New Release Tuesday - An Indecent Proposal by Katee Robert!!!





New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert continues her smoking-hot series about the O'Malleys-wealthy, powerful, and full of scandalous family secrets.

Greed. Ambition. Violence. Those are the "values" Olivia Rashidi learned from her Russian mob family and the values she must leave behind for the sake of her daughter. When she meets Cillian O'Malley, she recognizes the red flag of his family name . . . yet she still can't stop herself from seeing the smoldering, tortured man. To save her family, Olivia sets out to discover Cillian's own secrets, but the real revelation is how fast- and how hard she's falling for him.

Plagued by a violent past, Cillian is more vulnerable than anyone realizes. Anyone except Olivia, whose beauty, compassion, and pride have him at "hello," even if she's more inclined to say good-bye to an O'Malley. While his proposal of sex with no strings seems simple, what he feels for her isn't, especially after he learns that she belongs to a rival crime family. Cillian knows that there is no escape from the life, but Olivia may be worth trying and dying for . .

by K. Webster
War & Peace

They’d won the battle and I held up the white flag of defeat…
But the war wasn’t OVER.

I suffered the aching loss of what they had stolen from me.
OVER and OVER again, my heart broke.
The white Queen and the black King had taken OVER the game
and ruled for what seemed like eternity.

Until one day, eternity was finally OVER.

I was the dark knight who would rise again and conquer.
I was the man who would win OVER the most important piece on the board.

A slayer. A protector. A father.
A new king with the blackest of hearts.

And head OVER heels in love with…
The little princess who owned my twisted soul.

Sometimes the villains don’t just want their happy ending…
They demand it.

This isn’t OVER, baby.
This will never be OVER.

Warning:

Review: My Song for You

My Song for You My Song for You by Stina Lindenblatt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Final Score - 5 Stars!!!

I couldn't put this book down the closer I got to the ending! Just... WOW! Maybe even better than the first book. My heart is still racing/reeling from the events that unfolded.

Poor Callie survived so much - the loss of her family - to go onto raise her sweet nephew Logan as her child. She's struggling not only to be the best mom, but the best parent to a child with special needs. I say she WINS big time. Her efforts show how much she is willing to sacrifice to make Logan's needs met.

Jared is living the dream - a rock star. He doesn't expect to meet "the one" or to settle down and have a family, but life isn't always how you plan it out. Unexpected surprises come in the form "fate" - if you believe in it. What he finds in Callie and Logan just may be the best thing to come.

I loved this story. It was engaging and I just couldn't put it down. From the first to the last page - Greatness unfolded.

I hope there's a follow up because while the epilogue was short and sweet, I can't help but want to read a follow up!

Review: Anti-Stepbrother

Anti-Stepbrother Anti-Stepbrother by Tijan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Final Score - 4.5 Stars!

This was my VERY first Tijan book (I do have others, just haven't gotten to them yet) and it DID NOT disappoint!

The banter, quips, jokes, comradery, angst - while puzzling at times, just added another layer to the story. I have to admit, I couldn't follow some of the social ethics of life in college - I was never part of any clique or such - so learning about Frat's and Sorority's was not only challenging but foreign to me as well.

Summer was confusing as a character to me - I just didn't get how she could love Kevin. There was no redeemable quality to his character. Her relationship with Caden confused me as well, but by the halfway mark - it started to make sense. He let Summer... be Summer. In all her spastic, rambling behavior, I found Summer thru Caden's eyes. And in the end, she grew on me. Caden was a GOD to me from the beginning to the end. The introduction to his past was at times painful to read, but I'm interested in knowing more about Marcus and Colton's dynamic.

All in all, I enjoyed this read... even if at times, I became lost but quickly found my way again.

Blurb


He told me to 'settle, girl.'
He asked if 'something was wrong with me?'
He said I was an ‘easy target.’
That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.
I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha.

He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother.

Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming.

I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what would happen if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?


anti stepbrother ad.jpg


Excerpt
He wasn’t looking at me any more. I wasn’t even sure he was really in the room.
I needed to leave this alone. He had given me the clues—looking away, his jaw clenching, pain like I’d never heard from him sounding loud and clear. My instincts were telling me to shut up, but I couldn’t. I had this burning need to know more about Caden. I needed to get in there, past his walls, and I wanted to understand him.
I wanted to help him.
Caden was hurting, and I wanted to take that away.
“What happened?”
Caden turned his gaze to me now, and I felt branded by the pain I saw. His eyes were stricken. “Does it matter?”
“No.” My breath caught and held in my chest. I wanted to go to him, but I also wanted to slink away. I was stirring up his pain, but I had to know. “What happened, Caden?”
“Why do you have to know?”
“Because it’s hurting you.”
I made a decision, though I had no idea what the ramifications were going to be. I stood, my legs going numb and my stomach clenching, and I moved to his side. He leaned back, his head falling to the couch, and he watched me.
The need to ease some of his hurt outweighed the fear of what would happen next. Swallowing tightly, I stepped over to straddle him and sat down.
“What are you doing?”
He asked that softly, still holding his beer. I took it from his hands and put it on the stand next to the couch. Then I just sat there. He had to do the rest. I’d already made the first move.
I glanced down at his hands, feeling like an idiot. “What happened?”
“Why are you pushing this?”
I looked back up to find confusion warring with need in his eyes. He wasn’t pushing me away, so I sank further into his lap.
“You haven’t told anyone else about this.” It wasn’t really a question, but I saw the confirmation in his eyes. My chest tightened, thinking about whatever secret he held. “Please tell me.”
“No.” He shifted forward, and I braced myself, expecting him to push me away. He didn’t. His hands grasped the backs of my legs and lifted me so I was more fully on his lap.
I could feel him between my legs, and my breasts almost pressed against his chest. I waited. I wanted to see what else he’d say
“But not because I don’t want you to know,” he added. “Because it’s not my secret to tell.”
I nodded, my stomach doing somersaults now. “That makes sense. I can respect that.”
And there we were. His hands cupped my ass, and the pain in his gaze became something darker, something I felt too, something that began to turn off all rational thought.
“What are we doing here?” he questioned, his voice like a caress in itself.
I leaned forward, my gaze lingering on his lips. “I didn’t really think it through.”
“And now?”
“Still not thinking it through.”
“You’re okay with that?”
In that moment, the truth exploded in me. I wanted him. I wanted this—but it was more. I needed this.
I didn’t answer.
I closed the distance between us.

I didn't begin writing until after undergraduate college. There'd been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can't blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I'm hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.

Review: Neighbor Dearest

Neighbor Dearest Neighbor Dearest by Penelope Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review to come...

Edited to add in - Final Score - 5 ELEC IS STILL MY HEART FOR LIFE, BUT DAMIEN HAS A PIECE AS WELL Stars!!!

What can I say about this book? I felt as if I was consistently flopping between two strong emotion during the entire reading - anger and frustration.

After reading how Elec and Greta belonged together in "Stepbrother Dearest", I didn't think about Chelsea afterward at all. This book showed me the other side of that devastation - hers. And boy did I feel for her. Her anger with Elec, and her confusion over what went wrong. She just wanted to make sense out of a situation that was impossible. It was nice to know that Elec still helped her out with the rent on the apartment they shared. He didn't have to, but that's not Elec nature. He truly loved Chelsea, but not enough that it eclipsed his feeling for Greta.

Of course, the frustration immediately set in with the introduction of the moody artist, Mr. Damien. The constant push and pull from day ONE that they had, but chose each and every-time to ignore. I wanted to hit him with my G-ma's cast iron skillet at times! True story.

It was hard to see these share such a special spark from the very first conversation they had to just struggling to ignore their attraction. I kept wondering if and when they would give in. That goodness it wasn't too long.

The ups and down Chelsea and Damien faced were heart-wrenching and heartbreaking to consider, but they made it thru. In tact and together. That's the kind of love we all strive to find and keep. I would love to see more of them in another book. *hint, Hint*

Overall, this book just lit me up with both happy and sad tears. All there is left to say is - You don't want to mess this ride!

Penelope Ward has struck GOLD again with this story. Now, about Tyler & Jade's story ... ???

Review: Stepdaddy Savage

Stepdaddy Savage Stepdaddy Savage by Charleigh Rose
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review to come...

Edited to add in - Final Score ... 4.5 stars!

I LOVED this book. From beginning to end, it was playful in that "will they"? "won't they"? way.

Graham isn't a man of many words. Action. He's ALL about showing you who he is, what he wants/like, and how he's gonna get it!

I felt so bad for Dahlia. To have Annabelle as a mom. Why didn't she just go & live with her grandmother?

Annabelle was by far the most disgusting excuse for a human being, let alone parent. I'm still upset that she walked away with what she did. She should have gotten zero, Zilch, NOTHING! If I was Graham, I would have fought the bitch harder & longer.

I felt the ending, while short & sweet was a bit abrupt and it didn't sit right with me. I wish there could have been some more insight into their future - i.e. at least two more time jumps.

All in all, this was a quick & quite enjoyable read - if you get my meaning *wink*

Review: This Isn't Over, Baby

This Isn't Over, Baby This Isn't Over, Baby by K. Webster
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Final Score - 5 THIS BOOK HAS TOTALLY F'D ME UP Stars!

*received ARC from author in exchange for an honest review*

I've been wrecking my brain ALL night trying to write an epic review of this book. And the way I want to say it, would be spoiler-ish and wrong! So, I guess I'm going to have to go the short and sweet (sorta) route.

I haven't been able to put it down (until now) and now that have (before I shut my eyes for some much needed rest), I'm immediately wanting to pick it back up to finish it off.

I need to know what depraved things are going to happen next?

I need to know what Gabe's next move is? Or Hannah's even?

I just need to know if this truly isn't over? Cuz I'm at Ch 17 and I still don't know how this going to end?!

This book ... I thought #BloodtoDust by L.J. Shen gave me my last case of major #BookHangover.

It may just pale in comparison to #ThisIsntOverBaby. -

These were my thoughts at about 2 am. I came to this conclusion a little ago as it sums up my feelings about this book:

I started the book at about 7 pm last night. I finished about 4 am this morning.

Mind. Blown. Completely. Apart.

I haven't even read the other two books first. Which I forgot about and tend not to do, cuz I'm crazy like that and like to read series' in order.

But I so did NOT need to do. This book stood alone to me. Gah! I'm still trying to process!!!

Epic. And now, major Major MAJOR #bookhangover

TRSOR Hosted Excerpt Reveal for Anti-Stepbrother by Tijan!

ANTI_STEP_BROTHER_EXCERPT.jpg
Excerpt
The sun shone into the room, and it took me a few moments to realize where I was. I didn’t recognize the king-size bed, or the black sheets, but then Caden walked past the open door and all the memories flooded into place.
I slept at his place.
I glanced around the bed… I slept in his bed!
“Your alarm’s about to go off in ten minutes,” Caden called from the doorway. He had a cup of coffee in hand and wore only jeans.
I tried to keep my eyes front and center, but I lost. The tattoos were a nice little zig-zag pattern, pulling my gaze down, all the way down. Caden’s slow, smooth chuckle told me he knew what I’d just done. My cheeks only warmed a little.
I shot him a look, falling back to the pillow. “I feel like this should be the first skip day of my school career.”
“You’ve never skipped before?”
I shook my head, rolling it side to side on the pillow. “Am I missing out? Should I embrace my inner deviant?”
He smirked. “You can skip a class for any reason in the world. It’s your life.”
I sat up, eyeing that coffee. “You were supposed to be the bad influence.”
His eyebrow lifted. “I’m not selling it enough?” He lifted his cup. “You want some coffee?”
“I’m wondering if today is the day I try coffee too.”
“You’ve never had coffee?”
“I’m beginning to think I’m lame.” I thought about it. “Really lame.”
“You slept at some guy’s house last night. Think of it that way.” His smirk was back. “Not so lame now.”
I could do one better. “I slept at a fraternity house.”
And you drank beer.”
“It was the second night in a row that I drank beer.”
“See? Not so lame after all.”
“You’re right.” I sat up. “I’m halfway to total badass.”
He grinned. “We cuddled last night, and you could think of it as dry humping. You almost got some last night.”
Except I hadn’t, and we were in the friend zone. Why were my hands curling around the covers into tight balls? I glanced down and forced them to loosen, then shrugged, trying to be the nonchalant badass I was.
“You carried me to bed. Almost the same thing.”
Suddenly, the joking was gone, and his eyes burned. I could feel his heat from across the room, and my body reacted, instantly warming even before he said a word.
“Nothing’s the same as sliding inside,” he murmured after a moment. “The feel of being in there, feeling that clench around you, knowing you can push as deep as you want, as hard or gently as you want. Nope. I’ve gotta step off the joke train for a moment here. Nothing is remotely the same as that feeling.”
Fuck. My pulse spiked.
He tossed me a look. “Maybe I’ll cop a feel the next time.”
I pretended to groan. “One more notch on my badass peg. You better cop a feel next time.”
“Is that all I am to you? A notch on the bedpost? I feel so used, Stoltz.”
Okay. My last name. We were back on familiar ground here. But my grin was still a little shaky.
“Get used to it, Banks. I’m only disguised as this plain Jane. Inside there’s a wild woman just waiting to be let loose.”
He didn’t reply.
He stared at me for a few more seconds, then straightened from the doorway. “There’s nothing plain about you, Summer.”
