New Release: Meant to Be by Monica Murphy

 

Meant To Be by Monica Murphy is now live!

Ava Callahan.

Love of my life.

Wrecker of my soul.

I would have sworn on anything that what we shared was real.

But she broke my trust. And then my heart. I don’t think I can piece it back together without her, but I’m sure gonna try.

I’m better off on my own, anyways, right? Who needs girls when you have football?

If only I believed that. Look, when you need someone in your life, you don’t want to let her go. And I can’t let go of Ava. I love her. She loves me. Nothing can convince me otherwise. It’s as simple as that. I know no matter what, this girl belongs to me. We may have issues, but we’re meant to be. So I’ll do whatever it takes to get her back.

Even if I have to fight dirty.

Cover Reveal: My Darling Arrow by Saffron A. Kent

Title: My Darling Arrow
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: New Adult Romance
Cover Design: Najla Qamber
Model: Jon Herrmann
Release Date: September 17, 2020
Blurb
Darling Arrow,
 
I shouldn’t be
writing this. 
It’s not as if I’m
ever going to send you this letter, and there are a million reasons why.
First of all, I was
sent to this reform school as a punishment for a petty, totally inconsequential
crime. Not to ogle the principal’s hot son around the campus.
Second of all,
you’re a giant jerk. You’re arrogant and moody and so cold. Sometimes I think I
shouldn’t even like you.
But strangely your
coldness sets me on fire. 
The way your
athletic body moves on the soccer field, and the way your powerful thighs
sprawl across that motorcycle of yours, make me go inappropriately
breathless. 
But that’s not the
worst part. 
The worst part is
that you, Arrow Carlisle, are not only the principal’s hot son. 
You also happen to
be the love of my sister’s life. 
And I really shouldn’t
be thinking about my sister’s boyfriend, or rather fiancé (I overheard a
conversation about the ring that I shouldn’t have).
Now if I can only
stop writing you these meaningless letters that I’ll never send and you’ll
never read…
 
Never yours,
Salem
NOTE: This book
is a standalone and DOES NOT contain cheating.

Sneak Peek: The Rivals by Vi Keeland

 

 

Excited about Vi Keeland’s upcoming release,
The Rivals? Check out this SNEAK PEEK

 

 

Title: The Rivals
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 13, 2020

 

Blurb

 

The feud
between Weston Lockwood and me started at the altar.
Only
neither of us attended the wedding, and the nuptials happened decades before
either of us was born.
Our
grandfathers had been best friends and business partners, at least up until my
grandfather’s wedding day—when his bride-to-be blurted out she couldn’t marry
him because she was also in love with Weston‘s grandfather.
The two men
spent years fighting over Grace Copeland, who also happened to be their third
business partner.  But in the end, neither man could steal half of her
heart away from the other.
Eventually,
they all went their separate ways.  Our
grandfathers married other women, and the two men became one of the biggest
business rivals in history.
Our fathers
continued the family tradition of feuding.
And then Weston and I did, too.
For the
most part, we kept as much distance as possible.
Until the
day the woman who started the feud died—and unexpectedly left one of the most
valuable hotels in the world to our grandfathers to share.
Now I’m
stuck in a hotel with the man I was born to hate, trying to unravel the mess
our families inherited.
As usual,
it didn’t take long for us to be at each other’s throats.
Weston
Lockwood was everything I hated: tall, smart, cocky, and too gorgeous for his
own good.  We were fire and ice. 
But that
shouldn’t be an issue. Our families were used to being at war. There was just
one minor problem, though.   Every time
Weston and I fought, we somehow wound up in bed.

Excerpt

 

Sophia
“What the hell?” I pressed the button on the elevator panel a second
time. It illuminated, yet the car continued to sit there. So I jabbed my finger
at it a third time. Finally, the doors started to glide closed.
Just as they were about to shut completely, a shoe blocked them from
closing. 
A wingtip shoe. 
Weston’s smiling face was there to greet me when the doors bounced
open. 
My blood was near boiling. “So help me, Lockwood, if you try to get in
this car, I can’t be responsible for what happens to you. I’m not in the mood
anymore.” 
He entered the elevator anyway. “Come on, Fifi. What’s wrong? I’m just playing
around. You’re taking things way too seriously.” 
I counted to ten in my head, but it didn’t help. Fuck it. He
wanted to get a rise out of me? He was going to get one. The doors slid
shut again, and I turned and backed him into a corner. Seeing my face, he at
least had the decency to look a little nervous. 
“You wanna know what’s wrong? I’ll tell you what’s wrong! My father
thinks I’m inept because I don’t have an appendage dangling between my legs.
The man I spent the last eighteen months with was cheating on me with one of my
cousins. Again. I hate New York City. I despise the Lockwood
family. And you think you can get away with anything you want just because you
have a big dick.” I jabbed my finger into his chest and punctuated each
staccato word with another stab.  
“I’m  
Tired.  
Of.  
Men.  
My father.  
Liam.  
You. 
Every single fucking one of you. So leave me the hell alone!” 
Frazzled, I turned back around and waited for the door to open, only to
realize we hadn’t started to move yet. Great.
Just fucking great. I jabbed the button a few more times, closed my eyes, and
took deep, cleansing breaths as we started to move. Halfway through breath
three, I felt the heat of Weston’s body behind me. He had to have moved closer.
I continued to try to ignore him.  
But the fucker still smelled good.  
How the hell could that be? Whose cologne lasted
for—what had it been now?—twelve hours? After the gauntlet run he’d
sent me on across town this morning, I probably smelled like BO. It pissed me
off that the asshole smelled…fucking delicious.  
He moved closer, and I felt his breath tickle my neck.  
“So,” he whispered in a gravelly voice. “You think my dick’s big.” 
I turned and scowled at him. While this morning he’d been clean-shaven,
he now had a five o’clock shadow all along his chiseled jaw. It gave
him a sinister look. The suit that hugged his broad shoulders probably cost
more than Liam’s entire sweater wardrobe. Weston Lockwood was everything I
hated in a man—wealthy, good looking, cocky, arrogant, and fearless. Liam would
hate him. My father already hated him. And at the moment, those were actually
Weston’s strong points.  
While I struggled with my body reacting to his scent and how much I liked
the stubble on his face, Weston slowly reached out and put a hand on my hip. At
first, I assumed he thought he needed to steady me, as he had when I’d wobbled
in the bar. Had I wobbled again? I didn’t think I had. But I
must’ve. 
Though when his hand glided from my hip around to my ass, there was
no misunderstanding his intention. He was not trying to
help me stay on my feet. In my head, my immediate reaction was to scream at
him, but somehow my throat felt too clogged to speak.  
I made the mistake of looking up from his jaw into his blue eyes. Heat
flickered, turning them almost gray, and his eyes dropped to my
lips.  
No.  
Just no. 
This was not happening.  
Not again. 
My heart thundered in my chest, and the blood in my ears roared so loudly
I almost didn’t hear the ding of the elevator announcing that we’d arrived at
my floor. Thankfully it snapped me out of whatever moment of insanity I’d
slipped into.  
“I…I need to go.” 
It took all of my focus to put one foot in front of the other, but I
managed to walk down the hall and make it to my room.  
Though… 
I wasn’t alone.

Cover Reveal: Hate Thy Neighbor by S.M. Soto

HTN - CR banner

Hate wasn’t the only four letter word shared between us.

Hate Thy Neighbor, an all-new enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy from S.M. Soto is coming July 27th, and we have the adorable cover!

image4

Fresh out of a failed engagement, Olivia Hales is in dire need of a fresh start. Tired of being the charming and accommodating girl that always gets stomped on, she’s determined to change her outlook on life.

When she finds her dream job in a small town in California, she thinks she’s finally found her place in life. That is, until she meets her new neighbor.

Roman Banks.

Moody. Foul-mouthed. Jerk.

And the hottest man on the planet.

At a sprawling six foot five, he was coldly distant and physically intimidating. Not only was her new neighbor a God that was good with his hands, he was also a grade-A jerk. Trapped on the same street, sharing the same space together, they’ve become entrenched in an addictive, ridiculous, never-ending game of insults and pranks that result in the destruction of two perfectly good homes.

The tension between them is as thick as the walls of their houses are thin. Roman’s touch burned like fire even when his words were ice, and both of them will stop at nothing to make the other’s life hell.

In the midst of the pranks and the hate they harbor for each other, Olivia slowly pulls back the layers of the man next door and finds herself consumed with wanting to fix him and his past. When both enemies start to catch feelings for each other, Olivia finds herself hiding her own secrets, not wanting to lose another man in her life.

Lines are drawn. Strict rules put into place. But that doesn’t stop Olivia from wanting to save the quiet, broody man next door.

They say you’re supposed to love thy neighbor, but that was the furthest emotion she felt when thinking about Roman. Hate was all there was to their relationship. At the very least, that’s what she tried to tell herself.

Hate Thy Neighbor is a full length enemies to lovers standalone.

Review: Make Me Hate You by Kandi Steiner

Make Me Hate YouMake Me Hate You by Kandi Steiner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is going down as one of my favorites of 2020 and a top fav of mine from Kandi Steiner! BRAVO to this author for writing a trope with sticky situations with such tact and finesse. It made me question life’s decisions – decisions we make as humans. It reminded me that humans are not perfect, nor were we meant to be.

Not only does K Steiner create characters with depth, but she writes their story so beautifully that I found myself sighing, swooning and highlighting every other paragraph! Tyler & Jasmine have a connection that is so real which stemmed from an early age. I was pulled into their magnetic tie from the Prologue and felt every bit of adolescent angst and young love as their story continued. It was almost as if 7 years never passed once they reunited, and although their banter and angst were apparent, the obvious chemistry between them never once stopped humming. I cheered every moment for these two!

You may question some of their decisions. You may not agree with how they approached things. But what I realized is that these two characters followed their hearts. They didn’t set out to maliciously hurt others nor did they ignore their actions or consequences. I cried tears of pain and joy for Tyler & Jasmine and will read their story again and again! Well done once again K Steiner!

*** READ MY FIVE STAR REVIEW HERE ***

 

 

 

Blurb:

Enemies to best friends and now lovers.

Maddox Coulter.

Was my enemy. Now my best friend.

You know him… Popular jock, rich enough to buy a town and a modern day casanova with a dirty smirk.

He’s every girl’s wet dream. But he wants me.

Maddox needs me.

One night of untamed passion has us dangling over the edge of something dangerous and it could forever break us.

Our hearts are on the line.

Maddox is keeping secrets.

I vowed to never give up on him but I’m not sure he’s the same man I fell in love with anymore.

I’m scared he’d leave my heart bleeding at his feet.

But worst, what if we go back to…

… hating each other?

 

 

 

 

 

About the Author:

Lylah James lives somewhere in Canada. She is usually pretty busy but she uses all her spare time to write. If she is not studying, sleeping, writing or working – she can be found with her nose buried in a good romance book, preferably with a hot alpha male.

Writing is her passion. The voices in her head won’t stop and she believes they deserve to be heard and read. Lylah James writes about drool worthy and total alpha males, with strong and sweet heroines. She makes her readers cry – sob their eyes out, swoon, curse, rage and fall in love. Mostly known as the Queen of cliffhanger and the #evilauthorwithablacksoul, she likes to break her readers’ hearts and then mend them again.

Synopsis

 

“Cross one, cross all.”

 

That’s the Brayshaw way. 

 

She should have realized this before sliding into our world with secrets too big to bury.
She didn’t and now the target is on her back.

 

The day her lies came crashing down, I should have forced her out.
Instead, I locked her in, and with the promise I would never be hers. 

 

I resisted, fought against us.
I caved. 

 

I tasted what became my newfound favorite flavor and fell hard for the little liar.

 

But then the depth of her treachery reveals itself, and with it a reminder.

 

Our town is a twisted place, and with truth comes trouble.

 

In the blink of an eye, my world is split at its core, and I’m faced with an impossible decision, one that leads to a single outcome…

 

Betrayal.
