REVIEW: Ruthless King

REVIEW: Ruthless King

Read a review of Ruthless King by Meghan March.

Keira’s recently deceased husband didn’t just cheat on her, he siphoned money from the distillery, and he signed a half a million dollar promissory note to the kingpin of New Orleans’s underworld. Now that he’s gone, Keira is left with a struggling business and a debt to the notorious Lachlan Mount.

If Fifty Shades of Grey made you blush, this is not the book for you. This book is for people who don’t mind stories that are gritty, angsty, or dark and twisty. This isn’t your grandma’s romance. This is a new and darker side to Meghan March!

Read an excerpt from Hard Wood by Lauren Blakey. 

Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.
That's why I'm quite a catch-- good, hard, loaded, and wait for it...I'm ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with lives clear across the country. Neither of us wants to get lost in those woods. All I have to do is resist her for the week she's in town.
I try. I swear I try. But yeah, that doesn't work out.

REVIEW: Slip of the Tongue

REVIEW: Slip of the Tongue

Read a review of Slip of the Tongue by Jessica Hawkins. 

Nate and Sadie have enjoyed five years of marital bliss, but now there is something between them. Sadie doesn’t know what it is and Nate isn’t ready to talk about it. But, the distance between them is growing. When Finn moves in across the hall he and Sadie find an easy companionship right away. Finn is able to give Sadie the attention she is missing from Nate. When the sparks start to fly between them Sadie has to decide if she can fight for the man she’s tied to or start something new with the man who wants her in this story of forbidden love.

Slip of the Tongue is torturous and beautiful, and it left me with a major book hangover. Since I wasn’t ready to let go of Nate and Sadie and Finn I stopped over at Hawkins website to check out all of her inspiration examples. She’s got a pinterest board and playlist and it all exactly what I pictured. Now, I want to attend a dinner party at Jessica’s house!

La Roux’s writing style is captivating. She’s definitely one to watch.

EXCERPT: Hooking Up

Read the first chapter of Hooking Up by Helena Hunting.

Amalie Whitfield is the picture of a blushing bride during her wedding reception–but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of proclaiming his undying love, her husband can be heard, by Amalie and their guests, getting off with someone else. She has every reason to freak out, and in a moment of insanity, she throws herself at the first hot-blooded male she sees. But he’s not interested in becoming her revenge screw.

Mortified and desperate to escape the post-wedding drama, Amalie decides to go on her honeymoon alone, only to find the man who rejected her also heading to the same tiny island for work. But this time he isn’t holding back. She should know better than to sleep with someone she knows, but she can’t seem to resist him.

They might agree that what happens on the island should stay on the island, but neither one can deny that their attraction is more than just physical. 

Filled with hilariously scandalous situations and enough sexual chemistry to power an airplane from New York City to the South Pacific, Hooking Up is the next standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Helena Hunting, the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series and Shacking Up.
