Maverick-print-for-web.jpg

Maverick, an all-new contemporary STANDALONE by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is LIVE!!!

Maverick is a complete standalone novel and the second book about the rough and rugged Nelson brothers. Get ready for one wild alpha mountain man - Canada's never felt so hot!
Forget playing it safe.
John “Maverick” Nelson likes to live his life on the edge – literally. A crucial member of the search and rescue team in the mountainous British Columbian town of North Ridge, Maverick’s brash and bold attitude means he’s the first one to ascend into danger, no matter the risk.
When it comes to women, though, Maverick errs on the side of caution. For all his cocky charm, rugged good looks and sexual swagger, he remains as unreachable as the surrounding peaks. Hot, wild sex? He’ll tell you there’s no better way to spend a cold, wintry night. Relationships? He’d rather freeze.
That is until he lays his eyes on American Riley Clarke. Trading in the crippling expenses of Aspen for BC, Riley is North Ridge’s newest member of their search and rescue team and the only woman on the job, which means spending a lot of time with Mav in adrenaline-pumping situations.
With the chemistry between them hot enough to melt snow, keeping their hands off each other is detriment to the success of their team. Besides, Maverick’s her boss and she didn’t work her ass off in Colorado just to throw it all away for some mind-blowing sex.
But when the worst winter in years sweeps in, Riley and Maverick will have to battle the elements along with their attraction for each other. And if either of them slip up, both of them will be in for a deep freeze.


My Review
Damn, Karina can write her ass off! When I say I devoured this book, I mean it. I finished this book in a couple of hours, if even that. I could not put Maverick down! 

Maverick is many things, boss over Search and Rescue in his home town, sexy, and a ladies man. He's also about to get knocked on his ass by his new employee,Riley. 

Riley loves the thrill of search and rescue and started by following her best friend Levi into it all and into Aspen. But after something happens Riley flees to Canada to start fresh. She just doesn't expect John Maverick Nelson. 

I been waiting for Mav's story since we were first introduced to him in Wild Card, though this is a standalone I highly recommend reading about Shane and Rachel, anyways Mav was worth the wait as I imagine all the Nelson brothers are. 

Karina has this uncanny ability to create the most amazing and believable chemistry between her characters and these two were electric. Everything about them felt organic and they set my Kindle on fire. I honestly didn't want this one to end! 
5 stars!!!!

Review Blitz: Ruthless King by Meghan March

      Get ready for the darker and dirtier side of New Orleans with a brand new alpha romance from USA Today bestselling author Meghan March. 
New Orleans belongs to me. You don’t know my name, but I control everything you see—and all the things you don’t. My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met. I didn’t need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt. To have her in my debt. She doesn’t know she caught my attention. She should’ve been more careful. I’m going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her. It’s time to collect what I’m owed. Keira Kilgore, you’re now the property of Lachlan Mount. *Ruthless King is book one of the Mount Trilogy*   ADD TO GOODREADS  
My Review
This book was a little hard for me to get into, and once I started to it ended. I really like Keira, but I don't know if I like Mount yet. Really that is my issue. He is too abrasive and I am sure he will grow on me the more I know about him, but right now he is kinda a jerk. 
Keira is running her family owned distillery and things are not looking good. Unbeknownst to her, she is somehow owned by Lachlan Mount and he has came to collect. Her life is not her own anymore and Mount is everywhere. Keira wants to hate him, but her body craves him. I am curious to see what else is going to happen. Keira is a force to be reckoned with in her own way and I think Mount has finally met his match. I hope the following books show a softer side to him. 

3.5 stars! ***ARC given in exchange for my honest opinion.Thank you!***

Cover Reveal: The Other Brother by Meghan Quinn

Check out this amazing cover for THE OTHER BROTHER by Meghan Quinn!


THE OTHER BROTHER
NA Romantic Comedy
Model: David Harris


I got the call. The dreaded call every child fears. My dad wasn’t well, and the man who had always been my everything needed me.

There was only one thing to do; pack up and head back to my hometown. I had finally made my dream life in the city with the great job and loving boyfriend. But was there really a choice not to go?

I found a wonderful job, a quaint house to rent, my boyfriend was working on joining me in Binghamton, and my favorite pizza place was only miles away. Life was good.

Until I met my neighbor.

It's been three years since I'd seen Aaron Walters, and my God is he all kinds of sexy gorgeous. Figures. He was supposed to be my forever, the man I grew old with, but he had different plans. How can a man who ripped my heart apart still trip me up? How can he make me still want him now more than ever?

I’m tempted, I’m drawn toward him, I’m completely and utterly unaware that I’m dating his biological brother.

Now two men own my heart. The question is, which brother will I choose?




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!

On the streets of New Orleans, sins are committed every night.

My name is Jett Colby and I save tarnished souls.

In the downtown, under the glittery lights of Bourbon Street, I found her in cheap lingerie, flaunting her body for callous men and money.

From the lace of her cheap lingerie, to her garter belt, I knew she had to be saved.
She had to be mine.

Broke and destitute with no way of out, she had no choice but to come to me and into my club.

She had no other choice but to become a Jett Girl.

But see, that’s the thing about this city; you might think that under the dazzling lights and illusion of salvation, she’s the one that needed saving.

When the glitter fades and the dirt is washed away, the one worth saving just might be me.

My Review of Book 1
I had previously read this book a few years ago, and while I enjoyed it the same things still bothered me. I will say that I have bumped my rating up though, Just because it isn’t fair for me to knock it half a star just because I am #TeamKace  
Now I have bumped this up to a 4 star read!

I have mixed emotions about this book. I know it's about becoming a Jett girl but really I wish it was about becoming a Kace girl. I just have to get that out there.

Goldie is working at a sleazy strip club trying to make ends meet when she serves (she's a waitress) two men in a secluded booth. She is instantly aware of them just by the sound of their voices. She never sees their faces. But with her tip is a card with her name and a phone number with the logo of the Jett girls.
I really liked how hesitant she was at first, but I have to say it would be hard not to give in like she did.

The problem for me was that we met Kace first and there was so much interaction and attraction to him that by the time Goldie met Jett, I was already a goner for Kace. I also found it crazy that Jett slept with the other girls. I just really did not like that at all. Obviously it was a given going into this book but it still grated on my nerves. But I think that is just because I wanted some action with Kace!

Overall this book did hold my interest, it was hot as hell, and it had some LOL moments as well! I'm pretty sure I will be reading the next one!

***ARC provided in exchange for my HONEST review! Thank you!***

The walls of my club hold many secrets. Depravity. Sin. Justice.

Come in; debauchery can be yours for the cost of a lap dance and a night of pleasure. 

And I own every last part of it.

But she’s my weakness, and thankfully she followed me through the insolvent streets of New Orleans, giving me her loyalty and her heart. 

My desire for her dominates my every thought, but my broken past could destroy us. 

There are people trying to bring me down. 

Two malicious men stand in the way of what I want: to own it all. 

It’s either Lot 17 or Goldie, my Jett Girl. 

I have to make a choice and for once, it won’t be easy.

*Formerly known as Being a Jett Girl. Add it to your TBR--> http://bit.ly/2xhO31t


Under the neon lights of Bourbon, money is everything. 

Justice, faith, and power. They’re the key to my empire and she holds them all in the palm of her hand. Falling for her was a mistake; she stole my heart and consumed me. I was addicted, and she left me weak and vulnerable to my enemies.

They’re everywhere. 

Now she’s gone, turning to my enemy’s business partner; the man I’ve hated my entire life. She said she’s protecting me. She said it won’t be forever.

But how can I believe her? 

Lies, deceit and deception. They’re the sins driving us apart. 

In a city that never sleeps—in a place where scandal hides behind every dark corner, my Jett girl might never be mine again.

Every choice you make in life comes with a consequence.

I was once on top, I was the professional boxer to be afraid of. I had everything I could possibly hope for. I was happy, satisfied, content . . . until one night.

One off day.

One wrong reaction.

I killed a man. The sound, the blood, the stagnant air, it’s forever imprinted in my mind and now dictates the way I live my life.

Desolate with nothing but my penance to pay, I didn’t expect to have my world flipped upside down when Lyla seductively strutted into my life.

I want her. I need her. I crave her.

But I don’t deserve her.

People like to celebrate the day they were born, I like to celebrate the day my soul died.

This is my story of repentance.

Blog Tour: Without Merit by Colleen Hoover


WITHOUT MERIT
BY COLLEEN HOOVER
Not every mistake deserves a consequence. Sometimes the only thing a mistake deserves is forgiveness.

Visit www.WithoutMeritbook.com for teasers, tour dates and more.

ABOUT WITHOUT MERIT:
The Voss family is anything but normal. They live in a repurposed church, newly baptized Dollar Voss. The once cancer-stricken mother lives in the basement, the father is married to the mother’s former nurse, the little half-brother isn’t allowed to do or eat anything fun, and the eldest siblings are irritatingly perfect. Then, there’s Merit.

Merit Voss collects trophies she hasn’t earned and secrets her family forces her to keep. While browsing the local antiques shop for her next trophy, she finds Sagan. His wit and unapologetic idealism disarm and spark renewed life into her—until she discovers that he’s completely unavailable. Merit retreats deeper into herself, watching her family from the sidelines, when she learns a secret that no trophy in the world can fix.

Fed up with the lies, Merit decides to shatter the happy family illusion that she’s never been a part of before leaving them behind for good. When her escape plan fails, Merit is forced to deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth and losing the one boy she loves.

Poignant and powerful, WITHOUT MERIT explores the layers of lies that tie a family together and the power of love.
MY REVIEW
"Not every mistake deserves a consequence. Sometimes the only thing a mistake deserves is forgiveness." 

Colleen Hoover never fails to blow me away. I swear I say this every time, but this time I mean it. Without Merit is one of my new favorites by her. 

Without Merit took me by complete surprise. This was not what I expected but was just what I needed. I don't know if I would call this a romance, though there is, but it is a love story. Merit's family is full of secrets and boy do they have a lot. Merit is pretty much an outcast in her own family and holds all the secrets, but she's tired of it and wants to throw them in everyone's face. But the hard part is dealing with them and facing things about herself that maybe she didn't even know.

It's really hard to write a review for this one without spoiling it. Typical Colleen book ;) I devoured this book in a matter of hours. It made me smile, laugh, and cry. I didn't expect the crying, but it hit me. 

This is not one you want to miss and I think it would be a good book for teens, too. It is easy to get swept away by Merit. Though you really do experience and see things through her eyes. I know this is a like a "duh" moment but it's different with this book. Just trust me. Pick it up. You won't regret it.
