Release Blitz with Review: Revelry by Kandi Steiner

Title: Revelry
Author: Kandi Steiner
Release Date: April 20, 2017
Add to TBR

From the bestselling author of Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey

Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.

She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.

Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.

Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.

He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.

Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.

 

My Review

“Anderson is a good man, he just has scars like all beautiful and tragic things in life.”

“I was beginning to realize that there was no one path for love, no right or wrong way. Maybe I wasn’t broken after all, maybe I was only learning to walk on a new kind of path, a gravel road my tender feet had yet to master. And though I knew the night would usher in darker thoughts, ones of failure and uncertainty, I smiled despite them. Because right then, if only for a moment, it felt like everything would be ok. I would be ok.”

“For the first time in my life, I was completely aware of my existence. I felt my heart beating, pumping blood, pushing me forward despite the inadequacy and thoughts of failure that had been trying to cripple me. I was alive. I was okay. And I knew I’d never be the same again.”

What a beautiful, beautiful book. If ever there was a book that would have such an emotional impact and take your heart on a crazy journey, this is that book.

Revelry is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Anderson and Wren. Wren is fresh off a divorce and is at a crossroads in her life. She’s no longer inspired. She doesn’t know who she is or what she wants out of life. So, when the opportunity to spend the summer in mountains outside of Seattle comes up, Wren can’t help but jump at it. Nothing like a little peace and quiet to help you find yourself again. What Wren never planned on or saw coming was Anderson. Anderson is man of very few words and is lost in guilt from the past. Life is just passing him by…that is until Wren blows into town. She is the light that Anderson has desperately been missing. But his heart has been hardened by the fears of the past. He keeps his distance and tries to keep Wren at bay. But somewhere along the way, Anderson has slowly been coming back to life. He is no longer the shell of a man. Wren has brought the life back into his eyes. Will Anderson be able to let go of his guilt and have a future he never expected? Will Wren’s time over the summer give her all the answers that she was looking for? You’ll just have to read this book to find out for yourself.

Revelry is incredibly well written and will pull you in from the very first page. From the moment I picked up this book, I was sucked in to Wren’s story. Wren was so incredibly easy to connect with and understand. I think everyone can relate to feeling lost at one point in their life and questioning everything they thought they knew. I thought Wren was incredibly brave, not only to survive a divorce, but to try to start over again. Her feelings were very real, and I couldn’t help but root for her to find some peace and the answers that she was looking for. I loved her spirit and outlook on life as well. And Anderson….Ugh! My heart went out to this troubled man. I loved how imperfect he was. He had flaws and a broody demeanor, but there was so much more to this man than meets the eyes. He had a lot of anger and sadness that he kept inside and he just needed to take a risk and let someone in.

I was really excited about Wren and Anderson together. I loved the tension between the two of them. I loved their pull and their fight. And the chemistry between them was such a real and powerful thing. Seeing them together and going through all the motions, navigating their way through everything, gave me so many feels. Ugh! I just couldn’t get enough of them.

Honestly, I just really loved this book. From the writing to the characters to the story-line, I was hooked. Revelry gave me everything I was looking for and had the perfect mix of angst and romance. This story played with my emotions and took me on one fantastic journey.  Revelry is so much more than just a second chance romance. It is a story about finding yourself and letting go of the past. It is a story of forgiving yourself for things that are beyond your control. It is a story of hope and moving past your fears. But, most of all, it is a story of love. And I loved every single moment.

I had just grabbed my oversized hat and slipped my sunglasses on when I spotted Anderson walking up the drive with a large trash bag slung over his shoulder. He wore a simple, black V-neck and distressed jeans, an outfit way too dark and hot for the heat. A light sheen of sweat gathered on his neck as he made his way toward my cabin, his eyes hidden behind all-black sunglasses.

“Change your mind?” I asked, not even fighting the grin on my face as I walked outside and leaned against the banister.

Anderson squinted up at me, his boots heavy as they hit each stair. “About?”

“Tubing?” I asked. That was why he was here, right?

“Oh.” He shook his head as he hit the top stair, shrugging the bag off his shoulders to hold it by the neck in one fist. “No, I have somewhere to be…” His voice trailed off, and even through the tinted shades of his glasses I felt his eyes on my chest. I’d strapped on my favorite boho print bathing suit and paired it with a dainty gold chain that wrapped around my neck once before dipping between my chest and crossing over my ribs.

He sniffed, holding the bag out toward me. “I just came to drop these off. My clothes. Well, the ones that could probably use a little TLC.”

My eyes lit up and I reached for the bag, but Anderson snatched it back, brows shooting up into his forehead.

“No frills, Wren.”

I threw my hands up in surrender. “I promise.”

He smirked, just slightly, and handed the bag over, tucking his hands in his front pockets.

“Are you sure you don’t want to come?” I asked, peering into the bag at my project before setting it just inside the cabin and locking the door behind me.

“I can’t,” he said, lips pressed together. He was tense, the muscles on his forearms tight as he glanced around at pretty much everything but me.

I opened my mouth to ask why but was cut off by the sound of a truck flying into my drive, tires sliding against the gravel.

Tucker was in the driver’s seat with Davie in the passenger. Sarah and Yvette sat in the back, laughing with their hands up as the truck skidded to a stop. They were both sprawled out on a pile of tubes, wearing bathing suit tops and tiny shorts.

All of their faces froze when they saw Anderson.

“Hey, you ready, Wren?” Tucker asked warily, his eyes moving from where Anderson stood in front of me, to me, and back again.

“Yeah, one sec!” I called back.

I turned to Anderson, but his eyes were hard on Tucker, jaw ticking under his skin. When he faced me once more, an anchor fell from my throat into the pit of my stomach, immobilizing me completely. Because even though I ‘d tried to convince myself I was wrong, I recognized the look in his eyes.

Possession.

And when his nose flared and he took one big step toward me, our chests brushing, his hand reaching out to rest almost imperceptibly on my hip, the anchor in my stomach exploded into flames, burning a desire so fierce I inhaled a toxic breath and didn’t let it go.

“Be careful, okay?” His eyes locked on mine just before he leaned in and swiftly kissed my cheek.

He turned on his heel and jogged down the stairs and past the truck. Sarah called his name, but he didn’t acknowledge her, just kept his gaze forward until he’d disappeared from view.

And then everyone looked at me.

Review: Restrained Under His Duty (Dirty Little Secrets #3) by Stacey Kennedy

restrained

As the chief of security for a prominent senator, Ryder Blackwood is stunned when an anonymous source sends him a compromising photo of his boss’s twenty-five-year-old daughter getting down and dirty in an underground sex club. If it gets out, the media firestorm could ruin her father. More troubling for Ryder is how arousing he finds the whole situation. He’s known Hadley Winters since she was a kid. And now she’s the woman in all his most private fantasies.

Wild behavior helps Hadley get through those painful, lonely nights, but she’s been waiting a long time for a man like Ryder to protect her from herself. Ryder is raw. He’s real. And he makes her feel safe. Now that they’ve both become pawns in a blackmailer’s dangerous game, there’s more at stake than her father’s political career. As the intimate threats tear apart a tender new love, Hadley is forced to trust Ryder with her life—and her heart.


My Review

“Something carnal rises within me, something I can’t control. It’s here beauty. It’s the perfection of the way she sounds, the scent of her, the feel of her…”

“Sometimes life happens, and reckless or not, you just gotta roll with it.”

This is one of those series that I just can not help but fall in love with. With each book, I find myself even more addicted to the character and their stories.

Restrained Under His Duty is the third book in the Dirty Little Secrets Series and can be read as a stand alone novel. Restrained Under His Duty follows the story of Ryder and Hadley. Hadley has wanted Ryder for as long as she can remember. Even back when they were little kids, she knew that one day Ryder would be the man that she married. But there is just one problem. Ryder is her father’s bodyguard. Despite the intense attraction that they feel for one another, nothing can ever come of it. Ryder is everything that Hadley could ever want in a man and his rejection sends her to dangerous places to fulfill her needs…Ryder takes his security job very seriously. So, when a compromising photo of Hadley comes to light, he’ll do anything to protect her. However, this photo and the situation Hadley is in is bringing to light all the feelings he keeps at bay. He wants Hadley more than his next breath, but she is forbidden. And when Hadley gets put in danger, he wants nothing more to protect and possess her…

Restrained Under His Duty was a fabulous read. In fact, I think it’s my favorite of the series so far. I fell in love with the story-line and the forbidden aspect right away. From the moment we first see Hadley and Ryder together, there is some serious sexual tension. Add in some blackmail, a sex tape, and some government corruption and you’ve got yourself one thrilling read. This book had it all. From mystery to suspense to danger and unexpected twists. To delicious sexual tension and unforgettable sexy encounters. This book had it all. I loved every single moment of this story from beginning to end and enjoyed trying to solve the mystery along with our main characters.

Restrained Under His Duty was a thrilling and exciting read. It is a wonderful addition to this series and I’m very much looking forward to seeing where this series will go next.

My Review

“Finn Ward was my weakness. A desire burning so deep inside of me it was hard to ignore. He was the wrong I knew deep in my heart was my right.”

“I need your touch like the desert needs water.”

Fighting For Love is the second book in the Boston Love Series and follows the story of Finn and Rory. From the moment we meet Finn, he appears to be your typical single playboy. The only thing he loves more than being single is his job as a firefighter. Little did he know that when he met Rory, his life was going to be turned upside down. Suddenly his priorities in life didn’t matter. He finally understood what his friends and family were always talking about. He finally found someone who knocked him on his ass and gave him something worth fighting for…..Ever since Rory graduated from Law School, she’s been trying to make a name for herself; something that has been challenging since she works at her mother’s law firm. Her entire life, Rory has always done what is expected of her and never questioned anything. All of that goes out the window when she meets Finn. Finn is everything that she could possibly want in a guy. But there’s one big, glaring problem: He works for her father and her father doesn’t want her having anything to do with firemen….However staying away from Finn proves to be even harder than Rory could imagine. Their chemistry is intense and undeniable. Will Finn and Rory take a chance and explore the sparks between them or will they let others opinions put out their fire??

Fighting For Love was a fantastic love story. Finn and Rory pulled me in from page one and I honestly could not get enough of the two of them together. The pull between the two of them was so strong, it had me turning the pages furiously to see what would happen next. And let me tell you, these two do not disappoint. Finn took me by such surprise. He was romantic. He was caring. He was alpha. He was utterly swoon-worthy. He pulled out all of the stops when it came to Rory. And Rory…She had a good heart. She loved with everything that she had. She tried to see the good in everyone, but had insecurities just like everyone else. Together, I think Finn and Rory made an excellent team. They just balanced each other out so well and just made you want to cheer for them to find happiness.

 The road to happily ever after was not an easy one for Finn and Rory. There were quite a few obstacles and insecurities to overcome. These two really had to fight for what they wanted and that made me appreciate their story even more.

Overall, Fighting for Love was a really great read. I think the title of this book suits the story perfectly and really rings home that anything and I mean anything worth having, is worth fighting for; no matter how tough the fight. I loved everything about this story from beginning to end and can not wait to see where this series will go next!

Review: Hate 2 Lovers (2 Lovers #2) by K. Webster & J.D. Hollyfield

She hates him and his big head.
He likes her and her big t*ts.

She hates him because she somehow ends up naked every time she sees him.
He likes her because she somehow ends up naked every time he sees her.

She hates him because the big oaf knocked her up with his kid.
He likes her because she’s carrying his child.

She hates the way he gets inside her head.
He likes the way she lets him see glimpses of her heart.

Andie: I hate you.
Roman: I know…but I’m going to change that.

My Review

“His scent calms me. His strength consumes me.”

“We’re two stars on a collision course for each other. There is no orbiting around one another like some sweet love story. Our story is different. Our story is explosive. Our story is chaotic. Our story is my favorite.”

I asked for it, and boy did this duo deliver!!

I fell in love with the writing style of this duo in Text 2 Lovers and couldn’t wait to see if the chemistry between these two writers would continue. Rest assured, these two authors have once again hit it out of the park with Hate 2 Lovers. Hate 2 Lovers is the second book in the 2 Lovers Series, but can totally be read as a stand-alone novel. It is told from dual points of view and is going to take you one entertaining and unforgettable ride!

Hate 2 Lovers starts off with one hilarious and life-altering beginning. This story is fast paced, entertaining as hell, and will have you laughing your ass off. It is going to take your emotions on a roller-coaster ride and there will be moments that will just make you want to scream. I will be the first to admit that Andie drove me batty…Batty in the best way possible! She was all over the place. Loving Roman one minute, wanting to kill him the next. And poor Roman, he didn’t stand a chance with Andie. If Roman was going to be with Andie, he was going to be in for the fight of his life…And what a fight it was!!

Hate 2 Lovers is a fantastic addition to this story. It was well written and incredibly entertaining. I couldn’t put this book down and devoured it in just a few hours. The characters are a lot of fun. They are going to keep you on your toes and have you dying to see what will happen next. And while this story certainly had me laughing like crazy, there is so much more to this story. There is drama. There is suspense. There are unexpected twists. There is passion and romance. There is a love that is worth fighting for. Overall, it was a fantastic read and I can’t wait to see whose story will be next in the 2 Lovers Series!

Review Blitz: Take Me Back by Meghan March

TMB_Twitter_NA

TakeMeBack_FrontCoverWe fell in love on a beach, got married in paradise, and I carried her off into the sunset. It should have been perfect, but saying “I do” doesn’t guarantee a happily-ever-after.

Two years later, I barely recognize either of us behind the walls we’ve built.
It’s time to bring it full circle. Back to a tropical paradise. Back to find out if we can still make this work.

I’m not willing to give her up, but to save us, I have to risk everything.

Two damaged people.

Countless secrets.

The fight of our lives.

We might be broken, but we’re not done.

My Review

“We only get one ride, Kat, and I think you’re meant to be part of mine. Say yes, and I promise you won’t regret it.”

Take Me Back takes you on an extraordinary journey. A journey of what really happens after you say I do. The happily ever after isn’t always easy. Life and circumstances sometimes take you in a direction you never expected. A direction that can either leave you fighting for your love or taking the easy way out.

Take Me Back is a quick and easy read. This story is incredibly well written and takes you on an emotional and thrilling ride. This story evokes a variety of emotions and feels. It will have you questioning and wondering how you would deal with things if you were in a similar situation. Just how far would you go for love?

Take Me Back will open your eyes.It will make you see what is truly in front of you; to see the things that you may have taken for granted.There will be twists that will not only surprise you, but keep you utterly captivated.

I know I’m being pretty vague with this review, but I promise, once you read this book, you will get it. This is a story you need to experience and go into blind. I promise, in the end, it will be totally worth it.

Release Day Blitz with Review: Notes of the Past (Lightning Strikes #2) by Jodie Larson

Title: Notes of the Past
Series: Lightning Strikes #2
Author: Jodie Larson
Release Date: March 20, 2017
Add to TBR

I love women. And it’s easy to see why. Being the lead guitarist for the country’s hottest band, Lightning Strikes, has them practically jumping into my bed and walking out the door just as quick. Which is perfect for me. Emotions complicate things, and I don’t do complicated. Not anymore.

Sure, I was in love once, and it was great. Then it was gone. That’s when I vowed never again. Life is better without empty, broken promises.

After five years of hard work, sacrifices, and determination, everything I’ve ever wanted is in my grasp: a successful career, touring city after city and being accountable to no one.

Then she starts appearing in the crowds. The girl I once loved, and who walked away.

Only, Tatum Mitchell wasn’t just any girl; she was my girl.

Will she be the wedge that drives the last part of my heart away, or will she break down the walls I’ve built? We’re connected through the lyrics of our heart and the notes of our past, but is that enough?

*May be read as a standalone*  

My Review

“Hard truths aren’t always easy to swallow.”

“You’re the song of my heart, the lyrics of my life. Every note I play is for you.”

Ever since I finished Serenading The Shadows, I have been hoping that we would get Myles story. Despite having some epic douche worthy moments, I knew that he had a story to tell, and if we got a chance to read it, it would be totally worth it. And boy am I glad that Jodie Larson decided to tell Myles’ story.

Notes of the Past is told from dual points of view and is the much anticipated story of Myles.  Myles is an asshole; a total jerk. He loves woman and always has a new one in his bed. Besides music, women are his next love. That being said, the women in Myles’ life never get more than one night. He doesn’t do strings or complications. You see, he’s been burned by the love a good woman in the past and he let that hurt turn him into the man that he currently is. Now, many and I mean many years later, his past is about to collide with his present, knocking his entire world off of its axis….Tatum has only loved one man her entire life, but she let fear get the better of her, ruining the best thing that ever happened to her. Now, many years later, fate has brought Tatum and Myles back together. Tatum regrets the actions that separated her and Myles and would give anything for another chance. Will Tatum be able to break down the sky high walls that Myles has built and get him to listen? There is only one way to find out…

Notes of the Past is a fantastic rockstar/ second chance romance. I loved Myles and Tatum’s story. From the moment I picked up this book, I was sucked in and desperate to see what made Myles the way that he was. I just knew that there had to be more to him than meets the eye and as much as his behavior and actions pissed me off, I really wanted to see him redeem himself. Because, let me tell you, the more time I spent with Myles, the more I wanted to see him become a better man. Sure Tatum wasn’t perfect. She made some epic mistakes, but she was young and handled things as she saw fit. It takes a big person to own up to their mistakes and to try to make them right. And let me tell you, just being around Tatum and Myles…You just knew these two had some unfinished business. The tension between the two of them was not only intense, but an inferno just waiting to explode…If only they could move past the past….

Notes of the Past is one of those books that you can’t help but devour in one sitting. The characters are well written and are perfectly flawed. You can’t help but get caught up in their story; one minute frustrated to the point of wanting to throw your kindle and in the next moment, holding your breath, hoping that these two could find a way to get to their HEA.

Myles’ story was everything that I could have wanted and then some. This is a story of mistakes and second chances. This is a story about true love and redemption. This is a story of grabbing on to your second chance and not wasting a single moment. It was just the book I needed and a great addition to the Lightning Strikes Series.

Book Tour with Review: The Play Mate (Roommates #2) by Kendall Ryan

NowAvailable_Ad2

the-play-mate-kendall-ryanSmith Hamilton has it all—he’s smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he’s not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm’s length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him.

Evie Reed knows she’s blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family’s lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She’s crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way.

Except that when Evie’s plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.

My Review

“Like a key fitting into a lock. The last of the darkness faded away, and the loneliness that had become the norm for me lifted, leaving behind a happiness I hadn’t felt in years.”

“Lighting. That’s what it felt like, kissing Evie.”

“Life could be a grind sometimes, but tonight had been a rare gem. An oasis of perfection. No way was I going to ruin it.”

The Play Mate is the second book in the Roommates Series, but can read as a stand alone novel. Told from dual points of view, The Play Mate follows the story of Evie and Smith. For as long as Evie can remember, she’s had a crush on Smith. In her eyes, Smith was the total package. He was smart, sexy and he understood her. Like I said, the total package. Now that Evie is all grown up, she wants to have a do over and she wants Smith to be the man that makes all of her dreams come true between the sheets….Smith loves the life that he lives. He’s intelligent, rich, confident and knows the effect that he has on women. However, there is one woman that he wants more than the air he breaths, but she is off limits to him. You see, Evie is the little sister to Smith’s best friend. He knows he can’t and shouldn’t go there, so he tries his hardest to keep away from her, but that is easier said than done. Even harder now that the two of them will be working together. The chemistry and sparks are intense. Their desire so undeniable that it will only be a matter of time before these two give in…

The Play Mate is the perfect friends to lovers romance with a forbidden romance quality to it. From the moment you meet Evie and Smith, you are pulled into their story and will quickly be swept away. I loved everything about their story. From the forbidden flirtations to the entertaining banter. I could not get enough of these two. Their push and pull was so palpable. You could feel the tension oozing from the pages. Not only did these two have an amazing friendship and unbreakable bond, but the tension between the two of them told you that what they had was the real deal, they just had to be ready to the leap.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story. It was a fast paced and sexy read. The characters were a ton of fun and so easy to relate to. Their story was fun and engaging. I couldn’t put this book down. The Play Mate had just the right amount of sexiness, forbidden romance, angst and of course a little bit of drama. If you are looking for a fun and sexy read with a bit of forbidden/off limits flare to it, I’d definitely recommend checking this book out.
