Blog Tour: Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker





Blurb:
Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania (population three thousand outside of tourist season).

And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed date, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has rescued: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.

Catherine has already had her fifteen minutes of fame and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works. For a time.

But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. There’s an immediate connection, and it’s more electric than the bond of two people who endured a traumatic event. It’s something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle; something she is afraid to trust.

Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine...before the spark fades?




My Review
Until It Fades is a bit different from the stories we have came to expect from K.A. Tucker, however, it still has just a little bit of suspense to draw you in. Like all of her books I was pulled in from the beginning.

Catherine is not our typical female character. When we meet her she is a teenage girl making mistakes that get her name in the papers and pretty much ostracized in her community. Years later she is just trying to take care of her daughter and lay low. Things change when she comes across a car crash and manages to save a man's life. 

Brett is a world famous hockey player and thanks to Catherine alive. 
The connection between these two felt real and I enjoyed every minute of this book! Aside from the car crash, this felt like a relatively light read. Yes, there was some secrets but it really was just a good book and felt realistic.I enjoyed reading this side of K.A. Tucker's work. 
4 STARS!!!!

Blog Tour: My Best Friend's Ex by Meghan Quinn


MY BEST FRIEND'S EX by Meghan Quinn is live! ONE-CLICK now!

AU: http://amzn.to/2saZWAP


When I found an eviction notice taped on my apartment door, I had two options: find a comfortable cardboard box to call home, or move in with Tucker Jameson. 

Seeing that cardboard makes me feel itchy, I chose the latter. Which shouldn't be that big of a deal since Tucker is one of my good friends. And because he's still pining after his ex-girlfriend and I'm trying to finish my nursing degree, there is nothing to worry about in the romance department, making my last semester an easy one to conquer.

Boy, was I wrong. 

Rules are set, dinners are made, conversations are had, and a shirtless, swoony roommate walks around in nothing but a pair of black briefs, ruining me for every other man. 

Before I know it, I turn into a panting, lust-filled woman begging for Tucker to kiss me, touch me, and show me exactly what is hiding under those briefs. 

But with great orgasms, comes great consequences. 

Tucker might be my friend and roommate but he’s also my best friend's ex-boyfriend, making him completely off-limits. At least that's what my brain is telling me, my heart is speaking an entirely different language.





My Review
Can I just start by saying I love reading Meghan Quinn books?! She never disappoints.

Going into this one I didn't know what to expect, was it going to be full of drama, I mean title! Not that drama would have bothered me, we all like to read a little angst. Anyways, what i got was better.

Emma and Tucker were friends growing up and Tucker dated Emma's best friend, Sadie. But when things ended badly with Tucker and Sadie, he stopped hanging around and him an Emma lost touch. But Emma is in her last semester of nursing school when she gets evicted and has nowhere to go. As fate would have it, she runs into Tucker and he offers her a place to live. Not able to turn it down Emma moves in. 

This book was filled with so many funny parts and the friendship between these two was so refreshing to read. It really is how it should be. The chemistry was off the charts! But there is still a few things hanging between them.. Sadie and Tucker's past. How will things turn out when you date your best friend's ex? Read and find out!! Because I don't want to spoil the story! 

5 stars!!!

About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if "It's Raining Men" starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing... enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Review Blitz: Egomaniac by Vi Keeland

  egomaniac-available-now     Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00072]


The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated. Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent. I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind. I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing. And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

My Review
Vi Keeland is quickly becoming one of those authors that I just love. It seems that everything I have read by her I have loved. Egomaniac was no different. 

Emerie Rose and Drew Jagger could not be more different. She is a marriage counselor from Oklahoma who moved to New York after following a man she has been pining for, for years. But before you start thinking this is a love triangle, think again. He may have been her reason for moving, but that's it.... Anyways, Emerie not being from New York, got swindled out of ten grand, what she thought was a great deal on new office space turned out to be anything but.

Drew Jagger is bitter from his past and his job. He is a divorce lawyer. The man who helps dissolve marriage. He's also blunt, beautiful, and crass. When he comes home from vacation and realizes he has an intruder in his office who believes it is her office he offers to help her get things sorted out. What happens next is what really begins the whole things. Drew offers Emerie office space until she can find her own place. Shouldn't be a problem because Drew and Emerie couldn't be any more different. 

The chemistry between these two was off the charts in my opinion. I truly loved their interactions. I feel like so much happened in this book and  in such a short amount of time. But it didn't feel forced. You know what they say, opposites attract, and Drew and Emerie prove that theory. 

"You're an egomaniac." "Maybe. But an attractive one." 

5 stars!!!!!

Review: A Love Letter to Whiskey by Kandi Steiner


                                                                    A Love Letter to Whiskey

Blurb: 
It’s crazy how fast the buzz comes back after you’ve been sober for so long.

Whiskey stood there, on my doorstep, just like he had one year before. Except this time, there was no rain, no anger, no wedding invitation — it was just us.

It was just him — the old friend, the easy smile, the twisted solace wrapped in a glittering bottle.

It was just me — the alcoholic, pretending like I didn’t want to taste him, realizing too quickly that months of being clean didn’t make me crave him any less.

But we can’t start here.

No, to tell this story right, we need to go back.

Back to the beginning.

Back to the very first drop.

This is my love letter to Whiskey. I only hope he reads it.






My Review




THEY SAY TIMING IS EVERYTHING, and I was beginning to learn that timing was everything but kind to Jamie and me.

I stayed up late last night consumed and drunk on this book. I couldn't put it down, I had to finish it. This was one of those books that reminded me just why I read, why I love books so much. This was one of those books that reminds just how complicated and messy love can be, how you can get drunk on it and lose yourself to the addiction. It was raw. It was full of angst and just what I needed.

Words don’t get written from a heart that’s never felt. They come from pain, from love, from unspeakable depths — and they were my only release.

For B and Jamie timing was always off. This is their story and it spans years. Throughout this book I both loved and hated them at times. I wanted to shake them and tell them to get it together. But that is the thing about love. Usually you have to fight for it. You have to want it bad enough to make it happen. I feel like this one of those times where I want to tell you about Jamie and B's story, but I won't. That's because you need to experience it. You need to fall in love and get your heart broken with Jamie and B. You need to experience it with them Yes, this book is angsty, yes, this book includes cheating, but damn if this book isn't worth it. Read it. You won't regret it. It is one that I won't soon forget.

My heart was broken — completely, utterly shattered — and I liked the way that pain felt.

5 STARS!
