There are ugly truths 
and pretty lies.
When I lost them, 
I chose neither. 
I wrapped myself in silence.
My husband, my best friend, became a stranger who gave up.

Then…
he 
moved in next door, and everything changed.
You think you know this story,
but you don’t. 
Be careful what you ask for because the answer may not come the way you think.

*** COVER REVEAL *** Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

Reactions: 

The #1 New York Times Bestselling author Vi Keeland is back with a brand new standalone, Beautiful Mistake releasing on July 17th and we have the amazing cover for you today!






Model: Lucas Barbosa Gil

Photographer: Chuando & Frey

Cover designer: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative






The first time I met Caine West was in a bar. He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out. When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass. You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend--smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married. He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done. Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant. Only it turned out, the man I'd just told off wasn't the right guy. Oops. My mistake. Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology. I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right? That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning. Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant. I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking. Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West. This was going to be interesting…

Review
Kate Sterritt is a new to me author and I fell in love. I'm obsessed with Love My Way. It consumed me from the very beginning. I read late into the night and started reading as soon as I woke up. (which is not something I do. Mornings and I don't get along.) I read with my heart in my throat and tears in my eyes and cannot get Emerson's story out of my head. It was absolutely beautiful and completely captivating. I haven't been able to pick up another book since and my heart hasn't stopped racing.

Go into this story blind. The synopsis made me lose my breath and as Emerson's story unfolded, I was blown away by its complexity and its complete grip on my heart. It's not an easy story, but it's meaningful and important. It's about true, soul deep love for another person that transcends time and space. With brilliant prose, Ms. Sterritt ensnared me with her words and kept me bound by the growing story. This is one of the best books I've read this year and I can't wait to read more by this author.

*** BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY *** Infinite Us by Eden Butler

Reactions: 

Title: Infinite Us
Author: Eden Butler
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 23, 2017 
“Beautifully written, skillfully interwoven, a wonder of a tale. It's not often that I am truly impressed, but Eden Butler has blown me away.” New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Amy Harmon
“Infinite Us is a gripping story of the roots that define us, the hardships that test us, and the healing power of love and acceptance. It's a testament to how far we've come and how very far we have to go.” J.A. DeRouen, Bestselling Author of Low Over High
“Eden is a masterful storyteller who takes mere words and turns them into magic. She takes you on an intoxicating journey that refuses to let go. Infinite Us is an unforgettable story that'll leave you breathless.” Cassie Graham, Bestselling Author of Who Needs Air
"Simultaneously commercial and literary, a thinking person's romance." Christopher Ledbetter, author of "Drawn" from Evernight
“Butler shines again in this emotionally moving tale of love, despite life and its trials and tribulations. The writing is crisp, lyrical and the flat out FEELS between the characters leak from the pages straight into your heart. You WILL be moved.” Trish F. Leger, author of the Amber Druid Series.
Love is timeless…
Nash Nation loves zeroes and ones, over-sized monitors and late office hours. He’s too busy taking over the world to make time for relationships—that is, until his new neighbor Willow O’Bryant barges into his life, and now Nash can’t shake the feeling that this isn’t the first time she’s interrupted his world.
Then, the dreams start. And in the dreams—memories.
Memories of a girl named Sookie who couldn’t count on love or friendship, never mind forever. Memories of a library and a boy called Isaac and secrets made in private that destroyed his world.
The memories seem real, but who do they belong to?
When Nash and Willow discover the truth, life as they know it unravels.
The bridge between this life and the next is shored up by blood and bone and memory. Sometimes, that bridge leads to the place we’ve always wanted to be.
It was then that I saw something from Isaac I hadn’t seen before. His stony resolve crumbled and whatever excuses had always kept him from wanting me, from allowing me to act as though I wanted him too, fell away when he began to lower his hand and I held it still against my cheek. His skin was warm and I could just make out the sharp bite of his calluses against my face. He had an arch along his top lip and eyes like a perfect circle, a play of amber and gold vying for dominance in his irises. Not hazel really, but somewhere in the middle, someplace that said Isaac came from people divergent and varied. “Riley…” he said, a warning I didn’t want to hear. My gaze didn’t falter; I may have stumbled with Trent, but still, I knew what I wanted, what was best for me, and that was not some overbearing, suit-wearing bully. And Isaac, sweet Isaac, took my lifted chin for the invitation it was, made a sound deep in his throat, and just like that, with a single tilt of his head, stopped fighting and kissed me. The world went away and I heard the song of hundreds of voices inside of me that sounded so familiar, yet were unlike anything I’d ever heard before. Maybe it was that active imagination of mine working in overdrive. I had wanted Isaac’s touch for months, had daydreamed about it for hours and now that it was here, I realized that my imagination was dull and pathetic. Reality was so much better. He moved his mouth over mine, tentative at first, but fueled by my reaction and the awesome magnitude of what this felt like, he moved more confidently, more surely. Isaac wanted me and took what I offered freely—his lips soft, directing, his tongue teasing and satisfying all at once, careful of my broken lip yes, but oh, so absolute.
Eden Butler is an editor and writer of Mystery, Suspense and Contemporary Romance novels and the nine-times great-granddaughter of an honest-to-God English pirate. This could explain her affinity for rule breaking and rum. 
When she’s not writing or wondering about her possibly Jack Sparrowesque ancestor, Eden patiently waits for her Hogwarts letter, edits, reads and spends way too much time watching rugby, Doctor Who and New Orleans Saints football. 
She is currently living under teenage rule alongside her husband in southeast Louisiana.

FOUND UNDERNEATH by KL Kreig is LIVE!
"KL Kreig nailed it! The perfect heart-stopping ending to a fantastic duet, Found Underneath is everything you hope it will be and so much more!" ~ KL Grayson, USA Today Bestselling Author
BK2 Found Underneath E-Book Cover.jpg
BLURB
It began as a ruse. Take a girlfriend. Divert the press from the fucked up mess that’s my family until my father is re-elected. Stage a public breakup. Move on. Only that brilliant plan went straight south the moment I set eyes on Willow Blackwell. I found her. My center. My future. A soulmate with the will of a mule and the mouth of a harpy. I now want things I never wanted before. Permanent kinds of things. Only Fate—and her ex—have other plans for us. In some sort of cosmic impossibility, our lives unknowingly intersected years before when tragedy befell both our families. Once the devastating truth is finally revealed, the future I’d found in her will come crashing down around us and for the first time in my life I’m completely helpless. I may very well lose the only woman I've ever loved to a past neither of us saw coming. *warning: 18+ only. Contains foul language, explicit sex and a hot alpha (or two, or three). NOTE: This is NOT a standalone. It’s the conclusion to LOST IN BETWEEN, which MUST be read first.   My Review 

I was seriously giddy when this book landed on my Kindle. I started and didn't stop until I was finished. It was a fantastic conclusion to a unique and swoon-worthy duet. And I can't wait to read more by Ms. Kreig who is quickly becoming an auto-buy author

Found Underneath starts where book 1 ended. After an amazing weekend getaway, Shaw and Willow are ready to make their relationship real. But outside forces are proving too much to handle. When reality comes crashing down, Shaw has to prove that what he feels for Willow is real and that Willow can trust that implicitly. But Willow's past makes that hard to do and when her past clashes with Shaw's, everything she thought she knew just might come crashing down around her. 

Shaw was seriously perfection. He was sweet and caring and dedicated and just absolutely swoony deliciousness. Willow had come a long way and she was dealt a raw hand. I loved watching her open up and trust Shaw (there were definitely times I wanted her to do more of that sooner) and I especially loved watching her come into her own and really accept the life she was dealt. I was just so content while reading this story. It had all the things I wanted and gave me another book boyfriend to love on.

AUTHOR BIO As a USA Today Bestselling author, I write stories that are deeply emotional with flawed characters, because humans ARE flawed and if we read about perfect characters living in their perfect world, first of all, snoozer, but secondly, we never experience the gratification of redemption. Outside of writing, I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).

***RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW*** The Way Back Home by Carmen Jenner

Reactions: 




Title: The Way Back Home

Author: Carmen Jenner

Genre: Military Romance

Release Date: May 29, 2017


Blurb


August Cotton shouldn’t be here. When a tragic accident calls him home to Magnolia Springs, this returned Veteran adds his parents to the list of things he’s lost in recent years, right along with his IED detection dog and his left leg. As the sole guardian of his four-year-old sister, August must rely on his Marine training in raising a tiny hellion who’s as stubborn as he is. But the Corps could never prepare him for this. Nor could they prepare him for Olivia Anders, a woman who’ll stop at nothing to get her way.

As owner of Paws for Cause, Olivia is no stranger to the broken men and women who return home from war. She’s no stranger to broken dogs either. In fact, she’s made it her mission to pair the two and enrich both of their lives, but pairing ornery and aloof August Cotton will take some work. The last thing August wants is some pushy southern woman occupying his parents’ bed and breakfast and forcing him to open up about the hell he narrowly escaped, but that’s exactly what Olivia intends.

They complete one another, and yet they can’t stand to be in the same room.

Can Olivia make this hardened Marine feel again and finally show his heart the way back home?

*** Intended for a mature 18+ audience only. This book may contain triggers for some readers.

REVIEW

Just freaking awesome!! I got such a hangover from this book. I just wanted to hold onto the story. Keep it pressed to my heart. I honestly didn't read a thing for a few days. I just loved it!

August gets a call whilst he is away telling him the worst news he could receive. After getting injured while on duty for the marines he's lost himself. He spent his days wandering waiting for the time his life would end. Instead he has to return home to look after his little sister. He has no idea what to do with a child. He's still lost himself so he has no idea what to do her.

Olivia arrives in town expecting a warm welcome. She's been invited there to open a branch of Paws for Cause. Her charity set up to help service men and women after they return home from war. She sets them up with a Therapy dog to help them when they suffer flashbacks and be there when they need something to hold onto. The town had recently suffered a loss of a serviceman so Olivia goes to help them. Unbeknownst to her The people who asked her to come have recently passed and their son knew nothing of her arrival. She turns up at the guest house only to be met by the very grumpy and angry ex-marine August. From the start she puts her foot in her mouth by insulting him. Things go from bad to worse and her hopes for helping the town quickly diminish, No one wants her there but she is determined to do her job so she battles on.

Ohhhhhhhh sweet lord the love in this story is blinding! It might not sound it from my quick round up and the blurb but boy does it shine!

This is my first read by this author and it will absolutely not be my last.

There's this slow burn that slowly wraps around your heart until you're completely encompassed in it. You read on anxiously seeing August fight it every step of the way. You mentally fist bump Olivia for her tenacity and her courage not to give up. You will August to see what's in front of him and feel like shaking sense into him when he refuses to. You laugh at Olivia when she time and time again puts her foot in it. You smile big at August's little sister Bettina being so sweet and innocent while your heart breaks for her loss. Your eyes well up with tears every time August loses himself in his memories. You break your heart at what Olivia has been through but rejoice in her strength to carry on with her head held high. You fan your face at the heat between them both. You keep your fingers crossed that they will make it out together with a happily ever after.... All of this and then you realize that you love them. You've been pulled in so far that they mean a lot to you. Yeah yeah i know they're not real... but yeah... for that time... they totally are. I love them.

Both characters are so well written. The change in them both took you on such a journey i wanted to stay with them longer. August is slowly healing but what i loved the most was that the way he was, it wasn't sugar coated it was raw and truthful. Honest. PTSD is a very real condition and it should never be covered it glitter. It's hard. Not only for the sufferer but for their family and friends and this author showed it in it's true colours. Olivia also goes on her own journey. She's battling too, again nothing hidden just honest truths. I think in the beginning she's a little immature maybe? But as the story flows she comes into her own with fight and grit. There is a happy ending but it's still absolutely true to the story. No miraculous cures but a compromise and their version of happy.

All the supporting characters added a lot to the story. Even the nasty townsfolk. The ignorance showed by them is absolutely mirrored in real life because people often don't understand mental health conditions and often mock and taunt sufferers.

There was also two little back/side stories, one of August's past. It's between him and the town veterinarian Jude. I was drawn to this and I'm very much hoping that at some point Jude gets his own story. I also want to hear more about Josiah and Beau. Two boys teetering on the edge of going bad.

As i said the story is a slow burn but it draws you in without you realizing it. I had to put the book down to sleep but i did it very reluctantly and only because it was after 2am and i had to get up for work lol. It kinda surprised me as it wasn't action action action but still i needed to carry on reading. Brilliantly written with characters you genuinely care about.

I will keep this book in my heart for a long time to come. It's absolutely a 5 star read. I would recommend it to everyone i can. I already have.

Excerpt

“You know, if you want to see me naked and sweaty, all you have to do is ask, darlin’.”

“I do not . . . I wasn’t . . .” My words are stolen from me as he stalks forward with a maddening smirk on his face. “What are you doing?”

“Getting tired of waiting for you to be okay with this.”

“August, we talked about boundaries.” I press my hand to his chest because he's too close, and I can't think straight with the heady scent of his sweat and sandalwood soap distracting me. It wasn't my intention to run my hand over that sweat, to feel the hard-won muscle beneath, but here I am, petting him as if he's my favorite kitty.

“No. You talked about boundaries. I told you I was gonna fight, and I ain’t above fightin’ dirty.”

“How dirty?” I breathe.

August’s lips curl up into a smile. “So dirty.”

Both hands snake around my waist and he lifts me onto the counter, wedging his hips between my thighs. He hooks a finger in the sash and unties my robe as if he were opening a gift made just for him. I wrap my legs around his hips to pull him closer, and that’s all the admission he needs. He threads a hand through my hair and pulls my neck back to expose the tender flesh to his mouth. I close my eyes and whisper his name as my whole body turns to flame, starved for the oxygen that only his touch can bring. His hot mouth trails down my neck, his hands cup my breasts, squeezing, kneading, and I slide a hand between us, into the waistband of his shorts. I take his hard length in my hand, stroking him from base to tip. August grunts as he pushes my negligee out of the way with frenzied hands. His fingers find me bare and exposed with no panties.

“So fucking’ dirty,” he groans, wetting his lips.
