New Release and Giveaway – Love At First Fight by Carrie Aarons

▪️▪️N E W R E L E A S E  ▪️▪️

This summer was supposed to be spent lounging on the beach, madly in love with my boyfriend.
Until he decided to move to Singapore, and break up with me an hour before his plane left.
Now I’m stuck in a Hamptons house share with six of his closest pals, including his best friend … who despises me.

Since the moment Smith Redfield laid eyes on me, he’s hated my guts. I’m serious, I think the raven-haired restaurateur gets physically sick just being in my presence. And he’s never been shy about hiding that fact.

There was the time he cackled when I landed face first in a pile of Manhattan trash bags. Or the night I tried to throw my ex-boyfriend a surprise party, and Smith had strippers crash the bash. Or maybe it was New Year’s Eve, when he got in my face and called me a sheltered goody two-shoes who wouldn’t know passion if it smacked me in the lips.

He’s rooming right next door for the summer months, and I don’t think more animosity could exist than in the hallway of our vacation rental. As if I wasn’t already sporting a bruised ego and broken heart from the way his best friend left me.

But the more midnight run-ins we have, the more I can’t help but think about the way his mouth would feel against mine. With each heavy-eyed glance over the dinner table, I’m starting to wonder if the damaged alpha male doesn’t harbor more than just loathing towards me.

After all, they say hate is the closest emotion to love.
And with the way we’re skating that thin line, it’s bound to burn this whole house down.

New Release – Nerdy Little Secret by Carrie Aarons

💚NERDY LITTLE SECRET IS LIVE!💚

NERDY LITTLE SECRET is now live, and this new release by Carrie Aarons is sexy, hilarious and spins the hot nerd trope on its head! You can one-click now or read it for free in Kindle Unlimited!

“From the chemistry, to the heartfelt conversations, to the fiery hot sexy times and the sweetest of feels, Carrie brings everything to the table in this fabulous college romance.”

Blurb

I’m sleeping with the nerd.
The nice guy.
The science geek who wears periodic table t-shirts around campus.

That’s my dirty little secret, but it began long before he unknowingly transferred to the same college I attend. We met at the summer camp I was mandated to work at, and our hush-hush affair started behind the kayak cabin and in the darkened canteen long after our respective campers went to sleep.

When Mick Barrett, rockstar name a complete red herring, enrolls at Salem Walsh University, we’re both shocked the first time we bump into each other. And he’s … surprisingly cold. With goals and secrets of his own, Mick is closed off and uninterested, something I’ve never encountered from the opposite sex.

My bruised ego has no time to recover, however, when he discovers the real secret I’m keeping, one that’s even more detrimental than our steamy summer fling. Agreeing to become my tutor, and help me save my future, the glasses-wearing swimmer, with the body of an Olympian under that punny math sweatshirt, begins to grow on me. Again.

Except we both have bigger things to focus on than sneaking around. Plus, we’re not made for each other. He’s aiming to be the next doctor of our generation, while I’m just hoping to survive my Saturday morning hangover.

Too bad our bodies, and hearts, start to believe otherwise.
Which has me questioning; can my dirty little secret become a happily ever after?

Nerdy Little Secret 
(A standalone)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A hotmess falls for the hot nerd. This is a great summer read that will give you all the hot feels!

Jolie is a complete mess. Rich, entitled and beautiful – yes, but her life has spun out of control to the point where she is on academic probation and had to serve community service. She is living a lie to keep up her image which is just one more thing to add to her ever growing dumpster fire. The one good thing she really has if Mick Barrett, the boy she met at summer camp where she began her community service, but unlike her feelings for him that she can’t seem to stop, her lies for why she was there are just beginning.

Mick has been driven and working hard to achieve his goal to go to medical school for as long as he can remember. Going to summer camp was his one concession to his parents to actually stop and have fun. He had no idea he’d meet someone like Jolie or the feelings that would follow. However, the summer ended and he never thought he’d see her again, so when he begins a new college in the fall he’s shocked to see her on campus, but that’s not what stuns him the most, she basically treats him like he doesn’t exist and after how close they were over the summer he gets a look at the real Jolie.

While Jolie is on probation she needs help getting back into college and Mick agrees to help tutor her much to his own astonishment considering her initial treatment of him. Jolie has a lot of apologizing to do, but it does come at a cost of him knowing part of her secret, so things do even out, sort of. While Mick holds the power to blow up her entire world, at his core he’s a nice guy, so the chances of him doing so are small, but who likes giving anyone power, right?

While they both agree to keep things casual, nothing more should come of a relationship since Mick has a lot on his plate too, pushing himself to the brink of classes, an internship, tutoring Jolie, and keeping up with his father’s illness (the reason he’s entering the medical field) Mick runs thin. Anyone could break under the pressure, even the nicest guy in the world.

Two opposites who actually ground each other, complete each other, but they each have to figure out what’s more important as they face their future. Whether it’s together or apart.

Read Kay’s Review  – Fool Me Twice

Blurb:
When my best friend died of cancer just before her eighteenth birthday, she left her coveted bucket list to me.

The things she already crossed off? Skinny dipping, going to Paris, completing the local hot wing challenge, road tripping to the ocean, and sending out a message in a bottle.

So, it falls on me to finish it for her, to honor her memory. In the next year, it’s my mission to:

1. Dye my hair
2. Have sex
3. Camp out in a tent
4. Go bungee jumping
5. Get revenge on Lincoln Kolb

Most are doable, some terrify me, and then there is the last item on the list. When the raven-haired football god dumped my best friend during senior year of high school, she was devastated. The jerk with charm for days found out she was sick, and betrayed her in the worst way possible.

But he doesn’t know me, I went to school a town over. Now, to fulfill my promise, I’m the newest freshman on the campus where he is the big man. If there is one thing, aside from cheap beer, that a jock can’t pass up, it’s a shiny new girl.

So when I catch his eye, play hard to get, and then fall into his bed, I know my scheme is working to perfection. But what Lincoln can’t see coming is the beatdown I have planned for his ice-cold heart.

Unfortunately, what I never saw coming was the one he had planned for mine.

Excerpt:
Look at him, strutting through campus like he’s got his dick in his hand, and every girl wants a taste.

Jesus Christ, he’s preening more than a world-class peacock.

I pull my sunglasses down to the bridge of my nose, peering over them as Lincoln Kolb swaggers his way through the Warchester Campus quad. There are two other bros flanking him, big beefy guys who wear the same smug, shit-eating grins as their leader. How the guy is already a legend, by the way guys fist bump him and girls fawn as he walks by, escapes me.

It’s like that scene in Beauty and the Beast when Gaston sweeps into town. All of his idiotic, adoring fans practically crawl on their knees in his wake.

Only this time, Lincoln Kolb may be their god, but I’m here to bring him crashing back down to earth.

Fool Me Twice 
(A standalone)

by: Carrie Aarons

Review Rating:

 

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Fool Me Twice will touch on emotion possible. A reverse bully/sports romance that is very well written. Everything about this book will stick with you days after you’ve read it.

Right off the bat Fool Me Twice is emotional. A teenage girl, Henley, is in the emotional depth of having just lost her best friend to cancer. The heavy weight of what she is feeling right at the moment sets off why she carries the vendetta for the remainder of the book and it’s a good reminder, even when you question why Henley would continue such a path. She isn’t a bad person, she is wrapped up in grief and grief will ultimately make you do some crazy things.

In a romance industry that is saturated with bully romances, I loved that Carrie Aarons reversed this idea and gave us a female bully. Henley sets out to destroy Lincoln, that is her main purpose. She may use different tactics than a male bully would, but honestly, as a female character, that is the point. Women are different and luring men in to whatever purpose and catching them is an entirely different process then men would use. For instance, there is a conversation between Lincoln’s friends about how frustrating women are (Lincoln has been trying to figure out why Henley is so hard to pin down – which is her ploy) and all of these men are talking about how to win women over which is a classic conversation in itself, especially when one of his friends misquotes the common phrase “men are from Mercury and women are from Venus”.  He thinks Mercury is closer to Venus so Mars already doesn’t makes sense to him so why compare planets to people. You see what I’m getting at? Lincoln is baffled by Henley just as much as his friends don’t understand women. Yes, this book is funny on top of pulling at your emotional heartstrings. You will fall in love with Lincoln along with falling in love with Henley (the girl who you might want to hate).

Even though Henley is cast as the bully, she is loveable and is hurting from losing her best friend. While she is there to break Lincoln’s heart, she isn’t really malicious about it. Their relationship is one that grows organically and Henley constantly has talks to herself about what a potential bitch she might be for what her ultimate goal is. So, like I said, while I call this a reverse bully romance, because ultimately the end result is the same, you also side with her some of the time. Like any good bully romance I did question the bully a lot…you might even want to throw your book across the room and just so you have time to  process her evil plans. Oh, yeah, that’s when you know the story is that good, right!

Lincoln and Henley are wonderful characters and their friends round out the book to make this a full, rich story. You will really love this book from beginning to end, no doubts about it.

Synopsis:

When my best friend died of cancer just before her eighteenth birthday, she left her coveted bucket list to me.

The things she already crossed off? Skinny dipping, going to Paris, completing the local hot wing challenge, road tripping to the ocean, and sending out a message in a bottle.

So, it falls on me to finish it for her, to honor her memory. In the next year, it’s my mission to:

1. Dye my hair
2. Have sex
3. Camp out in a tent
4. Go bungee jumping
5. Get revenge on Lincoln Kolb

Most are doable, some terrify me, and then there is the last item on the list. When the raven-haired football god dumped my best friend during senior year of high school, she was devastated. The jerk with charm for days found out she was sick, and betrayed her in the worst way possible.

So when I catch his eye, play hard to get, and then fall into his bed, I know my scheme is working to perfection. But what Lincoln can’t see coming is the beatdown I have planned for his ice-cold heart.

Unfortunately, what I never saw coming was the one he had planned for mine.

Book Blurb:

Love is weakness.

Which is why Annabelle Mills vowed a long time ago to never let it destruct her. A former pageant queen with a bite equally as lethal as her bark, she’s interning at her dream job on the set of the highest-rated home design show on television. Everything in Annabelle’s life, though it may be cold and isolated, is going exactly as she always planned.

Until her ex-high school sweetheart moves to town. The same boy that she cheated on, once upon a time, essentially breaking both of their hearts. But no one knows the full story, and being vulnerable enough to open up about it is not on Annabelle’s checklist.

Hate is fuel.

The kind that courses through Boone Graham’s veins and allows him to shut out everyone around him. As the hottest rookie on Austin’s professional baseball team, he should be spending his days hitting homeruns and signing jerseys. Except he’s seen dreams ripped right out from under those closest to him, leaving them with nothing.

Without a college degree, he’ll never take the risk of pursuing his real dream. But when he runs into the girl who took a mallet to his heart and stopped it beating, attending the same university might just be the biggest challenge he’s faced yet.

As the semester unfolds, the line between love and hate is blurred. And with the amount of baggage stacked between them, together is the last thing they want to be.

That’s the thing about hearts, though. They develop plans all on their own.

New Release – The Tenth Girl

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: The Tenth Girl
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: New Adult/Young Adult
Release Date: September 9, 2018

BLURB

Never play a game you can’t win.

For Cain Kent, that rule is golden. Losing is not in his vocabulary, and up until now, everything has come easy. Football, school, girls … his charm-laced ego may just be bigger than Texas itself.

The competition he started freshman year with his friends, to make ten notches each in their bedposts by graduation day, is practically in the bag. One more to go, and then it’s off to college fame and eventually, the big time. Attachments aren’t something he wants to form, but when the quiet new girl challenges him in front of his classmates, his curiosity is peaked. She would be the perfect final score, and what fun to break her in the process.

Too bad Harper Posy has no intention of being just another warm body, especially to the bad boy quarterback. Even if he does quote Forster and Huxley when no one is listening. An aspiring author herself, Cain and his hidden soft side are dangerous to her heart. She’s seen men ruin her mother’s dreams time and again, and she’s determined to fly far away as soon as she has that diploma in her fist.

But as the school year’s end looms closer, both realize they didn’t quite understand the rules to begin with. Is winning a dirty bet worth the gamble when the stakes, or the other’s heart in this case, are so high?

Harper is the one girl who isn’t up for playing games. And she just might make Cain lose. Everything.

New Release – Save the Date

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Save the Date
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 24, 2018

BLURB

You know that pact you make with your childhood best friend of the opposite sex? The one where, if you’re both still single, lonely and hopeless at thirty, you’ll marry each other?

This is the story about what happens when you hit the big three-oh and have to make good on that pinky promise.

Personally, I think love, romance and all of that nonsense is a crock of, well, you know. And Reese Collins, the boy who used to put worms in my hair at backyard barbecues, knows that better than anyone.

But when he moves to the same city I’ve happily, and singly, inhabited for years, memories of oaths past resurface. Reese is like a dog with a bone; a really hot dog and that bone just happens to be me.

He won’t stop hounding me, and the crazy thing is, my frigid, traitorous heart is starting to cave. For my best friend.

It seems so far off, when you’re a kid playing Monopoly in your treehouse. But when that clock strikes midnight on your thirtieth birthday, and you’re standing alone in front of a grocery store-bought cupcake, a childhood deal to walk down the aisle doesn’t seem so silly anymore.

Review – Save The Date

Save The Date (Standalone)
by Carrie Aarons (Author)

This review is from: June 21, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

An adorable friends to lovers romcom. Erin’s sarcastic humor is LOL funny and Reese is so adorable they are a couple to root for.

Erin Carter is sarcastic to the core, a doesn’t-believe-in-love ice queen (or so she believes). Determined that she will never find the right man (since love doesn’t exist anyway) she gave up on the notion of ever getting married, but begins to worry when her 30th birthday rounds the corner and the pact she made as a child with her best friend, Reese, springs to mind. If neither one of them were married by their 30th birthday then they were to marry each other.  It might not have worried her too much if he wasn’t single, didn’t happen to be moving back to the hometown where she was currently living, and just recently emailed her asking to meet. There was no way he would make good on that pinky sweat would he?

Reese Collins loved his job as a NICU nurse. No he isn’t gay. That was usually the first question people asked when he began a new job. Moving back home to begin work at one of the top hospitals in the NICU field was a dream of Reese’s and the fact that it was happening right before his 30th birthday was just a mere coincidence. There was hardly a day that went by that he didn’t talk or text his best friend, Erin, and he wouldn’t lie and say that the thought of marrying her wasn’t something he’d always thought about since they’d made their pact as kids. Why had he never made a move on her until now? Well, their timing just was never right so he kept his feelings to himself because having Erin in his life was better than not, but it’s now or never. It’s finally time to collect.

When Reese pushes for them to move their friendship beyond the friend zone, both of them are amazed and scared at what could happen once they cross that border. How do you date a person you already know everything about and how do you go back to being friends if things don’t work out?

New Release – When Stars Burn Out

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: When Stars Burn Out
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Contemporary Adult
Release Date: April 22, 2018

BLURB

Stars die in one of two ways.

So slowly that each layer burning out feels like agony … or suddenly, exploding into a million pieces before the universe even has a grasp of what is happening.

When Paxton Shaw left Demi Rosen without so much as a goodbye, he stole her shine in both manners.

Now, eight years later, he’s trying to pull her back into his orbit. The nation’s most beloved football player, a tight end with a seriously tight end, has finally realized Demi is the one who got away.

But she’s a different woman than the weak girl who used to come running whenever he called in the middle of the night. Strong, successful, her life’s mission being to grant the wishes of children whose flames have all but been extinguished.

And untouchable, as dark and cold as a midnight sky with no moon in sight.

When one special child forces their star-crossed paths to collide, it’s impossible to keep the feelings of their past buried. Paxton had been her Halley’s Comet; the once in a lifetime love that scorched Demi’s heart in the most spectacular of fashions.

She promised herself she would never make that mistake again. But, how can she forget the dreams of love she once had, when Paxton wants to make them come true?

Title: Elite; A Privileged Novel
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: New Adult Romance
Available Now!!

Blurb
If you’re in, you’ll never have to ask. If you ask,you’ll never be in.

Eloise Mason knows what it’s like to live among the privileged. Seeking a
change from the upper crust society of Europe, she flies halfway across the
world for a semester abroad in the one place guaranteed to toss responsibility out the window and provide some good, old-fashioned fun; college in The United States.

Except nothing at the picturesque, Ivy-covered university in Vermont appears as it seems. And after a mysterious invitation arrives on her doorstep, curiosity wins over the need to turn her back on games meant for the rich and ruthless.

Secret societies, risky tasks, and an inner circle to rival the royals. But it
may just be one American boy who threatens to be the most dangerous endeavor of all.

Colton Reiter defines the word idolized at Jade Mountain University. In fact,
he practically rules the roost from the three point line of the basketball
court. The college’s star point guard, he is a god and treated as such;
professional scouts at every game, teachers looking the other way when it comes to grades, and girls falling into his lap at the snap of a finger. He wants for nothing, or at least that’s what he wants everyone to believe.

But when he meets the sassy girl with the British accent who could care less
about his status, her very existence threatens to unveil the skeletons buried
deep in the back of his closet.

With stakes this high, and hearts on the line, can they turn their backs on
power and popularity before the ivory tower comes crashing down on their heads?

Elite Has All the Twists and Feels For the Perfect NA Book

Elite; A Privileged Novel  (Series)
by Carrie Aarons (Author)

This review is from: February 12, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Eloise Mason comes to America looking for the “American” college experience, while basically escaping the pressure of her high society life in Europe. Her life has been nothing but a whirlwind since her father became one of the biggest names in film, pulling them from poverty into an elite status few can only dream about.

When Eloise steps onto Jade Mountain campus she can feel herself breathe again, the private college allowing her to escape the busy lifestyle she’d become accustomed too, but when she enters her dorm room a mysterious envelope awaits her, a cryptic message inside. “If you’re in, you’ll never have to ask. If you ask, you’ll never be in.” Eloise finds herself intrigued by the mystery and pulled into a world where only the elite are welcome, but at what price

Never expecting to meet someone significant, just perhaps make some acquaintance’s in the short time she knew she’d be there, Eloise never expected to meet Colton Reiter. A forceful attraction she has a hard time resisting. Between the mystery she feels she needs to uncover and the attraction she has a hard time denying, Eloise is in for one hell of a semester.

Colton Reiter is a god at Jade Mountain University, or at least that is how he is treated by pretty much everyone who attends there. He wants for nothing, desires little, and can’t seem to lose when he’s on the basketball court.  In fact he’s almost grown board of his life, that is if he wasn’t living a lie. As it turns out, Colton has a secret, a huge secret that most likely will get him thrown out of school, kicked off the team, and make sure he loses all chances of ever having an NBA career, but who’s keeping track of all that when a beautiful British girl walks into his sights.

Eloise is the one person who doesn’t bow down to Colton’s feet. She doesn’t even give him the time of day. She conveniently makes him forget all of his troubles which is exactly what he needs and he soon finds himself addicted.

With mystery, secrets, and a love story unlike any other, Elite will pull you in and keep you enthralled until the very end. It has heart and reiterates the belief that even when the world is against you, the right people will always love you, especially when you stay true to yourself.

Kara

High school sweethearts. What a load of bull.

He might have been my first love, but it never meant I wanted to hear lyrics containing my name, love story, and *cringe* how I lost my virginity peddled out for the masses to digest.

Seven years later, and I’m still being haunted by his photo in every magazine, his music on every radio station. I thought breakups meant that you never had to see the person again. Especially when they ripped out your heart and made hamburger meat with it.

But when a chance encounter ends up going viral, I’m tied to him in a way I’ve always dreaded. And the last person on earth I’d want to spend an hour with, much less a lifetime, makes me an offer I can’t refuse. I might just be desperate enough to take it.

Dean

The girl in the song is real. And she’s made me a rich man

I’ve been dedicating choruses to her for a decade, she’s the muse she never wanted to be. Off of our love, I’ve become famous … and a complete egomaniac

When another one of my flings goes off the rails, and lands me in hot water with the media, my recording label is less than thrilled. And so comes the marching orders from my agent; devise a scheme to transform into a squeaky clean good guy

Coming face to face with her is something I’ve only dreamed about. If not to win her back, then to at least apologize for the ways I’ve exploited her. Instead, I rope her into my madness, proposing a deal only a masochist would accept.

When another one of my flings goes off the rails, and lands me in hot water with the media, my recording label is less than thrilled. And so comes the marching orders from my agent; devise a scheme to transform into a squeaky clean good guy

Coming face to face with her is something I’ve only dreamed about. If not to win her
back, then to at least apologize for the ways I’ve exploited her. Instead, I rope her into my madness, proposing a deal only a masochist would accept.

Author Bio


Author of romance novels such as Red Card and All the Frogs in Manhattan, Carrie Aarons writes sexy, swoon-worthy, sarcastic characters who won’t get out of her head until she puts them down on a page.

Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book, and can’t imagine a better or more maddening profession.

A lover of good manicures, Riesling and the beach, she enjoys chasing her puppy
through the dog parks of New Jersey, or trying to make her husband binge watch
the latest Netflix craze.
