Kade Cantrill is a soldier, a nomad without a Chapter to call home. The Savage Angels MC have welcomed him to Tourmaline though he has never felt compelled to stay in one place for long. But that was before he met her. If there’s one person who can convince Kade to stay, it’s Destiny Bennett.
Deaths Minions have a new leader, Adriel. Their numbers have increased and he’s going to take back all the business the Savage Angels stole from his club. Adriel intends to start a war and he doesn’t care who or what gets in his way. Least of all, Destiny.
Destiny Bennett has always attracted the bad boys and when she finds herself at the center of an MC war, Kade must act quickly to save her from the wrath of Adriel.
Will this Savage Lover expel his own demons to be the one Destiny needs to heal her brokenness? Or will Kade continue to allow his past to haunt him and extinguish any hope of a happily ever after?

Release Week Blitz & Giveaway: Walk the Edge [Thunder Road 02] by Katie McGarry!

One moment of recklessness will change their worlds.

Smart. Responsible. That's seventeen-year-old Breanna's role in her large family, and heaven forbid she put a toe out of line. Until one night of shockingly un-Breanna-like behavior puts her into a vicious cyber-bully's line of fire—and brings fellow senior Thomas "Razor" Turner into her life.

Razor lives for the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, and good girls like Breanna just don't belong. But when he learns she's being blackmailed over a compromising picture of the two of them—a picture that turns one unexpected and beautiful moment into ugliness—he knows it's time to step outside the rules.

And so they make a pact: he'll help her track down her blackmailer, and in return she'll help him seek answers to the mystery that's haunted him—one that not even his club brothers have been willing to discuss. But the more time they spend together, the more their feelings grow. And suddenly they're both walking the edge of discovering who they really are, what they want, and where they're going from here.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Soaked [Water's Edge 02] by Stacy Kestwick!

   The bartender was my new best friend. I frowned. Well, after Rue. And Theo. My third best-est friend. Because she kept pouring me these great margaritas.
   I normally hated margaritas.
   But Alison? My third best-est friend? She made some damn good ones. And there were so many flavors! Lime was okay. Mango was better. Watermelon wasn’t that great, but I drank it anyway because I didn’t want to hurt its feelings. I was almost finished with blood orange and it might have been my favorite, but I still had two flavors to go, so who knew?
   The only thing I needed to decide on was whether pink lemonade or pineapple was next.
   Wasn’t pineapple supposed to make cum taste sweeter?
   Wait — that only worked if the guy drank it. Right?
   I couldn’t remember now.
   And it was fucking glorious.
   Alison was my new third best-est friend and blood orange margaritas were the shit.
   Best. Night. Ever.
   I swung my head around when I heard the stool next to me being slid across the terracotta-tiled floor and almost lost my balance.
   But Nick caught me.
   Niiiiiiick. He looked nice tonight. Tight, dark shirt. Fitted khakis. I could kind of see the outline of his bulge against the fabric.
   It wasn’t bad.
   West had a nice bulge too.
   I wrinkled my forehead. No. I shook my head. No.
   Not thinking about him tonight.
   Hey! Nick was here. Maybe he could drink the pineapple margarita and help me remember. I could get the pink lemonade one then.
   I grinned up at him, and poked him in the chest with my finger.
   “Alison!” I yelled. “This guy—” poke “—needs a pineapple margarita. And I’ll take the lemonade one next.”
   She raised an eyebrow and looked at Nick for confirmation.
   Nick with the bulge.
   He leaned closer to me. “Why pineapple?”
   I rolled my eyes. “Because I can’t remember. And this will solve the problem!”
   “Can’t remember what?”
   “If it’ll make you taste sweeter.”
   He stared at me, then coughed. “Do you mean—”
   I leaned over and patted his lap. “Down here.”
Having hope was her weakness.
If Sadie Mullins hadn’t started to believe in love again, hadn’t let herself fall for him,
she wouldn’t be feeling this way.
Wouldn’t have her heart breaking.
Wouldn’t regret meeting West Montgomery
The cocky bastard should have left her alone, let her forget about him.
Let her move on with her life.
Of course, he didn’t.
That could have been the end of it.
Of course, it wasn’t.
Damn hope.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: All that Jazz [Butler Cove 01] by Natasha Boyd!


The Summer I turned 18
   Joey shook his head. “This is a really fucking bad idea,” he muttered before leaning down and taking my mouth with his.
   My heart raced.
   He moved in front of me. His hand slid into my hair behind my head and his lower body connected with mine, pressing me against the railing.
   Oh, God.
   My arms skated up his biceps to his hard shoulders until they grasped at his neck.
   I was terrified he’d suddenly raise his head and stop kissing me. The feel of him against me, against my body, the heat of his mouth, the skin of his neck under my fingers was like what I imagined a hit of ecstasy felt like. It was sudden and overwhelming and euphoric. I let out a low moan of need, my mouth opening under his. God, yes.
   His hands tightened on me. He lifted his mouth fractionally as if the sound shocked him. His eyes were dark, his brow furrowed. We each took a breath against each other’s mouths.
   I licked my bottom lip. Please let him not stop, I want more. I leaned up and nipped at his mouth.
   He let out a shallow breath that caught. “A really, really bad idea,” he murmured before his mouth was on mine again. His tongue licked into me. His hands couldn’t seem to find where to hold me as they moved from my hair, to my back, to my face. He held my face, angling my mouth to suit him. Jesus. My body strained against his without me even meaning to. I felt his erection thick and heavy between us. Holy shit. Yes. I pressed closer. Damn, he tasted good. I kissed him back with everything I had like I could imprint the taste and feel of him on me forever.
   His mouth pulled from mine, his wet lips and hot breath skating to my ear and down my neck. I held his head, my fingers slipping into his silky hair.
   “But really, really … really good,” I whispered, gasping as his teeth and tongue worked down my neck. The sound of his ragged breathing almost did me in as much as the feel of it against my skin.
   “Fuck,” he murmured, his tone tortured as if he had no will against what he was doing.
   An aching and relentless need had taken root low in my belly. The urge to open my legs and wrap them around him, seeking relief was almost becoming tunnel-like. I could barely think. How had a simple kiss moved from hot to … this … in less than two minutes? This was no kiss for anyone’s benefit. This was no favor. This was pure, raw, unadulterated want. This was what I wanted sex to feel like. This was not even close to how it felt when Chase kissed me. Chase was definitely the wrong choice. Joey. I wanted this with Joey. I wanted him to be my first. The sudden image of him naked on me, my legs wrapped around him as he kissed me like this, went off like a lust-bomb in my stomach and I whimpered—a strange tortured sound.
   Fisting my hands in his hair, I pulled his face back to mine. His hips rocked against me, and his tongue sank into my mouth. We kissed, and we kissed. It was like we couldn’t stop. He became my air, and I thought I’d rather die kissing him than ever breathe again.
There’s something totally inconvenient about falling for your best friend’s brother. Especially when he’s turned into a pompous, arrogant, albeit annoyingly sexy a-hole that you’d like to punch or kiss to death at any given moment.

Jazz Fraser learned her lesson early on that men can’t be trusted to stick around. First her father, and then her first love. Finally over her childhood infatuation with Joey Butler, her best friend’s older brother, she’s looking forward to the end of college and fulfilling her dream of traveling the world. She’s determined that experiences and relationships wil be fun, casual and easy. But when her best friend gets herself into a relationship with a celebrity, Jazz has to do the one thing she never thought she’d do, call Joey and ask for help.

Repeatedly thrown together, Jazz tries everything she can to protect her heart and not fall back in love with Joey. But when Joey finally admits that Jazz is the one he’s always wanted, all bets are off.

Release Day Blitz & Review: Why Now? [Love Riddles 01] by Carey Heywood!

Publication date: 22nd March 2016
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: He was my everything.
I loved him.
For over twenty years.
And everyone knew, including him.

But he never loved me back.
Not once.
Not ever.

So I moved on.

Until now.
Now he's back, and wants to make me his.

He's everything I've ever wanted.

I should be happy.
But there's one problem.
My fiancé.
I've read a few of this author's books and I loved them when I did, so I couldn't wait to read more from her! This book didn't have a cover when I signed up to review it as part of the Release Day Blitz, but the synopsis was definitely enough to make me want to read it! I'm so happy I signed up to review this book because I loved it! It did take me a few chapters to get into it, but I loved it once I did! The plot was also amazing! It did take a while to get going and for us to find out all the secrets and stuff, but there was a lot of chemistry and hot scenes between the two main characters! There were also a few twist and turns too, and there was a big one near the end that I didn't expect! It did add a lot to the plot and it taught the characters to live in the moment! Overall, I really enjoyed the plot and it only took me a few sittings to read! The characters were also amazing and I connected really well with them! Kacey was the main female character, and she agreed to marry a guy that she only loved as a friend! Kacey did this to help her friend and I could understand why she did it! She didn't love him though and she had always had a massive crush on her best friend's brother! She didn't tell him though because she was embarrassed by it and she thought that he wouldn't want a relationship with her! Kacey also had some tough decisions to make in this book, and this made her feel like she was being pulled in two different directions! She made the right decision though! Well, I thought she did lol! Jake was the main male character, and he was really hot and definitely book boyfriend material! Jake also had a lot of pressure on his shoulders in this book and this made me feel really sorry for him! He worked very hard to pay off things that he had to and to provide for his sister! Jake also had some insane amount of love for Kacey, and it was easy to see this as the book progressed! He was also protective of Kacey and he didn't pressure her and he let their relationship progress at her pace! This made me have a lot of respect for Jake and love him even more! There was also a love triangle in this book that played a big part! It didn't really feel like a love triangle to me though because Kacey only loved one of the guys! I also loved that this book was written from both Kacey and Jake's point of views! I thought that it was only going to be written from one point of view after I read the synopsis, but I'm really happy it was written from dual point of view! It helped me connect with the characters more and allowed for more to happen in the plot! I also thought that this book was a standalone when I first heard about it, but it's actually the first book in a series! I'm really happy it's the start of a series and I can't wait to read the next book! The cover for this book is stunning! I loved it as soon as saw it and it suits the book perfectly! The models on the front are also perfect too! Big thank you to Carey and Southern Belle Promotions for an ARC of Why Now?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Breaking the Story [Scottie's Adventures 02] by Ashley Farley!

   Guy navigated his way through the crowd to where Scottie was seated. "Well now, isn't this a coincidence?" he said.
   She looked up from her martini. "Unless, of course, you're stalking me."
   "Ouch. Hostile." He took a step back. "What happened to you in the hours since we last met?"
   She jabbed at the olive with the pick in her martini. "Trust me, you don't want to know."
   "Oh, but I do," he said, placing his hand over his heart. "The way I remember it, you owe me a drink for changing your tire. You even said you should buy it."
   "All right, fine." When the woman next to her got up and left, Scottie extended an empty hand to the barstool. "You might as well sit down. I'll buy you a drink. Then we'll be even."
   Guy slid onto the bar stool and signaled the bartender. "I'll have a Dewars on the rocks. And bring the lady another of whatever she's having." He glanced down at her glass. "What are you having?"
   "Tequila martinis. My third."
   "Whoa. What's with the serious mood? You might as well tell me. I'll keep guessing until you do."
   She drained the last of her drink and set the glass down on the bar. "Trust me, you don't want to hear this drama."
   "Why don't you let me make that decision?"
Passion, peril, and a scandal that will rock American politics.

Scottie Darden’s life is a disaster. Her marriage has become toxic, and her career as a photojournalist has stalled out. To attract the attention of the main players in the news industry, she needs a standout story with a unique perspective. What she finds is a scandal that could turn the 2016 presidential election upside down. But before she can release her damaging images to the media, Scottie must uncover the truth behind the photographs. She turns to handsome mystery man Guy Jordan for help. When they join the campaign trail in search of answers, their investigation quickly becomes deadly.

Hop on board for a wild ride of adventure where desire ignites, lives are threatened, and secrets are revealed.
