Excerpt
The smart and
rational side of my brain seems to be on a break because all I’m capable of
doing is raking my eyes over Mr. Basketball Shorts. He’s tall with broad
shoulders and the most pronounced abs I’ve ever seen up close. The baseball cap
on his head is turned backward, and he’s currently wiping his face off with
what I assume to be his shirt. That is the only reason he hasn’t seen me yet,
and why I haven’t seen his face yet either. But I’m going out on a limb here
and say it’s probably as gorgeous as the rest of him.

My eyes drift
back to his drool-worthy chest, following the beads of sweat that are slowly
running down his torso to the V-shaped lower abs until they disappear into the
pair of shorts that sits low on his hips.

Sudden heat
shoots through my body, making my cheeks tingle from the force of it. My brain
uses that moment of distraction to finally kick back in again, reminding me of
the situation at hand.

A total stranger
is standing in my kitchen.

Half-naked.

And we’re all
alone in this house.

“ADORABLE
and funny and very sweet Baby-Baker-Rockstar-Small-Town-Romance!”
– Bianca, BJ’s Book Blog

“This story was
fun and an easy read with fun-loving characters. I instantly fell in love with
Hudson and the immediate bond he had with Mira. The love story between Hudson
and Charlie is beautiful and just about proves that good things happen to good
people.” –
Drippin_inmelanin, Goodreads

“Well butter my
butt and call me a biscuit, this was so cute. If you’re looking for something
light to read on a lazy afternoon, this is pretty perfect. It’s just a really
great “make-you-feel-good” kind of book.” –
Dylan, Goodreads

Release Blitz & Review ~ Hollywood Princess by Natasha Madison

Behind the “lights, camera, action” of Hollywood lies a world of deception, love, and seduction.

Are you ready for Hollywood Royalty?

Kellie

An Oscar, a Tony, an Emmy, a Grammy—she has them all.
She’s the most sought-after woman in Hollywood.
Even if her rise to fame was a fluke, you can’t deny the camera loves her.
The problem is so does everyone else, and she’s about to leave on the biggest concert tour of her life.
Headlining for the first time in five years.

Around the world in ninety days. Should be a piece of cake.
Until her new security detail walks in the room and she’s looking into the eyes of the only man who didn’t fall for her charm.

It’s only a matter of time till he falls for Hollywood’s Princess.

AVAILABLE NOW

Amazon US | Amazon CA | Amazon UK | Amazon AU

 

 

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

5 stars

This is the second book in the Hollywood series, and honestly, this one was so much better than the first book!

Kellie Hunter is a singing megastar, and has been getting some threats from a stalker. She’s about to begin a 90-day tour and her manager decides she needs to beef up her security.  They bring in Brian Kitch, a man Kellie hit on and he spurred her advances.  She’s angry that Brian is her detail, but also relieved, because Brian is very good at his job.

Once the tour begins, sparks fly between Brian and Kellie. Brian tells Kellie he can’t do anything with her because “you don’t shit where you eat” and it goes against his moral code. Kellie sure makes it hard for him to stick to that.

This book is so good. I loved Kellie and Brian so much. I can’t tell you what a great guy Brian is. There are a few surprises about Brian I absolutely didn’t see coming, but they made the story a lot more interesting. Kellie is a great character as well. She was a little too trusting and loyal to her staff, but they were great as well. I loved her PA Cori. She was a great character.

You all know how much I love epilogues and this book has TWO!! Imagine my excitement when I figured that out! And the epilogues were really great!

Natasha Madison has very quickly become a go to author for me. I can’t wait to read Hollywood Prince, the third book in this series. I can’t recommend this book (and Hollywood Playboy) enough. They are both amazing.

Though known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances (including the Stark and Most Wanted series) that have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, JK has been writing full time for over a decade in a variety of genres including paranormal and contemporary romance, “chicklit” suspense, urban fantasy, and paranormal mommy lit.

JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” A six time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy) and in 2017 for Wicked Dirty in the same category.

She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.

Release Boost ~ The Break-Up Bet by Cat Carmine

Title: The Break-Up Bet
Author: Cat Carmine
Genre: Standalone Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 31, 2019
Blurb
Never make a bet with a man who plays to win… 
Especially not a man like handsome, arrogant Connor Pratt. 
AKA the huge PITA who’s currently crashing in my spare room. 
AKA my brother’s best friend since they were about six. 
AKA the one guy who still makes me feel like an awkward tongue-tied loser.
But when Connor moved in, I got a glimpse of another side of him. Because, like me, Connor’s going through a nasty break-up. And, like me, he’s just doing whatever he can to get through it. 
Unfortunately, his method involves drinking alarming amounts of whiskey and watching a lot of, um … movies … that make every inch of my skin flush. 
I’m just trying to be helpful when I tell him that he should try my way: copious amounts of baked goods, sappy romantic comedies, and late nights spent whining with girlfriends. 
But I should have known Connor would take that as a challenge. 
Now, he says he’ll try my way of dealing with a break-up … but only if I agree to try his. Six months rent to the person whose method works best. 
We call it the break-up bet. And I’m going to win. Except right now, it feels like there’s a whole lot more at stake than just rent money…

What I’m Currently Reading

I’m about to start reading Charming as Puck by Pippa Grant. Review is due Friday so I’m really pushing it. Luckily (not really) it’s -21 degrees and my office is closed, so I can try to get some of it read today.


What I Recently Finished

Crazy Beautiful Love by K.L. Grayson. This was a really nice story. My review will be posted tomorrow.

The Break Up Bet by Cat Carmine. This was a good book. Review to come tomorrow.


What I Plan to Read Next

Not a ton of ARC’s on deck, so I’m not sure what I will read besides this.

Happy reading.
