[Release Blitz & Giveaway ]:Reckless Love by J. Saman

Reckless Love CR-3

live


♥ ♥ ♥


3 Reckless-Love-eBook-2 

  I let her slip through my fingers… No, that’s a lie. I was reckless and pushed her away. I was never supposed to fall for her. She was my tutor. My best friend. My fantasy. I tried to stay away. I failed. Then we graduated and everything changed. All I needed was a step back. A moment to breathe… And by the time I came up for air, she was in the arms of another man. Four years later, everything is different. And when I see her again, I remember why I should have never let her go in the first place. But second chances don't always come easy. Even when you're determined to get them. *** It started on day one… New school. New life. And there he was, the boy I grew up with, walking up the steps of my very first class. Except now, the boy from my memories was gone, and his place was an Adonis of a man. It didn’t take much for me to fall for him. Even though I knew we were doomed from the start. But when you find something that perfect, you don't second guess it. Until it ends. Four years later, he’s back. Steamrolling through my life like he never broke my heart to begin with. Only this time, I’m older, wiser and know that second chances are the stuff of fairytales.

[Release Blitz, Giveaway & Book Reviews]: FAMILY TIES by Stephie Walls




Title: Family Ties
Author: Stephie Walls
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 21, 2018



Blurb

With a history like ours, the meaning of the word family tended to tangle into something unrecognizable. DNA and bloodlines didn’t tie us together, and neither did our last names. Various shades of grey blurred the branches of our twisted family tree.

I wasn’t her brother.
They weren’t my parents.
Not that it mattered…

She was off limits.

Portia was my friend.
Then my foster sister.
And she’d always be the love of my life.

4 Lemon Pie Stars

I absolutely love the way Stephie Walls can draw you into a book just by the blurb. This book is exactly what the blurb states…

I wasn’t her brother.
They weren’t my parents.
Not that it mattered…

She was off limits.


Portia was placed with her foster family after she lost her mother from drugs. She was adopted by the loving couple who raised her since that day. 

Jude was a in and out foster child. With no other family, he was placed in the home when his mother’s illness spiked. 

Years have gone by; Jude and Portia were the children that Hensley and Ernie could never have. Family vacations, school functions, family dinners…they raised Jude and Portia like they were their own children. 

When feelings get to be too much for these two to hide, is it truly wrong that they want to be together? Even though everyone sees them as brother and sister?

It’s a battle of right and wrong in their minds. Right because it feels so good when they are together. Wrong because they’ve been raised as brother and sister. 

It’s a tug of war, back and forth, should we or should we not. Reasons vs. Doubt. Which side will win? At what cost to the people who have raised you as their own.

The Heart Wants What The Heart Wants 
Let me start by saying that love follows no boundries, no age, no relations. It's wonder when Portia and Jude, foster kids in Shaw home, just stumble & fall in love. It's messy, conflicting, tearing, slaying love
This was the Portia I’d loved as a kid, through the various awkward stages of puberty, and now into adulthood—although each with a different passion. 

description

Hearts oscillate between should we/shouldn't we constantly, which became annoying but I tota Lily get it. Social restrictions ,Tabboo relationship, which is technically not forbidden, but they are young kids. Moral compass is going haywire, physical reactions belie sensible morals.
I wasn't her brother
They weren't my parents
Not that it mattered......
She's off limits
 

At times, maybe few only, Portia seemed self absorbed and childish. Jude was angry and frothing with jealousy more than she was.  But at least he read smut. #GoJude!!
Pick up this slow burn story and watch your heart twist & hurt

[Release Blitz, Giveaway & Book Review]: EVERYTHING I NEVER WANTED by K. Street




Title: Everything I Never Wanted
Author: K. Street
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 22, 2018



Blurb

A single dad, contemporary romance standalone.

This wasn’t supposed to be my life.

One phone call was all it took to bring me back to the small town I had grown up in. Everything had changed, and staying away was no longer an option.

Four and a half years later, I was a widowed single father still here, still trying to pick up the pieces. We were doing just fine on our own, my little girl and me.

At least, we were until Camryn Parker stumbled into our lives. The woman was like a tornado after a hurricane; she was the storm I never saw approaching. Behind her beauty and sarcastic wit, she was just as broken as I pretended not to be. As hard as I tried to resist, it was impossible not to fall in love with her.

In the end, it took nearly losing it all for me to realize everything I never wanted was exactly what I needed.

Give me a hot single parent dad who is totally an all-around great guy and I am in!!!

Tucker is surviving…barely.
It’s been 4 years…
He can’t move on…
He hasn’t grieved any…
Not for any of them.

But the little girl, his ‘doodlebug’ is everything. It’s not been easy… 

Camryn is ready to start the new chapter in her life. Moving to a new town, starting a new job, this is how the chapter starts. She would have never thought that ‘Lucille’ would end up being sick. What a way to meet the first person in town! 

I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. Of course Laura being in the story helped tremendously because as a mother, that is how I would treat my son too <3 nbsp="" span="">

If you are looking for a great single dad romance book, pick this one up! The story was quick paced and flowed great. Plus, who doesn’t love a great ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ sing along.

[RELEASE BLITZ & GIVEAWAY] - Saved by Hazel James




Title: Saved
A Battles Novel
Author: Hazel James
Genre: Romance
Release Date: June 21, 2018



Blurb

Leilani Moretti

Life is out to get me.
Humvee accident that took my right hand? Strike one.
Cancer three years later that stole my breasts and hair? Strike two.
An overbearing mother who seems to think I’m twelve, not twenty-seven?
Yeah, I’m out of there.

I thought moving to Oklahoma would give me a fresh start. I hoped life would finally cut me some damn slack. But between the inept people at the VA hospital and a boss who’s hell-bent on fixing me, I just want to be left alone. Haven’t I been through enough already?

Clay Prescott

Joining the Army and deploying to Afghanistan? Hard.
Kicking an alcohol addiction and starting a business combining fitness and mental health? Harder.
Worth it? Hell yes.

Battles, my gym, has been so successful that I hired a new employee—a veteran herself—to help me open a second location. And that’s when it all goes to hell. Everything I’ve ever stood for is called into question, and the one person I thought I could count on disappears. I’ve spent the last ten years helping everyone else. What happens when I can’t even save myself?

How can I help others when I can’t even save myself?

Excerpt

Having cancer is an invitation to be touched. Doctors. Nurses. Sympathetic friends. An overbearing mother. For months, I dreaded having someone else’s hands on my body.
But now? Now I crave it. Especially with Clay staring at me like I’m the only one who can quench his thirst. I’d gladly be his water. The glass. Hell, I’d even be the ice cubes if he’d give me a few hours and a freezer.
“Um, will you tie me?” I give myself ten bonus points—five for speaking coherently and five for omitting the word “up” at the end.
He smiles and steps behind me, and my skin prickles in anticipation. Even my goose bumps want to be as close to him as possible. But none of that compares to the second his fingers brush the skin on my shoulders. I officially take back every curse word I aimed at Rebecca when I opened my suitcase.
I’m baking her a cake as soon as I get home.
“Is that too tight?” Clay’s voice is deeper, huskier, and damn if that’s not the sexiest thing I’ve heard in…ever. I want to say yes, so he’ll have to start over, but a girl only has so much self-control. He’d probably say something like “how do you want it?” and then I’d turn around and hump his leg because I’m all about hands-on demonstrations.
“It’s perfect.”
“Great. I’ll double-knot it so you can just slip it over your head next time.”
I’d be sad if it wasn’t for the light squeeze he gives my neck when he’s done. Committing that feeling to memory, I pull a tank top over my head and slide my feet into my sneakers, shoving all thoughts of molesting Clay out of my mind. “Where do you want to go first?”
“Shouldn’t I be asking you that?” The edges of his mouth tip up.
“Yeah, yeah, I’m the world’s worst Hawaiian.” I shoot playful daggers at him.
“Hey, you said it, not me.” He holds his palms out, proclaiming his innocence. “Thankfully, one of us came prepared. I was thinking of a short hike and then maybe some paddle boarding.”
It’s my turn to lift a hand. “The hike sounds fine, but one of us did not come prepared for paddle boarding. Unless you don’t mind going in circles.” His eyes crinkle as I simulate rowing with my stump.
“Don’t worry, this place has two-person paddle boards.” He pulls the keys to our rental Jeep from his pocket and twirls the ring around his finger. “Ready?”

[Release Blitz & Giveaway ]: Beach Bum Billion-Heiress by Marika Ray


Title: Beach Bum Billion-Heiress
Series: Beach Squad Series
Author: Marika Ray
Genre: Billionaire/Opposites Attract
Release Date: June 21, 2018








Can an heiress get down and dirty with a local lifeguard...for longer than one night? 
When a hippie girl with a free spirit grows up in an "old money" conservative family, arguments are sure to ensue. Right before her thirtieth birthday, Sage's father, sick of her bohemian lifestyle, gives her an ultimatum - tear down The Surf Shack in Huntington Beach and build a five-star restaurant, or lose her trust fund AND his multi-billion dollar company. 
Jax, the owner of The Surf Shack, has vowed to keep his late father's shop running while juggling his full-time job as a beach lifeguard...even if the hot little thing in a business suit tempts him with her conflicting personalities. Is she a business shark in a designer suit? Or a Mother Earth loving hippie who wants to get dirty with him?
Ultimately, they'll have to decide what's worth fighting for: love or legacy.











Marika Ray spends her time behind a computer crafting stories, walking the beaches of southern California scoping out the lifeguards, and making healthy food for her kids and husband whether they like it or not. Prior to writing novels, Marika held various jobs in the finance industry, with private start-up companies, and then in health & fitness. Cats may have nine lives, but Marika believes everyone should have nine careers to keep things spicy.
Marika enjoys writing all types of fiction novels, based on what inspires her. Right now she's working on stand-alone romances in the Beach Squad series, all about California lifeguards and their equally fearless women. Moderate suspense, a splash of humor, and lots of steamy romance...all with the beautiful ocean as a relaxing backdrop!
