Cover Reveal: Sincerely, Carter by Whitney G.

Title: Sincerely, Carter
Author: Whitney G.
Release Date: April, 2015


Just friends.

We’re just friends.

No, really. She’s just my best friend...

Arizona Turner has been my best friend since fourth grade, even when we “hated” each other. We’ve been there for one another through first kisses, first “times,” and we’ve been each other’s constant when good relationships turned bad. (We even went to colleges that were minutes away from each other…)

Throughout the years, and despite what anyone says, we’ve never crossed the line.

Never thought about it.

Never wanted to.

Until one night changed everything.

At least, it should’ve...

Just friends.

We’re just friends.

I’m only saying this until I figure out if she’s still “just” my best friend…

Release Blitz: No Perfect Princess (Secrets of Stone #3) by Angel Payne & Victoria Blue



What came first? The princess or the shoes? And does it really matter?

My name is Margaux Asher. Don’t be afraid to ask how it’s spelled though I may enlighten you, anyway. Yes, I’m that Margaux Asher. The attitude icon. The bitch in the latest heels. The princess of the PR game.

Just don’t bring up the queen.

Mommie and I aren’t on comfortable terms. Last winter, I learned a secret that Andrea Asher has hidden from me since my birth—by another woman. And my real father? Josiah Stone, one of the world’s richest men. Dream come true, right?

There’s a lot of baggage attached to that answer. And now, Michael Pearson wants to help me open it.

Michael. My six-foot-three, golden god of a dilemma. He’s patient, indulgent—and don’t get me started on his passion—but he wants too much. He wants all the secrets. What would he say if he knew my birthright was only the start of my life’s mess? What would he do if he learns…I’m no perfect princess?

Someday, my princess will come…

The apple never falls far from the tree? Depends on who you ask.

I’m Michael Pearson. Son of an apple farmer. First family member to graduate college, move to the big city, and work for one of the most prestigious PR firms in the country. I’m the success, the star—

And the sap who’s fallen for the boss’s daughter.

So technically, Margaux isn’t Andrea’s daughter anymore. Doesn’t matter to the rest of the company—and the world—who vilify her as they always have. But where they see a she-snake, I see a terrified girl in the woods, yearning for a place where she’s accepted, loved. Every time I volunteer my arms to be that place, she ducks deeper into her shell, pushing me away with more fear and anger. Her facade thickens every day, making me more determined to learn what magic kiss will set her free, so she can finally see the truth…

I don’t want her to be perfect. I just want her to be mine.

Hi there. I'm Angel: book lover, writing addict, hopeless romantic, pop culture geek and avid shoe lover.

A bit about me... 

I've been hooked on books since I was a kid but it got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances--the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer manliness surrounded me, was certainly a good boost for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed--though my path toward romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets...backstage passes...that was a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, personal assistant work for a record producer, dance club disc jockey, and a lot of fun in the hospitality industry. 

These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.

Author J.S.Scott trained and worked for years as a Registered Respiratory Therapist before becoming an Author.

She self published in April 2012 with no experience at all. “I put together my own bad covers and edited the stories myself. (Big mistake!) I used KDP Select when I first started and offered up the stories for free, alternating the freebies. To my surprise… I actually started selling some books.”  Then she really hit it when she started working on a serial romance trilogy that readers started to follow enthusiastically — The Billionaire’s Obsession, which she eventually packaged into a “complete set” last February, selling the lot for one very low price. “I was lucky enough to have the book sell very well… well enough to hit the USA Today and NYT Bestsellers. Since then, I’ve written complete novels that have also done well.”

Review & Excerpt: Salvation (Heal Me #1) by Stephanie John

Photo of the cover of the contemporary romance novel, Salvation, by author Stephanie John

Title: Salvation
Author: Stephanie John
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Series: The Heal Me Series, Book 1


Green on green man

A chance meeting turned my world inside out.

Intelligent, sexy, and rich. With a dash of roguish charm and a cocksure smile, Nathan Blake is the ultimate fantasy. He can have any woman he wants with only a glance.

And he wants me.

My past has left me broken and humiliated, wary of men like him. I cut myself off from the pain, moving thousands of miles away to escape every reminder, determined to start anew.

I’ve been second best before. It isn't happening again.

One kiss and I'm caught under his spell, drawn to him with every breath I take.

I can't resist.

The passion that explodes between us becomes an intense connection neither of us thought we’d share.

Or need.

The suffering inside me reflects his – a pain I know he feels, but can’t bring himself to reveal. I have no idea his love can heal me – that mine can heal him…

…if only I can let down my guard for him and trust.

Photo quote from Salvation, a contemporary adult romance by Steph John


When I joined him, he was leaning against the sink staring at the wall, his features twisted in annoyance. “It’s important to me,” I encouraged, setting his empty bottle on the counter beside him. I pressed a hand to his shoulder. “I want to know all about you like you do me.” 

“Yeah,” he scoffed, shrugging me off, “except you won’t let me in either.” The ferocity of him tossing the plates into the sink with a crash panicked me. My ears began to ring with the sound of my heart thudding in my chest. Nate glanced sideways, his face set. “You’re keeping secrets, too.” 

I winced at the harsh truth of his words. What right did I have, asking him to open up when I couldn't do it myself? 

“Kara.” His fingertips drifted over my cheekbone. I jumped, taken aback by the veneration in his touch and the gentleness of his voice. “I don't want to argue, to spoil an idyllic couple of days.” 

I hated seeing him like this, so lost and bewildered, out of control. It went against so much of what I treasured about him. Yet it gave me comfort to know he wasn't just an ideal high on a pedestal, completely out of reach. Nate was human, and he was here, with me. 

I stepped closer and rubbed his arm. His eyes were mesmerising, the pupils almost fully dilated. My breath caught when I saw the depth of his feelings swimming in them as he stared back at me. The tiny tick of his jaw pulsed as he gritted his teeth. “I’m trying to do right by you. Trying my utmost to shelter you.” 

My body tensed. “From what?” 

Nate caressed my face, seeking and finding strength the way I did from him. His eyes were fretful and undecided. God, what had happened to make him behave so out of character? 

I wrapped my arms around him and pressed my cheek to his chest. His heart pounded frantically. His shower gel still lingered on me, and mine on his skin. The two scents, woody and almond merged together, giving me an inevitable sense of calm and assurance. “What happened in New York?”

Avatar photo representing author Stephanie John
Most days, you’ll find Stephanie John on a yacht, wearing a very skimpy bikini, drinking champagne, eating chocolate and never gaining weight. When she isn't asleep and dreaming, in real life you’re more likely to find her at the school gates, wearing whatever she dragged on that morning, drinking copious amounts of coffee. She still eats chocolate, though — everyone has their vices, right? Somehow, amidst the chaos of full-time mummy duties, she manages to write. Contemporary romance has always been her favourite genre to read for as long as she can remember (age-appropriate, of course). Never in a million years did it occur to her to write one of her own. Now, she couldn't imagine doing anything else.

My Review:

I love being introduced to new authors and I have to say that I am definitely happy that I got the chance to read this new book by  debut author Stephanie John :) The story was quite interesting and intriguing :) I loved the main characters and enjoyed their journey to each other every single step of the way :) The story is quite well written and the leads in it are quite captivating, well developed and interesting. Kara and Nate feel like real people, with flaws and mistakes in their pasts. And all that just makes them easier to relate to and feel their sorrows and happiness while reading the book.

Kara is quite an intriguing character. I have to say that I quite enjoyed seeing her bloom under Nate's attention :) I loved seeing her gaining her inner strength and self esteem again under the tender touch and encouragement of the delicious CEO. Given her past, it was quite understandable that she had trust issues and had difficulties believing that a gorgeous representative of the male species like Nate will be interested in her. I loved reading how Nate was breaking her walls brick by brick while at the same time allowing her to become herself again, the strong and confident individual she was before her ordeal with her ex.

As for Nate, what is there to say... He is definitely gorgeous, confident and simply delicious alpha male that you can all expect. And given his looks, he has every right to be :) I mean who can resist those mesmerizing blue eyes :) At the same time he is tortured by events from his past (I have to say that I am dying to find out what exactly happen ;) ) that come to haunt him again in the face of his ex. Even trough everything he is going through to protect the woman he loves he still finds the time and the way to show his feelings for Kara. And let me tell you, he probably uses every single romantic gesture you can think of and probably a few more just for good measure ;) So yes, you simply must meet Nate :D No way around it :D

So in a few words, this book is a must read :) I have to say that I was quite surprised by it considering that's a first book written by this author. It is definitely a very promising start and I can't wait to find out what will happen next with them, their friends and families :) And just a little warning :) Have in mind that the book is some what of a cliffie :D Even though the ending is not will leave you awake at night what exactly is going to happen next, it is still quite intriguing and it will make you want the next book in the series as fast as possible.

Now that my psychotic ex, Alex, can’t find me, I’ve been given a second chance. I owe my life to my friends. The same goes for Kyle. Without him, I wouldn’t be able to feel.

Everyone hates him. But for the life of me I don’t. There’s something about him I can’t ignore. Being with Kyle makes me want it all. However, in loving a hated man, I didn’t know it’d bring the life I fled from back to haunt me. Everywhere I go danger lurks and bad things happen.

Blog Tour: Reckless Love by Kendall Ryan

Title: Reckless Love (Hard to Love #2) 
Author: Kendall Ryan 
Synopsis: Cage fighting always came first for him… Ian’s life is full of sacrifice. His intense training schedule means brutal workouts, no drinking, and worst of all, no pussy. But it’s all worth it because he’s about to go pro. When a tempting young nurse starts working at his gym, he can’t escape the dirty desires clouding his mind, and it’s driving him crazy. He’d love a taste, but he needs his focus now more than ever. She’s kept her heart on maximum-security lockdown… Growing up in foster care, MacKenzie learned early on that love was something other people experienced, something she’d seen but never felt. When she meets sexy cage fighter, Ian, she expects nothing more than a one-night stand, but he walks away before they seal the deal. Now she’d like to forget the night they almost hooked up. But she’s just taken a job working at his gym, and despite her efforts to move on, his allure is overpowering. When Ian gets injured, they begin working together on his rehabilitation, and their one-on-one physical therapy sessions are so hot they sizzle, leaving them both desperate for more contact. The battle for their love is about to become a fight to the finish.

My Review: 

One I saw Kendall Ryan was releasing Reckless Love I knew I NEEDED to get my hands on it because I loved Hard to Love!

At first it took me some time to remember all the characters because I read Hard to Love 2 years ago but since this book can be read as a standalone I was easily hooked into the story. 

Both main characters are really amzing, I loved the chemistry that went between Ian and Kenzie, there were sparks flying everywhere! Ian is a hard-ass MMA fighter with a rock hard body and a heart full of love while Kenzie is a sweet ´n sexy kind of girl that needs to feel loved. Eventhough theirs is a bumpy relationship, their road as a couple is full of desire, angst and fate.

I really enjoyed reading Reckless Love, Kendall Ryan always manages to hook me easily into her stories.
