In four hundred years, no one has ever captured his attention like this. He must find out, which is why he just signed on as her new assistant. The problem is, she has no idea vampires exist or that she's just broken one of their laws. As the leader of his territory, Michael has been ordered by his council to turn her or kill her. "Over my dead body!" To overturn the ruling, Michael needs the council on his side, and right now they're asking him to hunt down and execute five hundred vampires no one can seem to locate. Unfortunately, his assassin days are long over, and he's not so sure he can go back to killing. But with Miriam's life on the line and their unusual bond growing stronger each day, will he dust off the old sword or give her the bite that will make her his forever?

  EXCERPT: The bell dings, and I reach for my small handbag and answer the door. Brody’s eyes start at my face and slowly meander down my body to my sandal-covered feet, and if I’m not mistaken, his jaw clenches. Just friends, Brooke. “Hey.” I can’t help but take my own perusal of the man standing before me. Jesus in a basket, he fills out a suit nicely. His shoulders are broad, and his arms muscular. Yes, this does things to me. “Can I come in?” he asks with a small smile on his lips. “Of course.” I step back and he walks inside my small house. “This is nice,” he says, but his eyes are still on me. “Thanks. I’ve been here for a couple of years.” I glance around, wondering if Brody and I have the same tastes, and then I glance back to him and bust out laughing. “What?” he asks. “Turn around.” He complies, and I reach up to pull the tag that’s poked out of the neck of his jacket. His hair is soft against the back of my fingers, and I can’t help but wonder what it would feel like as I fist it while he does amazing, sexy things to me. I take a deep breath and hand it to him with a laugh. “Wear it every day, my ass.” He tucks the tag in his pocket. “I didn’t bring a suit to Montana. I had to improvise.” He bought it just for me. And according to the tag, it wasn’t cheap. Now I feel bad. I shouldn’t have pushed the issue. He spent a bunch of money that he didn’t need to, all because I gave him a hard time. “I thought we could eat at Ciao tonight,” he says as he leads me out of the house to his rented convertible. The sun broke out a couple of hours ago, and it’s the perfect temperature now. But I just did my hair. I think about asking him to put the top up, and then decide, fuck it. I reach into my handbag and pull out a hair tie, twist my hair on top of my head, and grin as I sit in the fun car. “I could have put the top up.” “And that would have been a waste on a day like today,” I reply smoothly and have to physically restrain myself from reaching over to brush my fingertips through that soft hair at the nape of his neck. We drive through town in silence. Rather than park in front of the restaurant, he drives past, and I frown over at him. “Having second thoughts?” “No.” He sends me a smile. “Before we go in, I’d like to know why you got so quiet.” I bite my lip and look out my window, then turn to him and say, “Did you buy that suit just for me?” “Seems I do a lot of things for you lately,” he replies with a grin. “It’s not a big deal, Brooke.” “I’m sorry,” I reply. “I was just goofing around this afternoon. I didn’t mean for you to have to do all of this.” “All of what?” “Buy that gorgeous suit, take me to dinner. I feel like I hijacked your day, and I feel bad.” He pulls over, whips his seatbelt off, and turns to me. “Look at me.” I comply. He drags his knuckle down my cheek again, and that’s all it takes to set my body on high alert.

Release Day: FALL by Kristen Callihan!!

 
    The first time I met Jax Blackwood things went a little sideways. In my defense, I didn’t know he was Jax Blackwood—who expects a legendary rock star to be shopping for groceries? More importantly, a blizzard was coming and he was about to grab the last carton of mint-chocolate chip. Still, I might have walked away, but then he smugly dared me to try and take the coveted ice cream. So I kissed him. And distracted that mint-chip right out of his hands. Okay, it was a dirty move, but desperate times and all that. Besides, I never expected he’d be my new neighbor. An annoying neighbor who takes great pleasure in reminding me that I owe him ice cream but would happily accept more kisses as payment. An irresistible neighbor who keeps me up while playing guitar naked–spectacularly naked–in his living room. Clearly, avoidance is key. Except nothing about Jax is easy to ignore—not the way he makes me laugh, or that his particular brand of darkness matches mine, or how one look from him melts me faster than butter under a hot sun. Neither of us believes in love or forever. Yet we’re quickly becoming each other’s addiction. But we could be more. We could be everything. All we have to do is trust enough to fall.      

AMAZON | APPLE BOOKS | B&N

              I clear my throat. “While I was eating my ice cream—” He snorts, but remains tense. “I thought about how you looked familiar to me.” “It was the guilt haunting you.” “Or … And I’m just throwing this out there. You’re Jax Blackwood.” He actually flinches. “Fuck. You recognized me.” “It was bound to happen. John? Really?” His chin tips in a pugnacious angle. “It’s my name. John is … me. Jax is who I am onstage.” I picture him performing, all electric energy and raw passion and sheer talent. It’s a sight to behold. Hell, a couple of really hot fantasies have been induced by that sight. While I’m lost in a teen fantasy, his eyes dart around like he’s expecting someone to pop out from behind a snow mound and take his picture. Then his gaze snags on me. My expression must be slightly punch drunk, because his entire body leans away from mine. Not exactly flattering to realize he’s afraid I’ll try to lick his face or something. I snap my gaping mouth closed. “Oh, calm down. It’s not like I’m going to start squealing and try to grab your junk.” His expression lightens a little. “I think if you grabbed my junk, I’d be the one squealing.” “True. I have surprisingly strong hands.” When he stares at me in horror, I hold them up and wiggle my fingers. “Yoga. It’s highly effective.” “My balls just flinched in terror.” “Consider yourself warned.” He snorts but then glances at our building. “You really live here?” “Do you really think I hunted you down?” John—because I can’t seem to think of him as Jax—runs his hand through his damp hair, which makes his biceps bunch and twitch. “Yeah … that does sound crazy.” Crazy. This whole situation is. One day, I’m offered a four-month home in a dream condo, the next I’m standing on my stoop talking to a rock star. The biggest legend of my generation. I honestly don’t know how I’m not stammering right now. “I can’t believe we’re neighbors,” I say without thinking. His green eyes glint in the afternoon light, but he pauses and looks at me more closely. “You know, not to sound conceited here, but you’re kind of leering at me right now.” My chin snaps up like I’ve been hit, even as my body flushes with embarrassment. Shit. I totally had been leering. No, not leering. But I had been staring at him in awe. Ugh. “Well, you do sound conceited. I was simply making polite eye contact.” Liar McLiar-Face.           Kristen Callihan is an author because there is nothing else she’d rather be. She is a three-time RITA nominee and winner of two RT Reviewer’s Choice awards. Her novels have garnered starred reviews from Publisher’s Weekly and the Library Journal, as well as being awarded top picks by many reviewers.

About VIOLET UGLY:

Sixteen years ago, Merit Young left Granite Harbor, Maine, for California in search of a future that didn’t involve Ryan Taylor.

After the loss they both suffered, she isn’t prepared to face him—especially considering he’s the only one who’s always been able to see right through her. Ryan has lived his entire adult life in survival mode. Growing up with an abusive father has taught him to keep women at arm’s length, and that’s never been a problem. Until Merit—the only woman he’s ever loved—strides through his front door. He’s not sure how long she’s staying, but he knows it’ll be long enough to destroy what’s left of his heart. To overcome their dark past, they’ll have to shed light on a reality that will most likely tear them apart.

Exclusive Excerpt:

I suck in a deep breath of uncertainty and relief. Uncertainty of how this situation would have worked out had the phone not rung and relief that we didn’t have to dig our way out of this. When a warden’s work phone rings, they answer. No matter the circumstances because, if he doesn’t, it could mean a real bad outcome. Ryan drops his hand from the hem of my nightgown, and I don’t step back when he carefully leans forward to retrieve his work phone from the nightstand. When he does this, his head almost brushes my thigh. I should move. I should step back, but I can’t. I barely swallow. My heart still fluttering with no signs of slowing down, I know Ryan feels what I’m feeling right now.

Release and Review: CHANGING THE GAME by Ember Leigh!



My Review: We all love a good, emotional second chance romance. There's just something about that history, both together and since the original split, that adds such a fascinating edge to the story. I have not read the previous book in this series, but this can be read as a stand alone. I had no problem jumping right into it, because all I cared about was Lex and Lila's love story.

This book had a lot going for it, but what kept it from being a truly stunning read was that it felt a little rushed. Lex was hot, hot, hot, but I wanted to see his character more fleshed out before Lila comes back into his life. More development of him before we see what he's like with her, if that makes sense. Overall, this was a great read.

Cover Lovin': Love it!

Recommendation: Can work as a stand alone.

Final Rating: THREE AND A HALF out of FIVE stars (3.5/5)!! A good, emotional read. Recommended for those that can't get enough of second chances.

Book 2 in Ember Leigh's The Breaking Series, CHANGING THE GAME, is out today! Check it out and grab your copy!

Title: CHANGING THE GAME Series: Breaking the Rules Author: Ember Leigh Genre: Sports Romance Release: October 22nd

About CHANGING THE GAME

Lex is no longer a halfcocked hellion. He always knew Lila was the one for him, but drugs, dosing, and underground fighting got in the way. Five years after their devastating breakup, Fate brings Lila back into his life. Lex is eager to prove he’s not the same unhinged guy who snorted his way through the college years. He’s a healthy man with a career. One who’s eager to start a new chapter in their love story. Lila just wants to play it safe. Years after her tumultuous ex, Lila should want vanilla, but her heart craves the intensity Lexington Olivo brings. There’s never been anyone who can light her up like he does. When Lex wants a second chance, she can’t say no. But she can’t say yes, either. Secrets from their past could ruin everything. Because if Lila lets Lex in, it’s not just her at risk. Lex can’t be trusted until she’s sure he’s a changed man. One who’s far away from the underground. And while he’s busy proving himself, Lex’s past comes pounding on his door. The gang he used to fight for wants him back. And this time, they won’t take no for an answer.

Review: NO ONE CANCELS CHRISTMAS by Zara Stoneley!



Review: I know, I know, it's not even Halloween and here I am reading a Christmas book. But hey, it's never too early to start celebrating the holidays, and it's definitely always the right time to read such a sweet romance as this was! This is my first book by this author, but my goodness, I'm definitely looking into others. With how much I enjoyed her style, I'm amazed I haven't read her sooner. 

This was just so amazingly sweet. I loved Will and Sarah, and you could really see the sparks between these two. With romance, you know the two will end up together, but it doesn't always feel instantly right, but it definitely did here. They were perfect together, and I loved learning the secret behind Will's grinchy attitude. Definitely recommended for everyone looking to get their holiday reads off to the perfect start!

Cover Lovin': How cute!

Recommendation: Stand Alone, no prior knowledge necessary.

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)!!! Wonderful, sweet, and definitely recommended.



No One Cancels Christmas
It’s the most magical time of the year, and for travel agent Sarah it’s also the busiest! But this year one man threatens to ruin Christmas for Sarah’s customers – Mr Grinch, Will Armstrong.
The Shooting Star Mountain resort is a magical place, and Sarah has fond memories of Christmas here as a little girl – visits to Father Christmas, husky rides in the snow and hot chocolate by a roaring fire. But as the resorts new owner, Will refuses to play snowball or to deck the halls with anything remotely resembling tinsel!
With customers complaining their Christmas is ruined, Sarah decides it’s up to her to convince Scroogey Will just how magical Christmas can be….
But getting Will into the Christmas spirit is hopeless – he is Bah Humbug personified! But as Sarah gets to know him better, she realises that underneath all the gloom is a man struggling with a pain of his own.
With the big day approaching, Sarah realises that the magic and sparkle can wait. This year, she’s going to spend Christmas day with someone special her very own Mr Scrooge…

Review: SHADES OF WICKED by Jeaniene Frost!

Release Date: October 30th, 2018

Type: Paranormal Romance, Series, Book 1, New series, Bad boy, Spin-off series, Good-Bad Guy

My review: I have been a giant fan of Jeaniene Frost since the second Night Huntress book was released, which is when I discovered them. And honestly, I've been waiting for Ian's story since the beginning. But I remember reading a review Jeaniene Frost did, and she said something along the lines of Ian having not grown up enough yet. And honestly, it made sense. But the further the Night Huntress series, and its spin-offs, went, the more you could see Ian developing into who he needed to be to get his own story. And I thought I was ready, but I was so not prepared.

I could not put this down. It is for sure a one-sitting read. In fact, I wasn't even aware how long I had been sitting in one position, eagerly turning pages, until I finished, stood up, and heard all my joints crackle. But I had to know what was going to happen. I loved reading about Ian and Veritas snarking at each other, starting to fall in love, trying to get out of the different scrapes they find themselves in.. It was all wonderful.

This is Jeaniene Frost at her best. She brought everything we loved about her complex and entertaining plots, all the characters we know and love, and mixed in a grumpy older Law Guardian and a snarky-yet-noble scoff-law. I cannot wait for the next book!!

About the Book: In this thrilling new Night Rebel series set in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress world, sexy and ruthless vampire Ian finally meets his match!

The Rule Breaker

Master vampire Ian is unrepentant, shameless…and every shade of wicked. He’s made one too many enemies in his two centuries of existence, including Dagon, a demon who now lays claim to his soul. Ian’s only chance to escape Dagon is to join forces with a Law Guardian, but he’s never been able to abide by the rules for long.

The Law Maker

Veritas’ normal role is police, judge and jury to reprobates like Ian. But she has her own ax to grind with Dagon, so if she can use Ian as bait…well, all’s fair in law and war. As they scour supernatural hotspots to perfect their trap, Veritas soon realizes Ian’s devil-may-care, roguish image hides something much more powerful. And Ian discovers that Veritas has shocking secrets of her own. As they’re drawn to each other with a passion as intense as their peril, either love or justice will prevail. But each will have devastating consequences…
 

Cover Lovin': I wish Ian's hair would look redder, but otherwise, I love it!

Recommendation: Can be read without the rest of the Night Huntress world, but some knowledge of it would definitely help.

Final Rating: FIVE out of FIVE stars (5/5)!!! I knew when Ian finally got his own story that it would be EPIC, and I was so not disappointed! But how am I supposed to wait until the next book?!?!

Review: INKED by Drew Elyse!



My Review: This was so, so close to 4 stars. So nearly there, I almost changed my rating, but it just didn't feel right. I'll explain why in a few. First, what I liked! This is a good, well-told story. The kind you can just sink into when you need to escape. The author does a great job at characterization, the build-up to the suspense was well done, and you could practically see the sparks when the hero and heroine were together.

Now, for what didn't jive with me. I felt like I was cheated. There wasn't enough of that sweet build up - in fact, these two have already known each other for some time when the book starts. I wanted to see that flash of the first connection, the burn as they get closer... But alas, that's not what I got. I did still get a good read, but it just felt a little lacking. Still, I'd gladly read more by this author!

Cover Lovin': Hot!

Recommendation: Works as a stand-alone.

Final Rating: THREE AND A HALF out of FIVE stars (3.5/5)!! Good, but the one problem I did have bothered me enough that I was a little grumbly. Still well worth the read!

We are thrilled to be bringing you the release of the release of INKED by Drew Elyse. INKED is the second standalone in the Sailor's Grave series. Lovers of contemporary romance won't want to miss this one - be sure to get your copy today!

 

About INKED

INSTANT ATTRACTION IS A POWERFUL THING.
Six months of dancing around each other led to one explosive night and two weeks without a word.
Only then did I learn the truth: The man I’d wanted since he walked into Sailor’s Grave Tattoo Parlor was actually an undercover cop.
And the worst part is, I don’t even know his real name.
BUT WHAT IF ATTRACTION ISN’T ENOUGH
For over eight months I held back. Except for that one night when I couldn’t fight it anymore. I’d wanted her from the beginning, but I should have kept waiting until my secrets weren’t between us.
Now, I have the ultimate challenge before me: Convince the inked goddess of a receptionist to at least let me keep her safe, even if she won’t give me another chance.

Review: TILL IT STOPS BEATING by Hannah R. Goodman!



My Review: I clearly didn't look into this book enough before agreeing to review it, because I didn't realize it was part of a series. But despite clearly missing out on some major life events for Maddie, I was able to jump right in to this. It actually worked out well, I like how the author made the reader aware of previous storylines, not by just repeating them, but by having Maddie catch up with an old friend and share her story. 

But what really stuck with me is how realistic this book is when tackling the issue of anxiety. I don't think I can praise this author enough for how well she portrayed Maddie's anxiety, and how she coped with the major life events happening around her. While reading this, I found myself comparing it to the later books of the Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot - because both authors did a fantastic job writing about panic attacks, anxiety, and how utterly exhausting it can be. And since the Princess Diaries is one of my all time favorite series... comparing this book to that is high praise indeed. 

A few grammatical errors and typos can pull the reader from the story, but there's enough good here to suck you right back in. Overall, a recommended read! And I would be interested in reading more of the series sometime. Adding it to my ever-growing list!

Cover Lovin': Simple and sweet!

Recommendation: Part of a series, but can be read on its own. 

Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE stars (3.5/5)!! A good read, and recommended for any one feeling like they're not ready for adulthood. 



Till It Stops Beating
Seventeen-year-old Maddie Hickman’s senior year begins with the good (the reemergence of The One That Got Away), the bad (a cancer diagnosis, not hers, but it might as well be) and the WTF (an anxiety attack that renders her writhing on the floor like an upside down crab). 

Adding to her spiraling anxiety is Senior Project, in the form of I’ve Decided To Write A Book about The Other One That Got Away (And Crushed My Heart). Compounding it all is applying to college and keeping up with her friends. The ever mounting stress eventually rips her tight grip on all that she holds dear. 

Her break down leads to an unexpected road trip where she is forced to listen to her wildly beating heart. It is only in the back of a convertible with pop music blasting, that she discovers she must risk everything in order to really live.
