Blurb

Vincent: Forgetting about Eve was the plan. Finding her at a party on my college campus was the last thing I expected.

But letting her go again isn’t an option—not this time. Juggling the life I want with the one I was born into may be near impossible, but for her, it’s a risk I’m willing to take.

My world has turned into a house of cards, where one wrong move can send it all crashing down…and us with it.

Eve: Finally at a prestigious university—and on the path to living my dreams—I’ve left the darkness of the Blue Houses behind. Still, a whole new host of problems await me.

Vincent is here.

He’s king of the school, complete with a society princess by his side. I thought I wanted to know what he was hiding, but unlocking his biggest secret leads me into entirely new territory laced with danger
and lust…one I’m not sure I’ll survive.

My Review

In Book 1 of Jessica Ruben’s Vincent and Eve series, Eve rose above her mother’s constant neglect and verbal abuse, the Blue Houses’ violence, and her poor girl circumstances; she achieved her goal, making it out of the ghetto and giving herself every advantage to never return, which means that she’s not going to abuse this chance, even when things become a lot more complicated due to Vincent’s celebrity status and presence on campus as well as Eve’s struggle to differentiate between what’s real and what’s show when it comes to who Vincent associates with and what his role is in the family business.

A day of reckoning seems inevitable for Vincent and Eve, not only because of the dangers of Vincent’s world and his status as a made man destined to takeover for his father, but also because of the reality of their feelings for each other and the threat that poses to their current lives as well as their futures.

Ruben makes sure that her readers understand the difficult position that Vincent is in; he’s attempting to prove to Eve that what they have is real and that he wants to be with her, while still doing what needs to be done to appease his father and honor the code he lives by. This is definitely not an easy feat given the circumstances he has to deal with when it comes to the various roles he must play, which means eventually something has to give.

Eve, once again, feels like she doesn’t belong, partly due to the duality of Vincent’s life and how it makes her feel but also because she continues to question her relationship with him as well as the superficiality of those around her. Eve is in an extremely tenuous position, and I can’t blame her for her feelings of insecurity or her inability to let Vincent go despite the knowledge of who he is and what he does.

At the end of Reckoning, things go down that will unequivocally alter both Vincent and Eve’s lives, but where that leaves them heading into book 3 is still unclear. There are a series of obstacles that at this seem insurmountable, but if readers have learned anything about Eve and Vincent throughout the first two books in the series it’s that they’ll fight for what they want and not allow anything or anyone to interfere, but what that means for their redemption is still too soon to tell.

The continuation ofVincent and Eve’s story illustrates exactly what these two are up against, and as Jessica Ruben provides readers with further insight into exactly who Vincent is and why he does what the does, we can’t help but understand the precarious position he’s in and while some will not condone his decisions or his actions, I can’t help but see everything from both Vincent and Eve’s perspectives, which means that once all truths are revealed and understood, I still hold out hope that they’ll both be redeemed.

REVIEW AND EXCERPT BLITZ: THE UPSIDE OF FALLING by Meghan Quinn

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.

Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.

My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.

I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.

And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination.

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.

One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful.

Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.

Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single incident, I fly off course.

My Review

Even though book one of Meghan Quinn’s Blue Line Duet is titled The Upside of Falling, at the start and even throughout Colby and Rory’s story, it’s clear that Colby doesn’t see an ‘upside’ for his attraction and desire for the girl who just won’t let him remain isolated or singularly focused on his goal of being a pilot.

But as their story progresses and readers begin to understand the reasons behind Colby and Rory’s respective drive and what allows them to continue to pursue a worthwhile life despite the trials they’ve had to endure, we can’t help but hope that Rory gets through to Colby and he finds a way to allow her into his heart, so they can begin to work towards something that will sustain them both regardless of the memories of their pasts and the obstacles of their current lives.

Because The Upside of Falling is told through both Colby and Rory’s perspectives, readers truly understand where each character is coming from and the reasons behind their words and actions, and while Quinn makes readers work a bit to unravel everything about the hero and heroine to a point where true enlightenment can occur, it’s definitely worth the effort, and even with how things end in book 1, readers can trust that Quinn will heal us all no matter how long it takes.

I love when writers venture away from the tropes that their readers know them for and craft stories that have spoken to them…have seeped into their heart and soul demanding they be told. Meghan Quinn definitely knows how to bring the humor and steam to her storylines, but in her new duet, she focuses on the heavier/darker sides of life…how people’s pasts affect their futures…how other people’s actions can both directly and indirectly shape the lives of those around them…how life can be unfair, heartbreaking, and crippling in ways that no-one could have imagined.

I’m anxiously awaiting The Downside of Love, and while I know I’ll be put through the ringer, I’m holding onto the fact that Quinn will take her characters and her readers back up after they endure all that must be endured.

4.5 Poison Apples

Excerpt

Head turned down, pushing the sleeves of his white Henley up his arms, he swaggers toward me. His jeans hang low on his hips, held up by the same brown belt he wore the other night. His narrow waist directs my eyes to the center of his jeans, and I can’t help wonder what might be behind the crotch of his pants.

And then there is his chest. Barrel like, broad and prominent. His thick biceps showcase his strength, and the fabric of his shirt stretches over his shoulders and forearms. Having spent a lot of time at the gym, I’ve seen every body type, but Colby’s is different. He’s strong, built, but not like a body builder. His body seems to suggest the only kind of weight he’s been lifting is his own body, pushup after pushup. I can’t imagine there being barbells in his workouts, but I can imagine logs, cadets, and heavy machinery. He has working muscles, the kind you earn from hard, dedicated work on the field. In a word? Impressive.

Walking up to Stryder, he grips his friend’s shoulder and says something into his ear. A smirk crosses Stryder’s face before he moves over to our side of the bowling alley and takes Colby’s place.

Is he leaving? Already?

Might as well at this point. It’s not like he’s going to talk to me, not after my pathetic attempt at a bet. I should have known I was going to hang out in the gutter all night. It’s where I usually am when I’m bowling. I blame the ball. The thing has a vendetta against me.

Sighing, I prop my chin in my hand and watch Stryder expertly toss his ball down the lane, getting a strike . . . once again. And just like every other strike, he pumps his arm up in the air and celebrates. We get it, you’re good, no need to—

“Hey.”

That voice . . .

Stunned, eyes wide, not able to move, not wanting to scare him away, I keep my eyes trained forward, soaking in that beautifully deep voice of his for a brief moment before saying, “Hey.”

“Can I sit here?”

Still keeping my eyes trained forward, I say, “Sure.”

My body tingles with awareness of how close he is to me, that fresh laundry scent invading my senses, prickling the little hairs on my arm. My body leans toward his, wanting a little more, searching for anything else he might give me. I don’t know why he’s choosing to engage me in conversation, but I’m sure as hell not moving while he does.

“Sorry about tonight,” he says and he actually sounds sincere.

“Why are you sorry?” I mumble.

Reaching around, he takes my cheek in his hand. The callouses on his palm rubbing against my skin is a welcome sensation. As I’m turned toward him, I steady my breathing. I’m having a hard time slowing my heart rate because of his close proximity, and the unexpected touch shooting a wave of heat through my veins.

“I’m sorry you didn’t get to ask me any questions. I didn’t think you were going to suck that bad.” A playful smile tugs at his lips, and my heart sinks to the floor. Oh God, he’s so gorgeous, especially when he smiles.

Matching his smirk, I say, “I didn’t think I was going to suck that bad either.”

“I feel bad.”

“You should.” That garners a laugh, deep and throaty, the sound cloaking me like a shield, protecting me from the outside world, bringing me into a little bubble where we are the only two that exist.

“Ask me a question.”

Shocked, I swallow hard and say, “Really?”

He nods and holds up his fingers. “You get three.”

“Oh, three? Wow, I feel like you just gave me the key to your soul.”

Rolling his eyes, he adjusts his stance on the barstool and leans back, giving us some space, our knees still knocking into each other. “Easy killer; it’s just three questions.”

“Yeah, three questions I didn’t have before.” Tapping my chin, I try to think of good questions, but now that I have him willing and waiting, nothing comes to mind. I wasn’t prepared for this, he caught me off-guard, and now I feel I can’t be strategic about my probing. “Hmm . . . what do you like to do on the weekends?”

“Jump,” he answers.

Searching his eyes, lips quirked, I say, “Uh, you’re going to have to be more specific than that. What kind of jumping are we talking here? Like jump roping? Because that seems kind of weird to do on the weekends, and if you tell me you’re in some kind of jump-roping club at the academy, I’m not going to believe you.”

His lips curve up as he scratches the side of his jaw. “Jump out of airplanes.”

Oh.

Oh.

That’s . . .

Uh, that’s really hot.

“So you just casually jump out of airplanes?”

“I’m part of the Wings of Blue, the academy’s parachute team. We jump every day, at least two to three times a day after class and before dinner, depending on wind and ceiling limits. On the weekends, some of the guys, including Stryder and me, go to Springs East Airport and do civilian jumps. The more jumps we get in, the higher the chance we’ll be considered for big demonstrations, like parachuting into football games and major sporting events for the Rockies and Broncos.” Ummmm. Did anyone else just hear how many words he gifted me? And seriously? Does the man have no clue how incredibly sexy he is when he talks about something he loves? The expression on his face . . .

“Wow, that’s . . . that’s really hot.” I chuckle. “Sorry, I don’t mean to fangirl over your parachuting, but I guess I wasn’t expecting that answer. You just jump out of planes?”

He slowly nods. “Every day.”

“Anything to get you up in the clouds, huh?”

“Yeah,” he answers shyly, rubbing his jaw. “Okay, next question.”

The Downside of Love

Release Date: July 5th

This isn’t a story about a love triangle. There is no triangle involved.

This isn’t a story about an accidental pregnancy. Although having a baby with her . . . I would.

This isn’t a story about lies and deception, even though at times I’ve lied to myself.

No, this is my story.

A story about sacrifice.

A story about a man who fell in love with the wrong girl.

A story I wish I never had to tell.

This is a story about the true meaning of the downside of love.

GOODREADS: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40193307-the-downside-of-love

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

RELEASE DAY BLAST: CRY BABY by Ginger Scott

We’re celebrating the release of CRY BABY by Ginger Scott! One-Click today!

Cry Baby by Ginger Scott
A Contemporary Young Adult Romance
Release day: June 22, 2018
Goodreads: http://bit.ly/2rjlag4

“Cry Baby is brilliantly written. It’s hauntingly beautiful and heartbreaking and will leave you thinking about it for days afterward. Bravo, Ms. Scott. This boy-man stole my heart and I don’t want it back.”

– L.J. Shen, Bestselling Author

Blurb

Tristan Lopez is loyal to his brothers. He doesn’t really have a choice, born into a gang that has a chokehold on every kid that roams its streets. He gave his life to them willingly, knowing if he did then one day this kingdom, led by boys drunk with power and ruled by fear, would all be his.

He was loyal through it all. Loyal when prison took his dad away. Loyal when his face was touched by the cold metal of the rival gang’s gun. Loyal even though his mom begged him to run the moment she returned home from rehab.

He thought about becoming someone else. It was hard not to crave the life of a regular 17-year-old. It’s the only reason he stayed in school—to pretend. But he always fell back in line.

Loyal.

Riley Rojas didn’t belong in Tristan’s real world. She should have only been part of the fantasy, one of the many faces he got to pretend with amidst rows of metal chairs and desks and whiteboards with assignments. But there she was, moving boxes from the back of an old pick-up into a house Tristan had shot up on a dare with his friends only a few months before.

Tall enough to look him in the eyes and strong enough to fill his shadow, Riley took up space on his streets, her loud mouth fearless in the face of the gang leaders who terrified everyone else. She pushed Tristan around on the hard court, and she balled better than his friends—better than him
sometimes. She challenged him. She needed him. He liked it. And when her pale blue eyes stared into his, he quit wanting to pretend.

He couldn’t ask her to leave because she’d only dig her heels in deeper. He couldn’t ask because he didn’t want her to go. She was blurring his lines. She was testing his loyalty.

He was falling in love.

And it was going to tear him apart.

BLOG TOUR REVIEW: ON THE EDGE by CD Reiss

ONTHE EDGE BT BANNER.jpg

“This series grips you by the throat and refuses to let go—and you’ll be begging for more the entire time.”

Sierra Simone, USA Today Bestselling Author

On the Edge, the next intense installment in The Edge Series from New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss, is available now!

On-the-edge-two-final

“In Iraq, I promised you a bed of rose petals.” He grabbed my hand under the table, tightening his grip as if he were falling from a precipice and our connection was the only thing saving him from certain death.

“They were beautiful.”

“You smell like apples. Roses were wrong.” There was nothing soft about his tone, but his quiet words were for me alone. “I want everything to be right for you.”

“Caden, look at me.”

I caught his gaze and held it. He was confident. Arrogant. Sure he had a place in the world. And under that was the man who needed me to be that place.

“If I could…” He smiled and shook his head at a silly thought he wanted to dismiss but couldn’t—a contradiction in keeping with the whole man I married. “If I could write my love in the sky, it wouldn’t be big enough. I’d run out of room. I’d fall out of the air trying to say it all.”

He was saying it all.

Every day.

And he was falling out of the sky to do it.

My Review

Even after finishing the last page of On The Edge, the continuation of Greyson and Caden’s story, the analytical nerd in me is still quite confounded with the dysfunctional and disturbing events that played out on the pages of the second book in The Edge series, and while I’m left feeling quite bereft due to the lack of answers provided, extending my already long list of questions, I can’t help but be in awe of the psychological warfare that CD Reiss has created for her characters and her readers to experience, and let me tell you, we all are lost in the mind-bending chaos that has become a part of Greyson and Caden’s lives.

What’s most interesting to me is the fact that amidst the twisted and toxic environment that the couple seems to live in, the sexual side of Greyson and Caden’s life is hotter and bolder than it’s ever been, allowing Greyson to unleash her sexual desires on an incredibly willing partner to the point that I can’t believe the heat doesn’t resonate from the pages of their story.

Sometimes I feel like a depraved lunatic because I’m obsessed with this couple, with understanding who they are and how they, especially Greyson, deal with the clusterfuck that has become their lives; I find myself meticulously analyzing the words that they say as well as the actions they take in order to understand any granules of truth that can be found, but I have NOTHING! Nothing that, I believe, leads me in the right direction because I seem to be going around in circles, acquiring little insight into how to find the path that Reiss is leading her characters as well as her readers. But because Reiss crafted Greyson and Caden’s story with multiple and complex layers as well as a psychological aspect that constantly manipulates the plot line as well as the mental state of its characters, which makes it almost impossible to understand the causes or the repercussions of Caden’s psyche and what and who Greyson must endure as she tries to stand by the man who needs her to be his safe place.

The title of book three seems to me extremely telling of where Reiss is taking her highly dysfunctional but incredibly intriguing couple…Broken Edge has several implications for Caden and Greyson and while I know I’m probably not prepared for just how fractured these two will be, I’d willingly endure it in order to unearth several of the questions that threaten to drive me batty until I know their answers.

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.

COVER REVEAL: MIXED UP LOVE by Natasha Madison

WE ARE SO THRILLED TO BRING YOU THE COVER FOR THE NEXT STANDALONE FROM NATASHA MADISON!

MIXED UP LOVE RELEASES ON AUGUST 7TH!

Huter

When my business partner asked me to do him a favor, I had no idea he was sending me on a blind date his mother arranged for him. I walked in the bar, saw the woman drinking her third martini, and knew I was in for an eventful night.

After the unexpected second date, she didn’t know my real name or who I really was. By that time, the lie was too far gone, and I wanted her too much to admit the truth.

Laney

It’s not every day you find out your ex-boyfriend is engaged.

I shouldn’t have agreed to the blind date. My mother insisted, and I wasn’t in any position to turn down a night out.

I will admit, I definitely shouldn’t have ordered that fourth martini before said blind date even arrived.

The man turned out to be swoon worthy, handsome, condescending—a perfect distraction. Then I found out he was a liar.

I’ve never been in over my head to this degree.

Then again, I’ve never been in love.
