NEW RELEASE

Delicate Lies
The Stonewater series #2
by Josephine Brierley

Dylan McGrath lives his life with the guilt he forces upon himself on a daily basis.

His narcissistic mother failed him constantly—her selfish expectations ruined him, leading him to an existence that was void of the love and nurturing that a parent should offer unreservedly.
Instead his life is marred with death, feeling loss of a great magnitude, drugs and alcohol his faith.
Relationships are not something he enters into freely, real intimacy not something he is capable of. The one night stands ease the pain.

Enter Zoe Garretson. Dirty mind, potty mouth and the kindest soul.
One woman who is willing to look his demons right in the eye, and face them head on. She reminded him of every good day he’d lived, though they were few.
Zoe becomes lost in Dylan, the kind of lost that can make you feel found. She yearns to show him that love is the ultimate high. Show him how a definitive kiss could open his heart and lighten his darkness. She longs to remind him of the magic that exists in life.

Could he open his heart to someone that is willing to give hers with no limitations at all?

One great lie, two big hearted people, three lingering weeks.

Delicate Love (The Stonewater series #1)

Life has dealt some heavy blows to Mackenzie Tillar. Bullied as a child, and no one to turn to, the one person, who was meant to protect her, to raise her, and surround her with unconditional love, had let her down. Kenzie learnt to deal with life in her own promiscuous way. Until that one fateful night when she’d met Sam, now she was contemplating breaking the very rules she had instigated.

For Samuel Edwards, being orphaned at a very young age meant that he found his own way in life. He lives it as he pleases, no room for relationships, no belief in love. It was never a part of his life. He’d never craved it, and never missed it. Until one night when he meets his match with Kenzie, she has the same rules, same fears.

They are both void of love, both not even looking for anything else.
Fate brings them together, and thirty-six questions ignite a spark in them both.
Could thirty-six questions lead to love? It was an experiment worth exploring.

Now they are playing a game, a game that suggests more, but is it more than they have bargained for?

** This book is Part 1 in a series, but is a stand-alone. There is no cliffhanger.
**This book contains some sexual content and disturbing situations. Over 18 years recommended.’

BLP REVIEW of Delicate Love

I have to say that I was captivated by this story from the off.. The book was well written, the characters very likable, the premise was interesting, the connection between our leading couple was obvious and believable from the get go and the slow build to their friendship/relationship/whatever-you-want-to-call-it kept me engaged throughout. I didn’t want to put my kindle down, even when I had to….

Samuel Edwards is on a weekend trip with some buddies with the aim of getting away from work and having some fun. Mackenzie Tillar is moving back to her hometown and is on an overnight stop when she heads to a bar for a few drinks. Neither do relationships and they don’t believe in love. A one night stand is all they are looking for when they fall into their shared night at the beginning of the book but fate has a very different idea in mind for this pair.

I loved the 36 questions. Both characters had had a rough time growing up, each experiencing their own share of heartbreak and loss that shaped their lives and gave them the thoughts and beliefs that they had when they first met. Finding out more about both Sam and Mackenzie through the answers to the questions and the thoughts they both had every time they ran into each other as well as the spark, attraction and feelings these meetings brought out led to an fantastic read.

The story takes place over a number of months and though it was a relatively short period of time, things didn’t feel rushed. There was a slow burn to their friendship and an intense insight into the other that isn’t usually found until you’ve known a person for a while. During the time that they are getting to know each other there are a few hitches that make it seem as if any chance of them becoming more than friends could be knocked on the head – trust, faith and belief are in short supply at points and things happen that are quite unexpected that have an impact, both good and bad, on the couple..

This book would have been a 5* (rather than 4.5*) for me but for Mackenzie’s attitude and reluctance to take a chance on Sam even when it’s obvious he is looking for something more and is serious about her. Don’t get me wrong, I got that things had been difficult for her but I just wished she’d have been more willing to let go of the past a little quicker; however, that didn’t detract from my love of the story or how much I liked her character overall.

There was a good supporting cast made up of Sam and Mackenzie’s friends and family. Some real characters in there and I’m guessing that these guys and gals are gonna be featured as heavily in future books.

This is the first book by Jo Brierley that I’ve read (but I know that it’s definitely gonna be a reread for me going forward) and I’m looking forward to more in this series already! If you haven’t yet picked up this fab read, do it now – you won’t be disappointed.

About the Author

Salty hair, sandy toes, lips too often sipping on white wine, I’m a Bali addict.

Now living on my favourite island, you can usually find me sitting at my favourite table, writing, people watching or gazing at the amazing ocean. Chillidog, our rescue pup, is usually at my feet or running amuck on the beach. I enjoy nothing more than a chilled Pinot Grigio and some sexy Luke Bryan tunes in the background.

Hubby and I sold everything and ran away from the kids….it’s ok they’re old enough to look after themselves! Now, I want to share with you my love of Bali, its people and their culture, and also entice you with my romantic reads. They are steamy, sexy and fun, filled with real-life tales and characters that you’ll fall in love with.

My writing journey began after I was diagnosed and successfully treated for Breast Cancer in 2012. It was my way of sharing my story after so many women had asked what I’d endured. Along with real facts, there is a fictional tale of love. A young woman finding her way, and discovering she can be loved despite the scars that mark her body.

With moderate success, and constant encouragement I have continued to write.

In 2015, Delicate Love, was released with the follow on Delicate Lies to be released 30th May 2017. The Stonewater Series will comprise of four books, each a standalone in their own right. Delicate Lust and Delicate Life are to follow. My characters have their faults, but the love they find is real.

Also in 2017, I’m hoping to work on a children’s book titled The Adventures of Chillidog.

Chillidog is a Bali dog who stumbled into our restaurant one night and is now one of the most spoilt dogs in Bali. We are both lucky to have found each other, a real character. He’s adventures will surely be entertaining and I can’t wait to share.

Living in Bali is a life long dream for us, we pinch ourselves everyday. If you’re ever visiting Sanur drop in and say hi, you’ll find our restaurant ‘Stiff Chilli’ on Semawang beach in Sanur, Bali.

RELEASE BLITZ ~ The Demon Who Loved Me (Big Bad Bite Series #4) by Jessie Lane

 
 
Title: The Demon Who Loved Me
Series: Big Bad Bite Series #4
Author: Jessie Lane
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release: May 28, 2017

 
 


 
 
 

He’s a gambling man…

One brunette bombshell with a devious mind and a potty mouth has thrust Kent smack dab in the middle of where he never wanted to be—his family. He’s spent most of his life avoiding his familial responsibilities, especially the one that required him to join the Ninth Circle Council—the demon society’s equivalent of judge, jury, and executioner. Then one lost bet with a little Amazon flips his entire life upside down. With worries about retaliation from the remnants of a rogue pack of wolves in Germany, he doesn’t have time to deal with his family, or his obsession with Chloe Demos.

And she’s the biggest risk he’ll ever take…

After her mother’s death, Chloe’s world crashes down around her. A secret Amazonian heritage. Aunts and a long lost brother she never knew about. Supernatural beings. With all of the sudden changes, she’s decided it’s time to step out from behind her façade of an air-headed, materialistic bimbo and show her sisters she truly does love them—she only hates their wardrobes. What better way to show she cares about her family than to help prove someone close to one of them is innocent of the bogus murder charges from some ridiculous council? Chloe has no scruples about calling in the marker the demon Kent owes her in order to do just that. It’s only too bad she’s underestimated Kent’s intelligence, and his playboy charm.

 
 

 
 

 
 
 



BLP REVIEWS

Gods, how I love a well written PNR story and Jessie Lane has given us another fantastic read in the Big Bad Bite series with The Demon Who Loved Me. Though some of the scenes in the first half of the book crossed with Walk on The Striped Side, the second book in the series that was Gage and Elena’s story, it never lost my interest and it was entertaining to see what had happened in that book from another character’s POV.

The Demon Who Loved Me was funny, hot, engaging, had a touch of mystery & some crime solving and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Neither Kent nor Chloe were looking for any kind of serious relationship, hell, our heroine wasn’t looking for anything from a member of the opposite sex having been let down previously.
The chemistry and attraction between this pair was obvious to them both from their first encounter (which we saw initially in WoTSS) and watching our heroine try to avoid, outsmart and one up the demon who was/wasn’t stalking her (you can make your own mind up on that one!) was entertaining.

I love Gage and Elena (and I’m totally on board with her very rational fear of spiders!! 😉 ) but if I’m being totally honest, I would have liked just a little more time with Kent and Chloe together, getting to know each other (and not only in the biblical sense!), as at certain points it didn’t feel that this book was totally theirs – which very possibly had something to do with there being so much going on in the story arc / timeline crossover between stories – but in saying that, none of that dampened my interest or engagement in the book.

Ms Lane gives us fun storylines, smoking hot sexy times, likable and amusing characters and these elements all add up to a really great read that I would most certainly recommend. I cannot wait for more in this fab series!

Excerpt
 
I slipped out of bed and padded across the hall, stopping in the doorway. My chest tightened at the sight before me.
 
Richard, tall, broad, and bare chested, cradling his daughter close, and dancing with her. She was tucked high on his chest, with his cheek resting on her head. Her tiny hand was encased inside his, and he held her protectively. No doubt his humming was soothing to her, rumbling through his chest and lulling her into peace.
 
Tears filled my eyes watching them. The cold-hearted man I first knew was gone and replaced by this protector who would do anything to care for his child. To care for me.


BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy

I grew to love Richard in The Contract, even though he started out as a real unlikable arse!
Seeing how life with Katy softened him and how she became his world was great.

Now in The Baby Clause we got to see yet another side to the man who never thought he’d find love never mind a wife and family! His concern about not being a good parent was sad but Mr VanRyan should have learned by now that sometimes he isn’t always right and he should always listen to his wife!

Sweet, fun and with some real heart warming scenes, TBC is a great addition to The Contract series and a must read for those who enjoyed Richard and Katy’s story from the start.

Well written, with feeling, warmth and loads of cute daddy and baby bonding, this is a fabulous wee read from one of my favourite go-to authors, Melanie Moreland

RELEASE BOOST ~ Sexy Motherpucker (A Bad Motherpuckers Novel) by Lili Valente

Genre: Steamy Romantic Comedy/Hockey Romance

Release Date: May 22, 2017

When the family dog trots in with my diaphragm in its mouth—in front of my date, his parents, and his adorable little girl—you would think I’d hit rock bottom.
 
WRONG.
 
Let’s back this up a sec…
 
Brendan Daniels is the sexiest man alive. The captain of the Badger’s NHL team is also clever, kind, funny, and was my good friend…until we cruised out of the friend zone one weekend with a red-hot fling. Come Monday morning, I wanted to keep riding the Big O train to happy town, but Brendan wanted someone who was “stepmom” material.
 
A.K.A, not me, apparently.
 
The problem? I’m crazy in love with him and his daughter. So when he asks me to be his pretend girlfriend for a long weekend with his former in-laws, I say yes. We’re still friends, after all, and friends don’t let friends fake it alone.
 
***
 
Laura Collins is the last woman I should be thinking about taking in the back seat of my car, in the woods behind my in-laws’ house, or in a hotel room where we’re sharing one very small, very squeaky bed.
 
I need a steady, stable influence for my daughter, not a fling with this too wild, too young, too impulsive red head. So what if she’s beautiful and intense and passionate and has the biggest heart I’ve ever known?
 
I don’t want to fall in love. I really don’t. The whole “pretend girlfriend” thing was supposed to solve my problems, buy me a little more time.
 
But when it comes to Laura?

Hell, maybe I’m just not cut out for faking it.

 BLP REVIEW  ~  Tracy 

I’m absolutely loving this series!!! Lili Valente has me hooked on these hot as hell hockey players!! 😉

Sexy Motherpucker, Laura & Brendan’s story was so, so good.
The story was laugh out loud funny, sweet, a touch frustrating at times (man, this pair were crazy hot for each other but neither seemed able to take the lead for a while!) and heartwarming. I loved watching this pair being involved in each others lives while not ‘being involved’ even though the two of them would have been better off admitting their feelings and saved them both some lonely nights!

Brendan’s love and care for his daughter Chloe is lovely. The fact that Laura cares about the little girl too just adds to her appeal and makes her so much more likable. And as for Chloe herself, she was a cute wee character who had more common sense that the grownups at times! 😀

It was great to catch up with Justin & Libby as well as Brendan’s parents (and meet his ex in laws) and to get a little glimpse into Tanner & Dee’s book.
I love Lili’s writing and character development and I can’t wait for more in this series!

Sexy Motherpucker gets 5 well deserved stars in my opinion…

Going in Deep
(Billionaire Bad Boys, Book 4)
by Carly Phillips

Date of Publication: May 9, 2017


Blurb

He isn’t Mr. Nice Guy…

Julian Dane thought he’d hit rock bottom — until he met a woman (isn’t that what they all say?). He used her and broke her heart. Now he wants to turn things around but the damage he dealt stands in his way.

Kendall Parker’s unique issues have made it hard to live a normal life. Very few people understand her and she trusts even less … but she believed in Julian once, and he only betrayed her.

Now Julian is back — a new man — and determined to win Kendall’s heart. But this reformed bad boy just might find that Going in Deep is harder than it looks.

Billionaire Bad Boys: Rich, Powerful and Sexy as hell.

All Billionaire Bad Boys Novels stand alone!

 


BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy

Love reconnecting with Julian and Kendall in Going in Deep…. was great seeing how they had both changed but discovering that the connection was still there!!

Reading the first couple of books in the Billionaire Bad Boys series I really disliked Julian and, being honest, wasn’t a huge fan of Kendall but having discovered more about them and kinda understanding what drove them to the actions the carried out I slowly came round in my opinion of them both.

Both leading characters had some pretty hefty demons and baggage and when they were together initially they were probably the wrong combination but reading their story you could see how they were miserable apart and that going in with all of the information they really needed a relationship between them could work.

I was a little disappointed in Kade and Lexi and their reaction to Kendall for a fair bit of the book – even though at times they thought they were doing things for the best!!

Enjoyed catching up with the previous 3 couples and watching Kendall and Julian try to get things back on track.

Carly Phillips gave us a great end to the series with this book ~ 4.5*

D’you ever watch a film and have it leave an impression on you for a while afterwards or read a book that you revisit in your head for days after you’ve finished reading…. THAT’S what Freya Barker’s books do to me every time; they leave me with lasting impressions and a whole helluva lot of feels!!

A Change in Tide is the first story in a new and, what promises to be an interesting series from Ms B.
In this book we meet Mia and Jared. Jared is a recently retired ice hockey player who has moved to the lake to escape the glare and intrusion of the media and get used to living a different kind of life to that he’s been used to. He was a bit of a player but has realised that this is no longer how he wants to live his life, partly because he’s getting older but also due to changes in his family circumstances. I really liked the guy! He was unapologetic for the life he had led and was genuinely interested in changing his ways.

Mia was a real contradiction once we got to know her… A quiet woman, she has sequestered herself away in her cottage, with nigh on no contact with the outside world – with the exception of her friend and the therapist she attends. Terrible nerves, panic attacks and the fear of being outside (apart from walks with her dog, working on her small garden and her valued time on the lake) has led to Mia cutting herself off and that’s just they way she likes it… or so she has led herself to believe.
When faced with Jared and an unusual situation when out on the lake one day she finds that maybe the life she’s been leading isn’t entirely what she needs any longer. Over a short period of time her life takes some unexpected turns that throw more than a few bumps in her up until now quiet life and reading about how she copes and deals with these events made for exceptional reading!

Mia’s fear and anxiety was palpable and her emotional roller-coaster ride with life, and Jared, played out with such depth. Freya’s writing conveys feelings and emotions to such an extent that, for me anyway, it’s like watching a movie reel in my head that’s showing the whole story in full technicolour.

I hate spoilers and you get the gist of the book from the blurb so I’m not gonna say much more about the storyline.

What I am gonna say is that Freya Barker has an immense talent that is terribly underrated.
She is now one of my top 3 favourite authors and an auto 1-C buy (I don’t even need to read the blurb!). I adore the fact that her characters are generally a little older, have emotional (and sometimes mental) baggage, they have lived a life that hasn’t always been easy and through their books they face new & difficult challenges and issues that could understandably send them running in the opposite direction but their strength of character and determination sees them face their fears, whether that’s their first choice or not, and makes them all the more endearing to us!

Packed with great relatable characters, main and supporting, drama, humour, heat and so so many feels, if you haven’t yet picked up a Freya Barker book you are seriously missing out! A Change in Tide would be a great place to start as it is a new series that you can dive into, but in my humble opinion, go back to the Cedar Tree series that was the start of her writing and begin there – I promise you won’t regret it!

Book 1 in the new Northern Lights series gets 5 tide changing stars!

When faced with Jared and an unusual situation when out on the lake one day she finds that maybe the life she’s been leading isn’t entirely what she needs any longer. Over a short period of time her life takes some unexpected turns that throw more than a few bumps in her up until now quiet life and reading about how she copes and deals with these events made for exceptional reading!

Mia’s fear and anxiety was palpable and her emotional roller-coaster ride with life, and Jared, played out with such depth. Freya’s writing conveys feelings and emotions to such an extent that, for me anyway, it’s like watching a movie reel in my head that’s showing the whole story in full technicolour.

I hate spoilers and you get the gist of the book from the blurb so I’m not gonna say much more about the storyline.

What I am gonna say is that Freya Barker has an immense talent that is terribly underrated.
She is now one of my top 3 favourite authors and an auto 1-C buy (I don’t even need to read the blurb!). I adore the fact that her characters are generally a little older, have emotional (and sometimes mental) baggage, they have lived a life that hasn’t always been easy and through their books they face new & difficult challenges and issues that could understandably send them running in the opposite direction but their strength of character and determination sees them face their fears, whether that’s their first choice or not, and makes them all the more endearing to us!

Packed with great relatable characters, main and supporting, drama, humour, heat and so so many feels, if you haven’t yet picked up a Freya Barker book you are seriously missing out! A Change in Tide would be a great place to start as it is a new series that you can dive into, but in my humble opinion, go back to the Cedar Tree series that was the start of her writing and begin there – I promise you won’t regret it!

Book 1 in the new Northern Lights series gets 5 tide changing stars!

Freya Barker inspires with her stories about ‘real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy. She is the author of the Cedar Tree Series and the Portland, ME, novels.
 
Freya is the recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None,” and is a finalist for the 2016 Kindle Book Awards for “From Dust”. She currently has two complete series and three anthologies published, and is working on two new series; La Plata County FBI—ROCK POINT, and Northern Lights. She continues to spin story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!

Truth Alan Reacher was a biker. He was a bladesmith. What he was not, was a fool.

The moment he walked in on his girl screwing his cousin on his bike, he does the only thing he can do.

He ditches the bike seat—and the girl—riding right out of her life without a backwards glance.

That is until he’s forced to attend the marriage of his cousin to his cheating ex-girlfriend. The only bright spot of the entire thing was watching some chick go off on the groom—the groom’s ex-fiancé—right in the middle of the bouquet toss.

***

Verity Ruthann Cassidy was supposed to be here today attending this wedding as the bride, not watching the festivities as a guest from the chairs she’d painstakingly purchased covers for while her fiancé—now her ex-fiancé—screwed around on her with another woman.

The icing on the wedding cake that she refuses to eat? She’s forced to attend the wedding due to her mother being the wedding planner.

However, the night doesn’t turn out quite the way she expects it due to the hot-as-hell biker sitting in the chair directly beside her. The man gave one hell of a speech during the reception that sounded like something that could have come straight out of her own mouth, and she enjoyed every single second of it.

***

Thrown together under similarly lousy circumstances, the two newly single jilted former lovers of the happy couple decide to go to Vegas on what was to be Verity’s honeymoon trip.

One thing leads to another, and the next thing they know, their night has gone from a celebration of being single to a marriage—to each other.

Verity and Truth now have to figure out if everything that happens in Vegas should stay in Vegas.

Dear gods, what is Lani Lynn Vale doing to me?? This series has me hooked to the point that when I pick up one of the books and everything else stops – quite literally, nothing else bar reading gets done and I finish these books in pretty much one sitting!

Son of a Beard is the third book in the Dixie Wardens Rejects. In my opinion the series gets better with each book and I loved reading about Truth and Verity. This pair had me intrigued from the start and I loved seeing how things progressed for them and how things began to change when they finally realised that what happened in Vegas, does on occasion, definitely not stay there!!

I have to admit at times I wanted to strangle our bearded biker for his pig-headedness when it came to Very – attempting to chase her off to keep her safe even if that’s what neither of them truly wanted – but most of the time I was taken with how much he cared for her. I did wish he would open up to her a little earlier but when we found out about his ‘secret’ I kinda got why he was slow to tell her everything. Verity has no filter and at times doesn’t know when to STFU which leads to some crazy scenes. She wasn’t afraid to stand up to anyone when it came to her ‘husband’ and I liked that she wasn’t cowed by anyone, including Truth.

Well written with a good storyline. There was some angst, lets face it, they may be ‘good guys’ but the DW Rejects have all lead a pretty interesting life so there’s always gonna be some kind of trouble waiting round the corner at times I’m sure! As ever the connection and attraction between our 2 leads is hot and heavy, but there was also humour and loads of feels. Catching up with characters from previous books and series in LLV reads is always fun and in Son of a Beard this was no different.

This is another excellent instalment is what is fast becoming one of my favourite series and I can’t wait for Sean’s story in book 4
(I’m Only Here For The Beard)!!

I’m giving this fab book 5 thoroughly deserved stars!!
