Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Inevitable [Key West Series 02] by C.A. Harms!



Harper Jameson, had built the necessary walls to keep her heart safe. Never again would she allow herself to be weak and vulnerable.

Confident and full of attitude.

A mask she wore that many fell for.

Except Easton Black.
 
He was equally confident, cocky and knew what he wanted.

Determined.
 
Things he wanted rarely escaped his grasp. He was immune to the fa├žade Harper had created.

She was intriguing.
 
It was inevitable and Harper could sense that there was no way out. Easton Black would no doubt be the man who could change everything.
 
People aren’t always as strong as they appear to be on the outside…

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Meeting the Step [The Step 01] by Ash Adams!







Him: When I returned from vacation my father dropped the news that he was remarrying. I would have a stepsister but I didn't want one. I told him he was twenty years too late for the whole sibling thing. I hated the thought of her until we met and then I couldn't get her out of my head.

Her: When my mother told me she was going to remarry, I died inside. She moved us to the suburbs in a perfect little neighborhood but I didn't want to be there. I knew my mother's fiance had a son that was close to my age but I didn't want anything to do with him until he rescued me from my boyfriend. Somehow with his prince charming good looks he had become my knight in shining armor.

Max and Chelsea couldn't deny their instant attraction, which meant trouble.

Their parents would never approve, but who said they had to know.

It all started with a kiss and one weekend alone…

Cover Reveal: Ultimate Temptations [Temptations 01] by K. Anne!







Ella Wilkins only wants one thing out of life—to graduate from high school and escape her hometown where everyone knows her and the dark cloud surrounding her family.

Everything is going according to plan until two new students show up at her school. Asher and Cain, identical twin brothers, take an interest in her, and she can’t help but wonder why two gorgeous brothers would want anything to do with a social outcast like her.

As she gets closer to the brothers, she’s torn between the two. Asher’s kindness pulls her in and comforts her while Cain both tempts and infuriates her with his sarcastic and devious ways.

When she learns who they truly are—or rather, what they are—things start to get a little tricky.

Ella might not know it, but she is the key to winning the ultimate battle between heaven and hell. Both realms want her, and neither is willing to let her go.

She’s torn between the ultimate temptations of heaven and hell. Which side will she choose?

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Run [NOLA Zombie 01] by Gillian Zane!

 
Publication date: 26th May 2015
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 3.5/4 stars
Synopsis: Zombies are on the loose in New Orleans and of all the End of the World scenarios, Alexis Winter wasn’t prepared for this one. But, an apocalypse is an apocalypse and she should have this covered. She has been “prepping” for the last three years. The problem is location and timing. She’s stuck downtown and she has to get to her house on the outskirts of the city so she can get her supplies and bug-in (for the “non-preppers” this means hole up and stay safe).

Agreeing to work on a Saturday is now coming back to bite her on the ass big time. Hopefully, it won’t be a literal bite by the walking dead.

Luck favors the prepared, and as luck would have it, it comes in the form of the ridiculously hot Blake Miller. Former military man, current mercenary, Blake Miller, the man with the plan, his goal: steal a boat and trek up the Mississippi until they find safety. Alexis thinks this is a great plan and she decides to team up with Blake. The two team up in unexpected ways as they find they can’t keep their hands off of each other even when the world is falling down around them.

Can Alexis and Blake survive the end of the world, and if they do make it through the night, find a place that is safe and secure? Can their newfound attraction lead them down the road to love or heartbreak?

Zombies, sex, romance and carnage…you can’t get any better than this.


I thought that this book was going to be a full length book, but it's actually the first novella of a three part novella series! I normally don't read a novella/serial series until all the parts have released, but I signed up to review this one, so I knew I had to read it and now I impatiently have to wait for the others to release lol! I was drawn to this novella though as I love zombie books, and romance and zombies are even better lol! I read this novella in a few sittings in a day because of its length! It had action and plenty of romance in it! It maybe had too much romance if you ask me lol, and the sex scenes went in a direction that I wasn't expecting! I do have to admit that I found it a bit weird lol, but I think it was just because I didn't expect them to go in that direction! The plot had plenty of action in it and quite a lot happened in it for the length of it! I did enjoy it and I liked that it had plenty of gore and action in it! It also developed at a good pace to keep me interested! The characters were also awesome! Alexis was the main character, and she was kick-ass in this book right from the first chapter! We're introduced to her just as the zombie apocalypse has started and she went right into action and she knew what to do! I understood why she was like this after I heard her story! I mean, what she had went through must have been a horrible experience! Alexis also held her own in this book for a lot of it, which impressed me! I do wish she hadn't hidden behind her love interest as much, but hey, I would do the same lol! She also became more confident as the novella progressed and was a good main character! Blake was the love interest of Alexis, and he was seriously hot! He was also a kick-ass character too and had plenty of fighting experience! I found it a little hard to connect with Blake for a lot of this novella though! I think it was maybe because the novella was only written from Alexis' point of view! I'm hoping the next novella might be written from dual point of view, but I'm not sure if it will be! Blake also became a bit of a dick to Alexis right at the end of this novella! In a way I understood why because of the information he was given, but in a way I couldn't understand it! I hope he redeems himself as this series continues! I have to admit though as much as I liked Alexis and Blake, I did think that their relationship developed way too fast! I mean, they met and slept together only hours later! It was just way too fast for my liking and I would have liked their relationship to have developed slower! Saying that, I'm looking forward to reading the next novella in this series, even though I didn't love, love this one! The ending of this novella was left at an awesome place, which has me intrigued to find out what's going to happen next! The cover for this novella suits it really well! It has a zombie and romantic feel to it, which suits the book! Big thank you to Gillian for an ARC of Run and to Alpha Author Promotions for having me on the Blog Tour!

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: And Then Forever [Fortune's Island 01] by Shirley Jump!

 
Welcome to Fortune’s Island, where the only rule is to follow your heart.

Love is an extravagance Darcy Williams can’t afford. She prefers the simple life, which includes waitressing at The Love Shack and avoiding temptation. But when a forbidden part of her past steps off the ferry, her safe, guarded existence is turned upside down.

Kincaid Foster has never gotten over his first love. When he sees the wild, beautiful blonde again, dancing her way around The Love Shack, the memories of Darcy’s soft skin, gentle touch, and heated kisses come rushing back. As the privileged son of a wealthy family, Kincaid was too young to stand up to his overbearing father when he and Darcy were together. Now, he’s back on the island—free of the family shackles—and the chiseled, big-time lawyer wants a second chance.

But, Darcy made a promise to keep a secret from Kincaid—a secret that is now a six-year-old girl who looks just like her daddy. If Kincaid finds out about their daughter, Darcy could lose everything. But, she can’t resist the man who stole her heart all those years ago. And it doesn’t take long before both of them realize that anything can happen on a hot summer night.

UK Blog Tour: Moonlight on Nightingale Way [On Dublin Street 06] by Samantha Young!


Publication date: 2nd June 2015
Paperback edition: 336 pages
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4.5 stars
Synopsis:
Logan from Echoes of Scotland Street is back with his own smoldering story, as the New York Times bestselling On Dublin Street series returns…

Logan spent two years paying for the mistakes he made. Now, he’s ready to start over. He has a great apartment, a good job, and plenty of women to distract him from his past. And one woman who is driving him to distraction…

Grace escaped her manipulative family by moving to a new city. Her new life, made to suit her own needs, is almost perfect. All she needs to do is find her Mr. Right—or at least figure out a way to ignore her irresistible yet annoying womanizer of a neighbor.

Grace is determined to have nothing to do with Logan until a life-changing surprise slowly begins turning the wild heartbreaker into exactly the kind of strong, stable man she’s been searching for. Only just when she begins to give into his charms, her own messy past threatens to derail everything they’ve worked to build…


I'm a big, big fan of this series and this author, so when I received an email from the UK publisher about being on the UK Blog Tour, there was no way I was saying no lol! I received an e-ARC that day and started reading that night! I loved this book! It did go in a completely different direction to what I was expecting, but the direction was different and took me by surprise! I enjoyed it as well because it was such an unexpected twist and the synopsis didn't give anything away! The plot was amazing! It was so beautiful at times and then there were quite dark aspects as well! It had a bit of everything in it! The romance in it was also seriously hot! I was also a bit desperate to keep reading on find out what was going to happen next and this book took me a few sittings to read! I also loved the epilogue! It had a bit for each couple in the series, which was amazing! The characters were amazing! Grace was the main character, and she was a woman who had been belittled and by her mother and father! This made her have low self-esteem and feel insecure about relationships! I felt really sorry for Grace when I heard her story and heard about her childhood! She was an amazing person though and she managed to break away from the people who were pulling her down and make a life for herself! She was so strong and I connected so well with her! She also helped her love interest so much! He received a shock, and Grace was there for him all the way through this book, and he was there for her too! Logan was the love interest of Grace, and he was in the last book in this series! I loved him in that book and couldn't wait to read his story! Logan seriously impressed me in this book! He was given a huge shock, but with the help of Grace, he was able to come to terms with it and do the right thing! He really stepped up the mark and took on the role he needed too! Logan was also so hot with Grace! He was really protective of her and I could see that he had deep feelings for her! He showed this again and again in the book lol! I just loved him and he's definitely on my book boyfriend list lol! There was a part of me that thought that this book was going to be written from both Grace and Logan's point of views, but it was actually only written from Grace's! Don't get me wrong, I liked it being written from only Grace's, but it would have been really interesting to have gotten inside Logan's head and see how he was feeling at certain points! I'm really sad that this book is the last book in this series! I've loved this series and it was quite emotional to say goodbye to a bunch of characters that have me laugh, cry and fall completely in love with them! I'm excited to see what this author's next release will be though! The UK cover for this book suits it so well! I love how much it suits the others in the series too! I love the US cover as well! Big thank you to Piatkus for an ARC of Moonlight on Nightingale Way and for having me on the UK Blog Tour!

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: The Girl I Was Before [Falling 03] by Ginger Scott!



I’m the selfish one. I suppose that’s the nicest thing people say about me. I’ve heard the other things, too. “Paige Owens is a pretty girl with nothing else to offer. She’s just a good time at a party. She’s stupid, heartless, cold and useless. All she cares about is getting a guy to look at her. Why would anyone want to be her friend?”

Some of those things are true. Others were true. They’re all hurtful.

None of it matters.

I’m ready to make the hard choices. I’m ready to face the consequences. I’m ready to be the girl I was before, and I’m done being the one who lost her way.

I’m ready to become the girl Houston Orr sees when he looks at me.

Houston isn’t a star athlete. He doesn’t play in a band. He’s never going to be president, and his life is so far away from simple and easy it isn’t even funny. He wasn’t part of my plan. But I’m starting to think plans are overrated, and maybe our stories are what we make them. And mine depends entirely on me, and the choices I make…starting now.

Houston is my fairytale. He’s perfectly imperfect. He’s poetry and life. He’s truth and heartbreak, all rolled up in a tall body with dark hair, broad shoulders and green eyes that lull me into submission. He’s nothing I ever thought I wanted, but the very thing I need. He’s the only guy I’ve ever really loved, and he thinks I’m a princess. I fell into him, and now I’m holding on.

But sometimes life takes away our ability to choose. Sometimes…things aren’t in your control. Sometimes, it hurts to be selfless. My only hope is that when it comes time to choose, I get it right.

Welcome to my once upon a time and wish for happily ever after.
