COVER REVEAL - ALL GROWN UP by Vi Keeland is coming soon!


TITLE: All Grown Up
RELEASE DATE: July 8th, 2019
SERIES/GENRE: A Standalone Contemporary Romance
AUTHOR: #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland

MODEL: Christian Hogue www.imdmodeling.com
COVER DESIGNER: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative


BOOK BLURB:
When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious.  Young, gorgeous, successful, smart.  Did I mention young?  If I did, it bears repeating.  Ford Donovan was too young for me.

Let’s back up to how it all started.  My best friend decided I needed to start dating again.  So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site—one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date.  Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration.  The profile wasn’t supposed to go live.  Another point that bears repeating—it wasn’t supposed to.  

Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging.  He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends.  But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date only—my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart.  I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.

Though, you know what they say…curiosity kills the cat.

My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.
Ford was seated at the bar.  When he turned around, he took my breath away.
His sexy smile nearly melted my panties.  
But…he looked so familiar.  
As I got closer I realized why.  
He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home. 
The boy next door.
Only now…he was all man.  
I hadn’t seen him in years.
I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me.  
Which I did.  Until summer came.
And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?

COVER REVEAL - THE MOTH AND THE FLAME (When Rivals Play #2) by B.B. Reid is coming soon!


The Moth and the Flame returns to the world of Blackwood Keep, rival gangs, and deliciously flawed yet completely addicting characters!

The Moth and the Flame, the second romantic standalone in the When Rivals Play series by B.B. Reid is coming May 20, 2019!

TITLE: The Moth and the Flame
SERIES: When Rivals Play #2
AUTHOR: B.B. Reid
GENRE: Contemporary Romance 
RELEASE DATE: May 20, 2019
COVER DESIGNER: Humble Creations 
PHOTOGRAPHER: Rafa G. Catala
COVER MODEL: Vicente Romero Cerro


BOOK BLURB:

THE FLAME

Here lies Louchana Valentine. She was a homeless, orphaned virgin.

I never cared what my gravestone would say until I landed in deep with a powerful gangster. Lucky for me, my best friend happens to be ruthless too. I should feel guilty that he’s forced to turn on the man who’s been a father to him. Except I’ve always known that Wren’s soul wasn’t as black as he claimed.

He was good.
He was beautiful.
He was mine.
He just didn’t know it yet.

And with Wren keeping me safe, I’ve got time left to rewrite the end of my story. But if he has his way, virgin is already carved in stone.

THE MOTH

I’ve never known anyone as alluring as Lou. Or as frustrating. Since the night she saved my life and stole my wallet for her troubles, I couldn’t stay away.

She became my onus.
My light.
My…anyway.

With nowhere to run, I’m forced to trust someone I never expected. At least with Lou safe in Blackwood Keep—far away from me—I’ll die with my conscience intact. Because she no longer looks at me with friendship in her eyes. Those iridescent blues shine with a different need entirely, and I’ve never been able to deny her.

It is strongly advised that you read The Peer and the Puppet before diving into The Moth and the Flame. Content suitable for ages 18+.

MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 5 Stars!
CLIFFHANGER: No.

BOOK BLURB:
We were supposed to be best friends
But turned out to be worst enemies…
Penn

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart is completely iced.
I took her first kiss.
She took the only thing I loved.
I was poor.
She was rich.
The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.
Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.
Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.
Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.
There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.
Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.

Daria

Everyone loves a good-old, unapologetic punk.
But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.
The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.
In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.
Four years ago, he asked me to save all of my firsts for him.
Now he lives across the hall, and there’s nothing I want more than to be his last everything.
His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.
Now? Now he is making me pay.


REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.


5 Stars!
Binge Read Alert!!

The Review: 
Oh my “Marx”! This book... WOW. Just wow!

You want feels? It’s here. You want angsts? It’s here!

You want a book you can sink into and only be pried out by the threat of a zombie apocalypse... and even then it’s questionable? (Let them get eaten!) IT’S HERE! This book. This is the one to read to get your binge read on.

Story/Characters... 
Remember the original HotHoles from the “Sinners of Saint” series? Yeah? I mean, who could forget them, right? That’s where I fell in love with this author and her fabulous alpha-holes. This series features their offspring. And this book? Is about Daria Followhill, daughter of Jaime and Melody from “Defy”.

You think Daria Followhill has everything. Beauty. Security. Popularity. And dance. She has a fabulous life. An envious life. She’s spoiled. She’s bratty. And she’s jealous. Under that perfect exterior, there are depths to her secrets and looks are the most deceiving thing of all.

Penn Scully is tough. His life is a mess. He doesn’t have the family. The money. The privilege. His life is beyond complicated.

Daria and Penn meet for the first time when she’s fourteen. She thinks her life is spiraling out of control, so he does her a favor. She repays him with a kiss. That one act irrevocable act changed everything for both of them.

Four years later, Penn is back and he has vengeance in mind. Daria has redemption.

There’s angsts. Oh, the angsts!
There are complications. Que the rollercoaster ride of emotions.
There is hate. There is lust. There is a fine line to be crossed.
There is fiery chemistry! Shew... 

This story is intense. It’s stressful. It’s painful.

It’s phenomenal!

I loved it. From beginning to end, it was one thing after another and the author does a beautiful job of immersing the reader into their chaotic world, but also guiding us through so that each twist and turn is breath-stealing and breath-taking.

I wanted to hate Daria. But I couldn’t. Not really. Once all her layers were peeled back, once her mask was removed ... there was a lot going on and the author did an amazing job showing this reader her depth.

I loved Penn from the start. L.J. Shen knows how to write an alpha-hole you can’t help but love and adore. Penn was that kind of characters. Tough. Conflicted. Layered. And hot!

The Wrap Up... 
This is definitely an enemies-to-lovers read you’ll binge. I couldn’t put it down and I’m so freaking excited for the next tale in this series!

Book Excerpt for PRETTY RECKLESS by LJ Shen
“I don’t want you transferring into my school,” I hiss out. Melody would gladly file a transfer request, and Principal Prichard would salivate over the chance to snatch him up for our football team. 

“That won’t be a problem. You guys suck so much ass, you have shit-breath.” 

“Still smells better than poverty. You’re poor, right? Your sister was just bullshitting about being rich.” 

When someone hits me with a stick, I run over them with a tank. I’m so mean to him I want to throw up. I hate this part of being me. The striking harder at all costs part.

“Just to make things clear.” I put the brush down, batting my lashes. “You’re not my step-sibling, foster brother, or a part of the family. You’re a stray dog. Last of the litter, most unlikely to be adopted, and a charity case.”

Penn takes a step toward me, and my heart is fighting its way out of my ribcage. The closer he gets, the more I realize that my heart might succeed. Penn’s eyes remind me of a snake’s. Mesmerizing, but inhuman altogether. They weren’t like that before. 

His scent messes with my head. I want to reach out and caress his face. Kiss his wounds better. Beg for forgiveness. Curse him. Push him away. Cry on his shoulder for what we’ve done. For how it ended. For what we became afterwards, because I’m full of crap and he is totally empty. 

We ruined ourselves the day of our first kiss.

Penn looks down at me. Time stops. It feels like the world is losing gravity, falling into a bottomless depth in space when he clasps my chin with his thumb and finger, lifting my head up. I can’t breathe. I’m not sure I want to, either. My towel drops to the floor with a thud, even though I secured it over my chest. I realize that he tugged at it intentionally. I’m naked. My body, my soul, my heart. All my walls are down. Somewhere in my head, a red alarm blasts and my inhibitions are getting armed, ready to fight back. 

I’m trying to decode his expression. He is amused, irritated, and…playful? 

The mixture of emotions doesn’t make any sense. 

“Mess with me, Followhill, and I will ruin you.”

“Not if I ruin you first.”

But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face.

But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past.  Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? And can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her? And what will she do when she learns that he’s been hiding secrets of his own?

From the heart of London through wild, rural Cornwall to the bleak, forbidding beauty of the Balkans, The Mister is a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page.
