Feature and Giveaway: Lord of Lies by Amy Sandas

“You do strange things to me, Dell Turner. Tell me I am not alone in what I feel.”

Dell Turner grew up in London’s back alleys and gin lanes. Vowing to escape his low beginnings, he hires himself out to society’s elite. When he accepts a job from a beautiful debutante, he doesn’t anticipate her relentless determination to join his mad occupation…or her unnerving ability to inspire emotions he thought long buried.

Feature and Giveaway: Hate to Love Him by Jody Holford

Brady Davis is as happy as he is charming. Usually. Unless he’s in the same room with the frustratingly gorgeous antidote to his cheer. Mia Kendrick is headstrong and determined. She’s done with men who stand in her way—even if he has arms like Thor and a smile that makes her dizzy. Whenever they’re together, sparks fly—both the bad and good kind.

When Mia returns home to take over management of Kendrick Place, Brady is worried her focus on big business could be the end of his tight-knit home and the family he’s created there. Mia may have the power to change everything, but Brady could have the power to change her mind…if he can get inside her heart.

ARC Review: Clipped by Remy Blake

I really give this book about 2.7 stars but I rounded up to 3 stars. I absolutely did not love this book. I didn't hate it....but I didn't love it.

This is kind of standard contemporary romance fare. I picked it up because it had a "twist" that I thought I would enjoy. The heroine, Avery, had been bullied in high school for being OCD. In fact, the hero, Wes, was one of Avery's former tormentors. I had really hoped this book was going to be kind of a redemption story because I love to see characters who had it rough in the past turn things around. The problem for me was that Wes acted like the same exact childhood bully at times in the story. It completely turned me off. A good example is one of the opening scenes of the book. I won't tell you exactly what happens but Wes' behavior was not just some of the same bullying, it was also ridiculously immature. I was like 'wait, how old are these characters again?'

And then there is Avery. Even though Wes is boorish, arrogant and has a really...truckerish sense of humor, Avery is constantly suffering from an irresistable attraction to him. And I get it, I really do. I have been attracted to some complete jackholes. The struggle is real when it comes to really attractive men with horrible personalities but Avery, girl! Pull yourself together. If the dude takes something painful and awful from your past and makes it a public joke, murder those dumb ass butterflys in your stomach and at least maintain a firm scowl.

Ok, I think I liked this book even less than I thought. The more I think about it, the more Wes and Avery's reaction to him irritates me. If you love all things enemies to lovers, you might want to try this. I think there are better enemy to lover romances out there for you to try.

Feature and Giveaway: Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon

Don’t trust lust at first sight. One woman chooses reality over fantasy in this friends-to-lovers romance.

Jacqueline: As an adult woman—and the vice president of a marketing firm—I shouldn’t be waiting by my office window to ogle the mystery man who jogs by every morning at 11:45. Sure, he’s a gorgeous, perfect specimen of the human race, but I can’t bring myself to hit on a total stranger. However, my best friend–slash–colleague Vince Carson thinks I should do more than talk to the guy. In fact, he’s borderline obsessive about “getting me laid.” (His words.) But the more time we spend together, the more it’s clear: The one I’m falling for is Vince.

Vince: Jackie Butler’s got it bad for some pompous, over-pumped A-hole who struts his stuff past her window. That doesn’t bother me. I know she deserves nice things. What does bother me is that she friend-zoned me big-time last year, so I can’t ask her out myself. But what if I set her up with Mr. Steroids? Then, when he breaks her heart, I can swoop in and save her like the nice guy I am. Everything’s going according to plan . . . until we share a ridiculously epic kiss. And suddenly anything is possible.

ARC Review: The Hunting Grounds by Katee Robert

The Hunting Grounds is book two in the Hidden Sins series by Katee Roberts but fret not it can be read as a standalone. I have read several Katee Roberts books and I have to say I like this one more than any of the other I have read. I really enjoyed the plot, I loved the setting, and the characters were well written. I loved the whodunit it surprised me, the fact that I couldn’t make a guess impressed me. I love the mountains and love it when books have the majority of their setting in the forest, Katee’s active setting was great I could picture what they saw and what they experienced. 

Maggie Gaines believes she failed so spectacularly at being an FBI agent that she left and isolated herself in a job that requires the minimum amount of social interaction, she became a Forest Ranger up in the Glazier National Park. She figured she was as far away from murder as she could get until it found her. Vic Sutherland was Maggie’s partner and the senior agent in charge he doesn’t blame Maggie for her emotional breakdown that lead to her quitting, it was a tough case even for him. It’s been eight years since she left and he hasn’t stopped thinking about her and now he’s not prepared to see how much she has changed since she last saw her, and that one kiss they shared. 

Maggie was surprised that it was Vic that came instead of one of the local agents, he is part of the BAU and the dead body discovered in her park matches the MO of two other bodies he’s found in other National Parks, they were shot with arrows and gutted like game. Soon after he arrives another body is found, one who was part of a group that has now gone missing. Maggie and Vic work together in the park while Vic partner tracks down leads in town but soon Maggie and Vic are targets from this hunter. Meanwhile Vic and Maggie realize the attraction they both felt years ago is still there only now there is nothing in the way of them forming a relationship, they want to take it slow but the sexual chemistry between them is too strong to slow them down. They just have to take down this hunter before the hunter takes one of them down first.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this one. Maggie had a lot to overcome personally and Vic was there to help here gain her self-confidence back and find where she needed to be. Maggie isn’t one of those stupid heroines who go off by herself, well she does but she’s smart about it she texts and tells Vic what’s happening and she’s doing it was just crap luck that he didn’t see them sooner. She is still a little annoying at times but that’s just who she is, mixed with the issues she has to work through. I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series.

ARC Review: Fractured Love by Ella James

I have really enjoyed everything I have read from Ella James, but I was beyond excited for Fractured Love. Not only was this one a second chance romance, but it sounded like it was angsty and emotional and those are some of my guilty pleasures! This book was so good and I couldn't put it down. I loved it and I think readers will too! 

Evie was 16 years old when Landon Jones came to live with her family. They immediately realized that there was a connection between them, and while they tried to fight it, it was more than either of them were capable of. But when her parents found out, they threw Landon out of the house. Now 10 years later, they haven't seen or heard from one another since. But with Evie about to become a surgeon just like her parents, she is shocked to see that one of her new coworkers is none other than Landon, only now he is Dr. Jones. 

These two were impossible not to like and I felt connected to them right from the start. My heart when out to Landon and all that he had been through. But it was that much worse after he lost Evie. I was heartbroken for these two and I couldn't believe that they had been forced to face such heartache at such a young age. These two had such an intense and special relationship, and their connection was so genuine and rare. I just felt so much for both of them and they felt so real to me. Their chemistry was off the charts hot, but it was so much more than that, these two were made for one another. 

Overall, this book was so good and I can't stop thinking about it. I loved the characters and the story, even when it broke my heart. Not only did it have steam, but it was emotional and gave me all the feels. Ella James is an author that I have come to love and she is definitely an auto-buy for me at this point. Fractured Love just might be my favorite from her to date though, and I can't recommend it enough.

ARC Review: Baller Made by Rie Warren

Baller Made is the conclusion to the three part Carolina Crush football romance series. This is the story of Calder and Reggie and it's got some really interesting twist as did all of the books in this series. Calder is on his second chance in the NFL. He blew his first chance by getting caught up in drugs because he could not deal with the death of his brother. Since then Calder has really been punishing himself for so many things. One of the long list of things he has beat himself up over is Reggie.

Reggie is a Vegas showgirl and Calder's widowed sister in law. I wasn't sure how I would feel about Reggie and Calder hooking up but the author does a lot of things to make it more palatable. The most important thing is that Calder was in love with Reggie before his brother. Calder just didn't step up in time to do anything about it. The other thing is that Reggie and Calder's brother's marriage was falling apart completely independent of anything happening with Calder and Reggie. Calder and Reggie's relationship might make you a little uncomfortable but this is fiction so try to use your imagination. Just so you know there is absolutely no cheating in this book. Reggie did not hook up with Calder or even see him in that way until after his brother was totally out of the picture.

Reggie is a really great character. She is just what Calder needs to move forward in every way. Calder needs to accept his feelings for Reggie, reunite with his family and forgive himself. Reggie gives him exactly what he needs to do all of that. Reggie understands how Calder is torn up about his choice. She admits that she doesn't have all the answers but she is brave and she doesn't want to waste her life. Reggie's bravery helps Calder to stop being afraid to do what he really wants to do which is love Reggie.

If you've read any Rie Warren book you know that the books are like chili pepper levels HAWT. This book is no exception. Reggie and Calder burn up the pages. Even when Calder is trying to deny what he wants with Reggie, there is still some scorching hot contact between them. You get to see all the other members of the Carolina Crush from the series that you probably loved wrap up their stories in this book. In fact, the epilogue is split between the three couples that make up the Carolina Crush series. If you didn't read the other books and you start here, there will be spoilers and you will feel like you missed something.  Baller Made is my favorite book of the whole series but the series is all entertainment.

ARC Review: Elusive by L.A. Fiore

I am a huge fan of L.A. Fiore's after reading a few of her books. She is still pretty new to me, but with each new book I read from her I fall more in love with her writing style. I was so excited to see that she was writing a pirate love story, and this book was everything I had been hoping for from her.

Noah and Willow came from very different backgrounds, but from the moment they met there was a spark between them. Willow's family was in the treasure hunting business and she always blamed it for the reason her parents were around. But when she stumbled upon a journal with the promise of a shipwreck and lost treasure, the romantic in her knew she had to find it to get answers to what happened to the couple from the journal. Noah's life was about surviving, and that led to an unexpected life as a pirate. But when the journal brought them together, both of them knew that what they had could only be temporary as their goals were very different. Though neither of them planned on falling in love, they find themselves unable to fight the feelings between them and soon they both begin to wonder if a future together might be possible.

I loved these two together. I thought that they were sexy and the chemistry was there right from the start. It was easy to see the attraction between them and I couldn't get enough of how hot they were. But I loved that they both connected while still being so different from one another. Though they came from completely different upbringings, they both sought treasure and a family that loved them. Willow was smart and a true romantic at heart, I loved that she was passionate and that her motives were truly to tell the story that she had fell in love with. While Noah's motives might not have been on the up and up, he cared for Willow and it was easy to see that he would do anything for her. 

Overall, this was such a great story. I was captivated from the start and there were twists and turns here that I didn't expect. L.A. Fiore's writing is fantastic and I felt like I was right there with the characters living their hunt for treasure right along with them. This world that she has created is beautiful and yet dangerous and edgy, keeping the reader on the edge of their seat wondering what will happen next. I loved the characters here and I can't wait to get to know these sexy pirates better. While they had some bad to them and lived up to the word pirate, they were impossible not to root for and I am anxious for Snake's book next. If you are looking for something different and unique with some sexy alphas and unexpected turns, this is definitely one you will want to check out. My one minor criticism and the only reason this book wasn't a five star read for me was that I felt a bit detached at times from Noah, and I wish that we had been able to get a bit more of him and his POV. I felt like he kind of fell to the background a bit with Willow and the hunt for treasure sometimes taking over. The story was still great, but I wanted more of Noah and the connection between him and Willow.
