Cover Reveal ~ Taming Hollywood’s Baddest Boy by Max Monroe

THBB - CR banner

Do people say they hate someone’s guts so that they can still fall stupidly, head-over-heels in love with the other parts?

Asking for a friend.

Taming Hollywood’s Baddest Boy, an all-new steamy laugh-out-loud romantic comedy standalone from New York Times bestselling author Max Monroe, is coming March 12th and we have the dreamy cover!

Taming Hollywood_s Baddest Boy(final cover)

Okay, fine. I’m not asking for a friend.

I’m asking for me—and I’m begging you to tell me that the practice of falling in love with your should-be-enemy is common.

Please tell me that I’m not the only person to track down a guy—who used to be Hollywood’s baddest bad boy before he left LA for good—at his off-the-grid cabin in Alaska, show up unannounced, and find him gloriously naked.

This probably happens all the time…right?

Tell me I’m not alone in my stupidity—that I’m not the only woman who would fall for gorgeous blue eyes and a sexy devilish smirk, even if they belong to a broody, mysterious jerk.

Please. Please. Please. Tell me I’m not alone in this.

For the love of everything, I need all the supportive girl power I can get if I’m going to convince Luca Weaver to come back to Hollywood—otherwise known as the place he hates so much that he ghosted Oscar-level success and escaped to no-man’s-land for the last eight years just to avoid it.

Yeah, don’t worry—that smoke you’re smelling isn’t your house catching fire as you read this…it’s just my career and what was previously known as my heart going up in flames.

Gah. Is it just me, or am I totally, completely, and utterly screwed?

Author: Aurora Rose Reynolds
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: RBA Designs

Release Date: March 3, 2020
Blurb
Waking up to a text
asking why you stood up your blind date is not the best way to start the day,
especially when the man in question is standing half dressed in your kitchen.

Maybe Dakota Newton
shouldn’t have assumed the gorgeous man with a devastating smile standing
outside the coffee shop was her date. She probably— Okay, she definitely
shouldn’t have slept with him, regardless of how hot the chemistry between them
was. But how could she know Mr. Right was actually Mr. Wrong?

Braxton Adams has
been called a few things in his life, but a liar was never one of them. That
all changes when he’s approached by a beautiful woman who thinks he’s there to
meet her for a date.

As a businessman,
Brax knows to trust his gut and never let an opportunity pass him by, so he
pretends to be someone he’s not.

Maybe he shouldn’t
have lied. Maybe he should have come clean. But in the end, it doesn’t matter,
because now he has to prove he’s not the wrong man but the right one.

So what if he’s not
the man she’s expecting? She’s the one he’s been waiting for.

Release Blitz ~ Wild at Heart by K.A. Tucker

WAH - RB banner.jpg

From the internationally best-selling author of The Simple Wild comes the continuation of a woman’s journey to Alaska and a life she never imagined for herself.

Wild at Heart, book two in the Simple Wild series by USA Today bestselling author, K.A. Tucker, is live!

Wild at Heart FOR WEB.jpg

Calla Fletcher returns to Toronto a different person, struggling to find direction and still very much in love with the rugged bush pilot she left behind. When Jonah arrives on her doorstep with a proposition she can’t dismiss, she takes the leap and rushes back to Alaska to begin their exciting future together.

But Calla soon learns that even the best intentions can lead to broken promises, and that compromise comes with a hefty price—a log cabin in interior rural Alaska that feels as isolating as the western tundra.

With Jonah gone more than he’s home, one neighbor who insists on transforming her into a true Alaskan, and another who seems more likely to shoot her than come to her aid, Calla grapples with forging her own path. In a world with roaming wildlife that has her constantly watching over her shoulder and harsh conditions that stretch far beyond the cold, dark, winter months, just stepping outside her front door can be daunting.

This is not the future Calla had in mind, leaving her to fear that perhaps she is doomed to follow in her mother’s fleeing footsteps after all.

That Second Chance by Meghan Quinn

 

That Second Chance (Getting Lucky, #1)

 

Title: That Second Chance
Author: Meghan Quinn
Rating:  4 stars
Genre: Romance
Where I got it: Kindle Unlimited

 

 

Goodreads Summary

It was supposed to be an innocent night, celebrating my brother’s birthday. Nothing was supposed to go wrong. We’d vowed to be on our best behavior after all . . .

But it only took one rowdy night with my brothers to flip my world upside down. One unlucky encounter saddled us with a family curse and the promise of doomed relationships. I laughed it off immediately. “Yeah, right,” I thought. “A love curse. Ha!”

Boy, was I wrong.

Word spreads quickly in a town like mine; rumors about that night soon made us the most eligible yet untouchable bachelors in Port Snow, Maine. As a subject of endless gossip and speculation, I could kiss my dating life goodbye.

It would have stayed that way if Ren Winters, the new girl in town, hadn’t crashed into my life. Brave, beautiful, and smart—her vivacious thirst for a fresh start has given me hope that maybe, just maybe, I can have one too.

Everyone wishes for that second chance . . . but could this really be mine?

Review

I’m a big fan of Meghan Quinn, so I was excited about a new series, especially a series abut 4 brothers, which is right up my alley.  Add in a picture-esque setting, and you have a winner.

Griffin Knightly is the oldest of his four brothers, all who hail from Port Snow, Maine. Years back, Griffin and his brothers went to New Orleans to celebrate a birthday, and they came into contact with a palm reader, whom they insulted. She then put a “curse” on them – which they ALL believe to be true, Griffin especially. Tragedy strikes Griffin, and he decides that he is no longer going to open himself to love.

Ren Winters moves to Port Snow to start fresh, and get away from her helicopter mom. She’s 28. And has a helicopter mom. Anyway, her first day in town, she gets into a little accident, thanks to a moose. Griffin, who is a volunteer firefighter, saves Ren from her car. Thus begins their friendship – it also turns out they are neighbors.

I have to admit that the “curse” aspect of this book was a little annoying. Sometimes bad things just happen. Griffin so deeply believed in this curse, that he closed himself off to love and he is only 30!

I also did not love how smothering Ren’s mom was. She was an only child, so I get that, but she’s a 28 year old woman. Come on. 

I loved the rest of the Knightly clan, and all their hilarious meddling. I can’t wait to read the next books (I’ve already downloaded #2). 

The feel of the town, which was small, felt real and was fun to read. Overall, I enjoyed this book and would recommend.

Goodreads Summary

SHANE MILLER SLEEP DIARY:

Went to bed at: Late.
How long it took to fall asleep: Forever. I have insomnia. Duh.
Number of caffeinated beverages you had consumed: Zero. Thanks for advising me to quit!

My stress level is off the charts.
I can’t sleep right on a normal day, and lately my days are filled with the best kind of chaos.
My ex-wife and husband number two are filming in Poland for three months,
so I’m turning down movie parts to focus on the most important role of my life—
impossibly charming and somewhat capable young single dad.
My son won’t stop asking questions.
My daughter won’t brush her teeth unless I sing her showtunes.
Our regular nanny quit.
The only person I could trust to hire as a temp nanny is my best friend’s sister.

If Mary Poppins and Bill Murray had a baby it would be Willa.
Fresh out of grad school and beautifully weird.
She hates my movies, and my kids adore her.
I couldn’t sleep last night because she wasn’t here.
Turns out I can’t sleep unless she’s in my house now.
Turns out she’s what’s been missing from my life all along.
If my friend had any idea what I want to do to his gorgeous troublemaker of a sister,
he would smother me with a pillow.

The chances of us succeeding as a couple are about as good as that little indie movie
that I made being a huge hit.
But it’s a chance I’m going to take.

Review

A single dad and nanny/brother’s best friend story! Yay!!!

Shane Miller is a Hollywood star with a big problem – he can’t sleep. His insomnia is affecting his life, and for the next 3 months, while his ex-wife is in Poland filming a new movie, he has sole custody of his 5-year old twins, and his nanny quits.

Willa Todd is a perfumer. She is looking for a permanent job, and living on her brother, Nico’s (who is also Shane’s best friend and former Disney co-star) couch. Willa and Nico meet up with Shane for coffee when he spills that he has lost his nanny, and Nico tells him it would be a perfect situation for Willa to fill in – as she was a nanny while she lived in Europe.

Willa is an adorkable character. I loved her so much. She was funny, sweet and great with Shane’s kids, Lucky and Summer. Of course, Willa has had a crush on Shane since she first met him when she was 12-years old and kissed the back of his hand. Now Willa is all grown up and beautiful.

Shane was such a lovable character. You immediately felt for him with his insomnia. He had a very realistic, mature relationship with his ex-wife, where they both had the interests of the children at the forefront. He was caring and a really great dad (he swore in front of his kids – I felt that was very real).

Add in two adorable and rambunctious 5 year olds and you have yourself a great story. I thought the story with Willa being a perfumer was extremely interesting. I’ve never read anything like that. I just found out that Nico’s story is coming out in a few months and I have already signed up – I’m so excited.

I would recommend this story.

Goodreads Summary

As the owner of Perfect Pairings matchmaking service, Maddie McRae earns her living helping others fall in love. And one thing the sweet Southern belle knows for sure is that the foundation of wedded bliss is built on similarities: opposites might attract, but they don’t stay together.

Enter Mason Spark.

Rude, arrogant, and notoriously allergic to monogamy, the hottest quarterback in the NFL is Maddie’s polar opposite. He’s also her new client. Her gorgeous, infuriating new client who’s paying her an outrageous sum of money to find him a wife. With his multi-million dollar contract on the line due to his behavior on and off the field, bad boy Mason is willing to pretend to settle down.

But when he starts to fall for the adorkable matchmaker who can’t stand him, the playboy finds himself in the game of his life to keep something he never thought he’d lose—his heart.

Review

I love a good story about an athlete, and I was excited when I came across this book (I featured it on my blog about a month ago, but didn’t actually request an ARC – which I now regret).

Mason Spark is the quarterback of a football team in Atlanta. He is a seriously broken man. He had a rough upbringing, which he has carried with him into adulthood. His manager, Dick, feels that in order to save his career, Mason needs to find a wife and settle down. 

Enter Maddie McRae, owner of Perfect Pairings. Maddie is tasked with finding a wife for Mason, but they immediately DO NOT hit it off. She finds him rude and annoying, and he finds her prim and prissy. Thank goodness Maddie’s wacky Auntie Waldine sees what neither Mason nor Maddie can see – that they are perfect for one another.

One thing I found interesting about this story was that both Mason and Maddie was kind of loners. In that I mean that they didn’t have that “best friend” that can rely on for everything. Mason’s best friend is his manager, Dick, and Maddie’s is her Auntie Waldine. I found that dynamic very interesting.

Mason and Maddie were both very well written characters. You could feel Mason’s pain from his childhood, and while at times he acted like a total dick, you could get where he was coming from. Maddie had issues of her own, and she held everything in – or cleaned everything in sight. I could relate to that as well.

Mason’s transformation during the course of the book was what I found most fascinating. I’m a hopeless romantic and believe in true love, and that when you meet “the one”, you know. This book proved that.

I really enjoyed this book and would recommend. It’s a bit of a slow burn, but really worth it.
