Release + Review - The Wives - Tarryn Fisher

New York Times bestselling author Tarryn Fisher delivers a pulse-pounding, fast-paced suspense novel that will leave you breathless. A thriller you won’t be able to put down!

Thursday’s husband, Seth, has two other wives. She’s never met them, and she doesn’t know anything about them. She agreed to this unusual arrangement because she’s so crazy about him.

But one day, she finds something. Something that tells a very different—and horrifying—story about the man she married. 

What follows is one of the most twisted, shocking thrillers you’ll ever read. 

You’ll have to grab a copy to find out why. 

Jenn's Review 
Get ready for a mind forking you will have to see to believe! The Wives took what I thought I knew and threw it out the window. Needless to say, I did not put this book down until the very end. Even then I was left speechless.

The Wives is a mystery meets thriller with a dash of heat and romance. What would you do if the man you loved also shared himself with two others? Even crazier, you agreed to the arrangement? This book explores polygamy in a refreshing context.

I don't want to say much more as this book is a gem that needs to be enjoyed without even a hint about what you are about to experience. I wish I could read it again with fresh eyes and explore it all over again.

Release - The Set Up - Rachel Van Dyken

The Setup, an all new contemporary romance by #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken, is LIVE!

The first day she was sitting by herself — I felt sorry for her. After all, it couldn't be easy wrangling all the testosterone at Wingman Inc as one of the only female office managers.

 The second day she literally counted her carrots during break — she had seven by the way, right along with seven sips of her drink in between taking seven tiny little bites of the first carrot.

 Now I'm not one to brag, or maybe I am, but math and science fascinate me, so do problems. And this woman screamed puzzle from the way she ducked her head every time anyone looked at her, to the way she counted food and tapped the table when she didn't think anyone was watching.

 I'd like to think I took pity on her that day when, in fact, she was the one that took pity on me and asked if I needed a friend. She assumed I had a learning disability since I'd been staring so damn hard.

 Things would have ended there, except, my bosses need someone to test the new Wingman App and since I was the only single guy on the floor — I was nominated, right along with the only single woman, the same one who thinks I need to use my fingers to count.

 Apparently rumors of my sexcapades throughout college reached even her ears, because she wants nothing to do with me, which makes beta testing a bitch. I have thirty days to win her over and prove myself to my bosses.

 One thing's for certain, I'm going to have to buy a hell of a lot of carrots.

Release - Avoiding Temptation - Rachel Van Dyken

Avoiding Temptation, an all new contemporary romance in the Bro Code series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken, is LIVE!

I hit on her first.

 Realized she was my best friend Finn's little sister second.

And got a bloody nose third — compliments of Finn after he watched me nearly score with the new underclassman.

 After all I did have a reputation on campus, word on the street was that a girl could orgasm within one minute just watching me eat Lucky Charms.

You can't make this stuff up — even though it was at least four minutes and included outside circumstances. Ahem, I digress.

Point is, not only did I earn the attention of the worst sort of girl for me — my best friend's only sibling — but now she's out to seduce me.

 Me! One of the most famous Pleasure Ponies of them all!

 I can't shower — she follows me to the bathroom. Literally.

I can't sleep — Lucky me, she lives in the same dorm.

 And I can't focus on anything except for her taunting eyes every single time something goes her way.

 I want her, but I don't want her to know I want her, and I definitely don't want to die before graduation, which is looking more and more likely considering we can't keep our hands off each other.

Something's gotta give, and I have an inkling I should probably start writing my eulogy now because that something is probably going to be me.

Release + Review - Manhattan - Kandi Steiner

Manhattan, a standalone in the Becker Brothers series, a small town, country, friends-to-lovers romance, is LIVE! 

The fire... the guitar... THE FEELS!

Everyone knows not to fall in love with your best friend.

But when your best friend is Michael Becker, it’s impossible not to.

He’s everything our town knows a Becker brother to be: devastatingly handsome, charming as a thief, and the icing on the cake — a sentimental musician who’s never without his guitar.

And he was mine. At least, that’s what I’d convinced myself.

Our bond was born in elementary school, strengthened by circumstance and the promise to always be there for each other, no matter what. And the best thing about my life was being friends with Michael Becker.

Until it was the worst.

I watched him fall in love with someone else, and helped patch him back up when she left him behind. But when he drops the bomb that he’s moving to New York, I realize it’s my last chance to tell him how I feel. And I ask him to make one more promise.

One summer. One list of adventures to remind him that our small town has more to offer than memories of the girl who left him behind.

One last chance to tell him I’m in love with him.

And I’m just dumb enough to believe that maybe he could love me, too.

You'll love this book if you love:
➔ small town romance
➔ country romance
➔ summer romance
➔ romantic mystery
➔ friends-to-lovers
➔ slow burn
➔ angst

Johnaka's Review 
“Can she change his mind? 5 stars”

Michael Becker’s best friend has always been Kylie. He just kind of forgot that when he got a girlfriend. When his girlfriend leaves and he’s left floundering its Kylie who picks up the pieces. How had he missed that his best friend has changed over the years? When did she get boobs? Has she always been in love with him or are his brothers wrong? There are so many questions and so little time to figure them out. So soon after his disastrous breakup is it smart to move on? Especially with someone like Kylie?

Kylie has been in love with Michael for as long as she can remember. Sometimes you love someone when they don’t love you and that’s okay. But time is running out and she needs to tell him how she feels before he leaves. Will she be able to change his mind not only about her but about leaving? Only one way to find out.

Dear god did Steiner gut me with Manhattan. My heart broke for Kylie. That girl…she loved Michael silently but fiercely for years. It made my heart hurt for her but respect her like no other. Yeah, there were times I wanted to Gibbs slap Michael upside the back of his head, but he’s 18. By the end he had it together. Steiner is killing it with this series and honestly, I don’t want it to end. But at the same time I cannot wait for the next book.

No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

Release + Review - Unexpected Bond - Kaylee Ryan

Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, the universe decides to tilt your world on its axis.

I had a plan, and I was moving forward until the day my world was flipped upside down.

It’s a challenge I wasn’t prepared for, but one I had to face.

How do you combine the life you thought you had to the one you’re living?

One breath.
One second.
One minute.
One hour.
One day at a time, you learn to live with your unexpected bond.
Johnaka's Review 

“Broke my heart, 5 stars”

I hated Unexpected Bond…I hated it because I bawled THE WHOLE TIME!! I do not cry when reading, sometimes I will tear up and very rarely does a tear slip out, but Unexpected Bond broke me down into a freaking sobbing mess who was questioning my life and that of Ryan’s. Do not read Unexpected Bond unless you need a good emotional break down. Was the writing amazing? Clearly. Do I question Ryan’s sanity? For sure. One thing is for sure though, she nailed it if tears is what she was going for.

I want to write a traditional review detailing both hero and heroine and how they clicked and their battle but I can’t. Unexpected bond is so much more than that. It will push you to your breaking point. It will make you question unconditional love and life as you know it. Unexpected Bond isn’t a love triangle, so far from it. But it is a book about how far one will go for those that they love. The bond between Seth, Mara, and Amelia is unlike anything I have ever read and probably never will again.

Congratulations for emotionally breaking me Ryan, can I have the next book now please? To you know…put the pieces back together.

Release + Review - Seducing Mrs. Robinson - Rachel Van Dyken

Seducing Mrs. Robinson, an all new contemporary romance by #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken, is LIVE!

We've all been there, some more than others, you know what I'm talking about, where you have the hots for the new business teacher.

 I was one hundred percent that guy. I shamelessly flirted with her my senior year, only earning her irritation more and more. On graduation, I stood up to her husband after he got violent, and I'll never forget the look in her eyes when she told me it wasn't my place.

Fast forward to my senior year of college and what do you know, the new adjunct professor is the one and only Mrs. Robinson, she's eight years older than me and smoking hot. Did I mention divorced?

She looks at me like I'm trouble, and I'm only happy to deliver on that promise. I'm going to show her how a real man treats a woman and use every weapon in my Pleasure Pony arsenal to do it.

Go big or go home.

PURCHASE LINKS – 99c for a limited time!

Louise's Review 
Swagger & Sass is book 14.5 from Autumn’s Lost Kings series; a long-standing series that will pull you in a want to be part of their family any way possible.

Rooster has a new position in his Lost Kings Charter and he is taking it seriously but when he comes across a gorgeous woman splashing around ‘drowning’ he wants nothing more than to forget his responsibilities, but his club comes first & his new president needs him. Shelby is juggling 2 jobs, and when her white knight comes into her life how can she say no, especially when he keeps saving her.

Having read a shorter version of this story in Love, Loyalty and Mayhem Anthology I knew the base line of the story, and while this isn’t your typical HEA story because they are far from finished it is a HEA for now novella.

I really did enjoy this story; I was hoping for more but I knew this a was novella and a HEA for now story. I can’t wait to get their full story.

Release + Review - Wait for Me - Tia Louise

Dear Taron,

I should have told you this before...

Dear Taron,
Is there a time-limit on forgiveness?
If there is, I haven't reached it... 

Dear Taron,
I still love you... 

Taron Rhodes was my brother’s best friend.

He was sexy as sin.
But he was more than that…
He was ponytail-pulling, ice down your shirt teasing, throw you in the lake screaming… 
Strong, tanned arms and bright green eyes over a heart-stopping, naughty grin… 
Did I mention his tight end? 
I gave him my first real kiss, my heart, my everything.
I said I’d wait for him…

I’m still waiting, because Taron Rhodes is still the man of my dreams,
And I have a secret that has his bright green eyes.

Noel LaGrange stole my heart when she was only eighteen—pushing me off a flatbed and calling me a city slicker. 
Her brother Sawyer would kick my ass if he knew how many times we made out that summer, how close we got.

Everything changed when Sawyer and I joined the military.
We were honorably discharged, but I didn’t go to her.
Instead, I went back to the city… where no amount of money, no amount of pills can heal this wound.
Only her whiskey eyes and dark hair, her slim arms and her sweet scent, give me hope. 
I broke her heart just as surely as I broke mine, but I’m going back to make it right.
If she’s still waiting…

(WAIT FOR ME is a STAND-ALONE small-town, second-chance romance with a guaranteed HEA. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

Louise's Review 
Wait for me is a standalone 2nd chance romance, while this is a standalone we have previously met Taron in Boss of Me.

With a few weeks to kill Taron decides to head to his friends Orchard to help with the harvest, what he never expected to find was the one woman who could turn his world upside down. When events lead Taron down a different path, he is left with scars that run deeper than the surface, Noel is just holding it together she has to adjust to her new life.

I really enjoyed this story, Taron and Noel have such amazing chemistry; while they were not perfect by any means they created a life for themselves that was.

I cannot wait to read more from Tia in the future.

Star Ratings; Plot: 4/5 Characters: 4/5 Heat: 4/5 Writing Style: 4/5 Overall: 4/5

Johnaka's Review 
“Second chances, 5 stars”

I love a good second chance romance, especially if the hero is broken. I love a good best friends sibling romance. So, the fact that Wait for Me is both of those and I know and trust Louise’s writing I knew I was in for a good time. I devoured Wait for Me. I set aside my adulting needs and just read until I was done and I have zero regrets about it.

Taron didn’t know what to expect when he visited his buddies farm before they both set to deploy. He didn’t expect to fall in love so fast. Then deployment happened and he saw and did things that changed him into a man who didn’t feel worthy. After the worst possible break up ever will he be able to convince Noel to give him a second chance?

Noel watched love break her father when her mother died. She’s seen the good and the bad. She fell in love and never thought Taron would hurt her but it almost killed her. When he shows back up will she be able to keep him at arm’s length? Or will she put her heart on the line once again? What about the secret she’s been keeping.. Only one way to find out.
