***

Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.

A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.

Jim Whelan is on autopilot.

A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.

Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.

When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.

A stand-alone, new adult romance.

Michel’s Review

Emma Scott has once again blew my mind and held my heart hostage with her latest release, A Five Minute Life. I could not put this book down and read it in one sitting. Her descriptive narrative, emotional content, and pacing made this book come to life. It was like experiencing a big screen movie while reading this book. Each character came to life and jumped off the pages demanding their story be heard and validated.

Thea Hughes was a vivacious young woman experiencing everything life had to offer. She was a talented college art student who had the potential to become one of the greatest artist of her time. She poured her soul into her paintings. Everything changed when a car accident not only stole her memory but also imprisoned her soul. She was trapped inside her own mind and could not find a way out of her continuous loop. Every five minutes her mind resets. Her only way to express herself is through the words in her art. The loop of words are more than mindless rambles, they are a cry for help. Nobody is seeing her silent screams until one day a new orderly with kind eyes comes into her life. He’s there every time she resets. He sees her soul but can he help her find her way out? One thing she knows is he’s willing to follow her into the dark and that she’ll never be alone again.

Jim Whelan has never had love. He was raised in the foster system and has struggled with stuttering all his life. He knows what it’s like not to be heard or not be able to express oneself. He knows what it’s like to be trapped in a life you didn’t choose. When he meets the beautiful patient at Blue Ridge Sanitarium, he knows she’s still there but trapped inside mind. He just has to figure out how to listen to her and give her a way to express herself. He’s willing to follow her into the dark.

Their happily ever after was not easy but it was pure. It was their LIFE, their MASTERPIECE, and their SONG. Together they both learned to express their emotions and thoughts through the power of love.

Emma Scott has written a MASTERPIECE!

I highly recommend A Five Minute Life by Emma Scott!

About UNBROKEN:

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men series comes a captivating novella about a rugged rodeo star who will do anything to protect the people he loves.

When rodeo star Crew Lawton loses everything in a bad bet, he has no choice but to take a new job to pay off his debts – even if it means becoming the face of an expensive male skincare line. Crew is used to getting sweaty and rustling in the dirt, not posing for photo shoots. And he’s certainly not used to being bossed around by a woman who doesn’t even know the difference between bulls and broncs. But Crew owes money to dangerous criminals, and he’ll do anything Della says in order to pay them back and keep them far away from his family in Loveless, Texas…

The launch of her new men’s line for her family’s company means everything to Della Deveaux, and she’s not willing to let some rugged, arrogant cowboy ruin her campaign. Crew Lawton is the last man she would have chosen to represent her chic, sophisticated brand. Unfortunately, her father already invested millions in Crew’s stupidly handsome face. Yet the more time they spend together, Della and Crew realize that opposites do attract. But when the time comes for Crew to face his past mistakes, will he be able to protect his family…and the woman he’s come to love?

EXCERPT:

“This the one, Ms. Priss?” I turned in a circle, hating how restrictive and stiff the refined suit felt. There would be no staying on the horse for eight seconds in something like this. I doubted I could even bend over and pull my boots on in this getup. I failed to see how being dressed like I was going to high tea with the queen was going to convince normal men with a little extra cash to buy the junk in my hair. It felt like overkill, but I would chew my tongue off before telling Della that. I knew how much this campaign meant to her, and I needed her to keep me around so I could get paid. .. and get to kiss her again.

Della circled around me, eyes scanning from head to toe. A small frown tugged her perfectly arched brows down into a V, and her lush, soft mouth pulled into a pout I was becoming achingly familiar with. She lifted a hand and touched the knot of the silk tie where it rested at the base of my throat. She fingered the delicate material and heaved a sigh.

“You look perfect, but something is still off.” She met my gaze with a scowl. “Can you try and look a little less like you’re being tortured? That might help the overall image.”

Her snippy tone and the upturn of her nose made me grin. I rolled my head around, causing my neck to pop and my shoulders to relax. Della’s expression softened when I was no longer standing at attention, but she still let out a dejected-sounding sigh and reached for my tie, releasing me from the expensive noose.

“You have a body made for designer clothes, but something is lost when you put them on. I feel like we’re trying to wrap the Mona Lisa in silk or something. Frankly, it’s annoying that you make denim and flannel look just as good as Versace and Prada.” Once she had the tie off, she told me to go ahead and get back into my own clothes. I asked her what the plan was for the shoot and a brief flare of panic and doubt lit up her catlike eyes. She forced a smile and told me she would figure it out.

Since I was totally a fish out of water in this scenario, all I could do was follow orders like a good soldier. I stripped out of the fitted vest and worked on the tiny buttons of the shirt. I was handing them both off to the flirty wardrobe girl who was enjoying the impromptu striptease when Della’s “Wait a second!” had both of us freezing on the spot.

She was looking at me in the mirror, eyes roving over my half-dressed form. She wandered over to where my jeans and boots were tossed in a haphazard pile on the floor. After a second of rooting around, she came toward me, my black wifebeater in one hand and my boots in the other.

“Put these on with the pants.” She looked at the wardrobe girl with a lifted brow and had to snap her fingers in the woman’s face to get her attention. “Go find me a pair of suspenders, leather if you have them.” The other woman scurried off to do as she was told and I dropped to the seat to pull on my boots.

“I keep trying to turn you into something better.” I looked up at Della as she snorted out a laugh. “But from the start, you were perfect the way you are.”

Michel’s Review

Unbroken by Jay Crownover is a sexy delightful novella introducing her new  Loveless, Texas series. Jay has lived up to her reputation and delivered another emotional romance with the perfect alpha hero and strong confident woman. Unbroken is the perfect combination of sinfully sexy moments and emotionally compelling moments for the city girl and country boy trope. Together these two steamed up the pages and before I knew it the story ended too soon. I wanted more of Crew and Della.

Release Blitz + 5 Star Review: The Lying Hours by Sara Ney – How To Date A Douchebag Series – Book 5

 

 

The Lying Hours
How To Date A Douchebag Series – Book 5
By Sara Ney
Buy
****

 

ABRAHAM
DAVIS—Honest Abe to his friends—IS IN OVER HIS HEAD…
He’s a fixer
and a do good-er. The all-knowing, resident “grandfather” on the
wrestling team who everyone relies on to fix their problems. His teammates go
to him for everything; advice, homework, or when they need a sober driver at
three in the morning–whether he likes it or not.
Abe’s
current mission is easy: mend his roommates broken heart by helping him find a
girlfriend on the LoveU app–without getting caught in the lie…
SKYLAR
GABRIEL. IS. OVER. IT.
Over her bad
grades. Over her meddling older brother and his two best friends. And over
dating douchebags. What she wants to know is: where have all the nice guys
gone?
She longs
for a handsome, sweet, and honest guy who can make her laugh. In one last ditch
effort to prove that he exists—Skylar turns to LoveU.
On her worst
day, Skylar has no filter (it’s a miracle she hasn’t been ditched mid-date).
On her best,
she’s as wholesome, and sweet, as pie.
On Thursday?
She matches with Abraham Davis’s roommate.
Skylar
Gabriel is falling for the wrong guy—she just doesn’t realize it yet.
Why?
BECAUSE ABE
DAVIS IS A LIAR.
Michel’s Review
The Lying Hours by Sara Ney is another fantastic addition to her How To Date A Douchebag Series. This rom-com new adult series has become one of my favorites.
*
Unlike Sara’s Douchey heroes in the previous books of this series, her new hero, Abe Davis is not. He’s a good guy that would do anything for his friends and there lies the problem. He has been recruited by his best friend JB (the real douchebag) to find him a new girlfriend/ slash hookup after JB finds himself dumped by his last girlfriend. Abe has joined the school dating app trying to find JB the perfect girlfriend or at least one who likes sex and is not annoying. It’s his job to vet the women before JB dates them. Swiping left is easy, finding the perfect candidate not so much. When Abe finds the perfect match he knows he’s in trouble because he wants her for himself.
*
Skylar is different than most of her friends. She’s not interested in dating or hookups. She’s content to hang with the girls, have fun, and read her books. When her friends convince her to join the dating app she’s a bit leary but does it anyway. Talking to JB is fun, challenging, and she’s enjoying their banter. Meeting JB in person is a different story. He is a completely different guy, one she doesn’t like. He seems like a real douchebag. When she meets his roommate Abe she knows dating JB is all wrong for her. She likes Abe and wants him.
*
Sounds like a modern college coed “Cyrano De Bergerac” romance with a whole lot more snark and fun!
*
I loved The Lying Hours by Sara Ney and can’t wait for the next book after reading the epilogue.
*
I highly recommend The Lying Hours by Sara Ney. It is a laugh out loud romance!

 

Sara Ney is
the USA Today Bestselling Author of the How to Date a Douchebag series, and is
best known for her sexy, laugh-out-loud New Adult romances. Among her favorite
vices, she includes: iced latte’s, historical architecture and well-placed
sarcasm. She lives colorfully, collects vintage books, art, loves flea markets,

Then He Happened

By Claudia Burgoa

Release Date: May 8, 2019

Blurb

Jason is a cynical rich playboy. He doesn’t take life seriously. He doesn’t believe in settling down.

Eileen’s twenty-seventh birthday is almost here. But as always she’s an afterthought in her parent’s minds. Her family is too busy planning a shotgun wedding for her older sister to pay attention to her. And now she has to help. It’s just another year where she’s overlooked.

But the best man is smoking hot. He actually notices her, and makes her feel special.

Jason doesn’t believe in commitment, but Eileen intrigues him.

She’s not the kind of girl he usually hooks up with. She doesn’t even fall for his charm.

He’s made it his mission to convince her that he’s not the shallow man she thinks he is.

But can Jason give up his playboy lifestyle to become the man Eileen needs?

Michel’s Review

Claudia Burgoa has become one of my favorite authors. She is one of those authors who has the ability to blend several different romance genres (tropes) and create an emotional story which keeps the readers glued to the pages. In her latest release, THE HE HAPPENED, she not only delivered an excellent, fun romance but also created characters that jump off the pages.

*

Eileen and Jason somehow get sucked into planning a wedding for her sister and his cousin. Both of these people are ungrateful, selfish, clueless,and broke. Neither Eileen or Jason has time nor the desire to plan a wedding. It’s bad enough they are not only expected to plan the wedding, they are also expected to pay for it. What starts out as a dreadful duty turns into something else altogether. The crazy adventures of wedding planning lead to an unusual friendship and undeniable romance.

*

Between Eileen’s ungrateful family and Jason’s reservations about love after being jilted at the alter, they both persevered. They found what they both needed. They found each other.

*

I loved the banter between Eileen and Jason. They both were witty individuals. Eileen had middle child syndrome and tended to let her family walk all over her. When she finally stood up to her family, I was jumping out of my seat with joy. When Jason realized he deserved real love and was ready to accept it, my heart melted . Never were two people more suited and perfect for each other.

*

I highly recommend reading Then He Happened by Claudia Burgoa. It is a guaranteed delightful reading experience.

“Who can turn down a sexy hockey star with a big . . . stick? Zack is hot hot hot, and Sugar is the perfect blend of sweet and sassy! Their chemistry sizzles in Boyfriend Bargain!”

— Melanie Harlow, USA Today bestselling author

Boyfriend Bargain, an all-new sexy and emotional sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills, is available now!

IMMBoyfriendBargainBookCover55x85_MEDIUM-new

Wanted: one hot guy with rock-hard abs and a big stick

Broke and desperate, Sugar Ryan has no use for arrogant, bad boy athletes . . . until she’s forced to bargain with the cockiest of them all.

If only he knew she was alive.

Her mission? Get on this hockey player’s radar any way possible.

Zack Morgan is the king of the ice and the bedroom—but nothing prepares him for the mystery girl who shows up everywhere he does—frat parties, his favorite bar, and finally his front door with an offer he can’t refuse. The only rule in her boyfriend bargain: no falling in love.

But after one (um, two) smoking-hot hookups, he’s done with pretending and vows to make their fake relationship real. Too bad she can’t trust a player with a reputation for breaking hearts.

Will this hockey star score his forever girl or will their Boyfriend Bargain end in heartbreak?

Excerpt:

“We should kiss, just get it out of the way and move on,” I say, sure of the crazy idea as each second passes.

There’s a hitch in Z’s breath, and his eyes go straight to my lips. “Works for me.”

“But just one. None of that fancy tongue work.”

“Afraid of falling in love with me?” He grins.

Well. My eyes take in the broad shoulders and the dragon tattoo on his muscled chest. He’s definitely my type: pure, grade A male hotness—exactly what I don’t need. “I won’t fall in love.”

Another grin. “Liar.” 

_______________________________________

Michel’s Review

The Boyfriend Bargain by Ilsa Madden-Mills was more than a new adult sports romance. Although it would seem like the plot was predictable, the story went to another level. The characters were more than college coeds manipulating the system to advance their positions. The both had very pressing situations in life that needed a “bandaid” or a significant other to hold the problems at bay.  Zack Morgan is trying to focus on his final college hockey season before he heads to the Nashville Predators. The pressures of being a superstar player come with problems of their own let alone adding emotional baggage to the heap. Zack needs Sugar by his side to keep the fans and women at a distance so that he can focus on hockey. He’s attracted to her and is falling hard but he’s keeping secrets. Secrets have a way of surfacing at the wrong time and for the wrong reasons. He has to learn to face his own issues before he can fully give himself to Sugar.

Sugar Ryan has not had an easy life. She has had to work hard for everything. She wants to attend Vanderbilt Law School but has been wait listed. She wants to recruit Zack Morgan to be her fake boyfriend for the formal dinner at Vanderbilt for wait list recruits. She has discovered the admissions dean is a hockey fan and knows that Zack will soon be a Nashville Predator. Having him by her side may be the opportunity to make herself stand out amongst the other waitlist recruits. What she didn’t count on was falling for Zack in the process. She has just gotten out of a long term relationship that ended badly. The only thing she needs to focus on now is getting into the law school of her choice.

Life has a way of throwing curves and forcing us to face the hard truths. Life also has a way of sneaking up and rewarding us with what we really need. Zack and Sugar need each other more than they know. Zack and Sugar also need to open their eyes and see what their souls really need.

The Boyfriend Bargain by Ilsa Madden-Mills is more than a new adult romance. It’s a story of finding oneself and sharing your complete self, flaws and strengths, with someone else.

Ilsa Madden-Mills always delivers an excellent story!

New Release and 5 Star Review: Eli’s Triumph by Joanna Wylde – A Reapers MC Novella

 

From New York Times Bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes ELI’S TRIUMPH, a new novella in her Reapers MC series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!

 

About ELI’S TRIUMPH:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes a new story in her Reapers MC series…

Peaches Taylor spent the last seven years slinging drinks and dodging drunks at the Starkwood Saloon. Some might call it a dead end job, but to her it was an investment—another six months, and she’d have enough money to buy the place.

Life would’ve been perfect if Eli hadn’t come home.

Eli King is ready to settle down. He stood by his brothers when they needed him, paying the price for their freedom with his own. Now it’s time to claim his reward—the Starkwood Saloon. He’s got the cash to buy the bar, the skills to run it, and just one person standing between him and his dream: Peaches Taylor.

She’s been driving him crazy since they were kids, and not in the good way. When she was six, she shoved a spider down his pants. When he was ten, he locked her in a closet overnight. Then she hot-wired his car at seventeen, and things got ugly…

They’re adults now, and the Starkwood isn’t a toy to fight over—it’s the hill they’ll die on. No prisoners. No compromises. No mercy.

Peaches Taylor and Eli King are going to war.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

EXCERPT:

“Eli?” she asked, sounding confused. “Why are we talking about Eli?”

“He’s been watching me.”

“Um, I think he’s just drinking a beer,”Megan said. “Maybe checking out your boobs a little, but that’s nothing new.”

Hmm… It couldn’t possibly be that simple, but it did give me an idea. Maybe it was time to create a diversion. I shifted my shoulders, expanding my chest.

Disappointingly, his eyes stayed on mine.

“Someday I’m gonna own this bar, and firing his ass is the first thing I’ll do.”

Megan giggled. “That sounded sort of super-villain-ish. Do you have a lair? I wish I had a lair…”

I blinked, caught off guard. I hadn’t realized that I’d said the words out loud. Eli smirked at me, gloating because he’d just won our little pissing contest. Dammit!

“I can’t believe I wrote to him in prison,” I told her, turning my back on the bikers. “Never should’ve been nice to him. He probably thinks that, deep down inside, we’re friends or something. We’re never going to be friends.”

“Didn’t he give you a ride home after work last night?” she asked, her voice light.

“Gus made him,” I snapped.

“And did Gus make him hug you the other day?”

“He caught me and gave me a noogie. And it hurt, too. It’s not a hug if it leaves bruises.”

“He left bruises?”Megan asked, startled. Shit. I might be able to justify a rumor about him not being able to get it up, but telling her that he’d hurt me for real…yeah, that probably crossed a line.

“No,” I admitted. “That was an exaggeration. But he’s still pure evil, so don’t fall for his shit. Or sleep with him. Every time a waitress sleeps with him, she ends up quitting without notice. Then I have to cover their shifts.”

Megan nodded, looking a little uncomfortable. “Okay, then… Um, I think I’ll go check the bathrooms. Make sure there’s no ugly surprises before things start getting busy.”

“Great idea,” I told her, and she scuttled off. Then I reached for a washcloth because I had lemon juice to clean up. Then I’d have to go back over there and check on them. See if they wanted more… Eli would, I could already tell. Not because he was big on drinking, though.

He just wouldn’t be able to resist an opportunity to order me around.

Michel’s Review

Wow! I was so excited when I saw the Eli’s Triumph by Joanna Wylde was releasing. I have been reading the Reapers MC series since the first book released back in 2013. I have stood in several long lines at book signings just to meet this author. Eli’s Triumph  brings part of the Reapers world full circle. Readers are finally getting an in depth explanation of some of the events that happened in Reapers Fire. At the time those events just seemed like a moment in time that would propel that story to another level. What the readers didn’t realize was that Eli King not only help save Gage and Tinker’s realities but also saved the club. Now readers will get the full story and Eli King will finally get his happily ever after. He’s earned his patch, he’s earned his place in the club, he’s earned their respect, and he’s earned the right to own the Starkwood Saloon. Now he has to earn the love, the respect, and trust of the woman who has meant everything to him his entire life. If he takes his rightful ownership of the Starkwood Saloon he could be throwing away his chance of winning Peaches Taylor’s heart.

Peaches has been saving to buy the Starkwood Saloon. She’s worked there her entire adult life. She has worked hard for the bar and now Eli King is out of prison and buying the place out under her. She is not going to let that happen. Eli has taken too much from her all her life. The only problem is her heart. Her heart is telling her one thing and her mind is telling her something else. Nothing is ever easy with the Reapers MC. Learning to love with your entire heart and learning to sacrifice is what the club is all about.

Eli and Peaches have earned their place in the Reapers MC. They have earned the right to claim their happily ever afters.

Eli’s Triumph by Joanna Wylde is just another perfect layer of goodness in the Reapers MC series.
