#NewRelease #Reviews UNTIL DECEMBER by Aurora Rose Reynolds @GiveMeBooksPR @auroraroseR

Title: Until December
Series: Until Her #5
Author: Aurora Rose Reynolds
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2019


Gareth Black is drawn to December Mayson the moment he spots her across the room at her cousin’s wedding. When he approaches the beautiful woman, she captivates him with her shyness and wit, making him crave her.

With a pull so strong it’s impossible to ignore, December knows there’s something between her and Gareth. She just hopes they’re capable of jumping the hurdles ahead of them.

Two boys, an ex, a surprise that will change everything, and a disgruntled co-worker, guarantee these two will have their work cut out for them if they are going to find their happily ever after.


Another great story in this series from one of my favourite authors. 

December and Gareth's story pulled me in from the start. I loved their relationship it was everything I wanted. It was fun and flirty, tender and sweet with enough heat to melt any frozen heart. Gareth is an amazing single dad, his relationship with them shows the type of man he is. He's tough but fair and so supportive and doing everything he can to ensure they will be great young men. When December comes into their lives she slots in like she's always been there. I saw so much of her mum in December. These books and these families hold a special place in my heart.

"Are you gonna run or jump? "

Until December is a sweet and sexy story. One of many Maysons, December has always had a hard time fitting in with her good girl "persona". The wild bunch she calls family seem to overshadow the sweet first-grade teacher. Until a wedding, she didn't think she'd ever find "The One". 

He never thought there would be anyone...Until December.

With plenty of ups and downs, this book will keep you invested to the very last word. The chemistry and love between these two is palpable.

#Tour #Review MY BROTHER'S BILLIONAIRE BEST FRIEND by Max Monroe @authormaxmonroe

One minute, I’m a woman trying to find her way in the world, and the next, I’m the sender of six of the most embarrassing text messages that have ever been sent in the history of time—or the cell phone. 


My Brother’s Billionaire Best Friend, a hilarious romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Max Monroe, is available now! 

Mabel “Maybe” Willis died a virgin at the very young age of twenty-four.

She leaves behind her parents, Betty and Bruce, her brother, Evan, a laptop filled with one too many Jason Momoa memes, and a Kindle library with more books than one human being could ever finish in a lifetime.

Cause of death: a text message.

Okay. So, I didn’t die.

But I may as well have.

One minute, I’m a woman trying to find her way in the world, and the next, I’m the sender of six of the most embarrassing text messages that have ever been sent in the history of time—or the cell phone. Whatever.

We’re talking code red, send a flipping mayday, the apocalypse is coming kind of texts.

And I didn’t just send them to some random person I’ll never see again.

No. That would be too easy.

I sent them to Milo Ives.

The man who played a starring role in all of my teenage fantasies—and my brother’s lifelong best friend.

And, boy oh boy, has he grown up.

He’s hard-bodied, blue-eyed, jawline-of-stone handsome, crazy successful, and has more money in his bank account than my brain can fathom.

Deflower me, please? I said.

Yeah. Send help.


4.5 snarky, sassy, and innocently adventurous stars

Le sigh. Max Monroe have me swooning again like an eighteenth-century socialite! Without a doubt, Milo is in over his head! Taking out at the knees before he even knew what hit him, Milo is at a loss before this story even begins. 

I have to say Maybe is a great nickname but she's an even better person! (NO JUDGEMENTAL 'SHE'S NOT REAL' BULLSHIT, EITHER!) Sweet, sassy, and more naive than a 24-year-old New Yorker should be, Maybe is the new best friend you need to have. Fortunately for me, where you have Maybe you also get Lena and she is definitely the bringer of all this fun. Bad influence and amazing advice giver Lena is just what Maybe needed to step outside her comfort zone and go after her man!

Max Monroe did it again! Between gasping and laughing my ass off, I found plenty of swoon-worthy moments. This series is funny, sexy, and all kinds of sweet. I liked Greer but I think innocent Maybe is my new favorite. Just don't tell Captain, my Captain, that I really love Milo. I wouldn't want to hurt his ego.

Maybe Here I rest, you guys. I. Mother-flapjacking P. to me. And now, I’m coming to you live from what I believe is the afterlife. Just think of this as that morning show with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest, Live with Kelly and Ryan. Only, change the name to DEAD with Maybe, take away the celebrity guests, and fill the audience with people who don’t mind witnessing a full-on embarrassment-fueled emotional breakdown. Good God, if I would’ve known I was going to kick the bucket right before I reached twenty-five, I sure as shit wouldn’t have spent the last six years of my life slaving away at Stanford for a bachelor’s and master’s degree in English Lit. I would’ve partied in college rather than studying until my eyeballs bled. I would’ve danced on bars. Flashed some nip for beads at Mardi Gras. Actually gone to Mardi Gras. I would have indulged in unlimited pasta night at the Olive Garden instead of counting carbs, and I wouldn’t have stopped binge-watching Game of Thrones on season flipping six. I would have tongue-kissed loads of guys and spread my legs like a contortionist for any of them who seemed reasonably adept. You know, a little bam-bam in my ham-ham. Some not-too-big, but not-too-small P in my V. A good old-fashioned pants-off dance-off… Sex, you guys. I’m talking about sex. And if you haven’t picked up what I’m putting down from my delirious ramble, I’ll lay it out for you. I’ve yet to be sexed up by anyone. That’s right. I have officially bought myself a one-way ticket to the afterlife as a virgin for-freaking-eternity. And now, I guess I’ll never know how it feels to have an actual penis rub up against my G-spot because, you know, I’m dead. And I’m pretty certain God probably frowns upon people flashing their boobs at the angels and public displays of leg-spreading and definitely the unchaste actions of a desperate-to-bone but unwed woman. No way. Heaven’s strictly G-rated. I put it all off. I figured I had time. I mean, I thought I’d at least get to see The Office do a reunion special before I went lights out for good. Although, my parents’ flower shop feels more like purgatory than heaven, and I thought for sure I’d be wearing something other than jean shorts and Converse when I headed to meet the Big Guy upstairs. Honestly, the afterlife feels eerily like real life, and I’m not one to be dramatic, but I have to be dead, you guys. Seriously. Because no one could live through what I did. I’m talking a 10.0 on the Richter Scale of embarrassing and awkward. A Category 5 hurricane of humiliation. A twisting, catastrophic EF5 tornado of comedic disaster. No freaking way I survived that…right? Okay. Fine. So, I can be a little dramatic sometimes… And maybe, just maybe, I’m exaggerating things a bit here, but I’m doing it in the name of self-preservation. Because, trust me, if you did what I did, you’d let yourself mentally pretend to be dead for a little bit too. Because if I’m not dead, I’m going to have to face the consequences of my awful, humiliating, cringeworthy actions. I’m going to have to face him. Milo Ives—a tall, handsome, unbelievably sexy drink of water. A man I’ve known since I was a prepubescent girl. A man I’ve basically been crushing on my whole damn life. A billion-dollar-empire kind of successful man who just so happens to be my brother’s best friend. I’ll say it again for the folks in the back. Milo Ives is my brother’s billionaire best friend. And I’m in way over my head.

#NewRelease #Review SEVER by TL Smith & Melissa Jane @EJBookPromos

Title: Sever
Authors: T.L. Smith & Melissa Jane
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: July 18, 2019

One man’s wife is another’s obsession. We had a love I thought could never be broken. But I was wrong. We weren’t as strong as our vows once promised. Dark secrets and vicious lies, they tore us apart. They cut too deep, leaving open wounds. Pain is something that should never come from the man you love. Forgiveness, understanding, tenderness, yes. But never pain. But the fact remains. He is my husband and I am his wife. Perhaps he should have remembered that a year ago when he committed his first sin against our marriage. And perhaps then, I wouldn’t have fallen for the devil. A devil who had me in his sights from the very beginning. A devil who swore to never let me go.

Well, what a total mindfuck. A marriage in crisis and a new intriguing man on the horizon. I thought I had this one figured out m. Silly me !! I should know by now these authors like to trick tease and manipulate their readers. I had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen. Then boom.... yeah I didn't see that coming.

Who's afraid of the big bad wolf? I couldn't help but to sing that song...Lil' Red Riding Hood by Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs while I type this. 

"Who's that I see walkin' in these woods?
Why, it's Little Red Riding Hood
Hey there Little Red Riding Hood
You sure are looking good
You're everything a big bad wolf could want
Listen to me
Little Red Riding Hood
I don't think little big girls should
Go walking in these spooky old woods alone..."

It's a completely accurate depiction of everything this book is. I still can't decide if I am angry at the way it ended or that it's over. I can say follow your gut and don't let the wolf lead you to your demise. I ignored all my instincts and am now a mess. I've been ravaged by the wolf and left bereft. Everything I thought I wanted is everything I will never want again.

Enjoy your walk through the woods but don't let him lead you astray.

#NewRelease #Reviews TEOFILA'S GUIDE TO SAVING THE SUN by Cynthia A. Rodriguez @GiveMeBooksPR @thecynrodriguez

Title: Teófila's Guide to Saving the Sun
Author: Cynthia A. Rodriguez
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 18, 2019


We’re all saving somebody.

Since the day she met Elijah, Teófila’s been the one being saved.

The girl whose darkest shadows live inside her head and the boy who hides his own with a smile and a song.

But after a terrifying encounter precedes his skyrocket to fame and fortune, the tables turn.

And while attempting to forget his close call with another life—another end—he loses his way back to her.

Now, years later, it’s Teófila’s turn to do the rescuing, even after he’s left her behind.

We’re all saving somebody, but what if we can hardly save ourselves?

What happens when best friends become forgotten lovers?

Or when it’s the moon’s turn to light the sun? 

This book hurts. It's a painful, exorcism of emotions, fears, and toxicity. It's love in it's most ugly, and still so beautiful, form. 

Teófila's Guide to Saving the Sun sounded like a good idea. I saw the blurb, appreciated the unique title and the gorgeous cover art. I shrugged and said sure why not. Wrong reason to read this book!

The feels are almost soul-crushing. The intensity and vibrancy of the emotions are impossible not to feel down to your morrow. The love and lost feelings. The need and hope. Despair and longing. They are echos and also a percussion baton to your skull at the same time. You hear the remnants of their existence while being battered with them in the now. Think of this as a beating. I know, just trust me. You get jumped outside on a starry night. You weren't watching where you were going. You made a wrong turn but didn't realize because you were looking up. The amazing, awe-inspiring stars had you captured in their gazes. When you were hit with the first blow, it was such a shock you didn't have time to react. By the time you have registered the pain, you're already too late to defend yourself. It's six on one or more. You are just trying to protect your head. And then as the blackness seeps in, the pain too much, you see the stars and you ask them why? That is Teófila's Guide to Saving the Sun. 

It's brutal, it's agonizing, and it's so damn beautiful you don't need an answer to the why. You are just so glad you were looking up in the beginning. There are some amazing, inspiring quotes hidden in these pages. I marked my copy up with highlights galore. I can't bear to share them with you because they are such pivotal realizations. But I can't help but tell you, they are life-changing thoughts. Soul warming comfort in a world that isn't so bright.

This has been an amazing year so far for finding new authors and now I have a new to add to my list. 

I remember seeing the cover of the book and I was intrigued. Did I know what to expect, absolutely not but I fell into this story and days later I'm still thinking about it. 

Teófila and Elijah's story spans over 20 years. From young children to teenagers to broken adults. We get a birds-eye view of their all-consuming love and crucially their pain and insecurities. There is a painful truth running throughout the whole book. Sometimes what we show the world on the outside hides do much. This story will make you think and hopefully look a little deeper. Learning to accept who you are and to love that person is the main theme I will take from this book.
