Blog Tour & Review for Wild Card by Karina Halle

Wild Card, an all-new contemporary STANDALONE by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is available NOW!!!


Wild Card is a standalone novel and the first book in the North Ridge Trilogy about rough and rugged Canadian mountain men, the Nelson brothers. Canada’s never felt so hot.
She swore she’d never go back home.
She swore she’d never see the man who broke her all those years ago.
But you don’t always get to choose your path.
And sometimes that path is as wild and rugged as the heart.
Rachel Waters thought she saw the last of the small mountain town of North Ridge, British Columbia, when she left six years ago. But while her advertising career blossomed beneath the skyscrapers of Toronto, her mother’s sudden illness has the 26-year old returning to North Ridge to care for her, putting her career on hold while dealing with family secrets, regrets and unresolved goodbyes.
Shane Nelson has always been a bit of a wild card. The youngest of three brothers, Shane’s spent most of his life being underestimated and misunderstood. With his quiet intensity, classic good looks and thoughtful demeanor, he’s an enigma on horseback, managing his father’s sprawling ranch on the slopes of North Ridge.
But while Shane remains the quintessential brooding cowboy, complete with an arsenal of inner demons, all of that changes when Rachel steps back into his life.
She was the girl he pushed away.
Now she’s the girl who wishes she could leave.
Despite the odds, Shane will do everything to convince Rachel he needs a second chance that he doesn’t deserve but when the two of them head off into the wilderness together in search of lost cattle, more than just their hearts are at stake.
Whether it's love or lives on the line, one thing is for sure: always bet on the wild card.

Review: 4 STARS!!

Karina Halle is one of my favorite authors and this book just proves why!! This book has some very delicate situations and that is the only reason I gave this book 4 stars, because there are certain things I just can't or don't like reading about, but other than that, this book was AMAZING!!

I love a good second chance romance story and this one was a great one that will have you on the edge of your seat almost the entire time. Shane & Rachel have a beautiful & complicated history and when she comes back home after years of being away, it seems like their future is going to be complicated also.

Rachel has been through the ringer most of her life, until she met Shane and he was her light, until he wasn't. For what happened to Rachel and the fact that she is still sane and still fighting and still standing, it really shows how much strength her character actually has. I think her anger and sadness are very justified, but at the same time, the heart wants what the heart wants.

Shane lives with guilt and pain everyday because he lost the only woman that he has ever loved and the things he said to her weren't true but he needed to push her away. I understood his side also and I think if it were anyone else, they would have done the same thing. I loved how persistent Shane was. He knew that he and Rachel were meant for each other and he never stopped showing her that or fighting for her.

This couple has a lot of obstacles and past hurt and past lies that they need to navigate through, but if they do it together, they can get through anything. Their chemistry was off the charts HOT and the connection they have didn't diminish over time, it is still there, strong and sturdy, years later. I loved the secondary characters and the little romances that I saw brewing and I cannot wait for the next book in this series!!

Release Day Blitz & Review for Cockloft by K.C. Lynn


Title: COCKLOFT
Author: KC Lynn
Release Date: August 18, 2017
TBR Link: Goodreads



Synopsis


Cockloft: A firefighter term used as a structural space above ceiling and below rafters, often connecting adjacent occupancies and permitting fire to spread laterally, often unseen.

Gabriel Martinez is the most arrogant and infuriating man I’ve ever met. He has a knee-weakening smirk that makes me want to kiss—no—slap it off his rude, sexy face. Judging by his ego, you’d think the hose in his pants is as big as the one on his fire truck. Not that I know anything about that nor do I want to. Nope, not at all. He’s already been forgotten like last season’s Michael Kors.

CeCe Kensington is as pretentious and spoiled as they come. The ridiculous purses she shoulders around are as big as her attitude. And don’t get me started on her mile-long legs or full, glossy lips that are meant to be wrapped around a guy’s… If she only knew the dirty things I think about doing to that sassy mouth of hers, she'd be hightailing it back to her side of town.

✿¸.•´¸✿*´¨) ¸.•*¨✿

When the beautiful boutique owner and sexy firefighter meet in the most unlikely situation, their two worlds collide, creating an explosion of misperceptions and combustible heat, trapping them in a fire they never saw coming.

Review: 5 STARS!!

K.C. Lynn is a master of words and is one of my favorite authors EVER!! This book blew all of my expectations and assumptions out of the water!! Gabe & CeCe's book isn't your normal boy meets girl and falls in love, no, there is humor, insecurities, passion, doubt, hope & love woven in throughout this book and I LOVED every second reading it.

CeCe was hilarious! She is not afraid to be herself and she is not afraid to speak her mind. She is hard working and a very successful business owner. She loves fiercely and deeply and if you get on her bad side, duck and cover, because there may be a heel or two that she throws at you. I loved her friendship with Emily; they were more like sisters and I loved the fact that she and Ryder can rib each other, but in brother/sister type of way. When Cece meets Gabe, it is a battle of wills on both ends and sometimes, CeCe does win, but she also doesn't mind giving up control to him. I loved that CeCe neevr judged him or his upbringing or where he grew up. She really isn't what people would expect and that is one of the best parts about her.

Gabe is one sexy firefighter!! I loved how he and CeCe first met, and she didn't care that the building was of fire and he didn't care about anything else except for getting her safety, but once they wer on solid ground, the battle of wills began. Gabe actually assumed things about CeCe that weren't true, but he was stereotyping and he was put in his place and fast by CeCe. She actually helped him open his mind and his heart to new things and showed him that not everything or everyone is what they seem sometimes. I loved how Gabe wasn't scared of CeCe, he admired her tenaciousness and drive. He respected her adn treated her like a queen and then in the bedroom, he took her to new heights she has only dreamed of. Gabe was very protective and very loyal; you see it with him and CeCe but you also see if with him and his family. I loved his family, they were warm and welcoming and you could tell they were all close. Gabe has some issues with his dad and I understood his anger and dislike towards him, but at the same time, I just wanted to shake Gabe and tell him to let it go. CeCe really helped Gabe open his eyes, mind and heart to new and different things and people.

These two characters couldn't have been more different and that is what makes them perfect for each other. Their chemistry was off the charts and their passion for each other was HOT!!! K.C. Lynn is an AMAZING writer and this book was an AMAZING experience to read. I cannot wait for what she comes out with next!!

Cover Reveal for Cuffed by K. Bromberg

WE ARE EXCITED TO BRING YOU THE COVER FOR CUFFED BY NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR K.BROMBERG RELEASING ON OCTOBER 23!

Design: Helen Williams
Photographer: Wander Aguiar

From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them. 

“I hate you. I never want to see you again.” 

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again. 

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past. 

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it. 

What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right

*** 

I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves. 

That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up. 

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story. 

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

Review Blitz for Royally Endowed by Emma Chase

     


Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??


Sexy. As. Hell.


And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.


For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.


To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.


The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.


But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go. *** Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.


Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.


But there’s only one woman he wants.


For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.


He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.


But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.


Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

Excerpt


Ellie
            But then the mood shifts, as if the air becomes thicker, weighted, more . . . sultry.
            Because slowly, Logan sinks down to one knee in front of me—looking in my eyes the whole time. In this position, I could touch his shoulders, comb my fingers through his thick, dark hair. He’s the perfect height for me to bend down and kiss his mouth—the perfect height for him to kiss me back . . . in a lot of places.
            My breath hitches. And I wonder he feels it too.
            There’s a sound of tearing Velcro, and Logan takes something off his ankle—a holster, with a small silver knife, about three inches long.
            “Keep this on you all the time,” he says seriously. “Just in case. If you wear a skirt, the strap will fit around your thigh.”
            And I almost laugh. Most girls get a ring from a guy on his knees. I get a murder weapon. But still, it makes me feel safe . . . watched over. Like I’m something precious that deserves to be protected.
            I take the knife from him, testing the surprisingly solid, heavy weight of it in my hand. I press my index finger to the tip.
            Logan grabs my wrist tightly. “Careful. It’s sharp.”
            There’s a small, painless nick, a tiny bead of blood, so I put my finger in my mouth, sucking.
            And Logan’s watching me again.
            Watching my mouth.
            His chest seems to rise just a little faster, and his throat ripples when he swallows. He bends his head, curves his strong back, and then I feel his hands on my ankle, securing the strap. His touch is warm and self-assured. It’s the way he always moves—confident and experienced.           Logan knows his body and he knows how to use it, in every way possible.
            I almost moan. The sound is in the back of my throat, but I keep it trapped. I never knew the ankle was an erogenous zone, but it sure as hell is now. A hot pulse of pleasure streaks from Logan’s fingers on my bare skin, up my thigh, between my legs.
            And I throb there, growing swollen and heavy as he keeps his hands on me.
            Can he tell? Does he know? He’s so aware of everything, always so attuned, I wonder if he can sense my arousal . . . feel it in the air that clings between us.


Review: 5 STARS!!

This book was fantastic!! I love this series and the princes are fabulous, but I loved the fact that Olivia's sister got a book!!

Ellie wasn't born royalty, but her sister married a royal and with how close Olivia and Ellie are, Ellie was not not going to come and live at the palace with them. I loved that this book spanned from the ending of the first book, Royally Screwed, because then we saw some scenes from Royally Matched, but in a different POV.

I loved that Ellie fell in love with a man who wasn't royalty, but he protected them. Logan was strong and intelligent and Ellie was free & spontaneous. We saw Ellie grow up in this book and seeing how she transformed from girl to woman was a very critical aspect of this book and with Logan & Elie's relationship. Logan was always there for her and protected her and the royal family with everything he had. I loved that Nicholas & Henry treated him with respect and brought him into their fold. Ellie always had a crush on Logan, but Logan, being the respectable man that he is, never crossed that line...until now.

These two make such a great pair, because they both are down to earth and they balance each other out really well. I loved seeing the sisterly bond that Olivia and Ellie have; it's strong and they really lean and rely on each other, Olivia, not so much now, because of Nicholas and Ellie with Logan, but still, there are times. I loved seeing Nicholas & Olivia and Henry & Sarah and how their relationships are progressing; Sarah definitely was the comic relief at times throughout this book. I think this book really took a fantastic series and made it that much better. Logan & Ellie had a connection that was deep and a chemistry that was off the charts HOT!! 

Emma Chase is one of my favorite authors and this book is one of my favorites by her. I am very excited for what she comes out with next!!

Prologue
The gun is steady in my hand, the weight of it not giving me a bit of comfort. The cold of the metal, the unforgiving of its mold matches the way I feel inside. Hardened steel, molded and made by the hands of men, the firearm gives me no fear and only feeds the burning in my soul for retribution.
Aiming it at him, thoughts of how I got to this place rush through me. The choices that were stripped, the consequences of actions and life that was altered and changed forever. All of it weighs heavy on me, but my strong shoulders hold it.
Being a warrior is in my blood carried through me from my parents. Eye for an eye is our motto and they would expect nothing less from me.
The blood pumping through my veins was once a life source. Now, my sole focus, and the fury that courses through me is fueled with every beat of my heart by vengeance. 
He looks up at me, eyes blank.
“Bye, Ryker.”
Without a second thought, or a moment of hesitation, I pull the trigger.
