RELEASE DAY – Breaking Clear by MJ Summers

HIP HIP HOORAY!!! It’s release day for one of my favorites – MJ Summers! MJ enthralled me with the first book in this series – Break In Two, after which I also fell in love with Breaking Love.  Now, we meet into two other lovely characters in Breaking Clear…

Breaking Clear coverClever. Steamy. Inspiring.

You fell in love with Harper Young as Megan Sullivan’s fiercely loyal, feisty best-friend in Breaking Love. As a talented art director at Style Magazine in Manhattan, she lives a life of glamour, managing to put a safe distance between herself and her painful past. One spring day, she answers a call that will change everything. Her father has had an accident and needs Harper to go home to Boulder, Colorado to care for him. Given an ultimatum by her boss, she chooses family, leaving her career behind. She drives across the country to find that the only man to make her heart ache with desire will be her new neighbour. Now, living in a city with a past that haunts her, she finds herself falling for Evan Donovan, a hot-as-hell contractor and her big brother’s best friend.

When Evan Donovan isn’t on a construction site, he is usually hanging from a cliff somewhere. He’s been dealt a rough hand when it comes to love and now believes in keeping things simple. His wife left him just as the recession forced him to shut down his home building company. Now after three years of strict perseverance, he is finally back on top again and he intends to stay there. But when Harper Young drops into his life, things are going to suddenly get complicated. He finds himself wondering why he never noticed her when they were teenagers. He resolves to stay away from his best friend’s little sister but the pull he feels to her is just too strong. Harper and Evan quickly find themselves in each other’s arms, trying to fool themselves into believing that they won’t fall in love.

Will Harper’s glamorous life come calling before she can overcome the humiliation of being in a town where everyone knows about her past? Will Evan overcome his inability to trust? The clock is ticking as these two perfect-for-each other people decide if they can make that final leap.

Lose yourself in Harper and Evan’s romantic journey as they fight for their forever.

Rhythm of my Heart by Velvet Reed

Front Cover-1“Oh my God! No way!”

Those where the words that flew out of my mouth upon finishing the last page in this book as I was frantically trying to get my kindle to flip another page…but to no avail. I’ll have to wait until September (WHAT?!?!) to hear the ‘rest of the story’. And what an amazing story this was…

Grace Rivers and Dr. Cole Tierney find themselves eye to eye in the ER following a mishap with Grace’s niece, Ruby. When the two shake hands and an electric spark passes between them, they find themselves wanting to know more about each other…

“Grace stands, gazing after her father and I can see the love and adoration gleaming in her eyes. This woman is breathtaking. My heart gives a quick squeeze and I know…in this instant, I know somehow, no matter what, I am going to make Grace mine.”

And make her mine he did…more than a few times…and it’s HOT!!! Cole is sexy as hell and Reed does an amazing job of developing his character throughout the book. In fact, Reed does an outstanding job developing the entire group of characters throughout this book. Each chapter is written in the perspective of a major character (think Jodi Picoult) which gives the book amazing depth and preps us for what is sure to be an amazing series of books (can there be like, 10 more please?!)

Grace is quick to defend her friends and family at any cost (take THAT Miranda!) and stops at nothing to ensure those she loves are well taken care of. She falls hard and fast for Cole (and so will you upon reading this book) and soon finds herself completely taken by him…

“Cole in jeans is sexy as hell; Cole in scrubs is mouthwatering. But, for the love of God…Cole in a tuxedo is a heart attack waiting to happen.”

But a good love story isn’t without ups and downs, twists and turns, cheerleaders and nay-sayers. This book has them ALL – and you will love and hate every last one of them. I adore the POV shifts throughout this book, reading the story from multiple views is one of my favorite things and Reed takes it beyond just the two main characters.

The greatest thing about this book is how it kept me guessing and engaged throughout. At the half way point I thought “wow, this is a cute love story, but how is there enough material for more?” Uh, there was.  A LOT more. This book is like a roller coaster ride, starts off nice, moves fast, takes sharp turns, whips your head back and finally plummets you to a dead stop. And just like a roller coaster – you WILL want MORE!

Coming soon….

In just a few short weeks (June 17 to be exact) Katy Regnery’s lastest novel “The Vixen & The Vet” will be released.  This is a very touching story about coming home and gaining the courage to live again.  What’s more, Katy is donating 50% of her profits from the book in June and July to Operation Mend ~ a groundbreaking program that provides returning military personnel with severe facial and other medical injuries access to the nation’s top plastic and reconstructive surgeons, as well as comprehensive medical and mental-health support for the wounded and their families.

Even though the cover has been revealed, I’m posting it here for your viewing pleasure (along with one of my favorite lines from the book, below).


“If this is hell, I need to review my definition of heaven. I’ve clearly been low-balling paradise.”

Look for my full review of this amazing novel within a few weeks.


Teaser Time!

ImageThere’s a great book coming out later this month – Various States of Undress: Carolina by Laura Simcox.  I was lucky enough to snag an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of this sexy story about the President’s daughter and her Secret Service Agent…and I cannot WAIT for you all to read it!!  I’ll be posting my official review as we get closer to release date (Hint – it’s a winner) but I thought I’d give you some tastes of this great story over the next few weeks leading up to the big release.

Teaser #1

Good girl, Jake thought.  Make that arrogant prick squirm.  Carolina was so calm.  Always composed, and very courteous.  Even if she forgot his name most of the time.  And even if she took photos of him when she thought he wasn’t looking.  He could feel a smile coming on and he rubbed his jaw, blocking it.

Like what you see?? (I know, it’s not much, but I can’t give away anything….yet!) You can pre-order a copy of this book for only $1.99!!!

Another book deal…

ImageJust a quick note!!!  One of my favorite books – and the inspiration for this blog (review below) – is ON SALE for a limited time!! 

When you go to Amazon to get your copy of “Mr. Good Enough” by Jamie Farrell, also pick up a copy of “Playing for Love at Deep Haven” by Katy Regnery which is on sale for $1.00.  For less than a cup of coffee you can get two amazing books by two amazing authors!!

You’re going to have such a great weekend ladies…especially with Trent and Zach to keep you company! 

P.S. Zach and Violet are SCOTCHING HOT…don’t say I didn’t warn you!!! {wink}

A cheap man…

ImageNow that I have your attention…FOR A LIMITED TIME you can snag the wonderful “Mr. Good Enough” by Jamie Farrell for only .99 cents via Amazon!  I was introduced to Jamie by Katy Regnery, and we all know how I feel about Katy, so I knew right off the bat I would enjoy Jamie’s work.

I have not done a proper review of Mr. Good Enough (shame on me!) so I’ll do a brief overview here.  This book is a great read full of sweet, funny, difficult and cringe-worthy moments.  It is the story of Maddie, who is doing her best to build a dating site while trying to get her own dating life in order and Trent, the high school basketball star returned from the dead.  The dead, you ask?  Am I serious?  Well, you’ll have to read the book to find out! {wink}

Trent and Maggie have history – mostly awkward, embarrassing history – and it’s quite fun to read about their reunion from both perspectives.  It’s not a fast read as Jamie is amazing with setting scenes, developing characters, writing about their history, and getting us really invested in every part of the story.  This is a perfect read if you have a rainy day inside or a car ride/flight ahead of you.

Trust me – you will not be disappointed in this read.  While it may have been a bit long for my taste, there was never a moment when I was bored (as has happened with other books).   And for .99 cents what do you have to lose?!  Give “Mr. Good Enough” a chance and I’ll think you’ll find it’s much better than “just good enough”.

Visit Jamie on the web, Facebook (her kid moments will make you LOL!) and Twitter.
