πŸ”– RELEASE BLAST πŸ”– Angel's Promise by Aleatha Romig {REVIEW}

Angel's Promise by Aleatha Romig

Release Date: June 29th 2021 by Romig Works
Pages: 400
Genres: Romance, Contemporary, Mafia

Everett Ramses came into my life like a hurricane on a dark New Orleans night. With a deep voice and penetrating gaze, his mere presence tingled my nerves and twisted my insides much like the city’s legendary stories of spirits and ghosts.

As the ruler of New Orleans, Everett Ramses lives life hard and takes what he wants without apology.

He wants me to be his queen.

I am not an unwilling capture or a damsel in distress.

No, I, Emma North, willingly fell for the man who proclaims himself the devil.

Do I follow through on the promise I made to Rett, or do I listen to my own instincts and run before it’s too late?

The future of New Orleans is now in my hands.

Have you been Aleatha'd?

*From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a new romantic suspense duet set in the dark and mysterious world of New Orleans. This full-length novel is the conclusion of the Devil’s Series Duet that begins with the prequel “Fate’s Demand”, continues in DEVIL’S DEAL, and concludes in ANGEL’S PROMISE.

My Review:

Angel’s Promise is the explosive conclusion to the Devil’s Duet by Aletha Romig that’s filled with twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end.

The story picks up right where it left off in Devil’s Deal with the arrival of Emma and Rett’s wedding day. Just when Emma thought that she could make things work with Rett, things are suddenly not what they seemed to be by the unexpected arrival of her brother. She is shocked to see that Kyle is very much alive and ready to make her question everything that Rett has been telling her all this time. In her heart she wants to believe that Rett has been telling her the truth, but she doesn’t really know if he is. There are so many unanswered questions, but it’s when Rett starts to open up to her that Emma feels that they can finally have a chance at being together after all. Little did she know that their blissful time together wasn’t going to last long when and that they would have to face the ultimate obstacle in order to be together.

I throughly enjoyed reading Angel’s Promise, Romig did a great job setting up the scene for the story in Devil’s Deal that it made this book that much more engaging to read. In this book we get to see what happens are their deal is made and the consequences that follow. There is still so much that Emma doesn’t know, but she wants to make her own decisions even if she has to make another deal with Rett. Rett in this book starts to realize that he has met his match and he slowly tells Emma about the business he runs. It’s important for her to understand what he has to deal with and she proves to be a lot stronger than he thought. But they have to face new obstacles and that’s going to test their trust for each other. The ending felt a bit rushed to me, but the epilogues really made the book that much better. All in all, I would highly recommend checking out the Devil’s Duet. If you are looking for a suspenseful romance set in New Orleans filled with irresistible chemistry and mystery than this is the right duet for you! :)

πŸ”– BLOG TOUR πŸ”– Mafia King by C.D. Reiss {REVIEW}

Mafia King by C.D. Reiss

Release Date: June 15th 2021 by Paige Press LLC
Genres: Romance, Contemporary, Mafia

Santino is my king. My lover. My husband.

He’s the head of the Cavallo crime family and the moment he choked my vows from me, my life was bound to his.

I’m done fighting my fate, until I hear two rumors, and I’m shaken to the core.

One rumor about the past—that I wasn’t the first bride Santino took.

Another about the future—a new bride is about to be taken.

Changing the old ways is like dousing the flames of hell with tears.

But I married the devil himself, and when I vowed to obey, I lied.

Book two of three in the The Dilustro Arrangement.

My Review:

Mafia King is the second book in the DiLustro Trilogy, full of shocking twists to leave you hooked from beginning to end.

The story picks up right after it left off in Mafia Bride with Violetta finding out that she might not have been meant for Santino from the start. It’s been weeks since she has learned the truth and she cannot look at her husband without thinking of the possibility that he could be hiding other things from her as well. She can’t believe that she was just a nursing student not that long ago, with a life of her own. Nevertheless, Violetta had no idea that she would end up married to the most powerful mobster in Second Vasto. But now that she knows that her sister was involved with Santino, she wants to know what truly happened to her. Santino took her sister away from her and now Violetta is ready to make him pay and watch him struggle. Yet, there are a lot more things to the story that Santino is not telling her and finding out the truth could change their future forever.

C.D. Reiss delivers an action packed story filled with an emotional rollercoaster between Santino DiLustro and Violetta. In Mafia Bride we get to see the characters go through a series of obstacles as secrets are fully revealed, putting their relationship at risk. Santino promised to protect Violetta, but she still struggles to accept the way his people make deals and it puts her at constant risk. He never expected to fall for her the way he did and it’s when he finally tells her the actual truth that she starts to see him in a new light. But the shocking twist at the end has me wanting to read the third book asap! The books just keep getting better and I cannot wait to read the final book in the trilogy, Mafia Queen.:)

**I received an advanced copy from the publisher. All opinions are my own.**

My Rating: 4.5/5

πŸ”– RELEASE BLAST πŸ”– Tell Me I'm Yours by J.S. Scott {REVIEW}

Tell Me I'm Yours by J.S. Scott 

Release Date: June 15th 2021 by Golden Unicorn Enterprises, Inc.
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

Is there more to the spoiled, entitled, British billionaire man-whore than what I see on the surface?

I really want to hate Dylan Lancaster.

He hurt my best friend, and nearly destroyed her relationship with his identical twin brother. So, I decide that someone needs to rein him in so he doesn't try to demolish the couple completely before their wedding takes place. Unfortunately, the only woman who would try to take on that impossible task

It's only six weeks, right? Surely I can tolerate the womanizing, obnoxious jerk and keep him out of trouble so that no more of his scandals hit the media before his brother's wedding. I'm a public relations crisis manager. Squashing bad press is what I do, and I do it extremely well for my high profile clients.

What I don't count on is actually starting to like the glimpses of the real Dylan I begin to see underneath all of his cynicism. Nor did I ever imagine that I'd become so attracted to him that I could barely breathe every time he gets close to me. 

Dylan is a man who has suffered profound emotional pain. I can sense it. I can feel it. The question is: Can I possibly reach the real Dylan Lancaster before it's too late?

Note: This is an enemies to friends to lovers British billionaire romance with an American heroine. I'd recommend reading Damian's story first in Tell Me You're Mine, Book 1 of The British Billionaires to enhance your reading pleasure. 

My Review:

What’s not to love about a hot British guy with an even hotter accent and the biggest heart? J.S. Scott delivers a raw and emotional enemies-to-friends-to-lovers romance, about new beginnings that will grab you and never let go.

At the beginning of the story we get to meet Kylie Hart, a public relations crisis manager who is ready to use her skills for a good cause. She is in Beverly Hills on a mission to make sure that Dylan Lancaster cleans up his act after nearly destroying her best friend’s relationship with his identical twin brother. Nicole and Damian Lancaster are getting married in six weeks and she has until then to make sure that Dylan stays out of trouble.

Kylie has heard a lot about Dylan and what he has done over the past two years as his brother tried to cover his indiscretions. To her he is a spoiled billionaire womanizer who is obnoxious and treats women as if their only purpose is for sex. It’s when she meets him for the first time that she knows that she is in trouble. Dylan is not only good looking but challenges her at every turn. He is magnetic and underneath the persona he portrays is someone who has been hurt deeply in the past. Kylie never expected to feel a pull towards him right away, but the longer she spends with him, the more she is starting to understand how much they have in common. Yet, there are no promises of what is going to happen after the wedding and she fears that one of them is going to end getting hurt if they give in to their emotions.

Dylan Lancaster never expected to have a fiery redhead at his doorstep demanding to be let in as she is set on keeping him out of trouble. He is not happy to have her move in with her dog and invade his space. He has been working really hard to improve himself after what happened in England, when he almost ended his brother’s relationship with Nicole. Dylan is deeply sorry for all the trouble that he has caused his family, but they don’t know the really story of what happened to him two years ago and he wasn’t expecting to connect with Kylie the way he did. She is a ray of sunshine who doesn’t back down and her positivity to how she sees life has him want to do the same. It’s when she shares her own past struggles that a part of him wants to protect her no matter and be there for her even after his brother’s wedding is over. It’s clear that they both have such a strong connection with each other, but his past might end up hurting his future and he has to make sure Kylie sees that he has changed before it’s too late.

I absolutely loved reading Tell Me I’m Yours, it was such a great story to read from beginning to end. J.S. Scott does a very good job bringing the reader into the characters’ journey as they go through ups and downs in their relationship. Not only is the story relatable, but it’s also the shocking secrets that had me at the edge of my seat. Although we get to see the character’s constant banter at the beginning, they slowly open up to each other and find out how much they have in common. Although Kylie and Dylan are the focus of this story, we also get to continue Nicole and Damien’s story from their POV. So it’s best to read the first book, Tell Me You’re Mine, to get the full effect. While the story is emotional at it’s core, we also get a lot of steamy scenes and swoon worthy moments between the characters that will leave you rooting for them until the very end. The ending was sweet and I cannot wait to read what the author comes up with next. I would highly recommend checking out this series, you will not regret it! :)

πŸ”– BLOG TOUR πŸ”– The Virgin Game Plan by Lauren Blakely {REVIEW}

The Virgin Game Plan by Lauren Blakely

Release Date: June 9th 2021 by Little Dog Press
Genres: Romance, Contemporary, Sports

A sexy standalone forbidden sports romance from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely!

The woman I want is as off-limits as they come.

I had an excuse two years ago when I met her on campus. She interviewed me for a story on major league baseball's rising stars, and we shared a hot, passionate night that ended far too soon, and without a mention of who her father was. 

Now I know the innocent but sexy woman I can’t stop thinking about is the coach's daughter.

That means her dad is the guy who determines if I bat fourth in the starting lineup in every game, or ride the bench.

All the more reason to resist alluring, confident, brainy Reese every time I run into the reporter-turned-sports publicist.

That ought to be easy enough, until the time she confesses she's still carrying her V card, and she’s been wanting me to cash it in since the day we met.

Staying away from her is going to be harder than resisting a fastball down the middle.

Especially since I'm pretty sure she's the one who got away, and letting her slip through my fingers again would be a rookie mistake.

My Review:

Lauren Blakely delivers a swoon worthy second chance sports romance in The Virgin Game Plan that will leave you rooting for the characters until the very end.

The story starts off with Reese Fallon scoring an interview with major league baseball rising star, Holden Kingsley. As a university student, she hopes that her podcast will open new opportunities for her in sports marketing when she graduates. But what Reese wants the most is to make a name for herself, to have her own reputation and do her own thing where she is not just her father’s daughter. So when Reese nabs the interview with the second baseman for the LA Bandits, she is excited to meet him.

It’s when she does and sees how charming he is that she wishes they didn’t have to part ways. He happens to feel the same and they both share a passionate night that ended too soon. Until she gets a job opportunity of a life time that Reese is ready to say goodbye to Holden without realizing that their paths were going to cross again in the future. Now they have the opportunity to pick up where they left off, yet there are new obstacles in the horizon that they both need to face in order to have a future together.

Holden Kingsley’s life revolves around being prepared and always having a plan. When he gets an email about a possible interview, Holden agrees right away. He has worked really hard to get to where he is and his career is looking very promising. His focus is on his career, but when he sees Reese Fallon for the first time, he is immediately taken aback by her beauty. She is smart, confident and loves sports. They have so much in common that he doesn’t want to walk away from her and for once lets go of his plans in order to be with her. But just when he thought that he could make things work with her, she gets a job opportunity and they part ways. It’s when he sees her again that he vows to make her his and never let go of her again. Until he finds out who her dad really is and how that might affect a possible relationship going forward. 

I throughly enjoyed reading The Virgin Game Plan, Lauren Blakely delivers an instanlove sports romance story that had me reading until the very end. The characters were relatable and their chemistry was sizzling. It’s clear from the start that they have a strong connection that neither of them want to leave the other. They understand each other very well and this makes Holden think that maybe they can work things out. Until they have to go their separate ways and they don’t see again until years later. They are very family orientated, but there are things that Holden doesn’t know about Reese that she fears of how he is going to look at her once he finds out. They both fear of how the public is going to take the news of their relationship and they have to figure out if it’s worth fighting for it or not. All in all, if you like a good sports romance filled with sweet and steamy scenes then I would highly recommend checking out The Virgin Game Plan, the ending truly comes full circle! :)

πŸ”– REVIEW BLITZ πŸ”– The Enemy Trap by Maren Moore {GIVEAWAY!}

The Enemy Trap by Maren Moore 

Release Date: June 4th 2021
Genres: Romance, Contemporary, Sports

Hayes Davis is America’s sweetheart, the #1 hockey player in the country, and my fake fiancΓ©.

Simple, right? It would be, if my betrothed were anyone else.

But it turns out America’s sweetheart is arrogant, selfish, and a guy I have no intentions of letting break my heart again.

It was never supposed to happen.

But then one night changes everything.

Now, he’s not only my pretend fiancΓ© but my very real baby daddy.

How can two people who hate each other pull off the lie of a lifetime while figuring out how to raise a child together?

Everything between us was supposed to be fake, but I’m not pretending anymore.

My Review:

The Enemy Trap by Maren Moore is a witty and highly entertaining enemies-to-lovers sports romance filled with swoon worthy moments to keep you wanting for more.

At the beginning of the story we get to meet Sophia St. James, who is celebrating her 30th birthday, unemployed and single. Having been through a recent break up, Sophia feels stuck and doesn’t know what to do. Then she sees a gossip magazine with yet another scandal involving her enemy, Hayes Davis. No matter how much she dislikes him, their best friends are married to each other and they will always be in the same circles. So bumping into him at their goddaughter’s birthday party shouldn’t have surprised her, but she can’t help to notice how insanely attractive he is no matter how much he annoys her.

What Sophia wasn’t expecting was to be stranded in the middle of the ocean with Hayes Davis. They both could have stayed away from each other, but being at close proximity to him only unleashed what they’ve always had for one another, an attraction so powerful that neither one of them was able to deny. Now they have to face the curveball that neither was expecting to get and learn to get along if they are going to be in each other’s lives for the foreseeable future.

Hayes Davis is not just a professional hockey player, but also Hollywood’s Most Eligible Bachelor whose looks and wealth can get him any woman he could possibly want. But he enjoys his bachelor life way to much to settle down, that often causes him to be wrapped up in scandals that he cannot have if he wants to continue with his professional career as a hockey player. Hayes is back home to be surrounded by his family and friends, yet he wasn’t expecting to find himself attracted to the same woman that has hated him for the last ten years. Sophia St. James is smart, sassy and beautiful. But when they find out that she is pregnant, he fears that his career is over and his agent suggests that they pretend to be engaged. Yet, the more time they spend together, the more he wants to make things work with her for good. Until his past comes back to ruin what he has with her and he has to find a way to make Sophia see that they are meant to be.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Enemy Trap, it was truly an entertaining read. I loved the banter between Hayes and Sophia, mixed with the attraction for one another makes for a truly explosive romance. We get to see them get to know each other more, especially Hayes, he shows his sweater side when he is with Sophia. She soon realizes that she might have judged him based on what she has already read in magazines and we also find out what truly happened to make her hate him so much. While the story is great with the main characters, their best friends also play a huge role in the book and made so much better. All in all, the story was such a great read and the ending will leave you swooning and rooting for the characters. I would highly recommend checking it out, I cannot wait to read more from the author in the future. :)
