Release Blitz! Panty Snatcher By Chelsea Camaron


I don't do call backs.

I don't do commitments.
I am Zane Collier, player, manwhore, and bachelor for life.
My friends made a bet. One, I refuse to lose.
Regardless of the history Sawyer and I share, I'll remain the one hit wonder for life.
I am the panty snatcher.
So why can't I get hers?
***This is a small town, second chance, stand alone romance that is a fast paced short story. If insta-attraction, insta-lust, insta-love, and insta-ever after aren't your thing then this isn't the book for you. If it is then, prepare yourself to meet Zane, and wish this Panty Snatcher would snatch yours!!***


Panty Snatcher was a quick second chance romance that brings the manwhore in the story to his knees.  I really love Ms. Camaron as an author so I hate that I didn’t absolutely love this one.  It was fun and it was sexy but there is something I just can’t move past because if my friend did that well I wouldn’t want either of them anymore but especially the friend and no I am not going to say what.  This is a fast paced read that is easily read in an afternoon but I also wish it would have been longer not because it felt as is it was lacking but because I think these two characters deserved a longer story especially with their history.  Overall it is a quick and sexy read that I did enjoy.









Chelsea Camaron is a small town Carolina girl with a big imagination. She is a wife and mom chasing her dreams. She writes contemporary romance, erotic suspense, and psychological thrillers. She loves to write blue-collar men who have real problems with a fictional twist. From mechanics to bikers to oil riggers to smokejumpers, bar owners, and beyond, she loves a strong hero who works hard and plays harder.

Friday Favorites! Boarded By Love By Toni Aleo



Boarded by Love (Bellevue Bullies, #1)"Jude Sinclair here, hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies and lover of all ladies. Hockey’s in my blood, and not to sound full of myself, but

I’m good at it...really good. The draft is within my reach—it’s mine to take—but that’s not the only reason people know my name. They know me because of my way with women. They know the score, and I aim to please. I just tend to stay away from repeat performances. In other words, I don’t do relationships beyond my family and friends. I’m happy with life. However, I should warn you that my story and how I see it playing out is about to change due to a certain redhead on campus.

She’s beautiful. Stunning. Breathtaking.

She’s my game changer."

"He’s trouble from the moment I see him. I don’t know what I’m thinking, but from the moment I meet his gaze, I’m his. It’s a scary feeling.

I’ve never trusted anyone outside my aunt and uncle—and even that took months. I didn’t have it easy growing up. My mom was usually strung out, and she didn’t give me a second thought. Drugs and the men who paid her were more important to her. It was horrible, but I’m stronger today. Because of my past, security is what I need most. Money assures me that I can take care of myself today, tomorrow, and next month. I don’t want to ever be hungry or go without again, so I work hard for every penny.

Oh, by the way, I’m Claire Anderson. I’m a hard-studying sophomore at the University of Bellevue, dancer for the school dance team, and a burlesque dancer at a club, but that’s my secret.
You may think you know how our story ends, but you have no clue. It’s not easy falling in love… or living happily ever after. At first it may seem so, but when is anything worth having ever won without a fight?

Especially when you’re boarded by love."

Throwback Thursday! The Officer Says I Do By Jeanette Murray


This review previously posted on My Secret Romance Book Reviews and I have permission to post on here.

He's a Marine...she grew up on a commune.

He always puts duty first...she's a free spirit with an unshakable belief in Fate.

He loves routine and order...she brings chaos and creativity wherever she goes.

They're going to balance each other perfectly--or drive each other completely, utterly insane...

On a wild pre-deployment celebration in Las Vegas, Captain Timothy O'Shay encounters free-spirited beauty Skye McDermott, and for once lets down his guard. Now his life is about to take off in directions he never could have imagined...


I loved this book. It is funny, sweet, romantic and sexy all in one. I am a military wife. My husband is in the Air Force and I about died laughing at certain parts because I still make some of those new military wife mistakes and some things I do just to annoy my husband for fun. I could not put this book down. I read it in a day because I just wanted to see what was going to happen next.

Tim is your stick up the ass, stuffy military man and Skye is the care free, leave your stuff every where hippie type and their relationship works. They balance each other out and make the other better. You would honestly think that they would want nothing to do with each other, but that is not the case with these two. They are not only attracted to each other big time sexually, they actually work on making their marriage work. While their marriage definitely did not start off in a conventional way, they made it work. Tim realizes that sometimes you need not to be so anal all the time and that is because of Skye. Skye really wants this marriage to work and even tries to change to make Tim happy, but he loves her for her not who she is trying to be.

This does show the sometime unfortunate side of military life. I am not talking about the deployments and last minute changes. I am talking about the snotty stuck up, I think I am too good for you military wives that give the good ones a bad name. I so wanted to slap a bitch when I read about Tim’s superior’s wife and how she acted. I loved when Skye finally said something to her. I wanted to yell out You Go Girl!!

If you believe in fate or soul mates, then you will love this book. If you love military romances, you will love this book. If you love a good romance, you will love this book. Have you gotten the hint yet, go get this book, you will love it! I am wishing it was January so I can get my hands on book 2 right now.


Blog Tour! True By Ella Frank

SBPRBanner-TRUE-RB-2

TRUE, the final book in The Temptation Series by Ella Frank and the highly anticipated wedding between Logan Mitchell and Tate Morrison is available now!

TRUE-FINAL
True - adjective: That which is accurate or exact.
I dare you to try.
I think you’re my truth.
Terrify me.
Marry me.
Marry me.
Marry me...
Four years ago, Logan Mitchell walked into Tate’s life and challenged him to see it differently.
He dared Tate to try a kiss, when normally he wouldn’t have.
He begged him to take a chance, when he probably shouldn’t have.
But most importantly, he asked Tate to trust that he would love him, and he did. From that moment on, Tate realized exactly what his life had been missing—Logan.
Happily-ever-afters come in many different forms. But for Tate Morrison, there’s only one ending he wants. The one where the guy marries the guy and true love conquers all.
Now all he has to do is tell Logan.
Join Logan and Tate as they finally realize what the rest of us knew all along. That they belong together for better or worse—always.


I am going to type the review of True a bit different than I normally would.  So I hope you like the way I did this because I think it is the best way to get my feelings across for this book.

Dear Ms. Frank,

I wanted to say thank you for giving me the opportunity to Try something new to me at the time that I read it.  Thank you for having me fall completely and totally in love with two men that even now I am not ready to let go of yet.  Logan and Tate made me want to Try and I did, and when I did I was already hooked on this series.

Thank you for haven given me and other readers the ability to Take away something emotional, heart breaking and heart healing in these books.  I wanted you to Take me on a reading journey that I would not soon forget and that is exactly what you did.

Thank you for showing your readers how to Trust that everything would work out when we were terrified that it wouldn’t.  We gave you our Trust and you gave us yours when you wrote one of the best romance series I have ever read.  I don’t see it is m/m I see it as love between two people that had to Try, Take, and then Trust and that is what love is.

Thank you for giving us an extra Tease when we thought we wouldn’t be getting any more of our two favorite men.  I know when it was announced you were doing more I cried happy tears because I love these two men so much, and I am sure I am not the only one who should their happiness in a variety of ways.

Thank you for reminding us that while some may love Logan that Tate deserves every single bit of our love as well.  That he has fears of losing love like all of us, that he has a silent strength that so many do not have and a heart that is not only filled with love but is also forgiving when the time is right.  Logan may be the sexy dirty talking lawyer, but Tate is the sexy bartender that you can’t help but want for your very own.

Thank you for showing us what True love is about.  That it isn’t always smooth but it is rocky, that there are insecurities and fear s in even the strongest of relationships. That by staying True you prove to the world that love is love and fuck anyone who disagrees.  That love between Logan and Tate is not only beautiful but True.  I cried while reading True, I didn’t want to give these two men who invaded my heart years ago to be over.  My heart raced, my emotions were high and I didn’t want the book to ever end.

True may be the end of the series but it will not the end of my love for Logan and Tate.  This is going to be one of my top books in 2017 because even now I am still feeling the love between two characters that taught us so many things, but most importantly that love is love and when it is real that is all that matters.

Thank you Ms. Frank for taking your readers on this amazing journey and I know that while the series may be done I hope we still get more glimpses of two of our all-time favorite characters in some future books.  

If anyone has not discovered this series yet then stop waiting and fall in love with two of the hottest men this book whore have ever read and see once again that love is love and it is beautiful.

Sincerely, 
A Book Whore who loves Logan & Tate



LOVE. IT’S FUNNY how one four-letter word can bring on such an onslaught of emotions. Happiness, desire, anger, even fear, Tate Morrison thought, as he sat at the tiny table in the empty bar of the Lynley Winery and tried to calm his erratic heartbeat. It could make those who were the most honest with their emotions run scared, while at the same time bring forth a determination in the most unlikely of people. That was something he had discovered ten minutes ago back in their suite when Logan had stood before him naked and uttered, “Just tell me how you want me, Tate. I’m yours.” That was when he’d run. Tate had practically tripped over his feet in his hurry to be free of the suddenly suffocating confines of that bathroom. And now, as he sat alone replaying Logan’s words, he stared down at the crumpled paper he’d grabbed from his wallet and studied the words in his shaking hands. His stomach knotted, then flipped over on itself time and time again, and Tate willed himself to breathe. The last thing he needed was to pass out from a panic attack, but that was exactly what was happening. He was panicking. And the reason? The reason was as clear as day. He was the dumbest motherfucker on the planet. Yeah, he was. Fucking hell. He’d heard that love made people do some stupid shit before, but this… God, what if I can’t fix this? What if Logan doesn’t want me like that anymore? The thought made him want to be sick. He squeezed his eyes shut, trying to stop the room from spinning, but all that did was bring to mind Logan back in the bathroom, beautiful as always, looking at Tate for some kind of indication of what was running through his head. And what had Tate given him? Nothing. He’d just fled. Damn it. Tate shoved the piece of paper into his pocket, along with the pen he’d grabbed from the side table back in their suite, no longer able to look at it. What had he done to them? How had he let fear of the unknown possibly ruin this? And as the memories flooded him again… I dare you to try. I think you’re my truth. Terrify me. Marry me. …he was more than aware that it was that one, the last one, that didn’t have the right ending. He’d really messed this up, but he could make it right and wanted to, more than he wanted his next breath. He placed his head in his hands and shut his eyes, trying to gather some semblance of control so he could go back, find Logan, and do the one thing he realized he should’ve done all along. It wasn’t until he heard the sound of padded feet on the hardwood floor that he looked up to see that he didn’t need to go and find Logan, because he had tracked Tate down instead. With the fire flickering behind him, the sharp angles of Logan’s cheeks and jaw only enhanced a face Tate loved more than he thought possible, and when Logan pulled out the chair opposite him and reached across the table to take his hands, Tate couldn’t believe it had taken his brain this long to catch up and get to where it now firmly was. “Hey,” Logan said, his eyes roaming over Tate’s face, no doubt for signs, clues as to why he’d run away. “Hey,” Tate replied, and then lowered his gaze to their hands, marveling over the strength he found there when they were joined. Exactly…together, not apart. Always and forever, together. “What are you doing out here?” Logan asked, and Tate swallowed as he felt Logan tighten his grip. “I, uhh…” “Tate?” Logan said before Tate could give any kind of response. “What are you doing out here?” Tate withdrew his hand and ran it through his hair, and as Logan continued to watch him, he felt his nerves kick in. “Back there in the bathroom…” he started, and then stopped. As he thought over his words, Tate wondered if there was even a way to explain how badly he’d screwed this all up, but knew the only way he’d ever know was to try. “I had a thought. It was more of a moment, I guess. A flash of us. Of all we are and will be and— Shit, I sound crazy, don’t I?” Logan’s eyes narrowed, but he shook his head. “You don’t sound crazy. But you are freaking me out a little. Were the things you were thinking good things, at least?” Tate frowned and then shot Logan an apologetic look. The last thing Tate wanted was to worry him more—it was the exact opposite. “Yeah, of course. I should’ve probably started with that. Everything about you was good. Perfect, really, but me…” “What about you? You’re pretty fucking perfect from where I’m sitting. And back there in that bathroom, trust me, you looked better than any of those naked statues on the wall.” Tate tried for a smile but knew he didn’t quite pull it off when Logan asked, “What is it, Tate? Come on; you know you can tell me anything.” Okay, this is it, Tate thought, as he swallowed and then shifted in his seat, glancing over at the fire for a moment to gather his nerve. Then he turned back to Logan and asked, “Am I too late?” At Logan’s confused expression, Tate knew he didn’t understand what he was asking. So he reached into his pocket where he’d shoved the piece of paper, and then put it on the table. He smoothed his hand over it, lovingly tracing his fingers over the name he now wanted as his own, and then pushed it over in front of Logan. As Logan stared down at it, Tate watched him read over the words on the paper, waiting for a reaction, and when Logan looked up, Tate asked again, “Am I too late?” Logan blinked several times, and Tate held his breath, wondering if he was too late. But then something miraculous happened: Logan shook his head. The blood rushing around Tate’s head made his ears ring as he tried to comprehend what Logan was telling him, but he still hadn’t said a word, so Tate pulled the pen from his pocket and leaned over to circle the name he hadn’t been able to stop looking at ever since he’d found the piece of paper. As Logan looked down again, Tate saw a huge grin split his lips. “So what do you think? Can the world handle two Mr. Mitchells?”
