BLOG TOUR: Not My Romeo by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Is Jack my real Romeo…or will this gorgeous football player only break my heart?

Not My Romeo, the all-new swoon-worthy contemporary sports romance with heart and heat from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills is available now!

Madden-Mills - Not My Romeo - 29324 -CV-FT-V

We start off with a lie on Valentine’s Day.

My blind date isn’t the studious guy I expected: he’s a drop-dead gorgeous player with sinful amber eyes. Somehow we end up at his penthouse. I blame the gin and tonic.

The next day I learn he’s Jack Hawke—bad-boy professional quarterback with a murky past. The NDA he has me sign should be a warning that he isn’t a regular person. Please. I sign it Juliet Capulet, so goodbye, famous football player with abs of steel, and good luck tracking down this small-town librarian.

But Jack keeps showing up in places I least expect him. Just when I’m sure he’s gone, he waltzes into my community theater and wins the part of Romeo to my Juliet. How’s a plain, mostly innocent girl like me supposed to resist a man like him?

Is Jack my real Romeo…or will this gorgeous football player only break my heart?

My Review

Jack Hawke is not Elena Riley’s Valentine’s Day blind date…

But it doesn’t stop them from making the most of a dating mixup and revel in the easy way they connect.

Jack Hawke is not someone who needs anymore distractions from his football career…

But that doesn’t mean he’s not willing to put himself out there for the right woman, despite his trust issues, a tainted past, and a reputation that makes him look more bad boy than he actually is.

Jack Hawke should not be Elena Riley’s Romeo…

But it doesn’t stop Jack’s Juliet from wondering if two people who are complete opposites can find a way to make things work.

Jack Hawke may not know exactly how to be Elena Riley’s one, but he’ll use whatever he needs to, to prove that he’s not just her Romeo, but her everything.

There’s a complexity to Jack’s personality that is illustrated throughout the duration of the book. It’s clear that he is so much more than the media portrays and what he allows people to see and believe. A person can only be burned so many times before his walls go up and he no longer trusts anyone. But it’s obvious that Elena brings out different parts of him – sides that many probably have never seen and he may not even remember he has.  And seeing this tiny and introverted southern belle bring this tough and dominant football alpha male to his knees proves that all it takes is the right person to someone truly live again.

Elena is definitely my kind of heroine. She may be an introverted librarian, but she is also so full of light and grace that it makes those around her want to be better people. Her quirkiness is endearing and the fact that she takes it upon herself to spread her wings and do things her way makes experiencing those things through her eyes all the better.

I am all about a new sports romance series from Ilsa Madden-Mills, and the fact that it takes place in a small Tennessee town called Daisy and has a cast

of primary and secondary characters who add such depth to the storyline makes book one, Not My Romeo, a must-read.

4.5 Poison Apples

Excerpt

I pull my white cat-eye glasses out of my purse and slide them on for a better look. My heart flip-flops as butterflies take flight in my stomach. Oh heck no. That can’t be him. He’s . . . he’s . . . freaking gorgeous, and I don’t mean regular handsome but like a movie star: dark hair swept off his face, the strands wavy and unruly with copper highlights, soft and silky brushing against his cheeks, and too long for a newscaster, in my opinion—but what do I know? I don’t own a television.

He lifts his arm to shove his hair back, and my eyes pop at the tightly roped muscles of his forearm and biceps straining through the fabric, the impossibly broad shoulders.

Well, would you look at that.

And this has to be him, right?

I’m in the right restaurant. He’s alone. He’s wearing a blue shirt. He has dark hair. Odds point to yes. Usually the most simple explanation is exactly what it appears. Therefore, he must be my date.

The man in question turns to look out the window, tapping his fingers on the table impatiently, and I take in his profile. Long straight nose, full dark arching eyebrows, and a sharp, bladed jawline. Sensuous lips, the lower one decadently full. Almost wicked. He’s the kind of hot that draws your eyes over and over just to make sure it’s not a mirage. I knew guys like him at NYU—sexy, athletic gym types who played a sport. And those types never gave me a second look. I’d watch them work out while I fumbled my way around one of those god-awful butterfly machines, while beautiful, tall, svelte girls who weren’t sweating fawned over them, bringing them towels, water bottles, and sexy promises.

He takes a sip of an amber liquid, long tanned fingers grasping the fragile container as his eyes rove across the room. They prowl around the restaurant, as if he’s assessing every person in sight, and I feel the sizzle of him even from twenty feet away. Prickles of awareness skate down my spine. I’m the alpha, his body language yells. Come and challenge me.

His gaze drifts right over me without stopping.

Not surprised.

I duck back into the shadows.

Dang it. My hands clench. I wanted nice and nerdy, not this . . . sexy beast!

And judging by the scowl on his face, he’s grumpy. Life’s too short to be dour, Mister. And what is he annoyed about? I am here!

And he did see a picture of me. Topher said so.

Yeah, maybe he doesn’t really want to meet you.

Maybe he’s hoping you won’t show up.

I tap my foot. I should leave. Really.

The smells of Milano’s waft around me, spicy and tantalizing, and my stomach lets out an angry howl. I move from one foot to the next. Every place to eat between here and Daisy is going to be packed. I could always hit a drive-through on the way back home—but how pathetic is a Big Mac and fries on Valentine’s Day? Plus, I’ll have my entire nosy family to answer to tomorrow. They’ve built up this blind date so much: Oooooh, Elena has a date with a weatherman. Ask him if that’s a barometer in his pocket or if he’s just glad to see you.

I give myself a mental pep talk.

Grow some balls, Elena.

Sometimes you have to go out and take what you want.

So what if he’s hot enough to suck the dew off a rose.

You are hungry. Do it for the pasta.

He is your date. Go get ’em, girl.

I gather my resolve, point my little black pumps in his direction, and start marching.

A Royal enemies to lovers story that will leave you breathless!

Taunting Callum by Kristen Proby is now live!

From New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Kristen Proby comes an all new stand-alone novel in her beloved Big Sky Series!

His Royal Highness Callum Wakefield lives a carefree, luxurious life. As the King of England’s youngest son, and thus not the heir apparent, he has more freedom and less royal responsibilities. He spends his days traveling the world, indulging in the extravagance afforded by his family name. But after years of hopping from one country to the next, the place that holds the most appeal is Cunningham Falls, Montana. And the only woman on his mind is a fiery redhead with an infectious laugh.

The one who hates him.

Aspen Calhoun is the new owner of Drips & Sips. It’s taken her many years to find a place to belong, and she’s perfectly happy living a quiet life. Or she would be, if a certain prince would stop coming to town.

Aspen and Callum shared one incredible night together two years ago before he returned to his opulent life, subsequently forgetting all about her. Ego bruised and pride wounded, Aspen doesn’t know why he’s back. And she doesn’t care. She refuses to fall for his charms again.

But Callum is determined to stay in Cunningham Falls and make it up to Aspen, no matter how long it takes. Because while she was out of sight, she was most certainly not out of mind.

RELEASE BLITZ: THE REALITY OF EVERYTHING by Rebecca Yarros

THE REALITY OF EVERYTHING (Flight & Glory #5) by Rebecca Yarros

Release Date: August 24th

Add to Goodreads:  https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/41556924

Blurb

Two years after the man she loved was killed in Afghanistan, Morgan Bartley is trying to put the pieces of her life back together. The reno on her dilapidated beach house in the Outer Banks might be just the distraction she needs to keep her debilitating anxiety attacks at bay and begin to heal her heart…if she can ignore the ridiculously handsome guy next door.

At twenty-eight, single-dad Jackson Montgomery’s life revolves around his five-year-old daughter and his job as a search-and-rescue pilot for the coast guard. He’s no stranger to saving a damsel in distress, and though his gorgeous new neighbor is clearly in distress, she’s no damsel. She’s stubborn as hell with walls a mile thick, and the dog tags hanging from her rearview mirror give him a pretty good clue as to why.

It doesn’t matter that their attraction is undeniable—she swore she’d never fall for another pilot, let alone a military man. There are some wounds time can’t heal, and some fears too consuming to conquer.

She’s a barely breathing heartbreak on the edge of recovery.
He’s a crash waiting to happen.
Together they could have it all…if they can endure the coming storm.

RELEASE BLITZ: DRIVE ME WILD by Melanie Harlow

DMW - RB banner.jpg

“This book is everything—heart, humor, and just the right amount of heat. A perfect distraction!”

Adriana Locke, USA Today Bestselling Author

Drive Me Wild, an all-new sexy, opposites-attract romance with all the feels by USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is available now!

DriveMeWild AMAZON (1)

When Blair Beaufort literally crashes into Bellamy Creek wearing a ball gown and a tiara, I should have towed her car, said goodnight, and sent her packing.

I’m a mechanic, not a hotel manager. I’ve got enough on my plate trying to keep my shop from going under, my overbearing mother off my back, and my baseball team in contention for the league championship. I don’t have time for a former debutante with zero street smarts and a cash flow problem, even if she is crazy beautiful.

Problem is, she’s stranded in my small town, and I’m hiding a protective streak underneath my grumpy exterior that runs deep. So I offer her a place to stay and keep my hands to myself.

For exactly one night.

If only she weren’t so gorgeous. So funny. So eager to please. She’s a disaster behind the wheel, but she drives me wild without even trying–at work, at home, in the back of my truck . . . I can’t get enough of the way she makes me feel.

But I know better than to think it can last. She wants a fairy tale, and I’m no prince.

So when it comes time for her to leave, there’s nothing I can do but let her go.

No matter how much it hurts to say goodbye.

My Review

Melanie Harlow’s newest romance couple – Blair Beaufort and Griffin Dempsey – meet in the unlikeliest of ways, but what’s most intriguing about these two together is that they couldn’t be more different, which Griffin catches on to quickly. But while his brain tells himself to not get involved, he doesn’t listen and that not so simple decision brings all kinds of craziness his way, in both positive and negative ways.

Griffin is more than a little rough around the edges, but there’s a reason for him living the way that he does and it’s those choices that have kept him at arm’s length from everyone in his life until a certain beauty turns his life and his town upside down.

What I love most about Blair is that she’s more than ready to take control of her life and not have it dictated to her. But while she yearns to go it alone and find her own way in the world, she doesn’t factor in making an unexpected stop in Bellamy Creek and finding a broody gorgeous man who she’s willing to put it all on the line for, even while she figures out who she is and what she wants in the process.

Drive Me Wild couldn’t be a truer phrase for Blair and Griffin’s relationship – something that he refused to even acknowledge until it was beyond clear that he was way in over his head in all of the best ways. Because even though he talked a good game and worked to keep things causal between them, it was more than obvious what she was beginning to mean to him and just how much he wants her brand of wild in his life always.

I adore small-town romances and Melanie Harlow constructs amazing ones and her newest creation – Bellamy Creek – is the perfect blend of quaint and cozy and its inhabitants are as endearing as they are nosy. But that’s what makes this Michigan village the perfect place to settle down while also experience all there is to fully live, learn, and love.

An all new and endearing friends-to-lovers story…

The One for Me by New York Times bestselling author Corinne Michaels is now live!

Devney Maxwell has been my best friend since we were six years old, but she has no idea I’m in love with her.


Even when I’m on the road playing professional baseball, she’s my home–the only one I’ve ever known. But when I return to Sugarloaf to care for the family farm, I discover she’s trying to talk herself into a life with the wrong man … and I become desperate.

It only takes a single, perfect kiss to change everything.

I have six months to get it right with Devney–to convince her to leave this town and turn that kiss into forever.

I aim to do just that as I spend my days coaching her nephew’s baseball team, fixing up the farm, and loving her with all I have. Finally, it seems like our relationship is secure and we’ll find a way to make it work.

Then tragedy strikes … changing her life forever. She’s needed here more than ever, but as for me–there’s no way I can stay.

I know she’s the one for me, but I might have to let her go …

My Review

Friends-to-lovers is one of my absolute favorite tropes because there’s an established connection between the hero and the heroine – one that has weathered a variety of changes and endured the good and bad times together. And it’s clear from the start of The One For Me that Sean Arrowhead and Devney Maxwell are destined to be more than friends; they just need to figure it out for themselves, before they lose something that could be so good for both of their lives – love and devotion.

Sean Arrowhead just might be my favorite brother and one of the main reasons is because he loves with his whole heart and those who matter to him understand just how he feels about them with every word he says and every action he takes. He truly is the complete package…the ultimate book boyfriend and the Arrowhead brother who will make readers swoon and envy the woman who holds his heart.

Throughout the story, Devney illustrates just how selfless she is…how strong and grounded she works to be, and even though it’s not completely clear why she decided to let her dreams of leaving Sugarloaf lay dormant, what is obvious is that she’s willing to do whatever it takes, sacrificing whatever needs to be sacrificed to allow those she loves to flourish.

Because Sean and Devney’s connection began when they were kids and continued to build as they grew up, they started with a solid foundation of friendship – one that was difficult to move on from, even if they both secretly wanted more from each other because they felt like there was too much to lose. But slowly, they started to get on the same page and despite a few bumps along the way, what they’re starting to feel for each other isn’t something they should let go of anytime soon.

Corinne Michaels writes emotional romance – stories that deal with the highs and lows and the ups and downs of life…books that teach lessons about love, sacrifice and commitment. And every time I pick up one of Michaels’ books, I know what I experience through her words and her characters is something worthwhile, something that will have my emotions in a state of flux, wondering how she plans to give her hero and heroine the happily ever after they deserve. And her Arrowhead Brothers series is must read romance and my favorite books in her entire collection of stories. I just can’t get enough of these Arrowhead men.

4.5 Poison Apples

Excerpt

“Don’t play that crap with me, Sean Arrowood. I know you better. You want the wife and kids. You always have. The issue that you have is that you’re stupid.”

“Stupid?”

She nods. “Yup. S-T-U-P-I-D. And dumb.”

“They mean the same thing.”

“It required the extra punctuation at the end.”

God, I love the side of her that is smart-mouthed, fearless, and relaxed. She’s only this way with me. Or at least, that’s what I’d like to think.

The last ten years have been hard on our friendship. We both went off to college, I had baseball and she was studying. We’d see each other on breaks, but after the accident that changed the trajectory of my life, I stayed in Maine, and we rarely saw each other.

However, when I had a series in New York, Devney came. If I was in Philly, she would find a way to meet me, and I flew her down to Tampa a few times.

Now, though, I’ll be around her so much more, and I know these feelings aren’t going to go away, they’ll get stronger.

Yeah, I guess I really am stupid.

“Well, I may be stupid, but at least I’m not settling.”

She sits up, slapping her hand on the couch cushion. “Settling?”

“Yeah. You may love Oliver, but he doesn’t make you crazy.” Devney shifts back. “You’re making me crazy right now.”

“Good.”

“You’re infuriating!”

I shrug. “You love me.”

“It helps that you’re hot.” Devney quickly covers her hand over her mouth. “I did not mean it that like that.”

I grin and lean toward her. “You think I’m hot?”

“I think you’re mediocre. God knows your harem of . . . whatever you call them . . . think you are.”

For so long I’ve fought against telling her anything about how I feel. How those women are faceless and mean nothing to me. It’s always her. Always a brunette who I seek out, hoping to find just a piece of something like her that I can cling to, but I never say it.

Then I wonder, maybe this is the perfect time. Oliver is going to propose. Oliver will marry her, and I won’t have a god damn thing to say about it because I will have never told her.

Plus, she’s drunk.

Maybe she won’t remember it.

“Maybe so, but I’m not asking them. Plus, all the girls I’m attracted to look like you.”

Devney laughs while shaking her head. “Well, it has to be tough kissing your best friend, right?”

And in that moment, I know what I’m going to do. It doesn’t matter that it’s stupid or wrong. I no longer care about her boyfriend or how this moment will undoubtedly change everything between us because she will marry him when he asks. Devney won’t falter. She’ll cling to the safe, and I am not that, but I love her.

I lean closer and her eyes study my movement. With a trembling hand, I cup her face and brush my thumb against her soft skin. Everything freezes around us as I feel the warmth emanating from her. Our breaths mingle as the distance closes. “I don’t know, but I’d like to see if it’s tough to kiss you.”

I wait, giving her one last chance to push me away, but instead, her tongue moves against her pink lips, which is all the invitation I need.

I lean in, my lips touch hers, and I know my life hasn’t just changed, it’s been completely upended.

PREORDER BLAST: THE REALITY OF EVERYTHING by Rebecca Yarros

THE REALITY OF EVERYTHING (Flight & Glory #5) by Rebecca Yarros

Release Date: August 24th

Add to Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/41556924

Blurb

Two years after the man she loved was killed in Afghanistan, Morgan Bartley is trying to put the pieces of her life back together. The reno on her dilapidated beach house in the Outer Banks might be just the distraction she needs to keep her debilitating anxiety attacks at bay and begin to heal her heart…if she can ignore the ridiculously handsome guy next door.

At twenty-eight, single-dad Jackson Montgomery’s life revolves around his five-year-old daughter and his job as a search-and-rescue pilot for the coast guard. He’s no stranger to saving a damsel in distress, and though his gorgeous new neighbor is clearly in distress, she’s no damsel. She’s stubborn as hell with walls a mile thick, and the dog tags hanging from her rearview mirror give him a pretty good clue as to why.

It doesn’t matter that their attraction is undeniable—she swore she’d never fall for another pilot, let alone a military man. There are some wounds time can’t heal, and some fears too consuming to conquer.

She’s a barely breathing heartbreak on the edge of recovery.
He’s a crash waiting to happen.
Together they could have it all…if they can endure the coming storm.

EXCERPT REVEAL: SICKO by Amo Jones

SICKO by Amo Jones

Release Date: September 1st

Add to Goodreads:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/50489991-sicko

Blurb

He was my foster brother.
He swore to protect me.
He failed.
They all failed.

I’m an open box of passé photographs, snapped in chaste daylight, but filtered in sepia. I’m the past that he tried to forget, and he was the future I needed. When he left six years ago, I screamed for him every night. But then it all stopped. My screams were suddenly muffled by cruelty, and further coaxed by pain.

But he has come back. He’s not the cute big brother I had a furtive crush on, or the bad boy, rich brat that I hated to love.

He’s the ruthless vice president of Wolf Pack MC, and he doesn’t answer to Royce Kane anymore.

He answers to Sicko.

Excerpt

I weep loudly from the pain. His other hand comes to the back of my neck as he presses me further into the blankets. “Cross your fingers together at the back of your head.”

Oh god. I do as I’m told, mainly because I don’t think I want to fuck with this side of him, but another part of me wants to see just how far I can push him. He flicks on the bedside lamp, but it’s dim. Too dim. Offering a soft sepia shade to room.

“You let go, and you feel this?” Cold metal slides down the crack of my ass and I tense.

About the Author

Amo Jones is a USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, totally winging this author thing (she’s probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic (Slytherin). She’s a profound work-a-holic, but when she’s not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & Husband at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.

New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.

Sixth Circle

Heresy

Also Known as Shane Carter

There are no rules with this man.

No courtesies.

No acceptable behaviors he’ll conform to in order to be accepted.

He marches to his own beat.

Gives the finger to expectations.

And does whatever pleases him because nobody can control him.

Arrogant.

Aggravating.

Absolute Chaos.

Shane is the last person you want walking into your world.

It’s too bad he walked into mine.

Now I can’t get rid of him.

Not that I’m sure I want to.

He wants something from me.

He’s playing a game.

And every time we come together, I can’t help feeling like I’m dancing with the Devil.

It all started with a chance meeting.

With the exchange of a few angry words.

And now that I’m trapped in this man’s maze, I fear I won’t be strong enough to resist being seduced.

*** Each novel in the series depicts a unique romance, but the plots through each book connect in one world. For the best experience, read the series in order.

Nine Ruthless Men. Nine Unrepentant Sinners. Nine Irresistible Manipulators.
