All the Beautiful Things; Love and Lies #2 
(#2 within a duet)

Publication Date: May 11, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Duet/Contemporary Romance

Author: Stacey Lynn

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

All the Beautiful Things is a beautiful story about family, friendship, and love. It jumps right back in at the continuation of Hudson and Lilly’s story, right where we left them swimming through a sea of lies and deception. This is not a standalone as we come to the second part of this duet. Hudson and Lilly now have to navigate through the sea to discover if their relationship is worth fighting for and build trust all over again.

Lilly, who has never had a basis for a loving relationship, doesn’t know who to trust or where to turn when she wakes up shattered by the lies the Valentine family have been feeding her. However, are they really lies or just omission of the truths? She doesn’t know how to wrap her head around everything she’s experienced as the entire time she’s spent with Hudson and his family has felt like a falsity. This is just the tip of the iceberg in the second part of this duet.

Lilly really gains a lot of strength and grows exponentially as she comes to trust herself in her decision making, but like I mentioned before those lies are just the tip of a bigger picture. Hudson is the man who stands out more in this book and what we learn about him and his family. The love he had for his sister, the foster kids that came and went, his mother that he lost, and his past relationships. Hudson may seem like a man who has everything, but he’s just as broken when it comes to love as Lilly at the end of the day.

Lilly grows exponentially from book one while she makes decisions about her life and truly getting to know the man she originally was falling for in the first book. As they try to repair their relationship and everything in the Valentine family comes to light, she gets to decide if he’s truly worth staying in love with the man who was built on smoke and mirrors.

There is a lot of meat yet to uncover between these two, not only between Hudson and Lilly who have a lot to untangle before their story comes to an end and their journey is beautiful to read, but the entire Valentine family. This book is just more and in being more, it’s about the family you choose and in the long run, the family you decide to keep by your side forever.

Synopsis:

She’d been betrayed too many times to hand over her trust.
I’d lost too many people to love too easily.

Together, we were a mess. A constant struggle for peace. Yet it was in each other we found everything we were looking for.
Until tragedy struck and I feared the worst.
Pushing her away would have been the best. Kept us safe and unshaken.

But it was too late. My little fighter had determined what she wanted, and she was willing to go down swinging to finally earn her happily ever after.
It was her determination that kept us together, even through the worst of it.
And when we finally made it to the other side, I knew…

All the ugly things we’d survived could lead to something beautiful.

The stunning conclusion to Hudson and Lilly’s story will release on May 11th!

Contemporary Romance, New Adult, Release Day/New Release, Year in Releases - 2021, Year of Reviews - 2021

New Release – Say I’m The One by Siobhan Davis

From the USA Today bestselling author of Inseparable and When Forever Changes comes another emotional, angsty, new adult romance that will rip your heart apart before mending it again.

Say I’m the One, the first in the all-new All of Me Duet from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available now!

I’m head over heels in love with my best friend. Although, I can’t pinpoint exactly when Reeve Lancaster became my entire world.
Was it when we were little kids, practically brought up together, after Reeve’s mom died during childbirth and his dad subsequently fell apart? Or when I doodled his name in my school journal at age ten? Maybe it was when we became boyfriend and girlfriend at fourteen or when we shed our virginity at sixteen, pledging our forever?
I was there as his star ascended—like I’d always known it would—and there wasn’t a prouder person on the planet. As the only child of Hollywood’s golden couple, I’ve lived my life in the spotlight enough to know it wasn’t what I wanted for my future. But I sacrificed my own desires, because Reeve’s happiness meant everything to me.
Until he crushed my heart into itty-bitty pieces, forcing me to fly halfway around the world just to escape the gut-wrenching pain.

The opportunity to study at Trinity College Dublin came at the perfect moment, and I jumped at the chance without hesitation. If I’d known fate was meddling in my life, perhaps I would have chosen differently, but my future was cemented the instant I laid eyes on him.
Dillon O’Donoghue was Reeve’s polar opposite in every way, and perhaps, that’s why I felt drawn to him. He was the dark to my light. The thorn in my side, irritating me with his cold disdain, wild recklessness, and a burning rage hidden deep inside him that spoke to a silent part within me. Yet Dillon showed me what it was like to truly live, opening my eyes to endless possibilities.
What happened next was inevitable, and I only have myself to blame. He warned me, and I knew my reprieve was temporary, because there is only so far I can run.
Especially when fate hasn’t finished messing with me yet.

BLURB

My demons will ruin whatever is left of her halo.

BOWEN
I was living on borrowed everything: time, feelings, motives, even these stale breaths.
I was expired in every way.
No saving me.
He should have lived instead.
He deserved to squeeze every drop out of life and rub it in my face the way he always did.
I was stuck here as half of a person and Eve expected me to be whole enough to fix her.
We were too shattered to ever be put back together again.
I was her demon. 

EVE
I was wasting every second of every day trying to make time move faster.
I was ready to throw away this life as the Princess of Denmark and go back home where Bowen would be waiting for me. There was no stopping me.
I had been promised to Bowen since our births.
I was determined to save myself for him and only him – my life line.
I may be bruised and broken but that only dirtied up my angel wings.
Nothing he couldn’t handle.
I would always be his angel.

EXCERPT

I should have given him the truth. Anything but the silence lurking inside my mouth making me mute.
Just as I pulled the band away from his body his grip crushed my small hands so hard I felt myself wince. “We aren’t doing that here… I don’t need your pity,” his words might as well have been venom.
It was well-deserved, my body screamed: use me to bury the pain and my eyes were glazed over in sympathy.
“Bowen…” I was trying to slice through the immediate anger cocooning him when his grip didn’t let up, holding my hands still too tightly.
He looked down on me like I personally insulted him in less redeemable ways. “It doesn’t matter how damaged you are when you look at me like that. It would have been easier to just sit pretty and be the wife I don’t want. No demons except me. Now there is nothing holding me back from making sure that fake halo is replaced with horns.”
Standing up right instead of looking down at me like a silly girl who couldn’t handle his demons, his fists clenched making the wraps get even more taunt around his hands.
My mouth was still gaping open but no syllables or sounds came out. Not one word while I watched him square up to the bag hanging in its place. “You always wanted to match.”
My eyes stung with tears and I felt myself suck in my bottom lip like it was the key to holding back tears.
Hitting a small remote in his pocket music flooded his home gym, too loud to think or talk anymore.
Bowen’s fist drove into the bag over and over making me flinch every time. I pushed him to be someone to me and didn’t take into account how askewed how my expectations were.
My expectations were soul crushing.
My expectations were selfish.
My expectations disregarded trauma altogether.
I mumbled a quick sorry around my trembling bottom lip hoping that would suffice.
Few steps forward and ten back seemed to be the dance with the devil. He promised to fuck my halo into horns and now I felt overwhelmed by the need to be just as broken as him.

AUTHOR BIO

Elena Monroe grew up in Florida scribbling down stories from a very young age. These stories were really just wavy lines filling the paper, but she knew each word, each emotion, each character’s name, and there was no tricking her into forgetting what each line signified. Just like her unconventional way of writing as a toddler Elena is setting her own rules and just telling stories. 

Much like her debut novel, The Best Years, life certainly imitated art. Transplanting from the South to the East Coast, Elena currently lives in Connecticut with husband, reformed bad boy.

Blog Tour – Bad Intentions by Ella Frank

Bad Intentions, the all-new sexy and intriguing romance and first book in the Intentions Duet from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank available now!

My name isn’t Logan Mitchell, but Marcus St. James doesn’t know that…

When I showed up at my roommate’s work party, the last thing I expected was to find a man straight out of my dreams. But when the crowd parted and the fates aligned, there he was, waiting for me. Marcus St. James, president of ENN WorldWide News.

Sexy and powerful, with a stare that could freeze you in place, Marcus was the perfect reward for securing a job at Mitchell & Madison, the best law firm in Chicago. To play with the big fish, however, one must become a big fish, and that’s where my little white lie began.

It was one night. I was never going to see him again, and from the second we spoke, I knew he was interested. It was there in his eyes, the same fire in my veins. It was there in his voice, whenever he said my name.

The only problem? It wasn’t my name, and now I wanted more—much more.

But how can anything good come out of something that started with such bad intentions?

Bad Intentions is the first book in the Intentions Duet.

Let’s see…where to begin…

I’m inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we’re doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master’s degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there’s usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I’m not writing; I’m reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I’m reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it’s gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.

New Release – From the Embers by Aly Martinez

Our love was born from the embers, and together we would go up in flames.

From The Embers, an all-new standalone catastrophic romance from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez is available now!

In the aftermath of tragedy, it’s strange the things you remember.
The deafening boom as the house exploded.
The paralyzing fear as I searched for my wife.
The blinding smoke burning my eyes as I carried her out.

But carved into my soul for the rest of my days would be the earth-shattering realization that the woman in my arms wasn’t my wife.

Bree and I were the only survivors—not that either of us were truly living after that night. As a single dad with nowhere else to go, I moved into her guest house. And somehow, through the guilt and grief, we forged an unlikely team.

It took years, but I watched the gradual return of her smile—slow and life-altering.
The two of us could sit outside for hours, talking about nothing, and it filled the massive hole in my chest with new life.

I may have carried her out of that fire, but the truth was, Bree saved me.

As we healed, the secrets and lies of the past smoldered in the ashes, threatening to ignite again.

Our love was born from the embers, and together we would go up in flames.

Be consumed by the fire, today!
Exclusively on Kindle Unlimited.

Review – Chasing Romeo by Sarah Ready

57513906. sy475

Chasing Romeo; Soul Mates in Romeo #1 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 25, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic/Road Trip/Second Chance/Comedy

Author: Sarah Ready

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A cheeky, over-top-grand-gesture, loved every moment of their soulmate finding love story!! OMG did I fall in love with Sarah Ready’s writing and this book was adorably fantastic!

Nick and Chloe take a road trip to find her soulmate, the one her grand aunt predicts she will fall in love with, the man she first kissed. Chloe is an over-the-top romantic while Nick is a deep cynic of love. Could the two have forked in the road at their deep rooted feelings…perhaps there was some forking involved…but whatever happened between them was a long time ago and now Chloe is dead set on finding her soulmate whose name is Matt Smith and not Nick O’Shea.

Chasing Romeo absolutely, without a doubt needs to be on the big screen. I could see the entire thing so clearly projected in a movie theatre and is totally romcom movie worthy. Nick and Chloe have tons of tension between all the gigging moments. Each moment only bringing them closer as their road trip spanned across the U.S. Their road trip and situations they found themselves in just keep getting funnier and funnier, while Nick was such a good sport supporting Chloe as she tried to find the right Matt Smith.

While this could be called a slow burning romance, I didn’t even notice because the book was so quickly paced with tons of chemistry brewing between Nick and Chloe the entire time. The laughs were plenty and while this was my first Sarah Ready book and I’m certainly looking forward to reading more in my future. I’m a totally hooked!

Synopsis:

A laugh out loud, soul mate chasing rom com romp, Sarah Ready’s Chasing Romeo is a perfect feel-good novel about finding love where you least expect it.

New Release – Smolder by Emma Renshaw

Smolder by Emma Renshaw  is now live! 

I should have known all along that keeping secrets would burn down my entire world.

One night changed an entire town.

And it wrecked my life.

It was built with secrets. Secrets I kept from nearly everyone. Things no one would expect from the sweet,  smiling girl with a flower shop. Besides my family, there wasn’t a person in this town that knew what I’d been hiding. I’d kept it locked away safely since the fire.

I never expected to be faced with my shame, to have my darkness exposed in the light of day. I never thought Colt, the man who invaded too many of my thoughts, would be the one to bring it crashing down. He asked too many questions and saw straight through me, down to my soul. He unravelled me with one smoldering look. That’s all it took for my carefully guarded world to begin to crumble.

When everything begins spinning into chaos, Colt promises to be there. I want to believe him. I want to get lost in his strong embrace, but I know I don’t deserve him. And he deserves more than all my fractured pieces.

I should have known all along that keeping secrets would burn down my entire world.

Review – Break by Anna Brooks

56565327. sy475

Break; Guarding Her #8 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 6, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Brother-Best Friend/Hero/Suspense Romance

Author: Anna Brooks

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This was my first Anna Brooks novel and I really enjoyed jumping into her world.

While this was a quick read, I thoroughly enjoyed the pacing, the overall plot and all of the characters were highly enjoyable. I’m looking forward to where all of Molly and Brody’s brothers continue to take us in future novels.

Molly is the youngest and the only girl in a family with three older brothers, plus her best friend is the youngest out of five brothers. Molly knows how to find trouble when trouble is to be had. Her entire family worries about her and decides to leave her locked in a jail cell for a night when she’s made one mistake too many.

In walks Brody, pretty much returning to town after a horrible accident and staying with family while he recuperates, and who does he find locked up and needing to be rescued? The one woman he’s never really forgotten.

This adorable meet-cute is actually quite funny and I knew I was hooked not only on this book, but on Anna Brooks from that point forward. What really solidified my new found love for all things Anna Brooks is not only the injected humor, but also the love that both sides of the family showed for Molly and Brody while they worked through their relationship. It squeezed my heart at how supportive they all were. The entire family dynamic is really touching and makes the continued growth of the series something to really look forward to.

Aside from the love that was brewing between Molly and Brody, there is also a suspenseful element to this book. A mystery to solve which made this contemporary romance just that much sweeter.

I was able to read this book as a complete stand alone.

Synopsis:

When I woke up in that hospital bed, I knew my life would never be the same. Returning home broken and unable to do my job anymore, I was lost until she came back into my world.

Though I tried to deny what I was feeling, she made it impossible not to fall for her… and I fell, hard and fast. The problem? I wasn’t the only one who wanted her all to himself. So not only did I have to protect her from a man intent on doing her harm but I also had to tell my brother we were in love with the same woman.

Review – The Rise of Fortune and Fury by Sawyer Bennett

55207519. sy475

The Rise of Fortune and Fury; Chronicles of the Stone Veil #5 
(#5 within a series)

Publication Date: May 7, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Fantasy/Paranormal/Suspense Romance

Author: Sawyer Bennett

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An explosive ending to this epic series!

It’s been quite a journey to see the progression of how Finley’s grown not only emotionally and physically, but in her magical skills and in her deep love with Carrick. Over the past five books Finley has journeyed to new lands, met new creatures, already battled to save her life and those were nothing compared to what she has to face as Finley’s destiny is finally coming to a close. The prophecy is drawing nearer with a battle to end all battles. Will there be enough time to gather forces to help their cause before doomsday arrives?

Finley and Carrick are soulmates and while we know they have found each other time and time again for hundreds of years, will they continue to do so? Will this time be different?

We get a lot of closure to everything that has happened leading up to this final book, while also leaving a couple doors open making me wonder if interconnected books will be in the future. Finley and the whole gang adventure into new realms and we meet a few new people before it leads up the epic battle. There are more unique twists than I was expecting which made for very exciting reading.

There are so many interlocking pieces that have to be pieced together before the end and Sawyer made the entire puzzle fit masterfully.

Synopsis:

It’s time to meet my destiny.

Kymaris has everything she needs to bring down the veil between Earth and the Underworld. If she’s successful in completing the ritual, Earth will be darkened by evil. Demons will swarm our lands and the human race will be decimated.

It’s up to me to stop her.

My fate is to thwart the prophecy, but I’m not sure what to do. While I may have some gifts, I am still merely a human facing the queen of the Dark Fae who holds unimaginable power.

But I have something she doesn’t. Something she could never comprehend.

I have love.

Deep, abiding love which gives me the strength and courage to face down evil. Family, friends, and unexpected allies, who will stand shoulder to shoulder with me against this enemy. Should I fail, they are prepared to go down with me, but only after we have given our all.

My sacrifice may destroy everything I am. Fate may require my demise. But if that happens, I will leave this realm without regret, knowing that I have loved and been loved in return.

The Rise of Fortune and Fury is book five of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

The Revelation of Light and Dark (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #1)A Discovery of Secrets and Fate (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #2)The Evolution of Fae and Gods (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #3)A Battle of Blood and Stone (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #4)

A bet turned into a disaster.
Sebastian Weaver is the star quarterback and the college’s heartthrob.
Rich. Handsome. Bastard.
Everyone’s attention flocked toward him and all the girls dreamed to be with him.
Not me.
At least, not until he made a move on me.
See, I thought I was stronger than Sebastian’s charms.
I thought I could survive being his target.
I thought wrong.
Little did I know that he will make my most twisted fantasies come true.
Fantasies I didn’t know existed…

New Release – Bad Intentions by Ella Frank

Bad Intentions, the first book in the all-new compelling age-gap romance and first book in the Intentions Duet from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank available now!

My name isn’t Logan Mitchell, but Marcus St. James doesn’t know that…

When I showed up at my roommate’s work party, the last thing I expected was to find a man straight out of my dreams. But when the crowd parted and the fates aligned, there he was, waiting for me. Marcus St. James, president of ENN WorldWide News.

Sexy and powerful, with a stare that could freeze you in place, Marcus was the perfect reward for securing a job at Mitchell & Madison, the best law firm in Chicago. To play with the big fish, however, one must become a big fish, and that’s where my little white lie began.

It was one night. I was never going to see him again, and from the second we spoke, I knew he was interested. It was there in his eyes, the same fire in my veins. It was there in his voice, whenever he said my name.

The only problem? It wasn’t my name, and now I wanted more—much more.

But how can anything good come out of something that started with such bad intentions?

Bad Intentions is the first book in the Intentions Duet.

Review – Smolder by Emma Renshaw

54029262. sy475

Smolder; Burn Series #4 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: April 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small town/hero contemporary/friends to lovers romance

Author: Emma Renshaw

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The perfect addition to an already amazing series with feeling, smolder, and facing the ghosts of your past. It’s bittersweet as we reach the end of a fantastic series, but also filled with so much love and heart it couldn’t have ended any better.

In the return to Hawk Valley we finally get Makenna and Colt’s story and it’s everything I could have hoped for in waiting for their story. These two have been dancing around each other for years and the question that even their best friends pondered is if they didn’t end up together, then who exactly were they waiting for?

When Colt first moved to town he wasn’t there long before he knew Makenna was the woman for him. While, he knew she wasn’t ready, he wasn’t exactly ready back then either, but time has passed for them both and while Colt is a patient man he’s finally making his intentions known. He’s by her side, he doesn’t play games and he will always choose her even if he only ever gets a piece of her heart. Colt is supportive, caring and doesn’t patronize Mak while she works through her past, which is totally melt worthy. He’s also bossy and dominate when the moment counts (yum), basically he’s perfect for Mak. Now if Mak will let go of her past, so she can hold on to the present man by her side.

Dialing back to the fire that changed so many lives, Mak gives us a glimpse into the first secret that she’s going to carry with her for over a decade. Not only do her secrets begin to pile up, but they layer upon her grief that began that devastating night. Even though it’s been thirteen years since that horrible night for Makenna sometimes it feels like yesterday. Even when Colt finally makes his move, Makenna isn’t sure she will ever be ready, but she’s lucky that Colt is a patient man. Unlocking her secrets one by one he may just be the man to finally vanquish all of her ghosts and set her heart free.

While Mak is skittish, and she’s very aware of her lingering grief, she never uses it to push Colt away and Colt never digs or pushes for more than she is willing to give. These two are a perfect pairing for where their hearts and ghosts are intertwined. Supportive of each other they will make your heart sing in their budding relationship.

This book is beautifully perfect. Reading the relationship between Colt and Makenna, who not only have known each other for years, but as their intimate relationship grows, it’s intensely special. They not only come to care for each other, but as their unique circle of family and friends grow it’s shows just how special having people who care about you and love you that family is more than just blood. Smolder is touching and will melt your heart.

Synopsis:

The final book in the Burn Series.

West Golden—Fierce protector. The one.

The cocky jock I once wanted to kill with my bare hands is now the only one I trust with my heart.

In a city full of corruption and darkness, knowing who’s on your side gets harder to determine every day. Especially now that Vin’s on the warpath, passing out threats he fully intends to see through to the end. His power here in Cypress Pointe seems limitless, but there’s no time to see if that’s true. I’m prepared to make sacrifices to keep my family safe.

Even if what’s sacrificed is my own happiness.

As our circle of loyal friends becomes clear, we cling to it, because it’s all any of us has. But if there’s one thing Vin didn’t count on, it’s that blood isn’t always thicker than water.

He might just find out firsthand why it’s never wise to cross the king’s queen.

Review – The Hate of Loving You by Maya Hughes

The Hate of Loving You; Falling #3 
(#3 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: May 6, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Sports/Rockstar/Second Chance Romance

Author: Maya Hughes

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

It’s here, it’s finally here!!! The Dare/Keyton and Bay conclusion is finally here!!

Unbreak my heart…anyone else hear this soulful Toni Braxton song in their head? No…just me? Okay…I’m so ready to have my broken heart fixed by this soulful story.

Maya Hughes has written the best trilogy of her career. I’m throwing that out there first. This couple has thrown me over the literary edge, stabbed me full of angsty feelings, and left me a blubbering mess over and over and yet I couldn’t wait to find out what happened to these two people who desperately needed their happily ever after! P.S. The Hate of Loving You is full of the aforementioned, but so darn worth reading every moment of it.

At the beginning of this book, Keyton and Bay are like two rusty cogs who are stuck in their pain and hurt, unmoving from where their past has left them. It’s soul crushing, truly soul crushing to watch them struggle. However, as the rust begins to drop off their cogs and their relationship moves forward, they discover that with the success of their careers spending time a relationship is nearly impossible. Is it really too late for them?

Finding any spare moment they can, between Keyton’s games and traveling, Bay’s studio time, promotions and tour schedule they relearn one another. It’s been a decade since Dare first heard Bay singing in her backyard and they’ve come a long way from those two teenagers, but are they really ready for anything more?

There are so many moments that highlight how perfect these two are together, showing growth for both Bay and Dare/Keyton. While I wanted to weep at the six years they had lost, it was also a time where they gained experiences as a young adult in their careers and who they spent time with, travelled with, etc… which really shapes them into who they have now become.

Some of the best moments in this story, aside from steamy times, were Fulton U pop up moments. All the interconnections were fantastic and I couldn’t have been happier with how the entire book wrapped up. Don’t wait, if you haven’t read the first past of this trilogy yet, start it now so when The Hate of Loving You comes out you will be ready.

Synopsis:

Six years ago, in the dead of night, I woke up to a cold bed and an even colder future without her.

I would’ve followed her anywhere and she left.

I thought I’d moved on and left all she meant to me behind. But a first love is never easy to forget. Even harder when I once felt our love is inevitable–inescapable. And I’ve been proven right once again.

One night brings us back together and derails our lives. We’re sent on a collision course with a future apart and even scarier–a future together. I’m back basking in the warm glow of her gaze and burning with the unquenchable fire of her touch.

We’ve walked this path before and our shattered hearts have been pieced back together. As easy as it would be to run again, I can’t stop wanting her.

This is our final chance to have what we’ve always wanted–each other. Or it’ll be our ruin.

The final book in the Fulton U universe sports romance, Falling trilogy.

Review – Bad Intentions by Ella Frank

57634418. sy475

Bad Intentions; Intentions Duet #1
(#1 within a duet)

Publication Date: April 26, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Duet/MM/Age Gap/Mistaken Identity Romance

Author: Ella Frank

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
So amazingly good, I was smiling through the entire book. I read it from cover to cover and didn’t put it down until I was finished.

Gabe is confident, charming, snarky with just a hint of sassy that made him so darn likeable I couldn’t imagine anyone in his life not liking him or even saying no to whatever he asked for. What makes him even more likeable is that he’s not arrogant or bossy, he’s energetic and carefree while also being pulled together and organized. I want him on my side and totally as my friend any day of the week because Gabe’s energy is completely infectious and I’m totally in love with him.

Marcus is almost the complete opposite of Gabe in that he’s controlling, a complete workaholic, wears a perpetual scowl and knows that his only long term relationship has ever been with his work. While he’s drawn to Gabe and his confident, charming attitude, deep down Marcus knows in the long term, it would never work between them. The age gap alone would worry him, but it extends further than that as he actually gets to know the vibrant man. The closer he gets, the more he wants, and Marcus knows he has to cut ties before he gets too deep.

I was not prepared for how thoroughly I enjoyed this book on a different level than Ella’s other books. Yes, it’s interconnected to Ella’s other books, with some of the same characters popping in, but the last book I read had a whole suspenseful edge to it. While I should really know better than to judge a new book and hold it to those same guidelines, Bad Intentions is just amazingly different in a totally awesome way. It’s witty, and steamy, and full of such charm and passion, I loved reading every page of this book and I’m going to be really sad when the duet comes to an end.

Everytime Marcus was grumpy or grouchy, Gabe basically turned that frown upside down (not literally since I’m not sure Marcus knew how to smile, but in the sense that Gabe was charmed by Marcus’ personality). These two were each others’ yin and yang. I was charmed by Marcus’ grouchy because Gabe was…well, he just made everything delightful. I desperately need a Gabe in my life. ❤ Basically, everyone could use a Gabe in their life and the world would be a better place.

Synopsis:

My name isn’t Logan Mitchell, but Marcus St. James doesn’t know that…

When I showed up at my roommate’s work party, the last thing I expected was to find a man straight out of my dreams. But when the crowd parted and the fates aligned, there he was, waiting for me. Marcus St. James, president of ENN WorldWide News.

Sexy and powerful, with a stare that could freeze you in place, Marcus was the perfect reward for securing a job at Mitchell & Madison, the best law firm in Chicago. To play with the big fish, however, one must become a big fish, and that’s where my little white lie began.

It was one night. I was never going to see him again, and from the second we spoke, I knew he was interested. It was there in his eyes, the same fire in my veins. It was there in his voice, whenever he said my name.

The only problem? It wasn’t my name, and now I wanted more—much more.

But how can anything good come out of something that started with such bad intentions?

Bad Intentions is the first book in the Intentions Duet.

Blog Tour – All the Ugly Things by Stacey Lynn

“This book had me hooked at the first sentence. I have never read a plot quite like this one with so many unique twists and turns. I even shed a few tears for what this powerhouse of a female lead went through. Great read!”
~Audrey Carlan, #1 NYT Bestselling Author

All the Ugly Things, an all-new beautiful and emotional romance in the Love & Lies duet from Stacey Lynn is available now!

One night changed everything.
In a single breath my entire future was ripped away.

Now I’m left simply trying to pick up the pieces.
Endless nights waiting tables in hopes of keeping a single piece of the dream I left behind.

He came for pie with dark eyes and a cocky smile.
But those eyes saw more than they should.
Past my walls to all those secrets I’d long buried.

That should’ve been my first warning.
I should’ve said no when he offered me a job too good to be true.
But I said yes.

Slowly friendship sparked to something more.
Stolen moments became an obsession neither of us could kick.

Hudson gave me more than I’d ever dreamed.
So much of what I had lost.
A home. A family.

I should’ve known it was all a beautiful lie.
I should’ve known he’d only leave me with all the ugly things…

Excerpt

She worked in a shithole diner and probably lived in a shithole place when she was the daughter of a state judge, probably grew up in private schools with a Mercedes gifted to her on her sixteenth birthday and more money than my own parents had. This shouldn’t be her life.
She’s better than this. Better than her circumstance and I believe her. She just needs someone to help.
The memory of Melissa’s pleading eyes made me squeeze my own eyes shut. “Fucking bleeding heart.”
Since she could walk, she had a calling to save everything from kittens and frogs and turtles in the road to classmates and children where she worked.
One last request. Promise me.
I’d wanted to throttle her slim, pale throat.
I gripped the door handle and scowled at the silver-plated handle, before I threw it open.
“Happy now?” I asked, and somehow, I knew she was.
Lilly was still in the back when I entered. Where Dad said she always stood, there was an old laptop with notebooks spread open. I took the seat at the far end and waited, snagging a menu from the counter on my way.
The food was cheap, basic diner food, perfect for the clientele a place like this brought in. Greasy, thick burgers, patty melts, and Reubens. Sandwiches and burgers and two salad options.
It was late enough none of it appealed to me. Probably why my dad came for the pies.
Fortunately for me, he’d said they were the best he’d ever tasted, and I’d inherited his sweet tooth.
The creak of old, squeaky door hinges rang out and I lifted my head.
Lilly came out carrying a tray stacked with food, focused on the four-top. I didn’t move for fear of distracting her. Not a great first impression to make if she ended up covered in grease and condiments.
The guys at the table did more shoulder-slapping, whooping and hollering like they were watching the Super Bowl and not their food being delivered. I kept my eyes on them, waiting for one to give me a reason to put an end to all of them. The dark-haired guy would be first. He sat at the outer edge of the booth and as Lilly leaned forward to deliver a tray to the guy next to him, his hand hovered inches from her backside.
The blond across the table egged him on with a nod but she stood back, put space between them, and barked, “Even think of touching me and none of you are leaving with your dicks still attached to your body.”
“Oohh. I’ll show you mine happily,” one said, hands dropping to his lap.
She glared at him, resting bitch face I was certain she learned in prison firmly in place. It didn’t look right on her. Too hard. Too forced.
What would she have been like as a smiling, happy teenager before life was stolen from her?
Damn it. I felt it then. That pull my dad had when he first saw her.
She’d lost too much.

Blog Tour – Otterly Irresistible by Erin Nicholas

A hot, grumpy wildlife vet . . . and otters. You’re welcome.

Otterly Irresistible, an all-new fun and flirty, opposites attract standalone by New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available now!

New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is taking readers back to the Bayou with an all-new, fun and flirty small town romance series!

Broody wildlife veterinarian Griffin Foster is done. Done trying to save the world. Done getting attached. He’s been fired twice for standing his ground and now he’s going to be content–by God–in small-town Louisiana, in a small veterinary practice, where there will only be small problems. 

Quiet and boring, though? Um, no. He’s been adopted by a loud, crazy Cajun family with a tiny petting zoo for him to care for. Hey, it’s not endangered tigers at a nationally renowned zoo, but a family of otters–and all the gumbo he can eat–isn’t a bad deal. 

Until she shows up. Again. 

The sunny, gorgeous optimist who stole his heart–and his favorite shirt–two months ago. Who clearly hasn’t heard the word “no” enough in her life. And who is the first woman to put even a tiny crack in his don’t-get-attached wall.


Charlotte “Charlie” Landry is the new marketing consultant for the family swamp-boat tour company and petting zoo. It might not have been her plan, but she is all in, ready to grow the business. Whether the hot, grumpy vet likes it or not. 

He doesn’t. 

Worse, sparring with his unforgettable one-night stand is more fun than he’s had in a long time. 

But watching wears-designer-dresses Charlie find her dream job amongst a bunch of goats, alpacas, and otters is a surprise. 

And her helping him find his passion again is…well, irresistible.

Dammit.

Excerpt

He lifted a brow. “Are you going to actually be helpful now or not?”

She loved every single thing about this petting zoo.

“Oh, I’m not going anywhere,” she told him. “I’m definitely going to help.”

He sighed.

Feeling suddenly lighter and happier than she had in a long time—and that was saying something as she was generally light and happy, not to mention on her way to Paris soon—Charlie turned back to the animals.

“Okay, now that we know each other better, how about you all be sweet and head back to the barn?”

Not one animal even looked at her.

“Hey, Stan?” she called to the big goat. “You’re clearly a leader. How about you show me that you can do some good with all that staunch determination and lead everyone back to the barn?”

“You can’t be serious,” the guy said. “Talking to them isn’t going to work.”

“Talking is what I do.”

“No kidding.”

She just lifted a brow. “So what should I do instead?”

Maybe he could give her an opening for charming him into putting that very nice, smirky, sarcastic mouth against hers and…

“Nudge ’em,” he said simply.

Now she blinked at him. “What?”

“Nudge them,” he said again.

“Just… nudge them? As in, push them?” She narrowed her eyes. Were they talking about goats? Or were they maybe talking about grumpy farmers who needed more than a subtle flirtation to make a move?

“Sometimes that’s all they need.”

Okay then. She was going to keep that in mind.

“So…” He nodded toward the goats.

She blew out a breath. Okay, so for right now, they were talking about goats.

Charlie approached the smallest of the animals. He—or she—looked up at her. “Hello, I’m Charlotte. Would you please accompany me across the street back to your barn?” She heard the man’s snort even from a distance. That made her smile even though she was still stuck with the problem of herding goats.

The goat, of course, didn’t move a step.

“I would very much enjoy it if you would grant me the pleasure of your company across the street at your barn,” she told the goat.

This time the goat didn’t even lift his head.

Charlie propped a hand on her hip. “I don’t feel that we know each other well enough for me to actually put my hands on your body, so it really would be easier if you would just head in the general direction of your barn.”

“For fuck’s sake.” Suddenly the man was back beside her.

He bent and lifted the goat, and Charlie couldn’t help but think this had worked out very well.
She hadn’t had to touch the goats, but she hadn’t been entirely unhelpful to him.

Okay, that wasn’t true. She had been completely unhelpful to him. But she hadn’t left him out
here with the goats alone.

The man pivoted and pressed the goat to her chest. Instinctively her arms went up and around it. He let go.

And just like that, she had her arms full of goat.

Charlie gasped, partially in surprise and partially because it only took her a millisecond to think about the fact that she now had a barnyard animal up against her Alex Perry cocktail dress.

“You have to be kidding,” she said to the man.

“When nudging doesn’t work, sometimes you have to get hands-on.”

Charlie blew out a breath. She was tucking that away in her idea of how to handle him too. But she was preoccupied at the moment.

And not so sure she wanted to kiss him after all.

No, that wasn’t true. She still wanted to kiss him. Especially now that he was standing closer.

Even if she had to kiss him over the back of a goat.

Which probably meant she really wanted to kiss him.

Blurb:
Betraying the most powerful man in New York wasn’t something I ever envisioned when I first started playing games with Winston Constantine. But he’s engaged in far more dangerous games than ours, and his enemies are out for blood.
Winston has my heart, the Morellis have incriminating photos, and I’m left with nothing except three stepbrothers who want to hurt me and a future in doubt. I knew Winston wouldn’t be my prince charming, but that didn’t stop me from falling for him.
After all, the slippers fit, and I let myself believe I’d be dancing with Winston forever.
Until too much truth comes to light.
Until I realize instead of ruling the board, I was just a pawn.
In the end, I have only one question. When his game with me is over, will I be able to pretend as if the glass slipper wasn’t a perfect fit?

Cover Reveal – A Gorgeous Villain by Saffron A. Kent

Release Date: June 3

Two years ago, Reed Jackson betrayed Calliope Thorne and broke her heart. So she stole his most prized possession – a white mustang – and drove it into the lake for revenge.

Now, Callie is stuck at a reform school while Reed is off at college, living his life without repercussions.

Until he comes back.

With him comes back all the feelings that Callie has been trying to bury: anger and heartbreak.

But most of all, desire. At the sight of his beautiful but lying lips and his gunmetal gray eyes that still taunt and smolder when he looks at her.

Whatever though. It’s not as if Callie is ever going to fall for her ex-boyfriend again. Or let him corner her in a bar one night and touch her, kiss her…

Neither is she going to kiss him back. Or worse, sleep with him.

Because that would make her naïve and foolish.

Oh, and also pregnant.

And there’s no way Callie is ever going to get pregnant at eighteen and with Reed’s baby, no less. The guy she hates.

The guy who taught her all about heartbreak. Who might look like a gorgeous hero but really is the villain of her story.

NOTE: This story is a standalone and does not contain cheating.

West Golden—Fierce protector. The one.

The cocky jock I once wanted to kill with my bare hands is now the only one I trust with my heart.

In a city full of corruption and darkness, knowing who’s on your side gets harder to determine every day. Especially now that Vin’s on the warpath, passing out threats he fully intends to see through to the end. His power here in Cypress Pointe seems limitless, but there’s no time to see if that’s true. I’m prepared to make sacrifices to keep my family safe.

Even if what’s sacrificed is my own happiness.

As our circle of loyal friends becomes clear, we cling to it, because it’s all any of us has. But if there’s one thing Vin didn’t count on, it’s that blood isn’t always thicker than water.

He might just find out firsthand why it’s never wise to cross the king’s queen.
