4 STAR REVIEW


Cooper Daniels has enrolled in Penmore but he has an agenda. He does not expect much for his future as an ex-con but he has made a promise. He just needs to stick it out and exact a little revenge for his cellmate. It is not long before he sets his sights on Millie. This complicates his agenda when he realizes how all the players are connected. Does he move forward with his plan or call it off?
Millie is a struggling single mom. Finally, back in school she is determined to give her daughter a dream life. She is working her tail off to save money and complete school. Cooper is not interested in a relationship. He thinks Millie is a pampered princess. However, he soon discovers Millie’s night job and that she is a single mom. His protective instincts kick in and he wants to help her. Despite not feeling like he is not good enough for Millie, he pursues her.

I really liked Millie and Cooper. Millie learns to let go of her old ghosts and trust in someone. Cooper learns that he does have a lot to offer. Flash has just the right amount of angst and the banter was fun. I hope we get more books in this series.


Author Bio

Malorie first started reading romance books when she was twelve years old.

Her mother handed her a copy of Nora Robert’s Midnight Bayou and with resignation said, “Here you’ll love it, just skip the sex scenes.”

It was the only time she ever got to rebel as a kid, because after that day she spent her entire adolescence (and a lot of her adulthood for that matter) sitting inside devouring every romance book ever written.

COVER REVEAL - TATTERED by Devney Perry







   

Thea Landry has always known her place in modern-day society. It’s somewhere just above the trash can her mother dumped her in as a newborn but below the class where much comes easy.

So when a rich and charismatic man takes interest, she doesn’t fool herself into thinking their encounter is anything more than a one-night stand. Months later, she’s kicking herself for not getting his phone number. Or his last name. She’s given up hope of seeing him ever again. Until one day, years later, Logan Kendrick waltzes into her life once more and turns everything she’s built upside down. This time around, she won’t make the same mistake. She’s going to fight to keep him in her life—not for herself. But for their daughter.

BLOG TOUR & REVIEW - THE REAL by Kate Stewart


We're celebrating the release of THE REAL by Kate Stewart!


Contemporary Romance
Stand Alone

Blurb:
They say it happens when you least expect it.

It did for me.

It started the moment I saw the simple message pop up on my computer screen:

Cameron’s Mac: Hi.

And when I met the eyes of the gorgeous man messaging me from across the coffee shop, I never thought my reply would lead to the most intense, sexual, and passionate relationship of my life.

We both agreed to check our bags at the door and put our future hopes and aspirations on the table.

It worked.

I fell in love with his no holds barred attitude, sexy smirk, and undeniably good heart . . . and for a while we forgot about our baggage. We happily tripped over it to get to the other, neither of us willing to show the contents of our pasts in the off chance it could ruin us.

We built our love on a foundation of gray.

It was life in black and white that threatened to tear us apart.






EXCERPT:
Cameron’s Mac: Hi.
I looked above my laptop and took a deep breath before I accepted his invitation.

Abbie’s Mac: Hi.
Abbie, he’s going to wear your skin! I tried to ignore my inner voice.

Cameron’s Mac: I saw you with the homeless guy.
Abbie’s Mac: Ok?
He took a sip out of his Real Men Love Pomeranians mug and shrugged before he typed.

Cameron’s Mac: So, that was nice of you. Most people in the city just walk on by.
Abbie’s Mac: Oh. Most people do walk past Bennie. But he’s different and I’m not most people.
He lifted a brow and bit his lip.

Cameron’s Mac: I see that.

Cameron’s Mac: Want to have your next cup with me?

Say yes, say yes! It’s only coffee!
Abbie’s Mac: No, thank you.
You idiot.
His brows drew tight with his frown.

Cameron’s Mac: Sure? How about some breakfast?
My pulse raced with the memory of my last reaction to that type of attention and the consequences, and I answered without another thought.

Abbie’s Mac: No, thanks.
His chuckle was deep and covered me, even across the space between us. He bit his full bottom lip as he typed, his smirk still intact.

Fuck. Me. Damn it, Abbie!
Cameron’s Mac: Well, I guess today is not my day.

Abbie’s Mac: That’s all you’ve got?

I had no clue why I sent that message . . . why I was bothered that he didn’t try harder. Just that fucking smirk. It was sexy as hell.

He read my message and shrugged as he typed.

Cameron’s Mac: You seem to enjoy coffee. I don’t have an agenda. You’re beautiful, I noticed. I wanted to drink coffee with you. You said no. I’m going to scrape up the rest of my pride now and head out.
He closed his laptop and stood while I deflated. Damn it. He was being nice. Since when are guys just . . . nice?

Am I a man hater? Have I become that woman?
I spoke up as he slipped his computer into a worn leather bag.

“I’m sorry,” I offered in quick apology. “I was expecting some horrible line or screwed up proposition. The web, messaging, anything that has to do with technology has been hazardous for me. I’ve seen enough unsolicited dick pics for a lifetime. I was just being cautious.” And that was the truth. But I’d said it aloud in verbal vomit. Did I really say “dick pics” out loud?

He chuckled again as he looked down at me from where he stood, then grinned.

“Today isn’t the right day.” The husky baritone of his voice matched the silky hue of his eyes, which seemed to darken as he looked me over.

“No?” I asked in a whisper as I sized up his six-foot-plus frame and imagined the possibilities.

“No,” he said. “Maybe we can not have coffee again sometime?”

He’d tapped out with a simple ‘no’ from me. He couldn’t have been that interested in the first place.

I couldn’t deny the disappointment welling up in my ovaries.

Okay.” I lifted the last syllable when he didn’t press further.

Cameron pulled out his wallet and set some money on his table then walked over to mine and did the same.

“At least let me buy your next cup.”

After setting the bills down, he stood over me briefly and I caught his scent—purely masculine. I inhaled as much as I could without being obvious. He didn’t smell like a psycho.

Cameron picked up his man–bag while I pictured running my fingers through his messy, inches thick, dark-brown hair.

Don’t let him leave. Tell him you aren’t that big of a bitch. But that would seem desperate. You aren’t desperate. But you are horny. Omg, are you horny??
As if reading my thoughts, I caught another flash of his teeth and had to bite my cheek to keep my reaction in check.

“I’ll see you.”

“Yeah, see you. And thanks,” I said to his retreating back, an octave louder than necessary. “For the coffee,” I added. Outside the window, Cameron bent and exchanged words with Bennie before sticking some cash in his hand.

Well, Abbie. Guess you’ll just have to wait until the next time you roll out of bed and a beautiful man hits on you. Should happen again, you IDIOT!
Once again, my hesitance had cost me. And I couldn’t help but feel like this time it cost me big.

Sagging into my seat, I continued to stare in his direction, watching those broad shoulders walk out of my life.


4.5 STAR REVIEW
  

Abbie and Cameron meet in a coffee shop. Cameron initiates their conversation by connecting to Abbie’s Mac. Thus begins a series of meet ups. They build a relationship in the shop with messages and coffee cups. They agree to leave their past baggage and not discuss it. This will inevitably lead to trouble for them.

I really loved Abbie and Cameron’s banter and the slow burn. They were flirty, funny, and sweet. They were both learning to trust again due to their damaging past relationships. The problem? How can you really trust or know one another when you leave the past in the past? A past that is not resolved in the present day. I have to say Kate Stewart got me. I DID NOT see the secret that threatened to blow their worlds up. It was a doozy and it was painful. I was impressed at all the hints the author dropped in the story. It was just enough tease, to know something was wrong, but I did not figure it out. I also think the thing that Cameron was going through was unique to a romance book.

The Real is yet another winner by Kate Stewart. If you are looking for a sweet and emotional read this is good read.

BLOG TOUR & REVIEW - THE MAIDEN by Celia Aaron

The Cloister Series

by Celia Aaron Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark Romance, Taboo
Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited! Amazon
I joined the Cloister to find the truth. But I've discovered so much more, and the darkness here is seducing me, pulling me down until all I can think of is him. Adam Monroe, the Prophet's son, a dark prince to an empire that grows by the day. He is tasked with keeping me safe from the wolves of the outside world. But the longer I stay at the Cloister, the more I realize the wolves are already inside and under the Prophet's control. If Adam discovers the real reason I'm here, he'll bay for my blood with the rest of them. Until then, I will be Delilah, an obedient servant of the Prophet during the day and Adam's Maiden at night.

4 STAR REVIEW

The Maiden was a very intriguing read. Take heed to the authors warning. If you have triggers or cult stories are not your thing then you need to skip this. I did love that it had a very Handmaid’s Tale vibe to it. It was creepy, dark, and violent.

Delilah has joined the Cloister to find answers to her sister’s death. Her goal is to get to the truth and take them down. Upon joining the Cloister, you are assigned a Protector. This name is just a ploy for the sinister training they have in store for the Maidens. Delilah is assigned to Adam; the son of the Prophet. Adam has his own agenda and as the story progresses you are still not quite sure what that is. Although it is clear the attraction is strong, it is also very clear they don’t trust each other.

I really liked that we got the POV for both Delilah and Adam. I probably would have hated Adam without it. Despite the dual POV, I still had a hard time with both of them. They were hard to completely root for. I am not sure what their end game is. I do know that I want everyone dead in that Cloister except for a select few. I did feel the story dragged a bit but I do understand Ms. Aaron is trying to world build. I am really hoping for a lot of action in book two. I want the Prophet taken down and I hope Delilah and Adam work to achieve this. All in all this was a good read and I am anxious to get book two.

Tour and Excerpt - The Birthday List by Devney Perry

     

Happily married to her college sweetheart, Poppy lived a blessed life with the husband of her dreams. Then everything changed. She is no longer a wife. She is no longer the envy of her single friends. Now, people look at her with pity as they whisper a single word behind her back.

Widow.

Years after her husband’s tragic death, years of pain and sorrow and wishing for the life she’ll never get back, Poppy decides to finish Jamie’s birthday list. She’ll do the things he wanted to most. Because maybe, just maybe, if she can complete his list, she can start to live again.

Poppy expects going through the birthday list will be hard. She expects it to hurt. But what she doesn’t expect is Cole. Could the man who delivered the news of her husband’s death and shattered her heart be the one to help her put it back together again?

    Turning to the door, I smiled, ready to greet my late-evening customer, but faltered as the door closed behind him. Cole Goodman was walking my way. My belly dipped as I took him in. His aviator sunglasses were perched on top of his chocolate-brown hair. A black polo stretched across his broad shoulders and pulled tight across his muscled arms. His pale-blue jeans molded to his Herculean thighs before draping down to his black, square-toed boots. The leather belt on Cole’s trim waist held both a shining badge and a holstered gun. Cole smiled and locked his light-green eyes on mine as he crossed the room. His straight, white teeth made my breath hitch—something that had happened last night more times than I wanted to admit. Molly, who had turned around from her seat to greet our customer, spun around so her back was to Cole. Her cheeks flushed as she whispered, “Wow.” Wow was right. Cole Goodman was—simply put—gorgeous. He could give a woman a speeding ticket and get a thank-you in return. He inspired women to attempt push-ups in a karate class just for the chance to watch him sweat through his gi. Cole made grown women blush like teenagers and giggle in corners, like those girls at the dojo last night.

               Shanda's  4.5 star review

The Birthday List was a beautiful and very moving story. Poppy is trying to heal after the tragic death of her husband. Before he died he created a list of things he wanted to do before each birthday. In an effort to heal, Poppy starts to do the list herself.

This leads her to Cole. While checking one of the items off the list she runs into Cole. It turns out he is the cop that broke the news of Jamie's death to Poppy 5 years before. Cole is smitten and wants to get to know Poppy. But he knows he has a long road ahead.

I really loved the slow burn for these two. Cole was so incredibly patient. He took all his cues from Poppy and never pushed her. I adored Poppy. You could really feel her love for Jamie. But she had to move on and she was open to trying. Cole was easy to fall for and she deserved to move on.

I am glad I picked this up. I have only read Ms. Perry's first book. It wasn't for me but I can tell her writing is stronger. I will definitely keep an eye out for her next book. Well done!
