Release Blitz: HOLIDAY FOR HIRE by Laurelin Paige & Kayti McGee

 
HOLIDAY FOR HIRE by Laurelin Paige & Kayti McGee Release Date: December 13th
   

Reviewer: Tammi
Rating: 4 Stars

A fun story! A story told before... A jilted woman looking for a hot date to take to her exes wedding.
BUT!!
This one had the added element of Christmas!
The story felt new.
Jane had the Christmas Spirit but didn't believe in the Magic of Christmas.
Ian (who she felt was "below" her in class) taught her not only the Magic of Christmas but gave her a lesson in life as a whole.
This book was funny, touching and STEAMY at times. A perfect storm creating a holidaybook I didn't want to end.

   
 
 
Blurb: After Jane Osborne is unceremoniously dumped by a rich man, and then invited to his Christmas Eve wedding, she decides to hire a date from Craigslist and pass him off as an upgrade.
Fake-boyfriend for hire Ian Brooks ends up being a delightful surprise—and a mysterious stranger she's definitely met before.
Could he be her Christmas wish come true?
**This novella was originally published as "Unmatchable" in Brenda Novak’s ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS anthology

Another great story in a series I can't get enough of!
This one might be my favorite, Forbidden romance I love them and this one was awesome.
Chastity was Off Limits! She was 16 years younger than him AND his bestfriend's niece (who was more like a daughter.)
Ruger couldn't resist!! He fell and fell hard.
The ups and downs, twist and turns of their relationship made for a fantastic story! 
This story had action, love, touching moments and Steam. This couple was HOT!!
I sure hope there are more to come.

Reviewer: Kim
Rating: 4.5 Stars

The Punk and The plaything is a standalone book BUT the plot is connected through all books so I suggest to get the best out of the books you read them in order. Each book is very long which I loved as you definitely get your monies worth plus you get a fantastic story which your find hard to put down.
This book was one of the most anticipated books of the year and it was worth the wait. 
The banter and angst throughout hooked me in. It was full on just the way I like a story so I definitely wasn't disappointed.
I fell in love with Jamison in the previous books so was excited for This book. He's so charming, completely mesmerising and just plan amazing and hot. 
There's slot going on in the story but the main focus is Jamison and Barbette love story.
Bee is a strong character your fall easily in love with. She goes through a lot as she's a victim of domestic abuse but following her journey and watching her get stronger and refusing to be owned by the abuse was inspiring. 
Jamison and Bees story was unique but great. They go from enemies to lovers then back to enemies before they find each other again and forever.
I can't wait until the finally book releases next year.

Excerpt:
“Well, isn’t this the most delicious surprise.” My head confirmed what my eyes were showing me, but my stubborn heart still refused to believe. Jamie was back from Ireland? Why hadn’t Ever told me? Neither of those answers seemed to matter as much as why Jamie was back. The short sleeves of the button up he wore were rolled and bunched at the shoulders, displaying the muscles he’d grown since I’d last seen him four years ago. The white cotton only pronounced his tanned skin. He’d left the buttons undone, allowing anyone who laid eyes on him to see his hard chest and defined abs…and the many tattoos that covered them. Most of them were angry and aggressive, almost scary as if he were showing off his demons for anyone to see. Recalling my sweet Jamie from long ago, and what happened the last time I’d seen him, I knew I was responsible for every one of them. Gone was the gentle boy next door with a full mop of hair, a lanky body, and an easy smile. This boy standing before me was darker, edgier…more tragic to my lonely, fragile heart. Was that yearning burning in the pit of my stomach or fear of the unknown? Because I didn’t know this Jamie, and judging by the wicked gleam in his eyes as he flashed that mocking grin, I didn’t want to know. “What the hell are you doing back here?” “Is that any way to greet your first love? I got to say”—his gaze slowly traced every dip and curve of my body—“I love how well you’ve grown up, Bette.” “First love?” I scoffed, even though it felt like he’d stolen my breath. “You were hardly that.” “Then what was I?” he challenged, backing me against the opposite wall. “I’m breathless to hear more of your lies.” “You were nothing.” He flashed me that sad, beautiful smile I hadn’t realized I’d missed so much. I stood perfectly still as his wolfish gaze ate me up. As close as he stood now, he wouldn’t miss a single fucking flaw. There were many, but no one dared looked close enough to see. I might as well have been Medusa. As he ran his gaze over me, I took the time to study him as well, noting the silver bar piercing his right brow and the small diamond in his right nostril. I could have sworn I’d even glimpse a flash of metal piercing his nipples. Jamie had taken all that sinful deliciousness he naturally possessed and multiplied it by ten thousand. As if the world didn’t already have enough injustices. “You're so beautiful. Did it hurt?” He kept his gaze on me as he turned his head and blew out smoke. “Did what hurt?” I could feel the heat from Jamie’s cigarette when he defiantly brushed his thumb across my bottom lip. To Jamie’s knowledge, I belonged to his cousin now, but he clearly didn’t give a damn. “When you fell from heaven, Satan.” I slapped his hand away while telling myself to get a grip. Jamie might have surprised me, but he was nothing I couldn’t handle. “Get lost, Jameson.” Tapping the end of his cigarette, he sprinkled ash onto my designer blouse. A piece of the flame had fallen, burning through the sheer material, scorching my skin. Before now, I’d never thought Jamie capable of hurting me. The truth was now so blatantly blazed into our history that it could never be unwritten. Without warning, he pressed closer until I could see nothing but the angry blackness of his eyes. “I’m afraid I’m not going anywhere. By the time I’m done with you, Barbette Montgomery, you’ll be crawling back to me… but I doubt I’ll want my cousin’s sloppy thirds.” “I wouldn’t hold your breath.” I wasted little time pushing him away. Tragically, the moment my hand connected with his warm skin, the electricity threatening to make my broken heart beat again became too obvious to ignore. I tried to run from it, but some inexplicable need to seal our fate had me spinning on my heel to face him again. “Better yet, Jameson, do us both the favor, won’t you?”

BLOG TOUR: Gilded Lily by Staci Hart





The wait is over! Gilded Lily, the second standalone in Staci Hart's Bennet Brothers Series, is LIVE! Trust me when I say you do NOT want to miss this one! Lila & Kash are everything. Grab your copy today on Amazon or snag this beauty in Kindle Unlimited today!


Reviewer: Tammi
Rating: 4 Stars

Another fun romantic story from Staci Hart. I smiled and laughed through most of it but at point she got me. Tears of heartache I didn't like seeing this couple huting.
Lila and Kash were total opposites!! She always wore white and  he played in dirt for a living.
She was high class and labels, he was simple life and funny Tshirts.
But together they were perfect take away all the outside stuff and they worked.
They balanced each other, learning and growing.
I loved their story!! They started as a rebound fling but I knew they would be more.
The scenes with the Kardashians-like family were shake your head, roll your eyes funny. But they hurt my girl too many times. Nope can't say we could ever be friends.

Excited to read the next one!










They say there’s no such thing as perfect.
But I’ve built my life to perfection—the perfect boyfriend, the perfect apartment, the perfect career planning celebrity weddings. My job—my only job—is to make sure every event is absolutely and completely perfect.
What’s not perfect? Kash Bennet.
And I wish I didn’t find that so appealing.
I could have told you every perfectly imperfect thing about the gardener at Longbourne. Like his hair, lush and black and far too long. Or his nose, the flat bridge of a Greek god, bent a little like it’s been broken. Or his size. Beastly. Roped and corded with muscles, gleaming with sweat and peppered with dirt.
There’s no escaping him, not if I’m going to use his family’s flower shop for my events.
But nothing is what it seems. And in the span of a heartbeat, my perfect life is turned inside out.
They say the best way to get over somebody is to get under somebody new. When Kash offers his services to the cause, it sounds like the perfect plan.
What’s not part of the plan? Falling in love with the gardener.
But they were right—there’s no such thing as perfect.
And I’m the fool who finds out the hard way.





Want more Bennet Brother goodness?


Grab Coming Up Roses, the first stand alone in the Bennett Brothers series, available now on Amazon in Kindle Unlimited!






Everyone hates parts of their job.
Maybe it’s the paperwork. Maybe it’s the day-to-day grind. Maybe it’s that client who never knows what they want, or the guy who always cooks fish in the microwave.
But not me. I love every corner of the Longbourne Flower Shop, every flower, every petal, every stem. I love the greenhouse, and I love Mrs. Bennet, my boss. I love creating, and I love being a florist. I don’t hate anything at all.
Except for Luke Bennet.
The Bennet brothers have come home to help their mom save the flower shop, and Luke is at the helm. His smile tells a tale of lust, loose and easy. He moves with the grace of a predator, feral and wild. A thing unbridled, without rules or constraint. When he comes home to save Longbourne, I almost can’t be mad at him. Almost.
He doesn’t remember that night I’ll never forget. That kiss, touched with whiskey and fire. It branded me like a red-hot iron. But it meant nothing to him.
Everyone hates part of their job, and I hate Luke Bennet.
Because if I don’t, I’ll fall in love with him.





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.

Goodbye dating app, hello grocery store, book store, dog park, and wherever else she might be able to meet a good man. And she really has nothing to lose.

A new standalone friends to lovers story!! I’m a sucker for friends to lovers story and Aiden and Lizzie have been friends for two decades. 

This was a lighter less emotion inducing story and that was a welcome change from KL Grayons typical books. All of Lizzies dates have always gone horribly wrong so she started her Boyfriend BlogThe hilarity that happens to her is serially laugh out loud funny and I had to stop myself from laughing in public. 

After years of misunderstanding resulting in then not being together Aiden has realized that Lizzie is it for him. And he goes about showing her that.

With the help of their hilarious match making neighbor these two finally get their stuff together and have the ending thy both deserve!

Excerpt:
The Boyfriend Blog
August 29, 2015
Boyfriend wanted: Loyal and funny. Wait…I just described a dog. I should buy a dog.
For real, though, Loyal and funny, that’s easy enough, right? Wrong! Do you ever ask yourself why dating in today’s society is so hard? Or where all the good guys are? Or what happened to dating before sex and *gasp* chivalry? I wish I had the answers to those questions for you, but I don’t. Unfortunately, I’m scratching my head and wondering the same things you are, which is how I ended up here in the first place. I never thought I’d be a blogger—especially one who writes about men and dating—and really, I’m not; I’m just a twenty-something girl who got her heart broken for the first time and, while drowning myself in a pint of cookie dough ice cream, thought to myself: Self, how many other girls out there are doing this exact thing? How many of us are loading up on carbs and sugar while mentally berating humans of the penis-wielding variety? I know I can’t be the only one. After proposing that same question to my sister, she suggested that I blog about it. So, whether you’re like me and are swallowing past the bitter first taste of a broken heart, or you’re on your tenth helping and somehow keep finding the courage to go back for more, this blog is for you. Let me start out by saying you are not alone. Louder for the sobbing girl in the back: YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Sit down, buckle up, and let’s enjoy this crazy ride of bad dating apps and even worse dates together. P.S. Men suck. And not in a good way. XOXO, Liz

BLOG TOUR: BOHEMIAN GIRL (Southern Girl Series #1) by Georgia Cates

 
BOHEMIAN GIRL (Southern Girl Series #1) by Georgia Cates Release Date: December 5th
 
 
 

Reviewer: Chelsea 
Rating: 4.5 stars!!

This book was previously published under the name Tap and was book one omg he Lovibond series. After a rename and cover change it’s back as Bohemian Girl.

This is the story of Lawerence ‘Law’ and Lucas. Law is the sister of Oliver who is Lucas’ partner along with Porter in thei business Iron City Brewery. 

These two fought the attraction between them so hard, they knew that Laws brother and their different wants for the future but they couldn’t stop what they were feeling for each other. 

I have already read a lot of other books by this author so I was excited to get this new series!!! I love the worlds she creates and I can’t wait for more from this series!!! 

   
Blurb: A faceless name. That’s all she was when I agreed to play a part in deceiving her. And then the unexpected happened.
We met.
I yearn for her skin against mine. I crave her scent on my body. I want to make her laugh and then moan. And I do… in secret.
I promised my business partner I wouldn’t touch his sister. But I broke that promise.
Our little dirty weekends together are no longer enough. I want my bohemian girl in my bed every night. She wants a ring, marriage vows, and babies … all things that I can’t give her.
Our romance is explosive. Our love, epic. Our ending, miserable… unless I bend.
If I don’t bend, I’ll break.
