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.

Review: Monster Among the Roses by Linda Kage (Fairy Tale Quartet #1)

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
When an author decides to take on a classic fairy tale and make it their own, whether it by giving it a modern twist or adding their creative spin on it or both, I'm often curious to see what direction they'll take and whether it works out in the end or not. With the first novel in Linda Kage's Fairy Tale Quarter, she's taken on what I think is the favorite of many an author to tap for modernization--Beauty and the Beast, of which there are several different versions already, with French author Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve widely recognized as the original and Disney's animated and live action film adaptations possibly the most well-known. I've read several modern takes on this story, so I was curious when I heard Kage was starting her series off with it, and it was a good start at that.

So, did this have the same disfigured male main character and the fem…

Release Blitz: Privileged by Carrie Aarons

Privileged by Carrie Aarons Release Date: July 23, 2017
About Privileged In a world of wealth and power, the rules of love and war are nothing as they seem.
Nora Randolph never wanted a life of luxury. But when her mother falls in love with the heir to the British throne, their small-town lives are uprooted and every little girl’s fantasy becomes her reality.

But a tragic childhood loss redirects his course, and revenge has been boiling in his blood for years.

But as his plan for vengeance gets more twisted, so do his feelings for…

Review: Privileged by Carrie Aarons

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
Privileged is the sixth Carrie Aarons novel that I've read and I swear, the woman can do no wrong. This is a mature young adult (YA) read that's mostly set in London and it's the story of eighteen-year-old Nora Randolph, who wants nothing more than to continue leading her ordinary life back home in Pennsylvania. But with her mother's engagement to a member of British royalty--and not just any regular member of the peerage either but third in line to the throne--Nora's life is about to change in ways she could never have imagined. Starting her final year at Winston Academy before going off to college has surrounded her with children of privilege, but it's one particular student who makes it clear that he doesn't think Nora belongs--Asher Frederick. He may have planned to keep his eye on the American girl, especially after knowing who her soon-to-be stepfat…
