Manic Monday - Piper Rayne - Release Blitz & Review

ManicMonday-SBPRBANNER-RB

PRManicMondayBookCover5x8_MEDIUM

Manic Monday, an all-new hilarious and romantic standalone from Piper Rayne, is LIVE!




The perfect man for me is a blood-sucking lawyer. #pfftwhatever

Been there.

Done that.

Burned the T-shirt.

I didn’t swear off all men after my divorce, but I sure as hell swore off anyone remotely like my ex. On the top of that list? Attorneys. Everyone knows they can’t be trusted.

Now that I’m back in Chicago, my focus is my daughter, my mom and me. I haven’t given up on finding my happily-ever-after, it’s just on hold—indefinitely.

Then I see Reed Warner again, and he weasels his way into every part of my life, not willing to take no for an answer.

In spite of my better judgment I can’t stop thinking about the way his designer suits fit his muscular frame, or the way his blue eyes seem to eat me up with every glance.

You know when you’re on a diet and even hummus seems irresistible? Reed is like the equivalent of chocolate ├ęclair and my willpower is fading fast.

The problem? Not only is he a lawyer…

He was the best man at my wedding.

4 Stars

Manic Monday is the first in the Charity Case series, and as I've come to expect from this writing duo, it was a thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable read. 

Victoria is a divorced single mother who has a lot on her plate.  Between working full time, studying, caring for her mother and daughter the last thing she has time for is a relationship.  Her ex left her with a lot of baggage, and self doubt!

Reed is honest, determined, driven, kind, caring, compassionate, honest and faithful.  He's alos a lawyer much like her ex and was the best man at her wedding.  Once Reed makes up his mind he is tenacious and is determined to get Victoria to give his a chance. 

Their connection and chemistry is not only realistic, but sweet and sexy.  I adored the banter this pair shares that is fun, flirty and argumentative. 

I look forward to more of the Charity Case series.

Meyah - Addison Jane - Release Blitz & Review







Title: Meyah
Series: The Club Girl Diaries #9
Author: Addison Jane
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 26, 2018





Meyah wasn’t the same girl she used to be.


She was becoming a woman. One who wasn’t afraid to speak up and stand her ground, refusing to go back to that girl who let the world walk all over her and break her down.


Her love for Hamlet, though. It gave her strength.


Meyah knew their relationship was never going to be easy.


When misunderstandings and bad decisions threw them off course, they would need to fight even harder to repair the cracks which had appeared. And even then, it was never going to be perfect.


But Meyah didn’t want perfect.


She wanted Ham.


He encouraged her to be herself, to fight for what she wanted. So when Meyah stumbled across the piece of herself which had always been missing, she couldn’t help but want to know more about this man she could finally call Dad.


Huntsman was dangerous, he was deadly, and there were people out there who would do anything to bring him to his knees. And Meyah was about to find herself right in their firing line.


Lines would be drawn.


Loyalties would be questioned.


And love was about to be tested like never before.

4.5 Stars 

I was so excited to get the conclusion to Ham and Meyah's story after reading Shake.  The previous title left us with so many unanswered questions, and this pair have quite a few secrets and misunderstandings to get past before they can find a happy ever after. 

This title is jam packed full of action, intrigue, suspense, danger and romance.  

Meyah is an amazing character, so endearing and has developed into a strong, feisty, resilient woman.  She's no longer the shy, timid girl, who lets other dictate and control her actions, she's come into her own!

Ham is just as protective, devoted and determined and despite his best intentions he needs to work to regain Meyah's trust. 

Once again I loved the connection and chemistry that Meyah and Ham share, that is just as strong as in the previous titles and the loves scenes are incredibly hot and steamy. 

After the discovery of Huntsman in the previous title, I was eager to find out more of this character, and Addison didn't disappoint.  Along with Huntsman, there was an addition of several new characters that I hope will have their stories told at some point in the future.

I will be eagerly awaiting more of Addison's work in the future.

Bound By Destiny - Ryan Michele - Release Blitz & Review



BOUND BY DESTINY (Ravage MC #5) by Ryan Michele is NOW LIVE!





Love knows no names—no bounds—sometimes you’re bound by destiny…

Micah’s choices and actions when he was young left him estranged from his family—the Ravage MC family. Older and wiser, it’s now one of his biggest regrets … along with pushing Emery away. 

Emery has been walking a tight rope for far too long. Everything has changed. Dealing with her near death experience, her brother’s return, and her parents problems have left her feeling very lost in a world she thought she knew. 

Except—sometimes when we are so lost we manage to find exactly where we should be.

Jacks didn’t mean for it to happen, but Emery slammed into him like a freight train pushing all the buttons he’d kept locked down for far too long. Jacks though, can’t get caught up in a game of who is the better man. Been there, done that, and lost in a big way. 

When everything changes, destiny is all we can hold onto. Emery finds herself caught between two very different men unable to keep her heart out of the mix. 

Sometimes we bleed for others—and sometimes the past, it just won’t let go.

Other times—some people walk away not allowing us to have a choice in the matter ...

Those are the times that hurt the most and cut the deepest.











4.5 Stars 

Bound By Destiny is the fifth title in the Ravage MC Bound series, and features Emery, Micah and Jacks.  It's a story full of intrigue, action, suspense and emotion.

Emery is a well developed, endearing character.  Having grown up in the MC lifestyle has ensured that she is mature beyond her years.  She's determined, strong and very rational and thoughtful, and not prone to drama or acting without thought. 

Both Jacks and Micah are amazing, engaging and complex characters and I don't envy the choices Emery has to make. 

I loved that we see so many of our previous favourite characters from both series' and their stories continuing to evolve and develop particularly the second generation of the Ravage MC. 

This is one of my favourite titles of this series, and I felt the story line was more similar to those of the original Ravage MC series.  I will be eagerly awaiting the next title in this series.

I was married to the most beautiful girl in the world, inside and out. We made it through basic training and a couple of specialized training schools, despite the time apart. I knew she was with me for the long haul. When we moved away from Texas and on to the next round of training, she never looked back. She squeezed my hand and told me as long as she had me and I had her everything would fall into place. It was always our thing. Maddie squeezing my hand or me squeezing hers. That unsaid reassurance both of us needed from time to time. When I was away from her, I of course missed her body—which she so graciously made sure I had plenty of pictures of—Thank you internet!—but I missed the way she squeezed my hand when I felt like I was struggling. I missed the way her eyes twinkled and turned super green when she saw me walking toward her. I missed the way her eyes turned dark green, almost brown when she was angry, and even how they turned blue when she was sad. I missed that gold ring she would get around her pupils on the “hazel days” as we called them. So yeah, I missed fucking her. But I also just missed her, and it was something not many of the guys understood.



The Pipeline, a seemingly endless chain of classes and schools across the country that I had to take over the next two years were easy in terms of our relationship, but hard as hell in terms of finishing each step and getting to the next. Maddie was able to be with me most of the time, and we got family housing. I felt like I was taking care of her while I was training. She kept writing. I didn’t want her to, at least not for money. I wanted her to write for fun. I swear she wrote all the time...unless she was watching those dumbass shows that make trauma medicine look like a joke. But she wrote a lot. Mostly random pieces in small online publications, but she said it gave her a sense of having something to do, and I couldn’t argue with that logic. It felt good to take care of my girl, though. So, I was always a bit torn but didn’t want to be that dude who looked like an asshole by telling his wife not to work. Growing up definitely wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.



There was a lot riding on my success in the PJ program. Maddie and I were kind of living school to school for a few months. If I failed, I’d be out and back to trying to decide what I wanted to do in the service. I wasn’t the only one who’d be starting all over again. We both would be. And, because I’m stubborn, I’d try to be a PJ again. I would’ve kept training and trying. I wanted to be a PJ more than anything in my life. For the first time, I knew my purpose was to love my wife and save people’s lives. Maddie tried to take a break from school for me while we spent a little over a year in New Mexico where I finished my Pararescue EMT/Paramedic and my Recovery Specialist courses. I wouldn’t let her though. I mean, she could’ve told me no. Maddie had no qualms about being independent. She was really cute, always thinking she would get her way. She ended up enrolling in school for two semesters in New Mexico. I still claim that as a point in the win column, even though it was only a couple of semesters. After that, they shipped us off to a new base in Arizona. I never thought I’d call Arizona home. But it sure as fuck beat that humid shit I was so used to in Louisiana. Maddie reenrolled in college while we settled in, and I continued my training with my unit for an eventual deployment. I was officially a PJ, and Arizona was home, for now. I had my wife. I had my passion. I was pretty fucking happy. It did scare me how badly I wanted to see some action overseas, though, and it outright terrified Mads.



It felt like years, but sooner rather than later, I was able to use my hard training. I was going to be more than a new recruit. I was going to do more than just train. I was going to implement skills very few people could.



I was going to war.



My first deployment was really hard on everyone. Myself included. Maddie was about to graduate college and there was nothing I could do to stop my deployment. In the military, you don’t get to call the shots. I wanted to be there for her. I wanted to be there to hug her, to celebrate with her. I wanted to be the man I was supposed to be. But, maybe I was. Maybe the man I was supposed to be could do both. I was sure as fuck going to try. There was nothing I could do to properly portray how much I would miss her smile in my life every day. She’d never understand how much I would worry about her. I tried to tell her. I tried to show her—in some of the dirtiest ways possible—that I wasn’t going anywhere. That she was mine. I was hers. War wouldn’t tear us apart. We wouldn’t be one of those statistics. Plus, the Air Force would be in and out of this conflict in no time.



The problem with my plan was that we weren’t in and out of the conflict in no time. When I enlisted, I knew there was a chance I’d go to war. I didn’t think it was likely, but I realized it was a possibility. I wasn’t a fucking moron. I also knew there was a chance I could very well die serving my country. That was a sacrifice I decided I was willing to make without consulting with my new wife. I never asked her how she felt about it. Later, I would learn to regret never asking her opinion. She might’ve told me how much she’d hurt without me. My little copilot, having to pilot life on her own. She always did a fine job, but I know now that she always wished I was there to keep her on course.



But when I’m honest with myself? I would’ve chosen the same anyway. Saving lives? That’s a feeling I’m unable to describe. Saving kids, being the one to save my brothers and sisters at war, knowing I could save the life of an innocent civilian? That’s what I was supposed to be. That was what I was always supposed to be, even before I knew it. I just hoped I didn’t lose the only woman I would ever love over my need to do something for the greater good.

It had been nice stateside, pretending war wasn’t looming in the background. I never thought it would actually happen, not to an extent where I would need to be deployed. Wars were a thing of the past, right? But, when terrorists attacked Americans on United States soil, it was only a matter of time before we got called to serve. That whole thing happened rather quickly. I went from being a pretty carefree, happily married young man, the man that loved coming home to my wife every night and fucking her in ways that only I knew how. I equally loved holding her hand during a movie night on the couch or having her crawl into my lap and go to sleep as I played video games. Life was easy. It was good. Life was unreal.



But life got real. Shit got real. Shit got real in a real big fucking hurry.



The day before my deployment snuck up on me, and before I knew it, I was facing months without my girl. I knew we’d be okay. We’d made it through plenty of long distance periods. But each one hurt just as much as the first time, and as time went on, each one hurt as bad as the worst times. I was better at hiding it than she was. She was so free with her emotions. I had always been pretty open with my emotions around her, too. But the closer deployment came, the more I began to try to turn a lot of my emotions off. I knew my training, while it was the best around, was nothing compared to the wounds I’d be seeing. I knew learning to close a body bag would be nothing like actually doing it with a lifeless body inside of it. I knew what war did to my friends who had been and come back. I thought if I started to shut down before I left, I would definitely be okay. The problem with that plan?



My beautiful, emotional, Maddie.





4 Stars
Flight Path is a unique romance, in the fact that the main couple Madelyn and Seth are already married, and in a long term relationship.  This pair are a beautiful couple, their love is true and sincere, despite their young age.   Their story is moving, emotional and at times heartbreaking, as they struggle to navigate life as a military family, dealing with the reality that is life with deployments.
Madelyn and Seth are incredibly endearing and relate-able.  For a debut novel Ms Addison has done an incredible job of writing a story that is both captivating and enthralling.
Anyone who is a fan of Cristin Harber's Titan series, will recognise the inclusion of Cash Garrison.
I've got to say the cover of Flightpath is incredibly beautiful, and I will be looking forward to more of Ms Addison's work in the future.
