The Summer Springsteen’s Songs Saved Me
Barbara Quinn
Published by: Lakewater Press
Publication date: October 24th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary

Coming home to catch her husband with his face between the long, silky legs of another woman is the last thing Sofia expects—and on today of all days. But, after scratching an expletive into his Porsche and setting the cheating bastard’s clothes on fire, she cranks up her beloved Bruce and flees, vowing to never look back.

Finding solace in the peaceful beachside town of Bradley Beach, NJ, Sof is determined to start over. And, with the help of best friends, new acquaintances, a sexy neighbor, and the powerful songs of Springsteen, this may be the place where her wounds can heal. But, as if she hasn’t faced her share of life’s challenges, a final flurry of obstacles awaits.

In order to head courageously toward the future, Sofia must first let go of her past, find freedom, and mend her broken soul.

COVER REVEAL| MEETING HIS MATCH

Meeting His Match
Shannyn Schroeder
Publication date: October 12th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Malcolm “Mac” Sterling has one goal: take over the family matchmaking business. His final obstacle? Host his family’s new dating show and prove he can help each contestant find true love. One catch. Mac’s meddling mother has approved a co-host, a so-called expert who seems impervious to his charms. Now he could lose everything, because if his co-host proves she’s the better matchmaker, he can say goodbye to his legacy.

Natalie “Gem” Hale never intended for her alter ego as an online dating expert to get her the opportunity of a lifetime—or for that opportunity to come with a co-host who’s as infuriating as he is tempting. But she didn’t get this far by backing down from a challenge. All she has to do is keep her secret identity a secret.

Except as sparks fly and the competition heats up, Mac realizes his co-host is hiding something. He’s just got to figure out what.

COVER REVEAL | BEING ALPHA

Being Alpha
Aileen Erin
(Alpha Girl #7)
Published by: Ink Monster LLC
Publication date: February 13th 2018
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

For the first time since Tessa met Dastien, life is quiet. The evil witch, Luciana, is six glorious feet under, St. Ailbe’s is closed due to human trespassers, and people are finally getting used to the fact that supernaturals exist in the world. It seems like the perfect time for a honeymoon.

Tessa and Dastien’s trip to the Caribbean is turning out to be the honeymoon that fantasies are made of—sunset cruises, long walks on the beach, and every romantic cliché you can imagine. She couldn’t be happier. So, when a local man turns up inexplicably dead on the beach, Tessa brushes it off. Not every bad thing that happens in the world is a supernatural mystery to be solved. And when Sebastian—one of the Council of Seven Alphas who rule all the werewolves—appears on the island, she thinks it must be a coincidence. Everyone needs a break now and then. Even council members. Right? Besides, Tessa is beyond determined to not let anything get in the way of her romantic vacation.

But when Dastien goes missing, the honeymoon is most definitely over. Tessa can’t ignore the signs anymore. Something huge is going on. And whoever messed with Tessa’s mate is in for a rude awakening. Because if there’s one thing fighting rogue witches and werewolves has taught her, it’s how to be Alpha.

Review | First Time Lovers

She’s so bad…
Tall, tatted, and tempting—that’s what Max Dornan was.
And she had a bad attitude.
So why is it I can’t stop thinking about her?
About that long silky black hair and those long legs wrapped around me?
I’m a CEO, a billionaire, and a twin. A real nice guy, or so they tell me.
Yet when it comes to Max all I want to be, is bad.

…He’s good
People see my tattoos, my surly attitude and they think they know me.
Just like the suit—Brooks is his name.
He’s tall, dark, and handsome. And he needs my help.
When I agreed to help him out temporarily, I didn’t expect to like him.
I didn’t expect to end up in his bed.
And I never expected to fall for him.

We were all wrong for each other, the bad girl and the good guy. But somehow together, we were pretty damn perfect.

My Review

This is the first book by Kylie that I have read and I must say it was rather interesting.  The book has a great plot but the characters were lacking development in some areas.  I found the main character Max very stubborn and overly sensitive.  There are hints to why she is this way but the story is missing the gap that really develops her and lets you know why.  Brooks is a strong and sexy character.  He often lets his mouth run faster than his brain.  But I truly loved his character.  The book is interesting but could have been longer and more in-depth.  It had so much potential to make a longer novel.  Overall the book is good and entertaining.

Review | His Virgin Payback

His Virgin Payback

by Virginia Sexton (Goodreads Author)
 4.46  ·   Rating details ·  65 Ratings  ·  63 Reviews

Revenge is sweet. But she’s even sweeter.

She used to strut around my office, teasing me with her tight curves and long legs.
Begging to be bent over my desk.
I ached for her, but she was off-limits.
Her father was my business partner, someone I called a friend.
Until he betrayed me. Took everything from me.
Now all I can think about is what I’m going to take from him.
Her.
Claiming her will ruin him.
The fact that her luscious body will finally be mine is just a bonus.
But Lily’s sweeter than I remember.
Her innocence is chipping away at a part of my heart I thought had hardened forever.
I had planned on enjoying my payback …
I just hadn’t counted on her

My Review

This was such a cute read.  It was fast paced and short.

Jacob has been away for three years and he has nothing but payback on his mind. Being wrongly accused him by his partner he has plans to pay him back by taking his daughter. His plan is to use for Lilly and leave her.  But once he gets together with her all bets are off. Will his plans of revenge get thrown away for his feelings?

I love books by Virginia. She is a wonderful writer and most of her stories are short but well written. Her characters are interesting enough to grab you and keep you entertained, so much so that you will not want to put the book down to your finished. This book is no different from her others. It is exciting, intriguing and hot as hell.  If you’re looking for a cute read that will make your toes curl, then this might be the book for you.

Virginia Sexton has been travelling her whole life – Europe, North America, the South Pacific – and prefers to call all of them home. She wrote and illustrated her first story, “The Banana Boat,” at age eight. To this day, it is one of her most cherished possessions.Virginia has two writing companions, her cats, Pepper and Max, and enjoys sending pictures of them to her friends when she should be writing. Her hobbies include photography, salsa dancing, and cooking — especially if the recipe involves ham or she’s whipping up a batch of homemade marshmallows.

She loves strong, sexy men who smoke cigars, drink cognac, and know how to treat a lady… especially when she’s been naughty. Lighting a candle and burning some jasmine incense helps her get in the mood… for the next book.

Virginia writes the kind of stories she enjoys reading — steamy romances that always end with happily-ever-afters. She loves making an accomplished alpha fall hard for his perfect match, and thinks it’s delicious when he must work to win over her heart, while also making her knees go weak and leaving her breathless in all the right ways.
