Review ~ Finding Fate by Kennedy L Mitchell

I received an ARC of Finding Fate by Kennedy L Mitchell. I couldn’t get into this book. I was a slow start with the back story. I’m not enjoying the going back and forth between before and present. For a romance book, it’s taking an awful long time to even get to the couple, they haven’t even met yet in the before. I’ve unfortunately lost interest. It’s too bad because I was looking forward to reading it.

About FINDING FATE

Three men hunt her. Two eager to harm and one desperate to save. Who will get to her first?

FINDING FATE is a sexy, standalone romantic suspense where love grows in the most unlikely of places.

Master hacker Fate Haley has one objective on her mind – vengeance. A year after an unthinkable tragedy destroys her family, Fate has the two men responsible in her sights and a plan in place to ensure they won’t slip through the CIA’s fingers again. At the edge of insanity, Fate’s prepared to risk it all until he slips in one dark night set on saving her.

Nash Bartley enjoys his new gig with the Contract Special Operations team. The constant travel and dangerous missions keep distance between him and any potential long-term relationship.

Attraction sizzles the moment the two meet and affection blooms during the long humid nights in the African jungle. When the evil zeroes in, Nash is forced to sacrifice a piece of himself to protect the woman he’s grown to love. But will it be enough to save them both?

Can this unlikely duo abandon their wounded pasts and let go of their secrets for a chance at a happily ever after?

Blog Tour ~ Wicked Wedding by Sawyer Bennett

WickedWedding-SBPRBANNER-BT.jpg

Wicked Wedding, an all-new sexy standalone novel, from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett is available NOW!

WickedWeddingCoverBW

It all started with a wedding…

Well, three weddings, to be exact. The one that happened, the one that went up in flames, and the one nobody saw coming.

Andrew Collings has seen a lot of things living in Vegas. Hell, he’s done a lot of things. But one thing he’s never witnessed is a beautiful brunette, hitchhiking her way into the city, wearing a wedding dress. Until now, that is.

Brynne Adams is running away from a broken heart. She expected a lot of things from her wedding day but finding photos of her fiancé and maid of honor and best man in a compromising position wasn’t one of them. She most certainly never imagined that she’d end up marrying the handsome stranger that rescued her from the side of the road that day.

Andrew and Brynne’s quick nuptials may have been the result of a drunken joke, but they soon realize that love can be found in the most unlikely of places if you just stop and take a chance.

* Wicked Wedding is the fourth STANDALONE NOVEL in the LEFT AT THE ALTAR series in a collaboration of six New York Times Bestselling Authors: J. S. Scott, Ruth Cardello, Raine Miller, Sawyer Bennett, Minx Malone, and Melody Anne.

Excerpt:

“Let me prop the door open and I’ll carry you over the threshold,” I tell Brynne as I press the keycard against the magnetic reader.

She giggles, a sound I normally find grating on a grown woman, but on Brynne it’s charming. Her cheeks are flushed, and her eyes are still sparkling with energy.“Well,you are very Thor-like, so a girl would be crazy to refuse to be carried over the threshold by her husband.”

That’s right. I’m her husband, but let’s rewind just a bit to detail how this all went down.

It took me exactly fifteen minutes and three phone calls to set things up, just as I promised her.

The first call was to the nicest, swankiest Vegas chapel that I could find with a Google search. I was advised we’d have to obtain a license at the Las Vegas Marriage Bureau for the low price of seventy-five dollars, and I wasn’t surprised in the least to learn it was open twenty-four hours a day on the weekends. I was able to arrange a limousine to pick us up, as well as an explosion of flowers within the chapel itself. When I gave my credit card number to the woman, I told her to go crazy on decor, but I specifically requested white calla lilies for the bride bouquet because Brynne told me those were her favorites.

The second call was to a jeweler where I was able to purchase two very simple wedding bands in gold. It’s a detail I probably could have ignored considering we both knew this was just for fun, but fuck it. I’m rich, which means I have the ability to make this as nice as I can for Brynne.

The third call was to my attorney, who explained annulment laws and assured me it was a fairly straightforward process. I’d have to institute the action—called a complaint—and if Brynne waives service, we can present our annulment request to the court to be approved after twenty days. It wasn’t immediate, but twenty days was nothing in the grand scheme of things.

By the time we took a limo to the marriage bureau, stood in line for about thirty minutes with other like minded folks, and then made our way to the chapel, we’d sobered up quite a bit.

“You sure you want to do this?” she asked me just before we went in.“I mean… it was a fun notion when we were a little more buzzed.”

“Hell yes,” I’d told her with a devilish grin.“Mostly so we can send a picture to the whore and the asshole.”

Her laugh was sparkling and beautiful and just a little evil, which made her infinitely more attractive to me.“It’s all in good fun with no risk,” I’d added on to assure her.

So we went in, both of us grinning like fools during the ceremony. It felt fake, because it was fake, but in some respects, it’s the most real thing I’ve ever done. Because what we were doing had real purpose. It was to give Brynne and her glorious wedding dress a moment to shine.

It became even more real when the minister—who was not dressed like Elvis, but was very dapper in a dark gray suit with an old-fashioned cravat tied at his neck—told us in a very cultured voice,“You may kiss the bride.”

Fuck.

I hadn’t thought about the kiss.

I mean, I’d thought of kissing her because she’s sexy and vibrant and smiling despite the fact she was shit on hard today. But I hadn’t thought about the“wedding kiss”. Because even though this is all fake, somehow a man giving us formal permission to put our mouths together to seal our marriage vows makes it very fucking real.

There was no hesitation. When my lips touched hers and she gave a tiny huff of pleasure, I realized I wanted to consummate this fake marriage very badly.

I did not, however, know if Brynne felt the same. Because today would probably go down as the worst and weirdest of her life, I wasn’t going to push. Instead, I took her out for a radically expensive late dinner and then we hit a popular jazz club where we listened to music.

And then it happened.

A slow song was played. A bluesy number people just sort of sway to, and I asked her to dance with me.

She accepted.

It was Brynne who kissed me. Slid her delicate fingers into my hair, went to her tiptoes in her gray tennis shoes with teal-blue accents, and pressed her mouth to mine. My mind reeled, and my cock started to twitch to attention as we swayed and kissed. The words were forming in my mind on how best to invite her into my bed without sounding like an opportunistic douche, but then it didn’t matter.

She pulled her mouth from mine, relaxing and tipping her head back to see me.“If we have sex tonight, does that ruin our chances of getting an annulment?”

I had no fucking clue what the answer was. It had never crossed my mind I might actually get the chance to fuck her, so I didn’t ask my attorney.

“Not that I know of,” I hedge. At least I didn’t flat-out lie to her.

“Good,” she said with a smile.“Let’s go to my hotel room.”

Review ~ Faking it by K. Bromberg

39725372This is only the second audio book I’ve listened to before reading the book first. I prefer to sit and read a book rather than listen to it. I find I concentrate better on what’s happening and am less likely to miss something. Faking it was releasing in audio first and I love all of Kristy’s books and couldn’t wait until January to read this one so I preordered the audio book and I’m so glad I did. Harlow and Zane are my new favourite K. Bromberg couple.

Zane is an arrogant playboy who can get any girl he wants. Women do just about anything to get his attention and often use him for his connections. Because of the relationship his parents have, Zane doesn’t believe in love. Harlow has dated her share of men who are only interested in sex, not the possibility of a happily ever after together. Her mother is a hopeless romantic, despite the fact her husband walked out on her and her daughter. Harlow wants to find her soulmate and have that happily ever after most women dream about. The two are thrown together and have to spend 24/7 together and pretend to be a couple in love.

I absolutely loved this audiobook. The narrators, Rupert Channing and Erin Mallon, were perfect for the story. Although I still prefer to read a book before listening to it, this audiobook has given me the confidence to continue to one click or preorder audio first books from my favourite authors.

Bromberg’s books get better and better. She never disappoints, always dragging you into the story making you forget everything thing else. I started this Audiobook on the way to work 2 mornings ago, fully intending to stop once I got to wok and continue on the drive home. I was 5 or 6 chapters in and was hooked already and listened to it while I could at work, having to pause in places so I could concentrate on my work and not miss anything from the book.

A definite must read (listen!)

Once upon a real good time by Lauren Blakely

41746809When I started Once Upon a real good time I instantly fell in love with Campbell and Mackenzie. It was such a treat to read a romance story about a couple who are in their mid thirties like myself. Often romance books are about single twenty somethings falling in love for the first time but this story was about thirty something single parents who turn their one night stand into more.

I have to say after reading the 2 bonus epilogues I was disappointed with the ending. I saw Lauren taking the book in 1 direction to end but she took it in another. I just read the bonus scene and now I know why the book ended the way it did. I’m happy again and I hope like with other standalone series we get to hear from this amazing couple in Cambell’s brother, Miller’s story Once upon a while thing. Make sure you read to the end of once upon a real good time, there’s a link for the bonus scene and the synopsis of Once upon a while thing.

The one thing I love about Lauren’s books is her ability to make you laugh and get all hot and bothered the next. She writes amazing romantic comedies that make you laugh out loud and swoon and this book was no different. A definite 5 star must read.

Surprise Cover Reveal: MEET CUTE by Helena Hunting

Meet Cute, an all-new sexy standalone from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is coming April 9th, 2019 and we have the adorable new cover!

MeetCute Final Cover.jpg

Synopsis

The New York Times bestselling author of Pucked and The Good Luck Charm delivers a Hollywood happily-ever-after where a famous heartthrob falls for his ultimate fangirl in this sexy standalone romantic comedy.

Talk about an embarrassing introduction. On her first day of law school, Kailyn ran – quite literally – into the actor she crushed on as a teenager, ending with him sprawled on top of her. Mortified to discover the Daxton Hughes was also a student in her class, her embarrassment over their meet-cute quickly turned into a friendship she never expected. Of course, she never saw his betrayal coming either…

Now, eight years later, Dax is in her office asking for legal advice. Despite her anger, Kailyn can’t help feeling sorry for the devastated man who just became sole guardian to his thirteen-year-old sister. But when her boss gets wind of Kailyn’s new celebrity client, there’s even more at stake than Dax’s custody issues: if she gets Dax to work at their firm, she’ll be promoted to partner.

The more time Kailyn spends with Dax and his sister, the more she starts to feel like a family, and the more she realizes the chemistry they had all those years ago is as fresh as ever. But will they be able to forgive the mistakes of the past, or will one betrayal lead to another?

Flirting with Forever by Kendall Ryan

41ntz2zTm9L

Flirting with Forever is a best friend’s to lovers’ story. Seven chapters into the book and I had already fallen for Cam. He’s such a sweetheart, always there for Natalie when she didn’t realize she needs him. Bringing her doughnuts just because, ordering her favorite take out when she’s down, fixing her car after hearing it wouldn’t start for her that morning. It just makes your heart swell.

This was a sweet love story told in both point of views. I love when authors do this, it’s so neat to see what the other character is thinking and if they are having the same feelings at the same time.  It was a quick and easy read. I felt it ended to soon and there could have been a little more before the epilogue but overall, I enjoyed the book.

I give this book a 4 star rating. It could have used a little more to the story. Highly recommend the book if your looking for a sweet romance book to get you out of a book hangover.
