Blurb:
Ahha (Anna) Antipova was four years old the day her strung-out mother left her and her brother on the side of the road. After a year in a Russian orphanage, the siblings were brought to America by English-speaking people who promised a safe, forever family. Learning a new language and culture was nothing to Anna, who grew into an overachiever in a home with strict rules around biological verses adopted children.

The primary caretaker to her adoptive parents’ blood children, Anna spent most of her teen years doing anything she could to please her parents. In fact, she excelled in everything she touched. Abram went the other way, stirring up trouble and expecting his younger sister to clean up his messes. She didn’t mind, it was only another year or two, Anna reasoned. Besides, he’s all I have.

Until one day…

Two weeks before high school graduation, Anna sat in an emergency room surrounded by strangers. With permanent scars at the hands of her adoptive mother, she needed to escape a home that was no longer safe. The problem was, she was only sixteen. A minor with no legal rights to emancipate herself, Anna struggled to find a way out. Counting on the kindness of strangers and her boyfriend, Elliot, Anna found herself desperate to find a way out. But it was not easy. With the system working against her, she could see no escape.

Until another day…That was the day she became fearless.

Excerpt:
Anna sits on the emergency room bed on top of thin white blankets. Beside her, Delaney chatters about the class vote for senior superlatives while a tall paramedic named Gage checks on us from time to time. Elliot holds Anna’s hand and lets the two girls talk without interrupting. When he reaches for something or checks his phone, Anna jumps and grabs his hand. I stand in the doorway of the private room, the last one at the end of a long corridor. I’m grateful for the privacy she has here and know there’s no way her parents can get through those doors; we’ve already told social workers what’s going on. For now, she is safe. And Gage is standing guard.
Just back from an x-ray on her neck, Anna is waiting for a woman from the domestic abuse center to come and talk to her about what’s going on at her home. Hoping they will assign her an advocate, I try to keep my mouth shut. I’m not used to feeling helpless in these situations. Finally, unable to take just standing around, I ask the kids if they are hungry.
Ten minutes later, I return with seven types of snacks from the emergency room vending machine. I watch them fight over who gets what and smile. Finally, they look like normal kids. It’s the first time since Anna was assaulted that I’ve seen them laugh like this. I laugh too, telling Anna to throw me the chocolate-covered pretzels.
It’s three more hours before a woman named Cheryl shows up from the local domestic violence shelter. She asks Delaney, Elliot and I to leave the room within minutes. Anna looks at me nervously, asking the woman why we can’t stay.
“They’ve been here with me all day. They are my support system,” she pleads.
“I’m sorry,” Cheryl says, shaking her head. “You are a minor and I don’t have your parents’ consent to talk to anyone. The only person I can talk to is you. You are going to have to do this on your own.”
“Okay,” Anna says, looking down at the bed.
“Anna, it will be okay. Just explain what happened and answer all her questions. She’s here to help you. She does this for a living. It’s going to be okay, I promise,” I say, unsure about Cheryl’s gruff demeanor myself. You better not make me into a liar, lady.
“Okay. I trust you.”
Great.
“It’ll be fine, Anna. You can do this. I’m proud of you,” Elliot says, kissing her forehead.
“Yeah, this is nothing. You’ve got this,” Delaney pitches in. “You’re a soldier.”
I smile at her and mouth “I love you.” She doesn’t see me.

Finding KylerFinding Kyler (The Kennedy Boys #1)
by Siobhan Davis

Two fractured hearts and a forbidden love they can’t deny.

You shouldn’t want what you can’t have…

Faye Donovan has lost everything. After her parent’s tragic death, she’s whisked away from her home in Ireland when an unknown uncle surfaces as her new guardian.

Dropped smack-dab into the All-American dream, Faye should feel grateful. Except living with her wealthy uncle, his fashion-empire-owning wife, and their seven screwed-up sons is quickly turning into a nightmare—especially when certain inappropriate feelings arise.

Kyler Kennedy makes her head hurt and her heart race, but he’s her cousin.

He’s off limits.

And he’s not exactly welcoming—Kyler is ignorant, moody, and downright cruel at times—but Faye sees behind the mask he wears, recognizing a kindred spirit.

Kyler has sworn off girls, yet Faye gets under his skin. The more he pushes her away, the more he’s drawn to her, but acting on those feelings risks a crap-ton of prejudice, and any whiff of scandal could damage the precious Kennedy brand.

Concealing their feelings seems like the only choice.

But when everyone has something to hide, a secret is a very dangerous thing.

• The full series is available exclusively on Amazon and free to download from Kindle Unlimited.

Release Boost: Fallen Crest Home by Tijan


Today is my stop during the release boost for Fallen Crest Home by Tijan!

Title: Fallen Crest Home
Author: Tijan
Series: Fallen Crest High #6
Rating: 5 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Links:

Blurb:
It’s been years since my mother was in my life.
I healed.
I learned to accept love.
I lived.
That’s all done. She was away, and now she’s back.
I’ve avoided her for a year and a half, but I can’t hide anymore.
Mason has an internship in Fallen Crest, so we’re heading back for the summer.
And when we got there—no one was prepared for what happened.

My Review:
Well, that was like literary crack for my soul. So EPIC! Loved every page. Stayed up until 3 am and had to put it down as I was so tired. Two hours later I picked it up again as I couldn’t go to sleep because my mind was conjuring up all kinds of scenarios for what was going to happen. So, yes, I finished it at 7.30am this morning and got up to work on only two hours sleep. Like a zombie today but so worth it. Man, I LOVE this series so much. I’m already sad at the prospect of it drawing to a close even though we have FC7 to come next month. Could read about these characters forever. Love Mason Kade. Sam is still a little irritating at times and I wanted to bash her head against the wall a few times during my reading of this book but it in no way dented my enjoyment. These characters are like old friends at this stage. Wonderfully entertaining. And the chemistry between Sam and Mase is the best I have ever read – it gives me chills all over. I get all the feels with this series. Massive book hangover now. Roll on May.

Excerpt:
My hand cradled the back of his neck, holding him prisoner.
I didn’t want him to look away, to move away.
I wanted him inside of me.
His eyes darkened and as if reading my mind, he moved back to pull his pants off. After grabbing a condom, and pulling it on, he came back and settled between my legs.
My arms went back around him, like returning to their home.
“Sam,” he murmured, tracing a finger down the side of my face. He tucked some hair behind my ear, and then I felt his lips against mine again.
Yes. Home.
That’s what this was.
I groaned, my head falling back, and I felt his soft chuckle against my skin, but then he reached down and shifted, lifting my leg until I wound it around his waist. He dipped in, shifting, and I felt him at my entrance. He paused, then slid inside.
My eyes closed and I relished the feel of him in me.
He began moving, thrusting inside of me.
As he kept going, and he slid his hands up my arms to capture my hands, I opened my eyes. We were staring back at each other, watching each other. I could feel him reaching inside of me, searching, claiming me. Everything in my body yearned for him, yearned for more. I wanted more. I needed more.
The second he touched me, everything blared alive. I was awakened. Always.
In and out. Mason kept thrusting.
My fingers clamped down over his, sinking deep as his pace quickened.
“Mason,” I gasped. Weak. His onslaught kept going, harder, faster. “I love you.”
He groaned, climaxing, and his body clenched as he thrust into me a last time. It sent me hurdling over the edge, and I wrapped both arms around his neck, hanging on.
A moment later, he brushed a soft kiss on my forehead before he slipped out.
I still lay beneath him.
I didn’t want to move.
I didn’t want him to move, and eventually, we slept like that.
I woke later, but I was still in his arms. He was curled up behind me, and I went back to sleep again. All the doubts and questions would be there tomorrow.

Blog Tour: Kiss and Make Up Series by Sara Ney


Today is my stop during the blog tour for the Kiss and Make Up series by Sara Ney! I share my review for the first two books in the series today. There are also soem teasers.

Kissing in Cars

Title: Kissing in Cars
Author: Sara Ney
Series: Kiss and Make Up #1
Rating: 4 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance/ Sports Romance
Links:

Blurb:
This novel, along with all others in this series, is a standalone with no cliffhanger. You’re welcome.

WILL SHE, OR WON’T SHE…

Studious and (mostly) sensible, the only thing Molly Wakefield wants to do is get through Senior Year and graduate. Well, that and hit the beach in her spare time. Okay, fine – and go shopping every once in a while for a new dress… (and who could blame her?)

And things are going according to plan – until the day she spies Weston McGrath, handsome star athlete and scholar, spying on her in study hall.

A tad creepy? Maybe.
Thrilling? Absolutely.

You see, Weston McGrath happens to be one guy no one can get close to.

Despite her best efforts to avoid it (because let’s face it – the guy isn’t exactly “boyfriend material”) Molly and Weston form a friendship.

And more….
Sort of.
But it’s a friendship that comes with a price – because Weston just cannot seem to stop screwing things up. Or saying all the wrong things. Possibly in that order…
And who has time for an 18 year old “fixer-upper” that should know better?
Not Molly.
Or does she?

Note: This YA book is intended for 17+ due to the vulgar language used by its male characters (and occasionally the females as well, even though they’re too lady like to do it throughout the entire book). Some adult sexual situations that steam up a few car windows. This title is approx. 63,000 words.

Weston appears to be your stereotypical asshole hockey player player and the type of boy that Molly usually steers well clear of, however, appearances can be deceiving.

I really enjoyed the start to the Kiss & Make Up series by Sara Ney. Molly was a great MC with lots of spunk and a genuine heart. She wasn’t afraid to speak her mind or articulate her feelings even in front of the hotness that was Weston and I really admired her self-confidence. Her friend Jenna was funny but she also irked me with the way she went on about Weston both in front of her own boyfriend and Molly. Seriously, not cool. I don’t actually think she meant to be hurtful but it was insensitive all the same.

Weston was swoon worthy in the extreme, and essentially a nice guy with a penchant for messing up spectacularly. That scene with Stacey was like a knife to the chest – this was when I wanted Weston to man up but he chickened out again and I was furious with him. All ends up well, even if the last chapter and epilogue felt rushed.

The writing is brilliant, character development is decent, and the story flowed consistently. I liked the dual POV and felt it was well executed. I would’ve like a little bit more of a plot and a lot more of the romance but that’s just a personal choice.

I’ve read (and loved) Sara’s How to Date a Douchebag series and I was expecting this one to be funny. It was, and the scene in the restaurant at the end had me giggling like a three-year-old, but it wasn’t quite up to the standard of her newer series.

All in all though, this was a great read and I’m looking forward to book 2.

Thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for providing a complimentary copy of this book which I have voluntarily reviewed.

He Kissed Me First

Title: He Kissed Me First
Author: Sara Ney
Series: Kiss and Make Up #2
Rating: 3.75 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance/ Sports Romance

Blurb:
This novel, along with all others in this series, is a standalone with no cliffhanger. You’re welcome.

HE SAID…
“Trust me – If there’s one thing I’m not attracted to, it’s the shrieking, overly-dramatic shrew that’s taken over my sister’s apartment. And what is up with her hair? I know what I want; an easy, uncomplicated lay – and Cecelia Carter sure as shit isn’t one. But I never could resist a challenge, and vow to wipe that condescending grin off her pretty face. Aw, shit. Did I just call her pretty..?” – Matthew Wakefield

SHE SAID…

“Trust me – If there’s one thing I’m not attracted to, it’s an arrogant, selfish and foul-mouth hockey player. I know what I want; someone who’s good for my body and soul and makes me laugh – and Matthew Wakefield isn’t any of those things. I cannot stand the sight of him; I mean, what a jackass. If I refuse to give him anything but sass and sarcasm, it’s only because he deserves it…” – Cecelia Carter

This book is intended for those 17 and older. If you’re offended by cursing (particularly “F” bombs), sarcasm, sexual situations and Alpha Male jackasses – this book is not for you…

My Review:
Book two in the Kiss and MakeUp series is the story of Molly’s brother Matthew and we watch as he falls in love with her roommate, Cecelia. Both Matt and Cece were freaking nuts and there are plenty of laugh out loud moments in this book and it definitely had me giggling throughout. The emails and texts were very funny and were a quirky touch. I liked that we caught up with Molly and West and it was funny to see how Matt and West sparked off one another. I did find it difficult to get into this book at first as both male and female voices were irritating but that wore off as the book progressed. While I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first book, and this series isn’t a patch on Sara’s How to Date a Douchebag series, it is still a thoroughly entertaining, quick, fun read. If you enjoy upper YA/NA contemporary romance with plenty of comedic moments then you’ll enjoy this series.

Actual rating: 3.75 stars

Thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for providing a copy of this book which I have voluntarily reviewed.

Blurb:
This novel, along with all others in this series, is a standalone with no cliffhanger. You’re welcome.

ABIGAIL DARLINGTON IS AWKWARD…

She will never be “that” girl. You know the one: that girl on campus, confident in her own skin. Always saying the right things. Putting herself out there. Knows how to talk to a guy without stammering.

Nope. Shy but clever, and easily embarrassed, Abby is fine being the wallflower in her circle of outgoing, beautiful friends; she would rather read about a sexy book boyfriend than actually have a live, breathing one.

…BUT CALEB LOCKHART IS WORSE.

Star goaltender for the University’s hockey team, Caleb is quiet and broody, preferring the solitude of his orderly, regimented life. He doesn’t like, or need people—and plans to keep it that way. One more year left of hockey and he’ll be long gone.

AWKWARD NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD. Both their lives change the day that Abigail falls for Caleb. Well, falls directly on top of him, to be accurate. Because sometimes we don’t settle into love.

We fall there.

WARNING: This book contains cursing, and LOTS of it. It also has sex, uncomfortable and often awkward situations. Not to mention, the secondary characters say some really inappropriate s**t. Not intended for readers under 17

About the Author:
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, and fancies herself British.

Before I Shatter full wrap

Excerpt:
“Vita!” James is panicked, shaking my shoulders, when my eyes begin to crack open. The bright light violates my pupils, and I slam my eyes shut again. My head is pounding.
“Stop shaking her, boy. We don’t know what damage that could cause.” I relax a bit as my body takes in the grandfatherly voice of wisdom. James’s hands release me. “She’s coming around. Give her a moment.”
I moan, raising an arm to cover my closed eyes. “I’m fine.”
“She could pave a road with those words.” The Old One’s voice gets farther away.
Before I can even wonder what that means, the light mercifully wanes, and I dare to peek out from under my arm. I begin to piece together where I am. The tiny white room. Lying on my monitoring station.
A visibly shaken James is sitting next to me, tears threatening to spill out of his eyes, face ashen.
“Hey,” I coax. “It’s okay. Nothing to be worried about.”
James shakes his head and looks down. A sniffle seems to actually compose him, and he looks up at me. “Vita, I’m so sorry. If I would have known, I would have warned you.”
Still hazy, I recall my experience in the meadow with the solider boy. Before speaking, I resolve to never let myself be that helpless again. Starting right now. Just like James said, I will be the one doing the breaking. Well, maybe not right now. After I recover from whatever this is.
“Warned me about what?”
“The dazers,” he practically whispers, but I still hear the George’s tongue cluck from the computer station. His disapproval is thick. “You passed out on the steps. I couldn’t wake you up. When I brought you here, I thought you were dead.”
“Yes, the drugs caused your heart to race,” the wizard explains, less emotionally. His eyes never leave the tablet in his hands. “Your heart didn’t care for that so it shut down…for a bit.”
“It shut down?” I echo as panic begins to rise from my toes.
“Only for a moment.” His hand waves dismissively. “Everything’s fine.” The Old One smirks, finally looking up at me as he turns my own words around on me.
“I died?”
“For a second.” George holds up two fingers very close together in an attempt to keep us positive.
Whoosh. “I came as soon as I heard.” Long brown hair whirls through the room. Mom busies herself snatching the tablet and replacing James at the side of my bed. She grasps my hand, leans in, and begins examining my eyes. I have no idea what they look like, but her fear and disgust focus across the room. “George, thank the stars you are still here! How could this have happened? I’m not even sure what this means.” She shakes the tablet at him, the data revealing itself to me shortly. “Where was she? Who was with her?”
James makes a move to step forward and the Old One stops him. “She was just doing as I instructed. Taking time off. Meeting new people. Trying out a party. I’m sorry. I didn’t know she would be confronted with…substances.”
Mom visibly calms down. I guess maybe she couldn’t be too angry with the man who had just saved her daughter’s life? She lays the tablet down gently. “What can I do for her?”
“Nothing, I’m afraid. The drugs have to work their way through her system. She won’t be able to start training until they are flushed out. Her new friends just may have bought her enough time to completely restore before the next round.”
My eyelids feel as though they are made of lead. My hand is nestled between stronger ones. I fight to stay awake behind the fading light.
“What will we ever do without you?” My mother’s whisper floats across the room to me.
His firm response slices through the darkness closing in around me. “The director has plans but so do we. Stick to the plan. Thanks to your husband’s—ex-husband’s—news story, she’s about ready to enter a world where everyone knows her and what she can do. She needs you two more than ever.”
I didn’t know then that when I awoke, it would be to a new world. A world without George, without visits from my dad, and without panic attacks. A world where I was a celebrity, a scientific wonder, and no longer alone. Never mind that I put my life at risk each time I pushed one the boundaries of human capability. I lived by the words I was never meant to hear:
“Vita’s never going to be broken. She’s going to be the one doing the breaking. She’s stronger than any of us will ever know.”

Rose Petal Grave

ANCIENT SECRETS CANNOT REMAIN BURIED FOREVER.

Founded two centuries ago by a powerful tribe of Gottwa Indians, Rowan was a quiet town, so quiet that I fled after graduation. Staying away was the plan, but Mom died suddenly.
Dad said she suffered a stroke after she dug up one of the ancient graves in our backyard, which happens to be the town cemetery. Creepy, I know. Creepier still, there was no corpse inside the old coffin, only fresh rose petals.
As we made preparations for Mom’s burial, new people began arriving in Rowan, unnervingly handsome and odd people. I begged them to leave, but they stayed, because their enemies—my ancestors—were beginning to awaken.

Blog Tour: Cristin Harber’s Only series

Today is my stop during the blog tour for Cristin Harber’s Only series. I share my reviews for all four books! There are also two teasers for the first book. Have you read this series? Let me know your thoughts!

Only For Him

Title: Only for Him
Author: Cristin Harber
Series: Only #1
Rating: 5 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Links:

Blurb:
Grayson Ford and Emma Kinglsey–close since they were kids, opposites in every way. He’s the stuff high school crushes are made of, Mister Popular, and captain of every team. She’s artsy, cute, and not in his league, though fully aware of Summerland’s “I Dream of Dating Grayson Ford” support group.

I can’t say no. The girl’s had my heart since before I knew it went missing.

He hides a life of hell. His father hates him, his mother’s gone. Emma is his only savior, yet she doesn’t know her power over him. She’s the only girl he wants, the only one he could ever tell–though he won’t.

I’m stronger, bigger, more of a man than he’ll ever be, but because I ruined his life, I’ve taken his crap, his attacks, the vulgar nature of his existence.

Until she discovers Gray’s embarrassment, his humiliation. Emma fights for him and for a chance. Theirs is a Cinderella story that she believes impossible. But as the layers peel back, it’s just a guy who needs a girl in order to keep breathing.

My mind is already doodling Mrs. Grayson Ford in imaginary notebooks. He has no clue where my head is at… But, given that I didn’t see what just happened coming, maybe I have no clue where his head is at either.

My Review:
Wow, I just loved this novella! What a great introduction to Gray and Em’s love story. Cristin definitely knows how to write complex characters and evoke soul deep emotion in her readers. I felt the pain of unrequited love, the pain of self-loathing, the fear, the hurt, the joy, the agony – the whole gamut of emotions while reading it. I did see both twists coming and I was hoping I was wrong. My heart broke for our couple, and I can’t wait to see them get their HEA.

The writing was superb, the pacing fast paced and consistent, and the dual POV was expertly executed – both voices were unique and I was never confused over who was narrating.

An excellent start to this novella series, and a great introduction to author Cristin Harber for me.

Thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for providing a complimentary copy of this book which I have voluntarily reviewed.

Only For Her

Title: Only for Her
Author: Cristin Harber
Series: Only #2
Rating: 4 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Links:

Blurb:
The second installment in the Only series. Must read book one first!!

First loves never die but Grayson Ford comes close. Bleeding out in a war zone, he barters with God. Bring him back alive, and he’ll make it right with his girl.
All I want is Emma. I need her, and I fight for her memory. A story. A smile. Anything. But it’s all blank.

Emma is not his girl anymore. Time has skipped by and life’s been hard. She strips to pay the bills, waitresses to fill the hours between classes and her third job. All while working to be the best mama she can be to the little girl who will never know her daddy. Even though Grayson abandoned her, she mourned his death. Until he calls, and everything she knew was wrong.

It’s him. The him that ruined my life. That made my life. That confused my mind to the point that I can’t figure out if I’ve been destroyed or set free. The him that… is… dead.

He’s back with one objective–Emma Kingsley–and she never sees it coming.

My Review:
Another great installment in this novella series. Gray has finally manned up and decided to make amends for past wrongs. Ems is working herself to the bone in order to support her family and put herself through college. Her character really shone through in this one and I admired her strength and her resilience. Her love for Gray hasn’t dissipated in the slightest and I felt her pain (although I do believe his apparent demise was glossed over and her reactions weren’t shown realistically.)

I thought Gray was very presumptuous when he made a reappearance and that Ems capitulated way too easily but I could forgive it because these two share a soul-deep forever-love connection that is all consuming. Wow, their chemistry just bled off the page and I totally ship them. That ending had me reaching for the next episode straight away!

Again, it’s well written and it flows well, and I’m definitely enjoying this series.

Thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for providing a complimentary copy of this novella which I have voluntarily reviewed.

Only For Us

Title: Only for Us
Author: Cristin Harber
Series: Only #3
Rating: 4 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Links:

Blurb:
The third installment of the Only series. Must be read in order.

Grayson and Emma. First love. True love. And… they have a daughter. Abandonment is his curse. He left his woman, survived his team, and missed the moment most precious to a father. Until now.

I didn’t know you were killing yourself with work. I didn’t know you’re raising our daughter. So help me God, had I known, there is no military force on earth that would’ve kept me from you.

Love needs to heal all, or they won’t survive the collision of their separate lives. Emma must reach deep into her heart that is barely hanging on and find forgiveness. Grayson, wrecked with PTSD-filled nightmares, must prove that he’s here to stay and able to rebuild his family against all odds.

I need to say I love you. But what I mean is I love you–in a way that defies definition and exists only in a world that you and I are in.

My Review:
This was, in the main, heartwarming and hopeful, and the character’s reactions were very believable. I especially loved how big Emma’s heart was. She could’ve made Gray earn back her love but she is crazy about him and she trusts in him to do the right thing this time. The romance was very swoony, and I’m loving this couple. The end was very predictable but definitely, entices one to want to read the final installment.

Thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for providing a comp copy of this novella which I have voluntarily reviewed.

Only Forever

Title: Only Forever
Author: Cristin Harber
Series: Only #4
Rating: 4 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Links:

Blurb:
The fourth and final installment of the Only series. Must be read in order.

There comes a time when Emma must face the secret she kept from Grayson. But she never thought it would be while she stood on stage at Emerald’s. The seconds she has to convey that her life is in danger are lost in the devastation that she sees rip through him.

She pinches her eyes closed. “Don’t leave me. No matter how mad you are, please, please don’t leave me here alone.”

But there’s more on the line than just Emma’s safety. There’s the danger that brought Titan’s Delta team in to the strip club in the first place. A threat that’s too close to home, too close to the family, the daughter and woman Grayson plans to claim.

I push away the sudden spring of fear. Life’s too unknown, with hidden enemies and unseen terrors. The idea that I could lose her again… it’s unbearable.

A love story like Grayson and Emma needs a forever love, and somehow they’ll find their way to her fairytale.

My Review:
A great ending to a great series. This was a little more action-packed, and we saw the introduction of the Titan men, and I have to say I’m definitely intrigued to read that series now! I loved the ending and that they got their HEA and it was so sweet with Callie. Beautiful and heartwarming.

Now that I’ve read all four novellas, I can rate this series 4-star and recommend it. It is well written, fast-paced, character development is decent, there is plenty of angst and drama and the romance is swoony. The main reason it isn’t five-star, for me, is the fact that the plot was way too predictable. I would have liked more unexpected plot twists and turns but I figured out all of them. However, it’s still a really great collection of novellas and I think I’ll definitely be checking out the Titan series in the future.

Thanks to the author and Insklinger PR for providing a comp copy of this book, which I have voluntarily reviewed.

Blog Tour: If You Fight (Corrupted Love #2) by K.M. Scott


Today is my stop during the blog tour for If You Fight (Corrupted Love #2) by K.M. Scott! I have some teasers for you and an excerpt!

Title: If You Fight
Author: K.M. Scott
Series: Corrupted Love #2
Genres: Romance
Links:

Blurb:
The second book in the unforgettable Corrupted Love series by K.M. Scott, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Heart of Stone and Club X Series!

If you fight, will we last?

Serena
All my life, everyone around me made sure I was weak. My father. My sister. And now the man my father forced me to marry. But Oliver doesn’t know what I know. Strength can come even in the hardest times, and if you’re willing to fight for love, nothing can stand in your way.

For the first time in my life, I’m fighting back, and with Ryder by my side, I’m never letting myself be weak again.

Ryder
They want us to be their pawns, but I won’t let them use her like that. I promised I’d protect Serena, and if it costs me everything in this world, I will.

Even if it means returning to the one place I swore I’d never go back to again.

Excerpt:
Trapped in that bed as a captive audience, I watched as my husband entered my hospital room and noted the look of surprise in his beady eyes. Thought you got rid of me, did you? Not so quickly, Oliver. I’m tougher than I look.

Behind him, my father followed, along with Ryder. Overjoyed to see him, I didn’t even attempt to hide how happy I was he’d come to be with me. I’d pretended long enough for a man who tried to kill me.

Oliver spun around to see who had made my eyes light up and brought a smile to my face. Pointing his finger at Ryder, he barked, “Get him out of here! He doesn’t belong here!”

Ryder leveled his gaze on him and didn’t waver, but my father spoke up to defend his presence there. “You should be thankful for him. He’s the reason your wife is still alive. If he hadn’t found Serena in time, we’d be meeting to discuss her funeral instead of seeing her lying there in that hospital bed.”

Rage simmered beneath Oliver’s façade of worry for me, but he said nothing in response to my father’s dictate, even though I knew how much he chafed under his orders. He turned back to look at me and as if on cue, he played the loving husband act like a pro.

Taking my hand in his own far-too-soft hand, he held it just tightly enough that I couldn’t pull away without causing a scene. “How do you feel, honey? Your father told me the horrible news, but don’t worry. We’ll have other children.”

So that’s how he planned to play it. Would he say it was an accident that caused me to fall down a flight of stairs in my own home while he was there? Or would he claim complete ignorance and continue with the desperately concerned husband act?

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Ryder react to Oliver’s words, his eyes opening wide and filling with anger. My father watched Oliver carefully, hanging on every word he said like he wasn’t sure if his son-in-law had been involved in hurting me.

About the Author:

Entangled Athletes Sales Blitz


This week, I’m helping Entangled Publishing celebrate the heroes of Embrace & New Adult Romance! There is a big sale with 6 discounted books, an interview and a giveaway!

Today we’re celebrating athletes! Below you can read a short interview with what Embrace authors have to say about their athletic heroes.

Interview

Question: Are any of your athlete characters inspired by real life people? If so, who?
Tessa Bailey (author of Unfixable): Shane from Unfixable is a bartender from Dublin (in addition to being a Formula One driver). In real life, I married a bartender from Dublin. He doesn’t race cars, but there is some definite similarities.

Cindi Madsen (author of the Taking Shots series): Beck Davenport was modeled after Gabe Landeskog, Hudson Decker came about after staring at a lot of pictures of Tyler Seguin, & my inspiration for Dane was Chris Letang. Ryder “Ox” Maddox was tricky, & he’s actually more modeled off actor Robbie Amell.

Jennifer Blackwood (author of Foolproof & The Rule Maker): Gus Kenworthy totally helped inspire me to write Ryder Covington 🙂 and Claudio Marchisio was hero inspiration for Ryan from Foolproof.

Shae Ross (author of the Pretty Smart Girls series): The heroine athletes in RUSH were partially inspired by my nieces, Samantha and Sydney. Sam played soccer for Florida Gulf Coast and Syd plays for the University of Toledo, Rockets. Some of the scenes in RUSH parallel their experiences as female athletes on and off the soccer field.

Megan Westfield (author of Lessons in Gravity): I was watching a short rock climbing film when I initially had the idea for Lessons in Gravity. The climber in that film was Dean Potter who was one of the greatest rock climbers of this generation. Like Dean Potter, the pro rock climber in Lessons in Gravity, sometimes climbs without a rope—also called free soloing. (Sadly, Dean Potter died two years ago B.A.S.E. jumping in Yosemite National Park.) The most well-known free-solo rock climber is Alex Honnold who is practically a household name after appearing on 60 Minutes, in nationwide TV commercials, and on the cover of National Geographic, to name a few.

Jessica Lee (author of Falling for the Player): No!

Question: Besides athletes, about what kind of heroes do you like to read?
Tessa: Blue collar men have always been my favorite. I love men who get dirty and work with their hands. Mechanics, law enforcement, construction workers. They can’t solve problems with money, so they have to be more creative and that’s what I love most.

Cindi: Really I’m a fan of all heroes. I just want to see a guy fall head over heels over the heroine. If they’re funny, bonus points.

Jennifer: Men who like to work with their hands, who don’t mind getting dirty. Maybe a mechanic? Or a cowboy?

Shae: I like to read about heroes in the working world. There’s something oh so appealing about a successful man in a business suit. Don’t you think?

Megan: Aside from heroes that are athletes, I’m currently smitten with rock star heroes like Berkeley from In Bloom by Katie Delahanty and Jack from Mean Girl Apologizes by Stephanie Monahan.

Jessica: I also adore a hero with a tortured soul. A man whose been to hell and back. And the heroine is the only person who can see who he really is behind the pain. She’s the person who can finally help him heal.

Question: What sport do you think has the hottest athletes? Why?
Tessa: I have to go with hockey players. It’s not just the fact that they’re massive, muscular, sweaty gods—they fist fight. Normally, I would eye roll two men in a physical fight, but I’ll allow it in the name of sports glory.

Cindi: Well, I have to go with hockey, because I don’t want my hockey players mad at me. LOL. But football would be a close second.

Jennifer: Soccer. The abs. Need I explain more?

Shae: MMA–Mixed Martial Arts.

Megan: Outdoor adventure athletes are the very hottest! I define adventure sports as non-motorized sports out in the wild somewhere. Backcountry skiing, rock climbing, surfing, mountaineering, rafting, mountain biking, etc. These sports are the sexiest because they take athletic ability far beyond what you see in a city-sport, plus the stakes are way higher because chances of rescue are very slim if the athlete gets hurt.

Jessica: Soccer or football. Why? Have you seen those shorts and those tight pants? lol
