VACATION

Cover Reveal: It Happens by Lani Lynn Vale

Zee + Annmarie and Tan + Jubilee.

Forever. No exceptions.

They were to have the picture-perfect life together. Everything was all planned out.

Jubilee was to marry Eitan and Ezekiel was to marry Annmarie. That’s how it was always supposed to be from the moment that they met. Textbook, right?

Wrong.

Eitan and Annmarie die in a freak accident that never should have happened, leaving the two survivors reeling.

Sixteen years later, Jubilee and Zee can’t even be in the same room with each other before things begin to deteriorate. Too many memories. Too much pain. Not enough forgiveness.

They’re like hellfire and holy water, and neither one of them is willing to admit that they’re wrong.

Then one day things change, and all of a sudden, they’re looking at each other like maybe they aren’t each other’s enemies after all.

Cover Reveal: Hotshot Doc by R.S. Grey

R.S. Grey’s next romantic comedy, HOTSHOT DOC, releases December 6th! Check out the cover and find out more about HOTSHOT DOC below!

About HOTSHOT DOC (available December 6th)

Dr. Russell has a bad reputation around our hospital. The scrub techs say he’s cold-blooded, the nurses say he’s too cocky for his own good, and the residents say he’s the best surgeon in the world—really, just a swell guy!—on the off chance he’s within earshot.

I try to avoid him and his temper at all costs. It’s just as easy to admire his sexy, grip-it-while-he’s-ravishing-you hair and chiseled jaw from a healthy distance, preferably from the other end of the hallway…half-hidden behind a plant.

Unfortunately, my plan crumbles when my trusty ol’ boss decides to swap his white coat for a Hawaiian shirt. His retirement leaves me with two terrible options: switch specialties and spend months retraining, or take an open position as Dr. Russell’s surgical assistant.

That means I have to stand near him in the OR for hours on end and anticipate his every need without letting his biting words and bad attitude intimidate me. Oh, and as if that’s not difficult enough, my silly crush on him—the one I’ve tried to stomp on until it disappears—might just be reciprocated.

It’s fine.

I’m fine.

I take my job seriously. There will be no smoldering bedroom eyes across the operating table, no angry almost-kisses in the storage closet. (Well, no more of those.)

What’s the phrase? An apple a day keeps the doctor away?

Maybe I should go for a whole damn bushel.

MY LIFE AS A MIXTAPE Excerpt

Copyright © 2018 LJ Evans

“Okay. But being twenty-five,” she emphasized her age like I should have known it. “And already having a divorce under your belt doesn’t bode well for any future endeavors.”

I turned back to the sky because looking at her was harder than I could have ever expected.

“One mistake doesn’t make you a failure,” I replied automatically but truthfully.

She didn’t respond, and we just laid there watching the stars wink into existence in a way I never got to see in L.A. Here in this part of Tennessee, they were out nightly. And here at the lake, they were stunning. Like her, glimmering…shiny…heart wrenching.

“Look at it this way,” I told her. “Now you get to have a whole bunch more firsts.”

“What?” she asked. I could feel her looking at me now, and I risked turning my head to meet her eyes. They were so pale that it was hard to see them in the darkness that had settled over us as the sun disappeared.

“You know. First time getting drunk…after the divorce. Well, hell, you already did that.” She smiled weakly, and I continued. “How about first date…after the divorce? First kiss…after the divorce. First time making love…after the divorce. It’s like you get a whole shitload of do-overs now but with more experience than you had when you did those things the first time. You can do them better than you did them as a kid.”

She held her breath at my words and stared at me.

Then she leaned slightly forward and kissed my cheek. Her lips hit my skin and filled me with a scent of berries and lake and I had to clench my fingers into my fist to prevent myself from pulling her all the way to me and devouring all of her, not just those sweet, full lips.

“Thank you,” she breathed out as she settled back on the dock and stared at the night.

“For what?”

“For trying to make me feel better. For reminding me that there’s more to life than this moment.”

But as soon as she said it, I was struck with a longing I don’t normally have. A longing to have this particular moment last forever. Because laying on the dock in the dusk with this beautiful creature might be something I could do three hundred and sixty-five days a year. And that was definitely not in any of my plans.

About LJ Evans:

Award winning author, LJ Evans, lives in the California Central Valley with her husband, daughter, and the three terrors called cats. She’s been writing, almost as a compulsion, since she was a little girl and will often pull the car over to write when a song lyric strikes her. While she currently spends her days teaching 1st grade in a local public school, she spends her free time reading and writing, as well as binge watching original shows like The Crown, Victoria, and Stranger Things.

If you ask her the one thing she won’t do, it’s pretty much anything that involves dirt—sports, gardening, or otherwise. But she loves to write about all of those things, and her first published heroine was pretty much involved with dirt on a daily basis. Which is exactly what LJ loves about fiction novels—the characters can be everything you’re not and still make their way into your heart.

Review: This Kiss (Sweetbriar Cove #8) by Melody Grace

Welcome to Sweetbriar Cove: the home of feel-good romance!

Jenny Archer knows that fairytales aren’t real… so when a handsome Scotsman shows up on her doorstep in the middle of the night, she figures there has to be a catch. Like the fact that he’s tall, dark, and emotionally unavailable – and claims to be the new owner of her home.

The last thing Fraser Macintosh needs is drama. He’s traded the flashy art scene for a quiet life working on his paintings in Sweetbriar Cove, but he didn’t figure on his new house coming complete with a beautiful, stubborn caretaker, and her smart-mouthed niece.

They may be unlikely roommates, but soon, sparks are flying between Fraser and Jenny – and heating up the dark autumn nights on Cape Cod. But can Jenny open her heart to this rakish stranger? And will Fraser trade his bachelor life for this unexpected new family?

My Review

“He wasn’t sure why her praise mattered to him, but it did. On a dark night, in an empty house, far away from the reassuring buzz of his fans and hangers-on, her words felt true in a way he hadn’t believed in a long time.”

“It was like gravity had brought them to this frozen moment–some undeniable force that was beyond questions. Beyond words.”

This Kiss is the latest addition to the Sweetbriar Cove Series and is a feel good romance that is sure to sweep you off your feet.

Told from dual points of view, Sweet Kiss follows the story of Jenny and Fraser. Small town living might not be for everyone, but Jenny couldn’t imagine a better place for herself and the niece that she is raising. As caretaker of this amazing house, Jenny has been able to provide a great place to live and focus on the things that matter the most. That focus is about to change when a sexy stranger shows up on their doorstep. It turns out this stranger is the new owner of their home and is ready to claim it for himself….Fraser wants nothing more than to escape the bright lights and stress of the big city and is hoping that Sweetbriar Cove will spark his passion for art again. He doesn’t mean to be broody and standoffish, but he wasn’t planning for Jenny, or having to share his sanctuary with anyone. Sparks will fly and this unlikely trio will find themselves as roommates until Jenny can find a place her and her niece to call their own. Will Jenny and Frazer give into the sparks flying between them?? There’s only one way to find out….

Overall, I really enjoyed this story. I loved how smart and spunky Jenny was. I loved her fierce devotion to her niece Hannah and how she always did her best to give Hannah the life that she deserves. Speaking of Hannah, I just adored this kid. Not only was she brilliant, but she also saw all the things that Jenny tried to hide. She knew how amazing her aunt was and just wanted to see her have some happiness in her life and if being with Fraser would bring Jenny some happiness, then Hannah was all for it. And lets not forget Fraser. Not only was he a famous and talented artist, he also had a huge heart to go along with it. Sure he came off as kind of a jerk in the beginning, but he more than made up for it in the end. Once I got to know the real Fraser, I couldn’t get enough of him and couldn’t wait to see him sweep Jenny off of her feet.

This Kiss is the perfect small town romance to spend your afternoon getting swept away in. There’s passion. There’s light drama. There’s a great feeling of family and friendship. There’s steamy moments and one’s that just knock you off of your feet. All in all, this is the kind of romance that makes you fall in love from the first page and leaves you with a big smile on your face when you get to the end. This Kiss is a terrific addition to the Sweetbriar Cove Series. I loved seeing all the familiar faces and new ones too. I look forward to getting my hands on the next book in this series and seeing who falls under the spell of Sweetbriar Cove next.

Review: Tequila, Tequila by Emma Hart

TEQUILA + YOUR BEST FRIEND + YOUR BEDROOM = UM. WHOOPSIE?

Don’t sleep with your best friend.
Take it from me. I did it. And it was awful.
I-wish-the-tequila-made-me-forget kind of bad.
The problem is, Luke has forgotten. He swears that he can’t remember a thing about that night beyond the trays of tequila shots being set on the tables.
Except I can’t forget. I can’t forget how good his hands felt until I fell over and hit my hip on the dresser, and I sure as hell can’t forget the entire two minutes of tap-tap-squirt.
Awkward. Embarrassing. And the new subject of a couple of dirty lucid dreams.
But I have no intention of telling him what we did. Nothing good comes from telling your best friend he’s the worst guy you’ve ever slept with.
Which makes the tequila on my birthday a very, very bad idea…

My Review

“Against all rational thought and what I knew was right, I wanted to kiss her again. I wanted to feel her soft lips on mine. My hands in her hair. Her fingers wound into my t-shirt.”

“I’d seen laughter. Amusement. Bemusement. Disbelief. Shock. I’d never seen this. Not this darker flicker of emotion I wasn’t familiar with seeing in his eyes. It was deeper…Stronger. Something that grabbed a hold of me and made sure I couldn’t look away. Like a puzzle I wanted to complete. A riddle I needed to figure out.”

“His kiss was pure magic. Straight-up ecstasy.”

“Love is easy. Relationships are hard. But, if you love someone enough, nothing is ever too hard to fight for.”

Tequila, Tequila is the latest laugh out loud romantic comedy from author Emma Hart. This story hits all the marks with humorous moments, sexy good times and characters that just keep you begging for more.

From the moment I picked up Tequila, Tequila I was positively hooked on Aspen & Luke. The very first chapter had me hiding my face and dying of laughter all at the same time. Aspen & Luke have the very best friendship and nothing could possibly shake these two…that is until one night when copious amounts of tequila are involved. This night changes absolutely everything and turns this duos axis totally upside down. I loved watching these two deal with the moments after; trying to navigate their way through all the things. Aspen & Luke had amazing chemistry and I couldn’t wait to see just how their story was going to play out.

Bottom line, Tequila, Tequila was a totally fun read. It made laugh. It made me swoon. I totally got lost in the characters and their story. This is one of the cutest best friends to lovers romances that I’ve gotten my hands on so far this year. Aspen & Luke’s story is funny with just the right amount of sarcasm and sexy. With little to no drama Tequila, Tequila will have you devouring this story in just a few short hours and in the end, you’ll be left with a huge grin on your face. I had a wonderful time getting swept up in Aspen & Luke’s story and am excited to see what this author has in store for us next!

What happens when the cute mountain man you made out with in an ice fishing shack turns out to be your brother’s best friend?

Maggie’s mind is reeling when she discovers the guy she became tangled up with at Marv’s Bait & Tackle isn’t a stranger like she thought.

The big snag: Sam and Maggie’s chemistry is hot enough to melt ice, which makes keeping their secret far more difficult than either expected.

Especially when one of them decides they want this arrangement to be more than just a catch and release.
