Review: Tate by Ella Frank (Temptation #5)

Image
Note: This ARC was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
“Never think for one second I have ever thought anything other than the world of you. Because it wouldn’t be true.”Tate’s throat choked up at the sincerity of those words, and then he reached for Logan and kissed him hard. “I feel exactly the same way about you.”“You better,” Logan said against his mouth.“I do.”
If you thought you knew where this fifth and latest Temptation novel was going to go, especially after Logan gave us all a glimpse of where his thoughts where headed, well, buckle up, my fellow L&T lovers and bookaholics, because Ella Frank takes us on one hell of an emotional roller coaster ride. In writing this review, I'm going to assume that you've already read the first four novels--Try, Take, Trust, and Tease--and if you haven't, might I suggest that you get right on that. I learned my lesson after devouring the first three books in one sitting, all in anticipation for the fourth o…

About Still I'll be there. Through thick and thin. Ride or die. You can count on me.
The promises people make. The vows we take.  Assumptions of the heart.

Emotion tells us how we feel, but life...life has a way of plunging us in boiling water, burning away our illusions, testing our faith, trying our convictions.  Love floating is a butterfly, but love tested is an anchor.
For Grip and Bristol, Love started at the top of the world On a Ferris wheel under the stars But when that love is tested, will they fly or fall?

Book Spotlight: Professed by Nicola Rendell

Professed by Nicola Rendell Date Released: August 1, 2016
About Professed At a secret masked ball at Yale, Naomi Costa is literally swept off her stiletto-blistered feet by a man with a killer jawline, a perfect body, and an even-better kiss. They bust out of an emergency exit and have axis-shaking sex. He pours whiskey in her belly button and after they run out of condoms, they have to get creative. That kind of sex.
The next day, she learns that he is none other than Dr. Benjamin Beck, a brand new member of the Yale faculty and the hottest thing to happen to academia since… well, ever. She has to take his damned junior seminar to graduate, but it gets worse. He’s also her College Master: her boss, her advisor, her everything. And he’s just moved in, right downstairs.
They can’t stay away from each other. They're either fusion or fission or both. They’re making out in libraries, hiding notes between stones, and sneaking off to nautically themed AirBnbs. Hear that sound? It’s the aca…

Review: Professed by Nicola Rendell

Image
Everybody loves a freebie, and when it's a freebie in the form of an eBook written by one of my go-to authors? Yes, please! Though if we're being totally honest here, it was more of "Gimme, gimme, gimme! NOW!!!" Cough. Anyway, Professed was Nicola Rendell's debut release in 2016, and since I had yet to read her first two releases--the second one being Confessed, which was a follow-up to Professed but can be read as a standalone--I would have been absolutely nuts to have said "no" to getting my hands on that first book for free since Rendell has made it available as such on major e-retailers. So, if you haven't gotten around to reading it, grab it now. On to the review!

Professed is a teacher-student romance set in Yale University that has twenty-year-old college junior Naomi Costa and Dr. Benjamin Beck, thirty-eight-year-old professor and the new master of the residential college that Naomi belongs to. When Naomi and Ben meet, it's at a modern-d…

Release Blitz: Whiskey Burning by Bella Jewel

Whiskey Burning (Iron Fury MC #1) by Bella Jewel Release Date: September 25, 2017
About Whiskey Burning In the darkness is where I first met him. Alone at a water fountain, tears rolling down my cheeks. Ready to give up.

From the shadows, his voice came to me. Soothing. Comforting. Rough as the blackest night. I didn’t see him. I didn’t even know his name. All I knew was he saved me that night.

He put my back on my feet. And he kept me on them. Every single time I needed him, he found a way to come to me. My stranger of the night. My dark warrior.

My name is Scarlett. You probably know me. I’m America’s number one country music star. I’m also the loneliest girl you’ll ever meet.

He’s as free as a bird. A nomad. Travelling alone. Nobody to hold him back. He holds the freedom I pray for every single day. He shows me that life can be so much more than what I’m living.

When danger comes knocking, he’ll also show me a different world. A world I never knew existed. A world that both terrifies a…

Excerpt Reveal: Show Me the Way by A.L. Jackson

Show Me the Way (Fight for Me #1) by A.L. Jackson Release Date: October 2, 2017

An Excerpt from Show Me the Way Tension roiled between us. That tether pulled taut. Drawing us closer. I swallowed around it and reached for the latch. He was quick to open his door, jumping out and rounding to my side before I had time to step out of his massive truck. He helped me down, and his hand scorched where he aided me by holding on to my elbow.
“Let me walk you to the door. Last thing I need to be worried about is you here by yourself and some asshole taking advantage of you.”
He quirked this belly-flopping grin that pierced me like an arrow. “Unless of course that asshole is me.”
He barely angled his head to the side. There was something so endearing and self-deprecating about it. Everything about him right then was at odds with the surly, bear of a man I’d met weeks ago, the man exposing himself, layer by layer.
I lifted my chin, both in strength and vulnerability, tossing all the uncertainties and…
