[New Release &Review] I DO(N'T) BY Leddy Harper




Title: I Do(n't)
Author: Leddy Harper
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 11, 2017



Blurb


I fell in love with Holden York when I was six years old.

Most of my youth came with spiral notebooks filled with doodles, wedding plans, and “Janelle York” looped in bubbly handwriting.

However, one night in Vegas changed everything.

I woke up to more than just a fantasy of my brother’s best friend.

Five years later, I'm standing on his doorstep confronting him about the secret he kept from me.

If you think this is the story of how we rode off into the sunset together…
You’re so wrong.

But if you think this is the story of how Holden blackmailed me into living with him...
You couldn't be more right.

MY REVIEW: 


BY LAURA LEE 

WOW!!! EPIC ending to a Fantastic Series!!! 

What Roman and Julianna have gone through was one heck of a roller-coaster ride. One that I would have jumped from before the first downhill decent. But these two have stuck together and it has made their love for each other that much stronger.

“The most terrifying thing any of us can do is to fall in love. Why do you think they call it ‘falling’ in love? The greater the love, the harder we will fight against it.” 

How true is that!!! Roman and Julianna have fallen in love and their fight is one that will attempt to bring down an empire. The love these two feel for each other is so strong. That while reading this book, I could feel how much they deserved each other!

Go on, do your worst. Challenge me. I’m ready. I’m not afraid of you anymore. We’ll see who comes out on top. 

Roman finally got it thru his thick skull…He is a Tyrell. He does what he wants, when he wants. Now he has come up with a plan… But will that plan work or will that plan backfire and hurt the one he is trying to save!!

Sienna Blake NAILED it with this conclusion!!!





BY SHABBY SHABNAMARORA 




Pulse pounding story which takes you on a high speed car chase like thrill. I never ever put the book down, even for a minute.
It's that engrossing !!
Books 1 & 2 laid ground , created the backdrop for this perfect story about imperfect people. Roman and Juliana , who have stood every trial and test for their love...what if they are Ill fated like their literary counterparts?! **gasp** . I cried many times reading the story because a love so true and selfless shouldn't die ....should it?!
The truth was, I had fallen in love with Roman Tyrell and I didn’t know how to crawl out of love. Every time it felt like I had made progress, I would be reminded of him and I’d slide right back down. It was an irreversible love. An unbreakable love. Completely unconditional. Beautiful and terrible all at once.We were all to blame for creating a perfect storm resulting in two deaths. Even me.
My heart is still heavy and laden with so many emotions this story has put me through...
I loved the story, the flawed characters, the hopeless happenstances and tragic karmas.
Reminded me of a story I read once , where a couple so deeply in love sacrificed their precious possessions to buy gifts for each other. The boy sells his guitar to buy her a comb, the girl sells her hair to buy him new chords.
This story has sacrifices similar to that. Selflessness to a fault.
Well done Sienna, creating an unforgettable tale of endless love

[New Release] ABSINTHE by Winter Renshaw

















IMG_3452.PNG



The name on the screen was “Absinthe.”

I knew her as the sultry voice blowing up my phone for late night chats about Proust and Hemingway interspersed between the best phone sex I never knew I could have.

We’d never met.

Until the day she walked into my office, her cherry lips wrapped around a candy apple sucker and an all too familiar voice that said, “They said you wanted to see me, Principal Hawthorne?”

[Cover Reveal] HOOKED by Whitney Barbetti & Karla Sorensen

Title: Hooked
Authors: Karla Sorensen & Whitney Barbetti
Genre: Dark Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs
Photograph: By Braadyn
Release Date: August 23, 2017



Blurb

X and I were probably doomed from the start.

That’s what happens when you meet in court-mandated group therapy and then try to steal from him to pay off your blackmailing drug dealer. Former drug dealer, thank you very much. I'm turning over a new leaf and all that.

Which is why I should leave him alone.

Except he tempts me to do things I swore I’d stop doing. It’s that whole gruff, grumbly, anti-social thing he has going on. Him, flame. Me, moth. Something about him calls to me, makes the blood hum in my body. And I don't want that feeling to end.


Lucy Connors is straight-up insane.

She looks like a Disney princess and tries my patience in more ways than I thought possible. Besides the fact that I have to save her cute little ass from jail, I can’t quite figure out how to leave her alone. Even when she’s trying her hand at Breaking and Entering. Especially when it's myhouse she's burglarizing.

Yeah, we were probably doomed from the start.

But that’s the thing about being hooked on something so good, and so bad for you—you don’t walk away when you should.













Karla Sorensen

Well, let’s see ... I’m a wife and a mother. I’m a writer who wants to make people smile when they read my words. I own a dog that sheds roughly eighteen pounds of hair every day. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I'll love you forever.

Whitney Barbetti

I am a wife to one and a mom to two humans and one cat. I have a deep and abiding love for nachos - especially the kind with the liquid cheese, like from Taco Bell (sorry). I run on less than four hours of sleep thanks to copious amounts of Diet Coke. (Note: this paragraph is not sponsored by anyone except my hungry stomach.) 

As a Navy brat, I grew up all over the country, from California and up the east coast from Florida to New England and Colorado. I currently live in Idaho, where we have lots of potatoes and windmills. 

I write character-driven contemporary romance novels, heavy on the emotional connection. I LOVE love. I love writing about broken characters who find their soul mates.

About Jodi:

Jodi Ellen Malpas wrote her debut series, The This Man Trilogy, in secret, worried about what people might think if they knew what her imagination was capable of. She was shocked herself. But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN – the first book of the This Man Trilogy – in October 2012. She took a chance on the story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters. Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of women’s fiction. Jodi went on to self-publish the second book in the trilogy, Beneath This Man in Jan 2013, just before Grand Central Publishing, part of the Hachette Book Group, picked up the popular trilogy and the unknown Jodi. The third book of the trilogy, This Man Confessed, took Jodi to the top of the bestsellers lists, earning her the proud title of #1 New York Times Bestselling Author. This Man has since been voted one of the top romance novels of all time. With so much love, enthusiasm and a thirst for her words from her readers, Jodi suddenly wasn’t afraid of her imagination anymore. She went on to write The One Night Trilogy with the delectable and mysterious Miller Hart, and stole the hearts of her readers once again. Her first stand-alone novel, THE PROTECTOR, released in September 2016 and has since been nominated for a Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award. Jodi’s next stand-alone novel. THE FORBIDDEN, is set for release in August 2017. All seven of her published novels have hit the New York Times best sellers list – as well as the Sunday Times list and various international best seller lists. Her work is now published in over 24 languages across the world. Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a mojito addict, is famous for her obsession with Converse, and has a terrible weak spot for Alpha Males. Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion – a passion she now shares with her devoted readers

BY SHABBY SHABNAMARORA 





it was aThe forbidden is too irresistible. It has a dangerous allure and a compelling magnetism. And it’s certainly going to inflict pain and anguish.
And yet we gravitate towards it like masochist suckers :'(


description



It's a very delicate balance to attempt to venture into the Forbidden trope and neutrally justify the story but Jodi has nailed it and in spades!!!
Annie meets Jack in a bar and it's Instant Fireworks . Their bodies and souls ignite like never before. A lustful night of passion that follows, leads to the walk of shame in the morning , And Annie bolts.
She then comes face-to-face with her wickedly sexy and devastatingly dangerous stranger in the most inconvenient of circumstances , and guess what ..........he's Off Limits !!



What do you do when you can't control your feelings for someone? When you know you shouldn't go there? Not even in your head. 



You go Crazy. End of!
The heart breaks and weeps , fights a prolonged battle with her head and the result is buckets of guilt that douse her perpetually. She whips herself with her own judgemental eye . Labelling herself 
Careless 
Deceitful
Manipulative
scheming
calculating 



description



But she's neither . She's just a girl who had the misfortune of falling deeply in love with a man who wasn't hers to call .
Jack is a very strong and stolid character. He doesn't bullshit, he's very firm in his stance. Oh, and he's amazing in bed. The sex is off the wall hawt. ;p Jodi writes "sex againstThe wall " like no other and each of her books has bathroom sex as an essential. I love it!!!.
That brings me to the ethical angle of the story. I've been really conflicted for the past couple of days and here's my stance - life is too short to be trapped and unhappy . When you find somebody who makes your heart sing and loves you Truely, Madly ,Deeply . You grab that sucker with both hands and never let go . End of !



description



I’ve seen the reactions of people who have found out about affairs. They tarnish each and every adulterer with the same brush. I accept that many affairs are based on nothing more than sex— something exciting and daring in a life of boredom and discontent. But what about the people who meet that little bit too late and share something special like Jack and I do? Are we supposed to let that person pass on by, turn away from someone who finds your soul and kisses it?



I have to note something here. There's a pulse of anguish and weighted lust that throbs in the story in the background , like a metronome. You can feel it, taste it, hear it. It's dread filled and ominous at points , hypnotising and blinding at others. But it's there , ticking like a clock . I almost didnt wanna finish the book as much as I wanted to race towards the end.
The writing is phenomenal. It's her maturest work yet and I enjoyed reading it so much , I pulled an all nighter . She doesn't give any character a free pass , just dues and Karma and all. The setting, the side characters are really precise and help advance the story. Lizzy is the voice of reason yet a true friend. 
I loved the boldness and desperation of the story. I loved the helplessness of the characters. I loved the heart of the story. I loved the bravery of Jodi , that she didn't colour inside the lines and stick to the box !

[New Release, Giveaway & Book Reviews ] THE WILD by K.Webster

The Wild

by K. Webster 
Publication Date: August 7, 2017 
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Taboo



I brought them to the wilderness because we couldn’t cope with our reality. The plan was to make a new life that didn’t include heartache. No people. No technology. No interference. Just us. A chance to piece together what was broken. But the wilderness is untamed and harsh. Brutal and unforgiving. It doesn’t give a damn about your feelings. Tragedy lives there too. No escaping the truths that won’t let you go. All you can do is survive where love, no matter how beastly, is the only thing you can truly count on. Confusing. Wrong. Twisted. Beautiful. Sick. Love is wild. And we’re going to set it free. Warning: The Wild is an extremely taboo story. Most will find that the themes in this book will make you incredibly uncomfortable. This book is only for the brave, the open-minded, and the ones who crave love in even the most dismal of situations. Extreme sexual themes and violence in certain scenes, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to heavy taboo themes, then this story is not for you.

BY LAURA LEE 




If you are familiar with K. Webster books, you will do just fine reading this one. If you are NOT familiar…PLEASE PLEASE Read, the WARNING!!! This book has quite a few MAJOR triggers for people… If you have the slightest fright about anything that is not inside the box, step away from this book now… Pinky Promise me that much… I will even add the warning for you here…

Warning:
The Wild is an extremely taboo story. Most will find that the themes in this book will make you incredibly uncomfortable. This book is only for the brave, the open-minded, and the ones who crave love in even the most dismal of situations. Extreme sexual themes and violence in certain scenes, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to heavy taboo themes, then this story is not for you. 


It’s been awhile since I stuck my nose in a book and didn’t come up until I was finished. This book was that engrossing. It’s like a train wreck that you can’t look away from. From tragedy after tragedy…the horrible things that this family has been through is enough for anyone to throw in the towel and call it quits.

But…just like every K. Webster book, she pulls you in and tests your limits… chews you up and has you questioning your sanity… The thing you have to do is STICK WITH IT!!! That’s all I am going to say about it… Pinky Promise me this too… You Will Stick With It.

I can't breathe !! 
I can't Effing breathe!!! 
She did not go THERE !! 
 Oh yes she did **breathe deep**

Love. Lust. Darkness. Right. Wrong. Sadness. Happiness. Anger. Everything

Reed's family is Xmas picture postcard perfect. Till a tragedy strikes tearing them apart. He decides to take the remaining fragments and move to the Wilderness , in order to patch them back together amidst Nature and Love. But The Wild is like a parellel universe where rules don't apply 

we grow up learning norms and behaviour that are deemed acceptable. Yet when all of life's easiness is stripped from us and we're thrust into something arduous, those norms get forgotten. They get shoved to the side as instinct guides the way. The mind is no longer needed. A useless organ. It's the heart that grows Wild. It forges the way . It makes decisions that defy reason and instead break rules that don't exist out here. 
The heart becomes a hungry, selfish beast.
It devours the mind and feeds the desires.
My heart is free.
No longer caged by the world but released by love.

There's a Forest , a cabin, a river and two souls 
description

If you think Webster was twisted before, she's goes a push further into a deep hole. And you follow her spiralling down. She's infected me with her darkness and i'm happy to dwell there . Alone. Dark. Cold. While she eats cupcakes upstairs ;p
This book is NOT FOR THE QUEASY . If you have triggers STAY AWAY.
The subject matter is very tabboo, very dark but if you love following Our Twisted Master aka Webster , you'll love it.
I loved it & devoured it ,my heart thumping out of my chest all the time.
I am going to Hell, that's for sure 
description
I pm bombed my bestie throughout, going from queasy to elated to horny to sickened to ecstatic to joyous to blessed, all in one book.
It's a must read but READ IT TILL THE END !!
