Kiss Me Not; Kiss Me Series #1 (Series)

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

Soooooooo cute!! I love Emma Hart and this book is adorable. I love the banter between Preston and Halley and Halley and her friends and Halley and pretty much anyone in town. I am in love with the small town of Creek Falls and everyone who lives in it. Kiss Me Not is insanely cute fun and I’m looking forward to this entire series!

Every year for the past four years, Halley Dawson has been the kissing booth champion at the annual Creek Falls fair. Not that her competition has been a great hunk to compete against, but still she has been the winner. This year her rival is none other than her long time crush, Preston Wright, also known as her best friend’s brother.

She’s not about to let him stand in her way of winning this year, or let the fact that her long time crush (whom she’s never admitted to anyone) is kissing lots of women, right next to her. Ugh…this year may be harder than ever before.

Preston has always liked Halley. She’s beautiful, smart, caring, basically she’s perfect. So what if the whole town calls her the crazy raccoon lady, everyone has their quirks, her’s was just feeding wild animals.

Preston only signed up so he could get close to her. So what if he had to kiss a lot of other women to do it, maybe she’d finally take notice, maybe he’d finally get his chance, or maybe she’d dodge him every chance he had and kiss him not.

This book is filled with fun, carnival food (so yummy), and lots of quick witted banter.

Review – Brock (7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes #5) by Roxanne St. Claire

46290056. sy475

Brock; 7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes (Series)
by Roxanne St. Claire (Author)

This review is from: August 25, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

Brock, you delicious suit wearing-rule following-Blackthorne man. The attraction was instant – on both Jenna’s and my ends. I loved Roxanne’s easy style of writing which made this one of my favorite Blackthorne books yet.

Brock; the man in the suit who is all about the Blackthorne brand. David; comfortable in cargo shorts and loves his family. Brock David Blackthorne is the ultimate fantasy. The Clark Kent/Superman kind of book boyfriend who easily puts on his suit to do good for his family, then is able to put on his glasses and become the nerdy escort to help out Jenna even when she gets herself into a big pickle. This is my kind of kryptonite when it comes reading…super big sigh over sexy, nerdy Brock.

Brock Blackthorne is a hard worker, loves his family and doesn’t sleep around and the few weaknesses he has are extremely adorable. It’s easy to see why Jenna Gillespie falls for the man so quickly or at least the Clark Kent version of the man. Their backwards relationship is full of chemistry and adds to the ultra sizzle that makes this story really pop.

The overall Blackthorne arc has centered around a secret that perhaps went back to the beginning of the family legacy, but this story in particular really dug around in the history of the Blackthornes giving it an element of suspense and mystery which was a nice bonus.

Jenna Gillespie is a writer who is there to write a kind of “tell all” book on the Blackthorne’s. Brock, who is the gatekeeper for anything that touches the Blackthorne name, gets the final say on what Jenna would publish, but given the night they spent together (where neither one knew who the other was) makes Brock even more territorial than normal. He is also concerned given the events surrounding his aunts recent departure that Jenna could upset the Blackthorne business if her questions create a feeling of instability while digging for clues or whatever she’s looking for in writing her book.

Brock may find Jenna extremely attractive, but he will always put his family first. He decides to stick close to Jenna and monitor her to sideline anything that could be harmful before it becomes a problem. The fact that she’s beautiful and could end up in his bed again is just a potential bonus.

This story was a fantastic addition to the overall series and with only two more books to go, it definitely made me anxious to see how everything turns out for the Blackthorne family.

Brock by Roxanne St. Claire releases on August 29th!

Blog Tour – Broken Knight by L.J. Shen

BROKEN KNIGHT BLOG TOUR BANNER.jpg

“Everyone needs to read this book. ”

– Harloe Rae, USA Today bestselling author.

Broken Knight, an all new standalone about first loves, betrayal and loss from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is available now!

IMG_1621

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.

Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.

Sweet.

Caring.

Charitable.

Quiet.

Fake.

Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language.

Who taught her how to laugh.

To live.

To love.

Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.

Gorgeous.

Athletic.

Rugged.

Popular.

Liar.

This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.

But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.

When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.

Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.

Excerpt:

Right now I wanted to just be here in silence with my best friend. And somehow, I don’t know how, but Luna sensed it. So we sat there for what felt like two hours but was probably a lot less, until I opened my eyes again. Her eyes were closed, too. I watched her for a while.

When she opened her eyes, it felt like she took something away from me.

“Let’s jump,” she said.

“I’m quite fond of my limbs, Moonshine.”

“Stop being such a big baby.”

“Big, quarterback baby who just finished a football season in one piece and would like to keep all his body parts intact.”

She crawled out of the treehouse and settled on the branch. It was thick, but I doubted it could carry my muscular ass for more than a few seconds before snapping. I rolled my eyes and settled next to her. She slipped her hand in mine.

“Three, two, one.”

It was a short, sweet way down.

Blog Tour – Twisted Betrayal by Siobhan Davis

TB - BT banner.jpg

In the power struggle between two elite groups, one feisty girl will bring them to their knees…

Twisted Betrayal, the next story in the dark, bully romance Rydeville High Elite Series from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available now!

TwistedBetrayal_ecover

He thinks he’s broken me. That I’m finally under his complete control. But I’m biding my time, gathering intel, making plans, and waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. So, when an unexpected savior appears—offering me a way out—I grasp it with both hands.

But the man I love refuses to let me go, and he’s hell-bent on protecting me at all costs.

Except he’s far too late.

Kaiden’s betrayal fuels the anger flowing through my veins, and now our roles are reversed—I’m the hunter, and he’s my prey. I enjoy torturing him, lying to him, and letting him believe in false truths that were never our reality.

Until the stakes are raised, and I’m forced into playing their game again. Only this time, it’s not just my life hanging in the balance.

I thought he’d done his worst. That he didn’t have the power to hurt me anymore.

But I was wrong.

His depravity knows no bounds, and now, he’s taken everything from me.

This time, it means war, and I’m taking no prisoners.

Excerpt:

He shoots me a shit-eating grin Jackson would be proud of as he locks the door and stalks toward me. “What the fuck does it look like?”

“Like you’re crazy as shit and have a death wish,” I say, backing away from him.

His eyes are thick with lust, his body cloaked in anger, and he wears it proudly like body armor.

I scramble around desks as I avoid capture. All the while he advances. Like this menacing form hell-bent on punishing me.

Liquid lust races through me, and my core pulses with a desperate need.

I love it when he’s like this.

Looking at me like he wants to fuck me so hard I’ll bleed.

My body purrs in anticipation as my back slams against a solid obstacle.

I know I’m sick and twisted, but I think that’s why we’re so well matched.

He wants to punish me, and I want to be punished.
