Cover Reveals/Blitzes

Release Blitz & Review ~ Unconscious Hearts by Harper Sloan

Ari Daniels didn’t count on her whole world tumbling down around her in a mess of shredded promises, broken love, and unbelievable heartbreak. Alone and stricken with grief, she shouldered the blame and eventually closed her heart off, refusing to open it for another. After all, anytime she tried, guilt and regret were waiting in the wings to remind her how painful it was.

A bet and one steamy night with a stranger force Ari to confront all she’s been hiding behind. She tries to move on, but he refuses to stand down, wanting what she is terrified to give—herself. This man may very well destroy her in the end, especially when it’s clear he has his own demons.

What happens when two broken souls come together, finally allowing themselves to believe in the beauty of love … only to have to fight harder than ever to keep it.

His eyes get hard for a beat before his features smooth back out. “Yeah, beyond sure. No one to pass this shit down to, and even if there was, I wouldn’t be givin’ someone ideas of materialistic bullshit if I did. More to life than all this shit.”

“Okay, well, in that case …” I cough, not wanting to fight with him about our views when it comes to expensive wants versus needs. Last time I tried to argue the benefits of learning to care for and value something you work hard to buy, I had a black eye for almost two weeks. “In that case, I’m prepared to offer you a lump sum as a buyout for the whole collection, but I also want to mention, again, that consignment would be a more lucrative approach. Our buyout is just a standard percent of resale value, but consignment would allow us to mark up each to give you a larger profit.”

“Told you, babe, want it gone. I don’t give a shit about making it more lucrative. Look around you, hardly hurting.”

“Still, it’s my obligation to make sure you’re informed.”

“Consider me informed.”

“Okay … so I can offer a tentative amount of three million. I would need more time to inspect each item in depth for any defects that could affect the value and also to research a few pieces I feel may be limited editions so that could also affect the value. Meaning that amount could go up or down, but I wouldn’t expect it to be less than two point five or more than four point seven-ish. I wouldn’t need but maybe five days tops, and I can come during the day if that works better for your schedule.”

“You get this gone in two days, and I’ll take one mil.”

My whole body jerks back as if I had been slapped, staring at him like he was absolutely insane.

“That’s absolutely insane,” I tell him, voicing my thoughts.

“No, that’s me not giving a shit and wanting it gone so I can get out of this place and sell it and all this shit some hand with care placed around each room. Woulda left this shit in and sold it with the house, but for some reason I’ll never understand, you’re here, and I still just want it gone. You don’t need five days when I’m taking a two mil hit, babe. That would waste your time and mine, and I’m not a huge fan of wasting my time. Way I see it, you win, and I get a cold mil for some shit I didn’t buy nor care about. So you get this shit outta here, and all I need is that.”

“Thorn, I can’t in good conscience accept that.”

“Then dirty that conscience up and laugh your tight little ass all the way to the bank. Don’t give a shit as long as it’s gone, and I don’t have to do anything to make it that way.”

“This is insanity.”

“Insanity would be tossing it all at the Goodwill drop-off. I’m making money. You’re making money. Only thing sweeter than making money is doing it while I’m getting my cock wet, and babe, that only happens when my stock rises at the same time my cock does.” He steps closer, and I back into the island, my chest burning as I hold my breath. “Course, never had four mil worth of shit to sell to a woman who makes my cock rise without even trying.”

“Thorn,” I whisper, placing my hand against his hard chest with the intention of pushing him back. Only, the second his warmth burns through his shirt and hits my skin, I can’t move an inch.

“Ari,” he mocks, his eyes bright.

“I, uh, the paperwork …” I close my eyes and focus on my breaths and the words my mouth can’t seem to form. When my heart slows enough that I won’t die of a heart attack right here in heaven, I look back up at him. “You’re breaking my brain, Thorn. Please step back so I can think clearly without my body trying to die on me.”

The corners of his eyes crinkle as he continues to gaze down at me, but he does step back. My arm falling down to my side.

“As much as I wish I could have this room cleared out for you tomorrow, it will take at least until late Monday. I’ll need to meet with you beforehand to have some legal paperwork signed for the sale due to its size. But my lawyer is an old family friend, so I can have that by tomorrow around dinnertime, if you wouldn’t mind meeting me to take care of that. I won’t be able to get the cashier’s check until after those are signed, so late Monday is the best I can offer you.”

“Want this shit gone, but it’s hardly a hardship to wait a few more days if that means I’ve got a few more opportunities to try to make you want me as much as you want this shit around you,” he says, his deep voice thick with desire.

“Good heavens, you don’t stop, do you?”

“Not unless you beg, babe.”

“I think it’s best we went back to keeping things professional, Mr. Evans.”

This time, it isn’t a ghost of a smile on his lips. Oh, no. Not this time. If I thought he was handsome before this moment, I was a fool. Because Thorn Evans giving you his full, unhindered smile and a gaze so thick with unspoken promise as it washes over you and creates a fire of the desire you already felt … well, that expression on him turns him from sinfully hot to heart-stopping and irresistible instantly.

“It would take me five minutes to get you to beg me for it, Ms. Daniels. Admit it.”

Offended at the thought that I’m easy, I narrow my eyes. Finally. At least anger is an emotion I’ve had plenty of practice dealing with. “I’m not sure what kind of women you’re used to, but I promise you, I am not that type of woman.”

“Maybe three,” he oddly says, ignoring me.

“Three, what?” I snap.

“Minutes, sweetness. Three minutes and you’d be begging me for all this shit and my cock.”

My mouth flounders, and I gasp.

“Though, pretty sure I could get that in less than a minute and get you doin’ all the work while I watch from my back.”

My arm is up, palm cracking against his cheek before I have the ability to do anything to stop it. “I think we’re done here.”

I walk around him, ready to find my way out and let him find someone else to take all of this off his hands even if it kills a little part of my lux loving soul. When his hand curls around my bicep—not painfully, but firm enough to make me stop—I look over my shoulder with a frown. For a man who was just slapped, he looks almost gleeful.

“One minute, Ari. Give me a minute and if you aren’t ready to beg me for it, when those sixty seconds are up, you can take this shit and not give me a penny for it.”

Walk away, Ari. Walk. Away. No amount of money is worth being some man’s whore.

Spinning away from his hold, I jerk my arm free and step toward him with a roll up to my toes, getting my face as close to his as I can. His scent overwhelms me. The subtle notes of his cologne fog my rational thought, making me drunk with need, and I sway slightly before correcting myself.

“Thirty seconds,” I retort, my jaw tight with stubbornness.

I’m not sure who I shocked more—him or me. I have my answer, though, when I see victory flash in his eyes. Oh, my God … what have I done?

“You’re on,” he agrees, his eyes alight with the promise backed up by his devilish grin.

I nod, incapable of anything more. I stand there in shocked silence as he takes my phone, his thick fingers moving quickly over the screen. I vaguely hear a chime from his pocket and before I can so much as blink, he’s handing me my things.

“Tomorrow, I’ll text you. Paperwork first, then you beg.”

I gulp, jerk my head in what I hope resembles a nod of agreement, and then … I flee.

Review

4 out of 5 stars

I have read many of Harper Sloan’s previous books, and with the exception of her Cowboy series, she writes really strong, alpha males. I was super excited at the possibility of another strong alpha, and I was NOT disappointed with this book, or the alpha, “just” Thorn.

This story centers around Ari Daniels, owner of a consignment shop and “just” Thorn Evans, owner of an adult entertainment venue. You’ll understand the “just” part when you read the book (it’s actually quite funny). A seller sets up an appointment with Ari for a large collection of products and she is instantly attracted to the man, who happens to be Thorn.

Ari has had a rough several years. She lost her parents and found her sister in bed with her fiancé weeks before her wedding – her twin sister. That betrayal devastated her. She has shut herself off from everyone to protect herself from the pain. Thorn awakens something in her and it terrifies Ari.

Thorn is trying to sell off his rich grandmother’s belongings after she passes away. The collection of items he offers Ari is worth around $4 million dollars and Thorn makes Ari a deal – 30 seconds for him to take her to bed and he’ll sell the entire collection to her for a million dollars.

Thorn has a hard time with women – he feels they only want him for his money. So when Ari presents him with a contract from her lawyer stating she’s not looking for his money, he finds it refreshing. To make Ari his, he takes her to his strip club and does a dance. As you can imagine, Ari didn’t stand a chance.

Thorn’s backstory was heartbreaking, as was Ari’s. There was a storyline with Ari’s sister, London, and Ari’s former fiancé, Thomas, that was so far fetched and unbelievable. That’s why I didn’t give the book 5 stars. Yes, it added drama, but I have a hard time believing that the plot could have happened in the real world.

Other than that storyline, I really enjoyed this book. Thorn is a TRUE alpha. I haven’t read such a good alpha in a while. I did like Ari, especially after about 20% in. I also really liked her best friend Piper and Thorn’s best friend Wilder, who the next book is about.

The book moved at a good pace, but there were a few storylines that didn’t really have a conclusion (Piper’s boyfriend, where London ended up). The writing was good and true to alpha form (lots of F bombs). And it was told in 1st person alternating POV – my favorite.

Overall, this is a really good start to a new series and I would recommend it.

Release Blitz & Review ~ Player on Ice by S.R. Grey

Title: Player On Ice
Series: A Boys of Winter Novel
Author: S.R. Grey
Genre:  Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 11, 2018
Jaxon Holland is more than a top-scoring center for the Las Vegas Wolves—he’s also the biggest “player” on the team. Women love him, flock to him, lust for his sculpted body.
Yeah, life is good for this hockey player.
Or it was until lately.
After blowing a key play in what may have been the biggest game of the season, the fans sour on Jaxon. Good thing memories are short, right? Uh, they’re not when a widely popular sports blogger, known simply as Mr. Hockeypants, calls Jaxon out and places all the blame for the loss on him.
Life goes from bad to worse, and Jaxon wants to get away.
Good thing one of his teammates has a beautiful, secluded beach house he can escape to. Sand, sun, surf, and lots of alone time sound good to this disgruntled centerman.
Only problem is the beach house is already occupied—by beautiful and spunky Cara Milne.
Cara and Jaxon are off to a rocky start after an extremely awkward first meeting. Yeah, these two pretty much hate each other. But Jaxon, forever a “player” at heart, vows to win his housemate over.
What he doesn’t know is Cara is Mr. Hockeypants! His worst enemy, the bane of his existence!
And she’s determined that he never finds out.
Too bad keeping a secret is more slippery than ice, especially when you start falling in love with the guy you almost destroyed.
Player on Ice is the fifth standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

“Hilarious and perfectly ‘played’ sports romance that I devoured in one sitting! I can’t wait to read more.” – #1 NYT Bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken

“The usual Grey crisp writing, lovable heroes that you kinda want to slap, and a heroine that doesn’t back down,” Resistance on Ice is another fun standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.” – Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills

Review

3 out of 5 stars

I received an advance reader copy in exchange for my honest review.

Cara Milne is a 22-year old woman with no job living off an inheritance in Las Vegas. She’s a huge hockey fan, and her best friend Noelle’s brother Noel plays for the Vegas hockey team, along with Jaxon Holland – the scapegoat in the team’s loss and elimination from the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Jaxon is hated because of a blog called Mr. Hockeypants – I’ll give you one guess who the author of that blog is – yep, you guessed it. After the playoffs end, and with so much grief from the Vegas fans, Jaxon needs to disappear. Lucky for him, Noel has a place in Florida on a secluded island, where nobody will bother him.

Cara and Noelle decide they need to get away, and plan to go to Noel’s place in Florida (without telling Noel – rude). Cara ends up going down before Noelle and is surprised to find Jaxon jerking off on the patio of the house. Weird.

Anyway, Jaxon and Cara get off to a very rocky start. They don’t get along and fight all the time, until they don’t. They develop feelings for one another (of course) and Cara is terrified that Jaxon will find out that she’s Mr. Hockeypants (which is a stupid blog name, in my opinion). You can pretty much predict how this book will end.

A couple of things about this book I didn’t like:

  1. The cover. That guy’s head is totally on the wrong body. It looks super weird and very different from the other covers in the series.
  2. Cara’s blog. It was very mean-spirited. No one person is responsible for a loss in hockey – it’s a team sport. The fact that her blog focused solely on Jaxon and made him a scapegoat is pretty reprehensible.

I’m a Chicago hockey fan, and my team didn’t make it to the playoffs this year. I was disappointed, sure, but it was a collective team failure that caused them to miss. I still love my team and will be watching all their games next year.  The fact that one little blog had such an impact on Jaxon’s life didn’t feel real to me. I don’t know of any real life blogs that have that kind of influence.

I liked the chemistry between Jaxon and Cara, but their relationship was pretty strange. They seemed angry at each other a lot. Cara’s mysterious inheritance was never discussed (how she got it), nor was her family. Jaxon’s family was never discussed either. It was kind of strange.

The writing was good, the story moved at a good pace, and I appreciated the fact that it was told in first person, alternating POV. But the story itself was lacking for me, which is why I only gave 3 stars. I’ve read Ms. Grey before and I like her work, and I will continue to read her in the future.

MHOnlyHimBookCover5x8_MEDIUMOnly Him, an all-new sexy and emotional second chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is available NOW!

MHOnlyHimBookWrapFB

Sometimes your first love deserves a second chance…

He was my first crush, my first kiss, my first everything.

But I’m not a lovesick teenager anymore, and I’d never let that cocky troublemaker break my heart again.

So when he shows up out of the blue asking me to have dinner with him “for old time’s sake,” I say I will. After all, it’s been twelve years, and I’m stronger and smarter than I was back then.

Except…he still does something to me. He’s got those eyes that make me weak, those hands that drive me wild, and a body I can’t resist—especially once I see the tattoos. It doesn’t take long for our trip down memory lane to go from sweet to sizzling.

We’re just as good together as we were back then—better, even—and I’m willing to give the only man I’ve ever loved another chance.

But he’s got to tell me the truth.

* * *

All I wanted was to see her again. Tell her I’m sorry. Make her smile.

Okay, that’s a lie. I wanted to do more than that—a lot more. But I know she’s better off without me, and I promised myself I’d behave.

Except I’ve never been much good at keeping promises…or my hands to myself when I’m around her.

I can make her laugh, I can make her cry, I can make her body surrender to mine in ways that neither of us could have imagined back then. I can—and I do—love her more than she’ll ever know.

But I can’t tell her the real reason why I’m here.

And I can’t stay.

Excerpt

Maren glanced back at me, more puzzled than ever, but she started up the cement stairs. I couldn’t take my eyes off her legs in front of me. Her calf muscles were insane from all the ballet training. I remembered how flexible she’d been and felt my dick start perking up.

“In addition to all the history I just gave you,” Aiden said, his voice echoing off the walls, “this hotel was also the site of a certain prom a few years back.”

All of a sudden, Maren stopped moving and looked down over her shoulder at me. “No way.” The stunned, joyful expression on her face was worth every penny I had to pay to make this happen.

Goose bumps rippled down my arms inside my jacket. I smiled at her.

Her jaw dropped, and she continued up the stairs. At the top, Aiden moved ahead and opened the door to the rooftop. “Ballrooms were not available tonight, but when Dallas asked if you could have the roof to yourselves, I had to admit no one had booked it. In fact, no one has ever even asked to book it.” He laughed.

Maren stepped over the threshold onto the rooftop. “Dallas is definitely one of a kind.”

The three of us moved away from the door, and I saw the table that had been set for us, complete with white linens, flower centerpiece, and candlelight. Luckily, the air was warm, and the wind was soft. The sun was still setting beyond the skyline to the west, and to the east the Detroit River was visible; a little to the south was the Ambassador Bridge, and beyond the river, Canada. The view was breathtaking on all sides.

After turning around in a full circle, Maren looked at me with shining eyes. “Dallas. This is incredible.”

“You’ll have your own server for the night, and he should be up shortly,” Aiden said, checking his watch. “I should get back downstairs. Dallas, you have my cell if you need anything. Maren, good seeing you again, and I hope you enjoy your evening.” He gave us a smile before heading back to the stairwell door.

As soon as he was gone, Maren turned to me. “I cannot believe you did this.”

I shrugged. “I felt pretty bad when you said you’d missed the prom because of me. I figured I owed it to you.”

She laughed and rolled her eyes, which were filled with tears. “You didn’t, but whatever. I’ll take it.” Opening her purse, she hunted around in it for something. “God, I don’t even have tissues. I didn’t know you were going to make me cry.”

“No crying allowed at the prom. And I hope it’s okay I’m wearing jeans.”

“It’s fine.” She sniffed and closed her purse. “I’m not that dressed up either.”

“You’re perfect.” Our eyes met, and the air between us suddenly felt full of hope and possibility. In any other circumstance, I’d have kissed her.

But I couldn’t do that tonight.

“Oh, I almost forgot.” Reaching into the inside pocket of my jacket, I pulled out a wrist corsage. “Sorry if it’s a little smashed. I had to get rid of the plastic container to hide it from you.”

She giggled and held out her arm. “That’s okay. It’s beautiful.”

“Good.” I slid the elastic band with three deep red roses attached to it along with some other green stuff onto her wrist. “I told the lady at the florist to make it a prom corsage. Pretty sure she thought I was crazy. Or creepy.”

“You might be crazy. But I love it. Thank you for this.” Then she rose up on tiptoe and pecked my cheek. When she lowered her heels, she stood there for a moment, her hand on my arm, her mouth so close I could have simply tipped my head down and my lips would be resting on hers.

My heart stumbled over its next few beats. I wanted to do it so badly, but I’d promised her I’d behave. I’d promised myself I’d behave. There were so many reasons why I shouldn’t be here tonight, standing so close to the only girl I’d ever loved, tempted beyond reason by her legs and her lips and her laugh and her eyes and her ability to make me feel like I fucking mattered in the universe.

What was the right thing to do?

If only—

The door from the stairwell opened, and we moved apart.

Review

3 out of 5 stars

I read Only You and really liked it, but I’m going to be really honest – I struggled with this one.

Without giving much away, there is a very tough topic in this book that I a) wasn’t expecting and b) didn’t much appreciate (especially with no warning in the summary). I won’t spoil, but I had a really hard time with this topic.

Maren is a yoga instructor who lives in the Detroit area (as do all MH’s characters). She has been having a recurring nightmare and she doesn’t know what it means. Her sister encourages her to go see a psychic, and her sister gets some really interesting information. Maren is not convinced. Turns out Maren was hurt terribly years ago by Dallas, her first love who disappeared without a word.

Twelve years later, Dallas shows up on her doorstep unannounced and they start talking again.  They start hanging out and feelings get involved.  Except Dallas has a huge secret he doesn’t share with Maren.

I have a few issues with this book. One was how quickly Maren forgave Dallas.  He hurt her very badly and yet she forgave him so fast.  I also had a hard time with the “issue” surrounding Dallas. It seemed really unnecessary. Dallas is also one of those “I was never good enough for my parents” guys. I found that annoying.

The ending was pretty good, as well as the epilogue, but it wasn’t enough to save this book for me. I will certainly continue to read this author, and I will read the next book in the series for sure. This book just wasn’t as good as some of her other material for me.

You want some?
She snarls those words at him with barely concealed hostility the moment he arrives at her window to ask for her license and registration.
After a few choice words, he lets her go with not one ticket, but three.
Next time she should check the attitude at the door and realize that he’s a cop, and just doing his job.

Knowing he should stay away, he takes a step back and tries not to think about anything that has to do with those long legs, and that mouth that could be used for much better things than spewing venom.
Then she makes a mistake.
At an interview, she rattles off a random number to use as a reference for a job that she desperately needs, and that number just happens to be Johnny’s.
