Release Day: Mister Romance by Leisa Rayven

Mister Romance (Masters of Love #1) by Leisa Rayven Release Date: April 30, 2017
About Mister Romance Max Riley is the man of your dreams. Or at least he will be, for a price. 
As his alter-ego Mister Romance, Max is a drop-dead gorgeous escort who makes romantic fantasies come to life. No sex, just swoon-worthy dates to die for, and the cream of New York's socialites can't get enough.  Whether they want a dominating billionaire, bad boy with a heart of gold, hot geek, sexy biker, or best friend who loves them from afar, Max can make it all happen, but he's careful to keep his real identity a secret. 
Enter investigative journalist Eden Tate. Having caught wind of the urban legend of Mister Romance from a lovestruck client, Eden is determined to publish a scathing expose on Max and his ability to swindle lonely society women out of their fortunes. 
Desperate to protect his anonymity and his clients, Max challenges Eden to give him three dates. If she doesn't fall in love wi…

Review: Mister Romance by Leisa Rayven (Masters of Love #1)

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Nina Bocci PR in exchange for an honest review.

“How do you not know by now that I love you more than I thought I could love anyone? It’s sad and pathetic and wrong how much I love you, and most days I’m so desperate to see you and touch you, I want to punch myself in the face.”
Whoa my God. I am so revoltingly in love with Leisa Rayven's writing! I've been a fan from the moment I met Cassie Taylor and Ethan Holt in her debut smash hit, Bad Romeo, which was the series starter of Starcrossed, back in 2014. With Mister Romance, she not only starts off her new series, Masters of Love, with a kiss and a bang, she's reiterated why so many fans and readers have added her to their list of go-to authors. Her latest fictional endeavor is every bit the romantic comedic masterpiece I was both expecting and hoping it would be, but she also managed to surpass those hopes and expectations by keeping it cliffhanger-free (yay!) and making me al…

Release Blitz: Riot Street by Tyler King

Riot Street by Tyler King Release Date: April 30, 2017 Forever
About Riot Street Sometimes, getting in too deep is the only way to survive…
As darkly charismatic as he is unpredictable, Ethan Ash knows me better than I know myself. He’s spent years unraveling the family scandal I’ve tried desperately to escape. I once thought that made us adversaries. Now he’s the closest ally I have left.  
Ethan’s both the chaos around me and the deep, calm center where I feel safe. People warn me about him, tell me he’s dangerous. Don’t fall for him. But it’s too late. Because I can’t tell where my addiction ends…and his obsession begins.

An Excerpt from Riot Street “You awake?” Ethan shifts next to me in bed beneath the blankets. “Something wrong?” “I’m fine. Go back to sleep.”
He rolls to his side, wrapping his arm around my waist. “Talk to me.”
“Really, it’s nothing. I…

Review: Riot Street by Tyler King

“This whole time,” I tell him, hugging my chest against the cold, “I’ve been waiting for that day I wake up and I’ve almost forgotten to miss you, but it doesn’t come. No matter how hard I pretend it will.”
When an author amazes you with their debut release, the stakes are even higher when it comes to their sophomore effort. Tyler King more than impressed me with The Debt, and while reading and reviewing her second novel was a no-brainer, my expectations were astronomically high. So, did Riot Street live up to said expectations? Why, yes. Yes, it did, and in a way that has me already antsy for more from this clearly gifted storyteller. This was the tale of two people who were connected to each other even before they actually met face to face. Their romance has layers upon layers of complexities, which made it far more interesting than your run-of-the-mill tropes that can ea…

Release Blitz: Live Out Loud by Marie Meyer

Live Out Loud by Marie Meyer Release Date: April 30, 2017 Forever
About Live Out Loud I thought I'd live in silence forever . . . and then I met him.
I'll never be able to hear, but music has always been a source of comfort for me. Rather than listen to the rhythm, I can actually feel the beat pulsing through me. It's pure bliss. So the moment I saw Thorin playing his guitar, I was mesmerized. I'd never seen anything more beautiful . . . or intimate. I couldn't tell where his body ended and the song began. He's everything I need in my life . . . I'm falling fast, hard, and deep.
I want him more than anything. But while I live in silence, Thor lives in secrets. He's holding something back—something that's keeping this intensity, this longing from being real. And the silence may be too loud to bear . . .

Review: Live Out Loud by Marie Meyer

Note: This ARC was provided by Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
After reading Live Out Loud, I couldn't help but wonder to myself why the hell I hadn't read anything of Marie Meyer's prior to this latest release of hers. Yes, I was quite impressed, and no, this won't be my first and last Meyer read. Also, I hope this spawns a couple of spin-offs for two supporting characters or maybe it's the beginning of a series, but I'll get to that later in my review. I've read more than my fair share of rock star romances before, and I've even read a couple involving one of the main characters being hearing impaired, but I loved how the author gave her protagonists, twenty-four-year-old car mechanic slash rock star in the making Thorin Kline and twenty-six-year-old pharmacology graduate student and YMCA volunteer Harper King, such personality and individuality, that it was a struggle not to fall in love with either …

Release Blitz: Aces Wild by Emmy Curtis

Aces Wild (Elite Ops #1) by Emmy Curtis Release Date: April 30, 2017 Forever
About Aces Wild In the heat of the Nevada desert, the most elite military pilots in the world are about to engage in some friendly competition. Only this year, someone is changing all the rules...
RAF pilot Dexter Stone has been through his fair share of sticky situations. After living through a crash in enemy territory where no one expected him to walk away, the Red Flag training exercises should be a piece of cake-assuming he can keep his mind on the mission and not on the smart mouth of his gorgeous American competition.
As one of the few women in a sky full of hotshot flyboys, Maj. Eleanor Daniels has worked day and night to earn a coveted spot at Red Flag. And she's not about to let some cocky British bad boy distract her from winning. But when the games take a deadly turn, he may be her only hope for survival.

Known for her Alpha Ops series, Emmy Curtis starts off her brand new series, Elite Ops, with Aces Wild, which is set in Las Vegas as top pilots for various air forces of different countries convene to go through the Red Flag training, composed of exercises that will push the capabilities of every single participant and confirm whether they remain at the top of their game or not. Still dealing with memories of his epic crash in Iraq, the Royal Air Force's top airman, Dexter "Ironman" Stone, needs to be more focused than ever if he wants to prove that he's more than recovered from the crash. He has no room for distractions, even if they do happen to come in the very distracting indeed form of US Air Force pilot Eleanor "Bees" Daniels, who has a thing or two to prove during Red Flag as well. She may share the same last name as her general father an…

He also happens to be gay, but his sexuality isn't something that's up for public consumption, choosing to remain in the closet for the time being. The Rabbits's new announcer, though, may have Caleb reconsidering his options for the first time. 
Twenty-five-year-old Lucas Landry is excited to be an on-air talent for Rain Valley's radio station. But when he's asked to temporarily take over as the announcer for the town's baseball team, Lucas is at a …
