Release Blitz! Outplayed By Lila Rose



Violet Marcus’s life is settled. She has it all: a place of her own, a business where her temper has its uses, and great people who work for her.

But something is missing. The problem is, her stubbornness refuses to admit how lonely she actually is.

She lost the one man she thought she could marry, a university love, but when their careers drive them in different directions they went their separate ways.

Now he’s back.

He’s also changed.

Unsure if she wants to hug him or throat punch him, she keeps her distance. Or tries to.

Travis Stewart moves to Ballarat for one reason—to have Violet back in his life. His love has never diminished. Not through the years, the distance, or even in the underworld he finds himself a part of.

He will always love her.

Now he just has to convince Violet that his heart is hers, and his soul isn’t as black as it seems.

His mission is simple: get Violet to understand they have a future together before getting kneed in the balls. Easy, especially as he refuses to be outplayed.

Review Tour! Eli's Triumph By Joanna Wylde

 

From New York Times Bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes ELI’S TRIUMPH, a new novella in her Reapers MC series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes a new story in her Reapers MC series…

Peaches Taylor spent the last seven years slinging drinks and dodging drunks at the Starkwood Saloon. Some might call it a dead end job, but to her it was an investment—another six months, and she’d have enough money to buy the place.
Life would've been perfect if Eli hadn’t come home.
Eli King is ready to settle down. He stood by his brothers when they needed him, paying the price for their freedom with his own. Now it’s time to claim his reward—the Starkwood Saloon. He’s got the cash to buy the bar, the skills to run it, and just one person standing between him and his dream: Peaches Taylor.
She’s been driving him crazy since they were kids, and not in the good way. When she was six, she shoved a spider down his pants. When he was ten, he locked her in a closet overnight. Then she hot-wired his car at seventeen, and things got ugly…
They’re adults now, and the Starkwood isn’t a toy to fight over—it’s the hill they’ll die on. No prisoners. No compromises. No mercy.
Peaches Taylor and Eli King are going to war.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
I have had an on again off again relationship with the Reaper’s series, some of the books I have loved and some I have hated but I keep coming back because at the end of the day I am invested in this series too much now to give it up. Eli’s Triumph is a novella in the series as well as being a part of the 1001 Dark Nights series of books. If you are new to the series, don’t worry you can read this one as a stand alone book. Keep in mind it is a novella so a lot happened in a short time span. I ended up enjoying Eli’s Triumph a lot.


I love a good enemies to lovers romance, especially one that goes back to their childhoods. I won’t spoil this one for y’all, by now you should know that I won’t but I will say this, the chemistry between Eli and Peaches is explosive, the banter is spot on and there are laugh out loud moments and sexy scenes. Eli’s Triumph is one you won’t want to miss!

Release Blitz! Royal Catch By Kylie Gilmore


A gruff prince in need of a wife
A commoner impersonating a princess
And a bridal competition gone terribly awry…

Gabriel
I am the crown prince of Villroy, heir to a kingdom, bound by duty to marry and produce an heir.
I expected a quiet arrangement through royal channels, instead I got a palace full of women vying for my hand. And how do they “win” this barbaric game set up by my crafty mother? By figuring out how to save the kingdom’s faltering economy through a series of challenges. This undignified circus is beneath a man of my stature! Proof being that a saucy, ill-mannered woman wearing body-hugging clothes is in the lead. I could never love someone like that, let alone marry her.

Anna
The plan sounded simple.
I pose as my friend, pick up her inheritance, and return with the cash to keep her out of jail. (Apparently, being a princess in hiding is no excuse for identity theft.) So, yeah, I’m not exactly royal. I’m an orphan, a self-made woman, and proud of it. Suddenly I’m in a battle royale with a bunch of crazy competitive women for “riches beyond our dreams.” I’m in a time crunch, which means I need to win this competition fast. Only, that means winning over the judge; the smoldering hot grim-faced Gabriel. And now I find myself wanting to compete for more than just the money. But could a royal prince ever fall for a commoner like me?
I’ll be honest, for a while there I almost set Royal Catch aside because I just was not connecting to any of the characters at all, but I kept at it and eventually became invested enough to finish the book. That being said, overall, I liked Royal Catch, I just didn’t love it like I had hoped I would have. I love royal romances, there is just something about possibly becoming a princess or prince that tugs at the little girl inside of me that still loves princess movies and the fairytale of happily ever after, so when this one didn’t meet that mark, I was let down.

Polly aka Anna is trying to help out a distant cousin and attempts to pull off being a princess when she is anything but one. She was quirky, a bit rough around the edges and yet those things made her standout in a good way at times versus being the negative it should have been. Gabriele at times had a stick up his royal ass but once Anna breaks through that icy wall that he surrounds himself with, he is actually a likable character. Add in the whole princess survivor games his parents planned and there is a whole lot going on.


At the end of the day Royal Catch was an okay book that I hoped would have been better, but I am invested enough to want to read the next one in the series when I am able to.

Review Blitz! F-Bomb By Lani Lynn Vale


You murder a man, and all of a sudden people are scared of you.

Slate Solis went from being a guy that people went to in times of need to an ex-con that people crossed the street to avoid being too close to.

He knows he’s done wrong, but out of all of his sins, only one really bothers him—coveting thy neighbor’s wife.

Harleigh Belle—the cute little lady that never gives him a second glance.

After seeing her for the first time while he was in prison, she’s stayed on his mind for three long years. Each time she comes in to visit with her friend on family day, he can’t help but stare.

Then the day comes that he’s set free, and he’s almost disappointed that he’ll never see her again.
Except fate has different plans.

He hasn’t been back in his house for more than three hours when he sees her.

Harleigh Belle in all her glory…oh, and her husband that is everything Slate isn’t.

He tells himself that her being fifty feet away from him, all day every day, is a complete coincidence. 
One that he shouldn’t take advantage of. The more time passes, the harder it gets to stay away. Until one day, and one very ill-timed thunderstorm, ruin everything.

Who knew that baby-making-weather was a real thing?
I know I am beginning to sound like a broken record when it comes to books by Lani Lynn Vale, but I honestly just can’t help it because I absolutely love her books and F-Bomb was another amazing book in this amazing series. I have wanted Slate’s story ever since we had been introduced to him as a secondary character in numerous books. Let me tell you it was worth the wait; hands down Ms. Vale nailed his story.

Harleigh and Slate at times are like oil and water, they just don’t mix. It took me a bit to warm up to Harleigh’s character but once I did, I loved the sarcastic woman as she reminded me of myself at times. The banter and chemistry between Slate and Harleigh is something unmeasurable, but I a sense is almost like foreplay between them. Slate just wants to move forward, he has been in prison and wants to be free, he has no remorse for what he did but the reason behind it, when you find out certain truths, made me so pissed, not at Slate but at his ex.


F-Bomb is another book that I highly recommend be on your TBR lists. Fans of this series will, in my opinion, love F-Bomb, I know this book whore sure did!

Release Blitz! Suppression By Laramie Briscoe




From USA Today Bestselling author, the second book in the Laurel Springs Emergency Response Team Series

If you don't love, you can't get hurt...

Nick Kepler

One thing my childhood taught me was never show my emotions. Don’t make memories. Don’t count on other people. Don’t hope for the best.

All that changed when I was adopted by Ryan and Whitney Kepler.

Begrudgingly I let them into my life, along with my new sister and a best friend I would lay down my life for. But giving up my heart and accepting love in return from Kelsea Harrison? It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever tried to do.

And the truth is? I’m not sure if I’m that strong.

Kelsea Harrison

From the very moment I met Nick Kepler I knew he would be the love of my life. Problem is I haven’t been able to convince him of that yet.

When our best friends get married, Nick and I spend a drunken night letting our walls down and losing all our inhibitions. In one moment I’m given everything I ever wanted. Then, in the blink of an eye it’s taken away from me.

The question is, can I be strong for the both of us?

The answer? I have to be.
From the glimpses we have gotten into Nick’s past in other books I knew that I was going to be in for an emotional roller coaster ride when I began Suppression. What I wasn’t prepared for was exactly how emotionally driven it would be and that my heart would ache for days to come after finishing it. Be prepared to have Nick Kepler shake up your emotions and steal a piece of your heart.

Kelsea and Nick have known each other for years, their families are very close and Nick works with her dad and brother, so a lot is at stake if things went bad. The push and pull between them is not only strong but at times threatens what is beginning to form when Nick pulls away. Healing is a strong message in their story, the healing of the wounds that still are raw for Nick and I don’t mean physical ones, as well as healing someone who reminds Nick of his very own past.


Suppression is another hit for Laramie Briscoe, she has the ability to make you feel like you are a part of the family of the characters she writes. Make sure you have Suppression on your TBR lists!
