Review: Heels Over Head by Elyse Springer

Note: This ARC was provided by Riptide Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
If you’d told me a year ago that I was going to enjoy diving with Brandon, let alone become a national champion for men’s synchronized diving with him, I would have laughed in your face.Looking into his breathtaking eyes, another thought occurs:If you’d told me a year ago that I was going to fall in love with Brandon Evans, I would have thought you were crazy.Brandon smiles at me, and his joy is contagious.And yet, here we are.
This book was EVERYTHING! Gah! Heels Over Head, a standalone M/M sports romance from Elyse Springer, isn't exactly a quick read, clocking in at nearly 300 pages in total, but time flew by and before I knew it, three hours had passed and I had fallen completely in love with the story of aspiring Olympic diver Jeremy Reeve and gifted but far less serious diver Brandon Evans. You would think with all the Olympic-related books I've already read over the past few…

Book Spotlight: Equality by Helena Stone

Equality (Dublin Virtues #2) by Helena Stone Date Released: May 23, 2017 Pride Publishing
About Equality Love is love. But what if the fight for equality gets in the way of building a relationship?
Lorcan Barratt has never considered himself relationship material. After his parents made it perfectly clear they’d never welcome a partner of his into their home, he learned to love his own company and can’t imagine sharing his life with another. After a single passionate kiss with Eric Kavanagh—the night before he travels to Canada for three months—Lorcan’s no longer sure he wants to be on his own. The problem is, he has no idea what sharing his life with someone else might entail.
Eric Kavanagh grew up in a loving and supportive family and always assumed he’d end up in a committed relationship. Sure that he’s found the one, Eric doesn’t worry about the fact that Lorcan has no experience when it comes to love and relationships. They are good together, so what could possibly go wrong?
When both…

Review: Equality by Helena Stone (Dublin Virtues #2)

Image
Note: This ARC was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
“We’re not asking for special treatment. All we want is to be treated the same way as you. This vote isn’t about whether or not you understand or approve of homosexuality. It has nothing to do with raising and adopting children. All a Yes vote would ensure is that we will be a little bit less separate from the rest of society. We just want to be equal. Nothing is going to change for you. Your marriages will still be as good or as bad as they are right now—your weddings still as lavish or as simple as you want them to be. Voting Yes won’t cost you anything and will give so very much.”
Helena Stone started her Dublin Virtues strong with the story of artist Xander Ekman and tattooist Troy Moriarty in Patience, but with Equality, the second novel, she not only gives readers a romance between Xander's and Troy's respective best friends, but she also touches upon the fight for same sex marriage in Ireland.…

Release Blitz: Mine by Jenika Snow

Mine (A Real Man #13) by Jenika Snow Release Date: May 31, 2017
About Mine That one word has never meant so much.
JANA Ballet was my life, but after getting injured, that dream faded. I still needed fast money, so I sucked up my pride and decided to strip.
Clubs could use a virgin stripper, right?
But from the moment I saw Cole Savage, owner of the strip club I was trying to get in to, all rational thought left me. He was dark and dangerous, and his personality screamed arrogance.
I wanted him, and by the way he looked at me, I knew he wanted me as well.
But I should keep it strictly business. That’s what I told myself anyway.
COLE From the moment I first saw Jana, I wanted her. She needed a job at my club, but the possessive side of me rose up, demanding she was only mine. I might have just met her, but I was already so damn territorial of her.
If she wanted a job, I’d give her one, but she’d be keeping her clothes on.
I’d been celibate for years, but it was time to change that with her.
Ja…

Full Count (Westland University #1) by Lynn Stevens Release Date: June 19, 2017 Entangled Embrace

About Full Count Anyone who says they're having the worst day hasn't met me. My girlfriend cheated, I blew out my knee, and probably trashed my chance of going pro. All in one day. Then my jerk professor tells I'm almost on academic probation.
Awesome. Now I get to find a tutor.
Enter Mallory Fine, quiet, a little intense, and my kind of gorgeous. Who also happens to hate baseball and any guy who plays it.
Hello, curiosity.
I tell myself this will be nothing more than a tutoring relationship. I'm a liar. I want this girl. How hard can her secrets be to unravel? It might be a challenge, but so is getting back on the ball field and I'm determined to make that happen—no matter the cost.

Release Blitz: Black Tie Optional by Ann Marie Walker

Black Tie Optional (Wild Wedding #1) by Ann Marie Walker Release Date: May 30, 2017 SMP Swerve
About Black Tie Optional The Proposal meets Two Weeks Notice in Ann Marie Walker's new standalone romantic comedy, Black Tie Optional, which New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst calls, "a fun, sexy romp that will keep every reader entertained!"
Everything about billionaire Coleman Grant III oozes power and sex. And not the perfunctory kind either, but the sheet clawing, heart stopping, gasping for air after you’ve screamed so loud you can’t breathe kind. From his dark wavy hair that stands in an artfully rumpled mess, to the blue eyes that sear your skin, to his full, sensual lips—on the surface he’s pure perfection.
Too bad he's an asshole. An arrogant, uptight corporate raider hell bent on destroying the environment one species at a time. 
Everything about Olivia Ramsey screams hippie humanitarian. From her blond hair tied in a sloppy bun, to her faded jeans with …
