Review ~ Love, Sincerely, Yours by Sara Ney and Meghan Quinn


Book Description:

Dear Mister.. . . no, too formal.
Hey there sweet cheeks. . . no, too forward.
*Clears throat*
To whom it may concern,

Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.

I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?

So here I am, being open and honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.

I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. But what they don't know is your bark is worse than your bite. And that bite doesn't scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.

For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees. 

And as long as we're being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you exactly who's boss. 

Love,
Sincerely,
Yours

“I can’t live another day without your hugs and ‘quiches.’”


Both these authors in their own right are hilarious, their senses of humour are always reflected in their own books, and now the reader is treated to both of them in one. I could just imagine the shenanigans involved in bringing this book to publication and can imagine the downright hilarious conversations as certain scenes were written. There are many, many laughs in this book, a heroine you cannot help but adore and friends that egg her on to do something that she would have never, ever done of her own volition.

Peyton has had a crush on her devilishly handsome boss for years. A boss who is a total asshole to all, who walks around the office with a stick up his ass, who is as arrogant as they come and who everyone is afraid of. When Peyton’s crush is revealed in a moment of drunkenness, her friends are stunned and hatch a plan for Peyton to release her frustrations and hopefully have a little fun with said arrogant prick. And so Peyton sends an anonymous email…ending with ‘I want to bang you.’

Rome, ever the rule player, is aghast when he receives said anonymous email. Not sure if this is someone pulling his chain, or actually true, Rome is concentrated on his quest to find the originator so that he can fire them. But, there is something about the email that colours Rome intrigued, and against his better judgement, he replies.


“Rome Blackburn is woods and rivers and adventure. He is excitement. He is an asshole. Rome Blackburn is a freaking prick.”


The emails between these two are hilarious and honest, the banter between them when Rome is still in the dark is an amalgamation of intrigue and restraint. However, when Rome does let his guard down, his true personality shines through, and you definitely get to see the real person underneath the usual frosty façade. The back and forth, the hate/love, the wit, sarcasm and innuendos all bring many a tear of laughter to your eyes and have you championing this unexpected pairing to a happy ever after.


“Pull your pants down, Rome. I’m about to rock your fucking world.”


This was definitely a feel-good read, and I cannot wait to see if these two pair up again because I will certainly be reading.

Release Day Review ~ Beast by Lisa Edward


Book Description:

Life had always been good to me, and I made sure to keep it that way. My mom had given me the only tool I’d need to succeed—manipulation. Add to that the fact I was beautiful, confident, and rich, and I was on my way to having it all.

My name is Annabelle, and I was the stereotypical head cheerleader, dating the star quarterback. The school was mine, and I couldn’t wait to be crowned prom queen.

One night, my world changed forever. All I believed my future would hold was ripped from my grasp in a ball of flames. I lost my identity, my boyfriend, and my friends. Suddenly, I was the monster nobody wanted around.

A scarf hid my true identity, and I was left staring at the beast in the mirror. My appearance now matched the ugliness I once had inside, but I’d do everything I could to prove I still had some beauty buried deep within.

Sometimes, you have to lose who you are to become who you were meant to be.

**Beast is the first in a series of fairytale retelling novels.

***ARC received for an honest review***


“Those who matter don’t mind, and those that mind don’t matter.”


Lisa Edward puts her own spin on the age-old fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast and in turn, turns it on its head. I loved that this book contained a message, an outstanding message, one where lessons are taught and learned and most importantly learned from. How a person can grow from tragedy and rather than let it define them but morph them into a better person.


“I’m too different and people don’t accept different.”


This is the story of Annabelle and Tyler, where beauty is in the eye of the beholder, beauty is only skin deep, and you should never judge a book by its cover, albeit the dust jacket may have been a fair representation of the past.

Annabelle was a hard character to love in the first instance, superficial, bitchy, pretentious and was the ‘it girl’ and she knew it. Every girl wanted to be her friend or be her, she had a charmed life, was spoilt rotten and was one of the girls that came across as totally irredeemable. I had to question where the author was going with this story because, quite frankly, I didn’t want to read about her. I knew that something was going to happen and Lisa Edward did the impossible, she redeemed the irredeemable. By the end, I loved Bella, her metamorphosis was complete.


“Maybe being beautiful on the inside will have to be enough.”
“Oh babe. You were never beautiful on the inside.”


Tyler was one of those guys you couldn’t help but love. Selfless, with a huge heart and it took someone like him to see past Annabelle’s personality flaws. Tyler saw the woman underneath, he saw past the façade and encouraged Bella’s change for the better.

For a short story, this book certainly packed an emotional punch, and at times I did have tears in my eyes. People are so fickle in this day and age, appearances are the be all and end all, and little regard is given for the person underneath. I do feel that Bella was a product of her mother's beliefs and the upbringing that she was given and it took losing something that she took for granted for her to find her inner diamond, after all, even diamonds have flaws.

Absolutely loved this short and its message.

Reviewed by Donna ~ 5 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***


“Don’t invest in someone who isn’t invested in you.”


When a PR friend of mine asked me to Beta Read this book by a debut author, I couldn’t say no, I knew nothing about the author, knew nothing about the book and just went in blind. I find that the best way. When I was reading it, it was truly shocking, to be honest, it was a mess, but underneath the jumbled words was a story that hit me hard, characters that I fell in love with and an authors voice that was an instant hit. I absolutely adored it. Despite everything, the potential this book had was exponential, I couldn’t believe it was a debut as the author had that air of confidence, the banter and dialogue were on point, and the emotion was there in spades. I gave my honest critique, suggested a few things and my parting words were ‘for a debut it was spectacular. ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!! Even a seasoned author would have been proud of that.” Reading the final, polished, pretty version, my opinion hasn’t changed.


“People use words like fate or destiny as a crutch. Like it’s some magical fairy that sprinkles dust over their heads and all of a sudden—poof—everything straightens itself out. Our fates are contingent on our choices. It’s not about the big picture. It’s about the moments in between.”


The flow was perfect, this book moves along effortlessly, and the characters embed themselves into your heart and soul. Character connection is so tough, many authors miss the brief, but Desiree Adele hit the nail on the head with not only her primaries but her secondaries too. Set in college, this sports-themed romance is so much more, with some great life lessons interspersed with a romance that will shred and affect every single heartstring. I loved Dahlia with a passion and Zack was book boyfriend material personified. Both these characters had their issues, and the author dealt with them all with sympathy, honesty and heartfelt emotion. There were no eye-rolls, no clichés just an honest romance that knocked me on my hopeless romantic arse.


“Loneliness doesn’t mean safety, baby. It just means when shit goes down and times are tough, there’s no one there to help you through it.”


Dahlia has abandonment issues, and it is hard for her to put herself out there. Her life as a child was rough and tough, and like the brave, strong, woman she has turned out to be, she fought for everything. Her inner strength is admirable, but the hurt has left its scars, and they are her biggest demons. I loved the relationship she had with her adoptive father, Christos, he breathed life back into her and gave her that fierce determination that made her the woman she was today. Dahlia just needed to learn to love and trust, and Zack was the perfect man for the job.


“I’m ready to play. Zach is the puck and I’m the stick, about to sink him into the net. Game on, Puck Boy, game on.”


Zack was your typical ice hockey player, loved by all, looked up to and respected. The men wanted to be him, and the women wanted to bed him. Underneath the ice hockey persona though was a man with the hugest of hearts. Losing his mum was tough on him, but he loved his dad and brother with ferocity. Zach’s best friend, Keith, kept him on the straight and narrow and always had his back and the friendship that these two had would always stand the test of time. I adored both of them, and their banter was hilarious, but their closeness, like brothers radiated off every scene they were in.


“…in this case, I didn’t have a choice. I was yours the minute you drop-kicked me in the face.”


The chemistry between Zack and Dahlia was off the charts, it oozed off the pages, and that initial hate was a subtle mask for the undeniable attraction between these two. Dahlia knocked Zack on his arse literally and figuratively, and I was championing these two along the whole book. As I said above, this book was a spectacular debut, Desiree Adele is extremely talented, and if every book is like this one, she has a stellar career ahead of her. I for one cannot wait to see what comes next.


“All I’d ever wanted was your heart…It’s just a shame you don’t have one.”

Times Convert (All Souls Trilogy) by Deborah Harkness

Book Description:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches, a novel about what it takes to become a vampire.

On the battlefields of the American Revolution, Matthew de Clermont meets Marcus MacNeil, a young surgeon from Massachusetts, during a moment of political awakening when it seems that the world is on the brink of a brighter future. When Matthew offers him a chance at immortality and a new life free from the restraints of his puritanical upbringing, Marcus seizes the opportunity to become a vampire. But his transformation is not an easy one and the ancient traditions and responsibilities of the de Clermont family clash with Marcus's deeply held beliefs in liberty, equality, and brotherhood.

Fast-forward to contemporary Paris, where Phoebe Taylor--the young employee at Sotheby's whom Marcus has fallen for--is about to embark on her own journey to immortality. Though the modernized version of the process at first seems uncomplicated, the couple discovers that the challenges facing a human who wishes to be a vampire are no less formidable than they were in the eighteenth century. The shadows that Marcus believed he'd escaped centuries ago may return to haunt them both--forever.

A passionate love story and a fascinating exploration of the power of tradition and the possibilities not just for change but for revolution, Time's Convert channels the supernatural world-building and slow-burning romance that made the All Souls Trilogy instant bestsellers to illuminate a new and vital moment in history, and a love affair that will bridge centuries.

I put him in his place. The negative? I missed my job interview because of it. Now I find out he's a rich Australian entrepreneur, and he wants to make up for tanking my interview. 

Yes, he's impossibly hot - but he's also an arrogant jackass - so...no thanks.

Zack Graves had the entire world in his hands. A promising hockey career and the confidence and gorgeous looks that had every girl throwing themselves at his feet. 

Except me. I was only too happy to wipe the sexy smirk off his face while tossing him on his smug ass. 

And he kept coming back for more. 

I kept my scars hidden, until Zack managed to trace the lines straight to a place I fought to keep guarded. 

Zack was fighting his own immortality, his own scars becoming visible the closer we got. He challenged my guard at every turn forcing me to fight harder, only to realize he would be my undoing.

But some wounds refuse to heal.

Scattered Plume (Fallen Flame #2) by JM Miller 

Book Description:

In the wake of death and betrayal, Vala flees the island of Garlin with Xavyn in search of the truth about her identity. 

To find the answers they seek, they must first cross The Divide—a mass of cloud and fog that has separated human lands from the rest of the world for hundreds of years. As they pass through what is meant to kill all who draw near, a surge of magic emerges, bringing death to some and more power to others. In turn, The Divide is weakened, the fog dissolving enough to reveal what lies beyond, reigniting thoughts of war between sides.

But the imminent collapse of The Divide isn’t the only thing concerning Vala and Xavyn. They discover what Vala needs the most is also what the Islain queen had been searching for—a feather. Not only could it help prevent war, it could restore Vala’s immortality despite all she has forgotten. Though there are others also searching, waiting for magic to return, prepared to risk it all for the same immortal goal.

I Like You, I Love Her by JR Rogue

Book Description:

In a lot of ways, I was one of the lucky ones. My high school crush liked me back. It should have been magic and fire, but it was tragic and brutal. I wrote it that way, anyways.

His name was Bryan Winthrop. He was our high school basketball star. The prom king. The most beautiful boy I had ever laid eyes on. He liked me — the theatre geek who never should have caught his eye — but he loved her.

It’s been more than 10 years since the homecoming dance. Since the night he kissed me, breaking both of our hearts for the first time.

After the scandal, after graduation, I left our small town and made a name for myself on Broadway, then in Hollywood. I didn’t mean for the play I wrote about our high school affair to blow up. I didn’t mean for it to reach all the way back to my roots, wreaking havoc, wrecking families.

Bryan Winthrop and I were not friends, not lovers.

But I’m back. And for one summer — if she lets us — maybe we can be.

Rhythm & Blu by SL Jennings 

Book Description:

I fell in love with a boy whose laughter was the soundtrack of my heart. And I played it on repeat until life’s streetlights flickered on and stole him away. 

Riot Blu. 
Top 40 fuckboi. 
Paparazzi player. 
Trashy reality TV trainwreck. 

But once upon a time, he was the boy next door. 

Once upon a time, he was every note in every song on every mix tape he had ever made for me.

Now he’s back. A lot more arrogant. A little more tortured. And more gorgeous than any memory I held dear could do justice. 

I know no good can come from being anywhere near him. But Seattle is only so big, and if I’m going to get the exclusive of my career, I have to swallow my pride, take that dreaded walk down memory lane and agree to his terms. 
Move in with him. 
Immerse myself in his life—the life he left me to build. 
And try not to fall back in love with the man who ripped my world in two.

Medicine Man by Saffron A Kent

Book Description:

Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric Hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns.

It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybe linger on her face a second too long. 

Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly-leashed emotions. Neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face.

No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood at all. 

Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist. 

The medicine man.

Whiskey Sour (River Street Bar #4) by Nazarea Andrews

Book Description:

Calvin Landers is a mess. 
He has a great job and a steady string of men and women in his bed, and has been in love with the same couple for so long he can't remember a time when he wasn't. Coming off fresh heartbreak, he's ready to move on, to give up on romance and sex altogether and moves in with his best friend, Davis, while he looks for something more permanent and tries to figure out what the hell he's doing with his life. 
Ava Liu isn't looking for anything more than something to distract her from the book she's supposed to be translating. Something to distract her from why the hell she's in River City in the first place. But the boys who share a fence are more than a little distracting and pushy, when they realize just how much Ava needs someone--and how much they all need each other. 
Sometimes life happens just when you stop looking.

RELEASING SATURDAY!!!!



Laid Over by SE Hall

Book Description:

In a very uncharacteristic attempt at a little revenge, a little vindication, Lily splurges on a first-class plane ticket… using her soon-to-be-ex-husband’s credit card. If he insists that she travel to him, when he’s the one who filed, the one who cheated, then the least he can do is pay for her to fly in comfort.
But Lily soon learns, the bigger seats and ample leg room aren’t the only things that are better beyond that classing curtain. The company’s more than worth every extra cent.

****
Trevor Kinkade always flies first-class… on his private jet. But the one time he finds himself aboard a commercial flight, he also finds Lily.
Not that he had to look very hard; she’s sitting right beside him.

****
They’re nothing alike, from two very different worlds, except for one huge, perhaps serendipitous, similarity — they’re in the same place, where neither have ever been before, at the same time — because of two, perfectly aligned off-chances.
Or, could it be the chance for both of them to find what they’ve always wanted?

**** Originally featured, in part, in Pick Your Pleasure, this is Laid Over- Lily and Trevor’s story- in its entirety, with refurbished scenes, new scenes, and of course… its HEA.****
