#BlogTour #Reviews ALL THIS TIME by Kathy Coopmans @loveaffairwfict @AuthorKCoopmans


Title: All This Time
Series: Sweet Sin
Author: Kathy Coopmans
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Rockstar Romance





Some people claim to have their hearts ripped out of their chests. To feel the world shift under their feet. To feel intoxicated by love.


Miles Wittman, the bassist for the rock band Trained in Black, felt those things until the shift became a hole and dragged him into darkness.

His mind clouded by years of alcohol abuse, the man remembers very little of the last two years of his life.


Until her.

A woman from his past.

Julia Nulty, the band’s manager sister, the sexy, exotic plus-sized model.


Bits and pieces of his memory start to surface after the two of them are caught up in an unexpected photo shoot.

She’s rocked his world. He feels the shift. The intoxication.

But Miles, he has no recollection of the night they spent together. If he finds out the truth of what happened, it could possibly lead him back to the darkness.


**The Sweet Sin series is a series of interconnected standalone rockstar romances.**

All This Time
Finally, we see Miles with his head no longer in a bottle!!! I'm so glad he got help. But as you can see in the beginning of the book, his head is still firmly up his own @ss! Lol. I'm sorry but I can't shake him so I have to say that. Stubborn jerk feels he knows what's best for others!
Sigh.
Julia is "the one that got away" except she was shoved away and treated to front row seats of the train wreck that has been Miles ever since. (Say that 10 times fast!) She may have been willing to put up with it before but the gorgeous plus sized model is down lying down being a doormat. 
Trauma and past hurts linger for both of them. Getting over it won't be easy. Ignoring it proves impossible. But together, they can do anything!

This is Miles and Julia's story and right from the prologue you know this is going to be an emotional read.
Miles is known as the bad boy of the band but now we get to know why and what his demons are. His back story is heart breaking, the author writes it so well you feel his pain and devastation. Julia has her own troubles she has overcome so much to become a successful plus size model. I'm sure I won't be alone in identifying with her because it's so true to life.
I love the way the author wrote both characters how they accepted each other. When Miles looked at her all he saw was this beautiful strong successful woman and Julia saw the man beneath the addiction, she sees a sensitive man who could be the love of her life.
If you've read the previous books you will know that Miles book was never going to be an easy read but it was pitched perfectly.

Adjusting my guitar, I turn around and freeze, every muscle in my body loosening at the stunning woman sitting on the stool next to me. One look at her, and the air in the sound booth evaporates, stealing it right out of my lungs.


“Keep looking at me like that, and I’ll lock the door, shut off the lights, and fuck you up against the window. I’ll have them rattling harder than they’ve ever vibrated before.”


A sharp breath escapes Julia’s mouth. Her eyes go wide. Her lips are painted in a delicious shade of light pink, glossy and so plump my taste buds explode in my mouth. Damn, the woman has my knees knocking together. Straight pin-up version of sex is what she is. Earth-shattering sex. A little rough with a whole lot of meaning.


She looks much better than she did nearly a week ago when I climbed the steps to her house leading to the unknown. I’d like to think I had something to do with it. The truth is, it’s all her and the strength she possesses.


I wrap my arm around her waist, yanking her to the edge of the stool, then lift my hand to settle on that gorgeous face.

“I dare you.”

Her dare sizzles through me like an electric wire.

Blurb

He was the mistake I never forgot. Now, my life depends on him. 

I’m back, bitches! I’ve conquered my addictions, and I’m ready for my next world tour. But when a series of death threats unravels my plans, my manager calls in the big guns at McClintock Security for my protection. There’s just one catch: my bodyguard turns out to be the one night stand I never forgot … no matter how hard I tried.

I can fight it all I want, but I’m drawn to Ash even more than I was at my darkest. But he has demons of his own, and I’m falling in love with a man who can never love me back. I know I should walk away before it’s too late, but I'm hooked. And Ash is the sweetest addiction I’ve ever known.

This was an enjoyable book full of angst with characters I really liked.

Rae was country music's rising star until her personal life fell apart. Her superstar husband betrayed her but his legions of fans turn on her. Rae meets Ash when she's on her downward spiral using drink drugs and sex to ease her pain. When she starts receiving threats she is reunited unexpectedly with one of her one nighters Ash.

I love reading about strong women and eventually that's what you get with Rae. After losing everything she becomes determined to get her life back on track, the moment she starts fighting back I cheered her on. Ash is a complicated man with demons that he can't let go of. They are absolutely perfect for each other, although on paper they shouldn't work they are the missing piece each other need.

The drama and danger is ever present due to Rae's stalker who is determined to get to her. Loved the heat between them as a couple are hot hot hot. Can they deal with the outside pressures and have a lasting future?

What reviewers are saying...

Norinne hits the authentic button hard, more than once... - javamonster

[Rebecca] changes the settings of her novels, changes her characters, but her skills to give life to intense stories are still the same, she captures and she could make you feel the emotions through what her characters are living and feeling. - Cinzia Labo

Rebecca has seriously stepped her game in a big way with this book, proving the immense diversity she possess with her writing skills. Every book she has released has been nothing short of 5- 6 stars, and I don't forsee that changing anytime soon with the talent she repeatedly shows us. - Bookalicious Babes Blog

This was a novel that contained suspense, romance, twists and turns that kept me enthralled from the final page.. -Laurie B.

Blurb:

Vincent: Forgetting about Eve was the plan. Finding her at a party on my college campus was the last thing I expected.

But letting her go again isn’t an option—not this time. Juggling the life I want with the one I was born into may be near impossible, but for her, it's a risk I'm willing to take.

My world has turned into a house of cards, where one wrong move can send it all crashing down…and us with it.

Eve: Finally at a prestigious university—and on the path to living my dreams—I’ve left the darkness of the Blue Houses behind. Still, a whole new host of problems await me.

Vincent is here.

He's king of the school, complete with a society princess by his side. I thought I wanted to know what he was hiding, but unlocking his biggest secret leads me into entirely new territory laced with danger

and lust...one I’m not sure I’ll survive.


*RISING must be read before reading RECKONING.



I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book I didn't want it to end I love them so much. 

Our star-crossed lovers are reunited unexpectedly but things are so complicated. Vincent is juggling his role in the family business with college and seeing Eve again is just a complication he doesn't need.Oh the angst and drama is off the charts so many secrets and manipulation with everyone conspiring against them. 

I was not prepared for that ending that leaves so many possibilities for book three I just hope it's soon. 


* * *


Jessica Ruben is trying to ruin my life. It isn't enough she thinks she can play God with Vincent and Eve-NO! Now she's trying to ruin my life as well.

Am I bitter, um...possibly!?! I knew it was coming...well the end. I knew the end was coming and though I suspected what was going to go down...I still had hope. Lots of hope....

So now I'm sitting here contemplating whether to gorge on Chex Mix or ice cream because that was not how I wanted it to happen. I know there's another book coming. I know but darn it!!!! I want to be happy now. I don't want an emotional cliffhanger to slice me to shreds. 

But we don't always get what we want...

I better get my happy eventually. Or I can just cry more? Jessica Ruben,you don't want me crying more, do you? Save a hopeless reader more heartache, give me more Vincent and Eve! Please? 😉

#NewRelease #Reviews THE BOMBSHELL EFFECT by Karla Sorensen @EJBookPromos @ksorensenbooks


Title: The Bombshell Effect
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Sports Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 14, 2018
Cover Designer: Najla Qamber



Allie Sutton just got a new job. 

Not one she wants, and definitely not one she's prepared for. She hadn't seen her dad in years, so the last thing she expects upon his sudden death is to inherit the thing he loved more than anything (or anyone) ... the professional football team he owned for the last twenty years. 
Luke Pierson does not want a new boss. 
What he wants is to be a good father to his daughter, the best quarterback possible for his teammates. What he doesn't need is a blonde bombshell ruining the team's chances at another championship. Especially when that bombshell turns out to be his new neighbor. The neighbor he was a complete jerk to the first time they met. 
For the sake of the team, they treat each other like complete professionals. In public, at least. Behind closed doors, it's a different story. And the fallout of giving in to that heat is something neither one of them can see coming.





Some books give you a smile.
Some books give you a happy glow.
Some books give you both.

The Bombshell Effect is a "both" book. A smile inducing, happy glow radiating book. With its initial meeting of the main characters and then subsequent meeting, there is no way to avoid the smirks and side eyes. Even if you know nothing more than one and ten...this football story will make you a Washington Wolves fan. If only I could get a jersey...

The Bombshell Effect has everything you need.

Single hot, football dad....check
The gorgeous new neighbor...check
Awkward and unforgettable meeting...double check
Judgey attitudes...check

Then there's:
HOt guys in tight pants
Smack talking
Dirty talking
Crazy hot chemistry
A spunky 6 yr old that melts hearts

It's filled with everything to make you swoon.

I loved this book it was just what I needed it had everything I love in a book, a sassy woman a hot guy and a cute kid.

Allie was such a great character finally a female lead that knows who she is and isn't afraid to show it. She's beautiful strong determined and not to be underestimated. Luke is a single dad and my ovaries went boom I love his relationship with his daughter it's adorable there is nothing better than a man loving his kid. 

There are some brilliant scenes in this book that made me cheer and no it wasn't just the sex scenes. The author shows that you can be sexy and the boss, she tackles the sexism issue perfectly. Allie has been thrown head first into a male dominated industry but she confounds everyone with how well she does.

The book was poignant sexy and lots of fun and yet again I've found a new author to binge on.

"This book is EVERYTHING I love as a reader. It's hot, it's hilarious, it's witty and smart. YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE." - Amazon bestselling author Kandi Steiner 
"This book is like my own personal catnip. It has sports, it has tension, and the sexy bits are amazing. The perfect blend of hot and heartwarming." - Amazon bestselling author Amy Daws 
"She took one of my favorite tropes and totally dominated it, she killed it. Sorensen is a football junkie who took her passion for a sport and inserted it into a story. The Bombshell Effect is her gaming winning touchdown." - SBR Reviews


Just before they entered the room, something snapped through my ears at the sound of her voice, but it was nothing I could place, nothing I could pin down with certainty. We all stood to greet her, and as soon as I got the first glimpse of her dress, everything around me slowed to a sluggish, weighted crawl.
It was almost as if my brain couldn’t process what I was seeing, so the vision of her was reduced to blocks of color.
Tan shoes.
Tan legs.
Red dress.
Blond hair.
Red lips.
White teeth.
Blue-green eyes.
When it all snapped together, I lost my breath in a pained whoosh. This could not be happening.
As she smiled brightly at Dayvon, giving him her full attention, I realized she hadn’t seen me yet. My next-door neighbor, the one who had called me an arrogant asshole less than twenty-four hours earlier, was the new owner of the Washington Wolves. And she hadn’t seen me yet. 
Suddenly, I understood the rampant tug of nerves and the unshakable feeling that something was about to go very, very wrong. I swiped my hand over my mouth and let out a slow breath, straightening my shoulders and holding my head up high. I could do this. I’d stared down three hundred-pound linebackers who wanted to rip the helmet off my head as they tackled my ass to the ground.
I could do this. 
She turned in my direction, and I saw the moment it registered. The hitch in her step, the narrowing of her eyes, the slight purse in her scarlet red lips.
You,” she whispered.
Everything stopped. All eyes turned in my direction. The temperature in the room with that one hushed word from her went from cordial to downright glacial.
“Oh, shit,” I muttered under my breath. She crossed her arms tightly over her chest. The chest I’d ogled while she shoved cupcakes at me.
There was absolutely no part of this that could end well.






Well, let’s see ... I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone's face, then I've done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I'll love you forever.
