All This Time by Kathy Coopmans

Title: All This Time
Series: Sweet Sin
Author: Kathy Coopmans
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Rockstar Romance

Some people claim to have their hearts ripped out of their chests. To feel the world shift under their feet. To feel intoxicated by love.

Miles Wittman, the bassist for the rock band Trained in Black, felt those things until the shift became a hole and dragged him into darkness.
His mind clouded by years of alcohol abuse, the man remembers very little of the last two years of his life.

Until her.
A woman from his past.
Julia Nulty, the band’s manager sister, the sexy, exotic plus-sized model.

Bits and pieces of his memory start to surface after the two of them are caught up in an unexpected photo shoot.
She’s rocked his world. He feels the shift. The intoxication.
But Miles, he has no recollection of the night they spent together. If he finds out the truth of what happened, it could possibly lead him back to the darkness.

 

**The Sweet Sin series is a series of interconnected standalone rockstar romances.**

Review by Candy:

Absolutely loved it!
When you’ve hit rock bottom and rise from the ashes and start over is how I would describe the story of Miles and Julia.
Miles lost his heart when he was 18 and never really recovered. He did one thing and joined a band with his friend and rocked into stardom, but his demons drove him to the bottom of the bottle. With the encouragement of his friends/band mates he finally got the help he needed to live again kinda.
Julia has known Miles for years but she realizes that he’s come back from rehab without the memory of her. She wishes he would remember but instead there is a game they play because the sexual tension is evident to everyone around them. She decides he needs to put up or be done and gives him the ultimatum.
Will these two move on together or apart?
Kathy well done with Miles and Julia. You wrote about everyday tragedy and abuse in it’s different forms and brought together two broken souls that were meant for each other. The flow of your writing kept me interested and wanting to know how the story was going to end. Your broken characters are lovable in every way with their strengths and weaknesses. 5 Stars!

Synopsis:

He thought he was done. His career as a special forces sniper was over. He’d lost his leg and his dignity in that ambush. Now, after nearly a year of rehab, he was fighting the toughest battle in his life: prove he was still worthy to serve.

His chance:

Contract with Fury Security to pull protection for a rancher by the name of Sam Bishop. If he succeeded in routing out the bad guy, Cord would be back on the team.

The bonus:

He’d be able to get the hell away from all the counselors and therapists trying to tell him how to come to grips with his PTSD and missing limb. There were no emotions and feelings in west Texas, just rough necks and grit. Exactly what he needed.

The catch:

Sam’s real name is Samantha and she’s not a codgy old man – she’s the one girl from Cord’s past he never got over. He thought he’d lost his chance with her, and now that he wasn’t a whole man, he didn’t deserve her.

Samantha is determined to show Cord he’s everything she ever wanted. Her biggest battle isn’t the stalker threatening her life: it’s making Cord see he’s worthy of her love and so much more.

Review by Susan:

I loved this book, I totally devoured it in one sitting, it was a quick read but it was long enough to cover the important parts, the story flows well and doesn’t feel rushed. I did wish it was a bit longer as I didn’t want it to end!! I was hooked from the first page and kept on the edge of my seat right till the end, this author writes amazing, complex stories that start off with a bang and continues on from there. it is also a second chance romance, the chemistry between Sam and Cord was off the charts and sizzles the pages. I loved the background characters, they helped to enhance the story and I hope we get to read more about them soon. This was another captivating read from this author, if you have never read anything by this author, one click this today, you won’t be disappointed.  5 Stars

Cry Baby by Ginger Scott

Check out this teaser for CRY BABY by Ginger Scott! Don’t forget to add it to your TBR!
Cry Baby by Ginger Scott
A Contemporary Young Adult Romance

Release day: June 22, 2018

Goodreads: http://bit.ly/2rjlag4

Blurb:

Tristan Lopez is loyal to his brothers. He doesn’t really have a choice, born into a gang that has a chokehold on every kid that roams its streets. He gave his life to them willingly, knowing if he did then one day this kingdom, led by boys drunk with power and ruled by fear, would all be his.

He was loyal through it all. Loyal when prison took his dad away. Loyal when his face was touched by the cold metal of the rival gang’s gun. Loyal even though his mom begged him to run the moment she returned home from rehab.

He thought about becoming someone else. It was hard not to crave the life of a regular 17-year-old. It’s the only reason he stayed in school—to pretend. But he always fell back in line.

Loyal.

Riley Rojas didn’t belong in Tristan’s real world. She should have only been part of the fantasy, one of the many faces he got to pretend with amidst rows of metal chairs and desks and whiteboards with assignments. But there she was, moving boxes from the back of an old pick-up into a house Tristan had shot up on a dare with his friends only a few months before.

Tall enough to look him in the eyes and strong enough to fill his shadow, Riley took up space on his streets, her loud mouth fearless in the face of the gang leaders who terrified everyone else. She pushed Tristan around on the hard court, and she balled better than his friends—better than him

sometimes. She challenged him. She needed him. He liked it. And when her pale blue eyes stared into his, he quit wanting to pretend.

He couldn’t ask her to leave because she’d only dig her heels in deeper. He couldn’t ask because he didn’t want her to go. She was blurring his lines. She was testing his loyalty.

He was falling in love.

And it was going to tear him apart.

Review by Paula:

What a amazing story! Lexi has had something awful happen to her that changes her life forever. Trying to keep going is a struggle daily. Cruz a amazing man that made my heart skip a beat by his love and strength. Two people that build each other up in a messed up world and I loved seeing it all open up for us to experience. A very deep book with serious issues that reminds us. Strength and love will get you through anything. 5 Stars

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Do you want to come in for a while?” I asked.

Cruz stepped just inside the door and closed it, but answered, “We both have a long week ahead of us and you’ve had a very busy weekend. I probably shouldn’t stay.”

I put my hands to Cruz’s chest and shared, “I had a really great time tonight, Cruz. Thank you for giving this to me.”

“Happy to give it to you.”

“Can I give you something now in return?”

I felt Cruz’s fingertips dig in slightly at my hips before his hands moved around my waist and pulled me into his body.

“All I want is to know that you had a good time tonight,” he began. “I don’t expect nor do I want you to do anything for me in return.”

Disappointed, I dropped my gaze from his and stared at his throat.

“Why do you look like I’ve just crushed all your hopes and dreams?” Cruz asked.

I shook my head, feeling frustrated.

Cruz squeezed me a little tighter. “Look at me, Lex.”

I did as he asked.

Then, I felt the back of his knuckles brush along my cheek as he urged, “Tell me why you’re sad.”

“I feel pretty tonight,” I started. “For the first time in a very long time, I feel sexy and confident. All I wanted to do was kiss you before you left.”

I barely got the words out when Cruz’s mouth came crashing down on mine. With his lips pressed to mine, I slid my hands up his chest and around his neck. As our mouths opened and our tongues began to taste each other, my body melted further into his. One of Cruz’s arms stayed wrapped tight around the upper part of my back, but the other one…oh, the other one. It dipped lower and lower until it slid down over the curve of my ass.

I loved it, so I gave him a moan as encouragement.

He gave me a gentle squeeze.

I really loved that.

After a bit more squeezing, kissing, and moaning, Cruz tore his mouth from mine. His forehead resting on mine, we both fought to catch our breath.

Cruz did it arguably faster than me because he started speaking. “Don’t keep it in, Lexi.”

“What?”

Pulling his head back from mine, he instructed, “With me, you don’t have to hide anything. Give in to what you feel, Princess, no matter what it is. Scared, sexy, or anything in between. It doesn’t matter what it is; if it’s in me to see you through that, I will.”

And of everything he did for me in the last few minutes, what he had just said was what I loved most.

“I feel like I’m dreaming, Cruz. Are you even real?”

“It’s time to wake up, warrior. I’m as real as it gets.”

Once those words slipped out of his mouth, he pressed a kiss to the tip of my nose and declared, “I’m going to head out now.”

I let the disappointment of that wash over me for about two seconds before Cruz added, “I had a fantastic time tonight. And you were, by far, the most beautiful woman in the restaurant. Don’t think I’m leaving because I don’t like what I see. This wasn’t about me and what I want. Tonight was about giving you what you needed…giving you what someone took from you. I hope you got that back.”

Warmth spread through me. “I did, Cruz. I got that and so much more.”

 

 

About the Author:

A.K. Evans is a married mother of two boys residing in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania. After graduating from Lafayette College in 2004 with two degrees (one in English and one in Economics & Business), she pursued a career in the insurance and financial services industry. Not long after, Evans realized the career was not for her. She went on to manage her husband’s performance automotive business and drive the shop race cars for the next thirteen years. While the business afforded her freedoms she wouldn’t necessarily have had in a typical 9-5 job, after eleven years she was no longer receiving personal fulfillment from her chosen career path. Following many discussions, lots of thought, and tons of encouragement, Andrea decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer.

Between her day job, writing, and homeschooling her two boys, Evans is left with very little free time. When she finds scraps of spare time, she enjoys reading, doing yoga, watching NY Rangers hockey, dancing, and vacationing with her family. Andrea, her husband, and her children are currently working on taking road trips to visit all 50 states (though, Alaska and Hawaii might require flights).

Liam by LeAnn Ashers

Title: Liam
Series: Devil Souls #4
Author: LeAnn Ashers
Genre: MC Romance (Stand alone)
Release Date: June 7, 2018

 

Paisley 

 

I met Liam when I was sixteen years old. There was something about him that tempted me to break all the rules. I was enthralled by his bad boy ways, but I knew there was so much more to him—a side of Liam that he didn’t allow people to see.
Little did I know, he’d save me on what could’ve been the worst day of my life. At that point, there was no going back. He was my everything. I felt safe in his arms.
Until someone tried to kill me.
Liam
I was only seventeen years old when I met Paisley, and I haven’t been able to keep my eyes off her ever since.
She was everything I wasn’t, but that didn’t stop me from wanting her, from making her mine. I’d love and protect her with my life.
The cartel started gunning for her, and that was the worst decision they could have made. They’ll never know what hit them…
Me.

Review by Susan:

Since reading about Liam and paisley in the first book of this series I have been greatly anticipating their story, it does not disappoint. Their story starts off at the beginning where Liam rescues Paisley from an attack by the school janitor, the attraction between the two of them is instant. The story follows them as they both go off separately to follow their dreams but they stay faithful to each other over that time. It is a MC story so there is some drama but the story is mainly about the love between the main characters, there’s no cheating, club whore drama, just a lot of love and chemistry that melts your kindle! Also there’s an amazing epilogue, this author does fab epilogues!

I love this series and I loved this couple, from the moment we met them as teens I have been rooting for them to get their happy ever after. I was sucked straight into the story and was totally invested in them as a couple, we get to see them blossom and bloom over the years, Liam is a growly, alpha male, he was wonderful!! Paisley has had a hard time over the years but with Liam home and behind her, she came into her own and became the amazing woman we knew she would. Another amazing read from this author, can’t wait for the next book in this series.  4 Stars

The Girl and Her Ren by Pepper Winters

TheGirl&HerRen-SBPRBANNER.jpg

The Girl and Her Ren by Pepper Winters
The Ribbon Duet Book 2
Publication Date: June 5th, 2018
Genre: Coming of Age Romance

ebook (1)

“What do you do when you write down all your secrets? No…that’s not enough. What do you do when you write down all your secrets and the one person who should never read them does?

I’ll tell you what you do.

You hope.”

REN

Ren didn’t know the meaning of love until he took Della for his own.

To begin with he hated her, but as the months bled into years, he learned the opposite of hate, dedicating his life to giving her everything.

Every sacrifice, every gift, he gave wholeheartedly.

But then love turned to lust and ruined everything.

DELLA

I was stupid to write my secrets down, but I’d been stupid before so it was nothing new.

I couldn’t blame him, hate him, fix him.

I tried to move on without him.

But no matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to delete the secrets I’d written.

Until something happened.

Until he came back and read my stupid secrets.

And nothing was the same after that.

Review by Paula:

First all of you have to read book one first The boy and his Ribbon this book leaves right off where it ended. Words are so hard to describe my feelings about this book. It’s beautiful, heartbreaking, and will leave you breathless. I’ve never read a book that made me feel the characters so much that I felt I was in the book dealing with everything with them. Ren and Della are characters that speak to your soul that make your heart beat and sum it up make you feel. I’ll never forget this series because I have never cried so much while reading a book that even writing this review I have tears. Read this series it will change your thoughts about love. I wish I could give this book 10 stars because it deserves it. 5 stars “Love transcends time, space, distance, universes”

 

Excerpt:

The fallen papers crunched beneath my boot as I shifted my weight, leaning into her, seeking an answer. “Why didn’t you tell me?”

She flinched, her eyes closing beneath an avalanche of pain.

This hurt.

Everything hurt.

“Della…please.” My calloused thumbs caressed her silky-soft skin, catching on her young perfection with my older imperfection.

Ten years separated us.

Ten years was an eternity when she was a babe and I was a boy, but now…it no longer held such power. I refused to let it because I didn’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t touch her the way I was touching her now.

She laughed quietly, full of torture and tragedy. “I did tell you. In a roundabout way.”

“You didn’t.”

“But I did.” She dared meet my eyes. “I never understood how I could touch you, hug you, kiss you, and you never knew. I didn’t know how I could hide my jealousy when you were with Cassie or later with your one-night stands. I lay awake at night analysing every sentence I said to you, amazed that you never heard what I’d been shouting for longer than I could remember.”

MMContractedBookCover6x9_MEDIUM

Synopsis: Years ago, I was burned by a woman.

I forgave, but I haven’t forgotten, and it’s a road I’ll never go down again.

My career has become my life instead. I’m Max Graham, the biggest music agent in the business. Women love me, but I don’t do love anymore. I’ve found another way to meet my needs.

Eve Kennedy—stylist to the stars and total bombshell. By far, she’s the most daring woman I’ve ever had in my bed with a sexual appetite as ferocious as mine.

We might just have the hottest sex life in Miami and LA.

We don’t date anyone else—although, sometimes, we invite someone for a night. We travel the world, and I lavish her with gifts. But she knows my career comes first.

And the best part? For the past two years, she’s been happy with our arrangement.

Or so I thought.

I’ve survived heartbreak once before, but this one could be the end of me.
