SUMMARY

“Heartbreaking…inspiring, uplifting and raw…” ― RT Book Reviews, A 5-star Gold Pick

 

A broken woman . . .

 

Crystal learned long ago that love brings only pain. Feeling nothing at all is far better than being hurt again. She guards her wounded heart behind a hard exterior and carries within her a deep mistrust of men, who, in her experience, have only ever used and taken.

A man in need of help . . .

 

Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible darkness of his past, there’s an undeniable goodness in him. And even though she knows the cost, Crystal finds herself drawn to Gabriel. His quiet strength is wearing down her defenses and his gentle patience is causing her to question everything she thought she knew.

Only love can mend a shattered heart . . .

 

Crystal and Gabriel never imagined that the world, which had stolen everything from them, would bring them a deep love like this. Except fate will only take them so far, and now the choice is theirs: Harden their hearts once again or find the courage to shed their painful pasts.

Dignity by Jay Crownover Review Tour with Excerpt

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jay Crownover returns with the second title in her romantic suspense series, The Breaking Point, DIGNITY. Check out the excerpt below and grab your copy today! 

 

 

About DIGNITY:

Looks can be deceiving.

I knew that most people took one look at the ink and the impossibly big and strong body it covered and decided I was a brawler…a bruiser…a beast. However, I was hardwired to be a thinker, not a fighter.

I should have chosen to use my brain and talents to be one of the good guys, a hero, a man with dignity and worth.

I turned my back on dignity and sold my soul to the highest bidder, deciding to dance with the devil, instead.

I couldn’t figure out how to help myself, so there was zero chance I knew how to save someone else.

That someone else was Noe Lee. She was the unkempt, unruly thief who was just as smart as I was and twice as street savvy. She was annoyingly adorable beneath the dirt and grime, and she was in trouble. In way over her head, I told myself it wasn’t my job to keep her from drowning. In the Point, it was sink or swim, and I wasn’t the designated lifeguard on duty.

I shut the door in her face, but now she’s gone…vanished…disappeared without a trace. It took less than a second for me to realize that I wanted her back.

When a woman comes along that melts all the frozen, hard things you’re made of; you’ll do anything you have to, to bring her home.

What you see is not always what you get…and with a man like me, what you get is more than anyone ever bargained for.

Excerpt

Protective and possessive instincts coiled around my gut and rage felt like it was going to choke me. I was so used to being cold and numb, I didn’t know what to do with the fire that was licking at my insides.

“I saw him take her out of the trunk when they got to the docks. He moved like a cop. Not the kind who is there to actually protect and serve, but the kind who pulls you over for no reason and slaps cuffs on you to prove a point. I was locked up for a lot of years, boy genius. I know what a dirty cop looks like. He had a busted-up nose and stitches on the side of his face. Should be pretty easy for Titus to identify him.”

Titus King was Bax’s half-brother and the only law enforcement officer in the entire city any of us slightly trusted. He was one of the few men the Point hadn’t tainted. He was a good guy, trying to do right by the people in our city, and he wouldn’t hesitate to throw Goddard’s dirty cop under the bus. But I didn’t want anyone going after the Mayor. His sadistic ass was all mine.

“Do you think they made it out of the container after you hit it with the truck?” That had been my idea. Nassir was only sending in Booker and Benny to get Noe out, but I didn’t think it was enough fire power. Since he refused to let me go, even siccing Chuck on me as a babysitter until the job was done, I made Benny go over the plan with me no less than a hundred times until I came up with a better one. Knocking the container sideways with one of the big semi-trucks that littered the area would give Benny the time he needed to get Noe out and distract the outside security detail enough that Booker could do his thing. It was a risk because the people inside the container—including Noe and Benny—might have ended up injured when the thing flipped, but the odds of them making it out were much higher than if Benny tried to take on everyone on his own.

“If Benny made it out, we won’t hear from him again. That was the deal he made with Nassir. He would get your girl and then disappear, so he can go and live happily ever after with his. As for the rest of them,” he shrugged, “I guess we’ll find out soon enough. Your girl said someone had a gun, so if they were shooting at Benny, he would do whatever he could to make sure they stopped. He’s not about to catch a bullet for any of us. I know you want that asshole alive for your own reasons, but honestly, it’s better if Benny popped him.”

It was better, but it wasn’t what I wanted. A bullet between the eyes was way too easy for a guy like Goddard. People would bemoan how bad the Point had become, how Goddard had been a staunch supporter of crime prevention measures. He would die a martyr and a legend. I couldn’t stand the thought of that. I wanted who Goddard was, who he really was, out in the open. I wanted his mansion doors flung wide open and every skeleton inside the walls exposed and thrown out on the perfectly manicured lawn for the entire world to see. I hated people who hid behind the law. I hated when men in any position of power got off on using their elevated status to jerk the helpless and hopeless around. Death wasn’t the answer. Devastation was.

I closed my eyes and squeezed the cold, still hand that was clasped in mine. Failure weighed heavy on my shoulders and fury lit up my blood like popping and sizzling firecrackers.

“When do we ever end up with anything that’s better for us?” That wasn’t how the Point worked. That wasn’t how we worked.

Booker grunted and I felt him move behind me. “It happens. It doesn’t seem like better should be able to find a foothold in this place, but despite all odds, it does.”

And don’t miss the first standalone title in The Breaking Point series, HONOR! Grab your copy today!

Dignity by Jay Crownover Review

4.5 Smooches

Synopsis

Looks can be deceiving.
I knew that most people took one look at the ink and the impossibly big and strong body it covered and decided I was a brawler…a bruiser…a beast. However, I was hardwired to be a thinker, not a fighter.

Synopsis

I am a Jay Crownover lover. I’ve read and enjoyed every book she has written. I found her years ago when her second book was released and was hooked from the start. Dignity is just another great book in a series of hits from Jay.

Snowden Stark is a hero unlike any other Jay has written. Yes he’s hot and covered in tattoos but he is reserved, nerdy, and so smart it blow your mind. I honestly loved him from the start. Then there is Noe. She is tough, self sufficient, a bit bad but in a Robin Hood sort of way. Individually they were each brash and street tough but together they had a softness I very much enjoyed.

From the start I knew Dignity was something special and every word lived up to that for me. It was easy to get lost in this story and the bad boys from The Point you can help but love.

My Enemy Next Door by Nicole London and Whitney G. Cover Reveal

My Enemy Next Door

by Nicole London and Whitney G.
Publication Date: January 11, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Enemies to Lovers)
Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs
Model: Jorge Del Rio Romero

Preorder: iBooks

“You are a cocky, arrogant asshole and I sincerely wish you misery for the rest of your life…PS–You weren’t *that* damn sexy… “

Those were the last lines I wrote in Jace Kennedy’s yearbook before graduating high school.

Enemies from the moment we met, we went out of our way to avoid each other whenever we could. And in the moments that we couldn’t? Our heated arguments were strong enough to light the world on fire.

He was an all-star prick. Plain and simple.

I was a “band geek with fugly-ass braces.” (Not true at all.)

Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to leave him and our small hometown of Blue Harbor behind.

Now that it’s ten years later, I’ve graduated from Harvard Law at the top of my class, and I’m working at the firm of my dreams. I’m happier than I’ve ever been, surrounded by new loyal friends, and ready to compete for the lead lawyer position.

Until I find out that Jace Kennedy graduated from law school, too.

Until I realize that he’ll be working at the same exact firm, in the office right across from me.

And if that isn’t unfortunate enough, he’s far sexier and way more arrogant than I originally remembered. (Oh, and last night he moved in next door…)

I should’ve never agreed to this arrangement…

Thirty days ago, my boss—Mr. Wolf of Wall Street,  came to me with an offer I couldn’t refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a “very generous” severance package.

The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I’ve secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met.

I definitely didn’t need to think twice about this. I signed my name and started counting down the seconds to when I would never have to deal with his special brand of ass-holery again.I only made it to one minute…We argued the entire four-hour flight to his hometown, failed to make a convincing impression with the welcoming press, and right when I was about to knock that arrogant look off his face in real life? He purposely dropped his bath towel in front of me, distracting me with his nine-inch cock to “show me who the bigger person was” in our relationship. Then he gave me his trademark smirk once again and asked if I wanted to consummate our marriage.

Tragically, this is only day one.
We still have 29 more days to go…

Hold Tight by Alexa Riley Review

Alexa Riley - Hold Tight cover image

4.5 SMOOCHES!

a5 a4 a3 a2a6

SYNOPSIS:

New York Times and #1 ebook bestselling author Alexa Riley returns with Hold Tight, the next novella in the For You series

A hotshot consultant hired to streamline Osbourne Corp. meets his match in Pandora Justice—the more she plays hard to get, the more he wants her.

They say that like recognizes like, and the day I looked into her deep blues, I met my other half.

Pandora Justice took over as head of security at Osbourne Corp. after her father’s retirement. Eighty-hour workweeks are normal; being brushed up against by hot consultants with ridiculous names is not. And she doesn’t like it. Not even one bit.

It’s amazing how easily she can lie to herself.

I had to have her. Plain and simple.

The first time Pandora sees Royce in the ring—all tattoos and sinew, covered in sweat—he looks at her like he’s just won more than the fight. Like he won her.

I won’t play games with her. I’ll wait, and it will kill me, but I’ll do it for her.

Royce’s cocky grin with deep dimples makes Pandora melt. Once she wanted to smack that look off his face—now all she wants to do is kiss it. For the rest of her life.

The thought of spending the rest of my life with Pandora warms the place in my chest I didn’t think was alive. I’ve put my claim on her—she’s the one, and I’m done. It’s that simple.

REVIEW:

For me, curling up with one of Alexa Riley’s steamy, instalove novellas is one of the ways I get away from it all. It’s pure escapism reading, and I’ll be honest, I can use that once in a while. Over-the-top obsessed all alpha male doing whatever it takes—and I do mean whatever—to get the (virgin) girl of his dreams? Yes please! This talented author duo was made to write this genre. I suppose my inner feminist should be screaming in protest at this repeated choice of reading material, but she’s silent. It’s a fantasy, and it’s totally okay to lose yourself in the heat of the moment with a bit of fictional fun.

Romantic, sweet and seriously hot, Hold Tight featured a strong heroine and an even stronger hero. I loved Pandora and Royce together. I loved how she didn’t just capitulate to him and gave him a run for his money—albeit a short run. This was a quick ready, full of sexy tension and lots of fight. I devoured it, and I enjoyed every single minute of it. Hold Tight by Alexa Riley gets 4.5 smooches from me!

Unloved by Katy Regnery Review

35700589

5 Smooches!

a5 a4 a2 a1a1

Synopsis

My name is Cassidy Porter…

My father, Paul Isaac Porter, was executed twenty years ago for the brutal murder of twelve innocent girls.

Though I was only eight-years-old at the time, I am aware – every day of my life – that I am his child, his only son.

To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity.

I promised myself, and my mother, not to infect innocent lives with the darkness that swirls within me, waiting to make itself known.

It’s a promise I would have kept…if Brynn Cadogan hadn’t stumbled into my life.

Now I exist between heaven and hell: falling for a woman who wants to love me, while all along reminding myself that I must remain…

Unloved.

**NOTE: This book is intended for readers 18+**

REVIEW

Wow, just freaking wow.  I have read a lot of Katy Regnery books and this was completely different in a lot of ways.  They style of writing was certainly different as the writer wrote this in first person present tense, when usually her books are in third person past tense.  But that wasn’t just it.  This story.  It  was gritty and dark and raw and somehow so sweet and beautiful.  It ran me through so many feelings I felt like I had emotional whiplash and I just loved it.

I admit that when the book started I was like I don’t know if I like where this going.  I don’t know if I want to read this.  Both the heroine and the hero had such tragic awful pasts and it all seemed so hopeless to me, but isn’t that what a good writer does in romances?  They give you hope when you think theres none left.  They give you love when all seems lost.  And this book did that for me and then some.

I have to say that I really hope that the author will write more books in this style of writing as I just adored it.  Unloved still had the beautiful writing that I have grown to love from Katy Regnery but it felt more person and I connected more with this story.  I think sometimes romance in first person does that.  Five stars for these beautiful broken characters their epic story.

Excerpt
I am not a
male escort.
Okay, technically
I am a male escort in the sense that I take money from women to go out with
them and sometimes have sex with them. But it didn’t start out that way. I own
my own business, for Pete’s sake. It’s not turning a huge profit yet, but it’s
mine and I don’t have to answer to anyone. Now I have a madam and a Little
Black Book. Except I couldn’t find a real little black book, so my escort
contacts are scrawled across the pages of the October 2016 Men’s Health that I
hide in a kitchen drawer. My whoring schedule is written on a Chinese takeout
menu.
Life used
to be simple. I barely remember that life now. The past several months are a
blur of lies, and sex, and more lies, and a lot more sex, and yarmulkes. Now
I’m standing at my door with some eager beaver Miami detective flashing his
badge in my face and wanting to know why they found my contact info in a
madam’s office during a prostitution bust. I don’t have an answer that won’t
land me in jail. I missed the hooker orientation where they tell you to have
prepared statements for events like this.
How did it
start? How did I go from a guy who waters plants for living to a part-time
escort? I would like to say it started with a woman, but it didn’t. It’s kind
of a funny story. I took money to bang chicks for my dad. It’s only a little
less creepy than it sounds. I wonder if this cop will get a laugh out of it.
Author Bio
When
Katherine Stevens isn’t writing, she can usually be found opening juice boxes
and looking for lost shoes. Her kids keep her quite busy and always zig-zagging
across the line of sanity. She is a lifelong Texan with a terrible sense of
direction and even worse memory. She thinks life is entirely too hard if you
don’t laugh your way through it.
As a child, she dreamed of being the most sarcastic astronaut in history, but
her poor math skills and aversion to dehydrated food kept her out of the space
program. Now she writes to pass the time until NASA lowers their standards.
Your move, NASA.

Synopsis

Ben Wright isn’t an escort.

Except when he is.

All he wants is to make some extra money to pay off his dad’s medical bills. He never intended to be tied to beds while making the Benjamins.

Miryam Wexler never intended to be dumped by her fiancé before their wedding.

But she was.

Now all she wants is to put her life back together and not tell her grandmother about her humiliation.

He needs money and she needs a stand-in fiancé. They can help each other, if they don’t kill each other first. Two people with double lives equals four times the chaos and four times the comedy.

Review

Accidental Man Whore is the second rom com I have read by Katherine Stevens and I still find her to mix wit and heat in a way that kept me wanting to turn the pages. Miryam and Ben’s story is fun and unique, a twist on the man whore romance genre. I found Ben to be completely lovable and endearing. His reasoning for why he takes money to be a stand in fiancé is sweet and kind.

Overall, this was a fast and funny read. The only thing I can say that would have improved the story for me would be to have the couple get together or at least properly meet earlier on. While many reader probably loved seeing how he got into the escort profession in detail and the downfall of her relationship I personally didn’t need as much as we got. It didn’t drag or anything, this is just a personal preference.

Bourbon Sins by Meghan Quinn Review

Meghan Quinn - Bourbon Sins cover image

5 SMOOCHES!

 a5 a4 a3 a2 a1

SYNOPSIS:

On the streets of New Orleans, sins are committed every night.

My name is Jett Colby and I save tarnished souls.

In the downtown, under the glittery lights of Bourbon Street, I found her in cheap lingerie, flaunting her body for callous men and money.

From the lace of her cheap lingerie, to her garter belt, I knew she had to be saved.
She had to be mine.

Broke and destitute with no way of out, she had no choice but to come to me and into my club.

She had no other choice but to become a Jett Girl.

But see, that’s the thing about this city; you might think that under the dazzling lights and illusion of salvation, she’s the one that needed saving.

When the glitter fades and the dirt is washed away, the one worth saving just might be me.

REVIEW:

Meghan Quinn is one of my go-to authors when I need some humor with my heat. I’m telling you, she has that nailed and always delivers a hot and hilarious story without missing a beat. I’ve read many of her books, laughing myself silly while simultaneously fanning myself—no easy feat, mind you, while also holding a Kindle. Some of the stuff she comes up with is so ridiculously absurd, and her verbal slapstick is my kryptonite. To this day, I cannot see or hear the word flaps without thinking of Meghan Quinn and her infamous character, Bellini. When an author can do that to me, when their words, whether they be emotionally meaningful or comically amusing, stay with me long after I’ve finished the book, I know I’ve struck gold.

See, here’s the thing, though, Quinn is by no means a one-dimensional author. Sure, her sense of humor is front and center, but Quinn is also quite stealthy in the way she manages to weave powerful emotions into her stories. Every single time – every.single.time. – she manages to surprise me with a sucker punch to the feels. I’ve read enough of her work to know that I’m not going to get a simple romantic comedy when I pick up one of her books. Oh no, there is going to be strong emotion and a sweet romance intertwined with all that wit and heat, and it’s definitely not going to be an afterthought, it’ll be an integral part of the story. I know this about her work, and yet the depth of feelings I experience when I read her work still never fails to amaze me. I don’t know why this is or how she manages to pull it off, I’m just grateful for that consistent reading experience.

Bourbon Sins is the first book in her re-titled, re-covered, re-edited and re-released Bourbon series, formerly known as the Jett Girl series. The Jett Girl series is some of Quinn’s earlier work and a series of hers I hadn’t yet read. I was offered the opportunity the read advance copies, and as soon as the books went live, I was click, click, clicking away. Bourbon Sins begins the complex story of Jett Colby, a wealthy and powerful New Orleans gentleman’s club owner, and Goldie, or Lo as he calls her, a down-on-her-luck cocktail waitress in one of the seediest strip clubs in the city. Bourbon Sins sets up Jett and Goldie’s three-book trilogy and lays the foundation for Jett’s righthand man, Kace’s, story. This story made my heart race with excitement and anticipation. I think it is by far the sexiest story I’ve read from Quinn to date, and that’s really saying something. I honestly have no idea where this will go, and I cannot wait to start the next book.

A richly developed, provocative, sultry tale meticulously layered with intrigue, sex, emotion and humor, Bourbon Sins sparked my appetite and left me craving the next book. I am positively captivated! Five smooches from me for Meghan Quinn’s Bourbon Sins!
