Renewal (Dublin Virtues #3) by Helena Stone Date Released: June 20, 2017 Pride Publishing
About Renewal When everything changes, can renewal bring redemption?
Shane Boyle left Dublin for America, burning most of his bridges, certain his future lay in Florida. When a family crisis forces him back to the city he grew up in, he knows his life will never be the same again. With his sister close to death, his mother and five-year-old nephew Danny need him not just to be around but also to be the rock they can depend on.

Now thirty-five years old, he wonders what happened to his dream of a lasting bond and a family to call his own.

Review: Renewal by Helena Stone (Dublin Virtues #3)

Note: This ARC was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
“I like looking at you,” Chris said. “You’re gorgeous like this, spread out in front of me, on display and waiting for me to give you what you need.”“You think you know what that is?” Shane asked with an uncertain note to his voice.Maybe better than you do. Chris didn’t say the words. There was no need for Shane to know that he could sometimes see the lost little boy in Shane’s eyes. Right from the start Chris had suspected Shane’s sometimes brutish exterior hid an uncertain man who hadn’t yet figured out exactly what his place in the world was. He cherished the opportunity he’d apparently been given to prove to Shane that here with Chris—in this bed and in his life—was exactly where he belonged.
The Dublin Virtues series started strong with Patience, followed up with an absolute winner in Equality, and finishes with the same heart and heat I've come to expect from Helena Stone in Renewal. Stone was a co…

Cultivating Love by Addison Albright Release Date: June 24, 2017 JMS Books
About Cultivating Love A man of few words, Joe is a hard-working farmhand who likes his simple, uncomplicated life. Ed is satisfied with his existence as an auto mechanic, but thrilled when an unexpected development in his life allows him to help Joe realize a dream.
It forces them, however, to reevaluate the casual, undefined nature of their relationship. They’re too macho to speak of love, and neither would acknowledge he doesn’t really mind when it’s his turn to bottom. When life throws them a curve ball, and the rules of their game get old, Ed tries to take every aspect of their relationship up a notch. Can Joe adapt to the open sentimentality Ed’s injecting into their relationship, let alone the new spice in their bedroom activities?
This is a previously published story that has been rewritten, expanded, and re-edited.

Release Blitz: The Knocked Up Plan by Lauren Blakely

The Knocked Up Plan by Lauren Blakely Release Date: June 23, 2017
About The Knocked Up Plan There are three little words most guys don't want to hear on the first date. Not those...I mean these... "Knock me up."
This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it's not true love. It's a bun in the oven, and I'm not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick co-worker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty and charming — and he's also a notorious commitment-phobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me.
I won't fall for him, he won't fall for me, and there's no way baby will make three. 
Right?
*  *  *
There are four words every guy wants to hear on the first date — "Your place or mine?"
When my hot-as-sin co-worker makes me a no-strings-attached offer that involves her place, my place, any place —as well as any position — I can't refuse. Besides, I've …

Review: The Knocked Up Plan by Lauren Blakely

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review.
“Hey, you.”“Hey, you,” I say.“Thank you.”“For what?”“For taking care of me tonight.”“It’s the only place I wanted to be.”
Lauren Blakely knocked it out of the ball park with her latest romantic comedy effort, The Knocked Up Plan, which was originally titled The Wild One before it was published and was part of The One series. I'm now considering it a spin-off of the aforementioned series, but whether it's a standalone or part of a collection of loosely connected books, this story of two friends and co-workers who come to an agreement--one that involves getting pregnant with no strings attached. But you know how these things turn out, right? Well, prepare to be surprised, because while the ending is guaranteed to be a happy one, Lauren Blakely is an author who has never failed to give even the most used and abused of tropes a refreshing twist and creative touch, thereby making it her pro…

About Salvaged Hudson Wheeler is a nice guy. Everyone knows it, including his fiancĂ©e who left him with a canceled wedding and a baby on the way. He’s tired of finishing last and is ready to start living in the moment with nights soaked in whiskey, fast cars, and even faster girls. He’s set to start living on the edge, but when he meets Poppy Cruz, her sad eyes in the most gorgeous face he’s ever seen hook him in right away. Wheeler can see Poppy’s pain and all he wants to do is take care of her and make her smile, whatever it takes. 
Poppy can’t remember a time when she didn’t see strangers as the enemy. After a lifetime of being hurt from the men who swore to protect her, Poppy’s determined to keep herself safe by keeping everyone else at arm’s length. Wheeler’s sexy grin and rough hands from hours restoring classic cars shouldn’t captivate her, but every time she’s with him, she can’t help being p…
