Release Day Blitz: Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.

No questions asked.

Think about it.

Or don’t.

Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

–Simon

Release Blitz & Review: Mercy by Debra Anastasia

We are excited to share another great read today – Mercy by Debra Anastasia is now live! This book is raw and gritty and definitely a must-read! I hope you’ll check out the awesome teasers and my review.
Happy Reading!
~Jenn

 

Title: Mercy
Author: Debra Anastasia
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 21, 2017
Blurb
He taught me to kill. Murder is in my blood now. It runs
through my veins and though I hide the monster I see in the mirror with ink, it
doesn’t keep him from coming out.
My street name is Mercy, but I never show any. Except
for
 her. I watch Becca, though she doesn’t know. She saved
me a long time ago; the day my father killed my mother. Her bravery turned her
into a target.
My father holds a grudge and knife with the same
proficiency, and Becca is the focus of his hatred. And I’m the only monster who
can save her.
 jenn-review
4 – 4.5 Stars
Debra Anastasia delivers a gritty and raw and unlikely love story with Mercy. In true Debra style these are not the perfect cookie-cutter characters with a nice, sweet life. Nope, this story is filled with drama, angst, pain and murder, but she also works in her style of humor and sweet love.
Nix meets Becca on one of the worst days of his life when he is only a young boy. He’s just witnessed his mother’s murder, is absolutely terrified of his monster of a father and while in the grocery store an awesome little girl stands up to his father, telling him not to hurt Nix. This one event will change not only Nix’s life, but Becca’s as well.
Years later Nix has become a completely different person, he no longer resembles his father, is known as Mercy on the streets and is covered in ink but he still watches out for that superhero of a little girl. He watches from a distance but he’s made it a mission to protect Becca from any evil his father may have planned. Becca on the other hand doesn’t know what’s out there, she is trying to live her life, working and dodging the men her mother sets her up with.
I don’t want to give anything away, I think Becca and Fenix have to be experienced, but this was an intense and exciting read. And I just have to say I LOVE this cover!  Going into this book I thought I knew what to expect but these characters and their story was so much more complex that I expected. I loved Becca and Fenix so much!! Fenix is broken and damaged and he just breaks my heart. He’s been through so much in his life and despite how scary he looks he really does have a wonderful and tender heart. He doesn’t stop sacrificing to save others, especially Becca. Becca, still that awesome sassy superhero girl! I absolutely loved this girl and who she becomes – I mean holy moly Debra, you did something awesome. This book was a fantastic journey that had my emotions going all over the place, what a great ride! If you’re a fan of Debra’s Poughkeepsie series I think you’ll love this book!

forcing Adaline to face an addiction she never could’ve imagined.
This is what
happens when one person loves beyond the craving and the other craves beyond
the loving.

 

jenn-review

4 – 4.5 Stars

Teenage love and angst at it finest! Oh man, E.K. Blair delivers one hell of a story filled with that first-love, emotionally charged read full of drama, love, addiction and high school. Adaline and Kayson were both very likable characters for me, even in the rough moments. This book really took me back to that YA/NA feeling when every emotion runs high.

I think the blurb of this book does a great job keeping the bulk of this story a mystery and I certainly don’t want to spoil that. That being said, I really felt like I experienced this story, I felt what Adaline and Kayson were going through and I was totally immersed in their story. While E.K. Blair definitely hits all the marks for that first love feeling, there are some very unique situations in this book for these characters. I definitely think it is an interesting twist, especially for characters so young.

One of things I enjoyed most about this story is that while yes, these characters are in high school, it did not feel like an immature read. It’s powerful and makes you think about dealing with emotions and issues at that age. I loved these characters, and not just Adaline and Kason but the friends as well. This book does end on a cliffhanger but it was totally worth it and part two is only a few months away… Definitely a great read from E.K. Blair and I’m anxiously awaiting what happens next!

Release Blitz & Review: Under the Boardwalk by Felice Stevens

Under the Boardwalk an all-new, heart-warming MM romance by Felice Stevens is LIVE!

20205562_1930301097249331_643220376_o

Under the Boardwalk
by Felice Stevens
Publication Date: August 10th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

Beneath the famous Brooklyn landmark, love is hidden but not denied:

All his life, Alexi Kharpov has dreamed of traveling to unknown exciting places instead of working at his family’s frozen custard stand on the famous Coney Island boardwalk. Every year is the same until a gorgeous man picks a spot in front of his stand to sing, captivating him with his beautiful voice. After two summers of listening, it might finally be the time for him to cross that boardwalk and take a chance.

Opera singer Cameron Maxwell has traveled the world, but the sight of the beautiful man serving custard to tourists touches his heart like nothing ever has before. A summer fling might be exactly what he needs to put his problems out of his mind, but the last thing Cam expects is to want the summer to last forever.

It’s a season of discovery for both men who learn to dig deep within their heads and hearts to decide whether secrets old and new should remain buried, or if love is too important to keep hidden under the boardwalk.

 

jenn-review

4 Stars

Once again, Felice Stevens creates a sweet, loveable story that goes right to the heart! Under the Boardwalk is a touching story about two men who set out to enjoy a summer fling and end up with so much more! I absolutely adored Alexi and Cam and their journey together.

Alexi works in his father’s custard stand at the beach and every day wishes there was more in his life, he wants to travel and have new experiences. He notices the cute guy with the beautiful voice who sings on the boardwalk, but never has to guys to say hello. Cam just wants to sing, he’s traveled and seen the world and now just wants to sing. He lives his life in the present, and after watching the guy in the custard stand for a summer it’s time to make his move. A great summer fling is just what he wants. These two have instant chemistry together and while they both intend to keep it simple for the summer, real and deep feelings develop fast for Cam and Alexi.

These two are so perfect for each other, yes so very different but also so perfect. Cam comes from a loving, supportive and open family while Alexi’s Russian family is incredibly traditional. As the two spend time together, Alexi sees what it is like to be open about who he is and what he wants. I loved seeing that growth in him, really embracing who he is and having Cam by his side now matter what.

This is a shorter story, but Felice manages to pack a lot of story in there. I really felt for these two, all of the emotions as they figured it all out! There are sweet, tender swoony moments, hot passion and beautiful young love. Sure these two are tested, but their love is real. Both of these men grow together and find happiness in each other. Felice Stevens delivers another emotion packed story that just makes my heart so very happy!

About Felice:

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, My characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love, but getting there is oh so fun and oh so sexy.

I live in New York City with my husband and two children. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass (or two of red wine). I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there are bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

BLURB

Kyle Vaughn had three goals in life: become a vet, find the man of his dreams, and start a family. He easily checked off the first item on the list when he took over his grandfather’s veterinary practice. Too bad he wasn’t as lucky in love.

Chaz Hamilton took a leap of faith when he decided to pursue a career in writing, but one best seller didn’t mean he could quit his day job. All work and no play threatened to make Chaz a very dull man when the only romantic action he saw was in the pages of his manuscript. Too bad he couldn’t write his own happily every after.

Circumstances pushed the two men together, and one magical kiss beneath fireworks and stars changed everything. Kyle knew his luck had finally turned around and Chaz found a man far better than any book boyfriend ever written. There was just one problem. Chaz has kept a secret from Kyle that could ruin their chance at a beautiful life together.

Kyle and Chaz learn that the best-laid plans often go awry, the heart has a mind of its own, and the greatest love is unscripted.

The books in the Road to Blissville series can be read either as standalone books or as part of the series. This book contains sexually explicit material and is intended for mature adults 18 and older.

UL Teaser 1

jenn-review

3.5

This was a cute, sweet story and I really liked the idea of it! I love small town stories, especially when they become a series. I really liked Kyle, he is such a love-able sweetheart but for some reason I really struggled with Chaz a lot of the time. I understood his hang-ups and felt for him, but I really just had a hard time connecting with him.

There is definitely a sweet connection between Kyle and Chaz, one that’s been building for quite some time. These two really do seem made for each other, their fun personalities a great match. I really was happy to see them figure it all out together and not get too hung up on the mistakes. Overall, I enjoyed this story and am definitely curious to see where it goes next!

UL teaser 2

EXCERPT

Chaz stared unblinkingly into my eyes for several awkward moments when I arrived. Our connection broke when he took a deep breath and shifted his features into a mask of cool professionalism, but not before I saw the hurt in his eyes. Hurt? What the hell did he have to feel hurt about? I was the one who put myself out there, and he ignored me.

If asked, I would tell you that my greatest personality trait was my patience and my laid-back attitude was a close second. I rarely lost my temper, but I felt my blood simmering beneath the surface that day. My heart pounded in my chest as fury rose inside me. I had half a mind to toss him over my shoulder and carry him off so I could kiss a confession out of him. I hadn’t mistaken the desire in his eyes when he looked at me nor had I imagined the sparks that flew between us when our lips first touched. I just needed to find out why Chaz turned cold on me so suddenly.

“Jazz is running a few minutes behind,” Chaz coolly said as if he spoke to someone who hadn’t experienced the pleasure of his tongue in their mouth. “Please help yourself to a beverage and a magazine while you wait in the reception area.”

That little imp was dismissing me, and I wasn’t about to… My thoughts were interrupted by the sounds of heavy work boots walking across the polished hardwood floor of the salon. It wasn’t a sound I associated with the classy salon, so I turned to see who was wearing them. My mouth dropped open at the sight of the sexy stud approaching Chaz and me, but I don’t think he even noticed I was alive because he couldn’t seem to tear his eyes off of Chaz. Was this guy the reason Chaz didn’t answer my calls or return my messages.

My eyes raked over the tall, dark stranger with bulging biceps and perfect pecs straining the fabric of his white T-shirt that was three sizes too small. His tool belt hung low over jeans much too tight to wear while constructing anything but wet dreams.

“Hi Andy,” Chaz said cheerfully. “How’s it going?”

I didn’t care if Andy constructed orphanages in third world countries in his free time; I hated his fucking guts because of the way he looked at Chaz and the way Chaz returned his interest. Andy leaned artfully against the high counter of the reception desk and smiled at Chaz.

“It could’ve been better,” Andy said. “A certain someone could’ve joined me for a drink like I asked.”

Chaz laughed uneasily and darted a glance in my direction to judge my reaction. I thought the soft blush that bloomed across his cheeks was adorable and wished that I was the one who put it there. His eyes widened when they met mine, and he licked his bottom lip nervously. Could he sense how angry I was right then? Was anger even the right emotion? It felt more like… jealousy. I could feel that I wasn’t the only one who had ideas what Chaz could do with his sexy tongue. I turned to face my new nemesis.

“I don’t believe we’ve met yet,” I said to the newcomer. “I’m Dr. Kyle Vaughn.” Even to my own ears, I sounded a bit pretentious, but I couldn’t take it back once the words left my mouth. I extended my hand to him, which he accepted in a vice-like grip.

“Andy Mason,” he told me. “Carpenter.” I could tell he wasn’t impressed by my title and didn’t like the possessive gleam he saw in my eyes. I narrowed my eyes as the beefcake squeezed my hand harder instead of releasing it.

“Guys,” Chaz said, trying to interrupt the standoff between us. We ignored his attempts and continued to stare one another down like two MMA fighters at the press conference before fight night. “Andy.” The flirty way Chaz said Andy’s name penetrated the carpenter’s brain and he jerked his attention back to Chaz.

“Yeah?” He asked, sounding hopeful.

“What’s the real reason you came downstairs?” Chaz asked, his flirty tone replaced with a professional one. “As flattering as it would be, I’m pretty sure you’re a man on a mission.”

“I’m a multitasker,” Andy boasted.

M/M ROMANCE

RELEASE DATE: 06.26.17

Regret Cover

COVER DESIGN: KANAXA

BLURB

When Brian “Brin” Schubert’s condo floods, he takes his co-worker up on the offer to stay on his crappy futon for a while. The last thing he expects is for his friend’s roommate to be the one guy he despises the most. The same guy who stomped on his heart senior year of high school. And by the looks of the girl on his arm, the same man who’s still deep inside the closet.

Nicholas Dell never predicted that eleven years later, one of his greatest regrets would show up on his doorstep down on his luck. Nick has made some terrible mistakes—story of his life—and he’s been paying for them ever since. And if the guilt and shame aren’t enough, his first crush had to turn into one of the sexiest men he’s ever laid eyes on.

Nick and Brin have weeks to steer clear of each other. Weeks to avoid strangling each other. But when stubbornness leads to skyrocketing sexual tension, hate-sex doesn’t seem like such an awful way to work through their frustration. Except hate is a powerful emotion, especially when it’s turned inward. And in Nick’s case he’s been drowning in a sea of self-loathing for so long, he can’t see his way out.

As Brin reconnects with Nick, his perception of what really happened in their past begins to change. He’s finally ready to forgive him and take a second chance on the one guy who stirs him like no other. But Nick’s demons are complicated, heart-wrenching…demanding. So devastating, he might never allow himself true happiness—even with the one man who’s always owned his heart.

5 Stars

I absolutely loved this book and I can tell you right now that Brin and Nick are going on the favorites list! This book was just everything and got me right in the heart! I’m a huge fan of the enemies-to-lovers trope, I love the passion found in those relationships and Christina Lee nails it 100%!! This story really wasn’t what I expected initially but holy moly I absolutely adored it!

When Brin’s condo floods due to a burst pipe he needs a place to stay for a few weeks while they are making repairs and it’s his best friend and co-worker Elijah who offers up his place. He has a roommate Brin hasn’t met but it’s only a few weeks so it shouldn’t be an issue. But when Brin finally meets the roommate, he’s stunned to see Nick, a guy he knew from high school, the guy he tutored and messed around with and the guy who broke his heart. Nick is just as shocked to see Brin but he hopes he may be able to finally get the chance to apologize. The two try to get along, just for the few weeks Brin is staying there and as they do the walls come down and the truth comes out.

I loved Brin and Nick, absolutely freaking adored them but Nick was not at all what I expected. This poor guy is so very broken, trying to ‘make up for’ a tragic past that he doesn’t believe he deserves to be happy himself. When Brin comes back into his life, everything in his attempt at an orderly world comes crashing down all around him. My heart ached for him and what he was dealing with, the pain that never seemed to leave. Together though, these two are something so special! Brin doesn’t want to let Nick in again, he doesn’t think he can take that heartbreak twice, but the man is already in his heart. As they work through their past and their pain they learn more about each other and finally Nick reveals his pain to Brin, making him finally understand.

This wasn’t the easiest read, it absolutely shattered my heart at times (just get the tissues ready) but it was so very emotional and beautiful. Brin and Nick are such well developed, wonderful characters and their journey together is real and raw. As they come to understand each other and heal the love between these two just melted me. This was a story I felt, not just read, it’s one that went straight to my heart and I know it will stay there. Ms. Lee does an amazing job of bringing these characters to life and filling with so much emotion it is felt off the pages. I adored this book from beginning to end, it’s one of those books that as soon as I finished I wanted to start again just to experience it all one more time.

EXCERPT

“Brin, let me introduce you to my roommate,” Elijah said as I followed him through the short hallway to the living room. “This is Nick and his friend, Sarah.”

Sarah’s curly locks were nearly as blond as mine and Nick’s black hair was mostly tucked beneath a worn blue baseball cap. The two of them were cozy on the couch, Sarah sitting with her legs tucked under her and Nick with his ankle crossed over his knee. They were eating Chinese food off paper plates resting in their laps. Sarah simply waved as her mouth was full from a bite of food but Nick responded, “Hey, how you doing?” after swallowing a piece of what looked like an egg roll.

The smell of fried rice hit my nostrils and when my stomach rumbled in response, I realized just how famished I was. I was dying to dive right into the second brown bag resting on the coffee table that more than likely contained my food, but I didn’t want to be rude.

When Nick leaned forward with an outstretched hand, for some reason I zeroed right in on the neatly groomed scruff on his chin. When he tilted his face to look directly into my eyes, I froze, our fingers interlocked. A startled gasp sprang from my lips, and Nick’s eyebrows slammed together in confusion right before they lifted straight to his hairline.

The same cherry-colored lips, with a center dimple drilled into his chin. Those sad, amber-colored eyes that shuttered out the world.

Holy fuck. Elijah’s roommate was Nicholas Dell.

The same Nicholas Dell from Jefferson High who practically ruined me for other guys.

The same Devil’s third baseman that begged his math tutor to suck his cock in the locker room after practice.

And given the female nestled up beside him, it was the same Nicholas Dell who was still deep in the closet.

4 – 4.5 Stars

Wow – this story is just all the smexy feels! Drew’s story isn’t long and drawn out but man, it packs a punch! I really enjoyed this story – Jodi Ellen Malpas delivers an emotional and sensual experience with Drew and Raya for sure!

Drew is an expert and cold and emotionless, but amazing, sex, it’s what he does. Even if his friends around him are settling down and starting families, that’s not what Drew wants. He has his amazing daughter, despite her mother, and his work and the club. When he gets a request from a woman for that exact specialty, cold and emotionless, he thinks he’s the perfect man for the job. What he doesn’t expect is once he meets Raya, everything changes and right from the start it all feels different.

I loved Drew and Raya, especially the way Raya completely knocks Drew on his butt! He doesn’t expect to feel and oh man does she make him feel. And since this isn’t a long read with a lot of build up I don’t want to take away from that journey so I’m just going to say it is hot and sweet and all kinds of wonderful! I laughed and winced and my heart pounded and it was great! Jodi Ellen Malpas really delivers for Drew even if he and that precious Georgia have to work for it! I loved getting that peek at Jesse and Ava and their family and damn if Drew didn’t steal my heart!

This really is a wonderful addition to this series, seeing Drew challenged by Raya and how it all comes together. These two certainly weren’t looking for love, but hey – it always comes when you least expect it! Another great read from Jodi!

ALL I AM: DREW’S STORY (A THIS MAN NOVELLA)

Blog Excerpt

‘What do you want, Raya?’

She steps toward me tentatively, as if she’s questioning what she’s doing. And when she

reaches me, her chest pressed to mine, she gazes up at me. ‘I don’t know.’ Her eyes are wild and

unsure. ‘But I know that every time we’re close, something powerful takes over. And you’re trying

hard to fight it. You’re warm and cold. What are you scared of?’

‘You.’ My mouth is on her before I can think better of it, and I’ve lifted her from her feet

before my tongue breaches the seam on her lips. We should talk, but this is the only thing I know

what to say right now, and when her arms circle my shoulders, her mouth opening up, inviting me

in, I know she’s okay with it. I know she gets it.

With one arm around her waist holding her to me and one secured on the nape of her neck, I

walk to my office, my kiss deep, my blood racing, my heart bouncing off my ribcage. I set her on her

feet and take the hem of her dress, pulling it up over her head, losing her lips for just a second in the

process. She wrenches my shirt open, scattering buttons in the process, her hands immediately

finding my skin beneath. My forward steps encourages her backwards, our kiss deepening as she

unfastens my trousers and I push her knickers down her thighs.

We’re all over the place, desperation getting the better of us, a mess of tongues, hands and

bodies. I pull some strength from nowhere, seize her hands and break our kiss, breathing heavily.

Her unsure brown eyes soon prompts me to start ridding myself of the rest of my clothes, all under

her watchful gaze. Until I’m naked.

‘This wasn’t supposed to happen,’ she whispers.

Blurb
Jodi Morgan is having a bad weekend. After partying a little too hard, she wakes up with a monster
hangover and almost no recollection of the night before. So imagine her
surprise when she looks in her trunk and instead of finding a spare tire, she
finds the last guy she’d danced with before blacking out.

Who is he? How did he get in there? How did he die? And oh dear lord, did she
kill him!?

When her older brother’s best friend offers to help, things start looking up.
They’ve known each other since she was thirteen, and ten years later, he still
treats her like a little kid – surely, committing felonies has to trigger some
sort of spark. Together, they wind up going on an adventure that takes them all
over Los Angeles. From raves to penthouses to strip clubs. All in the search
for the answer to her question.

Who is the dead guy in my trunk!?

Warning: This book contains some dark humor, a lot of witty banter, and two
characters making more bad decisions than good ones. Also contains adult
themes, language, and graphic sexual activity.

 

4.5 Stars
Oh wow – what a freaking ride! This book was so not what I expected, but it really was a fun, thrilling ride! Stylo Fantome has created a fantastic mix of humor and suspense and  a few ‘what did I just read’ moments thrown in. Jo and Archer are fantastic, if dysfunctional, characters!
After a night of hard partying, Jodi wakes up the next morning with a nasty hangover and a dead body in her trunk. No really, a dead body! Not knowing who he is or how he ended up there she enlists the help of Archer, her brother’s best friend and her long time crush. Together these two set out to try to figure who the dead man is and how he ended up in Jo’s car.
So, I don’t want to spoil a minute of this hilarious trip for anyone so I will just say this is a must-read. I laughed and cringed and laughed some more as these two stumble through their quest finding trouble everywhere they go! I loved the twists and turns, I never knew what to expect next. This book is fast paced, action packed and so inappropriately funny from start to finish. I truly enjoyed how different this story was, no frilly good girl and rich prince to save the day, nope these characters are gritty and raw and wonderfully crazy!

Author Bio
Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since … forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
