Welcome to the
Giveaway Hop!
Hosted by BookHounds

I love summer time reading. I'm usually a little bit less busy during the summer months, so it's a good time for me to catch up on books I've not read yet. I try to make it a half and half situation. Half new releases and half older releases that I never got a chance to read.

A book I just got to read and one that is a new release is BAD BOY BRODY by Tijan! I LOVED this book. It was so, so good! I'm a huge Tijan fan anyhow, but this one was a little bit different than her past releases and the story was perfect for a splash into summer read.

Sooooo, I'm giving away a SIGNED copy of it along with everything else pictured below.

Thanks for being a part of Craves the Angst and I hope your summer is filled with ton of great reads!

from debut author Miranda Elaine is coming June 28th!

TITLE: Fixing Her
AUTHOR: Miranda Elaine
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
PUBLISHING DATE: June 28th, 2018

When we were younger, Temperance Price was the quiet girl with dreamy eyes who hung on my every word. She was always beautiful, but I had plans to get out of Red Oak and make a life of my own. 

Ten years later, a crushing tragedy has brought me home again—right back to her. 

The innocent girl I left is gone, and in her place is a sassy single mom I can’t get out of my head. She’s hired me to fix her house, but I have other things in mind. 

She thinks I’m just a handyman. 
She thinks we’re only friends. 
She thinks I’ve never noticed her. 

I think what really needs to be fixed is her whole perspective.


Miranda is a loving wife and barely surviving mother of three occasionally good kids.

Her hobbies include lying to herself about the calories in donuts and banana pudding, as well as running out of excuses when procrastinating.

She's been an avid reader since she was a young girl. Whether she's by the pool, curled up in bed, or hiding in the closet, as long as she has a book in her hands she’s happy.

Enticing Journey Book Promotions

Jaxon Holland is more than a top-scoring center for the Las Vegas Wolves—he’s also the biggest “player” on the team. Women love him, flock to him, lust for his sculpted body.

Yeah, life is good for this hockey player.

Or it was until lately.

After blowing a key play in what may have been the biggest game of the season, the fans sour on Jaxon. Good thing memories are short, right? Uh, they’re not when a widely popular sports blogger, known simply as Mr. Hockeypants, calls Jaxon out and places all the blame for the loss on him.

Life goes from bad to worse, and Jaxon wants to get away.

Good thing one of his teammates has a beautiful, secluded beach house he can escape to. Sand, sun, surf, and lots of alone time sound good to this disgruntled centerman.

Only problem is the beach house is already occupied—by beautiful and spunky Cara Milne.

Cara and Jaxon are off to a rocky start after an extremely awkward first meeting. Yeah, these two pretty much hate each other. But Jaxon, forever a “player” at heart, vows to win his housemate over.

What he doesn’t know is Cara is Mr. Hockeypants! His worst enemy, the bane of his existence!

And she’s determined that he never finds out.

Too bad keeping a secret is more slippery than ice, especially when you start falling in love with the guy you almost destroyed.

Player on Ice is the fifth standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

Praise for the Boys of Winter series:
"Hilarious and perfectly 'played' sports romance that I devoured in one sitting!
I can't wait to read more."
- #1 NYT Bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken

"The usual Grey crisp writing, lovable heroes that you kinda want to slap, and a
heroine that doesn't back down," Resistance on Ice is another fun standalone
novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.”
- Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills

* Book Excerpt for PLAYER ON ICE *

“Wow, you look rather happy all of a sudden,” he says. 

“I am, Jaxon.” I reply. “I am.”

“Does this mean you reached a resolution?”

“I sure have. I decided to stop with all the overthinking and just go with what my heart’s been telling me to do for a long time now.”

Ooh, now he looks really curious.

“What does that mean?” he asks, our eyes meeting.

I take a deep breath, and then blurt out in a rush of words, “It means I’m tired of fighting the inevitable.”

His eyes bore into me, and I swear he already knows what I mean. He knows I’m referring to him…to us.

Swallowing hard, he steps out from behind the kitchen counter, looking gorgeous, as always. His hair’s a little damp, making it darker than the usual sandy-brown shade. He’s wearing khaki shorts and a royal blue tee, which shows off his bronze skin perfectly. Jaxon’s tan, like me, but so very buff, so freaking hard.

I watch his defined leg muscles flex as he takes a purposeful step toward me.

When he’s less than a foot away, he stops and rasps, “So what is your heart telling you to do at this very moment, Cara?”

I stare at his bare feet, tan like the rest of him.

Then I glance up, chuckling nervously. “Uh, it’s telling me to do a lot of things.”

He whispers, “Name just one.”

Just as softly, I respond, “Well, right now, my heart’s telling me those burgers can wait.”

He cocks a brow. “And…?”

“Hey, you said I only had to name one.”

He shrugs, smirking. “I lied. Tell me one more.”

It’s time to be more honest with him than I’ve been with myself.

I take a deep breath, then say, “My heart’s telling me I should kiss the heck out of you right now…since you’re so freaking close.”

“Shit, sweetheart.” He smiles. “I agree. Your heart is abso-fucking-lutely right.”

Months of confusion reach a moment of clarity. And there’s no stopping us from coming together now.

So we do….
