One year.

That’s how long Eden has been gone.

Taken.

Stolen.

That’s how long I’ve been living my life, blissfully ignorant while I was enjoying my new life with my new love, she was going through hell.

One year.

That’s how long Matteo has had her.

Matteo used to be caring. A man that I even loved, although never as much as Arlo.

But Arlo and I leaving changed him. Hardened him again. And now who knows what he is capable of.

One year.

That’s how long Eden has been with Matteo.

Was she beaten?

Tortured?

Raped?

Or did she soften Matteo’s heart, the way Arlo softened his with me?

One year is a long time. I’m a horrible friend for not realizing she was hurting. She needed me, and I wasn’t there. I’ll never forgive myself if Matteo hurt Eden.

Eden’s strong. She’ll survive another few hours until Arlo and I get to Italy to rescue her. Arlo didn’t want me to go. He wanted to go alone. But there was no way I won’t be there for my friend, now that I know she needs me.

Eden’s strong, but I know how being stolen affects people. Makes you addicted. To getting better. To proving you haven’t changed. To life.

But sometimes, you get addicted to the darkness and let it consume you. With no hope to escape.

๐ŸŒŸBOOK BLITZ:๐ŸŒŸ Shopping for a Baby's First Christmas by Julia Kent {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}




Shopping for a Baby's First Christmas by Julia Kent

Release Date: November 27th 2018
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Contemporary,Romance

My mother wants all her kids and grandkids to spend Christmas Eve at her house and wake up on Christmas morning together. 

Sounds reasonable, right?

And it would be.

If it weren’t my mother.

My husband, Declan, is protesting any involvement, though he’s openly intrigued by the idea of claiming his territory by suggesting we have sex in my childhood bed.

And by ‘suggest,’ I mean make a series of really hot offers that make me whimper when I have to say no.

Wait – why am I saying no again?

Mom has turned her house into a Christmas showcase that makes Frankenmuth look like the picked-over clearance rack at Target on December 26. You know those crazy people on Etsy who make felted gnomes out of belly button lint and use … a certain kind of hair… to make thatched roofs on little decorative elf homes?

Those people are saner than my mother.

There is no force of nature stronger — and more emotionally volatile — than a fifty-something grandmother determined to create holiday memories.

Wait a minute. Maybe there is.

My husband.




{EXCERPT}

“Mmmmm,” I hear myself purring as I open my eyes in the big king-size bed at our Victorian B&B here in the Berkshires. A bed that I can stretch out in, because I smell coffee from afar and Dec isn’t between the sheets.

Neither is our seven-month-old daughter, Ellie.

I have the entire bed to myself. I might be married to a billionaire, but when you’re the mother of a clingy baby, this right here is true luxury.

A whiff of cinnamon accompanies that coffee and now I wonder if I’m dreaming. My naked body rolls against the high-thread-count Egyptian cotton and my legs are smooth. As I stretch, I realize my nipples are free. No one is touching me.

This must be a dream.

In real life, there would be a baby babbling “Da da da da da” in tones that either mean happiness, terror, hunger, or plain old pay-attention-to-me-now-because-I-am-the-center-of-the-universe, you-underling.

But not now.

In real life, there are always busy fingers exploring my ears and pulling my earrings and poking into my my mouth when I try to talk on the phone.

And in real life, little teeth bite down, hard, when my milk runs out.


So I must be dreaming, because as I open my eyes, a handsome, hot, endlessly naked man is smiling at me, hair tousled over his forehead as he holds two steaming mugs of coffee and says in a low, happy voice, “You're up!”

๐ŸŒŸCOVER REVEAL!๐ŸŒŸ The Hookup Handbook by Kendall Ryan




The Hookup Handbook by Kendall Ryan

Release Date: April 9th 2019 by Kendall Ryan
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

My love wand is on a strike.
As bad as that blows, pun unintended, it’s ten times worse for me. I’m a male escort, but not just any escort, I’m the escort. The one with a mile-long waiting list and a pristine reputation that’s very well-deserved.

Only now, I’m on hiatus. Because after years of pleasing women all over the city, my man missile decides to get finicky. And the only woman he wants? Someone I can never have—my best friend’s younger sister, the nerdy and awkwardly adorable Sienna.

She’s working at the agency this summer, keeping me organized, handling paperwork, and most importantly, keeping me on track to finish writing my book about sex and intimacy, which is due to my publisher in thirty days.

She thinks I hate her, that I don’t want her here. The truth is much more twisted. I get hard every time she walks into my office. Her wide blue eyes and pouty mouth drive me wild with desire, and if she stays, I’m not sure how much longer I can stay away from her.

Little Miss Overachiever says she’s here to help? Fine. I’m going to put her nerdy, curvy tush to work.

๐ŸŒŸBLOG TOUR:๐ŸŒŸ All of Me by A.L. Jackson {REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!}




All of Me by A.L. Jackson

Release Date: December 3rd 2018
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

A stand-alone forbidden romance...

People call me callous. Arrogant. Ruthless. 
I call myself tenacious. 
One of the most powerful attorneys in Charleston, I don’t let anyone or anything stand in my way.
Until a chance encounter changes everything.

One glance.
One touch.
One night.
It only leaves me wanting more.

But Grace is off limits. Most people would even say forbidden.
Everyone knows an attorney can’t sleep with his client. 
Too bad I already did. 

And even with the threat of losing everything, I don’t know if I can stop myself from having her again...




My Review:

Ever since reading More of You, I couldn’t wait to read All of Me and it didn’t disappoint at all. A.L. Jackson haw once again managed to deliver a truly heartwarming story about second chances at life and love. 

At the beginning of the story we get to meet Ian Jacobs, he is at a gala that his firm is throwing for charity. Having worked closely with the partners at the Millstrom, Garcia & Grant firm he knows exactly what to do to gain their favor and stay on top. But he feels that he should be in charge and wants the power all to himself. Ian will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants or so he thinks. It’s at the gala that he sees a beautiful stranger and all he wants to do is make her his. Yet, after spending a short time together she backs away and runs telling him that she can’t be with him. He can see that she is heartbroken and vulnerable so when she runs away from him he can’t help but to chase after her. Ian knows that he is not capable of having a relationship, not when he has a whole different future ahead of him but Grace has made a mark on him and he can’t seem to get her out of his head. That is until she shows up at his office asking for him that everything in his life is about to change forever.

Grace Dearborne holds a massive weight on her shoulders, one that she can’t seem to let go no matter how much she tries. Her future has been threatened as well as the ones she loves the must and she is not going to stop until she is safe again. She had only one thing in mind when she attended the gala and that was to find a powerful attorney to fight a powerful empire. Yet, things turned out differently when she meets Ian. He is very handsome man who can make her forget her worries and he seems trustworthy enough to let him in. But that’s exactly what she can’t do and she runs away hoping to never see him again. That is until destiny brings them back together and she asks him to help her fight a battle that could potentially damage his career forever. Needless to say, when they start to spend time together the more close they get and she has to figure out if a relationship with him is worth it or not.

I absolutely loved reading All of Me, it was a well thought out story and written story from beginning to end. The characters go through ups and downs as they discover if they are truly meant to be with each other. Ian is your typical bad boy who has the money and looks to get just about anyone that he wants but his ultimately goal is to make partner at the firm. He doesn’t care for anything else until he meets Grace. She is a hair stylist who is making ends meet in order to support her family. But she holds a secret, one that could change her future with Ian. She knows that he is her only choice when she finds out that he is an attorney and when he decides to help her everything changes between them. That is until she finds out what Ian’s secret is that she wants to protect him as well. It’s evident that both of the characters have secrets of their own, but together they are unstoppable as long as they are together. 

Although the story is part of a series, it is fine to read it on its own or after reading the first book. Some of the old characters do appear in this book, but the story is understandable without having read the first book. I cannot say enough good things about this story and the ending was everything. There is so much to this story that I enjoyed (not wanting to spoil it too much!). It’s a story worth checking out as well as the first story in the series. You will not regret it! :)

๐ŸŒŸBOOK BLITZ:๐ŸŒŸ Reckless by Sybil Bartel {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}




Reckless by Sybil Bartel

Release Date: December 3rd 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Bodyguard.

Escort.

Bad boy.


I didn’t come from the wrong side of the tracks. I was the wrong side. Every clichรฉ you could think of, my family embraced. The only advantage I had was being the best looking out of all my brothers. Except when I joined the Marines, looks didn’t count for shit downrange.

I wasn’t active duty anymore, and working for the best personal security firm in the business, my looks were getting me in more trouble than they were worth. I just didn’t realize how much trouble until a princess from a country I’d never heard of asked for me by name. Her request was simple—me, my gun, four days and five parties. But she recklessly failed to mention one crucial part of the assignment… pretend to be her new fiancรฉ.

Now she was about to find out how reckless a bodyguard could be.

*RECKLESS is the third standalone book in the Alpha Bodyguard Series.

The Alpha Bodyguard Series

SCANDALOUS – Tank’s story
MERCILESS – Collins’s story
RECKLESS – Tyler’s story
RUTHLESS – Sawyer’s story
 




{EXCERPT}

Luna opened the door immediately. “Living room.” He stepped back, letting me in.

I smelled her before I saw her. 

Exotic spice mixed with ocean breeze, and I knew I was fucked. That kind of smell only came from someone with more money than I’d make in a hundred lifetimes—the kind of money that was generations deep. I may have grown up poor as hell, but this job had taught me there was all kinds of money.

This one was going to be classy.

I rounded the corner and almost froze in my tracks.

She wasn’t anything like the matriarch I was expecting. She was young.

And fucking stunning. 

Covering my surprise, I smiled and, using my manners, held my hand out. “Damian Tyler, ma’am, but everyone calls me Tyler.”

Gorgeous, dark caramel-colored eyes looked at my hand then darted to my face, like she was as surprised to see me as I was her. Then her expression shut down, and her dark brown, almost black, hair shifted to cover half her face. Her hands clasped in front of her, resting regally against her white dress, she didn’t lift her slim, tanned arm to meet my gesture. She didn’t even move. She just stared at me.

Glancing at Luna, I dropped my hand.

Luna tipped his chin toward the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen. “This is Sophia Paradis.”

Caught in her unwavering gaze again, I stared back. “Okay.”

Luna glanced at her. “Keep going?”

She inclined her chin once.

“More specifically,” Luna added. “This is Princess Calandra Sophia Paradis Spiros.”

๐ŸŒŸRELEASE DAY BLITZ!๐ŸŒŸ Bad Reputation by S.L. Scott {GIVEAWAY!}




Bad Reputation by S.L. Scott

Release Date: December 7th 2018 by S.L. SCOTT
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

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 packed her bags and 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 fiancรฉ. 

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 to 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 fiancรฉ. 

As if that didn’t complicate things, he’s 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.
