Release Blitz! Imperfect Love World


 IMPERFECT LOVE Kindle World, a fabulous new series featuring strong alpha heroes who get knocked sideways when they suddenly begin noticing the heroine in a whole new light. In partnership with Kendall Ryan & these amazing bestselling authors: Kelly Elliott, Adriana Locke, Mandi Beck, T. Gephart, Kim Karr, Cora Kenborn, Magan Vernon & Natasha Madison. Sexy, laugh-out-loud funny, and sweet at times, this series is all about exploring romance tropes like friends to lovers, fake fiancé, arranged marriage, surprise pregnancy, budding office romances, and more, that all share one fabulous thing in common--they end in a happily ever after.  


     FAMED by Magan Vernon: On the heels of Mary James leaked sex tape - totally a fake one to make her boyfriend jealous she might add- she needs some PR help if she ever wants her acting career to end up in a fiery hell like her love life. Chris Garcia has been working his way up from mail room clerk to junior associate at Tate & Cane and now to get to the next rung of the corporate ladder he has to take on the firm's toughest client: Mary James. With a little help from a nosey Aunt Rosita and Mama Garcia, the two decide the best way to move forward is simple: a fake relationship. But what happens when something fake gets to be too real and FAME gets involved?   

Famed was another cute and sexy read in the Imperfect Love series.  It was a pretty quick read but while it may have been quick I didn’t find it lacking in the least.  I really loved the chemistry and banter between Chris and Mary.  From the very first time they meet you can just tell that this is going to be one of those romances that has you laughing and leaves you with a smile on your face.

Oh the dreaded sex tape, which was actually a fake but this is why you don’t drink and plot revenge against the person who broke your heart.  I liked the approach that Chris took to help reform Mary’s image, while it may have started off as fake the undeniable chemistry between them just fuels the fire until it explodes and there is no denying that these two are meant for each other.

Famed was another enjoyable and sexy read in the Imperfect Love series and one I can easily recommend to others.

  One-Night Stand-In - T. Gephart Sarah Madison loved working at Tate & Cane Enterprises. While she looked and, for the most part, acted conservatively—she was a gladiator in the boardroom. The fast-paced, energetic work environment not only fed her need for corporate blood but also allowed her to work for one of her role models, Olivia Cane—living proof a woman really can have it all. And after months of paying her dues, she was finally offered the promotion she’d been vying for. Which was great, except for the fact she had to share the position with a new guy they brought in especially for the role. Kyle Drake was smart, experienced, and probably just as good, if not better, in negotiations. And if she wasn’t careful, prove he could do the job without her. Add in good-looking and an incredibly sexy smooth talker, and everyone in the office either wanted to be him or sleep with him. Which Sarah could have totally ignored if he hadn’t been the stranger she’d married in Vegas during a fake ceremony six months earlier. He was supposed to be her one-night stand, a stand-in for a ceremony that wasn’t even legally binding. They were never even going to see each other again. Hell, she apparently hadn’t even known his real last name at the time. It was the only time she’d ever done something completely reckless and spontaneous. It figured that one time would come back and bite her where it hurt.   

One-Night Stand In was another cute and really enjoyable read in the Imperfect Love series.  The characters are relatable and likable and the story even though it was a novella was not lacking at all.  I am enjoying that we are getting so many of these novellas that tie into each other but can be read as complete standalones.  One-Night Stand In is one that I plan on reading again in the near future.

Kyle and Sarah were both characters that I couldn’t help but love reading about.  I laughed more than once while reading this and would giggle or smirk along the way.  I mean who doesn’t like a good office romance? I know they are some of my favorite to read.  The twist with this one just added to it to make me like it even more.  Kyle is bossy and sexy and just well yummy.  He could bend me over a board room table or desk any day of the week.  Oops maybe I should have kept that one to myself but trust me he will have you wanting the same.

This is another one I can easily recommend and one I really enjoyed.

THE RUN IN – KELLY ELLIOTT Becoming the new Marketing Manager at Tate and Cane was a game changer. I was hell bent on proving I deserved this job, and that it wasn’t my cousin Sterling Quinn who had helped me score the new job title. Him being one of the CEO’s best friend—didn’t help the rumors. Well screw that. Ten years of sweat and hard work was the reason I was sitting in a large corner office with a killer Manhattan view. More focused than I’d ever been, it was time to take the bull by the horns. And God help the person who stood in in my way. ******** Things I left behind in Seattle, Washington: A promising career at a top marking firm, the past I was desperate to escape, and obviously my sense of direction. It was because of all of those reasons I was standing in the middle of New York City lost and cursing at my phone. If I didn’t get to Tate and Cane soon, I wouldn’t only be late, but also blow the chance to make the good impression on my new boss, Mason Quinn. And I needed that more than anything. One wrong turn, an unfortunate collision, and an expensive suit drenched in my soy chia tea latte was not how I wanted to start my first day. Then there was the other little problem I had. The drop dead gorgeous man whose suit I’d ruined was my new boss. And boy did he look pissed. 

The Run In by Kelly Elliott was an enjoyable read that I did like.  I wish I had loved it but overall it was a good read but at times felt it dragged a bit and it is a novella so that should not be the case.  I liked the idea of the first time Mason and Saylor interact was literally when they ran into each other and neither knew who the other was until they come face to face at work.  I liked that angle a lot, but more than once I got bored and just wanted things to speed up a bit. 

Mason is hot and sexy and yes at times can be a massive jackass but Saylor is no saint either.  She can be moody and bitchy just as much as Mason can.  While I could see a connection and the chemistry between these two it almost felt forced at times.  That combined with how slow I felt it was going just didn’t have me loving it like I had hoped but again I must say I did like it.  I do still recommend reading The Run In, maybe you will like it more than I did.

   TIED BY KIM KARR I was rich, single, and connected, which meant a steady diet of beautiful women wherever I went. I really did think I had the perfect life. Until I went and married a supermodel I’d just met, and everything changed. Of course there were choices. But the word annulment meant giving her up, and I never give up anything. Still, I was a bachelor at heart, and having a wife, well, I didn’t really know what to do with that. After only forty-eight hours of marriage, I had already gone and screwed everything up. Now I have thirty days to prove to my new wife that I’m husband material. There’s only one problem—I don’t even know what husband material means. However, I’m certain that won’t stop me from excelling at it. My wife tells me it isn’t going to be easy. That I have numerous issues to overcome. First, there’s my jealousy. It needs to be tamed. Did I flip over the fact that her latest picture was causing men around the world to do dirty things all over the covers she graced? Hell, yes. I couldn’t help myself though. When her photo went viral, my caveman instincts kicked in, and I demanded she quit her job and stay home—barefoot and pregnant in my kitchen. I can work on that, right? Then there’s my mother. I need to convince her that my new wife is not the money hungry floozy she called her. Did my mother actually call her that? Yes. I can’t help it that my mother wants me to get rid of my new wife. The problem is what my mother wants, she always gets one way or another. Still, turning my mother’s opinion around can’t be that hard, can it? There are many other issues, but according to my new wife, those are minor compared to the biggest one—she says I will never be able to accept being tied down. Don’t worry—I got this one. I intend to prove to her in no uncertain terms that being tied up, down, or horizontal is just what this Upper East Sider needs.  

  Battle of the Sexes Adriana Locke Carver Jones’ partner at Jones + Gallum had to step down for medical reasons. He’s absolutely devastated. He swears. Just ignore his cheeky grin, okay? When word reaches his fancy corner office that Gallum is replacing himself with his daughter, Amity, Carver is ecstatic. For real this time. Jones squashes men in the business industry flat. A woman? Pfst. He’ll be completely in charge in no time, doing whatever he wants. He’s so ready for this. But is he ready to fight the hardest fight of his life? No, not the one to maintain control of his company. The one to keep control of his heart. The battle may begin in the boardroom, but the war will definitely be won in the bedroom. May the best sex win.  

Battle Of The Sexes was titled perfectly I must say because that is exactly what it was.  This is a novella so it is a rather chick read but there is still a lot going on.  This novella is a part of the Imperfect Love collection and I love that these relationships are all imperfect to start.

I must admit for the majority of the book Amity came across and childish because of the grudge she had against Carver, eventually though she did win me over but it took almost the entire book for that to happen.  She softened up a bit and when that happened I stopped seeing a cold frigid person and started seeing someone who may be career driven but was hurt in the past and that made her the way she is.

Carver he is cocky, arrogant, but at the same time I really liked his character.  When he finds out why Amity hates him so much he is honestly remorseful and apologizes to her.  It reminds us that some stupid choices we make as kids can hurt others even years later.  I also understood why he was so upset with Amity was up for CEO of the company both of their fathers had started, so he had me in his corner from the very start.

Overall Battle Of The Sexes was an enjoyable novella and one that I liked.  

  UNSUPERVISED by Cora Kenborn Niall A non-existent love life, unstable paycheck, and a six-year-old who’d rather hit boys than books sound more like a cry for help than a dating profile. On paper, it would seem like I need a life coach, but I’ve managed to get a decent grip on the single-dad thing. My love life, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. With my sexy Irish accent, I should have women of all ages losing their minds, but I seem to attract only a certain type—crazy. The last thing I want is a new relationship, but I need a date for my company’s charity function. A chance meeting with a tall, leggy blonde who looks like she could use a night out is the perfect solution. Beautiful, sane, and she has a kid? We have a winner. I didn’t count on Laken being unforgettable. Unlike all the other fake women I’ve met in this city, she’s real. And if there’s one thing I value more than anything, it’s honesty. Laken I didn’t bust my ass in college to be a nanny. Unfortunately, a 4.0 GPA and sucking up to the owner’s sister did nothing to secure a coveted Tate & Cane Enterprises internship. I’m not proud of being a nanny-for-hire to get my foot in the door, but my wealthy socialite employer has the ears of company executives. Swallowing my pride, I do what I need to—until an afternoon at the park changes everything. I don’t mean to let him think Preston is my kid, but he just assumes. This isn’t me. I’m not a liar. Although his panty-melting accent does unspeakable things to me, I should set the record straight. There’s only one problem. Niall is a freelance photographer for Tate & Cane and invites me to a company event as his plus-one. He’s my “in.” If I can hold on to this charade long enough, I can get the job and the man of my dreams. I’m winging this completely unsupervised. Game on.  

Unsupervised I think is my second favorite novella in the Imperfect Love series. Maybe I am a sucker for a single dad or maybe it is because Niall is just so damn sexy but whatever the reason is I really liked this one.  We all know that when you plot and lie for whatever reason even if it is with the intention of not actually hurting someone, someone gets hurt or it comes back to bite you in the ass.  Well both happened in Unsupervised.

Both Niall and Laken have reasons for going along with the fake fiancé angle.  Niall to protect his daughter and himself from a vile woman and Laken wants the in she has been desperately needing for a chance to work for Tate & Crane.  Little do either realize is that they both have someone in common and that is the person for the reason for the charade.  Sadly some assumptions are made and it adds to the drama of the situation. I was glued to my kindle I wanted to see what would happen between Niall and Laken.

Unsupervised is a book I can easily recommend and one that I really liked!  Add this to your TBR lists!

TWISTED by Mandi Beck Three friends walk into a bar . . . One walks out the fake girlfriend of a hot, bearded Scotsman. Fannin McGuire is up for promotion at Tate and Cane Enterprises, but first she has to make it through her stepsister’s wedding. To Fannin’s ex. Yep. Her ex-fiancé is about to be her new brother-in-law. One big happy family. And lucky her, she also gets to work with him. While Fannin is putting all of her energy into her career, her ex is putting all of his energy into making her life hell. Just when Fannin is sure she’ll be attending the wedding without a plus one, in walks Jasper James to save the day. He’s the bartender at the Iron Flask, the account she’s trying to land, and everything she didn’t know she needed or wanted. Before Fannin knows what’s happening, Jasper is playing knight in shining armor and she likes it. And him. A lot. With his smooth Scottish accent, ridiculously good looks, and that beard? She doesn’t stand a chance. Jasper isn’t in the habit of rescuing anyone. But when Fannin is confronted by her ex about her lack of a date for his upcoming nuptials, Jasper can’t help but step in. Her wild hair, violet eyes, and killer legs have him doing a few things he normally wouldn’t. Never mind that he shouldn’t be getting involved with the woman in charge of making the bar a global success. Their fake relationship becomes more real than either thought it would. Now they’re at the mercy of their feelings when truths are twisted, and the lies don’t taste as smooth as the whisky

   CHEEKY by Natasha Madison Bradley Fitch has it all. A suave job, a gigantic trust fund, and an accent that makes panties drop faster than the speed of light. His new life in New York City is fast-paced and furious, but it's nothing a little getaway can't cure. What says party and unwind like Las Vegas? Nothing. Plus, whatever happens there has to stay there. When his best friend bails, he finds himself sitting on the plane next to his best friend's sister. She’s off-limits—proverbial caution tape wrapped around her body. Of course, she’s also totally ball busting gorgeous. Lexi Quinn fell in love with Bradley at eight years old and then vowed to kill him at eight and a half. What was supposed to be a romantic week away is turning into a nightmare. Her ex is actually married, her luggage is lost, and her reservation is cancelled. And she's sitting next to the man she swore to hate forever One week. No strings attached. What is the worst that could happen? It's all fun and games till this British bad boy gives new meaning to BBC and becomes a little bit too cheeky.    

So I must admit I may have read Cheeky before I read any of the other novellas because hello it’s a Natasha Madison book and she never disappoints this book whore!  I think it is possible that this may be her funniest and sexiest book yet and it’s only a novella people!  I devoured this one.  The banter, the flirting, the forbidden friend’s sister, all of it was done perfectly! 

I don’t want to give too much away because honestly I could break down every little thing about Cheeky that I loved and you would know the entire story so I won’t do that.  What I am going to say is that Bradley Finch is my newest book boyfriend and I am not sharing him with anyone damn it! Okay I probably need to share him with Lexi but know I am doing it under protest!  I laughed so hard at times I would cry or not be able to catch my breath.  The chemistry between these two was off the charts explosive but the connection they share is even more so.  I loved both Bradley and Lexi these two are characters I wish I had as friends in real life, although it would make that whole drooling over Bradley a bit awkward when Lexi would be around so I will just keep him in my dreams I mean my kindle.

I think Natasha Madison has hit rom com gold with Cheeky.  This is one I plan on reading over and over again just to get more of my newest book boyfriend Bradley Finch.  I have said it before and I will keep saying it if you have not yet read a book by Natasha Madison you have to read Cheeky and the rest of her books because ladies and gentlemen she is one of my favorite authors and one that is an automatic must read for this book whore.
