Release Blitz with Review: His Royal Highness by R.S. Grey

About HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS

I’ve spent eight years wishing I’d fall out of love with Derek Knightley. Blowing out birthday candles, chasing after shooting stars, making it rain spare change into mall fountains—every time it’s the same wish: forget about Derek.

But the day he walks back into my life, I realize there are two things time has yet to soften: my feelings for him and his chiseled jawline.

It’s infuriating that my heart still races when he walks into a room. I refuse to fall prey to old unrequited love, so I decide the less I’m around him, the better. Avoidance is key.

Unfortunately, Derek isn’t going to make it easy. As a teenager, I would have crawled on my hands and knees to attract his attention. Now I can’t seem to escape it.

I’m not sure why he’s bothering. He’s not just out of my league—he’s out of my tax bracket. As the sole heir to the Knightley Company, he’s as close to American royalty as you can get. As for me, I’m just a part-time princess at Knightley’s flagship magical theme park.

I spend my days playing make-believe, but Derek has no use for fairytales. His unwavering confidence makes it clear he thinks I’ll surrender in the end.

He’s just biding his time.

Making me sweat.

His Royal Highness always gets what he wants.

And he wants me.

MY REVIEW

“I don’t know how a soul finds its mate, why it seemed like mine had latched onto someone who was the least logical choice. All I know is it’s been eight years and I’m still not over my silly crush on Derek Knightly.”

“It’s his eyes. They’re the truest dark brown, a shade that doesn’t parade around with pomp and circumstance. There’s a quiet tug in their depths. Tell me your secrets and I’ll never tell a soul, they promise. And I listen. I down a truth serum each time our gazes meet.”

“You’re scared of real pain.” “The burning kind. The lie awake and worry kind. The can’t eat, can’t think, no life without you in it…kind.”

I don’t know about you guys, but I was so excited to hear that R.S. Grey had another book coming out. Her romantic comedies are some of the best. They are smartly written with quirky characters and storylines you can’t help but fall in love with. Her latest book, His Royal Highness hit each and every one of my marks, and was so worth waiting for…..

His Royal Highness follows the story of Derek and Whitney. Whitney has lived her life always feeling like second best, so it comes to no surprise that she should fall for the magic of the kingdom that Knightley Corporation created. It got her through some of the toughest times in her life, and when she became old enough, she was determined to work for the Knightley Corporation. What she didn’t plan on was having Derek Knightley as a mentor. He was everything, yet completely intimidating at the same time. Whitney would have done anything to get Derek to notice her. She developed quite the crush on Derek, but when she finally got the courage to do something about it, he disappeared. It will be eight years before Derek and Whitney are reunited. Whitney is not the same meek, timid girl that Derek once knew. She’s quite grown up and isn’t about to put her heart on the line again. Only, Derek didn’t get that memo. He’s captivated by Whitney and refuses to fight the pull he feels towards her. Fate has brought Derek and Whitney together again and only time will tell if these two characters will find their happily ever after….

His Royal Highness was a wonderful treat. This story intrigued me from the very first page. I loved how real and raw Whitney was written. In the beginning, Whitney was this young and shy girl. She was a bit immature at times, but it was perfect for the age of her character. I loved how relateable the author made this character. As someone in their 30’s, I can quite relate to being lost and a bit over my head as a young adult. I thought she was sweet and real and I just couldn’t wait to get to know her more. And then we have Derek. Derek is this sophisticated older man who’s got his stuff together. He’s confident and charming and completely intimidating. I loved watching his eyes open when it came to Whitney. He was so sweet and gentle with her; the perfect book boyfriend. Derek & Whitney had some amazing chemistry. Their back and forth led to some delicious will they/won’t they moments. The tension just oozes off of the pages, leaving readers dying for more. I absolutely loved watching these two try to navigate their way everything and couldn’t wait to see how their story would end.

His Royal Highness was the cherry on top, the most perfect read to spend my day getting lost in. I loved the magic of the Knightly Kingdom. The characters were real and easy to connect with. I laughed. I swooned. Most of all, I feel head over heels in love. His Royal Highness was totally magical and I loved getting swept up in Whitney & Derek’s story….

Review: Kiss Me Again by Emma Hart

WANTED: ROOMMATE. Must be tidy, polite, and absolutely not my brother’s hot as sin best friend.

I have no idea why I said yes.

Maybe I’d had one too many wines. Maybe I’d done it accidentally. Maybe I’d been sleep-texting.

One thing I know for sure is this: I absolutely do not want Ethan Hawkins in my apartment, up in my business, taking over my space.

Yet he’s here. Moving his stuff into my spare bedroom. Sending a wave of panty-melting, musky man-scent my way every time he walks past me.

Here’s the thing.

We don’t get along—at all. We never have, and I don’t think we’re going to start now that we’re under one roof.

There’s also that little issue where I’m kinda, sorta, totally in love with him…

Uh-oh.

MY REVIEW

“The best kiss of my life would go down in history as being with him. This would be the benchmark for which all other kisses would be held against. That was it, then. I was already ruined for all other men. Wonderful.”

“I wanted to go over there and wrap my arms around her. I wanted to hold her against me and press her face into my chest. To reach down and cup her chin and lift her face to mine, to whisper against her lips that I was sorry. So fucking sorry for making it awkward, for making her feel this way, for even a second.”

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been dying to get my hands on Ava’s story. It had all of my favorite troupes packed into one hilarious story. And let me tell you, Evan and Ava do not disappoint.

Kiss Me Again follows the story of Evan and Ava. Ava was desperately in need of a roommate. She was so desperate that she said yes to allowing her arch nemesis to move in. There’s only one problem with living with the person who drives you up the wall….Ava has had the biggest crush on Evan for as long as she can remember. However, she’s never done anything about it because not only is he her brother’s best friend, but also because they fight all the time. How they thought living together would be a good idea, I’ll never know. With tension and sparks flying all over the place, Kiss Me Again is a match made in romantic comedy heaven that will give you all the feels and leave you begging for more.

Emma Hart has completely knocked it out of the park with Kiss Me Again. The characters are fun and entertaining. Their story captivates you from the very first page and leaves you hanging on every word. Evan and Ava are a hilarious match. From entertaining banter to their revenge antics, I just couldn’t get enough of these two. I mean, when they say they’re going to war, they do not mess around. But, all that fiery tension is sure to lead to some pretty intense passion. Ava and Evan kept me on my toes and left me breathless in anticipation. I couldn’t wait to see how their story would come together.

Kiss Me Again is everything I could want from an Emma Hart romantic comedy. You have crazy fun characters that are easy to relate too and leave you in stitches as you read their story. Kiss Me Again made me laugh. It made swoon. It made me fall head over heels in love. It had the perfect balance of steam, angst and humor and in the end, I just couldn’t get enough of these characters and their story.

Review: Kiss Me Tonight by Emma Hart

What do a wrong number text, a burning building, and a quirky florist have in common? 

A hunky firefighter with an extra-large…hosepipe.

In hindsight, I never should have opened that text message. The last thing I needed first thing on a Monday was a picture of some stranger’s, um, eggplant, in my inbox.

I also should have replaced the batteries in my fire alarm, because my Friday night did not need to end with my apartment building going up in flames. 

But it’s fine. It’s fine. Everything is fine. 

I’m only lying in a hospital bed with more split ends than I’ve ever had, almost all my Earthly possessions have turned to ash, and apparently, they don’t serve wine to patients in this place. 

But like I said, it’s fine. 

Until he walks in. 

The guy who saved my life. My hero. Noah Jacobs

And the universe is amusing itself at my expense, because the dirty photo I woke up to on Monday? 

It’s his.

MY REVIEW

“She tasted like temptation and the death of all my self-control. She tasted like someone who could be the rest of my fucking life.”

Kiss Me Tonight is the second book in the Kiss Me Series and follows the story of Noah and Reagan. Reagan’s story starts off in the most unconvential way. She wakes up to find that she’s been sent a naughty picture. Obviously, it was sent in error, but she can’t help herself from responding. From that moment on, an unexpected friendship forms between Reagan and her stranger. Fate has plans for these two and when it comes to fate, all you can do is just sit back and enjoy the wild ride.

I have to say that Kiss Me Tonight is my favorite romantic comedy from Emma Hart this year. I mean, she totally knocked it out of the park with this one. Reagan is top notch. She’s got zero filter and isn’t afraid to give it to you straight. Her family is totally nuts, and will leave you in stitches over their antics. But, there is more to Reagan than meets the eye. Yes, she’s sarcastic and says whatever is on her mind, but when she loves, she loves hard. She keeps it real and isn’t afraid to be herself. And then we have Noah….Noah. Noah. Noah. He is the total package and is 100% swoon worthy. He’s not perfect. He can’t be since it was his picutre is what brought him and Reagan together. But, you know, in this day in age, dating is HARD. Anyways, Noah doesn’t shy away from the crazy that is Reagan. He embraces it and just goes with the flow. He is exactly what Reagan was missing from her life.

I really enjoyed getting to know Reagan and Noah. Their story had me laughing so much that I had a seriously hard time containing it. Their chemsitry was instant and I fell in love with both of them just through their text messages. Their chemistry was palpable and off the charts. I just couldn’t get enough of these two together. And one of the things I loved the most was just the ease of their relationship. There was no drama, no over the top moments, no angst. Just a straight up romance that kept me on my toes and left me begging for more.

Kiss Me Tonight is just what the doctor ordered and is a must read for any romantic comedy lover. I laughed. I swooned. I had the absolute best time. Reagan and Noah’s story was a terrific one to spend my day getting lost in and I just loved every single moment of it….

Cover Reveal: Perfectly Adequate by Jewel E. Ann

PA - CR banner

Perfectly Adequate, an all-new must-read romantic comedy from Jewel E. Ann, is coming September 29th and we have the adorable cover!

PerfectlyAdequate-ebookFINAL

Dr. Elijah Hawkins needs … something.

After his wife jumps headfirst into a midlife crisis, he’s left with his young son, Roman, and a lot of unanswered questions.

That something turns out to be a someone—Dorothy Mayhem, nursing student, patient transporter, reckless driver, and emu owner.

Dorothy studies humans, the neurotypical kind, through books and television. Then she emulates their behavioral patterns to fit in with her peers.

But nothing can prepare her for Dr. Elijah Hawkins.

Single dad.

Brilliant pediatric oncologist.

And the sexiest doctor at the hospital.

When his failed attempts at asking her out turn into a string of playdates with his son, Dorothy finds herself unexpectedly enamored with the boy and his father.

And that’s a problem, a huge one, because Elijah’s ex-wife is a famous plastic surgeon—and Dorothy’s idol.

Perfectly Adequate is a beautiful, hilarious, and heart-felt journey along the “human” spectrum.

Cover Reveal: The Dugout by Meghan Quinn

MQTheDugoutBookCover55x85_MEDIUM

Let me ask you a question:

If someone is vying for your spot on a team and just so happens to injure you during practice, would you believe it was on purpose?

Word around campus is . . . it was no accident.

That injury has cost me everything; my starting position, my junior year—and the draft. Now, I’m a senior fresh off recovery, struggling to find my groove, until the day I run into a nervous, fidgety, girl with freckles, in the dining hall.

They call Milly Potter The Baseball Whisperer, The Diamond Wizard, and The Epitome of All Knowledge. She believes in baseball. She breathes it. She’s the queen of an infamous dynasty, but no one actually knows who she really is, and she plans to keep it that way.

One mishap in the panini line, one miscommunication in the weight room, and many failed attempts at an apology equal up to one solid truth — Milly Potter never wants to speak to me again — no matter how good my forearms look.

Little do we both know, she’s about to become more than just my fairy ballmother.

THE DUGOUT RELEASES SEPTEMBER 19TH!!!!
