Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Intertwined [Redemption 02] by Sasha Brummer!

 
 
 
Amplified emotional highs have been my downfall. I’ve lost parts of myself to the dark corners of my heart because of the damage others have inflicted.
 
Whiskey might be able to ease the burn of one’s soul, but this time it might not be enough to survive. Instead of letting me wither in the cracks of my desiccated soul, he pushes me to appreciate the scars, instead of avoiding the bruises.
 
I’ve had more than my share of sanctioned hell, and I am through living in a limbo between who I should be and who I am. I won’t allow myself to become a casualty of my own mind again.
 
I am no longer carrying the obscurities of my life around with me when he chooses to stand and fight beside me.
 
With him, I finally see what it means to be living.

Review Blitz: Egomaniac by Vi Keeland!

 
Publication date: 16th January 2017
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.
I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.
He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.
Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.
Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.
I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.
I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind.
I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages.
The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.
And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

I was very excited about reading this book, so I squealed when I received an ARC! I've read a few of this author's books and I especially love her co-written books with Penelope Ward, so I couldn't wait to read this book! It sounded exactly like my kind of read too! I started my ARC of this book as soon as I received it and I loved every second of reading it! The sexual tension between the two main characters leaked off the pages and the plot developed at the perfect pace and had me hooked from start to finish! There were also some seriously hot scenes in the plot too and they were really, really hot! There wasn't any action or suspense in the plot, which I normally love in the plot of any book, but the romance was definitely enough to keep me wanting to read on and find out what was going to happen next! There was a bit of a love triangle aspect too, which added a lot to the plot, and a few twist and turns as well! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Emerie was the main female character and I loved her! I also felt really sorry for her because she had such bad luck in this book lol! Emerie had her head on straight though and she tried her best to do what she could in the situation she was in! Emerie also went through a lot of realisation in this book when it came to her feelings for a certain someone! I don't want to say too much about that lol! I definitely think that Emerie did the right thing and did was what was best for her! Emerie was also a little vixen at certain points in this book and she became more confident as the plot developed! Drew was the main male character and love interest of Emerie! Drew was seriously hot and was a guy that worked hard and had made a name and business for himself! Drew had also been through a lot and had trust issues and issues with letting people in! I could completely understand why Drew was like this after hearing his story! He had been through a lot and had been betrayed by people that meant a lot to him! Drew came a long way in this book and he went through a lot of realisation and opened himself up a lot! I just loved Drew and I loved the way he was with Emerie too! It was easy to see his feelings develop for her and he was protective of her too! I loved that this book was written from both Emerie and Drew's point of views! I wasn't sure if it was going to be as the synopsis makes it sound like it's only going to be written from the main female character's point of view! I'm really happy it was co-written though because it helped me connect more with Emerie and Drew and understand them more! It also allowed for more things to happen in the plot too! I can completely understand why this book is a standalone! I really wish that it wasn't a standalone lol, but the ending was left at the perfect place and it was very beautiful! I cried lol! I also can't wait to see what this author is going to release next! The cover for this book is seriously hot! It really suits the book and the model is the perfect Drew! Big thank you to Vi and Inkslinger PR for an ARC of Egomaniac!

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Hollywood Honkytonk [Kings of California 02] by Mia Hopkins!



Excerpt!

   “So, do you feel lucky?” she asked.
   “Always.”
   “How about tonight?”
   Was she flirting with him? Or making fun of him? Or both?
   “I always feel lucky,” he said again. “Tonight’s no different.”
   The breeze kicked up again. Jack caught her scent—herbal shampoo, almond lotion, and sun-warmed skin. He had never smelled anything so wholesome and appealing his whole life, and his body responded, stirring, tightening, hardening.
   He shifted his weight on the lounger, trying to get some control of himself while simultaneously trying to breathe in the essence of her, his high school crush, this glorious, ghostly woman come back to haunt him again.
   God, I want to be haunted by you again.
   He leaned forward a millimeter, testing the waters. She latched her dark eyes on him and parted her pillowy lips in invitation.
   Gently, so as not to spook her, he reached up, traced his fingertips across her cheekbone, and cupped her cheek in his hand. She shivered, staring at him as if he’d cast a spell on her. He leaned down farther and looked at her lips. With the pad of his thumb, he touched the tiny divot at the center of her cupid’s bow, stroking it gently back and forth. He had never touched anything so velvety soft in his entire life.
   Desire, lust, and adrenaline coursed through him all at once. His heart kicked like a racehorse against its gates.
   The words came out on their own, soft and ragged. “Can I kiss you?” 

With nothing but her dog, her guitar, and her cowboy boots, songwriter Riley Marion arrives in Los Angeles on the run from her abusive ex. A quiet job teaching music sounds perfect, but her low-key lifestyle is threatened when she reunites with a sexy old flame—now an up-and-coming celebrity who’s constantly dogged by paparazzi.

Charming and driven, Jack Lamont is a Hollywood actor on the rise to stardom. Ready to outgrow his playboy reputation, he’s happy to leave the hard partying to his entourage. Romantic entanglements? Jack’s not interested. At least, not until he gets tangled up with the one who got away—a smoking-hot woman whose memory has haunted him for the last ten years.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Making Bad Choices by Rita Stradling!

 
Excerpt!

   “If I think you might disappear on me, I’ll just be thinking about that all night, and I don’t want to have to deal with that shit. Just not worth going for me,” Culter said.
   Wow, he made me feel like I was his odious chore, that was nice. I found it ridiculous that he was giving me a hard time about going off with people.
   “Just go do your thing, Culter, I’ll be fine.” I might have put a fair dose of insinuation into my words, but the whole conversation was bugging me. I stood, gathering my makeup from the floor as I did.
   “What’s my thing?”
   “Like I know,” I mumbled.
   “Sounds like you think you know,” he said. He stood too, stepping a little closer.
   “It doesn’t matter.” I threw my stuff onto my bed.
   He stepped in even closer, way too close, and smirked down at me. “Come on, I want to know. What’s my thing, Cassie?”
   I licked my lips, before saying, “Threesomes.”
   His smirk only grew. “Is that your thing, too?”
   “What do you think?” I rolled my eyes, but I felt embarrassed.
   He looked like he was going to laugh at me. “I’m not going to Spencer’s party for a threesome.”
   “I wasn’t saying that.” I felt my face flushing as I talked to him and I wanted to step away, but at the same time, I didn’t.
   He reached up and wound a lock of my hair around his finger. “That was my first threesome, and it wasn’t really one. And it wasn’t my thing. Spooning later, though, that was my thing.”
   I looked up into his blue gaze, wondering if he was saying what I thought he was saying. Or had he spooned those girls? I looked away, deciding that I didn’t want to know. Well, I wanted to know, but I shouldn’t know. I was all tangled up in my thoughts, thoughts I shouldn’t even be having in the first place.
   Culter’s phone rang, puncturing the tension building between us, and I was very glad for it. Culter flirted as easily as he breathed, and I had to remember that. I had to constantly remind myself of that. I liked flirting, but this didn’t feel just like innocent flirting, this felt dangerous.
   I stepped away, grabbing his phone off the floor and handing it to him. Looking at the screen, I said, “It’s Spencer.” Then I walked out and left him alone in my bedroom.

Culter Fuller came back into my life on the day my mother died, as if losing my mother wasn’t bad enough.

We hated each other since childhood. Well, I hated him. He had a very different story.

When I moved to my dad’s house to finish my last semester of high school, we went from bitter enemies to. . . something else. He was suddenly everywhere, occupying my space, determined to pull me into his life, filling me with thoughts I knew were wrong.

I knew that soon we would cross a line that should never be crossed.

I knew crossing that line could have very serious consequences; because Culter Fuller wasn’t just any irresistible boy, Culter Fuller was my stepbrother.

But, I was always very bad at making the right choices.
