RELEASE DAY BLITZ: Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland



Synopsis:

Dear Bridget,
I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. 
So, here goes.
We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.
But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways. 
I want you.
The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke. 
So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime. 
No questions asked. 
Think about it. 
Or don’t. 
Whatever you choose.
It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway. 
--Simon

REVIEW: Laid by Brill Harper


Synopsis:

Conner 
I’m in over my head with these kids, but I’m all the family they have left after my sister and her husband were killed. I’m a bricklayer, what do I know about twin baby girls? Nothing. Thank God for the sweet girl-next-door. 
But she’s a blessing and a curse. 
I’ve practically moved the poor girl in to help me care for these babies, but playing house is stirring up all kinds of feelings that should never see the light of day. I know she’s got a crush on me, but what I want to do to her body would crush her innocence forever. 
She’s too sweet, too innocent, and way too young for a perv like me. 

Cassidy 
Mr. Webster is trying so hard to do the right thing and take care of everyone. But who takes care of him? I know under normal circumstances I would hardly even register on his radar, but lately, when he looks at me, I feel like there’s more between us than there should be. Maybe more than he wants. 
He works so hard. Provides for his nieces. Makes sure I’m a happy babysitter. But he’s so tense. So unhappy. 
I want to give him something. 
Something he wants. Something he needs. Something no man has ever had before. 
Me. 

Author's Confession: Writing this series is like eating candy for dinner. I'm like...sorry, not sorry. Conner is the book boyfriend you want in your life. I promise. And if you ever had a crush on the DILF while babysitting, this book is for you.

MY REVIEW

5 out of 5 stars

Laid was another fun and sexy novella from this author and I absolutely loved it mostly because it included so many of my favorite tropes. Seriously, the whole single dad falling for the young babysitter really worked for me. Like really, really worked for me. On top of that, the story was just really good. The overall plot was a bit far-fetched, but it was more developed than the previous books in this series, so it was particularly satisfying. But the best part of this book was how Conner and Cassidy were together. Their relationship was really crazy hot, but it was also quite sweet and that combination made these two my favorite couple in this series so far! I loved it so much and I absolutely recommend this book!

EXCERPT

Every time I considered leaving my room, I would grab the framed picture of Ben and stare at it.  The urge to go to Simon was so strong; I basically hadn’t put down the framed photo of my deceased husband in an hour.  I was lying in my bed, holding a picture of a dead man while fantasizing about one who was very much alive and in the other room.  With the door cracked open waiting for me.  There was one part of Simon’s note that I just kept reading over and over.

I want to make you come. Hard. I want you to get lost in me and I want to hear you say my name over and over while we fuck.

While we fuck.

While we fuck.

I was pretty sure that Ben had never used the word fuck like that before.  Did we even fuck?  We made love, sure.  Our sex life was normal—at least, I think it was normal.  Don’t get me wrong, the passion wasn’t the same as when we first got together.  But after ten years, both of us working full time and raising a child, it was normal to have some of the desire dwindle, wasn’t it?  

While we fuck.

I looked at the picture of my husband and sighed.  We didn’t fuck.  Not even in the beginning.   And I felt guilty for that now.  Maybe we should have been fucking.  I certainly didn’t do anything to entice him to want me the last few years.  Was it my fault our sex life had gotten boring?  I rested the picture of Ben over my heart and laid my hand over it.  I could feel my heart beating out of control beneath my fingers.  

Shutting my eyes, I tried to force thoughts of Simon from my mind.  But it was no use.  Visions of his hard, sculpted body hovering over me had infiltrated my brain.  So, here I was, a thirty-three-year-old, single mother lying in my bed all alone with a picture of my dead husband held to my heart while I visualized fucking another man.

Fucking.

Not making love.

I needed my head examined.  

After two hours and no sleep in sight, I decided the only way I was going to be able to get any rest was if I got everything I was feeling off of my chest.  Flicking on the light, I carefully set the framed photo of my beloved Ben on my nightstand and then opened the drawer and dug out a pen and piece of pretty stationery.  I would write down my thoughts to clear my mind.  I had no intention of actually giving the letter to Simon, so there was no reason to filter anything I said.

Dear Simon…

★★★★

We hope you enjoyed this preview!

BLOG TOUR: Disorderly Conduct by Tessa Bailey



Synopsis:

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone…

Police academy cadet Charlie Burns can’t believe his luck when the gorgeous blonde he meets in a bar murmurs those magic words: “Nothing serious, ’kay?” Mind-blowing, no-strings sex with Ever Carmichael—it’s the holy grail of hookups for a guy who’s too busy following in his law enforcement family’s footsteps to think about getting serious. Charlie’s all about casual…that is, until Ever calls it quits and his world tilts on its axis.

Ever knows that when you control the relationship game, you can’t get played. But for the first time, she wants more than short-term satisfaction. Step one: end her fling with commitment-phobic Charlie. Step two: sacrifice herself to the ruthless NYC dating scene. Yet everywhere she turns, there’s Charlie, being his ridiculously charming self. No online match or blind date compares to the criminally hot cop-in-training, but they’re over. Aren’t they?

If love is a four-letter-word, why does the idea of Ever seeing someone else tie Charlie up in knots?  Now he’s desperate to win her back…and a little date sabotage never hurt anyone, right?

About the Author:

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention. She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

MY REVIEW

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

Disorderly Conduct, the first book in Tessa Bailey's Academy series was another great contemporary romance by this author which is really no surprise. I couldn't get enough of these characters. I'm not going to lie, Ever and Charlie were a little fucked up with the way they viewed relationships, but it all made for an entertaining romance and made it all the more satisfying when they fell for each other in the end. But as much as I enjoyed all the shenanigans in this book, I feel like the reasons behind why these two viewed relationships in the way they did was kind of weak. And the whole Mistress Manifesto thing was really kind of ridiculous and I was never really able to wrap my head around it. Other than that this book was wonderful. The love story in this book was sweet and sexy and so much fun and all in all this book was a win for me and I really recommend it!

REVIEW: Wrecked by Brill Harper


Synopsis:

I knew the moment I saw her bent over the hood of her car on the side of the road that Layna was trouble. 

It looked like the opening scene from a porno—a shapely blonde in a short skirt waiting for me to tow her sports car out of a ditch and dirty up that sweet, pure body with my filthy mechanic hands. I could hear the bow-chicka-bow-wow soundtrack in my head. 

Then she opened her sassy mouth and everything about my reclusive, sensible, quiet life changed because Layna is not reclusive, sensible, or quiet. 

Unfortunately, she’s also mine. 

We both knew it right away, whether we wanted it or not. But she’s got her demons, and I’ve got my work cut out for me. 

She thinks I’m big, surly, and overprotective. She has no idea. Whatever she’s running from, I’m going to fix. Whatever she needs, I’m going to give her. And the sooner she figures out what she needs is me, the better off we’ll both be. 

Author’s confession: Like all my Blue Collar Bad Boys, this hero is outrageous, excessive, overblown (heh), and overdone. Just the way we like them. He’s dirty; she’s sweet. He’s from the wrong side of the tracks. She’s a poor little rich girl. It’s trope heaven up in here. Also, not to spoil anything but there might be neckties and bedposts happening. What would you do if the dude on this cover was bound and determined to let you do whatever you wanted to his body?

MY REVIEW

5 out of 5 stars

Wrecked, the fourth Blue Collar Bad Boys book, was another quick, hot, and dirty book by Brill Harper. It was everything I've come to expect from these over the top and outrageous books and I loved it! Rogan and Layna's story was so much fun to read. I loved that these two were secluded in his small home for the majority of the story. The close quarters added to how hot I found their relationship. The part of the plot focused on Layna trying to get away from her abusive stepfather was okay, but this was the first time I kind of wanted to know more about something not surrounding the intense and sexy relationships between the main characters in these books. But other than that I absolutely loved this book. As I stated at the beginning of my review Wrecked was a fun, quick, hot, and dirty book. I loved it!!! And like with the other Blue Collar Bad Boys books I highly recommend this book.

REVIEW: Reunion by London Hale


Synopsis:

We're heading back to Temperance Falls for a second chance at love...

She’s ready to move on 
High school reunions are supposed to be fun. Unfortunately, mine starts with a storm that traps me in a house with my newly ex-boyfriend...and his hot-as-sin stepbrother. Luke kept in touch with me over the years, but not like this. Not with his hands, his fingers...his mouth. If my ex finds out, it’s more than just a friendship on the line. I could destroy a family. 

He’s done holding back
Hannah’s been off-limits for twelve long years, ever since my stepbrother swooped in and claimed her before I could. As if coveting from afar isn’t bad enough, now I have to suffer through our ten-year reunion watching them together. But things aren’t as perfect in paradise as it would seem. One overheard conversation between them, and I’m ready to throw caution to the wind. If my stepbrother can’t make her scream, I’m more than happy to get the job done.

London Hale's books can be read in any order or as standalones. Looking for something quick, filthy, and taboo with a guaranteed HEA and no cheating? The couples of Temperance Falls deliver.

MY REVIEW

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

So far, Reunion is definitely my favorite of the books set in the Temperance Fall world. This book was just so satisfying. The whole situation with Luke wanting Hannah for over a decade and finally getting the chance to show her that he is the man she belongs with really was perfect. And of course everything that happened between Luke and Hannah was off the charts hot as well as really sweet given their history as friends. I absolutely could not get enough of this book to the point that I couldn't help but read it twice. This book was just that good. I'm telling y'all Reunion was a flawless erotic novella and has once again proven that the duo that makes up London Hale can do no wrong with these stories.

REVIEW: When the Scoundrel Sins by Anna Harrington


Synopsis:

Annabelle Green needs a husband-and quickly. To inherit the only home she's ever known, she must be married by her twenty-fifth birthday. But finding a suitor has been next to impossible after a reckless rogue named Quinton Carlisle seduced her into a scandalous midnight tryst. Her reputation in ruins, Belle now needs a rather large favor. And she knows just who to turn to . . . 

Quinn can hardly believe that the shy bookish girl he teased as a child has grown into such a brazen beauty. The very idea of marrying Belle to right the wrongs of his past is downright shocking . . . and deliciously tempting. Too bad marriage, convenient or otherwise, is the last thing Quinn wants. He'll help Belle find a husband and be on his way. But if he can't control his attraction to the bride-to-be, this marriage could go up in flames-of wicked desire.

MY REVIEW

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

I read an ARC of this book back in June but I loved it so much that I still haven't been able to get it out of my mind. When the author first introduced the brothers in How I Married a Marquess I knew that Quinton was going to end up being my favorite of the Carlisle brothers and I wasn't wrong. His character was absolutely fantastic. He was everything I love in a hero of a historical romance novel and more. Pairing him with Annabelle was perfect. There was a lot of back and forth between these two making for a an entertaining read especially given Quinn's role in Belle's past misfortunes. But moving on from that I really loved the way that these two's relationship developed throughout the book from Belle's desperation to get married to Quinn's decision to help her to the meddling of others. Everything combined with their sweet interactions made for a swoon-worthy romance that I couldn't enough of. Overall, this novel was another perfect romance by the amazing Anna Harrington and I can't wait for the next book from the author!

I'm going on a blogging hiatus...

So I have been feeling crazy overwhelmed lately. If you follow me on social media, you probably would have read that I recently moved from New York to Pennsylvania and between that move and all the extra hours I have been putting in at my day job there are just not enough hours in a day, which means that I have found myself in a blogging slump. It's gotten so bad that I was starting to not enjoy running this blog and was seriously considering abandoning it. But after giving it a lot of thought, I've decided that I don't really want to abandon this platform because I really do love talking about books and sharing my reviews, but for my own sanity I have decided that I will be taking a two week hiatus from blogging starting immediately and ending August 13th. I will be spending those much needed two weeks to regroup and and get back into the right mindset where I actually enjoy blogging again. In the meantime if you want to keep up with me I will still be popping by on my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Goodreads to talk about books every once in a while, so don't hesitate to come say hi. Other than that, I'll be back and ready to go on Monday, August 14th with my review of Irresistible You by Kate Meader!
