Pure Seduction by Ella Frank ~ Blog Tour w/ 4.5 Star Review & Excerpt!

Pure Seduction, an all-new emotional second-chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is available now!

Small towns are definitely not for me. Probably because I was born in one, raised in one, and eventually run out of one. The understanding was that I would one day return to Chamberlin California. After all, it is my namesake. What my father didn’t count on however, was that once he sent me away, I would never come back—at least not until he was gone.

Which brings me to now, his wake, at the family winery that was supposed to be mine. It also brings me to her. The sweet girl I left behind. The girl who has since grown into the most beautiful woman I’ve ever laid eyes on—Laurel Anderson.

She’s looking at me as though she wishes I was the one she watched get buried this morning. But she’s out of luck. I’m alive and kicking. I’m also stuck in this town with nothing to do but wait until the will is read.

Well, nothing to do but see if I can seduce the pure and passionate Laurel, and change that anger I see in her eyes to something just as fiery…desire.

***

The last time I saw Noah Chamberlin, I was a doe-eyed innocent and he was the boy of my dreams. My future was all planned out down to the wedding dress, until one morning I woke up and he was gone.

You’d think after all these years, I’d feel the same blind indignation and rage that has haunted me since that day. Instead, the second I set eyes on him again, I felt something altogether unwanted and unexpected—lust.

If the rumors are true, he’s only going to be in Chamberlin for a few days. I can handle that, as long as he stops looking at me as though he’s thinking about the last time we were together. 

But when Noah’s forced to stay and run the family business, it puts us in dangerously close proximity. And in a town this small, that can only mean one thing—trouble.

Pure Seduction is a pure, sexy, sweet second chance romance. Noah…oh boy..that boy who went away came back as a confident, capable man who knows what he wants…Laurel. Laurel has grown into a smart, independent, knowledgeable woman who complements Noah perfectly. I loved the chemistry between these two and the flirty banter. I also thought the connection they shared from teens to the present was sweet and emotionally tugged at my heartstrings. Very entertaining start to a new small town series and I’m totally invested in the Chamberlin family. Bring the other two brothers on. I’m ready!

Excerpt

“Laurel Anderson.”

     My heart all but stopped at the sound of my name in that smooth, seductive timbre, and my fingers tightened on the handle.

     “Hi.” Brilliant. After all these years, that was what came out of my mouth.

     A smile slowly curved Noah’s lips, as though he knew I was tongue-tied, and I wanted to kick myself—or him—for it.

     “Hi yourself.”

     I swallowed and tried to remember that somewhere inside my head I possessed a brain. Now if I could just locate it, that would be fantastic. “I, uh, I didn’t know you were coming today.”

     “No? Everyone else in town seemed to.”

     “Well, you know how it goes. You can’t rely on everything you hear.”

     “Ah. So you heard—you just didn’t believe it.”

     “I didn’t really think about it either way.” Liar. “I’m sorry for your loss, though. Harry was—”

     “An A-grade bastard?”

     My eyes widened at the cool edge to Noah’s voice. It was a tone I’d never heard from him before. But then again, I didn’t know this man, so I had no point of reference.

     “That seems harsh, huh?”

     “It seems…” Noah’s eyes locked on me with an intensity I felt all the way to my bones. “Honest.”

     He shifted the wine bottle from one hand to the other, then he held it up by the neck and asked, “A good year?”

     I focused on the label, a 2012 Pinot Noir. “It was a great year.”

     Noah nodded and turned the bottle around so he could look at it again. “And you should know, or so I’m told. You manage this place now.”

     I wondered who had told him. His mother? Or one of his siblings? I’d never imagined a career in the wine business, and I certainly hadn’t imagined one here at his family’s winery. But circumstances had left me little choice, and now I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

     “I do. I’m also the head sommelier.”

     Noah let out a sound of disbelief that made my spine stiffen. I was good at my job—damn good at it.

     “I hope that won’t be a problem for you.”

     “A problem?” Noah shook his head. “No. I was just thinking how my family hasn’t changed at all. They still like their secrets.”

     The temperature in the room dropped back to arctic, and as I was about to hightail it out of there, Noah took a step forward. I plastered my back to the door and, cursing myself for showing my hand—and my nerves—counted back from ten before daring to look him in the eye.

     That was a mistake. I recognized those eyes and the thick lashes that curtained them. I also recognized the look in them right now. It was one of curiosity and interest.

     “I wasn’t so sure about coming back here when I showed up earlier.”

     His gaze roved over my face, as though he were searching for the girl he once knew, and I wondered if he saw parts of her in there.

     “But suddenly I find myself even happier that that asshole up and died. Otherwise I’d never have known you were here.”

     I wasn’t surprised in the slightest that my working here had been kept quiet. Harry had worked really hard to remove me from Noah’s life. He wasn’t about to tell him I was still around.

     “Well, um, I don’t want to hold you up anymore, and I need to get back to your mother’s guests.” I turned to open the door, but when I felt his hand on my shoulder, my feet froze.

     “Looking to make a quick escape again, Bonnie?”

     I closed my eyes and for a second allowed myself to remember the first time he’d ever called me that. Then I quickly shoved it aside, not willing to allow in the emotions and vulnerabilities those kind of memories would bring.

     “Do you blame me?”

     There was a pause, and the tension simmering in the air made it even more imperative that I get out of there right now.

     “No. I guess I don’t. But before you go?”

     “Yes?” As his hand fell away, I let out a silent sigh of relief.

     “I was wondering if you could tell me the best place to stay in town?”

Wowza! It’s been a minute since I’ve devoured a book by Linde. Heck it’s been a minute since I’ve sat back and relaxed at all lately! But such is this new normal to life!

Linde kept my attention like a boss with this book. The ups and downs nearly killed me. The angst caused me to shed more than a few tears. The not knowing who was going to be the winner of her heart until the END was great. The ONLY thing that made me short this half a star was the ending. I loved the couple so much I felt that I needed MORE. Definitely an addictive read. You will not want to put it down!!

This triangle is one intense ride!

Wow…what a crazy, emotional roller coaster. I LOVE a good, angsty love triangle and this story had me wavering from beginning to end. Ash or Cole…Ash or Cole… I have to admit that I had a strong favorite and my heart was constantly dropping when Lila would be caught between the two. Such intense drama filled with jealousy and bad decisions…I loved every single page. I couldn’t put the book down! I feel like K.A. Linde is the queen of angsty triangles and I know that I can’t resist whatever she dreams up to tempt me. Definitely will be one of the top love triangles I’ve read for 2021!

No, I hadn’t heard that Ryan Prince was staying at the very resort I had just started working at.

If I had, maybe I would have called in sick.

On second thought, maybe I wouldn’t have, because I really needed that paycheck. Being a single mother and having a lapse in child support had made me that desperate.

Still, I would have rather avoided the circus that rolled into Hawk Tail Resort and the man who sauntered in with it.

All these years later and he was still that same gorgeous football player I left behind in college.

Except now he wasn’t gracing the gridiron unless it was for a movie role.

I assumed he wouldn’t even recognize me, not with the actress on his arm and the crowd pressing in around him.

Ryan Prince didn’t just recognize me; the angry tilt of those lips on that too perfect face told me he remembered exactly what I did when I left.

I thought maybe this was a gift, a way to put the past to rest…but the look on his face told me he had plans to dig up everything that was unfinished between us.

The summer was about to end, but it felt like my penance for the last decade was about to begin.

This was a quick, solid read and had a little bit of everything! It’s a second chance romance book and I only wish it had been a little longer. Bex and Ryan were college sweethearts. Actually more than that, dare I say “soulmates”. Ryan’s football career was taking off professionally and due to extenuating circumstances these two break up and break each others hearts. Even though both of their lives move on, they are still connected and have never gotten over each other.

Bex has 2 small kids and not together with Logan, who she never married, and is now separated from him. He cheated on her, got his girlfriend pregnant and has moved away. He resents her because she was never able to give him her full heart despite the numerous times he proposed. He is less than a stellar father, is never around and barely helps financially. Bex has had to take a part time job at a resort doing menial things that she hates.

Ryan’s football career died when he was injured but he has a budding career as an actor. He has never committed to anyone and to the public may be a bit of a manwhore due to all of the women he is photographed with. He has never gotten over Bex and his heart is still broken. He decides that he needs a trip away to visit his parents and books a stay at the same resort Bex works at. He also decides that during this trip he will break it off with his latest fling.

Sparks immediately fly when these two see each other for the first time in almost 10 years. This book is chock full of it all. Past hurt, lies, secrets, love, revelations and some hot sexy scenes! Can Bex and Ryan find their way back to each other? Can they get over the real reason why Bex pulled away? Has this all been due to a lack of communication? Can they work around an ex that now all of a sudden wants Bex back? Can she compete with Ryan’s movie star life? This is a good book to get lost in and take a break from the real world! Look forward to more books from this author.

The Bluff by Willa Nash ~ Release Blitz w/ 4.5 Star Review!

The Bluff by Willa Nash is now live!

As Calamity’s newest resident, Everly Christian thought life in small-town Montana would be dull and tame–and she needs a little mundane after the last few chaotic years. But one night, boredom drives her to the local bar, where she finds herself sitting beside a handsome and mysterious artist.

The man is anything but dull and tame, especially in the bedroom, and when she steps out of his shower and overhears his conversation, life gets interesting again.

Reese Huxley needs a wife.

And why shouldn’t Everly be the bride?

She’s got her reasons for agreeing to the hasty nuptials–reasons she’s keeping to herself. As long as she can stop herself from falling in love with her husband, she’ll make it out of this sham marriage in one piece. But Everly has a weakness for wayward men, and the more Hux pushes her away, the more she realizes this bluff is anything but a lie.

I love this small town series! Everly followed her friend Lucy to Calamity but hasn’t figured out what she wants to do with her life after singing. Hux is the reclusive, grumpy art gallery owner. What could possibly bring these two together? I loved the cranky but hot father and the sweet but broken bestie and their budding hookup relationship. These two had chemistry for days but Hux pushed Everly and me to the limit with his stubborn set ways. There was lot of push and pull and angsty misunderstandings while they fought for his daughter Savannah to be part of Hux’s life. Definitely sucked me into the series and I can’t wait for Kerrigan’s story next! I’m wishing I could move to Calamity too!

Whoa! Knox and Aspen’s story is pretty freaking intense! Talk about a roller coaster. A whole lotta bully in this one and not a lot of romance. But I love…no CRAVE dark reads so none of the crazy, demented stuff that Knox sprinkles out there like candy at a parade really pushed me away from him. I loved that Aspen wasn’t all pure white as snow either. She definitely had her secrets and Knox wasn’t above using them in his sadistic little games. Very entertaining read that kept me glued to the pages. Dark and satisfying.
