Book Spotlight: Separated by Jessica Frances

(In Midsummer #2) by Jessica Frances Date Released: July 6, 2020
About Separated One jealous sheriff. One pushy Hollywood hunk. One threat. One undeniable attraction. One messy situation. One chance to fix it.
I’ve guarded my heart the same way that I’ve guarded my hometown of Midsummer—with unwavering compromise and integrity. I’ve never even once been tempted to let my guard down. That is … until I met Conner Sherwood.

It didn’t matter that I swore off all romantic relationships. Or that I wasn’t interested in opening myself up and likely getting hurt. Like a moth to the flame, I can’t resist him. I can’t stop myself from wanting something I shouldn’t. Even pushing him away didn’t stop me from wanting him. Unfortunately, I’m not the only one who wants Conner. He has caught the eye of a Hollywood heartthrob. How can I compete with that?

But when Conner starts to receive death threats and an attempt is made on his life, I begin to realize that there is more at stake here than hav…

Review: Separated by Jessica Frances (In Midsummer #2)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Enticing Journey Book Promotions.
I have been itching to read this book ever since I finished the In Midsummer series starter, Stranded, and I couldn't have asked for anything better than what Jessica Frances served up in Separated. The books MUST be read in order, so if you've yet to read book one, this is where I caution you about proceeding with reading this review. I may inadvertently mention something that may most likely turn out to be spoiler-like. Consider yourself warned! However, if you don't mind taking that aforementioned risk, I'd gladly invite you to continue reading, with a not-so-thinly-veiled hint that you get a move on and read these books already because they're fab!

Separated picks up pretty much where Stranded left off. Whatever Conner Sherwood and Rocky Green had going has come to an end, and while the latter has his regrets, the former may have already moved on, what with the a…

Release Blitz: Love Disregarded by Rachel Blaufeld

Love Disregarded by Rachel Blaufeld Release Date: July 8, 2020
About Love Disregarded When I first met Aston Prescott, I thought I’d be able to let go of him.
I was naive.
He belonged to the country club where I worked, and despite the vast difference in our social status, I still fell for him. I thought he fell for me too, and that our love would overcome any obstacles.
But our relationship was discounted by everyone around us. Our families didn’t support us, and our friends avoided us.
So we moved on with our lives, but then everything fell apart.
The man who once abandoned me is now seeking comfort in my arms, and this time, I’m not sure if I can give in.
Because if I do, I may never be able to let him go again.

Release Blast: Southern Sunrise by Natasha Madison

Southern Sunrise (Southern #4) by Natasha Madison Release Date: July 7, 2020
About Southern Sunrise Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.
I fell in love with him when I was fourteen.

Under the stars, he told me he loved me, and under the stars we promised to love each other always.

But under the stars, he broke my heart by walking away.

He left me without a second glance. I was just an afterthought.

Now he's back, but this time, I'm not falling for his Southern charm.


It’s time I get my happily ever after, even if part of me wishes he was still mine.

I found out on my twenty-first birthday that everything I thought I knew was a lie, and the man I had grown up thinking was my father wasn't.

The pain I felt blinded me, making it impossible to hear what anyone said.

I left them all behind, including her, my best friend and the woman I was going to marry.

Five years later, I'm back, only to find the woman I still love has another man's ring on her …

Review: Southern Sunrise by Natasha Madison (Southern #4)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Wildfire Marketing Solutions.
Waiting for this book to land in my hands was almost torturous given the cliffhanger that readers were left with in the third Southern book, Southern Storm, and Natasha Madison has repaid that patience (okay, the wait wasn't overly long, but waiting a day feels long for someone like me, so...) with a beautiful story about second chances, forgiveness, and the true meaning of family and home. I'm talking tears, though for the record, I'm somewhat of a crybaby, so while there were certainly some heartrending moments that led me to shedding tears, not everyone's as sappy as me.

Southern Sunrise is the fourth novel in the series, and it's the story of Ethan McInytre, son of Jacob McIntyre (Southern Chance, book one in the Southern series) and Savannah Harrison (Southern Storm, book three in the Southern series). Now, if you've yet to read the previous books in the series,…

Breaking News
(Prime Time #2) by Ella Frank Release Date: July 27, 2020
Cover Design: By Hang Le

About Breaking News Xander Sean Bailey, the older brother of my lifelong best friend, has always been a surly, temperamental pain in my ass. But sometime during the last few weeks, I’ve gone and fallen head over heels for him.

Gruff and charming, charismatic in his own way, I’ve found myself looking past my preconceptions and discovered a whole new side to Detective Dick—a side I could fall in love with.

But life isn’t always easy—it can change course in the blink of an eye. Sometimes for the good and sometimes for the bad. I know this because last night I experienced both sides.

I went to Sean for help in guarding my body; what I didn’t expect was for him to steal my heart.

Breaking News is the continuation of Xander and Sean’s story and should only be read after book one, Inside Affair.
