Release Blitz: Ripple Effect by Keri Lake

Ripple Effect by Keri Lake Release Date: July 25, 2017
About Ripple Effect Ripley They call me RIP.  I’m a killer. A murderer. A psychopath.  In the eyes of the righteous, I’m a monster, born of sin and depravity. I want to protect her, but I’m not a good man. I want to love her, but I no longer feel. She gets under my skin, though, and has awakened something inside of me. Something I’d kill for. I’m not her savior—not even close. In fact, I’m worse than the hell she’s already suffered. I’m her vengeance. Tit for tat, as they say. And if she’s not careful, I’ll be her ruin.
Dylan For months, I’ve watched him. I’ve fantasized him as my savior, my lover. My ticket out of the hell I’ve lived in for the last six years. I never dreamed he’d be my nightmare. Had I known what he really is, I’d have never gotten in the car that night, but life is full of cause and effect. And sometimes the choice on offer isn’t a choice at all. It’s the result of something already in motion, and we’re merely left …

Review: Ripple Effect by Keri Lake

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

A fine mist coats my vision as I stare down at the vestiges of my past. I can’t do this to Dylan. I can’t put her in danger. Somewhere along the lines, she’s come to mean more to me than I care to admit. In some ways, my lifeline. She’s the tranquility to the raging storm inside of me, and I’ll suffer a brutal death before I let another man touch her.To save my beautiful butterfly, I have to set her free.
Originally released as a four-episode serial, Ripple Effect is a romantic suspense novel penned by Keri Lake, an author who has shown she more than knows her way around the genre. I was able to read the four episodes, which tested my nearly non-existent patience since there was a wait between each one, and yes, because this was a serial before, the first three parts ended in cliffhangers. Was the wait worth it? Was it ever, because Lake brings together two of the most unforgettable…

About #MomFail Being a mom is some tough $#!†. You're constantly wearing questionable substances that make you ask, "is this chocolate or ... oh, crap ..." and your purse is merely a receptacle for three-week-old snacks and broken crayons.
Let's be honest ... even when we're doing this “mom” thing right, we're somehow doing it completely wrong.
Pardon us while we dust off our collective Mother of the Year trophy and proudly present you with an epic anthology of #MOMFAILS.

Book Spotlight: Get a Grip by L.A. Witt

Get a Grip (Bluewater Bay #19) by L.A. Witt Release Date: July 24, 2017 Riptide Publishing
About Get a Grip If a tree falls in Bluewater Bay . . . could it be fate?
A year after his divorce, Shane Andrews isn’t interested in dating—not that he has time, between three kids and a demanding job as a grip. When a windstorm knocks a tree onto one of the Wolf’s Landing soundstages, Shane’s there to help with the mess . . . and so is firefighter Aaron Tucker.
A former smoke jumper, Aaron’s an adrenaline junkie and way too restless and reckless to be relationship material. As far as he’s concerned, monogamy is for penguins, and he’d rather be alone than tied down. Signing up to be a stepparent? No, thank you.
But after a scorching-hot night together, they’re hooked. Aaron is a taste of the excitement Shane’s been lacking, and Shane’s pushing buttons Aaron didn’t know he had. The more they’re together, the less Aaron craves wild nights with other men . . . but the more Shane wants to play the field …

Release Blast: Monster Among the Roses by Linda Kage

Monster Among the Roses (Fairy Tale Quartet #1) by Linda Kage Release Date: July 25, 2017
About Monster Among the Roses “Do you know how to get to the rose garden?” “No, you can’t go there. A monster lives there.”
Shaw Hollander is desperate.
Broke, unemployed, and determined to help his ailing mother, he falls on the good graces of a wealthy benefactor who is willing to give Shaw a job at his mansion in order to pay off his mother’s debts. Suddenly finding himself surrounded by lavish riches, he has no idea what his duties truly entail until he’s sent to the rose garden and meets the tragically mutilated Isobel.
This Beauty and the Beast story holds true to the core of the fable while shaking off the element of fantasy and dragging it into present day reality. Shaw and Isobel are ready to let you climb into their four-wheel-drive pickup and take a ride with them into their version of happily ever after, but only if you first dare to gaze upon the monster among the roses.
