Secrets & Seduction by SK Reign ~ Release Blitz w/ Review

Omegas are supposed to remain virgins until they’re mated off to a pack. Violet, however, has a secret baby that her parents forced her to give up for adoption.

Secrets & Seduction by SK Reign is now live!

As an omega, I was born with one purpose: to be bred by a pack.

The issue? My first heat hit early. Confused and afraid, I took a big risk to relieve the pain, but it broke all the rules and cost me a piece of myself.

Nobody wants a used omega, but if I don’t mate a pack, none of my sisters will be able to either.
So when a wealthy pack of strangers puts in an offer for me, my family is quick to send me packing, all the way to the land of the midnight sun. Alaska.

Archer, Miles, Noah, and Ben are everything that should make my heart flutter. They’re kind, attentive, and they worship me like a goddess.

My body is built for them, to crave their knots and give them offspring. They say they want to give me everything… but what if I have nothing left to give?

Get ready to meet the Steele sisters in the Bonds of Steele omegaverse series world. Each book is a standalone and can be read in any order. Secrets & Seduction features sweet, protective men, a shy, reluctant female lead, and smoldering-hot knotty times. Please read the author’s note for possible triggers.

I was under the impression that this was a shifter story from the blurb. It was not. I was a little disappointed. I have read numerous Alpha, Luna, Beta, etc. books and this one very different in comparison. Violet is being sent to a neighboring pack due to some sort of terrible thing her family claims she did. Eventually you find out what she did. She is sent to a pack with four alphas to live with.

Once she gets to them, there is no real interaction and I was unclear on the storyline. There are too many POV conversations and not enough action. I couldn’t feel the chemistry or deep connection to any of the alphas. For this type of genre, this story lacked all the parts of pack living. The chemical attraction. This book only touched lightly on these which was the reason I could not connect to any of them and the storyline.

Meet SK Reign

SK Reign believes in true love and great sex, strong women and irresistible heroes, gripping action and tender sweetness. Why choose one when you can have it all? Indulge in your wildest fantasies with this reverse harem romance that will leave you deliciously satisfied while also begging for more, more… more.

Boyfriend Material by Ilsa Madden-Mills ~ Blog Tour w/ Review & Excerpt!

Skyscraper cheekbones, lush lips, and magnetic topaz eyes.
I’m talking about Eric Hansen.

Boyfriend Material, an all-new enemies-to-lovers sports romance full of heat and chemistry from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills is available now!

#1 Amazon Bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills delivers an all-new, enemies-to-lovers sports romance, a breathtaking tale of passion, heartbreak, and love…

Skyscraper cheekbones, lush lips, and magnetic topaz eyes.

I’m talking about Eric Hansen.

Rich prick.

Glorified hockey star.

Thinks he’s amazing.

The Golden Boy and I are well acquainted. In prep school he trampled on my heart then kept right on going.

Now, he’s living the high life with frat parties and puck bunnies at Hawthorne University. On the other hand, people barely notice me—unless I’m on stage taking my clothes off. I’m the nobody, surviving in the seedy part of town as I fight to keep my head above treacherous waters.

I’ve snubbed him for three years.

The avoidance game we’ve been playing was working—until he rescues me from a bad guy and claims he wants to help me more.

Hello. I don’t need a knight in shining armor. This girl saves herself.

Yet, I’m not sure how long I can ignore the undeniable spark between us. (It’s not even a spark; it’s a full-fledged, blazing fire.)

Can this hockey player prove he’s boyfriend material, or will our past get in the way?

This steamy romance is perfect for fans of enemies-to-lovers or second-chances. Boyfriend Material is a new adult college romance.

I wanted to love this book ,but I really had a hard time connecting with the main characters. Eric has a big personality and loves hockey. He is being pressured to do what his father wants him to do and follow in his footsteps…which is not hockey. Not only his father’s but his deceased brothers. I got tired very quickly of Eric being upset by not being able to follow his own dreams and not standing up to his father.

Julia is a stripper who gave up her dreams due to an addict mother who racked up bills with a loanshark. While it appears Julia has been through a lot in life, the choices she makes could have been avoided. I was not a big fan of hers or the dumb things she does. Some of the situations she got into were cringeworthy and too much.

These two reconnect. I feel that since Eric has no control over his own life, he tries to fix Julia. For some reason, these two hardship stories did not mesh well for me. The sex scenes did not have chemistry and felt forced. I had a hard time feeling the connection between these two. Maybe it was because I was not crazy about the characters individually. It was disappointing for me, but you may fall in love with these two and love the story.

Keep reading for a look inside Boyfriend Material!

Eric’s large frame and rugged handsomeness takes the air from my lungs. His hair is pulled back in a man-bun, my fav look on him.

No. I do not have a favorite look for him, but it does show off his ridiculous cheekbones and aristocratic, slightly bent nose.

He’s wearing jeans, gold Converse, and a HU shirt. The lion on the front seems to glare at me—much like he is now.

I lean against the doorjamb. Be cool, be cool. “Howdy, partner.”

He doesn’t smile. “That guy at the laundromat is scary. Stay away from him. I mean it.”

I huff. The nerve of him to tell me what to do.

“That’s what I told you. I repeat, you could have been hurt. Let me handle Connor.”

His arms cross. “How did you get involved with him? Are you on drugs?”

I tuck my hands in my pockets and dip my head so he can’t see how much his words hurt. I know I strip, no one has to remind me, but in prep school, I was the goody-two shoes who never wavered. I had to keep my grades up to keep my scholarship—not that I was ever invited to parties. I wrote poetry. I drew. I daydreamed about him. “Do I look like an addict?”

His golden eyes roam over me. Assessing. “Maybe.”

My throat tingles with words I want to say but know I shouldn’t.

The less he knows, the better.

His nose flares. “I’m trying to help you and you’re giving me the cold shoulder. What’s wrong with you?”

I swallow thickly as I gaze at him. “Eric. Please. Being around me will only smear your good name—”

“Stop,” he calls out, then rubs his face, his anger seeming to deflate like a popped tire. “Don’t put yourself down like that. You’re a person, Julia. One that people care about.”

And I want to protect those people.

I chew on my bottom lip. “You shouldn’t have interfered.”

He lets out a long sigh, gives me a searching look, goes to leave, then stops. He reaches into his pocket and holds something up. “This is yours, I assume.”

I stare at the ring, my lips parting. “How did you . . .?”

But he’s already out the door.

My Scorned Best Friend by Piper Rayne ~ Release Blitz

My Scorned Best Friend by Piper Rayne is now live!

Xavier and Clara kissing in a tree…

When your best friend growing up is a girl, that’s the song your classmates taunt you with over and over again. But it was never like that… until now.

It’s always been Clara and me. She’s the only one who truly knows me. After I was drafted into the NFL and ended up the starting quarterback for the San Francisco Kingsmen, I begged her to come with me. But she had her own life and responsibilities back in our small Alaskan town, so I didn’t fault her for staying.

We remained the best of friends despite the distance. I’d hang with her in Alaska during the off season, and she’d visit me in California while I was playing. Then, one night the lines blurred for the briefest of moments and set in motion a series of events that changed everything.

I’m not proud of the decisions I made after that fateful night, and I plan on making amends, because I need Clara back in my life. But not as my best friend—as my everything.

I love this author and series. I had high expectations but Clara and Xavier’s story didn’t turn out like I was hoping for. This friends to lovers book needed more explosive and energetic conversations and sexy scenes to stand out for me. Clara and Xavier are the classic best friends since birth type of friends. Through the years they have never crossed the line of friend/lover and because of that their friendship flourished.

Xavier gets into the NFL and leaves their small town. He basically lets the fame, women and fortune get to his head. On a visit between these two friends, that thin line gets crossed and Clara gets her heart broken. They end up barely speaking for almost two years. Xavier realizes what a jerk he has been and on a visit back home tries to win Clara back. I’m not sure why but I could not warm up to Clara. I could not connect with their friendship turned relationship. I wanted to love it but I only just liked it. I was a little bit disappointed that I couldn’t fully immerse myself into their connection.

I wanted to like this book and did to a point. The main character literally had me on edge and I may have screamed at my kindle more than once. Morgan and Hayes are forced together after their parents marry each other but there is soooo much more to this than meets the eye. Hayes for some reason hates Morgan. Later you find out the reason which creeped me out. Morgan does nothing but chase this poor guy, nag and tries to insert herself into his life. She is an empathic character but it just got to be too much. She was always wanting to help him and be there for him. Girl, pump the brakes! At some point, I think she wears the poor guy down. They come together and I think Hayes truly does care about Morgan. The sexy scenes could have been a little steamier for my taste. Some of the scenes between these two get cringeworthy. Also, there were too many twists and turns that didn’t make sense to me. I was a bit disappointed with the way the story went but it will probably be amazing for some people.

The Mrs. Degree by Sara Ney ~ Release Blitz

From USA TODAY Bestselling Author Sara Ney comes a new series about strong, single girls falling in love: accidentally.

THE MRS. DEGREE
Sara Ney
Release Date: May 3

I never thought I would get pregnant in college.

When I did, I thought leaving Jack Jennings was doing him a giant favor—he had a bright future ahead of him as a football star—the last thing he needed was me and a baby standing in his way of his dreams.

Honestly? I figured he would eventually forget about me.

I would raise our child in secret and watch Jack on television, and the pain of what I’d done to him would heal.

The last person I expected to see on my brothers doorstep seven years later was Jack; obviously, or I wouldn’t have answered it.

A superstitious athlete, dreams were keeping him awake at night that were preventing him from excelling on the field—dreams he was hoping I could make…disappear.

He looked so good. So much older.

Kind. Handsome.

Turns out, he hadn’t forgotten about me either, and he hadn’t put our past behind him.

I have to say that this book had me excited by the blurb that I had read. But once I did get my hands on it, I was surprised that I couldn’t connect with the story. Penelope and Jack went to college together and dated. He had the opportunity to become a big NFL star and Penelope at the same time found out she was pregnant. She thought she did the honorable thing by completely ignoring him, cutting him off and blocking him. I hate this scenario in every book that authors do this in. It can only set up for a huge blowout once the father finds out. It’s now seven years later and Jack is in a slump. For some reason, he thinks seeing Penelope will help with his latest downward spiral. He is determined to find her and get her out of his mind. Once he does find her, not only does he get the shock of his life but feelings are clearly not done for the two of them. The way these two are brought back together left a lot to be desired. Once they found each other it did pick up a bit but I was still feeling down from the start. The sexy scenes could have been more frequent and a little bit steamier but that’s just my opinion. It was an ok book for me. I am looking forward to reading more in this series and see if things are different in other books.
