Blurb
Creep. Freak. Crazy
Eyes.
I’ve heard it all.
Over the years,
they’ve slammed me with every demeaning name in the book. 
Their taunts warped
me like a steady stream of poison.
Anger replaced
anxiety as I started believing the cruelty spat my way. 
Until she showed up
and changed everything. 
Lennon Bennett is
pure innocence—warm sunshine breaking apart my stormy existence. 
She’s everything
good and maybe I can be too. 
For her. With her.
Because of her.
Lennon doesn’t know
I’m beckoned closer with each breath. She isn’t aware that I’m completely
consumed with her. 
It’s become my sole
purpose to protect her, by any means necessary. 
But if she
discovers the depth of my obsession, it will be the end of me.
So, I remain in the
shadows.
Waiting. Watching.
Wanting. 
She’ll be my first.
My last. My only.
Watch Me Follow is
a TOTAL standalone. 

~*~ TSC REVIEW~*~

4 STARS

This is the first book of Harloe’s that I’ve read, and I enjoyed it very much.I was very intrigued by the blurb, because it almost makes the book sound sinister.

But what you really get is a wonderful love story.

Lennon and Ryker are two great characters. One suffers from anxiety after years of being put down. The other is shy and way overprotected by parents. While you wouldn’t think these two would be a perfect fit, that’s exactly what they are.

I love Ryker’s “obsession” with Lennon. It sounds crazy to justify it, but his main goal is to keep her safe and make her smile. Lennon’s main goal is to get over being afraid of her own shadow. She feels safe with her anonymous admirer, and at some point, longs to know who it really is.

Their story will make your heart flutter, and make you wish for someone to love you as much as Ryker and Lennon love each other. They bring each other peace in the midst of madness, and calm  the chaos of their minds just by being in the same room. They are the kind of characters that you definitely want to see get their HEA.

Excerpt

 

He’s becoming really obvious.
 
The mystery man is here again, hidden in the shadows and out of clear sight, but I’m catching onto him.
 
After noticing him standing behind me the other day, the dark stranger has been appearing everywhere lately. I’m pretty sure this guy wants to get caught. Perhaps he’s been hanging nearby a lot longer and I’m just realizing it. My pulse beats wildly, the whooshing pounding in my ears as I continue watching him. This reaction isn’t from fear but rather a startling awareness of his recurring presence. I’m not scared of him, though most might be, and the need to know why snakes through my system.
 
We’ve been playing an intense game of hide-and-seek since that afternoon outside Aire Gardens almost a week ago. I’ll go somewhere—my studio, Brewed Awakenings, around campus, my apartment—and after settling in, begin searching for him. He’s always there, waiting to be spotted. Each time I find him, my belly tightens as a smile lights up my face. Discovering him out there, lingering in the background, has become something I really look forward to.
 
How didn’t I notice sooner?
 
Perhaps it’s my total inexperience with dating, and the opposite sex in general, that has me getting far too attached to these moments. I’m getting wrapped up in the fantasy of him, of what he represents. This stranger—Seek is what I’ve started calling him—is the closest thing to a boyfriend I’ve ever had. I find myself daydreaming about him, wondering who he really is, when did he find me, and most importantly—why me?
 
I press my palm flat against the cool glass and stare at him leaning against the large oak tree outside the Student Center. My thoughts are becoming more and more consumed with a guy I don’t even know—at least not really. Yet it seems like I do.

RELEASE BOOST & GIVEAWAY: DRIVE by Jacob Chance

 

Title: DRIVE
Author: Jacob Chance
Genre: Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 1, 2017

 

Blurb
Kissing a complete stranger shouldn’t be a life altering
experience, but with him it was. One look into his mischievous hazel eyes and
our lips were colliding without a second thought.
Now, months later, not only do I know his name, we’ve also
become friends. Good friends. The kind of friends that kiss and cuddle
together, all night long. The kind of friends that fantasize about being
horizontal or vertical…and very much naked.
I’d never been attracted to the football playing jocks, but
Nick’s different. When he’s not being a professional flirt, he’s undeniably
sweet and funny. For every excuse my mind comes up with to keep my distance, my
body finds two reasons to give him a chance.
Can he make the final drive into my heart or will I keep him
in the friend zone?

 ~*~TSC REVIEW~*~

5 STARS

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it over and over. Jacob has become my favorite male author. I LOVE his writing style.  And his character development gets better and better with each book. 

Nick has wormed his way into my heart and taken over Kyle’s place as my favorite BBF of Jacob’s.  He’s sexy, sporty and a closet chick-flick aficionado. He’s also generous, romantic and focused, especially when he wants something; and what he wants is Carter. 

Carter is – for a lack of a better word – lost. She’s trying to find her way back after catching her sleazy fiance in bed with her former best friend. To say she has trust issues with men would be a gross understatement. Being around Nick helps her get back to the Carter she wants to be. And as hard as she tries to keep Nick an arms length away, he keeps getting closer. 

These two are so perfect for each other. They have chemistry from the start, which in my opinion is so important in any relationship. What I love the most about their story is that they were friends long before they became lovers, and the bond between them only became stronger.  Drive is the perfect example of a great Rom/Com. 

If you want a great love story, one that will have  you laughing and make you warm and fuzzy, pick up Drive. You will get #Nickstracted too.

YOU COULD WIN

A KINDLE FIRE!!

NOW AVAILABLE

Amazon & Kindle Unlimited Exclusive

Drake
This marriage was supposed to be another business deal. My latest investment, a means to an end… I need an heir. Which means I want her belly swollen with my child before the year is out.

She was supposed to be my perfect little bride. Quiet. Uncomplicated. Unemotional.

I didn’t foresee the stunning firecracker who tumbled into my life and woke things in me I thought were long dead. I didn’t count on her turning my world upside down.

And I definitely didn’t plan on falling for this beauty.

Noriko
This marriage was supposed to be my sacrifice. A way to save my father, a means to an end… I need to remain childless. So I can exit the contract at the end of the year.

He was supposed to be a boring old man. Distant. Uncomplicated. Passionless.

I didn’t foresee the rude, arrogant and beautiful brute who made my body react like fire and smoke. I didn’t count on there being more underneath his gruff exterior.

And I’m definitely not supposed to fall in love with the beast.

This is a NEW story using old characters from the unpublished novel, Girl Wife Prisoner. This version has no Keir, no cheating and a Happily Ever After. Although this book is part of a series, it is a standalone novel.

 

~*~ TSC REVIEIW ~*~

4.5 STARS

This is the second book in Sienna’s Good Wife series, but it is a complete standalone.

Drake is facing health issues, and has a strict order from his doctor to slow down and spend time with loved ones. So he decides to get married. But it’s a business deal, like any other. 

Noriko is trying to find a way to save her ailing father, and her family. As the oldest of three girls in a very traditional Japanese family, its up to her.  When she decides to accept an offer of one year of marriage, her hope is that her father survives. One year, no attachments. 

Drake and Noriko have such a tumultuous start to their relationship.  Sienna throws lots of little curves to keep you on your toes. You never quite know what direction she’s taking these two.  Drake is over bearing, controlling, and somewhat closed off. He has demons that he’d rather bury than deal with, but Noriko challenges him, and you can’t help but cheer her on in doing so. 

I love what these two bring out in each other. I love watching their growth, not only personally, but together.  This is a modern day fairy tale that will leave you with a smile on your face. Another great book by Sienna. I can’t wait to see who she brings us next!

RELEASE, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: MISADVENTURES WITH A SUPER HERO by Angel Payne

Misadventures with a Super Hero
by
Angel Payne

 cover

Synopsis

Working the night shift at a five-star hotel in downtown Los Angeles, I get my fair share of weirdos. But none of
them prepared me for the night I met Bolt. He saved my life.
Now, he
s my super hero, the hunk Im yearning to thank in more creative ways than a damn kiss on the cheek.
Too bad he
s actually Reece Richards, my full-on nerd of a real-life boss.
He
s got some commitment issues thanks to his evil ex and global empire and from having to save the city from a
maniac out to destroy everything he loves.
But there
s something that just may interfere with all those plans. My heart.

~*~TSC REVIEW~*~

5 STARS
OMG!!! This book was SO incredibly fun to read!!
I love Angel and her writing style. And the fact that she brings us some SMOKING HOT heroes! Reece is definitely now on my list of top book-boyfriends!

Emmalina comes from a fairly pretentious family living in the OC, a county in Southern California. Growing up nothing more was expected of her than playing tennis, lunching with the ladies and marrying her kind. But she was determined to get out of Orange County and have MORE in her life. Landing a job at the Brocade, a high end hotel in the heart of LA, gets her one step closer to that dream.

Reece Richards is the youngest in the line of the Richards Empire. Taught from an early age to think of no one but himself, he’s the epitome of spoiled playboy. And that is what lands him in trouble and turns him into a freak with super powers. Determined to atone for his selfish lifestyle, Reece takes on a dual personality and vows to pay back society by cleaning up the city, one bad guy at a times.

This is a fun, quick read with Angel’s usual twist on the steam factor. I love the instant attraction between Reece and Emmalina. And what I love more is that where others in the hotel Reece runs think he’s weird, Emma embraces it. I’m not usually a sci/fi fan, but I love Angel and knew that I would like this book. While this is the third book in the Misadventures series, it’s 100% a standalone. I would love to see more of Reece and Emmalina in a future book!

BIG GIVEAWAY INCLUDED

TWO PRIZES, TWO WINNERS

 

My name is…was Alena Ivanova.

Five years ago, I made a mistake. A big one. One that cost me the only man I will ever love.

Now in the lonely moors of north England, I live with my cold, cruel husband. My only friend is his daughter from a previous marriage. At least I didn’t starve to death during the bitter Russian winter.

When my husband arranges for a potential investor to stay with us, a mysterious self-made millionaire by the name of Mr. Wolf, imagine my shock when he walks in…

My name is…was Dimitri Volkov.

Until she broke me.

Five years I’ve worked for this moment.

Five years I’ve dreamed of revenge.

Bit by bit, she will watch her charmed life crumble to the ground.

Then when she needs me the most, when she is desperate, scared and alone like I was all those years ago…

I will destroy her.

Although this book is part of a series, it is a standalone novel.

 

 

Beautiful Revenge Excerpt

I sneak into Dimitri’s bedroom after dinner, making sure I’m not seen. He’s standing by the side cabinet pouring himself a drink. His eyes darken when he sees me, rejection flashing in them like lightning. “What do you want?”

I close the door behind me and walk towards him, my steps shaky. My hands are clammy and I have to keep wiping them on my skirt. I have to stay strong. “I’m here to ask you, no…to beg you—”

“Alena Ivanova is begging me?” Dimitri leans against the wall, a cruel glint in his eyes. He lifts his drink to the air as if to salute me. “Do go on.”

“Please,” my voice warbles, “leave.”

“Leave this room?” he asks with mock surprise.

Bastard. He knows very well what I’m asking. “Leave this house. Do business with my husband if you must, but please, leave me,” and Emily, “alone.”

He stares at me, the right side of his lip lifting in a horrible half-smile. “Get on your knees.”

What?

“If you’re going to beg, do it properly.”

Dimitri drops to his knees in front of me. His face has cracked wide open, but it’s not anger showing raw and naked on his face.

It’s desperation.

“Alena,” he grabs my hand, “I beg of you, don’t do this.”

“Dimi, I—”

“Don’t marry him. Marry me.”

My breath catches in my lungs. Dimitri watches me from across the room over his scotch glass. From the darkness in his eyes, I can tell he’s remembering the same thing.

I stiffen. “You can’t be serious.”

“You want me to leave? Get. On. Your. Knees.”

He wants to crush me. To wound my pride like I did his. He is crueler than ever.

You did this to him.

I’ll do it if it will get him away from me, then I can just go back to my life. It was empty but at least I had Emily to love. Now, with him here, I can barely love her.

I slide to my knees. His eyes flash with fiery triumph. “Please, Dimitri. Please, leave.”

Dimitri places his drink on the side table and pushes off the wall, striding towards me. My breath turns to stone in my throat as he stands right before me. I am well aware of the suggestive position I am in. His cock is at eye level. I force myself not to look at it. Instead, I look up, locked into the intensity of his stare. I know he wants to demean me. To embarrass me. My body burns with the indignity of it. Heat pools between my legs.

I gasp when he places his fingertips on my cheek, a riot of sparks cascading from his touch. He brushes my hair off my face almost tenderly. My heart skitters with hope.

His perfect lips pull into a smile. “No.”

The bastard. I leap to my feet, my hands in fists by my side. “You told me you’d leave if I begged.”

“No,” he says in a bored tone, “I told you to beg on your knees. I made no promises as to the outcome of your begging.” He turns away as if to dismiss me.

My body shakes with rage. I grab his arm and whip him around to face me. “I’ll tell my husband who you are. He’ll kick you—”

“You tell him who I am and I’ll tell him we slept together.”

I gasp. “You wouldn’t.” My contract. If I’m deemed to have been promiscuous I lose everything. More than lose everything, I’ll owe my husband a hundred thousand pounds. It’s a debt I can never hope to crawl out of.

Dimitri’s eyes glitter with mad pleasure. He has me over a barrel. And he knows it. “Do you wish to test me?”

He would do it too. I can see it in his eyes. “Edgar won’t believe you,” I try.

Dimitri grabs my upper arms with his hands, gripping me tight as vices. “Really? What are you doing in my room, Mrs. Worthington?”

I struggle against him. “Let go.”

He pulls me closer, crushing me against his hard body. “Go on,” he says, “scream. Alert your husband to your presence in my room.”

Bastard.

I hate him. I struggle to knee him, to kick him. My damn skirt is in my way and he’s too close to get any leverage.

He’s much too close. All those old aches and wants flood back into my body. Five years I’ve dreamed of being this close to him again. His familiar touch, his familiar smell, his presence around me swilling like a poison. His touch burns me. He seeps into me. He sinks his teeth into my soul.

I am lightheaded. I need oxygen. I part my lips as I suck in air. His eyes dip to my mouth. Something flares in his eyes. Despite everything, he wants to give in to me too. I involuntarily lick my lips. His stare turns…ravenous.

He lets out a small hum, his lips vibrating along my skin as he traces them across my cheekbone towards my ear. “Mrs. Worthington.” His voice is like liquid. “Alena,” he whispers, almost tenderly, sending me back to five years ago. I can feel his grip loosening on my arms but he doesn’t pull away. The ache coils tighter in my stomach. His hands move up my arms, his thumbs tracing the outer swell of my breasts sending shivers through me. This soft Dimitri is dangerous, more dangerous than the cold stranger. He appears too much like the old Dimitri, the one I love. I feel my self-control unwinding, my fingers curling into his shirt, as he presses his arousal against my hip. I bite down on a moan. Despite everything, my body screams to give in to him.

“Well,” his breath tickles my ear, “if I’m going to accuse you of being a whore, you might as well be one.”

I shove him back. He lets go of me, laughing.

“You bastard.” My breath heaves out of my lungs, my neck and cheeks flaming red. He’s playing with me. Toying with me. I want to strangle him.

He smirks at me and shrugs. “At least I can admit what I am.”

His words reach into my chest and wring my heart. “If you won’t go, at least leave Emily alone.”

“She is the one who won’t leave me alone.”

You kissed her.”

He smiles at me, cold and hateful. “Are you jealous?”

“Why are you like this? How could you be so cruel? Why do you want to torment me?”

“Why? Why?” His face cracks apart. “You broke me,” he roars. “You destroyed me when you chose him over me. You filled me so full of bitter hatred, it is all that I taste. It’s all I breathe.” His voice trembles with anguish.

My heart breaks right there. His eyes so open and raw, I can see right into his charred soul. The pieces of his heart that I broke all those years ago are still jagged and sharp. With every breath he takes, they cut him, making him bleed from the inside.

“I’m sorry, Dimi. I’m so sorry.”

“It’s too fucking late for sorry. It’s five years too late.”

It can’t be too late. It can’t.

Love can triumph over hate. It can.

I reach out for him. My voice is pained as I beg—as I beg— “Dimi, please…”

“Get out,” he spits, causing me to snatch my hand back. “It would be very cruel for your husband to find you here alone with me in my bedroom. We wouldn’t want him to get any wrong ideas.”

“I am not a cheater, Dimitri. Don’t you dare insinuate that I am.”

“Just a whore, then.”

His words slap me across my face. Pain spreads from where they strike me. “Fuck you.”

“No, you never did get to give that to me, did you? You gave that pleasure to your worthless husband.”

When Dimitri arrived at Worthington Manor, my hope took flight. To see him again, after all these years, to know that he found me, that he came here for me. Even after I realised that he wanted revenge, I still believed. Even after every cruel word, I still hoped. I thought that I could get through to him. That he couldn’t stay angry at me forever. I thought deep down that we would finally get our happily ever after.

But I have flown too close to the sun, allowed my hopes to soar too high. Hope has melted and my heart has plunged towards the ground, swirling and twisting, until finally crashing on the sharp, jagged rocks.

He still wants me. He hates me more.

He will never forgive me.

He will never love me again.

5 STARS

If there is one thing that Sienna excels at – besides bringing us amazing, unforgettable characters, it’s keeping her readers on the edge. Her storytelling is like the ultimate build up, and the ending the best kind of release.

Alena and Dimitri, and this book is no different than her others. They will suck you into their lives, and leave you breathless, waiting to see what happens next. These two characters are so well written, so compelling, you can’t help but love them both for different reasons. The book flows so smoothly, that you will find yourself reading the entire thing in one sitting. I love the plot of their story, and the secondary characters make it all the more enjoyable.

I definitely don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll say this. READ THIS BOOK. If you love a good love story, one that’s filled with angst and heartbreak, but still gives you hope, this is the book for you. Sienna  is the queen of emotional roller coasters, and Beautiful Revenge is her latest thrill ride!

RELEASE BLITZ, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: CANVAS by Jacob Chance

 

Title: Canvas
Author: Jacob Chance
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 22, 2017
 

 

Blurb
 
Joshua Dawson is my best friend’s ex-boyfriend. That alone
should be reason enough for me to keep my distance. Add in that he’s a well
mannered, loyal and hardworking artist and I should be running in the other
direction.
 
He’s damn near perfect, and I prefer my men hard to love and
easy to leave. Josh’s only flaw is he wants forever, and for the first time I
might want the same. But loving someone doesn’t mean you deserve them.
 
He’s all I want and everything I can’t have.

5 STARS

It’s no secret I love Jacob’s writing. This book is just another to add to the list. 

If you’ve ever read Quake, then you’ll be familiar with some of the characters that are in this book. But even if you haven’t you won’t be lost because this is truly a stand-alone. 

I love the dynamic between Elle and Josh. There’s a lot of push and pull between them: She’s always trying to push him away, and he’s always trying to pull her closer.  There is a reason Elle is trying to keep him at arms length, and that’s where Jacobs trademark suspense element comes into it. 

I love both of these characters. They are both very well written, and fit together like puzzle pieces.  I also love that he brought back past characters, and again, you don’t need to know them to understand Canvas. 

This is definitely another masterpiece for Jacob, and as always, I’m looking forward to who he brings us next!
