Lies_Throne_LiveBanner

Happy Release Day!  Today I get to bring to you the prequel of Legacy of Lies by Tara Leigh.  This is a dynamic novella that introduces you to love, hurt, pain and betrayal of the life changing kind.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

Lies_ThroneTaraLeigh2018.9-ebooksm.jpgBook Blurb:

I was called a prodigal son.
A scion of Midas.
I believed it. Why wouldn’t I?
Everything my father touched turned to gold.
The proof was all around me.
Luxury cars.
Elite schools.
A billion-dollar business.
Even my girlfriend, a Park Avenue Princess.
I reigned from a throne of lies.
My fall from grace . . . wasn’t graceful at all.

Review:

Jolie wasn’t looking forward to being a debutante. Let alone being set up with her father’s business partner’s son.  She hadn’t seen him in years and truly wasn’t looking forward to it.  She just had to keep in mind that this was just a stepping stone for her.  When she finally does see Tripp again she can’t fight how drawn to him she is.  Tripp is hoping some of these debutantes will be easy after he does his duty for his dad.  What he doesn’t expect is seeing Jolie and knowing that she is the only debutante he wants to be around.  As they are drawn closer by a love that feels timeless, the world around them begins to crumble.  When all is lost can the Manhattan princess and Wallstreet heir be able to stay together?

This was such a thrilling beginning.  I was extremely lucky that I was able to have the next book ready.  Jolie and Tripp have the beginnings of an epic Romeo and Juliet love story.  A story filled with hope, love and tragedy.  In just this short novella, you can already tell how complex these two characters are.  They are so much more than the money their families have.  Tara Leigh is fantastic when it comes to reeling in a reader and getting them to care about the characters and how the story effects them.  This truly is only the beginning and when I get to share the rest, I know you will be panting to pick the continuation up.  Throne of Lies is just the start of a story you will find yourself addicted to.

Review: Strong by Kylie Scott

 

 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kylie Scott comes a new story in her Stage Dive series…

When the girl of your dreams is kind of a nightmare.

As head of security to Stage Dive, one of the biggest rock bands in the world, Sam Knowles has plenty of experience dealing with trouble. But spoilt brat Martha Nicholson just might be the worst thing he’s ever encountered. The beautiful troublemaker claims to have reformed, but Sam knows better than to think with what’s in his pants. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy to make his heart fall into line.

Martha’s had her sights on the seriously built bodyguard for years. Quiet and conservative, he’s not even remotely her type. So why the hell can’t she get him out of her mind? There’s more to her than the Louboutin wearing party-girl of previous years, however. Maybe it’s time to let him in on that fact and deal with this thing between them.

**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.**

Review:

For Martha, Sam has always been forbidden fruit.  Even when she was helping to manage Stage Dive, he eyes wondered to the sexy bodyguard.  When Martha, comes home to help her brother by watching his son, she doesn’t expect for her and Sam’s sexual tension to finally boil over.  What will happen when these two strong willed people find themselves pulled together?  Can Martha finally lose control and get exactly what she’s wanted for the last 10 years?

Yay!  Kylie Scott has brought us back to the Stage Dive family.  Martha and Sam’s story has been a long time coming.  Ever since these two were introduced to us in Lick they have been headed together.  This is long overdue and done so well its as if we never left them.  Martha and Sam are fantastic together.  You feel Sam’s love the exact same way Martha does.  We learn so much more about Martha and her feelings.  She is really quite the dynamic character we never really got to know.  She has been the villain but now she is the heroine.  You really get to see her layers and some very funny moments when she is babysitting her nephew.  If you, like me, have missed the whole Stage Dive crew then you need to run and pick this book up today.  I guarantee you won’t regret it.

“I don’t believe this,” I bitched. “My Valentino boots are actually sticking to the floor. That’s how gross this place is.”

Lizzy just smiled. “Told you to dress casual.”

“I am.”

The smile widened.

“Jeans and a tee is casual.”

“A tee? It’s velvet, Martha.” She held a bottle of beer up to her lips, taking a sip. “I said we were going to a dive bar. You have only yourself to blame for the fashion faux pas.”

“But velvet is in!”

“Would you two quit talking? I’m trying to listen,” said my brother, Ben. The big hairy idiot was slouched back in his chair, bopping his head in time to the music.

Lizzy shuffled closer all conspiratorial-like. “I know why you’re all dressed up.”

I said nothing. There was nothing to be said.

Next her gaze went to the man standing at the end of the bar across from us. No, no, I would not turn my head. I would not fall prey to her bullshit. After all, I’d managed to successfully avoid him for the forty-eight or so hours since my not so triumphant surprise return to the West Coast. Even with us both being in the same house. A very big sprawling house, but still.

On the other hand, it should probably be mentioned that he looked awfully good tonight in jeans and a white T-shirt with a leather jacket. Samuel Rhodes, otherwise known as Sam. Not a pretty man with his harsh features and bull-like neck, but something about him appealed to me. As always, his head was shaved and his body was built and my idiot fingers itched to explore.

Okay. So I guess at some point I must have turned my head. And shit, he caught me looking.

The corner of his lips rose just a little, just enough to mess with me, before he returned to doing his job by casually surveying the packed room. My heart did not speed up due to anything done by him. Clearly, I hadn’t totally caught my breath from when we’d walked in half an hour ago or something. That was all. Interesting to note, he did none of the checking me out typical of a heterosexual male who might have been into me. In fact, he didn’t really give me any signals at all. Ever.

Review: The One You Want (The Original Heartbreakers #.5) by Gena Showalter

I have a great novella to share with you today.  It is the beginning of a new series for the fantastic Gena Showalter.  The One You Want is a quick reading contemporary romance.  This is the start of a new addiction with one of my favorite authors, Gena Showalter.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

21848263Book Blurb:

In small-town Oklahoma, reputation is everything, and Kenna Starr will do anything to overcome hers. The supposed bad girl is determined to walk the straight and narrow, a seemingly impossible task when Tall, Dark and Sexy shows up…

Rich and powerful, Dane Michaelson is every woman’s dream. When he returns to Strawberry Valley after a sixteen-year absence, he is unprepared for the redheaded girl he’s never been able to forget. She’s all woman now—and he’s never wanted anyone more. But to have her, he’ll have to break through her defenses… and surrender his own.

Review:

Kenna has born a past that has not been hers all together.  She must walk a thin line until the impossibly handsome and sexy Dane returns.  Though they have not seen each other for many years the past between them is vast but the feelings they have had has never dissipated.  Can Dane help Kenna knock down her walls or will he just create more?

I utterly fell in love with Kenna and Dane.  They were intense in both their passion for each other and their protection of their past.  This really made this an intriguing story.  The almost impossible obstacles that both bring into the relationship adds an awesome sense of drama that draws the reader in.  Gena Showalter uses her impeccable talent to weave a new set of drama, love and passion.  I know I cannot wait to get my hands on her next book in this series.  I know it will be steamy, sexy and full of drama.

Review: Naughty King by Michelle A. Valentine

Today I have a great treat.  It is a great novella by Michelle A. Valentine.  She is the author of one of my favorite rock star romance series, Black Falcon series.  Naughty King is the first in her novella series.   I fell head over heels for this book.  I can’t wait for the next.  For my full review keep reading after you find out what Naughty King is all about.

Review:

Alexander King is a well-known playboy and player.  Having no use for the socialites of his social circle he finds himself hiring well paid call girls for his companionship.  When Margo Buchanan, Alexander’s new assistant, walks in on him receiving pleasure she realizes how much of an ass he really is.  Thus begins the war between them.  Margo is not used to working for someone like Alexander.  In fact she is only there to help save her father’s company.  A company that is being bought and sold by Alexander King.  Alexander knows this and is bound and determined to break Margo.  But when their war spills over to the bedroom they must be sure to hold on to their hate because if not it could easily lead to much more.

I loved this novella.  OMG it is hot and steamy.  The love/hate chemistry between Alexander and Margo is capable of setting your eReader on fire.  In this short novella you get so much information and hooks you so intensely that when it abruptly ends you want to be able to pick up the next part of this story.  The game/war between the two of them is so fascinating and exciting that it really propels the story.  With Michelle A. Valentine’s storytelling ability this erotic romance will keep you turning the page with more and more anticipation for what is to come.

Review: The “She” Stands Alone by Nadine C. Keels

Happy Friday!  I hope you are all like me and can’t wait to get to the weekend.  I am going to start your weekend off with a cute novella by Nadine Keels.  The “She” Stands Alone is part farmer in the dell and part woman empowerment.  This is definitely a short novella that will give you a break between reads.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Hope your weekend is fun and if your lucky like me (insert sarcasm) you will be getting snow.

22840673Book Blurb:

She can’t seem to catch any guy’s notice for anything. No, a pick-up pitch from a stranger gawking at her around Pump #2 at the gas station doesn’t count. And that attractive salesman at the one-stop-for-all-you-want store in town shouldn’t have been flirting with her in the first place, being ultra customer-friendly in an establishment notorious for its pathetic customer service.

Now, is this young woman’s dateless predicament unfixable? Not in the least. New plan: Sheridan Jones is going to date herself.

Ahh. The romance.

Review:

What happens when the sexy man you’ve been dating all through college leaves you for his true love that left him in high school?  If your Sheridan, you find yourself becoming what seems like invisible to the opposite sex and develop an addiction to books with sexy heroes and heroines.  But, this doesn’t solve your dating problem.  So, try something new…date yourself.  Almost as soon as Sheridan decides to date herself,  a man that’s been around starts to show interest.  Now, Sheridan must decide open herself up again or keep dating the one person who hasn’t let her down.

This was a cute little novella.  I think most women will read this and be able to relate to Sheridan in one form or another.  Her trials on how to get through her personal life and the decisions that she makes are at times comical and awkward but totally fun and real.  I think the dilemmas Sheridan goes through I have gone through on more than one occasion.  Unfortunately, I didn’t necessarily have the same about of fun but could probably deem them comical and awkward.  Nadine Keels really created a story that is short on length but big in heart.  Definitely a quick read that you won’t regret picking up.
