Cover Reveal: MIDNIGHT VALENTINE by @jtgeissinger

Please forgive me. I’m posting this while in my hotel room, on an iPad Mini WP app. It is so not cooperating with me. Nonetheless, I am excited with this future release from J.T. Geissinger.


True love never dies.


Megan and Cassidy were childhood sweethearts who thought they would be together forever. Fate had other plans. Soon after they were married, Cass’s life was tragically cut short. Still grieving her soul mate five years later, Megan moves to the small town of Seaside, Oregon, hoping to rebuild her life.


Her first night there, she meets the town recluse, Theo. Withdrawn, guarded, and mysteriously silent since a terrible accident left him scarred, Theo takes an instant and inexplicable dislike to Megan. But as their paths cross again and again, Megan becomes convinced there’s more to Theo than meets the eye.


When she discovers the reason for his silence, his nightmares, and especially his pointed dislike, Megan becomes convinced of something far more astonishing.


Is a second chance at a once-in-a-lifetime love possible, or is a broken heart the cruelest kind of liar?

Cover Reveal: Crave by @shanorawilliams


Crave, an all-new romantic STANDALONE from Shanora Williams is coming December 14th!


Crave by Shanora Williams

Release Date: December 14th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Designer: Jersey Girl & Co.

Every Sunday morning it’s just us in a fancy hotel suite.

We fight, argue, and make up like teenagers do.

We touch, we suck, but we don’t kiss.

No, we never kiss.

His lips have been all over my body – everywhere but on top of mine.

I wasn’t supposed to need his touch.

To beg for a kiss . . . just one little kiss.

But our little arrangement has swallowed me whole.

I only crave one thing, but I know he’ll never give it to me.

Because the only way he’ll kiss a woman is if he loves her.

And my playboy boss will never love me.

Review: Craving It All by @KatiWilde

craving it all kati wilde.jpg

Aaahhhh I thought I was over it when it comes to MC-themed romance. I’ve just read one too many of the same damned story. Then, I went thru my TBR list and found Kati Wilde’s “Craving It All.” It’s the first book I’ve read by this author, so I was a bit wary, since I’ve been recently pouring a little bit (#lot) of non-love over some authors who were new to me. Thankfully, this one surprised me and I think I’m gonna be getting more Hellfire Riders MC books.

I loved book heroine, Sara Abu-Hamdi. She’s a non-conservative Muslim; she prays five times a day; she’s a strong woman, who is not wishy-washy about what she wants; and, she knows how to fight. I equally loved book-(anti) hero, Bull. The way he treats Sara, his Pop, and his friends…. All in all, this was a pretty perfect read on a mid-week work holiday.

Review: Love Me By Christmas by Jaci Burton


Ellie, the book’s heroine, is being double-dipped into. As in, she’s got 2 brothers’ penises inside her vagina. At different times, of course (this is not one of those weird erotica porn books), but it’s still weird. Jaci Burton’s “Love Me By Christmas” is the fictional version of Beau Biden’s wife, who is now getting it on, with her brother-in-law. The said BIL is divorcing his own wife, just so he can marry his brother’s widow. Hmmmmm…. they’re not doing anything illegal or unethical (“thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife” comes to mind #sorry), I think, but it’s just plain weird. As is this book.

Book-hero, Nick, is extremely sure about how he feels about his brother’s widow. He also had a few valid points on why he thought he was the perfect next man for Ellie. Ellie, on the other hand, is hemming and hawing her way through the entire novella, and she was driving me nuts. This was not the way I thought Ms. Burton’s new Christmas-themed book would be. I loved the author’s Hot Holiday Nights, so I find myself just wishing she would write another one like that. Something light, very naughty, and really good. “Love Me By Christmas” was not any of those.

Review: The Air He Breathes by Brittainy C. Cherry


I honestly thought I was going to give my first-ever Brittainy Cherry book at least a 4-star rating. The problem, though, was the writing style. I just don’t like it. Ms. Cherry jumped from scene to scene as if she was running in a zigzagging pattern. Sure, the scenes were sequential, but some of them were written as if Ms. Cherry missed a beat somewhere. I already had inkling of how the main characters, Elizabeth and Tristan, were linked, in a very macabre and weird way, (read the book’s blurb here) but the way their connection was told was not in an “a-ha, omg, that was a great twist” style, it was more, like, “hahahaha, I gotcha” way. Do you know what I mean? It’s as if the author went through the first draft of her manuscript and just hacked away entire transitional scenes, just to meet a word-count goal. Plus, the characters were so cliché, it hurts to read about them. For example, Elizabeth’s slutty and no-filter best friend, Faye. She sleeps with her boss, falls in love with him, then all of a sudden, we see her knocking on Tristan’s door, asking him to give her his dog’s poop so she can set it on fire at her boss’ house, since the said boss just told her that he’s getting back with his ex-wife. Oh, and then, Elizabeth’s dead husband’s best friend, Tanner, was the ultimate bad guy with an American boy-next-door/BMOC façade. Plus, the gossipy and malicious Stepford wives in Elizabeth’s small town were bitches of epic proportions.

The only thing I loved about “The Air He Breathes” was Mr. Henson. And, Zeus, the loyal medium-sized dog of indeterminate breed. I think I’ll skip the next books in the series, for the meantime, and go for some Alexa Riley right now, just so I can cheer myself up, and have a mindless, stomach-bulging Thanksgiving weekend.2 stars

Cover Reveal: Behind the Bars by @BrittainyCherry


Behind the Bars, the first standalone in the all-new Music Street Series from Brittainy C. Cherry is coming December 7th!

Behind the Bars by Brittainy C. Cherry

Release Date: December 7th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Designer: Kandi Steiner

Photographer: Perrywinkle Photographer

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops. I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen. The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness. Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.
Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find. And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans. She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.


Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her. Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops. When we met again, she was the darkest storm.

Review: Sure Thing by @JanaAston

sure thing jana aston.jpg

That’s right. EVERYTHING is great about British men. At least, that’s what author Jana Aston and I, her newest fervent reader/cheerleader, would like to think. *wink wink nudge nudge*


“Sure Thing” was a breeze to read. Suffice it to say: I freakin’ loved it. It’s got minimal drama, and had me chuckling and rooting hard for its fictional characters. It’s reading light, feel-good, romantic novels like this that’s got me thinking: I’ve got to get me more of Ms. Aston’s books.


Who couldn’t like a woman who covers for her irresponsible twin sister, while she herself is going through some tough times? Likewise, who wouldn’t fall just a little bit in love with a grown man who still takes his granny on holiday? Alone! Just him and granny. Ugh. That man sounds too good to be true (he is, I’m sure, fake good news). Plus, I am addicted to joining (small) bus tours. Personally, I think they’re a riot.

Now, let me just go to the store to buy myself some new Union Jack panties. They’re warranted, I feel, as self-gifts this Christmas, just because book-hero, Jennings, is still on my mind.5 stars
