Feature and Giveaway: To the Studs by Roxanne Smith



No one says no to fiery but talented home designer Neve Harper—which is how she convinces her elusive neighbor, Duke Kennicot, to help out with her latest renovation job. Not only is Duke a design aficionado, he’s got the inside scoop on the cabin’s owner. And since Neve’s ulterior motive is a romance with the boss, Duke is her ideal wingman. Except from the moment they’re alone in the remote Ozark mountain location, Neve discovers Duke is just as headstrong—and a whole lot sexier—than she ever realized. Duke has always made it clear she’s not his type. Yet the simmering tension between them says otherwise….

Duke had been warned to steer clear of hot-tempered Neve, but his resolve is lessening with every heated exchange—and every smoldering touch. By the time Neve unearths a dangerous, age-old mystery buried on the property, Duke is ready to do just about anything to keep the brazen beauty safe….

Review: Undisputed by A.S. Teague


I was given the chance to read Undisputed by A.S. Teague completely blind through the Quirky Blind Date with a Book group. This was so much fun for me, and this gave me the opportunity to take a chance on a book and author that I might never have otherwise. When you sign up for a Quirky Blind Date with a Book, you pick the book based on a brief line about the book without knowing anything else about it. This one immediately grabbed my attention and while I did like this book there were a few things that kept me from fully loving it.

When MMA champ Brec meets Sidney, he knows that she isn't his type at all. Yet he finds himself drawn to her in a way that he has never been drawn to anyone before. When he meets her sick nephew and realizes all that Connor and Sidney are facing, Brec realizes that for the first time he wants something else for his life. But when their world is turned upside down, can they figure out a way to survive together or will their growing connection end before it ever really starts? 

While I liked Brec at times, I struggled with his character as well. He was a total cocky manwhore at the beginning of this story, and while he did get better over the course of this book I did still have some issues with how he acted. There was one specific incident that truly pissed me off, and that was when he first introduced Sidney to Rebecca. I would have never been okay with what he did, and I felt like it was completely glossed over and swept under the rug. (Kind of like several things here) I also struggled with Sidney at times, though I did like her character. She was great with her nephew Connor, but when it came to her sister Abby, she was a complete pushover. She never really stood up to her, letting Abby get away with being completely absent while her son was sick. The one time she actually stood up to her, Abby gave an excuse and Sidney immediately backed off and things were fine. I just couldn't fully get over it, and it was really hard for me to relate to any of these characters. There was chemistry between Brec and Sidney, but I didn't fully buy into their connection. I just felt like it wasn't very deep and we didn't see it fully form. 

Overall, this one was just okay for me. I did like Connor, he stole absolutely every scene that he was in and was adorable. I loved his attitude and the fact that he embraced his situation and went about things the best he could. His character was inspiring and he made this book. I just wish that Sidney and Brec had been as great as he was. I also thought that Tripp and Rebecca were together throughout this entire book, but then I was looking into things after finishing and Rebecca has a book with someone else which completely threw me off. I don't know if I was oblivious the whole way through and just missed something or if something happened, but I have to say that I am completely confused now. I am definitely interested in reading it now though to see what happens with Rebecca and to see how things are progressing for all these characters after the end of this one. I think that A.S. Teague has a lot of promise, and there were a lot of things to like here. It just wasn't fully there for me though, and in the end I just liked it instead of loving it.

ARC Review: Hard Wired by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell


I was so excited for Cherry and Garvy's story and couldn't wait to dive into Hard Wired by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell. The Cyber Love series is one of my favorites, and Hard Wired was everything I had hoped it would be! While this is the third installment in the Cyber Love series, each book is a standalone with interconnected characters. While you can read this without having read the others, I highly recommend starting at the beginning though as these books are fantastic!

Cherry and Garvy have known each other online for awhile now, but as mod's for Kai's channel, everyone has always assumed that sweet Cherry was a girl. When the two are set to speak at a conference in Kai's place, Garvy is looking forward to meeting Cherry even though he hasn't heard from Cherry when he tried to make contact beforehand. But when he meets the sexy dark artist Cerise, he decides to spend the night exploring his strong attraction to him, now that he has admitted that he is into other guys. But when he shows up for the panel the next morning, he is shocked to realize that Cerise and Cherry are one and the same. After the conference they return home, and soon begin to wonder if everything should go back to the way things were or if there is something there between them worth exploring. 

I absolutely loved Cherry and Garvy. I have been fans of them from the beginning, even when Garvy was a bit of a jerk at times and clearly into Kai. But I really enjoyed getting to know these two here and seeing what made them tick. They were great for one another, and I loved how they had things in common but were really different as well. The chemistry between Cherry and Garvy was so hot, and I couldn't get enough of them together. I loved that they were so much more than just physically attracted to one another though, and that their connection was so strong.

The one thing that kept this book from being a five star read for me though, was the fact that there were some issues between them when it came to Cherry's persona Cerise. I felt like while they came to a point they could move forward, that things weren't entirely resolved. It just wasn't fully dealt with and was sort of brushed under the rug. I would have liked for them to have been more on the same page about things there. I really did enjoy this book though, and despite my criticism I think that this book might be my favorite of the series yet. I just loved everything about these two, and I highly recommend it!
