Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: The Missing Ingredient [Reality of Love 01] by Marika Ray!



Who knew a cooking show could get so messy?

Elle Fierro
All I have to do is appear as a judge on this cooking show in Hollywood and my restaurant will open to rave reviews. Pretty much my lifelong dream. What I absolutely shouldn’t do is sleep with one of the contestants and ruin everything I’ve worked so hard for. But he gives good hugs, makes me laugh, fills out a simple T-shirt like nobody’s business, and is sweeter than the maple syrup he dripped all over my naked body last night…

Austin Cox
I may have been drunk when I applied to be on that reality cooking show, which is why it’s hard to believe I’m here. What’s even harder to believe is that Elle, with her painted red lips and fiery disposition, is in my bed and making me forget I need to win this damn show to get my little sister out of the foster care system.

When Elle throws me under the bus to realize her dream, will our love burn out or will we find the missing ingredient to happiness?

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Risky Play [Red Card 01] by Rachel Van Dyken!


Publication date: 19th March 2019
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: What else can a virgin do when she’s ditched at the altar? Seattle heiress Mackenzie Dupont is treating herself to a single-girl honeymoon in Mexico and a desire to relinquish her innocence to a gorgeous one-night stand. Fake names. True pleasure. But when she wakes up alone, Mackenzie realizes just how much anger is left in her broken heart.

Suffering a tragic personal loss, pro soccer player Slade Rodriguez has his reasons for vanishing without a goodbye. Right or wrong, he’s blaming the beautiful and infuriating stranger he never wants to see again. They’re both in for a shock when Mackenzie shows up as his new personal assistant. And they both have a lot to learn about each other. Because they share more than they could possibly know, including a common enemy who’s playing his own games. And he’s not afraid to get dirty.

Now there’s only one way Mackenzie and Slade can win: to trust in each other and to stop hiding from the lies they’ve told, the secrets they’ve kept, the mistakes they’ve made, and the attraction that still burns between them.


I have to be honest and say that this is the first book that I've read from this author! I've known about her for years and met her at a book signing, but I hadn't sat down and read any of her books! I was then sent an email about this book and it sounded like my kind of read and the cover is stunning, so I decided to read it! After reading this book, I can say that I loved it a lot! I was drawn in right from the first chapter and I kept wanting to read on and find out what was going to happen next! I also loved the direction that the plot went in and that there were quite a few seriously hot scenes between the two main characters! This book also only took me a few sittings to read and I really tried to take my time reading it, but I failed lol! There wasn't any action or suspense in the plot, but I was expecting this because it's a contemporary romance book! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Mackenzie was the main female character, and in this book she had just been through a messy sort of break-up, and she was left feeling sad and disappointed! Mackenzie then wanted to find someone that really loved her and she definitely found him lol! I loved Mackenzie in this book! She came from a rich family, but didn't flaunt her money and she had a job and looked after herself! Mackenzie was also easy for me to connect with and she never gave up on her love interest, even when he was an ass to her! Slade was the main male character and love interest of Mackenzie! I loved Slade a lot at the beginning of this book! He was seriously hot and it was easy to see that he had feelings for Mackenzie! Slade then went through a horrible loss and this did change him for a time and he was mean to Mackenzie! He then changed again after realising that he was blaming Mackenzie for something that wasn't her fault! It was also easy to see that Mackenzie had changed Slade and it was easy to see how much Slade loved Mackenzie! I loved that this book was written from both Mackenzie and Slade's point of views! I was kinda expecting it to be after I read the synopsis, so I'm really happy that it was! It helped me connect and understand Mackenzie and Slade more and it allowed for more things to happen in the plot, especially as they didn't spend every minute of the book together and they were going through their own situations! I now can't wait to read the next book in this series! I'm assuming that it's going to focus on a secondary character as the ending of this book was left at the perfect place for Mackenzie and Slade! I'm not sure though because I can't find any information on the next book, so I guess I'll have to wait until closer to this book's release date to find out more information about the next booklol! The cover for this book is also absolutely stunning! I loved it as soon as I saw it and it really dew me to the book and made me want to check it out! The cover models are also the perfect Mackenzie and Slade! Big thank you to Rachel, Skyscape and Netgalley for an ARC of Risky Play!

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Trust the Push by Kaylee Ryan!


I’m making strides in the world of dirt late model racing. With back to back championships under my belt, I’m determined to win a third and be the youngest driver in history to do so. I’m going to make it happen my career is my focus. That is until the ultimate distraction in the form of a redheaded bombshell drops into my life.

I know nothing about racing, but when my boss comes to me with a special assignment, I take it. Now, here I am traveling from city to city engrossed in this new world. I never would have dreamed that this project would lead me to new friendships and ultimately finding love.

We made a deal, our time together would expire, and we would part ways. The only problem with that is I’m not so sure that’s what I want anymore. She’s pushing at my walls, and I’m trusting her, letting them fall.

It’s a shame we put an end date on our time together. I knew I would fall for him, but I never dreamed that those feelings would run this deep. The plan was to walk away, that’s what we agreed to, it’s just going to be harder than I thought. I need a new plan one that helps me move on without him.

Pre-Order Blitz & Giveaway: Dark Blood [Lethal Magic 01] by Nikki Hayes!



I'm Natasha.
Friends call me Tash. The world calls me loser.
No one knows I possess a deadly magic.

It was supposed to be a simple surveillance job, just like the zillion others I had run for my tough-guy benefactor, Tobias. An hour into it, I'm sitting with a dead body after barely surviving a warlock's rampage.

I thought things couldn't get any worse, but what did I know? Running point for Tobias or being witness to a murder was the least of my worries. Now I've been blackmailed into working with sexy paranormal cop Ian, and I must help him find what the warlock is up to before he destroys whatever is left of our world.

Piece of cake, right? Sure, if you ignored the dark magic I was born with. I just might save the world from a warlock's evil plans, but can I save it from the darkness that lies within me?

Release Blitz, Review & Giveaway: Now That I Found You [Heart's Compass 3.5] by Brooke O'Brien!


Publication date: 15th March 2019
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: All I've ever wanted was a family...

For so long, I had been walking through my life alone. Loss and heartbreak taught me not to wish for something because the moment you do, it can all be ripped away from you.

The day I met Callum, everything began to change. Falling in love with him and becoming his wife, I finally started to picture a future I never thought I would have.

Life has a way of testing me. My life is about to change in ways I never expected.

... now one man threatens to take it all away from me again.

I recently read an ARC of the third book in this series and I read the first two books last year! I then signed up for an ARC of this book as it continues the characters story from the first book! I have to start this review by saying that I did have to go back and re-read the book that starts the characters story off because I could only remember bits and pieces of what happened in it! I'm really happy that I did this because it enhanced my experience when I read this novella! After reading this novella, I can say that I loved it a lot! It also took me a few sittings to read because I wanted to try and make it last a little bit longer lol! The plot developed at a quick pace and quite a lot happened in it! I liked that there was a bit of action and suspense in it too! I wasn't expecting there to be, but it added to the plot! There was plenty of romance too and the romance allowed for a few seriously hot scenes! The characters were also amazing and made this novella even better! Ellie was the main female character, and I couldn't wait to go back inside Ellie's head and see how she was coping after what she went through in her full-length book! I loved Ellie in this novella! She had grown, but my heart also went out to Ellie in this novella because she was still trying to come to terms with what she went through in the first book and then she went through a traumatic situation in this novella! Ellie was strong though and she kept going and just wanted to be happy and content with her life! Callum was the main male character and love interest of Ellie! I loved Callum a lot in this novella! I mean, I loved him in his full-length book, but I loved him even more in this novella! He was so sweet towards Ellie and it was easy to see how much he loved and adored her! Callum was again very protective of Ellie and he just wanted her to be safe and not in any danger! Callum also worked hard and was perfect book boyfriend material! I loved that this novella was written from both Ellie and Callum's point of views! I was hoping that it was going to be because their full-length was written from both of their point of views, so I'm really happy that this novella was too! It helped me connect more with Ellie and Callum and it allowed for more things to happen in the plot! I now can't wait to read the next book in this series! I know that the next book is going to focus on different characters, but this has me even more excited to read it! I'm not sure when the next full-length book is going to release, but it says 2019 on Goodreads, so I'm assuming that it'll probably be later in the year! I'll definitely be reading it once it releases! I can't wait to check out this author's duet that's already released too because it's the only books that I haven't read from her yet lol! The cover for this book is also absolutely stunning! It definitely suits the feel of the book and it matches the other covers in the series perfectly too! I love it a lot and the cover models definitely suit Ellie and Callum! Big thank you to Brooke and Enticing Journey Book Promotions for an ARC of Now That I Found You!
