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 Text Books (2)

Excerpt: “Why am I the only one getting naked?” Kristy huffed. “If you’re so confident that we won’t get caught, why is your suit still on?”

“Because I’m not the one who said I’ve always wanted to go skinny dipping.”

“Well, being the only one doing it isn’t much fun.”

“Wow, babe…what happened to you?”

After a moment, she asked, “What do you mean?”

“You got old.”

“I did what?”

“You heard me—got old.”

“Don’t be an Ash-hole. In case you don’t remember…I am old.”

Shaking my head, I bit back a grin she couldn’t see, though I felt confident she could hear the hilarity drifting past my lips. “Did you just call me an Ash-hole? On purpose? Or are your dentures falling out, giving you a minor slur.”

“Keep it up, and you’ll leave me no choice but to open a can of whoop-Ash on you.”

It took everything in me to hold back the humor that filled my entire body before it bellowed out into the night—which would most certainly wake a few people. “You’re on a roll. What else you got?”

“The list is rather extensive; it could take all night. Maybe if you weren’t such a jack-Ash, I’d tell you. But alas, you are, so it looks like you can kiss my Ash.”

“See?” I lowered my head and allowed my hushed laughter to swarm us, creating a cocoon meant for two. “You’re not old. You might think you are, but if that were the case, you wouldn’t have been able to come up with creative ways to spin my name into a curse word.”

“Well, they say you are the company you keep.”

“So it’s my fault you’ve been sneaking around, making out with your neighbor behind bushes at night like a teenager without a care in the world?”

“Something like that…” She couldn’t even say that with a straight face, which was evident by the amusement in her tone. “Regardless, you’re not allowed to say I’m old. I don’t give a rat’s Ash how good you are in bed, do it again and we’re finished. You hear me?”

“Yeah, Kris…” Eliminating the humor between us, I lowered my lips to her ear. “Loud and clear. And if you don’t take this bathing suit off now, I’ll make you scream so loud the entire neighborhood will hear you as well.”

ARC Review & Release Blitz: Love Rerouted by Leddy Harper

love re.png
The Cover: I love the cover and it’s overall vibe and color scheme! Everything blends together and the entire aesthetic of it is very pleasing. I also like how their is a couple on the cover instead of just one model, it’s a nice change and I think they look very good together, perfect for Maggie and Talon. A+

Basics: Getaway Car was released on April 4th 2018 and genre wise belongs to contemporary romance. 

Description: I needed to get out of town but didn’t have a car.
He had nowhere to go and offered to drive.
Forty-eight hours was all we were given.
A lifetime wouldn’t have been enough.

She had something of mine.
And I was determined to get it back.
I thought it was just my getaway car she’d stolen.
I had no idea she’d captured my heart as well.

Overall thoughts:
Before I dive into my thoughts, I wanted to first discuss Leddy Harper. I am a huge fan of her and here is the great thing about her: she will break your heart then piece it back together again…all in one book! To me that’s an important aspect that every author should have in some shape or form, to make the reader feel something. With Harper it’s not just romance or attraction, she puts true emotion into her writing and characters and I just love it. 

Getaway Car is a story about two people running from things but falling hard for each other. Maggie is an eighteen year old trying to escape a bad situation and Talon is also running from a bad situation, put these two together and you have one complicated, messy attraction and love story. They only had a few days together but they both made huge impacts on each other’s lives which is another trope of romance books I love so much, time skips and jumps. I do find that when people are apart yet they can only think about is one person very romantic. 

The romance and the relationship between Maggie and Talon was great but my absolute favorite part of Getaway Car was the constant suspense and guessing game of the twists and turns throughout the plot! I couldn’t put it down! With the magnetic chemistry of the couple and my curiousness I devoured Getaway Car very quickly! No spoilers but once you pick up this book and start reading you won’t be able to stop because you won’t be able to put the book down! Getaway Car was a fantastic read and will be on my list of my favorite 2018 reads!

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.
