Blog Tour: Ruthless Rival by LJ Shen is available now. (5/5/2022)

“This addictive enemies-to-lovers romance…captures both characters’ intense emotions and undeniable chemistry. It’s sure to have readers hooked.” —Publishers Weekly

Ruthless Rival, an all-new addictive and emotional romance from Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen is now live!

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author L.J. Shen comes an enemies-to-lovers romance about the fine line between seeking revenge and finding love.

When she was young, Arya Roth became best friends with her housekeeper’s son. Soon, friendship turned to young love, and when Arya dared him to kiss her, a chain reaction of disastrous events led to the boy being sent away and out of Arya’s life.

Now, two decades later, Arya is an on-the-rise publicist with her beloved father as one of her biggest clients. So when her father is sued by a former employee, Arya sets out to prove that her father is not the monster he is accused of being. The only problem is the attorney who is determined to destroy her father’s good name. Christian Miller is charming, ambitious, and devilishly good looking, and Arya has no idea he is that same boy who kissed her all those years ago.

Past and present collide as Arya falls hard for Christian. But when she finds out who he really is and about his obsession with getting revenge on her father, can she choose love over family?

 

I am a sucker for LJ Shen books and Ruthless Rival got basically all my favorite tropes – childhood friends/rich girl & housekeep son/enemies-to-lovers/second chance romance.  Written in past and present version.  You can see the sweetest part when they were just lonely kids enjoying each other company and eventually became more.  The older version of Christian is to die for – gorgeous, successful and all alpha male 😊 Arya is also successful, beautiful, smart but still a bit gullible when it comes to her family.  I really enjoy the banters and the slow-burn but I think I was expecting a little more angst between them.  I guess since Christian was hiding his identity, I did not get the anger and resentment coming from both sides. However, the chemistry is palpable though.  Arya and Christian were definitely made for each other.  You can tell they are drawn to each other despite the fact that Christian was no longer the young Nicholai from the past.  This trope I have seen before but they storyline is pretty unique.  We have childhood romance with identify changed and some twists, fierce enemies turn passionate romance.  The story is also about family and forgiveness.  I would have loved more romance and less family drama/revenge.  Overall, it was an enjoyable read and I love the epilogue.  First standalone and a beautiful beginning to Cruel Castaways series.

Oh how much I miss the royal series!!! As soon as I heard there will be a novella I could not wait to get my hands on it. Emma Chase did not disappoint. What I did not expect was how emotional this book was. I was teary eyes the whole time but in a good way. There are sweet moments, some funny ones, and of course romance. Beautiful, sweet ending to a fantastic series. This is a fact – as soon as I finished this novella I went back to the beginning and read 3 books in a row. I highly recommend the royal series… one of my favorites from this author.

WHOA! I really LOVE this book!!! SUPER CUTE!  The minute I read the scene the hero was a triplet and the heroine was a bit confused about her situation, I was hooked.  Sometimes you start a book and you immediately have a good feeling that it will be a hit … Well, I just knew this was what I needed to get me out of my book funk.  K. Bromberg does not disappoint.  Last Resort was so funny, adorable and super sexy.  Man! The sizzling chemistry and sexual tension between Callahan and Sutton really burned up my kindle J  Callahan is sort of the non-favorite triplet of the family.  He is labeled a player and a slacker who shy away from his family business.  His brothers are accusing him of screwing off too much so they sent him to fix the already failing project in the Virgin Islands.  Basically, do the job successfully or he is out of the family business. 

Sutton just got out of a horrible relationship.  She is finally taking on a big project that she is more than capable – finally ready to shy and move up the ladder of her career.  What happened when Sutton came into a meeting to discuss said project and she is met with 3 familiar gorgeous faces – in fact one she knew very intimately from the night before J The only problem is she can’t tell which one of them was THE one and which one will be living in paradise with her for months to come.  I can’t say enough this book is so much fun and adorable.  Rarely I love both characters but I can’t find faults in neither of them.  I love the secondary characters (2 brothers and a friend) as well.  This was absolutely a 5-stars very entertaining read for me.

THE BULLY
Release Date: March 3rd
Calamity Montana #4
By Willa Nash
http://willanash.com/books/the-bully

Nellie Rivera is trading traffic for tranquility. When the quiet streets of small-town Montana beckon, she leaves Denver behind and moves to Calamity. It would be the perfect adventure if not for Cal Stark.

When her archnemesis dares to show his face one Saturday morning, declaring he is moving there too, she vows to make his life a misery. The town isn’t big enough for the both of them and besides . . .

She was here first.

Cal has been a thorn in her side since high school. He might have bullied her back then, but she’s not a modest teenager anymore and has learned a few plays of her own. If all goes to plan, she’ll run the former pro quarterback out of town within a month.

There’s only one problem. Cal has the same plan. He wants Calamity bad enough to pull out all the stops. And after one kiss, she realizes that he doesn’t play fair.

What I hate about this book? It has to end 
This is the ultimate enemies to lovers romance. Holy Moly! Does the heroine hold grudge :0
Nellie and Cal have known each other since high school. They both attended a prestige private high school where Nellie was a scholarship kid and Cal is a rich and famous star. Nellie was always an outcas, and she was bullied quite a bit by Cal. Nellie vowed to stay away from boys like Cal and never fall for his antics. One innocent kiss by the pool changed their life forever. Cal became a star in all Nellie’s journal, and not in a good way :0
Years later, Nellie moved to small town Montana to start a new life with one of their mutual friend’s company. What happen when said mutual friend also invited Cal to move there too since Cal is retiring from pro football?
I like that the heroine is feisty and strong will. The hero is portrayed as a heartless bad boy extraordinaire but Cal is any but … if anything Cal is misunderstood, mainly because he chose the outer image he wants people to see. These two is hellbent on hating each other but physical attraction is a bitch. They can’t stay away from each other even if they tried. Their relationship is all angsts, push and pull, love and hate … so what we have is all heat and explosive chemistry. I like the idea of the diary which give us a glimpse of their past. The HAE ending is long time coming but so worth it. There is a bonus epilogue you don’t want to miss either. Make sure you download it after you are done with the book – super cute. This small town, enemy-to-lover is a wonderful addition to Calamity Montana series and just might be my favorite. Lovely read!!!

The Difference between Somehow and Someway by Aly Martinez is available now! (3/2/2022)

“Mind blowing!”—Goodreads

The Difference Between Somehow and Someway, the jaw-dropping, sexy and intense second book in The Difference Trilogy from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez is now live!

 

I can’t begin to tell you how much I need this book right now after reading the first 😭🥴♥️

OMG 😱 AM dropped another huge bomb. Truly I didn’t expect the what and the Who. I know something was off but I never expected the story went in that direction. I don’t know how Remi and Bowen survive this much less come out the other side ever the same. Remi can’t seem to catch a break and I’m so heartbroken for Bowen and their entire families. I’m still reeling from the ending of this book. I have to say AM wrote incredible story … this plot is nothing expected nor been read before. I am ready for the finale and I hope to God it has a HAE for everyone involved. I don’t think my heart can take it otherwise 🙁♥️

READ THIS trilogy!!! Can’t wait for book 3

 

The world gave me everything.

After surviving a plane crash, I was lucky to be alive. It was a harsh truth, but one that changed my perspective on how fragile life could be.

So when a fellow survivor caught my eye, I owed it to myself to take a chance and follow my heart.

Bowen Michaels was guarded and broody, but I saw through his well-formed armor. Much like me, he was broken and lost, but together we found our way through the darkness.

For a brief moment, wrapped in his arms, it felt like maybe he was right about fate and we’d been destined to find each other all along.

But when buried secrets of the past erupt, igniting us both, it was hard to believe we’d been fated for anything other than failure.

The world gave me everything.
And then it took it all away.

Excerpt from The Difference between Somebody and Someone
Book 1

“Sorry, is my mood killing your buzz?” I asked.
Her blue eyes sparkled in the glow of the airplane reading light. “It really is.”
I shook my head and went back to mindlessly flipping the pages of a magazine I’d bought at the terminal back in Colorado. I’d picked it up with hopes it would be a distraction from the cyclone raging within me on our way back to Atlanta. The minute she ordered that drink, I’d known it was a lost cause.
Her hand came across the armrest and landed on my thigh. “Bowen, stop. It’s not a big deal.”
It was the truth. Compared to everything we’d been through, our house could have been swallowed by a sinkhole and it wouldn’t have been considered a big deal.
Honest to God, I was lucky to still have her at all. It had only been nine months since we’d met, but we’d lived a thousand lives in that time. Unfortunately, that also meant we’d died almost as many deaths.
Terrifying, tortuous, agony-filled deaths.
We’d also found love though—immeasurable amounts of it.
I stared down at her engagement ring. I’d cashed out a huge chunk of my savings account and still had to open a line of credit with the jewelry store to buy the three-karat princess-cut ring. The payment was roughly the same as I paid for my truck each month, but the tears in her eyes as she’d sat in her hospital bed, clutching it to her chest the day I proposed, made it all worth it.
She was worth it. Every day, every tear, every worry-filled minute shaved off my life.
I’d do it all again.
If only I weren’t so helpless to save her. I loved that woman. Whole heart. Whole soul. Bend me, break me, crack me open and she would have been there. No matter how bad it got, she was always a part of me.
I wasn’t sure anymore if she could say the same.
“Bowen,” she whispered, just as she’d done so many times before. It was a plea. One she knew I’d answer no matter the situation. No matter how mad I got. No matter how much I feared losing her again.
My gaze instinctively lifted to hers.
She smiled and the sight caused an ache in my chest. It was a lie.
God, I missed her smile.
“Baby, I’m okay.” She tilted her head to her drink. “I hate flying. That’s all this is.”
That was a lie too.
My shoulders fell and a loud breath tore from my burning lungs, but I let myself pretend, my mind going back to a time when it could have been the truth.
I thought of the nights we’d shared multiple bottles of wine and made love, laughing and moaning under the covers until the sun crept across the horizon. She’d rested peacefully in my arms. No nightmares. No crying in her sleep. No insomnia. Just even breaths, her head on my shoulder, and her body wound around mine so tightly it was like a second skin.
But that was the past.
The unreachable, insurmountable past.
The plane jerked, forcing me back to the present.
“Shit.” She moved her hand off my thigh to grasp her drink as it sloshed all over her. “Crap, crap, crap,” she chanted, using a cocktail napkin to dry the dark-red pool of tomato juice on her white pants.
For a moment, I sat there and watched her struggle. It wasn’t the most chivalrous thing to do, but I was all out of grand gestures.
She unbuckled her seat belt and lurched to her feet, her phone along with a handful of ice cubes from her lap falling to the floor. “Damn, this is going to leave a huge stain.”
The plane jerked again and she stumbled forward, crashing into the seat in front of her before I could catch her arm.
“Dammit, sit down before you get hurt.”
Ignoring me, she bent over to fish her phone from under the seat. “Hit the button for the flight attendant. I need some club soda and a lemon. STAT.”
“No, what you need is to sit down.”
I gave her arm a tug and dragged her down to the seat. Using the tip of my boot, I swept her phone toward her. Aforementioned lack of chivalry aside, I was no contortionist; leaning over to pick it up was out of the question.
She folded her upper body over my lap and blindly patted around the floor. I fought the urge to run my fingers through the back of her hair. In the beginning, it would have been a no-brainer. I’d have curled forward and suggestively whispered in her ear, “Since you’re already down there…”
She would have grinned up at me, her whole face filled with mischief as she traced a finger over my zipper, ignoring anyone who dared to watch her as she replied, “You mean down here?”
I’d have grabbed her hand and made her stop even though I was the one who had started it. She had no filter. She always took it one step too far. I’d loved that about her when we’d first met. It was fresh and exciting, a far cry from the stuffy women I’d dated in the past.
But now, she was in the past too.
We were in the past.

The Assignment by Penelope Ward is available!!!! (3/2/2022)

 

Title: The Assignment
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 28, 2022
BLURB

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

 

Reasons why I should not be drawn to Troy Serrano.
Number one: He’s obnoxious.
Number two: He and I were enemies over a decade ago in high school.
Number three: He’s my friend’s ex-boyfriend.
I could go on and on, really.
When my boss gives me an unwanted assignment and tells me it involves spending time with the grandson of one of our residents—the grandson turns out to be Troy. He’s now as successful as he is undeniably handsome.
Lucky me. Four hours a week of having to deal with his insufferable personality and unsolicited advice.
The only consolation is getting to stare at his annoyingly gorgeous face in between our many arguments.
Eventually, though, we slowly warm to each other and our outings become something I actually look forward to.

 

What’s happening to me?

 

Apparently, I misunderstood the assignment, because it certainly didn’t include thinking about Troy when I close my eyes at night, imagining what it would be like with him—just once. All the while hating myself for fantasizing about a guy who’s all wrong for me. A guy whose car I keyed back in the day. (Long story, but he deserved it.)
That’s all this is—a fantasy.
Well, until that one night at the bar.
The night Troy and I run into each other, and all of our pent-up frustration comes barreling out.
Still, I refuse to accept that it means anything.
There’s no way the guy I’m supposed to hate is also the one I can’t live without.

 

 

 

 

The assignment is super cute enemies-to-lovers romance. Troy and Aspyn went way back. Troy dated Aspyn’s best friend in high school and he wasn’t exactly the nice guy. A few things went down and Aspyn can’t help but hold a grudge. Years later, Aspyn ran into Troy again … this time she was assigned to baby sit Troy whenever he takes his grandfather out for a troll. You know what they say about mixing business and pleasure  This book was so much fun and heartwarming. I love the banters. The chemistry is always slow brewing until it exploded. I like that they became friends and slowly built up the trust and forgiveness of past wrongs. I adore the funny old gram and also Aspyn’s niece is super cute. I also enjoy the sense of family included in this book. Over all, the assignment was a charming and enjoyable read about forgiveness, new beginning and second chance at love.

Synopsis

 

The last time my husband gave me an orgasm was … Well, that’s never happened.

 

And from the way our marriage is crumbling under the weight of his lies, it never will.

 

Alas, after fighting like hell for a divorce, I promise myself that I’ll never waste love on anyone else.

 

I don’t even want to ‘date’ anyone else.

 

But that’s until I literally run into a man who leaves me breathless at first sight, a man who etches his way into my memory with nothing more than a single smile and a question.

 

He’s an enigma who doesn’t want to give me his first name—a man who has more secrets than answers—and from the sexy smirk on his lips, I know that I should stay far away from him.

 

I try to keep my distance, but he pursues me anyway …

 

When he offers me a job I can’t refuse, I throw caution to the wind and take a chance.

 

I should’ve thought about this a little more.

 

Little do I know, this man is about to take me on a dangerous ride that might cost me everything.

 

Book 1 in the wickedly addictive Wasted Love trilogy.

 

Read the first seven chapters here.

 

OH WOW! This book was mysterious, intriguing and I am completed hooked from the start. The plot is unique and kept me guessing all the way through. The hero has not quite revealed himself yet. He is an enigma. All we know is he is sexy and he is definitely powerful. He is not used to things not going his ways – there will consequences. This man has a way of “taking care of business” not in a pretty way. You best do what he says. Well, there is only one person who is testing his patience right now… Autumn needs to get away from a toxic relationship. She has been offered a job to work for the hero … She needs the job but the more she finds out about Mister R. the more she is getting cold feet. She is feisty and defiance. Autumn wants to get away far from this dangerous hero, but is she in too deep now? You will have to wait and find out.
This was a fantastic read. Lots of twists and turns, suspenseful plot and already sizzling with chemistry, angsts, and sexual tension. A little bit dark but not too gorgy details. Vague review … hard not spoil the story. All I’d say is hold on tight – you are in for a bumpy ride ahead. Can’t wait for more !!!

The last time my husband gave me an orgasm was … Well, that’s never happened.

 

And from the way our marriage is crumbling under the weight of his lies, it never will.
Alas, after fighting like hell for a divorce, I promise myself that I’ll never waste love on anyone else.
