Release Day Party


Resolute. Firm. Unwavering
That was my love for him.
Steadfast for as long as I can remember.

As my best friend's brother, he ignored me before noticing me. He protected me, bought me my first beer, but eventually became my undoing. 

There was a time I would have died to get him to notice me, now I'd do anything to forget him. 
I'm not the one who can tame him, and he's not the guy who will change for me.
This isn't a story about falling in love, this is a story about falling out of love.
Unrequited love. 
And finding the strength to move on.
Here's to the steadfast.

*This is a first in a series that crosses years from YA into NA genre, due to heavy subject matter this book is for ages 16 and up. This is not your typical love story.*

Synopsis:

Miserable and dejected in her marriage, Isabel Fields encounters a stranger in a bar promising an opportunity to change her life. Nonetheless, she must make a decision she thought was reserved for other women. 
Sexual dominant, Sebastian York, specializes in igniting passion in his lovers, but women always come and go, and he’s never had a woman to call his own.

Their casual arrangement ignites Isabel’s long-buried passion and touches her heart, but Izzy struggles with the emotional turmoil that plagues her soul.
Sacrifices will have to be made by both, putting their love to the test. Izzy stands to lose the marriage she dedicated years of her life to, but has a chance to gain a relationship she's always longed for.

Release Blitz: Hot & Bothered by Lynn Raye Harries


Hot & Bothered
Hostile Operations Team Series - Book 8
By Lynn Raye Harris

Synopsis
He can never have her. Having her means the end of his career in the Hostile Operations Team. But when he learns she’s carrying his child, he’ll have to make a choice…
Ryan “Flash” Gordon has been drawn to Emily Royal bin Yusuf since the first moment he met her. But she’s a terrorist’s widow, which means she’s completely off-limits. A HOT special operator can never be with a woman whose name is on government watch lists the world over.
But when Emily begs him for just one night, he can’t refuse. The next morning, she’s gone. Not just from his bed, but from his life.
Emily can never clear her name—or can she? When a rogue CIA operative offers her a chance to put her past behind her and do something for her country, she leaps at the opportunity—even though it means leaving behind the man she’s fallen in love with. But not before she lets herself have one night with him.
One night with stunning consequences…

Excerpt
“Ryan.”
Emily’s voice was soft and shaky, but her eyes were open. She gazed up at him with glassy brown eyes, and he sank down on the mattress beside her, pushing her hair back off her forehead with a tender gesture. Too late, he realized what he was doing and dropped his hand away.

“I’m sorry,” she said softly.

Her apology kicked him in the gut. “He lied to you, Emily. He can’t do what he said. You need to go home and go back to school.”

She moved her head from side to side on the pillow. Telling him no. Rejecting him.
He stiffened.

“You and Victoria want to cocoon me in Bubble Wrap and keep me from living my own life. This is something I need to do. I’m not leaving until it’s finished.”

“It’s not safe here for you. You know that.”

“It’s not safe for you either. For any of us.”

Ryan got to his feet. She was a stranger to him in so many ways. The woman he thought he’d known—the soft, sweet, sometimes confused woman—was nowhere in evidence. This woman was determined and stubborn.

But so was he. He turned to Ian Black and Matt, who’d come into the room with them.
“We need to call Mendez and get her on the next transport out of here. She can’t stay.”

Review: Trick A Stepbrother Romance by Caitlin Daire


Patrick Archer made my life hell in high school, but that’s all over and done with now. I’ve tried not to think about him since I graduated a year ago, because if I did, all I’d be able to think of is punching him right in his stupid face. His sexy, perfect face. Dammit, even after everything he did, I still can’t deny how hot he is, and it’s impossible to stop myself from picturing him in my dreams night after night…
Because there’s no justice in the world, Patrick is a famous actor now, and his Mom is married to my studio executive Dad….making him my evil stepbrother. My Dad wants us all to act like a proper family and spend more time together, and as such, he’s hired me to spend time with Patrick and clean up his bad-boy media image.
So now I’m stuck hanging around Patrick all the time, and he’s barely making any effort to make my life or job any easier. Even when he’s nice, I can’t help but think he has an ulterior motive.
After all, how much can you really trust a guy named Trick?
**Warning: This book contains lots of HOT sex, drama, adult language and some violence. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. Enjoy!**

Amazon:

My 4 Star review

Overall I have to say that this book was really good. I am not a huge fan of the Step-brother books but this book was more than that.
Patrick Archer is a cocky arrogant *ss who made Lucy's life a living hell. She gave him something so special and he tainted it and then everyone found out. Little did Patrick and Lucy know that their parents would end up meeting and get married?
Now this book has a bunch of everything in it...Lies, betrayal, hot steamy sex, secrets and love. I couldn't put this book down, I was so addicted to it.
The ending of this book made me really happy and I am glad they decided what they decided.... and you all know I can't tell you what that is....so go out and snatch this book up and fall in love with Patrick Archer!

Review: Breaking Jane (Geary Brothers Series book 3) by Grace Harper



Breaking Jane (Geary Brothers Series Book 3)


Breaking Jane is the third and final novel in the Geary Brothers Series.
Jane Spencer was a carefree spirit in the late 1970s where she lived with her sister Gale and their strict parents in the suburbs of Edinburgh. They were both academically smart and had a bright future ahead of them.
When Jane arranged a celebratory party to signal the end of the exams and the start of summer, she never would have organized it had she known what would happen that night.
Fate or luck, kept the Geary family and the Spencer family forever linked after that night. One moment of recklessness has a rippling effect for decades to come.
Secrets, lies and betrayal haunts the sisters, neither of them was the same after that night. The lies that were told wasted time, decades of misery followed.
Find out in the last novel how the secrets are revealed and how the lives of the Spencer and Geary family are changed once again. The story is set in the past as well as the present, where we see how Gale becomes a bitter woman and how Jane turns into a drunk.
Will the sisters ever find peace and love, will the secrets revealed destroy the happiness for one of the Geary brothers?

Amazon Link:

My 5 star review

 I loved this book. Breaking Jane has to be my favorite of the Geary Brother's Series.
I wasn't really sure if I liked Jane's character before but now I love her. I love how the author takes us back and lets us see what she went through and why she is the way that she is today. I actually have respect for Jane and my heart broke for her. They way her family and sister treated her was beyond horrible, it makes me just want to take the 17 year old Jane and protect her.
Then Grace Harper gives me...I mean the reader Mickey. Now Mickey is a no bullshit man who will put you in your place when needed. I love his character and he is just the perfect 10 in my book.
This book has secrets, lies, betrayal, love, and forgiveness in it. I will be honest and let you that if I had it my way I would want to see the book come to life on the lifetime channel. That is who good this book was written. When the author takes you into the past, it is amazing.
Yes, for you all who have read books 1 and 2 my other men are in this book as well, but not as much and I for one and happy about that. Because this book is all about Mickey and Jane. (Read it and you will see it too)
I am sorry if this review is scattered...but I don't want to spoil it for you. But I will tell you that the ending of this book is bittersweet to me.

Sweet because it is the perfect ending to an amazing series and bitter because I feel like I just got Mickey and now he is leaving me already. 

About the Author:
