[RELEASE BLITZ & GIVEAWAY]- Ask Me Why by Harloe Rae




Title: Ask Me Why
Author: Harloe Rae
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 20, 2019



Blurb

One deep breath. Two slow blinks. Three hollow beats.
I’m still here. 
After three years, that reminder isn’t as necessary. But everyone has their bad days. This is definitely one of them. 
Until an adorable little boy dashes into my store. 
His zest for life makes me smile in a way that’s been long lost. 
Then I meet his father.
Well, confront is more like it. 

Brance Stone is volatile. 
Offensive. 
Harsh. 
And can’t be bothered to care. 
Not that I want him to. 
I get frostbite just looking into Brance’s glacial stare. But there’s something undeniable about him. 

My misery suddenly craves company. The suffocating numbness lifts whenever Brance is near. That alone should have me running in the opposite direction. Try as I might, there’s no avoiding him. If only I could understand why. As if he’d let me. 

I don’t ask. He doesn’t tell. A silent, bitter truce settles between us. 
That was our first mistake. 
It’s certainly not the last.

Excerpt

Brance’s suit is deliciously rumpled. A naughty gleam lingers in his eyes. Evidence of our kiss lingers on his lips, slightly swollen and red. His hair sticks up in sexy disarray, sections pointing in every direction. I curl my fingers, hiding the guilty offenders. But combing through those silky strands will be committed to memory. I want to do that again, multiple times. But I tamp my trampy side down. For now.

He makes quick work of straightening his tie. “You owe me a story.”

A boulder drops in my gut. “Now?”

Brance sweeps the brown locks off his forehead, erasing more proof of our tryst. “Nah, gotta get back to the office.”

“Already?” I’m still recovering from my orgasm.

He smooths the wrinkles from his shirt. “My schedule leaves no time for deviations. I have a full calendar every day. This indiscretion cost me several hours. I’ll be working late to catch up.”

“Was that a dig at me?”

“Does it matter?”

“Really, Brance? Just like that?”

“Were you expecting something else?”

I open my mouth, then close it. Was I? How could I? Brance smirks at my extended silence.

“That’s what I thought.” He tops it off with a wink for good measure.

“You’re such an—”

“Asshole. Yeah, got it. I don’t have time to rehash the details.”

[Release Blitz]: RAPHAEL by Tillie Cole































BLURB


They are the Fallen. A brotherhood of murderers whose nature compels them to kill. But guided by their leader, Gabriel, the Fallen have learned to use their urges to rid the world of those it is better off without.




For Raphael, sex and death are intertwined. Where there is one, there must be the other. He is a lust killer, luring his victims with the face of an angel and a body built for sin.




And Raphael lives to sin.




His newest mission takes him into the sadistic underworld of Boston’s secret sex clubs, and puts him face to face with his greatest fantasy made flesh.




Maria is everything he’s ever dreamed of, the kill he’s always longed for. She’s not his target. And he knows he must resist. But the temptation is too strong...




Yet Raphael is not the only one with a mission. Maria is not quite what she seems. And as her secrets and Raphael’s unravel, Maria begins to question everything she thought she knew—about evil, about the place she calls home, and about the beautiful sinner she was sent to destroy.




Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and topics some may find triggering. Recommended for age 18 years and up.



The Fallen: Genesis a prequel novella in The Deadly Virtues Series and MUST be read before RAPHAEL (DV: book one).









EXCERPT








“Are you ready, child?” 

Maria nodded at Father Quinn, trying not to fall into the black well of despair. She had crawled out of the abyss once. She wasn’t sure she had the strength to do so again.

He checked his watch. “It’s past midnight. The club will be brimming with carnal sinners. Do you have your cards?” Maria checked in her purse for the ID card the priests had supplied her with and the card that allowed her into the club. Father Murray told her no questions would be asked of her—it was club policy. “Keep that purse with you at all times. And press that button when you see him, or if you feel you are in danger.” Maria nodded again. Her voice was silent as she mentally prepared for what was about to happen.

Maria made for the door, but Father Quinn stopped her with his hand on her arm. She spun around, and Father Quinn pushed a rosary into her hand. Maria had left hers at the convent for safekeeping. She missed the beads as they slipped through her hands in prayer. “Keep this with you, Maria. Do not wear it around your neck or have it where anyone will see. But keep it with you for courage. To know the Lord and Mother Mary are with you.” As soon as the rosary was dropped into her palm, peace filled her. She looked at the new rosary in her hand and studied the red beads and ornate silver cross, Jesus hanging on the crucifix, redeeming mankind’s sins. On closer inspection, Maria noticed a miniscule “B” carved into Jesus’s chest. “It’s beautiful,” she whispered. “But what does the ‘B’ stand for?”

Father Quinn’s eyes flashed with something she couldn’t understand. But he quickly recovered enough to say, “I was told it was originally to represent the Boston archdiocese.” Maria nodded, although she was surprised she had never seen such a design before. Father Quinn laid a hand on her shoulder. Maria froze. She wasn’t comfortable being touched. Especially by a man. Father Quinn leaned in close. “But I like to think it stands for ‘Baptist.’ As in John the Baptist. The man whose sacrifice paved the way for Jesus to save all mankind.”

Maria let those words wash over her. “I like that too,” she replied and kept the rosary in her hand. She turned to the door and, without looking back, stepped out into the hallway and began her mission.

In the privacy of the elevator that would take her to the hotel’s foyer, Maria tucked the rosary into her left bra strap. If she couldn’t wear it publicly, she would wear it as close to her heart as she could manage.

Her legs were jelly as she crossed the marble floor of the lobby and walked on unsteady feet out into the frigid Boston winter. The club was only a few yards away. Keeping her head held high, she played her part as best she could. Feigning confidence had been the greatest challenge so far. Maria was used to keeping her eyes to the ground, hands clasped in constant prayer. Her hands were not linked, but she could still find peace in her faith. Hail Mary, full of grace, Maria prayed silently in her mind as she approached the liquor store. She walked through the automatic doors and headed to the back room, praying she had the entrance right. A steep staircase awaited her on the other side. A large man stood at the bottom of it. Maria handed him her cards as he looked her up and down with a salacious smirk on his face. Handing back the cards, he opened the gate that allowed her to pass upstairs.

Maria heard the music from inside pulsing against the walls. She clutched her purse tightly. Maria had never been to a club before. Before she was taken by William Bridge she had been too young. When she was freed, she pledged herself to the church. Maria was sheltered in a way most twenty-one-year-olds were not. Normally, she was thankful. Right now, she wished she had some prior knowledge of what she was walking into.

Ignoring her shaking hand, Maria opened the door to the club and almost stumbled at the sight that greeted her. She froze on seeing a woman tied to a wooden stake in the center of the room, bound by leather straps and metal chains. She was naked but for a strip of black material in her mouth . . . and there was a man, dressed in a three-piece suit, flogging her with a thin leather strap. Even over the blasting music, Maria heard the strap lashing, marring the woman’s skin. There was even blood. But what disturbed Maria more was the look of ecstasy on her face. 

Maria could barely breathe. There wasn’t a part of her that was functioning as it should. Her breathing and heartbeat were too quick. Her eyes were too wide and her mouth was dry in shock.

What was this place? Maria wanted to run.

Dial 555-SEX-PREP?” for the ride of your life MoFos!!

What a thrilling story, made me hate the words THE END. My eyes were glued to the book, my heart was thumping out of my chest at every page. Why did it finish so soon😭
Full throttle entertainment pot boiler has it all. Love , sizzling sex, angst, emotions and drama
Picking up the book was homecoming for me. I cried and laughed, sang and whistled, drowned and survived the heartbreak of Kevin and Lenny. They are my people and as the family grows, my heart just balloons up to fit them all in❤️

description

The central theme is UNDYING LOVE. The Whatever-It-Takes kind of love, come-what-may and I'll-Wait-Forever kinds.
Love. 
What they say about it is true. It fucking hurts. 
Love is a two-sided sword that cuts at every turn. I know this because Poe’s edges are sharp, and my heart is sliced to fucking shreds. 
The story revisits the backwaters again and I felt immediately at home.
Logan Beach is a magical place where stories arise like plumes of stench from the Swamp. I'd rather live in this mythical place than anywhere else in the world. The kings who run this town- The "Brotherhood", are the BEST EVER created by Tracie. I've been a devotee of King, Bear and Preppy ever since book one. Their sense of belonging and ownership run hand in hand, they rule the town, the MC club, their women and us readers. The women who share their lives are the coolest chicks ever. when I heard about Kevin Clearwater book being written, I was beside myself with joy & anticipation...More #BowTieTillIDie Preppy 😀 
I CANNOT get enough of this suspender clad, super smoothie maker, weirdo and guess what...his brother is a step ahead of him
**whispers** and inches too🤫shhhhhh

description

N9NE- What can I say except he's EVERY NINE INCH Preppy's brother, and then some! He's loyal, powerful, broken, compassionate. SIMPLY THE BEST MAN. I fell hopelessly in love with him and his personality. Drop dead sexy, his heart belongs only to his "Poe" and a mere momentary encounter on a causeway 4 years ago just binds their hearts for eternity. Tragedy strikes and their lives are changed and lost forever. 
“Sometimes, you gotta almost die to remember that you’re alive.” 
This book is a perfect balance of nostalgia and serendipity. Lies and secrets unfurl in every chapter making it impossible to put it down even for a second. The story seemed too short cause it's so engrossing and left me hungry for more. Traces writing skills have made me greedy. I want her to write more, keep giving engaging stories of this dysfunctional family of sorts. #KeepWritingTracie
If you loved King, Bear and Preppy(duhhh) you'll be absolutely besotted with N9NE and Lenny. 
4.5 stars for The Prince Of Logan Beach 

[Release Blitz & Book Review]: VIOLENT ENDS by Jessica Hawkins




Title: Violent Ends
Series: White Monarch #2
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 18, 2019



Blurb

I had a life, love, and future to give.
Until my enemy took a wife.


The devil has a name, and it’s Cristiano de la Rosa. On my wedding day, he was the last man I expected to see standing at the altar. He wants to make me his queen. His brother wants to rescue his princess.

Getting Cristiano to lose control becomes the name of the game, and the stakes are life and death. But as truth and lies blur, loyalty is tested, and our chemistry threatens to reach the melting point, the prize grows less clear. Either freedom no longer means what I think it does, or Cristiano is as devious as everyone says, and he’s mastered the art of playing my mind.

All I know for certain is that nothing is certain. And all you need to know? This is a love story.
But even love stories have to end.

Stumped. For. Words!!! You can knock me down with a feather and give me hammer so I can knock the traitors to a pulp!! Jessica chokes you with a sensational story that will send a shiver up your spine
Gawwwwd Calavera Cartel is rubbing off on me. NOTHING s what it seems which is a revelation for me and Natalia De La Rosa. ALL men in her life are trading her for power. ALL of them, I was so pissed, but kudos to her, this pupa is morphing into a steel spine Monarch Butterfly. Her voice is not heard or just drowned in the cocophany of He said ; He said.

description

Trying to make sense of the confusing fog surrounding her and trying to place her confidence into the cards she's been dealt with. She's not handing out her respect and trust, but instead making them earn it. Her only allegiance and loyalty lies only with HER!👏👏👏👏
I loved her strength and mettle.
“I am not your pawn,”
“You can move me around, buy me, sell me, berate me, but you won’t break me. I’ve known the greatest pain a woman can—first losing my mother, and then having my heart pulverized and my love violated so ruthlessly. But I haven’t broken yet, and I won’t.” 

description

This book is more about character development and growth chart. Natalia is taking hesitant, reluctant steps towards maturity, her eyes are opening and she's being forced to look at the Vista in front of her a little more closely and whole lot clearly.
Pulverized heart and shifting loyalties are the central theme.
Very bold story, will shake your shoulders till you see the truth

[Release Blitz & Book Review]: LETTERS TO MOLLY by Devney Perry









Molly Alcott didn’t expect to open her mailbox one summer morning and find an old letter stuffed between bills and a supermarket flyer. Penned in familiar handwriting, dated over fifteen years ago, the letter was written to Molly after her first date with the man she’ll never forget.

Week after week, new letters appear. Each marks an event in the history of their epic love affair. Each heals a wound. Each holds the confession of the man who still owns Molly’s heart.

The letters are full of promise, hope and love, but truth be told, Molly wishes she could unread them all.

Because the man who wrote these letters is not the one sending them.
















Devney is the USA Today bestselling author of the Jamison Valley series. She lives in Montana with her husband and two children. After working in the technology industry for nearly a decade, she abandoned conference calls and project schedules to enjoy a slower pace at home with her kids. She loves reading and, after consuming hundreds of books, decided to share her own stories. Devney loves hearing from readers! Connect with her on social media.








Very sensitive and yet very, very sensible... What a fabulous combo💕
Thoughtful in mood, Thought provoking in content and well thought out in plotting, If I can sum up the story in one sentence, it'd be - a tragic story between two life changing incidents.
It's not the first and only story of Divorce trope or troubles of married life, But the uniqueness lies in the unexampled narration and plotting. This book has easily wormed it's way in my favorite books list from this year. 
This be my first book by Devney- what a cherry Popper!! 
A sensitive story which could've easily gone wrong on so many levels, but it flew high and touched the sky.
The book starts on a flashback where Finn and Molly meet for the first time and are completely besotted at first sight. They've built this beautiful family and are perfect in facade

description

“Once upon a time.” 
When my life had been a fairy tale. Before the glass slippers had splintered. 
Next chapter jumps to a time long after the devastating separation.
One horrendous catastrophe destroys their marriage, their lives, their families, their peace. And the next one completely annihilates the leftover ruins from the first one.
"Some mistakes were unforgiveable. Some mistakes came with a regret that lived like a monster in your soul." 
You'd think that the couple who fell in love, remained in crazy love, so why did they separate and why were they miserable? And if they were so damn tormented wouldn't it be easier to mend fences?
"What had caused our divorce? What had taken us from a place where all I needed to get through one of the hardest moments of my life was one glance at her?" 


description

I was looking for culprits and Devney didn't give me one! What she gave instead, was a PERSPECTIVE LENS and suddenly I could see and understand better, life and it's convoluted arcs. It was nobody's fault and yet it was an onus that both shared. They both loved deeply and forgot to fight for each other. They both trusted complicity yet both broke that trust..
"I’m ashamed of you. 
I’m ashamed of myself. 
You quit me. 
And I quit you." 
What a mind-boggling dilemma and what an excruciating journey through the gauntlet of a marriage blown to smithereens. Devney skillfully navigates through the debris and manages to restore faith, hope and love where there wasn't any.
It's an introspective story. In the sense that instead of relying on an outside factor to wind up the story, Devney relies on internal monologues and deep buried, tiny ember of true love that somehow still exists in the ashes. The letters fan the flames and it roars back to life
The brilliant masterstroke was the wait. Generally authors are in a hurry to close up the deal, tie up the loose ends and race towards HEA and I'm left thinking, what happened to the charred emotions and broken promises? You can't jump from discord to closure without addressing the issues in between.

description

“The past. It’s too heavy to forget.” 
And THAT'S WHERE DEVNEY EXCELS!! No free get out of jail passes for the characters. She makes them walk on broken glass, let's them bleed and forces us to watch- see this what happens when you hide and run away from problems.
I'm so enthused to have read such a mature writer who pays acute attention to ALL THE TINY DETAILS of her story. My sentiments were hanging by a thread throughout, I was anxious to find out how she'd resolve this crisis and what shall she make the characters go through to seek resolution
And who was sending the damned letters???? The ones that started it all! 
Unsaid words, unspoken agony, unleashed anger....all came crashing down on them like a tsunami and washed the past and present away.
I'm so excited now that I want to jump in The Birthday List, which my friends are highly recommending. I want more of Devney Perry
So hitch a ride on this amazingly beautiful wagon that is Dream Of Finn and Molly!
Climb On Up, Darling
