REVIEW AND EXCERPT BLITZ: ANOTHER ONE by Aleatha Romig

Get ready to laugh out loud, swoon, and fall in love with this new, fun, and sexy stand-alone novel from New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig. Demonstrating her versatility in writing, Aleatha revisits her lighter side that you loved in PLUS ONE.

A complete stand-alone, ANOTHER ONE is the next big summer hit.

*Shana*

Trevor Willis is sexy, sweet, and oh so fun. He’s also my best friend’s brother-in-law. That should mean he’s off-limits, or that I should be off-limits to him.

Someone probably should have told us that before my best friend married his brother, before the morning of the wedding when we woke in each other’s arms with gaping holes in my memory.

They didn’t.

We did.

The hilarious truth behind our crazy, secret adventure secured this handsome, off-limits man in my heart. But alas, life goes on. After our one secret night, we went back to our lives—our hardworking, solitary lives.

And then it happened.

My phone began to buzz. Each night with thousands of miles between us, we laughed, talked, and shared. And then, the phone stopped ringing.

Before it did, I knew one thing…

Our secret one had bloomed and blossomed, and now that our circumstances have changed I want another one!

*Trevor*

Shana Price is that one woman. You know, the one who suddenly makes the world more than a place to work, but also a place to live. Usually shy and awkward, in her presence I want to be more—I am more. I don’t even have to try.

She’s my one. I knew it the moment I first met her. What followed simply confirmed it.

The problem is the little hassle of the thousands of miles between us.

I tried to make it work, but each phone call made it harder. (Yes, that is a pun) I couldn’t take it any more—and she became the one who got away.

Now, everything has changed.

Shana is back in the United States—all I have to do is make her see that her job isn’t the only reason to stay.

That shouldn’t be a problem, right?

From a secret one to another one!

Try Aleatha’s lighter side for a guaranteed smile—the perfect getaway.

My Review

Love is transforming and transcending, which means that regardless of distance, regardless of obstacles, and regardless of time apart, that if two people long for another chance…another day…another one of everything that they’ve experienced together, it will happen and it will alter than lives in all of the best ways.

For Shana Price and Trevor Willis, one secret night together solidified a bond that refused to weaken despite the many miles between them, so when the opportunity presented itself for Shana and Trevor to have a second chance at what they knew was a connection worth the risks…worth the life altering decisions that would need to be made in order to give them both what they want – another day…week…month…year to be together, making their first night together, just one of many to come for the rest of their lives.

I’m quite the sappy romance reader because I adore second chance romance stories. There’s just something about a lost love getting another opportunity, and even though Shana and Trevor only spent one night together and then attempted to stay in touch, with little success, it was only a matter of time until a fated reunion gave them what they’ve both wanted since they said goodbye after an evening spent getting to know each other’s bodies – another one or hundreds of ones together.

Another One is a sweet and light-hearted romance – one that illustrates the power of attraction and the power of someone finding his/her ‘one,’ and what that means despite everything that stands in their way.

I love Aleatha Romig’s lighter side and the fact that she is so diversified in her writing ability speaks to a writer who understands the craft and all of its possibilities. Now if I can only get up the courage to read her darker side!

4 Poison Apples

Excerpt

Trevor~

Sweet and tangy.

Shana Price tastes like sugar with a twist of lemon.

My mind tells me to go slow, reminding me that I don’t have any right to this beautiful woman. My mind is saying to stop, yet her soft moan is all I hear.

My body has its own GPS with the destination close. Listening to my mind is out of the question.

Her petite body shivers as I tease her sweet lips. They willingly part as my tongue delves inside, wrestling with hers.

Not giving up its fight, my thoughts remind me how forward this behavior is and how it isn’t like me. Trevor Willis is not a man who chases a woman down, pins her against the wall, and kisses her until neither of us can breathe or cares.

It’s not me.

But, it should be.

I like it.

I won’t blame the alcohol. I’ll blame my need to know it’s really Shana and to claim her for my own. I didn’t do it last time, and I’ve regretted it every day since.

When her hands come to my chest, I seize them, lifting them above her head and pinning them to the wall. Shana doesn’t fight; instead, her hips move against mine and our kiss grows more passionate. In the dark, crowded hallway, with my body pressed against hers, I swallow the soft moans coming from her throat.

At that moment, I want to be anywhere but a crowded bar in the middle of Manhattan. I no longer care about Eric’s bachelor party or my friends. I don’t even care about Kimbra back out in the bar. All I want is to whisk Shana away and do what we didn’t do before, what her body and mine are ready and aching to do.

BLOG TOUR REVIEW AND EXCERPT: BANE by L.J. Shen

Bane-Cover-Facebook

Bane, the highly-anticipated next standalone in the Sinners of Saint Series by L.J. Shen is LIVE

Bane

Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.

Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.

Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.

Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.

Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

Jesse Carter

Hot as hell, cold as ice.

I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.

She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time.

She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.

More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.

Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.

My Review

Roman Protsenko doesn’t really roll off the tongue nor does it illustrate the man who owns this name; in fact, in a way, the only thing the name has going for it is the fact that it sounds foreign and unique, something that very much encapsulates who this baddest of the bad boys seems to be.

L.J. Shen’s newest Sinner’s nickname ‘Bane’ aptly depicts the personality of this ego manic jack hole, not only because he epitomizes the definition of bane – a cause of great distress or annoyance, something, especially poison, which causes death, but also because he seems to be the bane of everyone else’s existence, wreaking havoc and igniting mayhem everywhere he goes.

But as much as Bane’s persona capitalizes on the fact that he doesn’t give two shits about anyone or anything, proving himself to be an asshole to his core, beneath his emotionless layers, beneath his backbone that was built from his ability to not care who he hurts or what he has to do to get ahead lies an imperfectly perfect man whose flaws, fractures, and felonious acts don’t truly define all that Bane is.

Once again, L.J. Shen has created the perfect heroine for her anti-hero. Jesse Carter is probably the only woman who could get Bane to give a shit about something other than surfing, stealing, or lying. That doesn’t mean that things are easy for Bane and Jesse; in fact, due to the reasons behind their ‘connection,’ as well as the hellacious circumstances she had to endure and the issues that still consume her due to her past, I wasn’t quite sure how anything would work out for them, but I do have to say that out of all of the couples who Shen has introduced readers to in her Sinners of Saint series, this is the one that I cheered for from the very beginning, and while I’m not exactly sure why this relationship resonated with me more than any of the other ones, but I knew beyond reason that even though Bane and Jesse would have to deal with quite a shitstorm of things and work their way through them, I never doubted what they would become, quite frankly because of everything they had already survived, especially Jesse.

One aspect of L.J. Shen’s writing that truly highlights how gifted she is at characterizing her heroes and heroines is her ability to construct complex and layered characters who are so much more than the façade they seem to wear. For the most part, Shen’s male leads are more anti-hero than hero, but as their story develops, other facets of their character is explored and with that exploration, readers truly begin to understand how they became the jackholes that they did while still holding on to qualities that have lain dormant due to a variety of reasons and are only being brought to the forefront because of a certain female lead who challenges who the heroes are and who they actually could be.

I have to admit that it took me a bit to get into Bane and Jesse’s story; it moved a little too slowly at the beginning, but I knew that if I held on, absorbing everything that Shen wanted her readers to understand before the angst and assholeness reigned, that I would find myself in one hell of a love/hate relationship with Bane and completely and utterly enthralled with Jesse Carter – her sass, her strength, and the fact that despite a shit past she was able to survive.

L.J. Shen’s Sinners are quite the group of enigmatic and charismatic characters, and what I find most remarkable about them is the fact that these hotholes wear that label with pride while still each being unique in the alpha male qualities they possess. I don’t know if I’ll ever meet a group of book boyfriends who aggravate the hell out of me as much as their filthy mouths enamor me.

Excerpt

Bane

Then.

A liar.

A con.

A godless thief.

My reputation was a big wave that I rode, one that swallowed everyone around me, drowning every attempt to fuck with what’s mine.

I’d been known as a stoner, but power was my real drug of choice. Money meant nothing. It was tangible, and therefore easy to lose. See, to me, people were a game. One I’d always known how to win.

Move the rooks around.

Change the queen when necessary.

Guard the king at all fucking times.

I was never distracted, never deterred, and never jealous.

So, imagine my surprise when I found myself being all three at once.

It was a siren with coal black hair who robbed me of riding the biggest wave I’d seen that summer. Of my precious attention. Of my goddamn breath.

She glided from the ocean to the beach like nightfall.

I crouched down, straddling my surfboard, gawking.

Edie and Beck stopped beside me, floating on their boards in my periphery.

“This one’s taken by Emery Wallace,” Edie had warned. Thief.

“This one’s the hottest masterpiece in town.” Beck had chuckled. Con.

“More importantly, she only dates rich bastards.” Liar.

I had all the ingredients to pull her in.

Her body was a patch of fresh snow. White, fair, like the sun shone through her, never quite soaking in. Her skin defied nature, her ass defied my sanity, but it was the words on her back that made my logic rebel.

It wasn’t her curves or the way she swayed her hips like a dangling, poisonous apple that warranted my reaction to her.

It was that tattoo I had noticed when she swam close to me earlier, the words trickling down the nape of her neck and back in a straight arrow.

My Whole Life Has Been Pledged to This Meeting with You

Pushkin.

I only knew one person who went gaga over the Russian poet, and, like the famous Alexander, he was currently six feet under.

My friends began to paddle back to shore. I couldn’t move. It felt like my balls were ten tons heavy. I didn’t believe in love at first sight. Lust, maybe, but even that wasn’t the word I was looking for. No. This girl fucking intrigued me.

“What’s her name?” I snatched Beck’s ankle, yanking him back to me. Edie stopped pedaling and looked back, her gaze ping-ponging between us.

“Doesn’t matter, bro.”

“What’s. Her. Name?” I repeated through a locked jaw.

“Dude, she’s, like, way young.”

“I will not repeat myself a third time.”

Beck’s throat bobbed with a swallow. He knew damn well that I didn’t mess around. If she was legal—it was on.

“Jesse Carter.”

Jesse Carter was going to be mine before she even knew me.

Before I even knew her.

Before her life turned upside down and her fate rewrote itself with her blood.

So here was the truth that even my lying ass wouldn’t admit later on in our story—I wanted her before.

Before she became business.

Before the truth caged her in.

Before the secrets gushed out.

I never did get to surf that day.

My surfboard broke.

Should have known it was an omen.

My heart was going to be next in line.

And for a small chick, she did one hell of a fucking job obliterating it.

COVER REVEAL: If by Randi Cooley Wilson

Title: If

Author: Randi Cooley Wilson

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: Summer, 2018

Cover Designer: Hang Le by Hang Le

If you knew love would hurt you, would you fall?

If you knew love would leave you, would you let it go?

If you knew love could never be, would you try?

From bestselling author Randi Cooley Wilson comes a gut-wrenching love story about heartbreak, second chances, and letting go. The ifs that linger between the pages of this novel will break your heart and stay with you long after the final chapter.

Emerson Shaw thought she’d left her old life behind her, but when she returns home for her best friend’s wedding, she has no idea her past is waiting to reclaim her.

Dark and broken, Lincoln Daniels never wanted to find love. But when he met straight-laced Emerson, he fell. Hard. The only thing they seemed to have in common was an undeniable mutual attraction, but from the moment he laid eyes on her, there was something about her that called to him. Until he lost her.

Tormented by demons and consumed by dark desires, it took years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of their what ifs. Just when Emerson is finally ready to let go and stop existing in a past full of pain and regret, Lincoln returns, turning her life upside down. What begins as a tentative friendship quickly escalates, and the two soon realize that all the ifs lingering between them no longer matter.

If is a love story about two damaged people whose future depends on promises made in the past. What happens when two broken people meet, fall in love, and realize they can never be? What happens when all the what ifs no longer make sense? If you knew your heart would break, would you still fall? This book is intended for mature audiences.

RELEASE BLITZ AND REVIEW: THE WILD HEIR by Karina Halle

TheWildHeir-SBPRBANNER-RB.jpeg

The Wild Heir by Karina Halle
Publication Date: May 17th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

The Wild Heir AMAZON (1)

At first glance I probably seem like any good-looking guy in their late twenties. I have an obscene amount of confidence, a tattooed body sculpted by the Nordic gods, and I love the ladies as much as they love me.

If I’m not BASE jumping or car racing, I’m chasing other devious thrills with the woman of the week. And that’s fine if you’re the average single guy.
But I’m not the average single guy.

I’m Crown Prince Magnus of Norway and my latest scandal just landed my entire royal family in hot water.

Now the only way the monarchy can save face is for me to smarten up – publicly. If I don’t, I’ll no longer be heir apparent to the throne. So it’s either I abdicate my future role as King or…
I get married.
To a blue-blooded stranger.

Enter Princess Isabella of the tiny country of Liechtenstein.

Quiet, intelligent, and uniquely beautiful, Ella doesn’t like this arrangement any more than I do and she’s not afraid to show it. She says I’m a womanizer, that I don’t take anything seriously, that my ego should be taken down a few pegs, and I think she aims to make me miserable for the rest of my life.

But even as our arranged marriage becomes a war of wit and words, I’m determined to break through Ella’s prim and proper façade to find the wild, sexual and risk-taking woman underneath. I want to uncover the Queen inside her.

The only question is – will she let me?

The Wild Heir is a standalone full-length royal romance.

WILD HEIR_TEASER 2.jpg

My Review

I knew after meeting Magnus in The Swedish Prince that his story was going to push the limits, not just because the reckless Prince of Norway was all about living fast and living free but because it was also clear that he pushed every aspect of his life to the extreme; regardless of the action or the emotion, Magnus was balls to the wall, and if the outcome did not go in his favor, he dealt with the repercussions but ultimately continued to live his life according to his own dictates, never truly considering what would happen if public opinion of his antics became a blight on his family’s name and kingdom.

Given the choice, I doubt very much that Magnus would choose to be part of an arranged marriage, but unfortunately, he’s over-ruled, forcing him to choose between abdicating the throne or marrying a complete stranger – a woman who clearly knows about Magnus’ ‘extra-curricular activities and isn’t too fond of the charming and cheeky Norwegian.

But even though the man beneath the crown is one who thrives on spontaneity…one who is all about taking risks and rebelling against the norm, he’s captivated by the intelligent and passionate Princess of Liechtenstein, and while he has his work cut out for him when it comes to truly understanding who Princess Isabella is, due to their marriage of convenience, he now has the chance to build a solid foundation with the woman who is so much more than the prim and proper princess she seems to be.

Princess Isabella is a quiet force; she’s the perfect woman for Magnus because she allows him to be his wild and rebellious self while also providing him a way to center some of his reckless behavior. But that doesn’t mean things will be easy for Magnus and Ella because there is an insane amount of pressure to handle as well as a set of obstacles that definitely make sense given the situation that they’re in but still force them to make decisions that could not only change the dynamics of their relationship but also their royal positions.

Magnus and Ella’s relationship is a slow burn; they start out as two strangers meant to be married and then become two friends whose banter and antics bring them closer and finally, they become lovers who must deal with their respective pasts while also working towards something that will last despite Magnus’ recklessness and Ella’s insecurities. 

Readers will be charmed by Magnus’ cheeky wit and Ella’s passionate words. And because The Wild Heir is told through both of their point of views, we are able to understand what’s at stake for both Magnus and Ella, not only in terms of what their arranged marriage could become but also in terms of what they’re both willing to risk in order to pursue the growing feelings between them.

COVER REVEAL AND GIVEAWAY: The Right Stud by Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise

Title: The Right Stud
Authors: Ilsa Madden-Mills & Tia Louise
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: Shanoff Formats
Photo: Wander Aguiar
Release Date: June 4, 2018
Blurb

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise are back with an all-new romantic comedy filled with Southern sass and steamy scenes that will have you laughing out loud and fanning yourself. Pour the sweet tea and get ready…

“The best way to get over your sh**ty ex-fiancé is to get under a shiny new stud…”

As soon as Mr. Tall, Blond, and Handsome walks into that bar, I know he’s the hook-up I need to get over stupid Cheater Kyle.

A few stolen kisses in a dark hallway, and I’m pretty sure we’re headed for a home run—until he disappears without a trace.

Whatever. Men are all snakes in the grass, and I don’t need a new one anyway.

I resolve to forget about his perfect lips (and chest of steel) and instead focus on turning my Granny’s old beach house into a profitable B&B.

What I don’t expect is for him to show up the next day in my kitchen!

You see, my sexy mystery man is none other than Jax Roland, the drop-dead gorgeous home improvement star of The Right Stud, and he’s got an offer I can’t refuse.

With a suitcase in one hand and a hammer in the other, he wants to move in and renovate my old house while he films his new show.

But my roommate has secrets, and they threaten to rip our blossoming friendship—and possible love—apart.

When push comes to shove, is Jax really The Right Stud or is he just another nail in the coffin of love?

About the Authors

Great friends, former English teachers, and southern gals in real life, they’ve teamed up to bring you laugh-out-loud naughty romances with strong leading ladies and sexy alpha males who know how to please their women—and who sometimes you just want to slap.

Excerpt

In the dark, during the fundraising video, she leaned into me, taking my hand. “What’s going on?”

“Nothing.”

“Caden.” My name was more than a statement. It was a comment on how well she knew the animal, and how well she loved it.

If eyes could listen, hers did, gazing at me in the darkness. I couldn’t lie to her for much longer.

The entire invite list was watching the video. The bar was empty. The hallway lights were dimmed. The kitchen staff moved constantly and quietly to set up the buffet.

I laced my fingers in hers. She had a gold band we’d gotten out of expediency. No big sparkling rock. No sign I’d ever courted her properly before marrying her.

My father always said a man didn’t skip steps if he wanted to do something once.

I slid my cheek to hers and whispered in her ear, “I want to destroy you.”

Her hand tightened in mine so tightly I could feel our bones. Her glands must have fired, because the apples and the perfume melded and became something so uniquely her my balls ached—but not for simple release. For something more. An agreement of ownership.

Waiting wasn’t an option.

Pulling her by the hand, I headed for the hallway.

“Caden,” she said when we were away from the event, “slow down.”

I didn’t. I couldn’t. I pulled her down the carpeted steps to the lower level, stepping over a velvet rope at the bottom. The lights were out in the hall. Three doors led to three empty event rooms.

“What’s with you lately?” she asked.

“Are you saying no?”

“I’m asking a question.”

I backed into one of the rooms and pulled her in. It was dark but for light coming from under the doorways on each side. I walked in deeper, eyes adjusting quickly enough to avoid the tables and stacks of chairs on wheeled dollies.

“So am I.” I faced her. “Are you saying no?”

“What are you hoping I’ll say yes to?”

“I’m going to pull that dress up until I can get to these hard nipples.” I pinched them through the dress and she gasped. “Then I’ll bend you over one of these tables and fuck you so hard walking’s going to hurt. Are you saying no?”

“I’m not. But I want to know what’s going on with you.”

“Pull your dress up before I shred it.”

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.
