A Four StarReview of LIFE’S TURNED UPSIDE DOWN by Anne Stone

I cannot tell you how thrilled I was to return to the Alvarez family and the compassion and support that fills their lives. This family loves hard and is there for one another through the ups and downs. But even greater is their ability to open their hearts and lives to others, embracing those around them and loving them unconditionally.

In this third installment of The Show Me Series, we are given a greater glimpse into the life of Gabriella Alvarez and the contempt she holds for Dr. Ashton Holder, a doctor in the family practice with little bedside manner. They say there is a fine line between love and hate, and sometimes the passion behind the emotion gives way to something greater—especially when there is understanding and reason thrown in.

In this case, Gabriella must come to terms with the fact her family has forgiven the man for his offending behavior and determine whether she, too, can find forgiveness and acceptance for the man. As she discovers more about the good doctor’s past, she begins to understand his behaviors and reasons for his guarded interactions So as the two begin to put their differences aside in order to work together, they discover more about the true passions that stir their hearts and the reasons behind their guarded natures. And as Gabriella discovers more truths about Ashton’s upbringing, she must decide if uncovering the truth is worth losing a relationship.

Although this was a bit slower than the first two installments, I still loved the characters and the growth they both faced. This story was about finding forgiveness and putting the past aside, about learning to tear down the walls and embrace the present in order to harness the enjoyment of a future. Anne Stone has continued to bring to life characters with flaws and faults with whom readers can identify. An enjoyable story about an amazing family. So Anne…when do we get Joe’s story?

Synopsis:

Gabriella Alvarez is the youngest of the Alvarez family.  She’s watched her best friend marry her brother and another brother find love.  Deep down, she’s looking for love, but she can’t quite shake the college sweetheart that broke her heart.

Dr. Ashton Holder works for the famous Alvarez practice.  He and Gabriella have always clashed—she continues to see him only has the rough-edged doctor with no bedside manner, but he’s really made strides to put this image behind him.

When Gabriella discovers a secret from Ashton’s past, though, she does her best to help him uncover something that will change his life forever, but a misunderstanding between them rocks him to the core.  When he finally uncovers the secret, he must learn to put his past aside and try and move on with a future willed with hope and dreams.

Life’s Turned Upside Down is the third book in Anne Stone’s Show Me series.

A Review of QUIET LOVE by HELENA RAC

QuietLove_TourBadge

In Helena Rac’s second novel, best friends become roommates and discover through sloppy towel tucks, stargazing adventures, and a very sexy photo shoot that sometimes love can be found in the most unlikely place: right in front of you. Fans of Christina Lauren’s Dark Wild Night won’t want to miss this exciting new release published by Tryst Books!

 

A5star Review of QUIET LOVE by

Helena Rac

“…but even quite love can become explosive. Right now, the way I feel…is nothing short of fireworks.”

Having been blessed to be introduced to Helena Rac with her debut novel of Sweet Bliss, which was a delicious and delightful read filled with humor, wit, and tantalizing moments between the characters, I was thrilled to be asked to review her second release. Although these books are very different from one another, Helena managed to capture a beautiful image of a story that changed the lens through which her characters looked in order to bring to light a deep and passionate love.

Both character were extremely well-developed and complex in their own right, pulling readers into the friendship and the journey the two traveled to reveal the truth that sometime people are meant to come into your lives, that paths are meant to be crossed for a reason. Readers will be charmed by the fiercely independent and direct personality that is Rose. She does not apologies for who she is, even though she realizes she may be more than some can handle. She owns her flaws and embraces her strengths, and she uses humor to defuse situations. She even realizes how petty her decisions can be as she wears her “Queen of First Dates” crown proudly. But there is an underlying fear that makes her real and a deep ability to be reflective, allowing readers to find a connection and to see the depth Daniel sees in her.

And Daniel? Helena has given her readers a compassionate beta male who knows his heart but fears rejection. It is the charm that shines through as readers see the man behind the camera, the man who shares his feeling and thoughts about his best friend and the fear he feels should this love be unrequited. It is his passion and the way he shows his love that pulls at the heartstrings of readers and has them rooting for him. But even more, it is the provocative eye, the transparent nature, and the unique ability he has to see Rose the way others can’t. *Swoon*

So once again, Helena crafted a delightful and inspiring story full of humor, intimate details, relatable characters, and enough of the daily reality of love to bring to the foreground an explosive story of a quiet love.

Rose knows true love is out there somewhere; she just has to try hard enough to find it. That’s become more complicated, though, since her best friend Daniel has moved in with her after being away for two years. Somehow thoughts of him keep getting in the way, making her morning showers a little too hot for comfort. If only he’d see…

Excerpt:

The night is nothing short of perfect. The air is warm, there’s barely any wind, and the moon is young, so the sky is dark, laced with thousands of stars. We find our spot along the beach, well away from the other stargazers, and set down our sleeping bags, a couple of blankets, and our cooler.
Our eighties playlist is playing softly in the background while we enjoy the night. Daniel takes photos, and every so often he shows me an image he’s caught on camera. I’m in awe. He really is amazing. The way he sees the world is so different from how most of us do – angles and frames and visions that capture the beauty of everything that surrounds us, including the stars. Even in the dark, I can see a twinkle in his eyes, that same look he has when he picks up his camera. Confident. In charge. Sexy.
I squeeze in between Daniel and the telescope and lean into the eyepiece. I’m instantly fascinated by what I see. The star flickers like it’s dancing in the sky. There are hues of red and orange and gold, and it sparkles like a gem.
I’m equally distracted because Daniel is standing right behind me. He hasn’t moved an inch. His chest presses against my back, and I tense for a moment, unsure of his intent. His scent makes its way to me, and my eyes flutter closed for an instant. I inhale and savor the way he makes me feel. My initial tense reaction gives way to a new one – one that confuses me and excites me all at the same time. Goosebumps cover my arms, and my breath hitches in my throat. I can’t help but shiver from the sparks that travel through my body.
His response is not what I expect. Yet, even though I’m afraid to admit it to myself, it’s quite possibly what I hoped for. He wraps his arms around me so they criss-cross just above my waist. He starts to rub my arms, warming my skin and melting the goosebumps – and my whole body. My mind is screaming, Do not cross the friendship boundary! No good can come of it. Thank goodness for my sensible brain. Too bad I don’t always listen to it.
On that thought, I can’t help but relax into him. His strong, lean frame envelops me, and I’m aware of the contours of his body and the heat that radiates between us. I nestle into his shoulder and look up at the stars above us. He buries his nose in my hair and inhales deeply. Here, away from the city lights, it seems as though it’s just Daniel and me and our newfound closeness.
“Hey, there’s a shooting star.” I point to where it’s trailing across the sky. “Did you see it?”
“Hope you made a wish,” he whispers in my ear, and I swear his lips graze my skin. I shiver again, unable to control my reaction.

Synopsis:

From debut author Helena Rac, a sassy, sexy comic tale of second-chance romance and the many uses of icing. Tessa loves cupcakes. They’re tasty and comforting, and they’ve made her bakery a success. Men, on the other hand, are unreliable jerks who are bound to break her heart. Even if they’re hot enough to melt her frosting. Tessa is smitten with Luke after a less than graceful encounter on the streets of Chicago, and fate keeps reuniting them. She’s certain he’d be delicious in bed, but there’s just one problem: Tessa’s sworn off long-distance romances, and Luke lives in London. Besides, he’s proven himself to be bad news. Although Tessa’s sexy stranger swears to set aside his player ways after she carries out sweet revenge, she’s far too smart to believe in happily-ever-afters. Luke will need to use every weapon in his arsenal – including a spatula or two – to convince Tessa they’re meant to be together.

PROVOCATIVE by Lisa Renee Jones is LIVE!

LRJreleasebanner

Provocative (White Lies Book One) by Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: April 18th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Provocative Final Border 4.07.17 PM

Book one in the sexy and intense new White Lies duet by Lisa Renee Jones!

There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.

The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for her.

About MORE THAN A FEELING:

From the award-winning author of TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT comes the final story in her red-hot Rock Star Romance series, about a loner rocker finding his perfect duet.

When Cooper Hood left Snowberry, Montana ten years ago, he swore he’d never go back to the town that painted him with the same brush as his addict mother. But right in the middle of his band’s national tour he gets a call to come home: his mom’s got a whopper of a secret to reveal.

Daisy Charbonneau’s in trouble. The talent she hired for her resort’s annual Huckleberry Festival just bailed on her, and she’s desperate to find a replacement act. Luck turns her way when she discovers her high school crush is back in town—and he happens to be a rock star.

As they work together, a crush deepens into so much more, but who falls in love in two weeks?

Especially when Cooper’s never coming back to town, and Daisy’s never going to leave it.

A 5starReview of MORE THAN A FEELING by Erika Kelly

From the beginning, author Erika Kelly captured me with her realistic portrayal of a small-town boy who made it big in the music industry as a member of Blue Fire. As she carefully weaved the story of a young man who had lived such an unstable childhood, feeling rejected from the entire town, feeling as if he was not good enough for anyone, Cooper Hood embraced the life a Rockstar. Women knew nothing of his past, and partying kept him busy. But when he returns to his hometown to meet his mother and learn the truth about his father, his heart and his head find themselves at war when he comes face to face with the one person he has tried to forget.

Daisy Charbonneau was the girl who had captured his heart long ago, the girl who had been the “light to his dark, the pure to his filth.”  So when their paths cross, his heart can’t help but begin to beat again. But Cooper has no desire to stay in Snowberry. He is there to find out the truth from his mother, help her with the house, and simply secure a band for the next leg of the tour. He doesn’t have time to even think about a relationship—even if his heart seems to want something else. Yet, as Daisy and Cooper end up working together to support one another with their projects, the two can’t help but become close. However, when insecurities rear their ugly heads for both parties involved, communication fails and hearts can be broken.

As a newcomer to this series, I cannot say that I was lost or confused by this last installment. In fact, I found myself completely drawn into the group of musicians and can’t wait to go back to the beginning and see how each member of the band found the one person to compliment their life. Erika Kelly is an incredibly talented writer who built complex characters with realistic insecurities and problems that allowed them to show their vulnerability and flawed humanity. Weaving these characters into a detailed and complex situation, adding twist and turns to the secret behind Cooper’s father, allowed for an intriguing story that captivated this reader. This story is a hit that should go platinum.

EXCERPT:

Daisy’s fingers trailed across his shoulders as she breezed past him. Her warm vanilla and honey scent swirled in her wake, and he felt like that boy all over again who’d lived in a state of hyperawareness around her. The boy who’d noticed the way her dark hair pooled onto the desk as she’d hunch forward to write, her fingers curled around a pencil. The way the tendons in her neck strained when she’d hit and held a high note. Her burst of laughter in the music room had made him stop whatever he’d been doing just to witness her joy.

He’d hoarded all those images, those sacred moments, to pull out and comfort him as he lay alone in the dark woods, waiting for his home to be safe enough to go back inside.

She would never know it, but she’d been his saving grace.

Taking her seat across from him, she set two little pots on the table. Her vivid blue eyes sparkled in the candlelight. “Try this.” She held a spoon out to him.

Letting her feed him was just too damn intimate, so he took it from her and fed himself. Creamy dark chocolate filled his senses. “Mousse?” Although it was denser, the chocolate more velvety. Richer. “It’s good.”

“It’s a Pot de Crème.” She scooped another mound for herself. Turning the spoon upside down, she brought it to her mouth, closing her eyes when her tongue touched the chocolate. She moaned, and her tongue swept across her bottom lip.

Desire surged through him, and he couldn’t help wondering if she’d look like that in bed. If she’d go all slack and dreamy-eyed when he sucked a nipple into his mouth.

His blood rose at the image of Daisy naked beneath him, back arching, her hands digging into his hair, holding him to her as if she never wanted him to go away.

She opened her eyes and licked the damn spoon. “I had my mom make it just for you.” The silky fabric of her shirt draped over her breasts, accentuating their round fullness. Desire pulsed through him.

Jesus, would you stop already?

“Let’s try this one.” She slid the edge of her fork into the cake, a cream-covered strawberry sliding out. “It’s my favorite.” The Montana sapphire studs glittered in her ears, and her lush mouth curved into a smile. His dick went hard.

He accepted the fork, but even when the cake and cream hit his tongue he couldn’t taste a thing. Because the only thing in his mind, heart, and body was the primal, urgent need to taste her.

All that teenage longing came roaring back. He wanted her more than ever. And not because she was beautiful and had a body his hands were dying to explore, but because every single cell in his body reacted to her. Wanted her. Yearned for her.

And this was why he’d never come back to Snowberry. He didn’t want to yearn for the things he couldn’t have. Didn’t want to wait for his mother to give him a crumb of her attention. Didn’t want to be around these people who’d only ever looked at him with disgust.

“What do you think? Delicious?” Daisy’s voice yanked him out of the negativity.

And he was damn glad. Because his past didn’t matter anymore. He was a man now. He’d made his way in the world. And he had a chance to be that man around Daisy. His gaze on her mouth, he said, “Hell, yes.”
