Release Blitz – Dax by Sawyer Bennett

Dax (Arizona Vengeance, Book #4)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: July 9, 2019

 

Synopsis:
The Arizona Vengeance is killing it on the ice. But one player can’t seem to keep his eye on the puck—all thanks to the woman he just married to save her life.

My name is Dax Monahan and hockey is my passion. And if you want to succeed in this sport you have to bust your ass 24/7. I’ve never had a hard time focusing on my career, but when my past comes knocking, no amount of training can prepare me for what lies on the other side of the door.

Regan Miles was always like a sister to me. When a shared tragedy brings us face to face after several years, I’m shocked to see just how much she’s changed. Gone is the shy, awkward little girl that always used to chase me and her brother around. Instead, I’m faced with a gorgeous woman who makes it damn hard to concentrate on anything but her.

Turns out, she’s in trouble, and the only way out is to get married.

I surprise myself when I tell her to marry me. Order her, actually. And most shocking of all, she doesn’t even hesitate before saying yes.

So it’s settled. We’re getting hitched and she’s moving to Arizona with me. All platonic, of course.

The catch?
I never knew I’d fall so hard for my best friend’s little sister.

Release Blitz – King’s Ransom by BT Urruela and CD Bradley

Title: King’s Ransom
Series: South Side Sinners MC #1
Authors: BT Urruela and CD Bradley 
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: July 2, 2019
Cover Design: FuriousFotog
Dimitri King is a killer … and an addict. Born into one of the most ruthless motorcycle clubs that ever ran the streets of St Louis, the only life he has ever known is destroying him from the inside out. A lifetime of trauma, bad decisions, and heinous violence has left him on the brink of complete disaster, but one mission will change everything.

Annalise Hale, daughter of Senator Ronald Hale, is the prima ballerina of the St. Louis Ballet. The picture-perfect trophy from afar, her life is a delicate facade that hides unspeakable pain.

All she wanted was to escape.
 
She never dreamed of this.
 
Blameless in her father’s crimes, she is caught up like an exquisite pawn when the Sinners take her. Face-to-face with Dimitri King, like two sides of the same broken mirror, they have scars so deep, pain is the only feeling they know.
 
A match made in heaven but forged in hell, will they find their wounds fit together to create something beautiful or will the sins of their pasts be too great to overcome?

King’s Ransom by B.T. Urruela

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As a collaboration this book did work, it flowed seamlessly and I couldn’t tell which parts were written by each author.

Both Annalise and Dimitri are broken and from completely different worlds but by a fluke their paths cross.

Annalise is the daughter of a Senator and is also the prima ballerina with the St. Louis Ballet. She vaguely hints at her troubled past, but I don’t remember getting specific details. But she is at the end of her tolerance and is ready to take steps to change her life forever.

Dimitri is an enforcer of The South Side Sinners MC which was founded by his grandfather and until recently run by his father. Turns out his father wasn’t much of a father and Dimitri is haunted by his dark deeds.

So there wasn’t much romance in this story…..more of a slow burn and amazing connection, but there is still a griping story that I was fully vested in. The end is where it really fell apart for me. While the beginning and middle moved a bit slow the end was so fast and there were twists that were unexpected and almost unbelievable. I would have liked to have more detail about her past discussed with Dimitri. While overall, I did enjoy the story, there was just a bit of something extra missing for me.

I’m just a girl who likes to daydream and sometimes I write them down to share. Growing up, the literary world was my safe haven. A wonderful place of fantasy beyond the bounds of reality. As an adult, I put that behind me to practice medicine. My husband and I owned our own practice, had two children, and lived a somewhat normal life. Fate had other plans. In the span of a year, we sold our practice, bought a 96 acre farm in the hills of West Virginia, and adopted 3 of our patients (ages 1,3, and4). It has been an adventure of ups and downs and learning to laugh at ourselves. Yet, somewhere in the midst of kids, chickens, and toothpaste covered dogs, I began to write again. My late night / early morning escape lets me dream beyond all limits. I hope that you will enjoy the journey of the stories as much as I have writing them.

HOSTED BY:

Release Blitz – Obsessed by Aleatha Romig

 

Everything changed the night our eyes met
across the room. His green gaze upon me prickled my skin with uncustomary
warmth while my peek beneath his cuff—of a riot of color on his wrist—sparked
my insatiable curiosity. Tall and mysterious, Kader was a man whose secrets I
longed to know. 

Little did I realize that the night we met was only the
beginning—the beginning to the end of the existence I knew. 
What will happen as his assignment becomes our obsession?

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a
brand-new dark romance bringing us back to the same dangerous underworld as
SECRETS. You do not need to read the Web of Sin trilogy to get caught in this
new and intriguing saga, Tangled Web. 

OBSESSED is book two of the TANGLED WEB trilogy which began
with TWISTED and will conclude with BOUND.

Obsessed (Tangled Web, #2)Obsessed by Aleatha Romig

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a trilogy and they must be read in order. Obsessed ends in a cliffhanger.

Obsessed picks up where Twisted left off. We first thought Kader is our hero, but we really don’t know much about him. We know that he lost part of his memory, but there is something about Laurel that he connects with, which is completely unlike him. She met him when she and her research team are trying to get financial backing for this amazing drug that can assist with PTSD and other issues and he was there to save her from the threat to end her research….kinda….

Now in Obsessed we are given more of the pieces of the back story of Kader and Laurel. We learn a bit more about why they had such an instant connection, but will it be enough to save them. And with every piece of the puzzle we are given a new part of the mystery is revealed and we end up with more questions about the people out to get her.

I enjoyed the suspense elements about Laurel and Kader and loved knowing more about their pasts. In the first book I wasn’t quite connecting with the characters, but was vested because of the mystery, but this book has hooked me in their story and I am hoping they have a full HEA in Bound. The good news is the trilogy will be complete by August.

The underworld of Chicago is far from forgiving. It’s a
world where knowledge means power, power money, and money everything.

While I paid the ultimate price to have it all, it wasn’t my
decision to give up my life.
That doesn’t mean I ceased to exist, only to live.
Going where the job takes me and living in the shadows, with
deadly accuracy I utilize the skills inherent to me, not knowing from where
they came, not recalling what I’d lost.
And then I saw her.
Laurel Carlson.
I shouldn’t want her, desire her, or need her, yet with each
sighting I know she is exactly what I have to have. Laurel has the ability to
do what I thought was impossible. She sees what others don’t.
My gut tells me that it’s a deadly mistake to change my
plans and open my world to her. My mind says she’ll be repulsed by my twisted
existence.
None of that matters, because my body won’t take no for an
answer.
I’ve made dangerous mistakes before.
This time, will the price be too high?

EMBRACING HER HEART
Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.

Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape.

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…

ANYTHING FOR LOVE
Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family’s Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue-even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can’t live up to the fictional heroes she creates-until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she’s intrigued by a real man.

Beau lost his first love years ago, and he’s never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before diving in to the all-too-public career. But he didn’t count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.

Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They’ve never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible.

Graham is a careful, keen businessman, and Morgyn is impulsive, disorganized, and more interested in the energy flow in her eclectic retail shop than in the accuracy of her records.

Wild, Crazy Hearts by Melissa Foster

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stubbornness equals a bit of drama for Brindle and Trace and their Wild, Crazy Hearts. This book gives us what we love most from a Foster book but also seemed to give just a bit more this time and I loved every minute. Trace and Brindle both made me frustrated many times in this book but you can’t help but to love them, and even more when they are together. I love the world Ms. Foster has built with all her series and that we get to catch up with all they characters we loved from past books. This was even better because the way the community came together for Trace and Brindle. This book as well as many other Foster books left me with a simile and a lighter feeling. I can’t wait for more!

Release Blitz – His Queen of Clubs by Renee Rose

 

 

 

 

Sorry, Printsessa. Freedom isn’t in the cards for you. You’re mine now.”

 

 

I came for revenge.

The Tacone Family wiped out the Chicago mafia.

My bratva. My family.

So I captured their little sister.

Now that I have her, I don’t want to let her go.

I’d rather keep her forever—my captive bride.

They’ll pay a dowry instead of ransom.

At the end of the day, the girl and the fortune will be mine.

Because I’ll never relinquish their queen of clubs.


Note: This steamy stand-alone romance is the sixth in USA Today best-selling author Renee Rose’s Vegas Underground series. No cheating, no cliffhangers.

 

Alessia comes out with her wet hair falling over her shoulders and a towel wrapped around her.

I shake my head and she stops.

“Drop the towel,” I growl. “You lost your clothing privileges.”

Her nostrils flare. She’s over being turned on and now she’s pissed. “Figlio di puttana!”

I don’t speak Italian, but I get the gist. “Watch it, printsessa, or I’ll smack that ass red again.”

Color tinges her cheeks.

My dick turns marble hard.

Damn, how I want to pound between those legs until she screams.

I clear my throat. “The towel.”

She tosses her hair, sending splatters of water around the room. With one flick of her wrist, she removes the towel and throws it in my face. Lucky for both of us, she’s wearing panties beneath it.

That doesn’t stop my cock from throbbing.

“Over here.” I sound far more gruff than I mean to. That’s what blue balls do to me. I force myself to take a breath before I get near her, before I bind her wrists and tie her to the bed.

She smells like apples and honey. Is that what my shampoo smells like? It can’t. I’ve never smelled anything so erotically alluring before in my life.

I wrap the swath of fabric around her wrists first to keep the rope from biting, then bind her hands together. I attach them to the headboard for good measure, but I leave her ankles free. It has nothing to do with me wanting to watch those long legs thrash around on the bed when she tries to move.

Nothing at all.

Amazon.com Amazon.co.uk Barnes and Noble Kobo GPlay Paperback Hardcover

Drs. Zelinger book is clearly informed by literature and both clinical and personal experience. Its simplicity and ease-of-use and understanding allows for broad reach to all parents that face the normal challenges in raising children. The story to help the child understand makes this book unique, as well as the “fixer box” concept. Behavioral difficulties often stem from struggles around feeling in control. This book gives a concrete, more adaptive path for both parents and child to feel in control.

— David Salsberg, PsyD, DABPS Clinical Neuropsychologist; Director, Pediatric Assessment, Learning & Support (PALS), New York, NY.

In Please explain Time Out To Me, Drs. Laurie and Fred Zelinger offer a clear, concise and insightful look at the often misunderstood and misinterpreted concept of time out. Combining colorful illustrations and story line for children and step-by-step guidelines and principles for parents and adults, the book has unique appeal to both. I highly recommend this book, particularly to parents foraging through the tangled, complicated and sometimes scary web called parenthood.

— Iris Ackerman, LCSW, PhD, Clinical Social Worker

As a child psychiatrist, finding parenting books that are straightforward, helpful, and concise is a rare find indeed. Drs. Laurie and Fred Zelinger offer just that in Please Explain Time Out To Me. In its pages, they harness their expert clinical experience and judgment and offer it in a relatable, engaging, and entertaining way. I highly recommend this book to families who are struggling with the difficult journey of growing up and managing problem behaviors along the way.

— Stephen Perret, MD., Child Psychiatrist

Thumbs up for Drs. Zelingers book on explaining time out to kids. As a busy working mom with six children, I have used time out effectively. I would recommend reading this book to help understand the benefits of time out for both parents and children, and the effectiveness of time-out as a learning tool. Drs. Zelinger’s thought out story will be a helpful, useful contribution for kids, parents and teachers.

— Chani Jacobowitz, LCSW; Mother of 6 From the Please Explain To Me… series

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found Please Explain Time Out to Me to be very informative and helpful. It was great that the book approached both children and parents/care-givers. My children enjoyed reading this themselves and my youngest retold the story using the pictures. Time out with 3 very active little boys can be difficult and I have already used methods in this book with them. This book allowed me to step back and actually think about how we approach time out and what is and isn’t working. This book will be reread often in our house.

The Art of Loving Lacy (Sweet with Heat: Weston Bradens Book 4) by Addison Cole


NEW RELEASE…

Discover the magic of the Bradens, and fall in love with Addison Cole’s rich and romantic storytelling. All Addison Cole novels are written to stand alone, or be read as the larger Sweet with Heat series.

In The Art of Loving Lacy…
Lacy Snow wasn’t looking for love when she met strikingly handsome and seductive Dane Braden. But how could she ignore the six-foot-three darkly handsome god who tagged and researched sharks for a living—and made every nerve in her body tangle into an overly sensitive knot? Even her fear of sharks could not suppress their intense attraction.

As founder of the Brave Foundation, Dane Braden travels from port to port, educating and advocating on behalf of the mammals he adores—and spends his nights finding solace in the arms of strangers. The last thing Dane was looking for when he met Lacy Snow was a relationship, and the last thing he expected was to fall in love.

More than a year—and hundreds of flirty texts, steamy phone calls, and sensual video chats—later, they reunite and take passion to a whole new level.

A Love So Sweet (Sweet with Heat: Weston Bradens, Book 1) by [Cole, Addison]A Love So Sweet (Sweet with Heat: Weston Bradens, Book 1)

Treat Braden wasn’t looking for love when Max Armstrong walked into his Nassau resort, but he saw right through the efficient and capable facade she wore like a shield to the sweet, sensual woman beneath. One magnificent evening together sparked an intense connection, and for the first time in his life Treat wanted more than a casual affair. But something caused Max to turn away, and now, after weeks of unanswered phone calls and longing for the one woman he cannot have, Treat is going back to his family’s ranch to try to finally move on.

A chance encounter brings Treat and Max together again, and it turns into a night of intense passion and honesty. When Max reveals her secret, painful past, Treat vows to do everything within his power to win Max’s heart forever—including helping her finally face her demons head-on.

After ditching a troubled relationship—and her veterinary practice in the process—Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing. That is…until her horse is injured and the son of the man her father has been feuding with for more than forty years comes to her rescue. She’s spent forever trying to deny her attraction to headstrong, too-handsome-for-his-own-good cowboy Rex Braden. The last thing she needs is that particular man complicating her life.

Fiercely loyal Rex Braden has never put anyone or anything before his family. Despite the irate family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, unleashing fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love—and causing the rebel in each of them to rear its powerful head.

Loyalties are tested, and relationships are strained as Rex and Jade find out if true love really can conquer all.

Small-town overachiever Riley Banks has finally scored her big break–working in Manhattan as a fashion design assistant for her childhood crush, Josh Braden. She enters her new job hoping to make a name for herself and–just maybe–explore the romance that slipped through her fingers way back when.

Josh Braden has models at his beck and call, a staff that never says never, and an elegant clothing line for the holiday season. When he hires Riley Banks, he expects her to learn the business from the ground up. But the girl next door turns out to be much more than he remembered.

When Josh and Riley’s friendship heats up, every steamy kiss, and every passionate caress stirs a love they cannot deny. But when Riley designs a wedding gown that would cause even the most jaded fashion editors to swoon, Riley’s mentor accuses her of stealing the design.

Facing indisputable proof and the mistrust of her lover, Riley is not sure she can take the heat of life in the fast lane of the fashion industry–and Josh is forced to choose between the woman he loves and the career he adores.

I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
The Art of Loving Lacy (Sweet with Heat: Weston Bradens Book 4)The Art of Loving Lacy by Addison Cole

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love the title of this book, The Art of Loving Lacy. If you have read any other books by Ms. Cole you know her hero’s make their love an art form and Dane is no exception. It took me a while to warm up to Lacy but when I did I loved her so much. One of the best things about a Cole book and/or series is getting to catch up with all of the characters from past books that you love so much, it’s like a reunion. I loved the little bit of push/pull in this book with both Dane and Lacy. They both have to decide if their love is strong enough to overcome their fears, but don’t fear this Ms. Cole always gives us the perfect ending. I can’t wait to see these “friends” again!

Release Blitz – Twisted by Aleatha Romig

 

The underworld of Chicago is far from forgiving. It’s a
world where knowledge means power, power money, and money everything.

While I paid the ultimate price to have it all, it wasn’t my
decision to give up my life.
That doesn’t mean I ceased to exist, only to live.
Going where the job takes me and living in the shadows, with
deadly accuracy I utilize the skills inherent to me, not knowing from where
they came, not recalling what I’d lost.
And then I saw her.
Laurel Carlson.
I shouldn’t want her, desire her, or need her, yet with each
sighting I know she is exactly what I have to have. Laurel has the ability to
do what I thought was impossible. She sees what others don’t.
My gut tells me that it’s a deadly mistake to change my
plans and open my world to her. My mind says she’ll be repulsed by my twisted
existence.
None of that matters, because my body won’t take no for an
answer.
I’ve made dangerous mistakes before.
This time, will the price be too high?
From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a
brand-new dark romance bringing us back to the same dangerous underworld as
SECRETS. You do not need to read the Web of Sin trilogy to get caught in this
new and intriguing saga, Tangled Web.
TWISTED is book one of the TANGLED WEB trilogy which will
continue in OBSESSED and conclude in BOUND.

Blurb:
I needed to get away.
My ex was getting married.
So, I left.

The English countryside was a picture-perfect escape.
The dashing stranger an even better one.
And what started as a chance encounter quickly became more.

He promised to show me how to live, how to feel alive and forget a past best forgotten.
He made me believe things could be different.
That was until I found out who he was . . .

He was Oliver Blackthorn.
The 16th Earl of Lockhart. Thirty-third in line to the throne.
And a liar.
