Book Spotlight: Sweet Chaos by Emery Rose

Sweet Chaos (Love & Chaos #2) by Emery Rose Date Released: April 3, 2020
About Sweet Chaos Dylan St. Clair is chaos. And chaos always leaves a trail of destruction in its wake. I just never expected it to be my heart he destroyed.
I’ve had a crush on Dylan St. Clair ever since he climbed into my bedroom window ten years ago.
Wrong window, Romeo.
I was eleven, he was seventeen.
A bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks with a chip on his shoulder and fresh bruises from his latest fight, he went on to play the starring role in all my teenage fantasies.
But I always knew he was off-limits. So, over the years I gave up wishing and hoping we could ever be together.
Until he kissed me on a cold beach one starry winter’s night.
Until he said those five words that changed everything.
I picked the wrong sister.

Review: Sweet Chaos by Emery Rose (Love & Chaos #2)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Wildfire Marketing Solutions.
“What are we doing? What are we, Dylan? You say it’s not just sex, you say we’re not just friends, so what are we?”He sighed in exasperation and carved his hand through his hair. “You wanna slap a label on it?”“No. I want an answer.”“I don’t know what we are. But I know that I want you. And I don’t want anyone else to have you.”
My introduction to Emery Rose was by way of Wilder Love, the first book in her Love & Chaos series, and I was floored by the story she had to tell and the way she told it. By the time I was done reading that book, I knew two things for sure: I was going to be adding all of Rose’s previous releases to my to-be-read list, and I seriously needed to get my hands on Dylan St. Claire’s story next. Well, thank goodness I already had said book ready and waiting for me, and goodness, but it was even better than I could have imagined! Consider me the newest member of this…

Book Spotlight: Charmer by Kayley Loring

Charmer by Kayley Loring Date Released: April 2, 2020March 25, 2020 (early release)
About Charmer Nico
She serves me coffee late at night when I come around to write lyrics, but it’s not the caffeine I’ve gotten addicted to.

We’ve got the spark, but she’s the only woman in town who seems to be immune to my charms.

When it’s time for me to leave for my cross-country tour, I just can’t imagine not seeing her for months.

So I offer her a job on the road with me.

Everyone in LA knows that Nico Todd has a way with songs and with the ladies.

What he doesn’t know is that I would love to let him have his way with me.

But my life can only revolve around one infuriatingly cute guy—the six-year-old that I live with.

Imagine my surprise when Nico finds out about my little boy and tells me to bring him and my mom on the road too.

And imagine Nico’s surprise when he realizes my son is the biggest charmer of them all.

Review: Charmer by Kayley Loring

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Wildfire Marketing Solutions.
That’s when I knew for certain.
Everyone else had it wrong.
This woman is going to break my heart, and I’m going to let her.

I’d been itching for this book ever since Nico Todd made his presence known in Sleeper, and consider me absolutely charmed by him and the story he shares with a sassy single mother, her precocious son, and her no-nonsense mom. Charmer was exactly that—a charmer of a romantic comedy, and I was smitten with Nico from the first page onwards, and he had himself the perfect partner in Katherine Dempsey. This is a companion novel to Kayley Loring’s previous release Sleeper, but both novels can absolutely be read as standalones. However, because they’re equally awesome reads, I’m going to highly recommend that you check both books out, especially if you have a thing for single parent and slash or celebrity rom-coms.

At twenty-nine, Nico Todd has had the sort of career path tha…

Book Spotlight: Music from Another World by Robin Talley

Music from Another World by Robin Talley Date Released: March 31, 2020 Inkyard Press
About Music from Another World It’s summer 1977 and closeted lesbian Tammy Larson can’t be herself anywhere. Not at her strict Christian high school, not at her conservative Orange County church and certainly not at home, where her ultra-religious aunt relentlessly organizes anti-gay political campaigns. Tammy’s only outlet is writing secret letters in her diary to gay civil rights activist Harvey Milk…until she’s matched with a real-life pen pal who changes everything.
Sharon Hawkins bonds with Tammy over punk music and carefully shared secrets, and soon their letters become the one place she can be honest. The rest of her life in San Francisco is full of lies. The kind she tells for others—like helping her gay brother hide the truth from their mom—and the kind she tells herself. But as anti-gay fervor in America reaches a frightening new pitch, Sharon and Tammy must rely on their long-distance friendshi…

Book Spotlight: Jack Kerouac is Dead to Me by Gae Polisner

Jack Kerouac is Dead to Me by Gae Polisner Release Date: April 4, 2020 Wednesday Books
About Jack Kerouac is Dead to Me Fifteen-year-old JL Markham’s life used to be filled with carnival nights and hot summer days spent giggling with her forever best friend Aubrey about their families and boys. Together, they were unstoppable. But they aren’t the friends they once were.
With JL’s father gone on long term business, and her mother struggling with her mental illness, JL takes solace in the tropical butterflies she raises, and in her new, older boyfriend, Max Gordon. Max may be rough on the outside, but he has the soul of a poet (something Aubrey will never understand). Only, Max is about to graduate, and he's going to hit the road—with or without JL.
JL can't bear being left behind again. But what if devoting herself to Max not only means betraying her parents, but permanently losing the love of her best friend? What becomes of loyalty, when no one is loyal to you?
Gae Polisner’s Jack…
