#Boost #Reviews SURPRISE, BABY! by Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam @GiveMeBooksPR @lexlaughs @LeslieMcAdam

Title: Surprise, Baby!
Standalone Companion Novel to All About the D
Authors: Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Adult Contemporary
Release Date: March 12, 2019


There’s a fine line between lust and hate.

I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem.

His mouth is.

And the stupid things that come out of it.

But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me… 

Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on.

And it doesn’t involve talking.

I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend can’t change us that much, can it?

Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.

Except he left me a little keepsake.

And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most notorious player.


I’ve been so looking forward to Drew’s book! I absolutely loved it! 
In Surprise, Baby, we see a whole different side to Drew. He seems to have transformed from the chauvinistic slob that he was in All About The D. He’s fit, polite —though still dirty-minded— and looking more put together. Quite the change, but what had he been up to? 
Kendall is a business owner. No time for relationships or vacations. No time to let herself relax. She rarely has time to see her best friend Evie. So when the opportunity arises to spend several days away with her friend and husband she jumps on it. Only she has to ride there with Drew. The object of her loathing. 
I loved this book and all the things it offers us! It is emotional and has so much character growth... I love “watching” characters grow! I love the bickering and banter, the push and pull... The chemistry is so hot, too! 
I highly recommend this book. It can be read as a stand-alone or after All About The D, which is hilarious and also a must-read!

This book ticked all my boxes I loved Drew much more than I ever expected to. What a transformation from the guy we met in All About The D. 

Drew is quite the changed man don't worry he's still got the swagger and filthy mouth. Kendall has always looked at him as a bit of a slob but now she's seeing him in a whole new light. 

I found this alot of fun to read Drew's thoughts cracked me up. Loved the whole fun vibe of this story.

* * *

Surprise, Baby! is a fun enemies-to-lovers story. Their best friends had a whirlwind romance but she can't stand him. He loves to fire her up and can't ever seem to keep his foot out of his mouth. A sassy, fiery redhead and the eternal "dude bro" face off and learn they are more than meets the eye. 

Sweet and drama filled Surprise, Baby! will have you shaking your head and smiling.

#NewRelease #Reviews KISS ME, STUPID by Gia Riley #jennw23 @AuthorGiaRiley

Kiss Me, Stupid, an all-new standalone romance by Gia Riley is NOW LIVE!

Thirty-five thousand feet in the air, I impulsively planted my lips on a stranger.

To say it was out of character was the understatement of the century.

But I wasn’t worried.

It’s not like I’d ever see him again.

Or so I thought.

When I least expected it, there he was. And he looked so much better than I remembered.

It was only supposed to be one kiss—a drunken lip-lock to ring in a new year.

But sometimes, history repeats itself.

I've read insta-love stories and insta-lust stories. I think this is my first insta-happy. The book isn't an insta-happy. The feeling it emotes is an insta-happy. I was smiley and at peace when Wirth and Chandler connected. 

Now don't read this and think it's all butterflies and happily ever afters, even Disney doesn't make it that easy! But don't fear, Gia Riley isn't stomping on hearts or kicking puppies in this one. You will have every thing your heart desires...except for that menagerie scenario you were contemplating. (Don't lie. A Hollis, [enter your name], and Worth sandwich sounds appealing. Even Chandler thought it!)

Sandwich dilemmas aside, Kiss Me, Stupid is a fun, flirty happy and of course there's the ever after too.

#NewRelease #Reviews FLEETING by Carrie Aarons @InkSlingerPR @AuthorCarrieA

Fleeting by Carrie Aarons

Available Now | Nash Brothers, #1

Read it for FREE in Kindle Unlimited

Book Blurb:

Presley McDaniel lives her life from moment to moment.

Making permanent decisions means obligation, and that would force her to stop being the family disappointment. Waitress, fitness instructor, dog walker … you name the hourly job and she’s probably held the position.

But when her grandmother can no longer run her book shop in Fawn Hill, a town so small it barely has its own zip code, Presley steps up to help.

The move from bustling city to green pastures may be exactly what she needs to sort out her life. But she didn’t ask for that happy ending to include a gorgeous veterinarian with an all-American smile and a penchant for snuggling puppies. The good doctor is reliable, responsible, and just the kind of man Presley has always avoided.

Love and commitment are predictable.

So why, the moment she lays eyes on him, are they all she wants?

Keaton Nash has never questioned his steady path.

His brothers may tease him about settling into his father’s passed-down role of small-town veterinarian, but Keaton has never minded his rural roots. And after tragedy struck two years ago, he has a duty as the eldest Nash man to look after his family.

What he doesn’t need is the sexy, flighty stranger who shows up in town and gets his broken heart beating again. Presley McDaniel is a distraction, a red-headed temptation that is the definition of a bad idea.

He’s barely recovered from the love who left him to chase bigger dreams, and this woman is bound to do the same.

Except for the first time ever, he wants to abandon stability.

She makes him want to be reckless.

Fleeting is a sweet small town romance. It has a small town feel and a hopeful nature. I think my favorite character is Chance. I'm sorry but his randy nature still makes me giggle. 

Fleeting is cute. It's fun. It has me intrigued for the rest of the Nash clan.

#CoverReveal #ComingSoon A LESSON IN THORNS by Sierra Simone @CandiKanePR @TheSierraSimone

A Lesson In Thorns (Thornchapel #1) by Sierra Simone

Cover Reveal: March 13th
Release Date: March 21st
Cover Designer: Hang Le
Image: Trevillion Images


Once upon a time, six children stumbled upon a wild place hidden deep in the moors, shrouded by secrets and fog. There we played a game among the roses and the thorns that would change us forever, that would follow us the rest of our lives. A game that ended with a hard kiss in the rain and tattered flower petals fluttering from above…

And twelve years later, we’re back.

The heir. The dreamer. The priest. The genius. The socialite. The saint.

I’m not going to dream of a forgotten place covered in thorns every night. I won’t be enchanted by Thornchapel and its glossy, glamorous people. I’m not going to fall in love or have my heart torn in two.

I’m not telling the truth.

Because as this place slowly tightens its coil of secrets and thorns around us, as we uncover the knotted mysteries that grow here, the six of us begin to unravel into filthy, holy pleasure and pain. Fulfilling the promise we once made as children in those whispering ruins, and awakening a fate that will either anoint us or leave us in ashes…

#Boost #Reviews THE DISSOLUTION OF UNREQUITED by Len Webster @LWoodsPR @lennwebster

THE END IS HERE! The Dissolution of Unrequited by Len Webster is NOW LIVE!!!

Grab your copy on your favorite platform: 

Amazon US →

Amazon UK →

Amazon CA →

Amazon AU →


Atomic number: 102 
Name of chemical element: Nobelium 
Symbol: No

Every concept has a state of dissolution ... even between best friends.

The theory: To find herself and pursue her dreams of completing her Ph.D. 
The solution: Walk away from the love that hurt her the most, and put herself first. 
The results: A life changing choice between her heart and her future. 
The dissolution: ... of unrequited as AJ and Evan know it.

I don't think I've fallen in love with two young characters as much as I did with AJ and Evan there was something about those two that touched my heart. 

So we're on book four at the end of what has been an epic journey. There were times I despaired, times I shouted at my kindle. At times I felt the author was a sadist what she put her readers through at times was nothing short of criminal. Over the four books, we've had laughter and tears, love and heartbreak and angst by the bucket load. 

I'm not sure there could have been a more perfect ending to this series. Every word was just what I wanted. It doesn't matter who you were rooting for (personally mine was always AJ) you will be satisfied with this book. My heart is full and happy but I'm sad it's over, however, I know these will be books I will read again often.

Dear Len Webster,

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. I don't know if I should hug you or shake you. You have given me this magnificent gift...The Science of Unrequited series is truly that- a gift. A love so pure and innocent. A lifetime of friendship. A lifetime of sadness and unrequited. But most importantly, you gave me hope. Hope that things can change. Hope that love will triumph. Not everyone gets their happily ever after and sometimes the journey is more important than the end result. I love that you gave us all of that in this series. But I also love that you gave us the AJ and Evan experience.

With kindest regards and our friendship restored!

Thank you,

For everyone else (that has made through to this part of my review), you need AJ and Evan in your life. You need EPIC. You need the love, the pain, and the journey. If you haven't already started this amazing series, start now. Don't even bother to finish reading this. You won't forget or regret it. The Theory of Unrequited will pull you in and keep you invested. You will desperately cling to dreams, wishes, and hope straight through to this beautiful conclusion The Dissolution of Unrequited. 

Now if you are like me, the author has plagued you with doubts. Your heartstrings are taut like a bundle of ropes being pulled by a runaway horse. You were on edge the whole series and don't know what to do. I was actually scared to read this (as I have been every book since the first). I wasn't sure I would get my HEA. [Don't forget this is all about me!] Once I stopped stalling, I devoured it in a day. I messaged the author hate mail, sloppy lovey messages, and paranoid rants. You too will experience all these highs and lows. Just know, every single one is worth it. And remember eight...

With lots of love, I hope you enjoy The Dissolution of Unrequited.

#NewRelease #Reviews FINE LINE by A.D. Justice @GiveMeBooksPR @ADJustice1

Title: Fine Line
Series: Crossing Lines #1
Author: A.D. Justice
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 10, 2019


Lines are for crossing. Rules are for breaking.

I only wanted a cup of coffee. Alone.

It was a simple request, right? Just stroll into the coffee shop on the corner, grab my usual cup of liquid nitrogen, and walk back out.

All while minding my own business.

But I had to walk in at that exact moment. Not ten minutes earlier. Not ten minutes later. Precisely when Savannah Fields needed someone to help her. When no one except me had the courage to stand up for her.

After the incident, she looked at me like I was her hero.
But I’m no hero.
I don’t even know who or what I am anymore.
Who is Nick Tucker? A DEA agent? A criminal? Both? Neither?
The lines I crossed while undercover blurred my staunch sense of morality.

Then the auburn-haired beauty showed up at my apartment, begging for my help. I couldn’t turn her away.

The more I lost myself in her, the more I found myself again.
Or so I thought.
Even a broken clock gets to be right twice a day.
There's a fine line between right and wrong, love and hate, heaven and hell.

CROSSING LINES is a spinoff series of the USA Today bestselling romantic suspense series, Steele Security. The books in this new series are stand-alone novels with interconnected characters, so there's no need to wait until the series is complete to start book one!

Attention all newbies...Attention all newbies!

*coughs, clears throat*

Now that I have your attention, I want to say something others will probably boo at me for. Do not, I repeat do not go in blind. If you are like me and love interconnecting stories or characters that pop up from elsewhere, you must read The Steele Security books first. The love, camaraderie, and background is worth any grumbling you might do when you see there are 5 books in the series. Because I guarantee you will fall in love with the entire gang, I am begging you to read them first. I want you to see where Silas and the gang hail from. It will make you fall so much harder. 

*steps off soapbox*

Okay, if you have ignored my above rant, I guess I will just have to live with that. *shakes head in dismay* You will not be lost in this story. I just wanted to show you some extra lovin'. *sigh* Yes, I will get over it. Give me a minute!

*clears throat again*

Fine Line starts at a crossroads. A life changing crossroad. Each direction represents a different kind of life. As time passes, regrets, shame, and self loathing take over. But a chance encounter changes everything, whether or not they are prepared for it. 

Nick and Savannah are dancing along a line. Each has a decision to make...again. It's a Fine Line and the results are devastating. 

Enjoy the ride because it's about to get bumpy!

reviewed by Sweet Spot Sisterhood

One moment can change the course of your life and for Nick and Savannah it's a chance meeting in a coffee shop when he comes to her rescue. 

Nick is a DEA agent who is 'recovering' from a long undercover operation with a notorious MC. Savannah is putting her life back together after finally escaping an abusive relationship. Whilst they should probably run from each other the connection they have is undeniable.

The author did a good job of marrying the love story between the main characters and the elements of danger throughout the story. I wished I'd read The Steele Security books because the guys we meet from those books are very interesting.
