Blog Tour! Ruthless Princess By Rachel Van Dyken


RuthPrincess_eBook_HighRes
The enemy of my enemy is my friend…

I never thought my father would ask this of me, to become the second generation at Eagle Elite University, to rule with an iron fist, and to take care of anyone who gets in our way.
But ever since the incident.
Ever since Him.
There’s been a war in our little clique.
After all, a house divided cannot stand.
He’s the problem, not me.
He used to kiss me like I was his oxygen.
Now he looks at me like I’m his poison.
But we both drank it, again and again, never believing there would be a day when our love would start a war.
And our friendship would shatter into a million pieces.
Then again, the worst thing you could do in the mafia is hang on to hope that your life will be normal.
The second worst thing?
Fall in love with your best friend.
Enemy.
And heir to the Nicolasi throne.

I have tried to write my review of Ruthless Princess for days and I couldn’t find the right words to express how much I absolutely LOVED this book. Even now, I don’t think I will put into words the feelings that Serena and Junior pulled from my heart and soul. Now while Ms. Van Dyken has said you don’t need to read the Eagle Elite series first, and technically you don’t as this is a new series, as someone who loves the series I think you feel more, understand more and remember the events that lead to what happens in Ruthless Princess. Blood In. No Out. That oath is EVERYTHING!

I laughed, I sobbed, I felt my heart and soul cracking in two. Serena and Junior, GAH these two had me on the edge of my seat more than once. Without spoiling anything, just know that you will be on a wild ride with not only the sexual chemistry between them, but the hate, the way they circle around each other and the consequences of their actions and lack thereof. I NEED more, I CRAVE more, more Serena and Junior, more of the cousins, just more of it all.

Ruthless Princess was one of my most anticipated reads for 2020 and it did not disappoint!

Blog Tour! Dirty Charmer By Emma Chase

I get to guard that beautiful body for the next two weeks, up close and personal. Fuck—I love my job.
Dirty Charmer by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Emma Chase, is LIVE!

Dirty Charmer FOR WEB
Abigail Haddock is stunning, sensible, and some would say . . . stuffy. But it’s not really her fault. She was raised in one of Wessco’s oldest, most affluent, aristocratic families—“stuffy” is their middle name. So is successful. Abby’s working overtime to distinguish herself as a top-notch physician, just as her family legacy demands.

She doesn’t have time for nonsense.
Tommy Sullivan’s all about nonsense.
Sure, he’s an elite bodyguard with lethal skills and co-owner of the renowned, S&S Securities Firm—protector of the wealthy and titled. But he’s also rowdy, fun and thoroughly irresistible.
Tommy knows how to have a good time, and he’s never seen someone more in need of a good time than Abby. The lass needs long, wet, filthy kisses—STAT—and he’s just the man for the job.
It doesn’t take long for a wildly sexy, sinfully satisfying, no-strings attached arrangement to turn into something more. Something sweet and addictive and real. But Tommy and Abby are too royally stubborn to admit it.
Opposites attract, everyone knows that. But can they last—can they love…for forever?


Dirty Charmer is the perfect blend of sweet, funny and sexy moments. I literally did not put it down once I started it. I loved the chemistry between Tommy and Abigail, their banter and the sexual chemistry was explosive. I must say the whole bodyguard angle just made me think Tommy even sexier. I loved Abigail as well, while she may comes across as stuffy and having a stick up her ass, she has a fire to her that you wouldn’t expect. Now I am not saying at times she didn’t make me want to shake her, because she did but at the same time I understood her due to how she was raised.

I really hope that Emma Chase will continue writing more for this series, I am so not ready to let them go. I love royal romances, must be the lover of fairytales in me but I can’t help but wish for everyone to have their fairytale ending.

Release Blitz! Crowned By Fate By Amo Jones


CROWNED BY FATE (Crowned Duet #2) by Amo Jones
Release Date: May 18th

Crowned by Fate (Crowned #2)

Synopsis:
He asked me to love him, so I engraved his name onto my heart.
He craved my loyalty, so I let him feast on my soul.
I wanted a husband, but he gave me a monster.
So, I made it my pet.
The lines between what was real and what wasn’t were blurred.
Our story was a lie.
Until now. 
THIS IS BOOK 2. CROWNED BY HATE MUST BE READ FIRST.

After the way Crowned By Hate ended, and the two year wait for Crowned By Fate, this book whore couldn’t wait to read more about Isa and Bryant. Let me say this before going into my review. If you thought your mind was fucked with Crowned By Hate, well that is child’s play for what you will feel during Crowned By Fate but trust me it is so worth it!

I devoured this book in a day. I was consumed to figure out what was real, what was fake and what was so fucked up that I couldn’t stop reading. What you think you know, you don’t and what you don’t know you would never have seen coming. This is one of the best if not best mind fuck, keep you on the edge of your seats books I have ever read. The drama, the angst, the suspense, the secrets, the danger will consume your every thought, heartbeat and breathe from the very first page until the last words.

Isa and Bryant are even more intense than ever before. You thought the hate between them before was extreme, once secrets are revealed, discoveries are made, and the truth is known, you don’t know if Isa and Bryant are going to come out in one piece, if they make it out at all that is. God, more than once I wanted to bash Bryant with a baseball bat over his head, especially when he, well I can’t spoil it for you, but just know if I could have gotten my hands on him he would be dead as well as some others.

What Isa went through would have broken a lesser woman, but she is so much stronger than I first gave her credit for. She has a strength that matches Bryant but I think at times she could be even more vicious than he could be. These two broke my heart only to mend it back together and repeat over and over again. I think I lost a piece if my soul while reading Crowned By Fate, and I will willingly lose that piece of my soul because trying to explain not only how much I loved this book and how it made me feel is impossible with simple words.


Amo Jones has once again made me bow to her dark side and reminds this book whore of why I love her writing so much. The depth of her characters, the way she weaves tales so you don’t know what to believe and the added sexiness makes her books, and especially Crowned By Fate, a must read.

Release Blitz! May Contain Wine By Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: May 12


This is for charity. This is for fun. You are a professional. You can do it.



Those are the words that Calloway Alvarez chants to herself as she watches all the large men gather into the small room where she’ll be doing the interviews for her employer—Hero Magazine.

Honestly, she’s convinced herself that she can’t accomplish the task at hand.

That is until she hears his voice, and her head turns to see him standing there.

Louis Spurlock. Greek god. SWAT officer. Keeper of her secrets. Ultimate fantasy. Man who will break her heart.
***
Louis Spurlock has been playing nice.

He’s been biding his time, giving Calloway the space she thinks she needs.

But then he sees her taking photos of his friends in all states of undress, talking to them all as if they’re best friends, and that little thread of control he’d been managing to hold onto unravels.

Let’s change it up, she says. And the moment the words are out of her mouth, he’s stripping to his skivvies, and throwing out a challenge while he’s at it.

Calloway won’t know what hit her when he’s through playing.



But he does know one thing for sure. When it ends, she’ll be his.




Well if it has the word wine in the title you know I am going to want to read it. May Contain Wine was another funny, sexy and sweet romance from Lani Lynn Vale. I am loving that we are getting the kids from the original SWAT team stories. In May Contain Wine we have Calloway and Louis’ book. These two used to date until Louis broke her heart when he ended things with her when they were younger. Too bad that Calloway just can’t get away from him, since he donates blood to her once a month, can’t a girl catch a break? I loved the banter between these two, I laughed out loud more than once while reading May Contain Wine and snorted a couple of times too.


Louis knows he screwed up all those years ago with Calloway, I actually felt for him more so than I originally thought I would. His depth of feelings for Calloway are what made me love his character even more. He really won me over more than once throughout the book. I loved Calloway as well. She was smart and sassy and the perfect balance to Louis. I understood why she wanted distance from him, even though she still had feelings for him.

I really like that not only is this series about SWAT officers but also veterans of the military and how Ms. Vale honors them in her books make me just want to never stop reading her books. May Contain Wine is another must have on your TBR list in my opinion. I hope that you enjoy it as well if you read it.

Release Blitz! Get Bucked By Lani Lynn Vale




Darby has always been ‘that’ guy.

The guy that no man, woman, or child wants around their loved one.

See, a long time ago he made some bad decisions. Those bad decisions have haunted him ever since. No matter what he does, people still see him as the town’s screw up. The boy that sold his soul to the Devil.

Years later, he’s turned himself around. Made amends and ultimately turned into a generally good guy. Only, it’s hard to act like a good guy when people still treat you like the old you, and not the new you.

Enter Waylynn Jennings.

Waylynn has watched Darby Valentine from afar for a very long time.

She’s witnessed the changes in him and knows the only reason he’s so mean is to protect the man that lies within. A battered, injured soul that deserves more than what he’s received. Even his own family takes him for granted.

She’s made it her new mission in life to prove to everyone that Darby isn’t the bad guy. That he’s a kind-hearted, sweet soul that’s just looking for a place to fit in.

Only, Darby is fairly sure that Waylynn is out to kill him, not help him. How else do you explain all the fights he’s having to break up on her behalf, or all the times he has to come to her rescue when she’s managed to put her cute little butt right in the middle of something where it shouldn’t be?

There’s obviously only one solution. He has to make her his. Then everyone will know not to mess with her. 

Darby Valentine protects what’s his. 

No matter what the cost.


Before I start my review can I just state how much I love the creativity of the names of the titles of Lani Lynn Vale's books?  I mean I always have a smile on my face when I see the names and even a bigger one once I begin the books. Get Bucked is the last book that left this book whore quickly devoured. 

I have been wanting Darby’s book since the series started. He was the brother who always was in trouble when he was younger. The one whom his brothers never took seriously or trusted that he changed. Darby is so much more than what others label him as and my heart broke for him more than once throughout the book. Waylnn's character was the perfect balance to Darby, I loved how they were together, the banter, the sexy moments, the sweet, just everything had me falling in love with them. 

Like any book from Ms. Vale you have to hold on for the ride and not get bucked off, sorry I couldn't help the horrible pun, to get to the happily ever after. I do hope we continue to see these characters in future books and spin offs, I am just not ready to let go of them yet.
