Centre of Gravity review and release blitz, K.K. Allen

I really liked this book. It’s been a while since I’ve read a dancer book and this one quenched the thirst.
Lex is a cute character, naive but not annoyingly like it can come across as.
Theo is a little dark, a little troubled, and a lot closed off but I like it. 
Together they’re a great couple.
I will say the storyline is a bit predictable, but again, not to an annoying point. 

This is a great, light read where you can lose yourself for just a little bit. Give it a go, it’s worth your time! 📖📖📖📖

 

Center of Gravity, an all-new standalone emotional, Forbidden Sports Romance by K.K. Allen is AVAILABLE NOW!

 

Synopsis

Lex I came to L.A. with dreams bigger than me. To learn from the best choreographers in the business and secure a professional dance gig working for Hollywood’s elite. Everything was going according to plan—until I was literally shoved into the arms of the one man who could make or break my career. Come to find out, it wasn’t my career I had to worry about. It was my heart.
Theo Everything about Alexandra “Lex” Quinn screamed amateur, save for the way she moved across the dance floor. She was athleticism and grace, precision and passion, and she had a stage presence I couldn’t tear my eyes from. I wanted her...on my team, in my bed. There was only one problem... I couldn’t have both.

Wild cover reveal, Laramie Briscoe

Title: Wild
Series: Heaven Hill Generations #2
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: T.E. Black Designs
Release Date: October 5, 2018



Blurb

He was my salvation.

Addalyn “Addie” Blackfoot

I was somewhere I shouldn’t have been, doing something I shouldn’t have been doing. As Tyler Blackfoot’s daughter, I know better. There are expectations to being who I am, but I’ve never fully lived up to them.

Adoption.

It’s supposed to be the answer to prayers – both for the parents and the child. Me? I’ve always felt a little out of place, like I couldn’t settle down, a flower blowing in the breeze, waiting to be uprooted.

Until the moment he stepped in front of me, taking the blade of the knife meant for me. I didn’t know his name, but the way he looked at me, it was like he knew all my secrets, but didn’t care. It was reckless and passionate, and I never thought of the consequences.

I figured after I got what I wanted from him, I could break it off and never see him again.

I was wrong…….


Wilder “Wild” Evans

She came into my life when I least expected it. Strong, fearless, and ready to take whatever the asshole holding the knife was going to dish out.

For months after, I couldn’t get enough of her. Her joy in life, the way her eyes lit up when she saw me, and the smile that popped dimples in her cheeks when she wasn’t paying attention. She calmed every part of a man who’d never had steady and I craved it.

Then it was gone. She became a different person, left without a trace, and ignored my texts.

Fate intervened, and I found her again.

I got my calm...

She got her wild...

KRBlockShotBookCover5x8_MEDIUM.jpg

JARED

If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat...

The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.

Her anger is...arousing.

Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth,

gets me...well, you know.

If I had a dollar for every time she's put me in my place, I'd be an even richer man.

I'm a successful sports agent because I assume "no" means you'll think about it.

I'm sure what you meant to say is "Coming right up.”

They say even rich men don't always get what they want,

but those men don't know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.

Take Banner. She assumes she's winning, but this game?

She doesn't even know how to play.

BANNER

If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.

One night. One epic fail. One dollar...and I'm out.

I've moved on.

I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.

Anything they can do, I have done better.

They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.

And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?

Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.

I'll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.

Oh, I didn't say the struggle wasn't real.

But I've got that one dollar, and Jared won't have me.

Excerpt:

I stretch my arm toward the wall and turn out the lights. With the light snuffed out, my other senses rise, hunting for her in the dark. The smell of her hair and her quick, shallow breaths. My sight adjusts until the heavy black curtain completely obscuring her fades to gray. Light from the outer room spills under the door, revealing just the shape, the outline of her, but still camouflaging details. I cup her cheek, taking a moment to appreciate the softness of her skin, the silky hair brushing my knuckles. I’m not an idiot. She wants the lights out because she’s self-conscious, but from my perspective, she has nothing to be ashamed of. “I think you’re beautiful, Ban.” “You do?” she asks, her voice hushed. My words surprise me as much as they seem to surprise her, because I don’t say shit like that to girls. The prettiest ones usually seem to already know, which makes any admiration I’d express redundant. But Banner . . . she’s so beautiful, and I’m not sure she knows. “I do.” I push the hair away from her face. “Uh . . . thank you.” Her laugh isn’t much more than a breath. “The lights are out, so I’m not sure that compliment counts.” “I know your face by heart. You have seven freckles here.” I swipe a finger over the straight bridge of her nose and drift down to caress her full lips and the tiny dent in her cheek her smile displays. “And a dimple right here.” I explore the smooth skin of her nape, under a heavy fall of hair. “Now I want to know your body, too,” I say softly. “Take off your clothes for me, Banner.” After a sharply indrawn breath, she raises her arms. The rustle of her clothes—the sweatshirt, jeans, socks, shoes—being discarded whisper in the dark. I approximate her by touch, reaching for her arms and closing my fingers around the softness, the velvety skin. I lower my head and run my nose along her neck, discovering. “You always smell so good.” I’ve wanted to tell her that since the first night we studied here. “Pretty Pastel,” she replies, her laugh low, nervous. “What?” I pause. “The smell. It’s my dryer sheets. The scent is Pretty Pastel.” “I like it.” I resume my exploration, running a palm over her shoulder, her collarbone until I find the soft, full weight of her breasts, testing them in my hands, cupping them, holding them, brushing the nipples with my thumbs until they pebble and her breaths come harshly. “You like that?” I ask. I see her head nod in the semi-darkness. “Yeah. It feels good.” Her touch startles me in the best way, her hand finding my face, traveling over my mouth, eyes, and hair. I sense her approach, feel tiny pants of breath on my lips, and anticipation has me panting, too, shortens my breath and sharpens my senses. Her mouth seeks mine, eager and sweet when she kisses me. Her pleasure, her excitement matches, answers, fans mine. I guide her back down to the couch, and with a hand at her shoulder, urge her to stretch out. I’d shave points off my GPA for a glimpse of her, but she doesn’t want that. I get it, so I settle for a taste.

Yesterday is gone review and release blitz, HJ Bellus

I loved this book. It was sweet, it was angsty, it was dramatic.
Whit was an absolute shining star.
Jesse was so hot!
This was a great second chance story. One thing I would’ve liked however, is a bit more detail at the start. I would’ve liked to have seen Jesse and Jules when they were high school students, and also maybe what happened after graduation.
I also found the events after the grocery store a little confusing and Jules’s attitudes so quick to change, without much justification.
Still, this was a great book. I enjoyed it and I think you will too! 📖📖📖📖📔


Title: Yesterday Is Gone
Author: HJ Bellus
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 11, 2018 Publisher: Limitless Publishing

They say going home is easy, and in all reality, it should be. Just not for me.
The small, one-horse town that gave me my roots, that made my soul thrive, is also the
place I never wanted to set foot in again. I left everything behind and never looked back.
Until now. With the death of the man who raised me, I’m forced to return to Boone.
Old wounds resurface, and heartache and loss trump everything once more.
Seeing the man who shattered my world the night of our high school graduation almost
brings me to my knees. Jessie, my once best friend and love of my life, ruined it all for
me…for us.
I’m back in Boone…and my secret is about to rattle the tiny town.


HJ Bellus is a small-town girl who loves the art of storytelling. When not making readers laugh or cry, she's a part-time livestock wrangler that can be found in the middle of Idaho, shot gunning a beer while listening to some Miranda Lambert on her Beats and rocking out in her boots.

Block shot review and release blitz, Kennedy Ryan




I really liked this book. I liked how unabashedly honest Jared was. I like how he was unapologetic for who he is and how he went about things. I think he was really the core of this book and that makes it great. 
Don’t get me wrong, Banner is incredible, someone every woman should aspire to be, but I think Jared was the shining light here.
He’s tough, he’s honest, he’s an arsehole, but he is devoted to Banner and I loved that.

This is a great addition to the Hoops series and I can’t wait to read the next one.

The tenth girl review and release blitz, Carrie Aarons

This was a sweet book. It’s by no means an original storyline, we know how it goes, guy makes a bet, girl becomes object of said bet, they fall in love, she finds out etc etc.
I have to say that Cain was a character I liked a lot. He was horrible at the start but then you get to know him and he’s surprising.
I liked Harper, but for all her bravado I thought she gave into Cain way too quickly. I would’ve liked to have seen more interplay between them, really build up that enemies to lovers feelings.

Overall this was a solid book. It hasn’t reinvented the wheel but that wasn’t the aim. If you like this sort of books you’ll like this one. 📖📖📖📖


Title: The Tenth Girl
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: New Adult/Young Adult
Release Date: September 9, 2018



Blurb

Never play a game you can't win.

For Cain Kent, that rule is golden. Losing is not in his vocabulary, and up until now, everything has come easy. Football, school, girls ... his charm-laced ego may just be bigger than Texas itself.

The competition he started freshman year with his friends, to make ten notches each in their bedposts by graduation day, is practically in the bag. One more to go, and then it's off to college fame and eventually, the big time. Attachments aren't something he wants to form, but when the quiet new girl challenges him in front of his classmates, his curiosity is peaked. She would be the perfect final score, and what fun to break her in the process.

Too bad Harper Posy has no intention of being just another warm body, especially to the bad boy quarterback. Even if he does quote Forster and Huxley when no one is listening. An aspiring author herself, Cain and his hidden soft side are dangerous to her heart. She's seen men ruin her mother's dreams time and again, and she's determined to fly far away as soon as she has that diploma in her fist.

But as the school year’s end looms closer, both realize they didn’t quite understand the rules to begin with. Is winning a dirty bet worth the gamble when the stakes, or the other’s heart in this case, are so high?

Harper is the one girl who isn't up for playing games. And she just might make Cain lose. Everything.

California is everything Eleanora thought it would be, and even more so when she meets Quinn, the shy, reserved and brooding musician who’s the complete opposite of the guys she’s used to back home. 
For the first time, Quinn’s smitten. The new, mysterious waitress has him wrapped around her finger, and he finds that he is finally able to open up and trust someone outside of his family circle. 
But living a different life comes with its risks, and for Eleanora, that risk is a secret that has the power to destroy both of them.
