Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Broken Prince [Cosa Nostra 01] by R.G. Angel!


Cassie 

Being the daughter of the Riverside monsters is a heavy cross to bear, one that twenty-one-year-old Cassie West can’t escape. But first she needs to get her ten-year-old brother out of social care. 
Social pariahs can’t be choosy and she finds a job as a live-in housekeeper at Hartfield Manor—a cursed job that no one wants. 
But as the days pass, she is intrigued and determined to figure out who is the man in the shadows. The mysterious owner of the manor whose obvious pain resonates with hers. 

Luca 

How the mighty have fallen. 
Luca Montanari turned from an adulated powerful mafia underboss to a recluse, clinically alcoholic beast with a death wish in the blink of an eye.
All he wants is to be left alone, to soak in his pain and guilt—in his own version of purgatory—until Cassie West enters his life. She is everything he doesn't want and everything he needs. The fiery redhead starts to bring back to life parts of him he wanted dead. The closer she gets, the harder it is to remain the ghost he’d become. 

Who better than the daughter of monsters to love a beast?

Release Day Blitz: Freefall [Wilde Boys Duet 02] by Sara Cate!


I’ve moved past what happened on Del Rey, and I’ve kept the secret of what I did—what we did—buried deep. But I’m afraid I’ll never move past what happened six months later in Amsterdam. 

When Ellis Prior, an old friend of my dad’s, walked back into my life, we became fast friends, and he showed me things I can’t forget—things that brought me to my knees. But I walked away from that life, and I never looked back. 

It's been three years, but I can no longer ignore it.
It awoke a hunger inside of me.
A craving for something new.
Something powerful.

Then, Hanna Thurber comes to Del Rey looking for a place to escape, and I’m all too eager to provide. This ballerina is anything but delicate, and the chemistry between us is electric. 

But the past won’t stay dead, and Ellis Prior finds his way to the island too. Suddenly, there is something pulling the three of us together. What starts as innocent and fun turns into an attraction that is undeniably forbidden. 

There are no secrets on the island. 
There is only us. 
And the truth I can no longer ignore.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: She's Still the One by Kaci Rose!


Bro Code Rule #1 – You can’t have your best friend's younger sister.

Austin
What is it that guys I date don’t seem to understand what a causal relationship is?
That doesn’t mean to propose to me. This is why I packed up everything into my car and I’m now heading to my brothers.
Only he’s not there. His best friend Dallas is.
Dammit, he’s the reason none of my relationships have worked out. I compare them all to how he treats me.
When they go on tour and drag me along it’s hard to hide feelings in the small space of a tour bus. But my brother has made it very clear.
Dallas is no good for me. We both risk losing my brother if we go any further.

Dallas
It sucks when you can’t have the one girl you love.
When the band I started with Austin’s brother took off girls were easy. It was less messy having flings.
Then she moves into the house with us.
Even when her brother has made it perfectly clear she is off limits I can’t seem to stay away.
She is still the only one who makes my heart race.
When her life is on the line because of the band's fame can we put our differences aside long enough to save her?
Can I convince them both I’ve changed, and I will be a one-woman man the rest of my days if she just chooses me?

Release Tour & Giveaway: First Comes Loathe [Blue Collar Bensons 01] by Lilly Atlas!


Conceited. Harlot. Easy. Addict.

A-list Hollywood actress, Scarlett, has been called every name in the book. Most she’s earned with her attention-seeking antics, high-maintenance personality, and bed-hopping. But even the most glamorous and sought-after actress can have a vulnerable center hidden beneath the glittery exterior. Years in the spotlight have battered Scarlett into a woman she no longer recognizes. Hitting rock bottom in a humiliating public display finally wakes her up to the disaster her life has become. It’s time for Scarlett to hang up her stage name, move somewhere no one will find her, and start over as plain old Michaela Hudson.

If there’s one thing mechanic Keith Benson hates, it’s a rich woman who thinks the world should bow at her feet. Someone like that hot mess of an actress Scarlett who can’t take a breath without wanting her adoring fans to shower her with love. Pretentious women make him sick. But he finds a doozy when he comes to the rescue of a standard motorist. Within five seconds, the gorgeous Michaela rubs him the wrong way. He wants no part of her, no matter how his body responds. Unfortunately, she moves onto his block and quickly befriends his siblings. He has enough problems, including an abusive father bent on screwing up Keith’s life. The last thing he needs is an uppity neighbor he hates but can’t get off his mind.

While settling into her new life is smoother than Michaela feared, it’s not all sunshine and smiles. She’s always worried someone will discover her true identity, and she can’t stop thinking about the grouchy neighbor she angered after long her first night in town. While she hopes to remain anonymous for as long as possible, she can’t avoid Keith forever. With a little work, they develop a tentative friendship, which turns complicated once they give into the scorching heat between them.

As they cautiously grow closer, Keith’s problems bleed into Michaela’s issues, wreaking havoc on an already tenuous connection. Is there any chance for the disgraced Hollywood star and the man who loathes her?

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Rebel Rook [Everyday Heroes World] by Ren Alexander!


Dylan McGrath, rookie cop with something to prove and everything to lose.

Dumped. There, I said it. The day after my twenty-first birthday, my girlfriend of two years ditched me in front of an audience of coworkers and customers. For my response, I demolished a printer, a worthless job, and my sanity. Drinking my sorrows in a park with my BFF, a cop throws me into the back of a cruiser. It’s not my first ride or my greatest achievement, angering legendary law enforcement swarming my family tree, but who cares? Smelling fresh blood in the water, self-righteous, law-abiding family and friends gang up on me, drawing a line in the sand with a deal. Doing the unthinkable yet inevitable, I take it, but not without a fight.

Graduating from the police academy, I clash with field training officers who hand me off faster than a live grenade. Though my job is to enforce laws, I love to break rules and refuse to follow any leader. Now, on the verge of losing this job and embarrassing my family, the revered Malones, I’m reassigned to the Dragon, a tough sergeant who hates me for existing on her dime.

Vowing to make it through training, that notion is blown to smithereens when a gorgeous waitress graces my table. Natalia Welch wants nothing to do with me, distrusting police officers. Due to her horrifying past and association with certain people, the Dragon, my brother, and my cousin warn me to stay away from her. As if they’d stop me. Breaking through Natalia’s hard shell, we attempt a friendship that ignites until she freaks out after discovering our age difference. However, we find the more she avoids me, the more we crave each other, leading to a passionate explosion that could end my career or her life.

When she enters his world… will she be able to find her way out?

Will she even want to?
