UGLY LOVE BLOG TOUR!






When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

God DANGIT! Just when I thought Colleen Hoover couldn't write anything better...she proved me wrong tenfold. Ugly Love is a tear jerking masterpiece. It takes you up down and all around every single emotion you have. My face was COVERED with tears while I read the last few pages. Miles tore apart my heart, and then slowly started mending it back together. Tate ... gosh this girl has the patience of a saint to put up with Miles. But when Hoover writes her characters they are always perfectly paired for one another, Tate and Miles are like chocolate and peanut butter they just make sense. I hope Ugly Love moves you the way it moved me. This might just be my favorite book of the year.

Going the Distance Release Day!!!


Synopsis
Life has been a roller coaster for Gabriel ‘The Saint’ Vega. From surviving a hellish childhood, to reuniting with his lost brother, only to hit the struggle of helping him battle his drug addiction. Boxing saved Gabriel’s life, and just when his career hits the fast track, he finally finds love with Salem; at least for a short time. 

Social differences, obligations, and misguided good intentions tore Gabriel and Salem apart before they could ever really get started.

Will Gabriel be able to save his brother from the whirlpool of addiction that threatens to drag him under? Is Salem capable of breaking away from the ropes that bind her to doing what’s expected rather than what and whom she desires? Can Gabriel convince Salem that their mutual feelings are worth fighting for, and that together, they will be able to go the distance?

“I love you, Salem Harris. I love you more than I’ve ever loved anything in my lifetime. My heart beats for you, my body aches for you, and my soul would die without you. You are as important to my survival as the next breath I take. You’re the one, Salem, you… are… my one. What do you have to say about that?” My stomach immediately turns upside down at the admission of my true feelings for her. I’m on edge, waiting to hear her response to my confession.

BEAUTIFUL OBLIVION by Jamie McGuire  - on sale 7/1/14
Fiercely independent Camille “Cami” Camlin gladly moved on from her childhood before it was over. She has held down a job since before she could drive, and moved into her own apartment after her freshman year of college. Now tending bar at The Red Door, Cami doesn’t have time for much else besides work and classes, until a trip to see her boyfriend is cancelled, leaving her with a first weekend off in almost a year.

Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating co-eds before he even graduated high school. His friends wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trenton leaves campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt.

Eighteen months later, Trenton is living at home with his widower father, and works full-time at a local tattoo parlor to help with the bills. Just when he thinks his life is returning to normal, he notices Cami sitting alone at a table at The Red.

As the baby sister of four rowdy brothers, Cami believes she’ll have no problem keeping her new friendship with Trenton Maddox strictly platonic. But when a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever—even if she is the only reason their already broken family could fall apart.

In the first installment of the Maddox Brothers books, readers can experience the rush they felt reading Beautiful Disaster for the first time, all over again.

Review Hillbilly Rockstar




Country music star Devin McClain understands there’s a downside to life in the public eye, but the laidback Wyoming cowboy has never imagined he’d attract crazed fans who would do anything to garner his attention. When veiled threats become real, he agrees to hire a discreet security detail. But Devin is shocked when that bodyguard is a hard-bodied woman. He’s even more stunned to be attracted to the steely-eyed stunner.




Former soldier Liberty Masterson’s return to civilian life has been fraught with challenges until she lands a job with a prestigious security firm. But when she agrees to provide personal protection during a cross-country tour, she doesn’t realize she has signed up to masquerade as the playboy star’s girlfriend. Though she’s more comfortable in combat boots than high heels, she has no choice but to appear to be the sexy groupie Devin prefers.





Living in close quarters causes the chemistry between them to ignite, and Devin realizes he wants to turn their charade of a romance into reality. Although Liberty surrenders to his every whim behind closed doors, she fears the sexy country star doesn’t see the real her; and Devin can’t help but worry when the tour ends that there might not be enough between them to build something that won’t fade away....

4.5 Stars

Let me start by saying I am ashamed to admit I am book cover judger.  It's true I have very very many times judge a book solely off the cover. This books cover? At a store or online I totally would have passed it over, why? Truth be told I don't know. BUT. As luck would have it I was sent an ARC of this book AND it was COVERLESS! So I read it.  I'll also admit it took me a few weeks to get to it, BUT at the Chicago Author event a girl who I was in line with had also raved about this series which totally added to my intrigue! I've read Lorelei James recently (Bound & Unwound) and though I enjoyed those book immensely erotica just isn't my cup of tea,  SO I am happy to admit that while Hillybilly Rockstar is STEAMY AS ALL HELL, it seems more on the romance side to me. AND boy was it a romance.  It is the exactly what I look for in a book, a nice slow burn, they don't immediately jump into bed together, no they take their time get to know each other. It makes it feel so much more real to me. Sometimes lately I feel like books seem to be missing that part, and Hillbilly Rockstar has it in spades.  Devin in my heart and mind is exactly what you'd expect a country star to be and he isn't shy about it. Liberty is was not exactly what I was expecting. But together? These two make perfect sense.  Truthfully I don't know if I am making a whole lot of sense to you, so here it is plain as day. 
You like hot male leads?
You like Rockstars?
You like strong female leads?
You like mystery and intrigue?
You like it HOT HOT HOT?
 Then Hillbilly Rockstar is for you!








Lorelei James is the NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author of erotic westerns: the Rough Riders series, the Blacktop Cowboys series, and the erotic romances in the Mastered series. Lorelei lives in western South Dakota.

5 Stars

I read My Hunger before No In Between. That was wrong, but not completely 
screwed up. My Hunger takes place before No In Between, it's still during the 
time Chris and Sara are in Paris. We get to see that softerish side of Mark a 
little bit more (not much because hey it is Mark Compton after all) as well 
seeing his budding? Relationship with Crystal (who I think is his perfect match) 
continue on shaky ground. My hunger really starts to delve into the 
investigation process of what has happened to Rebecca, and it's not as cut and 
dry as we may have thought. A lot happens in My hunger and my serious 
recommendation is that you real ALL the books and novellas in the series so that 
you don't miss out on any important details (because there are so many) because 
if you did you would totally regret it.

Nowhere But Here NOW IN PAPERBACK!



A Chicago reporter in her mid-twenties unexpectedly finds love in Napa Valley when she’s assigned to spend a week with a famously reclusive genius.

Kate Corbin has lost her spark. From the outside, her life seems charmed. She has a handsome, long-term boyfriend and a budding journalism career at a popular Chicago newspaper. But in reality, her relationship is going nowhere, and she’s quickly losing motivation for what she once believed was her dream job. When her boyfriend dumps her unceremoniously, Kate loses all hope of finding love.

With no living family and few friends, Kate confides in her boss. Trusting that the hungry, ace reporter is buried somewhere deep inside, he gives Kate the opportunity to jumpstart her career. The assignment: to interview the famously reclusive R.J. Lawson, a wealthy tech genius who disappeared years ago but recently reemerged as a Napa Valley vintner. The week takes an unexpected turn, however, when Lawson refuses to divulge any information. Desperate for a lead, Kate turns to Jamie, a vineyard hand who shows her the romance of wine country—and stirs her aching heart. But his connection to Lawson is ambiguous, and when Jamie disappears before the end of the week, Kate is left to investigate another story: the truth behind the man who stole her heart.

USA TODAY bestselling author Renée Carlino explored love and heartbreak in her beautifully written debut Sweet Thing, and her newest novel does not disappoint. For fans of Colleen Hoover, K.A. Tucker, and Katja Millay, Nowhere But Here is a stirring and satisfying romance that you won’t want to put down.

If i had to describe Nowhere but Here in one word it would be

Beautiful 

Ever since reading the last word in Sweet Thing, I knew I had to have whatever it was that Renee was working on next. She is one truly gifted writer. In Nowhere but Here she paints to completely different pictures yet I was able to clearly visualize both settings with ease. When it comes to setting a tone or pace this book did that better then any I have read before. I went through the same emotions as Kate, I felt what she felt, there was one point of the story that I was literally bouncing as I read it in anticipation with Kate (you'll know it when you get there). Jamie sweet Jamie FREAKING ADORE him.  He is everything you could ask for, the bad boy without the bad. When Kate makes that observation it was one of my favorite moments.  

If you read Sweet Thing you have an idea of what to expect from Renee, emotions, amazing characters, epic love and real life.

I couldn't have asked for anything more.
