Release + Review - My True Love - Melissa Foster

 




Can a man who resents the hand he's been dealt and a woman who spends her days grateful for every little thing find true love in each other's arms--or are their differences stronger than both of them? Find out in this funny, sexy, heartfelt romance, and fall in love with Grant and Jules on the sandy shores of Silver Island, home to coffee shops, boat races, and midnight rendezvous.

Even war heroes need a little help sometimes...
After spending years fighting for his country and too damn long learning to navigate life with a prosthetic leg, Grant Silver returns to Silver Island to figure out a future he couldn't fathom without fatigues and a gun in his hand. He'd almost forgotten how a man could suffocate from the warmth and caring community in which he'd grown up, and if that weren't bad enough, his buddies' beautiful and far-too-chipper younger sister won't stop flitting into his life, trying to sprinkle happy dust everywhere she goes.

As a cancer survivor, Jules Steele knows better than to count on seeing tomorrow. She doesn't take a single moment for granted, and she isn't about to let a man who used to be charming and full of life waste the future he's been blessed with. She's determined to get through to him, even if it takes a few steamy kisses...

 

Johnaka's Review
“Getting the guy, 5 stars”

Jules and Grant. Okay, so I’ve been interested in Julies since I first read about her family. She’s just so freaking happy. Then you have Grant and he’s, well, not. Jules is Grant’s sister's best friend. He grew up with her brothers and their families are tight. But when Grant came home from war a changed man, he was just that, changed. He separated from his family even more and Jules was sick of it. Jules reminded Grant what it was like to be happy. Slowly their relationship changes. The question is, will Grant be the one in the way of his own happiness? Only one way to find out.

I adored My True Love. It was the sweet kind of romance that I didn’t know I needed.

Release + Review - The Rebel - Kendall Ryan

 


I never thought I’d see her again. 

We shared one hot night together back in college before our paths took us in different directions.

But now, the most brilliant and beautiful woman I’ve ever met is back in my life. And the chemistry I remember? It’s more combustible than ever.

Except…our fling is forbidden and must exist only in secret. Her rules, not mine.

I can’t be her forever. I’m not that guy, and even she knows it.

But I can’t stay away from her either. I’m determined to claim not just her body but her heart, even if that’s the one thing she’s vowed not to give me.


Louise's Review

The Rebel is book 1 in the new Looking to Score series, there is also a quick ‘One Night with The Rebel’ 0.5 book which I highly recommend reading; it gives you the backstory of these 2 amazing characters.

Eden and Holt shared a night, one that they both bare their souls to each other and were the most vulnerable they have ever been; that one-night turns into nothing and its not until 6 years later that they come face to face again and remember the connection they once had. Keeping secrets can blow up in your face but when you have the support of everyone around you its not so bad.

I personally really enjoyed this story, Holt and Eden’s chemistry was off the charts and I couldn’t get enough of them. I cannot wait to get my hands on book 2, The Rival.

Release + Review - Playing for Keeps - Jessica Prince

 


When it came to the men in her life, Charlotte Belmont was cursed. She’d known losers, cheaters, abusers, and criminals, so it went without saying, she stopped trusting her judgment a long time ago. Then Dalton came into her life; a good, dependable man who made her heart race and her body hot. When she felt herself falling for him, she did the only thing she could think to protect them both . . . she ran like hell. 

Dalton Prescott was a protector by nature, so when the woman he’d been tasked to keep safe was almost killed on his watch, he carried that guilt like a weight on his shoulders. What made matters worse was that before everything went south, Dalton had started to care for Charlotte in a way that had nothing to do with his job. 

She’s determined to ignore their attraction and keep him at a distance, but he’s playing for keeps and has no intention of losing. However, when ghosts from the past start popping up, bringing with them a whole new threat, Dalton may be the only man who can keep her safe this time.

Johnaka's Review
“Second chances, 5 stars”

Ugh, Prince killed it again. Playing for Keeps hit me in the feels. Poor Charlotte has had a rough life and thinks of herself as unworthy. Dalton knows she’s worth it. Sometimes, though, it takes more than a little work to convince someone they deserve to be happy. Charlotte’s walls though are more than high and no matter how tempting Dalton is, she just doesn’t know. One-click Playing for Keeps to see what happens.

If you love small town romances, swoony alpha men, and headstrong women, look no further. Prince has you covered.

His eyes were still dancing with humor when he finally got a hold of himself and looked back down at me. “What’s so funny?”

“The fact you thought you had to convince me you weren’t perfect,” he said, a chuckle still shaking his chest. “Believe me, Thumbelina, I’m well aware of the fact you aren’t perfect.”

My eyes narrowed into slits when he started cracking up again. “All right,” I said snootily. “You don’t have to laugh so damn hard about it.”

“You did everything you could to make my life miserable when I was put in charge of keepin’ you safe. You were loud, you picked fights constantly, you’re hardheaded, you had shit taste in music, you’re messy, and you were constantly eatin’ my yogurt, even though I put my name on it before stashing it in the fridge. Christ, baby. You pretended to have menstrual cramps just so you could sneak out on me when I was tryin’ to protect you. Straight up, you were a pain in my ass, so trust me when I say you don’t have to warn me.”

I squirmed in his arms until he was forced to let me go, and took a step back, planting my hands on my hips while shooting fire from my eyes. “First off, I do not have shit taste in music.”

“Babe, every one of your playlists is like bein’ trapped at the g***** Lilith Fair with no escape.”

“Second,” I continued, ignoring his dig, “I’m not messy. I know exactly where everything is.”

His brows climbed high on his forehead as he looked around my apartment to the piles of clothes and shoes strewn about.

“I got really tired after finishing my laundry,” I defended snappily.

“But I’ll have you know, they’re all clean, and like I said, I know exactly what is in each and every pile.”

He grinned arrogantly, and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do more, kiss it or smack it off his sexy, stupid face. “Whatever you say, sweetheart.”

“And last, that yogurt was in my fridge. That means, labeled or not, it was fair game.”

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

Release + Review - Levi - Jessica Ames

 



Levi
 
As Secretary of the Untamed Sons MC, I know my place. I'm the youngest member to ever become an officer and I'm not doing anything to put that in jeopardy. Then I meet Noelle. She's a club bunny. Brothers don't claim the women who service our club, but I want her like I want my next breath. For her, I'll put my position on the line and risk the wrath of my president.
 
Noelle
 
After the death of my sister, my need to get revenge pushes me into the arms of my enemy. I want to tear them down, destroy their whole club and I'll stop at nothing to get my revenge. Then I meet Levi. He changes my outlook, makes me realise that the Sons are not all bad, even if they have a few rotten apples in the barrel.
 
I'm falling hard and fast, but I'm in too deep. Telling him the truth of who I really am will get me killed, but if I don't we can never be together.

Louise's Review

Levi is book 4 in the Untamed Sons, a series that I have been reading from the beginning. These men are not for the faint hearted.

Noelle has a score to settle, she has her eye on the price but when Levi continues to show her that she is more than the club bunny her feelings start to shake the foundation leaving her cracking.
Levi has done something that no one advises too, fall for a club bunny; but Noelle isn’t like all the other and she has captured his heart and he will go against his brothers to stand up for what he believes is his future, his own be dammed. When headlines hit the front page and the dust settles will their future have a chance ?

I personally really enjoyed this story, The Untamed Son’s are 1% bikers that take their roles and club very seriously. I look forward to Titches story, I have a feeling its going to rip my heart out!

Release Boost - She's Still the One - Kaci Rose

 


Bro Code Rule #1 – You can’t have your best friend's younger sister.
 
Austin
What is it that guys I date don’t seem to understand what a causal relationship is?
That doesn’t mean to propose to me. This is why I packed up everything into my car and I’m now heading to my brothers.
Only he’s not there. His best friend Dallas is.
Dammit, he’s the reason none of my relationships have worked out. I compare them all to how he treats me.
When they go on tour and drag me along it’s hard to hide feelings in the small space of a tour bus. But my brother has made it very clear.
Dallas is no good for me. We both risk losing my brother if we go any further.
 
Dallas
It sucks when you can’t have the one girl you love.
When the band I started with Austin’s brother took off girls were easy. It was less messy having flings, but it earned me a playboy reputation.
Then she moves into the house with us.
Even when her brother has made it perfectly clear she is off limits I can’t seem to stay away.
She is still the only one who makes my heart race.
Can I convince them both I’ve changed, and I will be a one-woman man the rest of my days if she just chooses me?

Release + Review - Mateo - K.L Savage

 



Even without a memory, the world is a dark and damned place.
There are things around us that regular people don’t know about...

I know those things.
I’ve done those things.
It’s the way of this world when you’re on the throne.
This temple is rightfully mine.
I am the crown.
This isn’t just my life.
It’s my soul.
My empire.
My fortress.
And her.

She’s too sweet, so innocent, so na├»ve to the world around her and I want to immerse myself in it.
But there is an ill twist hanging in the air.

Maximo is alive.
Unfortunately.
And I want him dead, but I am more devious than that.
My brother took too much from me.
I have to build everything from the ground up because he tarnished it.
Nora has been threatened.
And I want him abolished.
Her mother is useless.
I’m glad her time is coming to an end .
The kingdom is mine.
I will kill.
Steal.
Ruin.
And not blink twice while I do it.
No one turns their back on me and gets away with it.
I have been test.
I have be tried.
And I have defeated my trials.
It is my turn.

Nothing is going to stop me from having what I deserve.
Money.
Power.
Vengeance.
Redemption.
Lussuria.
And love.


Johnaka's Review 
“Age gap, 5 stars” 

I love a good age gap and that’s exactly what Mateo is! I won’t lie I’ve been following the Ruthless Kings series since the beginning so I’ve been patiently waiting for Mateo’s story. Well, it was worth the wait. I don’t want to give too much away but Mateo falls back into his old life and when he does he meets someone unexpected, Nora. She’s everything he’s missed since his first wife and he will stop at nothing to get her. Will he be able to convince her he’s playing for keeps?

These two are explosive and you won’t regret one-clicking them. Now to wait for the next.

TRAILER
 
 
 
EXCERPT
 
One month after escaping the clubhouse…
 
I haven’t emerged from my Zio’s home since the escape. I don’t want the Kings to know where I am just yet or what I’ve been up to. Zio has been the face of the casino and taking care of business. I do not need to leave the house to know my face is on wanted posters for the Kings. It was a shit storm, Zio said, when he went to retrieve Natalia. The Kings were not happy. He barely got out of the door without getting shot or beaten.
He had to reassure them the only instruction he received from me was to pick her up. He had to swear to them he had no idea where I was. And they have been keeping a close eye on him.
They are waiting for me to slip, but this isn’t their fight.
“Please,” Maximo begs, clutching the bars of the dungeon Zio keeps underground.
There’s the house level, the basement, and then below that is the dungeon. It hasn’t been used for some time, but better late than never, I always say.
I think. I feel like I used to say that. Feels right.
“Water,” he croaks, reaching through the bars. “Fratello.”
I slam my fist against the bars and scream, “Do not fucking call me that! You lost that privilege when you tried to sell your niece. My fucking daughter. You filthy piece of shit. You think I care if you’re thirsty? Hungry? Or need to take a piss in something other than that fucking bucket in the corner? Let me tell you something, I’m here to watch you wither away, Maximo. You want fucking water?”
I snake my hand through the bars and grab him by his filthy shirt. I yank him forward, his cheek pressed against the iron bars. My lips are close to his ear and I whisper, “Drink your own piss.” I slam his head against the bars and knock him out. He falls to the floor limp and unconscious.
I tug on the lapels of my suit and sigh. I feel the overwhelming need to wash my hands.
I sidestep a puddle as I walk out of the dungeon. It’s your typical dark and gloomy cell. There’s no window, a dirt floor, and the lamps on the ceiling are powered by lighter fluid. Zio did not pour the family fortune into this dirt jail, that’s for certain. I climb up the stairs and grab the string above on the ceiling that controls the single lightbulb and tug.
Darkness.
Good. Let Maximo get lost. I don’t give a fuck.
I make my way through the basement and up the stairs to the main level of the house.
“Hey Papa,” Natalia greets me as she sits on a stool at the kitchen island, sipping her cappuccino she made.

K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.

They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women they love.
If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.

Johnaka's Review
“A long time coming, 4 stars” 

Dallas and Austen have known each other her entire life. He is not only her brother's best friend, but hers. It’s hard finding a HEA when you compare every guy to the one you can’t have. When Austen moves home and into the house, Dallas and her brother share things heat up. The question is, will they give into temptation or will they forever be circling each other?

I genuinely liked She’s Still the One. I have never read Rose before and plan to again. There were a couple times I not only wanted to sucker punch the couple (individually) but also Austen’s brother.

“For sale: Beachcomber Inn. This charming B&B has seen better days, but a little TLC will bring it back to life. Price: $1 to the right owner…”
 
Evie Baxter has never been impulsive… Until the night she goes online to buy a new bathrobe, and winds up the proud owner of a bed and breakfast on Cape Cod. She’s hoping life in Sweetbriar Cove will be a fresh start away from the sympathetic smiles she’s been getting, ever since she was widowed before her thirtieth birthday.

When he’s not driving her crazy with his playboy ways, that is…
 
Local firefighter, Noah Montgomery, isn’t looking to put his heart on the line. He’s sworn to keep his life simple and drama-free, until the new owner of the Beachcomber Inn arrives in town, and makes him think twice about his solo plans.

Johnaka's Review
“Starting over, 5 stars”

If you're looking for a story about two people starting over, then look no further. Evie and Noah both deserved a HEA, and Grace definitely gave them that. I loved the idea of Evie buying an Inn for a dollar. I loved how they met. I enjoyed the secondary characters who just kicked the story up a notch. If you're looking for a light read that goes by in the blink of an eye, look no further. Forever Summer is the one for you.
