Title: Power Couple
Series: Nashvegas #1
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Genre: Rockstar Romance

Everett James Thompson

I’ve been in the spotlight since I was born, thanks to my famous parents. Reaper and Harmony have been the gold standard when it comes to celebrity love stories. It’s hard to be in that shadow, to live up to that precedent.

Which is why I stopped trying when my band, Grey Skies hit the big time.

But when I go to Vegas to support my Mom, in her new residency, I have absolutely no idea I’ll leave Vegas with a new pop-star wife.

Brianna Jenkins

As one of the top pop-stars in the world right now, I don’t have time for anything. Much less love, or even a night out.
When my best friend surprises me with tickets to the sold-out Harmony Stewart show in Vegas on my one off weekend of the month, I’m beyond excited. Especially when we find out our seats are next to her family . Harboring a crush on her oldest son added with a few more drinks than I normally have equals consequences neither one of us bargained for.

The next morning, I wake up no longer Brianna Jenkins, pop star.

I’m Brianna Jenkins, member of the new power couple, about to take the world by storm.

Whether we want to, or not.

MY REVIEW

Power Couple is the first book in the Nashvegas Series and it follows the story of EJ and Brianna. EJ’s parents are the gold standard, the ultimate couple. It’s because of them, that he is no stranger to the spotlight or living in their shadow. When EJ goes to Vegas to celebrate his parent’s new residency there, the last thing he dreamed was that he’d wind up getting married….Brianna is one of the hottest pop stars around and doesn’t have much time to just sit and enjoy life. And romance is definitely on the back burner. But, when Brianna is surprised with tickets to see her famous band, she’s about to get more than she ever bargained for….

If you’re a fan of the instalove trope, look no further, Power Couple is the book that you’ve been waiting for. This book combines not only my love for instant connections but also oops marriages. And let me tell you, EJ and Brianna rocked it. Their chemistry and connection were off the charts. Where most people would have found themselves panicked over an oops marriage, these two took it in stride and gave it a real go.

Overall, I think this series is off to a really good start. This story had just the right amount of steam, romance, and drama. I’m definitely intrigued and am looking to see where this story is going to go. This story kept me captivated from the moment I picked it up, until the moment I reached the end, and that ending left me dying to know how things will play out!

Review: Resisting the Billionaire (Bishop Brothers, #1) by Allie Winters

-Gabriel-
When I’m forced to make a deal with my father to marry the woman of his choosing for a business deal, I never expected to find someone I connect with. Someone who doesn’t fawn all over me because I’m the heir to a billion dollar fortune. Someone who sees the real me. And someone I can’t get enough of in turn.
There’s only one problem – I can’t have her. She’s the wedding planner.

-Mackenzie-
It’s the chance of a lifetime – plan the wedding of a billionaire’s son that’ll put my event planning business on the map and get me out of debt. A no brainer, right?
Except the bride wants nothing to do with this arranged marriage. And as the groom and I get closer, the professional lines between us blur until there’s something there neither of us can deny. With my business on the line and our chemistry off the charts, I’m torn whether I should keep resisting the one person I never expected to fall for.

MY REVIEW

Resisting The Billionaire follows the story of Mackenzie & Gabriel. When we first meet up with Gabriel, his father has just thrown down the gauntlet and demanded that Gabriel marry. Unfortautnely, for him, he has no interest in marrying who his father has chosen. He’s hooked on the one girl he can’t have….

Overall, I thought this book was a quick read. I thought the characters were interesting and I enjoyed this author’s take on the billionaire trope. Gabriel was a bit unexpected. He knew what he wanted and wasn’t afraid to go after it. He was a man of his own mind. Mackenzie was a great character. She didn’t fall for Gabriel’s charm and always tried to do the right thing even if it was the last thing that she wanted. Together, I thought the two of them had great chemistry and I enjoyed their push and pull. 

Resisting The Billionaire was a quick and easy read for me. This is my first book by this author and I think she has a lot of great potential. I look forward to checking out more of her books in the future.

MY REVIEW

Custom Built is the first book in the all new Fast & Fury Series by Chantal Fernando and it follows the story of Bronte and Crow. Bronte has been having the toughest year. Her health hasn’t been doing well and she’s just lost her job. She could really use some good news. So, when her uncle has the in on a new job for her, she can’t help but jump on it. Little did she know that this opportunity was going to turn her whole world upside down….

Overall, I thought this book was a solid read. I thought the plot was entertaining and I enjoyed getting to know the characters. I really liked Bronte and Crow together. Their banter was fun and I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. While they might have butted heads in the beginning, it quickly changed into something more. The chemistry was instant and just oozed off the pages.

I did have some issues with this story. At times, it felt like there was a lot going on. While there certainly wasn’t a dull moment, it felt like it was too much. Also, I feel like I need to mention the drama. Now, I like drama as much as the next person, but in this book, I’m sorry to say it was over the top. Some of it made sense, but the other instances were just drama for the sake of dram and it just didn’t work for me.

Custom Built is fast-paced and entertaining read. The characters draw you into their story and leave readers wanting to know what will happen next. There were some things that I didn’t like about this story, but in the end, I think this was a solid read and I’m glad to have checked it out.

Review: Time After Time (Sweetbriar Cove #14) by Melody Grace

Review: Time After Time (Sweetbriar Cove #14) by Melody Grace

Fall in love with another irresistible stand-alone Sweetbriar Cove romance from New York Times bestselling author, Melody Grace!

Stella Hart doesn’t believe in fairy-tales. After all, even Cinderella didn’t spend her day up to her elbows in other people’s plumbing. But when an unplanned pregnancy sent her life off course, it was the community in Sweetbriar Cove that stepped up to offer a hand. Now, she’s proud of her business and the life she’s built for her son. She isn’t expecting Prince Charming to walk through the door — and she definitely doesn’t expect him to take the shape of the handsome high-achiever who owes her a kiss…

Aidan Kinsella was on top of the world — until one reckless error sent him crashing back down to earth. Now he’s hiding out in Sweetbriar Cove, trying to plan his next move. Except it turns out, his feisty neighbor is a constant distraction. She’s down-to-earth, practical — and practically irresistible…

Soon, sparks are flying between the unlikely couple, but Stella isn’t looking to play games. Their attraction spells major trouble for the steady life she’s worked so hard to build, and as they grow closer, she can’t help wondering when their fairy-tale romance will have to end. Will the story finish too soon, or can Stella and Aidan find their happily-ever-after?

MY REVIEW

There’s nothing I love more than getting swept up in a Sweetbriar Cove romance. Time After Time is the 14th book in the Sweetbriar Cove Series and each book gets better and better!

Time After Time follows the story of Stella and Aiden. Single mom Stella has a hard time believing in romance and fairytales. She envisioned a different life for herself, and when life threw her a life-changing curveball, the members of Sweetbriar Cove stepped in and gave her the helping hand she needed. Now, her business is thriving and she couldn’t be more proud of her hard work. The last thing she expected was for Aiden to blow into her life…

Time After Time is a sweet and sexy read. The characters and their story are easy to connect and relate to. I loved the banter between Aiden and Stella right away. Their push and pull drew me in and left me begging for more.

Time After Time is a fantastic addition to the Sweetbriar Cove Series. It has everything from lifelong friendships, to exciting chemistry and banter. It has just the right amount of sexiness and swoon-worthy moments that will keep readers glued to the pages.

I had the best time getting swept up in Aiden and Stella’s story and hope that you’ll fall head over heels for them as much as I did!

Blog Tour with Review: Noble Prince by Devney Perry

Noble Prince by Devney Perry is now live!

The night Luke Rosen met Scarlett Marks was the only time he’s regretted becoming chief of police. One horrific night of blood and death, and now she’s living under his roof–all because he swore an oath to serve and protect.
Scarlett is stubborn and infuriating. She has no respect for the order in his structured life, and she never does anything she’s told. Worse, she doesn’t seem to care that the information she has on a motorcycle gang means she might end up dead. But her unwavering strength, her courage and tenacity and beauty, makes it impossible for him to abandon her.
If Luke is going to keep her safe, he’ll have to make the hardest decision of his life. He can either honor his values as a cop, knowing Scarlett is unlikely to survive . . . or he can break all the rules and protect the woman who’s invaded his home and his heart.

MY REVIEW

“I wasn’t just a cop, but a man falling in love who wasn’t ready to give Scarlett up.”

“We lived in a gray world and you’ve got to pick a shade closest to white. So do what your heart tells you.”

Noble Prince is the fourth book in the Tin Gypsy Series and it picks up right where Stone Princess left off. This is Scarlett and Luke’s story and it promises to deliver a story of strength, redemption, and an unforgettable romance.

When we first meet up with Scarlett, she finds herself in Luke’s protective custody. Scarlett is stubborn and doesn’t realize the severity of what’s at stake. But, if Luke is going to be able to keep her safe, he’ll have to bend the rules he’s sworn to protect. Will Luke be able to keep his honor and still keep Scarlett safe? There’s only one way to find out…

Noble Prince is a fantastic read from beginning to end. Scarlett’s story sucks you in from the very beginning and leaves no stone unturned. Scarlett’s life has been anything but easy. She’s endured hardships since she was a little girl and is much tougher than people give her credit for. She has a huge heart and while she doesn’t always make the smartest choices, she is one of the strongest women and will do whatever it takes to set the record straight.

And then we’ve got Luke, sweet swoon-worthy, Luke. He takes his work very seriously and likes to have order in his life. Having Scarlett in his life turned his world upside down in the best possible way. She invaded every part of his life and had him wanting things he never thought possible.

Together these two were a scorching inferno. Their chemsitry was believable and off the charts. Scarlett and Luke were real and had their own faults, yet you couldn’t help but root their story.

Noble Prince is the fourth book in the Tin Gypsy Series and is a terrific addition to this series. The characters are real, and easy to connect with. Noble Prince is filled with mystery, suspense, and action that will keep you on your toes. And of course, we can’t forget the romance. The romance will leave you swooning. Luke and Scarlett’s story promises to sweep you off your feet and leave you with a huge smile on your face. I enjoyed every moment of this story and look forward to seeing where this series is going to go next!

Excerpt

“If you’re not going to get out of the way, I’ll just go around.” I spun on my shoes, whirling the opposite direction, but when I went to take a step and carry my basket away, I suddenly found its weight missing from my arm. He’d stolen it from me before I’d had the chance to clutch it tight.

Then the world was spinning. The floors, the ceiling, everything flipped topsy-turvy.

I’d fainted.

No, that wasn’t right.

I was being carried. Hauled. That had been Luke’s threat and damn it, I’d underestimated him. The chief had made good on his word.

His shoulder dug into my belly as he walked. I lifted my face, pushing the hair out of my eyes. My basket of food sat exactly where I’d been standing. My chicken and rolls and cookies and chocolate milk. The items grew smaller with every one of Luke’s strides.

“Put me down.”

He kept walking.

“Put me down!” I shouted.

Still, he kept walking.

I lifted a hand and raised it above my head. My hair kept falling in front of my face, obscuring my vision, but that didn’t stop me from using every ounce of strength I had left. I brought my fist down on Luke’s lower back. Except my aim was shit so I didn’t hit his back. No, my fist bounced off his firm, perfect ass.

Luke didn’t so much as break his stride. “I promised Presley I’d keep you safe.”

And without another word, without stopping, he carried me in a fireman’s hold out of the grocery store and into the snow.

I was going back to the daisies, whether I wanted to or not.

Hello, Scarlett. I’m rock bottom.

Release Blitz with Review: Date Me Like You Mean It by R.S. Grey

R.S. Grey’s next standalone romcom, Date Me Like You Mean It, is out now! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

TItle: Date Me Like You Mean It

Author: R.S. Grey

Genre: Rom-Com

I’m good at hiding my feelings.
Having to pretend I’m not in love with my best friend?
Pfft. That’s child’s play.

Here’s how I do it: I avert my eyes when he walks out of his room, shirtless in all his toned glory. I squash the butterflies that fill my stomach every time he slowly unfurls a dimpled smile. And, most importantly, I keep an arsenal of “personal massagers” in my bedside drawer. Wink.

Not to brag, but Aiden Smith isn’t hard to resist if you’ve been doing it for as long as I have. In fact, we might have continued as best friends forever if not for the fact that I needed him to play the part of my fake boyfriend.

Date me like you mean it, I told him. Nudge nudge. C’mon, just go along with a little lie, help a girl out, and then we can all return to life as we know it.

Except he veered from the plan.

He crossed the line.

Flirting with me when no one else was around? Pinning me down and kissing me like that? Okay, how exactly is taking off my bra part of the ruse, Aiden?!
I’d ask him about it if I could, but well…things got ugly and we’re not best friends anymore.

In fact, we’re the exact opposite.

Now, I have to play nice even though I want to crush his heart in the palm of my hand.

Pretending not to love Aiden was the easy part.
Pretending not to hate him?
Well…I might need a little more practice.

MY REVIEW

“These are the words I’ve wanted to hear. They’re the words I imagined during so many lonely nights. But they’re just…words. They don’t change the past. They don’t repair the damage that’s already been done.”

“It feels like I can’t get her close enough. I want her inside me, part of me.”

“It’s the kiss of a lifetime. The kiss I’ve wanted for years. A kiss that comes right after the truth.”

R.S. Grey has knocked it out of the park with Date Me Like You Mean It. Aiden & Maddie’s story pulled me out of my reading rut and left me with the biggest smile on my face.

Date Me Like You Mean It is the latest romance novel from author R.S. Grey and it follows the story of Maddie and Aiden. For years, Maddie has harbored romantic feelings for her roommate Aiden but has never acted on them. She’s always been too afraid of the consequences and let’s face it, nothing is worse than admitting your feelings and finding out that they’re not reciprocated. So when Maddie needs a fake boyfriend, even though she shouldn’t do it, she asks Aiden to help. Only, fate had other plans in mind for these two, and Aiden deviated from the plan. In the end, Maddie was left with a broken heart and more confused than ever. It will be a year before these two are reunited. Maddie isn’t the same girl Aiden used to know and Aiden isn’t going to walk away without a fight…..

I love, love, loved absolutely everything about this book. From the very first page, I was hooked. I connected instantly with Maddie and loved her friendship with Aiden. Their banter was off the charts and entertaining. Their chemistry just flowed off the pages and left you dying for more. My heart ached right along with Maddie’s and I felt every bit of her frustration.

You see, Maddie and Aiden were the best of friends until one night everything got screwed up. If only they could have communicated better with one another, a lot of this pain and heartache could have been avoided. Maddie and Aiden had some of the most delicious will they/won’t they moments. The yearning so intense, it lept off the pages.

Together Maddie and Aiden were an excellent match. The road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one for them, but neither one of them was willing to let go without a fight. I absolutely loved that about them. Neither one of them was perfect and both had me wanting to knock sense into them at times, but at the end of the day, I couldn’t help but root for this couple to find their happily ever after.

And I just have to say, Aiden is without a doubt a great book boyfriend. Is he perfect? No. Does he try to right his wrongs? Yes. Is he swoon-worthy? Without a doubt. Aiden is 100%, knock you off of your feet swoon-worthy and I just loved him!

Date Me Like You Mean It is a fantastic read and I absolutely adored every single second of it. Maddie and Aiden’s story delivered everything I wanted and then some. Date Me Like You Mean It had the perfect combination of swoon, romance, humor, and heart-tugging angst. Date Me Like You Mean It is easily one of my top reads from this author and I hope you’ll check it out and fall in love with this book just as I have.

Review: Overdue by Miranda Elaine

Growing up, Griffin Thorne was the most annoying, adorable, and infuriating boy I’d ever met. I told myself I wanted nothing to do with him, but no matter how much I tried to hate him, that crazy boy somehow became my best friend.

As teenagers, we were inseparable. Despite the high school rumors, we never crossed any lines. Friends forever. That was our motto.

Griffin grew up to become a smoking hot firefighter and I got my dream job as the town librarian. Life was perfect. However, when tragedy strikes and we’re forced to move in together, our friendship is put to the biggest test yet.

Do I risk everything for the chance at an epic love? If I follow my heart, I could lose my best friend. But if it works, we could finally get our very own Happily Ever After.

MY REVIEW

“That’s all I ever wanted to do, take care and protect her like she’s the most precious thing in the world because to me she is.”

“You are my sunrise and my sunset.”

Overdue has to be hands down one of the cutest and sweetest friends to lovers romance that I’ve in a while. Griffin and Leni grew up together and at first couldn’t stand one another. But, as time grew on, the developed one of the greatest friendships. They were each other’s rock, their person, the one they spent the most time with. So, it was only natural that they would both develop deeper feelings for one another, but be afraid of pursuing it.

One of the things I loved about this story was just how genuine and true Griffin and Leni were. There was no beating around the bush, no crazy over the top drama. Just a sweet story of friends that were in love with one another, but too afraid to take the next step. From the moment you meet Leni and Griffin, it’s impossible to not get swept up in their story. Their chemistry just oozes off the pages and those will they/won’t they moments will leave you begging for more. I’m not usually a big fan of the slow burn, but when done right, I can’t get enough of it. And let me tell you, this author got the slow burn right!

Overdue is the kind of book that you will devour in a single sitting and that will leave you with a big smile on your face. This book is like sunshine on a cloudy day. It’s sweet. It’s romantic with the perfect amount of drama to balance things out. It’s got just the right amount of steam and spice and a slow burn that will leave you bursting with anticipation.

Overdue is my first book by Miranda Elaine, and it certainly won’t be my last. I can’t wait to check out more from this author in the future.

Sometimes the epilogue to one story is the beginning of another.

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Jasinda Wilder comes an all-new, emotionally gripping novel, The Cabin, available now!

One year ago, I buried my husband.

One year ago, I held his hand and said goodbye.

Now I spend most of my days lost somewhere between trying to remember every smallest detail of our lives, and trying to forget it all. I fill my hours with work until I’m too exhausted to remember him, to feel anything at all.

One year, 365 days—and then one knock at my door changes everything. A letter from him, a last request, a secret will:

My Review

The Cabin is a heart-breaking second chance romance that is sure to pull on your heartstrings and leave readers with all the feels.

Nadia and her husband had the greatest love story. They loved one another truly and deeply. Everything was perfect until it wasn’t. When tragedy strikes, Nadia’s world is turned upside down. Fast forward a year, and Nadia is still a shadow of the woman she used to be. She hasn’t learned to move on or grieve, that is until fate intervenes. A knock at the door presents Nadia with one final request from her dead husband….

The Cabin pulled me in from the very first page. I was instantly intrigued and captivated. I knew this story was going to be an emotional one, yet somehow I still wasn’t prepared for it. Nadia’s pain and heartache felt so real, so palpable. I found myself devastated by her husband’s passing, but at the same time, my heart felt so full. He thought of everything, every last detail.

In a way, this story is a bit unconventional. I can’t say too much, but what I will tell you is to trust the story and the journey. While it’s not an easy one, it’s totally worth it.

The Cabin is a story of pain and heartbreak. A story of loss and devotion. A story of finding yourself and learning to love again. When one door closes shut, another one opens. You just have to be willing to open your heart and your mind.

I loved every moment of this story from beginning to end and easily devoured it in a single sitting. Fans of second chance romances, will not want to miss this new story from author Jasinda Wilder.

Review: The Brightest Night (Origin #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The thrills, drama, and intrigue continue in the third installment of the Origin series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout.

He is the darkest star.
You are the burning shadow.
And together, you will bring about the brightest night.

Less than a year ago, Evelyn Dasher was a normal girl, living an unremarkable life.

Now, she’s on the run, under the protection of the beautiful, deadly inhuman Luc. She’s been betrayed by those who were closest to her. And she’s learned truths about herself that she never saw coming–things she once knew, and was made to forget. Truths with devastating consequences. She’s caught in the eye of the storm.

MY REVIEW

“If you were letters on a page, you’d be the fine print.”

“When am I supposed to thank you, Luc?” “When I do something worth thanking me for.”

“You’re the burning shadow and he’s the darkest star, and together, you will bring about the darkest night.”

Another thrilling and exciting installment of the Origin Series!

The Brightest Night picks up right where The Burning Shadow left off and kept me on the edge of my seat right until the very end. When we meet up with Evelyn, she’s on the run and under the protection of Luc. Trust doesn’t come easy to Evelyn, as those who were the closest have betrayed her in the past. Her memories may have been gone, but they are certainly not forgotten. Truths that were once hidden will be revealed and have devastating consequences. Forget everything you thought you knew and hold on because The Brightest Night is sure to take readers on one wild ride…

The Brightest Night was everything that I was hoping it would be. It picked up right where the last book left off and had me hooked from the very first page. There is so much I want to say right now, but I absolutely can’t! So, I’ll leave you with this. The Brightest Night is thrilling and exciting. There are dangers around every corner. There are some achingly beautiful moments and a romance that is sure to make readers swoon. Truths will be revealed and the floor will be ripped out from you. I can tell you this, I was in no way prepared for the last 10% or so of this book. I thought I was on the right track and knew how the story was going to play out and let me tell you, I was dead wrong. This was a twist and turn I didn’t see coming. Everything I thought I knew was gone in a snap of a finger and know I’m sitting here dying to know what in the world is going to happen next!

Jennifer Armentrout has once again blown me away with her incredible writing and story-telling. She gave me a story filled with so many emotions and unexpected turns and I loved every single second of it. The Brightest Night was a terrific read from beginning to end and I’ll be anxiously waiting for the next installment of the Origin Series.
