BOOK BLURB:
She believes the secret to love is in the tropes of her favorite romance novels. He’s the best friend prepared to prove her wrong.

Then comes the bet.

If she can’t land a boyfriend for prom by recreating the ten popular tropes in her favorite romance author’s books, she has to go to the prom with her.

The glitch?

They’ve been close their entire lives. He’s the rock god and school legend, while she’s the brainy sidekick who does all his dirty breakups. Thus, finding a guy who doesn’t think they’re already an item is going to be a lot harder than she thinks.

Will she land the book boyfriend of her dreams? Or will she be forced to go to prom with her best friend?

The truth is in the pages.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR...

As a child, K.R. Grace had an overactive imagination. When it was obvious she wasn’t going to change anytime soon, her mom shoved a pen and paper in her hand and said, “Write it down.” So, at the age of eight, her first story was born, and the writing hasn’t stopped since. When she’s not running with wolves, sleeping with bears, or flying with falcons, she can be found checking out local bands or watching movies about things that go “boo” in the night. She lives in East Tennessee with a dog that is afraid of his own shadow and a cat that was a mob leader in a former life.

RATING: 3.5 Stars!
CLIFFHANGER: No

BOOK BLURB:
Shame. Panic. Desire. Dominance. Disgust.
All feelings that I was familiar with from the age of sixteen. That's when I met Ana. The girl next door who became so much more.

Until her, I was alone in the dark desires that I didn't understand, that I couldn't reconcile.

My best friend, she accepted me. Helped me see that there was no shame in the things that we both craved. Her submission was a drug, my dominance over her a high that I'd never experienced. When we were together, I was at peace for the first time in my life.

But it was too good to last. Our own guilt over our feelings, of our appetite for pain and pleasure, destroyed us.

I was convinced that all I needed was a chance, just one more chance to overcome my shame, and Ana would be able to trust me again.

If only it were that easy.

REVIEWER'S NOTE: Shame Me Not is an Erotic, Romance written by Fiona Cole. I was gifted a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review through Foreword PR & Marketing.


3.5 “normal is overrated” Stars!

The Review: 
Wow, what a ride! From beginning to end, this read had me consuming the pages in a rush to get to the exciting conclusion of Ana and Kevin’s story. I HAD to see how their story ended. Some parts I LOVED. Some parts I didn’t, which I’ll explain below. But through all the growing pains, indecision, awkwardness, sexiness, intensity and miscommunication, I found the journey to be totally worth it. This read was super sexy with two main characters who had explosive chemistry and the story was so well told, I just couldn’t put it down until I got to the last page!

Story/Characters... 
Sixteen year old Ana Montgomery has just moved to Cincinnati from Nashville, with her mom, after her parents divorce. Being a sophomore in high school was hard enough, but add on being the new girl in a small Catholic school with desires that some might not consider normal, she fears making friends will be hard to do.

That is until she meets her next door neighbor, Kevin Harding, who immediately brings her into his social group.

There’s an instant attraction between Ana and Kevin, but both of them needing their friendship more than “something more” and both of them thinking their dark desires may disgust the other, they decide to keep it at a friends-only relationship.

Until one day Ana discovers Kevin’s dark secret and realizes they are the same as her own.

That one discovery starts a years long journey of self discovery, confusion, miscommunication and absence, but one thing that holds strong throughout the years and distance, is their friendship. And I LOVED that!

I enjoyed this read so much. I was hooked from the moment Ana and Kevin were introduced and I connected with them both immediately. A sex scandal rocked their high school a couple of years before and Kevin, being the son of a senator, feared his penchant for rough sex would be discovered, destroying him and his family like the scandal did with one of his peers. So he hid his desires and swore to try and ignore it, thinking there was something wrong with him. He didn’t want anyone to think he was disgusting, especially being raised in a Catholic school, where being a deviant was considered wrong and abnormal.

Ana, who also harbored dark desires, tries to date the “normal” guy, and even tried to have a normal sex life, but it never fulfilled her. She, too, thought she was alone, but once she discovers that her best friend and the boy she’s always crushed on, also desired those things, she decides maybe there’s hope. 

Ana and Kevin had amazing chemistry together, even while they were discovering and exploring who they were as teenagers. It was sweet and exciting and I loved how the author really showed their progression into adulthood. 

They journey through their young adult life together, suffering all the trappings of teenage life but also with this extra thing that set them apart from their peers. Watching them find themselves and navigate through life was so well written and you could tell the author really poured her heart and soul into the feelings her words invoked in the reader.

But... 
My only real dislike was with Ana’s character. In the beginning, she was strong, helping Kevin accept himself, accept that he wasn’t a bad person for needing the things he needed and allowing them to self-explore together. After one heartbreaking argument, she leaves behind her best friend and spends the next four years trying to be someone she’s not. Though it was never really explored in the story, that one argument I think broke her fragile strength. It made her hesitant to be herself and to tell her partners what she really needed. After she reconnects with Kevin, it takes years and one more term of absence for Kevin to break through Ana’s walls and convince her she’s not a bad person and that their brand of normal is okay. I hated her indecision. She thought he abandoned her, but she also abandoned him. And then she kept wavering back and forth, thinking she NEEDED to be “normal” to be accepted, but there was Kevin, who she loved, and who loved her, waiting in the wings, accepting of everything she was and of what they could be together. Watching her spend years trying to talk herself out of being who she really was, and watching her reject Kevin over and over, was so freaking painful ... and it made her look weak. But I did love Kevin’s persistence. He spent years waiting for her, watching her waver back and forth, knowing she didn’t trust him, watching her go through other relationships she thought were better for her than him. But he loved her. He loved what they were together. He loved her as his best friend, as his “something more”, and he was determined to take care of her. He knew he broke her trust but boy do I think the consequences outweighed the crime.

Like I said, Ana frustrated me.

The Wrap Up: 
All in all, this read was a beautiful, erotic tale of two young people who were on a journey of self-discovery and who had trouble accepting themselves but ultimately won that battle with patience, love and understanding. I wasn’t always a fan of the character choices, but with brave, intelligent, sexy writing and a story that will remain with me for a long time to come, I can honestly say I enjoyed this read.

COVER REVEAL - PRETTY RECKLESS by Jane Anthony:


TITLE: Pretty Reckless
AUTHOR: Jane Anthony
AGE GROUP:
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
RELEASE DATE: August 22, 2017
COVER DESIGNED BY: Dani Rene’/Raven Designs
COVER RELEASE COORDINATED BY:
Forever Valentine PR


BOOK BLURB:
Addiction: the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity.

Love: feel a deep romantic or sexual attachment to (someone)

Amazing how two words with vastly different definitions can have the same adverse effect on the spirit. I may be an addict, but I’m no longer foolhardy enough to be addicted to one man. No, this girl finds her comfort in thirst quenching liquid -- it dulls the pain caused by tainted love.

True love may exist, but not for me.

Reckless: without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action

The guy I used to be is a distant memory. I left him in the past, vowing never to be that man again. But never say never, right? This time, I became him out of need. Need for her. She only let me in assuming I enjoyed being on the outside, at arm’s length. But the more I fight the desire brewing in my veins, the harder she is to resist.

Wrong for each other, but carved from the same stone.
He is my rock.
She is my air.

But rocks shatter, and if you get high enough, air becomes unbreathable.

No matter how good it might seem, getting wrapped up in each other is pretty reckless...

MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 4.5 Stars!
CLIFFHANGER: No

BOOK BLURB:
The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.
He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend--smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done.
Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.
Only it turned out, the man I'd just told off wasn't the right guy.

Oops.  My mistake.

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.
I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?
That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.
Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.
I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.

This was going to be interesting…


REVIEWER'S NOTE: Beautiful Mistake is an Adult, Contemporary Romance written by Vi Keeland. I was gifted a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review through InkSlinger PR.


4.5 “Feisty” Stars!
Outstanding stand alone! A definite must read! 

The Review: 
Already a long time fan of this author, I can never say no to one of her books. And this book was no different. I loved the swoon-worthy, full circle story. I loved the warring, passionate characters. And I very much enjoyed the talented writing. All equaling to a must-read that I didn’t put down until I hit the last word on the last page! And even then, I hated seeing it end.

Story/Characters... 
Rachel Martin hasn’t dated since her short term boyfriend/roommate/good friend broke up with her eight months ago. Being a music major at Brooklyn College, she doesn’t really have time for relationships, but when she finds one, she wants it to have potential. Not just be a one night stand. She’s also not the traditional music major who excels in any one instrument or sings or even writes lyrics. She just loves music. Paying her way through college and working full time at O’Leary’s bar and signing on to be Professor West’s new TA after her last professor passed away, she needs the added income to pay her way but when she meets her hot new professor, lines get blurred real fast.

Caine West (gah! love that name!), music professor at Brooklyn College, has a dark past filled with regret and pain. He doesn’t do commitments and he shies away from beautiful women who might want more, but the moment he meets Rachel, her sassy mouth and her “don’t mess with me attitude” draw him in.

One of the things I love most about this author is she always introduces the main characters in the most fun and unique way. Right from the jump, you know this is going to be a wild ride. When these two meet, it’s instant hot-tempers and combustible fireworks! But there’s also that delicious slow build that makes romances worth reading.

Rachel and Caine are super hot together! Rachel, though having a painful past, wasn’t crippled by what had happened to her and all she’d been through. She was compassionate, determined, strong and still light-hearted at times. Caine... wow, that man was s-e-e-e-e-exy! From the moment he and Rachel are introduced, they are at odds with an underlying sexual tension that had me anxiously turning the pages to see what happened next. He might come off as a closed-off, aloof playboy, but he had a deep, soulful heart and an incredible insight into all things ... except himself. He just couldn’t see the caring person he was and it made him all the more attractive.

The Wrap Up: 
With dual POV’s and an easy to follow timeline, Beautiful Mistake was definitely beautiful but absolutely no mistake at all. It was flirty, fun, intelligent with a bit of angsts and so totally unputdownable! I loved everything about it!
