#ReleaseBoost Reviews THE SOLUTION OF UNREQUITED by Len Webster @LWoodsPR @lennwebster


Young love. Angst. Heartbreak. Healing. The Solution to Unrequited by Len Webster is LIVE!

NOW AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE: 
Barnes & Noble → http://bit.ly/2lDm590 


BLURB:

Atomic number: 33 
Name of chemical element: Arsenic 
Symbol: As

Every solution has a poisonous flaw … even between best friends.

The agreement: Fall break together. 
The struggle: A road trip from North Carolina to Massachusetts. 
The reason: To find a way back into each other’s lives. 
The issue: AJ’s not ready to let Evan reclaim the parts of her he made his. 
The hindrance: Connecticut.






I am so invested in both the story and characters of Evan and AJ so much so that at times I found myself having to remind myself to breathe.

To be honest both of them frustrated me so much, I was screaming at them on my head to just talk to each other but then I remembered their ages. Of the two I found myself questioning Evan's feelings for AJ the most. Does he really love her ? Does he even know what love is? I hated how as we saw in book one he took her so much for granted, how selfish he was. There are lightbulb moments when his past actions smack him in the face but can be be redeemed. Watching AJ flounder and flourish on her own is quite empowering and was a part of the story that is a great example for young women everywhere.

Another fantastic book in what is turning out to be one of my favourite coming of age series

Oh, my poor defenseless heart!

Have you ever craved the answers? Like you needed them so much you begged the author for the next book? So much need, longing, and love for two characters that you twitched to have the answers?

But let me ask you, when you were desperate and needy for those answers did you fear the results? Because I found once The Solution to Unrequited hit my kindle I actually backed away in fear! Legit, heart clenching fear. I was terrified of The Solution to Unrequited. And even having read it, I'm still afraid. (Wan smile) I am afraid that this story is going to continue to break me.

Fear shouldn't hold you back though. And in the end, I let it back me into a corner. I had no other choice and I'm glad I finally found the courage to continue AJ and Evan's story.

The Solution to Unrequited will answer the questions tearing you apart after The Theory of Unrequited. #WhatHappenedAtPromEvan? Will he find her? Will they move on? What about Connecticut? 

But don't break out the champagne just yet! The Solution isn't the end of this story. Len Webster has plans to torture us even more. So angst lovers, love lovers,and needy people who like to cry- buckle in its going to be a bumpy ride!

#NewRelease #Taboo #Reviews OLD ENOUGH by Charmaine Pauls @ReadLoveLust @CharmainePauls


Title: Old Enough(Book 1, The Age Between Us)
Author: Charmaine Pauls
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: July 17, 2018




Synopsis

I’m old enough to drive a car, buy alcohol, and enter a club. I’m old enough to take responsibility for my actions. I’m old enough for her. No matter what her middle-aged friends or society says. No matter she’s the age of my mother. No matter why or how I met her. I’ll take those secrets to my grave. And her with them. If those secrets don’t ruin us first. 

(Old Enough is Book 1 of The Age Between Us duology. Book 2 will be available on 28 August 2018.) 

What reviewers and readers say: “Fabulous.” “A moving and addictive read.” “There’s a beauty and strength to the writing.” “Even when I finally managed to put the book down I couldn’t get the characters to let me sleep.” Can't tell the last time I picked up a book and was so caught up with it.”  



This was a book that I went into with certain expectations based on previous books I've read in this genre but it surpassed all of them.

Really enjoyed the dynamics of the relationship between Jane and Brian, there was no power struggle which I liked. Both characters have secrets that I think may impact on them in book two that's my guess anyway. 

I will say that Jane frustrated me so much I wanted her to fight back against them all instead of just rolling with the punches they through at her. I'm hoping that we see her fight back in the next one.

Looking forward to see where the author takes the characters in the next book.


* * *


Old Enough is a taboo situation. The older woman being seduced by the younger man. It is naughty to think about but you have no idea!!!

He may be younger but he is very experienced. His control is admirable but it's his delectable fantasies that will make you wish you had a Brian. Naughty or nice, he is everything you need, want, and lust after. 

It's so hard not to be jealous of Jane. Until you meet the other half of the drama in this book, you will want to shake the living daylights out of 2/3 the characters in this book. I guarantee it. And just as you are ready to battle your doubts....BAM! 

It's over. Now we wait!!!!

Excerpt
Tapping his fingers together, he doesn’t break our stare. He continues to delve deep into my eyes for four more heartbeats, and then he says, “I’m leaving you.” The words come out of nowhere and everywhere. They’re wrong, because he’d never do that to me. He promised. Our start wasn’t easy, but I’ve tried my damnedest to be the good wife for him, the wife he wanted. We have Abby. He won’t do this to his daughter. “I wanted to tell you before,” he says, “but the right opportunity was never there.” Lowering my voice, I motion at the full restaurant. “This is?” A shutter drops in his regard, and his demeanor turns distant, inaccessible. “I thought it best to move as soon as possible. I don’t want a drawn-out drama.” I can’t process what’s happening. There were no warning signs, except for his recent withdrawal, but he always pulls into himself when work gets stressful. “I’ll be out by tomorrow,” he continues. “Why?” My question has nothing to do with him moving out tomorrow. He doesn’t hesitate in his answer. “Debbie.” I only know one Debbie. “From your office?” “She resigned.” He adds, “Obviously.” As if that’s a consolation. “How did this happen?” “We fell in love.” Tears prick at the back of my eyes, but I blink them away, not wanting witnesses for my pain and humiliation. “How long?” He gets that closed-off look again. “It’s not important.” “The hell it is.” “Jane.” His tone is chastising. “Your language, please.” “Can we talk about this at home?” “There’s no point. My mind’s made up.” “Yes, there is a point. There are things to be said, explained. If you’re so certain of your decision as you say you are–”

#ExcerptReveal #ComingSoon UNTIL WE ARE GONE by Gia Riley @jennw23 @AuthorGiaRiley

Until We Are Gone, an all-new Standalone Emotional Romance by Gia Riley is coming July 30th!!



Synopsis


I wanted a family with Cash.
We had dreams –building a house, kids, a dog, and, yes, even the white picket fence.
Or so I’m told.
I don’t remember anything about my husband. Not the wedding or the vows we shared.
The past ten years were erased and with time, they’re supposed to come back.
But this isn’t your typical case of amnesia
What if I’m not supposed to remember?
What if I was meant to forget?
Maybe I don’t want my old life back.
Because if the accident hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t have uncovered the truth.
Losing my memory wasn’t tragic.
Losing my memory was fate.

Excerpt

  The man grabs my hand and laces his fingers with mine, careful not to jostle the IV. Nothing about his hand is familiar, and I’m left wondering if it’s okay to be touching at all. “Who are you?” I ask him, wondering why he still hasn’t told me his name. If he’s someone who saved me, then I want to know. I need to know. “Are you the pilot?” He sucks in a breath, and the tears flow harder down his cheeks. There’s a long, uncomfortable pause, and he barely blinks. A few seconds later, he clears his throat and says, “Cash. I’m Cash. Your husband.” I search his face for anything familiar. A dimple. A wrinkle. Maybe a freckle. But nothing about him triggers a single memory. I should feel more than this. I should have love for the man I married. I’m not sure how long ago, but we exchanged vows. Vows I don’t remember. And I’m sure I wore a white dress, probably my dream dress, and I don’t even know if it was made of lace or satin. My first Holy Communion dress was an expensive chiffon, and I hated that itchy material, so I’m sure it couldn’t have been chiffon. Cash brushes his finger down the side of my face, chasing away a tear. I didn’t realize I was crying. “I think I want to be alone,” I whisper. He pauses and then lets go of me. I wait for him to say something, but he just tucks closed fists into his pockets and stares at the floor.

Will she be worth the risk or will he fall flat on his face? 

***The characters in this book are of legal age.***






Another fantastic naughty short taboo read from K Webster.

I'm a huge fan of not only this author but the taboo genre. If you've not read a K Webster book this is a perfect book to start with.

Coach Long is all kinds of messed up he meets new student River and the fun begins. It's a hot sexy drama filled fun read, Coach is one filthy mouthed man but he might just have have met his match in River.


* * *


Coach, Coach, Coach!

(Shakes head in mock disapproval)

What have you been up to? You are a naughty, naughty man!

What? It's not your fault you say, K Webster made you do it? Oh Coach, I would believe it if you weren't as hard as a rock and twitching at the thought. Hold still, I need a photo of that for my phone (coughs) I mean evidence. Proof that you are a dirty, dirty man with a filthy mouth and a co....couple of issues. (Coughs) What did you think I was going to say?

Whether you love them or not, K Webster's taboo treats are hot as Hell and leave you needing a drink. Water, soda, or alcohol...you need something to quench the thirst!

Coach Long is no exception. It's hot, naughty, and 100% sweetness...in an alpha caveman way!

And did you catch the next treat...I did and I know it's going to be perfect!

#NewRelease #Reviews BUCKLED (Trails of Sin #2) by Pam Godwin @pamgodwinbooks


It's LIVE!

BUCKLED, Book #2 in the TRAILS OF SIN Series

Genre: Dark Cowboy Romance 
Series: HEAs with no cliffhangers. Each book is a different couple. Must be read in order.



I protect what’s mine. 
The ranch, my family, our buried secrets.

Nothing will stop me from reassembling the life that went terribly wrong. 
Not the law. 
Not our enemies. 
Not even Maybe Quinn.

The gorgeous, quarrelsome journalist shouldn’t have meddled. 
I shouldn’t have let her stay. 
But she’s hiding something in those deceptive blue eyes. 
Something deeper than her thirst for a news story.

I make a deal with her to buy time. 
To unravel her lies. 
To play with her. 
To satisfy my darker appetites. 
When she buckles beneath my belt, I’ll send her away. 
Unless I buckle first.



Pam Godwin strikes again...with a crop! Lol. This series, Trails of Sin, is a whole new kind of ache. The physical longing that it creates is something the author should be proud of. The intense camaraderie that the reader feels for the characters is on a familial level. In short, you need this series in your life! 

Buckled is Jarret's story. Well, in truth, it's a continuation of everyone's story with an emphasis on Jarret. I strongly and adamantly beg you, if you haven't read Knotted, do so NOW! 

Love and friendship is the core of these characters. They are bound to each other in life. But an incident rocks them all yo their very foundation's causing a rift you never wanted to happen. Knotted is the first step in repairing that rift. Buckled is a chance to be free to experience all of the electric feels and chaotic needs. It will also ramp up your need for Booted. 

I'm oddly nervous for the next installment. I'm so excited but also wary of the changes it will bring about. I want Lorne home and I can't wait to read his chance at a new life.

BLURB

Hudson Pierce-

You act so high and mighty, you and your perfect pregnant wife Alayna. With your perfect child and your perfect home.

You weren't always perfect. Your past is filled with misdeeds.

Does your wife know all your secrets?

Would she stand behind you if she did?

You think because she’s on bedrest you can protect her? How sweet.

Sleep tight, you two.

-An Old Friend.





Amazing! I was so excited to delve back into the world of Hudson and Alayna Pierce to see what everyone is up to! To prepare, I even listened through all the audibles this spring, lol. This book did not disappoint and I felt reconnected with all these characters I love so much. I really enjoyed the mystery/suspense factor as well! Someone is out to get them! I can’t wait until my friends can read this book, too!

Fixed Forever is like a family reunion. It has familiar faces, names, and people. It has drama. It has happy moments, sad moments, and Tracey in your face moments. Totally a family reunion of sorts!

It felt like being home, at least. Hudson and Laynie have always had a special place in my heart. They are their own world. So when someone(s) from their past are on a path to destroy their world, I needed to be front and center. Between my calming speeches for Alayna and my own rage-filled need to beat someone, I found myself falling victim to the same ploys as our dynamic duo. And I wouldn't have it any other way!

Fixed Forever is the start of something...
And Hudson Pierce intends to finish it!
(Even with my swooning on the sidelines)
But you know what they say...the road to Hell is paved with good intentions!

Good luck Hudson and may the odds be ever in your favor! (Lol.😉) Seriously, this is Hudson Pierce when aren't the odds in his favor!?!

Check out this Hudson and Alayna inspired cocktail! Perfect for summertime!!


All of Me The smokiness of Hudson’s favorite scotch meets Alayna’s signature tequila in the mezcal base of this drink to celebrate our favorite couple. Cherry juice reminds them of the blossoms they married under, while the tea is a comforting ingredient from mornings around the family table, representing just how far they’ve come from that first drink in the Sky Launch. 1 ½ mezcal ½ oz marashchino cherry juice 3 oz hibiscus tea Combine the ingredients in a tall glass, then add ice. Garnish with a cherry, an orange slice, and enjoy a drink with the one who has all of you.


About Laurelin
