BLOG TOUR ~ Wild For You by J.C. Reed

“Take me. Own me. Never let me wait.”
From New York Times Bestselling Author, J.C. Reed comes a brand-new standalone novel.
I’m an average girl.
He’s a famous bull rider.
He doesn’t know that I’m into him.
The first time Cash Boyd locks eyes with Erin Stone, sparks fly, and not only the clutch-at-your-sheets kind. There is something about Erin that makes him want to push her away while at the same time drives him wild for her. He’s a man of many things, but being helpless at the hands of a woman isn’t one of them. Finding himself at her mercy, he intends to make her job as hard as possible for her. 
Burning with desire for the one man who’s the shadow to her light, Erin gives in to Cash’s advances…even though she could be destroyed by the truth she’s afraid to disclose. Little does she know that there is also more than meets the eye to Cash and she might just get more than she bargained for.
Cash might be the best at taming bulls, but taming her heart could prove to be the greatest challenge of his life.

100 % Brandnew standalone! No Cliffhanger!


His eyes shimmer green, boring into me.
He’s beautiful.
And so deliciously close.
“Cash…” I start, but the words don’t quite find their way past my lips. How can I explain what his touch does to me when I don’t understand it myself?





I really enjoyed Wild For You. This was the first J.C. Reed book I’ve read but I’m sure it won’t be the last! 

Cash came across initially, to put it mildly, as an immature, moody, self centred git, but thankfully that wasn’t who he really was – though it took some work on Erin’s part to get to the heart of the guy! I could feel his annoyance with his situation and the frustration that was caused by his family’s gesture to try and get him back on his feet again so even though I could have smacked him a time of two, a little slack was given as I think I’d have been the same had I been in his shoes!

Erin was lovely, hard working, dedicated and patient when her charge was giving her the run around, she was a very likable and believable character – though I have to say I think she carried a lot on her shoulders that she shouldn’t have when it came to her ‘secret’. She knew that she should definitely not be getting involved with her patient but the chemistry and attraction between the pair was off the wall and she fell for the pita bullrider! 

This was a good read, packed with heat, banter and humour. I enjoyed the supporting characters and really wanted things to work out for Erin and Cash once he got over himself!

I’m giving Wild For You 4.5*

RELEASE DAY BLITZ ~ Some sort of Happy by Melanie Harlow


Some sort of Happy is LIVE!



Skylar Nixon is a twenty-seven year old failed actress with no Plan B. After a humiliating stint on a reality TV show crushes what’s left of her childhood dream, she finds herself back in her hometown with no money saved, no college degree, and no confidence she’s anything but a joke—a small town starlet who couldn’t hack it in the big city.
When she runs into former classmate Sebastian Pryce, she can’t believe the hot body and chiseled jaw belong to the shy, troubled loner she knew ten years before. He’s not exactly friendly at first, and she’s heard the rumors about his tragic past, but something in his sad eyes intrigues her. She only wants to get to know him better.
Until the night she wants more—and takes it. (Hard and deep. Twice.)
Are they just two lonely people seeking solace? Or can a disgraced beauty queen and flawed, frustrated man find some sort of happy ever after?
**SOME SORT OF HAPPY is a full-length, dual POV novel, complete with a happy ending.**





I’ve never read a Melanie Harlow book before starting Some Sort of Happy but I’ll be checking out her backlist now!!
Reading the blurb for this book I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect but whatever it was was way different from the story that I read and I have to say is one of my favourite reads of the past year!!!

SSOH was packed full of smokin’ hot sex – jeez, this pair nigh on burned out my kindle with their antics (which is always a fab thing in a book like this), laugh out loud funny moments, sweet and tender scenes, frustrating to the point of pulling your hair out chapters, but most of all the book was about 2 people finding their way through life to a place where they can be themselves and their own sort of happy!

Skylar – she was a little girl lost. The one who had always been told how wonderful she was until she left home to go turn her hand at being an actress… The one t.v show she made it on to didn’t work out well at all and now she’s slunk home to lick her wounds and try to figure out what her life is really about!

Sebastian – gods, I love my heroes a bit broken and in need of help so Mr. Pryce hit all of my buttons! Sebastian was the geeky kid at high school that most folk avoided ‘cos he was a bit ‘odd’. He grew up to be a complex, tormented man who had the capacity to love and live a happy life but he couldn’t believe that he was capable or worthy of either!

I adored both characters. Skylar’s family and the other characters in the book where a great supporting cast and I can’t wait to meet them again in the series!

Melanie had me on a bit of an emotional roller-coaster while reading ~ in tears at one point in particular only to turn the page and be laughing like a loon!
There was so much emotion, insight and depth to the character of Sebastian, you could tell reading that this story was written by someone who had experience of life with the condition and issues our hero was living with.
Sometimes, when we are dealing with an illness you have to find the funny, the lighter moments, the light at the end of the tunnel or you’d drown in the darkness and fear and that’s what MH did with the story between Skylar and Sebastian! (Boyoboy, sorry peeps, I didn’t mean to get too heavy on you there!!!)

Do yourself a big favour – pick this book up today – as I said earlier, this is up there with in my favourites of the year list and will be a definite re-read for a long time to come!

My rating ~ 5 huge HAPPY stars….. I’d give it more if I could!!!!!! ❤

Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her lipstick red, and her history with the naughty bits left in. When she’s not reading good books, she gets her kicks from TV series like Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Masters of Sex, Deadwood, Mad Men, and Downtown Abbey (although she wishes it were more HBO and less PBS). Melanie is the author of the FRENCHED contemporary romance series (FRENCHED, YANKED, FORKED) and the sexy historical series SPEAK EASY (SPEAK EASY, SPEAK LOW), set in the 1920s. She lifts her glass to romance readers and writers from her home near Detroit, MI, where she lives with her husband and two daughters.
