Review: Royally Yours by Emma Chase

Today I get to bring to you a great novel by the phenomenal Emma Chase.  This is the fourth book in her Royally series.  Every dynasty has a beginning and this is Lenora and Edwards story.  This was a really great book.  It has a lot of emotion that will definitely bring tears to your eyes.  For my full review, keep reading after the book blurb.  Happy Book Birthday to Royally Yours!

39801783Book Blurb:

Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco.

It’s a big deal.

When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning.

What she isn’t… is married.

It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want.

Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty.

Even Queens. Especially them.

**

Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.

And a sacred promise keeps him there.

To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure.

**

Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever.

Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story.

This is theirs.

Review:

Princess Lenora has been raised to be the first Queen of Wessco.  But, when it is her turn to take the reigns all her advisors and parliament want is her to get married.  Edward gave up on court life.  He has no drive to be anything but an adventurer.  That is until his brother asks him to come home to take back over.  His brother also has another request…marry the queen.  Lenora and Edward are like oil and water.  Until they finally give each other a chance.  Can a true love story come from an arranged marriage or will Edward flee the life that he desperately hates?

I loved this book.  This is the first in the series that I have read and now I really want to go back and read all the previous books.  This is technically the prequel that starts the family.  Lenora and Edwards love story, though non-traditional, becomes quite epic.  Emma Chase was able to bring all of the heart-wrenching emotions into this book.  You will laugh, cry and swoon before you finish the last chapter.  this is a story that sucks you in and won’t let you go.  I still have a book hang over from this epic love story.  If you are like me and haven’t picked up this series yet, then run out and pick up this fantastically written series that will leave you swooning.

 

Review: Flirting with Forever by Kendall Ryan

I’ve waited years for the perfect girl, yet she was right in front of me all along.

My best friend, Natalie, has been by my side through everything. Leaning on my shoulder, borrowing my sweatshirts…and making my pants too tight when she flashes me that sassy smile that drives me crazy.

But she has no idea about that last part. She doesn’t have a clue I’ve felt this way about her for years.

Until one night after too many cocktails, we fall into bed together.

I’m flirting with my forever…she just doesn’t know it yet.

This book is a sexy, slow-burning best-friends-to-lovers romance with a guaranteed HEA and no cheating. Dive in, and get ready to melt for Cam!

Review:

Cam in a moment of solidarity makes a stupid pact with his best friend, Jack.  Only with this pact he finally sees his other best friend for what she is, a beautiful woman that he can’t stop fantasizing about.  Natalie, realizes she wants to not be lonely anymore.  But, when Jack sets her up with one of his bartenders she can’t keep her eyes off of Cam.  As Cam and Natalie finally begin to realize they both want more than just friends there is that pact and their friendship on the line.  Can they take the jump or will they continue to watch the other from the sidelines?

This was a great sexy read.  The slow burn of Cam and Natalie’s love story really made it feel realistic and not just another story with steamy sex scenes.  I love a good friends to lovers story.  This felt so much more though.  Cam and Natalie felt like this had been building up to this moment for such a long time they just couldn’t see it.  Kendall Ryan does a phenomenal job in creating a story and characters that you truly enjoy and can’t put down until they finally get their happily ever after.  If you are looking for the next good romance you need to pick this one up.  You won’t regret it for a moment.

Review: Timid by Devney Perry

 

Willa Doon has always been shy. Her quiet demeanor was something she’s always embraced. That is, until Jackson Page moves to town. The one man she desperately wants to take notice struggles to remember her name.

Year after year, Willa stands by, watching as the bartender slash playboy drowns his demons in beer and sex. Then one night, he shows up at her door, suddenly aware that the girl he’s seen around Lark Cove is now a beautiful woman.

Except what he doesn’t remember is that this visit isn’t his first. They spent a night together once before. A night he’s forgotten, thanks to a bottle of tequila.

A night that crushed a timid girl’s heart, and set a broken man on the path to heal them both.

Review:

Willa Doon has swooned over Jackson Page from the moment she saw him 9 years ago.  She has never been bold and Jackson has always looked through her.  But, when one night changes everything Willa has so much hope.  Only to be dashed by Jackson the next day.  Jackson can’t believe he’s never truly noticed Willa until he saw Thea’s drawing of her.  He knows she has been haunting his dreams and he needs to know her.  What he doesn’t expect is that Willa has given up on him and wants nothing to do with him.  Jackson will have to work for her heart.  When he finally gets it will he break it because of fear or will he embrace what could be?

Oh my goodness!  This book was phenomenal.  I couldn’t put it down.  It will make you swoon and completely fall in love with Willa and Jackson’s love story.  It truly is an epic one.  Willa really comes into her own.  She is a very timid and shy character.  Though the depths that she has is shown when she finally fights for what she wants.  Jackson is no longer the playboy.  He is so much more.  These two are a love story that anyone would give to have.  It feels real and true.  With this also comes great side characters.  We get to have Hazel, Thea, Logan and Charlie back.  We also get to meet Willa’s parents who are definitely people anyone would want to have in their lives.  Devney Perry does it again.  She manages to leave you speechless with the power of the emotions she writes.  I can’t wait for the next book in this series.  Lark Cove has easily become one of my favorite contemporary romance series.  If you need to fall in love, pick up this series.  You will be swooning and begging for more.

Excerpt:

I scooched my chair in toward the table, trying to put a little more space between Jackson and me, but he wasn’t having it.

He put both hands on the back of my chair, then leaned in close. “Hi, Willa.”

“Uh . . . hi.” I shivered at the heat from his chest on my bare shoulders.

Why was he standing so close? My parents were right there. Our table was one of four tall, square ones in the center of the room and there was plenty of space between tables.

Plenty. P-L-E-N-T-Y.

But was Jackson using any of that plentiful space?

No sirree. He stayed pressed against the back of my chair, like there were only three inches of usable space behind him, not three feet.

My skin prickled he was so close. I tried to nudge my chair forward again but it barely moved. Sweat beaded on my temples and I pulled in a shaking breath.

Jackson’s woodsy, rich scent was everywhere. It overpowered the stale beer, pizza and peanuts, and I inhaled a deep breath, unable to resist.

Sexy Hot Forest. That’s what they’d call his cologne.

Review: Kiss the Girl by Tara Sivec

I am so happy to bring to you the final book in the Naughty Princess Club series.  Ariel’s story is everything we wanted it to be.  It is laugh out loud funny.  Incredibly witty dialogue and characters you will never forget will make this one book you won’t want to put down.  For my full review, keep reading after the book blurb.  I guarantee if you haven’t picked up this series yet, you will want to do that immediately.

38492048Book Blurb:

A struggling antiques collector finds herself falling in love with a millionaire playboy; but can she ever be a part of his world?

Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.

While her friends have broken free of their insecurities, Ariel Waters is struggling to come out of her shell. Her ex-husband took away her voice and her self-confidence, and Ariel is drowning under a sea of debt to afford the alimony she has to pay him. She refuses to ever fall for a man’s charms again, and is determined to make her own way.

When her house and her beloved antiques are taken by the bank after too many missed payments, Ariel finds herself adrift until the infuriatingly charming Eric Sailor comes to her rescue. Although she can’t stand the millionaire playboy, Eric’s kindness and unconditional support reveal hidden depths and a love that Ariel never imagined she could find.

But there are outside influences who will stop at nothing to keep them apart; can Ariel and Eric weather the storm and find a way to be together?

Review:

Ariel’s life is crumbling down around her.  The one person there to help pick up the pieces is the most annoyingly handsome man she’s ever met.  Ariel doesn’t ever want to rely on a man again.  All Eric wants to do is help her get back on her feet and show her that all men aren’t like the one that destroyed her self confidence.  Ariel fights her feelings tooth and nail but those dimples and his hairless cat wears her down.  Will Ariel finally become the naughty princess that she’s always been or will her fear hold her down for good?

I LOVED THIS BOOK!  Ariel was always my favorite character in this series.  Her book did not disappoint.  Ariel and Eric are the perfect duo.  She is so rough around the edges and though you think at first Eric is just a shallow guy but he is so much more.  The banter between the two of them is priceless.  It is truly some of the best work by Tara Sivec.  She is the queen of laugh out loud dialogue that only a few people would actually say out loud.  Ariel reminds me of the characters in her Chocolate Lovers series.  She doesn’t hold anything back.  In the end, Ariel is so much more than just the bawdy, no-holds bar chick.  She has a heart…though if she were here she’d definitely stab me in the throat for saying that.  Overall, I will miss this series terribly.  I can’t wait to see what Tara Sivec comes up with next.

Review: When Light Leads to You by C.S Ellis

Today C.R. Ellis is here today to share her blog tour for WHEN LIGHT LEADS TO YOU! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

Title: WHEN LIGHT LEADS TO YOU

Author: C.R. Ellis

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About WHEN LIGHT LEADS TO YOU

JASMINE
Once upon a time, there was a girl who had a crush on a boy. Eventually, they fell in love. They lived happily ever after.

Except they didn’t. Not even close.
I’m the girl, but that’s not my story.

Once upon a time, I fell for a boy, but we didn’t have a happily ever after. In fact, we crashed and burned. Which turned out to be for the best because it forced me to grow up and realize the only wedding bells in my future are the ones I orchestrate for clients.

For six years I’ve been perfectly content with meaningless, short-lived flings and running from anything that resembles a real relationship.

That boy?
He’s my best friend’s brother, and he’s no longer the boy I fell for—he’s a man I can’t stand.

Oh, and he’s also my new neighbor.

DEAN
Seemingly overnight, Jasmine Winters went from being my sister’s best friend to being the girl I couldn’t get enough of. But like most good things, it didn’t last.

Things fell apart so suddenly, I’m able to convince myself that summer never happened. At least, I was, until the only distance between us is a hallway instead of a time zone.

Six years ago, I let Jasmine slip through my fingers without an explanation because I was convinced we’d be better off apart. But now that we’re neighbors, our unspoken vow of apathy has unwittingly been shattered. Our exchanges consist of trading insults and icy stare downs. But in-between, I catch glimpses of the way she used to look at me, glimpses of the girl I fell for years ago.

Things are different now, though. This time… I won’t let her walk away without giving me answers.

When Light Leads to You is the second full-length novel of the Forget Me Knot series, but can be read as a standalone. **Due to strong language and the sexy times between these two, this book is recommended to readers ages 18 and up.**

Review:

Jasmine’s worst nightmare is currently living across the hall from her.  The one man who single-handedly created the woman she is lives there.  He also happens to be her best friend’s brother.  With Dean back in town she can’t avoid all contact with him.  Everything she does seems to pull him closer instead of apart.  When Jasmine and Dean finally confront their past will they be able to finally see a future together or will their pasts come back to destroy everything they have?

I thought I loved Jade and Emmett when I read Why the Stars chase the Sun, Jasmine and Dean have them beat hands down.  They are the epitome of sexual tension.  They fight their attraction tooth and nail.  When they finally succumb to their passion it will literally make your kindle steam up.  Their history and misconceived slights caused so much pain and that is felt through out the book.  What is spectacular is how they learn to get around it.  This book just like the previous one kept me glued to each page until the end.  The push and pull will have the reader staying up late to find out if they really do get their happily ever after.

Review: Why Stars Chase the Sun by C.R Ellis

Today C.R. Ellis is here today to share her new romance WHY STARS CHASE THE SUN! Check it out and be sure to get your copy today!

Title: Why Stars Chase the Sun

Author: C.R. Ellis

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Why Stars Chase the Sun:

JADE

Twenty-four hours.

A no-strings-attached adventure with the most gorgeous man I’ve ever seen—this was my alcohol-slash-lust-fueled proposal, and given before I could consider the potential ramifications. While his looks alone are enough to make a girl swoon, it’s the rest of him—a perfect balance of mysterious, sweet, and effortlessly charming—that draws me in. Through his cryptic comments and half-answers, he’s quickly become an enigma I’m determined to solve.

 

One way or another, this adventure promises to snap the stagnant, lackluster pattern my love life has been locked in lately.

Is it naïve and a little reckless to think this won’t blow up in my face? Probably.

But the bigger question is the only one I need to answer…

Is the chance to soar among the stars worth the risk of being burned when the sun eventually rises?

 

EMMETT

Love is a mistake I won’t make again.

My rules are simple. Keep things surface-deep. Don’t make plans. And never, ever get attached.

One look at her is all it takes for me to break my first rule.

One conversation with her is all it takes for me to question everything.

Which means accepting her proposal is bound to be a mistake.

She has no idea who I am or what kind of demons I live with, so I tell myself there’s no harm in spending one day with her. But the more I lose myself in her, the more she brings me out of the darkness and into her light, the harder it’ll be to let her go.

When reality comes crashing down on us in the worst way possible, I have to decide between walking away…or risking everything for the woman who breaks all of my rules.

Review:

Jade has had her heart broken before.  As a wedding planner she is responsible for making other people’s happily ever afters come true.  She doesn’t believe this will ever happen to her.  That is until she meets Emmett.  By accidentally hitting him with a stick she threw for her dog she finds herself intensely attracted to him.  When they find each other at a bar later, she doesn’t expect him to accept the drunken proposal of hers.  What happens when the one day proposal becomes more?  Can two broken souls heal each other or will their reality crush them?

Jade and Emmett were addictive.  Their attraction was palpable.  Though their attraction came first and foremost it was definitely their dialogue and banter that helped to make this such a dynamic book.  As the pages turned their characters became more and more complex.  This added such a great dimension to the story.  Along with them were their family and friends.  Jasmine, Dean and Harrison really helped the story by bringing both drama and comedy.  The added suspense of Emmett’s family’s plotting really made this book one addicting read that I couldn’t put down.  I can’t wait for Jas and Dean’s story.
