Release Blitz with Review: A Love Like That by Jenna Hartley

Release Blitz with Review: A Love Like That by Jenna Hartley

A LOVE LIKE THAT

Jenna Hartley

Release Date: December 2

After my wife died, I never expected to fall in love again, let alone with her much younger sister.

Elle’s too young for me, though.

Too vibrant and cheerful to be saddled with a grumpy widower and two little kids.

Besides, she’s only here for a few months before she moves on to follow her dreams.

And there’s no way we could be together even if she were staying.

It doesn’t seem to matter how often I remind myself of all the reasons why we can’t, or shouldn’t be together, my body won’t listen.

Ever since Elle moved in, all I can think about is her. All I want is her.

She restored order to my home. She got my kids to smile and laugh again. Even I’m smiling more.

For the first time since my wife’s death, I feel alive, hopeful.

I already said goodbye to my childhood sweetheart, my wife, and the mother of my children.

And I know I have to let Elle go; I’m just not sure if I can.

MY REVIEW

A Love Like That is my first book by Jenna Hartley and certainly won’t be my last. A Love Like That is an emotional, yet unconventional love story that is sure to pull on the heartstrings of its readers.

Ever since Tristan’s wife died, he found himself floundering. No matter how hard he tries, he feels like he’s disappointing everyone, including his children. When his sister-in-law, Elle, steps in, she’s the answer to his prayers in more ways than one. And so begins a journey of hope, second chances, and learning to live again.

A Love Like That checked off so many of my top trope boxes! I’m a sucker for forced proximity and age-gap romances and this one certainly knocked it out of the park. I also quite enjoyed the forbidden factor of this story. I know it’s not for everyone, but it really worked with this story. From the moment you meet Elle & Tristan, you can’t help but connect and root for them. The chemistry between them is intense and just flows off the pages. The road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one, there were so many obstacles standing in their way, and I for one couldn’t wait to see how everything came together in the end.

In the end, A Love Like That is a wonderful second-chance romance that will leave you with all the feels. I’m so glad that I’ve discovered this author and look forward to checking out the previous books in this series, asap!

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*

Sinful Wallflowers series of novels being adapted for television!!

SINFUL WALLFLOWERS SERIES OF NOVELS BEING ADAPTED FOR TELEVISION

USA Today Award-Winning Author Stacy Reid’s Historical Romances Feature Bold Female Characters

December 1, 2022—Sinful Wallflowers, a series of three historical romances by USA Today award-winning author Stacy Reid, is being adapted for television by Sologne Angelique Productions. Published by Entangled Publishing, the novels—My Darling Duke, Her Wicked Marquess, and A Scoundrel of Her Own—tell stories of women who boldly navigate the many challenges of life in a patriarchal society.

Moving forward, Sologne Angelique Productions’ CEO and Executive Producer Sologne Schumacher will work closely with Reid to create the television series. The production company is also currently seeking a streaming partner.

“Our company’s mission is amplifying the voices of historically excluded creators, and given Stacy Reid’s gifts as a storyteller, we knew she was someone we wanted to work with,” Schumacher explains. “When I read the Sinful Wallflowers series, I knew these were characters the world needed to see.”

Stacy Cantor Abrams, editorial director of Entangled Publishing and Reid’s editor, is eagerly awaiting the TV adaptation of Reid’s novels. “The Sinful Wallflowers books are bestsellers and fan favorites out of Reid’s entire backlist, meaning they represent the very pinnacle of historical romance,” Abrams says. “Now, we’ll get a chance to see these exceptional plots and characters transformed for the medium of television. It’s always an exciting process, and I’m confident these books will adapt particularly well.”

Schumacher’s production team includes Co-Producer Leon Jones, an award-winning producer, director, and writer, and Producer/Composer Marla Harvey, whose most recent work has been purchased by ESPN/Disney.

She will be working closely with the author to create a TV series that both fans of the novels and those new to the franchise will be obsessed with. Leon Jones is an award-winning director, producer, and actor. He is committed to creating space for other BIPOC/LGBTQIA+ artists. His most recent work will be coming to Hulu soon. As their in-house composer, Marla Harvey will create a unique and rich score that makes their show stand out. Her most recent work has been purchased for use by ESPN/Disney.

RELEASE BLITZ: The Image of You by Melanie Moreland

The Image Of You by Melanie Moreland is now live! 

From NYT best-selling author Melanie Moreland comes an epic love story of loss and redemption.

I realized in that one moment something was terribly wrong.

“I apologize,” she spoke, sounding formal.

“You have me at a disadvantage.”

Her hand rose in greeting. “I’m Alexandra Robbins…and you are?”

I stared at her hand and then her beautiful face.

The woman I had loved passionately—desperately—and still loved to this day.

My former fiancée…who was looking at me with no recognition.

As if I were a stranger to her.

And then it hit me as I took in the emptiness in her eyes.

I was.

I’d spent so much time trying to find my way back to her, only to have her not remember me.

One thing was for sure—I would spend my last breath trying to remind her who I was, who we were, and who we would eventually be again.

All I needed was the chance to show her.

Meet Melanie

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of thirty-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She’s learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.

Blurb:

There’s no easy way to explain Micah Lyonne.

As children, we were constantly thrown together by our powerful parents.

And we always despised each other.

Now that he’s a man, Micah is far worse.

More wild and unpredictable than ever.

A hard-core fighter with no moral compass, he lives in the shadows and chooses a life filled with violence.

Meanwhile, I’m the mayor’s ambitious daughter with a long list of responsibilities.

He sneers at everything I stand for.

And I know better than to dance with danger.

But when the inked, volatile Micah comes to my rescue one night, I’m forced to trust him.

It’s a night when I let my guard down.

It’s a night when I reach for him in a way that will change me forever.

It’s a night when I understand what it means to crave a man who is the opposite of the safe future I assumed I wanted.

The two of us make no sense together.

We won’t let that stop us.

He’s all I want and he’s decided that I’m his.

Together, we turn all the rules inside out and set the world afire.

Until someone decides to make us pay…

Excerpt

Copyright 2022 @Susan Renee

“Okay, I lied, alright? Yes. I’m a single girl on this lovey dovey cruise because my wingman of a friend back home fell in love with some girl and thought it uncouth to come away with me for a week. I mean, can you even imagine the nerve of him?” I scoff trying to play off the fact I’m a single loser on a love cruise.

Hottie McBlue-eyes shakes his head as if I’m telling the most unbelievable tale. “What kind of asshole is a wingman for his female friend and falls in love with another girl instead of the one right in front of him?”

Maybe it’s the Corona, but I immediately feel my cheeks blush. “Okay, first of all, I’m going to take that as a compliment, so thank you very much. And secondly, ew no. Joaquin and I have only ever been just friends. Honestly, I thought he was gay for years, but turns out he’s not.” I shrug. “I’m just sooo not his type which is totally fine. I’m happy he’s happy…even if that puts me here alone…and in need of a good lie to tell my friends.”

“Oh, so you’re not really here alone. You have your friends.”

“Well yes and no. My old sorority sisters planned this couples’ trip. So, they’re all bringing their significant others. I just uhh…I haven’t told them that my significant other bailed.”

“Meh, it won’t be so bad. Maybe you’ll find some hot guy aboard to pal around with. “

A snort escapes me. “Yeah. Maybe I’ll meet and fall in love with some hot doctor and live happily ever after, right? I mean stranger things have happened in this crazy world, right?”

Hottie McBlue-eyes chokes on his sip and coughs a few times. “Stranger things have definitely happened, I’m sure.”

I offer my hand to my airport friend. “I’m Adrienne, by the way. I don’t think I ever told you that, and while referring to me as Dildo Girl is pretty damn funny, I figured after holding my pink sparkly dick in your hands, you deserve to know my name.”

Laughing he takes his hand in mine. “Pleasure to meet you, Adrienne. That’s a beautiful name by the way. I’m Aris McElfry.”

“Nice to meet you Aris. I didn’t see you on the plane with anyone either. Are you telling me you’re also here alone?”

“Well, as a matter of fact—”

“Shit. It can’t be.”

What is he doing here?

“What?” Aris watches me, alarmed by my outburst.

I plaster a neutral smile on my face and murmur through my teeth.

“Shit. Shit. Shit.”

Are they seriously together?

My heart beats faster inside my chest and there’s a sickening feeling in the pit of my stomach.

“What? What’s wrong?”

I slowly turn toward Aris and give him the biggest puppy dog eyes I can muster while speaking as softly and quickly as I can. “Look, I know you don’t really know me, and I don’t know you, but you were kind enough to hold my sparkly dick in your hands and that has to say something for the kind of man that you are, right? So, if you would be willing to do me one more hella-huge favor I would be in your debt for like…my whole life…or this whole cruise…whichever comes first and right now my whole life could come first and anyway I promise to leave you alone after this and—”

“Anything.” He interrupts, holding my gaze. “Name it.”

I gulp down my fear and my pride and swiftly blurt out my request with a shaky voice. “I need a boyfriend. Like, right here. Right now. Because the man walking toward us in the yellow shirt is my ex and I had no idea he was going to be here, now I’m horrified I might have to spend this entire trip with him gloating that I’m here alone and he’s obviously not. And to add fuel to that already burning inferno, the girl with him is one of my friends and I had no idea the two of them were a thing and now if I have to tell him I’m alone, I may as well walk off this fucking ship right n—”

Before I can finish my sentence, Aris’s arm slides around my waist and he pulls me into his chest.

Hooooly God, he smells good.

“Stop talking,” he whispers against my mouth. “I get it.” The energy swiftly changes between us and oh, my God it’s hard to breathe. “I’m going to kiss you, alright? Like, really fucking kiss you so that douche sees that you belong to someone else now. Smile at me and tell me quick, is that okay?”
