Midnight Blue

Author: LJ Shen

Release Date: January 18th

BLURB:
It should have been easy.
I needed the money. He needed a babysitter to keep him from snorting himself to death.
I was cherry-picked especially for him. Responsible. Optimistic. Warm. Innocent.
The worst part is that I should have known better.
Alex Winslow. British rock star. Serial heartbreaker. Casanova with whiskey eyes.
“Don’t get near the devil in a leather jacket. He’ll chew you up and spit you out.”
Sounds familiar? That’s because it was a headline in a tabloid the second time he got arrested.
Guess what? I didn’t listen.
I signed the contract.
World tour. Three months. Four Continents. One hundred shows.
My name is Indigo Bellamy, and I sold my soul to a tattooed god.
Problem was, my soul wasn’t enough for Alex Winslow. He ended up taking my body, too.
Then he took my heart.
Then he took my all.

Synopsis:

Technically, you aren’t supposed to fall in love with your best friend’s girl.
When I was nineteen years old, I was faced with a choice that changed my life.
Keep the safety of what I already knew or risk losing everything with the young, hotheaded soldier who stole my heart.
I chose the wrong man, and for seventeen years, I paid in tears, blood, and shattered dreams for that decision.
Now, there’s a man in my house, holding a gun to my head on the order of my ex-husband—given from his prison cell.
That hotheaded soldier I was too afraid to choose? He’s now a six-foot-three wall of muscle who works at the country’s most premier bodyguard agency. I’ve always wanted him, but now, I’ve never needed him more.
It’s the call I’m terrified to make.
I’m sure he still hates me… Even though I’ve never stopped loving him.

Scoring Mr. Romeo by A.M. Madden and Joanne Schwehm • BLOG TOUR & REVIEW

SBPRBanner-SMR-BT 

Scoring Mr. Romeo by A.M. Madden and Joanne Schwehm Release Date: January 15th, 2018 Genre: Contemporary Romance

SMR_FrontCover.jpg

Here’s a tip: never underestimate romance.
Falling in love was the furthest thing from my mind. I’m a single mother raising a strong little boy, and he is my one and only priority.
The universe felt otherwise, sending me―actually, my son’s soccer ball―hurdling toward a stunningly handsome, perfect man, who said all the right things. He made it hard to ignore how much I missed romance.
In the past, when I met a man, they ran as soon as they heard I was a widow with a child. Not this guy. No, he fell in love with my son, and in turn my son fell in love with him. But, it was hard to believe he felt the same about me. My job was to be the strong one―to protect our hearts from sweet dreams that never lasted.
~~~
Women told me I was a master of romance. They were right. I knew how to sweep a woman off her feet, to make her feel special, and good in all the right places. I wasn’t a saint. I’ve had my share of one-night stands. They served their purpose, giving me a steady diet of romance without the hassle of commitment.
Then one day at the park, a soccer ball came careening toward my head, and my life changed in an instant. I never imagined that true love would come in the form of a five-year-old little boy. And then I got to know his mother: She was strong, independent, drop-dead gorgeous, and someone I desired - I just needed to prove it to her.
She called me Mr. Romeo, and that was fine with me.
Lesson learned: Love always trumps everything.

REVIEW BY GINA:

Talk about sweet!!!! This book is jam packed with all the warm and fuzzies! This is most definitely a feel good book. I very much enjoyed the book. The story was great. There needs to be more Luca's in the world, let me tell you! Sweet, caring, considerate, just simply the most adorable man in the world! And Mikey was ADORABLE! It was a fun storyline, easy to follow, and well written. I did hope for some more drama as it was a little too sweet for me but I did still enjoy it. 

4 STARS

Teaser_1

Excerpt:
Luca’s POV
Only an inch separated our mouths, but the cool air that replaced her warm lips had me going back for more. Wanting to feel them again, the second time I pressed harder. She parted just enough to convey she also wanted more. My conscience nagged, forcing me to again break the connection and end the temptation. Her breath hitched when I added more distance, as if I removed her source of oxygen. “I better go,” I whispered. The uncertainty in her eyes killed me. “Sabrina, I don’t want to… I need to.”

Living Out Loud by Staci Hart • COVER REVEAL

The wait is over! We have our first stunning Staci Hart cover for 2018. It is beautiful! I cannot wait to get my hands on LIVING OUT LOUD! Check out more about this upcoming release below!


Living Out Loud Staci Hart 

Publication Date: February 1, 2018 

Cover Photo: Perrywinkle Photography 

Cover Design: QuirkyBird Designs



When Annie Daschle arrives in New York City, the only thing she can control is her list. Not her father’s death or the loss of her home. Not the hole in her heart or the defective valve that’s dictated so much of her life. But she can put pen to paper to make a list of all the ways she can live out loud, just like her dad would have wanted. See the city from the top of the Empire State Building: Check. Eat hot dogs on the steps of The Met: Check. Stand in the middle of Times Square: Check. Get a job at Wasted Words: Check. Two things not on her list: Greg Brandon and Will Bailey. And just like that, she finds herself caught in the middle of something she can’t find her way out of, with no clear answers and no rules. List or no list, she realizes she can’t control anything at all, not even her heart. Not the decisions it makes, and not the moment it stops. 

*Standalone contemporary romance Inspired by Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility.* 




Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Gentleman Nine by Penelope Ward • COVER REVEAL

We are thrilled to bring you the cover from New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward. Gentleman Nine releases on February 19th!

     
Cover designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA designs
Cover Model: Lucas Garcez
Cover Photography: Sven Jacobsen

Synopsis:
      From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.   

Growing up, the three of us were friends. 
He was the nerd. 
I was the playboy. 
She was the beauty.   

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. 
He lied.  

 I went off to college, and he got the girl. 
Amber never knew how I felt. 
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.  

 Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.   

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men. 

One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings. Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity. Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message. She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend— me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.) 

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel. When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

Review by: Flavia 

I love this series, from the first book, till the latest one.
Lexi thought she was blessed with her life. A husband she loved, a life she had always wanted and a family that is always there whenever she needed it. But she was missing one thing. The one thing she has always wanted, a Baby. She and Chris have been trying for a while now but it just doesn't seem like its working. And things have not been good with them for a while now. He is always working, never there when she needs him and doesn't attend any family gatherings with her. Until she discovers his secret. A secret that led her to immediately leave him and move into her sister's flat. Where she meets Linkin Stone. He looks like the definition of a bad boy, but looks can be deceiving. As she gets to know him, she discovers someone caring, loving, protector and hot damn sexy as hell. And the chemistry between them is off the charts, and she can't wait to have 'the sex' with him.
Linkin Stone is doing everything to keep his family together. His mother and brothers and himself have just moved to Town a couple of months ago and he is working two jobs to pay off a debt that his step-father has saddled them with. So he doesn't actually have time to have a personal life. Until he meets Lexi, his firecracker. She is everything that he wants in a women, strong, sassy, sexy and will do anything for her family. So when she decides to have the one thing that she has always wanted, a baby and wants to get a sperm donor, why not volunteer. But Lexi gives him one week to prove that he can be a father to her baby, if she decides to give him a shot.
This book was so good, it was sweet, romantic, sexy, the chemistry was freaking off the charts between Linkin and Lexi. And man oh man have i said how much i love Grandma. She is freaking hilarious. I cannot wait to read more about the sisters and their lives. Definitely an awesome read.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“It’s time to get this thing started!” the little old woman hollers behind me, walking by and swatting me on the ass. “Oh, that’s nice,” she adds with an ornery grin and a wink. What in the hell is going on here? “We’re ready. Go!” “Go?” I ask, confused, and rubbing the back of my neck with my hand. “Strip! It’s why you’re here, right? My granddaughter, Alexis, is celebrating her divorce, and what a better way to rejoice than with a stripper! Oh, that agency was right. You are a delicious, big ol’ slab of meat. So, take it off! Take it off!” the woman chants, the girls standing off to the side giggling and chugging whatever is in their glasses (probably alcohol). “Grandma, this is completely not necessary,” Lexi says from the chair. “Zip it! It’s completely necessary to welcome you back into the dating world with some naked man meat. This is a cellllllllebrationnnnnnn, Alexis.” “Stop calling me that. I’m not even divorced yet.” “Semantics.” Walking up to her granddaughter, the old woman whispers loudly, “Hey, maybe you’ll get to sleep with the stripper. He’s super hunky with a great ass,” she adds with another wink sent my way. “Please don’t do this,” Lexi begs from her chair. “Too late. I’ve already paid the beefcake. Just sit there and enjoy. I know I’m ready,” Grandma says, pulling a folding chair nearby so she gets an up-close and personal view. My heart is hammering in my chest as I take in the room. The other occupants are staring at me expectantly, while Grandma grabs her phone, presumably to take pictures or video. Strip in a room full of woman? For Lexi? Fuck yes! Suddenly, the music changes to Warrant. “Cherry Pie” blares through the speakers, and I realize I’m at a fork in the road. I can get the hell out of this apartment, away from the crazy old woman who’s apparently into buying her grandkids strippers, and hide away from Lexi and her whacked family for the rest of my time in this building. Or, I can stay. And strip. A broad smile stretches across my face as I take in the anxiously nervous woman sitting before me. I wonder why she hasn’t removed her blindfold, and upon closer inspection, I realize her hands are also tied to the back of the chair. Perfect.

Review by: Gina

This author never ceases to amaze me! Where she comes up with these storylines, I have no idea, but I don't want her to ever stop! When I started this book I was torn if I wanted to savior it or devour it, so I did a little bit of both! 

When reading a book it's only natural to try to predict the story while your reading and it was impossible for me to do that with this book. When I thought the story was going to go one way, it took a sharp left turn and went another way. The author did an excellent job on keeping me on my toes for the ENTIRE story! I loved all the thought and detail the author put into the story. At the end, it all paid off. It all came together so perfectly and I couldn't have ask for anything more. 

Through out the entire story, I felt sorrow and anger and frustration and love for these characters and what they were going through. There was a time I was torn on who's side I should be on, but I just couldn't choose! There was no way to choose! I loved that the author was able to draw out such emotion from me! That is a sign of a great book! If you are looking for a book with an intense storyline, tons of emotions, and  full of twists and turns this is a MUST READ book!
