The Devil Wears Black by L.J. Shen ~ Blog Tour w/ 4 Star Review & Excerpt!

An expert at the dark and sexy anti-hero, Shen brings her seductive prose to an irresistible ‘second chance romance’.”– Oprah Magazine

The Devil Wears Black, all new enemies-to-lovers, fake fiancé standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen is available now!

Maddie Goldbloom stitched up a plan to ensure everything in her life was perfect—from a career in fashion to a chic NYC apartment to a pediatrician boyfriend.

When her ex, Chase Black, storms back into her life with an outrageous request, her immediate reaction is to refuse him. But he only wants to fulfill his father’s last wish. So even though he’s the man who broke her heart, playing his fiancée shouldn’t be hard, especially if it means she gets to watch the arrogant devil squirm a bit.

What ensues is a chain of events that detonates Maddie’s life—and when Chase’s walls come down, they both are forced to face reality.

They say keep your enemies close. But what if your enemy is also the man you love?

Chase frikin’ Black. He is definitely a man you love to hate. For all his prickly vibes he sure is sweet. I fell for him quickly. Maddie is sweet. Very quirky. These two are not what you would picture together and that’s why I like them so much. This story was good! I enjoyed the banter. Shen did a great job with this one for sure.

Excerpt

I fished for my keys in my little clutch, stomping my way up the stairs. He was still on the first step, his eyes burning a hole through my back. The one time he looked at me with anything but frost, and I was completely immune to it.  pushed the building entrance door open, ignoring his plea. 

Funny, I’d always thought it’d feel divine to dismiss him the way he’d dismissed me. But right now, my feelings swirled among hurt, anger, and confusion. Triumph was nowhere in sight, and glee was miles away. I was almost past the threshold when his next words gave me pause. 

“Too scared to give me ten minutes of your time?” he challenged, the smirk in his voice like a stab in my back. I froze. Now I recognized him. Cold, calculated. Playfully ruthless. “If you’re so over me and not at all tempted to be under me once we get upstairs, you can go back to your blissful, Chase-free existence after I say my piece, no?” 

Scared? He thought I was scared? If I were any more immune to his charms at this point, I’d actively throw up at his sight. 

I swiveled, jutting my hip out, a polite smile on my lips. “Cocky much?” 

“Just enough to get your attention,” he deadpanned, looking awfully like a man who didn’t want to be here. 

What is he doing here, anyway? 

“Five minutes will do, and you better behave.” I pointed at him with my clutch. 

“Cross my heart and hope to die.” He put a hand on his chest mockingly. 

“At least our hopes are aligned.”

I was scared to death to read the ending to the Deliver series but…Cole’s book was phenomenal! Steamy, suspenseful, twisty, intense and a perfect summation of the gritty vigilantes we fell in love with. The mysterious red headed Russian spy who captured Cole and tortured him into submission is a fair match to my personal favorite action hero Cole. Definitely a page turner that had some of the hottest scenes I’ve ever read. Almost melted my kindle into a puddle of electronic goo. I’m sad that I won’t get more of my team…my people. Bittersweet but what a way to go.

FINALLY!!! My main man gets his book!! I have been and always will be team Cole. As excited as I was to read this book, I hesitated to start it. I had such high expectations and was so afraid to read this ending. But those expectations were met and then some. Cole will forever own my heart.

The first 5 pages of this book had me in tears. And I don’t cry with books often. The utter heartbreak could be felt like it happened to me personally. And I not only endured it once but now twice! And the second time was just as horrible. If I would have been standing, I would have hit my knees. Complicate completed two series to me so the way Pam wove those stories together so well was amazing. The ending felt so bittersweet.

You don’t have to read TANGLED LIES, but if you want to read it, do so before reading this book.

When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.

I’m to leave behind.

But until then…hold the forevers.

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!

The Architect by Nikki Sloane ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review!

He’s drafting plans to seduce you.

The Architect by Nikki Sloane is now live!

On the surface, my new boyfriend is a stiff, buttoned-up architect. He plans every detail of his life while carefully maintaining the walls he’s built around his heart. But when the biggest project of his career pulls him away, Clay’s solution is both temporary and unconventional. It even comes with a name–Travis.

This handsome stranger is sweet and thoughtful. He’s only meant to be a stand-in, to fulfill my sexual needs under Clay’s watchful direction, yet these two men couldn’t be more different. The one thing they share? Well, I guess that would be me.

One gets off on my pain, the other on my pleasure, and it awakens a desire none of us knew existed. But it can’t last.

Eventually I’ll have to choose.

And it’s going to destroy us all.

About the Book

Don’t ever, ever, ever go near that boy. Not unless you want to be a single mother at seventeen. That boy is Bad with a capital B.

The words that my father spoke to me when it came to Trouper Aoki didn’t scare me like they probably should.

In fact, they only made me intrigued all the more.

When it came to Troup, there was just no resisting fate when it came to the two of us.

Even at eighteen, when we went our separate ways with the promise to come back to each other once we were done pursuing our careers, I knew he would always be it for me.

And color me surprised when eight years after making that pact with Trouper, we were once again reunited. Only this time in an undercover FBI investigation—me, the FBI officer, and Troup call sign ‘State’ as a military liaison.

Trouble always finds him. You’d do better to run far, far away.

Truer words had never been spoken.

From the time Troup was a young boy, he’d been in some kind of trouble.

So it only goes to show when he winds up in the FBI investigation with none other than Beckham Spurlock, his high school sweetheart, things are bound to go wrong.

Only, he has no idea how wrong until things go bad. Really, really bad.

All it takes is saving her by hurting another for him to see the wrong side of a jail cell.

To make matters worse, he has to live the next fifteen years in prison knowing that his son will grow up without him. And the woman he loves will likely move on to a man that isn’t so much trouble.
