Release Blitz | I Wanna Text You Up |includes review

Title: I Wanna Text You Up
Author: Teagan Hunter
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: February 1, 2018 
When I put up a ROOMMATE WANTED poster, he was the last person on earth I thought would respond.
He was also the last person on earth I’d agree to let live with me…on purpose.
But, here we are—roommates. I’m certain we can coexist without it being awkward, and I’m determined to make it work. There will be no sexual tension building with each accidental touch, no flutters when he wears that stupid backward baseball cap, and definitely no flirting when we text back and forth.
Caleb Mills can’t be the guy for me. He’s my best friend’s ex-boyfriend.
And that would be wrong…right?

“I Wanna Text You Up was a sweet, sexy and hilariously laughable romantic comedy.” – Aurora *Whoo Gives A Hoot*

This is the second book by Tegan Hunter that I have read.  This book follows right behind the Let’s Get Textual book, picking up where it left off with Delia moving in with her boyfriend Zach.  Zoe puts out a flier for a replacement roommate.

Boy is she surprised when the man who answers that ad turns out to be Delia’s ex-boyfriend Caleb.  The same man that she has been secretly crushing on for a while.  Reluctantly she let’s him move in.  When things slowly progress for the two they decide to give it a go and date.  But Caleb has secrets.  Will those secrets tear them apart?

I love the whole texting back and forth concept of these books.  The first book had me laughing so hard I fell out the chair.  This book continued with the laugh out loud fun.  The text messages filled with sex innuendos is funny as hell and will entertain you for hours.  Who knew a book filled with text messages would be so much fun to read.

The characters themselves are highly entertaining and enjoyable.  Zoe is snarky and fun.  Caleb is a big flirt and seems to have a heart of gold.  Don’t let us forget Mittens “the kitten“.  He is adorable.  Just like in the first book they had Marshy “the baby goat“.  I love it.  It adds to the cuteness factor.

I did feel as if the ending fell short.  I thought it was a bit abrupt, cut short a bit.  Maybe a bit rushed in.  You had this wonderful banter and buildup throughout the book, but it kind of rushed into the ending and I was a tad bit disappointed.

Overall the book is amazing.  It is full of fun, mischief, romance and sexy banter.  It is a steady read with enjoyable characters and cute animals.  It is laugh out loud fun.  I highly recommend this book.  If you want to meet Zoe’s best friend, then pick up the first book.  These are stand alone reads, but it is always fun to start at the beginning.  I found Ms. Hunter to be wonderful Rom Com author and I look forward to reading more from her.

(Wild Wedding #2)

Cassandra Miller doesn’t have time for men. She’s far too busy trying to open a cupcake shop with her silent partner and best friend, not to mention catering her brother’s wedding. And let’s face it, it’s not like Prince Charming is going to stroll into the bakery and sweep her off her feet.

Henry has been a prince his entire life but for one wild wedding he wants to be nothing more than an “Average Joe”, or in this instance, “Average Hank”. However, when a case of mistaken identity and a batch of burned cupcakes ends in a night of passion, Cassie and Hank must decide if theirs is a recipe for disaster or the makings of true romance.

My Review

Ohhhh I loved this book!!!  This series is so much fun!  The romance is amazing and the characters are wonderful and fun-loving.

So this book picks up right after Olivia gets hitched to Cole and are getting ready to open the bakery as partners with Cass.  Of course Olivia is giving Cass a hard time about not taking the time to have a relationship.  Cass puts all her time into work and getting the bakery ready for opening day.  On top of all of this her brother’s wedding is coming up and she is in charge of all the cakes and cupcakes for the wedding.  Olivia suggests that Cass has a wedding fling.  Take time out of her busy schedule and dust off the cobwebs.  When a handsome stranger wanders into the borrowed bakery lost, she is floored and her girly bits are starting to feel warm and fuzzy.  Maybe a fling is what she needs after all.

Prince Henry wants to be normal Hank for the weekend and stay on the down low, to enjoy his mate’s wedding.  When he wanders into a bakery lost he runs into the most beautiful woman he has ever met.  She has flour on her face, hair messy and smells like vanilla.  What he wouldn’t do to get her.   What happens when the weekend is over?

This is a sweet romantic story with a comedy flair.  There is so much entertaining banter between the main characters that it will have you laughing out loud.  The characters are wonderful and engaging.  Cass and Henry have an electric pull that cannot be denied.  The chemistry is strong.  Cass is a fiery redhead, who is shy but has a little vixen in her.  Henry is a  playboy who is used to getting his way, but there is a sense of loneliness about him.

This book is Hallmark Movie worthy.  It is like the Prince and Me all over again, with the perfect blend of humor mixed with romance.  It makes for a real page turner.   With lovable characters and wonderful story plots this book is sure to entertain you for hours.  I really hope that the Wild Wedding series has another book in its future.

My Review

Well another hot read from Amy Brent.

In this book Allie and Steven have been best friends forever.  Classic tale of girl wants best friend to look at her the way he does every stranger.  When Steven comes across her diary he realizes the sexual fantasies that he has dreamt about, she has them too.  When he decides to find out if they are true or not, he is surprised by how amazing it is.  That is till a dark secret surfaces and he doesn’t know if he can forgive her.

The book started out wonderful and let me tell you it is a dirty book.  😉  Who doesn’t like to read a good hot dirty book?  Me, Me, Me!!  Well then I got mad at Steven and him kind of being a complete dick.  No spoilers.  Then towards the end I felt as if the book fell a little flat.  Don’t get me wrong it is a good read.  Especially if you are in the mood for something hot.  But I have to say that this is not my favorite by Amy.   But hey don’t take my word for it try it yourself.  You may love, where I only like it.

My Review

So this is the second book in the series and you definitely have to read the first book first in order to have an inkling of understanding as to what is going on.  The trials are over and the gang must decide if their relationships will survive all that has happened on the islands.  Tempers are high and surprises are a foot.  Can love conquer all?  We shall see as our story continues.  With the book picking right up where it left off, we know of the twisted game the Regime is playing, but we don’t know why or the purpose.

This book is not as dirty as the first book.  Even though during the trials ball they have replays from the islands’ escapades.  This time the book falls more into your thriller category.  With fighting and twisted plots the drama deepens.  I got to say this book blew me out of the water.  It has a huge ass twist that comes right out of left field.  It is so unexpected.  Just pure Holy Shit Wow factor!!!!

I love the characters.  We are introduced to some new key players and get to see the other side of the Regime and his Eminence.  And let me tell you they are not pretty.  They are Evil!!! Pure Evil!!!

This book had me on the edge of my seat in the end.  I was biting my nails and worried with fear for what the outcome was going to be.  A True tale of the fight of Good VS Evil.

I cried my ass off in the end and I am not going to lie, that ending hurt.  WHY???????  Why would you do that????  Can’t tell you why, you will have to read it yourself.  A great book with the perfect combination of thrills, chills, action and romance.  Your interest will be held throughout and you will not put the book down.

My Review

What a great read!!

In this first book of the new series Vested Interest by Melanie Moreland, we are introduced to handsome Bentley.  Bentley is a creature of habit.  He is an introvert of sorts.  His character is described as cold and calculating.  But he is a successful business man with his two best friends as his partners.  Bentley’s business is in real estate and he is on top of his game.  But someone has been outbidding him on some property and that is interfering with his plans on his latest project.

One day Bent goes our for coffee tripping over a rucksack and meeting the most amazing and beautiful Emmy.  She is smart, funny and a spitfire, and Bentley wants to know more.  He has never felt the need to get to know someone like this before.  He finds his self looking to find ways to bump into her.  She is different.

As he develops his relationship with her, his business and his life are placed in jeopardy.  When things get dicey and Emmy is put into danger, Bentley must keep his cool or risk the only person he has ever truly let in.

This story was amazing and had me guessing till the end.  Granted my who done guess was spot on.  Melanie put in enough clues along the way, that is was easy to figure it out.  She has a wonderful story line that holds your attention.  Thrills and chills with a dose of hot steamy alpha male.

I really enjoyed the characters.  The were all wonderful and Melanie really started building her world and characters nicely in this book.  She even gives you bits and pieces into each of  the characters and you can imagine how things will continue into the next books, leaving her readers with the want to continue the journey with her.

I suggest you pick up your copy today and enjoy this book, you won’t regret it.  Especially those hot steamy scenes.  They will curl those toes and make  you beg for more.  Oh Bentley!!!!
