Rrelease Blitz - Shades Of Dragon




Shades Of Dragon

Blurb:
Abandoned by his mother as a young boy and taken in by the elders of the Redwater clan, Tegan isn't your typical hero. In fact, if you ask him, he wouldn't call himself a hero at all.  Yet when he is asked to investigate the outcome of an attack on the nearby human villages, what he discovers invokes the rage of a thousand storms, and he finds himself on the run with a beautiful stranger.

Tegan may be half dragon, half human, but he's all heart.  If he doesn't stay focused on the mission at hand, he will find that the curvy woman he's determined to protect, could be on her way to stealing it.

On the run, they must fight their way to safety before time runs out. Tick, tock.

Blurb:

Frustrated by a recent breakup, Risha escapes to the peace and tranquility of Mount Folknore, one of the most challenging to climb, and at the top of her bucket list of things to do. What better time to climb a mountain, and say goodbye to the world below than after a rough breakup?

Except peace and tranquility isn't exactly what she finds when she meets up with not one, but two, wildly handsome strangers. She's heard the legends that talk of werewolves that live deep within the forest, but could those stories be true? If there’s one thing she’s certain of, it’s that Colt and Jericho are hiding a secret.  When a rainstorm destroys her camp, and she winds up fleeing to the shelter of a nearby cabin, she may uncover more than she bargained for.

And every woman knows that there is no better place to be than in the arms of a sinfully possessive man... except perhaps, between two wolves.

The Scam by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

ABOUT THE BOOK


Nicolas Fox is a charming con man and master thief on the run. Kate O’Hare is the FBI agent who is hot on his trail. At least that’s what everyone thinks. In reality, Fox and O’Hare are secretly working together to bring down super-criminals the law can’t touch. Criminals like brutal casino magnate Evan Trace.

 Evan Trace is running a money-laundering operation through his casino in Macau. Some of his best customers are mobsters, dictators, and global terrorists. Nick and Kate will have to go deep undercover as high-stakes gamblers, wagering millions of dollars—and their lives—in an attempt to topple Trace’s empire.


 It’s a scam that will take Fox and O’Hare from the Las Vegas strip, to the sun-soaked beaches of Oahu’s North Shore, and into the dark back alleys of Macau. Their only backup—a self-absorbed actor, a Somali pirate, and Kate’s father, an ex-soldier who believes a rocket launcher is the best way to solve every problem. What could possibly go wrong?

REVIEW


Another great action packed story with Nick, Kate, and the gang.  This time, they take on a Vegas Casino owner and the Hawaiian mafia.  As always this group of misfits offeer an entertaining story and the Evanovich and Goldberg team have written funny and engaging characters.  The story felt a little slow at times, and for the most part, keep the reader engaged throughout.

Book Review - Following her by Melody Anne

ABOUT THE BOOK


The newest sexy e-novella in the Unexpected Heroes series by New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne!

Ella was a woman Axel wouldn’t mind shadowing day and night—especially night.

Ella Brooks is strong-willed, independent, and stubborn, and when she hears something she’s not supposed to about her shady boyfriend, her safety is at risk. Much to her dismay, her cousin sends FBI Agent Axel Carlson to keep an eye on her. Ella’s determined to resist the infuriatingly sexy bodyguard—she can take care of herself!—but she soon discovers that beneath the six-pack abs and amazing biceps lies an equally amazing heart. But will a mysterious threat keep them from finding their happily ever after?

REVIEW

I was surprised about how easily this story flowed and it turned out to be a short, fun, and humorous read.  In the first few pages I was immediately distracted by why Axel would leave his beach vacation to help out his partner to follow his unwilling cousin.  While that question was never really answered for me, the story did feel natural from that point on.   My only additional complaint is that the story felt brief and slightly rushed

Book Review – Just a Little Kiss by Renita Pizzitola

ABOUT THE BOOK

In the sizzling new novel of Renita Pizzitola’s Crush series, Felicity knows that “Summer Boys” are only good for one thing. But what if hooking up with the right guy could lead to a fresh start?
 
Like most of the residents of her dead-end beach town, Felicity Daniels doesn’t know what she wants from her future. Instead of college, she’s waiting tables at the local grille where she’s more likely to run into the guy who was the love of her life—until one decision changed everything. Now as this year’s tourist season kicks in to high gear, Felicity realizes that whatever she wants isn't going to be found here.
 
Mason Hayes is the quintessential Summer Boy: hot, impulsive, and born without strings attached. While in town helping with the family fishing charter, he plans to have a little fun—and hopefully get over a certain girl. He’s never had a long-term relationship, but when he meets Felicity, he wonders if he’s found the girl who could change that.
 
With her heart still in repair, Felicity’s happy to have a distraction like Mason, but her best friend thinks he could also be her ticket out of this town. What’s the harm in using him to escape more than just her boredom? After all, he is just a Summer Boy, and they never stick around. But after one kiss, Felicity wonders if only one summer with Mason will ever really be enough.



REVIEW


Mason and Felicity have such a sweet and sometimes sexy story.  These characters feel very realistic and are easy to identify with and feel close to.  Mason is the good guy every girl is looking for, and Felicity has real issues that every girl goes through.  The story is well developed and is a great summer read.

Book Review - Blurred Lines by Lauren Layne

ABOUT THE BOOK

When Parker Blanton meets Ben Olsen during her freshman year of college, the connection is immediate—and platonic. Six years later, they're still best friends, sharing an apartment in Portland's trendy Northwest District as they happily settle into adult life. But when Parker's boyfriend dumps her out of the blue, she starts to wonder about Ben's no-strings-attached approach to dating. The trouble is, even with Ben as her wingman, Parker can't seem to get the hang of casual sex—until she tries it with him.

The arrangement works perfectly . . . at first. The sex is mind-blowing, and their friendship remains as solid as ever, without any of the usual messy romantic entanglements. But when Parker's ex decides he wants her back, Ben is shocked by a fierce stab of possessiveness. And when Ben starts seeing a girl from work, Parker finds herself plagued by unfamiliar jealousy. With their friendship on the rocks for the first time, Parker and Ben face an alarming truth: Maybe they can't go back. And maybe, deep down, they never want to.



REVIEW

I was sure that I was going to hate this book after reading the first few pages.  As a fan of Lauren Layne, I continued reading even though I was sure I knew how the story was going to end.  I shouldn't have doubted Layne's writing magic.  This story is so much more than a guy and a girl who turn friendship into something more.  The friendship between Parker and Ben is one of my favorite parts of the story, the romance just becomes the bonus.  Blurred Lines is a wonderful romantic comedy about friendship, love, and growing up.

Book Review - A Taste of Sugar by Marina Adair

ABOUT THE BOOK

From the author of the nationally bestselling St. Helena Vineyard series and the Heroes of St. Helena series comes a sexy new book from Marina Adair set in Sugar, Georgia...

A blast from her past . . .

Charlotte Holden, Sugar's favorite pediatrician, knows better than anyone that love only leads to heartbreak. Instead, she's focused on creating the Grow Clinic, an outpatient center for children. All she has to do now is to host the best Founder's Day Parade in the history of Sugar, Georgia, to win over a big-city donor. Easy as peach pie. Then sexy Jace McGraw blows back into town and utters those three words every woman dreads: we're still married.

. . . leads to tantalizing trouble
Jace McGraw was making an offer on his dream business in Atlanta when he was told that his wife had some credit issues. Wait, his wife? The annulment went through years ago-or so he thought. He'd walked away only to keep his troublemaker reputation from ruining her dreams. But now that they have a second chance, Jace offers Charlotte a deal: he'll grant a discreet divorce in exchange for 30 days and nights of marriage. Because this time he isn't going to let her go without a fight.



REVIEW


Fun second chance romance!  Charlotte is back from the previous book and we finally get to hear the story behind her and Jace.  Charlotte and Jace never got over each other from when they were together, and secretly married, the first time.  But both are sure that they couldn't ever work out long term and are determined to stay away from each other.  What could go wrong?  Needless to say they aren't able to ignore the attraction that they have for each other.  Marina Adair creates an entertaining story about getting over the past and navigating family politics.
