Release+Review-Beyond the Bases-Kaylee Ryan

Title: Beyond the Bases
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: July 31, 2018


What happens when you want more in life than just running the bases? 
You hang out at home plate and stop playing the field.

He's sexy and irresistible. I've done my best to ignore the magnetism that flows between us. I don't need complications in my life. I can't get wrapped up in his world, the last thing I need is to get attached to a professional athlete. I don’t have time for heartbreak.

Something about her pulls me in. I want to get to know her. I want a chance to show her I'm more than just my career, my paycheck. I'm the man for her. I know I am. No matter how much she resists this connection between us. It doesn't change the fact that she’s my grand slam.

“Life and baseball, 4 stars”

I love Ryan’s stories, but Beyond the Bases started out a little slow for me, then BAM! It all clicked for me. Once it clicked I was sucked in and fell in love with these characters. When the book started I didn’t know for sure where it was going and then everything fell into place and I loved it.
Easton is a pro baseball player who is not a player. Thanks to his dad he knew what the life was about before he ever signed a contract. So, when he takes interest in Larissa he’s kind of surprised that she wants nothing to do with him. What does any logical man do in this instance? He works for it, he sets out to prove he is worth the risk.
Larissa has been jaded by life in some truly craptastic ways. So, when a professional ballplayer sets his sights on her all she sees is heart break, and that’s not going to happen. She can’t let it happen, so she pushes him away. But what happens when Easton isn’t like every other guy and stays? Will she let him in or will her jaded past hold her back?
These two belonged together! I love the way they worked and balanced each other out. The way Ryan worked the story to slowly build and come together was great. I didn’t want the story to end. If you love sports romances with a serious hero who sets his sights on someone and doesn’t waiver then Beyond the Bases is a story for you.
Writing style-4/5

Release+Reviews-Bewitching Sloth-Michelle Gross

Title: Bewitching Sloth
Series: Seven Deadly Series #1
Author: Michelle Gross
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2018

Reapers are the peacekeepers—the balancers of life and death, good and evil. They’re the police of the Underworld in a way. They keep both worlds balanced just enough so that the King of the Underworld can never escape his prison.
For the day his reign stretches into the human world, all things good will come to an end.
This is the story of a dark king who cursed seven siblings with sins, and how far those seven went to protect both worlds from the end of days when an old entity challenged the Dark One’s very reign.

Isabella Wen has spent the last decade in the human world hiding from the one that turned her touch deadly, made her body a weapon for his own gain.
Sebastian Reaper—bearer of the sin of sloth and the eldest son of the revered Grim Reaper—has spent his entire life fighting to stay awake because of his curse.
When the witch finds the sleepy sloth passed out in the human hospital, they touch and sparks fly. Her touch should have hurt him. Instead, it’s the one thing he’s after.
She thinks her darkness is her undoing. He thinks she’s his cure.
When her past and her future collide, he must choose between duty and heart.
The world or her?

Each book in the series is about a different sibling and their sin, so the romance has an ending in each book. As for the storyline, it’s just getting started

Our Reviews:

You NEED to dive into this amazing and wonderful world! Bewitching Sloth is an amazing new novel that dives into a whole new world. It is a paranormal romance that is a stand-alone, but the main plot will span over the series. This book follows one set of characters while the rest will follow a different set of characters in each book. This book has action, romance, mystery, and a whole lot of Say What??
I knew as soon as I read the blurb of this book that I wanted to read it. I love paranormal romances, but I also love interesting story lines that I have never read before. This book gave me both. What would you do if you were cursed with one of the seven deadly sins? One that causes you to pass out at random times and makes you lose periods of time. This story explores Sebastian, who is cursed with the deadly sin of sloth. When he meets a witch that seems to change everything, will he take a chance on her or turn his back when she needs him most?
Sebastian is an amazing character. Man I am in love with him. He is the son of the Grimm Reaper and a reaper himself. I love his heart the most. While he seems cocky on the outside, inside he has a softness to him. Then you have Izzie. She is a very skittish person. She is on the run from her past when she runs right into the reaper. I love how strong she is. While she has a battle to wage, she stays strong and does her best to stay on the right path.
The heat in this book is scorching. These two characters have immediate chemistry from the very first touch. It is like the touch they share is a balm to the burn that has been torturing them both for their entire lives. If you like down and dirty heat, then this section of the book is perfect for you. These characters are amazing.
The writing style of the book is good. I loved the pace of the book. It was steady but sped up when it needed to. Time passed differently in the book, which makes since. A lot of the book is set in the Underworld so time would pass different than we assume as mere humans. I loved how the story was developed. The author was able to create a whole world for us to explore. She did great at setting this foundation for the series.
Overall, I am so in love with this series right now. It was unique and refreshing. The world building is just amazing in this story. Like I cannot wait to read more because I want more of these characters and more of the world. I would recommend this book to others, especially people who love paranormal romance.

“Seven Deadly Sins, 5 stars”

Once upon a time there were six siblings who were cursed with the seven deadly sins. Each sin different from the next. This is the story of Sebastian and his sin of the Sloth. I loved the idea of this story and was intrigued by where Gross would take it. Bewitching Sloth is action packed yet leaves plenty of questions for the stories to come. Gross is a new to me author and I’m glad I took a chance on reading Bewitching Sloth.
Sebastian works as a Reaper and loves his job. He sees both the bad and the good of the human world. When he stumbles upon Izzie he has no idea who or what she is aside from the fact she’s a witch. He was cursed as a Sloth and will fall into a deep sleep at inopportune times for an unknown amount of time, but with one touch from Izzie and he’s awake. What does this mean?
Isabel (Izzie) is on the run. As a child she was given to a bad man and she barely escaped his clutches the first time. Now she has Sebastian who wants to spend time with her and she’s leery. Especially when stuff around them keeps happening. She makes Sebastian feel alive and he makes her feel safe. What does this mean? What is happening?
These two balance each other out, but at he same time she has the power to bring his family down. I loved how his family kind of embraced her with open arms but wouldn’t get close. Bewitching Sloth took place over what felt like a short amount of time, so I am interested to see if the other books are the same way.
Writing style-5/5

Author Bio:
Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where opossums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.
As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading, and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.
The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write.
The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.

Release-Playboy-Katy Evans

Playboy by Katy Evans
Publication Date: July 29, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance


A brand new contemporary romance from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

It started as a game.

We flirted. We played. Most importantly—we won.

Then I discovered who he was: Gambler. Famous playboy. Silver-eyed player who never plays to lose...

And my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael.

He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction.

So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep.

My heart, soul, and body weren't supposed to be part of the deal.

But somewhere between big wins and long nights, my house of cards started to tumble.

What was this devil with those piercing eyes doing to me?

I’d given up on love, but the wicked, all-in Cullen Carmichael was upping the ante and wouldn’t stop until he’d won it all.

“So you just kissed me because you wanted to.” I speak on a breath.

“Very good. You’re perceptive. Intuitive.”
I realize he’s teasing me in that low, terribly rumbly voice and I wish he would smile at me.
He takes my hand and fingers my palm with his thumb as he leads me to our suite.
I’m sizzling where he touches me, nervously prying my hand free when he leads me into the biggest, most spectacular two-bedroom penthouse suite I’ve ever seen. Not that I’d seen one before in person, only movies.
There’s a kitchen area, and windows from floor to ceiling. A living room, a pool table, gold brass chandeliers, a brown-and-beige-patterned carpet, dark woods, Italian leathers. Gorgeous! I could move in here.
Now I see the appeal but won’t admit as much.
Thinking of our bet, I pay attention to the art on the walls. It’s expensive. I can tell by the numbered print and the signature. Painters with indecipherable and artistic signatures are often the artists to watch. It’s like they know from the moment they paint their first work that they’re on to something big, something that will distinguish their work from all others.
I wish Cullen loved art as much as I do. Maybe I could drag him away from the tables to a local gallery.
“Wow. I could just live he—” I spin around and bump into his big warm body, and he bends his head and kisses my words right out of me.
Kisses me stupid. Kisses my toes curled. Kisses my brain blank. Kisses my heart crazy.
