Release Day Review
Josh & Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating
Christina Lauren

Release Date: September 4, 2018
~ Synopsis ~
Most men can’t handle Hazel. With the energy of a toddler and the mouth of a sailor, they’re often too timid to recognize her heart of gold. New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren (RoomiesBeautiful Bastard) tells the story of two people who are definitely not dating, no matter how often they end up in bed together.

Hazel Camille Bradford knows she’s a lot to take--and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun.

Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met--when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes--to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.

Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them...right?

~ Review ~
Not going to lie, Christina Lauren is a new author for me, (gasp) but if this book is any indication of what all of their other books are like I have quite a bit of catching up to do.

I am not sure who I enjoyed more Hazel and her quirky personality or Josh for the way that he just seemed to get her.  In Hazel’s eyes Josh has always been out of her league but after reconnecting after college they seem to find that their differences make them better together.

I absolutely loved the fact that Hazel just didn’t really have a filter, even though a few times I think she may have wanted to keep a few things to herself.  I could feel Josh’s conflict after the “Tabby” incident but his willingness to explore his feelings for Hazel and wait for her to catch up (ha…she was a little bit ahead of him there) was even more endearing.

What can I say about Christina Lauren's writing……effortless.  Well at least that is the way that it appeared. The chapters flowed seamlessly into one another and kept me vested in the story throughout.  Engaging characters will definitely do that.  Let’s just say that I highly recommend this book to someone who has never had that opportunity to read these ladies and will be checking out their past works as well.

Kendall Ryan

~ Synopsis ~
I've waited years for the perfect girl, yet she was right in front of me all along.

My best friend, Natalie, has been by my side through everything. Leaning on my shoulder, borrowing my sweatshirts…and making my pants too tight when she flashes me that sassy smile that drives me crazy.

But she has no idea about that last part. She doesn't have a clue I've felt this way about her for years.

Until one night after too many cocktails, we fall into bed together.

I'm flirting with my forever…she just doesn't know it yet.

~ Review ~

A fun, sexy friends to lovers romance that had me invested from the start. Cam and Natalie are great together. Their friendship comfortable and indestructible, friends to the end. So when this shift in their relationship comes I was happy to see that Kendall stayed true to the characters. Their transition was natural, even if it wasn't always easy. They didn't suddenly become strangers to each other and forget who each other was.

Let's face it Cam was pretty much the perfect doctor. Sweet, thoughtful, and sexy too. His loyalty to his best friend Jack, tested by his feeling for Natalie but the heart can't help what the heart wants. I liked watching Natalie find her own voice. She grew as the story progressed making her stronger in my eyes. I admired her determination not to let her past define her and her ambition to make something for herself.

If you are looking for a sweet romance that will deliver amazing characters and chemistry go grab your copy of Flirting with Forever.

Release Day Blitz & Review
Love Online
Penelope Ward
Cover designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA designs
Cover Model: Eddy Putter
Cover Photography: Nicole Langholz
 ~ Synopsis ~
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.

Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary.

Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.

From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.

She was an addiction.

At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.

Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman.

But I couldn’t really have her.
I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.

So I took a chance.

And that was when our love story really began.

~ Review ~ 
With a title like Love Online I wasn’t quite sure where Penelope was going to take this story. Let’s just say that this story had some sweet, sexy and sad moments in it but was totally an enjoyable and entertaining read. Ryder comes from a world where he doesn’t want for anything and girls are available for his choosing. While looking to escape his so called life Ryder stumbles across a cam girl and finds more than he bargained for.

 I loved Ryder. He was real, raw, sexy, determined and everything Eden needed in her life. She was the perfect example of why you should never judge someone for their actions without the full story.

Watching Eden and Ryder connect online had me rooting for them to take it to the next level. As they spent their evenings chatting trust was building as well as an emotional attachment being made. Their journey may not be a walk on Easy Street but most things in life worth having to take work. Grab your copy of Love Online and see how things turn out for Ryder and Eden

Richer Than Sin
(Sin Triolgy #1)

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.

~ Synopsis ~
A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.
Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.
I didn’t know or care what her name was.
Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.
She hates me, and she should.
I objected on her wedding day.
Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.
They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.
I’ll never be done with her.

 ~ Review ~
A long standing feud between family’s in a small town can make falling for each other a bit complicated but Lincoln and Whitney fell for each other before they knew that they could never be. 

Lincoln swept my off my feet just as quickly as he swept back in to town. Sexy, domineering and very determined to have what is forbidden even after a decade apart. 

Whitney’s return to her home town is just what she needs to escape the prying public eye but puts her right in sights of the one that got away. 

This is the first book in this new Series from Meghan March and I can tell it is going to to be a wild ride. This small town and the Gable and Riscoff families seem to have a web of secrets and lies that we will slowly unveil. 

I was consumed by this story. Eagerly turning the pages to see what was in store for these characters and cannot wait to see where we go from here. Keep in mind that this is a trilogy and this story has just begun.
