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!

Review: Wicked Player by Stacey Lynn

WickedPlayer-ebook
The Cover: I have liked all the Rough Riders book covers but I think Wicked Player is my favorite! I love the black and purple colors, the font and I really think the model staring down the reader is very sexy and alluring. My only issue with this cover is that I wish I could see the rest of the cover model’s head. 

Basics: Wicked Player by Stacey Lynn was released on January 29th 2019, published by Stacey Lynn Books, is the third book in the Rough Riders series and is 273 pages long. Genre wise Wicked Player belongs to contemporary romance, sports romance, forbidden romance and erotica. 

Description: Gage Bryant has the best hands and the quickest feet of any wide receiver in football. He also has a secret—one he’ll do anything to protect.

He’s a member of The Velvet Club. With airtight non disclosure agreements, playing at Velvet gives him the freedom to assert his dominance and control in a way that not only serves him on the football field, but the way he craves in the bedroom. What he doesn’t expect is for his most recent partner to be one of the reporters assigned to follow him around in the weeks before he opens a new wing at the local children’s hospital.

When it’s clear Elizabeth Hayes has no idea he’s the man who had her blindfolded and bound beneath him, Gage realizes things just got a lot more interesting. He can have her body at night, giving her all the pleasure she begs for in a way he needs. And he can keep his heart, as well as his identity, out of their encounters. After all, the absolute worst thing that could happen would be to have this sexy little reporter reveal how wicked he truly is.

Overall thoughts: I was so excited to see that the Rough Riders series by Stacey Lynn was continuing! I am not that big into sports romance books, especially football sports romance books but I gave the Rough Riders series a try and loved them! When I saw the cover for Wicked Player along with the blurb my interest increased greatly because the first two books Dirty Player and Filthy Player were straight up contemporary romances with some intensity but nothing along the lines of hardcore erotica or BDSM. So it delighted that Wicked Player was going to be a bit different. 

Stacey Lynn’s Luminous series (which you can find here: https://bit.ly/2Wn7kbi) is focused heavily on erotica and BDSM and in my personal opinion are some of the best, well written erotic/BDSM books in the romance genre world. Wicked Player is a book that definitely belongs in the Luminous series because HOLY COW this book is HOT. Again in relation to the Rough Riders series, Wicked Player focuses on one of the famous football stars from the fictional NFL football team of the Rough Riders. Several team members have fallen already and are starting their happily ever afters, while elsewhere one of the teammates believes because of his status as a professional football player that he will be alone. 

That doesn’t he will be constantly alone however because Gage Bryant wide receiver of the Rough Riders frequents a BDSM club, the Velvet Club. He be as wicked as he wants at Velvet and have full confidentiality too; that is until he stumbles upon the beautiful and alluring reporter Elizabeth Hayes. The connection between them is more than sex and is special, they both realize this. Problem is Elizabeth has no idea who she’s playing with at Velvet and Gage is trying to find the constant need and want for a woman who could ruin his life at any second. 

Wicked Player was such a great read! I devoured this book within a day and there were so many aspects of it that I just loved! The forbidden romance features, the way Elizabeth and Gage connect with one another and overall just the story really held my attention. Another part of the book I really loved was that usually it takes some time for a couple to get together but Wicked Player has Gage and Elizabeth get together immediately. Usually something that annoys me, but in this instance I LOVED because of what was going on in the story (you have to Wicked Player to find out what I mean!)

I had a few minor issues with Wicked Player, small things that you might not mind but I did. I was a bit frustrated because I felt like when things started to really go well and the book was going great, it seemed to just…wrap up and end. I wish Elizabeth and Gage’s story was longer! I also didn’t like how literally this and that happened (no spoilers!) then everything seemed to get resolved quickly. I felt like you could blink and suddenly everything was fixed and the book ended. I didn’t like that at all! My issues aside I really loved Wicked Player and it will definitely be one of my top sport romance books of the year!
