RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - A CRACK IN EVERYTHING BY L.H. COSWAY


We're celebrating the release of A CRACK IN EVERYTHING by L.H. Cosway!

 
Title: A Crack In Everything (Cracks Duet)
Age Group: Adult
Release Date: January 30, 2018
A Crack in Everything
Life used to be simple.

I was a city girl with humble dreams. Then Dylan O’Dea broke into my flat, held me against the wall and told me to stay quiet.

It was like in the movies, where the universe zeros in on a single scene. I looked into his eyes and knew he was going to change me.

For Dylan, the sky was always falling. He showed me how our world is a contradiction of beauty and ugliness. How we choose to ignore the awful and gloss over it with the palatable. How you need just a tiny drop of something unsavoury to create every great scent.

Pretty deep for a pair of teenagers living in a block of council flats in inner city Dublin, right Probably. But we weren’t typical. We both had our obsessions. Mine was growing things, Dylan’s was scent. He taught me how to use my nose, and I introduced him to the magic of flowers.

I had no idea that one day he’d build an empire from what we started together. But before that, there was love and happiness, tragedy and epic heartbreak…

My name is Evelyn Flynn and I’m going to tell you about the crack in everything.

A Crack in Everything is Book #1 in L.H. Cosway’s Cracks duet.


Releasing February 6, 2018!







How the Light Gets in
He came back to me 16 minutes and 59 seconds into Beethoven’s Symphony no. 7.

We parted amid tragedy, so it seemed poetic. Dylan O’Dea, my childhood sweetheart, had once
meant everything to me. Now we were strangers, and honestly, after eleven years I never thought
I’d see him again.

I lived in the world of the average, of getting paid by the hour and budgeting to make ends meet. But
Dylan, he lived in the world of wealth and success. He’d achieved the great things I always suspected
he would. The dissatisfaction he’d felt as a teenager had obviously been an excellent motivator.

He started a business from scratch, pioneered a brand, and created perfumes adored by women
across the globe. I was just one of the people who’d been there before. Now he was living his best
life in the after.

And me, well, I’d been in a dark place for a while. Slowly but surely, I was letting the light back in, but there was something missing. I was an unfinished sentence with an ellipsis at the end. And maybe, if I was brave enough to take the chance, Dylan could be my happy ending.

How the Light Gets In is Book #2 and the concluding installment in L.H. Cosway’s Cracks duet.


ANGIE'S 4 STAR REVIEW

Dylan and Evelyn are two teens living in inner city Dublin. Dylan lost his mum to cancer and he now lives with his depressed and paranoid dad. Evelyn's mum walked out on her and she's living with her loving aunt. Dylan hates this life. He has big dreams. Whereas Evelyn is more content. She's always cheerful. They start a sweet romance but a tragedy opens Evelyn's eyes to what Dylan has been saying all along about their neighborhood.

I liked this book. I thought Dylan was a little too serious but it made sense for how he grew up. I'm happy with the choice he made at the end. I'm looking forward to the next book. I do love a time jump. Well done.

Shayla Perkins isn’t the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean “Stitch” Molina. So when he gives her the world’s biggest rejection, that’s it—she’s done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn’t mean he’s interested in her. Or does it?

Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he’s paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected—especially from a man like Sean. He’s tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.

Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give one another want they want most . . . is to let each other go?
  




SHANDA'S 5 STAR REVIEW


Bad for You is the third book in the Dirty Deeds series and in my opinion it is the best. This is the story of Sean "Stitch" Molina and Shayla. If you have read the others (you can read this as a standalone) you will remember Stitch. He is the broody cook at Whitecaps and Shayla is waitressing but trying to start her own business.

Shayla is crushing hard on Stitch but after he rejects her, she tries to let it go and move on. Shayla is clueless to the fact that Stitch does want her but he does not feel worthy of her attention. I think J. Daniels did a fantastic job with Stitch’s story. His backstory was so incredibly sad. Despite his horrible upbringing he has had some good come his way in life. He just cannot see he is worthy of love. I freaking love a good redemption story and Stitch worked damn hard to get back what he lost.

When Shayla finds herself in a bind, Stitch steps in to help her. This leads them to developing a friendship. As they spend time together, Shayla starts to learn why Stitch is broken. This makes the already determined Shayla fully commit to helping Stitch. Shayla goes in guns blazing and vows to fight against Sean’s inner demons and anyone on the outside who dares to hurt Sean. I thought Shayla was a kick ass heroine. She was funny and feisty and wasn’t afraid to get in anyone’s face; including Sean. It was comical that she was so tiny but for Sean she took on the world. She was willing to bury her feelings for Stitch in order to get him to a better place. I have to say the tattoo scenes got to me. I would have cried as hard as Shayla did. You could feel her rage at the wrong done to Stitch and her desperation to make him whole.

Stitch and Shayla’s characters were well written. I loved the inclusion of Stitch’s ex and the relationship there. In addition, you get a glimpse of the rest of the Dirty Deeds gang. All in all this story was deeper and more emotional than I expected it to be. Well done!

BLOG TOUR - MIDNIGHT BLUE BY L.J. SHEN

SBPR-RB-BANNER.jpg


Midnight Blue, an all-new sexy standalone from LJ Shen is LIVE!
LJSMidnightBlueBookCover6x9_BW_324.jpg

Midnight Blue

Author: LJ Shen

Release Date: January 18th

It should have been easy.
I needed the money. He needed a babysitter to keep him from snorting himself to death.
I was cherry-picked especially for him. Responsible. Optimistic. Warm. Innocent.
The worst part is that I should have known better.
Alex Winslow. British rock star. Serial heartbreaker. Casanova with whiskey eyes.
“Don’t get near the devil in a leather jacket. He’ll chew you up and spit you out.”
Sounds familiar? That’s because it was a headline in a tabloid the second time he got arrested.
Guess what? I didn’t listen.
I signed the contract.
World tour. Three months. Four Continents. One hundred shows.
My name is Indigo Bellamy, and I sold my soul to a tattooed god.
Problem was, my soul wasn’t enough for Alex Winslow. He ended up taking my body, too.
Then he took my heart.
Then he took my all.

About LJ Shen:
L.J. Shen is an International #1 best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat. Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets peoples’ birthdays and never sends Christmas cards. She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.




4.5 STAR REVIEW


Color me impressed. I am not always a big reader of the Rock Star genre anymore. Let’s face it they have all been done before. What makes this a winner is the characters and I couldn't put it down. L.J. Shen has written about a man with demons and he is really ugly at times. Alex is an addict; a nasty mean addict. L.J. Shen does not pretty him up for the sake of romance and I loved it. Indie is your quintessential good girl. Do not mistake her for a weak willed woman. She may be shaking inside but she has bite.

Indie has been hired to babysit Alex and help keep him clean. She is being paid a hefty sum to put up with his mess. Indie needs the job so come hell or high water she is determined to deal with his abuse to help her family. Alex is determined to get rid of her but he starts to realize she can be useful to him so he stops fighting it. Tapping into Indie’s pain helps him write is next album. In addition, he becomes obsessed with getting her into his bed.

Midnight Blue is full of people making bad decisions. From Indie and Alex to all the people surrounding them this book is loaded with angst and heartache. However, with pain comes growth and I really liked the changes Indie and Alex went through. It also has a few surprises that I didn’t see coming and it rounded out the story nicely for me. Well Done!

RELEASE BLITZ - UNCHARTED BY JULIE JOHNSON









Title: Uncharted
Author: Julie Johnson
Genre: Survival Love Story
Release Date: January 10, 2018



Blurb

“When we crash-landed on the island, I thought my story was over. Turns out, it was about to begin.” 

He was an asshole from the first moment we met. 

I took one look at the stranger in the airport terminal and knew he was exactly the kind of man my mother spent seventeen years warning me against. Gruff, grumpy, and far too good-looking to stare at without experiencing heart palpitations. 

Thankfully, I’d never see him again. 

Or so I thought. 

I couldn’t have known our plane would crash. 
I couldn’t have predicted we’d be the only survivors. 
I couldn’t have ever, in my wildest dreams, anticipated that the asshole from the airport would become my only source of solace in the darkness. 

It’s so wrong to want him, for so many reasons. But as the months slip by and our hopes of rescue grow dimmer… the spark between us kindles into something impossible to ignore. 

Sometimes, survival requires swimming in uncharted waters. But if salvation doesn’t come soon…

I might just drown in him.  

** UNCHARTED is a full-length standalone story of survival and forbidden love. Due to action elements, adult language, and sexual content, it is recommended for readers ages 16 and up. **

COVER REVEAL - RECKLESS BY LEX MARTIN








Title: Reckless
Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs
Photo: Perrywinkle Photography
 Release Date: February 20, 2018



Blurb

Tori…
For the record, I’m not going to hook up with my boss.

I'm a lot of things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.

I don't want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won't get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him. 

Ethan…
Between us, she's the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce. 

What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn't notice.

My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn't matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can't have and shouldn't want, no matter how much I crave her.
