All the Beautiful Things by Stacey Lynn

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

She’d been betrayed too many times to hand over her trust.
I’d lost too many people to love too easily.

Together, we were a mess. A constant struggle for peace. Yet it was in each other we found everything we were looking for.
Until tragedy struck and I feared the worst.
Pushing her away would have been the best. Kept us safe and unshaken.

But it was too late. My little fighter had determined what she wanted, and she was willing to go down swinging to finally earn her happily ever after.
It was her determination that kept us together, even through the worst of it.
And when we finally made it to the other side, I knew…

All the ugly things we’d survived could lead to something beautiful.

Promise to Love You by J. Saman

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

Henry Gauthier: Bassist. Gorgeous. My brother’s best friend. And the man who destroyed my heart.

He’s also the man I grew to hate after a one-night stand went horribly wrong. I’ve spent the last three years successfully dodging him like a bullet.

Now, fresh out of a bad relationship and living in a new city, I finally feel like I’m starting to get myself together. And when an opportunity to produce Wild Minds’ newest album presents itself, I can’t help but jump at the chance of a lifetime.

Even if it comes with a caveat.

Three weeks in Hawaii, an impossible to meet deadline, and Henry Gauthier.

Eden Dawson: Spitfire. Stunning. My best friend’s sister. And the bane of my existence.

I’ll be the first to admit three years ago I messed up. I shouldn’t have touched her.

Sort of like now. Because my best friend, my bandmate, made me promise that when it comes to his baby sister, I keep my hands to myself.

Only a woman like her is impossible to resist. And before I know it, despite my best efforts, we’re doing all manner of dirty things to each other.

We vow this only a temporary fling. Promising that no matter what, love is off the table.

Now, I have to make sure two things don’t happen. One, I don’t break my promise to her. Two, her brother doesn’t find out I already broke the one I made to him.

“You’re perfect for this job, Claire. He won’t want to sleep with you. You’re not his...type.”

Dominic Cantrell has been famous almost as long as I’ve been alive, but he remains a dark, volatile mystery.

What I didn’t count on was Dominic distracting me instead. I shouldn’t be so drawn to him. He’s too old for me, too closed-off, and definitely too angry, but I’ve been a good girl for far too long.

Why can’t I be just a little bit bad, especially when my rock star fantasy is so willing to corrupt me?

Our fling has an expiration date at the end of the tour. No strings, no feelings, no heartbreak when it’s over.

I tell myself I won’t fall. But I don’t know if I’m built that way.

Let me back up to the beginning. I have loved Elizabeth since I was nine years old. From the moment she smiled at me and teased me.

Regretting You by Colleen Hoover

💗 BOOK REVIEW 💗

From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us comes a poignant novel about family, first love, grief, and betrayal that will touch the hearts of both mothers and daughters.

Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.

Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body.

With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.

While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together. 

 

Bet On Us by MariaLisa deMora

💗 BOOK REVIEW 💗

Jericho Conway is the type of son most people would be proud of. He doesn’t cause trouble, keeps his head down, does whatever’s asked of him, contributes to the family, and doesn’t talk back to his mom. They’ve been on their own for as long as he can remember, and he’s always done his best to take care of her—lately that’s in spite of his stepdad.

Jericho’s a way-too-mature-for-his-age fifteen (and a half), and he’s feeling stuck in the small community outside Knoxville where they live. Stuck, because no one here is quite like him. He’s different from his classmates, has been all his life, but what sets him apart is one of those secrets that can’t ever be brought to the light of day.

Then his stepfather stumbles onto his secret. And Jericho’s right. There’s hell to pay.

---

Eeerrrrkkk. <--That’s the sound of a screeching halt.

Okay, okay. As the person writing the description, I know Bet On Us might not sound like a totally romantic story right off the bat, but it really is! On the one hand, there’s Jericho himself. He’s amazing, promise. And strong, so very strong. Then we’ve got his uncles, who would do anything for him. In Trent and Jacob, we get to see this dynamic, resilient, and loving couple with deep family ties, especially when you factor in Jacob’s sister and her family. (That’s Jaime, Connor, Nate, and Matt from With My Whole Heart. Oh, and Jordan, Nate’s best friend.) Jericho is finally exposed to the kind of fierce and loyal example for how incredibly sweet love should be, and thinks he might see an echo of the thing that’s always set him apart. Here’s hoping his Coming Out Day gives this precious boy exactly what he needs.

Continuing on …

---

It’s been two years since Trent first watched his husband’s eyes grow misty as they talked seriously about babies. Two years of Trent and Jacob searching for the right clinic, then the right surrogate, and then the ever-elusive “right time.” However, all of their tentative plans come tumbling down when Trent receives a phone call from his hometown. A place he’d long ago left in his rearview mirror, stuffing all the memories associated with his personal Coming Out Day into a deep, dark hole never to be revisited.

Only now, Trent is forced to return, because the call is about the murder of his estranged sister and the health and welfare of a half-grown nephew he didn’t know existed. Thrust into guardianship of Jericho, Trent and Jacob struggle to help the damaged teen deal with his grief and the hidden reasons behind his mother’s death.

*Set in the world of With My Whole Heart, this story is a continuation of characters first introduced there, and while it can be read as a standalone, is best enjoyed as a follow-on to that story.

 

Reputation by Dr. Rebecca Sharp

💗 BOOK REVIEW 💗

From International Bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp... 

Small-town girl. America’s Sweetheart. 
The biggest popstar in the world.
It began with one guy and then the next. 
Until my reputation preceded me. 
Yes, I dated them - all of them. 
Yes, I also broke up with them.. All of them.
Was it too much? The world said yes. Too many, too quickly.
And my star began to flicker.
The world knew nothing about my life and yet, their judgement weighed on me like stone.
My reputation was falling faster than a shooting star and the only way to save it was with the boy who never wanted me.
Zach Parker was a singer, songwriter, and sexy as sin. 
To him, I was just the neighbor’s little sister. 
A pest that had grown into a famous annoyance.
Zach Parker wanted nothing to do with me. 
But he could be tempted - with a stepping stone to fame, that is.
The plan was simple: Childhood Sweethearts Fall in Love on US Tour.
The plan was to let them see what they wanted to see: our ‘romance’ blossom right in front of their eyes.
A romance that Zach had made painfully clear to me years ago would never exist.
I’m told that it was the only thing that could repair my image.
So, every night I’ll stand on that stage and give Zach my heart piece by piece, note by note.
We’ll give them a show they’ll never forget - and a love story that I may not survive.
Because who cares that in order to put my reputation back together, I’ll have to tear my heart apart?

Kozart Savage is the world’s biggest rock star. 
At twenty-five, he’s got it all. Money. Fame. And the adoration of fans everywhere.

Enough to transform his distrusting heart. 
Turns out that’s not how it works... 
Then he meets a bridesmaid hiding out in a hotel bar. 
Probably the only girl on the planet who doesn’t know who he is. 
But she seems to be the one girl who can give him something no one else can. 

Aubrey Prescott just discovered her boyfriend cheating—at her sister’s wedding. 
Trying to escape humiliation, she seeks refuge in a hotel bar. 
While trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces of what was supposed to be an amazing senior year in college, a handsome stranger interrupts her wallowing. 
A stranger who quickly makes her forget why she’s there. 
One who disappears without a second glance. 

But walking away doesn’t always mean letting someone go.

 

The Fall of Troy (The Odyssey Duet, #1) by Dr. Rebecca Sharp

✦ #BlogTour ✦ #Excerpt ✦ #Review 

From bestselling author Dr. Rebecca Sharp comes an enemies-to-lovers epic romance with a forbidden twist...

Love is angry. Love is blind.
Love is envious and loathful.
And I loathed Léo Baudin. My new art professor. My enemy.
I didn't move to Rhode Island for this. I came to forget the Troian Milanovic I'd left behind and start fresh where the damage and betrayal couldn't follow.
But Professor Baudin wouldn't let me.
Cold. Caustic. Captivating. He didn't just push my buttons... 
He lit them all up with the indifferent smirk of an aristocratic French asshole. 
But how much I loathed him only made my need for him stronger. 
To have him would be either victory or loss. There would be no compromise.
To have him would be war.
So I fought back. 
But I was Troy. And he was the wooden horse, full of dangerous secrets I never saw coming. 
I was the one who invited him inside my walls, celebrating without seeing through his disguise. 
And under the cover of darkness, he laid siege to my body, my mind, and finally, my heart. 
The first may be a myth, but this time the history books would show that if Troy fell, it was with her all.

The Fall of Troy is the first book in the Odyssey Duet.

 

The Son & His Hope by Pepper Winters

✦ #BlogTour ✦ #Excerpt ✦ #Review ✦

“Things you should know about me from the very beginning:
I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son.
I am happy being alone.
And that is all I ever want to be.”
 
JACOB
The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson.
It wasn’t a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow.
That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man.
And nothing and no one could change his mind.
 
HOPE
I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent’s life.
He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive.
I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of sorrow that made me want to hug and heal him.
I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father.
We shared similarities.
I recognised parts of him because they were parts of me.
But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried.
He stayed true to his vow to never fall.

 

A Wish for Us by Tillie Cole

✦ #BlogTour ✦ #Excerpt ✦ #Review ✦

From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.
A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.

Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.

Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.

When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.

Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.

Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.

But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.

A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.

 

The Girl and Her Ren (The Ribbon Duet, #2) by Pepper Winters

✦ #BlogTour ✦ #Excerpt ✦ #Review ✦

“What do you do when you write down all your secrets? No…that’s not enough. What do you do when you write down all your secrets and the one person who should never read them does? 
I’ll tell you what you do.
You hope.”

REN
Ren didn’t know the meaning of love until he took Della for his own.
To begin with he hated her, but as the months bled into years, he learned the opposite of hate, dedicating his life to giving her everything.
Every sacrifice, every gift, he gave wholeheartedly.
But then love turned to lust and ruined everything.

DELLA
I was stupid to write my secrets down, but I’d been stupid before so it was nothing new.
I couldn’t blame him, hate him, fix him.
I tried to move on without him.
But no matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to delete the secrets I’d written.
Until something happened.
Until he came back and read my stupid secrets.
And nothing was the same after that.

 

Secret Lucidity by E.K. Blair

✦ #ReleaseBlitz ✦ #Review ✦

This wasn’t supposed to happen. 
But it did.
This wasn’t supposed to be my life. 
But it was.

I was just a typical girl, living a typical life. Nothing was out of the ordinary until tragedy threw me into a turnstile I couldn’t see my way out of. That was, until him.

I never could’ve imagined my heart falling the way it did. Hard, fast, and with unbounding beauty. 

The only problem? 
He was off limits. 
Forbidden. 

But he became my everything, and I became his, so we risked it all. It was only a matter of time until I realized that our risk came with unimaginable consequences. 

My name is Camellia Hale and his is David Andrews, and this is our love story.

Tanaka

I’m a good girl. 

I live by a code that can’t be bent or broken. It is my duty to my family to stay innocent and pure. To marry an Italian man. The stars are already aligned. 

But Nikolai Kozlov re-writes my destiny with five simple words. 

You belong to me now. 

He's Russian mafiya. A thief. A skilled liar with no moral boundaries. He is everything I have been taught to hate. A man who stands for nothing. A man who takes what he wants without a second thought. 

And what he wanted was me. 

He thinks he controls my fate, but what he doesn’t know is, sometimes it’s the good girls you have to watch out for. 

Nikolai

I’m a dangerous man. 

I live by a code. The Vory code. It is my duty to my family to protect the brotherhood. To destroy anyone who threatens what we stand for, including her. 

She’s a dancer. A beautiful little doll. My prisoner, and my new favorite puppet. This mafia princess thinks she has me under her spell, but in the end, she is simply collateral. 

It’s a shame to destroy precious things.

But this is what bad men do.

Nowhere Girl (Foundlings, #1) by Fiona Keane

✦ #ReleaseTour ✦ #Review ✦

Sophia… 

They thought sending me to this supposed tropical paradise would keep me safe. But there’s no place safe for me now. Not when the memories won’t leave me alone. 

I didn’t know what the universe had in store for me, but I definitely didn’t expect Jameson Burke. People think he has more secrets than I do, but he showed me his true self—his smile, his thoughtfulness, his love. 

I can’t afford to fall so far, so deep. Not after what happened. I should run, but somehow my heart keeps coming back to him... 

Jameson… 

I had my own reasons to run. Little did I know the most important piece of my story started and ended with the quiet girl sitting next to me in seventh period. 

Sophia Reid’s shy smile brought my soul out of hiding. Through her, I learned what starting over really means. 

But if I give in to this love, I’ll put us both in danger. 

For a short time, I was whole again, but what they say is right. The old me is dead, and the new one will never know love again.

One Night to Fall (Kinney Brothers, #1) by Kelsey Kingsley

✦ #BlogTour ✦ #Review ✦ #HotCop ✦ 99¢ Sale! ✦ #Giveaway ($25.00 Amazon Gift Card) ✦

Patrick Kinney wasn't a god. He was a parasite, and nobody worships a parasite.

Patrick Kinney was a glob of sticky, persistent peanut butter stuck to the roof of Kinsey McKenna's mouth, and she craved him.

In fact, she had been craving him ever since he set foot in River Canyon, Connecticut, when they were just three years old. And she hated it ever step of the way. (Well, sort of.)

But Patrick has a plan to fix it, and set the wrong things right. Can he turn it all around with one night and a sweet, but painful, trip down memory lane?

Fall in love again in this novella of firsts, second chances, and a little town on the coast of Connecticut, where everything meant everything.

Infamy (RiffRaff Records, #3) by L.P. Maxa

✦ #ReleaseBlitz ✦ #Excerpt ✦ #Review ✦ #RockstarAlert ✦

ONLY FOR...

Landry Cole's life began
when she was nine. Until then the day-to-day turmoil of her early childhood was
the stuff of nightmares. Her father, his wife, and all her aunts and uncles
showed Landry unconditional love, and under their care, she bloomed. But she
never forgot. Fast forward to the fifth year of her surgical residency, and
from the outside, Landry's got it going on. Inside, loneliness and betrayal
color her life until she meets the outrageous and daring Clashing Swell
drummer, Brody Frost.

THE SHORT TERM

Brody's life was golden. He surfed every
morning, his band, Clashing Swell, had just signed with RiffRaff records, and
he was free from emotional attachments. Until he met Landry Cole. To say she
took his breath away was an understatement. But she was a princess to rock
royalty, and Brody was no one from no where. Sure, the tour the band was about
to undertake would change all that, but he wanted Landry now. When she told him
they were short term, she wasn't going to be a tour widow, he thought he'd take
whatever she would give him. Little did he know she was about to give him
everything.

Crave: Part Two (Crave Duet, #2) by E.K. Blair

✦ #ReleaseBlitz ✦ #Review ✦

Weeks became months, and months became years. Each day, nudged Kason deeper into his addiction. Each memory of the girl destroyed fed the craving for what he could never have again. 

Leaving a life-altering first love behind, Adaline tried moving forward to find love and trust and happiness. Pain eventually faded, wounds slowly healed, yet scars were forever left behind.

But some scars feel like kisses. 

When the shattered pieces of their hearts are forced to meet again, the two of them must decide how much pain their love is worth enduring.

This is what happens when one person loves beyond the craving and the other craves beyond the loving.
