ARC Review & Release Blitz: Prince Charming by CD Reiss

prince-charming-cover.jpg
The Cover: I really like this cover! I think it’s very eye catching and the colors look fantastic. Usually I like to see the cover model’s face but once I finished the Prince Charming I actually like the nod to mysterious cover model because it makes sense for the leading man in this book. A+

Basics: Prince Charming was released on January 4th 2018, published by Flip City Media Inc. and is 350 pages long. Genre wise Prince Charming belongs to contemporary romance.

Description:  Keaton Bridge is exactly the kind of guy a straight-arrow like Cassie doesn’t need.  For one thing, he’s a criminal—and she fights crime for a living. And being criminally handsome isn’t helping her say no, either. Everything about him screams trouble, from his British accent to his mysterious past.

And Cassie doesn’t do trouble. Keaton’s got his own trouble. He’s trying to go legit, and an FBI agent hanging around is the last thing that will help his credibility. All it took was one night of passion to sear her into his skin. Now he can’t imagine living happily ever after without her.

All they have to do is walk away. But neither of them ever walks away from danger.

Overall thoughts: Prince Charming was such a wonderful surprise for me! As for my first read of 2018 I had high expectations for this book and my expectations were definitely succeeded. Prince Charming was a dramatic, mysterious, sexy read and I was pleasantly surprised when the story wasn’t focused solely on romance. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I just want to read an intense love story about two people who can’t keep their hands off each other. But there are also times where I wish the stories were elaborated on and that’s exactly what Prince Charming did. 

In fact I don’t think the title should of been Prince Charming at all, I feel like Prince of Mystery would of work better or maybe even King of Mystery because Keaton intrigued the living heck out of me! I found myself re-reading some chapters and pages of this book because he was so mysterious and honestly I wanted to know more! He’s the perfect kind of man romance lovers like to read about: speaks with an accent, mysteriously sexy, intense and a bit possessed and most of all…not what he seems. 

Cassie makes a great heroine and I love her strength and spunk. She’s a hardworking and very relative, who doesn’t want a good job of their dreams and wants to take care of their family? Don’t we want that all for ourselves? Together Cassie and Keaton sizzle and pop chemistry wise and I actually wish there were more scenes of them together because their chemistry was so strong. The plot was strong and kept me interested, but Prince Charming really shines with the beautiful, deep connected relationship that Cassie and Keaton start to build towards one another. Prince Charming was a great way to start off 2018 and a definitely book you’ll want to add to your TBR!

About the Author:
 CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Release Blitz: What the Hail by Lani Lynn Vale

Title: What the Hail
Series: Hail Raisers
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Day: December 14th

Whatthehail6X9.jpg

Synopsis: He’s wanted her since he repossessed her car and made her cry.

Baylor Hail knew two things. One, he hated crying females. Two, it was even worse when he was the one to make that female cry.

He never meant to do anything but his job, but when one thing leads to another, suddenly all he can think about is the broken woman whose car he towed.

She’s wanted him since he patted her back and told her it was okay to cry even though she knew he was lying.

Nothing ever goes right for Lark.

Not when she got married. Not when she tried to leave her abusive husband, and not when she arrived in a new town with a fresh, clean slate.

That clean slate came courtesy of a secret organization that specializes in helping abused women find a way out.  They set her up with a whole new life. It just turns out that it happened to be right smack dab in the middle of another woman’s old one.

That woman also happens to be down on her luck, something that Lark learns the hard way when on her first day there, her car is towed by a handsome stranger.

It’s been two years since she’s felt any kind of sexual attraction toward a man, and she reacts badly.  We’re talking full-on, hysterical breakdown as he loads her car onto his tow truck while looking at her like she’s lost it.

Maybe being crazy isn’t all that bad. The next thing she knows, she’s spending time with the sexy stranger and life couldn’t be better—even though she still doesn’t have a car.

She thinks she’s in the clear, that she’s got it all figured out… well, that is until her ex-husband finds her again.

Now the ball is in her sexy stranger’s court as he decides whether or not her kind of crazy is worth getting killed over. Turns out, for Baylor Hail, maybe it is.

Release Blitz & ARC Review: The British Knight by Louise Bay

TheBritishKnight.Ebook (1).jpg
The Cover: I love this cover and I think with the model front and center with the London background, it looks fantastic and very eye catching. A+

Basics: The British Knight was released on December 3rd, 2017, published by Louise Bay and is 316 pages long. Genre wise The British Knight belongs to contemporary romance.

The British Knight.jpg

Description: When I’m offered the chance to leave New York to live in London for three months, I can’t pack my suitcase fast enough. As soon as I touch down I’m obsessing over red telephone boxes, palaces and all the black cabs.

But my favorite place is the tube. It’s wall-to-wall hot British men in suits. When I’m offered a temporary job working for a barrister, I say, sign me up.

On my first commute into work, it’s a total accident when I lose my balance and fall against the most handsome Brit alive. He’s as charming as James Bond and as suave as Mr. Darcy. I want to lick tea from his hard abs and listen to his accent all night long.

Turns out Mr. Handsome is my new boss. And his attitude isn’t as hot as his gorgeous face, broad shoulders and tight ass. He’s brooding, short-tempered and the most arrogant man I’ve ever met. As we’re fighting, out of nowhere he kisses me. And I’m pretty sure I see fireworks over Big Ben and hear God Save the Queen.

I wasn’t looking for the fairy tale but I might have found my knight in shining armor. The problem is he lives an ocean away.Release Day Blitz-2.jpg
Overall thoughts: I completely adored The British Knight! It was such a pleasant surprise! Violet and Alexander have this electric, fun and sexy chemistry and they are an absolute joy to read about. I loved the story and Louise Bay does a fabulous job of creating characters that you can immediately relate to. Violet wants a fresh start and a do over while Alexander is working hard to live up to his father’s name and livelihood. Last but not least, love always seems to find us in the most unexpected places and that aspect plays a huge part in The British Knight and honestly I could gush about this book for hours. I adored it. Louise Bay definitely has a new fan and reader!

Review: Tycoon by Katy Evans

Tycoon by Katy Evans
Publication Date: June 20th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
t `.jpg

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

The Cover: I am a big fan of Katy Evans, this is no secret if you’ve read my reviews before or visited this blog. So I’ve read all of her books but the cover of Tycoon is my favorite. There is just something about Chad Hurst (the cover model) and the look he gives the reader that is just like: “wow…he can see directly into my soul.” I am SO PICKY about book covers Tycoon is my absolutely favorite and it might actually be my favorite book cover of all time. A+++++

Basics: Tycoon was released on June 20th, 2017 and is 252 pages long. Genre wise Tycoon is contemporary romance, standalone and childhood romance. 

Description: 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.

t 1.jpg
Overall thoughts: Yay for Katy Evans first standalone book! I loved Tycoon! I always think it’s important for authors to try and connect with their readers and I definitely got that vibe from Tycoon. I think everyone can say that they loved someone when they were young or care deeply about someone. Maybe you are with that person right, maybe you aren’t…but there is a time in your life where you stop, take a look back and think what if? I really like exploring that type of romance narrative and I really enjoyed Aaric and Bryn’s story. Aaric is the perfect leading guy; although he didn’t have as much chapters compared to Bryn’s, I loved reading about his thoughts and feelings. Men are SO different than women so I really appreciate when an author writes from their POV. 

Bryn is a kick ass woman who is driven, sassy and everything I want to be when I’m 29/30! I loved the dynamic between these two, the push and pull of will they, won’t they? I’m actually quite sad that Tycoon was a standalone because I want more of Aaric and Bryn! That is my constant issue with standalones haha! But all in all, I loved Tycoon and I think it was a great nicely wrapped present Katy Evans has given us at the start of the summer! I can guarantee that Tycoon will either win best cover of the year or be in my top ten reads of 2017. 

Couple Chemistry Rating: 5/5 Shells

Favorite Quotes: “You play the game well.”
“It’s never been a game with you.” – Aaric & Bryn

“You want me.” “I…”

Release Blitz & Review: Third Base by Stella

ThirdBase_ecover.jpg

The Cover: I adore this cover! I think it’s visual pleasing to the eye and very sexy! I like how the baseball bat was added but I feel like it needed more baseball added to the cover because the sport is a important part of the story! A-

Basics: Third Base was released on November 2nd, 2017, published by GFY Publishing and is 335 pages long. Genre wise Third Base belongs to sports romance, childhood romance and contemporary romance. 

Description: 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 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. 

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.

Third Base Teaser Handle

Overall thoughts: FINALLY! A baseball romance! I loved the romance book world but when it comes to sports romance I thought they all revolved around football! I absolutely adored this story; there is nothing better than reading about two people growing up together and falling in love, along with dealing with a few bumps along the way. I thought the writing and story was very relatable and honest and I enjoyed Ellie and Coby’s relationship very much. 

If you are looking for a sweet childhood, baseball sporty type romance with some fun humor along the way, Third Base is for you! Harper and Walls make a great team and I will definitely be looking forward to their future works together.

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!
