Release Blitz! Lachlan's Protege By V.F. Mason



She never knew nightmares.
Until she became mine. 

She was a ballerina.
He was a serial killer. 

She ran away from him.
He caught her.

She begged for mercy.
He gave her none.

She was an angel.
He was a monster. 

She wanted to escape.
He wanted to destroy her.

They were at war. 
And only one of them would win.

I swear I think V.F. Mason has tapped into my deep dark soul because Lachlan’s Protégé was another dark romance that I didn’t want to put down. I am purposely keeping this review fairly short because it would be easy to give spoilers away and I don’t want to do that. This book could trigger some people so if you aren’t a fan of dark romances or know that you have triggers take care when reading Lachlan’s Protégé.

Lachlan and Valencia are dark and light, bad and good, tormentor and victim, and monster and angel. The pull between them is intense, the hate, the emotions, the heartache, the pain all intensify what happens between them. Now Valencia for the first part of the book got on my nerves a bit, her attitude just didn’t make me want to like her character, and while by the end of the book I liked her I wondered if I would. Lachlan, well when you start to read about his past, you wonder why he isn’t even more of a monster.  The things that happen will keep you on the edge of your seat.

I already need another book by V.F. Mason and I just finished this one. If you are a fan of dark romances, I think Lachlan’s Protégé will be one you will like. 












V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her momma over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied filmmaking and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn't happen. 
Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it.When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favorite authors.

Release Boost! A Kiss To Tell By Willow Winters



I didn’t need anyone to tell me, I knew he was forbidden with a single glance.
He was a boy I should be afraid of and definitely a boy I should never want. No matter how much neither of those statements were true.

From the first time I saw him, Sebastian had a hard stare that pinned me in place.  And, years later, it hasn’t softened.

We lived on the same street, went to the same school, though he was a year ahead.  Even so close, he was untouchable.
He was bad news and I was the sad girl who didn’t belong.

One night changed everything. 
We both had secrets.  We both saw the pain in each other’s eyes. 
That gaze that gave me chills, turned to a lust-filled haze that heated every inch of me. 
But that didn’t change who he was.  A man who would take everything from me.

ARC Review! The Chase By Elle Kennedy



The Chase (Briar U, #1)Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.
And that his best friend has a crush on me.

And that I just moved in with them.

Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?

I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?

He knows where to find me.

The Chase by Elle Kennedy is the first book in the Briar U series and I absolutely LOVED it. I loved Sumer and Fitz, I loved the angst, I loved the chemistry, I loved the buildup even when I wanted to shake Fitz and scream for him to stop being an idiot, I loved the other characters, basically I loved it all if you can’t tell.

Summer has crushed on Fitz for years, but when she over hears him talking about her, her heart breaks because of what he says. She transferred to Briar U for, well I won’t say why because you need to read the book to find out, and her start has not been a great one. Fitz adds to it by hurting her feelings more than once, don’t get me wrong I loved Fritz but boy did I want to kick him more than once. Fitz and Summer balance each other out, they have amazing chemistry especially in the bedroom.

The Chase has me excited for more books in this new series. I can’t wait to see who all gets books because if I am being honest, I want them all to have books, but I am a book whore after all and can’t get enough. Elle Kennedy is an author that I love and an automatic buy. The Chase is one book that needs to be on your TBR list for sure.





Review! Knight By Giulia Lagomarsino

Knight (Reed Security, #4)Knight

I was dishonorably discharged from the military after I killed my superiors. They were profiting off soldier’s
deaths and I wouldn’t stand for it. They were righteous kills and I stand by what I did. I was sentenced to prison,
but Pappy made sure I never saw the inside of a prison cell. Ever since then, I’ve been working as a gun for hire,
taking on any job that rids the world of the scum of the earth. Then I met up with Pappy again and all my plans
went to shit. I found myself working for the good guys once again and ended up in the hands of an angel.

Kate
I’m a doctor and I own my own practice in town. I never wanted to be a part of the crazy schedules of the hospital
and wanted to have a personal connection with my patients. That started to change a little when my cousin,
Cole called me to take care of a woman he found in the woods.


I hate to admit this but I struggled with Knight. For whatever reason I just wasn’t pulled into the story like I had hoped I would be. I just couldn’t connect with Knight and Kate, I didn’t feel like they connected and I think that is one reason why I couldn’t connect with them either, the back and forth was exhausting at times. The thing is, I saw the potential in both the story and the characters so me struggling with this one is sort of boggling my mind because this is the kind of book that I normally enjoy.  Knight isn’t a bad book so please don’t take it that way, it is good but just didn’t work for me as much as I had hoped.


Book Tour! Rules Of Friendship By C.A. Harms



As a guy, the number one rule to being best friends with a girl should be simple…
Never, and I do mean never, fall in love with her. 
Oh and you should never fantasize about her either.
Believe me, that situation can get messy really fast and leave you with nothing but one hell of an awkward mess on your hands—literally.
Reese and I have been through everything together; our bond is deep. But I am going down fast, and I fear there is no way to stop it. I spend most of my time hiding my body’s reaction to her because like I said: just friends.
But things are changing. We are changing. 
I no longer see her as just Reese, my best friend. When I look at her now, I see a gorgeous woman that takes my breath away. I see my future. But what if she doesn’t see me the same way? 
I can’t risk losing her… 
The fear of screwing everything up is excruciating. So that’s why I have chosen to stick to the rules. The Rules of Friendship that is. 
She was off limits. Plain and simple. 
But then in she walks wearing her tiny shorts and those tight tops. Come on, a guy can only have so much restraint before he caves 


Rules Of Friendship was just what I was needing to read when I picked this one up. I love a good friend to lover’s romance, especially when the characters are best friends and both feel more than friendship feelings towards the other person. I have said it before and I will say it again because I truly believe that if you have a friendship before dating it just strengthens your relationship, or maybe it is just the romantic side of me that hopes people love their best friend. Okay enough mushy stuff from me.

Reese and Dawson have been best friends all of their lives. The bond between them is something they never want to lose. Each want more than friendship, but of course they don’t voice those feelings because both think it would break their friendship and neither want that to ever happen. Both silently keep their feelings to themselves until they can’t deny their feelings any more. The chemistry between Reese and Dawson is hot and explosive.

When something happens, neither Reese nor Dawson handled the situation correctly. Is it is misunderstanding or is it something more? You know the drill, I am not going to spoil it for you so read the book to find out. I can understand both reactions but sometimes things aren’t always so clear at first, and that can do more damage than you think. Did I get frustrated with Reese at times? Yes, but not an overly big amount. I wanted her to stop and just listen instead of jumping to conclusions but then again, I wish Dawson would have tried harder as well.

I really liked Rules Of Friendship and hope we get books for Reese and Dawson’s friends. This is one that should be on your TBR list for sure!










C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn't always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.
She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.
