Review: If Not for Love by Rebecca Jenshak

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via L. Woods PR.
If Not for Love may be my third Rebecca Jenshak read, but it's the first one that falls outside of her Smart Jocks series. Told in dual perspectives, this is the story of Brecken Blackstone and January Lyle (bonus points for her first name, which is a personal favorite of mine). Brecken was a man who had the world at his feet and wanted for nothing. After all, he's achieved success, has no problem when it comes to women, and has more money than he knows what to do with. But then he meets January, a woman who's left behind all the trappings her life once had in order make it on her own. She's struggling to make ends meet, and she desperately needs a job. Brecken is drawn to her and makes her an offer she can't refuse. Maybe it was their circumstances that had their paths crossing, or maybe it was fate that led them into each other's lives, but will it be love that'll keep them tog…

Review: Falling for the Beast by Skye Warren (A Modern Fairy Tale #2)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions.
Falling for the Beast is the second novel in the Modern Fairy Tale series, and it concludes the story of Erin Rodriguez and Blake Morris. As mentioned by Skye Warren in the blurb for both books in the series, these were originally released as a five-part novella-type series entitled Beauty several years ago. Book one, Beauty and the Professor, basically has the original three parts, and book two has the original final two parts (Beauty Becomes You and Loving the Beast). These have been reworked a bit and the series has been tied in to the author's Tanglewood universe. The two re-edited novels must been read in order because they are directly connected to one another.

As much as Erin Rodriguez and Blake Morris love each other, there are obstacles in their way to a happily-ever-after. Blake would love nothing more than to claim her for all the world to know that Erin belongs to him and he bel…

Running on Empty (Havoc #3) by SE Jakes Date Released: April 29, 2019 Riptide Publishing
About Running on Empty After years of running wild, Linc might’ve finally run out of road.

After a brutal capture at the hands of the Heathens Motorcycle Club, Linc is just trying to heal, mentally and physically. But he’s got men in his life who are complicating everything.

Release Blitz: International Player by Louise Bay

International Player by Louise Bay Release Date: April 30, 2019
About International Player Being labelled a player never stopped me from being successful with women. Until I met Truly Harbury.
Truly was the first girl who ever turned me down.
The first female friend I ever had.
And she might just be the first woman I ever fall in love with.
When an emergency means she needs my help running her family’s charity, I’m happy to introduce her to the glitz and glamour of the London business world—taking her to dinners, coaching her through speeches, zipping up the sexy evening gown I helped her pick out.
The more time we spend together, the more I want to convince her I’m not a man to avoid, that we’re not as unsuited as she believes.
She sees herself as the book-reading, science-loving introvert while I’m the dangerous, outgoing, charmer.
She thinks I love parties and people whereas she prefers pajamas and a takeaway.
What she doesn’t realize is that I like everything about her–the way her sm…
