That Guy by @bellebrooks @ejbookpromos


Title: That Guy
Author: Belle Brooks
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 8, 2018

 

 


A modern way of finding love. One deserted island of luxury. Two people. Three out cards. And a whole lot of possibilities.
 
Melinda takes the advice of her best friend, Chris. She signs up to a new dating service that pairs you statistically to the one you’re supposed to love. Finding it — love that is — using the more conventional methods, has not been a successful venture for Mindy, and with her biological clock ticking, she uses a more desperate method and takes the plunge into a possible happily ever after.
 
The thing is, when she boards the boat to a secret location, she doesn’t realise the man waiting for her is someone she’s previously met.
Chance encounters occur more frequently than we realise. Being blind to them is part of a bustling world. But, being faced with them can lead to a hilarious three weeks between two opposites who might just attract.
 

“OMG this book was bloody hilarious; I laughed till I had to cross my legs and run to the loo (you’ll get this if you have kids like me)My other half thought I was losing the plot and kept giving me concerned glances with the strange noises that were coming from my corner of the lounge.” – Beckie Bookworm

 

“This book is every bit as entertaining as every other review is going to tell you, and I highly recommend this as a must read! You just have to, you won’t be sorry. 5 wet myself laughing Stars.” – Marnie

 

“‘THAT GUY’ gets a phenomenal 5* from me. I really cannot recommend this highly enough. I do know that if you are a fan of RomComs or Ms. Brooks .. this book needs to be read for the full effect.” – Trish Brown

Inciting a Riot by Karen Renee @karenreneewrite


 

 

Tucker took one step back from me to take in my dress. His lips pursed and shifted to the side, and then he nodded at me. I couldn’t hear him over the frantic beats of Moby, but I could read his lips were saying, “You’re right.” He turned his back on me, and without allowing me to decide which pair I wanted to wear, his right hand shoved my Jimmy Choo Koko high-heeled sandals at me. Don’t get me wrong, they were stellar shoes, but I wasn’t certain they were the shoes I wanted to wear for the evening. When I didn’t immediately take them from Tucker’s outstretched hand, his head swiveled to me and he glared.

I glared even as I took the shoes from him. I moved toward the bed to assess my other two pairs of shoes, but Tucker immediately put the shoe-box lids on them. My casted right hand went immediately to my hip, and my left motorcycle boot clad foot shot out at an angle. The other two men in the room felt my vibe and Tucker looked up at them. Then he looked to me and straightened.

“Problem?” he asked, and I could hear him because the song had ended.

“I’d like to look at the other two pairs of shoes I asked you to bring, if you don’t mind.”

Let me tell you, heterosexual men were not the only males of the species who could turn alpha on a girl. My snippy comment had effectively poked the alpha within Tucker. He moved into my space and growled at me, “I mind. Did you two favors tonight, Frankie. I got your shoes and brought them up here, and I took in your excellent dress and made the decision on which of these three pairs of shoes were most appropriate. Don’t insult me by second-guessing me. Switch your shoes and I’ll walk you out to put the others in the back of your ride.”

My lips were set in a firm, straight line as I fought to hold on to my temper. Reggie entered the room at that point with two glasses of wine in hand.

He stopped mid-stride. “Uh-oh. What have I walked in on here?”

One of the two men in the room said, “A showdown. This should be fun.”

Reggie looked from the man back to Tucker and me. “Oh. Yes, you never should have included a pair of knock-off Choos in your request for shoe options, dear. If Tuck has proclaimed you should wear those shoes in your hand, then you need to do as he advises. When it comes to fashion on other people, he is not wrong. You know this, Frankie.”

I slowly turned my head to the left to look at Reggie and just as slowly I raised an eyebrow at him. He shrugged at me, and I realized I did know that Tucker had excellent fashion sense. It was like the way some people had a natural card-sense when playing poker, bridge, or gin-rummy. Tucker was blessed with an innate sense of fashion and what suited individual people as well as their bodies and coloring. I didn’t like this aspect of Tucker’s personality, not his fashion brilliance, but his alpha-esque pushiness about it.

“Fine,” I huffed as I plopped my ass on the bed and began to untie my motorcycle boots.

Power Player: Anti-Hero Game (Power Chain Book 2) by Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele @ChelseaCamaron @Ryan_Michele #Review


 

Four boys.
One game that changed everything.
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
None of these boys were weak. Go back to where it all began.
Welcome to the Power Chain, the underworld built on an unbreakable bond.

 

Holy SHIT people!

Book 2 was just as good as book 1. This novel however, did have some added angst, some more drama, and the dynamic foursome. The plot was really good! Not getting into the background unless the character has his own book is genius. You get the point that these 4 men have great loyalty to one another even if they don’t approve of their profession or their role in the foursome. VERY interesting.

 

You will get a little more involved in why Pax loves Dane but also why they hate each other. No spoilers but when a friend is heated I need to ask = How much do you need to love your friend to let him punch the shit outta you? That is loyalty! Loyalty is what you expect from friends who know the real you. Paxton and Onyx show real loyalty, the meaning of friendship and family.

They will hurt you with the truth all the time. Nobody realizes this more than Laurel! The Riley character had me so up in angst. He was a complete screw up, but she stood beside him even when he did the dumbest thing anyone could do. I want to spill what the dumb thing was but….it was GOOD and it is too good to spoil. You just have to read this and let your jaw drop! The authors did a great job at creating Riley in a way that made you love him. I was thinking he is the dumbest but you have to love way he has faith, yes faith that is so innocent in a refreshing way.

Being this is Paxton’s book you do get more of the growing up background for Pax and some of Dane. The past is what created him, so it is deep. Another really good novel in the Power Chain series. The next one is due out August 7 and it is Dane up at bat. That is going to be huge for me. what I like about Dane is that he is a silent fixer.

This is the Power Chain Series – a four book series of interconnected stand-alone romances.

Book 3 coming August 7th and I can not wait Did I say that a million times before? yeah but it is worth repeating.

Saved By You by K.L. Jessop @ejbookpromos @Jessop30K


Title: Saved by You 
Series: Spring Rose Bay Series
Author: K.L. Jessop
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 23, 2018
Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs
Two broken souls, fighting for freedom…
Victoria.
When I suddenly found myself in a world of darkness and despair, my only escape was to run. It was the only way I knew how to breathe.
Life had been one big sh!t storm and I longed to find the rainbow.
But it never came.
Scared.
Alone.
I was fighting for survival and longed to be saved.
Then it happened…
That little piece of hope finally broke through—creating the release I so desperately needed— and gave me a reason for living.
The night I met a stranger in the dark, he consumed me like no other. He gave me hope, and, even though I still felt the need to run, I can’t—not from him.
However, like everything in my life, it all seems too good to be true, because fate isn’t on my side. It never has been.
Lucas.
I was a man of my word until I made a promise I failed to keep. My world turned grey, my nights even darker, as I suffered in the silence of my own nightmares.
Damaged.
Broken.
I longed for an escape, a distraction from my troubled mind.
Then it happened…
Little did I know that distraction would come with long, raven-black hair and a smile that took my breath away.
She changed me; she changed everything.
From the very second I held her, I knew her heart was scarred too, and I wanted to do everything within my power to fix her.
A life should be lived without fear and all she ever did was try to escape it. I needed to prevent that. I needed to protect her with every beat of my heart and every breath that I had.
But now I’m not sure if it will be enough.
Kate has lived in South West England her entire life just on the edge of Dartmoor where the moorland goes on for days. It’s beautiful, breath-taking and occasionally rather wet. 


She is a dyslexic author and finds things challenging which often leads to banging her head against the wall or searching for vodka. 

Kate loves anything creative, her college years were spent in the art room, she has numerous qualifications in advanced nail art and as well as writing her passion is photography.

She probably swears way more than she should. Her mum makes the best cupcakes in history, and she goes weak at the knees for a guy with a five o’clock shadow.

Cry Baby by Ginger Scott @TheGingerScott #Review #NewRelease


 

 

 

I wrote a really good review and I did it through the Goodreads app on my Kindle when I was done reading and it’s gone. It may be time for a new Kindle. I have been reading every book that Ginger comes out with since day 1. This was gritty, not since Blindness was there a book that was so edgy. I think I like the cover of Blindness better. Do you know it? NO ? Check it out.

So here goes one more time. What I loved about the writing was how meaningful it was. Sometimes you read a book and all of a sudden notice all of the descriptions and think WOW that is good. Not just words to fill up a chapter with boring descriptions of the ocean or trees. While reading this too many times I re-read a paragraph and made a kindle hi-light just because it was so deep. I think I have about 30 quotes so far. Very rarely do I say I can re-read a book, but this is one.

The Riley character was awesome. She was Ginger! The kind of girl that thinks i

 

t and just reacts and does it. I can see her in her Chuck Taylors bouncing a ball right now in my mind. Anyways, Riley knew in her heart that she loved basketball and she was good! I have been asking Ginger for about 4 years to cut the baseball and give me basketball, so she cut the baseball and we got a few football books. I relate better to basketball and that is why this is off the charts. I tried to convince myself that she wrote it for me. I believe!

The Tristan character was great! But…who was better? Dub was. He was so evil. He was the leader of the 5 7 and he owned every single member. He had disciples who carried out good jobs, bad deeds and saved his ass. The author puts the back story of Dub a little at time. Tristan knew he was sort of born into the gang. The memories of how a 9 year old Tristan goes about life are very real and very accurate. He learned from the others what had to be done. Sad

Another pop up kid was Jaden. He got to me big time! He was idolizing the 5 7 from a young age. See what happens when parents work? They are unaware of the dangers kids face. Jaden had good parents with good jibs and he looked up to gang members. Why? they were there when Mom and Dad were not.

Lastly how Ms Forte, the teacher got through to Tristan seemingly easy. She was an amazing woman. Then Ms Beaumont who took an interest in Tristan, giving him attention when he wasn’t used to getting any. The thing that got through was the fact that she saw a future in him, one that he couldn’t see. Makes you think really hard about how uninspiring most counselors are in high school. This duo got to know the kids when they didn’t even know it.

Totally worthwhile book. I hope I brought out what I personally thought was important. Please read it!

He couldn’t ask her to leave because she’d only dig her heels in deeper. He couldn’t ask because he didn’t want her to go. She was blurring his lines. She was testing his loyalty.

 

We stare at one another through a full breath while she takes in my partial promises, and I’m compelled to make my point again—the one I have been trying to make since I first met her.

“You don’t belong here, Riley. You just don’t.”

 

Our eyes hold on for a long breath or two, and I try to say something with mine. I try to convey exactly how important this is to me, and I think he gets it. He’s quiet for the rest of the day.

 

Only something here is just different. That wall I’m used to climbing over feels bigger somehow. And every time I think I have my hands on the top, Tristan lays a new row of bricks for me to climb..

 

This is my road. This is my travel mate. Everything leads to the same disappointing place. I’m capable of so much more

 

I feel it beating now in the pit of my stomach. It’s this victim, kicking and screaming while I drown it one day at a time, making it quieter and quieter until I almost don’t hear it at all. Someone gave it a voice, though. It’s loud today—loud now. I pull open Ms. Forte’s door

 

Somewhere there was a fork and I went in a different direction from the one I always choose. Why am I desperate to go back and choose differently?
