And the best part? It’s only 99c for a very limited time!

Keeping KylerThe Kyler Collection(The Kennedy Boys #1-3)
by Siobhan Davis

This box set includes the first three books in the highly-addictive Kennedy Boys series from USA Today bestselling author, Siobhán Davis, and is over 1,000 pages of heart-stopping drama, intriguing twists and turns, and angsty romance. Complete trilogy that ends with an HEA and no cliffhanger.

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.
But when you play with fire, you risk getting burned.

Cover Reveal Inseparable

I am super excited to share the cover for Inseparable with you today! This is my first completely standalone title and I’ve been really excited about this book all year. When I finally sat down to put pen to paper, the words were just bursting from my brain because the story had been practically writing itself in my head for months, lol. This story is my darkest, grittiest read to date, and I literally CANNOT WAIT to share it with you. I’m busy putting the finishing touches to it at the moment before it goes to my editor next month. Continue reading for more details, and an exclusive, advance SNEAK PEEK.

InseparableInseparable
By Siobhan Davis
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: New Adult
Release Date: 9 January, 2018

Blurb:
A gritty, angsty, friends-to-lovers standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis.

A childhood promise. An unbreakable bond. One tragic event that shatters everything.

It all started with the boys next door…

Devin and Ayden were my best friends. We were practically joined at the hip since age two. When we were kids, we thought we were invincible, inseparable, that nothing or no one could come between us.

But we were naive.

Everything turned to crap our senior year of high school.

Devin was turning into a clone of his deadbeat lowlife father—fighting, getting wasted, and screwing his way through every girl in town. I’d been hiding a secret crush on him for years. Afraid to tell him how I felt in case I ruined everything. So, I kept quiet and slowly watched him self-destruct with a constant ache in my heart.

Where Devin was all brooding darkness, Ayden was the shining light. Our star quarterback with the bright future whom everyone loved. But something wasn’t right. He was so guarded, and he wouldn’t let me in.

When Devin publicly shamed me, Ayden took my side, and our awesome-threesome bond was severed. The split was devastating. The heartbreak inevitable.

Gradually, Ayden and I grew closer. We graduated and moved on with our lives, but the pain never lessened, and Devin was never far from our thoughts.

Until it all came to a head in college, and one eventful night changed everything.

Now, I’ve lost the two people who matter more to me than life itself. Nothing will ever be the same again.

Inseparable Excerpt:

Prologue

Present Day – Angelina

Life is just a flow of interconnecting moments in time. A combination of well-thought-out actions and spontaneous reactions. A sequence of events and people moving in and out of your personal stratosphere.
At least, that’s how I’ve always viewed it.
Like a squiggly line veering up and down with no apparent pattern. Plotting the highs; pinpointing the lows. Showcasing the happy times. Highlighting the mistakes and the resulting consequences. Calling into focus all the myriad of things I should’ve done differently if I had known.
When I was a kid, I was obsessed with the notion of time—making a beeline for the fortune tellers every year when the carnival descended on the wide, open grassy field just outside town. I saved my pocket money all year round so I could have my fortune told. The idea that you could see into the future, to know what was around the corner, held an enormous fascination for me.
I wanted to make something of my life.
To dedicate myself to a profession that helped others.
To know happiness awaited me.
To receive confirmation that the two most important people in my life would always be in it. Because even the thought I could lose Ayden or Devin always sent horrific tremors of fear rushing through me.
For as long as I can remember, it had always been the three of us. Best friends to the end. The awesome-threesome. Forever infinity. It was a friendship more akin to family. A meeting of minds and hearts and promises. A connection so deep that we swore nothing or no one would ever come between us. We committed ourselves in a secret bond when we were twelve, and the commitment was imprinted on my heart in the same way it was inked on my skin.
I could never have predicted what was to come.
That I’d be the one to destroy everything.
No fortune teller ever told me that.
For years, I’ve thought of nothing but the what-ifs, and obsessed over so many questions.
What if a fortune teller had told me what would come to pass?
Would things have been different?
What would I change?
Would I have had the strength to stay away from my two best friends? To forge a completely different path in life? To deny something that was intrinsically a part of myself? Could I slice my heart apart knowing it was the right thing to do?
For years these questions have plagued me.
But I’m too afraid to confront the truth even though it’s front and center. Even though I carry it with me like a thundercloud, hovering and threatening but never opening up, never letting the storm loose.
Some truths are far too painful to acknowledge out loud.
As if to speak the words would confirm what I already know about myself.
That I’m weak, selfish, and not at all the person I thought I was.
Perhaps that’s why we don’t have that cognitive ability—to see the future, to know what lies ahead. I’ve thought of it often. If it’s evolution. If at some time in the future humans will be able to sense the path of their destiny. To alter their fate. To assume full control over every aspect of their life with conscious decision.
For now, all I’ve got is that squiggly line and a huge helping of regret.
What good comes from continually looking back? From locking myself in the haunted mansion of my past? Meandering with the ghosts of guilt and shame? For a girl who spent her happy youth so focused on the future, it’s a very sorry state of affairs. But I’m stuck in this washing machine that is my so-called life. The faster it churns, the more I lose myself. So, I try to stop time. To stand still. To numb myself to my reality. To blank out feeling and emotion. To close myself off. To never allow another human to imprint on my heart or to see into the black, murky depths of my soul.
The honest truth is, if I’d had a crystal ball—if I’d known what was going to happen—I still wouldn’t have changed a thing.
Because I would’ve missed those high points. Those happy memories that are the only thing keeping me alive right now.
If that’s what you can call my current existence.
And that makes me the most selfish, conceited liar on the planet.

Ivy Morgan hasn’t been feeling like herself lately. Not like anyone can blame her. After all, being held captive by a psychotic fae prince hell-bent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld is bound to leave some mental scars.

It’s more than that, though. Something dark and insidious is spreading throughout Ivy, more powerful than she could ever imagine… and it’s coming between her and the man she’s fallen deeply in love with, elite Order member Ren Owens.

Ren would do anything to keep Ivy safe. Anything. But when he makes a life altering choice for her, the fallout of his act has far reaching consequences that threaten to tear their lives apart.
If Ivy is going to have any hope of surviving this, she must put aside the hurt and betrayal she feels, and work with not only those she loves, but with an enemy she would rather kill than ever trust. War is coming, and it soon becomes clear that what Ivy and Ren thought they knew about the Order, themselves, and even their enemies, has been nothing but a cluster of dangerous, deadly lies. Ivy knows she must be more than just brave to save those she loves–and, ultimately, to save herself.

Because behind every evil fae Prince, there’s a Queen…

Review: If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Happy release day to If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout! Scroll down to read my review for this book, see some teasers, enter the giveaway and check out the trailer!

Title: If There’s No Tomorrow
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Series: standalone
Rating: 5 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Links:

Blurb:
Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She’s ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic—one of opportunities and chances.

Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything.

Now Lena isn’t looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened.

For what she let happen.

With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when her and her friends’ entire existences have been redefined? How can she move on when tomorrow isn’t even guaranteed?

My Review:
A beautifully written coming-of-age story that packs a powerful punch. Emotional, insightful, and ultimately uplifting in the end, this book captured my attention from the instant I picked it up and I barely put it down until I finished it.

I am a massive JLA fan and I’ve made no secret of the fact that I think her YA paranormal series is her best work, but after reading TPWF and ITNT, I have to say that her YA contemporary romances are now vying for that prime position.

Even though this is a complete standalone and it’s in no way connected with TPWF, it stirs the same emotions, the same intensity, and the same addictiveness. At least, it did for me.

I read this book in less than twenty-four hours but that is nothing new for me with a JLA book.

Lena was a fantastic MC – a genuinely nice, sweet girl who made a bad decision and was slowly allowing it to chip away at her self-esteem and her self-worth. Her whole world tilted on its axis overnight and she was drowning in a sea of guilt and self-loathing. Sebastien, her BFF and longtime secret crush, was her rock, and he tried everything to get her to open up, but she was terrified of telling him the truth.

Sebastien was a swoony leading man and I loved the delicious push and pull nature of their relationship as they both held back from making the first move. Their connection was beautiful and it jumped off the pages of my Kindle. All the little touches and gestures and actions were gorgeous and I was totally rooting for them.

When the big event occurred it came out of nowhere and took me by complete surprise. Gosh, my heart was in my mouth and I was devastated at the fallout. I couldn’t believe it and I read on with a definite tightness in my chest. Jennifer perfectly demonstrated the whole gamut of emotions one would feel in such a situation and it was expertly written. She didn’t shy away from tackling the complex aspects of the tragedy, and it was real, raw, vulnerable, and so gritty and powerful. It made me stop and think about choices and consequences and responsibility. The message was very well delivered.

In the end, we get our HEA and I was so happy. It’s taken me a few days to write this review because I’m still processing it all. For me, that is always the sign of a great book.

If you enjoy emotional romances with a powerful message and books that really make you delve deep and think, then this is the perfect read for you.

Another showstopper, Ms. Armentrout. Thank you so much for another fantastic read, and for the advance complimentary copy which I’m always very grateful to receive.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Review: Fallen Heir (The Royals #4) by Erin Watt

Title: Fallen Heir
Author: Erin Watt
Series: The Royals #4
Rating: 4.5 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Links:

Blurb:
These Royals will ruin you.

Easton Royal has it all: looks, money, intelligence. His goal in life is to have as much fun as possible. He never thinks about the consequences because he doesn’t have to.

Until Hartley Wright appears, shaking up his easy life. She’s the one girl who’s said no, despite being attracted to him. Easton can’t figure her out and that makes her all the more irresistible.

Hartley doesn’t want him. She says he needs to grow up.

She might be right.

Rivals. Rules. Regrets. For the first time in Easton’s life, wearing a Royal crown isn’t enough. He’s about to learn that the higher you start, the harder you fall.

My Review:
Compulsively readable, and highly addictive. You won’t be able to put this one down until you’ve finished it. At least, I didn’t. A phenomenal addition to The Royals series, and a surefire crowd-pleaser. Erin Watt has definitely knocked it out of the park again! I just want to grab Easton and smother him with love – that boy is so in need of it!

This book is more of a character-driven story than the original trilogy, in my opinion. You will find lots of the same delectable drama, witty banter, laugh-out-loud moments, and emotional highs and lows as the initial books, but Fallen Heir delves deeper into character development in a way Paper Princess didn’t. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it’s just an observation. If you go into this expecting lots of plot twists and turns, you might be a tad disappointed.

Easton. Oh, Easton.
How my heart ached for you.
How my palm itched to slap your face.
How I wished I could reach into my Kindle and hug you to death.
How I wanted to shake you repeatedly and demand you pull your head out of your ass.
To say Easton has lost his way is a massive understatement. He is aimless, virtually parent-less, and struggling without Reed to keep him on the straight and narrow. He lashes out when he is hurt, and he acts so foolishly when he is drunk (which is a lot of the time.)

I really liked Hartley. I admired her determination and her strength of character. Her family are jerks, and she has been treated terribly unfairly, but she is still fighting and surviving, and I had tons of respect for her. I liked that she challenged Easton, and fought their attraction, and the slow-build up of their romance was perfect.

I’m starting to really dislike Lauren. Ggrrr. I wanted to choke her after that conversation she had with Hartley in the Royal kitchen (as an aside, I think Easton’s personality may be rubbing off on me a little. Hence, all the aggressive, violent undertones to this review. I’m not really like this in real life. I swear!)

The last ten percent of this book was like – hell,yeah, here we go! I was on tenterhooks the whole time! And I LOVED it. And then bam! Cliffy city. Holy moly. It was awesome. I’m hoping it’s not as it seems because my heart will shatter, but I cannot wait to read the next instalment.

In summary: Another hugely entertaining read, with superb character development and a H and H who will both tug at your heart strings.

Actual 4.5 stars.

Massive thanks to the author and Nina Bocci for supplying an ARC of this book which I am voluntarily reviewing.

Review: Sustain by Tijan

Title: Sustain
Author: Tijan
Series: standalone
Rating: 3.75 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Links:

Blurb:
I had a simple life.
I worked two jobs, made ends meet, and hung out with my mom and twin brother. The other part of my life was about avoiding him, but when SWAT raided my boyfriend’s home, that was the last straw. The boyfriend got tossed and to help me keep busy, my brother talked me into joining their old band again, but I had to be honest. It wasn’t a hard sell. Playing drums was in my blood. I used to be addicted and that craving hadn’t been satisfied in three long years. The only problem was their lead singer.
It was him.
The drums might not have been the only thing I was addicted to. I think I was still addicted to him too.

My Review:
I’ve been binge-reading Tijan for weeks now and she is definitely up there at the top of my fav authors’ list. I love the soap-opera style drama and emotional complexity of her novels. They always suck me in and eat me right up!

Sustain is a friends to lovers story set within a rockstar world (one of my favorites) with a male lead that is to die for, so I was off to a good start. I ADORED Luke and Bri was also great, even though both of them frustrated me with their inability to communicate at times. Another great thing about Tijan is her ability to create strong secondary characters. I loved Gunn! Braden was a loveable rogue and Elijah and Emerson were the token jerks (especially the latter – I wanted to swing for him so many times.)

The reason this is not a higher rating is down to some issues with the plot and certain things not being properly explained. Also, while the chemistry between Luke and Bri was sizzling, in the main, the romance was a bit on the light side. Then it all felt very rushed at the end when I wanted to see some of them together as an actual couple.

Definitely, not up to the magnificence that is the Fallen Crest series – man, I love that series SOOOO much and can’t wait for book six – but still a decent read, and one I’d recommend.

In summary, this is a very good standalone contemp NA/Rocker romance and a must read if you are a Tijan fan.

Actual rating 3.75 stars.
