FIREWORKS by Sarina Bowen

Series: True North, #6

Release Date: 13th November 2018


Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a wiener on the traffic map.

Let that sink in. Like it’s her fault the traffic pattern created a perfect schlong?

Skye isn’t laughing. She needs this job. And that’s the only reason she’s willing to chase down a story in her least favorite place—that hell on earth known as Vermont.

A quick trip. In and out. Much like – never mind. She can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and slide back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy.

But things go sideways the moment she steps over the county line. Her stepsister is running from a violent drug dealer. And the cop on the case is none other than Benito Rossi, the man who broke Skye’s teenage heart.

His dark brown eyes still tear her apart. And even as she steels herself to finally tell him off after twelve years, the old fireworks are still there.

Things are about to go boom.

★4 STARS

I’m always drawn to the element of unfinished business that lends itself with a second chance romance. I revel in the tension that comes with battling the minefield of unresolved issues, as well as the exploration in navigating a brand new path. For Benito and Skye their battles came when they were ill-equipped to deal with them. Benito took on the role of defender for Skye in a period of her life when she was at her most vulnerable, and he at his most powerless to act where it mattered. Nevertheless, for Skye Benito was a constant and source of warm in her bitterly cold world.

The temperature of their relationship cools dramatically when Skye perceives Benito to abandon her. It’s both a crushing and humiliating experience, but from it comes the opportunity flee Vermont and the monsters that lurked there. 

For 12 years Benito had always wondered about Skye. His protective nature and duty to defend those at risk has lead him to a career in the police force. It’s almost poetic that he now serves justice for people when he has always felt like he failed her.

Skye’s reappearance is unexpected but wholly welcomed. It’s as though time had paused and seeing her again kickstarts his pounding emotion and visceral need to keep her safe. Although being in Benito’s company is the last thing she would have wanted, her hesitation fades away with the familiar comfortability she has always had in his company. Vermont has never felt like home but when her reservations subside she allows herself to realise Benito always has.

Benito and Skye’s story made for a great addition to the series, I really enjoyed the investigative element to the story and was fully invested in its long-awaited and satisfying resolution.

Sarina makes wonderful work executing a romance that touches on some serious themes but still possess the delicate feelings that accompany first love. It’s always a pleasure to read a novel of Sarina’s and if your experience is anything like mine, you’ll fall in love with this one on sight.

Hate Notes final paperback cover

 

HATE NOTES by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Genre: Standalone Romance

Release Date: 6th November 2018

 

It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress.

Something blue.

I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.”

Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true.

The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there. Because I’ve since found out something else about Mr. Starry-Eyed.

He’s arrogant, cynical, and demanding. I should know. Thanks to a twist of fate, he’s my new boss. But that’s not going to stop me from discovering the story behind his last love letter. A love letter that did not result in a happily ever after.

But that story is nothing compared to the one unfolding between us. It’s getting hotter, sweeter, and more surprising than anything I could have imagined.

Something new.

But I have no idea how this one is going to end . . .

Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco.

It’s a big deal.

When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning.

What she isn’t…is married.

It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want.

Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty.

Even Queens. Especially them.

**

Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.

And a sacred promise keeps him there.

To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure.

**

Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever.

Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story.

This is theirs.

BALLISTIC by Keri Lake

Series: A Vigilantes Novel

Release Date: October 30, 2018

A life for a life.

On the streets of Detroit, it’s the code we live by. You take from me, I take from you. A balance of power, and a ceaseless war between rivals.

As a foster kid from the projects, I never had much, besides an unshakable addiction to women and drugs. Only took one glance into the amber eyes of a slave for me to realize my two worst vices could be one and the same.

And the woman behind those eyes quickly became my obsession.

Nicoleta is more than she seems. An enigma I’m determined to crack before time runs out and our enemies hunt her down. Except, she moves by her own trajectory, an unstoppable bullet on the warpath to track down the men who murdered a girl from her past.

Me? I’m the rogue whose path is less predictable. A junkie, fiending for the one thing I shouldn’t want: the only woman who gets me high. I want to keep her for myself, but when the unstoppable bullet finally hits her mark and secrets begin to unravel, another life must be paid.
A heart for a heart.

★BLOG TOUR, EXCERPT & REVIEW★ FALL BY KRISTEN CALLIHAN

Genres: Contemporary Romance

FALL by Kristen Callihan

Series: VIP, #3

Release Date: 23rd October 2018

 

The first time I met Jax Blackwood things went a little sideways.

In my defense, I didn’t know he was Jax Blackwood—who expects a legendary rock star to be shopping for groceries? More importantly, a blizzard was coming and he was about to grab the last carton of mint-chocolate chip.

Still, I might have walked away, but then he smugly dared me to try and take the coveted ice cream. So I kissed him. And distracted that mint-chip right out of his hands.

Okay, it was a dirty move, but desperate times and all that. Besides, I never expected he’d be my new neighbor.

An annoying neighbor who takes great pleasure in reminding me that I owe him ice cream but would happily accept more kisses as payment. An irresistible neighbor who keeps me up while playing guitar naked–spectacularly naked–in his living room.

Clearly, avoidance is key. Except nothing about Jax is easy to ignore—not the way he makes me laugh, or that his particular brand of darkness matches mine, or how one look from him melts me faster than butter under a hot sun.

Neither of us believes in love or forever. Yet we’re quickly becoming each other’s addiction. But we could be more. We could be everything.

All we have to do is trust enough to fall.

★NEW RELEASE, EXCERPT & REVIEW★ TRAILER PARK HEART BY RACHEL HIGGINSON

Genres: Contemporary Romance

TRAILER PARK HEART by Rachel Higginson

Release Date: 23rd October 2018

Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK | iBooks | B&N |

Trailer park born and raised. It’s my legacy. That’s how my mama lived. And that’s how her mama lived. It’s the life I was born into and it’s the life I swore I would leave the second I was old enough to make it out.

Only legacies have a funny way of sneaking up on you. An innocent decision the night of high school graduation led to a series of complications in my plans to escape.

Seven years later, I’ve resigned myself to this small town and the roots I’m tied to. Nothing could make me leave. And nothing could make me spill the secrets that keep me here.

Until he walks back into town with a chip on his shoulder and a stupid hunch nobody else in town has been smart enough to follow.

Levi Cole is my opposite. Born on the right side of the tracks with family money to spare, he’s the kind of black sheep that can afford to be rebellious—because his family will always pay for his mistakes. He’s also the only living heir to Cole Family Farms, after his brother Logan was killed in duty seven years ago.

He sees something in my life that he thinks he has a right to. But he’s wrong. And obnoxious. And he needs to take his stubborn good looks and that intense way he looks at me and go back to wherever it was he came from.

I know better than to trust men like him. I was born and raised in a trailer park, I know nothing good happens to girls like me—girls with trailer park lives and trailer park hearts. Especially from gorgeous, kind, pigheaded men like him.

I for one cannot wait for this book! Feast your eyes on GOOD TIME by Jana Aston coming in November!

 

GOOD TIME by Jana Aston

Release Date: November 6th

 

There’s one thing you should know.

I wasn’t that drunk.

I was more than sober enough to put a stop to it.

The truth is, it was my idea. I’m the one who suggested it.

I knew it was crazy, but it’s not as if I’d be the first girl to get married on a whim in Las Vegas. I wouldn’t even be the last girl to get married on a whim in Las Vegas.

So what’s my excuse? I liked him. I liked the idea that he’d be stuck with me, just for a little bit.

Because nothing good ever lasts, so you might as well have a good time while you can.

About the Author:

Jana Aston likes cats, big coffee cups and books about billionaires who deflower virgins. She wrote her debut novel while fielding customer service calls about electrical bills, and she’s ever grateful for the fictional gynecologist in Wrong that readers embraced so much she was able to make working in her pajamas a reality. Jana’s novels have appeared on the NYT, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists, some multiple times. She likes multiples.

ALL MY LIFE by Prescott Lane
Release Date: October 10, 2018

 

All My Life, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Prescott Lane.

The beginning of any love story starts with the meet.

I’ve known Garrett Hollis since before I can remember, and I’ve loved him just as long. I loved him while he loved someone else. I loved him when he had a baby with her. I loved him when she left him.

The greatest of love stories is that between a dad and his daughter. I should know. I’ve had a front row seat. First steps, first words, all the big moments.

Garrett was just a teenager when Mia was born. I’ve watched him braid his daughter’s hair, hold her hand crossing the street, seen her asleep on his chest. I’m the best friend, the one they can count on for everything from dance lessons to motherly advice, anything they need. I’m their go-to girl.

The best part of any love story is the happily ever after.

But what if the happily ever after doesn’t include you?

All my life, that’s how long I’ve loved him.

Of course, he’s clueless.

As far as dates go, this one has been good. I like her. She’s attractive, funny, smart, seems to have her head on straight. All the boxes are checked. This should be the point where I kiss her, ask her out again. I should be devising ways to get in this woman’s panties, but instead I’m thinking more about yanking down the tutu of one very sexy Biscuit Girl. I should be thinking about how to get this woman to fall for me, but it’s me that’s fallen. I should have one thing on my mind, and I do — Devlyn.

There’s just one big ass problem. She’s my friend. I can’t go there. There are so many reasons why I can’t go there. The town would have a field day. We’d have no privacy. Everyone would have an opinion. If we broke up, where would I get a decent cup of coffee? How would Mia react to this? Then there’s Scott, who’s actually the least of my concerns. Devlyn seemed pretty sure it was over, and if it’s not, I plan on convincing her.

I don’t want to lose Devlyn.

Staying friends guarantees her in my life. Dating her doesn’t.

Love doesn’t come with a guarantee.

Love is a risk. I used to be a risk taker, but teenage fatherhood buried that part of me. Stability became the name of the game. It had to. I look towards her diner, wondering if she’s back.

 

★3 STARS

While most seventeen year old guys are carefree and possibly heading to college, Garrett Hollis was changing diapers and single handedly raising his baby daughter, Mia. What began as a holiday romance with his daughter’s mother ended in a situation that literally left him holding the baby.

He’s admirable in the way he shoulders the responsibility and the proof is in the pudding when his now seventeen year old daughter is Valedictorian of graduating high school class. Her gratitude to her father is humbling, so much so it’s the topic of her speech. Her hopes for him now is to find love and fulfil the moments he missed out on when he was raising her.

Mia’s heartfelt speech gains social media attention and it’s not long before it goes viral. In turn it brings with it an influx of women to the town hoping to bag themselves the catch that is Garrett. Although not at all keen Garrett agrees to go on three dates to keep Mia happy. In all the craziness he’s grateful for the sanity that is his best friend, Devlyn Drake.

‘DD’ has had the title of best friend for almost 20 years, and for everyone of them she has wished for something more. She’s been there for both Garrett and Mia and as much as she loves them the hurt of being on the outside looking in is becoming too much to bear. I have to admit I was looking forward to the torture of the unrequited love but I felt things moved quite quickly without any significant change to their dynamic. The reappearance of Mia’s mother was another was a source of conflict but to me she felt caricature of a villain.

Although not quite the heart-wrectching romance I hoped for, All my Life was a sweet friends to lovers romance with small town charm.
