Release Blitz & Excerpt: Good Time by Jana Aston

available now.jpeg
There’s one thing you should know. 
I wasn’t that drunk.

I was more than sober enough to put a stop to it. The truth is, it was my idea. I’m the one who suggested it. I knew it was crazy, but it’s not as if I’d be the first girl to get married on a whim in Las Vegas. I wouldn’t even be the last girl to get married on a whim in Las Vegas.

So what’s my excuse? I liked him. I liked the idea that he’d be stuck with me, just for a little bit. Because nothing good ever lasts, so you might as well have a good time while you can. GOOD TIME is a standalone romantic comedy set in the same world as Good Girl.  This is Payton & Vince’s story.

Good Time teaser 3.jpg
Excerpt:  He thinks I’m funny. And exasperating. And bossy. And beautiful, he said that I was beautiful. It’s not the worst start in the history of starts, but I’d like to know more.

I pull out a stool and sit down at the island countertop so I can watch Vince work. It occurs to me once again what a shit wife I am. I don’t cook. I don’t give blow jobs. I haven’t asked if he needs anything dropped off at the dry cleaner. I don’t wear sexy lingerie. Maybe I should change? To be fair, the blow job thing is not my fault. I did offer that first night. I meant to yesterday, but he distracted me with his tongue and that was that. Gah, I’m just the worst.

 “What are you thinking about?”

 “Giving you a blow job.”

 “Yeah?” Vince responds easily, as if we’re talking about where the cutting board is. “Do you have a list of specific requirements for how you’d want that to happen?” So he’s open to the idea, is what I’m hearing. Maybe he’ll want to date after the annulment and he’ll fall in love with me? It’ll make a great story for our grandchildren.

 “You say that like I’m demanding.”

 “You are.”

 “I’m extremely easy-going! Everyone says so!” No one says that, actually. But it’s probably just because it’s never come up. It’s not as if I go around asking people if they think I’m easy-going, but if I did, they’d say yes. Probably. At least everyone except Vince would.

 “You have a very easy-going way of getting your own way,” Vince states as he sets a pot of water on the stove to boil. I suppose I can see where he might think that. That might even be a fair assessment.  I’m really self-aware. I need to add that to my list of positive attributes.

 “So for the blow job, can I tie you up?”

 “No.” The answer is firm, his lips twitching like the question was amusing.

 Humph. “Can you tie me up?”

 “How are you going to give me a blow job if you’re tied up?”

 Dammit! Worst. Wife. Ever. “I suppose without my hands it’d be more like you using my mouth to masturbate while I did nothing, wouldn’t it?”

 “What a visual you paint, Payton.”

 “You’re still welcome to tie me up though. It doesn’t have to be tradesies.”

 “Tradesies,” he mutters with a shake of his head, but he’s smiling as he uncorks the wine and pours two glasses.

 “So, where do you see yourself in five years, Vince?” Might as well dive in with the talking. He looks up from rolling back his shirt sleeves, a look of confusion flashing across his face replaced with an amused narrowing of his eyes.

 “Excuse me? Is this an interview?” He laughs, placing a pan on my stovetop before rummaging through my cabinets for a bottle of olive oil.

 “This is serious. You’ll be old and divorced. Think about that.”

 “An annulment doesn’t count as a divorce. It doesn’t count as anything.”

 “Try telling that to Britney. She’s gonna have that nineteen-hour marriage on her Wikipedia page until she dies. Wikipedia, Vince. That’s forever.”

 “Okay, whoa. Let’s step back a moment here.”

 “Do you need a wife with benefits?” I press on, because taking a step back doesn’t sound like it will get me anywhere.

 “What exactly does that mean?”

 “I have health insurance. Do you need health insurance? I could add you to my plan. It’s very reasonable, adding a spouse only costs like an extra two hundred dollars a month. It’s a really good plan, too. At least that’s what Lydia told me and she works in Human Resources so she would know. I’m no benefits package expert.”

 “That’s not what the term ‘with benefits’ means.”

 “Listen, in this case I think it’s exactly what that means. Society is the one who turned the word ‘benefit’ into something dirty.”

 “So there’d be no sex in this exchange?”

 “Don’t be ridiculous. Of course there’d be sex.”

 “Did you just talk yourself into a circle?”

 “Maybe.” Dammit.

Release Blitz: Royally Yours by Emma Chase

RoyallyYours availnowbanner.jpg
Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco. 
It’s a big deal. When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning. What she isn’t…is married.

It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want. Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty.

Even Queens. Especially them.

Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.

And a sacred promise keeps him there. To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure.

Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever. Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story. This is theirs.

Release Blitz & Review: The Day The Jerk Started Falling by Max Monroe

BOOK TWO_JERK DUET_TheDayTheJerkStartedFalling_Cover

The Cover: I love a cover where it showcases the leading lady, they are rare and far in between and this one of the best covers I have seen in a long time. I love the model and the look on her face, the font and coloring all go so well together. It’s perfect! 

Basics: The Day The Jerk Started Falling was released on October 25th 2018, is part of the Kindle Unlimited program and is the second book in the Jerk Duet. Genre wise The Day The Jerk Started Falling belongs to contemporary romance and romcom. 

Description: My name is Oliver Arsen, but my mates call me Ollie. I live hard and love harder, and it’s love that usually gets me in the most trouble.  According to the greater population, I’m the ultimate jerk.

My affection tends to be short-lived—a quality I’ve been assured multiple times by the fairer sex isn’t becoming—and the leaving part of loving and leaving has always come natural. At least, it used to. Until her. Luciana Wright.

She’s an American bombshell and my sister’s best friend—a woman so wrong for me, it’s written in the waves. And she’s the reason we’re all here. The reason I have to go back to explain how it all went wrong. To the day the jerk started falling.

Overall thoughts: I feel like there is a certain recipe when it comes to writing a great duet and depending on the genre of book it’s really not that hard. Yet there are some authors that attempt to do duets and completely miss the mark. Max Monroe are not those authors. 

The romcom continues between Luciana and Ollie in The Day The Jerk Started Falling! But this time the point of view (POV) is from Ollie, his side of the story; which I found to very refreshing but in romance books we always don’t get to hear from the male perspective and since this was a duet I thought it was perfect. One book from the woman’s POV and the second from the male’s POV. Brilliant! 

The Day The Jerk Started Falling is laugh out loud funny and honestly Passionflix needs to get a hold of the rights for these books ASAP because they would make the PERFECT romcom movie that rivals How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days or He’s Just Not That Into You. No seriously this book is that good and hilarious! Despite the humor I really think any twenty something person and even older can relate to the sort of situation in this duet and enjoy it immensely. The Day The Jerk Started Falling is definitely one of the funniest romcom books of the years and I’m really grateful I had the chance to review it!

TNB banner.jpg
When I was a child he brought me back from the brink of death. Since that day I have borne his mark, a black star in the center of my left palm. The villagers say it brands me as evil. I think it means something far worse. It marks me as his.

The disease that nearly killed me has returned to the village and children are dying. I’m the only one who dares to climb the mountain and learn his secrets. In exchange I’m to clean his house and help with his strange experiments, but Meremon wants more. He wants me. And it isn’t long before I discover that his demands are as twisted as his experiments.

Warning: This story is a dark fantasy romance with scenes of non-consent and dubious consent. Additionally, Meremon is a necromancer and enjoys unusual things.

Release Blitz & Review: The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks by Max Monroe

The Cover: I think this cover is okay, the model is attractive and all but there’s nothing super wow about it and his expression is a bit strange. Overall it’s a nice cover but it’s not a cover that makes me want to buy the actual book but stick with owning the Kindle version instead.

Basics: The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks was released on October 18th 2018 and is 328 pages long. Genre wise The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks belongs to contemporary romance and rom com.

Description: I’m Luciana Wright. Everyone calls me Lucky, but when it comes to love, I’m anything but. I have a long history of dating the wrong men. You know the ones I’m talking about. The beautiful, charming guys who are quite literally too good to be true. The ones who are impulsive in love and prefer short flings over long-term relationships.

I’m talking about the jerks. The guys who taste so good, but are so very bad. After going through the most ridiculous breakup in the history of breakups, I thought I’d learned my lesson. I officially put myself into jerk rehab and committed to changing my ways.

But, let’s be real here, love is never that easy. Especially when an arrogant, charming, he-devil of a sexy alpha man gets involved. Aussie accent. Tanned skin. Muscular, surfer bod. Gorgeous brown eyes. And the kind of sexy smile that brings women to their knees.

Oh, did I mention that he’s also my best friend’s brother? Yeah. This story, my story, it’s a real doozy you guys. The day I stopped falling for jerks, I met Oliver Arsen—the biggest jerk of all.

Overall thoughts: This was my first Max Monroe and it did not disappoint! I was really intrigued by the premise of this book and the introduction of The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks caught my full attention. The authors explained that they were inspired by “jerks” they had encountered when they were younger and everything clicked.

Of course during some point of our lives we all have that one crush OR that one person that is so mean to you, but in reality is acting like a jerk because they like you. Doesn’t really add up and it’s completely counter productive but hey, that’s how human brains work unfortunately. (Hence the reason why I wish I was a cat instead most days.)

Luciana is one heck of a relatable character that will in some shape or form I personally feel like the reader will connect with. She’s funny, strong willed and again so relatable, I’m really looking forward to the next book The Day The Jerk Started Falling

Release Blitz: All My Life by Prescott Lane

All My Life, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Prescott Lane is now LIVE!
All My Life_Amazon_KOBO_iBooks.jpg
Blurb: The beginning of any love story starts with the meet.

I’ve known Garrett Hollis since before I can remember, and I’ve loved him just as long.  I loved him while he loved someone else. I loved him when he had a baby with her. I loved him when she left him. The greatest of love stories is that between a dad and his daughter.  I should know. I’ve had a front row seat. First steps, first words, all the big moments.  

Garrett was just a teenager when Mia was born.  I’ve watched him braid his daughter’s hair, hold her hand crossing the street, seen her asleep on his chest.  I’m the best friend, the one they can count on for everything from dance lessons to motherly advice, anything they need.  I’m their go-to girl.

The best part of any love story is the happily ever after. But what if the happily ever after doesn’t include you? All my life, that’s how long I’ve loved him. Of course, he’s clueless. A stand-alone, contemporary romance.

Release Blitz, Excerpt & Review: Cards of Love: The Moon by Sierra Simone

The Cover: I. LOVE. THIS. COVER. Oh my gosh! The coloring of it, the lines and style..it just screams tarot and it is very sensual and beautiful. It fits Nimue and Merlin perfectly, I love it and I need it on my bookshelf ASAP. 

Basics: Cards of Love: The Moon was released on October 5th 2018 and is 100 pages long. It is a novella that ties in with The New Camelot series. Genre wise The Moon belongs to novella and contemporary romance. 

Description: She’s angry that I left.  I’m angry that I died.  It’s the trouble with our two lives: we don’t only have one past to work through, but two.  Double the pain, twice the betrayal.  A million times the tragedy.

***The Moon is the story of Merlin and Nimue from the New Camelot trilogy.  It’s recommended that you read the trilogy first, as there are American King spoilers in The Moon.***

(Cards of Love is a massive multi-author project, a series of love letters to the mysterious and inspirational world of tarot cards.  These can be read in any order, as the only thing the Cards of Love books share is their common inspiration from the world of tarot.)
The Moon Teaser 2.jpg
Overall thoughts: I love and adore Sierra Simone; she is one my favorite authors ever but I did not enjoy The Moon. Let me explain, it wasn’t because of the story or characters it was honestly because I had this idea of Merlin in my head and clearly Sierra has her version and they just didn’t add up. First of all, The Moon is a companion novella to The New Camelot series, so I would definitely recommend reading the trilogy first before reading The Moon. My main issue with this novella was just the fact that I viewed Merlin to be something he isn’t and I just didn’t enjoy it as usual because again, my idea of Merlin was completely different from Sierra’s. Which is my issue. As readers you aren’t always going to like how a character is portrayed and this was one of those times. 

Besides that, The Moon was beautifully written. I love a well written point of view from the male perspective and Sierra delivered that and more. Merlin and Nimue’s story is beautifully tragic with an attraction that is so static you feel it in your bones as you are reading. That is definitely a gift of Sierra’s, she writes in a way that makes you feel so connected to her characters that you feel everything they are feeling. Overall The Moon was a great addition to the New Camelot series and great novella, if you are a fan of The New Camelot series or Simone’s work in general I highly suggest you read it.

Excerpt: A hiss in the darkness, then a flame, bright and dancing and unwelcome.

 A match, I think, and then I think, whyAnd then: where am I?

 “You’re awake,” says a voice like water.  A voice I love.  It still doesn’t help me figure out where I am.

 “Am I?” I ask.  “Awake?”

 Like I said earlier, I don’t dream as such, but when I close my eyes, the memories and visions are there, dogging my sleep.  And I think maybe—yes, there is also a memory like this.  A memory of a dark-haired girl and a cave sparkling with light, the night air heavy with the ecstatic cries we fed it.

 “You are awake, Merlin.”  The flame moves, calves another flame, and then is blown out.  A candle now glows softly against the face of a woman standing at the end of the bed I’m on.

 Dark brows arch high over clear blue eyes and a long nose curves gracefully down the woman’s oval face, framed by a high forehead and cheekbones, and a beautiful, if narrow, jaw.  Her lips are on the thin side, but perfectly sculpted, giving her an expressive, fascinating mouth.  Coffee-dark hair hangs in glossy sheets around her face and down her back.

 She’s haunting.  Haunting even as a girl, but now even more so as a woman.

“Nimue,” I say, and for the first time I notice how thirsty I am.  I make to sit up—and realize my hands are tied to the bed. Nimue sets the candle down on an end table, and it illuminates the space enough to show me that I’m indeed in a room and not in the damp mouth of a cave. It means it’s now and not then, which I suppose I should be grateful for.

 After all, I died then. A silver key glints from just below the smile of her clavicle, the bottom tip of it pointing to the sweet valley between her breasts I used to know so well.  They are small and pert—her body still the lithe dancer’s body she had as a girl—and my flesh responds to the sight of those little handfuls, the memory of them.  The fantasy of her dusky nipples dragging along the underside of my aching cock is enough to have my body warming, and that’s when I really become aware that I’m not only tied to the bed, but I’m also dressed in a pair of black boxer briefs and nothing else.

 Well, nothing else except for the padded cuff around my ankle. Nimue leans forward to untie my wrist, which leaves the front of her swishy dress gaping forward enough that I can see those nipples now, dark rose and erect.

I’d tasted them frequently once upon a time. Once upon a time, twice. In another life, I’d known the feel of her breasts against my lips and tongue better than I’d known almost anything else.

 With one of my wrists freed, Nimue straightens and nods at the other.  “You can untie yourself.  You’ll find that the chain allows you more than enough length to do everything you need.  I’m obviously trusting you not to do anything self-destructive, but should the need arise, I can take away this particular freedom.”  She says it cheerfully, almost as if the idea of taking away my freedom delights her.

 The key on her chest glints as she steps back, and I understand that it’s the key that unlocks my cuff—the same cuff that is connected to a ring in the floor by a length of slender chain.

Anger comes. And with it shame. And with that, fear. I died once this way, and I’d rather not do it again. I lunge for my other wrist to untie it, needing to be free, needing to reach for Nimue to kiss her or kill her—but by the time I untie myself, she’s out the door with it shut and locked behind her.

Release Blitz: Hot For His Girl by Rachel Blaufeld

What happens when two bloggers fall for each other? A new blog is born.
Hot For His Girl, an all-new standalone new adult romance from Rachel Blaufeld is LIVE!
Blurb: Andonia “Andi” Schwartz is the kind of gal you love to hate. Snarky, skinny, and jaded, Andi’s goodness lies hidden beneath her sharp edges. But it’s there . . . this independent single mom has it going on.

Reid Fellows is a lovable dude. Bespectacled tenure-track statistics professor by day, shirtless blogger by night, he’s a catch on paper and easy on the eyes.

Andi wields her power and unruly commentary from behind her laptop as the anonymous proprietor of The UnAffectionate Blogger. Reid’s blog, Grill and Groom, began on a dare. Now, he regularly shows his abs of steel while grilling.

He may love this gig more than his day job. She needs her page views and advertisers to support her daughter. Until the two meet and spin a web online and IRL . . . in real life.

About the Author: 
Rachel Blaufeld is a bestselling author of Romantic Suspense, New Adult, Coming-of-Age Romance, and Sports Romance. A recent poll of her readers described her as insightful, generous, articulate, and spunky. Originally a social worker, Rachel creates broken yet redeeming characters. She’s been known to turn up the angst like cranking up the heat in the dead of winter.

A devout coffee drinker and doughnut eater, Rachel spends way too many hours in local coffee shops, downing the aforementioned goodies while she plots her ideas. Her tales may all come with a side of angst and naughtiness, but end as lusciously as her treats.

As a side note, Blaufeld, also a long-time blogger and an advocate of woman-run anything, is fearless about sharing her opinion. She captured the ears of stay-at-home and working moms on her blog, BacknGrooveMom, chronicling her adventures in parenting tweens and running a business, often at the same time. To her, work/life/family balance is an urban legend, but she does her best.

Rachel has also blogged for The Huffington Post and Modern Mom. Most recently, her insights can be found in USA TODAY, where she shares conversations at “In Bed with a Romance Author” and reading recommendations over at “Happy Ever After.”

Rachel lives around the corner from her childhood home in Pennsylvania with her family and two beagles. Her obsessions include running, coffee, basketball, icing-filled doughnuts, antiheroes, and mighty fine epilogues.

When she isn’t writing, she can be found courtside, tweeting about hoops as her son plays, or walking around the house wearing earplugs while her other son, the drummer, bangs away.

Release Blitz & Review: The Evolution Of Man by Skye Warren

The Cover: I think the cover for The Evolution of Man is elegant and is spot on for what the book is. However since the cover for Survival of the Richest focused on Harper it would’ve been nice if the second cover for the duet focused on the men. It does in a way but not the way I imagined it to be? It’s still pretty though! 

Basics: The Evolution of Man was released on September 24th 2018 and is 260 pages long.  Genre wise The Evolution of Man belongs to contemporary romance, new adult and love triangle. 

Description:  I never wanted to fall for man. And definitely not two men.

They tear me apart until I don’t know how I’ll ever be whole again. Until I’m not sure I want to be. How can I choose between two halves of myself?

Overall thoughts: I want to start off by saying I love and adore Skye Warren. I think she is one of the best and move creative romance writers out there; however that being said…I did not like The Evolution of Man and I am so bummed out about it! The first part of the book I was really into and couldn’t put down, but then something just happened and things changed.

I just didn’t like how the story went honestly! I thought it was rushed and a bit messy in places. The characters were great, their chemistry was on point but just the way the story was going….I was honestly sitting here reading it and I just felt so confused! I really don’t know how to explain it! Maybe it was because Survival of the Richest was 354 pages long and The Evolution of Man was only 260 pages long? I don’t know but I finished the book and just felt SO disappointed and confused! Plus the ending was rushed and really didn’t explain everything. I know that there will be a bonus epilogue Skye said she plans on releasing so maybe that will clear things up? 

I didn’t like The Evolution of Man, it had great qualities but overall it was just disappointing to me. THAT BEING SAID, I love Skye Warren and will continue to read and review her books. I also think you should still grab The Trust Fund duet because just because I didn’t like it, doesn’t me that you won’t! And I loved Survival of the Richest! I just didn’t like the second one in this duet, but again I still think you should read it!
