Release Blitz! Savage By L.A. Fiore

They call him a monster.
Pale blue eyes as cold as ice that see right through you.
He’s hard.
He’s damaged.
He’s dangerous.
He lives in a castle fit for a fairy tale, but he’s no prince.
He’s savage.
He’s brutal.
He’s a killer.
By an act of fate, our worlds collide.
They call him a monster, but he is my salvation.

I am sure I will be in the minority with Savage because while I enjoyed it I didn’t love it.  Let me be clear dark romances are some of my favorite to read, the darker the better but I have to be sucked in fairly quickly for me to love them and I wasn’t with Savage.  It took me a while to convince myself to continue reading because it dragged on at times.  I know we needed Lizzie and Brochan’s past to understand why they are the way they are now but for me the dialog at times just dragged on and didn’t flow. 

Both Lizzie and Brochan suffered abuse as children, and unfortunately for Lizzie her mother is hated in the town and they all are judging her because of her mom.  After a while though that got old to read about.  Lizzie needed to be stronger than she was.  I think I had more of a connection to Brochan throughout the story than Lizzie.  There were some times of hot scenes but sadly for me it wasn’t enough to keep me invested in the story, and I wanted to be I so wanted to be because it had the elements that I normally love but for me, the execution didn’t work like I had hoped.

L.A. Fiore is the author of several books including Beautifully Damaged, Collecting the Pieces and His Light in the Dark. Her favorite movie is Star Wars, a love her son shares. They hope to build their own Millennium Falcon one day. She would like to meet the Winchester Boys to thank them for enlightening her on the versatility of salt as not just a food enhancer, but as protection from supernatural threats. And she thinks it would be interesting to be a zombie, to get an idea of what life is like as a brain-addicted fiend so she can be their voice to tell their side of the story. She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and kids, their two spoiled cats and their awesome dog.


Release Blitz! The Rivalry By Nikki Sloane

This tight end is at the top of his game.

He’s good with his hands, even better with his sexy mouth, and the best at making me forget my own name. His, ahem, stats are perfect.

But I can’t fall for him.

He might be everything I want, all rolled into a glorious package of gridiron god, but there’s one teeny-tiny problem. The vile, loathsome team I’ve spent my entire life hating—my beloved school’s arch-rival?

This guy is their star player.

Before I even start this review  for The Rivalry something must be said.  I am a HUGE U of M fan, my dad had me watching football when I was 3 months old and have been to numerous games.  So Go Blue!

Okay I bet you are wondering if your favorite book whore has lost her damn mind finally, well we all know I lose it all the time but this book is about one of the greatest college football rivalries of all time.  University of Michigan v Ohio State (boo hiss boo hiss sorry that is sort of instinctual when it comes to that school).  When I saw that Ms. Sloane was doing a book about these two teams I had to investigate to see if she knew her stuff, she did and trust me she amazed me and I felt like she almost tapped into my brain when she wrote Kayla.  Why do you ask?  Well it is because Kayla is a cheerleader for, wait for it, Ohio State. *crosses self and asks for forgiveness from the football gods for what I am about to type*  Kayla is me only in Ohio State form, okay I was never a cheerleader but her contempt towards my beloved favorite college was exactly how I sound especially during football season only mine is towards Ohio State, again Go Blue!.  I honestly think I am worse during an U of M game than when I watch hockey, and trust me at times it isn’t pretty.  She was so sassy and sarcastic but at the same time she couldn’t help her feelings for, wait for it, Jay who is one of the star players for U of M.  At times I did want to slap her because she did take things too far but I could understand it, I was raised to hate Ohio State and she was raised to hate U of M and never the two should be together.

Jay didn’t have a problem with the whole rivalry thing, he just wanted Kayla because she was perfect for him. Well besides the whole contempt for U of M thing.  He was not only an amazing football player he was all around a great guy.  He wanted Kayla to see him, not the team he plays for.  Does he succeed in that? Well you will have to read the book to find out because I am not telling you.  I loved him and his character, he really was special all around. 

The Rivalry was hilarious, it was sexy, it made this U of M fan even more anxious about this weekend’s annual meeting of these two rival teams, and it is a book that I can highly recommend and one I loved!  Nikki Sloane really did an amazing job with the true depth of this rivalry and luckily she went to a different school so I can still read her books, just kidding she is a must have on your must read author lists for sure.

Release Blitz! Collision By Leaona Luxx

COLLISION- an instance of one moving object or person striking against another.
I lost it once, and I damn near lost myself.
When she crashes in, breaking down walls and loving me, my resolve is endangered.
Falling in love with Reese was never the plan. Living without her isn't an option.
If I lose control, it will change our course forever.
Can we survive when our worlds collide and the damage is inconceivable?
Buckle up, this is gonna hurt.

“Dammit, can’t you understand? I’m the storm,” I snarl into her hair.

She turns in my arms, worrying her bottom lip. She looks at me, her eyes teeming with unshed tears. “You’re the beacon.”

Her words crash over me, like waves onto the shore. “No.” I fight taking her mouth again.

Reese traces my jaw with her hand. “Why am I not enough?”

My chest tightens, and I feel dizzy. She needs to stay away from me. I’m no good for her. I can’t even kiss her without losing control.

“No, Reese. I’m not.” I push her away and step around her.

She grabs my arm, making me hesitate from her pull. “What was this? Why are you acting this way?” I continue to walk away. “You can’t kiss me like that and walk away as if I don’t matter.”

I turn on her, spinning her against the wall as I pin her arms above her head. Slowly running my hand up her thigh, gripping it, I hitch her leg over my hip and grind into her. Her full breasts heave, making me hard in an instant.

I trail my lips over her jaw, and her nipples pebble in response. I groan from our closeness. I nip her ear, and she moans. I growl. “This. Reese? Is this what you want?” I grind my hips into her pelvis hard.

“Yes, Walker.” Her head lulls. She pushes her hips into mine, and my mouth waters.

“You don’t know what you’re asking for,” I grunt, thrusting into her.

She turns her face to me, her warm breath washing over me. “So, tell me.”

I brush her lips with mine just as reality crashes in. “You don’t even know me.” I release my hold on her, pausing while she gets her balance.

“Fine, tell me. Say something. Anything.” Tears brim her eyes as the inability to speak grips me. Reese leans her head against mine, wrapping her hands around my wrists. “Don’t leave.”

I wince, turning my head to the side. “I can’t.”

“Why, Walker?” she demands.

My breath quickens. She breaks me down inside. Trembling, I remove her hands, my mouth going dry. “You’re in love with someone else.” My muscles tighten, and my jaw sets in determination. “Besides, I’m the worst thing for you.”

I release her, walking away from her as fast as my feet will carry me. I throw the doors open with Reese on my heels. Candy stands at the entrance with another man, but I don’t care. I have to show Reese who I am.

“Walker. Stop, please,” Reese calls behinds me. I hurry past Riley and Ava with a shake of my head, but I’m brought up short when Thayer steps in my way.

“Walker, stay.”

Her words ring in my ears. Bile rises in my throat. “I can’t. Won’t.” I step around her, taking Candy by the hand. The smirk on her face tells me who she’s looking at. “Don’t you fucking dare, Candy,” I growl at her and help her out the door.
