Jerk It by Lani Lynn Vale ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review!

JERK IT by Lani Lynn Vale is OUT NOW!

Mavis always assumed that she would be in a hospital with the good drugs when her time came. Not in the middle of the road, with no one around but the damn town mechanic that hated her.

But there she was, having a rock star’s baby, with no one to rely on but the one that let it be known around every turn that she was a horrible person.

From the time that she met Murphy and became best friends with him at the age of eight, she knew he was destined for greatness.

But then her grandmother fired Murphy’s mom, forcing them to live on the streets, and making Murphy to realize that maybe they weren’t best friends after all.

Murphy loved Mavis.

At least, he had when he was younger, before she betrayed him.

From that moment forward, Murphy goes out of his way to stay the hell away from her, and always makes sure to never get too close. Even though everything inside of him screams to make contact.

When he moves back to town after being gone for five years, he tries his best to stay away.

But there she is at his CrossFit gym. Then having a baby on the side of the road. Oh, and breaking him a little more with each step she takes away.

Eventually, they find their way back to each other. The only problem is, by the time that Mavis makes her way back into his heart, it breaks. And not in a rhetorical way. In the ‘he only has days to live’ kind of way.

This one…hit my right in my feels. Lani once again slays another great read. The characters were fun but soooo deep at the same time. Great chemistry and definitely some witty banter to keep me giggling the entire time. This is most definitely a second chance romance. I cried! And I never cry! So kudos to Lani! Enjoy y’all! This cross fit series is epic so far. I can’t wait for the next one.

You break in through my window in the middle of the night.

You tie me up, blindfold me, then do all sorts of dirty and twisted things to me, all while whispering in my ear what a good girl I am.

Want to help me make this fantasy a reality?

I’m not sure what’s worse;

that I was drunk enough to text this fantasy to my ex-boyfriend,

or discovering that it wasn’t actually him I sent it to.

My best friend thought it would be hilarious to switch my ex’s name in my phone—

with his father’s.

The craziest part?

I had high hopes for this book but could not get into it. The novella wasn’t for me. The storyline revolves around a young girl whose best friend sends a dirty text to her ex-boyfriend. Only it didn’t go to him, it went to his father. At first, he doesn’t realize who it’s from but continues the exchange even when he does.

They agree to meet up and he makes her rape fantasy come true. To be honest, for me it felt a little creepy versus hot. This is a younger girl AND his son’s ex-girlfriend. Not to mention the son finds out and is upset. But then thinks about it and gives his blessing. In what world does this happen? Some people might love this type of fantasy but it definitely didn’t hit the mark for me. Hope it does for you.

EXCERPT

“Dare,” I declare, looking around the group.

Eli slowly grins and looks at Sara, who’s eyes gleam with anticipation.

“I dare you to send that sex fantasy to Nick,” she says, giggling. “Make him realize what he’s missing.”

My eyes widen as my heart beats wildly in my chest.

Send that fantasy to Nick?

No fucking way.

But deep down, there’s a part of me that really wants to do it. I want to prove to Nick that I’m not the sweet, innocent girl he thinks I am. I want him to see what he’s missing out on, then beg me to take him back.

Whether I would take him back is another question…

Wetting my lips, I pull out my phone and begin to type while my friends smother their giggles. God, why didn’t I just pick truth?

Damn the alcohol for making me feel so ballsy.

Me: You break in through my window in the middle of the night. You tie me up, blindfold me, then do all sorts of dirty and twisted things to me, all while whispering in my ear what a good little girl I am. Want to help me make this fantasy a reality?

I hit send and regret it immediately, the little Sent confirmation below the message taunting me. When it changes to Read, I feel even worse. I stare at the message, panic rising inside me. I wait for a reply, but nothing comes through. The only thing worse than drunk texting your ex a twisted sex fantasy is when he doesn’t reply.

Fuck, this is bad.

My fingers clench around my phone and I swallow harshly, glad that the game seems to be going on without my friends wanting any follow up about the text. God, what was I thinking? You don’t just send shit like that, let alone to your ex-boyfriend.

Sara silently shakes beside me. I narrow my eyes at her, which only makes her laugh harder. She’s got that devious look in her eyes that nearly always means bad news for me.

“What?” I ask suspiciously. “What’s going on?”

“Um… okay, don’t be mad,” Sara says, holding up her hand. My eyes narrow. I’m mad already and she hasn’t even told me what the hell she’s done. “But while you were in the bathroom, I might have switched Nick’s number in your phone.”

My eyes widen. “You did what?” I demand, my voice a high-pitched squeak. “Switched it with who?”

“Uh, some dude named Andrew?” Her voice rises so high that it comes out like a question.

You switched Nick’s name withhis dad?” I gasp.

My heart literally stops beating. I just sent my dirty, twisted little fantasy to my ex-boyfriend’s father. Leaning forward, I gasp for air. I feel sick. All I can do is picture him reading my message and… I shudder, bile rising in my chest as I swallow it back.

How am I ever going to face him again?

“I-I’m sorry. I didn’t know it was his dad,” Sara sputters through her hysterics. “We were worried you might get drunk and call Nick—”

“So, you thought letting me sext his dad was a better option?” I growl through my tears.

What makes this whole thing even worse is that fact that his dad is hot. Like, I may or may not have imagined him as the star of said fantasy on more than one occasion kind of hot.

“I’m sorry, Holls. I wasn’t thinking…”

But I’m not listening. All I can think about is how screwed I am, and in the worst possible way. What the hell is he going to think of me after reading that text? How do I explain myself to him?

What if he tells Nick?

Oh God.

What the fuck am I going to do?

My phone beeps. Hands shaking, I click on the text.

Andrew: How can I refuse an offer like that?

Holy fuck.

Sucking in a breath, I read the text again. I can’t believe he replied, let alone with a response like that. I glance up, feeling Eli’s gaze on me. Before I can process the devilish look in her eyes, my phone is in her hands.

“You have to reply.” Eli gasps, her eyes widening as she reads Andrew’s response.

“No,” I cry out. I launch myself at her, but she ducks out of my grip and dives for the bathroom. “Don’t you dare!” I howl at her through the closed door, while Lucy and Sara dissolve into hysterics on the floor. “Eli, come on. Please don’t reply,” I plead, pounding my fists on the door. The door cracks open and Eli smirks at me as she hands my phone back to me.

“Too late.”

The Aristocrat by Penelope Ward ~ Release Blitz w/ Two 4 Star Reviews!

Title: The Aristocrat
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 30, 2021

BLURB

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

The one that got away. Every girl has one, right?

Mine was a charming, British aristocrat who turned my world upside down one summer.

From the moment I first spotted Leo in the distance through my binoculars, I’d been captivated. I certainly never expected to find a man showering outside of the property across the bay in his birthday suit.

Then I noticed his housemate staring back at me with binoculars of his own—watching me watching Leo.

That made for an interesting conversation starter when I inevitably ran into them.

Turned out, the handsome Brits were only renting that house for the summer in my seaside town.

Leo and I formed an instant connection, even though we were technically opposites by all appearances. I taught him how to dig for clams, and he taught me that not all wealthy and powerful guys are pretentious.

Despite knowing he was totally wrong for me, I couldn’t seem to stay away.

It was a wild and crazy few months. And before I knew it, we’d fallen in love.

We both had one wish: more time together.

But Leo had obligations back home. He lived a life I’d never fit into. And I was going to law school. So, we decided to end it and never look back.

A part of me always felt like I’d let my soulmate walk away.

I believed our story was over.

Until five years later when he sent me a letter that shook me to my core. 

I’d thought my world was turned upside down that first summer?

Well, I knew nothing yet.

A nice, slow burn, romantic, limited time together and complicated romance. Parts definitely made me swoon, laugh, tear up and smile. Other parts frustrated me, made me feel conflicting emotions and filled me with worry. I really liked Felicity. Although she was apprehensive and sensible…she also was a smart, charming girl with a good head on her shoulders. She sometimes would take an unexpected leap of faith and I loved that about her. I also adored quite a bit about Leo. He seemed down to earth but respectful of his duties that an aristocrat must fill. Sometimes an impossible task. I found the story entertaining and further in a bit addictive. Even with some unexpected twists that left me unsettled but kept me curious about where we would end up. Life is complex and this book reminded me of that as it kept running through my mind even though I was done reading.

This was definitely an interesting read for me. At first I was laughing, then I was sad, then mad, then laughing and happy again. All the emotional rollercoaster rides for this one! Penelope is an amazing storyteller and this one was awesome. I loved the banter and easy going attitude with the characters. I enjoyed that they were real and honest with each other. That was refreshing. No hidden agendas. Definitely a good book.

Cross by Shantel Tessier ~ Blog Tour w/ 4.5 Star Review & Excerpt!

“Shantel takes us back to the gritty, addictive world of the Dark Kings and it’s as steamy, twisted, and captivating as the first two books in this amazing series.”–Siobhan Davis. USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author

Cross, an all-new dark standalone romance from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Shantel Tessier, is available now!

CROSS

Have you ever stood next to a fire and felt the heat of it on your skin? Stared into the flames and thought how amazing it would be to be that free? It changes directions with the wind, destroying everything in its wake.

That’s what she felt like.

Alexa was a wildfire that torched everything she touched, and I couldn’t wait to be consumed by her.

She was off-limits. Even though I promised to stay away, I couldn’t resist. She was the spark I had been missing in my life. The fire I craved.

I knew from an early age I was destined to burn in hell, but she was born to walk through fire.

ALEXA

I was single-minded, focused, and independent. Just how my mother raised me. I didn’t have time for anything other than myself and work.

Funny how everything can change in an instant when you least expect it.

A King entered my life. What was supposed to be one night ended up being too many to count.

He was afraid that I’d see his darkness, but I couldn’t get enough of him.

After all, a fire burns the brightest in the dark of night. And it only takes one match to cause total devastation.

Cross is the third standalone in The Dark Kings Series. You are introduced to the Kings in Code of Silence: A Dark Mafia Romance.

Whewwwwweeeee! This book was so good. I love me some Kings. These guys are all brilliant. Cross is so mysterious and always down to have a good time. I enjoyed his evolvement and was so happy for him when he finally found his happy. Alexa is a ride or die! Loved that girl. She’s not one to run away from a problem and is so loyal. It’s nice to have a couple that know what they want from each other. Definitely a great read. This series is awesome and I can’t wait for the next one!

Excerpt

She slides in, and I make my way to the driver’s side. Starting it up, I look over at her. “Where to?” I meant it more as a “where do you live?” but what I wanted to say and the words that actually came out were two very different things.

She looks over at me. “Wherever you want to go.”

That’s an open invitation if I’ve ever heard one. Obviously, she doesn’t want me at her house, or she would have suggested that. “Kingdom?”I question, unable to keep my eyes from dropping to her legs as she runs her hands over her jeans. Her nails are kept short and painted black. She wears a silver banded ring on her right hand. It’s plain yet dainty at the same time.

“I don’t gamble,” she states.

My eyes meet hers. “Neither do I.”

What I have planned for her is much more intimate. I mean, if she’s into a crowd watching, then that’s fine too. I’m not shy.

She laughs, leaning her head back against the headrest, and smiles softly at me. Her green eyes drop to my jeans, and I refrain from groaning at the thoughts that run through my mind. My hand in her hair while she’s bent over the center console with her lips wrapped around my cock …“Kingdom it is.” Not wanting to waste another second, I take off, getting the hell out of here.

We don’t say much during the twenty-minute drive back to the Strip. I keep checking on her to make sure she hasn’t passed out, and every time, she’s looking out the window.

I pull up around the back of tower one, where the Kings and I have a private entrance. Parking the car, I help her out and up the fifteen stairs that lead to a set of black doors.

Her drunk eyes take in the white marble floor and black circle with the gold K in the middle when we enter the building. Lifting her head, she notices the mirrored ceiling and chandelier hanging in the entrance.

Nigel stands behind his black marble desk in the corner. Nigel is our right-hand man. He’s more of a father to us than our actual fathers ever were. Guess it didn’t take him and Titan very long to bury Kenneth. He looks up and smiles at us. “Good evening, Cross. Alexa. It’s good to see you again.” I’m not sure how he knows her other than maybe he met her at Titan’s wedding.

“You too, Nigel,” she tells him as I scan my key card for our private elevator. Only a King has access to it. Other than him, of course. It opens immediately, and we step inside. I have to refrain from ripping her clothes off right here and now. Just a few more minutes and she’s all mine.

It comes to a stop on the Royal level to the suite that the Kings share. But no one will be here tonight. Titan hasn’t stayed one night here since he married Emilee. Grave stays at his house with April, and Bones rarely sleeps. I’m sure he’s at Glass—one of the many businesses he owns that we all pretend we don’t know about.

Stepping into our suite, I turn to face her. “Would you like a drink?”

She places her hands on my chest, gripping my shirt. “I think I’ve had enough.”

My hands go to her hips, and I yank her to me. The thought crosses my mind that this is a mistake. That she’s off-limits to me. I try to think of my best friend and how it would affect him. “I made a promise not to touch you,” I rush out, hoping she pushes me away.

She surprises me by smiling, and it’s anything but innocent. Her pretty green eyes drop to my lips before returning to mine. “I can keep a secret.” Then her lips are on mine.

Well, that fucking hurt. My goodness. I feel like my heart has been ripped out of stomach. This book is amazing. Laurel and Roth are serious GOALS. The love these two have is beautiful, unconditional and sacred. It was a true honor to enjoy their story. I loved them both from the start of the book to the very last page. Granted, I spent my time crying my eyes out and getting strange looks from people at work. Oh well. The feels were most definitely EPIC. I knew this book would be emotional and heartfelt but I didn’t expect what I read. It was so much MORE. A love like that is what everyone dreams of. It’s what true romance is made of. Simply beautiful!
