Genre: Rock Star Romance
Release Date: February 17, 2018



BLURB

He’s not looking to change his bad boy ways.

Arlo Jones is a badass millionaire rock star with the world at his feet. He lives the “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll” lifestyle to the max, and believes in working hard and playing harder. He’s a man who always gets what he wants, especially when it comes to women. Until he meets London.

She’s a damaged dancer not looking to fall.

All London Llwellyn wants is to rebuild her life following the tragic car accident that robbed her of her fiancĂ©, and ended her career as a professional ballet dancer. She’s working two jobs to scrape together the cash to set up her own studio, and reinvent herself as a photographer. The last thing she wants is to get involved.

Arlo promises to always be there to catch her, but can London trust him enough to let herself fall?

Our Review:

“The playboy and the broken girl, 4 stars”

Arlo can rock a stage like it’s nobody’s business. He also makes it his mission to rock women as well. I mean what’s the point of being the lead singer in a world-renowned rock band if you don’t, right? That is until he meets London. Once he met her it was all down hill for him and he was ready to be committed but London has some hang ups. Will he bust down those walls or will both their pasts bite them in the butt?

London thought she had it all two years ago. She had her dream job and the man she was going to spend the rest of her life with. Until it was all ripped away. Now she’s just trying to save up for her next career and working two jobs. She has no time for guys. When she meets Arlo she has no idea who he is but the sexual tension surrounding the two is strong. Will she take a chance on the rock star or will she deny herself what she really wants?

I genuinely liked Catching London. Although there were a lot of times I straight up wanted to slap London upside the head. The girl was her own worst enemy. Poor Arlo didn’t know what he was doing but he was trying his hardest. The opening scene and the cause of why they met would totally give me nightmares, so I don’t blame the girl. Its giving me the hibbie gibbies just thinking about it. *shivers* The only other thing I had a problem with is the book started off with secondary characters and then they just kind of faded way. They were still there but they didn’t interact with them and I found it slightly strange. Nonetheless Catching London was a solid quick read.

Release+Review-The Pilot & the Puck-Up-Pippa Grant



RELEASE BLITZ
Title: The Pilot & the Puck-Up
Author: Pippa Grant
Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy
Release Date: February 16, 2018

BLURB

He’s the biggest, baddest, most spider-fearing motherpucker on the ice…

When you’re named after the king of the gods, the world expects certain things of you.

Tough? Damn right.

Smart? Don’t let the hockey uniform fool you.

Large and in charge? Honey, I’m the biggest, baddest, mother pucking-est machine to ever own the ice. I shoot. I score. In and out of the rink. I don’t come early, but I come often, if you know what I mean. And I always leave the ladies wanting more.

Until that chick last night.

I’m no one-thrust wonder, and you’re damn right I’m going to prove to her I can do better. But every time I think I’m finally on my way back into her pants, she one-ups and out-balls me.

I should cut my losses, lick my wounds, and walk away.

But Zeus Berger doesn’t walk away from anything.

Especially when she's the only woman in the world who might be able to handle me.

The Pilot and the Puck-Up is a standalone romantic comedy featuring a hockey player whose ego is the only thing bigger than his shoe size, the most badass woman to ever fly a plane, rubber chockey (don't ask), and no cheating or cliffhangers.

Our Review:

“the BA and the gentle giant, 3 stars”

Zeus is one big mofo but graceful on ice. He loves his family and loves the game of hockey but people don’t see much more than that when they look at him. That is until he meets Joey aka Fireball. He thinks instantly that if one woman is going to give him a chance, a true chance its going to be her. The question is can he break down her walls?
Joey is used to order and people falling in line. She’s a no-nonsense kind of woman but somehow Zeus worms his way in. Can the hard-headed pilot give up a little control and fall for the man who wants her? What happens when change is on the horizon will she let it happen or fight it?
I genuinely liked the characters in this story. They were funny and make you smile. But for some reason I couldn’t connect with the story and fall into it like I usually do. Thus, the reason for the 3 stars, even with that said I recommend you give it a try if you love a story with two hard headed people and a little hockey.

EXCERPT

Zeus Berger (aka the biggest, baddest, most spider-fearing mother pucker to ever play in the NHL)

Coconuts are itchy. I should’ve gone for the watermelons.
But it was a bitch and a half getting that last-minute private fitting at Madame Cosette’s anyway, and the woman probably would’ve had to stitch three bras together and then nailed the damn contraption to my shoulders to get it to hold without losing a melon, so coconuts it is.
Besides, it’s the heels that are gonna be the bigger problem. Damn good thing I have ankles of fucking steel.
And my minidress is stretched to max capacity over the coconuts anyway. It’s also in danger of showing my other coconuts, if you catch my drift. And there’s definitely a drift—or is that a draft?—on my other coconuts.
A wolf whistle echoes through the swanky private clubhouse where I’m strolling in with my twin brother on my left and my brother from another mother on my right. A passing server drops a tray of champagne. Conversation stops. And a bunch of stuffy golf pricks gape at us like we’re a mutant alien circus freak show crashing their million-dollar wedding reception.
We’re three dudes who have more money than God, more muscles than all the Kardashians’ bodyguards combined, and more fun than cotton candy and roller coasters.

Release + Review-I Can Explain-Missy Johnson



RELEASE BLITZ
Title: I Can Explain
Series:  Awkward Love #2
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance
Release Date: February 15, 2018

BLURB

Standing on the balcony, outside my boss’s apartment, wearing only my underwear?

Not how I expected to start my Saturday morning.

I guess I should’ve thought harder about going home with my sexy new gym instructor, especially since I had no idea the guy was married. When he pushed me out onto the balcony, five seconds before his wife walked through the door, I jumped one apartment over because I thought it would be less embarrassing for a stranger to find me than his wife.

That was a smart move.

So here I am, wearing next to nothing and freezing my ass off, standing outside the living room window of my young, sexy, and very intimidating boss, Chase Winston.

I have two choices: I sit here and try to think of another way out of this and risk dying of hypothermia. Or I can suck it up and knock on that window. After a long, internal argument with myself, I choose
option two.

Here goes nothing…


**Awkward Love is a series of short, sexy, fun novels that can be read in ANY order. Each book is COMPLETELY separate from the next, so you can read one, or you can read them all!**

Our Review:
“Office relationships, 4 stars”

Chase keeps his head down and his head buried in work. That is until he looks up and sees one of his employees. He didn’t know who she was or what she was capable of doing until he walked in on a conversation he never should have heard. After that Alana is all he can see or think about, especially when she shows up on his balcony.
Alana knows her boss is hot but that kind of gets pushed to the side when she thinks about her job and the fact she’s extremely over qualified. But what if the opportunity to not only get the guy but find the dream job is right in front of her? Will she take it?
I did enjoy these two but they kept forgetting to communicate. There was a lot of explaining going on up in here.  Over all it was a solid story with a HEA.

EXCERPT

“Seriously, did you see the way she looked at me when she told me not to stuff it up?” I huff, stalking back over to Peyton. “Like, God forbid I put two sugars in his damn coffee instead of one. Hey, maybe I should slip some laxatives in there?” I say with an evil grin. “I mean, he walks around like he’s got something lodged up his ass, maybe all he needs is a good, old-fashioned cleanout.”

“Lanna—”

“No. I don’t care how ridiculously sexy he is or how dreamy those blue eyes are to stare into,” I say, cutting her off.

I was on a roll, and Peyton wasn’t going to stop me. I have two years’ worth of frustration to vent, and it’s all coming out now, one way or another.

“He’s an asshole to everyone here but Jade, and I bet that’s only because she’s sucking his cock. Not that I wouldn’t go there if he asked me to—”

“Lanna,” Peyton hisses, her eyes wide.

“Oh, come on, like you wouldn’t suck his cock too,” I retort, nodding knowingly at her. “Hey, maybe we could tag team him.”

We’d had a lengthy discussion about this a few weeks ago over a bottle of tequila, so I knew exactly what she wanted to do with that ten inches of pure stiff muscle. And I thought I was the dirty one. I
chuckle to myself and turn around. My heart skips a beat when I spot Chase leaning against Jade’s desk. He smirks at me and casually lifts one eyebrow.

Oh, god no.

My heart pounds as I wait for him to react. This can’t be happening. I cannot believe I just said that. Well, I can believe it, because I say shit like that every day, but not when he’s standing right behind me. I glare at Peyton, who releases a snort and then flushes, bowing her head. Chase’s eyes don’t leave me as I glance around the room, praying for an escape, but there isn’t one.

It’s like a scene from a really bad movie. With any luck, he’ll drag me outside and throw me on the back of his bike and take me somewhere to have his way with me. Or his office will do just fine.

“Is Jade here?” he asks, directing his question at me, his smooth, deep voice making me shiver.

I shake my head, incapable of speaking. I think it’s worse that he’s ignoring the obvious issue of my outburst. I’d almost prefer for him to say something about it. Anything. Almost... He nods, and then walks over to the door, stopping just as he reaches it. I brace myself as he turns his attention back to me.

“Alana?” he asks.

I force myself to meet his steel blue eyes, wishing he didn’t find this so damn amusing.

“Yes?” I whisper, feeling sick. God, I am so embarrassed.

 “While I appreciate your attentiveness to my health, I can assure you that everything is functioning just as it should. Maybe you should focus more on your job and less on things that don’t concern you?” he asks lightly. “Like who is and isn’t sucking my cock.”

He walks out, briskly closing the door behind him.

I stumble over to my desk and slump down onto my chair, my eyes wide. I breathe out, feeling dazed. My heart’s racing and I’m feeling a mixture of extreme nausea and embarrassment over the whole situation. Every time I think about what I just said, more or less to his face, I
want to throw up.

Peyton rushes over to me, both panicked and trying not to laugh, which under any other circumstance would be a funny combination. I glare at her, which sets her off.

“I’m so sorry,” she giggles, shaking her head. “I swear I’m not laughing at you, but that just made my fucking day.”

“I’m glad I can be a source of amusement for you,” I grumble, my tone sour.

“At least he knows your name now.” she offers, her eyes twinkling.

I scowl at her. I think I preferred it when he didn’t.

OUR REVIEW:


Well, all good things have to come to an end, even Cameron Cole. I tried to read this as slow as I could, knowing once that last word was read, that was it. No more Cameron. Which made this book exciting, gripping, but also a bit scary and sad. 

If on a very small chance you have come across one of my Enthrall series reviews before, then you will know my obsession with this series. This series is everything that is exciting, hot, addictive and mind blowing about adult romance/erotica fiction. 

So we have gone through 3 full length books, which is the main story of beautiful, endearing Mia, and the two gorgeous and powerful Dom's Richard and of course Cameron. Then a further 2 novellas continue Mia and Cameron's story, and another giving Richard his own Happy Ever After, and lastly one giving us an insight into one of Enthrall's top dominatrixes Scarlett. Each and every one of these books/stories are as addictive as the last. 

So here we are, at Enthrall Climax. The eighth and final book in the series, and Cameron and Mia's conclusion. It's always been obvious that Cameron and Mia were pretty much made for each other, that goes without saying, but not everyone seems to think they should be together and will try pretty much anything to split them apart. At any cost. Resulting in a mix of thrilling drama, breath holding tension and face fanning heat. 

So that really is as much as I can fill in, on the background. If you are reading this, and haven't read any of the Enthrall session series, uh why not? Seriously hot foot it to go grab book 1 in the series, it's currently free, what's not to love? But be prepared, once you start this series, there is no stopping, no going back, you will end up consumed by a world that borders on everything that is forbidden and exciting. 

By the time you get to this book, and you will get there, fast. You can then share in my misery that it's all over, and Cameron Cole will no longer be telling his story. Although, I do believe another re-read may be in order. Again. :)


5 HUGE STARS!

Review-Forbidden Lyrics-Jodie Larson

36429746
TITLE - Forbidden Lyrics
AUTHOR - Jodie Larson





Blurb:
Falling in love with your best friend's little sister is never a good idea. Getting caught kissing her, that's even worse.

I watched Lizzie Donovan grow up - from pigtails and scraped knees to pouty lips and lush curves.

It wasn't until one night nine years ago in the front seat of her car, with her lips on mine, that I realized what I was feeling was far more than friendship.

Of course, I felt her brother's wicked left hook shortly after.

One promise was all it took to push her away.

Not anymore.

This is my chance.

I have three months to convince her that she's the song in my heart and we're more than just forbidden lyrics.

Johnaka's Review:
“Forbidden romance, 5 stars”

Brecken has always had a thing for his best friend’s sister, but years ago that idea was stomped out. Now though, those feelings are coming back. Will he be able to score and keep the girl he’s always wanted or will loyalty stand in the way?
Lizzie always dreamed of a life with Breck, it started out innocent enough and then grew over time. When she finally thought all the cards were falling into place her brother came in and ruined it all, but it was for the best. She was too young at the time. But now they are both adults and they still drift towards each other, is this another shot at happily ever after?
I adored both Brecken and Lizzie. She was strong in her own way and was one of the boys growing up. She didn’t have it easy have rockers for brothers but she loved them nonetheless. Now its just a matter of will she let her guard down and keep it down for Breck. Both of them have loyalty in spades when it comes to her brother and he’s the only thing keeping them apart. Will he cave and let his two-favorite people be happy?
