Book Blast & Giveaway: Perfectly You by Robin Daniels

  Perfectly You 

by Robin Daniels


 Ivy Nixon is the student body Vice President at Franklin High School. Each year, the school holds a date auction to raise funds for the senior class graduation party, and this year, Ivy’s in charge. Planning the event is a huge task and Ivy is determined to prove she can get the job done right. Unfortunately, she’s still one participant short and her deadline is looming. Andy Walker, her cute but socially reclusive art class table mate, is her last resort. He may not be popular, but he’s funny, talented, and full of surprises. With a makeover and some major social marketing, Ivy is sure he could fetch a decent price at the auction. Andy reluctantly agrees to help, but the more time Ivy spends with him, the more her feelings shift from professional to romantic in nature. To top it off, she’s done her marketing so well, that other girls are starting to notice Andy too. Come auction time, will Ivy be able to let him go to the highest bidder? Or will she find a way to keep him for herself… Content Description: This is a stand-alone YA contemporary romance with companion novels set at the same high school. It contains minor language, innuendo, and crude humor, some steamy kissing, a party scene where underage drinking is taking place, and a brief but tasteful conversation about sex. The author has attempted to write characters who make good choices in questionable situations, in effort to keep the content appropriate for teens. This book contains no sex, written or implied, and no explicit language. Recommended for ages 14 and up.

 

 EXCERPT I nodded my head. "I know, you're right. But I still have a problem in that I need another volunteer for the auction, regardless of Rob being on my case about it." Andy laid his charcoal on the table. "Ok, so let's solve your problem. There are about a dozen guys in here. Surely one of them would be an acceptable and willing volunteer?" I surveyed the room and gave Andy the play-by-play of my thoughts. "Let's see now. Curtis is so tall and gangly that his pants always look like they're waiting for a flood. Scott's a good artist, but in our limited interactions, I've drawn the conclusion that he has more bong residue in his head than brains. While cute, I'm pretty sure both Todd and Tim are gay, so the pool of seniors willing to bid on them would be exceptionally small. "And then, of course, there's Mason. Good old Mason, who just last week, I saw pick his nose and wipe the booger on the underside of his table." I scrunched up my nose in disgust. "Eeeew, no. Just...no." I finished scanning the male occupants and was more discouraged than when I started. I gave Andy my best pouty face. He laughed heartily, something I rarely heard from him. "I agree, Mason does not make the cut."

Title: Enforce
Series: The Force Duet #2
Authors: M. Malone & Nana Malone
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 29, 2017



Blurb

I am the shadow that haunts the night. I am a hunter, a protector…a force for good…I am Jonas Castillo.

And now that she’s mine, I’m never letting her go.

If only she would let me protect her…Seeing the fear in her eyes, makes me want to do the one thing I’ve vowed never to do again… kill.

But I’ll do anything to protect what’s mine.

The finale of The Force Duet. Must be read AFTER the first book, Force. 
My Review

It's a very addictive story full of suspense, twists and action. It must be read after the first book.
JJ feels guilty: her beloved god-daughter Isabella and her friends are in danger threatened by her ex-boyfriend, a very violent man who years ago tried to kill her. Isabella has been kidnapped and they must try to find her as soon as possible.
Jonas and JJ are two great characters with a strong chemistry. He is willing to do everything to avoid her to suffer even to break the law. She is strong, sincere, courageous. The other characters are lovable and engaging, I would love to read  stories about them.

Excerpt

Before Jonas could answer, they rounded the corner into the kitchen and stopped in their tracks. Ryan stood in the kitchen pouring a cup of coffee, but everyone else was sitting around the long oak table in the dining area.
Including Rafe.
“Good morning!” Lucia called. “I saved you some pancakes and bacon.”
JJ smiled gratefully at her friend, but Jonas could already see the pink inching up her cheeks. She rarely blushed, and most of the times he’d seen her do it had been over the last few days.
Because of Rafe. She blushed for that bastard.
“Thank you. We’re both starving.” Jonas turned to Lucia, determined to ignore the other side of the room. Until he heard a round of masculine laughter and his eyes were pulled over again.
Rafe smirked.
“I bet. Yo, we get it.  She’s yours and you’re the only one who can make her scream your name. But I don’t think they heard her in New Jersey.”
JJ blushed bright red and dropped the plate of food she was holding on the counter with a clatter. “I’m not hungry.”
“Rafe!” Lucia yelled.
Rafe looked slightly chagrined. “Come on blondie, I was just joking,” he yelled after JJ’s retreating form. A few seconds later, a door in the hallway closed firmly.
Jonas was across the room before he had a chance to think, and only Oskar stepping in his way stopped his momentum.
“Fuck you, man. What are you even doing here?”
“I work here, remember? And my sister lives here.” Rafe drawled lazily, as if the entire situation amused him.
That only infuriated Jonas more. The bastard acted like everything was a joke. Especially considering how long he’d been gone from his sister’s life. He thought he could flit in and out of his family’s life with no consequences? Jonas didn’t even know the whole story, but he was furious about Rafe’s actions on Lucia’s behalf. She’d mourned her brother for years.
“Your sister living here didn’t seem to influence your decisions at any other time in your life,” he pointed out.
Like a black cloud had just passed, the temperature in the room dropped a few degrees. Rafe stood slowly. “You don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about.”
“Why don’t you come over here and tell me then,” Jonas sneered.
Rafe laughed. “I think we all remember what happened the last time we fought. Can you see me now?”
Jonas growled and tried to push past Oskar. His eyes had fully recovered from whatever Rafe had thrown at him last year, but just the memory of that shit hurt. Months of built-up frustration were about to be released all at once. They’d accepted Rafe because Noah asked them to, but there was only so much a man could take. Even if he died in the attempt, it might be worth it to wipe the smug smile off that asshole’s face temporarily.
“Okay, settle down children. The real enemy is out there.” Noah appeared from somewhere, and a huge hand landed on Jonas’s chest, keeping him immobile. He leaned closer to whisper in Jonas’s ear. “Take a break. Calm down. I’ve got this.”
Jonas clenched his teeth before turning and stalking down the hall. He trusted Noah a hell of a lot. They’d walked through fire together, literally, and there was no one else he’d rather have covering his back. But Noah had sure as hell better handle it.
Because if he didn’t, Jonas would.

Review & Giveaway; That Spring in Paris by Ciji Ware

Ciji Ware

on Tour August 15-28 with
  That Spring in Paris

That Spring in Paris

(women’s fiction / romance) Release date: May 25, 2017 at Lion’s Paw Publishing ISBN: 978-0988940871 ebook: 978-0988940864 468 pages Website Goodreads

SYNOPSIS

Two Americans literally collide at the entrance to a Paris hospital, each desperately searching for friends felled in the same unspeakable tragedy. Patrick Finley Deschanel, an expatriate former U.S. Air Force pilot, quit the military after a career flying helicopter rescue missions in the Middle East. Now resident on a classic barge moored on the Seine, Finn is a man with both physical battle scars and psychic wounds that overshadow his day-to-day encounters at every turn. Juliet Thayer is a fledgling landscape painter who seeks escape from a tyrannical older brother and her job at his violent video war games company in San Francisco. Her emergency trip to Paris also raises doubts as to her impending engagement to a colleague where she serves as packaging design director and “Chief Branding Officer” of GatherGames, a highly speculative enterprise in which her parents are heavily invested. As Finn and Juliet form a tenuous attachment in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks that traumatized the French capital November 13, 2015, they wonder if the “City of Light” can provide a path out of the darkness for two emotional exiles who fear–along with the world at large—that their universe has descended into a permanent state of chaos and that the renewal of spring might never come. New York Times bestselling novelist and Emmy-award winning news producer Ciji Ware displays her formidable skill at weaving fact and fiction–delivering a gripping story about the discovery of love and regained serenity in the wake of horrifying events.

SYNOPSIS

It was an intense, engaging, dramatic, very deep reading: the author is very good at describing the feeling of insecurity, confusion, terror, rage following a terrorist attack.
Finn is an US soldier with deep internal wounds to heal. He decides to leave the army and retire to Paris to start a new life. He lives in a boat pursued by his nightmares, never a quiet and serene night. Until one night the son of the boat owner (a friend of his aunt Claudine) warns him of a terrible terrorist attack on the heart of Paris. His son is hurt and hospitalized in an American hospital and asks Finn if he can accompany him. Juliet lands in Paris on Monday after the terrorist attack, her friend asked for help, was injured, hospitalized in the American hospital. She no longer has news and must be sure she is fine. In the hospital she collides with Finn, a fortuitous distraction that will change forever the life of both.
It's the fourth book of the series "Four Seasons Quartet Book", I did not read the precedents but I'm really curious to do it, also because they are set in places I adore (Edinburgh, Cornwall, Venice)
This is the first book that I have read by this author but it won't be  the last: I've been impressed with her descriptions, it just seems to be there.
I really enjoyed this book. The characters are realistic and lovable, the plot is well written and well developed, the pace is fast: this book keeps glued to pages from start to finish.
Highly recommended

"Not since Nora Roberts has anyone been able to write a big family romance series with every book as good as the last! Bella Andre never disappoints!" Revolving Bookcase Reviews

THE LOOK OF LOVE
Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her in the middle of the rain storm must be too good to be true. Or is he?

As a successful photographer who frequently travels around the world, Chase Sullivan has his pick of beautiful women, and whenever he's home in San Francisco, one of his seven siblings is usually up for causing a little fun trouble. Chase thinks his life is great just as it is--until the night he finds Chloe and her totaled car on the side of the road in Napa Valley. Not only has he never met anyone so lovely, both inside and out, but he quickly realizes she has much bigger problems than her damaged car. Soon, he is willing to move mountains to love--and protect--her, but will she let him?
My Review

Great debut for this new series, a large, fun and very united family led by a great woman that alone has raised eight children
Chase is a professional photographer who loves photographing his family events. While going in the vineyard of his brother Marcus for a photo shoot meets a girl in trouble: during a strong storm her car went off the road and no longer restart. Chase finds her out of the  car wet and and can not help but help her. At the beginning she is reticent then accepts his help and the proposal to spend the night in his brother's vineyard. Chloe has no money and is running away from her ex-husband, is very suspicious but Chase knows how to calm her and reassure her. She is very attracted to him but she is scared. Chase's sweetness will heal her wounds?
Chase is charming and very protective, I loved the way he woos Chloe respecting her times and pushing her fears. Chloe was really hurt by men, especially from her former husband. She is a strong and determined woman but she is become frail because of a violent man.
I love big families and I was really excited to know the Sullivans, I can't wait to learn more about the other brothers.
It is a very sweet and romantic story with a great chemistry between the two protagonists



FROM THIS MOMENT ON
For thirty-six years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he's planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all.

Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name - Nico - for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only, what no one knows about the twenty-five year old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false. After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is...or hurt her again. Especially not the gorgeous stranger she meets at a nightclub, even though the hunger - and the sinful promises - in his dark eyes make her want to spill all her secrets.
My Review

I could not wait to returning to Napa Valley and learn more about Marcus, the eldest of Sullivan's large family. It was a reading, enjoyable, light, very fun and intriguing, perfect as summer reading.
Nico is a pop star but is also a simple and very lonely girl. Marcus is the pillar of the Sullivan family, he was about to marry before finding his girl in bed with another. Now what he needs is a night of pure fun. Nico also looks for the same thing. But the night they spend together will change them forever.
Nico and Marcus are wonderful people, perfect together. He is the largest of eight kids, his father died when they were little and he became the reference point and support of his whole family. She is a sexy, simple and gentle girl, naïve to trust the wrong people
A beautiful love story, it's a real page-turner.






CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE
Gabe Sullivan risks his life every day as a firefighter in San Francisco. But after learning a brutal lesson about professional boundaries, he knows better than to risk his heart to his fire victims ever again. Especially the brave mother and daughter he saved from a deadly apartment fire...and can't stop thinking about.

Megan Harris knows she owes the heroic firefighter everything for running into a burning building to save her and her seven-year-old daughter. Everything except her heart. Because after losing her navy pilot husband five years ago, she has vowed to never suffer through loving - and losing - a man with a dangerous job again.
My Review
Each book in this series is a pleasant discovery and it is also fun to meet again the protagonists of other books.
During a terrible fire Gabe risks his life to save Megan and her daughter Summer. She has lost everything but the smile and sweetness of her little girl give her the strength to face this new and difficult test. Megan and Gabe are attracted to each other but don't want to have a relationship: she has not yet recovered from her husband's death and Gabe had a bad experience with a relationship with a woman who he had rescued. Will they be able to resist temptation?
Megan is strong and determined, is proud to have grown up her wonderful little girl alone. She's a survivor, never gives up. Gabe is generous, willing to risk his life every day to save people. Summer is a very cute and smart little girl, tender and funny, really adorable, impossible no to attach to her. I also loved Mary, a present mother, sweet but not intrusive.
This is such an enjoyable story, well written in an easy-to-read style that is just what I need at the end of a busy day.

Review & Giveaway: Vaughn’s Pride by Selena Laurence


A damaged cowboy full of pride must find a way to be the man his childhood sweetheart's always needed, or come to terms with losing her forever.

Title: Vaughn’s Pride
Series: California Cowboys #2
Author: Selena Laurence
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 21, 2017
Length: 235 pages

Blurb:
She's waited a lifetime. Can she stop him from wasting one?
Vaughn Jenkins is the youngest in a long line of proud men. But he was only seventeen when his parents were killed during a storm on a California highway. Seven years later, another stormy night nearly took Vaughn's life. Now he's half a leg lighter, full of shame and doubt, and taking it out on everyone around him, even the woman he's loved most of his life.

T.J. Brisco is the girl next door. She and Vaughn grew up together, inseparable friends, then high school sweethearts. But when tragedy strikes, Vaughn retreats, and this time is no different. She's determined to help him recover from his devastating amputation, but Vaughn's not going to make it easy. When his anger becomes too much for T.J.'s shattered heart, she decides their story is over for good.

Now Vaughn is faced with the rest of his life—as an amputee, as a brother, as a man—and as T.J. moves on, Vaughn falls farther and farther behind. Can he learn to run fast enough to catch up to the only woman he'll ever love? Or will his pride stand in their way forever?

My Review:
It's a very exciting story with great characters and a strong plot.
Vaughn has lost his parents in a bad car accident. When he has almost overcome the trauma, a new upsetting event overwhelms him and drags him into the abyss of loneliness and suffering: because of a bad accident his leg is amputated. His brothers, his aunt and T.J., his best friend and almost girlfriend, try to make him smile back but it's not easy. She loves him but he doesn't want to be with her. But if she decides to go, is he willing to forever give up their love?
T.J. and Vaughn have grown up together and are really doing one for the other. However, he has always tried to move her away, as when he invited another girl to homecoming breaking her heart. Vaughn is a wounded man and very stubborn, closes in himself and prevents people near him to help him. His pride prevents him from living a beautiful love story.
I'm really enjoying this book and the tension and chemistry between the characters.  The story is really good,  very engaging thanks to the many flashbacks.
I recommend this book highly!


Excerpt:
He waved over his head and kept moving, looking down to make sure his leg didn’t get caught on anything in the crowded space. While the trajectory of his leg could be controlled well because he had an intact knee joint, he couldn’t feel if anything below his knee got knocked or caught when he was in close quarters. It made the navigating somewhat more difficult, and since he preferred not to fall on his ass in front of half the town, he kept his gaze down.
Which was why he knocked right into something, eliciting a squeak that jolted him out of his hyperfocused state. His hands shot out in reflex, and he caught whatever—whoever—it was as they stumbled. The other person’s weight pulled him off-balance, and he was forced to take another step, planting his good leg to keep upright. The extra step meant that his victim was now virtually under him, bent back in a slight dip as he held what was definitely a her.
His gaze moved up from a set of perfect breasts snug in stretchy azure fabric with a deep V in the front, and on to a neck that was smooth and slim. And then he reached the face, that face, the face that haunted him day in and day out, even when he wanted nothing more than to be free of it.

“Sorry,” he murmured as they stayed frozen in their embrace, T.J.’s big brown eyes blinking at him. But then his gaze dropped, against his will, to her breasts again, and he jerked both him and T.J. upright, setting her away as much as he could in the middle of the tables, stools, and people.

T.J. cleared her throat and smoothed her tight, short dress. Vaughn was caught speechless at the vision of his wholesome, lifelong best friend wearing something that looked like it belonged in a Los Angeles nightclub. The brilliant shade of blue contrasted with her black hair and golden skin, making her glow like some sort of goddess.
