My Almost Ex by Piper Rayne ~ Release Blitz w/ 4.5 Star Review!

MY ALMOST EX
Piper Rayne
Release Date: April 6

In the middle of a crowded bar in our small Alaskan town, my estranged wife snuggles up to me as if we’re still a happy couple.

Don’t get me wrong, we were a happy couple—before she walked out on me a year ago. We were the high school sweethearts everyone thought were destined to be together forever. We thought so too, which is why we married shortly after graduation.

We had a good marriage. Until she left me without any real explanation.

Now, she’s back—and this is the real kicker—she has amnesia and thinks I’m still her husband. Technically I am, although the divorce papers are sitting at the lawyer’s office.

She’s desperate to remember her life in Sunrise Bay but I only want to find out why she left me. Once we conjure that memory up, it’s sayonara because there’s no second chances here. But as you probably already figured out, things didn’t go quite as I planned.

This is the 2nd book in this series and while you don’t need to read the first, you may want to. You do see recurring characters (Ethel and Dori) who add so much humor to this series. This book is about Adam and Lucy. Their story hurts and feels good at the same time. These two have been in love since they were in their teens and were joined at the hip. They grew up, married and have a wonderful life. Until one day Lucy tells Adam, she is no longer happy and walks out of his life without any other explanation. Adam is obviously devastated and can not figure out why the love of his life just walked away from everything they have built together. His heart is destroyed and he swears off loving anyone else ever again.

Fast forward to a year later and Adam has just finally started dating. Even though his heart is still broken, he knows that it is time to move on and let Lucy go. Lucy returns but one thing has changed, Lucy was in an accident and has lost portions of her memory! She sees Adam and thinks she is still married to him! She has no idea that she walked away a year ago and no memories of where she was or why she left. Her doctor felt if she returned there, her memory might get jogged.

It was heartbreaking watching Adam have his heart ripped back open and the only love of his life back thinking they are together. It was such an internal struggle for him. This was a great book and I loved seeing these two reconnect. But there are some obstacles that are thrown into their path and you’re not sure if they can survive them. Look forward to reading more in this series!

Phew, this is a series so you need to read the first book to even have a clue of what is going on. And again, like my review of the first book, I don’t want to give to much away…not that I could because this series is so complex.

The second book picks up after the first ends with a cliffy. I feel like this book was a bridge to some serious sh*t that is about to happen in the next book. It wasn’t that long but was chock full of crazy. Mia and Bexley are trying to fight to stay in each others’ lives as best as they can without Cade finding out. Other characters are starting to lose their way and others are seeing things clearer . Some are pulling away from the creepiness that is oozing out of this town. There is a countdown that is looming and getting closer and closer. Mia and Bexley know that once this day comes…it may be the end for them.

They are on a mission in this book to find a way to change the outcome of the impending Dooms Day. Yet again, this book ends literally on the Day of Doom and we have to wait to find out what the hell will become of this town. There were more hot scenes, some pretty angsty and WTF scenes. Things are definitely escalating and more of Cade’s crazy is showing. Sitting waiting patiently for next book!

Thomas Knox aka Knox is the epitome of a cowboy with an adorable accent. He is a super hot alpha but definitely has a soft side. After an injury halted his dream career, he is resigned to run the family ranch. He is dealing with heartbreak as well since his actress girlfriend fell madly in love with another actor. He feels beat up but has no shortage of women that’s for sure. He has almost given up on love.

After meeting Belle, he realizes that she is an up-and-coming singer and knows that this will only end up in another heartbreak due to fame. There is no way he is going to get hung up on someone who will eventually get famous and leave him again. Only fate steps in and these two keep crossing paths. It was a bit of a rushed love story with some sexy scenes that kept my interest to find out if these two could actually give their relationship a go. There were some pretty funny moments as well as a few heart tugging scenes. I loved watching these two figure out the high profile life between a singer and a farm country boy.

Big Dick Energy by Cindi Madsen ~ Release Blitz

🍆 NOW AVAILABLE 🍆

𝐁𝐢𝐠 𝐃🍆𝐜𝐤 𝐄𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐲 by Cindi Madsen is live!

“A great read! I loved the story, the characters, and the BDE. Penelope and Archer’s chemistry hooked me from their first meeting to the last page.”- Kristen, Goodreads

About the Book

Sick of being talked over and disregarded at work, I resolve to exude the same confidence as the males who perpetually get promoted over me. While honing my Big Dick Energy skills at a bar with my friends, I rebuff the advances of a man who embodies the definition. Hot. Cocky. Swagger for days. It’s a no from me, and his shock indicates he’s not often rejected.

The joke’s on me when I discover he’s my new business partner. After the months it took to land the account, I refuse to apologize to Archer York, backdown during meetings where we constantly clash, or do anything that’d make me seem weak—although my knees feel anything but strong around the guy. But as our frustrating encounters turn flirty, I wonder if it’d be so bad to throw decorum out the window and do what alpha guys do best—think with their dicks.

Penelope is hard working and tired of being pushed aside by her boss because she is a woman. She is fed up of doing all the late nights, extra hours, top notch work and getting her nowhere. While out drinking with her man hating girlfriends one night, they tell her to fight back. To not let the men of the world push her around and be Big D&ck Energy. When the hot, hot guy at the bar tries to hit on her using lame pick up lines, she unleashes all her pent up anger on him and cuts him down brutally. Not once but twice. Her girls praise her and even though she thinks the stranger was gorgeous, she felt liberated that she stood up for herself to not be treated as a piece of meat.

Fast forward to work targeting a big client, waiting for someone her boss has brought in to give a different perspective to the new client. The expert is a real shark and exactly who they need to land this client. Can you guess who it is? Yep, it’s the stranger from the bar Archer. She is mortified she will have to work with the guy she gave a tongue lashing to.

Penelope was one tantrum away from me giving up on this book. I could not connect with her character and wanted to scream for Archer to run. The story started out pretty good but didn’t quite go the way I had hoped. It was an ok read for me but you might find it amazing.

Not So Sincerely Yours by A.M. Johnson ~ Release Blitz w/ Review & Giveaway!

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Trope: Enemies-to-lovers, office romance

SYNOPSIS


Ethan, 
About last night… I could blame the bourbon. I could say I let things get out of hand, that I should have never called you, but I’m done lying to myself—to you. I know what you’re going to say. You’re not very good at keeping your opinions to yourself, but this can’t happen. It’s inappropriate, at best. I’m your boss. Not to mention, you’re clearly still hung up on him. I’m not a consolation prize. 

Anders~ 

** 

Anders, 
You didn’t think it was inappropriate when you had your tongue down my throat, but I digress. As for your accusation, I’m not the only one stuck in the past, but at least I’m not running from it. I can’t believe I’m about to say this… Maybe you’re right. You shouldn’t have called me. Especially if you never intended to own it. Own that you wanted it to happen. Admit that you wanted me. 

Not so sincerely, 
Yours

I did not realize this was a M/M storyline when I started to read this book. Not that it’s a bad thing, but it completely caught me off guard. I have read my fair share of M/M but it wasn’t what I was expecting.

Anders is a straight-laced, uptight successful business man. Ethan is a funny, not so successful college student studying to become a nurse. He takes a job as Anders’ part time assistant and their attraction starts from there. The longer they work together and get to know each other, they realize they have more in common than they first thought. Their friendship grows and due to their attraction to each other turns into a relationship. I wanted to like this new found relationship but I didn’t feel the connection between these two at all. There were a few sexy scenes that were enjoyable but nothing crazy. Unfortunately, this one didn’t do it for me. But it may be the perfect book for you.
