Healing

Image
Edgar-Allen Church AKA "Church" is released from the system.  He needs to help to get back on his feet.  He turns to the one person he never thought he would see again.

Miller felt bad about the last time he saw Church.  This is his chance to repair the damage for both of them.  What he learns about himself and his friendship, however, may change them both for good.
Seriously sweet even with a dark tone.  I found myself compelled to read about these complex characters.  Each page had more surprises.  I am eagerly awaiting the next installment in the Woodbury Boys series.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Defenseless

This new series starts off with a bang as the Tate Brothers learn about what their father expects from his will and other documents.  It sets them all off, as they are SEAL's and don't take what he tells them lightly.  This book is the focus of Sullivan Tate's request.

Sullivan AKA "Van"  is a pretty important figure from Chloe's childhood.  So when he tells her the latest news to protect her, is hits her hard.  Already reeling from the loss of her father, the added strain makes her even more vulnerable.  She turns to Van to feel stronger and solve what seems to be the unsolvable.
This is already a really exciting series!  I love the characters so much already.  The male lead is totally H-O-T and really alpha.  He seems to be so focused on what needs to be done.  I cannot wait to see them again in later books.  I am also very excited to read the next installment in the Tate Brothers series.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Blog Tour w/Review - A Charmed Little Lie

Image
Spinning a story of a joyous marriage to make a dying woman happy is forgivable, isn’t it? A CHARMED LITTLE LIE Charmed in Texas #1 Sharla Lovelace Releasing April 18th, 2017 Lyrical Shine Lanie Barrett didn’t mean to lie. Spinning a story of a joyous marriage to make a dying woman happy is forgivable, isn’t it? Lanie thinks so, especially since her beloved Aunt Ruby would have been heartbroken to know the truth of her niece’s sadly loveless, short-of-sparkling existence. Trouble is, according to the will, Ruby didn’t quite buy Lanie’s tale. And to inherit the only house Lanie ever really considered a home, she’ll have to bring her “husband” back to Charmed, Texas for three whole months—or watch Aunt Ruby’s cozy nest go to her weasel cousin, who will sell it to a condo developer. Nick McKane is out of work, out of luck, and the spitting image of the man Lanie described. He needs money for his daughter’s art school tuition, and Lanie needs a convenient spouse. It’s a match made . . . well, no…

Honest

Dean & Coriander AKA Cori are best friends.  Yes, just friends.  Only everyone around them either doesn't believe them, or thinks they should be together.  How can one find a significant other in the middle of all of this?

Cori wants to settle down.  Dean wants to be the best friend for her that he can be.  So what if he is suddenly finding himself thinking of her all day and all night.  Is this the time to take a chance?  Would the future be brighter if they gave it a try?
This was a such a fun and easy read.  I really love these characters.  They truly care about one another.  The sexy times between them are hot too.  Such an incredible and funny book!  I loved it and found it hard to put down.  Sure hope we visit these characters again soon.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Crazy

This is book #12, from the amazingly funny Shopping For A Billionaire series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  It will contain spoilers, and you will have greater understanding, should you read the series in order.
Andrew & Amanda have been though enough already.  Now, as they plan their wedding the press and extended family are on their backs wanting the wedding their way.  Has everyone on earth, including her mother forgotten who is really getting married here?
Amanda has had it.  With everyone - literally everyone - wanting a piece or a picture of her, it is getting to be too much.  She has the perfect line in the book.  "I didn't fall in love with a CEO.  I fell in love with a man."
Swoon.  This is another of some of the best romance books ever written.  I am a firm believer that all lover's of romance should get this series.  I laugh, I cry, my breath stops, and my heart starts beating again.  I loved every page!  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty'…

Blurb:
Confirmed bachelor Max Sterling isn't into rescuing damsels in distress, but when the very tempting Hailey Ellison needs his help, there's only one thing for him to do. Step in and pose as her loving fiancĂ©. Except there is nothing fake about his attraction to her, or how much he wants her beneath him in his bed, moaning his name. But what starts as a sexy, flirty, temporary engagement, quickly becomes something more serious that neither one ever anticipated.

Release Blitz - Shopping for a CEO's Wife

Image
Title: Shopping for a CEO's Wife Series: Shopping for a Billionaire #12 Author: Julia Kent

Genre: Romantic Comedy Release Date: April 25, 2017

Blurb:
Snowbound. Sounds so romantic, with visions of cuddling before a roaring fire, hot chocolate spiked with brandy, and a secret elopement.

Wait. What?
My fiancé's father won't stop trying to turn our pending wedding into a three-ring media circus so he can get free publicity for his family's Fortune 500 company. My mother has decided she's done with All Things Wedding and asks her teacup Chihuahua for mother-of-the-bride advice.
They've all gone certifiably mad.
Then the stress from the wedding puts my mother in the hospital, I scream at my future father-in-law in front of a camera crew and the video goes viral, and the romantic wedding that started with Andrew's grand Pride and Prejudice proposal looks less like Jane Austen and more like Dostoyevsky.
So what do you do when you're a fixer and you can't fix somethin…
