COVER REVEAL: My Life in Shambles by Karina Halle

Release Date: February 11th

Blurb

When Valerie Stephens made the resolution to say yes to new adventures, she never thought she’d end up in the tiny town of Shambles, fake engaged to one of Ireland’s top rugby players. But there’s a first time for everything.

They say bad things happen in threes.

After my boyfriend broke off our engagement, I lost my apartment, and was laid off from my job, I can definitely attest to that.

They also say life is what happens when you say yes to new adventures.

So when my two sisters invited me to ring in the new year in Ireland, I decided to throw all caution to the wind and go for it. I was going to let “saying yes” be my new resolution.

Little did I know I’d spend New Year’s Eve having a hot and dirty one-night stand with Padraig McCarthy, one hell of a sexy Irishman. I also didn’t know that the brooding and intense sex god was one of Ireland’s top rugby players.

A rugby player with a proposition for me:

Come with him to his tiny hometown of Shambles and pretend to be his fiancé for a few days, just so that his ailing father can have some peace of mind.

It sounded simple enough.

It was anything but.

Not when a town gets up in your business, not when the media hunts you down, not when your past comes back in the picture, not when there are real hearts and feelings at stake.

Not when there are secrets that could break you.

They say life is what happens when you say yes to new adventures.

This is my life in Shambles.

This is a full-length contemporary standalone romance.

RELEASE BLAST: ONE CHANCE, FANCY by Lani Lynn Vale

Benson Bayou Beauregard is the president of the Bear Bottom Guardians MC, and the grandson of the Sergeant at Arms for the Dixie Wardens MC. He’s a mountain of a man and the warden of a prison, and there’s only one thing that can scare him—being told that he’s the father of a three-year-old little girl.

A three-year-old little girl that has no clue who he is. Hell, he only finds out about the little cherub when a woman from child protective services comes by and rocks his world before leaving the girl in his shocked arms.

Every single thing he thinks he knows goes up in a cloud of smoke.

To make matters worse, the woman that he’s been trying to convince to give him a chance takes one look at the little girl and tells him that he’s just not in the right place to handle both of them.

But Bayou was never one to back down from a challenge.

He can handle a three-year-old girl that acts exactly like him, and he can more than take on the fiery red-head that sets flame to his blood while he’s at it.

My Review

Lila Monroe brings together the San Fransisco food truck community and the reality television craze in her latest story, You’ve Got Male, book 2 in her Chick Flick Club series. And in true Lila Monroe romantic comedy fashion, Zoey Rafferty and Cam Newsome know exactly how to get underneath each other’s skin as business adversaries but also how to heat one another up with flirtatious exchanges, sultry looks, and even some too close for comfort encounters that make readers question whether Zoey and Cam can keep their professional and personal lives separate when the rivalry gets even hotter and their exchanges lead to some interesting discoveries.

Zoey and Cam’s antics prove just how competitive the food truck industry is and illustrate why neither of them can play things safe…can allow another food truck to outdo them…can be afraid to do whatever it takes to get ahead and for all of these reasons, these two will either wind up going for broke alone or perhaps work together in order to remain doing what they love and being successful doing it.

Boy do Zoey and Cam push each other’s buttons, and while Cam seems to be more educated on the finer points of sabotage and nefarious acts, Zoey’s passion for cooking and her desire to succeed makes her a quick study, and soon, she’s giving as good as she gets but she’s also realizing that her growing feelings for Cam aren’t just ones of detestation or annoyance.

The idea that all is fair in love and war is fitting for what Zoey and Cam do to each other in You’ve Got Male, and it’s clear that this enemies-to-lovers’ storyline utilizes the main characters’ banter, chemistry, and passion for food to make a connection that’s a lot deeper than either of them knows, which means that as their relationship changes and grows, decisions need to be made before they’re both out of a job and a potential love interest.

I can’t help but smile and reminisce about some of my favorite romantic comedies when I enter Lila Monroe’s Chick Flick Club series; the way she puts her own spin on well-known movies and brings the swoon, the laughter, and the steam that these films are known for into her comedically crafted world allows readers to lose themselves in Monroe’s stories just like they do in the movies.

COVER REVEAL: SNITCHES GET STITCHES by Lani Lynn Vale

 

Good vs Bad.

Light vs Dark.

Right vs Wrong.

There are always two sides to every coin.

Josiah ‘Liner’ Paldecki knew the moment he laid eyes on her that there was something different about her. Something special. Something so unique that it practically poleaxed him the moment that their eyes met.

Except, the next time he saw her, it was like she was a different woman altogether. There was a blankness to her eyes that concerned him. An air of menace about her that honestly scared him to death. He’s more than man enough to admit it.
At first, Liner thinks it’s because she’s bi-polar, or possibly psychopathic.

Then he realizes the truth.

That there isn’t a single person that exhibits such different personalities, but two.

Two identical twin sisters, both completely different, yet exactly the same.

One with a soul, and one without.

One that has his heart, and one that only wants to destroy it.

Title: Ruthless King
Series: Kings of Rittenhouse #3
Author: Maya Hughes
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: January 10, 2019
Blurb
My dick never got me in half as much trouble as my heart…

We were high school sweethearts. I was head over heels for her and no one could tell me we weren’t going to last forever. College? Going pro? My family’s money? None of it mattered. She was all I needed.Then she ripped my heart out. But I’m not going to let that happen again.

She’s back. Invading my life and acting like she was the wronged one. The pain is still there, but I can’t keep my eyes off her. I can’t stop thinking about her and how much was left unsaid between us. Being this close is making me question everything I thought I knew about her.

This time everything will be on my terms. Everything…

My Review

I’ll never get enough of second chance romance stories; there’s just something about a shared history and a foundation of feelings that make me root for the couple to find their way back to each other, fixing what was broken and working through the bitterness and heartbreak that they may still be carrying all the time they were apart. I also think I handle the angst of the book better when it’s made clear that the hero and heroine meant something significant to each other at one time and now have to how to let go of the baggage of the past and move forward to everything their future can be.

In true Kings of Rittenhouse’s fashion, Emmett, the hero of Ruthless King, is a cocky bastard whose demeanor is due to a past of painful experiences, and for that very reason, at the beginning of his and Avery’s story, it’s clear that he has one objective when it comes to the girl who broke his heart – payback – which makes Avery enemy number one and makes for quite a few awkward interactions since they’re friends with the same people and have to be around one another even when they’d rather not.

There’s so much pain and heartache that Emmett and Avery must work through if they stand a chance at making things work this time around and because most of their issues center around misunderstandings and miscommunications, nothing will straighten things out except the truth, regardless of how harsh or hurtful it is.

I do have to confess that Emmett and Avery frustrated the heck out of me at times because they acted and reacted instead of taking the time to think things through, but once they took a breath and let one another truly be heard, the healing process could begin and the bond that was created four years ago can resurface, offering them an opportunity to make things right and be together in a way that will last.

But boy does Maya Hughes make her characters and her readers work for every step in Emmett and Avery’s second chance, and while it put my head and my heart through the ringer to experience the push and pull as well as the ups and downs of their journey, it also solidified that they belonged together and needed to do everything in their power to become what they were always meant to be.

Author Bio

Maya Hughes has always loved romance novels. One look at her Kindle is confirmation. She started writing her first romance novel while pregnant with her third child and she hasn’t looked back. Now, her romance writing addiction has replaced her romance reading addiction.

You can find her writing on her foldable keyboard and phone anytime inspiration strikes. Her sweet and steamy stories range from rockstars to small towns and everything in between. When she’s not writing, she’s playing with her three kids, running errands or vegging on the couch with the love of her life and biggest fan, her husband.
