Review: The Plan by Katie Ashley

The Plan (1)**NEW RELEASE** – THE PLAN by Katie Ashley – Now LIVE!
BLURB: 

For Jenny O’Malley, the plan was supposed to be easy. Become the surrogate for her friends, Connor and Jeff, deliver their healthy baby, and earn some money towards her student loans. But as the saying goes, the best-laid plans often go awry. Especially when you’re looking at the prospect of not getting laid for a long, long time.

With T-Minus two weeks to insemination, Jenny decides to take her friend, Casey’s, suggestion to have one wild fling before she’s saddled with heartburn and stretchmarks. When a tall, dark and handsome man swaggers into the bar where she works in skin-tight jeans, cowboy boots, and a Stetson, Jenny knows he is the one. After a scorching night of banging boots until dawn, Jenny is a little sad to see her Cowboy in Shining Armor leave.

When he reenters her life a few weeks later, she never could have imagined a positive sign could be such a negative.

 

Review:

Jenny had a plan.  It was supposed to be easy.  Become a surrogate for two very deserving people and earn money toward college.  What she doesn’t plan on is the sexy cowboy who is supposed to be just a one night stand before she becomes pregnant.  When that one night stand pops back up at the more inopportune time what’s a pregnant girl to do?
Jenny and Brett’s story was sweet.  I enjoyed this shorter story.  It had a great blend of romance and twists with just a dash of humor.  Anyone who has dreamed of a cowboy walking into their life for just a while will enjoy this story.  Brett and Jenny’s love story moves quickly but it manages to keep the realistic and natural feel of a slow moving love story.  Add in a pregnancy and you get some great twists.  If you are looking for a quick read with a great story look no further.

Happy Release Day for Iron Princess by Meghan March

 

 

 

 

He’s a mystery. An enigma.

His very identity is a secret buried beneath layers of deception.

He’s also an addiction I can’t shake. An attraction I can’t fight.

And then I found out exactly who he is—a man more dangerous than the devil himself.

Now I need him in order to save everything that matters to me.

I have to pull back. Protect myself from the danger that haunts his every step.

Which would be easy . . . if I could stop myself from falling in love with him.

Review: Blood Type by K.A Linde

Happy Tuesday!  There are a lot of really great releases coming out today.  The one I was lucky enough to get my hands on was Blood Type by K.A Linde.  This is her first swing at a paranormal romance.  K.A Linde definitely hit a homerun with this one.  Blood Type is unique, enthralling and addictive.  This is the first book in this series and I am already salivating for the next installment.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

35263206Book Blurb:

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.

 

Review:

Reyna is desperate.  She knows that continuing to stay with her brothers is just hindering their lives.  She is unable to get a job without an education and she can’t get an education because she is too poor.  This is why she has decided to work for Visage.  In a world where vampires are real and becoming a permanent blood provider is a very lucrative job, Reyna sees no other option than to become one.  What she doesn’t count on is being paired permanently to Beckham, a VP at Visage.  Their attraction is complex but can they ever really feel for one another?  When one is food and the other her employer what future can their be?

I adored this book.  I was hooked from the first chapter.  Reyna and Beckham are such complicated characters.  They come from different sides of the tracks and can’t see how they would ever be truly attracted to one another.  Add in the paranormal element of vampires and what a world would look like if they had all the power and money.  This book is truly a complex story, not just a paranormal romance.  K.A Linde has such a way of building a world that is relatable and realistic.  The reader can really feel themselves being placed there.  Blood Type is one of the best paranormal romances that I have read in quite a while.  I’ve never felt the levels in a paranormal story the way K.A Linde has written Blood Type.  You get action, paranormal, social commentary and of course, romance.  This may be K.A Linde’s first paranormal romance but it sure doesn’t feel that way.  I can’t wait to get my greedy hands on the next book.  This is a guaranteed hit for all paranormal romance fans!

Who knew things could get even darker and dirtier in New Orleans? New York Times bestselling author Meghan March introduces the Savage Prince of the city, the man you never want to meet.

I do what I want and who I want. I don’t follow anyone’s rules—even my own.

Savage Prince is book one of the Savage Trilogy, set in the same world as Ruthless King, however you do not need to read the Mount Trilogy to devour this scandalously hot new story.

Review:

Temperance is prim and proper.  She wasn’t always like that but that is her past.  When she agrees to meet a prospective client at an establishment she’s never been she is introduced to a new world.  A world she didn’t know she wanted.  When she meets him her body is set aflame.  She craves him and what he can do to her body.  Everyone warns her against him, but like a moth drawn to a flame she can’t help herself.  Pretend danger is one thing but when real danger comes to her door will she still run or will she run to the one person who can destroy her world?

OMG!  Meghan March is the queen of sexy romance.  She taps into the side of everyone’s psyche that craves danger and sex.  Temperance’s story shows the reader how the criminal underworld can be sexy.  How the right man can be so very wrong.  The sexy times between her and her mystery man are so steamy they fog your kindle.  I read this in one sitting.  I couldn’t help myself.  I wanted more and needed more.  I can’t wait for Iron Princess.  This book will have you craving more.  This book does end in a bit of a cliff hanger but I know Meghan March has even more coming.

Review: Embracing Her Heart by Melissa Foster

Today we have the blog tour for Melissa Foster’s Embracing Her Heart! Check out this fantastic new contemporary romance and be sure to grab your copy today!

Title: EMBRACING HER HEART

Author: Melissa Foster

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Embracing Her Heart:

Welcome to Oak Falls, Virginia, home to horse farms, midnight rodeos, bookstores, coffee shops, and quaint restaurants where you’re greeted like family and treated like treasured guests. Buckle up for a wild ride. Like any Southern girls worth their salt, the sweet-talking, sharp-tongued Montgomery sisters can take men to their knees with one seductive glance or a single sugarcoated sentence.

In EMBRACING HER HEART…
Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again-ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.

Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape.

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again-and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…

~
The Bradens & Montgomerys are part of Melissa’s Love in Bloom big-family romance collection featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy contemporary romance and women’s fiction.. All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so dive right into this fun, sexy romance.

PLEASE NOTE: Future books in the original Montgomery series are crossing over to the Bradens at Pleasant Hill, and for this reason I have combined the series into THE BRADENS & MONTGOMERYS (Pleasant Hill – Oak Falls).

THE BRADENS & MONTGOMERYS (Pleasant Hill – Oak Falls). Order of future books is subject to change.
Embracing Her Heart
Anything For Love
Trails of Love
Our Wicked Hearts
Searching for Love
Wild Crazy Hearts
Summer of Love
Hot For Love
Sweet Sexy Hearts
Winter of Love
Claiming Her Heart

Review:

It’s only a short trip for Grace.  She was only home for three weeks to refocus and teach a playwriting class.  What she doesn’t expect to find is the one man who has always captured her heart.  Reed didn’t expect to see Grace when he is interrupted working on Grace’s parent’s deck.  It is undeniable that the sparks they once had are still there.  When they finally admit to being together and decide to make the most of Grace’s time at home.  When the time finally comes will Reed and Grace finally make a go of it or will their love finally be severed?

This was a great love story.  For a fan of romance that is saying something.  Reading romance you expect a love story.  But, a great love story leaves an impression and gives you a hangover because you can still feel their love.  This is one of those books.  Reed and Grace are such complicated characters.  The misunderstandings of youth are finally hashed out in this great second chance love.  I felt like I was part of their second chance.  It wasn’t just their love story though, their friends and family were fantastic.  I can’t wait to see more of them in the books to come.  As for Reed and Grace’s love I will be feeling this story for days to come.  Melissa Foster does it again.  Her talent overflows the pages and won’t let the reader go until the last page is turned.

Janey Martin, a California college student and aspiring journalist is tired of writing puff pieces about her university men’s sports teams. She wants to be taken seriously as a journalist and as a woman. With riots at their doorstep, her wealthy father sends Janey to the Sorbonne in Paris to finish her college education away from the chaos.

Janey is reluctant to leave the Big Story that is Vietnam, but vows to prove herself. Much to her dismay, her first assignment is to interview the hotshot star forward of a local soccer team. Janey is sure Adrien Rousseau is going to be like every other playboy jock she’s ever dealt with, but quickly learns there is much more to Adrien than meets the eye.

The mysterious, sexy footballer just might be the biggest story of Janey’s life.

Excerpt:

I reached over and pushed ‘stop’ on Janey’s tape recorder and turned to her. “Saturday then?”

She coughed in surprise. “What happens Saturday?”

“We conclude the interview. You need to see a football match firsthand or your article is going to sound like a bunch of amateurish gibberish. You want to be taken seriously?”

She pressed her lips together for a moment. “Yes.”

“So do I. Saturday at noon at Stade Jean-Marc. We’ll finish the interview after.”

“Antoine wants the article in two days,” she said.

“Tell Antoine I said to wait.”

She took another long pull from the lemonade, her pride not letting her say yes to me so quickly.

“Saturday then,” she said. “For the article.”

“Right,” I said, holding her gaze. “For the article.”

She finished off the lemonade and set the glass down. “Thank you very much, Sophie. It was just what I needed.” She gathered her belongings and turned to me. “See you.”

“You have a drop of lemonade on your chin,” I said.

“Where?” Her hand flew to her mouth. “No, I don’t…”

I held out the cocktail napkin with my sketch of her, my brow raised.

Janey dropped her hand from her dry chin, fuming. I expected her to flounce away. But she snatched the napkin out of my hand, dropped it into her bag, and coolly walked away.

I wasn’t in love with her, but in that moment, I knew someday I would be.

Happy Release day to Love Again by Kelly Elliot

 

 

Jonathon Turner is going to be the death of me.

Maybe not the death of me…but my panties for sure! They seem to disintegrate the moment he touches me. Looks at me. Smiles at me. Talks to me.

It’s more than physical. He’s breaking through an impenetrable wall.

There’s a problem though-he’s younger than me.

Six. Years. Younger.

Let’s not forget he’s also one of my brother’s best friends.

Oh, the other problem I forgot to mention…

I never wanted to fall in love again.

But you know what they say….never say never.

Excerpt:

“Do y’all know what you want to eat or should I give you a few minutes?”

When the waitress handed me the sample of wine, I downed it. She tried to hide her chuckle but failed. “Yep, it’s good. Now pour me a big glass.”

“I think we need a few minutes, Evie,” Jonathon said.

“Sure! No problem. I’ll leave you lovebirds alone.”

I choked on the wine as Evie spun walked to another table. Setting the glass down, I glared at Jonathon. “What in the hell was that?”

He shrugged. “Evie being hopeful, that’s all.”

“Hopeful of what?”

With a knock-my-panties-right-off-of-me smile, he replied, “Us.”

Leaning closer, I whispered, “You say that like we’re an item.”

He poured a glass of wine and held it up. “I hope by the end of dinner we are.”

My eyes closed. “You drive me insane, Turner.”

With a grunt, he put the wine glass down. “No, you drive me insane. It was your flirty little text that had me in my hotel room with my hand around my cock.”

A lady behind us cleared her throat.

“Shut up!” I whispered loudly.

Frustration bubbled inside every time I looked at him. Was sexual frustration what got him in that fight? A small part of me hoped it had been.

“You told your family about me?” I asked, changing the subject.

Jonathon half shrugged. “I might have mentioned you at a family dinner.”

“What did you say?”

A mischievous smile played across his face. “Well, I didn’t tell them I got caught fucking one of my clients.”

My stomach dropped. “Stop being crass,” I said before adding in a lower voice, “Save that shit for the bedroom.”

His brows rose. “You like the dirty talk, do you?”

It was my turn to shrug. “I don’t know. I’ve never experienced a man talking dirty to me in bed before.”

“Is that a challenge, Waylynn?”

Taking a sip of my wine, I replied, “Do you want it to be?”

He leaned forward, his eyes full of hope. “Do you want it to be? I think you already know how much I want you.”

My teeth dug into my lip as I let the corner of my mouth rise into a slight smile. “I mean, it would be a shame for me to have gone panty-less for nothing.”

Jonathon hooked my chair with his foot and pulled me closer. When his hand touched my leg, I let out a gasp. “A little jumpy there, babe?”

“Don’t call me babe.” I looked around the restaurant. Not a single person was looking in our direction. The long black tablecloth was hiding the fact that Jonathon’s fingers were moving up the inside of my thigh.

“Spread your legs open…babe.”
