๐Ÿ”– BLOG TOUR ๐Ÿ”– Last Resort by Amelia Wilde {REVIEW}



Last Resort by Amelia Wilde 

Release Date: March 22nd 2022
Genres: Dark, Romance, Contemporary

Emerson LeBlanc lost more than an acquisition. He lost the woman he loves.

There’s no redemption for a man with his past. No future for a relationship built on stalking and kidnapping. At least that’s what he believes. When he meets Daphne again, she’s not a piece of art. She’s a woman determined to paint a new path. For herself. For him. Except the ocean holds more than shadows. It holds danger that could ruin them both.


PRAISE FOR THE COLLECTOR TRILOGY:

"An exquisite portrait of obsession that grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go." - #1 NYT bestselling author Laurelin Paige

"Vivid, seductive, highly-addictive. This steamy thrill ride is a masterpiece. Amelia Wilde's words are hypnotic and I'm dying to devour more of them!" - K Webster, USA Today bestselling author

"Emerson Leblanc is an ocean I happily drowned in, and I can't wait to do it again." - USA Today bestselling author Stella Gray



My Review:

Wilde concludes The Collector Trilogy with a captivating, page-turning and explosive romance in Last Resort. A must-read trilogy!

It’s an unexpected turn of events that forces Daphne Morelli to part ways with the enigmatic art collector, Emerson LeBlanc. After he kidnaps her to add her to his personal collection, it becomes Daphne’s goal to escape at any rate. However, things quickly begin to change as she starts to see a different side to Emerson that only she can relate to. Emerson’s world has turned a different color when he is with Daphne. Yet, no matter how hard he wants her to find someone better for her. It becomes clear that Daphne is not about to let him walk away. But just as they are about to give themselves a chance at a forever, someone closer to Emerson threatens to separate them again. This time Emerson is ready to give whatever it takes to get back the love of his life, before it’s too late.

I truly enjoyed reading Last Resort! The book itself felt stronger than the last two books, where we were slowly getting to know the characters and their intentions. Now the story felt a lot less dark, there is more action and sweeter moments between Daphne and Emerson. There is also a lot more depth in the story as we get to find out more about their families as well and how they might be just similar in a lot of ways. Daphne’s view of her dad changes and there is finally an understanding between at the end. The ending was everything! It worked really well in the story and with the characters. It was a sweet ending and I couldn’t recommend this book enough. :)

๐ŸŒŸ BOOK BLITZ ๐ŸŒŸ Seduction in Blood by Kim Allred {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}




Seduction in Blood by Kim Allred

Release Date: March 22nd 2022 by Storm Coast Publishing
Pages: 282
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

A thief. A vamp. A walk on the wild side.

Cressa Langtry escaped an abusive home to live on her own terms. Now she’s known as Pandora, the best cat burglar and safecracker on the West Coast. Hounded by bounty hunters, one successful job would go a long way in clearing what she owes.

With an unfortunate twist of fate, Cressa’s debt is turned over to the city’s most notorious and ancient vampire – Devon Trelane. Complete one mission and she can leave the vampire world, and his home, free and clear.

Devon has lived a long life—many of them excommunicated from the Vampire Council. Though still a successful businessman, he can’t forgive the one vampire that cost him his seat on the Council.

Unrest builds between the vampires and shifters, discontent that could be avoided if the Council would see reason. One vampire stokes the fires of division, the one who forced Devon from the Council through lies and deception. The one person who holds the secrets that could return Devon to a seat of power and stop the war that threatens.

Luckily, a thief has fallen into Devon’s lap. A woman with the skills he requires to take down his greatest enemy.

There’s only one hitch—a simple business arrangement is complicated when their dreams collide and engulf them in passion.

THIS IS A CONTINUING slow-burn romance series.




{EXCERPT}

“This particular job will put you in the heart of vampire society. High society. You’ll be mingling with the city’s most respected and most dangerous vampires. To fit in, you’ll need to have a particular look with discerning tastes. And you’ll need to eat what vampires eat.”

I sat back, the grease of my breakfast threatening to revolt.

He laughed. “I’m not asking you to drink blood wine. But I do expect you to eat nutritious, organic meals. Besides excellent hearing, we have a unique sense of smell.” He tapped his nose. “We can smell someone’s blood when they get close. We can tell its purity and the contents of their last meal. For example, if I were to meet with you in two hours, I’d know you had garlic and onion in your meal. It wouldn’t stop me from drinking your blood if I had a mind, but that very scent would tell another vampire that you probably don’t belong to anyone. I’m far too old to worry about having to drink very often, so I don’t keep humans in the house. But younger vampires require a drink more frequently. Even those a century old still keep humans close for feeding.” He shrugged. “They don’t need to; they just prefer the old ways.” He shook his head as if he found that disgusting. Perhaps just uncouth. Either way, it made me feel a little better. I shouldn’t have to worry about him sneaking into my room in the middle of the night looking for a sip. I reflexively rubbed my neck.

He glanced down when his phone vibrated. His jaw clenched, and he held his cup so tightly, I thought it would shatter. Not good news. After a couple long minutes, he took a deep breath and turned to me, returning to our conversation as if never reading his message.

“My point is, where we’ll be going, you’ll need to not only act the part but smell the part as well. Otherwise, no one will believe why you’re with me.”

He stood. “I’m afraid I have something to attend to. Anna will start your training this morning. I should be back this evening for our session. A couple of rules for your stay here. You have the freedom of the yard, garden, and anywhere in the house on the first and second floors. The third floor is completely off-limits. Any questions before I leave?”

I had a dozen, but it was obvious I wouldn’t have his full attention. And I preferred trying to get answers from Anna. “Just one.”

He tucked the phone in his pocket then gave me his undivided attention.

“What am I being trained for?”

He gave me a slow perusal, and this time, it was more heated. The desire to squirm returned. Then, he gave me that million-dollar smile. “To be my human lover, of course.”

๐Ÿ”– REVIEW BLITZ ๐Ÿ”– Wright that Got Away by K.A. Linde



Wright that Got Away by K.A. Linde

Release Date: March 22nd 2022 by K.A. Linde Inc.
Series: Wright #11
Pages: 368
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

A sexy second chance rockstar romance set in the world of the Wrights about Campbell & Blaire from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

Campbell Abbey is the lead singer of the biggest band in the universe right now.

He’s also the boy I fell in love with in high school when no one knew my name.

Now, I have a million followers, teach girls every day how to love themselves and get over that boy that wronged them.

If only I could take my own advice…and not still pine for the Wright that got away




My Review:

What happens when the number one song in the world is about you? K.A. Linde is back with her eleventh book in the Wright Series with the Wright that Got Away. This incredibly emotional and steamy second chance rockstar romance that will leave you rooting for the characters until the very end.

It’s one thing for Blaire’s friends to fan over the lead singer of the band Cosmere and it’s another for them to go wild for the song, “I See the Real You.” What they don’t know is that Campbell Abbey wrote that song abut her and now is the most popular song around. Yet, no matter how much Blaire tries to avoid the song, it keeps following her around just like the memories of them in high school still haunt her until this day. She was in love with Campbell before he broke her heart and left in order to pursue his dreams not knowing what he was leaving behind.

It’s eight years later and Blaire has done well for herself. As the face behind a popular wellness blog, Blaire Blush, Blaire has being able to gain a big following by sharing relationship advice, body positivity and by helping girls love themselves. As an influencer, it’s important to be on top of what’s trending and soon dancing with Campbell’s popular song is what everyone expects her to do. Blaire refuses at first, until she sees that Campbell is back in town and wants to see her. It would take for them to make a video together to go viral for her to be thrust into his world yet again. This time there are different expectations until her new past becomes public that could damage a shot at a future together.

For Campbell Abbey being the lead singer of one of the most popular bands around comes with its own ups and downs. He has the fame, looks and wealth to attract any woman he could possibly want. But no matter how long it’s been since he was with Blaire, Campbell still can’t erase her from his mind. His most popular songs are about her and what they once shared back in high school. It’s been a while since he has been back to his hometown of Lubbock, Texas and Campbell is ready to reconnect with his family and friends again.

Yet, his record label wants him back in LA to start working on his next album. After the not so great critical reviews on his last album, Campbell needs inspiration again and he is given a month to start working on new material. Seeing Blaire again would soon change that and when creativity strikes, he isn’t sure how she is going to react to him writing a new song about her. Campbell is ready to show that he has changed and will not give up until Blaire is his again.

There is so much that happens in the story that I absolutely loved! The amount of sizzling chemistry between the characters from page one is what ultimately keeps bringing them together no matter how much Blaire tries to stay away from Campbell. He is proud of what Blaire has been able to accomplish as well. But with Blaire being an influencer on social media, she quickly realizes just how far Campbell’s fans can get to dig for information on her private life. His celebrity life is a lot bigger than she imagined it would be and that puts a lot of pressure on them right away. Although this story can be read as a standalone, it was nice to see characters from previous books in the series make appearances as well. There is a bit of action, unexpected twists and lots of tender scenes between them. The ending was sweet and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. I would highly recommend adding the Wright that Got Away to your TBR list. :D

๐Ÿ”– REVIEW ๐Ÿ”– Sweet Mercy by Amelia Wilde



Sweet Mercy by Amelia Wilde

Release Date: January 18th 2022
Genres: Dark, Romance, Contemporary

Daphne Morelli is trapped in a gilded cage.

She fought to escape her family, only to be caught by a billionaire. Possessive. Commanding. And determined to keep her.

Emerson LeBlanc wants to own the little painter. She's become more than his obsession. She's part of his collection now.

Except she's more perceptive than he'd like. Her artist's eye sees the shadows in him. She paints his pain on stretched canvas.

He's determined to own her. She's determined to escape.

In the end only one of them can truly be free. 



My Review:

The continuation to The Collector Trilogy by Amelia Wilde just keeps getting darker. Sweet Mercy is filled with twists and turns to keep you at the edge of your seat.

The story picks up right where it lefts off in Dark Reign, with Emerson tricking Daphne Morelli into trusting him. The minute he saw her, Emerson knew that he had to have her and that’s exactly what he does. Now Daphne is part of his collection, too valuable to be left out in the world and she couldn’t be more mad at him for keeping her prisoner in his own house. But no matter how much Daphne doesn’t want to paint for Emerson, she can’t go too long without painting. As the two start to spend more time together, Emerson starts to let Daphne into his world and she realizes that they might not be so different after all. As a Morelli, she doesn’t share what happens behind the scenes of her family. Yet, Emerson sees the painter that she is and not as a Morelli. Yet just as she is about to fully trust him, a turn of events threatens to change the course of their lives.

I enjoyed reading Sweet Mercy a lot more, we get to know the characters as they reveal their pasts and how that has made a huge impact on them. Emerson sees the world in a different way and it’s a way that only Daphne can really understand. She can sympathize with him and Emerson also becomes protective of her. There is a lot of chemistry and steamy scenes as well. We get a nice twist of events at the end that was bit sad, but I cannot wait to read the last book in the trilogy, Last Resort.

๐Ÿ”– REVIEW ๐Ÿ”– Dark Reign by Amelia Wilde



Dark Reign by Amelia Wilde

Release Date: November 9th 2021
Genres: Dark, Romance, Contemporary

Wealthy. Reclusive. Dangerous. Emerson LeBlanc doesn’t enter society much. He only ventures out in pursuit of new art for his collection. It starts with a haunting painting. Then he meets the artist...

Innocent Daphne Morelli is more exquisite than anything he’s ever seen. He becomes obsessed with her. It doesn’t matter that she’s a living, breathing person with her own hopes and dreams.

​​​​​​​She’ll be the perfect addition to his collection.

 

My Review:

Amelia Wilde delivers a unique romance in Dark Reign, the first book in The Collector Trilogy. This dark and twisted story its intriguing from beginning to end.

At the beginning we are introduced to Emerson LeBlanc, a wealthy and reclusive man who is always on the haunt for new art for his collection. He is known in the art world as “The Collector” and only attends private showings. It’s his impeccable eye for art that has paid off as his investments have increased in value. Yet, it’s one piece in particular that has moved him deeply and Emerson is ready to add it to his collection. But he wants to meet the artist and after doing his own research, Emerson finds out that he has seen her before. Daphne Morelli has captivated him and will do anything in his power to acquire her for his personal collection.

The Morelli name holds power in Bishop’s Landing, but Daphne’s family isn’t perfect. It’s full of secrets and constant rivalry with the Constantines. It’s hard to do things on her own when there is constant security watching her every move all to protect her safety. Yet, all Daphne wants is to make her own money and have her own life. So when she finds out that one of her paintings sold for a lot more money than she was hoping to get, she is happy to meet The Collector. She is shocked to see that she has met him before. She is attracted to him and there is a pull between them that she can’t deny. But there is something about Emerson that makes her feel uneasy, the fact that he seems to know more about her than she realized. Daphne knows that she should stay away from Emerson, but the harder she tries it becomes difficult to not give in to him. Until he tells her that he won’t be letting her go as she is now his.

Dark Reign was such an interesting concept to read, the cover really captures Emerson really well. He is this wealthy man who seems to be untouched by anything. He can make or brake an artists’ career and he has set his eyes on one particular person. To him Daphne is not like the rest of her family, she is captivating and innocent. He is able to connect with her paintings and his obsession with her grows the more he finds out about her. I read Leo’s story (the Beast of Bishop’s Landing) and it was nice to see how their story overlapped in certain scenes. It’s told in dual POV, so we get to see and understand both of their perspectives. The ending was unexpected and twisted! It’s a cliffhanger that will leave you wanting to read the next book right away! :)

๐Ÿ”– REVIEW ๐Ÿ”– The Accidental Countess by Emma Hart




The Accidental Countess by Emma Hart

Release Date: March 8th 2022
Pages: 370
Genres: Romance, Contemporary, Humor

An earl and an artist walk into a bar, and the barman says—never mind. They’re in a church, and they’re married now. Oops.

My name is Evangeline Astley, and the only thing you need to know about me is that I never imagined this was how my life would go.
I was supposed to devote all my time to painting gorgeous things to eventually open my own art gallery. Instead, I spent it all trying to sell my art to save my parents’ hotel.
Cue the Earl of Anglesey and his not-so-stunning idea.
Matthew Bennett needs an heir to the earldom, but for an heir, he needs a wife. And I’m the one the extremely eligible bachelor has chosen. Except I’m just as marriage-phobic as he is, so naturally, I refused—until he gives me an offer that I couldn’t.
If I agreed to marry him, provide an heir, and divorce amicably in due course, he would save The Fox and Hound hotel that I love so much.
That, ladies and gents, is how I became the Countess of Anglesey.
The one thing I didn’t count on, however?
Falling in love with my husband. 



My Review:

Hart concludes The Aristocrat Diaries Series with The Accidental Countess, where an earl and an artist make an agreement that would ultimately change their lives forever. Filled sweet banter and laugh-out-loud moments, this romance will keep you reading until the very end.

For Evangeline Astley, there isn’t a single part of her that wants to get married. As an artist, she wants to someday be able to sell her own work. But instead, Eva is working at someone else’s art gallery in order to save her parents’ hotel. Until she meets Matthew Bennett, the Earl of Anglesey. It’s their instant connection that brings them together and the fact that neither of them want to be in a serious relationship. Yet, everything changes the minute Matthew asks Eva to marry him. He needs an heir to keep the family line going and for that he needs a wife to pretend to be in love with him.

At first, Eva can’t believe Matthew is asking her to do the very same things she doesn’t want to do and that’s to get married. There is nothing in it for her, until he makes her a deal that he’ll save her family’s hotel and she can have it once they get divorced in a few years. Eva doesn’t want to lose the one place she’s ever known so she accepts his offer. Little did she know how her live as the new countess in a place she’s never been to would change her life as well as her growing feelings for her husband.

As the Earl of Anglesey, Matthew Bennett is constantly under a lot of pressure to keep the earldom from dying out. He needs a legitimate male heir through marriage in order to keep the family line going. But choosing a wife is not easy, everyone has eyes on his wealth, title and place in society. If he has to get married, Matthew wants to do it with someone he trusts instead and that’s when Eva comes in. He very much enjoys spending time with her and he is willing to help her parents’ hotel if she gives him an heir. Yet, it’s after they get married that he starts to see just how perfect they are for each other. Eva understands him and he wants to do anything to make her happy. They weren’t supposed to fall in love with each other and he is afraid that she might not share the same feelings for him. Matthew is willing to prove to Eva that they can have a shot at a future together.

I’m a huge Emma Hart fan, she always delivers swoon worthy romances combined with her sense of humor that they’re hard to resist. We meet Eva and Matthew in previous books in the series and now they get to have their own chance at a HEA. They both know what they’re in for the minute they sign the contract that would bind them together as husband and wife. Eva knows that she needs to provide Matthew with an heir, but he doesn’t want to rush her into anything as she is getting used to her new life. As the new countess, Eva is still unsure about her future in Anglesey. Matthew is sweet to her, pays attention to her wants and she is touched by it. She has never been in love, but spending more time with him has her question her feelings for him. I loved their banter and their time together. We get to meet his own family and his grandmother is hilarious. I wish a few things could have been explained a little further, but the ending made up for it as it ended the series with on a sweet note. I would highly recommend checking out the book as well as the series. I cannot wait to read what Emma Hart comes up with next! :)

๐Ÿ”– REVIEW BLITZ ๐Ÿ”– The Score Keeper by Gina Azzi



The Score Keeper by Gina Azzi 

Relese Date: March 3rd 2022
Genres: Romance, Contemporary, Sports

Boston Hawks owner Scott Reland is my father’s biggest rival and the last man who should catch my eye. But when he does, I don’t look away.

We’ve circled each other for years, two outliers in a small club of NHL owners. We know the rules, manage similar pressures, and understand that this lifestyle — hockey over everything — isn’t for everyone.

Which is why I want out.

To prove to my father that I have a future beyond the New York Sharks, I score one for me and open a bakery in Boston, the city that reveres Scott.

It isn’t long until the dynamic and perceptive Hawk pursues me. And I’m entirely unprepared to be swept off my feet, cared for and supported after so many years on my own. Scott easily draws me back into the hockey life I thought I didn’t want.

But can our relationship survive the demands of this industry? Or will I always be keeping score, second to the game that dictates everything? 



My Review:

Azzi concludes her Boston Hawks Hockey Series with The Score Keeper. This steamy sports romance between two hockey powerhouses will leave you wanting for more.

At forty-four-years old, Scott Reland has successfully made a name for himself and for his team, the Boston Hawks. As the owner of the team, he has also accumulated a lot of wealth and the attention of women who have very high expectations. It’s his money all they see and that’s not something he is interested in at his age. For Scott hockey is his life, even though that wasn’t how he was raised at the beginning. But it grew to something else the minute he played in high school and never looked back. He longs to experience something deeper with someone else and he knows exactly who is right for him. Having met over the years, Scott has always had an eye for Noelle DiSanto. They both understand the world of hockey and even though her dad is his biggest rival, Scott still has a soft spot for Noelle. Yet, it’s her desire to distance herself from hockey after seeing how consuming it is that has him question if she’ll ever be truly part of his world. They are made for each other and he willing to do anything to prove that to her.

As the heiress to the New York Sharks franchise, Noelle DiSanto has grown up knowing that she will one day take over her dad’s hockey empire. But that’s not something that she wants. After chasing her dream and learning the art of patisserie, Noelle managed to open Primrose Sweets as her way of honoring the legacy that her mom left behind. While her dad was not trilled about it, she didn’t let that stop her from opening her first bakery. If anything it gave her the need to keep expanding to show her dad that her bakery can be successful. So when Noelle gets to decide where to open next, Boston comes up. That’s exactly where Scott Reland also resides. Her dad has never liked Scott, but he took her breath away the minute they met and is over the years that they develop a connection. Then everything changes when he offers her the opportunity to open up a pop-up shot at his arena and Noelle doesn’t know how her dad is going to react if he finds out. She has worked so hard to not be so involved when it comes to hockey, yet being in Scott’s world has her question what she truly wants.

I really enjoyed reading The Score Keeper! It felt more mature to me especially with Scott being older. He has been through so much and has made the Boston Hawks a very successful team from the ground up. He is protective over Noelle right away and he wants to show that his world is different from how she grew up. On the other hand, not having her mom with her has made it difficult of Noelle’s dad to understand that running a hockey team is not for her. Her dad has supported her in his way and it’s difficult for her to tell him what she truly wants without upsetting him. The chemistry is what completely did it for me, it’s instant and steamy! I loved the ending, it fit them very well. I do wish the author could have given us more insight on some details, but it still works out in the end. I would still highly recommend it. I cannot wait to read what other works Gina Azzi comes up with next! :)

๐Ÿ”– REVIEW BLITZ ๐Ÿ”– Only One Love by Natasha Madison



Only One Love by Natasha Madison

Release Date: March 1st 2022
Series: Only One #7
Genres: Romance, Contemporary, Sports

From USA TODAY bestselling author Natasha Madison comes a brand new standalone sports romance. The seventh installment of the Only One Series. A spin off from the Something So Series and This is Series

Wilson

I was the bad boy on and off the ice.
I loved it — owned it.
Hockey. Women. Money.
Until she came into the picture.
Now, all I want to do is be better.
I want to prove to myself I don’t have to be the guy everyone thinks I am.
She knocked down the walls I spent my whole life building.

Franny

My last name opened the doors, but proving I was worth the title of TV producer took all of my time.
He walked in with a chip on his shoulder.
I was happy to point out all his flaws.
Falling for him was inevitable.
When scandal hits, no one expected me to stand by his side.
Not even him.
But I’ve learned that you get only one love. 




My Review:

In her seventh installment of the Only One Series, Madison delivers a steamy and highly entertaining hockey romance in Only One Love, that will leave you rooting for the characters until the very end.

At the beginning we are introduced to Frances “Franny” Grant, who has just made the move from New York to Dallas to start a new job. Having come from a legendary family in the sports world, she always had to deal with people assuming that she can get ahead of anyone based on her family’s connections. Her love for creating content grew, especially after completing an internship at her grandfather’s media company. So when Franny is asked to move to Dallas in order to produce her own content, she accepts right away. Yet, Franny quickly realizes that she’s entered a men’s world and they are set in their ways that it’s hard to get them to see her side. But everything changes the minute she sees him again at the season opener’s after party, he doesn’t remember that they’ve met before or that they spend the night together. Franny is attracted to Wilson and wouldn’t mind spending more time with him. After all, she is not looking to start a relationship with anyone. It’s all just supposed to be about having fun together, until she starts to fall for the guy that she promised not to.

As the hockey player for the Dallas Oilers, Brad Wilson has the reputation of being the bad boy, always having women around at his beck and call. His temper is what gets him in trouble, especially when he is trying to protect his team or is provoked. So it’s no surprise when the team’s owner tells Wilson to be on his best behavior as he needs to show the people that he is more than just a bad boy on the ice. Until he sees a beautiful woman at an after party, she takes his breath away and wants to know who she is. Wilson is shocked to find out that they’ve already spent the night together and he is on getting to know Franny Great. But soon finds out that he has met his match with Franny, she is not afraid to ask for what she wants and that is him. Yet, he is afraid of what it’s going to happen to them after he gives in. It would take a turn of events to bring them closer than ever. Closer enough to make Wilson see that he is falling in love with Franny. He is not letting her go without a fight.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Only One Love, it was entertaining and swoon worthy. I loved Franny, she is bold and not afraid to speak her mind. She knows how to stand up for herself and we see that evolve in the book. While she is not looking to start a relationship, Franny still wants to have fun and she thinks that Wilson is right for her. Their chemistry is off the charts from the very start. They tease and flirt with each other non stop. She brings out a different version of him that he soon starts to like. They are similar in many ways, but more so when it come to being in love. They’ve never experience being in love and when they are start to develop feelings for each other, it scares them of what they outcome is going to be. The ending was sweet! It was thoughtful and touching. It made the story that much sweeter. I would highly recommend checking it as well as the rest of the series, you will not regret it. :)

Meet Natasha Madison:

When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...


Thanks for stopping by! ๐Ÿ“š
