Today I am happy to welcome back to the blog author Kristin Miller. Kristin is currently on tour celebrating the recent release of Forbidden By Fate and has stopped by to answer some questions. Before I get to the interview, lets get to know a bit about Kristin.

Feature and Giveaway: Melt Into You by Roni Loren

Check out my review here

Her first love has returned, and he's brought a friend...
After running away from home and the boy who broke her heart, Evan Kennedy has kick-started the perfect new life with her celebrity fiancé. So what if said fiancé prefers guys? She knew the deal when they got engaged. And with her ticket to The Ranch, an exclusive resort where any fantasy can be satisfied, she can find someone to fulfill her less-than-traditional desires on the side.

She just never expected that man to be Jace Austin, her old heart-breaker—all grown up, hard-bodied, and holding out a collar. She knows it’s a world-class bad idea—especially since Jace has brought along his buddy Andre, who’s every bit as irresistible. But if they can stick to the no-strings rules, so can she.

Too bad Jace has never been so good with rules. Evan is convinced “forever” is a word used only in greeting cards, but Jace and Andre have one last fantasy of hers left to fulfill. It’s time to go big or go home. And neither man has ever been a fan of going home.

ARC Review: Melt Into You by Roni Loren

A book has to be really special to keep me up all night, and this book my friends is it. I was actually mad when I had to go to work(after staying up all night with no sleep) because I wanted to know what was going to happen. I loved this book but I will be honest I did have a few issues with it but the book was just so good I honestly don't care.

I really enjoyed the relationship between Jace and Evan. It was deep and emotional and at times painful. These two have been through hell and back and I enjoyed seeing them finally forget everything and everyone else and come together. These two were explosive and the love and lust between the two is electric. Now throw in Andre and it's damn near explosive. The scenes with the three of them are hot!

My issue is with the book is the love relationship between Andre, Jace and Evan. While I understand that all parties love each other and I do believe that they do, it's just hard for me to believe that everyone loves one another equally and want to be in a relationship permanently. It's just hard for me to believe that at some point someone won't feel left out. Also, the whole book flip flops between Evan and Jace's pov with the exception of one scene. Maybe if I would have been shown more from Andre's point of view I would have believed in the love and the relationship between everyone more. Instead, I'm left rooting for Evan and Jace to get the HEA that they so deserve. 

Don't get me wrong, this book was sooo good and I am definitely adding Roni Loren to my must read list. I just would have liked a different outcome.

Feature and Giveaway: Freestyle Love by Marcus Lopes

When it comes to one-night stands, Malachi Bishop has “rules”. No pillow talk. No sleeping over. No planning a future hook-up. First names only. It’s just sex, not a prelude to love. But when Cole Malcolm, a smooth-talking management consultant, woos Malachi into bed, the rulebook is tossed out the window. The one-time fling leaves Cole reeling: Malachi is his first real shot at happiness, his “forever” man, and he’s determined to show Malachi just how good they could be together. But Malachi doesn’t believe in happily-ever-after, and dodges Cole’s play for his heart. After all, Malachi is still mourning the loss of Taylor Blanchard, whom he hoped to love forever. Then there’s Zach Brennan, a handsome twenty-five-year-old and student at the college where Malachi teaches. Falling for Zach could destroy everything he’s worked for, but Malachi can’t help himself.

Caught by love and in its betrayal, it’s a later affair with a beautiful stranger that changes Malachi’s life most dramatically. Now Malachi must confront his present and his past that bring into question the larger fantasies of home and his place in the world.
