Release Blitz & Review: American King by Sierra Simone

AVALIBLE NOW 2.jpg-1.jpeg
The Cover: I never say this about covers but I really and I mean REALLY do not like this cover. Personally I don’t think it represents Ash at all and I wish really wish they would of given his character justice because he is KING and this cover is just horrible. But you know the saying ‘don’t judge a book by it’s cover’? That saying presents American King folks, hold onto your seats because this review is gonna get a bit crazy! 

Basics: American King was released on October 31st, 2017 and is 456 pages long. Genre wise American King belongs to contemporary, contemporary romance, angst and drama. 

Description: They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth.  And here I am.  My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal.  And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.

I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return.  I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.

And I will survive this. Long live the King.

Overall thoughts: I can’t believe the New Camelot series is over. I started American Queen last November and fell so in love with Sierra Simone’s beautiful writing, great characters and crazy off the wall, hair pulling, toe curling plot. I just can’t believe it’s over. We started with a Queen, learned more about a Prince and the story ended with the King. Where do I even begin? To be honest with you I thought this series was going to end horribly and ruin my life, no I’m serious. Dead serious.I haven’t been obsessed or more heartsick over a series like this since Harry freaking Potter. Greer, Embry and Ash will hold a piece of my heart for my entire life…that is how much I love this series. So let’s dive in this stunning conclusion! Warning: spoilers ahead!

With the way American Prince ended,(you can read my review here<–) I had the worst feeling ever. Everyone was torn apart: Ash found out he had a secret son with his SISTER, Embry left Ash and Greer so he can run against Ash for the Presidency, Abilene was supposedly pregnant with Embry’s child and our trio relationship seemed to be in ruins.  So how the heck was ANYTHING supposed to be fixed or worked out? I don’t know how but Sierra Simone wrapped up things quite nicely and even added a little bow!

Things were strained for several years between our Queen, Prince and King but they all worked out! I guess you could say the main thing about the trio’s relationship was that they persisted. Abilene married Embry and had his child, even so the love between Ash, Greer and Embry was strong. You would think that would be the main issue between all of them, but that wasn’t the case; it was the whole Ash vs Embry presidency that caused the main problems. Embry left Ash because he thought he failed protecting Greer so he decided to run against him, little did he know that our King had a plan to take down Melwas all along. All Embry had to do was be patience, but of course our little prince is anything but. 

There were three shocking revelations in American King, one the first one that involved Abilene. Her suicide bothered me more than I thought it would. When Sierra Simone mentioned writing a chapter from Abilene’s point of view in her group on Facebook, I was annoyed. Why did we need a chapter from the evil red haired demon that caused so many problems throughout this entire series? Why Sierra?! Haven’t you tortured us enough?! I’m kidding! Kind of. But yes, I felt sad and I felt sorry for Abilene because haven’t all of us cared for someone who didn’t feel the same way? We weren’t manic or crazy about it I’m sure but still, I felt bad for her. 

The second shocking thing about American King was Merlin! I seriously thought he would end up being the bad guy but nope! Merlin was team Queen-Prince-King all along!

And the craziest, shocking, out of left field part about American King? Greer, Ash and Embry are reincarnations of Queen Genevieve, King Arthur and Knight Lancelot. The biggest kicker of them all though? Merlin IS Merlin AND this entire thing has happened before and he’s SEEN it. Greer, Ash and Embry loved each other in another life and came back again to love each other once. Mind. Blown. I saw hints of Merlin actually having magical powers in American Prince and some hints in American Queen but the fact that Sierra actually went through with this in a contemporary romance book and officially making it a fantasy love story? She is seriously the best. 

I loved this story and these characters that made my toes curl and made me cry for hours on end. So much. I’m going to miss the crazy twists and turns that turned my world upside down! I HIGHLY recommend this series and can guarantee that you won’t regret it! Thank you Sierra Simone for writing such an amazing, crazy, life ruining story because I will cherish it forever. Long live the King, Queen and Prince!

review

Review: Mr. President by Katy Evans

I had the honor of receiving an ARC of Mr. President by Katy Evans! (ARC= Advanced Reader’s Copy for you non bloggers out there!)  I want to start off this review by saying I am a huge fan of Katy and her wonderful series. I started reading her Real series in May 2013 and I have been hooked ever since. So I am completely over the moon and beyond thankful to be chosen to review one of her books early. (Thank you again to Katy and to Nina at Socialbutterfly!) I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you! Trust me guys, you are going to want to get a hold of this one!
P1.jpg
BasicsMr. President will be released on October 31st, Happy Halloween! Mr. President is 280 pages long and is published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform.

Description: He’s won the hearts of millions. But is he willing to lose his?

I met the president’s son when we were both young. Matthew Hamilton was handsome, polished, and intelligent. I’d never met a guy like him. He promised me that he’d never run for president. I promised that if he did, I’d be by his side. Two terms later, an invitation to join Matthew Hamilton’s campaign is the most exhilarating opportunity I’ve ever experienced. I’m determined to make a difference; he is determined to win.

Focused on his goal, Matt is steadfast, ruthless, and disarming. All eyes are on him and his popularity is surging. But soon, the next possible president of the United States is possessing me in more ways than one—and despite the risks, I’m helpless to resist. We’re stealing touches, stealing moments, and stealing away at night. But our chemical connection is quickly becoming dangerously combustive, putting not only my heart, but Matt’s chance at the presidency on the line.

Winning will take everything. Walking away will be the hardest thing of all.
P 2.png
(Some small spoilers ahead)
Overall thoughts: Evans wrote an absolutely perfect, romantic book and her timing couldn’t be more ideal. Everyone’s mind seems to be on the 2016 election and whoever you are voting for, you have to  agree how crazy the 2016 election has been so far. Some people are going crazy over whose running and others want to move to Canada. Mr. President is a perfect escape for anyone who either needs a break from the election or loves Kennedy family centric history. Charlotte and Matt’s chemistry is endearing and  magnetic. It’s not just a romance story about two people who see each other and want one another, then fall in love. Charlotte and Matt knew each other as kids and remembered each other as they grew up which I personally find so swoon worthy. Two people who haven’t seen each other in years and they find their way back to one another and fall in love? Count me in!

I also love how Evans added that touch of forbidden romance into Charlotte and Matt’s relationship with different aspects. Charlotte just turned two twenty and Matt is thirty five, a thirteen age difference. Most people I don’t think would care about this; some would maybe raise their eyebrows but for a man who is running for President and dating a woman who is thirteen years younger than he is? It’s been decades and decades since we’ve had a candidate run for the Presidency without a spouse, so of course people are going to question why Matt Hamilton isn’t married. (At least in Evans world they are.) So when Charlotte joins Matt’s campaign team and they start to secretly fall for one another, it could be turned into a scandal considering all the sneaking around they have to do. 

Having Matt run as a third party candidate was also something I enjoyed. It was a nice twist and I appreciated the fresh take on a different type of nominee considering we usually only hear about the Democrat or Republican candidate.

I adored Mr. President very much and I was actually pretty shocked to learn that Mr. President would be turning into a series! Pleasantly shocked. I thought Mr. President would be a standalone but Katy Evans continues to surprise me. Mr. President left me with several questions so I can’t wait for the next installment of the White House series, Commander in Chief!

Teaser: Saving It by Monica Murphy

Saving It, an all-new YA romance from Monica Murphy is coming November 6th!

Oct 26th teaser.jpg
Eden: Josh Evans and I have been best friends forever. He knows all my secrets, and I know all of his. So when he randomly asks me to help him lose his virginity, I sort of flip out. That’s a question that sends your mind to places you’ve seriously never considered before. Like, you know. Having sex. With your best friend. Except Josh doesn’t want to have sex with me—he wants me to help him find a girl. A nice girl who’s funny and smart and cute. Except he already knows a girl just like that…

Josh: Eden Sumner is my best friend. So of course she’d be the person to help me find my perfect match, so I can drop my V card before I head off to college. Except the more we search, the more I realize that maybe the right girl has been by my side all along. I don’t need Eden’s help in finding me a girl to love. I’m pretty sure I’m already in love with Eden. But now she thinks I’m only after one thing…with anyone but her.

Teaser: Third Base by Stella

✮ ✮ ✮ COMING SOON ✮ ✮ ✮
#7Days #FriendstoLovers #HomeRunHomies #ComingSoon
Third Base by Stella is releasing November 2, 2017
Add to your TBR – http://bit.ly/2vVEXn6

First base: kissing.
Second base: above the waist.
Third base: below the waist.
Home run: no explanation needed.

Every baseball player knows to keep their eye on the ball and swing for the fences. Each base counts, but a home run is the goal. No one wants to strike out. This is true both on and off the field.

Ellie Teller had been my best friend since we were born, and we had a plan—get out of the tiny Alabama town we’d grown up in and go to college…together. But even life’s best-laid plans could throw a powerful curveball. Rather than attend classes, I was now the starting pitcher for a Major League team.

While my game-day stats were impressive, my record with women was less desirable. I was the professional baseball player who hadn’t been able to make it past third base since the one and only night I’d played hardball with my best friend.

But when the bottom of the ninth came to a close on my career, I had to decide if our friendship was worth more than a few extra innings.

Sierra Simone has a new release American King coming out next week so in honor of that I thought I would review one of Summer 2017’s hottest releases. Both Sierra and Laurelin are amazing writers and I really love their books. Together they make an incredible team and  I’m really excited to share my thoughts on Hot Cop with you guys!

hot cop.jpg

The Cover: I like this cover a lot! I think it’s okay, it fits the story of the book perfectly and the model is very attractive. I like how his eyes are covered by glasses too giving off that ‘hot cop’ vibe. B+ 

Basics: Hot Cop was released on June 13th 2017 and is 288 pages long. Genre wise Hot Cop belongs to contemporary romance and cop romance.

Description:
Chase: You have the right to remain sexy.
Anything you say can and will be used to get you in my bed.
You have the right to use my body to give yourself a delirious, life-changing orgasm.
If you have trouble…don’t worry, I’m a bit of an expert in that department.
There’s nothing ‘thin’ about my blue line, if you catch my drift, and trust me, I know how to put those handcuffs to good use.

Livia Ward wants a baby before she’s thirty.  And even though Officer Chase Kelly is exactly the kind of cocky jerk this librarian has sworn off, he is undeniably hot.  Both of them think they can give each other what they want–a few nights of fun for Officer Kelly, a no-strings baby for Livia–but this hot cop is about to learn that sex, babies, and love don’t always play by the rules.

Hot Cop.jpg

Overall thoughts: Sierra Simone and Laurelin Paige are pure magic together, no seriously…they are literally the Disney version duo of the romance book world. Simone and Paige are fantastic writers, they create relatable and really attractive characters that make you root for them and covert them at the same time. Hot Cop is a great, funny and very steamy read. Livia Ward is a character that I think every person can relate to because let’s be honest, we all have a point in our lives where we are scared of how old we are getting or we fear we haven’t done enough in our lives. Suddenly the age you are about to become looms over your head and any age older than what you are is a death sentence. 

I am about to turn twenty six on Saturday and I can relate so hard to Livia. But her situation is a little bit different because she fears she’s getting too old to have a child. Enter Mr. Hot Cop himself Chase Kelly. At first he really just wants to bed Livia and move on with his Hot Cop ways but when he hears her proposal, a contract to conceive a baby with her suddenly everything changes. These two have great chemistry, they are funny and they will make your toes curl when you read about them. 

Hot Cop was one of my favorite summer reads and it’s a fantastic read if you’re into a story about two people clumsily falling in love and trying to make a baby at the same time while navigating everything else going around them. Hot Cop is currently on sale for $0.99 and is free to read if you’re part of the Kindle Unlimited program which I highly recommend doing! Happy Reading!

About Laurelin Paige: 
USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

Review: Silenced by Leddy Harper

silencedThe Cover: Who doesn’t love a hot guy with a man bun? Add that to a book cover and BAM! You have one heck of a hot cover! Hotness of the male cover model aside, I love the trees and the colors of Silenced so much and I think it fits the book’s story and I just love the vibe. But honestly I love everything about this book so expect lots of gushing. Sorry not sorry. A++++

Basics: Silenced was released on February 20th 2017, is part of the Kindle Unlimited Program and is 268 pages long. Genre wise Silenced belongs to contemporary romance and drama.

Description: As a young child, Killian Foster survives the unimaginable. Silenced and scarred, he keeps to himself, spending his time with his notebook in the woods behind his aunt’s house.

Until Rylee Anderson. When Rylee spots Killian hopping over a fence next door, she follows him, unprepared for the boy she’d find—or the relationship that would unfold over the next seven years.

Or the silence that would follow.

Fighting between the hate of his past and the promise of his future, Killian must make choices—ones that would affect more than himself. Choices that would test the lines of right and wrong. Decisions that could break the bond of the only love Killian knew.

Hate or love. Revenge or forgiveness. Silence or his voice.

sil 3

Overall thoughts: I loved Silenced, seriously; like I loved it  with my entire heart and soul. It’s story and characters have touched me in a way that will stay with me forever and honestly Silenced might become my top book of 2017. Leddy Harper where have you been all my life?! Anyway. enough of my gushing! So it’s very rare with romance books (at least the one’s I’ve read) to show the main characters younger, like child young. Killian and Rylee met one another when they were young, grew up together, healed together and fell in love because of that.

It’s always hard for me to read about a character’s bad past; whether something happened to them, they’ve lost a loved one or they’ve been through some traumatic event…it’s always, ALWAYS so hard to read about because I honestly feel their pain. I’m very emphatic even when it comes to fictional characters and Killian’s story and beginning absolutely wrecked me. Although Silenced is a work of fiction, the entire time I thought it was real because people abusing drugs and doing horrible things is such a issue today. I love Killian, I think he will be on my top five favorite males of 2017 because he loves Rylee with all of his being. From childhood to adulthood which is so rare nowadays and I thought it was such a neat touch that Harper included that in this story.

The love and chemistry between Rylee and Killian is electric and beautiful, I really did love reading about them as kids just learning how to love and lean on one another. Silenced is seriously one of  my favorite books of the year and Leddy Harper has my support and love for the rest of my life. This book seriously rocked my world and shook my core.

About the Author: Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped.

She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters. She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.

The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.

Cover Reveal: Ruin You, Book Three of the Debt Series by Molly O’Keefe

RUIN YOU, the third book in The Debt series by Molly O’Keefe, is releasing on November 9th! Pre-order here:   books2read.com/u/3GY5wn
RuinYouForApproval.png

Blurb: Simon: The only thing that stands in the way of my revenge is her. The lying scheming daughter of the man who killed my parents. She has the secrets I need to bring down her father. And I’ll do anything to get them. I will lie to her. Steal from her. Use her.  Ruin her.

It helps that our chemistry is explosive.  What I’m not expecting is for her to be so sweet. And so strong. So…irresistible.

Penny: After so many years of lying and hiding, I finally have a place to call home. With people I can call a family. The Paintbrush Inn is my life now, and I won’t let anyone ruin it.  When sexy and world-weary Simon checks in to the Inn, I never expect him to glance my way. I’ve spent my whole life blending into the background. Being overlooked and ignored. It’s been helpful, even though it’s lonely. And he’s way out of my league.

But our attraction is powerful. Undeniable. Dangerous. Because I can’t let anyone close. If the secrets I keep were to be revealed, my whole life would be destroyed.  But something about Simon makes me break all my own rules. I’m letting him in to my home, my body, my life, never expecting he has his own secrets.

His own lies. When the truth comes out, we’ll both be ruined.

MYRUIN_Teaser1

About the Author: Molly O’Keefe has always known she wanted to be a writer (except when she wanted to be a florist or a chef and the brief period of time when she considered being a cowgirl). And once she got her hands on some romances, she knew exactly what she wanted to write. She published her first Harlequin romance at age 25 and hasn’t looked back. She loves exploring every character’s road towards happily ever after.
Originally from a small town outside of Chicago, she went to university in St. Louis where she met and fell in love with the editor of her school newspaper. They followed each other around the world for several years and finally got married and settled down in Toronto, Ontario. They welcomed their son into their family in 2006, and their daughter in 2008. When she’s not at the park or cleaning up the toy room, Molly is working hard on her next novel, trying to exercise, stalking Tina Fey on the internet and dreaming of the day she can finish a cup of coffee without interruption.

Blog Tour & Review: Filthy Player by Stacey Lynn

FlithyPlayer-AN

The Cover: I like this cover, I think it would be even better if it showed the model’s face but I really like the stance and the vibe it gives off to the viewer. B+

Basics: Filthy Player was released on October 9th 2017 and is 261 pages long. Genre wise Filthy Player belongs to sports, sports romance, contemporary romance. 

Description:  The Raleigh Rough Riders are back, and this time Super Bowl Quarterback Beaux Hale finds himself playing the most important game of his life.

Every woman knows Beaux Hale is nothing but a player. Yet the first time he walks into Paige Halloway’s restaurant and flashes his sexy grin, she feels a heat between them spark. Too bad he opens his mouth and ruins it.

He may think his money, fame, and sexy looks will attract any woman—but he’s wrong.

Paige doesn’t have time for a man. She’s too busy keeping a roof over her head and taking care of her father to care about relationships.

Lucky for Beaux, he’s a man who’s ready to use all the plays at his disposal. He didn’t bring his team a Super Bowl victory by giving up at the first block in his path—and Paige Halloway has just become his new long-game.

Beaux also knows that sometimes, in order to win and claim your prize, you have to get a little bit filthy.

FilthyPlayer-Teaser1

Overall thoughts: I was really happy and a bit shocked at how much I enjoyed Filthy Player! I am not a big sports (especially football) person so I didn’t know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. Stacey Lynn is seriously one of the best authors to mix real life issues with contemporary romance. I read so many romance books and although I enjoy and love them…a lot of what happens in those books doesn’t happen in real life. That is okay because that’s the whole point of reading, to forget real life and dream for a bit, but it’s also nice to read something and know that what’s going on in the book is real life.

Paige is a great leading lady, she’s driven, loyal and hardworking woman who just wants to make ends meet and take care of her Dad. She’s given up a lot for her Dad but she doesn’t mind taking care of him and I really just adored her for being so protective over her dad. Beau is perfection, he is literally every woman’s dreamboat in one way or another. Some people like cocky, silly men while others like the rich, athletically fit men and there are some readers who just want to read about a character that is caring and understanding. Well…Beaux is a combination of those three traits. 

Paige and Beaux have great chemistry and I really enjoyed reading about them. Paige had so many responsibility and it was hard for her to really let herself have fun or settle down. Beaux wanted that for her and I just really liked the book’s flow of their relationship and how he really tried to make things work between them. 

Filthy Player has seriously been one of my favorite reads for the end of 2017 and I’m excited to read the rest of the Rough Riders series!

About the Author: Stacey Lynn currently lives in Minnesota with her husband and four children. When she’s not conquering mountains of laundry and fighting a war against dust bunnies and cracker crumbs, you can find her playing with her children, curled up on the couch with a good book, or on the boat with her family enjoying Minnesota’s beautiful, yet too short, summer.

She lives off her daily pot of coffee, can only write with a bowlful of Skittles nearby, and has been in love with romance novels since before she could drive herself to the library.

Release Blitz: Filthy Player by Stacey Lynn

Filthy Player by Stacey Lynn
Release Date: October 9thSBPRBanner-Filthy Player-RB.jpg

Synopsis: The Raleigh Rough Riders are back, and this time Super Bowl Quarterback Beaux Hale finds himself playing the most important game of his life.

Every woman knows Beaux Hale is nothing but a player. Yet the first time he walks into Paige Halloway’s restaurant and flashes his sexy grin, she feels a heat between them spark. Too bad he opens his mouth and ruins it.

He may think his money, fame, and sexy looks will attract any woman—but he’s wrong.

Paige doesn’t have time for a man. She’s too busy keeping a roof over her head and taking care of her father to care about relationships.

Lucky for Beaux, he’s a man who’s ready to use all the plays at his disposal. He didn’t bring his team a Super Bowl victory by giving up at the first block in his path—and Paige Halloway has just become his new long-game.

Beaux also knows that sometimes, in order to win and claim your prize, you have to get a little bit filthy.
