RELEASE DAY BLITZ: DR. ER BY MAX MONROE

RELEASE DAY BLITZ: DR. ER BY MAX MONROE

Title: Dr. ERotic
Author: Max Monroe
Series: St. Luke's Docuseries
Release Date: June 27, 2017

BLURB: 
Dr. Erotic. 
That’s what they’ve decided to call me, Scott Shepard, the head of St. Luke’s Hospital Emergency Department. 
Just thinking about it makes me smile. 
As the new face of the reality docuseries, The Doctor Is In, I plan to take his power and recognition right to the streets of New York City and into the pants of willing women. 
Well, that was my plan. 
Until her—feisty, beautiful, and addictively sexy Harlow Paige. 
A gossip columnist that just loves writing about yours truly, she’s everything I thought I never wanted and then some. 
She drives me crazy. 
Problem is, she doesn’t want to be anything when it comes to me—not friends, not lovers, not even adversaries.    
God, I love a good challenge.
Get ready, Harlow. Love is contagious.


REVIEW: 5 OUT OF 5 STARS!


I love everything this author duo writes and this book was no exception. Dr. ER by Max Monroe was a funny and well-written story that entertained me the whole way through. Full of laugh-out-loud moments and wonderful banter, this book was another fabulous story in the St. Luke's Docuseries. 


“Most women find me charming.” 

“I guess I’m in the minority, then.”

I loved Dr. OB, the first book in the series, and couldn't wait to get my hands on Scott's story. I love that even though these stories are light and funny, the characters have depth and everything about the story is well-developed. Scott and Harlow's relationship was so hot and sweet. The two of them were so anti-relationship and so determined not to fall for each other. Harlow was everything I love in a heroine; fiesty, intelligent, quick-witted. It was refreshing to see a female main character who was more opposed to relationships than the male was. And Scott Shepard, sigh. I usually dislike manwhores, but he was just so likable and charming and he was genuinely a good guy. And he gets bonus points from me for being all about Harlow after they get together. The way he fell for her was so endearing, and I loved how patient he was with her. 

"This was it. She was it. I’d finally found a woman worth chasing."

The storyline flowed really well and the epilogue was one of my favorites. I laughed out loud so many times while reading this story. I am so happy that there is another book coming soon, and cannot wait to get my hands on Dr. Nuero!

RELEASE BLITZ: THE KING BY SKYE WARREN




Title: The King
Series: The Masterpiece Duet #1
Author: Skye Warren
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 27, 2017



Blurb

The highest stakes...

My father gambles every night, falling deeper and deeper into debt. When he hits the bottom, he places a new bet: his daughter. I'm his entry bet to the biggest underground poker game.

The players are politicians and mafia men, every kind of danger around a velvet-covered table. But it's only one man who makes me shake.

The man I once thought I loved.

The man who betrayed me.

His eyes meet mine with dark promise. And when he puts down his money, I know I'm going to lose more than my body. I'm going to lose everything.

REVIEW: 5 OUT OF 5 STARS---

Skye Warren delivers a heartbreaking, dark, intensely emotional story with The King. Warren masters dark romance brilliantly and with ease, giving Penny and Damon's story a layered complexity that leaves the reader breathless.
I loved the way the story was laid out, as we are given a taste of a younger Damon and Penny before their main story begins. The way their journey begins only solidifies their bond and their love for each other. These were two characters with vastly different backgrounds with different expectations, yet they felt a pull towards each other that only intensified with time. Warren takes the time to flesh out the story and delves deep into the characters and what they are feeling. What they experienced at the hands of a monster was heart-wrenching to read. The author is so skilled at writing about difficult subjects in a way that makes me, as the reader, feel each and every emotion the character is experiencing. I was absolutely captivated while reading, knowing that the odds were stacked high against this couple but hoping that they would defy those odds.
The storyline flowed so well, I had to read the book in one sitting. Each and every scene with Damon and Penny was so full of tension and jam-packed with angst. I fell in love with Damon and Penny and am hoping that they will finally find their much-deserved happiness in the next book. Fans of dark romantic suspense will love this story, and I will be anxiously awaiting the conclusion to this duet.

THE KING is a spin-off novel of the USA Today bestselling Endgame series about Damon Scott.

RELEASE BLITZ: WHERE I BELONG BY MOLLY O'KEEFE

THE DUET IS COMPLETE Where I Belong by M. O'Keefe is NOW LIVE! "[T]otally one-clickable!" — J. Kenner NYT and Internationally Best Selling Author

THE GIRL I LOVED IS THE WOMAN I CAN’T HAVE It was simple: Pay the debt and I stay out of jail. Pay the debt and I stay alive. But I sacrificed it all for Beth. I didn’t pay what I owed. I’m sure punishment is coming, but I can take it - as long as Beth is safe. Away from her mother and everyone else who would hurt her. I gave it all up for two days with her. And it was worth it. She always was. THE SECRETS WE KEEP ARE WHAT TEARS US APART We’re supposed to be done. Over. Tommy goes his way, I go mine. Cue the heartbreaking music. I’m supposed to forget him, but I don’t think I can. And when the danger closes in on Tommy, we’re on the run again. From Bates. From my mother. From our past. And there are no safe places to hide. Except one. And it’s the place that will hurt Tommy the most. But maybe it’s time for me to face my past. My demons. Maybe it’s time for me to save Tommy for once.

REVIEW: 4 STARS: Molly O'Keefe is a terrific writer and storyteller and she showcases this perfectly with the Debt series. Emotionally gripping and filled with passion, Where I Belong concludes Tommy and Beth's tumultuous and angst-filled journey.

Beth and Tommy's story was one of love, loss, and sacrifice. These two characters had so much to overcome: their pasts, their present, and everything in between. The weight of these things were so incredibly heavy and couldn't be overcome with one conversation or intimate encounter. I love that the author was so authentic in the way she wrote the characters' struggles, never glossing over things. O'Keefe writes tension and angst so well, and those elements were constantly present between Beth and Tommy. The intimate scenes were so hot and so well-written, and with the level of emotion between the two of them, it made for some seriously intense scenes.

After reading the first book I had no idea how the author would get these characters out of the cluster of a situation they were in, but she did so beautifully and with ease. I always get so excited when I find a great new series, and this one is not only well-executed but unique and deliciously engaging. I am so excited to know that there are more books planned for the Debt series, and am looking forward to reading the stories of the rest of the characters.

REVIEW: 4 STARS- In Lost Without You, Book 2 of the Debt series, Molly O'Keefe gives readers a dark and emotional story that is well-paced and original. The second part of this story picks up seven years after the lives of five teenagers were drastically altered on one fateful night.

I love the uniqueness of this series and the way the story is executed. The author writes emotional turmoil so well, pulling in the reader and making them feel for the characters. After reading the Prologue I honestly had no idea where the author would take the story. Tommy and Beth's lives have gone in drastically different directions, and they each handled the memories of their painful pasts in different ways. I loved that even though they were only 16 when they fell for each other, their connection was just as strong as ever when they reunited. The dialogue was as well-written as the intimate scenes, and I enjoyed the bits from the past that were written into the story.

The angst in this story was super high, and I am hoping that Tommy and Beth can push through the heavy weight of their pasts to find some sort of happiness with each other. There is still so much to Beth and Tommy that is yet to be uncovered, and I am so anxious to learn more about the rest of the group and how they handled the aftermath of the turmoil they suffered. Lost Without You ends on one heck of a cliffhanger, and I am so eager to get my hands on the next book in the series.

RELEASE BLITZ: TORRID BY NIKKI SLOANE




Title: Torrid
A Standalone Sordid Novel
Author: Nikki Sloane
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: June 15, 2017



Blurb

Vasilije Markovic is the prince of the Serbian mafia and one of the most powerful men in Chicago. His smile may be razor sharp, but he’s crueler than the devil.

I’m playing a dangerous game and betting my life I’m going to win. I pretend to be his pawn. I do as he says and move where he tells me, letting him think he’s in control as I position myself for revenge.

Every turn brings us closer. His grin doesn’t seem as evil when we’re alone. Behind closed doors, I welcome his unrelenting and vicious personality. He’s confessed all his secrets, but I’m holding one back and it’s a game changer.

If I survive the board, this pawn turns into a queen. I become the most powerful player and send all the other pieces running. To get what I want, I must make sacrifices, but am I willing to draw the line at him?

REVIEW- 4 STARS: Dark and edgy, Torrid by Nikki Sloane is a story with a great mix of suspense and seriously dirty sex. Torrid tells the story of two people playing a dangerous game while battling unexpected feelings for each other.

I loved Sordid, the first book in this series, and was so pleased to know that Vasilije would be getting his own story. He was so deliciously bad in the first book, and he did not disappoint in Torrid. He was cold and ruthless, yet his frozen heart began to thaw unexpectedly when Oksana came into his life. He had a tragic and troubled past and it affected him greatly, turning him into a person with a great ambition for power. Oksana was someone with her own agenda, strong in her own way, and she definitely didn't expect to grow feelings for Vasilije. The circumstances surrounding them were dangerous and precarious, and it was great watching the two of them trying to navigate their feelings and each other amid the danger. Their connection was fierce, and they unexpectedly found that they were a perfect match, practically made for each other.

The story flowed well and had a good mix of steaminess, suspense, and yummy mafia goodness. The writing was great and evenly paced, making for a very enjoyable read. There was no unnecessary drama, just straight story with substance. Fans of super steamy mafia romance will definitely enjoy this book, and I really hope that Sloane has more books planned for this series.

RELEASE BLITZ: Emilia: Part One by Lisa Cardiff

Title: Emilia: Part One
Series: Trassato Crime #3
Author: Lisa Cardiff
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 16, 2017 Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Freedom and a meaningful life away from the violence of the Trassato Crime Family is all I ever wanted…
But what I want doesn’t matter now that I’m caught in a tug of war between two men in the dangerous world of organized crime.
Marcello Masciantonio is the man my father expects me to marry. He wants me because I’m the daughter of Dominick Trassato, New York’s most powerful crime boss. He says he’s my future, and I want to hate him, but I can’t deny the spark that burns between us. 
Salvatore D’Amico is perfect. He supports me. He understands me. He’s willing to betray my father and give up his family to have me. He doesn’t care about the power that comes with being part of my family. He wants me for me. 
My choice is simple, right? 
Wrong. 
Everyone has an agenda, including Salvatore and Marcello, and just when I think I have everything figured out, I realize I don’t know a damn thing. 
Truths are lies. Freedom is lonely. But worst of all…
My love triangle is actually a hate triangle.
“Did you get everything you wanted?” I debated my answer for a split second and lifted my chin. “No. Not yet, but I’m hoping there are still some surprises in store for me. Maybe you can help me. I am the birthday girl after all. I’m pretty sure you have a duty to make all my wishes come true.”
“Hmm. Is that right?”
“Would I lie to you?”
One side of his mouth hooked up and I swear on everything holy my stomach fluttered. “That’s up for debate, but I’ll play along for now. What do you want?”
“So, um, I’m eighteen now and all, and I-I…” My courage stalled and I couldn’t get the request out of my mouth. I rolled my neck in a circle, unscrambling the tangled thoughts clouding my brain. He could say no, and without a doubt, I’d feel uncomfortable every time we ran into each other, and that was all right. I didn’t plan to remain under my father’s roof for more than another year anyway.
“I want a birthday kiss,” I blurted before my pride had the chance to edit my request.
His hand abandoned mine. “You do?”
“From you,” I added, heat crawling up my neck. Thank God for the darkness.
He glanced at the house and rubbed the back of his neck. “That’s not gonna happen.”
“Why?”
“Well, for starters, I think your dad would put a bullet between my eyes.”
“My dad is holed up in the study with the rest of the men drinking bourbon and smoking cigars.”
“That explains why it looked like a girls only party inside.”
“Yep.”
The corners of his eyes crinkled, taking me in and clearly deliberating the pros and cons of my request. “In that case…” He tugged on my sleeve, pulling me closer to him. “I think I need to do my duty and grant the birthday girl her wish.”
“You do,” I rasped out, my eyelids heavy, my heart racing, and my lips tingling in anticipation.
After spending years practicing law and running a real estate development company with her husband, Lisa decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer and she must confess that inventing characters is so much more fun than writing contracts and legal briefs. A native of Colorado, she lives with her husband and three children in Denver.
