Review: The Real by Kate Stewart

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Wordsmith Publicity in exchange for an honest review.
“Cameron,” I said, unable to put into words what I was feeling. Instead, I buried my head in his shoulder. “Where in the hell have you been?”“Anywhere but where I needed to be,” he whispered softly.
Kate Stewart made me fall in love with her storytelling when I read Drive last year, my first from her. Her latest standalone, however, both floored me and had my heart soaring to the highest of heavens. The Real is very much the real deal and it already has a cushy spot on my year-end list of top favorites. From the unforgettable meet-cute to the unique direction the rest of the story took and from the wondrous main characters to a host of memorable supporting characters, this novel was every bit of contemporary romance perfection that I did not even realize I desperately needed. The fact that it also had lighthearted wit and humor sublimely interspersed with a dose of heartrending angst sim…

Review: Daniel by RJ Scott (Legacy Ranch #3)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Signal Boost Promotions.
It's been nearly a year since the release of the second book in the Legacy Ranch, but boy, did RJ Scott make the wait worth it because Daniel is the best one in this heartrending yet hopeful series about three young men who were the victims of very bad men when they were at an age where fighting back would have cost them their lives. When twenty-two-year-old Daniel Brown answers the knock on his door, he has no idea who the man before him is; and while twenty-five-year-old Corey Dryden has never met Daniel before, there are certain things he does know about the college senior, starting with his real name: Daniel Chandler. The last thing Daniel wants is to have everything he's worked so hard to keep buried unearthed, especially by this stranger who stirs a combination of emotions he'd rather not analyze too deeply. But maybe the time has come for Daniel to come to terms with his past…

Release Blitz: My Life as Rock Album by LJ Evans

My Life as a Rock Album (My Life as an Album #3) by LJ Evans Release Date: June 26, 2018
About My Life as a Rock Album "They took broken and made it art." 
SETH  I’m a trash artist.  I’m a recovering alcoholic. I’m a rude bastard.
It’s why I was better of alone until feisty blogger PJ Hensley entered my life with her fairy-like quality. Suddenly I couldn’t imagine a life without her in it. And when she loved me and left me, it was what I expected but it isn’t what I wanted.
And because I couldn’t just let her go, I’ve spent the last five months writing her letters trying to convince her to come home even though I know she won’t. I don’t deserve for her to come back.
PJ  I was ignoring my screwed up past and a bunch of stalker like texts while focusing on graduating college. The last thing I needed was a moody trash artist entering my world. But like all things Seth, he entered my life anyway with an intensity and focus that left me breathless. 
And when the summer collided into one…

Review: My Life as a Rock Album by LJ Evans (My Life as an Album #3)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Enticing Journey Book Promotions.
My Life as a Rock Album is the third installment in the My Life as an Album series from LJ Evans, and because I adored the first two novels, I've been excitedly awaiting to get my hands on this newest one. The story Evans tells here is more of a second-chance romance, one told from the third-person points of view of the main characters, artist Seth Carmen and blogger and college student PJ Hensley. When he first sees her during an art showing, he can't help but follow her, noting how much she looked like the girl he loved--the girl who left him. They don't get off to the best of starts, and he knows the impression he left on her had the opposite effect of the one she left on him. Once they got to know each other, they fell hard. However, as in love as these two were, the time came when PJ had to make a choice: to continue to be stifled by Seth's possessiveness or to brea…

Review: Blaze by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott (Unbreakable Bonds #5)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the authors via IndiGo Marketing & Design.
“Need isn't enough of a word for what I feel. Do you know, I wake every morning, remember where I am and who I love, and the joy that fills me is the brightest thing I've ever felt? That moment when I remember what I have—it's the best moment of my day.” He stopped, knowing his heart lay open and raw on his sleeve. “It's not all your damn money, or even the job I love. It's you.”
My introduction to Jocelyn Drake and Rinda Elliott's writing--whether as a duo or as individuals--was by way of Dant├Ęs Unglued, the first in the Ward Security series and the same book that got me hooked to both the rest of that ongoing series AND this writing partnership. The funny thing is that series is actually a spin-off of Drake and Elliott's Unbreakable Bonds series, which I had not read...until this week. Yep, all it took was the upcoming release of the fifth novel in the series…

Book Spotlight: Tattered by Devney Perry

Tattered (Lark Cove #1) by Devney Perry Date Released: June 19, 2018
About Tattered Thea Landry has always known her place in modern-day society. It’s somewhere just above the trash can her mother dumped her in as a newborn but below the class where much comes easy. With her tattered shoes and bargain-bin clothes, her life has never been full of glamour.
So when a rich and charismatic man takes interest, she doesn’t fool herself into thinking their encounter is anything more than a one-night stand. Months later, she’s kicking herself for not getting his phone number. Or his last name. She’s given up hope of seeing him ever again.
Until one day, years later, Logan Kendrick waltzes into her life once more and turns everything she’s built upside down. This time around, she won’t make the same mistake. She’s going to fight to keep him in her life—not for herself.
But for their daughter.
