She was meant to be mine.

Julianna Keller is sexy, wild, and carefree with a spark for life that sets my soul on fire.
We’re opposites in every way.
For one night, I allowed myself to imagine what being with a woman like her could be like.
But life goes on.
I returned to my life in the Marines—fighting wars, eliminating threats, and completing missions only a few knew about.
All the time, never forgetting her.

Three years later, we’re back in the same city, thrown together at every turn.
She’s so much more than I remember—brilliant, sophisticated, and still unbelievably gorgeous.
I fight to stay away, hiding my feelings and knowing she deserves so much more.
Then I see her with another man and my world explodes.
Years of training taught me to never let my guard down, but I’m done holding back.

She says it’s too late, our time has passed.
I’m prepared to prove her wrong.
She’s the chaos to my control.
The calm to my storm.
The light to my dark.

The harder she fights to push me away, the more determined I become.
Julianna Keller has no idea how far I’ll go.

My name is Major Powers. And I’ve never failed a mission.










Ahren spent her formative years living in an active volcano. There her family made collectible lava art. She studied rock collecting at the Sorbonne in France. There she met the love of her life-her pet pig Sybil. She returned to the states and started writing. She is happily married to a guy who used to live under a bridge and she met while pole-dancing.

Now, meet the real me. I grew up in the south and consider myself a true “Southerner”. Most of the special locations mentioned in my books are reflections of my favorite places. Living on the Florida coast, my family spends a lot time at the beach, which is where I usually can be found with a book in my hand.

Stay over review and release blitz, Kaylee Ryan

 This was a strange book for me. It’s slated as book one in the Kincaid brothers series, which I guess it is, but it strongly builds on never with me, which I haven’t read and assumed I didn’t need to. I’m guessing, purely by how confused I was with all the characters, that you need to.


To begin with, you get thrown into the deep end of characters. I had no idea who was who and it was very confusing. And to be honest, it stayed confusing throughout the book. I’m still not sure if all 9 brothers were mentioned. Yes, 9. Then you have cousins, and brothers, and friends who are also someone’s cousin but I’m still not sure how that works.


But to the story. I used to be a massive kaylee fan. I had read everything she had written and loved them.

But all her men started to roll into one. Brooks is cut from the same cloth.

The perfect man with the perfect family. Literally there is nothing wrong with anyone in this book. I’m not for angst for the sale of angst, but I do appreciate things to be a little more true to life.


I also wondered about Brooks and Palmer. Why was it *that* particular moment that he felt something for her. I think she’s been around him and his friends and family for a while, so why is this a new thing? Had they never spoken before? Never interacted? But they knew each other, so why now?


Also, this is a small thing. Some of the things Blakely says are weird. I get they’re trying to be cute, but I found them almost wrong and trying too hard.


To be honest, this book isn’t bad. It’s fine. But kind of one note. I had hoped there would be something to get me going, but unfortunately I didn’t find it.

📖📖📖📚


Stay Over by Kaylee Ryan is now live!



Brooks

Overhearing my cousin's best friend confessing that she's never been satisfied wasn't my fault... but offering to help her change that definitely was. Her brother is a friend of mine, and while this has a bad idea written all over it, it doesn't stop us from becoming friends... with benefits. 

Palmer is gorgeous, off-limits, and stubborn as hell. For the first time, I'm the one left wanting more. 

I'm tired of watching her walk away. I'm ready for her to stay. 

Palmer

I never dreamed having my crush overhear my most embarrassing confession would land me in his bed... or that I would want to stay there. 

But our secret relationship has rules. No strings. No expectations. No feelings. What's that saying about rules? Oh yeah, they're meant to be broken. 

But when it comes to Brooks, I'm afraid if I'm not the one to walk away, it won't be just the rules broken.

Rebel review and release Blitz, Ginger Scott

 I quite enjoyed this book!

I love that it was a character that probably, normally would’ve missed out on a story arc, but here he has his chance.

Cam is a great character, very multi faceted and multi layered. I really enjoyed getting to know him.

Brooklyn was interesting as well. I do think a little more could’ve been done to make her pop a little more, but she was solid.

I liked the way this story progressed, but do wish there was a little more romantic build up.

I also wish I knew more about the girls friendship group. It plays such a big part of the story but we know relatively little about them as a group.

Still, this was a solid addition to the boys of Welles series and I can’t wait for the third book! 📖📖📖📖

About the book:
On the surface, Cameron Hass always seems a bit risky. First to take the dare, last to leave the tracks in the face of an oncoming train, the Boston rebel has always liked to flirt with danger. But underneath, he’s terrified. Not about breaking an arm or getting pulled over for driving twice the speed limit, but about the man he’s going to become when he graduates from Welles Academy. His role models have never really been much to look up to.

Brooklyn Bennett, on the other hand, always appears to have it together. Every button is done, every hair in the perfect place, every grade not just an A, but an A+. Beautiful, smart, and from political royalty, Brooklyn set her future goals at the age of five, and she’s never strayed from the path of following in her parents’ diplomatic footsteps.

Until now.

Surviving a terrifying car crash her junior year left Brooklyn questioning a lot of things. Losing her best friend left her feeling alone. But Cameron’s always been a good listener. And messy or not, his heart has always been in the right place. And when Brooklyn needed someone, he was right there. Maybe . . . he’s been there all along.

But how do chaos and rules go together? And what happens if the rest of the world wants to keep them apart?

The close-up blog tour, Kennedy Ryan

The Close-Up, an all-new moving second-chance novella set in the Hollywood Renaissance/HOOPS world from New York Times bestselling author Kennedy Ryan and 1,001 Dark Nights is available now!

I met Nazareth Armstrong when I was eighteen years old. From the beginning, my brother warned me to stay away from him. Told Naz to stay away from me.

Our hearts didn’t listen.

I shared one magical night under the stars with my brother's rival, thinking it was the start of a once-in-a-lifetime something.
But one awful moment ended it all.

Years later when we meet again, we’ve both pursued our dreams, lived a little, found success…but never found love. What began as a tiny flame when we were young now threatens to consume us. I’m more drawn to Naz than ever, but his complicated history with my brother makes whatever this could be…nearly impossible.

But Naz accepts impossible as a dare.

Through his clever maneuvering and dogged determination, I find myself on a yacht with him and his friends cruising through the Mediterranean. It’s a whirlwind set ablaze. Away from reality, surrendering to the tender heat of his touch, I forget that everything could burn.

*This is the love story of Takira, who first appears in Reel, book 1 of the Hollywood Renaissance series. Characters from the HOOPS series also make appearances, but you do not have to read any of those books to enjoy this one.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Keep reading for a look inside The Close-Up!

Naz has abandoned his cabin completely and has spent every night over the last week with me. Why front? He brought me here, and we can’t get enough of each other. I’m glad we’re on this yacht with a bunch of couples who also can’t get enough of each other because we’d be pretty obnoxious otherwise.
He’s rich as hell and could shower me with material things. And he does. At every port, I find some keepsake from the local shops he’s left for me in the room—an ankle bracelet, clips for my hair, diamond earrings. There has been no shortage of gifts, but the real gift has been his attention. The way he cares. The man bathes me. He wraps my hair up at night. He washes my face. I don’t know what this is, but I feel spoiled. Doted on. Adored. At first I was like…is this cringe? Is it weird? But then I recalled all those times when I didn’t feel valued in a relationship. All those times a guy disrespected me by looking at other women all night. All those times I didn’t feel this almost embarrassing amount of single-minded focus from a man who’s determined I’ll know how much he enjoys me. How much he likes me. Cherishes me, even. He’s constantly pulling me onto his lap. We sneak away from the group anytime the mood strikes us. Last night at dinner, he fed me from his plate.
From his plate.
Who am I right now?
I’m that girl, living out a fantasy on a half-a-billion dollar yacht floating on dreams along the coast of Italy. Forget Black girl magic. This is pure sorcery, and if it’s a spell, we’re both under it.

The close-up review and release blitz, Kennedy Ryan

 I love the way Kennedy writes. Her writing has a richness to it, and feels like caramel. It’s weird, but it’s the only way I can describe it.

I loved Naz and Takira. Takira especially was incredible. So strong, so confident, so unapologetic. An inspiration in character formation.

Naz was sexy and hell. I love the way he loves.

I also loved seeing the Hoops family again, that was great.

I do think things with Cliff wrapped up a little easily, but that was okay.

A hot, sexy, caramel-feel masterpiece. 📖📖📖📖

A relationship he’s kept hidden for decades.

 

Upon unearthing his secret through a series of emails in our paper’s archives, I began my search for the truth.

Or that my love for Easton Crowne would be key in discovering the reason behind what split our parents up.
