BLOG TOUR & REVIEW: KILL SWITCH BY PENELOPE DOUGLAS

Kill Switch by Penelope Douglas
Release Date: February 11th


Kill-Switch-EBOOK (1).jpg


Kill Switch, an all-new standalone dark romantic suspense by Penelope Douglas.

WINTER
Sending him to prison was the worst thing I could’ve done. It didn’t matter that he did the crime or that I wished he was dead. Perhaps I thought I’d have time to disappear before he got out or he’d cool off in jail and be anything but the horror he was.
But I was wrong. Three years came and went too fast, and now he’s anything but calm. Prison only gave him time to plan.
And while I anticipated his vengeance, I didn’t expect this.
He doesn’t want to make me hurt. He wants to make everything hurt.

DAMON
First thing’s first. Get rid of her daddy. He told them I forced her. He told them his little girl was a victim, but I was a kid, too, and she wanted it just as much as I did.
Step two… Give her, her sister, and her mother nowhere to run and no fuel to escape. The Ashby women are alone now and desperate for a knight in shining armor.
But that’s not what’s coming.
No, it’s time I listened to my father and took control of my future. It’s time I showed them all—my family, her family, my friends—that I will never change and that I have no other ambition than to be the nightmare of their lives.
Starting with her.
She’ll be so scared, she won’t even be safe in her own head by the time I’m done with her. And the best part is I won’t have to break into her home to do it.
As the new man of the house I have all the keys.


Kill Switch is suitable for readers 18+. While it can be read as a stand-alone, all of the characters are developed throughout the series. The first two books, Corrupt and Hideaway, are now available through Kindle Unlimited!

Excerpt:

WINTER 

“I’m sixteen, and I’ve never been kissed.” I put my hands on his chest, feeling my breasts grazing his body. “I waited for you.” “Winter…” “I waited for you,” I repeated, panting and brushing his lips with mine. “But I won’t wait forever.” I layered my lips with his and dipped my tongue out, flicking his lip as I rolled my hips on him. The unmistakably hard ridge of his cock rubbed against my panties through his jeans, and I moaned. He grabbed me under my arms, holding me up to his face. “That better not be a threat,” he bit out. And then he took my face in one hand and snatched up my lips, biting my bottom one, almost chewing it like he was starving. He groaned, I whimpered, and we both gave in, holding each other in our arms, our mouths melting together. I was fast and clumsy, and I couldn’t keep up with his kisses and tongue in my mouth, but I loved every second. He nibbled and bit and took with force, gripping the back of my hair to tip my head back and eat at my neck. He moved from my throat to my chin to my jaw and then back to my mouth, and I clutched at his shoulders, tugging on his sweatshirt as I dry-humped him. God, I couldn’t stop myself. He felt so good. It was like an itch that I needed to scratch more and harder. I tugged at my bow tie, unable to breathe. Pulling it loose, I unbuttoned my top button, finally feeling freer and diving in, hugging him to where he was sucking on my neck. My hips moved back and forth, grinding into him “Winter…” he groaned, pulling back. “I don’t want to…” I picked up pace, and he grabbed my ass, helping me move. “Don’t want to what?” I gasped out. “Make you dirty.” I slowed, touching his mouth with mine and kissing him softly. Why would he think that? “You won’t.” I shook my head, touching his face. “We won’t go all the way. We’ll just play.” He breathed out a laugh. I kissed him, and he dug his fingers in again, making my body explode and every inch of skin come alive. God, I loved it when he did that.

What He Never Knew, a standalone teacher/student romance in the What He Doesn't Know series by bestselling author Kandi Steiner is live!


WHNK Cover.png

BLURB

I never learn my lesson.
And I always want what I can’t have.
When Sarah Henderson walks into my life, I tell myself she’s off limits. She’s my student, sixteen years younger than me, and my boss’s niece. It doesn’t matter that I see the same pain reflected in her eyes that I have in my own, or that the dead organ better known as my heart kicks to life when she’s around.
I’ve been here before, and I know how this ends.
It’s been two years since I fell for the last woman I knew I couldn’t have, the one with the ring on her finger that I chose to ignore.
Two years of trying to overcome that heartache when Sarah slides into my life.
Another woman I can’t have. Another woman I can’t stop myself from wanting.
I never learn my lesson, but with a constant reminder of how that last forbidden love burned, I think I’ve finally learned this one.
This time, I won’t chase what’s off limits.
This time, I’m staying away.
And I’ll keep telling myself that until I believe it.

REVIEW:

REVIEWER: EBBIE
RATING: 5 Groupie Stars

What He Never Knew is the third book in the series. This book is about Reese. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on his story. In so many ways I can relate to Reese; I never learn my lesson and always want what I can’t have. 

When Sarah starts taking piano lessons from him, he knows she’s different. She makes him feel things he shouldn’t and thought he never would again. Sarah has her own issues and all she really has left in her life that she’s passionate about is the piano.

This book was everything I expect from Ms. Steiner and so much more. It has the angst, romance, drama, humor and all the feels. Ms. Steiner has a way with words that is magical. She can tell a story and I feel like I’m in it with the characters. Speaking of characters; Sarah is an amazingly strong heroine. Reese is a great hero and they are more alike than he’d like to admit. This story will hit you in the feels.

About Kandi:

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

Author Bio

A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories. 

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.

When she's not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you've ever seen, Eva's creating chapters in her own love story.

RELEASE BLITZ AND REVIEW: THE (HALF) TRUTH BY LEDDY HARPER

 

The (Half) Truth, an all-new standalone emotional romance by Leddy Harper is NOW LIVE!

 
 
From bestselling author Leddy Harper comes a sizzling romance about an aspiring young chef who may discover that the perfect recipe for love involves all accidental ingredients…
Tatum Alexander is so close to realizing her dream of becoming a sous chef she can taste it, but working at her ex-fiancé’s restaurant with his new girlfriend was never in her career plan. To save face and prove she’s moved on, Tatum cooks up a lie that she’s in a relationship with her best friend’s superhot cousin. There’s just one problem: Jason only recently moved to town, and he has no idea they’re already “dating.”
Jason’s a recovering ladies’ man who shouldn’t be on the menu, but that doesn’t mean he’s immune to Tatum’s quirky charm. Giving her lie a kernel of truth, they decide some no-strings-attached fun between the sheets can’t hurt. But as Tatum’s forced to keep making up stories to cover her original fib, she has a hard time separating what’s real and what’s fake—including her feelings for Jason.
With too many tales spun, Tatum can only watch in horror as her collection of yarns begins to unravel, leaving everyone she cares about feeling betrayed. After so many lies, will it be too late to set the record straight? And more importantly, will she be able to convince Jason there’s truth in their love?

REVIEW:
REVIEWER: EBBIE
RATING: 4 Groupie Stars

The (Half) Truth is a funny story about Tatum. She wants to be a sous chef so bad she’ll do anything including working with her ex’s girlfriend. She comes up with a fib that she’s dating her best friends cousin. This all leads to some very funny and awkward moments for them all until all of the lies start to unravel. 

I loved the characters! They were funny, quirky and relatable.  Tatum was a great female lead. I loved her quirkiness. She funny and I felt everything she was going through. Jason was such a sweetheart and a genuinely good guy. He was a player who moved home to be near family and start over. The lines of truth and lies gets blurred very quickly and it became hard for Tatum to keep it all straight. 

The story line was original and made for a quick read. I couldn’t wait to see what Tatum would get herself into next. If you like a romcom I highly recommend this book. 


   

About Leddy Harper

Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped.
She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.
She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.
The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.

REVIEW: 

REVIEWER: KIM
RATING: 4.5 STARS

Luck of the Devil is book 2 in the Forge Trilogy. You need to read the books in order.
After book 1 finished I was so excited for the next book to release. The story picks up where it left off and this book just sucks you in further to the characters lives. 
This book was more about peeling back the layers of the cold, ruthless man that I had grown to love. 

We get to see more of the backstory about him and what motivates and drives him.
The extra information we learn about him is great and key to working out the infamous Jericho. The more in to the story we get the more I fall in love with him. He's determined, strong, powerful, rich but he also has genuine feelings for India and I liked seeing that side of him coming out.

His past is riveting. I wanted to know more and more about it and found myself glued to my kindle wanting more and more information.

I don't think Jericho could make me love him any more than I did in book 1. I was happy with his development and getting to know him but I also know there will be more to find out about him in the next book.

The book ended in a massive cliff hanger. I never thought the cliff hanger could have been as big as the first one but I was wrong.
Bring on book 3.

BLOG TOUR: The Son and his Hope by Pepper Winters

TS&HH - BT banner.jpg


The Son and His Hope by Pepper Winters
Release Date: February 12th


ebook.jpg


The Son and His Hope, a sweeping standalone from New York Times Bestselling author Pepper Winters.
“Things you should know about me from the very beginning:
I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son.
I am happy being alone.
And that is all I ever want to be.”
JACOB
The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson.
It wasn’t a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow.
That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man.
And nothing and no one could change his mind.
HOPE
I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent’s life.
He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive.
I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of sorrow that made me want to hug and heal him.
I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father.
We shared similarities.
I recognised parts of him because they were parts of me.
But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried.
He stayed true to his vow to never fall.

REVIEW:

REVIEWER: Kim
RATING: 5 Stars

Outstanding story that was wrote incredibly well.
After reading the first 2 books in the series, how good they were and how incredibly sad I never thought this book would stand out. I definitely never thought it would contain the same amount of emotion through out the story so when reading it and tearing up quite soon in to the story I was suprised. I was also happy to as I wanted to feel that type of emotion that I felt throughout the first books.
Jacob was a destroyed character. I understood why he was that way from reading the other boojs . He grew up without a dad and living the heartbreak of that everyday if his life. It damaged him and shut him off from so much.
Hope was the complete opposite of Jacob. She has experienced loss but it's made her live life harder. She can't work out though why Jacob doesn't life live to the most and treasure the time he has instead of living with so much hurt.
She really challenged Jacob and pushed him beyond himself. The best but was she called him out when he was wrong and that's exactly what he never knew he needed.
The Son and his Hope was epic. It was breathtaking and very raw in places. It gave me goosebumps and I couldn't put the book down. I found myself flying through the pages.
I loved every sad moment, every heart break, all the anger but also all the happiness and love.

REVIEW

REVIEWER: TAMMI
RATING: 4 stars

This book is dark!! It has subject that will make you cringe and whince at the treatment of our heroine. But the authors warn you and I applaud  that. I don't have triggers but some readers do and there are warnings without spoilers. That is why I applaud them.
Young friendship torn apart in the cruelest way. Izzy is taken away and tortured for so long. Stryker continues live with half his heart missing but rescue and revenge are always his plans.
What an interesting way to have these characters reconnect WOW! 
I loved the story that followed. The strength Izzy has after such mental and physical abuse is AMAZING to watch.
In the end it is a love that overcame insurmountable obstacles. And those are the romance stories I enjoy the most.
The next one looks to just as good!!''
