What’s the worst that could happen?

Mona’s meticulously planned allotment of relaxation is thrown into chaos by the unscheduled appearance of her older brother’s band of friends, including the one person she’d hoped to never face again.

★3.5 – 4 STARS★

The anticipation of how things would unfold has kept me on the edge of my seat and embarrassingly desperate for the second instalment of the Physics series. To recap briefly, studious and career driven Mona Da Vinci, (who in a misplaced sense of guilt due to their estrangement) agrees to impersonate her twin sister Lisa in her hour of need. I say hour, but in actual fact it’s a week. A week of living with Abram, their brother’s best friend, who has been tasked to keep an eye on “Lisa”

Of all the disasters Mona envisaged, falling in love with Abram was not one of them. Yet in the here and now where the story picks up, the fallout of their week together is set to take place before our very eyes. Oddly I couldn’t help but feel it as satisfying as it is dissatisfying. It’s worth remembering that theirs is an intricate story due to its timeline and crossover of familiar characters, and in staying true to that, it’s understandable that things may not have moved at the pace I maybe expected.

That said, when the ill-fated couple come face to face once again I was happily sucked into the tsunami of hope and pain, as well as the bliss of a newfound dynamic they establish for themselves.

Lulled into a blissful false sense of security the story ends before I was ready for it too.  My appetite is whet, my interest is piqued, and April seems like an ungodly amount of time to have to wait for the final instalment.

Greyson East left his mark on me.

As the young girl who first fell for him, I didn’t know much about life. I did know about his smiles, though, and his laughs, and the strange way my stomach flipped when he was near.

Life was perfect…until it wasn’t, and when we were forced to go our separate ways, I held on to our memories, let go of my first crush, and wished for the day I’d find him again.

When my wish came true, it was nothing like I imagined.

I couldn’t have known when I took the nanny position that it would be his children I looked after, that my new boss would be that boy I used to know, that boy who was now a man—a cold, lonely, detached man.

The smile and laugh I had loved so much were gone, now distant memories. Every part of him was covered in a fresh pain.

When he realized who I was, he made me promise to do my job and my job only.

He made me promise not to try to get to know him, not to recall the memories I’d treasured all this time.

But, sometimes, I saw the boy I’d once known in his stormy eyes. I saw the Greyson who smiled and laughed, who had stolen a young girl’s heart, and there was no doubt in my mind that this boy was worth fighting for.

I was given a second chance with the one who’d left his mark on me. All I hoped was that somehow I’d leave a mark on his soul, too.

★COVER REVEAL★ EIGHTY-ONE NIGHTS BY GEORGIA CATES

 

EIGHTY-ONE NIGHTS by Georgia Cates

Series: Beautiful Illusions Duet, #1
Release Date: 9th April 2019

 

Beautiful, penniless American girl meets handsome, wealthy Scotsman.
Sounds like the beginning of a fairy-tale romance?
It’s not.

This story begins with a contract.
And an exchange of money.
A lot of money.

An angel perches nervously on one shoulder.
A devil lounges smugly on my other.
And even that dark little bastard is leery of what I’m doing.

Maxwell Hutcheson wants the girlfriend experience.
All of it.
And I’m going to give it to him.

I’m not supposed to enjoy being his whore.
I’m also not supposed to fall in love with him.
But I do. Both.

When our contract expires, I will walk away.
Because I have to.
But he’ll always have a piece of me.

I’ll mask my sorrow with a smile.
I’ll hide my love with indifference
… all while it’s killing me softly.

A fairy-tale romance.
It isn’t mine to have.
And this man I’ve come to love so dearly isn’t my happily ever after.

About Eighty-One Nights:
While the characters from Eighty-One Nights are entirely new, their storyline is a combination of fresh material and carefully selected themes, scenes, and settings from The Beauty Series, The Sin Trilogy, Dear Agony, and Indulge. This is intentional. I chose some of my favorite elements from previous releases and interjected them into Hutch and Lou’s story. Let’s call it a “story fusion” between our old favorites and new material.

 

 


 

About the Author:


Georgia resides in rural Mississippi with her wonderful husband, Jeff, and their two beautiful daughters. She spent fourteen years as a labor and delivery nurse before she decided to pursue her dream of becoming an author and hasn’t looked back yet.

When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing. When she’s being domestic, she’s listening to her music and visualizing scenes for her current work in progress. Every story coming from her always has a song to inspire it.

★BLOG TOUR★ DEVIL’S DAUGHTER BY LISA KLEYPAS

Genres: Historical Romance
Published by Avon

DEVIL’S DAUGHTER by Lisa Kleypas

Series: The Ravenels #5

Genre: Historical Romance

 

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas delivers a scintillating tale of a beautiful, young widow who finds passion with the one man she shouldn’t…

Although beautiful young widow Phoebe, Lady Clare, has never met West Ravenel, she knows one thing for certain: he’s a mean, rotten bully. Back in boarding school, he made her late husband’s life a misery, and she’ll never forgive him for it. But when Phoebe attends a family wedding, she encounters a dashing and impossibly charming stranger who sends a fire-and-ice jolt of attraction through her. And then he introduces himself…as none other than West Ravenel.

West is a man with a tarnished past. No apologies, no excuses. However, from the moment he meets Phoebe, West is consumed by irresistible desire…not to mention the bitter awareness that a woman like her is far out of his reach. What West doesn’t bargain on is that Phoebe is no straitlaced aristocratic lady. She’s the daughter of a strong-willed wallflower who long ago eloped with Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent—the most devilishly wicked rake in England.

Before long, Phoebe sets out to seduce the man who has awakened her fiery nature and shown her unimaginable pleasure. Will their overwhelming passion be enough to overcome the obstacles of the past?

Only the devil’s daughter knows…

“If you have any misguided thoughts about taking me into your bed, you would find it a vastly mediocre experience. I’d be on you like a crazed rabbit, and half a minute later the whole thing would be over. I used to be a proficient lover, but now I’m a burnt-out libertine whose only remaining pleasure is breakfast food. Speaking of which—”

Phoebe reached for him, brought herself up hard against him, and interrupted him with her mouth. West flinched as if scalded and held very still in the manner of a man trying to withstand torture. Undeterred, she wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed him as passionately as she could, touching her tongue to his stiff lips. The feel and taste of him was exhilarating. Suddenly he responded with a primitive grunt and his mouth clamped on hers, wringing sensation from her with demanding pressure. Forcing her lips apart, he searched her with his tongue the way she remembered, and it felt so good, she thought she might faint. A whimper rose from her throat, and he licked and bit gently at the sound and sealed their mouths together in a deep, insatiable kiss that involved his lips, breath, hands, body, soul.

Whatever it might be like to go to bed with this man . . . it would be anything but mediocre.

 


 

★4 STARS

Devil’s Daughter is the story of Phoebe, Lady Clare. Aptly named so because because she is the daughter of Sebastian St. Vincent from Devil in Winter. Yes, you read that correctly! She’s re entering society after observing a period of mourning for her childhood sweetheart and husband, Lord Henry Clare. 

As nervous as she is to rejoin society she’s very much aware that returning to normality is in the best interests of two precocious young sons. With her family rallying around to support her, her first foray back is at her brother’s wedding festivities. 

Dipping her toes in becomes more of a stumble when she comes face to face with her late husbands childhood bully, West Ravenel. He’s a devil alright, in looks and in his salacious reputation, but looks can be deceiving as Phoebe soon finds out.

Redemption is a characteristic I look for and enjoy witnessing in broken heroes, and West very fit into this category. He never felt himself worthy of Phoebe and her sons, and my heart broke for him at times, but he eventually overcame this to be the man Phoebe and her sons never doubted he could be.

When it comes to Historical Romance it really doesn’t get much better than Lisa Kleypas. Swooning over her heroes and championing her smart heroines are par for the course, but it’s her stellar writing and storytelling that always keep me coming back for more.

★NEW RELEASE★ CRASHING INTO HER BY MIA SOSA

Genres: Contemporary Romance
Published by Avon Impulse

CRASHING INTO HER by Mia Sosa

Series: Love on Cue #3

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

Relationships are a thing of the past for Eva Montgomery. Her current motto? You can’t spell “manipulative” without man. But Eva has needs, and a one-night-stand at her best friend’s wedding is the perfect way to kick off her new approach to singledom. Then a job opportunity puts her in the same city with the guy she can’t forget . . .

Anthony Castillo is a perpetual bachelor—no strings, just flings—a status he maintains by being honest about his intentions and never looking back. So why is he still thinking about the firecracker of a woman who rocked his world at his cousin’s wedding? It’s a question he refuses to answer, until she comes crashing back into his life, taking his emotional walls down with her.

When her father doubts her ability to make it in LA, Eva vows to go big and prove him wrong. With her athletic background, she’s an ideal candidate for stunt work. But first she’ll need training, and the instructor is none other than her former hookup, Anthony Castillo. Except he’s not as cocky as she remembers and he’s definitely still sexy as sin. The only problem is . . . Anthony doesn’t want her anywhere near his stunt school—or his heart.

★NEW RELEASE & REVIEW★ THE RISK BY ELLE KENNEDY

Genres: New Adult, Sports Romance

Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK | iBooks | Kobo | Nook |

 

THE RISK by Elle Kennedy

Series: Briar U, #2

Genre: New Adult, Sports Romance

 

A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy. THE RISK takes you back to the world of hot hockey players, feisty heroines, bro banter, and steamy scenes… 

Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right—I don’t let fear rule me, and I certainly don’t care what people think. But I draw the line at sleeping with the enemy. As the daughter of Briar’s head hockey coach, I’d be vilified if I hooked up with a player from a rival team.

And that’s who Jake Connelly is. Harvard’s star forward is arrogant, annoying, and too attractive for his own good. But fate is cruel—I require his help to secure a much-coveted internship, and the sexy jerk isn’t making it easy for me.

I need Connelly to be my fake boyfriend.

For every fake date…he wants a real one.

Which means this bad girl is in big trouble. Nothing good can come from sneaking around with Jake Connelly. My father would kill me, my friends will revolt, and my post-college career is on the line. But while it’s getting harder and harder to resist Jake’s oozing sex appeal and cocky grin, I refuse to fall for him.

That’s the one risk I’m not willing to take.

★4 STARS★

As a staunch hockey lover and supporter of Briar U, Harvard hotshot Jake Connelly is public enemy number one where Brenna Jensen is concerned. If you’ve read The Chase you’ll remember we were teased by what was to come with their sharp back and forth. The teams are long-time rivals and with the amounting tension rising due to them being set to face off on the ice, it’s both a nuisance and inconvenience that circumstances have thrown them into a situation that requires them to enter a fake relationship.

Admittedly the nuisance and inconvenience is one sided as Jake loves nothing more than rubbing Brenna up the wrong way. She’s feisty and self-assured, and his attraction to her means he’s more than happy to be her fake boyfriend if it affords him the opportunity to get to know her better with one of his mandatory real dates.

The banter of was off the charts and I loved how these two bounced off one another. Combined with the fantastic secondary characters (shout out to Hollis & Rupi) who brought the laughs, The Risk has been my favourite outing with the series so far.

There were some serious moments when it came to Brenna’s ex and her strained relationship with her father, as well as dealing with gender equality in the world of sports broadcasting. I felt these added to the substance of the story and made for a well-rounded read.

The momentum to this series is well and truly picking up and I’m waiting with baited breathe for the puck to drop with the next instalment.
