#NewRelease #Reviews BAD REPUTATION by S.L. Scott @slscottauthor


Read for FREE on Kindle Unlimited

You won’t go wrong with this delicious tale from S.L. Scott. Her take on royal romance is truly unique and divine!” ~Author Adriana Locke
Being bad never felt so good.
I fell for Ally the moment I saw her. Who doesn’t like a confident, intelligent woman with curves I could spend days exploring?
Who am I kidding?
I have.
Many times.
Our story ended abruptly when she left like we weren’t meant to be. We are. So I’m calling her bluff. That’s how I ended up thousands of miles from home, standing next to a man who claims to be her fiancé.
Being good has never felt so bad.
When it comes to a successful man with an incredible body and biteable jaw aka Hutton . . . let’s just say willpower is not my strong suit.
Need more?
Try bad-boy American.
You’re welcome.
Embracing my newfound good girl status, I do the right thing and start my reign. My desires no longer matter. The monarchy, the people, and my country do. There is no place for love in this new life.
But I never expected to see him again, much less standing next to my royally appointed soon-to-be fiancé.
As if that didn’t complicate things, the man I once told I love you to is wearing a perfectly tailored tuxedo and my favorite smirk. I straighten my crown and adjust my dress, realizing this good girl never stood a chance. I’ll take the bad reputation if I get him.

This SECOND CHANCE ROYAL STANDALONE Romance by New York Times Bestselling Author, S.L. Scott, will have you feeling like the Queen of your own fairy tale. One-click this new romance and fall in love while reading.

This book was so unexpected it wasn't at all what I thought It would and that's not a bad thing because I love when an author surprises you. 

With Hutton and Ally the readers get a new modern take on a royal romance book which I really enjoyed. There is laughs along the way of this sweet romantic tale and it's steamy and passionate. Hutton will make you swoon I just love when a male character isn't afraid to show how much he loves his woman without losing his own identity. The same goes for Ally she loves with a passion that leaps of the page. 

If your looking for a fun quirky but passionate love story this book is for you.

I can't help it but every time I see the cover Taylor Swift's song Bad Reputation runs through mind as though it's the theme song for this book. I almost think it is after reading it.

Bad Reputation brings us Hutton Everest at his best. Like his brother Ethan there's a lot on the line. He met the one. He fell for her in a crowded bar. That was the easy part. Nothing after that is easy. 

It's not easy but it's sweet and supporting and everything you want in a partner. Hutton is a keeper - in every way....

A tragic loss. A broken pack. A lone wolf.
The pack war was drawing closer, and Ariane found herself at a crossroad amid the chaos that was her life.
Which road should she follow? One gave her a chance at normalcy, while the other threw her deeper into turmoil.
She had new powers, a shifter for a boyfriend, and blood on her hands. There was also the lone wolf who had been cast out and sought solace with Ari as he fought to return home.
This wasn’t how she thought her life would play out. Nevertheless, a decision had to be made. And in the middle of it was Orion, wondering which road Ari would follow.

Squeeeeeeee!!! Squee! Squeeeeeeeeee!
No, those aren't mouse squeaks. Those are straight up squeaks of delight, frustration, and righteous indignation. Squeaks of love, happiness, and hope. 

This series is going to kick ass while taking names. 

The Somber Call is full of feels, angst, and everything a bookworm needs for their happy place. Struggles with relationships, fear of making a negative impsct, and fear of not being enough. Ari struggles with the typical insecurities we all face but in a much grander level. 

It is imperative you read this series in order. There is no way to grasp what is happening otherwise. Heed The Somber Call. Realize that nothing will ever be the same and embrace that which you know is right...

We pick up the story where we left them in book one which you really need to read first. This series has reawakened my love for every thing paranormal thank you Michelle. 

I love everything about these books, the covers the story the characters and most of all the writing because it's phenomonal. Ari has had so much to deal with and the action doesn't let up in at all. She is faced with tough decisions with more surprises revealed. Orion is my man but oh did Ford make me giggle. 

I can't wait to get my hands on book three.

#NewRelease #Reviews #5star HIGH REWARD (Point of No Return #2) by Brenna Aubrey @GiveMeBooksBlog @BrennaAubrey

Title: High Reward

Series: Point of No Return #2
Author: Brenna Aubrey
Publisher: Silver Griffon Associates 
Genre: Military Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: December 6, 2018


From USA Today Bestselling author Brenna Aubrey: Don’t miss this emotional conclusion to Ryan & Gray’s stunning duet, lauded as “sharp, sensitive” and “pretty wonderful” by the New York Times book review.

He was looking for redemption. Instead, he found her.

After a rocky start, former Navy SEAL-turned-astronaut Ryan “Ty” Tyler and nerdy flight psychologist Gray Barrett found they worked well together. Ty managed to tame his playboy reputation, and cautious Gray got her first taste of adventure. They had a good thing going. Until a good thing turned into a smoking hot thing...and that turned into a falling-in-love thing.

Now Ty’s facing an impossible choice. Shake the demons of his past, or give up a future with the only woman he could ever love.


I absolutely LOVE this duet!
I've been needing a good steamy damaged-man-meets-strong-woman romance with all the angst and feels. This set hit the spot! I ate up all that turmoil and heartbreak like a starved reader! It hurts so good...
It is great, too, to read a storyline that is different than so many that are already out there. I loved the premise of the space flight, the astronaut team dynamics, the PTSD situations, and the therapist side of things (Gray riding the line of not being a therapist but focusing on being a friend). 

I feel like the whole story came together really well. I was hooked from the beginning and couldn't put it down! I highly recommend these books! <3

Suddenly, I felt a cold sensation on my upper shoulder, just below my neck. I turned, and Ryan was right behind me. “What was that?”
“I think I accidentally spilled frosting on you. Here.” He traced a path along the top of my shoulder toward my neck, and I involuntarily shivered. In response, his other hand came up and cupped my other shoulder and his head dipped down to land right where he’d put the frosting.
Right there. In that spot. He was licking and sucking, getting every last bit as his hands traveled down my arms, clamping around my elbows to hold me still.
“Accidentally, huh?” I rasped, my voice sounding alien to my own ears. Likely it was my aroused voice. And likely he knew exactly what it meant when I talked this way.
He was an expert at turning me on and doing it quickly. Zero to Mach 5 in seconds flat. Probably easier than flying his training jet. My panties were already wet, and my nipples were painfully hard and probably very visible under my thin tank top.
I cleared my throat. “I, uh.” And cleared my throat again. “Have another batch to do.”
Without a word he reached out and turned off the oven. “Let’s hit pause on that little project for now,” he said in that low, gravelly voice of his. His aroused voice. I knew that voice, too, and it usually seemed in perfect sync with the tight squeezing sensation in my belly and lower that screamed for his hands and mouth—and other parts—to ease the tension and bring release.
“You are a wicked, wicked man.”
“This I already know,” he said between more kisses on the back of my neck that sent electric shocks down my spine and wound that tension deep inside me even tighter.
I spun in his arms, and though I could barely reach it, I managed to scoop up my own dollop of frosting from the edge of the metal mixing bowl. He watched me then raised his brow to ask the unspoken question—where are you going to put that?
My answer? I grabbed the hem of his t-shirt and rucked it up, holding it just below his collar, then liberally spread the frosting across his upper abs. Double yum.
He sucked in a quick breath, and that was enough to get me diving right in. “Mmm. What kind of mess do we have here? Better start cleaning up.”
The frosting was sweet, creamy. Delectable, really. Buttercream was delicious. Buttercream slathered across Ryan’s rock-hard abs? Perfection.

I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit. Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage. They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

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

Title: The Ex Effect
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 5, 2018
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

The headline could write itself:
Matthew Hawkins, star defensive end, comes out of retirement to play for the Washington Wolves. 
Which is perfectly fine by Ava Baker—it makes her job as publicist for the team easier. 
There’s only two problems. This particular football player was her first crush. 
The bigger problem: Matthew Hawkins was once engaged to her older sister. 
It’s been ten years since Ava has seen Matthew. He’s bigger, better looking, and best of all—completely single. Despite his history with her sister, the attraction between Ava and Matthew isn’t so one-sided anymore. 
It’s hot enough to burn down the entire city of Seattle. 
But this headline is far more complicated to write. And not just for the press or what it means for her family— because once her heart is involved, there’s no predicting the ending.

Oh hells yeah!!! Karla Sorensen brought her A game or should I say her Wolves...

I loved book one (The Bombshell Effect) of this series. It was dreamy and not so perfectly perfect. But this book, The Ex Effect, wow!!! It's a whole new ballgame! (You can smirk at that, I won't tell!)

It may be the same team (mostly) but this is a whole different play. A Hail Mary of epic proportions. The Ex Effect is filled with the stuff that makes us readers crazy:
- Terrible family dynamic that makes you both insane and want to drink copious amounts of alcohol even though they aren't yours
- History. Seriously dramatic history. Hard to get past history.
-Feels. Damn it. You aren't getting out of this book without an emotional connection. 
-hope. Tons of motherfluffing hope. The stars in your eyes, googly eyed kind

And let's not forget for men in tight pants who grunt and workout a lot flexing their insanely hot muscles... (What!?! It's a legit point.) I won't even have to point out that they are some of the sweetest, sexiest specimens in football. Nope. You know it. I know it. And if you're caught up you can help me portion for a certain silent and bloody guy to get his story. Lord knows we can't ask him. He'd never volunteer it. 😉

I loved the first book in the series so when I found out about this one i couldn't wait to get my hands on it. The blurb sets the story perfectly and intrigued me.

There is no way to disguise that Ava and Matthew's stir is going to be emotional and full of angst. And boy oh boy did the author bring it to the readers in spades. 

Like the previous book the author didn't give us a weak simpering female lead. Ava has made it on her own, she's strong successful sassy but how she can keep her eyes I'm in the locker room I don't know. She has more willpower than me that a for sure. Matthew is just ..... sigh I just loved him. He's charming kind, witty sexy a leader on the field and a boss on the bedroom. 

Some may not like the storyline because of their past history however the author does an amazing job getting the reader over that hurdle. What happens to family when a connection can't be denied.

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.
