COVER REVEAL - Taming Hollywood's Baddest Boy by Max Monroe



Look at



and its gorgeous cover!

 
Do people say they hate someone’s guts so that they can still fall stupidly, head-over-heels in love with the other parts?
Asking for a friend.

Taming Hollywood’s Baddest Boy, an all-new steamy laugh-out-loud romantic comedy standalone from New York Times bestselling author Max Monroe, is coming March 12th and we have the dreamy cover!



Okay, fine. I’m not asking for a friend.

I’m asking for me—and I’m begging you to tell me that the practice of falling in love with your should-be-enemy is common.

Please tell me that I’m not the only person to track down a guy—who used to be Hollywood’s baddest bad boy before he left LA for good—at his off-the-grid cabin in Alaska, show up unannounced, and find him gloriously naked.

This probably happens all the time…right?

Tell me I’m not alone in my stupidity—that I’m not the only woman who would fall for gorgeous blue eyes and a sexy devilish smirk, even if they belong to a broody, mysterious jerk.

Please. Please. Please. Tell me I’m not alone in this.

For the love of everything, I need all the supportive girl power I can get if I’m going to convince Luca Weaver to come back to Hollywood—otherwise known as the place he hates so much that he ghosted Oscar-level success and escaped to no-man’s-land for the last eight years just to avoid it.

Yeah, don’t worry—that smoke you’re smelling isn’t your house catching fire as you read this…it’s just my career and what was previously known as my heart going up in flames.

Gah. Is it just me, or am I totally, completely, and utterly screwed?

The Girl Who Cried Captive by Heather Hildenbrand and Bam Shepherd #TheGirlWhoCriedCaptive


by 
Heather Hildenbrand and Bam Shepherd  

#TheGirlWhoCriedCaptive


 Romy thought that being kidnapped by a pack of douchebag werewolves was the worst thing that could happen to her. Turns out she's the worst thing that could've happened to them.

Romy isn't going to let a little something like getting kidnapped get her down. She's determined to turn the tables on her captors. Using her wits and somewhat questionable charm, Romy uses her time in captivity to learn her captors secrets.

But the secrets she discovers still hold her captive. Can she find a way to save more than herself? Or will the secrets she learned hold her prisoner long after she’s escaped?




Okay, this is not a drill, this is a real problem - how do I rate this book if the first one was already five stars and this one is just ...wow!? I can't rate it higher than five stars but if I could, I definitely would!  As much as I already loved The Girl Who Cried Wolf, this sequel simply blew me away.

I loved the world-building, the story and the characters in the first book and this one, The Girl Who
Cried Captive has all of this and so much more.
I can't count the number of times that I burst out laughing, that I grunted something like, "Ha!" and "Yes!" or "Take that!", ranted and raged a bit and smiled indulgently. Somehow the story flows even better, the wit and the intensity are off the charts - oh, well, and the guys are not that bad either.

I started to read this book the moment it turned up on my kindle because...did you read the first one?!? Do you know where we left our heroine?!? Right. That's why.
Many action-filled fast-paced moments and emotional outbursts later, this book kept me glued to my reader till the very last page. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book, I'm dying to find out what happens next!

Until it Fades by K.A. Tucker #UntilItFades #audiobook





Synopsis
Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania (population 3,000 outside of tourist season).
And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed date, Catherine saves a man's life. It isn't until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has rescued: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.
Catherine has already had her 15 minutes of fame, and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works. For a time.
But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. There's an immediate connection, and it's more electric than the bond of two people who endured a traumatic event. It's something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn't sure she can handle, something she is afraid to trust.
Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine...before the spark fades?

 Review

Once again an amazing story by K.A. Tucker with great characters that kept me glued to my mobile.

Not only were the story and the book itself amazing but I also loved the narration. It was vivid and made a great book even better. At one point I found myself standing in the hallway at 2 am, clutching my mobile in my hand, being unable to go to bed because I wanted too much to listen to the story instead of going to bed!

I loved this book and having finished the audiobook read by Shayna Thibodeaux, I can't wait to buy the paperback as well because it really is THAT good that I need both!

Unbreakable (Cloverleigh Farms #4) by Melanie Harlow #Unbreakable


 




 Synopsis

In hindsight, I should not have had that fifth mimosa at Breakfast with Santa. 

Or the sixth, seventh, and eighth.

But my shame over the public meltdown that resulted was nothing compared to being abandoned by my husband of fifteen years for a much younger woman—and did I mention she’s pregnant?

For the sake of my children and my pride, I packed up and headed for my childhood home and the small town where I grew up. Cloverleigh Farms would be the perfect place for a fresh start.

Falling for Henry DeSantis wasn’t part of the plan.

Sure, he’s easy on the eyes and hard in the bedroom (also the hallway, the bathtub, and on top of his desk), but he’s newly divorced too, and things between us are moving so fast I’m afraid neither one of us has had enough time to heal. Not to mention the fact that I’m a single mom now—my kids have to come first.

But Henry makes me feel beautiful and sexy and wanted and strong—I haven’t felt that way in years. We understand each other, and when I’m in his arms, I’m tempted to trust again. To love again. To let myself be loved without fear.
But deep down, I’m terrified.

Is this all too much, too soon? Or am I a fool to let a second chance at happily ever after pass me by?


 Review


I loved all of the books in the Cloverleigh Farms series but I think Unbreakable might be the one that I love best. Sylvia and Henry's story is intense and turbulent and you can feel their chemistry and you can also feel how much both of them need the other one to heal, to feel desirable, to feel complete.
Sylvia's world just broke apart when her husband left her for someone much younger and Henry, well, Henry and his wife had their own issues that had them drift apart. 




Throw Sylvia's two kids into the mix who were deeply hurt by their father's
actions, the fact that Henry is working for Sylvia's father and things got real very fast and...yep. Things are not that easy. Unfortunately.
I loved to see Sylvia learn to trust and it was also great to see her kids shake off their past and start to trust again. All in all this book is a sweet and moving addition to the series and I can't wait to read April's story. At least I think that hers will be next but we will see...


**~4.5 stars~**

The Clutter-Free Home: Making Room for Your Life by Kathi Lipp



 by 
 

When it comes to your home, peace is possible...

Longing for a place of peace from which you can love others well? The Clutter-Free Home is your room-by-room guide to decluttering, reclaiming, and celebrating every space of your home.

Let author Kathi Lipp (who once lived a life buried in clutter) walk you through each room of your house to create organizational zones that are not only functional and practical but create places of peace that reflect your personality.  Kathi will help you tackle the four-step process of dedicate, decide, declutter and “do-your-thing” to reveal the home you’ve always dreamed of, and then transform it into a haven that reflects who you
truly are meant to be.

If you’re also feeling overwhelmed by the care and upkeep of all the stuff under your feet or sense that your home is running you, instead of the other way around, come discover how to create a space that doesn’t have to be showroom perfect to be perfect for you and the people you love.



I mean, deep at heart we all know exactly what we have to do to get rid of all this stuff that is cluttering our home. Of course, I've already read several books about it as well and tried to get rid of everything but somehow....well.

This book doesn't have any big groundbreaking ideas either but somehow when I finally gave up procrastinating and started reading and doing something, I got into the right mood and it worked. I still have a lot of decluttering ahead of me but I like the author's approach to it, the concrete checklists of d's and I also like her definition of clutter. There's no number or amount of something given, there's no minimalistic approach, it's always just about the questions whether you really like an object, need it and use it. Basically.

I love books for example and I need long shelves of books to feel at home somewhere, so I wouldn't take kindly to the suggestion to get rid of them and keep but...<insert any number>. It doesn't make me a failure when it comes to decluttering if I still keep most of them as long as I make sure that these are books that still represent me. This is an approach that feels right and something I can work with.

It's always difficult to get rid of the clutter but step by step, one room after the other, I work my way through it. This book doesn't invent decluttering, it doesn't do it for me but it definitely helps with the process of deciding what to keep and how to proceed.

Excerpt

 “What do you want?” Knox says with as sneer as I ease in the football locker room. Cold eyes flick over my cheer skirt then move up and land on the hollow of my throat. It’s not cool enough at night for our sweater uniform so tonight my top is the red and white V-cut vest with CP embroidered on my chest.
Where’s Chance?”
He whips off his sweat-covered jersey along with the pads underneath. “I don’t keep tabs on my best friend for you. Get out—before I scare you.”
He’s scaring me already.
But I can’t stop looking at him.
His shoulders are broad and wide, his chest lightly dusted with sparse golden hair, tan from the sun, rippling with powerful muscles, leading down to a tapered and trim waist. He has a visible six-pack, and my gaze lingers briefly on a small tattoo on his hip, but I can’t tell what it is. He isn’t brawny or beefy-looking like one might expect from a guy blessed with his athletic prowess, but sculpted and molded and—
Dropping my gaze, I stare at the floor. I shouldn’t be ogling him. Chance is my maybe-boyfriend.
I hear male laughter from one of the rooms that branch off from the locker room, maybe the showers, and I deflate, guessing that’s where Chance is.
Glancing up, I intend to ask him to tell Chance I came by to congratulate him on his two touchdowns, but my voice is frozen. Knox has unlaced his grass-stained pants and is shucking them off. His legs are heavily muscled and taut, unlike the leaner build of Chance. His underwear are white and tight, cupping his hard ass, the outline of his crotch—
Like what you see, charity case? You can look, but you can’t touch.”
Anger soars, replacing my embarrassment. I know I'm just the scholarship girl at Camden, but why does he have to constantly remind me?
Don't worry about me touching anything. I don’t like ugly.” The words tumble out before I can stop them. I meant his superior attitude, not his face, but I see the moment when he freezes and takes it the wrong way.
He touches his face, tracing his scar while his jaw pops. “Get the hell out. Only players allowed in here.”
I pivot and go for the door, forcing myself not to run. “Asshole,” I mutter.
His laughter follows me.

Uncovering The Merchant's Secret by Elisabeth Hobbes #UncoveringTheMerchantsSecret





 *Synopsis*


A man with no past…
… could she hold the key to his future?
Shipwrecked merchant Jack Langdon wakes with no memory and steals a kiss from a beautiful stranger—widow, Blanche Tanet. As he recovers in her castle, passion flares between them. Jack’s fascinated by her independence and courage but, discovering his identity is not what it seems, Jack must first uncover the secrets of his own past, if they’re to have a future together…


 *Review*

Uncovering The Merchant's Secret tells Jack and Blanche's story, the story of two people who lost themselves somewhere along the way and are finding their way back, each in their own way. Jack didn't only lose his wife but when he meets Blanche, he has lost his memory and can't remember anything about his life before he met her. Blanche, well, she is a widow, not once but twice and life and circumstances or rather society being what it was in those times, she lost parts of herself while fighting to survive.

She is still fighting. Fighting for revenge, for her freedom and her dignity but things are getting tighter and it gets even more difficult for her to thrive in this world made for men. Oh, and she may also fight some softer feelings that don't make things less complicated, all things considered.
Fortunately, Jack is also slowly falling for his mysterious and strong-willed rescuer but without knowing more about his former life and those that he might left behind, he can't act on it. At least, well...

Pirates, merchants, spies and so much more, this book has it all and it will keep you on your toes. And if you are like me, you will probably be furious when once again men decide about a woman's fate because she has no rights  - even Blanche who is strong and independent. I loved her character, her loyalty and her sense of honor, her feminity paired with a core of steel and an independent mind. Jack was perfect for her, he respects her, he understands her - at least as much as he can, considering the fact that he is lacking some not that minor information and he is loyal to himself, his cause and his friends, including her.

Considering the fact that losing himself while almost losing his life helped him overcome his crippling sadness and find his love of life again, one might be tempted to think that shipwrecking or almost drowning could be seen as something positive....but  I wouldn't go that far. I do think though that finding Blanche under these circumstances allowed Jack to open his heart and to start living again. Preferably with a certain beautiful widow at his side!

COVER REVEAL - The Hookup Equation by Roxie Noir #TheHookupEquation #CoverReveal


Teach me everything.

The Hookup Equation, all-new hilarious standalone romantic comedy from Roxie Noir, is coming February 26th, and look at this dreamy cover! 
 







My whole life, I’ve been a good girl. I follow rules like nobody’s business. I obey guidelines like I was born to it. Show me a line, and I’ll toe it.
I’m even a twenty-two-year-old virgin. Good is my middle name.
And then, I break one tiny little rule. Miniscule. Inconsequential.
Next thing I know, I’m trapped with an incredibly handsome stranger. He’s got eyes like cut emeralds, biceps that makes my head spin, and a smile that has me rethinking all my life choices.
We escape a bar bathroom together. We go on an impromptu date. We share the hottest kiss I’ve ever had, one that leaves me panting for more. We promise to see each other again.
Turns out, we see each other the next morning.
In my calculus class.
Which he’s teaching.
My handsome, sexy date is Professor Loveless, and we’ll be seeing each other plenty. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday all semester.
There’s no choice but to call it off. We both have too much at stake: I could lose my scholarship, and he could lose his entire career.
But I can’t call off the way I feel.
I can’t call off the way he looks when he rolls up his sleeves and explains imaginary numbers.
I can’t call off the heated glances, or the way our hands touch when I hand in my homework, or the memory of his body pressing against mine that night.
I’m a virgin.
He’s my professor.
And if we give in, it could cost us both everything.
But I’m so tired of being a good girl.

Lilian and the Irresistible Duke by Virginia Heath #LilianAndTheIrressistibleDuke

Lilian and the Irresistible Duke by Virginia Heath

 

A reunion in Rome…

Sparks an affair to remember!

Part of Secrets of a Victorian Household. Responsible widow Lilian Fairclough is persuaded to travel to Rome for a hard-earned break and to let down her hair! She’s surprised to be reunited with passionate, cynical Italian duke Pietro Venturi. He reawakens her sensual side and intrigues her with glimpses of pain beneath his rakish surface. Enticed into a secret and temporary affair, what will happen once she returns home? 
 

 

Last year I was in Rome and I loved it because it is a fascinating city but when I read Lilian and the Irresistible Duke, I caught myself wishing for someone like Lilian at my side if I ever go there again. Her open mind, her fascination and her love of art and culture make everything seem even more special than it already is.

I could understand Pietro so well when he fell for Lilian, she was such a refreshing character. She was mature and intelligent, well educated and interested in almost everything but despite all that and despite the life she led with all its responsibilities and loss, she had a certain naivete, a certain ability to enjoy Rome and its treasures that I felt drawn in as well by her personality and her love of life and art. 


Pietro, whose former short-lived marriage had been a nightmare, fights hard but somehow his certain ...interest...that was safe and familiar and meaningless in the long run, turns into something more. Much more. With time running out and the two of them living so far apart, things seem rather desperate and hopeless.
A beautiful story full of love and second chances. I really loved reading this book.

💓💓💓💓💓

RELEASE BLITZ - The Third Best Thing by Maya Hughes #TheThirdBest Thing #ReleaseBliltz





IT IS FINALLY HERE!


This is Berk and Jules' story and I loved it!


  by 

Dear Letter Girl, I need to see you. When can we meet?

Her response never came. My secret pen pal with a dirty mind has ghosted me. I've roped Jules, my sweet as pie next door neighbor, to help me track her down.
There's only one problem--I'm falling for her. The tortoise shell glasses, out of this world curves and delicious treats are making the search for The Letter Girl even harder. 
My notes were supposed to be a one time thing. A little too much wine and naughty thoughts on a winter's night. I never thought Berk would write back. I wanted to tell him it was me, but the fear of rejection kept my lips sealed.
Now he’s enlisted my help to track down The Letter Girl and our search has him hot on my, ahem, her trail.
She's the girl next door.
He's my secret pen pal.
Truth is on a collision course with their hearts and it’s only a matter of time before one of them gets wrecked...



Berk and Jules are absolutely great together! I really really loved them! It was just right, they fit perfectly! The first and the second book in this series were already great and I loved them but somehow this story is even sweeter and more perfect. 
Interesting, multi-layered characters that intrigued me and captured my heart from the first page on and an equally captivating story that kept me glued to my reader. 

I loved to see how Berk fell for Jules, hook, line and..oh, well, rather cookie, doughnut and Jules, simply Jules. You could feel his love grow and vice versa. She was already crushing on him but those feelings became more intense and more real over the course of the events. I also liked to see him help Jules when her family turned up (geez, with a family like that, you don't need any enemies, trust me!!) and when we learned more about him and his story....oh my...
These two absolutely lovable and amazing people who find each other and who fall in love, deeply and irrevocably - who wouldn't love this book???

A Favor for a Favor (All In, #2) by Helena Hunting






From the New York Times bestselling author of Pucked and A Lie for a Lie, a new stand-alone romance about trading favors, battling wills, and winning love.

When I joined Seattle’s NHL expansion team, I thought it was the start of something great. But nothing ever goes the way you expect. Take my introduction to my new neighbor. She came rolling in on the hot mess express at midnight, making a racket while she tried to get into my team captain’s apartment. Did I mention that he’s married to a woman who definitely was not her?

Imagine my surprise when I end up with an injury that has me out of the game for weeks, and she’s the one to offer to help me. I should probably add that she’s not the captain’s mistress. She’s his sexy, pastel-haired younger sister.

So we come up with an arrangement: she rehabs me so that I can get back on the ice sooner, and she can add a professional athlete that isn’t her brother to her client list. Seems simple enough. As long as I can keep my hands to myself and my hormones in check.


Oh, my goodness, this book was simply amazing! I loved that even though we meet some of the characters from A Lie for a Lie again, this book is completely different! Bishop and  Stevie are great together and I loved their chemistry and the way they actually cared for each other. An interesting and captivating story and great characters all wrapped up in one brilliantly written bundle - this is definitely a story that I'll reread more than once.

I must add that I read the ebook and listened to the audiobook as well. The audiobook was also really well done with great narrators and overall an absolute pleasure to listen to. No matter which way you want to enjoy this book, reading or listening to it, you can't go wrong!

Unexpectedly Yours by Rebecca Shea #UnexpectedlyYours






*Synopsis*
One night of unbridled passion.

It was the only thing Andrew McPherson and Grace Morgan could afford.

Intense.
Sexy.
Unforgettable.

They promised they would never see each other again, but fate had other plans.
Andrew’s entire life has been spent working toward one goal—to own the top advertising and public relations company in the world. He’s driven, ruthless when it comes to business, never letting anything stand in his way…until Grace.

Grace has worked hard to build her advertising career. She’s fiercely talented and dedicated to her clients. Grace has no interest in getting involved with a man when she knows her focus should be on her career and paying off her mounting debt.

Andrew knows better than to get involved with a woman who is completely off limits, but he never backs down from what he wants, and he won’t stop until Grace is his…only this might cost him more than he’s willing to give.



This book is sweet and cute and basically an ode to love, so if you need lots of drama and angst...well, you won't find that in here. If you like some insta-love topped with rationally acting, absolutely likable characters, yep, this one is yours.

I really enjoyed reading this book despite its rather...unexcited...story of love and the pursuit of happiness, love, and friendship. Of course, despite some minor bumps, everything just seems to fall into place. Money is no issue for our hero and he is determined to share everything, his life, his love, his flat and his money with a woman he just met the night before.
Grace is a very charming and down to earth woman who actually needs some convincing. Even though she quickly falls in love with him as well, she stays true to herself and her own values. Drew though, he throws caution to the winds and dives head first into this relationship even going as far as steamrolling Grace when it comes to their dates or spending time (and nights) at his place. Very obviously his negotiating skills are top-notch because she doesn't stand a chance...
Falling for Grace, mending bridges with his estranged brother while relocating and giving up his own life for his new love is all one big parcel. And even though not all is just rainbows and unicorns, on the whole, everything is really easy and smooth sailing for these two. To quote Grace: "True love conquers all the crap life hands us." And conquer they do.If you don't like insta-love and couples that are very obviously made for each other...alright, if that's the case, you won't like this story. If you need something for a cozy afternoon, leaving all those angsty stories behind while swooning a bit and simply feeling well, this book is perfect. From the first page on, this is a sweet feel-good story that will leave you with this nice feeling of content and a stupid smile on your face. You need cute? Read it!

Surgebound (Storm Rising Saga, #1) by Celeste Griffith and Ramona Carter #Surgebound



by 


 *Synopsis*

They disappeared, and her power is rising. Noa is enjoying one last summer in her beachside hometown before leaving for college when a series of strange occurrences forces her to question everything she thinks she knows about herself, her family, and her future.

When her best friend instantly recovers from a near-fatal accident, the long-cold investigation into her family's disappearance is reopened, and a mysteriously alluring new family comes to town, Noa's surging power threatens to consume her. When a captivating stranger begins pursuing Noa, she wonders if his feelings are real – or stem from something potentially more dangerous. As Noa struggles to untangle the increasingly strange occurrences around her and control her rising power, she realizes that her safety – and the safety of those she loves – may be in more danger than she ever imagined.

Secrets don't stay submerged forever.



 *Review*
 
On the whole, I enjoyed reading this debut novel that left me waiting impatiently for the next book in this series. It took me some time to get into it, though once I was hooked, I didn't put the book down till the end.

I liked the hero and the heroine but for a long time, I wasn't completely sure who the male main character was. Alright, it was rather obvious on the one hand but on the other hand, it didn't really fit. I would have loved some more chemistry and, all circumstances considered, I would have loved to know deep down that these two belong together because they just click and not because of someone else's manipulations.

In some parts, the story seemed a bit rushed and also a bit confusing and sometimes I just wanted to kick our heroine a bit for not realizing...well...things.
Despite that, this fast-paced and action-packed book was a great read and I can't wait to read more about Noa and her friends!

The Girl Who Cried Werewolf (Of Fates & Fables Book 1) by Heather Hildenbrand and Bam Shepherd #TheGirlWhoCriedWerewolf

#
by 
Heather Hildenbrand and Bam Shepherd



 Book Boyfriends are real. Pass it on.

Professional book blogger Romy Cartelli may have cried werewolf once or twice. Hell, she’s even cried vampire, warlock, and dragon their fair share of times—because, as every dedicated reader knows, one book boyfriend is never enough.

And her followers love it…until they don’t.

Sure, Romy is being stalked by a sexy werewolf, but she’s got bigger issues to deal with. Like the fact that he might be a murderer. Or worse yet, that she got drunk and told all of her followers that werewolves actually exist. Then she fails to prove it.

Cue the trolling and the haters.

Now Romy’s out to prove she’s not crazy and win back her followers. But as she sets out to clear her name, she’ll discover there are bigger dangers awaiting her than internet infamy.



This book had it all, it made me laugh, and groan, roll my eyes, rant and grouch....while keeping me glued to my reader till the end. And you know what? When you come to the end and realize that this isn't the end but en end "for now" and that you really really need the next book RIGHT NOW...you know that you've read a great book!

I loved the characters despite the fact that Romy's absolute dedication to her job aka her blog made me a bit mad because I told her about a thousand times that this or that was really a bad idea or that she definitely shouldn't do whatever she was doing at that time and ... yep, you get the gist. Right, I really loved those two though and I absolutely loved the chemistry between Kash and Romy.
Kash has a hard time protecting Romy though considering the fact that she tends to make these bad decisions and, well, we left her in a pretty shitty situation which kind of pr oves my point, right? This girl did cost me a lot of nerves - but I enjoyed every single minute of it!

And now - did I mention that I NEED the next book? Right NOW?!
