Release Blitz & Giveaway: Steele [Daring the Kane Brothers 02] by Kelly Gendron!


She dared me to take her on and that’s exactly what I plan to do…

I'm no stranger to daring things
However, there are a few stunts even I'm smart enough not to try
Jaylyn Rigsby is one of them
But when the raven-haired beauty
The insurance company sent to oversee my stunts
Dared me to take her on, well, now..
Challenge accepted ~ STEELE

My next assignment has a reputation of cutting through the red tape to get what he wants
But I'm good at my job
Steele Kane isn't going to get whatever he wants
Even, if one of the things he wants is me
Case closed ~ JAYLYN

Will Jaylyn be the first to tame this overbearing stuntman, or will Steele hold out and get what he wants?

Blog Tour: A Change of Pace [Northern Lights 03] by Freya Barker!


Publication date: 16th July 2018
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: Once a man who lived by the letter of the law.

Newt Tobias will do anything for his little girl. Even take early retirement, sell his city home, and move to cottage country, hoping that the simpler life will provide a better balance for his troubled teenage daughter.

Yet, not long after they’ve settled, he finds himself toe-to-toe with a stubborn, fiery tempered woman with pretty brown eyes.

Once a recluse preferring to live alone.

Working with troubled adolescents, Frederique Marchand doesn’t suffer fools and won’t put up with bullies. Especially handsome strangers like Newt who think they can run roughshod over her. She loves her work, but on her own time she much prefers the company of her menagerie of animals.

But with the welfare of a teenager at stake, she must put aside rocky first impressions and work with a man who needs her as much as she’ll come to need him.


I read the first book in this series just after it released and then the second book just before I read this book! I really enjoyed the first two books, so I couldn't wait to read this book, even though the books in this series can be read as standalones! After reading this book, I can say that I loved it a lot! I was drawn in right from the first few chapters and I couldn't put it down until I had finished it! The plot also had quite a few twist and turns in it that really shook things up and kept me wanting to read on! These twist and turns added a bit of action and suspense too, which I loved! The romance in this book was also very beautiful and I loved it more and more as it progressed! The romance allowed for a few seriously hot scenes between the two main characters too! This book also ended beautifully and was left at the perfect place for the characters! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Newt was the main male character, and in this book he was just trying to do the best he could for his daughter, Millie, and give her the best life he could! This made me have a lot of respect for him because Newt was dealing with a lot and went through a lot with Millie! I loved the was that Newt was with his love interest too! It was easy to see how much he loved her! Newt was also very protective of his love interest and daughter and he showed this several times in this book! Frederique 'Freddy' was the main female character and love interest of Newt! I loved Freddy a lot in this book! There was something very likeable about her and I found her easy for me to connect with! I loved that Freddy had a lot of animals too! She really loved her animals and couldn't say no to looking after more lol! I loved the way that Freddy was with Newt and Millie too! She supported the two of them a lot and brought a lot of happiness into their lives! They taught her a lot too and they made quite the team! I loved that this book was written from both Newt and Freddy's point of views! I was hoping that it was going to be as the first two books in this series were written from both characters point of views, so I'm happy that this book was too! It helped me connect and understand both characters more and it allowed for more things to happen in the plot, especially as both characters didn't spend every minute together! I'm also not sure if there's going to be another book in this series! I really hope there is going to be, but I can't find any information on another book, so I'm not sure! I would love another book though and really hope that there is one! I still have a few of this author's other books to read though, so I'm definitely going to be checking those ones out and giving them a read! The cover for this book is also perfect for it and I love it a lot! Like the other covers in the series, it matches the feel of the book so well and the model on the front is the perfect Newt! Big thank you to Freya for an ARC of A Change of Pace and to Enticing Journey Book Promotions for having me on the Blog Tour!

Blog Tour: A Bad Boy Stole My Bra by Lauren Price!


Publication date: 12th July 2018
Paperback edition: -
Source: Paperback
Rating: 5 stars

Synopsis: Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to find your seriously dishy new neighbour dangling out of your window. And not only is he dangling out of your window, he’s also clutching your tattiest bra in his hand. 

What. The. Actual. Fudge. 

When notorious bad boy and new kid on the block, Alec Wilde, moves in next door to Riley, sparks fly. Alec is everything that Riley despises – he’s cocky, obnoxious and annoyingly handsome – and after their ‘unconventional’ introduction, Riley is determined to get her own back. 

It’s game on. 

A furious prank war ensues, and it’s clear Alec has met his match in Riley. But behind the playful facade, Riley is barely holding it together. Her family is struggling to cope after her cousin’s death, her cheating ex-boyfriend is back in town and maybe, just maybe, she’d like more from Alec than banter and practical jokes.

I received an email from the publisher of this book asking me if I'd like to be on the blog tour! After reading the synopsis and seeing the cover, I was very intrigued, so I signed up and started reading my ARC as soon as I received it! After reading this book I can say that I freaking loved it! I was drawn in right from the first chapter and I found myself reading a few more chapters every chance I had! This meant that this book only took me a few sittings to read lol! The plot also kept me hooked all the way through and I loved what happened in it! The plot also developed at a nice pace and I loved the bits of humour in it! The romance was also very sweet and developed at the perfect pace to keep me interested! There wasn't any action and suspense in the plot, but this book was a nice, clean young adult book! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Riley was the main character, and in this book she was actually more shy than I was expecting her to be and she was more reserved! Riley definitely wasn't shy when it came to her love interest though and she was very straight with him lol! Riley did become quite flustered when it came to her love interest once she started developing feelings for him, but this was because she wasn't sure how to handle those feelings! I connected with Riley all the way through this book too! Alec was the love interest of Riley in this book! I loved Alec a lot in this book! He wasn't only a very funny character, but he showed a much softer side to him as well, especially when it came to Riley! I loved the way that Alec was with Riley too! He showed her how to have a good time and he loved to wind her up and spend time with her! Alec was also loving towards his sister and mother and this made me have a lot of respect for him! This book was only written from Riley's point of view, which I was expecting after I read the synopsis! I loved that this book was only written from Riley's point of view! I mean I wouldn't have minded a few chapters to have been written from Alec's point of view, but I can completely understand why it was only written from Riley's point of view because it was her story! I was still able to connect and understand all the other characters too! I can also completely understand why this book is a standalone! I really wish that it wasn't because I would love to read more on Riley and Alec, but the ending was left at the perfect place for the characters! I now can't wait to see what book this author is going to release next! well, I hope she release more books lol! I'll definitely be reading anymore books she releases! The cover for this book is also absolutely perfect for this book! I love it a lot and I love the bright colours and how well it suits the book! It would definitely make me click on it if I saw it whilst scrolling through Amazon too! Big thank you to Lauren and Ink Road for an ARC of A Bad Boy Stole My Bra and for having me on the Blog Tour!

Cover Reveal: Lightning Boy by Amy J. Heart!



Lightning never strikes the same place twice. Unless he’s a boy called L.

My name is Eden and I only want one thing in life—and it isn’t to have sex with some guy I’ve never met in front of three creepy businessmen. But when dirty-copper Coop, who holds the deed to my family’s farm, says jump—I ask how high. And ex-street kid L is nothing like I expect him to be.

He’s so much worse.

Now I want three things.

My dad’s farm back.
To know why a guy as hot as L has never slept with a girl before.
Coop to die a painful death.

And there’s a fourth. Here’s a hint…
It starts with the letter L.
Just like this story does.

Is happy-ever-after possible when your meet-cute happens in front of three voyeurs in business suits?

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Heartless [Merciless 02] by Willow Winters!


At first, his words were harsh and his touch cold.
I didn’t want to be in his presence any more than he wanted me there.
I knew he was a dangerous man and he could destroy me if only he wanted to.

That’s not what he wanted though. It’s not what he needed.
It’s not what I desired either.

It’s so easy to get lost in the touch of a man who’s powerful and unattainable.
A man who wants for nothing … except me.
Soft touches and stolen glances made my blood heat and my heart beat in a way I never knew it could.

Yes, it’s easy to fall into a haze of lust and desire.
But there’s a reason his reputation is one of a heartless man.
And I should have known better.
