#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.

#NewRelease #Review MY BROTHER'S BILLIONAIRE BEST FRIEND by Max Monroe @jennw23 @authormaxmonroe

MBBBF - RB banner

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.

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.

#NewRelease #Reviews WICKED PROMISES by LA Cotton @authorlacotton



Wicked Promises, an angsty, emotional new adult romance from L A Cotton is live!!!


The edgy, angsty, addictive YA/NA crossover series from L A Cotton continues...

Forever is a long time.

Summer Stone-Prince has her whole life mapped out. Attend college with her childhood sweetheart. Graduate. Get married and live happily-ever-after. But all it takes are two little words and everything changes.


Lost and alone, Summer finds herself wondering how she’ll ever weather the storm.

Until she finds comfort in the arms of an unexpected savior.

There’s only one problem—he can’t promise forever, he can only give her right now.


Wicked Promises is the seventh book in the Wicked Bay series but can be read as a standalone


"The angst slapped me in the face and I was alternating between crying and laughing throughout the whole story." Wendy's Wycked Words 
"A story of heartbreak and healing, LA Cotton has just once again proved why she’s a 1-click author for me." ~ Queen of the Books

This is quiet, reserved, so-in-love with her childhood sweetheart, Summer's book and it's safe to say this did not go the way I expected. 

If I'm honest I hadn't really given much thought to Summer's book and I'm kind of glad because the whole book was a revelation to me. I fell head over heels in admiration for this amazing young woman. The decisions she made showed a maturity beyond her years. I was silently cheering her on every step of the way. The new friendship she formed I'm hoping will blow you away just like it did me. The level of care and understanding was just what she needed. Her level of emotional growth from when we first met her until this book is immense. Catching up with Maverick, Lo, Kyle and Laurie always makes me happy.

This is an author who continues to delight me with the unexpected in her stories. I never EVER want to leave these characters. 

* * *

They mean so much and get sometimes they mean so little. A promise is the embodiment of hope. And yet when it's broken or not kept its an empty shell of shattered dreams.

Whether promises are wicked or not, LA Cotton was definitely feeling wicked writing this. I lashed out so many times of I hadn't been alone people would have been questioning my sanity. I raged. I was heartbroken. I was angry. I felt betrayed. I felt hope. I felt love. Wicked Promises will definitely be testing your strength and your devotion to the Stone-Prince clan. I created some lovely hashtags for my venting purposes but my favorite is #killNickthePrick 

I can't say more but just know it's with a heavy heart that I will take great joy in harming his most cherished parts with a plastic fork! 😊 For those that think that was too much, bite me! 😆 Or Nick! 😆 While I rage against #thePrick, I will say I was happily surprised by our hero. I think he's an outstanding addition to the Stone-Prince clan.

Enjoy Promises...there are plenty to hold onto!

Edgy. Angsty. Addictive Romance.

Author of mature young adult and new adult novels, L A is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find L A immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.

5 of 5 stars

All the trouble resides with the Raiders! 

Or that's what Hailee would like you to believe! The Trouble With You is a book you cant put down and an audiobook that you will try and squeeze in even when you don't have time. (Hence my typing this at 12:05 after having just finished😉)
Hailee and Cam aren't strangers, at least not to me. I already read the book. loved the book. Told everyone in hearing range (as well as Insta and Facebook) about the book. Now let me tell you how much better it is in audio! Wen Ross has a voice that will make you stutter to stop while doing you chores. (I have proof!) I was cooking and legit forgot what I was doing because his voice, his emoting, and his words had me stopping to pay attention. (No worries, I was able to save dinner.) The sexy deep voice is perfect for Cam. He had me wishing I was watching it as a movie just so I could watch his facial expressions as well. And Sarah! As my first Sarah Puckett audiobook, I can say I will be searching the list for more. Her voice and her emotions were right on. She brought Hailee to life in a whole new way for me. The sarcastic quips and snide comments take on a new life with her attitude behind them. 
I loved everything about this book/audiobook except for one thing...its over!
