This Is Not a Love Story (Love Story #1) by Suki Fleet Date Released: May 22, 2014 Harmony Ink Press
About This Is Not a Love Story When fifteen-year-old Romeo's mother leaves one day and doesn't return, he finds himself homeless and trying to survive on the streets. Mute and terrified, his silence makes him vulnerable, and one night he is beaten by a gang of other kids, only to be rescued by a boy who pledges to take care of him.
Julian is barely two years older than Romeo. A runaway from an abusive home, he has had to make some difficult choices and sells himself on the street to survive. Taking care of Romeo changes him, gives him a purpose in life, gives him hope, and he tries to be strong and keep his troubles with drugs behind him. But living as they do is slowly destroying him, and he begins to doubt he can be strong enough.
This is the story of their struggle to find a way off the streets and stay together at all costs. But when events threaten to tear them apart, it is Rom…

Review: This Is Not a Love Story by Suki Fleet (Love Story #1)

Note: This ebook was provided by Harmony Ink Press in exchange for an honest review.


We're so close now; I feel such an incredible tender rush of desire to stop his tears with my lips, to feel the salty skin of his cheek beneath my tongue. I've come to realize it's possible to take away pain with such action, to show you love someone without saying a word.
Do not judge a book by its title! This Is Not a Love Story is really and truly a love story but it's also so much more than that. This is my third Suki Fleet read and while I was feeling iffy over my first read, both the second and now this third have me thoroughly impressed and craving for even more from the Love Story universe Fleet has created. We're introduced to fifteen-year-old Romeo Danilov, who found himself homeless after his mother failed to return to the home they were staying at. Left to fend for himself, he finds a small set of allies--people that he can turn to in the most desperate of circumstances.…

Release Blitz: Plight by K.M. Golland

Plight by K.M. Golland Release Date: May 29, 2017
About Plight Plight [plahyt] noun: a difficult, or otherwise unfortunate situation. verb: pledge or solemnly promise. Be engaged to be married.

I promised myself to a man. Well, technically, I promised myself to a boy. We were eight years old. Neighbours. He gave me a Cheezel, pushed it onto my finger, and asked me to marry him. 
I ate the Cheezel. 
I also said, “Yes” but that we’d have to wait until we were thirty.
It was my thirtieth birthday last week and now he’s calling in that promise. 
Seriously, Elliot Parker is insane if he thinks that an out of the blue private Facebook message stipulating the binding law of an oral contractual agreement is going to seal our twenty-two-year bullshit engagement. 
Insane.
I wonder if he really does look like his profile picture, though.

Review: Plight by K.M. Golland

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
This book was such a great way to end one week and start another, considering I made the decision to begin reading it late into Sunday night and finished just after midnight. K.M. Golland is a new-to-me author and she offers up lighthearted romantic comedy fare with Plight, the story of two childhood best friends who shared countless happy memories and one harrowing event only to drift apart after one of them moves one town away. Danielle Cunningham and Elliot Parker were eight when he asked her to marry him with a Cheezel as the engagement ring. She ate it right off her finger and promptly said "yes" but with one caveat: they'd have to wait until they were thirty. Fast forward twenty-two years, one Facebook private message, and one worthwhile joint project later. Their friendship appears to have been rekindled but Elliot takes the promise they made at eight one step …

Book Spotlight: Scarred by Chelsea Camaron & Ryan Michele

Scarred (Ruthless Rebels MC #3) by Chelsea Camaron & Ryan Michele Date Released: May 17, 2017
About Scarred Whitton ‘Skinny’ Thorne–scarred skin only covers a beautiful soul.
Bitter with a capital B.
Life has been hell from the beginning when Whitton was burned as an infant, yet as much as he pushes me away I’m always coming back for more.
When I finally let go, he wants to let me in, how do I survive when we’ve both been scarred?
Each book in the Ruthless Rebels MC is a new couple, but are best read in order. This is a biker book so please expect violence, foul language, and sexual situations. Do not buy if any of this offends you.

Review: Scarred by Chelsea Camaron & Ryan Michele (Ruthless Rebels #3)

Image
Note: This ARC was provided by the authors via Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
Scarred is the third and latest addition to the Ruthless Rebels series of stories brought to romance readers by the writing team of Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele. This is also the third novella that carries with it a second chance love story theme, but again, the circumstances that surround the couple here are different from those that came before them. At eight years old, Whitton Thorne and Roelyn Duprey were the best friends. They would fall in love, but on what was supposed to be the night that was a turning point point in their relationship, Whitton would up and leave Roe, choosing to be by his twin brother Waylon's side. It's been ten years, but circumstances have led Whitton and Waylon--now members of the Ruthless Rebels MC and known as Skinny and Triple Threat or TT--to make the journey from Alabama to their hometown of Blakely, Georgia. Those circumstance…

Review: Scorned by Chelsea Camaron & Ryan Michele (Ruthless Rebels MC #2)

Image
Note: This ebook was provided by the authors via Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
Scorned is the second novella in the Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele-co-written MC romance series entitled Ruthless Rebels MC and it turns the spotlight on Austin Fletcher, better known as Shamus in the Ruthless Rebels motorcycle club and best friend to Dixon James "DJ" Cartwright, whose own story with Kenderly Hanson was told in the series starter, Shamed. Shamus's story is also a second chance romance, one he shares with twenty-eight-year-old journalist Andrea Davies. These two may have harbored deeper feelings than they were able to admit a decade ago, but seeing each other now stirs feelings of hurt and animosity. When Drea upped and left Shamus behind, he believed it was due to her ambition and his not having any place in her future, not someone like him from the wrong side of the tracks. Drea's return is unexpected; Austin's need for her, howe…

Note: This ebook was provided by the authors via Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
Shamed is the first novella in the Ruthless Rebels MC series co-written by MC romance veterans and reader favorites Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele. It's a second chance love story between twenty-nine-year-old Dixon James Cartwright, now known as DJ and a patched member of the Ruthless Rebels motorcycle club, and twenty-seven-year-old Kenderly Marie Hanson, nicknamed Kenie by Dixon and working at a gas station. DJ and Kenderly had made plans for their future together, until DJ chose the club over the girl he loved. That was eight years ago. They may still live in the same town and DJ and his brothers may go pump gas at the station Kenderly works at, but the two avoid each other as much as possible. That is, until trouble came Kenderly's way and it's DJ that steps in to rescue her. Dixon wants another chance, but could Kenderly give it if she's never forgo…
