! YAS! LOL LOL! Reminded me so much of Georgia (from Tapping a Billionaire) and her Benadryl moment. I genuinely enjoy these authors writing. It’s always one heck of an entertaining ride.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, Wildcat may just be the perfect read whether if you’re spending it with a Quinn Bailey of your own or spending it with girlfriends as loveable as Catharine Wild.
