SYNOPSIS

The beginning of my sophomore year in college was off to a rough start.

On the first day of orientation, I had an altercation with an infuriating British dude in a campus bathroom.

(The ladies’ room was out of order. So, I used the men’s room. Don’t judge.)

I got home later that night and realized that the foreign student we were expecting to rent a room in my parents’ house was allergic to our cat.

So, the spare room went to someone else: Caleb—the British guy from the men’s room.

And so it began…my love-hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it hate-love in that order?

 

The guy knew how to push every one of my buttons.

Sometimes I’d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.

He’d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.

That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.

So frustrating.

And…

Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.

And hot.

 

He eventually grew on me, and Caleb soon became one of my best friends that year.

Too bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could happen between us—for so many reasons.

I definitely couldn’t fall in love with him, especially since all we had was just one year.

 

the day he came back

Michel’s Review

Once again Penelope Ward has captured my heart with another outstanding novel. Her latest release, Just One Year , demonstrates the power of love and how it changes lives with one simple smile,  one curious glance, or one innocent touch. A heartbeat can change instantly and belong to another from that point forward.

Caleb Yates and Teagan Carroll’s hearts were forever changed when they accidentally met in a smelly mens bathroom. Fate had stepped in and demanded their attention. Caleb became the new foreign exchange student to live with Teagan’s family. Learning to live together is one thing, learning to love one another was natural, and letting go after one year seemed impossible. Caleb and Teagan learned new life lessons and how to follow their hearts. They learn to trust themselves, forgive their families, and open their hearts to new beginnings. Together they could face anything and take on the world.

I absolutely loved this book because it was more than a college romance that expanded geographical boundaries. It was a story of family, heartbreak, forgiveness, and acceptance. It showcased every aspect of love and how important it is to one’s well being. Penelope Ward delivered a phenomenal story with her latest release Just One Year!

New Release + Release Blitz + 6 Star Review: Great and Precious Things by Rebecca Yarros

Release Date: February 25
How do you define yourself when others have already decided who you are? 
Six years ago, when Camden Daniels came back from war without his younger brother, no one in the small town of Alba, Colorado, would forgive him—especially his father. He left, swearing never to return.
But a desperate message from his father brings it all back. The betrayal. The pain. And the need to go home again.
But home is where the one person he still loves is waiting. Willow. The one woman he can never have. Because there are secrets buried in Alba that are best left in the dark.
If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she’s always loved him, and always will…
Great and Precious Things is a heart-wrenching story about family, betrayal, and ultimately how far we’re willing to go on behalf of those who need us most.

Tracey’s Review
It didn’t take but a page or two of GREAT AND PRECIOUS THINGS by author Rebecca Yarros for me to know that this book was going to wreck me in the best possible way. Rebecca’s beautiful words, a world that I fell immediately into and became a part of, and a story that broke my heart and put it back together, make this a great book, and I was riveted, from beginning to end.

A decorated war hero back home in a town filled with people that have never understood him, Camden Daniels’s real strength is the lengths that he will go to for those that he loves, even when that love is not returned. Black sheep, town bad boy, the Daniels boy that will never measure up to either of his brothers, Cam knows what others, including his own father, think of him, but he’s ready to face his demons in order to help his family and the town that he loves. Cam had my heart from early on, and I absolutely adore him.

This book is, at its heart, a love story, but not just one of romantic love. Familial love, love of a place, and self-love are themes that Rebecca weaves throughout this beautiful book. Angst, anger, hatred, desire, love, reconciliation, heartbreak, all of these elements are here, and the story wouldn’t be the same without them. GREAT AND PRECIOUS THINGS is a book that will remain with me for a very long time, and have made me an immediate fan. My first 6-star read of this year, I cannot recommend it highly enough, and I look forward to my next great read from Rebecca. ❤️

Meet Rebecca Yarros
 

I’m a hopeless romantic and adore all things chocolate, coffee and paleo. No, seriously, I need to have a caffeine IV put in. I’ve adored reading all my life, and writing naturally evolved from my love of late nights and promises of one more page.

I’m also a military wife of sixteen years. During my husband’s deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I was devouring a book a day, and during his third deployment, I finally wrote my own. With a somewhat ironic timing, I received my book deal for Full Measures during his fourth deployment, and published a month after he returned home. We’re currently preparing for his fifth deployment, so check out the blog for the latest!
On the homefront, we have six kids. Yes, you read that right—six. If I’m not writing or playing guitar, I’m usually tying hockey skates for our four boys, or sneaking in John Hughes marathons with my two daughters. We fostered and adopted our youngest daughter from the foster system and we’re passionate about helping others do the same through our non-profit, One October! We’re always busy navigating the winding road of our daughter’s recent autism diagnosis, getting our boys to hockey, prepping for a deployment, and generally trying to stay sane. We’re die-hard Mets fans, but our hearts call Colorado home.
If you’ve read all of that, haven’t fallen asleep, and still want to know more about me, check out my blog: http://www.rebeccayarros.com/blog!

Release Blitz + 5 Star Review: Bastard Bachelor Society by Sara Ney – The Bachelors Club Series – Book 1

48246477._SY475_
Bastard Bachelor Society
The Bachelors Club – Book 1
By Sara Ney
***
What is the Bastard Bachelor Society?
 
It’s a gentleman’s club—like the dignified men of the past used to have.
 
Except, we’re not gentleman, and we’re not dignified.
 
We’re ineligible bachelors; bored, jaded and not looking for relationships. Quite the opposite actually 
 
We’re so committed to being single, we’ve created a high stakes bet to see who can remain single the longest. Rules are involved. Prizes.
 
Laugh it up, but I’m no loser. 
 
Enemy number one to my single status? My irresistible neighbor, Abbott Margolis. She with her evil cat Desdemona, and Sexy AF pencil skirts. She’s kind and beautiful and hilarious. We can’t get involved, no matter how much her meddling grandmother pushes us together. But if I was going to lose this bet for anyone? It would for Abbott. 
 
Let’s face facts: I’m a bastard, unwilling to settle down. 
 
Especially when there’s a bet to win.

Michel’s Review
Sara Ney has a brand new series that is going to capture the readers complete attention just like her Douche Bag Series and Jock Hard Series.  Although she’s stepped off campus and out the frat house, her leading men still have a lot to learn about women, love, and relationships. They may have graduated from college but still are holding onto some of their frat house mentality until they meet the right kind of woman to change their way of thinking. Bastard Bachelor Society is the first book in this sassy, saucy, fun loving, and super sexy series.  Brooks Bennett didm’t see this coming. He barely got to break in that blue velvet smoking jacket and cuban cigar.
***
Bachelor Bastard Society is written from multiple POV’s including the precious Pussy of Terror, Desdemona.  Brooks Bennett doesn’t know what hits him when Abbott Margolis and the Pussy of Terror sink their charming claws into him with promises of good food, great company, a fantastic Nan that knows how to give the right gifts, and hopefully great sex. When Brooks realizes what’s at stake, he’s all in even if he has to give up his baseball season tickets, a four wheeler that he was going to buy property for, and a vacation time share home in Myrtle Beach. Sometimes a guy just has to know when to surrender. Sacrifice will bring him greater rewards. It will bring him love.
***
One bachelor down, two more to go. I can’t wait to see what comes next!
***
Sara Ney has once again delivered a fun, heartwarming romance that makes me tingle all over!

Almost Just Friends by Jill Shalvis

Release Date: January 21, 2020

Copy of AJF FINAL cover.jpeg

Almost Just Friends, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis.

Piper Manning’s about as tough as they come, she’s had to be. She raised her siblings and they’ve thankfully flown the coop. All she has to do is finish fixing up the lake house her grandparents left her, sell it, and then she’s free.

When a massive storm hits, she runs into a tall, dark and brooding stranger, Camden Reid. There’s a spark there, one that shocks her. Surprising her further, her sister and brother return, each of them holding their own secrets. The smart move would be for Piper to ignore them all but Cam unleashes emotions deep inside of her that she can’t deny, making her yearn for something she doesn’t understand. And her siblings…well, they need each other.

Only when the secrets come out, it changes everything Piper thinks she knows about her family, herself…and Cam. Can she find a way to outrun the demons? The answer is closer than she thinks—just as the new life she craves may have already begun.

Excerpt:

“Well?” he asked.

She grinned. “That was possibly the most thrilling ride of my life.”

He pulled off her helmet, the look in his eyes saying that he knew he could give her an even more thrilling ride.

She had no doubt. But she hadn’t managed to raise her siblings and get them all a relatively decent life by following a whim, sexy as that whim might be. She’d been afraid of commitment with Ry because … well, she still wasn’t one hundred percent sure. But she thought it had something to do with the knowledge that committing to him would mean becoming something she wasn’t – a person capable of further dividing her heart, handing another chunk of it off to someone, and in turn giving them power to hurt her.

But looking into Cam’s gaze, she couldn’t see him ever trying to make her into something she wasn’t. Life with him would only get better.

But they weren’t going to go there. And if that caused a little teeny tiny spark of sadness, she shoved it aside. This wasn’t the time to dwell. She needed to live in the moment. And that needed to go into her journal. She had it in her purse in the truck. “Do you have the keys?”

“Sure. What do you need, I’ll get it for you.”

Okay, so she could admit her crazy here, or she could keep it to herself. But maybe to prove that this wouldn’t – couldn’t — last, she gave him the truth. “I need to write something in my journal.”

“Okay,” he said without blinking an eye and turned toward the stairs to get to the parking lot.

Just the fact that he’d do it made it okay to stop him. “I can wait.’ Then she stepped into him and pressed her face in the crook of his neck to just breathe him in for a moment, willing herself to remember. Live in the moment. There was no sense in thinking about the future, because as she knew all too well, not everyone got one. So there was no use in spoiling the here and now by running ahead of herself. Besides, she thought as his arms came around her, the here and now was pretty damn amazing. “Thank you,” she whispered against his skin, and then, unable to resist, kissed his throat.

Tracey’s Review

As a fan of Jill Shalvis, it took exactly no time for me to fall in love with her Wildstone series. The characters that inhabit this world are not perfect, but, rather living life the way that most of us do, highs and lows, doing the best that they can. There is a realness to them that makes them more approachable, more relatable, more lovable, and I always truly enjoy getting to know them.

ALMOST JUST FRIENDS, the fourth and latest book in the series, is a love story, yes, but also a picture of an imperfect family dynamic. In both the relationships between Piper and her siblings, and the one between Cam and his father Emmitt, Jill shows just how hard it can be to relate to the people that you’re closest to, even when there is love.

I thoroughly enjoyed all of the interwoven stories here, and seeing the growth that occurs in all of the relationships. There is never a time that I finish one of Jill’s books without it leaving a lasting impression, and ALMOST JUST FRIENDS is no different. This is a book, and a series, that I heartily recommend. If you’re looking for a read that will hit you directly in the feels and leave you the happier for it, this is it. Happy reading. ❤️

FFR - BT banner.jpg

“This is a series I urge every single person to read. It’s so unique and artistic and has me hanging off of every word.”
– Amo Jones, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

Fighting for Rain, the second installment in The Rain Trilogy everyone’s raving about from BB Easton, is out now!

Fighting for Rain final ebook

The world was supposed to end on April 23, but Rainbow Williams’s world ended days before that.

The mass hysteria caused by the impending apocalypse claimed everything she’d ever loved. Her family. Her city. Her will to live.

Until she met him.

Wes Parker didn’t have anything left for the apocalypse to take…he’d already lost it all by the time he was nine-years-old. His family. His home. His hope of ever being loved.

Until he met her.

Brought together by fate and bound by a love that would last lifetimes, Rain and Wes were prepared to die together on April 23.

They were not prepared for what would happen on April 24

Excerpt:

“Did I pass?” Rain asks as I stop at the bottom of the tree house ladder to give her a hand up.

“I think I’m the one who passed.” I give her a swat on the ass as she heads up and chuckle when she yelps in surprise. “I know your song.”

“Oh, really?”

When I climb in behind her, Rain is sitting, facing me with her arms folded over her chest.

For a guy who has nothing to prove, I fucking love proving myself to this girl.

I sit with my back against the plywood wall and strum something softer and slower and definitely sadder than anything I’ve played for her before. I’m afraid it might be too much, considering how far she’s come today, but fuck it. It’s the truth, and right now, the truth—and this guitar—is all I got.

“I think you might be a Paramore girl.”

The simple, soulful melody is synchronized with every beat of my own bleeding heart as I open my mouth and sing the first line.

About a girl watching her daddy cry.

Rain clutches the blanket to her chest and listens as I tell her the story of a woman who’s afraid to get hurt after watching her parents break each other’s hearts. She tries to protect herself. She tries to avoid the pain of being left. But when she finally falls in love, she realizes that it’s worth the risk.

I hope she’s fucking right.

I can’t really see Rain’s expression in the dark, but as I let the final note fade out, I know I’m going to find tears before I even reach for her face.

“How did you do that?” She sniffles, and when she leans into my touch, I know I got her.

I shrug. “When you’re in the system, you get good at figuring people out.”

She inhales deeply and sighs. “So, what’s the name of my new favorite song?”

I place the guitar in the corner and crawl over to her. Laying her down, I take the wadded-up blanket out of her arms and set it behind her head like a pillow. “‘The Only Exception.’”

Gazing down at her, I know now that that’s exactly what she is for me. The only exception to all of my rules.

No getting attached.

Leave before you get left.

Supplies. Shelter. Self-defense.

Survival above all else.

Now, they’ve all been crossed out with a giant X, and next to them, in murderous block letters, are the words Protect Rainbow Williams. That’s all I fucking care about now. Keeping her safe. Keeping her—period.

“Wes?” she asks, her voice small and shaky as she slides her fingers into my hair and pushes it away from my face. “Will you still be here when I wake up?”

Bracing myself on my forearms, I lower myself onto her soft, warm body and press my lips to hers. Blood explodes through my veins on contact, but I don’t move. I hold that kiss until I feel her relax beneath me. Until I know she’ll believe me when I finally promise, “Forever.”

Satisfied, Rain pulls my face back down to hers and kisses me like forever might actually exist. Slowly. Sweetly. Without the ticking clock of April 23 looming over our heads. Without blood on our hands or ash in our hair. Without wonder or worry about how it will end. Because we started at the fucking end.

Now, we get to begin.

Michel’s Review

2020 Favorite

Fighting For Rain and Dying For Rain by BB Easton are my most anticipated novels of 2020. After reading Praying For Rain I could not wait to see what happened on April 23rd to Wes and Rain.

April 23rd has come and gone. They survived but what exactly did they survive? What happens on April 24th and everyday after that. What has become of the world they knew and the new world emerging? The only thing they thought they could depend on was each other but that is another fallacy that is proving to be a lie.

The only truth is the survival instinct has only begun. The world has changed and everyone has choices to make. Some will become leaders, some will become saviors, some will become liars, some will righteous, some will become repulsive, and some will become recluses. Society has broken down and the new world emerging may not be worth surviving for. Dying may be the only option.

I hung on every word and was completely shocked by the direction this trilogy has taken. It is unpredictable, hair raising, adventurous, and philosophical as well as being a red hot romance. Who ever thought the end of the world would be so sexy? Who ever thought the world would end and humanity would be redefined?

BB Easton has my complete attention and my calculated anticipation. I cannot wait for Dying For Rain , the final book in the trilogy to release.

I can easily see this trilogy being made into a major motion picture! Well done BB Easton!

SYNOPSIS

Terminated for inappropriate behavior.

I couldn’t believe the letter in my hands.

Nine years.  Nine damn years I’d worked my butt off for one of the largest companies in America, and I was fired with a form letter when I returned home from a week in Aruba.

All because of a video taken when I was on vacation with my friends—a private video made on my private time. Or so I thought…

Pissed off, I cracked open a bottle of wine and wrote my own letter to the gazillionaire CEO telling him what I thought of his company and its practices.

I didn’t think he’d actually respond.

I certainly never thought I’d suddenly become pen pals with the rich jerk.

Eventually, he realized I’d been wronged and made sure I got my job back.

Only…it wasn’t the only thing Grant Lexington wanted to do for me.

But there was no way I was getting involved with my boss’s boss’s boss. Even if he was ridiculously gorgeous, confident, and charming.

It would be completely wrong, inappropriate even.

Sort of like the video that got me into trouble to begin with.

Two wrongs don’t make a right.

But sometimes it’s twice as fun.

Michel’s Review

I have been a huge fan of Vi Keeland’s writing since she began her publishing career. I have watched her develop her craft, hone in on her reader audience, join forces with Penelope Ward to become part of one the most popular writing teams, and trade her career to follow her heart. She has earned the well deserved success in the romance publishing world. It has been a delight to witness her growth as a writer as well as becoming one of her fangirl Violets. The one thing that has made her a success is staying true to herself and her formula. Nobody and I mean nobody writes a hero like Vi Keeland. Her hero’s are sexy as sin, smart mouthed, dirty talking men who can back up every single word while still being vulnerable and flawed beneath the surface. Their confidence and masculinity is a result of intelligence, sense of humor, ability to value those they love, to respect women at all times, and tune into their personal emotions when push comes to show. Oh and did I say they were sexy as sin … always in a Vi Keeland novel. The best part of Vi’s writing is her ability to match the hero with a saucy heroine that can handle everything he dishes out and give it back with whip cream on top.

Inappropriate was more than an inter-office romance. It was the beginning of something both Ireland and Grant needed in their lives. They had both lived through emotional trauma. They both understood both sides love, the ugly and the beautiful. They both deserved a chance to grasp the beautiful and build their own love story. First they have to get past human resources, the law, family business partners, a bridezilla,a crazy grandpa, a sassy teenager, and crappy contractor. Oh and maybe their very own flawed hearts. Let the fun begin… Grant and Ireland are in for an Inappropriate sexcapade Vi Keeland style!

I absolutely loved Inappropriate by Vi Keeland . There is nothing like a Vi Keeland reading adventure!
