CaptivatedByYou-Ebook (1).jpg
Blurb: Claudia Townsend, daughter of disgraced Judge Keith Townsend needs a fresh start, and in New York, she finds exactly what she’s looking for. 

Raised with poise and grace and a lifetime of being around the wealthiest members of society in Savannah, Georgia, becoming a client of Infidelity makes perfect sense. It offers her everything she needs—financial security, a new life, and the possibility of final getting rid of her pesky V-Card.

What—or who—she doesn’t expect, is for Liam Allistor to come crashing in and messing up all of her new plans.

Liam Allistor has more secrets than he has tattoos. His deep set black eyes and banging body along with his mystery allure is what makes panties drop as soon as he steps on stage in crowded arenas. But then he’s rocked by a scandal and his ticket sales plummet. His tour ends at breakneck speed, and everyone, including Liam, is left wondering if his career has come to a screeching halt. 

He needs a publicity makeover, but more than that…he needs a girlfriend. And Infidelity is just the place for him to find one.

His agent wants him to clean up his image. Infidelity wants his money and silence.

And Liam? He wants Claudia, and he doesn’t care what he has to do to get her.

Cover Reveal · new release · pre-order

Cover Reveal: Muse by Katy Evans

A brand new sizzling standalone contemporary romance by New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.
Muse_Amazon.jpg
Blurb: It was supposed to just be a quick trip to Manhattan.
My best friend was heartbroken. She needed support, and I needed inspiration.
I hoped to love the city. Bustling. Crazy. Inspiring New York.

But I ended up at the airport, heading home in the same condition that I arrived. In a rut. Add to all that, missing my flight and losing my laptop—the laptop, where the Best Love Story Ever sat on my hard drive.

Enter Noah Steele. Eerily familiar. Movie star. Heartthrob. Sultry romeo with bedroom eyes. (But we’re not going there.) He missed his flight too. Noah is so smoldering, lip-bitingly hot, he’s not taken seriously as an actor, and is struggling to launch his career in New York.

He’s only ever had superficial girlfriends, so he’s having trouble showing true passion in his acting—the same challenge I’m having with this book. When we met, we didn’t know that our connection would bring us the change we’d been craving. 

That we’d be the very thing the other needed and didn’t know. Each other’s muse.

*This book is a complete standalone and no previous reading is necessary to enjoy.*

Review & Release Blitz: Kiss My Ash by Leddy Harper

KissMyAsh_ecover (1)

The Cover: I don’t know but I literally have seen dozens of book covers this summer with shirtless models, not that I’m complaining or find them unattractive, BUT why are there so many?! Seriously? This cover is gorgeous but it doesn’t say Asher to me! Especially considering through Kiss My Ash he seventeen to eighteen years old.

Basics: Kiss My Ash was released on August 9th 2018, published by Leddy Harper and is 288 pages long. Genre wise Kiss My Ash belongs to contemporary romance and age gap romance. 

Description: Ash Jenkins was the typical boy next door. Wait, who am I kidding? There was nothing typical about that boy.

He was tall, ripped, and had the voice of a man twice his age. Intelligent, sexy as sin, and barely legal. Sent to live with his dad after getting in some trouble with the law, he was definitely someone I needed to stay away from.

But he had his sights set on me, and he didn’t try to hide it.
Did it still make me a cougar if I was the prey?
Kiss My Ash.jpgOverall thoughts: Kiss My Ash by Leddy Harper is the embodiment of forbidden romance with a modern twist. There has been a lot of age gap/difference romances I’ve been reading lately but Harper really pushed the envelope with Kiss My Ash. I am open to reading about all sorts of different relationships and romances because one, it gets a bit repetitive if  I’m reading the same song and dance over and over; and two I really like diversity when it comes to reading. Again, I’ve read age gap romances before but nothing has been so risky since I finished with Kiss My Ash

Kristy just moved into a new home and neighborhood, she’s setting down roots so her daughter can finish out her high school career in peace. While moving into her house all by herself, she gets help from one of her next door neighbors. A very hot, young look man who is equally attracted to her as she is to him. Problem is, Asher doesn’t turn eighteen for several months. He’s always been into the older crowd than his peers, so naturally he would be attracted to an older woman. Kristy thinks he’s in his twenties and Asher? Well…he just goes with it. They have this incredible connection and chemistry, surely telling her he’s eighteen in a few months wouldn’t ruin everything. There’s no touching and he’s being careful as their relationship grows….until everything blows up.

I love Kristy and Asher! Their attraction and love for each other is very heartwarming and endearing. They want to be together but are dealing with this horrible age gap between them, Asher doesn’t care and poor Kristy is horrified to see hear daughter’s reaction. Did I mention Asher and Kristy’s daughter go to school together? It wouldn’t be a good romance book if it didn’t have drama in it! 

I loved Kiss My Ash and Kristy and Asher melted my heart. I also love the risk Leddy Harper takes in each and every one of her books and it is definitely a classic for any forbidden romance lover fan. 

Kiss My Ash Teaser 18Couple Chemistry Rating: 5/5 Shells

Favorite Quotes: “It may have been his birthday, but it sure as hell felt like mine.” -Kristy

“Despite everything, I can’t deny how I feel about you. I love you, and no matter what I do, I can’t make it go away.” -Kristy

“This is what you really want?”
“No. You are what I really want.” Asher & Kristy

Cover Reveal: Down To You Jayne Frost

Down_EBOOK_WEB.jpg
Blurb: She started from perfect. A star who shone brighter than the rest.
But then fate took it all away. Now she’s broken. A beautiful song with a fractured beat.

But I’m still on the rise. Chasing a dream that she’s already left behind. If I’m lucky, I can find my redemption in the spotlight. Destiny brought us together. Put her in my path.

It started with a road trip. But somewhere along the line, it became a journey from here to there. Maybe she can help me. Maybe we can help each other. Maybe music is enough.

Maybe. Every story deserves a soundtrack. And ours is epic.

Review & Excerpt: It Seemed Like A Good Idea A The Time by Kylie Scott

ISLAGIATT FOR WEB
The Cover: I really like It Seemed Like A Good Idea A The Time and it’s very aesthetically pleasing with the background, font and cover model. However I do wish there was more of Pete in it and more of his essence and not just his abs.

Basics:  It Seemed Like A Good Idea A The Time was released on August 7th 2018 and is 316 pages long. Genre wise It Seemed Like A Good Idea A The Time belongs to contemporary romance and age gap romance.

Description: Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was.

Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete was left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town.

Seven years later, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back those old feelings. Sometimes first loves are the truest.
Good-Idea-promo-4.jpg
Excerpt: It was meant to be a soft kiss. A chaste one, even.

The minute my lips touched his, however, everything changed. Callused hands grabbed the sides of my face and my mouth opened on a gasp. His tongue swept inside, taking me over. Holy hell. Shoes and purse hit the floor, forgotten. Nothing about this kiss was slow or easy. The man devoured me. Every ounce of emotion poured into that kiss, all of the anger and frustration between us. His tongue was teasing and tasting, driving me wild. Then he drew back to suck and nip at my bottom lip. One hand slid around the back of my neck, the other over my hip to grab at my ass. His hold was firm, a little rough even. He treated my body like it belonged to him and I wasn’t gentle either.

Apparently experience mattered. Because all I could do was try and keep up.

I held on tight to his open shirt, straining against him, trying to get closer. I’d have crawled inside the man if I could. Turned out that under certain circumstances, the taste of scotch worked for me in a big way. Against my hip, his cock hardened, digging into me. And oh my God, I’d done that to him. Me. How amazing! Meanwhile, my body felt liquid, core aching and empty. I needed him inside of me and it seemed like I’d already been waiting forever.

“Pete. Please.”

“Fuck,” he muttered, breath hot against my ear.

I fumbled at the remaining buttons on his shirt. My damn fingers didn’t seem to be working. Easier to just push the whole thing upward. Luckily, the man decided to help, tearing the shirt off over his head. More skin was good. And he was so hot and smooth, a thrill to the touch. The solid flesh of his pecs and the flat plane of his stomach.

He tore at the zipper on the back of my dress, dragging fabric down over my shoulders. A growl came from the back of his throat, a noise of frustration, impatience. I’m reasonably certain I heard the silk rip. I didn’t care. His hands and mouth seemed to cover every bit of skin revealed, touching and tasting me everywhere. The dress got stuck on my hips. Out of the way enough for now.

He didn’t even bother undoing my bra, simply peeling down one of the lace cups to free my flesh. My breast filled his hot palm as it took the weight. Fingers plumped me, his thumb flicking over my hard nipple. The sting of pain followed by the heat of his kiss made my head spin and my body ache. There was no room for thought as he fed me deep, wet kisses. Slowly, he took us to the floor. No time for anything else. Just the urgent need to have him inside me.

The hardness of the polished wood was cool against my back. My legs were spread, his body between them. And with his broad chest above me, his weight taken on one arm, he was all I could see. I swear even the insides of my thighs were wet, I was so ready. It would have been embarrassing with anybody else. But this man, he had to know, he had to understand. It had always been him.

“Pete, I need—”

“I know,” he said, voice harsh and low.

It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time Overall thoughts: It Seemed Like A Good Idea A The Time by Kylie Scott is one of the best reads of the Summer! One of my favorite genres of romance to read about is age gap/difference romance and honestly? It’s a breath of fresh air because every relationship is different and these two, Adele and Pete have heck of a backstory and connection.

Adele is back home visiting her father for his upcoming wedding, trouble is she hasn’t visited for a very long time due to the incident. Yes…THE incident. No spoilers but the pure teenage angst, love and overall feel of the incident was such a teenager thing to do that I am still laughing about it weeks later. Adele is a precious cinnamon roll and I adore her. 

Pete and Adele have a complicated history and complicated relationship with mountains and mountains of desire for each other and it’s one heck of a mess to sort through. Overall I really loved Adele and Pete as a couple, I think the whole age gap issue isn’t a big deal considering I myself am married to another man and I also found it refreshing because it’s not written about much. Lately age gap romance is becoming more popular yes, but before? Not so much.

The only issue I had with It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time was PETE. I have a love-hate relationship with the man! Oh my goodness! He drove me NUTS. In a good and bad way! But the angst and self hate thing he deals with because he wants Adele and the fact  she is younger and he feels bad about it drove me BANANAS. You are attracted to her, you were close with her and share a connection…accept it already! If it’s legal…who cares! But also reading about him struggling for his feelings with Adele and wanting/loving her made me swoon too, so I can’t complain too much!

It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time will definitely one of my favorite reads of the summer! Adele and Pete have one of the best static age gap romances I have ever read about and I adore them!

Review: Poor Unfortunate Soul: A Tale of the Sea Witch by Serena Valentino

41e6EaNZGKL.jpg
The Cover: I really love this cover especially for a retelling according to the villain’s side of the story. Everyone knows The Little Mermaid and Ursula is one of the most iconic villains ever and I really like this cover. What I also really loved about Poor Unfortunate Soul was the fact that when you remove the cover sleeve, the cover becomes Ursula’s human counterpart, Vanessa. 

Basics: Poor Unfortunate Soul was released on July 26th 2016, published by Disney Press and is 208 pages long. It is the the third book in the Villans trilogy. Genre wise Poor Unfortunate Soul belongs to Young Adult and Fantasy. 

Description: The third novel in Serena Valentino’s (Fairest of All, Beast Within) “VILLAINS” trilogy, featuring the story of the Little Mermaid from the perspective of the sea witch Ursula.
Poor Unforunate Soul
Overall thoughts: I am a huge Disney fan! Since I was little I loved everything Disney and it’s no surprise that I adore The Little Mermaid! Considering the basis of this blog’s design is based off beachy style! I was in Barnes & Nobles several months ago when I saw on one of the display shelves that Disney Published and author Serena Valentino teamed up to write books based off Disney villain’s points of views. I immediately grabbed Ursula’s book, Poor Unfortunate Soul. I just finished reading it recently and I was completely blown away! 

I’ve read a lot of difference versions of retellings of fairy-tales but not like this! I like reading from different types of perspectives: good guy, bad guy, etc. There’s always two sides to a story and Poor Unfortunate Soul definitely tells you Ursula’s side of the story and then some! Valentino adds some other interesting details in Poor Unfortunate Soul that literally had me pausing my reading and saying, “Wait…what?!” 

Ursula is still herself in this book and she is definitely evil too, but Valentino adds more depth to the sea witch and she actually made me feel bad for her. Seriously. Overall Poor Unfortunate Soul is any fantasy, fairy tale, Disney lover’s dream. It is part of Valentino’s Villain’s trilogy series and can be read as a standalone but I feel like the reader would understand the book and series better if they had read the other books in the series, which I plan on doing very soon!

Confessions-PRIEST-PRINT-FOR-WEB.jpeg
Blurb: I am complex. My love is all-encompassing.
And when it comes to my heart, there is only one rule: Don’t mess with what’s mine.
Until the age of seven, I was Joel Alexander Donovan, son of Jimmy.

The man who terrorized a town and made its citizens fear  the very ground he walked on. Including me,  the day I realized that ground ran red with blood.

At age eighteen, I became Priest. A man without a past.
A man determined to right the wrongs of my father.
A man who never believed anyone could love the son of such a monster.
But then a thief stole my heart. A sweetheart lit up my world.
And I forgot for a moment you should never turn your back on your enemy.

And thus begins a lesson to those who would seek to harm: Never underestimate what the Priest will do to protect the Princess and the Prick.
