Release Blitz & Review: Misadventures of a Curvy Girl by Sierra Simone

Curvy Girl cover
The Cover: I LOVE this cover! I am so happy and THANKFUL that curvy women are being represented. Honestly this cover and story make me so emotional because I am a curvy woman myself and I just love this. The picture of the mode and the flower petals all work well together.

Basics: Misadventures of a Curvy Girl was released on February 19th 2019, published by Waterhouse Press and is 240 pages long. Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. Genre wise Misadventures of a Curvy Girl belongs to contemporary romance, standalone romance, erotica and mengage. 

Description: For the first time in her life, Ireland Mills is happy with her body. No more fad diets, no more hiding from every camera in the room, no more low self-esteem. She’d rather be alone than with someone who’ll only love her if she’s skinny.

Caleb Carpenter and Ben Weber are everything Ireland and the Kansas Chamber of Commerce dreamed of when conceptualizing the “Real Kansas” promotional campaign. They’re handsome, young, educated, and totally dedicated to their small prairie town.

When Ireland’s Prius gets stuck on a Kansas dirt road and a massive storm rips through town, she’s left stranded with nowhere to turn but to Caleb and Ben. These two hunky country boys are impossible to ignore, but could they ever be interested in her as well?

Caleb and Ben are more than interested…and they’re willing to share. After their first night together, they know this has to be more than a one-time thing. They need to make her theirs forever. But can they convince Ireland they love her, curves and all?

Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

Overall thoughts: I want to start off this review by first saying thank you to Sierra Simone because this book means so much to me. I am a curvy woman and have struggled for so many years to love myself and to see that same struggle with a female character in a freaking romance book and feel represented? I am completely blown away and so, so thankful. I relate to Ireland SO FREAKING MUCH, oh my goodness that is probably my favorite thing that I love about Misadventures of a Curvy Girl is how RELATABLE it is!! When it comes to books right now and I’m talking about ANY book, ANY genre…representation is HUGE and to be able to relate to to a book like this immediately is just magic. 

Misadventures of a Curvy Girl starts off with Ireland getting stranded in the middle of nowhere, in a rural part of Kansas and gets rescued by two men. Not just any two men, two hot, muscled, beautiful men who are CLEARLY attracted to her however Ireland is so sure of that because why would two attractive men want a curvy girl? Thus begins the story of three people falling for one another. One girl trying to understand how two men can want and love and two men trying to make the girl understand how beautiful she is and that they want her, no matter what society says. 

Misadventures of a Curvy Girl has Sierra Simone’s signature, sizzling, sexy writing with a wonderful love story that will make you feel good and melt your heart. I loved Ireland, Ben and Caleb together and their story is a definite read for any romance lover!

About the Author:
 Sierra is a voracious reader of all things including the smuttiest smut, young adult, piles of non-fiction for research, and everything Bill Bryson (especially on audio). She loves writing the dirtiest things that she can think of, King Arthur, sparkling water, Tarot, coffee, leggings, and learning new words daily.

Her previous jobs have included firing ceramics, teaching living history lessons in a one-room schoolhouse in full, 1908-approved school marm attire, and working as a librarian for several years—not in that order

She lives in the Kansas City area with her hot cop husband, two children, and two giant dogs. (And two cats, but they’re so naughty we don’t talk about them.) The social media she cares about the most are Spotify and (her very very NSFW) Tumblr. Following her in those places is a true love language, indeed.

Release Blitz & Review: The Wrong Gentleman by Louise Bay

TheWrongGentleman_Ebook_Amazon (1).jpg
The Cover: The Wrong Gentleman cover is gorgeous! I love how well the background and the model connect and work well together. I think all of Louise Bay’s book covers are gorgeous but I especially love how sunshine backlights the male cover model too. It’s something different and adds something a little extra to the cover. 

Basics: The Wrong Gentleman was released on February 19th 2019 and is 268 pages long. Genre wise The Wrong Gentleman belongs to contemporary romance.

Description: I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention. First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost. But women never keep my attention for more than a night.

Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast. When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.

Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer. Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night. And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of. I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her. I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble. ***This is a stand-alone novel.***
TWG Teaser Post Wk 1.jpg
Overall thoughts: I loved The Wrong Gentleman! There is something magical about two lost or broken souls coming together and I adored Landon and Skylar together! They are a couple that need each other and honestly what was missing in both of their lives was one another, again something that I found extra special in regards to their love story.

Needing a fresh start after selling his company, Landon wants something quieter and calmer life. Everything changes when his friend asks him a favor that leads him to meet our leading lady, Skylar. She is literally one of my favorite characters, ever. Skylar has been through a lot and her past really, really touched my heart and more than anything I just wanted her to find happiness. I think it’s a big deal when you love a character so much that you genuinely want them to be happy, that speaks volumes to the character AND the creation/writing/portrayal of the character.

Everything just takes off when Skylar and Landon meet. They begin as friends and their friendship deepens into something much more raw and real and beautiful. I adore them as a couple and their chemistry just leaps off the page. Louise Bay is very talented and The Wrong Gentleman is one of her best books she’s ever written, highly recommend!

Release Blitz & Review: Overture by Skye Warren

Overture AN.jpgThe Cover: I think the cover of Overture is simple, sweet and I think it ties in very well with the story and characters. It’s different from other romance book covers and I think it fits Skye Warren’s style. 

Basics: Overture was released on February 19th, 2019 and is 350 pages long. Genre wise Overture belongs to contemporary romance and forbidden romance. 

Description: The world knows Samantha Brooks as the violin prodigy. She guards her secret truth—the desire she harbors for her guardian. Liam North got custody of her six years ago. She’s all grown up now, but he still treats her like a child. No matter how much he wants her. No matter how bad he aches for one taste.

Her sweet overtures break down the ex-soldier’s defenses, but there’s more at stake than her body. Every touch, every kiss, every night. The closer she gets, the more exposed his darkest secret. She’s one step away from finding out what happened the night she lost her family. One step away from leaving him forever.

***Overture is the first novel in a brand new series from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren.***
Oveture.jpg
Overall thoughts: Once again Skye Warren hits it out of the park because Overture is a definite homerun. I don’t know why but I am highly drawn to taboo or forbidden romance books, (I blame Romeo and Juliet) and Overture is a classic forbidden romance book. The story immediately had me enthralled from the first page and I honestly feel like Overture was just the beginning of a great series. 

To the world Samantha is the world’s best violinist, playing that instrument is her life and she’s one of the youngest prodigies to play violin ever. Liam is her guardian, distant cool and collected but has strong feelings about taking care of Samantha. Which actually turns into the main issue in Overture, it’s an issue when you fall head over heels for the person who is your guardian; it’s even worse when you want something you can’t have, no matter how bad it is. Samantha and Liam both troubled pasts and can’t help being drawn to one another, no matter how wrong or right it feels. As their relationships complicates further when Samantha tries to prove how grown up she is to Liam and happens to stumble upon the deeper, darker secrets between them. 

Overture is a well written, steamy, forbidden romance love story and I’m so excited for the rest of this series! I can’t wait to see what Skye Warren does with Samantha and Liam.

Release Blitz: Tomboy by Avery Flynn

How exactly has one good deed landed me in the penalty box? Tomboy, an all-new, sexy romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn, is available now! Tomboy_1600x2400.jpg
Blurb: Ice Knights defenseman Zach Blackburn has come down with the flu, and my BFF—his PR manager—begs me to put my nursing degree to use and get him back to health. Of course she would call in a favor for the most hated man in Harbor City. But when he’s finally on the mend and I’m sneaking out of his place, everything goes sideways. Paparazzi spot me and pictures, plus accusations that I slept with him, fly faster than a hockey puck.

At first, all of Harbor City wants my blood—or to give me a girlie-girl makeover. But then…the team finally wins a game. And now this fickle town wants me with the big jerk twenty-four seven. Argh. I never slept with him the first time! But no one will listen. Then the grumpy bastard goes and promises to break his no-fan-appearances rule to help raise money for a free health clinic—but only if I’m rink-side at every game. That’s not a deal I can turn down.

But when the team keeps winning, and I realize there’s more to him than his bad reputation, suddenly remembering to keep my real hands off my fake date gets harder and harder to do.

Tomboy - Teaser 1 AN.jpgAbout the Author: USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Release Blitz & Review: Catastrophe Queen by Emma Hart

Catastrophe Queen, an all-new hilarious office romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is available now!
CQ-BANNERTWO-live.jpg
The Cover: Catastrophe Queen has a beautiful cover! I love the campy, funny vibe and the model. font and colors all work really well together, very aesthetically pleasing. It also catches the vibe of the book perfectly. 

Basics: Catastrophe Queen by Emma Hart was released on January 29th 2019. Genre wise Catastrophe Queen belongs to contemporary romance and romcom. 

Description: One hot mess. One hot boss. One too many hot encounters… It’s not you. It’s me.  No, seriously. It is me. Not only does my name literally mean “unfortunate,” but that’s the story of my life.  Everything I touch turns to crap. An apartment fire—that I swear I was not responsible for—means I’m living back at home with my sex-mad parents. Yay, me! 

Which is why I need my new job as personal assistant to Cameron Reid to get back on my feet. Three months in this job and I can move back out and, hopefully, remember to turn off my flat iron once in a while. Ahem.  On paper, my job is easy. Make coffee. Book appointments. Keep everything in order.  Until I walk in on my boss, half-naked, wearing nothing but the kind of tiny white towel that dreams are made of.  Now, nothing is easy—except our mutual attraction. But he’s my boss, and you know what they say about mixing work and pleasure: unless you do p*rn, it’s just not worth it.  Or is it?

Overall thoughts: Catastrophe Queen by Emma Hart is a laugh out loud, funny, feel good romance book. Mallory is such a funny and relatable character that I wish she was real so I could be her friend. She is definitely a standout woman but for all the wrong reasons unfortunately. When she is hired for an office job she can’t help but gawk and swoon over her gorgeous, new boss Cameron Reid. Ironically though, they already know each other which makes things a little more awkward.

 Catastrophe Queen is a perfect contemporary romance and romcom book that it is very enjoyable. The romance is slow burning but overall a great romance read to add to your bookshelf!
