Synopsis

Harmful Rush is a standalone, full-length novel set in the Remedy world. You do not have to read the first two books to read this book.

Skylark Samuels has a secret.

She’s not a normal teenager, although she plays one in real life. Pretending to be something you’re not isn’t easy, especially in high school where gossip is gold. For years, Sky manages to hide her uniqueness, until one fateful day when she exposes her gift, her curse, and all her fears come to pass. Now instead of going to college near home like she planned, she has to leave town and go someplace where the rumors can’t follow. The plan when she gets there: keep to herself and stay under the radar.

But blending into the background is impossible when local heartthrob Dylan Parks notices her. Even though Sky keeps her distance and doesn’t act like one of Dylan’s adoring fans, he goes out of his way to talk to her. Her. The girl who wants to be invisible.

Sky isn’t immune to Dylan’s charm, but getting close to him is a bad idea. It goes against the promise she made to herself. Besides, if Dylan knew the truth, he wouldn’t want her. If he discovered her secret, he’d treat her differently and possibly fear her. It’s happened before. But the more Sky gets to know Dylan, the harder it is to resist him, until fate intervenes.

A tragic event forces Sky to reveal herself to the one person she’s come to care for, and his reaction is unexpected. For the first time, she doesn’t feel so alone. But what she doesn’t realize is that she’s never been alone. When she finally lets her guard down, someone comes along who threatens to unravel everything, because being normal was never Sky’s destiny.

Review

I generously received this ARC from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review…

This book is my first Debra Doxer read, but I will happily admit that it certainly won’t be my last! I haven’t read many paranormal books in last few years since I binge read this genre when it was in its most “popular phase.” However, after reading Harmful Rush I think I may have to start one-clicking this genre once again!

There is just so much that I want to tell you about this story, but it is nearly impossibly to do so without spoiling something major in the storyline. I loved how the author chose to write this book and it’s amazing how it instantly captured my attention. Although this book is part of the Remedy series, it is considered a STANDALONE and can certainly be read and enjoyed as one. Since I enjoyed this book so much I plan to check out the rest of this series soon!

Cover Reveal – All About the D by Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam

All About the D Ebook Cover

All About the D by Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 2, 2017
Pre-Order: Amazon

Synopsis

A sexy new romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin and bestselling author Leslie McAdam…

ALL ABOUT THE D

I’m known for being formal. Meticulous. Professional.

So you’d never suspect I spend my nights photographing my impressive junk for a NSFW blog. Don’t roll your eyes. I’m not bragging. I have millions of followers who’ll tell you they live for my posts.

I’m like a superhero, saving humanity one dick pic at a time.

Except leading a double life means I need someone to help me protect my anonymity, so that no one, especially my family, ever discovers my online celebrity.

When I call one of the most respected law firms in town, I expect quality legal advice and confidentiality. Not a sinfully sexy attorney whose dangerous curves and soul-piercing gray eyes make me want to personally demonstrate my particular skill set.

I shouldn’t be tempted.

Especially when she knows all of my best-kept secrets. But everyone has a breaking point. And I’ve met mine.

About Leslie McAdam

Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement.

Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.

Blog Tour & Review – The Makeup Test by Vanessa M. Knight

MakeupTest

The Makeup Test by Vanessa M. Knight
Series: Ritter University #6
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 4, 2017
Buy Now: Amazon 

Synopsis

Parker Breckinridge is a sophomore in college and already running her own internet cosmetics business. She doesn’t apologize for her successes—or anything else. She’s worked hard to get what where she is. She’s had to. It’s not like there was anything else in her life, despite her rich family.

Cade Adler doesn’t do relationships—especially relationships with uptight princesses. Been there. Done that. Destroyed the T-shirt. Besides, what with working full-time as a police officer and going to school, who has time for women? Not him.

With his tattoos and overall attitude, Cade is exactly what Parker doesn’t need. And between her father’s money and her piss-poor attitude, Parker is exactly what Cade doesn’t need.

So why is it they can’t stay apart?

Review

I generously received this ARC from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review…

This is the first book that I’ve read in the Ritter University series, but that is okay since it was easily understood as a standalone. I throughly enjoyed this fast paced story and was able to finish it in one sitting. There was a nice balance of humor and romance so that was definitely a plus. I didn’t immediately connect with Parker’s character, but after getting to “know” her, I slowly began to understand and connect with her character. She was misunderstood and it was refreshing to see her “grow” throughout the story. Overall, I would recommend this book and totally go back and read the other books in the series!

Synopsis

Charlie Davenport is the bad boy of British tennis – and third in line to the throne. He’s a beast on the courts, and a wild animal in bed (according to all the tabloids). Girls are lining up for chance at his crown jewels, and when I stumble into the wrong Wimbledon dressing room and catch a glimpse of his game, set, AND match, I can see why.

So what’s a little good luck kiss between f̶r̶i̶e̶n̶d̶s̶ strangers? 

I know better than to get involved with a bad boy like Charlie. But now he’s on a winning streak, he thinks I’m his lucky charm – and you know what’s luckier than a kiss?

Everything.

Suddenly, I’ve got paparazzi on my trail, exes coming out of the woodwork — and you don’t know ‘cutthroat’ until you’ve seen a pack of hungry socialites set loose near the Royal Family.

I’m in way over my head, and even worse – I’m falling in love.  Can this American girl win her Prince Charming? Or will we both crash out of the championships in flames? 

Wimbledon-meets-The Prince and Me in this hilarious, sexy new romance from Katie McCoy!

Review

I generously received this ARC from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review…

Calling all ROMCOM book lovers…

Romantic Comedy is perhaps one of my new recent obsessions, I just can’t seem to get enough of it! Before starting my blog I never really went outside of my comfort zone, but I have slowly began to spread my horizon and discovered that I’ve been missing out on some extraordinary ROMCOM stories over the years.

This story hooked me right from the beginning and I quickly found myself staying up late into the night to finish it since I knew I wouldn’t have time the next day. I have to admit that it was well worth the three and a half hours of sleep that I got. Like most ROMCOM stories we get a nice mixture of romance and comedy! I honestly don’t think that anything I say will do justice to this book, so I will just say that I strongly recommend giving this book a shot!

Somebody Else’s Sky by Jessica Hawkins
Series: Something in the Way #2
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2017
Pre-Order: Amazon / B&N / Kobo / iBooks

Full Wrap

Synopsis

If I closed my eyes, I could still see them—all blonde sunshine, ocean-blue eyes, and long limbs. The glint of Lake’s gold bracelet. Pink cotton candy on Tiffany’s tongue. My scenery may have changed from heaven to hell, but some things never would: my struggle to do right by both sisters. To let Lake soar. To lift Tiffany up. The sacrifices I made for them, I made willingly.

A better man would’ve walked away by now, but I never claimed to be any good. I only promised myself I’d keep enough distance. If I’d learned one thing from my past, it was that love came in different forms. You could love passionately, hurt deep, die young. Or you could provide the kind of firm, steady support someone else could lean on.

Lake was everything I wanted, and nothing I could ever have. I was nobody before I knew her and a criminal after. The way to love her was to let her shine—even if it would be for somebody else.

About Jessica Hawkins

She studied international business at Arizona State University and has also lived in Costa Rica and New York City.
