Title: Just Kidding
Series: KPD SWAT Generation 2.0 #1
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Release Date: January 7th, 2020

Synopsis:

Let’s do a calendar, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.
Well, they—i.e. Kilgore Police Department’s public relations specialists—were wrong.
Now, every time Dax Tremaine walks around a corner, the women of Kilgore, Texas can’t help calling him Mr. January.
Mr. January, can you fix my flat tire? Mr. January, can you cuff me? Mr. January, can you sign my boob?
It goes from bad to worse when even on a SWAT call, the women won’t stay away.

***

It was the worst time of her life. Rowen Roberts had finally admitted to herself that the man she loved would never love her back. She was just fired from her job for violating client confidentiality, and to make matters worse, she’s held up at gunpoint in a convenience store where she only wanted some ice cream to help mask the pain.
The moment the gun is pressed to her forehead, she knows she has a decision to make. Follow the rules and maybe possibly live, or go down swinging where at least she can salvage just a little bit of her dignity.
And when Mr. January himself tells her to do what the gunman says, she’s had enough. Rowen has never really been a girl that does what she’s told. Mr. January won’t have to save her. She can dang well save herself.

Title: Fries Before Guys
Series: KPD SWAT Generation 2.0 #2
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Release Date: February 11th, 2020

Synopsis:

Sometimes people come into a person's life and make their heart skip a beat. Those people are called cops. Well, one cop in particular. A SWAT officer for the Kilgore Police Department calendar. He was leaned back in his squad car, shirtless, and giving her a smile that was completely between them. A smile that hinted at what he wanted to do to her late. When she scrounges up the courage to ask him out after the photoshoot, he laughs in her face. Well, screw you, too, Mr. February.

***


Derek Roberts never really paid attention to the photographer. She was a mousy girl who dressed like a twelve-year-old girl. Her tight leggings, extra baggy Star Trek t-shirt denoting her a Klingon captain, and her surprisingly clean chucks didn't leave much of an impression. Now, the outfit that she was in weeks after he rebuffed her. Yeah, now that caught his attention. Too bad that happens when he's trying to save her from what's sure to be death
thanks to an unhinged native Texan who's convinced she was the reason he lost his last chance at a million dollars. When he tries to save her, she tells him she'd rather take a cattle prod to the forehead than go anywhere with him. 

Challenge. Accepted.

Release Blitz: Reining Her In by Katie Ashley



Title: Reining Her In
Author: Katie Ashley
Release Date: August 15th, 2019

Synopsis:
The last time I saw Declan St. James was at our rehearsal dinner. That was shortly before he jilted me at the altar. To avoid the swarm of whispers and finger pointing every time I dared to show my face in public, I fled two hours south to Atlanta and never looked back. Over the last decade, I’d planned hundreds of scenarios about how our next meeting would go down. The expletives I’d hurl at him. Which knee I might use to annihilate his balls. Which dimpled cheek on his ridiculously handsome face I would send a stinging slap across.

But being elbow deep in a cow’s ass was not one of them.

Normally, I didn’t get up close and personal to a bovine’s rectum. At least not since veterinarian school. But desperate times found me back home to attend my grandfather’s funeral, who happened to be the town’s large animal vet. Those two facts had left me wading through manure in Roy Wallace’s pasture to care for a distressed heifer.

While time and maturity seemed to have changed him from the boy I knew, I still wasn’t falling for his charm. Or his hard, chiseled body. Or ass you could eat dinner off of.

No, I wasn’t going back down that street again. Unfortunately, Declan didn’t seem to get the message. Instead, he seemed as stubborn as he ever was and ready for a fight. It’ll be the fight of his life for me to let him back in my heart.

Release Blitz, Review: Call Her Mine (Harmony Pointe #1) by Melissa Foster




Title: Call Her Mine
Series: Harmony Pointe #1
Author: Melissa Foster
Release Date: August 13th, 2019

Synopsis:

Two besties and a baby make for an instafamily and a surprising romance in a delightful series by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of the Sugar Lake novels.

 Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.

 Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.

 But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after… just not one either of them expects.

My Review:
It's been a while since I've read just a sweet romance without any suspense and danger in it. And I can't even remember when was the last time I read a Melissa Foster book. I love her writing style and her stories but at some point life just got in the way and I lost track. But I am so happy that I got the chance to read and review her latest book, Call Her Mine. This is a friends to lovers story with a little bit of heartbreak (but trust me, those few pages are going to make you tear up) and a sweet as a pie baby girl that will capture your heart from the very start.

Ben and Rels are two great characters. They've been friends forever and had feelings for each other for nearly as long but their timing has always been off and they both kept their feelings a secret from the other one. In a way, they are at an impasse and they both need a push in order to sort things out. Imagine that push coming in the form of an adorable baby girl left at Ben's doorstep. You can probably imagine the panic that overcomes Ben and the chaos that follows. The result of course is multiple funny situations and a baby daddy, so adorable that he can melt you your heart. But the situation also finally forces Ben to confront his feelings and reveal them to Aurelia. Of course, things are not hears and roses after that and there are more than one obstacles in their way: being a new parent and handling a new relationship and business on top of that, is definitely not a walk in the park.  The strength of Aurelia and Ben's relationship is tested on more than one occasion, but every single time they show that the love they have for each other and for baby Bea is more than enough to overcome everything thrown their way.

So, if you are looking for a sweet enemies to lovers story with a hint of heartbreak and a sprinkle of humor, look no further. This is the book for you. And if you've read some of Melissa's other series, you will get to revisit with some of your favorite characters as well. So don't waste any time and get your copy now :)

Meet the Author
Writing came relatively later in life for K.L. Shandwick after a challenge by a friend led to The Everything Trilogy. She loves creating new characters and story lines. Her characters have flaws and she hopes this helps the connection between them and her readers. K.L. enjoys the journeys they take her on during the creation of her stories, and each character has his or her own voice. She doesn’t use prepared outlines for her stories preferring the characters to take their own direction as the story progresses. These days K.L. lives in the Yorkshire countryside in the UK, and writes full-time.

My Review

Wow! K L Shandwick has blown me away with this story. It's a roller coaster of a read and keep the tissues nearby as you will feel all the emotions when reading this story. It's a story about going through heartbreak and rebuilding from that. I was truly captivated by Cole and Harper's story and couldn't put it down. This is going to have to go down as one of my top reads of 2019. I urge you to go and one click this book now!

Release Blitz, Review: She's Like The Wind - Carrie Elks

Title: She's Like The Wind
Author: Carrie Elks
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 16, 2019
Cover Designed by: Najla Qamber

He’d be a fool to fall for his long-legged, barefoot employee. But bad decisions have never stopped him before… Successful businessman and single father, Nate Crawford, doesn’t need any more complications. That’s why he’s moved his business – and his life – to a small beach town. He’s expecting sun, sea and tranquility, but what he gets is a whirlwind in the form of town sweetheart, Ally Sutton. Ally’s used to dealing with heartache. But losing the café she’s owned for years is the final straw. Being offered a new job feels like a lifeline – that is until she meets her much-older, and impossibly handsome new boss. In the space of a few weeks everything changes. And when an accident forces them closer, Nate and Ally can’t ignore the fascination between them any longer. But neither of them are ready for the storm they’re about to unleash.   **She’s Like the Wind is the second book in the Angel Sands series, set in a small beach town on the California coast. If you like a heartwarming read that’s low on angst and big on feels, this stand-alone romance is for you.**  
   

Excerpt

  Ally bit down a smile and looked at Nate, who was still hovering in the doorway. “It’s okay. You don’t have to paint my nails. I can probably manage if I bend over enough.” He looked at the bottle Riley had shoved in his hands. “It’s a nice color.” “Riley chose it.” He took a step inside then hesitated, looking over at Ally. “Is it okay if I come in?” he asked. “Of course it is. It’s your house.” “But it’s your room.” His words made her feel warm. As though she finally belonged somewhere. “Come in. It’s nice to have the company.” He walked up to the bed, and looked down at her feet. “Let’s do this thing,” he said, sitting down in the space his daughter had vacated. “I don’t want to incur the wrath of Riley.” “Do you even know how to paint nails?” Ally asked, trying to keep her voice even. It felt so intimate, having him here in the room when she was wearing only a tank and sleep shorts. God only knew how much more intimate it would feel once he touched her. And if he painted her toes, he’d definitely have to touch her. She wasn’t sure how she felt about that.  

Advance Praise For She's Like The Wind

‘Ally and Nate’s beautiful love story grabbed my heart and wouldn’t let go’ – Teresa, Goodreads reviewer ‘I always love the family/small town aspect of this author’s books, it makes them feel more intimate. The characters rally for one another, they truly care.’ – Ginelle, Goodreads reviewer

My Review:

We are back in Angel Falls for the second book in this fab series. I really enjoyed the small town feel in this book as the author makes it feel really intimate, kind of like you are transported there and watching it all happen. 
The characters in this book are amazing. I loved Ally for how real she was and although she was strong she was still very vulnerable. Nate comes along with his own baggage and at the start of the story was not very likeable, you do find yourself rooting for him though which took me by surprise. 
Ally and Nate's story is full of sweet moments, angst, a little drama and sizzling chemistry. If you want a small town romance or a light, sweet read then pick this up. You will not be disappointed!

My Review:
This was a second chance romance with a difference. It had heaps of heartbreak and angst, with a slight suspense and mystery running through and filled with some sweet moments too.

Well what can you say about the two main protagonists other than the fact that you wanted to bash their heads together at times. Dahlia I kind of got to a point, but Michael annoyed me lots. I got so confused with him because one min I hated him, because at times he seemed really childish, and then the next he said something so sweet it made you melt. They both had to work really hard to get their HEA and it was very sweet when they did. Their chemistry though was instantaneous and smoking! 

The story was in two parts, one of which took us out of Hartwell and to Boston, but for me this didn't detract from the story because you kind of needed Dahlia's history to know why she was like the way she was. The second part of the story had us back in Hartwell and had that mystery/suspense element. I was gripped to both parts of the story because I had the feeling that Dahlia had some pretty deep secrets that she was hiding and although it took a while to uncover them, it all made sense when I got there.

Overall this was a good addition to the series and I am looking forward to hearing from new characters in this small town.
