Release Blitz: Rhett by J.S. Cooper

RHETT-AVAILABLE-NOW✰★✰ Rhett is now live✰★✰

Rhett is a new standalone novel from New York Times Bestselling Author J. S. Cooper

I’m Rhett. I’m cocky because I can be. I’ve got it all: the looks, the money, the endurance. I’m the guy that every girl wants to be with, yet none of them have ever been able to tie me down. I don’t do love. I don’t do relationships. And I sure as hell will never do marriage. I’m all about the fast life and everything that entails. There’s a different woman in my bed every week. My friends are jealous of me. My enemies envy me. Everyone wants my life. And everything in my life is absolutely perfect. At least, that's what everyone thinks. Everything changed the day, Clementine O'Hara told me she was moving away. She’s my best friend. She was my first kiss in grade school. We share everything with each other. She's the only girl I haven't tried anything with because she's off-limits to me and my friends. Only, suddenly I'm seeing her in a different light. I’m Rhett and I don’t let anything get me down. Then one night changed everything and everything I thought I knew was called into question. All of a sudden, being Rhett didn’t mean so much anymore. All of a sudden my friendship with Clementine was in jeopardy and I wasn't sure what I was going to do.

Review: Whispering Wishes by Jennifer Miller


Be careful what you wish for...

Normally, Aspen Edwards will do anything for her free-spirited best friend, Mischa, but this feels like a bit much. The plan is simple, all Aspen has to do is write down a few affirmations and recite them during the New Moon. But as skeptical as Aspen is, a promise is a promise. So, she whispers each wish to the universe, pondering the possibilities of "what if." Who wouldn't want a promotion at work, a new home, or to become an irresistible sex goddess?

But Aspen’s luck doesn't change with the wishes, or the wind. Each of her whispered prayers produces disaster. She gets fired. Her car breaks down. She gets kicked out of her house. And of course there is the crap icing on the cake of doom, falling for flirtatious and sexy, Wes, who sees her as nothing more than his “little sis”. It might not be so bad if his house weren't the only place she had to go.

Unbeknownst to her, the universe has a few tricks up its sleeve, and Aspen's bad luck streak might just be putting her right where she needs to be!



This book had me laughing through the entire book.  This awesome romantic comedy is fast paced with characters that will have you falling in love with them from the very beginning.
Aspen’s best friend Mischa finally talks her into sending wishes into the universe.  Thinking that all of her wishes will come true, unfortunately the universe has a very different idea for Aspen’s life than she does.   Instead of getting the wishes, the universe does the complete opposite.
Thinking her life is falling apart, Aspen rents a room from the hot bartender at her new favorite bar, Wes.  Aspen thinks that Wes only has sisterly feeling towards her, while Wes thinks that Aspen only has brotherly feeling towards him.
Finally, Mischa tells Aspen take a change and tell Wes how she feels.  They have a little trouble at the end, but it all works out since they finally tell admit that they love each other.
Also included in a bonus scene in Wes’ point of view.

PURCHASE LINK: 





EXCERPT: 
I wipe my hands on my dress, staring at the numbers 806 on the gold metal plate. This is it, Audrey. You’ll walk in that door a girl and eventually come out a woman.
“I’m such a loser,” I mumble to myself, and twist the doorknob.
A man hops up from the love seat when I enter. He has dark hair and a defined, closely shaved jaw. He’s handsome, definitely not smelly or gross, and strangely familiar.
“Have we met before?” I blurt, trying to place him.
“Um… I don’t think so,” he says, flashing a heart-stopping smile. His eyes meet mine and they’re bluer than blue. Henry Cavill.
“Oh, I saw you going up the elevator last week.”
“Right. Of course, I remember that,” he says with an even brighter smile. Adorable dimples appear on his cheeks. He holds out his hand. “You were loitering in the lobby. I’m Graham.”
 I remember why I’m here and my face burns, surely, turning bright red. I take his hand anyway and say, “Audrey.”
“Right.”
“Right,” I repeat feeling like an idiot.
“Would you like to sit down?” he asks.
“I guess so, thanks.” I take the same spot as the other day but this time I sit in the middle, hoping he doesn’t try to sit next to me. What am I doing here?
Graham sits across from me and says, “I know this is all new for you, but please don’t be uncomfortable. Dr. Markson has told me all about your situation and I just want to help. I think together we have a really good chance of defeating your anxiety.”
His speech is so sincere and he’s giving me the most empathetic smile. I want to die of humiliation. Covering my face with my hands, I groan. “Oh God, this is so embarrassing.”
“Why?”
“Because you know I’m a defective misfit; and you’re here to help me with something I never share with anyone. Like ever, yet you’re just talking about it like its normal.”
“It’s your normal,” he says.
“Yeah. Whatever.” I cross my arms over my chest and nervously look around the room, anywhere but at him. I notice a small black journal on the coffee table. “What’s that?”
“Those are our instructions and guidelines for the day.” He picks the book up, and says, “Want me to read them?”
My stomach burns from anxiety. I want run from the room and never look back. “I guess we may as well see what this is all about.”

Blog Tour: Celestra Series by Addison Moore


PERFECT LOVE by Addison Moore

THE CELESTRA SERIES, book #8.5





When circumstances in Logan’s world lead to a life-altering event, he decides to be as forthright with his nephew, Gage, as possible. But there’s one person Logan doesn’t want to be forthright with, not now or ever—she’s the very person he lives to protect—Skyla Messenger. Willing to deal with the fallout of his actions, Logan chooses to remain silent…but fate has other plans.








“Go ahead.” Dudley motions to her. “Gift her one last kiss.”
I blow out a breath before bowing into her. It takes all of my strength to hover over her like this and not take her one more time. My heart, my body, and soul all ache for her with a bitter intensity, and we haven’t truly been separated yet.

“Skyla,” I whisper into her ear, hoping to God she’ll somehow hear me. “I love you more than the heavens love the sun and the moon,” the words choke from my throat like barbed wire. “You’ll always be my princess. We fought the angelic war, and we fought the beautiful war—the one with our hearts. I know we’ll win both.” My tears drip down over her skin and dissipate as quick as a vapor. “I’m going to make my way back to you. I don’t how, or when, but I promise you this—I swear on all that is holy I will make it happen. It isn’t over for us. I know this much is true.” I press a kiss over her lips, and the room shifts and spins until we’re back on Paragon, in my bedroom.

I pull back from the kiss as Skyla nestles into my bed, blissfully asleep, unaware of what’s just transpired—her cheeks still flush with the efforts of my love.

Release Blitz and Giveaway: Love, Tussles and Takedowns by Violet Duke

LoveTusslesTakedowns_Final5-14_EBOOKedit2   
From the author of the New York Times bestselling NICE GIRL series comes Book Two in the USA Today bestselling CACTUS CREEK series… 

LOVE, TUSSLES, AND TAKEDOWNS
 add-to-goodreads-button31 
He's a better fighter A fighter to the core, Hudson Reyes has collected enough battle scars now to last several lifetimes. But after his combat injuries retire him from the life he wasn't ready to give up, Hudson finds himself spending the carbon copy days of his new career as a Hollywood fight scene and weapons specialist just doing what he knows best: surviving. Until he meets her. The one woman who makes him want to live again. With wounds as deep as his own, she's a scrappy little thing--an angel-faced paradox that comes as a package deal with an offbeat town of admirably protective, but downright nosy folks. And a wicked roundhouse kick that's become intimately familiar with his head. ...but she has all the weapons. An antique arms authenticator by day and a self-defense instructor by night, Liana Lin has made a living turning the unthinkable demons of her past into the passions that fuel, and fill, her life. So when the unjustly handsome man she's been unable to stop thinking about literally takes her to the mat with martial arts styles unlike anything she's ever seen--pinning her with a molten hot stare that melts her like a marshmallow trapped between a graham cracker and a chocolate square--Lia flips into no-holds-barred fight mode. Because if one man could find a way to disarm her carefully-built defenses, it'd be him. Now if only they could stop sparring long enough to find out...

© Violet Duke, 2014
  “Used to be, I could handle a combat weapon with the kind of speed and precision that guys in my unit were gladly willing to trade their left nut for.” A hard edge darkened his expression for a brief moment before fading, softening when his gaze fell on her face again. “After the explosion, discovering that I wouldn’t ever have that level of fine motor control in my trigger hand again, or that I wouldn’t ever be able to fully process the feel of a weapon because of the nerve damage in my other hand…that just about destroyed me.”   He slid his hand over her skin gently. “But this—ˮ   She gasped, gripped the sheets to keep herself grounded mentally, emotionally. To keep her silly heart from acknowledging the fact that he was shattering her defenses with that one simple touch, owning her with the intense, single-minded focus his eyes held as they followed the path his fingers were tracing across her belly. Hungrily. Reverently.   “I thought that was the hardest thing I’d have to get over because of my injuries. But this right here,” he whispered, leaning down to wreck even more havoc on her senses by shadowing his touch with his words, his evil, evil lips only just barely skimming her flesh. “Not being able to do all the things I want to do to you with the pace and precision I want to with this hand…” She stopped breathing when she felt his other palm smooth up the back of her thigh. “And worse, not being able feel you fully with this one…”   “Hell, Lia. That’s killing me more than you can imagine.”
