Ink & Lies by SL Jennings (Review & Giveaway)

Title: Ink & Lies
Series; Standalone
Author: SL Jennings
Release Date: February 9, 2016
Format: Ebook received for review
Pages: 249 per Amazon

From International Best Selling Romance Novelist, Hope Hughes, comes a gripping, heartfelt tale of two lovers, fighting for the freedom to…

No. Scratch that. Too cheesy.

…two people, torn apart by the tumultuous tides of life, only to discover refuge in…

WTF? What does that even mean? DELETE.

…two people, confused as shit as to where they should be and who they should love and none of this means a damn thing because it’s all lies!
Lies.
I’m not Hope Hughes. I’m not some fierce woman romance machine. Hell, I’m not even a woman. 
I’m a liar. 
And while I refuse to believe my own BS, deceit masked in heartfelt phrases of love and devotion, I want to make herbelieve them. Because maybe—just maybe—if she can find the soul within my words, she’ll also be able to find the truth scribbled on my heart. 
You see, I once lived for the perfect plot twist.
I just never expected to actually live it.
This is my story. Well, maybe her story. I just wish I could make it our story.
The one I’m still writing.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book.  SL Jennings wrote a story that felt different, full of romance, angst, and even humor. Based on this book alone, I would definitely pick up other titles of hers to read.

Unraveled by Jennifer Dawson (Excerpt & Giveaway)

Unraveled
Jennifer Dawson

Valentine’s night. Three women. A hot new club where anything can happen.

After a life changing tragedy Layla Hunter is finally happy. Michael Banks has pulled her back from the dead and given her a love she’d thought was lost to her forever. Now, all she wants is to return the favor and give him the one thing she swore she’d never do again.

Jillian Banks is up for absolutely anything and her smoking hot fiancĂ©, Leo Santoro, is determined to give it to her. After exploring her fantasies in the privacy of her own home, Jillian’s ready for more and Leo is going above and beyond to make her happy. In return, she’ll do anything to make him proud.

Ruby Stiles isn’t sure what she’s doing at a sex party at one of Chicago’s most anticipated new clubs. Currently she’s blaming it on curiosity. All she wants is to disappear into the background, only her emotions have decided to go on a roller coaster ride and the last thing she expects is for Chad Fellows to pick up the pieces.

Sometimes even the best laid plans unravel…

*While Unraveled can be read as a standalone for fun, it is best read after reading CRAVE and SINFUL

Happy Tuesday!!  Today I'm so excited to bring you an excerpt and giveaway for the release of Unraveled!  How beautiful is that cover?  I'm so excited to get into this series, I've heard fabulous things about it.  So tell me what you think!!

Misconduct by Penelope Douglas (Review)

Title: Misconduct
Series: Standalone
Author: Penelope Douglas
Release Date: Dec 1, 2015 - NAL
Pages: 368 per Goodreads
Format: EGalley

Former tennis player Easton Bradbury is trying to be the best teacher she can be, trying to reach her bored students and trying to forget her past. What brought her to this stage in her life isn’t important. She can’t let it be. But now one parent-teacher meeting may be her undoing…

Meeting Tyler Marek for the first time makes it easy for Easton to see why his son is having trouble in school. The man knows how to manage businesses and wealth, not a teenage boy. Or a young teacher, for that matter, though he tries to. And yet…there is something about him that draws Easton in—a hint of vulnerability, a flash of attraction, a spark that might burn.

Wanting him is taboo. Needing him is undeniable. And his long-awaited touch will weaken Easton’s resolve—and reveal what should stay hidden…

Penelope Douglas does it again.  Misconduct was a fabulous mix of so many things that I love.  If you want a story a bit taboo, a bit naughty, and packed with emotion, Douglas delivers.

Dare To Run by Jen McLaughlin (Review & Excerpt)

Title: Dare To Run
Series: The Sons of Steel Row #1
Author: Jen McLaughlin
Release Date: February 2, 2016 - Signet
Format: Print Galley
Pages: 316

She knows what he’s like on Boston’s mean streets. Now she’s going to find out if he’s got some heart.

Lucas Donahue is not ashamed of his criminal past, but after a brief stint in prison, he’s ready to go legit and live a normal life. The problem is, no one leaves the gang without permission—even if he is one of the boss’s top men. Plus someone’s placed a hit on him. And then there’s that feisty little bartender who’s going to cause him even more trouble.

Heidi Greene knows to keep her distance from a ladies’ man like Lucas—even if she can’t keep her eyes off him. When he rescues her from an attack in the alley outside her bar, she’s forced to stay by his side for safety. But the longer she spends time with him, the greater her chances are for getting hurt in more ways than one.


I'd read a bunch of books by Jen McLaughlin under her pen name, Diane Alberts, but this is my first one under this name. Can I just say that I really loved this book?  Lucas and Heidi were an awesome couple, and they helped make every page exciting.

By The Rules by Elisabeth Staab (Excerpt)

By The Rules
Elisabeth Staab

He thinks I want him because of the rumors around town. Because I think he’s easy. I want AJ, because he’s AJ.

No liars. No suits. Absolutely no straight guys…

AJ Fabin’s list of rules keeps him safe. Since getting kicked out of his parents’ home and a vicious attack by a former escorting client, his rules and his life in the tiny town of Evergreen Grove provide a quiet haven. He may be lonely, and he may stick out like a sore thumb, but the folks like him well enough. When he’s not dodging his old pimp, things are peaceful.

Hayden Price is having a quarter-life crisis. Engaged to a woman he can’t connect to and working a job he secretly hates, he comes to Evergreen Grove to help his mother through a health scare. Returning to his childhood home makes Hayden re-evaluate a lot of things, including himself. When he meets AJ and finds he can’t stand the mouthy jerk—almost as much as he can’t stop thinking about him—he has a lot more to change than his career.

To be together, they’ll both have to break all of their rules.

Good morning!! So a couple weeks ago I posted my review of By The Rules, which I absolutely adored.  Well today I have an excerpt for you, so you can get a taste of the wonderfulness that is AJ and Hayden!  Hope you enjoy!

I've been waiting since book one (At The Stars) to get AJ's story, and now I finally have!!  AJ has been this enigmatic and charismatic character since the beginning, and he grabbed my attention on every page he graced.  To say I loved his book would  be putting it lightly.  By The Rules is absolutely the best m/m romance I've read!

Resplendent Rush by Bella J (Cover Reveal)


Lexi is a vivacious, quirky, and fiercely independent woman with enough attitude and wit to intimidate even the most confident of men. Levi is a sexy-as-hell, cocksure, smoldering hot marine blessed with smooth swagger and cool confidence to charm his way into any woman’s bed. The one thing they have in common, though, is their disinterest in finding love. She’s determined to not let love interfere and dictate her life. And with his career, he doesn’t need the emotional ties and baggage of love, and dreams of white picket fences.

But a few chance encounters have these two tangled up in one wild, passionate, explosive ride which neither of them expected, and which leaves them completely and utterly addicted to each other. Already in too deep, Lexi stubbornly fights her growing feelings for him and refuses to become vulnerable against the power that love seems to yield. She has witnessed firsthand how loving someone can destroy a person, leaving him defenseless against a life of emotional turmoil. She refuses to let it happen to her.

Levi knows that Lexi is holding back. He knows that she is keeping a part of her heart guarded. He’s determined to burn down the walls she so desperately clings to, and make her surrender her all to him. But with his long-lost brother’s unexpected return comes an inexorable danger that he will do just about anything to protect her from—even if it means losing her, and in the end, breaking her heart.

Hey!  So not too long ago I reviewed Resplendent Ruin.  Now I am back with Resplendent Rush, which is the story of Lexi, Juliette's sister.  Lexi is a bit more wild and carefree, so I am definitely interested to see how this goes!!
