RELEASE BLITZ – Absolving Blue () by Freya Barker

Title: Absolving Blue
Series: On Call #4

Author: Freya Barker


Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 10, 2020
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

For long-time Durango Fire Department EMT, Ava ‘Blue’ Navarro, her teammates at Station 3 represent a family more loyal than her own.
However, when patients start dying on her watch, she draws the attention of local law enforcement. In particular the smooth-talking detective she’s successfully evaded for years, fearing he might stir up her quiet existence.
Detective Tony Ramirez considers himself a likable guy, which is why the perpetual cold shoulder from the athletic blonde first responder is confusing.
Now he finds himself in charge of a murder investigation that threatens to shake his world both personally and professionally. A situation that won’t earn him any brownie points.
When medical examiner, Calder Stonewall, is called in to assist, it only seems to throw more suspicion Blue’s way, and Tony has to pull out all the stops to prove her innocence while securing her heart.

“I really hate this,” she says when I lift my head.
“I must be losing my touch, then,” I joke, and she slaps my chest.
“Not that, you idiot. I hate being weak.”
“Now who’s being an idiot?” I lightly shake her. “If you sprained your ankle, would you think it weak to see a doctor? Do you think the people you tend to on a daily basis are weak?” When she reluctantly shakes her head, I push my point home. “So how’s this any different? We’re just talking about another part of you that needs some healing. Shit, if you think that makes you weak, you’re calling every cop in Durango a pussy. Wait ‘til I tell the guys.”
“You wouldn’t,” she snaps, her eyes spitting fire.
“If you keep spouting that nonsense, I might.”





BLP REVIEW – Tracy

What can I say about Freya Barker?? She is without doubt one of my favourite authors though she is, IMHO, sadly under-acknowledged when it comes to how good she is at her craft!!

Her stories are touching, well written and filled with humour. Her characters are relatable, likeable and believable who, often times, have dealt with or are going through real life issues. Ms B also throws in spade loads of action, suspense, twists and turns and one helluva lot of heat and passion!

I loved Ava/Blue. She’s always come across as a real tough, no nonsense cookie when we’ve met her in previous stories but learning about her past and that she wasn’t just as tough as she’d have other believe gave her a real sense of vulnerability that I could understand. Saying that, she’s still no shrinking violet and I was pretty sure at points that she was gonna stand fast in her determination to close out Tony Ramirez, even when it wouldn’t have been in her own best interest!! Thankfully that wasn’t the case for too long!

So, to Mr Ramirez. If I’m being honest he was one of these characters who previously I couldn’t quite decide if I really liked or not, he seemed at points to hit on any pretty female with a pulse and I couldn’t quite make up my mind if he was a real manwhore or just a bit of a ladies man! Well, I should never doubt Freya ‘cos, as ever, she made him likeable and turns out he was a really great guy who was there for Ava when she really needed him.

Their relationship, when it began, didn’t take too long to develop into something more and I was cool with that, both are a bit older and when you know what you’ve got is right, what’s the point in wasting time waiting?

The action, suspense and surprises all added to my enjoyment of the story, as did catching up with some of our old favourites from earlier books and previous series. I adored Tony’s dad, he was a great character.

Absolving Blue is another surefire hit in the On Call series and I can’t wait to find out what’s coming next from Ms Barker.

5*

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

LOVED this first book in the new series!!

Now, I know I pretty much say that about most books of Ms B’s that I read but the lady has a talent: she draws me in, makes her characters relatable (yeah, even when they are big, gruff, chip on their shoulder, bike riding blokes!!)
Her stories have heart, emotion, action and suspense as well as a whole shed load of heat and sexiness.

Edge of Reason was no different in this regard. Characters that we had met previously, so knew a little of their back story/history – which helped move the book along a little and get to the heart of their connection.
Trunk and Jaimie’s story was loaded with goings on that started in the third book in the On Call series by Freya (which was Trunk’ sister’s story!) though you don’t have to have read that series to make sense of this book.

I’m looking forward to more in the Arrow’s Edge MC and the On Call series from Freya as we’ve got a few characters that we’ve met so far who I just know are gonna make for interesting reading!!!

RELEASE BLITZ – Tracking Tahlula (On Call #3) by Freya Barker

 

Title: Tracking Tahlula
Series: (On Call #3)
Author: Freya Barker

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: November 12, 2019
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

As author Tahlula Rae has discovered; success is a double-edged sword. Leading a quiet and anonymous life, she isn’t prepared for the hateful backlash when her latest book hit the lists, propelling her into the limelight. No longer feeling safe in Denver, she takes her laptop and dog, Luke, and moves to the mountains around Durango, where her peaceful solitude is disrupted when a red-bearded man knocks on her door.

While one of the fire department’s finest, Evan Biel, is relatively content with his life, he can’t escape the sense something’s missing. When on fire-safety housecalls, he finds himself staring into a pair of soulful, copper-colored eyes sparking a deep interest. Discovering the exotic-looking woman may be in more trouble than he can handle, he tries—yet fails—to keep his distance.

When Tahlula offers San Antonio firefighters, Moose and Penelope Jacobs, temporary lodging, as they help fight seasonal wildfires, Evan’s relieved she’s no longer alone on the mountain. Yet when her troubles become outright threats on her life, his focus has to be keeping Tahlula safe.

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

Tahlula and Evan were great together. It was about time that guy found the right ‘ONE’ for him after all the hassle he’s had previously!!

I LOVE Freya Barker’s books. Her writing is real, relatable and full of ALL the feels. I adore that her characters are ‘people’ you could see yourself liking and being friends with and that all the things they go through in their lives are believable and could easily happen.

The story arc in this read is actually pretty relevant given all the things happening in the world at the moment which made it easy to ‘see’ what was going on being possible real, newsworthy events in RL.

The introduction of characters from Susan Stoker’s book world, the additions of new faces and catching up with some old favourites from previous books, coupled with this being an engaging, well written, page turning story makes for a 5* read for me!!!

★RELEASE BLITZ★ HWY 550 (La Plana County FBI ROCK POINT #3) by Freya Barker


Title: HWY 550
Series: La Plata County FBI ROCK POINT #3

Author: Freya Barker

Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: February 17th, 2019

Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Special Agent Luna Roosberg lives and breathes her job. Who needs a personal life when work is so rewarding?
When a new case sends her to investigate a local motorcycle club, covering as the president’s new flavor of the week, the lines between professional and personal quickly start to blur.
Although the Arrow’s Edge MC stays mostly on the right side of the law since Ouray took the gavel, the appearance of the feds at their gate can still rattle his cage.
When a string of robberies points squarely in Ouray’s direction, he’s forced to cooperate and put the blonde, prim and proper half-pint on the back of his bike.
With pressure mounting both in—and outside—the club, Ouray no longer knows who he can trust, except the woman who is shaking up his life—and stirring his blood.

 


 


BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy 

I finished this book with the biggest smile on my face!!!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Freya Barker keeps raising the bar when it comes to her books…. 

I’ll be the first to admit that I found it hard to connect or understand Luna Roosberg when we’ve previously met her in the series. I could never quite put my finger on why I couldn’t get a handle on her but Ms B worked her magic as usual and pretty much from the outset of HWY 550 and Luna’s character totally won me round.
She’s tough and brusque on the outside but we soon discover that this hardshell covers a very different woman! 

Ouray….man, what can I say about this guy!! He’s kinda brusque and tough himself but that’s a given seeing as he’s the president of an MC club, but he’s another one who has a completely different hidden centre, it’s just taken one particular woman to bring it to the fore (not that he lets everyone see the sweet, protective side of him that Luna releases – he has an image to protect after all!) 

With a couple of interesting and complex storylines running through the story, there was plenty of action and characters, new and old, that all added to the fun and made for a fabulous read. Hot, steamy and a touch of sweet with a load of heart, Freya let us catch up with favourites from previous stories and teasingly introduces us to a possible couple for a future book in the series….. YAY!!

As well written as you would most definitely expect from FB, this was another excellent instalment in the La Plana County FBI ROCK POINT series and I cannot wait to see what happens next! 

5*

COVER REVEAL ~ Elusive (Princess Presley Duet #1) By S.E. Hall

Title: Elusive
(Book 1 of the Princess Presley Duet)

Author: S.E. Hall

Genre: New Adult
Release Date: May 15, 2018
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.


Met her.
Got familiar.
Liked it.
A lot.

Wouldn’t mind some more.

Same ol’ story— they meet, roll around in the sheets, and get their happily ever after… or don’t— right?
So what makes ours any different?

Simple. This story involves one Presley Alexandra Beckett.

The woman who takes any and every damn thing I thought I knew and flips, twists, distorts, denies and defies it until I lose track of up from down.
Just when I start to think I’ve got her figured out… I uncover the real reason why Presley spends her life hiding behind a wall of sassy, stubborn deflection.

And now?
Now I fix it.
Free her.
Make her mine.
Whether she likes it or not.


 


“Oh, please,” she scoffs. “All those big thoughts, bigger words, smooth tongue of yours, you need the answer about as bad as I need a lesson in sarcasm. You’re lucky, given our current locale, that there’s not a damn thing better to talk about, so I’ll play too.” She smirks and tosses me a wink. “A date, so I’ve been told, is this thing where a guy picks a girl up and takes her somewhere. Out. Planned by him. Paid for by him. Showing up at a lame ass party I’m already at doesn’t count.”

“Why we still standing here then? Let’s leave. I’ll drive you back to your place, wait a second, walk my happy ass to the door and take ya out. Anywhere you want to go, name the place.” She ducks her head to hide her smile, unsuccessfully, and I jump on the return of her playful mood, moving in closer. Bodies reconnected, spark instant and electric as though the first, I slip a finger under her chin and tilt her pretty face up to gain her eyes. “Presley, it is happening this time. We’re happening. Gonna be together, and it’s gonna be amazing. You’re stubborn as hell, but so am I, especially when it comes to you. Not giving up again, so settle in, Sugar.”

“We’re too young to settle, Sutton. Know what that really means? Boring! Stuck. Out of obligation, ethics, whatever. Miserably doing the right thing. Sexting turns into daily checks on what sounds good for dinner. Sex itself? Once a week, missionary, after the routine TV show ends. Guy gets comfortable, starts farting in front of her, she rocks her designated ‘rag panties’ out in the open and tells him all about her cramps, and they both feel free to poop with the door open! Why would you set that inevitable wheel in motion any sooner than you absolutely have to?”
