🔖 REVIEW BLITZ 🔖 Say You're Mine by Layla Hagen

Say You're Mine by Layla Hagen

Release Date: April 6th 2021
Genres: Romance, Contemporary, Music

I swear I didn’t mean to flirt with the world-famous Brayden Clarke—especially not right in the middle of an interview for a job.

It was a slip—or perhaps a gut reaction to his smoldering eyes and deep, sexy voice.

To my total disbelief, they give me the assignment. My task is simple: advise Brayden and his band on how to communicate with their fans. Easy-peasy. Or so I thought...
I can handle the job, but the sexy lead singer who's intent on getting under my skin might be too hot to resist.

But our lives are too different. His life is under constant scrutiny. I thrive on freedom and spontaneity. I like exploring the streets of New York and meeting up with my siblings without needing security detail.

But when we’re together, all our differences fade, and I can’t get enough of this man. And he won’t quit until he makes me his. 

My Review:

Say You’re Mine is the first book in The Gallaghers Series by Layla Hagen, a sassy and swoon worthy romance between a rock star and a counselor that will leave you wanting for more.

At the beginning of the story we get to meet, Brayden Clarke, lead singer of GreenFire one of the most famous bands around. The band has reached international acclaim, all while topping the charts in the U.S. and abroad. In the twelve years as a band, they have experienced a lot of crazy fan encounters and a breach over their privacy that they are not willing to let go ever again. But it’s their recent album that didn’t reach the amount of sales that the executives were hopping for, that they decided to bring in an expert to help give the band pointers on how to communicate better with the fans, while still remaining private.

That’s when Isabelle Gallagher comes in and it’s one look at her that has Brayden swooning over the woman that is not impressed his fame. She is a breath of fresh air, her sass and her ability to go after what she wants keeps him intrigued by her. Yet, even though he has chemistry with Isabelle, he can’t think about having a future with her. His constant scrutiny by the press makes him unable to give in to the possibly of relationship. It’s the more time they spend together, that makes him realize just how much he is willing to do in order to keep Isabelle for good.

Coming from a small town, Isabelle Gallagher has always wanted to move to New York City. Now that she does, she is ready to get her practice off the ground and start new opportunities. But it’s her new job that will ultimately change her life forever. Her job is simple, to advise the band on how to give the fans what they want while giving the band the privacy that they want. To do that she would have to spend time with each member, but one member stands out the most, Brayden Clarke. He is magnetic and the way he is with her makes her feel wanted and cherish. Their chemistry is off the charts and the more time Isabelle spends with him, the more she stars to fall for the man that every woman wants. Nothing comes easy when it comes to being in the spotlight, no one could have prepared her for just how much her life was going to change just by being with Brayden. It would be through obstacles to test what they truly want and to see if she is ready for the life that comes with being famous.

I throughly enjoyed reading Say You’re Mine, it was sizzling from beginning to end. The character know what they want and their relationship progresses quickly in the book. Brayden is completely smitten with Isabelle, she is refreshing to him and he likes the fact that she is not like other women has has met in the past. She is sassy and their banters are sweet and hilarious. It’s when they decide to go public that things quickly change for them as they are scrutinize by the media and followed by the fans. It’s in one of those moments that they have to decide if they are willing to let all of that hurt their relationship or not. Although it’s told in dual POV, we get some really great secondary characters that make the story that much better. The ending was sweet, though I wish it would’ve had an epilogue, still it was great and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. I would highly recommend checking out this book if you love swoon worthy rock star romances! :)

My Rating: 4.5/5

My book boyfriends go with me everywhere. 

I prefer them tall, dark, and handsome, but I don’t discriminate. They sweep me off my feet, are always just my type, and are there for me whenever I need them—in my purse, in my car, and even in my bathtub. 
Book boyfriends may not be real, but at least they won’t break my heart… or get another girl pregnant. 
I don’t do messy and complicated. That’s why I can’t fall for Beckett. With his Clark Kent glasses, he’s a superhero in disguise. And his superpower? Melting panties with a single glance.

It took me seven years to mend my broken heart, and I’m not about to hand it over to any man without a fight. Especially a man like Beckett’s, a buttoned-up businessman with horrible taste in music. Even though his wicked charm, broody stares, and washboard abs are a tempting combination, I’ll never fall in love again.

The problem is, I don’t want Beckett between the pages—I want him between the sheets.

🌟 RELEASE BLITZ 🌟 The Boy Next Door by Jennifer Sucevic

The Boy Next Door by Jennifer Sucevic

Release Date: April 6th 2021 by Jennifer Sucevic
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

From USA Today bestselling author, Jennifer Sucevic, comes a sexy, new stand-alone novel. I’ve spent more years than I care to admit crushing hard on Colton Montgomery. The blond, blue-eyed hottie leaves a trail of broken hearts in his wake wherever he goes. Mine being one of them. Just when I’d decided to cut my losses and move on, he appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. It had all seemed like a fairytale until he dumped me.

Through text message, no less.


Eighteen months and one study abroad program later, I’ve returned to Wesley University to finish out my senior year.

And Colton?

He’s nothing more than a regrettable mistake I’d prefer to forget. Or so I tell myself. It only takes one run-in to realize that my feelings for him aren’t as dead and buried as I’d thought. Nope, they’re still there, simmering dangerously beneath the surface.

He wants a second chance to make things right.

That’s not going to happen.

But Colton has other ideas.

And part of me is afraid that if he actually puts his mind to it, he’ll end up changing mine.

*This is a mature New Adult novel with strong language and sexual situations intended for readers above the age of 18* 

Meet Jennifer Sucevic:

Jennifer is a USA Today bestselling author who has published seventeen New Adult and Mature Young Adult novels. Her novels have been translated into both German and Dutch.
