Review Blitz: Awk-Weird by Avery Flynn

 

Review

I really enjoyed getting to know Tess and Cole. They came together pretty fast and resisted the fall as best they could but they fell together naturally in the end, as they were meant to be. 

Cole was stubborn and resistant to change. Tess was smart but apprehensive. For some reason, these two worked for me. Though Cole especially was frustrating at times, his development translated well in Ms. Flynn’s storytelling. It was easy to set aside expectations and just experience the events with the characters. The book is not only well written, it had emotional moments, funny moments, and certainly happy moments. 

As someone who reads a few hundred books a year, I can tell you that some plots feel recycled. That is not my experience with Ms. Flynn’s books. Each, including this one, brings something unique or fresh to the table. Looking forward to the next book.

There’s more to me than just being awk-weird. I own my own flower shop, have some great friends, and I have my eye on adopting the most adorable kitten. But sadly, hot guys don’t tend to be blown away by my trivia-spouting, dorky self.
 
So, when a Thor-lookalike who happens to be a professional hockey player hits on me at my bestie’s wedding rehearsal party … You better believe I climbed that tree like a cat. And the face that it happened not once, not twice, but three times? Yeah, that’s pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a woman like me. 
 
There’s zero chance I’ll end up ever seeing him again…right? 
 
Until the pregnancy test comes up positive. What happens next?
 
Oh my God, I wish I knew…

Blog Tour: Stateless by Meli Raine

Title: Stateless
Series: The Stateless Series #1
Author: Meli Raine
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 15, 2019

REVIEW

From the very first page, this story caught my attention and consistently kept it throughout. We were introduced to the other side of a conflict that has spanned several series and were given a reality that isn’t as black and white as one assumes. 

We met Callum. He was smart, dangerous, and being raised to be a weapon. We meet Kina, she is cunning, strong, brilliant, and underestimated. They make a great match and in the process start something that wasn’t supposed to be. 

The plot was riveting. I found myself caught off guard by the ending because I kept swiping my iPad for more. The pacing, imagery, and prose were done extremely well. The main characters had the opportunity to begin their development process. I can’t wait for the next book!

FINAL RATING: 5 STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Blurb
When you’re born without a trace, no one knows you’re a weapon.
I lie for her.
I hunt for her.
I kill for her.
And above all, I betray my mission for her.
She doesn’t know why. She doesn’t care why.
I do.
Treason comes in many forms.
Love is one of them.
Our training taught me to be a sociopath. A machine. A pawn. Nothing more than a tool for a larger goal, without attachments or feelings.
Our teachers forgot one important detail: Pawns shouldn’t have hearts.
Yet we do.
It turns out our emotions are our greatest weapon.
And I know exactly where mine are aimed.
The Stateless Series also includes:
Traceless (releasing 11.19.19)
Fateless (release date TBA)

Excerpt
“Thank you,” I choke out.
“For what?”
His eyes cut away. The air between us has changed. I can’t explain it.
Suddenly, I’m uncomfortable.
And yet I just want to be with him.
“For killing for me.”
As the words come forth from my mouth, I cringe inside. I did not mean to say for me. “For me” implies that he killed the bunny out of some attachment to me.
We are not allowed to have emotions for one another. It puts us at risk.
“I did it for me,” he says, louder than he should need to.
“You did?”
“Yes.”
“Why?”
“To challenge Romeo.”
“Why would you do that?” My voice goes up to a sharp squeak at the end, incredulous.
He laughs.
“Because we are taught to destabilize power structures.” He looks around. “What
do you think the compound is?”

“Bully to the highest degree. Heartless Hero is a must read for 2019.” Sarah, Musings of the Modern Belle

There are rules to being Abigail Crowne’s bodyguard, rules to watching the infamous billion-dollar heiress, otherwise known as the Reject Princess.

Never forget your place, always put the Crowne name above all else, and never, ever hurt the Reject.

Especially don’t torment the Reject.

Even if she is a spoiled brat.

So when an opportunity presents itself to punish her, you definitely shouldn’t take it.
Then again, Abigail loves to be tortured, and I’ve waited patiently for revenge.

I’ll keep her safe… with cruel protection.

Love is off limits with Abigail Crowne, but no one said anything about hate.

 

 

About the Author:
I started writing the moment I could read. My first characters were Wibbley and Squig and I used MS Word and clipart to bring them to life when I was a kid in elementary school. I started seriously thinking about being a writer in High School and I remember the day exactly, because it was such an epiphany. I was always so uncertain. You know how everyone was always asking what you wanted to be when you were older? Well I NEVER could decide.

I wanted to be a marine biologist.

An actor.

A FIRE FIGHTER (thank you Joaquin Phoenix in Ladder 49 for that phase).

One day it hit me—A WRITER. I could do it ALL. Then you couldn’t stop me from writing. I penned my first novel at fifteen (but don’t ask me to show it to you, because it’s like I was in competition to beat the thesaurus). When I was diagnosed with a chronic illness, writing became even more important, because it became my therapy. When I wrote my characters, suddenly I wasn’t so alone.

These days you can find me daydreaming about where to travel with my husband, singing in my car, or lost in the newest K drama. And planning my next novel, of course

Audiobook Review Blitz: Wake’s Claim by Michelle Dare

REVIEW

Audiobook review. Fear is powerful. It can stop someone from doing something as much as it can push them to do something they might not otherwise do. It’s a testament to one’s character how one uses its power. 

Wake’s growth in this novel is evidenced by how he transitions from one end of the spectrum to the other. While I admit it was at times frustrating to wait for this development to happen, I respect that it takes time to establish his behavior and patterns before moving forward. 

Paige was a little more balanced. I admired that while she knew what and who she wanted, she also knew what she deserved and she wasn’t willing to give up on herself. 

The plot had some originality and though the pace was on the slower side for me, it worked out in the end. The writing was good overall. The narrators, Troy Duran and Sarah L. Colton did a great job with their transitions, inflections, tone and pitch.

Wake had lived in fear for far too long. Life hadn’t been easy for him. Every day, he resisted his natural instincts to claim the one female meant for him. An event from his past stopped him in his tracks every time his primal urges pushed him toward her. 

Paige accepted the role she played in Wake’s life. She was the one he wanted but never allowed himself to have. But when someone else showed interest in her, Wake had to decide, once and for all. 

Putting his heart on the line left the shifter vulnerable, something he never wanted to be again. And just when he gave in to his instincts, fate dealt the pair a cruel hand.

Nightmares came true, causing Paige to flee to the only place she felt safe – in the arms of Wake. Pack life wasn’t an easy life, but Paige wouldn’t give up the man who held her heart. Only together could the two move forward and find the happiness they both deserved.

Review: Sinners are Winners by Lani Lynn Vale

REVIEW

You would think that after reading so many LLV books they would start feeling like the same spiel but Ms. Vale manages to keep surprising me with her unique stories. She has this knack for putting together plots that aren’t afraid to stretch the imagination a bit even as they entertain. 

Lock and Saylor were a great match. Saylor shook up Lock’s world and ignited a spark that wouldn’t be extinguished. She was the kind of trouble that Lock couldn’t resist. Lock was sexy af, protective, and sweet. 

The story was true to that LLV signature voice we’ve come to expect. The pace and imagery was solid. The plot held my interest. Definitely another great addition to the series.

He saw her from across a crowded ballpark and knew she was about to change his life. 
Yes, he realizes just how cliché that really is, but the moment his eyes locked on her, he knew that she was the one.
At least, the one that royally screwed him over. The one responsible for his demotion and the subsequent disciplinary action taken against him before he’d even gotten out of the probationary period with Kilgore Police Department.
It all started with a kiss.
***
Saylor Rae Spada tried to mind her business. She also tried to not get involved in petty disputes.
However, from the moment she saw him sitting next to her at a professional baseball game, a game she didn’t even want to be at but was dragged to by her blind date, she couldn’t look away.
Then the kiss cam came on, featuring none other than her and the handsome stranger.
Without missing a beat, he kissed her.
Then her blind date decided to pull a knife and try to stab him.
From that point forward, she’s done nothing but cause him trouble.
Trouble that he’s starting to find increasingly adorable.

Sneak Peek: All the King’s Men Duet by Kennedy Ryan

KINGMAKER SNEAK PEEK.jpg

“A dazzling, thought-provoking, layered romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat. A round of applause for one of the best books of 2019.”

— L.J. Shen, USA Today bestselling author

All The King’s Men Duet, an all-new powerful and emotional duet from RITA ® Award winning author Kennedy Ryan, is coming October 28th, and we have the first sneak peek!

KINGMAKER_FINAL.jpg

Power. Passion. Betrayal.

RITA® Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the epic first installment of the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition. In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.

My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and would do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.

And neither will I.

Sneak Peek from The Kingmaker

A fat raindrop plops on my nose, sliding down the bridge, followed by another and then a wet succession.

“Aw, hell.” I pull my jacket up on my elbows to provide some shelter for the two of us, but the rain trebles, more coming down and faster.

“We still have four blocks before my place,” I say. “Sorry, but the weather is unpredictable this time of year.”

Rain has already started molding the thin dress to her body, faithfully hugging every swell and curve. A hard shiver runs through her and her teeth chatter.

“Come on.” I grab her hand and duck into an alleyway. An overhang provides a tiny patch of dry ground and shelter. “We may be able to wait it out. These showers sprout up and pass over like they never happened.”

We’re sandwiched between two buildings and there is barely any light, but the moonlight finds her, sculpting shadows beneath her cheekbones and etching dark crescents of her lowered lashes. The rain has smeared her mascara, and water-slicked hair flattens to her head. She should look bedraggled, but she manages to be the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen.

I bend, tentative at first, even after last night. Even after making love to her again this morning when I chased her up the stairs. I approach slowly, giving her the chance to refuse, but she doesn’t. She meets me, eyes open, lips eager, hands bunched in my wet hair. It’s a freshwater kiss, made of rain and passion.
