RELEASE DAY ~7 DIRTY LIES BY ALEXIS ANNE~

Title: 7 Dirty Lies
Author: Alexis Anne
Series:
Release Date: August 17, 2017
It was right out of one of my movies:

Tropical island, sexy single man, two hot nights of nameless passion.

Except instead of falling into each other's arms, we went our separate ways, never to be seen again.

Of course I thought about him all the time. The way he laughed, the way he saw right through me, the way he took no shit as his strong hands roamed my body. If there was one night I could repeat, it would be that one.

I never expected to see my mystery man again.

Fast forward to my new movie set and the handsome property owner. Yep, same guy. Same sexy, sexy guy. Our chemistry is still off the charts but there’s one tiny problem: he doesn’t trust me.

Okay, so I skipped a few important details. I don’t blame the guy. But they were just little white lies. Unfortunately if I want that movie-perfect ending I’m going to have to set the record straight...and hopefully have a little fun in the process.
Sweet, incredibly sexy, and heart-melting. 7 Dirty Lies was exactly the book I didn't know I needed in my life. I was anticipating a good read, but what I got was SO MUCH MORE. GAH! Lily and Colt were two halves of a perfect, adorable, and SUPER steamy whole. Both with their own hang-ups and past troubles, but when they were together those troubles didn't seem so big or insurmountable. This book truly gave me all the feels. If you're looking for a warm-fuzzy read with a strong dose of sexiness, this is it!!

Happy Reading!

RELEASE BLITZ ~TOYING WITH HER BY PRESCOTT LANE~

Title: Toying with Her
Author: Prescott Lane
Release Date: August 17, 2017
No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s best selling vibrator, it’s near impossible. Yep, that’s right. That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child. It’s aptly named Woman on Top. And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top.

So I’m headed home to my Southern roots. It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more. But Rorke Weston has other plans for me. Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him. 

It’s been said you never forget your first. For me, that’s definitely true. No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke. 

He’s turned into quite a man. Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long. And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue. 

Rorke wants his chance. The one we never had. But that was a long time ago. When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever Afters. Even ten years later, I feel a pull. And it’s not simply Rorke yanking down my panties. 

Do second chances really happen? Or is my heart simply toying with me?
Heaven knows I L O V E me a second-chance romance. But TOYING WITH HER didn't just stop there. Ms. Lane took it so much further with equal parts sensuality, sexiness, sweetness, and hilarity. This book was EXACTLY what I needed to take a break from reality and immerse myself in something warm and safe. Sterling is a strong female lead that I could connect with. Rorke was equally as strong and sexy to boot, and so darn SWOON-WORTHY. 

Of course, it can't be all lovey dovey and sex all the time. There is plenty of intense and heart-gripping real life weaved into this book. And as you get into the dual POV between Rorke and Sterling you really get to see and know both of them. It offers the readers an inside to their feelings and emotions that are ever-so needed as the book goes on. 

I was a Prescott Lane virgin, but now I'm a Prescott Lane junky. I will absolutely be reading any book of hers I can get my hands on. Sterling and Rorke's story was just so damn delightful and perfect!

Happy Reading!

REVIEW ~THE WRIGHT MISTAKE BY KA LINDE~

Title: The Wright Mistake
Author: K.A. Linde
Release Date: August 8, 2017

My Rating: 4 STARS
A new stand alone enemies-to-lovers romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde...

I spent six weeks screwing Austin Wright’s brains out and all I got was this broken heart.

He can’t be trusted. Not with my body or my heart. Yet, two years have passed and I still crave him like an addict needing a fix.

The last time we tried this, it nearly ruined me. I know I should run and never look back. But his dark haunted eyes and razor blade smile speak to my soul. His touch sets my body on fire. And we all know what happens when you light gasoline. Someone is bound to get burned.

A second chance might destroy us both.

Because everyone knows two wrongs don’t make a Wright.

So many feels for this book. Austin and Julia experienced such extremes in their relationship, and just about broke my heart. When they're together they're good and everything is is (w)right in the world. But when stress and real life impede in their bubble that's when Austin likes to take the destructive way out. I know his struggles. I've seen them first hand. And with the exception of the romantic side of things, his actions were spot-on and struck a chord. Julia is one hell of a strong woman. What she's been through and what she goes through with Austin, any weaker of a person would collapse under the pressure. But not this spitfire. She takes it in stride and keeps her head up. 

I always have problems with addict storylines. It stems from first-hand experience with an addict that I can't quite believe in the romaticism of it. Not that Austin's situation turned into roses and hearts, it was ugly and gritty and heartbreaking at times, but it was also wonderfully sweet and sexy too and it just doesn't jive with the cold reality of what it's really like living with an addict. Again, though, this is a romance and it is fiction. And from those standpoints, I loved it and it was definitely a page-flipper for me. In all, this book delivered on so many counts and I enjoyed every bit of it. I will say that one twist for one of the Wright siblings, just about gutted me, but there are hints of happiness coming that I see and oh boy am I excited for Patrick and Morgan's story too!! Soooo excited! The Wright Family series is one that I love to engross myself in. It's wonderful and real and raw. 

Happy Reading!

Author: Laurelin Paige
Series: Dirty Duet #2
Release Date: September 11, 2017
I’ve discovered Donovan Kincaid’s secret.

It’s dirty and filthy and rich – as dirty and filthy and rich as he is – and it haunts me as much as he ever did.

Even after knowing what I know now, I still want to talk to him, to touch him. But there’s an ocean between us, and I’m not sure it can be crossed with something as easy as a phone call or a plane ride.

Yet I’m willing to try.

He doesn’t know this yet, but this time I’m the one with the power. And maybe – just maybe – if the air were cleared and all our secrets bared, there could still be a chance for us. 

And this dirty, filthy thing between us might end up being love after all.
Title: Dirty Filthy Rich Men
Author: Laurelin Paige
Series: Dirty Duet #1
Release Date: March 27, 2017
When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.

I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn't stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

Because when dirty, filthy, rich boys play, they play for keeps.



USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine. She's also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn't do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
